All My Children Transcript Wednesday 12/15/04
Proofread by Gisele
Jamie: Well, be ever so humble, there's no place like our latest hiding spot. You ok? Telling Bianca wasn't easy.
Babe: Kind of numb. I mean, deep inside, I'm a total mess, but of course I'm so happy that Bianca and Miranda are back together again. It's just I'm feeling really awful. I should have got those two together ages ago.
Jamie: Hey, they're together now.
Babe: And finally they can be happy.
Jamie: Yeah, but we got to be careful from now on.
Babe: You think that Bianca already told J.R. that his son's alive?
Jamie: Well, if she hasn't, chances are my dad's broken the news and J.R.'s detectives are probably combing the state.
Babe: Well, let them. I don't even care if it's the FBI or whoever J.R. wants to scare up. Nobody is taking my baby away from me, not ever again.
Tad: Want to bet?
Adam: Listen, son, I've heard some things here. They have me very concerned. I need to know what's happened. Call me.
Winifred: Mr. Devane to see you, sir.
Adam: Ah! Yes, come in, Mr. Devane. That'll be all, Winifred. Good of you to come. Here, have a seat.
Aidan: So, why did you call me?
Adam: I hear you've helped the police solve some very difficult cases.
Adam: So my ex-wife has disappeared with my daughter. I want you to find them.
Aidan: That can't be done.
Adam: Oh? Is that because you don't do missing persons, or because you and Tad Martin helped them disappear?
Erica: How proud you must be of your daughter.
David: You have every right to be angry.
Erica: Angry? I am so far beyond angry, you couldn't even believe it.
Krystal: Babe did not mean to hurt anybody.
Erica: I know what Babe meant. And J.R. could delude himself until doomsday. I know. Babe told Bianca the truth. Miranda is alive. And as much as I despise Babe for allowing Bianca to think that her baby was dead, I despise you two so much more.
Kendall: Bianca? Bianca, you have a visitor. Please wake up. Someone's here to see you, Bianca. I brought the baby. Bianca, did you hear me? This -- this sweet little person wants you to wake up and say hello. Yeah. Come on.
J.R.: What do you think you're doing?
Kendall: Bianca needs extra support, so I brought her the baby.
J.R.: I thought I could trust you.
Kendall: I'm trying to save my sister.
J.R.: Yeah, with my kid?
Kendall: J.R., Bianca loves her so much, and I thought that maybe if she knew the baby was here she would wake up. Please, J.R., please, they have such a strong connection. Just let us go over --
J.R.: Bianca's connection to my kid is a lie.
Erica: That night we waited together, the storm raging outside, waiting for some word about Babe and Bianca -- I actually took your hand and prayed. We prayed together that our daughters would be found and that they would be all right. And I thought to myself we weren't so different. We both love our daughters.
Krystal: I do. I love my daughter.
Erica: Did taking my daughter's baby and giving it to your daughter, did that prove your love?
David: Krystal loves Babe as much as you love Bianca. As for Bess --
Erica: No -- Miranda.
David: I'd be careful throwing stones if I were you, Erica.
Erica: Oh, don't you dare condescend to me. How could you? How could you go along with this sick deception?
Krystal: I didn't even know at first. And when I did, I -- I didn't know what to do. I just couldn't, I couldn't hurt my daughter.
Erica: Well, you practically killed Bianca! She suffered agonies you couldn't even imagine -- or maybe you can. You just don't care.
Krystal: I do care, Erica. I am so sorry.
Erica: Well, I watched my daughter sob and scream. I watched the tortures that you put her through. I watched her go through group therapy and I watched her pack and unpack her bags and -- and move from place to place, and she could never feel at home because her heart was ripped out of her! And all the while, you and Babe across town, you -- you're playing family with my daughter's baby!
Erica: Well, I thank God that Babe finally came to her senses, but there is no way in hell that you had anything to do with that.
David: Wait a minute now. Krystal was behind Babe's decision all the way.
Erica: Oh, really? Oh, really? Well, why now, Krystal, huh? Why now? Why did Babe suddenly think that she should do the right thing? And please don't tell me she suddenly developed a conscience. Please just be honest for once.
Krystal: Erica, what I did was wrong.
Erica: Why now, Krystal?
Krystal: And if I had it to do over again, if I could go back and do it differently, then I would.
Erica: Well, Bianca has survived everything that you and Babe and David have put her through, but she might not survive this. And Babe is so ashamed of what she did or so afraid of the law that she's hiding out somewhere. So nice job, Krystal! You did Babe a big favor playing God.
David: All right. Ok. That's enough.
Erica: No, I have not even begun to deal with you.
Adam: You and Tad did a good job. My men couldn't find a trace of Liza.
Aidan: Yeah, she must have planned her exit for some time.
Adam: No, she just had expert assistance.
Aidan: Smart woman.
Adam: How are you enjoying the Pine Cone Motel?
Aidan: No complaints. Oh, there is one -- the ice machine's busted.
Adam: There are other amenities, of course, places like the Valley Inn, the Presidential Suite. Of course, you'll never know as long as you're Martin's partner.
Aidan: But working for you?
Adam: Oh, I can be very generous, very generous. You would have a few assignments. How you executed them would be entirely up to you.
Aidan: Let me guess -- my first assignment would be to find Liza and Colby, huh?
Adam: It should be a piece of cake since you already know where they are.
Aidan: 50 bucks apiece, huh? Wow, a man could get used to these.
Adam: You can have an endless, free supply.
Aidan: I think the price would still be too high.
Adam: I can make you a wealthy man.
Aidan: I'm more the downwardly mobile type, to be honest. Oh. I nearly forgot. Special delivery.
Adam: This is from Liza.
Jamie: He told J.R. we have his baby. That's why he followed us, to warn us.
Tad: Actually, that's not the way it shook out.
Jamie: You know what -- I've seen you do guilt. This is it.
Tad: Maybe so. But I don't feel guilty for ratting you out to J.R. because I didn't do it.
Jamie: Ok, you were burning to spill. All that talk about "as a father, J.R. has rights, we need to tell him his son is alive"?
Babe: What changed your mind?
J.R.: Bianca is in that hospital bed because of Bess, because she believed Babe's stupid lies about my daughter.
Kendall: Yeah, well, what if it wasn't a lie?
J.R.: It was.
Kendall: Come on, J.R. Let's go give Miranda back to Bianca.
Tad: J.R. proved me wrong. Legally, he may have rights, but morally -- well, I'm just glad you're alive. I cut your brother more slack than he deserved because I couldn't stand the idea of abandoning Dixie's son. If I'm lucky, I can help save her grandson.
Jamie: Well, we're glad you're onboard.
Babe: We sure are. Uh-oh. Our Mr. James is making that sucky face he makes.
Tad: Oh, that can't be good.
Babe: Actually, he's just hungry. I'm going to go run to the store for some supplies. Bianca's ok, isn't she? I mean, she has Miranda. J.R. didn't mess things up again, right?
Tad: Speaking of messing things up, if I were you, I would invest in some hair color and maybe some sunglasses.
Jamie: We know, Dad. We know.
Babe: I got it.
Babe: I'll be careful. Later.
Tad: Bye, darling. James, you know that just because I didn't share the information with J.R. doesn't mean he's not going to find out eventually. And when he does, the first thing he's going to do is come after Babe.
Jamie: Bianca's ready to drop the bomb.
Tad: No. That might not happen.
Jamie: There's something else going on. With J.R.? Dad, I can't protect James and Babe unless I know everything. What's going on?
J.R.: I can't give Miranda to Bianca. Miranda's dead.
Kendall: Yeah, but you said that Bianca believed Babe. She thinks that -- she thinks that Bess is Miranda.
J.R.: Yeah, but it's not true, Kendall.
Kendall: Yeah, but Bianca doesn't know that. Please, J.R., the doctors say that if Bianca doesn't wake up soon, that that could be it. And maybe if she thinks that Miranda is in the room with her, maybe there's a chance that she'll wake up sooner. I mean, isn't it worth a try?
J.R.: Ok, you know what -- let's just say that it works. Bianca's going to have to lose Miranda all over again.
Kendall: I want my sister back.
J.R.: Ok. Ok, you'll have her back. She's going to wake up. Let's just hope the doctors are right. Let's hope that when she wakes up she is not going to remember all Babe's trash talk or the fall.
Kendall: Bianca's just suffered so much. I want a miracle, I can't help it. I want Miranda to be alive and with us right now.
J.R.: There was only one miracle that night the helicopter crashed. Only one baby lived.
Erica: How could you? Have you forgotten what it's like to lose a child? Didn't you wake from a hundred nightmares hearing Leora crying, only to wake up and remember that she was dead?
David: Don't go there, Erica.
Erica: You knew the hell that you were consigning Bianca to, and that was all right with you?
David: Of course it wasn't.
Erica: But you did it anyway. To think that I cared for you, to think that I believed you cared about Bianca.
David: I do.
Erica: You cared so much for her, so deeply that you traded her happiness for Babe's, because Babe happened to turn out to be your daughter? Oh, you are a lousy father and a worse human being. You don't even deserve to have children.
Krystal: You don't know what he was going through, Erica.
Erica: No. But I hope it was hell. And I hope you never have another moment's peace or happiness, and I hope you live to be a very, very old man.
David: I chose to wait because --
Erica: You chose. Oh, you chose. You chose to betray a girl who trusted you and a girl who loved you!
David: I was trying to protect my family.
Erica: Oh, "family"!
David: Yes! And you would have done the exact same thing, Erica.
Erica: You are as low as Michael Cambias ever was.
Krystal: Erica, you don't understand. If you --
Erica: What? Understand what? What could you possibly say that could excuse what you have done? And you know what's ironic? How outraged you appeared to be at Michael Cambias.
David: You can't compare me to Michael Cambias.
Erica: What you have done to Bianca -- there is a special ring in hell for men like you. But this isn't over. And I won't have to wait until you're dead before you get what's coming to you because I'll take care of that myself.
Tad: I was with J.R. right after Bianca fell, and he was completely freaked out.
Jamie: After the fact. When J.R. was beating me, there was no fear. He wanted to kill me.
Tad: Are you absolutely sure you're all right?
Jamie: I'm great. But I wouldn't give J.R. any credit. You don't think he pushed Bianca. I wouldn't put it past him.
Tad: You may be right. Sharing has never exactly been a Chandler strong suit.
Jamie: J.R. is way past sharing.
Tad: Deep down, J.R. knows the truth, but the truth doesn't seem to fit in with his plans. He's going to fight for Miranda just as hard as Adam is fighting for Colby, which is why James belongs with Babe and you.
Jamie: Just don't tell Babe about Bianca. If she finds out Bianca's in the hospital and not with Miranda --
Tad: She could blow your cover.
Jamie: She will march right into that hospital and rip J.R.'s head off. Babe won't sleep until Miranda is with Bianca.
Tad: Which would endanger James. Don't worry, I won't say anything to Babe.
Jamie: Babe can't lose James. I don't think she could survive without that little boy. And with a dad like J.R., James needs her just as much.
Liza's voice: "If you respected my decision, backed off and let us alone, you just wouldn't be you, Adam. You targeted Tad first, remember? When he wouldn't divulge a single clue, you moved on to Aidan. I know you too well, which, in case you haven't figured it out, is why I left. I also know you don't care about finding me unless it's to extract revenge. You only want Colby. She's doing very well. Colby's thriving and happy, happier than I ever saw her in Pine Valley. That's why we aren't coming back and why I'll never let you find us. Colby is my only child. Stop worrying about her and worry about your son."
Erica: J.R. Were you able to reach the pilot?
J.R.: Yeah, I just got off the phone with him.
Erica: I really want to get Bianca back to Pine Valley as quickly as I possibly can.
J.R.: Yeah, well, the jet's ready, and our chief of staff has arranged all the medical equipment and personnel she'll need.
Erica: Oh, that's wonderful! Oh, that's just such a weight off of my mind!
J.R.: Well, leave it up to me. I'll take care of everything.
Erica: Oh, thank you, J.R. I mean, thank God that you were here.
J.R.: Aw. Of course.
Erica: I just can't imagine what I ever would have done without you. Yes. Thank you. Thank you very, very much for everything. I will never forget this. I just will never, ever forget this.
David: At least Erica doesn't know the truth about James.
Krystal: Yeah, seems like.
David: She doesn't. Tad must have kept his mouth shut about that part.
Krystal: You know, I was only with James, Lord, it just must have been a couple hours, but when I think about the fact that it might have been the last time I ever see him -- I guess it's my just deserts, though, right?
David: Don't say that.
Krystal: Why, because it's true?
David: We'd better clean up in case Tad changes his mind and spills about everything. I want to make sure that we clean up every trace we can find of baby James. Look, I'm going to toss this into the Dumpster, ok?
Kendall: Whose baby were you ready to hide out?
Erica: Bianca? Wake up, honey, please. You have to come back to us. You were right, honey. Your baby is alive. Miranda is alive, honey, and she's right outside.
Kendall: So Babe was lying.
David: About what?
Kendall: Well, Babe swore she wasn't going to kidnap the baby, so she lied. So if Babe was planning on kidnapping Bess, then why would she spread that about Bess being Miranda? See, it doesn't make sense. There's a piece missing.
David: Babe was going to kidnap her baby. We talked her out of it.
Krystal: Babe is just -- she's just been so strung out, she just doesn't even know what she's doing.
Kendall: So lying to Bianca was just her little backup plan to cause more trouble for J.R.?
Krystal: That's all we can figure.
David: We're very sorry.
Kendall: I want that lie killed, eradicated.
Krystal: Well, how are we supposed to do that?
Kendall: You stop her. Stop her the way you should have before my sister landed in the hospital.
David: We're worried about Bianca, too, but --
Kendall: You know what? You know what, David? You were just as bad. You saved your daughter from a kidnapping charge, but you didn't stop her from hurting my sister. Now, both of you stay the hell away from Bianca. And you tell Babe if she spreads that lie or shows her stupid little face in Pine Valley again, I will work with J.R. to make sure she never sees her child ever again.
Krystal: Well, Erica and Kendall make one heck of a tag team.
David: I'm backing out of our deal.
Krystal: What are you talking about?
David: You're running off, but without me.
Tad: I'm proud of you. You did what you knew was right, even when I screamed it was wrong. You're a good man, James Martin.
Babe: Should I back out of this warm and fuzzy?
Jamie: Dad's just grateful because I pulled my punch and let him keep his teeth.
Babe: Well, isn't that sweet. You know, this is making me think, how awesome is it that right now Bianca could be making a meal for her little angel, too?
Erica: Come back to us, sweetheart. Come back to Miranda. She needs you.
Aidan: Like I said, Liza is one smart lady. Martin & Devane Investigations. No case too big or too small, if it's the right case. No? Ok. Have a nice day.
J.R.: Everything's cool, sweetie. Bianca will never take you away from me. Just like the doctor said, she probably won't even remember all of Babe's crazy lies.
Nurse: Mr. Chandler? There's a call for you on line 3.
J.R.: Thank you. Where?
Nurse: Right over here.
Adam: J.R., why the devil haven't you called?
J.R.: Dad, I haven't had much time for anything.
Adam: What happened do there?
J.R.: It was an accident. It was a terrible accident.
Adam: J.R., the truth -- was it an accident?
Erica: Miranda is waiting for us to save her. I know you can, honey. I know you can. You've done so much already. We've done so much together.
Nurse's voice: Push, push, push, push!
Travis' voice: That's it.
Nurse: That's it!
Travis: Yes! Erica, yes!
Joe: Erica, your baby is born.
Erica: Oh! That's our baby! Oh, isn't she beautiful? Hello, sweetheart. This is your daddy.
Erica: Yes. Yes. And I'm your mommy. Oh, we love you. Oh, we love you so much. Please, please help me to be a good mother to this baby. You have brought so much joy into my life. And I wasn't prepared for everything. But giving you up to your father, honey -- that was the hardest thing I ever had to do.
Bianca: Will you still be my mommy?
Erica: Oh, yes, I am. I will always be your mommy. Don't you ever forget that, honey. I am your mommy, and I will always look after you.
Bianca: You will?
Erica: Of course I will. Oh, yes, I will. Mommies never stop looking after their children and they never, never stop loving them, no matter how far away they are, because you're inside my heart, honey. You always will be. That way, you'll always be safe and -- and cared for. You're a part of me forever, honey. You have always been in my heart and in my thoughts, no matter how far away you were. And look at you, honey. You've grown into such a strong and confident young woman.
Bianca: Look at me.
Erica: I don't want to look at you. I want you to go with me.
Bianca: Look at me! I want you to see who I am, Mother. Can you see who I am? Can you? I'm trying to show you. Have you always loved me, Mom? Have you?
Erica: How could you even ask me a question like that?
Bianca: Do you love me now?
Bianca: Do you?
Bianca: I'm gay.
Erica: It wasn't what I wanted for you. It wasn't what I expected. But you helped me through that. Oh, you have taught me so much, Bianca. And all I ever have wanted for you, sweetheart, is to be happy. Oh, I so wanted you just to be so finally, completely happy. It's all right, sweetheart. I promise you it's going to be all right, honey. You just tell me, who hurt you, honey? Who did this to you?
Bianca: Michael. It was Michael. He won't leave me alone.
Erica: And what did he do to you, sweetheart? Honey? Did Michael -- did he -- did he rape you? It's ok, sweetheart. It's all right, honey. You can tell me. You can tell me, baby. Please. Please.
Bianca: Yes. Yes, he raped me.
Erica: Oh, I wanted to lift that burden, that pain from you. I never wanted you to go through what I did. I look at you and I still see my little girl. No matter how old you get, I still see Mommy�s sweet little girl.
Bianca's voice: Mommy?
Erica's voice: Yes?
Bianca: I love you!
Erica: Oh, honey, I love you, too! I love you more than anything else in the whole, wide world.
Bianca: More than all the stars in the sky?
Erica: Yes. More than all the stars in the sky, more than every drop of water in every ocean of the world. With every breath I breathe I love you. With every breath I breathe. And now you know how that feels. With every breath you breathe, you are a mother. You are Miranda�s mother. And she's so close, honey. She's been with us all along. And I know that your grandmother is watching over us. She's watching over us and she's waiting for us to bring her great-granddaughter home. Come back to us, honey. Come back to us so we can get Miranda. We can take her home.
Aidan: It's me.
Liza: You shouldn't.
Aidan: It's ok. I'm scrambling through my computer using the technology of WI-FI.
Liza: And what does that mean?
Aidan: It means that any unexpected guest with a trace on this call will think you're in Australia.
Liza: Who says I'm not? What's up?
Aidan: Adam Chandler's blood pressure. He just read your note.
Liza: I thought he'd take it badly.
Aidan: Well, amp that tenfold.
Liza: Really? So did he get past the deadly venom-spraying stage to steel cold?
Aidan: Yes, he did, but don't worry about it. You and Colby are safe.
Liza: What about you?
Aidan: I enjoyed hearing the challenge, actually.
Liza: You know, if Adam didn't have so much power --
Aidan: Power doesn't give him the right to mess up kids, Liza. We're going to break the cycle with Colby, and then -- then we'll worry about J.R.
J.R.: Bianca tripped. She lost her footing and then she fell. The railing collapsed.
Adam: Why was Bianca in your room?
J.R.: Because I just got done performing the benefit.
Adam: And you were with her on the balcony?
J.R.: Listen, I'll fill you in when I can. All I know is my daughter's with me, she's safe, she's where she belongs, and nothing can change that.
Jamie: Dad? Thanks for the advice and the New Orleans contact, and for everything else you did.
Tad: Yeah, you just make sure I don't have to come after you.
Jamie: We'll make it work. Don't worry.
Tad: I'm serious about this. You take good care of one another, especially that baby, because if I have to come after you --
Jamie: Dad, I got it.
Tad: Well, then I guess it's time for me to shove off. Who knew it could be so hard to walk out a door?
Babe: Yeah, can I ask you a favor first?
Tad: Sure, sweetheart, anything.
Babe: Can you try not to hate Mama? Because everything that she did, good or bad, she did it because she loves me.
Tad: I don't hate your mother. Far from it. She was just doing what she knew she had to do. Now I'm doing the same thing.
David: Krystal, if Tad starts blabbing about James, I'll be positioned so that I can deflect some of the heat off of Babe.
Krystal: And take it on yourself, right? And there's another reason why you want to go back there?
David: Bianca. Not that anyone's going to let me near her.
Krystal: Still, you're going to feel better to be close by, make sure she gets through this all right. Well, it's settled.
David: What are you doing?
Krystal: We had a deal. Any music you face, I'm going to be humming along right beside you. So I wonder what the weather's like in Pine Valley right now.
Tad: At least I got to hold him once before I left. Yeah, I couldn't say good-bye without giving an adios to the little man that's changed all our lives. You keep your chin up, pal. I know the future seems uncertain, but you got a lot going for you. Mostly, a beautiful woman from West Virginia smiling down on you right now. Lord knows you couldn't ask for a better guardian angel. She's done all right for you so far, gave you a good young man that's going to make you a hell of a father. I know. I got lucky like that once. I'm glad you did, too.
Tad: Take care of your father, James. Here. Ok.
Jamie: I love you, Dad.
Tad: Yeah, yeah. Give me the bum's rush, right?
Jamie: Just tell Mom I love her, too.
Tad: Oh, yeah, yeah. Put on my raincoat first because that woman can cry at the drop of a hat.
Tad: I swear it's pollen season around this place. Killing me.
Babe: It is pretty awful.
Tad: Babe, I want you to do me a favor. You take good care of my grandson, because trust me, he's going to need his mama.
Babe: I will. Thank you, Tad, for everything.
J.R.: Did you get Bianca's release?
Kendall: Yep, it's in the works.
J.R.: Your mother's anxious to get her home.
Erica: Before Miranda was even born, you fought for her. You fought me and everybody else who couldn't get past the way she came to be. You knew it was your destiny to bring Miranda into this world. And you were right, honey. I am as sure now as you were then that it is your destiny to keep Miranda and raise her to be just as strong and as fine as you are. You just concentrate on getting well, honey, and I'll take care of this battle. I'll fight this battle. I swear to you that I will bring that sweet, innocent little baby back to you and put her in your arms, where she belongs. And no one -- not J.R. and not Adam -- no one will ever take her away from you again.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Anita: Is she going to come out of this?
Erica: Bianca's baby didn't die. Miranda is still alive.
J.R.: Are you with me or are you against me?
Kendall: You think I drugged Greenlee.
Greenlee: You think Kendall did this, and whatever Ethan took from the condo can prove it.
