Ryan: Helms, Borden, and MacArthur all came on after I left, so if I could get their CVs both professional and personal --

Woman: Yes, sir, right away.

Ryan: And will you let everybody know that I called this meeting just to be brought up to speed? I don't want to walk out of there with pounds of paperwork, ok?

Woman: Yes, sir.

Ryan: Thanks. Don't I look like I'm ready to take on Cambias Industries?

Julia: Well, you might be taking on a lot more than that. I think you may be in danger, Ryan.

Ryan: Let me guess -- Zach.

[Zach hums]

Kendall: Mmm. If that didn't smell so delicious, I'd think I was still dreaming.

Zach: There you go.

Kendall: Thanks. Nice. Where's yours?

Zach: I had coffee.

Kendall: Oh. Well, I'll share.

Zach: Yeah?

Kendall: Yeah.

Zach: You're already sharing all your meals. Vitamins, nutritions -- everything is packed into this breakfast for you and your baby.

Kendall: You cooked this?

Zach: No.

Kendall: No? No.

Zach: I hired a chef. He's next door cooking up a storm.

Kendall: I have a chef?

Zach: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: I have a private chef? I love this. This is perfect. I think maybe I probably am still dreaming.

Zach: Well, maybe the news of the world will wake you up.

Kendall: Ok.

Zach: What, that bad?

[On the front page of the Pine Valley Bulletin, is a picture of Ryan with the headline: Lavery Returns to Share Helm of Cambias Industries.]

Tad: Wow. You look like you're ready for anything.

Di: Why? What are you going to throw at me this time?

Tad: You feel attacked yesterday?

Di: No, I just wasn't sure if you were going to come back.

Tad: To be honest, that makes two of us.

Di: So why did you?

J.R.: Well, I questioned the household staff, employees at Chandler, everyone. Not a clue where my father is.

Babe: Or Mama? Where would they even go, and who sent the telegram saying they disappeared?

J.R.: Somebody who wanted us to drop everything and race back here.

Babe: To come here and find these shoes laying around?

J.R.: Yeah, like at some sort of Japanese restaurant. And these. Somebody rigged sandbags to drop on us?

Babe: Or on Adam and Mama.

J.R.: It doesn't add up. What the hell is going on here?

Image: Good God! What is your costume budget?

Janet: You cannot put a price on creativity.

Image: You better forget about the Halloween leftovers and start to deal with the sardines you got packed in the back of this tin can.

Janet: As a matter of fact, I am going to be dealing with my cargo today.

Image: Dealing? How? What is going on in that crackpot brain of yours?

Janet: If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise.

Image: You don't have a plan. This is all just an opportunity for you to play dress-up and have a human scavenger hunt.

Janet: Quite the contrary -- I am going to create a cliffhanger that is so great, it is going to leave you clinging to your frame.

J.R.: Who are you calling?

Babe: The police?

J.R.: Uh-uh. No way you're going to drag Derek and his boys into this.

Babe: Uh, well, that doesn't really make sense unless you know something I don't.

J.R.: What is that supposed to mean?

Babe: Well, maybe you have some insider information, maybe a little theory of your own.

J.R.: Yeah, I've got a theory. Your mama set up this disappearance to drain the Chandler piggy bank.

Babe: My mother did not abduct your father. If anyone's behind this, you know it's Adam. He probably has Mama someplace torturing her. Your dad's going to pay for this!

J.R.: Your mama's going to pay for this, Babe!

[Regaining consciousness, Adam looks around and finds himself in bed with Brooke, Opal, and Krystal.]

Adam: Oh, my God, how much did I have to drink? Oh, my head, my head. Am I a trigamist?

[Brooke groans]

Brooke: Ugh. What the -- am I in the basement? Adam?

Joe: Ruth, where the -- Opal?

Opal: Give me some of that quilt, you blanket hog! I -- oh. I'm dressed? My shoes!

Krystal: What? What in the --

Opal: You! Hand over my shoes!

Krystal: I don't have your shoes!

Opal: My shoes!

Adam: None of us has any shoes.

[Opal cries]

Brooke: Well, I think that's probably the least of our worries.

Joe: Where are we?

Opal: My shoes.

Joe: A warehouse?

Krystal: No, more like a packing crate.

Adam: It's a -- it's a metal box!

Opal: Oh, come on, you got to be kidding.

Krystal: No, no. We are in the back of a box truck.

Opal: Well, of course you would know.

Krystal: It's a truck!

Opal: What the hell kind of a joke is this?

Joe: It's no joke. We're locked in.

Opal: What?

Brooke: Well, can't we see out? I mean, isn't there any way to, like, tell where we are, or --

Krystal: Adam can let us out.

Adam: Sorry, I left my can opener at home.

Krystal: No, you thought this would be one, big, scary hoot. Well, we're not scared, and we are not laughing. So just tell your goons to open up.

Tad: I heard you were getting sprung today. I thought you could use a lift to Wildwind. You just survived hypothermia. I think you deserve a little special treatment, some TLC. So, I've got a couple thermoses in the car. One's got coffee, one's got soup. I got blankets, and the car seats are heated.

Di: You know, I'm not holding you to what you said yesterday.

Tad: You don't have to.

Di: Yeah. I mean, because, you know, we all say things that we -- we want to take back later, so --

Tad: I don't. I meant every word I said. I have feelings for you. And I want you to hold me to that. That's why I'm here.

Di: Yeah. And once again, right, we have to push through the -- the crowd of my fans, my friends, you know? People fighting for a chance to be the one to bring me home, so --

Tad: Actually, you did have another visitor. J.R. stopped by. I'm not the only person who was scared for you, and I'm certainly not the only person who still feels something for you. I want to make this work, you and me.

Kendall: Hmm, this is a very yummy, perfect meal. You ought to try it, Zach. It's Ryan and the paper, and you are not happy that he's back at Cambias.

Zach: I got to go to the office.

Kendall: What? You have to go now?

Zach: Yeah. I'll call you.

Kendall: No, wait a minute. No, no -- Zach, you don't get to shut down and walk out on me.

Zach: There's a lot of work at the office, you know, before the end of the month.

Kendall: You're going to go after Ryan for invading Cambias.

Zach: I don't care about Cambias and neither does he. He wants to use my son.

Ryan: Believe me, I can handle anything that Zach is going to dish out.

Julia: Well, some of his employees came into the bar with an early edition of the paper.

Ryan: Really? Announcing my return?

Julia: They said they were sure it would set Zach off.

Ryan: Yeah, that doesn't really come as a surprise to me.

Julia: One guy even said that "Lavery won't last long, because Zach can pull the plug on anyone or anything that gets in his way."

Julia: I tried to get all pals-y with them, but they wouldn't come across with the details. And when I mentioned your name, they froze me out.

Ryan: Well, maybe Zach’s guys aren't quite as dumb as they look.

Julia: And now Zach and Kendall are divorced. They're all over each other, which makes so much sense. He hates you. You're there trying to help her with the pregnancy. Don't you think that he's going to try and get rid of you?

Ryan: So, what do you want me to do? Want me to pack up and leave town? You want me to change my name or give up my life, you know, the way -- the way you did? Because I'm not. I'm not going to hide from Zach. If he wants to come after me, then I will enjoy the fight.

Jonathan: Ryan! Ryan, we're home! Where'd he go?

Erin: Probably to work.

Jonathan: Oh, right. Right, he's -- he's back at Cambias now.

Erin: Mm-hmm. Hey. Hey, what's wrong?

Jonathan: I -- I wish he was here. I did a -- did a lot of horrible things here.

Erin: Well, just don't even think about it, ok? We're starting fresh. Now, can you unpack all this stuff for me while I run back to the motel to pick up the last load?

Jonathan: Yeah.

Erin: Yeah? Ok. Well, I'll be back just as soon as I get everything in the car and check out, ok?

Jonathan: Ok.

Erin: All right.

[Knock on door]

Jonathan: Oh. What did you forget? Uh, I think you -- you have the wrong place.

Janet: I think you thought wrong, sonny.

Jonathan: Hmm. What do you -- what do you want?

Janet: I want you.

Jonathan: Me? Me? Why? What --

Janet: What's your name, kid?

Jonathan: Jon -- Jonathan Lavery.

Janet: Surprise! It's just me.

Krystal: If this is your revenge on me, Adam, why drag them into it?

Brooke: Yes, why?

Opal: And take our shoes, you sick fool!

Joe: You threatened me at the hospital. That's when we admitted you to the Psych ward for observation.

Brooke: Yeah, well, too bad they didn't hold him there.

Opal: I mean, I was just doing my -- my sunshine lady gig. Those Manolos cost me a healthy hunk of change, and you are going to replace them, mister!

Krystal: Yeah, well, my shoes weren't too shabby, either.

Opal: Oh, oh, yeah, right. Well, we'll all pitch in to get you a new pair of flip-flops.

Adam: Why would I drug myself and take off my own shoes?

Joe: He's got a point.

Brooke: Listen, I can't see anything outside, but it seems like someone left us a sort of care package here so we don't starve.

Krystal: What do you mean, care package?

Brooke: Well, there's crackers and cookies and squeeze cheese.

Opal: Anything to drink?

Brooke: Well, I don't know -- something that looks like fruit punch. And trail mix and --

Krystal: What is this? Is this some kind of kid's party or something?

Brooke: Comic books.

Adam: I'm calling for help. My cell phone's gone. Who has a cell phone? Joe?

Joe: No, mine's gone, too.

Brooke: Ugh.

Krystal: You know what? I think I was using mine when I got snatched.

Opal: Mine was in my smock pocket, and of course, it's not there anymore.

Brooke: Well, I don't have my purse, and that's where my cell is.

[Phone rings]

Adam: That's mine. Where is it?

Joe: It's coming from there, the cab of the truck.

Adam: Great.

Joe: Yeah.

Krystal: Well, fat lot of good it's going to do us in there!

Opal: Oh, we have been de-shoed and de-phoned!

Brooke: Maybe we're parked where somebody could hear us.

Krystal: If we make enough noise. Come on, all right? Come on! Help!

Brooke: Help! Help!

Opal: Get us out!

Krystal: Somebody, help!

Opal: Help! Help!

Jonathan: Who are you? Why are you following me?

Janet: Why are you asking questions you already know the answer to?

Jonathan: I don't -- I don't -- I don't know anything about you, except that -- you changed clothes, uniforms, and that you're all these different things. I mean, people, and --

Janet: Honey, I am only just myself. Always myself, but I cannot control what goes on in that mind of yours.

Jonathan: You -- are you having fun doing this? You having fun tricking me?

Janet: Maybe I'm not really here. Maybe I'm just in that jumbletron of a brain of yours.

Jonathan: You -- no, you knocked on this door, and you walked in here without me asking you.

Janet: I'm your imaginary friend, and I'm going to stick by you through fat and slim.

Jonathan: You're not my imag -- you're not my friend at all! I didn't make you up! You're very real.

Janet: Why do you deny that you psychotically invited me to drop in? I mean, imaginary friends are fun. After all, we have to do anything, almost anything that you tell us to. Go ahead, try it, try it. Give me an order.

Jonathan: I didn't imagine you. I'm not seeing things. I had an operation, and the doctors -- the doctors cut out the tumor --

Janet: Yes.

Jonathan: That was -- the surgery was successful, and the doctors cut out the tumor that made me do bad stuff!

Janet: That's right, they cut out that tumor! And what if they didn't get enough of it? What if they took too little tumor and too much brain, huh? Now, that would certainly explain everything, wouldn't it?

Kendall: Ryan's staying here for me. He needs something to occupy his time.

Zach: And Jonathan is not enough?

Kendall: Ryan sold Cambias to Miranda and Ethan. Before that, he ran the company by himself. He did a pretty good job. I mean, doesn't it make sense for Ethan to take advantage of Ryan being back? They could become gazillionaires together.

Zach: This isn't about business.

Kendall: Well, maybe Bianca hired Ryan.

Zach: This is about us, and about you carrying his baby.

Ryan: Zach doesn't impress me or scare me, Julia.

Julia: You sound like me when Noah was telling me what we were up against. And he was right. And now he's gone.

Ryan: I'll be careful. And I will stay safe, I promise.

Julia: It's so easy to say.

Ryan: Can I ask you something? When did you get to bed?

Julia: Which night?

Ryan: After the casino.

Julia: Well, I had a 20-minute power nap. That and a quart of coffee will get me through until 1:00 or 2:00 this afternoon. Another 20-minute nap and I'll be good until midnight.

Ryan: Hmm. So when do you actually plan on sleeping?

Julia: Well, it's a bad habit. I gave that up a long time ago.

Ryan: You realize that you do need to sleep, right, Julia?

Julia: There's someone after me, too, Ryan. If I nod off for too long, I'm gone.

Tad: So if you're willing to give it a try, I for one think we should see where this leads. I can't give you any guarantees, but --

Del: Well, I can. I guaran-damn-tee you're going to take your teeth home in your pocket if you don't stay away from my sister.

Di: Whoa, whoa -- Del, I don't need your help with this.

Del: I had to watch you suffer the last time this jerk treated you like dirt.

Di: Ok, it was different then.

Tad: Why don't you lighten up, Del?

Del: What did you tell her?

Tad: That's between your sister and --

Del: What did you tell Opal about me?

Tad: Opal?

Del: You warned Opal off me. Admit it! That's why she dropped off, she's out of sight, she won't return my calls.

Tad: Wait a minute. You and my mother are keeping time? That's disgusting. I don't know whether to laugh or vomit.

Del: She's a fine woman.

Tad: Yeah, with a fine bank account, right?

Del: Why don't you keep your mouth off of her?

Di: Whoa! Whoa, whoa -- Del, Del, Del, Tad didn't even know you were spending time with Opal. Leave him alone.

Del: Ow! Ah! Don't break it.

Tad: Why not? I'd be doing the literary community a big favor. You know what you're going to do, don't you, Del? You're going to leave your sister and me alone. You're going to leave Opal alone. And you're going to leave Opal's assets alone. Right now you're going to get out of here.

Del: You haven't heard the last from me.

Tad: Yeah, send me a post card when your wrist stops hurting. I didn't hurt him, not in any lasting sense.

Di: He just gets wrapped up in playing the role of protector.

Tad: You don't need a protector. Neither does Opal.

Anita: Hey, the attending signed off, so you're free to go just as soon as transport comes up.

Tad: Oh, we don't need an orderly. I'll make sure she doesn't trip and sue the place.

Anita: Hey, Tad, still no word from your dad?

Tad: No, but Dad must have a good reason for staying out of touch. I'll track him down and get the back story. That way you don't have to call up the Mounties.

Janet: I mean, how did you think you were going to get away with this?

Jonathan: I -- I haven't done anything.

Janet: They're pretty sure you did. I'd like to know where have you been for the last 24 hours? And I mean really the real flesh-and-blood you. I do not mean the woo-woo flights of whatever's left of your brain.

Jonathan: No. No, I'm not -- I'm not crazy. I'm not -- I'm not crazy.

Janet: Got a truck?

Jonathan: What? No. No, why would I -- why would I have a truck?

Janet: Exhibit A -- what does that look like? Well, that looks like you standing next to a -- oh, my! A truck! You going to deny that it's yours? Is something burning in here? Liar, liar, don't look now, but your pants are on fire!

Opal: Reward! Big bucks! Just let us --

[Opal coughs]

[Phone rings]

Joe: Wait, wait, wait. That's mine.

Opal: Yeah.

Joe: It's the hospital or Ruth wondering where the devil I am.

Brooke: Well --

Krystal: All right, all right. How about a little snack break, ok?

Opal: Yeah. Wet my whistle.

Joe: Wait a minute. Opal, don't, don't, don't.

Opal: Why?

Brooke: Well, because whoever drugged us left that.

Joe: We don't -- we don't know what's in there, that's why.

Adam: Go on, Krystal. Taste it.

Krystal: Excuse me?

Adam: No, sure. You're the big brave talker around here. Go on.

Krystal: Well, ok, if this stuff will knock me out again, so I don't have to listen to you, I'll be a happy woman.

Adam: Yeah, one way to find out.

Joe: Krystal, please, don't do it.

Krystal: Not bad.

Opal: Hey --

Krystal: No, no, no, wait your turn, scaredy-cat.

Brooke: So what is the common denominator? Why us?

Joe: That's right. What is it that ties us all together?

Adam: Babe is trying to snag J.R. again. She wants me out of the way.

Brooke: We're all here, too, Adam.

Adam: Well, Babe could have brought you over here to get back at Jamie.

Krystal: Oh, oh, oh, oh, have you lost your marbles? My daughter does not possess a criminal mind. Now, your son, however, just like his daddy, has a mean streak as wide as the Wabash.

J.R.: You actually think my father killed your mother?

Babe: Well, I know if somebody on the inside did this, it was your father.

J.R.: "Emergency -- Adam and Krystal are missing." We're both wrong.

Babe: We're so wrong. Neither one of them set this up.

J.R.: They were kidnapped.

Janet: What we have here is a failure to communicate.

Jonathan: I've only helped -- helped people since I've been back.

Janet: Helped can them, like hams!

Jonathan: No. I found that little Chandler boy, and I pulled that woman out -- out of the icy water, and --

Janet: That's right. Oh, right, of course you are! You're a saint, a man among men! Of course. Don't want your other imaginary friends to hear this, but I know where you got them stashed.

J.R.: I can understand if somebody went after my father for a bad business deal that went south or whatever. But why would they take Krystal, too?

Babe: Mom has half of Adam’s stock and power. J.R., If she gets hurt, if something happens to her --

J.R.: Nobody's going to get hurt.

[Doorbell rings]

J.R.: Just stay by the phone.

Tad: I brought by somebody I thought you'd want to see.

Di: Hi, J.R. I asked Tad to bring me over, so that I could thank you for coming to the hospital and checking on me. No, I mean, let me finish. It means a lot to me to know whether you -- whether you care, you know, if I live or die.

J.R.: Care about you? I don't give a -- as a matter of fact, I was hoping they'd say that you weren't going to live.

Tad: J.R., that's enough.

Babe: Tad, thank God you're here. You got to find my mama.

Brooke: Krystal and Adam were taken from their home.

Adam: Which is why Babe's the primary suspect.

Krystal: J.R.!

Brooke: And Opal and I and Joe were taken from the hospital.

Joe: You think it's someone that is connected with the hospital?

Brooke: I don't know. Does anybody come to mind?

Joe: You mean like someone who has a lot of hate in him and no conscience to speak of?

Krystal: And a talent for chemistry.

Opal: Who?

Brooke: Well, he has drugged half the town at one time or another.

Adam: Hayward, that dirtbag!

Opal: But Hayward doesn't know me well enough to hate me.

Brooke: Well, I don't think he has anything against me, either, so --

Joe: Yeah. What we need is to find someone who has a grudge against all of us.

Krystal: Is it possible to find somebody with a few less enemies than my hubby over there?

Joe: Nobody hates you, Brooke.

Opal: Well, except a certain superstar whose name is Erica Kane.

Brooke: You don't think Erica would do something like this, do you?

Opal: Well, not by herself, but -- oh, no, no, forget it. She loves me. It wouldn't be -- well, Billy Clyde Tuggle -- now, he's dead and buried, of course, blew off that bridge and -- oh, no. Petey. Petey!

Adam: You think that brat did this? What'd you do, dock his allowance?

Opal: Well, with me away, Petey is probably, as we speak, throwing a highly destructive keg party reducing Cortlandt Manor to rubble. I got to get out of here.

[Phone rings]

Adam: That's mine. That's mine. My people --


Adam: My people -- they'll locate my cell phone, and we'll be out of here by nightfall.

Krystal: Well, let's hope so. And if not, then it'll be thanks to my daughter and a certain new man in my life.

Adam: He doesn't have the energy to dial a phone.

Opal: Man, you did not waste any time, did you? Who are you cheating on old Adam with?

Adam: Your old husband.

Opal: Palmer? The father of my son?

Krystal: Palmer did propose to me right before this all happened.

[Opal screams]

Jonathan: I didn't stash anyone. You took that picture, but that's your truck. And you're making things up, because you have a mental problem.

Janet: Hey, now, look, there's no need to get nasty. It's not like I'm going to rat you out. I'm not a snitch.

Jonathan: There's nothing to rat -- I'm innocent.

Janet: You know, I really would hate to bother your family or you any longer, especially your poor brother and sister. After all, they've tried to do to help you, God knows they have their hands full.

Jonathan: Yeah. Yeah, Ryan -- Ryan starts a really big job today.

Janet: All right, now, don't try to change the subject, you mastermind. Come on. What's your next move? Come on. Don't make me get out the stun gun and the rubber hose. Confess. What are you going to do with the bodies?

Ryan: Tell me more.

Julia: Whenever I close my eyes, the whole thing replays in my head -- the shooting that I witnessed nine years ago, all the -- the blood and the screams and the Feds putting us in the Witness Protection Program in that safe nonlife that we had to live through. Through it all, he's -- he's there somewhere. And I can feel the gun in my hand, and I can see Garret's face. I can hear the blast from the gun, and I remember the -- the blood pooling up. I don't want to sleep. So I just -- I get out of the house, and I mix with people, and I just lose myself in the music and the noise.

Ryan: It helps if you're not alone.

Julia: I'm always alone, Ryan. I'm alone and lost and exhausted. But it's worth it if I can -- can just block out that one moment when I fired that gun.

Kendall: Whatever is going on with Cambias and Ryan and Ethan, it has nothing to do with us. Just try to focus on how wonderful your life is and all the great things that you have going for you.

Zach: You.

Kendall: Us, Zach. You and me and everything that we feel for each other. We are finally together and -- and we're in love, and no one or nothing should be allowed to get in our way.

Zach: Nothing can.

Kendall: I saw Ryan last night, and he agreed to stop with the whole head-butting between you guys, and I really think that he will.

Zach: Ryan came to see you?

Kendall: No, I went to his place.

Zach: You went to the Pine Cone?

Kendall: No, his -- his old apartment, the one that he shared with Greenlee.

Zach: And this happened last night?

Kendall: Yeah, well, it's his first night being back there without Greenlee, and I know it's hard for him. I felt really bad for him.

[Phone rings]

Kendall: Zach?


Zach: Hello? No, I know, I just didn't expect -- Yeah. Nothing for you to worry about. I will. Damn him.

Ryan: You know, my dad is responsible for getting into my head and keeping me awake for years, and now Greenlee does that. So if you ever need late-night company, you can give me a call.

[Knock on door]

Julia: Thanks.

Ryan: Oh, thank you.

Woman: You're welcome. And Paul Borden's on line 2.

Ryan: Oh, great. Thanks. I got to take this.

Julia: That's -- I'll be fine. Thank you. Please be careful.

Ryan: I will.

Ryan: Paul. Hi. It's Ryan, yes, I just wanted to try and get you for a couple of minutes before the meeting. I have a couple offbeat ideas I'd like to run by you.

Kendall: What was that?

Zach: Nothing. I got to go.

Kendall: Wait, can you just stay a little longer, please?

Zach: Don't worry. I'm not going to slaughter Ryan for moving in on Cambias.

Kendall: What are you going to do to him?

Zach: Call me if you need me.

Babe: We flew back this morning. No one saw them leave, they didn't hear anything, and there weren't even any bags packed. All we got is this telegram and their shoes that were outside by the door. You've got to find them.

J.R.: Send a flunky to the bars and the trailer park while you look for my father.

Babe: When did you become such a jerk again, J.R.?

J.R.: Can we just remember who's more important here?

Babe: Oh, by that, you mean who's worth more.

J.R.: Yeah, that's exactly what I mean, as a matter of fact.

Babe: These are people we're talking about, J.R., not property. God, what is wrong with me? Why would I actually sign on for more ugliness with you and agree to marry you?

Tad: Marry?

J.R.: Don't worry. It's not going to happen.

Tad: Well, about Adam and Krystal -- they could've gone off together, maybe back to Crow Hollow.

Babe: No, Mama wouldn't go anywhere without telling me, and not after everything that happened in Crow Hollow, especially not with me already gone.

J.R.: She certainly wouldn't have kicked off an $800 pair of shoes and run outside barefoot.

Babe: Neither would Adam.

Tad: Which leaves us with the telegram. I'll do what I can, see if I can find out who really sent it. I don't know who uses telegrams anymore.

Palmer: Oh, good morning, everybody. Would you please tell your mother that I'm here?

Babe: Mama --

Tad: Both Krystal and Adam are missing.

Palmer: Really? Opal dropped out of sight yesterday. Hmm. Maybe she ran off with all the rest of them.

Opal: You!

Adam: No, hold her!

Opal: You little -- oh, you witch, you!

Joe: It's ok, it's ok. Whoa, whoa!

Opal: Oh! You!

Joe: What?

Opal: You -- you drained this old buzzard dry as you could, and now you're going after my ex?

Krystal: Palmer pursued me!

Opal: Oh, yeah, right. Well, I just want you to know one thing, missy. His fortune is branded with Petey’s name, ok?

Adam: Look, look, I'll gladly step aside for Palmer. Once I've unloaded you, I'll be free to recapture Brooke.

Brooke: Oh, you and what army?

Joe: Oh, come on. Can we do something productive, ladies and gentlemen?

Brooke: Adam, how many times do I have to tell you, I don't want you, so please stop trying to use me to make your wife jealous.

Krystal: Oh, as if that's even possible. Opal, you want Adam?

Opal: Lord, no!

Brooke: Hmm.


Joe: Wait, wait. What was that?

Opal: A heartfelt rejection.

Joe: No, no, no. It's outside. I heard something.

Brooke: Someone?

Joe: Yeah, yes.

Brooke: What?

Joe: Right, right.

[Women shout]

Janet: Poor sardines, you're getting restless. I'm sorry, I can't let you out of your big tin can just yet. You're helping me fry a bigger fish. J.R. and Babe can't get away with making Amanda miserable the way they have. They need to be taught a lesson. I'm just not doing this for my daughter. Oh, I'm doing this for mothers and daughters everywhere.

[As she's heading out, Kendall opens her condo's door and finds Julia standing there.]

[Standing in his office, Ryan looks up from his paperwork and sees Zach come through the door.]

Jonathan: They took it all, right? When I had the surgery, the -- the doctors cut out all the bad stuff?

Erin: Of course they did. It's all gone. We already told you that.

Jonathan: No, no, I mean, is there a chance that there -- there could be something left, a little bit of --

Erin: No, Jonathan, Jonathan -- they got it all, ok? I mean, we saw scans and X-rays, and the tumor is gone. All of it, ok? Why? What happened?

Jonathan: Nothing, I just -- nothing, nothing. I started to think about what-ifs and, you know, uh -- they got it all, right?

Erin: Yeah.

Jonathan: It's gone? It's gone?

Erin: Of course they did.

Jonathan: Ok. Ok. Ok, I'm -- I'm fine. I'm ok.

Erin: Ok.

Jonathan: Let me -- let me take this upstairs for you.

Erin: All right. Thanks.

Tad: Yeah, I love you, too. Well, Mom says when Dad didn't come back last night from the hospital, she figured it was just another late night. And then there was no sign of him this morning. She assumed that he'd slept on the sofa in his office.

[Phone rings]

Tad: It's Jamie. Hey, kiddo. Listen, I got a question for you. I -- yeah. Yeah, of course I'm sure. Yeah, as a matter of fact, there is. I want you to get over to the Chandlers' ASAP. It means now, James. It's important. Jamie's looking for Brooke.

Palmer: Now Brooke's among the missing?

J.R.: This is surreal.

Babe: Everyone's dropping off the face of the earth. What are we supposed to do?

Tad: Find them.

[Phone rings]

Brooke: That's Jamie calling. He'll find us.

Opal: Yeah, when? When half of us have been devoured to support the lives of the others?

Krystal: Would you chill! You're way too stringy and gamey to eat.

Opal: You are begging for it!

Adam: Go for her throat. With those fingernails –

[While everyone inside the truck argues, Janet inserts a hose through an opening in the side and opens the valve of the tank of laughing gas.]

Janet: I've been working in Pine Valley

Krystal: Oh, shut up, Adam, or I'm going to make your life even --

Janet: Just to get you back

Joe: Please, you're just wasting energy.

Brooke: Oh, we all are.

Janet: I've been plottin' and a-plannin' to show you what you lack. You're a bunch of meanie beanies. You should be nice and kind. Now you're gonna suck some fun gas in your sockie feet

Julia (to Kendall): You love Zach, let Ryan go.

Kendall: And if I don't?

Julia: You'll deal with me.

Brooke: Does anybody smell that?

Adam: It's some kind of gas.

Krystal: Of all the ways that I expected to go, this wasn't it.
