You're invited to be a guest at the Mardi Gras Ball and support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund at the same time. When you call 1-800-RED-CROSS and contribute by February 12, you will receive a callback message from me and ensure that the American Red Cross will be there to help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year with food, clothing, counseling, and more. Call now. Together, we can save a life.

[Music plays]

Palmer: The American Red Cross continues to respond to thousands of disasters across the country each year. Please help. Donate now to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to assist victims of natural disasters, including the continuing relief efforts for Katrina, Wilma, and all of last year's hurricanes. Call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or you can donate at Please help bring back the spirit of Mardi Gras.

Woman: Oh, Palmer, that was lovely.

Opal: Not bad at all.

[Hiding behind a mask, Dixie watches her son from a safe distance.]

Babe: J.R. Sorry, you lost your place in line.

J.R.: That's all right. I'll let Delbert have my seconds. I won't be making any more trips to the buffet.

Del: Well, that's too bad. You're really missing out.

Babe: Then I guess you won't mind if I add a few more things to the menu.

J.R.: I'd watch out. Her cooking sucks.

Josh: Someone else tried to sell this story. Look what happened to her.

Jamie: What's the matter, Josh? Afraid Erica's finally going to believe you're the one who drugged her?

Erica: Look, I have a ball to run

Greg: Erica, please, you have to listen to us.

Josh: Erica, this is your evening. You don't need to hear any of this. I think we should get of here.

Jamie: You're not going anywhere.

Josh: I'm not going to let you ruin this night for Erica with your ridiculous talk.

Greg: Erica, Amanda Dillon told the truth about the drugging.

Erica: Don't walk into my party and throw around accusations. I've had enough of you. And why would I believe a word out of your mouth anyway?

Greg: Because your loyal assistant has been out to get you since the first day you hired him.

Jack: Get your hands off my daughter. Get them off!

Lily: Dad, stop! His hands weren't on me, just his lips.

Jonathan: Mr. Montgomery, I can --

Jack: Shut up! Don't you dare touch her again. Don't you dare come near her again.

Lily: Dad, stop it, Dad, you're scaring him!

Jack: If you do, this is only the beginning of what you're going to get from me, do you understand me? Do you understand me?

Ryan: Are you ok? Come on, go ahead, go ahead.

Ryan: What did Zach tell you? All right, why don't you have a seat? I'll get a glass of water, ok? Here you go. Here you go. Whatever he told you, Kendall, he did it. He did all of it. He caused the blackout, he took out the generator at the clinic, everything, and you had to know. I shouldn't have left you alone with him. I shouldn't, and I'm sorry. I'm sorry about that, and I'm sorry about everything.

Zach: Well played. You and your sidekick got Kendall to walk away from me.

Ethan: Ah, she should've left you a long time ago.

Zach: You must be feeling pretty good about yourself.

Ethan: Yeah, I'm ecstatic.

Ryan: Talk to me, Kendall. Just tell me what's going on. Let me help you.

Kendall: Help me?

[Kendall gives Ryan a smack in the face.]

Kendall: Help me? You did it. You did it. Congratulations, you wrecked my life. How do you feel? Standing there all self-righteous, offering me water -- water -- "Sit down, sit down, Kendall, take a seat"! You had to be right and Zach had to be wrong. Well, are you happy now? You set out to play me and you did.

Ryan: Kendall, that is so completely not true.

Kendall: No -- yes, it is! Yes, it is! You blame me for losing Greenlee, you blame Zach, so God forbid, God forbid I am ever happy again. You have been waiting for the right moment to get back at us. Are we even now, Ryan? Are we even?

Ryan: I don't like Zach, and I don't trust him, but I didn't do this to get back at anybody, least of all you.

Kendall: Oh, oh, ok, so you had my best interests at heart, is that what you're saying? You want to know what my best interests were? Zach! Zach! My wedding! Happily ever after! Don't I deserve that? Do I not deserve that? You did this for yourself, you did not do this for me! If you think -- if you think that this was right for me and good for me, then you don't know me at all. You don't know me at all!

Ryan: I know that you loved Zach, Kendall. I know that you loved him, and I know that you trusted him, but look at what it cost you -- Greenlee, your best friend, the child that you wanted to give her. Kendall, it left you pregnant with our child. I mean, you have to be devastated. And I'm -- I am sorry. I am so completely and totally sorry, but you needed to know, Kendall. You needed to know before you married him again. And if you have to hate me for that, then hate me.

Zach: You really do hate me, don't you?

Ethan: If you love Kendall half as much as I did, then you finally know how I felt down on those docks in Florida. What's funny is Ryan and I really -- we didn't have to do that much. I mean, you set yourself up. We just let Kendall in on your little project.

Zach: Your grandfather's applauding you in hell. You really are a Cambias.

Ethan: I like being a Cambias. I just wish I'd been conceived without you in the mix. So why don't you go and enjoy your pain, Zach. You earned it.

Jack: You don't really think you can go after a young, innocent girl like Lily, do you, huh?

Lily: Dad, stop it! Jonathan's my boyfriend!

Jack: I want you -- he's not your boyfriend, Lily. Now, I want you to go inside, I want you to find your brother, and I want you to have him take you home.

Lily: No, I'm not going anywhere! No!

Jack: I want to have a talk with Mr. Lavery, all alone, just two of us.

Erin: What is going on here?

Aidan: Lily, what's happened?

Jonathan: Don't, don't worry about me, Lily, I'm fine.

Lily: My dad's very angry at Jonathan.

Aidan: Hey, Jack, why don't you calm down, huh?

Erin: Come here, Jonathan, we're going to let Aidan deal with this.

Lily: Stop! He wasn't doing anything wrong!

Jack: Oh, he was doing something very wrong, weren't you, Jonathan?

Lily: No, he would never hurt me!

Jonathan: Never. I would never hurt you, Lily.

Lily: Jonathan's my boyfriend, and he can kiss me whenever I want him to!

Jack: He's not your boyfriend, Lily. He is a grown man, for God's sake.

Lily: He is my boyfriend! He is!

Reggie: What's going on out here? What's wrong?

Jack: Take her home, please.

Reggie: Did he hurt you? Lily, what's wrong? Lily, wait.

Jonathan: No, Lily, come back!

Jack: Oh, no, no, no.

Aidan: Hey, why don't we go inside and have a chat?

Jack: About what, huh? About what? There was a time when you looked after my daughter. What happened to that, Aidan, and what the hell are you doing out of jail, anyway?

Livia: It's called bail, Jack, and I suggest you just step away from my client. Jonathan, what are you doing here? I told you to stay away from Lily and from this party.

Jack: Yeah, well, the Laverys don't take advice very well.

Erin: You shut up about my family!

Jack: You want to know about your family? I'll tell you about your family. Your brother Braden raped my sister, Ryan destroyed Greenlee, and Jonathan here, he likes to torture and murder. So if you think a Lavery's going to get to my Lily without going through me first, you got another thing coming.

Erica: I certainly was not going to allow you to make a scene downstairs. Jamie, you choose now of all times to tell me this outrageous story?

Josh: Didn't I tell you my dad would try something like this, Erica?

Jamie: Shut up, Josh. Your dad knows what's up, that's all. Erica, we need to get Amanda out of jail, ASAP.

Josh: He just hates the fact that I chose TV stardom over the sacred halls of medicine. And you know something else? He's jealous of our bond.

Jamie: That's a fascinating story, but do you think we can get to the goods? You drugged Erica.

Erica: And you'd better have something to back that up, Jamie, and I don't just mean the word of Amanda Dillon.

Josh: I knew you were jacked up, Dad, but you're actually lighting the torches yourself.

Greg: Erica just hasn't realized quite what you're capable of, Josh.

Erica: I certainly have realized the lies you're capable of, Greg.

Jamie: You finished med school, right?

Josh: What does that have to do with anything?

Jamie: Well, you would know what this drug could do to someone. Heck, even I know, I'm not even in med school.

Josh: What I know is that you hate me, ever since Babe used me to dump you.

Jamie: "Used" being the key word. But this isn't about Babe.

Erica: No, it certainly is not, and on that note, I'm going to end this entire conversation. Greg, I just can't believe this. One thing I have never had any doubt about is that you love your son. And now I find this astounding. How could you stoop so low? Whatever happened to protecting our children?

Greg: Josh wants your show. He'd do anything to knock you out of t way so that he can take over.

Erica: And if that were true, Josh would have accepted the opportunity to be the co-host with me on my show.

Josh: Dad's a little out of the loop.

Greg: Josh is also the one who's responsible for giving Greenlee Kendall's medical records from my clinic.

Erica: Well, now, why on earth would Josh care anything about Kendall and the clinic?

Greg: Because Josh knew that Kendallís secret would rock you.

Erica: Oh, now you are really reaching.

Greg: Josh, do you remember the conversation we had this evening? All about Erica's career and your ambition? I wasn't quite sure that I could remember it all word for word, so I took the added precaution of getting the entire thing on tape.

J.R.: You like to be bought, right? Here's some Benjamins. Good show, really.

Del: Well, I can't say that I won't take those off your hands.

J.R.: Why don't you wait till Opal's not looking, dig through her purse, maybe find some spare change in it.

Babe: Doesn't look like a very big purse tonight.

Opal: Why, Del, honey, what are you doing wasting your time with this piece of trash -- trouble?

Del: I was just trying to lose her.

Opal: Ah. Now, listen up, little girl -- you might think you got a chance with this guy, but when he comes home with me, he'll forget all about you.

Babe: Don't let me get in the way. He's all yours, please.

Opal: Good. Come on, sugar bunch, spin me around the dance floor. See you later.

J.R.: Well, I never thought I'd see the day you'd be fighting over the same man as Opal. When you going to give up this game?

Babe: You're the one who plays till the death.

J.R.: You're the one who doesn't play by the rules.

Babe: Your rules. Things were going great until you decided to deal me that ridiculous prenup. There's no way I'm ever going to sign away my son. Really, J.R., you should always know who you're playing with. I said no, you said we're done. Game over.

J.R.: I don't want it to be over.

Babe: Are you saying that you want to marry me again, no prenup? Because if you are, I'll marry you tonight. I'm sorry, I must not have heard you. How about, "Yes, Babe, you're all that matters, I want to be a family with you again"? No?

J.R.: Don't. Don't try to manipulate me.

Babe: I am being straight with you.

J.R.: When have you ever really been straight with me, Babe?

Babe: Look, don't you think it's about time, J.R.?

J.R.: You throw yourself at Jamie, Josh, Del, making sure that I'm watching the whole time, and you don't care about any one of those guys.

Babe: I am young, and I'm single, and I'm having a good time. You do remember what it's like to have a good time, don't you, J.R.? There's nothing wrong with that.

J.R.: Not if you love me.

Babe: You're not exactly doing anything to prove that that's mutual.

J.R.: So who are you shacking up with tonight, Babe? Or should I get a score card?

Babe: One thing's for sure -- it's definitely not going to be you.

J.R.: Then you're missing out.

Babe: Oh, God, don't flatter yourself. Unless you're done with that prenup, I've got nothing more to give you.

J.R.: Well, I guess you're just going to have to do the walk of shame from someone else's bed.

Babe: Let me make one point extremely clear to you. I am giving up on you, but I will not give up on our son. You can try whatever it is that you want, whatever your father pulled on your mother. You can lock me up, you can trash me, but I will always be a part of our son's life until the day I die.

[Dixie continues watching the action from the wings.]

Kendall: I do hate you. I hate you! I hate everything that you've done to me.

Ryan: I can live with that.

Kendall: Oh, you can live with that? Really, can you, Ryan? I'm carrying your child! You watched a sonogram with me. You remember that? You remember being scared together? How can we do anything together when you've done this to me?

Ryan: I did what I thought was right, Kendall.

Kendall: Oh, my God, I'm so sick and tired of people thinking that I need protection. I don't need it or want it, especially from you.

Ryan: Would you really have wanted Zach to get away with what he did? Would you really have been happy, I mean really happy, not knowing what he did?

Kendall: Yes. Yes! I wish to God I never knew. I wish I was in Paris right now, a totally, blissfully ignorant, completely happy bride-to-be. And you have stolen my last chance for that, and I will never, ever forgive you for taking my life away from me, ever!

Josh's voice: I can do anything to Erica's career. In a year, she'll be some semi-forgotten celeb, lucky if she can get a half-hour on "Whatever Became of..." and I'll be the one on top.

Greg: I can't take the full credit for this. I got the idea from you, Josh.

Josh: Since when have I tried to trash your reputation just for the hell of it?

Greg: Josh bugged your office. He's been onto everything you've done, every move you've made.

Josh: You set me up!

Jamie: Finally get the truth.

Josh: You put those words in my mouth! He's not even telling you how he pushed me into that conversation.

Jamie: Just give it up. You're done.

Josh: Who the hell are you? You know, I sure hope Amanda's good in the sack.

Greg: This is not about Mr. Martin's morals.

Erica: Derek Frye, please. This is Erica Kane. Derek, it's Erica. Please let Amanda Dillon out of jail right away. Bring her here to me, to my Mardi Gras Ball. I have new evidence in my drugging case.

[Music plays]

Image: Peek-a-boo.

Janet: I see you, too. Shh.

Image: Turn off the fashion cam. It's almost showtime. There's just one more thing left to do.

Janet: Consider it done.

Adam: "I had to give you that raise, Henderson, because frankly, we're fiscally fixed."

[Brooke giggles at Adamís impersonation.]

David: You see our daughter? Plan's not going so well.

Krystal: Oh, wouldn't you just love for Babe and J.R. to fall apart.

David: You have to ask? Looks like I'm going to be getting my wish.

Krystal: Well, I wouldn't be opening up your big trap just yet.

Julia: Kendall? You seem upset. Is everything ok?

Kendall: Since when do you give a damn how I feel?

Julia: I spoke with Ryan earlier. He kind of filled me in.

Kendall: Of course he did. You know what? You want Ryan, he's all yours. Just take him as far away from me as possible and make sure he never comes back, please.

Opal: You have to listen to me. You cannot be telling -- you have to tell me what it is you want me to do. It's not your place.

[Palmer covers his ear as Opal babbles on.]

Babe: Mama, I had to cut off J.R. He won't give up on that stupid prenup, and I'm not just going to sign away my son.

Krystal: Are you sure J.R. won't finally just walk on this one?

Babe: No, I'm not.

[Holding the mask to her face, Dixie descends the staircase so she can listen in on the conversation.]

J.R.: Good. Glad I'm interrupting.

Di: J.R. Is something happening with you and Babe?

J.R.: Oh, you think you can just put on a mask, and I'll forget? Stay out of my life.

Tad: J.R., take it easy. She's just concerned.

J.R.: Oh, look at you, settling for the cheap imitation because the real one's not around anymore. You know, the fake ingredients kill.

Tad: J.R. -- last I heard, grudges aren't that good for your health, either.

Di: Something's obviously wrong with you.

J.R.: Will you shut up? You're not my mother.

Tad: No, she's not. Your mother is gone.

J.R.: Oh. Well, I'm glad one of us remembers.

Jonathan: I have to find Lily.

Jack: You go anywhere near her, I will kill you! I'll find you!

Livia: I am warning you, Jack, stop threatening my client.

Jack: Your client should be in jail. That's where he belongs, Livia.

Ryan: What the hell is going on here?

Jack: Your brother was molesting my daughter.

Erin: Molesting?

Jonathan: She asked me to kiss her, Mr. Montgomery. Lily asked me to kiss her.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on, Jonathan. I thought you were at the ski lodge with Erin and Aidan.

Jonathan: I was, but I snuck out. Lily got me this to wear, so that I could take her to the ball. I just didn't want to disappoint her.

Julia: Jonathan, what happened? Are you ok?

Jack: Julia, what's with all the concern? Don't forget who this is and what he did to Edmund.

Ryan: Nobody's forgetting anything, Jack.

Jonathan: Julia's my teacher in Life Skills.

Jack: All this time my daughter's been in class with this psychopath and you didn't think it was important enough to mention to me?

Aidan: Did you find Lily?

Reggie: No, I lost her.

Jack: We got to find her.

Aidan: Why don't me and you go check upstairs?

Julia: I'll -- I'll check the parking lot.

Jonathan: I -- I want to find Lily, too.

Ryan: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, no, no, no, you cannot go after Lily right now.

Jonathan: I have to go find her, Ryan. I have to make sure she's ok. I love her. I love Lily.

[In the wine cellar, Zach hears someone crying.]

Zach: Lily?

Lily: Hurt, hurt. Hurt, hurt.

Zach: Somebody hurt you? What happened?

Lily: Hurt. Love hurts. Love hurts. Love hurts.

Lily: Love hurts. Love hurts.

Zach: Lily, it's ok, I'm here.

Lily: Always hurts. Always hurts.

Zach: Hey, hey, take a breath. Just take a breath. There, see? You're ok. You're fine. Now, why does love always hurt?

Lily: Well, my boyfriend loves me, my dad loves me, but my dad doesn't want me to be with my boyfriend. How can you not be with the person you love?

Zach: Well, sometimes things are more complicated.

Lily: Now, I told my dad that Jonathan's better, he won't hurt me. But my dad, he doesn't believe me. He doesn't -- he doesn't believe me, he doesn't treat me like a normal person.

Zach: Jonathan? Jonathan Lavery?

Lily: Yes. He's better now. He's my boyfriend. And Jonathan makes me happy. How can my dad love me and try to keep me from what makes me happy?

Jonathan: Lily's so nice, Ryan. I mean, she helps me with everything. She -- she taught me how to listen better. I wasn't very good at that before.

Ryan: I'm -- I'm really glad that Lily's helped you, I really am, but can't you see that this is a bad idea?

Jonathan: She's helped me relearn so many things. For a while, I didn't know if I was going to be better, I mean, "better like you and Erin" better. But Lily taught me that I can be as good as I want to be. We're good together, Ryan. I -- I don't get mad at her like I did with the other girls, and I would never, ever touch her like that. Not because she doesn't like to be touched, because she's an angel. She's pure. I want to be with her.

Ryan: You care about her. But can't you see the problem with this?

Jonathan: Her father doesn't like me.

Ryan: Well, you weren't very nice to Lily last year, Jonathan, and Jack is angry.

Jonathan: I haven't hurt anyone.

Ryan: But Lily is a teenager. She's a special teenager, Jonathan. Look, you -- you've had experiences that Lily is just not comfortable with yet.

Jonathan: I've never been with anyone that understands me like Lily does.

Ryan: Look, I doubt that Jack will ever approve of you spending time with her.

Jonathan: He can yell at me, push me all he wants. It's not going to change how I feel about Lily. I love her, Ryan, and I'll love her forever.

Lily: I have had three boyfriends. Aidan was the first one. But he wasn't really my boyfriend, more a friend, and I didn't know that then. And then Sam was the second one, and he said he loved me, but he got mad at me sometimes. And then Jonathan, he's really nice to me. Like, he took all the red off a Christmas wreath for me, because I don't like red.

Zach: Yeah, but Jonathan did a lot of bad things to a lot of people.

Lily: I know he locked me in a cave. I remember. He scared me. But he's better, and he's so sorry now. Why can't people forgive other people when they're really sorry?

Zach: Well, some people have a hard time forgetting the past. It makes it hard to forgive.

[Music plays]

Kendall: Oh, don't even think about it, J.R.

J.R.: Think about what? How great you look? The pregnant glow's really doing it for you.

Kendall: Ok --

J.R.: It's really doing it for me.

Kendall: Oh, would you spare me the booty call, please? I'm not in the mood.

J.R.: Wait, wait, wait a minute. I just wanted to dance. You can give me one little dance, can't you?

Kendall: No, no, J.R., I don't dance.

J.R.: Oh, but we used to dance all the time.

Kendall: Would you just -- J.R., please stop, ok? I've seen you with Babe. You're so wrapped up in that lying slut, you might as well be wearing a bow. Why don't you just accept it and live miserably ever after and leave me alone, please.

[Still holding her mask, Dixie continues to spy on her loved ones.

Tad: I swear, the angrier J.R. gets, the less of Dixie I see.

[Derek escorts Amanda upstairs.]

Tad: Uh, excuse me.

Erica: Thank you so much for bringing Amanda so quickly.

Derek: Let's hear this new evidence.

Erica: Amanda, you certainly look none the worse for wear after your stay.

Amanda: Why are you suddenly treating me like a human being? Has something happened?

Jamie: We got some news about the drugging.

Tad: This isn't about fundraising, is it?

Erica: No, Tad. Please join us.

Josh: Yeah, come on in. Why don't we invite the whole town? We could make some popcorn.

Tad: The show going to be that good?

Erica: Before Amanda was arrested, she claimed that it was Josh who sabotaged me, that it was Josh who drugged me.

Josh: Too much lip-gloss went to her head.

Erica: Amanda, please tell us right now exactly why you believe that to be the case.

Josh: Yeah, Amanda, go ahead. Just remember, you slip up on one little fact, and they're going to use it to build a stronger case against you.

Erica: Go ahead, Amanda.

Amanda: Remember when he claimed I erased the master tape to the Geraldo interview? Erica, I swear I didn't.

Josh: She'll say anything to save herself.

Jamie: Let her talk.

Amanda: Then he gave me the wrong address so that you missed your makeup interview. Funny, though, he managed to save the day and do it himself. And that tea I gave you, the cup that was spiked, Josh is the one that gave it to me. Everything that has gone wrong, Josh was right there with me.

Erica: Thank you, Amanda. I really wish we had listened to you from the beginning. Derek? We have made a terrible mistake putting Amanda Dillon in jail. This tape corroborates everything.

[Erica sighs]

Erica: Well, I certainly hope that you kept your jail open, because you'll be getting another guest very soon. Arrest Josh Madden. I've wasted too much time on him already.

Derek: What do you have to say for yourself?

Josh: I didn't confess to any crime. Were you listening to the same tape I was?

Erica: I would be forgotten in a year? You really think you could do that?

Josh: What can I say, I'm ambitious. I know how to get what I want. That's not a federal offense.

Derek: Don't worry, we'll get you in state court first.

Josh: I would never stoop to drugging someone to get what I want. I'm smarter than that.

Amanda: You're capable of just about anything.

Josh: It's my word against yours. Who are they going to believe, multiple graduate degrees, sparkling record, or you? Do you even have any friends in this town?

Erica: She has me now.

Josh: Am I supposed to be afraid of that?

Erica: Nobody plays Erica Kane. Firing you won't be enough -- and, yes, you are definitely fired. And by the time I'm finished with you, you will wish you hadn't been born. He's all yours, Derek.

Josh: You have nothing against me. I did nothing wrong. Some 2-bit tramp's word and a conversation? Doesn't amount to a flipping thing. You can't force me to go anywhere unless you're going to arrest me. Didn't think so.

Erica: Derek?

Greg: I'm sorry, Erica.

Amanda: Thank you so much, Erica. Thank you for listening to me.

Derek: Maybe we should give Erica a little space.

Tad: Erica, we need to talk.

Erica: No, we do not, not now. Please, I really do need a little space, a little time alone. I have to pull myself together before I go back downstairs.

Tad: If you're going back downstairs, then what I have to say can't wait.

Erica: Yeah, it will have to wait. Please, Tad, one drama at a time.

Tad: No. I'm sorry. I have to tell you something, something about Josh.

Ryan: The are a lot of people out there looking for Lily. Somebody's going to find her.

Jonathan: I'm the only one that knows where to look for her, Ryan. I have to make sure she's all right.

Ryan: The last thing that Jack wants is you finding Lily, the last.

Jonathan: When you care about someone, you're supposed to take care of them and watch out for them. It doesn't matter if it makes people angry or not. Isn't that right, Ryan?

Lily: I should be able to choose the boyfriend I want. I mean, Kendall chose you, and no one likes you. Did that stop you two?

Zach: Do you love Jonathan?

Lily: Well, I don't know yet. But I won't get the chance to find out if I'm not allowed to be with him.

Zach: Well, he's lucky to have you in his corner.

Lily: I'm not in his corner. I'm in his heart. I've been doing a lot of reading about love, and what they say when you're in love and you say that you're in their heart, it's called being sentimental.

Zach: I'm not a sentimental guy, but I get your point.

Lily: I want to go back to the party. I want to find Jonathan.

Zach: Why don't you try and find your dad, talk to him about how you feel?

Lily: Why should I? He never listens to me.

Zach: He loves you. He's your dad. He's a good dad. Not everyone has that. You don't want to lose that.

Ethan: It's what I've been waiting for since he married Kendall, you know? And -- ahem -- a part of me feels great.

Simone: At least it's over. And you're going to be fine. You know why? Because you have me. Let me be enough. Let us be enough.

Di: Hey, Babe. You and J.R. were having quite a throwdown earlier, huh?

Babe: Wouldn't be a day with J.R. without him accusing me of something.

Di: Yeah, well, I mean, I thought you guys were trying to get back together. He's obviously upset. What's wrong?

Babe: Look, I really don't need the third degree from you, of all people, ok?

Di: Yeah, well, J.R. hates me, that's a given, but, Babe, I still love him. You must know that.

Babe: Even though he goes after you again and again?

Di: Yeah. So whatever it is you're doing, I hope you're doing it because you love him.

[Standing at the bottom of the staircase, Dixie eavesdrops some more.]

Adam: Don't tell me you're still obsessing over that hussy and her prenup. Son, you have to protect your interests. It's not a mistake, trust me. Now, do I assume we're back on the right track?

J.R.: Oh, definitely. I'm definitely on the right track.

Adam: Good. I'll drink to that.

J.R.: I'm going to marry Babe. Before I do, I'm going to tear up that damn prenup. Choke on that.

Jack: Brooke, Brooke, have you seen Lily anywhere?

Brooke: No. Is she ok?

Reggie: No, she's not ok.

Aidan: I haven't seen her by the pond, either.

Jack: I don't even know where else to look. I really don't. Sweetheart, am I glad to see you. You had us all very worried.

Zach: She's fine. I found her in the cellar.

Jack: Thanks, Zach.

Lily: Zach says I should talk to you about Jonathan.

Jack: Not right now. Right now all I'm concerned about is what's best for you, ok?

Jonathan: They found Lily. I have to talk to her, Ryan.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, easy, easy. Let's leave Lily and Jack alone for a little while, all right? Come on.

Jack: Things have been very hectic around here, very crazy, and I apologize for that. Lily, I think it might be a good idea if you were to leave Pine Valley for a little while, go back to your old school, just -- just for a little while.

Lily: You want to send me away?

Jamie: So when can we bring Josh in, and what happens now with Amanda?

Derek: It's hard to say.

Jamie: She doesn't have to go back to jail, does she?

Derek: I have to talk to the DA. Give me a minute.

Jamie: Amanda?

[Down in the cellar, Janet pops open a bottle of champagne and indulges in some bubbly.]

Janet: These people never should have messed with you, Amanda, sweetie! Ha! Here's to the ones we love, here's to the ones who love us. If the ones we love don't love us back, then bye-bye to them. Mmm.

Josh: What kind of father are you?

Greg: The kind of father who wouldn't let his son ruin other people's lives.

Josh: Why do you care so much about Erica Kane, anyway?

Greg: You have no idea what you are doing.

Josh: I don't? How could you do this to me?

Erica: Please, Tad, I do not want to hear if Josh Madden had something else planned for me.

Tad: Oh, no, he -- he definitely didn't plan this. The truth is I wasn't going to tell you about it tonight --

Erica: Well, then don't. No, please don't. I am done with Josh Madden -- and his father, for that matter.

Tad: I'm not so sure. You may want to rethink getting even with Josh after you hear this.

Erica: Ok, then just say it, all right? I'm in no mood, Tad.

Tad: Ok, so brace yourself because this is definitely not going to help.

Erica: Out with it!

Tad: Erica, Josh Madden is your son.

Zach: I love you, and I'm not going to give up on you or us.

J.R.: What's the matter, Dad? You afraid I'm going to give away more of the Chandler fortune to a Carey?

Adam: You are dumber than a box of rocks if you marry that girl without a prenup. What the hell is that?

J.R.: This? It's a star necklace. Mom's. I'm going to give it to Babe.

Adam: That would be an insult to your mother's memory.

J.R.: Since when do you know anything about my mother's memory? You got a kick out of using her and tossing her away when she was alive. And don't think I forgot how you got her pregnant the first time, then had her committed to get custody. I think she'd be happy that I'm giving this beautiful necklace to the woman that I love.

[From behind a door, the masked Dixie listens in.]

>> Next week on "All My Children" --

Janet: We are going to blow this popsicle stand tonight.

[After Janet blows up the casino, an injured Tad calls out amidst the wreckage and bodies.]

Tad: Is anyone alive?
