>> Hi, I'm Susan Lucci. For the first time ever, you have a chance to interact with "All My Children." You're invited to be a guest at the Mardi Gras Ball and support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund at the same time. When you call 1-800-RED-CROSS and contribute by February 12, you will receive a callback message from me and ensure that the American Red Cross will be there to help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year with food, clothing, counseling, and more. Call now. Together, we can save a life.
[While Kendall talks on her cell phone, Zach lovingly kisses her neck.]
Kendall: Binks. Hey. I know, yes. I know it's late. Never mind the time. What are you doing tomorrow? Yes, in Paris. Where else would you be? How about from sunrise to midnight? Good, good. Well, then you can be my maid of honor. Yes! Yes, Zach and I are getting married in Paris tomorrow. Yes, I am dead serious. I have never been so serious or so in love in my whole life.
Ryan: Kendall’s future is in his hands.
Ethan: You have the time?
Ryan: Marty, you screw this up –
Marty: Hey, I can do this and you know it, or you wouldn't have blackmailed me into it.
Ethan: Ahem. I’d keep on his good side if I were you.
Ryan: You pull this off, and you're in the clear. You good? You got this covered?
David: Your everlasting love for Greenlee. What a joke. You're busted, Lavery, and I’ll be damned if I'm going to let you have her.
Jamie: You're so tight with Josh, you just used him to make J.R. jealous, so why accuse him of setting up Amanda?
Babe: It's possible.
Jamie: You hate Amanda.
Babe: I can't stand her, but she's not guilty.
Jamie: You want Amanda out of jail?
Babe: If Josh is behind this, then I think we should at least find out.
J.R.: Amanda belongs in jail. You two want to throw her a pity party, it ends right here, and Amanda stays right where she is.
Janet's voice: And Erica, of all people, my dear friend? The way she lashed out at you was vicious.
Amanda's voice: Forget Erica, please. Just please leave her alone.
Janet's voice: And I think it's time that others learn the meaning of sacrifice. And by the morning, they will. Of course, it will be too late by then. Oh well, by the morning, they will. By the morning, they will. By the morning, they will. They will. They will. They will --
Erica: Tonight, we have the power to change people's lives.
Janet: Don't I know it.
Erica: Please call 1-800-RED-CROSS to make your donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Help the survivors of Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma and the thousands of disasters across the country each year rebuild their lives. So many of our fellow Americans are counting on your generosity. So thank you for joining us at the Mardi Gras Ball and please keep those donations coming in.
Josh: Erica, that was perfect. Maybe your next appeal should include your Mardi Gras king. Where is Jack, by the way?
Erica: I'm going to go check the donation line.
Josh: Before you do, I contacted the owners of the local affiliates who want me as your co-host.
Erica: Of course you did. Very slick of you, Josh.
Josh: Well, I explained to them that you were given some antipsychotic meds by a former employee. That it was just a setup, and that it could never happen again, that you don't need a co-host or a back-up, that you are the tune-in to “New Beginnings,” the one and only.
[Aidan: Not bad for a hideout, huh? Best thing about this place, anything happens in Pine Valley, we can prove that you weren't responsible.
Jonathan: If you say so.
Aidan: Before you take your jacket off, I want to show you the best thing about this place, and it's back this way. Jonny.
Jonathan: You guys go ahead, I'm just going to sit down.
[Once alone, Jonathan answers his cell phone.]
Lily: Where are you?
Jonathan: I don't know. I'm way out in the woods.
Lily: Well, when are you coming? You're supposed to be here. Did you get that box I left for you?
Jonathan: Yeah, yeah!
Lily: Well, if you can't come, tell me.
Jonathan: No, no, I'm going to be there. I'm going to be there as soon as I can.
Lily: When's that?
Jonathan: I don't know. Thank you.
Aidan: Who was that?
Erin: Jonathan, who were you talking to?
Di: I’d offer you my coat if I had one.
Tad: I'm not cold. It's just the hair on my neck standing up. You want to do me a favor, just keep telling me the night's not going to shape up to be another world-class Pine Valley disaster.
Di: Tonight is not a night to create more disaster victims. It's to help them out.
Tad: Speaking of disasters, where's Slater?
Di: I don't know. You know what, Ryan and Ethan have this thing under control. It's fine.
Tad: I wouldn't go that far. For one thing, Madden's still got his eyes all over Erica.
Di: What, and you expect all hell to break loose with them tonight?
Tad: Di, take a good look around. See everybody having fun, laughing, dancing, having a good time. Half of them mean it, the other half have a lot of scores to settle.
Di: Oh, you know what you need?
Tad: You stick around long enough, something's going to happen, mark my words.
Di: Tad, take my doom-and-gloom antidote. Have some really fine, fine champagne.
Josh: The station affiliates know where I stand. Erica, you are “New Beginnings.” And I am the only guy that wants to help you stay on top.
Erica: How very kind.
Josh: I adore you. I am indebted to you. Will the lovely queen grant her devoted subject a dance?
Erica: We are very amused.
J.R.: Why would Josh set up Amanda?
Babe: Josh is really ambitious. First step, he's Erica's co-host, next, the show could be his.
J.R.: So he wants to succeed, so what?
Babe: And at any price.
Jamie: Including letting Amanda take the fall.
Babe: Look, when Josh first told me that he hired Amanda, he that said she was his key to getting ahead, and then all of a sudden Erica freaks out, Amanda takes the fall, and, what, Josh gets a promotion?
J.R.: That doesn't mean that Josh slipped Erica drugs.
Babe: Fine, then what would Amanda get out of it.
J.R.: You said it yourself, it's her MO.
Babe: Yeah, and that's what I thought at first. But then, the more I thought about it, all the more reason she wouldn't drug somebody as high-profile as Erica. We'd all find out about it and, of course, we'd assume Amanda did it.
J.R.: She didn't think it through.
Jamie: No, with Erica out of commission, Amanda loses her job.
J.R. Erica reams her out in front of the whole staff. You two expect Amanda to make sense. She's demented, she's nuts. It's in her DNA.
Babe: Mrs. Dillon seems more together and reasonable than you do half the time.
J.R.: Because I want to protect my son? Because I want to get the woman who abducted him punished?
Jamie: Wouldn't you like to know if Amanda really took Little Adam, poisoned the soup, drugged Erica?
J.R.: You'd rather have her in your own bed than some prison cot somewhere, right?
Jamie: I think Janet's behind all of this.
J.R.: Yeah? Why are you guys even wasting your breath on Amanda and Janet? They're both sacks of worthless.
[Spotting a strange woman staring at them through her mask, Jamie turns around.]
Jamie: Can we help you?
[A masqueraded Janet turns on her heels and disappears from their sight.]
Jonathan: It's just this kid. It's not the first time he's called. He got the wrong number and stored it in his mom's phone or something.
Aidan: So, on to more important things. What's the plan for tonight? Anybody feel like making some popcorn?
Erin: Oh. Well, I'm in. Jonathan? Do you want to take your jacket off?
Jonathan: No. Excuse me. I'm starting to feel really tired, and it's a good thing I didn't go to the Mardi Gras Ball. I'm really sleepy. Uh -- which one's mine?
Aidan: It's the first on the right.
Jonathan: Ok. Thanks.
Erin: Good night.
Jonathan: Good night. Have fun.
Aidan: Well, looks like it's just popcorn for two, then. Are you ready for an unforgettable experience?
Kendall: I will call you after the ball. It's Pine Valley, Binks. Something's going to happen. Love you, too. Bye. Ok.
Zach: So we're set?
Kendall: Yes. She's taking Miranda to buy dresses, and she is very excited about this.
Kendall: She is.
Zach: Anything to make Bianca happy.
Kendall: Hmm. Even marry little old me?
Zach: Sure. No sacrifice too great.
Kendall: Hmm. Mm-hmm. Oh, yeah.
Ryan: You know, there's just never enough trouble in the world for you, is there, Hayward?
David: Greenlee has been gone for, what, two months, and you've already hooked up with Julia Santos?
Ryan: What? I haven't hooked up with anyone.
David: I got to tell you, Ryan, you really do talk a good game. "Greenlee is the love of my life." Blah, blah, BS. You're so full of it. What the hell is wrong with this town? I walk down the street and people run back into their houses afraid I'm going to rape and pillage. You walk down the street and they throw rose petals in your path, even though everyone knows it's your fault, yours and Kendall’s, that Greenlee is gone.
Ryan: You want to know why Greenlee left?
David: I know why Greenlee left. She left because you played dead and Kendall decided to have your baby.
Ryan: You and I lost Greenlee because of the blackout. That's right, Hayward. If the power grid hadn't gone down, then I would be downstairs right now --
David: Oh, my God.
Ryan: Dancing with Greenlee.
David: You're going to blame this on an accident? Is that what you're doing?
Ryan: It wasn't an accident. It was intentional. Intentional. If somebody hadn't caused the blackout, then Kendall would be carrying the baby that Greenlee had intended, hers and mine.
David: The blackout was intentional?
Ryan: Yes. So back off and let me handle this.
Ryan: I have it under control.
David: What's "it"? You have something planned for tonight, here?
Ryan: Leave it alone. Trust me.
David: Huh. Trust you? I'll tell you what -- if I don't see results, if you don't pay back the person that hurt Greenlee, I'm coming after you.
Kendall: Dance? Dance?
Zach: Ok, you shouldn't stay up all night.
Kendall: I can sleep on the flight to my wedding. And when I wake up, my dreams won't stop. Come on.
Josh: Cheer up. The ball is a success.
Erica: Oh, I was just a little distracted.
Josh: Well, stop thinking about Amanda. Your future is limitless, Erica.
Erica: Hmm, I've always thought so.
Josh: Let me know if there's anything that I can do for you.
Erica: Yes, I know -- you'd walk over hot coals.
Greg: You come with me.
Josh: What, am I grounded?
[Greg and Josh walk over to a quiet corner.]
Josh: Well, get to it. I got things to do.
Greg: You better change your plans.
Josh: What do you have in mind, that I skip town before sunrise?
Greg: I know what you're up to.
Josh: What, you afraid for Erica?
Greg: Yes, I am.
Josh: Well, emotion's a bad thing for a man of medicine, Dad. Maybe you should think about quitting before everyone finds out that you might still be in love with Erica.
Greg: After everything that I've done for you.
[As Greg stalks off, Tad follows him.]
Jamie: Amanda hates you, she wanted to hurt you, but I'm supposed to believe you want to protect her from Josh?
Babe: Not Amanda. Erica. I want to help protect Erica.
J.R.: Oh, what the hell. After keeping Miranda, you're never going to get off Erica's untouchable list.
Babe: Look, I know that I'm never going to make up for what I did, but if I can help find out who drugged Erica, it'll help protect her, and that's what really matters.
Jamie: We won't find out here.
Babe: Right. Want to drive?
J.R.: Where are you going?
Jamie: To jail.
Babe: To Amanda.
J.R.: Well, wait up! You're going to need at least one sane person as a witness.
Erica: Our audience at home is keeping our lines very busy. We are well on our way to meeting our goals. Thanks to all of you, the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund can continue to help all the victims of last year's hurricanes and other national disasters. Thank you.
Zach: All right.
Kendall: All right.
Zach: What are you doing?
Kendall: Ok, ready?
Zach: You kidding me?
Kendall: No, this is supposed to be good luck or something like that.
Zach: Yeah? It's a good way to spill punch. What are you trying to do, get to my wallet?
Kendall: No. Actually, I want to make sure that the hole my mother put in you has healed up.
Kendall: And it has. Very good job.
Zach: Yeah, if this was her engagement present, makes you wonder what she's going to get us when we get back from Paris, doesn't it?
Kendall: I don't know. A man who can deal with a mother-in-law stabbing is the real deal.
Ethan: Hey. You can talk. You're not going to ruin anything, ok? You seem rattled. Come on.
Simone: What happens if Kendall gets a broken heart?
Ethan: Ahem. What happens if we leave her in the dark, and she finds out years from now what Zach’s done, hmm? Listen, I've got to go and see Ryan.
Simone: No, no, you can't leave me. I am liable to wander past a microphone and say something that will blow this whole thing wide open.
Ethan: Stop. Simone, you're wonderful. Wonderful. In my eyes, you can't do any wrong, ok? You're not going to mess things up. Ryan can wait. I would like to dance with my future wife.
Opal: Show me that move again.
Del: Which move is that?
Opal: I don't remember.
[Dressed in a gorgeous tux, Jonathan is about to flee out the window when he hears a knock on the door, quickly shuts the window and jumps under the covers.]
Erin: Jonathan? You awake?
Jonathan: Uh -- yeah, but I'm about to fall asleep!
Aidan: Can we come in?
Jonathan: Uh -- uh -- sure. Sure.
Aidan: Oh, sorry about the noise out there. We, you know --
Erin: We know we kept you up. Sorry.
Aidan: And it's my fault.
Erin: Yeah, it is, due to three bushels of charcoal-covered popcorn. It was disgusting.
Jonathan: Maybe you guys should go to bed. My bed's real soft. I can't wait to fall asleep.
Erin: Ok, well, good night again. Sweet dreams.
Jonathan: You, too.
[Cell door opens]
Jamie: For the Police PAL Fund.
Guard: You're safe in there. I can make an exception this once.
Amanda: You here to torture me?
Jamie: No. We need to figure out what really happened to Erica.
Babe: Like who slipped her the drugs. We need the truth.
J.R.: So why ask Amanda?
Babe: Look, I don't believe that you did everything you confessed to.
Jamie: Neither do I.
J.R.: Oh, yeah. Jamie thinks Janet beamed down to do some of the dirty work.
Jamie: We just need proof you didn't do everything.
Babe: Like poisoning Erica.
Jamie: So, was it you or was it Janet?
Amanda: Why would my mom want to hurt Erica or anybody else?
J.R.: Like Janet's ever made any sense.
Amanda: She didn't do anything.
J.R.: So then it was all you?
Babe: Your mother is incredibly protective of you.
J.R.: Translation -- a maniac.
Jamie: Janet would take on an entire nation to save you.
Amanda: Ok, I didn't dose Erica. It really was Josh. He did it and framed me.
Jamie: You know that, really?
Amanda: Josh dosed Erica's tea.
Jamie: Ok. Officer? Can we get Chief Frye down here?
Josh: What, are you back again?
Greg: This career in television is not worth selling your soul for.
Josh: You're serious?
Greg: Josh, I don't even recognize you anymore. I raised you to care about people, to have respect for people.
Josh: Oh, I respect people, what they can do for me. Same thing almost.
Greg: Who are you?
Josh: I'm my own man, Dad, not your impressionable boy or your miracle son.
Greg: My son was a fine young man.
Josh: You know what? Take a good look, because your miracle son is dead, and I can do whatever I want to whomever I want, and no one -- get it? -- No one can stop me.
Kendall: Is that a vodka neat?
Simone: Hey. Oh, no, no, it's water. Straight up, old-fashioned wawa.
Kendall: Wow. Well, tonight is full of surprises.
Simone: Yes. Yeah. Have you gotten yours?
Kendall: Yes. I am beating you to the altar.
Kendall: Tomorrow morning, Zach and I will be saying "Je do" in Paris.
Simone: Oh, my gosh! I knew I was right. Man, those guys had me totally second-guessing myself. So you thought it was romantic, right?
Kendall: What, Paris?
Simone: Well, yeah, of course, what Zach did. He told Ryan you don't care.
Kendall: Oh, come on, Simone, you know Ryan was just trying to get a rise out of me, and when he realized he couldn't, he dropped it.
Simone: Right. When, tonight?
Kendall: Simone, it was, like, a week ago.
Simone: You know, I got to go. I -- I said I was going to write another check, and I want to make sure I do that. I want to help as much as I can. I'll see you later.
[Ryan descends the staircase and signals Ethan.]
Erica: May I have your attention, please? Palmer Cortlandt has just made the most generous donation, issuing an enormous challenge to all of you. Thank you, Palmer --
[All the guests murmur as the ballroom goes black and someone snatches Kendall.]
Erica: Please don't be alarmed. Can you hear me?
Erica: Ok, yeah, please don't be alarmed. I'm sure that just some of our extra equipment has overloaded a few circuits.
Jack: I told you to bring those surge protectors. I told her to bring the surge protectors.
Erica: Anyway, I'm sure that it's just temporary, and our lights will go on momentarily.
Jack: So, folks, why don't you take advantage of the romantic ambiance. I know we will be.
Ryan: This is going to take two seconds. Just come with me.
Kendall: Wait, have you lost your mind, Ryan?
Ryan: Please come in.
Kendall: What an unpleasant surprise.
Kendall: Ok, I'm in. So now what? What the hell is this, Ryan? What are you doing? What's going on?
Adam: Perhaps this outage will save me from having to out-pledge Pete Cooney.
Krystal: Well, do what you want. This is enough light for me. I plan on writing a check for double whatever Palmer is giving.
Adam: Oh, fine, go ahead and rob me and leave me penniless in the gutter. But a bunch of strangers?
Krystal: A lot of those folks used to have nice homes, and now they got nothing but a concrete slab -- not a family photo or single memento. I only hope this blackout doesn't affect donations.
Adam: Krystal Carey, the idiot savant of philanthropy.
Krystal: Hmm. That's Krystal chandler.
Adam: The only goody-two-shoes whose shoes are stilettos.
Krystal: I take that as a compliment.
Adam: It wasn't intended as such.
Krystal: I know that. I'll rip your head off later, at home.
Lily: Maybe we can all go home now.
Danielle: You're not having fun?
Lily: I'm lonely.
[While Aidan and Erin are in the backyard hot tub, Jonathan makes his escape out the front door.]
Aidan: Ah. Well, I never.
Erin: I never -- hot tubs always seemed kind of, you know -- but I figured we're here. Why not?
Aidan: First time for everything. So, you ready to jump in?
[Shedding her bathrobe, Erin lowers herself into the hot tub.]
Aidan: Not so bad, is it?
Erin: Actually, it feels pretty good.
Palmer: Pardon me.
Palmer: Could I cut in?
Jack: Yes, my pleasure.
Erica: Thank you.
Zach: Kendall was with you.
Simone: I know that.
Zach: All right, where is she now?
Simone: Oh, my gosh, is that like, "Where was Moses when the lights went out?"
Zach: I need to find her.
Simone: What is with you? Can't a girl have some privacy? She went to the ladies' room, I think. I'm pretty sure.
Kendall: You can't force me into anything, Ryan. You can't.
Ryan: Yes, Kendall, I'm aware of that.
Kendall: Yeah, if I want to marry Zach -- and I do -- I will.
Ryan: And it's your decision.
Kendall: Exactly. So I'm done. I'm leaving. I'm going back downstairs. This is ridiculous. Ethan, just get out of my way.
Ryan: Please, please. This will not take long.
Kendall: Right, because we're over! We're done! I'm not doing this with you.
Ethan: Kendall, stop this. We're only thinking of you.
Kendall: Really? Maybe how much you hate your father? You've been waiting to stick it to Zach forever.
Ryan: Kendall? Are you afraid of the truth?
Kendall: Go ahead, Ryan, try to fill me with lies and brainwash me. It won't work.
Ryan: I have evidence. I have evidence that you should know before you make your decision.
Kendall: What, is -- is this your proof? How much did they pay you to lie about your boss, Marty?
Ryan: No, Marty isn't here to lie, Kendall.
Ethan: Kendall, Marty did a little side job for Zach the night the rolling blackouts hit Pine Valley.
Ryan: It was a job that ended your dream, Kendall, your dream and Greenlee's dream, and Marty is reenacting it now. Go ahead, Marty.
Marty: I'm sorry, Ms. Hart.
[Marty proceeds to show Kendall how he can make the electricity turn on and off with a few taps on his laptop.]
Ryan: What you're seeing is the truth.
Babe: So Josh slipped Erica the drugs so he could --
Amanda: Make her look incompetent, make her look like she belonged back in rehab. I mean, he's got all the motive. Why would I want her to schiz? I mean, why would I drug Erica?
Derek: Exactly the question I keep asking myself. What's this, a formal open house?
Guard: Shepherd needed me to cover him at the desk.
Derek: We'll take this up later. This had better be good. I, at least, have a party I'd like to get back to.
Jamie: We needed to find out who drugged Erica Kane.
Babe: And we thought that Amanda could help us fill in the blanks.
Amanda: Oh, my God.
Derek: Everyone stay right where you are. The emergency packs will kick in in just a minute.
Amanda: Oh, no. Oh, my God! No!
[Staring at the emergency lights, Amanda flashes back to the night J.R. hit her with his car.]
Aidan: It's all right, you know.
[Taking her hand, Aidan kisses Erin.]
Aidan: You all right?
Erin: But, Aidan, I think you should know --
Aidan: It's not just your first time in a hot tub?
Kendall: Wow, you can turn the lights on and off on a building. That -- that's very impressive. Congratulations, Marty, you win the science fair. So where's Simone? What, is she manning a fuse box somewhere?
Ryan: Marty, would you please tell Kendall the real story?
Marty: Shorting out the power grid wasn't that tough -- at least not for me, anyway. Zach knows I can do pretty much anything on this, with the right information.
Kendall: Ok, so -- so he told you to turn the lights out before you left, and you took it one step too far.
Ryan: Marty could handle the overall city power outage from here, but the fertility clinic had a backup generator. Marty, tell Kendall the rest.
Marty: Yeah. Zach wanted to be hands-on with the clinic's emergency power. He shut that down himself.
Ryan: Marry Zach. But do it knowing the truth.
Erin: This must be weird for you.
Aidan: This is very nice for me.
Erin: A hot tub with a completely inexperienced -- nearly completely -- woman? The first time like this, and I've never been with a man, anywhere.
Aidan: There's nothing wrong with that.
Erin: I'm a freak.
Aidan: You're unique. And you are very, very desirable.
Erin: Was it something I said?
Aidan: One new experience a day. That's my rule.
Erin: How -- how did I find the one man in the world that I can trust?
Zach: I checked the bathroom. She's not there.
Simone: You know, you're just going to have to ask somebody else to help you because I can't. And neither can Ryan, so don't bother him. Excuse me.
Zach: Don't ask Ryan?
Simone: Kendall's not with him.
Zach: No, why would she be?
Simone: She wouldn't be. I just got done saying that.
Josh: You don't run me, Dad. You never did. I'm finally on my way on my own path.
Greg: Don't you mean you're on Erica Kane’s path?
Josh: You know, I can do whatever I want to Erica's career. In a year, she'll be some semi-forgotten celeb lucky to get a half-hour on "whatever became of --" and I'll be the one on top.
Greg: You have no conscience.
Josh: I replaced it with ambition.
Greg: I will not let you hurt Erica Kane.
Josh: What are you going to do about it?
Erica: Oh. Actually, if you can find it in the light, the ladies' room is down the hall.
Janet: Oh, that's ok. I'm no lady.
Janet: What is a party without a few old friends, eh, Erica?
Amanda: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Babe: Amanda, are you ok?
Derek: Are you all right? Amanda?
J.R.: Oh, she's a mess. Told you it was a waste. I'm going back to the party.
Amanda: You. The lights -- the headlights that night -- you were behind the wheel of the car that hit me and almost killed me! It was you! Arrest him, Derek!
Ryan: Zach knew exactly what he was doing. Kendall, he wanted to make sure that you couldn't carry Greenlee's and my child. He pulled the switch on the fertility clinic, and he didn't care how many lives that he wrecked.
[Zach enters the room and stares at Kendall as Marty continues with his demonstration.]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Babe (to Derek): If J.R. went to prison, what would happen to the custody of our son?
Zach (to Kendall): Bianca’s waiting for us in Paris, and we can still be married tomorrow.
Janet (to Erica): I will help you get at Josh, and we'll just roast him on a spit.
