Lena arrives and Bianca agrees to speak with her in private. Lena makes a pitch for her and Bianca to get back together and presents Bianca with two silver, braided rings as a symbol of love and trust between them. Bianca is moved by Lena's gesture but ends up pushing her away and leaving with Maggie. Maggie and Bianca go to a roadside bar as Maggie tries to draw Bianca out. Bianca begins to spiral out of control as she drinks at the bar and Maggie is unable to stop her. Bianca becomes hysterical when a man touches her and grabs a pool cue, brandishing it as a weapon while declaring that no one will hurt her.

Lena showed Bianca a jewelerís box containing two rings to show her commitment is real.

Previously on All My Children
Greenlee got a Mumbled voice-over letter.
Erica anvilled about how she and Jack are soon to be married.
Lena refused to accept being dumped by Bianca.
Aidan was a thorn in *ssholeísÖ er, *ssÖ hole? (ew)
Mary left her faux letter where Greenlee would find it...

Jack continues on with his speeching as Lena walks loudly into the rehearsal room. I find it unbelievable that no one either saw or heard that. Lena just stands there and stares. A ringing phone in the lobby prompts them all to look in Lenaís direction. They heard that and not the loud rattling that Lena did with the doors? Erica quickly wraps up the rehearsal and heads for Lena with Bianca in tow. Lena promises to leave but she wants to talk to Bianca first. Erica protests this until Bianca pipes up and concedes to speak to Lena.

In the lobby now, Lena is all happy that Bianca is giving her the time of day. Oh Lena. Where art thou spine? Lena is sorry that Biancaís mistrust in her forced her to break them up. She presents what she hopes will show how much Bianca can trust her. Rings. I guess itís some sort of lesbian promise ring thing. I have no idea.

Erica goes whining to Jack about Lena. She wants a restraining order. Gee, thereís a novel idea. How Ďbout getting one on *sshole? If you had, you could have had his *ss thrown back in jail several times by now. Jack explains that he canít get one of those on Lena. No grounds. Erica pouts about marrying a man whoís so honest, he wonít even take the law into his own hands...

Which segues us into just such a situation. Sleeveless *sshole is hunting and pecking on his laptop when three masked marauders break in, wrestle him down and tie him up. Um, wow, that was kind ofÖ hot. Sorta like a PG-rated episode of Oz...

Lena places a ring in Biancaís hand. Binks is rather speechless. Lena doesnít expect Bianca to jump on the promise ring bandwagon or anything. She explains that sheíll wear her ring and Bianca can do whatever she wants with hers. Bianca is choked up but finally manages to pull herself together and refuse the ring. Maggie shows up to catch the *ss end of Breakup 2: Electric Boogaloo. She jumps to the rescue and tells Lena to step off and quit bugging Bianca. Erica shows up to try and coax Bianca to the rehearsal dinner but sheíd rather hang out with Maggie.

Maggie. It wouldnít be a scene for her if she werenít blinding me, would it? Okay, to get this out of the way, sheís wearing a shirt thatís tie-dyed red, that beige cutoff skirt seems to be making a reappearance, accompanied by a lime green tie-on belt. Oh, and her hair is suddenly much browner...

Bianca is mainlining diet coke and vodkas. Maggie worrywarts to her while Bianca drunkenly waves away her concerns. Bianca wants to dance and starts cutting a rug right there in the middle of a bar. The skuzzy guys (one of whom is the Neanderthal that Mia poured beer on) all get worked up over this. They must be drunk because while I love Bianca to death, where her dancing is concerned? She is so white. The whitest. Bianca has moved her routine up onto the pool table. Now this is where the bartender should throw her *ss out because they donít tolerate drunks f****** up the felt on their tables. Having those things re-covered ainít cheap.

PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Greenlee finally found Mary's letter to Jack.
Greenlee: Oh look, a letter addressed to Jack Montgomery. I'll just open it and see what it says. This could set up my storyline for the next few months.
Juan Pablo: There is no time for you to read a letter that will change your life.It is too early in the episode for that. You must come dancing with me instead.
Greenlee: I can't go right now. I have work to do.
Juan Pablo: Then I must leave and never return. Greenlee: Wait, you disappear on me without even saying goodbye, then you pop back in and expect me to drop everything and go out with you?
Juan Pablo: But of course. It is the way things are done in my country.
Greenlee: OK, but just for the sake of diplomatic relations. First let me stick this letter in my purse. It may come in handy for dramatic purposes later.

In the Valley Inn lobby Michael was torn limb from limb by a pack of rabid wolves.
Michael: Hey, that didn't happen.
Lizzie: Not yet.
Aidan: Don't worry Lizzie. Oi'll tike care of the rotter. E won't be bothering anyone for a whoil.

Michael was attacked in his condo.
Attacker 1: I'll tie him up.
ttacker 2: I'll blindfold him.
Attacker 3: Oi'll put a gag in is mouth.
Michael: I'll get you for this Devane. mmmfffffff
Aidan: Blimey. I wonder ow e knew it was me. Let's dump im in the trash bin.
Rats: Ewwww! It's Michael. We protest! This is our home you know.
Cockroaches: Yuck! We don't want to have the likes of him in our humble abode.
Maggots: This is the most disgusting thing that's ever happened in our trash bin.

Mary decided to take matters into her own hands.
Mary: Let's see. Here's Greenlee's birth certificate. Hmmm, date of birth "exactly 9 months after the mother boinked Jack Montgomery". If this doesn't work I don't know what will. Oh waiter. bring me some wrapping paper and a vodka martini. I have a wedding present to prepare.

It was time for Erica and Jack's wedding rehearsal.
Jack: Before the rehearsal starts I'd like to toast my new family. Bianca, I've always thought of you as my own child - probably because I've been boinking your mother since you were a toddler.
Bianca: :::sniff sniff::::Thank you Uncle Jack.
Jack: Kendall, if Erica can accept you so can I. After all, if you really love someone you will accept all of their children no matter what.
Erica: :::choke::::
Jack: Anyway, I always wanted another daughter.
Erica: ::::Hisss::::Maybe you could find one in FRANCE.
Jack: Huh?
Erica: Sorry, I just got you confused with someone else for a minute.
Minister: All right. It's time to rehearse the wedding. You both stand in front of me. Erica Kane, Martin, Brent, Cudahy, Chandler, Roy, Montgomery....
Jack: I think you should leave out Roy. Their marriage wasn't legal.
Minister: Marrick....
Erica: You left out a Montgomery and a Chandler.
Jack: And a couple of Marricks.
Minister: Maybe I should just call you Ms. Kane.
Erica: That might be wise.
Minister: Now do you want to rehearse your vows?
Erica: I just want to say that I've never been happier in my life and I know that nothing on earth could happen to spoil this. No deep dark secrets or unwanted children or old girlfriends with hidden agendas or anything. No sir, no interrupted wedding for us.
Minister: Interesting. What about you Jack?
Jack: I just think we've come so far to get here. There was the affair we had when you were married to my brother, then the affair we had while I was married to Laurel, then there was the affair we had while you were engaged to Chris - all of that leading up to this moment.
Minister: Go my son. Say 1000 Hail Marys. Sin no more and avoid the near occasion of sin.
Jack: Huh?
Minister: Sorry. I got mixed up for a minute. I thought this was confession.

Bianca and Maggie went out on the town.
Maggie: This is a really sleazy bar. Some of these people look pretty rough.
Bianca: Didn't you and Henry ever go to any sleazy bars with rough characters?
Maggie: Yes but Henry usually played his guitar and everyone ran screaming for the exits.
Bianca: I can picture that. Now if you'll excuse me I have to follow in the tradition of Allie Doyle and That Kit Fisher Person.
Maggie: Huh?
Bianca: I have to get drunk and dance badly to show the depths of my despair.
Maggie: :::sigh:::::Some things never change around this town.

Greenlee and Juan Pablo went to SOS.
Juan Pablo: We must dance. I will ask the DJ to play our song.
Greenlee: The Chicken Dance?
Juan Pablo: Of course. In my country the chicken is known as the bird of love.
Greenlee: Can't we tango instead? It's much sexier.
Juan Pablo: If you insist. But I want to be the one with the rose between my teeth.
Greenlee: That dance was hot. But now if you'll excuse me I see Jack over there.
Jack: What is it Greenlee?
Greenlee: I have a letter for you. It's from my mother, your demented stalker. It holds the key to both of our future storylines.
Jack: Should I open it?
Greenlee: Not now. Friday cliffhanger you know.



QUOTES

Michael: Oh, Bianca, don't I at least rate a hello? Oh, that's ok, I think I understand. I still get to you. You told me that I was in your head, that you couldn't get rid of me. Obviously, our night together meant a lot to you. As it did to me, of course. Look, Bianca, no scenes, ok? God, you are just so incredibly hot.

Michael: You know what I want to do to you? I want to take you upstairs and put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign. Come on. Another night, I promise.

Jack: Well, aren't we the pair, slapping each other on the back so proud. We had Michael Cambias right where we wanted him, and now he's gone.

Jack: Aidan, what are you planning to do?
Aidan: The less you know, the better off you'll be.
Tad: I'll see you at the bachelor party.

Kendall: If it makes you feel any better, we can fight over turkey legs at Thanksgiving.

Reggie: Erica, you got enough miles on the aisle. You should be able to find your way by yourself.

Jack: We've come down a long road to get to this place. And I must say that this amazing lady and I have hit every pothole along the way, maybe some more than once.

Reggie: Are you kidding? She has more wedding runs than Barry Bonds has home runs.

Lena: Bianca, I want these rings to be a symbol of the trust between us. I want to show you that my commitment to you is real -- as real and as undying as the one shared between your mother and your Uncle Jack.

Erica: Bianca rejected Lena.
Jack: Rejection, rejection -- hmm. Where have I heard that one before? Honey, if I had taken 1/10 of your rejections to heart, would we be getting married tomorrow? Huh? Huh?

Boyd: So how long do we leave the scumbag inside that dumpster?

Lena: I don't want any promises, and I don't even expect you to keep your ring if you don't want to. See, Iíll wear mine as a symbol of my love for you, and if you like, Iíll hold on to yours until you're ready.

Bianca: No, there's no more chances, ok? It's not going to happen. We're never going to be together again.

Maggie: I think Bianca said that you're done.
Lena: I'm sorry, you're not her girlfriend.
Maggie: And neither are you, looks like.

Bianca: Hello, best friend Maggie, I do remember, and I brought you here to get away from Lena and my mother, so please don't morph into them, ok?

Kendall: What the hell are you doing?
Michael: I was just telling your sister how ravishing she looks.
Kendall: Why don't you get the hell away from us now.
Michael: Yeah, ok.
Kendall: What did he say to you?
Bianca: Nothing, Kendall.
Kendall: Was he harassing you?
Bianca: Nothing, Kendall. Just forget it, ok? He was passing by. It was no big deal.
Kendall: Oh.
Jack: Ladies, there you are. Listen, we're about t minus two minutes away from the rehearsal, and your mother's in the first stages of a meltdown, so --
Kendall: Yeah, well, she's not the only one.
Jack: Why? What? What? Did something happen?
Bianca: No, nothing happened.
Kendall: Michael Cambias was here, and he was in Biancaís face.
Jack: What, are you kidding me? Are you all right?
Bianca: I'm fine.
Aidan: What did he want?
Bianca: I have no clue.
Jack: Well, did he -- did he threaten you or anything?
Bianca: No -- God, please. Uncle Jack, nothing happened, ok? This is just Kendallís way of stirring up more trouble.
Aidan: Where did Cambias go, Bianca?
Kendall: Well, he left the hotel, but he could be anywhere.
Jack: Look, he didn't do anything, say anything that was out of line?
Bianca: No.
Kendall: He must've done something because she was three shades of pale when I got here.
Bianca: Shut up, Kendall! Look, I mean it. Everything is just fine.
Jack: Ok. Ok.
Bianca: Ok.
Jack: Look, your mother's in there in the dining room. She's waiting to get this rehearsal started. Why don't you go in there and join her, ok?
Bianca: Oh, are you coming?
Jack: Well, of course. I'll be there in just a second, ok?
Bianca: Ok.
[Bianca leaves]
Jack: All right, go on in, honey. Thanks.
Kendall: Jack, there's something more to this story, I know there is.
Jack: All right, Kendall, thank you, but just let me handle this, ok?
Kendall: Ok.
Jack: Thanks. So? Anything?
Aidan: No, he's gone.
Jack: Well, aren't we the pair, slapping each other on the back so proud. We had Michael Cambias right where we wanted him, and now he's gone.
Aidan: Why did Bianca cover for him?
Jack: I don't have any idea, Aidan. Maybe she just didn't want to cause upset the night before the wedding, I don't know.
Aidan: Do you think Cambias is planning to trash your ceremony?
Jack: I wouldn't put anything past him. Would you?
Aidan: No, you're right. He's a cocky b******, I'll give him that.
Jack: And it seems the more you get in his face, the bolder he gets.
Aidan: Well, we're just going to have to take it to the next level, aren't we?
Jack: What do you have in mind?
Aidan: I'll fill you in on a need-to-know basis.

[amc030725d starts]
Tad: So, you're finally going to make it down the aisle. Congratulations.
Jack: Yeah, thanks, thanks.
Tad: You want to try that again with feeling, there, pal?
Jack: I'm sorry, Tad. Thank you, thank you very much. I do appreciate it. I'm just a little frustrated now.
Tad: Oh, Erica can do that to a guy, I guess.
Aidan: No, it's not Erica. It's Michael Cambias.
Tad: Again? What'd he do this time?
Aidan: I'll fill you in on the way, Tad.
Tad: Where are we going?
Jack: Aidan, what are you planning to do?
Aidan: The less you know, the better off you'll be.
Tad: I'll see you at the bachelor party.

***** (clip e) [Jack tries to comfort Bianca and Reggie & Kendall bond (no Lena)]

[amc030725e starts]
Jack: Yeah, just go ahead and put that down there, that'd be great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. Bianca, sweetheart, are you all right?
Bianca: Yes. God, I will be as soon as everybody stops asking me that.
Jack: Ok.
Bianca: Look, Uncle Jack, I am just happy for you and Mom, and I don't want you to let anything get in the way of that, ok?
Jack: Ok.
Bianca: Promise me?
Jack: I do.
Bianca: Ok.
Jack: Ok.
Bianca: Ok.
Reggie: So, K, you got plans to beat me up?
Kendall: What?
Reggie: Pound your little brother into the ground when nobody's looking?
Kendall: Reggie, why would I do that?
Reggie: Because I dimmed your brother out and sent him to prison.
Kendall: Look, Reggie, if Erica can give me a second chance, I can do the same for you.
Reggie: Hmm. That's pretty big.
Kendall: Yeah, well, if it makes you feel any better, we can fight over turkey legs at Thanksgiving.

***** (clip f) [Erica finds out Palmer will not be able to make the wedding (no Lena)]

[amc030725f starts]
Erica: Oh, Opal, I have such bad news.
Opal: What's that?
Jack: Honey, who was that on the phone?
Erica: Palmer.
Opal: Oh, well, that is bad news.
Kendall: Well, what's the problem?
Erica: He had to fly to Chicago. Nina is having some diabetes-related medical problems, and --
Jack: Oh.
Erica: So he won't be able to be here to walk me down the aisle.
Kendall: Oh, Erica, I'm sorry. I know you were really counting on him.
Reggie: Well, Erica, you got enough miles on the aisle. You should be able to find your way by yourself.
Erica: Actually, that's true, Reggie. And you know something else? What do you call this man here, J. Mo?
Jack: Oh, don't start that, please.
Erica: Yeah, well, with J. Mo waiting for me at the end of the aisle, no way that I'm going to make a wrong turn.
Opal: Yeah, well, speaking of wrong turns, I'm beginning to wonder if Reverend Ritter didn't take one in getting here. I can't find him anywhere.
Jack: Oh, I don't know about anybody else, but I'm glad the right Reverend Ritter's a little bit late because it gives me an opportunity to spend a little time with my new family-to-be.
Erica: Oh. I'm sorry Lily can't be here.
Opal: Yeah, well, chickenpox, you know, is nothing we want to be passing around.
Jack: Well, no. I talked to her, and she's feeling much better. And she said just make sure we take a lot of photographs, so that we're going to do. And I say we start with a toast. What do you say, huh?
Kendall: Yes, let's.
Opal: All righty.
Jack: Here you go, son of mine.
Kendall: Thank you.
Reggie: Yes, that's mine.
Kendall: Ooh, sorry.
Reggie: My first taste of the bubble.
Kendall: Excuse me, don't get all excited. It's just sparkling cider.
Opal: Here, why don't you have one of these.
Bianca: Oh, thanks, Opal.
Jack: Opal, for yourself.
Opal: Thank you, sir.
Jack: For my bride-to-be.
Opal: All right.
Erica: Thank you.
Jack: And for himself. Well, we've come down a long road to get to this place. And I must say that this amazing lady and I have hit every pothole along the way, maybe some more than once. At any rate, the most important thing is we've made it, and we're a family now. So from now on, anytime life throws something at us and trips us up and we're ready to fall, all we have to do is look around because these are the people who will be there to catch us, without question and without fail. So, here's to us. Here's to family.
All: Cheers! Cheers! Cheers!
Erica: Oh! Cheers!
Opal: Yes.
Erica: Well, of course Jack speaks for me, as well. Reggie, it's an honor to welcome you to our family. You've already proven you're a very loyal man.
Jack: Oh, hear, hear, hear, hear.
Opal: Hear, hear.
Jack: Bianca, stand up here. Leave those birdseed things alone for a minute, will you? Mmm. You know that I've always thought of you as a daughter, right? I love you so much.
Bianca: Oh -- Uncle Jack, I love you.
Jack: And, Kendall, as for you --
Kendall: Jack, it's ok. You don't -- you don't have to say anything.
Jack: Well, I don't have much to say except this -- welcome to the family. It's like I told you before, if you and Erica can let bygones be bygones, then I wish you nothing but the best. Besides, Iíve got room in my heart for another daughter. Come here.
Kendall: Thank you, thank you.

Rev. Ritter: Ahem. Ok.
Opal: Oh, goodness, he's here.
Rev. Ritter: Well, we've just heard "Here comes the bride, do-do-do-do --"
Opal: Yeah, that's "The Wedding March."
[Jack laughs]
Rev. Ritter: Right. Now I --
Erica: "Now who gives this woman in marriage?" But we are working on that.
Rev. Ritter: All right, then. Ms. Kane, you'll stand on my left, and --
Erica: Actually, it's the other way around. I stand here with my maid of honor to my left, and then, Reggie, you stand next to Jack, right there on his right, and, Kendall, Kendall, come up here -- and you stand right on the other side of Bianca.
Rev. Ritter: Oh, right, you've done this before.
Reggie: Are you kidding? She has more wedding runs than Barry Bonds has home runs.
Rev. Ritter: Ok. Well, "If -- if no one objects to this man and woman -- do-do-do-do-do -- then --"
Erica: Oh, no one better.
Rev. Ritter: Then we do the ring thing, and "I pronounce you and man and wife."
Jack and Erica: "Husband and wife."
Rev. Ritter: Right, yeah.
Jack: Yeah. And then what about our vows?
Erica: Our sacred vows.
Jack: Right.
Erica: Jack, I just would feel better saving those for tomorrow.
Jack: Oh, so, ok, I only get one chance to publicly declare my love for you? All right, well, in that case, I'm going to take this opportunity to go on record to say I absolutely and positively adore you.
Erica: And those feelings are absolutely and positively mutual.
Jack: And may I just say Iím going to do everything I can to make sure that this wedding goes off without a hitch -- you should pardon the pun -- and that you say "I do" to no other man after me.
Reggie: Until the honeymoon, you know, I do.
Jack: I'm doing fine by myself here, Reg. And I just wanted you to know that I know how drastically my life is going to be changed, and that I am welcoming the challenge.
Erica: Jack, I'm not that difficult.
Jack: Sweetheart, I love you, but you are one of the most impossible, exasperating, and infuriating women to ever walk the face of the planet, and here's my great, good fortune -- to love you without limit and without regret. [amc030725 starts] [Lena enters the room] Look where we are. Did you ever think we would be here, huh? And d***, I -- oh, sorry, Reverend -- I just wish Mona could be here to see this.

[amc030725 starts] [Lena enters the room] Look where we are. Did you ever think we would be here, huh? And d***, I -- oh, sorry, Reverend -- I just wish Mona could be here to see this.
Erica: Oh, Jack. No one would be happier for us than my mother.
Jack: You know what? You are absolutely right, and do you know why? Because she knew -- she knows -- how much we had to fight to be here. And now that we're here, you know what we have to do? Fight to stay here, to fight to keep our love alive. Because when people are in love, that's what they do. They hold on to each other for all they're worth and they never, ever let go, no matter what.
[Phone rings]
[Everyone sees Lena]
Erica: Oh, Jack, if I start crying now, I'm just never, ever going to stop. Reverend Ritter, thank you so much, and we'll see you tomorrow.
Opal: Yeah, I'll -- I'll help you find the way out here, Reverend.
Jack: Thank you, Reverend, appreciate it. Thanks.
Opal: And we're just going to discuss this little --
Erica: Lena, how like you to crash a private family affair.
Lena: I'm sorry, Erica. Bianca, I'd like to speak to you.
Erica: Lena, this is my wedding rehearsal. That's not going to happen.
Lena: Please, will you see me alone?
Erica: No, she will not.
Bianca: You know, Mom, it's ok.
Erica: Bianca --
Bianca: I know. It's ok.
Lena: Thank you.
Erica: Ugh.
Bianca: No -- we can talk here.
Lena: Oh, yes, of course. Whatever you want. I'm so grateful you agreed to speak to me.
Bianca: Look, Lena, nothing has changed between us.
Lena: I know. And deep down, you know it, too. Look, Bianca, I'm afraid I know what's been disturbing you so deeply. It's me.
Bianca: Lena --
Lena: No, really, I've been trying to find reasons why you've cut me out of your life, and then I had to face the truth. You still don't feel like you can trust me. That's why you broke it off, and I don't blame you, after all the misery Iíve caused. I've tried to change my life around to make it feel safer for you, to make you feel like you can give yourself to me completely, but I can't help feeling that I haven't gone far enough. Until now. Uh --
[she gets out the rings]
Lena: Bianca, I want these rings to be a symbol of the trust between us. I want to show you that my commitment to you is real -- as real and as undying as the one shared between your mother and your Uncle Jack.

Erica: Jack -- Jack, you have to do something.
Jack: About what?
Erica: About Lena Kundera. She's out there right now. She is making Bianca miserable.
Jack: Honey, what do you want me to do about it? I mean, Bianca left with her of her own free will.
Erica: I want you to issue a restraining order.
Jack: On what grounds? Erica, I mean, it seems to me the only thing that Lena is guilty of is loving Bianca.
Erica: Are you kidding? That's not love.
Jack: Sweetheart, I know you've never been a big fan of Lenaís --
Erica: Of course I haven't been a big fan of Lenaís -- with good reason. She's a two-faced liar, she's a felon, and now she's actually trying to force herself on Bianca.
Jack: But the fact is before she and Bianca broke up, Bianca was really quite in love with her, and maybe she still is.
Erica: No. Ultimately, Bianca rejected Lena.
Jack: Rejection, rejection -- hmm. Where have I heard that one before? Honey, if I had taken 1/10 of your rejections to heart, would we be getting married tomorrow? Huh? Huh?
Erica: No, I -- no, I suppose not. But this is not the same thing. Jack, I really still think that a restraining order is what you have to do.
Jack: Honey, listen to me, we have no legal recourse whatsoever.
Erica: You could handle Lena Kundera if you wanted to.
Jack: And what is that supposed to mean?
Erica: That means that I just hope I don't live to regret marrying a man who is so honest that he refuses to take the law into his own hands.

[Michael yells, they put tape over his mouth, tie his hands, and dump him in a dumpster]
Boyd: That was very satisfying.
Aidan: Thanks for coming onboard.
Boyd: Hey, if it can help Kendall and Erica, you can always count me in.
Aidan: Tad? You all right, man?
Tad: Oh, talk about taking out the trash.
Aidan: Now Erica and Jackson can have a wedding without no hitches.
Boyd: So how long do we leave the scumbag inside that dumpster?
Aidan: Oh, I don't know -- until the last toast is drunk and the last person is gone. Then I suppose Iíll give Sanitation a call and complain about a nasty punk.
Boyd: So how long do we leave the scumbag inside that dumpster?
Tad: You realize we may want to do this again sometime.
Aidan: Absolutely.
Tad: All right.
Aidan: I'll give you a call the next full moon.
Tad: All right.
Aidan: You ready?
Tad: Yeah, come on.
Aidan: Come on.
Boyd: Hey, whoa, whoa, guys, hold on. Oh, Cambias has pulled enough crap. I just found out where the bodies are buried. Take a look at that.
Aidan: Oh, my God.

Bianca: Oh, Lena. I don't know what to say. It's -- it's beautiful.
Lena: Look, it's all right. I don't want any promises, and I don't even expect you to keep your ring if you don't want to. See, Iíll wear mine as a symbol of my love for you, and if you like, Iíll hold on to yours until you're ready. Bianca, I'm just so anxious to show you that my feelings for you are real and honorable. Please, let these rings be the first step towards some kind of a future together. Bianca, would you do me the honor, please?
Bianca: Lena -- this is -- it's incredible. But I can't accept them or you.
Lena: Please. No, Bianca, just give me one more chance.
Bianca: No, there's no more chances, ok? It's not going to happen. We're never going to be together again.
Lena: I don't understand. I thought --
Bianca: Everything has changed now, Lena, everything.
Maggie: I'm sorry, you guys are in the middle of something. How about I just catch you later?
Lena: Thank you.
Bianca: No, no, don't -- don't go. It's ok. Lena and I are done.
Lena: Bianca, we have --
Bianca: We're done.
Lena: So much more to say.
Maggie: I think Bianca said that you're done.
Lena: I'm sorry, you're not her girlfriend.
Maggie: And neither are you, looks like.
Erica: Bianca, we're just about to sit down for dinner.
Bianca: Oh, I'm sorry, Mom. I can't right now. I have to pass.
Erica: Bianca, I am not going to let Lena spoil this evening --
Bianca: No, it's not Lena, ok? I just need to spend some time with Maggie right now.
[Lena leaves]
Erica: Bianca, please. Come on, honey, change your mind. Join us for dinner, please.
Bianca: I'm sorry, Mom. I just need to hang out with Maggie right now.
Erica: All right, well, promise me that you'll eat something.
Maggie: Oh, don't worry. We'll get some burgers. I'll take care of her.
Erica: All right, then. I'll see you back at the apartment. Ok.
