From The Official Site at ABC.com:

Lena realizes something is troubling Bianca. Bianca asks Lena to leave when Erica arrives. Erica tries to get Bianca to tell her what is bothering her.

From About All My Children

Bianca pulls back from Lena as she tells her to leave her alone! Lena was going to help her with her buttons, but Bianca snaps that she doesn’t need any help, “Don’t bother me!” When Lena asks what’s wrong with her, Bianca insists she’s fine and asks what’s everybody’s problem? Officer Morrison comes into the room saying he heard shouting and asks if everything’s all right? Bianca exclaims, “Oh god, who called the police? I can’t deal with this right now—it hurts enough already!” She runs from the room, with a bewildered Lena following.

Bianca demands to know what the cop is doing here and Lena explains that her Uncle Jack has him looking out for her—she does know Michael is out of jail, doesn’t she? Bianca agrees Kendall told her last night; Lena thanks the officer and assures him there’s no problem. Lena asks if that’s why she’s been acting like this? Is she upset because of Michael? Lena insists the protection is just a precaution, and promises nothing is going to happen to her. Bianca says she’s fine and she’s sorry about before; she didn’t sleep well last night because of the storm, and she’s just not herself today. When Lena suggests they go upstairs and lie down, Bianca quickly says no. Lena knows something else is bothering her. Erica comes in as Bianca tells Lena to just leave it alone, “I need you to leave!” Lena exclaims that now she knows something is wrong, but Bianca says she just needs to talk to her mother. Lena reluctantly leaves...

Erica looks at her daughter and says Lena said she knew something was wrong, and she was right—she can see it, too. She pleads with Bianca to tell her, whatever it is, she can tell her. Bianca turns to her, her face full of pain.

From Soap Slut

Bianca freaks out when Lena tries to touch her. Lena’s guard hears the shouting and comes in to check out the situation. Bianca loses her s*** some more that someone called the police and leaves the room. Lena follows her...

Bianca and Lena return to the living room as Lena explains about her bodyguard. Bianca “oh yeah”s that Kendall had told her about that. Lena thinks that Bianca is upset because Kendall might have overexaggerated the threat *sshole imposed and unintentionally scared her little sister. Sigh. The Clue Train rambles along on its track with nary a passenger. Lena still isn’t convinced that Bianca is 100%. Erica arrives as Bianca dons her b***** tone and tells Lena to just “leave it alone.”..

Bianca wants to talk to Erica alone. Lena runs the gambit of confused emotions across her face as she resigns herself to leaving...

Over at Fusion the girls haven't quite achieved their quota of "Carlos is hot" references for the month.
Greenlee: Get away from him Simone. I mean it!
Simone: You just want him for yourself because he's so hot. :::kaching::::
Greenlee: No, I just don't want you to get hurt. I have a strange feeling a huge piece of electronic equipment is about to fall on his head.
Producer: GREENLEE!
Greenlee: Oh all right. At least let's go fight about him upstairs. I may have to talk about him but I don't have to be on camera with him.
Simone: I should be able to date Carlos. He's so hot. :::kaching:::
Greenlee: I just don't think you should go after my old boyfriend no matter how he is. :::kaching:::
Maggie: I just came to see Carlos. He's hot. :::kaching::::Where is the little hottie?:::kaching::::
Simone: Hey, no fair getting two bonuses at once.
Maggie: Sorry, I need the extra cash. I'm in med school you know.

Liza and Tad talked about getting back into dating.
Liza: I think you should fall in love again and I'm just the woman to see that it happens.
Tad: Well, Ok, if you're sure.
Liza: I'm going to help you find the perfect woman for you on a computer dating service.
Tad: I thought you wanted us to be together.
Liza: I did. But the angry villagers outside my apartment every morning are starting to make me nervous. Do you see anyone on this website that you like?
Tad: This one is cute. RosannaFromOakdale. Aww, too bad. Her profile says she's already taken. You know, if you're going to find the perfect girl for me then I should get to find the perfect guy for you.
Liza: I guess that could work. Just don't let the angry villagers influence your selection. I don't want my mystery date to be the Grim Reaper.

The Valley Inn bar was the place to be.
Mary: Hello Erica. Has Jack dumped you yet for keeping his daughter from him? :::smirk:::
Erica: Hello Mary. I'm surprised to see you here. I heard they were writing people out. Are you sure you're still employed? :::hiss::::
Mary: Oh Jack, so nice to see you. Would you like to have dinner or maybe a round the world cruise for two sometime?
Erica: Jack and I have to talk to the caterers about the menu for our reception Mary. Jack, I hope you told them no niblets were to be on the menu.
Jack: Sometimes I miss being in intensive care.
Mary: Kendall dear, I think we have something in common. We both care about Greenlee and we'd both like to stick it to Erica.
Kendall: What are you talking about?
Mary: Erica just hurts people. Like my poor precious Jackson who loves me even if he doesn't realize it. Wouldn't you like to see them break up?
Kendall: Get with the program Mary. Erica and I are on the same side now. You mess with my mommy and you mess with me lady. Greenlee: What's going on here?
Mary: I was just talking to Kendall about Erica and Jack. Grainy dear, I'm really doing this for you.
Greenlee: Greenlee.
Mary: Of course. I just think every girl should have a father like Jack. Especially a girl like you who's mother was his old girlfriend. There now. Do you think I've dropped enough hints?

Mia and Aidan talked at the garage.
Mia: So do you work here now?
Aidan: Oi do part toim. Oi needed a little extra cash to keep me spotted dick in the stoil to which it ad become accustomed.
Mia: Don't you live at the Pine Cone?
Aidan: Oi didn't sigh it was a lot of stoil. Oi loik to fix cars. But Oi don't wont to bore yew.
Mia: Why should I be any different from the audience? I know. I'll just crawl under this car with you even though I'm wearing a dress. Then we'll roll out from under the car in front of Kendall looking all cute and funny. Then she'll be jealous. Won't that be a hoot?
Kendall: Is this the sort of thing I'm going to have to put up with?
Producer: It's this or join the Carlos is hot gang.
Kendall: Oh no. It's Mia and Aidan rolling out from under the car. I'm jealous.


Lena: Let's just go upstairs and lie down --

Bianca: Lena, I need you to leave.

Lena: All right, now I know something's wrong.

Erica: Lena said she knew that something was wrong. Lena was right. There is something wrong, sweetheart. I can see it, too.

***** (clip a) [Bianca tells Lena to leave her alone]

[amc030711a starts]
Bianca: Oh, Lena, please, leave me -- leave me alone.
Lena: But I was just going to help you with your button.
Bianca: No, I don't need help, ok? Just don't -- don't bother me.
Lena: Bianca, what's wrong?
Bianca: Nothing, nothing, nothing, ok? What is everybody's problem?
Officer: I heard shouting in here. Is everything ok?
Bianca: Oh, my God! Oh, my God. Who called the police? God, I can't deal with this right now! It hurts enough already!
Lena: Bianca, what --

***** (clip b) [Bianca asks Lena to leave]

[amc030711b starts]
Lena: Officer Morrison isn't here to hurt anyone. Bianca, I'm not about to get arrested again if that's what you're worried about.
Bianca: Ok, so what is he doing here?
Lena: Your Uncle Jack has him looking out for me. You know Michael Cambias is out on bail.
Bianca: Yeah. Right, right. Kendall told me last night.
Ofc. Morrison: So there's no problem here?
Lena: No. Thank you, Officer. Is that why you've been acting like this?
Bianca: What? Like what?
Lena: Well, I can tell you're obviously upset. Is it because of Michael?
Bianca: No.
Lena: Ok. Good. Hey -- look, Kendall probably made it sound much worse than it is. The guard is just here as a precaution, but nothing is going to happen to me, I promise. So you're ok?
Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine. Uh -- and I'm sorry about before. God, I’m -- I didn't sleep well last night because of the storm and everything, and I'm just not myself today, I guess.
Lena: It's ok. Let's just go upstairs and lie down --
Bianca: No, no, no, that's ok. Thank you. What?
Lena: I'm sorry if I’m wrong about this, but I get the feeling that something else is bothering you.
Bianca: God, just leave it alone!
[Erica enters]
Erica: Hello, Lena.
Lena: Erica, hello. Look, something has come up. Bianca and I need some time --
Bianca: Oh, no -- actually, Lena, I need you to leave.

***** (clip c) [Lena knows something is wrong]

[amc030711c starts]
Lena: All right, now I know something's wrong.
Bianca: No, Lena. I need to talk to my mother. Ok?
Lena: Ok. I'll call you.
[Lena leaves]
Erica: Honey, where have you been? Did you get my messages?
Bianca: Yeah, I did. I got them, and I wanted to call you back, Mom --
Erica: Oh, no, honey, that's all right. Listen, I know we're all a little rattled with Michael Cambias being out on bail again. I assume that Lena told you?
Bianca: Yeah, and Kendall, too.
Erica: Well, it's going to be all over soon. Thank goodness.
Bianca: Yeah. Mom, are you feeling ok? You sound --
Erica: Oh, I'm fine. I just have a little laryngitis, but I'm fine.
Bianca: Ok. Mom, Kendall also said that -- that you two made up?
Erica: We cleared up some things.
Bianca: About what happened to you, about Richard Fields? She said that you had some kind of a breakthrough or something.
Erica: A breakthrough. Well, we'll see, but talking to Kendall really did help a lot.
Bianca: How did you do it? I mean, how did you even think about it? Mom, how do you get over being raped?

***** (clip d) [Erica and Bianca talk about Erica's rape (no Lena)]
[amc030711d starts]
Erica: "How do you get over being raped"? Well, you don't really ever completely get over it, honey. You know, not -- not really ever. Well, much the way that you never really completely get over the death of someone you love; but, I mean, why do you want to talk about these things when so many good things are happening right now?
Bianca: Mom, I -- I would like to talk about this right now -- I mean, if you can.
Erica: All right, of course. Yes, I can. Now I can after last night, more than I ever could, and maybe that was the breakthrough.
Bianca: Because of Kendall? I mean, I thought that what her father did to you was the reason for so long that you couldn't make up with her.
Erica: Yes, but last night -- last night, Kendall wasn't asking me for anything. Sit down, sweetheart. Last night, Kendall wasn't asking me to give her anything I couldn't. In fact, she was the one doing the giving when I needed it. When I saw Michael --
Bianca: Wait -- you saw him?
Erica: Oh, but I was fine. I mean, I was perfectly safe, honey. It was -- he was still behind bars. It was before he was released, but he said some very, very horrific and -- and really horrible things about my being raped, and -- and the storm really forced me back to that awful night.
Bianca: And then you -- you had to relive all that -- all that pain. Oh, God, mom, how did you do it? How did you even think about it? How -- how did you survive that?
Erica: Getting it out really helped. Telling Kendall all I was feeling really helped to put a lot of it in perspective, and that was a really good thing because I should've done it years ago. I should've talked about it. Because keeping it quiet, keeping it all bottled up inside me -- honey, that was one of the worst things I ever could've done.

***** (clip e) [Erica says that Lena was right, something is wrong (Lena mention)]

[amc030711e starts]
Bianca: Mom, what happened to you was so horrible. I mean, you couldn't have told Grandma about it.
Erica: Oh, yes, honey, I could have, and I did. Grandma was the only one who ever knew, and -- and we had our problems, but boy, grandma just loved me so much. She was always on my side. Always. Just the way you know, honey, I would always be on your side. Always. So if there's anything you ever need to get out or tell me -- anything, honey, no matter how frightening it might seem, sweetheart -- well, I mean, if Kendall and I could make a try at peace, well, hey, you and I, with all our years together -- we can get through anything.
Bianca: Oh, Mom --
Erica: Yes? Lena said she knew that something was wrong. Lena was right. There is something wrong, sweetheart. I can see it, too. Please, honey. Whatever it is, you have to tell me. You can. Whatever it is, tell me.
