>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Adam: You're fired.

Tad: What?

Liza: Bankbook. Protect Colby.

Mia: I'm going to go get the books right now.

Vanessa: My baby. Oh, I haven't forgotten you, darling.

[Leo groans]

Greenlee: Leo, thank God you're not dead. What happened? Who did this to you? Leo, can you hear me?

Greenlee: Now for the strings that are attached to this meal.

Trey: I'm ready to pay. Shoot.

Greenlee: My Enchantment contract has this nasty noncompete clause.

Trey: You can't take a job with the competition.

Greenlee: Supposedly not.

Trey: Do you have another offer?

Greenlee: Revlon's shown interest, so it's just a matter of time. Although Erica would rather kill me than let me go.

Greenlee: What?

Trey: Maybe you'd feel better if we left.

Greenlee: I just got here. Why the hell would I leave?

Brooke: Amy, I'm not going to be into work at all today. No, no, I'm okay.

Brooke: Fine. Tell them I will take care of it first thing tomorrow morning. Okay. Thanks, Amy.

Brooke: Jamie? Sweetie, aren't you hungry? Jamie, stop. Wait a minute. Look at me. You haven't said a word since we came back from the Valley Inn last night. Are you okay? Jamie, you know that you're safe, don't you? I mean, Vanessa Cortlandt is locked up. Jamie --

Brooke: Hi. This is Brooke English. Hi. I need to see you today.

Tad: Hey, gorgeous. Well, aren't you a sight for sore eyes, huh? The folks outside said you might have a hard time remembering who I am, so I brought visual aids. High school yearbook. See, this is -- this is you. And that's me --

Liza: Hmm.

Tad: Back in senior year, way back when the world was still cooling.

Liza: Hmm.

Tad: Back then, you thought I was the handsomest, most fascinating man on the planet. Who knew I'd get better with age? Huh?

Liza: One of the handsomest.

Tad: You have me confused with someone else?

Liza: No. Tad?

Tad: You remember?

Liza: You're my friend.

Tad: Your best friend.

Liza: Mm-hmm. I ran out on you.

Tad: What do you mean, Sweetheart?

Liza: I left you to explain.

Tad: To explain what?

Liza: The stockholders.

Tad: Oh. Stockholders. Listen, Sweetheart, that's fine. You listen to me, okay? That's nothing. That's taken care of. Okay? It's all terrific. I promise you. So, when are they going to blow you from this pop stand, huh? Next week? Maybe tomorrow? What do you say?

Liza: No. You're lying. What did he -- what did Adam do? What did he do?

Adam: Mia? What the devil are you doing?

Mia: Colby was taking her nap in here, and now she can't find teddy bear.

Adam: Oh. Well, she won't nap without him.

Mia: Yeah, exactly. So I'm sort of on teddy -- teddy patrol.

Adam: Can I help?

Mia: Oh, no! Adam, wait.

Greenlee: Enchantment's great, but Revlon? Bring it on.

Trey: What about Vanessa?

Greenlee: A non-issue. Find me a loophole in my contract so I can step into my incredibly successful future.

Trey: Huh. Last night would've left most people --

Greenlee: I'm not most people, Trey. Revlon isn't interested in most people. Vanessa's homicidal mad cow routine didn't bother me in the least. I'm ready to move on to life --

[Greenlee gasps]

Greenlee: Wake up. Wake up! Do something!

Maitre d': Is everything all right here?

Leo: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm okay -- whoa --

Greenlee: Oh. Oh. You passed out into my Eggs Benedict, Leo.

Maitre d': May I be of some assistance?

Greenlee: Yes, yes -- get a doctor here right away.

Leo: No -- no doctors. No doctors, please. Thank you. Just -- just let me go to my -- to my room.

Greenlee: Your room? What room? What room? His room?

Maitre d': Mr. du Pres is in the presidential suite.

Greenlee: The presidential suite?

Maitre d': Yes, Ms. Smythe.

Greenlee: But how can he afford that?

Trey: He's dead weight over here! Can you lend me hand or a shoulder or something?

Greenlee: Here, here, here.

Maitre d': I could call a bellman.

Greenlee: Whatever will get him upstairs. Come on. Come on.

Trey: Oh, wait -- wait, wait. I got an idea.

Tad: Wow. Your doctors must be ecstatic if you remember both me and Adam and you're so fired up to find out what's going on back at work.

Liza: Stop. Stop.

Elizabeth: Mrs. Chandler, who are you -- you.

Tad: Yeah, me. In case you forgot the name, you can ask Liza. She remembers me. Don't you?

Elizabeth: Mr. Chandler was very clear, Mr. Martin. He doesn't want you anywhere near his wife.

Liza: Why?

Tad: Well, then, we just won't tell him about it, will we?

Elizabeth: I have to follow Mr. Chandler's instructions.

Tad: No, you have to follow my brother Jake's instructions. He's your boss, isn't he?

Elizabeth: So?

Tad: So I assume you want to keep your job.

Elizabeth: What kind of a roundabout threat is that?

Tad: You think about it for a second. I'm sure the penny will drop.

Elizabeth: You think we nurses don't have a union? You think this hospital is the Martin family's personal candy store?

Tad: Watch very closely. Liza, would you like me to stay?

Liza: Yes.

Tad: There. You see? You heard it directly from the patient. Now, would you be so kind to give us a minute?

Elizabeth: We'll see what Mr. Chandler has to say about this.

Tad: Well, that went really well.

Liza: Adam fired you, didn't he?

Tad: No, no. You're being sneaky, and it doesn't count. Okay, listen, talking about work is still work.

Mia: Oh -- here he is. I found him. Oh. I knew he was down there.

Adam: Oh, teddy, teddy. I got teddy for Colby before Liza knew that Colby was my child. Of course, I knew. And then when -- after Liza was asleep, we'd -- Colby and teddy and I had these secret meetings, and we'd -- we'd make pacts -- all for one and one for all. Of course, Colby and teddy let me do all the talking.

Mia: Well, you are a very persuasive guy.

Adam: Yeah. I promised Colby that we'd be a family. We would always be a family. And it hasn't been easy, but I kept my word, and I -- I always will.

Mia: Pretty sure of that, huh?

Adam: Yes, I am. Liza's, well, not totally convinced that I'm good for Colby. She just can't seem to accept the fact that I -- I love your sister, Mia. I love your sister and I love our child. I just wish Liza knew that in her heart.

Mia: Are you hoping I'll tell her for you?

Adam: Oh, no. I don't think it matters. I think Liza thinks I'm more directed by money and power than matters of the heart.

Mia: Well, aren't you? I mean, you got a reputation -- being sort of -- well, help me out here.

Adam: No. I'm having too much fun watching you paint yourself into a corner.

Mia: Well, you've been ruthless.

Adam: Yes, and I will be again when protecting myself or my family against attack. Liza calls me manipulative and controlling.

Mia: Because you are.

Adam: Oh, God, I wish I were. I love playing God, but I just wish for once that I could be genuinely -- have the power to manipulate and control other people's destinies, other people's lives. Because if I did, Liza would be home, there would be no brain tumor, and there would be no terror. But -- just be me and Liza and Colby and me keeping my promise to my daughter.

Mia: Adam -- you really do love her, don't you? She's very lucky.

Adam: Will you see that Colby gets this?

Mia: Don't you want to give it to her?

Adam: No, no, I'd really rather you did, if you don't mind.

Mia: Sure. I'd be happy to. Adam -- I'm beginning to understand what Liza sees in you.

Adam: You thought my passions were all dictated by Wall Street?

Mia: Well, given the fact that you tried to squeeze that money out of me that I owed you, yeah. You hide your depths pretty well.

Adam: Yeah, well, I try. But what the hell? I'm human. There, you got it. Now that you're family, you're entitled to know my deep, dark secret.

Mia: Well, having a family is -- you know, it's kind of new for me.

Adam: Yeah, well, you are part of that family, like it or not.

Mia: Thank you.

Adam: We're not much. We're a bit odd. Hardly normal. But we're yours.

Mia: Thank you.

Adam: Yeah. I'll remind you that when you curse the day we found you on our doorstep.

Mia: Thank you.

Adam: Stop thanking me.

Mia: I'm sorry. I just -- I don't know exactly where I fit in right now.

Adam: Liza likes you. She confides in you and she trusts you with Colby. There is no greater honor than that. Liza needs you. That means we both need you.

Mia: Well, I guess I'll be getting Colby her best friend.

Adam: Thanks for all the help you've given us, Mia. Thank you.

Mia: You're welcome.

Adam: Okay. Going back to the hospital?

Mia: Yes. Right away.

Adam: Can I give you a ride?

Mia: That would be great.

Tad: Liza, you got to do me a favor, Sweetheart. You got to stay calm. I'm telling you the truth. I was thinking about jumping ship anyway. I was thinking maybe it was time for me to start another talk show or maybe go back into the wine business.

Liza: I knew that he would do this. He would seize control.

Tad: Listen to me. You cannot let this get to you, please. You're starting to scare me. Just -- just relax, okay? Please?

Liza: Don't tell him that I know.

Tad: I don't think it matters. I'm sure that Attila the nurse has told him all about --

Liza: No! Promise --

[Heart monitor beeps faster]

Liza: Promise me!

Tad: Shh. I promise. I promise. I promise you anything, okay, baby? Just -- just please take it easy. Liza, I promise.


Brooke: My son Jamie was also at the engagement party last night, and he witnessed this hostage incident with Vanessa Cortlandt and Greenlee Smythe.

Zeke: Did you discuss the incident with Jamie?

Brooke: Well, I tried to, but he -- he didn't want to talk about it.

Zeke: Sometimes it can take a little longer for children to process, especially in traumatic circumstances. Coffee?

Brooke: No, thanks. He hasn't said a word since last night. Nothing. You know, but when I look at him, I know that -- I know that something is troubling him.

Zeke: Give him time.

Brooke: Well, how much time?

Zeke: I can't predict that.

Brooke: I just -- I just don't want to panic about this, you know, I -- but I wonder what he's feeling and what he's thinking and, you know, why doesn't he trust me?

Zeke: Children are incredibly resilient. Trust me -- when he's ready, he'll start talking.

Brooke: See, I -- I'm not sure if this is a passing phase. He's not talking. He's not eating. He is avoiding looking at me.

Zeke: And you feel powerless in trying to help him?

Brooke: I just don't want to do anything to make it worse. It's why I called you. And you telling to me to give it time -- that doesn't cut it. I need you to tell me something so I can help my son.

Leo: The room's moving. It's moving. Room's --

Greenlee: Come on. Come on.

[Greenlee grunts]

Greenlee: Come on. Come here. Come here, sit down. Come on. All right. What happened?

Leo: I don't know. I guess I got -- I guess I got mugged. Somebody, I think, zapped me with one of those phazer things, and they -- they took my wallet. And the room got ransacked.

Greenlee: Ransacked? Ransacked for what?

Leo: Oh, they found it.

Trey: What, your sock? Your arch support?

Leo: My piggy bank's empty. I guess that serves me right for flashing my cash.

Greenlee: These are new.

Trey: Shouldn't we call the police?

Greenlee and Leo: No!

Trey: He was beaten and mugged.

Greenlee: Leo -- brand-new, never-worn, handmade Italian loafers? The presidential suite? Where'd the money come from, Leo? And don't try to lie. Where?

Leo: I was -- I got it at the track. I won some bets.

Greenlee: Save it. You're back to chasing easy money to distract yourself.

Leo: No, I don't -- I don't need distractions.

Greenlee: Yeah, it keeps you from thinking about Vanessa’s crimes.

Leo: No, only amnesia can do that.

Greenlee: Nothing Vanessa did was your fault, Leo, okay? She's totally and completely --

Leo: What, insane? How could -- how could I not see it, Greenlee? It was right in my face this whole time. I thought that she was putting us on. And I -- I guess I realized that she wasn't when she tried to strangle me at the hospital that night. That's when I realized that she really was mad.

Greenlee: Well, it's okay now, Leo, because she's --

Leo: I was going to bring her down. I was going to prove that she was faking. And I was going to make her stand trial for everything that she did to Frankie, to you, to us.

Trey: Uh -- maybe I should step out, you know, being Vanessa’s attorney and all.

Greenlee: Thanks, Trey.

[Door closes]

Leo: Sorry I wrecked your date.

Greenlee: What date? Trey? No, it's purely legal. We're trying to work around my contract from --

Leo: I almost died.

Greenlee: I think you might have a slight concussion, but you're going to be okay.

Leo: I'm not talking about my head. Forget about my head. Vanessa had that knife to your throat, I -- I -- I stopped breathing. My heart stopped beating.

Greenlee: Well -- but I'm still here and she didn't use it.

Leo: If she had, Green -- I don't know what I would do if something happened to you. I would -- I would die.

Greenlee: You know, you really shouldn’t be moving around. I think you should lie down --

Leo: I mean it, Greenlee. It brought everything into focus for me.

Greenlee: Why -- I wish you would let us take you to the hospital.

Leo: She just -- she's not going to come between us. Where she's at now, she can't come between us anymore.

Greenlee: Right. That's what I was trying to say.

Leo: The exorcism's complete, Greenlee. She's out of our lives forever.

Greenlee: So you can start over.

Leo: No, we both can. I don't want to do anything without you, Greenlee. Please, just give me another chance.


Tad: Take it easy --

Elizabeth: I told you to clear out!

Tad: What's wrong with her?

Elizabeth: What did you do to her?

Tad: Don't yell at me. Just help her, for God's sake.

[Alarm stops]

Adam: What is it?

Tad: We're trying to figure it --

Adam: What are you doing in here?

Liza: No.

Adam: I told you to stay away --

Liza: No!

Adam: Go on, get out!

Liza: No!

Adam: I want you out now!

Liza: No! No! No, please.

Tad: Adam, take it easy. Relax.

Adam: What was it you said to her?

Tad: I didn't say anything. I was just showing her a picture.

Adam: You were whining about being fired, weren't you?

Tad: No, I wasn't.

Adam: I told you to stay away from her, Tad. I told you to stay away from her.

Tad: And Liza doesn't have a say, right?

Adam: Till she's totally recovered, I don't want you anywhere near her!

Tad: I don't care what you want! If she wants me in there, that's where I'm going to be. Excuse me.

[Monitor beeps]

Nurse: That's just a warning, Mrs. Chandler. We've got to keep you calm.

Liza: Did you find them?

Mia: Under the bed where you said they'd be. But, Liza, maybe you should think twice about all this. Adam is -- he's devoted to Colby, and -- I mean, I feel he loves her more than his own life. I just --

Liza: Did you tell him?

Mia: No. Liza --

Liza: Did you tell him about the money?

Bianca: So, who are you?

Trey: I'm Trey Kenyon.

Bianca: And? I mean, are you a friend of Leo's or something?

Trey: I'm his mother's attorney.

Bianca: Ooh. Talk about dirty jobs.

Trey: Yeah, someone's got to do it.

Bianca: So, what are you doing out here? The police aren't in there, are they?

Trey: I'm waiting for Greenlee.

Bianca: Oh. Greenlee's in there.

Trey: You sound like you would prefer it were the police.

Bianca: What can I say? He loves her.

Trey: Does Greenlee love him?

Leo: Look, I know -- I know that you have feelings for Jake, too.

Greenlee: Leo --

Leo: Okay? I just -- just -- you said that you loved us both, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Leo, I really don't think we should discuss this right now --

Leo: And if I'm still in the mix, I think that I can win it. I want to be everything to you. And I think that I can do that if you just give me a chance --

Greenlee: No, Leo, it's too late. You don't think Vanessa hurt us? She killed what we had. It's gone.

Leo: You're just going to -- you're just going to let her get the best of you --

Greenlee: She took it. She took all the power, Leo. Vanessa loves you like no one else. She's obsessed with you. She'll never let go.

Leo: She's locked up, Greenlee --

Greenlee: For all we know, she's hijacked a laundry truck and she's on her way here. What if she found me with you, Leo? I'd be dead. Vanessa wants you all to herself.

Leo: Yeah? Well, she can't have me.

Greenlee: Neither can I. Vanessa accomplished her mission. I tried to be strong, Leo. I tried. I can’t. I just can't do it anymore.

Leo: Look, I'm -- I'm not asking you to forget everything that she's done.

Greenlee: Yes, you are. If I'm with you, Vanessa won't stop until she kills me. I'm sorry, Leo, but I'm just too scared.

Zeke: Ms. English, the trigger incident only occurred last night.

Brooke: It's not the first time, though, that Jamie’s witnessed psychotic behavior with this Vanessa Cortlandt. There was an incident that happened right here in the hospital.

Zeke: When Mrs. Cortlandt grabbed Jamie?

Brooke: Yes, and she wouldn't let him go, and she kept calling him her son, and -- and Jamie -- he freaked out.

Zeke: What did Jamie tell you?

Brooke: He didn't -- basically, he downplayed it that time because he knew that I was very upset and I was angry at -- at Edmund.

Zeke: Then last night?

Brooke: Last night, in the middle of everything, Vanessa all of a sudden spots Jamie in the crowd and starts talking to him, like she knew him.

Zeke: But your son is aware that Mrs. Cortlandt is now in Oak Haven?

Brooke: Yes. You know, but given her -- you know, her escapes, I don't think that's very comforting to him.

Zeke: How's he doing in school?

Brooke: He's fine, you know. He's a good student. He's popular.

Zeke: And nothing has happened at home that would make Jamie’s safety and security feel threatened?

Tad: His mother's getting remarried. Does that qualify?

Brooke: Tad.

Tad: What's going on? Are we having a little psychiatric tęte-ŕ-tęte about our son?

Brooke: Because Jamie’s still a little upset about last night.

Tad: Define "upset."

Brooke: Look, I don't want you to overreact.

Tad: Is there something you're not telling me?

Brooke: I -- I -- I will fill you in, okay? I'm not keeping any information from you.

Zeke: Excuse me. Why don't you two make an appointment with my secretary and let me evaluate Jamie?

Brooke: Okay, I will. Thank you, Dr. McMillan. Thanks. I was going to call you.

Tad: Yeah. We'll discuss it in the car. Come on.

Mia: Liza, you mean more to me than anyone on this earth.

Liza: Then you won't tell him?

Mia: About the money? No, I won’t.

Liza: It's for Colby. Thank you.

Mia: You just rest now. Get some rest. You think about going home to her, and that's all I want you to think about. Just clear your mind of anything else. I'm going to be right outside.

Marian: Oh. Hello, darling.

Mia: Hi.

Marian: How is she?

Mia: She's resting, finally.

Marian: Oh, good --

Mia: Marian, why don't you just come back later with Stuart?

Marian: I am with Stuart. He's parking the car.

Mia: I just don't think that now is really a good time. You know, Liza -- you shouldn't disturb her.

Marian: Mia, what on earth has gotten into you?

Mia: No, it's what's gotten into you, Marian. You've been drinking.

Marian: I most certainly have not been drinking --

Mia: Yes, I can tell you've been drinking. Liza's going through enough. Please, just don't go in there.

Marian: I know you're too young to remember, darling, but prohibition was repealed years ago.

Mia: Liza just does not need to be upset right now.

Marian: Well, for God's sake, Mia, I had one glass of wine with lunch.

Mia: One?

Marian: Yes. Would you like me to take a Breathalyzer test?

Stuart: Oh. Marian only had a couple of glasses.

Mia: Yeah. Look, I am not trying to be the booze patrol here. Honestly, I'm not.

Marian: Oh, yes, you are. That's exactly what you are trying to do. Okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Move over a little bit, Stuart. Okay, watch this, all right?

Mia: Marian --

Marian: You see? I am not drunk, right?

Mia: I'm not saying that you're drunk. I'm saying that you've been drinking.

Stuart: We -- we were -- we were nervous for Liza. And I had an extra dessert, and Marian had a glass of wine.

Mia: Fine. I understand that. But Liza doesn't need to worry about any one of us right now.

Marian: Well, I would never do anything to harm Liza. What are you talking about?

Stuart: No, of course not.

Mia: It's just been a very tiring morning for her. If you come back later, she's going to have more energy.

Stuart: Okay. Why -- why don't we just let Liza rest right now, and we'll come back later.

Marian: Okay, fine. All right. We'll do just that. I have to stop at the store on the way home, Stuart, okay?

Stuart: Okay. She -- she only had a couple of glasses. They were little glasses.

Mia: I know. I didn't mean to offend her. It's just that we have to put Liza first.

Stuart: Oh, sure, sure. Well, don't you worry about Marian. She never stays mad for long. Okay.

Mia: Okay.

Adam: Well done.

Mia: Yeah, but Marian is furious.

Adam: Better her than Liza.

Mia: Yeah. You see, that's what I thought.

Adam: You know, for a single woman without any kids, you do an awfully good mama bear imitation.

Mia: It's not as if she was smashed or anything.

Adam: Yeah, just a little anesthetized. Look, if you'd like to get a cup of coffee, I can keep an eye on Liza.

Mia: Yeah, I'd like that. But stay out here, you know? She's trying to rest.

Adam: Yeah, so I heard.

Mia: Really, don't let anyone in there, please.

Adam: Are you giving me orders?

Mia: Do I need to, Adam? She needs to sleep. You want a cup?

Adam: No, thank you.

Mia: Okay.

Leo: Sit down for a second. It's all still too fresh for you. You'll adjust. And after a while, you won't see Vanessa --

Greenlee: No, I'll still see Vanessa. I'll see her every time I look at you.

Leo: I -- I remind you of Vanessa?

Greenlee: I can't help it. She wants me dead, Leo. She still does, and she always will.

Leo: Because of me.

Greenlee: Because you loved me.

Leo: I still love you, Greenlee. I'm always going to love you.

Greenlee: No, don’t. Don't, okay?

Leo: Don't what? Don't love you?

Greenlee: I'm sorry. But she won't stop until we're over, so we -- let's just end it while we're still breathing.

Leo: You wanted adventure and excitement, and we had that for a while. You wanted somebody who would send your heart racing.

Greenlee: I did love you, Leo.

Leo: We might have made it without Vanessa.

Greenlee: Don't play "what if."

Leo: Oh. What -- you needed a safe place to go, somebody who could protect you, and I didn't do that.

Greenlee: No --

Leo: You needed me, and I -- I failed again last night.

Greenlee: You tried, Leo.

Leo: I didn't come through for you. I'm glad you found him.

Greenlee: Trey? I barely know the man.

Leo: No, I'm talking about Jake. You can depend on Jake. You can -- you can trust him. Not like me.

Greenlee: Leo --

[Knock on door]

Leo: Yeah?

Bianca: Do you need me to get lost for a while?

Leo: No, no, no. You're cool. We're finished.

Bianca: Okay. I'm just passing through.

Leo: Now, if Jake doesn't follow through with everything -- never mind. He will. He'll be everything you want, Greenlee.

Brooke: Tad, hold up before you go inside.

Tad: Why? Is Edmund in there taking a nap or something?

Brooke: No, he is on business. He's away. I just don't want you storming in there and yelling.

Tad: Why would I do that?

Brooke: Why? Because you're angry.

Tad: With just cause. You don't go consulting some psychiatrist about our son without telling me first.

Brooke: I wanted Dr. McMillan's professional opinion before I talked to you.

Tad: Brooke, I'm Jamie’s father!

Brooke: And I am his mother!

Tad: Look, I am begging you, whatever you do, do not shut me out of my son's life.

Brooke: When have I? I would never do that, Tad.

Tad: Brooke, admit it -- your life is changing.

Brooke: But you said you were happy for me.

Tad: I am happy for you.

Brooke: Listen to me. You know, you will always be the top man in Jamie’s life. Marrying Edmund is not going to change that fact. Jamie will always need his father.

Myrtle: I thought I heard some familiar voices.

Tad: Hi, Myrtle.

Brooke: Hi, Myrtle.

Myrtle: Hi, darlings. How are you?

Brooke: How are you?

Tad: Listen -- where's Jamie?

Myrtle: He's upstairs. Haven't heard a peep out of him. Thanks.

Brooke: Listen, thank you for coming by.

Myrtle: Oh, darling, that's my pleasure.

Brooke: Okay.

Myrtle: Now, can I do anything?

Brooke: No. I'll call.

Myrtle: You will? All right. Let me out.

Brooke: Let me get the door.

Myrtle: Bye, Tad.

Tad: Thanks, Myrtle.

Brooke: All right. We'll see you.

Myrtle: Thanks, darling. Right. Bye.

[Door closes]

Tad: Jamie? It's me, son. You want to come down for a minute?

Brooke: Maybe we should let him do this, you know, on his own schedule.

Tad: We have to let him know we're involved.

Bianca: I know, but we don't need to add any more pressure to him.

Tad: Look, our son is hurt. If we try to help him, how's that adding pressure?

Brooke: I just -- I hate not knowing the right thing to do.

Tad: James? Jamie, your old man's not getting any younger. Waiting for you. When -- you want to come out for a minute? Hey, listen. It's a beautiful day to hit the batting cages. What do you say? You want to take a shot at topping my record or what?

Brooke: Jamie, honey, can you come down and join us?

Tad: You want to know the truth? I came by for a reality check. You know, I was -- I was so terrified last night that I -- I couldn't get to sleep. Fact is I was still shaking this morning.

Brooke: Well, I think we all were.

Tad: You know, anybody would be terrified by a maniac like Vanessa Cortlandt. I think the important thing to keep in mind is that, you know, she's been put away for good. James? Jamie? Listen. If you ever want to talk to me about anything -- anything at all -- you can always call me, 24/7. You know that, right? I love you, son.

Brooke: I hate seeing him like this.

Tad: Listen, I changed my mind. I want you to do me a favor. I want you to hook up with this guy McKinnen, McLellan, whatever his name is --

Brooke: McMillan.

Tad: Make an appointment to see Jamie.

Brooke: I will, I will. Thanks.

Tad: As if you weren't going to do it already, right?

Brooke: But he let you hug him. I think that's -- that's good.

Tad: Yeah. Yeah, we're going to be okay. I mean, we're going to get through this one way or another.

Brooke: All right. Listen; do you want to come to dinner tonight? You know, it'll just be the three of us. You, me, and Jamie?

Tad: Yeah, I'd like that a lot.

Brooke: Okay. You know, Dr. McMillan said that safety and security is key.

Tad: For all of us.

Brooke: Yeah. Okay.

Tad: Come on, let's get some coffee.
