SYNOPSIS

Lena sends Bianca a plane ticket voucher and Bianca decides to visit Lena in Poland; however while making the reservation Bianca changes her mind and discusses with Maggie why she doesn't want to go. Deep psychological stuff here, I guess.

Lena invites Bianca to spend the summer with her in Poland. Bianca admits to Maggie that there is something keeping her from leaving Pine Valley but she doesn't know what it is.

Back at Maggie's, Bianca wonders how much more does Babe have to go through? Her baby is kidnapped for a second time! They agree they're glad it's over, and Maggie gives Bianca an envelope that arrived for her from a travel agency. Bianca opens it and exclaims, "Oh my goodness!" Maggie asks if it's fan mail, and Bianca tells her it's air mail-a travel voucher for a flight to Poland, "Lena wants me to come be with her!" She calls Lena and agrees this was much more romantic than a phone call, and she misses her, too. Maggie busies herself in the kitchen as Bianca says she'd love to see Lena, and will call her after she's made the reservations, promising it will be soon. She hangs up, and Maggie calls it sweet-she misses her! Bianca agrees she does, but her mother is starting a new treatment and she can't get away to visit here. Maggie encourages Bianca to accept Lena's suggestion to spend the summer with her in Poland, and says there's no reason for her to stay here-her mom's in rehab! Bianca agrees and adds Kendall is in one of her untouchable phases where she couldn't help her if she tried. Maggie asks, "Why stay here? You have no commitments." Bianca agrees the cosmetics industry can do without her, and she is absolutely free to do as she pleases! Bianca makes the call to the travel agent, but hangs up before booking a flight. Puzzled at her own hesitation, she says she can't do it! She loves Lena, so why can't she leave Pine Valley? It's not Kendall or her mother, and they say home is where the heart is, so she should be able to board that flight. Maggie hopefully suggests maybe more of her heart is here with the people she loves, or maybe with someone in particular. Bianca says something that just keeps nagging at her, like somebody wants her to stay in Pine Valley. Maggie asks if it's Bess? Bianca replies that Bess is Babe and JR's baby-she knows that now. Maggie says it's okay if that's the reason-she's not going to judge her! Bianca sighs it's not okay. Lena gave her a ring, and now she can't even fly to visit her? What is she going to say to her? Before Maggie can answer, Jamie breathlessly bursts through the door. Maggie asks what's wrong, and he says it's Babe and Bess, "You guys gotta help me save them!"

ALL GAY RE-CAP

This all gay recap is by C.K..

TODAY ON ALL MY TANGERINE CHILDREN:

  • A wee bit of a recap.

The Set-Up Ė Everything is as I left it two weeks ago: Kendall canít let go of Ryan and has morphed into the kind of woman that should be eradicated from earth; The Punisher has obviously overdosed on shaved ice and vomited it all on Maggie; David is leaving offers at the Altar of Biology and forgetting Bianca is as much a daughter to him as Babe and Babe - Babe is still a clueless moron.


The Crashing Pad Ė Maggie, you match the cushions on the couch! Was there a fabric surplus?

Maggie picks up an envelope from the floor and tells Bianca itís a letter for her from "B&M Travel." B&M? Really? Could you be any less subtle?

Bianca: "Itís a voucher for a flight to Poland. Lena wants me to come be with her."

Poor Lena: all her good taste landed on clothes. Women? Not so much.

While Maggie is behind the counter fighting with a tea bag, Bianca is on the phone with Lena.

Bianca: "You know, you could have just called me. Yes, I know: this was much more romantic."

You guys are still so geeky: Iím almost astonished Lena didnít send a folder with an itinerary and scheduled coffee breaks along with the voucher.

Bianca: "I miss you, too, and I would love to see Poland. Forget Poland: Iíd love to see you. Ok, Iíll call you as soon as I make all the reservations. Soon. Yes, yes: I promise. Soon. Me, too."

Thank god itís over: I was dreading a flirty convo and we all know how badly those two do flirty. I still have nightmares about HairClip!Lena and the Barstool of Idiotic Flirting at SOS.

Back from behind the counter, Maggie rejoins Bianca and praises Lenaís "sweet" gesture.

Bianca: "She does miss me, but her mother is starting a new treatment."
Maggie: "But thatís good news, right?"


Maggie, are you sure youíre Pre-Med and not, say, going to Clown University?

Bianca: "It means that she canít get away to visit me."

Yes, Princess: everyone must be at your beck and call at all times. Who cares if your lover is tending to her ailing mother? Of course! Why would you want to get on a plane? Some people are just so demanding. Pfft.

Maggie reminds Bianca that sheís never seen Poland, needs the break and should consider going.

Bianca: "Sheís hoping for a little bit more than a break like, maybe, the rest of the summer."

Oh, no! Summer in Europe: how horribly dreadful.

Maggie: "No reason for you to stay here: your mom is in rehab."
Bianca: "True. And Kendall is in one of her untouchable phases: couldnít help her if I tried."


Well, touch her differently then. Oh, wait.

Maggie walks into the living room with a suitcase and wonders whether the in-flight movie will be dubbed in Polish; Bianca just stares at the phone and says she hung up before confirming the flight.

Bianca: "I canít do it. I love Lena, so why canít I leave Pine Valley?"
Maggie: "BJís has the best pancakes."


Oh, youíre still there? I thought you were the cushion.

Bianca: "They say the home is where the heart is so, if thatís true, I should be able to board that flight."
Maggie: "Or maybe a little bit more of your heart is here with people that you love. Or maybe itís with someone in particular."


Aww, Maggie: youíre so big-eyed and so hopeful and Bianca is so clueless and thoughtful and cut toÖBabe! Bwah! AMC: such the little mindfuck.

Bianca says she feels that "someone is holding [her] back;" Maggie wonders whether it might be Bess and Bianca, though she insists sheís aware Bess belongs to Babe and J.R., argues that itís not ok to want to stay in Pine Valley for that reason alone.

Bianca: "Lena gave me a ring and now I canít even fly to visit her? What am I going to say to her?"

[BAM filter] You donít want to go because you donít really love Lena and never have; she was just a substitute because you couldnít have Maggie and now Maggie is the one who is holding you back: deep inside, you know sheís your One True Love and you canít wait to hold her hand and share your cotton candy. [/BAM filter] Whatever, BAM freaks.

Oh, why waste time telling your de-facto fiancée that youíre a fucking tool when Jamie is giving you a perfect excuse not to leave town? Babe and Bess need help! And only you can save them! You! And the Magic Rack! Of Doom!

AMC: the sucking continues.



COMMENTARIES

From Mystic
Aw, I liked Lianca's little phone convo. It had that geeked out air about it that I always loved. Good to know, Lianca are still nerds. Pretty, pretty nerds.

From luv2surf
"B & M Travel" Oh, so that's 'BAM' Travel, eh? Ouch, Burn! Since I know TIIC are not actually going to follow through with this pair, dangling that to the BAMmers is so cruel, I actually feel sorry for them.

From regis
I always smirk a little when envelopes on TV are never sealed. I smirk even more when they are so blatantly unsealed like Bianca's was today. Liz could have held it differently to at least not make it so obvious. Concentrating too hard on remembering her lines I guess.



PARODY

On strike until the show gets better.

Bianca: I know. You're right. It's over. What's that? Fan mail?
Maggie: No, it's for you -- b&m travel.
Bianca: Oh, my goodness.
Maggie: So it is fan mail?
Bianca: No. Air mail, actually. It's a voucher for a flight to poland. Lena wants me to come be with her.

Bianca: You know, you could have just called me. Yes, i know. This was much more romantic. I miss you, too. And I would love to see poland. No, forget poland. I'd love to see you. Ok, I'll call you as soon as i make all the reservations. Soon. Yes, yes, I promise, soon. Me, too.
Maggie: How sweet is that. It's because she misses you.
Bianca: Yeah, well, she does miss me, but her mother is starting a new treatment.
Maggie: But that's good news. Right?
Bianca: Oh, yeah, it is, except it means that she can't get away to visit me.
Maggie: Well, she's seen pine valley. I mean, you've never seen poland. You could use a break.
Bianca: Yeah. She's hoping for a little bit more than a break, like maybe the rest of the summer.
Maggie: Very cool! Very cool -- european summer.
Bianca: Yeah. It could be amazing.
Maggie: It could be unreal. I mean, no reason for you to stay here. Your mom's in rehab.
Bianca: That's true. And kendall is in one of her untouchable phases. Couldn't help her if i tried.
Maggie: Call. Check the flights. I mean, come on. Why stay here? You don't have a lease. You're not in summer school. You have no commitments.
Bianca: This is true. The cosmetics industry will survive without me. I am absolutely free to do as i please.

Clip C

Maggie: So, did you score a flight or what? Hey, you know, i wonder if the movie will be dubbed in polish. That would be really funny. What's wrong?

Maggie: Ok, so you'll book a flight for the following day.
Bianca: No, or -- or maybe i won't.
Maggie: Why?
Bianca: I can't do it. I love lena. So why can't i leave pine valley?
Maggie: B.J.'S has the best pancakes.
Bianca: It's not kendall. It's not my mother.
Maggie: This is your home.
Bianca: They say that home is where the heart is. So if that's true, i should be able to board that flight.
Maggie: Or maybe a little bit more of your heart is here with the people that you love. Or maybe it's with someone in particular.
