Mia: What are you doing here? Where's Aidan?

Kendall: He's behind the door, zipping up his pants.

Mia: Aidan? Aidan?

Kendall: He's not here, he's not here. I'll tell him you stopped by.

Mia: I'm sure you will. You're unbelievable, you know that? You know, if you really care about Aidan, you'll keep him out of this wreck you call a life. Why don't you just leave Aidan alone.

Kendall: Mia, in case you haven't noticed, I'm in big trouble here. I'm about to go on trial for murder.

Mia: And I wouldn't really be surprised if you did it.

Bianca: Oh. Dr. Lossin, hi.

Helen: Hello, Bianca. And, please, it's Helen.

Bianca: Ok, of course. Helen, come in.

Helen: I stopped by to see how you were doing.

Bianca: Well, I'm doing better than I have in a long time, thanks to you.

Helen: Does that mean you're comfortable with everything we've decided to do?

Bianca: Oh, absolutely. I mean, I'm aware of the risks of exchanging my blood for Kendall's in her DNA test. This is all very surreal.

Helen: No second thoughts?

Bianca: No, no, not at all. I have to do this. I want to do this. My sister may be guilty of a lot of things, including insanely bad judgment at times, and perhaps a -- a really quick temper, but she could never kill anyone. Not even Michael.

Helen: Who do you think did?

Bianca: Well, everyone who loved me hated him. They thought that he was the devil incarnate. Helen, do you think -- do you think I'm crazy for having this -- this baby?

Erica: Jack? Is there something wrong with Bianca? Is there something you're not telling me?

Jack: No, no, no, no. I was just -- I was just thinking what a happy day this almost was, huh?

Erica: You hesitated before you said that.

[Phone rings]

Erica: Oh, Jack, please don't take that call.

Jack: I have to. Hi. Montgomery.

Livia: Jack, it's Livia. Can you meet me at the courthouse right away? The judge has granted our motion on the hearing to stop Kendall's DNA test.

Jack: I'll be right there. Sweetheart, I'm needed in court.

Erica: But what about Bianca?

Jack: Well, we'll talk about her tonight and anything else you want, ok? I got to go.

David: Hey. I'll have a beer, whatever's on tap.

J.R.: Well, if it isn't Dr. Doom. Is this where the low road leads?

David: J.R. It's always a pleasure. I hear congratulations are in order -- married, kid on the way. Bravo. You've done good.

J.R.: Yeah, yeah. You want to know what the best part of it is? I didn't have to drug my wife to get her to marry me.


Babe: Jamie, if that is you, I swear to God I am calling the cops!

Tad: Ow!

Babe: Oh, my God. Oh, I'm so sorry!

Tad: No, no, no, that's fine. It's my fault, it's my fault. I'm sorry. Just call 911, ok? So, can I come in? Whoa.

Babe: Why not? Everyone else does.

Tad: God, I'm sorry about, you know, the weirdness. Normally I don't make a habit to, you know, sneak around, but I just thought, well, that you and I should have this conversation in private.

Babe: You and your son are torching my life! I hate you, I hate you, I hate you! Get out of here!

Tad: What did I do?

Babe: What did you do? Oh, you taught him to be just like you -- cute and charming -- oh, and to say all the right things!

Tad: Stop it! Stop! Whoa! I did not. Don't be ridiculous. Some men are just, you know, naturally gifted.

Babe: Oh, you stop! Get over here! You get out from under that bed!

Tad: Whoa! If you promise to stop hitting me.

Babe: Fine. So what did you do? Did you go home and just pat him on the back, give him a thumbs-up? "Way to go, kid -- you got the girl, I got the mama."

Tad: No. No. It wasn't anything like that. I give you my word, ok? I promise you. Just don't hit me anymore. I just wanted to apologize.

Babe: Like I believe that.

Tad: It's true. I swear it's true. You know, I just wanted to make sure that, you know, considering the situation, you're all right.

Babe: Why do you even care?

Tad: Why do I care? Oh, come on, Babe, that's not fair. I mean, J.R. is my son, too. My boys are making you this miserable, and I feel responsible.

Babe: Well, it is kind of your fault. You're the one that encourages them.

Tad: That's -- no, that's not true. Listen, I -- I encourage them to be themselves, to stand up for what they believe in, not to -- not to hurt you or hurt anybody. I'm not blind. I can see what's going on, and I'm sorry. Right now you feel like you got the weight of the world on your shoulders, and, you know, you're living your worst nightmare, but that's going to end. You will get through this somehow, ok? I promise you. It's ok. Come on. Come here.

Babe: Oh, my God. Are you hitting on me?

David: J.R., I was being civil. So why don't you stumble back to your seat and leave me alone.

J.R.: The way you left all the women in this town alone?

David: Well, well, then learn from my mistakes. Walk away.

J.R.: Was that what my mother was? A mistake?

David: I'm not going to do this with you.

J.R.: I say you are.

David: J.R., I loved your mother.

J.R.: No. No, you took advantage of her when she was sick and vulnerable.

David: Your mother came to me. She was desperately ill. Her kidney failed, she was having problems with her heart, and I saved her life.

J.R.: And you made her feel like she should save yours. You know, I remember how bad I wanted to knock your teeth out into the back of your throat for what you did to her and dad.

David: You already tried that once, you remember? It didn't work.

J.R.: Yeah, I was a kid then. I couldn't really hurt you, not the way I wanted to. I'm not a kid anymore, Doc.

Livia: Hey! Welcome back. Did you have a great holiday with Danielle?

Derek: When were you going to spring this on me, Livia? Was I supposed to just show up here in court for the first big case since making chief to find out that my sister is the lead counsel for the defense?

Livia: Just step back, Derek. This is a great opportunity for me. This is a high-profile case with a lot of press. This is a great chance for me to jump-start my practice.

Derek: It doesn't bother you that we're on different teams?

Livia: No. It was bound to happen.

Derek: Livia, Kendall Hart murdered Michael Cambias. Woman, you're going to wish you never heard of this case.

Livia: Well, I hope you don't take it personal when I prove otherwise.

Alan: Derek, Livia.

Livia: Congratulations, Alan.

Alan: We haven't even gotten started yet.

Livia: Well, it was just such nice work your finding that misogynist, senile jurist to order my client to have an amniocentesis. I'm just so sorry that you're never going to get to see it executed.

Justin: Oh, that's not the only thing we're going to see executed. Your client is going to fry.

Alan: Justin, sit down and shut up.

Jack: Hello, Alan.

Alan: Jackson.

Jack: Livia, thank you very much for the heads-up.

Livia: Well, you're just in time to see the prosecution's case against Kendall crumble.

Alan: If your client's innocent, why file a motion to stop the DNA test?

Livia: Because an amniocentesis is a serious violation of my client's fourth and Fifth Amendment rights. Oh, I've also ruled out trial by fire in case you wanted Kendall to stick her hand in the flame to see if she blisters.

Alan: She's guilty, Livia.

Livia: And you can't prove it. Your case is circumstantial at best. The case is never going to make it past a jury.

Kendall: Aidan chose to stand by me. I didn't ask him to. Then again, that's what a loyal friend does, not that you would understand.

Mia: Oh, I understand. I understand that Aidan feels obligated to see this case through, but then that's it. He is done with you.

Kendall: Hmm. You sure about that? Believe what you want.

Mia: Oh, I will. Especially when it comes from Aidan. Sorry, Kendall, but it looks like you've lost your best mate.

Kendall: Sure about that? I mean, my trial hasn't even started yet, but here I am, alone in Aidan's motel room.

Mia: Well, that would probably be because Aidan was tired of dealing with you and left. Either that or you broke in.

Kendall: Or maybe my head was just spinning from my glorious goodbye kiss we just had. Mia, you can stay. You can leave. Hell, you can spontaneously combust for all I care. But just do it a few inches to the right. I can't see the TV. Thanks.

Maria Chambers: I'm Maria Chambers reporting for VH1 satellite radio on XM channel 26 and WRCW TV in the Pine Valley Courthouse, with a recent development in the Kendall Cambias murder trial.

Kendall: What?

Maria: The judges agreed to hear oral arguments as the defense fights to overturn a court-ordered DNA test on Mrs. Cambias' unborn child.

Kendall: Oh, my God.

Mia: Kendall, did you know about this?

Kendall: No, no, I did not. I have to go. I have to go.

Helen: Bianca, I've known women who were raped who couldn't terminate their pregnancies fast enough. And then some who decided on adoption. And then I've known some like you who have decided to keep their baby.

Bianca: Who made the right decision?

Helen: Oh, they all did. No decision was right or wrong, just different paths on the road to recovery.

[Phone rings]

Helen: Oh, excuse me. Hello? I'm already there. What's going on? All right. I'll get there as soon as I can.

Bianca: Who was that?

Helen: Kendall. She's on her way to the courthouse. The judge agreed to a hearing on the DNA test.

Bianca: Well, we're ready.

Helen: Ok.

Bianca: Helen? When does it stop? When does it stop haunting you?

Helen: Just a little pinch, then we're done.

Bianca: Ok. Ugh.

Helen: I'm sorry.

Bianca: It's no big deal.

Helen: The answer to your other question is never. It never stops. That's not to say it doesn't get better, but nothing will stop that pain completely. What people don't realize, what these men are never punished for in court or prison is theft of who you once were. They take that with them.

Bianca: Do you ever get it back?

Helen: In bits and pieces. Rape pushes you past the point of no return. And from that moment on, there will always be two of you -- the woman you were before and the woman you are after.

Bianca: I don't think I've quite figured out who she is yet.

Helen: You will.

Bianca: How old were you when you were --

Helen: 18. Sophomore year in college.

Bianca: I'm 19.

Helen: He drove the school security van.

Bianca: How did you deal with that?

Helen: Not very well at first. Eventually, I found my way to a rape crisis center and met some people there who could help me. And with their help, I was able to start my life over.

Bianca: Is that why you became a doctor?

Helen: No, no, I've always wanted to be a doctor. But my experience led me to dedicate my practice specifically to women, particularly rape survivors like you and me. Are you all right? Any lightheadedness or nausea?

Bianca: No, I'm fine.

Helen: Excellent. I've got to get this over to the courthouse. Kendall's waiting for me.

Bianca: Oh, well, Helen, thank you so much again.

Helen: Oh, any time. And if you need to talk, call.

Bianca: Yeah, I will.

Helen: Ok. And keep going to group. It'll help you more than you realize.

Bianca: Thanks.

Kendall: Excuse me. Would it kill you guys to pick up a phone? If you're fighting for my future, I would like to be here nonetheless.

Bailiff: All rise. The honorable Judge Hannah Lampert.

Kendall: That's the same judge who presided over my arraignment.

Jack: Kendall, Kendall, just -- just be quiet, please?

Kendall: She let Michael walk for raping Bianca.

Livia: It's who we drew.

Kendall: Well, then I'm totally screwed.

Bailiff: Be seated.

Judge: I have read briefs from both sides, and I would like to make a ruling on this matter today, so if you are prepared to present oral arguments, I will hear them now. Mr. Singer?

Alan: Your honor, our case is contingent upon two facts -- the whereabouts of the defendant on the night of the murder and the time of the murder itself.

Judge: As are most cases, counselor.

Alan: The defendant claims she not only married the deceased on the night in question but, as a result, is pregnant with his child.

Judge: And what is the relevance of the DNA test?

Alan: We believe our timeline for the murder makes the alleged wedding of the defendant in Las Vegas on August 29 highly unlikely, and the resulting pregnancy by the deceased impossible.

Judge: Mm-hmm. And is there any evidence to back up this theory?

Alan: A sworn statement by the defendant, your honor, in which she states that her intimate relationship with the deceased had been over for months prior to his death and that the only time she had sexual relations with the deceased thereafter was in Las Vegas on the night in question. Succinctly put, your honor, if that baby is not Michael Cambias', it supports our time of death and rules out any credible alibi on the part of the defendant.

Judge: Ms. Frye?

Livia: I'll be brief, your honor. Amniocentesis is an invasive and potentially life-threatening procedure for both the mother and the child. The prosecution is well aware of this and has shown absolutely no regard for the well-being of either of them. Furthermore, if they're allowed to go forth with this procedure, it would be a gross violation of my client's Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights. Your honor, if the prosecution's case is really contingent on the paternity of this child, perhaps the court needs to seriously reconsider the credibility of their so-called investigation.

Judge: Well, I have had to make a number of complex decisions from this bench over the years, but this one is a no-brainer. The previous court order for an amniocentesis is overruled.

[Gallery buzzes]

Judge: I will not allow anyone to put an innocent child at risk. Now, as far as the date for the voir dire goes --

Alan: Your honor, the state would like to request a postponement of trial.

Judge: On what grounds, Mr. Singer?

Alan: We would like to postpone trial until after the defendant's baby is born, your honor, when paternity can be determined without putting the child at risk.

J.R.: Oops. I'm sorry.

David: J.R., don't do something stupid you'll regret tomorrow.

J.R.: So if I knock your butt into next week, I got a few days to feel guilty about it, huh?

[Crowd jeers]

Krystal: Hey, hey, hey! Hey, back off! Back off, bubba! Back off, or I'll open up my own can of whup-ass on your sorry self!

Man: Whoo-hoo!

Tad: I must be losing my touch. Of course I'm not hitting on you, ok? That's -- that's ridiculous. That's absurd. I don't do mother-daughter acts anymore, you know? That's not true, either. I haven't done it since I was Jamie's -- I haven't done it in a long time.

Babe: Then what was with that hug?

Tad: What do you mean, "what's with the hug"? What is wrong you? It was a display of humanity, of compassion. I hate to see the way that this thing is tearing you up.

Babe: Right. Like you don't blame me for why J.R. and Jamie are tearing at each other.

Tad: No, I -- look, you want the truth? Yeah, I hate this little war they started between the two of them. Any father would. But you know something? They started it. It's their problem. They're going to have to solve it. Your problem, you know, maybe -- just maybe -- I can do something about.

Babe: What are you going to do? You going to lecture me?

Tad: Why? Why would I do that? Because you have a big heart? You've got enough room in there for both of my sons? Come on.

Babe: J.R. is the one that I love. He is the one that has my heart.

Tad: I didn't mean it that way, sweetheart. I believe you. I want you and J.R. to be happy. But let's face it, something -- something happened with Jamie, right? And as long as he's got a piece of your heart, J.R. is going to feel it. He's going to know something's missing.

Babe: You know, I just want my marriage to be great again. I really do hate all this.

Tad: I know. Believe me, do I know. And it will be. Like I say, I give you my word, this is a mess. Be patient. Everything will be ok. In the meantime, my whole family is driving you crazy. You probably feel like you haven't got anybody on your side, you know, so I just want you to know that from the sidelines, I am.

Babe: No, I've got my mom. She's plenty. She's the whole team and a bunch of cheerleaders all on her own.

Tad: Yeah, there's a thought. Well, hey, look, I'd make a good mascot. Could I offer you some advice?

Babe: Can I stop you?

Tad: No, this will be relatively painless. Like I say, I've -- I got my black belt in screwing up, and over the years I've learned the hard way -- no matter how painful, if you have a little faith in people and you give them the truth, there really isn't much in life that you can't work your way through.

Babe: I'm sorry I hit you.

Tad: You're sorry? You know, it's really weird. For such a small person, you pack a hell of a wallop even with a pillow.

Babe: You're ok, Mr. Martin.

Tad: When somebody who looks like you calls me that, I feel really old. Just, you know, call me Tad.

Babe: Ok, Tad. I can trust you, right?

Tad: Absolutely.

Babe: Then I'm going to tell you the truth. I'm going to tell you everything.

Krystal: So who is Mr. Tough guy here?

David: My name is David Hayward.

Krystal: What's your beef with J.R.?

David: I don't have any. Junior here just needs to walk it off. Right, Junior?

Krystal: You must have done something to get him all riled up.

J.R.: Yeah. Yeah, he got up this morning. My mother didn't.

Krystal: All right, you know, I think I could use a drink. How about you?

J.R.: Whatever.

Krystal: Great. Bartender, two shots of t, hold the worm. Come on, let's go sit down. You're all wound up today.

J.R.: He had it coming, Krystal.

Krystal: So who is this David guy, anyway?

J.R.: He's a leech. He latches onto other people's women just like Jamie -- seduces them and destroys their marriage.

Krystal: Oh, come on. Now, nobody is destroying your marriage. You can't let Jamie get to you like this.

J.R.: The way he got to my wife?

Krystal: Oh, come -- now, that is just bull.

J.R.: Krystal, will you stop trying to protect Babe? I know that she slept with Jamie. I know that the baby might not be mine.

Krystal: You just better keep those crazy theories to yourself. I do not want you upsetting her like this.

J.R.: Babe already knows what I think.

Krystal: Oh, my God, what did you do?

J.R.: Hell, what about what she did to me?

Krystal: Listen, Babe is pregnant and you're acting like this? She's probably home crying her eyes out. I thought better of you, J.R.

[Knock on door]

Bianca: Oh, uh -- coming. Hang on. I'm coming. Hi.

Erica: Hi. Hi, sweetheart.

Bianca: Hi. I'm so happy to see you.

Erica: Honey, what happened to your arm?

Bianca: Oh, um -- I -- Maggie got me this rocking chair, and I was pulling pieces out of the box. I must have scraped it. It's no big deal.

Erica: Don't tell me that you plan to put that thing together yourself?

Bianca: Well, that was the plan.

Erica: But, sweetheart, you know, you can hire someone to do that for you.

Bianca: Oh, and then miss all the fun of screaming at the directions?

Erica: Ooh, there's so many pieces. I mean, if you want, I can try and help you with it if you want an extra pair of helping hands. I've used a screwdriver once or twice.

Bianca: Mom, you don't have to do that.

Erica: Well, I know, but I want to. I want to. I think it's exactly what I need.

Bianca: Ok, well, I have separated everything into various piles. There's the screws and the bolts and the chair pieces, and then there's the stuff I don't recognize. That's the big pile.

Erica: Oh, boy. This reminds me of that Christmas Eve. You were maybe 5 years old, and you walked in on me as I was desperately trying to put together that dollhouse.

Bianca: Yeah, well, you woke me up screaming at the box.

Erica: Do you remember what I said to you when you caught me?

Bianca: Of course I remember. You told me that Santa had to deliver presents to children in Europe and that you had offered to help him out by putting the dollhouse together yourself.

Erica: I was so worried that you weren't going to believe me.

Bianca: Oh, Mom, I was 5 years old. I believed every word you said. I thought you'd hung the moon. I still do.

Livia: Your honor, I object to a postponement. My client waived her rights to a preliminary hearing under the assumption that she would receive an immediate trial date.

Alan: I apologize if a postponement interferes with the defendant's social calendar.

Livia: Your honor, you have already ruled that the issue of the baby's paternity is specious and without merit.

Judge: I agreed that an amniocentesis violated your client's civil rights. I never said I found the issue of paternity itself specious.

Livia: Then I would ask your honor to reconsider.

[Judge bangs gavel]

Judge: That said, a postponement until after the child is born to safely determine paternity isn't out of the question.

Kendall: No, your honor, you don't have to wait.

Jack: Kendall, please sit down.

Kendall: No! I can prove that I'm having Michael Cambias' child right now.

Livia: Your honor, I would like to apologize on behalf of my client.

Kendall: No -- excuse me. Excuse me, listen to me -- your honor, your honor, if you'll allow me, I can solve the problem of paternity. I swear I can.

Judge: Very well.

Kendall: These are the credentials for Dr. Helen Lossin. She was the head of Ob/Gyn at Cleveland Clinic for almost seven years. She's been awarded numerous medical and humanitarian awards.

Judge: Yes, I'm aware of her work, Mrs. Cambias, as well as her reputation, but I'm not sure where you're going with this.

Kendall: Your honor, Dr. Lossin is here, and she knows of a procedure to determine paternity without putting me or my child at risk.

Alan: Objection. This is highly irregular.

Livia: Your honor, I would to like to ask for a recess so that I can confer with client.

[Judge bangs gavel]

Judge: Both of you sit down. If Dr. Lossin is here and can safely resolve the issue of paternity, I for one would like to hear what she has to say. Dr. Lossin, will you please step forward?

Jack: You better have a damn good explanation for this.

Kendall: I know what I'm doing.

Jack: Oh, do you?

Kendall: Yes.

Jack: Well, I guess we're about to find out, aren't we?

Judge: Go ahead, Doctor.

Helen: There is a new noninvasive paternity test that can determine the presence of fetal cells in the mother's blood. Recent advances have allowed the extraction of these cells to determine the child's DNA.

Judge: Well, is there any margin of error?

Helen: As long as this is the mother's first pregnancy, as is the case with the defendant, the findings will be conclusive. At Mrs. Cambias' request, I have already drawn and sealed her blood. I would like to send the sample to be tested and have the results entered into evidence.

Alan: Your honor, I object.

Helen: The procedure had a number of witnesses.

Alan: Oh, then the sample could never have been compromised.

Jack: Kendall, what the hell have you done?

Kendall: I am saving my life.

Judge: Overruled. Who were these witnesses, Dr. Lossin?

Helen: Dr. David Hayward, Ryan Lavery, and the defendant's sister, Bianca Montgomery.

Alan: Objection!

Bianca: Do you think it'll hold up?

Erica: Well, you certainly won't tip over. One of the legs is on backwards.

Bianca: Oh, no. Oh, my goodness. Oh, Mom. I've missed this so much -- us just getting a chance to hang out and spend some time together.

Erica: Oh, I miss that, too, honey. But I promise you, we're going to do much more of this this year. This year is going to be a great year for us.

Bianca: Oh, I hope so.

Erica: I am so proud of you. You have just come through all of this -- this really horrible time with such flying colors. I mean, you just radiate strength, honey. Grown up before my very eyes. You amaze me, Bianca. You inspire me. Oh, honey, please don't do that.

Bianca: No, I'm not doing anything.

Erica: You're putting distance between us, and you've done that a lot lately. Come on, honey, please, tell me -- tell me what's wrong. Just tell me.

J.R.: Well, well, Jamie. Glad you could make it. I've been wanting to belt somebody all night.

Jamie: I don't want to fight with you, J.R.

J.R.: I never said you had to hit back.

Jamie: Look, you can say that I'm dead to you and that you don't have a brother anymore, and I get why you feel that way. But you and I have one thing in common.

J.R.: No, no, no, don't say it.

Jamie: We both care about Babe and the baby. She's a wreck about this, J.R., and I don't want to see either one of them get hurt because you and I can't stop going at each other.

J.R.: Yeah, that's great. Another noble Martin. Good job.

Jamie: Can't we both just put our differences aside for a little while, for their sake? Aren't you going to say anything?

J.R.: I'm sorry, Jamie.

Babe: J.R. is so mad at me already. I mean, if he even finds out what I've done, he's never going to forgive me. I just know it.

Tad: Come on, that's impossible. How bad can it be? Look, Babe, if you don't trust me, all right, and tell me, I won't know whether or not I can help you, right?

Babe: I don't even know how it happened.

Tad: It's ok, it's ok. You just take a deep breath and tell me.

Babe: Ok. Well, the truth is -- and it's going to just feel so good to finally say it -- Mama, you killed him!

Krystal: Oops. Now, hang on a second. Shh, shh, shh.

[Tad groans]

Krystal: No, no, see, I just knocked him out. He's ok. Ok, get the door. Get the door. Close it.

Babe: What were you thinking?

Krystal: That it was either him or you, and he was closer. What were you thinking? That's Jamie's dad. He's the last person you should be running off at the mouth to!

Babe: Well, he said that I could trust him.

Krystal: Honey, that's what they all say when they want something. Come on. Tad is just trying to protect Jamie the same way I'm trying to protect you, and you're not making it easy on me.

Babe: Well, what does it even matter, anyway? The truth is all going to come out now. It's ruined. It's over.

Krystal: Babe, that's when you and I are at our best, ok?

Babe: Yeah, well, you didn't hear what J.R. said to me today.

Krystal: No, I talked to J.R., and he told me everything.

Babe: Well, what are we going to do about him?

Krystal: All right, help me out. Grab that blanket over there. Ok, give it here. Come on, get that end. There you go.

Babe: What do we --

Krystal: Get me that -- let's go, we got to get him on the blanket, come on! Roll him over.

Babe: Ok --

Krystal: Come on, get him. Ok, down here.

Babe: Ok, ok.

Krystal: Come on.

Babe: We can do it here.

Krystal: Get that corner. All right, here we go.

Babe: One, two --

Krystal: Here we go.

[Babe groans]

Krystal: Pull him, pull him. One last push here. One, two --

[Babe and Krystal groan]

Krystal: Ok. Great. Ok. Ok, ok, now we're going to have to move this over here. Here, grab those two things. Get that off.

Babe: What are we doing?

Krystal: Come on, we're going to move this over here against the wall. Don't want any more Martins coming through this wall. Ok. There's one problem solved.

Babe: Mama, what in the world are we going to do?

Jamie: You're sorry?

J.R.: Yeah. I'm sorry that I ever thought of you as a brother. I'm sorry my mom ever married your dad. I'm sorry that we ever met because it's all been a big waste of my time.

Jamie: Look, come on, J.R., you don't mean that.

J.R.: Aw, does the truth hurt? You were never anything to me, Jamie.

J.R.: Bartender, give me another round.

Bartender: I'm cutting you off, pal. It's time you went home.

J.R.: Do you know who I am? I said give me another round!

David: Nobody gives a damn who you are, J.R.

J.R.: Shut up, Hayward.

David: Want to know something, Junior? A wife who's happy at home doesn't usually cheat on her husband. So why don't you stop getting drunk, go home, and make your wife happy.

Bianca: That night before Michael raped me, he wanted me to tell him my happiest memory. Do you know what I told him? I told him about the time that you took me to the movie premiere in Hollywood. You made such a fuss over me that day -- my hair and my makeup.

Erica: You looked like a princess.

Bianca: But the best part was when we both walked down the red carpet and you held my hand. All those movie stars who wanted to have their picture taken with you -- you could have gone with any one of them, but you chose me.

Erica: I will always choose you.

Judge: Dr. Lossin, you're confident that this procedure will determine paternity without endangering the defendant or the child?

Helen: Yes, your honor.

Judge: Does either side have any objection?

Livia: No, your honor.

Judge: Mr. Singer?

Alan: Your honor, while the prosecution has no doubt of Dr. Lossin's abilities, we would like to reserve the right for further research into the accuracy of this test. Additionally, we ask the court's permission to take another blood sample from the defendant and witness that procedure ourselves.

Livia: Your honor, Dr. Lossin is a highly respected member of her field. To even question her integrity --

Alan: The prosecution has no problem with Dr. Lossin. Our concerns are about the three witnesses.

Livia: Your honor, the only real question here is whether there are fetal cells containing Michael Cambias' DNA in that vial. If the prosecution would stick to facts instead of paranoia, they would realize that there is no possible way to manufacture evidence of this nature. Michael Cambias has been dead for months. Where else could we find his DNA if not from Mrs. Cambias?

Judge: I agree. I'll allow the blood to be tested and the results entered into evidence. The prosecution's request is denied. Now, are there any other motions for the court to consider?

Alan: Yes, your honor. I would like to file a motion for you to recuse yourself from this case.

[Gallery buzzes]

Alan: Your dismissal of the rape charges against Michael Cambias is what set this chain of events into motion. I believe there could be prejudice on your part, which would favor the defense.

Judge: I disagree. You'll take the judge you drew, Mr. Singer, and that is me. Voir dire will be scheduled for January 20 at 9:00 a.m. Dr. Lossin, will you please turn over the vial containing the defendant's blood to the bailiff? Court adjourned.

[Judge bangs gavel]

Bailiff: All rise.

Kendall: Well, looks like things finally went our way.

Livia: You were lucky today, Kendall. If you pull one more surprise like that, I will walk off this case. Do you understand me?

Kendall: Perfectly.

Bartender: Don't try it again, son.

J.R.: All right. All right.

David: Sorry about the disturbance.

Bartender: Angry young guy, that one.

David: Yeah. He's got plenty to be angry about.

Babe: Mama, if this paternity test turns out wrong, I'm going to lose J.R. forever.

Krystal: Babe, you got to calm down now. All this carrying on is not good for that baby. Come on now. Why don't you lay down and get some rest. Here, put your little puppies up here. Just relax. My sweet girl. Don't you worry. We're going to find a way to fix all this.

Babe: You got the remote, mama?

Krystal: There you go.

Babe: Thanks.

Maria Chambers: Mrs. Cambias, Judge Lampert has overturned the court order for an amniocentesis because of the risk it posed to you and your unborn child. But she did agree to another kind of paternity test. Could you tell us about that?

Kendall: Sure. This new test requires only a blood sample from me. The test will detect cells from my baby in my blood that will match my late husband's DNA and prove once and for all that I'm carrying his child.

Krystal: Did you just hear that? I think we just found an answer to our prayers.

Erica: I am so glad I spent this time with you. I mean, spending this time with you just means so much to me, honey.

Bianca: Oh, it does to me, too. Are you sure you're ok, Mom?

Erica: Thanks to you, my darling girl -- oh, I feel so much better. I love you.

Bianca: I love you, too.

Erica: Ok.

[Knock on door]

Bianca: Oh. Uncle Jack.

Jack: Hi.

Bianca: Hi. You just missed Mom.

Jack: No, actually, I saw her on the way out, and she looked -- she looked very happy, Bianca.

Bianca: Yeah, she is. We spent the afternoon together. It was -- it was really nice.

Jack: So I guess it's safe to assume that you haven't told her the truth.

Bianca: About what?

Jack: That you're still pregnant with Michael's baby.

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Jack: You're still carrying Michael's child. Let's go tell Erica right now.

Greenlee: Save me from myself. Please, you have to help me, Ryan. Just for tonight.

Krystal: Your time-out isn't over yet.

Tad: How dare you hit me!

Sean: We're here to make an arrest.
