(Missed the first 15 minutes)
Simone: I have a deadline, Tad.
Tad: Well, I'm sorry, but you're going to miss it, because you and I are going to have this out right here, right now.
J.R.: Give me the purse. Come on, come on. I don't got all day. Hand it over to me. My father's not your personal ATM.
Babe: Just tell Adam his money's safe. Ok, you caught me.
J.R.: What was this to do? To bankroll a new start? You know, so you and Jamie can run off someplace --
Babe: Oh, don't be ridiculous.
Jamie: No way, man.
J.R.: Well, $20,000 really wouldn't get you that far, anyway, would it?
Babe: I could have taken a lot more, but I left it in the safe.
J.R.: You afraid we wouldn't realize it would come up missing?
Babe: I didn't think I needed more.
J.R.: Why not? Why don't you tell me why you stole it. Or maybe you might be a little more comfortable telling my father, hmm?
Babe: He wouldn't understand.
J.R.: Or maybe you could take it up with the cops. I'm sure he'll be more than happy to hand you over to the police. He would press for maximum sentence. By the way, what is a sentence for grand larceny? Anybody? I guess we'll find out.
Jamie: Tell him! Tell J.R. why you took the cash.
Babe: I -- I was going shopping.
J.R.: Uh-uh, no. You have credit cards.
Babe: Well, I didn't want you to see the bill.
J.R.: Why not?
Babe: Because it was supposed to be a surprise for you.
J.R.: Wow. Well, then, why don't you let me in on the surprise? Or I call my father and then he calls the police.
Jamie: You don't have to call anybody. I'll tell you everything you want to know.
Kendall: And this change of heart was brought on by what, a dream you had, a vision?
Ryan: There was no change of heart. I've always loved you. That's why I freaked when you accused me of conspiring with Greenlee to bring you down. But I wasn't taking into consideration how you felt -- furious and frightened and looking for someone to blame.
Kendall: Ok, and you had this revelation when?
Ryan: Bianca and I had a talk.
Kendall: What -- Bianca put you up to this?
Ryan: She just reminded me of who I was dealing with.
Kendall: No, I don't need my sister pleading with you to propose to me.
Ryan: We just discussed some of your character traits, Kendall, like your stubborn streak and your nuclear temper, and let's not forget your iron will and your need to control.
Kendall: Flattery will get you nowhere.
Ryan: Ok. I want that will working for us. If anything happens that could threaten what we have, I want as much fury as you can whomp up.
Kendall: Ok, sure, you say that now, but --
Ryan: Can it get under my skin? Sure, but it's worth it. You're smart and -- and you're so beautiful and you're so sexy and funny. Is it so hard for you to believe that I want to share every magical, every, every crazy-making moment of your life together? Is that so hard?
Kendall: You still haven't denied that you set me up for Greenlee.
Greenlee: Mind if I field that? Kendall, I -- I was awful to you last night. I let you think that Ryan was using you and that he was using me to go after you. I was terrible to you in court, and last night I just made things worse. But get this clear, once and for all, ok? Ryan had absolutely nothing to do with what I did to expose you. In fact, he tried to get me to accept your pregnancy thing and leave you alone, and I wish that I'd listened to him. There are a lot of things that I can't make right, but if I can set this straight -- well, maybe things can work between the two of you. I am sorry for so much. No, no. Make that everything.
Ryan: Well, if that doesn't clear everything up, I don't know what will. So, when's the wedding?
Bianca: David, hi. Come in.
Bianca: Have you seen Mom?
David: Yeah. Yeah, I have.
Bianca: She's talking to you even though you helped me cover up my pregnancy?
David: Don't worry about Erica. She's going to process this.
Bianca: She's furious with you, isn't she?
David: Well, let's just say she's not pleased. But your mother adores you, Bianca. She is thoroughly devoted to you.
Bianca: Everything's changed now.
David: No. No. Your mother's love for you will never change.
Bianca: But will she be able to love my baby?
David: Yes, she will. So don't get yourself all stressed, worrying about what might happen.
Bianca: David, even if I could put my mother out of my mind, Kendall's done for.
David: Yeah, well, that's why I stopped by. Everything is going to be all right, ok? I've been subpoenaed by the defense.
Bianca: No, David, you can't.
David: Relax. I'm not the only one. By the time the parade of would-be Michael murderers is over, they'll never convict Kendall. Listen, I'm really sorry about the way things turned out.
Bianca: Well, David, you did everything that you could for me and my baby. Look, I wanted Mom to know. I did, eventually. You know what? Stuff happens. You just have to deal. My baby and I are going to be ok. We're going to be just great.
Tad: Simone, I realize I should have told you about Liza and Krystal, and I wanted to. Matter of fact, I tried, right here, the other day. The minute I started to come clean, you just kind of -- you just kind of knocked me off track. All I want to know is if there's anything I could do or say that would keep you from hating me --
Simone: I don't hate you.
Tad: Well, then why do I feel like I should duck?
Simone: You made yourself more than clear when you said that our relationship was supposed to stay casual. I'm the one that threw in the l word. I couldn't help it no more than you can help being so you.
Tad: Sorry that you got hurt and that things had to end like this.
Simone: Hey, who's ending? I mean, just because you're not ready for monogamy right this very second doesn't mean I'm cashing in my chips and running home.
Tad: Is there something in the water around here?
Simone: I'm in the game, Tad, because you've been honest with me. Oh, yes, I'm most definitely a player.
Tad: My God, the women of Pine Valley have really changed in the last 10 years.
Simone: Is that a complaint?
Tad: Hell, no. It's just -- you know, I'm logically a little concerned that eventually things are going to get really, really ugly.
Simone: I feel like rising to this new challenge, yeah. And trust me, I can take care of myself.
Tad: Yeah, so -- watch it, ok? Whatever happens with Liza, with Krystal --
Simone: Oh, no --
Tad: It doesn't matter? It's just --
Simone: Yeah, bring it on. You know what? Krystal, she's so busy being free and easy that she's attracted to any man in pants. And Liza, is it?
Simone: Yeah, she's a relic.
Tad: Be careful, ok? No, I mean, because if, you know, Liza hears you say that, she's going to tear something up.
Simone: Yeah, well, let her do it. Let her try. The only reason why Liza wants to recapture her past with you is because she's too damned scared to break out and go find her own future.
Tad: So what's your take on you?
Simone: Oh, I'm perfect for you in every way. And I'll prove it.
J.R.: Nobody steals money from my family. The fact that the thief was my own wife --
Jamie: She did it for you.
J.R.: I don't need $20,000 of somebody else's money.
Jamie: You are so close to brain-dead. She did it to bribe me.
J.R.: Because you know something that she wants you to keep quiet.
Jamie: No -- to stay away. She was hoping that the money would convince me to leave town and never come back.
J.R.: Wasn't it enough?
Jamie: Oh, I'm sorry. No amount could ever buy me off.
J.R.: Oh, it's too bad. It's too bad. I guess it's the thought that counts, though, right?
Jamie: She was just on her way home to return the money, so you can shove your righteous indignation. It's a waste of energy.
J.R.: Yeah. Yeah. It was nice talking to you.
Jamie: Maybe you ought to appreciate what you have instead of working so hard to destroy it.
J.R.: Thanks for the tip.
Jamie: If he's dumb enough to hand you over to his dad or the cops, just call me. I'll scrape up your bail.
J.R.: What a guy!
J.R.: All right, Babe. I'm still waiting for the truth here.
Babe: You already got it.
J.R.: What made you think that you could buy off Jamie?
Babe: Why not? I already tried asking and begging. Why not bribery?
J.R.: And theft?
Babe: I looked at it as an unauthorized loan.
J.R.: Oh, yeah, yeah.
Babe: What? You want to hear me say I'm sorry? I'm sorry -- sorry that Jamie didn't take the money and go. I was so desperate. I mean, the way you've just been poking at me and needling me --
J.R.: Oh, I? I led you to a life of crime? That's good.
Babe: Yes. You've been so cold and unfeeling, I didn't even know what else to do.
J.R.: What did I tell you this morning?
Babe: Something along the lines of "Get used to it or get lost."
J.R.: Yeah, well, it won't last forever. Just until the baby's born.
Babe: J.R., if we wait that long, there's no way we'll ever get back what we lost.
J.R.: I'm sorry, Babe. There's nothing I can do about that.
Babe: But I can -- I can prove that you're the father before the baby's born.
J.R.: If this involves Opal and her stupid tarot cards --
Babe: No, it's a new kind of test that somebody developed. And so what they do is they take a blood sample from the mama and they take some DNA tests from the daddy, and then they play mix and match.
J.R.: Is this what you're suggesting?
Babe: Well, yeah. Why not? Well, since we made the baby together, I'll have some of your cells in my blood, so they'll just round up some of them and compare it to your DNA, and then we'll have the proof.
J.R.: Wow. Oh, that sounds easy enough.
Babe: So you'll do it?
J.R.: Yeah, you're damn right I'll do it.
Babe: Great. Well, there's not really that many labs that do it, so I'll make some calls next week and we'll set up an appointment.
J.R.: Well, it's just a blood test. I mean --
Babe: Well, yeah, they draw blood, but it's a lot more complicated than that.
J.R.: Well, you know what? Why don't we just do it now?
Simone: Yeah, we'll do that when I don't have a deadline.
Tad: So, the -- the kiss was just some kind of test?
Simone: No, more like a sample of what's to come, you know, now that you've been honest and I know that you're still genuinely interested in me.
Tad: So what happens now?
Simone: Oh. Well, that's simple. I'll call you when I am done with work and I have some time to play.
Greenlee: Leo -- Leo, I've done it this time, and there's no coming back from it. Not by myself, anyway. It's the worst yet. You loved Bianca so much, and I've ruined her life. I hurt Ryan, Kendall. She's facing prison and worse, all because I was jealous and angry and incredibly off-the-chart stupid. You knew how awful I could be, but you loved me anyway, and you made me a better person for a while. Now I've backslid, Leo. I've worse than backslid -- crashed and burned. The whole town hates me. I hate me. Funny. So many times I mess up and I drive people away when all I want to do is draw them close. I was so close this time, Leo. My family was right there, waiting to include me. Jackson, Bianca, even Reggie was willing to get to know me, but I blew that big-time. Kendall -- we were friends for a while, and Ryan, we could have had, like, this fabulous friend triumvirate. But I wrecked it all. Any advice, Leo? I'll do anything you say. If only you would say something. Give me a sign, even. Anything. I'll take anything.
Ryan: It took a lot for Greenlee to be able to do that. That really, really cost her.
Kendall: Hmm, cost you, too, right?
Ryan: No. Why should it?
Kendall: Well, did you have a signal, or was it just show up and noon and give the grand speech?
Ryan: What -- I didn't arrange that. That wasn't a strategy.
Kendall: Oh, please, Ryan, it was an act. It was a very convenient act.
Ryan: You think I planned that? Why? What would be my ulterior motive? If I plotted your downfall with Greenlee, then why would I follow it up trying to convince you to marry me?
Kendall: I don't know. I'm working on that.
Ryan: Well, good luck, because it doesn't make any sense.
Kendall: Well, what was her price, anyway? Was it Fusion? She loves that company more than she loves her own damned life.
Ryan: You are looking for any possible way out of this relationship, aren't you?
Kendall: Well, tell Greenlee it was a really great act, but I'm not buying it.
Ryan: There's absolutely no getting through to you on this, is there?
Kendall: I wouldn't believe Greenlee if she gave me the time of day.
Ryan: When are you going to get it through your thick skull, Kendall, that I love you? No strings. It's just that simple. I love you! I want to marry you!
Kendall: Don't touch me! Greenlee -- Greenlee's two cents is supposed to make it all worth it? Greenlee, the woman who you've slept with, the woman who threw me out of your bed on New Year's, Greenlee, the woman who destroyed me in court?
Ryan: Wait a minute. Did you look into her eyes? Could you see that she was going through hell? Did you see that?
Kendall: Fine, great. She belongs there. She's the same self-serving bitch she's always been.
Ryan: There is absolutely no getting through to you on this.
Kendall: No, I'm not that gullible, Ryan.
Ryan: If you don't want to marry me, you can just say it, ok? You don't have to play it like this.
Kendall: I don't play. I don't play games, Ryan. I leave that to you and Greenlee.
Ryan: Everything that I have said has been the truth.
Kendall: And that would be a first.
Ryan: And so is this. I will not go through this one more time.
Kendall: Good. I'm pretty sick of it, myself.
Ryan: If you keep this up, Kendall, if you let me walk out that door, it is over. No third chance, no take three, I mean over, and I will not ask you again.
Kendall: I will not be conned by you and Greenlee.
Ryan: What would we have to gain? What? Nothing.
Kendall: Nothing except an entire fortune!
Ryan: What? I could gain a fortune from you? Please tell me where you're hiding it.
Kendall: Ryan, Ryan, Bianca! Bianca is carrying the Cambias heir. This means that she would inherit the entire Cambias fortune.
Ryan: Ok, so I should get a sex change and propose to her. Only I'm not. I'm proposing to you.
Kendall: No, Ryan, by marrying me, you would gain access to all of that money and all of that power. And Bianca wants me -- she wants me to be happy, Ryan, and she's so taken by you God knows what she would sign over.
Ryan: It's easier for you to believe that than I love you?
Kendall: No --
Ryan: No, don't do this, Kendall. Please, I mean it. Don't do it.
Kendall: You and Greenlee, you and Greenlee -- you're in this together. I know that you are. I can feel it. Ryan, you're completely transparent. If you can deny it, please, please deny it! If you can deny it, just do it! Deny it!
Ryan: No matter what I do or what I say to you, you're going to pull this crap for the rest of our lives. We could be married and I could kill myself trying to make you happy, and we could live together for years and years and have kids, but you still wouldn't believe that it was all about what I felt for you, that I valued you, you more than anyone or anything in my entire life. I wouldn't be able to predict if you would welcome me home or if you would accuse me of betraying you. Well, I'm sorry, Kendall. I can't live like that. I will not live like that. Goodbye.
Kendall: Ryan, wait.
Krystal: Where are you kids off to?
J.R.: We're going to settle this paternity test once and for all. We're going to go over to the hospital.
Babe: Oh, the check! I haven't paid.
J.R.: That's ok. I'll take care of it.
Babe: Oh, Mama -- Paul didn't take the money and he hasn't agreed to rig the test.
Krystal: All right, now, just smile at me now, baby doll. There you go.
Babe: And then I couldn't take how J.R.'s been treating me, so then I told him about the new paternity test and how it can prove that he's the daddy.
Krystal: And it will.
Babe: Not if Paul's not the one picking up the results and fixing them. J.R. wants to take my blood right this minute.
Krystal: Listen, honey, it's going to take a couple weeks before the lab can send those results back anyway.
Babe: But what if the results aren't what I've been praying for?
Krystal: Then we're going to have to come up with a miracle of our own, now, aren't we?
Bianca: Great, that's just what you need.
David: Hey, crying is a good release. You feel better?
Bianca: Yes, I do.
Bianca: Thank you for being so nice.
David: Nice? I'm not nice. Ask Reggie. I'm Dr. Haywire.
[Bianca and David laugh]
David: Bianca, are you all right?
Bianca: David, I feel weird.
David: Weird, how? Did you feel the baby move? Are you in pain?
Bianca: No. It's too soon for my water to break. David, I think that's what's happening.
David: All right, all right. Just calm down.
Bianca: Oh, my God.
David: Breathe deeply and steady. Do you feel any pain? Any cramping?
Bianca: No. David, what is this? What's going on?
David: All right. I'm going to take you to the hospital. Come on.
Bianca: David, am I losing my baby?
David: Just relax. We'll find out what's going on, ok? Just take it easy. Breathe deeply.
Greenlee: I never should have left Paris. When I went there after you died, I should have stayed. Everyone would have been so much better off. So I'm going back. I held on to that apartment that you bought. Now I know why. I'll live there and think about us, and maybe I'll figure out what to do next. Maybe I'll just read, drink good red wine and learn to paint. I'll miss this place most of all. I feel so close to you here. But you'll come with me, won't you? You better. You're the only friend I've got left. What? Brilliant place to put boards. Perfect ending to a perfect morning! Ugh!
[Greenlee hyperventilates as she struggles to pull her heel out of the board]
[Greenlee screams while plunging down the mineshaft]
Boyd: Erica. I didn't know you were here.
Erica: This is my company, my office, my desk. No one else belongs here but me.
Boyd: Right, of course. I mean, I'm sorry. I just thought you had a lot to deal with right now.
Erica: Boyd, I am Enchantment, and I need those lab results yesterday.
Boyd: I'll get right on it.
Jack: Well, there you are. What the hell's going on?
Erica: Business as usual.
Jack: You didn't get any of the messages I left for you?
Erica: Honestly, a chimp would have a better grasp on this campaign.
Jack: You know, I called all over this town. I talked to Palmer, I talked to Myrtle. Nobody knew where you were. I've been half worried to death.
Erica: And why is that, Jack? Afraid I'd attack Bianca with these?
David: Nurse, we need a gurney here! How are you feeling? Any pain? Any nausea?
Bianca: No, David, just the same -- my water breaking.
David: Ok, everything's going to be fine. I'm going to page Dr. Clader. We're going to find out what's going on with you and this baby, ok?
J.R.: Well, you know, the Chandler name has its privileges.
Babe: Oh, my God, Bianca!
J.R.: Bianca --
Babe: What's going on?
J.R.: What are you doing here?
Bianca: It's my baby. I can't lose my baby!
Ryan: What? What is it? What do you want?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Jack: So what happened to your engagement?
Bianca: Please promise me you won't let them take my baby.
Greenlee: Somebody help me!
Ryan: You take the leap or not. You make us or you break us.
