Bianca: Oh.

Kendall: Happy New Year! Whoo!

Bianca: Oh, my God. You have to keep your voice down. It's a hospital.

Kendall: Yeah, well, even more reason to spread my joyous, wonderful holiday joy. Bring it on, Ethan.

Ethan: Are you ready for a party?

Bianca: Hi. Oh, my goodness.

Kendall: That's right.

Bianca: What is all of this stuff?

Kendall: Well, we have everything from pate to yummy-yummy cookies. Yes, everything in between.

Anita: You guys making all that noise?

Bianca: Hey.

Anita: Miranda just woke up from her nap.

Kendall: Oh, well, you better let Auntie Kendall take care of this. This is going to be her very first New Year's and we're going to celebrate it in full Kane style.

Bianca: Oh. Oh, easy. What a nice surprise. Ethan, I have never seen Kendall more excited about a holiday, ever. I love it.

Ethan: Yeah. There's a lot to love about Kendall.

Lily: So will you be my boyfriend?

Reggie: Wait a minute, I did not just hear that.

Aidan: I'm not sure I understand, Lily.

Reggie: Lily, why don't we go talk somewhere, just, you know, you and me.

Lily: I don't want to leave Aidan right now.

Aidan: No, maybe Reggie has a good idea.

Jack: Oh, great, you're all here, early for the New Year celebration.

Livia: Happy New Year.

Danielle: Maybe not.

Lily: I want Aidan to come to our party, Dad.

Jack: Well, of course.

Lily: Because he's my boyfriend.

Erica: I will not be happy until they spend their lives behind bars.

Officer: Chief?

Derek: I'll be right back.

Krystal: Well, I know you're not here to spring us.

Tad: No, Erica called me.

Erica: Tad, now we have to be sure that Derek puts out an APB on Babe as soon as possible, before she gets any further away.

Krystal: He can't.

David: Erica, you have us where you want us. Leave Babe out of it.

Erica: Now, what kind of justice would that be? Babe lied for months about being Miranda�s mother. Then she ran away to try to avoid paying the price. So to ask me that Babe be let off without being punished? No, I'm sorry. That is asking me way too much.

David: Well, then blame me. What I did was much worse.

Tad: Was always more than humanity can bear, which is why nobody ever listens to you anyway. So I'm begging you to listen to me. Please, give Babe a break. Just leave her alone.

Kendall: Meet the 2005 baby -- baby of the New Year, Miss Miranda Mona Montgomery.

Bianca: Ooh. Oh, my goodness. Where's my camera when I need it?

Ethan: Oh, I have a disposable camera. Hold on, hold on.

Anita: Oh, you guys don't miss a trick.

Bianca: You have little legs, now, don't you?

Kendall: Oh, my goodness.

Bianca: All the Kane women.

Kendall: Ok, while she's chewing on her -- smile.

Greenlee: I've had some pretty exciting New Year's celebrations, but breaking into Kendall's house -- that's one for the old scrapbook. How you doing there?

Ryan: I'm working on it.

Greenlee: Maybe we should try plan B.

Ryan: I want to bring in the new year with some answers.

Greenlee: Yeah, me, too. But this is our first New Year's together as husband and wife. I don't want to spend it in jail.

Ryan: Kendall is partying with Bianca at the hospital. We're going to be long gone by the time she gets back here. Ok, nobody's going to catch us.

Greenlee: Maybe I'll come up with my New Year's resolutions.

Ryan: That's a good idea.

Greenlee: I resolve to exercise every day, cut back on sugar, and totally give up breaking and entering.

Ryan: Well, I resolve to find out if Kendall poisoned you.

Greenlee: Obviously she has an atomic lock. Me? I've got a nice big bottle of champagne back at our place with our name on it. Wouldn't you rather twist my cork than wrestle with her cylinders?

Ryan: I got it.

Greenlee: Didn't you find Ethan in the kitchen the last time?

Ryan: Yep.

Greenlee: So you plan on finding incriminating evidence with the spatulas?

Ryan: Maybe. Don't want to risk it.

Greenlee: Diet soda, nonfat yogurt. For God's sake, Kendall, eat a cookie. Ice cream! Chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Huh. Never been touched. Wouldn't you know?

Ryan: No -- don't, don't, don't! You can't eat or drink anything in here.

Greenlee: How long do you plan on monitoring everything I eat?

Ryan: Until we find out who poisoned you. Now, can I get some help, please?

Greenlee: Only if it means we get home sooner. Ever notice how Kendall shows up for work at 9:00 a.m. dressed for cocktail hour? You think she actually has plans or is it just wishful thinking?

Ethan: Ok, what do you think, guys?

Anita: That's not bad.

Ethan: Yeah?

Anita: Looks good.

Bianca: All right, Ethan, what do you think of our little girl?

Ethan: I think she is quite possibly the most beautiful baby I've ever seen.

Bianca: Do you want to hold her?

Ethan: Me? No, I think that's a bad idea.

Anita: No.

Kendall: Oh, come on. Yes, yes, give me -- come on, yes, yes.

Ethan: Ok, Kendall, really, I -- I don't know what I'm doing.

Kendall: Yes, you can, yes, you can, yes, you can.

Anita: Besides, she'll let you know if you're doing anything wrong.

Kendall: Look, look. Go see Aidan, go see Aidan. Oh, yes!

Ethan: Hey. Hi.

Kendall: Oh, see? See that? It's not so bad.

Bianca: No, you're a natural.

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Ethan: Hey.

Anita: Hmm.

Ethan: No, it's not too bad at all. Hi, Miranda.

Kendall: Aw, who's that?

Ethan: Hey. How are you doing? Whoop.

Kendall: Aw.

Ethan: My name's Ethan. Nice to meet you.

Kendall: Ooh.

Ethan: Did you have a nice Christmas? I see you have lots of presents. Lots of presents. Nice weather we're having, isn't it? You know it's nice weather. English weather. English football weather. Manchester United, since you asked. Hey. Just a little struggle up.

Kendall: My God.

Bianca: Kendall? Do you see what I'm seeing?

Kendall: Yeah.

Ethan: Hi.

Aidan: Don't jump to any conclusions, Jack. It's not what it seems.

Jack: Well, it seems like my teenage -- no, my underage daughter just referred to you as her boyfriend. Now, why is that?

Danielle: Ouch.

Livia: Did you have anything to do with this?

Reggie: J, wait, wait, before you do anything, the whole boyfriend thing wasn't Aidan's idea, just to clear that up.

Lily: It was mine.

Jack: Yeah, well, sweetheart, it's not as simple as all that.

Lily: It's very simple. Aidan and I are going to hook up.

Jack: You, me, in there, now.

Livia: Your legal counsel's coming, too.

Jack: Would you please tell me what the hell's going on in there?

Aidan: I don't know, Jack. I'm as knocked out about this as you are.

Jack: Well, what did you do? What did you say?

Aidan: It just came out of nowhere. I was just making a date with Anita Santos when Lily comes and springs this on me.

Jack: No, no, no, no, no. Think hard, think hard, please, because Lily takes things very literally.

Aidan: Anita and I came across her the other day over at the boathouse. She was being tormented by three of her school friends.

Jack: Oh, my God, those three girls are at it again.

Aidan: Yeah, they're mean girls, as well, Jack --

Jack: Yeah, they are.

Aidan: So I gave them an earful and I sent them on their way. I gave her my jacket to keep her warm and a pair of green-tinted sunglasses. And when I popped by your place the other day to pick them up and to see how she was doing, I told her that she could keep the jacket. The next thing I know, she thinks we're going steady.

Jack: Well, now, I think I understand it. You rode to her rescue. You gave her presents. That's nothing that Lily ever expects from anybody outside the family.

Aidan: I was just doing what needed to be done.

Jack: And I appreciate that. But now you are her hero.

Livia: I've fallen harder for less.

[Jack chuckles]

Livia: Hmm.

Aidan: I seem to have made a real mess of it, haven't I? How do we fix it?

Erica: Look, Tad, I owe you a lot. I mean, you were the only one with the courage to tell me about Miranda and I get it that you're in a very tough spot with Jamie. Believe me, I do.

Tad: You're right, I am. That's why I'm begging you to cut me some slack, please.

Erica: Look, I feel for you. I even feel for Brooke. I can't imagine what it must be like to have a child who completely abandons every single principle you ever taught them, to run off with someone like Babe, a criminal?

Krystal: She's not a criminal.

Tad: All right, ok, could we just keep a lid on it, please?

Erica: No, I haven't even started --

Tad: No, no, no.


Man: He has a gun! Get down!

Derek: It's ok, everybody. It wasn't gunfire -- just fireworks.

Erica: I don't need your protection!

David: Well, that would be a first. How many times have I covered your backside?

Erica: Only when there was something in it for you.

David: Really? And what was in it for me when I confessed to killing Michael Cambias? I was willing to go down for murder to help protect your daughter, Erica. So help me protect mine.

Erica: There's a big difference. Kendall wasn't guilty. Babe is.

Krystal: What happened?

Tad: I guess some -- somebody set off some fireworks.

Krystal: Why?

Tad: Probably a diversion. You all right? What is it? What's wrong?

Krystal: Well, it looks like something almost hit me.

Tad: Something did hit you. You're lucky. Looks like you got grazed by a bottle rocket or something.

Krystal: Well, rocket man, if you hadn't have thought so quick on your feet, I might have lost one of my best assets. Thank you. And thanks for sticking up for Babe.

Derek: All right. All right, get the suspects into interrogation for their statements.

David: No, we don't say anything without our lawyers.

Krystal: David?

David: We know our rights.

Derek: All right, that's your call, Hayward. But you can wait in lockup. I got to warn you, though -- it's a full house down there. Let's go. You know the way.

Erica: Well, how sweet was that, the way you jumped in and protected Krystal?

Tad: Oh, come on, Erica. You can't make anything of that.

Erica: Is Krystal the reason that you want to protect Babe? Is that what this is about, Tad?

Ryan: Greenlee?

Greenlee: I don't think Kendall would try to hurt me.

Ryan: I know you don't want to go there, neither do I.

Greenlee: No, let's focus on the other suspects, like who shot you. Zach Slater lives across the courtyard. Let's break into his place instead.

Ryan: Zach's on my list, Ethan�s on my list, but there's a very strong chance that Ethan and Kendall are in this together.

Greenlee: Well, they are connected at the hip except for the second shooting --

Ryan: That was Zach -- I'm positive. But maybe Ethan is Zach's son and Zach staged the entire thing to get Ethan off the hook for the first shot.

Greenlee: Or he just wants to finish the job. Tell me what we did to deserve this.

Ryan: If we're walking around with bull's-eyes on our backs because of the Cambias fortune, then what does that mean for Miranda?

Greenlee: Kendall would never hurt Miranda. She loves that baby more than life.

Ethan: We're both celebrating a first tonight -- my first New Year in this country and your first New Year, ever.

Bianca: I think she's in love.

[Miranda fusses]

Ethan: What's that, sweetheart? Shall we make some resolutions? Ok, I resolve to grow a foot shorter. And how about you? Ok, Miranda resolves that she --

[Miranda screams]

Ethan: I'm telling her! I'm telling her.

[Bianca laughs]

Ethan: Miranda resolves that she is never going to give her mom a hard time or cry.

Bianca: Oh, well, I think I can live with that.

[Kendall laughs]

Ethan: She's jumping.

Kendall: She is.

Ethan: Well, I suspect she's going to break her resolution as soon as the hunger pangs kick in after midnight, but not before I break mine -- hello. Hello. Oh. God, somebody's got a soggy bum.

Bianca: Auntie Kendall, you want to handle that?

Kendall: Oh, right, of course. Of course I will. I still can't get over it.

Ethan: I know, I know. Apparently any idiot can handle a baby, including me.

Kendall: Come here.

Bianca: See you soon. You know, Ethan, I think Kendall meant she can't get over how much Miranda resembles you.

Ethan: God help her if that's true.

Bianca: Ethan? You remember that I told you that I wanted you to be a Cambias because I wanted a connection to the daughter that I had lost or thought I lost. Well, now we know she's here, and I think she could use a cousin. Do you want to find out for sure if you're a Cambias?

Ethan: Let's not go there, shall we?

Bianca: Ethan, you're a cotton swab away from finding out the truth. No old shirts, no dead relatives, no evasive Zach Slater. You were holding the evidence right in your arms. And I can speak for Miranda, your new friend -- she will happily give you a little bit of her DNA.

Anita: Hey. What's going on?

Jack: Hi, Anita. Well, it seems that my daughter has a good-size crush on your friend here.

Anita: Well, she has good taste.

Jack: Well, be that as it may, she can't be allowed to think there's any kind of possibility there.

Anita: Maybe you guys are taking her too literally. I mean, why don't you find out what having a boyfriend means to her, and if it's something you can do, you might not have to hurt her at all.

Lily: Why did they go in there? I don't like that. Aidan didn't answer when I asked him to be my boyfriend.

Danielle: It's a big commitment to make.

Lily: But he likes me. He told me I was special.

Reggie: Lily, you are special. Aidan just wants to -- to help you.

Lily: I don't want help. I want a boyfriend.

Reggie: And I want to be the center for the Houston Rockets -- not in this lifetime, sweetie.

Danielle: Reggie. Remember when we talked about the different feelings you can have for guys? Well, it's the same for them. Some girls are meant to just be their friend. Others rock their world.

Lily: Don't I rock his world?

Reggie: Lily, I'm sure Aidan thinks you're amazing -- who wouldn't? -- But this thing between you two, it just can't happen.

Lily: Don't say that! I want a boyfriend!

Reggie: Lily, stop. No, Lily, wait! Lily, please, open up.

Danielle: Please, Lily, let us in.

[Pounding on door]

Reggie: Lily, please, open up!

Danielle: Lily, open the door, please?

Reggie: Lily, come on.


Reggie: Come outside.

Ryan: I don't understand why you're resisting Kendall as a suspect.

Greenlee: I don't know. I just -- I have this feeling.

Ryan: Look, I love and I respect you, Greenlee, but I can't cross Kendall off the list because of a vague feeling that you have. All right? You were poisoned, and you've been in Kendall's sights since our wedding day. She had motive. She had opportunity every day that we worked together.

Greenlee: She's not the only one out there who hates me.

Ryan: Look, I really need to do this, ok, with or without you.

Greenlee: Where do you want me to look?

Ryan: The inner sanctum.

Greenlee: Ok, you clearly don't have a clue about where women hide things. You have to know what we value most and start there.

Ryan: So stay clear of the baseball collection?

Greenlee: Go work on her computer.

Ryan: Would Kendall use her birthday as a password?

Greenlee: You're thinking like a man again.

Ryan: Thank God.

Greenlee: A woman never gives her birth year, even to her computer.

Ryan: Well, you got any better ideas?

Greenlee: Try Jimmy Choo, C-H-O-O.

Ryan: Like choo-choo train?

Greenlee: Yeah. Sure.

Ryan: No luck. You?

Greenlee: Nothing.

Kendall: Here you go, you sweet little thing. Ah, boy. Yeah, Mandy, yeah. Ok. Good girl.

Ethan: Thank you for the offer, Bianca, but I'm not a Cambias. I've accepted that.

Kendall: Why, because Zach says so? Now, you know you can't trust him.

Ethan: This has nothing to do with trust. I don't want to be a Cambias -- it's meaningless to me.

Kendall: Well, how can you say that?

Ethan: Well, come on, girls. Why'd I want all that trouble of changing my stationery, towels, monograms?

Bianca: Ethan, don't joke about this.

Ethan: I don't want it. I don't care about the money or the power. I certainly would be insane to want to be related to Zach Slater or be any part of that family.

Bianca: Pardon me, but you know what? Miranda is a Cambias, and she won't have the monogram, as you put it, or the family name, but she's going to have everything else that Alex, Sr. left behind. Ryan has decided to sign over the inheritance.

Miranda: Ha!

Bianca: Hmm.

Kendall: Yeah. I told you he would.

Ethan: Really?

Bianca and Kendall: Yes.

Bianca: And you need to think about Miranda here a little bit. I mean, when she's old enough to take over the responsibility for the estate, I'm going to help her as much as I can, but wouldn't it be awesome if she had somebody on the Cambias side of the family that she could trust, somebody that she could share it with?

Kendall: Yeah, and it's certainly not going to be Zach. Now, look, I know it's a lot easier for you to just try and forget about the truth, but trust me, take it from me. I promise you, not knowing is going to absolutely drive you nuts.

Bianca: Yeah. I can vouch for that one. I mean, all those months that I didn't know my baby was alive, I still knew that I was missing something, and it ate away at me, and I knew that I was going to have to find it before I could go on with my life.

Kendall: Ethan, I see you. I watch you. You can't sleep. You're up all night. You pace, you worry.

Bianca: If you want a good night's sleep, go for the truth.

Tad: All I'm trying to do is protect my son.

Erica: Are you saying that Jamie knew about the baby all along?

Tad: No. He couldn't have known about the baby switch. I mean, if he'd known, I would have known. Jamie's not the one who betrayed Bianca.

Erica: Then his only crime was hormonal -- he fell for Babe.

Tad: Right. So the last thing I want to see as his father is to watch him get locked up for something like that.

Erica: But I will be doing Jamie a favor if I make Derek run after Babe. He'll arrest her, he'll lock her up, she'll get punished, and then Jamie can get over his infatuation and on with his life.

Tad: With all due respect to everything you've been through, I don't think you're cutting those kids enough slack or giving them enough credit. I mean, after the letters that Babe wrote didn't work, they risked everything, everything to make things right. I mean, can you imagine the courage it took to tell Bianca the truth to her face? If they hadn't taken that risk, there's a good chance that J.R. would still have Miranda right now.

Erica: Tad, it is just too little, way too late. Babe nearly destroyed my daughter when she kept her baby from her. That's unforgivable. No, please don't ask me for leniency. If I have my way, not Jamie, but Babe, her mother, and David will spend a life paying for the suffering they've caused.

Zach: Erica. If you need any help, I'm your man.

Tad: Slater, why are you lurking around?

Erica: No, Tad, please. Let me.

Tad: By all means.

Erica: All right, let me be perfectly clear --

Zach: Ahem.

Erica: I don't need or want your help. Leave my family alone.

Zach: Well, it's my family, too. Miranda is my brother's child.

Erica: Oh, don't you dare. Miranda is Bianca's child, and you cut your ties to the Cambias family years ago.

Zach: Be that as it may, she's still my niece. And Hayward and the Carey women will pay for what they've done. Now, you've made a mistake. You should have come to me instead of calling the police. I have associates that will find Babe in no time at all.

Erica: I'm not very impressed by your seedy underworld connections.

Zach: Still, they will find her, bring her back here, and she and her parents will be dealt with quickly.

Erica: No. I want their suffering to be drawn out, excruciatingly, the way Bianca's was.

Zach: I don't have a problem with that. I'll go after them, on my own if I have to or with you. It's your call, Erica Kane.

Bianca: Must be nice to sleep like that, without a care.

Kendall: Hmm.

Ethan: Come on. I thought we were here to count down the New Year, ladies, not play identity crisis. Listen, we've got people coming and the champagne's not even uncorked. Ok?

Bianca: You know what? New plan.

Ethan: What?

Bianca: You're leaving.

Kendall: Wait, what? No -- why?

Bianca: Well, because I think you guys should find someplace quiet and romantic and celebrate the New Year together with this.

Ethan: No, I'm -- ladies, I'm not going to come between the three of you on New Year's Eve.

Bianca: It's not possible. And besides, Kendall has been with me ever since we got back from Florida nonstop. I think she deserves a break, don't you?

Kendall: Are you sure? Binks, are you sure?

Bianca: Please, I insist. Look, go find someplace perfect before the clock strikes midnight. I'm going to have plenty of company here.

Kendall: Ok.

Ethan: Happy New Year, Miranda Mona Montgomery. That's a beautiful baby.

Ryan: Any luck yet?

Greenlee: No. She won't get lucky, either, if she's wearing this rag. Disco retro alert. Huh. Not so bad.

[Greenlee removes her jacket to try on something of Kendall's]

Ryan: I'm not having any luck with -- Greenlee?

[When the sight of his wife in a strapless top turns Ryan on, the two engage in some heavy kissing]

Ryan: You know what? This isn't very productive.

Greenlee: You want productive? Take me home, and I'll give you that Christmas present I promised you.

Ryan: You know what? You know what -- no. I would love to make a baby with you, all right? I want to make -- I want to make a lot of babies with you, but not until I know you're safe. All right? I love you, and I know this isn't your idea of a fun Auld Lang Syne, but I promise you an incredible year next year and the year after that and many more after that. The only thing that matters right now is my first resolution for our first year together, and that is to make sure that you don't get hurt, ok?

Greenlee: Then get it in gear. You got a computer to hack, and I got to tear this place apart.

Ryan: Stop distracting me.

Greenlee: Try "Miranda."

Ryan: Genius! I'm in!

Jack: Lily? It's Dad. Open the door, please?

Anita: You want me to track down a key?

Aidan: No, it's all right. I got it.

Jack: Honey, honey, I just want to talk to you, ok? Please open the door. Did you get it?

Aidan: May I?

Jack: Sure.

Aidan: Lily? Lily, it's me. I've just come inside here just to talk to you about what you said earlier. And it's very important that you hear me, ok? I'm really, really flattered that you want me to be your boyfriend, but I didn't answer you earlier because I wasn't sure what you meant. Any chance that you could tell me what it is that you want from your boyfriend?

Lily: I just want someone that I can talk to and that can talk to me and that likes me just because I'm me. But I don't want any touching or sex or anything like that.

Aidan: Well, that's good, because that won't be in my plans, either.

Lily: But we could have fun, like we could play math games and we could do jigsaw puzzles.

Aidan: Yeah, we could do that. We could play a math game right now. Do you want to give me a puzzle?

Lily: What's the square root of 289? It's so simple.

Aidan: Um -- 17?

Lily: You did it.

Aidan: I'm a little bit rusty without my calculator.

Lily: So, will you be my boyfriend?

Aidan: I already am.

Jack: Hi.

Lily: So, will you come visit me tomorrow?

Aidan: You bet.

Lily: Right, and thank you for being my boyfriend.

Aidan: It's my honor, Lily. I wish you a Happy New Year.

Lily: Thank you.

Jack: Well, Bianca's waiting for us, so, Reggie, if you don't mind, lead the troops that way.

Reggie: Yeah. Thanks, man.

Jack: Well, nicely done.

Aidan: She's a great girl.

Livia: And you're a prince.

Jack: And you've -- you got your hands full now. You better bone up on your math skills.

Aidan: I know.

Jack: Listen, Anita told me to tell you to stay right where you are. She'll be back with some kind of a New Year's surprise.

Aidan: Well, she's only got 15 minutes till midnight.

Jack: Well, judging by her enthusiasm, she'll make it.

Livia: But I might not and Tom is going to kill me. Tell Bianca I'll see her tomorrow. Happy New Year!

Jack: I will and give Tom my love. Happy New Year. Bye. And, you -- thanks.

Aidan: You're welcome.

Jack: Happy New Year.

Aidan: You, too. Cheers, Jack.

Erica: I'll work with you for one common goal.

Zach: I'm looking for results same as you. Tell me about the Chandler boys. Did they know about the babies being switched?

Erica: For once, something miserable happened and Adam wasn't behind it. As a matter of fact, we would never have gotten Miranda back so easily if it hadn't been for Adam's help. He actually brought the baby to us for the DNA test and took the heat from J.R., too.

Zach: What about J.R.?

Erica: J.R. didn't even know about it until Babe left town and then he was in complete denial.

Zach: Are you sure?

Erica: Yes, I'm sure. I saw him. J.R. loved his Bess with his whole heart, and he felt so betrayed that he convinced himself that Babe lied just to punish him. Now -- look, he's completely devastated.

Zach: Chief. I'm sorry. I have an apology to make. Do you remember that surveillance disc that we were looking for the night that Adam Chandler went missing?

Derek: The disc that didn't exist?

Zach: Yeah, a funny story about that -- we just found it. One of my security people had misfiled it somewhere.

Derek: No kidding?

Zach: Yeah. It's awful. Turns out that Adam was right -- Hayward knocked him out and nailed him into a box and shipped him off to God knows where.

Erica: Well, poor David. He just can't seem to keep out of trouble.

David: Stop pacing. Just be glad that the other cells are overcrowded and you're not bunking with some lunatic.

Krystal: I'll be glad when Tad convinces Erica not to go after those kids.

David: Let's forget Erica for a minute, shall we? We need to get our statements straight.

Krystal: I'm going for the truth this time.

David: No, you're not. You're going to take back everything that you've confessed to thus far and you're going to swear that you and Babe knew nothing about the baby switch until the night before Babe left town.

Krystal: That's just going to make things worse!

David: Just hear me out. Babe got a letter from Paul Cramer that night. He confessed to everything. In your shock and your grief, you and Babe destroyed his confession and then Babe sat down and started writing letters to everybody the second that she realized that the babies had been switched.

Krystal: Who's going to buy that?

David: Look, just trust me, ok? I've been in scrapes like this before. This is the out that we need, Krystal -- for you, for me, and for Babe. Now, if you just do as I say, you're not guilty of anything, and Babe is in the clear, too.

Krystal: I can handle the truth, David, and I am ready to get whatever's coming my way. I am not going to start lying all over again.

David: You don't have a choice.

Tad: He's right.

Jack: Hmm.

Bianca: Oh, oh, I forgot to tell you.

Jack: What's that?

Bianca: Mom called. She said she's on her way.

Jack: Oh, good, good.

Lily: Bianca, I have a boyfriend.

Bianca: You do? Whoa! Wow, well, isn't that exciting news.

Jack: You have no idea.

Danielle: He's a hottie, too.

Lily: My boyfriend and I are going to be as happy as Reggie and Dani.

Reggie: Well, then you'd better live up to the hype.

Jack: Well, I have all the happiness I need right here -- you fully recovered and raring to go, Miranda back in the fold. I can't think of a better start for a new year.

Bianca: Hmm. Me, neither.

[Jack chuckles]

Bianca: Oh, Uncle Jack, I am just -- I'm so happy. I'm just so happy.

Ryan: Uh-oh.

[Ryan sees something on Kendall's computer screen that alarms him]

Greenlee: Oh, no. Ryan!

Ryan: What? What'd you find?

Aidan: All right, two --

Anita: I am known for my great timing.

Aidan: Talk about cutting it close, why don't you. Come on, let's go.

Anita: Hold on. There's something I have to lose.

[Anita removes her white coat, revealing a slinky dress]

Aidan: Wow. Happy hot damn New Year.

Krystal: You did not just tell me to lie.

Tad: Yes, I did. I'm sorry, but it's necessary. Krystal, you and David have to tell the cops something that'll keep them from going after the kids. It's no joke. If Jamie and Babe are caught, they will do time for kidnapping, and J.R. will end up with baby James, and I can't allow that. So as much as it kills me, you've got to do what he says. He may be the village idiot, but he's got a Ph.D. Guard?

[Jail cell opens and closes]

David: Guess what time it is.

Krystal: Time for me to change my wicked ways.

David: Next year is going to be much better. I swear it. Hey. Happy New Year.

Erica: Nice work, the way you hung David out to dry. You might be useful after all.

Zach: Yeah? This may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Who knows? A good way to start the new year.

Erica: Well, it has to be better than this past year. And when I think of all the wasted time, all the time that Bianca lost with her baby, time she can never get back -- no, if I've learned one thing, it's to seize the moment. It's to stand up and fight for what your heart knows or lose even more.

Zach: Happy New Year to you.

Bianca: 10 --

All: 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4 --

Jack: Count with us!

All: 3, 2, 1 -- Happy New Year!

[Cheers and noise]

Reggie: Happy New Year.

Bianca: Happy New Year, Miranda.

[Church bell tolls]

Ethan: Happy New Year, Kendall.

Kendall: Happy New Year, Ethan. I didn't -- I didn't leave my door unlocked.

Ethan: Get back. You weren't invited to this party. What the hell are you doing here?

Ryan: Here to conduct a search.

Greenlee: Million-dollar question, Kendall -- if I'm the crazy one, what are you doing with these?

[Greenlee holds up a prescription bottle she just found in one of Kendall's shoe boxes]

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

Ryan: Please tell me why you tried to kill my wife.

Anita: Maggie, you should go to the hospital. It could get worse.

Maggie: I'm fine.

Zach: 2004 didn't do either one of us any favors, and I intend to change that in 2005.
