SYNOPSIS

Bianca hallucinates thinking Erica is Michael taunting her about Lena and finally tells Erica that she was raped (no Lena)

Speaking of, Erica leads her away from the door, telling her not to be afraid, since it's just the two of them. Bianca flashes back to telling Michael that there were people upstairs in the house, and Michael replying that there weren't; he had checked, there was no need to lie, and they would be together for a while. Binks gasps, wrenches away from Erica, telling her not to touch her, but trips on the coffee table. She flashes back again, this time to telling Michael he should get some therapy, which angered him, so he threw his lemonade glass. Match cut to an overturned water glass on the penthouse carpet. Erica tells her it's all right, turns her around to look at her, and tells her to take a deep breath and try to relax. Bianca stares at her terrified and flashes back again. This time, Michael is drawing her to him to dance; he tells her to close her eyes, maybe pretend he's Lena. Binks snatches her hands away from Erica and backs up against the couch arm. "Get away from me," she says. "You're not her. You'll never be her." "Bianca, it's me," Erica says, "it's Mommy." Binks climbs off the couch and knocks over one of the end tables before crouching tearfully near the fireplace. "I'm not going to let you do this to me again. I won't drink your damn lemonade. I won't dance with you. I won't let you inside me." Gah, could they exploit this any more? Erica begs Bianca to come back and tells her that she's "home" and "safe." Binks is backed up against the fireplace, and she flashes back to Michael throwing her onto the couch, pinning her down with his knee, and trying to roll up his sleeve before she kicked him away, ran and grabbed a poker, and raised it to strike him. Now, backed up against Erica's fireplace, she reaches out, grabs one of the pokers, and raises it up. "No, Bianca, no! No, honey!" Erica yells. Poor Susan Lucci. Poor Eden Riegel.

Coming whenever C.K. sends it to me. I am looking so forward to it. A day without CK's recap is like a day without sunshine. I need my vitamin E, you know. We all do. Yes, I must contain my anticipation. But it's sooo hard.



PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Jack and Greenlee sought shelter from the storm in a diner.
Greenlee: Why couldn't we just go back to the hotel?
Jack: Forget it. That place was crawling with annoying newbies. Let's stay here until the storm blows over and get to know each other.
Owner: Sorry sir. We're closed. The powers out.
Jack: You have a gas stove don't you? My daughter and I need to bond. We'll have some clam chowder.
Owner: Fine. Of course with the power out some of the ingredients may be spoiled but there's nothing like a little food poisoning to bring a family together.
Jack: You're cold. Why don't you put on this sweater?
Greenlee: I don't wanna wear that old sweater!
Jack: Looks like someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I just wanted to tell you Greenlee that I was very happy to find out that you were my daughter.
Greenlee: Because we connected that day in the hospital?
Jack: Yes. And because you're a really good character. What if I had gotten stuck with Mia or Simone as a long lost daughter? Or that awful Laurie that used to date JR.
Greenlee: I guess having you for a father is a pretty good deal too. At least you're a contract player and not some newbie. Maybe this will work out after all.
Jack: I think it will. Now finish your soup.
Greenlee: I don't wanna!
Jack: Finish your soup or there'll be no ice cream for you young lady.

Carlos and Juan Pablo talked.
Juan Pablo: You must leave as quickly as possible.
Carlos: That's what all those message board people say too. But I'm staying.
Juan Pablo: You can't. It's too dangerous. People have seen you on tv and they know where you are.
Carlos: I doubt it. This show rarely has ratings over 3.0 and most people FF all of my scenes.
Juan Pablo: I will arrange for the jet to take us back to Argentina. You have been gone a long time - long enough to have had Stuart as your art teacher in high school and to completely lose your accent.
Carlos: You'll have to go back to Argentina alone. I'm not leaving. I don't care how many rumors there are that I've been let go.
Juan Pablo: I won't go without my brother. Ah, the audience is so amazed by this that they are all unconcious. Hear them gasping?
Carlos: I think they're snoring.

Kendall confronted Michael.
Kendall: What did you do to my sister you pathetic piece of excrement?
Michael: So you've been missing me, have you Kendall. I'll just light this cigar and we'll talk.
Michael was blown into a million pieces as the cigar he lit turned out to be a stick of dynomite.
Michael: That didn't happen.
Lizzie: Not yet anyway.
Michael: My father is dying. Soon I will have inherited Cambiass Industries and the whole world will be at my feet.
Kendall: I wouldn't count on it. From what I hear most of the world is counting the days until you're killed off.
Michael: Pooh on the rest of the world. Give me a kiss Kendall.
Kendall: Blleccchhhhhh!
Michael: Ahh, the old "throw up to hide your desire for me" trick. Women have been using it on me for years.
Kendall: You'll pay for what you've done Michael.
Michael: I doubt it. You and that Lizzie person can persecute me all you want but it won't do you any good.
Lizzie: Don't be so sure about that.

Mia and Simone were at Fusion.
Mia: I still don't get it. We've only been in business since that awful "What Women Want" episode back around New Years. We basically give away all of our cosmetics instead of selling them. How can we possibly owe the IRS half a million dollars when we've never made a profit?
Simone: I think they're charging us penalties for the annoyance factor. The Sexiest Man contest alone has probably wracked up a good 250,000.
Mia: Oh look. We have 500,000 in our bank account. I wonder where that came from.
Simone: I left a message on Liza's answering machine. I'll bet she put it there.
Mia: You shouldn't have called her. I didn't want to bother her while she's hiding from the angry villagers.
Simone: I'm sure she's the one that gave us the money. Now I'll just send it to the IRS.
Mia: Are you sure you should do that?
Simone: Well, it's either that or buy shoes.:::giggle:::
Mia: :::sigh::::I love shoes. But I guess we should pay our taxes with it. :::sigh:::We really are a waste of air time today aren't we?
Simone: Yes. We're right up there on a level with Juan Pablo and Carlos.



QUOTES

Kendall: What in the h*** did you do to my sister?

Bianca: I'm not going to let you do this to me again. I won't drink your d**** lemonade. I won't dance with you. I won't let you inside me.

Michael: Well, that's because you fail to see the big picture. Now, I would've handed you the world gift-wrapped, but you chose what was behind door number two. You turned your back on me to win your mommy's love, and let me ask you something, Kendall. Where is mommy dearest now, hmm? I mean, if I know my irony, she's probably hanging out with Bianca, isn't she? That's what I thought. Yep. D***, I am good.

Michael: What are you going to do, Kendall, huh? What do you have in store for me? What can I hope for? What, you going to poison my cigars? Put battery acid in my after-shave lotion? Hmm?



TRANSCRIPT

Unverified in non-clip parts

***** (clip a) [Kendall suggests that Erica is projecting her fears onto Bianca (no Lena)]

[amc030812a starts]
Bianca: Mom?
Erica: Oh, Bianca. Thank god you're all right, honey.
Bianca: Why wouldn't I be?
Erica: Well, I've just been calling you everywhere, honey. Didn't you get my messages?
Bianca: My phone was turned off.
Erica: Oh.
Bianca: But then Boyd ran in to me and he said that you were looking for me?
[Thunder]
Bianca: Why? Um -- did Uncle Jack call? Is the wedding back on?
Erica: Oh, no. No, sweetheart, I just thought we could have dinner together. I mean, so much has happened.
Bianca: Yeah -- um -- I'm actually -- I'm tired. I just want to go to bed.
Erica: Well, won't you tell me where you were and, you know, how are you feeling?
Bianca: Mom, in the morning, ok? I -- I just need to crash.
Erica: The storm -- she's terrified like me. Oh. I can't believe this. I can't believe this is happening to my baby.
Kendall: Erica, you don't know if Michael did anything to Bianca.
Erica: Well, I pray to god that he didn't. But based on what David told me and what you've witnessed and what I've seen with my own eyes, I mean, Bianca is not herself. Something has her running scared.
Kendall: Ok, I know I'm not a shrink, but don't you think that maybe you're projecting your own fears onto Bianca?
[Thunder]
[Flashback]
[Erica screams]
Erica: Let go of me! No! Help!
Michael: You're going to -- thinking of taking it lying down, huh?
Erica: Let go of me, you --
Michael: You going to take it lying down --
Erica: Oh!
Michael: Like a lady? Is that it?
Erica: Help!
Michael: Come here.
Erica: Help!
Michael: Come here. Come here. Come on -- whoa, you're going to pay for that now. You're going to pay for that now.
[Thunder]
[End of flashback]
Erica: Get out of my house right now!

***** (clip b) [Erica gets jumpy during the storm (no Lena)]

[amc030812b starts]
[Thunder]
Kendall: Erica, I'm sorry. I'm sorry if I did anything or said anything to upset you.
[Thunder]
Erica: Oh, no. No. It's me. I should apologize to you. Please, I'm so sorry. I -- I did not mean to bark at you like that.
Kendall: It's ok, it's all right. I guess we're -- we're all a little on edge.
Erica: It's the storm.
Kendall: Brings you back to that night at your father's --
Erica: But I'm not going to be a victim. I refuse to be a victim.
Kendall: It's ok, it's ok. Erica, it's ok to be afraid. You're not alone. Let me help you the way I did last time.
Erica: Kendall, I can't fall apart every time a cloud rumbles. I have got to stay strong, I've got to stay strong for Bianca. I have to focus on what she needs. I have to find out if Michael Cambias -- if Michael Cambias hurt her.
Kendall: The way he hurt you and me.
Erica: She's always been so naive, she's been so trusting.
Kendall: Honestly, I think that she's a lot stronger than you give her credit for.
Erica: You don't know her like I do.
Kendall: Look, why don't we both go and talk to Bianca together?
Erica: No, no, no, no. I don't think that would be a good idea. In fact, I know she wouldn't open up in front of you. No, I have to do it alone.
Kendall: Are you sure?
Erica: Positive.
Kendall: Ok. Ok, well, I'll go, then.
Erica: Oh, Kendall, you do understand?
Kendall: Of course. Of course. I understand perfectly.
Erica: Thank you.
Kendall: Just call me if you need me.
Erica: All right.
Kendall: Ok.
Erica: Thank you.
Kendall: Bye.
Erica: Bye.
Kendall: You're not getting away with this, Michael.

***** (clip c) [Bianca starts flashbacking to the rape with Erica (no Lena)]

[amc030812c starts]
Erica: Whoa, Bianca! Honey, what is it? What's wrong? Sweetheart?
Bianca: I just wanted to make sure that you had remembered to lock the front door.
[Thunder]
Erica: It's the storm, honey -- it's made you jumpy, like me. But it's all right. There's really nothing -- nothing for you to be afraid of.
Bianca: Let go!
Michael: Listen, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Bianca: Just let go of me.
Michael: No problem. Bianca, there's no need to be frightened. It's just me, all right? It's ok.
Erica: Bianca, sweetheart? Are you all right?
[Thunder]
Erica: Bianca? Bianca?

***** (clip d) [Kendall confronts Michael (no Lena)]

Michael: No, no, I don't wish to be connected. I just was hoping you could update me on my father's condition. Stabilized? Yeah, yeah, that is a relief. No, no, no, I don't wish to leave a message. D*** you, old man, you just never know when to let go, do you?
[amc030812d-inc starts]
[Knock on door]
Michael: Hello, Kendall. I've been expecting you.
Kendall: What in the h*** did you do to my sister?

***** (clip e) [Bianca freaks out while with Erica (Lena mention)]

[amc030812e starts]
Erica: Bianca -- sweetheart, it's all right. It's all right, you're safe with me, honey. It's just the two of us here.
[Bianca flashbacks with Michael]
Bianca: There's people upstairs -- Henry and Boyd --
Michael: Bianca, there's nobody upstairs. I did check the house before you got home, ok? There's no need to lie. You and I are going to be together for a while.
Bianca: No. Don't touch me! Oh!
Michael: You must think I'm really crazy.
Bianca: No, no, not crazy -- in pain.
Michael: Well, let me tell you something -- I don't need a shrink. I mean, I come here for your help and that's your advice -- to see some stupid quack?
Erica: Bianca -- Bianca, honey, it's all right. It's all right. It's just a spilled glass of water, that's all. Honey, look at me. Look, you just -- you just take a deep breath. Just take a deep breath, and just you try to relax, honey, just try to relax.
Michael: Hey, you just close your eyes and use your imagination -- you could even pretend I'm Lena.
Bianca: Get away from me. You're not her. You'll never be her.
Erica: Oh, Bianca, it's me, honey. It's -- it's mommy.
Bianca: I'm not going to let you do this to me again. I won't drink your d**** lemonade. I won't dance with you. I won't let you inside me.
Erica: Honey -- sweetheart. Honey. Come back to me, honey. Come back to me, baby. It's mommy. It's mommy, sweetheart. You're home, honey. You're home. You're safe.
Bianca: Out!
Michael: I -- wait a minute.
[Bianca screams]
Bianca: No!
Erica: No, Bianca, no! No, honey!

***** (clip f) [Erica tries to comfort Bianca (no Lena)]

[amc030812f starts]
Erica: Look at me, sweetheart. I want you to see me, honey. Look at me, baby. I want you to focus and really see me, honey. It's mommy. It's mommy. I would never hurt you, and you know that, honey. You know I would never hurt you, and I won't let anybody else hurt you. I swear I am here to protect you, honey. I am going to protect you. I'm going to take care of you, and I'm going to make sure that nobody else ever hurts you again. Please believe me, sweetheart. Please believe me and please look at me.
[Thunder]
Erica: Yeah. That's right. That's right, my baby. That's right, my baby. Everything's all right now, honey. Everything is going to be all right. Mommy's here.
Bianca: Mommy?
Erica: Yes. Yes -- yes. Oh, you're going to be ok, honey. Everything is going to be all right, honey. I promise you. You are not alone, honey. You're going to get through this. I swear to you, I promise you, we are going to get through this together, honey.

***** (clip g) [Michael reminds Kendall that Erica is with Bianca not her (no Lena)]

[amc030812g starts]
Michael: Kendall, this night just keeps getting better and better.
Kendall: Answer me. Tell me what you did to my sister.
Michael: Well, if you really thought that I did something, I highly doubt that you'd risk being alone with me now here, would you?
Kendall: You're such a sick little man.
Michael: And yet here you are. I mean, this is amazing. You and Erica -- you just keep coming back for more. I mean, you two can accuse me of romancing every woman in town, but --
Kendall: Oh, only you could confuse rape with romance.
Michael: As I was saying, Kendall, you are never, never going to pin a rape charge on me. As a matter of fact, you're never going to pin anything on me. Finest import rolled by a native woman.
Kendall: Now tell me -- tell me what you did to my sister, or I'll --
Michael: What? What are you going to do, Kendall, hmm? Huh? You going to stamp your feet, call me names? Is there anything sadder than a blown opportunity? And you could've had so much more with me, Kendall. I would've given you my all, everything I had to give, if only you'd stuck by me.
Kendall: I'd rather die.
Michael: Well, that's because you fail to see the big picture. Now, I would've handed you the world gift-wrapped, but you chose what was behind door number two. You turned your back on me to win your mommy's love, and let me ask you something, Kendall. Where is mommy dearest now, hmm? I mean, if I know my irony, she's probably hanging out with Bianca, isn't she? That's what I thought. Yep. D***, I am good.
Kendall: You are beyond pathetic.
Michael: Oh, Kendall, "pathetic" is for little children that don't learn their lesson.
Kendall: Oh, yeah, like you've learned any lessons.
Michael: Well, when the lesson is, you know, betrayal by a parent, one learns to have the last laugh. And I, my dear, shall have the last laugh, as my father is dying.
Kendall: Again?
Michael: Yeah, well, for real this time. And when he goes -- which won't be a moment too soon -- I will be the head of Cambias industries. Which, of course, you would've shared in the wealth in that -- you know, the power, the glory. And another thing -- I will make those bogus charges that Montgomery brought against me disappear one by one, and then I will have my freedom. Hmm. I knew dear old dad would come through for me in the end.

***** (clip h) [Michael tells Kendall she will regret leaving him (no Lena)]

[amc030814h starts]
Michael: Well, he's had a good run, hasn't he? Besides, I think it's time that he hands over the reins to Cambias industries to somebody that is more vital and capable.
Kendall: You are completely deluded if you think inheriting his fortune will change anything. A king's ransom won't buy you freedom, not after everything you've done. And if I find out that you have laid one finger on Bianca, I swear to god --
Michael: What are you going to do, Kendall, huh? What do you have in store for me? What can I hope for? What, you going to poison my cigars? Put battery acid in my after-shave lotion? Hmm?
Kendall: Whatever hurts the most.
Michael: Yeah, yeah, you talk tough. But you know as well as I do, Kendall, that you can't touch me. As a matter of fact, no one can. And you, your mother, your sister -- you mean nothing to me. And one day -- one day soon -- you will look back on all the things that we shared together, and you're going to wish that you had it back. You will lie in bed at night, dreaming, burning with desire, remembering all the things I used to do to you, and how I made you breathless.
[Kendall spits on Michael]

***** (clip i) [Bianca continues having flashbacks to the rape (no Lena)]

[amc030812i starts
Erica: I'm here, sweetheart. Mommy's here. You can talk to me.
Bianca: He came back. He's here. He wants to get us. He wants to hurt us so bad.
Erica: Honey, the door's locked. There are guards outside. No one's going to hurt us. No one can get to us.
Bianca: He's going to try. He'll never give up.
Erica: Oh, sweetheart, no. No, he's never going to hurt you. No one can hurt you, honey. I'm not going to let them.
Bianca: I'm going to fight harder this time. I'm going to be smarter than he is. Last time, I wasn't strong enough, and he held me down. And --
Michael: Here --
Bianca: No. Please, please.
Michael: Shut up! Shut up!
Bianca: No! No! No!
[Thunder]
Bianca: No! No.

***** (clip j) [Kendall accuses Michael of raping Bianca (no Lena)]

[amc030812j starts]
Kendall: Let me go, you pig. Let me go! Let me go before --
Michael: What's the matter, Kendall, huh? Afraid I'm going to pounce on you?
Kendall: Let me go!
Michael: Have my way with you, huh? In your dreams. Get out.
Kendall: You're sick! Michael, you're sick! You admit it! Admit that you raped my sister, Michael! Admit it!

***** (clip k) [Bianca tells Erica that Michael raped her (no Lena)]

[amc030812k starts]
Erica: It's all right, sweetheart. I promise you it's going to be all right, honey. Could you just tell me, who -- who hurt you, honey? Who did this to you?
Bianca: Michael. It was Michael. And he won't leave me alone.
Erica: And what did he do to you, sweetheart? Honey, did Michael -- did he -- did he rape you? It's ok, sweetheart. It's all right, honey. You can tell me. You can tell me, baby. Please. Please.
Bianca: Yes. Yes. He raped me.
Erica: Oh, god. It's ok, sweetie. Ok. Ok.
