Officer: You booked him already?
Second Officer: Chief wants him in his cell, pronto.
First Officer: Park him over there. I'm not ready for him yet.
Michael: Yeah, well, don't bother with the paperwork. My lawyer's on his way and he'll have me out of here in five minutes, so take your time.
Officer: Sit down, shut up.
Michael: You know, I didn't do anything wrong, and I dare anybody here to prove that I did.
Jack: Oh, my God. Oh, not Bianca. No.
Anna: I took her statement this morning, Jack.
Erica: We all thought that Cambias would come after me again, or Kendall, but he hunted Bianca down and he found her alone and locked her in, and he raped her.
Anna: Jack, no! Wait, Jack --
Jack: You're dead, you bastard! You're dead, you hear me? You're dead!
Officer: Come on, come on.
Michael: What is this? Does this look like impartial justice to anybody here?
Jack: You want partial justice?
Anna: That's enough! Stop!
Michael: What about you, Chief Devane? Huh? Is this part of your routine, too?
Anna: Get him out of here.
Michael: You know what, this is --
Anna: Get him out of here now.
Michael: This is so bogus. Come on. I am being framed for something that never happened.
Anna: Get out.
Anna: Jack! Ok, ok, ok, sorry. Come on. Stop it, stop it! All right, we're fine now. I just got done telling Aidan not to give Cambias any excuse to call himself a victim because that way he walks. Our job is to put him away.
Jack: You don't tell me what our job is. I know what our job is.
Anna: I have to tell you what our job is. I know this is very hard for you. It's hard for me. Just calm down.
Jack: Just give me the police report and anything else you've got. Please.
Anna: Are you all right?
Jack: Yes, I'm fine. I'm fine, Anna. I promise you, I'm fine. Just get me what I need, all right?
Anna: You'll stay?
Jack: Go get him.
Jack: Erica. I'm sorry. Come here. Please come here. I'm so, so sorry. Shh.
Lena: You ready?
Myrtle: Now, chickens, off you go, and have fun!
Maggie: Oh, have the best time.
Maggie: Go, go, go! We love you.
Bianca: We love you, too.
Maggie: Have a wonderful time.
Myrtle: Darling, can I help you?
Lena: Oh, yes. Yes, at least I hope so. Myrtle, I don't know who else to turn to.
Myrtle: What is it?
Lena: Tell me about Bianca. Is she all right?
Myrtle: Haven't you talked to her?
Lena: No. I thought it best not to keep trying. She doesn't want to speak to me, obviously. But I can't give up on her. I just can't.
Myrtle: I think you're right not to.
Lena: I don't want you to break any confidences, but I know how close you are to her. Has she said anything to you about me? You know, I've been racking my brain trying to work out what it is that's caused this change in her. Do you know anything, Myrtle? Has something happened that I don't know about?
Myrtle: I'm afraid you may be right.
Lena: So there is something?
Boyd: Yeah, I'll let her know you're here. Myrtle, there are some policemen outside that want to talk to you.
Myrtle: Please, yes. Can I help you?
Man: Yes, are you Mrs. Fargate?
Myrtle: I am, yes.
Man: I'm Detective Israel. I have a warrant to search your house. Now, I'm going to ask you to clear the premises.
Myrtle: What is this about?
Det. Israel: Your living room is a crime scene, and my forensics team needs to search for evidence.
Myrtle: Oh, dear Lord.
Det. Israel: Ma'am?
Myrtle: Yes, yes, of course. Come in, come in.
Lena: Myrtle, what's happening? What --
Boyd: Myrtle, do you know what's going on?
Myrtle: Oh, my God. My God, it -- it happened here.
Bianca: Get out. Stop it. No!
Maggie: Bianca? I'm sorry. Did you have another nightmare?
Bianca: Yeah. He was here again. He won't leave me alone.
Maggie: They're not getting better?
Bianca: No, they're not. I can't take those pills that David prescribed anymore. They're -- they just make everything so much more real.
Maggie: Ok, well, you just won't take them anymore.
Bianca: Then I'm not going to sleep at all.
Maggie: It's going to be ok. Everything's going to be ok. Michael Cambias was just arrested, so he won't --
Bianca: Michael Cambias was just arrested. That means that there's just going to be more questions. More people are going to want to know every single detail from that night.
Maggie: You relax, ok? Just take -- take a deep breath, ok?
Bianca: I hate this.
Maggie: I know.
Bianca: I mean, not just for me. I hate the pain in my mother's eyes. It's her nightmare come to life.
Maggie: Yes, but remember what she said. She wants you to fight and she wants to do it with you, for your sake and hers.
Bianca: Yeah, well, of course she said that, Maggie. What else was she going to say?
Maggie: It makes sense.
Bianca: Nothing makes sense.
Maggie: It seems to me the worst thing that you could possibly do is to hold on to all of this. Your mother -- she lived with her secret for years. She's still living with it.
Bianca: Yes, and I've brought it all back for her.
Maggie: That's not how it works. You have to get rid of this. You have to cut it away. And your mother -- she's telling you the way to do that is to speak up and don't be afraid, to do what she wasn't able to do.
Bianca: I can't believe that she was 14 years old.
Maggie: Yes, but she lived through it. Look at this wonderful, brilliant life that she's had after being through all of that. And that's because she's strong, and you inherited that strength through her. You did.
[Knock on door]
Maggie: It's ok. Just sit. I'll get it.
Bianca: It's time, isn't it?
David: Yeah. I know this is going to be hard.
Bianca: David, you have no idea.
David: But it is important, Bianca. We need to make sure you're ok.
Bianca: I know.
David: And the sooner the better.
Bianca: I know. I just don't know if I can do this.
Maggie: Come on. I'm going to be with you, ok?
Bianca: Ok. All right, let's go.
Jack: We will fix this.
Erica: Really? Fix it? Can you take us back to before Michael Cambias did this horrible thing?
Jack: No, I can't do that, but we can get justice for Bianca.
Erica: Yeah. Look, I understand why you went after Michael Cambias, and I understand why you want to tear him apart. I shut my eyes and I see myself just strangling him with my bare hands, but I'll tell you what -- every time I do that, he knows why he's dying. He knows he's dying because of what he did to my little girl.
Jack: Yeah, but we can't let our hatred for him poison us.
Erica: I know that. I know having these thoughts about Michael is torturing us again, and it's making me feel so angry and so helpless, but that's all I have right now.
Jack: No, that's not true. You have Bianca. And getting her through this is going to be tough enough, so you better save yourself for that.
Erica: Well, of course that's all that matters now. And of course Bianca is the most important thing in all this, and of course I'm going to think only of that.
Jack: Wait a minute. All this is what you came to see me about. Erica, why didn't you just tell me when you were there?
Erica: Because you wouldn't let me.
Jack: You're right. I was angry with you. But why didn't you just explain to me what was going on?
Erica: You know something, I learned something very valuable. I learned that as much as we love each other -- and we do --
Erica: That you can never really trust me, can you?
Jack: You know what, let's not do this now, ok?
Erica: No. The fact is I can't count on you, either. And so probably I will have to get Bianca through this whole thing all by myself.
Jack: Oh, now, you listen to me for just a second. You are not going to have to do this alone, I guarantee you. All right? You know that I will do anything, anything for Bianca.
Erica: I know.
Jack: Don't forget that.
Erica: Oh, Jack, I just want us to be able to put our differences aside -- you know, just for now. You know, for Bianca.
Jack: We will. We will. I'm sorry I didn't listen to you that day. I am sorry, and I -- please forgive me. Whatever I have to do for Bianca, I'll do it.
Erica: She needs you now. You know, she needs you so much. I mean, even though she even kept quiet about all this, she really needs both of us. She needs both of us now more than ever.
Jack: Why -- why did she do that? Why did she wait so long to say anything?
Erica: For us.
Jack: For us? Oh, the wedding.
Erica: She wanted us to have the perfect wedding.
Jack: My God, that means that she's been carrying this load around all by herself for weeks, alone.
Anna: I'm sorry.
Jack: No, it's all right.
Anna: It's Bianca's statement.
Michael: What the hell are you doing here?
Kendall: I could ask you the same thing. I guess your lawyers worked an even bigger miracle for you this time.
Michael: Of course I got out on bail. They know who I am, who my father is.
Kendall: Welcome home, Michael.
Michael: Uh-huh. You know, Erica and her private lawman think they can railroad me. What, did they send you over here to gather some evidence or something?
Kendall: No. I came here all on my own.
Michael: Uh-huh, really? So, what, are you thinking of switching sides?
Kendall: Look, Michael, I know I've made a lot of mistakes, and my biggest one was letting Erica use me. I need you to forgive me.
Michael: Really? So what's in it for me?
Kendall: Well, why don't you just sit down here and relax and let me make you a drink and show you. Scotch on the rocks, right?
Michael: Well, I think I'm beginning to like this new attitude of yours.
Kendall: Mmm, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Michael: Ow! What the hell is this? Did you put this thing here?
Kendall: Well, I guess you're not the only snake who lives here.
Michael: Ow. Is this thing poisonous?
Michael: Oh --
Kendall: That would be a yes.
Michael: My God, what is happening?
Kendall: You're dying, Michael.
Michael: Help me.
Kendall: Bye-bye, Michael. You're dead.
Kendall: Dead. Who's the winner now?
Aidan: What are you doing?
Kendall: Aidan! God, it's not like there's any danger here. Michael's in jail.
Aidan: That doesn't mean you should break into his apartment. Why did you?
Kendall: Why don't you just -- will you just go, ok?
Aidan: No, I am not leaving here until you tell me what you're up to.
Kendall: Aidan, please -- would you please just leave?
Aidan: What is it now, Kendall, huh? More poisonous flowers, or did you short-circuit his toaster?
Kendall: Well, you certainly don't have a very high opinion of me.
Aidan: I have a very high opinion of you. I just know what you're capable of. So, what is it now?
Kendall: I'm not going to tell you.
Aidan: All right, I'm going to find out for myself, then.
Kendall: No, no, listen -- Aidan, listen, whatever Michael has coming to him, he deserves it, ok? Now, will you please, please just go? Aidan, Aidan, wait! Aidan, please.
Aidan: If you're not leaving, Kendall, neither am I.
Kendall: Oh, fine. You know what? I'll go. I'm going. Oh, my God, Aidan. Aidan, look out! Aidan, Aidan, look out!
Anna's voice: I know this is difficult.
Bianca's voice: I've told you everything more than once.
Anna's voice: Maybe you've forgotten something, some detail. What happened after you stopped dancing?
Bianca's voice: That was when I lost my temper. I shouldn't have. Maybe if I hadn't --
Anna's voice: No, no. You had every right. What happened then?
Bianca's voice: He'd been so disgusting, so insulting. I insulted him back. Then he came at me. He was all over me. I tried to fight him. I tried as hard as I could, but he kept coming back at me, pulling me toward him until I was so close to him, and I could feel his breath. And I was fighting all the time, but it didn't do any good. Where was my strength? What happened to me? Why didn't I stop him?
Erica: It's horrible, isn't it?
Anna's voice: Let's go over what you did after he left.
Bianca's voice: I cleaned up. I put everything back in order. Then I changed clothes. I took the ones I was wearing to the park and burned them.
Anna's voice: Are you sure you didn't call anyone?
Bianca's voice: Yes, I'm sure.
Anna's voice: But you said you had cuts and bruises.
Bianca's voice: Yes, on my shoulder.
Anna's voice: And you never thought of going to the hospital to get examined?
Bianca's voice: Yes, I thought of it. I thought I would go later.
Anna's voice: Later?
Bianca's voice: I didn't want to think about it then. I wanted it to all go away. I thought that I would feel differently later, but I never did. Then I thought it was too late. Maybe nobody would believe me. And also, my mother was getting married. She was so happy. I didn't want to make her sad.
Jack: What else have you got?
Anna: Well, that's it.
Jack: Did Bianca see a doctor?
Anna: She's being examined by David today.
Jack: So all you've got is Bianca's statement. Nothing else.
Anna: Well, yeah, that's all we have.
Jack: You know what that means, don't you?
Jack: We got to have better than this because right now we got nothing.
Jack: Anna, why did you wait so long?
Anna: You know why I didn't get Bianca's statement till this morning.
Jack: I'm not talking about Bianca, I'm talking about me. Why did you wait so long to bring me into this? Why didn't you bring me into this before you arrested Cambias?
Erica: This is not Anna's fault. Anna had Michael Cambias arrested the minute she knew what he did. And the reason she didn't bring you into it is because you were off in Atlantic City.
Jack: So this arrest was made solely on Bianca's word.
Anna: When a woman says that she's been raped, I tend to believe her, and I arrest the person that committed the crime.
Erica: Are you saying you don't think that Bianca's word was good enough? Would you rather Anna had let Michael Cambias go free on the streets so he could hurt other women?
Jack: Look, with what we have right now, that is exactly what might happen.
Boyd: God, Myrtle, they're trashing your whole house.
Myrtle: Oh, let them.
Boyd: Let them? Myrtle, what's going on here? I saw that detective asking you questions about Bianca's old room. What's that about?
Lena: What? Has something happen to Bianca? Is that why these people are here?
Myrtle: Listen, there's something that you have to know. Because I know how much you love her.
Lena: Oh, no, no, no.
Boyd: Myrtle, it's ok.
Lena: Please don't let it be. Myrtle, they said a crime scene. What crime?
Boyd: Wait, hold on, hold on. Myrtle, please. Come on, you're scaring Lena and me. Just tell us what happened. Ok, whatever it is, it's going to be ok.
Myrtle: I hope so, but I can't see how it could be.
Boyd: Come on.
Myrtle: The policemen are in there looking for evidence because a terrible crime happened in my house.
Lena: To Bianca?
Myrtle: Yes, Lena. Darling, the crime was rape.
Lena: Oh, no. What? Who? Oh, don't tell me --
Myrtle: Yes. Yes, it was Michael.
Boyd: No. No! Damn him!
Myrtle: Is our Bianca ever going to be the same again?
Nurse: Here we go.
Nurse: I'll need you to take off all your clothes and slip this on.
Nurse: Would you like me to help you?
Bianca: No. I have a friend here. She just stepped out. Here she is.
Nurse: Good, good. Dr. Hayward will be in as soon as you're ready.
Maggie: Thank you.
Maggie: So, I couldn't remember what you wanted, coffee or tea, so I just got both.
Bianca: I don't remember, either. I don't think that I want either one. Could you get rid of them?
Maggie: Yeah, sure.
Bianca: I -- I have to --
Maggie: You have to get into that?
Maggie: Ok. It's ok. Ok? You sure? Ok, I'm going to go get David.
David: All right. Let me explain how we're going to go about this, ok? Now, first I'm going to draw some blood so that we can check for sexually transmitted diseases. After we're done with that, I'm going to have to perform a physical examination of the pelvic area, just to check for tears or bruises. Now, you might experience a little discomfort, but I'm going to finish as quickly as possible, and you can stop me at any time. Ok? All right.
David: But for now I just need you to sit up here, lay back, try to relax, and let me have your arm. Did that hurt? Want to take a break?
Bianca: No, I'm ok.
David: All right, we're almost finished here.
Bianca: You can talk to me now.
Maggie: Oh. Oh, ok. You know, I was thinking. We should go away together, just you and me. What do you think?
Bianca: Yeah, that sounds great.
Maggie: Ok. How about Australia? You know, I heard it was fantastic there.
Bianca: Yeah, and big.
Maggie: Very big. Beautiful beaches. I surf. Did I ever tell you that?
Maggie: Well, then we're going to have to go because then I can prove to you that I'm a champion surfer.
David: That's it. All through here. So how do you feel? Any pain? Discomfort?
Bianca: Uh -- no. I feel fine.
David: Good. All right, look, why don't you put on your clothes. I'll be back in a few minutes and we'll talk.
Bianca: Wait, David. Tell me -- am I ok?
Lena: Bianca? Bianca, it's me. Open up. Bianca, I need to see you. I know what happened. Oh, God. I'm so sorry. Bianca, please just let me see your face. Just for a minute, or just for half a minute, please. Bianca! Just tell me you're ok, ok? Just -- you don't have to open the door. Just let me hear your voice. Bianca! Bianca. Listen, I -- I love you! I love you more than ever now!
Kendall: Oh, my God, Aidan, you killed him.
Aidan: What would you rather me have done, let it kill me?
Kendall: No, it was supposed to kill Michael when he got home from jail.
Aidan: Are you that stupid? You want to spend the rest of your life behind bars?
Kendall: No, I'm not stupid, ok? This would've been a freak accident. There's no way in hell they could possibly trace that snake to me.
Aidan: No? Where did you get it from?
Kendall: I got it from this store that I know far away from here. I paid for it in cash, and I didn't give them my real name.
Aidan: So, how many poisonous snakes have been bought in this part of the country by a young, beautiful woman with curly, brown hair?
Kendall: I don't know. I don't know.
Aidan: You don't think it would take the police a long time to put two and two together and maybe trace it back to you?
Kendall: I don't care, ok? I'll go to jail if it means Bianca never has to see Michael's face again.
Aidan: So how do you know of a store that sells poisonous snakes in the first place?
Kendall: My brother told me about it once.
Aidan: Your brother?
Aidan: Right, Trey. The one that's in prison. You two are quite the pair.
Kendall: Well, we both do spring from the loins of Richard Fields, rapist.
Aidan: So that means you want to rid the world of all rapists?
Kendall: Not all, but at least Michael.
Aidan: You know, no one blames you for bringing Michael Cambias to Pine Valley.
Kendall: I know that.
Aidan: And even Erica agreed with me down at the police station that no one finds you responsible.
Kendall: What did she say?
Aidan: She said that Michael is accountable for his own actions. No one blames you, including Erica.
Kendall: Did she really say that?
Aidan: Yep. Those were her exact words.
Kendall: Well, I don't care. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Michael has to pay for what he did to Bianca, and going to prison -- Aidan, going to prison is completely too good for him. I mean, can't you understand that?
Aidan: Yeah, I do. And everybody else does. I mean, I even took a punch at Michael at the police station myself.
Kendall: You did?
Aidan: Yeah, and I was quite proud of myself until Anna pulled me aside and told me that's definitely not going to help the case against Michael.
Kendall: Yeah, the case against Michael.
Aidan: Look, however we feel, we have to play this smart. I can't punch him to death, and you can't poison him with flowers.
Kendall: I can think of something.
Aidan: We have to let Anna do her job because she's very good at it. She also said that Michael Cambias is counting on us to -- people like us to lose it. That's how he's going to get off. His lawyers will twist it around and make him look like the victim, and he'll walk.
Kendall: No, his lawyers will probably get him off anyway. That's why I'm the one who has to stop him.
Aidan: Have you not listened to a word that I've been saying?
Kendall: Well, then why don't you try saying something that makes sense, please.
Aidan: All right, then. I will. Kendall, either you forget this personal vendetta against Michael Cambias, or I'll become your personal shadow.
Kendall: Go ahead, waste your time and track my every move. Use your damned surveillance equipment. See if I care.
Aidan: Oh, I don't need that. All I need is a pair of handcuffs.
Kendall: For what?
Aidan: To handcuff your wrist to mine until Michael gets put away for good.
Kendall: You don't mean that.
Aidan: Why don't you try me.
Kendall: Oh, ok, and you just always happen to walk around with a pair of handcuffs in your pocket.
Aidan: Not always. Only when you're up to no good. So what's it going to be, Kendall? Going to waste your life on this sicko, or are we to be joined at the wrist?
Kendall: All right. Ok, fine. You're right, ok? Much as I'm fond of you, I can think of a few seconds in the day when I'd rather not be trapped beside you.
Aidan: Well, that's too bad because I thought being trapped with you 24/7 would have been an unending delight.
Kendall: Oh, yeah? You would've really done it, wouldn't you?
Aidan: I'm fond of you, too.
Kendall: Anyway, you're right. And when you're right, you're right.
Aidan: Are you sure, or is this just a snow job?
Kendall: Oh, come on. This thing that I planned, it would've never really worked anyway. It was stupid and it was dangerous, and I'm sorry. Sorry, Aidan. I'm really sorry. God, I don't know what I would've done if that snake actually bit you.
Aidan: There's only one thing you could've done, and that's suck the poison out of my punctured wound and hoped that we'd have both survived.
Kendall: Ok. I would have. I mean, you're the only real friend that I have.
Aidan: Yeah, right back at you, kid.
Kendall: Do you really think that Anna and Jack will be able to make those charges against Michael stick?
Aidan: Well, it's our best shot.
Kendall: Ok. No more snakes, no more stupid tricks, no more funny games. I won't do anything to jeopardize the legal state against Michael.
Jack: I know what it takes to get a conviction in a rape case, and we do not have it.
Erica: Jack, you just can't mean that.
Jack: You read the report. Bianca -- she cleaned up the crime scene, she burned her clothes. We have no rape kit and no photographs taken after the rape at the scene of the crime.
Anna: I sent forensics to Myrtle's as soon as I had Michael in custody.
Jack: Anna, you and I both know so much time has passed. They're not going to find a damned thing.
Erica: Are you saying that there's a chance that Michael Cambias might actually go free?
Jack: If all we have is Bianca's word -- yes, that's a very great possibility.
Anna: Well, Jack, we have to think of something. We can't just drop the charges because that's going to compromise any case you bring against him later.
Erica: Oh, my God. This just can't be real.
Jack: I have no intention of dropping the charges.
Jack: I'm going to build a solid case against Michael Cambias.
Erica: Jack, what do you think Bianca will say when she finds out that there is an actual chance that the man who did this to her might go away free? He might get away with this!
Jack: Erica, you're going to have to trust me. I'm going to do everything in my power. But right now what we have to do is we have to go talk to Bianca.
David: Send these to the lab right away. Tell them to put a rush on it.
Bianca: So tell me -- am I ok?
David: Bianca, I don't want you to worry, ok? Whatever those tests show, you and I are going to go over them together.
David: How the hell am I going to tell her this?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Erica: Alexander, is that you?
Alexander: Erica Kane? What do you want?
Kendall: Just because you're Jackson's daughter doesn't mean you're family, ok?
Jack: Would you please let me help you?
Michael: What is it that you can do to me?
Juan Pablo: Make you regret that you were ever born.
