Di: There is no Di Kirby. I'm Dixie Cooney.

Adam: Ha! You -- you are absolutely unbelievable. You have been completely exposed, and now you're still trying to con us.

Di: It's not a con, Adam.

Krystal: I asked you if you were Dixie. You told me flat out you weren’t. And now you're saying that you are. It just smells like a big old pile of lies to me. You are no more Dixie than I am!

Erica: Greenlee, I know how you must feel.

Greenlee: I'm fine, Erica. Just leave this be.

Erica: It's amazing and difficult and complicated. So if you'd rather not, I'd be happy to tell them.

Ryan: Tell us what? What? Greenlee, you ok?

Greenlee: I'm terrific. I -- Erica --

Kendall: It's bad sushi. I told you that.

Jack: Greenlee, what's Erica talking about?

Ryan: Whatever it is, I'd like to hear it right now.

Di: I told you I wasn't Dixie, because I didn't want my family to know that I'd done time.

Krystal: Oh, hello? I told you if you were Dixie, I wouldn't tell anybody about your prison term.

Di: Yeah, I should've trusted you. I was wrong. I've been wrong about a lot of this.

Adam: Oh, the sympathy card. Won't work.

Di: I thought I could do this without hurting the people I love; but, J.R., I swear, I'm still your mother.

[When Di reaches out to J.R., he pulls back.]

Erica: Tonight is about new beginnings and family, our family. What better way to celebrate than to share our own new beginnings?

Kendall: No, Mother, this is really not the way to celebrate.

Erica: Listen, I'm not suggesting that we trot this out onstage in front of the press. Of course not. This is way too important. We would keep this within our own family.

Greenlee: No. No, no, no, no, no.

Lily: Greenlee's OOC.

Reggie: "OOC"?

Lily: That means "Out Of Control." You should do the counting, remember?

Ryan: Greenlee, whatever it is, just tell me. Erica, what is going on?

Jack: Yeah, I'd kind of like to hear the answer to that myself.

Erica: It's really good news.

Zach: Not -- not now. Greenlee isn't feeling well, so Kendall and I are going to take her home. Come on, let's go.

Kendall: Come on.

Ryan: What? No, you know what, if my wife needs to go home, I will take her, thank you.

Erica: Ok, hold on, Ryan. Ryan, you and Greenlee are so important to me. I want you to be just as happy as Jack and I are, only just recently things have been a little difficult for you.

Jack: Look, maybe we should let Ryan and Greenlee --

Erica: I mean, with your doubts about having a family of your own, I mean, your concerns, what relationship wouldn't suffer? But our good news really will go such a long way to healing that.

Ryan: Stop. I don't need your help. And if you're saying what I think you're saying, I don't want any part of it.

Erica: Ryan, having a family of your own is one of the most important decisions you could ever make. You have to give the idea a chance.

Greenlee: Erica, shut up.

Ryan: Why, good publicity for the new project, Erica? Want to boost ratings a little bit?

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, take it down a notch, Ryan.

Ryan: You want to parade my private life around, some sort of hype for the new show, is that what's going on?

Erica: Ryan, this is not about my show. This is about you.

Ryan: I'm fine, Erica! Look, you're into family, and I think that's great. You're into kids. That's great. But there's nothing that you can say to make me change my mind. I mean, nothing. I won't reverse the procedure. This is so out of line! Are we done?

Erica: Look, there was not meant to be any pressure on you, just -- just love. I just thought that the news would help you understand the joy.

Kendall: Mother, can you not see that Ryan is all out of joy right now? No, I told you to leave it alone, but you had to go ahead and push and open your mouth.

Erica: Because I just thought it would be best to get it out in the open.

Greenlee: Ok. Then let me do the honors and finish what you started. The news that she's so excited about? It's a real bombshell, isn't it, Erica, Jack?

Erica: Greenlee, you know very well what I'm talking about.

Greenlee: Exactly. Do you want me to spill the big news? Ok, let's do it right now. Let's do it Erica style.

Kendall: Greenlee, are you sure?

Greenlee: Hurry up, people! I can't make the big announcement without you! Can I have your attention, please? We have an announcement to make! As you know, family is very important to Erica and Jack, and the family they love so much is about to get bigger. That's right, you heard it here first -- Erica Kane is pregnant.

[Reporters murmur]

Di: I was confused about how to come back into your lives, what was the best way, the way that would cause the least amount of damage.

Adam: And so you threw all those options out and went with this one? You're a fraud.

Tad: Let her finish.

Di: I couldn't face telling you I was alive from inside of a prison. Thought I maybe should wait, get out, and then decide what to do. Krystal changed everything.

Krystal: Ok, don't you drag me into this.

Di: I'm just saying you put my past into my face. All the people I was trying to avoid -- David, J.R., Tad -- they came to visit you, and the more I heard about them, the more I saw them -- I had to do something.

Adam: How long do we have to listen to this?

Tad: Until she's through.

Di: When David hatched his crazy scheme, I saw my chance.

Jamie: If you were Dixie, why not be straight with us?

Di: Well, I figured the shock of me being alive would be enough for you all to deal with. With David’s plan, I could ease my way back in. You know, I had to still make sure that you all weren't better off without me. Plus, I wouldn't have to tell you-all I'd done time on top of everything else.

Babe: So that night, waiting for the bus -- was it true what I saw? Did someone try to run you down and kill you?

Di: No, I -- I really don't think so.

Tad: What do you mean, you don't think? Is there a chance she's right?

Di: Yes, there's a chance.

Adam: I'm sure if you ask her real nice, she'll tell us the whole story.

Tad: Shut up.

Krystal: Ok, wait, wait.

Adam: Drop dead.

Krystal: Here's a question -- why was Dixie in jail?

Di: When I got back to the States, there was a -- a man. And before I could realize he wasn't who I quite thought he was --

Adam: A lot of that going around.

Di: Well, I was in too deep. Turns out he was being investigated by the grand jury. And they thought that I could give them the evidence that they needed, so they subpoenaed me to testify against him. I did time instead for contempt.

Babe: So this man is still after you, and you put my son in the danger zone? Did you not even care what happened to him?

J.R.: Oh, why don't you just shut up, Babe?

Jamie: Watch your mouth. She has every right to be mad.

Di: Last I heard, he'd disappeared, left the country.

Adam: Along with anyone else who could back up this preposterous story. Lady, you've had a good run, but it's over. You're finished. I'm calling the police.

J.R.: No, no, no, not until we find out all the facts.

Adam: All the facts? She'll tell you anything you want to know, anything that'll save her hide. Let's end it now.

Tad: I'm with J.R. Let's get it all out. How many more lies have you got?

Reggie: Congratulations, Jack, you work fast! A baby?

Val: It's genius! You're having your very own new beginning!

Erica: Val, no, not now.

Val: You can bring the little nugget to work, and I'll babysit for free.

Erica: Val, there's been a misunderstanding.

Ryan: Excuse me. Excuse me! Leave Greenlee and me out of this. I do not like to be pushed, Erica.

Erica: Ryan, talk to your wife. She dragged us all into this.

Kendall: Mother, let this go.

Ryan: My life with Greenlee is off-limits! It's not an episode for your show! If you can't respect that --

Jack: Can't respect that, what, Ryan, what? Just settle down, will you, huh?

Ryan: Back off, Jackson.

Greenlee: Ryan, it's ok.

Ryan: Get out!

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Woman: I can't see your eyes, honey.

[A reporter wearing a red dress walks up to Lily and rips her sunglasses off.]

Lily: No, don't! Red!

Woman: You're Erica’s stepdaughter, aren't you?

Lily: Red, red! Go away!

Woman: You must be excited, a new baby in the family.

Lily: Go away, please!

Woman: Is this some sort of game? All I want is a statement, something for Erica’s fans. Sweetie --

Lily: Red. Don't touch me!

Jack: Lily, Lily, Lily, it's all right. Can't you see she's upset?

Reporter: I only asked her about --

Jack: Don't ask her! Just give her some space, all right? Just -- just back off. And give me the sunglasses. What's the matter with you, anyway?

Reporter: Well, what about the happy Daddy-to-be? Any comments?

Jack: Yeah, get lost. Come on, honey, put these on, it'll be ok.

Josh: No, this is not part of the party schedule. Will you be okay if I go and try and salvage some things?

Danielle: Yeah, go ahead. Oh, my God! Reggie!

[Jealous of Josh’s closeness with Danielle, Reggie spins him around and socks him in the face.]

Jack: Reggie!

Danielle: Josh, are you ok?

Josh: Some kind of right hand.

Danielle: What did you do that for?

Reggie: Come on, let's go. Let's go!

Erica: Ok, everyone, thank you so much each and every one of you, for your very, very kind comments, but I am not pregnant.

[Reporters murmur]

Zach: That's my new family. Can't you just feel the love?

Di: It all just got away from me. I didn't know how to stop it, to fix it.

Tad: Sure you did. You told one lie after another after another. First, you were Dixie the survivor who was so damaged you figured it was best if we all thought you were dead. Then you're Diana, the nanny who spies on us from the inside to figure out whether or not we're worth coming back to. Then after you're outed, oh, yeah, sure, you're Dixie, but you're back on your own terms and to hell with anybody who doesn't agree with them. Now lo and behold, Krystal shows up, and guess what -- you're a whole new, improved Dixie, but you're so embarrassed about shacking up with some crime boss you're spouting a whole new set of lies? Well, which one is it? Door number one, door number two, or three? Or maybe Adam’s right, maybe it's none of the above, and you're just some soulless con artist who's on David’s payroll.

Di: I know you're angry.

Tad: Damn right I am! All you have done since you showed up is tear my family apart with your sick little game of Three-Card Monte, and I'm tired of it. All I want to know, is my ex-wife alive, or did she die three years ago?

Di: Only one way to find out. You've been yelping about a DNA test since day one. Let's do it. Right now.

Jack: Look, just count with me, ok? 100 --

Lily and Jack: 99, 98, 97 --

Jack: That's it, that's it.

Lily: Red. Red!

Jack: It's all right, Lily. Honey, honey, it's all right.

Reporter: What is wrong with her? Is it drugs?

Jack: No, it's you. You are loud, you are rude, and you are insensitive. Sweetie --

Lily: 99, 98 --

Reporter: This is on the record.

Jack: All right, on the record, you're also obnoxious and offensive. Now, stay away from my daughter! Get the hell out of here!

Lily: 98 --

Jack: Sweetheart, it's going to be all right, ok?

Lily: 99, 100 --

Jack: This is going to be over soon, I promise, I promise -- I hope.

Erica: Actually, this is just a sign of things to come on my new show, on "New Beginnings," because emotions run high and people get excited, and who knows what's going to happen next? But I can promise you that you will always find the unexpected on "New Beginnings." Besides, do I look pregnant?


Zach: So, no little step-siblings for me?

Erica: Oh, you know what, you in my face -- I don't need this. Go away.

Greenlee: You ok?

Ryan: I'm fine. I'll be better as soon as this kicks in. What was that about, her big announcement?

Greenlee: I just wanted to shut Erica up.

Ryan: What? What is it? What's going on with you people? Why would you do that? I mean, yes, it's the wrong place, wrong time. I blew it, I understand. But nobody -- nobody gets it. Nothing is going to change my mind about having kids -- nothing. Not even Erica Kane. Nobody. Look, I'm going to go. I'll see you at home.

Greenlee: I'll catch up as soon as I can.

Ryan: Everything's going to be fine, ok?

Lily: 32, 31 --

Jack: That's it, honey. You just keep counting, all right, sweetheart? You're doing great, ok? Good.

Lily: 29, 28, 27 –

Erica: Greenlee just has a really twisted sense of humor.

Reporter: Mm-hmm.

Erica: Oh, that's off the record.

Reporter: Well --

Erica: Excuse me. Kendall, what was Greenlee thinking? What was that all about?

Zach: I don't know. Self-preservation, maybe?

Kendall: Mother, I warned you.

Erica: Why would Greenlee do something like that?

Zach: Wait a second, now you want Kendall’s advice on something, you want her opinion? Why didn't you take it when she offered it when she asked you to steer clear of Ryan and Greenlee?

Erica: Do you have to be here?

Zach: Do you have to meddle in your children's lives?

Erica: You know something? Some people can have a very fabulous and fulfilling life and still help their children. Of course, you would know nothing about that.

Zach: Good, then keep helping your children with your good intentions and help Greenlee right into a divorce or worse.

Kendall: Mom, Zach is right. You've got to let Greenlee do this by herself, alone and privately, not on a break from your party.

Erica: A child is about family and hope and the future, and Ryan needs to believe in that now more than ever. We can help him get there.

Kendall: Mother, please, please, I'm begging you, do not tell Jackson -- please. He's going to blow up before Ryan even knows what hit him. Just let Greenlee handle this alone, please? Ok, this is hopeless. I need some air, now.

Jack: So do we have a blessed event in our future or not?

Erica: Don't even. No, that was just Greenlee’s latest nonsense.

Jack: So what was all that talk back on the yacht? I mean, if it's not our new beginning, then whose is it?

Erica: Oh, no one’s. No one's at all. I mean, I just got carried away.

Jack: Erica, what the hell's going on here?

Erica: Well, why don't you ask Reggie? Because he just punched my supervising producer.

Jack: I'll talk to Reggie about that at home, which is where I'm taking Lily, because there's just been a little too much excitement for everyone I think, ok? I'll see you there.

Erica: Ok.

Adam: You will submit to a DNA test without being hogtied?

Di: You heard me. It's the only way to settle this.

Adam: All right, let's do it before she changes her mind -- or her identity.

Di: That's not going to happen. I know who I am, and there's only one way to prove it to all of you.

Adam: You heard her. Let's go up to the house, get things organized.

David: I can handle that. I can --

Adam: No, you will do nothing.

Tad: Neither will you. I'll set it up.

Di: J.R., there's -- there's nothing to worry about. Trust me.

Babe: What is she up to?

Adam: If you and your daughter jerk me around again, you're going to be back in the slammer by morning.

Krystal: Adam, do you think I'm working this voodoo? If I had that kind of power, I would've wiggled my nose a long time ago and gotten out of prison.

Adam: I will not let the two of you con me again.

Krystal: Hand to God, Adam, I do not know what's going on with that Dixie/Di -- whoever the heck she is.

David: DNA test, huh? Are you out of your mind?

Di: They want the truth. That's what they're going to get.

David: That's very funny, considering your truth seems to change so often.

Di: David, you almost had it right. The day at the hospital when you found out I had only one kidney? You thought I was Dixie. Well, surprise, surprise, you were right. Looks like I've been using you as much as you used me.

David: Sure you have.

[After David walks away, Di turns to Tad who’s been watching them.]

Di: I'm sorry our memorial was interrupted. What you said about Kate was beautiful. Thank you.

Erica: Thank you!

Reporter: It was very interesting.

Erica: Oh, I'm so glad. Thank you very much.

Photographer: Thank you, Ms. Kane, good night.

Erica: Thank you, good night. Why did you make that announcement? Were you trying to sabotage my party?

Greenlee: You were about to ruin my marriage. I had to stop you.

Erica: I wanted Ryan to know that we believe in him. He needs support. He needs his family's support. Now, I know it's been hard for him, and for you, and I thought it was very important for us to all be there for him.

Greenlee: Don't you get it? Ryan doesn't trust himself. He's so afraid of hurting me and our child. I have to find the right way, the right moment to tell him. You almost ruined everything.

Erica: Well, I don't think you should be alone with him when you tell him, from everything I just saw. If you think that Ryan’s just going to sweep you up into his arms --

Greenlee: Well, let me worry about that. Ryan and I alone is the best way to deal with this. Please, Erica, I know how much you care for Ryan, but if you really want to help, let me do this my way.

Erica: All right, I won't say anything. But don't you dare hurt Ryan.

Reggie: Go ahead, Dani. You're mad at me, right? I knocked out Mr. Big-shot Producer Josh. You want to hit me, hmm? Go ahead, hit me. Hit me! Tell me I was a fool. Tell me I was a jerk. Tell me something. Tell me -- tell me Lily was wrong.

Danielle: Lily? What about her?

Reggie: She said she saw you and that guy Josh hugging and almost kissing. Is that true?

Danielle: Reggie, there's something I need to tell you.

Krystal: I don't know what you've got going on --

Di: Ok, if you're concerned about Tad, don't be. We decided we're done. If he held out for the two of us, well, it's long gone after this, so let your wedding bells ring.

Krystal: I don't get you one bit. I mean, you seem to really care about Tad and J.R. and Jamie, the whole lot. But if you really are Dixie, then why are you putting them through this?

Di: Yeah, what do you care? You're a free woman. You know, maybe I should congratulate you. You and your daughter -- it's great teamwork. You're smarter than I thought.

Tad: We're doing the DNA test, right here, right now.

Adam: Well, that's good, that's good. But with this crowd, what's to keep some lowlife from tampering with the samples?

Tad: The way I set it up, there won't be any doubt about the results.

Jamie: So what do you think? Is she Dixie or not?

Babe: I'm as clueless as everyone else.

Jamie: Is that the truth? Or are you still holding out on me?

Kendall: Sure you're ok?

Greenlee: Yes. No. I don't know. What if Ryan had found out about our baby like that, ambushed with an audience? I thought I could do this. I thought I could find the right moment, know what to say. But what if there's no right moment? What if I don't say the right thing? I mean, the way that he went off -- Ryan’s at home waiting for me, and I can't go. I can't move. I've only got one chance at this, Kendall, and if I blow it, if I do that --

Kendall: You won't, ok? Listen to me, you will find the perfect moment. It'll be beautiful and romantic. You'll take Ryan, you'll bring him there, you'll show him how much you love him, and then you'll tell him about your baby. It'll be just the way you want it, just the two of you. Except I'll be there.

Greenlee: What? No, this is not a group activity.

Kendall: No, listen, hear me out, ok? The VIP suite at the casino? It's gorgeous. It's completely decadent. It's totally romantic. Take Ryan there tonight. Zach and I will set it up.

Greenlee: The casino? Jonathan shot Ryan there. That's not a great way to break the news that a new Lavery’s on the way.

Kendall: No, but maybe it's the perfect place. I mean, think about it -- you bury the past, you look to the future. Come on, what better way to stomp out the ghosts?

Greenlee: It might work.

Kendall: It will. You'll have your moment. You'll find the right moment, and you'll find the right words, and then the rest just leave to Zach and me. Greenlee, Ryan’s going to get through this. He loves you so much. He's going to love that baby as much as he loves you.

Greenlee: How much is he going to love me when he finds out?

Kendall: Even more. I mean, look at you. You're having a baby.

Greenlee: Ryan's baby. The most perfect, beautiful little girl, little boy. Thank you. Thank you so much. I'll tell him tonight. I'll tell Ryan that I'm pregnant.

Tad: Ok. You're all witnesses. We've all seen Dad take three samples from J.R. and three samples from a woman claiming to be his mother. Those three samples are going to be delivered to three different laboratories, courtesy of my father, Brooke, and Aidan.

Adam: And why is it we should trust them -- your father, your ex-wife, and your partner in business?

Tad: Because they want to know the truth as badly as we do. And each one of them will be accompanied by a lawyer from your legal firm.

Jamie: So what now?

Tad: We wait for the lawyers to get here. After the samples are delivered, the results will be returned in the same way.

David: Isn't that just a bit excessive?

Tad: With you in the mix, it's the only way we could guarantee the results. Either that or we could go with my first idea, which was to chain you to a tree and throw rocks at you till the results get back. Any questions? Good.

Di: It's going to be all right.

J.R.: If you're not my mother, you'll have killed me.

Reggie: Who's Josh? I mean, was I wrong to hit him? Dani, I need you to talk to me. This is Reggie, this is your boyfriend. I need you to talk to me. What -- what's going on? You know you can tell me anything. You know that, right?

Danielle: It's supposed to be easy in the beginning, but I'm not quite sure where that is.

Garret: Danielle, Reggie. Hey. Didn't hear you guys come in. Did you have a good time?

Danielle: Not exactly.

Reggie: Come on, Dani. We'll go to my place, we'll talk there.

Garret: Actually, hold on. I need to talk to Dani for a sec.

Danielle: About what?

Garret: Well, it's important. Only take a minute.

Danielle: Go ahead. I'll catch up later.

Reggie: I'll be waiting for you. Excuse me.

Garret: So, is it true? Reggie decked your friend from the beach?

Danielle: Oh. Yeah, right in the middle of the party. Is that it? Can I go now, somewhere you can't eavesdrop?

Garret: I couldn't help hearing. Now, I know we just met, and I've got no right to tell you how to handle your life --

Danielle: But you're going to tell me anyway, aren't you?

Garret: It's just advice. I mean, you can take it, or you can tell me where to put it. You like Reggie?

Danielle: A lot.

Garret: Then don't tell him you slept with Josh.

Josh: I hear congratulations are in order.

Erica: Oh, you want to get punched again?

Josh: Your stepson's got a temper, and a right cross to match.

Erica: Tends to happen when he thinks someone's hitting on his girlfriend. Tell me you're not interested.

Josh: Dani and I like each other, but it's not going anywhere. I'm not pursuing anything.

Erica: Well, good. That's one problem solved.

Josh: Sorry if that punch put a dent in the evening.

Erica: Oh, are you kidding? After Greenlee’s announcement and Ryan storming off and Lily’s meltdown, you and Reggie were just one more shining moment in this complete and utter disaster.

Josh: Complete and utter triumph, at least according to the reporters I talked to.

Erica: You're kidding.

Josh: It was unanimous. You saved the day with your promise of more surprises to come. They couldn't have been more happy if you'd given them all cars. I swear they said if your new show is half as entertaining as your personal life, guaranteed hit!

Erica: Oh. Well, hey, this is turning out to be not so horrible a party after all.

Kendall: Hey. You busy?

Zach: What'd you have in mind?

Kendall: Romance.

Zach: All right, let me take a quick shower, and we'll --

Kendall: No, no, no, this is for Greenlee and Ryan. I told her that I would give them the VIP casino suite tonight. I mean, it's the perfect setting for her to tell Ryan the news. It's intimate, it's private, no prying eyes.

Zach: Except ours.

Kendall: Exactly. What do you think?

Zach: I think it's genius. If it works out the way that we're hoping, then everything's going to be fine. If it doesn't, we'll be right there.

Kendall: So I'm going to head over there now and set up and just be there in case Greenlee needs me.

Zach: I'll come with you.

Kendall: You don't have to.

Zach: I know. Whatever happens, Greenlee’s got one hell of a friend in you.

Kendall: You're not such a bad friend yourself.

[After pacing around his apartment, Ryan pops another anti-anger pill, then hugs Greenlee.]

Tad: Everybody has to sign the evidence tag for the sample they're responsible for. Each tag should have two signatures, got it? Thanks,Ppop.

Joe: Let's hope we get the answer we want.

Tad: Whatever that is.

Adam: Watch every move he makes.

Aidan: You know, however this turns out, I've still got a million questions.

Tad: Well, between the pair of us, it's going to make two million.

Brooke: How are you holding up?

Jamie: I'm fine. It's just -- it's just been one hell of a day, a lot of surprises.

Brooke: Well, I'm pretty certain that the surprises aren't over yet.

Jamie: Yeah. Me, too.

Brooke: All right, listen, I'll talk to you later, ok? Ok.

David: Slick move. You played this whole thing to your advantage.

Krystal: I would've told the truth whether or not it got me out of prison.

David: Of course you would've.

Babe: Do you really have to be such a jerk? Mama only wanted to do the right thing.

David: And so did I, Babe. This whole thing was for you.

Babe: And I told you that I don't want you to do anything for me, especially something like this.

David: It was working, wasn't it? You did get some more time with Little Adam.

Babe: It was wrong! What don't you get about that? It was totally, completely wrong. You have wrecked people's lives.

David: You're kidding, right? And these bastards don't deserve it?

Babe: Ugh. Not another word, now or ever.

David: Babe, listen to me, we can still make this work if we just think about --

Babe: You know what, forget it, ok? I am so through with you.

David: Look, don't -- don't look at me like that, all right? One of us had to get our hands dirty to help our daughter.

Krystal: You just can't figure out that it always ends the same way. You get bit in the keister, and yet you continue to go and play God over and over and over again.

David: I don't care what happens to me. I will do whatever I need to do to make sure that Babe gets what she deserves.

Krystal: You're just like that scorpion in that old story, the one where the frog carries him across the river. They get halfway across, the scorpion stings the frog, the frog goes down, and they both die. You just can't help yourself. It's just in your nature.

David: Mm-hmm. Yeah, well, you didn't seem to mind my nature a year ago when it got you what you needed.

Krystal: Those days are over. You just keep your poisonous self out of our lives.

Garret: My word, all right -- anything you tell me stays with me. Your mother never has to hear about it.

Danielle: Well, if she did, I'd be toast.

Garret: Well, then we'll make sure that never happens. See, things like this can be very complicated, I mean, especially if you don't have very much experience, or no experience at all. You all right?

Danielle: Josh didn't make me do anything I didn't want to do. He's older, and I was giving him my "Been there, done that" routine, and things just kind of happened. Got carried away, I guess.

Garret: You weren't too carried away to take precautions, were you?

Danielle: We did. It was great. It was -- I like Josh, but I lied to Reggie. I told him he'd be the first, and now it's --

Garret: The guilt's taking over? Yeah, guilt's a funny thing. Never plays out the way you think it will. Bet you think if you come clean with Reggie, you'll feel better.

Danielle: Won't I?

Garret: Chances are you confess about Josh, and you'll blow everything up and feel even worse.

Josh: Your stepson doesn't have to worry about any competition for his girlfriend, at least not from me.

Erica: Well, Pine Valley just has so much more to offer you. And I know just the woman. She's actually perfect for you -- sophisticated, witty, successful.

Josh: Who's the lucky lady?

Erica: My daughter.

David: All right, look, you know something? This is ridiculous. You guys can rush all the tests you want, they're still going to take at least a day or two for those results to come in. I've got better things to do than sitting around here waiting for the Chandler vampires to start prowling these halls.

Tad: Forget it.

David: Get out of my way.

Tad: Until those results come back, nobody's leaving this house.

Danielle: So you want me to lie to Reggie?

Garret: I want you to take time before you decide whether or not to tell him. Are you more upset, because you made love to Josh, or because you broke your promise to Reggie?

Danielle: I don't know. I just don't want to hurt Reggie at all.

Garret: I get that. See, what happened between you and Josh could've been nothing more than a blip, all right, and you and Reggie might have a big, bright future together -- or you were drawn to Josh because something between you and Reggie isn't working. Maybe you weren't meant to be.

Danielle: Oh, don't say that.

Garret: It's just -- just something to consider. So sit with it. But you decide what you want before you make a move, ok? And if you need somebody to talk to, I'm here.

Danielle: Thanks.

Greenlee: I'm so sorry for that scene at Erica’s party.

Ryan: No, no more apologies.

Greenlee: She had no right to come after you like that.

Ryan: It's over. It's done. No worries, ok? I think they're working, David’s wonder drug.

Greenlee: I'm so glad.

Ryan: Keeping the world a safer place.

Greenlee: I'm always safe with you. Remember that surprise I promised? Ahem. Tonight's the night.

Ryan: Lay it on me.

Greenlee: Not here. Someplace fun. You up for it?

Ryan: As long as it's not another bulletproof vest, I will love it.

Greenlee: I hope so.

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

Amanda (to Aidan): I was afraid I was too late.

Jamie (to Babe): We were together no matter what, a team. Did I get that wrong?

Di: What do you expect? It's David.

Tad: And who, I wonder, are you?

Kendall (to Zach): There's a bomb in the VIP suite. The roof is going to blow off the joint.

Ryan (to Greenlee): How much longer do I have to wait for my big surprise?
