Jamie: I don't know what I thought we'd find here, but I can't believe Amanda would be sneaking around for this.

[By the time Jamie and Aidan search Janet's secret room, everything has been cleared out except a blob of oatmeal on the table.]

Jamie: What do you got?

Aidan: Ugh. It smells like oatmeal.

[Knock on door]

Janet: Brr! Oh, please tell me my nose isn't all red. Hi. Oh! Someone hire a clown?

Amanda: Oh, my God, Mom, what are you doing here? Are you kidding me?

Janet: Don't even get me started. Well, there I was, all comfy cozy, cup of tea in hand, thinking cap screwed on tight, and all of a sudden I'm running around like a wild banshee trying to clear out without a trace. Ugh! Gosh darn it if my dioramas didn't get all mussed up in the hubbub.

Amanda: Mom, I had you locked up in that warehouse.

Janet: There's something you don't hear every day.

Amanda: No, there's no way you could've gotten out.

Janet: I took a secret passageway -- something else you don't hear every day!

Amanda: Oh, my God. Please tell me you haven't done something I'm going to regret.

Janet: I was run out by intruders. Didn't I warn you something like this was going to happen?

Amanda: No, Mom, ok, start from the beginning. Work with me.

Janet: It's Jamie, the dirty bird, sweetie. He came back to the warehouse. He came back, because he doesn't believe you, he doesn't love you. He betrayed you, Amanda, just like Mommy told you he would. Oh, honey. I'm so sorry! It is such a burden to be right all the time.

Erica: This isn't right. I don't belong here. Do I?

Jonathan: I don't know. Did -- did you commit a crime?

Erica: I was at the casino. We were doing a -- a rehearsal of my show. Michael Cambias was there. And he was coming at me and, I mean, I just -- I just grabbed whatever I could get into my hands to keep him away from me, and I -- and I stabbed him. I think I killed him. Oh, no, that doesn't make any sense. No, this -- this must be a dream, a bad dream.

Jonathan: This place is -- it's very real, Erica.

Erica: Michael Cambias died years ago. Oh, God. Who did I stick that knife into?

Kendall: My mother went insane, Ryan. She stabbed him in the chest. She stabbed him. I can still see his face when the knife went in.

Ryan: Don't do this to yourself, all right?

Kendall: No, don't touch me, don't touch me and pretend like you care about me!

Ryan: I do care about you, Kendall.

Kendall: Oh, really, ok, and to hell with Zach? You hate him as much as my mother does, Ryan. I don't understand how this can happen, how she can just kill the one and only thing that makes me happy and that I love!

Ryan: She didn't kill anything, ok? He's not dead.

Kendall: Oh, ok, but you wish he was. Well, you know what, Ryan, if you stick around long enough, maybe you'll get your wish.

Doctor: He's losing volume. There's a bleeder in here somewhere. How's his IV access?

Second Doctor: Got a 16 in each arm. I could try for a 14.

First Doctor: BP's 90/50 and dropping.

Second doctor: He's getting tachy.

First doctor: Get me six units of O-positive, STAT! Damn it, this guy's bleeding to death.

Di: Marty Stern. The last time I saw you --

Marty: I was about 20 pounds heavier and about a hundred miles from sober.

Di: Huh. Well, don't tell me you're on the straight and narrow now.

Marty: Well, let's just say that the road isn't quite as wide as it used to be.

Di: Ok.

Marty: You're looking fine as ever, Di. You still dancing?

Di: Uh-uh. Gave that up a few years ago.

Marty: Don't tell me you're on the straight and narrow now.

Di: No. Actually, Zach Slater offered me a job here.

Marty: Well, if you've come for an interview, you're going to be waiting a while. You saw what happened with Erica Kane?

Di: I know, I know. I hope Zach’s ok.

Marty: Oh, that guy's got nine lives.

Di: Hmm.

Marty: Has at least three left. Of course, there's no telling when he's going to be back to work.

Di: Oh, that's too bad. I could look forward to seeing more of you.

Marty: I'm Zach’s right-hand guy. I've done some hiring for him in the past. If you say he's already offered you the job, who am I to stand in your way?

Di: No, Marty, come on, don't mess with me. I really need to work.

Marty: Who's messing? Consider yourself employed.

Di: You mean it? Oh, my God, I owe you bigtime!

Marty: Maybe you could find some way to pay me back.

Di: Yeah, maybe.

Marty: Hey, you remember Cleo?

Di: Yeah.

Marty: Yeah? She ended up taking Rico for a real ride one night.

Di: Yeah?

Marty: Uh-huh.

Di: Oh, God.

[Kendall weeps as she fingers her bloodied dress.]

Ryan: I do not want Zach to die.

Kendall: You don't lie to me! Don't lie to me because you feel sorry for me. If Zach dies, it's one less person to attack your freaky brother. Or one less person to get in your face and tell you what a walking disaster you are, or maybe one less person to get in the way of you and your child. I mean, your life would just be wonderful if the love of my life just dropped dead right now!

Ryan: Ok, you're so completely off base. I want you to sit down, I'm going to see if I can get you some more --

Kendall: No, no! Are you in this with my mother? Do you guys have a little pact there? She grants your wish and kills Zach, and you grant her wish and come riding to my rescue, is that it? Because it's very convenient that you just happened to be here when we came in.

Ryan: Ok, all right, stop, ok? I have no idea why Erica did what she did. I don't know what's going on with her, but I can guarantee you it's got nothing to do with her pushing you and me together, ok? Kendall, just -- you need support right now. That's what I'm trying to do. I'm just trying to give you support. I'm trying to make this as easy for you as I can, ok? Anything you need, anything Zach needs, I'm here.

Kendall: Ok, well, there is one thing I need.

Ryan: Ok, great. Name it.

Kendall: Why did you break into Zach’s office? What were you looking for?

Janet: Men. They are such lying, stupid -- ew -- stinky sons of -- can we just move this sports equipment?

Amanda: Mom, this is Jamie’s apartment. You can't rearrange his stuff to stash yours. He'll find out in two seconds.

Janet: Oh, yeah, right, a junior G-man with the two of us. Oh, he should just try it. He'd be caught out in a minute. Aha! Oh, I got it. Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. Oh -- Joan and Melissa Rivers, Wynona and -- and what's-her-name Judd! Oh, God! Ready? Amanda and Janet Dillon! Oh, we'd teach them such a lesson! We'd be immortal! Are we going somewhere?

Amanda: I'm taking you to the hospital. Mom, you need a mega dose of meds and round-the-clock care by someone who can lock you up and keep you locked up. I can't do this anymore.

Janet: Amanda, just stop it right now. Mommy is not crazy!

Jamie: This is crazy. What would Amanda be doing here?

Jamie: Hey, I got something.

Aidan: A back door.

Jamie: Yeah, ok, why would she need a back door when I saw her coming out of there when I caught her?

Aidan: I think this place looks like a safe house, locked from the outside with a secondary entrance in here. What's that?

Jamie: I'm not sure. Oh, wow.

Aidan: Spirit gum.

Jamie: The stuff they use to put on fake hair?

Aidan: Yeah, mustaches, beards, you got it. Hang on. You ever see Amanda playing with dolls?

Jamie: I take back what I said. This place is getting more interesting by the minute.

Aidan: I'd like to take a closer look. We might be on to something yet.

Jonathan: You want to read my book? It's very inspir -- inspirational. It helps you forget that you're in jail. I wish I knew how to help you the way that you helped me. You remember? The first day that I -- that I came back to Pine Valley? I asked you for a new beginning, and you -- you were so kind to me.

Erica: My mind is like mush. I think back to the casino, and I really can't tell what was real from what I imagined. Was I hallucinating? Am I losing my mind?

Jonathan: No, I've been feeling the same way lately. Not knowing what -- what's real or imaginary? Doing something bad that I never meant to do, or if you even did it at all! Erica? Do you think you have a brain tumor?

Erica: Oh, my God.

Jonathan: Oh, no. No, no. Erica, I apologize. I -- I didn't mean to make you feel bad. Uh-uh, you're going to be fine. I know it. You have so many friends and family. They all love you so much. And you have fans. You -- you must have, like, 10 million fans. Everyone's going to come together and help you figure this out. You'll be fine, I know it.

Jack: Damn right she'll be fine.

Erica: Jack. Jack! Oh, I'm so glad you're here! Jack, I've really been terrified.

Jack: Sweetheart, everything's going to be fine. I'm going to get you out of here.

Erica: Jack, I don't even know why I'm in here. Who did I hurt, Jack? What did I do?

Doctor: BP's 80 over palp.

Second Doctor: Are we getting bilateral breath sounds?

Alexander: You should know better than to keep me waiting.

Zach: My God in heaven.

Alexander: God is nowhere to be seen. What does that tell you?

Zach: Let me out of here.

Alexander: I couldn't if I wanted to, and I don't want to.

Zach: You're in my head. I'll make you disappear.

Alexander: Is that any way to treat your father after so many years apart?

Zach: You're dead!

Alexander: You are dying now, my boy. This time, it's the real thing.

Zach: I've always hated you.

Alexander: Be that as it may, should you decide to open your eyes again, I'll still be here, and so will you. You have been reunited with your beloved family -- forever.

Michael: Long time, no see, Alex. Huh, or do you still prefer "Zach"? "Zach." Pretty miserable way to go, huh, Zach? Not as messy a crime scene as mine, but a crime scene nonetheless. I tell you, those Kane women, they really know how to grab a headline, don't they? Not to mention a weapon.

Zach: Somebody get me out of here!


Michael: A-plus on the karmic payback, bro. You were supposed to come to Pine Valley to avenge my death, and you wound up sleeping with the enemy, just like me. You had this coming to you, big brother.

Alexander: Smell that, son? It's the stench of one more body being thrown into the flames -- yours. Welcome to hell.

Erica: Jack, please just tell me that this is a nightmare, and I'm going to wake up. I couldn't possibly have stabbed Zach.

Jack: But you did. The question is, why?

Erica: I didn't even see Zach. I was protecting myself from Michael Cambias. Michael Cambias was there. At least I thought so. And he was taunting me, he was -- he was holding Kendall in his arms. Oh, God. It was Zach, wasn't it? I am losing my mind.

Jack: Sweetheart, listen to me. I have to ask you this. Had you been drinking? Had you taken any pills?

Erica: No. I didn't have one drop of liquor. I didn't even have an aspirin. Don't tell me that you're buying into this ridiculous tabloid report.

Jack: I'm not buying into anything, but I do know that anyone, anyone, sweetheart, can have a slip.

Erica: I know exactly how fragile recovery is, and I wasn't using anything. I swear. I swear on everything that I hold dear -- on our children, on our love, everything -- I swear I did not have a drop of alcohol, I did not take one pill. Please, say you believe me.

Jack: Of course I believe you.

Erica: Thank you.

Jack: But it just doesn't make any sense. I mean, why would you hallucinate Michael Cambias?

Erica: There's obviously something very wrong with me.

Jack: There's an answer to all this. And we will figure it out, I promise you.

Zach: Why can't I move?

Alexander: Because there's nowhere for you to go. You are where you were always meant to be -- with your family, your blood, under your father's control.

Zach: Not a chance.

Michael: Yeah, it's pretty disgusting, isn't it? That stain never comes out.

Zach: You get the hell away from me, both of you. You have no power over me. You never did.

Alexander: I sent that girl away. I denied you your son. Next, I'll take Kendall.

Zach: I will marry Kendall, and I will be happy.

Michael: It's time for you to kiss your precious Kendall bye-bye. She's gone. You lost her, just like I did. Now, I know this may seem like a big blow to you, but once you've taken some time to think about this, you'll realize that you were just getting your little brother's sloppy seconds.

Zach: Do not mention her name, you twisted rapist punk!

Michael: Daddy, Daddy, you're not going to let him talk to me like that, are you?

Alexander: You won't marry Kendall, Zach. You won't be happy with her, because I won't let you.

Kendall: Trying to think of some lie to cover up the truth? Well, you know what? It's too late, Ryan. Zach knows. He recorded the whole thing, it's on cameras, he has a disc of it.

Ryan: He does, does he? Well, good for him.

Kendall: You broke into his office, Ryan. You used Ethan and Simone as a decoy. So you must have been looking for something pretty damn good.

Ryan: I was going on a hunch. It's nothing.

Kendall: Isn't it funny how "nothing" can drive a person to jail time, a broken jaw at the very least?

Ryan: A broken jaw from who, from Zach? Believe me, he'd break his fist first. Kendall, look, word on the street is Zach may be a threat to me.

Kendall: Ryan, he's not a threat to you.

Ryan: Well, he could've been, Kendall, and I was just checking it out. That's all I was doing, ok? And I haven't found anything concrete, I haven't, nothing -- not yet. Anyway, if I do, if I find any proof at all, I'll tell you first, ok?

Kendall: You know what, I'm sitting here right now not even knowing if he's going to wake up tomorrow, ok, and just because you hate Zach is no reason for you to not tell me what you know.

Ryan: I told you, I don't know anything yet.

Kendall: You broke into his office, Ryan. You freaked out when I told you that I was going to marry him again. You told me that I had to know the truth, but you won't tell me what that truth is. Now, you'd better have a damn good reason for what you're doing, or I swear to God I will walk away from you and never come back -- and I will never even speak to you again, and that includes the day I give birth to your son. Tell me right now what you know.

Janet: Amanda, you can't. You cannot lock me into a hospital.

Amanda: Mother, that was before --

Janet: You promised that you would never do that. You gave a solemn oath. You know what they'll do to me in there, and I can't live like that. I would rather die. What, you're going to kill your own mother now?

Amanda: Mom, I don't know what else to do, ok? You are hurting people, and you don't want to stop.

Janet: I am doing the very best I can to help you.

Amanda: Where is Dad? He has to take care of this! I can't!

Janet: I know he does. He is brilliant. He has such a genius of a mind. But we cannot be selfish about that. We have to be able to share him with the world, and right now he is. He's away on a top-secret --

Amanda: Secret mission, I know, Mom, but people in his own family should be able to --

[Key turns in lock]

Amanda: Oh, no, it's Jamie.

Marty: This place just got a whole lot more exciting now that you're a part of the team.

Di: Yeah? You have just hired yourself one hell of a hostess, mister. Marty, I got to run. But, hey, thank you, really, for the opportunity. It's going to be great working for you.

Marty: I'm looking forward to it.

Di: I did it; he gave me the job

Tad: Yeah, I'm not surprised. "Looking forward to it."

Di: Oh --

Tad: Not the only thing he wanted to give you. How many hands does that guy have?

Di: Tad, Tad, come on, his name is Marty. He's an old acquaintance. And listen, he is Zach’s second in command. If he's the guy we're looking for, getting information just got a whole lot easier.

Tad: No, forget it, forget it. It's a terrible idea. I don't want you doing it.

Di: You told Ryan I was the perfect person to come here and infiltrate the casino.

Tad: Don't argue with me, ok? There's getting information and then there's getting in over your head. And I've already had my fair share of pulling people out of quicksand lately, thank you very much. Come on.

Di: Oh, you know what? You're forgetting something again. I'm not Dixie.

Erica: Michael Cambias was definitely there -- or so I thought -- but as clear as I'm looking at you. And when I saw him, I just -- I got so angry. I just had this uncontrollable rage. And I truly believed that he was back, and I knew what I was doing -- only I didn't.

Jonathan: Like Greenlee.

Jack: Stay out of this, Lavery.

Jonathan: Sorry. I just wanted to help.

Jack: You want to help? Just shut up!

Erica: No, Jack. What about Greenlee?

Jonathan: Well, when -- when I was bad before, I gave her -- I gave her my medication. Remember? And -- and she said some really mean things, remember? She would get really angry, and she would see things that -- that weren't there. Like the -- like the circus on top of the Fusion rooftop. She did some really scary things. I mean, did somebody give you my old medicine, Erica? I mean, is that why you stabbed Zach?

Zach: You have no power over me, old man. I will be with Kendall, and there's nothing you can do to stop me.

Alexander: You've proven yourself to be a true Cambias. The blood streaming through your veins? Mine. All mine.

Michael: Past tense, Father. Look at that gash. The only blood he has running through him now is that of a helpful donor.

Alexander: Silence, Michael. You tried to escape your heritage. You ran away, Alex, you changed your name. But the genetics, the birthright -- those are inescapable. You're still a Cambias. You sabotaged the only hope you had for happiness with Kendall. Secrets make doomed marriages, my boy.

Michael: So does death.

Alexander: Shut up, Michael.

Zach: Everything I've done was to protect Kendall.

Alexander: Keep telling yourself that. Perhaps it'll offer some comfort through eternity. I say no Kendall, no marriage. My word is final.

Kendall: I can't stand this stalling, Ryan, I can't.

Ryan: Wait a minute, Kendall, would you just please come with me? I want you to relax.

Kendall: No, no, no, there are too many unanswered questions right now, ok -- like why did this happen, and what is going on with my mother and did Zach even make it out of surgery.

Ryan: Well, yes, he did, ok? Now just come with me, sit down.

Kendall: No, Ryan, no, there is one question -- there is one question that you can answer for me. Please just tell me what you think Zach is hiding, Ryan. I deserve to know.

Ryan: This is not about Zach, ok? This is about you and our son, Kendall, and I can't let him hurt you and get away with it. I mean, you know me better than to think that I would just back off.

Kendall: Go to hell, and take your dirt on Zach with you.

Ryan: Hey. Hey, so you -- you heard about Zach?

Ethan: Any news on his condition?

Ryan: No. Not yet. And Kendall’s wrong, by the way, about me wanting to mess with her happiness, and she's also wrong about me wanting Zach to die, because if he did cause the blackout, I want the son of a bitch alive so he can pay.

Ethan: Does Kendall know? About the blackout?

Ryan: No, I haven't said anything. I want to be able to back it up first.

Ethan: Well, you never know. May not have to say anything at all. I think my father might die, if for no other reason than to cheat me out of this war he started. He's got to make sure I can't win.

Simone: Kendall, honey? You know, Zach could be in surgery for a while. Why don't you let me take you home, huh? I can make you something to eat. I'm sure the baby's hungry. And you look like you need to lie down before you fall down.

Kendall: Do you hate him, Simone?

Simone: Zach? No. No. Let's just keep that between us girls, ok? In a twisted way, Ethan’s much happier knowing that I hate his daddy as much as he does.

Kendall: I can't make sense of any of this.

Simone: I know. It's a lot to deal with. Of course, there is still a chance that he didn't do it. But if he did, honey I don't blame Zach for causing that blackout, for screwing up the whole Greenlee surrogacy thing. I don't. Because if you really think about it, it's actually romantic -- in a Zach Slater kind of way. It's like I told Ryan and Ethan. I mean, say Zach was the one that caused the blackout, ok, say that he's the one that made Greenlee lose her eggies and Ryan's fishies say bye-bye. He did it out of love for you. He did it to protect you, Kendall. My God, that's just undeniably sweet. Are you sure you don't want me to take you home? You really look like you want this night to be over.

Kendall: Ryan hates Zach.

Simone: And Zach hates Ryan, and Ethan hates Zach, Zach hates Ethan, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Like it or not, we're smack dab in the middle of a testosterone fest. You know what they say about boys and their egos.

Ryan: You're not defined by your father, Ethan. Take it from me, I found that out the hard way. I'm still finding it out, ok? The best thing that you can do is to walk away from Zach. Otherwise, this war that you have with him is going to eat you alive.

Ethan: Maybe he'll flat-line it and save us all the trouble, eh?

Ryan: You think his death will set you free? It doesn't work that way. You are the only one that can end this, all on your own. Zach has the power until you say he doesn't.

Alexander: Your entire life is a catastrophe. You lied to the woman you love. Your relationship is hanging by a thread. You failed with her and with your son.

Michael: You didn't do much for me, either.

Alexander: Kendall will disappear, but Ethan won't. He will always be there, a haunting reminder of the mess you've made of your life.

Michael: Yeah, you've almost outdone me.

Ryan: I'll second that.

Alexander: Ah, there is he is, my true heir, the son I've always wanted. The man who rightfully deserved my fortune. Until you ruined that.

Michael: Yeah, like I really knew I was going to get little Binks pregnant.

Ryan: You're dead, Zach. You're dead, and I feel like I've won the lottery, because you're out of our lives. You're out of mine, Kendall's, and our son's. So rest in peace -- or not.

Di: You know, I've been on my own since I was a kid, Tad. I've been a crime boss' girlfriend, I went to prison, I was a con artist not-so-extraordinaire.

Tad: Why don't you just scream it a little louder? You made your point. You're not Dixie, you can take care of yourself.

Di: Right, and I've been doing it my whole life.

Tad: I'm glad to hear it. I mean it, because this could very easily get dangerous.

Di: What, Tad, working here, just looking for a little dirt on Zach?

Tad: Yeah. A little dirt on Zach Slater, a very serious individual. Not to mention giving the brush-off to his right-hand man, the human octopus that would love nothing more than to keep his grubby little digits all over you.

Di: Ok. Ok. You want to protect me. I appreciate that. You want to keep me safe. But I can handle this. You know, Marty tried back in the day. And he didn't get anywhere, not then, not now.

Tad: I'm sure you're past mastering at giving old Marty the brush-off. I just don't like --

Di: Seeing me with him?

Tad: Was trying not to say it.

Di: That's the sweetest thing I've ever heard you not say. Listen -- I mean, Marty -- Marty is a computer whiz, Tad. And if anybody could hack into a power system, he's our guy.

Tad: Ok, terrific. But even if he is the connection between Zach and that blackout, you're taking a hell of a risk, whether you want to admit it or not, ok, and I can't be here, I can't be here to look over your shoulder.

Di: Why? What came up?

Tad: Let's just say we came here to uncover one secret, and I may have just tripped over another.

Erica: Derek, I think someone may have drugged me.

Jonathan: Like when I drugged Greenlee.

Jack: Look, we need to get Erica to the hospital, we need to get a tox screen done, and we need to do it now.

Derek: Hold up, people. Zach Slater was stabbed tonight. A roomful of witnesses saw it. You just expect me to open up this cell?

Jack: Yes, Derek, that's exactly what I expect you to do. Look, somebody slipped Erica a drug. It's still in her system. We need to get her to the hospital, get that tox screen done, find out what that drug is before my wife has a cardiac arrest!

Erica: Oh, Derek, please? I'm terrified.

Derek: I can get someone in here tomorrow --

Jack: No, we're going to do this now, Derek. Look, wait, if you're afraid she's going to make a run for it, handcuff her to me, handcuff her to you -- do whatever you have to do -- but get my wife to the hospital before it's too late!

Aidan: Looky, looky, looky what we have here. Now, whose hair is this?

Amanda: Look, you're totally weirding me out, Jamie. If you have something to say, just say it already.

Jamie: Found this tonight.

Amanda: You into dolls? Who knew.

Jamie: I found this in the warehouse I followed you to.

Amanda: You went back there?

Jamie: Yeah, to find out why you went there.

Amanda: You told me you had to fill in for someone at the hospital tonight. You lied to me!

Jamie: Well, you've been lying to me. Haven't you, Amanda?

Amanda: Oh, my God. You seriously think I have something to hide? I told you why I went to that warehouse. Erica is looking for a space to rent for "New Beginnings." Why would I lie about that?

Jamie: That's weird, that's what I want to know.

Amanda: I trusted you, Jamie. I thought you trusted me. I fell so hard for you, head over heels in love for real. How could you mess with me like this?

Jamie: I'm not playing you, and I'm not against you. But I also don't buy your story about the warehouse. I think you're hiding something. And we're not going anywhere until I find out what it is.

Simone: Are you ok? My God, do we know anything?

Nurse: I'm sorry, we have no information at this point.

[Kendall remembers recent conversations.]

Zach’s voice: I don't want to change who you are. I love who you are. I love who you've been and -- and I love who you're going to be.

Ryan's voice: He's a fraud. He's a liar.

Zach: Be my wife. Marry me. For real this time.

Ryan: You can't.

Kendall: Who the hell says I can't?

Ryan: You can't marry Zach until you know --

Kendall: What? Until I know what, Ryan? What don't I know?

Anita: Kendall? Kendall? Zach’s out of surgery.

Simone: Oh, thank God.

Kendall: He's alive?

Anita: I can take you to him.

Simone: Oh, honey, go, go. Go see your man.

Jamie: You tell me your hands are clean, we go right back to being friends. But if you had any part in this, I'm not going to turn on you. I'll get you the help you need.

Amanda: And now you think I need help?

Jamie: Amanda, whoever did this needs serious medical attention.

Amanda: You mean they're crazy.

Jamie: If you're behind this, we have a serious problem. Maybe it was triggered by the skull fracture from the accident. Maybe you really don't know what you're doing during these blackouts you say you're having.

Amanda: Oh, so now you think I lied about the blackouts, too? Last I heard, Jonathan Lavery was locked up for all the bad things that happened. Why am I in the hot seat? I'm innocent!

Jamie: If you're so innocent, tell me what the deal is with this warehouse, that doll. Admit to what you know, because we're going to find out either way.

Amanda: You think I'd ever trust you again?

[Phone rings]

Jamie: I got to get this. Yeah?

[As Jamie answers the phone, Janet clobbers him over the head with a metal bat.]

Janet: Now, you, Jamie Martin, are the one in need of serious medical attention. You, you, you!

Amanda: Oh, my God, he's out cold. Mom -- what are you looking for?

Janet: Rope. You know where Mr. "Oh, I love you, Amanda, except when I don't" keeps it?

Amanda: What do you need rope for?

Janet: Honey, this is kind of a tall building, right, and he's sort of a hunky guy, right, so you're going to help me.

Amanda: No, you are not touching him!

Janet: Honey, this pathetic excuse of fiancé has hurt my sweet angel. And now we're going to teach him a lesson.

Amanda: No, Mom, no more lessons! Look, I don't care what I have to do, it all stops now! Jamie! Come on, please, wake up! Jamie! Oh, God, Mom, how could you –

[When she turns around and sees that her mom is gone, Amanda grabs her coat and purse and dashes out after her.]

Derek: Will you turn around, please, Erica?

Jack: Thank you, Derek. You're doing the right thing here. Listen, you get her into a squad car, I'll call the hospital and make sure there's somebody standing by, all right? Guard.

Tad: I may be onto something that scared me half to death. It concerns Erica's connection to Greg Madden.

Di: That's already figured out. She's already figured out her connection with Madden.

Tad: Maybe, maybe not, at least not all of it.

Di: I mean, can I help you?

Tad: No. This isn't a theory I want to start sharing with anybody, at least till I'm positive.

Di: Ok.

Tad: Mainly because I'm praying that I'm wrong.

Di: It's that bad?

Tad: Bad? If I'm right, this thing's going to blow a whole lot of lives straight to hell.

Alexander: Give me your hand. Come with us. You have no choice.

Kendall's voice: Zach? Zach?

Alexander: This is your destiny. You're a Cambias. Always have been, always will be.

Kendall's voice: Please, Zach, come back.

[Using Kendall as a lifeline, Zach grabs her hand and regains consciousness, while Kendall recalls Simone’s words.]

Simone’s voice: But if he did, honey, I don't blame Zach for causing that blackout, for screwing up the whole Greenlee surrogacy thing. I don't. Because if you really think about it, it's actually romantic -- in a Zach Slater kind of way.

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

Amanda (to Janet): Tell me where you are, and I'll come get you.

Janet (in the Chandler secret tunnel): I can't do that, sweetheart. I'm right in the middle of something.

Kendall (to Erica): Are you completely insensitive or totally insane?

Greg (to Tad): Tell me what you're trying to wheedle out of my son.

J.R. (to Babe): If you don't sign that prenup, we are totally over.
