SYNOPSIS

Lena finds Bianca at Erica's penthouse and Bianca dumps Lena AGAIN (4th break-up; by Bianca); Lena tells Bianca she loves her for the 9th time; Lena also tells Erica she loves Bianca (brave woman)



RE-CAPS:

From The Official Site at ABC.com:
http://abc.go.com/daytime/allmychildren/episodes/2003-04/20030723.html

Erica refuses to allow Lena to see Bianca when she arrives at the penthouse. Lena is thrown when Erica claims Bianca told her that she and Lena had broken up. After arguing, Erica calls the guards, demanding that Lena be removed from the premises. Bianca enters and emotionally orders the guards to release Lena. A pained Bianca tells Lena that their relationship is over. Lena refuses to believe this and vows to find out what is causing Bianca to push her away.

Previously on All My Children
Copying my previously from before, Mumbles bought Greenlee a statue.
Jack was anxious to get Asshole behind bars for good.
Bianca stated that she was upset because she broke up with Lena.
Kendall was suspicious of her lying sister...

Thereís a buzz by security. They seem to have let someone through that wasnít on their list, sheís on her way up. Erica flings open the door (because thatís the smart thing to do when an intruder is imminent) when Lena knocks on it. Lena wants to see Bianca but Erica wonít let her, orders from Bianca herself.

Lena is convinced that Erica is lying. She rambles on confusedly until everyone realizes that Lena is completely out of the loop as far as a breakup is concerned. She had no idea that she was residing in Dump City. Erica is determined to be rid of Lena so she offers her some bucks-o-rama to skedaddle from town, specifically 3 million dollars...

Lena wonít be bought. Since Lena wonít leave, Erica calls security. They show up and are in the process of dragging Lena out the door when the commotion draws Bianca out of the kitchen. She demands that security let Lena go. Erica calls off the dogs. Bianca requests that she and Lena have some privacy so she can actually break up with her like she said she already did...

Cut to Bianca, who is still trying to dump Lena. Lena is so, so upset and confused. Bianca declares that Lena didnít do anything wrong, itís just that she doesnít want a relationship anymore. Incidentally, this is almost a word-for-word speech of what Lena was telling Bianca in their infamous airport scene lo those many months ago. Lena recognizes the crappy excuse for what it is (I would hope so, since she used it herself) but isnít able to get any pertinent information out of Bianca vis a vis the real reason Binks is giving her the heave ho...

Lena finally does as Bianca requests which is leave but sheís still not going to let it lie. Once sheís gone, Bianca collapses into a blubbering, crying mess. When Erica and Opal return, she snaps into a fake cheery mood with a skill that would make a schizophrenic proud. Eee, scary.

COMMENTARIES

Commentary by Black Knight
For a good example of Lena Kundera manipulation, look at the scene where she barges into the penthouse demanding to see Bianca, and Opal points out that they're in the middle of wedding preparations, and Lena tells Opal that's none of her concern. But then when she sees Opal being put off by her rudeness, she backs down, apologizes, and then goes into a spiel designed to get Opal's sympathy, which worked and would have netted her Opal's help, if Erica hadn't stepped in and sent Opal off. Classic Lena Kundera manipulation.



PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Michael ran into Kendall at the Valley Inn.
Michael: Searching for your mysterious newbie? You once searched for me. Remember?
Kendall: I had the brain of an artichoke there for a while but I've recovered.
Jack: What are you doing here Michael?
Michael: I came to ask you to drop the charges against me. If you do I'll leave town. There's a rumor that I've been written out.
Jack: Sorry. You're going to trial. Bubba and the boys have your "welcome to Statesville" party all planned and I don't want to disappoint them.

Michael went back to his condo where he was attacked by a thousand stinging scorpions.
Michael: Hey, that didn't happen!
Lizzie: Not yet anyway.
Michael: I'll call my daddy on the phone. Daddy, everyone in this town is being mean to me. Make them stop.
Alexander: Why are you calling me about this?
Michael: To show that not only am I evil incarnate but that I'm a whiny baby as well.
Alexander: Well I won't help you. You're a disgrace to the family. Besides, I'm stuck here in the desert in my broken down limo. Oh look here's someone coming to help me.
Ryan's arm: Need some help?
Alexander: Who are you?
Ryan's arm: I'm a cast member returning slowly, one body part at a time.

Lena came to Erica's penthouse.
Lena: I need to see Bianca.
Erica: Absolutely not. In fact, I'll give you three million dollars to leave her alone.
Lena: Three million dollars?
Erica: Hey, that's a good price. I got rid of one of her high school friends for only about 10 grand.
Lena: You can't keep me from Bianca.
Erica: Of course I can. :::goes to intercom::::
Security: Now you see them, now you don't security. How may I help you?
Erica: I need someone to come and throw this woman out of my apartment right away.
Security: We'll send the whole team.
Erica: That's good but you shouldn't have let her up in the first place. And what about the other night when Michael Cambias was running around in the building?
Security: The little slimy guy? He told us he was selling Girl Scout cookies.

Mary dropped by the Fusion office.
Mary: Hello Greenlee. What a lovely statue. Did Jack buy that for me?
Greenlee: You're delusional again mother. He's going to marry Erica tomorrow. It's too late for you to do anything to stop it.
Mary: Don't be silly. Tomorrow could be at least three weeks away in Pine Valley time. I want you to read my diary from the year before you were born and then you'll know why I'm so interested in Jack.
Greenlee: I don't have time to read that.
Mary: Then just read the pages that I've highlighed in yellow from the month you were conceived. The one's that are titled "Jack Be Nimble"
Greenlee: Sorry, I'm too busy.
Mary: Then at least read this letter which I've tried to make look old even though I wrote it yesterday.
Greenlee: Forget it.
Mary: I don't know why she's so uncooperative. I gave her the best childhood her nannies could provide. I know - I'll just leave the letter here where she'll be sure to find it and read it. Let me read it again just in case the audience missed it the first time. Dear Jack, I sit here pondering the fact that Jimmy Carter is president of the United States and that I'm pregnant with your child. I hope you find this out and whisk me away before my disco wedding to Roger Smythe. But if you don't get this letter until sometime in 2003, I hope it will make you cancel your wedding to a snippy little cosmetics executive and come back to me and our beautiful daughter Gracie.



QUOTES

Kendall: Maybe there you'll learn what it feels like to deal with perverts.

Erica: Opal, would you please leave us alone for a moment? You could go into the kitchen. You could put the TV on.

Erica: If you stop seeing Bianca for good, I will pay you $3 million.

Michael: There's no problem here, Mr. Montgomery. I was just making small talk with your stepdaughter-to-be. I'm sorry. This town can be so incestuous.

Michael: So you and your harem can live happily ever after?

Lena: Has it ever worked for you, paying off Bianca's girlfriends? Has it ever actually bought her an ounce of happiness?

Erica: You are not her girlfriend. You have never been her girlfriend. You are a con artist. You jumped from Michael Cambias' bed to Bianca to seduce her, lie to her, to betray her. So, please, don't act like you are insulted over $3 million because you've been traded for considerably less.

Michael: I'm sick of this town, its needy women and their lap-dog men.

Kendall: The man is a sexual predator. Ok, and it's gotten worse. I can see it in his eyes. It's like he knows that he can get away with it now.
Michael: Jack, lock up your sisters and your wives.

Alexander: Stop whining. It grates on my ear.

Alexander: Just how many women do you intend to abuse before you get caught?

Bianca: I don't think badly of you, ok? I -- I just don't want a relationship right now, not with anyone.
Lena: But why not? What -- what happened? What did I do?
Bianca: Nothing. You didn't do anything wrong, ok? It just -- it didn't work out. Lena, you don't need me to be happy. You can find someone --
Lena: Stop it! Don't tell me who I need to be happy. I need you, ok? We settled that. Bianca, why are you lying to me?
Bianca: I'm not.
Lena: Yes, you are.

Lena: Look, you love me. Now, you can tell me to go away a million times, but I don't believe that you don't love me. What is it, Bianca? I mean, if it's not your mother, is it me? Is it something I did? Just tell me. I won't do it again. Is it someone else? Let me know. We can fix that. Just -- god, tell me what it is. Bianca, don't make me leave. We can get through anything together. Anything.

Kendall: Is this a fatherly lecture on alternative love?

Kendall: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, it's him.

Bianca: You just have to accept that it's over.
Lena: I don't accept it. I'll never accept it.

Lena: It won't do you any good. I'll find out why you're doing this. Whatever it is, I'll know.

Lena: Oh, stop it. Bianca, I don't want anybody else. I love you. I've never loved anyone. When you loved me back, I -- I couldn't believe my luck. So I can't just let you go. If you think I can, then you're just beginning to know me.

Bianca: Goodbye, Lena.
Lena: No. This is far from goodbye.

Kendall: Well, he's very distinguished looking.
Maitre d': Yes, I understand. Miss, we have many distinguished-looking guests, but none fitting your description.
Kendall: Not with deep, dark eyes that seem to look right into your soul?
Maitre d': No, miss. No one like that.
Kendall: Well, I mean, how can you be so sure?
Maitre d': Because we have had inquiries already about this gentleman from several other women.
Kendall: Oh. Ok. Well, let me tell you -- I have a card for you. Here's my card. If you can please, please give me a call and let me know if this man shows up.
Maitre d': I'll do my best, miss.
Kendall: Thank you.
[amc030723b-inc starts]
Michael: Did you ever look this hard for me? You know, I used to be your knight in shining armor. Remember the falling snow in Aspen? Our first magical kiss?
Kendall: Get out of my face, Michael.
Michael: And now you threaten me with letter openers, break vases over my head, and invent charges to send me to prison.
Kendall: Yeah, well, maybe there you'll learn what it feels like to deal with perverts.
Michael: It's personal with you, isn't it? The fine line between love, hate.
Kendall: No, it's all hate. 100% hate.
Jack: Michael, Michael, Michael. We really do need to have a talk.

***** (clip c) [Lena tries to visit Bianca at the Penthouse]

[amc030723c starts]
Erica: Hi!
Bianca: Oh, hi.
Opal: Hey there, honey. How would you like a nice, relaxing manicure?
Bianca: Oh, Opal, I'm already relaxed, despite all of the security.
Erica: I know, honey. Of course you are. But they're going to be gone, you know, very, very soon.
Opal: Jack is just being protective, that's all.
Erica: Oh, and I love Jack for being so protective. But, honey, Michael can't hurt me again, really. No need for you to worry. Very soon he's going to be a distant memory.
Bianca: Mom, I just want you to enjoy your wedding day.
Erica: And I'm going to, honey. I mean, as long as you are happy and well, then I can't ask for anything more.
Bianca: You know, I think I'm going to make myself a sandwich. Do you guys want something?
Erica: Oh, sure. What a good idea. Ok, we'll have an early lunch before the rehearsal.
Opal: Great idea. "I'm going to make myself a sandwich." Those have got to be some of the most beautiful words in the English language.
Erica: Oh, you're not kidding.
Opal: Now, just let me get this top coat on, all right?
[Intercom buzzes]
Erica: Oh, I'm sorry.
Opal: Oh, lord.
Erica: I'll be right back. Yes?
Man: Miss Kane, there's a woman on her way up.
Erica: What? Who?
Man: Um, she's not on the list. A Lena Kundera.
Erica: All right, just -- I'll handle her.
[Lena knocks on the door. Erica answers]
Erica: All right, Lena. What are you doing here?
Lena: I'd like to see Bianca.
Erica: Not possible.
Lena: Why not? Myrtle told me she's here.
Erica: Wrong.
Lena: Look, I'm not leaving. I want to see Bianca, and I know she wants to see me.
Erica: No, wrong again. Bianca never wants to see you again. She told me so herself.

***** (clip d) [Erica offers Lena $3 million to leave Bianca alone]

[amc030723d starts]
Lena: I'm not going anywhere until I see Bianca.
Erica: You came up here without permission. You are trespassing.
Lena: What are you going to do, have me arrested? Fine. In the meantime, I'll go from room to room looking for her.
Erica: You have no business here. You do not belong here. Now, whatever relationship you think you have with Bianca, she does not want to have anything to do with you.
Lena: You're lying.
Opal: You know, maybe you ought to just hit the road. We're getting ready for a wedding here, and --
Lena: That's really of no concern to me.
Opal: Yeah, well, I guess good manners aren't, either. Now, do you want to retrace your steps or am I going to have to do it for you?
Lena: Look, I'm sorry, I know how I must sound. But to be honest with you, I'm worried sick. Last time I saw Bianca, we were making plans. We were happy. And then next thing I know, she's running away from Myrtle's and I can't get any answers.
Opal: And you haven't talked to her since then?
Lena: No, she won't return my phone calls. I don't know why. If what Erica says is true, I think I should hear it from Bianca.
Erica: Opal, would you please leave us alone for a moment? You could go into the kitchen. You could put the TV on.
Opal: Oh. Uh, yeah.
Erica: Well, you're very good. I could see you almost had Opal convinced that you were telling the truth.
Lena: I was telling her the truth.
Erica: You're not going away, are you?
Lena: Not until I speak to Bianca.
Erica: Listen to me. The only thing I care about in the world is Bianca's happiness. So I guess that I'm going to have to guarantee yours, too.
Lena: What's that mean?
Erica: If you stop seeing Bianca for good, I will pay you $3 million.
Lena: $3 million?
Erica: All right, not high enough. Ok, I can go a little higher but I'm warning you, don't get greedy.

***** (clip e) [Michael calls Pine valley incestuous (no Lena)]

[amc030723e starts]
Michael: There's no problem here, Mr. Montgomery. I was just making small talk with your stepdaughter-to-be. I'm sorry. This town can be so incestuous.
Jack: Why don't we go and have a seat. There's something I'd like to tell you, and if you're smart you'll listen.
Michael: Oh, well, if this is about that frivolous lawsuit that you're prosecuting, I think you should talk to my lawyer.
Jack: You don't really want this to go to trial, Michael. Now, the deal I've offered you is more than fair.
Michael: Uh-huh. 10 years, minimum security.
Jack: We started at 25 years.
Michael: Yeah, we did, which tells me that your case is falling apart. So you know what, I'd rather see this through and hand you a very humiliating and public defeat.
Jack: But you won't. I'll win, and I guarantee you'll see prison time. Now, you think about it because this deal won't stay on the table very long.
Michael: Mm-hmm. So why are you offering it to me, then?
Jack: Why?
Michael: Mm-hmm.
Jack: To get rid of you as quickly as I can, of course.
Michael: Oh, so you and your harem can live happily ever after? Well, you know what, there's an even quicker way to get rid of me, Jack. If you drop the charges, I promise you you will never see me again.
Kendall: No. No, Jack, you can't do that. Michael belongs in prison.

***** (clip f) [Michael tries to get Jack to drop his charges (no Lena)]

[amc030723f starts]
Kendall: Thank you.
Michael: Well, here's how I see it, Jack. You could drop the charges and save the taxpayers a lot of money and yourself even more humiliation.
Jack: You think I'm afraid to prosecute a case because I might lose?
Michael: This case is different, isn't it?
Jack: How's that?
Michael: We'll you're about to become Mr. Erica Kane. Soon the whole country is going to realize that she's pulling the strings and that you're prosecuting a case that should've died long before it hit the docket.
Jack: Michael, you're so deluded. You know, it's hard to believe that you're related to Alex Cambias in any way. You know, I once saw your father get up and walk out on a congressional investigation, just get up and walk about like he was some kind of slighted saint. But you -- you can't even have an off-the-record conversation without sinking yourself further in the slime.
Michael: Be smart, Jack. Now, either I can be on the first plane home, or you can keep me here. And if I do stay in Pine Valley, I will take away everything that matters to you and everything that you claim to love.

***** (clip g) [Lena refuses the money]

[amc030723g starts]
Lena: Just tell me one thing. Has it ever worked for you, paying off Bianca's girlfriends? Has it ever actually bought her an ounce of happiness?
Erica: You are not her girlfriend. You have never been her girlfriend. You are a con artist. You jumped from Michael Cambias' bed to Bianca to seduce her, lie to her, to betray her. So, please, don't act like you are insulted over $3 million because you've been traded for considerably less.
Lena: I know she's here. What if I call out her name?
Erica: Ok, I'm withdrawing my offer, and you will leave under your own power. Now. Fine.
Lena: Erica --
Man: Security.
Erica: Yes, I want you up here now. I need you, please. I need you to escort someone from the premises.
Man: Yes, ma'am.
Lena: Erica, please. Look, I know you're just as scared about Bianca as I am. You don't know what happened to her and you're blaming me and I'm blaming you, but really we should find out why she ran away.
Erica: Yes, I am blaming you. I lived through Bianca's illness with her. She wouldn't eat. She almost died. And now those feelings, those exact feelings are coming back because of you.
Lena: No, that's not making any sense.
Erica: Of course it makes sense. Here's the good sense in that. You got her to fall in love with you and then you lied to her, you betrayed her, you cheated her, and you stole from her.
Lena: Erica, she forgave me, I swear to you.
Erica: You have made my daughter sick again and you will not get out of her life?
Lena: Erica, I love Bianca. I would never hurt her.
Erica: Please, get her out of here. Get her out of here now.
Lena: Bianca! Bianca!
Erica: Get her out!
Guard: Come on.
Erica: She's never to come back here again. She is not a friend, she is not a family member -- none of those.
Bianca: Oh, my god! Lena!
Erica: Bianca --
Bianca: Let go of her. Let go of her now!

Bianca: Mom, tell them to let her go.
Erica: All right, all right. Yes.
Bianca: All right, tell them to leave, please.
Erica: All right, you can go.
Erica: Bianca, I did not mean to upset you, honey.
Bianca: I know. I know you didn't.
Lena: Your mother seems to have the wrong impression. I told her we postponed our trip to Prague because of the wedding, but she seems to think we've broken up. I told her she was wrong, but -- Bianca?
Bianca: Mom, can we have some privacy, please?
Erica: Honey --
Opal: Yeah, come on. We got to get that manicure finished before the wedding rehearsal anyway. Let's go.
Bianca: Please, sit down.
Lena: No, look, I can't sit down. Your mother just said that you don't want to be with me? That's what you told her, that I'm not your girlfriend? Oh, come on. Tell me it's not true.
Bianca: I can't do that.

***** (clip i) [Michael calls Pine Valley a town of "needy women and their lap-dog men" (no Lena)]

[amc030723i starts]
Jack: Threatening the district attorney's family -- boy, you can't be that stupid, now, can you?
Michael: Come on, Jack. I'm not threatening anybody. I'm merely playing the character that Erica and Kendall created for me. Jack, I wouldn't hurt any of your women. You can ask Bianca.
[Kendall looks suspicious]
Jack: You know what, let's wrap this up. Am I to understand you rejected the offer that I've made?
Michael: Well, Jack, my only threats, my only designs were made against Fusion and Enchantment. That's all I was ever talking about. But I am willing to forget that. Jack, I don't want your deal. Drop the charges and I'm out of here. Besides, I'm sick of this town, its needy women and their lap-dog men. Let's just end this right now, shall we?
Jack: You just have. So you call Marvin Shaw and you tell him you rejected my deal and I'll see him in court, all right? You realize, Cambias, you just traded a cushy country club cell for some serious hard time.
Michael: Well, I wouldn't count on that. The Cambias family is pretty powerful.
Jack: Yeah, they are. But your father has washed his hands of you, now, hasn't he? You know what that means? You're going to have to find your way through this all by yourself, and it comes down to just you and me, so --
Michael: Uh-huh.
Jack: Mm-hmm.
Michael: This could've been so easy, Jack.
Jack: Oh, it will be. You're going to be behind bars before long. In the meantime, you keep your distance from my family. You understand me, son?
Michael: Well, you can't exactly watch them every minute, now, can you?
Jack: No, but I can watch you every second. Listen, it's very inappropriate for us to be speaking this way, so why don't you take it on the shoe leather. Just don't think about leaving town, huh?
Michael: Fine. I'll stay. Have a good one. Oh -- and, Jack, lock up your sisters and your wives, huh? [Michael laughs]
Kendall: He's a pig. Jack, he scares the living h*** out of me. Michael -- he deserves -- he deserves to be behind bars.
Jack: Yes, he does, so why are you doing your best to make sure he gets acquitted, Kendall?

Kendall: Excuse me, I have done more than anyone to make sure that Michael is put behind bars.
Jack: Kendall, please don't make another scene.
Kendall: What scene did I make?
Jack: The scene you made with Michael in the lobby.
Kendall: Yeah, well, he provoked me.
Jack: Yes, he provoked you and he's trying to discredit you and he's trying to make sure that the charges that you and your mother brought against him will never see the light of day, they'll be thrown out of court.
Kendall: I'm sorry, I can't help it. The man just makes me so angry.
Jack: Well, don't play into his hands, Kendall.
Kendall: I'm not going to let him get off, Jack. The man is a sexual predator. Ok, and it's gotten worse. I can see it in his eyes. It's like he knows that he can get away with it now.
Jack: Yes, he's overconfident. And that means very soon now he's going to stub his toe and he's going to fall, and I'm going to be there to catch him and put him behind bars where he can never hurt another woman again.
Kendall: Ok, good. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Did I -- did I mess up your case?
Jack: I don't know. Look, just realize when he gets into court, what he's going to try to prove is that there's some kind of a -- a vendetta against him.
Kendall: I hate him. I hate him so much. You know, Erica says that she doesn't blame me for bringing Michael back to town, but the fact is I did.
Jack: I know that Erica realizes that he played you. He used you.
Kendall: Well, so you realize that?
Jack: I tell you what I realize. You and your mother are trying to work things out. And very soon now, we're all going to be part of a strange, convoluted family and as far as I'm concerned, we should all be working together.
Kendall: Well, that's -- that's what I'm trying to do.
Jack: Good.
Kendall: But I'm just -- I'm not counting on anything changing.
Jack: Well, you can count on me just as long as you do the right thing, Kendall.
Kendall: I appreciate that. And I'm -- I'm trying to do right by Bianca. I just wish I knew what that was.
Jack: Don't you think she's just going through a tough time because of Lena?
Kendall: I don't know, I don't know. I feel like it's something more than Lena. I don't know who or what, but something has Binky pretty rattled.

Michael: Oh -- father. Hi. Is this -- is this a good time?
Alexander: As it happens, I'm a captive audience.
Michael: Yeah. Well, listen, I hate to complain, but Marvin is doing an abysmal job for me.
Alexander: I'd say Marvin more than earned his retainer by having them grant you bail.
Michael: Yeah, well, he hasn't made Jackson Montgomery drop the charges, and they're bogus. I'm being persecuted because they hate me.
Alexander: Stop whining. It grates on my ear.
Michael: Look, father, I really need you to take charge of this. If you could just come to town in person and make this all go away --
Alexander: I have no intention of getting mixed up in another one of your messes. As far as I'm concerned, you're d*** lucky they're only going after you for white-collar crimes.
Michael: Well, what is that supposed to mean?
Alexander: I'm talking about the two women in Pine Valley who are alleging you tried to rape them.
Michael: Oh, my god, father! They are lying!
Alexander: Yeah, like that woman in Milan was lying?
Michael: Yes! Women lie. That's what they do. I would never force myself on any woman.
Alexander: Michael, I wish I could believe you, but I know better. Just how many women do you intend to abuse before you get caught?

Bianca: I can't see you anymore.
Lena: Why?
Bianca: Because that's what I want.
Lena: No, it's not. No, I don't believe that. I felt bad before about blaming your mother, but I was right, wasn't I? She got her way.
Bianca: No, this has nothing to do with my mother.
Lena: I don't believe that, Bianca. She's been working on this for months. And I didn't think you were listening to her, but what changed? I mean, come on, are you going to break up with me just to be a good daughter, or has Erica finally persuaded you that I am a common criminal and a cheat?
Bianca: No, Lena, I don't think that of you. I think that you're -- I don't think badly of you, ok? I -- I just don't want a relationship right now, not with anyone.
Lena: But why not? What -- what happened? What did I do?
Bianca: Nothing. You didn't do anything wrong, ok? It just -- it didn't work out. Lena, you don't need me to be happy. You can find someone --
Lena: Stop it! Don't tell me who I need to be happy. I need you, ok? We settled that. Bianca, why are you lying to me?
Bianca: I'm not.
Lena: Yes, you are. Look, something happened, something really big, and you're just not telling me.
Bianca: No, ok? God, please don't make this so hard on me.
Lena: It can only be your mother. I mean, she -- she's the one who's been working on you, who's been trying to make you feel guilty.
Bianca: It's not my mother. It's not.
Lena: She's the only one you've been speaking to. She's the only one who has that kind of power over you.
Bianca: You're wrong, Lena! You're very wrong.
Lena: Look, you love me. Now, you can tell me to go away a million times, but I don't believe that you don't love me. What is it, Bianca? I mean, if it's not your mother, is it me? Is it something I did? Just tell me. I won't do it again. Is it someone else? Let me know. We can fix that. Just -- god, tell me what it is. Bianca, don't make me leave. We can get through anything together. Anything.

***** (clip m) [Kendall tells her suspicions to Jack about Bianca (Lena mention)]

[amc030723m-inc starts]
Jack: Kendall, hang on just a second, please. Will you have a seat for just a moment?
Kendall: Sure.
Jack: Thanks. Now, do you really think that Bianca's heart can't be broken as easily as yours has been?
Kendall: Did I say anything like that?
Jack: No, but you have to realize that Bianca and Lena have had to overcome a lot of obstacles, obstacles that you and I will never have to deal with.
Kendall: Is this a fatherly lecture on alternative love?
Jack: Yeah. If you want to see it that way, that's exactly what it is.
Kendall: Fine, that's great, but I want to tell you -- I looked in Bianca's eyes, and I saw just how much she was hurting over Lena. So much that I went and I got Aidan and I took him to the Cayman Islands just to prove that Lena hadn't betrayed Bianca one more time.
Jack: I'm aware of that.
Kendall: So what I'm saying is, yes, I can see that Bianca would be hurt if Lena dumped her or double-crossed her. But that's not what I think is going on with Bianca.
Jack: In which case, I apologize. I misunderstood.
Kendall: Fine. But if you're trying to get closer to your two new stepdaughters, then maybe the one you should start with is Bianca.
Jack: Ok. Point taken.
Kendall: Good, and when you talk to her, you should start by asking her why she was burning her clothes in a park all alone one night.
Jack: Burning her clothes?
Kendall: Yes, in a garbage can, at a park, all alone. It completely freaked me out.
[Phone rings]
Jack: Excuse me. Yeah, hang on just one second. I'm going to have to take this.
Kendall: Sure. Go ahead.
[amc030723m-inc ends]
Jack: But, listen, I really do want to pick up where we left off later, ok?
Kendall: Of course. We are going to be family now, so --
Jack: That's right. Thank you.
Kendall: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, it's him.
Jack: Thanks for getting back to me. I need you to do something for me, and I need it done fast.

***** (clip n) [Lena refuses to accept the break-up]

[amc030723n starts]
Lena: Come on. Nothing you can tell me would be worse than never seeing you again.
Bianca: It's nothing that you did, Lena, and it's not my mother. Please don't make me say, "it's me, I'm just not good enough for you."
Lena: Oh, please. That's just ridiculous and you know it.
Bianca: Yeah, I know, but you want me to say something and I have nothing that I can say. You just have to accept that it's over.
Lena: I don't accept it. I'll never accept it. Do you really want to do this? You'd rather send me away than let me know what happened?
Bianca: Yeah, that's right. I want you to go away.
Lena: Ok. It won't do you any good. I'll find out why you're doing this. Whatever it is, I'll know.
Bianca: No, just -- look, you're going to be much better off if you just move on, find somebody else --
Lena: Oh, stop it. Bianca, I don't want anybody else. I love you. I've never loved anyone. When you loved me back, I -- I couldn't believe my luck. So I can't just let you go. If you think I can, then you're just beginning to know me.
Bianca: Goodbye, Lena.
Lena: No. This is far from goodbye.
[Lena leaves; Bianca starts to break down but Erica shows up]
Bianca: Hey! Are you all done? Can I see?
Erica: Sure.
Bianca: Oh, wow. Gosh. Beautiful. That's one of ours, isn't it?
Erica: It's one of yours.
Opal: Yeah, it's making us a mint of money.
Erica: Absolutely. You ok, honey?
Bianca: Oh, my goodness -- the sandwiches! We finished them. Do we still have time?
Erica: Do you want to have lunch?
Bianca: Of course. Yeah, I want to be good and strong for your big day tomorrow. I want it to be the most perfect day for you, mom.
Erica: Oh. Ok.
Bianca: Getting hungry.
Erica: Oh, good.
Bianca: What kind did they make?
