From About All My Childr

Bianca sighs that she thought she could do this, and Lena offers to do it for her, “You want to tell me there’s no chance that you and I will ever be together again.” Bianca insists that’s not it—she doesn’t want to give up on them! Overjoyed, Lena says if there’s still hope for them, they will deal with whatever it is together! Bianca doesn’t know if they can. Lena says to look at all she’s survived and how strong she’s been, fighting to put everything Michael did behind her. Bianca tells Lena there’s a lot more she doesn’t know, “He got me pregnant.” She’s stunned that Lena knows, and asks if she was stalking her at the boathouse? Lena promises it was a coincidence; she’s been going to the boathouse every night to feel close to her. She didn’t think it was her place to say anything, and she was afraid Bianca might hate her for everything Michael did to her. Bianca wishes she hadn’t left before she told Maggie she doesn’t blame her for any of this.

Lena blames herself, and can only imagine how she must have felt terminating the pregnancy. Bianca sighs that it was the longest day of her life. Lena doesn’t want her to talk about it now and relive it, but Bianca says she doesn’t understand; the choice she made on that day is one she has to live with the rest of her life.

Lena doesn’t mean to downplay what she’s been through, but Bianca says the decision was overwhelming; having a baby alone at her age was something she never imagined. Lena asks if this is what she’s been afraid to tell her because she thought she’d disapprove? She doesn’t! She believes she did the right thing, and had to terminate the pregnancy—there was no other choice! Michael was a sick, twisted monster, and there’s no way she could have his baby! Seeing Bianca’s tears, Lena apologizes for upsetting her with all this talk about Michael and the baby. Bianca insists she’s all right, and Lena takes her hand as she says it feels so right, the two of them together, talking again. She suggests going out to dinner, but Bianca doesn’t think she can right now. Lena repeats that Bianca said she had hope for them; here they are, reaching out to each other, and she hopes this means a new beginning for them. Bianca can’t promise anything, and Lena agrees there’s no pressure. She tells Bianca to just remember that she loves her, and hold on to that. She leaves, and Bianca cries...

Maggie goes to her friend and asks what just happened? She wonders if it was a rage or hormones, or did things not go so well with Lena? Bianca says things went all right until she told her she had done the only thing she possibly could have by having the abortion.

She couldn’t tell her she was having the baby because she said that there was no way she could possibly have Michael Cambias’ baby! Maggie gently says it’s not too late to change her mind. Bianca insists she’s not going to change her mind because of what Lena feels; she’s going to have this baby and do it on her own. Maggie’s really sorry. Bianca is, too; she’s just beginning to see how difficult this is all going to be. Maggie reminds her she’s not going to be going at it by herself, “You are not getting rid of me!” Aidan comes over as the friends share a hug, and says the two of them look so gorgeous when they’re smiling! Bianca apologizes about her tirade, but Aidan thinks she was amazing and everyone got her message, “Michael Cambias hasn’t beaten you down.” Bianca smiles proudly as she nods.

Kendall goes back to her office, and tells Lena she needs a dirty trick, something really nasty to stop Ryan from making his claim on Michael’s estate. Lena suggests the always-nasty court fight, but Kendall needs something fast-acting. When Lena shrugs, Kendall tells her to lose the kid gloves—she knows she worked with Michael Cambias, “I know how down and dirty you can go!” Lena protests, “Not anymore,” but Kendall says she saved her life, and Lena owes her! Lena vows never to stoop that low again, but Kendall’s not asking her to sleep with anyone, “I need boardroom, not bedroom tricks!” Lena calls that blunt, but Kendall doesn’t have time for sensitive; she has to bring Ryan down, and she has to do it fast!

...Kendall insists Ryan is not going to beat her down; she will not be a two-time loser! He cannot just break their engagement, leave town and come back thinking he can steal her blind! Lena has an idea, but it’s risky. Kendall doesn’t give a damn, and tells her to bring on the risk, “I want to hit Ryan where it hurts the most!”

ON THE NEXT ALL MY CHILDREN:
Bianca tells Aidan it’s none of his business who killed Michael Cambias!
Jack asks David if the other set of prints on this gun were Erica’s?
Lena asks Kendall, “You really do want Ryan Lavery out of your life, don’t you?”
Greenlee goes to Ryan’s room again; when he asks what she really wants to say, Greenlee throws a punch!

From Soap Slut
http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm2.showMessage?topicID=41.topic

Bianca is surprised that Lena knew about her pregnancy. Except that, like everyone in town, the Hot Polish Fox thinks she aborted. Bianca decides NOT to set her straight (pun not intended).

The students in the university rec hall NOW opt to gossip about Bianca. She gets up and makes a big speech about how she was raped. And just when I think the scene can't possibly smell more like cheese, they applaud her when she's finished. Oh, the provolone.

Kendall wants Lena to roll up her sleeves and come up with a sleazy tactic to dethrone Ryan. Lena refuses until she realizes that Kendall DOESN'T want her to sex Ryan up to unearth dirty little secrets. Once that's cleared up, Lena is totally on board.





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/.

TODAY ON ALL MY B***-TALKING CHILDREN:

  • Fish keep good secrets.
  • Lena jumps the gun and is hit by a torpedo.
  • Bigger is better.
  • Lendall are the new hot team in town.
  • VolderTot might have three mommies.

The Set-Up – At Fusion, Ryan sucks the air out of the elevator.

At the park, Juan Pablo reads the Pine Valley Bulletin. The headline reads "School cheating scandal hits home" over a picture of Maggie, handcuffed. Heh, no, that last part was fiction. When Carlos arrives, Juan Pablo tells him the Calatravas are in the country, but Carlos is not concerned ‘cause he has a gun. Great, do I have to think of new lyrics for that song? Again?

At the police station, Lt. Frye decides that probable cause is for ninnies.


Police Station – Lt. Frye discloses that a second set of prints were found on the gun. David says a "certain dark-haired, strong-willed beauty" was the last to have "handled the gun;" Jack freaks and thinks David’s accusing Erica, but he really meant Anna. Fooled ya! Meh.

The bullet that killed Michael Cambias was damaged on impact and cannot be matched to David’s gun, Jack says: the only thing that’s certain is that the bullet came from a .38, so the case is still open. Calleigh needs to make a pit stop in Pine Valley.


The Elevator – Kendall and Greenlee are still fighting about Fusion: the HoYay explodes all around.

Ryan takes off his shirt and I weep. Please, I already wear glasses: I don’t need to go blind.

On the other side, Simone and Mia can hear Greenlee and Kendall in the elevator but choose to chat instead and somehow decide they can run Fusion without the Ambiguously Gay Duo. Simone says that it’s now "every woman for herself" because McHack took over and she doesn’t like strong, independent women on her shows.

Back in the elevator, Kendall accuses Greenlee of spending too much time with her "Gaucho boy."

Greenlee: "At least my guy speaks English."

He can?

Kendall: "At least Aiden has a brain."


He does? What show have I been watching?

After a few more seconds of scalding hot HoYay, Kendall and Greenlee realize Ryan has channeled Caesar, the bastard who broke Xena’s legs. Oh, wait, that’s the fictional Caesar: the real Caesar was worse and, on top of that, had absolutely nothing to do with the salad. Where was I? Oh, right: they finally get that Ryan is trying to divide and conquer and turn against him.


Maggie’s Dorm Room – Bianca is staring at the kissing fish.

Lena: "Bianca, whatever it is you have to tell me, I –"
Bianca:
"I thought that I could do this."

Lena: "Ok, let me do it for you."

Lena, what did I say about interrupting, you *ss?

Lena: "You want to tell me that there is no chance that you and I will ever be together again."
Bianca:
"No, Lena: that’s not it. I don’t want to give up on us."


What’s that noise I just heard? 30 hearts breaking and a door slamming on Maggie’s face? Aww. Here’s a tissue.

Lena: "Bianca! If you still have hope for us, then whatever it is that you’re afraid to tell me, we’ll deal with it together."
Bianca:
"I don’t know if we can."
Lena: "Bianca, look what you’ve survived, look how strong you’ve been, fighting to put everything that Michael did behind you."
Bianca:
"I don’t think that I can ever really do that."
Lena: "I know. I know you can’t erase the past and I know that your memories will always be a part of you, but I hope that I, too, am now a part of you."
Bianca:
"Lena, there’s more than you don’t know. There’s a lot more."


Are you going to get to the point sometime this month, Bianca?

Bianca: "When Michael – he got me pregnant."
Lena: "My sweet love, I know. When I heard, I wanted so much to be near you."

Lena, here’s a torpedo. Let’s watch it go boom together.

Bianca’s worried that other people might know she’s pregnant, too, until Lena explains that she overheard her at the boathouse.

Bianca: "Were you stalking me? Were you spying on me?"
Lena: "No. Look, I promise, it was just a coincidence. I’ve simply taken to going to the boathouse. Almost every night."
Bianca: "Why?"
Lena: "To be closer to you. You told me once it was your save haven: it became mine, too."


Aww. Sniff. I know I’ve read that line about 50 times in both FanFic and fanwanking lately: let’s sue AMC, take it over and bring the HetYay and HoYay back to daytime.  Oh, and glamour.  Thanks, Ellen.

Bianca: "So, all this time you knew about the baby and you didn’t say a word?"

Are you kidding? Bianca, make up your mind: you’re the one who didn’t want to talk to Lena, remember?  Every time she tried, either you or Maggie told her to butt out, so I'm sure Lena thought waltzing up to you to tell you she knew you were pregnant would have done wonders for you relationship - just like talking about it is doing now. Feh.

Lena: "I couldn’t. I didn’t think it was my place. I was so afraid."
Bianca:
"You were afraid? You were afraid of me?"
Lena: "I was afraid that you might hate me for everything: what Michael did to you, getting you pregnant, the whole thing."
Bianca:
"You overheard what Maggie said, didn’t you?"
Lena: "That’s when I left."
Bianca:
"I wish you hadn’t, because, if you had stayed, you would have heard me telling Maggie that I don’t blame you for any of this, I never have."
Lena: "I blame myself, ok? I can only imagine how terrified, how alone you must have felt terminating the pregnancy."


Time for the photon torpedo, Lena: brace for impact.

Bianca:
"It was the longest day of my life."

See, right then, I would have said "Oh, but I didn’t have the abortion," but that would cut down the number of misunderstandings.

Lena apologizes – again – and tells Bianca she doesn’t have to talk about it and "relive it all over again." Bianca says that the choice she had to make is one that she’ll have to live with for the rest of her life and that it was a "huge" and "overwhelming" decision.

Bianca: "Having a baby, alone, at my age, is not something that I ever imagined – "
Lena: "Bianca, is this what you’ve been afraid to tell me?"


Agh! Lena, for Pete’s sake, shut the f*** up! [My poor girlfriend: now I understand: sweetheart, I promise I won’t interrupt ever again. Not even once. Well, you know: today.]

Lena: "You thought I’d disapprove? Bianca, I don’t. I believe with everything that’s in me that you did the right thing. You had to terminate the pregnancy, there was no other choice. My god, you know better than anyone Michael was a sick, twisted monster: there’s no way on this earth you could have had his baby."

Oh, brother. I understand you feel the need to let Bianca know you support the decision you think she’s made and I’d wager you’d do the same if you thought she might have kept the baby, but a much more appropriate response would have been something along the lines of "I would have supported any decision you’d have made." Even those who choose to abort aren’t too keen to hear that their decision was "the only right thing to do" because, abortion or not, the decision is fraught with complications and second thoughts. And, please, would you look at Bianca’s face? How did you ever manage that corporate raider career? You can’t read Bianca worth a d***: maybe if there were a Braille version you’d have better luck.

Lena joins Bianca on the bed and apologizes for having upset her; Bianca says she’s fine, FINE! and Lena, because she’s a blind dolt, believes her; she scoots closer, takes Bianca’s hand in hers and seals the Coffin of Misunderstandings.

Lena: "Bianca, this feels so right. You and me, together, talking again. Hey, let me take you out to dinner, somewhere quiet."

I’m trying to remember when I last misread something this badly and, even including the whole third girlfriend fiasco, I don’t think there’s anything that compares to this.

Lena: "Ok. Look, just – just remember that I love you: hold on to that."

I think Bianca will but, Lena: you have to take it down a notch, forget what Emeril says. And you have to get a read on your girlfriend because this is truly pathetic. See? You leave and Bianca is sadder than she’s been in, oh, a day, because now she thinks you think of VolderFetus as we all did at one point: as VolderSpawn.


PVU – Aiden forces Maggie to take a study break and tells her he’s curious to hear her take on the murder.

Bianca walks in, makes her way to the bulletin board and notices three girls are looking at her and whispering; she joins them and the one who was elected Stupid In Chief tells Bianca that they have all heard "what supposedly happened to [her] and it’s only natural for [them] to wonder what really happened." Is that militia guy still around? ‘Cause I could use his gun right about now.

Bianca steps onto something and addresses the students.

Bianca: "[…] Was that girl really raped? I mean, if she’s telling the truth, then why didn’t Michael Cambias go to trial? Is Erica Kane’s spoiled kid making the whole thing up for attention? Well, the answer is 'no.' I was raped. And, at the time, I thought that it was the end of the world but, thanks to the love and support of my family and friends, I am surviving. I’m surviving the memory of the torture that he put me through and now I’m surviving the snickers and the comments behind my back and the way that people look at me like I’m the one who did something wrong. And, you know, I’ve heard a lot of women who deny it when other women say they were raped because it makes them feel safer: they can’t just bear to admit that this could possibly happen, that they were asking for it. Well, I didn’t ask for it and the only people that you protect by thinking that way are the rapists. Michael Cambias was one of those sick, perverted rapists and, as far as I’m concerned, he got exactly what he deserved. Am I happy that Michael Cambias is dead? That would be a 'yes.' Any questions? Comments?"

Yeah, I have one: Eden, did you overfeed McThing’s fish or something? ‘Cause I think she hates you.

This scene would not be complete without applause: Maggie stands up, begins a slow clap and is soon followed by everyone else. Norma Rae would be so proud. Sniff.

Maggie joins Bianca, who tells her everything with Lena was just fine until she praised her decision to have the abortion.

Maggie: I bet it blew her away when you told her that you were still having the baby."

Well, not exactly, Maggie: for that, one would have to talk and the other would have to listen without interrupting.  The one good thing about this is that both Bianca and Lena have a secret now.

Bianca: "So, Lena, how long has it been?  Wanna make a go of it?  Again?"
Lena: "I've been waiting and hoping you'd ask.  Yes, yes: of course I want to.  I love you."
Lena and Bianca: "There's just one thing."
Lena and Bianca: "You first."
Lena and Bianca: "No, you first."
Lena: "I've been working on the no interruption thing: you first."
Bianca: "I didn't have the abortion."
Lena: "Oh. Well, I tried to commit suicide."
Lena and Bianca: "Love, promise me we're going to talk more."
Lena and Bianca: "You first."
Lena and Bianca: "No, you first."

Yeah, Rome wasn't built in a day, either.

Maggie wonders whether Bianca is certain she wants to have the baby and reminds her that there’s still time. I guess no one really wants her to have this kid – except for me. Bwah! Oh, the irony.


Fusion – When Greenlee says that Fusion is the "only thing that matters" to her, she doesn’t mean that Juan Pablo is useless and going to Ryan’s room was "strictly business" and, d*** it, Juan Pablo should stop looking at her as if she’d done "something unforgivable."  What is it with people and their silly morals anyway?


Kendall’s Office – Kendall barges in and screeches for Lena, who is right behind her; she wonders what’s wrong and Lena, with the crankiest, most resigned tone I’ve ever heard her use, tells her that nothing’s wrong, "just one of those cosmic jokes without a punch line." Bianca's made you cranky, huh?  Pfft, that's nothing: you should have seen her at PVU: now, that is cranky!

Kendall: "Well, get over it and roll up your sleeves: we’ve got our job cut out for us."

Lena, why did you ever go for the insecticide? Everyone simply adores you and cares for your well-being.

Kendall needs something "dirty" and fast-acting against Ryan; Lena the Good Citizen proposes a legal fight, which exasperates Kendall.

Kendall: "Lose the kid gloves, Lena.  I know you worked with Michael Cambias: I know how down and dirty you can go."
Lena: "Oh, no, Kendall, not anymore."
Kendall: "Excuse me, I saved your life: you owe me.  [...]  Look, I'm not asking you to sleep with anybody: I need boardroom, not bedroom tricks."

Oh, well, in that case, what do you need, you big lump of warmth and sympathy?


The Last Scenes – At the police station, Ryan proposes an exchange of information: everything he knows about the Cambias murder for his time of death. You’re still on that? Ryan, I look at you and I dream of walking on poisonous nails.

At PVU, Bianca tells Maggie that she won’t change her mind "because of what Lena said;" she’ll have the baby and do it all on her own.

Maggie: "Are you sure?"
Bianca: "Yeah. I mean, Lena made herself pretty clear."


Maggie is sorry things have gone as they have and promises she’ll help Bianca.

Maggie: "You are not getting rid of me."

Maybe so, but you're still second choice.  And without the benefits.

In Kendall’s office, CorporateRaider!Lena is back: she has an idea which, though risky, might get the job done.

Kendall: "I don’t care, I really don’t give a d***: bring on the risk. I wanna know where to hit Ryan where it hurts the most."

Oh, you already know where that is, Kendall.


TOMORROW ON ALL MY CHILDREN: Bianca tells Aiden that finding Michael’s killer is none of his business; Jack asks David whose prints are on his gun; Lena reveals her plan to Kendall; Greenlee tries to punch Ryan.

PARODY

This parody is by LizzieT.

Lena parts are indicated in red for those who only want a Lena fix All My Children Discussion Group

Juan Pablo met with Carlos in the park.
Juan Pablo: Were you followed here today?
Carlos: By who? A crowd of adoring fans. Not likely.
Juan Pablo: A team of assassins has entered the U S. They are in Miami which is only a few hours from here by plane - or ten minutes if they cut across the Pine Valley Ocean. Of course it's possible they won't show up until November Sweeps.
Carlos: I'm not afraid. I have a gun.
Juan Pablo: To protect yourself?
Carlos: No. To stay on the list of suspects in the Cambias murder case. It's the only chance I have of being remotely interesting.

At the police station Derek had the lab reports on the gun.
Derek: Your gun matches the gun that was used to shoot Michael Cambias. But we found two sets of fingerprints on it. Who did the second set belong to?
David: A certain dark haired woman we all know and love.
Derek: You mean Anna?
David: Uh....yeah, sure. Why not?
Jack: Yes. Of course he meant Anna. He couldn't possibly have meant anyone else. No sir, not someone like Erica.
Aidan: So are yew going to arrest Dighvid?
Jack: Absolutely not.
Derek: Why not? He had the murder weapon.
Jack: That doesn't mean anything. We can't make an arrest right now. It's not November sweeps yet.
David: Then I can go?
Derek: I guess. But don't leave town.
David: I won't - unless I get written out unexpectedly. You never know around here.

Bianca and Lena continued their conversation.
Bianca: I just don't know how to tell you this.
Lena: You mean about being pregnant? I know already. I overheard you and Maggie at the boathouse.
Bianca: Were you following me?
Lena: No. I just like to go there. You know, you probably shouldn't discuss things you want to keep a secret at the boathouse. On a good night half the town may overhear what you have to say. So would you like to go out sometime?
Bianca: I'll keep that in mind. I still have some more secrets to keep.
Lena: So we're not reuniting this episode?
Bianca: Not yet. Maybe for November Sweeps.

Aidan appeared at the student union.
Aidan: Ello Maggie. Ow are yew?
Maggie: What are you doing here?
Aidan: Oi'm troing to solve the cise of oo killed Moichal. Oi almost ad yewr cousin Dighvid arrested but the DI let im go.
Maggie: So you're looking for clues at the student union?
Aidan: It's the only other set up todigh besoids Fusion.
Maggie: Why are you involved in this anyway?
Aidan: Oi want a gewd storyline going in to November Sweeps.

Ryan, Kendall, and Greenlee were stuck in the elevator.
Ryan: Kendall tried to team up with me to gain control of Fusion.
Greenlee: I can't believe you went behind my back to control Fusion.
Kendall: You went behind my back to control Fusion.
Greenlee: But you went behind my back first.
Kendall: Yeah, well you went behind my back second.
Greenlee: Nyahhhh!
Kendall: Double nyahhhh! Hey, why are you taking off your shirt Ryan?
Ryan: Why do you think they brought me back to Pine Valley? It sure wasn't for this scintillating storyline.



LENAVERSE



Lena attempts to tell Kendall to live long and prosper


Kendall needs boardroom tricks not bedroom ones from Lena.
Apparently, any dirty trick except sex is okay by Lena


It looks like the beginnings of a great "friendship" between Kendall and Lena. What's Lena's reward for successfully recruiting some business grad students for the Hart Group of businesses? Kendall is now unleasing Lena on Ryan. Kendall wants to take the Ryanmeister down and who better than the Lenameister to do it? Refusing to bed the guy, Lena is going to take him down by using "boardroom not bedroom tricks" as Kendall directs to Lena. This should be good because we all know Lena has a lot of deep frustrations to work out and targeting Ryan might grant her some bits of relief. The fact that it took her negative five seconds to come up with a plan of attack shows that Kendall will indeed get her money's worth with this employee, even if Lena refuses to sleep with anyone (so much for 'men are for business and women for lahv'...).

Also, it sets up in motion where Lena will probably find out about the Alexander Cambias codocil covering any child of Michael Cambias. Then, when Lena finds out about Bianca NOT terminating the pregnancy, she will have some pretty good news to deliver to her boss Kendall, who might finally stop yelling at Lena when she finds out that Ryan gets shut out of the equation completely. Oh, but this is a soap opera. I forgot. Oh well. IT COULD HAPPEN!

Lena: No. Look, I promise, it was just a coincidence. I’ve simply taken to going to the boathouse, almost every night.

Lena: You said you still had hope for us. And look, here we are talking to each other and reaching out to each other. I just hope that this can be a new beginning for us. You know, a way for us to keep open to one another.
Bianca: I just don't know. I can't promise anything. Okay, Lena? Please don't put pressure on me right now.
Lena: No, of course. Bianca, it's the last thing I want. I promise. Ok. Look, just -– just remember that I love you. Hold on to that.
[Lena leaves the room]

***** (clip d) [Bianca is leading up to another berserker moment in the PVU common area (no Lena)]

Bianca: Excuse me. Do you guys have a problem?
Woman: We all heard what supposedly happened to you.
Bianca: "Supposedly"?
Woman: It's only natural for us to wonder what really went down.
Bianca: Ah. So you want to know what really went down? Oh, well, I can -- I can fill you in on that. I'd be happy to. And, in fact, you can all take notes. Hey, I want to see a show of hands. Who here wants to hear the truth about michael cambias?

***** (clip e) [Bianca announces she was raped and tells Maggie she did not tell Lena that she was still pregnant]

[Pine valley University]

Bianca: You know, I thought that no one was going to make a big deal about what happened to me, but I guess that I was mistaken. So, let me just clear up any confusion that any of you might have so that there are no more questions in your minds and no more whispers behind my back. Was -- was that girl really raped? I mean, if she's telling the truth, then why didn't michael cambias go to trial? Is erica kane's spoiled kid making the whole thing up for attention? Well, the answer is no. I was raped. And at the time, I thought that it was the end of the world. But thanks to the love and support of my family and friends, I am surviving. I'm surviving memories of the torture that he put me through, and now I am surviving the snickers and the comments behind my back and the way that people look at me like I'm the one who did something wrong. You know, and I've heard a lot of women who deny it when other women say that they were raped because it makes them feel safer. They just can't bear to admit that this could possibly happen unless you were asking for it. Well, I didn't ask for it. And the only people that you protect by thinking that way are the rapists. Michael cambias was one of those sick, perverted rapists, and as far as I'm concerned, he got exactly what he deserved. Am I happy that michael cambias is dead? That would be a yes. Any questions? Comments?
Regina: We believe you, bianca.
Maggie: Aidan, wait here. I should really go talk to her, ok?
Aidan: Ok.
Maggie: Are you ok?
Bianca: I don't know.
Maggie: What just happened?
Bianca: I don't know.
[amc031007e-inc starts]
Maggie: Did you just rage your hormones? Or did things not go too well with you and Lena?
Bianca: Well, things went all right until she told me I did the only thing I possibily could have by having the abortion.
Maggie: Whoa. I bet it blew her away when you told her that you were still having the baby.
BIanca: No, I didn't tell her. I couldn't tell her.
Maggie: Why not?
Bianca: Because she said that there was no way that I could possibly have Michael Cambias' baby.
Maggie: Do you believe that now, too? You know, it's not too late

***** (clip f) [Kendall assigns Lena to work on the Ryan problem]

[amc031007f starts]
[At Kendall's Secret World Headquarters]
Kendall: Lena!
Lena: [Down] No need to shout, I'm right here.
Kendall: What's your problem?
Lena: Nothing, just one of those cosmic jokes without a punch line.
Kendall: Yeah, well, get over it and roll up your sleeves, we’ve got our work cut out for us.
Lena: What can I do?
Kendall: I need a dirty trick, something really nasty.
Lena: What do you have in mind?
Kendall: Something that will stop Ryan from making his claim on Michael's estate.
Lena: Fight him in court, that's always nasty.
Kendall: No, no, I need something fast acting.
Lena: I don't see how else you could --
Kendall: Ah, lose the kid gloves, Lena. I know you worked with Michael Cambias. I know how down and dirty you can go.
Lena: Oh, no, Kendall, not anymore.
Kendall: Uh, excuse me, I saved your life. You owe me.
Lena: Kendall, no. I would never stoop that low ever again.
Kendall: Look! Look! I'm not --
Lena: I'm --
Kendall: I am not asking you to sleep with anybody. I need boardroom, not bedroom tricks.
Lena: Oh. Bluntly stated.
Kendall: Yeah, well I don't have time for sensitive. I have to bring Ryan down and it has to happen fast.

***** (clip g) [Maggie tells Bianca that she will help her with the baby regardless of Lena]

[amc031007g starts]
[PVU]
Maggie: Bianca, are you having second thoughts about having a baby? Maggie: Are you sure?
Bianca: Yeah. I mean, Lena made herself pretty clear.
Maggie: I'm really sorry.
Bianca: Me too. I mean, I'm just beginning to see how difficult this is all going to be.
[amc031007g ends]
Maggie: At least you're not going to be going at it by yourself.
Bianca: You know, maggie, I would never hold you --
maggie: Stop it.
Bianca: To the promise that you made.
Maggie: You are not getting rid of me.
Bianca: Thank you.
Aidan: You two look so gorgeous when you're smiling.
Bianca: Thank you. Look, I'm sorry about that tirade before.
Aidan: No. You were amazing.
Bianca: I was loud.
Aidan: Well, I think everybody got your message. Michael cambias hasn't beaten you down.

***** (clip h) [Oooo, Lena has an idea to take down Ryan]

[amc031007h starts]
[Back at the KendallCave]
Kendall: No, Ryan is not going to beat me down. I will not be a two time loser. He cannot just leave town, break our engagament, and not say goodbye, and then come back and steal me blind. Think, Lena, think! How can we stop him?
Lena: Okay, I have an idea, but it's risky.
Kendall: I don’t care, I really don’t give a d***: bring on the risk. I wanna know how to hit Ryan where it hurts the most.

***** (clip i) [Next on AMC: Lena to Kendall: "You do want Ryan Lavery out of your life, don't you?"]

On the next "all my children"
bianca: It's none of your business who killed michael cambias.
Jack: The other set of prints on this gun -- who do they belong to? Were they erica's?
[amc031007i-inc starts]
Lena: You do want Ryan Lavery out of your life, don't you?
[amc031007i-inc ends] Ryan: What is it that you really wanted to say?
