All My Children Transcript Thursday 2/12/04
Proofread by Gisele
Boyd: Erica. I didn't know you were here.
Erica: This is my company, my office, my desk. No one else belongs here but me.
Boyd: Right, of course. I mean, I'm sorry. I just thought you had a lot to deal with right now.
Erica: Boyd, I am Enchantment, and I need those lab results yesterday.
Boyd: I'll get right on it.
Jack: Well, there you are. What the hell's going on?
Erica: Business as usual.
Jack: You didn't get any of the messages I left for you?
Erica: Honestly, a chimp would have a better grasp on this campaign.
Jack: You know, I called all over this town. I talked to Palmer, I talked to Myrtle. Nobody knew where you were. I've been half worried to death.
Erica: And why is that, Jack? Afraid I'd attack Bianca with these?
David: Nurse, we need a gurney here! How are you feeling? Any pain? Any nausea?
Bianca: No, David, just the same -- my water breaking.
David: Ok, everything's going to be fine. I'm going to page Dr. Clader. We're going to find out what's going on with you and this baby, ok?
J.R.: Well, you know, the Chandler name has its privileges.
Babe: Oh, my God, Bianca!
J.R.: Bianca --
Babe: What's going on?
J.R.: What are you doing here?
Bianca: It's my baby. I can't lose my baby!
Ryan: What? What is it? What do you want? Want to do another lightning round of who can you trust? Well, forget about it, ok? You take the leap or not. You believe that I love you, can the BS. About the doubts and the traps and Greenlee. You make us or you break us.
[Greenlee screams as she plunges down a hole in the ground]
David: Nurse, where the hell is Stan Clader? He's not answering my page.
Nurse: Dr. Clader's on sabbatical.
David: Who's covering for him?
Nurse: Dr. Cortez.
David: All right, get him down here Stat. Tell him that we've got a possible preterm labor, gestation 32 weeks. We need a fetal monitor hookup --
Babe: You're having a baby.
Bianca: Not yet, it's too soon. She's not due for eight weeks.
Babe: You know that you're having a girl? That is so great.
Bianca: No, it's just a feeling.
Babe: Well, boy or girl, everything is going to be ok.
J.R.: Babe's right. It's probably just a false alarm.
Bianca: But she's too little to be born. Her lungs aren't strong enough yet.
Babe: Hey, hey, don't you get ahead of that baby buggy. Let's just wait and see what the doctor has to say.
Bianca: I'm so scared.
Babe: I hear you. I sweat the sheets at night worrying about all the bad things that could happen to my little peanut. I mean, how is it that we could get all wrapped up in someone we haven't even met, and we can't even imagine our lives without them in it? So don't. Your little beauty is going to pop out when she is good and ready, and not a baby's breath sooner. Do you feel that? You either have a little tap dancer in there or a place-kicker for the Eagles, letting you know how strong she is, so don't you go worrying about a thing.
David: Bianca, this is Dr. Cortez.
Dr. Cortez: Bianca, hi. Let's get you inside and see what's going on. Nurse, start a saline drip.
David: Come on.
Babe: You'll be ok.
J.R.: That's not going to happen to you and your baby.
Babe: You mean our baby.
Krystal: Baby doll, you didn't tell me Bianca was pregnant.
Babe: I know, Mama. I didn't know. I mean, Bianca's gay and all.
Krystal: Well, honey, gay or straight, Bianca is a woman, and women have been having babies ever since Adam chomped down on that apple.
Babe: But babies are the best thing ever. Why would Bianca want to keep hers a secret?
Jack: No, sweetheart, I was not afraid you would go after Bianca with these. In fact, I know that you would die before you would hurt your daughter.
Erica: Ok. Can we please change the subject to something a little less morbid?
Jack: Yeah, you bet we can, over a nice long dinner at Chez Michel. What do you say?
Erica: Oh, Jack, really, I am way too busy.
Jack: Well, honey, you have to eat sometime, right?
Erica: Yes. Val's going to order something in.
Jack: A little desktop dining? Well, why don't I just pull up a chair and join you.
Erica: Look, Jack, I am racing a deadline.
Jack: Well, then I'll be right there at the finish line to cheer you on.
Erica: Jack, I cannot even concentrate with you staring at me.
Jack: Hallelujah. We finally made eye contact.
Erica: Please don't start.
Jack: How can I start? I can't even find an opening here, Erica.
Erica: Well, excuse me for not shirking my professional responsibilities.
Jack: What about your personal responsibilities, like to yourself, to your daughters?
Erica: Where is that coming from? I'm certainly not shirking my responsibilities to my daughters. In any case, both Bianca and Kendall have more than proved that they can take very good care of themselves, and there are a million things here that need my attention.
Jack: I see, so what do you plan to do? Hole up here in your office? I mean, honey, you can't use Enchantment as a way to dodge the things that are going on out there that you don't like.
Erica: Is that what you think I'm doing?
Jack: Frankly, I can't tell what the hell you're doing because you won't talk to me. You can deny it all you want, but there's something going on, obviously.
Erica: I deny nothing, Jack, and I am perfectly aware of what's going on out there. Kendall is still on trial for that bastard's murder. My daughter Bianca is still pregnant with his child. So what do you want me to do about it, Jack? You want me to have an attack of the vapors? Want me to check into Oak Haven for a massage and a meltdown? I mean, I'm sorry. If you came here expecting to see me crumble into a thousand pieces, I hate to disappoint you, you're sadly mistaken because I don't shatter. I'm Erica Kane.
Kendall: You know, Ryan, it's not paranoia when someone is really out to get you. I'm about to go down for Michael's murder, and your best friend is the woman who literally stripped me of my alibi.
Ryan: But, Kendall, the trial is not over. The jury could still cut you loose. We could always appeal.
Kendall: No, Ryan, my lawyer -- my own lawyer is pushing me to take 10 years at Statesville! Which leads me to believe that there really could be a lethal injection if I don't cop a plea.
Ryan: I will not let that happen. Together we can beat this. Together we can beat anything.
Kendall: Who's "we"? Who's "we," Ryan? You and me or you and Greenlee?
Ryan: Why is it so hard for you to believe that we could have a happy ending?
Kendall: I want to believe that, Ryan. I do. I want that like I need air to breathe.
Ryan: Well, then breathe and believe.
Kendall: Yeah, but Greenlee -- Greenlee --
Ryan: Damn it, Kendall, Greenlee is not what's coming between us.
Kendall: See? There you go again. You're defending her again.
Ryan: Just forget about Greenlee, ok? Forget about the trial because you -- you are the single biggest obstacle in our future because you are convinced that I set you up so I could put you away.
Kendall: Yeah, but you still won't tell me that you didn't!
Ryan: You see, I see a happy ending. You see conspiracies. I see a home with a backyard and kids running around, and what do you see? You see a woman on cellblock B who's getting a post card from me and Greenlee on our honeymoon. Kendall, I proposed to you. I want to marry you. I want the rest of your life, whatever that turns out to be.
Kendall: Well, it's pretty easy to propose to a woman facing 25 years to life.
Ryan: If you believe that, then you can have
it your way. And you win because we never had a chance. So -- so why the hell
did you call me back here? You'll feel so confident underneath it all.
[Greenlee groans as she tries to stand up in her underground prison]
Greenlee: What is this? Ow! Ow. Ow. Full charge -- yes. Oh, no signal, no signal. Damn it. These walls might have been made with kryptonite. Help! Somebody help me! Please, somebody! Help!
Erica: I really don't even believe this. You're not going to be happy until I come completely unglued. Well, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm not the quivering hysteric you need me to be.
Jack: Sweetheart, this is not about what I need.
Erica: Exactly. This is where I need to be. This is what I need to be doing. And how I choose to cope is my decision, not yours.
Jack: Yeah, well, you know what? You are -- you're exactly right about that, so I will do my best to keep my inner watchdog on a shorter leash, huh?
Erica: Look, let's just forget it.
Jack: Just don't forget this -- if you are feeling lost or overwhelmed --
Jack: And you need somebody just to hold you -- well, that somebody, my dear, would be yours truly, ok? So what happened to your engagement ring?
Ryan: You're really going to do this. You're really going to fall back on us again.
Kendall: You forced my hand.
Ryan: You know that dream that you kept having where the two of us were dancing on the edge of the cliff? Well, you're not dancing anymore. You're in free-fall. And all I ever tried to do was catch you.
Dr. Cortez: Bianca, are you comfortable? Good. I'm going to run these samples down to the lab.
Bianca: Just tell me that my baby's going to be ok.
Dr. Cortez: The best thing you can do for your baby is to stay calm and focus on a positive outcome. Ok.
Bianca: David, why am I on saline?
David: Oh, it's just to keep you and the baby hydrated. It's standard procedure. Also in case they need to perform an emergency C-section, then --
Bianca: What, a C-section? No, David, you can't let them take my baby. Please, promise me you won't let them take my baby.
Babe: Oh, my God. J.R., I know how Bianca got pregnant.
J.R.: Well, judging by how far along she looks, the timing would be right.
Babe: Oh, J.R., that's horrible.
Krystal: What? What? What? What?
Babe: Mama, last year, the worst thing happened. Bianca got raped.
Krystal: Yeah, yeah, I heard about that -- by that weirdo that got whacked, right?
Babe: And now she's having his baby.
Krystal: Oh, God bless her. Takes a special kind of person to carry that load to term.
Babe: God. No wonder she kept it a secret.
J.R.: Well, if the hospital grapevine's up to speed, it won't be a secret much longer.
Babe: Who else do you think knows?
J.R.: Well, Kendall's a sure bet. I'm sure she used Bianca to rig the paternity test.
Babe: The fetal cells that said that Michael was the daddy -- they came from Bianca.
Krystal: Well, slap me naked and call me Wanda.
Babe: I can't believe that Kendall and Bianca pulled that off.
J.R.: Hey, don't go getting any ideas.
Babe: J.R., I am thinking of nothing but Bianca right now. Having a baby is the best thing ever. You just want to share it with the whole world.
Krystal: Oh, that's exactly how I felt with you. I'd go up to strangers in the street and tell them why I was the happiest woman in the world.
Babe: But then Bianca's baby didn't come from love. How do you think that makes her feel?
Krystal: I can't even begin to imagine.
Babe: I remember the night that our baby was conceived. We should be all kinds of grateful that our child came from nothing but 100% love.
J.R.: Or a one-night stand with my brother, depending on who the father turns out to be.
Babe: I'm going to go wait for this test someplace a little bit more friendly.
J.R.: Yeah, you know, I think I'm going to go make a phone call.
Krystal: Yeah, not so fast, buckaroo.
J.R.: You know, Krystal, I'm really not in the mood right now.
Krystal: I don't give a hoot in Hades what you're in the mood for. You clog dance on my baby doll, and you're going to have to mess with me, the mother of all mother-in-laws.
Erica: My engagement ring. I -- I took it off.
Jack: Yes, so I see. Do you want to tell me why?
Erica: Yes, well, I took it off last night to put on some hand cream, and I guess I forgot to put it back on.
Jack: And that's all there is to it?
Erica: Well, of course that's all there is to it, Jack. What more could there be? And I'm sure that it's exactly where I left it -- on my nightstand. And you know what? I'm going to go get it right now before some predatory male just assumes that I'm available and stakes his claim.
Jack: Honey, look, look, look, look, I'm not afraid of the competition. I just thought that once we got that ring back on that it would stay there, that's all.
Erica: And they say women are such romantics.
Jack: You remember when I told you once upon a time that you took root in my heart the day I met you, and you will live there until the day I die?
Erica: I remember.
Jack: Good. Sweetheart, I just want us to get it right this time. So if you have any doubts, if anything is troubling you, now would be a good time to put it out in the open.
Erica: My goodness, Jack. All this fuss just because I -- I took my engagement ring off and I neglected to put it back on?
Jack: So this time a cigar is just a cigar, huh? So we're on the same page? On with the wedding, full speed ahead, right?
Erica: Aye, aye, sir.
Jack: That's my first mate. Come here.
Erica: Ok, now you really have to let me get back to work.
Jack: You know what? How about just for tonight you forget about all this, you and I go upstairs --
Jack: Never fails, does it? Jack Montgomery.
David: Hey, Jack. It's me, David. I'm calling about Bianca.
Jack: What about her?
David: Well, she's here in the hospital, in the ER. There was a problem with the baby and there's a chance she might lose it.
Jack: I'll be right there. That was David Hayward.
Erica: What did he want?
Jack: He's with Bianca at the hospital. The baby's in some kind of -- some kind of --
Erica: Is Bianca all right?
Jack: Well, he didn't actually say, but I'm -- I'm going to go down there right now.
Erica: Well, then I'm going with you.
Jack: Are you sure you're up to it?
Erica: Well, of course I'm up to it. My daughter needs me.
[Knock on door]
Aidan: What happened?
Kendall: Well, you mean aside from the bomb that hit me at court?
Aidan: Come on, as far as hits go, you've taken a lot worse.
Kendall: Yeah, well, you can stick a fork in me and Ryan. We're done.
Aidan: All right. I'll -- I'll pop a beer and you can give me the down and dirty.
Kendall: What, you want me to pull up your shoulder for a crying session?
Aidan: Well, yeah, there's a vacancy. Go for it.
Kendall: No, Aidan, I'm sure you have something better to do than to clean up my mess.
Aidan: When I do, I promise you that I'll give you the heads-up.
Kendall: You are just too good to be true, aren't you?
Aidan: I gave you my word that I would see you through this to the end, didn't I?
Kendall: Yeah, well, this is the end. I crapped out.
Aidan: Oh, come on, Kendall. You got one more roll of the dice left in you. That's why I'm here.
Kendall: No, lady luck has given me the brush-off, Aidan. You should do the same.
Aidan: And now what's going to happen to you?
Kendall: Now I'm going to take what I have coming to me and end this nightmare for everyone.
J.R.: No, I'm not going to go another round with you on this, Krystal.
Krystal: Oh, just wait. Just -- just listen to me, all right? I want you to picture yourself sitting there with Babe when that doctor says what we've known along -- that you are that baby's natural-born daddy. Now, suddenly your heart is going to be so -- so full with all kinds of love that you're just going to want to party till you drop, but guess what -- somebody's popped all the balloons, torn down all the streamers, and the band's gone home. You see where you're headed, J.R.? You keep on going like you're doing, and Babe's not going to care one solid damn about you anymore. Now, you got to make a decision. You got to decide what's more important, your macho pride or your wife.
Krystal: Oh, hey, Babe. Where you been, honey?
Babe: Dr. Joe drew my blood.
Krystal: Oh, the head honcho himself, huh?
Babe: Well, I figured since everyone knows what a standup guy Dr. Joe is that J.R. doesn't have to worry about any funny business with the test results. And he even gave me this sucker for being such a good girl.
J.R.: Are you ok? Did it hurt?
Babe: I'm used to having it stuck to me, J.R. You just have to go get your cheek swabbed and we'll be done.
Krystal: I tell you what, honey, why don't we just blow this place and you and I go hit the Valentine's Sale at Lacey's, huh?
Babe: I want to hang around and make sure Bianca and her baby are ok.
J.R.: Well, then I'll wait with you.
Jack: Excuse me, nurse, we're Bianca Montgomery's family. Could you tell us how she's doing?
Nurse: Let me get Dr. Cortez.
Jack: Great, thank you.
Babe: Ms. Kane, Mr. Montgomery --
Babe: Bianca's going to be really glad that you're here.
Jack: Were you here when they brought in her in? How -- how was she?
Babe: Just spooked, mainly.
J.R.: But not in pain or anything.
Babe: She's just scared to pieces she's going to lose her baby. Ms. Kane, can I do something for you? I don't know, make some calls or get you some Java?
Erica: Nothing, thank you. Thank you, you're very sweet.
Krystal: Babe, wow. You told me you met Erica Kane, but I didn't know you guys were gal pals.
Jack: Dr. Cortez, I'm Jack Montgomery, Bianca's uncle --
Erica: I'm -- I'm Bianca's mother. How is she?
Dr. Cortez: Your daughter's doing just fine.
Erica: And -- and the baby?
Dr. Cortez: Well, we just did an ultrasound because Bianca was leaking amniotic fluid.
Erica: Doctor, just tell me, is -- is Bianca going to lose the baby?
Dr. Cortez: Ms. Kane, your daughter's baby is doing quite well. The ultrasound revealed a small tear in the amniotic sac, which has resealed spontaneously. The fluid tested negative for infection, so things are looking good.
Krystal: Don't you just love it when life works out?
Jack: Great, great. So when will we be able to take her home?
Dr. Cortez: Well, I'd like to keep her on the fetal monitor overnight --
Dr. Cortez: Keep her stress levels down. But, barring any further complications, Bianca should go to term and give birth to a healthy baby.
Jack: Oh, Doctor, thank you very much. We appreciate it.
Erica: My God. Couldn't you show her some mercy, just once?
Aidan: You have risked way too much to just give up the fight now.
Kendall: Maybe you don't want to give up, Aidan, but I do. I'm tired.
Aidan: Well, if you're tired, just lean on me.
Kendall: No, I can't. I can't put you and everyone else through this same circle of hell, ok? The prosecution has offered me a deal, and Livia advised me to take it.
Aidan: You wouldn't have to deal if it wasn't for me blowing your alibi to pieces.
Kendall: What are you talking about? What, you mean Fred Lomax? No, Aidan, I don't blame you for -- I blame Greenlee and Mia for that.
Aidan: But still, I was the one that brought him to town. All right? I messed up. I screwed up, and I'm really sorry.
Kendall: No, Aidan, no. You're my champion, you're my rock. The only thing that you're guilty of is -- is being too good to me.
Aidan: See? Talking about guilty -- you are not. You have done nothing wrong.
Kendall: Yeah, well, right or wrong, I did what I had to do. And I know what I have to do now.
Aidan: And I'm not going to like it, am I?
Kendall: You don't have to like it. Just accept it. I've made up my mind. I'm going to take the plea bargain -- 10 years at Statesville.
Tommy: Ryan, long time.
Ryan: Double scotch, Tommy.
Tommy: Oh, yeah? You still saving women from their sorry selves?
Ryan: No, no tears in the beer tonight, all right, man?
Tommy: Yeah. I hear that.
Mary: Ryan? I was hoping I'd find you here.
Ryan: Back off, Mary.
Mary: I was wondering if you'd seen Greenlee.
Ryan: Not my turn to watch her.
Mary: I know you two are close. You must be worried.
Ryan: You know what? Greenlee can fall off the face of the earth for all I care.
Greenlee: Someone! Please, help me. No one's out. God, who would be crazy to be out in this weather? Me, that's who. Someone will come. Someone will realize that I'm missing, and they'll come and they'll find me and they'll save me.
Ryan: Hey! Greenlee!
Ryan: Looks like somebody fell down a rabbit hole!
Greenlee: Ryan. Ryan, thank God you found me. I thought you'd given up on me for good.
Ryan: Would I do that? I promised that I would be your secret weapon. I will always show up for you.
Kendall: Ryan, help! I need you!
Ryan: Greenlee, somebody else needs help.
Greenlee: No! No, no, no, Ryan, don't go. I'm the one who's trapped.
Kendall: Ryan, hurry! I need you!
Greenlee: That's Kendall!
Ryan: I got to go!
Greenlee: No, Ryan, don't go! Ryan, no! Come back here! Ryan! Ryan, please, come get me.
Aidan: Kendall, copping the plea is the wrong move.
Kendall: In your opinion, not mine.
Aidan: This is because of Lavery, isn't it? He's gotten to you, and he's made you feel that this is hopeless, hasn't he?
Kendall: No, no! This has nothing to do with Ryan.
Aidan: Oh, come on.
Kendall: Aidan, no, this is me waking up. I have had enough face time with the jury to know that they're going to give me the thumbs-down. And the prosecutor -- they're not even done with me yet.
Aidan: Well, Livia hasn't exhausted all your options yet.
Kendall: No, Livia is pressing me to cut a deal! Greenlee exposed me as a liar and a fraud. I've already done time for perjury. I've got guilt written all over me! The entire world thinks I murdered Michael.
Aidan: Yeah, well, I don't. I don't believe it, Kendall. I'm sorry.
Kendall: It doesn't matter what you think! It's what the jury thinks! Aidan, they can zap me with the death penalty, and I'm not ready to walk that last mile!
Aidan: Well, I'm not ready to -- Kendall, I'm not ready to watch you condemn yourself to 10 years behind bars. I'm not.
Kendall: I can take prison. I can -- I will be fine. I've done prison before. I'll be fine. I -- I'm strong and I can survive it, ok?
Aidan: You're talking crazy.
Kendall: No, listen, I'm young, and when I get out, I'll start a whole new life and I'll be fine. And it's the only hope and the only choice that I have, Aidan. And as scary as it is, I have to accept it. Because when I think about being stretched out on a gurney and having them stick a needle in me, I can't think about that, Aidan!
Aidan: I won't -- I won't -- I won't let them. I won't let them, Kendall.
Kendall: I can't!
Aidan: I won't let anything bad happen to you, ever.
Aidan: Shh. I won't let anything bad happen to you.
Kendall: God, you -- oh, just never stop, do you, hmm?
Aidan: It's not in my job description.
Kendall: Aidan, it's not your job to save me.
Aidan: Look, what I do is up to me. By taking this deal, you are letting the real killer go free. The police are going to stamp the Cambias case closed. Everyone is going to get their life back. Everyone but you.
Kendall: You are the best of the best, you know that?
Kendall: Oh, God. That's probably Livia calling with more bad news.
Aidan: Don't answer it.
Kendall: No, I've got to answer it. Hello? What? Oh, my God!
Mary: Really, Ryan, your lack of concern for my daughter is cruel, not to mention incomprehensible. How can you feel this way after what she's done for you in court?
Ryan: Save it, Mary, because you know what, I'm not really listening.
Mary: Thanks to my little girl, you're back in line to inherit the Cambias fortune. You should be showering us with champagne.
Ryan: Yeah, find someone else to pick up your tab, Mary.
Mary: I'm personally mystified by what my daughter sees in you, but to return her loyalty with these insults --
Ryan: This has nothing to do with me. Greenlee went all out to stab Kendall in the back.
Mary: This has nothing to do with Kendall or Fusion or that silly trial. She did what she did for you and only you.
Greenlee: Ryan's so righteous. He makes me laugh. I've got a one-way ticket to Paris, and when I get out of here, I'm going to leave all these hypocrites in my jet trail. Paris -- I should've stayed there after my sweet Leo died. But I fooled myself into thinking that there are people here that really give a damn about me. But it's all a fake-out. Help! Somebody! I don't deserve this! Damn it, somebody, please! Am I the punch line of some cosmic joke? I finally decide to ditch PV, and I'm buried alive. So close to Leo. No. No, no, this is not the end. I'm not the only one who comes out here and talks to Leo. David comes here all the time, no matter how freezing it is. David? David! Drop whatever it is you're doing and come talk to Leo! David, it's an emergency! Please! David!
David: You heard Dr. Cortez. Your baby's fine and will not be celebrating her birthday until her due date.
Bianca: She's strong, isn't she, David?
David: Absolutely, just like her mother.
Bianca: No, I was scared to death.
David: Well, that's understandable. Just the thought of losing a child will --
Bianca: Oh, David, I'm so sorry. I wasn't even thinking about Leora. It's been almost a year since she died.
David: Yeah. I'm just happy that you and your baby came through this in fighting form.
Bianca: Thank you, David.
Bianca: Thank you for everything.
David: Don't even mention it. I'll stop by later and I'll check on you, ok? Get some rest.
Bianca: Ok. What is it?
David: Remember what I said about avoiding stress? Erica's here. I can tell her you're resting.
Bianca: No, I want to see her.
David: I will not have you getting upset.
Bianca: No, David, don't you understand? If Mom's here, it's because she's worried about the baby. And that means there's hope for all of us.
Jack: Here you go, sweetheart. Thought maybe you could use some tea.
Erica: Oh, not now. I have to fill out these insurance forms.
Krystal: Boy, she is walking a tightrope that's about to snap.
Babe: Well, what did Erica mean, that Bianca would be better off if she lost her baby?
David: Erica, hey. I guess you heard the good news?
Jack: Yeah, yeah, what a relief. Thank you for calling.
David: Oh, sure, no problem.
Erica: David, I don't know this Dr. Cortez, so if you can manage to be honest with me about my daughter, how is Bianca really?
David: Erica, Bianca's fine. And so is the baby. Now, I -- I know I didn't call you right away when she came in, but --
Erica: Has she asked for me?
David: Yeah, yeah, she has. She'd like to see you. But try not to stay too long, all right? She needs her rest.
Jack: Well, I'll tell you what -- why don't I wait out here with your tea, and you can spend a little time alone with Bianca?
Erica: No, no, no, don't -- don't concern yourself about me, Jack. Please, just give Bianca all my love.
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa -- you're not going to go in and see your daughter?
Erica: No. No, Jack, I'm not.
Krystal: Well, never a dull moment in this town. I think I'll go home and write it all down in my diary.
J.R.: Yeah, thank you for going through with the paternity test, Babe.
Babe: J.R., let's forget about tests and icky hospitals and let's go dancing.
J.R.: Actually, I've got to hit the office. I've got a board meeting tomorrow. I'll see you at home?
Krystal: Chin up, baby doll. You ace this papa test, and J.R. is yours to keep.
Babe: I know that, Mama. And that's why I'm heading straight for Llanview.
Krystal: Time for a showdown with Paul Cramer?
Babe: Either Paul fixes this paternity test, or he's going to spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulder.
Krystal: Well, you know what you want. You just go get it.
Krystal: Give him hell, honey.
Ryan: So what you're saying is that Greenlee trashed Kendall as an early Valentine present to me.
Mary: Yes, it's true. I know you don't believe it, but it made Greenlee sick to see you being taken in by her.
Ryan: Watch it, Mary.
Mary: Ryan, she opened your eyes, and she only did it because she cares about you.
Ryan: So nuking Kendall was nothing personal? It was all about protecting me?
Mary: Right. So as long as you're handing out blame, save some for yourself because you're as responsible for Kendall's ruination as anybody else was. Enjoy your drink. Hope you choke on it.
Greenlee: It's getting late. Looks like I'll have to bunk in this pit. Not exactly a four-star suite. No feather bed, no room service, no mini bar. Oh, what I wouldn't give for a split of champagne and a jar of macadamias. Help! Somebody get me out of this hellhole! Oh, give it up, Greenlee. They all hate you. No one would lift a pinkie to help you. So just face it, nobody's coming. Nobody cares. Everyone's so wrapped up in their own problems, they probably didn't even notice you're gone.
David: Your pulse is strong and steady.
Bianca: I feel 100% better.
Bianca: But what happened to Mom?
David: I have no idea.
Jack: What the hell is going on with you?
Erica: I'm going back to my office.
Jack: You insisted on coming here with me. Bianca's waiting for you, and now you're -- you're walking out on her?
Erica: I'm not walking out on her.
Jack: Well, what would you call it?
Erica: Well, you heard what David said. Bianca needs to avoid stress, and my presence would upset her.
Jack: Bianca asked to see you.
Erica: I'm doing what's best for my daughter. Now please just tell Bianca I'll call her.
Jack: Tell her you'll call -- wait, wait, wait, wait. Now wait. Your daughter just had maybe the scare of her lifetime. She needs you in there now.
Erica: No, she doesn't need me. Not according to David. Bianca is fine, the baby is fine. I am not needed.
Jack: If she had lost that baby, you'd be in there, though, wouldn't you? Sitting right by her side, holding her hand, telling her that everything's going to be ok. But since she's still pregnant, you're turning your back on her.
Erica: You really need to stop pretending that you understand my motives. I may be many things that you disapprove of, Jack, but one thing I'm not and that's a hypocrite. I have the courage to speak what's in my heart. Now, you and I both know that it would've been a blessing for everyone had Bianca lost that baby.
Kendall: Oh, my God.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Kendall: Mother, please. We have to finish what Greenlee started.
Greenlee: Ryan's ring. Ryan? Ryan, I'm down here!
