All My Children Transcript Tuesday 3/23/04
Proofread by Gisele
Joe: The father of Babe's child is J.R.
Bianca: My baby's father is a rapist and I killed him.
Erica: Oh, my God, what? Where is Bianca?
Babe: Just one more push, come on!
Bianca: Please don't make me do it again!
Babe: She's here!
J.R.: My wife and my baby are going to be fine. I know it.
Babe: Thank God you're here, Paul! The baby's coming! You got to help, Paul!
Paul: Good news, Kelly -- I got a baby for you.
J.R.: Babe? Babe!
Ryan: Bianca, can you hear me?
Tad: All right. We all know you're ugly. Let's see how deep.
J.R.: Babe? We need more manpower to cover the area!
Ryan: Add some floodlights to the list because this is not going to cut it.
Tad: Over here! There's something down here!
Krystal: David, I'm warning you, I'm a woman on the edge, so don't mess with me. Either you know where Babe and Bianca are or you don't.
Erica: Did David find them?
David: No, no, no, listen to me -- look, I'm sorry. We haven't found them yet, but somebody busted into my cabin and tried to call you today.
Krystal: Somebody got cut off here about an hour ago.
David: That's right, that's right, which means that Bianca and Babe must have gotten out of the car before it was swept away. Krystal, listen to me, have Adam send up as many people up here as he can, ok? Now, the sun's already down, so we're running out of time.
Krystal: David, do you think --
David: Yes, I do. Krystal, hurry. Adam's calling out the troops.
Kendall: David, I want to believe so badly that she's ok. And I swear I heard a helicopter, I did, so maybe the troops are on their way.
Babe: Bianca, wake up.
Babe: You've got to see my gorgeous little baby.
Babe: It's ok. Don't you worry about your precious, either. Everything's going to be just fine. Paul's out there calling the hospital right now. You and Miranda are going to be just fine.
Paul: Kelly, where are you? As far as you're concerned, your water just broke and you're in labor. Once you hand Kevin his very own Baby Buchanan, nobody will ever be able to break you two up. Kelly, shake it off. It's now or never, before somebody busts in and wrecks this for the both of us.
Ryan: Help me out here, Tad. I don't know whether to beat you senseless or give you a kiss for hooking that tarp.
Tad: Don't kid yourself. I'm just as relieved as you are. Are you all right?
J.R.: I will be as soon as we find them.
Ryan: We just have so much ground to cover and there's little visibility. The bitch of it is that we don't know what we're missing in the dark.
J.R.: Damn it!
Tad: J.R., take it easy. Look, both Babe and Bianca are smart. They're resourceful. Have faith. Don't give up.
J.R.: I'm not.
Ryan: We need more manpower.
J.R.: Then I'll buy some more! For God's sake, what the hell good is Chandler money if I can't save the people's lives?
Kendall: Hey, J.R., listen, it's Kendall. I'm over at David�s cabin. Somebody tried to break in.
J.R.: Why would I give a damn?
Kendall: Because whoever broke in tried to call your house, and David thinks it might have been Babe.
J.R.: She called home?
Kendall: Yes, yes. So if she was here, then we're that much closer to finding her, so just get here as soon as you can.
J.R.: She was there. She was there. Thank you, God. Let's go. Come on.
Kendall: Ok, they're on their way.
Kendall: Now, Bianca�s purse and Babe's backpack were still in the car, so they don't have ID with them. So if Babe was here --
David: Then she got out of the car in time, ok, which means there's a good chance --
Kendall: Yes, which means that Bianca could be ok, too, right now, if Bianca was here, then why would they leave?
David: All right, at this moment, why is not really the question, just where. We need to find them.
Kendall: Well, maybe Babe came alone to call for help and maybe Bianca -- maybe she's in trouble or trapped and Babe has to get back to her.
David: Kendall, let's try not to get ahead of ourselves, ok?
Kendall: No, David, my sister could be in pain out there.
David: You know something, it's not helping jumping to conclusions. Let's just stay with rational thought.
Kendall: No, you know, rational thought doesn't work for me, ok? I say do what works for you. That doesn't work for me.
David: Wait a minute, where are you going?
Kendall: No, my sister needs me, David!
David: All right, well, stay here, ok? Stay calm and help me plan out our next move.
David: Just relax, ok? Just hold on for a minute. Hello. Yes, Jack. Yeah, yeah, it's only a hunch, but it's all we've got right now. J.R. is his way up. Ok, great, I'll see you when you get here. Damn it! Kendall!
Krystal: Hayward says my baby girl wasn't caught in that flood. Now, half the town calls him a liar and the other half calls him a snake, but he dotes on Bianca. He wouldn't be jerking us around, would he?
Adam: Not if he cares to see tomorrow's sunrise.
Erica: No, David wouldn't lie about something like that, no. No, our girls are out there. They need our help.
Adam: We'll find them.
Krystal: Where you going?
Adam: To exert some Chandler muscle, to encourage several dozen more volunteers.
Erica: Well, sign us up, put us on that list because we can go through the woods as well as anyone.
Krystal: If it means finding my baby, listen, I will flap my arms and fly.
Adam: Ladies, you can' go out there. It too dangerous. Besides, we need you here.
Krystal: Why, for what, to wait by the phone and chew my fingernails down to the wrist?
Erica: Yeah, this is not your call, Adam.
Adam: What if they find their way back here and you two are stranded in the woods? Do we have Winifred tell them, "Your mothers send their best regards"? Ladies, please. Now, if you'll excuse me.
Krystal: She made it. They made it. Now, where the hell are they? I'm sorry. I got a manic thing going on. I can't decide whether to rip out my hair or bake brownies. Babe likes her sweets after a rough time. I'd say this qualifies. But Babe's a survivor, and Bianca, she's got the goods, too. I just -- got a feeling, you know? It's deep down. It's like a fire, you know, just like a tingling. You got any tingles going on, Erica? I mean, Ms. Kane.
Erica: Oh, no, please call me Erica.
Krystal: Thanks, Erica. So what's your mother's intuition whispering? Because I could use some backup.
Erica: Oh. It is a lot to take in. No news for so long, and then suddenly, a chance, a glimmer.
Krystal: Right, so do we take that as a sign to lighten up or is that just flirting with disaster? See, zero to crazy in less than 10 seconds.
Erica: No, they -- they have to be all right. They just have to be.
Krystal: Amen. And those babies have to be a-ok, too.
Babe: Paul, what are those things?
Paul: Portable incubators. I told you, it's standard operating procedure.
Babe: But, Paul, you can't operate. You're a pilot.
Paul: Babe, nobody's operating. You're exhausted and you need rest, and these will keep the babies warm and safe while they fly.
Babe: But that's what I'm for, huh? I'll hold my baby. And Miranda, too. Bianca would want it that way.
Paul: Bianca would want her baby to be as safe as possible.
Babe: Well, so do I. I mean, I am a mama.
Paul: All right, then you will let me put the babies in there, ok?
Babe: But I've never been away from my little dreamboat.
Babe: Oh, honey. Oh, I'll miss him so much. Don't you worry, my precious little boy. Mama's going to fly high in the sky with you, straight home to Daddy. Mamas aren't supposed to be away from their babies. It just isn't natural.
Kendall: Bianca? Bianca! Babe! God, you guys, where you are? Please give me something, give me something. Give me -- give me a bread crumb! Anything! A big neon sign! Please, anything! Bianca, where are you? Bianca!
Greenlee: Watch out, Kendall! Stop. Stop. Don't move. Just stay still for a second.
Kendall: Why? So you can push me into the falls? You already tried to exterminate me in court. Do you know when to stop, Greenlee?
Greenlee: No, I do. That's why I don't want to argue with you right now. I just want you to walk away in that direction.
Kendall: Are you trying to send me out into the brush so that you'll find the girls first?
Greenlee: You know, I am part of Bianca�s family. This is killing me, too. I just thought you ought to know that there's a hole in the ground that you might not want to fall through.
Kendall: Oh, my God.
Greenlee: Flowers are a nice way to say thank you, or a nice, embossed card.
Kendall: How did you know?
Greenlee: That was home dank home for a few days that felt like a few years. That's why I came up here. I wanted to make sure it didn't happen to Babe or Bianca.
David: All right, look, I'm pretty damn sure that Babe was here and left for whatever reason, most likely on foot, so I believe that if we just spread out, we should be able to find them.
J.R.: You said my dad was on his way?
David: Yeah, yeah, he's going to round up as many people as he can.
Tad: We're supposed to meet them here?
David: Yeah, but we really shouldn't wait for them.
Maggie: Look, David, there's no need to protect me, so whatever it is, why don't you just say it?
David: Look, there's a real possibility that Bianca couldn't travel, which is why Babe didn't stay here. That's why we have to move fast.
Maggie: You really think that Bianca�s out there somewhere?
David: Yes, I do. Listen, everybody, it's really difficult to pinpoint landmarks out there in the dark, so it's really important to stay together as pairs, ok? Find any clue, any sign, any indication of which direction Babe may have gone in. Then we can focus all of our manpower in that particular region.
Jamie: It would be faster if we split up. We have cell phones. I mean, we need walkie-talkies?
Tad: Oh, no, you don�t. He's absolutely right. You either go with somebody or you stay here. There's enough freaked-out parents around as it is.
Jamie: Dad, I'm going to be fine.
Tad: That's just it -- I wouldn't be, so humor me, ok?
David: All right, everybody, call back here if you find anything or if there's a problem. I'm going to stay back here and coordinate with Adam�s men. Oh, one more thing -- Kendall ran out of here on her own. If you see her, do not let her out of your sight. I want you to know something, Ryan. If this weren't so damn important, I wouldn't have let you through that door.
Ryan: Oh, that's just beautiful, Hayward. Two pregnant women are missing, possibly even hurt, and you want to waste time with your tough-guy act.
David: Hey, if it were up to me, you wouldn't be anywhere near those girls.
Ryan: This like your new thing, like, playing champion for the women of Pine Valley?
David: Well, that's an interesting perspective, Ryan, especially coming from the one person who has something to gain from Bianca�s disappearance.
Ryan: What? What the hell did you just say?
David: You heard what I said. And listen to this -- stop messing with Greenlee�s head. Kendall was lucky enough to get away from you. You want to torture someone else, do it in another town -- hell, another continent. Just leave Greenlee alone.
Ryan: You have no idea what you're letting yourself in for here, Hayward.
David: Oh, please. Don't look now, Ryan, but this hero routine is wearing thin. The real you is shining through.
Ryan: You know what? You're wasting my time.
Erica: Adam, please hurry. Go find our girls.
Erica: Adam? Adam, if you find Bian-- when you find Bianca, please tell her that I will be there the second that I get the call. And please tell her that I love her. Please be sure that she knows that.
Adam: Yes, I will. I will, I'll tell her. I'll tell them both.
Krystal: Oh, he is a tough son of a gun. And for once, I'm grateful.
Erica: Yeah, me, too.
Krystal: Well, this moment just screams for a shot of tequila. Don't suppose he has any of that around, huh? Probably just brandy or port, nothing with a worm in the bottom. What if -- what if they call and I'm two sheets? No, no, I can't risk that. What about you, Erica? You need a nip? I could watch and pretend.
Babe: Miranda. No, wait, Paul, Miranda doesn't need to go in there. She's not a preemie like mine.
Paul: Babe, we're going up in a helicopter. Precious cargo needs extra care. Just relax.
Babe: You know what? Just don't even listen to me. You have been so good to us so far, so smart.
Paul: Well, that's what I do. I help people get what they need.
Babe: Hmm, just like you helped my baby get born. It's a miracle, huh, just to think that my little baby was here in my belly not long ago, and now he's over there, his own little precious person. It really is amazing, huh? Oh, when I saw my baby's face, it was like -- like getting a glimpse into heaven. You did that for me. You delivered my baby, and now I owe you the world.
Paul: You did the hard part. The rest is easy.
Babe: Is Bianca ok? She's really kind of quiet.
Paul: Well, she has lost a lot of blood. We need to get her to PVH.
Babe: Oh, Paul, you got to really take care of her. I mean, Miranda needs her mommy.
Paul: Well, every baby needs a good mom.
Babe: Oh, but Miranda, she's special. See, Bianca was raped. And her own mom won't even accept the baby. Miranda really needs Bianca, so you just got to make sure --
Paul: Shh. Babe, you need to rest. You've gone through a lot.
Babe: Wait, what are you doing? What are you giving me?
Kendall: There's no way that you spent one single second in that hole. And you don't give a damn about Bianca or Babe Chandler, either.
Greenlee: You think I'm out here for the fun of it?
Kendall: Well, you're not here out of fear. You're not here because you're worried about losing the one person who loves you more than anything else on this earth, the one person who would do anything for you.
Greenlee: You know, I know I'm not as close as you and Bianca, but things are different now. She could be my sister, too -- not like you two, but I care.
Kendall: Fine, then go home and wait for her. Take your boyfriend with you.
Greenlee: You really think Ryan and I --
Kendall: Well, your nonchalance is very nice. It's too bad I don't give a damn.
Greenlee: Ryan and I are on a completely different level.
Kendall: God, could you sound more pretentious? That level is called sex. Sex. It's called sex. It's not like you invented it.
Greenlee: You know that hole that you thought I wasn't in? That was my prison cell for quite some time. Ryan pulled me out of it. He saved me. That's it. We're not a couple.
Kendall: Why are you still talking?
Greenlee: You don't want to talk to me? I don't blame you. Go ask Ryan. But if you're going to talk to him, just be ready to listen.
Ryan: What's going on?
Greenlee: I checked the mineshaft. No sign of them here. Small mercies, I guess. I'll go check over there.
Erica: No, nothing to drink. You're right, Krystal. We have to be lucid for our girls.
Krystal: Yeah. Just as well. Alcohol's a depressant, and my mascara's not waterproof. But that's just crazy talk. I mean, I was just handed a big bag full of hope, and I plan to run with it. I mean, you're a glass-half-full kind of gal, aren't you, Erica? Or am I talking too much and you want me to shut the hell up?
Erica: No, please don't stop. I mean, every now and then, it drowns out the voice in my own head.
Krystal: And what's that voice saying?
Erica: All sorts of things, none of them very pretty.
Krystal: Well, then, you just tell that voice to shut up and listen to this -- everything is going to work out fine. Our babies are going to come home, and all's going to be right with the world.
Erica: I'm afraid I'm in a different situation altogether.
Krystal: Oh, I'm not so sure about that.
Erica: You're sweet, Krystal, but you're also mistaken.
Krystal: I like that. Even when you're telling me I'm dead wrong, you do it with style. God skipped over me when he was passing out panache, so I'll just give it to you straight -- I'm not wrong. We're in the exact same boat. We're both mamas who love our girls more than life itself.
Erica: Well, I think we're past pretense. I mean, you heard what Kendall said to me.
Krystal: I did. And I also know that when it comes to a mother and a child, nobody knows the whole truth.
Erica: I'm just afraid there's not much room for misinterpretation. According to Kendall, I killed Bianca before she ever even ran out. I chased her out into that storm with the hateful words that I said to her. If she's not all right �
Maggie: Bianca? What are we doing? We were here before. We're running around in circles!
Jamie: I don't know. Just everything looks the same.
J.R.: Babe! I heard voices. I thought --
Jamie: J.R., I --
J.R.: She needs me. She needs me and I can't find her.
Jamie: J.R., I didn't see it before. I made myself think that you really didn't love her.
J.R.: Now you know. I love her. That doesn't do me any good, though, does it? That doesn't get me any closer to finding her.
Jamie: J.R., I am so sorry. The things I said, the stuff I did -- you know, I wouldn't forgive me, so I don't expect you to. But I promise you I'm going to do whatever it takes to make things right.
Tad: Good. You can start right now by helping your brother find his wife.
Paul: Babe, you just gave birth in a cabin. It's not exactly sanitary. This will help.
Babe: Help how?
Paul: You want to be healthy for your baby, don't you?
Babe: Hey, Paul, the DNA results on my baby -- you never told me -- did you change them or is J.R. really the daddy? Or was it Jamie?
Paul: You wanted it to be J.R., so it's J.R.
Babe: Paul, I feel kind of funny. I think that -- I think that maybe the medicine wasn't any good.
Paul: You're dehydrated and exhausted. Rest a while.
Babe: Ok. Hey. Don't you worry, babies. We're going home. Home to Daddy. Won't Daddy be so proud?
Paul: Put your arms around me if you can.
Babe: The baby. Babies should be with their mommies, though. Whoa.
Paul: That's it. Just sleep. Come on, Miranda. You sit tight, Baby Chandler. Uncle Paul�s got to go for a while, but your new mommy's on her way.
Dispatcher: Cramer, do you read me? Radio dispatch with your location ASAP.
Dispatcher: Come in, Cramer. Repeat --
Babe: Where's my baby?
Paul: Babe, no, no, no --
Babe: What happened?
Paul: It was terrible, Babe! I'm sorry! Listen, there was -- there was a malfunction, ok? I tried everything I could! I think it was the engine, though! I --
Babe: That's ok. Just tell me where my baby is.
Paul: No, no, no, listen to me, listen to me, the helicopter went down, all right? Your baby's incubator was thrown out in the crash!
Babe: Just -- I'll get it. Just tell me where it is.
Paul: No, no, no, Babe! Listen to me! Look at me, ok? Your baby's incubator went in the river, all right? I'm sorry! Your baby's gone!
Babe: My baby.
Krystal: Erica, I don't know you too well, and if you don't count the tabloids, I don't know you at all, but I do know that the wonderful baby you give life to can also make you madder than just about anybody else on this earth.
Erica: A lot of people would say that that's just wrong.
Krystal: Well, then they don't understand or respect the wonderful, convoluted, and complicated thing called mother love.
Erica: But you must judge me. I mean, that's what people do. They silently pass judgment on other people. It's human nature.
Krystal: Well, I must not be human because I won't judge another mother, and if another mother judges me, she can just pucker up and kiss mine.
Erica: I don't think many people are like you, Krystal. I don't think anybody else is like you.
Krystal: You know why we say things to our kids that we'd never say to another soul? Because once a baby is inside of you, they're always a part of you. And we say to them the same words we say to ourselves. Sometimes hard and sometimes hateful. I know what it's like to wish you could take those words back, to take all the hurt away.
Erica: Oh. Doesn't Bianca know I would -- I would die before I'd ever, ever intentionally hurt her.
Krystal: She knows that. In her heart, she knows that.
Erica: If I really thought -- I just don't think I could go on living if I really thought that those were the last words that I said to my little girl.
Ryan: Have you found anything yet?
Kendall: No, no. What? What?
Ryan: It just makes me crazy, you know, like not getting anywhere.
Kendall: Greenlee says you two aren't a couple.
Ryan: So, what, are you waiting for me to, like, confirm or deny this?
Kendall: Greenlee said it.
Ryan: But you don't believe it.
Kendall: Well, it's hard to know what to believe.
Ryan: Yeah, for you it's hard. Kendall, now, listen, I am going to keep looking, all right? You should go back to the cabin.
Kendall: No, no, I have to keep looking. I have to --
Ryan: David doesn't want you running around here all by yourself, all right? Now, we're wasting time.
Kendall: No, Ryan -- please, Ryan, please just wait a minute.
Babe: My baby! Oh, God, my baby!
Paul: No, Babe, Babe, listen to me! Listen to me, Babe, I will go and look for him, ok? I will go and look. You just rest easy here, all right? Everything's going to be ok.
Babe: Please -- please just find my baby! Please just find my baby!
Paul: I will. It's ok. It's ok. It's ok. It's all right. God.
Kendall: Do you even think they're still alive?
Ryan: Well, I wouldn't be running around in the woods if I didn�t.
Kendall: David says that I have to keep using rational thought, but I -- this just feels like blind faith.
Ryan: Well, blind faith has its points, Kendall, and this time we have something real to back it up.
Kendall: So, what, so we just hold on to that?
Ryan: Yeah, with everything we got.
Kendall: I can't stand this. I can't keep doing this. What if this never ends?
Ryan: You're stuck, Kendall, you're stuck in this one moment, but this one moment will end, all right? They always do, just not always the way you expect them to.
Kendall: Stop, stop, Ryan, you're scaring me.
Ryan: Oh, Kendall, just look forward, please? Just look forward for once in your life. Think about when we find them, when we find Bianca, and she sees you and you can tell her that she's ok and that her baby's going to be ok, all right? So just climb out of this moment and move the hell along. Things change.
Kendall: Whether we want them to or not.
Ryan: You know what, sometimes they get better. Sometimes you find yourself back in a place that you never thought that you would be in again. I mean, look at me. I'm back here. I'm back here. I never thought I would be again, and what the hell does that mean?
Greenlee: You guys -- guys, did you see that?
Adam: How are you, son?
J.R.: She was here and now she's not. That's how I am.
Tad: We came back to be reassigned new places to look. We haven't found anything.
David: All right, well, at least we're ruling out a lot of turf by elimination, and we should also start moving faster. Adam brought in some more men.
Adam: I'll bring in an army if that's what it takes.
Tad: Ok, so we know where we've been. Where the hell haven't we looked?
Jack: Well, if you figure that out, you call me. I'm going to join up with that bunch down south.
Adam: J.R., where -- where are you going?
Paul: Hey, little guy. You didn't think I forgot about you, did you? Hmm? You're doing good, little man. You're as strong as your -- hey, listen, you're one lucky kid. Your new mama's on her way here, and she is really excited to see you. It'll almost be over.
Maggie: You think?
Jamie: Let's get in there.
Maggie: Jamie, how did you know about this place?
Jamie: I didn�t. Maybe God decided to cut us a break.
Paul: Walk away, damn it. Nobody's home.
Jamie: Well, someone's been here. Look at the ground. The mud's all churned up.
Maggie: It's open. Bianca?
Maggie: There's no one here.
Jamie: What the hell! Where are they?
Maggie: I don't know, you know, let's just go back to David�s.
Jamie: They cannot spend another night alone. We're going to find them.
Maggie: All right. Oh, my God, Jamie. This is Bianca�s sweater.
Jamie: That means they're close, ok? We're going to find them. Come on.
Paul: You did great. Nice and quiet. You must know that Kelly�s meant to be your mom. If she ever gets here.
Krystal: Anything other than "Yes, you may" is hateful to a kid.
Erica: You're being kind, but I know what I said, and I know what I saw. The look in Bianca�s eyes --
Krystal: Erica, you know the way Babe is put together? 100% va-va-voom? She's been that way since she was 12. Yeah, I know, lucky me, right? Well, since she looks like a woman, she gets it into her head that she can play like one. She wants to go club-hopping and kicking back with the big kids, and when I say, "Hell, no," she picks up the phone and dials 1-800-MOMMY-BEATS-ME, you know, to turn me in for the abusive monster that I am -- only she doesn't say monster, though.
Erica: This sounds almost familiar. Did she go through with it?
Krystal: No. No, after three days of howling, she realizes that I love her. Saying no is just as much a part of a mother's love as saying yes.
Erica: More sometimes. But maybe I took it too far. Maybe this time there's no coming back.
J.R.: God? Please help them. If someone has to pay, take me.
Greenlee: There was a helicopter!
Kendall: I thought I heard one earlier. Are you sure?
Greenlee: Yes, it was big as life -- or bigger, really. I had my binoculars.
Ryan: Well, wait, we don't even have a clear view of the sky from here, Greenlee. Are you sure?
Greenlee: I know, but from the other side of the rocks, it's a different story.
Kendall: Wait, where was it? Where did it go?
Greenlee: Up above the river, I mean, then it started to drop. It was right behind the trees.
Kendall: Maybe that could be the same one. Maybe they have the girls.
Ryan: Wait a minute, do you think you can pinpoint exactly where it went down?
Greenlee: Yes, yes, yes, up the river about two miles, around the falls.
Kendall: Ok, you're sure?
Greenlee: Yes, positive.
Ryan: That's all I need to hear. Come on.
Paul: Kelly, come on. God.
[Knock on door]
Paul: Kelly. Where have you been?
Kelly: I'm sorry, this isn't the easiest place to find.
Paul: Did you see anybody?
Kelly: No, no.
Paul: More importantly, did anybody see you?
Kelly: No. Why?
Paul: It doesn't matter now that you're here.
Kelly: Oh, my God. Is this really true?
Paul: Baby, here's your mom.
Kelly: I don't believe this. He's the most beautiful thing ever seen. Is he mine?
Paul: He's all yours.
Kelly: How? How did you do this, Paul?
