All My Children Transcript Thursday 12/30/04
Proofread by Gisele
Maggie: 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]
Jonathan: Oh, my God.
Maggie: Don't touch me!
Jonathan: Maggie, no �
Man: Harry Tucker, here you go.
Jamie: [Disguised voice] Man, is it always so hot this time of year?
Man: No, y'all are just lucky.
Jamie: Oh, well, too bad our heater can't read a thermometer.
Man: It's going to be a while before I can get those new IDs to you, so why don't you just head on over to the Cajun Bayou Café. You tell Archie you want the shrimp Bellaire, and enjoy the New Year, New Orleans style.
Babe: We will. Thank you.
Man: See you around, Harry, Faith.
Jamie: [Normal voice] We get those new IDs and a new car, next stop, Hope, Arkansas.
Babe: We can pull this off, right?
Jamie: I have zero doubts.
Babe: How can you be so sure?
Jamie: It's easy, darling -- I have Faith and I live in Hope.
[J.R. sits in the darkened nursery alone]
Babe's voice: That night on the mountain when the helicopter crashed, it was our baby, our little boy who died. Miranda survived. Bess is Bianca�s daughter.
Jamie's voice: You heard enough already, and it's only going to make it worse because the truth is buzzing in your head. You just can't accept it yet.
J.R.�s voice: You get Babe to shut her mouth, you might just --
Jamie�s voice: Nothing will stop Babe. She's giving Bianca the truth about Bess -- that she's Bianca�s child, J.R., not yours.
Adam: What the devil are you doing here?
Erica: I came to see how you're doing.
Adam: How do you think?
Erica: I know what you and J.R. are going through.
Adam: Oh, like hell you do.
Erica: Adam, I want to help, if you'll let me.
Anita: You have a serious haul.
Bianca: Well, I've got the best Christmas present ever right here.
David: May we come in?
Bianca: Um, Anita, would you do me a big favor and take Miranda into the other room?
Anita: Absolutely, I'll take her. Come here.
Krystal: We can come back.
Bianca: Uh-uh. Now's fine. Let's talk about what you did to me and my baby.
Jamie: So, what do you want to do for New Year's, I mean, besides sweat?
Babe: It is the Big Easy. We don't have to do anything. The party hasn't even stopped since we got here. And it is much safer just to hang out with James. I guess we could always throw some beads at the crazies down there.
Babe: Oh. You know, there is one thing that we have to do before we start this party.
Jamie: Take cold showers?
Babe: No, New Year's resolutions.
Jamie: Right. You know, it's too hot to be thinking about a bunch of things I'm going to break in the end anyways.
Babe: I'm not breaking mine. I have just one. I'm going to be the best mama that our baby could ever have.
Jamie: See there? You stole mine. I'm going to be an awesome dad, just as if James was my own.
Babe: Hey. You already are.
Jamie: I haven't even started. I mean, on top of all the Christmas promises, I got to teach James how to ride a bike, how to make a three-point shot, how to --
Babe: Fix things around the house?
Jamie: And to always have a plan B. New Year's resolution number two, make my own climate control.
Adam: It's playing out exactly as I feared. He's holed up in the nursery, completely shut down.
Erica: Well, he's lost so much, I mean, his own son and Miranda.
Adam: Yeah, well --
Erica: Maybe with time, maybe with understanding --
Adam: Yeah, why don't you run out and buy him a kitten?
Erica: Maybe together we could help him.
Adam: Thanks for the thought, but even the great Erica Kane can't fix this.
Erica: I'm sorry, Adam.
Adam: The hell you are. This is nothing but a victory dance.
Erica: No, Bianca may have gotten Miranda back, but we all have suffered because of Babe.
Adam: Yeah, aided and abetted by Krystal and Hayward.
Erica: Yes, what they have done to us. Please, Adam, please just let me help you and J.R.
Adam: You've helped enough. Now, leave!
J.R.: Erica. Please, don't go.
Erica: J.R. I'm sure that I'm the last person on earth you want to see.
J.R.: No, I'm glad to see you. In fact, I was just about to have Winifred give me something to eat. Would you like to join me?
Erica: I'd be happy to stay for a few minutes.
J.R.: Please, sit.
J.R.: How's Bianca?
Erica: Oh, that's the best news. Bianca is out of her coma. Yeah. They say she's going to be fine, and even the doctors are calling it a miracle!
J.R.: That is terrific. When you see Bianca, I wish her and her baby all the best.
Bianca: How could you do it, David?
David: I hate what I did. I hate myself for doing it.
Bianca: Didn't stop you. How could you lie to me? How could you keep my daughter from me for months.
David: My daughter. I did it to protect Babe.
Bianca: You let me think that my daughter was dead.
David: I always meant for you and Miranda to end up together. That was always the plan. But short-term, yes, I put Babe first.
Krystal: The last thing we wanted was to keep you from your baby.
David: I am sorry, Bianca, for the way this all played out. But I did what I needed to to keep Babe safe.
Bianca: Why are you here? What is it that you want from me? Do you want my forgiveness? You want me to tell you that everything is ok now, that I don't hold a grudge because I finally got my baby back? Well, I'm sorry, not going to happen.
Anita: Yeah. Oh.
Aidan: She's pretty, isn't she, just like her mum.
Anita: Aidan, I didn't hear you come in.
Anita: Didn't you leave?
Aidan: Yeah, I did, but I -- I forgot something. What are you doing around midnight?
Anita: Well, wouldn't you know, knee-deep in New Year's dates, like to here. Sorry.
Aidan: Oh, never mind because I've got a bevy full of ladies lined up from the Pine Cone to the highway, so never mind.
Anita: Wait, hold it right there, mister. I've got nothing to do but wash my hair.
Aidan: Good. Then what kind of party animal am I dealing with? Champagne, dinner, and a dance at the Valley Inn, or are you the kind of girl that likes to get takeout and watch the ball drop in front of the TV?
Anita: Oh, no, forget the ball. I want fireworks.
Aidan: Well, that can be arranged.
Anita: From the Tower of London. Come on, you up for a trip to jolly old England?
Danielle: You want Aidan Devane?
Lily: You've asked me that six times.
Danielle: Because you've got to be kidding.
Lily: That means you think I'm making a joke.
Danielle: Please tell me you are.
Lily: I'm not. I don't know how to make jokes, and if I did, I wouldn't be joking about my boyfriend.
Danielle: Lily, Aidan�s not your boyfriend.
Lily: Not yet.
Danielle: Wait a minute, hold on.
Lily: To what?
Danielle: I mean, you and Aidan -- I really don't think it's going to fly. You know, work out.
Lily: Because I have Autism Spectrum Disorder and he doesn't?
Danielle: He's just so much older than you.
Lily: That doesn't matter. I took Sex Ed class and they taught me what happens between males and females. They didn't say anything about age.
Danielle: Sex Ed? Whoa, whoa, whoa, we got to back up here. I'm not ready to hear this. No way, no how.
Lily: I told you, I don't want sex. I just want to hook up with Aidan. Did I say that wrong?
Danielle: Well, it depends on whom you're saying it to. Lily, I really think that you should rethink this, think it through.
Lily: I have. Aidan will be a good boyfriend. He's smart and cute, and he told me I have beautiful eyes, and he smells so clean.
Danielle: He's all that, but I really don't think it's enough --
Lily: He saved me from the hot girls and their red paint. He makes me feel safe.
Danielle: Oh, thank God.
Reggie: Damn, baby, you miss me that bad? I haven't been gone that long. What's up, ladies? Hmm -- your color, definitely not your size.
Lily: I have to go.
Reggie: What's the rush?
Lily: I have to go hook up with my boyfriend.
Reggie: Over my dead body.
Jonathan: Maggie? Maggie.
Maggie: You hit me.
Jonathan: I'm so sorry.
Maggie: You hit me.
Jonathan: No, you -- sorry. Oh, God. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
J.R.: I remember how much you like this tea.
Erica: This is very kind of you, J.R. and I will certainly give Bianca your best wishes.
J.R.: Bianca is my oldest friend. I prayed for her every day.
Erica: And I truly believe that Miranda brought Bianca back. I mean, Bianca was slipping away, and Dr. Grey was actually preparing us for the worst. Well, I really believe that Miranda brought Bianca back.
Adam: You're very fortunate.
Erica: I know that it's small comfort to you, and especially to you, J.R. I know how much you've suffered -- your own son and Miranda. Look, I just want you to know that Bianca and I are forever grateful to you.
J.R.: Well, there's -- there's no need to thank me.
Erica: This isn't just small talk, J.R. I mean it. I want to show my gratitude to you. I know how deeply you love Miranda, and I don't see any reason why you need to be cut off from her.
Adam: Perhaps now is not the time to bring this up.
Erica: I really hope that someday, Bianca will agree to allow you to spend some time with Miranda.
J.R.: I never want to see that child again. More tea?
Bianca: After the rape, when I found out that I was pregnant and I realized how much I loved my baby and I decided that I wanted to have her, you were there. Do you remember that? You took care of me and my baby. God, you were my rock. You kept my secret. In the beginning, I felt so alone, but you were the one person that I knew I could trust, the one person who would be there for me no matter what.
David: If there was any other way, Bianca --
Bianca: There was. You could have given me my baby as soon as you found out that she was alive, but you didn't! We mourned Leora together. Do you remember that, David? So I know that you lived the hell that you put me through, and you didn't even care.
Krystal: He did care. He did. He wanted to tell you so badly!
David: Stop. Don't defend me.
Krystal: I was the one who sucked him into this!
Bianca: How could you do it? How could you do it, honestly? How could you do that to me? How could you let me go through one more second mourning my daughter when you knew that she was alive? My God, losing Leora ripped you apart! And yet you let me live with that pain month after month after month. You held my hand. Yeah, cry. Please cry. I want to see you cry. You held my hand, you -- you said all the right things to me, you were always there for me with an encouraging word and a hug, and the whole time you knew that my daughter was alive! I will never forget that, David, and I will never forgive you.
Lily: So you're not going to die?
Reggie: No, Lily, I swear I'm not going to die. What I meant was there's no way I'm letting you visit some boyfriend.
Lily: Why not?
Reggie: Dani, a little help here, please?
Danielle: You're the big brother. I already tried.
Reggie: Ok, the whole boyfriend-girlfriend thing is real -- it's complicated.
Danielle: You complaining?
Reggie: No. No, dear. Ok, what I meant to say was it's -- you've accomplished so much this year. I mean, you moved in here, you're mainstreaming school. Lily, you've been totally awesome, and I just don't think you're ready to -- to take on something as heavy as a boyfriend, as great as it can be to have one.
Lily: Lots of girls have boyfriends -- younger girls, too.
Reggie: Boys aren't like Fibonacci numbers. There isn't any set pattern or a formula you have to follow. Anything could happen, and I just don't want you to get hurt.
Lily: So? I still want one. I'm going for it.
Reggie: Lily, wait. What did you say to her?
Danielle: I didn't say anything. She did all the talking, and you'll never guess who the lucky hookup is.
Reggie: Somebody I could whup up on.
Danielle: Aidan Devane.
Reggie: Devane? He's pushing 25! He's practically an old man!
Danielle: Lily doesn't care. He's smart, he's cute, and he smells good. He saved her from the hot girls.
Reggie: Ok, look, this is crazy. We're going to have to talk her out of this.
Danielle: Your gig, but I'll beam good thoughts.
Reggie: Thanks a lot, Dani. Thanks a lot.
Danielle: Be gentle!
Reggie: Mm-hmm. Lily's gone.
Danielle: And I know exactly where she's going.
Reggie: All right, come on, we have to go get her.
Danielle: Aidan's about to get hooked up.
Aidan: It'll be better off out here. Maybe Miranda will fall asleep. You're not serious about London, are you? What do you normally do around New Year's Eve, anyway? Oh, come on, you can tell me.
Anita: Eat pizza, watch the ball drop if I manage to stay awake long enough.
Aidan: No, serious? Come on.
Anita: Hmm, serious. Bobby always worked on New Year's Eve. Big night for casinos, not such a big night for us, but never again. I'm free. I want to celebrate. I want to do something crazy, wild. I mean, when the clock strikes midnight, I don't want to be in flannels and curlers. I want to be somewhere spectacular doing something outrageous, something I'll never forget. Any ideas?
Jonathan: I'm so sorry, Maggie. I'm so sorry. I was -- I was -- I was drinking too much, and I can't hold my liquor and I didn't know what I was saying and didn't know what I was doing. I didn't mean to hurt you. I didn�t. I didn't mean to hurt you. I'd never hurt you, Maggie. You know that. You have to understand. Maggie, you have to believe me, I didn't mean it. Maggie, I'm scared. I'm scared. I feel totally freaked. I don't want to lose you to Bianca. I don't want to lose you to anyone. I'm just -- Maggie, I love you. I love you. You know that.
Maggie: You have to go.
Erica: I'm sorry if I seemed insensitive in suggesting that you visit the baby. I really just thought it might help.
J.R.: There's no need to worry about me, Erica. I know exactly what I need to help me. You must be anxious to get back to Bianca.
Erica: Thank you. Thank you both for all you did to help bring my daughter back to us.
Adam: You make sure you give her our best.
Erica: I will. J.R.? What happened to you and Bianca and that baby was a crime, and the guilty will pay.
Babe: What? Is my wig crooked or something?
Jamie: I was just thinking. As much as I like to have Faith, I don't want to ring in the new year with her.
Jamie: I want to spend it with Babe.
[Jamie removes Babe�s dark wig]
Babe: That's good to know. Because Harry, he's a nice guy and all -- not so handy around the house -- but I really want my Jamie.
Babe: That's better. Wait.
[Babe tousles Jamie�s hair]
Babe: There you are.
Jamie: We're not even halfway there.
Bianca: I won't thank you for stopping by.
Krystal: Listen, you can't forgive me, and I accept that. I deserve all your hate. But don't condemn Babe. She didn't even know about Miranda for the longest time, and when she found out, she wanted to tell you. She wanted to make things right.
Bianca: Yeah, so you've said several times. Well, Babe had her chance to make things right every day and she didn�t.
Krystal: Because of J.R. but then she finally did.
Bianca: Yeah, after a benefit concert for my dead child's memorial.
Krystal: Bianca, please. Go back to when Babe told you about Miranda. You saw how sorry she was, how much she regretted what she did, how she wanted to make things right. You remember that, don't you?
David: Krystal, you know, maybe we shouldn't press Bianca right now. You know, with her type of head injury, memory loss is common. I mean, I wouldn't doubt if you remember very little from that night. Is that right?
Bianca: I remember when Babe told me that you switched the labels on the DNA results and I remember that you kept the secret.
Krystal: Is that all?
Bianca: Well, what do you want me to remember?
David: Krystal, we really should go. Just let Bianca get some rest, ok? Come on.
Bianca: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. I know why you're here. You want to know if I'm going to tell J.R. that his son is alive.
Krystal: You saw how much she loves that little one, and she only wants what's best for him.
David: If J.R. learns about that baby, you know he's not going to stop until that kid is 100% Chandler. Babe's son wouldn't stand a chance.
Bianca: So now you want me to keep your secret for you?
David: For the baby's sake, yes.
Bianca: Do you hear yourself? You want me to let J.R. think that his child died just like you let me think that Miranda died all those months?
David: This is different, Bianca. You know that. J.R. drugged his wife. He almost got his brother killed. He even attacked him again in Florida. Yeah. He practically bashed Jamie�s head in. You know that J.R. is dangerous, possibly better than anyone else. He was the only one in that room with you when you fell off the balcony. What happened there? You know what he's capable of. In fact, you're the one that convinced Babe that he was going to hurt her or the baby if she stayed with him.
Bianca: That doesn't mean that he deserves to think his child died.
David: And yet you went to Florida to help Babe kidnap her baby because you knew the damage that J.R. would do to a child. You've seen up close the kind of person that he's become. If J.R. gets his hands on that son, he will never let go. He will control, he will manipulate, he will do everything within his power to mold that boy in very much the same way that Adam has molded him. That is why J.R. cannot know that his son is alive.
Bianca: So you want to play God, again.
Krystal: Bianca, please. You can hate us as long and as hard as you want, but please don't hate that little boy. You can damn us to hell, but don't turn your back on that baby.
Adam: I'm glad to see you have an appetite. And I'm also glad you came out of your room up there. I was beginning to worry about you.
J.R.: Not much to keep me there. I told Winifred to clean it out.
Adam: Have you made any plans for the future?
J.R.: You mean like hop on the next tramp steamer? I was a kid. I don't need to run away, live the low life to prove myself anymore. No, Dad, I'm staying.
Adam: You told Erica that you knew a way to help yourself. What did you mean by that?
J.R.: Dad, you're slowing down. I'm going to do exactly what I learned from you -- an eye for an eye.
Babe: What are you looking at?
Jamie: Best view in town.
Babe: I feel so much better now without five pounds of clothes and fake hair.
Anita: Miranda's finally asleep. So, tell me that you've come up with our New Year's blowout.
Aidan: You want it all-out? You got it.
Anita: Hey, wait, where are we going?
Aidan: And spoil the surprise? Are you kidding me?
Aidan: Hey, Lily, what -- what are you doing in here?
Lily: I tracked you down using my detective skills.
Aidan: Well, I'm impressed.
Lily: I read a lot of detective novels. I could be a good detective, just like you.
Aidan: Well, thanks for the compliment.
Lily: That means we have a lot in common. It's very important to share similar interests when a relationship is successful. We could be successful.
Aidan: At what, Lily?
Lily: I like you as much as I like purple.
Jonathan: Ahem. I've been afraid of this ever since we got together -- that I'd blow it, I'd say the wrong thing, I'd do the wrong thing, and now I have and I'm losing you. No one's ever made me feel the way you do, and no one ever will. I love you. Once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. That's why I'm going to do what you want. You'll never have to see me again. Hey, you deserve the best. Find someone who gives you that. I'll always love you.
Maggie: Jonathan, wait. My mom used to cut me down. She'd start in on me and tell me I was a waste. And one day -- I don't even know what I did -- she hit me. And I told her never to do it again. How do you hurt someone you love?
Jonathan: I don't know. I wish I didn't hurt you. I'd give anything to take it back, to wipe that look out of your eyes. Maggie, please believe me. I can't lose you. I can't live without you. I know I don't deserve it. I don't deserve you, but please, Maggie, forgive me. Please. I swear I'll never hurt you again. Just give me one more chance.
[Maggie reaches across the sofa and takes Jonathan�s hand]
Babe: I have to go get James.
Adam: An eye for an eye, hmm? That's very Chandler.
J.R.: When Jamie and I were kids, we shared everything -- secret handshakes, plans for the future. I never thought it would ever change. It's just too bad Babe was included in my life.
Adam: Hmm. Well, now they're both out of your life.
J.R.: What life? They left me with nothing! They ripped me apart and they took off to live a fairy tale. After everything they've done to me, they don't get to start over. They don't get to have a happy ending. They took away everything that I loved. I want them to feel my pain. And they will.
David: J.R. is capable of anything. You cannot tell him about his son.
Krystal: Bianca, if that child's life means anything to you --
David: Don't punish Babe�s son because you're angry with us. You have the power to give that boy the chance that he deserves.
Erica: What are you doing here?
Bianca: Do you want to tell her or should I? They're here to talk about Babe and J.R. and the baby.
Anita: I better see if my little friend woke up.
Lily: Do you like purple? That could be something else we have in common.
Aidan: Yeah, I like purple. And I'm really flattered that I'm at the top of your list, Lily.
Lily: There's no list. It's just you.
Aidan: Listen, you're very sweet, and I like you, too, but --
Lily: Then will you be my boyfriend?
Jonathan: I love you. I can't imagine my life without you. I can't imagine waking up without you beside me. I can't imagine not having your hand in mine. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me. I swear to you on my life, I swear on my love for you that I will never hurt you again.
Erica: I doubt that Bianca has anything more to say to you about the baby.
Bianca: Leave. We're through.
Erica: But we're not. I'd like to have a word with both of you in the hallway.
David: Bianca? Please think about what we said.
Bianca: Please leave.
David: All right, Erica, what do you want to talk about?
Erica: Actually, Derek would like a word.
Derek: David Hayward, Krystal Carey, you're under arrest.
David: What's the charge?
Derek: Failure to return a child. That's a felony. And, Ms. Carey, you're also facing charges of record-tampering and forgery.
[Alone in her hospital room, Bianca ponders what she just heard]
David's voice: You knew the damage that J.R. would do to a child. Babe's son wouldn't stand a chance.
Krystal's voice: Don't turn your back on that baby.
David's voice: J.R. cannot know that his son is alive.
[Babe and Jamie play with baby James]
Babe: Is that your daddy?
Adam: Just how do you plan to get to Jamie and Babe? They're nowhere to be found.
J.R.: I have time, money, power. Oh, I'll find them. And when I do, I'm not attacking long-distance. I'm going to bring them home.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Bianca: Do you want to find out for sure you're a Cambias?
Erica: Leave my family alone.
Zach: Miranda's my brother's child.
Erica: Oh, don't you dare.
Greenlee: But this is our first New Year's together as husband and wife. I don't want to spend it in jail.
Man: He has a gun! Get down!
