Greenlee: No, Ryan, we can't do it.
Ryan: This is our honeymoon. We have to do it.
Greenlee: You just got shot. You could pop a stitch.
Ryan: I didn't fly my beautiful wife to a private island in the Caribbean to break tradition.
Greenlee: You really want to do it?
Ryan: Yes, I really want to do it.
Greenlee: Well, how about we compromise?
Ryan: Fine, as long as we do it together. You ready?
Ryan: You realize when I can, I'm going to do it right. I'm going to carry you over the threshold.
Greenlee: It is right. It's perfect. You're here. You're safe. We finally get to start our life together. A brass band and fireworks couldn't make this any better.
Ryan: You -- are you sure about the fireworks?
Kendall: You had it right in front of you, close enough to touch. You walked away. Ethan, what you just did for Bianca was beyond wonderful.
Ethan: Well, I'm all that, aren't I, Kendall? I just killed my only chance of finding out who the hell I am.
Kendall: Well, I know it couldn't have been easy.
Ethan: It was the hardest thing I ever did. And quite possibly the stupidest.
Reggie: You know, Kendall�s in the clear, Ryan�s going to live, so you need to just chill.
Danielle: Yeah, all you need to do is kick back.
Reggie: No stress, no drama, no worries, right?
Maggie: Hi, guys.
Jamie: What did you do to Babe?
J.R.: Get out of here!
Jamie: You all right? Did he hurt you?
J.R.: Come on, man, I didn't touch her.
Jamie: Yeah, if you did --
J.R.: What, huh? What? You going to beat me up in front of my daughter? That's exactly the kind of crud I�m trying to protect Bess from.
Babe: Bess doesn't need to be protected from Jamie.
Jamie: She's safe, so get out.
J.R.: Um, in case you hadn't noticed, my house, my wife, and my baby.
Jamie: Or not.
J.R.: What the hell's that supposed to mean?
Jamie: Babe, what are the chances that your baby is mine?
J.R.: Yeah, you'd like that, wouldn't you? Baby makes three? It's a sweet thought, but you really need to grow up. You see, blood trumps fairy tales every time. We had the tests done. Bess is mine. Isn't that right, Babe?
Babe: Know what, just get out of here.
Jamie: You heard her.
J.R.: I'm not leaving without my baby.
Babe: She likes the fairy tale, the one with the princess --
J.R.: Yeah, I know what my baby likes. And you two? Pathetic. I mean, so pathetic, really.
Jamie: So what are the chances your baby is mine?
Babe: It's a really good thing that you showed up when you did because another couple more minutes, J.R. probably would've knocked the door down or something. It was like he was raging or something.
Jamie: Babe, Babe, J.R.�s convinced he's the dad, but you know I�m right, don't you? We might have a child together.
Bianca: Maggie, Jonathan, hi. Ah, well, once again, my timing stinks.
Reggie: Oh, well, you know, a table just opened up over there. We need to jump on that, get this party started.
Jonathan: Don't, don't.
Danielle: We don't want to interrupt anything.
Jonathan: Bianca, you and I have -- we've had a very rough start, but my brother adores you. So does Maggie. And to be honest, I'd like to try again.
Reggie: We don't move on that table, somebody's going to take it.
Jonathan: So that's even more reason for you guys to join us. I mean, we can make a party of it. Is -- is that ok?
Bianca: Well, then why not? Um, I'm sorry. Jonathan Lavery, Reggie Montgomery.
Reggie: How you doing, man?
Bianca: Danielle Frye.
Danielle: Hi. You're as cute as your brother.
Reggie: Yeah. Let's just sit down, ok?
Jonathan: Yeah, this place is great, huh?
Bianca: Yeah. Fun.
Jonathan: I -- I really appreciate the second chance. I was a maniac at the police station, and -- and I�m sorry for that. I had no reason to go off on you the way I did, and to slam Kendall -- I�m very sorry. I just -- I know how much you love your sister.
Bianca: As much as you love your brother.
Jonathan: Ryan getting shot -- it's put me over the edge.
Bianca: Well, I think everyone was freaked. But fortunately, Ryan is doing better, and Ethan�s off the hook.
Jonathan: He was released from jail.
Bianca: Because he's innocent.
Jonathan: Not necessarily.
Bianca: You still think that Ethan shot Ryan. You don't even know him.
Jonathan: I know all I need to know.
Bianca: Look, I get that you're looking for someone to blame for Ryan�s shooting, but you got the wrong guy, and I have proof.
Kendall: It's not too late. Bianca completely understands how important it is for you to confirm you're a Cambias. That's why she offered you the shirt to be tested. Miranda's DNA would settle everything.
Ethan: I won't take advantage.
Kendall: Accepting someone's help is hardly taking advantage.
Ethan: That piece of material is all that Bianca has left of her daughter.
Kendall: If you're a Cambias, you can be a living, breathing connection to Miranda.
Ethan: What if I'm not, huh? Look, trust me, Kendall, I wanted to take that piece of material, run straight down to the lab, and have them cut it into pieces so that I could finally get some answers. But if I did that, I�d be no better than my grandfather -- take what I want and screw everybody else.
Kendall: You have a legitimate reason.
Ethan: Old Alexander thought he did, too, when he carted my mother off to nowhere. Bianca offered me the last bit of her daughter. It got me thinking about her again.
Kendall: About your birth mother? Why?
Ethan: I was just wondering if -- if when she left me, she kept something to remember me by.
Kendall: Well, she must have. I mean, Hannah only gave you away to protect you from Grandpa Cambias. It must have ripped her heart out to leave you.
Ethan: I -- I tried to track her down, but nothing, you know? You know, I can only assume that she's -- you know, you get -- I can only assume that she's dead.
Kendall: All right. That's it.
Ethan: What are you doing?
Kendall: Well, I'm getting you out of here. You're ready to detonate. I've been there. I know the signs.
Ethan: What do I do?
Kendall: You trust me.
Greenlee: This is Mrs. Lavery.
[Romantic music plays]
Greenlee: I'd like a bottle of your best champagne, strawberries dipped in chocolate -- dark chocolate -- and then some, um -- never -- never mind, that's enough. You're amazing.
Ryan: Well, that's only because of you. I'm serious. Hey, I want tonight to be -- to be as special for you as it is for me.
Greenlee: You're all the special I need.
Ryan: Well, but you, me, and candlelight, not to be missed.
Greenlee: I'll be right back.
Ryan: Where you going?
Greenlee: A surprise a day, remember?
Babe: Look, I don't know where you got the idea that you could be the father.
Jamie: Paul Cramer.
Babe: You -- you talked to Paul and he said this?
Jamie: No, but I found out that he delivered the paternity test results. The little piece of paper that said J.R. was the dad was in Cramer�s hot little hands.
Babe: How did you find that out?
Jamie: Does it matter? He had access. That's all it takes. And knowing what we know about Cramer --
Babe: You never give up, do you?
Babe: You're right. Paul could've fiddled with the test results. But if he did, it's because I asked him to. Look, Jamie, it was a long time ago. It was like a whole different planet when we did that test. All I really wanted at the time --
Jamie: Was J.R. You loved him. You wanted a life with him. You wanted the baby to be his, so you asked Paul to help you.
Babe: I convinced him to fix the test if it needed it.
Jamie: And he delivered. J.R. is the proud papa. The question is, was it for real?
Babe: Paul said that the test didn't even need fixing, that J.R.�s the father.
Jamie: Do you believe him?
Babe: Paul's -- his word isn't even worth spit. I -- I don't know if the baby is J.R.�s or if it's yours.
Jamie: Why are you telling me this now? Is it because you're facing the custody battle with J.R.? It'll go away if I�m the father?
Babe: I'm telling you this because I don't want to lie to you anymore. Jamie, I�ve done about a million things in the last year that I am not proud of. And fixing those tests -- it doesn't even come close in the top three. Look, what I did was wrong. I'm just trying to make things right.
Jamie: What does that mean?
Babe: It means that right now, David is running another test to see if you're the father. Look, I have been so horrible to you over the past year. I -- I wouldn't even blame you if you wanted to throw me out that window.
Jamie: Babe -- I hope Paul lied. I hope I�m the father.
Babe: You mean that?
Jamie: I wouldn't have said it if I didn't.
Babe: I've prayed my hardest that you're the father. And I'm not just saying that because I want to ruin J.R.�s chances at custody. I just want you to know that -- that there's absolutely nobody in this world that I think would be a better father to my baby than you.
Ryan: Hey, how you doing in there with my surprise? You ok?
Greenlee: Better than ok. You like it?
Ryan: You're the most astonishing woman that I have ever laid eyes on.
Greenlee: I hope you do more than lay eyes on me.
Greenlee: I feel like a real bride.
Ryan: Well, you are.
Greenlee: It's stupid. It's not like we haven't had sex before.
Ryan: Sex, yeah. But tonight, we're going to make love. Real love.
Greenlee: This is real love, isn't it?
Ryan: Mm-hmm. And nothing has ever felt better.
Greenlee: Oh, this is the beginning of a whole new life, our life.
Ryan: And I can't wait for every single day. I love you. Greenlee, I love you so much.
Singer: Ooh hey can you imagine us making love? The way it would feel the first time that we touch? Can you think of it the way I dream of it? I want you to see it like I�m seeing it
Singers: It's a picture of perfection the vision of you and I
Singer: Your lips upon my lips
Singers: Can you just picture it? Your fingertips on my fingertips your skin upon my skin would be the sweetest sin that would be the sweetest sin yeah
Singer: All night I lie awake 'cuz it's too much to take dreaming about the love that we could make all day I think of schemes to get you next to me I want you so bad that I can barely breath
Singers: It's a sign of my obsession that I can't stop thinking about your lips upon my lips can you just picture this your fingertips on my fingertips your skin upon my skin would be the sweetest sin
Singer: Would be the sweetest sin you are the sweetest sin
Singers: Your lips upon my lips can you envision it? Temptation I could never resist your skin upon my skin would be the sweetest sin
Ethan: I could definitely get used to this greasy American food.
Kendall: Good. Well, I hope you carbo-loaded because it is time to warm up. Heads up! All right, this is going to be a little harder than I thought.
Ethan: This is it? This is the someplace special you were telling me about? A rectangular of tar, a pole, and a net?
Kendall: It's called basketball.
Ethan: And we're here because?
Kendall: Because you need this! Complete and utter concentration on something other than your miserable life.
Ethan: What exactly did you have in mind?
Kendall: Hand-eye coordination and the thrill of victory. Yes, give me that, give me that, give me that. Now, I�m going to teach you one of America�s greatest pastimes.
Kendall: Yes, sirree, George. You'd better just get ready for basketball boot camp, baby! Here I come.
Ethan: And you're going to be my coach?
Kendall: Yes, I am. Watch and learn, rookie. Here I go!
Bianca: Ethan put me first, even though that shirt could've been his one chance to find out who he really is. I mean, anybody who would do -- I mean, he may be the real deal after all.
Jonathan: When I�m wrong, I can admit it.
Reggie: Um, why don't we go hit the dance floor?
Singer: Things never happen when you want them to they only happen when you least expect them to
Jonathan: I'm going to -- I'm going to go get some magopolitans.
Singer: Try to imagine who I could be I can't believe it's true
Maggie: You know, I think the more you get to know him, you're really going to like him.
Bianca: Well, you know, it seems like he's doing everything he can to be a perfect gentleman.
Maggie: You know, I'm sorry what -- you know, with what happened with us before. You were just trying to be a friend. But, you know, it seems like ever since I told you I loved you, the friend thing has really kind of tanked.
Bianca: Well, things have been really complicated.
Maggie: Not things, Bianca, us. Come. Sit. You know that I'll always love you. I mean, that's a done deal. But as for the other part, I'm over it.
Bianca: Wait, you mean the gay part?
Maggie: Do you know what I want more than anything? I want us to just go back to the way that things were, best friends, easy, simple. You can be with Lena and I can be with Jonathan. What do you say?
Bianca: Well, I say we're always going to be best friends.
Jonathan: So here you go. Berry smoothie, right? And a magopolitan.
Maggie: Oh, hmm. Thank you.
Jonathan: You're welcome. And one for the guy.
Maggie: Oh, isn't he the best?
Jamie: Did you mean what you said?
Babe: About wanting you to be the father?
Jamie: About not wanting to lie to me?
Babe: I've never meant anything more.
Jamie: Then be honest with me, Babe -- about everything.
Babe: You've already put up with so much.
Jamie: I can take more, Babe. I can handle it. I can help you. Please, tell me.
Krystal: Oh, there you are. Look, I'm sorry to interrupt, but I need to talk to Babe for a minute. Do you mind, sweetie?
Jamie: I'll stick around downstairs.
Babe: All right. What is it, Mama? Is it the test results?
Krystal: It's what we hoped for. Ace is yours.
Babe: I knew it all along. I knew it in my heart, but to hear you say those words -- oh, my God, Mama!
Krystal: We got our miracle.
Babe: Half of it, anyway. Do we know who the father is?
Krystal: They're still running those tests, and David said he'd call us as soon as he found out.
Babe: Oh, God. Please, Lord, please just let it be Jamie.
Krystal: I know, I put the same word in his ear, honey, but we have to be prepared for the worst.
Babe: No. No. No. It's got to be Jamie. It will. And if it is, I'm going to tell him tonight.
Krystal: Now, you might want to put the brakes on, Babe.
Babe: No, Mama, no. No more secrets, no more lies -- nothing. If Jamie is ace's father, he deserves the right to know. And I am going to tell him that he's the father of my baby. Except that our baby isn't Bess. It's Ace Buchanan.
J.R.: Do you see the little monkey in there, with all the funny little hats? You like that, don't you? I'll get you hats. I'll get you all sorts of hats, huh? And maybe a monkey, too, huh? Yeah. Well. Prince Charming pulled himself away. Or did you get kicked out?
Jamie: You know what, if Babe�s looking for me, I'll be on the terrace.
J.R.: No, why don't you stay here. We can compare notes on my wife.
Jamie: Don't you ever get sick of making the same old cracks?
J.R.: Hmm -- not yet. But don't worry, it'll be over pretty soon. You and Babe will be together. And this time, you can have my blessing. I may even spring for a wedding gift -- the trailer of your dreams, a double wide. Oh, but you know what, we'd better get one with a back door because Babe�s going to need to hustle all her men friends in and out.
Jamie: You know, you're lucky you're holding Bess.
J.R.: Oh, don't get your muscles all in a bunch. Bess has already seen enough drama for today.
Jamie: Like you trying to kick in the nursery door?
J.R.: You know, you're not a dad and I don't expect you to understand, but the clichés are true -- Bess is my everything and the center of everything that I do. So be warned -- nothing will ever separate me from Bess.
Bianca: Hey. Nice workout there, Reggie.
Maggie: Yeah, very good job!
Bianca: Yeah, and it's almost as good as you sing.
Reggie: Oh, that's messed up, but thank you anyway. Thank you, thank you. Oh, I'm starving.
Jonathan: You know, something's been bugging me about Ethan and your shirt.
Maggie: Jonathan, let's --
Bianca: No, no, Maggie, it's ok. What is it?
Jonathan: Ok. Ahem. What if the gesture wasn't so noble, ok? Let's just think about this for a second. If you were claiming to be somebody you weren't and somebody gave you the chance to prove your claim, you'd take it, right? Unless you didn't want to be exposed.
Reggie: Ah, because he's fronting. You know, Ethan could've turned down the shirt, because he was just being a nice guy or because he didn't want to be exposed as a fake.
Kendall: All right. Ok. You know what? Usually, I�m very -- I�m much better at this.
Ethan: Oh, I'm sure you are.
Kendall: Look, I'm a little off my game today, that's all. What's your excuse?
Ethan: Well, you know, we don't play a lot of basketball in the old country.
Kendall: Ok. Well, then I will teach you. I will show you how. Come on. All right. Now, put your arms around me.
Ethan: Ok, I'm beginning to like this.
Kendall: Well, how else you going to learn?
Ethan: All right, this good?
Kendall: Good, great.
Kendall: All right, now, just put your hands on the ball.
Ethan: You're an excellent teacher, by the way.
Kendall: Look, do you want to learn how to score or not?
Ethan: No, no. Ok, good, yes, carry on.
Kendall: Ok. Now, do you feel my knees? See there's like a little bounce in my knees?
Ethan: Ah, oh, yes.
Kendall: You feel that, you feel that?
Ethan: Yeah, mm-hmm.
Kendall: Ok. Stay with me here. All right, now, I'm going to just push off the ball, put the ball up, push off the ball, and release. It's -- it's all in the wrist.
Ethan: Wrist, right.
Kendall: Yeah, see, that's -- that's not my wrist. That's not my wrist.
Greenlee: I can't believe it. The Dynamite Kiddo and the Green Butterfly. How did we get so lucky?
Ryan: Super powers.
Ryan: And the -- the ability to fly.
Greenlee: Hmm. Most people only get one chance at happiness. We got a second chance. I want to do it right.
Ryan: Well, take it from me, so far, you're absolutely perfect.
Ryan: All we have to do is we got to -- ow -- we got to figure out how to make the magic last.
Greenlee: Huh. We could draw up a new contract.
Ryan: Like a postnup? We couldn't even get through six months of the prenup.
Greenlee: No, we could -- those were extenuating circumstances, and we could follow it to the letter.
Ryan: Ok, so what do you have in mind?
Greenlee: Hmm. Now, we promise to never go to bed angry.
Greenlee: And we'll always be straight with each other -- no secrets, no lies, no tricks.
Greenlee: We'll keep the surprise-a-day clause.
Greenlee: You'll never expect me to cook.
Ryan: Absolute deal. But you forgot about the most important thing. Come here. You got to make sure that you put in there --
Ryan: That every single day, I'm going to love you more than the day before.
Kendall: I -- I�m sorry. I can't. I can't do this.
Ethan: Because of Ryan?
Kendall: No, no, no, because of me. You think I suck at making baskets? Well, when it comes to this feelings and intimacy, I -- I should be benched for life.
Ethan: Look, you're being way too hard on yourself.
Kendall: No, you don't know my stats, Ethan, ok? I start out strong and then I foul out. And not just once or twice, but every time I end up hurting people. And I don't want to do that anymore, especially with you. We -- we have a connection, and it feels good. I don't want to mess that up.
Ethan: Neither do I. Look, the kiss just happened, ok, and maybe I feel the same connection that you do. And maybe it's because you're charming and beautiful.
Kendall: So then you understand?
Ethan: Absolutely, completely. I think you're totally right. We should ban kissing altogether, stick to basketball -- even though you are, if I may so, a somewhat lousy shot.
Jonathan: What if this guy's a really good actor? I just don't want to see you get burned.
Bianca: Well, thank you, I appreciate that, but I really don't think that Ethan is out to burn me.
Reggie: Just keep an eye on this Ethan guy, ok, and if he tries anything, you let me know. I'll be all in his business.
Bianca: Ok, thanks, Reggie. I don't think there's going to be any business to be all up in, but anyway, can we forget this for now? We're here to have fun, right?
Reggie: Right, fun.
Maggie and Jonathan: To fun.
Maggie: Oh, ok.
Jamie: You know, you should enjoy every minute you have with Bess.
J.R.: Yeah, don't I know it. It's true what they say -- they grow up so fast. I don't want to miss a second.
Jamie: Especially when you never know what's around the corner.
J.R.: What is that supposed to mean? You don't honestly think that Babe and you could take Bess away from me? Because you've already lost before you started. Bess isn't going anywhere. Isn't that right, princess?
Jamie: No, I'm just saying you never know. I mean, look at Bianca. When she was pregnant, she was so happy planning her life with Miranda, and then look what happened.
J.R.: You know what? Miranda died. What are you doing? Are you threatening me? You threatening my child?
Jamie: Don't get all bent. I'm just -- you know, you're so self-centered.
J.R.: No, I'm focused. I know what I want and I keep it.
Jamie: No, you're a jerk. All your threats about taking Bess? Don't you see Babe�s in pain?
J.R.: Yeah, I do see it. But frankly, I don't care.
Jamie: Because it's all about you.
J.R.: No, actually, it's all about Bess.
Jamie: You know what? Love her up while you can because karma is an amazing thing.
J.R.: Oh, what is that? Is that supposed to be, like, some sort of, like, Buddhist threat? A Zen threat? No, maybe fortune cookies, right?
Jamie: I'm just saying when Bianca needed a friend, you slammed her. When Babe begged for understanding, you shredded her. When you wake up alone -- and you will -- don't go looking for sympathy because it's all tapped out.
Babe: I just have to make sure that Ace is safe. Because if I go to jail for keeping Miranda from Bianca, it means that J.R. will get custody and I'll never see my little boy ever again.
Krystal: That keeps me up at night, Babe.
Babe: He's already so protective about Bess. I -- I can't let him anywhere near Ace.
Krystal: If Jamie turns out to be the baby's daddy, then we'll find the right time to break the news.
Babe: Mama, there is no way that Jamie would do anything to ruin my chances of getting my baby back.
Krystal: Not on purpose, honey, but you're asking him to hold on to mind-blowing, life-changing news. That kind of secret has a way of leaking out.
Babe: Look, all that I know is that if I have to go to jail, at least I�ll know that my baby has the best daddy ever to take care of him.
Krystal: It's David. This is it, Babe.
Greenlee: Hey. We won't lose this. No one's taking this away.
Ryan: I won't let anyone take anything from you ever again. You're safe. And you got me forever.
Kendall: Now just remember, you know, you might miss it a few times in the beginning because it's really just a game of precision and, uh -- and skill. That was very good. I'm --
Ethan: Lucky. Luck.
Kendall: Very, very impressed. Ok, just breathe. Ok. Wow. Ok. Ah. All right. You've done this before. Huh?
Ethan: I used to play summers in Italy. Actually, they almost tried to recruit me for the pro circuit.
Kendall: Great, great.
Ethan: You think a guy this tall's never seen a basketball, eh?
Kendall: Oh, God. Hey!
Reggie: Ok, all right, I'm done. We got to get out of here. Are you ready?
Bianca: Oh, yeah. Actually, yeah, I have a really early meeting tomorrow. Thanks so much for inviting us over.
Danielle: It's been real.
Jonathan: Well, hey, I had a great time. You know, really, I'm glad we got to clear things up.
Bianca: Yeah, me, too. I will see you soon.
Reggie: Yeah, let's get out of here, ok, before Dani drags me back to the dance floor. Bye.
Maggie: Bye, guys. Thank you so much.
Jonathan: For what?
Maggie: For being so great with my friends, especially Bianca.
Jonathan: Oh, come on, it's nothing. Don't say that to me. Nothing's too much for you. It was nothing at all. Bianca's sweet, actually. I mean, really, she's adorable.
Maggie: She's my best friend.
Jonathan: She's also the person you were in love with, isn't she?
J.R.: You were having to hear all those angry things said, but I promise it'll be over soon. It'll be over soon. And it'll just be laughs and kisses and the person who loves you the most in this world. Yeah. That's right.
Babe: Thank you, David.
Krystal: What did he say, Babe?
Jamie: Was that Hayward? Was that the results?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam: This blockbuster will score you complete custody of Bess.
Jamie: Who's the father of your baby, J.R. or me?
Jack: You have tiramisu in your purse, don't you?
Erica: Not exactly, but a question -- one very important question.
