Babe: Is Little Adam ok, Doctor? We never would have left, but they said they'd run some tests, so -- Jamie.

J.R.: What the hell are you doing?

Jamie: I'm looking at a happy, healthy little boy and not his coffin, thanks to Babe.

Garret: No matter how many boys you meet, feeding you lines, playing you for a fool, I want you to always remember you have me waiting in the wings. However you need me, I'm here.

Danielle: Uh, Garret, what are you doing?

Garret: What do you think I'm doing?

Danielle: Trying to kiss me?

Garret: You sound as if that would interest you. Do you want me to kiss you, Danielle?

Julia: Hair's different. I recognize your face from your mug shot. Don't you just hate that? A girl takes how many photos in her life, but it's always the driver's license picture and the mug shot that people remember. So, Di Kirby. Which of your friends wants me dead?

Di: You've been keeping Julia here?

Tad: She's supposed to be hiding in the attic.

Julia: What, and miss all the fun? Well, now that we're up to speed, let's get started, shall we? Who was it that had my husband killed?

Di: Julia, I'm sorry, but as I told Tad, I don't know anything. I can't help you.

Tad: That's her story, and she's sticking to it.

Julia: Tad, why don't you go for a walk around the block. I can get the truth out of her.

Kendall: Oh, what you going to do? Are you going to dress me up as Julia Santos and throw me to The Dragon as a decoy? Because that's the only way you can stop me from giving Greenlee a baby. Nothing is coming between my womb and giving Ryan and Greenlee their petri dish of joy.

Greenlee: Can you not give him any ideas, please? Thank you. Leave. And mind your business while you're at it.

Zach: This is very much my business. It involves my wife. And according to your little calendar, there's still time.

Greenlee: Time for what?

Zach: Time for my wife to remain without child.

Kendall: Wait a minute. You honestly think you have a say in this? Try to stop me from giving Greenlee and Ryan a baby. Just try.

Ryan: Look, Doctor, I don't know what my brother's convinced you of, but I have seen the violence up close and personal. Today was not a one-time incident. He's completely disconnected from reality. Ok, how can you say that he's not insane?

Dr. Marquay: Because he isn't. Your brother doesn't suffer from a psychiatric disorder.

Erin: He can be very deceiving. I know, I know. I've fallen for it myself. But, Doctor, he just told us there is a bomb in his head.

Dr. Marquay: There is a bomb in his head, and if it explodes, it'll kill him.

Kendall: Come on, let's hear it. Zach’s big birth control plan is -- drum roll, please. Nothing? Hmm, ok, let me guess. You're going to sic your lawyers on me, or maybe you're going to drag me off to the desert.

Greenlee: He's not going to do anything. Marriage license or not, he doesn't have a say.

Zach: I don't need to do anything drastic to make you change your mind. I think common sense will do the trick.

Greenlee: Take your condescending self and break out the way you broke in here.

Zach: A test-tube baby Ryan didn't work when you tried it. Now, you? I don't know, I don't think you're emotionally ready for it.

Kendall: Tell me how you really feel.

Greenlee: And who gave you a vote?

Zach: My wife is talking about giving birth. I get more than a vote.

Kendall: You have no say over what I can do with my life, Zach. You got some nerve busting in here, making demands. How long have I been ragging on you to give up your whole Julia mission, and how many times have you told me it's not my problem, not to interfere, Julia is your problem. That's what you said. I'm just your business partner, not your wife. That's what you also said. Does any of this sound familiar to you?

Zach: Vaguely.

Kendall: Ok, well, it goes both ways. You have no more say over what I can do with my body than I have over what you can do with yours. So why don't you just go back to hunting down poor little Julia and just forget we ever had this conversation.

Zach: Forget we had this conversation? I can't do that. Everyone's going to be talking about it. Kendall Hart is carrying her dead ex-boyfriend's baby. I'm sure your mom's going to want to do a show on it.

Kendall: No, don't say a word to my mother.

Zach: You're doing something this radical, and your family isn't in on it?

Greenlee: And it's going to stay that way. We're adults. What we're doing is perfectly legal and totally beautiful, and we don't care what anyone else says or thinks, especially you.

Zach: Ryan Lavery is dead. Why can't you let him rest in peace?

Ryan: Doctor, you're not making any sense.

Dr. Marquay: Your brother -- Julian is his name?

Ryan: Yes, that's right.

Dr. Marquay: We ran a standard PET scan on Julian. Basically, we were able to look inside your brother's skull, and we discovered that he has a large tumor pressing on his brain.

Ryan: How -- how long has it been there?

Dr. Marquay: I estimate it's been growing for years.

Erin: Could the tumor be what caused his erratic behavior?

Dr. Marquay: From the size and the location of the mass, I'd virtually guarantee it.

Ryan: I mean, could he also -- could it also make him hear voices and make him think that he's having conversations with dead people?

Dr. Marquay: And if you told me he thought Martians were taking over the earth, I wouldn't blink. It's a wonder your brother was able to control his violence and not end up in jail for a whole lot of felonies.

Ryan: It's not his fault. None of it was his fault.

Danielle: You're going to marry my mom. You can't be kissing me.

Garret: Now, was that so bad?

Danielle: Uh -- no, I guess not. Just sort of weird. Nobody really does that.

Garret: Well, maybe they should more often. I mean, I'm not knocking your father, but he's a busy man, and he's got an amazing daughter, who deserves to be reminded she's loved and appreciated.

Danielle: My dad loves me.

Garret: I know he does. But your mother and I think you've pretty much just gotten used to operating on your own while he's tied up with cases. Now, you might front like you're cool with that, but something tells me that you're not really into flying solo. So your mom and I are offering you a room in our place in New York, with your own entrance. You can decorate it and use it any way you like. Our treat. So you're not a little girl anymore, Danielle. Sometimes parents are slow to see that, but I see myself as somebody a little different. I can see what they can't. I see that you're all grown up, ready to make your own decisions. Come on, I'll take you home.

Danielle: I -- actually, I still have loads of work to do for the Fusion campaign. My bosses will kill me if I take off right now.

Garret: I'm glad we talked. We've got a long, close relationship ahead of us. And remember, you're in charge of wherever it goes.

Danielle: So, tell me I was all wrong, Josh. Garret just has a weird way of playing with my mind. He's not --

Josh: Dani, you were dead right. That guy is definitely after you.

Jamie: How stupid can you be, not keeping your eye on Little Adam around that big freaking pool?

J.R.: Oh, don't even think about treating my son.

Jamie: Oh, don't worry. I'm not treating him. I'm not even touching him. I just wanted to make sure he was ok. You do realize that he almost died tonight because of you?

Babe: J.R. didn't do it on purpose, Jamie. It was a terrible accident. He feels awful. He's making sure that the pool's completely childproof. It's not going to happen again.

Jamie: You're defending him?

Babe: I just don't want to fight anymore, especially not in front of the baby. He loves you both so much. He doesn't understand this bad blood between you guys. All I know is that you're his daddy and you're his uncle, and he loves you both to pieces.

J.R.: Is Josh Madden going to be his new uncle, or have you moved on to a new boy toy?

Babe: Jamie is our son's only uncle, J.R., and he would no more intentionally hurt Little Adam than we would, so can we just drop this, let this go?

Jamie: I got to get back to work.

Babe: Hey, you're working here. Congratulations.

Jamie: Thanks.

Babe: You must be pretty stoked. It happened pretty fast.

Jamie: I'm observing under my grandfather, and, yeah, it feels great. It probably would have felt a lot better, though, if I hadn't run into you.

J.R.: Why don't you go after him?

Tad: Wait, wait. Julia, listen, wait. Ordinarily, I'm a sucker for a good cat fight, but there are other ways to get information out of somebody other than causing him physical harm.

Julia: You're a sucker for a pretty face.

Di: Ok, this pretty face doesn't appreciate being hunted down. What are you doing, Tad? You're risking your life by hiding her here?

Julia: Oh, you got a soft spot for Tad? That's real sweet, but it doesn't change the fact that he brought you here so I could get some answers. So let's get started. Who's after me? Look, I know that you know who it is. Tell me.

Tad: Julia, stop.

Julia: Stop? Why? That's why she's here.

Tad: No, she's here because she's not a stranger --

Julia: I've never seen her before in my life.

Tad: To me or you. Yes, you have. That's Dixie. Di Kirby is Dixie Cooney, my ex-wife.

Julia: So you betrayed me.

Ryan: All of those things that we blamed Hockett for, we accused him of, it wasn't his fault. You're saying he couldn't help it?

Dr. Marquay: And I find it incredible it wasn't detected sooner.

Ryan: Well, we didn't know what to look for.

Dr. Marquay: Well, his doctor should have known. What's the name of this physician in New Jersey that prescribed anti-psychotics to Julian?

Erin: I'm -- I'm not exactly sure of the name --

Ryan: You know, our parents handled it and --

Erin: Right.

Ryan: And they're deceased now. We have to look into that.

Dr. Marquay: I would if I were you. If ever a malpractice suit was justifiable, it is in this instance. A PET scan is always done before diagnosing mental problems to rule out physical causes first. If you like, I will call the hospital in New Jersey and investigate this doctor.

Ryan: We would really appreciate that, that sounds good, but, first, we would love it if you could explain to us a little more clearly our brother's condition. What do we do next?

Dr. Marquay: All medications must be stopped. Do you know what giving anti-psychotics to someone who isn't insane can do? It can make them psychotic.

Ryan: Believe me, I know.

Greenlee: I'm well aware my husband won't be walking through that door again. Thanks for thinking I needed a refresher course.

Zach: If you're so well aware that he's gone, why can't you keep it that way?

Greenlee: Don't you dare judge me for wanting to honor my husband's memory.

Zach: You're not honoring his memory, you're drowning in it. And you want Kendall to do the same.

Kendall: No, you don't get it. This is my gift to Greenlee. I know how much this baby means to her. I know how much it will help her and give her a happy life. This will be the most amazing, most selfless thing I've ever done.

Zach: Look me in the eye and tell me that you want a baby.

Kendall: No, I don't want a baby.

Zach: Then what are you doing? You have no idea what you're getting yourself into. Your life's going to be completely different, physically and emotionally. You're going to have to force yourself to put a lot of things on hold. And for what? A devotion to Ryan Lavery that just won't die?

Kendall: Wow, you're very intense about all this, Zach. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that you were jealous.

Zach: You can analyze my face all you want. I'm not jealous, just extremely concerned, that's all.

Greenlee: Don't be. She's going to be fine. I'm going to be fine. My baby is going to be fine.

Zach: Honey, for once I'm not the bad guy in all this. When your husband died and when your baby died, you had all my sympathy. But I thought that was going to be the end of your unfortunate period.

Kendall: Who are you to say that? If there is a way for this baby to be conceived, it deserves to be born.

Zach: This little baby would have Ryan Lavery's genes. It spells disaster, doesn't it? What's up with you? You're finally rid of the guy and rid of his temper. You don't have to be afraid of him anymore, so what do you do? You plant his screwed-up seed in my wife?

Greenlee: Ryan's genes are not tainted. Don't you ever say that again.

Ryan: We thought it was in our genes, that our brother inherited his problems.

Dr. Marquay: Mm-hmm.

Erin: But -- between the drugs and the tumor, he never even had a chance to be normal.

Ryan: If it does turn out to be noncancerous, what else could have caused it to form?

Dr. Marquay: Oh, in many cases, a mass like this is the result of a severe head trauma. Did your brother suffer a blow to the head when he was young?

Erin: Our father was abusive.

Dr. Marquay: Oh.

Erin: He used to beat on Julian. There was this one time when Dad hit him so hard he didn't wake up for a day.

Ryan: You never told me that.

Erin: It was after you left home. My parents never called a doctor to come check on him.

Dr. Marquay: I'm sorry. It seems like your father may be to blame for this.

Ryan: After I left home. I was so desperate to escape the old man's beatings myself that I left my kid brother in the line of fire. And now he's in a hospital with a massive tumor in his head. I should never have left him. I should be the one in the hospital bed.

Erin: Don't do this to yourself.

Ryan: Well, he's not psychotic, he's not insane. You heard the doctor. It was because he was beaten. And what did I do? I took him to a therapist to chat.

Erin: This isn't your fault any more than it was our brother's, ok? That doctor in New Jersey made the wrong diagnosis, but it doesn't matter now anyway because that's ancient history. Please, please tell us there's some hope. What can we do for our brother now?

Julia: So you knew all along who she was and where to find her, and you never said a word? You never bothered to tell me that Di Kirby is actually your ex-wife?

Tad: I couldn't. If I had told you, you'd be out there looking for her. So you'd get nailed by the cops, and that's if Kevin's associates didn't find you first. Either way, the story wouldn't have a very happy ending. So I just thought it would be safer if I brought Dixie to you.

Julia: Dixie, I remember back in the day, you were a real goody-two-shoes, a living angel. Hmm. How things change. A few years out of Pine Valley and now you're hanging with The Dragon.

Di: I never hung with the dragon. I don't even know who that is, Julia.

Julia: I bet you don't even know who Kevin Sturgess is, do you?

Di: I dated Kevin, yes, but if he was involved with the man -- the men who are after you, that's more than I ever knew.

Julia: I know you cared for Maria. Can't you do it for her?

Di: If I could, I would, don't you think? I mean, there's nothing I would want to do more than help Maria’s sister, not just for her, but because it's the right thing to do, only I can't. Do you hear me? I can't.

Julia: I don't believe her. Do you?

Tad: I wish I believed her more.

Julia: Well, I think I have more luck walking out into the middle of the street yelling "Come and get me." You don't think I'm just going to forget this, live in your attic forever, do you?

Di: You -- you -- oh, you royal son of a -- you had her stashed here, and you couldn't tell me, Tad?

Tad: It's getting harder to trust one another, isn't it?

J.R.: You never answered my question, Babe. Why didn't you run after Jamie, tell him you're sorry for all your bump-and-grind?

Babe: Jamie's busy. He wouldn't want to hear what I have to say anyway.

J.R.: Yeah, you got that right. I took a precaution in getting someone to keep an eye on him just in case he was sneaking out for midnight hookups with you without me looking.

Babe: Why am I not surprised?

J.R.: I was, especially when I found out my brother has zero interest in coming within five feet of you.

Babe: Why would he want to come near me anyway? Moreover, you gave me extra time with our son tonight. There's nowhere I'd rather be. Do you ever count his fingers when he's sleeping, just to make sure they're all there? And, you know, before I found out about Miranda I used to have nightmares that I had the wrong baby.

Little Adam: Miranda.

Babe: Miranda, right. That Little Adam had drowned in the river.

J.R.: So you passed the nightmare on to me, made me live with it. I'm sorry, but it's very difficult to have sympathy.

Babe: I didn't expect you to. And I've told you how sorry I am, J.R., about lying to you and making you think that our son was dead. But even if I told you every second of every day for the rest of our lives, it wouldn't be enough. Not enough "I'm sorrys," are there?

Little Adam: Miranda.

Babe: Miranda, that's right.

Danielle: Well, how can you tell for sure that Garret's really after me? I mean, he didn't do anything, really.

Josh: He did plenty. "Any way you need me, Dani"? "Do you want me to kiss you"? "You're not a kid anymore." "You're in charge of where this goes." Dude's being patient, but he is definitely laying the groundwork for hitting it. Seduction 101 -- read the girl. Don't make your pitch until you know she's ready to say yes. Garret knew if he kissed you on the lips just now, you'd flatten him or run straight to your mom.

Danielle: Try both. Oh, God, this is really real, isn't it?

Josh: Sorry, but it is. Just because Garret hasn't flat-out asked you to bed, doesn't mean he's not interested. I know you don't want to hear this, Dani, but if you would've said yes at any point tonight, trust me, he would have closed the deal on the spot.

Kendall: You have some mighty big brass, Slater. Not that I'd know. Maybe it slipped your mind that our niece, Miranda, is the spawn of your disgusting brother, Michael. That loser was the very worst of the whole Cambias family. But Miranda isn't tainted. She's a miracle. So you want to look me in the eyes and tell me she would have been better off never being born?

Zach: You keep Miranda out of this.

Kendall: Why not? It's the exact same thing.

Greenlee: Only Ryan is a saint compared to your brother. And let's not forget Ethan. He survived your cruddy genes moderately ok. I mean, your son may not be much, but he's better than you.

Kendall: Exactly, ok. So you got it, Zach? We are keeping Ryan's memory alive, because despite the few dark moments, he was an amazing, funny, loving man, and he deserves to go on.

Greenlee: We're going through with it, Zach. Deal with it.

Zach: You don't even see what you're doing, do you, Greenlee? You're stealing your best friend's life.

Greenlee: I didn't put a gun to Kendall’s head. She wanted to do this. It was her idea.

Zach: And you jumped on it because all you can think about is what Greenlee needs.

Kendall: No, Greenlee is not selfish -- at least not in this case. Sorry.

Zach: I thought you had a conscience. And here you are, taking advantage of your best friend.

Greenlee: No, I am not.

Kendall: No, she's not.

Zach: Haven't you caused enough damage in your race to motherhood, don't you think? Huh? Ryan jumping off that cliff didn't leave an impression on you? Apparently not. You're so determined to have a child to prove that Ryan loved you, you don't give a thought -- any thought -- about what this one needs.

Kendall: Ok, all right, that's enough out of you. One more word, and we are finished.

Ryan: How soon can you remove the tumor?

Dr. Marquay: Oh, as soon as possible. It's his only hope for regaining any sense of normalcy.

Erin: Then once it's out, he'll be better?

Dr. Marquay: All brain surgery has risks. This tumor is in a vital area. To remove it at this stage without any significant impact will be tricky.

Ryan: What's the worst that could happen?

Dr. Marquay: Well, all kinds of neurological complications could occur. Your brother could go blind, he could lose his speech, and he could die.

Ryan: And what if we don't do anything?

Dr. Marquay: Best case, he remains like this for a while, then slowly declines until this tumor will kill him.

[Babe gasps]

J.R.: What -- what's wrong?

Babe: Is he breathing?

J.R.: Yes.

Babe: Oh, God.

J.R.: Of course, he's breathing.

Babe: Oh. How do you do it? How do you make all the fear go away? Maybe you don't want to tell me. You probably think I deserve every ounce of agony.

J.R.: What I do is I look in on him.

Babe: You're lucky you have that.

J.R.: If you get freaked out tonight, you can -- you can do the same thing. As for right now, you probably should get some sleep. I'll stay up and watch him.

Babe: Thanks, but I never get to just sit here and watch him. I don't want to miss a minute of it.

Joe: How's Little Adam?

Jamie: He's doing great. His parents are with him right now.

Joe: The way you felt about Babe, this has to be killing you.

Jamie: Hasn't opened a vein yet.

Joe: Yeah? Sound just like your dad when he was your age -- pretending not to care when his heart was broken.

Jamie: Seriously, Grandpa, I'm fine.

Joe: Hmm?

Jamie: No worries.

Joe: Really? You bluff just like him, too.

Tad: I wanted to see what you were made of these days, whether or not you would help Julia.

Di: Well, you know what you did? You know what you accomplished by doing that? You ripped her heart out right along with mine.

Tad: Well, you're probably feeling guilty, because you can't stand the idea of holding out on her.

Di: No. No, because you -- you don't believe a word I say. You'd rather believe a man like -- like Zach Slater?

Tad: No. Dixie, what I want -- what I want more than anything is to be able to trust the woman I'm falling in love with all over again.

Di: Huh. What do you want from me, Tad? I mean, if I could fix this, I would. I hate that you're risking your own life by having her here, yeah, yeah, because I'm falling in love with you, too.

Tad: Is that why you're keeping silent, because you're worried about me? That something's going to happen to me? I can take care of myself. Just do it, Dixie, tell me everything.

Di: I can't blame Julia for being out of her mind grasping at every straw she can, but she puts everyone in danger who tries to help her, Tad. Zach almost got himself killed at Wildwind. I don't want you to be next.

Tad: So you're not going to tell me, are you?

Di: There's --

Tad: I know, I know, I know -- there's nothing to tell. Fine. Do me a favor. Just keep quiet about Julia.

Di: Are you kidding me?

Tad: No.

Di: What do you think, Tad? What -- oh -- oh, you think maybe I -- not only do I know who's after Julia, maybe I'm working with them, too. You think the minute I leave here, I'll call a hit for her. My God, Tad.

Tad: I was talking about the police. Or Zach, maybe. I don't know. I honestly don't know who -- who else I got to worry about. I just don't want her to be a target.

Di: Well, they won't hear it from me. I mean, do you -- do you mind if I leave now, go home, back to my family? Or maybe you got Jimmy Hoffa hiding down in the basement ready to rake me over the coals, too. God, you know, I'm in no hurry to see you again.

Erin: How long before this tumor kills our brother?

Dr. Marquay: It's impossible to estimate a time frame, but from the size, I'd say it's doing major damage at a rapid rate.

Erin: So -- so, what? Do -- do we go through with the surgery?

Dr. Marquay: I can't make that call for you. I can only tell you what I'd do if he was my brother, but that's a big decision. I'll give you some time to consider. Meanwhile, I'll find a surgeon to take a look at him.

Ryan: Yeah, thank you very much. Thank you for everything.

Erin: Thank you.

Ryan: All this time, and I never even thought of taking Jonathan to a neurologist. I just automatically assumed that he was like Dad and like Braden, and that all his problems were because of our pathetic genes.

Ryan: Oh, my God. Greenlee was right.

Greenlee: Kendall, you don't have to take him on for me.

Kendall: Well, somebody has to.

Zach: I'm trying to keep you two from making the worst mistake of your life.

Kendall: Zach, I don't care what you think. I loved Ryan, and now I love Greenlee. You don't have to defend me from them. And like I said before, you have no say over what I do with my body. And I swear to God, if you lift one finger to cause one ounce of trouble for either of us, I will have divorce papers on your desk before you can blink.

[Door opens and closes]

Greenlee: Did I really take advantage of you?

[Ryan remembers voices from the past.]

Ryan's voice: Patrick, Braden, Jonathan -- a sadist, a rapist, and a killer, all full-blood Laverys, just like --

Greenlee: No, no, no, no, no, no, not like you. Not like you at all. I love you because I know you. I know your mind and your heart and your soul and it's beautiful. Your rage -- it's emotional. It's not a chemical imbalance, it's not a mental illness you inherited from your father. You didn't need medication. You needed to believe something was controlling your temper when it was you the whole time.

Erin: Come on, Ryan, tell me what Greenlee was right about.

Ryan: It doesn't matter. All that matters is I let Jonathan down, and I got to make it right.

Erin: You have got to stop taking this on yourself. I mean, how -- how could you have seen inside Jonathan's head? How would you have possibly predicted this was going to happen? I didn't see what was going on, either. My God, I was going to keep him locked up behind a closet for the rest of his life. We just assumed Jonathan inherited his mental problems from Dad.

Ryan: Yeah, but he didn't. The things he did wasn't because he was evil or insane and people died. And now that's not just on Jonathan's head. It's on mine, too.

Danielle: But Garret is like this really big VIP. Why would he want to fool with me?

Josh: I worked on Wall Street for a while, saw how moguls operate. Big shots get big by taking big risks for big stakes. Maybe Garret gets off thinking he can take what most men wouldn't dare go for.

Danielle: His fiancée's daughter?

Josh: He's flirting, flattering, drawing you in so if and when you finally come around, it'll be you instigating things, not him.

Danielle: Ok, if he really thinks I'd ever go there, he's beyond twisted.

Josh: The day after he met you, he found you in that beach shack with me. Who knows what Garret's thinking?

Danielle: Ok, but he was engaged to my mom before he even laid eyes on me. He's still planning on marrying her. What, you think he wants to be with me while staying with her?

Josh: Why offer you a room at their place when they're on their honeymoon stage, and you're getting old enough to live on your own. The guy is trolling for you, hoping you'll bite. Trust your instincts, Dani. Stay away from that guy.

Danielle: My mom's going to know something's up. I'm in their wedding! What am I supposed to tell her?

Josh: Maybe you can tell her the truth.

Danielle: She'd flip. Besides, it all sounds so lame without any proof.

Josh: Then just tell her how he makes you feel.

Mimi: Dani, there you are. Hello again.

Josh: How's it going?

Danielle: I'm glad you're here, Mom. Um -- there's -- there's something I've been wanting to tell you.

Derek: Go ahead, baby. Tell us anything.

Josh: See you, Dani. Give me a call when you get a chance.

Mimi: Bye. We knew you were working late. I'm sorry we didn't bring enough food for your friend.

Danielle: Oh, it's all good. So you guys just came to hang out?

Derek: And to testify in person I've agreed to go to your mother's wedding. I was hoping you'd be my date.

Danielle: Dad, you really hashed things out?

Mimi: I told you.

Derek: Your mother's happy, nothing wrong with that. I know you don't want a stepfather, but Garret's an ok guy, and you don't have to live with them, so why not wish her well?

Danielle: What if I wish her well and wish her not married?

Mimi: Honey, I -- I thought we were past all that. You and Garret have become such good friends. You agreed to be the maid of honor at my wedding, and your father and I have made peace and moved on. Don't start in again for nothing.

Danielle: It's not nothing, Mom.

Derek: Then what is it?

Danielle: Uh -- forget it. I'm just -- I'm just really stressed out with the whole Fusion launch. Don't mind me.

Derek: Well, in that case, how about a toast? To the bride and groom.

Mimi: Cheers.

Joe: Looks like Little Adam’s near-miss has taken the fight out of them.

Jamie: Or something did.

Joe: Hmm. When we're through here, let's go have a late-night snack, and we'll talk about this.

Jamie: You buying?

Joe: Me buying? You're Mr. Moneybags. All right, all right, I'll treat.

Jamie: I owe you.

Joe: Yeah?

Jamie: I'm in.

Joe: Ok.

Little Adam: I call Mama.

J.R.: Yeah.

Babe: This Mama? Mama's here. Yeah, Mama's here.

Little Adam: Yes.

Kendall: Don't pay any attention to Zach. He just hates it when the world doesn't revolve around him.

Greenlee: But was he right?

Kendall: No. He's always wrong. Just remember, tomorrow is the first step in creating your baby with Ryan, and no Zach Slater is going to stop us.

[Zach mulls over his recent conversation.]

Kendall's voice: If there is a way for this baby to be conceived, it deserves to be born.

Zach’s voice: You have no idea what you're getting yourself into. Your life's going to be completely different, physically and emotionally. You're going to have to force yourself to put a lot of things on hold, and for what?

Ryan: If I had any idea --

Erin: You're missing the point, Ryan, ok? Yes, yes, this is a tumor, and, yes, the surgery can be risky, but for the first time, there is hope that we can fix this. All right? Jonathan wouldn't even have to have a fake name. He could -- he could have a normal life.

Ryan: If he survives the surgery.

Erin: The doctor said that the tumor is going to kill him anyway, and he'll be feeling nothing but torture and pain in the meantime.

Ryan: You're right.

Erin: If there's hope for Jonathan, there's hope for us all.

Tad: Julia? I think it's time we move you someplace else. Julia?

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

Erica (to Jack): What if I fall flat on my new beginning?

Zach (to Babe): I hope you're ready for a special assignment.

Kendall: Keep your eyes peeled for Zach.

Greenlee: What do when we see him, tackle him?

Kendall: Whatever it takes.

Ryan (to Jonathan): Nothing is going to explode inside of your head, because we're going to get it and cut it out.
