[Knock on door]

Di: It's me, Di.

Di: What are you doing, Dixie? Hmm? Why -- why are you still here? You -- you said you were going to leave after the wedding.

Dixie: I know. Things got complicated.

Di: Complicated? Well, while you've been floating around town, I'm the one that's been cleaning up your mess. Why are you still here?

Dixie: I can't tell you.

Di: Bull. I've heard that one too many times. What's keeping you here, Dixie?

Tad: Could you do me a favor? Make sure my father gets that note.

Nurse: No problem, Tad.

Tad: Appreciate it.

Erica: When's he coming?

Tad: Who?

Josh: File that?

Erica: Your brother Jeff. What's going on, Tad?

Tad: Don't look at me. I'm asking myself the same questions.

Erica: You told me that Jeff was going to leave it up to me whether or not to tell Josh the truth, and now Joe tells me that Jeff is coming back here to Pine Valley. Why? Why, Tad? Does Jeff plan to tell Josh that he's our son? And does Jeff plan to tear our lives apart?

Jonathan: You got it. You really got it.

Lily: Yeah, it took me exactly 47 minutes to find this key. I don't understand your face. Are you happy or excited?

Jonathan: Well, I'm both. This is so great. But you don't think that Kendall suspects anything, do you?

Lily: Uh-uh. She wasn't at my dad's house, she didn't see me take this key. Kendall doesn't know anything.

Jack: So Kendallís not home?

Ryan: No. How you doing, Jack?

Jack: It was a little rough, you know, but I'm better. Tell Kendall I stopped by.

Ryan: Hey, Jack? I -- I could actually use your help with something.

Jack: My help? With what?

Ryan: How to be a father.

Kendall: Checking out, I see.

Greg: Kendall. I'm glad you dropped by. Oh, my attorney dropped this off earlier. I thought you might want to look it over. You can ask me any questions. It's pretty standard for arrangements like this. I could actually walk you through it. Is there a problem?

Kendall: This is it. My consent to give away my child.

Greg: You do still want to put the baby up for adoption, don't you?

Kendall: Um -- yes. Yes, I just -- I still don't know what to do about Ryan.

Greg: Well, let's take one step at a time. What you're doing is a truly brave and wonderful thing.

Kendall: It -- it just -- it doesn't feel right to sign this without his consent first.

Greg: Before you involve Ryan in this process, you have to be comfortable with the fact that what you're doing is the right thing and that your baby will be better off. When you make peace with that, then I will keep my promise and I will help you deal with Ryan.

Ryan: I know I don't always agree with you, but your priority has always been your kids, and I have always respected that. I guess that's, you know, why I'm asking. And -- and maybe you should know that this past year has really opened my eyes and -- um -- I've really learned a lot of things about myself, a lot of things that I didn't expect. I now know that I can love a child. I know, I know that I can love my child.

Jack: Well, too bad you couldn't have figured that out before you drove yourself off a cliff and let my daughter believe she was a widow.

Ryan: I think about it every day, about how badly I screwed up, about how I lost her, how I didn't think that I was capable of loving her the way that she wanted. And now that I feel the way that I do, I guess I can't forgive myself for ever feeling differently. I can't imagine me asking her to give away our child or that she never gets pregnant, but the point is, is that you haven't forgiven me, and I don't expect you to.

Jack: I do appreciate your support with Jonathan and Lily.

Ryan: Well, I -- you know, I know that you don't want them together right now and, honestly, it's probably better for both of them at this point.

Jack: So thanks for backing me up.

Ryan: You're welcome. And you should know that Jonathan -- you know, he told me that he's honored your wishes, you know, his promise to you that he's going to stay away from Lily.

Jonathan: Kendall is going to be so surprised.

Lily: But not scared.

Jonathan: Thank you, Lily, for helping me with this. This is our secret, though, right?

Lily: Right. No one else knows. See, I'm responsible for numbers 1 through 6, and I already crossed out number 2, which was "Get the key," and you're responsible for numbers 7 through 11.

Jonathan: Well, I already did number 8.

Lily: Oh, that's great. That will save us approximately 12 minutes of preparation time.

Jonathan: I like having a secret just between us. It makes me feel like -- it makes me feel like I have a real friend.

Lily: I am your real friend. You know, at my old school, the one that my dad wants to send me back to, everyone was always nice to me, but I don't ever think I had a real friend.

Jonathan: What, they didn't share secrets with you?

Lily: No one ever talked to me the way you do. And even Reggie doesn't tell me stuff. He tells me not to worry about it, but not knowing makes me worry about it even more.

Jonathan: Well, when I was a kid, I didn't have a real friend, either. And everybody would go to each other's house after school to -- to hang out or just play outside. But I -- I could never take anybody home with me, and all the kids would tease me about it. And I couldn't tell them why -- because if I took anybody back to my house from school, then they would see that --

Lily: They'd find out your dad hit you?

Jonathan: You finished my thought for me.

Lily: Yeah, I did. Didn't you know how it was going to end?

Jonathan: Yeah, yeah, I did, but -- but you finished it without me having to tell you.

Lily: I did, didn't I?

Jonathan: You -- you know what that means? When -- when you can finish my thoughts and when I can finish yours, it means we're best friends.

Lily: Best friends? I've never had one of those.

Jack: So I take it since you're asking for parental advice, you've decided to keep this baby?

Ryan: Well, you know, Kendall hasn't exactly, but I have, yeah. I want to be a father to my son.

Jack: You've been given a second chance here, Ryan. Don't blow it.

Ryan: Just saying it out loud, it just -- it feels right.

Jack: Good for you, I say. I stopped by to see Kendall, because she and I never had the chance to clear the air after Greenlee left.

Ryan: Yeah, you kind of got caught in the middle, didn't you?

Jack: Yeah, I kind of did. But she's my daughter, too, you know? Where's her head at these days? I mean, what do you think she's going to do about this baby?

Ryan: Whew. I honestly have no idea, Jack. Last time we spoke, it didn't exactly go very well.

Jack: Not on the same page, I take it?

Ryan: Not even in the same book.

Jack: Yeah.

Ryan: I mean, I am -- I'm hoping that she wants to be part of our child's life, that she wants to raise him with me, but if she doesn't, I'll raise him alone, even -- even if I have to fight her to do it.

Kendall: How will you get Ryan to sign off on the adoption?

Greg: He's a good man. He really believes he's doing the right thing.

Kendall: And you don't?

Greg: He's grappling with some pretty serious issues. I mean, can you imagine finding out you're going to be a father, especially with his history? I feel for him, I really do. He thinks raising your child is going to be the solution, but you and I know it's only going to add to his problems.

Kendall: Yeah, I don't think Ryan's ready to be a father any more than I'm ready to be a mother.

Greg: Well, I'll help him see that. Are you ready to sign?

Kendall: I hope you're right.

Greg: Kendall, I've helped hundreds of women in your position. You have to trust me.

Kendall: Yeah, but no one knows Ryan Lavery better than I do. When he digs his heels in, he -- oh, God.

Greg: Kendall, what is it?

Kendall: Uh -- uh -- it's -- it's the baby. He just kicked the heck out of me.

Dixie: I can't tell you what's going on. It's not your story to know.

Di: Like hell it isn't. You rely on me to keep your secret, Dixie. This isn't just about you. Now, I need to understand why you are here. Is it David? I know you two have seen each other.

Dixie: David knows I'm alive, that's true.

Di: True because he caught you, because you never left, because you were waiting for him or someone, anyone, to catch you?

Dixie: That's not true. That was completely unintentional.

Di: Mm-hmm.

Dixie: Believe me, I don't want to stay here any more than you want me here.

Di: You know, David seems to think that he's got a shot of getting you back.

Dixie: Yeah, well, David has big plans.

Di: Yeah, and you're encouraging him on that train of thought? No, you know, I don't believe that for a second. David is not the reason why you're here, but why? Why are you tempting fate like this?

Dixie: I'm sorry. I can't tell you.

Di: Oh, my God. Dixie! Good Lord, stop with the secrets. You know, I need to know why you are here. Do you know how hard this is for me not knowing why I'm doing this, why you're here? I mean, do you know what it's doing to me, what you're risking for yourself?

Dixie: I know -- I am well aware of the risks, thank you.

Di: Well, do you -- do you know the risks for me for keeping your secret? I mean, it's a secret that you can't even trust me enough to tell me? I'm still your sister, Dixie. Tell me why you're doing what you're doing.

Tad: Look, for all I know, Jeff just wants to take a look at Josh and disappear again. Your guess is as good as mine.

Erica: Well, Jeff cannot come back here and ruin things for my family.

Tad: My brother has always been a standup guy. I'm sure he will discuss every option with you before he does anything that might hurt --

Erica: Oh, I plan to meet Jeff's plane. I plan to be there the minute Jeff steps foot into the airport, Tad. When -- when is he scheduled to arrive? When will this be?

Tad: I'm not sure, I don't know. Dad said something about him being delayed abroad, in Kenya.

Erica: Kenya? Are you kidding? And now he's delayed? I mean, oh, my God. How long am I going to have to wait?

Tad: Shh.

Erica: My family's future is at stake here.

Tad: I know, I know. As soon as I find out when Jeff is scheduled to arrive, I'll let you know.

Erica: I've got to make him understand what this will do to all of our worlds if he decides to tell Josh the truth. I mean, it will ruin Josh's world -- and mine and Kendall's, and Kendall certainly doesn't need any more madness in her life. And what about Bianca and little Miranda? I mean, Jeff has no idea.

Tad: I know, but I don't control my brother. In the end, you know, he's going to have to make up his own mind as to what to do.

Erica: Which is why I really need to speak to him myself. God knows that Joe will be of no help whatsoever.

Tad: Erica, I'm sorry. It's Jeff's decision to make.

Erica: Whose side are you on anyway? Are you telling me now that -- that you want me to tell Josh, too?

Tad: No. Of course not. But -- to be honest, I'm beginning to think that maybe we should.

Erica: What do you mean, we should tell Josh? I thought you understood.

Tad: I do. Look, I'm on your side, remember? I have been since the day we found out who Josh really was.

Erica: Well, then what's all this crazy talk about telling him? I mean, think of all the chaos it would cause.

Tad: I realize that. But it was one thing when Josh intended to leave Pine Valley. Now that's no longer the case. On top of that, he's got a job working in this hospital for his own grandfather.

Erica: And you can do something about that. Talk to Joe, get Josh removed from this hospital.

Tad: How do you suggest I do that? You want me to -- to sabotage Josh's medical career? You want me to drug him the way he drugged you? Look, sweetheart, I'm sorry, but the fact is every single secret my family has tried to hang on to has eventually blown up in our faces, and you know that better than anybody -- you were there. Come on, how that thing went down with Miranda and Bianca. Hell, things between Jamie and J.R. and Babe had just started to get back to normal. The fact is secrets this big have a way of finding their way out into the light.

Erica: There is no reason that anybody else needs to know this.

Tad: You are Josh's mother. Do you really think for one minute you can keep that secret forever? Sure, it'll be painful as hell if it comes out, but how much more pain is in store if it comes out months from now? Or years? What are the people who care about you going to think when they find out that you kept something like this from them? I know I would be livid if I found out somebody kept a secret like this from me.

Erica: Well, once I speak to Jeff, this won't be an issue.

Tad: You don't know that. Look, I have promised to keep your confidence, and I am going to, and I know my father will, but what about Greg Madden? He knows. Hell, he -- he started this whole thing. What happens if he decides to tell Josh?

Erica: He won't.

Tad: How can you guarantee that? Erica, I am telling you, at this point -- I'm sorry, it's Jeff's decision to make.

Erica: You have influence over that. And don't stand there and tell me that you have no sway with your brother.

Tad: I'll do what I can.

Erica: And I'll do what I can.

Josh: Ahem. I seriously hope you're not here to hound my father again.

Erica: Josh, we've said everything we need to.

Josh: Oh, I doubt that. You're always a talker, Erica -- me, too. Great minds think alike.

Erica: Are you trying to make a scene? There's nobody here. There are no cameras rolling.

Josh: Well, someone's got to protect my father from you.

Ryan: And I know that you've never thought that I would make a good father and, honestly, neither did I, but I have been working on it -- I really have -- and I'm asking for your help. I mean, I've always been, I mean, I think, very good at learning things very quickly. You know, you give me an engine, and I can break it down or give me some electronics and I -- I can set them up, but I don't think my son's going to come with an instruction manual, and I don't think a screwdriver's going to do me any good, so --

Jack: Yeah, well, you're certainly right about that. I don't know if you've necessarily come to the right man, though. I mean, as Lily can tell you in no uncertain terms, I'm not exactly a perfect father.

Ryan: But you love your children -- that's obvious.

Jack: I do. With all my heart, I do. But, Ryan, sometimes loving them isn't enough. Sometimes you have to do what you know to be the right thing for them, and they can get mad as hell at you.

Ryan: Wow. And -- and then what?

Jack: Then you make sure that they know you still love them.

Ryan: Hmm.

Jack: Kendall's baby, your baby -- they're going to be a part of this family. You and Kendall don't have to do this alone, you know. I mean, Erica and I will be there for you.

Ryan: Thanks, Jack. I mean, I -- I want you both to be part of his life.

Kendall: Wow. He must know we're talking about him.

Greg: He's very strong. He's very healthy. You've really been a good mother. You've really taken care of this child. Now you can take care of his future.

Kendall: I -- I don't know if I can do this.

Greg: What can I say to help you make this decision?

Kendall: The last time I was here, I ran into Ryan with Zach, and I know that's weird enough, but they were talking with my mother -- it was the three of them together -- and none of them agrees with this. It's probably the first time in all of their lives they've all been of the same mind, and they're all on the same team and it's not mine, and it makes me feel very alone.

Greg: It's an enormous decision you have to make, but in the end, it's one that you have to make on your own.

Kendall: What if they're right?

Greg: When it comes down to it, you have to listen to three voices -- your own, your baby's and God's. What can I tell you to help you to make this choice?

Kendall: Are you sure the Rivingtons will give him a good life?

Greg: Yes, beyond a doubt. Would you like some more information on them?

Kendall: Well, I already saw the file.

Greg: Oh, I have some information here that wasn't in the file. Jennifer and Joe have been trying to get pregnant for five years. They've tried every possible procedure, nothing has worked -- IUI, in vitro, artificial insemination. Last year, Jennifer -- she got involved in an egg donor program. She miscarried three times. And the last time she miscarried, she hemorrhaged so severely it almost killed her.

Kendall: Why would she do that to herself? I don't -- I don't understand. Why does she need a child so badly?

Greg: And why did you go through all of this for Greenlee? Because you wanted to give her a baby. Some women don't feel as if their lives are complete without it.

Kendall: Well, I don't get that.

Greg: Well, all women are different. It's -- you don't feel the same way, but for Jennifer, her only hope to have a child is adoption.

Kendall: And why not mine?

Greg: You went through a huge amount of physical and emotional stress to create a beautiful gift for your friend. Greenlee is gone. Now you have the chance to give that gift to a couple who deserve it just as much if perhaps not more.

Kendall: I never imagined it would turn out this way.

Erica: Your father enjoys my company, Josh. You'll just have to accept that. What I don't have to accept is your harassing me every time we run into each other.

Josh: You call this harassment? This is small talk, Erica. What you're doing to my father is borderline harassment.

Erica: Just steer clear of me every time you see me. Is that understood?

Josh: Or what? You going to put me over your knee?

Jack: Or maybe I'll just knock some of that ego out of you myself.

Jonathan: Best friends help each other, and best friends are the first person that you call when you're in trouble.

Lily: And best friends help each other with their problems.

Jonathan: And best friends -- they can tell each other anything and -- and the other person won't get mad about it.

Lily: And they agree to disagree.

Jonathan: Exactly.

Lily: And they plan secret surprises.

Jonathan: I couldn't do this surprise without you, Lily. Thank you.

Lily: You know, my dad said something about best friends once. He told me that best marriages are when the husband and wife are best friends, too.

Jonathan: Um -- does that mean you want to marry me?

Ryan: Kendall, are you all right? You're not here for medical reasons, are you?

Kendall: No, I'm -- I'm fine. I -- I just -- Dr. Madden was released, and I was just checking on him to see when he'd be back in his office.

Greg: Kendall tells me you're still reluctant to consider adoption for her baby.

Ryan: Our baby. And I have considered it, and I have rejected it.

Kendall: Ok, now is not the time.

Ryan: My preference, of course, would be for Kendall and me to raise our child together, but with or without her participation, I intend to raise my son.

Greg: Kendall, perhaps Ryan and I should speak privately.

Ryan: Uh -- no, thanks. Actually, I'm happy that she's here. I just want to clear a few things up, you know, no misunderstandings. Now, I'm aware that Kendall is still leaning towards adoption.

Greg: Well, that is her choice --

Ryan: I want you to know in no uncertain terms, that option is off the table. There is no way on this earth that I will ever sign away my parental rights.

Dixie: I can't tell you why I have to stay. I just do.

Di: Well, that isn't acceptable.

[Dixie sighs]

Dixie: Look, just know that once I take care of things, I will keep my word. I will go.

Di: "Take care of things"? This is not fair. Huh.

Dixie: Well, maybe someday you will understand.

Di: No, you know what? I don't think I am going to understand, any of it -- why you went away, why you stayed away, why you gave up this amazing family who worships you and the ground you walk on to this day. I don't understand why you came back when you said you wouldn't. And now you're going to stay for who knows how long? I just don't get it.

Dixie: Well, I will leave soon, I hope. And then you can go on and live your life however you choose to.

Di: I hope so. I mean, because David -- David thinks he has a pretty good chance with you. If you just encouraged him not to say anything, you're crazy. You can't trust that man. I mean, how do you know he's not out there telling the world about you right now as we speak?

[David whistles]

David: If it isn't Tad Martin, Pine Valleyís most eligible sucker.

Tad: Ok, Hayward, I'll bite.

David: You usually do. I just want to congratulate you, Tad. And when you're through, you get to congratulate me.

Di: David wants me to help convince you to run away with him.

Dixie: Well, David's an idiot. Let him be a fool.

Di: No, you know what? I think I'm the one being the fool -- for doing this without knowing why. I am completely setting myself up to be the bad guy again. I just get things right, and then I get sucked into this. Thanks, Dixie. Thanks. Just hope whatever you're doing is worth it.

Dixie: Di, come on. I didn't mean for it to be like this. I never meant for it to be like this.

Di: Tad and I are engaged. He's asked me to marry him, and I said yes.

Dixie: You and Tad are engaged?

Di: That's why David thinks I'll take his side -- so you can't step in and destroy what Tad and I have.

Dixie: Wow. Well, I -- uh -- I would be lying if I said that I didn't care. Tad was my husband. We had a life together.

Di: Or that you gave up.

Dixie: And now he's engaged to my sister. Wow!

Di: So are you planning on sticking around? I'm just saying the longer you do, the harder the secret is to keep to get us what we both want.

Dixie: Well, like I told you, I don't intend on revealing myself to Tad -- ever.

Di: I mean, because you -- you may not have to, because someone else might do the job for you. You know, David's already caught you. Who will be next?

Tad: You want me to congratulate you? I'm sorry -- if this is a joke, you're going to have to clue me in.

David: I spoke with Babe this morning. She told me all about the good news -- your recent engagement?

Tad: Don't expect an invitation.

David: No, no, no. Congratulations, really. You two belong together -- the phony and the sap who bought her story.

Tad: Ok, we're done here.

David: Oh, come on, don't be a sore loser.

Tad: The only thing I'm losing is my patience.

David: Well, she liked me better than you anyway.

Tad: "She" who?

David: Ah, don't worry about it. Now it's your turn. You get to congratulate me.

Tad: What do I have to congratulate you for?

Dixie: David has complicated things. He wasn't supposed to know that I am alive.

Di: But he does. Now what?

Dixie: He says he caught you off-guard.

Di: Oh, so now it's my fault that he found you out?

Dixie: Well, according to David, he said that the night Janet told everybody I was alive, you know, you didn't seem surprised.

Di: Oh.

Dixie: You -- you made him suspicious.

Di: Oh, well -- oh, well, I -- you know, I am so sorry. I was concerned about the people that were being held hostage by that crazy woman to put on my game face. I guess when she yelled "Dixieís alive," I -- yeah, I didn't really ride that out too smoothly. Wasn't really the easiest position for me to be in.

Dixie: That's fine. I'm not blaming you.

Di: No, I hope you're not. Because what -- I mean, I made David suspicious -- so what? That's all he would be if he hadn't seen you in the flesh hanging out on the Chandler grounds like that's what all dead people do. And you know, I -- I'm sorry, but, Dixie, how did Janet know that you were alive in the first place? Your plan of not being found out -- see, it's not working so well.

Dixie: Di, I'm really sorry. I know I have put you in a tough position. Just please be patient. It will all work out.

Di: I have been patient. While you have been gallivanting around this town, I have been holding off David, I have been lying to Tad, which I said I wouldn't do. I have got a real life here, Dixie. It's not yours, it's not a castoff -- it's mine. And I'm risking that for you. I just need to know why. You know, I have everything to lose, so, yeah, you know what? I am losing my patience a little bit. I think maybe it's time to end all of this.

David: You get to congratulate me on my new life.

Tad: I'll congratulate you if you tell me you're leaving Pine Valley.

David: You know, I very well could, and then you get to live your new life with your Dixie wannabe.

Tad: This new life of yours -- does it involve desperation or loneliness?

David: No. No, as a matter of fact, it's the complete opposite. One day, I might just be gone, and you will never, ever know how truly sorry your miserable life is compared to mine.

Tad: Hayward, I doubt I will ever give you a second thought.

David: You'll never know, but I will, and I will enjoy every second of it.

Lily: I still have 28 days until my 18th birthday. Remember we agreed to talk about marriage then?

Jonathan: Wait, it -- it has to be because you really want to marry me, Lily, not -- not so you can be independent -- oh. Oh, I wish I never would've brought it up, but you have been thinking about it.

Lily: We're best friends now, right?

Jonathan: Yeah.

Lily: Then, yes. I've been thinking about it. It's still a possibility.

Jonathan: Then I'll -- I'll wait until you're 18.

Lily: It's time to go. No one can see us doing numbers 3, 4, and 9.

Josh: Careful. You don't want to blow out one of those pins they put in your neck.

Jack: Don't you think for a minute that I would let that stop me from kicking your miserable butt all up and down the hall here.

Erica: Jack, Jack, please don't get into it with him. This is just not worth our time or our energy. Come on, let's just go.

Jack: I think maybe I'll stop by Joe Martin's office and file a formal complaint over your hiring.

Josh: Well, why don't you get in line? Last name's Madden, M-A-D-D-E-N.

Erica: Stop it, Josh. Just stop it.

Jack: Erica, this lowlife is the man that drugged you.

Josh: That's slander, counselor. You know, I love a great lawsuit. Keep it up, I might not have to work anymore.

Erica: Yes, Jack. This is the person who drugged me. But more importantly, I know you have an appointment with your doctor. Please, your health is much more important than any of this. Please?

Jack: I'm watching you.

Josh: Always a pleasure, Jack.

Erica: You stay away from me and my family.

Kendall: Don't think you can waltz in here and tell me what to do with my baby. I told you you can't raise this baby alone.

Ryan: Now who's giving who orders? Look, Kendall, this isn't your decision alone. I have rights.

Kendall: Oh. I never should've signed those papers.

Ryan: I understand if you don't want to be part of our child's life, but I do, so just forget adoption, because it's not going to happen.

Greg: Why don't we sit down --

Ryan: Why don't you just stop and shut it, ok, because this is between Kendall and me -- not you. You've already influenced Kendall enough.

Kendall: No one has an influence over me, Ryan, including you, especially you.

Ryan: You know what? After this baby is born, regardless of what Kendall decides, your services are no longer needed, Doctor.

Kendall: You can't just claim the baby yours.

Ryan: I don't have to claim it, Kendall. He is mine. I'm his father.

Kendall: I am so sick of other people not trusting my choices. I will not have other people dictate what I do with my life!

Greg: What about the future life of your baby?

Kendall: It's my call, damn it!

Greg: So, what about the adoption? Is it on or is it off? What does your heart tell you to do about this baby?

Kendall: My heart tells me I'm sick of other people making decisions for me.

Greg: If you believe adoption is the road to your child's happiness, then I will make it happen one way or the other.

Kendall: And Ryan?

Greg: With Ryan's consent or without it. It's up to you. You're the one that has to make the decision. But first of all, you have to decide what's best for your child.

[Kendall signs the paper and leaves.]

Josh: I'll stay away from your family when you stay away from my father.

Erica: I don't take orders from you, Josh, nor do I listen to threats.

Josh: You know, I still haven't figured out why you've cozied up to my father, but I don't like it, and it's going to stop right now.

Erica: Actually, I'm here to escort your father to my show -- you may have heard of it. He's scheduled to discuss his new beginnings.

Dixie: All I'm asking is for you to trust me.

Di: Trust you? How can I trust you when you won't even tell me why it's so important? Ah! God, I hate this!

Dixie: Well, don't you think I hate it, too?

[Di sighs]

Dixie: I don't want to be here one minute longer.

Di: Well, then, go, Dixie! Just tell me what you need done here, and I'll -- I'll do it gladly.

Dixie: I can't. I cannot pass this on to anybody else. It is too important. Look, be happy with Tad if you must, ok? Just don't put it in my face. I don't want to see it. I wish things were different. Trust me, I really do, but I need you right now. I need you to keep your word. I need more time. But I need you to help me get it.

Erica: Greg. How are you? You look well.

Greg: Are you here to make sure I don't keel over before the cameras roll?

Erica: Oh. I am here to be your very appreciative escort.

Greg: Well. Then by all means. Shall we?

Erica: Yes. I have everything ready for you down at the studio.

Greg: I'm honored.

Erica: No, really. The honor is completely mine, truly. I can't wait to share you with our audience.

Greg: I hope there's enough of me to go around.

[Ryan watches Greg and Erica as they leave the hospital.]

[Kendall is shocked as she returns to her condo and finds it decorated for a baby shower.]

Lily and Jonathan: Surprise!

Di: I'm not going to let you destroy what Tad and I have found together.

Dixie: Listen, if you tell Tad, it will be just as bad for you as it is for me.

Di: No, actually, I might finally get a little bit of credit for telling the truth. But if I let someone find you, well, then, that makes me the bad guy all over again. So if you're not going to tell me what's going on right now, Dixie, I'm through. Fine. That's how you want it. You had your chance.

[When Di opens the door to leave, she finds Tad standing there.]

Tad: Hey.

Di: Hey.

Tad: What's going on in here?

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

Jonathan (to Kendall): Ryan -- he's going to be a wonderful father, so please let him be a father to his son.

[An uncomfortable Dixie hides as Tad and Di hug and kiss on the bed.]

Tad (to Di): Let's enjoy ourselves, shall we?

Di (to Tad): Tad, no, we shouldn't.

Tad (to Di): Oh, sure we should.

Greg (to Erica): It's very refreshing.

Erica (to Greg): It should do the trick.
