Nurse: That's when I decided to change my name.
Alexander: To Zaza?
Zaza: No, Johnson. My last name was Wnrsky. It's got no vowels. No one knew what to call me.
Alexander: I'm sure they managed.
Ryan: You're definitely ready to be sprung.
Alexander: Come back later, Zaza. You think so?
Ryan: I checked with the doctor. Tomorrow or the next day, you're a free man.
Alexander: High bloody time.
Ryan: Here, I couldn't resist.
Alexander: "I went to Vegas and all I got was a myocardial infarction." I shall wear it proudly.
Ryan: I bet you will.
Alexander: And for you.
Ryan: A present? What a surprise.
Alexander: It's a surprise, yes, but not for you. It's a message for my son, and I want you to get it to him. By all means, read it.
Ryan: You want me to send this to him? Are you sure?
Alexander: As sure as anything I've been since the cursed day he was born.
Michael: That's exactly what I want. Yeah, she'll never know what hit her. It's beautiful. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, let me know when it's done. Yeah, sure.
Guard: Give me that.
Michael: I do have one phone call, Chief.
Guard: Yeah, one, and on the pay phone. How did you get this?
Michael: Well, you know, I have friends.
Juan Pablo: I doubt that.
Michael: Who are you?
Juan Pablo: The last person you want to see on earth.
Michael: Oh, yeah? Why? What is it that you can do to me?
Juan Pablo: Make you regret that you were ever born.
Simone: Juan Pablo is a gift from God.
Mia: He is. We are so lucky he's cutting Michael off at the knees.
Simone: Of course, Greenlee’s even luckier.
Greenlee: So Juan Pablo is taking care of Michael, and the second part of our good news is?
Mia: Well, since round four of Fusion's Sexiest Man Contest has really caught fire and we can't keep up with the web traffic, let alone all the phone calls.
Simone: Yes, and the publicity is translating into sales.
Greenlee: Well, revenue has been steadily building since the beginning of the contest.
Mia: And we still have two weeks left before we crown America’s sexiest man.
Simone: Only two weeks until I meet him? I love my job.
Greenlee: Still, a bump in sales couldn't cover what we owe the IRS We needed a miracle.
Mia: And he found us, that's for sure. What should we do for him? Should we throw a party?
Simone: Oh, I like parties.
Kendall: Yeah, let's hold off on all the offerings and tributes until we know that Michael’s dead.
Greenlee: Dead? Juan Pablo is just paying back the $500,000 that Michael loaned us.
Kendall: No, figuratively speaking. Michael's like the dude in the hockey mask that keeps trying to kill women. You finally think he's dead until he crawls out of the water just to kill again.
Mia: Juan Pablo can handle him.
Simone: Yeah, he can handle anything.
Mia: And anyone.
Simone: Yeah, I would like it, wouldn't you?
Mia: Shh, he's Greenlee’s now.
Greenlee: Have you talked to Bianca? Is she ok?
Kendall: Look, just because you're Jackson’s daughter doesn't mean you're family, ok? Bianca would tell you to stuff your pity.
Greenlee: It's not pity.
Kendall: Shut up, ok, or I swear to God I'll drop you right here.
Lena: The guard downstairs said you were out, but I had to wait. Tell me it's a mistake, that it's not true. Oh, God. Oh, Bianca.
Erica: Listen, this is just not a good time to see Bianca, Lena.
Lena: I -- I have to. She needs me.
Erica: She's just not ready. Sorry.
Jack: Lena, Erica is right. This may take a while.
Lena: I know. I want what's best for Bianca. Of course, I do.
Greenlee: Drop me? Like walk out on the business, or are you threatening to deck me?
Kendall: C, all of the above.
Greenlee: Nice. Very classy.
Kendall: You know what, don't go all holier-than-thou on me. You're a wedding wrecker.
Greenlee: You and Erica knew that Jack was my father.
Kendall: Not for very long.
Greenlee: Whatever. You kept it a secret, so don't start playing good girl or get all outraged at me.
Kendall: You know what, if you keep it up, I swear to God I will take that silver spoon out of your mouth and hit you over the head with it.
Mia: Uh -- is everything ok?
Kendall and Greenlee: Great!
Kendall: Now, what was your tragedy again? Oh, right, right. That's right. The guy that you thought -- no, make that the loser that you thought was your father isn’t. You found out he's not. He's Jackson Montgomery, a father any girl would dream of having. Yeah, I'm sorry. I feel really sorry for you, Greenlee.
Simone: Are you guys sure everything is copacetic?
Kendall and Greenlee: Yes!
Greenlee: You lost our personal bet to me. Now you want to bet that you have more family stress than I do?
Lena: Bianca, I'm so --
Bianca: I can’t.
David: Bianca needs rest.
Maggie: She really needs to lay down.
David: Excuse us.
Jack: Lena, that's all for now.
Lena: I can't leave her.
Jack: You can't stay here. I'm sorry.
Lena: Well, look, there must be something I can do. We love each other. That must mean something.
Jack: Yes, of course it does, but right now your presence might make what happened to Bianca even harder for her to handle.
Lena: It shouldn't. Not unless -- not unless she blames me.
Jack: No, no, no. No, she has not indicated that she blames you in any way.
Lena: I worked for Michael. I was involved with him. If she's making a connection --
Jack: Lena, listen to me. Bianca has been traumatized. She's confused. You're just going to have to wait this out.
Lena: She's the purest person I’ve ever known, and what he did can't change that, and I need to tell her that.
Jack: I know how much you care for her, but we have to let Bianca choose who she has around her right now.
Lena: Ok, but that pig -- you can put him away, yes?
Jack: I'll make sure that Michael Cambias never harms another woman again.
Michael: So, Zorro, you're going to avenge the señoritas of Pine Valley, are you? Good luck.
Juan Pablo: You are not what I expected.
Michael: Am I even better-looking than they said I was?
Juan Pablo: I've never seen a rapist alive.
Michael: Is that right? Well, guess what -- you still haven’t.
Juan Pablo: An animal in a village near my ranch tried to do what you did.
Juan Pablo: He was killed very quickly.
Michael: Well, I'm sure he's much happier being spared a life in a land where animal entrails are considered fine dining.
Juan Pablo: You have it far too easy here.
Michael: You know what, Zorro, this interview is over. Get lost.
Juan Pablo: I must be sure you understand that you are never to go close to the women of Fusion ever again.
Michael: Ah, señoritas calientes, oh? Well, sorry, Don Juevos, but the women of Fusion are in my pocket now and anyplace else I’d like to put them. I paid $500,000 for that pleasure.
Juan Pablo: Your business with them is over.
Michael: Well, this ought to be interesting. "Original Agreement." Well, this appears to be legitimate. Did the girls print it up themselves?
Juan Pablo: I have settled the loan. The money has been repaid. You will not bother them again.
Michael: You know, when Zorro took off his mask, he was a wimpy loser. You remember that? Well, don't look now, Don Diego, but your mask is around your ankles. I have fused with Fusion for good.
Michael: So you see, Speedy Gonzales, you and your Fusion babes are playing in a league that doesn't even come close to mine.
Juan Pablo: My attorneys will look into this.
Michael: Good. Let them convince you that you've just been outplayed.
Juan Pablo: Sinverguenza.
Michael: I'm sorry, what does that mean? Hmm? "Victor"? "Winner and champion"?
Juan Pablo: It means "without shame."
Michael: What would I have to be ashamed about, huh? That I’m smarter, stronger than everybody else?
Juan Pablo: Strong enough to overpower a woman? That is nothing to brag about.
Michael: Listen up, Juevos rancheros. Women offer themselves to me. I don't have to pay for sex, and thank God I've never shared my bed with one of your tortilla-twirling sisters.
Juan Pablo: You have made very serious mistakes.
Guard: Don't let me interrupt.
Michael: Get this filth off of me.
Guard: What's that, rapist?
Juan Pablo: We're not finished, Señor Cambias.
Michael: Wrong again, Cisco. Oh, and do me a favor -- tell my girlfriends that I'm fantasizing about them and all the fun we're going to have.
Greenlee: You know what? This is ridiculous. I'm not up for a pity duel, so why don't we just call a truce, ok? You and I have both been lied to, had parents who kept secrets from us, maybe never wanted us at all. So what?
Kendall: "So what"?
Greenlee: It doesn't seem as horrific as what your sister recently survived.
Kendall: Ok. Ok, you're right. I'm sorry. I don't know why I went off on you like that.
Greenlee: You're still mad at me for what happened at the wedding, and I guess I don't blame you, but don't you think we have to work this out?
Kendall: Yeah, I guess we do.
Greenlee: Ok. Thank you.
Mia: Oh, my God.
Mia: Oh! Oh, my God, find me a chair.
Simone: What happened?
Mia: I need a chair.
Greenlee: Don't tell me it's bad news.
Mia: Oh, no.
Greenlee: It's an order.
Mia: It's the big mama of all orders!
Simone: Oh, my gosh, the biggest to date.
Mia: Yeah, and look who placed the order.
Kendall: Wait, who is it? What?
All: Baylor & Garland!
Kendall: That's good.
Mia: Good? Good? It's a miracle! Ah! And they said that they've been flooded with requests for our products.
Simone: Thanks to the sexiest man competition, we are now in a class with the top five cosmetic firms in the country.
Greenlee: Well, I don't know about that, but one thing's for sure -- Fusion's here to stay.
Maggie: You know, I'll talk to Lena if you want to be with Erica and Bianca.
Jack: Ok. Lena, just -- just give this some time, ok? Thanks.
Lena: I love her. I should be there comforting her.
Maggie: She's not ready.
Lena: She needs to know that what's happened hasn't changed my feelings, that I still love her. She needs to hear that.
Maggie: Why don't we go get some air, ok?
Erica: Well, she's lying down, but I doubt very much that she'll rest. David, please tell me. Tell me the results of the exam. Did you find evidence of the rape?
David: There was evidence of penetration. I've concluded that it was heterosexual.
Jack: Any proof that whatever sexual contact she had was not consensual and that it was with Michael Cambias?
David: Unfortunately, we just have her word for that.
Jack: You can't give me anything that I can use in court?
David: At this time, there really isn't anything concrete. After the test results come in, maybe then we'll talk.
Erica: So then we're here, hoping that she contracts a disease from him so we can use that as ammunition in court? She's going to be all right, isn't she, David? I mean, physically?
David: I put a rush on the blood. After I've examined the reports, I'll tell you what I can. The rest is up to Bianca.
Erica: Well, Michael has to pay for this. Michael Cambias has got to pay.
Jack: Oh, he will, believe me. David, have you been in touch with Greenlee?
Jack: I found her in Atlantic City and brought her back here.
David: Well, that's the least you could've done, don't you think?
Jack: She's probably at home or at her office if you do want to see her.
David: Erica, if you or Bianca needs anything, call me on my cell, all right? I'll be right here.
Erica: Thank you. Thanks, David.
Jack: I better go check on Bianca.
Jack: I should have recognized that Michael Cambias was a threat to you. We had protection in place for all his most obvious targets, but I just never, never thought he'd come after you, and I know it's too little, too late, but would you please let me help you?
Erica: Yes, room 86, please. Alexander, is that you? It's Erica Kane.
Alexander: Erica Kane? How did you find me? And more importantly, what do you want?
Erica: Now, Alexander, I need to speak to you on a very serious subject concerning your son, Michael, and my daughter Bianca.
Alexander: My son and your daughter? What's going on?
Alexander: Are you sure? I can't express my disgust. You have my deepest sympathies and apologies. Of course not. The only thing I’d do for Michael is to help him get to hell faster than he's managing on his own.
Ryan: Alex? Hey, hey, man, you all right? Alex? Hey, hey, hey, hey! Listen, I think Cambias is having another heart attack. Go get help! Move it!
[Monitor beeps rapidly]
Jack: I can't even imagine how you must feel right now.
Bianca: I can't help you.
Jack: Bianca, what Michael Cambias did to you was criminal and sick, and we are going to make sure that you are safe from him from now on.
Bianca: Safe? I don't feel safe.
Jack: Well, you will when Cambias is in prison where he belongs.
Bianca: He was supposed to be there before.
Jack: This time we'll keep him there. Sweetheart, I -- I hate to take you back to that horrible night, but I'd like --
Bianca: Uncle Jack, I told Anna everything that he did. All of it.
Jack: I read your statement. Honey, you were very, very brave.
Bianca: No, I wasn't. I prayed to die, but no one was listening.
Jack: Well, I'm certainly glad nobody was listening. Bianca, I -- what I'm looking for is something that maybe you missed before, some detail that I can use to convince a jury.
Bianca: Michael raped me.
Jack: I know that, but a jury needs to see evidence.
Bianca: Well, I had a physical examination. David is running tests right now.
Jack: I know. Let me ask you this. When you burned your clothes, did you burn everything?
Bianca: I had to get rid of it all.
Jack: Did Cambias maybe leave something behind at Myrtle’s?
Bianca: Didn't the police search Myrtle’s?
Jack: Yes, yes, but I'm hoping that maybe you might think of something that they would've missed, something that only you would know about.
Bianca: Like what?
Jack: Like did he mix himself a drink? Did he help himself to food?
Bianca: He had a glass of lemonade. He threw the glass against the fireplace when I made him mad.
Jack: Ok, ok. That's the kind of thinking I'm looking for. That proves there was an argument, that you had a fight --
Bianca: I threw out everything after he left. I cleaned it all up. I took the shards, and I threw them in the trash. I had to erase everything. I've never been so ashamed in my life. I've never felt so ugly and so dirty.
Jack: Sweetheart, listen to me. You did nothing wrong. You have nothing to be ashamed of -- nothing. Bianca, would you like me to -- to hold you for a while?
David: I'm so happy to see you back. How you doing?
Greenlee: I'm fantastic.
Greenlee: Oh -- yeah.
David: You're limping?
Greenlee: No, I just -- you know, I twisted my ankle, but who cares? Business-wise, life has never been better.
David: Well, that's great. I'm happy to see things are going so well.
Greenlee: "Well" doesn't even begin to cover it. The Sexiest Man In America Contest has pushed us to a whole new level.
Greenlee: I mean, sure, we've had some glitches and we've made some mistakes, but Fusion is developing into a force in this industry. It's beyond my wildest expectations. You know, we're building steadily, and with the economy the way it is and people struggling and new companies folding left and right, I mean, we're golden. Not even a year ago, we were, like, cooking up lip color in Kendall’s kitchen, and now we're scrambling to cover an order from Baylor & Garland.
David: Baylor & Garland? Whoo! Well, I'm impressed.
Greenlee: Yeah, and they don't even want samples. They want our entire product line.
David: That's wonderful. No wonder you're so happy.
Greenlee: We have to cover a third shift at the factory just to make the order.
David: You're going to be able to do it?
Greenlee: I'll run the machines myself if I have to. I made this company. It's my passion, David. It's my life.
Erica: It seems so long ago. She was so happy and so hopeful. God. It feels so right. Doesn't it?
Jack: If I had just known sooner, if you had just told me about what happened to Bianca earlier, I might have been able to do something.
Erica: Jack, have you forgotten? I did come to you and I did try to tell you I was so concerned about Bianca and that she was so upset.
Erica: But you immediately accused me of using her to try to get closer to you.
Jack: Yeah, I'm -- please, just don't throw that up in my face again, ok? Please?
Erica: I am not throwing it up in your face, but you just brought this up and now you're acting as if it's my fault.
Jack: No, I'm not saying it's your fault. Look, I'm not trying to place blame anywhere here. Can we just forget about this, please?
Erica: I would love to. Did you find anything out from her just now? Something that can be used as evidence against Michael Cambias?
Ryan: So it wasn't another heart attack?
Zaza: No. Mr. Cambias, you have to work at staying calm unless you want a stroke. His pressure spiked.
Alexander: I think the danger has passed.
Zaza: For now.
Alexander: Why don't you pass on out that door?
Zaza: Keep him off the phone. If his pressure doesn't stay down, we'll have to increase his meds.
Ryan: Feeling better?
Ryan: Erica Kane always have this effect on you?
Alexander: You know her?
Ryan: I mean, doesn't everybody know her by reputation?
Alexander: She informed me that my son has been arrested.
Alexander: For raping her daughter.
Ryan: What? Kendall?
Alexander: No, her youngest. Bianca.
Ryan: Oh, my God. That bastard.
Alexander: Notwithstanding the fact that I fathered him, I agree with you.
Alexander: Why so secretive, Ryan?
Alexander: You obviously know Miss Kane. You know far more about her than you're letting on. Why is that?
Lena: I knew it wasn't true. You weren't a couple, you and Bianca. You were lying.
Maggie: Bianca jumped in. I just followed along.
Lena: Maggie, why didn't you come to me and tell me the truth?
Maggie: Because it's not what Bianca wanted.
Lena: She needs me. I love her more -- more than she knows, I guess.
Maggie: There's nothing you could have done.
Lena: You don't know that.
Maggie: I do. Look, at first Bianca was in complete denial. She couldn't accept what had happened, and then a few of us caught on, and she was all about hushing it up. She didn't want anyone to know that she had been raped.
Lena: Ok, but now it's out. Everybody knows. The police know. I belong with her.
Maggie: Lena, I know it's hard, but you have to wait.
Lena: I don't agree.
Maggie: I'm sorry. It's not your call.
Lena: Look, you think that whatever Bianca wants is what's best for her. You said yourself she's traumatized. She doesn't know what she needs.
Maggie: I have been with her, and I have seen what she's been going through, believe me.
Lena: No, look, she belongs with me, ok? Maybe you're just being overprotective because -- because you're jealous of our relationship.
Maggie: No. No, I'm not.
Lena: Well, she thought she was in love with you once when your sister died.
Maggie: None of that stuff factors in, I promise you. She just can't be around people right now. It's as simple as that.
Lena: What does it take to get through to you? I'm not "people," I'm her lover. I want to be her partner for the rest of my life.
Maggie: Well, then, if you really love her, then you have to leave her alone. Bianca's not ready right now.
Lena: Because I'm responsible. Because I slept with the man who raped her.
Maggie: I really don't think that's what she's thinking.
Lena: I was with Michael to save my job, to help my mother. I wish I’d handled it differently. I hate myself now and so does she. She does, doesn't she? She hates me.
Maggie: No. No, no, she never said anything like that. She just didn't want you to find out that she was raped.
Lena: She feels it's my fault.
Maggie: You know, you don't know how she feels or what she feels. None of us do. That's why we have to respect how she wants to deal with this.
Lena: Oh, I do respect it.
Maggie: You want to jump in and you want to save the day, and I understand because I want to do the same exact thing, but I can’t.
Lena: You can't?
Maggie: No, you can't, I can't, no one can. We have to let her heal at her own pace.
Lena: I just want to hold her and tell her she's going to be ok.
Maggie: And let her know that you will always be there for her.
Lena: Yes. Yes, Maggie, I will be.
Maggie: Look, there's a very good chance that the two of you might spend the rest of your lives together, have a commitment ceremony, the whole package -- when she's ready for a relationship again.
Lena: I could kill Michael.
Maggie: Yeah, get in line. I am always going to be a part of Bianca’s life. So as soon as she gives me the signal, I will be the first one to come and tell you the news. I'll even stand up for the two of you at the wedding. Hey, I’ll even drive you to Vermont.
Lena: You'd do that?
Maggie: On my honor, but until she gives me that signal, you have to chill out. You have to stay away from her, no matter how hard it is, ok? Do you promise?
Lena: Yes. I just want what's best for her. I want her to get better.
David: I'm very proud of you, Greenlee, and I will forever be grateful to Leo for bringing you into our dysfunctional family.
Greenlee: Give my love to Anna.
David: I will.
Greenlee: Take care.
David: You, too.
Greenlee: Hi. Hey, look who's here.
Simone: Oh, hey!
Mia: What happened?
Simone: Were you able to pay off our loan?
Juan Pablo: Yes. The funds were transferred.
Mia: Oh, great.
Mia: Then Michael --
Simone: He's out of our lives.
Mia: We don't ever have to speak his name again.
Greenlee: Please, God.
Juan Pablo: That remains to be seen.
Greenlee: What do you mean?
Simone: Well, you're talking about because of the trial. I mean, he's still around, right?
Mia: Yeah, but if he goes to prison, then everything's ok.
Juan Pablo: I want to see the loan agreement.
Simone: Ok, that's in my documents. I'll get that.
Greenlee: What are you looking for?
Juan Pablo: Cambias seemed very confident he'll be cleared.
Greenlee: So you think he's up to something?
Juan Pablo: I want to make sure you are free of him, that's all.
Simone: Here it is.
Juan Pablo: You read the small print?
Mia: You never mentioned any small print.
Simone: I read every word.
Juan Pablo: This, too?
Mia and Simone: What?
Simone: Oh, that -- that's just like a boilerplate, you know, standard legalize.
Greenlee: She's right, isn't she?
Juan Pablo: You didn't zoom in on it?
Mia: No, she didn't.
Simone: Um -- I'm getting that sick feeling, you know, like when you're waiting for that stick to turn either pink or blue?
Jack: Erica, to convict Cambias, we need evidence.
Erica: Well, Bianca is a lesbian. She would never have consensual sex with a man.
Jack: Well, her girlfriend did.
Erica: Lena's past with Michael Cambias is irrelevant.
Jack: Is it?
Erica: Yes. Bianca was raped.
Jack: I know that, but any good defense attorney -- and you know Cambias is going to have the best -- is going to make mincemeat of her on that witness stand. He's going to say, "Well, maybe, Ms. Montgomery, you wanted to experience what your girlfriend Lena had experienced with Michael Cambias."
Erica: Oh, that's obscene.
Jack: I know it is, but that's what we're up against. Now, David himself just said there's no proof whatsoever that she had sex with Michael Cambias, whether by choice or by force.
Guard: Mail call.
Michael: What is it?
Guard: Somebody got a fax from his daddy.
Michael: Hand it over.
Guard: Not so fast. You and the old man could be planning a jailbreak.
Michael: Like he'd be letting me know in a fax. Give it to me.
Guard: Could be in code. I got to check.
Michael: Hey, that's private. Give me the paper.
Guard: You and the old man are real tight, huh, Cambias?
Michael: Just give me -- just give me the paper.
Guard: With pleasure.
Alexander: Out with it, or I’ll make those damn machines bleep and whistle again.
Ryan: Uh -- I -- I lived in Pine Valley at one time.
Alexander: Why did you leave?
Ryan: It seemed like the right thing to do at the time, but I might go back.
Alexander: How does tomorrow suit you? Or the day after?
Ryan: What's my hurry?
Alexander: Find my son. Make sure he knows who you are, and then deal with him.
Ryan: What, you want me to punish him?
Alexander: The idea doesn't appeal to you?
Ryan: It might be satisfying, and so would seeing some people that I thought I’d forgotten.
Kendall: Ok, you guys, sorry I'm a little slow today, but what the hell are you looking for?
Juan Pablo: You didn't read any of this?
Simone: I -- I didn't know that it was there.
Juan Pablo: I mean, it was you who accepted the loan, the wire of funds, and then forwarded the same amount to the IRS?
Simone: Yes, but any one of us would have done the same thing.
Mia: What is it?
Greenlee: What? You're making me nervous.
Juan Pablo: I wish you had told your accountant.
Simone: Well, why would I? I thought that Liza was the one that was covering the debt for us.
Greenlee: Yeah, Liza’s the one with the deep pockets.
Mia: Yeah, that's why she didn't look for any loopholes or fine print.
Simone: Right. I mean, Liza’s worth gazillions.
Juan Pablo: Too bad Liza didn't draft this agreement.
Mia: Oh, God.
Greenlee: No, no, don't worry. Whatever it is, we can get out of it. Can't we?
Simone: What did I do?
Juan Pablo: You handed Michael Cambias your company. Now he owns Fusion.
Erica: Who are they going to believe, Bianca or Michael?
Jack: Oh, it's not that simple, Erica.
Erica: Why not? First of all, Bianca was so compelling when she testified, she was clearly telling the truth, and you're going to get character witnesses, and you are going to show Michael Cambias for the -- for the creepy, woman-hating thug that he is.
Jack: Well, even if we get his true colors out there, I'm going to need more than that to convict.
Erica: You're going to win, Jack. I know you will.
Jack: Then you better pray for a miracle in the meantime. I mean, I'll do all I can, but without that miracle, I'm just afraid that judge is going to -- I'm afraid that that judge is going to laugh me out of court and set Cambias free again.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greenlee: You actually convinced me to give this father-daughter thing a try.
Jack: I did?
Mia: It's my turn to take a crack at you.
Maria: Is there any other time I could take this test?
Joe: Might be as long as a year.
Palmer: What are you proposing?
Kendall: That Michael be terminated.
