Amanda: Hi, and welcome to "Amanda, The New Beginning." This show is all mine, 100% Amanda Dillon, me all the way. You want me to give you what you want, and that's what I'm going to do. You want me to be good, I will be the best. I swear, I will do you proud.

Jamie: Done.

Amanda: Jamie -- what are you doing here?

Jamie: Well, I came for some of this.

[Josh watches Jamie and Amanda kissing through the closed-circuit TV monitor.]

Josh: Scapegoat screwing up yet again. One step closer to taking down Erica.

Erica: I can't tell you when it first came to me. I needed time to sort it out.

Jack: Well, here, just -- just come on in here. Now, hang on a second, because you're absolutely trembling. What's going on?

Erica: I placed Greg Madden. He is not just some man I met at a party. I mean, I remembered his eyes. And I could see the -- the bottom portion of his face covered by a surgical mask. And I could hear his voice saying to me "Relax, breathe."

Tad: Erica, are you sure you don't want to sit down?

Erica: Greg Madden terminated my pregnancy. When your brother, Jeff, and I were married.

Jack: Wait a minute. He -- he knew this, and he hid this from you?

Erica: Greg said that he -- he thought it would be too inappropriate and indelicate to remind me.

Tad: Oh, no, it's so much more appropriate -- let the memory come back and smack you in the face all on its own.

Jack: So he terminated your pregnancy, and he made Kendallís possible?

Erica: It can't be a coincidence.

Tad: Yeah, and let's not forget that Kendall is still under Madden's care.

Erica: Oh, Madden made sure that Kendall got pregnant by Ryan as a part of some sort of sick plan.

Kendall: Your message said that you'd be here if I needed you. You're really moving back in? There's a lot of Greenlee around.

Ryan: In every chair and every window. I see Greenlee everywhere.

Adam: It's a trick. Babe set you up, and you fell for it. Now, leave her there, and bring my grandson home. J.R., J.R., she's cashing in on your fear. She probably set up Little Adamís kidnapping. But there's no maniac roaming around Pine Valley. She's right there with you, right now. You've given her a golden opportunity to hook you and reel you in. J.R.? Have we lost our connection? J.R., are you there?

J.R.: I'm exactly where I want to be, and I'm staying.

Adam: Have you learned nothing from me about handling women?

Babe: I put Little A down for his nap, and Winifred is there with him. And Bruno is standing guard.

J.R.: What's that?

Babe: It's a surprise. But you only get it when you give me one.

J.R.: Ok.

Babe: Oh, no, no. Apologize.

J.R.: Well, how would it be a surprise when I'm getting ordered to do it?

Babe: Because it's a surprise when you follow an order, especially if I'm the one who gave it to you.

J.R.: And what am I apologizing for?

Babe: For being obnoxious when you woke up this morning.

J.R.: I'm not a morning person.

Babe: Hmm.

J.R.: All right. Let's say I apologize. What do I get in return?

Babe: You dirty little creep, you. Last time you apologized, we wound up having sex.

J.R.: And still, that's a great way for you to say, "Apology accepted." Ok. So, I apologize. I am so sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I've never been so sorry! Damn, I -- you know, I almost forgot. I'm sorry!

[Janet chuckles as she sees Jonathan leave the hospital.]

Janet: You nervous? Oh, I don't blame you. It is just getting bigger, bigger.

Jonathan: Excuse me?

Janet: Your exploits. Our secret. Wow! You just can't be stopped.

Jonathan: I didn't do anything.

Janet: Oh, yeah, sure. You did a whole lot of nothing, terrible nothing to a whole lot of people. Let the bad times roll! You have really topped your naughty self this time.

Jonathan: I didn't push that woman in the water. I pulled her out. I took care of her.

Janet: Oh, the Di-sicle is old news. I'm talking about all the other people that you've "taken care of."

Jonathan: I found Little Adam. I rescued him.

Janet: And then there are those less fortunate. Oh, take that little worry furrow out of your brow. I'm not going to say a word to anybody. And without those worry lines, you're really quite attractive. Oh -- brainstorm. Do you know what? You just stay right there. Hold on one minute. All right, now, watch the little birdy. Say "Cuckoo." Ha-ha-ha! For posterity.

[Janet takes a picture of Jonathan with her cell phone.]

Jonathan: What? Whose posterity?

Janet: Well, you're my new friend, and I have pics of all my new friends.

Jonathan: I'm -- hmm -- I'm leaving now.

Janet: Happy trials. Oh, I mean, happy "trails," amigo.

Image: And who is he supposed to be, Sleepy or Dopey?

Janet: He is a very useful accessory, so clam up.

Image: Involving Jonathan Lavery is a mistake. He's just not all there. Of course, look who I'm talking to.

Janet: You're wrong. The lesser Lavery is going to be very useful in taking the heat off Amanda, and I think that if he knew my precious, beautiful little girl, he wouldn't mind giving up his life, his liberty, and happiness for her sake. Jonathan is going to give up his future for hers.

Jack: Sweetheart, when you confronted Madden, what'd he have to say?

Erica: Oh, he didn't incriminate himself in any way.

Tad: You're sure? He didn't hint about any kind of motive for why he would have done this to Kendall?

Erica: No. Do you think maybe it's subconscious? Do you think maybe he had some sort of a transformation, and so making Kendall pregnant somehow makes up for terminating my pregnancy all those years ago?

Jack: One thing I know for sure is that we have nothing to charge him with. I mean, your procedure, Kendallís procedure, they were legal.

Tad: Oh, come on, Jack. Ethically the guy's definitely on shaky ground.

Jack: I couldn't agree with you more, but we have nothing to use against him in court, Tad. I mean, I can't very well have him put away for falling in love with Erica.

Tad: No. Prisons would be overflowing. Ok, then, folks, well, I'm sorry. Then all we got right now is one slick, smarmy doc, because I haven't been able to uncover anything in his past.

Erica: Then we'll keep at him.

Jack: No. Honey, you've done your job. I'll take care of Greg Madden from here on out. You don't ever have to see him again.

Jamie: So, I take it Erica's left the building.

Amanda: Yeah. But before we go for an X rating, hold on. I wouldn't mind Paris Hilton's money, but I'm not exactly after her Internet-vided rep. So, what are you doing here?

Jamie: You don't mind that I messed up your tape?

Amanda: You made it perfect.

Jamie: Well, what was it for, anyway?

Amanda: Well, Erica had me get some stock footage so that video camera was here from a thing we did for backstage, and I thought Iíd make a tape for you.

Jamie: I don't need a tape. I have the real, live you.

Amanda: Yeah, but this is sort of like getting it in writing, only better. Besides, I -- I really appreciate everything you've done for me, Jamie you have been great.

Jamie: Hey, you don't owe me anything.

Amanda: A lot you know. Mmm.

Jamie: So how's your day been? They're keeping you busy? You ok?

Amanda: Yeah. Why wouldn't I be?

Jamie: No reason. Just asking.

Amanda: You think I've done something?

Jamie: No. Hey, if I'm staring, it's because you look extremely hot.

Josh: Good thing you caught a rich one.

Amanda: Excuse me?

Josh: You got the Wallingford bucks now, right? You can support her.

Jamie: Yeah, and what's your point?

Amanda: No one has to support me.

Josh: Well, it's the least he can do, since he just cost you your job.

Adam: Pick up, pick up. No, I don't want to leave a message. Pick up.

Krystal: Stay calm, honey pie. Don't make me call the men with the nets.

Adam: Yeah, having me thrown into a Psych ward overnight was an amusing prank for an amateur. But there's no way you're ever going to have me declared incompetent. And there's no way you're ever going to get control of my assets.

Krystal: Well, we'll just see about that.

Adam: And there's no way your daughter is ever going to have control of my son.

Krystal: The way J.R. looks at Babe? And now they're far enough away from your poisonous mouth. Now, brace yourself, wacky man, those two are hooking up as we speak. Another round of "I doís" won't be far off.

J.R.: Now I have something to tell you that I've never said to anyone before. I'm sorry. Apology accepted yet?

Babe: Hmm. Apology accepted.

J.R.: Good. So, you brought your own sleeping bag and everything, huh?

Babe: Oh, no, no, no. I am not rewarding you with sex on the beach.

J.R.: So, ok. Well, it's too sandy. I get that. Your place or mine?

Babe: No, you are going to help me put this together.

J.R.: A tent? Since when are you into camping?

Babe: It's to keep Little A and the rest of us from frying.

J.R.: Well, isn't that why God invented suntan lotion, and the application is so much more fun.

Babe: Are you just afraid that you won't be able to do it?

J.R.: Oh. So my manhood's at stake.

Babe: Mm-hmm.

J.R.: Now, give me that thing. Why don't you read the instructions? I'll set up the tent.

Babe: Fine.

J.R.: It'll be more efficient that way.

Babe: I will. "Thank you for purchasing --"

J.R.: No, no, skip ahead to "Insert a into slot B," that sort of thing.

Babe: You got it. "Choose a flat area to assemble your shelter. Remove all sharp objects such as stones, twigs, etc., from the area. Place the shelter on the flat ground and spread it out so that the poly-something floor is on the ground. Separate the poles, assemble each of the fiberglass poles, which are shock-corded for quick assembly. Pass the assembled pole section through the pole sleeves on the outside of the shelter. Poles will form an X when you've done this correctly."

J.R.: All done. What's step two?

Babe: I thought you had it finished, big man.

J.R.: One step at a time.

Babe: All right, all right. I guess we're going to have to do this together. All right.

J.R.: You know, there's so many more things we could be doing.

Babe: Yeah, but we are going to put this together if it is the last thing we do.

J.R.: Ooh, I don't think it's the last thing we'll do.

Babe: We'll see.

Ryan: I mean, don't get me wrong, I know Greenlee's gone, that this isn't her, it's not Greenlee; it's just Ė this is just her stuff.

Kendall: Right. Just stuff. You know, sometimes I still want to pick up the phone from the office and call her just to rant about something. And then I realize, even if I knew where to get in touch with her, she doesn't want to hear from me.

Ryan: Am I crazy? Can I smell her perfume? What was the name of that scent that Fusion made just for her? What was it?

Kendall: Greenlee's Green Tea.

Ryan: Green Tea.

Kendall: I'm having this baby without you.

Krystal: Poor Adam. My little nutty buddy's gone all quiet and moody, because I brought up how happy his son and my daughter might be right now?

Adam: Oh, I need a little break. Hey, well, sit down. Yeah, why don't you sit down? It's -- it's about tea time, isn't it?

Krystal: Well, yeah. I usually have a cup or two about now.

Adam: Yeah, well, I took the liberty of steeping a pot.

Krystal: You set that up?

Adam: Yes. Allow me.

Krystal: Oh. Oh, you've got to be kidding, right?

Adam: Well, it may be a little strong, but -- here, try.

Krystal: Oh, yeah, sure. I take one sip of that, and you're drinking me for breakfast. No, no. No, it's a little too early for payback poisoning, Adam. Now, you know, I expected a little bit more creativity. I'm quite frankly disappointed.

[As soon as Krystal gets up from her chair, Adam activates a device that drops a heavy sandbag down on it.]

Adam: Oh, now, I've gone and disappointed you again. Maybe I'll do better next time.

Ryan: What are you -- what are you talking about? We both decided that I would stick around through the pregnancy. That's the whole reason that I'm in Pine Valley right now.

Kendall: Yes, I know, and I think that it's wonderful that you want to be here, but I really want to do this by myself.

Ryan: He got to you, didn't he? Zach -- he doesn't want you around me.

Kendall: No, no. Ryan, this is completely my decision. This -- this is my doing. I have a baby in the works, and I did it without you knowing it, so you don't owe either of us anything.

Ryan: Yeah, that's not the point.

Kendall: Yes. It is the point. I got inseminated without your knowledge or consent.

Ryan: The point is that you're carrying my child.

Kendall: Yes, I know that and after he's born, then you can be with me to help me decide what to do. But until then, I want to do this on my own. This way, we're both free to do whatever it is we both want to do.

Ryan: Say what you really mean, Kendall.

Kendall: I'm sure Greenlee has mellowed quite a bit, and I'm sure she's not half as furious as she was when she left town.

Ryan: She didn't just leave me, Kendall. She left you, too.

Kendall: Yes, Ryan, but this was my betrayal. I was the one who did this. It wasn't you. It was all my thing, ok? Now, I'm sure, like I said, Greenlee has mellowed about you. I'm sure she's missing you and -- and if you would just go after her and go find her --

Ryan: She would suffer all over again, Kendall. I'm going to tell you exactly what I told Erin, ok? A life with Greenlee is not an option. She does not want me in her life, ok? She made that very clear, trust me.

Kendall: Yeah, but maybe she's testing you, Ryan. Maybe she's waiting for you to see if you'll make an effort and track her down.

Ryan: This is not a test, Kendall. You weren't there. You didn't hear everything that she said. Believe me, if there was the slightest chance, I would be tracking her down right now, and I'm not just saying this because I feel responsible. I care about you.

Kendall: You think that you need to protect me, because I'm with Zach, don't you?

Ryan: You're damn right I do. You don't think that I have a chance with Greenlee. You just want me, like, out of the way.

Kendall: No, no, that is not true.

Ryan: Yeah, so I don't get in Zachís face, so I don't go after him.

Kendall: There's no reason for you to, Ryan. I don't need your protection, not from Zach.

Ryan: You don't? One day you're in love with him, and the next day, Kendall, you're in the hospital.

Kendall: No, he had -- he had nothing to do with that, and you know it.

Ryan: No, I don't know that. All right, yeah, you're fine. Now you're fine, but you won't be if you stay with him.

Kendall: Oh, my God -- that's ridiculous, Ryan.

Ryan: It's not ridiculous!

Kendall: It is.

Ryan: Come on. Look at everybody that he gets close to. He hurts -- or worse -- everybody that he's close to. Look at Maria, look at all the stuff that he did to his son.

Kendall: Oh, ok, you really want to point fingers at someone who hurts the people that they're close to?

Ryan: He hates me. Do you really think that he's going to love that child, Kendall? Even if he says he will, he's lying, he won't.

Kendall: No, you're completely way ahead of us, Ryan. I have no idea if I'm even going to raise this child.

Ryan: Yeah, well, I know what he's going to want.

Kendall: Ryan, listen to me a second, ok? Just shut up and listen, please. Really hear me and believe me. Ok, you say that you care about me, so then listen. For the first time in ages, I'm actually happy, and Zach is the reason.

Ryan: You're just kidding yourself, Kendall. You're kidding yourself.

Kendall: No, I don't care what you think. No matter what you think, Zach loves me, and I really think that we can be happy together if people would just back off and leave us alone.

Ryan: Why are you doing this? Why are you falling for the whole, like, romantic fantasy thing?

Kendall: Ok, you know what? Remember when you and Greenlee got together? There was no way I would ever believe that she could make you happy. I -- I didn't trust her, I hated her, so I did everything in my power to make you two miserable, and I wasted a lot of your time together, time that the two of you could've spent being happy. I'm sorry I did that, Ryan. I'm truly sorry. But, please, please don't do it to me. Just give me this time with Zach. I know you hate him, I know he's done terrible things. A lot of people hate him, and I know he's given you all plenty of reasons to. But haven't we all done horrible things to other people? We're not perfect. And I'm willing to risk being with someone as imperfect as I am, because I love him, and he loves me. So, please, just let me take this risk, Ryan.

Krystal: That is not funny. You could've hurt me.

Adam: No, I could've killed you, if that's what I wanted.

Krystal: You are crazy.

Adam: No, what I am is dangerous. Don't bother scanning the ceiling for sandbags, because I never pull the same prank twice. There's no need. You're now officially playing hardball with a pro.

Krystal: You're desperate. And you're scared to death that you're going to lose your empire. That's why you're trying to run me off.

Adam: Don't push me, Krystal. This was only a taste.

Krystal: You're not going to scare me off --

Adam: Hmm.

Krystal: So you might as well bring it on, mad dog. But just in case you step over the edge and somehow I wind up with the angels --

Adam: No chance you're going to end up in that group.

Krystal: I've drawn up a will with a very explicit letter attached.

Adam: Ah.

Krystal: Mm-hmm. In the event of my death, no matter how accidental it might appear, the cops are supposed to swarm on you like flies on rotten meat.

Adam: Ooh.

Krystal: And while they're investigating you, my estate goes to my sole heir -- Babe. So, you do your worst. Babe will get my half of Chandler and even more once she lands J.R. So, you see, a Carey woman wins one way or the other.

Adam: Ah.

[Once Krystal leaves the room, Adam kicks over the chair with the sandbag in frustration.]

J.R.: Very impressive.

Babe: Mm-hmm. Fine engineering, sturdy construction.

J.R.: Mm-hmm. You feel protected?

Babe: I do. I feel something more than that. Don't you?

Amanda: Please, Josh, I need this job. What was I doing? I mean, what's so terrible? I turned on the cam, and I was goofing a little bit. That's no reason to let me go.

Jamie: Don't beg. It's what he wants.

Josh: No, I want her to go home.

Amanda: Josh, just listen, please.

Jamie: It's a power trip. She didn't do anything wrong.

Josh: Well, see, I'm an old-fashioned producer. I don't like the gofers doing their boyfriends in the boss' office.

Jamie: We were vertical when you walked in.

Amanda: We weren't going to go at it.

Josh: You know what? You've had too many distractions, Amanda -- the mistakes, the screw-ups.

Amanda: Jamie, can you wait outside for a second?

Jamie: Quit. Walk.

Amanda: Jamie, please. You need to leave just for a few minutes. I need to talk to him alone. I need this.

Jamie: Ok. But don't waste too much of your time.

Amanda: Josh, please. You know how much this job means to me, how much I love it. I mean, if you'd just give me one more chance, I swear I will not disappoint you.

Josh: Amanda, how many "another chances" do you expect?

Amanda: I know. I promise I will be the best employee ever. Please?

Josh: All right. Against my better judgment, I say ok, but keep the boyfriends out of here.

Amanda: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you.

Josh: All right. Now, what did Erica say? What's her ETA?

Amanda: Uh -- where? What's she doing?

Josh: You didn't find out? You were supposed to call her.

Amanda: Well, you told me to?

Josh: Amanda, an hour ago, I said, ďCall Erica.Ē Our network exec is coming by.

Amanda: Oh, I -- I don't remember that.

Josh: Jesse Johnson? Jesse Johnson slipped your mind? You know what -- it's happening again.

Amanda: No! I -- I feel fine!

Josh: Oh, yeah, but you can't remember a request I made an hour ago about something this important?

Amanda: I don't know, ok? Maybe I just --

Josh: You know what?

Amanda: I didn't hear you or --

Josh: Amanda, forget it, all right? Just -- I'll take care of it. Why don't you go tell the Wallingford heir about the no-visiting policy.

Amanda: So am I still on the payroll?

Josh: Barely, but yes.

Erica: Greg Madden is still Kendallís physician, and it makes me shudder to think of him playing God with Kendall and her baby. I swear, if he ever goes near my daughter again, I --

Jack: No, no, no, no, no, no. I will handle Greg Madden from here on out.

Greg: Handle me how, Jack?

Jack: I hear you're in love with my wife.

Jamie: It's ok. There are other jobs.

Amanda: Josh didn't fire me.

Jamie: Then what are --

Amanda: Jamie, I'm scared. I am so scared.

Jamie: Scared of what?

Amanda: I'm scared of me.

Image: You had to find a truck without shocks?

Janet: There are going to be shocks and thrills galore.

Image: Well, give me a time frame. How long?

Janet: Long enough to right the wrongs done to my Amanda and to make sure she gets everything she wants. Now, button up and put on your seat belt.

[Engine starts]

Janet: We are about to have lift-off.

J.R.: What are you waiting for? Another apology? How many do I owe you, like, 100?

Babe: Hmm, closer to 1,000.

J.R.: Well, I'm sorry.

Babe: And what do you want for that one?

J.R.: Well, we could start with a kiss, couldn't we? Oh!

[Babe laughs]

J.R.: Don't panic! I have everything under control!

Babe: Help me! Help!

J.R.: Remain calm! Report to your nearest exit in an orderly fashion!

Babe: Who are you, super usher? I can't find an exit!

J.R.: Well, then go to your nearest lifeboats! Women and children first. This way to safety.

Babe: Oh. Oh, my hero!

[Babe and J.R. roll around and kiss under the deflated tent.]

Ryan: You're not making any sense.

Kendall: Listen to me for a minute.

Ryan: No, you're not making any sense. You said it yourself. You said it. You said it's too risky to be with Zach.

Kendall: No, no, no -- I said it's a risk -- any relationship is a risk.

Ryan: Well, they're not usually dangerous.

Kendall: Listen, there's no danger here, Ryan. We're talking about love, and we're talking about my future.

Ryan: Yeah, and our baby's future.

Kendall: I know what I'm doing, Ryan. Zach is a good man. He's a good man. And I appreciate the fact -- I love the fact that you want to help me and that you want to be with me. But you cannot get involved in my relationship with Zach. You can't. You can't try to pull us apart, because it will not happen. And I don't want to end up resenting you.

Ryan: I just want what's best for you and for the baby, that's all.

Kendall: Well, then do what I ask. I'm with Zach, and I'm going to stay with Zach as long as I can. So either accept it or go away.

Ryan: Ok. Ok, I won't get in your way, not where Zachís concerned I won't.

Kendall: Well, because you can't.

Ryan: And I'm not going to follow Greenlee. I'm not -- I'm not, because she doesn't want me to, and I won't do that. I'm staying here in this penthouse.

Kendall: Ok.

Ryan: Ok.

Kendall: Ok. Ahem.

Ryan: Now, go sit down and put your feet up. You need to rest. I'll get you a glass of water. Sit down.

[Kendall sighs]

Kendall: All right. Ugh. Hey, I thought I lost this.

Ryan: You thought you lost Greenlee's scarf?

Kendall: My scarf.

Ryan: That's Greenlee's scarf. She loves that scarf.

Kendall: No, no, no, no. That is my scarf, and Greenlee loved it so much, and I would not tell her where I got it from.

Ryan: Well, maybe she just found out and got the same one.

Kendall: Yeah, I think she stole it from the office, that's what she did.

Ryan: You do?

Kendall: Yeah.

Ryan: You think she -- she used to wear that thing all around here.

Kendall: Yeah, except she wouldn't wear it around me, so I could take it away from her. I miss her, too. So much it hurts.

Greg: I'm sure I'm not the first man to love your wife from afar.

Tad: Not far enough.

Greg: Erica's a happily married woman. I wouldn't pursue another man's wife.

Jack: You followed her all the way to Pine Valley and then you withheld information how you two know each other.

Tad: And coincidentally started treating Kendall as a patient.

Greg: Kendall and Greenlee came to my clinic because Ryan Lavery was a donor there many years ago.

Tad: Yeah, another coincidence, huh?

Greg: I don't mean you any harm, Erica.

Jack: Save it, Madden.

Greg: What are you going to do, take me to court? Like, tie me up with some frivolous lawsuit?

Erica: I'm not suing you, Greg. Just stay away from me.

Jack: Yeah, and by the way, stay away from Kendall, too.

Greg: I think that will be Kendallís decision.

Jack: Why don't you get out of here?

Greg: What about my son?

Erica: Your son? I adore Josh. I'm certainly not going to punish him for something you've done.

Greg: It's time I told you a few things about my son.

[Josh views the videotape of Amanda and Jamie kissing in Erica's office.]

Josh: Could come in handy during an emergency.

Amanda I was supposed to call Erica about the network exec coming. I don't remember Josh telling me that at all.

Jamie: Hey, maybe you were doing something else when he told you.

Amanda: The network is coming. You forget everything else. You don't forget that. I have always known when a blackout was coming. I mean -- at least I thought I did. What if this has happened before? What if this isn't the first time, and I just didn't remember? I mean, I could have had hundreds of blackouts and not known it. Jamie, I could've done all kinds of horrible, heinous things.

Krystal: Adam, if you planted any land mines under that carpet, I swear I'll -- Adam? Adam? Honey, you jump out at me in a ninja costume, I might just laugh myself to death. Adam? Adam?

[Outside, Adamís shoes sit under a stone bench.]

Erica: Still hoping I'll fire your son?

Greg: You need the facts about him.

Erica: Still hoping that Josh will leave television and go back to medicine? Become another you? Well, Josh deserves better than that, and I intend to see that he gets it. I may be finished with you, Dr. Madden, but Josh -- Josh is my producer, we work beautifully together, and Josh will remain my producer as long as he wants to. And you can do nothing about that. Ok, darling, I need to get back to the office.

Jack: Ok.

Erica: Tad, I thank you for all your hard work.

Tad: Anytime.

Jack: Dr. Madden, all this -- this unrequited love you have for my wife -- get over it.

Tad: You know, just because we don't have anything to take to court right now doesn't mean I won't dig something up.

Greg: I shall keep that in mind. You have a good day.

Jamie: You really think you could be a one-woman crime spree?

Amanda: The blackouts are happening more.

Jamie: All right, well, when was the last one -- that you remember?

Amanda: On the sixth -- January 6.

Jamie: Ok. Were you able to reconstruct anything? Like where you went, what you did?

Amanda: The blackout hit me when I was here at work. And then I came out of it freezing in the park. I hadn't even put my coat on. Jamie, what? You -- you know something.

Jamie: Di went under the ice on the sixth.

Amanda: Or she was pushed. He was just leaving.

Josh: Good. On second thought, why don't you go home, too? You could probably use the rest.

Amanda: But I'm not fired.

Josh: You're still employed. Take the rest of the day off.

Amanda: Jamie, I didn't push Di into the hole in the ice. I couldn't. That would be attempted murder. I mean, you know that I couldn't have done that, right?

Jamie: Yeah, let's just get your coat and get you out of here, ok?

[Doorbell rings]

Krystal: Oh, Palmer, good, you're here.

Palmer: Mm-hmm.

Krystal: Come in.

Palmer: I was afraid he'd want some revenge.

Krystal: Yeah, well, he did try to sandbag me, literally.

Palmer: Yeah.

Krystal: But I'm learning to look up and enter rooms cautiously now.

Palmer: Well, I just cannot stand by and let that monster hurt you.

Krystal: Oh, I can handle Adam.

Palmer: Divorce him, Krystal. We can get you a settlement that'll cripple the old goat. Really, I can handle -- I can handle everything.

Krystal: That's very sweet, but I'm -- I'm fine just as I am, Palmer.

Palmer: Look, you can live with me. We can travel.

Krystal: Palmer, that wouldn't be right.

Palmer: Well, when you get rid of the old goat, then we can make everything legal -- Mrs. Palmer Cortlandt.

[Janet stands over an unconscious Adam lying out in the snow.]

Image: So why are you bagging Chandler the eldest?

Janet: J.R. threw Amanda out of their precious mansion. And as it says in some good book -- the sons are rubber, the fathers are glue. So the sins of J.R. are going to fall on you!

Image: You mangle everything. It's the sins of the father.

Janet: Hey, I don't mangle, I tweak -- edit, improve. Anyway, in the words of the immortal Leslie Gore, "It's my party, and he'll fry if I want him to." Are you ready, Adam? Let's party!

Kendall: Ahem -- well, thank you for the water.

Ryan: Thank you for not throwing it at me.

Kendall: Yeah, you're lucky. I'm glad we have things settled. So when are Erin and Jonathan moving in?

Ryan: Tomorrow. I -- I decided to give myself a night alone here. Well, as much as I can be alone with all of Greenlee's stuff all over the place.

Kendall: Are you sure that's a good idea?

Ryan: Yeah, I need to deal before they move in.

Kendall: I could stay if you want me to.

Ryan: Yeah, that'd be nice.

Erica's voice: There is something about Greg Madden. There's a feeling I just can't shake, that there's some weird connection to my past.

Tad: My father, my mother, my brothers. You have an entire dossier on the Martin family in your personal files. Why is that? What makes my family so interesting?

Erica: Greg Madden terminated my pregnancy.

Greg: It's time I told you a few things about my son.

Tad: No. No way. That's impossible.

Erica: Jesse.

Jesse: Erica. Lucky for me you're running late.

Erica: Uh-huh.

Jesse: I had time to learn more about your new co-host here.

Krystal: Marriage? Oh, Palmer, we don't have to do anything that drastic to stick it to Adam.

Palmer: This isn't about Adam.

Krystal: Oh, you don't want to get hitched.

Palmer: The hell I don't. Marry me, Krystal, and the world will be yours.

[Krystal looks uncomfortable as Palmer draws her into a hug.]

[J.R. and Babe kiss passionately on the beach.]

J.R.: You know, we might not be able to get the tent up, but --

Babe: You know, this is how I remember us, before we came to Pine Valley, before all the complications. Happy. Are you happy?

J.R.: Yes. I'm very happy.

Babe: Marry me, J.R.

Janet: Third floor, bargains, and remainders. . The curdled cream of Pine Valley society.

[Janet groans as she lifts Adam onto a truck on which lie Brooke, Opal, and Joe, all unconscious.]

Janet: Everybody out, oh.

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

Erica (to Josh): Will you take a look and tell me if I've been stabbed in the back?

Tad (to Di): You were absolutely right about my feelings for you. They have nothing to do with Dixie.

Julia (to Ryan): Get your coat. I'm taking you downtown.

Kendall (to Ryan): The marshmallows are a little scary.

J.R. (to Babe): Let's do it. We can get married tonight.
