Kendall: "Anything is possible." You're so optimistic.

Ryan: Why would anyone anticipate the worst?

Kendall: "If you don't look at the train, it won't hit you"? If you expect the worst, then you're prepared when it happens.

Ryan: And if it doesn't, then you've wasted a lot of time.

Kendall: So then what's the fix? What do you do when things seem impossible?

Ryan: That depends on what's standing in your way.

Greenlee: Oh, thank God you're here. Would you do something? Stop this.

Jack: Maybe I could if somebody could tell me what the hell's going on.

Reggie: This man has lost his mind.

Derek: It's called corruption of a minor.

Jack: Corruption of who?

Derek: My daughter, Danielle.

Greenlee: Danielle corrupted him.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. This is Danielle? Oh, my gosh. Last time I saw you, you were wearing braces, I think.

Danielle: Last time I saw you, I thought you were a major cutie. Still are.

Livia: Danielle, you can give it a rest.

Reggie: Oh, Jack, don't fall for it. If you do, you'll end up in cuffs like me.

Jack: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What's with the handcuffs, Derek?

Derek: You can pick him up at the station.

Jack: He's not going anywhere, Derek.

Derek: He goes.

Livia: Let's just settle this like adults, ok?

Greenlee: Fix this now, miss bag of chips. My family's been through enough.

Derek: I got to tell you something. He came through �

J.R.: Now, you -- you want Bianca to be Bess' godmother?

Babe: And I want Bess' middle name to be Miranda. Bess Miranda Chandler. Isn't it just better than perfect?

J.R.: It's a beautiful name and a beautiful idea.

Babe: Bianca and I are a team now. We're going to love Bess together.

J.R.: No, just hold on a second, Babe. Bianca, I want to do whatever I can to help you.

Bianca: It's ok, J.R. Um -- I understand completely. Look, after what I did -- you didn't know where Bess was, if she was ok. If somebody took my little girl �

Tad: Pop, there's a chance -- albeit a small chance -- that Bianca's baby is the one that survived the crash.

Joe: Tad, you're not making sense.

Tad: Yeah, I am. Listen, just -- just hear me out, ok? There was only one person who was conscious the entire night of that helicopter crash, one person who saw those babies together, who was supposed to make sure that those incubators were secure, and that's Paul Cramer. Now, what if he screwed up?

Joe: What do you mean, "screwed up"?

Tad: I'm not -- I'm not saying he did it intentionally -- God knows there was a lot going on -- but what happens if he panicked? What if he made a mistake and switched the two babies?

Joe: Do you have any proof of this?

Tad: No. But you do, right there on your desk. You got everybody's blood type on file. Pop, we can get to the truth of this right now.

Orderly: Your chair, sir?

Adam: Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah. Put it right -- right there. Yeah, yeah. Yeah -- little more -- swing to the right, right -- good. That's good, that's great. Thank you.

Krystal: You moving in? You actually going to sleep here?

Adam: And eat here. And watch everyone that goes into that nursery. Go ahead, go ahead. Lay it on me. I'm overreacting, I'm overprotective, and I'm suffocating my granddaughter even before I get her home. Tell it like it is. Think whatever you want, but that baby is going to be protected.

Krystal: You got me all wrong, Adam. For once, we are on the same side. Nobody -- I mean nobody -- is taking that little girl away from our kids.

Adam: Krystal? Is there something I should be worried about?

Tad: Come on, Pop, it's easy. All you've got to do is open up the computer, right, check out the files, compare Bess' blood type against J.R. and Babe's, and then Bianca's and Michael Cambias. You got Cambias' blood type on that thing, right?

Joe: That does not mean I'm going to open up a private file on the basis of a pure speculation.

Tad: Are you kidding? Look, if there's the slightest chance that this baby belongs to Bianca, you've got to check it out.

Joe: Tad -- I've gone along with a lot of your schemes in the past, but this time -- this time you have lost it.

Tad: Yeah? The same way that Bianca lost it when she left this hospital with Bess in her arms because she was convinced she was her child? Maybe she was right. Maybe she hadn't lost it.

Joe: Yeah, well, Bianca herself admitted she was confused.

Tad: Yeah, but "confused" doesn't mean "wrong."

Joe: Well, how about Babe? I mean, if the babies really were switched, Babe would remember what her own baby looked like. She'd know there's a difference between her baby and Bianca's.

Tad: How could she? She was unconscious practically from the moment she gave birth. After everything Babe has been through -- first the helicopter crash, then the septicemia -- she's just begun to figure out which way is up again.

Joe: Yeah, well, she seems to know her own baby well enough.

Tad: Well, maybe she doesn't. Did you know she's having nightmares that she lost the baby, that the baby died? Maybe they aren't just nightmares, Pop. Maybe some awful, tragic mistake was made. You got to -- you got to help me solve this.

Joe: Tad, the fact that one mother is grieving and the mother is having nightmares, it really, really is not grounds for an investigation.

Tad: I know, I know. I realize it's not a lot to go on, ok? But I am begging you, I am desperate. Just open up the files, check out the blood types, and prove me wrong. Call me an idiot. We will never discuss this for the rest of our lives, case closed.

Joe: You know, we have a real ethical question here.

Tad: Yeah, you do. Because if there's the smallest chance that baby belongs to Bianca, don't you think she deserves to know it? Doesn't she deserve the right to raise her own child? Come on. We go in, we get the facts, and we forget this conversation ever happened. Agreed?

Joe: All right. Let's see what we got.

Bianca: It makes all the sense in the world that you wouldn't want a crazy woman around Bess right now.

J.R.: Well -- um -- let's back up a second. You're not crazy. It happened, it's over, and everything's cool.

Babe: Especially if you'll agree to be Bess' godmother.

Bianca: I just think I should work through this whole baby-snatching thing first.

Babe: We could work through it together, if you want. Honey, that's ok with you, isn't it?

J.R.: The only thing that I'm not ok with right now is that it's late, and we're exhausted. It's been a long day. I think we should sleep on it.

Babe: J.R., I'd really like to talk about this now.

Bianca: No, no, no, J.R.'s right. I'm going to head back to my room.

J.R.: Ok -- oh, ok. So hold on a second. I'll -- I'll get someone for you.

Bianca: Oh, no. J.R., I -- I know where it is.

J.R.: Excuse me, nurse? Miss Montgomery is ready to go back to her room. Could you escort her for me, please?

Nurse: Of course.

Bianca: Thank you, J.R. And you -- you're amazing.

Babe: We love you. Good night.

Bianca: Good night.

J.R.: Good night.

Babe: What was up with that? The nurse? You were totally afraid that Bianca was looking to make a detour to the nursery.

J.R.: No. All right, yes. Listen, I'm concerned about Bianca, but I'm even more concerned about you and our baby. But if anybody's crazy here, it's you -- for even suggesting that Bianca could be a part of Bess' life.

Kendall: Sometimes you know exactly what's blocking the view, you just don't know how to get past it.

Ryan: There's always a way -- over it, under it, right the hell through it, if that's what it takes.

Kendall: That's easy to say. It takes a lot more than happy thoughts to solve problems. The fear, the uncertainty, all those -- those damn what-ifs -- they trip me up every time. How do I -- how do I choose if the wrong choice can send me over the edge?

Ryan: Are you still dreaming about those cliffs?

Kendall: Yeah, only now I'm alone. And there's no music and I'm not dancing. Some nights I just fall and fall and fall. I -- I always wake up before I hit the ground, but -- but it's so real. And I know someday -- I know someday I'm just going to smack down.

Ryan: Now, didn't I give you pointers about how to banish those bad dreams?

Kendall: Then how do you stop the fear? How do you find something to hang on to that's stronger than the demons? Do you have a fix for that?

Ryan: What are you trying to say, Kendall? Tell me.

Kendall: Um -- it's Bianca. Bianca -- she's in this -- this nightmare that she can't wake up from.

Ryan: She'll find a way to, you know, make it to the other side. We all can.

Kendall: Yeah, but it's not like returning Bess solved any of our problems. I mean, she -- she still can't have what she wants no matter how bad she wants it. It's got to be tearing her up. Um -- I -- I should probably go. I should check on Bianca. I'm sure she needs company right now.

Ryan: Yeah, yeah. Will you -- will you give her my love?

Kendall: Are you leaving?

Ryan: I'll be back tomorrow.

Kendall: Ryan? I will never be able to thank you enough for what you did today for Bianca. I'll never be able to thank you enough. I guess -- I guess I'll owe you again.

Ryan: No, you don't owe me anything. All your debts are paid in full.

Tad: So what have you got?

Joe: Uh -- nothing. There's nothing conclusive either way. It doesn't prove a thing.

Tad: Yes, it does.

Joe: Look, Tad, you're beginning to scare me.

Tad: No, I'm sorry, Pop, but if there's nothing conclusive either way, it does prove one thing -- Bianca could still be the baby's mother.

Krystal: This little girl has survived more in the past two weeks than most people see in a lifetime.

Adam: If we're on the same side, maybe I should be worried. Hmm?

Krystal: Don't go looking for trouble, ok?

Adam: Hmm. Hey. Hey, don't -- don't be wrapping, you know, the blanket so tight around the baby. I want her to be able to move.

Nurse: Mrs. Chandler asked me to make sure that it was extra snug.

Adam: That's ridiculous.

Nurse: No, actually, your daughter-in-law is correct.

Krystal: A snug blanky makes a baby feel more secure, and that's exactly what Bess needs after all her adventures. Oh, come on, Adam, admit it -- my little girl is a good mother.

Adam: A knowledge of blanky-wrapping doesn't qualify her for mother of the year.

Krystal: What's it going to take for you to admit that you're wrong about Babe?

Adam: Why don't you do something constructive, like get a new tattoo?

Krystal: That's good. That's good. But you know what? You can make all the cracks you want, but deep down, you and me, we're the same. We're two parents who will do anything for our kids. If they need us, we're there for them. That's what parents do.

Derek: Your son held my daughter hostage!

Reggie: I helped her!

Derek: He hid her!

Reggie: She lied to me!

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Just take it easy. You hid Danielle here?

Reggie: Yeah. Greenlee's, too. She said she was scared of her parents.

Derek: My daughter's not afraid of me!

Reggie: Look, she cried abuse and neglect. What else was I supposed to do? I wasn't going to rat her out. I should've sent her butt to juvie and let them deal with her.

Derek: Instead, you nearly got her arrested for vandalizing a music store! If that owner still wants to press charges --

Livia: Derek, let it go.

Reggie: You got to believe that's not true! That crazy freak over there had some weird idea of what's fun!

Derek: Hey, hey, hey, don't you call my daughter a freak, boy!

Reggie: Well, you wanted to know the truth, son!

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, watch your mouth, Reggie.

Greenlee: You know what? Unless you tell your father the truth, I'm going to press charges. Breaking and entering, my penthouse. Grand theft, my wardrobe.

Danielle: You really think my dad would arrest me?

Greenlee: Oh, but it's ok for Reggie to be arrested?

Danielle: Did I say that? You are some kind of uptight.

Derek: He's still going down. I'm not going to let him pull my daughter down with him.

Danielle: Daddy, stop, please!

Derek: Honey, let me handle this.

Danielle: But, Daddy, I have a confession to make, please. You're going to have to lock me up with Reggie.

Reggie: There's no way I'm sharing a cell with this crazy girl. Jack, please tell me there's a law against cruel and unusual punishment?

Danielle: It's all right, Reggie. You don't have to protect me. I deserve this. It was all my idea, Daddy, to hide in the music store all night.

Derek: You said it was an accident.

Danielle: The truth, I tricked Reggie. He didn't know what happened until we were already locked in.

Livia: You said you were scared.

Danielle: I was, but the real deal, there were these nasty thugs outside, they pushed up on me earlier, and I was too afraid to go back outside.

Greenlee: So you're afraid to ask for help, but you managed to throw yourself a party?

Danielle: We were hungry! We ate a few power bars, had some sodas! I didn't expect anyone to get hurt, I swear. So I understand if you have to book me, Daddy. Cuff me.

Derek: I'm not going to arrest you.

Danielle: I knew I could trust you with the truth, Daddy. Mom would've been all over me. I guess that's why I was too afraid to come clean upfront.

Reggie: Home run.

Greenlee: Out of the ballpark.

Jack: Ok, well, now that Danielle has cleared all this up for us, what do you say you take the handcuffs off my son?

Derek: No, no, no, no, no! This is about what happened here.

Jack: Oh --

Derek: Your son brought my daughter here for one purpose!

Danielle: Nothing happened, Daddy! I told you -- I slept in Mr. Montgomery's bed the entire night all by myself. Sure, Reggie and I were here alone and listening to some great music, and it may have been totally romantic --

Reggie: Kill me now.

Danielle: But Reggie was a complete gentleman. He has this Tibetan monk thing going, complete control over all his urges.

Reggie: Not all of them.

Danielle: Daddy, you are the one rock in my life, the one person I can trust always to do the right thing. Please, let Reggie go.

Derek: Do I have your word that you will never come near Danielle ever again?

Livia: For crying out loud, Derek, let's just take the cuffs off and go home.

Reggie: And I swear, I never, ever want to see your daughter again, anytime, anywhere.

Derek: Come on, let's go home, Dani. Jack.

Jack: Derek.

Danielle: It was great to see you again, Mr. Montgomery. I'm sorry about all the trouble, but I'm sure we'll get past it.

Reggie: Not in this lifetime --

Jack: Yes, I'm sure we will.

Reggie: Or the next.

Jack: Ok. Now it's my turn.

J.R.: Look, Bianca has already proven that she's having a hard time separating Bess from her own child. And if we make Bess' middle name Miranda, that's only going to make things that much more confusing for her. It's not going to make it better. It's only going to make it worse.

Babe: You don't even want Bianca anywhere near Bess, do you?

J.R.: It's not healthy. How could you even encourage her to bond --

[Babe sighs]

J.R.: With a child that she thought was hers?

Babe: Bianca -- she just needs time.

J.R.: I'm sorry, Babe. There is no amount of time in the world that's going to make me feel comfortable having Bianca near Bess.

Babe: J.R., I'm not going to just hand her the baby and toss her the car keys. But if Bianca wants to love Bess and spoil her rotten, I don't see anything wrong with it, and besides, it's going to be better for Bess in the long run. What's one more person loving her? There is no reason to be stingy with something like that.

[J.R. sighs]

J.R.: Baby, your heart is so wide open. You're only setting yourself up for all kinds of hurt. I'm not going to let that happen.

Babe: J.R., the same heart that led me to you -- it's telling me that this is what Bianca needs. Sharing our baby with her -- it just feels right.

J.R.: Why? Why does it feel so right?

Tad: I was hoping that the blood results would rule out Bianca as a potential parent, but obviously that's not the case, so we're right back to where we started.

Joe: With these blood types, of Pine Valley could be Bess' parents.

Tad: So there's only one way to be sure -- run a DNA panel.

Joe: Absolutely not.

Tad: Dad, you don't have a choice!

Joe: Absolutely -- listen to me, listen to me. Babe and J.R. and Bianca had their lives torn up. What they need now is some time to heal. They don't need us digging up more trouble for them.

Tad: I agree. The last thing I want to do is dump more grief in somebody's lap. That's why we have to do this on the QT.

Joe: Forget it. Forget it!

Tad: Dad, don't we owe it to the people involved -- to J.R., to Babe, and mostly to Bianca -- to make sure that the child is being raised in the right home? If she's not, could you live with that?

Joe: Well, if you can't live with it, Tad, maybe you'd better go to them with your suspicions.

Tad: No. Come on, be serious. That's not an option. I mean, what are we going to do? Run the tests so that -- that Babe and J.R. can live every day from here until the results come back thinking that this is their last with the child? Or give Bianca a sense of false hope so she can go out and buy all that stupid baby furniture one more time? No. The only way we can protect the people we care about is not telling that we're doing a test.

Joe: Look, running a DNA test on the sly -- it's an ethical nightmare, and I mean -- not to mention a legal nightmare.

Tad: Dad, we're talking about our family.

Joe: Yeah, well, you know, just recently I almost fired someone for following her heart rather than the rules.

Tad: Yeah, but you didn't. You didn't fire Anita because you know that sometimes in life you don't have a choice.

Joe: Yeah. We're on very difficult grounds here.

Tad: Pop, I know what a problem this is, but I cannot forget the look on Bianca's face when she gave that baby back to Babe, and neither can you. That's why you looked at those test results because you know it's possible.

Joe: Doesn't make the decision any easier.

Tad: No, it doesn't, but you got to make it. Because the more time that goes by is more damage we do to the people we love.

[Knock on door]

Krystal: Hey. I thought I heard voices. What are you boys up to this time of night? Anything going on I should know about?

Krystal: Private conversation?

Tad: Family only. But I guess that means you.

Krystal: What are we talking about?

Tad: Bess. Dad can't get over the fact that J.R.'s a father. Isn't that right?

Joe: Oh, yeah. She's a beauty.

Krystal: Yeah, yeah. Just like her mama. I tell you, every time I see her holding that little baby, it just takes my breath away. Have you ever seen a mama more in love with her baby?

Joe: Hmm. My goodness. Look at that. You'll have to excuse me.

Tad: Places to go?

Joe: Some late rounds.

Tad: Life of a chief of staff.

Krystal: Level. What did I walk in on, Tad?

Tad: I told you. Two grown men turned into mush over a new addition to the family, that's all.

Krystal: Hmm. Yeah, I feel like mush, too. Every time I see Bess makes me realize how Babe's finally gotten what she's always wanted -- her own family to love. I tell you, it just melts my mascara every time.

Tad: Tissue?

Krystal: No. Know what else does that?

Tad: Hmm?

Krystal: Secrets. Certain shift in the eye.

Tad: Krystal, you've got a really suspicious mind.

Krystal: You've got a suspicious mind, Tad. You are just full to busting with your crazy mixed-up baby theories. So tell me, did you tell your daddy about your silly ideas, even though you promised me you wouldn't?

Tad: Krystal, I never promised you anything.

Krystal: Tad, my daughter's happiness is all that matters to me. Now, she's had to do without her whole life and she never complained. So for you to start meddling and try to erase Bess from her life --

Tad: Can I share a little secret with you?

Krystal: You're just full of them, aren't you?

Tad: You got to promise not to tell anyone.

Krystal: I'm game.

Kendall: Hi. So how was it with Babe?

Bianca: I've never met anyone like her before. I mean, she had every -- every right to shred me and curse me and have me arrested.

Kendall: What happened?

Bianca: She asked me to be Bess' godmother.

Kendall: Godmother? Well, what did you say? I mean, how do you feel about that?

Bianca: I don't know how I feel about anything anymore. I mean, I know -- I know what happened, but none of this makes any sense. I need help, Kendall. Professional help.

Kendall: Yes, and we'll get you help. We will. We'll find you the very best doctors. We'll take our time. We'll do this right.

Bianca: No, I can't take my time. I need to do this now.

Kendall: Why?

Bianca: Because I know all the facts. I know that Miranda died, and Bess belongs to Babe, and J.R. is her father, and now she's back where she belongs, but I still feel it, Kendall. I still think that she's Miranda. And that has to be wrong.

[J.R. sighs]

Babe: J.R., it just -- it just feels right to have Bianca a part of Bess' life. I mean, how could it be otherwise? Bianca has been there since Bess' very first breath. Just the same way that I was with Miranda�s.

J.R.: I know -- I know you have been through a lot with Bianca.

Babe: You don't know. We shared our pregnancies together, we gave birth together. What happened that night, J.R. -- it could have just as easily been our baby that was lost. So in a way, I kind of feel like I lost a baby, too.

Nurse: Excuse me. Mrs. Chandler? We need to get some blood.

Jack: I leave town for a couple of days, and what do I find when I get back? You and you sticking up for each other? Now, what is up with that, huh? I am so proud, I can't tell you. But you -- of all the runaways you had to help, it had to be Derek's daughter?

Reggie: She tricked me. The little pip-squeak turned on the waterworks. She said her mother abused her, her father neglected her. I just wanted to step up to do the right thing, you know? Instead, I caused nothing but pain.

Jack: Yeah, well, it seems to me this family has more than its fair share of pain right now.

Reggie: Speaking of that, how is Bianca? Did you see her and the baby?

Greenlee: Are they all right?

Jack: Bianca took Bess back to the hospital. The baby's fine, but Bianca's going to -- she's going to need some time to heal.

Greenlee: Now, there's someone who's in trouble. And we get played by a brat who's just out for laughs and doesn't care who she hurts.

Jack: Which brings me to my next question. Greenlee, why in the world did you let this go on?

Greenlee: Well, I don't have much practice with the whole sibling thing. But whatever problems that Reggie and I had, they -- they vanished when I thought he needed my help. It felt good to have a brother. I -- I wanted to help him. But I'd go easy on the punishment because he meant well. But you might want to think about a birds and the bees lecture.

Jack: Ah, yeah.

Reggie: Oh, you're killing me, Greenlee.

Greenlee: You're only breathing because I kept your pants on. I got to go.

Jack: What was that for?

Greenlee: I'm glad you're back.

Jack: Well, thank you.

Reggie: You're not really going to give me no birds and bees lecture, right?

Jack: Have a seat, big guy.

Reggie: But I need my sleep!

Jack: No, what you need is an explanation about what happens when the bird in question happens to be the local police chief's daughter.

Reggie: No explanation necessary, ok? The bird went away. I let her free. She's gone.

Jack: All right, look -- look -- Reggie, Danielle's a little doll, there's no doubt about that. I can see how you could get tangled up with that.

Reggie: But I'm free now. And I plan on staying that way. Trust me, I don't want anything to ever do with Danielle ever again.

Krystal: You like to play doctor when your daddy steps out of the room?

Tad: Aerospace medicine? Outer space medicine. I stashed this here when my brother was the chief of staff. I kept it here for emergencies. Would you care to partake in a shot, or are you too shocked to partake?

Krystal: Fill her up.

Tad: Good enough. To our kids. And may their love and fortitude be enough to get them through this.

Krystal: To our beautiful baby being exactly where she belongs.

[Tad and Krystal clink glasses]

Tad: May she grow up healthy and strong.

[Glasses clink]

Krystal: And happy. Thank you, Tad.

Tad: For what?

Krystal: For standing by me on this. Babe and J.R. have had to endure the "for worse." I think it's about time they got to enjoy the "for better," find out what happiness is.

Babe: J.R., we are so lucky. We have each other, and we have Bess. Please, let's just share this with Bianca.

J.R.: I'll tell you what. I promise to think about everything that you said tonight, if you let me pamper you till you fall asleep.

Babe: There's only one thing that I want. Our baby.

Bianca: I hoped that when I gave Bess back to Babe, this feeling that -- that she's my little girl would go away, but it hasn't.

Kendall: Well, it's perfectly understandable that you would still be attached to the baby.

Bianca: I got to fix this. I have to get it through my head and -- and through my heart that -- that Miranda is gone.

Kendall: It'll get better, Bianca. It'll get better with time.

Bianca: What if it gets worse? What if this feeling just gets stronger? It's not fair to Bess. And it's not fair to Babe and J.R., either.

Kendall: It's not fair to you.

Bianca: I just got to figure this out, that's all. And -- and I don't think I can do it alone.

Kendall: Well, then we're going to get you the very best doctors we can find, I promise.

Bianca: Thank you.

Ryan: Greenlee?

Greenlee: Ryan.

Ryan: Hey.

Greenlee: What are you doing here?

Ryan: Um -- just on my way home. I wanted to check up on Babe and J.R. What's up with this?

Greenlee: I brought this for Bianca. Is it too much?

Ryan: You hiding the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in there?

Greenlee: It's too much.

Ryan: It's not too much. It's perfect. It's exactly what Bianca needs -- a big supersized pick-me-up.

Greenlee: Well, Jackson said she's hanging in, and I just want to do everything I can to be part of this family.

Ryan: You think it can happen?

Greenlee: Who knows? Even Kendall's giving me a shot.

Bianca: Kendall, you said you had news about Mom. What is it? Where is she?

Kendall: I'll tell you tomorrow morning.

Bianca: No, I want to know now. If Mom is in any kind of trouble ---

Kendall: No, Bianca -- Bianca, come on.

Bianca: Ok. You're right. Tomorrow is fine. Well, it looks like I'm not the only night owl. Is that Ryan?

Kendall: No, I doubt it. Ryan said he was going home.

Ryan: You think she's going to mind if I eat all the grapes? No.

Bianca: Was I right? Is that Ryan?

Kendall: All right, you need to stop talking and get some sleep now.

Bianca: I guess Ryan's just been on my mind a lot lately. I mean, he -- he's been like my guardian angel.

Kendall: Uh-huh.

Bianca: And what he did for me tonight -- I was on another planet, but he was so kind and gentle. He made me feel really safe. Like everything was going to be ok.

Kendall: Yeah, Ryan has a knack of saying the right things at the right time.

Bianca: Did you ask him to help me?

Kendall: No, no, I didn't have to ask him.

Bianca: Wow. That's loyalty. And not just to me. Ryan came through again.

Kendall: That's Ryan. Always true to form.

Ryan: You and Kendall, huh? One big happy family? A lot of damage there, Greenlee. You think you guys can get past that and give it a real chance?

Greenlee: I want to try.

Ryan: I'm impressed.

Greenlee: Don't give me the peace prize just yet.

[Ryan chuckles]

Ryan: Progress is progress, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Our cross-country adventure was a bust, wasn't it?

Ryan: Ah -- one tank of gas and here we are.

Greenlee: No matter how messed up things have gotten, I get it now. I belong here. And for once in my life, I can be part of a family in a crazy quilt kind of way. I want to hang on to it.

Ryan: Wow. Maybe you traveled further than you thought.

Greenlee: I just have to make sure I don't make the same mistake twice.

Ryan: Hmm. Or a third time.

Greenlee: What?

Ryan: Nothing. I'm going to get going.

Greenlee: Yeah, yeah, I got to get this to a nurse.

Ryan: Here, let me -- oh, boy.

Greenlee: Thanks.

Kendall: You'll get through this, Bianca. You will.

Bianca: I have to. Bess isn't my baby. My baby is gone.

Babe: Your mommy missed you.

J.R.: Oh, you girls can't be playing all night. You're going to need your sleep sometime.

Adam: Thank God Bess is healthy.

Krystal: And safe.

Adam: Yeah, no thanks to this place. Gives me the creeps every time they take blood from that tiny body.

Krystal: Well, that -- that tiny body's got a big heart.

Adam: Oh, yeah, she's pure Chandler. Hmm.

Krystal: Huh.

Adam: Are you on your way home?

Krystal: And leave Babe and that little peanut? No way. Looks like you and me are going to be spending the night together.

Tad: How'd it go?

Joe: We drew blood from Babe, Bianca, and Bess. And no one suspected anything.

Tad: Now what?

Joe: I sent the samples to the lab, I put a rush on it. We should know by tomorrow morning. All we can do now is say a prayer.

Tad: Yeah, but what exactly do we pray for?

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

Opal: You're giving up on Erica? Say it isn't so.

Bobby: I'll make sure that no one will recognize Erica Kane superstar.

J.R.: It doesn't feel right, having Bess.

Krystal: You and your daddy are just nothing but a lowdown felon and you make me sick!
