Anita: Aidan.

Maggie: Hello? Hello -- can you let me in? I need chili cheese fries and a chocolate shake! Vanilla? Come on, I know you're in there! Let me in!

Man: Can't you read?

Maggie: Yeah, well, I'm too hungry to read.

Man: Then just listen -- we're closed.

Maggie: But --

Jonathan: You lose your manners after last call?

Man: What do you want?

Jonathan: I just want one minute. I'll make it worth your while. And, you -- don't go anywhere. Ok. Let's see what we can do about those cravings of yours. Come on in.

Krystal: You got real steel. I throw a full-grown daughter on you, a secret that could bring down hell on all of us, and you don't even flinch.

David: Hell happens to be my territory.

Krystal: Well, you could have unleashed it on my head and Babe's. Or you could have run, but -- but you're here. And no matter what happens, I'll always appreciate that. What do you think you're doing?

J.R.: You really think deep down in that flea brain of yours that you're going to get Bess away from me?

Babe: I will.

J.R.: Let me get this straight. You think my daughter's better off with a lying skank --

Jamie: You back off.

J.R.: Than she is with her responsible corporate executive father?

Adam: And his family.

Babe: I'm not the lying skank in this room.

J.R.: That's right. You're a perfect parent.

Babe: I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes.

J.R.: Yeah. You've made your last mistake with Bess. There's no way my daughter belongs with you.

Babe: You're right.

Bianca: Babe, what are you doing?

Babe: Bess doesn't belong with me.

Jamie: Babe, don't tell J.R. what he wants to hear.

Adam: You stay out of this.

Jamie: You shut up.

Adam: Martin, control your son.

Tad: I will if you will.

Adam: Why are you buffoons even here?

Tad: Because obviously Jamie cares about what happens to Babe, unlike her husband.

J.R.: Yeah, well, you know, this is about our child, it's a family issue, so why don't you both leave?

Bianca: Where do you get off -- your child? Bess belongs with her mother.

J.R.: Yeah? Babe's not even fit to raise a cactus.

Bianca: This coming from the man who almost got his wife and his brother killed.

J.R.: Yeah, as if I'm going to have my daughter raised by a lying slut and a psycho godmother.

Babe: Don't you dare talk to Bianca like that.

J.R.: I don't want to talk to her at all. I wish I never laid eyes on her.

Babe: J.R.!

J.R.: What do you expect? She kidnapped my baby.

Babe: Because she had just lost her own little girl. If you would have stopped for one second to try to understand that instead of looking at it that somebody took what was yours -- J.R., she was in pain.

J.R.: So get a pint of chocolate ice cream and get over it. Oh, that's right. You have an eating disorder, too.

Babe: You are so cruel. You don't even care who you rip apart -- your friends, your brother, the woman who loves you. It's all about you -- the world according to J.R., what you want and what you need. But the funny thing is, is you had everything -- a real family and friends and a wife who would have given you anything, J.R. -- a beautiful little girl -- and you blew it!

J.R.: It doesn't feel like it.

Babe: You hold on to that, because you're about to get what you deserve.

David: I was just looking at you.

Krystal: I know when somebody's window-shopping and when they're fixing to buy. You had your money out, cash in hand.

David: Hey, if I was buying, you'd know it.

Krystal: Oh. You know, you're working me over here -- all of this "we are so much alike," "let me buy you a drink," "I'll be there for you" crapola --

David: Hey, wait a minute. I meant every single word. And, yes, I could still use that drink.

Krystal: Oh, yeah, to set the mood? Get a little nip of courage before you make your move?

David: Wait, wait -- where do you get this stuff?

Krystal: I've been on the wrong end of a few too many mashers, thank you.

David: "Mashers"? I'm sorry. I've never heard that word.

Krystal: Oh, don't change the subject. Just because Tad is going to dump me when he finds out about Bess does not mean that I am ready for the next whirly-go-round.

David: Boy, all these suspicions. Maybe you've been living in this house too long.

Krystal: Nothing about the Chandlers is going to rub off on me. And considering your track record, I have good reason, good reason to keep my antennae up, thank you.

David: Look, I wasn't making any moves on you, so you can relax.

Krystal: Then why were you playing it so nice?

David: I'm trying to help you and Babe, ok? After all these years, I get the chance. Yeah, I'd like to help my kid. Is there something horrible about that?

Krystal: You don't need to work out your guilt on our account, and you didn't even know Babe.

David: I know her now, and I'd like to help her now, ok?

Krystal: All right, so help, but don't expect me to stick my tongue out and say "ah" or "ooh."

David: Look, look, if I was trying to kiss you, I would have done it, ok? But let me tell you something. If I did, you would have loved it.

Krystal: Oh, I would have told you to go to hell!

David: Fine!

Krystal: Fine! And you keep your lips where I can see them. I'm sorry. I didn't -- I didn't mean to go off on you.

David: It's all right. You have a lot to go off on -- Babe and J.R. and Bess, Bianca.

Krystal: And Jamie, leaving the hospital before he can barely walk. You know, they're probably raising the roof at that fundraiser right now. I just -- I wonder if Babe is handling J.R. I hope the odds are in her favor.

David: My money's on Babe. She's her mother's daughter.

Krystal: Lord help us. I better go check on Bess. The little peanut kicks her blanket off every night.

Maggie: Who are you?

Jonathan: I am Jonathan Lavery.

Maggie: Get out. You're related to Ryan?

Jonathan: Younger brother.

Maggie: Oh. Yeah, I can see it.

Jonathan: Yeah? I'll take that as a compliment.

Maggie: So, what about him?

Jonathan: Taken care of. Thank you so much for your hospitality. It's deeply appreciated.

Man: You better lock up.

Jonathan: I will. So, where were we?

Maggie: Bribery beats B&E.

Jonathan: Hey, when you got to eat, you got to eat, right? Jailhouse chow is not my idea of food.

Maggie: You do this often?

Jonathan: When I was in school. I'd close down the library and raid the cafeteria across the quad.

Maggie: You never got caught?

Jonathan: Uh-uh. In and out, no one the wiser. You just got to be neat. And what about you? Do you have any crimes on your rap sheet?

Maggie: Once I had to pull an all-nighter and the library had the one book I needed to polish off an exam.

Jonathan: B&E?

Maggie: Yeah.

Jonathan: Oh. Hey, look at us, huh? Two career criminals. Beer?

Maggie: Sure.

Jonathan: Bottle or draft?

Maggie: As long as it's cold.

Jonathan: Ok. And after happy hour, I'm going to get us some food. I'll even take requests, so I'll need a name first.

Maggie: Maggie Stone.

Jonathan: Hi. Hey, good name. Straightforward. I like it. I like you.

Maggie: You don't even know me.

Jonathan: I know that you like chili fries with cheese and that you'd break down a door to get them. I admire that in a woman.

Maggie: And that's all you need to know?

Jonathan: We are what we eat.

Maggie: Ok, so what do you crave?

Jonathan: Meat, lots of it, as long as it's raw.

Maggie: You're joking, right?

Jonathan: No, I'm not, but I'm not some weird, cannibalistic serial killer. Are you?

Maggie: No.

Anita: Are you all right?

Aidan: Yeah. I couldn't be better.

Anita: I didn't know you'd be here. Actually, I didn't know I would be here. I had to go to the hospital for an extra shift. I thought I'd be there all night, but surprise -- I got off early. I was too wired for TV or bed. I couldn't sleep, so I just figured, what the heck, I'll come. I mean, what's the worst that could happen? Champagne's flat? I'll lose at the slots? I got ready in, like, two seconds. I didn't -- I don't even think I brushed my hair. So, you can tell me -- what is it? Eggbeater hair? Is my lipstick smudged? Something showing that shouldn't?

Aidan: No. The hair is -- it's just right. You look really good.

Anita: It's so beautiful here. More glitz up there than in there. Oh, look -- a shooting star! Over there. You know what that means, right? Don't they teach you anything in England? We get to make wishes -- you know, "wish may, wish might --"

Aidan: "May I have the wish I wish tonight?" Well, I wish --

Anita: How about I go first, show you how it's done? I am a pro at making wishes.

Aidan: All righty. Do they come true?

Anita: Sometimes. I wish -- I wish I could find Bobby.

Aidan: Well, I'm sure that won't be too hard.

Anita: I -- I looked all over the casino and searched all the grounds. It seems I have a phantom husband. Have you seen him?

Aidan: Earlier, working the crowd.

Anita: Oh. Well, I'm sure I'll find him eventually. It's so peaceful. It's hard to leave.

Aidan: I mean, I was due inside 30 minutes ago.

Anita: Think a little bit more of this air and I will be ready to plunge back into that mob.

Aidan: You're not one for crowds?

Anita: Well, all the noise, people everywhere you look. It's like the ER.

Aidan: Yeah?

Anita: But this -- this is exactly what I needed. It's so hard to find -- peace.

Aidan: Well, there's a wish. I mean, not that you should change yours at all.

Anita: You know, when I -- when I get a house, I'm going to get one of these, and I am going to camp out in it every night if it's like this.

Aidan: And get eaten by mosquitoes?

Anita: Well, if that's your attitude, then you're not invited.

Aidan: Oh, dear. Oh, my God -- there was another one.

Anita: Where?

Aidan: You see that? Shooting star. Quick. Make a wish.

Anita: I -- I better make my other wish come true. I have to go find Bobby.

J.R.: Is that a threat? I should have known. You've been waiting for this since we first met.

Babe: It's the last thing that I wanted.

J.R.: Because it got messy? Because you're going to lose? You know, I should have seen that a long time ago back on that dock. You weren't helpless or lost. You were all big eyes, spun sugar. You played me.

Babe: I loved you.

J.R.: You used me. I was just too blind to see it.

Babe: No. We were both lost that night, J.R. We helped each other.

J.R.: Well, someone got help -- helped themselves right to my house, my money, that "Dynasty" life that you wouldn't shut up about, but you didn't figure that I'd see it. You didn't think I'd see you for the trash that you really are.

Jamie: You know what? You have no right to talk to her like that.

Tad: Hey, easy. By rights, you should still be in the hospital.

Jamie: No, J.R. can have my bed.

J.R.: Is this how you pictured it, everything that you wanted? Well, I'm sorry, because if you want to screw me over, you're going to have to be a whole hell of a lot smarter.

Bianca: Don't let him get to you, ok?

Babe: Not a chance. I pity you, J.R. Do you have to go through life seeing the bad in people?

J.R.: It's kind of hard when it's all up in your face.

Babe: It's inside you, J.R. You lie and you cheat and you steal and you destroy. And you assume we're all just as guilty. But we're just your mirror.

Adam: Obviously, all those hours of TV actually paid off, but please spare us the Dr. Phil analysis.

Babe: You know what? It's your fault J.R.'s this way.

Adam: Thank you. I've done my best.

Babe: You have hurt him for so long, since before he could defend himself, and now it's too late.

Adam: Yeah, well, we'll do just fine without you.

Babe: And without Bess. You're not going to poison her. I won't let you.

J.R.: You won't let us, Babe? You're not going to win, because we've got the clout to get what we want. You've got a tape. It won't hold up in court.

Babe: You know what? That baby belongs with her mama, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

[Phone rings]

Babe: Bianca, there's something that I have to tell you.

Tad: Hello? Yeah. It's ok, Krystal. Hang on. She's right here. Babe?

Babe: Mama. Mama, you were right. Everybody was right. He admitted it. He's guilty. It's over.

Krystal: Babe --

Babe: Mama, I know what I have to do. I got to do right by Bess, and Bianca's right here with me.

Krystal: She's -- she's gone.

Babe: What?

Krystal: Bess is gone.

Anita: Mr. Slater? It's Anita. I'm looking for Bobby --

[Anita gasps]

Anita: Who's there? Oh.

Aidan: Hey --

Anita: It's you. You scared the heck out of me, Aidan. What are you doing here?

Maggie: Fat and sugar, with a side of fat and sugar.

Jonathan: You, you -- you're not paying attention. This -- this is a perfectly balanced meal. Ok, we have dairy --

Maggie: Don't you mean plastic?

Jonathan: Hmm? We also have protein.

Maggie: Oh.

Jonathan: Yes.

Maggie: Oh, that's really gross.

Jonathan: Mm-hmm. Then, not to mention the most important food group --

Maggie: Beer.

Jonathan: No. Vegetables.

Maggie: You're good at this spin thing, aren't you?

Jonathan: I'm just really hungry.

Maggie: So, what is the deal? I mean, couldn't sleep? Got the munchies?

Jonathan: Working late, I forgot to eat. What's your excuse?

Maggie: Out with friends.

Jonathan: Bad times always make you hungry? Hi. Where'd you go?

Maggie: I'm sorry. What?

Jonathan: I lost you for a second. I hope it wasn't because of the potato chip with cream --

Maggie: Have you ever loved someone and then realized that you were a total jerk because you never had the chance?

Babe: What do you mean? Bess is gone?

Jamie: What?

Tad: When?

Bianca: No.

Babe: Mama, what happened?

Krystal: I went upstairs to check to see if Bess was still tucked in, and she was not in her crib.

Babe: Well, maybe -- did you check the house? Maybe Beverly took her to the kitchen or something.

Krystal: I checked, basement to garret. She wasn't there and that nanny was gone, too. I thought maybe that you or J.R. had called Beverly to see if they could bring Bess to you.

David: Babe, it's me, David. Listen, is J.R. with you right now?

Babe: Yes.

David: What have you said to him?

Babe: I said that he couldn't have Bess, especially what he's done to everybody.

David: Ok. Babe, hold on. Now, did you tell J.R. that Bess is not his?

Babe: No, not yet.

David: Good. Don't.

Babe: What -- no, no. It has been way too long.

David: Babe, listen to me. The most important thing right now is Bess. If J.R.'s behind this, Bess is a lot safer if he believes that she's his, ok? Once J.R. knows the truth, we don't know what he's going to do.

Babe: I know what I have to do.

Bianca: Babe, what is it? What did your mother say --

Babe: You took her, didn't you?

Tad: No, no --

Babe: J.R., where's Bess?

Bianca: Oh -- Babe!

Babe: Where is Bess?

Bianca: Come here, it's ok.

Tad: Easy, easy.

Babe: Tell me, J.R.!

Tad: Hey, take it easy.

Babe: Where's Bess?

Bianca: Babe, back off.

Babe: You know where she is.

J.R.: Bianca's the expert at snatching children.

Jamie: You answer her! Where is Bess?

Adam: Babe, this is so like you -- blaming J.R. because you can't keep track of your own child. I hope that camera's still running to catch this moment.

Babe: Children should be safe at home at this time of night.

Tad: Apparently not at Chez Chandler. What the hell's going on? Did you or did you not stash that baby somewhere?

Adam: Don't be absurd.

Bianca: Babe, what did your mother say?

Babe: She said that she went in to check on Bess, and Bess was gone and so was Beverly.

Adam: Well, and that's it?

Jamie: Isn't that enough?

Adam: Well, consider the source. Krystal goes on red alert if she breaks a nail.

J.R.: You know, it's really no big deal. Beverly takes Bess out all the time.

Tad: At this hour of the night?

J.R.: Sometimes.

Babe: She does not!

J.R.: Well, she's been waking up a lot lately crying.

Babe: Oh, please.

J.R.: Beverly and I -- we have done everything. We have tried rocking and walking, but we realized that Bess likes car rides, so we take her around the block a couple laps, she's in dreamland.

Babe: And you are so full of it, J.R. If all this was happening, don't you think I would have known?

J.R.: Like you knew about me?

Adam: Ah. Beverly. It's -- it's Adam, calling to check on my granddaughter. She is? Wonderful.

Bianca: Oh --

Babe: Give it to me.

Adam: No, no, no. Bess is just fine.

Babe: What did Beverly say? Where are they?

Adam: J.R. was right. Bess woke up fussing --

Babe: No. No, Mama would have heard her.

Adam: Well, Krystal was busy catching up with her tabloids -- you know, sounding out the big words. Anyway, since the usual remedies didn't work, Beverly took Bess for a ride.

Tad: Bess isn't the only one being taken for a ride.

Adam: I wouldn't expect you to believe me, Martin.

Babe: You know what? I don't believe you, either. Yeah, she's not answering!

Adam: Hmm. The miracle of caller ID.

Babe: Adam, can you please just call Beverly just one more time? Just have her bring Bess here.

Adam: This is not an atmosphere for a child!

Jamie: What exactly are you trying to pull?

Adam: Son, you look a little gray. Maybe your father should take you to the hospital.

Jamie: No, no, no, no. I'm not going anywhere until we know where Bess is.

J.R.: Then you should leave because we know where she is.

Jamie: Oh, like when you kidnapped her?

J.R.: Once again, I am not the expert. Bianca is.

Jamie: I got to give you props, bro. I mean, that must have been a lot of work -- baby-snatching in broad daylight and all the lies, the timing? But you pulled it off, all to make Babe look bad.

J.R.: Oh, she doesn't need any help with that.

Jamie: Well, Babe didn't slip up and let any stranger near her baby. Her only mistake was letting you get close to Bess.

J.R.: Like she has a choice.

Jamie: You know what your problem is? Not knowing when to quit, like when you drugged Babe's drink at that club. But then, you know, that got a little messy, didn't it?

J.R.: Yeah, I told you that was your loss. You could have gotten lucky that night.

Jamie: No, Babe almost died.

J.R.: But she didn't.

Jamie: Well, ok, you know what? Compared to all the other crap that you've been pulling lately, this was probably pretty simple. I mean, one call to your guard-dog nanny and Bess just vanishes.

J.R.: Babe, honey? Did you even get a chance to kiss Bess good night?

Babe: Oh, you take that back! I will kill you! I swear I will kill you!

David: Wait.

Krystal: Let me go.

David: Why don't you let me drive?

Krystal: I have to do this. I got to find Bess.

David: No, what you have to do is calm down, Krystal.

Krystal: Not until that baby is in my arms. This is my fault, David. I should have been staying home and bird-dogging that nanny, and she slipped right out from underneath me.

David: You could hardly blame yourself for that.

Krystal: I'm an expert on men. I know the difference between gold and dirt, and J.R. -- I should have seen him for what he is. I should have seen him as his father's son, rotten to the core, and warned Babe to the end of the planet.

David: Yeah, well, for what it's worth, J.R. wasn't always like this, ok? He survived a pretty twisted childhood. His mother's the one that kept his heart alive, but when she died, well, now he wears his anger like a family crest.

Krystal: Like his dad. What do you think he's going to do when he finds out that Bess isn't his?

David: J.R. has been nursing this anger for sometime now. Somebody pulls the wrong trigger and kaboom.

Krystal: Yeah, well, the first whiff of doubt, I should have grabbed Babe and Bess and run and never looked back.

David: All right, but we're going to save them now.

Krystal: You're damn straight we are.

[Car engine starts]

Maggie: Don't tell me that you're one of those sucky people who's lucky in love every time you're out of the box.

Jonathan: Better. I don't do love.

Maggie: You don't do love.

Jonathan: Uh-uh. Best decision I ever made.

Maggie: What are you talking about? Love is what it's all about. It's the point of everything.

Jonathan: That's propaganda.

Maggie: Ok, you're crazy. You're totally missing out.

Jonathan: Yeah? Are you so happy?

Maggie: All right, so I hit a glitch, but I'm not giving up. You haven't even tried?

Jonathan: Call it pain aversion. Does she? Doesn't she? Will she? Won't she? And if she doesn't, your entire world comes crashing down around you.

Maggie: Yeah, tell me about it.

Jonathan: And if she does, you wish she hadn't, so in the end, everyone gets hurt.

Maggie: Very cynical.

Jonathan: One man's opinion.

Maggie: Well, it seems kind of sad.

Jonathan: And who's the one crying in her beer?

Maggie: Oh, I am not crying. All right, so I may hurt once in a while. But, you know, one day --

Jonathan: One day Mr. Wonderful is going to come galloping along on a white horse and sweep you off your sexy little feet.

Maggie: Yeah, something like that.

Jonathan: Send me a post card.

Maggie: I get it. I totally get it. You've had your heart stomped on, so this is all about self-preservation.

Jonathan: Nope, that's not it. I call my own shots.

Maggie: So you've never really had a girlfriend?

Jonathan: I've had crushes. I've had dates. I've had sex, which there's nothing wrong with that.

Maggie: No, not a thing.

Jonathan: But I have never lost sleep, lost weight, or lost my sanity over anyone.

Maggie: Well, you're a really frosty guy.

Jonathan: Yeah. Do I feel cold?

Maggie: No. Actually, you feel kind of hot.

Jonathan: So do you.

Anita: What, you break into dark offices every day?

Aidan: I'm sorry you saw this, Anita, but it doesn't concern you.

Anita: Oh. It does now.

Aidan: Anita, please. And don't be going telling Bobby about this.

Anita: Why not? Are you investigating Zach? Don't tell me that you're investigating Bobby.

Aidan: Anita, please, all right? Just go find your husband, all right? Dance, play the slots.

Anita: Well, I'll do that, just as soon as you tell me why I am keeping this secret from him.

Aidan: You know, if you tell Bobby, you'll compromise him, his job, and maybe even someone you care about.

Anita: Why are you trying to scare me off?

Aidan: I'm not. I'm trying to protect you.

Anita: Like before, when you told me about Bobby and Erica? I mean, Aidan, you freaked me out. I almost divorced him.

Aidan: It's not like that, ok, so don't freak out.

Anita: Yeah, but, I mean, you're snooping around, you don't want me to tell Bobby. How can I not worry?

Aidan: I'm not trying to dig up dirt on Bobby.

Anita: Yeah, but dirt is why you're here. I mean, is it Zach?

Aidan: If you keep up with these questions, Anita, Zach could be here any minute with a bunch of his own.

Anita: Well, I mean, what's he done? Is he, like, one of those ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom type mobster criminal? What?

Aidan: I don't know. Zach Slater is a mystery. That's why we're trying to check him out.

Anita: "We"? Who's "we"? Well, I'll list everybody alphabetically until you tell me.

Aidan: Edmund.

Anita: Edmund? Why is he interested? Is he doing a story?

Aidan: If I said yes, would you leave?

Anita: No, because I know there's more.

Aidan: Look, Zach Slater comes into town, into Pine Valley. He buys a place, he's got a business, he mixed with some big shots and some people that we care about. We just want to know why.

Anita: Well, ask Bobby. I mean, he might be able to help.

Aidan: Edmund tried. He turned us down.

Anita: He did? So -- what, you're going to assume he's guilty of something?

Aidan: This isn't about Bobby, ok? Trust me. Trust Edmund. Let us do this. It's critical.

Anita: I won't tell Bobby.

Aidan: Anita, I lied before. Earlier when I said you looked good? You look beautiful.

Bianca: Babe!

Tad: No, no --

Babe: I'll kill you, J.R.!

Bianca: Stop it.

Tad: Easy, easy.

Bianca: Stop it! Stop it!

Babe: Let me go!

Bianca: Now, Babe --

Tad: Stop it!

Bianca: Babe, it doesn't solve anything.

Babe: He knows where she is. Don't you, J.R.? You know where Bess is! Tell me!

J.R.: Or what? Going to kill me? You hear that? She threatened me.

Babe: And I will keep threatening you until Bess is back where she belongs.

J.R.: Oh, don't worry. Bess will be right where she belongs -- with her daddy.

Babe: She deserves to be with her mother, and you can't stop it!

J.R.: Watch me.

Babe: You -- oh!

Bianca: No, no, no!

Jamie: Babe, Babe!

Bianca: Babe, Babe.

Adam: I always knew she was unstable.

Babe: You can't hide her forever, Adam. I will find her, and when I do, I will take you down.

Adam: Are you threatening to kill me, too?

Tad: Babe, be smart. All you've done is buy yourself a little time.

Adam: Well, time is all we need -- and power and money. You realize we won't lose.

Tad: I wouldn't celebrate just yet. I'm going to find that nanny.

Adam: Oh, yes -- Tad Martin -- private dick to the rescue! You'll forgive me if I'm not too worried. Now, if there are no more threats or accusations, I'd like to get my son out of here. He's had quite a shock. J.R.

J.R.: Yeah. The stench is killing me.

Bianca: All right, all right. Now what?

Tad: I meant what I said. I'm going to find that baby. Babe, look at me. What's your nanny's full name?

Babe: Beverly Lansing.

Tad: All right, all right. Now, listen, you try to remain calm. I will call you as soon as I find her.

Babe: Tad, you think you can really find them?

Tad: You can count on it. I want you to watch out after Babe, ok?

Jamie: That was my plan.

Tad: It's all I want you to do. I don't want you going after J.R. or Adam. At least wait till your stitches heal.

Jamie: I'll try, but it's not going to be easy.

Babe: How is this happening? How can they do this?

Bianca: I don't know. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.

Babe: I believed that lying skeeve. Bianca, I trusted him and I loved him all of this time. Did you see the look in his eyes? How can I even -- how could I have missed that much hate? God.

Bianca: Because you loved him.

Babe: No, it's because I'm an idiot! God. You were right all along, Jamie. And what did I do? Did I believe you? No, I had to believe that my husband loved me and my marriage was rock solid, and I told myself all of these lies about you, that you were jealous and that you were crazy. I accused you of all kinds of horrible things.

Jamie: It's over, Babe. It's fine.

Babe: It's not. It's not over. All you wanted to do was help me, and what did I do? I ignored it. Worse, I turned against you. If I would have just kept my stupid mouth shut. You almost died because of me. Jamie, I'm so, so sorry.

David: Krystal, slow down. You're driving way too fast.

Krystal: That woman has got a heck of a start on us. I'm not going to find her if I'm going the speed limit.

David: Yeah, well, we're not going to be much help to anyone if we're dead.

Krystal: She could be across the state line, David. If she's that far, we might not ever find her.

David: We're not going to find her if we're wrapped around a tree, either.

Krystal: I'm not slowing down till I find that baby.

David: All right, look, that's it! Look, you're out of control, Krystal. Just pull over and let me drive!

Krystal: Shut up and hold on!

David: I'm not kidding, Krystal! Pull over! Ok.

Krystal: What are you doing?

Maggie: To the genius bartender. This really beats the first part of my evening. Thank you for everything.

Jonathan: Maybe -- maybe next time we should get it to go. I'd like to do this again. Are there any other bars around that you'd like to lay down on?

Maggie: Huh! Maybe one or two. I was actually going to ask you the same thing, but minus the lying-down part.

Jonathan: Hold on. Give me your number, right there.

Maggie: Are you serious?

Jonathan: I'm dead serious. It's way too important to lose.

Aidan: Yes. I knew you was up to something, Slater.

David: You're driving like a maniac.

Krystal: I can't help it! I've got to find Bess! I got to do something right!

David: Well, turning us into roadkill is not the answer.

Krystal: Oh, David, I should have left it alone. I should never have touched that DNA test. If I hadn't, J.R. would have known the truth months ago. He wouldn't have married Babe, Bess would be with her mother, and Bianca wouldn't have suffered all this time, and my baby doll -- I had to play God, and look what happened. I thought I was helping Babe, and I just threw her right into the deep end of misery.

David: Hey. You did what you thought was right.

Krystal: And blew how many hearts into smithereens? Look, everything's in pieces, and it's all my fault!

David: Krystal, breathe. Now, we're going to make this right. We're going to find that baby, but we're not going to kill ourselves in the process.

Krystal: I lost my head.

David: You should lose your license the way you drive. Now, move. I'm taking over. What?

J.R.: I don't believe this! All that work, all the planning, all the months, and Babe with her two flipping brain cells finally catches on and -- and she shoots back!

Adam: It's not that bad.

J.R.: How can you say that? How can you even possibly think that? There was a whole room full of witnesses in there that overheard me say that I hate her guts! They got it on videotape, even!

Adam: They don't have Bess.

J.R.: For now.

Adam: Calm down. Calm down. We've hit obstacles before.

J.R.: Yeah, but not like this.

Adam: Focus. Something very significant happened tonight.

J.R.: Yeah -- I lost the upper hand.

Adam: No -- your wife threatened to kill you in front of all of those same witnesses.

J.R.: Yeah. But too bad we didn't have it on tape.

Adam: We don't need it! Babe kick-started our plan, and it's a beauty! We're going to win this, son. And when we do, you're going to have Bess all to yourself.

Babe: It just should have never gotten this far. I could have stopped it.

Jamie: You didn't know what J.R. was planning.

Babe: I would have if I would have listened to you. And, you, Bianca.

Bianca: Babe, nobody wants to believe that the person they love is capable of what J.R. did.

Babe: I should have paid attention, though. God, I was just caught up in some stupid fantasy, too desperate to get what I wanted. I waited too long. Now Bess could be -- she could be in danger, and it's all my fault.

Jamie: Babe, it is not your fault. We'll find Bess.

Bianca: That's right. Don't you worry, ok? We're going to get our little girl back.

Babe: You're right. We will get our little girl back.

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

J.R.: Are you out of your mind?

Babe: And right by your side until you bring that baby home.

Kendall: Look -- brutal proof that Greenlee does not deserve Ryan, so that's why I need you, Mother. You have to make him see it.

Greenlee: Our big talk?

Ryan: I think we should bump it up.

Greenlee: To when?

Ryan: Now.
