J.R.: So, what's the big secret? You guys had your heads together. It certainly looked serious to me. What did he say to you?

Babe: It was nothing. I --

J.R.: Well, it had to be something. You're obviously upset.

Babe: He just -- he wanted to know how Bess was doing.

Jamie: I'm glad she's all right. Any luck finding the guy?

J.R.: They'll get him.

Babe: J.R., let's go. I just want to get Bess home.

Jamie: Yeah, so do I.

Derek: Ok, let's go.

Jamie: Where to?

Derek: You can wait in the interrogation room until you're processed.

Jamie: Great.

Derek: All right, let's go.

Danielle: Aunt Livia? It's Dani. You've got to help me. It's a matter of life and death, I swear. It's Daddy. He's completely lost it.

Krystal: What did Jamie do to get thrown in the clink?

Tad: I don't even want to think about it. Last time he got arrested --

Krystal: Whoa, last time?

Tad: Last time.

Krystal: Sweet baby boy's got a rap sheet?

Tad: He goes off on a tarry once in a while because he's too damned hotheaded.

Krystal: Sounds like somebody I know.

Tad: Yeah, well --

Krystal: I'm sure it's just a misunderstanding.

Tad: Listen, I'm sorry for running out on you like this.

Krystal: I'd be disappointed if you didn't.

Tad: Whatever. Thanks for understanding.

Krystal: Hey.

Tad: Whoa.

[Krystal grabs his coat sleeve, spins him back into her arms, and kisses him]

Tad: What the hell was that for?

Krystal: For good luck, and a rain check.

Tad: I need a cold shower.

Greenlee: Looks like we'll get an exclusive deal.

Ryan: Great.

Greenlee: Ooh, more enthusiasm. You're still worried about me doing a 9:00-to-5:00 with Kendall.

Ryan: Well, I'm just -- you know, I'm getting serious bad vibes. Where'd she just disappear to?

Greenlee: She's hiding, eavesdropping. Kendall, we know you're listening! She's thrown everything at us and we're still standing.

Ryan: Well, that doesn't mean that we should let our guard down, all right? My guess is she's going to use my brother as a smokescreen for her next move.

Greenlee: Well, from what I can tell, Jonathan can handle her. She'll need new ammo, and you'll be ready.

Ryan: But my gut says that she's got her sights set on you now and she's just waiting for the right time to pounce.

Bobby: You want me to seduce Greenlee?

Kendall: Well, it's not like I'm asking you to romance a stone.

Bobby: Oh, so you also want the romance and the sex.

Kendall: Call me matchmaker. I saw the two of you up here together, and light bulb.

Bobby: You spied on us.

Kendall: It's obvious you find her attractive. How hard could it be?

Bobby: Well, I find you attractive. How about I seduce you?

Tad: What are you doing here?

David: I want to see Krystal.

Tad: This is my house.

David: Her car's in the driveway.

Tad: I don't have time for this. You got a stalker.

David: Look, you weren't at home and I couldn't reach you on your cell phone. It's important.

Krystal: Listen, it's ok, Tad. I mean, you've got other issues to deal with.

Tad: Yeah. I'll check in with you later.

Krystal: So, what is so important that you had to hunt me down.

David: Babe.

Krystal: What about Babe?

David: What I said at the Chandlers', about wanting to be more than just a sperm donor? Well, I meant it. I want to be a real father.

Krystal: What, do you want a pat on the back or --

David: I want you to teach me how.

Jamie: I blew it. I told Babe J.R. gave her the drug.

Reggie: And that's a bad thing?

Jamie: What if she confronts him and throws it in his face?

Reggie: Oh, you're scared J.R.'s going to go after her again.

Jamie: God, see, I don't even want to think it. But if he drugged her up, there's no telling what he could do. You know, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I missed something.

Reggie: No, no, no, Jamie, you're dead-on, all right?

Jamie: I got to get out of here. I got to -- I got to get to J.R. before he does something stupid.

Reggie: It's too late for that.

Jamie: I got to talk to him!

Reggie: What, you think he's going to give you a confession?

Jamie: No, I want him to tell me that I'm wrong. Maybe there's another explanation.

Reggie: And maybe Derek Frye’s going to give me a medal for keeping Phelps off the street.

Jamie: Just say I'm wrong.

Reggie: And say you're right! Are you ready to go there?

Jamie: I love my brother, no matter what he's done. I don't want to lose him.

Ryan: Nothing is off-limits for Kendall, all right? If she used my own brother against me, who knows what she'll pull out of her bag of tricks to bring you down.

Jonathan: Well, don't worry, if Kendall tries to get me to sleep with Greenlee, I'll fight it all the way. That was a joke. Tough crowd.

[Phone rings]

Ryan: Gail. Just a sec. Pickering's on the line about the international distribution deal.

Jonathan: So you want to work on some tax management.

Greenlee: Hit me.

Jonathan: Why don't you fill me in on the local tax situation?

Greenlee: How about we start with you?

Jonathan: Me? What? I paid my taxes.

Greenlee: All I know is that you're Ryan's brother, you have an MBA, you need to work on your humor, and you pay your taxes.

Jonathan: Yeah, that about sums me up -- no lame pun intended.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Jonathan: I was looking at last year's quarterlies compared to this year's projected payments, and --

Greenlee: No, it doesn't.

Jonathan: Excuse me?

Greenlee: It doesn't add up. A smart guy like you? How could you sleep with Kendall not knowing that it's Ryan's ex?

Kendall: Don't play me.

Bobby: It takes two.

Kendall: Try a different approach on Greenlee.

Bobby: Hmm. You complaining?

Kendall: I'm offering you a job.

Bobby: Hmm, more like a hit.

Kendall: Hey, whatever works for you.

Bobby: Ok, I get Greenlee into bed, wreck her marriage, you get Ryan back. What do I get?

Kendall: You get satisfaction of a job well done, and cash -- lots of it.

Bobby: How do you know I'm the right guy for the job?

Kendall: Hmm, I know it.

Bobby: Hmm. Because I did a job on my wife?

Kendall: Your wife left you. She dumped you. So what do you have to lose except the chance at easy money?

Bobby: You also said that you would help me get Anita back.

Kendall: Yeah, I'll help you get rich, and then you can use every dime on your little wifey trying to get her to fall in love with you all over again.

Bobby: I don't need the money. I'm doing all right on my own, thanks.

Kendall: Oh, come on. Bobby, come on, you're living medium. Living large would be so much better. I can make it happen.

Bobby: How are you so sure I'll say yes?

Kendall: I didn't pick you because of your green eyes and that cute little smile of yours. You are all about big risks for big bucks. You got Vegas in your soul. You get off on the rush. The money's just a perk.

Bobby: God, you got it all worked out.

Kendall: I know what I want. 20 grand.

Bobby: 50,000 -- cash.

Greenlee: You barely knew Kendall and you jumped in the sack with her.

Jonathan: I got a degree in business, not women. I get it now. Sleeping with Kendall was a mistake.

Greenlee: At least you're a fast learner.

Jonathan: I promise you that Fusion's new tax structure is far more interesting than I am.

Greenlee: I'm just trying to get to know my brother-in-law.

Jonathan: Ok. Here's the scoop on me. For the last seven years, I've been focused on one thing -- school. My hot dates were with textbooks. If I wasn't on the computer, I was at the library, and if I wasn't at the library, I was at some lecture hall.

Greenlee: A hottie like you all locked up with your books? I don't buy it. Tell me more. We're family.

Jonathan: I was driven. Any social life? It wasn't existent. Besides, you know, working to pay my way, there wasn't -- there wasn't a lot of time for personal grooming. And then there was also that humor glitch.

Greenlee: Well, you're starting to get funnier.

Jonathan: Yeah?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: Hold on. Yeah, I got the papers right here. All right, go ahead.

Jonathan: Ryan inspired me. My brother left home, threw himself into the world. He knew what he wanted and he went after it. The bigger the risk, the better it was for him.

Greenlee: What about you?

Jonathan: Total opposite. And when things heat up, Ryan reaches into the fire. Me? I go and look for an extinguisher.

Greenlee: You like to play it safe.

Jonathan: Um, all right, past tense. When I graduated, I realized it was going to go one way or the other, and I didn't want to be in back of an office somewhere, shriveled up.

Greenlee: You're not exactly shrivel material.

Jonathan: Amazing what a little free time plus an extreme makeover can do. So I packed up my diploma, I headed to New York, and ta-da. I got the works done.

Greenlee: I doubt they had a lot of work to do.

Jonathan: But remember, it was an internal makeover, too. I had to relearn that I could talk without raising my hand and that I could speak above a library whisper.

Greenlee: Hmm. And all the women were ready to hear.

Jonathan: It was lonely behind the library stacks. So when Kendall propositioned me, I couldn't say no.

Greenlee: You're not the first.

Kendall: Ok. All right, 50 big ones it is. But you don't get paid until you play.

Bobby: You really want to blow up this marriage bad.

Kendall: To the moon.

Bobby: Ok. How do you want to work this?

Kendall: Greenlee is a sucker for a compliment. Something about her eyes should get you in the door.

Bobby: Hmm, that's it?

Kendall: The details are up to you. Be creative. Just get her into your bed.

Bobby: Ok, what are we talking here -- Greenlee gone wild, caught-on-tape kind of thing?

Kendall: No, no, I want Ryan to see this with his own eyes. You call me, I'll make sure he gets a front-row seat.

Bobby: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Me in bed with the wifey, up close and personal? Sorry, I need some hazard pay for that.

Kendall: Oh, come on, you look like you can take care of yourself.

Bobby: You've done this before.

Kendall: It's foolproof.

Bobby: Well, as long as the fool gets paid.

Kendall: You know I'm good for it. You just concentrate on Greenlee. Do we have a deal?

Jack: And so the charges are what?

Derek: Possession with intent.

Jamie: To take down a dealer.

Tad: You have the right to remain silent. I would exercise it.

Reggie: That punk deserved it.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey.

Jamie: Dad, this is totally bogus, I swear.

Tad: You mean like the last time you were arrested?

Jamie: Exactly.

Tad: This is why I don't call your mother. Derek, would you excuse us for just a second?

Derek: Yeah, I'll be back.

Tad: Possession?

Jamie: Dad, they got it all wrong. This guy pushes to kids.

Tad: So, what, you think that entitles you and Reggie to play mod squad?

Jamie: No, Reggie and I had him cornered. He threw his stash at him.

Tad: Yeah, great, so the police arrest you up to your elbows in drugs. Well-played, James.

Jamie: We were going to dump it.

Reggie: But the cops jumped in on us too quick. We didn't have a chance.

Derek: So embarrassing.

Jack: Oh, come on. Danielle was part of this?

Reggie: I tried to keep her out of this, I swear.

Danielle: Oh, thank God you're here. Daddy just booked me, right down to the fingerprints and the mug shot.

Derek: What are you doing here?

Danielle: I called her.

Derek: What?

Danielle: I have a right to an attorney.

Livia: Derek, we need to talk.

Derek: Right after I process Reggie. Let's go.

Jack: All right, just hold on a second. Now, if you book him, he'll be in violation of his probation, Derek. He might go to prison.

Derek: Well, he should have thought of that before he got mixed up with a known dealer.

Jack: Reggie does not use. I believe his story.

Derek: Well, his story is lame, Jack, and you know it.

Tad: For the record, I'm with Derek on this one.

Jamie: You think I was buying?

Tad: No. I think there's a lot more to this story than you're letting on. So just out of curiosity, who are you protecting?

J.R.: You haven't said much. You ok?

Babe: Bess was almost kidnapped and Jamie's arrested. I'm about as far from ok as I can possibly be right now.

J.R.: I understand. Why don't you go swimming, take a nap. Get your mind off of it. What?

Babe: When you left me and Bess at the park, you said you had to do something at work, all urgent, but then you came back. Why?

J.R.: I told you. I went to the car. I saw that guy with Bess. Come on, what are all these looks for?

Babe: Do you blame me for what happened to Bess?

J.R.: Why would you say that?

Babe: Because if I wouldn't have helped that little boy and if I wouldn't have turned my back, none of this would've ever even happened.

J.R.: Yeah, but that doesn't mean that it's your fault.

Babe: But at the police station, you kept keeping Bess away from me, and when I asked if you hated me, you didn't even give me an answer.

J.R.: Babe, I don't hate you.

Babe: But you blame me for nearly losing Bess.

J.R.: Where is all this coming from?

Babe: David had said that the night that I stayed out, you felt like I was neglecting Bess.

J.R.: Hayward? That guy is such a jerk! First of all, he announces that he's your dad. Now he's pulling on your strings.

Babe: J.R., I can think for myself.

J.R.: Yeah, well, then you know that he has a major hate-on for me, and he wants you to hate me, too.

Babe: So you didn't talk trash about me?

J.R.: Of course not! I'm the one that told you to go to the party, remember?

Babe: Do you think I'm a good mama and a good wife? Do I make you happy?

J.R.: You are just totally stressed out.

Babe: J.R., please, I need to know this. Do you still want to be with me? Do you even still love me?

Krystal: I don't know why you're asking me how to be a father to Babe. You seemed to know what you were doing when you made your big announcement.

David: All right, but what next? Look, you said yourself that I was just trotting out my dog-and-pony shot.

Krystal: So which is it?

David: It's just that when I hugged Babe and I said all the right daddy lines, of course a part of me was faking it.

Krystal: What?

David: Oh, come on. I suspect Babe was, too.

Krystal: Oh, great, great. You're off to a great start, accusing your daughter of lying. She was touched. She -- she reached out to you.

David: Yeah, why? Why? Because she actually felt something for me? Or maybe it was because she thought it was in her best interest to do so because she knew that I was about to give Bess over to Bianca.

Krystal: So you think she's playing you?

David: Hey, she's a smart girl, you know, just like her mother.

Krystal: And she's got a big heart, unlike her father.

David: All right, look, you know, maybe this isn't getting off on the right foot here. The point is this, Krystal -- I don't know Babe. We don't know each other. And I want to know her. You know, I'd like to have a relationship with her. So I guess I'm just trying to find, you know, where do you start?

Krystal: Well, I think keeping your promise would be a good place.

David: No, I gave her my word, and I intend to live up to it, ok? I want her to know that she can trust me.

Krystal: You really mean that?

David: Yes, I do. What you and Babe have -- well, it's the real deal. And I would like that for myself.

Krystal: Well, it's going to take some work.

David: And I'm willing to work at it. That's why I want to start by getting the Chandlers out of the way.

Krystal: You have been a daddy no more than two seconds, and already you're getting territorial?

David: J.R. and Adam don't want me anywhere near Babe or Bess. They're going to throw everything they can in my way.

Krystal: Well, can you blame them? I mean, you have done some real damage.

David: That's why I need you.

Krystal: Why?

David: To run interference.

Krystal: Oh, listen, listen, the Chandler household is already complicated enough.

David: Yeah, but you've already figured them out. You've found a way to manage them.

Krystal: Yeah, it's like managing a pit of gators.

David: Krystal, you have to do this for me. I need you to keep J.R. and Adam out of my face, ok, so I can get to know Babe.

Krystal: I don't have to do anything.

David: Are you forgetting what I've done for you?

Krystal: You know, I -- I don't like your tone.

David: I'm keeping your secret!

Krystal: Oh, ok. So that's how it is? You're going to hold that over our heads? Is that your idea of fatherly love? Well, you know what? I'm out of here.

David: You owe me.

Krystal: Are you threatening me?

Ryan: So with the merger, the loss carried forward's going to save us tens of thousands of dollars and we're not going to pay any tax on the subsequent earnings.

Greenlee: You mean we'll be making tax-free money?

Jonathan: Sweet.

Kendall: Wait, wait, wait. Are you in or are you out?

Bobby: I like to live on the edge.

Kendall: Ok, but listen --

Bobby: Hey, guys.

Ryan: I thought you left.

Bobby: I tried. Kendall cornered me on the roof.

Greenlee: You've plowed through the Laverys, now you glom onto Bobby?

Bobby: Actually, she offered me a very interesting proposition.

Ryan: You might want to watch out. Kendall's propositions have trapdoors.

Bobby: Oh, this one's pretty straightforward. It's a job, purely freelance. Very big bucks.

Greenlee: What kind of job?

Bobby: As a matter of fact, it involves you.

Greenlee: Why am I not surprised? What's the big plan?

Bobby: Well, Kendall wants you and I to get into bed together on an ad campaign for Fusion.

Ryan: And what do you know about advertising?

Bobby: Well, I know Vegas, and she wants this to be a high-glam, high-glitz, high roller kind of thing. And she thinks that you and I would be the perfect match. What do you think?

Ryan: Wow, that's really exciting and everything, except no deal because Kendall doesn't have the authority to offer you a job without consulting us first.

Bobby: Actually, I wasn't interested anyway. I don't need the job.

[Phone rings]

Ryan: Yes, Lavery. I got to take this.

Bobby: Well, I guess the meeting's over. It's great seeing you. Congrats again, ok?

Greenlee: Thanks.

Bobby: Ok.

Kendall: Ahem.

Bobby: Next time you want to pimp someone to get your boy back, don't call me.

Jonathan: Now, is it me, or was there a lot more going on than that job offer there?

Greenlee: Welcome to Kendall's world. Rule number one -- never turn your back, never blink, and never trust a word that comes out of her mouth.

Jonathan: Oh, I know. I'm way ahead of you. I'm packing a cross, steak, and garlic.

Kendall: Ooh. No wonder you were third in your class. Come on, let me show you the file room, and how to get out of there if Simone corners you. Come on.

Ryan: Ok, I'll get that stuff out to you right away. Thank you. I'm busy here.

Kendall: You really know how to spoil a girl's fun.

Ryan: Not right now, Kendall.

Kendall: Ok, it's your loss, Ryan. It's your loss. But that campaign I came up with could have worked wonders for us.

Ryan: For Fusion.

Kendall: Yes, Fusion is all I'm interested in. Would you like to hear more?

Jonathan: Thank you for the file tour.

Greenlee: Well, Simone can bring you up to speed tomorrow, but don't let her lock the door.

Ryan: Meet me on the roof. So, what did you guys get?

Jonathan: Oh, as soon as I figure out your system, I'll know where we stand.

Ryan: Ok, sounds good.

Kendall: Ok, well, I'm not even here anymore. I think I've had enough proposals shot down for one day.

Ryan: Well, I'll see you tomorrow.

Derek: Ok, Reggie, let's go.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Just hold on. Can we please just have a minute?

Derek: One minute.

Jack: Fine.

Reggie: Man is cold.

Jack: Forget about him. Please explain to me why you would do such a thing.

Reggie: It is what it is, J, all right? I didn't do anything wrong.

Jack: So you and Jamie just decided to organize your own drug bust.

Reggie: No, this guy's been all over the place, all right? In the music store, in the park pushing to kids. He even tried to bug on me and Dani one time.

Jack: So why not let the police handle this?

Reggie: Jack, I did the right thing. Things just got a little sidetracked, that's all.

Jack: Look, is this some kind of a vendetta? I mean, is this some kind of payback for your mom?

Reggie: This had nothing to do with my mom, ok?

Jack: Your mom is an addict. Guys like Seth Phelps, they give her what she needs. Now, I could understand if you wanted to lash out. I would, too.

Reggie: Jack, look at me. I told you this had nothing to do with my mother, ok?

Jamie: I'm trying to help someone, all right?

Tad: Is it Babe? It doesn't take a rocket scientist, James. Drugs put her in the hospital, so you thought you'd go after the dealer.

Jamie: I wanted to find out who gave her the drug.

Tad: Did you?

Derek: Ok, Jackson, time's up. I got to process these two.

Livia: Well, process this, Chief. Nobody's going anywhere.

Derek: Can't you just hold Dani's hand until I get back?

Livia: Danielle's not my only client. I represent Reggie, as well.

Derek: What?

Livia: Jackson called me in since he's still on suspension.

Derek: Oh, this is too much.

Livia: Oh, I'm just getting warmed up. You press charges against my client, and I'll hit you with a lawsuit, brother or not.

Derek: You have no grounds!

Livia: Well, I'll start with malicious prosecution.

David: I just -- I want someone on my side with this, all right?

Krystal: Well, then just act like you have a heart.

David: You've already been convinced by Martin that I don't have one, remember? I stole his wife. I drugged a boatload of people. I'm evil incarnate!

Krystal: Well, you've done some God-awful things.

Tad: And who the hell are you, Sister Krystal? It takes a pretty cold-hearted person to do what you did to Bianca.

Krystal: You love Bianca, and you think I am so despicable. Then why keep the secret?

David: Because I want a daughter. I want someone in my life, all right? Someone who's my own flesh and blood. And I want that so badly that I'm willing to hurt someone I love deeply to get that.

Krystal: Why don't you just get a puppy instead of using Babe and Bess to fill that hole that's eating you alive!

David: I don't give a damn what you think, ok? You don't have a clue what this is like! I have nothing in my life, all right? Do you understand that? Nothing!

J.R.: You know how I feel about you.

Babe: J.R., something's been off with us for a while now. We hardly even talk.

J.R.: Yeah, but we're talking right now.

Babe: You know what I mean. Yeah, we talk about work and we talk about Bess, but never about us. We used to look into each other's eyes and make all these plans and be all silly and romantic, but now --

J.R.: We're married. We got different responsibilities. Things change.

Babe: Like making love? We hardly even do anymore. We don't even do anything. Did I do something? Is it me? Are you sick of me?

J.R.: Babe, you had a rough time after Bess was born. You just got out of the hospital again. We've been busy. We're tired. Hey, don't worry about it.

Babe: Something's different. You're different. What are you keeping from me?

J.R.: I tell you everything.

Babe: Don't shut me down, J.R., like at the police station.

J.R.: Babe, we almost lost Bess today. My brother got busted with a drug dealer. I'm sorry if I'm a little bit tense right now.

Babe: He was a drug dealer? Did you know him?

J.R.: What?

Babe: Well, I saw how the two of you were looking at each other. It was like you knew him or something. J.R., tell me. I'm not going to stop asking. What are you keeping from me?

Derek: I can't believe you'd file suit against me.

Livia: Reggie's my client. He has a case.

Derek: He was caught with a fistful of drugs!

Jack: Which he had no intention of using or selling, Derek. You know that.

Livia: This is not about drugs. It's about Dani. Ever since Reggie made her eyes light up, you've been out to get him.

Derek: Because he's a delinquent.

Livia: Because no matter what you do as a father, they keep seeing each other, so you wave your weight around as police chief to try to stop them.

Derek: I hope this isn't your argument in court because it won't stand up.

Livia: Well, forget about court and just step back for a second and you'd see that everything you're doing is wrong and it's hurting everybody, including you.

Derek: I have a job to do.

Livia: What about your job as a father?

Derek: I'm doing the best I can!

Livia: I know you love Dani, and I know you want what's best for her, but this is not the way. If you go through with this, you could end up losing your daughter.

Derek: It's for her own good.

Livia: Dani needs to trust you. Mimi has let her down in so many ways. She needs to know that she can feel safe with you. You need to listen. You need to understand and not slap handcuffs on every boyfriend you disapprove of. Dani needs to know you trust her.

Danielle: Yo, King Man. Reggie. You really went off on that dealer back there. You were awesome.

Tad: I'll tell you what -- you share with me what you have, ok? I'll look into it, and whatever happens, we'll do it together. All right?

Jamie: I can't. I got to do this alone.

Reggie: So, what's up with the chain gang?

Derek: No charges will be filed against you. Seth Phelps is another matter, but you're free to go.

Danielle: Thank you, Daddy.

Tad: No, you're coming home with me.

Jamie: I got somewhere to go!

Tad: It can wait.

Jamie: Dad, do not hold me back. I got to do this.

Tad: All right.

J.R.: You're right. You're right. I know the drug dealer. Seth and I went to high school together.

Babe: Oh, God, J.R., you're not --

J.R.: No, no. I gave up drugs a long time ago. But I think there's a connection between Seth and whatever you got slipped at SOS.

Babe: Why would somebody I don't even know want to drug me?

J.R.: Because of me. Come here. I ran into Seth earlier that day. I guess he thought I blew him off when I didn't respond to his subtle sales pitch. I think he's getting back at me by drugging you.

Babe: Did you see him at SOS?

J.R.: No, I think he used a buddy.

Babe: Do you have any idea who?

J.R.: He's got a lot of friends. Ask Jamie. He knows them.

Babe: He does?

J.R.: That's why I warned Jamie that Seth might be behind this.

Babe: Is that how he got arrested with that Seth guy?

J.R.: He said it was about you.

Babe: You think Jamie's buying drugs?

J.R.: I don't want to believe it, but Jamie's been acting kind of weird lately.

Babe: No way is Jamie using drugs.

J.R.: God, I hope not. You see why I didn't want to tell you? I didn't want to get you all worried. I'm sorry if you felt like I was shutting you down. I just want to protect you. I want to give you the life that you deserve. You believe that, don't you?

Babe: Yes.

J.R.: You're my life. I love you more every day.

Kendall: Come on, Ryan. Where are you?

Reggie: Thank you so much for saving my butt.

Jack: Yes, which I'm going to put into a chair so that I can explain to you the many other options to a vigilante drug bust.

Reggie: Can we talk about that on the way home, please?

Jack: Yes, we can. Consider us gone. Thank you, Livia, very much.

Livia: She'll be fine.

Jack: Of course she will. She has an absolutely great lawyer. Shall we?

Danielle: Lock me up, swallow the key, because I've heard it all before.

Derek: There's no lecture.

Danielle: You don't trust Reggie, you won't trust me.

Derek: All I want to do is --

Danielle: Keep me down, stomp all over my self-esteem --

Derek: Danielle -- I just want to apologize.

Danielle: You do?

Derek: Yeah. I've made a mess of things. I love you. And I want to be a good dad, but I'm just adjusting to the full-time gig. God, you've grown so much.

Danielle: Glad you noticed.

Derek: But you're still my little girl, and the only way I know how to be a father, the only way I know how to show my love is to protect you.

Danielle: Whether I need it or not?

Derek: Yeah, I've held on too tight. I've come down too hard. I get that. You know, I -- I don't tell you enough, but you have made my life so much better. Crazier, louder, but it's home now. It's real nice. Just be patient with me, Danielle, and I'll do my best to be the father you need.

Danielle: I love you, Daddy.

Derek: I love you, too.

Danielle: So does this mean you'll let me see Reggie now?

Derek: Dani --

Danielle: You want to give this a real shot, give Reggie one, too. You got your mind made up so well that you can't even see how great he really is. Come on, Daddy, try to see what I see, please?

Derek: All right, you can see him.

Danielle: Oh, thank you!

Derek: But on a limited basis.

Danielle: I can work with that. I got to tell him.

Derek: No, no, no, wait, wait, wait, wait. You are still grounded.

Danielle: What?

Derek: One week. I can make it two.

Danielle: All right, already. One week, starting now.

Krystal: Are you all right?

David: I don't know what the hell I was thinking. This is a waste of my time.

Krystal: David, I understand.

David: Just -- just drop it, ok? Enjoy your life with chuckles and the rest of the Martins and the Chandlers.

Krystal: David -- David, wait. David. You really want a chance with my -- with our daughter?

David: Yes. Yes, I do.

Krystal: No tricks? No games? All right. All right, I'll help you. I'll help you be a real daddy to Babe.

Jamie: Oh, thank God you're all right.

Babe: Jamie.

Jamie: I got to talk to J.R. about what he did now. Is he here?

Babe: You're a liar.

Kendall: Remember the last time we were up here together, just the two of us? We made love.

Ryan: I'm on to you, Kendall.

Kendall: You were on me that night. So, why did you want to see me alone?

Ryan: Whatever you think is going to happen is not going to happen.

Kendall: Ryan, it was your idea to come up here, to meet me up here. Don't tell me you don't remember what we did right there and right over there.

Ryan: Can it, Kendall, all right? You want blood, but you're not going to get it.

Kendall: Is that a threat?

Ryan: No, it's a warning. You want to stay in this town, work at Fusion? You made your choice and I made mine.

Kendall: Now, that's the Ryan I know. So decisive, so macho, and so wrong about me.

Ryan: If you do anything to hurt Greenlee or my brother, or anybody that I care about -- my 80-year-old mailman -- then you will be dust. You understand? In this company, in this town, and in my life.

Kendall: Well, you don't give a girl much room to maneuver.

Ryan: I mean it, Kendall. I mean it. If you try anything, I will find a way to get you out of my life for good. That's a promise.

Kendall: Give it your best shot, Ryan. Because I'm going to get what I want, and that's a promise.

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

Maggie: Why stay here? You have no commitments.

Babe: Jamie said you're the one who drugged me.

Kendall: You are going to take these keys, and you are going to use them if you know what's good for your brother.

Greenlee: Tonight, dear husband, you're in for fabulous.
