Proofread by Gisele
Aidan: I haven't seen him.
Aidan: And I hope he does find her.
Jonathan: Have you seen this girl? She was here last Wednesday, . If you've seen her, call me, ok? My number's on the bottom. Excuse me, have you seen this girl? All right. Ok. If you've seen that girl, please call me. She was here last Wednesday at . Her name's Lily. She's very pretty, and she's slim, and she was here at last week, ok? It was on a Wednesday. Have you seen this girl?
Vendor: Check out the sunglasses, everybody. Come on and check out the sunglasses, everybody. Come on, step right up. Check those sunglasses out. Check the sunglasses out, everybody. Check the sunglasses. It's sunny outside today. Good prices, everyone. Sunglasses --
Lily: Sunglasses, thank you so much.
Vendor: Hey, hey, hey. Five bucks or you can forget about it.
Lily: I only have 92 cents, I think, but I can collect the rest by --
Vendor: Not happening.
Lily: No, don't touch. Don't touch.
Vendor: Check out your sunglasses.
[In order to get out of the busy street, Lily climbs down some stairs and shuts the trap door above her.]
[Babe recalls recent conversations.]
J.R.: Nothing distracts you, does it, Babe? Eye on the prize, custody of our son from day one.
Babe: Would you really?
Man: I'm sorry that lady got hurt, but -- I mean, it wasn't our fault.
Krystal: Baby doll? Are you here? Oh, my God. Thank God, you're all right. When I first heard about the accident, I was just so afraid it was you.
Babe: It almost was.
J.R.: You're my best friend, Kendall.
You're the only friend that I got, the only person who gives it to me straight,
tells me the truth. I'm so sorry,
J.R.: You have to wake up. You have to fight this. You have to get better.
Erica: It's impossible to save Kendall and the baby?
Joe: Nothing is impossible.
Erica: Good. Make it possible.
Joe: Erica, Dr. Solomon and Dr. Mayer have
given you their best judgment, based on long experience. Now, given the bleeding
going on in
Ryan: Kendall or the baby? One of them lives, but the other could die?
Joe: There are no absolutes. But you heard the opinion of Dr. Mayer and Dr. Solomon, and now you must decide what course of treatment.
Erica: That's the best they can do? That's
the best they have to offer -- risk the baby's life to save
Dr. Mayer: We'll do everything we can to save the baby and your daughter, but the risk to the fetus is --
Erica: I have had it with your opinion, and yours. I don't want either one of you anywhere near my daughter.
Joe: I'll take it from here. Stay close. I'll have you paged as soon as a decision is reached.
Ryan: I would like to go over this with you later, go over some other options -- something. I'll come find you.
Erica: Ryan, there is nothing to go over. I mean, just because a man hangs a stethoscope around his neck does not mean that he's a God.
Joe: Erica, they're very fine doctors, best in the state, if not the eastern seaboard.
Erica: They are buzzards, Joe. They're
buzzards. They're feeding on our fear. They wield their great prognosis and
they play almighty God with our lives -- with
Josh: Dr. Mayer really is the best, Erica, next to my dad.
Erica: Please, do not even bring up that man's name. Joe, I have had it with walls of diplomas and bloated reputations and egos to match. All the honors in the world don't make a doctor a man of integrity and compassion and morals. Please, please, Joe -- please find another doctor.
Joe: You mean another doctor who will tell
you what you want to hear, that
Erica: It's possible.
Joe: It is. But it's not likely, so you must be prepared.
Ryan: How the hell do we prepare for this?
Erica: Please, Joe, please. This isn't
just any patient. This is
Joe: Erica, I'm not going to lie to you,
but these are the facts. The longer
Erica: Well, then find another treatment.
Joe: If we take the baby by C-section,
Ryan: But what about the baby's chances? I mean, it's way too early, isn't it, Joe?
Erica: But there has to be a better answer.
Ryan: How long do we have, Joe? How long do we have to make this decision about the C-section? How long?
Joe: For the best possible outcome for Kendall, the sooner the better.
J.R.: It wasn't supposed to be like this. This wasn't supposed to happen. The last thing that I'd ever want is for you to be hurt.
J.R.: You know, you were right at the Mardi Gras Ball. I should've listened to you. Everything you said about Babe, you were dead-on.
Babe: I'm fine, Mama, really.
Krystal: No, you are nowhere near fine. Something is all kinds of out of whack, and it does not take a genius to figure out what that is.
Krystal: I have said my prayers for Kendall and her family, but this family has its own crisis, Babe -- J.R.
Babe: He's worried sick about
Krystal: He should be worried about a lot more than that. It's time to get real, Babe. J.R. is not just a drunk in a corner. He is dangerous. He has got me spooked, and you should be, too, spooked enough to run for your life.
[Car horns honk]
Jonathan: Excuse me. Have you seen this girl? She was here last Wednesday at . Have you seen this girl, sir? Excuse me, have you seen this girl? Have you seen this girl? Her name's Lily. She doesn't like the color red. Have you seen this girl? Her name's Lily. She's very pretty. She doesn't like to be touched, so if you see her, don't touch her, ok? If you've seen her, please call me. My number's on the bottom, ok?
Man: All right.
Jonathan: Ok, thank you very much. And don't touch her if you see her. She doesn't like to be touched. Excuse me, sir, have you seen this girl? Have you seen this girl? Well, thank you. Have you seen this girl, sir?
Aidan: Don't worry about Jonathan. He's safe.
Aidan: Well, as of about an hour ago, he was at a copy shop near Penn Station.
Aidan: One of my men, Pete, has been following Jonathan ever since Lily ran away.
Aidan: No, Jonathan is not a suspect, Erin. Ok, Lily is out there with nothing -- a strange place, a big city. She's got no cell phone, no money, no ID. There's no way of tracking her. And there's only one person that she trusts.
Aidan: Your brother's our best hope for finding Lily before she gets hurt. Well, it's probably our only hope.
Jonathan: Excuse me, have you seen this girl? Well, my number's on the bottom if you do. Excuse me, have you seen this girl? Excuse me. Excuse me, sir, have you seen -- excuse me, have you seen this girl? Excuse me, sir, have you seen this -- please, just look at the picture.
[Subway train rumbles overhead as Lily cowers in fear below the street.]
Babe: I'm -- I'm not afraid of J.R. He loves me.
Krystal: J.R. doesn't love anybody or anything when he's got liquor in him.
Babe: This -- this is not the part where I run. I stay -- and I stay, and I help him. I help him with the drinking and I help him with his mama and --
Krystal: Babe, your life and your son's life, is that worth the risk?
Babe: He's confused, and he's angry, but he would never hurt me. It's -- it's a mistake. It's wrong. It has to be. There's not even any proof.
Krystal: Proof? What kind of proof do you need -- your pretty little head on a platter? You saw J.R. I did, too. So did a whole room full of people who love him and you. He's dangerous, Babe. He's out of control. Even Adam cannot deny that he has spun to a new low.
Babe: The big family meeting, right. Yeah.
Krystal: Yeah. You did your level best to help him, and he just went nut case. All this ranting and raving about your plot to get custody of little Adam -- doesn't he know that you are way past that? Drunk with a side of paranoia, that is a nasty combination. I don't want you anywhere near that.
Babe: No. No, no, J.R., he needs me on his side.
Krystal: Let somebody else smack some sense into him. You've got to protect yourself and my grandbaby. Babe, you were all about keeping little Adam safe from his fire-breathing dragon of a daddy. Has that changed?
Babe: No, of course not. J.R. has flipped out, but that doesn't mean that I am going to give up on him.
Krystal: J.R. is ready to blow. Now, even Adam is on high alert. He is so afraid that J.R. is going to go bonkers and snatch Little Adam, he's with him right now at home. He's not letting him out of his sight, and I do not want you let you out of mine.
Babe: No, J.R., he has calmed down since he stormed out on all of us. He called me. He apologized, and he sounded sincere, Mama. He wanted to talk. We were going to meet.
Krystal: Where was I when this miracle call took place?
Babe: He called me on my cell phone. I was at the office, remember?
Krystal: And this reunion, where is it supposed to take place?
Babe: I got to get back to the hospital.
Krystal: No, no, wait. It's not an essay question. It's a simple fill-in-the-blank.
Babe: Mama, J.R., he's drowning in hurt right now. I can't leave him, I wonít. I want my family back, and I am going to fight for it.
Krystal: Well, that's a fight that you could lose, Babe, and lose hard.
Babe: Yeah, but, J.R. and I, we were happy
Krystal: Stop all the bobbing and weaving and answer my simple question. Where does your drunken, soaked, snake of a husband want to meet you?
Babe: I promised -- I got to go to the hospital. I got to go, Mama.
Krystal: Well, wait a minute. Now, when did you start keeping things from me, huh?
Babe: You remember that -- that old detective movie that you loved to watch, the black-and-white? And how it bored me to death. How many times did you make me watch that? Because you -- you right now, you're -- you're like that mean cop grilling me like a --
Krystal: Like a cheese sandwich, yeah. Mm-hmm.
Babe: Yeah. What was the name of that movie again?
Krystal: "Babe on
Babe: That's very funny, Mama, but -- I'll see you later.
Krystal: Babe. Babe, wait.
Krystal: The devil himself had a hand in this. Oh, my God.
[Subway train rumbles]
Lily: Jonathan would help me make a plan. Jonathan would help me make a plan.
[Sirens keep waling overhead as Lily rocks back and forth covering her ears.]
Aidan: Yeah. Well, nothing would please me more than to have Jonathan walk through that door with Lily.
Aidan: Uh -- I wouldn't let Jack hear you say that.
Aidan: Yep, that would be terrific. But it can only happen in a fairy tale.
Woman: How did you get in here? Did you lock yourself in? It's happened to me. You're such a pretty girl. You ok?
Lily: I need a plan. I need a new plan.
Woman: You look like you could use a glass of water, at least. I have some upstairs. I won't even charge you for the ice. Now, be careful. This bottom step's uneven, and it's hard to see in the light. I'm used to it. Here, I'll help you.
[When the helpful woman tries to take Lilyís hand, she runs off.]
Jonathan: Have you seen this girl? Her name's Lily --
Man: I don't know if it's the same girl, but --
Jonathan: Did you -- did you see her?
Man: No, I don't think I have.
Man: All right, man.
Man: Sorry about that.
Jonathan: All right.
[Car horn honks as Lily almost runs in front of a cab, then tires screech and horns honk while Jonathan continues looking for Lily.]
J.R.: I should've expected Babe to play me, right?
J.R.: And all of Janetís shouting about
J.R.: My mother was supposed to be perfect.
J.R.: Babe --
J.R.: We all know what Babe is. How can I expect to get the truth out of her if I can't even get a straight answer out of my own mother?
J.R.: And the love thing. How -- if
J.R.: My son is never going to know what it feels like to be played by his mother. It's a lot better for him to love a perfect mother who's gone than believe a mother who's just going to break his heart.
J.R.: You know, divorce, it wouldn't take
care of it. Getting full custody, snatching Little A. I still wouldn't be able
to protect my son the way that I wanted to. Babe's face in a silver frame. She
would be gone, but we would still have the memories -- all that love, all good.
I can raise my son on that. I could make that happen. That's why I did it,
[As Babe opens the door wider, J.R. sees her.]
J.R.: How long have you been here?
J.R.: I thought you were at home with Little A.
Babe: I had this crazy idea that maybe you needed me more.
J.R.: I'm good. Well, why don't you head home?
Babe: Hard to find any peace right now
J.R.: She's going to pull through. She has to.
Babe: She and the baby, they both have to make it.
Ryan: I didn't know
Ryan: I'm glad you're here. J.R., I know you and Kendall are very close.
Ryan: You know, I hope that -- I hope that she can feel that you're here, because I know that would mean a lot.
Erica: Oh, I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm here with Ryan and -- no, the doctors don't have any answers, none that I really like. Have you heard from Lily? Have you heard anything about her? Well, I know you will soon, Jack. Lily loves you, and so do I.
J.R.: Taking off or you going to stick around?
Babe: I should be asking you. Should I stay at the hospital?
J.R.: What's that supposed to mean?
Babe: I know, J.R. I know.
[When Babe runs off, J.R. goes after her.]
Ryan: You're so beautiful.
Ryan: I love you, Kendall. I know I've
hated you, and I know that I fought with you and chased you and ran from you,
but I do. I love you. I remember the first time that I saw you. I saw your
hair, those eyes. You're such an incredible person.
Ryan: Hey there, little guy.
Ryan: It's your dad. I'm supposed to protect you. I'm supposed to smack down the bullies and -- and pick you up when you fall. But this? I just didn't expect it to get so tough so fast. I don't know what to do. You see, I can't -- I can't just kiss you and make it better. I can't scare this away.
Ryan: I love you, son.
Krystal: Is there something I could do to help?
Erica: Oh. Why is it whenever there's any
trouble, you and your daughter are never far away? First you and Babe stole my
daughter Biancaís baby, put her through hell, smiled all the way. Now Babe
plows into Fusion, my daughter
Krystal: I have been praying for Kendall and the baby.
Erica: Oh, please. Do not -- do not do anything for them. If you want to help, just keep your daughter, Babe, far away from my family.
Krystal: I'm -- I'm sorry.
Erica: It's Kendall or the baby. We may
have to lose one to save the other. Save
Aidan: I love you, more than the Phillies, more than ice cream. And I promise you, I will bring Lily and Jonathan home safe, ok?
Aidan: Devane. What have you got, Pete? Where? How?
Aidan: Look, just stay in the area, get some backup, and give me a call in an hour.
Aidan: Jonathan has given us the slip.
Jonathan: Excuse me. Have you seen this girl?
Woman: It's the craziest thing.
Jonathan: Is that a yes?
Woman: Is she a runaway?
Jonathan: No. No, no, she's lost.
Woman: Not running from you, is she?
Jonathan: No. I love her. I'm her boyfriend. I have to find her, ok? So if you saw her, you got to tell me, please. Um -- her name's Lily, and she doesn't like the color red, and she doesn't like loud noises, either, ok, because she has Autism Spectrum Disorder. So if you know where she is --
Woman: I saw her.
Jonathan: When? Where? Where -- where --
Woman: Here. Poor girl was hiding in my cellar. I tried to help her, she got scared, ran out.
Jonathan: How long -- how long ago? I mean, which way did she go?
Woman: It was just a few minutes ago. I don't know which way she went. I tried to help her. I'm sorry. I hope you find her.
Jonathan: Ok. Ok, thank you.
Lily: 285, 284, 283, 281, 280, 297.
Boy: Hey, baby. Look at the junk on you.
Lily: I'm not a baby. I'm an adult.
Boy: Yeah, you are mighty fine adult.
Second boy: What you doing around here? Not exactly your hood.
Lily: Would you please stop that, please?
Boy: You are banging, girl.
Lily: No, I'm not banging anything.
Boy: Oh, yeah, you are.
Second boy: Oh, man, I would love to get me some of this.
Lily: No touching! I don't like to be touched.
Boy: No, I don't like to be touched.
Second boy: No, man. She just don't like you touching her.
Lily: No, I should go.
Boy: Someplace to be, Miss Thing? You lost? Maybe we can help.
Lily: No, no, thank you. I know exactly where I am. I'm in a warehouse --
Lily: Off the alley of
Jonathan: Have you seen this girl? If you do, my number's on the bottom, ok?
Jonathan: Um -- I've been -- I've been busy.
Jonathan: I can't tell you where I am,
Jonathan: Aidan's working for Jack,
Jonathan: Don't worry about me, ok,
Krystal: No mother should have to make that choice.
Erica: Well, you wouldn't hesitate. You'd order the C-section. You'd risk anything to save Babeís life.
Krystal: If my baby doll were in that room, God forbid, I know what I would want, but I would try to get inside her head and make the choice that she wants.
Babe: Let go of me.
J.R.: Where you going? You can't just drop a tease like that, walk away.
Babe: Watch me.
J.R.: Hey. What do you know? What do you know, Babe? Or are you just gaming me again?
Babe: I know that you loved me when you
married me on Little Aís birthday, when you drew my picture in
J.R.: You must be sleep-deprived. Go home and get some rest. I'll take you.
Babe: Don't touch me.
J.R.: Babe! Come back here!
Lily: You are invading my personal space. This isn't proper social interaction. I want to leave, please!
Boy: The party's just getting started, honey.
Lily: Look, there's no party here. There's no food and no music, no decorations.
Boy: You here. That's all we need.
Lily: No, I want to leave.
Boy: No, no, no, no. You got to pay the piper first.
Lily: What's a piper?
Boy: Just give us your cheddar. Your cash, your money!
Lily: I can't.
Boy: We're not asking, Betty.
Lily: My name isn't Betty. And I -- I can't give you my money. I need it to call my boyfriend.
Boy: Oh, boyfriend? You all see a boyfriend around here? All I see is a freaky deke little girl who's holding out.
Lily: Well, I need to find a pay phone. Do you know where one is?
Boy: You're not going anywhere until you give us your cash!
[Jonathan begins to walk down the alley where Lily is being threatened by three thugs.]
Josh: Hey, hey, hey! Hey! Are you ok? What's going on, Babe?
Babe: He tried to kill me.
Krystal: Let's you and me talk about your everlasting love for my baby doll.
Erica: Ryan, I've made a decision. We have
to save my daughter. We have to save
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Greg (to Erica): You must ensure that this child survives at all costs.
Josh (to Babe): Take this, call the cops.
J.R. (to Ryan): I'm so sorry.
