Palmer: Put her away.

Derek: It's up to you, J.R.

J.R.: I won't press charges.

Del: You're doing the right thing, J.R.

Palmer: You can't let her walk.

Tad: Back off, Palmer. It's his decision.

J.R.: You know what -- just open up the cell.

Palmer: You can't forget what she's done. Lives have been changed.

Derek: Without Chandler testimony, we've got no case.

J.R.: You're free.

Palmer: You call this justice?

J.R.: You know, I'd get out of here if I were you.

Di: J.R., thank you, so much.

Jonathan: This -- so great. We're going to --

Ryan: Ok.

Jonathan: We're going to have a great life.

Ryan: Yes, we are, we are, but there is a long way to go yet, Hockett.

Jonathan: I'm really -- I'm really here. I'm really me. Greenlee knows? She forgived me has yet? So we can life -- live us here -- her -- too fast out of mouth.

Erin: Have we made a mistake?

Ryan: I know this is all going to work out the way it should.

Jonathan: Happy us with Greenlee. You told -- she likes me. She say that?

Greenlee: I'm not telling Ryan about my baby, now or ever.

Kendall: Did you hear Zach? He's been there. He's a father who found out too late.

Greenlee: That's Zach’s damage.

Simone: And Ethan’s. Look, they both paid for Ethan being kept a secret.

Kendall: Do you want Ryan to end up like Zach?

Greenlee: I don't care.

Simone: Ethan and Zach made sense. Ok, think how miserable they still are, because they didn't know about each other.

Greenlee: Ethan didn't have the great upbringing that my baby will have. And Zach, he doesn't know agony and suffering. Agony is what Ryan put me through, and Zach is incapable of feeling that kind of pain.

Ethan: Wow. Looks like someone lost more than their shirt.

Zach: Something like that. You followed me from Fusion. Why?

Ethan: We could ignore everything you said to Greenlee about you and me, or we could do something about it.

Amanda: You think you can just mess in my life, shoot me down whenever you're bored? As of now you are out of my way. Prepare to be filleted, you Grade-A interfering bitch!

Babe: Oh. Oh, you bring it, you skanky little ho! I will knock that tiny brain of yours right out of the park.

Aidan: Whoa. What are you trying to do there, slam it through the backboard or the basket? I guess I don't have to ask how things are going, huh? You interested in a little one-on-one?

Jamie: Think you can keep up?

Aidan: I see how it is. Basketball by rugby rules, huh?

Jamie: Well, I didn't think I had to be careful with you.

Aidan: You don't. I just like to know how we're playing the game, that's all.

Aidan: Amanda did your loaf in, didn't she?

Jamie: Did what to my what?

Aidan: It's British slang for your cranium. She scrambled your brains. Was just your brains, though, nothing lower? I mean, your heart's still intact, right?

Jamie: Hey, love wasn't part of the deal.

Aidan: Smart man. So you escaped with your pump and your plumbing intact. One of the lucky ones. I wouldn't worry about it too much. You'll get over this slump.

Jamie: What slump?

Aidan: Amanda. She's got all the attributes a man desires. I almost got caught up in that web myself.

Amanda: You stay right there, Babe. It'll make cleanup a snap.

Babe: So I guess after I left, Jamie kicked your sorry butt into the streets.

Amanda: I explained, and we made up.

Babe: Hmm, and that's what brought out this killer instinct?

Amanda: You don't get a second chance to ruin my life.

Babe: If you and Jamie were really cool, you'd probably be in bed with him right now.

Amanda: You know, I just needed some carving practice for when we have both our families over for Thanksgiving.

Babe: You know, I would probably be careful, because if that blade's not in tight, you could wind up wearing it in your eye socket. I knew this guy once --

Amanda: Save it. I'm not stopping to mess with the blade, so you can bash me. Why couldn't you just butt out of our lives? You tossed Jamie away. You set up the mattress mambo scene with Josh to get rid of him!

Babe: For his own good.

Amanda: I am for his own good! I am! We can have fun, we can have --

Babe: Really? Really? Is that where your little drug dealer friend came into the mix, Amanda? Leave Jamie alone.

Amanda: I will make sure that you leave us alone, you and your little pal with the narc on the leash.

Babe: Put the saw down.

Amanda: You put the hammer down. You ungrateful -- I was your friend, your accomplice in the Josh scheme. You don't want Jamie. Why shouldn't I have him? Why can't you just back off and let us be happy?

Babe: You actually think that I'm responsible for your troubles with Jamie? Behind his back you bought a dress, wedding rings. You were going to drug him. You blew it, Amanda, and Jamie’s out of your life for good.

Amanda: Well, then I guess I've got no good reason not to get you out of mine.

Babe: You are nuts, totally and completely insane.

Amanda: What did you just call me?

Di: I know how hard this is for you. I promise I will do all I can to make everything up to you. Thank you, J.R., I will never forget this. I do love you.

J.R.: Get your stinking hands off me.

Di: But I thought that --

J.R.: You thought I'd just fall for your crud all over again? That you can just stand there waiting bravely for the ax to fall and then all is forgiven?

Di: I didn't think everything had been completely forgiven --

J.R.: You thought that you could weasel your way back into my life. I got to tell you, you aren't worth a minute more of my time. Do you got that? A trial's just too much effort.

Palmer: Yes, but it'd be worth it. She belongs in prison.

Del: Listen here, old man --

Palmer: And you deserve a cell of your own.

J.R.: Tad, are you not participating?

Tad: Mine isn't the opinion that matters.

J.R.: Take a lesson. I've decided. She's nothing. She'll get the life that she deserves, and I won't have to lift a finger.

Palmer: But she's a con woman. She'll take advantage of another family.

J.R.: Whatever. You know, as far as I'm concerned, the game's over. You can go to hell, but I'm not going to be the one who put you there.

Palmer: Damn it! You're not Swiss. Weigh in on this.

Tad: I have. J.R. was more affected by this than anybody.

Palmer: All the more reason for a payback.

Tad: It's too late. He's right. Nothing can undo what she's done.

Ethan: Didn't expect to hear that from you, genuine regret.

Zach: I was talking to Greenlee.

Ethan: Uh-huh, about what you'd have done if you had known my mother was pregnant, how different life could have been for all of us.

Zach: I can be a very persuasive fellow when I'm called upon.

Ethan: Are you and I going to actually deal with this? Or am I going to walk out of here and pretend that I just didn't hear anything?

Zach: What, I decide?

Ethan: You don't have anything that I need to be happy, ok? I'm past needing my father's approval or a pat on the head.

Zach: Don't say that. We have a lot of things to share. I mean, think about it. We've never built a tree house together. That's what we should do, we should build a tree house, you know, a place where men can talk, where we can catch up on our father-son requirements. What do you think?

Ethan: You go build your tree house in hell.

Zach: Ethan, wait.

Ryan: Why don't you have a seat. I'm going to fill you in, Hockett, ok?

Jonathan: About Greenlee?

Ryan: First, about you and everything that's going to happen. Tomorrow, I'm going to introduce you to Livia. Livia is your attorney.

Jonathan: Wait. She will make -- make it k-o -- ok?

Erin: We're all going to work together to make it ok.

Jonathan: I'm -- I'm ready. I make up for scaring people, hurting them. I didn't want to.

Erin: We know.

Jonathan: I was sick.

Ryan: And that's what we have to prove.

Jonathan: And then Pine Valley can be home, right?

Ryan: Yeah, I mean, you know, we'll see how it goes.

Jonathan: No. No, Pine Valley will -- will be home.

Erin: That's what we want, too, Jonathan.

Ryan: But there's some steps that we have to take first, Hockett, starting with we have to take you to the police, and the police will arrest you, and they'll book you and put you --

Jonathan: Jail? Jail isn't home, Ryan.

Ryan: I know it's not, but it's going to be ok.

Erin: No, see, Ryan's been working on this for a while, all right?

Ryan: And because they have to arrest you, Jonathan, they have to. But after, the doctors are going to come, and the doctors will talk to you.

Jonathan: I like -- I like doc-- doctors best. They're for me. I'm fine -- I'm fine now. I'm fine. My doctors?

Ryan: Actually, no, these are going to be new doctors, but they're very good, and they want to help you, and there's nothing to be afraid of.

Jonathan: Because -- because I have you and Erin and a lawyer. And I'm not bad anymore, Ryan.

Erin: That's right. That's right.

Jonathan: I'm scared. I'm really scared. They -- they arrest me?

Ryan: Yeah, but after the doctors talk to you, the doctors are going to talk to all the lawyers.

Jonathan: And -- and tell the police to let me go, I'm not bad anymore.

Ryan: Well, yeah, that's what we're hoping, but, I mean, there is a chance that it might not work out that way.

Jonathan: I -- I could stay in jail?

Erin: Yeah, it might not happen, it might not happen.

Ryan: But it could, Hockett. I'm just being honest. I can't lie to you.

Jonathan: I'm good. Good people don't go to jail. I'm good.

Ryan: But you might have to. You might have to, and it might be -- it might be for a while.

Greenlee: Ryan had the chance to show what kind of father he'd be when I was pregnant. He took off.

Kendall: That was different. This is a miracle.

Greenlee: He showed his true colors. I won't share this with him. I won't give him the chance to wreck my baby's life.

Kendall: That's a crock. Stop hiding behind our baby.

Greenlee: Excuse me?

Kendall: You think you're going to look like a loser if you take Ryan back.

Greenlee: That's ridiculous.

Simone: Is that it? You're afraid that if you take Ryan back you'll look like a sucker?

Kendall: Mm-hmm, it's a pride thing.

Simone: Oh, my God, that is so stupid! Everybody knows that goeth before a fall, always.

Greenlee: Call her off now, or I'm out of here.

Kendall: Ok, Simone, Simone, let me.

Simone: Ok, you know what? Old sayings become old sayings, because they're true. But go ahead, deny it's a pride thing.

Greenlee: Ryan made me hurt so deep I thought that my bones would explode. I loved him so much, he truly was a part of my own body. Anyone with that kind of power doesn't just lose it.

Kendall: Meaning you do still love him.

Greenlee: Ryan could do it to me again, Kendall, and I wouldn't be able to stand that kind of pain a second time, not from him.

Kendall: Ryan will not screw up like that ever again.

Greenlee: You can't guarantee that and neither can he. I won't risk it. I can't open myself up to him. I can't let him in on our secret.

Kendall: You mean you won't.

Greenlee: It'd be like forgiving him. It'd be like "Hey, I survived, but what the heck, no biggie."

Simone: Wait, no, it was a biggie.

Greenlee: It was the biggest and the worst, and I won't let him do that to me again.

Kendall: I want you to look me in the eyes and tell me that you aren't still in love with him.

Erin: If you want to change your mind and go, we still can.

Jonathan: Leave Pine Valley?

Erin: Yeah, we could go tonight, you and I, and then Ryan can see us when he can.

Jonathan: No jail?

Erin: No, no jail. We can find a new home.

Jonathan: Run away. I've done -- done run before. Not now.

Erin: Are you sure? Ok, it's not too late. We can go.

Jonathan: Could -- could Greenlee run with -- run with us? Will she?

Ryan: No, she won't run.

Jonathan: I'll -- I'll stay. Make it right.

Erin: You're the boss.

Ryan: So, after the doctors talk to you, they're going to examine you, and they'll test you.

Jonathan: Better tests now -- better a test now.

Ryan: Good. That's good, because once they're done, they're going to tell everyone how you did and, hopefully, that will be the end.

Jonathan: It -- that's good.

Ryan: Yes, that's very good. But there -- now, there is a chance that they'll hold you for trial. And, Hockett, there's always a chance that you could be convicted, meaning that you could be found guilty.

Jonathan: I could -- I could be guilty?

Ryan: But not if we prove to them that you were sick at the times the crimes were committed.

Jonathan: But before bad part surgeried out. We will make them know it.

Ryan: Yes, we will.

Erin: You, you're really brave.

Jonathan: Greenlee missing. Tell Greenlee come over. I -- I will tell her -- apologize. She will love you again.

Greenlee: You know what I love? Our Fusion lip-gloss shades.

Kendall: Oh, God, what is wrong with you? Why can't you just admit that you still love Ryan?

Greenlee: If I did, it wouldn't matter.

Simone: It always matters. Sorry, but it does.

Kendall: Ryan is ready to do anything to get you back, Greenlee. He wants to prove his love to you.

Greenlee: Well, it's too late.

Kendall: Are you the same horrible girl who ripped my dress off in court?

Greenlee: Why bring that up?

Kendall: Ok, the answer's no, and Ryan's not the same guy who let you believe he was dead. That was the Ryan that left. This is the Ryan that came back.

Simone: You are good.

Greenlee: Easy for you to be so sure.

Kendall: That's because it's a fact.

Greenlee: Prove it.

Kendall: Ok, fine, let's go see Ryan right now.

Greenlee: Oh, right.

Kendall: Well, you don't want to listen to me, you don't want to hear anyone else's thoughts and opinions. Let's go to the man himself and see how he feels.

Greenlee: How?

Kendall: Quit denying your real feelings, Greenlee. Go to Ryan and see what he does, see what he says.

Simone: Do it, Greenlee.

Kendall: Yeah, you keep saying Ryan ran away. Well, who's running away now? Just please stop and face the truth. Tell Ryan about his baby.

Derek: Present this at the front desk, they'll return your belongings.

Palmer: And thank you for nothing.

Tad: Does this mean you're moving on?

J.R.: I'm done wasting my time.

Tad: Glad to hear it. I'm proud of you.

J.R.: You follow that with my mother would be so proud of me, and I swear --

Tad: I'm just speaking for myself.

J.R.: Don't, don't you tell me that you're proud of me. I don't give a damn what you feel or what you think. I do what I do for myself and not for anybody else. If I wanted to, I would nail Di. But it is inconvenient for me. You got that? For me.

Tad: Got it.

J.R.: If you still want Di, if she still makes you hot, I say go for it. Make her as miserable as you made my mother.

Tad: I was kind of hoping you'd given up on the revenge approach. I hate to see you punishing yourself.

J.R.: And your opinion means zero to me, so why don't you shove off!

Tad: J.R., please, let's just go somewhere and get some coffee, maybe something to eat.

J.R.: I'm not drunk.

Tad: I didn't say you were.

Palmer: You must be knee-walking wasted to let Di Henry get away with this.

J.R.: Look, punishment comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes when you least expect it. I just want to make sure that it really counts.

Palmer: Well, this is pure, pure Adam. You're doing exactly the opposite of what should be done just to stick it to us.

J.R.: You don't have a clue what I'm about.

Palmer: Your sainted mother must be absolutely --

J.R.: Disappointed? Rolling over in her grave? Or maybe that's just the dust that you're hearing settling, because that's all she is, Palmer -- dust. And no amount of talk will ever, ever change that.

Palmer: I'm not finished with you yet, Di Henry.

J.R.: Do you get it now? You're worthless.

Del: Come on. Let's ditch this hole.

Di: No, you -- you go on. This could take a while. Ahem. I don't want you to miss out on the fun. Go ahead. Take your best shot.

Tad: Wouldn't make me feel any better.

Di: You're actually sorry J.R. didn't press charges, aren't you?

Tad: No. I just meant what I said. His is the only opinion that counts. If he wants to let you go free, that's his decision. If I were you, I'd fall on my knees and thank God for the luckiest day you've ever had in your entire life. After that, I'd get up and I'd get out of Pine Valley and out of our lives.

Jamie: Score.

Aidan: Persistent piece of work, our Amanda.

Jamie: Huh, persistent. Nice word.

Aidan: Did she set the hook into you?

Jamie: Oh, gave it a good yank.

Aidan: And?

Jamie: And I'm one of the lucky ones that got away.

Aidan: Did she give you that look like she's just crawled through Death Valley without a drop to drink?

Jamie: And you're a frozen margarita?

Aidan: Yeah. Well, I was thinking more of a frosty pint, but whatever.

Jamie: You know, all I know is I feel lucky to be alive.

Aidan: Oh, really? Did she get that vicious with you?

Jamie: Oh, try psychotic.

Amanda: Don't be afraid, Babe. Just say it again, straight to my face.

Babe: Crazy. You are certifiable if you think Jamie will take you back.

Amanda: I am not crazy! I am completely and totally in control, always.

Babe: No, you are lost in loony land if you think you could drug people into following this psycho script that you've written for your life.

Amanda: I don't know why Jamie ever had feelings for you. You are vicious and cruel.

Babe: Oh, me? Take a look in the mirror, Amanda. You are way overdue for a straitjacket.

Amanda: You think I'm an easy target because of my mother.

Babe: I don't even know your mother, but I know severely unbalanced when it's stalking me with a power tool.

Amanda: Oh, you are so asking for this.

Babe: Oh, if your mother is as bad off as you are, maybe you could get her over here and put that saw to good use, slice open your heads and try to fix the crazy wire.

Amanda: My mom wasn't just a little off. She tortured and murdered people. Now, let's see how much like her I am. Let's see if I can stop myself from hacking you into tiny little pieces.

Zach: I proved my point, didn't I? I don't know how to be the father you want. I don't know how to be any kind of father, and you know what? Even if I did have it to do over again, I couldn't, because I don't know how.

Ethan: What am I supposed to say?

Zach: I guess if you have any kind of insight or expectations, now would be the time to share them, because I don't know how to bridge this gap. I'm -- anything, seriously. Every time I try to love someone, I screw it up.

Kendall: Ok, Greenlee, this is good. Courage, it's exactly what you need to do. No more "what ifs." Just get the whole story.

Greenlee: Stop selling. I'm here, aren't I?

Kendall: He's never going to hear that.

Jonathan: Greenlee!

Ryan: Greenlee?

Jonathan: You -- you came! You came!

Greenlee: Let me down! Let me down!

Jonathan: No, Greenlee, don't be mad, not from me! I wasn't hurt-- hurting you!

Ryan: It's ok, he's not dangerous anymore.

Greenlee: Oh, my God.

Jonathan: No, I won't hurt you, Greenlee. Shh. Be quiet.

Greenlee: Oh, my God. You stay away from me. You stay away from me. I mean it, stay away!

Jonathan: No, I'm far away. I'm far away from you.

Ryan: He's not dangerous anymore.

Greenlee: Where's my cell phone?

Ryan: No, no, no, don't. Look, I know this is a shock --

Greenlee: A shock?

Ryan: I know this is a surprise --

Greenlee: He attacked me.

Jonathan: No, no, I was hugging you! I'm happy to see you, Greenlee!

Ryan: I swear, I swear to you, Greenlee, I swear to you that he's not dangerous anymore, I swear.

Greenlee: Oh, and I should take your word, huh?

Ryan: Look, could everybody just calm down? Please, just calm down for a second.

Jonathan: This --

Ryan: Ok.

Jonathan: This scar-- scary day. It's hard.

Ryan: It's ok.

Kendall: I'm Kendall Hart -- Slater. You must be Erin.

Erin: Right. We didn't plan any of this, ok? Who'd have thought Greenlee would show up here tonight, you know?

Ryan: Greenlee, can we just go and talk somewhere, you and I, calmly, please?

Kendall: It was you.

Greenlee: To the cops, maybe.

Jonathan: No! Ryan, no cops.

Ryan: No, ok.

Jonathan: No, Ryan.

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, you called on the phone to say that Ryan was alive.

Ryan: Shh, shh.

Jonathan: Greenlee, don't be mad at me.

Erin: Yeah.

Jonathan: I'm not -- I won't hurt you.

Erin: Yeah, that was me. Hey, it's ok, it's ok.

Jonathan: No. No.

Erin: Jonathan --

Ryan: Take it easy.

Jonathan: Not yet. I have to -- I am very sorry.

Kendall: You should be.

Jonathan: I'm hap-- happy seeing you. I wanted tonight, not without yelling part. I never -- I never mean to upset you, Greenlee, never mean hurt you. You're home.

Kendall: Ryan, maybe you and Greenlee should -- Greenlee, you and Ryan should go talk somewhere private, ok?

Ryan: Yeah, I think that's a great idea. Ok?

Ethan: So that's it?

Zach: Plain as I can make it. And me rushing head-first into the wall is not going to help either one of us.

Ethan: It is some entertainment value.

Zach: Wall ain't moving.

Ethan: You have a thick head.

Zach: I hurt people. I'm dangerous to others, even people I care about. I try to help them, and I let them down.

Ethan: That must be rough.

Zach: It's how it is. I can't change it.

Ethan: No one's asking you to.

Zach: Ethan? I regret what I haven't been and everything I've done wrong.

Tad: You dodged a bullet. Palmer's out there buying a bigger gun. And J.R. is unpredictable at best. He may have called off the troops today, but that's only because he's going to drop the bomb tomorrow.

Di: You want me to be afraid?

Tad: I want you gone, before somebody tries to take you out.

Di: Well, last time I listened to your advice, I confessed and --

Tad: Advice?

Di: Ok, gave in to your threat.

Tad: It's not like you had a choice.

Di: Well, I told them the truth, because it was the right thing to do. And if you'd told them, I wouldn't have any chance with J.R.

Tad: You don't have a chance with J.R. He hates you. He hates what you've done like everybody else in this town. Palmer hates you, Jamie hates you, I hate you. So if you still have any ideas about sticking around, you just forget it, because you've done enough damage. J.R.’s hitting the bottle, Palmer's one step away from cardiac arrest, and Jamie won't even pick up his phone. Everybody wants you gone. Everybody would be happier with you gone. So stop being so damn selfish and just do it.

Aidan: Thanks, mate.

Jamie: Hey, you ever see that old show "The Twilight Zone"?

Aidan: What, that old sci-fi program on the telly?

Jamie: Yeah.

Aidan: Never watched it.

Jamie: Well, there's this one episode that ends with a bunch of people standing in line waiting to get on this spaceship. Now, they're psyched because they think the aliens are going to take them to another planet and wait on them hand and foot.

Aidan: What's wrong with that?

Jamie: Well, you see, the aliens have this book, "How to Serve Man." The only thing is it's a cookbook. See, now, I feel like the guy at the end of the line, the one that figured out in the nick of time and just stayed off the spaceship.

Aidan: Always go for the real deal.

Jamie: I survived my first real relationship and the rebound affair. Onward and upward.

Aidan: Amanda's no run-of-the-mill rebound. I think you did the deed with the she-devil herself.

Jamie: And lived to tell the tale.

Aidan: So tell me, what did I miss?

Babe: What are you running from, Amanda? Oh, bring it on, you psycho slut!

Amanda: Come on, you trashy skank!

Babe: You slut!

J.R.: Nothing like a floorshow. Whoa!

Babe: This is crazy!

J.R.: Oh, that's got to hurt. Hey, take it easy, girls. Whoa! Hey! All right, that's a low blow, that's a -- get in your corners! All right, take five, come on.

Babe: Come on, come on.

J.R.: All right, all right, that's enough, huh?

Amanda: Leave me -- get out of this!

Babe: Bring it!

J.R.: Fight's over!

Amanda: Leave us alone!

J.R.: All right, you ok, Babe?

Babe: She didn't hurt me.

Amanda: What, you're protecting her? You kidding me?

J.R.: She manages bar, and I came here for a drink.

Babe: Get out, Amanda.

Amanda: Oh, that's big talk with him behind you.

Babe: Get out!

J.R.: You heard the boss. From the looks of things, you're bad for business. All right, come on, make me throw you out.

Amanda: This is not over, Babe. Far from it! You, either.

J.R.: Ooh. Real scary.

Babe: Thanks.

J.R.: Yeah, well, I saved your butt. No more me cutting me off.

Babe: You know, I would have won if she would have fought fair. She's crazy.

J.R.: After you found your head and maybe screwed it back to your neck. How could somebody who's so good-looking be so potentially lethal?

Babe: I guess it's one big cosmic joke.

J.R.: I tell you what -- grab a glass, pull up a chair.

Babe: No, thanks.

J.R.: No? Even if I've got some really big news you might want to celebrate?

Ryan: It's ok, Greenlee, I promise.

Jonathan: You heard me say that, what I said, right? My apology? Because I -- I would never, ever do -- do a bad thing to you, Greenlee. It wasn't me.

Jonathan's voice: Did I, your brother-in-law, slip you drugs and wacked you out and damn near drove you to your death? It takes some twisted piece of evil to do that, somebody capable of anything.

Greenlee: I can't. I can't. I can't do this.

Kendall: Damn you!

Jamie: So you want a play-by-play?

Aidan: Just the highlights, just the highlights.

Jamie: Well, Amanda's quite a wild ride, but it's not until you get the bill. That's when you really get screwed.

Aidan: You can't help but hope she'll be worth the trouble, eh?

Jamie: Remind me again why you didn't warn me off her?

Aidan: Oh, come on. You going to listen to me or that body and face?

Jamie: Well, I might have -- you're probably right.

Aidan: Mate, some mistakes you just got to make yourself. It's all for your own good. Want a rematch?

J.R.: You know, if Amanda asked for a rematch, I'd say no.

Babe: So what's your big news?

J.R.: I decided not to ruin my life.

Babe: You were considering it?

J.R.: Well, I let this whole thing with Di take over everything. I think it's time for me to get back to what's important.

Babe: Such as?

J.R.: Well, Little Adam, for one. I got to let things go easier. Di Henry's in the past. I got to start thinking about the future, a future with my son.

Babe: And that's the part that I should celebrate?

J.R.: Well, I've been doing some thinking about what you said about Little Adam, spending more time with him, him having a good sense of family.

Babe: Family beyond just you, you mean?

J.R.: Yeah. Well, see, I didn't really think it through, you know, before I went off on you. Look, I know you love him.

Babe: I do, more than anything.

J.R.: So I was thinking he needs a woman's influence. He's going to need somebody full-time, he needs a nanny, and then I wondered if you'd consider the job and --

Babe: Wou -- would I? I would -- I would quit right now. I would leave a note with the keys. J.R., you wouldn't even have to pay me. Thank you, thank you. This is the best, best, most wonderful news I can remember in how long.

J.R.: There's just one thing, Babe. Look, I said I wondered. I thought about it.

Babe: Why, you need me to prove myself? I can. I would do a great job.

J.R.: Look, just relax, Babe. It's not practical. It would never work, not in the long run.

Babe: No, I would be a great nanny.

J.R.: Hmm? Yeah? Parlez-vous francais? Italiano? Español? No, see, you barely mastered English. No, make that American. You got to at least be bilingual.

Babe: Why? You're not taking Little Adam away, are you?

J.R.: Hello, Europe! Yeah, we're staying indefinitely. I got to get away from Di Henry. There's got to be at least an ocean between us. And the last time you say au revoir to our son, you better lay on the hugs and kisses, because you're not going to see him for a very long time.

Babe: J.R., you can't do this.

J.R.: I can, and as a matter of fact, in -- ooh -- about three hours, it's "adios, old life." What's not to celebrate, huh? Come on, Babe, congratulate me.

Tad: Breaking and entering your first minute out isn't very smart.

Di: I have a proposition for you.

Tad: I'm not interested. Get out.

Di: Hear my offer first?

Tad: Make it quick.

Di: Ok, you want me gone, out of your life, out of your town.

Tad: Yeah, something like that.

Di: I'm willing to make your dream of a Di-free world come true.

Tad: What's it going to cost me?

Di: I'll be out of town first thing tomorrow morning, I'll never try to contact you again.

Tad: How much?

Di: Just make love to me tonight.

Simone: Wow. What was that for?

Ethan: For being the smartest woman that I've met.

Simone: Oh. Why?

Ethan: Because you gave me some great advice. I'm done wishing and hoping, and I'm fed up with "maybes" or "what ifs." I'm moving forward. I cut my father loose for good.

Kendall: What in the hell were you thinking?

Ryan: Look, Jonathan was just trying to --

Kendall: No, no, don't defend him, Ryan, don't defend him. You screwed up everything, Jonathan -- everything!

Jonathan: But -- no! No, it wasn't right. Make it -- want it to be all right. I wanted it right, Ryan.

Ryan: It's ok, it's ok.

Jonathan: No, why did I do, why did I do? I made it wrong.

Ryan: It's ok, I'll make sure -- Jonathan, I'm going to make sure it's right.

Jonathan: Ryan, no, no!

Ryan: It's ok.

Jonathan: No, no, no.

Erin: Did you see her?

Ryan: No, she's gone.

Erin: Oh. Greenlee will get over it.

Ryan: Now, why did it have to be today?

Erin: Look, she'll come around.

Ryan: Jonathan?

Erin: Jonathan?

Jonathan: He went out the bathroom window. He's gone.

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

Babe (to J.R.): I'm not going anywhere until you give me your keys.

J.R.: Have it your way.

[Car starts and tires screech]

Greenlee (to Kendall): What advice did you give Ryan?

Kendall: Not to tell you Jonathan was alive.

Di (to Tad): You want me gone? Throw me out.
