Proofread by Gisele
Jamie: Babe, do you want me to get the doctor? Should I get J.R.?
Babe: My baby! Where's my baby?
Lena: Kendall, Erica, Bianca's awake. Why won't somebody -- what's that?
Ryan: It's an incubator. It was for the baby. She was in it, to protect her when she was in the helicopter.
Lena: So, where's --
Kendall: Bianca's baby is dead. Miranda -- Miranda�s dead.
Lena: Bianca's awake. She'll want her baby. She -- she'll be asking --
Kendall: Stop, stop.
Erica: Kendall --
Kendall: No, no. She can't hear if from you. She has to hear it from me.
Babe: Oh, my -- my baby --
Jamie: Babe, it's ok. Your baby's fine.
Babe: Where's my baby?
Jamie: Safe and sound in the nursery.
Babe: Oh, it's just a dream. Oh, thank God it's just a dream.
Jamie: I shouldn't be here, but I had to. I had to make sure you knew how -- how proud I am of you. You're a mom now, Babe.
Babe: I'm the mama. Baby -- my beautiful baby is safe.
Jamie: I just had to see her. I had to make sure she was ok. I'll leave.
J.R.: Not yet. I'm glad you came. Family matters to her. And you're family.
Jamie: I meant what I said out there. There's no reason to forgive me, but I promise --
J.R.: No, no, I don't think "forgive" is the right word. All I know is it's over, and Babe and I have our little daughter, and I think she needs her uncle.
Jamie: Well, she's got him -- your daughter. Wow.
J.R.: Yeah, tell me about it. We're the lucky ones. We have our little girl.
Kendall: Well, look who's back.
Kendall: Yeah. You were MIA for a while there. We missed you.
Bianca: Oh. We're back. Babe got us home. She said she would, and she did.
Kendall: Yeah, Babe did a great job. So did a few other people. A lot of people were worried about you two. You should've seen it.
Bianca: Has it been that long?
Kendall: It's been too long. But it was pretty impressive -- David and Adam working together, David and Tad. Hell, David and anyone is practically a miracle, all due to you.
Bianca: Oh, I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have run off like that. I feel so cottony.
Kendall: That's the anesthesia wearing off. Bianca, you had surgery.
Bianca: What? Why?
Kendall: Well, we'll get to that, we'll get to that. But you do need to know that you're doing a great job. You're going to be fine. The doctors gave me the whole rundown, and you are going to be just fine. You lost a lot of blood. And after you delivered, there was too much bleeding, and that's why you got weak and passed out. So they took care of it in surgery.
Bianca: Oh. Oh, the delivery. Oh, my God, Kendall, it was crazy. Babe and I drove off, and there was this storm. There was water everywhere, and then my water broke. I went into labor without my coach. I was so scared. It hurt so much.
Kendall: Bianca, it's over now.
Bianca: And it really is true. You really do forget all about the pain when it's done. Well, maybe not all of it.
Kendall: Binks, I --
Bianca: Oh, no, Kendall, don't be sad. It was worth it, honestly. Because everything turned out just fine.
Erica: Jack, I never should have let Kendall have to bear the burden of telling Bianca by herself.
Jack: Erica, listen to me. I know how much you love Bianca, and I know how badly you want to spare her this, but Kendall's right. You cannot be the one to tell her about Miranda. It would stand between the two of you for the rest of your lives. You see that, don't you?
Joe: Erica, can I get you anything?
Joe: I have to get this, but I'll be back for you and for Bianca.
Brooke: Take me home, Adam. We shouldn't even be here. Grief is too private for an audience. Let's go.
Adam: Erica, if there's anything we can do --
Brooke: Or anything we can do for Bianca --
Erica: Oh, thank you. Thank you both.
Greenlee: I hate this. It makes me sick.
David: Greenlee --
Greenlee: I know. I know -- Leora. You know, my heart is breaking for Bianca, and then I think about you and it breaks all over again. I'm so sorry, David.
David: Greenlee, look at me. I can't do this with you right now. I won't.
Greenlee: Ok, I know, I know, I'm sorry. You've been through too much. It's not fair for anyone. It's just not fair.
David: Damn it!
Krystal: I've been praying like crazy these last couple of days, asking God to help and protect those girls. And I know there's a lot we never understand, but -- why? Huh? You can't save the mother and not save the child.
Tad: Sometimes you can't save either.
Bianca: You don't know her that well yet, Kendall, but trust me, Babe is amazing. Check me out. How lucky am I to have such women in my life? She was strong and brave, and then she was funny and sweet like you. And the labor -- oh, my God, it was brutal. Like you have no idea how brutal. I was one big hurt. And I thought it would never end. But then it did end. And there she was -- Miranda. So perfect, so beautiful. And for some reason, God let her be mine. I am so lucky and so proud. You'll know what I mean when you see her, Kendall. Or have you seen her? Have you seen Miranda?
J.R.: We don't know what kind of hell that she went through. She hasn't been awake long enough to tell us everything. Babe's the toughest woman I know. Once the antibiotics kick in, she's going to kick some serious A.
Jamie: The doctors say how soon?
J.R.: Not soon enough for me. I just want my girls home. Babe and Bess. You know, you'd think all those years being with my dad -- he'd want me to have a boy so he could pass on the Chandler name. But now that Bess is here, it feels right.
Jamie: Hey, you're going to be a great dad. And I know you have no reason to believe me, but I got to say it. I want the best for you, J.R.
J.R.: I believe you. It's just -- I want you to play your part, too -- the part of being cool Uncle Jamie, huh?
Jamie: Uncle Jamie -- yeah, that sounds good.
Jamie: Just rolls off the tongue.
J.R.: Mm-hmm. How about we go see your niece, huh?
Jamie: All right.
J.R.: Come on.
Bianca: You've been here with me the whole time, haven't you? Well, you just wait till you see her, Kendall. You know that picture that you have in your head? So perfect that real life could never measure up? That's Miranda. Too amazing for words. And the love -- the love is more than you expect, too. Even when I drifted off, I was thinking of her. And I know that she just got here, but I feel like she's the other part of me, my soul. I held her. I sang to her, Kendall. I even nursed her. And then I knew.
Kendall: What -- what did you know?
Bianca: That this is what I've been waiting for my whole life. This is why I was born -- to be Miranda�s mommy. That's who I am.
Maggie: Bianca used to squeak when the baby kicked. I'd run over and she'd let me feel it. It was incredible. Being pregnant was perfect, and now it's over. It can't just be over.
Reggie: This is so wrong.
Greenlee: You're right. It is.
Aidan: Can I help you, gentlemen?
Man: You know either of the women on the downed MedEvac?
Tad: Yeah, we know both of them, and they're in pretty bad shape.
Officer: We heard, and we want to know why.
Tad: It's not a very good time.
Man: Please, let Ms. Montgomery and her family know we're sorry for their loss.
Tad: Will do. And thank you.
Bianca: You'll see what I mean about Miranda soon. When will they bring her to me? When can I see my baby?
Kendall: I'm so glad that you're doing better. But a lot has happened since the delivery. Do you remember the helicopter?
Bianca: Is that how we got to the hospital?
Kendall: Yes. A MedEvac pilot came to get the two of you, and he got there just in time to help Babe give birth.
Bianca: Oh, my God. Babe had her baby, too? That's amazing. Well, so, Kendall, tell me.
Kendall: Tell you what?
Bianca: Come on, Kendall, does Miranda have a little boyfriend or a little girlfriend?
Kendall: It's a girl.
Bianca: Babe and I both have girls. I love it. Wasn't it too soon for Babe, though? Is -- is the baby ok?
Kendall: She's fine. She's perfect, actually.
Bianca: Thank God.
Kendall: After the baby was born, the pilot took you and the babies in the helicopter. You were losing a lot of blood, so they -- they wanted to get you here right away.
Bianca: Did you talk to him? The pilot?
Kendall: Uh -- no, no. Why?
Bianca: Well, so I know who to thank. You said David and Adam and Tad, right?
Kendall: No, no, Bianca, wait, Bianca, wait, ok? Wait, there's more. There was a problem that -- they're not really sure what happened, but -- but there was a problem with the helicopter.
Bianca: What kind of problem?
Kendall: It crashed, Bianca.
Bianca: Oh, my God. Tell me Babe is ok.
Kendall: She's here. She's here in the hospital. The doctors are treating her.
Bianca: Kendall, after everything that Babe did for me -- for me and my baby -- she needs to be ok.
Kendall: She will be. She's going to be just fine.
Bianca: Thank God. Babe is so strong. Kendall, Miranda�s ok, right? Kendall, answer me. Was Miranda hurt? You have to -- you have to take me to her. If Miranda was hurt, then she needs me. She needs her mother. You have to take me to her. You have to take me to her. Kendall, Kendall --
Kendall: No, no, Bianca --
Bianca: Kendall, Kendall, you need --
Kendall: No, Bianca, I can't. I can't take you to her.
Bianca: Kendall --
Kendall: No, listen to me. Listen. Bianca, Miranda is gone. She's gone. She's never going to be hurt -- never going to be hurt or scared ever again, ok? She's with Mona now. She's warm and she's safe in Mona�s arms.
Bianca: No! No! No!
Reggie: No. Hell, no.
Lena: Come on, we can't stop now. We got this far. We have to get Bianca through this.
Maggie: How? We can't give her back her baby. If we can't do that, then we're useless. We're absolutely hopeless.
Krystal: Dr. Hayward, you know what it's like.
David: I know exactly what it's like.
Krystal: Do something. Do something to help Bianca.
David: No one can help her. I don't have any answers, Erica. I don't know how. I don't know why. But somehow, some way, you got exactly what you were hoping for. Tell me how it feels.
Ryan: You get the hell away from her, you sick son of a bitch.
David: Really, Erica, tell me. I would love to know.
Tad: Ryan, Ryan -- no! Not here, not now.
Bianca: No. No, no. No. No. Kendall, no. No, I don't -- I don't know who told you that, but it's not true.
Kendall: Bianca, listen to me --
Bianca: No, no, no, no, no. She was here. She was with me, she was inside me. She can't just be gone.
Kendall: No, please, please, Bianca. I'm so sorry.
Bianca: No. No, no, no. No, don't tell me that you're sorry. Just tell me where my baby is.
Kendall: She's with Mona now --
Bianca: No! Kendall, stop it, ok? Stop it. Grandma is -- ok, Miranda is not with -- she's not with Grandma. It's not possible. Ok, you -- you weren't there. You don't know what I told her, Kendall. You -- see, I told her that -- that -- that I would always love her and I would always keep her safe, ok?
Bianca: I told her that I would never walk away, and I'm not -- you can't make me walk -- you can't make me walk away from her now!
Kendall: Ok, listen to me -- listen, there is nothing that you could do about that crash, ok? There was no way you could stop it!
Bianca: Stop, stop, stop talking about the crash. Don't talk about the crash, ok? Babe made it, Babe's child made it. I made it, we all made it.
Bianca: I promised, Kendall. I promised.
Kendall: Yes, yes, and Miranda heard you. She heard you, Bianca. I know she did. She did. You did, you did love her and you did protect her. You did everything a good mother could do.
Bianca: Ok, ok --
Kendall: You did, you did!
Bianca: Stop it, stop it!
Kendall: You did.
Bianca: Stop it, stop it! Ok, just stop talking now. Just tell me -- just tell me where Miranda is. Just tell me where my baby is.
Kendall: I would if I could.
Bianca: Ok, ok, all right, all right, all right. I'm not going to talk to you anymore. Just go and just bring me my baby. Just -- just bring me my baby.
Kendall: I can't.
Bianca: No, no, no. Just bring -- just bring her to me.
Kendall: I would, Bianca. I would if I could, but I can't.
Bianca: Then do it!
Kendall: I can't!
Bianca: Just -- then just do it! Just go out and just bring her to me now!
Kendall: I can't! Don't you understand me? I would do anything if I could give her back to you, I would! I would, but I can't.
Bianca: Miranda! Miranda! Miranda!
[Unable to stand looking at the mangled portable incubator one more second, Jack takes it out to the trash while Greenlee sadly watches]
Danielle: You're back? You did it? You found your cousin?
Reggie: Yeah. We found her.
Danielle: Well, how was she? Is she ok?
Reggie: She's alive.
Danielle: Well, where'd you find her? I'm bored to death here, starved for drama. Tell me the whole happy ending.
Reggie: Look, come on, we're going out.
Danielle: What? What? Hang on a second. Tell me what happened.
Reggie: Look, I don't have time for this mess, ok? I'm going to get you some food, something to eat, and then you're going to have to hit the road, all right?
Reggie: Yes, now! Look, Danielle, I can't worry about you anymore, ok? How long you thought this little free ride was going to last?
Danielle: I just thought --
Reggie: Yeah, you just thought. You thought you was going to hang around here and move on? Whatever. Fine by me -- people bail out on me all the time. There's not a thing you can do about it, right? Yeah, right. Well, today's moving day, sister. Get your stuff and move on out.
Danielle: I hear you. Not my scene anyway.
Reggie: Yeah, well, maybe you could find another guy, you know, on the basketball courts? Another guy, another penthouse.
Danielle: Let's bag lunch. And keep your money. You've done enough. I'll send your sister her clothes once I get them all nice and dry-cleaned.
Reggie: For the last time, she's not my sister. And keep it. She can get a new damn dress. What are you waiting for?
Danielle: Have a nice life.
Reggie: Danielle, the baby died. Bianca's baby died.
Danielle: Oh, Reggie. I -- I don't know what to say.
Reggie: Her sister had to tell her. Her sister had to tell her those words. And Bianca -- I mean, we could hear her from the waiting room. And the sound she made -- I mean, I know I've heard it before, and if death has a sound, then that's it. But it's not -- it's not done. Bianca has been dying and dying over and over and over again. And I can't do anything. I can't do anything to help her. Nothing I could do.
Bianca: It was just a mistake. It's just a mistake, I promise. I promise, Kendall -- Kendall, I won't get mad at you. You just -- you have to tell me where my baby is!
Kendall: Bianca, I -- Bianca, I can't -- no, no. No, stay here, Bianca. Stay here. You stay here.
Kendall: You've got to stay here, please, please.
Bianca: No, no, no, you don't understand!
Kendall: Bianca, please stay.
Bianca: Kendall, I don't exist without her. I don't, I don't. I don't. Look at me. I'm here. Look at me. I'm still here. I'm still here.
Kendall: No --
Bianca: So Miranda can't be gone.
Bianca: No, she -- she --
Bianca: No -- Miranda! Miranda!
Kendall: Stay here.
Bianca: Miranda! Oh, God, no, no, no! No, no!
Kendall: Shh, shh, shh --
Bianca: Oh, God!
Kendall: Shh, shh!
J.R.: I don't deserve this.
Jamie: Of course you do. Jeez, come on, J.R. You can't think that way.
J.R.: If I can't say this to you, Jamie, who the hell am I going to say it to? I could've lost all of this. Long before the helicopter crash, I could've lost my wife and never gotten the chance to raise my child.
Jamie: You have every reason to blame me for that.
J.R.: I blame me. I had a choice in how to treat my wife, the woman that I said my vows to. And the things that I said to her -- and now this. For the rest of my life, I'm going to have to earn them. I'm going to have to deserve them. I'm going to have to remember what it was like running through the woods not knowing whether or not my baby was alive or dead. And I owe Bianca that and Miranda. So help me, I don't think Babe and I could survive what Bianca's going through right now.
Tad: How is she?
Krystal: A fever, a bad infection. She's pumped so full of drugs, she doesn't know what way is up. But all things considered, she's the luckiest girl in the world.
Tad: And the strongest.
Krystal: I just need her to get better.
Tad: Are you kidding? For Babe, it should be a piece of cake. We're talking about a girl that saved Bianca's life. Then she and her belly went through the forest on a cross-country run. She came back, delivered Bianca's baby, and then got started on her own. I'd say anybody who can do that can conquer the world.
Krystal: For a gal like Babe, conquering is easy.
Tad: Yeah, so's I noticed.
Krystal: It's her heart, Tad. That's her weak spot. I mean, that girl -- she's about to bust open with love for her baby, for her husband, for anybody she calls a friend. I'm not sure she can bear the news about Bianca and her child.
Tad: Krystal, there's some news you need to hear. The pilot of the helicopter?
Krystal: That man's got a burden to bear. I would not want to be in his shoes right now.
Tad: Listen -- the pilot was Paul Cramer.
Krystal: No. Tad Martin, what did that bastard do to those girls?
Tad: We don't know that he did anything.
Krystal: Well, where is he? He's about to start talking.
Tad: Look, I've already been through his story. Everything checks out. No, Babe called him specifically, ok? He flew in, tried to help them. He delivered her baby.
Krystal: Oh, my God. The thought of his hands on Babe and that little girl just makes me crazy!
Tad: Krystal, it's his job. He flies in that helicopter to try to help people that are -- are sick.
Krystal: Well, then why is Bianca dying inside? Did he have an answer for that?
Tad: Something went wrong with the chopper.
Krystal: Yeah, something went wrong the minute that he got into that cockpit. You mean to tell -- you want to look me in the face and tell me that you trust that piece of dirt?
Tad: Ok. I can't. But I also can't tell you that everything he says is a pack of lies.
Krystal: No. No, something -- something just doesn't feel right.
Tad: Maybe I shouldn't have said anything, but there's going to be an investigation. I just thought you should have a heads-up.
Krystal: Oh, that Cramer boy needs a heads-up. As far as I'm concerned, if it walks like a weasel, talks like a weasel, it's going to be roadkill. Until that blessed day happens, I just pray to God he stays away from my baby.
Kelly: He had another mother once, someone who gave birth to him. I just can't imagine she would do all that and then want to give him up.
Paul: Kelly, look, she gave birth to him, but she was never his mom. I mean, you have to love a child to be a mom.
Kelly: Shh. Maybe she regrets her decision. Or the father -- what about the father?
Paul: Please, she doesn't even know who the father is. I mean, that's the kind of woman that she is. She doesn't deserve him.
Kelly: She made a choice.
Paul: Kelly, that little boy is very lucky to have you.
Kelly: No, I'm the lucky one.
Paul: Well, then prove it. Forget about the birth mother. Look at him. I mean, he's forgotten. You're the only mother that he'll ever know, and Kevin is the father.
Kelly: Kevin's the father.
Paul: Kelly, this is what you have prayed for -- a Buchanan child to make you a family. You'll never have to worry about your marriage again. Trust me -- this baby was meant for you.
Paul: The helicopter went down! All right, your baby's incubator was thrown out in the crash!
Babe: I'll get her. Just tell me where --
Paul: 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: No! My baby! Where's my baby?
Krystal: Hush, hush, hush. It's ok. Mama's here. Lay down. Everything's ok. It's ok, Babe. Oh, Babe -- you're on fire! Oh, dear God.
Erica: Bianca is my soul. No lie, no secret, nothing could ever change that. And Kendall -- Kendall, I love now no matter how different we are.
Ryan: Or how alike.
Erica: Never -- never in my darkest thoughts did I ever wish this on Bianca. Every slap she's ever felt, I felt the sting -- every wound. To wish this grief on her?
Ryan: That's not you, Erica.
Erica: I only ever wanted to protect her, to protect both of them. You see that, don't you?
Ryan: Erica, I know how much you love them, and they send that love back to you a thousand crazy ways.
Erica: Maybe -- maybe in the past, but not -- not now, not with all this.
Ryan: Love isn't always pretty. It can be really messy, but it's still love. Just like the way you wanted to protect them, they wanted to protect you. That's why they didn't -- they kept the secret from you about the baby.
Erica: But I'm their mother, and they -- they should've --
Ryan: It's love. It's love, pure and not so simple. You need to believe that, Erica. They love you just as much as you love them.
J.R.: How perfect they are, right down to the little fingernails.
Jamie: That is kind of like magic. Or a miracle.
J.R.: But I'm going to have to tell Babe.
J.R.: Well, her and Bianca -- they were planning parties and pictures and all that, friends for life. How am I going to tell her that that's never going to happen?
Krystal: You see? You see? She needs help. Now, help her!
David: Krystal, I'm not on her case.
Krystal: You're a doctor!
David: Look, I don't have privileges to treat patients in this hospital!
Krystal: You have an oath and you have a fancy diploma. Now, do something for her! Come on, now, she comes from strong stock. She should be getting better. There's just something not right!
David: Her heart rate is racing. You're right, Krystal. Babe is in trouble.
Kendall: Shh, shh.
[Erica walks into Bianca's room as Kendall holds her hysterical sister]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greenlee: Who are you? And what are you doing in my clothes?
Aidan: You want to carry on hitting the bag, or you fancy going a few rounds with someone who might hit back?
Ryan: Bring it on.
Erica: Bianca --
Bianca: Don't! Don't say it! Don't even dare!
