With genuine concern, Kendall tries to convince Bianca that Lena is in league with Michael. Bianca however, refuses to believe Kendall and unleashes her anger at her. Bianca is stunned when Erica comes to Kendall's defense and becomes angry when she realizes that Erica and Kendall are working together to try and ruin her relationship with Lena. Later, Bianca is devastated when she sees Michael leaving Lena's room and begins to suspect that Erica and Kendall were telling her the truth. Michael tells Lena to use Bianca to gain access to Erica's penthouse to search for Boyd's formula.

Lena returns to her hotel room and is startled to find Michael waiting in the dark. He turns on the light and asks if she got into the safe? When she says yes, he exults that finally that miracle in a jar is going to be his; it’s going to make them billions! Lena says his celebration is premature—the formula wasn't in the safe, and Erica must be taking extra precautions with it. Michael curses and says she’d better not be holding out on him, “One call to the Polish authorities, your mother's in prison before you can board a plane.” Lena tells him if she could get him the formula, she would, “We could stop this sick game, and I wouldn't have to look at your face again.” Cambias notes that she never used to think their games were sick until she got tangled up with Little Baby Kane, and warns that she’d better not forget who's calling the shots here. He has another job for her, “And this time, you'd better succeed.”...

When the phone rings, Jack groans that if that’s the judge calling to cancel, he’ll kill him! He answers the phone, and tells Erica it’s for her. She takes the call, and Lena exclaims, “Erica, I’m so glad I found you!” Erica asks what Michael Cambias is up to now? As Michael sits at her shoulder and listens, Lena tells Erica there’s been a run on Enchantment stock; he’s buying it through dummy corporations, but she’s sure Cambias is behind it—he’s trying to take over her company. Erica says she’s aware of that, but there’s no need to be concerned because the way they’ve set it up is that once he buys enough stock, the price will drop significantly, and he'll realize that he’s been wasting his time and money. Lena agrees she’s right, saying he’ll never expect the poison pill she put in place. “Exactly,” Erica tells her, “What would I do without you, Lena?” Lena protests that she’s just doing her job, and Erica tells her she does it so well! She thanks Lena and says she’ll see her back at the office before hanging up. She turns to Jack and exclaims, “Oh god, please let Kendall get through to Bianca before Bianca loses her heart to that scheming witch!” Jack notes that he never thought he’d see the day that she’d need Kendall Hart for anything, and Erica agrees she’s not happy about it. Jack says it seems like she’s got a pretty full plate right now. She says she does, but she still wants to marry him; as soon as that judge shows up, she’s going to get Bianca over here and keep her out of the clutches of that traitor, “That woman cannot get her claws into my daughter!” When she says she knows she should forget about Lena and Michael Cambias and just focus on them, Jack says he can’t tell her how much he loves her for wanting that, but she’s got a major crisis on her hands; when they get married, he doesn’t want her to be distracted on their wedding day. He’s going to cancel the judge and postpone their wedding, “And I want you to get out of here and go kick Michael Cambias’ and Lena Kondera's collective butts!” Just knowing she’s ready to say "I do" will keep him going, but not for too long. Erica promises she’s going to marry him before too long, and when she does, he’s going to be the only person on her mind.

Stunned, Kendall asks, “What in the hell did you hit me for?” Bianca says she finally has somebody great in her life, and she’s not going to let her poison it with her lies! Kendall insists she’s not lying; Lena is using her; she targeted Bianca and Enchantment! Bianca snaps that she doesn’t know anything about her, but Kendall insists she and Lena have a lot in common, “Bianca, your girlfriend is sleeping with my boyfriend.” Bianca is adamant that Lena is not cheating on her, but Kendall repeats that the only reason Lena is with her is that Michael told her to seduce Bianca. She’s following orders, and has been working with Michael since she came to Pine Valley; he got her that job at Enchantment, and is a spy there! Bianca thinks that’s ridiculous, saying it’s a cosmetics company, not the national security agency! Kendall explains that Boyd’s anti-aging cream is going to be worth a fortune, and Michael tried to use her to get the formula out of Boyd, “When I failed, he sent Lena to seduce it out of you.” Bianca furiously warns her to shut her filthy mouth, “If you say one more word against Lena, you’re going to be the one needing a hospital!” She insists that Lena cares about her, but Kendall asks her to think about it—has Lena ever acted weird or tried to gain access where she doesn’t belong? Bianca says no, and repeats that Lena’s not using her. Kendall sighs that she said the same thing about Michael. Bianca angrily tells her not to compare Lena to her boyfriend, the corporate raider. Kendall says this is useless; she was so in love that she wouldn’t listen, either, when everyone tried to warn her about Michael. Bianca tells her not to compare them, either, but Kendall asks why not? More than anything, they both want someone to love them, to believe in them; maybe they inherited that need to be loved from their mother. Bianca says if Lena wanted Boyd’s formula, she could have gotten it from him, and didn’t need to go through her. Kendall suggests that maybe Boyd turned her down, so Michael sent Lena to go after her; she’s close to Erica and to Boyd, and could Lena far more access to Enchantment. Bianca protests that Lena’s never asked her for anything, but Kendall insists she will; that’s why she’s trying to warn her. Bianca asks what’s in this for her—since when is she concerned with her feelings? As she accuses her of being jealous and calls Kendall a cruel and vicious excuse for a human being, Erica comes up and tells her to stop, “Kendall is just trying to save you!”

Lena tells Michael that Erica is convinced the poison pill she set up is going to stop him, and he notes she’d better not give him any reason to believe otherwise. Lena says she’s not about to compromise her mother's safety to save Erica Kane, and asks if he’ll go now? Cambias notes that she’s in such a hurry to get rid of him, and remembers a time when she wanted him to take it slow. He asks what she thinks Erica did with Boyd’s formula, and if she has a safe in her penthouse? Lena doesn’t know, but Michael thinks she should get in there and scope it out. Lena reminds him she’s an employee, and doesn’t have access to Erica’s private home. Michael is sure Bianca does, “I'm sure your little lover will let you in.”

Bianca looks from one to the other and exclaims, “Oh, my god, you put her up to this, didn't you? You two are double-teaming me!” Erica admits she did ask Kendall to speak to her about Lena, and Bianca asks Kendall what Erica offered her, “Forgiveness? A place in her heart? Don't hold your breath because it ain't happening!” Kendall insists she’s not doing this for Erica’s approval, “The only thing Erica and I have in common is wanting to protect you.” Bianca angrily tells her mother she cannot believe she would team up with Kendall to do this, “I mean, are you so unable to accept who I am that you would make a deal with the devil just to split me and Lena up?” Erica insists she would accept and embrace it if she met a woman who really cares about her, but Lena is using her. Kendall agrees that she was working with Michael way before she ever came to Pine Valley. Erica adds that she doesn’t even believe Lena is gay, “I think she's just pretending to be gay so she can get close to you.” Bianca has news for her—Lena is not pretending, “I would've noticed when we spent the night together last night. Lena is most definitely gay and she loves me, which is more than I can say about you!” She storms off, and Kendall says she’s sorry—she tried to get through to her. Erica knows it’s not her fault; it’s Lena’s and Michael’s. Kendall sighs that she’s been where Bianca is, and knows she’s going to get her heart crushed.

Lena insists she will not use Bianca that way again, but Michael asks if she would rather her mother go to prison? She wormed her way into Bianca’s life, “Getting into her mommy's inner sanctum shouldn't be much of a challenge.” Lena snaps that she hates him! Michael tells her to get him what he wants, and she’ll never have to see him again, “I'll be waiting, darling.” Bianca comes up in time to hear his parting remark as he leaves Lena’s room

Previously on All My Children
Aidan proposed to Mauria.
Kendall bluntly broke the news to Bianca about
Lena, then briefly looked out of her own earhole when she got slapped.
Erica reassured Jack about Chris.
Maddie giddily played in the park and witnessed Chris’s shooting...

Kendall checks to make sure she has all her teeth before she yells at Bianca for hitting her. Bianca refuses to believe her sister’s story. Kendall insists that Lena is using her. I smirk as Kendall finally makes the observation that we’ve been making for weeks: that she and Lena have a lot in common. At any rate, Kendall looks pretty upset at having had to break this news to Binks. You can see her swallowing the knot in her throat.

Lena enters her room to find *sshat standing there in the dark. He asks if she got into the safe. Lena answers yes and he practically does an endzone dance. He grasps her shoulders in gratitude but Lena looks as if she’d like to chew her arms off and get away...

Bianca is still refusing to believe Kendall who explains further about Lena acting on *sshat’s orders to seduce her. Bianca grabs Kendall and shoves her backwards in an effort to silence her.

Lena informs *sshat that his celebration is premature; the formula wasn’t in the safe. He threatens her some more to make sure she isn’t trying to pull one over on him then declares he has another assignment for her.

The phone rings for Erica. It’s Lena...

Bianca insists that Lena cares about her. Kendall begs her to think if Lena has ever acted weird on her. Bianca says no but you can see her brow furrow when she briefly pondered it. Kendall knows how Bianca feels since she wouldn’t listen to anybody’s warning about Asshat. Bianca tells Kendall not to compare the two of them. “Why not?” asks Kendall, pointing out that more than anything, they both want someone to love them. The words obviously hit home when Bianca has no response to that. Kendall theorizes that they both inherited their neediness from their mother.

Lena reports that *sshat is attempting a hostile takeover. Erica isn’t concerned about it because of the poison pill that will cause Enchantment stock to drop.

Upon hanging up with Lena, Erica prays to the soap gods that Kendall gets through to Bianca. Jack decides that Erica’s got too much on her plate to deal with a wedding right now. He wants her full attention on their wedding day so he orders her to go kick *sshat and Lena’s b**** and wrap everything up so they can get married with no worries...

Bianca wants to know why the hell Kendall is warning her about Lena in the first place. Bianca is pretty sure Kendall doesn’t care about Enchantment’s welfare and is still showing the emotional scars from being scorned by Kendall in the past since she isn’t all that ready to believe her sister actually cares about her. Kendall doesn’t cop to revealing her feelings and just tells Bianca to trust her because it’s for her own good. “Now you sound like my mother,” scoffs Bianca. Kendall roughly grabs her arm. “Our mother,” she hisses. Oh, Kendall. You just lost the argument. Couldn’t you let that one go? You’d been doing so well lately.

Bianca deems that the story about Lena is just another jealous tirade on Kendall’s part. She starts calling Kendall names but is interrupted when Erica yells at her to stop. Both Kendall and Bianca’s expressions match mine of complete and utter open-mouthed shock. I never thought I’d see the day when Erica stops Bianca from attacking Kendall.

Lena reports that Erica is convinced that the poison pill will curtail *sshat’s attempts to take over the company. She wants him to go. He fakes disappointment as he comments that there was once a time when she wanted him to take it slow. Lena totally has this ‘oh please’ look. “Too bad you never did,” she zings. Ooh, burn! He ignores the slam and wants her opinion about what she thinks Erica did with the formula. Lena has no theories. *sshat asks if Erica has a safe in her penthouse. Lena doesn’t know, having never been there. *sshat says she needs to gain herself some access to that place.

Bianca quickly deduces that Erica put Kendall up to convincing her that Lena was bad news. Bianca wants to know if Erica promised Kendall approval in exchange for the job and spits that big sis can forget about getting such a thing from mom. Bianca is halted in her storm-off by Kendall yelling that they both did it because they wanted to protect her. Binks can’t believe Erica would team up with Kendall just to blindside her.

Erica swears that if (yeah, I love the use of the word ‘if’) Bianca were to find a woman worthy of her then she would embrace it but Lena isn’t getting welcomed because she’s a con artist. Now Erica makes her own big mistake that costs her the argument. She theorizes that Lena probably isn’t even gay; just pretending. Bianca spells it out for her that Lena is very much into girls. She would have noticed otherwise when they slept together the previous night. Erica is visibly squicked now. Kendall has no reaction...

Kendall apologizes to Erica for failing to get through to Bianca. Erica says it’s not her fault, it’s Lena’s. Kendall must be doing an internal tap-dance for managing to get herself knocked from the top position on Erica’s shit list. Kendall knows from personal experience that Bianca is about to get her heart pureed.

Lena is greatly opposed to using Bianca some more. She is forced to give in when *sshat dangles the Communist mom blackmail over her head again. She seethes hatred at him. He says that if she gets him what he wants, she’ll never have to lay eyes on him again. He opens the front door and can’t resist baiting her as he says, “I’ll be waiting, darling,” which was a hell of a tactical error on his part because an approaching Bianca just got herself an earful. Dang, Binks just learned the truth almost the exact same way Kendall did...

On the next All My Children
Bianca is confronting Lena.
Boyd wants in on Kendall’s plan to topple *sshat.
Maggie is afraid she’s going to get expelled.
Edmund tackles Flanders outside the ER.





ALL GAY RE-CAP

This all gay recap is by C.K..
Read all the All Gay Re-caps at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheAllGayRecap/.

Lena parts are indicated in red for those who only want a Lena fix

TODAY ON AMC:

  • Spies!
  • The NSA!
  • Enchantment!
  • Van Gogh!
  • Again!

The Hospital - Erica tells Jack to delegate his responsibilities while he's in the hospital. I'm told I should do that, too, but I don't listen. Turns out it's not work, but wedding rings. Tightening the noose around LaKane's neck, are you Jack?

Kendall and Bianca are still talking. Van Gogh sure seems popular at AMC.

Bianca: "I finally have somebody great in my life and I am not going to let you poison it with your lies."
Kendall: "I am not lying to you: Lena is using you. She is targeting you and Enchantment."
Bianca: "You don't know anything about her."
Kendall: "Yes I do. Lena and I have a lot in common. Bianca, your girlfriend is sleeping with my boyfriend."


There is a joke there, but I am too mature to make it, so I'll insinuate it instead.


Lena’s Room - Lena has made her way back from the safe, opens the door and finds Michael inside her room. For a brief moment, Michael tastes victory. Yeah, I'm thinking that ambrosia ended up tasting like manure pretty quickly, huh Michael? No papers in the safe, no formula, no ambrosia.


Interlude - I think...these are the people who were having sex yesterday. I wish my VCR treated these bits of AMC as if they were commercials, so the Ad Skip feature would be automatically engaged. As it is, I have to press the button: the Munchkins are back, my dance is still spastic.


Who's that? Oh, Maggie with SpikyHairBoy. Eh, moving on. Unfortunately, I stop the fast forwarding too soon and I hear SpikyHairBoy saying: "Do you want speed or perfection?" I groan.


The Hospital – Bianca and Kendall are still at it.

Bianca: "Lena is not cheating on me. She wouldn't: not with Michael Cambias, not with anybody."

Well - not anymore.

Kendall: "Bianca, I wish that were true. I do. But the only reason Lena is with you is because Michael told her to seduce you."
Bianca: "What?"
Kendall: "Lena was following orders."


Bianca doesn't believe her, but...but there is something there, I'm not sure if it's the shadow of insecurity brought on by Kendall or by Bianca's precarious self-confidence when it comes to these things.

Kendall tells Bianca Michael got Lena the job at Enchantment and that Lena is a spy. And I laugh. Is that inappropriate? But look, Eden agrees with me!

Bianca: "That is ridiculous and completely lame! It's a cosmetic company, not the National Security Agency."

And there you have it: spies only spy for the NSA. I'll be sure to tell that to my spy friends, 'cause they have been going at it all wrong.

Kendall continues and tells Bianca that Michael had originally sent her to seduce the formula out of ChemistBoyd and that, once she failed, he sent Lena after Bianca. Bianca has had enough and charges Kendall. Heh, she’s so feisty!

Bianca: "You know what Kendall? Shut your filthy mouth, ok? If you say one more word against Lena I swear to you you're going to be the one needing a hospital."

I like this, I do. I like that Bianca is not only asserting herself, but standing up for her life and her relationship and her lover. However, how does this play in Peoria? I mean, Bianca has been out for years, or so I'm told, but has not really been involved with anyone, so those uncomfortable with the idea could just ignore the Gay Factor. Now we all know she had sex with Lena, she loves her, and she is a bit off kilter. In a sexy, growr way, but still off. So now this is reminding me of Willow and the magic and spells as a stand-in for sex and addiction and anger and bad, bad Willow behavior and...you see where I'm going with this? Not that I think AMC will go that way or that it would know how to in the first place, but seeing Bianca first slap Kendall so hard, then shoving her today...I don't know.


Lena’s Room - Back to Lena's room. Michael is playing that d*** SecretPoliceMother card again. Yawn. Lena, really, grow a d*** spine already. At least she tells him she can't wait for things to be over so that she won't have to look at this face again. I hear you Lena. Plus, that hair, which I guess is supposed to make him look hip and happening, is really just making him look like an abandoned and rain-soaked poodle. Anyway, Michael has another job for Lena.


Another Interlude - Oh dear god: it's those other people again! There's a jar of gum next to me; the label says there are 365 pieces inside: I decide this is a good time to count them all. Then I build a miniature mall with the green pieces and a plane with the white ones. Oh, commercials: I can watch those.


The Hospital - Erica and Jack again: I open half an ear to the dialogue just in case either Bianca or Lena are mentioned, but I get distracted wondering who is shaving Jack. And who is applying wax to his hair? The phone rings, and it's Lena for Erica. This next bit happens later, but I'll recap it now.

LaKane, who is now onto Lena, plays along and listened to Lena's worries about Michael using dummy corporations to buy Enchantment stock. Erica reminds Lena they put a Poison Pill in place and that will, in turn, bite Michael in the *ss once the price begins to drop. Thing is, I'm pretty sure Lena did no such thing and Michael will get a big bite of Enchantment before Erica catches on. After they hang up, Erica has a Diva Moment and says: "Oh god, please let Kendall get through to Bianca before she loses her heart to that scheming witch!" Yeah, not the words I'd have used, either.


Interlude - Again with the people whose lives are as riveting as my father's jokes. I go get some broccoli and think about deforestation.


The Hospital – Kendall’s still talking.

Kendall: "Look Bianca, I know how much this hurts, but it's only going to get worse if this...thing with Lena continues."

Oh Kendall. You just referred to Bianca's first relationship as a "thing." If she punches your nose now, I'm gonna hold you down till she's done.

Bianca: "Thing? With Lena? She cares about me."


Kendall drones on and then ends up comparing Lena to Michael and Bianca to herself.

Bianca: "Don't compare me to you, either."
Kendall: "Why not? More than anything we both want someone to love us. To believe in us. Maybe that need to be loved...maybe...maybe we inherited that from our mother."


PVU - Maggie is back. I have actually never heard her voice, so I let the tape run. Don't know if this will be significant later on, so I might as well mention it: SpikyHairBoy has copied off of her midterm, but the teacher thinks she is the one who cheated. SPB is her boyfriend. I think.


The Hospital - Bianca is now sitting down while Kendall is still talking about Lena and her evil Polish ways. Bianca decides it's time to be logical and posits that Lena, were she really after the formula, cold have gone directly to ChemistBoyd to get it. Kendall retorts that Lena might have struck out with him and then decided to go to Bianca. Bianca is still not buying it: Lena, after all, has never asked her for anything. After 35 seconds, Bianca decides logic blows and tacks again.

Bianca: "What's in this for you Kendall? You don't care if I give away Enchantment secrets!"
Kendall: "It's not Enchantment I'm concerned about."


Oh no. No, no, no, no, no. You are not going to make me give Kendall a good nickname, d*** it!

Bianca: "Right. So since when are you concerned with my feelings?"
Kendall: "It's too complicated to get into this now, but trust me: I am telling you this for your own good."
Bianca: "Now you sound like my mother!"

Oh! Now it's Kendall's turn to get predatory and she grabs Bianca.

Kendall: "Our mother."

And just when things were going so well! Trust me, I am telling you this for your own good! Uhm...where was I? Oh, right: Bianca now gets one more reason to hope this whole Let's-Unmask-The-Older-Sexy-Pole is just a sick plan.

Bianca: "So this is what this is about. You're jealous. You just can't bear to see me happy. You're just such a cruel and vicious excuse for a human being that..."

Erica! Mothers do have the best sense of timing, don't they?

Erica: "Bianca, stop. Kendall is just trying to save you."

Are you looking at Bianca's face? Do you see that? That's the look I get when I think I've stopped my cat's mad dash to the roof via the balcony.


Lena’s Suite - Michael the wet poodle is still in Lena's room, though she can't wait for him to leave.

Michael: "You're in such a hurry to get rid of me: you know, I remember a time when you wanted me to take it slow."
Lena: "Too bad you never did."

Ouch! Good, but, ouch! Gotta love the expression on Lena's face for this exchange: I decide she is thinking about Bianca and has realized there is no need to compare and contrast.

Michael now wants Lena to use Bianca to gain access to Erica's Penthouse to look for the formula there.


The Hospital - It's a Kane family reunion.

Bianca: "Oh my god, you put her up to this, didn't you? You are double-teaming me."
Erica: "I asked Kendall to speak to you about Lena, yes."
Bianca: "So what did she offer you Kendall? Forgiveness? A place in her heart? Don't hold your breath because it ain't happening."
Kendall: "I'm not doing this for Erica's approval, ok Bianca? The only thing Erica and I have in common is wanting to protect you."
Bianca: "You know I honestly cannot believe you would team up with Kendall to do this. I mean, are you so unable to accept who I am that you would make a deal with the devil just to split me and Lena up?"


No, Bianca. Erica is Lucifer's bride, not Kendall.

Kendall: "Hey!"

You go Kendall: let that indignation out.

Erica decides it's time to move away from Satan and join PFLAG for the next 3 minutes.

Erica: "Sweetheart, if you meet a woman who really cares about you, who really were to love you, I would accept that. I would embrace that, I promise you. But Lena, Lena is using you."
Bianca: "Says who? Says Kendall?"

Kendall: "Bianca, it's true. She was working with Michael way before she ever came to Pine Valley."

Erica is now waving that Rainbow Flag, using it as a beacon for all beached lesbians everywhere:

Erica: "And honey, to tell you the truth, I don't even think that Lena is really gay. I think she is just pretending to be gay so she can get close to you."

Oh, bad, bad choice Erica. Now Bianca will tell you exactly why you're wrong: I just hope she does it with more tact than Cartman ever did when he informed his friends that his "Lebanese" teacher liked to "lick carpet."

Bianca: "You know what mom? I have news for you. Lena is not pretending. I would have noticed when we spent the night together last night. Lena is most definitely gay and she loves me, which is more than I can say about you."

There you go then, that answers that. More subtle than Cartman, but death on a platter for Mommie Dearest.


TOMORROW ON AMC: The usual riveting crap, plus Bianca confronts Lena about her affair.





PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Lena parts are indicated in red for those who only want a Lena fix

Lena returned from Enchantment to find Michael waiting for her.
Lena: Hello Michael.
Michael: How did you know I was here?
Lena: I saw the slime trail leading from the elevator to my room.
Michael: Did you get me the formula?
Lena: No, it wasn't in the safe. There was nothing in there but a bunch of old engagement rings.

At the hospital Jack had a surprise for Erica.
Jack: Let's get married right now, here in the hospital.
Erica: Are you sure? The last guy I married in a hospital bed had to be cremated and it took him ten years to get his ashes together and come back from the dead. But hey, let's go for it.
Jack: On second thought, maybe we should wait.

Kendall tried to convince Bianca that Lena was not being honest with her.
Kendall: She's working for Michael Bianca. Lena and I atually have a lot in common. Michael has used both of us to try to get Boyd's formula. Also we've both been exposed to the same STD's.
Bianca: I don't believe you. Lena wouldn't do such a thing. You're just jealous because I have someone wonderful.
Kendall: Face it Bianca. We're Erica Kane's daughters. We're doomed to a life of one failed romance after another.
Bianca: You're hateful and evil.
Erica: Bianca, how many times have I told you not to talk to your sister like that?
Bianca: Uh - never.
Erica: Well I'm telling you now. Kendall and I are only trying to protect you. We're on the same side here.
Kendall: Did you just feel an earthquake?
Erica: Actually I think it was a lightning bolt.

Later Bianca went to Lena's hotel room.
Bianca: :::gasp::: A slime trail from the elevator, slime on the doorknob - Kendall was right. What a plot twist. What next - Aidan speaking clearly?

Maggie and Henry met in the classroom.
Maggie: Did you bring your guitar to play for the class?
Henry: No. I just showed up to remind people that even if the rest of the show is good today, they still have us to deal with.
Maggie: Professor Stevens asked me to meet her here. I wonder what it could be about?
Professor Stevens: It's about that chemistry test you guys took months ago. I've finally figured out that you must have cheated. I would have caught on sooner but frankly, I FF all of your scenes.

Aidan continued his proposal to Maria.
Aidan: Will yew marry me Mowreen? Oi thank we cewd mike a great couple.
Maria: I don't know. What if I get my memory back and my feelings for Edmund return?
Aidan: Oi'm not worried about that. Ooo ever get's their memory back on a soap? Marry me and share me spotted dick for the rest of me life.
Maria: All right. What could possibly come between us now?
:::::phone rings::::::
Edmund: Maria, Maddie just witnessed a brutal murder in the park. You must interrupt whatever you're doing and come at once.
Maria: I'll be right there. Boy, I'm glad you didn't call during yesterday's episode. It would have been a lot harder to stop what I was doing then.

At the hospital Maria comforted Maddie.
Maria: Poor little thing. But at least the bad man with the gun didn't see you so he won't turn up trying to kill the only living witness to his crime or anything.
Maddie: He did see me. He pointed a gun at me just the way Sam does sometimes. But this gun was real and he didn't say " If only you were gone I might get some attention around here" the way Sam always does.
Maria: It's OK Maddie. You just lie here all alone and frightened. I'll go talk to your daddy and tell him you can ID the murderer in the park. Flanders: Good idea. I'll just go and fluff Maddie's pillows, know what I'm sayin? Ssssllloooooowwwly I turned, step by step, murder in my heart.
Chris: So are dey even goin to find my body? Did Flanders put me in de trunk of his car or what? Maybe I ain't really dead. Nah - what are de chances of dat happenin?



QUOTES

Kendall: Lena and I have a lot in common. Bianca, your girlfriend is sleeping with my boyfriend.

Michael: Finally, that miracle in a jar is mine. Lena, this is going to make us billions.

Kendall: Lena has been working with Michael since she came to Pine Valley. He got her that job at Enchantment. She's his spy there.
Bianca: That is ridiculous and completely lame. It's a cosmetics company, not the national security agency.

Kendall: Michael tried to use me to get the formula out of Boyd. When I failed, he sent Lena to seduce it out of you.
Bianca: Oh, you know what, Kendall? Shut your filthy mouth, ok? If you say one more word against Lena, I swear to you, you're going to be the one needing a hospital.

Michael: [Y]ou better not be holding out on me. One call to the Polish authorities, your mother's in prison before you can board a plane.

Lena: Michael, if I could get you the formula, I would. We could stop this sick game, and I wouldn't have to look at your face again.
Michael: You never used to think our games were sick until you got tangled up with little baby Kane.

Michael: You better not forget who's calling the shots here. Now, I’ve got another job for you. And this time, you'd better succeed.

Kendall: I know how much this hurts, ok, but it's only going to get worse if this thing with Lena continues.
Bianca: "This thing with Lena"?

Bianca: You know what, Kendall, don't compare me to you, either.
Kendall: Why not? More than anything, we both want someone to love us, to believe in us. Maybe -- maybe that need to be loved -- maybe we inherited that from our mother.

Jack: I'm saying I’m going to call judge Horowitz and I’m going to cancel. I'm going to postpone our wedding, and I want you to get out of here and go kick Michael Cambias and Lena Kundera's collective b****.

Lena: Michael, I’m not about to compromise my mother's safety to save Erica Kane.

Michael: Oh, you're in such a hurry to get rid of me. You know, I remember there was a time when you -- you know, you wanted me to take it slow.
Lena: Well, too bad you never did.

Lena: Michael, I’m an employee. I don't have access to Erica’s private home.
Michael: Yeah, well, Bianca does. I'm sure your little lover will let you in.

Bianca: Oh, my God. You put her up to this, didn't you? You two are double-teaming me.

Erica: Hey, sweetheart, if you meet a woman who really cares about you, who really were to love you, I would accept that. I would embrace that, I promise you. But Lena -- Lena is using you.

Erica: And, honey, to tell you the truth, I don't even think that Lena is really gay. I think she's just pretending to be gay so she can get close to you.
Bianca: You know what, Mom? I have news for you. Lena is not pretending. I would've noticed when we spent the night together last night. Lena is most definitely gay and she loves me, which is more than I can say about you.

Lena: I will not use Bianca that way again.
Michael: Would you rather your mother go to prison, hmm? You wormed your way into Bianca's life. Getting into her mommy's inner sanctum shouldn't be much of a challenge.
Lena: I hate you.
Michael: Well, that hurts. Get me what I want, you'll never have to see me again. I'll be waiting, darling.



TRANSCRIPT

Unverified in non-clip parts
Annotated transcript by "C"

***** (clip a) [Previously on AMC: Kendall telling Bianca that Lena's Michael's lover and spy]

Previously on "All My Children" --
Aidan: Will you marry me?
[amc030508a-inc begins]
Kendall: Lena is lying to you. She is working with Michael Cambias. They're lovers.
[amc030508a-inc ends]
Erica: Chris is going after whoever it was who shot you.

***** (clip b) [Kendall speaks more to Bianca on the "Lena matter" (no Lena)]

[amc030508b starts]
Kendall: What did you hit me for?
Bianca: I finally have somebody great in my life, and I'm not going to let you poison it with your lies.
Kendall: Bianca, I'm not lying to you. Lena is using you. She targeted you and Enchantment --
Bianca: Kendall, you don't know anything about her!
Kendall: Yes, I do. Lena and I have a lot in common. Bianca, your girlfriend is sleeping with my boyfriend.

***** (clip c) [Michael goes to Lena's hotel room]

[amc030508c starts]
[Lena comes to her hotel room and opens the door, she looks in and gasps]
Lena: Michael.
Michael: Did you get it? Did you get into the safe?
Lena: Yes.
Michael: Oh! Finally, that miracle in a jar is mine. Lena, this is going to make us billions. Oh.

***** (clip d) [Bianca is in denial that Lena would cheat on her (no Lena)]

Bianca: Lena is not cheating on me. She wouldn't. [amc030508d-inc starts] Not with Michael Cambias, not with anybody.
Kendall: Bianca, I wish that were true. I do. But the only reason that Lena is with you is because Michael told her to seduce you.
Bianca: What?
Kendall: Lena was following orders.
Bianca: I don't believe you.
Kendall: Listen to me, ok? Lena has been working with Michael since she came to Pine Valley. He got her that job at Enchantment. She's his spy there.
Bianca: That is ridiculous and completely lame. It's a cosmetics company, not the national security agency.
Kendall: Bianca, you know that Enchantment is getting a new product that's going to be worth a fortune.
Bianca: Yeah, Boyd’s anti-aging cream. So what?
Kendall: So -- so Michael tried to use me to get the formula out of Boyd. When I failed, he sent Lena to seduce it out of you.
Bianca: Oh, you know what, Kendall? Shut your filthy mouth, ok? If you say one more word against Lena, I swear to you, you're going to be the one needing a hospital.

***** (clip e) [Lena tells Michael that the formula was not in the Enchantment safe]

[amc030508e starts]
Lena: I'm afraid your celebration is premature. The formula wasn't in the safe. Erica must be taking extra precautions with it.

Michael: Oh, d*** it. You know, you -- you better not be holding out on me. One call to the Polish authorities, your mother's in prison before you can board a plane.
Lena: Michael, if I could get you the formula, I would. We could stop this sick game, and I wouldn't have to look at your face again.
Michael: You never used to think our games were sick until you got tangled up with little baby Kane.
Lena: Don’t.
Michael: You better not forget who's calling the shots here. Now, I’ve got another job for you. And this time, you'd better succeed.

***** (clip f) [Lena calls Erica]

[amc030508f starts]
Jack: Jack Montgomery. Yeah, right here. It's for you.
Erica: Hello?
Lena: Erica, I’m so glad I found you.

***** (clip g) [Kendall tries to get Bianca to see that Lena is bad news (no Lena)]

[amc030508g starts]
Kendall: Look, Bianca, I know how much this hurts, ok, but it's only going to get worse if this thing with Lena continues.
Bianca: "This thing with Lena"? She cares about me.
Kendall: Are you sure about that? I mean, think about it, Bianca. Has Lena ever acted weird? Has she ever tried to gain access where she doesn't belong?
Bianca: No. She's not using me.
Kendall: Well, I said the same thing about Michael.
Bianca: You know, Kendall, don't compare Lena to your boyfriend the corporate raider.
Kendall: Oh, you know what? This is completely useless. I wouldn't listen, either, when everyone tried to warn me about Michael. I was in love and it felt so good, I didn't --
Bianca: You know what, Kendall, don't compare me to you, either.
Kendall: Why not? More than anything, we both want someone to love us, to believe in us. Maybe -- maybe that need to be loved -- maybe we inherited that from our mother.

***** (clip h) [Erica plays along with Lena's news of the poison pill corporate move]

[amc030508h starts]
Erica: Tell me, Lena, what is Michael Cambias up to now?
Lena: There's been a run on Enchantment stock. He's buying it through dummy corporations, but I'm sure that Cambias is behind it. Erica, he's trying to take over your company.
Erica: Well, yes, Lena, I'm -- I’m aware of that. But as you know, there's no need for us to be concerned about that because the way we've set it up is that once Cambias buys enough stock, the price will drop significantly, and he'll realize that he has been wasting his time as well as his money.
Lena: Yes, of course, you're right. He'll never expect the poison pill I put in place.
Erica: Exactly. What would I do without you, Lena?
Lena: I'm just doing my job.
Erica: And you do it so well. Really. Ok, then I will see you back at the office. Thank you. [Erica hangs up] Oh, God. Please let Kendall get through to Bianca before Bianca loses her heart to that scheming witch.
Jack: Well, I tell you what, I never thought I'd see the day that you'd need Kendall Hart for anything.
Erica: I don't love the idea. I'm not happy about it, believe me.
Jack: You know what, Erica? It seems like you've got a pretty full plate right now.
Erica: I do. But I still want to marry you. And as soon as that judge shows up, I'm going to get Bianca over here. That'll keep her out of the clutches of that traitor.
Jack: For what, maybe an hour?
Erica: That woman cannot get her claws into my daughter. I just can't allow that. Jack, isn't there something that you can do? Something? I mean, can't you arrest Michael Cambias?
Jack: I'd love to. But we can't prove that he's broken any laws, sweetheart.
Erica: I know. I know you're right. And -- and I’m just playing into his hands by getting so worked up, but I realize that now. I -- I should just forget about Michael Cambias and Lena and just focus on us.
Jack: I can't tell you how much I love you for wanting that. But you've got a major crisis on your hands. When we get married, I don't want you to be distracted on our wedding day.
Erica: What are you saying?
Jack: I'm saying I’m going to call judge Horowitz and I’m going to cancel. I'm going to postpone our wedding, and I want you to get out of here and go kick Michael Cambias and Lena Kundera's collective butts.
Erica: Are you sure?
Jack: I am positive.
Erica: Oh Jack, you are the most understanding, most thoughtful man on the planet.
Jack: You can kiss me. It doesn't hurt.
[Erica laughs]
Jack: Ooh, maybe a little. Listen, just knowing that you're ready to say "I do" -- that's going to keep me going, but not for too long.
Erica: Oh, Jack Montgomery, I am going to marry you before too long. And when I do, you are going to be the only person on my mind. I promise.

***** (clip i) [Bianca thinks Kendall's making up all the Lena stuff just to be cruel (no Lena)]

[amc030508i starts]
Bianca: If Lena wanted Boyd’s formula, she could've gotten it straight from him. She didn't need to go through me.
Kendall: Well, maybe Boyd turned her down like he did to me, so then Michael sent her after you. I mean, come on, Bianca, you're close with Erica, you're close with Boyd. You could give Lena far more access to Enchantment.
Bianca: But she's never asked me for anything.
Kendall: But she will. This is why I'm trying to warn you.
Bianca: Why? What's in this for you, Kendall? I mean, you don't care if I give away Enchantment secrets.
Kendall: It's not Enchantment I’m concerned about.
Bianca: Right. So, since when are you concerned with my feelings?
Kendall: It's -- it's too complicated to get into it now, ok? But trust me, I'm telling you this for your own good.
Bianca: You know what? Now you sound like my mother.
Kendall: Our mother.
Bianca: So this is what that's about, huh? You're jealous. You just can't bear to see me happy. You're just such a cruel and vicious excuse for a human being that you --
Erica: Bianca, stop! Kendall is just trying to save you.

***** (clip j) [Michael tells Lena to look for Boyd's formula in Erica's penthouse]

Lena: Erica is convinced that the poison pill I set up is [amc030508j-inc starts] going to stop you.
Michael: You'd better not give her any reason to believe otherwise.
Lena: Michael, I’m not about to compromise my mother's safety to save Erica Kane.
Michael: Good. Good.
Lena: Now will you go?
Michael: Oh, you're in such a hurry to get rid of me. You know, I remember there was a time when you -- you know, you wanted me to take it slow.
Lena: Well, too bad you never did.
Michael: Hmm. So what do you think Erica did with Boyd’s formula?
Lena: I have no idea.
Michael: Well, what about her penthouse? Does she have a safe in there?
Lena: How should I know?
Michael: Well, I think you should get in there, scope it out.
Lena: Michael, I’m an employee. I don't have access to Erica’s private home.
Michael: Yeah, well, Bianca does. I'm sure your little lover will let you in.

***** (clip k) [Bianca finds out that Erica put Kendall up to telling her about Lena; Bianca tells her mother that she slept with Lena (no Lena)]

[amc030508k starts]
Bianca: Oh, my God. You put her up to this, didn't you? You two are double-teaming me.
Erica: I asked Kendall to speak to you about Lena, yes.
Bianca: So what did she offer you, Kendall? Forgiveness? A place in her heart? Don't hold your breath because it ain't happening.
Kendall: I'm not doing this for Erica’s approval. Ok, Bianca? The only thing Erica and I have in common is wanting to protect you.
Bianca: You know, I honestly cannot believe that you would team up with Kendall to do this. I mean, are you so unable to accept who I am that you would make a deal with the devil just to split me and Lena up?
Erica: Hey, sweetheart, if you meet a woman who really cares about you, who really were to love you, I would accept that. I would embrace that, I promise you. But Lena -- Lena is using you.
Bianca: Says who? Says -- says Kendall?
Kendall: Bianca, it's true. She was working with Michael way before she ever came to Pine Valley.
Erica: And, honey, to tell you the truth, I don't even think that Lena is really gay. I think she's just pretending to be gay so she can get close to you.
Bianca: You know what, Mom? I have news for you. Lena is not pretending. I would've noticed when we spent the night together last night. Lena is most definitely gay and she loves me, which is more than I can say about you.

***** (clip l) [Kendall apologizes to Erica for failing (no Lena)]

[mc030508l starts]
Kendall: I'm sorry. I tried to get through to her.
Erica: It's not your fault. It's Lena’s -- Lena’s and Michael Cambias.
Kendall: Well, I've been where she is, and I know she's going to get her heart crushed.

***** (clip m) [Michael threatenes Lena's mother again and leaves; Bianca sees him leave Lena's room]

[amc030508m starts]
Lena: I will not use Bianca that way again.
Michael: Would you rather your mother go to prison, hmm? You wormed your way into Bianca's life. Getting into her mommy's inner sanctum shouldn't be much of a challenge.
Lena: I hate you.
Michael: Well, that hurts. Get me what I want, you'll never have to see me again. I'll be waiting, darling.
[While Michael is leaving Lean's room, Bianca sees him]

***** (clip n) [Next on AMC: Bianca accuses Lena to her face about her affair with Michael]

On the next "All My Children" --
[amc030508n-inc starts]
Bianca: Did you think that I wouldn't find out that you're having an affair?
[amc030508n-inc ends]
Boyd: If you're going to take Michael down, I want in.
Maggie: You're going to kick me out of school, aren't you?
Flanders: Hey!

If anyone has complete clips or access to a videotape or other media with full clips on them, please contact me ASAP, Kym

The above described clips can also be found on my shared folder on AIM (http://www.aim.com to download). My user name on AIM is kymtaborn. E-mail me with your AIM user name (ktaborn@lightspeed.net) and I will give you access to the shared folder. When you have access, you can right click my user name on your buddy list and then click on get file. That should get you into the shared folder. If you have problems, then tweak your firewall. The downloads are slow because it has to go through the AIM filter AND often there are a lot of people downloading along with you. I apologize for the slow speed but this is the only way that I can distribute the clips at this time.

I am eliciting volunteers to host the clips throughout the web. If you have 5-25megs of space you can lend to this project, please let me know!
