Officer: Stay back! Stay back!
Man: What do we got, man?
Second man: Over in the corner right there, man.
Third man: He's got to be in here.
First man: Down in there, down, down, down.
Second man: I know we're close.
Ethan: I heard in the car
something about an explosion. What the hell happened?
J.R.: Wait, wait, wait -- give her a second, ok? Ryan Lavery's brother took her, Greenlee, and Lily Montgomery hostage inside that cave and rigged another bomb.
Ethan: Oh, my God.
J.R.: The women made it out safe, but Ryan and Jonathan are still -- still in there. I think the rescue crews are bringing them out right now.
[Knock on door]
Lily: I solved the case, I solved the case. I solved the case --
Erica: Reggie --
Reggie: Erica, Lily's in bad shape. She's in real bad shape.
Lily: I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case --
Reggie: She's going someplace I can't even reach. J told me to bring her here because, you know, you're -- you have the magic with her and stuff, so --
Erica: Oh, it's ok. It's ok, Reggie.
Lily: I solved the case, I solved the case --
Erica: Ok, listen, why don't you take a nice deep breath and tell me what happened? I mean, Lily is supposed to be at her school. Greenlee's supposed to be with her.
Reggie: Well, Greenlee and Kendall -- they're fine, but --
Reggie: All right, Erica, there was a bomb, right, in this cave, and the bomb went off, and then --
Reggie: Lily, please, hey --
Lily: No. I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case.
Ethan: Kendall --
Man: Pass it down, pass it down. Just keep going.
Man: Keep going now. Don't slack off.
Man: Don't slack off. We've got people down here. We're going to make it happen.
Second man: Come on.
Man: There you go.
Aidan: They're bringing him out now.
Greenlee: Is he alive?
Man: Come on, now. Come on, guys.
Greenlee: Tell me, even if he's --
Aidan: He's alive.
Greenlee: Thank God. Is he hurt?
Aidan: There's no word on his condition yet. I'm going to go find out for you.
Anita: I'll call the ER and tell them to prep for incoming.
Jack: Thanks, Anita. Greenlee, listen to me. Ryan's tough. He's going to be all right.
Greenlee: We don't know that.
Aidan: The guy you're bringing up -- how is he?
Man: I'm just muscle. You'll have to ask the EMTs.
Derek: What about his brother Jonathan?
Man: Well, there's a half a ton of rock and debris in there. We're still looking.
Ethan: You could have been killed. I could have lost you.
Ethan: She's not shaken up. It's something else.
J.R.: Well, what do you expect? She's been through hell. Just give her a little bit of time.
Di: Leave me. What? What do you want from me?
Tad: Nothing. I'm sorry. I mean it, I am so sorry. I don't know what to say. Just for a moment, I could have sworn you --
Di: What, you -- you could have sworn I was someone else. I've heard it before.
Tad: I mean it. It's the truth. I -- it must have been the fog, you know, and I saw your silhouette. I guess my eyes are playing tricks on me.
Di: Because I remind you of somebody. You men need a new line, or a group eye exam.
Tad: I -- are you ok? I apologize about that, too. I give you my word, miss, I never run around grabbing strange women -- unless they ask me.
Di: I'll let you off with a warning. Hey, do you -- do you know what that big kaboom was all about?
Tad: Yeah. Believe me, you don't want to know. It's ok. I mean, the police are here and -- they're all over it.
Di: I hope nobody was hurt.
Tad: You and me both. Listen -- but maybe you shouldn't be, you know, running around out here in the dark by yourself. The kaboom was a mineshaft explosion. Those mines run underground all over the place up here. If anything's unstable, it could give way right under your feet.
Di: I can look after myself. But thanks for the heads-up, though. Sorry I snapped.
Tad: All right, you got nothing to be sorry about. I'd better get back. Miss?
Tad: Be careful.
David: You know him. You know Tad Martin.
Lily: I solved the case. I solved the case, I solved the case, I solved the case --
Erica: Dear God, Reggie, no wonder Lily has shut down.
Reggie: Yeah, I know. You know Lily with anything loud. And amplify that bomb blast by a zillion, and this is what --
Erica: And I just, you know,
took it for granted that
Reggie: Well, Greenlee and Kendall -- they're with J. They're fine, but Lily -- she's --
Erica: Listen -- why don't you go make her some warm milk?
Reggie: Oh -- warm milk? Are you sure that's --
Erica: Mm-hmm. It'll calm her down.
Lily: I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved -- solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case.
[Relaxing music plays]
Lily: I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the cased. I solved it. I solved -- solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case. I solved the case.
Erica: Lily, I'm so glad that Reggie brought you here.
Lily: I solved the case. I solved --
Erica: Yeah, honey, you did. You -- you did. You solved the case.
Lily: I solved the case.
Erica: And it was a dangerous case. And scary.
Lily: I solved the case, I solved the case --
Erica: But you solved it. It's over. And you're safe now, Lily. So, honey, I promise you, you are safe now. And nothing can harm you. You are still scared. I know. I know you can't help it. And even though you solved the case and it's over, and the danger is past, somehow you just feel like maybe it'll come back to hurt you somehow. I know how that feels. Especially in a storm. Lily, you know what I do on those stormy nights. I take a nice, warm bath, a long one, with lots of bubbles. And I just lie there in that warm water, and I close my eyes, and I feel like I'm just floating on those bubbles. And I just lie there until all the scary bad feelings float away, too. I'm going to draw a nice, warm bath for you, too, Lily, ok? With lots of bubbles. And I'll dim the lights, and I'll play this music. And you can just lie there in that warm bubble bath until all the bad scariness floats away, until there's nothing left for you to feel but safe and warm. Ok, sweetheart, I'll be right back.
Greenlee: Ryan? Oh, God, Ryan.
Man: Let's go.
Second man: Bring him down, bring him down.
First man: All right.
Greenlee: You came back to me. You came back. Ryan. Oh, honey.
Derek: Come on, Greenlee.
Aidan: When the bomb went off, the gate fell on Ryan. It stopped him from getting crushed by the rocks.
Greenlee: You hear that, honey? You hear that? We're going to have that gate bronzed. Thank God they saved you and you're all right. I love you.
Derek: No, no, sweetheart, let the doc in.
Greenlee: I love you so much. Ryan, talk to me. It's Greenlee, talk to me. Say something.
Ryan: Jonathan -- is dead.
Anita: Greenlee, we need to examine Ryan.
Greenlee: Fine, work around me.
Jack: No, let them help him, Greenlee.
Greenlee: What are you doing?
Anita: Standard procedure.
Greenlee: He's all right. I mean, you can see that he's all right.
Anita: Ok, Ryan -- Ryan, you tell me if anything hurts, ok? BP?
Medic: 88/56. Pulse is steady.
Anita: Ok, so far, everything feels good. Ryan, anything here? Here?
Derek: You hang in there, Ryan.
Anita: Ryan, do you know where you are? Do you remember what happened inside the cave?
Jonathan's voice: Braden says that you don't get the world at your feet anymore! No more! Braden says no more. Braden said that you're going to be punished because Braden says you will never betray us again!
Tad: Glad to see you could make the party. It's better late than never. Serves you right for giving me the slip.
Anita: All right, let's get the bus ready and start two large bore IVs.
Greenlee: But he's good, right?
Anita: And we need a blanket. Ok, we'll do a head-to-toe once we get him to the hospital. What I can tell you now is his vitals are stable. He doesn't seem to have broken bones or any life-threatening injuries.
Greenlee: Well, why is he staring without saying anything? He said Jonathan was dead and then nothing.
Anita: Ryan's in shock. We'll know a lot more once we get him to the hospital and get him stabilized.
Greenlee: I'm riding with him.
Anita: No problem.
Greenlee: Ok. I'm not going to leave you, Ryan. I'm never, ever going to leave you.
Greenlee: I'm right here with you.
Aidan: It's been a hell of a night, huh?
Anita: Oh. I'm so sorry I have to make it worse. Before I left the hospital, a body was brought in to be taken to the morgue. It was -- it was Steve. Your friend -- the guy that you put on Lily and Greenlee. He was stabbed to death. I'm so sorry.
Aidan: You know what? I hope
Jonathan ends up in hell, after what he's done to all the people in
Ethan: Hey, when was the last time you ate?
Ethan: I think you need -- you need a hot shower and some food, and a nice, warm bed. Come on, I'm taking you home.
Ethan: Ok. I'll come with you.
J.R.: I heard you were hot on this case. Way to get your PI license back. People have been shot. Women have been kidnapped. Top it off, a big bomb blasts. You make our world a safer place.
Tad: I refuse to accept the fact that there's nothing left for you and me except a bunch of snarling and sarcasm, that there's no way back, no way to fix it.
J.R.: Jamie must have put you up to this. Some no-brained plot to get my son away from me and put him back into Babe's low-rent life. That's not going to happen.
Tad: This isn't about them.
It's about me, because I miss my son. I'm doing this for my sake, and yours. And
Di: I saw Tad Martin at the prison visiting Krystal, but I don't know him. And where do you get off stalking me, spying through the trees?
David: Hey, you showed up at my place, and then you just disappeared.
Di: Because you had some surprise guest. Didn't sound like a friendly party, so I made myself scarce.
David: And why'd you come back here?
Di: Because I heard the world go pop, and I wanted to check it out. Your friend said that there was some explosion. Shook the whole underground area here. We should get out of here.
David: Tad Martin is no friend of mine. But he looked at you the same exact way that I did when I first saw you, didn't he? You can't admit it?
Di: Ok. Yeah. Tad looked at me like I was a ghost. It's starting to freak me out. I don't need a bunch of guys staring me down because I remind them of some woman named after the grand old south. I have hassles to deal with -- like staying alive.
David: No one knows you're here.
Di: You know, you -- you don't know that. When I heard that blast, I'm thinking my executive ex is bombing the entire town to get rid of me. That's how bad he wants me dead. And I fell for him, trusted him, went to prison for him. God, I wish I could just take it all back, just start over. You know, I did my time. Don't I deserve a second chance? I just -- I want a life. You know -- last time -- stop staring!
David: You want a chance at a new life? I can give it to you.
J.R.: It's not going to
work, Tad. You can't use
Tad: That's not what I'm what I'm doing. Look around. I can't stop thinking about your mother because of what happened here tonight. Because this is one more stupid, pointless tragedy.
J.R.: Jonathan Lavery dying is no tragedy.
Tad: What happened in that
cave went too far. It could have been prevented. It should have been prevented,
the way your mother's death should have been prevented. But she was taken from
us before her time, and I've never gotten over it, and neither have you. And all
I've got to do is look you in the eye to know it's the truth, to know that you
feel exactly the same way I feel -- hollow, empty. Emptiness so big, sometimes
you think you're going to disappear into it. Well, guess what, kiddo -- it might
be too late for you and me to undo our mistakes, but it's not too late for us to
get past them, for us to reach out to one another, try to help to give each
other a moment's peace, maybe a sense of belonging. We're the only two people
who can do it, because nobody loved
Di: You're such a generous guy, offering me a place to crash, a new life? You know, throw in a free toaster, I might just take you up on it.
David: I am serious.
Di: I can see that. It's going to take me some kind of Svengali to give me the redo that I'm talking about.
David: Oh. My powers might amaze you.
Di: You got the flash -- I'm not sleeping with you.
David: This is all about what you want. A different life. Easiest solution -- become someone else.
Di: And you can make that happen?
David: Absolutely. I can help you morph into someone else and start over with her life.
Di: And just whose skin will I be slipping into?
David: You're a smart woman. Figure it out yourself.
Erica: Well, I'll just set this down right here. Then you can help yourself. How was your bath? I know why you're not talking. I think I know how you're feeling. The world's a scary and unpredictable place. Makes no sense. When I was just about exactly your age, something bad happened to me. And I pulled away from that world. I thought if I kept it to myself -- if I made myself invisible, I'd be safe. And I was. But I was also terribly lonely. And one day, I realized that I had stopped feeling the feelings I liked, the ones that made the corners of my mouth turn up to smile. And I wanted to get those feelings back. So I decided that I needed to learn how to handle those bad things that sometimes happen. The loud and scary things. Or I would miss out on all the beautiful feelings.
Lily: I'm cold. I don't want to be cold anymore.
Erica: Well, come get warm.
Greenlee: Wait -- why -- why not the ER?
Jack: Because it's a media circus in there, honey.
Anita: Some contusions, lacerations. Vitals are stable. No sign of serious injury.
Greenlee: He's not talking, Joe.
Jonathan's voice: If I don't, he'll do it himself!
Ryan's voice: Stop it, ok? I know who you are, and I know what you've done!
Joe: I want you to squeeze my hand as hard as you can. Good, good. Ok, ok. Nothing wrong with your grip.
Ryan's voice: You're my kid brother, the one who thought that Braden and I were just this side of God. Every smack --
Joe: His responses are good. I wouldn't rule out a concussion.
Ryan's voice: But you're sweet.
Joe: Anita, let's a get a trauma panel and a full CT.
Anita: Ok, I'll phone the orders down.
Greenlee: I want to go with him.
Jack: Yeah, just go. I'll be right here waiting for you.
Joe: Ryan, while we're getting these tests in gear, we've got a VIP suite ready and waiting. Ok, guys, let's go.
Anita: Hey, Aidan, you all right?
Aidan: I'm going to go down to the morgue to see Steve.
Anita: Well, if you can wait till Ryan's tests are done, I'll come with you.
Aidan: No, that's all right. It's fine, thank you. You know, Steve was a good man and a good friend. Maybe one day, Iíll tell you the war stories.
Ethan: You didn't say a word in the car. I want to get a doctor to check you out.
Greenlee: Watch out, Joe. He's ticklish.
Joe: Mm-hmm. Good. No peripheral nerve damage. Looks good, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Yeah, but he's still so quiet. Ryan doesn't do quiet, not like this.
Joe: Hmm. Well, as I told you, he's suffered quite a trauma. It's going to take time to get over it. But he's going to get there.
Greenlee: He killed his own brother. How will he ever get over that?
Jonathan's voice: You call me Hockett with a gun in my face. Would you pull the trigger, too? You know, you broke my heart. You're going to make me bleed? You gave me the only love I ever got. I want to trust you so much, I do. But I can't. I'm so sorry, Ryan. I love you.
Ethan: All right. Ok, ok, fine. Look, but you need some sustenance -- and I mean, more than that reheated battery acid you're drinking. Why don't you just stay here? Just stay right here. Let me go to the cafeteria. I'll get you something nice to eat, ok? Ok. One second.
Joe: Ryan, I'm happy to report that pending the other test results, you're in remarkably good shape.
Greenlee: Ryan, can you talk to me?
Jonathan's voice: I'm still there. I'm still there. I've tried so hard, Ryan. I've tried so hard, but I can't get out. And this is my only way out. This is the only way for me.
Greenlee: When I was in the psych ward, drugged out of my mind, you were there for me. You helped me. You talked me back. But don't worry. You're not near as bad as I was, but that's what I'm going to do for you, Mr. Kiddo.
Jonathan's voice: I loved you, Ryan, so much when you were there.
Greenlee: I'm going to help you out of this.
Jonathan's voice: I loved you even more when you were gone. If you could be me for just one minute -- one second -- you would see that I can't let this go.
Jack: Hey. I'm sure Ryan could use some rest and so could you. I got you the adjoining room here, so whenever you want to take a break --
Greenlee: Oh, I love I love you. I know you're worried about me, but I'm ok. It's my husband that's not.
Jack: So what can I do?
Greenlee: Go home. Be with Lily. I'll be fine, really.
Jack: You let me know if you need me, ok?
Greenlee: I will.
Derek: Is Ryan up for questioning yet?
Jack: No, he's still out of it.
Derek: I'd like to get his take on what happened.
Jack: Yeah, well, I'd like to wring his neck. Damn it, Derek, if he had just let us in before this all got so crazy, but no -- his brother, his way. Now, both my daughters and my stepdaughter-to-be have been terrorized, and it's Ryan's fault. I mean, we're damn lucky we weren't out there trying to identify body parts.
Derek: Well, just be grateful it didn't come down to that.
Jack: I'll be grateful when Greenlee slams the door on Ryan for the final time.
Jack: It's Erica. I got to get this.
Greenlee: Ryan, what are you thinking? What do you feel? Tell me.
Ryan's voice: I'm screaming inside. I am screaming inside. I want to save you so bad, it drives me crazy!
Erica: I just called your dad. He's on his way. It's still warm.
Lily: I was scared. In the cave. I tried to think about the case I was working on. But there was too much red. Too many loud noises. The noises -- they wouldn't stop and they just kept getting louder and louder and -- think about the case, thinking about the case. I tried to but --
Erica: It's ok. It's all right. It's over. And thanks to you, Lily, the case is solved. I am so proud of how brave you were. And your dad and Reggie -- I'm sure that they are proud, too. You are quite a remarkable young woman. You need to know that. Believe it. I feel so blessed that you came into my life. I feel that you're already family. And, of course, you will be, as soon as Jack and I are married. Lily, I would be so honored if you would agree to be my daughter.
Lily: My hair's wet. I need a towel to dry it. My mother used to dry my hair with the towel.
[Erica very gently pats Lily's hair dry.]
J.R.: Should I be crying, Tad? Should I have tears going down my cheeks? Is that what you want from me? Forget about all this betrayal and we go back to father and son?
Tad: I didn't say it would be easy.
J.R.: It's all so touching, you know? I mean, what do you want? You want the manly embrace? And suddenly the gag-me TV movie of the week comes to an end. Well, you forgot one scene, where you helped Babe keep my son away from me and Liza disappear with my sister.
Tad: This is the part when you're going to tell me you'll hold it against me for the rest of your life.
J.R.: Yeah, you're damn right I will. This is real life, Tad. There's no way there will ever be forgiveness between us.
Tad: Think about it, J.R. Life is hard enough and the world's lonely enough without you lending a hand.
J.R.: I've got to go prepare
a party for Colby. Yeah, that's right. Thanks to
Di: So I remind you and this
Martin guy of this
David: Of course you're not. But you're close enough to her to get the new life that you're after.
Di: As what? A
David: No, this is not an
act. You become
Di: What, just like that?
David: You get everything that you want, a chance to start over as someone else.
Di: And fool nobody. Yeah, I
may -- I may give off a whiff of
David: All right, we play up what works, and we play down what doesn't.
Di: Oh -- this isn't a put-on. You're 100% serious.
David: You get a new life -- off your criminal boyfriend's radar. And money in the bank -- my money. Lots of it.
Di: And just what do you get? There has to be a catch.
Tad: Liza, I know it sucks
but it's happened, so we're just going to have to do the best we can on the fly.
No, don't worry about
Aidan: Your dad said he'll be fine. Any word on Jonathan?
Tad: The rescue team's still at it. They say it's solid rock, no air pockets. Jonathan won't be coming out of there alive.
Greenlee: It's beyond amazing that you're alive and in one piece. Talk to me, Ryan.
Jonathan's voice: Are you happy, Ryan?
Greenlee: Anything. Just say it. It's just you and me now, ok?
Ryan's voice: Please. Please, Jonathan. Please!
Ryan: There's nothing to say. It's over. I still don't get it.
Tad: You believe that? You believe it, Dix? All this time, I thought she was you. After all this time, I'm still dreaming. I guess you can't blame me, though. Sometimes I miss you so much, I swear it's going to kill me. Not that I wouldn't give anything to make it happen. Just to be able to see you one last time. Anything.
Di: Your idea is crazy. And
just slip me into
David: Great. Your room's all ready.
David: You won't think it's crazy in the morning.
David: This can work. I can make it work.
Jack: Well, both Kendall and Greenlee are fine. Ryan's getting there, but how's Lily?
Erica: See for yourself.
Reggie: I mean, but nobody wants to admit it, but I was basically the wedding planner for J and Erica's last event. I mean, with a couple like Dad and Erica, you got to go all out.
Lily: All out. Got it. Check.
Reggie: I'm talking about rose petals, turtle doves, and the best DJ playing nothing but golden oldies.
Jack: Excuse me, did you say "golden oldies"?
Reggie: Yeah, you know, the classic 1980s and 1970s and 1960s. You know, oldies -- golden oldies.
Lily: Dad, come look at my new schedule.
Jack: Let me see what you got here. "Help plan Dad's rehearsal dinner. Candy cups, pastel colors, pink and white, lavender." No red. You do this yourself?
Erica: I asked our daughter to make up a new list to keep our wedding on track.
Jack: My God, do you know how much I love you?
Erica: I love you, too.
Erica: You -- and this beautiful family you've given me.
Greenlee: Well, Ryan's talking, which is good. But he's still in a very dark, bad place.
Ethan: Hey. I went to the cafeteria. The most exotic thing I could find was lime green Jell-O. But I asked one of the EMTs if you were ok, and he said you were healthy enough to be asking for cheeseburgers. So I called up the chef at BJís, and he rustled up a couple of these for me. So I'm going to go and stick these in the sun porch. If you two ladies want to follow me through --
Greenlee: He's giving you the five-star treatment. Which means you haven't blasted him for lying to you. Sticky situation. How are you going to handle it?
Greenlee: If I told you I was fine, you'd call me a lying bitch. I'm so scared for Ryan.
[Alone in his room, tears flow down Ryan's face as he recalls his brother's last words.]
Jonathan's voice: I'm so sorry, Ryan. I love you. You killed me.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Jack: What I'm going to do to you is going to make getting hit in the head with a shovel look like a love tap.
Sam: I decided to check out your old lover.
Ethan: I hope that you will accept this.
Greenlee: Say something to me.
