Julia: Yeah, pretty sweet setup you got here, Slater.
Zach: Owning the place has its perks.
Julia: You call this a safe house? I call this a party house. Champagne, mini bar?
Zach: The Feds may have identified Garret's players, but until they find them, you should hang here.
Julia: Well, better here than with the cops. Your food's better.
Zach: So you'll stay?
Julia: Everything I do now, everywhere I go, it's finally my choice again.
[Gazing at her mother's wedding photo, Danielle remembers her words.]
Mimi's voice: How could you? How could you tell such horrible lies? Garret -- he loves us. Dani, please don't do this. Take it all back. Tell the truth.
[Knock on door]
Livia: Dani, I'm so glad you're here.
Derek: There's something we need to talk about.
Danielle: I've seen you guys like this before. What's going on? Where's Mom?
Livia: Your mother is fine.
Derek: Garret Williams was killed.
J.R.: When is she going to get here, already?
Adam: Calm down, son. Dixie will be here soon.
Jamie: My dad knows you're waiting. He's not stopping for chicken fingers.
Del: Yeah, Tad Martin, everybody's hero.
Jamie: And how exactly did you help again?
J.R.: She should be home safe!
J.R.: About time. What are you doing here?
Babe: Sorry. Dixie isn't home yet?
J.R.: No. Look, I've already invited your ex. This is a family reunion.
Babe: Well, technically, I am family.
Krystal: Baby doll, why don't you come upstairs.
Babe: Excuse me.
Adam: As if one Carey in this house wasn't enough.
J.R.: All that matters is that my mom gets home safe.
Babe: J.R. and Jamie are waiting for their mother to waltz through that door and make it all better again. What the heck are we supposed to do?
Krystal: I'm not sure yet. Do we tell them? Dixie's not coming home today, not ever. She died three years ago. That woman that they're waiting on is nothing but a fake!
J.R.: Is there any more annoying people going to ring my bell and drive me nuts?
Brooke: Well, it's good to see you, too. I heard the news about Dixie, and I just wanted to come over and make sure for myself that she's ok.
Jamie: She's not here yet, Mom.
J.R.: Well, come on in. Maybe we should get a phone tree going, invite the rest of the town.
Di: Y'all waiting for something? Hey.
J.R.: We were waiting.
Di: It's ok. It's all ok.
Babe: Di's back.
Krystal: So this is it.
Babe: Decision time.
Krystal: So, do we stay up here and let them have their reunion, or do we go downstairs and bust it all to hell?
Jamie: Welcome home. How are you?
Di: I'm fine, honestly.
Adam: Just another day at the office with her organized-crime buddies.
Brooke: Can it, Adam. We are all very happy to have you home.
Di: Well, I owe it all to Tad.
Del: It's great to have you back. You are damn lucky.
Di: Don't I know it. I mean, thank you for -- for your concern, but really, all I need is right here, all your faces, just right here -- and a hug from Little Adam.
J.R.: Well, you know, someone should check you out. You were almost killed.
Di: J.R., look at me. Your mom came back in one piece. Yeah, I prayed, I hoped. I -- I didn't know if I would ever see my family again.
Adam: You wouldn't have needed our prayers if you'd simply been honest with us.
J.R.: Will you stop it, Dad?
Di: No. Adam isn't completely wrong.
Brooke: That's one you don't hear every day.
Di: I do, I owe you all an apology. I shouldn't have worried you like that.
J.R.: No, you don't. It's over, it's done. You're home.
Di: I let you think that I might not make it home.
Jamie: How bad did it get?
Di: It was touch-and-go at some points. But Tad and Zach Slater found Julia and me and saved the day. I owe so much to you. I still don't even know how you found us.
Tad: It's no big deal. Finding people is what I do, remember?
Di: But you -- you never gave up on me.
Tad: How do you give up on the love of your life?
Babe: Exactly when did we think this was a good idea?
Krystal: You know, we didn't start this lie. Di did when she bleached her hair and called herself Dixie.
Babe: We also didn't start the lie about Miranda being my baby.
Krystal: Thank you, Paul Cramer.
Babe: And it didn't let us off the hook for that one.
Krystal: I screwed that one up good. But this -- this feels different.
Babe: So you think we should tell them?
Krystal: I don't know. I am nowhere closer to an answer than before. I am worried sick about Tad. He thinks that the love of his life has come back from the dead, and, you know, it's not the first time that we tried to prove that that wasn't true.
Babe: But at least last time we got you out of prison.
Krystal: I didn't want to break Tad's heart then. And that was before he fell even deeper in love with Di.
Babe: No, Mama. Tad doesn't love Di. He doesn't even know who she is. He loves Dixie, only he doesn't know it's not her.
Krystal: Tad feels for a woman, not a ghost. And the woman that he wants is flesh and blood and right downstairs.
Di: I kept quiet to keep you all safe.
Jamie: You could have told us anything. We would have helped you.
J.R.: We would have kept you safe.
Di: No, I didn't want to take the chance.
Del: And you couldn't chance that guy hurting Julia. That's not who you are.
J.R.: Look, no more apologies or explanations. No one blames you. You're home safe. That's all that matters.
Di: Don't let me off that easy.
Adam: No, don't worry, we won't.
Di: When I was trapped in that apartment with Julia, I had flashes of my life, and what hit me hardest was -- was all the secrets that I've -- I've kept and how much they've hurt the people that I care about, and -- I'm so sorry, and I love you all so much.
J.R.: Don't worry, Mom. It's ok.
[Upset, Di runs out to the patio.]
Tad: Let her go. Just let her go.
Danielle: I don't get it. How is Garret dead?
Derek: It's a long story, but what the gist is Garret Williams was at the top of the bad-guy food chain.
Livia: The New York police searched his apartment. They found contacts, business lists -- the kind of stuff that marks him as the head of a very large, very dangerous crime organization.
Derek: You know that task force your mom was a part of, the guy that we're trying to get to?
Danielle: It was Garret?
Derek: He was right beside Mimi the whole time. He was gunning for Julia Santos-Keefer. Dixie Martin knew who he was.
Livia: He held Dixie and Julia hostage.
Derek: He threatened them. Julia shot him in self-defense, saved both their lives.
Julia: Noah and I spent our fair share of time in hotels, right before every moving day. Nothing this fancy, of course.
Zach: You can order whatever you want.
Julia: In-room massage?
Julia: Filet mignon, prosciutto and melon?
Zach: Whatever you want.
Julia: Noah used to say that he would give me the world if I wanted it. He never had the chance. Yeah, this room will do.
[Julia pours herself a glass of champagne.]
Julia: Should I have somebody taste this for me?
Zach: You don't trust my choice?
Julia: Oh, no, I think the vintage is fine. It's just I did point a gun at you a couple of times, ditched you when you tried to help me out. Just think maybe you switched it with the cheap stuff to pay me back.
Zach: If I wanted to pay somebody back, I wouldn't do it with a cheap bottle of champagne.
Julia: Am I ungrateful or what? How can you even stand me, much less come to New York to rescue me from Garret's fancy prison?
Zach: You pointed a gun at me, but you didn't shoot me, so that's got to count for something, right?
Julia: Yeah, right, yeah. The bullet was meant for someone else. It wasn't self-defense. I could have let him live.
J.R.: Winifred, could you get a case of my father's special reserve and bring it up from the cellar?
Adam: Do you have any idea what that's worth? Winifred -- ah, it's exactly the right thing for this occasion. Yes, two cases, two, and your very finest lemonade for Dixie and her brother.
Jamie: Maybe you should lay off the sauce, too. Never know what kind of trouble it can get you in.
J.R.: Amen to that.
Adam: Right. I am actually hosting a party for my son's mobster's moll mother.
Brooke: Oh, lighten up, Adam. J.R. is happy, Dixie’s back. All is well with the world. Everybody's happy. Or is that the problem, everybody's happy but you? You want to clue me in?
Adam: You don't want to hear about it.
Brooke: Well, it's probably not any worse than anything else you've done.
Adam: It was a horrible mistake. It involved moonshine and a contest and a she-devil straight from hell.
Brooke: I know about you and your new wife. You didn't even ask me to give you away. And I would have, gladly.
Adam: I can see right through your flippancy, hmm? You're all torn up, because you're still crazy about me.
Brooke: You want to know my true feelings?
Brooke: I think you finally met the wife you deserve. Yee-haw. Mr. Krystal Carey.
Babe: A part of me wants to keep my mouth shut, and then there's this part of me that -- that thinks, like, what if that phony, what if she hurts J.R. and Jamie and breaks their hearts? But then if we tell them, we're going to be breaking their hearts, as well.
Krystal: Honey, I get where your concern for Jamie comes from, but since when did you care about J.R.’s heart?
Babe: I know that J.R. can be a jerk, but to rip his heart out like that, to tell him that this woman is a fake and his mother's still dead?
Krystal: That's assuming that J.R. has a heart to rip out.
Babe: You have seen him with Dixie -- or Di. Maybe she's the only one that's ever found it.
J.R.: Thank you.
Tad: Where does that come from?
J.R.: Well, you kept my son from me, but you brought my mother back. That doesn't mean I'm going to forgive you.
Tad: J.R., you know the two most important people in the world to me? You and your brother.
J.R.: And Mom.
Tad: You're right, and Dixie. Always Dixie.
Stuart: Oh, I was so scared. I'm so --
Stuart: I'm so glad you're ok!
Stuart: Are you ok?
Di: Yeah, I'm fine now. It's so good to see you. Do you still have it?
Stuart: Here's your letter.
Di: I knew you'd keep it safe.
Stuart: Yeah, did I get you in trouble when I didn't deliver it to the boathouse like --
Di: Oh, no, no, no. The boathouse -- no, you did just fine.
Stuart: I'm so glad.
Di: Thank you so much.
Stuart: Yeah. You -- you make everybody here so happy. J.R. is -- he's completely different when you're around.
Di: Well, it's mutual.
Stuart: I didn't -- I didn't get you in trouble? I meant to deliver it when you told me, but --
Di: No, it doesn't matter now, Stuart.
Del: You guys ok out here?
Di: Yeah, we're just fine.
Stuart: Yeah, we got -- well, I got to get back to the gallery, and we'll talk, right?
Di: Well, I'll see you soon, hopefully.
Di: This is it. The letter that lays out the case for Garret Williams and tells who I really am.
Del: Yeah, and it never needs to be read now.
Di: Oh, my God, help me get out of here alive. Oh, how do I make good on this debt? Do I go in there and tell those people that -- I mean, do I tell them who they really welcomed home?
Julia: Thank you. Ooh. Garret wasn't much of a host. You know, it's kind of hard to eat a man's food when he's the reason your husband is dead. Whew, can you believe that guy? Wow. Shrimp. Could those puppies be any fatter?
Zach: We have them flown in.
Julia: Yeah, that Garret, he was slick, all right. It wasn't enough that he hunted Noah and me down like animals, but he had Noah killed and he was his childhood friend. Ooh. He wanted to crawl into my brain, make me beg, turn me into one of those little girls he used to take advantage of, make me plead for my life. Bastard. Sure you won't have one? They say living well is the best revenge. That and watching your enemy take his last breath.
Zach: That you did.
Julia: Yeah, I did.
Zach: You ok with it?
Derek: They found more than business information in Garret's apartment. There was a photo album.
Livia: Photo after photo of beautiful girls, one after another, none of them any older than you.
Danielle: A whole album full? So he really was some bigtime pervert.
Derek: The apartment was where he ran his business and kept young women.
Danielle: Oh, this is going to make me hurl.
Livia: Honey, there's more.
Derek: We don't need to go into that.
Livia: Derek, Dani is an adult. This is about her. She should be told everything.
Danielle: Ok, will someone fill me in and stop talking like I'm not here?
Livia: The last photo in his book was of you.
Danielle: Just me? Not me and Mom? I don't remember him taking any pictures.
Livia: Well, he did. Garret fully intended for you to be the next girl on his list.
Brooke: Big day. Big story.
Tad: Yeah. It's getting bigger by the minute.
Brooke: Wow. The look on J.R.’s face when Dixie walked in?
Tad: He got his mother back. I think that about says it all.
Brooke: Well, you got Dixie back. Why do you look like you lost her all over again?
Di: I don't want to lose anyone, but I want to do the right thing.
Del: So you say the right thing is to tell them you're Di Henry, Dixie’s half sister, raised by that crabby old bat Aunt Louise? You think that's best?
Di: I don't know. I don't know. I know I can't have it both ways. I can't. I can't tell them the truth and ever see love again in their eyes.
Del: Look at it this way -- the bad guys are off your back. You can live free, no problem.
Di: No, I don't think this is free.
Del: If you had all the time and the money and the freedom in the world, where would be right this second?
Di: I'd be in a home with Tad, my husband, with -- with Jamie and J.R. outside on the patio, bickering over the grill, and Little Adam toddling in and blowing kisses to Tad and me on the sofa.
Del: In other words, you would be Dixie.
Brooke: It's another Dixie miracle.
Tad: How do you tell the difference between a miracle and a fantasy?
Brooke: A miracle is real.
Tad: Wow. This used to be my fantasy for so long, I couldn't even admit it out loud. I used to pray that Dixie survived the accident and would come back somehow, we'd still have a life together.
Brooke: But your fantasy came true, and that's a miracle. But your face doesn't say "miracle." What, is it all the secrets that Dixie kept? I mean, is that why you're out here with me, and you're not there with her right now?
Tad: Something like that. Just so many secrets.
Brooke: Then you need to talk to her.
Tad: And then what? I take her in my arms and tell her all is forgiven, what's done is done?
Brooke: You're the only one who knows what you're going to do, but you know what? You're not going to find out if you stay here.
Tad: Yeah, well, maybe, just maybe, I should tell her that we're done. No more, never again. What the hell am I going to do?
Di: This is it. The last bit of truth, saying I'm Di Henry, and I stole my half sister Dixie’s life.
[Del holds Dixie’s letter over a candle and begins burning it.]
J.R.: Where's my mother?
Adam: Oh, she's outside with her brother, the brain trust.
J.R.: I guess we're going to have to wait for her to hold you, huh, won't we? Yeah.
Jamie: Hey there, little guy. Remember me?
J.R.: No, he doesn't. He blocked you out.
Jamie: Lay off the drugs, J.R.
J.R.: You know, if you weren't such a -- all right. Fine. You can have him.
Jamie: No, I'm not buying it. You got a camera in here, and then you're going to nail me for kidnapping or child endangerment -- something stupid.
J.R.: You know, I tried. Just remember to tell everybody that you're the jerk that turned it down, ok?
Jamie: Come on. Come here, boy. Shh. Hey there, buddy. It's your Uncle Jamie. Everybody needs a cool uncle, and I guess I'm your guy.
Brooke: I don't understand this whole turnaround about Dixie. I mean, the last time we talked, it's like you were -- you were all locked in almost.
Tad: The last time we talked, you didn't want to see us together. You thought it was a mistake.
Brooke: Because I thought that Dixie would finally trash your heart for good. But I know that's not true now, because I've seen -- I've seen how she looks at you. She just radiates, and I didn't see that, I didn't see that in her eyes until she came back.
Tad: With a brand-new face.
Brooke: She obviously knows how precious you are, especially after almost losing everything.
Tad: You know what, stop. You're not exactly making this any easier.
Brooke: What? I'm sorry, I'm sorry. You know, maybe I'm just saying the wrong words at the wrong time.
Tad: You never say the wrong words. You're the most honest person I know. That's the difference between you and our son and the rest of the world.
Brooke: Truth is all well and good, but Dixie is in there and she's alive. You know, how many times can you actually lose her?
Di: Maybe I should just tell them, let them get on with their -- with their lives, make them face the fact that the woman they love is -- is dead.
Del: Come with me.
J.R.: Show us, Little A.
Jamie: Yeah, you driving?
J.R.: Where's that green truck?
Jamie: What are you doing with it?
Little Adam: Green truck.
Jamie: Just sits right there?
Del: You did that. Now, tell me again that Dixie is dead.
Little Adam: That way? That way?
Jamie: That way.
Little Adam: That way?
Julia: The Dragon's dead. I had to kill him. I knew it would never be over until he died. Nine years of running and hiding, never being called by my own name, losing Noah. I knew that it would never be done until he died. Now Noah's at peace. I'm at peace.
Zach: Just like that? The Dragon's life is over and yours begins?
Julia: That's the plan.
Anita: Oh, my God. Julia. Oh, my God.
Sam: You're safe.
Anita: Are you really ok?
Julia: Oh, yes! Yes!
Anita: Oh, my God! I can't believe it. It's so incredible to see you.
Julia: You can thank Zach for that.
Sam: Oh, great, so you're done now. You can leave our family alone.
Julia: Sam --
Julia: Ease up on Zach. He's the reason I'm alive.
Anita: Thank you so much for getting my sister back.
Zach: We all worked on it. Couldn't have done it if you hadn't found that valet stub from Garret's wedding day.
Sam: Well, Lily and I wanted to help.
Zach: Uh-huh. Good. Well, I don't want to intrude on your family reunion. Order whatever you want.
Julia: Oh, hey, better watch out for that room service bill. The Santos clan can really eat.
Zach: Have fun.
Anita: Julia, it has been so long! Are you really back?
Julia: Looks like it.
Anita: Are you sure you're fine?
Livia: You were right.
Danielle: I knew something was off from the very beginning, but my mom so wanted to believe it was a lie. She believed Garret over me. What kind of parent does that, believes her boyfriend over her own daughter?
Derek: I treat you like a kid sometimes -- ok, all the time -- and I'm sorry. But what you did, risking everything to tell Mimi the truth to protect her from that pig -- that was the act of a woman, a smart, brave, loving woman, and I am so proud of you.
Little Adam: I don't like it.
Di: Hey. Hey, darling.
Jamie: Would you like to hold him?
Di: No. It makes me feel too happy to see all three of you together. Oh. Ooh, I need a glass of lemonade. Oh.
Di: You let your brother hold your son.
J.R.: It wasn't easy after everything he's done, but I had to.
Di: No. Nobody forced you to do anything.
J.R.: When you were missing, I couldn't get it out of my head -- if you died thinking that I was some sort of selfish jerk.
J.R.: I just want to be a man that you'd be proud of.
Di: Baby, always know this -- I am so very proud of you. Prouder than -- than I could even ever imagine. And I -- J.R., I know what it's like to get burned. I know how hard it is to accept that -- that love is real, but every drop of anger you let out, you know, it makes more room for love. Wow. Who knew getting your life threatened would make you into such a big cheese ball? Oh. God, thank you for forgiving me all my secrets.
Di: And thank you for -- for letting me back into your lives. Thank you for letting me love you.
Adam: What the devil do you two want?
Di: Grab everybody a glass.
Krystal: You sure you want us here?
Di: Don't be silly. You know, if we're sharing a house, we might as well share a drink.
Adam: And I thought it was bad with Mary Smythe.
Krystal: I, uh -- I'm glad you made it out of whatever trouble you were in, Dixie. I've always known you were tough and levelheaded, and I'm glad that kept you alive.
Babe: You know, we'll let you guys get back to your party.
Di: No, really, I want to put all of this behind us. Let's make a fresh start.
Krystal: We appreciate that, we do, but looks like you got enough going on down here already. So --
Di: Ok, well, now I'm ready to hold that baby.
Jamie: Well, he's been waiting for you, so --
J.R.: To family. Because that's really what's important.
Brooke: Well said, J.R.
Di: Hmm. If this is a dream, nobody wake me up.
Babe: I must be dreaming. J.R. let Jamie hold our son?
Krystal: Did hell freeze over or is J.R. drinking just like his father?
Babe: I'm sorry, I can't get over this.
Krystal: I tell you what, that woman is just glowing love in every direction. Love for J.R., love for Jamie, Little Adam, and for Tad, and that love is real. That love is saying she would cut off her own arm before she'd hurt any one of them.
Babe: And they love her back just as much. How can we make all that love go away?
Krystal: That woman downstairs can patch this family up. She can make Tad happy, give him back his whole world.
Babe: I'm right there with you, Mama. Downstairs, I saw a real possibility that the ugly between J.R. and Jamie could somehow go away. And, yeah, it wasn't total peace, but Dixie did that -- or Di. Does it matter what her name really is?
Krystal: I don't think it does.
Di: You're not with us.
Tad: No, I'm sorry, I, uh -- I needed to get some fresh air, you know, do a little thinking.
Di: No, I didn't mean with everyone inside. I meant with us, happy, relieved. You feel as far away as when I was locked in Garret's apartment. You've pulled away, Tad. I know why.
Zach: The bad guys are all gone, and I'm not dead yet.
[Kendall hugs Zach.]
Danielle: Where's my mom?
Livia: She's still being debriefed, and she has some substantial explaining to do to her superiors. She has union counsel, but I'm going to head to New York and see if I can do anything. You call me if you need anything.
Danielle: Thanks, Aunt Livia.
Livia: I love you.
Danielle: Love you, too.
Derek: Don't worry. I'm not going anywhere.
Julia: Oh, some view -- no bars.
Sam: Julia, you want something?
Julia: What? "Julia."
Sam: Are you ok?
Julia: I get to be called by my own name again. I'm Julia.
Anita: You know, why don't I go get my med bag? I can do a head-to-toe right here.
Julia: No, no, no, I can diagnose myself. Remember? I'm a nurse. Julia Santos-Keefer. Hi. I'm Julia. Nice to meet you. Hi. I'm Julia.
Julia: It's nice to meet you. I'm Julia.
Anita: How do you do?
Julia: Hello, my name's Julia. Hi! I'm Julia! Nice to meet you!
Di: There's been so many secrets, so many times I could have told you the truth, and I didn't, but I meant what I said back there. I want it to be different. I -- I don't want any more lies or secrets between us.
Tad: No more secrets. Really? Does that include the fact that you're not Dixie? That you're just her half sister, Di?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Zach (to Kendall): You've got this beautiful glow about you. Is that because of me or because you're carrying Ryan and Greenlee's baby?
Tad (to Di): You handed us a miracle that was nothing but a shameless lie. I want you to go inside and tell your new family all about it.
