Jack and Bianca discuss the risks of falling in love. Jack is supportive of Bianca when she tells him about her growing relationship with Lena. Bianca won't listen when Erica tries to warn her about Lena's hidden agenda. Bianca makes it clear to Erica that she wants Lena to be a part of her life. Erica beseeches Kendall to try and get Bianca to see the truth about Lena. Kendall warns Erica that Bianca might already be in love with Lena.

Kendall’s smile fades when Lena comes into the waiting area...

He comments that it may be the drugs, but she looks different, “Do I know her?” Bianca says not really, but he will, “Because I think she’s the one I’ve been looking for.”

Lena asks if there’s been a change [in Jack's sondition], and Kendall tells her Jackson woke up; it appears he’ll be okay. Lena says she’s glad for everyone who’s close to him. When Kendall agrees he’s a very important part of this family, Lena notes, “Yes, but you’re not, are you Kendall?” ...

Jack asks Bianca to tell him about her new lady love; she laughs as she asks if he’s sure he’s up for that, because she could go on for paragraphs! She adds that it looks like Jack and her mom are back together; Jack nods and says her mother’s scared. Bianca agrees that it’s scary, “I can understand that. I mean, that's the story of my life. Afraid to give my heart away. Afraid not to.” Jack says she’s just like her old man, and Bianca smiles as she says she’d like to think she is, and like Jack—they’re the greatest guys she’s ever known. When Jack says there’s nothing wrong with loving somebody with all your heart, Bianca sighs that it’s such a risk. “What's the use of living if you're not going to take that risk?” Jack asks...

Myrtle tells Bianca she saw her friend Lena a little while ago, and asks if they’ve come to an understanding? Erica cuts her off, saying that they are so strict about the visiting hours in the ICU, so if she wants to see Jack, she should hurry. She leaves, and Erica sighs as she tells Bianca she needs to talk to her. Bianca notes that’s always a prelude to something unpleasant... Erica asks her to hear her out, saying she had no idea that she and Lena had become so close that she would confide this to her Uncle Jack. When Bianca points out that her uncle is happy for them, Erica says the thing is that Uncle Jack doesn't know all the details. Bianca knows she would never do anything to hurt her, but it is much harder watching somebody else hurt her, and that's exactly what she believes Lena is going to do to her. Bianca disgustedly asks, “Mother, why? Why when you see me happy do you always have to try to take it away from me?” Erica says she learned something disturbing about Lena just before she learned Jack was shot, and it gives her no joy to be the messenger in this. Bianca says she’s a grown woman who has found somebody to care about, but Erica says it’s the wrong somebody. Bianca insists it will always be the wrong somebody because she’s really not okay with having a daughter who's a lesbian in a gay relationship. Bianca firmly says she is with Lena now; her Uncle Jack said she should never close her heart to love, “And you don't know what I would give to hear you say the same words to me and to know that you really meant them.” Kendall comes over to Erica when Bianca leaves, noting she told Bianca about Lena. Erica tried, but she wouldn’t listen; she thinks Bianca might listen to her, and asks Kendall if she can find it in her heart to help her sister? Kendall reminds her that she and Binks aren’t exactly soul sisters. Erica insists she might listen because Kendall’s not family, and she doesn’t have a personal grudge against Lena. “Except that she cheated with my two-timing boyfriend,” Ms. Hart reminds her, but Erica tells her to use that or whatever she has to to open Bianca’s eyes to this woman's treachery. Kendall agrees to do what she can, but at this point she’s not sure anything she says will change Bianca’s feelings. Erica asks if she thinks it’s gone too far, “Do you think that Bianca’s in love with Lena?”

Bianca talks about how good Jack looked as they go back to Lena’s room. She picks up the key that Lena drops and holds it out to her; Lena asks if she wants to come in? When Bianca hesitates, Lena takes the key and suggests that maybe it's not such a good time. Bianca wants to come in, and to stay, “I want to know what it feels like to be with somebody and never want to leave.” They smile as they go inside.

Previously on All My Children
Greenlee found out that Carlos didn't write the emails.
Tad vowed to help Liza get to the bottom of Fusion's lawsuit.
*sshat confirmed to Kendall that Lena was on Mission Bed Bianca.
Erica and Jack did something. Oh, right, he regained consciousness. Hopefully to tell Erica to quit nattering and leave him alone...

Kendall desperately begs Bianca to listen but they're interrupted by Joe. Jack's awake and is asking for Bianca. To stuff a sock in her mother's mouth, no doubt...

Kendall chats with Joe about Jack's condition and his expected progress. Joe kindly tells her that he won't forget what she did for Erica today, and neither will Erica herself. As he leaves, Lena shows up and she and Kendall have a disgusted glare-off...

Tad and Boyd fill Liza in on the truth behind the lawsuits, which is really just the story Lena fed them. Smoan has a big idea (that we don't get to hear) to get people noticing Fusion again. She also promises that for once, her ideas won't land anyone in jail. Heh...

Bianca assures Jack that Lily knows he's hurt and will come to see him soon. He's a little more interested in the glow of luuuuurve coming from Bianca, though. She shares that she feels like she's finally found the one she's always been looking for. Aw.

Lena and Kendall trade insults, but Lena's snipe that Kendall isn't part of the Kane family obviously hits home. Kendall has no time for a comeback as Myrtle rushes onto the scene...

Jack tells Binks she's just like her dad, which is at least better than hearing she's like Erica, I suppose. He encourages her to take the risk of loving someone completely...

Bianca interrupts another conversation and the little alarm bells in Erica's head ding when she hears Lena's name. She sends Myrtle to visit Jack so she can try to warn her baby girl about big bad Lena, but to no avail. Bianca can't understand why her mother won't ever let her be happy.

Bianca refuses to believe anything Erica pushes on her about Lena. She accuses Erica of still being scared of who her daughter is and walks away. Kendall approaches and Erica gets the brilliant idea of Kendall stepping in.

Bianca and Lena are now together and outside the door to Lena's room. Wow. Bianca just walked away from her mother. At the hospital. Kari pointed out a timing glitch on Thursday with Lena that I missed, but I think this might be worse. Lena invites her in.

Kendall's skeptical of Erica's plan, and Erica reasons that she can do a better job "because you're not family." Way to stick your foot in it, Erica. Kendall looks hurt, but finally promises to try her best. I'm not sure how Erica didn't already grasp this, but it's news to her that Bianca's fallen in love with Lena.

Bianca is eager to stay at Lena's. Holy s***, is Bianca actually going to get laid? Lena lets her inside. Oh, come on, it's Sweeps, can't we at least see them make out? I feel cheated...





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:

  • Van Gogh has a cameo.
  • Boyd flirts with the competition.
  • Bianca is a gay lesbian homosexual.
  • Do we want to go in?

At The Hospital - FormerlyComatoseJack's other ear has fallen off. Poor Erica: Jack will be her Van Gogh.

Kendall is again telling Bianca she really needs to speak with her. It won't be bad Bianca: Kendall only wants to break your heart. Go with her. Go. But, no. A Doc arrives and tells her Uncle Jack wants to see her. Bianca takes off.

LENA!!!!!!!!!! Hee. Lena has arrived at the hospital with the take-out. Bad look between Kendall and Lena. Lena burns her hand on the hot cup of - what? Coffee? Come here Lena, I'll fix it for you.


Fusion - BoydTheChemist is hanging with the competition. I dunno what's happening 'cause, well, it's boring and I don't care. You know, when you fast forward, there are lines across the screen that make everyone on AMC look like Dorothy's Munchkins. Too bad they don't do the dance, too. I try to, but I just look spastic.

Greenlee is fighting with a guy about e-mail. Oh, if I had a dime for every fight caused by an e-mail: I could finally put together that roll of dimes I have been carrying around for months.

BoydTheChemist has figured Fusion - Erica's competition - was never the target of the lawsuit: Erica's company, Enchantment, was. They suspect B******Michael is behind it all.


Elsewhere - Greenlee and the E-MailGuy are still fighting.

E-MailGuy: "Like you would have understood anything if I had written it all in Spanish."

I have my doubts about her comprehension of the English language, too.

Greenlee: "You could have spoken with your eyes."


Do people get paid to write this crap? Plus, Greenlee's eyes are shifty, as if she were trying to decide whether she's cross-eyed or not. Into which of his eyes would she be looking into then? And would the message get through with just one eye? Maybe it would be like a bad cell connection. "Can you read me now?"


At The Hospital - Bianca is now in the room with Jack. He notices Bianca looks different. "Maybe it's the drugs," he wonders. Well, if it were drugs, would you not be seeing more than one of her? And would not all the Biancas you see be in all kinds of rainbow colors? Or is that when you're drunk?

Bianca: "Different? Different good?"
Jack: "Yeah. Do I know her?"

Aww...FormerlyComatoseJack is one perceptive dude.

Bianca: "Not really, but you will because - because I think she is the one I have been looking for."

Oh Bianca. I like Lena, I do! But she is so going to break your heart.

Unless. Unless those moronic AMC writers get a clue and get Lena to tell you before it's too late. Shame AMC, shame! How much more does this girl have to suffer?

Lena, because she is European and, therefore, classy and better than Kendall, decides to chat with her after having burned a hole with her eyes in Kendall's back. See? Classy.

Lena: "So, Mr. Montgomery, is there any change?"

See? SEE? It is The Incestuous Lesbian Circle! If Jack's last name is Montgomery, and Bianca calls him "Uncle Jack," then does it not mean he is Erica's (dead?) husband's brother?

Anyway, Kendall tells Erica Jackson woke up.

Lena: "I'm glad for everyone who is close to him."
Kendall: "Well, Jackson is a very important part of this family."


Oh, I know where this is going. Feh.

Lena: "Yes, but...you're not, are you Kendall?"

See? I knew it! Score one for Lena.

Now, this is interesting. Myrtle has arrived at the hospital, she sees both Kendall and Lena, but she makes a beeline for Lena and asks her about Jack. Kendall jumps in: it must be that I-want-to-be-part-of-the-family thing. Myrtle again addressees Lena.

Myrtle: "Darling, are you here for Bianca?"

I like Myrtle! And I call my girlfriend 'darling,' too. Isn't it nice?

The mystery of the take-out is finally revealed: Lena tells Myrtle she brought it for Erica and Bianca and leaves. Kendall is shooting daggers with her eyes, but they fall to the ground before they reach Lena's back. Why? Because Kendall has sunken-in eyes and the daggers take a while to get out.

Back in his room, Jack and Bianca are having a heart-to-heart about love and its dangers.

Jack: "Tell me about your new lady love."
Bianca: "Are you sure? Because I could go on for paragraphs."


What, that's it? Paragraphs? Why, that's not even a whole page!

Jack speculates that perhaps it is Erica who might not want to hear about it. Bianca retorts that she thinks her mom and Jack might be back together. Jack says Erica is scared.

Bianca: "Of course she is: it's scary, I can understand that. I mean, that's the story of my life: afraid to give my heart away, afraid not to."

Jack thinks Bianca is an awful lot like her father is. Or, was. 'Cause, he's dead, right?

Jack: "You know Bianca, there is nothing wrong with loving someone with all your heart."
Bianca: "But it's such a risk."
Jack: "What's the point of living if you're not going to take that risk?"


Yeah, I'm not going to make fun of this exchange.

Erica is outside with Myrtle.

Erica: "Somehow Jack cheating death made me see that I had been cheating life. And him. And myself."

Erica, I can only hope life will not take your cheating kindly and will flog you with leeks. Also, maybe it could fix your hair. 'Cause, well, it's bigger than your whole face and your head combined, Erica.

Bianca arrives and interrupts. When Myrtle leaves to go see Jack, Erica tells Bianca she needs to talk with her. Bianca cringes. Yeah, no good thought has ever come after the I-have-to-talk-with-you line.

Bianca: "That's always the prelude to something unpleasant."

Bianca knows the word prelude! I like her more now.

Yes, Erica has finally decided to tell Bianca what she now knows about Lena. Remember the whole B******Michael plan for Lena to get into Bianca's pants in order to steal the formula thing? Yes, that. So, if you wanted to warn your daughter, or anyone else you love, about someone who may be taking advantage of your feelings, how would you do it? Yeah, I'm guessing not the way Erica is about to.

Erica preambles by saying that, no matter what life throws at them (it's leeks, Erica!), they will stick it out together. Yeah, ok. Bianca is growing impatient.

Bianca: "Is this going somewhere?"
Erica: "I had no idea that you and Lena had become so close, that you would confide this to your Uncle Jack."
Bianca: "Yeah, and he is happy for us."
Erica: "Bianca, you know I would never hurt you, I mean that's the last thing in the world I would do. But, believe me, it is much harder watching somebody else hurt you. And that's exactly what I believe Lena is going to do to you."


Well. Bianca looks irate. If she were an Alpaca, she's be spitting green right now.

Bianca: "Mother, why? Why when you see me happy do you always have to try to take that away from me?"

Bianca walks away, Erica seems lost.

You know Erica, had you not had a Drama Queen freak-out when Bianca came out and then paid a girl to leave town, Bianca might be listening to you right now. And I say that with all the certainty of one who never saw that happen.

Again with the people I don't know.

Erica is trying to talk with Bianca again; she tells her the world can be a hurtful place. Erica, really, Bianca knows. She came out as a teen, what do you think?

Erica says that, before finding out Jack had been shot, she found out something disturbing about Lena and that it brings her no joy to be the messenger. Except that Susan Lucci had a blooper here. She says: "It brings me no joy to be the plea...messenger in this." So, no retakes in Soaps then.

Bianca doesn't want to hear it and tells her mother nothing she can possibly say will change her mind about how she feels for Lena. Yeah, I'm thinking Bianca is a goner at this point. Not that I blame her.

Bianca: "You can tell me that she's too old, she's too sophisticated or too foreign or too sexy or..."

Wait a minute, you think your mother would try to get you away from Lena, or any other woman for that matter, by telling you: "no honey, that woman is too sexy. You must look for a plain Jane, possibly one wearing a potato sack and a colander for a hat." Yes. That is exactly how that conversation would go.

Bianca: "Mom, this is me, your daughter, a grown woman, who has found somebody to care about."
Erica: "The wrong somebody."
Bianca: "Oh mom, it will always be the wrong somebody. It will always be because even though you're so adamant about the fact that you're ok with having a daughter who is a lesbian who's in a gay relationship, you're really not ok with it at all."


Erica protests that this is not why she thinks Lena is bad news, but I think even she knows it's not going to fly.

Bianca: "Uncle Jack said I should never close my heart to love. You don't know what I would give to hear you say those same words to me and to know that you really meant them."

Bianca leaves, Kendall enters and goes to Erica.

Kendall assumes Erica has told Bianca about Lena, but Erica retorts that Bianca would not listen to her. She asks Kendall for her help, but Kendall would rather go to the dentist for a root canal.

Erica: "Could you find it in your heart to help your sister?"

Sorry, but--what? Hadn't Kendall already asked Bianca if she could speak with her in private? So, what is this hesitation crap? I'm telling you, those sunken-in eyes damage your brain.


Pine Valley Inn - Bianca and Lena are at Lena’s door. Lena loses her grip on the keys, they fall to the ground and Bianca picks them up.

Lena: "Do you wanna come in?"

Oh, the look on Bianca's face: I think she actually paled. And we all know what that means. Bianca has been making all sorts of decisions today. This is a good decision Bianca: even though Lena has been a traitorous tramp, she does care about you.


At The Hospital - Erica wants Kendall to use whatever means necessary to open Bianca's eyes to Lena's deceptions, including Kendall's knowledge of the fact that Lena has slept with B******Michael.

Kendall hesitates: she doesn't think anything she will say to Bianca will change her feelings for Lena. Yeah, good pick-up there, Kendall.

Erica: "What makes you think that? Do you think that it's gone to far? Do you think that Bianca is in love with Lena?"

You know, for having had so much trouble with this, Erica doesn't stumble or look fazed as she wonders about this.

Kendall just looks at her. Erica seems hurt, not for herself, but for Bianca. She mutters an "Oh," the kind that means "oh f***, my daughter is going to be in so much pain and I can't do anything about that." I like PFLAG Erica.


Pine Valley Inn - Lena reaches for the keys in Bianca's hands.

Lena: "Maybe it's not such a good time, with your uncle and..."
Bianca: " No! No, I want to come in. I wanna stay. I wanna know what it feels like to be with somebody and never want to leave."

Uhm...does this mean...uh... Go Bianca! And look how happy you've made Lena. I'm happy, too. And, yeah, now I can stop hiding. Hee. I clamor for these scenes, but then I get shy. But not so shy that I won't watch them a few times. It's good training for my shyness. Yes, that's it.

Oh yeah, Erica has accepted Jack's marriage proposal.


TOMORROW ON AMC: A whole lot of crap which involves a lot of people I have never seen. A day off from recaps, perhaps.





PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

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

Carlos and Greenlee's date ended badly.
Carlos: I'm not the one who wrote the e-mail.
Greenlee: Yesssss! I knew it! They couldn't possibly mean for you to be my love interest. Now tell me who wrote them and I'll go find the person I'm meant to have a storyline with.
Carlos: That's not what I meant. I had someone write them for me. They were my thoughts but I just don't know how to put them into words. I'm still your love interest.
Greenlee: I hate my life.

Liza and Simone were working at Fusion even though everywhere else in town it seems to be the middle of the night.
Liza: No one wants to handle our products.
Simone: I think word got out about the lipstick in the kitchen episode. The Fusion storyline hasn't gone over quite as well as they had hoped.
Tad: Boyd and I solved your problem. The lawsuit has been dropped.
Liza: What did you do?
Boyd: We threatened to send Henry over to play his guitar until she gave up on the lawsuit.
Tad: She crumbled within seconds.
Simone: Hey, I have an idea. Let's go make a commercial. I'll call Carlos.
Boyd: Why?
Simone: I want someone in the scene that's a worse actor than me.

Later Tad, Boyd, Simone, and Carlos went over to WRCW.
Boyd: I can't believe I'm watching the competition film a commercial.
Tad: I can't believe I've been reduced to doing scenes like this just to get screen time.
Simone: Look everyone. Carlos is on TV.
Tad: That should kill WRCW's ratings. I know it's not helping ours.
Carlos: Look into my eyes. You are getting sleepy.

The vigil at the hospital continued.
Erica: Oh Jack, I was so scared. I've never felt pain like this before.
Jack: :::groan::::I'm the one that got shot. :::gasp::::
Erica: I know. It was awful for me. I hope you don't get shot again. I don't think I could go through this again.
Bianca: I'm so glad you're feeling better Uncle Jack.
Jack: :::groan::: You look happy.:::gasp::::
Bianca: I am. I've finally got a girlfriend.
Jack: ::::groan:::: Great::::gasp::::And you didn't even have to get shot to get the girl::::groan::::

Erica tried to talk to Bianca about Lena.
Erica: I don't think she's right for you.
Bianca: You just can't handle the fact that I'm in love with a woman.
Erica: Actually that isn't it this time. I found out something about Lena.
Bianca: Like what? I suppose you're going to say that she's an industrial spy or that she's been sleeping with my sister's boyfriend or some silly thing like that. Just how gullible do you think I am?
Erica: Kendall, maybe you can talk to Bianca. She might listen to you.
Kendall: I'd like to help you if I can.
Erica: Wonderful. It will be better coming from you since you're not a part of the family.
Kendall: :::sigh::::
Sam: I know just how you feel Kendall. You want to come visit me in the attic sometime?

Bianca went back to Lena's hotel room which seems to be on the top floor of the hospital considering that it took them 3 seconds to get there.
Lena: I know you're upset about your uncle. Would you like to come in?
Bianca: I'd love to. Comfort sex is a family tradition.

Erica went back to see Jack.
Jack: Will you marry me?
Erica: I think we should just be friends.
Heart monitor: beeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppp
Erica: I was kidding! Yes, I'll marry you.
Jack: Good. I'd hate to come back from the dead for nothing.
Maria: I know how you feel. Trust me, it's not fun.



QUOTES

Jack: You know, maybe it's the drugs, but you sure look different.
Bianca: Different, good?
Jack: Yeah. Do I know her?
Bianca: Oh. Not really, but you will because I think she's the one I've been looking for.

Kendall: Jackson is a very important part of this family.
Lena: Yes, but you're not, are you, Kendall?

Jack: Well, tell me about your new ladylove.
Bianca: Are you sure you're up for that? Because I could go on for paragraphs.

Jack: You know, Bianca, there's nothing wrong with loving somebody with all your heart.
Bianca: But it's such a risk.
Jack: What's the use of living if you're not going to take that risk?

Myrtle: Sweetheart, I saw your friend Lena a little while ago. [Erica gives "the look"] Have the two of you come to an understanding?

Erica: Bianca, you know that I never would do anything to hurt you. I mean, that is the last thing in the world I’d ever want to do. But believe me, it is much harder watching somebody else hurt you. And that's exactly what I believe Lena is going to do to you.
Bianca: Mother, why? Why when you see me happy do you always have to try to take it away from me?

Bianca: Oh, Mom, it will always be the wrong somebody. It will always be, because even though you're so adamant about the fact that you're ok with having a daughter who's a lesbian who's in a gay relationship, you're really not ok with it at all.

Bianca: It was good to see you.
Lena: Oh -- you want to come in?

Kendall: [W]hat makes you think I could get through to her [Bianca]? I mean, Binks and I aren't exactly soul sisters.
Erica: That's it, because you're not family. And you don't have a personal grudge against Lena.
Kendall: Except that she cheated with my two-timing boyfriend.
Erica: Well, use that. Use whatever you have to to open Bianca's eyes, to make her see this woman's treachery.

Bianca: I want to come in. I want to stay. I want to know what it feels like to be with somebody and never want to leave.



TRANSCRIPT

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

***** (clip a) [Previously on AMC: Michael tells Kendall that Lena's assignment is to sleep with Bianca]

Previously on "All My Children" --
Carlos: Those emails -- they're not my words. I didn't write the emails.
Tad: Looks to me like somebody's out to destroy Fusion without getting their own hands dirty.
Michael: Lena's current assignment is to get Bianca into bed.
Erica: I accept your proposal, Jack.
Jack: You know what they say about deathbed confessions -- you can't take them back.

***** (clip b) [Dr. Joe tells Bianca that Unca Jack will be fine (no Lena)]

Kendall: Bianca, there's something I need to tell you. Please, [amc030505b-inc starts] come with me, please.
Joe: Bianca.
Kendall: Please.
Joe: Wonderful news. Your uncle Jack has regained consciousness -- and he wants to see you.
[monitor beeps]
Erica: Jack.

***** (clip c) [Bianca tells Unca Jack she loves him (no Lena)]

[amc030505c starts]
Bianca: Oh. Thank God.
Erica: Oh.
Bianca: Can I cut in? Oh, I love you so much, uncle Jack.
Jack: Hey, Bianca. I love you, too, baby.
Bianca: I love you so much.
Jack: Thanks for coming.
Bianca: Thank you.

***** (clip d) [Boyd tells Tad about Lena's theory about Barton Phillips (no Lena)]

Tad: I'm telling you, Liza, it was almost too easy to follow the e-money transfers from Enchantment down to the Cayman Islands up to Ms. Stark's account.
Boyd: Yeah. According to Enchantment's C.F.O., Lena Kundera, the transfer of funds was manipulated by a Barton Phillips.
Liza: Who's he?
Tad: Well, Lena said that he's a numbers cruncher, an accountant that she had to can for incompetence.
Boyd: So according to Lena, this guy tapped into Enchantment's database and transferred the cash as payback for getting canned.
Liza: So he got the money to Gertrude Stark to instigate the lawsuit against Fusion?
Tad: Which could then be traced back to Erica.
Liza: But that means that we were never the target.
Boyd: No. Fusion was just collateral damage. Whoever set all this up was after Erica and my anti-aging formula.
Liza: Do you have any ideas who that might be?
Tad: Well, offhand, Michael Cambias springs to mind.
Simone: Ok. Guys? Group huddle. Now that the lawsuit is dead, I have got a brilliant way of taking Fusion off the crime sheet and back into the homes of millions.
Liza: This doesn't involve breaking and entering, does it?
Simone: No. No, no. But I do require a little aiding and abetting.
Liza: Oh, Simone's ideas are usually long on brilliant and short on legal.
Simone: No, I -- this will get us noticed, not arrested. I promise. Really.

Erica: He looks great, doesn't he, Joe? His color's coming back.
Joe: And his numbers are all about where they should be. Steady pulse, good respiration.
Jack: Great. When are you going to spring me?
Bianca: Oh, Jack, please. Take it easy on yourself.
Joe: You listen to Bianca, Jack. And I think we should all take this moment to realize how lucky we are. Well, I'll be back later.
Erica: Oh, Joe, just a minute. I'll go with you. But you -- don't you go anywhere.
Jack: Yes, ma'am.
Erica: Mm-hmm.
Bianca: I love you so much. Did I say that already?
Jack: Yeah, but I can't hear it enough.
Bianca: Oh. It's amazing -- you wake up and you think it's going to be an ordinary day. And then something like this happens.
Jack: Yeah, it kind of caught me by surprise, too. Bianca, does Lily know?
Bianca: Yeah. Mrs. Neff is going to bring her by as soon as you get moved to a different room. We thought the I.C.U. was kind of scary for her.
Jack: Yeah. Is she ok? Bianca: Yeah, yeah. She's fine. We were so careful how we told her.
Jack: Thanks.
Bianca: I don't know if she realizes how hurt you are. But you sure got mom's attention.
Jack: Yeah, I sure did, huh?
Bianca: Uh-huh. Seriously, uncle Jack, do you have any idea who did this to you?
Jack: I don't remember anything.
Bianca: Ok. Well, that's ok. Never mind. What matters is that you're here now with the people who love you more than anything.
Jack: You know, maybe it's the drugs, but you sure look different.
Bianca: Different, good?
Jack: Yeah. Do I know her?
Bianca: Oh. Not really, but you will because I think she's the one I've been looking for.

Lena: So, Mr. Montgomery -- is there any change?
Kendall: Yeah, Jackson woke up.
Lena: Oh, good. That means he'll be ok?
Kendall: That's what we're all hoping for.
Lena: Well, I'm glad for everyone who's close to him.
Kendall: Yes, well, Jackson is a very important part of this family.
Lena: Yes, but you're not, are you, Kendall?
Myrtle: I came. I came as soon as I heard. How's Jack?
Kendall: The news is good, Myrtle. He's doing just fine.
Myrtle: And Erica? Is she holding up?
Kendall: She's been incredibly brave. Amazing, really.
Myrtle: Good. Darling, are you here for Bianca?
Lena: Yes, Bianca and Erica. I'm trying to help any way I can. In fact, these are for them, so if you'll excuse me.
[Lena leaves]
Myrtle: Kendall, if you're here to cause trouble for Erica, you are going to have to answer to me first. I don't want any --
Erica: Oh, Myrtle.
Myrtle: Oh, darling.
Erica: Myrtle, I'm so glad you're here.
Myrtle: There you are, there you are.
Erica: Myrtle, Jack came through the surgery. He's going to be fine.
Myrtle: I know. It's wonderful news.
Erica: Yes.
Myrtle: Darling, I just -- I can only imagine how terribly hard it must be for you, now that you and Jack are apart.
Erica: Oh, no. We're not apart, Myrtle, no. In fact, we are never going to be apart again.
Myrtle: Well, what exactly does that mean?

***** (clip h) [Unca Jack tells Bianca to take a chance on Lena (no Lena)]

[amc030505h starts]
Jack: Well, tell me about your new ladylove.
Bianca: Are you sure you're up for that? Because I could go on for paragraphs.
Jack: Sure. I mean, maybe Erica might not want to hear it --
Bianca: Ah. Speaking of which --
Jack: Yeah.
Bianca: Looks to me like you and mom are back together.
Jack: Your mother's scared.
Bianca: Well, sure she is. It's scary. I can understand that. I mean, that's the story of my life. Afraid to give my heart away. Afraid not to.
Jack: You're just like your old man, you know that?
Bianca: Well, I like to think I am. And like you.
Jack: Oh.
Bianca: You two are the greatest guys that I’ve ever known.
Jack: You know, Bianca, there's nothing wrong with loving somebody with all your heart.
Bianca: But it's such a risk.
Jack: What's the use of living if you're not going to take that risk?

***** (clip i) [Erica tries to discuss Lena with Bianca (no Lena)]

Erica: Oh, Myrtle. Oh! I think it's way too soon to talk about that. I -- I know that Jack has [amc030505i-inc starts] months of recovery ahead of him.
Bianca: Oh. Myrtle, hi.
Myrtle: Hi, darling. How are you?
Bianca: How amazing is my uncle Jack?
Myrtle: Pretty darned amazing.
Erica: Doesn't he look wonderful, sweetheart?
Bianca: He does. He does. And, you know, it's so remarkable. After everything that he's been through today, all he wanted to know about was how I'm doing -- what's going on in my life and how happy I am.
Erica: Of course, honey. That's your uncle Jack. And he loves you. And he -- he's pulled through.
Bianca: Mm-hmm. And that is just one of the things that I am so grateful for. So grateful.
Myrtle: Sweetheart, I saw your friend Lena a little while ago. [Erica gives "the look"] Have the two of you come to an understanding?
Erica: Myrtle, you know, I just was thinking about this. They are so strict about the visiting hours in the I.C.U. so if you want to see Jack, I think you need to hurry.
Myrtle: I didn't know it was so late.
Erica: Yes.
Myrtle: And, darling, you and I will have another cup of tea and a nice chat --
Bianca: Ok. Love you.
Myrtle: Back at my place, ok? I love you, darling.
Erica: I love you, Myrtle.
Myrtle: Take care.
Erica: Take care.
[Erica sighs]
Erica: Sweetheart, I need to talk to you.
Bianca: Uh-oh. That's always a prelude to something unpleasant.
Erica: Look, you and I had quite a scare with uncle Jack today. But we got through that together. And no matter what obstacles are thrown at us, we are going to stand together on everything, right?
Bianca: Right.
Erica: Right.
Bianca: Mom, is this going somewhere?
Erica: Please, just -- just hear me out. I had no idea that you and Lena had become so close -- so close that you would confide this to your uncle Jack.
Bianca: Yeah. And he's happy for us.
Erica: The thing is, uncle Jack, of course, doesn't know all the details.
Bianca: What details?
Erica: Bianca, you know that I never would do anything to hurt you. I mean, that is the last thing in the world I’d ever want to do. But believe me, it is much harder watching somebody else hurt you. And that's exactly what I believe Lena is going to do to you.
Bianca: Mother, why? Why when you see me happy do you always have to try to take it away from me?

***** (clip j) [Bianca tells Erica to stuff it and Erica asks Kendall to talk to Bianca about Lena (no Lena)]

Erica: Bianca, [amc030505j-inc starts] the world can be a hurtful place. Just before I learned that Jack was shot, I learned something disturbing about Lena.
Bianca: Mom --
Erica: Believe me, it gives me no joy to be the messenger in this.
Bianca: Nothing that you tell me about her is going to change the way I feel about her. I mean, you can tell me that she's too old or she's too sophisticated or too foreign or too sexy or --
Erica: No, honey, that's not what this is about.
Bianca: Mom, this is me, your daughter, a grown woman, who has found somebody to care about.
Erica: The wrong somebody.
Bianca: Oh, Mom, it will always be the wrong somebody. It will always be, because even though you're so adamant about the fact that you're ok with having a daughter who's a lesbian who's in a gay relationship, you're really not ok with it at all.
Erica: Honey, please, hear me out.
Bianca: I know that this is difficult for you, Mom. But I am with Lena now. When I told uncle Jack that, he told me that I should never close my heart to love. And you don't know what I would give to hear you say the same words to me and to know that you really meant them.
[Bianca leaves and Kendall enters]
Kendall: So, you told Bianca about Lena?
Erica: Well, I tried. She wouldn't listen. She wouldn't listen to me, Kendall, but maybe she would listen to you.
Kendall: Oh, no, I don't think so, not in this lifetime, no.
Erica: Oh, please, Kendall. Could you find it in your heart to help your sister?

***** (clip k) [Lena asks Bianca to come into her room and Bianca looks nervous]

[amc030505k starts]
[Hallway outside Lena's hotel room]
Lena: [murmurs something indistinct as she and Binks walk into frame] ... he looked so much better.
Bianca: He looked... really good.
Lena: Yeah.
Bianca: It was so good to see him. [Lena fumbles in her purse, then drops her key on the floor] Oh. [Binks bends to retrieve it, holding it out to Lena in her right hand and smoothing her hair behind her ears with her left]
Lena: [inviting but carefully noncommittal] Do you want to come in?
[Binks just stares at her]

***** (clip l) [Kendall agrees to talk to Bianca about Lena (no Lena)]

Erica: So I’m thinking maybe if you go to her and [amc030505l-inc starts] you can reason with Bianca --
Kendall: Yeah, but what makes you think I could get through to her? I mean, Binks and I aren't exactly soul sisters.
Erica: That's it, because you're not family. And you don't have a personal grudge against Lena.
Kendall: Except that she cheated with my two-timing boyfriend.
Erica: Well, use that. Use whatever you have to to open Bianca's eyes, to make her see this woman's treachery.
Kendall: Ok, you know what? I'll do what I can. I will, but at this point, I'm not sure anything I say will change Bianca’s feelings.
Erica: What makes you say that? Do you think that it's gone too far? Do you think that Bianca’s in love with Lena? Oh.

***** (clip m) [Bianca wants some comfort sex...now]

[amc030505m starts]
[Close-up of Binks' hand clutching the key. Pan up to her face, which is still blank]
Lena: [reaches for the key, a little disappointed but trying not to show it]: Look, maybe it's not such a good time, with your uncle...
[Lena hitches purse up on her shoulder]
Bianca: No, I want to come in.
[Close-up of Lena, hopeful.]
[Medium shot of the two of them facing each other, Binks smiling, Lena starting to smile but not yet sure]
Bianca: I want to stay. I want to know what it feels like to be with somebody... and never want to leave.
[Lena beams, fidgeting with the key, then turns to unlock the door, throwing a quick glance over her shoulder and smiling at Binks again, as if to make sure she's still there; she enters the room, then steps aside to let Binks in]

If you are aware of any of the following clips from this episode, please contact me ASAP, Kym: Clip A, D

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!
