Maggie: Easy on the chocolate chip cookies!

Jamie: Shh!

Maggie: They're almost gone.

Reggie: What's with the blackout? Where's the lights?

Jamie: Don't. Leave them off.

Maggie: Oh. This isn't mood lighting, it's scary.

Danielle: You're covered in chocolate chips.

Maggie: Oh, thanks. You couldn't tell me before we got in the hospital?

Jamie: Shh!

Danielle: No fun in that.

Reggie: Yo, James -- yo, what's with the IV being disconnected?

Jamie: I don't -- I don't need it.

Maggie: Oh, that's great.

Jamie: Could you hand me that?

Danielle: What's going on?

Reggie: When you called me on the phone, I just figured you were bored out of your mind in the hospital.

Maggie: Yeah, we rushed right over.

Danielle: We smuggled in some chocolate chip cookies.

Jamie: Well, get ready to smuggle something out.

Danielle: Huh?

Maggie: Like what?

Jamie: Like me.

Woman: Looks like your lucky night, Mr. Chandler.

J.R.: You have no idea. Oh, yes.

Adam: May I ask what exactly are you smiling about?

J.R.: Oh, yeah -- Babe's not pregnant.

Adam: False alarm?

J.R.: Actually, a test of love and devotion. I passed, she flunked.

Adam: Hallelujah. I'm going to buy you another drink. You know what this means?

J.R.: No reprieve. That means that I can dump her -- the sooner the better.

Zach: I meant what I said. Anything you need, just ask me.

Babe: I have to prove that I'm an unfit mother.

Bianca: And we can't do it without you.

Zach: What are you asking me? You want me to corrupt your friend?

Edmund: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to startle you.

Maria: Well, uh, no. I just -- um -- you -- you caught me trespassing, really, because I've been snooping around, you know, looking for stuff on Zach Slater, and I kind of -- I came across this. It's -- I mean, who knew they had fantasy rooms here? It's kind of bizarre, don't you think?

Edmund: Depends. Is this a fantasy you shared with Zach Slater?

Maggie: Jamie, this is crazy.

Danielle: Very bad idea.

Jamie: You guys don't get it. Babe is going to get the truth out of J.R.

Maggie: And?

Jamie: She's ready to do whatever it takes to find out what he did.

Reggie: All right, it's about time Babe figured it out.

Jamie: You're not hearing me. Babe has not figured anything out. She's trying to.

Danielle: That girl is pretty, but slow.

Maggie: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: She knows I didn't give her the drugs.

Maggie: Oh, finally!

Jamie: But she's not convinced J.R. did it.

Danielle: What's slower than slow?

Maggie: Nonfunctioning. What is it going to take this girl to catch on, your life?

Jamie: No, Babe knows this is serious.

Maggie: Like I don't know it, Mr. Almost-cashed-in? I'm sorry, I'm not going to get all sensitive and mushy for this girl.

Jamie: None of this was her fault.

Danielle: Let Babe smack J.R. around a little bit.

Reggie: Yeah, maybe it'll knock some truth out.

Jamie: If J.R. catches on to her, what do you think he'll do? I need to get Babe away from him. He already nearly killed her with that drug. He could do anything.

Reggie: Yeah, being a Chandler, he can get away with almost anything.

Jamie: So you guys will help me, right?

Maggie: No. Babe made her double espresso. She can wake up and smell it all by her lonesome.

Adam: You're going to have to get a few more of your ducks in a row before you throw her out.

J.R.: Yeah, but we're going to have to act fast. Hayward checked Babe's juice. He told her that I put the birth control in there. That's why the whole baby scare thing happened.

Adam: Does she know you juiced her?

J.R.: Of course not. But if he gets any solid evidence on me --

Adam: Yeah, we're going to have to work fast.

J.R.: All I want is my daughter.

Adam: You'll get Bess, and Babe won't know what hit her.

Man: Good evening, sir. Can I help you?

Ethan: Yes, I'm here as a guest of Bianca Montgomery. It's Ethan Cambias.

Man: I'm sorry, you're not on the guest list.

Adam: An unfortunate oversight. He's with us.

Man: Excuse me, Mr. Chandler.

Adam: Yeah, come in, come in. Have a seat. Adam Chandler.

J.R.: J.R. Chandler.

Ethan: Bianca will be here in just a second to vouch for me, I'm sure, gentlemen.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, yeah. She'll show up.

Adam: I understand you created quite a sensation within the Cambias power structure.

Ethan: Well, I did have the element of surprise.

Adam: Long overdue, as far as I'm concerned. Cambias Industries is a family enterprise. It should be run as a family enterprise, by the family. And I have a feeling you're just the man for the job.

Zach: Ok. In my business, I've heard some weird requests, but this is a first.

Bianca: Well, you understand why we had to come to you.

Zach: I understand it, but have you thought this through completely?

Babe: What else can we do?

Zach: Well, I could think of 100 things less extreme than what you're --

Bianca: Babe needs extreme.

Babe: You don't understand. My husband -- he's way too good at covering his real feelings.

Bianca: This is our best chance.

Babe: You know, I better go check in with J.R. before it gets too late.

Bianca: All right, that's a good idea, Babe. You still think you can pull this off?

Babe: What choice do I have?

Bianca: You know, you haven't said yes.

Zach: I'm not convinced I should.

Bianca: But Babe knows what she's doing.

Zach: It's not Babe I'm worried about.

Bianca: Now you sound like her. I'll be fine.

Zach: It's -- it's a lot to do for a friend.

Bianca: It's for Miranda, too.

Zach: For Miranda?

Bianca: Yes. Babe and I were in the middle of nowhere when I started to go into labor. Nobody could get to us, so Babe delivered my baby herself. It's thanks to her that I got to hold Miranda at all -- look in her eyes, kiss her. And then when I lost Miranda, Babe made me Bess' godmother.

Zach: Well, she's a generous person, but --

Babe: Yeah, she's like a sister. It's a long story. But Babe went against her husband and said that I was just as much Bess' mother as she was. I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for her. I couldn't protect my own baby, but there's nothing that I wouldn't do to protect Babe's.

Maria: So you did overhear us, then -- Zach and I talking outside of his office. And you know that Zach and I -- that we were together in Nevada.

Edmund: In a room just like this.

Maria: Yeah. Yeah. And -- I -- I don't even know what -- I'm so -- I'm sorry I didn't tell you. I didn't know how to even begin to tell you. I didn't know where to start.

Edmund: You had a lot going on, you know, when you first came back. I remember how you were. I understand. And then when Zach Slater came to town, you -- well, I had a lot going on, so not exactly the best time to tell me about your affair.

Maria: Well, I just -- I want you to know that there's -- I mean, I don't feel anything for him anymore. I don't, like -- I mean, that's the real reason that I didn't tell you, because that was over so long ago and so -- it just doesn't even make sense. There was no point.

Edmund: Maria, don't insult me, please. I saw Zach leave. Stop lying to me. Tell me the truth.

Maria: Ok. All right, let's just -- let's go someplace, then, and then we can talk --

Edmund: What's the matter with right here? Too many memories? Good. It'll help with the details.

Maria: Edmund, please, I --

Edmund: Listen, I knew that there was something going on with you and Slater as soon as -- as soon as he first saw you, I could see it. I just should have listened to myself, but, no, no, no. I just didn't know we had that much in common.

Maria: Edmund, I was a totally different person when I was with Zach.

Edmund: Yeah, well, Zach still wants whoever you are.

Maria: It doesn't matter because I'm not going to be with him. I've already told him no.

Edmund: Oh, and that's going to stop him? Or make him want you more?

Maria: Honey --

Edmund: Did you mean it?

Maria: Nothing has happened with me and Zach since he's come to town, and nothing's going to happen.

Edmund: Because you don't want it to, or because you don't want to hurt me? Look, just tell me. I mean, look, even if nothing did happen this time -- look at me, honey. Tell me you don't still want -- tell me you don't still want Zach Slater to make love to you. Honey, look me in the eye. Look at me. Look at me! Tell me you still don't have feelings for him.

Maria: I can't. Because I do. I do.

Bianca: Look, it's impossible to understand this mess unless you know the Chandlers. J.R. started out all right, but every day he's more and more like Adam.

Zach: Adam Chandler?

Bianca: Yeah, J.R.'s father, Adam, is a real piece of work.

Zach: I've heard the name.

Bianca: Well, you must have heard of his empire. I'm not a fan.

Zach: He was involved in the Michael Cambias murder trial, wasn't he?

Bianca: Yeah, he was one of the suspects.

Zach: Yeah. And the prosecution thought that he was capable of killing Cambias.

Bianca: Well, he was one of a long list of people who hated Michael.

Zach: I know, and I didn't mean to upset you.

Bianca: No, you didn't.

Zach: The reason I'm asking is because -- do you think that Adam and his boy might go as far as --

Bianca: Oh, no! No, no, I don't think they would hurt Babe, but they're trying to take her child from her, and I can't let that happen.

Zach: I'm in.

Bianca: Really?

Zach: Yeah, for Miranda. Come here.

Babe: Don't be mad. I know that you're here to gamble and talk shop and that it's high stakes and everything, and I shouldn't bother you when you're playing for money, but --

J.R.: No, no, no. Dad and I -- we were just talking, that's all.

Babe: Well, did you win yet? I mean, not that it even matters, win or lose, as long as you're having fun. That's the point. I just want you to stay and have fun, even if you have to stay all night. That's what I came down here to tell you.

J.R.: Why?

Babe: Because you shouldn't worry. I am so beat. I am going to go lie down in our room, but I definitely want you to stay and have fun, and I promise I won't be mad.

J.R.: Um, Babe, what's going on with you?

Babe: Nothing. I just -- I love you, and I want to make sure you have fun.

J.R.: Have you been drinking?

Babe: Only two little drinks. Oh, what? I'm not pregnant. Having a couple drinks to take the edge off -- it's fine. Are you mad at me?

J.R.: No, um -- of course not. No, I'm not mad.

Babe: You know, I am so, so sorry about the whole -- the baby thing. And having another baby -- it would have been wonderful, but, oh, well! I just keep messing up. When I accused you, I should have known that David would have lied and said that you would've slipped those birth control pills in my drink. I am so, so sorry.

J.R.: All right, Babe, you know what, it's absolutely ok. You're forgiven, ok?

Babe: You really mean it? Really?

J.R.: Yes. I love you.

Babe: I have no idea how, but you mean it, don't you? You really love me?

J.R.: If you'd like me to take you upstairs right now, I will.

Babe: No! You know what? I definitely want you to stay down here and have fun. Stay with your game. I'm going to go. Bye.

J.R.: Good night.

Adam: I knew your grandfather. He was devoted to your father's memory.

Ethan: If I am who I say I am.

J.R.: Well, that shouldn't be too hard to prove.

Adam: Hmm. And when you have, I'm sure you'll be a better CEO for Cambias Industries than Ryan Lavery.

Zach: Ahem.

Ethan: Thank you for the vote of confidence, gentlemen. Now that we've got the flattery out of the way, why don't you tell me exactly what it is that you really want in return.

Maggie: You have to cut the cord.

Jamie: Babe is still in danger.

Maggie: You know, if this wasn't so tragic, I think I could actually find a blond joke amongst all this mess.

Jamie: Ok, ok, fine, I get it. She's not your favorite person. But Babe is about to go under for the third time. Someone has to care.

Maggie: Jamie, you are not up to lifesaving right now. She will take you under.

Reggie: All right, James, listen -- I like Babe, ok? But you can't save the girl, all right? You need help with your own buttons.

Maggie: Yeah, I don't even know how you got into your pants.

Danielle: Must have taken you half the day.

Reggie: You nearly died. You want to rip yourself back open again?

Jamie: It's not going to happen.

Reggie: This is not a time to play hero, all right? Somebody please tell him.

Danielle: It's the perfect time.

Reggie: What did you just say?

Maggie: Whose side are you on?

Danielle: Consider the romance factor.

Maggie: Oh, my God. Come on.

Danielle: What, you never wanted to have someone swoop in and rescue you?

Reggie: Look at him! There is no swooping!

Danielle: Picture this -- J.R. has locked Babe in some room off some secret tunnel. Nobody knows what he's doing to her. Nobody even sees, except for the rats and their beady little eyes.

Reggie: Ok, look, the Chandlers don't have rats. They're rich. They are the rats.

Danielle: But through the blinding agony of his own wound, Jamie feels Babe's pain, and he struggles to the mansion and he fights his way down --

Reggie: Ok, all right, in his condition, the maid could drop him like that.

Danielle: And he kicks down the door!

Reggie: Ok, what is wrong with you, woman?

Danielle: Well, you don't have a romantic soul.

Reggie: Because you watch too many movies, all right? What's so romantic about "the end" plastered all over the dead hero?

Danielle: Why are you so angry?

Reggie: Because I'm tired of listening to garbage.

Jamie: I'm not trying to be a hero.

Reggie: All right, Jamie, I understand you want to get back at J.R. I get that. If you had your stuff together, I would drop you off right in front of the Chandlers. But you don't. And you can't, man, so -- so I will.

Danielle: Whoa, excuse me?

Maggie: Wait, why should you be fighting Babe's battles?

Danielle: Yeah, who's high off movies now?

Jamie: Yeah, no way.

Reggie: All right, are you going to stop me?

Danielle: What's that, Daddy? You just picked up Reggie? Oh, well, can't you give him another chance? He'll hang you out to dry.

Reggie: Oh, so you're going to rat me out to your father?

Danielle: I won't have to. You step foot on the Chandlers' property and they'll dial 911 so fast --

Jamie: Derek cut you a break when you tackled J.R. He's not going to do it again.

Reggie: So? I'll live with that.

Jamie: I won't.

Danielle: Well, I'm not either.

Jamie: You're on probation. You can go to jail for a long, long time.

Reggie: All right, and if somebody punches you in your gut, then you're going to be in the ground, like, forever.

Maggie: Reggie, don't waste your breath. You'll find a way to do this with us or without us, won't you?

Jamie: What do you think?

Bianca: Mrs. Chandler needs it. Yes, immediately! It's very important! All right. Thank you.

Babe: Bianca, are you sure --

Bianca: Yes, I'm sure. I'm still cool with this.

Babe: Because just because you threw out the idea doesn't mean that we still can't bail.

Bianca: Is that what you want?

Babe: It's just that it could get really ugly, and J.R. -- he's got a really mean temper. I wouldn't blame you if you want to just run for the hills.

Bianca: Babe, I want you and Bess to be safe, whatever it takes. Look, I -- I know how much you love J.R.

Babe: I just want it back the way it used to be. I don't want to do it. I don't want to do any of it.

Adam: I was about to offer you my assistance, if needed.

Ethan: You must be the friendliest man in town.

Adam: Absolutely.

J.R.: My father doesn't normally offer help to just anyone. You know he knew your grandfather.

Ethan: Hmm, and my Uncle Michael. Knew him well enough to try and murder him, as I remember.

Adam: To know your Uncle Michael was to loathe him. He was nothing like your grandfather.

Ethan: So you did try to kill him.

Adam: No, I simply wanted to, like everyone else in this town.

Ethan: Were you part of the mob of people who disposed of his body in the city dump?

Adam: Well, since I don't know where the city dump is, I can't take credit for that either.

Ethan: I think you understand, gentlemen, why I can't accept your offer of help. And if you are thinking I'd return the favor and help you get your company back from Cambias Industries, well, I'm afraid you're mistaken. Thanks for the drink.

Edmund: Well, that's progress, you know. Honesty. I can't totally blame you, though, you know. But you didn't go through with it because of me.

Maria: I almost did go through with it because of you. I wasn't afraid you were going to leave. You already have.

Edmund: I'm right here.

Maria: No, you're not here, Edmund. You're not in this marriage anymore, really. We haven't slept in the same bed for weeks. We haven't -- you know, I wake up in the morning, and I roll over to your side, and I roll over there to cuddle with you, and you're not there, and I miss you.

Edmund: I miss you, too. So you found a substitute?

Maria: No, you know what? I sit across the table from you when you even bother to share a meal with me anymore, and you are totally somewhere else. I remember we used to stay up half the night just making love, and the other half we would laugh and just be together and talk and talk, and where is that part? Where'd it go?

Edmund: You know where it went.

Maria: No -- we used to make love just looking at each other, Edmund. Just holding each other. That's what I mean.

Edmund: I got shot, ok?

Maria: Yeah, you got -- no, we got shot. We got shot! That bullet took your legs. Yeah, it took your legs. It took our life.

Edmund: I can't make love to you the way I used to, you understand? I can't! Now, what do you need -- you need to hear this? You need to hear an apology? What do you want? You want an excuse to leave me?

Maria: No, I need my husband. I need my husband is what I need. I need you. I need his love and his affection and his attention. I want to sleep in the same bed again. I want to -- I want to feel appreciated and attractive. And you know, I might be shallow, and I'm sorry if it is, but you wanted honesty.

Edmund: You want honesty? I have held you, ok? And you know what? That is not enough for me. It is not enough, and it's not enough for you. Now, you want -- I can't make love to you anymore, so you turn to Slater.

Maria: No, you can make love to me, Edmund. You just won't make love to me is the problem. So, was I tempted by Zach? Yeah, I was. Yeah, I was, because he made me feel desirable.

Edmund: You think I don't want to?

Maria: How the hell would I know, Edmund? I mean, if you do, then please do something about it, for God's sake! I can't make you love me! This -- I mean, this is really -- it's up to you. What are we going to do?

Edmund: You have no idea what it's like.

Maria: You're right, I have absolutely no idea what it's like. I have no idea because you don't share anything with me anymore. I used to know what you were going to do, what you were going to say, sometimes before you even knew what you were going to do or say. God. Tell me something, anything. Tell me you hate that I even thought about sleeping with Zach, that you want to kill him or that you want to kill me. Just say anything so that I know it matters to you, that I matter to you, Edmund! Please, give me a reason to not walk out the door.

Edmund: Don't stay with me out of pity. I -- I don't want you to stay with me just because you feel --

Maria: Oh, my God, I could hit you! Do you know I could hit you right now? Is that what you think of me? Is that all you know about me?

Edmund: You have a strong sense of duty, Maria.

Maria: Oh, my God!

Edmund: Maybe too strong, you know?

Maria: You are so -- you've pulled so far away from me, Edmund, and you're so walled up in that stupid chair that you have no idea how I feel about anything anymore.

Maggie: Ok, just -- just answer me before you take off. Why? Why are you on this mission like you owe Babe something?

Reggie: All right, listen -- before you wreck yourself, why don't you call Babe, all right? Make sure she's ok.

Danielle: Yeah, maybe this can wait.

Reggie: Until you're up to it.

Jamie: No, I tried lots of times. I go straight to voicemail.

Maggie: Ok, so her provider sucks and she doesn't have service.

Danielle: Well, that doesn't sound good. Well, it doesn't.

Jamie: One of the reasons why I need to get out of here, fast. So, who's going to play lookout and who's going to walk me out?

Reggie: Walk? Past your grandfather's tight staff?

Jamie: Well, I can't fly, so --

Reggie: What would you do without me? Just sit tight, ok? Dani, come on.

Danielle: I know that must be an invitation, because I would never respond to an order.

Reggie: Ok, Dani. Can you please come with me?

Danielle: Where to?

Reggie: I think it's time for another round of punking, if you feel up to it.

Danielle: If I'm not the target and I don't have to dress up ugly.

Reggie: Right. Ok, come on.

Jamie: What if the whole town was trashing Bianca, saying she was scamming you, out to hurt you. Would you believe us?

Maggie: No, because it couldn't be true.

Jamie: Why not?

Maggie: Because Bianca is a wonderful person.

Jamie: Yeah, so far. But people change, and we all can do heinous things depending on what gets thrown at us.

Maggie: Bianca would never hurt me.

Jamie: Yeah, but nobody wants to believe that the people they really love would hurt them. You think that Babe is an idiot for not catching on to J.R., but I get it because I don't want to think that my brother is capable of stuff like this, because I love him. And what brought it home was feeling that blade in my gut. And even though J.R. wasn't holding the knife, in a way he was. Because what he was telling me and doing for months had all been an act.

Maggie: I'm sorry.

Jamie: No, it's the same for Babe. I mean, her life hasn't been a walk in the park.

Maggie: Well, whose has?

Jamie: Yeah, so when somebody comes along and you put all your love and your faith in them -- all right, fine. Babe worshiped J.R. She saw his potential, and we all thought that he pulled himself together while he was away.

Maggie: And you can't understand why he's so twisted.

Jamie: Can you? Then how could Babe? She could not buy what we were saying without getting concrete proof because nobody wants to think that the person they fell in love with wants them out of the way. And J.R. was her hero.

Maggie: Where are your shoes?

Jamie: Why?

Maggie: Because heroes can't scuff around in paper slippers.

Jamie: They're over there.

Maggie: Is Danielle right?

Jamie: About what?

Maggie: Is this a romance thing? Do you have feelings for Babe still?

Jamie: I feel something. Babe is doing this deep, silent scream, and it is busting my head wide open. It's not a choice. I have to do this.

Babe: This is it.

Bianca: Don't be afraid, Babe. I got your back.

Babe: You're the best friend that I've ever had. No matter how this turns out, just know that I love you, ok? And I promise I will do the right thing.

Bianca: Well, of course you will, because you couldn't possibly do anything else.

[Phone rings]

Bianca: That could be J.R.


Babe: Hello? David. Oh, I did? I guess I must have left it at the house. Did you get the test results? Thanks, David. I got to run.

Bianca: Babe?

Babe: It's been confirmed. That same hormone stuff that they found in my orange juice -- it's in my blood. J.R. has been slipping me birth control pills. I mean, who else would even do it? J.R. doesn't want another baby. He doesn't even love me.

Bianca: All right, listen -- do you think you can still go on with this? Because maybe I can stall J.R. for a little --

Babe: No, no, no. No stalling. If J.R. is trying to push me out of the way to take our little girl, we are going to find out right now.

J.R.: Well, as if it wasn't enough to find out that Babe's not pregnant, he tried to get our company back in the same night. You don't suppose that that's Alexander Cambias' grandson?

Adam: Well, as long as everyone else believes it, we can still use him.

J.R.: Well, he obviously hates you.

Adam: Son, I do business every day with people who hate me. I think part of this public display of disdain was his performance.

J.R.: Yeah, well, either way, it's --

Adam: Well, no matter who he is, if we help him prove that he's the rightful heir, he'll have to pay us back with our company.

J.R.: What if he doesn't?

Adam: Oh, he will. Or he'll be extremely sorry.

Zach: Excuse me. Don't keep your son from leaving. There's a celebrating waiting.

J.R.: Celebration?

Zach: Well, you've had a string of good luck.

J.R.: Oh, I'm just up a couple thousand.

Zach: No, I know you're up. And so does Babe. Now, if I had a beautiful wife in my room with our best bottle of champagne, I don't think I'd be down here talking.

J.R.: I'm sorry, you must be confused.

Zach: At $1,000 a pop, I know whenever someone orders one.

J.R.: Yeah, but she said she was going upstairs to go to bed.

Zach: Well, then let me check with my assistant. Maybe I'm mistaken. I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Adam: What's going on?

J.R.: You don't suppose I could be that lucky? You don't think that Babe's upstairs partying with some other man, do you?

Maria: Is that seriously what's going through your mind right now, Edmund? That is what your main concern is? Not that I might have slept with somebody else or that I might want to sleep with somebody else, but you're concerned that I might -- I'm martyring myself? I mean, seriously, you think that I'm only staying here in the marriage because I'm afraid of what people might say about me if I left you? Or I'm staying with you because I feel sorry for you or something? No, I don't. I don't feel sorry for you. I feel sorry for myself right now, is really --

Edmund: Listen, I know --

Maria: No, no, no. I feel sorry for this marriage, because it's been on life support for months. I don't feel sorry for you. I hate you because you have literally cut me out of a partnership that we used to have!

Edmund: I want --

Maria: No, what do you want, Edmund? Please just say it. Tell me you hate me, you want to divorce me. Whatever it is, just say it, please!

Edmund: I want to get out of this chair. And I want to walk over to you and I want to hold you, and I'll take you in my arms and never let you go. But I can't. I can't.

Maria: I can come to you. Edmund, this used to be a partnership. It was 50/50. Please come back to me.

Edmund: I love you. I never stopped loving you.

Maria: I never stopped loving you.

Woman: Mr. Slater?

Zach: Yes?

Woman: Mr. and Mrs. Grey have gone to their room together.

Zach: Thank you.

J.R.: She was set on me staying down here to "have fun."

Adam: To clear the field.

J.R.: All night, if I wanted to. You know, I should just go upstairs, make sure that Babe's all right.

Adam: Let's go play trump the tramp.

Zach: Maybe -- maybe you shouldn't leave after all.

J.R.: Well, actually, I -- I feel like celebrating.

Zach: Well, it's a charity. Just stay at the table for a little while longer, ok?

Adam: It's been a long night.

Zach: It's a winning streak.

J.R.: I can always come back.

Zach: Hi. You're Bianca's guest.

Ethan: Yeah, actually, I'm looking for her.

Zach: Well, she's not here. That's quite a show you put on earlier.

Ethan: You find out somebody stole and trashed your relative's corpse, see how you like it.

Zach: Hmm. So you're the heir to the Cambias throne.

Ethan: I'm the grandson of Alexander Cambias. So?

Zach: So, I care about Bianca. I want to make sure that she's ok.

Ethan: When I find her, I'll make sure I pass that on.

Zach: Sorry about your uncle. Must be difficult.

Ethan: You were at the cemetery that day. When I was trying to find him, you were standing right in front of the grave. You were hiding it from me. You knew the truth. Were you trying to keep it from me?

Zach: Why don't you ask yourself another question. Why would I care?

Reggie: Nurse?

Danielle: I'm a doctor.

Reggie: Ok, I'm sorry. Doctor, cover the dead guy.

Jamie: Whoa, whoa, "dead"?

Danielle: He's still talking and breathing.

Reggie: All right, then shut up and stop breathing, dead guy.

Maggie: Very little, shallow breaths.

Jamie: Why can't I just go to the OR?

Reggie: Because I -- we are the doctors, and we've saved --

Danielle: I've saved thousands of lives in my career, but you -- your case was beyond even the great me. So, bye-bye.

Jamie: Oh -- hey, no --

Maggie: Oh, wow, good luck, guys.

Reggie: Ok, well, you better start crying because you're the grieving widow.

Danielle: Yeah. Sorry we couldn't lift you some sexy black dress.

Maggie: Oh, it's too soon for that. He just died.

Reggie: Ok, well, start crying so we can get out of here.

[Maggie imitates crying]

Maggie: Enough?

Danielle: Try for real tears. Think of your cell phone bill.

Maggie: Oh, he was so young!

Danielle: And virile.

Maggie: And virile!

Edmund: I missed you. I can't get enough of you.

Maria: I missed you so much.

Ethan: I don't know who you are or what you do --

Zach: Then we're even.

Ethan: What were you doing in the cemetery that day?

Zach: Paying my respects to someone nearby.

Ethan: Erica Kane�s sainted mother? The town's reason for desecrating my uncle's body?

Zach: No. Never met the lady. And I didn't realize I was in your way that day. I sympathize with what you walked into here. Your uncle was the most unpopular guy in town.

Ethan: Looks like I'm heir to that, as well.

Zach: If you need any help, you let me know.

Ethan: No, I don't take help from people I don't trust.

Zach: Are you staying for the rest of the event?

Ethan: Would you like me to go?

Zach: No. The end is going to be unforgettable.

J.R.: Shh. Babe is in there with another man. We got to surprise her.

Adam: Ok. Maybe all she's got in there is an empty champagne bottle. J.R.? What?

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

J.R.: I married you because I had to! I married you, because I wanted to be the legal father of my daughter, so you'd never be able to take Bess away from me ever again.

Babe: You married me because you loved me.

J.R.: I married you because I hated you. I'm not finished. I'm going to need a witness for what comes next.
