Amber: I'm back.

Taylor: What happened?

Amber: I was right, Taylor. There is something fishy going on, and Lance knows what it is.

Taylor: You got to talk to him?

Amber: Yeah. And I talked to Rick, too.

Taylor: What did Lance say?

Amber: Nothing definite, but you know, he -- he was definitely hiding something. He was very nervous, and his story didn't match up. He said that we left the party after we were drinking Margaritas.

Taylor: Wait. I thought he told you you were doing tequila shots.

Amber: Exactly. In fact, I don't think we were drinking at all.

Taylor: But somehow, you still blacked out.

Amber: I know. There's still something missing, but I'm gonna get to it.

Taylor: Amber, if this guy is hiding something, he isn't going to want to see you again.

Amber: Oh, he will, he will, because I already told him nothing bad would happen to him as long as he told me the truth. And I was sure that he was gonna do it right then, and then Rick and Erica walked in.

Taylor: They saw you with him?

Amber: Rick thinks I'm having an affair.

Taylor: Oh, Amber, if I were you, I would stay away from Rick until you have a little more information to defend yourself with.

Amber: Don't worry, Taylor. I'm working on it.


[ Phone rings ]

Lance: Take a chance on Lance?

Amber: Lance, this is Amber Forrester. Don't hang up.

Lance: Oh, geez. You won't give up, will you?

Amber: No, I won't. Not as long as you might have some information that can save my marriage, I won't.

Lance: Yeah? Well, not tonight, all right? Look, I'm making a snack, and I'm going to bed.

Amber: Well, then you better make enough for two, because I'm coming over.

Lance: Wha -- no. Look, you want to talk? We'll talk tomorrow.

Amber: Lance, I need answers. Please.

Lance: All right. I'll tell you everything you want to know.

Amber: Good. I'll see you first thing in the morning. Good-bye.

Lance: I told Sheila this chick wasn't gonna let up.


[ Phone rings ]

Sheila: Hello?

Lance: Yeah, it's me.

Sheila: Well, I hope you've come to your senses.

Lance: I just got a call from amber. She's gonna be at my place first thing tomorrow.

Sheila: Lance -- Lance, you can't talk to this girl. I -- I know that she says she's gonna let you off the hook if you tell her the truth, but she's not gonna be so forgiving when she finds out that you drugged and kidnapped her.

Lance: Sheila, she just wants to save her marriage, all right? Her husband saw us talking today. He's probably filing divorce papers as we speak.

Sheila: And -- and now you're worried about it? Now you want to help her out, but if I give you $100,000, all of that concern, it -- it's gonna go away?

Lance: Listen to me. I just want to forget about this, all right? I want this chick off of my back. So either you give me enough cash to relocate or I tell amber what I did. I can stall her until the bank opens. If I don't hear from you by 10:00, I spill my guts.

[ Phone clicks ]


[ knock at door ]

Erica: Rick, are you awake?

Rick: Yeah. Come in.

Erica: I saw that your light was on.

Rick: Is amber gone?

Erica: Yeah. She left a little while ago. Are you okay?

Rick: She said that it was a misunderstanding.

Erica: What we saw at the coffee shop?

Rick: All of it -- her meeting Lance, the night they spent together.

Erica: So she denied having the affair?

Rick: She says that he's hiding something. Something else happened.

Erica: You don't believe her?

Rick: She says she can prove it. She said she'll have all the answers by tomorrow.


Sheila: I begged you not to do it, Lance. I told you I didn't have the money, but now you had to force my hand.

[ Sheila laughs ] you think you can blackmail me?

[ Bees buzzing ]

Sheila: You have no idea who you're dealing with.

Sheila: You don't like bees, do you, lance? Oh, no. No, you're allergic, you poor, greedy, stupid Lance. I asked you to be reasonable. All you had to do was keep your mouth shut, and everything would be fine. But no. No, you want to tell Amber the truth. Well, I can't let you do that. My daughter deserves to be happy. She belongs with Rick. I finally got Amber out of the picture, and I'll be damned if I let some pinhead model let her back in.


Amber: I don't believe this, Taylor. Lance is gonna tell me everything.

Taylor: When?

Amber: First thing in the morning.

Taylor: Why didn't he just tell you tonight?

Amber: I don't know. He said that he wanted to get to bed. Do you know what this means? This means Rick and I could be together by tomorrow afternoon.

Taylor: Amber, Amber, I wouldn't get my hopes up. Even if you do talk to this guy tomorrow, how can you even believe anything he says?

Amber: Well, because I didn't sleep with him, Taylor, and I didn't come onto him. I don't care how drunk i was, I would have never done that to Rick. I love my family. Now, lance is gonna clear me of this, and then I'm gonna march back to my husband, and no one's gonna ever come between us again.


Lance: No, bro. No, I might be coming out. I might be coming out tomorrow. Yeah, for good. Oh, you know what? L.A.'S a great town, you know, but -- I don't know. I think -- I think I need a change. Besides, I miss the city, you know? Huh? No, no. Don't worry about that, brother. Listen, if I'm coming out, I'm bringing a big chunk of change. Oh, yeah, trust me. I should know in the morning. Yeah. No, bro.

[ Lance laughs ] oh, shoot. Just hold on. No. I'm just -- I'm dropping like half my sandwich in my lap over here.

[ Lance laughs ] oh, yeah. You know it, brother. Peanut butter and honey. Right. The snack food of champions.

[ Lance laughs ] all right, dude. Well, I'm beat. I've got -- I've got to go. You going out? Okay, you just save some of those New York honies for me. All right. I'll call you first thing in the morning when I know for sure. Okay. Later.

Sheila: Lance, I thought I could trust you. All you've had to do was what I told you to do, collect the cash. It would have been so easy. And nobody ever would have found out. It was such a perfect plan until you decided to go and screw it up. Until amber put the -- the squeeze on you. Well, you think you can protect yourself by telling the truth? Oh, no. You see, there is so much more at stake here. You just don't understand. You see, if amber found out that you were working for someone, and she traces it back to me, I go to prison, and I'd lose my daughter. Erica would become an -- an outcast, a pariah. It would ruin her life, and I can't let you do that, lance. No, I have to stop you.

[ Bees buzzing ]

[ Crickets chirping ]

[ bees buzzing ]

Sheila: Nobody messes with me and my daughter -- nobody.


Erica: So amber's gonna prove this was all just a misunderstanding?

Rick: That's what she says.

Erica: That's what she always says. Look, Rick, I don't mean to slam her, but come on. How many times is she gonna do this to you, all the empty promises? In the end, all you get is just another excuse.

Rick: Look, I -- I know it sounds ridiculous, but you said it yourself, Erica. Amber's behavior doesn't make any sense at all.

Erica: But that doesn't mean there's some kind of conspiracy behind it.

Rick: What if he did something to her? You know, Amber doesn't remember the night. What if -- what if he spiked her drink?

Erica: With what, a date rape drug?

Rick: It does happen.

Erica: Yeah, at nightclubs, at -- at wild parties, but not at a company party at your family's home. Look, Rick, I know that you want to give amber the benefit of the doubt, but I really think it's time you ask yourself, what has she given you -- stress, trauma, disgrace, excuse after crazy excuse.

Rick: But she seems really devastated about this.

Erica: Rick, of course she's devastated. She's just destroyed the best thing that she's ever had. But you can't let her snow you. You can't let her build up your hopes, okay? Amber is always gonna be a part of your life. You're little Eric's parents. He's not gonna lose his mother, but I really think it's time you put some focus on yourself. What do you need, more frustration, more unfulfilled expectations? No. I mean, you've had that for years. Don't give Amber a chance to disappoint you again. Don't get sucked back into her drama. Amber's put you through enough pain. Rick, there are gonna be other women out there for you -- better women -- out there -- and in here.


Taylor: Amber, I just wish you hadn't promised to let Lance off the hook. You have no idea what he's done.

Amber: I don't care. I just want to know what it is.

Taylor: Well, you may feel differently if he tells you.

Amber: When he tells me. It's gonna happen, Taylor.

Taylor: Okay, fine, then I'm coming with you.

Amber: No, no, don't come. Um, I don't -- I don't want to spook him.

Taylor: Well, then at least meet him in a public place. You don't have any idea what this guy is about. And if you didn't come onto him, then you may not have even left the party voluntarily.

Amber: Lance isn't a threat. He doesn't want to hurt me. Someone else does.

Taylor: Who?

Amber: Erica.

Taylor: Your nanny?

Amber: Mm-hmm. She's after Rick. She's been working her way into his life for months.

Taylor: Wait a minute. So you think maybe she's connected to this somehow?

Amber: I think there's a connection, and I think Lance is the key, and he has the answers.


[ Bees buzzing ]

Sheila: You're not gonna talk to Amber. You're not gonna talk to anyone. Ever again.

[ Crickets chirping ]

Amber: And Erica tried to keep me from going upstairs in my own house. Can you believe it? She told me I couldn't see my own husband.

Taylor: But you did get to see him, didn't you?

Amber: Oh, you bet I did. I wasn't gonna let the nanny stop me. And let me tell you something, Taylor. When Rick and I are back together, I'm gonna make sure she never comes near my family again.

Taylor: I don't think Erica is your major problem right now. You need to talk to Lance, and depending on what he says --

Amber: Rick will take me back. This whole thing has been a huge misunderstanding, and tomorrow, I'll prove it.


Erica: I'm sorry. I didn't mean that the way that it sounded. I know that you're probably gonna miss Amber for a really long time.

Rick: We have a lot of history together.

Erica: Yeah, but how much of that history is good?

[ Phone rings ]

Rick: Excuse me. Hello.

Amber: Rick, it's me.

Rick: Look, Amber, it's really late. I don't want to get into this tonight.

Amber: Is Erica still there?

Rick: Yes.

Amber: Is she in the room with you?

Rick: Look, we can discuss this in the morning, okay?

Amber: What does she say about me? Has -- has she been badmouthing me?

Amber: : Rick, don't listen to her. I am telling you the truth, okay? I didn't betray you. I'm -- I'm not cheating on you. I'm -- I don't know what happened the other night, but I'm gonna have and explanation for this whole thing. I love you, and I won't let you down, I promise. I will have this whole thing cleared up in the morning. Bye.


[ Bees buzzing ]

Lance: Ow! What the hell was that? Oh, my god, bees! They're everywhere! Let me out of here! Let me out of here, somebody! Somebody, I can't breathe! I can't breathe! Say some -- please help me! Please help me! Help me! I can't breathe! I can't breathe!

[ Choking ]

Lance:  Help me. Help me. Call 911.

Sheila: What's the matter, you don't feel well?

Lance: My allergies. Help me. Help me, please.

Sheila: Help you the way you helped me, Lance?

[ Choking and gasping ]

Lance: I -- can't -- breathe.

Sheila: It does sound like you're having a little trouble breathing there. What you been doing in there, huh? You been planning your big trip to New York City like a busy little bee?

Lance: You -- you did this?

Sheila: I'm sorry. I tried to warn you.

Lance: You bitch.

Sheila: Don't you dare blame me for this! I told you I couldn't come up with the money. But no, you wouldn't -- you wouldn't listen to me. You put me in an impossible position. See, I couldn't let you talk to Amber. If she knew I were in town, I'd go to prison. My -- my real name isn't Sheila Lovejoy. It's Sheila Carter! The story's too long to go into, so I'll just -- I'll just cut to the moral, Lance! Before you blackmail anybody, you should know what you're dealing with!

[ Bees buzzing ]

Sheila: You made a big mistake, Lance. You messed with the wrong momma.
