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.

The judge entered the courtroom.
Judge: Even though I find Michael Cambias to be a contemptable little rodent I have to drop the charges against him at this time. The charges could be filed again if further evidence is found. Or some of you good citizens of Pine Valley could start plotting to murder him.
Lena: Die you (*^$)@@$%&*** Die! :::
Judge: Ahh, contestant number one.
Lena rips Michael's head off and tosses it out the courthouse window where a group of workers on their lunch hour use it for a soccer ball.
Michael: That didn't happen.
Lizzie: Just wait.
Michael: You're all just jealous of me. But I don't care. I now own Chandler Enterprises. Nanny nanny boo boo.
Kendall: I don't believe it.
Greenlee: Me either. Is Simone moonlighting over there?
Boyd: He somehow buys Fusion, Enchantment and Chandler Enterprises even though his father cut him off and he lives in a cheap condo? This doesn't make any sense even for this show.
Myrtle: Oh well, the good news is that Adam Chandler was just added to the suspect list.
Maggie: What number is he?
Mia: 4978 I think.
Reporter: Mr. Cambias, was your father responsible for this take over? We all know that you're just a miserable little runt with no real business skills.
Michael: I did it all by myself. Why doesn't anyone respect me? Now excuse me while I ooze my way out of the courtroom.

Out in Vegas Ryan and Alexander watched as Michael was set free.
Ryan: Bummer. So you want to watch Days of Our Lives?
Alexander: :::grrggggghhhh::::
Ryan: Huh?
Alexander::::grabs chest::::isskkk:::::
Ryan: Oh, you want to play charades? OK.
Alexander::::grabs arm::::ackkkkggggg::::
Ryan: First word - sounds like.....
Heart monitor: Beeeeeeeeeeeppppp.
Ryan: Sounds like beeeeeppppp, hmmm, :::gasp:::: Medic! Get in here! This man's contract may be up.

Palmer and Adam were still conspiring in the woods.
Palmer: So the little slug took over your company with no cash or stock transfers.
Adam: Ridiculous isn't it. Probably the same writer who came up with the Sexiest Man contest.
Palmer: I heard that you and I were getting a lot of write in votes on that.
Adam: I wouldn't be surprised. So lets talk about our plans to destroy the cockroach Cambias.
Producer: What? Who let Palmer and Adam on again? Cut to commercial and then to a Sexiest Man promo. We don't want the audience to get used to this.

Later the Fusion girls went back to the office.
Mia: It's hard to get excited about our contest now.
Greenlee: I guess we know how the audience has felt all along.
Michael: Hello ladies. Ready to go to work.
The Fusion girls pushed Michael into a vat of lipstick ingredients and turned up the heat. He was boiled to death as part of their new line of lipcolor.
Michael: I'm really starting to think you don't like me.
Lizzie: Gee, what tipped you off?



LENAVERSE



'Well, Lena sweetie, if you won't kill Michael, then I guess I will have to. The ways of the Carny demand it.'


Lena is not going to let Michael hurt Bianca ever again
Gee, I wonder what that means...




QUOTES

Lena: I'll kill you, you son of a b****!

Michael: Ms. Kundera can't touch me. None of you can. You know what, the funny thing is each and every one of you has tried, but your pathetic attempts to take me down have failed. And you want to know why? Because I don't stop until I get what I want, and that day has finally arrived. My mission here in Pine Valley has been accomplished. First, I took over Fusion -- which by the way, ladies, was like taking candy from a baby. Then I set my sights on Enchantment. Mr. Larraby, I look forward to working with you. And to complete the trifecta, as of this morning, it appears as if Adam Chandler can take his retirement to that little trout stream in Canada. I'm Chandler Enterprises' new C.E.O. So Iím sure you're wondering what that all means for you. Well, it means I own this town and everybody in it.

Boyd: I'd rather fry in hell than work for you, Cambias.
Michael: Bring your sunscreen.

Lena: Someone has to stop this man.
Kendall: Someone will.

Bianca: I'm not defeated. And neither is my mother. No matter what you do to us, we'll never be your victims.
Michael: Ooh, you are women, hear you roar.

Boyd: Maybe they missed something.
Lena: Boyd, what if they didn't? What if they let him go? I can't take that chance. I wonít.



TRANSCRIPT

Unverified in non-clip parts

***** (clip a) [Michael experiences the wrath of Lena]

[amc030825a starts]
Myrtle: That shameless devil.
Opal: Yeah. A public hanging would be too good for him.
Brooke: How can he live with what he did to Bianca?
Jack: Wayne, you and I both know that what happened here today had very little to do with justice.
Wayne: Well, my client will disagree.
Jack: Maybe you should tell your client that his days of freedom are numbered. We're going to be back here very soon for round two, and I guarantee you this time the verdict will be guilty.
Michael: Not going to happen, Jack.
Jack: Why don't you get him out of here before this crowd turns into a lynch mob.
Michael: You can't stand it, can you? As a matter of fact, none of you can stand the fact that I won and you lost and there's nothing you can do about it.
Lena: I'll kill you, you son of a b****! Let me go!
Wayne: Guard!

***** (clip b) [Lena is subdued and Michael does not press charges]

[amc030825b starts]
Boyd: Come on, Lena, you're only going to make things worse.
Lena: Sick, lying rapist!
Wayne: Guard, we got a problem here!
Boyd: Lena, stop it!
Lena: You're not fit to live! I'll kill you now!
Guard: All right, ma'am!
Boyd: Easy, easy!
Lena: You going to arrest me? You going to arrest me and let him go?
Wayne: No, no, no, no!
Anna: Nobody's getting arrested! Calm down!
Wayne: A roomful of witnesses who just heard you threaten my client.
Anna: Calm down. Everybody just take a breath. What's going on?
Michael: It's all right, it's all right. You can put those bracelets away.
Anna: What, you're not going to press charges?
Michael: Well, it's a waste of taxpayers' time and money, don't you think? Besides, Ms. Kundera can't touch me. None of you can. You know what, the funny thing is each and every one of you has tried, but your pathetic attempts to take me down have failed. And you want to know why? Because I don't stop until I get what I want, and that day has finally arrived. My mission here in Pine Valley has been accomplished. First, I took over Fusion -- which by the way, ladies, was like taking candy from a baby. Then I set my sights on Enchantment. Mr. Larraby, I look forward to working with you. And to complete the trifecta, as of this morning, it appears as if Adam Chandler can take his retirement to that little trout stream in Canada. I'm Chandler Enterprises' new C.E.O. So Iím sure you're wondering what that all means for you. Well, it means I own this town and everybody in it.
Tad: Congratulations.
Michael: Know what, why don't you listen up, Tad. Why don't you go tell your father that he should be warned. I'll be taking my seat on the hospital board of directors. See how well that sits with him.
Tad: Maybe you should think about getting out of here pretty soon before somebody lands you in the hospital.
Boyd: Yeah, you may want to check your back, because you're going to pay for what you did to Bianca, I promise you that.
Michael: Why don't you get back to the lab, Larraby. Time is money.
Boyd: I'd rather fry in hell than work for you, Cambias.
Michael: Bring your sunscreen.

***** (clip c) [Boyd tells Lena to calm down]

Boyd: Lena, believe me, [amc030825c-inc2 starts] we all hate Michael Cambias as much as you do.
Lena: The man's an animal. He can't be let free.
Boyd: Look, I know, ok? We got to hope it's temporary. Just leave it to Jack to find enough evidence to bury him. Meanwhile, getting yourself thrown in jail is not going to solve anything. You're just going to give Bianca something else to stress about.
Lena: I can't help that. Someone has to stop this man.
Kendall: Someone will.

***** (clip d) [Jack tells Bianca that Michael has been let free again (no Lena)]

[amc030825d starts]
Bianca: This is all my fault.
Erica: Bianca --
Bianca: If it hadn't have been for me, then you wouldn't have lost your company, Mom. You were so focused on helping me that you couldn't even watch your own back.
Erica: Honey, Enchantment is just a company.
Bianca: Enchantment is your life.
Erica: No, it's not. You are my life. I meant what I said. Enchantment can go to hell, and Michael Cambias right along with it.
Bianca: All right, well, then that means that he's won.
Erica: Michael Cambias has won nothing. Michael Cambias is about to go to prison, and he can't run a Fortune 500 company from behind bars.
Bianca: No, I guess you're right.
Erica: Soon -- very, very soon -- Michael Cambias will be in jail and out of our lives. Please just hold on to that thought.
Bianca: Ok. But what's taking so much time? I mean, shouldn't the judge have made a ruling by now?
Erica: Oh, honey, I am sure that it's not going to be much longer at all.
Bianca: Whoa, Mom? Are you ok?
David: Erica?
Erica: Yes. David, would you please tell my overprotective daughter that Iím just fine?
David: You know your mother, Bianca. No one bounces back like Erica Kane.
[Door opens]
Bianca: Well? Did the judge make her ruling?
Jack: David, could you give us just a few minutes alone, please?
David: Sure.
Erica: Jack? So did Judge Lampert set the trial date?
Jack: There isn't going to be a trial.
Erica: What? Why not?
Jack: Judge Lampert feels she needs more proof. Look, it isn't over. I will get that evidence for her, and she has ruled that once we do that, she'll reinstate the charges against Cambias.
Erica: Well, what does that mean, exactly? I mean, Michael Cambias -- are you saying that he's -- he's free?
Jack: For now.
Erica: Oh, my God! Oh, my God, what kind of a judge is this -- this Judge Lampert? She would rule in favor of a sadistic rapist? And what more evidence does she possibly need? She has Biancaís sworn testimony!
Bianca: I messed up, didn't I? I wasn't convincing on the stand, nobody believed what I said.
Jack: No, no, no. Now, you listen to me -- you did not mess up on the stand. You were amazing up there, and I know how difficult and how much courage it took to relive that nightmare in public.
Bianca: Yeah, well, it didn't do any good, did it? I mean, Michaelís free. That's what it means. The judge dismissed all the charges against him.
Jack: What it means is the judge needs more proof, and I will give it to her. I promise you that what you did on that stand today will count. Now, I need to get back to my office. But I want to stop by and see you later, ok?
Bianca: Ok.
Jack: Look at me. I love you.
Bianca: I love you, too.
Jack: Well, let's not ever forget that.
Bianca: Ok.
Erica: Jack? Did you mean what you said about being able to get more evidence against Michael Cambias or were you just saying that for Biancaís sake?
Jack: I've got to go. I'm sorry.
Erica: Sweetheart, don't you blame yourself. You were magnificent in that courtroom today. You were spectacular. You were so courageous. I'm so proud of you.
Bianca: It didn't do any good. And look what it did to you, Mom.
Erica: My sweetheart, watching you up on that stand, watching how brave you were, watching you face your fears head-on, that healed me in ways you will never be able to understand. I could never explain that to you.
[Michael enters the room]

***** (clip e) [Michael being his usual sadistic self (no Lena)]

[amc030825e starts]
Erica: You get the h*** out of here or Iíll call for the guard.
Michael: Ok, before you start crying rape, Erica, I think that we should, you know, set up a time to meet and talk business.
Erica: You're out of your mind.
Michael: Erica, we need to talk about your job description. Now that Iím head of Enchantment, you'll be taking orders from me.
Erica: The day I take orders from you, they'll be selling snow cones in hell -- and that's exactly where you can go, and you can take your company with you.
Michael: Erica, bitterness is not becoming of you. I don't see any reason why we can't find a way to find a creative co-existence together.
Bianca: Oh, you know what, my mother told you to go to hell.
Michael: And you always do what your mommy tells you, hmm? Telling bald-faced lies under oath? Tell me something, where exactly did your lies get you today? Lucky for both of you I have a forgiving nature. And as for my victory today --
Bianca: Um, sorry, but you did not win anything today.
Michael: Well, the judge ruled in my favor. How do you spell defeat, hmm?
Bianca: I'm not defeated. And neither is my mother. No matter what you do to us, we'll never be your victims.
Michael: Ooh, you are women, hear you roar.
Bianca: You know what, I don't care what the judge ruled today. God knows what you did, and you're going to be punished for it someday.
Michael: Hmm.
Erica: You get out.
Michael: Well, start packing up your office, Erica.
Erica: Are you all right, sweetheart?
Bianca: No, just the sight of him makes my stomach turn.
Erica: Of course it does. Ok, I'm going to find David, then Iíll find something to settle your stomach.
Bianca: No, please don't go, Mom. Really, I'm ok.
Erica: Are you sure?
Bianca: Yes. You know, what I really want is for you to go home and get some rest.
Erica: And leave you here alone? I don't think so.
Bianca: No, you know, Maggie is waiting for me, and we're going to hang out. So please, Mom, just go home, draw yourself a nice, long, hot bath, and be good to yourself so that I don't have to worry about you. Please.
Erica: All right. But I'll see you at home later?
Bianca: Yes, I won't be late.
Erica: Bianca, I want you to remember what your Uncle Jack said. We are going to find enough evidence to put Michael Cambias away. One way or another, Michael Cambias is going to be out of our lives.

***** (clip f) [Mary offers to take Jack to dinner (Lena in background)]

[amc030825f starts]
Jack: Bianca put herself in my hands. She trusted me [cut: I told her everything would be just fine. I let her down totally.
Greenlee: No, you did the best you could with what you had. Bianca knows that. She still believes in you. So do I.]
Mary: Jack? I'm so sorry about what happened today. I know Bianca must be devastated. If there's anything I could do -- maybe -- maybe the three of us could go out and have dinner and help take your mind off of things?

***** (clip g) [Lena won't allow Michael to continue harassing Bianca]

[amc030825g starts]
Boyd: There's got to be something out there that we can hammer Cambias with.
Myrtle: I don't see what, darling. I mean, those detectives have combed the house from top to bottom.
Boyd: Well, maybe they missed something.
Lena: Boyd, what if they didn't? What if they let him go? I can't take that chance. I wonít.
