J.R.: Well, this is Bess' lucky week. She's getting to spend all kinds of time with her Uncle Stuart.

Stuart: You're the lucky one, blessed with this beautiful daughter.

J.R.: Don't I know it. Babe's dumped way too much babysitting on you. Come on, Bess. Let's let Uncle Stuart take a break and let him go home.

Stuart: No, no, I'm -- I'm not going anywhere. And I'm not leaving you here alone with this baby.

Krystal: Hey. Where'd you disappear to?

Babe: Hey. Kelly was so freaked out, I just wanted to make sure she had plenty of time with Ace just so she didn't suspect anything.

Krystal: Oh, honey, I know. Listen, I'm sorry. I tried to keep her out there, but she just caught one look at you and that baby and I couldn't stop her, and then this cop showed up and I thought if he went in, that she'd have you arrested, so I made up a story with him and got him out of there.

David: All that matters is that you got what you came for. Were you able to do that?

Krystal: Oh.

Babe: Here it is. It's proof Ace is my son.

Jamie: This is the girl I'm talking about.

Priest: Yeah -- Babe. That's a lovely smile. It's nice to see her happy. Her grief for her lost baby is just heart-rending.

Jamie: And you're sure she said she lost a boy?

Priest: Yes. Wanting to rebuild the chapel and donating the window in her baby's honor seemed to give her comfort. She's so tormented by her loss. Now, who is this adorable child? Who does she belong to?

Bianca: Hey!

Simone: Hey! You just missed the big launch.

Greenlee: We're a hit.

Simone: Enchantment's a hit. First day and the perfume is already the hottest thing on the market and it is all ours and you're just in time to celebrate --

[Phone rings]

Simone: Oh, and man the phones. Fusion, please hold. Neil, could you please get that?

Greenlee: I hate to ask, but where's Kendall? Sales are through the roof.

Simone: Yes, and this signature fragrance was her brainchild. She should be here riding it to the top.

Bianca: All right, don't worry. I think I know where my sister is.

Derek: Ok, easy, son. You don't want to hurt anybody with that. All right, freeze!

Kendall: No.

Ethan: Kendall --

Kendall: Don't shoot!

Ethan: Kendall, stay out of this!

Derek: Put it down! Now!

Ethan: Ok, I'm putting it down, ok?

Derek: Put it down slowly!

Ethan: I'm putting it down.

Derek: Get over there!

Kendall: I'm fine, I'm fine! No, please, please! Don't do this, please.

Derek: Shut up, Kendall!

Kendall: Hey, do you have to be so rough on him? Don't hurt him.

Derek: Well, excuse my lack of manners! The man had a gun pointed at me!

Officer: A loaded gun, sir.

Derek: Oh, you're making this way too easy. Get up!

Ethan: Oh, come on. This is America. Since when is it a crime to hold a gun?

Derek: Oh, there are so many answers to that question, but let me just ask you a couple. Is that your weapon, huh? Is it registered to you? Is that the one you used to shoot Lavery with? Well, until I get the answers to those questions, I'm playing it safe!

Kendall: You can't just waltz in here and make accusations and beat on Ethan!

Derek: Come on, there's not a scratch on him. I didn't even mess up his hair. Besides, I didn't come in here empty-handed. I have this.

Ethan: A search warrant.

Derek: Yeah. Did we spell your name right?

Ethan: Give the man a star.

Derek: You know what? Give me that. I should thank you. You saved me the trouble of tearing this place apart although, in this case, I would've rather not had the evidence shoved in my face.

Ethan: Well, I wasn't expecting company.

Derek: Well, obviously.

Kendall: Hey, you know what? You got what you wanted, so just please take the cuffs off and leave.

Derek: You are under arrest.

Kendall: No, you can't arrest him!

Derek: If you keep talking, you're going to get a matching set, too!

Kendall: He didn't do anything!

Derek: Try attempted murder and aggravated assault. And if you keep being smart with me, Kendall, I'll throw in simple assault and reckless endangerment.

Kendall: No, this is total abuse of power, ok? This is -- this just is wrong! It's wrong!

Ethan: Kendall! You want to help? Be a good girl and shut up, eh?

Derek: Thank you! All right. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to have an attorney present.

Kendall: He'll sue! I'll sue! This is so wrong!

Derek: And you want one present, one will be appointed for you free of charge.

Bianca: Oh, my God!

Derek: Do you understand your rights?

Priest: I seem to have upset you.

Jamie: No, it's -- it's cool. I -- it's just I mean, a little boy. Losing a kid --

Priest: Babe had her heart set on a window with a boy angel in a child's memory.

Jamie: Something no one could forget. Thank you. I appreciate your help.

Priest: Please, stay as long as you like.

Maggie: Well, I have no reception whatsoever. I hope you had better luck.

Jamie: No -- I got zilch.

Maggie: So I was right? I mean, the drawing of the stained glass window wasn't for this sad old place?

Jamie: No, all we got here is an unrenovated church. There's no stained glass in sight. Now, let's just meet up with Reggie and Dani.

Maggie: All right. Whatever you say. Come on.

David: I hope to God you're right. Please let this swab prove that Ace is your son.

Babe: I did it exactly like you said. I just -- Ace, it didn't even bother him one bit. He just kept smiling the whole time.

Krystal: Just think -- a little dab from that tyke's cheek, and he is practically home.

David: No, wait a minute. We're not past the hard part here. Buchanan is not going to be easy.

Babe: Yeah, but we're going to have proof positive on our side. He can't argue with that.

David: That doesn't mean we can rush this.

Krystal: David's right. We move too fast, step sideways, this whole thing can blow up in our faces.

Babe: There's going to be plenty of fireworks as it is. I just -- I just want to make sure that neither one of you takes any extra heat for me. Look, I'm the one that lied to Bianca and I lied to my friends and -- and I can take the fall.

Krystal: We're going to deal with all of that later.

Babe: The one thing I know for sure -- I am definitely going to give Bianca back Miranda, no matter the consequences, especially if I have my own little boy in my arms. How great would that be?

David: That's what we all want, and this is going to give us the proof we need.

Babe: No, I didn't need proof ever. All I had to do was hold Ace in my arms. Did you see him? He has these little seashell ears and they stick out just the tiniest bit. And the smile? Oh, it was like a -- oh, like a shooting star straight to my heart.

Krystal: Oh, he is one gorgeous little hunk of man. I mean, those eyes are killer. I mean -- he kind of reminded me of Jamie.

Babe: Of Jamie. You see? Jamie could totally be his daddy.

Krystal: He definitely has the same chin.

Babe: That's exactly what I was thinking.

David: Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute, ok? Look, just eyes and a strong chin is not proof positive that Martin is this kid's father.

Krystal: David, miracles are raining down all around us. Why not another one?

Babe: Why not?

David: All right.

Babe: Think about it -- it would be awesome. Jamie could be the daddy. He'd be the best dad ever and then that way, our little boy -- he'd be safe. J.R. could never, ever touch him.

David: All right, but before we crown Martin father of the year, let's take this one step at a time, shall we? Now, having Ace's DNA is a great first step. Obviously we have yours, and now what we need is a sample of J.R.'s to compare it with.

Krystal: Well, what about Jamie?

David: No, no, no, no. Let's start with J.R., ok? If he's not the father, we know who is. So can you get that?

Babe: Not a problem. I don't think J.R.'s guarding his toothbrush. I'll swipe it.

David: All right. Love the enthusiasm, but don't get too cocky with J.R., ok? If we're going to pull this off, he can't suspect a thing.

Stuart: J.R., you remember a while ago when I was talking to you in the nursery and I was worried about you? You remember? And I was worried that you were becoming more and more like Adam, and you swore that I was wrong, and I hoped I was. But I used to look in your eyes and see Dixie. Now all I see is Adam.

J.R.: Maybe I've changed. But what do you expect? Babe's done this to me. She broke my heart, Uncle Stuart. I thought it was the love of my life. She tricked me, though. Turns out that she's just a liar and a cheat.

Stuart: Do you really believe that?

J.R.: Babe is bad enough -- her father's worse. Hayward has done something really messed up to Dad. I mean, I can't let them get away with everything. I have to make them pay.

Stuart: A year ago, you wouldn't have said that.

J.R.: Well, I'm tougher now, and I'm only that way because I have to protect myself, my baby -- my family.

Stuart: By getting even? By hurting back? I know a lot of people that have been hurt, J.R., and they didn't hurt back and they didn't try to get even. They just forgave and moved on. And there was a time when that's what you would've done. And I'm hoping that you can do this for us, for me, for Dixie, and for little Bess. Please try to find it in your heart to forgive Babe. Start over.

Krystal: Once we get that baby home, we're going to spoil him rotten.

David: Hey, we're not passing out lollipops yet, are we?

Babe: Maybe. We'll have to teach him our deep and personal truth -- we deserve the best, and together we can always get it.

[Babe and Krystal chuckle]

Krystal: What a coinkidink.

Reggie: Yeah, what are the chances?

Danielle: Not enough diners back in Pine Valley?

Babe: Yeah.

Jamie: Babe, can I talk to you?

Babe: You know, I've really got to get home.

Jamie: This won't take long.

Babe: All right.

Singer: Work the room from both ends so good

Maggie: Cuz. Look so snazzy. But, you know, you guys are really dressed up for burgers and fries, so what brings you all the way out to Llanview?

Babe: So, what are you doing? You following me?

Jamie: Just hanging, got bored -- here we are. How about you?

Babe: So what did you want to talk about?

Jamie: How's Bess?

Babe: Great. Sleeping. She's with Uncle Stuart unless -- did something happen? Is that why you're here?

Jamie: No, nothing like that.

Babe: Jamie, why'd you do that? You scared me.

Jamie: You left her right where she should be. Right?

Babe: Are you mad at me or something?

Jamie: For what?

Babe: This is about the other night, isn't it? About me going back with J.R. and telling you to butt out. Look, Jamie, I know that came off harsher than I meant for it to do, and I'm -- I'm sorry about that. I know that you -- you just care for me, and you're worried, and I appreciate it, but I really do have my own reasons for doing all this.

Jamie: Yeah, I'm having a real hard time understanding a lot of your choices.

Babe: Believe me, you're not the only one. But everything I do, it's -- it's for my child.

Jamie: Bess.

Babe: Yeah. Bess.

Jamie: What about Bianca?

Babe: What about Bianca?

Jamie: She's your best friend, right?

Babe: You know she's my best friend. What's going on with you? Jamie, if you have something to ask me, just come out and say it.

Bianca: What happened? What did you do?

Ethan: Claim to be a Cambias, owned a gun, shot Ryan Lavery, murdered Tupac, staged Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction -- shall I go on?

Derek: Is there more?

Ethan: So Lavery would have you believe.

Derek: What's that supposed to mean?

Ethan: It means I'm British, ok, not naive. Lavery's probably got this whole department in his back pocket.

Derek: Boy, you watch your step.

Ethan: Well, it would certainly explain why the only evidence that could help me prove who I am was missing from my uncle's police files. Lavery wanted it disappeared.

Derek: Well, you know what? You'll have plenty of time to chew on that conspiracy theory after we get you booked. Come on.

Kendall: Ethan, be careful. Don't fight him.

Derek: You know what? If this guy is a Cambias, Kendall, you shouldn't even be talking to him! And if he's not, he's scamming you! Either way, it's not good!

Ethan: Well, there we have it, then. We might as well just throw me away and leave the key.

Derek: Shut up! Let's go!

Kendall: Ethan, don't worry. Listen to me -- like I said, I promise you I will help you. God, I got to help. Oh. Jeez. God, I got to help him.

Bianca: Kendall, no, no. Kendall, you're not going anywhere.

Greenlee: What was that for?

Simone: Oh, your own little bit of Enchantment. I could use some myself. Hmm. Is this stuff guaranteed to attract men? Because I want to smell irresistible.

Greenlee: Well, that smell's been working for me.

Simone: Well, I hope it unleashes my inner power, because my own personal mojo has really taken a dive lately. Let's go again. Enchantment, begin because I am so ready to be lucky in love.

Greenlee: And there's a whole lot of love going on.

Simone: Do you know, we've already hit our million-dollar target, and we haven't even heard from the West Coast stores yet?

Greenlee: No wonder the press has been hounding Ryan.

Simone: In the hospital?

Greenlee: Total sellout of the first Fusion/Enchantment merger product. We're headlines and they want to talk to the boss.

Simone: Well, should you even be here? I mean, shouldn't you be with Ryan at the hospital?

Greenlee: Well, I tried to stay at the hospital, but Ryan kicked me out -- to deal with the launch.

Simone: Oh. I smell good. I'm ready to launch, right into Jonathan. Yeah, when he gets a whiff of me, he's going to be totally at my mercy. At the very least, he'll want to buy me drinks. Where is he anyways, and where in the heck is Kendall? I mean, as wack as she is, she was absolutely brilliant the way she marketed this perfume campaign. I'm sorry. You know what? I won't even bring her up.

Greenlee: Kendall's the only stinky thing about this deal, but I'll live with it, and her.

Simone: You see, right there --

Greenlee: What?

Simone: Today you're being nice. You're, like, "real" -- not "wanting something" nice.

Greenlee: Thanks. I think.

Simone: You're welcome. But, you know, the thing is, is that it's not because you're having a good hair day or because sales are phenomenal or Ryan's ok. It's something else, isn't it? What is it? Why are you so extra-special happy?

Bianca: What crazy game are you playing now?

Kendall: I'm not playing any game. I'm trying to help Ethan.

Bianca: Why, because you slept with him? Because you're still trying to get back at Ryan?

Kendall: No, I didn't sleep with Ethan and, Bianca, I'm over trying to get back at Ryan. Ethan and I stayed up all night and we talked, that's it.

Bianca: You talked?

Kendall: Yes! I have been up for days worrying about Ryan. I -- I fell asleep here and I woke up late, so I took a shower and I borrowed his shirt. Bianca, the only thing I aroused was his anger.

Bianca: Oh, is that when he took out his rifle?

Kendall: No, I told you that's not what this is about. He was -- he was cleaning his gun, and the police showed up at a bad time.

Bianca: Bad for whom?

Kendall: I -- I have to go the station.

Bianca: Kendall, stop!

Kendall: I have to get him a lawyer!

Bianca: Ethan had a rifle! What if he did shoot Ryan? He was there that night. He had a reason to do it, no alibi, right?

Kendall: Ok, so you're just going to bail on him?

Bianca: I'm just saying let's hold off a little before we help him, until we're sure.

Kendall: I am sure. But, so -- so you see him with a gun and then that's it? He goes from good guy to wannabe assassin overnight?

Bianca: Michael had you fooled, too.

Kendall: No, don't even -- don't compare Ethan to that monster.

Bianca: Oh, Kendall, if he did shoot Ryan, we have to face facts here. We have to face who he is, what he is.

Kendall: And then cut him loose?

Bianca: Yeah!

Kendall: You know, I promise you, Bianca, Ethan will not turn into Michael. I won't let him.

Bianca: Kendall, do you hear yourself? Didn't you learn anything from what happened to Ryan? You can't make Ethan who you want him to be any more than you could make Ryan fall back in love with you.

J.R.: How can I forgive somebody that I don't trust? Her secret marriage, her sleeping with Jamie.

Stuart: Yeah, that -- well, that was -- that was a mistake. I know. I know how much she loves you and how much you love her. That's -- that's enough to make it work. But instead, you're working even harder at hating her.

J.R.: Uncle Stuart, you've always been the person that I could talk to, that I could come to, even more so than my dad, the one who supported me and believed in me.

Stuart: And I want to believe in you now.

J.R.: But you don't. Do you remember when I came to you for advice right after Babe got pregnant? And I was all freaked out, but you said, "You're going to make the best father ever."

Stuart: Yeah, right, and you said if you ever needed some advice on how to be a good father, that you'd come to me. Well, you're here. The way to be a great father is just to do what's best for the child.

J.R.: Right, and all I care about is Bess.

Stuart: Hiding Bess from Babe wasn't right.

J.R.: Babe lied to me.

Stuart: She shouldn't have lied, but I know how much she loves you and how much she loves this baby, and she only lied -- she shouldn't have lied, but she did it to protect your feelings.

J.R.: And I can't believe that you're doing this. You're taking Babe's side over your own flesh and blood.

Stuart: Well, Bess is my flesh and blood, too. And I will always stand by her, even if it means testifying in court.

J.R.: What?

Stuart: I am ready to stand up in court and testify that I believe that Bess belongs with her mother.

Jamie: Seen Paul Cramer lately?

Babe: Paul Cramer? Where the heck did that come from?

Jamie: You've been hanging out in Llanview, Paul's hood -- makes sense. You guys pals again?

Babe: Is that what this is about? You think I'm back with Paul? Oh. Believe me, no way, no how would I spend time with that skeeve.

Jamie: You said that about J.R.

Babe: Look, David had this Heart Benefit thing and -- and Mama and I, we don't pass up a chance to get all ritzed up. You know us. I swear to you, no way do I want to see Paul. I hate the guy.

Jamie: Because he's the reason Bianca lost her baby?

Babe: If it weren't for Paul, Miranda would be with Bianca right now.

Jamie: You know, I don't know what it's like to lose a kid, but I sure wish I could make Bianca hurt a little less. And you're her best friend. I'm sure if there was a way to take the pain away, you'd do it. But it's impossible, right? The only way to do that would be to bring Miranda back.

Babe: Look, Jamie, if it was possible to bring Miranda back to Bianca, hand to God, I -- I would do what I could. I would make it happen.

Krystal: Babe? We better go. Come on.

Babe: Ok. I've got to -- I got to get back to Bess. I hate being away from her this long.

Jamie: Just do what's right for her.

Singer: One look at you and I knew I could hear right in this time I try to find finally free

Maggie: So what's the scoop on Babe? Did you get anything out of her?

Jamie: Yeah -- a whole lot of nothing. Let's just forget about it.

Reggie: You're kidding, right?

Jamie: No, it's a total bust. No more trying to figure out why Babe is staying with J.R. and what the big secret is. It's her business. I'm out of it. We all are.

J.R.: Our family is under attack. If it's not Babe and her lies, it's Krystal and her explosives, their -- her mad doctor daddy. I mean, how can you stand there and do nothing when Hayward is claiming that he has your brother caged like an animal?

Stuart: Adam's always been able to take care of himself.

J.R.: No, no, no, not this time. Hayward has bubble-wrapped him and sent him off to God knows where. Don't you even care? He's been gone for weeks. I can't even sleep because I'm so crazed.

Stuart: Are you as crazed as Babe was when you hid Bess from her?

J.R.: I took Bess with her nanny. I put them someplace safe out of love.

Stuart: To a psychiatric hospital? That's not love. That's Adam!

J.R.: I -- I'm protecting my -- my daughter! Hayward is committing a crime! Babe's not trying to stop him. Do you really, really want Bess growing up in a family like that?

Stuart: David is not a nice man!

J.R.: Yeah, I know.

Stuart: But you -- you can't blame Babe for everything that David does --

[Baby cries]

Stuart: Any more than people can blame you for what Adam does. Oh, come here. Yeah.

J.R.: So that's it?

Stuart: Ok.

J.R.: That's it? You don't care what happens to your brother?

Stuart: Of course I care. But knowing Adam, he probably asked for it. Ok, ok. Come on. Ok, ok. Oh, don't cry.

Kendall: I did learn from my experience with Ryan. I know where I am now. I've lost Ryan and I accept that.

Bianca: I've heard you say that before, Kendall, and then you've gone off and done something crazy and self-destructive.

Kendall: Well, that's over.

Bianca: I really want to believe you. I really do, but honestly, Kendall, why is this time any different from any other?

Kendall: Because I was with -- I was with Ryan in the hospital when he woke up, and I've never been so thrilled to hear someone tell me to get lost.

Bianca: And did you -- get lost? No, of course you didn't.

Kendall: Well, I tried to explain to him what happened, and I wanted to tell him how sorry I was, but he didn't care. He just -- he wanted Greenlee. And when she walked in, the way that they looked at each other and held each other, it was love. That's when I knew that my time with Ryan was over.

Bianca: So is Ethan next?

Kendall: No, I told you that's not what this is about. I know where Ethan is, and if I can help him be smarter than I was or if I can help him make better choices than I did, then maybe -- maybe somehow I can give him the hope I never had.

Bianca: And what if it turns out that Ethan did shoot Ryan? What then?

Kendall: Well, then, even more reason to be on his side.

Bianca: I don't know how you can say that.

Kendall: Listen to me. I was with Ethan that night. Ok? I know what he was thinking, I know how he felt, his anger. And if he did try to shoot Ryan, then maybe I can stop him from trying again.

Bianca: You think you can talk him down?

Kendall: I'll try.

[Bianca sighs]

Bianca: You know, Kendall, I wanted so much for there to be a good Cambias for Miranda’s sake. But maybe I was trying to save somebody who can't be saved.

Kendall: Wait, how are you -- how are going to save Ethan?

Bianca: I might have something that could prove that Ethan is a Cambias. It's the top that I wore the night Miranda was born. There could be some trace of something --

Kendall: Oh, my God, Bianca, that's perfect. That's fantastic. That's exactly what we need. You have to give it to him. This could be the help and the proof that Ethan needs.

Danielle: You're backing off?

Maggie: What did Babe say to make you change your mind?

Jamie: Let's just drop it.

Reggie: Wait, let me get this straight -- that's it? All of our time, all of the effort, for nothing? You're just going to quit just like that?

Jamie: Well, I mean, what'd it get us?

Reggie: A knife in the gut, you kept on going. Babe looks at you sideways, and you're ready to quit?

Maggie: Hey, are you sure she didn't give you any heat?

Jamie: I -- you know what? I just realized I got us into a big waste of time, and Babe wants to stay with J.R. We'll just file it under "Unsolved Mysteries" and move on.

Danielle: Well, we're all done here, then. Anybody hungry?

Reggie: All right, just get a ride back to Pine Valley with Maggie. I have to talk to Jamie.

Danielle: Why don't you just sit at another booth?

Reggie: Because it's important.

Danielle: Fine. BJ's has better food anyway.

Maggie: Look, just go easy on him, all right? Maybe -- maybe he's just better off without the Babe drama, ok?

Singer: Back to your past this lonely fool

Reggie: Ok. You can drop this little act. It's just us.

Jamie: What makes you think I'm not on the level?

Reggie: You look like you've been gutted alive. What really went down with Babe?

Jamie: You wouldn't believe it if I told you.

David: All right. Look, let's get this over quickly, ok? You go upstairs, get J.R.'s toothbrush. I'll wait right here.

Krystal: The less time mingling with that son of slime, the better. Babe, honey, what is wrong?

Babe: I'm just really worried about Jamie.

David: I'm more worried about J.R.

Babe: Well, it's just that he wasn't acting like himself. He was all quiet and -- and closed off as -- I don't know. It's not that I blame him or anything, because he's been absolutely wonderful to me and I've been such a jerk.

Krystal: Oh.

Babe: Look, he -- he's always been there for me. Maybe he could help us or something.

David: Forget it, Babe.

Babe: Why not? I feel like he suspected something anyway.

Krystal: No, listen, I'm with David. That is just way too risky.

Babe: But if Jamie is Ace's daddy, don't you think he has a right to know?

David: We don't even have proof that he's yours yet.

Krystal: No, we are going to stick to this plan. This is going to stay right here with us. Nobody can know the real reason why you're going to Llanview.

Simone: Oh, you and Ryan? Oh, that -- oh -- is so romantic. I mean, that's -- that's like a real-life fairy tale.

Greenlee: Hmm. Complete with a wicked witch and a troll or two.

Simone: Oh. Trolls are all that's been attracted to me since Tad. Hey! You know, what if it runs in the family? I mean, Jonathan could marry me as friends. You know, we could have a long honeymoon, a couple of shared, long showers, and it would be love. Well, a girl can dream, can't she?

Greenlee: I almost gave up on dreaming. After Leo died, I never thought I'd find anyone again.

Simone: And then when you found it -- bam, Ryan gets shot. Talk about reeking bad luck. You must have been a wreck. I mean, to almost lose your second-chance love? Oh, my gosh. Exactly when you get him right where you want him. I can't even imagine. I -- I'm sorry. That's so insensitive. I am so happy for you and Ryan. I -- oh, my God! That's so exciting! No one deserves this like you guys.

Greenlee: I was so scared when I thought Ryan might die.

Simone: Oh, yeah.

Greenlee: It just makes me want to hold on to him and what we have that much more.

Simone: Of course.

Greenlee: I'm afraid that if I relax --

Simone: What?

Greenlee: Nothing.

Simone: No, no. What -- what are you afraid of?

Greenlee: Well, they still haven't found who shot Ryan. And until they do, he could be shot again. The next time, he might not be so lucky.

Kendall: Bianca, you have to give your shirt to Ethan. It could -- it could save his life. It could be his life.

Bianca: I'm not going to give up the one thing that I have left of Miranda to help a man who tried to kill Ryan.

Kendall: Wait a minute. You -- wait, you're going to -- you're going to play God, deny him his birthright? I mean, no matter what's happened, Ethan has a right to know who he is.

Bianca: All right, fine. Once it's proven that Ethan didn't shoot Ryan, I will happily help him prove he's a Cambias -- or not.

Kendall: Oh, ok -- a reward for good behavior?

Bianca: Kendall, Ethan had a reason to shoot Ryan. He was there that night, he owns a high-powered rifle. I can't believe you're willing to ignore all that.

Kendall: No, I'm not. Ok? But I'm not going to write him off, either. I hope to God that Ethan didn't shoot Ryan, but if he did, I can't just bail on him. I can't, I won't, not when I was so close to shooting Ryan myself that night.

Bianca: But you didn't.

Kendall: Yes, but I understand where Ethan's head was at, and I can help him.

Bianca: Or get in even deeper. Kendall, please, just do me a favor -- don't go to the police station. Come with me to Fusion. Do you remember Enchantment, the launch, today? Your perfume -- it's a sellout.

Kendall: Oh, my God. I -- I totally forgot about the launch.

Bianca: All right, so -- so come, celebrate.

Kendall: No, perfume has a hell of a shelf life. Ethan doesn't.

[Bianca sighs]

Bianca: You're so stubborn. I just -- I don't want you to get hurt again.

Kendall: Just the opposite's going to happen.

Bianca: All right, fine, I'll cover for you at Fusion. Just do me a favor -- please promise me that you'll keep an open mind about Ethan.

Kendall: I listened, didn't I?

Bianca: Like you listened to me and Mom that night when we were trying to tell you to leave Ryan and Greenlee alone? Did that work? No, not until Ryan woke up in a hospital room. Please, Kendall, don't let the same thing happen to you and Ethan.

Babe: Fine. Fine, I'll -- I'll keep quiet, but I can't stand all this waiting. How long is this going to --

David: Anything we can do for you, J.R.?

J.R.: Not unless you're going to pack up Babe. What's all this fuss about Llanview? Go ahead, make my day, Babe. Are you back with your ex? Because a loser like Paul Cramer and you make a perfect couple.

Babe: Please. I'd rather jump out of a window.

Krystal: You know what? Babe, it's getting late. Why don't you just get that thing for David?

Babe: Right. I'll be right back.

David: So, are you surprised to see me out and about? Nice try siccing Derek on me.

J.R.: Well, if Frye wasn't so incompetent, you would be behind bars.

Krystal: Oh, you know, it is such a shame when good money can't pay off the cops, isn't it?

J.R.: Ah, gloat all you want, but when I get my dad home, you will go down for this.

David: And who said your dad is ever coming home?

Jamie: Ok, it's like total "X-Files" -- I don't know what's real, what isn't, who is, who isn't. People I thought I could trust, I can't. They say one thing, they do something else. I'm being played so many different ways, I'm going dizzy.

Reggie: Ok, you're making me dizzy. Slow down. All right? Take a deep breath. This is all because Babe went back to J.R.?

Jamie: That doesn't begin to scratch the surface. If you knew half the stuff that's going on --

Reggie: Jamie, I don't want to know, all right? It's all in your face. Babe blew your heart out of your chest. Personally, I still think you've got it bad for the girl, but Maggie’s right -- you need to stop getting mixed up in all her drama.

Jamie: But I already am.

Reggie: All right, so just quit! Babe is addicted to trouble, all right? She has so many chances to walk away, but she keeps coming back for more. You nearly died trying to help that girl. If she doesn't realize that, then you don't need her. Forget about her. You need to start doing what's right for you, not everybody else.

Jamie: You know what? You're absolutely right.

[Keys rattle]

[Cell door closes]

Derek: You have a visitor. Ten minutes.

Kendall: I know I told you it doesn't matter, but it does.

Ethan: You held out longer than I expected. But time's up. You want to know if I shot Ryan.

Kendall: Did you?

Ethan: If I tell you I didn't shoot Ryan, would you believe me? And if you did believe me, do you really think you could help?

Kendall: Yes, I'm sure of it.

Ethan: What if I confess that I did shoot him? What then? Would you still be so willing to give me a hand?

Kendall: I need to know the truth, Ethan.

Ethan: The truth is that this town has already made up its mind, so it really doesn't matter what I say.

Kendall: It matters to me.

Ethan: Because you want to save me? It's a lovely thought, really, Kendall, but it's turning out a little trickier than you think, isn't it? If I were you, I'd revisit those charmingly good intentions and reconsider.

Simone: Where the heck is Kendall? She is missing all of this fun.

Bianca: Oh, Kendall wishes that she could be here, but something came up.

Greenlee: I've got to check in with Accounting. Could you put these labels on the boxes in the hall waiting to be shipped?

[Phone rings]

Bianca: Sure.

Simone: Fusion. Sure. You know what? Let me hook you up with Distributing. Ok, I'm putting you on hold. Oh, I'm an enchantress.

Bianca: Hey.

Jamie: I talked to Babe.

Bianca: And? Do you know why she's with Kevin Buchanan? Jamie, come on. You know something -- I can tell. Why did Babe say that she has a son?

J.R.: You hurt one hair on my father's dead, and you will burn.

David: Isn't it funny that your first concern would be for his hair?

Krystal: Good one.

Babe: Here you go.

David: Thanks, Babe. I'll be in touch. Oh, Junior -- if you get lonely, just think of your daddy, close your eyes, and imagine him snug as a bug in his own little roach motel.

J.R.: Have your fun. I'm sending you to hell for hurting my father.

Adam: No, son. Allow me.

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

Liza: Tad, help me.

Tad: This is your call.

Maria: It's almost like you're waiting for Michael to come back.

Zach: He did.

Babe: Stay away from my dad.

David: It's all right, Babe. I can handle the father/son tag team.

Jamie: I found plans for a stained-glass window for a child that died. It's Babe's window.
