Derek: Have a seat.

Jonathan: I'm good.

Derek: Sit down.

Jack: I want him booked, I want him fingerprinted --

Ryan: And, what, drawn and quartered?

Jack: I want him arrested, Derek.

Ryan: On what charge?

Jonathan: It's his job, Ryan.

Ryan: This is not ok. This is harassment.

Jonathan: Ryan, Jack has a reason to be upset. He's Bianca's uncle. Let's get started.

Ryan: Derek, you know my brother should have a lawyer. You know that.

Derek: Relax. This is just an informal questioning.

Jonathan: The sooner we get started, the sooner I get out of here.

Man: Can I see some ID, please?

Greenlee: Who are you?

Man: I've been assigned to protect Maggie. ID, please.

Greenlee: She didn't need protecting from us.

Reggie: Yeah, we're just friends.

[Knock on door]

Man: Maggie, you've got visitors. You know these people?

Maggie: Yes, they're fine. Thank you.

Greenlee: Head start on spring cleaning?

Maggie: No, it's Jonathan's stuff. I'm just getting rid of the last of it.

Reggie: Yeah, you should burn it, that's what you should do.

Greenlee: Well, I've got the matches, but we can't start the bonfire just yet.

Maggie: Look, guys, I'm really not feeling well today, and I don't want to talk to anyone.

Greenlee: You can, Maggie, and you will. We all want it to be over, but it's not.

Jamie: Bet he's outgrown that.

J.R.: Get out.

Jamie: Well, I can help you get the one thing you want more than anything in this world. You interested?

Erica: What is she doing here?

Bianca: Mom, it's all right.

Erica: You are shameless. Haven't you hurt my daughter enough? How could you even think that it was all right to come over here?

Babe: Ms. Kane, I know what you must think --

Erica: No, you have no clue as to what I must think. I want you out of here. I want you out of my daughter's life right now. Go on, get out of here.

Bianca: Mom, Mom, back off.

J.R.: There's nothing that you could offer that I would want, except for you to leave.

Jamie: And here I always thought of you as a big-picture kind of guy.

J.R.: What, you're going to make me an offer I can't refuse? What, have you got some horse head under my pillow?

Jamie: It's not like you to pass on a deal before you've heard it. Aren't you even curious as to why I'm even here?

J.R.: Well, it's kind of late. Don't tell me -- Babe's got a headache. That's it, right? You want some tips? Oh, that's right, you don't have a platinum card. Hmm. Well, that worked every time.

Jamie: You know, I am facing time for kidnapping. But a couple more months for assault? That's not really a big deal.

J.R.: The only thing I want is my son, and you won't help me.

Jamie: And what if I will? You still ready to kick me out?

J.R.: All right, what the hell. What's your genius idea?

Jamie: Tomorrow, you drop your custody suit.

Erica: I can't believe you're defending her. Just looking at you makes me ill.

Bianca: Mom, it's all right.

Erica: No, nothing is all right as long as Babe is in our lives. Is Miranda ok?

Bianca: Yes, of course she's ok.

Erica: You lost your son, so now you're circling Miranda?

Babe: No, never.

Bianca: Mom, she would never hurt Miranda.

Babe: I love this little girl.

Erica: Like your own? Well, those days are over. You stop harassing my daughter. Get out of here. Get out of our lives. I told you to leave.

Bianca: That's not what's going on here, Mom. Babe saved me and Miranda tonight.

Erica: Saved you? From what?

Jonathan: I didn't accost Bianca. I just wanted to talk.

Derek: About the weather?

Jonathan: About Maggie, my fianc -- my ex-fiancée.

Jack: So you stalked Bianca to the Miranda Center?

Jonathan: No. Just as I was pulling up, she was heading out. I tried to catch up to her.

Jack: Oh, a woman and a baby a little too fast for you, son?

Derek: Why'd you seek out Bianca to talk about your ex-fiancée?

Jonathan: Maggie had just broken it off with me. I was torn up. I thought Bianca probably knew something.

Jack: Yeah, you blamed Bianca, didn't you?

Derek: Jackson. How did a talk turn into a situation?

Jonathan: I don't know. Bianca freaked out. She acted like she was afraid of me.

Jack: Oh, I don't believe this.

Jonathan: I tried to calm her down, but she got it into her head for some reason that I was a threat. I just wanted to talk about Maggie.

Derek: And you couldn't let her leave?

Jonathan: You know what it's like to love someone, then lose them? Maggie and I were going to be married and, out of nowhere, it's over? I couldn't deal. I wanted help.

Jack: Why don't you just answer Derek's question? Did you stop Bianca from leaving?

Jonathan: No one else could help me. I just wanted to talk to Bianca for two minutes, that's all. It wasn't a threat. I didn't trap her. I didn't lock her in. I wasn't going to hurt her. I even offered her a hammer to hold onto so she'd feel safe!

Jack: Why didn't you just let her go?

Ryan: Hey!

Jonathan: I would've! Bianca flipped out! She threatened me. She told me she'd dealt with violence before, and that's when it hit me she was flashing back to when Michael Cambias attacked her.

Jack: Or maybe it was because you had her and her baby trapped!

Ryan: Come on!

Jonathan: I was so wrapped up in my own stuff, I really wasn't aware how Bianca was feeling --

Jack: Oh --

Jonathan: Until she flipped out again. And that's when I realized that it was either the Michael Cambias thing or she hates me because Maggie and I were in love.

Maggie: Look, guys, today is probably one of the worst days of my life, or top five, anyway, ok? My relationship with Jonathan is over.

Greenlee: Maggie, Jonathan is dangerous.

Maggie: Well, Aidan and his friend are taking turns playing bodyguard outside my door. I'm safe.

Greenlee: No one else is safe. Look, you already know that I think Jonathan drugged me. Maybe he left something here. Maybe there's some evidence that he didn't destroy. All I've got is a feeling, but I need proof. I tried to get it before, but he caught me trying to hack into his computer. And then I tried with Kendall, and he busted us before we could search anything.

Reggie: Greenlee needs a few pointers on breaking and entering, but now we've got a clear shot. He's not here anymore.

Maggie: Well, what do you think, he's going to have a diary confessing everything? I highly doubt that.

Reggie: Well, maybe he was seeing a doctor, or he hooked up with a dealer or something.

Greenlee: Or maybe he's got a prescription, something. Please, will you let us look?

Maggie: Tomorrow, ok, tomorrow. You can have the entire place to yourself.

Greenlee: We can't wait. We need to look now.

Maggie: Well, now totally sucks.

Reggie: Maggie, Jonathan went after Bianca tonight.

Jonathan: As soon as I realized Bianca was freaked, I started to move away. Then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, her friend busts in, slams me with a tool cart, whacks me over the head with a board, and she obviously knocked me out because the next thing I remember, I'm on the concrete floor waking up, looking at Ryan.

Derek: Who was the friend?

Ryan: Babe.

Jonathan: And let me tell you, it was on hell of a whack. But I'm ok. I'm not going to press charges.

Jack: Oh, you are some piece of work, you know that?

Derek: So, that's it, huh? You accidentally frighten Bianca, and then Babe Chandler pulls a hit-and-run with a tool cart?

Jonathan: She misread the situation, just like Bianca, but I can't blame her, the way Bianca was overreacting.

Jack: Do you take responsibility for any of this?

Jonathan: Most of it. My judgment was horrible. I should've known, with Bianca's past, that being left alone with a man may cause her to overreact. I'm sorry for that.

Ryan: So we done here?

Jack: No, we're not quite done yet. One more question -- what's your excuse for poisoning Greenlee?

Jonathan: No excuse, because I didn't poison Greenlee.

Jack: Well, maybe that was just in her head, kind of like the thing with Bianca, huh?

Jonathan: My sister-in-law doesn't like me. We went sideways months ago. Ever since then, she thinks I want her gone.

Jack: Was she wrong about that?

Ryan: Hey, my brother came here willingly to discuss what happened tonight with Bianca, not to be accused for every unsolved crime in Pine Valley.

Jack: Only one, and there's a real short suspect list.

Jonathan: How about Kendall? She had the motive, the opportunity, the drugs.

Jack: What are you talking about? What -- what drugs?

Derek: You knew about this?

Ryan: Greenlee and I searched Kendall's condo. We found the same antipsychotics that somebody fed Greenlee, but Kendall claims that they were planted there.

Derek: Ryan, how could you sit on this? You should've brought the evidence down here immediately! Kendall should've been brought in, we should've questioned her, there should've --

[Pager beeps]

Derek: Nobody leave.

Jack: I want to talk to you privately.

Jonathan: I'm not going anywhere.

Jack: I tell you right now, I want him locked up.

Ryan: Well, that's not your call, is it?

Jack: Ryan, I like you, but his being your brother, that does not give him immunity.

Ryan: Jackson, I hate what happened as much as you do, obviously, but I've seen Bianca. She's ok.

Jack: Oh, is she? She's ok? Well, you know what, that's not nearly good enough.

Ryan: It was ugly, but it's over, all right? My brother is not a psycho. He's a guy -- he's got some issues with anger and with women, but I'm getting him help.

Jack: He hit Maggie, he terrified Bianca, God knows what he did to Greenlee. I don't care about his issues. He's a menace!

Ryan: Wait a minute, have you even spoken to Bianca? No? Maggie, Babe, anybody? So all you know is what Lily and Reggie told you? You don't know anything. You don't know anything about my brother -- nothing!

Jack: Maybe you don't know him as well as you think you do, because you told me your other brother, Braden, was innocent, but he was guilty as hell, now, wasn't he?

Ryan: Jonathan is not Braden. And, yes, he's got problems, and he knows he has problems, and he knows he has to get help. Just give the guy a chance.

Jack: Yeah, how long should I give him, huh? Until he really hurts somebody I love?

Ryan: You got nothing, Jackson! You don't have any proof, you don't have any evidence!

Jack: No, no, not yet. But that doesn't mean I won't find some.

Reggie: I mean, Bianca's ok, except for the part that Jonathan scared her half to death.

Maggie: You're sure that he didn't hurt her?

Reggie: I promise, he didn't touch her.

Maggie: My God. Where is Jonathan now?

Reggie: He won't be knocking on your door anytime soon. He's down at the station being drilled by Chief Frye.

Greenlee: Maggie, I -- I get that you don't want to talk about Jonathan, but you lived together. Maybe you picked up on something. I mean, you know him better than any of us.

Maggie: That's just it, Greenlee -- I don't know him at all. Everything that he said to me was a lie. I believed all of his lines, the same lines that he told someone else, God knows how many someone elses. So if you need clues about Jonathan, I am not the person to talk to.

Greenlee: I'm sorry he treated you so badly.

Maggie: I need to get some air.

Reggie: You should bring your bodyguard with you.

Maggie: Don't worry about that. I'm fine no matter where I go.

Greenlee: You go through the pockets, I'll start with the papers.

Reggie: I'd rather go a few rounds with Jonathan rather than sniffing through his dirty clothes.

Greenlee: Forget his clothes. I think I found something.

Jamie: I know you're not calling your lawyer.

J.R.: No, actually, I'm deciding whom to call. Depends -- are you being stupid or are you high? I mean, you really think you can come in here, ask me nicely, and I drop my custody suit?

Jamie: Why don't you just hear me out?

J.R.: When this is gone, so are you.

Jamie: Well, as it stands, you, Babe, and Kevin are suing for sole custody. I want you and Babe to drop your individual suits and sue for joint custody.

J.R.: You are out of your mind.

Jamie: Hey, when Babe gets on that stand, she's going to decimate you. You know Bess wasn't yours and you kept her anyway. You drugged Babe, you blackmail her to give up Bess. None of those are daddy material.

J.R.: Oh, come on, James. You and I both know Babe's not the most credible witness. You're going to have to do better than that.

Jamie: It's not just Babe. You nearly killed me in Florida. Kendall will testify to that and so will I. And there's the whole Bianca-over-the-balcony thing.

J.R.: That was an accident. Nice try, though, Jamie. You can't scare me away that easily, especially when it's my turn to shred Babe from the stand.

Jamie: Well, then what, you and Babe rip each other apart? You'll both look like unfit parents and Kevin will win.

J.R.: Have you not been paying attention? I'm that baby's biological father, not Kevin.

Jamie: Just because you share DNA doesn't mean that you get a chance to raise your son. I mean, the courts could decide that the lieutenant governor is the best choice out of all of you. I mean, think about what my dad said -- we're family. Like it or not, you, me, and Babe, we're connected through this little boy. So let's stop treating him like a trophy and do what's best for him.

J.R.: I'm what's best for my son.

Jamie: Get a clue, J.R. You have to decide what's more important -- hurting Babe or being part of your son's life. There's only one answer -- joint custody.

J.R.: How is Babe supposed to have custody behind bars?

Jamie: Well, we'll cross that when we get there. Right now, we can team up, and we can get that little boy from Buchanan.

J.R.: What, did Babe put you up to this?

Jamie: Babe knows nothing about this.

J.R.: Wow, secrets already.

Jamie: I didn't want to get her hopes up. Once you're onboard, I'll tell her everything.

J.R.: There's a big glitch, though. Babe's all about fighting to the death, remember? What makes you think that she will play on the same team?

Jamie: Babe is smart enough to look past the fact that you're a jerk and work something out.

J.R.: For my son's sake?

Jamie: Yeah, it's too bad he doesn't have a vote. If you're in, we have to move fast. I'll be in touch.

Babe: It was really no big deal.

Erica: Oh, right, play the modesty routine.

Babe: Why don't I just let Bianca tell you.

Bianca: Miranda's asleep.

Erica: Bianca, I want you to get a restraining order against Babe.

Bianca: Mom, that's not necessary.

Babe: I -- I should really get going.

Erica: Yes, you really should, and you never should have come over here.

Bianca: Oh, Babe?

Erica: Sweetheart, listen to me -- I know that you have a soft spot in your heart for strays, but please do not let Babe get back into your life. She'll only wind up using you again.

Bianca: I haven't forgiven Babe -- not even close.

Erica: Bianca, please just promise me you won't allow Babe to wiggle her way back into your life.

Bianca: Ok, I promise. I already nixed it. I could've helped her get her son back and I didn't.

Erica: Well, of course you didn't. And it's outrageous that she would even have the gall to ask.

Bianca: Actually, she didn't ask. Jamie asked, and Babe apologized that he hurt me.

Erica: Oh, they're a team. They're playing you.

Bianca: No, they're -- if that were true, when I said no, she would've begged me to change my mind, or she would've held a mean grudge. That's what anybody else would do, that's what I would do, but she didn't. And before that, she did something completely unselfish. She could've just walked away, but she didn't.

Erica: Bianca, what in the world happened tonight?

[Knock on door]

Greenlee: I've tried every flipping number on this page, every single one disconnected. I mean, they must be important. They're all underlined. But what's with the disconnect?

Reggie: I don't know, maybe it's a trail or a clue or something.

Greenlee: That all the people that Jonathan hangs with don't pay their phone bills?

Reggie: I don't know, maybe -- well, dealers change their number more than they do their underwear. Maybe Jonathan bought the magic drugs from a dealer, not a doctor. Makes sense.

Ryan: Jackson, I understand that you're frustrated. I mean, so am I. I'm as angry as you. I want to find whoever hurt Greenlee as badly as you do, and, believe me, when we do, that guy better be straight in prison, because if I find him myself, I'll take him out.

Jack: And I understand that you love your brother, and that's just fine, but don't let that blind you to what he's capable of.

Ryan: Give it up, Jackson. You don't have anything.

Jack: I'm not trying to find a scapegoat here. You know what I'm trying to do? I'm trying to protect my daughter! I'm trying to protect your wife!

Ryan: You remember when Greenlee was in the hospital --

Jack: Yeah.

Ryan: And you said that you believed me that I loved her and that I would take care of her?

Jack: I'm still trying to believe that.

Ryan: Trust me, because nobody loves Greenlee more than I do. I would do anything to keep her safe. I would risk everything to protect her. If I thought for one nanosecond that my brother could hurt her, I wouldn't let him anywhere near her.

Jack: All right, let me ask you a question. If you had evidence that he drugged Greenlee, then what?

Ryan: I will turn the key on his cell door myself.

Derek: This just came in. You should check it out. Your brother has a police record.

[Incensed, Ryan confronts his brother in the interrogation room.]

Ryan: You son of a bitch.

Reggie: This is a waste of time!

Greenlee: We're not going anywhere until we find something.

Reggie: What is this? Even if it's lint? "Lee googlee"? "Lee googloo"? I don't know.

Greenlee: "Le goulue."

Reggie: Yeah, French. Yeah, figus. He looks like a frog-legs-and-brains type of guy.

Greenlee: I've never heard of it. It's not in Pine Valley or Center City. No address or phone number.

Reggie: Maybe it's one of those clubs that's so exclusive, nobody knows where it is.

Greenlee: I'll check it out later.

Reggie: We need check out of here now. I still have time to stomp on Jonathan's face.

Greenlee: When did Jonathan come to Pine Valley?

Reggie: Pine Valley? I don't know, like, sometime last summer.

Greenlee: End of June, I think. He's got three entries for June, just the letter B. Weird, huh?

Reggie: B? I mean, that could mean anything -- Bill, Bob? Or Bianca.

Maggie: Look, if you want to shut the door in my face, I understand.

Bianca: Maggie, come in.

Maggie: Oh, I'm sorry. If you guys are in the middle of something, I can go.

Bianca: Mom?

Erica: Honey, I really need to know what happened with Babe.

Bianca: Ok.

Erica: Ok.

Maggie: Look, Greenlee and Reggie told me that Jonathan went after you, so I had to come here and find out that you were all right. You're all right?

Bianca: Yeah, I'm ok. He scared me, and he was pretty out of control, but then Babe showed up and saved the day.

Maggie: I'm just happy that you're ok, because if he had done anything to you --

Bianca: Well, I was worried about you. When I heard that you broke up with him, I was sure that he would go after you.

Maggie: He can't. Not anymore. Plus, I have Aidan and his bud playing bodyguard, and his friend knows jujitsu or something like that. I'm so sorry.

Bianca: It is not your fault.

Maggie: I was horrible to you, and I said a lot of hurtful things. And Jonathan went after you because of me, and it's all my fault.

Bianca: Maggie, I'm the one who owes you an apology. Those things that I said to you about how I feel, I -- I shouldn't have said them. I shouldn't have kissed you.

Maggie: So then it was all a lie? I mean, you said those things to keep me from Jonathan?

Bianca: No. Everything I said was true.

Ryan: Why didn't you tell me?

Jack: No, no, no, let him go. Maybe he'll get the truth out of this guy.

Ryan: How many chances did I give you? How many times did I ask you to come clean and how many times did you lie to me? Know what this is? This is your arrest record for the assault of Lorraine Rossiter. Assault! Jonathan, what, you just forgot to tell me this?

Jonathan: I never -- I never knew how to tell you about --

Ryan: So you lied? Just once, you said, with Maggie. You cried. I believed you! I defended you to Greenlee, to the entire town. Man, I thought I was the one guy that you could be honest with, and you play me?

Jonathan: I was ashamed, Ry. I didn't want to be a disappointment! That was Dad's line -- I'd disappoint him -- and I was just so afraid that you were going to feel this way. I didn't -- I didn't know how to tell you. I was afraid that you'd boot me out of your life again, I'd lose you all over again.

Jack: So that's it. He's got a prior conviction for violence against a woman. You've got to charge him.

Derek: I can't. It's not enough.

Jack: Oh, come on, he assaulted the Rossiter woman, he assaulted Maggie, he went after Bianca.

Derek: Look, Jack, Jack, as surprising as this may sound to you, it still doesn't make a case.

Jack: Oh, you know what, don't you condescend to me. If Bianca had ended up in the hospital, then you'd have your case, right, huh?

Derek: I will take her statement tomorrow, ok? If she has anything to tell us, then it will be my pleasure to book this guy, ok?

Jack: What about my daughter, huh? What if he drugged her?

Derek: Evidence, Jack. I need evidence! You know that, counselor.

Jack: I know we have to get this guy off the street. Lock him up, Derek. Find a way.

[Jamie finds Babe crying over photos of her son and physically comforts her.]

Erica: J.R.?

J.R.: Erica. Oh, come in, please.

Erica: He's darling.

J.R.: Yeah.

Erica: I think he has your chin.

J.R.: Yeah? Yeah, he does. It's kind of late. What brings you by?

Erica: I want to help you get your son back.

Greenlee: Maybe it's a location. Boston or Broadway?

Reggie: Bellevue?

Greenlee: Perfect place for Jonathan.

Reggie: No offense, but I thought you were going to call it home sweet home for a little bit.

Greenlee: Watch it, Reginald.

Reggie: I'm just speaking the truth. You had us all freaked out.

Greenlee: I was pretty freaked myself.

Reggie: You? You should have seen Jack. Oh, he was a case. He tried to play tough for Lily and me, but I could tell. I could see right through it. He was rocked.

Greenlee: I had no idea.

Reggie: Well, get a clue. You're Jack's kid, and he's going to worry. Now he has to take of Jonathan.

Greenlee: Well, he shouldn't. It's not his battle.

Reggie: You're crazy if J's not going to take this on.

Greenlee: I can take care of myself.

Reggie: Look, you don't have to. That's the beauty part. J's on your side, and he's not going to rest until he's nailed Jonathan or whatever punk drugged you.

Jack: Can't you at least hold him on suspicion?

Derek: We'll get Bianca down here tonight and give it a shot. That's the only way.

Jack: No, I am not going to do that to her! She's been through enough, Derek.

Jonathan: You hate me.

Ryan: No, I do not. I'll never cut you out of my life. You're my brother, and I love you, and that is the bottom line.

Derek: Ok, Lavery, you're free to go.

Jonathan: Great.

Derek: I want you back down here tomorrow after we have a chance to get Bianca's statement.

Jonathan: I'll be here.

Ryan: Ok, let's go.

Jack: Don't take him to your house. I don't want him anywhere near Greenlee.

Ryan: I have a room for him at the Valley Inn. I'll make sure he's back here tomorrow.

Bianca: What I meant was I shouldn't have dumped my feelings on you. Like you didn't have to deal with already. I mean, life isn't crazy enough? Here, juggle this, too.

Maggie: Don't apologize for being honest.

Bianca: I could have been a little bit more sensitive.

Maggie: Like when I went off on you?

Bianca: I've heard worse.

Maggie: Look, when you told me that you loved me, I didn't want to hear it. Just like I didn't want to hear what you had to say about Jonathan.

Bianca: Nobody wants to believe the person they love could be --

Maggie: Toxic? I just wanted to believe that he was a great guy, and I shut out anything that didn't fit in that picture in my head. God, I mean, I was an idiot.

Bianca: You're -- you're kind and loving and trusting. There's nothing stupid about that. You weren't the first person that got sucked into Jonathan's orbit.

Maggie: Great, I'm a victim.

Bianca: Not anymore you're not.

Maggie: I should've thrown him out the night that he slapped me. But he was so hurt. It was like he could hurt more than I ever could. And it was only that one time.

Bianca: Which was one time too many.

Maggie: I know. I know that now. But he always so sweet and loving and thoughtful. It was like he could read my mind. I mean, he was the only one who remembered the anniversary of Frankie's death.

Bianca: Well, that's not true. I -- I sent you that letter.

Maggie: I never got your letter.

Bianca: Wow. I gave it to Jonathan to give to you.

Maggie: I bet you he read it and shredded it up. God, I -- how could I not know?

Bianca: Maggie, talk to me.

Maggie: It wasn't me. It wasn't me, the woman who was with Jonathan, the one who waited for him to come home, the one who shut everybody out, the one who wore what he wanted, changed her hair like he wanted. It was like I was under his spell.

Bianca: The spell's broken. You're free.

Maggie: "Free." What's "free"? I don't even know who I am anymore.

Bianca: You're going to figure it out. All you need is a little time.

Maggie: Yeah, a few eons should do it.

Bianca: Maggie, what I said about -- about us -- I just want you to know our friendship comes first, and anything else -- it's going to work itself out.

Jonathan: What a day and a night. Thanks for sticking by me.

Ryan: Hey, I want to ask you a question, and I'd like you to tell me the truth.

Jonathan: Ask.

Ryan: I watched you give your statement, and, you know, if I didn't know Bianca, and I didn't know you, I would've bought it. You pushed Bianca's buttons, you know, by mistake. She overreacted because of her history. The problem is, is that I've seen that routine before with Dad.

Jonathan: Can we not do the family history right now?

Ryan: Hey, I don't like going back, either, but I got deja vu tonight, Jonathan. You know, back then, you figured out a way to look innocent to avoid getting the life kicked out of you. And, you know, me, too. I scammed my way out of the belt. That's how I got by after I left home.

Jonathan: I know we're twisted.

Ryan: That's how we survived. But here it's just -- it's just you and me, nobody else. Nobody else listening, nobody else judging us.

Jonathan: So what's your question?

Ryan: You knew. You knew you were scaring Bianca, didn't you? You did it on purpose.

Jonathan: Yes. I knew I was scaring Bianca.

Ryan: Why?

Jonathan: Ryan, she's been trying to break Maggie and me up for so long. A few days ago, Maggie loved me. I was it, I was the only one, and now I'm scum. Bianca finally got her way. Bianca the good, Bianca the pure, and I'm the dregs. That's what I get.

Ryan: How did it get out of control, Jonathan?

Jonathan: I don't know. Ryan, I went down there to talk to her. I was totally civilized, and -- and she assumed the worst about me, like everyone else in this town. I don't understand why they just snap to judge me. Why can't they mind their own business? Why can't they leave me alone?

Ryan: You know it's not that simple.

Jonathan: I can't do this, ok? I can't. I'm beat. I'm going to take a shower.

Greenlee: I hate this. Nothing but disconnected numbers, meaningless Bs, and a matchbook of matches, and why hasn't Ryan called?

Reggie: Well, he's probably still at the police station, all right? How are you guys?

Greenlee: Fine.

Reggie: Couldn't be better, right? You want to talk about it? I'm a great listener.

Greenlee: No true confessions. Ryan and I are going to get through this. We're going to be perfect again. We're going to be better than perfect. We're going to be better than ever.

Reggie: Ok, I believe you. So now what?

Greenlee: I'm going to go raid Jonathan's medicine cabinet. You in?

Reggie: Wouldn't miss it.

Bianca: Two of mankind's greatest inventions -- rocky road and butter pecan.

Maggie: Mmm. Now all we need is that amazing chocolate sauce that you always have around.

Bianca: Hmm. I'm fresh out. I don't know, I think we'll survive.

Jamie: I made my best case to J.R. I don't know if he'll go for it.

Babe: He should. You're absolutely brilliant. The only way for us to make sure that baby James doesn't become Ace Buchanan is for J.R. and me to team up together. And then that way, even if I do go to prison, I'll still have a right to see him.

Jamie: Don't worry, Babe. Somehow we're going to be a family again.

J.R.: Wow. It's literally raining help tonight. But thanks, I don't think you can help.

Erica: Have you seen me on a witness stand?

J.R.: Yes, I have. You pack a punch.

Erica: And I am loaded this time. I will tell the judge and everyone who will listen exactly the torture that Babe put you through, and I will tell everyone what a fabulous father you were to that baby you thought was yours; and I will tell them exactly how painful it was for you to have to give that baby up, and why your son belongs with you and nowhere else. And I know that Kendall will speak on your behalf, too.

J.R.: Hmm. You know, if Bianca finds out about this, though, she's going to be furious. She's not exactly a fan of mine these days.

Erica: I will handle Bianca. But right now, we've got to get your son back, and we have got to get Babe out of our lives.

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

Jamie: Are you ready to work with me and Babe?

J.R.: I'm getting there.

Greenlee: Tell Ryan the truth. I will help you if you let me.

Ryan: I can save my brother, Maggie -- don't put him in jail.

Krystal: I'm hoping to go to prison so that you can go free.

Bianca: Jailhouse gets a new inmate tonight.
