Ryan: Ok. Ok. Ok, what is it? What's -- what's wrong?
Julia: I've waited so long. I've wanted it for so long, and now it's never going to happen.
Ryan: What? What's never going to happen?
Julia: I'm never going to be able to give birth. I'm never going to have a baby.
Kendall: I want another doctor.
Greg: Why? Are you unhappy with the treatment and the care that you've been getting?
Kendall: Please, just give me my records and let me give them to my new Ob-Gyn.
Greg: I can't do that.
Tad: How big is this secret?
Di: I feel like I'm playing another game of Little Adamís -- pin the tail on the donkey or --
Tad: No, no, I'm not trying to pin anything on you, ok? I'm not trying to make you feel uncomfortable. Just -- what was I supposed to think? I saw Mama throw down that stupid card, she said the word "secret," and you flinched, so I flinched right back because, let's face it, you, me, and secrets do not have a good history together. So, you know, if there's something that you feel you want to throw at me, then, you know, now is good. So just tell me, is -- is there a secret?
Tad: Oh. It's a start. Just keep talking.
Di: If I tell you, it's going to ruin everything.
J.R.: Where you going? Didn't you hear Babe?
Babe: What happened to you? The wedding was hours ago.
David: I know, darling. I'm sorry I missed it, I really am. Look, but I'll -- I'll explain later, ok?
J.R.: Way to be a dad.
David: Look, I have to catch her!
J.R.: Who's "her"?
David: Let me go.
J.R.: What is the rush? And why is "she" more important than your own daughter?
David: J.R., there is something you need to know.
J.R.: Why don't you can the BS? Your daughter just got married. She wanted you to do one thing -- be a dad for one day, show her that you care, walk her down the aisle -- but you bagged that. I mean, what could be more important than your own daughter's wedding?
David: Why don't you shut up and hear me out before you ream me?
J.R.: "I'm sorry that I didn't make it"? "Congratulations"?
Babe: Ok, ok, cool it, both of you, please.
J.R.: Why don't you just say what you got to say and get the hell out of here?
David: Boy, you really lucked out, didn't you? You've been stomping on Babe's heart for years, and somehow you convinced her to give you another shot.
Babe: J.R. didn't "convince" me, David. I love him, and he loves me just as much.
David: Really? Do you love Babe as much as I loved your mother?
J.R.: What did I tell you about talking about my mother?
Babe: Ok, ok. Please, it is our wedding night. Ok, look, you go inside, and I'm going to talk to him for a second and I'll be right in.
J.R.: All right, I'll be waiting.
Babe: You missed the wedding, you slam on J.R., and you say that stuff about Dixie -- what is wrong with you?
David: Look, I'm sorry I missed your big day. I am.
Babe: You want to make it up to me? Why don't you just tell me what you were going to say to J.R.? Talk to me. Tell me the big, bad secret.
Tad: Ok, all right, take it easy for a second, all right? Now, sit down, right there. Now, so far we're dealing with a secret that can ruin everything. All right, I doubt it, but could you be a little more specific? I mean, are we talking about ruining my digestion, my day, or my life?
Di: It'll ruin what -- what this whole day has been about -- love and -- and forgiveness and --
Tad: It can't. It's impossible. Look, you got to trust me on this one. If Adam Chandler couldn't ruin today --
Tad: Nothing can. So whatever it is, you got to be brave. Just -- just let it out.
Di: Oh, today was -- it was the perfect wedding, you know? I mean, a few months ago Babe and J.R. were completely at each other's throats. Today they were absolutely glowing, they were wrapped in love.
Tad: "Wrapped in love."
Di: What -- ok, it's cheesy --
Tad: No, no, it's not. No, not for me.
Di: But -- I mean, but Adam and Krystal -- they have been at -- at full-blown war. They have seen the bad, the ugly of each other, enough to scare anybody away, and they committed to forever.
Tad: Yeah -- heaven help them both.
Di: Well, I mean, seeing them so happy, being able to share in that -- I don't -- I don't know if bliss like that can last forever. But I just don't want my little piece of it to be taken away.
Tad: Nothing's taken it away so far, has it?
Di: Something has -- for me.
Tad: And now we're getting around the "secret" part, aren't we?
Di: I don't know how -- how to tell you -- what to say --
Tad: Please, just say it. Just -- just tell me, ok? I promise you I can take it. I mean, whatever it is cannot top what you've already shared with me. Right?
Di: Ok. The secret is --
Di: I want -- I want to marry you.
Julia: All this time I had no idea -- the fibroids. Lots of women have them, and they can still have children, but not me. The chances of my having a child are completely nil.
Ryan: I'm sorry.
Julia: This has just never occurred to me, ever. I've been pregnant before. I -- I just always assumed that it could happen again. It's just, why am I so stupid?
Ryan: Hey -- now, come on. It wasn't your fault. Try not to beat yourself up.
Julia: Oh, well, it's better than wallowing in self-pity. I avoided checkups for years. How could I tell a doctor about my family medical history when my family didn't exist?
Ryan: You were in witness protection. It's not like you had a lot of choices.
Julia: I still -- I should've just gone. I should've just gone. They could've treated the condition, maybe even fixed it. All I had to do was be responsible, and now it's too late.
Ryan: Hang on, all right? You can't have a child of your own, but adoption is -- is still an option.
Julia: You know, when I -- when I accepted that adopting your child wasn't going to happen, I just threw myself into the idea of -- of having my own and -- I imagined everything, from the moment of conception through every labor pain, the tiny life growing inside of me. I just -- I wanted to feel every bit of it, right up until the -- the moment that my baby breathed its first breath. No epidural, no anesthesia, just -- even make the pain part of the miracle.
Ryan: I understand. Ok. Ok.
Kendall: There's nothing to talk about. I've made up my mind, I want a new doctor.
Greg: Did you make up your mind or did Ryan?
Kendall: Ryan does not think for me. This is my decision. I came here for a routine checkup, and all of the sudden I'm shaking hands with people who want my baby.
Greg: I explained. I thought you understood. I apologized and you accepted it.
Kendall: Well, I had time to think about it.
Greg: You and I have been in this together since the very beginning. From the night when you begged me to help you to create this child, against all personal risk, I agreed, I stood by you. When Ryan decided to reappear, I stood by you. When we were both attacked because of the insemination, I was still there. When Greenlee rejected you, I stood by you 100%.
Kendall: Great. Ok. So you're going to guilt me into staying?
Greg: Not at all. I don't regret anything that I've done, and I don't expect anything in return.
Kendall: Except my undying gratitude and mindless agreement about whatever you want to do with my baby?
Greg: Only you can decide your baby's future. I just want you to know I have been deeply invested in him since the night he was conceived.
Kendall: Why all of a sudden this -- this investment in my child?
Greg: I commit to every child that I help create. I care about them all. In a way, they are all my children.
Ryan: Is your doctor positive about your condition? Is there no doubt?
Julia: This Dr. Madden -- yes, he's positive.
Julia: If he says that I can't have children --
Ryan: You cannot trust him. Aah-aa!
Greg: The Rivingtons -- I should've handled that differently. I just wanted to offer you a solution. I didn't mean to upset you. I know how Ryan feels about the adoption -- he's against it -- but how does he feel about raising the child on his own?
Kendall: He wants the whole family thing. Mommy makes three.
Greg: He wants you as the mother? So he goes from being madly in love with Greenlee to setting up a family with you?
Kendall: It's not like it's a love connection. We're not getting back together.
Greg: Oh, I see, it's -- oh, it's a convenience?
Kendall: No. I mean, maybe, I guess. I don't know.
Greg: So you haven't agreed to it?
Kendall: No, we haven't agreed to anything. And -- and maybe it's none of your business.
Greg: Well, I'm just trying to understand. Ryan is against the adoption. We don't know whether he wants to raise the child on his own. You haven't committed to raising the child together. So, please, just help me try to understand. What does Ryan want?
Ryan: No matter what you've heard or what you think, I'm -- I'm telling you, you can't trust Madden.
Julia: He is one of the best in the world. He's another Dr. Schweitzer.
Ryan: So you just believe everything that he says because he's the great Dr. Madden?
Julia: I'm a nurse. I understand the condition, I know the procedures. Fibroids -- particularly as invasive as mine -- can cause infertility. Dr. Madden's not a quack. I'm just unlucky.
Ryan: Wow. Just one exam, huh? I mean, a citywide blackout and no eggs to harvest didn't stop him with Kendall. You'd think that he could've come up with something to suggest.
Julia: This is an entirely different situation. There -- even if he did in vitro, there's very little possibility that I could even carry a child to term.
Ryan: Well, those are exactly the kind of odds that a guy like this loves. I mean, why isn't he all over this? He's all about miracle babies. Why not this time?
Julia: He could've put me through that. He could've tried procedure after procedure, tried and untried. He could've jacked my hopes up for nothing. But if a man of his expertise won't take on the odds, then I might as well just stop. He's probably just saved me a lot more pain.
Ryan: Or maybe he's not thinking about you at all.
David: There's nothing to tell you -- to you or J.R. -- but, look, can we please talk later?
Babe: No. Now. You threw J.R.ís dead mother in his face.
David: Babe, I never meant to hurt you. I am really sorry. And you know that I wouldn't have missed this day for anything in the world.
Babe: Something had your attention, I get it. What was it? Why weren't you here?
David: It was an emergency. Something came up and I couldn't get out of it. Look, please, I really have to get going.
Babe: Ok, look, it sounds very serious, I get that. Is that the "her" that you were after?
David: Babe, I want you to be happy. Not just blow-the-candles-out happy. I mean, really happy for life, with Little Adam -- even with J.R. if that's what you really want.
Babe: It is.
David: But if it ever goes bad, if you ever need me, I want you to promise me that you will call me, ok? I will come back immediately.
Babe: No -- "come back"? Where are you going?
David: It's not important.
Babe: Like heck it isn't. David --
David: It's personal.
Babe: Just too personal to tell your own daughter?
David: You have my cell phone. You can always reach me if you need to. Promise me that you'll call, ok? Even if it's just so that I can hear your voice.
Babe: I promise, but I -- I just wish you would tell me what's going on.
David: I love you very, very much.
David: J.R.ís waiting for you.
David: All right, Dixie. Where did you go?
Ryan: Madden has been lobbying Kendall to put our son up for adoption. Even found a perfect couple and shoved the couple in her face. Now, luckily, I was there and I told him to back off.
Julia: So Kendallís leaning towards adoption now?
Ryan: No, no, she hasn't -- she hasn't decided anything.
Julia: I don't get it. He's offering your child up for adoption? What does Madden get out of it?
Ryan: I don't know. I don't know. I just know that he's working Kendall, and she's confused, and he's playing it and he's almost got her convinced.
Julia: But Kendall knows how you feel -- you want to raise him.
Ryan: Yeah. But all I want right now is I want Kendall just to relax. I want her to chill so she can think clearly, which means I want her as far away from Madden as possible. Now, I told her I want her to find another doctor and, I mean, she agreed. She agreed to dump Madden.
Kendall: Ryan wants what's best for this baby just as much as I do.
Greg: When Ryan found out that Greenlee was pregnant, he played dead because he couldn't handle it. When he finally showed up in time to discover that you were carrying his child, he was enraged. Now you tell me he wants what's best for the child.
Kendall: Ryan could've walked away, but he didn't. He asked for parental rights because he wants to be totally part of this.
Greg: Considering his history --
Kendall: No, no, don't even use his past against him. Ryan's just trying to do the right thing.
Greg: Ryan doesn't want the baby put up for adoption. Neither you nor Ryan will commit to raising the child. Does Ryan have a solution?
Kendall: No, he doesn't. Neither of us do, but that doesn't mean that we don't care. I mean, Ryan is already in love with this child -- who he's going to be, what he's going to be like. I wish that I could feel that connected. What?
Greg: No. I've offered you enough of my opinions.
Kendall: No, you're the expert here. I need all the advice I can get.
Greg: I'm glad Ryan's not signing on as a single parent. His role model was -- how shall we say -- lacking.
Kendall: Well, a lot of people come from not-so-great homes and they make great parents.
Greg: From what I understand, Ryan didn't receive much love as a child. You tell me that he loves this child. There's an enormous difference between loving a child and needing to possess that child. Do you think he understands that?
Babe: I can't believe you did all this.
J.R.: You've given me love, our son, and a chance to make it right.
J.R.: From this moment forward -- this month, this week, this day, every second -- I'm going to try to give that back to you. I know I'll never be able to come close to what you've given me. But I do know that I'll love you more than I could ever love anyone else.
David: Damn it, Dixie. Where the hell did you go?
David's voice: I lost you once. I will not lose you again.
Di: I -- I got swept away. I got swept away in the -- the whole wedding thing, the wedding fantasy, you and me and -- and rice and -- and doves and tulips. It's crazy, I know. We shared a bed -- doesn't mean you want to share the rest of your life with me, especially after what I've done. Ok. All right, this is me going now before I make a fool -- all right, you're angry because I proposed?
Tad: No. No, I'm angry because you beat me to the punch.
Singer: I don't know what it is tonight your smile your eyes yeah I need you more every day more than words can say I want you in my life and for all my life this night will never end you'll take my hand and I'll fall in love again
Singer: Nothing short of a miracle could have brought you here to me when I'm with you heaven's all I see all I see caught up in every touch I feel the rush of this moment that we're in each time we kiss I fall in love again I can't resist I fall in love again again
Kendall: No, Ryan isn't the issue, it's you. The adoption business, the way you push. Every time I come for a checkup, will there be some new couple scoping me out to see if I'm mommy material good enough to hatch their kid?
Greg: I never intended for that meeting to put any pressure on you. I understand this is one of the biggest decisions you have to make in your life. I only wanted to make all your options available to you.
Kendall: Well, enough with the options.
Greg: I understand. I've gotten quite close to you through all of this. I know you fairly well. And I know you will make the right decision. And I also know that you know sometimes giving up a child can be as great an act of love as keeping one. Sometimes even more so. I'll get your files together. But I really hope you'll reconsider changing doctors.
Kendall: Well, you said it yourself. This -- this pregnancy is normal now. So any Ob-Gyn can handle it.
Greg: That's true. But if you do decide to leave, my door is always open to you, even if I'm not your doctor. From the very beginning, Kendall, I've only wanted what's best for you and this baby. I always have.
Ryan: Madden consistently crosses the line, he plays fast and loose with ethics. I don't know why. Maybe it's because he can. Maybe it's because he feels like he has the power. But what I do know is that I don't want Kendall anywhere near him. And honestly, I don't -- I mean, I don't want you near him, either.
Julia: Madden wouldn't lie to me about my condition.
Ryan: Just go see another doctor, please. Just -- just to be sure.
Julia: He's the best. If he says that it's next to impossible -- I mean, what's the big deal, really? I mean, it's not like I'm going to be a -- a childless old woman with too many cats. I mean, who -- who wants swollen ankles and stretch marks, anyway?
Ryan: Julia, please, get a second opinion.
Tad: I remember the day you showed up in Pine Valley. I mean, you really know how to make an entrance. It's like an avalanche of, you know, secrets and lies. The fact is I bought it all. Never thought about it for a minute. Didn't matter if it made sense. As far as I knew, I had Dixie, you know, supposedly the love of my life back. That's all that mattered. And then when the truth came out, I hated you. Well, actually, I -- I tried to hate you. I did everything I could to hate you. I couldn't. This is where you ask why. This is where I say because -- because it turns out I didn't fall for Dixie, I fell for you. The fact is, you fight harder than anybody I've ever met to set things right. And you never back away from what you want. And I was just lucky that you wanted me. You certainly went through hell for it. And I'm thankful to God that you had the patience to wait for me to come around to this point. Because for the first time in years, I love you. And I don't want to think about it, I don't want to second-guess it, I don't want to analyze it in any way. I just want to feel it. I want the whole thing. I mean, I want exactly what you want. You're leaking -- you know, you're leaking. Here, take this. I'm not kidding. I want the wedding, I want, like, a 10-tier cake with those really disgusting flowers that you can eat, and redundant wedding presents and some honeymoon in some overpriced hotel. More than anything, I just want to spend every day from now on with you, because I love you. So now I'm asking -- will you marry me?
[Knock on door]
David: Hello, nurse. I'm Dr. David Hayward from Pine Valley hospital. Mrs. Dillon is my patient. I'm here for a follow-up exam.
Nurse: There was nothing on her chart.
David: Well, I'm sure if it's all right with the head of the facility, it's ok with you. Unless, of course, you want to interrupt Dr. Nevil and discuss it with him?
Nurse: No, doctor.
David: Thank you.
David: Hello, Janet. How are you today?
Janet: Did you come to finish it off? You can. These just take the little bit of me away every time till there's going to be nothing left. No soul, no spark, no Janet.
David: You help me, and you won't have to take these. You won't even have to stay here. I'll get you out.
Every day you go to extra lengths
Janet: I'm crazy, not stupid. Why are you being so nice to me?
David: I have a daughter, too. All you were doing was trying to protect yours. I understand that. Believe me, I understand extreme. And I think we can help each other. I also want to help Dixie. Just like I want to help you. I saw her.
Janet: I told you she was alive. Did you say hi to her for me?
David: No, I really didn't get much of a chance to do that, Janet, because she took off. I need to find her.
Janet: Maybe she doesn't want to be found.
David: No, she needs me, Janet. You both do. Now, do you have any idea where she could be? How I could reach her? Anything?
Janet: I know exactly where Dixie is.
Di: You mean it? You want to marry me?
Tad: Yeah, I want to marry you. Why, did you mean it?
Di: Yeah. Did you?
Tad: Yeah. You know, we could always order take-out if you want to think about it.
Di: Come on!
Tad: Don't be always hitting me. Was that a "yes" hit, or, like, a "no way in hell" hit?
Di: Yes, yes! Yes.
Tad: Whoa. Whoa, I should --
Di: Oh --
Tad: Propose to you more often.
Di: I should -- I should tell you to pinch me, but then I'm afraid it would hurt and that would mean it's a dream, and I want this to be real, so --
Tad: Well, there's a surefire way to make -- to make sure. Did that hurt?
Di: Mm-hmm. All the way to my toes. You're -- you're so everything that I have ever wanted.
Di: Tell me -- tell me you love me again. Just -- just say you love me, just -- just for fun.
Tad: I love you just for fun.
Di: I love you, too.
Di: But -- but you should -- I mean, you should take some time to -- to think about this, to think about us, because I want you to be absolutely, positively, like, 1,000% sure that -- that you want to -- you know, you want to be with me.
Tad: You want to wait? Oh, with a whole gang of women outside that are willing to snap me up and make me their own?
Di: I'm serious, I'm serious, Tad. I mean, this is beyond -- beyond perfect, but I want to make sure that you don't have any regrets, ever.
Tad: I couldn't. There's no way. Listen, if you're going to start turning into a squirrel, we can wait. It's fine. No, seriously, we'll wait. Nothing's going to change. It's just maybe I'll love you a little more. Especially if you can fix my bowling game.
Di: I bet we can find some other things to work on.
Tad: Think so?
Tad: You're right.
Di: Take -- take all the time you want. And when you -- when you have zero -- zero doubt, then you can -- then you --
Tad: Di, I don't have any doubt --
Tad: Now, and I never will. I'm in love with you. And I want you in my life, permanently.
Jonathan: It's -- it's great to see you. It -- it's been too long. Come in.
Kendall: Oh -- ok. Is -- is Ryan here?
Jonathan: No, not yet, but -- but you can wait. It's -- oh. Here, you should sit down. Do you want some ice cream and pickles? Well, that isn't true? Pregnant women don't crave ice cream and pickles?
Kendall: Um -- no, not -- not yet.
Jonathan: Oh, ok. Well, some milk, then?
Kendall: I'm good.
Jonathan: That's so cool. And Ryan's going to be a dad. I'm going to be an uncle. And that's my nephew right there. There he is, he's right there. He's a little Lavery. Is it ok if I touch the --
Kendall: No, no! She just gives off this thing, you know,
David: Where is she? Where is Dixie?
Janet: I think that she is probably somewhere where they won't find her and they won't make her take pills that take her soul away a little piece at a time so that she forgets everything that's really important.
David: What the hell was I thinking? You're a flippin' nut job, Janet. The hell with this.
Janet: Um -- what happened to getting me out of here and not taking pills?
David: Take the damn pills, Janet. You're better off. You'll forget everything. I'll find Dixie myself.
Dixie's voice: He's finally putting his life together again. He's happy. And Tad -- you love them. You love both of them, don't you? And you'll take care of them? And J.R.ís child and Jamie and -- you'll look out for them?
Di: As much as they'll let me.
Dixie's voice: That's all I can ask.
Tad: I'm sorry, I hope you don't mind the contraband bubbly. I stole it from the party. Best part is, Adam would eventually figure it out, because he counts the bottles.
Tad: Here's to the woman that taught me all about life and love and bowling all over again. I don't think we'll need to throw salt -- or knock on wood or do anything like that. Because having you in my life is all the luck I'll ever need.
Julia: Well, I still tend to think that Dr. Madden's diagnosis is right, as much as I hate it. But I'll get a second opinion.
Ryan: Nothing wrong with covering all the bases, right?
Julia: You really hate this guy.
Ryan: As soon as Kendall sidelines Madden, we'll be able to make the right choice for our son.
Kendall: When is Ryan getting home?
Jonathan: I didn't -- I didn't mean to startle you, Kendall.
Kendall: It's ok.
Jonathan: Actually, it's not ok if I'm still scaring you. I don't blame you, though. I -- I almost killed you, and here I am jumping out trying to -- to touch your stomach. I'm sorry. And I'll do whatever it takes to make it up to you. I wasn't going to hurt you. Just that I'm -- I'm excited and -- the whole uncle thing. It's my first time, and I'm --
Kendall: Um -- it's -- it's getting late.
Jonathan: Yeah, but -- well, Ryan's going to be home soon. Hey, Kendall, if it'd be ok by you, I -- I would love to teach my new nephew how to play baseball. I -- I have a really great arm. Well, I used to. I always wanted to play Little League, but my dad -- my dad wouldn't let me. But my nephew -- him, right there -- he's going to be a star. And I could show him how to --
Kendall: That's nice. That's really -- it's nice, really nice, Jonathan, nice.
Jonathan: Or -- or playing basketball, maybe, or we could build a fort together -- camping. Him -- we could go camping. I -- Kendall -- Kendall, are you ok?
Kendall: I -- I just -- I have to go, ok? Can you just please tell Ryan that I came by, ok?
Greg: I spoke to Kendall after the meeting. Yes, she was a bit tense, understandably. It's a big decision. But, Mrs. Rivington, I think she's close to making the right decision. Just give it a little more time, and the baby will be yours.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Kendall: You're exactly who I need.
Zach: I'm all yours.
J.R.: Kendall's just going to make sure that you're ostracized, ignored. You sure you're ready for that?
Babe: You should be asking if Kendall is ready for me.
Erica: I just have the most unique show planned. You're just going to die.
