From About All My Children
http://allmychildren.about.com/cs/recaps/a/bl20030807r.htmMaggie is surprised when Lena comes to her dorm room, explaining she needs to know what’s going on with Bianca. Bianca says that she’s fine, yet she knows something has happened and something is seriously wrong. Maggie asks why she should tell her? Lena knows how she feels about her, but also knows that she cares deeply for Bianca as she does, and that she only wants to help her, “Don’t you? If you know anything, I really think you should tell me.” Maggie doesn’t feel real comfortable talking to her about Bianca. When Lena insists she just wants to help, Maggie doesn’t think she wants her help, and points out that Bianca did break up with her. Lena argues she still loves her, but something happened to make her pull away. Maggie suggests it might be that she slept with Michael Cambias and tried to ruin her mom’s business! Lena doesn’t disagree that what she did to Bianca was terrible, but she forgave her and they were planning a future together. It doesn’t make any sense for her to shut down with no reasonable explanation, and she just knows something is wrong. Lena pleads that she’s her closest friend and would confide in her, so why can’t she just tell her? Maggie says it’s because Bianca needs someone she can count on, no matter what, and she doesn’t think Lena is that person! She wishes she could help her, but she can’t. Lena pleads that Bianca took a chance on her when she didn’t deserve it. She helped her when she was completely alone in the world, and now she wants to be there for Bianca, to give her the same kind of strength she gave her. Maggie thinks the best thing she can do for her is to leave her alone, and even if she knew something, she wouldn’t betray Bianca’s trust. Bianca comes through the open door, and demands to know what she’s doing here? When Lena says she just wanted to know how she was, Bianca tells her, “If you want to know anything about me, then ask me—not my girlfriend!” Maggie and Lena both look at her in surprise before Lena exclaims that she doesn’t believe it! Maggie confirms they are a couple, and Bianca agrees Maggie shouldn’t have to deal with her ex. Lena says Bianca’s going to have to do a lot better than this, because she doesn’t believe her. She leaves and Bianca thanks Maggie so much for playing along.
From Soap Slut
http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm6.showMessage?topicID=96.topicLena comes to Maggie to find out what's wrong with Bianca, and if she can help. Maggie gives her a massive cold shoulder. As if that didn't make me sad enough for Lena, Bianca finds her at Maggie's and icily tells her not to bug her "girlfriend" about these things. Aaaaaargh. Lena naturally leaves, but not before telling Bianca that she knows something's wrong and that she knows what she's hearing isn't the truth. Bianca deflates like a very sad balloon once Lena's gone and has to face Maggie being pissed at her for lying. Bianca in turn is pissed because she thinks Maggie ratted her out to Anna and David. It doesn't take long for the air to clear, and Maggie promises to help Bianca's fragile state of mind out as best she can. As a sidenote, I find it hard to believe that people are back on the Bianca/Maggie ship again now. The friendship is nice, but they still have all the chemistry of rotten eggs with moldy cheese. I'm just sayin'.
From Lianca Recaps
http://www.dykesvision.com/en/amc/august07lianca.htmlPreviously on AMC: While trying to talk to Bianca after Erica's rehearsal, Lena brushed Maggie off by telling her she wasn't her girlfriend, but Maggie said Lena wasn't either.
Maggie is sweeping up her room in a hideous ensemble. Let me try to describe it: stacked heel shoes and a denim mini plus big denim belt, with a fitted yellow tee and a light blue tank top, except the tank top has been sewn onto the tee, so it looks like it's layered, but it's really all one garment. There's a knock at the door. She doesn't bother stopping her sweeping, but asks who it is. More knocking, this time more insistent. She finally answers, and it's—Lena! She's in a black v-neck sleeveless knee-length dress. Maggie says she doesn't think she can help Lena, whatever she's looking for. Lena says she needs to know what's up with Bianca. "Why don't you ask her?" says Mags. "I have," Lena says, "lots of times, and she always says the same thing, that she's 'fine.'" "Then, that's you're answer," Mags replies. She has to get back to "busting dust bunnies," and tries to close the door. Lena stops her. She knows something is seriously wrong: "If she's told you anything . . ." "Why should I tell you?" Maggie stonewalls. Lena swallows. "Maggie, I know what you think of me, but I also know that you care deeply for Bianca, just like I do." Maggie looks earnest, maybe uncomfortable. "I only want to help her," Lena continues, "don't you? If you know anything, I really think you should tell me." Her eyes search Maggie's face. Poor clueless Fox...
PVU hallway. Oh, HPF. I'm so sorry you had to stoop so low. She's still standing right outside Maggie's doorway, but Maggie has her come in and closes the door, then turns to face Lena. "I don't feel real comfortable talking about Bianca," she says. Lena understands: "It's okay, Maggie; I just want to help." Maggie doesn't think Binks wants any Hot Polish Help. Didn't she break up with Lena? "Well, yes, but she still loves me, okay, I know that much," Lena says. Mags: "It doesn't look like it." Ouch! "Well, no," Lena answers, "because something happened to make her pull away." Maggie thinks maybe it's the whole sleeping with Michael Cambias/going after Enchantment thing. Agh, Maggie, that's low—and old news. Lena agrees that what she did to Bianca was "terrible," but Bianca forgave her, and they "were planning a future together." "Well, looks like she has other plans," Maggie says, crossing and turning away from Lena, to fiddle with some papers. The Fox just doesn't think it makes sense for Bianca to "shut down so completely without any warning, any reasonable explanation"; she knows something is wrong. Maggie turns back around. "Maybe she just doesn't love you anymore," she offers. D***, girl. Maggie is being harsh today. Lena freezes, with the all-too-familiar Hurt! expression. "Okay, look," she says, letting down her guard and in a completely different tone, "you're her closest friend. If she were to tell anyone, it would be you . . ." Maggie, frustrated but not really able to keep up her front, looks up at Lena from under her eyebrows. Lena sees it: "She has told you something, hasn't she?" "No, really, she's told me nothing," Maggie lies, which exasperates Lena even more: "Maggie, why can't you just tell me?" Maggie exhales. "Because Bianca needs someone that she can count on. No matter what. And well I just don't think that you're that person." Ohhh, burn, Maggie. Lena pulls back a little and sighs, part in frustration and part disbelief...
Maggie wishes she could help Lena, but says she can't. Lena tries to convince her. "Bianca took a chance on me when I didn't deserve it. She helped me when I was completely alone in the world, and now she needs me, and I want to be there for her—to give her the kind of strength that she gave me—" she stamps her foot at the end. Maggie thinks that the best thing Lena can do for Bianca—she opens the door—"is to leave her alone." Lena refuses. "She did not abandon me when I needed her, and I won't leave her now. Maggie, please, just tell me what I need to know." Maggie waits a beat before changing tacks. She says she can't believe that the HPF would "sneak behind [Bianca's] back." Lena protests that she didn't have a choice. "Well, you know, you could've saved yourself a trip, because even if I did know something, I will not betray her trust, I'm sorry." Lena: "Not even to help her?" There's a noise—the sound of somebody clomping around in heels. I'd know that clomp anywhere: it's Binks, of course. She appears in the doorway and looks freaked to see Lena. "What are you doing here?" she blurts. "Bianca," Lena breathes, "I just wanted to know how you are." Oh, the poor Fox. Olga is really selling this. "Well," Binks closes the door, "if you want to know something about me, then ask me—not my girlfriend." Heh. Although this is bulls***, Maggie takes her eyes from Lena for a second to look at Bianca without giving it away. Good job, Liz Hendrickson. Lena's mouth falls open and she looks from Binks to Maggie...
Bianca walks to Maggie's chair and puts her purse down. "You and Maggie?" Lena says. "I'm sorry; I don't believe it." Rock on, Lena. Binks tells her to "believe whatever [she] want[s]; it doesn't change anything—right, Maggie?" ". . . Right," Maggie says obligingly. "Because Bianca and I—we are a couple." She crosses to where Binks is standing, and they both face Lena. "No, you're not," replies the HPF, in the same tone she might use disagreeing that the sky is green. "I'm sorry, Lena," Binks says snittily. "Look, if this—if this were true," Lena says, looking at Maggie, "you would've said something." Maggie b.s.es that it wasn't her place. Binks agrees: "she shouldn't have to deal with my ex." Godd***! Lena stares, open-mouthed, before shifting her weight. "You're gonna have to do a lot better than this, because . . . I don't believe you." Bianca looks at her with a stubborn, unreadable expression. Lena looks back before turning to go.
As soon as the door closes, Maggie tells Binks she should talk to the Fox. "No, she's gone," says Bianca. "And thanks so much for playing along." "Like I had a choice," Maggie says. "Bianca, how many lies are you gonna spin here?" "As many as it takes," Binks snaps. Maggie thinks that Lena "loves [Binks] so much"; Bianca "[does]n't have to play mind games with her." Awww, Maggie...

Coming whenever C.K. sends it to me. I am looking so forward to it. A day without CK's recap is like a day without sunshine. I need my vitamin E, you know. We all do. Yes, I must contain my anticipation. But it's sooo hard.
This parody is by LizzieT.
Anna came to see Bianca.
Anna: I need your help with a case.
Bianca: My help?
Anna: Yes. Suppose a friend of yours - lets call her Belinda - had been the victim of a crime. What would you advise her to do?
Bianca: Why are you asking me this?
Anna: I just hope that you would advise your friend to trust the Pine Valley Police Department. You know our fine record in solving crimes and protecting the citizens of this fair city. Belinda could depend on us to protect her from anyone or anything.
Bianca: I'm sure I'd tell Belinda to trust the police completely. :::closes door on Anna::::Poor Belinda. With the PVPD taking care of her she doesn't have a chance.
Lena went to see Maggie.
Lena: I need to talk to you about Bianca.
Maggie: Why should I talk to you about Bianca?
Lena: We both care about her. And frankly we're both dependent on her for storylines. I've hardly been seen since she broke up with me and you know what your storylines were like without her.
Bianca: If you want to know something about me, come to me about it, not to my girlfriend.
Lena: I don't believe she's your girlfriend.
Bianca: Why not?
Lena: TPTB made such a point of making her straight. They hired a boyfriend for her and even built a classroom and a Chinese restaurant for her love story. They can't turn around now and make her your girlfriend.
Maggie: Things change you know. I think you were supposed to be a con until you caught on with the audience. Who knows where the new writers are going with this.
Erica found Mary at Jack's apartment.
Erica: Is this desperate pathetic woman bothering you Jack?
Mary: I know you are but what am I?
Erica: You miserable excuse for a human being.
Mary: I know you are but what am I?
Jack: Mary was just leaving.
Mary: I know you are but what am I?
Jack: Out! Now what do you want Erica?
Erica: I need to talk to you about Bianca.
Jack: You wouldn't be using Bianca to get my attention would you?
Erica: Why would you think I would do something like that? Have I ever tried to trick you before?
Jack: Have you got a couple of hours? Now I'm busy. Greenlee might need me to pick her up from dance lessons or take her to the circus.
Erica: :::hair toss::How dare you treat me like this? Get out of here!
Jack: It's my house.
Erica: Oohhh, you really are trying to be difficult aren't you? :::hair toss::::You had your chance. I'm leaving. Don't try to stop me.
Later Erica turned to Mona.
Erica: Mom, I don't know what to do. I need help so badly. Please send me a sign.
Erica: Mom, are you listening? I need you to send my a sign that you'll help me.
Erica: Pay no attention to that knocking on the door Mom. Just help me.
Mona's ghost: :::sigh:::She doesn't really catch on that quickly, does she?
Myrtle: Erica, let me in.
Erica: Not now Myrtle. I'm asking my mother for a sign and you keep knocking on the door and disturbing us.
Myrtle: :::sigh:::You really don't catch on that quickly do you?
Michael was at the Fusion offices.
Michael: I could give you the 500,000 you need.
Kendall: You set us up didn't you?
Michael: Bwahahahahahaha! :::twirls mustache:::What are you going to do about it?
Kendall: I'm going to tell your daddy on you.
Michael: No! You'd better not! Dont tell on me! I don't want Daddy to get mad at me again. I'll get you for this.
Aidan: Ere Oi come to sive the digh! Toim to tike out the trash agin Moikey old bean.
Mia: Good, he's gone. Now what are we going to do?
Kendall: I know. We'll steal the money from Michael's safe. I've been carrying the combination around for months for some reason. This must be it.
Simone: But what if he catches you?
Kendall: You and Mia watch him and keep him from coming back.
Mia: What if he tries to kill us?
Kendall: Well, you two are pretty much expendable characters. It will be OK.
Mia cornered Michael in the lobby of the Valley Inn.
Mia: Let's talk.
Michael: Didn't you set me up once before? Why would you think I'd trust you again?
Mia: We're the Fusion girls. We don't think, we just act.
Simone: Look out everyone. Here I come!
Simone impaled Michael on the prongs of a forklift and he died a painful miserable lingering death.
Michael: It was a luggage cart not a forklift.
Aidan and Kendall tried to break into the safe.
Aidan: Oi thawt yew said this was the combinighshun.
Kendall: I thought it was. But now that I look at it, I think it's my social security number instead. I knew it looked familiar. Let's just steal the whole safe. But let's wait around a little bit longer. I have a strange feeling that the phone might ring and I need to be the one to answer it.
Alexander and Ryan's arm had reached a hotel.
Alexander: Let me write you a check for an obscene amount of money.
Ryan's shoulder: You dont' have to pay me.
Alexander: Nonsense, dont you know who I am?
Ryan's crotch: No, do you know who I am?
Alexander: I think everyone in the audience knows who you are. I don't know why they're dragging this stuff out one body part at a time. Auuughhhh!
Ryan's shoulder: Hey, are you OK?
Ryan's leg: Is something wrong?
Ryan's back: Are you trying to tell me something?
Alexander: Call my son! :::gack:::tell him what happened:::yeckkhhh::::His name is Michael Cambias.
Ryan's b***: Uh oh, looks like this guy is dying. I'll do the Heimlich maneuver...wait that's for choking.....I'll do CPA....no, that's for accounting....CPR, that's it,that's what I'll do.
Paramedics: It looks like he has a chance. You may have saved his life - or may have caused irrevocable damage. It's hard to tell.
Back of Ryan's head: I'll just call his son. Hey this is Pine Valley's area code. I wonder if his son knows any of the same people I used to be engaged to. I'll just give him a call.
Ryan's neck: Is Michael there?
Kendall: Who is this?
Ryan! : Who is this?
Lizzie: Wow, it's Ryan! What a surprise! I never would have guessed it in a million years!
Maggie: Now, if you don't mind, I'm busting dust bunnies.
Bianca: I'm not really up on police procedure or anything.
Jack: Erica, you wouldn't be using Bianca to get to me, would you?
Maggie: Maybe it's because you slept with Michael Cambias and because you tried to ruin her mom's business.
Maggie: Bianca needs someone that she can count on no matter what. And, well, I just don't think that you're that person.
Lena: She did not abandon me when I needed her, and I won't leave her now.
Lena: Bianca, I just wanted to know how you are.
Bianca: Well, if you want to know something about me, then ask me, not my girlfriend.
Lena: You and Maggie? I'm sorry. I don't believe it.
Erica: I think that Bianca was raped by Michael Cambias.
Maggie: In my experience, the best way to not disappear is to have a brain freeze. So, how about we go to the park? I know, isn't that stupid? Let's go to the park. We'll have a fudgsicle.

[Knock on door]
Maggie: Oh. Hold on a second.
Maggie: Coming, coming, hold on, hold on, hold on. Hi. I'm sorry. I think whatever you need, I don't think I can help you.
Lena: Maggie, I need to know what's going on with Bianca.
Maggie: Why don't you ask her?
Lena: Well, I have, lots of times, and she always says the same thing -- that she's fine.
Maggie: Well, then, that's your answer. Now, if you don't mind, I'm busting dust bunnies.
Lena: Look, I know something's happened. Something seriously is wrong. I -- if she's told you anything --
Maggie: Why should I tell you?
Lena: Maggie, I know what you think of me, but I also know that you care deeply for Bianca just like I do. And I only want to help her. Don't you? If you know anything, I really think you should tell me.
***** (clip c) [Anna tries to trick the infomration out of Bianca (no Lena)]
[Knock on door]
Bianca: Oh. Ok, ok.
Anna: I hope you don't mind me dropping by, but I wonder if you could help me.
Bianca: Help you? With what?
Anna: It's this case I’m working on. It's kind of got me stumped, and I just thought maybe you could give me your insight.
Bianca: Well, I'm not really up on police procedure or anything.
Anna: No, I realize that. It's just that the person involved is kind of around the same age as you.
Bianca: Well --
Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, of course. Come in, come in.
Anna: We have information that this young woman has been assaulted, and I -- I understand that she's too afraid to press charges.
Bianca: I don't really see how I can help you.
Anna: Well, I was hoping that maybe you could tell me how I could get this young woman to trust me so that she would tell me what she knows, and then I can arrest her attacker. Do you think you could help me?
***** (clip d) [Jack suspects that Erica is using Bianca to get back with him (no Lena)]
Jack: Why are you here?
Erica: I'm not here because of us.
Jack: You're not?
Erica: I'm here because of Bianca. You know how upset she's been.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, I do. I just thought she was, you know, kind of working through that.
Erica: No, she's not. She needs help. Jack, she needs help that I don't know how to give her. I don't know what to do.
Jack: Well, hold on. Hold on. What kind of help does she need? I mean, what happened, exactly?
Erica: That's just it, Jack. I'm -- I’m not exactly sure. All I know is that I have an idea. I have, you know, suspicions. I have a horrible feeling. But all I really know is that she needs more help than I can give her. And so please, Jack, you've got to help me.
Jack: Wait a minute. Help you?
Erica: Bianca trusts you. She opens up to you like nobody else. Please, Jack, please, help me talk to her.
Jack: Erica, you wouldn't be using Bianca to get to me, would you?
***** (clip e) [Maggie doesn't think Lena is who Bianca needs around her right now]
Maggie: Come in for a second. I don't feel real comfortable talking to you about Bianca.
Lena: It's ok, Maggie. I just want to help.
Maggie: I don't think she wants your help. I mean, she did break up with you, right?
Lena: Well, yes, but she still loves me, ok? I know that much.
Maggie: It doesn't really look like it.
Lena: Well, no, because something happened to make her pull away.
Maggie: Yeah, well, maybe it's because you slept with Michael Cambias and because you tried to ruin her mom's business, so --
Lena: Look, what I did to Bianca was terrible, but, Maggie, the fact is she forgave me. We were planning a future together.
Maggie: Well, looks like she has other plans.
Lena: It doesn't make any sense for her to shut down so completely without any warning, any reasonable explanation. I just know something's wrong.
Maggie: Maybe she just doesn't love you anymore.
Lena: Ok, look. You're her closest friend. If she were to tell anyone, it would be you. She has told you something, hasn't she?
Maggie: No, really. She's told me nothing.
Lena: Maggie, why can't you just tell me?
Maggie: Because Bianca needs someone that she can count on no matter what. And, well, I just don't think that you're that person.
***** (clip f) [Anna's trick does not work (no Lena)]
Bianca: You said that the woman was assaulted?
Anna: Yeah, that's right. And she's terrified, because the man who went after her is still free.
Bianca: Well, I can imagine that that would be very scary.
Anna: So that's why I wanted to tell her that the police will protect her. Do you think that that would make her open up?
Bianca: It might.
Anna: What about you?
Anna: Well, yeah. If you had a friend in this situation, would you tell her to come forward?
Bianca: Absolutely. I mean, a crime has been committed. It should definitely be reported.
Anna: Even if she was too afraid to go to the police?
Bianca: Well, I would tell her that there's nothing to be afraid of. I know that you would treat her with compassion and respect and that she would get the help that she needs.
Anna: You're very wise.
Bianca: I'm also late. I have an appointment.
Anna: Sorry. I don't want to keep you.
Bianca: So, there's nothing else?
Anna: No. Just take care of yourself, Bianca, ok?
Bianca: I will. And good luck with your case.
***** (clip g) [Erica reads Jackson the riot act (no Lena)]
Erica: You think I'm using my daughter to manipulate you? How dare you! I'm here because my daughter is in trouble, I mean, real trouble, and you think this is about you? You think that I would use my daughter's crisis to bait you?
Jack: No, no. I -- it's not -- Erica, it's just that this one that just left here, she --
Erica: Oh, I see. Well, if you can't tell the difference between me and Mary Smythe, then you know what? I'm glad this wedding never happened.
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! I didn't say that -- will you just -- stop, please? I'm sorry. Of course I'm worried about Bianca. You know that, but it's just that Greenlee’s probably had the shock of her life and she's got nobody, absolutely nobody that she can turn to, and I’m hoping maybe that I can help her and try to make things right by her.
Erica: Ok, you do that. You go to Greenlee. You help her. You worry about her. And while you're playing daddy to Greenlee, I’m going to help the daughter that you said you cared about since the day she was born!
Jack: Erica, would you -- d***!
***** (clip h) [Bianca tries to make Lena think Bianca and Maggie are a couple ]
Maggie: I wish I could help you, but I can't.
Lena: Maggie, listen. Bianca took a chance on me when I didn't deserve it. She helped me when I was completely alone in the world, and now she needs me, and I want to be there for her, to give her the kind of strength that she gave me.
Maggie: I think the best thing that you can do for her is to leave her alone.
Lena: No. No, she did not abandon me when I needed her, and I won't leave her now. Maggie, please just tell me what I need to know.
Maggie: You know, I can't believe that you actually came here, sneak behind her back like this.
Lena: It's not as though I had any choice. You're the only person left that I could come to.
Maggie: Well, you know, you could have saved yourself a trip, because even if I did know something, I wouldn't tell you because I will not betray her trust. I'm sorry.
Lena: Not even to help her?
Bianca: What are you doing here?
Lena: Bianca, I -- I just wanted to know how you are.
Bianca: Well, if you want to know something about me, then ask me, not my girlfriend.
***** (clip i) [Lena tells Bianca she doesn't believe Maggie is her girlfriend]
Lena: You and Maggie? I'm sorry. I don't believe it.
Bianca: Well, believe whatever you want. It doesn't change anything. Right, Maggie?
Maggie: Right, because Bianca and I, we are a couple.
Lena: No, you're not.
Bianca: I'm sorry, Lena.
Lena: Look, if -- if this were true, you would have said something.
Maggie: Oh, well, I just didn't think it was my place.
Bianca: She's right, you know. She shouldn't have to deal with my ex.
Lena: You're going to have to do a lot better than this because I don't believe you.
Maggie: You should go talk to her.
Bianca: No, she's gone. And thanks so much for playing along.
Maggie: Huh, like I had a choice. Bianca, how many lies are you going to spin here?
Bianca: As many as it takes.
Maggie: Well, she loves you so much. You know, you don't have to play mind games with her.
Bianca: Games. That's nice. Like maybe the one you played when you promised me that you weren't going to tell anybody what happened and then you sicced Anna and David on me?
Maggie: I didn't tell them anything!
Bianca: Really? Well, then, what was with Anna cornering me today with some bogus story about an assault victim that she needed to help?
Maggie: Duh, maybe because you were the one who freaked out at the Valley Inn when Michael Cambias came near you. They also know that I held a knife to him, and they know that he tried to attack Kendall and Erica. Bianca, David and Anna are extremely intelligent people. How many dots do you think they really need?
Bianca: So you didn't say anything?
Maggie: Of course I didn't say anything. I promised you I wouldn't say anything on our love for Frankie. I wouldn't give you up for anyone. But do you realize how scary it is for you to hold on to this?
***** (clip j) [Erica tells Myrtle she thinks Bianca was raped (no Lena)]
Myrtle: I know you're hurting for Jack, and you're wishing your mother was here to say just the right thing, so I'm going to try to say it for her. Now, that man loves you with all his heart, and he's going to find his way back to you, where he belongs.
Erica: Myrtle, thank you, but this doesn't have to do with Jack. [amc030807j-inc starts] I mean where Jack is concerned, I know that I made some mistakes, and I am going to deal with that. I really am. But this, this is -- this is beyond my control.
Myrtle: What? What has happened?
Erica: It's Bianca.
Myrtle: Oh, that poor girl. You know, she was so excited about you and Jack getting married.
Erica: And I should have seen it. But I didn't. Maybe because I didn't want to. Maybe because I couldn't handle it.
Myrtle: Darling, darling, seen what? Known what? What are you talking about?
Erica: Well, it was all right there, all right there in front of me -- her moving out of your house, her not eating, her burning her clothes.
Myrtle: Oh, sweetheart, sweetheart, breaking up. You know, that can be very hard on a young, tender heart.
Erica: And throwing herself into making the wedding plans like that, I mean, she just -- she obsessed about every single detail, and she was trying so hard.
Myrtle: She was overexcited. That's natural.
Erica: No, there is nothing natural about what happened to my daughter.
Myrtle: For heaven's sake, what are you trying to say?
Erica: Bianca -- oh, I can't even say it. I can't even think it. I -- I won't let myself, and then, you see, even if I won't let myself, then, my God, how can I help her, Myrtle? How can I help her?
Myrtle: Darling, whatever it is, now, just say it.
Erica: Rape, Myrtle. I think -- I think that Bianca was raped by Michael Cambias.
***** (clip k) [Myrtle gives Erica the strength to help Bianca (no Lena)]
Myrtle: Bianca, raped?
Myrtle: But you're not sure.
Erica: Well, David came over here with his suspicions. It all makes such perfect sense. And if it's true, Myrtle, if it's true that Michael Cambias hurt her --
Myrtle: Look, have you talked to Bianca?
Erica: I did. I asked her. I asked her if Michael Cambias did anything to her, and she completely denied it.
Myrtle: Then you don't believe her.
Erica: I pretended that I did. I mean, I let her go out of the room. I let her go because I was afraid, Myrtle, because I couldn't look in her eyes. I didn't want to look in her eyes and see. God, Myrtle, what am I going to do? How can I help her?
Myrtle: Darling, the first thing you must do is find the facts.
Erica: I can't bear to even hear it, Myrtle!
Myrtle: Yes, I know, I know, I know. I know, darling. You have spent all those years trying to come to terms with your own attack. But, sweetheart, that journey, that hard journey of yours has made you strong, and that is what Bianca needs now.
Erica: I can't, Myrtle. I can't.
Myrtle: You can, you can, you can, and you will. Now, you will dig deep and you will find out the facts, and then you will help Bianca.
Erica: I'm not that strong, Myrtle. I'm really not.
Myrtle: Sweetheart, sweetheart, you listen to me. You are the only one now who can help Bianca. Your heart and the knowledge of what she's going through, now, that's going to give you the courage you need.
Erica: Of course it will. Of course you're right. Of course I'm going to help her.
Myrtle: For Bianca’s sake and for yours.
***** (clip l) [Maggie asks Bianca to go out for a fudgsicle (no Lena)]
Bianca: I'm sorry that I put you in the middle of all of this.
Maggie: You don't have to apologize, ok?
Bianca: Yeah, well, if it weren't for me, then you --
Maggie: No, listen, you have to stop thinking about everyone else, ok? You have to start thinking about yourself. Do you understand that?
Bianca: David got to my mom. She asked me if Michael Cambias hurt me.
Maggie: What -- when? Did you tell her what happened?
Bianca: No, I'm not ever going to tell her, Maggie. There's no way that I'm going to put her through her rape again. You know that.
Maggie: You're going to protect your mother forever? What about what you need?
Bianca: This is what I need. This is the way it has to be, Maggie. I don't have a choice.
Maggie: Yes, you do.
Bianca: No, I don’t. I can't tell anybody, and, my God, I mean, even just thinking about it makes me crazy. I can't sleep. I can't breathe. I get sick. I throw up.
Maggie: You can't deny what's happened.
Bianca: I'm not denying what's happened. I'm just -- I'm just so afraid that if I say those words out loud to somebody that I’m going to disintegrate, I'll disappear.
Maggie: No. It's not true.
Bianca: It is true. Maggie, I just want to be the person that I used to be. And the only way that I can do that is if everybody still thinks that I'm that person.
Maggie: So you're going to pretend to be you?
Bianca: I have to. I don't have a choice. I don't want to disappear.
Maggie: You won't disappear. I won't let you. Ok, I promise.
Maggie: And you know what? In my experience, the best way to not disappear is to have a brain freeze. So, how about we go to the park? I know, isn't that stupid? Let's go to the park. [amc030807l-inc1 ends] We'll have a fudgsicle.
