Kendall: You were right, Zach. I want him. I want my son more than my own life. And I also want you. I do, I want you. I -- I tried. I tried to get over you, I really did, but I couldn’t. And I didn't want things to be this way. I -- I kept waiting for you to do something wrong or -- or do something dreadful, and I tried to stop wanting you. I don't want to stop wanting you anymore.
Greg: We have nothing to discuss, Mr. Lavery.
Ryan: Oh, I think you're wrong. It's a good thing I came to help you out.
Greg: You help me? I doubt that.
Ryan: Hey, where are your suitcases? How can you possibly pack and leave town if you don't have any suitcases?
Greg: Are you being funny?
Ryan: Am I laughing? I'm serious, come on, let's get packing here. I only have enough time to get you checked out of this place.
Greg: I'm not going anywhere.
Ryan: Oh, I think you are. And don't worry about it -- nobody's going to miss you at your clinic.
[Dixie arrives and listens at the door.]
Tad: J.R. Here you are. I've been looking all over the freakin' place for
J.R.: Well, here I am.
Tad: I need your help.
J.R.: No, I'm sorry. Shop's closed today. Look, I don't need a babysitter, a marriage counselor, or -- or certainly not a shrink.
Tad: Good. Glad to hear it, because I do. Let's go.
Krystal: I am calling shenanigans. What is the big secret?
Babe: You better grab a ticket and hop onboard, because this baby train is leaving the station.
Krystal: You're pregnant? How did you let that happen?
Babe: Well, I'm not pregnant -- not yet, at least.
Krystal: Oh, well, good. There's still time to smack some sense into you.
Babe: Look, last time that J.R. wanted to have a baby, I wasn't down with the plan, because I knew it was a test. But this time, a baby sibling for Little Adam -- it's all my idea.
Krystal: Over this grandma's dead and lifeless body.
Erin: Jack, what are you doing here?
Jack: My daughter's missing. Where's your brother?
Erin: I'm -- I have no idea what you're talking about.
Jack: Just tell me where he is!
Erin: Jack, could you just -- could you slow down for a minute?
Jack: Look, I don't have time for this. My daughter is gone, Lily’s gone, and if Jonathan --
Jonathan: What? Lily -- Lily’s missing?
Jack: What did you do with my little girl?
Conductor: Next stop, Penn Station, folks. New York City’s Penn Station will
be the last stop.
[Lily exits the ladies’ room and returns to her seat.]
Lily: My bag, my phone, my wallet -- they're gone.
Greg: My work is very important in Pine Valley, and I still have a lot of it
Ryan: Seems like you've done enough already.
Greg: Mr. Lavery, lives are at stake.
Ryan: Yeah. Um -- well, there's two lives that you don't have to worry about anymore.
Greg: How did you get ahold of the adoption papers?
Ryan: Somehow -- and don't get me started on that one -- but somehow, you convinced Kendall that it was in her best interest to sign all the rights to our unborn child -- best interest -- and I find that very funny, and not funny like "ha-ha" funny, funny like sick and twisted, so consider this null and void.
Greg: You have no right to terminate a contract that is not yours.
Ryan: Um -- actually, I do have rights, because I happen to be the father of the child. And as the father, I am completely terminating your plan. It's done. It's over. So when Kendall comes back from her little vacation, you will have nothing to do with her or her child or her mother. Is that clear? You take your God-playing traveling medicine show someplace where they actually buy your BS.
Greg: Get out.
Ryan: I don't see any suitcases. You better get them out, because if you don't leave Pine Valley, I will personally nail your door shut.
Greg: I don't respond to threats, Mr. Lavery.
Ryan: That's too bad. You have no pull over Kendall or our child anymore and don't make me come back here. One more thing -- you are not God.
Kendall: I don't want to be that girl, that girl that I became the past
couple of months.
Zach: You don't have to say anything.
Kendall: Zach, I became that girl that I hated, the girl who was afraid of everything, of life, of choices -- of me. I mean, when I stopped trusting everyone, I stopped trusting myself. That girl that I thought I kicked to the curb and outgrew? Well, she was back, and she was terrified of everything, especially the big three.
Zach: The big three? Your baby?
Zach: Ok, what else?
Kendall: Loving. Loving means trusting.
Zach: What about number three?
Kendall: You. You scared me the most.
Jonathan: Where did you lose Lily? How could you let this happen?
Jack: Don't stand there and accuse me of losing my own child. You know, if
you had just gone away and left her alone, none of this would've happened,
Erin: Ok, ok. We don't even know what happened exactly.
Jack: We were on the train. I was taking her back to her old school to get her away from this one when she -- she went to the ladies' room. It was the last I saw of her.
Erin: Oh, God.
Jonathan: This is bad.
Jack: Yes, it's bad, Jonathan.
Erin: Ok, wait. Ok, did -- is Lily lost or did she run away?
Jack: I don't know, Erin. Honestly, I don't know.
Jonathan: That's her bag. Let me see that --
Jack: Just leave my daughter's things alone. Just leave them alone.
Erin: Listen, Jack, maybe something in the bag can help?
Jack: Fine. I looked through everything -- go ahead.
Jonathan: It was a new environment for her. You should -- you should've given her a map, and you should've walked with her and stood outside the door.
Jack: Stop, please. Jonathan, listen to me for one second, will you, please? Please. Did Lily say anything to you, anything at all, about her trying to slip away, run away, lose me, anything like that?
Jonathan: You kept us apart. How could she say anything? Well, she has -- she has no money. And she has no phone.
Jack: I know that, I know that. Everything was left in that bag.
Jonathan: So Lily’s out there with nothing.
Lily: 499, 498, 497, 496, 495, 494, 493, 492, 491. Ok, great. I have a plan,
I have a -- I have a plan. I have to revise my plan. Avenues -- north, south.
Streets -- east to west.
Man: I told you, Alan, no. We have to cut our losses and sell it off. I don't care what the forecasts say. Now, do you -- do you want to lose money? Well, have you -- have you seen the annual report? Those yahoos on the board are just killing us here. Hang on -- yes?
Lily: When you're finished with your business call, do you mind if I borrow your phone? I have to
call my friend Jonathan and ask him what to do.
Man: Don't be ridiculous. Shouldn't you be in school or something? I'm sorry -- where were we? Oh, right -- yahoos, driving prices down every decision they make.
Lily: Excuse me, sir. I need to borrow your phone. I need to make a small revision in my plan, and I need to speak with Jonathan about it. When I get my phone back, I'll call the company and ask them to send you some of my minutes. It's my birthday tomorrow.
Man: Good for you. Tell it to somebody who cares, all right? Now get out of my face before I call the cops. No, I'm sorry. Some creepy kid came up to me and wanted to use my phone. So what do we do?
[Outside Greg’s room, Dixie recalls the day after her accident that her baby
girl was born.]
Greg: I told you I'm not -- Dixie. What are you doing here?
Dixie: May I come in, please? I owe you an apology before I leave town.
Greg: I have a couple of minutes. Come in.
Dixie: Thank you.
[After Dixie enters Greg’s room, Ryan approaches the door to eavesdrop.]
Greg: Would you like a drink?
Dixie: Ah, yes. Thank you. Just a club soda, though, for me, thanks.
Greg: If you don't mind, I'm going to have something stronger. It's been one hell of a day.
Dixie: Ah, well, maybe it's about to get better.
[Dixie holds the vial that David gave her behind her back.]
Kendall: You always had more faith in me than I did.
Zach: You don't always want to hear that.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I just wanted to go back to being the woman that I was on New Year's Eve.
Zach: I miss that woman very much.
Kendall: I just wanted to move forward and be clear, and you made that possible. So, bring it on. Whatever it is, bring it on. I can take it. Not to say you don't still scare the crap out of me.
Krystal: Why in blazes do you think that having another Chandler bambino now,
of all times, is a good idea?
Babe: I didn't say it was a good idea.
Krystal: Oh, good. Now we're talking.
Babe: So what do you think? Fine, you want the messy, short explanation?
Krystal: If messy is all you got, I'll be wearing that maternity smock before you are.
Babe: That is a really good idea. We could be pregnant together, Mama.
Krystal: No, no, no. One ludicrous idea at a time, please. What is the reasoning behind this sudden spring cleaning?
Babe: Having J.R.’s baby will prove to him how much I really love him, and I trust him and that he can trust me back.
J.R.: All right, so you got me here. What's the catch?
Tad: No catch.
J.R.: I didn't come here to be lectured on all the ways I'm not being fair to my mom.
Tad: Done and done.
J.R.: Because the woman who's dead to me is still very much dead.
Tad: J.R., I brought you here, because I need your help in a couple of ways. Firstly, I would like you to help me with my pool game.
J.R.: Oh, come off it. That's lame.
Tad: Well, it's easy for you to say. You haven't lost 400 bucks to Aidan in the last week alone. Don't tell him snooker is easier than pool -- he'll take your shirt.
J.R.: And second?
Tad: Second thing is I'm going to cut a hole in this wall, right over here.
J.R.: Oh. You're serious?
Tad: Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Power tools are not my strong suit.
[Electric saw whirs]
J.R.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Hey, hey there, partner.
J.R.: You sure you know what you're doing?
Tad: What's to know? Me, Tarzan, this, power tool. It's got to be in the genes somewhere.
J.R.: Why do you want to cut a hole in the wall?
J.R.: How big?
Tad: I don't know, like about -- like so by so.
J.R.: That's a lot of access!
Tad: Yeah, I know, but you know what they say -- "Access is the key to the universe."
[Electric saw whirs]
J.R.: Tad, wait! Don't!
Dixie: This has all been such a mess.
Greg: Well, life can be like that. It just needs a hand to guide it. Speaking of mess –
[While Greg’s not looking, Dixie pours the contents of her vial into his glass.]
Greg: Club soda for the lady.
Dixie: Thank you. So, I've been doing a lot of soul searching.
Greg: Did you find anything?
Dixie: Well, I didn't like what I saw. Let's put it that way.
Greg: You know, sometimes our minds are so wrapped up in what they tell us that we don't actually see what's in front of us.
Dixie: Well put. I realized how selfish I've been. Perhaps I've hurt my friends and family enough. Perhaps the family that -- that you gave my child -- and Tad’s child, too -- well, perhaps she's better off with them.
Greg: That's quite a breakthrough. That deserves a toast. Everything works out for the best.
Dixie: Yes. To honesty.
Jack: Just please let me know when Lily contacts Jonathan.
Jack: I know she will. Please -- I mean, she could be in serious danger.
Jonathan: You don't have to tell us. We have to find her!
Jack: Look, I don't trust a word your brother says. But I'd like to know that I could trust you.
Erin: Yeah. You can, Jack. Anything I can do at all, you let me know.
Jack: I mean, whatever might be right for Lily, you know it's not him, right?
Jonathan: I have to go look for her, too.
Erin: No. Jonathan, we're -- we're going to let the authorities handle this. We're going to wait here, and we're going to see if she calls, ok?
Jack: Just, please, please keep in mind how serious this is. I mean, if something does happen to her, and she retreats into that world of hers, she may never come back again.
Lily: 512, 513, 514 --
Conductor: Last stop, New York --
Conductor: Penn Station.
Conductor: Everybody off the train, or you're going to the rail yard.
Lily: 518, 519 --
Conductor: Hey. You're the reason we had to stop the train. You're the one everybody's been looking for.
[Lily runs away from the conductor.]
Babe: I know that it sounds crazy, but what else can I do?
Krystal: Have you lost complete control of your senses?
Babe: J.R. is drifting further and further away from me. I have to do something, so which one says "Let's make a baby" -- red and sexy or pink and romantic? Which one?
Krystal: I think, cover yourself up.
Babe: Fine. Sexy it is, then.
Krystal: Babe, honey, you can love J.R. all you want, but since when can he be trusted to do the right thing by you and that little peanut? Good Lord, girl, he is staggering around trying to make sense of his own mother's rejection. Now is not a good time to expand the brood. Look, there is every chance in the world that you are going to get caught in the crossfire. And, honey, it is coming, sooner rather than later.
Babe: I know all this, but I have to do it, Mama. You didn't raise a dummy.
Krystal: You're damn right I didn’t. But sometimes, love turns your mind to mush.
Babe: If there was another way, I would do it, I would, but there isn't!
Krystal: Well, that's what mothers were invented for in the first place -- to stand up and say, "No, darling, you do not have to do this. No! A thousand times, no."
[Electric saw whirs]
J.R.: You cut a hole in that wall, you're going to get more access than you bargained for. That's a weight-bearing wall. You cut a chunk out of it, the second floor is going to become the first, and it's not going to be pretty.
Tad: Really? Huh. Ever feel like the universe is conspiring against you?
J.R.: Yeah, welcome to my world.
Tad: Ok, let's work on the old pool game.
J.R.: You're not all right, are you?
Tad: It shows?
J.R.: Pretty much.
Tad: You know, Dixie told me that I was supposed to help you figure this out. The really sad thing is I can't figure it out myself.
J.R.: Then maybe we shouldn't bother trying.
Tad: Yeah, but what if -- what if I'm the reason she stayed away from Pine Valley?
Tad: What if she couldn't face dealing with me after she lost the baby? What if I'm the reason she walked out on you?
Greg: I have a whole new respect for you, Dixie.
Dixie: Why, because I finally came to my senses?
Greg: I never realized you were such a strong woman. I mean, I've always known you to be strong, but look what you've been through.
Dixie: Well, it does feel good to finally relax.
Greg: Now. That was worth waiting for.
Dixie: Hmm. A good drink usually is.
Greg: Look at that -- I'm still here.
Dixie: Well, of course you are.
Greg: Shouldn't I have fallen over by now or should I slowly make my way to the sofa so it'll cushion my fall?
Dixie: I'm sorry?
Greg: Was it knockout drops you put in my drink?
Dixie: I'm sorry?
Greg: I saw your reflection in the television when my back was turned. What was I supposed to drink, Dixie? Some old-fashioned poison?
Dixie: I don't know what you're talking about.
Greg: Was I going to pass out and then you were going to rifle through my things and try to get information as to where your daughter is, or were you going to just withhold the antidote until I told you?
Dixie: You're such a bastard.
Greg: You know, I'm many things, but a bastard I am not. But you? You're about to become a convicted felon. I'm calling the police.
Kendall: It's about time I start trusting my own feelings again. Ok, I -- I
am scared to death of having this baby and raising him, but -- but I want to
anyway. I can't miss out on the chance to have him in my life, and I can't miss
out on the chance to have you in my life. And I -- I am scared to death of my
feelings for you.
Zach: Because I let you down.
Kendall: Because of who you are, because of who I am, because you and me, us together -- I would have to change everything I've ever done. All of those nasty habits I've spent years perfecting -- gone. But I still want you anyway.
Zach: I didn't bring you here to change your mind about me.
Kendall: Every time I felt the ice ready to crack and break under me at any time, I would just run as fast as I can -- just run. I couldn't forgive anyone for anything. I mean, I stood here and I told you that I couldn't forgive Ryan for something that he did to me years ago. If someone betrayed me, I either hit back or I ran, or both.
Zach: Ok. Well, if -- if you want to run, you should run, but it's just with the water and stuff, I'm -- I'm going to find you anyway, so --
Kendall: No, listen, would you stop, Zach, please? Ok, listen to me. Do you not get this? I am -- I'm petrified. I am scared out of my mind. I'm -- I'm here, I'm on this -- this boat and all I see is the unforgivable, but all I want to do is forgive.
Zach: I brought you here, so you could find what you lost. I didn't expect to be forgiven for anything.
Kendall: Yes, but I want to. God help me.
Zach: God help me. I always hoped you'd want me again.
Kendall: I never stopped wanting you. Never. I'm -- I'm not exactly the glass-half-full kind of person. And when it does get that way, I usually just throw it against the wall.
Zach: Hmm. You know, I remember, that's how you decorated my apartment.
Kendall: Oh, yeah, right.
Kendall: You know we're not supposed to be here. I'm supposed to be better off without you. And you're supposed to be pining for me forever.
Zach: No, there's an argument for both, but it doesn't really make either one of us very happy, does it?
Kendall: And I want to be happy. And I want you happy. We're supposed to be just broken glass shattered on the floor. But here we are, you, me, and my baby. And I love you both.
[Kendall takes Zach’s hand and places it over her belly.]
[Banging on door]
Ryan: Open up! Security!
Greg: What the hell --
Ryan: What the hell's going on in here? Are you all right?
Dixie: I'm -- fine.
Ryan: You're fine? You don't sound fine. What are you doing, Madden? You messing with yet another woman?
Greg: Not that it's any of your business, but this woman put drugs in my drink.
Ryan: Oh, she did, did she? Well, don't worry about it, Dixie. I'm with you. I'm sure he deserved it.
Greg: I had no idea you knew each other. Well, your friend here -- you can say good-bye to her, because when I give this glass to the police, we'll see then who the victim is.
Ryan: Oh, I doubt that.
Greg: They'll analyze the content, and she will go to prison.
Dixie: It was to make you tell me the truth.
Greg: Well, you should have taken some yourself and told your whole truth. There's a lot of people who would like to hear that, Dixie.
Ryan: You know what? I'm just really thirsty.
Greg: Why, you crazy -- give me that glass!
[Ryan downs the entire contents of the glass.]
Ryan: Wow, that's good! I mean, why do you do it, Madden? Why? Why do you mess with women, instead of playing with the big boys?
Greg: You have no idea.
Ryan: I mean, they're women and their babies, man. For God’s sakes! How messed up was that? No, I'm just curious. Did you start screwing with women's lives because you couldn't get your own wife pregnant? Is that why?
Greg: Why, you ignorant --
Ryan: Oh, did I strike a little chord there? I guess you're not God after all, are you? I think that went well, don't you?
Dixie: Thank you. This way.
Tad: What if Dixie did leave because of me? What if there was something else
that I could have done?
J.R.: Don't think that. This is her choice, all hers.
Tad: I don't know. Maybe we're not cutting her enough slack. I mean, there's always two sides to every equation, right?
J.R.: Not this time. Dixie doesn't care about us. If she did, she wouldn't have been making out with David Hayward.
Tad: You're kidding.
J.R.: I wish I was. I was over at the cabin. I saw them getting it on. Don't tell me there's two sides to the equation. Dixie is just as sleazy as David Hayward is. And I'm not about to feel sorry for her. Women -- the biggest mistake you can do is trust them.
Tad: Oh, come on. You can't leave them all at the curb, right? Are you trying to tell me you honestly think that Babe is like Dixie?
Jack: Tad, I need your help.
J.R.: I'm going to go.
[Car horns beep as Lily makes her way out of New York’s Penn Station and into the very noisy city.]
Kendall: I love you, Zach. Let me show you.
[While the music plays, Kendall and Zach undress each other, kiss and end up in bed.]
Singer: Picture the sky, that is how high I reach. So far in life none have been right for me, but your love is a chance I'd like to take. With each breath in me, i'll wake if it brings you back to me, because I'm free, and I'm young. I'm the loneliest star from the sun, but I feel that I'm close to the one who will stop me from coming undone. I have been close. I have been almost near. Who do you want to wake you up? Who do you want to care? White city light but nothing quite like here. Who do you want to be right here? And your love your love is a light that binds us both. Your love. With each breath in me I hope, we won't throw it all away. Don't you know that I'm free, and I'm young. I'm the loneliest star from the sun, and I feel that I'm close to the one who will stop me from coming undone.
Ryan: I bet you're really upset that Madden didn't get this drink, huh?
Dixie: Oh -- it'll be ok.
Ryan: You know what we could do? Hook his stethoscope up to, like, 110 volts. I mean, he may still not tell the truth, but it'd be fun.
Dixie: That's a good idea, but you know, I'll think of something.
Ryan: When I came back from the dead, I wasn't half as pretty as you are.
Dixie: Thank you. I get a lot of rest. Can I get you something?
Ryan: Like a drink?
Dixie: That's always a good idea, but no. I don't really know how this drug works, so I was wondering -- you know, maybe I should take you to the hospital or something?
Ryan: Yeah. That actually might be a good idea, because we go there, and we'll tell them about some sketchy doctor and some drugs, and I'm sure they won't even think about calling the cops or busting us. In fact, we could give them my insurance card. Or maybe they'd like my library card. Do you ever think about the near misses in your life?
Dixie: My life has been a series of near misses.
Ryan: Mine, too. Like Kendall and me. I mean, we were, like, this close to being this Cinderella
couple. Can a guy even be in a Cinderella couple?
Dixie: Prince Charming.
Ryan: Yeah. I'm not sure I qualify.
Dixie: You certainly saved my pumpkin today.
Ryan: Yeah. Where's my white horse? That's what I need. I need to buy myself a white horse.
Dixie: Are you sure you don't want to get your stomach pumped?
Ryan: No, actually, I'm feeling pretty good right now. You want my pin number?
Dixie: No, thank you. That's private.
Ryan: Not really. It's my birthday. Kendall and I would have been the perfect couple, if only we'd been two other people.
Dixie: I know exactly what you mean. It's like me and Tad.
Krystal: Sit down, sit down. Honey, if things get all out of control again
and J.R. goes off the rails, you're going to want to pack your bags and head for
Babe: I have to pull J.R. back from this, Mama. It's me or nobody.
Krystal: You don't want to be pregnant or nursing an infant if you have to beat feet out of this place.
Babe: I'm sorry, but it's the only way.
Krystal: I'm not saying it's going to happen. But you have to be prepared. Unless you are 100% sure that he is crazy in love with you -- are you 100%? No. Now, don't make me whoop you over the head about this, Babe.
J.R.: Krystal, hi. It's good to see you. Think we can get a minute alone?
Krystal: Sure, I was just leaving. Remember what I said, ok? Go with the flannel. Ok. Have a good night.
J.R.: Good night.
Krystal: Good night.
Babe: So what's up?
J.R.: I never wanted you more than I want you right now.
[J.R. tears off Babe’s clothes and pushes her on to the bed, kissing her.]
[As music plays, Zach and Kendall bask in the afterglow.]
[Alone in his room, Greg ponders what just happened.]
Dixie: Are you sure you don't want me to call someone?
Ryan: Oh, no, the pushups -- they oxidize the toxins in my blood. Makes the drug wear off faster.
Dixie: Ah. Well, you learn something new every day, don't you? Thank you.
Ryan: You kidding me? I'm always looking for an excuse to lay into Greg Madden.
Dixie: Oh, yeah, and thank you very much for that. I mean, if you hadn't shown up when you did, I definitely would be in jail right now.
Ryan: Oh -- I don't know. I mean, he's a pretty secretive little tool. I don't think he'd want the cops to find out whatever it was you were trying to get out of him. You know what?
Ryan: I know why some loves work and some loves don't.
Dixie: Oh, hit me, great master of truth and all things beautiful.
Ryan: Timing. It's all about timing.
Dixie: Ah, yes. Well, you have just summed up my entire life in one word.
Tad: They find Lily?
Jack: Thanks. Thanks, I will. Oh, my God. She -- she evidently didn't get off that train. She hid herself somewhere on it and rode it all the way to Manhattan. I can't believe this.
Tad: Ok -- no, no, no. Listen, listen, you give me five minutes, I can have six guys on the street. I've even got a guy in Manhattan right now.
Jack: Thanks, Tad. Thank you. And get somebody on Jonathan Lavery, whatever you do. He's got to know something. I know he does. And when Lily contacts him, I want to be the first to know about it.
Jonathan: Call, Lily. Please call.
Lily: Avenues -- north, south. Streets -- east to -- to west. Avenues -- north, south. Seventh, Eighth, Ninth Avenue. Seventh -- I have to revise my plan. Seventh --
Woman: You all right, sweetheart? Can I help you?
Lily: No, no, no, no.
[While Babe sleeps, J.R. drinks some more and stares at her malevolently.]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Tad: Drinking's got to stop. It's got to stop now.
Babe: It's your wake-up call, Dixie. Your family still needs you. I suggest you haul it over here.
Zach: Will you marry me, again?
Kendall: Get married right here, onboard?
Zach: If that's what you want.
