Adam: Oh. Oh.

Krystal: Adam Chandler, you better take me to bed right this minute before I downright explode.

Adam: No, no, no, wait. Wait a minute. Since -- since when did you want this -- too?

Krystal: You can be pretty persuasive. Now, quit talking and do me already.

Adam: Ooh!

Julia: Whoa, hey, good timing. A second later, you'd be knocking on my face. Are you ok?

Ryan: Somebody attacked my brother, and we both knew who it was, don't we?

Jonathan: Haven't been skating in so long, Erin.

Erin: Well, let's see what you remember. Come on.

Jonathan: It feels weird. It's wobbly.

Erin: Well, you just have to get the hang of it again.

Jonathan: Well, I -- I wasn't that good before the tumor, and now it's going -- going to be extra hard.

Erin: You're still on your feet. That's promising.

Jonathan: And I want Ryan to see, Erin. Do you think he's going to come?

Erin: Yeah, he's going to try. I still have to go get my skates. Will you wait for me?

Jonathan: Well, I can't go far in these.

Erin: Oh.

Sam: That's the psycho who killed my dad. You looking for some fun on the ice, Lavery? You guys up for giving not-guilty his wish?

Kendall: Well, true to form, Babe, you're still an idiot. It's not April, honey. And we know you're all a fool, but your holiday is a little ways off.

Babe: I assure you it's not a prank, Kendall.

J.R.: I'd watch how you speak to your new business partner. By the way, that's her.

Kendall: No way does someone this vile and tacky own a piece of Fusion.

Babe: Mm-hmm. You see, I thought it was a mistake, too, when Livia brought over the papers. Turns out it's not. Greenlee really did leave her entire share of the company to me.

J.R.: Read for yourself, K-dog. As far as the rest of you, I'll give you the Dr. Seuss version. You can trust it from this page, you can trust it by her rage, you can trust it from my mouth --

Simone: Fusion stock has just gone south.

J.R.: That's very funny, Simone, but I'd be a little nicer to your boss if you want to stick around!

Babe: J.R., please, I really don't want this to get nasty.

Kendall: Oh, because busting in my party and saying you're taking over my company is just so considerate.

Babe: I realize that I'm not your first choice to take Greenlee's place --

Kendall: You never even made the list, sister.

Babe: But she chose me, so I really think we should try to work this out.

Kendall: You are nothing, nothing, do you hear me? A total nonentity. Now get your greedy hands out of here and get the hell out of my offices, or so help me God, I will scrape those beady little eyes right out of your puny little skull.

J.R.: You might want to retract those claws, Kendall. Don't want the baby finding out how vicious Mommy is. At least let him get through one trimester with some dreams intact.

Kendall: You know what, J.R.? This is all you. This is all you. At, did I hurt your feelings? Hit too close to home when you came to see me before, so you have to con your trashy ex-girlfriend to fake me out? She's still your ex, right?

J.R.: Oh, even I couldn't come up with payback this good. Read it and weep.

Simone: My God. Greenlee can't really do this, right? She can't just sign everything over to Babe?

Ethan: It's her stock. She can -- she can give it to whoever she wants.

Simone: Then why not me? I am so over this, I swear. Even in revenge I get screwed.

J.R.: You know, I hate to kick a pregnant woman when she's down, but we can't overlook the attorney's instructions. It seems Greenlee left you a letter --

Kendall: Hey, give --

J.R.: For Babe to read aloud.

Babe: J.R., now is not the time for this.

Simone: Give me that. I am dying to hear the reasons why Greenlee screwed over the rest of us. "Dear Kendall -- surprise! Just when you thought you'd gotten rid of the dead weight, I'm betting Babe will run Fusion into the ground by the time your baby arrives. What a fitting shower gift. Consider it sent. Don't waste your energy trying to overturn my decision, it's ironclad. She's all yours. I'm sure you're probably wondering why --"

J.R.: Come on, Simone, you're killing me. This is the best part.

Kendall: Would you read it?

Simone: "I'm sure you're probably wondering, why Babe? Simple -- I figured one lowlife, baby-stealing bitch deserves another." "Have fun losing everything you've worked so hard for. Oodles of faith. Love, Greenlee."

Krystal: Oh! Ooh, you want to handcuff me, you devil, you?

Adam: Just wait -- now, wait a minute! Just a minute ago you couldn't -- you didn't want to be anywhere near me, have nothing to do with me, and now you've turned into this wild woman?

Krystal: And you have got yourself to blame for that, you sexy old fool. Yeah, sure, I hated your guts when I walked in here. But the second you told me you were falling for me, something detonated inside of me, and it is just aching to be hosed off. One for you and one for me. One for you and one for me.

Adam: Oh, oh, I just remembered, I've -- I've got an important conference call to make.

Krystal: Oh! Oh, you want to play office? I make a fine secretary. "Adam Chandler, phone call on line 2."

Adam: No, no, Krystal, I'm serious. I'd completely forgotten. These are bigwigs in Tokyo and London. Can't wait.

Krystal: Yeah, I thought you meant it when you said you were falling for me. You were just messing with me.

Adam: What are you doing? Don't do that!

Krystal: Was this just some big scam that you cooked up to get me to admit how I really feel about you? Huh? Well, it's working. Joke's on me. Are you happy?

Adam: No, I'm not happy. And I was -- how you really what?

Jonathan: Hi, Sam. Who are your friends?

Sam: This is Jason. This is Matt.

Jason: What's up?

Sam: I hope you don't mind us coming over here uninvited. My buddies here just wanted to see what a real-life murderer looks like up close.

Matt: Dude doesn't look like he could take out anybody.

Sam: Oh, no, no, no. This is just the big stupid act he's pulling. Right, Jonathan?

Jonathan: Uh -- I had a tumor, but they took -- took it out.

Sam: Oh, did they take your brass with it? Come on, you psycho freak, take a swing at me!

Erin: Get away from him!

Sam: Oh, so now your little sister's fighting your battles for you? You know, that's not very good for the crazed-killer image. Why don't you be a man! Come on!

Erin: Hey! Hey, stop it! Leave him alone.

Aidan: I'd listen to the lady if I were you. Show's over, boys. Sam, take your friends and move the party somewhere else, or I'll move it for you.

Ryan: Somebody leveled Jonathan with a punch to the jaw. Now, of course, his story is that he just fell down, and I should drop it. Apparently, this all happened while he was taking his Life Skills class that he's now taking. He told me about how nice his teacher was, Julia Santos. You were there, Julia. You know what happened.

Julia: I know how hard things have been for you lately with Greenlee and Jonathan and the baby.

Ryan: Please, please, just say it was Zach. Please, just say it was Zach that hit my brother.

Julia: Don't go after Zach. It's not going to prove anything.

Ryan: You can't seriously be protecting this jackass?

Julia: No, Ryan. I'm trying to protect you.

Jonathan: It's ok, Aidan. I -- I can take care of myself.

Sam: Yeah, why don't you let the killer defend himself? My dad didn't get any backup. Why should he?

Aidan: Leave, Sam, and take your friends with you. No one's getting hurt here today, all right?

Sam: That's your opinion. We have other plans.

Aidan: Look, I'm on to this, and you're mucking it up. Do me and you a favor and go.

Sam: Let's get out of here.

Aidan: And I'll take that, thank you.

Matt: Hey, man, what's your problem?

Aidan: Have you got any ID for these? One you didn't make on the home computer?

Sam: Come on.

Erin: You followed us here?

Aidan: I think what you meant to say was "thank you for following us here, you saved my brother from choking on a hockey stick."

Erin: "Thank you," huh? Oh, this is total harassment, and it's worse if you're the one who gave Jonathan that bruise.

Aidan: I didn't lay a finger on him. Did I, Jonny?

Jonathan: No, no, Erin, he didn't.

Erin: But you admit you've been following him, so you must know who did hit him, then.

Aidan: Oh, come on. If you are so curious, why don't you ask the guy himself? He's standing -- sort of standing -- right there.

Erin: He won't tell me.

Jonathan: I fell.

Aidan: Well, maybe he doesn't want his sister hovering around his every waking move.

Jonathan: That's -- that's not true.

Erin: Hey, it's ok, it's ok. Just sit down. You are the most arrogant, annoying -- Jonathan was hit on a daily basis growing up, all right? My father used to punch him into oblivion and then threaten him not to tell anyone or else he'd make things a million times worse. Jonathan is just doing what he was taught -- pretending nothing happened. There wasn't a whole lot I could do about it when we were kids, but that's different now.

Aidan: You can't do much without a name.

Erin: You don't want to clue me in? Fine, fine. You just tell whoever hit my brother that next time they're going to have to go through me. And -- and as for you, you creepy stalker, you stop harassing Jonathan, stop following us, or I will file charges against you with the police.

Aidan: Why don't you do what you have to do, and I'll do the same.

Julia: So it was a crime when it was your brother who was getting beaten up, but now that it's Zach, it's justice?

Ryan: Pretty much.

Julia: He didn't go after Jonathan for kicks. Somebody tried to kill Kendall. He felt pretty sure that it was Jonathan.

Ryan: Oh, come on, Julia. Kendall was just a convenient excuse. Zach has been dying to pound Jonathan.

Julia: No, I saw Zach’s face when he backed away. He jumped on your brother in a fit of rage. He was defending his wife. He actually seems to care about her.

Ryan: Well, I actually care about Jonathan, and I am telling you that he had nothing to do with any of that, so I can't let Zach get away with this.

Julia: Ok, so you beat up on him the way that he tried to beat up on your brother, and then pretty soon Aidan piles on, and then maybe Jack, and then maybe your sister gets involved. Next thing you know, the whole town is at each other's throats. People are just going to hate him more than they ever did before. Ryan, I've done vengeance. I know what it feels like. Just forget about Zach. Just let it go.

Adam: I wasn't really lying when I said I was drawn to you. I -- I wasn't expecting -- you came on rather strong. What did you mean, how you really feel about me?

Krystal: Is it that hard to grasp?

Adam: Yeah.

Krystal: We both admitted that the sex that we had on our wedding night was near incredible.

Adam: Yeah.

Krystal: As much as I hate to say it, those three rolls in the hay are hard memories to shake.

Adam: Four. Don't forget the --

Krystal: Oh, right. Well, it sort of makes a person see somebody through different eyes. At least it does me. So maybe I don't hate you with as much gusto as I did. Maybe the feelings that I have for you --

Adam: No, no -- there, you said it again. "Feelings." Feelings about me? That's -- that's ridiculous. You -- you've got to be lying --

Krystal: Oh, fine. Fine. Go on believing that. Maybe I won't make an idiot of myself any more than I already have.

Adam: Uh --

Babe: Kendall, I understand that you've been completely blindsided by this big news, but at some point you're going to have to get used to it. I am a part of all this.

Kendall: Oh, the hell you are. I will destroy this company before I share it with garbage like you.

Simone: Ix-nay "destroy the ompany-cay" alk-tay, ok? Peeps with cash still in the house. Dear guests, as you can see, Fusion is undergoing just a wee little staff shuffling. But I can assure you this will in no way affect the quality of our fantabulicious products. You can't get dynamic ideas without dynamic people, and we have a lot of dynamic.


Sam: Dani, why don't you take our dear guests over to the samples table, and let them see for themselves how amazing the line is -- and be mucho generoso.

Danielle: Sure thing. Now, who hasn't tried our shimmer-bronze lip-gloss? Right this way.

Ethan: You could be on Broadway with those tappers.

Simone: Oh, I don't even know why I bother. It's not like I have any real connection to this company.

J.R.: Seems your old pal Greenlee didn't leave any stone unturned.

Kendall: Oh, like you would know from stones.

Babe: Kendall, we really need to talk about this.

Kendall: Oh, God, you're like a bug. Why are you still here? Please leave now before I toss you down the stairs.

J.R.: Be nice to Babe. She might not sign off on your spring colors.

Kendall: Just get out, both of you! You don't belong here.

Babe: Yeah, I do. I -- I didn't ask for this opportunity, but I would be a bigger dummy than you think I am to walk away from this. I have never had it this good, so if that means you've never had it this bad -- sucks for you. You can't scare me off, Kendall. There's a new face at Fusion. Get used to it.

Adam: Your feelings for me haven't changed. You would be thrilled if I walked face first into a careening bus. The warm fuzzies have no place in or access to our relationship. You know that and so do I.

Krystal: Then I was right. All that malarkey about you having warm fuzzies for me was nothing but a careening busload of horse pucky, and for what, Adam? Why even go there? Are you that desperate to get rid of me?

Adam: How was I to know you'd take it that far?

Krystal: Well, contrary to popular belief, I am not made of steel. It's not easy lying in this big old fluffy bed night after night, knowing that your hot bod is just inches from mine, and I'm not able to touch it or kiss it or -- do you have any idea how many times I've relived our night together in Crow Hollow? Huh? The creaking bed, the hoots and the hollers? You must have a pretty low opinion of yourself if you thought that you could come on to me again and not send me completely over the edge.

Adam: I'll have you know I have a very healthy opinion of myself, and I am more than aware that I am more than minimally attractive.

Krystal: We, then you shouldn't blink if I feel something more than disgust for you. It shouldn't surprise you in the least that I -- I ache to feel your arms around me again. The thought of your body pressed against mine just makes me hotter than hot. But it's all a big joke to you, isn't it? I absolutely crave another night with you, and that just adds up to a big pile of diddly to Mr. Adam Chandler. I mean, what's a -- what's a worked-up, sex-starved woman to do?

Adam: Oh, hell. Why not?

[Krystal squeals as Adam picks her up, kisses her, and falls onto the bed.]

Ryan: Everything you just said makes perfect sense -- for you. I get -- I get why you're so against revenge. I get that, but I'm not thinking about this as vengeance. I can't just stand back and watch people hurt my brother, because he's not going to fight back, so I have to fight back for him to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Julia: Well, that's fine, as long as you know that going after Zach isn't going to change the way anyone feels about Jonathan. That's going to take time. Ryan, I'm a nurse. I understand the whole medical side of it. I understand that Jonathan wasn't himself when he did those terrible things. But I watched him draw a map in my Life Skills class, and he -- even I couldn't stop myself from thinking those were the hands that killed Edmund.

Ryan: Well, he's got to live with those hands every single day. He's got to look at them every day, knowing what he did, and he's dealing with it.

Julia: Exactly. It's not easy for him, it's not easy for us. But if you want people to forget Jonathan's crimes -- well, you're going to need help and you're going to need friends. You can't do it through force and strong-arming and bullying. I know that you love your brother, Ryan, and you want to protect him, but that's just not the way to do it.

Ryan: You're right, and the way is becoming real clear. The sooner we leave this town the better.

Erin: For what it's worth, I don't think we'll be in Pine Valley for that much longer.

Aidan: Didn't I suggest that to you weeks ago?

Erin: God, you're annoying.

Aidan: And you're not making sense.

Erin: Then I will say it slower if that'll help.

Aidan: If Jonathan is so innocent, or as innocent as you say he is, what's wrong if I check up on him once in a while?

Erin: Oh, no, no, no, no. No, not "check up." Don't try to sound so considerate. You're stalking him -- just so we're clear.

Aidan: "To-may-to," "to-mah-to." What is it to you?

Erin: I'm -- I'm sick of people hounding him, looking at him like he's some kind of alien or something.

Jonathan: Erin, really, it's ok because maybe if Aidan follows, then he can see that I'm good now. You want to go ice-skating?

[Music plays]

Danielle: Bye-bye. Thanks for coming. And don't forget -- Fusion is so fantastic that even though the personnel's a little sketchy, the company can basically run itself.

Simone: But it won't. Ok, bye-bye. Ok, Dani, I know you're trying to help, but, really, I think you should leave the damage control to me.

Danielle: Sorry.

Simone: It's ok. It was a nice try, though. Hi. Oh, my gosh, that is so yummy.

Danielle: You can barely tell she's freaking inside. She's good.

Ethan: Fantabulicious.

Kendall: I don't give a flip what this document says. I'll reverse it. I'll have lawyers crawling all over you before the sun goes down.

J.R.: And I'll have more crawling all over you.

Babe: Ok, ok, we could go back and forth about this all day and all night. It was Greenlee's choice who she gave her stock to. I'm your new partner, Kendall, like it or not.

Kendall: I hate it. What is wrong with you, J.R.? What is this, turn on Kendall month? What, is this some ploy to get back in her pants?

J.R.: Watch it, Kendall.

Kendall: Oh -- oh, don't tell me Babe is still in the dark about you going all soft? Oh, oh, Babe, you are going to love this. J.R. is actually starting to fall for you again.

J.R.: Come on, Babe, let's get out of here.

Babe: You know what? No, I'm finally interested in hearing something Kendall has to say.

Kendall: Mm-hmm, yep, he told me everything, even about the big test he ran on you. See, he used Del to see if you were the real thing or if you were a liar. I told him once a heartless pig, always a heartless pig.

J.R.: You would know.

Kendall: Yeah, but for some pathetic reason, he seems to think that you're the real deal. The thing is he just doesn't want to love you, because he's afraid he'll be a sap. Well, you are a sap, but I'm not. So you want to be tied to this mess for the rest of your life, go for it, but I sure as hell will not be.

Babe: You'd say anything to freak me out.

Kendall: Oh, that's true, but the jerk is falling for you.

Babe: So why are you telling me this? So he'll go off on me so I can listen to him rant for the three billionth time about how much he hates me? You know what? Save your breath. I know how you feel. And as for you, I will be back. I am part owner of this company, and there's no way I'm letting it slip through my fingers. I don't care what you want.

J.R.: And that smell, ladies and gentlemen, is Kendall’s last bridge burning.

Kendall: Yeah, well, if you're the bridge, collapse already. Go ahead, go after her, J.R. Make an honest woman of me.

J.R.: Do you have any friends? After what you did to Ryan and Greenlee, is there anybody in this town who doesn't hate you?

Kendall: Probably not.

J.R.: See, the funny thing is I would've stuck by you.

Kendall: Yeah, you really proved that when you came in here parading Greenlee's final slam on me.

J.R.: Does it bother you, Kendall, being pregnant and alone, despised? I guess not, because you're making damn sure it stays that way.

Simone: Kendall, I really think we should --

Kendall: Free food, free drinks, and free entertainment! Whoever says Fusion parties are a bust?

Ryan: Well, uh, nice knowing you.

Julia: So you're going to leave Pine Valley just like that?

Ryan: The reason that we came back was for Greenlee, and now she's gone. And you said it yourself -- no one wants to see Jonathan walking down the street. So I add all of that up, and it equals pack up and get out.

Julia: What about your baby on the way?

Ryan: Well, Kendall’s not even sure -- I mean, she might not even have it.

Julia: And you're ok with that?

Ryan: I told her that I would accept whatever decision that she makes.

Julia: Still, until you know for sure, don't you think you'd want to stay? I could help you with your brother.

Ryan: You could help? What are you going to do? You going to start a one-woman redeem Jonathan campaign? It's going to take a lot more than that.

Julia: I could talk to Zach, get him to back off. Your brother responded really well to that first Life Skills class. I've heard how he trips on his words and how he has to search his memory to put simple ideas together. A class like that is ideal for him.

Ryan: What happens when the next guy decides that he shouldn't be out in a public place and gives him a shot or, even worse, I get a phone call from the coroner?

Julia: Well, I can try to protect him when he's at the hospital. I don't know, but maybe leaving Pine Valley is the best thing. Why don't you just take some time to figure that out, see how it goes? You can always leave.

Ryan: Ok. Ok, no one-way tickets just yet. Thank you.

Jonathan: You -- you better go get your skates, Aidan, because they won't let you on the ice in your shows.

Erin: He means "shoes."

Aidan: Thanks for the invite, but I think I'm going to sit this one out. You two have fun, though.

Jonathan: We will.

Erin: I'm -- I'm sure we'll be seeing you, you know, hiding in bushes, peering through binoculars.

Aidan: I'll be around.

Jonathan: He's sort of nice.

Erin: I wouldn't get too chummy with Aidan.

Jonathan: Why, Erin? I -- I need friends, and Ryan will like Aidan following me.

Erin: I wouldn't be too sure about that.

Jonathan: Yes, because Aidan can see I'm good, and he'll tell Ryan, and that means I'm telling the truth.

Erin: Ryan -- Ryan can't know about this, ok? Promise me you won't tell him.

Jonathan: Erin, but he will -- he will like it, Erin. I know he will.

Erin: No, no, he won't. He'll very upset to hear that people still don't believe you've changed. And Ryan is dealing with enough right now. He doesn't need to worry about this, too. I will race you to see who can skate the farthest without falling!

Jonathan: Ok. Ok. Ok --

Erin: Ok.

Jonathan: Ok, ready, set --

Erin and Jonathan: Go!

Krystal: Adam -- Adam --

Adam: Hush, hush, hush --

Krystal: Adam Chandler! You get your hand off my backside, or I am going to crush every one of your fingers and shove them down your throat!

[Krystal laughs]

Krystal: You feel as duped as you look?

Adam: You -- you --

Krystal: "You -- you --" you a little tongue-tied, are you, schnookums? Nothing a cold shower won't fix. Yeah, I thought it might be fun to give you a taste of your sneaky medicine, and I was right. It feels great.

Adam: Yeah, they used to burn women like you at the stake.

Krystal: Boo. Oh, and by the way, I know all about that merger going down with Chandler Enterprises. Not a darn thing that's going to keep my hand out of that pot of gold -- not even the ugly threat of you falling in love with me.

Babe: You should leave, J.R.

J.R.: Not until we've talked about what Kendall said. Look, Babe, I never thought that I was going to be here --

Babe: Ugh! I said get out!

J.R.: Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Come on, don't -- no, don't throw that! Don't throw --

Babe: Ugh! You keep begging, you underhanded snake!

J.R.: Come on, Babe, I'm serious! Can we just talk about this?

Babe: Why? Why? Did you come up with some brilliant spin on your drive over here, something that makes you look totally blameless and me look like a bigger -- even bigger idiot? Forget it!

J.R.: No, no, no! Listen -- listen, you're not a fool, you're not an idiot. I should've never played it like this.

Babe: Don't. I don't want to hear any more lies or any more excuses. I know how much you hate me. I don't like it, but I've accepted it. Let's just leave it at that.

J.R.: I don't know if that's true anymore.

Babe: Why? Del give me a passing grade? I didn't take you for a million, so I guess I'm not the devil incarnate after all.

J.R.: Yeah, something like that.

Babe: Bull! You were waiting for my defenses to go down so you could kick me in the teeth even harder.

J.R.: Yes! Look, if I found out you were playing me, I would've struck back. I mean, after what you did to me, I can't exactly put blind faith into you. If I knew that you were setting me up, I mean -- Babe, I had to know for sure.

Babe: Yay for me. I passed your stupid test. Spare me the certificate of achievement. I want you gone for good.

Kendall: I am Mr. Slater's wife. I own half this casino. The gaming licenses are in my name. Now, you may be my husband's assistant, but I pretty much own you, too. So if you want to keep your job, you will do what I say.

Man: Yes, but --

Kendall: No, I want the last four financial reports for both the hotel and the casino on my desk right away. Plus I want a hamburger, extra cheese, no mayo, pickle on the side, and a cosmo with a lemon twist. Ah -- not another word.

Danielle: Fusion is 100% on track. You know what they say about creative people.

Simone: That they may be a little temperamental, but that just means how passionate they are.

Woman: Thank you.

Ethan: Kendall's very compassionate about Fusion.

Simone: Thank you for coming! Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa. God, what a day.

Danielle: Oh, I'm sorry about the whole foot-in-the-mouth thing.

Ethan: Oh, no, you took it out when it counted, and to be honest, I think the two of you staved off a major revolt amongst the buyers today.

Danielle: I hope so. If you two don't mind, I'm going to take off. I'm beyond beat.

Simone: No, of course. You know what? You were wonderful. Go rest.

Danielle: Thanks.

Simone: Oh, God. You know what? This is so unfair!

Ethan: What is? What Kendall did to Greenlee, or what Greenlee did to Kendall?

Simone: All of that, and what Greenlee did to me. You know, this company could've totally taken a nosedive today, and, you know, who saved the day, huh? It wasn't Kendall. No. It wasn't Ms. Partial Owner, bubble-head Babe. No, it was me, Ethan. Me -- with, you know, the help of you and Dani, of course. You know, what do I have to show for it, huh? Just a big, fat mess I have to clean up, and not even the slightest buzz.

Ethan: You're right. You deserve better.

Simone: I work my butt off around here. I always have. And for what? You know, I've got one boss who's arguably bonkers. You know, and that's just going to get worse the fatter she gets. And I have another boss, a new one who's a total dumbbell, with bad roots to boot. I'm telling you, if you were not the major partner here, I would totally take my brilliance elsewhere. Oh, great. Now what?

Ethan: Call it an early Christmas present.

Simone: Oh. Holy holly berries. I have not been this good. Have I?

Ethan: You like it?

Simone: Well, you know, it's not those great boots I saw at Lacey’s. What, are you kidding me, Ethan? I could cry. You sure you want to do this?

Ethan: Oh, I -- I should've done this a long time ago. Look, you are now officially a partner in Fusion. You have the same share as Kendall, you have the same share as Babe. You saved this company today. If anyone deserves a part of it, it's you

Simone: I don't know what to say.

Ethan: Come here.

Man: Will there be anything else, Mrs. Slater?

Kendall: Uh-uh.

Julia: Kendall, my God! How stupid can you be?

[Kendall screams as Julia slaps the drink out of her hand.]

[Jonathan laughs]

Jonathan: You made it!

Ryan: Me miss out on an afternoon with Hockett? Forget it. Hey.

Erin: Hi.

Jonathan: Isn't it great, Erin? Now we -- now we can be happy.

Ryan: Now you can be happy? Why? You weren't happy before? Did I miss something?

Erin: Other than Jonathan falling on his rear a couple hundred times, no, nothing.

Jonathan: And Erin won the race. I -- I fell more than she did.

Ryan: Ah.

Jonathan: Do -- do you want a hot chocolate?

Ryan: Sure. Ok.

Jonathan: I'm get you a hot chocolate.

Ryan: Thank you. You sure I didn't miss anything?

Erin: No. Everything is fine now that you're here.

Adam: Who told you about the merger?

Krystal: Palmer did. He thought you might try to pull something to get rid of me before half your shares and profits became mine.

Adam: God, how I loathe that man.

Krystal: Yeah, well, he loves to stick it to you, too. You know, it must be kind of catchy, because it's on my new list of things to do, too.

Adam: Yeah, you two have so much in common, why don't you marry him? He has money, and he'll probably croak a lot sooner than I do.

Krystal: Oh, and miss out on that big old cash cow coming my way from this here merger? Uh-uh. I know you hate to see me go, but I think I'm going to open up one of those online brokerage accounts, familiarize myself with the stock market. You gave me some really good tips on investing all that money I got coming my way.

J.R.: You can't blame me, Babe. If you tried to set me up, I get it. I mean, how can a person trust another person when there's been so much bad blood?

Babe: Maybe you're right. Maybe I -- I pushed too hard, gave you reason to be suspicious. I -- I was working so hard to find this happy balance with you, J.R. I just -- I guess I forced it and -- when I should've just let it happen naturally.

J.R.: I don't think you pushed that hard.

Babe: I've been living in a dream world, J.R., and I actually thought that we had jumped a major hurdle, and I thought you were actually starting to care for me again. But don't worry. I know it's stupid and embarrassing, and I'm over it now. After today's disaster, it pretty much brought me crashing back to earth.

J.R.: There's nothing to be embarrassed about.

Babe: Yeah, there is. I'm really sorry that I put you through all this. I'm sure you just want to go back to how it was. But I'm hoping that you can at least give me back my three hours of visitation. I mean, that way you'll have enough time to get out of the house before I get over there, and you'll never have to see me. And don't worry about me hanging on to the fantasy of us getting back together. I get it now. Your feelings for me aren't going to change.

J.R.: See, that's the problem. Things have changed. I care about you a lot more than you think.

[J.R. kisses Babe]

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

Josh: Erica, I'd like to introduce you to my new assistant.

Erica (to Amanda): You're fired.

Kendall (to Julia): Greenlee just left town, and now your hooks are right into Ryan.

Ryan (to Jonathan): I need you to tell me everything that happened.

Jonathan (to Ryan): Please don't make me say it. I'm so ashamed.

J.R. (to Babe): The fight's over, you win.
