Jack is devastated over Bianca's rape by Michael and does his best to reach out to Erica. After reading the police report, Jack realizes there might not be enough evidence to convict Michael and shares his fears with Anna and Erica. Bianca agrees to be examined by David. With a supportive Maggie by her side, Bianca manages to get through the examination. David doesn't reveal to Bianca what he discovered while examining her. Myrtle's worst fears are confirmed when the police arrive and label her home a crime scene. A shaken Myrtle tells a shocked Boyd and Lena that Michael raped Bianca. Lena breaks down outside of Erica's door as she desperately tries to find Bianca. Aidan kills the poisonous snake Kendall unleashed in Michael's condo. Aidan insists that Kendall abandon her quest to kill Michael. Kendall convinces Aidan she will stop trying to get revenge on Michael but it is clear she has no intention of doing so.

Bianca comes downstairs, looking radiant as she smiles at Lena waiting below. Lena is beaming, and we see that they are wearing the matching white gold bands Lena offered Bianca before this nightmare began. Myrtle, Boyd and Maggie are there to see them off on their trip, and the happy couple walk off in the sunshine… Lena’s reverie is broken when Myrtle asks, “Darlin’, can I help you?” Lena hopes so, saying she doesn’t know who else to turn to. She begs for news of Bianca, asking if she’s all right? Bianca obviously doesn’t want to speak to her, and she thought it best not to keep trying. When she sighs that she can’t give up on her, Myrtle agrees she’s right not to. Lena doesn’t want her to break any confidences, and knows how close she is to her, but hopefully asks if Bianca has said anything about her? Myrtle just shakes her head, and Lena says she’s been wracking her brain trying to work out what has caused this change in her, “Is there something that’s happened to her that I don’t know about?” As Myrtle says she’s afraid Lena may be right, Boyd comes in and says there are some policemen outside that want to talk to her. Detective Israel introduces himself, and tells Myrtle he has a warrant to search her house, and is going to ask them to clear the premises. She asks what this is about, and is told that her living room is a crime scene—his forensics team needs to search for evidence. Myrtle tells them to come in, and the team immediately starts shooting pictures and taping off the area. Boyd and Lena ask if she knows what’s going on, and Myrtle exclaims, “My god, it happened here!”

Myrtle watches the technicians anxiously; Boyd says they’re trashing the whole house, but she absently tells him, “Oh, let them!” He asks what’s going on, adding that he heard the detective asking questions about Bianca’s old room. Lena asks if something happened to Bianca? Is that why these people are here? Myrtle tells them both there’s something that they have to know, because she knows how much they love her. Lena cries out, “Oh, no, please don’t let this be!” Boyd says Myrtle is scaring them, and urges her to just tell them what happened, “Whatever it is, it’s going to be okay.” Myrtle hopes so, but can’t see how it could be. She tells them the policemen are in there looking for evidence, because a terrible crime happened in her house. “To Bianca?” Lena gasps. Myrtle says yes; she takes Lena’s hand as she tells her the crime was rape. Stunned, Lena asks who, “Don’t tell me…” Myrtle says yes, it was Michael. Boyd curses and furiously kicks the bench on the stoop, as Myrtle wonders aloud how Bianca is ever going to be the same again? Lena blindly runs off and Boyd comforts Myrtle...

Lena goes to Erica’s penthouse, and wipes away her tears as she knocks at the door. Getting no answer, she tries the knob before calling out, “Bianca, it’s me, open up! Bianca, I need to see you!” The tears flow as she says she knows what has happened, and she’s so sorry! She sobs that Bianca doesn’t have to let her in, but she needs to see her face for just half a minute, “I love you! I love you more than ever now!”

Bianca glides down the stairs of the boarding house and approaches a beaming Lena. I was able to peg this as a fantasy before the picture had completely faded in from black. Lena and Bianca do the daytime lesbian face-touching thing instead of what straight people would be allowed to do. If this were Kendall and Aidan, they’d be ramming their tongues down each others throats by now.

Oh, sorry. Mentioning Kendall, Aidan and tongues totally dragged my mind someplace else. Now where was I?

Ah, yes. Lianca. They’re each wearing their commitment rings as Myrtle, Boyd and Maggie are there to see them off on the whirlwind European tour.

Myrtle snaps Lena out of her fantasy. Lena is beyond desperate to learn what is wrong with Bianca. Boyd comes through the front door, reporting that there are a bunch of cops out front with a search warrant. The arriving detective’s statement that her living room is a crime scene is a red flag as Myrtle realizes what transpired. Poor Boyd and Lena have no clue what’s going on, though...

Boyd is being pissy that the cops are trashing the house. Myrtle doesn’t care. Pieces are put together by Boyd and Lena and they start to panic about what they don’t know. Myrtle finally tells them. Lena about chokes on her anguish while Boyd kicks the bench with rage. I’m trying not to stare TOO much at his a** in this time of sorrow. But I’m dirrty. Lena runs off...

Lena arrives at the unguarded front door of the Kane penthouse (I know, I said I’d quit harping about the guards but old habits die hard). Lena pounds and pounds on the door but, no one being home, nobody answers. Lena proceeds to have a nervous breakdown against that door. Aw, Olga kicked that scene out of the park...

From Lianca Recaps

Bianca, in a blowsy, sleeves white dress, steps slowly down the stairs at Myrtle's. As she reaches the landing, she turns and smiles. Lena, standing in the living room, blinks and beams up at her. Hee, it's totally geeky. And Lena is wearing the strangest sweater vest. It's beige, with these weird cheese-puff-shaped figures running in a diagonal pattern all over it, and it has one of those false collars that makes it look like she also has on a yellow, v-neck, sleeveless polo on underneath. Anyway. Binks walks down the rest of the steps grinning, and when she reaches the bottom, she goes to Lena (who has moved to the end of the staircase) and strokes the side of her face with her right hand. Lena takes it in her left hand, and Bianca raises her own left hand, on which she wears Lena's commitment ring (heh—those rings appeared the day of the rehearsal so, technically, "three days ago"), and closes it around Lena's. "You ready?" Lena says. "Yes," Binks grins. Lena kisses her hand as we see a close-up of their clasped, be-ringed hands.

"Now, chickens, off you go, and have fun!" says Myrtle, who appears with an enthusiastic Maggie and Boyd, who wheels forward a rolling suitcase. They all wish them a good time and give them their love. As Bianca and Lena leave hand-in-hand, we hear Myrtle's voice again: "Darlin', can I help you?" Lena snaps out of her reverie. She's still at Myrt's, same clothes. "Oh, yes," she stammers. "Yes, at least I hope so. Myrtle, I don't know who else to turn to." She wants Myrt to tell her about Bianca; is she okay? "Haven't you talked to her?" wonders Myrtle. "No," Lena says, sounding defeated. "I thought it best if I didn't keep trying; uh . . . she doesn't want to speak to me, obviously." She sighs, and changes her tone. "But I can't give up on her, I just can't." Myrtle thinks she's "right not to." Lena continues: "I don't want you to break any confidences, but I know how close you are to her. Has she said anything to you? About me?" she says, shrugging a little. Myrtle shakes her head gently and crosses. Lena exhales; she's been "wracking [her] brain" trying to figure out what's wrought such a change in Binks. She sighs again in exasperation and asks if Myrtle might know of anything that had happened that she doesn't know about. Weird, it's almost as if "yesterday's" confrontation in Maggie's room hadn't happened. She might mention, at least, that Binks has been acting so crazy she thought the freaking Hot Polish Fox would believe that she had thrown her over in favor of Maggie Mid-Term McScandal—who coined the HPF's nickname, after all. And come to think of it, given said confrontation, it's odd that Maggie would appear so chipper in her fantasy. Hee hee. Maybe Lena knows that a BFF of Binks is an F of hers.

Anyway. "I'm afraid you may be right," Myrtle says grimly. Lena's eyes get huge: "So there's something?" Myrtle looks ready to spill, but Boyd comes in the front door and announces confusedly that there are some policemen outside who want to talk to her. A plainclothesman with a corny accent introduces himself as Detective Israel, produces a search warrant, and asks Myrtle to vacate the premises. Mr. Mosad explains that her living room is a crime scene and that the forensics team needs to search it. "Oh, dear Lord," Myrtle whispers, but allows the team inside. Lena and Boyd are confused. "Oh, my God," Myrtle says, "my God, it . . . it happened here."...

At the PVPD, Jack breaks the hug with Erica and gestures for them to go back into Anna's office. Once they're both inside, he closes the door and says, "We will fix this." "Really?" Erica sniffles. "Fix it? Can you take us back to before Michael Cambias did this horrible thing? Can you get Frons and McTavish fired and have the next head writer make the whole thing into a bad dream?" "No, I can't do that," Jack replies. Dammit! "But we can get justice for Bianca." Maybe on another show, you mean. Erica tells him that she knows why he wants to rip Asshat to pieces and that she herself fantasizes about strangling him with her bare hands (wouldn't it be easier to rip his jugular with one of her talons?), and when she does, Michael knows he's dying because of what he did to Bianca. Jack tells her that they can't let their hatred of Michael poison them. "I know that," she replies. "I know having these thoughts about Michael is torturing us again, and it's, it's making me feel so angry and so helpless, but that's all I have right now." There's a beat or two, and then Jack says that that's not true, because she has Bianca, and "getting her through this is going to be tough enough, so you better save yourself for that." Of course, Erica says, crossing to him; "of course I'm going to think only of that." Jack suddenly realizes that that's what Erica "came to see [him] about" the day after the wedding, i.e., "yesterday," although they don't call it that; why didn't she just tell him then? "Because . . . you wouldn't let me," Erica says defensively. Jack agrees that he was angry, but she should have explained nevertheless. "No, you know something I learned something very valuable," she says. "I learned that as much as we love each other—and we do—that, uh, you can never really trust me, can you?" Will deVry? Did you watch this scene, grasshopper? Take some lessons from Confucci about the proper placement and treatment of verbalized pauses. Jackson stares at Erica for a half a beat before suggesting that they not "do this now." "No," Erica replies, her hand lightly raised in a stop sign, "the fact is, I can't count on you either. And so probably, I will have to get Bianca through this whole thing all by myself." Jack passionately guarantees her that she won't have to do it alone: "You know that I would do anything—anything—for Bianca." Erica knows, and moves into his embrace again. She breathes that she wants them to be able to "put [their] differences aside" for Bianca's sake. He says they will, and apologizes for not listening when she came to see him. They stand silently for a few moments, and then he declares that he'll do whatever he has to for Binks. Erica tells him that Binks really needs him; despite having kept quiet about it for so long, she needs both of them, "all of [them] now, more than ever. You know. Except Lena." Jack wonders why Binks waited so long to say anything. "For us," Erica answers. Jack is incredulous for a second, and then he remembers the wedding. "She wanted us to have a perfect wedding," Erica says. Jack realizes that that means that Bianca's been carrying it around "for weeks"—again with the return to a real calendar. Never mind that we've seen only about a week's worth of days pass since Voldemort. Just then, Anna comes in, apologizes, and gives Jack Bianca's statement...





ALL GAY RE-CAP

This all gay recap is by C.K..
Read all the All Gay Re-caps at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheAllGayRecap/.

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.



PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Boyd was horrified to learn what had happened.
Boyd: Michael Cambiass is a *(^%$. OK, I'm a good looking guy, I'm loyal to my friends and I just proved I'm in great physical shape. I almost kicked over the boarding house. Why don't I have a storyline of my own? Why aren't the Fusion girls chasing after me? I'd even settle for Mia or Simone if it would get me some air time.

Kendall welcomed Michael to his apartment.
Kendall: I'm so glad you're out of jail. Here, have a seat.
Michael: Owwwww! This snake just bit me.
Snake: Blecchhhhh! Ewwwwww!
Michael: I feel sick. The room is getting dark.
Snake: I feel sick. The room is getting dark.
Michael: I'm in terrible pain. I think I'm dying.
Snake: I'm in terrible pain. I think I'm dying. Call my agent.
Kendall: Michael's dead.
:::Cheers erupt from the audience::::The sun breaks through the clouds::::Church bells ring::::
Kendall: Too bad it was only a fantasy.
:::::Sobs erupt from the audience::::A slow sad rain begins to fall:::::Church bells grow silent as the land weeps:::::
Snake: Hey, at least I'm still alive. I'm the best newbie this show has hired in a long time.
Aidan: Kendall, whot are yew dewing in Moichal's apartment?
Kendall: Nothing. I'm certainly not planning to kill him or anything. And whatever you do, don't sit on the couch.
Aidan: Blimey! It's a snike! Oi'll ave to kill im.
Lizzie: :::sob::::That was the only snake I ever really loved. :::sob::::
Aidan: Kendall, yew can't troi to kill Moichal. Oi'll andcuff yew to me arm if yew don't promise me yew'll stop plotting tew dew the bloke in.
Kendall: Oh please, you don't carry handcuff's around with you.
Aidan: Yes Oi dew. Mowreen loiked it a little kinky if yew know whot Oi mean.
Kendall: All right. I won't try to kill him. But hang on to the handcuffs. Maybe we can find something to do with them.

Lizzie: This is an awfully short recap but I just don't think I can make fun of the rest of the show. It was too serious. I wonder if I'm going to have to stop writing parodies for a while.
Juan Pablo: Do not worry my lovely one. I will be on tomorrow.
Simone: So will I. I'm sure Mia and I will do one of those lame sexiest man promos for you.
Carlos: Even if I'm not on you could always have someone say that I'm hot. I miss those days when you had that in the recaps every day.
Brooke: Maybe you could make up a whole story for me and recap it. The writers don't seem to have any ideas for me.
Adam: Me either. I'd be glad to appear in a recap once in a while. I don't know if the audience remembers that I'm still on the show.
Lizzie: Thanks guys. I'll keep you all in mind.



QUOTES

Jack: You're dead, you b*****! You're dead, you hear me? You're dead!

Myrtle: Now, chickens, off you go, and have fun!

Man: I'm Detective Israel. I have a warrant to search your house. Now, I'm going to ask you to clear the premises.
Myrtle: What is this about?
Det. Israel: Your living room is a crime scene, and my forensics team needs to search for evidence.

Kendall: I guess you're not the only snake who lives here.

Kendall: Bye-bye, Michael. You're dead. Dead. Who's the winner now?

Kendall: Michael's in jail.
Aidan: That doesn't mean you should break into his apartment.

Aidan: What is it now, Kendall, huh? More poisonous flowers, or did you short-circuit his toaster?

Jack: We got to have better than this because right now we got nothing.

Maggie: I was thinking. We should go away together, just you and me. What do you think?
Bianca: Yeah, that sounds great.
Maggie: Ok. How about Australia? You know, I heard it was fantastic there.
Bianca: Yeah, and big.
Maggie: Very big. Beautiful beaches. I surf. Did I ever tell you that?
Bianca: No.
Maggie: Well, then we're going to have to go because then I can prove to you that I'm a champion surfer.

Lena: Bianca? Bianca, it's me. Open up. Bianca, I need to see you. I know what happened. Oh, God. I'm so sorry. Bianca, please just let me see your face. Just for a minute, or just for half a minute, please. Bianca! Just tell me you're ok, ok? Just -- you don't have to open the door. Just let me hear your voice. Bianca! Bianca. Listen, I -- I love you! I love you more than ever now!

Kendall: Oh, my God, Aidan, you killed him.

Aidan: How many poisonous snakes have been bought in this part of the country by a young, beautiful woman with curly, brown hair?

Aidan: However we feel, we have to play this smart. I can't punch him to death, and you can't poison him with flowers.

Aidan: Oh, I don't need that. All I need is a pair of handcuffs.

Aidan: That's too bad because I thought being trapped with you 24/7 would have been an unending delight.

Jack: You read the report. Bianca -- she cleaned up the crime scene, she burned her clothes. We have no rape kit and no photographs taken after the rape at the scene of the crime.

David: How the h*** am I going to tell her this?

Jack: Oh, my God. Oh, not Bianca. No.
Anna: I took her statement this morning, Jack.
Erica: We all thought that Cambias would come after me again, or Kendall, but he hunted Bianca down and he found her alone and locked her in, and he raped her.
Anna: Jack, no! Wait, Jack --
Jack: You're dead, you b*****! You're dead, you hear me? You're dead!
Officer: Come on, come on.
Michael: What is this? Does this look like impartial justice to anybody here?
Jack: You want partial justice?
Anna: That's enough! Stop!
Michael: What about you, Chief Devane? Huh? Is this part of your routine, too?
Anna: Get him out of here.
Michael: You know what, this is --
Anna: Get him out of here now.
Michael: This is so bogus. Come on. I am being framed for something that never happened.
Anna: Get out.
Jack: Yeah.
Anna: Jack! Ok, ok, ok, sorry. Come on. Stop it, stop it! All right, we're fine now. I just got done telling Aidan not to give Cambias any excuse to call himself a victim because that way he walks. Our job is to put him away.
Jack: You don't tell me what our job is. I know what our job is.
Anna: I have to tell you what our job is. I know this is very hard for you. It's hard for me. Just calm down.
Jack: Just give me the police report and anything else you've got. Please.
Anna: Are you all right?
Jack: Yes, I'm fine. I'm fine, Anna. I promise you, I'm fine. Just get me what I need, all right?
Anna: You'll stay?
Jack: Go get him.

Maggie: Go, go, go! We love you.
Bianca: We love you, too.
Maggie: Have a wonderful time.
Myrtle: Bye-bye.
Bianca: Bye.
Myrtle: Darling, can I help you?
Lena: Oh, yes. Yes, at least I hope so. Myrtle, I don't know who else to turn to.
Myrtle: What is it?
Lena: Tell me about Bianca. Is she all right?
Myrtle: Haven't you talked to her?
Lena: No. I thought it best not to keep trying. She doesn't want to speak to me, obviously. But I can't give up on her. I just can't.
Myrtle: I think you're right not to.
Lena: I don't want you to break any confidences, but I know how close you are to her. Has she said anything to you about me? You know, I've been racking my brain trying to work out what it is that's caused this change in her. Do you know anything, Myrtle? Has something happened that I don't know about?
Myrtle: I'm afraid you may be right.
Lena: So there is something?

Maggie: Bianca? I'm sorry. Did you have another nightmare?
Bianca: Yeah. He was here again. He won't leave me alone.
Maggie: They're not getting better?
Bianca: No, they're not. I can't take those pills that David prescribed anymore. They're -- they just make everything so much more real.
Maggie: Ok, well, you just won't take them anymore.
Bianca: Then I'm not going to sleep at all.
Maggie: It's going to be ok. Everything's going to be ok. Michael Cambias was just arrested, so he won't --
Bianca: Michael Cambias was just arrested. That means that there's just going to be more questions. More people are going to want to know every single detail from that night.
Maggie: You relax, ok? Just take -- take a deep breath, ok?
[Music plays]
Bianca: I hate this.
Maggie: I know.
Bianca: I mean, not just for me. I hate the pain in my mother's eyes. It's her nightmare come to life.
Maggie: Yes, but remember what she said. She wants you to fight and she wants to do it with you, for your sake and hers.
Bianca: Yeah, well, of course she said that, Maggie. What else was she going to say?
Maggie: It makes sense.
Bianca: Nothing makes sense.
Maggie: It seems to me the worst thing that you could possibly do is to hold on to all of this. Your mother -- she lived with her secret for years. She's still living with it.
Bianca: Yes, and I've brought it all back for her.
Maggie: That's not how it works. You have to get rid of this. You have to cut it away. And your mother -- she's telling you the way to do that is to speak up and don't be afraid, to do what she wasn't able to do.
Bianca: I can't believe that she was 14 years old.
Maggie: Yes, but she lived through it. Look at this wonderful, brilliant life that she's had after being through all of that. And that's because she's strong, and you inherited that strength through her. You did.
[Knock on door]
Maggie: It's ok. Just sit. I'll get it.
Bianca: Ok.
Maggie: Ok.
David: Hey.
Maggie: Hi.
Bianca: It's time, isn't it?
David: Yeah. I know this is going to be hard.
Bianca: David, you have no idea.
David: But it is important, Bianca. We need to make sure you're ok.
Bianca: I know.
David: And the sooner the better.
Bianca: I know. I just don't know if I can do this.
Maggie: Come on. I'm going to be with you, ok?
Bianca: Ok. All right, let's go.

***** (clip d) [Jack and Erica make Bianca's rape all about them (no Lena)]

[amc030818d starts]
Jack: We will fix this.
Erica: Really? Fix it? Can you take us back to before Michael Cambias did this horrible thing?
Jack: No, I can't do that, but we can get justice for Bianca.
Erica: Yeah. Look, I understand why you went after Michael Cambias, and I understand why you want to tear him apart. I shut my eyes and I see myself just strangling him with my bare hands, but I'll tell you what -- every time I do that, he knows why he's dying. He knows he's dying because of what he did to my little girl.
Jack: Yeah, but we can't let our hatred for him poison us.
Erica: I know that. I know having these thoughts about Michael is torturing us again, and it's making me feel so angry and so helpless, but that's all I have right now.
Jack: No, that's not true. You have Bianca. And getting her through this is going to be tough enough, so you better save yourself for that.
Erica: Well, of course that's all that matters now. And of course Bianca is the most important thing in all this, and of course I'm going to think only of that.
Jack: Wait a minute. All this is what you came to see me about. Erica, why didn't you just tell me when you were there?
Erica: Because you wouldn't let me.
Jack: You're right. I was angry with you. But why didn't you just explain to me what was going on?
Erica: You know something, I learned something very valuable. I learned that as much as we love each other -- and we do --
Jack: Yes.
Erica: That you can never really trust me, can you?
Jack: You know what, let's not do this now, ok?
Erica: No. The fact is I can't count on you, either. And so probably I will have to get Bianca through this whole thing all by myself.
Jack: Oh, now, you listen to me for just a second. You are not going to have to do this alone, I guarantee you. All right? You know that I will do anything, anything for Bianca.
Erica: I know.
Jack: Don't forget that.
Erica: Oh, Jack, I just want us to be able to put our differences aside -- you know, just for now. You know, for Bianca.
Jack: We will. We will. I'm sorry I didn't listen to you that day. I am sorry, and I -- please forgive me.
Erica: Yeah.
Jack: Whatever I have to do for Bianca, I'll do it.
Erica: She needs you now. You know, she needs you so much. I mean, even though she even kept quiet about all this, she really needs both of us. She needs both of us now more than ever.
Jack: Why -- why did she do that? Why did she wait so long to say anything?
Erica: For us.
Jack: For us? Oh, the wedding.
Erica: She wanted us to have the perfect wedding.
Jack: My God, that means that she's been carrying this load around all by herself for weeks, alone.
Anna: I'm sorry.
Jack: No, it's all right.
Anna: It's Bianca's statement.

***** (clip e) [Kendall's fantasy about Fang biting Michael (no Lena)]

[amc030818e starts]
Michael: What the h*** are you doing here?
Kendall: I could ask you the same thing. I guess your lawyers worked an even bigger miracle for you this time.
Michael: Of course I got out on bail. They know who I am, who my father is.
Kendall: Welcome home, Michael.
Michael: Uh-huh. You know, Erica and her private lawman think they can railroad me. What, did they send you over here to gather some evidence or something?
Kendall: No. I came here all on my own.
Michael: Uh-huh, really? So, what, are you thinking of switching sides?
Kendall: Look, Michael, I know I've made a lot of mistakes, and my biggest one was letting Erica use me. I need you to forgive me.
Michael: Really? So what's in it for me?
Kendall: Well, why don't you just sit down here and relax and let me make you a drink and show you. Scotch on the rocks, right?
Michael: Well, I think I'm beginning to like this new attitude of yours.
Kendall: Mmm, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Michael: Ow! What the h*** is this? Did you put this thing here?
Kendall: Well, I guess you're not the only snake who lives here.
Michael: Ow. Is this thing poisonous?
Kendall: Hmm.
Michael: Oh --
Kendall: That would be a yes.
Michael: My God, what is happening?
Kendall: You're dying, Michael.
Michael: Help me.
Kendall: Bye-bye, Michael. You're dead.
[Michael coughs]
Kendall: Dead. Who's the winner now?
Aidan: What are you doing?

***** (clip f) [Aidan finds Fang (no Lena)]

Kendall: Aidan! God, it's not like there's any danger here. Michael's in jail.
Aidan: That doesn't mean you should break into his apartment. Why did you?
Kendall: Why don't you just -- will you just go, ok?
Aidan: No, I am not leaving here until you tell me what you're up to.
Kendall: Aidan, please -- would you please just leave?
Aidan: What is it now, Kendall, huh? More poisonous flowers, or did you short-circuit his toaster?
Kendall: Well, you certainly don't have a very high opinion of me.
Aidan: I have a very high opinion of you. I just know what you're capable of. So, what is it now?
Kendall: I'm not going to tell you.
Aidan: All right, I'm going to find out for myself, then.
Kendall: No, no, listen -- Aidan, listen, whatever Michael has coming to him, he deserves it, ok? Now, will you please, please just go? Aidan, Aidan, wait! Aidan, please.
[amc030818f-inc2 starts]
Aidan: If you're not leaving, Kendall, neither am I.
Kendall: Oh, fine. You know what? I'll go. I'm going.
[Aidan finds the snake and gasps]
Kendall: Oh, my God, Aidan. Aidan, look out! Aidan, Aidan, look out!

***** (clip g) [Jack reads Bianca's statement (no Lena)]

[amc030818g starts]
Anna's voice: I know this is difficult.
Bianca's voice: I've told you everything more than once.
Anna's voice: Maybe you've forgotten something, some detail. What happened after you stopped dancing?
Bianca's voice: That was when I lost my temper. I shouldn't have. Maybe if I hadn't --
Anna's voice: No, no. You had every right. What happened then?
Bianca's voice: He'd been so disgusting, so insulting. I insulted him back. Then he came at me. He was all over me. I tried to fight him. I tried as hard as I could, but he kept coming back at me, pulling me toward him until I was so close to him, and I could feel his breath. And I was fighting all the time, but it didn't do any good. Where was my strength? What happened to me? Why didn't I stop him?
Erica: It's horrible, isn't it?
Anna's voice: Let's go over what you did after he left.
Bianca's voice: I cleaned up. I put everything back in order. Then I changed clothes. I took the ones I was wearing to the park and burned them.
Anna's voice: Are you sure you didn't call anyone?
Bianca's voice: Yes, I'm sure.
Anna's voice: But you said you had cuts and bruises.
Bianca's voice: Yes, on my shoulder.
Anna's voice: And you never thought of going to the hospital to get examined?
Bianca's voice: Yes, I thought of it. I thought I would go later.
Anna's voice: Later?
Bianca's voice: I didn't want to think about it then. I wanted it to all go away. I thought that I would feel differently later, but I never did. Then I thought it was too late. Maybe nobody would believe me. And also, my mother was getting married. She was so happy. I didn't want to make her sad.
Jack: What else have you got?
Anna: Well, that's it.
Jack: Did Bianca see a doctor?
Anna: She's being examined by David today.
Jack: Today.
Anna: Mm-hmm.
Jack: So all you've got is Bianca's statement. Nothing else.
Anna: Well, yeah, that's all we have.
Jack: You know what that means, don't you?
Erica: What?
Jack: We got to have better than this because right now we got nothing.

***** (clip h) [Jack tells Anna that they have a weak case (no Lena)]

[amc030818h starts]
Erica: Jack.
Jack: Anna, why did you wait so long?
Anna: You know why I didn't get Bianca's statement till this morning.
Jack: I'm not talking about Bianca, I'm talking about me. Why did you wait so long to bring me into this? Why didn't you bring me into this before you arrested Cambias?
Erica: This is not Anna's fault. Anna had Michael Cambias arrested the minute she knew what he did. And the reason she didn't bring you into it is because you were off in Atlantic City.
Jack: So this arrest was made solely on Bianca's word.
Anna: When a woman says that she's been raped, I tend to believe her, and I arrest the person that committed the crime.
Erica: Are you saying you don't think that Bianca's word was good enough? Would you rather Anna had let Michael Cambias go free on the streets so he could hurt other women?
Jack: Look, with what we have right now, that is exactly what might happen.

***** (clip i) [Lena finds out Bianca was raped]

[amc030818i starts]
Boyd: God, Myrtle, they're trashing your whole house.
Myrtle: Oh, let them.
Boyd: Let them? Myrtle, what's going on here? I saw that detective asking you questions about Bianca's old room. What's that about?
Lena: What? Has something happen to Bianca? Is that why these people are here?
Myrtle: Listen, there's something that you have to know. Because I know how much you love her.
Lena: Oh, no, no, no.
Boyd: Myrtle, it's ok.
Lena: Please don't let it be. Myrtle, they said a crime scene. What crime?
Boyd: Wait, hold on, hold on. Myrtle, please. Come on, you're scaring Lena and me. Just tell us what happened. Ok, whatever it is, it's going to be ok.
Myrtle: I hope so, but I can't see how it could be.
Boyd: Come on.
Myrtle: The policemen are in there looking for evidence because a terrible crime happened in my house.
Lena: To Bianca?
Myrtle: Yes, Lena, darling. The crime was rape.
Boyd: No.
Lena: Oh, no. What? Who? Oh, don't tell me --
Myrtle: Yes. Yes, it was Michael.
Boyd: No. No! D*** him!
Myrtle: Is our Bianca ever going to be the same again?

***** (clip j) [Bianca gets ready for her check-up with David (no Lena)]

[amc030818j starts]
Nurse: Here we go.
Bianca: What?
Nurse: I'll need you to take off all your clothes and slip this on.
Bianca: Ok.
Nurse: Would you like me to help you?
Bianca: No. I have a friend here. She just stepped out. Here she is.
Nurse: Good, good. Dr. Hayward will be in as soon as you're ready.
Maggie: Thank you.
Nurse: Mm-hmm.
Maggie: So, I couldn't remember what you wanted, coffee or tea, so I just got both.
Bianca: I don't remember, either. I don't think that I want either one. Could you get rid of them?
Maggie: Yeah, sure.
Bianca: I -- I have to --
Maggie: You have to get into that?
Bianca: Mm-hmm.
Maggie: Ok. It's ok. Ok? You sure? Ok, I'm going to go get David.
Bianca: Ok.
David: All right. Let me explain how we're going to go about this, ok? Now, first I'm going to draw some blood so that we can check for sexually transmitted diseases. After we're done with that, I'm going to have to perform a physical examination of the pelvic area, just to check for tears or bruises. Now, you might experience a little discomfort, but I'm going to finish as quickly as possible, and you can stop me at any time. Ok? All right.
Bianca: Ok.
David: But for now I just need you to sit up here, lay back, try to relax, and let me have your arm.

***** (clip k) [Bianca gets her check-up with David (no Lena)]

[amc030818k starts]
David: Did that hurt? Want to take a break?
Bianca: No, I'm ok.
David: All right, we're almost finished here.
Bianca: You can talk to me now.
Maggie: Oh. Oh, ok. You know, I was thinking. We should go away together, just you and me. What do you think?
Bianca: Yeah, that sounds great.
Maggie: Ok. How about Australia? You know, I heard it was fantastic there.
Bianca: Yeah, and big.
Maggie: Very big. Beautiful beaches. I surf. Did I ever tell you that?
Bianca: No.
Maggie: Well, then we're going to have to go because then I can prove to you that I'm a champion surfer.
Bianca: Ok.
David: That's it. All through here. So how do you feel? Any pain? Discomfort?
Bianca: Uh -- no. I feel fine.
David: Good. All right, look, why don't you put on your clothes. I'll be back in a few minutes and we'll talk.
Bianca: Wait, David. Tell me -- am I ok?

***** (clip l) [Lena breaks down at Erica's Penthouse door]

[amc030818l starts]
Lena: Bianca? Bianca, it's me. Open up. Bianca, I need to see you. I know what happened. Oh, God. I'm so sorry. Bianca, please just let me see your face. Just for a minute, or just for half a minute, please. Bianca! Just tell me you're ok, ok? Just -- you don't have to open the door. Just let me hear your voice. Bianca! Bianca. Listen, I -- I love you! I love you more than ever now!

***** (clip m) [Aidan kills Fang (no Lena)]

[amc030818m-inc1 starts]
Kendall: Oh, my God, Aidan, you killed him.
Aidan: What would you rather me have done, let it kill me?
Kendall: No, it was supposed to kill Michael when he got home from jail.
Aidan: Are you that stupid? You want to spend the rest of your life behind bars?
Kendall: No, I'm not stupid, ok? This would've been a freak accident. There's no way in h*** they could possibly trace that snake to me.
Aidan: No? Where did you get it from?
Kendall: I got it from this store that I know far away from here. I paid for it in cash, and I didn't give them my real name.
Aidan: So, how many poisonous snakes have been bought in this part of the country by a young, beautiful woman with curly, brown hair?
Kendall: I don't know. I don't know.
Aidan: You don't think it would take the police a long time to put two and two together and maybe trace it back to you?
Kendall: I don't care, ok? I'll go to jail if it means Bianca never has to see Michael's face again.
Aidan: So how do you know of a store that sells poisonous snakes in the first place?
Kendall: My brother told me about it once.
Aidan: Your brother?
Kendall: Trey.
Aidan: Right, Trey. The one that's in prison. You two are quite the pair.
Kendall: Well, we both do spring from the loins of Richard Fields, rapist.
Aidan: So that means you want to rid the world of all rapists?
Kendall: Not all, but at least Michael.
Aidan: You know, no one blames you for bringing Michael Cambias to Pine Valley.
Kendall: I know that.
Aidan: And even Erica agreed with me down at the police station that no one finds you responsible.
Kendall: What did she say?
Aidan: She said that Michael is accountable for his own actions. No one blames you, including Erica.
Kendall: Did she really say that?
Aidan: Yep. Those were her exact words.
Kendall: Well, I don't care. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Michael has to pay for what he did to Bianca, and going to prison -- Aidan, going to prison is completely too good for him. I mean, can't you understand that?
Aidan: Yeah, I do. And everybody else does. I mean, I even took a punch at Michael at the police station myself.
Kendall: You did?
Aidan: Yeah, and I was quite proud of myself [amc030818m-inc1 ends] until Anna pulled me aside and told me that's definitely not going to help the case against Michael.
Kendall: Yeah, the case against Michael.
Aidan: Look, however we feel, we have to play this smart. I can't punch him to death, and you can't poison him with flowers.
Kendall: I can think of something.
Aidan: We have to let Anna do her job because she's very good at it. She also said that Michael Cambias is counting on us to -- people like us to lose it. That's how he's going to get off. His lawyers will twist it around and make him look like the victim, and he'll walk.
Kendall: No, his lawyers will probably get him off anyway. That's why I'm the one who has to stop him.
Aidan: Have you not listened to a word that I've been saying?
Kendall: Well, then why don't you try saying something that makes sense, please.
Aidan: All right, then. I will. Kendall, either you forget this personal vendetta against Michael Cambias, or I'll become your personal shadow.
Kendall: Go ahead, waste your time and track my every move. Use your d***** surveillance equipment. See if I care.
Aidan: Oh, I don't need that. All I need is a pair of handcuffs.
Kendall: For what?
Aidan: To handcuff your wrist to mine until Michael gets put away for good.
Kendall: You don't mean that.
Aidan: Why don't you try me.
Kendall: Oh, ok, and you just always happen to walk around with a pair of handcuffs in your pocket.
Aidan: Not always. Only when you're up to no good. So what's it going to be, Kendall? Going to waste your life on this sicko, or are we to be joined at the wrist?
Kendall: All right. Ok, fine. You're right, ok? Much as I'm fond of you, I can think of a few seconds in the day when I'd rather not be trapped beside you.
Aidan: Well, that's too bad because I thought being trapped with you 24/7 would have been an unending delight.
Kendall: Oh, yeah? You would've really done it, wouldn't you?
Aidan: I'm fond of you, too.
Kendall: Anyway, you're right. And when you're right, you're right.
Aidan: Are you sure, or is this just a snow job?
Kendall: Oh, come on. This thing that I planned, it would've never really worked anyway. It was stupid and it was dangerous, and I'm sorry. Sorry, Aidan. I'm really sorry. God, I don't know what I would've done if that snake actually bit you.
Aidan: There's only one thing you could've done, and that's suck the poison out of my punctured wound and hoped that we'd have both survived.
Kendall: Ok. I would have. I mean, you're the only real friend that I have.
Aidan: Yeah, right back at you, kid.
Kendall: Do you really think that Anna and Jack will be able to make those charges against Michael stick?
Aidan: Well, it's our best shot.
Kendall: Ok. No more snakes, no more stupid tricks, no more funny games. I won't do anything to jeopardize the legal state against Michael.

***** (clip n) [Jack bemoans the lack of evidence in the rape (no Lena)]

[amc030818n starts]
Jack: I know what it takes to get a conviction in a rape case, and we do not have it.
Erica: Jack, you just can't mean that.
Jack: You read the report. Bianca -- she cleaned up the crime scene, she burned her clothes. We have no rape kit and no photographs taken after the rape at the scene of the crime.
Anna: I sent forensics to Myrtle's as soon as I had Michael in custody.
Jack: Anna, you and I both know so much time has passed. They're not going to find a damned thing.
Erica: Are you saying that there's a chance that Michael Cambias might actually go free?
Jack: If all we have is Bianca's word -- yes, that's a very great possibility.
Anna: Well, Jack, we have to think of something. We can't just drop the charges because that's going to compromise any case you bring against him later.
Erica: Oh, my God. This just can't be real.
Jack: I have no intention of dropping the charges.
Anna: Good.
Jack: I'm going to build a solid case against Michael Cambias.
Erica: Jack, what do you think Bianca will say when she finds out that there is an actual chance that the man who did this to her might go away free? He might get away with this!
Jack: Erica, you're going to have to trust me. I'm going to do everything in my power. But right now what we have to do is we have to go talk to Bianca.

***** (clip o) [David is disturbed by something about Bianca's examination (no Lena)]

[amc030818o starts]
David: Send these to the lab right away. Tell them to put a rush on it.
Bianca: So tell me -- am I ok?
David: Bianca, I don't want you to worry, ok? Whatever those tests show, you and I are going to go over them together.
David: How the h*** am I going to tell her this?
