All My Children Transcript Monday 12/20/04
Proofread by Gisele
Ryan: So you know who drugged my wife?
Zach: You interested or not?
Ryan: The truth? Not a lot you say interests me.
Greenlee: Ditto that. He's not interested, we're not interested, so why don't you just go away?
Zach: I have evidence.
Woman: Mr. Montgomery, I'm very sorry about your niece.
Jack: Thank you.
Ethan: If you've come here to accuse Kendall of drugging your daughter, I suggest you turn around and leave, right now.
Kelly: I've come for my baby.
Jamie: Kelly, you don't know what you're talking about.
Babe: This is my child. And no one is ever taking my little boy from me ever again.
J.R.: What could you do to lose me, Dad? And why are you really here?
Adam: I'll tell you why she's really here and exactly what she wants.
Anita: Kendall. Have you left this place since you got here?
Kendall: I can't. I can't go anywhere. I can't let her --
Anita: Sisters. Sometimes you can't get along without them. Sometimes they make you nuts. Maria's always hanging over me, telling me her expert opinion on something. Got to love them, though, right? Ok. Bianca, your numbers are fine. So let's -- let's snap it up and wake it up already. Come on, the food's much better upstairs. Because here's the thing. People are going to start to talk, you know? Like "When are you going to get out of this bed and give it to somebody who really needs it?"
Kendall: What are you doing?
Anita: We talk to each other like this all the time.
Kendall: Are you nuts?
Anita: You should try it, Kendall.
Kendall: She's in a coma.
Anita: There have been studies that say that people in comas might hear every word we're saying. Until we know for sure, I choose to believe that she can hear me. So I'm not going to say anything to make her mad or upset or think that it's ok to give up. Try it. Just talk to Bianca as if she would answer you back.
Kendall: I have tried. But she doesn't answer me.
Anita: Not yet. I know this is hard, but we have to hold on to her. We have to hold her head as best we can.
Kendall: I would do anything for her.
Anita: I know. I keep thinking about Bianca and I on our horses, racing back to the stables with me always getting there first. You never made it easy for me, did you, Bianca? Hey, did you tell Kendall about the night that we shared some wine? When our love lives tanked?
Kendall: Hey, you should have called me to commiserate. My love life tanks on a regular basis.
Anita: What do you say, Bianca? Do we include Kendall on our next girls' night out?
Kendall: I'll buy. Champagne, vintage.
Anita: Well, then that settles it. Kendall's coming. Bianca, I have some people I need to attend to, but I'll be back, ok?
Kendall: Anita -- thank you.
Anita: We can't give up, Kendall. We all have to fight together to bring her back.
Kendall: You know what? You, my friend, were dead-on about the Enchantment fragrance. You were right. The jasmine was the perfect touch. Sales just keep going up and up.
Ethan: The last thing that Kendall needs right now is you on the attack.
Jack: You have no idea what I came here to say to her.
Ethan: I know that I can't have you in there throwing accusations around, not with what she's going through right now.
Jack: Oh, you can't have me, huh? Who the hell do you think you --
Ethan: Why don't you listen to me? Greenlee's fine. And let's be grateful for that. Leave Kendall alone to deal with her own pain.
Jack: Now you listen to me. You think you're protecting Kendall? Well, that's fine. But don't you dare try to tell me what I can and cannot do when it comes to my nieces and my daughter. You follow me? Now, get the hell out of my way before you find yourself in the ICU.
Greenlee: Ah. Kendall. Why didn't we think of that?
Ryan: Never crossed my mind.
Greenlee: But now that Zach has brought it to our attention, it's so obvious.
Zach: You don't want my opinion. I get that, but maybe you should have a look at this.
Ryan: This week's smoking gun?
Zach: You know what they say. Where there's smoke �
Adam: This woman is trying to play me like a baby grand. She's not here for advice about specialists to treat Bianca.
J.R.: What are you up to, Erica?
Adam: Same old stuff. She's looking for a scapegoat. She's trying to convince me that you have a -- a vendetta against Bianca. And that you're the one that pushed her off that balcony.
J.R.: I didn't push --
Erica: I can't just take your word for it, J.R.
J.R.: I never left that hospital in Florida. I went out of my way to get all that special medical equipment and everything so Bianca could fly home. Because you asked me to, and because I care. I'm sorry, I -- I don't get it.
Erica: Look, I know that you went above and beyond. But quite frankly, J.R., all you said and did could be the actions of a man eaten up with guilt.
Adam: Sometimes an accident is an accident.
J.R.: No, I would never hurt Bianca!
Erica: I want to believe that you care about Bianca and what happens to her. I so want to believe that you'll do the right thing for Bianca.
Kelly: Ace -- honey -- he seems kind of fussy. I can fix that.
Babe: It's just that he's coming down with a little cold, that's all.
Jamie: You have to believe us, Kelly. This is Babe's son. We had no choice but to do what we did.
Kelly: Really? I wonder if the police would agree that you had no choice. I'm going to just give them a call, huh?
Jamie: No, you're not calling anyone.
Kelly: You stole my child. You kidnapped my baby.
Babe: No, this baby has only been kidnapped once, and that was the night that he was born.
Babe: Kelly, it wasn't by me.
Kelly: You can prove that?
Babe: Yes. Remember that night -- it was in Llanview at the diner. And you saw me and I was holding him, and I -- I was getting a swab from inside his cheek for a DNA sample, and I got my proof, Kelly. This is my son. Look, we all know what happened that night that he was born, and it's not your fault and it's not mine. It was Paul. Kelly, your brother -- I'm sure he was trying to help you, but he also hated me.
Kelly: I don't believe a word you say. I had to find him and make sure that he's ok. I --
Babe: I understand, I do. I understand what you're going through, but we can't let you call the police.
Kelly: I have to hold my son. Come here. Come here, honey. Come on. Look at you! God, you've gotten so big! Yes, you have! Hey, sweetie. Oh, God, I've missed you so much. I've missed you so much.
Jamie: He's hungry. I think I'll just go feed him in the other room. Come on. Come here, buddy.
Babe: I know what this feels like, what you're going through. He's -- he's so precious, too. And you love him so much. You're right, losing a baby is the worst thing that can ever happen.
Kelly: You don't know.
Babe: I do. I thought that I had lost my baby. For the longest time, I thought that he had died in the river. Until I figured out what Paul did.
Kelly: How could you do what you did? How could you just take him? I had no idea where he was! Why didn't you just come to me?
Babe: I did. I -- we tried. Mama came, and she -- she tried to talk to you. You wouldn't listen.
Kelly: She was a stranger! My God, how did -- how could I know I could trust her? What would you do? You had no idea what I was going through.
Babe: I know. God, I didn't mean to try to make this worse. I -- you have no idea how sorry I am that your baby was stillborn, Kelly. But that still doesn't give you the right to keep the child that Paul took from me. Nobody has that right.
Kelly: I know. If Ace is really your son, then that other baby that you had -- the little baby girl -- that was Bianca Montgomery's child, wasn't it?
Babe: I didn't know for the longest time.
Kelly: But eventually, you knew. So basically, you're accusing me of doing exactly the same thing that you did. You kept a baby that didn't belong to you, a baby who belonged to Bianca.
J.R.: I told you all of this, Erica. Bianca wasn't in her right mind when she fell.
Erica: You told me she was upset.
J.R.: She was angry. She was willing to do anything to take my child, all because of Babe's sick lies. There was no talking sense into her. She got crazy.
Erica: And -- and then she went over the balcony?
J.R.: And I would have stopped it if I could. But Bess is my child. She means everything to me.
Adam: Nobody doubts how much you love that baby, J.R.
J.R.: All the pain and misery Babe has put me through -- the lies -- she's poison. The one thing that's gotten me through is Bess. She's the one thing that's worth getting up in the morning.
Adam: You're a good father, J.R.
J.R.: She's the innocent in all this. Purest of love. And she's my life.
Erica: I'm so sorry, J.R. I'm -- so sorry.
Maria: What in the hell was that that I just witnessed out there?
Zach: Not sure what you're talking about.
Maria: Oh, yes, you do know exactly what I'm talking about -- Ryan and Greenlee.
Zach: Were you spying on me?
Maria: Oh -- why are you pushing that whole idea of Kendall being Greenlee's personal druggist?
Zach: Because it's a possibility.
Maria: Oh, my God, it's a frame-up.
Zach: She says without knowing the evidence.
Maria: What evidence?
Zach: Does it matter?
Maria: Yes! It should! Or have you become such a complete son of a bitch that you don't care that a woman's innocence is irrelevant when it comes to what you want?
Zach: Why does it feel like you only hear half of what I'm saying to you?
Maria: Oh. Ok, I'm listening to every word right now, talk.
Zach: What I said was that I'm going to protect Ethan. Why can't you just believe that and leave it at that?
Maria: Protect Ethan and somebody else takes the fall? Oh, you know what? Good for you. That's great. You get to kill two birds with one stone. You protect your son and you destroy the woman that he cares about.
Zach: You asked me a question. I answered it.
Greenlee: If this is for real, Kendall's been seeing a shrink once a week.
Ryan: And look when she started -- September 14. That's -- that's like a week after the murder game.
Greenlee: She's been taking the same medication that I've been on.
Ryan: Anti-anxiety pills.
Greenlee: Well, it's not like she didn't need them. I mean, think about all she's been through, starting with court and then Miranda, and then she lost you to me, which made it twice as bad. And then we got married, and to top it all off, she thought that she shot you. She probably took every single one of those pills.
Ryan: Yeah, look when she filled the prescription. It was like a couple days before your first episode.
Greenlee: Yeah, but nothing in Zach's info said that she was prescribed the other medication, the anti-psychotic.
Ryan: Doesn't mean she could've got them.
Greenlee: You don't really buy that?
Ryan: Look, all I know is that somebody wanted you to be weaving baskets in a straitjacket for a very long time.
Greenlee: See, Kendall would've known better.
Ryan: If she was thinking rationally. Big "if."
Greenlee: She really seemed to be trying so hard.
Ryan: Could've been a diversion, you know, get our minds off of things so that we'd let our guard down so she goes after you. She's crossed the line before, Greenlee. What do you think?
Greenlee: With everything that's gone down, you know, I really hoped that she'd get past it. I thought that someday Kendall and I could actually co-exist in this universe without hurting each other. We were friends once before. I mean, anything's possible.
Jonathan: Hey, you guys ok?
Ryan: Sort of.
Jonathan: Well, I was waiting for you at the penthouse. When you didn't show, it just -- just something's going on.
[Jonathan reads the note Zach had given Ryan about Kendall]
Jonathan: I knew it was her.
Kendall: I know she's in there. I know. She's got to be in there. She has to be in there fighting like crazy.
Ethan: Ok, so let's just make sure that she doesn't hear anything negative, ok?
Kendall: Yeah, well, you're going to have to help me on that one because honestly, all I want to do right now is I just want to scream really loud, "Don't die, Bianca, I can't face life if you're not here," but I can't let her hear me say that.
Jack: So you scream at us, ok? Yell at us, as long as you want. Come here. Bianca will never hear that, now, will she? Ok? Boy, I'm not so sure this is a good idea. So, kids, what's up? I thought you were going to wait for me.
Reggie: Well, she started talking about the Binachi numbers, and she wouldn't even think about staying home.
Lily: I had to come. I have something to give to Bianca, something really important.
Babe: I made a decision for the love of my husband, and I justified holding on to a child that wasn't mine. And it was wrong. And it ate at me every single day that that little girl wasn't with her mother. You know how I feel, don't you? Kelly, it is the same way that you justified holding on to my child.
Kelly: I thought Ace's mother didn't want him. Paul told me that she was living on the streets, that she couldn't take care of him the way he deserved. But, you, you knew. You knew that Bianca wanted her child, and yet you still said nothing.
Babe: Don't you --
Kelly: You said nothing to your friend. What kind of woman does that? What kind of mother?
Babe: It was the biggest mistake of my life, ok, and I'll regret it to the day that I die, but I tried to make things right. I told Bianca the truth.
Kelly: Right, after you took my child. What if you had never found Ace? You'd still be in Pine Valley passing off Bess as your own.
Babe: That is not true. I was going to tell Bianca everything, even before I found out that my little boy was alive!
Kelly: How can I believe a word you say, you've told so many lies?
Babe: This isn't easy, Kelly, not for any of us, but those babies belong with their mothers.
Kelly: You are such a hypocrite.
Babe: I am telling you the truth. If you want to punish me, fine. Do whatever you want, because God knows I deserve it. But you are going to be punishing an innocent child, too, the child that we both love and care for. Kelly, if James ends up with his father, we are both going to lose out.
Erica: I really am so sorry, J.R. I don't want to see you hurt. There's been more than enough pain for everyone in all this.
J.R.: It's got to be tough for you, too. Bianca lost her little girl, and now you're this close to losing yours. I know I would be kind of out of control if Bess was lying in a hospital.
Erica: Well, I'm very glad that you understand.
J.R.: And I hope that you understand. Babe is the villain, not me.
Erica: Adam, I meant what I said. I am sorry for J.R. and for you. Losing a baby is the most terrible thing on the face of the earth.
Adam: Save it, just save it, save it. And don't think for a minute that I buy your version of this tragedy, that J.R.'s baby is dead.
Erica: And yet, once again, you didn't tell J.R. why I'm really here.
Adam: I don't want to make him more upset than he already is.
Erica: Yes, J.R. is desperate to hold on to that baby, but you know the truth. You know that Miranda really belongs to Bianca. You know that Miranda is really a Kane. So tell me, Adam, are you going to do the right thing? Are you going to help me prove it? Adam, we have to do that test.
Adam: Did you see J.R.'s face when he talked about Bess? Nobody could love that child more than he does.
Erica: Except that baby's own mother, Bianca. I know you have doubts, too. I see it in your face. You know, too, that that baby belongs to Bianca. That's why you're fighting so hard.
Adam: I'm fighting for my family.
Erica: No, you don't want to face the truth. But at night, when you're alone, Adam, look at that baby. Look at that little girl's face. Look for some sign, some reassurance -- the shape of her chin, the color of her eyes, the way she moves her head -- any sign that will tell you she's a Chandler. Well, you won't find it, Adam, because it's not there!
Adam: I've already had my doubts and I've already dealt with them. In fact, I pulled a DNA sample from Bianca."
Erica: What did they tell you?
Adam: Nothing, because J.R. caught me in the act, and he made it quite clear that he would take Bess and leave this house forever if I tried to go through with it.
Erica: So now you're feeding his denial?
Adam: He worships Bess. I'm not going to be the one to look him in the eye and tell him his child is dead. I'm not going to serve him up with a memory of his baby drowning, fighting for its life, dying in that river!
Erica: Look, Adam, I know what you're afraid of about how J.R. is feeling. I know that. My God, when Bianca lost Miranda, it nearly tore us apart, but we found our way back to each other.
Adam: No, my son and your daughter couldn't be more different. No, my son would never forgive me.
Erica: You don't know that.
Adam: I can't risk it. Look around you. Do you see Colby? Seen Hayley lately? No. J.R. and Bess, J.R. and Bess are all I have left.
Erica: But you can't protect your son forever, Adam. The truth will come out. You know I won't let it go. I will get the proof we need, even if it means I tell J.R. that it was your idea.
Adam: Don't you even think about that, Erica. I'm warning you.
Erica: If it was you, if the tables were turned, you would move heaven and earth to get your own flesh and blood back where she belongs, so you better hang tight, Adam, because that is exactly what I plan to do.
Adam: All right, you've said what you came to say. Now get out.
Erica: And it's not just the baby I'm fighting for. It's Bianca. I am fighting for my daughter's life. This is not over.
Adam: Don't threaten me.
Erica: Oh, you know me. I don't just threaten. I follow through.
Adam: Do your worst.
Erica: No, I'll do my best. I promised my daughter I would put her baby back in her arms, and I will. I will get that baby back with or without your help. No, you will not be raising any Kane children in this house.
Babe: Kelly, if the police are brought into this, J.R. is going to find out that he has a son, and then all bets are going to be off, and that little boy is going to end up being raised by his father. He's going to be a Chandler heir. And they'll mold him and they'll form him.
Kelly: I'll fight them.
Babe: And you'll lose, just the same way that I did. Kelly, I know what is in store for him if he ends up with J.R. Can't you see that I'm trying to protect my baby? There's no laughter in that house. No joy. All it is is ambition and greed, and how long can a little boy stay innocent growing up in a household -- how -- how is he supposed to grow up to be the man that he's supposed to be when he has a father and a grandfather hovering over him where all they do is worship power and money? Sounds familiar?
Kelly: Oh, my God.
Babe: I kidnapped James for the exact same reasons that you took him from Kevin -- to save the little boy that we love.
Lily: After Bianca yelled at me at our family picnic, she told me how her baby, how Miranda died. She was so sad. I could tell because her mouth was down and her eyes were crying.
Jack: Well, yeah, honey, it was a very sad day for all of us.
Lily: But Miranda wouldn't have died if she had a life jacket. And I know there's no water here, but I still want Bianca to get saved. So I brought her this.
Lily: It's ok, isn't it, Dad?
Jack: Yeah, it's very ok. It's wonderful. Hey, Bianca, look what Lily brought you.
Reggie: No, no, wait, wait, wait. I got this one.
Zach: You think I fabricated information about Kendall to help my son?
Maria: Did you?
Zach: No, I did not. Kendall's been seeing a therapist. And that therapist prescribed the same medication that was found in large doses in Greenlee's bloodstream.
Maria: So what does that prove? That proves that you were able to steal confidential patient-doctor information?
Zach: That's the least of my worries.
Maria: Because if Ethan can beat the attempted murder rap and you can put Kendall in jail for drugging Greenlee, then there'll be no reason for Ethan to stay in town, right? Ok, well, what if Ethan decides to play the hero and he decides to stick around Pine Valley to try to prove that Kendall's innocent?
Zach: Then I will just have to leave no doubt in anyone's mind whether she is guilty or not.
Jonathan: Where's Chief Frye? Why aren't you going after a search warrant? Why don't we finally see what's been hiding in Kendall's medicine chest? Huh? Hello? No? I'll do it. I'll call the police.
Ryan: No, you won't, no, you won't, no, you won't. Look, if Kendall did drug Greenlee, for starters, she's not stupid enough to leave evidence lying around, and second of all, if there is anything to find, I'd bet the entire perfume line that Ramsey already took care of it.
Greenlee: Well, I have a third-of-all. Kendall's sister's hanging on by a thread. So let's just hold off on siccing the cops on her.
Jonathan: What are you talking about? Did something happen to Bianca?
Ryan: She fell off a balcony. We just found out. And they don't know if she's going to make it.
Kendall: I just got hit by something. I looked around in that room, and I realize how many people love my sister -- not just us, but everyone -- people who -- people who don't even know her, people who feel like they know her, like they're connected.
Reggie: I mean, you could talk to Bianca about anything, you know, good or bad, and everything's ok.
Kendall: Yeah, she sees us for who we really are. She loves us anyway. If she doesn't wake up, how can we be anything but lost?
Greenlee: You know, I don't know about you guys, but I'm going to check in on Bianca and my dad.
Ryan: Ok, I'll wait for you here.
Jonathan: It sucks that Bianca's hurt, but how can you just let Kendall off the hook? There's something else going on. Oh, my God. You're still in love with her.
Ryan: The only woman that I love is my wife.
Jonathan: I'm just saying that I --
Ryan: Don't, don't, all right, because there's no hard evidence that Kendall did anything to Greenlee, so I'm not about to shove it in her face like it's fact, certainly not when her sister's fighting for her life.
Jonathan: Ok, ok, ok. Look, I'm just worried about Greenlee here and --
Ryan: Yeah, that's my job. I will make sure that nobody gets close enough to Greenlee to hurt her again.
Kendall: See, Binks, you know how Mom is. If we don't rein her in, this wedding is going to get out of hand. Ok, here's my problem. I can talk and talk and talk, but she barely hears a word I say. Now, she listens to you -- steak or lobster, roses or orchids. If you're with me, together we can pull this off. We could put together a wedding that the whole town would remember. They would talk about it for years. All you got to do is help me. Just -- just take my hand and lead me along.
Ethan: Listen, why don't we take a walk to the cafeteria, go and get a little bite to eat or something?
Kendall: No, I'm not hungry.
Jack: Hey, you have to take care of yourself.
Reggie: Maybe I can get you something. Order a pizza?
Ethan: It's a good idea, but I think a change of scenery would be good.
Reggie: The hospital cafeteria?
Ethan: It's the best I can do with what I got. Should we go?
Jack: I'll make sure somebody's with her.
Ethan: Come on.
Lily: Bianca looks just like Sleeping Beauty.
Reggie: It's going to take a lot more than a kiss to wake that princess up. More like some heavy-duty magic.
Jack: Sweetheart, where have you been?
Erica: I went to see Adam. Not that it did any good.
Adam: You trying to save Santa a trip?
J.R.: I'm Bess' Santa Claus. You want to help me?
Adam: Me? No. I wrap packages about as well as I cook a goose.
J.R.: Oh, come on, Dad. I'm trying to get you in the Christmas spirit. This could be the best Christmas ever. It's Bess' first. You, me, my little girl -- oh, our first Christmas together as a family.
Babe: You and I have a lot in common, Kelly. We both love that little boy, and we want to protect him.
Kelly: Of course I do.
Babe: What's wrong?
Jamie: I don't know, I don't know. He was fine. He was about to drift off, then all of a sudden --
Babe: Oh, my God. Oh, my God, he's burning up.
Kelly: Is he ok? What are you going to do?
Babe: I'm going to take him to a doctor.
Jamie: We passed a hospital. It's not far.
Babe: Let's just go.
Kelly: If you take him to the hospital, they could recognize you. You could lose him.
Babe: I don't even care. He's sick. Kelly, you can call the police, call the Marines, do whatever you want, but I just got to make sure my little boy's ok.
Ryan: Hey, how is she?
Greenlee: No change. You called off the cavalry, huh?
Ryan: Oh, yeah. My little brother's not very happy, but I got him to chill out for a little while.
Greenlee: Good, because I don't think Kendall did it.
Ryan: Do you know who did?
Greenlee: No. But something just happened right now. I saw Kendall with Bianca, and don't ask me why, but I get this really strong feeling she's not the one.
Kendall: Ethan, wait.
Ethan: For what?
Kendall: I can't. I can't. I mean, what if something happens? If she wakes up, I want to be nearby.
Ethan: Ok. Ok, ok. That's -- that's fine. I'll put in a phone call to the Valley Inn and order some comfort food, ok?
Kendall: Ok, that works for me.
Kendall: Um, Ethan, wait.
Kendall: I don't know how I would have ever gotten through this if you hadn't been here for me. How can I ever repay you?
Ethan: Oh, hey. Don't be silly. I'm here, and I'm not leaving you. So get used to me, ok?
Maria: Zach, when does this stop? Why do you have to destroy Kendall's life?
Zach: I thought you understood.
Maria: No, well, obviously, I don't, because so what if Ethan stays here in Pine Valley? Look, your father is dead. Michael is dead. The only other link to anything Cambias other than you is Miranda, and she's gone. There's no other shred of DNA here in Pine Valley to trip you up. Why are you so threatened?
Zach: I want Ethan to get on with his life.
Maria: Right, but as long as you can control and decide where and when and what that life is. Maybe he should be here in Pine Valley, and this -- why can't you look at this as an opportunity to build a relationship with him? You could get close to your son without him knowing the truth.
Zach: I cannot, I can't.
Zach: I don't know why. Maybe it's Kendall, maybe it's something else. But I have a feeling that there's something in this town that's going to trap my son. And I'm going to get him out of here before that happens.
Erica: So, I tried to talk some sense into him, but you know Adam.
Jack: Well, now, what if he tells J.R. what you're up to? J.R. could grab Miranda, make a run for it?
Erica: No, Tad has J.R. under surveillance. If J.R. tries anything funny at all, he won't even get past the driveway. I had no choice. I have to prove that that little girl is Miranda, and Adam is the only one who can sign off on that DNA test that J.R. would believe.
Jack: But Adam is not going to do that, and now you're out of options.
Erica: Well, I'm not giving up. I'm going to find another way.
Adam: No, you won't. I'm in. I'll do it.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Autumn: Red alert, Lily.
Jamie: Babe, there's something you need to know about Bianca.
J.R.: Oh -- I hope I'm not breaking in on something.
Adam: I have to know the truth, like it or not.
