http://allmychildren.about.com/library/recaps/2003/bl20030219.htmErica thanks Lena for coming so quickly. She looks at the financial projections and says she knew it! She knew Fusion wouldn't impact their market share, although those girls are just so adolescent they're going to squander their very limited income on a party tonight, although she can't imagine what they have to celebrate or who will attend, although she did hear that Michael Cambias' plane just landed in Pine Valley. Lena sits down as she asks why he would be interested in such a small start-up? Erica says the Cambiases always have an angle, "If I weren't such a conspicuous CEO, I would go to that party myself tonight just to watch Cambias operate." Lena asks, "May I be forward, Miss Kane? I think we should always keep a very close eye on Cambias Industries." Erica agrees, whenever that's possible. Lena suggests she go to this Fusion party for her, "I could find out Michael Cambias' angle for you, and I can be very inconspicuous." Erica smiles as she says she appreciates her offering to be her eyes and ears at the Fusion party tonight, but certainly wouldn't want her to do anything that would make her feel uncomfortable. Lena asks why she should feel uncomfortable? She works for Enchantment and wants it to do well; that's why she told her as soon as she saw Michael Cambias and Kendall Hart together, and why she will tell her everything she sees tonight. When Erica says she appreciates her loyalty, Lena asks if she may be direct again? She has the feeling she wants more than just business information, that her interest in this Michael Cambias is personal. Erica insists she's completely wrong; her interest is purely professional! Lena looks at her knowingly and asks, "Even though he seems to be developing a relationship with the young woman you gave birth to?" Erica says she's going to be completely candid with her, "Kendall Hart has a long and sick history of saying she's trying to destroy her, but she doesn't feel threatened by her little company and their bake sale products. But, when she tries to make time with a very well-levered competitor, then I would be a complete fool to ignore that!" She tells Lena to buy herself something really gorgeous to wear to that party tonight; she wants her to treat herself to a designer ensemble, and charge it to Enchantment. Lena says she's very generous, and Erica repeats that she appreciates loyalty. Lena replies that she'll do anything she needs. Erica thanks her, saying she'll never regret it. She smiles as she watches Lena walk away and sighs, "But Michael Cambias will!"

http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm16.showMessage?topicID=59.topicLena has the quarterly projections for Erica’s perusal. She’s happy to see that Fusion hasn’t made any sort of dent in their market share. Of course they haven’t, Erica you moron. They have one shade of lipstick selling in one store. Erica discusses Fusion’s upcoming party with Lena and mentions that Michael is back in Pine Valley again. Erica wishes she were a less conspicuous person so she could nose around at the Fusion party. Lena volunteers to go and be her eyes...
Erica appreciates that Lena would volunteer to crash the Fusion party. Lena wants to make sure that she spies on the correct people and asks if Erica’s interest in Michael at the Fusion party is of a more personal nature...
Erica declares that her interest in Michael is just business. Lena just wants to make sure that it has nothing to do with Kendall. Erica admits that she and Kendall have a long history of trying to one-up each other, so she’s very suspicious that Kendall is making time with Mr. Corporate Raider.
Lena really starts playing the player. Heh heh.

***** (clip a) [Lena offers to be Erica's spy at the Fusion party]
Erica: Oh, good. Lena, thank you for coming by so quickly.
Lena: Here are next quarter's financial projections.
Erica: Thank you. Aha! I knew it. I knew that fusion [amc030219a-inc starts] would not impact our market share. Ah, fabulous. Although those girls are so adolescent, they are just going to just squander their very limited income on a party tonight.
Erica: Yes, really. I can't fathom what they have to celebrate or who will even attend -- although I did hear that Michael Cambias' plane just landed in pine valley this afternoon.
Lena: Hmm. Why would he be interested in such a small startup?
Erica: Well, the Cambiases always have an angle. If i weren't such a conspicuous CEO, I would go to that party myself tonight just to watch Cambias operate.
Lena: May I be forward, ms. Kane?
Erica: Yes, of course, Lena Please don't be shy with me.
Lena: I think we should always keep a very close eye on Cambias industries.
Erica: Oh, yes, whenever possible. I completely agree.
Lena: Suppose I go to this fusion party? I could find out Michael Cambias' angle for you. I can be very inconspicuous.
***** (clip b) [Erica accepts Lena's offer]
Erica: Lena, I appreciate your offering to be my eyes and ears at the fusion party tonight, but i certainly wouldn't want you to do anything that would make you feel uncomfortable.
Lena: Why would I feel uncomfortable? I work for enchantment, I want enchantment to do well, and that's why i told you as soon as i saw Michael Cambias and Kendall hart together. That's why I'll tell you everything i see tonight.
Erica: Well, that's wonderful. That is truly very, very loyal of you.
Lena: But, ms. Kane, may i be direct again?
Erica: Uh -- yes, yes. Of course, please.
Lena: I have the feeling that you want more than just business information, that your interest in Michael Cambias and this fusion party is personal.
***** (clip c) [Erica discusses Kendall with Lena]
Erica: You are completely wrong. My interest in Michael Cambias is purely professional.
Lena: Even though he seems to be developing a relationship with the young woman you [amc030219c-inc starts] gave birth to.
Erica: All right, I'm going to be completely candid with you. Kendall hart has a long and sick history of saying she's trying to destroy me. However, i do not for one minute feel threatened by her little company and their bake-sale products. But when she tries to make time with a very well-leveraged competitor, then i would be a complete fool to ignore that. So, I would like you to buy yourself something really gorgeous to wear to that party tonight. I want you to treat yourself. Treat yourself to a designer ensemble and charge it to enchantment.
Lena: You are very generous.
Erica: Well, I appreciate loyalty.
Lena: I'll do anything you need, ms. Kane.
Erica: Thank you. You'll never regret it. But Michael Cambias will.
