Babe: I knew it was too good to be true. All kinds of scammers could call and say that information about Bess.

Jamie: The guy knew about her clothes, her blanket. It's got to mean something.

Babe: What, that I'm an easy sell? I can't do this anymore, Jamie. I just want her back.

Jamie: We'll get her. Don't worry. I mean, this jerk ditched us, but he's a loose end, and maybe we can use that.

Babe: Do you still think that J.R.'s involved?

J.R.: Well, well, well. Look who's back. Can't say that I missed you. Where'd you two disappear to?

Jamie: Were you behind it? Did you set us up with that jerk and his information about Bess?

J.R.: Well, I generally like to stay away from jerks, but that also goes for soon-to-be ex-wives and brothers.

Jamie: You know, I'm sick of your games.

Babe: Jamie, stop. He's not worth it.

J.R.: That's not what you used to say about that platinum card. I hope you can afford her.

Jamie: Shut your mouth.

J.R.: You want to do it, don't you? Don't you? Go ahead. Give me your best shot, Jamie. Put it right there. Do it.

Krystal: I thought you said the guards were slow around here.

Tad: Yeah, well obviously they hired up, so just relax. We're going to have to sit tight for a while.

David: Oh, this is great. We're trapped in a mental ward while Bess is probably miles away from here. Any more brilliant ideas, Martin?

Krystal: What are they doing here?

David: Oh, it's where they prep patients for ECT.

Krystal: Easy what?

David: ECT. It stands for electric shock therapy. The magic happens right in there.

Tad: Damn it!

Krystal: What?

Tad: Zap me.

Krystal: What?

Tad: I mean it. Prep me for shock. Now.

Maria: Are you ok, honey? What's wrong? Oh, you're just dreaming, sweetie.

Zach: I died. I died. I left them.

Maria: No, you're dreaming. You're right here with me, sweetie. It's ok. You ok? You're very much alive. You're right here with me. What were you dreaming about? What were you dreaming about? Oh, God, Zach.

[Knock on door]

Zach: Come on in.

Bianca: Zach.

Zach: I know why you're here. You want to know about the game and about the shooting.

Bianca: I want the truth.

Anita: Zach keeping you awake?

Maria: What do you mean, Zach?

Anita: Well, I-- I heard you say his name.

Maria: I don't -- I did? I don't think so.

Anita: You weren't counting sheep. I heard you say, "Oh, God, Zach."

Maria: I -- don't -- I guess maybe I actually did fall asleep, then. I don't know. You know how sometimes you're asleep, but you really think you're -- think you're awake. I don't know. I was thinking about Ryan, basically, and -- the shooting was just -- I mean, I almost lost him. He almost died. And I'm just so thankful he came through the surgery ok.

Anita: So where does Zach fit in?

Maria: Uh -- the casino.

Anita: Yeah, and he set up the game. You sounded -- I don't know -- you sounded worried about him.

Maria: I -- I mean, everybody came down on him, you know, really hard on him.

Anita: You feel sorry for him?

Maria: I don't think he meant for anybody to get shot. I really don't. Not him or, you know, not Ryan or anybody else.

Anita: How can you be so sure?

Maria: He's just, you know, not the type, from what I know of the guy.

Anita: What do you know?

Maria: I just -- you know, I don't know any more or less than anybody else. What's this whole thing with Zach Slater?

Anita: Well, Bobby works for him. I don't know, if there's something kinky with the guy, I just -- I want to know.

Maria: Well, I can't really help you there.

Anita: So, you and Zach are not close?

Maria: It's hi and goodbye. That's -- he's not really a chatterbox, the guy, you know, so --

Anita: You would tell me, wouldn't you?

Maria: You're my sister.

Maria: You know what? I have put in so many hours. I'm out of here.

Anita: Hey, are you sure you're ok?

Maria: Yeah, I am. I'm just -- I'm tired. I just need to get some sleep. I'll see you.

Zach: I already told everyone the truth.

Bianca: Well, I want to hear it again.

Zach: I set up a murder game, and I personally put blanks into the gun. I don't know why or how Ryan got shot.

Bianca: You pushed me to leave the party early.

Zach: You were exhausted.

Bianca: No, that's not it. You wanted me gone before the game began.

Zach: Because I thought it might upset you.

Bianca: Because the game was based on real life? Because the whole thing, down to the gun, was your weird take on what happened to Michael Cambias?

Zach: I wasn't aware of the similarities until after the fact.

Bianca: Oh, come on. Yes, you were. Otherwise, why else would you want me to go?

Zach: I'm sorry. I've upset you and --

Bianca: You're not sorry. Otherwise, you wouldn't have used a fundraiser for my daughter's charity to stage your twisted game.

Zach: I was just trying to provide some entertainment.

Bianca: Were you entertained? I know that you were watching the whole thing on your security monitors. Was that to keep your players honest?

Zach: We always have monitors in the casino. It's part of security.

Bianca: Well, I think you should be under surveillance. I thought I could trust you.

Zach: You can.

Bianca: You told me that you wanted to host this fundraiser, because you had lost somebody close to you, and I believed you.

Zach: I did lose someone close to me.

Bianca: You said that you cared about me. You said you cared about my daughter, my loss, and I believed that, too. Was that all just part of your game?

Zach: I care about you and Miranda more than you know.

J.R.: Take a swing.

Babe: Jamie, don't. Remember what you told me? Things are crazy enough already.

[J.R. laughs]

J.R.: You're already whipped. Who would have thought?

Jamie: You know what? Just stop screwing with Babe and Bess. What kind of dad does this to their kid?

J.R.: My kid, yeah. And she's perfectly happy. No, better yet, she's safe. Someone has to protect her.

Jamie: From her mother?

J.R.: From the insanity! Babe had me handcuffed. Krystal blew up my car. And you're always in my face, and there's Tad and there's Hayward. I mean, what kind of atmosphere is that for my daughter?

Jamie: So instead, she gets your lies to rock her to sleep at night.

J.R.: No, actually, that's Babe's expertise. I just learned from the master. By the way, Jamie, smile, because you're on TV. I installed a camera, just in case. I just wish you would have hit me. It would have played a lot better in court.

Babe: You think that you are so in control, total master of the universe. But you're not. You don't know everything, J.R.

Tad: Hey, hey, hey, come on. Not so tight, all right? Ow. You miserable son --

David: What do you think you're doing?

Officer: There's been a security breach.

David: I don't care if the sky is falling!

Officer: We need to search the hospital, doctor.

David: We're about to treat this patient. Now, get out of here!

Krystal: Unless you want to be next.

Officer: No, we have orders.

[Tad mumbles]

David: This patient needs our immediate attention. All right, obviously we have to get Dr. Beeman involved.

Officer: That won't be necessary.

Second Officer: It's clear. Let's go.

First Officer: Look, if you see anything suspicious --

David: It's a psychiatric hospital.

Officer: Right.

Tad: Well, that went well.

Krystal: Good thing you saw those goons coming.

Tad: Well, when it comes to brilliant ideas, somebody around here's got to do the thinking. Right, dipstick?

Krystal: Here, I just thought you were looking for a cheap thrill.

David: That can still be arranged.

Tad: Don't even joke, ok? Just undo me. I can't even feel my fingers anymore.

David: Oh, I don't know. A thousand volts might do you good.

Tad: Forget it, David. Nobody's flicking a switch on this Christmas tree. Now, just let me up.

David: And miss my one and only chance to Martinize you?

Tad: Thank you, Dr. Demented. I need help over here.

Krystal: Oh, would you two just cut it out, ok? We're looking for Bess. We're not trying to fry anybody's brains.

David: So how do you like them, extra crispy?

Krystal: Would you stop joking around? For fooling around.

David: I'm not joking.

Krystal: You know what? When I tried to zap J.R.'s vitals with a 12-volt, you stopped me.

Tad: For God's sake, just remind me never to let either one of you near my fuse box. Let me up!

David: That's totally different. I could actually help Martin.

Krystal: You know what? If Tad hadn't helped us, those guards would have us in shackles by now.

David: Come on, Krystal. One jolt -- just enough juice to get rid of his personality disorders.

Krystal: I like his disorders.

Tad: The floor show's over. Would one of you let me up?

David: I'm telling you, you're making a big mistake. With Martin, without the smirk, the attitude, life would have been so sweet.

Tad: Sweet. Sweet. That's it! Come on.

David: It's not too late.

Tad: No, no, no, no, not this. That's it. I know where Bess is. Come on. Keep the jacket.

Aidan: Made any wishes lately?

Anita: Aidan, sorry. I'm just kind of out of it. What brings you here?

Aidan: Ryan. How is he?

Anita: He's still in ICU.

Aidan: So we should hold off on the arm wrestling, then. Maybe I could spring for some manly flowers.

Anita: Hey, Aidan, were you still at the casino when Ryan was shot?

Aidan: Yeah, I was, but I didn't see it happen.

Anita: Well, were you still snooping around? I mean, did you get anything on Zach?

Aidan: Can we go in here for a minute?

Anita: Yeah. Just I want to know, you know, if -- is he a criminal? I mean, do you think that somehow he's involved in getting Ryan shot?

Aidan: I really don't want to involve you, Anita.

Anita: I'm already involved. I mean, I saw you in his office, my husband works for him, and my sister --

Aidan: Your sister -- what about your sister?

Anita: I just -- I think that she might be involved with Zach somehow. What? Aidan, do you know something about Zach and Maria?

Bianca: If you cared so much about me and my daughter, there's no way you would have freaked out my family and my friends the way you did. We have all worked so hard to put Michael Cambias behind us, and you put him front and center. My sister ends up shooting the man she loves. Do you have any idea what that did to her?

Zach: I'm sorry.

Bianca: Stop saying you're sorry! Kendall is a mess. She's doubting her sanity. My mother, who's straight out of rehab and trying to maintain some kind of balance, and then you throw this at her.

Zach: I never meant to hurt you or your family.

Bianca: Should I believe you, or is this just a part of the game? Is this just a new round? What's next -- more cards, more clues, more bullets? What?

Zach: You asked me a question. I answered it. Now, whether you believe me or not, that's up to you.

Babe: You answer so politely, so controlled, always leaving something out. Why? I don't understand your game, Zach. I don't understand you. Why did you come here? What do you want from us? Who are you?

Maria: I can tell you exactly who Zach Slater is.

Aidan: What makes you think that Maria and Slater are involved with each other?

Anita: Well, today, Maria was resting. She thought that she was alone, and I heard her say Zach's name. But it was the way that she said it. I mean, you don't just shout a stranger's name like that.

Aidan: So did you ask her about it?

Anita: Yeah. She couldn't get away fast enough.

Aidan: Yep. I really think you should let this go.

Anita: Aidan, a man was almost killed playing Zach's little murder game, and you and Edmund have been checking him out. And if Maria is somehow connected, I mean, she could be in danger.

Aidan: You know, you really need to leave this alone, Anita.

Anita: Aidan, she's my sister. If she's in trouble, she needs me.

Aidan: If you really want to help her, the best way to do it is to stay out of it. I mean it.

Anita: I'm already in it. Please, Aidan, just tell me. I mean, you know you can trust me.

Aidan: I know, I know. Zach and Maria are connected. They knew each other a few years ago.

Anita: A few years ago? She told me that she had just met him at the Fourth of July picnic. Why would she lie about that? Why not just come out and say it? Unless -- Maria and Zach were together? Are they still together?

Maria: Not many people know this, but Zach and I know each other quite well.

Bianca: From before he came to Pine Valley?

Maria: Yeah, we were close.

Bianca: So, you're old friends.

Maria: And I know that you don't maybe know him well enough to trust him, but I just want to let you know that I do. He's a good man. He's honorable.

Bianca: You know, there's nothing honorable about what happened to Ryan.

Maria: No, you're absolutely right, but Zach had nothing to do with Ryan's shooting.

Bianca: Zach set up the whole murder game. He's the one who chose Ryan as the victim.

Maria: I know, but on paper, yes. On paper. But somebody else came into this game and used the game to hurt Ryan, not Zach. Look, I know you've said, told me, and he's told me how much he cares about you, cares about Miranda, and I believe him, and I believe that he has nothing to do with this shooting.

Bianca: You're lucky to have Maria in your corner.

Zach: I won't argue that.

Maria: Are you doing ok?

Bianca: Yeah, I'm fine. It's Kendall I'm worried about. She's a wreck. You know that she didn't put that bullet in the gun.

Zach: I'll find out who did, I promise. Thank you.

Maria: Oh, please. For what?

Zach: Well, for not telling her that she was putting the screws in Alexander Cambias, Jr. and thank you for not telling anyone.

Maria: Couldn't do it.

Zach: Why not? Why are you keeping my secret?

Tad: All right, this has got to be it.

Krystal: What? What's it?

David: Yeah, what? What, a dead end?

Tad: The VIP suite.

David: You've got to be kidding.

Tad: No, no, no, it makes perfect sense, ok? All of these rooms are segregated from the rest of the wards. They're for rich loonies who don't want to have, you know, nervous breakdowns on the front page of the tabloids.

David: So how do you know about this?

Tad: Because I found them a long, long time ago when I was looking for Dixie. I forgot all about it until you started going on and on about how sweet it would be to erase my personality.

Krystal: Yeah, well, that's one sweet suite, all right. Isolated, quiet -- so nobody will hear when I bust that nanny's head open.

Tad: No, we don't want to warn Beverly.

[Beverly gasps]

[Bess cries]

J.R.: Reality check, Babe. I'm going to have full custody of Bess, and Daddy's little girl is never going to have to see her mama ever again.

Babe: You are so wrong. Bess is going to be with her mama forever and always, and there's absolutely nothing that you can do to stop it.

Jamie: No, no, don't waste your breath on him.

J.R.: All I'm going to have to do is wait for the judge's rule, and Bess will be all mine.

Babe: Only in your dreams. I haven't told you everything, J.R.

J.R.: Ooh -- ooh, there's more? I can hardly contain myself. What is it, a new husband? New boyfriend? Possibly a girlfriend? What?

Babe: I was so crazy in love with you, I didn't want to hurt you, so I lied.

J.R.: You lied. Wow. Where have I heard that one before?

Babe: I shouldn't have, but I did.

Jamie: Babe, where are you going with this?

J.R.: Yeah, why tell me now? What difference does it make?

Babe: Because loving you is the only reason that I didn't do the right thing.

J.R.: What? It's my fault that you lied.

Babe: I had a choice, but now you are going to get it right between the eyes, so hold on, J.R. Time for the shocker truth about Bess' mama.

J.R.: Well, you certainly got me hooked. New secret, new lie. Should I sit down?

Babe: I don't give a damn what you do, J.R. All that matters is that the truth is going to finally be out.

J.R.: So what is this big, bad secret?

Jamie: Whatever you think you got to say, don't. If J.R. can use it against you in court, you're screwed.

Babe: Jamie, you don't understand. There's not even going to be a custody trial once I tell J.R. this.

[Phone rings]

Babe: Everything's --

J.R.: I'm sorry. I'm going to have to take this. But hold that silly thought.

Babe: God --

J.R.: Beverly, is everything all right?

Beverly: Mr. Chandler, you need to get to Oak Haven right away.

J.R.: Why? What happened?

Beverly: It's not safe here anymore. You got to help me.

J.R.: What do you mean, you need more help? You need some more guards? You need -- Beverly? Hello? Damn it.

Jamie: You're really worked up.

Babe: I have to do this -- I have to tell J.R. I have to tell you.

Jamie: Tell me what?

Babe: Jamie, I don't even know where to begin.

[Phone rings]

Babe: God, now what?

Jamie: Could be good news. Hey, Dad, what's up?

Tad: Jamie, the baby's all right. We've got her.

Jamie: They got Bess. She's going to be all right.

Babe: Oh, God, where is she? I have to see her.

Tad: We're taking Bess back to my place. You and Jamie meet us there.

Babe: Thank you, Tad. Thank you so much. You're the best. Is she really ok?

Tad: I guess you'll see for yourself, and she'll be back in your arms in no time at all.

David: Come on, look at you. The princess rescued.

Krystal: No, almost. We got to get this little baby ready to bust out of here.

Tad: I appreciate the phone call to J.R., not that you had much choice. By now he'll be speeding his way over here, which means that she'll be safe to be with her mother, no thanks to you.

Beverly: I was just -- I was just doing my job, Mr. Martin. I didn't know.

Tad: Well, now you do.

Beverly: Mr. Chandler-- he convinced me that Mrs. Chandler was a bad mother, you know, a threat to the baby.

Tad: You saw Babe with her child. Shame on you for believing something like that, or expecting me to.

Beverly: About my --

Tad: Indiscretions? Don't worry. As long as you're onboard with the good guys, your secret is safe.

Beverly: You swear you won't tell?

Tad: We have a deal, don't we? You play ball, your police pension is safe.

Beverly: Thank you.

Tad: Don't. Don't thank me. And don't expect a letter of reference, either. You can go. Now.

Krystal: Would you look, Bess? That is the hunk of man who figured out where to find you.

[Tad speaks baby talk]

Krystal: What? What's that? You want to give him a kiss? Well, you got to wait in line, sugar.

David: All right, look, if you guys want to make out, would you do it someplace else? Those security apes are still after us, remember?

Krystal: That's true.

Tad: Yeah, he's got a point. Although maybe we can pick up where we left off later on.

Krystal: I like that.

Tad: Mm-hmm. Come on, Hayward. You wouldn't want to get mistaken for a patient -- delusions of humanity and all that.

David: Hmm. Better get out while you can, Tad.

Krystal: David, what are you up to?

David: I have some unfinished business.

Anita: Zach and Maria were really a couple?

Aidan: She was Maureen, and she had no memory of Edmund when she met Zach in the desert.

Anita: So she was with him before she was --

Aidan: She was with me? Yeah, that's right.

Anita: I mean, Zach and Maria, this whole time, and no word. I mean -- I told her everything about Bobby and me -- all our problems. I mean, she was right there, holding my hand. I mean, why not just tell me?

Aidan: Maybe she wanted to protect you.

Anita: Isn't she the one that needs protecting?

Aidan: I think she thinks she can take care of herself.

Anita: Oh, my God, Edmund. Does he know about Zach and Maria?

Aidan: Yeah, he does, but according to Edmund, what they had is in the past.

Anita: Well, that's good.

Aidan: Well, you don't buy it?

Anita: No, it's -- it's the way that Maria said Zach's name. I mean, I felt like I walked into something private and there was a connection. She was just so emotional.

Aidan: Well, it has been a hard couple of days for her.

Anita: Yeah, her answer, too. She chalked it up to Ryan getting shot.

Aidan: No, Ryan is a really good friend, and he has given us all a scare.

Anita: There's more. I feel it. I mean, what do you think about this? I mean, do you think that Zach had Ryan shot, and if so, why? I mean, a business thing, a grudge?

Aidan: Look, I'm still dealing with Zach. I'm not sure whether he was involved in Ryan's shooting or not. I don't have any concrete evidence that he's done anything criminal.

Anita: You're not sure.

Aidan: Look, if you want to take care of Maria, if you want to look out for her, you have to make sure that she doesn't get involved with Slater again.

Maria: I did not sleep at all last night. I mean, not about one second. I was trying to do some work, but I couldn't because I just kept thinking about everything that happened and I kept thinking about you.

Zach: Why?

Maria: Because I started to remember all those nightmares you used to have at the casino.

Zach: That's a long time ago.

Maria: Oh, see, you did that to me then, though, too. You didn't want to talk about it then, and I -- there was one time when you were in so much pain, I could hardly even wake you up. You were -- you just kept saying over and over again that you died and that there was somebody that you'd left behind.

Zach: It was just a bad dream.

Maria: But obviously not. Now I know that it was about your choice to die as a Cambias and that the person that you left behind was Michael.

Zach: Yeah.

Maria: But you're still living that nightmare. Come on. You are -- you left him and your brother died and now you're dying to have somebody to blame this on, and then -- so we've got the game and the suspects and --

Zach: My brother was murdered.

Maria: No, your brother was killed. He was killed. And I know that that -- I know that the guilt is eating you up, because you think that maybe it was your fault. And it's not. And I know you're desperate to find some answers and some peace.

Zach: You think my hunt for Michael's real killer is just some guilt-induced illusion.

Maria: No, I think you're in a lot of pain and I think you don't know how to make it stop.

Zach: I've never been satisfied with easy answers, and something is definitely wrong here.

Maria: No, you know what? When I was -- when I was very lost and I was in the middle of my amnesia and I --

Zach: No. No, no, no, no, no. Your life, your memory was stolen from you. This is very different.

Maria: Yes, true, because you chose to give up your identity, but you're still just as lost as I am.

Zach: I know exactly where I am, Maria.

Maria: Do you? Because I see all this -- this grief and this sadness and the anger and everything, and I know you. That's not you. That's not who you are.

Zach: If this makes you feel uncomfortable, you can leave.

Maria: When I was confused and lost, you reached out to me. You even -- you gave me that compass so that I would always be able to find my way. I want to do the same for you.

Zach: Find my way back? To what, being a Cambias? That's not an option.

Maria: No, that's not at all what I'm suggesting.

Zach: Well, then what? You want to be my accomplice. Ok. Then show me my true north, get me out of the woods.

Maria: That would mean that you would eventually have to accept what happened to Michael and understand why he was killed.

Zach: I will never accept what was done to my brother.

Maria: Ok, he was not the victim, Zach. He was the predator. He attacked an innocent girl.

Zach: Not the Michael I knew.

Maria: Ok, but that's it, though, isn't it? That's what this is all about, because the Michael that you knew was loving, he was somebody who helped you, he helped you escape, he gave you this incredible gift -- your freedom. But that same Michael became a monster.

Zach: No, that's not possible.

Maria: Yes, it is. It is. And I know that it's killing you, because you're wondering if there was something that you could have done, if you could have saved him if you were here, if you could have, I don't know, given him something that he needed. I know it's hard for you to understand that the person that you loved so much could be capable of so much evil.

Zach: Enough! Last night, you kicked me out of your life. And now you're here. You want to care for me and help me?

Maria: Because you're such a force, for God's sake, Zach! You put on so much pressure.

Zach: Well, you resisted it.

Maria: Because you gave me, like, no choice. You gave me we're lovers or the door, so I chose the door.

Zach: What changed?

Maria: You, because you trusted me enough to tell me who you really are. And I understand that. I know what you're dealing with now, and I totally understand it, because I know what it's like to have all those -- the questions and the doubt and all this anger. You got nowhere to put it. There's no place to put it. And I want to help you, please, as a friend.

Zach: As a friend?

Maria: I can't love you the way that you want. But I want to help you, really. I want to help you find some peace.

Zach: I had peace with you.

Maria: That was two people who had nothing to lose but each other.

Zach: And I did lose you.

Maria: But I'm here now, and I want to help you find some real peace. Will you let me do that?

Babe: Hey, peanut! Oh. Hey! I missed you so much. I nearly wore the floors out with worry about you. And I'm not the only one. You want to know who missed you? Patches and pony and your lamby. You nearly took the stuffing right out of them. They were so lonely, I even let them sleep with me. Oh. So many people love you so much.

Jamie: That was a heck of a game of hide and seek, squirt. But it's all right now. You're back where you belong.

Babe: It's my fault, Bess. I should have been a better mom. I should have looked after you and not let anything like this happen. I'm so sorry, baby. But I promise you, you are going to have the best mama ever, a mama who's going to look after you and take care of you, make sure nothing bad ever happens to you ever again.

Babe: I have to call Bianca.

J.R.: Beverly? Beverly. You in here? You.

David: That's right. Surprised?

J.R.: Not if you're a patient.

David: I'm not the one who needs help.

J.R.: What the hell's going on here?

David: It's very simple, Junior. I'm here to treat people with mental disorders, and you are going to be first on my list.

Anita: Maria and Zach -- I never would have guessed.

Aidan: I knew it. I never should have told you.

Anita: No. I'm glad you did. You're worried that Maria might get involved with Zach again.

Aidan: No, I'm worried that anyone that gets involved with Slater�s going to get hurt.

Anita: And you want me to keep Maria away from him. But, I mean, if she didn't even tell me about him, how much can I do? Aidan, I'm scared for her.

Aidan: Now, listen, don't worry, all right? I'm going to help you, and we're going to protect Maria together.

Zach: Hmm. You want to be my friend because you pity me. No, thank you.

Maria: Oh, that's the last thing I feel for you, Zach.

Zach: Well, then what, huh? Am I the good deed of the day?

Maria: I want to help you. Why can't you accept that? I know how much you've lost with Michael and everything.

Zach: I can handle it.

Maria: Oh, really? Not so far. I just want you to know you don't have to do this alone. I'm here for you, and I understand, and I respect what you're doing. You're building this whole new life for yourself, and I want to help you. Please let me do that.

Zach: Ok. Why don't you show me? Show me how you can be my friend.

J.R.: You're not going to get away with this, Hayward! I'm going to make sure of it. You're insane!

David: Yeah? I'm not the one all trussed up like a turkey.

J.R.: Ah!

David: Comfy?

J.R.: Where is Bess? Where's my father? What did you do with them?

David: If I were you, I'd start worrying about the here and now.

J.R.: Give it up, Hayward. The Chandlers practically own this place. I survived Babe's handcuffs. I'll survive this!

David: You sure about that, huh?

J.R.: You're bluffing.

David: Hmm? Have you seen your father lately?

J.R.: Listen to me, ok? You made your point. Let me go.
