Bianca: Mom? Ah.

Erica: Oh, honey. Hi, I'm so glad that you came. What do you think? Perfect space for new beginnings, right? I mean, can't you just see it -- with good lighting and with a fresh color palette?

Bianca: Mom, I just came from seeing J.R. His version of what Babe wrote in her letter? Totally different from yours. According to J.R., Babe wrote that -- that Bess is Miranda.

David's voice: If you tell Bianca that Miranda is alive now, your son and my daughter could very well end up being charged with murder and kidnapping by morning.

[Knock on door]

Tad: J.R.

J.R.: I need to talk you about Babe and Jamie -- and my baby.

Maria: Sure you're ok?

Officer: I'm really sorry.

Anita: Yeah, it's ok. I'm a total space cadet.

Maria: You're sure?

Anita: Yeah, go ahead, go back to your patient. Yeah, I'm good.

Officer: You got everything?

Anita: Yes, thank you.

Officer: We didn't contaminate anything, did we?

Aidan: Answer me, then.

Ethan: Just getting a bit of fresh air.

Aidan: Smells more like freedom to me, but it's kind of overkill.

Ethan: I don't follow.

Aidan: Your plan. It's flawless. In fact, pure genius until now. Why run when you can walk?

Ethan: What are you talking about?

Aidan: Someone took another shot at Ryan Lavery again today, and my money says that you're behind it.

Ryan: What are you waiting for? I mean, I just don't stand around and play target for anyone. Go ahead, grab your gun, take the shot. Let's get this going.

Zach: Find someone else to play with.

Ryan: This is as good as it's going to get. This time, you can't miss.

Zach: I didn't miss last time. I didn't shoot at you.

Ryan: Really? This says that you did. I pulled it out of the back seat of my car.

Zach: So?

Ryan: So compare it to the stash of bullets that you have in your desk. It's a perfect match.

Zach: You think?

Ryan: I'm sorry, Slater, but you tipped your hand. Game's over. You lose.

[Car starts]

[Tires screech]

Jonathan: Oh, my God.  Greenlee, Greenlee, are you ok? Greenlee, are you ok? Greenlee, are you ok? Are you ok? Can you hear me? Greenlee! Ok. Ok, good. Stay here, ok? Stay here. Jeez. Kendall? Kendall? Can you hear me? Kendall? Kendall, can you hear me? Come on, wake up. Kendall?

Ethan: Do you really think I'd hire some gunman to take shots at Lavery just so that I could get myself released?

Aidan: I expect nothing less from an Oxford grad.

Ethan: Except I just tried to make a run for it, and you -- you just caught me. Seems I missed all my plotting and scheming classes at Oxford University, eh?

Aidan: Yeah, but you aced marksmanship.

Ethan: A very good point. And exactly why you should be looking somewhere else, because let me assure you that if I had tried to shoot Lavery either time, he would be dead.

Officer: Not very smart.

Ethan: Seems to be the consensus around here.

Aidan: All right, that's my fault, Officer. He wasn't feeling very well, and I offered to bring him out here for some fresh air.

Officer: Yeah, guys in custody don't get air.

Maria: Ok, can we hold off on the cuffs, though?

Ethan: Hey.

Maria: I still need to get that hand. I need to X-ray it.

Officer: All right, let's go.

Maria: Take him inside. I'll be in in a second. Why did you just cover for him?

Aidan: The situation has changed a little bit. Ryan was shot at again today.

Maria: Oh, my God. Is he ok? Is he coming here?

Aidan: Yeah, he's fine, considering somebody's trying to kill him.

Maria: "Somebody"? But not Ethan?

Aidan: He seemed as surprised as you when I mentioned it to him.

Maria: Ok, well, do you think he's innocent or do you think he's still somehow involved?

Aidan: I don't know. I don't know what to think anymore.

Zach: I do have the same type of bullet. Doesn't mean I shot at you.

Ryan: Well, it's a good start.

Zach: To nowhere. I wasn't at that rest stop.

Ryan: How'd you know I was there?

Zach: It's all over the news.

Ryan: Oh, and I assume you have an alibi?

Zach: Of course I do.

Ryan: Yeah, nothing like being prepared?

Zach: Hmm. I knew you were going to show up here because Ramsey’s in jail, which puts me number one on your list.

Ryan: Yeah, but see, the thing is last time, your casino. This time, your bullet. So you see why I'm curious?

Zach: I do. But I have nothing against you. I mean, you annoy me a lot, but not enough to shoot you.

Ryan: Really? Are you done?

Zach: No, you're done. You got nothing on me.

Ryan: Actually, I do.

Maria: Oh! Damn it!

Anita: Used to cost us a quarter.

Maria: I swear I think Mama got rich off me.

Anita: Here, let me. You're exhausted.

Maria: Thank you. I feel like roadkill. I don't even know what's going on since Edmund shut me down.

Anita: Look, I know Edmund loves you and I know how much you love him. You have everything to fight for.

Maria: You know, I just -- I don't know if I have any fight left in me, Anita.

Anita: For Edmund? You would do anything. You basically came back from the dead.

Maria: Yeah, well, you know what? Compared to what's going on right now, I feel like the Lazarus thing was really easy. I just -- I just got to get out of here.

Anita: No. Look, you can spare 10 minutes.

Maria: No, I can't.

Anita: Come on, do it for me. I mean, with this whole separation thing and Bobby's being a total jerk, we can compare notes.

Maria: I know, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry about what you're going through with Bobby, but I just -- it's really not the same.

Anita: I know.

Maria: No, you don't know, ok? You don't know. You couldn't possibly know, because I love Edmund -- I really do -- but, God help me, I love Zach, too, and I -- I love them both.

Bianca: Stop stalling and just answer me. Did Babe say that -- that Bess is Miranda? Is that what you didn't want me to find out?

Erica: I didn't want to hurt you.

Bianca: I'm so tired of this. I'm so tired of people not telling me things because they don't want to upset me. Look at me, Mom! I'm upset!

Erica: Honey, I think withholding the truth to spare each other's feelings does seem to run in our family.

Bianca: I thought we were over this.

Erica: Honey, I will never be over trying to protect you.

Bianca: I can handle bad news, but I cannot handle being lied to. Please, Mom, tell me the truth, whatever it is.

Erica: Honey, I don't think you want to hear it, not about Babe. I've been trying to tell you, and you won't listen.

Bianca: Because you're wrong.

Erica: Babe said that she would never leave Bess, but she did. She said that she would always be here for you, but she's gone.

Bianca: Just tell me what Babe wrote in her letter.

Erica: I didn't read it. J.R. did. And according to J.R., it is full of lies.

Bianca: J.R.’s the liar, not Babe. He would say anything to get what he wants, but Babe -- Babe wouldn't write that Bess is mine unless it were true.

Erica: Honey, we know that Bess is Babe and J.R.’s baby. We know that because there was a DNA test that Tad and Joe did. I talked to Joe.

Bianca: I know, I know about the test.

Erica: Well, then there's your truth. Honey, if there's anyone you can trust in all of this, it is Joe and Tad.

Tad: So, why would you need to talk to me about Babe and Jamie and this little angel here?

[J.R. sighs]

J.R.: To save Jamie.

Tad: From what?

J.R.: Babe. He needs to be deprogrammed, and I couldn't do it.

Tad: So you tried? How'd it go?

J.R.: It was a major bust. I tried to reconnect with him like -- like old times, and I wanted to let him know that I want to be brothers again like we used to be.

Tad: But he wasn't buying?

J.R.: I wasn't selling it. I meant what I said. I tried to convince him that Babe's got him punked. She's just going to bring him down. He's not listening to me, and now they're gone. I just hope that Jamie never comes back.

Tad: Why would you say that?

J.R.: Because maybe I wasn't able to save him from Babe, but I might be able to save him from my dad.

Tad: What are you talking about? Adam's not a threat anymore. We beat him.

J.R.: When Jamie left, he stole money out of our safe. Adam caught him, and now he wants to drag him back and press charges. Then he wants to use that to get you to tell him where Colby is.

Tad: This just gets better and better.

J.R.: I know how much you love Jamie and how much you're ramped up to get him back, but please, Tad, for me, don't do it?

Tad: For his sake?

J.R.: Listen, I have no reason or right to ask this, but I -- just trust me on this, ok? Dad's not going to stop at anything to get Colby back.

Tad: Apparently, there's not much you'll stop at, either.

J.R.: Everything I've ever done is for my daughter, to protect her. Her father knows what she needs.

Tad: J.R., I think we should at least be honest with one another. The reason you don't want Jamie back is you don't want Babe back, because you know if she comes back to Pine Valley, she'll take that little girl away from you.

J.R.: She won't. I won't let her.

Tad: I know how much you love her.

J.R.: Of course I love her. She's my daughter.

Tad: J.R., if you love someone -- really love them -- you don't do whatever you have to to hang on to them. If you love someone, you accept the truth about who they are.

J.R.: It's a little late for a stepfather-son chat, don't you think?

Tad: I hope not. I just want to help.

J.R.: Then stop lecturing me about how Bess needs a mother. She doesn't. In fact, the only parent that she needs is me.

Tad: J.R. --

Joe: J.R. Hello.

J.R.: Hi.

Joe: Hi there, sweetheart. How's she doing?

J.R.: She's fine.

Joe: Yeah?

J.R.: Yeah, everything's just fine.

Tad: J.R.? J.R.!

Joe: What was that about?

Jonathan: Come on, are you all right? Kendall, are you all right? Yes, there.

Kendall: I'm all right.

Jonathan: Ok.

Kendall: I'm all right, I think.

Jonathan: Ok.

Kendall: I'm all right.

Jonathan: Careful.

Kendall: Oh, what happened?

Jonathan: Ok, don't move too quickly, don't move too quickly.

Kendall: Ooh.

Jonathan: Do you want to stand up? Here, I'll help you. Come here.

Kendall: There was a car --

Jonathan: Come here.

Kendall: A car came towards me. Did you see it? Did you see it? I thought that it was -- I don't know. I didn't know what it was. I thought that it -- it was you. You -- you tried to hit me!

Greenlee: You killed Ryan.

Kendall: What?

Greenlee: How could you do it?

Kendall: What? Ryan's dead?

Greenlee: You shot him!

Kendall: No!

Greenlee: I saw you!

Kendall: No! No!

Greenlee: I saw you shoot Ryan!

Jonathan: No, no, no! Hey, Ryan's not dead! Ryan's not dead! Ryan's not dead! He's just running an errand, remember? He'll be back soon!

Kendall: Wait, hold on, you're not just saying that?

Jonathan: No!

Kendall: He wasn't hurt?

Jonathan: No, not a scratch. Not a scratch on him.

Kendall: What --

Greenlee: No!

Kendall: What is wrong with you? What is wrong with you? You tried to kill me!

Greenlee: Ryan's dead!

Kendall: No.

Greenlee: My husband's gone! It's all your fault! You killed Ryan!

Kendall: Is this crazy act because you're going to plead insanity when I press charges on you?

Jonathan: I saw the whole thing! It was an accident, Kendall! She lost control of the car!

Kendall: Yeah, she lost control of her mind!

Greenlee: You murdered him! I saw you!

Kendall: No, no, put a leash on her!

Jonathan: Kendall, I think you should go now. You should go to the ER and get checked out.

Kendall: You know what, you'd better get all of your brain cells back, because you're going to be sorry. When I'm through with you, you are going to be so sorry.

Jonathan: Greenlee? Greenlee, what were you thinking? You almost hit her.

Greenlee: I wanted to kill her.

Jonathan: Come on, come on, we got to get upstairs. Let's get upstairs. We got to find Ryan.

Greenlee: No! I know where he is. He's lying in the grass where Kendall shot him.

Zach: So what do you have, more slugs?

Ryan: Know what this is?

Zach: Trick question.

Ryan: You remember. Alexander Cambias, Sr. gave it to his firstborn, his golden boy, Alex, Jr. Even inscribed it on the back, "To my son." It's too bad, though, because Junior died before his time, left behind the watch and Daddy with a broken heart.

Zach: Forgive me if I don't tear up.

Ryan: Oh, but you haven't heard the happy ending yet. The old man met me and he decided that I was gold enough to take the place of his son.

Zach: Point?

Ryan: You see, I know from bad childhoods, Alex. I know what a bad father can do to your head. He can make you feel like you just don't measure up. And that's what Alex did to you when he gave the title, but still let you know that you still fell short, and that's got to wear on you, man, a little bit. That's why you faked your death. That's why you started a whole new life. Everything was great till you found out that Daddy died and you'd been replaced by me. I had his respect and his watch and his money. And do you know why? Because I measured up like you never could. And that just brought out a lot of bad feelings inside of you, a lot of anger and a lot of jealousy, so you decide that the new golden boy should repeat history and die before his time.

Zach: That's an interesting theory. I never liked that watch. I'm glad you have it. It was always a little too slow for me.

Ryan: Yeah. It's time for you to get some help, Alex. Lucky for you, I hear they have really, really good shrinks in maximum security.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Slater. Where is he? Ok.

Ryan: Something wrong?

Zach: Business. I assume you want to give those to the police?

Ryan: Big of you.

Zach: Good luck with your investigation.

Maria: It was just another time, in another place, and then Zach walked right back into my life and -- wham -- it's --

Anita: Then you realized you still loved him, just like that?

Maria: No, no, I mean, I didn't want to admit to myself right away because I love Edmund. I love him, I love our life together, I love our family. He's everything that I ever wanted.

Anita: Until Zach walked into the middle of it?

Maria: I thought -- I mean, I really did -- I thought I could just be his friend, and I thought I could be Zach’s friend and Edmund's wife. What the hell was I thinking? I mean, seriously. And then I was blaming it on Edmund. I was angry at him for the way he was handling it, but how could I blame him? I was the one who was lying to him. I was the one who was denying it the whole time, and I think that he knew probably before I did that I still loved Zach.

Anita: It's a hard secret to keep.

Maria: Yeah. I tried not to love him. I really did. I mean, I just wanted him to be out of my life and out of my heart. And I couldn't. I couldn't do it. I couldn't cut him out of either one. So I kind of made this big, massive mess, and I didn't want to.

Anita: You used to clean up every mess that Rosa, Julia, and I would leave --

Maria: I know.

Anita: Before Mama and Papa would come home.

Maria: God, I wish this was just some grape juice on the curtains, but it's not, so -- I had these -- I fell in love in two separate lives, and then the lives just collided. So, what do you do?

[Knock on door]

Nurse: Dr. Grey?

Maria: Yeah?

Nurse: The X-ray for Ethan Ramsey’s hand.

Maria: Thank you. Ahem. Thanks.

Maria: Well, no fracture. Big surprise. Ok. Thanks for letting me vent, but I got to do all this paperwork and get Mr. Ramsey back to jail.

Anita: Don't stop now.

Maria: No, I have to. I've really got to do this. Thanks, though, ok, Anita? Thanks.

Ethan: All right, all right, all right. What now?

Officer: We wait till you're discharged. Sit down!

Ethan: Kendall. Hey!

Officer: Don't even think about it!

Ethan: All right.

Kendall: Ethan, wait, what are you doing here? Are you ok? What are you doing here?

Ethan: No, no, you first. What's going on?

Kendall: Greenlee tried to kill me.

Jonathan: I want you to stop worrying. Hey, my brother's alive and well. He's going to stay that way, and I'm going to make sure of it.

Greenlee: But I saw --

Jonathan: Whatever you think happened, Greenlee, Ryan's a survivor. I mean, even better than that, he's a winner. He runs a successful company, he lives the good life, and he has you. Ok? The only place Ryan's going is home to you every night. Here. I'm going to get you some more, ok? Get some rest.


Greenlee: Oh!

Ryan: Get down! Get down!

Greenlee: Ryan?

Ryan: Greenlee? Hey. Are you all right?

Greenlee: Get away. Get away from me.

Bianca: We still don't know what Babe wrote in that letter.

Erica: I agree. And I also know that J.R. would probably say or do anything right now to hurt Babe, and I can't say that I blame him. But you know what, honey -- whatever it was, it's over. It's past.

Bianca: I went off on J.R., Mom. I was so furious. I mean, trying to make me believe that Babe would make up such a horrible lie? Babe would lie about some things, yes, but there's no way that -- there's no way that -- that she would say Bess is Miranda. And then Bess made that little cry of hers, and I looked down at her and she looked back at me. I -- I felt something. It was so intense.

Bianca: What if --

Erica: Oh, honey, please don't. Please don't do this. Please don't torment yourself. The DNA test proves that Bess isn't your little girl.

Bianca: I know. I know it. But for that -- for that brief moment when I looked into her eyes --

Erica: I know. And, you see, this is exactly what I was afraid of, honey, because no matter whose lie it is, J.R.’s or Babe's, it hurts you. It gives you false hope. I don't want to see you cling to something that can't be.

Bianca: No, no, no, no -- no clinging. I know. I know that Miranda is gone. I know that Bess isn't mine. I had a brief flash, but that's it. It's over, for good.

Erica: I'm sorry. I just don't want you to be unhappy anymore.

Bianca: I'm more angry. I mean, of all the lies that J.R. could've chosen to tell about Babe, he was so cruel to choose that one.

Erica: Yes. Well, cruelty seems to run with the Chandler men.

Bianca: Yeah, but it just doesn't make any sense. I mean, I know that J.R. hates Babe, but it seems like he wants everybody else to hate her, too.

Erica: Well, she slept with his brother, so that is double the betrayal and -- and double the pain. And for a man like J.R., revenge is the only answer.

Bianca: But it's just so horrible.

Erica: Do you remember how your father was when he learned about your Uncle Jack and me? There were no winners. Betrayal can really rip a family to shreds.

[Knock on door]

Zach: Hey. How's Ethan? What happened?

Maria: You care?

Zach: Of course I care.

Maria: Well, that's not according to Ethan, because I know you offered to help him and then you didn't post bail.

Zach: He's better off in jail.

Maria: Why, because you think he's guilty?

Zach: Is my son all right?

Maria: Well, your son attacked a wall, so he hurt his fist pretty badly. Do you still think he's better off in jail?

Zach: He's still here?

Maria: If he didn't try to escape again.

Zach: If he what?

Maria: He got so desperate, he tried to escape.

Zach: Wait -- he could've screwed up everything.

Kendall: Greenlee could've just lost control of the car. I mean, she's been a mess. She totally freaked out when she found out that Ryan was shot at again.

Ethan: Well, I can't blame her, but to accuse you of killing Ryan is just completely --

Kendall: No, it's crazy.

Ethan: Yeah.

Kendall: It's crazy, I know, ok? She's completely lost her mind. I don't know, but thank God that they're both alive and they're unhurt. It's a miracle. Wait a minute, if somebody shot at Ryan, Ethan, this is -- this is your get-out-of-jail-free card. I -- I have to call Livia. I'm going to call Livia right now and tell her what happened.

Anita: You're the one who needs a ride.

Kendall: I'll wait for the next bus.

Anita: I'm afraid this is it. Radiology is waiting.

Ethan: Hey, go on. Get patched up.

Kendall: Is there a seat belt on this thing?

Ethan: Look after her.

Greenlee: Get away.

Ryan: Greenlee, please --

Greenlee: Stay away from me.

Ryan: Please --

Greenlee: No, I mean it, I mean it! Get away! Leave me alone!

Ryan: Do you know who I am? Do you know who I am?

Greenlee: You're not real.

Ryan: I am real, Greenlee. It's -- it's me. It's Ryan. I'm your husband.

Greenlee: No. No. No, you're lying. You're lying! I saw him! I watched him die.

Ryan: I'm alive.

Greenlee: No, you're dead! I saw everything! You're not real! I don't want you! I want him! I want my husband back! I want Ryan back! I want Ryan! I want Ryan! I want Ryan!

Kendall: Ow!

Anita: Sorry. Pay any more guys to sleep with someone lately?

Kendall: Great. I almost get hit by a car by a freak, and now the hospital staff is taking shots at me. Nice.

Anita: Not the staff. Just me. At least you're not denying it.

Kendall: You're not going to leave any air bubbles in that, are you?

Anita: Oh, don't worry. I'm a professional. So you know, you'll get your money back.

Kendall: It's not necessary.

Anita: I don't like debts. I don't want to owe anyone anything.

Kendall: Well, actually, it's more like I owe you. When I sicced Bobby on Greenlee, I was -- I was desperate. I was totally pathetic. I loved Ryan so much that I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that the man that I lived for couldn't love me the way I wanted to be loved.

Anita: That makes two of us.

Ryan: Hi, it's me. It's Ryan.

[Ryan knocks]

Ryan: You hear that? It's real. It's me. Please just try, ok? Just -- just give me your hand. Give me your hand. Touch me. Touch me for a second. You feel that? You feel that? It's me. That's my heart. It's beating because I am alive, and I love you. Hi.

Greenlee: Ryan?

Ryan: Yeah.

Joe: And you say Bess is really Miranda?

Tad: And Ace Buchanan is Babe's son. That DNA test we ran was worthless because of Krystal. Now, you know how I feel about family, Pop. If Babe felt she had to be with her son and snatching him was the only way to make it happen, I could understand that to a certain extent. Why the hell did she have to involve Jamie?

Joe: Yeah, well, if I were to judge, Jamie involved himself.

Tad: Then there's Babe, Krystal, David all the while comforting Bianca, trying to help her through her tragedy, and the entire time they were raising her daughter in front of her face.

Joe: Well, with Hayward, you know, anything's possible. But I am surprised about Babe and Krystal.

Tad: Yeah, well, they had me snowed, too. Now they're dragging my son through hell. You knew Paul Cramer. If he had bad karma coming his way, it's his fault, but if he is dead and Hayward’s right, then Jamie is a prime suspect.

Joe: Look, we both know that Jamie is not a murderer.

Tad: Ordinarily, I'd agree with you. Ordinarily. But what if Hayward’s right and Jamie got to Cramer, cornered him? Cramer had a gun. Pop, maybe Jamie didn't have a choice. In any case, even if he's not guilty of murder, he's still guilty of kidnapping.

Joe: It's -- it's like your son is reliving your history.

Tad: Now's probably not the time for "I told you so's," Pop.

Joe: Yeah.

Tad: I mean, when Dixie and I took J.R. back from Adam, I was convinced I was doing the right thing, exactly the same way I'm sure that Jamie's convinced he's doing the right thing, but there was a difference. For Jamie to let his own brother, J.R., run around thinking that his child is dead, all Jamie is doing is making the same mistake Babe did all over again. Now, why would he do something like that?

Joe: J.R. -- is he still in denial about Bess?

Tad: Complete denial. After everything that poor kid's been through his entire life. I mean, losing Dixie was the last straw. Now I'm convinced he's hanging on that little girl with everything he has because he can't face losing her. It's ripping me up because J.R. and I can't be straight with one another. I can't reach out to him, help him deal with the truth, let Bess go. And Bianca? Every single day that goes by is another day taken from her and the joy of knowing that her daughter is alive. It's disgusting. What kind of people take a -- a child away from its mother and convince themselves that it's all right?

Joe: So, what do you want to do? You want to tell the truth to Bianca and J.R.?

Tad: Oh, in the worst way. Pop, I feel like I'm drowning in lies. I don't know how to help myself. I don't know whom to tell and what I would tell them if I did. And no matter what I do, it's -- everybody gets screwed. Hell, I haven't even told Brooke yet.

Joe: Really? Why not?

Tad: Because if Jamie gets arrested, I don't want her to have to testify against her own son.

Joe: Well, you're getting ahead of yourself now. We've only got Hayward’s word that Jamie was anywhere near that guy's body.

Tad: It's true enough. In his own twisted way, he might be trying to protect Babe. And I got to give it to him, I understand it. There's nothing he wouldn't do for her, the same way there's nothing I wouldn't do for Jamie. But no matter what I do, somebody is going to have to suffer. So you tell me, what do I do?

Joe: I think you already know.

Erica: What do you think? Great bones, huh? Everything's here. The right touch, it'll be perfect.

Bianca: I think it's great. I think you should go for it.

Erica: Oh, I will. The only thing I have to do now is convince Zach Slater to sell it to me. Ahem.

Bianca: Well, I'm afraid you're on your own on that one. I'm done with Zach.

Erica: Well, I can't tell you how -- ahem -- really glad I am to hear that, honey. I mean, Zach Slater certainly cannot be trusted.

Bianca: Well, then are you sure you want to do business with him?

Erica: You know something? The way I feel now, I could do anything, including beating Zach Slater at his own game.

Bianca: Well, then I think he'd better watch out.

Erica: Honey, I want this for you and Kendall, too. I want you to know that you can tackle anything. I promised your sister that I would help her find her new beginning. And maybe you and me and Kendall can find our new beginnings together.


J.R.: "A-Da"? Yeah? "Daddy"? Can you say " Daddy"? Watch me. "Daddy." Yeah. Yeah. I'm your daddy. I always will be.

[Miranda squeals]

J.R.: Yeah.

Joe: Good luck, son.

Tad: I'll need it.

Joe: Keep in touch, huh?

Tad: Will do.

Joe: Ok. Hi, Aidan.

Aidan: Dr. Martin.

Joe: Thank you.

Tad: Did you get it?

Aidan: Yeah, it's right here.

Tad: Good, because I don't know whether to thank you or smack you. Hooking up Jamie with fake IDs. What the hell did you think you were doing? "Kate and Brad Anderson"? My gran would get a kick out of this. You're sure these are the names they're using?

Aidan: Yeah, positive.

Tad: All right, then there's only one thing left to do. Let's go find the Andersons.

Kendall: Thank you. Oh, Livia, Livia. Thank God you're here. So can you help Ethan? Can you help him get released?

Livia: As soon as I heard about the shooting, I filed a motion to dismiss. Judge Pleet is willing to hear it this evening.

Kendall: Oh, oh, you're the best.

Livia: I've been told.

Kendall: Just think, in a few hours, it'll all be over.

Ryan: Ok. You just -- you just rest now, ok, my little butterfly? Everything's going to be ok.

Jonathan: Oh, I'm glad you're back. She's --

Ryan: Shh, shh, shh. She's a mess. What happened?

Jonathan: There was an incident in the parking garage. She -- she tried to run Kendall down.

Ryan: What?

Jonathan: She got it in her head that Kendall shot and killed you.

Ryan: Oh, my God. Why didn't you call me?

Jonathan: I was trying to calm her down.

Ryan: You didn't calm her down! You left her alone!

Jonathan: She hadn't eaten all day! I thought she'd feel better after some food! I just ran across the street!

Greenlee: Ryan?

Ryan: Hey. I'm here. I'm right here.

Greenlee: I feel like my head's going to explode.

Ryan: We're going to take care of that right now. I'm going to pick you up, ok? Ready?

Greenlee: Where are we going?

Ryan: We're going to go to the hospital and we're going to figure out what's going on and get you better right now.

Zach: Thank you for trying to help Ethan.

Maria: Wait, wait, wait. What would Ethan have screwed up?

Zach: You heard about the Lavery shooting?

Maria: Yeah, someone went after Ryan again.

Zach: Someone else went after Ryan. Which means the charges against Ethan should be dismissed. And if he tries to run, it makes him look guilty.

Maria: Which would blow his chance at a dismissal. That was your plan, wasn't it? Is that why he should've stayed in jail and he was better off? You didn't bail him out because it wouldn't have actually solved the real problem, so that's why you didn't do it. So if there's another shooter, then the charges are dropped, the case is dismissed, and Ethan is free. Oh, my God. The other shooter was you.

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

Man: That is a fine-looking baby y'all got. Is he yours?

Adam: Is Bess our granddaughter or did we have a grandson?

Ryan: Do you have any idea at all what it could be?

Greenlee: She thinks I have a brain tumor, Ryan. She thinks I'm going to die.
