All My Children Transcript Wednesday 12/3/03
Proofread by Gisele
Aidan: That better?
Mia: Frostbite. I'm sure of it. Ooh. Oh.
Aidan: Feeling warm?
Aidan: I'm going to go get you a blanket.
Mia: I know what you're doing -- even if you don't. This time, neither one of us is going to let you get away with it.
Greenlee: Don't hover, Mother, and stop treating me like I need Betty Ford.
Mary: I thought --
Mary: We agreed that I would take you home and tuck you --
Greenlee: I don't need a babysitter.
Mary: You shouldn't be alone.
Greenlee: Isn't alone what we do best, Mother?
Mary: Yes, and that's why I understand why it hurts you so much that your father rejected you along with all the others, and for what? To help Kendall?
Greenlee: Do you have to remind me?
Jack: Greenlee, are you all right?
Greenlee: Daddums! I'm all kinds of faboo!
Jack: So I can see. I just stopped by to see --
Greenlee: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Take my arm.
Jack: Take your arm?
Greenlee: Take it, take it. Now, Mother, you get ahold of the other one. Go ahead, go ahead. Ok. Make a wish and pull!
Bianca: It's not a hard question, is it? Are you going to let Kendall be convicted for killing Michael?
Erica: Sweetheart, where is this coming from?
Bianca: I don't know. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Kendall's behind bars.
David: Well, none of us are happy about that, Bianca.
Bianca: And I know that the two of you were together the night that Michael was murdered.
Erica: Well, what does that have to do with Kendall being arrested?
Bianca: Nothing -- unless you and David killed Michael.
Kendall: What, did you come here to gloat? Well, save it. I may be down, but don't start shoveling dirt on my coffin yet.
Ryan: Well, the hole's been dug.
Kendall: A lot you know. This is just a little setback.
Ryan: Wow. Glass is half full on that side of the bars. I'm impressed.
Kendall: Why don't you get the hell out of my face? Whatever you're selling, I don't need it. I'm not interested, and I don't want to -- Well, I hope it was good for you. Now you can see yourself out.
Ryan: Kendall, Kendall, Kendall, why do you make it so incredibly hard to love you?
Kendall: Because I've already done the love thing with you, Ryan. I know what it's like. You know, a few sweet words, even your Mama's ring, and then taillights.
Ryan: So you got me all figured out?
Kendall: Yeah, pretty much, yeah. I know what you're doing. You won, I lost. So have your big laugh and get the hell out of here.
Ryan: Now, is that why I'm here? Because I could have sworn there was another reason. Got it -- DNA. I'm here for DNA.
Kendall: Ok, you're trying to threaten me? You saw the sonogram, you saw the test results. I'm having Michael's baby. Deal with it.
Ryan: Now, have I ever actually said that you weren't?
Kendall: Yeah, frequently.
Ryan: True, but I want to let you in on a little secret. I've had a change of heart.
Kendall: You can't change what you don't have.
Ryan: Ok, so try this -- if it does come down to a test --
Kendall: Which you'll want me to take as soon as possible.
Ryan: No, I'm not that predictable, am I?
Kendall: Oh, no, but you're that greedy.
Ryan: No, no. Actually, I'm very optimistic. I know for a fact that if you take that DNA test, it'll prove one thing --
Kendall: And what's that?
Ryan: It'll prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are carrying a little Cambias.
Kendall: What the hell are you trying to do?
Bianca: Who wants to go first?
David: The reason your mother and I were together the night Michael disappeared is because we're lovers, Bianca. Not murderers.
Bianca: Any comment, Mom?
Erica: David's right. After that horrible hearing, we turned to each other that night, and we realized that we -- we still care.
Bianca: Please stop treating me like a child. My childhood officially ended the night that I was raped. I know that you want to protect me, but the way to do that is not by lying to me.
Erica: I don't want to lie to you, sweetheart. I just love you so much.
Bianca: I know, Mom. Please love me enough to tell me the truth. I'll start. I'll start with what I know. I know that you and David aren't lovers.
Erica: Well, what makes you say that?
Bianca: Experience. I remember when you two were really in love.
David: All right, so we've mellowed the second time around. That doesn't mean we don't love each other anymore.
Bianca: David -- no offense, but I know the way Mom behaves when she's head over heels, and right now, both feet are planted firmly on the ground. So who wants to fill me in?
Erica: All right. I'll tell you the truth.
Mary: I'm not going to leave you like this.
Jack: I'll take care of her.
Mary: You promise?
Mary: I'll call you in the morning.
Greenlee: Righty-o, Mumsy.
Jack: No, I think I'll pass.
Greenlee: So, how's Kendall?
Jack: Just about the way you might expect, except she's spending the night in jail on a murder charge.
Greenlee: My goodness. For an ideal daughter, Kendall sure gets tangled up in nasty situations.
Jack: Yes, well, she's not my daughter, you are. You'll thank me for this in the morning.
Greenlee: I always say "thank you" -- and "please." So, please, get your own.
Jack: Gee, I hate to admit this, but I think maybe Mary was right. We should go home. Reggie's waiting for --
Greenlee: No can do, Daddy-o. Home is where the heart is, and I don't own one of those -- a heart or a home.
Jack: Oh, please, stop feeling sorry for yourself, huh? Let's try to work this out, could we?
Greenlee: I already have. You see, home is a round hole, and I am the square peg. The invisible square peg. What do you think of that?
Jack: Well, I don't think we're going to get anywhere if you continue to drown yourself in champagne, so I'll tell you what -- why don't you just stop the self-pity and let's try to figure out how to deal with this.
Aidan: Get away with what?
Mia: Walking away from me for my own good.
Aidan: I'm just getting you a blanket, that's all.
Mia: Well, I was warming up just fine.
Aidan: Is that why your lips are still blue?
Mia: A blanket is not going to change that, but you can.
Mia: I want you, Aidan, and you want me, but it's not going to happen if you think you've got to protect me.
Aidan: I'm not trying to protect you.
Mia: The hell you're not.
[Mia turns radio on]
Mia: You know, I'm not Kendall, and I know that, but I don't have to care about that. I just want to be with you tonight.
Aidan: Except for -- I can't promise you a future.
Mia: There is no future, and there is no past. There's just you and me right now, and I think it would be a crime to waste another minute.
Aidan: No, as tempting as it is, I don't want to mess you up, Mia.
Mia: Aidan, think about how good it could be. Ok? Forget about what's best for me, forget about what's going to happen tomorrow morning or the morning after that.
Aidan: Tomorrow morning, I have commitments.
Mia: Oh, my God. What am I going to do with you? You are the most noble, honest, wonderful man I have ever met.
Aidan: Yeah, right. I'm no saint.
Mia: Ok, then prove it.
Aidan: What do you have in mind?
Mia: How about a long, hot shower --
Singer: I can't help myself
Mia: Followed by hours and hours of whatever you can think of next. You think you're up to it? Hmm?
Aidan: I think I am.
Singer: Really, really really can't help myself
Singer: When my love
Singers: My love yeah
Aidan: What are you doing? Come here.
Singer: But I really, really, really can't help myself
Radio Announcer: This just in. Kendall Hart Cambias has been arrested for the murder of her husband, corporate raider and alleged rapist Michael Cambias. Authorities made the arrest after months of investigation. Michael Cambias' frozen body was discovered in a waterfront warehouse weeks after his reported disappearance. Although Mrs. Cambias claims she last saw her husband in Vegas after their elopement, reportedly new evidence points to her involvement in his murder.
Greenlee: Tonight was my moment of truth. A cosmic kick in the pants because whether you see me or not, I see the woman that I am and I accept me.
Jack: And you keep that up, and you're seeing double.
Greenlee: Isn't one of me more than enough?
Jack: At this moment, yes, it is. Look, what happened today --
Greenlee: I saw it in big, bright colors, Dad. I'm not the center of attention. I'm not your princess, I'm not the sun that everyone revolves around. I revolve alone. Can I do that?
Jack: Sweetheart, you are not alone.
Greenlee: You try to do the right thing, what does it get you? Invisible. You turn into wallpaper, but I'll live with it because it's what you want -- a good daughter.
Jack: Who is going to have a hell of a hangover tomorrow morning? Now will you please give me your car keys? Please?
Jack: Thank you.
Greenlee: You see? Good daughter.
Jack: Yes, and now my good daughter is going to go home, go to bed, sleep this off, and we're going to talk about this tomorrow.
Greenlee: Oh, you go ahead. I'll book a room here -- as soon as I finish this.
Jack: You can't stay here. This place is closed.
Greenlee: Au contraire, mon pere. I tipped the Mr. D $500.
Jack: The Mr. D?
Greenlee: So I can camp here as long as I want. I'll just turn one of these tablecloths into a tent, and you -- you go on like you said. Reggie's waiting.
Jack: Greenlee, right now, the only person I care about is you.
Greenlee: Oh, please. You're all about your precious Kendall and your extra-special precious Erica. Those are the two that you should lose sleep over, but while you're at it you should grow some worry lines over that Brit who's in love with Kendall. Now that's a royal sucker.
Jack: Are you sure this is the way you want to do this?
Greenlee: Since when does it matter what I want to do? So take your big daddy shoulder and let Kendall cry on it about her dead rapist husband and her devil baby. Because I'm peachy, and I don't need anybody. Especially you.
Mia: Did I mention to you that I read minds?
Aidan: Then you'll know there's a shower in the near future.
Mia: And when I get into that shower, I want every part of you in there with me. And right now, every nerve, every brain cell, everything in you is screaming for you to go to Kendall.
Aidan: There's not much I can do for her. She's behind bars.
Mia: Yeah, but that doesn't mean that you're not going to try and help her. So even if she did do it, we don't want her convicted, right? So you're going, and I don't want to hear another word.
Aidan: And what are you going to do?
Mia: Oh, you just do what you have to do, ok? And then I will be waiting here for you when you get back. Oh, wait.
Aidan: What's that -- soap?
Mia: Carry it with you as a reminder of what's waiting for you, and unless you get hitched at the jailhouse, I'm going to make love to you all night long.
Kendall: Ok, I see your lips moving, and I hear your voice speaking. You're not making any sense to me.
Ryan: Ok. Then look at my lips very, very closely. You will pass that test.
Kendall: Because I'm pregnant.
Ryan: Yeah -- about that -- you see, I had a nice little chat with Bianca, and she --
Kendall: Damn it, Ryan, why are you -- quit haunting my sister about this. You have no right to drag her into this. It's between you and me.
Ryan: Well, the way I see it, Binky's right in the thick of things.
Kendall: What does any of this have to do with her?
Ryan: Kendall, the whole reason that you and I are separated by these bars has everything to do with Bianca. You deny it all you want, all right, but your sister is the cause of everything that's happened in Pine Valley since the day she was raped.
Kendall: No, that's not true.
Ryan: Well, then it's time for you to tell me what is true.
Erica: The truth is I was so afraid that they were going to arrest David, I had to make up an alibi, and so I said that we were lovers.
Bianca: But the night that Michael died, you did stay at David's cabin.
Erica: We went to Michael's condo.
Bianca: What did you do? Did you see him? Did you --
Erica: Believe, me, Bianca, when I got to David's, I wanted to kill Michael, but David had something better in mind.
David: After what Michael did to you, death would have been too easy. I wanted him to suffer.
Erica: So David concocted a kind of a chemical karma.
Bianca: You poisoned him?
David: No, better. I made a drug designed to render him impotent for the rest of his unnatural life.
Erica: So he could never attack any other woman, honey, the way he had attacked you. Do you want us to go on? Well, we got into Michael's condo, and David poured the drug into his scotch.
David: We waited outside for him to come home, and then we watched.
Bianca: Did he drink it?
David: Yeah. He guzzled back a full shot, and I got to be honest with you, Bianca. I'm glad the bastard is rotting in hell, but I'm also really sorry that he never lived long enough to realize that he couldn't be a man ever again. He certainly had it coming.
Bianca: I -- I have to know. Is that all you did?
Erica: You want answers. I wanted to kill Michael that night. I wanted to wipe that smirk off his face. I wanted to see him beg for mercy. I wanted to see him be so afraid and I wanted to watch him breathe his last, miserable breath, but he was alive when we left the condo.
Bianca: Are you sure there's nothing else? There's nothing that you're not telling me? Look, I understand why you didn't share this with me before, but I got to ask you to stop trying to protect me.
David: We've told you what no one else knows, Bianca. What more do you want?
Bianca: I want help. Look, whatever you two did that night --
David: We just told you what we did.
Bianca: Mom, I see how angry you are with Kendall and it scares me, and I know that David -- David has a pretty loose definition of what is right and wrong, and I just -- that's why I need for you both to promise me something.
Erica: Yes, if I can.
David: All right.
Bianca: All right. I need you both to swear to me that you wouldn't let Kendall go to prison if either of you killed Michael.
Ryan: Face it, Kendall, you would not be here if it wasn't for Bianca.
Kendall: The reason I'm here is because the cops had bogus evidence against me. Hell, you probably planted it yourself.
Ryan: I did not plant it. I don't want to see you take the fall for Michael's murder.
Kendall: Ok, again, I can take care of myself.
Ryan: Yeah, because you're doing such a bang-up job so far.
Kendall: You know what? If you want to help me, then just stay the hell away from Bianca.
Ryan: I am not out to hurt her.
Kendall: Good. Because there's no reason for you to be in her face.
Ryan: Yeah, actually, there is. There's a really good reason -- you.
Kendall: What, is this where I'm supposed to fall on my knees and thank you and tell you what a great, big, strong hero you are?
Ryan: Well, hey, I got the time.
Kendall: Fine. Then listen up. You are by far, the greediest, most self-centered, obnoxious, all-about-you bastard I have ever known.
Ryan: I didn't need a thank-you. I'm telling you that you will pass the test, and all I get from you is I get grief.
Kendall: Well, of course I'll pass the test. I'm pregnant.
Ryan: Yeah, yeah, sure you are. It's going to cost me a boatload of cash to pull this off. You've got to give me just a little bit of credit here. I'm a hell of a good loser.
Kendall: Oh, you've never lost a thing in your life. At least, not without a fight.
Ryan: I have learned to choose what I win.
Kendall: Well, this time, you're not going to win anything. In fact, you know what? You're going to lose it all because you can't beat me. You never could, you never will.
Ryan: Do you ever think for just one second that you and I are on the same side?
Kendall: No. You know what? I've played that before. I was a loser once. I'm not going to do it again. As far as I'm concerned, us -- this -- we're dead.
Ryan: Really? Because we sure weren't on the roof that night.
Kendall: Oh, the roof?
Kendall: Well, that was a really good workout, but look at me. There's no stars in my eyes, no butterflies in my stomach. So why don't you just get over the roof and get over yourself, and stay out of my life?
[Turns music on]
Singer: Is it love? Is it love?
Singer: Been down this road before broken heart and wanted more mm-hmm but when I look into your eyes there's something there I'm lifted off the floor
Singers: Is it love?
Singer: Knocking on the door
Singers: What is this feeling I've never felt before? Is it love?
Singer: Raining down on me anticipate. Is it love?
David: Did you ever think that just maybe Kendall did knock Michael off?
Bianca: If she did, she did it for me.
David: All right, but if she did, it's out of our hands, Bianca.
Bianca: And if she didn't do it, I don't think that she deserves to be railroaded into prison for a crime she didn't commit.
Erica: Bianca, honey, I would never let Kendall be convicted for something that I did.
Bianca: I see how much you hate her now, Mom, and I'm just afraid that you would do anything to get back at her.
Erica: I won't. Honey, of course not. I mean, yes, I'm angry at Kendall right now for what she's done. I don't understand it, but she's my child. I would never turn my back on her. I promise I will do everything I can to help her. We all will. I promise.
Bianca: Ok, thank you, thank you. David, can I have your word on that, too?
David: I know how much your sister means to you, and I swear, I would never let Kendall be punished for anything that I did.
Bianca: All right, thank you. You don't know what that means to me. Thank you both for being honest with me.
Erica: I hope that we've put your mind at rest.
Bianca: Yeah, a little bit. Good night.
David: Good night.
Erica: Good night, sweetheart.
David: What is it?
Erica: David, when did this happen? When did this all start to fall apart?
Aidan: You don't deserve to be in here, Kendall, no matter what they found.
Kendall: Yeah, well, tell that to Lieutenant Frye.
Aidan: Oh, I plan to, with pleasure.
Kendall: And just seeing your face gives me a shot of courage.
Aidan: Yeah, that's something you've never been short of.
Kendall: Yeah, well, look where it got me.
Aidan: Do you need anything?
Kendall: Oh, maybe a pack of sheets or something so I can tie them together and bust out of here.
Aidan: It's not a bad idea. Maybe a hacksaw would do the trick.
Kendall: Oh. I don't know what I would ever do without you, Aidan. Well, it looks like I'm about to find out, huh?
Aidan: Not a chance.
Kendall: You mean that?
Aidan: I always say what I mean. You know that about me.
Kendall: But last week, when you said we couldn't be in love in the middle of this train wreck, you were right. Everything is just -- everything's so screwed up and complicated, and now things are even more complicated.
Aidan: Oh, I got that on the way in. But I'm here, anyway. I'm not going to give up on you, Kendall. You know, there's too much evidence that says you didn't kill Michael. I'm going to prove that at your trial. That's a promise.
Kendall: You've done so much for me, Aidan. How -- I mean, what can I do to thank you?
Aidan: I didn't do it for the thanks, Kendall. Well, I got to go.
Aidan: Keep your chin up and all that. Oh, um -- if you end up wanting that hacksaw, I'll bake you a cake. Chocolate, right?
Singer: Is it love?
Greenlee: Sorry. They're kind of big.
Ryan: You're blotto.
Ryan: Yeah, tipsy, skagoo, little stinko.
Greenlee: What? Hey! I'm not stinko. I'm the Queen of Mean. Queen Meanlee. Get it?
Greenlee: Greenlee, Meanlee?
Ryan: Yeah, yeah, ok. What do you say we sit this one out, and you tell me what's going on?
Greenlee: I lied to you.
Greenlee: I'm not the queen. I'm a square peg.
Ryan: In a world of round ones.
Ryan: Poor Greenlee. Miserable at last.
Greenlee: Oh. Smart at last. That was supposed to be my Thanksgiving in there. My father, my family. You know what happened? Kendall. She wasn't wanted. No one invited her, but she blasted in. I mean, there aren't enough drumsticks to go around, right?
Greenlee: It would have been perfect if she wasn't there. One big happy family holiday.
Ryan: Now, would that have been before or after Reggie dumped the gravy all over David's lap?
Greenlee: That's not the point. I'm Jack's daughter. He's supposed to love me. What does he do? When he finds out his prized-almost-but-not-quite stepdaughter Kendall gets her pregger self arrested for murdering her dead rapist not-quite-husband, my father forgets that I -- his nonpregnant, nonmurdering daughter exists. Poof! I'm invisible. Can you see me?
Ryan: Well, I felt you step on my foot.
Greenlee: That's not the same. Can you see me now?
Ryan: Yeah, living color.
Greenlee: Hmm! No. That's impossible. It's the dress.
Greenlee: You see the dress.
Ryan: Yes, the dress is lovely, just like you, Greenlee.
Greenlee: But I bet you couldn't see me if I took my clothes off. You know, I don't get it. I tried -- I really did -- to be a real daughter, a real sister, a real friend, to do the right thing. To be sweet.
Ryan: Why? I mean, you're not applying for sainthood. Nobody expects you to be perfect or sweet.
Greenlee: More like the badder the better. I make nice -- not easy -- and I get shot down, put down, and ignored.
Greenlee: You know what?
Ryan: I'm not sure I want to hear it.
Greenlee: This good-girl thing is not working for me.
Ryan: Well, the bad-girl thing wasn't so hot, either.
Greenlee: You survived it. Me and Kendall. What is with her? She steals companies and men. She's -- she's marrying Bianca's rapist. She -- she's having his kid. She is accused of murder, and what happens? Jackson smacks me down, and he can't help her enough. How's that compute?
Ryan: Hold on. Come here for one second. Just --
Ryan: Oh, it's just as I suspected. There's a shot of green in that red.
Greenlee: You think I'm jealous of Kendall? Please.
Ryan: Well, it sounds like she's got what you want.
Greenlee: Hmm. What? Aidan? I don't want him. You -- I sure as hell don't want you.
Ryan: What I mean is -- you think that she's on the inside and you're on the outside looking in.
Greenlee: How does she do it? I mean, we used to screw up together. We were a pair. We were a force! Even better, everyone hated Kendall more. And now, she's the Queen of the Damned May, and I'm Queen Greenlee! You saw it. Even Erica, who spits nails at Kendall, was trying to defend her. What's up with that?
Erica: It's just so hard to believe I stood in front of a mirror like this just a few months ago. I thought I was going to marry Jack. Bianca was here. Kendall was here. Oh, my daughters were exquisite that day. Took my breath away. Do you know what we talked about?
Erica: My mother. I was just so nervous I could hardly function, but my daughters stood in front of the mirror, and they reminded me of Mona's legacy. Bianca so -- so determined to live life on her own terms. Kendall so desperate to find her place in the world. And me, a mother who's tried so hard, but I have failed to give either one of them, you know, what they needed.
David: You've given your daughters everything.
Erica: We're so different, but at that moment, we came together. We were three Kane women. We were unbeatable, unstoppable, triumphant. And then we walked out of this room, and the world fell apart.
Bianca: Maggie, I -- Mags, are you here? "Cramming at the library. Back at midnight -- if I'm lucky. Love, Maggie."
Michael's apparition: Bianca. How's it going? Hmm. Getting worse, huh? Well, told you it would. Popcorn?
Bianca: What are you doing here?
Michael: Well, I may be dead, but it doesn't mean I'm gone, you know. I mean, I am inside you, remember? Yeah, I know, I know, it's your baby, not mine, but not for long. So, how's the family? Too bad about Kendall, huh? Yeah, Erica and David can make all the promises they want, but that slut is going to swing for killing me.
Bianca: You don't exist.
Michael: Well, you keep thinking those positive thoughts of yours and pray to -- well, whoever it is you pray to -- but you can't stop me, Bianca. I'm not through with you. I am going to take your sister and your baby and everyone else you love.
Ryan: Ok. So Kendall's in the spotlight. Big deal. Trust me, Greenlee, you have a light all your own.
Greenlee: Big whoop.
Ryan: You're gorgeous and you're smart and you're hell on heels.
Ryan: I mean that in a good way. Anybody that meets you will never, ever forget you. Trust me, I have the bruises to prove it.
Greenlee: You're sure you're not stinko, too?
Ryan: I am stone-cold sober, trust me. Even if I don't see you, even if don't want to see you, I know you're there.
Greenlee: Are you being nice to me because I won't remember this in the morning?
Ryan: Well, I don't know, and I mean every single word. How about a dance?
Singer: If you need some TLC, I'll be there ASAP; and I will say if you need a friend, you were right there to hold me tight, girl. If you need some TLC, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll be there ASAP, hmm.
Kendall: [Alone in her jail cell] Mommy.
Erica: Did we do the right thing? With Bianca?
David: We did what we had to do. I'm just sorry that we couldn't tell her the whole truth about what happened that night.
Mona's voice: You know, we have quite a legacy here. Three generations of strong women.
Mona: And you're right, it's not an ending. We've only just begun. Oh, the whole future looks so promising.
Bianca: You're wrong, you know. You're not going to take anything from me ever again. Not my baby, not my sister, and not my family.
Michael: Well, I'd settle for two out of three.
Bianca: Well, you're not going to get anything. I couldn't stop you before, but I'm a lot stronger now. And I am going to fight you with everything I have, and I'm going to win. [Michael disappears]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Bianca: I need for you to schedule a test -- an amniocentesis.
Erica: My hand is out to you. Whether you take it or not, that's up to you.
Simone: It's Carlos. You have to help him. He can't breathe.
Greenlee: What are you waiting for?
