All My Children Transcript Wednesday 12/29/04
Proofread by Gisele
Ryan: Wait, here's one. "Specimen retrieval specialist at a bull stud farm."
Greenlee: Get out! Do I even want to know how they do that?
Ryan: Ok, it doesn't matter because you need a degree in animal husbandry.
Greenlee: What's the problem? My husband's a total animal.
Ryan: Yeah, you got that right.
Greenlee: Oh, God!
Ryan: Wait, how about a dog-walking company?
Greenlee: We could start our own -- Laverys' loving leashes. "Let us pamper your pooch."
Ryan: I see franchises nationwide.
Greenlee: And Canada.
Ryan: You do think big. Canada?
Jonathan: Hey, guys. You think you're having fun, wait until you see these, ok? Enchantment sales figures from the last quarter.
Greenlee: Oh, those little things?
Ryan: Sorry, Hocket, I'm in the market for a new career.
Greenlee: He's going to be a stud -- or something like that.
Jonathan: Yeah, running a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate can really drag you down.
Ryan: No, I'm serious, man. Miracles change everything.
Greenlee: You were there. Miranda Montgomery isn't dead.
Ryan: The rightful heir is alive and kicking and back with her mom, and I'm a man without a company.
Anita: A royal suite for a miracle mom.
Bianca: Oh, my goodness. This is awesome!
Anita: I'm glad you like it.
Reggie: There's a whole other room in here.
Anita: Oh, yeah, that's for you or Kendall or anybody else who wants to sleep over.
Kendall: All right, I'm there. It's mine.
Anita: And check this out, the best part -- so Miranda can snuggle up in here and never have to leave your side, or we can always take her in there if you need your rest. Either way, she's never more than a whisper away.
Bianca: I'm completely speechless, Anita. You outdid yourself.
Anita: Oh, well, it's not me. Erica's the queen of making things happen. She insisted on the very best of everything as long as we keep you here.
Bianca: Well, make that as short as you keep me here. I intend to take this little girl home just as soon as I possibly can.
Kendall: As soon as the doctors say you're allowed to. No arguments.
Reggie: Yeah, and I'm with Kendall, so --
Bianca: You know what? You're right. Hey, what's my rush? I have everything that I could possibly want. Hey, Reggie, do you want to maybe hold her for a minute while I get into bed?
Reggie: You sure?
Bianca: Here you go. Say hi to Reggie.
Reggie: Just like a little princess, straight out of a fairy tale. Oh, you're so beautiful. It's just you and your mom now. You guys call all the shots. No more dragons, no more nasty little ogres.
Adam: J.R., why don't you come on downstairs and get yourself something to eat? Lucretia made something. You can't spend your entire life in this room, son. J.R., I know you feel betrayed. You loved that little girl, and I helped them take her away from you. So come on, do whatever you have to do. Take a shot at me. Spit in my face, right between my eyes. Just get it out of your system before it eats you up from the inside. Don't shut me out of your life, J.R., I'm begging you.
Lily: I don't get this. It says, "The way Dack Masters looked at Nicole caused butterflies in her heart." That sounds dangerous, like the guy in the movie with the aliens that we saw the other night.
Danielle: It's just an expression. They don't mean real butterflies. It just feels like butterflies. Like her heart's all fluttery because this girl obviously thinks Dack is the bomb. It's love. Or at least heat. Not a real bomb. Ok, it's your turn. What's the cosine of the square root of 893?
Danielle: Damn, girl. How do you do that?
Lily: Once I know the formulas, the answers just kind of appear in my head.
[Knock on door]
Danielle: I wish I was as smart as you.
Aidan: I just thought I'd pop by to see how you're doing.
Lily: How I'm doing what?
Aidan: I mean, how you're feeling after the other day, after what happened.
Lily: Oh. I think I'm feeling a butterfly.
Danielle: Well, don't make him stand out there. Come in.
Aidan: I just thought I'd come and see how Lily is.
Danielle: She's good, aren't you, Lily?
Lily: I'm good.
Danielle: Way to smack down the hot girls.
Aidan: You know what? I actually don't think they're all that hot.
Lily: Thank you, Aidan, for the sunglasses. I only have to wear them when I see red and my head hurts.
Aidan: Well, that's good, because you've got beautiful eyes and it'd be a crime to have them covered up.
Danielle: She could really use the shades now if she went near a mirror. Look how red she is.
Aidan: Well, I meant it. I think Lily is a very special girl. What you got there, Lily? You reading more "Dack Masters"?
Lily: Do you read him, too?
Aidan: I must have missed that one. Well, I won't keep you.
Lily: Wait. This is yours.
Aidan: Do you like it?
Lily: Yes. It's very warm, and it smells so good.
Aidan: Well, why don't you keep it? Consider it a late Christmas present from me to you.
Lily: Thank you.
Aidan: You're welcome, Lily.
Danielle: Lucky you.
Aidan: Well, see you later, guys.
Lily: Bye, Aidan.
Danielle: That is one cutie-licious member of the male species.
Lily: Delicious? Like chocolate?
Danielle: No, not chocolate. More like a very fine French vanilla with butterscotch sauce. Ignore me. Just another silly expression.
Greenlee: You're about to sign away billions of dollars, give up the company jet, the limos, the expense account to join the unemployment line, and I'm still nuts about you.
Jonathan: Ok. Hey, hello? Before you guys take this to the bedroom -- do you mind explaining the logic in this?
Ryan: Well, short version -- they ran a DNA test on Bess Chandler, proved it was Miranda Montgomery, granddaughter of Alexander Cambias and, thanks to his will, the rightful heir. So I'm signing everything over to a very rich and very, very lucky little baby girl.
Greenlee: I'm already thinking of ways to budget. >From now on, champagne and caviar only on the weekends.
Jonathan: It isn't funny. We just went through this with Ethan Ramsey, and you fought like hell to hold on to your company. You can't just hand over your company.
Ryan: Watch me, with a big old smile on my face.
Jonathan: How can you say that?
Ryan: Hey, man, if me giving up billions will mean Bianca gets her baby back, it's a bargain at twice the price.
Anita: Come on, Reggie, I'll show you the setup in the other room.
Bianca: Well, that's cool with me, but she stays here.
Reggie: I'll be right back. Here you go.
Bianca: Thank you. Hi, sweetness. Reggie will be right back. You want to be with me? Hey.
Bianca: What's this?
Kendall: You're real. Both of you -- both of you are real. I'm sorry, I just have to keep checking every now and then.
Bianca: I know. Pretty amazing, isn't it?
Kendall: It almost didn't happen because of me.
Bianca: Because of you?
Kendall: Well, back in Florida, J.R. begged me not to let you see Babe, and if I had listened to him --
Bianca: Oh, Kendall, but you didn't listen to him. You chose me.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I would choose you over anyone any day. I almost thought I lost you. I can't tell you how unbearable that was.
Bianca: Oh, Kendall. Come here. You know you can't get rid of me that easily.
Kendall: Hmm. I just love you so much.
Bianca: I love you, too.
Adam: I'm sure it's too much to expect you to understand why I did what I did. It was not an easy decision. By the end of the day, I just couldn't deny the truth. I love you, J.R. I couldn't bear to see you suffer day after day, trying to push away the inevitable. I know how it feels to lose a child. It's like a knife cutting through your heart. And you -- you are mourning two children, the little girl that you loved and the son you never knew. J.R., the way you feel about your son, that's the way I feel about you. You are my son. You're my only son. And I'm so proud of you. And I love you. And I guess the most I can hope for is that one day you realize that what I did, I did out of that love.
Kendall: Oh, you. Auntie Kendall here. Yes, you sweet little thing. The sweetest. Sweetest. Yes. Do you -- do you remember any of it? The hotel room or the fall?
Bianca: It's hazy.
Kendall: Well, you were with J.R. Oh, God, tell me he didn't push you, Bianca. Tell me it was an accident.
Bianca: I -- I don't know. I don't really remember. I mean, I remember screaming at him, "Give me my baby," and he said no. He wouldn't give her to me.
Adam: J.R., the days ahead are going to be difficult ones, but I can help you. We can work this out together as a family. And maybe then --
J.R.: Get out.
Adam: J.R., let me help you.
J.R.: Just get out!
Bianca: No. No, I don't think that J.R. pushed me off the balcony.
Kendall: Well, that's -- that's what J.R. said. The way he tells it, he said that you got hysterical and you lost your balance, the railing gave way, and you fell.
Bianca: Yeah. You know, that's probably how it happened. See, I -- he wouldn't give me the baby. I kept telling him to let me have her, and he said that she wasn't mine. He just -- he refused to believe it, but there was no way that I could let him out of the room with my little girl. So -- I don't think that J.R. meant to hurt me.
Kendall: Good. Good. Well -- well, now you don't have to worry about anything. It's over. It's done with. Everything is exactly the way that it should be, and you are just surrounded everywhere by people who love you and people who you love.
Jonathan: You -- you can just walk away?
Ryan: Well, I mean, I'll help Bianca through the transition if she asks me to, but, you know, the board was never really all that crazy about me, and she'd be smart to listen to them, so -- you can apply for a job. You know, but with the Lavery name, you might be dead in that group. Hey, you did sock some away, didn't you?
Jonathan: That's not it. I don't understand you. After everything that we used to talk about, where we came from -- you're doing it, Ryan. You hit it large, and you're just going to -- this is just -- this is wrong. This is wrong.
Ryan: Hey, Greenlee and I will be fine. All right, bud? And you, you'll find something.
Jonathan: You're going to hand your company over to a rapist's baby! Ok, Michael Cambias wins if you sign everything over to his bastard child!
Ryan: Slow down, all right? That's out of line!
Greenlee: Bianca is my cousin. She's going to be my sister soon. That makes that baby my family, too, so don't ever call her a bastard.
Ryan: You just don't get it. You know, you don't get it. I mean, you weren't around when all this happened. You don't know Bianca very well, everything she went through, and how she suffered. She deserved a miracle. I prayed for her to have one. This is good news! And we're going to be fine. We're young, we're healthy, we're talented, if I do say so myself. We'll land on our feet.
Jonathan: You're right. I just don't get it.
Ryan: Hocket, come on -- where you going?
Kendall: Ok, you know what? Why don't I come back in a little while?
Bianca: Ok, thanks.
Kendall: Ok, I'll see you later.
Maggie: I wasn't sure if you were up for visitors.
Bianca: Only special ones.
Maggie: You have your little girl back.
Bianca: I know.
Maggie: May I?
Bianca: Yes, of course.
Maggie: Hi! Hey, little pumpkin, come here. Come here. Oh, goodness! Hi! I remember when you were just a little fuzzy little blotch in a sonogram. Oh. Mmm. That's it. That's the picture I had in my mind nine months ago, the way it's supposed to be.
Bianca: She's pretty amazing, isn't she?
Maggie: Not just her.
Bianca: I know. I can't stop smiling. It's like somebody gave me my heart back. Everything I ever wanted, right here in my arms.
Maggie: Where she belongs.
Danielle: I wonder if Reggie plans on staying at the hospital all day -- not that he shouldn't be celebrating down there with Bianca and the miracle baby.
Lily: I like it when he's here.
Danielle: I do, too. Even though your brother's a major pain sometimes, but he's ok to be around. He likes being around you, too, hon. We all do. You make our mouths turn up.
Lily: Can you teach me?
Danielle: Teach you what?
Lily: What to do, what to wear, and how to act so that I'm friendly and smart, and not ready to have sex, but ready to be in love.
Kendall: Bianca's going to be all right. It was the baby. Miranda saved her.
Kendall: Is he upstairs?
Adam: Yeah. In the nursery.
Kendall: I'd ask if you want company, but I know better. So you're going to have to put up with me, anyway.
Anita: Up for some lunch, little mama?
Bianca: Oh, you know what, I'm actually hungrier than I even thought.
Maggie: Ok, well, I'll let you guys eat in peace.
Bianca: Ok, but you'll come back, right?
Maggie: As often as you want me. Bye, precious.
Reggie: Oh, Maggie, do you got a minute?
Maggie: Yeah. Come on.
Reggie: All right, Maggie, what's the deal? Did you tell him to lie to me or what?
Maggie: I don't know what you're talking about.
Reggie: I'm talking about your boyfriend, Jonathan.
Maggie: What about him?
Reggie: Maggie, I know you're a straight woman, ok? You don't want Bianca anymore, but why are you with that jerk? You're settling. You can do so much better.
Maggie: What's with the attack, Reggie? He never did anything to you.
Reggie: Oh, so you don't know he lied to me?
Maggie: About what?
Reggie: I came by to see why you wasn't visiting Bianca in the hospital. He said you already knew about it, that you were at the library studying. And next thing I know, you're already at the house. What's up with that?
Maggie: That can't be.
Reggie: Exactly how it happened. Look, did you or did you not tell him to lie to me, or is he scamming us both?
Maggie: Don't talk to me about my boyfriend like that, Reggie. You know, if he did what you said, then he was probably just protecting me because I've actually been under a lot of stress. But no way do you get the right to attack him because you want me to hook up with Bianca.
Reggie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, this has nothing to do with Bianca. This is about you and some guy that's trying to scam you!
Maggie: No one's messing with me, Reggie.
Reggie: Right. Excuse me. You know, I thought we were friends. But, yeah, just check that out before you end up on the wrong side of sorry, ok?
Greenlee: I just don't get your brother. I've tried to break through that brick wall he's got going on --
Ryan: I know he's not easy. He gets emotional, you know, and he's got a tough time opening up.
Greenlee: Why is he taking your whole empire thing so personally?
Ryan: My best guess is, is because we used to make up stories. We used to dream about becoming incredibly successful and leaving that hellhole and never going back, except to rub it in the faces of the people that told us that we weren't good enough. We'd have freedom, we'd have fame, and we would have money to burn, and there would be nobody to tell us no.
Greenlee: Isn't that the basic fantasy of kids?
Ryan: It wasn't a fantasy. It was a way to stay sane. You see, we would spend our future millions out in the shed, where we couldn't hear our brother screaming from our father beating him.
Greenlee: I'm sorry, Ryan. I hate what you had to go through.
Ryan: Yeah, me, too. But I learned to deal with it a lot quicker than Jonathan. I mean, he's still dealing with it. But I figured the more that we would work together, the more that he would just kind of mellow out and appreciate what he's got, instead of thinking that, you know, he's not there yet, be more secure.
Greenlee: And not so angry.
Ryan: And I would really like him to be part of whatever we get going on.
Greenlee: Because you owe him?
Ryan: No, because I love him.
Kendall: I'm sorry, J.R. I am so, so sorry about your baby boy.
J.R.: No, don't. Don't even bother. You're not even sorry a little bit. You're getting ready to throw a party. Everyone is. I'm the only one who's mourning. This is payback, bigtime, for all my sins. I'm evil.
Kendall: Are you?
J.R.: What are you doing here?
Kendall: To find out exactly how evil you are. Tell me you didn't know, J.R. Say that you had no idea that that was my sister's baby, because I swear to God, if I thought for one second you knew that that was Bianca's baby and you didn't say anything, I will kill you.
Bianca: I thought that I'd lost everything. But my greatest love was right there around the corner waiting for me.
Anita: Well, in case I forget to mention it, I'm very happy for you.
Bianca: Well, I promise you, Anita, yours is waiting for you, too.
Anita: Oh, well, I'm not going to argue that. Turns out I was right, though, the night I left you in our nursery.
Bianca: I'm still sorry you got in trouble because of me.
Anita: Oh, honey, please. What I went through doesn't compare with what you've had to deal with. Yeah.
Bianca: And it's gone forever. I'm never going to get it back. Those first nine months of her life, I was just a visitor. And all those days, every hour, all those precious first moments -- I missed them, and I'll never get them back. You know, when Kendall was here, I couldn't say this, but when I first woke up out of the coma and I looked down and I saw this little girl in my arms, I felt so happy that I thought that my heart would just burst. And then I felt the anger. And I can't let go of it. This little girl was kept from me. And I don't think I'm ever going to get over that.
Ryan: You're still bugged. Jonathan, right?
Greenlee: He just seems -- I don't know, a little bent.
Ryan: Yeah, it runs in the family.
Greenlee: No, no, you're fun bent. Jonathan always feels like he's carrying something that's too heavy.
Ryan: Old baggage.
Greenlee: And a big honking chip on his shoulder. No offense.
Ryan: It's all about where we come from. It's about kids living in a constant state of fear. You see, I learned never to let myself get put into a corner, always have an escape route. That's how I took the nightmare that we lived in and I made it work for me. But, you know, Jonathan's still waiting to hear what no Lavery ever did -- that he's a good kid -- that Patrick Lavery is proud of him. All we ever heard was that "you're stupid." "You're a moron." "You disappointed me" was one of his favorites. And it kind of made your heart stop because you always knew what was coming next. He'd say, "You and me, we got something to straighten out, buddy." And he would take off his leather belt and then he would beat us.
Greenlee: That's beyond awful, Ryan. I'm sorry.
Ryan: Just understand, ok? Just understand that's where -- that's where it comes from, this bent side of Jonathan. He's never stopped trying to prove himself to his old man.
Maggie: We need to talk.
Jonathan: If this is about your books, I said I was sorry.
Maggie: Why didn't you tell me Bianca was in the hospital?
Jonathan: We're not going to do this tonight, Maggie, so let it go.
Maggie: "We're not going to do this tonight"? You did something awful, and I want to know why.
Jonathan: I guess I'm an awful guy.
Maggie: You let me sit up all night and work on a paper when my best friend could have been dying! That's why you had the brilliant idea to unplug the phone, isn't it? God, what were you thinking?
Jonathan: I'm having a really bad today, ok? I just need some time to sit around and deal, so tonight is off-limits! You know what? Saint Bianca's fine. She's better than fine. Your little sweetheart gets all the prizes, while the rest of us can eat her dust.
Maggie: How can you be so mean? You really resent her that much? Jonathan, do you even know how disappointed I am in you?
Kendall: No one should mourn alone. J.R., when I thought that Miranda was dead, there's no pain like that in the whole world. But I swear, if you knew that Bess was Miranda and you didn't say anything, then you deserve every second of this hell that you're living.
J.R.: I didn't believe it! I swear that I didn't believe a word of it. I just thought it was another one of Babe's lies. She lies, and she leaves more dead bodies behind. But this -- this is so --
Kendall: Are you telling me the truth, J.R.?
J.R.: I swear, Kendall, I would never hurt Bianca. She fell. She fell by herself. I would never do that. I just -- I just couldn't understand. I just couldn't accept the fact that Bess -- that Bess -- you know what? Ahem. You came here and you saw what you needed to see. You got what you want, so why don't you just go, ok? Why don't you go be happy with Bianca and just leave me alone?
Kendall: No. No, no, I'm not going to leave you alone. I'm here now. I am here now. I am still your friend. And I'm not going to let you suffer alone in this.
J.R.: I just couldn't accept that it was true, Kendall.
Bianca: You know, Babe was my best friend, and I just couldn't imagine being betrayed by somebody that I loved that much.
Anita: Well, it takes time to accept that. Believe me, that's something I know.
Aidan: All right, all right, all right. Or should I say, "ho, ho, ho"? Am I late?
Anita: It's never too late for Christmas.
Bianca: Miranda, look! It's Santa Claus!
Aidan: Miss Bianca Montgomery, I've been elected by many of your good friends and dear ones to be your personal Santa Claus.
Bianca: No way!
Bianca: Look, Miranda!
Aidan: What do we have in here?
Bianca: Look. Presents!
Aidan: Presents from those people who love you.
Bianca: Look how shiny this is.
Danielle: Lily, is there a guy you have feelings for?
Lily: I'm not sure. What kind of feelings do you mean?
Danielle: Ok. Let's pretend that this is a math problem. We'll isolate and define the variables, ok?
Danielle: Awesome. So, there's your dad and Reggie, and you like to hang around them because they're nice and they treat you well and they're fun and they're easy to talk to.
Lily: They're my family.
Danielle: Right. And then there's a guy that you just shoot the breeze with. That you can talk about what happened on the last episode of "Lost," but you're really not too concerned about what brand of toothpaste they use.
Lily: Is that important?
Danielle: Hopefully not yet. The only thing that is important is the third category, and that's the dude that rocks your world. Everything makes you think about him. You write his name on your notebook, like, a million times, and you pass by his homeroom just to see if you can catch a glimpse of him. And everything -- everything reminds you of him. There's no such thing as too much of this boy.
Lily: That's how it feels.
Danielle: Then that's the ceiling you're staring up at, girl, because you've just fallen hard. So, do I know him? Did you meet him at school or what?
Lily: It's him.
Danielle: "Him"? "Him" who? "Him"? "Him" as in Aidan?
Aidan: You know, I'm so glad things turned out good for you, Bianca.
Bianca: You're a romantic, aren't you, Aidan?
Aidan: I don't know. I have my moments. Speaking of which -- I try and make a point of kissing any pretty physician's assistant as soon as I can.
Bianca: Well, looks like good things are on the way for you, too.
Greenlee: I didn't mean to come down so hard on your brother.
Ryan: No, I understand. I understand. He's not easy. I was actually thinking about Miranda.
Greenlee: Then you ought to be smiling.
Ryan: Yeah. I just -- I have something that's shaking around in my head.
Ryan: She's the Cambias heir now. The money's all hers.
Greenlee: Mm-hmm, the way you wanted it.
Ryan: Yeah. Except somebody shot me to try and get that fortune, so what does that mean for her?
Kendall: Come on. Come on, J.R., don't do this. Ok, you shouldn't have to suffer alone. Let's do this together. Now, you were right. Babe was an unfit mother. She was a piece of garbage wife and she was nobody's friend. And after what she did to Bianca, I can't even think of a punishment painful enough for her. I'll tell you one thing, if she ever shows her stupid little face in Pine Valley again, she will find out just how much I hate her.
J.R.: Oh, no. No, no, Kendall. You let me handle Babe. Her pain is all that I live for.
Maggie: After everything, you're still jealous of Bianca.
Jonathan: I'm not jealous of any girl!
Maggie: Then what's your problem?
Jonathan: Shut up, Maggie.
Maggie: Why didn't you tell me Reggie was here? You lied to me!
Jonathan: I said shut up, Maggie!
Maggie: You get something straight -- you don't decide who I can or can't see! What you did was stupid and childish!
Jonathan: I said shut up!
[Jonathan loses control and smacks Maggie in the face]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam: What the devil are you doing here?
Erica: Adam, I want to help.
Anita: I want to do something crazy, wild. Any ideas?
Jonathan: Maggie, I love you. I love you. You know that.
Bianca: Let's talk about what you did to me and my baby.
