Krystal: Have you lost your mind? I mean, what are you saying?

Tad: I'm saying -- what I'm saying, maybe, maybe we might have to consider the possibilities that --

Krystal: The possibility of what? Of what, that Babe's little girl was the one -- no, no, there is nothing possible about that.

Tad: Why? Why? How can we really, really be sure that Bianca's baby's the one that didn't survive when all we've got is Paul Cramer's word for it? You and I both know what that's worth --

Krystal: Tad, shut up!

Tad: Especially after everything that happened that night, ok? The storm, the flood, the rescue, a helicopter crash. Cramer could easily have been in shock. The incubators were exactly the same. Obviously, they weren't secure. What if he was confused about which baby was which? What �

[Krystal slaps Tad]

Adam: What do you mean, you haven't called the police? What are you waiting for? My granddaughter's been kidnapped!

Joe: I'm honoring Babe and J.R.'s request.

Adam: They're wrong, Joe! And so are you.

Greenlee: Something happened to Bianca?

Reggie: Why are you looking for her?

Greenlee: Is she in some kind of trouble, Kendall?

Kendall: Yes, yes, she's in trouble.

Reggie: What for?

Kendall: We think that Bianca might be suffering from delusions. It's possible that she believes Miranda is still alive.

Greenlee: Oh, no. I mean, did she go to look for her baby? Is that why you can't find her?

Kendall: No, no, she has a baby. She took Bess Chandler from the hospital and disappeared with her.

Reggie: Wait, wait, wait. Bianca would never take anyone else's child.

Kendall: I'm pretty sure she believes the baby is Miranda.

Reggie: Why would she think that?

Greenlee: Did I do this? When I took Bianca to the place where her baby disappeared and when she was really upset, but -- oh, God, is it my fault that she took that baby?

Krystal: I never thought that you could sink so low.

Tad: It's ok, it's ok. I know how upset --

Krystal: No, no, you don't know zilch about me or about anything else. You're just talking just evil.

Tad: All I'm trying to say is that somebody might have made a mistake.

Krystal: All you're saying -- all you're saying is that Bianca stole her own baby, which is another way of saying that Babe -- that Babe's little girl is dead, which is nothing but sick, it's twisted, and it's cruel as hell!

Tad: I didn't state it as a fact. I said it might be a possibility.

Krystal: No, it's just your perverted fantasy!

Tad: All right, then, fine! You prove me wrong, because I don't want to think about it, either.

Krystal: Then don't!

Tad: But, damn it, you're the one that told me that Paul Cramer's nothing if not a liar.

Krystal: Why would he be lying about this?

Tad: I don't know. Pick a reason. What if he was completely freaked out? What if he was worried about what was going to happen to him? It doesn't matter. My point is, what solid proof do we have that the baby he identified as Babe's isn't Bianca's?

Krystal: You want proof? All the proof I needed was watching Bess in her mother's arms. A mother knows her own child, and my daughter is no exception.

Babe: That baby out there -- our little girl. And I don't know if I'm ever going to be able to breathe again until we get her back.

J.R.: We'll get her back. I swear it.

Babe: But I do know one thing for sure. If she is not in our own arms, Bianca's my very next choice. She would never hurt our baby. Don't you believe that, J.R., with your whole soul?

J.R.: I have to believe that.

Babe: J.R., she's going to treat our baby just like it's her own, just like -- just like we would have if we had our little girl. And pretty soon she's going to realize that she made a mistake and she's going to bring our little Bess back. I know that with my whole heart, just like I know that -- that calling the police is probably the worst thing that we could do right now.

J.R.: You know, Babe, they can help.

Babe: They would just scare Bianca to death. She's already hurting so much from losing Miranda. J.R., promise me. Please? Just wait a little while longer?

J.R.: Ok. A little while longer.

Adam: What the hell do you think you're doing?

Ryan: Do you want me to strap you into a chair? Adam, you stay out of this business.

Adam: This is my business. This is my family and my grandchild.

Ryan: You don't think about anybody other than yourself and your offspring, Adam?

Adam: If you ever become a father, then maybe then you can tell me how far I should go protecting my son and his child.

Ryan: Don't go there, Adam.

Joe: Look, I sympathize with Adam's concerns. We've got a lot of people out there, Adam, looking for Bianca and the baby. We will get them back.

Adam: Well, you better, Joe. You're not going to be able to count the number of zeros in the lawsuit I bring against this hospital.

Joe: Yeah, well, I'm not going to stand here arguing with you. We're doing everything we can.

Adam: I am not encouraged.

Ryan: I will not let you drag Bianca through another public nightmare.

Adam: Well, then maybe you should have stopped her before she kidnapped my granddaughter.

Ryan: She did not kidnap your grand--

Adam: What do you mean? What do you call it, then? What, she borrowed her? Call it what it is, Lavery. You've got a woman on the edge and a missing child.

Ryan: She just found out that her child is dead, her baby is dead. Does that even register on any level for you?

Adam: Bianca has my sympathy. She also has my grandchild.

Ryan: All right, listen, if you call the cops, she could end up in prison, or even worse, she could end up in Oak Haven, Adam. Do you want that on your so-called conscience? Do you really want to be the one who pushes Bianca Montgomery over the edge?

Bianca: So what do you think of the story of Princess Miranda and how she and her mommy defeated the evil dragon and lived happily ever after? Did you like it? Did it sound familiar? It should, because it's our story, yours and mine. We are going to have our own happily-ever-after, I promise, in our own pretty little house. But in the meantime, I think we're going to do just fine right here.

[Knock on door]

Bianca: Oh.

Man: Deliver for Ms. Montgomery.

Bianca: Uh --

Man: Hello?

Bianca: Yeah -- no, that's me. I'm here. Sorry. Hi. Oh, my goodness. I wasn't expecting this so soon.

Man: We had another delivery on Sutton and your stuff was ready to go.

Bianca: Oh.

Man: I can put it back on the truck, but I'd rather leave it.

Bianca: Oh, no, no, thank you. I'd like you to leave it.

Man: Oh, good.

Bianca: Just bring it all in.

Man: Well, then sign here, and I'll start hauling.

Bianca: Thank you.

Man: Thanks.

Bianca: Did you hear that, Miranda? That nice man is going to bring in all the things we need to build a new home.

Reggie: Are you crazy? You took her to the place where her baby died? What's wrong with you?

Greenlee: I can handle it, Kendall. If what I did made Bianca take that baby, just say so.

Reggie: And somehow you thought that this would make things better?

Kendall: Ok, all right, listen, I'm not pointing fingers at anyone, ok? We have more important things to do.

Greenlee: What do the police say?

Kendall: Well, we haven't called the police in on this yet.

Greenlee: Good. Don't. It'll just freak her out.

Kendall: Yeah. Wait. Wait. Who are you calling?

Greenlee: Jackson.

Kendall: No! No! What the hell is wrong with you?

Anita: I didn't want you to hear it through the grapevine.

Maria: No, no, no, no, that's ok. You were upset.

Anita: Oh, God, Maria, it's hard to imagine what could be worse. This is just -- I mean, I thought I was doing the right thing for Bianca. She was so sweet to Bess. You know, I thought that maybe holding that baby could give Bianca a sense of peace. Obviously, that's all in my head.

Maria: Did Lois Teel -- did she file a formal complaint?

Anita: After I told everyone what happened.

Maria: Oh. What about Joe? Has he said anything yet?

Anita: Dr. Martin and the board will decide on appropriate discipline, and that's fine. I can take whatever they dish out. But what I can't take is being an embarrassment to you. So you might as well just lay it on me, tell me how disappointed you are. Just -- just lay it on me.

Kendall: Jack is still out of town. Isn't that right, Reggie?

Reggie: Yeah. He's with Lily.

Kendall: Yes, where he's needed.

Greenlee: Well, Bianca needs him, too.

Kendall: No, no. Calling Jack about this is not going to help us find Bianca. It'll only load him down with another tragedy.

Reggie: Well, Jack won't see it like that. If it's about Bianca, you know, he will want to know.

Greenlee: No, Reggie. Kendall's right. Jack will find out soon enough. In the meantime, we'll do it her way.

Reggie: Well, I'm not sitting around here when I can do something. Did anybody check the PVU?

Kendall: Lena and Maggie called some of Bianca's friends.

Reggie: Ok, well, then I'm going to check the dorm rooms and maybe the Student Union Center.

Kendall: Ok, good. That's great, Reggie. Thank you.

Greenlee: Kendall -- Kendall, wait, please. Please tell me what I can do. I want to help.

Krystal: Look, even if Paul was messed up about the babies, a mother knows her own baby.

Tad: Ordinarily, I would agree with you if Babe had been through a normal childbirth, but she wasn't. Ok, she was in a car accident. She helped Bianca give birth and then she went into labor herself. I mean, come on. And by that time, Bianca was already unconscious, so there's no way she could have told us what happened. And let's not forget that Babe nearly died from some infection that had her incoherent for the last few days.

Krystal: If that's not a Y-chromosome talking. You show me a mother who does not know her own baby.

Tad: Exactly. That's what I'm trying to say. What if every single instinct Bianca has is telling her that that baby is Miranda?

Krystal: Oh, my God. You hate Babe.

Tad: No --

Krystal: You hate my daughter so much --

Tad: It has nothing --

Krystal: You're coming up with a crazy idea to get rid of her!

Tad: I don't hate anybody, I am not trying to hurt her, and I'm not trying to hurt you.

Krystal: Then why can't you just let this go?

Tad: Because I -- I'm sorry, but for God's sake, if this -- if this is even remotely the truth, then a lot of people deserve to know about it.

Krystal: Oh, my God. I can't believe that you could be so cruel to hurt somebody that you care about?

Tad: Damn it, don't you think I've thought this through? Don't think you think I know what kind of fallout this is going to create if I'm right? I don't want to consider this any more than you.

Krystal: Well, then why don't you just drop it?

Tad: I can't!

Krystal: Drop it, it's easy enough to do! Just -- just watch me.

Tad: What if the situation were reversed, ok? What if somebody told Babe that her baby had died? Ok, what if I turn around and said, "No, no, no, there's been a mistake, there's a good chance that Bess is alive"? You think you'd turn around and walk away say, "Leave well enough alone"? No. No way. You would insist that Babe have the truth. I've seen you in action. If you thought there was the remotest chance that your grandchild were alive, you would move mountains to get to the truth.

Bianca: Oh, well, this is so great. Thank you so much --

Man: Oh -- Bob.

Bianca: Bob. Thank you. Miranda and I are both very grateful. She's home a little bit early, so we've just kind of been winging it up till now.

Bob: Is that her?

Bianca: Yes, it is. Do you want to meet her?

Bob: Aw.

Bianca: Miranda, this is Bob.

Bob: Oh, she's a beauty.

Bianca: Isn't she?

Bob: And she's so good.

Bianca: I know! I know.

Bob: Aw.

Bianca: She seems so content.

[Bob chuckles]

Bianca: Which makes me very happy --

Bob: Mm-hmm.

Bianca: Considering -- they just seem to know when they're safe, don't they?

Bob: Yeah.

Bianca: Do you have children?

Bob: We're expecting our third next month.

Bianca: Oh, wow!

Bob: Another girl.

Bianca: Oh. Are you disappointed?

Bob: No. I wouldn't have minded a boy just so I didn't feel so ganged-up on, but, you know, as long as she's healthy --

Bianca: Exactly.

Bob: Yeah.

Bianca: I have a friend who just had a baby, and she really wanted a boy, too, but I know that she couldn't be happier with her little girl. Could I get you something? You've worked so hard.

Bob: Oh, no. No, thanks. I got other deliveries to make. But are you sure you're going to be ok with all this stuff?

Bianca: Oh, sure. We're going to be fine. It will be fun!

[Bob chuckles]

Bianca: But thank you again, Bob, and, really, good luck to you and your wife.

Bob: Oh, thank you. Take care.

Bianca: Ok, I overbought. Oh, I've got a good idea. Your stroller. I can put it together and we can go for a walk in the park. How does that sound? It's such a beautiful day, and I can show you all of Mommy�s favorite places. We have a lake, and I bet at this time of year it's just full of baby ducks. And I can show you the boathouse, which is one of Mama's special places. Oh, we're going to have such a good time. How does that sound, sweetie? If I can just get this stroller put together.

Adam: From what I've seen of Bianca, it would take a very small push to put her right over the edge.

Ryan: She's been through hell.

Adam: Yeah, exactly. And the longer she's out there, the more danger to my grandchild. I won't have it! I want that child found and returned home now.

Ryan: We're working on it, Adam. I promise you, the baby is safe. Bianca would never, ever hurt a child. She just doesn't have it in her.

Adam: Does she have it in her to kill a man?

Ryan: That was self-defense, Adam, and please, don't make me start a list of your offenses.

Adam: That girl has done things in the last few months that would surprise anyone, not the least of which is walking out of this hospital with a child that doesn't belong to her. We don't know what she's capable of.

Ryan: I told you, we'll find her.

Adam: No, and I'm not going -- I'm not going to do nothing on your say-so. No, I'm not going to do that. I feel sorry for her, yes. But she has my son's child, and that trumps being nice to Bianca any day.

Ryan: It's not your call to make, Adam.

Adam: What if she's arrested and it is proven that she's really playing without a full complement of marbles, so to speak? I think then Oak Haven would be a good choice. I would personally see to it that she got all the help she needs there.

J.R.: Like you did with my mother when you sent her there?

Adam: J.R., that was a completely different set of circumstances.

J.R.: You're right. That was about your child. This is about mine. And there's not a damn thing you can say about it.

Adam: The hell there isn't.

Kendall: There's nothing we can really do right now except just keep your ears and eyes open, and if you hear anything or think of anything, just call me. Understand?

Greenlee: Right.

Kendall: Good.

Greenlee: Wait, the boathouse!

Kendall: Wait, what?

Greenlee: Yeah, Bianca used to go there to talk to Leo when things were bugging her, and I know she still goes there, a lot.

Kendall: Well, how do you know?

Greenlee: I ran into her a while back. I wasn't sure what was going on with her. I didn't know she was pregnant at the time, but I know she had an appointment, a very important appointment. She was really nervous about it, and I think being at the boathouse calmed her down.

Kendall: When was this?

Greenlee: It was the fall -- September, I think. It was still warm. People were sailing on the lake.

Kendall: That was the day she decided to keep the baby.

Greenlee: I'll go there.

Kendall: No, no, I'll go.

Greenlee: Ok, I'll stay here and make some calls. I'll be useful somehow.

Adam: I'm not going to let you shut me out of this baby's life. I'm her grandfather, and I take care of my family.

J.R.: My -- my family. Babe is the mother, I am the father, and when I say no police, I mean no police.

Ryan: You ok here, J.R.? Because I've got places I could be looking right now.

J.R.: Yeah, yeah, I got this thing covered. Please, whatever you can do.

Adam: Ok, J.R., this is insanity. For God's sakes, bring in the police. If you have to, tell them to go easy with Bianca. Tell them she's got a screw loose.

J.R.: Bianca will take good care of the baby. Bess is not in danger. Babe and I are both convinced of that.

Adam: Are you willing to risk your child's life to prove you're right? What if Bianca's so far gone that she doesn't even know she's got Bess? What if she thinks Bess is her child? What if you never see her again?

Krystal: Babe's child survived. Bianca's didn't. Now, my heart goes out to her, but those are the facts.

Tad: And you're not even going to consider the possibility that you're wrong?

Krystal: No, no. You know what? And if you had an ounce of decency in you, you'd be out there looking for Bess like you promised instead of wasting your time coming up with these disgusting theories.

Tad: Krystal, your fear does not allow you to turn your back on somebody else's pain.

Krystal: Shut up, shut up, and get out of my way. I don't even know you anymore.

Babe: My baby -- dead.

Tad: What is it? What's wrong?

Kendall: Bianca? Please tell me that you're here. Where are you?


Kendall: Bianca? I don't believe this.

Ryan: Great minds, huh?

Kendall: Yeah, except that we're both wrong.

Ryan: We're going to find her.

Kendall: Yeah, you keep saying that over and over. I'm not sure who you're trying to convince.

Ryan: I just want you to believe that it's possible.

Kendall: I don't get it. I tried so hard to be what she needed me to be. I thought she knew I was on her side. I mean, somewhere along the line, I must have let her down.

Ryan: What? Wait. What brought this on?

Kendall: When Bianca left that hospital, I should have been the one that she came to, Ryan. Now she's out there all alone with Bess. I mean, she must be -- she must be horrified, and I should be there to help her.

Ryan: Kendall, try as you might, you can't fix everything that goes wrong in Bianca's life.

Kendall: Yeah, but she's so alone.

Ryan: She's not disappointed in you. And you did not let her down.

Kendall: Well, I guess there's no reason to stick around here.

Ryan: Ok. I'll let you know if I hear anything, ok?

Kendall: Ryan? I -- I can't do this alone. I need you.

Greenlee: Ok, just let me know if you hear anything. That'd be great, ok? Thanks.

[Knock on door]

Greenlee: Coming.

Danielle: I'd like to talk to Reggie.

Greenlee: Good for you. He's not here.

Danielle: Please, wait a minute. I really need to talk to him.

Greenlee: Talk? Or lie? You have some nerve showing your face here again.

Danielle: I made a mistake.

Greenlee: You messed with my brother.

Danielle: It wasn't all a lie. My mother really is on my case 24/7, and I never lied about my father. I just happened to leave out the part about him being Pine Valley's Chief of Police.

Greenlee: Derek Frye is your father?

Danielle: See? Why is that so important for everyone to know?

Greenlee: Why is it so important to keep it a secret?

Danielle: You don't know what it's like to have cops as parents. When they're not keeping me under house arrest, my Aunt Livia is watching me like a prison warden.

Greenlee: You don't look like anyone's prisoner to me.

Danielle: She had a client meeting she couldn't get out of, and my dad's out of town for the next three days, so I snuck away long enough to come and explain to Reggie --

Greenlee: Let me explain something to you, Miss Thing. Reggie is worried about real people with real problems. So am I. So you can just go back on home.

Danielle: Oh, no, not his cousin. The one that lost her baby? What happened?

Greenlee: I don't have time for you.

Danielle: Please. He's been so stressed about it. Just tell me she's ok.

Greenlee: I don't know. Right now we don't know anything.

Bianca: This is a lesson that I should have learned from my mother. She always says that if there's any job worth doing, it's worth hiring a professional to do it for you.

[Miranda coos]

Bianca: Of course, if I had done that with my rocking chair, then I wouldn't have had that wonderful day with her. You were still swimming around in my belly, but I know you heard us laughing, because you were dancing up a storm, like you wanted to join in on the fun. But don't worry, we're going to have lots more fun days like that, I promise. I mean, just look at today. Could it have been more perfect? This was our first whole day together. Oh, my God -- your baby book! I'm supposed to be writing everything down about your first day at home, and I don't even have it with me. All about what you wore and what you ate and the people you met, like Bob, who thought you were gorgeous, and the guy who delivered your diapers. Gosh, who knows who else we're going to meet today? I've got a good idea. As writing happens to be one thing that I'm pretty good at, so I'm going to take lots of notes and then I'll transfer them into your baby book. Actually, I've got a better idea. We can document your first day home with pictures. How does that sound? Are you ready, sweetheart?

[Camera beeps]

Bianca: Oh, gorgeous.

Adam: J.R., I want you to think very hard about this. With everything that Bianca's been through, she might actually believe that Bess is her baby. Are you prepared to deal with that?

J.R.: Listen, I know that you're concerned. I know that you want to help. I'm going to handle this my way, and if and when I need your help, I'll let you know.

Adam: I see. Very well, then.

J.R.: There is one thing you can do for me.

Adam: You want me to bring in my security team?

J.R.: No. I want you to go talk to Babe and let her know that she shouldn't worry about the police and that we're confident that we'll be finding Bianca and Bess. Dad, you said all I had to do was ask.

Adam: So you want me to lie to your wife?

J.R.: Yeah. It shouldn't that big of a stretch for you. I'm going to go check with everyone, see what they know.

Babe: Come in.

Adam: Just me. Sorry.

Babe: I just thought that maybe --

Adam: No, no, no, not yet. I just came in to tell you that there's nothing to worry about.

Babe: They found Bianca and Bess?

Adam: Well, no, no, not yet, not yet, but everyone out there seems to think that it's just a matter of time.

Babe: How much time?

Adam: Well, that's the million-dollar question, isn't it? I've agreed not to call the police. And in case you -- have you changed your mind?

Babe: Oh, no, no. Thank you, Adam. This is the way that we want it. I mean, you can't blame Bianca. She just misses Miranda, you know? Just misses her little girl. Guess I know how she feels.

Tad: Krystal, what is it? Talk to me. What's wrong?

Krystal: Nothing. Nothing. I -- I have nothing to say to you, Tad, ever again.

Tad: Any news?

J.R.: Not yet. You? If I lose my little girl, I just don't know how I'd be able to survive it.

Anita: Aren't you even going to make me feel a little bit bad?

Maria: Why? It's not like you intentionally jeopardized this baby.

Anita: No, I screwed up bigtime. You should be all over my case.

Maria: God, what kind of sister do you think I am?

Anita: You're the kind of sister that's damn near perfect. I mean, you'd never make the mistake that I made.

Maria: I don't know why people think that, because I screw up all the time, and so do half the other people at this hospital. But you know the difference between you and those other people at the hospital, is that you didn't make this mistake out of arrogance or greed or ignorance. You just made a judgment call, ok, and that -- you know, you made that judgment call from your heart.

Anita: Yeah, I know, but I just -- I seem to trip all over my feelings lately. You know, maybe my judgment should be questioned.

Maria: Well, I really don't think anybody's going to be able to think straight until Bianca and the baby get back here safe. And you know what? Until then, no matter what happens, I'm here with you.

Anita: Oh, God. See? The perfect sister.

Adam: Joe, I want a name! I want to know who's responsible for letting Bianca Montgomery into that nursery!

Joe: Adam, the hospital has it under control.

Adam: No, no, no, this hospital doesn't have anything under control. Do you or do you not know who is responsible?

Joe: Yes, I do know who is responsible. It's an internal matter.

Adam: No, as a member of the board of this hospital, I demand that you tell me who it was.

Joe: I tell you what, Adam -- your family needs you. You take care of your family, and I will take care of this hospital.

Adam: No, that's not good enough. If you insist on stonewalling me on this, then fine. I will find out for myself. You know I will.

Anita: That won't be necessary. It was me.

Adam: You let Bianca walk out of here with my grandchild?

Anita: Yes, sir. I'm responsible.

Adam: You're also fired!

Bianca: Gorgeous. Picture perfect. Now, I promise this is not going to turn into a full-blown photo shoot like it always did with my mom. The word "snapshot" doesn't really enter into Erica Kane�s vocabulary. I just want a couple pictures to remember this very, very special day. So can you smile for Mama? Oh, boy. You are definitely related to Erica Kane. Ok, hold that look.

Kendall: I know that we absolutely have to find Bianca and Bess, I know that, but I just -- I dread it so much. I mean, if Bianca actually believes that that baby is Miranda, can you imagine how happy she is right now?

Ryan: So for a few hours, Bianca forgets about all the horrible things that have happened to her.

Kendall: How do I break it to her, Ryan? I mean, how do I tell her all over again that she has to say goodbye to her baby again? I can't. I can't do it. I can't face it. How selfish is that?

Ryan: It's not selfish if you're trying to help your sister.

Kendall: Well, that's why I need you. If you're not there to stop me, I could end up giving Bianca the worst help ever.

Ryan: Well, I will be there. What help is that?

Kendall: How about a pile of cash, a private jet, and some instructions to take the baby and run? Just go live the life she deserves and to hell with everyone else.

Babe: J.R., is that you?

Krystal: I knew J.R. was here before. I just didn't want to interrupt.

Babe: You heard? You heard about my little girl? What, Mama? Oh, did they find Bess? Oh, God. Mama, is my little girl ok? Mama, you're scaring me. If you know something --

Krystal: No. No, baby. No, all I know is we're going to find that little girl of yours and we are going to put her back in her mama's arms where she belongs.

J.R.: I didn't think that it was possible. That tiny baby has been on this earth for days, hours, you know. Already, I can't think of a time where she hasn't been the center of my attention. The first time I held her, that was it. She had me.

Tad: How do you think I feel? I can close my eyes and remember the day that you fit in the palms of my hand. I can also remember the first time you reached up with your chubby little fingers and grabbed my index. I thought this kid has got a grip. Like willful -- he's going to get what he wants out of life. Little did I know that someday you'd be looking me eye to eye and calling me a fool.

J.R.: I didn't mean it.

Tad: Yes, you did. Yes, you did. That's ok, because I'd probably put up with almost anything from my boys. Sit down.

J.R.: You know, Mom told me once that children will put my life into perspective. I didn't have a clue.

Tad: Well, now you do. Now you know how much she loved you.

J.R.: I've been thinking about Mom a lot since Bess has -- since Bess was born.

Tad: Yeah. I'll bet you have.

J.R.: All this time, you know, since she's been gone, there's been this -- this hole inside me. But Bess has been seeming to fill that empty space. I look into those huge eyes, and it's like -- it's like it takes all that hurt away. It's like this is what I've been waiting for, this is what gives my life meaning. And without her, I --

Tad: Don't -- don't think the worst.

J.R.: It's not just me. It's Babe. It's Babe I'm worried about. I love Bianca like a sister. You know that. It's just I know she'll probably bring the baby back just -- but what if she doesn't? I just don't know how Babe would handle that. She's already been through so much, with delivering both of these babies and the crash and then being sick. She was so sick after. You know, when she was having the fever, she kept waking up crying, thinking that --

Tad: What?

J.R.: She'd think that it was our baby that was lost.

Tad: J.R., why would she think that? Did she say that it was your baby that was lost?

J.R.: Yeah, it was a nightmare. It was from the fever. She just couldn't seem to shake it.

Tad: Did she say anything else?

J.R.: Well, I just -- I just figured that subconsciously she knew that one of the babies didn't make it. And once she got better, she held Bess, everything was ok. But then Bianca took the baby. God, I mean, what if her nightmare comes true? What if, after all this -- what if Bess is gone?

Maria: You can't fire her.

Adam: The hell I can't.

Maria: You don't have any authority.

Adam: Oh. How about I have her arrested for criminal negligence?

Joe: Adam, I told you the hospital will deal with its employees.

Adam: My grandchild is missing because of this woman. She has to be punished.

Maria: Well, why don't you have her drawn and quartered while you're at it?

Anita: No, Maria. Mr. Chandler has every right to demand that I pay for what I did. You'll have my letter of resignation on your desk first thing in the morning.

Maria: That was good, Adam. That made everything so much better.

Bianca: All right, let's just hope that I am better at this timer thingy than I was at putting together your stroller. You ready, sweetheart? Here we go.

Greenlee: I wonder if Bianca would book into a hotel or something.

Danielle: Her mother's Erica Kane? Wow. If I had a mother like that, I'd never leave home.

Greenlee: Oh, my God.

Adam: It's about time you showed up. I reported a crime in progress 20 minutes ago.

Officer: What's the crime?

Adam: Kidnapping.

Kendall: Go ahead. Tell me what a horrible person I am.

Ryan: Oh. Yeah, well, that would be two of us, because if I didn't think there was going to be, like, hell to pay, I would love to let Bianca disappear into the sunset and have a wonderful life and raise that child as her own, but -- I mean, we both know that that's not going to do her any good.

Kendall: Yeah. It was a nice little fantasy for a minute.

Ryan: Yeah. So, what about you? You still want me to stick around or --

Kendall: If you would.

Ryan: But not to stop you from doing something stupid, because that would not happen. Kendall, I know you. You will do what's best for Bianca no matter what it cost you.

Kendall: I love you.

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

Adam: I'm not insane! I'm Adam Chandler!

Greenlee: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt this, whatever this is.

Erica: You come back! I haven't even begun to hate you!
