Michael: We've got work to do, ladies. We've got a company to run. Let's go.
Simone: You know what? I'm going to run it straight up your bony little --
Mia: Oh, no, Simone, donít. No.
Michael: Chop, chop.
Simone: Yeah, you know what? I got some voting numbers to check.
Michael: Oh, yes. The Sexiest Man Contest. By the way, I'm going to need somebody to bring me up to speed on the finalists, if there's any volunteers.
Greenlee: Go online.
Michael: Hold it! You ladies need to know that Iím a hands-on type of boss. So, there's going to be some changes around here. First, each and every one of you is expected to be at her desk by 9:00, no later. Second, attire is expected to be professional, not tarty. That means no more casual Fridays, no sloppy clothes, and no sloppy work. This company needs a lot of fixing if it's going to compete in the business world. So, muffin, why don't you show me your business model. You know, the one made out of popsicle sticks.
Mia: That does it. That does it! I quit! I'm out of here!
Greenlee: No. You can't quit. None of us are going to quit, ok? We can't. We'll do this together, remember?
Simone: Yeah, ok, so let's walk out of here together.
Mia: Yeah, we walk out of here and Michael owns 51% of nothing.
Michael: Be my guest. I can have some properly attired behinds in your chairs by breakfast.
Greenlee: We're staying. You're stuck with us. So instead of acting like the preening, prancing jerk that you are, why don't you shut the hell up and let us run our company.
Bianca's voice: He held me down, and I said No. I screamed it. "No, no, no!"
Wayne's voice: So you hated him, your lover hated him, your mother, your sister --
Jackís voice: Objection, your honor. This is appalling.
Wayne's voice: Your mother told you to get up here and lie.
Jack's voice: Objection!
Erica's voice: You're so afraid of me that you attacked a child? You raped my little girl! Your raped my little -- you raped my --
Tad: Is this what they call returning to the scene of the crime?
Jack: Yeah, what happened here today was a crime.
Kendall: Don't you think that I want to go to Erica and Bianca and beg for their forgiveness, give Bianca a hug and tell her how sorry I am?
Aidan: So what's stopping you?
Kendall: Well, I don't know how you do things in England, but here in the new world, if I show them my face, they'll spit on me.
Aidan: So spit at them back.
Kendall: Aidan --
Aidan: No, I mean it. Let Erica and Bianca spit themselves dry.
Kendall: And then what?
Aidan: I don't know, go and get them a glass of water and let them spit some more.
Kendall: Is this your quaint way of telling me that I should go talk to them?
Aidan: You have to.
Kendall: You're crazy.
Aidan: Yeah, probably. But just maybe Iím right.
Bianca: Pregnant? It can't be. Are you sure?
David: Yes. The tests were conclusive, both the physical exam and the blood work.
Bianca: What do I do?
David: You do have some time to decide. You're about six weeks along, give or take.
Bianca: I don't know what to do.
David: Right now, you don't have to do anything. You've been through hell, Bianca. Why don't you give yourself some time to adjust, to heal, all right?
Bianca: Time? I'm going to have a baby.
David: Bianca, you don't have to rush into anything. Give yourself the time. Think this through. Now, I realize that this is a lot for you to absorb all at once, and I have the name of a wonderful counselor at the clinic.
David: All right. Well, then Iím certain that your mother could be very helpful --
Bianca: No, no, David, not my mother. I can't tell her this.
David: But Erica can help you.
Bianca: No, I canít. I won't do that, and neither can you. You need to promise me, David. You need to swear to me that you're not going to tell her this.
David: Ok, Bianca, it's all right. It's all right. I won't tell Erica anything, ok? It's just that your mother loves you with all her heart. You know that, and who better than Erica to help you with the decisions you're going to be faced with right now?
Bianca: Because she was raped? Because she got pregnant? No way. David, I can't -- I can't do this to her. This would kill her.
David: No, Bianca.
David: You're her life. She would find the strength, believe me.
Bianca: Well, this happened to me, and I'll decide what to do next. But, David, you do need to promise me that you're not going to tell her about this.
David: You have doctor-patient confidentiality. Without your consent, nothing goes beyond these walls.
Bianca: Thank you. I should go.
David: Would you like me to drive you home?
Bianca: No. That's all right. Thank you. I'll manage.
David: Bianca? Call me, day or night. I really want to help in whatever way that you'll let me.
Aidan: You've decided that it's in your genes to make a bad choice, to do the wrong thing. Your father's a rapist, so is your ex-boyfriend, and it's all your fault, you're an eternal bad seed.
Kendall: Aidan, I thought you were my friend.
Aidan: I am your friend. I've just been listening to this garbage come out of your mouth for weeks. Did you think I didn't pay any attention?
Kendall: Yeah, but it's true. When I met Michael, I really thought that he loved me and he would heal me. I thought he would change my life. But instead, all he did was tear Biancaís apart.
Aidan: Bianca will survive this.
Kendall: Yeah, but she'll hate me.
Aidan: Oh, Kendall --
Kendall: And she should. She should.
Aidan: So what are you going to do? Run? Where's your nerve gone, Kendall?
Kendall: It's gone.
Aidan: You handled a snake that can kill a person with one bite, and you're afraid of your mother and your sister?
Kendall: No, I'm afraid that they'll tell me I'm not good enough to be a part of the only family that I've ever wanted, Aidan. I'm afraid that --
Aidan: That Bianca will curse you? Bianca will curse you for a while. Look, I know how important Bianca and Erica are to you. This is your chance to really help them.
Kendall: By what, leaving town?
Aidan: No, by letting them yell, by letting them curse, and by letting them vent their anger.
Kendall: I Canít. If they throw me out for good, Aidan, it'll kill me.
Aidan: You will take that chance because you love them. Let them curse and let them scream, let them yell. Outrage is more satisfying than chocolate.
Kendall: You think so?
Aidan: I think that they will thank you. There's only one way that we can find out.
Kendall: I really wish I was as sure of this as you were.
Aidan: If you want, Iíll go with you.
Kendall: You would do that?
Aidan: Yeah. You might need someone to peel you off the ceiling or scrape you off the floor.
Kendall: Why are you so good to me?
Aidan: I don't know.
Kendall: Ok, well, let's just go. Let's do this before I lose my nerve or wimp out. Let's go.
Tad: What did happen today here, Jack?
Jack: Bianca was raped for a second time today, Tad, by the law I serve.
Tad: Enough to make you lose faith, isn't it?
Jack: I have to believe in the law, Tad, to do what I do. I mean, if I lose faith in our system of justice, then what is there, huh?
Tad: Hopefully a vengeful God and a spit with Michaelís name on it.
Jack: That's not enough. It's not enough for me. I told Bianca that everything would be fine. I gave her my word that the law would protect her, and I let her down.
Tad: No, you didn't. The system let her down, not you, Jackson.
Jack: So did i. So did I, with my idealism and my misplaced faith. Bianca deserved a good, full, safe life, don't you think, Tad? That was ripped right from her.
Tad: By Michael Cambias, not you.
Jack: So what am I supposed to tell Bianca, then, huh?
Tad: That you love her. That you'll be with her every step of the way. Jackson, you did everything you could.
Jack: Did I? Huh? I knew Cambias was a dangerous man, a sick man. I had protection in place for her mother, her sister, her girlfriend, everybody but Bianca. I couldn't stop him from going free on bail. I mean, what good is what I do, Tad, if I can't protect the people I care about the most? And I watched that son of a bitch walk out of this courtroom with a smile on his face!
Tad: You heard the judge. You can -- you can try the case all over.
Jack: Yeah, if I can find more evidence. You think that's going to help Bianca sleep tonight or Erica or any other woman in this town, for that matter?
Tad: I'm sorry, Jack.
Jack: So am I. When people start believing that the law won't bring them justice, then they start taking the law into their own hands.
Tad: If you want to take a shot at Michael Cambias, you're going to have to wait in line.
Jack: I'll tell you something, Tad, I've never felt this way before in my entire life, but if I came across somebody standing over his dead body with a smoking gun in their hand, I would not honor my oath. I would not see that as a crime.
Tad: Yes, you would. You would because it's what you do, it's who you are, and right now you've got to hang on to that.
Jack: So, what the hell are you doing here, anyway?
Tad: Forget about it.
Jack: No. What?
Tad: No, just a stupid investigation I'm working on. I'm going to take off. Don't do anything I wouldn't do, ok?
Jack: And what wouldn't you do, Tad, if you were me?
Tad: Just remember one thing -- in all of this, there's only one villain, one, and his name is Michael Cambias.
Michael: Take a deep breath, Greenlee, and step off. Ladies.
Greenlee: I'm not done.
Michael: Well, you touch me again like that, and Iím going to have to talk about sexual harassment, which, by the way, I won't tolerate in my company.
Greenlee: I don't care how much money you have in Fusion or how much stock you own. This is our company, our dream, and I'm not going to let you destroy it.
Mia: Come on, Greenlee, let's just deal with this situation.
Greenlee: Let go of me.
Michael: Yeah, listen to your friend and get the right attitude.
Greenlee: What's that, lie back and take it? Let you rape us, too? You can forget that. We're going to fight you with everything we have, you little --
Michael: I would watch your mouth.
Greenlee: Why? You going to rape me to prove what a big man you are?
Michael: Listen to me --
Mia: Let go of her! Let go of her!
Carlos: Get off her!
Simone: Oh, my God! Carlos!
Carlos: Don't touch her!
Michael: Get off of me, Pancho.
Carlos: Oh, "Pancho"?
Greenlee: Stop it!
Simone: No, no, no!
Michael: I'm calling the cops.
Carlos: Oh, you're calling the cops, huh?
Michael: What are you going to do about it?
Carlos: Oh, what am I going to do about it, huh? What are you going to do about it?
Simone: It's not worth it!
Carlos: I'm the punk?
Simone: Don't do it!
Juan Pablo: Stop it! No, no, no!
Carlos: I'll kill you! I'll kill you!
Simone: Carlos, are you ok?
Michael: I'm fine, too, just in case anybody was wondering.
Mia: We weren't.
Carlos: Why don't we go another round?
Juan Pablo: Stop it.
Michael: Maybe next time, monkey. Thank God you came along to stop this insanity, huh?
Juan Pablo: Get the hell out of here before I help him finish what he started, ok?
[Car door closes]
Anna: What a bloody horrible day.
David: Yeah, no kidding. Here, let me take those. Can I get you something?
Anna: Yes, the head of Michael Cambias. Or a hot bath.
David: Well, that can be arranged. The bath, obviously.
Anna: You seem a lot calmer than you were at the courtroom.
David: I had some time to cool off.
Anna: Can I say thank you?
David: For what?
Anna: For telling the truth on the stand. I know you wanted to incriminate Michael. So do I. But lying about it would have just --
David: Well, maybe I should have. I mean, I did the right thing, right, and look what happened. A rapist walked.
Anna: I don't feel good about this, either. But we need proof.
David: Bianca's word, her testimony should have been proof enough.
Anna: I know that. God, I should have got better evidence. I should never have arrested him until I had that.
David: No, don't you do that. Don't you start beating yourself up. You did everything that you could. Come here.
Anna: I am very tense.
David: Well, that is something I can help with. Come on, turn around.
Anna: Oh, what happened today, I just can't imagine how Bianca feels, or her mother.
David: I'm happy you came home. You once said that you believe that we can get through the pain together. Do you still believe that's possible?
Anna: I think if we are open with each other, we can get through just about anything. What is all that? Hmm?
David: That is just some research.
Anna: What kind of research?
Kendall: Bianca. I'm sorry. I just -- I just wanted to see you. Is that ok?
Bianca: Come in if you want.
Kendall: Maybe we should go. Maybe we should leave.
Aidan: No, you can do this. If you need me, I'll be right outside.
Kendall: Is Erica here?
Bianca: She's sleeping.
Kendall: Is she ok? After she collapsed, I was really worried.
Bianca: She needs some rest. She doesn't sleep at night. Neither of us does.
Kendall: You were really amazing at the hearing. Bianca, I'm so sorry. I am so sorry for what Michael did to you and for how he hurt you. I will never forgive myself for bringing him here. I never would have thought in a million years that he would dare touch you. And if I had only known that he was capable of -- of --
Bianca: Of rape? Mom told me that whenever she looks at you, she sees the man that raped her. Every time she sees you, every time she hears your voice, she remembers being raped.
Kendall: I know that. I've spent years hating myself because of it. You don't know how I wish I could take away what happened to Erica that night, but I canít. And I wish to God I could make you forget what Michael did to you, but I can't do that, either. I'm sorry. Bianca, I'm sorry. I would sell my soul to undo what Michael did to you, but -- but all I can do is beg for your forgiveness. Please. Please, Bianca, please forgive me. Please, please say you'll forgive me. Please.
David: Look, I know what you're thinking, and I don't blame you.
Anna: What is it?
David: That Iím going to spike the community lemonade or some party punch bowl.
Anna: It's not my bubble bath, is it?
Anna: It's not perfume, that's for sure.
David: Look, it's nothing that I need to hide, all right? It's just a compound to potentially save people's lives.
Anna: It's a heart medication?
David: If it pans out. I think that it could help cure some damaged hearts.
Anna: Good. Good. Because there are a lot of hearts that need fixing.
David: Yeah. I don't blame you for being suspicious.
David: After what Cambias did to Bianca, believe me, Iíd like nothing better than to medicate him straight into hell, but I wonít.
Anna: Well, not everyone has your restraint. My men at the station would all like to take the law into their own hands, and when Cambias smiled for the cameras, I wanted to finish him off myself. Actually, I better get back to the station.
David: What about your bath?
Anna: Yeah, I have a lot of paperwork to clear up, and I think at this time of night, I might just finish it. Besides, you're occupied.
David: Will I see you later?
Anna: Don't wait up. I might pull an all-nighter.
Michael: This is so ridiculous. I'm pressing charges. Assault and battery, attempted murder, and that's just for starters. You're going to be in the hole so long, you're going to be able to learn a new language.
Greenlee: What are you doing? No personal calls. Company policy. If you call the police, we'll have to tell them what we saw.
Michael: Well, that's what witnesses are for, honey.
Greenlee: And we saw you throw the first punch.
Simone: Yeah, that's right.
Mia: Yeah, you totally ambushed Carlos.
Simone: He was just defending himself.
Michael: The cops aren't going to believe you.
Greenlee: You want to take that chance?
Michael: You know, you've got it all figured out, don't you?
Greenlee: Michael, you don't realize what you're up against. But I promise you, we'll fight you at every turn. You won't know what to expect next or from where. You'll be so busy looking over your shoulder, you won't even see us coming. We'll dog you until you wish you never heard of us.
Michael: Well, that day isn't too far away, now, is it?
Greenlee: Then get the hell out of here.
Michael: Fine. I'll leave. But I'll be back with my lawyers, and this time, we'll be dismantling the company lipstick by lipstick until there's nothing left but the bones, and then Iíll be taking those. So enjoy your victory. It'll be your last.
Simone: We showed him, didn't we?
Mia: I don't know whether to cheer or cry.
Greenlee: I'd cheer, but Iím scared the big, bad wolf is going to blow us down for good.
Kendall: But believe me, Bianca, I will spend the rest of my life making this up to you. I swear to you. If you'll just give me a chance, I promise I'll fix it. I'll fix it for you. I'll make things better for you. I'll help you get through this, Bianca, I swear.
Kendall: I'll do anything. I'll do anything. Whatever it takes -- whatever it takes to get you through this.
Bianca: There's nothing you can do, Kendall.
Kendall: Yes, of course there is, Bianca. Yes, there is. I'll punish Michael. I'll punish him. I'll make him suffer. I'll make him wish that he never met me.
Bianca: You can't help me. No one can.
Kendall: Hit me. Hit me. Bianca, hit me. You must hate me for bringing Michael here, so hit me. Hit me, scream at me, pull my hair, throw things at me -- something, please! Just hit me! I can take it, Bianca. Please, just do it. I can take it. I can.
Bianca: Mom and I were so happy when this picture was taken. I told her a joke. That's why she's laughing.
Kendall: You'll laugh again, Bianca.
Bianca: Mom laughed. She worked. She raised me. She lives her life every single day, but she never forgets. Is that how it's going to be? Is that how it has to be for me? Am I going to remember every time there's a storm? Every time I look at --
Kendall: I'll make it up to you, Bianca. I swear to God. I swear to God, I will make this up to you. I will make things right! I swear to you, I will. I will!
Bianca: Kendall, I -- stop, I -- I didn't mean you. Kendall!
Aidan: Well, I see that you still got all your limbs and your hair's still on your head. I didn't hear any screaming, so I take it they went easy on you.
Kendall: Oh, I -- I only saw Bianca.
Kendall: And it was rough at first, but you were right. It was the right thing to do for both of us.
Aidan: You see? Families stick together through the hard times. I'm proud of you. Come here.
Greenlee: Cambias is a lunatic. He'll destroy Fusion just to get even. Maybe I should have played him.
Carlos: Look, it was my fault. I'm the one who threw the first punch.
Greenlee: He deserved it. I mean, who am I kidding? None of us could have held back for very long. We started with an idea.
Mia: And a stove.
Greenlee: And made it happen. God, every time I walk through these doors, I feel so proud. This company is the best of me.
Simone: Of us.
Mia: But it wasn't enough, was it?
Juan Pablo: Don't give up yet.
Greenlee: Michael's majority owner. He can do whatever he wants.
Mia: Yeah, he can grind us into the dust if he wants.
Juan Pablo: No. Your company's value is the four of you, your vision. Michael needs you. He knows it.
Mia: So maybe we still have a chance.
Juan Pablo: I choose to think so.
Greenlee: Well, whatever happens, thank you for everything you've done for us.
Tad: I wouldn't be so quick with my thanks if I were you.
Tad: Well, it turns out our new friend has been hiding a big secret. Isn't that right, Mr. Reyes?
Jack: Officer O'Neal.
Ofc. O'Neal: Mr. Montgomery. We don't see you down here often.
Ofc. OíNeal: What can we do you for?
Jack: I just need to go over some evidence for some of my actives.
Ofc. OíNeal: Sure thing. Sir --
Jack: What is it?
Ofc. OíNeal: I just wanted to say you and the chief did real good. The guys -- we're real steamed that Cambias got off.
Jack: Yeah, well, this one's not over yet.
Ofc. OíNeal: Just so you know, that guy so much as jaywalks, we're going to be reading him his rights.
Jack: Do me a favor, will you tell the boys to play this one by the book? Because when Cambias does go down, I want him to stay down.
Ofc. OíNeal: Oh, yeah, we won't screw up. You got my word.
Jack: I appreciate it. I know I can always count on you guys.
Ofc. OíNeal: Sir?
Ofc. OíNeal: You need anything, you let me know.
Jack: Thanks, Jimmy, I will.
Aidan: All right, I'll call you in the morning.
Kendall: Ok. Not too early, please.
Aidan: All right.
Tad: I'm thinking about Greenlee.
Greenlee: Why would I possibly care?
Tad: Because the truth is Juan Pablo and your ex-boyfriend are actually brothers. It is the truth, isn't it, Carlos?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Tad: What's wrong with you two? You a couple of murderers?
Carlos: You're half right.
Maggie: I'll kill him. I swear to God, Michael Cambias is a dead man.
Reggie: I said Iím not stupid, all right? Jack, I know what you're doing.
