SYNOPSIS

Erica rags on Greenlee for hiring Lena; Mia gets confused with Lena's name when talking with Michael; Greenlee rags on Carlos because, well, he's Carlos (no Lena, but she's there in spirit!)



RE-CAPS:

From The Official Site at ABC.com:
http://abc.go.com/daytime/allmychildren/episodes/2003-04/20030610.html

A livid Erica confronts Greenlee about arranging for Lena to find another job in Pine Valley... Carlos presses Greenlee, who reluctantly admits that she helped Lena because Leo would have wanted her to.

From About All My Children

Mia declines when Michael offers something to cool her down after working up a sweat on the punching bag. He suggests a real drink, noting that he can think up more creative ways to work off that energy. When Mia accuses him of coming on to a woman against her will, Cambias sighs Kendall’s been looking for more sympathy, adding that she is the endless victim. Mia says Kendall told her what he did, and she believes her. Michael shrugs that’s her choice; he turns to leave, but Mia’s a little curious, “Why, out of all Kendall’s friends, did you think you could come on to me and I’d just fall for it?” Cambias wonders if she’s always like when somebody asks her for a date, but she points out that he’s not just somebody—he’s the jerk who tried to assault one of her best friends, and her mother! Michael protests that Kendall turned against him, but Mia reminds him of why! She concludes that he was cheating on Kendall with Allison, quickly catching herself and correcting, “Lena.” Michael picks up on that, and says this isn’t about him or her friend Kendall, “It’s about you, and that guy that made you feel like a fool!”...

Greenlee’s in no mood for this, but Erica accuses her of getting Lena a job with her grandfather to spite her! Greenlee maintains she did someone a favor and there was no grand scheme here. She tries to excuse herself, but Erica insists she’s not finished with her yet! Greenlee assures Carlos she’ll be fine and he leaves after telling her to yell if she needs him. Greens tells Erica she can take care of herself, but Bianca can’t; she needs all the help she can get to escape her vise grip! Erica asks if she expects her to believe she wants to help Bianca, the same Bianca she always referred to as Lesbianca, “Since when are you Bianca’s friend?” Greenlee even blackmailed Bianca about being gay, just to save her own tail and now she wants to help her and Lena? When Erica insists Greenlee did this only to hurt her, Greens agrees it is about her! Bianca’s being steamrolled by a mother who won’t let her live her own life! Erica fires back that she knows nothing about a mother’s love, because her mother was never there for her; she obviously never got attention when she was growing up, which is why she demands it all the time now! Greenlee counters that Erica tries to get attention from every guy she passes on the street because her daddy never broke stride for her! She comes in here making threats because she can’t control her own daughter, or her own life, “How many times were you engaged to Jackson Montgomery, five?” She should let him go before she ruins his life any more than she already has! When Erica insists that Jackson Montgomery and her personal life are off limits, Greenlee wonders who said they had to play by her rules? Has she considered that she could be ruining Jackson’s life, the same way she’s going to ruin Bianca’s? She messed with her own child only because she didn’t live up to being her dream daughter, meaning straight! Erica insists, straight or gay, she loves Bianca and couldn’t ask for a better daughter, “Would your mother say the same thing about you? I don’t think so!” Carlos says he knows her mother is proud of her. Greenlee claims she doesn’t care what Mary thinks of her, but Carlos knows better. She pretends what Erica said doesn’t matter, but he knows that’s not true. Greenlee counters that, unlike some people, she doesn’t live for her parents’ approval; she figured out real fast that was never going to happen, so why bother? Carlos says she has his approval—is that enough? Greenlee says she blackmailed Bianca and used snarky names, but Carlos insists she didn’t mean to hurt her. Greenlee says she knew exactly what she was doing; it served her purpose at the time and she doesn’t regret doing it! She’s not good and virtuous and never will be, so maybe they should just end this now, before he’s her next target. Carlos asks if she wants to end things? Greenlee says no, but if he has some twisted fantasy about who she is, he should forget it because she’s not perfect. Carlos laughs as he says he never thought she was, and who wants somebody that’s perfect? He knows she’s not the monster Erica’s making her out to be, and it was very nice of her to help Bianca out by getting Lena a job.

Greens asks if he bought everything she told Erica about true love? She did it because she wanted to drive Erica crazy—there’s nothing more beautiful than the sight of Erica Kane on full throttle! Carlos thinks there’s something more to this, and asks if she can’t tell him the truth? Greenlee snaps, “Trust me, you don’t want to know!” She warns him not to push this, and admits, “Fine, I did it for Leo! Bianca was his best friend. Even though she’s not exactly my favorite person in the world, I owed it to Leo to do it for her. If he were here, he’d say, ‘Greens, you’ve gotta help Binks out. She loves this Lena chick—she wants to give her a second chance, just like you gave me!’ So, I got Lena the job for Leo—happy now?”

PARODY

No parody written for this episode. Sniff.



QUOTES

Erica: You got Lena a job with your grandfather so you could spite me and make sure that Bianca never recovers from what Lena did to her.

Mia: After she found out what a lowlife you are. You lied to her. You cheated on her with another woman. You made her think that you loved her, and all the while you were sleeping with Alison behind her back.
Michael: Whoa -- wait a second. Who's Alison?
Mia: I mean Lena. Whatever her name is.

Greenlee: I can take care of myself, but your daughter can’t. She needs all the help she can trying to escape your vise grip.

Erica: Is this the same Bianca you always referred to as "lesbianca," I think you always called her? Since when are you Bianca’s friend?

Greenlee: I'm a sucker for true love.

Greenlee: Ok, who are we talking about, me or yourself? You're still trying to get attention from every guy you pass on the street because your daddy never broke stride for you.

Erica: I couldn't control my own daughter even if I wanted to.

Greenlee: You can't even control your own life. How many times were you engaged to Jackson Montgomery? Five?

Greenlee: Obviously you didn't hear everything Erica said. I blackmailed Bianca, I used snarky names and embarrassed --
Carlos: You didn't mean to hurt her, though. That's not your way --
Greenlee: Yes, I did. I aim and I fire. I knew exactly what I was doing. It served my purpose at the time, and I don't regret doing it.

Greenlee: Bianca was his best friend. Even though she's not exactly my favorite person in the world, I owed it to Leo to do it for her. If he were here, he would say, "Greens, you got to help Binks out. She loves this Lena chick. She wants to give her a second chance, just like you did with me." So I got Lena the job. Not to mess with Erica Kane’s head, not to hurt Bianca, or for any other reason. I did it for Leo! Happy now?



TRANSCRIPT

Unverified in non-clip parts

***** (clip a) [Erica yells at Greenlee for helping Lena find a job (no Lena)]

Greenlee: I just came back from a funeral, Erica. [amc030610a-inc starts] I'm in no mood.
Erica: Why don't you just stick to the subject? You got Lena a job with your grandfather so you could spite me and make sure that Bianca never recovers from what Lena did to her.
Greenlee: You are so off base. I did someone a favor. Lena needed a job. Grandfather needed an international finance expert. There's no grand scheme here. Sorry to disappoint you. If you'll excuse me --
Erica: Oh, no way. I'm not finished with you yet.

***** (clip b) [Mia mixes up Lena's name with Allison's when talking with Michael (no Lena)]

Mia: Explain to me something because I'm just -- I'm a little bit curious. Why out of all of Kendall’s friends did you think that you could come on to me and I would just fall for it?
Michael: No, this isn't some plot. I saw you. You looked thirsty.
Mia: Would you just stop, ok? Just answer my question. What is it? Is it my eyes? The way that I walk? The way that I was punching the punching bag that just screamed out naive, weak, pushover? What?
Michael: Is this what you always think when somebody asks you out for a date?
Mia: Oh. Oh, but you're not just somebody. I mean, you're Michael Cambias. You're the jerk who tried to assault one of my best friends and her mother.
Michael: I don't even know why I bother.
Mia: No, no, wait a second. I really want to know. I mean, did you think that I’d just be falling all over myself to go out with you after you did what you did?
Michael: Oh, my God, I asked you if you wanted a bottle of water.
Mia: I don't want anything from you. The way that you used Kendall --
Michael: This was her version of events, Mia. Kendall turned against me, worked with her mother to wreck --
Mia: After she found out what a lowlife you are. You lied to her. You cheated on her with another woman. You made her think that you loved her, and all the while you were sleeping with Alison behind her back.
Michael: Whoa -- wait a second. Who's Alison?
Mia: I mean Lena. Whatever her name is. That's not the point, ok?
Michael: No, no. Actually, I think it is the point. This isn't about me or your friend Kendall, is it? It's about you and that guy that made you feel like a fool.

***** (clip c) [Erica does not believe that Greenlee wanted to help Lena, just wanted to get back at her (no Lena)]

[amc030610 starts]
Carlos: Ms. Kane, I would appreciate it if you would --
Greenlee: Carlos, it's ok. Really. I can deal with her.
Carlos: Fine. Yell if you need me.
Greenlee: I can take care of myself, but your daughter can’t. She needs all the help she can trying to escape your vise grip.
Erica: Oh, and you expect me to believe that you want to help Bianca?
Greenlee: That's right.
Erica: Is this the same Bianca you always referred to as "lesbianca," I think you always called her? Since when are you Bianca’s friend?
Greenlee: All in the past.
Erica: And all this from the woman who blackmailed Bianca, who threatened to tell everybody in town that Bianca was gay just to save her own tail? And now you want me to believe that you're trying to help Bianca and Lena?
Greenlee: Yeah. I'm a sucker for true love.
Erica: Oh, you're a sucker, all right. You are trying to hurt me, and I'm not going to let you.
Greenlee: Ok, I'll admit it. It's about you. Bianca's being steamrolled by a mother who says that she loves her --
Erica: How dare you.
Greenlee: And she won't let her live her own life.
Erica: You know nothing about my relationship with Bianca, but I know where you're coming from. Because what would you know about a mother's love? Your mother was never there for you.
Greenlee: You have no idea what my mother has done.
Erica: She's the reason you demand attention all the time. Obviously, you never got that attention when you were growing up.
Greenlee: Ok, who are we talking about, me or yourself? You're still trying to get attention from every guy you pass on the street because your daddy never broke stride for you.
Erica: Oh, you don't know what you're talking about.
Greenlee: Oh, yes, I do. You come in here making threats because you can't control your own daughter.
Erica: I couldn't control my own daughter even if I wanted to.
Greenlee: Oh, no kidding. You can't even control your own life. How many times were you engaged to Jackson Montgomery? Five?
Erica: Excuse me, will you stick to the subject --
Greenlee: Jack will thank you for it, though. That way, you won't ruin his life any more than you already have.

***** (clip d) [Greenlee tells Erica that Erica has a problem with Bianca because she's gay (no Lena)]

[amc030610d starts]
Erica: Jackson Montgomery and my personal life are off-limits.
Greenlee: Who says I have to play by your rules? Have you considered the fact that you could be ruining Jackson’s life the way you're going to ruin Bianca’s?
Erica: No, I never have. And you just can't go around saying things like that.
Greenlee: Like what? Like what? The truth? You'd mess with your own child only because she doesn't live up to what you consider to be your dream daughter -- meaning straight.
Erica: Straight or gay, I love Bianca. I couldn't ask for a better daughter. But here's something for you to think about -- would your mother say the same thing about you? I don't think so.
Carlos: What she said about your mother --
Greenlee: Erica's just blowing smoke.
Carlos: I know she's proud of you.
Greenlee: She's not, but guess what. I don't care what my mother thinks of me.
Carlos: Yes, you do.

***** (clip e) [Greenlee tells Carlos she is not a nice person (no Lena)]

[amc030610e starts]
Carlos: Don't do -- don't do this.
Greenlee: Do what?
Carlos: Hide from me. I mean, what Erica said -- you pretend like you feel nothing, but that's not true.
Greenlee: Unlike some people, I don't live for my parents' approval. I figured out real fast that it was never going to happen, so why bother?
Carlos: You have my approval. Is that enough?
Greenlee: Obviously you didn't hear everything Erica said. I blackmailed Bianca, I used snarky names and embarrassed --
Carlos: You didn't mean to hurt her, though. That's not your way --
Greenlee: Yes, I did. I aim and I fire. I knew exactly what I was doing. It served my purpose at the time, and I don't regret doing it.
Carlos: Come on, Greenlee, you're not --
Greenlee: I'm not good and virtuous, Carlos, and I'm never going to be. So maybe we should just end this now before you're my next target.

***** (clip f) [Carlos tells Greenlee that she was nice to find Lena a job; she denies it (no Lena)]

[amc030610f starts]
Carlos: Is that what you want? You want to end things?
Greenlee: No. But if you have some twisted fantasy of who you think I am, then forget it. I'm not perfect.
Carlos: I never thought you were. Besides, who wants someone that's perfect?
Greenlee: So you understand?
Carlos: I know you're not the monster that Erica’s making you out to be.
Greenlee: I told you, she's just desperate to stick it to me and control every move that Bianca makes.
Carlos: Yeah, but that was very nice of you to help Bianca, get Lena a job.
Greenlee: You didn't buy that stuff that I told Erica about true love and everything? I did it because I wanted to drive Erica crazy, and there's nothing more beautiful than the sight of Erica Kane in full throttle.
Carlos: Maybe, but there's something more to this.
Greenlee: There's also the fringe benefit of stopping Erica from controlling Bianca’s life the way Mary loves to control mine.
Carlos: Can you at least tell me the truth?
Greenlee: I am.
Carlos: Trust me --
Greenlee: Trust me, you don't want to know.

***** (clip g) [Greenlee admits to Carlos that she found Lena a job because of Leo, not to hurt Erica (no Lena)]

[amc030610g starts]
Greenlee: Don't push this, Carlos.
Carlos: God, I wish I knew what I was --
Greenlee: Fine! Fine! I did it for Leo.
Carlos: Leo?
Greenlee: Bianca was his best friend. Even though she's not exactly my favorite person in the world, I owed it to Leo to do it for her. If he were here, he would say, "Greens, you got to help Binks out. She loves this Lena chick. She wants to give her a second chance, just like you did with me." So I got Lena the job. Not to mess with Erica Kane’s head, not to hurt Bianca, or for any other reason. I did it for Leo! Happy now?

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.
