All My Children Transcript Friday 3/26/04
Proofread by Gisele
J.R.: We have two women who have given birth, and we only have one baby!
Kelly: How could anyone give him up?
Paul: That's your kid. It's yours and Babe's.
Erica: What do you mean, Bianca's baby is lost?
Jack: When that helicopter crashed, they believe the incubator was thrown out on impact.
Kendall: Let them find her baby. Please, God, don't take her from Bianca. Please don't take this baby from us.
Tad: Why don't you cut the crap and tell me what really happened here tonight.
Ryan: Hey. Don't ignore me, Kendall, not now.
Bobby: Hey, are you ok?
Greenlee: What are you doing here?
Bobby: I came to see someone.
Greenlee: Tell me it's not Erica. The last thing she needs right now is you.
Bobby: No --
Greenlee: She needs my dad, and he needs her.
Bobby: I'm sorry -- who is your dad?
Greenlee: Jackson Montgomery. He's engaged to Erica.
Bobby: Oh. She didn't say anything about being engaged.
Greenlee: If you're the reason that she broke it off with him --
Bobby: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- hold it. I'm not the reason that Erica did anything. I hardly know her.
Greenlee: Didn't look that way in Philadelphia.
Bobby: Ok, I'm not after Erica. I like her, I respect her, but I am no threat to your dad.
Greenlee: Then who did you come here to see?
Bobby: Look, how about -- how about I take off, and we pretend we never saw one another, ok?
Greenlee: Just stay away from Erica, ok? She's got enough to deal with right now without you messing with her head.
Bobby: From what I saw in Philly, Erica doesn't like you, you don't like Erica, so why is it you're trying to protect her now?
Greenlee: Because I have to make up for what I did.
Krystal: Just stay strong.
Erica: Oh. Oh, Joe? Joe --
Erica: Bianca hasn't regained consciousness.
Krystal: Is my little girl going to be all right? Are those drugs working?
Joe: I will answer all your questions as best I can. But which one of you wants to come to my office first?
Krystal: Listen, Doc, our girls are just like sisters now. There's nothing you can say to me that Erica can't hear.
Erica: Same for me. Please, just tell us. Please tell us, Joe.
Joe: All right. Bianca -- we're very lucky she was found when she was. If she had been there much longer without medical attention, she could have bled out. But as it is, she is stable. She's healing nicely, and we expect a full and complete recovery.
Erica: Oh, thank you.
Joe: And by the way, Babe did a very fine job.
Erica: Thank you. Thank you, Joe. But Bianca's baby still hasn't been found, and -- do you think that -- that Bianca could still have children?
Joe: She should have no trouble conceiving again.
Krystal: Well, I guess Babe should consider midwiving. She did a pretty good job, huh?
Joe: Yeah, she did a pretty good job.
Krystal: Well, please, don't keep me in suspense. I mean, you got any good news for me? I could welcome any of it. My Babe's on the mend, too, right?
Joe: I'm afraid that Babe is not responding the way we hoped.
Kendall: They didn't find anything?
Ryan: Not yet.
Kendall: Well, it's been -- it's been all night. They going to call the search off?
Ryan: What? No. No, I'm -- I'm looking downriver below the falls. Aidan and Tad are still out there with the state police. They're going to call anything off until they have something -- something to report.
Kendall: Bianca would be very grateful to all of you.
Ryan: And as much I love Bianca, I'm not doing this just for her.
Kendall: I'm glad Bianca doesn't know Miranda's missing.
Ryan: Yeah. It's better this way.
Kendall: Yeah. Won't be for long. Breaking -- breaking the news to her --
Ryan: That's going to be incredibly difficult, yes.
Kendall: She's going to ask questions that no one wants to answer, or no one even can answer for sure. You know, Bianca's -- Bianca's made all the toughest choices for all the right reasons. And then she went -- she had to give birth in the middle of nowhere -- no doctors, no nurses.
Ryan: No Lamaze coach.
Kendall: I know, I should have been there. Ryan, I should have been there for her, but I had to go and I had to have it out with Erica. I -- I let her down. Bianca -- I let -- I let Bianca down, I let my niece down, and because of me they're probably dead, Ryan!
Ryan: No, you just stop, Kendall! I will not let you do this to yourself.
Bobby: What is it that you have to make up for?
Greenlee: I guess you're new in town.
Bobby: Yeah, I've been away for a long time.
Greenlee: What are you doing back? You a reporter?
Bobby: No, no, I'm not trying to get a scoop on you or Erica for some tabloid.
Greenlee: Well, it's already been done anyway.
Bobby: Ok, look, is there anything I can do for you? How can I help?
Greenlee: Are you coming on to me now?
Bobby: All right, never mind. Forget it. Forget me.
Greenlee: Have you ever just reacted, done something, and just turned around and think maybe you made the biggest mistake of your life, and your casualties are the people that you love?
Bobby: Actually, that's my area of expertise. Regret and guilt -- we're on a first-name basis.
Greenlee: But you're the type that doesn't lose sleep over it.
Bobby: No, no, it's cost me plenty of sleep, but, you know, I don't hide from it. Dodging -- that's not the answer.
Greenlee: Do you know what is? Come on. Share your brilliant life solutions with me. How do you get the people who hate your guts to forgive you for something that's unforgivable?
Ryan: From the first day in the cemetery, when I found out Bianca was pregnant, you took me on. You took on the entire world. Nobody -- nobody has been more devoted to Bianca and her baby than you.
Ryan: Yeah. You have a lot invested in Miranda. I know that you love her. You love her just as much as you love Bianca.
Kendall: It's like -- it's like I knew who -- I knew this tiny person. I knew who she was deep in her soul. Miranda was going to be the best part of Bianca and the best part of me, too.
Ryan: And she still could be. Ok? Don't -- don't you give up. This is not over yet.
Kendall: Oh --
Ryan: Hey, Kendall, you have to believe. You have to believe. I know it's very difficult for you to have trust in anything, but you have to have some faith. Ok, miracles happen all the time. Miranda could still be alive.
Adam: Oh. Beautiful, isn't she?
Adam: She's a survivor already. Got that out of the way in a hurry. Nothing will hurt her ever again.
Brooke: Oh, if only that were possible.
Adam: It is.
Brooke: Oh, God, Adam. Do I have to be the one to break it to you? You're not God.
Adam: I will give everything I have to protect my granddaughter. They're going to name her Lottie, after my sister.
Brooke: Oh, I heard Elizabeth -- Bess, after Dixie's mother.
Adam: I'll accept Bess only if her middle name is Charlotte.
Brooke: Oh, I see. And what college will Elizabeth Charlotte be attending?
Adam: It's down to the big three. Harvard, Yale, Wellesley.
Brooke: I was joking! I mean, she's not your baby, Adam, you know? She's J.R. and Babe's.
Adam: Oh, she's already 100% Chandler . To survive that -- that hideous birth with no doctor?
Brooke: And Babe doesn't get any of the credit?
Adam: And a helicopter crash? She's a Chandler , all right.
Brooke: Any word about Bianca's baby?
Adam: No, not yet.
Brooke: Well, how is Babe doing? Ruth said something about an infection.
Adam: No, it's terrible. They'll -- they'll take care of it.
Adam: She looks -- she looks like J.R. already. She's got that -- that Chandler jaw.
Brooke: You don't care if that child's mother lives or dies, do you?
Joe: The infection is still strong, and her temperature is rising.
Krystal: What's it going to take? What's it going to take to help her?
Joe: We're going to treat the infection more aggressively, that's all.
Krystal: Worst-case scenario, ok? Just don't hold back.
Joe: No need to think along those lines.
Krystal: Because I want to know, I will do whatever it takes, anything it takes to help her. Just -- what are we talking about here?
Joe: Right now we want to avoid septicemia.
Krystal: Septicemia? People die from septicemia.
Joe: No, no, no, no, no -- you're jumping the gun, believe me. The doctor is going to try another antibiotic, hoping that it will be more effective.
Krystal: Hoping? Hoping?
Joe: We're still going to be closely monitoring your daughter. At the present time, that's all we can do.
Krystal: You got to fight this, Babe. You got to fight this with everything that you've got.
Erica: Krystal, that may have sounded dire, but Joe would never let anything happen to her.
Krystal: Doctors can only do so much.
Erica: Right. The rest is up to what we have inside, who we are, and Babe happens to be an exceptionally determined young woman.
Krystal: What if -- what if God's just, like, pulling a job trip on me -- testing me, you know, to see how much I can take, to see how I can handle being without my --
Erica: No, no, no, no, no. Babe's baby wasn't spared just so you could lose your little girl.
Krystal: Sounds like you think there's a rhyme or reason for these kinds of things. Like he has a bigger plan?
Erica: No, I'm -- I'm not so sure about that myself.
Krystal: Well, until all this, I -- I rarely doubted it.
Erica: I know this. Thanks to Ba - -- thanks to Babe, Bianca is alive. And we are not going to let Babe go, Krystal. I swear to you, she's going to be all right.
Krystal: Well, for now, I am going to take your word for that. That's about all I can do.
Erica: Thank you, Babe, for taking such good care of Bianca.
Babe: Oh, Miss Kane --
Krystal: Babe -- Babe, you're doing great, honey. You're doing just great. But the doctor wants you to keep quiet, so why don't you just -- why don't you just try to get back to sleep?
Babe: No -- Miss Kane, I have to talk to you about Bianca and the baby.
Krystal: Honey -- honey, there's going to be plenty of time for that later. Bianca is doing just fine. And your baby is, too, ok? So you just concentrate on that and you just -- you just get some sleep, ok?
Babe: No -- now, before it's too late.
Ryan: Listen, the baby was in one of those portable incubators. She could still be snuggled in there right now, waiting to be found.
Kendall: Oh, Ryan, that's such a long shot.
Ryan: No, those things are very sturdy, ok? Somebody could have found it and taken it to a clinic. Or maybe they couldn't get that far because of the flood and they brought it home. She could be safe in somebody's home.
Kendall: You make me want to believe, Ryan. You do.
David: What a surprise.
Kendall: Still nothing?
David: No, nothing. But we haven't given up hope.
Kendall: Bianca would be very grateful. I'm -- I'm going to go back to the hospital. I want to be there when Bianca wakes up.
Ryan: Ok, you give her our love, ok?
David: Don't let her give up hope. Tell her that we haven't, ok?
Kendall: Yeah, I'll do my best.
David: Boy, you really are a piece of work, Lavery. We're all out there trying to find Bianca's baby, and you're in here coming on to her sister.
Bobby: I'm only an expert on the screwing-up part and what it costs. Easy solutions? Sorry, there are none.
Greenlee: You're a big help.
Bobby: Well, hey, it's -- in my experience, you just have to keep plugging away at it and hope they forgive you.
Greenlee: And how many times can you say "I'm sorry"? After a while it sounds fake, even to me.
Bobby: Do you really mean it?
Greenlee: Of course I do.
Bobby: Ok, well, then don't let it get stale. You know, you have to prove to them that you're worth the risk. You have to earn that second chance.
Greenlee: Or third or fourth or fifth.
Bobby: Yeah well, whatever. You just don't quit. And it's not going to help, you sitting around here.
Greenlee: When do you know it's enough?
Bobby: When she takes you in her arms and says it's ok.
Greenlee: Hmm. What woman did you mess up?
Anita: There's no hidden info, Maggie. Bianca's going to be --
Lena: Bianca. Oh, my God -- Bianca.
Maggie: Lena, Bianca's --
Lena: She's -- she's unconscious.
Maggie: Yes, but she's going to wake up soon, right?
Anita: Yeah, we expect a full recovery.
Lena: Oh, my God. Thank God. Bianca, you'll be fine. You'll be all right.
Anita: I'll -- I'll check back in later.
Lena: The baby? Miranda.
Maggie: What are you doing?
Lena: I should have been here. You should have called me.
Maggie: I tried!
Lena: Not hard enough!
Maggie: It's not like you were across town, Lena.
Lena: They do have cell phone service in Chicago.
Maggie: I tried to get your cell phone number.
Lena: It's in Bianca's book!
Maggie: When they recovered her totally wet purse, I'm sorry if my first thought was not her address book. I was more concerned with if she was alive or not. It got a little crazy. I'm sorry. Look, even if you had been in Pine Valley, there wasn't anything any of us could do. It all just happened. There was the flood, the storm. We couldn't even reach either of them. We didn't even know anything until after the helicopter crashed. And then Bianca was so bad off. And her baby -- my God, her baby.
Ryan: I don't know what kind of BS you're trying to pull here, David, but I don't want to hear it.
David: No, no, no, don't play stupid with me, all right, Ryan? You know that you've already broken Kendall's heart once.
Ryan: Oh, and, what, you were there to pick up the pieces?
David: No, I was there to tell her that you weren't worth one tear. And now what are you doing? Playing the same games with Greenlee. I'm not going to let you get away with it!
Ryan: No, you don't tell me what to do about anyone --
David: I am telling you!
Ryan: Or anything!
David: Stay away from Kendall, stay away from Greenlee!
Ryan: And I'm telling you, you go to hell!
Tad: Ryan! Hayward! They're signaling from downriver. I think they found something.
Krystal: Now, the doctor said it's not good to get all worked up.
Babe: I'll be ok. Bianca wouldn't want me telling you this, Ms. Kane, but she told me lots of stuff when we were driving before the storm hit. She was pretty upset about -- about what you guys talked about -- your fight and what you said to her. She was really starting to freak out. She felt like she had to make a choice between you, her mother, and her baby.
Greenlee: Whoever the lady is, you must have screwed her over bigtime.
Bobby: Yeah, she'd agree with you.
Greenlee: But it's definitely not Erica, right?
Bobby: No, it isn't. That much you can be sure.
Greenlee: Too ashamed to give me the details?
Bobby: You already can't stand me. Why would I give you more ammunition, huh?
Greenlee: I might feel better if I knew you were worse off than I am.
Bobby: You'll feel better if you stop hiding and deal with whatever or whoever it is out there. Ok? Good luck.
Greenlee: Deal with it.
Jack: Hey, hey. Hey, am I glad to see you.
Greenlee: You are?
Jack: Why sound so surprised?
Greenlee: Because I -- I have so much to apologize for. I was going to come and find you, but I'm the last person that anyone wants to see right now.
Jack: Wait, wait, wait, I don't like to think of myself as just anyone.
Greenlee: Well, you know that this isn't just talk. I truly regret --
Jack: I know, I know. I know you mean it.
Greenlee: Well, wait until --
Jack: And it's awful big of you to say it, and it makes me proud of you. Now, there, I've said that. Go ahead.
Greenlee: Wait until I do penance. I mean, there must be something that I can do to make up for --
Jack: Greenlee, Greenlee --
Greenlee: What I did.
Jack: Bianca is not in this hospital because of anything you did at that trial.
Greenlee: Well, I'm sure if you trace it back, you could find something. I should leave town again.
Jack: Headed for where?
Greenlee: Paris was the plan at one point. Maybe I should have stuck with that.
Jack: Well, Greenlee, right now I need my family around me. You're my family. I need you here.
Greenlee: Well, even if you love me, you might not be able to forgive me. I didn't listen to you during Kendall's trial. I just was all out for myself. I wanted to prove that I was right.
Jack: You know, any minute now, I might have to go into Bianca's room and give her the worst news that a parent could ever possibly get. I didn't have you, didn't even know you were mine for so long. What kind of father, what kind of human being would I be if I turned my back on you now?
Greenlee: One that's learned from experience.
Jack: Yeah, well, hopefully, we all learn from experience. But, sorry, that's not going to get you out of this. You're stuck with me till the day I die. Is that ok with you?
Adam: Don't make a scene!
Brooke: I'm trying to avoid one. This whole hospital is full of people who are worried to death about Bianca and Babe. They gave birth in unspeakable circumstances. Their health has been compromised. Bianca's baby is missing. I swear to God, I would slap you upside your head if I thought it would do any good!
Adam: Stop being so melodramatic. Ooh!
Brooke: That -- that is melodramatic. But it's also useless because I know you're about as malleable as granite. Oh, what? That got through to you?
Adam: No. I just -- I was just thinking about the last time you resorted to violence.
Brooke: Four people's lives were nearly lost. Three of them were saved. One of them is still missing. And I know this is insane to ask this of you with your track record. Where is your compassion? This is shaping up into a tragedy. Bianca's child is probably dead, and all you can think about is the Chandler heir!
Adam: My family has always been my primary concern. I'm not going to lie to you. You know me too well. So if you want to -- if you want to light a candle for Bianca or Babe or -- or pray and weep for the whole damn world, then fine, be my guest. But I for one am thrilled -- I'm ecstatic that my flesh and blood survived.
Brooke: That poor child. To grow up under your influence. I can't believe I'm saying this, but you know what? I wish that she had turned out to be Jamie's.
Jamie: Could this get any worse?
Maggie: Oh, please, don't -- don't say that.
Jamie: How's Bianca?
Maggie: Well, they say that she's going to be fine eventually. She hasn't come to yet, but unless we have some good news for her when she wakes up -- Jamie, have you been to see Babe yet?
Jamie: I was on my way. Why? What happened?
Maggie: Jamie, she's got some infection, and it's bad.
Erica: A choice between the baby and me?
Babe: Bianca thinks that she has to leave town. She said she's going to take Miranda and she's going to go and she's never going to look back. Please, Ms. Kane, you have to stop her.
Krystal: No, no, honey -- honey, don't worry about that right now. Bianca is just fine, ok? She's right here in her own room, and she's recuperating.
Babe: No -- when she's better, she's going to go.
Krystal: Honey, just don't fret about that.
Babe: Ms. Kane, please, you have to patch things up with Bianca. When she was in labor, we got to talking to keep her mind off the pain. She said that when she was little that you used to like to brush her hair, kind of played with it. And when she was little, she used to think that it was silly, but -- but now she understands. She said that she knows now that every single time that you brushed her hair, you were showing her how much you loved her. And now she wants to do that for Miranda. Oh, Ms. Kane, you don't want to miss out on that.
Krystal: Honey -- honey, just take it easy now. Take it easy.
Babe: Please, you just have to tell her -- just tell Bianca that you love her and her baby. Miranda -- she's so beautiful. Hopefully one day she'll be as beautiful as you are. So please tell Bianca it's ok. Just tell her.
Erica: Babe, you need to rest now. You just need to rest.
Babe: Oh, Mama --
Erica: Oh, excuse me.
Brooke: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm -- listen, will you let me know if there's anything I can do to help?
Erica: Oh, yes, if I need platitude, you'll be the first one I call. Wait, I'm sorry. That was incredibly unfair.
Brooke: It's ok, it's -- listen, if you need somebody to kick, I'll gladly volunteer.
Erica: Maybe you're -- maybe you're the only person I can turn to for -- for brutal honesty.
Brooke: You ask me anything you want.
Erica: Bianca is so invested in her baby. She loves that baby so much, and now she may have to deal with -- Brooke, I know that you suffered the loss of a child. I don't want to lose my daughter. I want to be there to be able to help her through this, but I don't know how, because she's furious with me. I -- I have driven her away, and how do I get her back? How -- how do I bring her back close enough to me so that I can comfort her and help her now that she needs me the most?
Brooke: Oh, Erica, what can I say?
Erica: Oh, anything. Anything at all. You might say -- you might just, you know, trigger an idea in me. I don't know. Take cheap shots. Tell me what a rotten mother I am. I mean, I don't even deserve Bianca.
Brooke: Hey, listen -- I have made so many parenting mistakes in my life, I can't even remember all of them.
Erica: You have?
Brooke: You know, mothers are not infallible. I think what we do is that we try to do what we think is best for our children.
Erica: But maybe I did what was best for me. Maybe I just thought of me, and now is Bianca paying for that?
Brooke: Do you want honesty? Because honestly, the thing that I admire about you the most is how deeply you love Bianca. Oh, sweetie -- sweetie --
Joe: We just got an emergency call about the crash.
Erica: Oh, God, Joe! Is it the baby? Did they find Bianca's baby?
Kendall: You have a very beautiful daughter. Look at her. She's so -- she's so perfect. She's carefree, almost.
J.R.: Yeah. Her life is just beginning.
Kendall: She's very lucky.
J.R.: No, Babe and I are the lucky ones. You know, Kendall, I'm so sorry the way everything's ended.
Kendall: Well, nothing's ended, J.R. It's not over yet.
J.R.: Right. Of course. If there's anything I can do for you guys, I'm -- I'm there.
Kendall: I'll pass that along to Bianca.
J.R.: You know, our situations could have been so easily reversed.
Kendall: Yeah. But you know what? Who knows? I mean, maybe -- maybe Miranda and Bess could still grow up to be best friends.
Kendall: Well, how -- God, how is Babe?
J.R.: She's got an infection right now. That's as tough as she is.
Kendall: Well, I'm sure she'll be fine. You'll make sure of that.
J.R.: Yeah. Yeah. Kendall --
Kendall: I'm ok. I'm ok, I'm fine. It's just when I saw Bess for the first time in that incubator by the river --
Kendall: When I looked in her eyes, I saw Bianca.
Lena: I'm sorry. I would have given anything to be with you. But I'm here now, whatever happens. You'll -- you'll get through this. I'll do whatever you want, whatever you need. Oh, my God. I love you so much.
Erica: We -- we don't know. It could be nothing.
Krystal: Lord, I haven't prayed so much in my whole life as I have these past two days.
Greenlee: You go ahead.
Jack: No, no, you -- you stay close, ok?
Jack: So what's going on?
Brooke: We're not sure if anything is.
Adam: We're waiting to find out.
Kendall: Why didn't you guys call me?
Maggie: Kendall, we -- we don't know anything yet.
Erica: A call came in from the searchers, we think.
Krystal: Yeah, but nobody's telling Erica dip.
Erica: What is that, Ryan?
Tad: It's a portable incubator. They found it about 10 miles south of the crash site.
Joe: It's one of ours, from the helicopter.
Erica: Are you saying --
Tad: They pulled it out of the river.
Kendall: No, that -- that doesn't mean --
Ryan: The rescue squad has changed the search status to recovery.
Kendall: Instead of rescue.
Ryan: They -- they said that the baby could never have survived that river.
Lena: She's awake. Bianca's awake.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Tad: The pilot of the helicopter was Paul Cramer.
David: Somehow, some way, you got exactly what you were hoping for.
Bianca: Kendall, Miranda's ok, right?
