Not wanting to spoil Erica's wedding, Bianca claims she is upset because she broke up with Lena

From About All My Children
http://allmychildren.about.com/cs/recaps/a/bl20030721r.htm

Cambias smirks as he asks if Bianca isnt going to come to his defense, Lena told me that you don't lie or throw nasty rumors around, spreading the R word. As Bianca cries for him to shut up, Jackson comes in and grabs Michael by the shoulder and promises, You take one step toward me, I'll snap your neck like a twig, and God himself will call it justice! ...

She admits shes not eating three square meals a day, but like any normal person whos sad and upset, shes lost her appetite, but its not a relapse, The reason that I'm not eating and that Im not sleeping and that I burst into tears every two minutes is that it's over between me and Lena. She goes on that she was kidding herself, thinking she could get past everything thats happened, but shell never be able to look at Lena again and not see all of the horrible things that have happened. They'll always be there between them, keeping them apart, and she can't just forgive and forget, and cant ever go back to the way it was before. Kendall protests that she still loves her, but Bianca says everything is ruined now, and nothing can save it. She getting over it, and the wedding is helping. She needs to know that life goes on and dreams are possible and happiness is attainable, and the only way shes going to do that is if they go on with your wedding and let her be a part of it. Kendall looks on skeptically as Jack and Erica comfort her sister...

Erica tells Jack and Kendall as much as she faults Lena, it's Michael Cambias who caused it all.

From Soap Slut
http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm16.showMessage?topicID=91.topic

Bianca says that shes acting all freaky because she and Lena broke up. She blames it all on her inability to get past all the things Lena had done. Awww. Poor Lenas getting the scapegoat treatment. Bianca insists that shes moving on and taking part in wedding preparation is helping out a lot. Erica and Jack hug her joyously while Kendall looks on not in jealousy, but suspicion.

PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Simone got to know her rescuer.
Simone: Take me now!
Newbie: You want me to get you out of this elevator.
Simone: Well you can do that for starters. :::clunk:::
Newbie: I will carry you. Do the women of Pine Valley ever walk?
Simone: Not unless they have to. It's the Erica Kane syndrome. So what are you doing in Pine Valley?
Newbie: I have seen ads for Fusion and I came to check it out. Where are your partners?
Simone: Partners? What do you want with them?
Newbie: I am new. I had hoped to hook up with part of the A-list cast. Somehow I don't think that is you. Now excuse me while I disappear mysteriously.

Mia went to a sleazy bar.
Mia: Surely I can find a man here and win the bet. I'm not picky. I'll take anyone who's breathing. Oh look, there's Aidan.
Aidan: Ello Mia. Care for a gime of pewl?
Mia: :::giggle:::: I don't know how to play. Is this what you hit the little balls with? ::giggle:::
Aidan: No. That's a point of ile. Ere, ewse this stick.
Mia: :::knocks all the balls into the pockets in one turn::::
Aidan: Blimey! Did yew just pull the old pewl shark trick on me?
Mia: Didn't you catch on that I was just playing dumb?
Aidan: Not really. Yew Fusion girls act loik that awl the toim, especially when yew're dewing business.
Mia: My partners and I have a bet about who can land the sexiest man first. Would you like to be my sexiest man?
Aidan: Oi don't know. Me career as really suffered becawse of the Mowreen debacle. Oi'd oped to mewv on tew one of the A-list cast members and Oi don't think that's yew.

Maggie came by to see Greenlee.
Maggie: What are you doing?
Greenlee: I'm trying to find something to wear.
Maggie: I'll help you throw something together. Fashion is my life.
Greenlee: No thanks.
Maggie: Are you trying to impress Carlos?
Greenlee: Who?
Maggie: You know - the really hot guy you used to date. :::kaching:::
Greenlee: No, that's all over. Now I'm going to chase after the mysterious newbie in town. Carlos is all yours.
Maggie: Are you sure? Because I wouldn't want to get in the way of true love.
Greenlee: No no. I'm over him. He's yours. I insist.
Maggie: No, I couldn't take him from you. I just couldn't live with myself if I did.
Carlos: I love it when women fight over me because I'm so hot.
Greenlee: Face it Maggie. The Fusion girls - even the ones that aren't A-list cast members- have moved on to the mysterious newbie. Carlos is all yours.
Maggie: Great. That must make me a C-level cast member. Oh well, do you have any advice for me?
Greenlee: Not really. Assassins didn't work, falling objects missed, he seems to be immune to poison.
Maggie: :::sigh::: First Henry, now this. My life sucks.

Later Simone, Greenlee and Kendall met back at Fusion.
Simone: I met my sexiest man. He's mysterious and heroic.
Greenlee: I met my sexiest man. He's mysterious and flirtatious.
Kendall: I met my sexiest man. He's mysterious and kind.
Simone: I wonder what Mia's doing right now.
Mia: I'm meeting my sexiest man. He's mysterious and hanging out in a sleazy bar.
Newbie: So now I have met all of them. My work for today is done. The audience is now breathless with anticipation of which one I shall choose. I can tell. People often yawn from lack of oxygen.

TRANSCRIPT

Unverified in non-clip parts

***** (clip a) [The real Michael visits Bianca (no Lena]

Bianca: No. No, it's not you.
Michael: Oh, but it is, and, sweetheart, I have missed you so much, Ive thought about you so much.
Bianca: No. Go away. Go away.
Michael: Oh, don't say that. I can't stand to be away from you. It's been torture to be away from you. I can't stand it.
Erica: Sweetheart, we've run out of lemon for the tea, but I brought some --
[Erica gasps]
Erica: Oh, my God! Michael, what are you doing here? Bianca, you didn't let him in, did you?
Michael: The door is open, Erica. As a matter of fact, you should do something about that.
Erica: I'm calling security.
Michael: I wouldn't do that.
Bianca: Stay away from her!
Erica: It's all right, sweetheart. He wouldn't dream of hurting me again. You, get out! Get out right now!
Michael: You're overreacting, Erica. I'm not going to hurt --
Erica: Get out of here! You haven't seen overreaction!
Kendall: If my mother does not kill you, Michael, I swear to God I will!

***** (clip b) [Michael tries to get Bianca to defend him (Lena mention)]

Michael: Kendall, do you make it a [amc030721b-inc starts] point to misunderstand my intentions? I'm hardly the monster that you all make me out to be here. Bianca, you're going to give me the benefit of the doubt, aren't you?
Erica: Get somebody up here right now!
Michael: You're not going to cry wolf, are you?
Erica: Don't you come near her. Don't you take one more step near her! If you even think of doing to her what you did to Kendall and me, I swear to God you will be dead before you hit the ground!
Michael: Bianca, you're going to come to my defense here, aren't you?
Erica: Get out!
Michael: Lena told me that you don't lie or throw nasty rumors around, spreading the r word.
Bianca: Shut up! Shut up!
[Jack comes in the room]

***** (clip c) [Jack assures Bianca that Kendall and Lena are safe from Michael (Lena mention)]

[amc030721c starts]
Jack: Yeah, that's right. You take one step toward me, I'll snap your neck like a twig, and God himself will call it justice. You understand me?
Erica: Jack, stop it. He's not worth it.
Michael: You know, just because your case against me is never going to go to trial is no reason for you to go all vigilante, counselor.
Erica: Just get rid of him, Jack, please.
Jack: You show your face around here again, I might just forget Im supposed to uphold the law.
Michael: It's been real.
Jack: I'm doubling security. Are you all right?
Erica: Oh, I'm fine.
Jack: Kendall?
Kendall: I'm fine.
Erica: Baby, listen to me. You cannot let that horrid man upset you. I mean, he is very hateful, but thank God nothing -- nothing has really happened yet. No harm has been done.
Jack: Look, I am going to make sure that that man does not terrorize this family. I'm going to put Cambias away for the rest of his life, I promise you.
Erica: Do you hear your Uncle Jack? Cambias is going to be gone, and then Kendall and Lena and I will be safe, so you don't have to waste one more second worrying about us, honey.
Erica: But that doesn't mean we can't worry about you.
Bianca: I'm ok.
Jack: Sweetheart, are you sure? David Hayward told me he found you on the rooftop of the clinic, and he was afraid that maybe you're suffering from depression of some kind.
Kendall: Do you know how frantic we were when you left Myrtles with that suitcase? Where were you going?
Erica: Honey, please tell us what's wrong. Uncle Jack and I will be there for you. We'll do everything we can to help you to make it better. Only, please tell us, honey. We'll postpone the wedding even, right?
Jack: Oh, absolutely. We'll do anything. Family always comes first.
Bianca: No, no, no, no. It's ok, it's ok. I will tell you the truth. I'll tell you everything.

***** (clip d) [Bianca lies saying that she and Lena have broken up, but Kendall looks like she doesn't buy it completely (Lena mention)]

[amc030721d starts]
Bianca: Look, you guys, you're so sweet to be worried about me. I love you for it.
Erica: Well, honey, we love you.
Bianca: I know, and I guess I haven't been acting like myself lately. Call it depression, call it, you know, whatever, but whatever David Hayward said, I was not about to take a flying leap off of any building.
Erica: But you're not eating.
Bianca: Yeah. Not three square meals a day. Like any person, normal person, who's sad and upset, I -- I lost my appetite. It's not a relapse. The reason that I'm not eating and that Im not sleeping and that I burst into tears every two minutes is that it's over between me and Lena.
Erica: Honey, Im sorry.
Bianca: No, Mom, you know what? It's ok. It's not your fault. It's nobody's fault except my own.
Jack: Sweetheart, how -- how is it your fault?
Bianca: Because I was just kidding myself, thinking that I could see past everything that's happened. I cant. It's too late, and -- and Ill never be able to look at Lena again and not see all of the horrible things that have happened. They'll always be there between us, keeping us apart, and I just -- I can't just forgive and forget.
Jack: Maybe with time --
Bianca: No, no, no, there's not enough time in the world. I -- I can't ever go back to the way it was before.
Kendall: But, Bianca, if you still love her --
Bianca: No, no, you know what? Nothing -- everything is ruined now, and nothing can fix it.
Erica: Honey, I know how it feels. Nothing's more painful than a broken heart and betrayal.
Bianca: No, it's ok. I'm getting over it. I am, and the wedding is helping.
Erica: It is?
Bianca: Yeah. Right now I need to know that -- that life goes on and dreams are possible and happiness is attainable, and the only way that Im going to do that is if you guys go on with your wedding and let me be a part of it.
Jack: Sweetheart, are you -- are you sure that's what you want?
Bianca: Yes. Uncle Jack, this is the one good thing I have to look forward to. Please don't take it away from me.
Erica: Oh, honey, if you're sure --
Bianca: Of course I'm sure. If you want me to smile again, then I got to see you at that altar next to Uncle Jack, and I want to see you promise that you're going to love him forever.
Erica: And I'm going to love you forever, honey.
Jack: We all will.

***** (clip e) [Erica asks Bianca to move back to her place (Lena mention)]

[amc030721e starts]
Erica: Bianca, honey, you don't plan to move into an apartment of your own right away, do you?
Bianca: Oh, well, Mom, you know, Im used to being alone.
Erica: Oh, I know, but, you know, with the wedding coming up now, it just seems staying here would make more sense.
Bianca: Um -- I don't know about that, Mom.
Erica: Well, of course, the choice is yours. However, I know I'm going to be making a lot of 3:00 a.m. Panic phone calls, really frantic about my color schemes, my seating arrangements --
Jack: Bianca, can I give you a little tip here? Unless you want a lot of sleepless nights, you might just want to say yes to your mother on this point.
Erica: Honey, it makes so much sense for you. I mean, this way, you could really find that special place for yourself without having to rush into anything, and I swear, I will certainly give you whatever space you need to come to terms with all you've been through with Lena.
Bianca: Oh, ok. Look, I'll stay tonight at least, ok?
Erica: Ok, that's wonderful. That's wonderful, and we'll discuss more permanent plans in the morning.
Bianca: You know, thank you for the sandwich, Mom. It was perfect. You know, I didn't even realize how hungry I was.
Erica: Well, good. Honey, would you like me to make you another one?
Bianca: No, no. Now I'm full, and I want to run down to Enchantment because I have a couple of loose ends to tie up on the youth line.
Erica: Honey, no, don't do that. I mean, it's way too late to be working.
Bianca: Yeah, but I'm not tired, and --
Erica: Ok. Actually, maybe that's good. Maybe this will be a good distraction for you.
Bianca: Right.
Erica: Yeah.
Bianca: Thank you for understanding.
Erica: Of course.
Bianca: Good night. Good night, Uncle Jack.
Jack: There will be an officer downstairs waiting to escort you, ok?
Bianca: Ok. Good night, Kendall.
Erica: Sweetheart? I'll wait up for you.
[Bianca leaves and is upset]

***** (clip f) [Kendall wonders if there isn't more bothering Bianca than breaking up with Lena (Lena mention)]

[amc030721e starts]
Poor baby. After all she's been through? I'll tell you what, as much as I fault Lena, it's Michael Cambias who is guilty of all of this. He's caused it all.
Kendall: Yeah, she's -- she's really burnt up over this whole thing.
Erica: She is. Kendall, did you think that maybe Bianca was holding anything back?
Kendall: Well, yeah, definitely, but it's not easy to play a broken heart to a full house.
Erica: No, and Biancas right. Some things are truly unforgivable.
Kendall: But not everything, right?
Erica: Oh, no, of course not everything, Kendall, no. Thank you so much for all your help tonight.
Kendall: Well, what's family for, right? You know what? I got to go.
Erica: Oh, of course. You have a date?
Kendall: Yeah, with Fusion. Greenlee's going to bust my b*** for playing hooky.
Erica: I can write you a note.
[Jack laughs]
Kendall: Oh, no, no, thanks. I'll wing it myself. I'll call you tomorrow.
Erica: Ok.
Kendall: Ok. Good night, Jack.
Jack: Good night, Kendall. Come here, you. Now, you listen to me. Bianca is going to be just fine because we are going to make sure that she is, ok?
Erica: Ok.

***** (clip g) [Bianca sees Michael again (no Lena)]

[amc030721g starts]
[Bianca enters the Enchantment offices]
Michael: Well, here we are again. Miss me?

***** (clip h) [Michael alludes to the rape with Bianca (no Lena)]

[amc030721h starts]
Erica: Oh, thank God this day is over.
Jack: Yeah. You know, though, sweetheart, Bianca is much stronger than we tend to give her credit.
Bianca: No, Michael, stay away from me.
Michael: Oh, honey, you don't need to be that way. It's just you and me now, the way you like it. Your mom and your sister aren't here to spoil our fun.
Erica: I was so afraid, Jack. I was so afraid that I was going to lose Bianca again.
Jack: But, honey, you didn't. You didn't. She's safe and she knows she's very, very much loved.
Michael: I've been thinking about you ever since that night. I cannot get you out of my mind. I've wanted to tell the whole world, but who else can understand what we really shared that night?
Erica: I just have to keep reminding myself -- Biancas not a little girl anymore, and even though it hurts to see her hurting so much, she truly is capable of taking care of herself.
Michael: You know, I was wondering if you were going to run to mommy and tell her about our little, you know, tryst.
Erica: I'm still afraid, Jack.
Jack: Of what, sweetheart?
Erica: Of Michael Cambias. The way he barged in here tonight, the way he lorded over us.
Jack: Listen to me. Very soon now, I promise you, Michael Cambias is going to cease to be a threat to anybody in this town.
Erica: Ok, you're right. I am just going to banish all negative thoughts and just concentrate on our fabulous future.
Michael: You know, I have to go now, but when you sleep tonight, dream about me. Till next time.
