All My Children Transcript Wednesday 3/24/04
Proofread by Gisele
Maggie: Look. We found this sweater, found it in an old cabin.
Jamie: It's Bianca's.
J.R.: Any sign of Babe?
Jamie: No, but they couldn't have gotten too far on foot.
Tad: I don't understand something -- if they found shelter, why would they leave?
Ryan: Tad, J.R., get over here!
J.R.: That's Ryan.
Maggie: Maybe he found something. Go.
Erica: Did I push my daughter too far? Did I cause this?
Krystal: Hell, no. You're just trying to protect her.
Erica: Yes, that is it. That's it exactly.
Krystal: We do our best, ok? And when our best isn't good enough, then we do better next time. Honey, listen, the things I've done for my daughter -- toss your hair rollers because this stuff will curl your hair. And I'm not bragging, either, but I will not call myself a bad mother. And that goes for you, too. You love your baby. Whether you hug or holler, the love is still there.
Erica: I do love her. I just wish I could make her understand.
Krystal: Understand what?
Erica: I see the future, brutal and clear as day. And I'm sorry, I just know that I'm not wrong.
Kendall: Bianca! Bianca! Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, my God. Bianca? Bianca?
Greenlee: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Are they alive?
Kendall: I don't know, I don't know! Bianca, Bianca, can you hear me?
Kendall: Bianca, can you hear me? Can you hear me?
Greenlee: I'll call --
Ryan: Is she breathing?
Kendall: I don't know, I don't know! Bianca, Bianca, please wake up! Bianca, Bianca, please open your eyes!
Ryan: Somebody help!
Kendall: Open your eyes! Please open your eyes.
Greenlee: Check her pulse! Is she breathing?
Kendall: Open your eyes, Bianca.
Maria: Hi, cutie. Look what I brought you. Oh.
Maria: Sorry. Almost forgot the cardinal rule -- no interrupting the writer when he's writing.
Edmund: Oh, are you kidding? We live for distractions.
Edmund: Wow. Did I say "Hubba, hubba" when you walked in?
Maria: No, you didn't. You were way too involved with the other woman in your life.
Edmund: What other woman?
Maria: "What other woman?" The -- your muse.
Edmund: Oh, her.
Edmund: Yeah, I mean, she's -- she's very fickle. She comes into my life, she leaves my life, she leaves me high and dry for weeks at a time, I never see her, and sometimes she has me considering a career in Particle Physics.
Maria: Yeah, she was here just now.
Edmund: Yeah. But she didn't bring me --
Maria: Steak Diane? Well, I thought that maybe that would be a good distraction for you -- unless you want to keep on working.
Edmund: No! Steak Diane and my dumb muse can take a ticket and wait in line behind my gorgeous wife.
Maria: "Gorgeous"? Thank you, I'll take that.
Edmund: Oh, yeah, you should. That dress is -- is a wowser.
Maria: Aw, this old thing?
Edmund: Yeah, this old thing. Lady, you could wear a gunnysack and you'd be the best-looking girl in the whole world. Have I told you lately how much I love you?
Maria: Uh-uh. I was still waiting for "Hubba, hubba."
Edmund: Come here. Hubba, hubba. Maria �
Joe: Anita. How you doing? Finding your way around all right?
Anita: Oh, well, there was a wrong turn into a utility closet, but the mops were very helpful. No, but so far I'm holding my own.
Joe: I bet you are. Still, if you have any questions, anything comes up, my door is always open.
Anita: Thanks, Dr. Martin, for smoothing my transition on to the PA team.
Joe: Well, I tell you, my motives are quite selfish. Maria means a lot to us and she's been stressed to the breaking point, so having her sister here has been just a godsend.
Anita: Well, she would do the same for me.
Joe: Yes, I'm sure she would. Well, keep up the good work.
Anita: Thank you. Hey, Annie.
Annie: Hey. This just came for you.
Anita: For me? "For Anita, whose name means 'grace and honor.' Please do me the extreme honor and grace me with your beauty in room 22. You're not-so-secret admirer"?
Erica: The future I see for Bianca -- it's not a curse I wish on her. I hate the very thought of it. The emptiness that she'll feel and the pain that will never, never go away. There won't ever be frilly dresses and birthday parties. There will just be more darkness and confusion and just reminders, a reminder. And what was I supposed to do? Was I supposed to wait and watch while that reality blindsided her? Because no matter how strong Bianca thinks she is, that strength will just be bled right out of her until there's nothing left for her but torment. I know. And I tried to warn Bianca. But she and Kendall, they just refuse to see it.
Krystal: Do kids ever see it? I've bailed Babe out of more than one pile, and no amount of finger-waving will stop her from finding another mess to fall into. But we're the parents. We just got to go on protecting them. It's our job, and it's our job to take the heat when it all flies back in our faces.
Erica: Ah, and it all flies back in our faces with a vengeance.
Krystal: Yeah. No matter how big they get, it always comes back to Mama -- the good, the bad, and the so damn ugly we just got to turn away.
Erica: You really do understand, don't you?
Adam: No, I'm not paying you to make excuses! I want you to mobilize everybody with two legs and a flashlight! No, I want the whole state covered! Now, get on it, damn it!
David: All the king's horses and all the king's men.
Adam: What did you say?
Adam: No, you have something to say, say it.
David: I was just -- just thinking about another search party two years ago. We were looking for Leo. This place. This river doesn't give up its dead easily.
Adam: This is not a death watch, damn it, and I'll have your hide if you suggest otherwise!
Jack: Adam, Adam, Adam, knock it off! That kind of talk isn't helping anybody or anything, all right?
Reggie: Yeah, I just did the road a mile down and back. Nothing. This some kind of bad news I need to hear about?
David: Yes, hello. Talk to me.
Greenlee: David, David, David, we found them! A MedEvac chopper went down and they were in it. About 2 1/2 miles north of your cabin on the river. Hurry up, ok? We don't know their condition.
Ryan: Greenlee, call 911!
Ryan: Babe's still breathing!
Kendall: Ryan --
Ryan: Are you calling 911?
Kendall: Ryan -- Ryan, she's so cold, I can't -- I can't tell. I can't tell if she's alive. Ryan, can you come over, please, please?
Ryan: She's still with us.
Kendall: Oh, God. Oh, thank God. Thank God. Oh, God. Ok.
Ryan: Tad, get over here! We found them!
Greenlee: Emergency rescue's on the way!
J.R.: Oh, no! Oh, Babe. Oh, Babe. It's all right, sweetheart, you're going to be fine. We're going to get you to the hospital. You and our baby are going to be fine.
Kendall: Oh, my God.
Kendall: Oh, my God. Miranda?
Ryan: Hayward, get over here!
David: What the hell happened?
Ryan: I don't know, but by some miracle, they're both still alive.
Reggie: Who the hell was flying that thing, Bianca?
Greenlee: Bianca's going to be ok, right?
David: Well, her pulse is thready.
Reggie: Why is she so pale?
Ryan: The baby might explain that.
Jack: What? Oh, my dear God.
Reggie: It's Bianca's baby.
David: Bianca's given birth. She's pale because of blood loss.
Kendall: David, David, what about the baby?
David: Well, her color's good.
David: Her lungs are definitely clear.
Kendall: Hey. Hey, baby girl. That's some entrance you made, huh?
Tad: Easy, easy, easy.
J.R.: It's going to be ok.
Tad: Take it easy, sweetheart.
J.R.: You're going to be just fine.
Babe: My baby.
Babe: Where's my baby?
J.R.: Your baby?
Babe: My baby.
David: Babe has also given birth.
Tad: Well, there's only one baby here. So where the hell is the other one?
Krystal: You trying to tell me something, God? Well, here I am. I'm crying "Uncle." I wouldn't be asking for myself or this beautiful superstar here with me, but we're not the ones out there pregnant, in the dark. Those two sweet, loving, naive girls never hurt a soul. Not on purpose. I could start making all sorts of promises that you might not believe, but you can take this to the bank -- you help those two girls and you'll have protected two angels on this earth. Do I hear an "Amen"?
Erica: Not yet.
Babe: My baby.
Tad: We should check the chopper.
Jack: All right, angel, I'll be right back, ok? Take care of her.
David: Did emergency rescue given an ETA?
Greenlee: Just that they're on their way.
Kendall: David? David, should we do something with the baby?
David: No, no. The warmth of the incubator is the best place for her until we get her to the hospital.
Maggie: David, why isn't she awake?
David: Well, she's in shock because of blood loss.
Maggie: That can be really bad, right?
David: Not if I can help it.
Greenlee: Don't let her die, David, please?
Adam: There's no sign of the other baby.
Tad: Or the pilot.
Paul: Oh, God! Am I glad to see you guys!
J.R.: Cramer? What did you do?
Paul: No, no, I was out looking for help!
J.R.: You were the bastard that crashed the chopper with my wife onboard!
Paul: No, no, no, wait, would you just calm down, ok? The engine blew! I was lucky to get it down in one piece!
J.R.: Where's my baby? Huh? Answer me! Where's my baby?
Maria: Uh, well, we've had our appetizer. I think we can just move on to the main course.
Edmund: Yeah. Ok.
Maria: Steak Diane. Seared on the outside, rare on the inside.
Maria: You like?
Edmund: Oh, yeah. Oh, my inner carnivore is purring.
Maria: Yeah, guys are so easy.
Edmund: You heard that, huh? Yeah, just toss us a hunk of meat and scratch behind our ears, we're yours for life.
Maria: I will write that down.
Edmund: Hey, honey? Remember that bistro we went to in London?
Edmund: When I get back on my feet, let's -- I want to take us there again, ok? And that bicycle tour? Remember the one that we always talked about going to in Ireland? Let's do that. Come on, Maria. What do you say? Dream with me?
Bobby: Does madam have a reservation?
Anita: I think this is supposed to get me in?
Bobby: Hmm. Allow me. Table for two with a window view of the city lights?
Anita: So, you're my not-so-secret admirer?
Bobby: Only since, well, forever. Disappointed?
Anita: Well, I was hoping Johnny Depp got my fan letter and couldn't wait to sweep me off my feet.
Bobby: Oh, well, Captain Jack Sparrow at your service. Let the sweeping begin. Arg.
Anita: That act should walk the plank. Bobby, how did you do all of this?
Bobby: Well, a pirate never reveals his secrets.
Anita: That's magicians.
Bobby: Ok, ok, I slipped a couple of 20s around.
Anita: Oh, no, I can't. I'm on call.
Bobby: It's ok, it's ok. This is sparkling cider. To a lifetime of romantic nights like this?
Krystal: Well, Lord, I'm turning it over to you. Please, please keep our girls and their babies safe from harm. Bring them home as quick as you can. I think somebody wants to add a PS.
Erica: Sometimes we say things to the people we love that we later regret. We have no way of knowing that it might be the last time, that we might never see them again. Please, God, don't let it be too late. Please, God, let me hold my daughter and tell her how much I love her. Please let me have the chance to tell Bianca how sorry I am. Please, God. Please bring my baby home to me.
Krystal: Amen, hon. If the good Lord didn't hear that, then he just plain wasn't listening.
Paul: Look, you know, I just need a glass of water.
Adam: Talk now, water later.
Paul: God, I think I hit my head.
J.R.: I'll hit you in the head, Cramer! Give it up!
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Tad: Take it easy.
Jamie: How the hell did this happen?
Paul: Look, I told you, the engine failed. The radio's shot!
Jamie: I'm talking about you being the one to MedEvac Babe!
Paul: It's my job!
Jamie: Back at the hospital, I told you she was in trouble. I begged you for your help, but you blew me off!
Paul: Well, you know, I had a second thought, ok?
J.R.: No! Not ok! You almost killed my wife and her friend!
Paul: Look, you know, like I meant for this to happen, all right? I mean, God, you try and do the right thing and --
Adam: Damn it, start talking!
Paul: Look, I hauled it up here! I delivered Babe's kid! I was trying to get them back down to the hospital when the engine failed! I got a crippled chopper back down on the ground without getting all of us killed! That, and now I got to deal with you guys! I mean, what's your problem?
J.R.: The problem is we have two women who have given birth and we only have one baby!
Jamie: What did you do to Babe's baby?
J.R.: If I don't have my baby alive in my arms in five minutes, I swear to God I will rip your head off and shove it down your neck!
Jack: All right, all right.
Adam: J.R., J.R. -- I'm not quite so merciful. Son, if I find out you had anything to do with the death of my grandchild, you're going to regret the day you were born. Are you understanding me? I will follow you to the ends of the earth and destroy you and everything you ever held sacred.
J.R.: Where's my baby?
Paul: That's your kid. That's yours and Babe's. The other one --
Paul: The other baby was thrown from the chopper on impact.
Kendall: No, no.
Kendall: No. Oh, God. No! No! No!
Jack: Krystal? It's Jack Montgomery.
Krystal: It's Jack.
Jack: Listen, this cell phone's about to die, so I have to talk fast. We found Bianca and Babe. They were both in the woods and they're alive.
Jack: And they both had their babies.
Krystal: What? How?
Jack: Just get over to the hospital. We'll meet you --
Krystal: Jack? Jack, Jack, are you there? They're alive! Both of them, they're alive! Oh, and they both had their babies!
Erica: Bianca and Babe, they're still alive!
Krystal: Yes, they are.
Erica: They're all right!
Krystal: Well, I guess the man upstairs heard us loud and clear!
Erica: Oh, thank God! Oh, thank you, God!
Jack: I'm going to go to the river and I'm going to look, ok?
Paul: Look, you know, I have tried. You know what the odds are --
Jack: I don't care what the odds are I didn't give up on my niece. I'm not about to give up on her baby.
Paul: You know, I'm going to go flag down the rescue boys.
J.R.: Hey -- we're not finished with you.
Reggie: Yeah, you're going to answer to me, too. But, first, I got to go find my cousin's baby.
J.R.: We had a girl?
Paul: Yeah. Congratulations.
Babe: Hmm, J.R.
Jamie: Yeah, you heard my brother -- we're not done with you yet.
J.R.: I'm right here. I'm right here, baby.
Babe: J.R., is it really you?
J.R.: Yeah. Yeah, it's me.
Babe: We had a baby.
J.R.: I know. I know.
Babe: J.R., it was so scary! My baby. Where's my baby? Where's my baby?
J.R.: Your baby's right here.
Babe: Oh. My baby. My beautiful baby. Thank you, God, for taking care of my baby.
Bobby: You need more time. Take as much as you want.
Anita: Without the pressure.
Anita: Then what do you call all of this?
Bobby: Anita, I'm still going back to Vegas, and I didn't want to leave us on a downer.
Anita: Yeah, but you don't have to impress me.
Bobby: That's not what this is about.
Anita: Then what is it about?
Bobby: When I'm gone, you could remember me being a jerk or you could close your eyes and flash back to this, remember the guy who loves you beyond the stars out there.
Anita: What -- what smells so good?
Bobby: I also want your mouth to water when you replay me serving you dinner. Our honeymoon meal -- when we finally remembered to eat.
Anita: Lobster tails?
Bobby: Australian, two-pounders.
Anita: With drawn butter?
Bobby: Would I serve you lobster tails without drawn butter? That would be like serving praline ice cream without caramel sauce.
Anita: Praline ice cream?
Bobby: Did I mention the asparagus with hollandaise sauce?
Anita: Robert Warner, you are evil in a can. You know all my weak spots.
Bobby: I also know how much I love you and that I can't imagine a future without you.
[Romantic music plays]
Bobby: Remember this? Dance with me, Mrs. Warner, like we did on our wedding day?
Singers: It's not the way it feels, but it's real
Edmund: Well, if there's anything you love, it's a challenge.
Maria: No, if there's anything I love, it's you, and there's a whole lot that goes with that. So I really, really want to understand why you need to feel like yourself again. But maybe there's just no way for me to ever really understand that, no matter how long I delve into the mind of Edmund Grey, so --
Edmund: I warned you it was a scary place.
Maria: Well, there's a big -- a big difference between understanding and accepting. And so, you know, it's -- this is not easy for me, but I'm -- I'm trying. I'll try.
Edmund: I know. I appreciate that, more than you know. Because I've never been more at peace with a decision in my life.
Maria: Ok, then that's good enough for me.
Edmund: I know you're scared.
Maria: No! You know what, I can't even be scared, can't even go there, because I would just be completely swallowed alive. So I'm going with hope and I'm going with faith and trust and that you really need this, so much that you're willing to risk your life for it.
Edmund: Lady --
Maria: I'll go get rid of your stuff.
Edmund: You are amazing. Don't go. Don't go. Don't go. Just -- stay here with me. Sleep with me tonight.
[Romantic music plays]
Bobby: Have I convinced you that I love you more than ever, that I would turn back every clock in the world to show you how much I love you?
Anita: To go back to when I trusted you -- before the affair? Nice trick if you can pull it off.
Bobby: Just give me a chance.
Anita: You make it sound so easy. It could take a lifetime to go back.
Bobby: Well, it just so happens that I have a lifetime, and it's all yours. We can do this, Anita. We can get us back. I know we can.
Anita: I'm nowhere near as sure as you are.
Bobby: Maybe you're closer than you think.
Anita: It's going to take a lot more than -- than hearts and flowers and promises to put us back to where we were.
Bobby: I broke my wedding vow to you. I know how much I hurt you. You're my wife. I love you. I need you.
Anita: There's an emergency. They need me downstairs.
Bobby: Ok, ok. I'll call you before I go to Vegas?
Erica: Joe, are Bianca and Babe all right? Are they and their babies?
Joe: All I know at this point is they're alive and they're en route to the hospital. Try not to worry too much. They're in very good hands now.
Krystal: You know, waiting's not my best event, either. It never has been. Every second that ticked by is like Chinese water torture. It just wears you into the ground. Listen, hon, I know how you feel about Bianca's baby, that it's just a tragedy waiting to happen.
Erica: All I feel right now is relief that they're all right. All I want to do right now is just hold my daughter close to me, like I did when she was born. And I just want her to know how grateful I am that she's all right, she and her baby.
Jamie: Maggie, I'm sorry. Just -- just go with Bianca, ok? I got stuff to do here. I'll meet you at the hospital.
Jack: Come on, Reggie, let's go.
Reggie: I'm going to meet you later, all right, with Bianca's baby.
Jack: All right. So where's Greenlee?
Ryan: Jack, you go with Kendall and Bianca. I'll take care -- I'll take care of Greenlee.
Jack: You do that.
[Helicopter takes off]
Jamie: All right, Cramer, give it up. Out of all the MedEvac pilots, how did you end up finding Babe?
Reggie: And don't play us, neither.
Paul: Well, she called me.
Jamie: She hates you. You tried to blackmail her. You tried to ruin her life. You're the last guy she would call.
Paul: Well, she did. I mean, how else do you think I found her?
Reggie: Well, sounds like to me that you have a lot of hate in your blood for Babe.
Paul: No, you got it all wrong, it's --
Jamie: We've got you nailed to the wall. This has stink all over it.
Reggie: And it sounds like to me that -- why you always throw dirt on Babe, huh?
Paul: No, I didn't! All right? I was trying to rescue them! I mean, that's what I do -- I save people!
Reggie: Oh, you save people, huh? Well, since you're such a bigtime hero, what about my cousin, huh? You lost my cousin's baby.
Tad: Stop it, ok? It's not helping anything.
Jamie: Dad, he is lying, I know it!
Tad: Shut up! It's not helping, all right? Why don't you go lend a hand to the rescue crew, try to help them find Bianca's baby. They're going to need it. James, please.
Jamie: Come on, Reggie.
Tad: Yeah. I tell you what -- you hang on to that thought, ok?
Paul: You're Jamie's dad, huh?
Tad: Yeah, that's right. And you're a pretty unique individual, Mr. Cramer. I mean, I know we've never met before, but I know an awful lot about you.
Paul: Yeah? Like what?
Tad: Like for instance, until that annulment goes through and the paperwork's filed, you and Babe are still legally married.
Paul: You know, I -- I don't know what Babe's told you --
Tad: Relax, Paul. Shut up. That's a little secret I intend to keep -- for Babe's sake. But there is something about you that really bothers me. Yeah. See, I got a real knack for knowing when somebody's not telling the truth. Matter of fact, it's my job. And in my business, it's not so much what somebody says, it's how they say it. It's all about their eye contact and their body language, the pitch of their voice, and all the sweat that's pouring down your back. And in my professional opinion, you're a poster boy for bald-faced liars worldwide. So now that we both know who we're dealing with, why don't you cut the crap and tell me what really happened here tonight.
Krystal: Babe? Baby doll? Baby doll, Mama's here. Mama's here. You're going to be all right. Life's just going to be sweet as a peach again, I promise, honey. You just hang in there.
Joe: Take her into cube four.
Krystal: Ok. Hang in there. Oh, J.R., thank you so much for bringing my little girl back.
J.R.: It's all right.
Krystal: Thank you!
Krystal: Is that --
J.R.: Yeah, yeah, that's Babe's baby girl.
Krystal: Baby girl?
Krystal: Oh! Is she --
J.R.: Oh, yeah, she's going to be just fine.
Krystal: Oh, thank God.
J.R.: Why don't you get in there and see her.
Krystal: Yeah. Ok. Oh.
Erica: Bianca! Bianca, sweetie! David, how is she?
David: We have to get her into surgery to stop the bleeding. Page Dr. Hall and prep an OR, STAT!
Erica: Just a moment. I just need one moment, that's all. Bianca, sweetheart? It's mommy. I'm here, honey. I love you.
David: Erica --
Erica: I love you so much, sweetheart, and I'll be right here waiting for you, honey.
David: Erica, we have to get her into surgery.
Erica: I love you, sweetheart.
David: Ok, come on, let's go, let's go, please!
Erica: I love you, baby.
David: Erica, please. Where's the baby? Where's Bianca's baby?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
J.R.: I'm not going anywhere until I know my baby's ok.
Kendall: Bianca is fighting for her life and her baby is God knows where.
Jack: This is not Erica's fault.
Tad: Why would you head off without a medic? Unless, of course, you didn't want any witnesses.
