Tad: Come on. It's got to be around here somewhere. Janet's well, Natalie's home away from home. So where is it, Janet? Who'd you shove in this time?

[While searching around the woods with his flashlight, Tad is felled by a punch to the face.]

Dixie: "I won't die." You can make a promise like that?

Zach: Mm-hmm, I can. Take my word and my offer. I have hundreds of rooms.

Dixie: Now, look, I -- I've wasted too much time already. I have to go.

Zach: You have to go and do what? Open that wound and bleed on my couch some more?

Dixie: Look, I'm fine.

Zach: Yeah, I can see that. Whoever shot you won't get to you here.

Dixie: Look, you have to forget about this, ok? You have to forget this ever happened.

Zach: I will. As soon as I send my friends out to find whoever did this to you, I'll forget all about it.

Dixie: No, no, no, no, no. You can't do that. You -- you have to promise me that you're not going to go after him.

Zach: "Him"? Do you know who it was? You know who shot you?

Dixie: It was my son.

J.R.: Where does your wack-job mother have Babe and my son?

Jamie: Hey, hey, back off, J.R.!

Amanda: Hey! J.R., I don't know, I swear.

J.R.: Liar! Tell me!

Amanda: You're hurting me!

Jamie: Let go of her!

Amanda: God.

J.R.: You say it, or I'll reach down your throat, and I'll rip it out of you.

Babe: What do you mean, Little A and I are never going to leave this cabin again?

Janet: Oh, come on, Babe, you're smarter than that. You know I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. It's over. Fini, nada mas. It is a cruel, cruel world out there, and you are never going to have to deal with it again.

[Janet stands in the doorway wielding a sledge hammer.]

Zach: Your son, Junior -- he's the one that shot at you, the one you want to protect, that guy?

Dixie: Come on, now, he didn't intentionally shoot me.

Zach: He didn't intentionally shoot you?

Dixie: Oh. Look, he -- he cannot know that he hit me, do you understand? It would kill him, ok? He wasn't aiming at me. He wasn't --

Zach: Oh --

Dixie: I wasn't in the room, he didn't know that I was outside. He didn't mean to shoot me.

Zach: He doesn't know you're here, does he?

Dixie: He doesn't know that I'm alive.

Zach: Ok. So tell me again, why did he shoot his gun?

Dixie: Was upset. He was angry. He's -- he was drunk. He was frustrated, because his child is missing. He thought Babe took his son, but she didn't. It was Janet. Janet has both the mother of his child and his son. She kidnapped them both after the Mardi Gras explosion.

Zach: Ok, ok, ok. Who's this woman, Janet? Who is that?

Dixie: Janet Dillon?

Zach: I -- I don't know. She kidnapped Babe and the kid, why?

Dixie: Because she's crazy.

Zach: How crazy?

Dixie: She's just completely crazy. She -- she killed my brother. Look, you're just going to have to take my word for it that she's completely nuts. She's capable of anything, even hurting a child, and J.R. doesn't know where his son is, and he thinks that he could be hurt or -- or he could be dead.

Zach: Ok, ok, ok. If there is good news, I guess it's that Babe is with her kid.

Dixie: And what about Babe? I mean, is she smart? Does she love her son? Will she protect him?

Zach: Yes, she will do anything for Little Adam. She will do whatever it takes.

Babe: I hope that's not a new toy for Little A.

Janet: This is what I call a timesaver -- one good smash, and then you're on to the next one.

Babe: To the next what?

Janet: Sign.

Janet: Keep out the Nosy Nellies and the Looky-Lous so nobody bothers our family.

Babe: I'm not quite sure I understand.

Janet: Oh, it's my fault. Sometimes my brain works so fast, I can hardly keep up, let alone someone who's, you know, not in here with me. Ah. We stay here, make this our new home! This will be our home. I feel it. It's going to be such a wonderful place for you and me and our son.

Babe: Oh, but are you sure that signs will be able to keep people out? I think, like, of snakes like J.R. -- he barely obeys the law, much less a sign, especially when he's looking for his child and now, Janet, they know about you. They're going to be looking for you.

Janet: It is so sweet of you to be worried about your new mom. But you don't need to, because they are never going to think to look here for me. They'll never find me. Don't you worry, and you know what? They're not going to find you or the baby. Don't you worry -- they'll never find us here, and we're going to have such a special time.

Babe: It's so fun, it sounds like a dream. Oh. It's just, it's too bad it won't last. We're going to -- we're going to have to eat, we're going to need supplies, and we're going to need clothes. Little Adam is outgrowing his shoes every few weeks now.

Janet: Look, I got at least six months worth of food --

Babe: Oh.

Janet: And we got plenty of cash. I cleaned out Trevor's and my bank accounts, and I raided the Chandler wall safe.

Babe: Hmm.

Janet: Ha! Serve them right, won't it? So, Little A can have all the shoes that he wants. Maybe I should make him some, but I think he should go barefoot in the summer. A little boy with his feet in the ground.

Babe: What happens if he gets a really bad splinter? He could get -- he could get poison ivy. He'd have to go see the doctor, right?

Janet: Listen to you! You are such a -- a city girl. No. You and me and Little Adam at one with nature -- this is the way life was supposed to be.

Tad: Hayward? Get that stupid thing out of my face. What is wrong with you? What the hell is your problem?

David: What is my problem? Your smug, useless boys -- that's my problem. My daughter missing, my grandson missing -- those are my problem.

Tad: Right. So if you want to break somebody's jaw, go after Janet Dillon. Don't go after me and don't go after my boys.

David: J.R. has been trying to destroy her just like he destroys everything else in his life. And Jamie is just as bad because he's clueless. Man. Their only hope was Dixie. Those boys were doomed the second she died.

Jamie: Suddenly you get it? Janet's had Babe all along.

J.R.: And your playmate here knows where they are.

Amanda: J.R., look, I'm trying. I swear I have no idea. I'm sorry.

Jamie: Is this how you help Babe, help find your son? Make threats, throw a tantrum?

J.R.: And what do you do? You hold hands with the psycho's daughter? You play big, protective hero? I'm not James! I don't care what happens to you! You tell me where Janet is, or so help me, I will make you.

Derek: There a problem?

J.R.: Why haven't you found Babe and my son? Do I have to call the governor so that you do your job?

Derek: I got the list you e-mailed -- places Janet might be? I need you to help me break it down, Amanda.

J.R.: So now you'll talk, and I'll be right here to listen.

Derek: And why would I allow that?

J.R.: My son.

Derek: My case, which you've royally screwed up, and I'll toss you in jail for obstruction if you don't get out of my face.

J.R.: You don't want to mess with me, Frye.

Derek: Yeah, I know, I know. You'll have my job. Get out -- now.

J.R.: I'm not done with you.

Krystal: Why are we here?

Adam: So you can rest and recover.

Krystal: Oh, and eat bonbons and watch reruns? My two babies need me.

Adam: Yes, they do need you safe and calm and looked after.

Krystal: Oh, and who's going to do that, huh? You?

Adam: Yes, if you'll let me.

Krystal: Oh, what kind of sucker do you think I am? You pulled this big-hearted, "Adam caring for freaked-out Krystal" routine last time crazy lady took Little Adam. Remember what happened then?

Adam: You refused to accept my comfort.

Krystal: Because you said my pain served me right. You said it was exactly what I needed. You want to jerk someone around, you find someone else, because you are not going to shine me on ever again.

Adam: I could see the fear in your eyes, and I want to fix it.

Krystal: You as good as told your goons to blast my little girl on sight. And then your son almost killed me as a bonus, so don't make nice and try to act concerned. Don't you ever touch me again.

Janet: "Stay away." I thought "trespassers will be shot" just sounded a tad harsh.

Babe: And not true, right?

Janet: Oh, yeah, of course it's true. But, you know, why tip our hand? Oh, Babe. Nobody's going to bother us, and tonight, we're going to start our wonderful new life together -- new family, new freedoms like you don't even imagine.

Babe: Oh, no, she can't. No, no, she can't, we can't. Hey, little man, it's ok.

Little Adam: No, I want to stay in.

Babe: It's ok. I know you want to go. I know, I know. Hey, come here. I promise you not one more night in this place, but Mama's going to have to find another way. I think it's time for your mama to turn commando, sweet boy.

Jamie: You want Amanda to know how much you hate her? She does. You want her scared out of her mind? She is, and she is also in there with the chief of police trying to nail down where Janet has Babe and Little A.

J.R.: Well, she'd better think a lot faster!

Jamie: You and your mouth make Amanda shut down. Damn it, J.R. You want to blow this for your son?

J.R.: Oh, you have the stones to pin this on me? It's my fault my son's missing? Coming from the guy who stole my son, who wanted my son to call him "Daddy"?

Jamie: Oh, that's it, J.R. Go drown in the past, up to your eyeballs. Don't deal with the here-and-now. You want your son home, so do I.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, because you love him so much.

Jamie: Yes. And I care about Babe. And as big of a jerk as you can be, I still love you. I mean, do you get it now, J.R.? I want your family back safe and sound with you.

Babe: Signs go in ok?

Janet: One swift of my sledgie-wammy. How's our boy?

Babe: A little homesick, I think.

Janet: Isn't it wonderful how children are so adaptable? It's getting late, though. There is no supper on this table. Let's see what we have for dinner and what does our --

Babe: How about a can of soup --

Janet: Freezer have for us?

Babe: Or nothing. I'm -- I'm not really that hungry.

Janet: Oh, nonsense. Little boys need tasteful meals. I used to make my Amanda tasteful but healthy meals. Of course, that was in the old days. Trevor, are you -- you're such a freezer potato. Yeah, I could hand you a remote. and it would just be same old same old, except now you can't boss me around or anyone else in my new family, so you just relax. You chill out.

Babe: You know, toast? Toast sounds really good right now.

Janet: Babe? Babe? Do not be afraid of him. I know how to put Trevor in his place, and he is going to stay there until he is ready to come out and play nice. All right. Now, here we go. I think leg of lamb -- whoops. Ha! You might need that when the thaw comes, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

Babe: Oh, God.

Janet: What's the matter? Babe?

Babe: Nothing, it's -- it's a lot of food.

Janet: Yeah, it's frozen solid, too. That's not going to defrost until tomorrow. You know, if my sledgehammer hadn't worked, I could've used this -- huh. You know, time for plan B. All right, we have got beans, rice, pasta. What sounds good?

Babe: Plan B works for me.

[Babe eyes the huge frozen leg of lamb that Janet just took out of the meat freezer where Trevor's body rests.]

Tad: Dixie’s life is off-limits to you -- her name, her memory, the fact that she ever existed.

David: Sorry, Martin. You can't rewrite history. I was there.

Oh. I know you were there, Dave. That's a fact I'll never forget. Let me tell you something -- you think my sons are to blame for what happened? Well, I think you're to blame, because you're absolutely right. Jamie and J.R.’s life went straight to hell the day that Dixie died, and she died because of you.

David: Oh, there you go rewriting history still. I saved her life.

Tad: You did your job. And in your mind, that makes you some kind of a hero, a fact that you could never let her forget, because you wanted her in the worst way.

David: Yeah, that's right. And I had her in the best.

Tad: Touché, Dave. What, am I supposed to cringe? You think I give a crap that you slept with Dixie?

David: Oh, you know, I don't care what you think, Martin. The fact is this -- I made Dixie happy.

Tad: No, you're -- wait --

David: No, no, I'm sorry.

Tad: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

David: The word was "blissful."

Tad: No, no, who's rewriting history now? Let's go over the facts, shall we? She loved me, not you. She was married to me, not you, three times -- count them, three. She didn't go to Europe to have your child, Dave. That was my baby girl, a child she wanted so badly she was willing to risk her life, and that turned you inside out, so you did everything you possibly could to make sure she left us.

David: She left because she didn't want you to rule her world.

Tad: No. She left because you lied to her. You turned her inside out, played on her fear, make her think she had to keep that secret, make her run and hide someplace that I would never find her.

David: Yeah, that's right. That's right -- where you wouldn't find her and force her to terminate her pregnancy. Dixie wanted a baby, Tad, even yours! And you couldn't get out from behind your own ego to see that.

Tad: No, I guess not, because the only thing I could see was the fact that the pregnancy might kill her, and I wanted her alive. I wanted Dixie alive. That's all I ever wanted.

Zach: Oh, look at you. You're standing. That's perfect -- now you can sit back down.

Dixie: I have --

Zach: You try that jacket on later.

Dixie: I have to help J.R. find his son.

Zach: Ok. You want to help him? Do it by feeling better. Heal, eat something.

Dixie: Oh.

Zach: Come on.

Dixie: Come on. I know.

Zach: All right.

Dixie: Oh, Janet --

Zach: Now, listen -- listen to me. Chandler security, there's police -- everyone's looking for them. They're going to find the mother and the child.

Dixie: I know Janet. I know how to look for her.

Zach: All right, then tell me. I'll go look for her. What? You're not strong enough to make it to the lobby. You can't go on a manhunt.

Dixie: I can't let J.R. suffer. To not know where your baby is, to not know if they're ok -- I've been through that. I can't let J.R. go through what I did.

J.R.: Just shut up. Whoever you claim to love or care about, I just want my son back.

Jamie: That's right. You do what you do best -- pick a fight, make threats. Just try not to get in the way of the people who are actually trying to bring Janet down.

J.R.: I can't do it, Jamie. I can't lose Babe and my son. Here, in here. It's either -- it's either yell or cry or die inside. They're out there somewhere where I can't find them, and I can't help them.

Jamie: You're scared. So am I. I'm scared as hell.

J.R.: What if I lose them again, Jamie? What if Babe and my son -- what if they're already –

Krystal: I will have J.R. thrown in jail so fast --

Adam: I am sorry. I'm so sorry.

Krystal: And if they don't get him on attempted murder and kidnapping and whatever else Chief Frye can think of --

Adam: How would I know that he was going to kidnap you?

Krystal: I'm sure that judge will convict him on being a spoiled, nasty -- oh, and you can just forget --

Adam: And the gun?

Krystal: About those judges that you have in your pocket, because I'll find judges somewhere else, so help me I will!

Adam: I'm sorry that you were -- I'm so relieved you weren't hurt. Tell me what I can do to make it all up to you.

Krystal: Make it up to me?

Adam: Yes.

Krystal: You really think you can do that? Make it ok that your son almost killed me, that you poisoned the man against Babe to begin with?

Adam: No, I've admitted that, and I hate that I did that. Just tell me what I can do to convince you how sorry I am.

Krystal: Oh. All this so I won't press charges against your precious Junior, then I turn around, and you're just going to be a creep all over again.

Adam: No, I hate what I did.

Krystal: Because you got busted.

Adam: No, because you almost got hurt. And your daughter's out there, and you're terrified.

Krystal: You think Babe is trash.

Adam: You love her more than life itself, Krystal. Look, I just -- I can't stand to see you in pain. I -- I want to help you. I want -- I want us to help each other. I want us to be a family again. Please, to survive this, let me help you.

Krystal: Then bring me my baby and my grandbaby. You tell me that they are ok, that they are safe, that Janet is gone and that no one, no one will ever hurt them again. Can you tell me that? Well, then, damn it, what good are you to me?

Janet: You are such a good mother's little helper, Babe. It's too bad about dinner tonight. That's all right. Lamb tomorrow will be wonderful.

[Janet gasps]

Janet: Oh! We should dress for dinner. Wouldn't that be fun? We could have candlelight and fancy clothes. Honey, could you go get me the salt? It's over there.

Babe: Yeah. Sure. But, you know, Little Adam, he -- he doesn't have any dress clothes, so --

Janet: That's all right. He's just as cute as can be anyway, but you're right. You know, we should make him something special. I used to make a -- I used to make a lot of dresses and costumes. I could teach you.

Babe: I'm kind of a slow learner.

Janet: It's ok. We have all the time in the world now here.

Babe: You know, that'd be fine for me, but Little Adam -- he's going to preschool soon and, you know --

Janet: Honey, homeschool is where it's at, and mathematics -- that'll be a snap since I'm a certifiable accountant -- "certified," I mean. Could you open that? And art -- I always found the paint-by-numbers kits very soothing. We should send away for some this week.

Babe: We don't exactly get the postman out here banging on the door.

Janet: Our son is going to grow up to be an amazing young man.

[When Janet turns around to set the table, Babe whacks her on the back of the head with the frozen leg of lamb.]

Dixie: Thank you.

Zach: Now, back at the cemetery, you were telling me about J.R., but there's something you're not telling me.

Dixie: Oh -- when I went to Europe, I was pregnant with a little girl.

Zach: The accident.

Dixie: I can't tell you about this, I'm sorry.

Zach: It's ok.

Dixie: It's just the thought of my son in that kind of pain -- I have to help my son, ok?

Zach: I'm not an expert, but I don't think a glass of water is going to help this.

Dixie: Yeah, well, like you said, you're not an expert.

Zach: Ok. You stay here, and I will add my men to the search.

Dixie: Back at the cemetery, didn't you say something about not interfering in other people's lives?

Zach: Yeah, you're right, I did. Ok. I won't send my men. You go ahead. I'll follow you.

Adam: I got it.

Krystal: Nothing?

Adam: No new leads, no -- no trails for Janet or Little Adam.

Krystal: Or Babe.

Adam: Yeah.

Krystal: I guess I should be grateful, huh? Relieved that your goons didn't take a shot at my little girl?

Adam: You have my word that Babe will not be injured by one of my men.

Krystal: Your word -- your word means squat to me, and J.R.’s even less. Huh. Here I thought I was such a good mama. When Babe decided she wanted J.R. back, I didn't tie her up and ship her off. That's what a real mama would have done. Not pitched in and helped out. I aided. I abetted. I could -- I could just kick myself.

Adam: What are you talking about? Aiding and abetting?

Krystal: Babe had visions of her and J.R. back in her head. The white dress, the vows. Them and their son. And when I couldn't talk them out of it, I hooked up with you -- to clear the trail for Babe and to keep an eye on her son.

Adam: You're not making any sense. You didn't come here willingly. You're forgetting that West Virginia moonshine --

Krystal: Oh.

Adam: And that ridiculous bar.

Krystal: Yeah, well, check me out, huh? I did the impossible. I managed to out drink and out think the great Adam Chandler. Mm-hmm. While you were having me, Adam, I was having you all over. Our wedding night. I conned you. I wasn't taken in by -- by moonshine and all your -- your sex appeal. I needed an in to the Chandler Mansion. And you were it. I married you on purpose, Adam, so that Babe could have her son back.

Babe: Ok. Ok. Oh -- oh, God. Oh, please -- please -- please don't let me have committed murder. Please, please. Ok. Oh. Oh. Ok, ok. Good! Good, good, good. No murder, not murder, just self-defense, ok. Now, if you could just stay out long enough for what? For what? Come on, Babe, think, think, think. For -- for -- the keys. The keys. Yes, yes, yes, the keys. The cabinet, the cell phone, open the door. Yes, ok, keys. Ok, check in the pocket. Keys -- ok. Come on. Oh, come on, you've got to be kidding me. Oh, come on, baby, hurry.

[Babe gasps as she pulls the keys out of Janet's pocket.]

Babe: Yes, ok. Oh, yes, thank God! Thank God, thank God, thank God!

[Janet regains consciousness and grabs Babe.]

J.R.: My son -- the woman that I love -- it's like I just lose them over and over again, and I -- I can't do it, Jamie. I can't do it again.

Jamie: You don't have to do this on your own. People love you, J.R. cut yourself some slack. Let us in. Trust us.

J.R.: Yeah. Trust.

Jamie: Can giving us a shot be worse than dealing with this on your own? Then give us a shot. I swear, you won't be let down again.

Derek: I've got black and whites hitting the spots on here now. You think of a new place, you let me know right away.

Amanda: Derek, please do not let them hurt her.

Derek: My word to you and Trevor -- we'll do our best.

Amanda: My dad? Have you talked to him? Did you find out where he is?

Derek: Not yet. I'm going through channels. Government types say the same thing -- there's no employee by that name, no secret mission. Takes a while.

Amanda: Then forget the government, ok? My mom says he's overseas. Let's put it in the paper, take out billboards.

Derek: We push too hard, we might blow your dad's cover, compromise the mission.

Amanda: My dad's mission should be my mom.

Derek: We'll find Trevor. Just takes a while.

Janet: I want answers. Babe, I thought that we had a real bond. I thought that we had connected, because we've both had to fight so hard to be with the ones that we love. And then we've been shunted aside when our love became disposable. We were betrayed once we opened our hearts.

Babe: Let me just see my son.

Janet: Your son -- you said that he could be our son and that you were going to be my daughter. You gave me hope. Babe, you gave me hope that we would have our very own family. Do you know how awful it is to give somebody hope and then just pull it out from under them? That's cruel.

Babe: Yes, I know. I know you let me walk through that door with my son only to drag us right back in here. And now, I am ten feet away from my child, and you won't even let me hold him.

Janet: Then you feel my pain.

Babe: Yes, I have a clue.

Janet: But what you did was worse, because you hurt me on purpose.

Babe: And what? What, did you kidnap me and Little Adam on accident?

Janet: You left me no choice.

Babe: Because of me? You took my son from his home because of me?

Janet: You wouldn't have come with me otherwise -- would you?

Babe: And that makes sense how? You cannot just lock people up, because you get the itch, Janet!

Janet: People do it to me repeatedly.

Babe: Because you kidnap people, and you knock them over the head with crowbars.

Janet: You just knocked me over the head with a leg of lamb!

Babe: Yeah, but I'm not crazy like you!

Janet: What did you just say to me? You -- you're just like Trevor. "Janet, you need help.” And you're wrong. You're all wrong! And you're hurtful and you're mean and -- he got what was coming to him, and you are going to get what's coming to you!

Tad: The idea that she could die -- that's all that ever went through my head back then. The fact that the pregnancy might kill her. And that J.R. and Jamie and I would have to lose her all over again. And this time, for good.

David: Dixie did not die because she was pregnant.

Tad: She died because she left. You're to blame for that. And my boys and I lost her all the same. And that never goes away, never changes. Every day, we wake up, we deal with that loss.

David: Well, guess what. Every day, I feel the same exact thing.

Tad: You think I'm going to stand here and grieve with you about Dixie’s death, you're out of your mind. You take your pain and suck it up.

David: Don't waste your time searching Janet's infamous well. I already searched it. That head case has Babe and Little Adam elsewhere.

Babe: My son is in there, and he needs me. Please give me the key.

Janet: You're clearly in no condition to see him -- on a rampage, bashing people in the head.

Babe: I'm his mother.

Janet: Giving birth doesn't make you a mother. I had a terrible mother.

Babe: Not like you.

Janet: No, I'm a loving mother. Loving and supportive. I'm wonderful. Everyone in the world should have a mother like me. It would be such a better place.

Babe: So that's what a good mother does? Keeps another mother from her child? Blocks the way? Makes threats?

Janet: If she's been bashed in the head and verbally abused.

Babe: Oh. So another mother rips a little boy from his mother's arms. You've done it to him before, and you're doing it again.

Janet: He's fine. Not a peep. Just a sweet, little boy.

Babe: You think that this doesn't affect him, because he's so young, Janet? You knew that your mother loved Natalie more than you, didn't you? No matter how young you were. It hurt, didn't it? If I don't go to him, you don't think he'll feel it? You think that you're punishing me, but in reality, you're punishing him. Is that the kind of loving mother you are?

Krystal: I played you, Adam. Crow Hollow. "I do." The moonshine. All of it.

Adam: I was there, you know. I -- you matched me drink for drink. And I was so drunk, I couldn't see straight.

Krystal: Yeah, yeah, yeah, you were drunk. I was a mother. That's what I am. That's who I am. Babe's mama. That's why I married you, that's why I slept with you, that's why I moved into this house. To help Babe get one step closer to J.R. and her son.

Krystal: So you still want to hold my hand and make it better, Adam? Hmm? No? No, I didn't think so. And that's fine with me. Because as soon as Babe and that boy are home, I'm out. No marriage, no Mrs., and if you so much as blink at me or Babe -- if J.R. plays any mind games or court games or tries to stand between Babe and Little Adam for even a second --

Adam: All this time --

Krystal: If you or J.R. come near Babe, I will have J.R. locked up for kidnapping and attempted murder.

Adam: I won't let you do it.

Krystal: You think you have a choice? Chief Frye would pay for me to give him a reason to lock up J.R., and I'll hand it over to that man for free. So you go ahead, Adam. You do what you do best. You threaten me, you bribe judges, you yell and you scream.

Adam: This has nothing to do with J.R. or -- or the police. I won't let you leave this marriage.

Krystal: Why, so you can think of new ways to torture me?

Adam: No. I won't let you leave, because I love you.

Amanda: Oh, my God.

Jamie: What is it?

Amanda: Fish -- fishing. Mom -- we've got to go.

J.R.: No, you got to start making some sense first.

Amanda: My dad has a fishing cabin.

Janet: You think I would hurt that little boy?

Babe: I don't think you want to. Which is why you're going to let me go to him -- now. Because you want to be a good example to moms like me.

Janet: Watch and learn, Babe. Learn from a master. I am a loving, wonderful mother. And you are not. You are deceitful and vicious. And I will keep you away from that child. And I will make sure that you are never exposed to him again.

Babe: But I'm his mother.

Janet: Not anymore. I am Little Adam’s mother now.

Tad: Well, Dix, I'm at the end of my rope. For the first time in his miserable life, Hayward told the truth. If only you could give me a hint, some kind of sign. Never works that way, does it? If you were here -- oh, God, if only you were here. You'd know what to do. You'd never give up. You'd turn over heaven and earth trying to find J.R.’s little boy, bring him home. Oh, God, how great would that be? If you were here, and we were together again -- this one's bad, Dix. No clues, no leads, no proof that little boy is even alive. J.R.’s a mess. He's off the rails. Convinced he's going to lose someone all over again. Just like he lost you. Like we all did. What am I going to do?

Dixie: Wait -- just --

Zach: You want to go back?

Dixie: No, I just have to catch my breath, ok? There's a well over there somewhere. It's where Janet shoved her sister in. It's got to be around here.

Zach: What's that? It's a light.

[The light comes from Tad, who's sitting alone in the woods.]

Zach: Someone got to the well before us.

Dixie: It's probably Janet. Come on, we got to go get to her. What if she takes off?

Zach: No, I'll go.

Dixie: No.

Zach: Shh. You're going to stay here. I'll be right back.

Dixie: And you're going to scare her off. No way, big foot, I'm going.

Tad: God, Dixie, if only you were here.

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

Tad: Anyone there?

Dixie (to Zach): Just not yet.

Adam (to Krystal): I think you love me, too. Ooh!

[Adam reels backward when Krystal hauls off and slaps him.]

Jamie (to David): Have you even tested this thing?

David (to Jamie): No, I've been waiting for that special someone.

Jamie (to Amanda): Whatever's in this needle might kill you.

Babe (to Janet): You want psycho, let's get psycho!
