To her surprise, Jack asks how she’d feel about having some company on the honeymoon, and proposes that they pack up the whole clan—the two of them, Lily, Bianca, Kendall and Reggie, the whole shooting match, and take them along. Erica glances at Kendall’s note before telling Jack she loves the idea, especially with Bianca so undone over Lena—it’s exactly what she needs!...

Maggie knows the wedding isn’t for hours; she wants her to stay and talk to her! She says something is obviously very wrong with her, and everyone is afraid for her; she knows something awful has happened. Bianca blames it on her breakup with Lena, but Maggie knows a breakup doesn’t put fear in your eyes, “Bianca, were you raped?”...

Bianca goes on that he wanted to dance; he locked the door and made her dance with him, and she didn’t want to! She recalls that his breath was lemony, and she couldn’t get away from it. The door seemed so far away, and she didn’t know how to get away from him—she made a mistake by making him angry! She hit him hard with the fireplace poker and ran for the door, but he caught her and threw her back. He tore the white shirt, the one that Lena liked, and she screamed so loud, but there was nobody to hear except him.

Jack has honeymoon plans, and Erica practically wets herself with relief. They make cute for a few lines in gay fashion. Jack sets the scene in the south of France. Erica guesses correctly that they're going to the Colombe d'Or. Jack calls her "mon cherie," which is wrong but cute. And then there's "Cap Something Something." I wish I knew more about France. Jack gets around to the real gist, which is that they bring "some company." Before Erica freaks, Jack explains he was thinking about bringing "the whole clan," which at this point means Binky, Kendall, Reggie, and Lily (his adopted, autistic daughter) as well. Erica stares at the note from Kendall for full anvil impact and then agrees. It really does sound sweet. And Erica thinks it'll be good for Binks with getting over Lena (no! boo!). Calling Bianca's trials of late some "unpleasantness she's been feeling," La Kane unwittingly delivers the understatement of the year. Jackson says that they'll love Bianca so much that Erica won't need to worry anymore...

Maggie keeps pushing: "[S]omething has happened, hasn't it? Something has happened, something awful." "Yes," Bianca says, exasperated. She says it's the breakup with Lena. And she does something here: "I'm sorry, Maggie; I was in love with her; I just can't get over it that easily." What was she doing there? The tone in her voice suggests sarcasm, almost, as if Binks can't quite shake the awareness that she's still performing her breakup like a role, and is unable to believe the version of events that she herself has decided to stick by. Or is it a tiny bit of cruelty? Maybe she wants to sound as though she thinks Maggie can't understand, since Maggie's relationship with Henry was such a joke, and Maggie once could have had Bianca if she wanted her, but she proclaimed her straightness and that was the end of it. I don't know exactly what was going on there, exactly what Bianca was trying to make Maggie think, but Eden sure zings those lines.

Bianca: No. And so I just tried to keep him calm; I was so stupid, Maggie— Maggie: No, you didn't do anything wrong, Bianca. Bianca: He wanted to dance . . . and he locked the door. And made me dance with him—I didn't want to. Maggie: No. I know you didn't. It's ok. Bianca: His breath was . . . lemony. I couldn't get away from it. And the door just seemed so far away, and I didn't know how to get there. And I didn't know how to get away from the music and his voice and . . . his eyes. I made a mistake . . . Maggie: No, you didn't; you didn't do anything wrong. Bianca: I did. I made him angry. I hit him. Hard. With a poker from the fireplace and I just ran; I just ran, just run, just open the door, like I've done a thousand times and then I would be free, but . . . he caught me . . . and he threw me back. Maggie is on the verge of tears. Bianca: (sighs) The shirt . . . the sh--, the white shirt, the one that Lena likes . . . he tore it. And I screamed . . . so loud . . . but there was nobody to hear it . . . except him . . . Maggie is crying. Bianca: . . . and he covered my mouth. And I hit him. I kicked him. Just to try to make him go away, just make him go away. Oh, but he was so strong. Ugh. I asked him not to. I said, "Please don't, please don't do this." Why did I say "please"? God, why didn't I fight harder? Maggie: No, you fought back; you didn't do anything wrong; it is not your fault. Bianca: He never even blinked. And I just tried to pretend that I wasn't there, that it wasn't me, but it was me. It was me. And he wouldn't stop. And he was ripping me in half, and he wouldn't stop. Oh, my God. I thought it would kill me. . . . Afterwards. Maggie: What? Bianca: I wish he had . . . killed me. Maggie: I am so sorry. I am so sorry. It's over now. It's over now. Bianca is choking on sobs. Maggie pulls a blanket off her bed and brings it to Bianca. Maggie: I won't hurt you, ok? I'm not gonna hurt you. Bianca nods. Maggie kneels next to Bianca, puts the blanket around her shoulders, and puts her arms around her. Maggie: I love you. I love you and you're safe now. Oh, God, you're safe.

PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Jack came to see Erica the morning before the wedding.
Erica: Are you sure you should be here? It's bad luck to see the bride before the ceremony?
Jack: What could possibly happen to spoil our luck. It's not like across town a deep dark secret is getting ready to blow up in our faces?

Meanwhile, across town Greenlee was reading the letter.
Greenlee: ::: Dear Jack, I wish I could tell you that I'm pregnant with your child::: ewwww, she's pregnant! oh, that's just disgusting! ::::I'm going to let Roger believe the baby is his:::::Oh good, she's talking about something that happened years ago. For a minute I thought...wait a minute - that's me she was pregnant with! Jack Montgomery is my father. I don't believe it. My whole life has been a lie. Let me look in the mirror. I don't look anything like him. Actually I look more like Erica. Ohhh nooo, she's going to be my stepmother!

Back at Erica's ....
Erica: Before we get married I want to ask my mother for her blessing.
Jack: What a lovely idea.
Erica: Mother, Jack and I are about to get married. He's the only man I ever really loved. I just know you're happy for us and that you wish us every happiness.
Mona's ghost: Ohhh Erica, you know this secret of yours is going to end up biting you in the b*** and ruining your happiness.
Jack: What did she say? I couldn't quite make it out.
Erica: She said you know I wish I could be there but I wish you every happiness.
Jack: That's perfect.
Erica: Now there's nothing that can go wrong with our wedding.
Brooke: I said that once right about this time last year.
Erica: Get out of my scene. :::hiss::::

Tad had a little talk with Jamie.
Tad: What on earth are you wearing?
Jamie: Awful isn't it? I don't feel quite so bad about being recast now. What are you doing?
Tad: I'm checking up on this guy Juan Pablo.
Jamie: The newbie that everyone says is so hot?
Tad: Yes. I'm tired of him already. But I'll head over to Fusion and fill everyone in on what I've found.

Juan Pablo was at Fusion schmoozing Liza.
Juan Pablo: What are you doing my lovely one? Liza: I'm checking in on the Sexiest Man contest. We're only doing one shameless plug today. Who could have believed that this little contest would become a national obsession?
Juan Pablo: Certainly not the audience. I've heard they think it's ridiculous.
Liza: :::giggle::::
Juan Pablo: You should laugh more often. When you laugh you are like a pastry.
Liza: Huh?
Juan Pablo: I cannot find a flower. Here, put his bagel in your hair.
Tad: Liza, I've never seen you look more stunning. Bread products suit you. Where are the Fusion girls?
Liza: I'm a Fusion girl.
Tad: I mean the real ones.
Liza: Kendall is getting ready for Erica's wedding. Greenlee's just discovered her whole life is a lie. Mia and Simone are such unimportant characters that they have no life outside of this nonsense.
Juan Pablo: Permit me to introduce myself. I am Juan Pablo Ricky Ricardo Generalissimo Francisco Franco.
Tad: I know all about you. I know more about you than the Fusion girls do.
Juan Pablo: Then will you fill me in. I'm sensing my character really isn't very well developed.



QUOTES

Maggie: You weren't talking about the bar, Bianca. You said rape.

Maggie: Breaking up with people doesn't make you jump every single time someone touches you. It doesn't put fear in your eyes. Bianca, were you raped?

[amc030729a starts]
Maggie: Hey
Bianca: Ohhh, man
Maggie: Got ya coffee. It's cafeteria swill but its better than nothing.
Bianca: I think I'll just stick with nothing for now. Oh my god, my mother's wedding. [She gets up abruptly and feels her hang-over] Oh no. Oh, bad idea.
Maggie: Uh-huh
Bianca: Oh god.
Maggie: You remember any of last night?
Bianca: Um, oh my god, we went to that bar, that horrible bar. Oh my god. Oh, I was completely out of control. I'm sorry.
Maggie: You have nothing to be sorry about. Here [give Bianca the coffee]. So, do you remember what you told me last night?
Bianca: I have a feeling that I said a lot of things.
Maggie: No, I mean when I brought you back here right before you passed out.
Bianca: What?
Maggie: you said you were scared. You were really really scared and you didn't want it to happen again.
Bianca: Yeah, well, I'm sure that last night was enough humiliation to last a lifetime.
Maggie: You weren't talking about the bar, Bianca. You said rape.

***** (clip c) [Maggie persists in trying to get Bianca to talk about the rape (no Lena)]

[amc030729b starts]
Bianca: I said, I said that?
[Maggie nods her head]
Bianca: Yeah, well, you know, I probably just saw flying pigs and pink elephants too, Maggie. Let's just forget about it.
Maggie: I can't, because you asked me to keep watch and you told me that he always comes to you in your sleep. Did he come to you in your sleep last night, Bianca? Who comes to you in your sleep?
Bianca: You know, I don't know what I was saying last night, Maggie, okay? I was probably talking about the sandman or the tooth fairy for all I know. It doesn't matter.
Maggie: Bianca, what are you afraid of?
Bianca: How about ruining my mother's wedding? Which is exactly I'm going to do if I don't get out of here. I'm sure that she's wondering where I am.
Maggie: I called your mother last night and called her this morning again.
Bianca: What did you tell her?
Bianca: Don't worry, I played it off like we were having a slumber party. That's all.
Bianca: Thank you. Look, I just got to go. I'll return this later. I promise.
Maggie: Bianca, the wedding isn't for hours. I just want you to stay with me, and I just want you to talk with me. That's all.
Bianca: There's nothing to talk about.
Maggie: I think there is.
Bianca: Well, you're wrong.
Maggie: There is something obviously really wrong. And everyone is very afraid.
Bianca: What? you know what, Maggie, you shouldn't be.
Maggie: Well, I think that something has happened. Hasn't it? Something has happened. Something awful.
Bianca: Yes. Yes, something did happen. I broke up with Lena. I'm sorry, Maggie, I was in love with her. I just can't get over it that easily.
Maggie: Breaking up with people doesn't make you jump every single time someone touches you. It doesn't put fear in your eyes. Bianca, were you raped?
Bianca: I gotta go.
Maggie: I can't. I can't let you leave like this.
[Flashback of Michael locking the doors]
Bianca: No! Don't lock the door. Don't lock the door. Just let me go.

***** (clip d) [Bianca decides to tell Maggie about the rape (no Lena)]

[amc030729d starts]
Bianca: Don't lock the door. Don't lock the door. Don't --
Maggie: I didn't. I didn't lock the door. It's okay. Bianca, what happened?
Bianca: I can't. I can't, I can't, I can't talk about it, I can't, I can't do it, I won't.
Maggie: Bianca, you cannot shut down on me right now, ok? I love you; I just want to help you. If it happened, if you were raped, you have to talk to someone about it, you have to let it out; you cannot keep it locked up inside. It will not make the pain go away; it will not make it better. I want to do what you asked me to do, remember?
[Bianca looks at her.]
Maggie: I want to make sure that he never comes near you ever again, but I can't do that unless you talk to me. I'm your friend; just tell me, please, tell me what happened.
[Bianca looks as though she's about to break. She's looking at Maggie; her eyes fill with tears and her chin trembles]
Bianca: No, I can't. I can't.
Maggie: Yes you can. You can. I will help you.
Bianca: It'll all come back. I'll make it real again, Maggie. It can't be real. I can't let it be real. I can't let him touch me. Oh, God.
[Bianca falls to her knees. She tries to keep from sobbing and takes in a jagged breath.]
Bianca: He hurt me. He held me down [pause] and he hurt me.

***** (clip e) [Bianca tells Maggie about the rape (Lena mention)]

[amc030729e starts]
Maggie: Bianca, it's okay. It's okay. He won't hurt you. He won't come near you ever again.
Bianca: He never left me. I hear him. I feel him. I see him. He's with me now. He's still inside me.
Maggie: Then we'll make him go away.
Bianca: I can't. I tried. I thought that I could talk to him, that I could escape, but he was so angry and so strong. He grabbed me, and held me down. I can't, I can't do it, Maggie, please don't make me say it—
Maggie: Come on, ok, you have to. I will help you.
Bianca: I don't want it to be real.
Maggie: But I'm real, and I won't leave you, ok? We will do this together, ok?
[Bianca looks at Maggie]
Maggie: When did it happen?
Bianca: The night of the storm. I went back home, and the power was out. It was so hot and dark. I couldn't see anything. Just black. But he was there, waiting for me, at Myrtle's.
Maggie: Who was there?
Bianca: You know who.
Maggie: So nobody else was home.
Bianca: No. And I didn't even see him at first. I didn't even know he was there, until he lit his lighter under his face like a Halloween mask.
Maggie: Oh, my God.
Bianca: He asked me to light a candle, and he apologized? He said he didn't mean to make me scared. But I saw his face. I saw his eyes, Maggie, and I was scared. And I didn't know what to do. I just wanted him to leave. And I asked him to go, but he wouldn't go. And I just thought, "somebody else is gonna come home."
Maggie: (almost inaudible) And no one did.
Bianca: No. And so I just tried to keep him calm; I was so stupid, Maggie—
Maggie: No, you didn't do anything wrong, Bianca.
Bianca: He wanted to dance and he locked the door. And made me dance with him—I didn't want to.
Maggie: No. I know you didn't. It's ok.
Bianca: His breath was lemony. I couldn't get away from it. And the door just seemed so far away, and I didn't know how to get there. And I didn't know how to get away from the music and his voice and his eyes. I made a mistake.
Maggie: No, you didn't; you didn't do anything wrong.
Bianca: I did. I made him angry. I hit him. Hard. With a poker from the fireplace and I just ran; I just ran, just run, just open the door, like I've done a thousand times and then I would be free, but he caught me and he threw me back.
[Maggie is on the verge of tears]
Bianca: (sighs) The shirt; the sh--, the white shirt, the one that Lena likes; he tore it. And I screamed, so loud, but there was nobody to hear it except him.
[Maggie is crying]
Bianca: And he covered my mouth. And I hit him. I kicked him. Just to try to make him go away, just make him go away. Oh, but he was so strong. Ugh. I asked him not to. I said, "Please don't, please don't do this." Why did I say "please"? God, why didn't I fight harder?
Maggie: No, you fought back; you didn't do anything wrong; it is not your fault.
Bianca: He never even blinked. And I just tried to pretend that I wasn't there, that it wasn't me, but it was me. It was me. And he wouldn't stop. And he was ripping me in half, and he wouldn't stop. Oh, my God. I thought it would kill me. Afterwards,
Maggie: What?
Bianca: I wish he had killed me.
Maggie: I am so sorry. I am so sorry. It's over now. It's over now.
[Bianca is choking on sobs. Maggie pulls a blanket off her bed and brings it to Bianca]
Maggie: I won't hurt you, ok? I'm not gonna hurt you.
[Bianca nods. Maggie kneels next to Bianca, puts the blanket around her shoulders, and puts her arms around her]
Maggie: I love you. I love you and you're safe now. Oh, God, you're safe.

***** (clip f) [Bianca tells Maggie that it was Michael who raped her (no Lena)]

[amc030729f starts]
[Maggie's arms are still around Bianca]
Maggie: Why don't you just tell somebody?
Bianca: Who could I tell?
Maggie: Your mother. She's been through this before.
Bianca: Yeah, I know. And if I told her, it would just bring it all back. It would be her rape all over again. How could I do that to her?
Maggie: You told me. You told me, and now we have to do something about it. Because he's still out there, and he could still come after you, so what we have to do now is that we have to go to the police. Ok, so you know what, maybe what we should do is write down a description [grabs a notepad and pen] – can you tell me um, you know, how, what was he wearing? Is he tall, is he short, is he old, is he young?
Bianca: Maggie, that's not necessary.
Maggie: Of course it's necessary. The better the description, the better chance we have of getting this guy.
Bianca: I know him.
Maggie: What? You know him? Bianca nods.
Maggie: Who is he?
Bianca: It was Michael. Michael Cambias.

***** (clip g) [Maggie wants to call uncle Jack (no Lena)]

[amc030729g starts]
Maggie: Michael Cambias raped you?
[Bianca nods warily]
Maggie: Okay.
[Maggie gets up and grabs the phone and Bianca freaks]
Bianca: Maggie, wait! Who are you calling?
Maggie: I'm calling your uncle Jack!
[Bianca grabs the phone]
You can't!
