Babe: This room -- it looks more like a hotel room than a hospital.
J.R.: Nothing but the best for my bride of the past, bride of the future. Little Aís next door. Winifredís putting him to bed.
Babe: You didn't have to do all this for me.
J.R.: Are you kidding me? The VIP suite is just the beginning. You see this remote? It actually controls the stereo and the TV and the lights and whatever else you need. And just as I promised, a late-night dinner is coming. None of that crummy hospital food. I hired a chef.
Babe: This is awesome, really, J.R., but I'll probably be discharged tomorrow.
J.R.: Well, then we'll just have to have a fabulous one-nighter.
Babe: Sounds much more rowdy than reality.
J.R.: And when you're ready, I want to start planning for our wedding.
Babe: I'm ready now.
J.R.: Well, fine by me. The sooner, the better. The sooner we start living our lives. Have you given any idea to what kind of wedding you'd like? An outdoor, sunset? What?
Babe: What I want, you won't give me.
Erin: Aren't you going to take me to your bedroom?
Aidan: How do you really want me to answer that?
Erin: I want you to say yes. I want you to make love to me.
Dixie: Where's Zach?
Gwen: He'll be back. You know, it's a good sign your fever's broken, but you still need to rest. Can I get you anything?
Dixie: Just Zach.
Gwen: He went to bring back that man you were asking for -- Tad.
Dixie: Oh, no.
Tad: What the hell do you want, Slater?
Zach: I need to talk to you.
Tad: You need to talk to me? Well, I got a better idea. Why don't you fire me off an e-mail, ok?
Zach: Someone needs to see you.
Kendall: Make love to me. Dr. Madden said I can do it. He said I can do it whenever I'm ready. And I'm ready now.
Ryan: No. No, no, no, no. No, please, please -- honestly, we can't do this. We can't.
Kendall: No, who says, who says, who says?
Ryan: Look -- look, if this was -- if this was about me -- if this was about us, then believe me, I would take you right here, right now.
Kendall: No, no, I want you. I want this, Ryan. I can't remember the last time I wanted something this much. I kissed you this time, Ryan. I want you. I do.
Ryan: No, you see -- you see, the thing is, I don't think that you do.
Kendall: What? Are you kidding me? What? I mean, are you playing a game with me here, Ryan? What, are you saying you don't want me? Because I know your kiss says something different. Very, very different.
Ryan: You're making this very hard. You're making this very, very hard.
Kendall: Oh, really? Good, good. Then shut up and kiss me.
Ryan: No, no. No. The very last thing that I want is you to wake up in the morning hating me and hating yourself. And if we do this right here, right now, that's exactly what's going to happen.
J.R.: Plan away.
Babe: What I want -- it isn't in these magazines. What I want -- I want you to be this man that you are right now always. I want us to feel this way about each other always.
J.R.: You'll be loved more than you ever imagined.
Babe: Yeah, until something else makes you doubt, and then you change your mind.
J.R.: Are you afraid that I might turn back into that guy I was before you were rescued?
Babe: I'm afraid that we're both going to go back to who we were. It's kind of hard to change two years of behavior.
J.R.: And I'm looking at you right now, and I'm telling you that that's not going to happen.
Babe: It's what we want, and it's what we hope will happen now. Just like when we met on the pier in San Diego. It's what we hope for. But then, life got in the way, and there was family and mistakes and fear. J.R., when we eloped, I stood in front of you, and I burst into tears.
J.R.: You cried at both of our weddings. Isn't that what brides do?
Babe: Yeah, but that's not what I was crying about. I was crying, because I kept something from you, something that I should have told you.
J.R.: That you were still married to Paul Cramer.
Babe: I never should have lied to you. I regret that lie to this day, and every lie since.
J.R.: It's past. It's all over.
Babe: So, what, all of the sudden, it's just ok that I was married to another man, and I never told you?
J.R.: I've done worse. When we got married again, I had my own secrets. I said that vow just so I could take our child from you.
Babe: A little girl who wasn't even ours. Well, let's not match lie for lie. I told you that our son was dead, and I took him away from you. I win the unforgivable game, and I almost did something unforgivable again.
J.R.: What did you almost do? I love you, Babe. All of you. There's nothing that you can say to scare me away.
Babe: You don't know that.
Erin: Oh, oh. I'm really thirsty. You -- how about a drink, yeah?
Aidan: How about you come back --
Erin: Um -- I'm not really sure what I'm in the mood for, you know? Maybe -- maybe I'm hungry. Are you hungry? Like -- like -- what about something like salty chips? Sandwich chips, huh? Hmm? Want something?
Aidan: I'll have whatever you're having.
Erin: Oh. Well, what kind of soda do I want, though, you know? I mean, what kind? Do I really, really need caffeine right now?
Aidan: I'd say you got plenty of energy.
Erin: Maybe I'll just have juice. Yeah, like, juice, and -- and -- and seltzer, like a spritzer. Do you want a spritzer? No. No, no, no. Probably way too girlie for you, huh? Well, what goes better with chips? I don't know. Um -- maybe I don't even want chips. Maybe -- yes, maybe I want cookies! Yes, chocolate chip cookies. Or chips and salsa. Maybe I want a sandwich. Oh, my God -- do you have any ham? Oh, my -- what am I doing? I am -- I am standing here with a completely gorgeous man, and I'm talking about chips. Why can't I just make up my mind? I -- I don't know why I'm doing this. You must think I'm completely crazy.
Aidan: No, I don't think you're crazy. I think you're scared.
Kendall: Ryan, how many times do I have to tell you? I will not regret sleeping with you.
Ryan: Just don't. Just, please -- please, don't -- don't do this. Don't.
Kendall: Come on, come -- it's been a long time for both of us. I know it has, Ryan. It has.
Ryan: That's not the point. It really isn't. It's not --
Kendall: Well, then why can't this just be one of the perks? You can't say it won't be good. It'll be better than good. Come on, Ryan, when we used to make love, it was --
Ryan: It was incredible, I know. I know. I'm not denying that.
Kendall: Then -- then don't deny this. No what ifs, no games, no pressure. You can't even think about how we used to be without smiling.
Ryan: But that's what you want. You want to just go back in time.
Kendall: Yeah, when you and I were good to each other, you bet I do. Life was easier, we were easier. I was happy, Ryan. I was happy.
Ryan: And you want to forget what's happening now.
Kendall: I don't want to think. I don't want to talk. I just want to act. I want to act. Come on.
Ryan: And you want to forget about Zach.
Zach: You have to come with me. Alone.
Tad: The hell I do. So who wants to see me?
Di: Is there a problem?
Zach: No, sorry to have disturbed you. Let's go, Tad, come on.
Tad: No. Like I said, you got to say something to me, you can say it in front of Di.
Di: What's the big emergency, Zach?
Zach: This doesn't concern you, Di.
Tad: I think it does. I'd like a witness on this. So who's looking for me?
Zach: All right. I'm --
Zach: Excuse me.
Dixie: Please tell me I caught you in time.
Zach: Are you all right?
Dixie: Did you say anything to Tad about me?
Zach: Not yet.
Dixie: Please -- please, if you see him -- if you're with him, don't say anything. Please don't tell him that I'm here.
Zach: Are you sure?
Dixie: I'm sure.
Zach: Got it.
Tad: You know, why don't you handle your personal calls on your own time? So what the hell's going on? Just spit it out. Somebody wants to see me? Who is it?
Zach: Not important. Sorry to have bothered you.
Tad: Well, what -- what is this? Some kind of bizarre game?
Zach: Not a game, a misunderstanding, Tad.
Tad: Yeah, I'll say. You stop by in the middle of the night, say somebody's desperate to see me, and then all of the sudden, you change your mind.
Di: Is somebody in trouble?
Zach: It was a mistake. I'm sorry.
Tad: You're hiding something. Just come out with it.
Di: Zach, I mean, you made it sound serious. Just say it.
Zach: I'm glad I ran into you. We got some business to discuss, don't we?
Tad: No, you have to discuss business with me. You leave her out of it.
Zach: You've made some new friends. Friends that wanted me found out.
Di: Ryan wanted to know the truth about the blackout. I helped.
Tad: And you can blame me for that, not her.
Zach: You found some old friends. Like Marty, my ex-manager.
Tad: You mean the manager who can handle blacking out an entire city?
Di: Why don't you just go ahead and fire me and get it over with?
Zach: I have no intention of firing you. You wanted to get at the truth, and that's what you did, so I will see you bright and early tomorrow at the casino. Good night.
Di: What was with him?
Tad: I don't know, and I don't care.
Di: What just made him -- I don't know -- change his mind all of the sudden?
Tad: Well, like I said, I don't know, and I don't care. Personally, I'd like to get back to my bowling lesson, working on my technique. What do you say?
Di: You -- you don't know who might walk in that door some night.
Tad: Di, enough about Zach.
Di: No, I mean, when you heard the knock -- I mean, it's late at night. Did you think for -- I mean, just for a second that it could be Dixie?
Erin: I'm a 26-year-old virgin. Who -- who is a virgin at 26? I don't want to be one anymore. I want to make love to you, and I can't. I'm afraid I'm just going to mess it all up.
Aidan: You're not ready. That's cool with me.
Erin: No, I am ready. Sort of.
Aidan: Well, then we'll wait.
Erin: That is easy for you to say, because you've done it before. But I have been waiting way too long. I'm scared, you're right. I'm scared, ok?
Aidan: Listen, you are a strong, beautiful woman. Ok? Why don't we play a game of pinball, huh?
Erin: Oh. You want to play pinball? You want to play pinball right now?
Aidan: Yeah. You're the wizard.
Erin: Wizard-ess -- wizardess, actually.
Aidan: Sorry, I get my masculines mixed up with my feminines.
Aidan: Let's play.
Babe: I want you to trust me.
J.R.: I do.
Babe: And I want to believe you, and I want to trust you back. No more lies, no more unforgivable things between us.
J.R.: I couldn't agree more. Anything that almost happened doesn't matter.
Babe: Why is it so hard for us?
J.R.: You know, I've been trying to think about the same thing. I just can't figure it out. I think what it is, is that when people fall in love, they trust each other right at that moment. I definitely fell in love with you long before I ever trusted you. When I fell for you, I fell hard. I fell so hard, I was scared. I mean, took one look in those eyes, and it was all over for me.
Babe: For me, too.
J.R.: But I'm not afraid of the way I feel anymore, Babe. I'll tell you that I love you 1,000 times.
Babe: I love you, too.
J.R.: And that's why I signed this. It's just one of many wedding gifts.
Babe: Another prenup?
J.R.: Don't freak out. It's -- it's your prenup. The original one was blown up in the explosion. I had another drawn up. Check it out, look it over. Make sure that I didn't leave anything out.
Babe: Says that we both get joint custody of Little Adam if we ever do split up.
J.R.: You ask and you receive. I've already signed it. Have your lawyers look it over, so they can file it.
Babe: I don't think I can do that.
Kendall: You know, you can be such a jerk sometimes.
Ryan: Because I won't sleep with you?
Kendall: No. No, not that. Because you're right. You know me way too well.
Ryan: I know you too well for your own good.
Kendall: We could be in bed together right now, and I would not be back thinking about Zach. I mean, if you were in my place, wouldn't you want a little slice of before? Is that so bad?
Ryan: You think that I don't want to go back myself sometimes?
Kendall: We both lost people that we've loved. We both lost faith in the whole concept of love. So what's wrong with friends comforting each other?
Ryan: Kendall, we're too complicated for friends with benefits. You know that.
Kendall: I don't care who -- so what? Who cares if I wake up in the morning and feel a little empty or guilty? It's a hell of a lot better than how I feel right now. And -- and maybe you can take away the pain for one night. Since -- since I lost Zach, everything hurts. You took Zach away from me, so why don't you just give me something back? Give me something back. You owe me, Ryan. I can't -- I can't deal with this. I don't want to be here right now, because Zach is everywhere. And I don't want to feel this way. I don't want to feel betrayed. I can't -- I can't shake it. I can't shake Zach. And I don't know what to do. I don't know how to forget. I need help.
Ryan: Well, I want to help. I will. I will help.
Kendall: I don't know if you can. I want to hate him, Ryan. I want to hate Zach with everything that I have. But he still has this hold on me. How do you let go of someone who you thought was the love of your life?
Ryan: I'm not sure that you can.
Kendall: Wrong answer.
Zach: You look better.
Dixie: Does he know? I mean, does he suspect?
Zach: I didn't say anything.
Dixie: Thank you. I'm -- I'm so sorry I -- I sent you off like that. I -- I don't know what I've been saying.
Zach: It's all right.
Dixie: Telling Tad would just make things worse. It's not right. I brought this on myself.
Tad: Why on earth would you bring up Dixie in the middle of nowhere?
Di: I -- I don't know. I've been thinking about her a lot all throughout Little Adamís kidnapping, and what Janet said about her being alive --
Tad: Who cares -- who gives a damn about what Janet said? It had nothing to do with you and me.
Di: And Dixie would have been such a great comfort to J.R. when he was missing his family.
Tad: You were a comfort to J.R. Di, look at me. He's forgiven you. He thinks of you as part of his family. We all do. You are family. You earned that right when you told the truth.
Di: Yeah, well, my lie did a lot of damage.
Tad: Who in town can say anything different? Look at me. My own son had to forgive me, too.
Di: No, that's not the same.
Tad: You're right, it wasn't. I didn't have the whole town piling on top of my shoulders. Jamie, J.R., Adam, Palmer. They all piled on top of you. And you still stuck it out.
Di: Yeah. What else was I supposed to do? I didn't have an excuse for what I had done.
Tad: You can't stand the idea of being here with me, you know that? You're doing it again. You're looking at the dark side of everything. And there's so much to be thankful for, especially now. Look, do you remember the night you came to my house and you made me a deal that if I made love with you, you would leave town?
Tad: And you knew how I felt about you. Well, I hope the offer's still good. And I don't want you to go. I want you to stay.
Di: I love you. I love you so much. I've wanted this for so long. But you know, now -- now that it's here, I can't -- I can't. I don't know if I should.
Tad: Why, because of Dixie?
Di: Yes, because of Dixie.
Dixie: You're not going to say anything?
Zach: I'm -- I'm happy you're feeling better. How about that?
Dixie: I'm not sure I understand. You save my life, you help me look for my son, take care of me. The whole time, you don't say anything, you don't ask anything.
Zach: I'm not in a position to ask you anything. But if you want to confess, you go ahead.
Ryan: It's ok. Whatever you got at me, I can handle. Come here. Ah.
Kendall: Uh --
Ryan: Is that good?
Kendall: Yeah. So, you weren't freaked out by my whole throwing-myself-at-you routine?
Ryan: Nope. Actually I've seen it before.
Ryan: Remember, I am here for as long as you need me.
Kendall: Well, that's good to hear.
Kendall: Oh, no, no, no, no, you can keep rubbing. Come on.
Kendall: Ready. Yeah.
Ryan: So we've been --
Ryan: I mean, we've been a couple, we've been just friends, and we have been enemies. I think we've pretty much done it all, huh?
Kendall: Yeah, we have pretty much had some not-so-good moments, that's for sure.
Ryan: We've had some wonderful moments. I mean, even when we go at it, we still have that connection, always will.
Kendall: Are you being nice to me, because you want me to sign as the co-parent?
Kendall: Like some sort of new dysfunctional family?
Ryan: No, no, no, I'm not. I'm just laying it out there, telling you how it is, no pressure and no strings.
Kendall: Uh, patience. Is that something you'd like our kid to inherit?
Ryan: Not going to get it from you, that's for sure.
Kendall: Ok. Well, you know, I hope to God he gets your directness. Not an ounce of BS with you.
Ryan: And I still hope he gets your beautiful eyes.
Kendall: My eyes? No, I have girlie eyes. They would look silly on him.
Ryan: If our son gets your eyes, the girls will be dropping at his feet.
Zach: Who am I to judge your motives for staying away from your family?
Dixie: You've been very good to me. You've been very kind. I'm not going to unload my problems on you. I -- you don't need it. Maybe you could just tell me when you saw Tad. Was he alone? He wasn't, was he?
Dixie: He was with -- he was with Di.
Tad: I loved Dixie with all my heart. And I'm never going to forget her, but I have had to accept the fact that she is gone.
Di: Miracles can happen.
Tad: No, no. Miracles like that don't happen, because if they did, they would've happened by now. Dixie's dead. If she was alive, she would've come back by now.
Dixie: You don't have to say anything. I know about Tad and Di.
Zach: You're all right with it?
Dixie: She's in love with him. She stole my life and fell in love with him.
Zach: How about you? You still love him?
Dixie: Di is in love with him, and she thinks she should have him. And I can't say that I blame her. She believes I've turned my back on -- on him and -- on him and J.R. and everything that I once had here.
Zach: Hmm. What do you believe?
Dixie: Well, I don't really have a choice, do I?
Tad: Dixie is gone. I've had to accept that. I want to move on, and I want to move on with you.
Di: You know, you deserve somebody better than me.
Tad: Why, because you're not a saint?
Di: Yeah. Far from it.
Tad: Well, you know what? We're not so different, you and me. And now it's just the two of us. I want you. Want me. Want me.
Babe: A prenup implies that a divorce is going to happen. I refuse to believe it.
J.R.: But that paper could've protected you.
Babe: J.R., if you wanted to get me, there's no paper in the world that could protect me.
J.R.: Well, that's certainly not true now.
Babe: You promised that I didn't need protecting, and I promised to trust you.
J.R.: And I won't break that trust, I swear.
Babe: I don't want to go into this marriage anticipating that it's going to fail again. I want to believe in us. I want to believe that we're going to be together until death do us part.
J.R.: There's nothing that I want more.
Babe: And I want to give you everything that you've given me -- complete faith, trust.
J.R.: And I will give you that faith every single day.
Babe: You look like you did that night on the pier, the night that we met. I was so lost when you first saw me. And then you touched me and all of a sudden I wasn't lost anymore.
J.R.: I was lost, too. But I'm not lost anymore.
Singer: Softly like a whisper hold me in your arms. Everything fades but you and me and you know I'd cross the stars for your love, and I think you would go that far but there's nowhere else I'd rather be right now than where you are
Dixie: I just don't know if I can do it.
Zach: Do what?
Dixie: Keep staying away. J.R. and Jamie and my grandson and Tad -- they're my family. You know what it's like to ache for somebody.
Zach: I have an idea.
Dixie: I fell in love with Tad when I was 18. I know you think you can't find real love that early, but I did.
Zach: That's good.
Dixie: I mean, we -- we had our ups and downs. We got back together and broke up more times than I can even remember, but the truth is that man will always be in my heart. You know, I hate that Tad had to grieve for me. I hate that I -- I didn't tell him the truth.
Zach: Well, maybe it's not his truth to know, not now anyway.
Dixie: I'm really sorry that I gave you such a hard time about accepting forgiveness. It makes me a real hypocrite considering I can't seem to risk getting it myself.
Zach: Well, just because neither one of us listened to your advice doesn't make it bad.
Dixie: I don't know. Maybe I am a coward. Maybe I am afraid of living. Maybe Di is right. Maybe -- maybe I am a fool.
Ryan: I hope our son inherits your nerve, because you are just not afraid of anything.
Kendall: Me? Oh, believe me, I am -- I'm afraid of more than you know.
Ryan: Well, you're not afraid to put me in my place.
Kendall: Well, that's just good sense. You know -- are you choking there? You know what I do hope he inherits? I hope he inherits your sense of humor.
Ryan: I am pretty funny, aren't I?
Kendall: Not really. No, you're actually not the funny one at all. It's actually me. However, you're very brave. You're brave and --
Kendall: You're responsible.
Ryan: And what about my good looks?
Kendall: Not so much, no. It's ok -- it's ok, Ryan, because, really, not everyone's perfect, so --
Ryan: Uh-huh. Well, thanks.
Kendall: You're welcome.
Ryan: This is nice, but our son will be. I mean, come on -- look at his parents.
Kendall: Well, at least on his mother's side.
Ryan: You reading this?
Kendall: Hmm. Well, Greenlee gave it to me, but since all hell broke loose, I haven't really been able to focus on it.
Ryan: Because I have the same one. It's got some really good stuff on the -- on the first three months.
Kendall: Wouldn't know. I haven't read past the third trimester. Delivery, infants -- I got nothing.
Ryan: Really? Because I've been reading so much about the first year. It's unbelievable how -- how babies grow and learn so quickly, like in the first three months, it seems like they learn something new every week. From what I read, they go from one day lying down, just sort of like, just lying there, to the next day, looking at you, making noises, smiling, you know, eventually reaching for the -- what is it?
Kendall: I wish I could be like you. I wish that I could want our son the way you do.
Singer: I won't talk. I won't breathe. I won't move till you finally see that you belong with me. You might think I don't look, but deep inside the corner of my mind I'm attached to you. Hmm I'm weak it's true 'cause I'm afraid to know the answer. Do you want me, too? 'Cause my heart keeps falling faster. I've waited all my life to cross this line to the only thing that's true, so I will not hide. It's time to try anything to be with you all my life. I've waited this is true. You don't know what you do every time you walk into the room. I'm afraid to move. I'm weak it's true. I'm just scared to know the ending. Do you see me, too? Do you even know you met me? I've waited all my life to cross this line to the only thing that's true, so I will not hide. It's time to try anything to be with you all my life. I've waited this is true. I know when I go I'll be on my way to you the way that's true. I've waited all my life to cross this line to the only thing that's true
Singer: So I will not hide it's time to try anything to be with you
Dixie: Hey, it's me. I need to see you tomorrow. I know what I'm going to do.
Singer: This is true
>> On the next "All My Children" --
