J.R.: Boy, I thought you guys were a lot smarter than that.
Babe: Josh just came by --
Josh: Don't even start with me, Chandler.
J.R.: Oh, take it easy. I just meant, what are you doing inside? There's so much great daylight. In fact, that's why I came to get Little Adam -- so he could go to the park and get some of that, huh?
Babe: No. You're not taking the baby anywhere, J.R.
J.R.: Is there a problem, Babe?
Josh: You take one more step, Chandler, and so help me --
Babe: Josh, stop it, please? He was just leaving.
Josh: Not if he's staying here.
Babe: I need to speak with my husband in private.
Josh: Babe, how many words do you think you'll get out before he tries to kill you again?
Amanda: Jamie, just where I thought I would find you -- studying.
Jamie: And doing a horrible job at it. What's up?
[Amanda grabs Jamie by the collar and kisses him.]
Dixie: You might want to make that a double. Oh? You surprised to see me? I made it out alive and with all your secrets. So you give me what I want, or I will ruin you.
Ryan: Where the hell have you been?
Erica: Now you show up? This is how much you care about Kendall?
Zach: I got your message. What happened to her? What's this about a C-section?
Ryan: There was an accident at Fusion.
Zach: How is she?
Erica: She's in a coma. My daughter may never wake up.
Kendall's voice: Zach. Oh, Zach, thank God you came. It's over now. You'll fix everything. Just please, please get me out of this.
Erica: Zach -- Zach, be careful. You can't just disturb her like that.
Ryan: Erica, just -- just give him a little bit longer, ok?
Erica: No. I mean, what about her IVs and her oxygen and monitor? These are the things that are keeping her alive.
Ryan: He's not disturbing them, ok? Really, it's ok. Come on.
Erica: Who is Zach Slater to go in there and hold her like that and disturb her like that? What if he ripped out one of the IVs? What if one of the monitors is not --
Ryan: Look, Zach would never hurt Kendall, Erica. He wouldnít.
Erica: Well, he may have already. Look, we have got to find the doctors right away. We've got to tell them that we have decided to go ahead and do the C-section as soon as possible. I know -- I know how much this decision has cost you, Ryan. Believe me, I do. And I'm not going to let anything delay this any longer. I'm not going to let anyone cause any more pain, ok, least of all that man.
Ryan: Just -- just give him another minute.
Erica: Ryan, any minute that matters belongs to Kendall, belongs to the baby. Zach gets nothing.
Ryan: He got her away from Greg Madden. I mean, we owe him.
Erica: We don't owe him her safety, we don't owe him her life.
Ryan: What if he can save her again?
Erica: What are you talking about? The only thing Zach Slater can do is hurt her again.
Ryan: She loves him, Erica.
Erica: Kendall despises him.
Ryan: No, that's just the noise that she makes to protect herself.
Erica: Because he's a danger to her, especially now.
Ryan: What if Kendall needs something to bring her back? Maybe that's Zach. Just give him a second, ok? Let -- let him try to bring her back to us.
Zach: It's a fine way to greet your husband. Because I was gone too long -- is that it? Trying to get my attention? You got it. Open your eyes for me, Kendall. Come on. Game's over, you win.
Kendall's voice: I'm in trouble. And Spike -- he may be in trouble, too.
Zach: Ryan says it was an accident.
Kendall's voice: It was J.R.
Zach: What happened?
Kendall's voice: Bastard. Tried to kill Babe and got me instead. You got to nail him, Zach. Nail him to the wall.
J.R.: I tried to kill my wife? How? By giving her love, a wedding, a happy family? Well I am such an ass.
Josh: You're a pathetic excuse for a husband and a father. You know what you did.
J.R.: Hardball -- that's what it is, isn't it? You coached my wife to screw over whoever she wants to get whatever she wants. And now you come in my house and you make these BS accusations to do what exactly, Madden? Jump back in the sack with my wife Ė for real this time?
Babe: Did anyone notice the baby in the room? Stop it, both of you. Josh, I asked you to leave.
Josh: Babe, grab your son and get as far away as you can from here.
J.R.: Do it, Babe. I'd like to see you try.
Babe: I am not going anywhere, Josh, you are. And keep your mouth shut about what you think you know about me and J.R.
Josh: And if I stick around long enough to show I care? Or tell the world what J.R. Chandler did?
Babe: You will regret it. Like a truckful of hurt you never saw coming.
Dixie: I know that Josh is not your son. He's Erica Kane's. You stole him.
Greg: And as usual, I have no idea what you are talking about.
Dixie: I saw the recording that you made. Really, how repulsive can you get?
Greg: I terminated a pregnancy at the woman's request. No laws were broken. And for your information, it was a private matter.
Dixie: You stole her embryo.
Greg: You are delusional.
Dixie: You are a freak.
Greg: I've had it with your harassment, and I'm not amused by your fantasies.
Dixie: This is no fantasy, this is a reality. I have got you, and there is nothing you can do about it.
Greg: I'm done here.
Dixie: I want my daughter. Where is she?
Dixie: Donor number 1 has been awfully busy. You used that sample to father how many children? How many women are pregnant now? I bet you anything if the court ordered some DNA tests, they would find out the daddy is you.
Greg: Do you think the police are going to believe your madness?
Dixie: Oh, I'll tell the police, and I'll tell the newspapers, TV media, and magazines -- everybody that I can think of. A big, ugly exposť all about and your career. Everything that youíve worked for, your reputation will be gone, so you give me what I want. Where is my daughter?
Greg: You really want to hurt me.
Dixie: I will destroy you.
Greg: Oh, if you have your way, you'll destroy the child that you claim you love.
Dixie: Let me tell you something. If you ever threaten my child again, you will be as good as dead.
Zach: This -- um -- it's not the deal we made. You're supposed to come back here to Pine Valley, you talk to Ryan, you talk to Erica, and then we'd go on the honeymoon. So what do we do now? What -- you -- you want me to plan it? You don't want -- you don't want me planning anything.
Kendall's voice: Do something, Zach. Fix this. It's what you do. Bring me back. Wake me up. Make this happen. You're the only one. I know it.
Zach: You can't feel me. And I can't reach you. I promised I'd take care of you and the kid, and I failed you. I'm sorry.
Kendall's voice: I'm so used to you saving me, I expected you to do it again, and I was wrong. You already gave me one miracle, Zach. I won't expect another one. No one can pull me out of this place I'm in, not even you. But it's ok, Zach. Please -- please hear me, Zach. It's ok.
Zach: I've got to go. But I'll be back, ok? I'll be back soon. So you just know I'll be here as long as you want me to.
Kendall's voice: Forever. I want you forever.
Kendall's voice: Zach? Zach? Well, don't just lie there, do something. Wake the hell up, already. Fight like crazy! I mean, who's a bigger bitch than you? No one. So, hurry up. Open your eyes, sit up. Do it now! Do it for Spike.
Ryan: Any change?
Zach: No. What happened?
Ryan: Building supplies at Fusion -- apparently Kendall walked in, and they came down on her.
Zach: Why was she in the construction area? What didn't someone stop her? Why didn't someone protect her?
Erica: Where were you?
Ryan: He got her away from Greg Madden, Erica. Thank you, by the way, if I haven't said that already.
Erica: Thank him for what? For leaving Kendall alone when she needed you the most?
Ryan: What happened when you got her away from Greg?
Zach: We stayed on the yacht a little longer, gave her a chance to think, rest, make sure the decision she was making about the baby was her decision, no one elseís.
Erica: But isn't she still with you, Zach? Did -- did something happen?
Zach: She came back to work, and then she wanted to talk to you. She wanted to tell you that she realized that she loved Spike -- that's what she's calling her boy -- and that she wants to raise her son with you.
Josh: All right. I'll go back to the hospital, check on your good friend Kendall. I'll give her your best.
Babe: Wini, hey. Thanks. Change of plans.
Winifred: Yeah, dinner's ready for Little Adam, if Little Adamís ready for dinner.
J.R.: We'll go to the park tomorrow, little man, no matter what anyone says.
Babe: Ooh, that was such a good hug. You are so strong. You are so strong. You fill up that belly for me, ok?
Winifred: Letís go get some food.
Babe: So let's hear it, J.R.
J.R.: What? What useless scum Madden is? What was he doing in my house, in my son's bedroom, stirring up this BS about I'm trying to kill you? You know, your buddy makes squat, but I'll take every dime when I sue him for slander.
Babe: Josh isn't the problem, and he didn't lie. You tried to kill me, J.R., and you won't get away with it.
Amanda: Don't worry. That was so not a come-on, it was a friendly "hello" and "good-bye." Sorry, you got a little gloss. I am leaving Pine Valley soon. I'm not sure when I'm going to get back, but I'm -- I'm ready to take care of myself and make the right decisions.
Jamie: Where are you going?
Amanda: It's kind of a secret.
Jamie: No games, Amanda, not about this.
Amanda: Jamie, I'll be fine, I promise.
Jamie: You're making big decisions now? I'm sorry, but I just -- I think that's a bad idea. And for you just to run off and not tell anybody why or where you're going -- I'm sorry, no way.
Amanda: Come here. All right, listen, Jamie. This is big, all right? It's big and awesome, and you cannot tell anyone, ok, not yet. I'm going to be a surrogate. I'm going to have a child for a couple that can't.
Jamie: A surrogate, as in carry a child for a stranger? Are you serious?
Amanda: I know, it is so not like me. It's, like, my first unselfish moment. We should have it bronzed or something.
Jamie: How did you get to this?
Amanda: It's a chance for me to give back, Jamie, to bring a life into this world and maybe make up for some of the lives that my mother took away.
Jamie: Hey, come here. Sit down. If you want to even up the cosmic scoreboard, Amanda, this is so far from the answer.
Amanda: You're not behind me on this?
Jamie: Amanda, you've just been through hell. You just lost your father and basically just lost your mother, too.
Amanda: It's life, death, and rebirth, Jamie. It's all that profound stuff that you usually believe in, and it's a chance for me to do something really good.
Jamie: Yeah, but you're not in the right state of mind to be making these decisions right now.
Amanda: My state of mind? I get it -- you don't think that I can take it. I'm just Janet, Jr., whacked out and too crazy to make a decent decision, and God forbid that I pass the crazy onto some innocent child.
Jamie: This is not about a child. This is about you, this is what's right for you, what you need right now.
Amanda: What I don't need right now is one more person who thinks that I'm a lost cause. Because, believe it or not, there is someone out there who actually believes in me.
Greg: The only one making any threats around here is you.
Dixie: You make one move to hurt my child, and I will make you suffer in ways even your twisted mind can't imagine.
Greg: I'm not a threat to your child, but you -- you're prepared to tear her world apart.
Dixie: That is not true. I love her. I want her safe, where she belongs -- with me.
Greg: You want her taken away from the only family she's ever known, the only woman she's ever called "Mother," the only man she's ever called "Father"? Let me ask you something. Would you know her if you passed her on the street? She wouldn't know you, this child that you claim is yours.
Dixie: She is mine. I gave birth to her. She's mine and Tadís.
Greg: So now you want to punish her? You want to throw her into some unknown hell -- a strange place with strange faces? And in the night when she cries frightened tears for her mummy, it's not you she wants. You're the wicked woman who turned her life upside down. You want to do to her what you did to J.R.
J.R.: You and Josh work together on this? You tag-team so I'd lose custody over this crock?
Babe: There isn't time for this, J.R.
J.R.: What, for your baby grab? You can always find time to steal a child, Babe.
Babe: What happened at Fusion was no accident.
J.R.: No, it was homicidal negligence, and if Erica doesn't sue your contractor, I will.
Babe: It was you, J.R.! You planned the whole thing! I -- I heard you in Kendallís room! "Not you, Kendall. It wasn't supposed to be you. Babe was supposed to walk through that door." I talked to the foreman, and he strapped down the supplies just like I asked him, so no one would get hurt. But you cut the strap, J.R., I saw it. That whole heavy pile was supposed to crush me, you wanted me dead. Good. At least you've stopped denying it. Maybe now we can talk.
J.R.: What's left to say?
Babe: Do I go to the police and let them send you to prison?
Zach: It's a spa and a medical facility, and Madden took her there to keep her isolated with bunch of other pregnant women. He wanted her to deliver there so he could take the baby.
Ryan: Just take my son, and to hell with what I want?
Zach: Well, Kendall is smarter than that. And once she was on the boat, away from Madden, she realized.
Erica: She realized that he is a maniac?
Zach: She realized that she loved Spike.
Ryan: "Spike"? That actually kind of fits, you know, in a "Kendall is his mother" kind of way.
Erica: And, Ryan, maybe this has made the baby even stronger -- having Kendallís love. And maybe it's made them both stronger, this whole thing. So once we do what we really need to do --
Zach: Which is what, exactly? Why would you want to take the baby now?
Ryan: All the doctors, including specialists from New York, are worried about the bleeding in Kendallís brain. And if the pressure gets too high, the pressure in her head, it will kill her. And they have a better chance at stemming the pressure if they take the baby out early.
Erica: Ryan and I have decided that this is the only choice that we can possibly make to save Kendallís life.
Ryan: And hope that the baby's got his mother's fight and that they both make it.
Erica: Exactly. Zach, we have got to do the C-section as soon as possible, for Kendallís sake.
Julia: These hospital gowns must make fashionista you crazy, huh? Well, nothing I can do about that. Oh -- but I will give you a sponge bath later. Oh, yeah. I know you can't wait for that. Well -- uh -- I guess I could brush your hair now. Seems like a crime anybody should have hair this gorgeous.
Kendall: Get your hands off me! You back off with the brush, you skank.
Julia: I don't know what I was thinking. Your hair is perfect.
Kendall: Oh, ok. Sure, suck up now. Well, it's too late, I'm awake. So you can kiss your little innocent family fantasy good-bye. I am raising my baby, and we're going to be fabulous, me and Spike -- and Zach and Ryan so, it sucks for you. Go get your own life. Mine's taken.
Ryan: This is just an impossible decision to make.
Kendall: I'm awake! I did it. I did it, you guys. I -- I knew I had to wake up, and you all say I'm insanely strong-willed, so -- Mom? Zach? Ryan? Come on! You guys, isn't this the whole point? Kendall comes out of the coma! All is well, pop a cork!
Erica: There really is no right decision except this one. We have to take the baby to save Kendall.
Kendall: No! No! What -- what the hell is wrong with you? Look at me. Listen to me, I'm fine! My -- my baby is fine. We're both fine. I know it. No. No, no, no, I -- I can't be there, I'm here. I'm awake. I'm awake, I know I am. This is -- this is just some really weird -- really weird dream. I can't be in there, because I'm here! I'm here, do you hear me? I made it -- didn't I? I didn't wake up. I didn't come back. I don't know how to do it. Oh, my God, I can't find my way out.
Greg: Kendall Hart is in a coma.
Dixie: That's awful. Why are you telling me?
Greg: I think it's important that you know.
Dixie: Why? Are you responsible?
Greg: No, you're threatening to tell Erica that Josh is her biological son. Right now Ericaís praying by Kendallís bedside that Kendall lives and also her unborn child.
Dixie: Well, maybe she would like to know she has a son.
Greg: If you're hoping to shock Erica with the news, you're too late, because she already knows.
Dixie: Well, I'm not trying to do anything to Erica. You've certainly done enough.
Greg: But a lot of people don't know -- her family, her husband, her children. Josh -- my wonderful son, the charming young man who rescued you from a crate. Yes, I heard about that. You want to cause him that pain? You see the pain your son is in, thinking you abandoned him. Could you imagine if he were told you were never wanted? You want to put him through that horror? The number of people that you would destroy -- Erica, her family, Josh. And not to mention that little girl who doesn't know you, and she doesn't even need to know you anymore.
Dixie: I'm not broken in some hospital bed. Your manipulation is not going to work on me anymore. You've got 24 hours to tell me where my daughter is, or the world will know what the renowned Dr. Greg Madden has done. And then you will be the one to wish you were dead.
Babe: J.R., you tried to kill me, and you ended up taking down Kendall instead. Am I supposed to just say "no biggie" and live with you as if nothing happened?
J.R.: No, I think you should steal my son, because that was your plan all along, wasn't it?
Babe: I heard you with Kendall. I saw you with her. You hate what you did to her, but what about me? Is there even a twinge about wanting your wife dead?
J.R.: Well, you have some imagination.
Babe: No, no, J.R., this is not imaginary, this is real. Just like our wedding was real, the way you loved me was real, in France when you made that sketch of me, made love to me.
J.R.: That was sex.
Babe: No. That was love, every single minute of it, for both of us.
J.R.: Fine. I loved you.
Babe: And when we took our vows?
J.R.: I meant every word of it. What about you, Babe? When you took the vows, did you mean every word you said?
Babe: Yes, I did.
J.R.: You're such a liar.
Babe: No, J.R.! You were betrayed by your mother, not by me.
J.R.: Then prove it to me! Swear to me you didn't marry me just to divorce me to get custody of our son. Swear on our son's life! Can you do that, Babe? Can you swear on Little Adamís life?
Babe: Can't because I did plan to take my son from you.
Jamie: Amanda, being a surrogate can be an amazing thing -- brave, gutsy even. But you need to time to recover first, and then if you still want to go through with this --
Amanda: I've made my decision. You don't approve, that's ok. I have plenty of support.
Amanda: Just forget I said anything. I really thought you were going to be happy for me.
Jamie: Why don't you just tell me who's involved? Is it someone at Greg Maddenís office, Madden himself? I mean, if I knew more, maybe I could support --
Josh: Martin, we need to talk.
Jamie: Do I look busy? Because -- well, I am.
Amanda: That's ok. You know, we're done. I'll see you around.
Jamie: Amanda -- I deal with you at work, because I have to. But in my free time, stay out of my face.
Josh: Right, because this is what I want to do with my day -- track you down. But you know what? It was you or the police. Babe is in trouble. Your lunatic brother wants her dead.
J.R.: Oh, so you admit to me that our marriage was a con? At least we know where we stand. We're done.
Babe: No. No way, J.R. We are talking. We're going to get it all out -- what I planned to do to you, what you tried to do to me.
J.R.: Why blow it all out now? Why don't we save some fun for the judge?
Babe: Ok, fine, I did have a plan! I -- I planned to make you love me and marry me, and I was going to wait for you to screw up, and I was going to take Little A and raise him on my own. But I was so busy trying to make you fall in love with me, I ended up falling in love with you myself. And it wasn't like back in San Diego -- we both have been through so much and changed, our love had changed. It was stronger and braver. And the day that we got married, on our son's birthday, a real family -- it was real and -- and wonderful and truthful. If you want me to swear on Little Adamís life, I will. I swear to you on our son's life the day that I became your bride again, I loved you more than you could ever imagine.
J.R.: I get it. If you love me, I guess love means calling the cops. So you must love me like crazy.
Babe: No, no, J.R., this is why I am right here in your face, saying things that you don't want to hear, because I won't give up on you.
J.R.: Yeah, not until Little Aís all yours.
Babe: I love you, J.R., but I will not be your victim. And I will not let our son lose his mother just because your mother crushed your heart.
J.R.: I don't give a damn about Dixie.
Babe: No, no. That's what you keep saying to me and to Tad and to yourself, and it is killing you, J.R. I love you, but I cannot get in your head and change what booze does to you. I cannot fix what Dixie did to you from the inside out. I am convinced if I have you arrested, it will be the end of you, but I need you to be willing to get help. Fight with me to save yourself, J.R. Fight with me to save Little Adamís daddy. Will you do that for us?
J.R.: What kind of help?
Zach: What about you? You agree with the others?
Dr. Solomon: It's the best chance we can give her. If I can answer any other questions --
Zach: I love you, and I want to be with you for as many years as I can get.
Kendall's voice: I love you. I want to be with you -- you and the baby.
Zach: The doctors want to take the baby. And Ryan and Erica agreed to a C-section soon -- today.
Kendall's voice: No, Zach! Tell them no!
Zach: Because they want you back.
Kendall's voice: I love this baby.
Zach: We all want you back.
Kendall's voice: I said I want him more than my own life, and I meant it. You know I did. It's too soon. Spike's not ready. Tell them, Zach, tell them. Save his life, not mine. Don't let them do it, Zach. Save my baby. Save my baby.
Jamie: I think you have the hots for Babe, and you're ready to make a move.
Josh: Do I think she's too good for him? Hell, yeah. I also think he can't wait to prove me right.
Jamie: The only thing that my brother has done lately is get emotionally screwed over and drink too much.
Josh: Oh, really? So Kendall Hart in a coma doesn't mean anything to you?
Jamie: That was a construction accident.
Josh: That was J.R. in murder mode. He went after Babe, but he got Kendall and her unborn child instead. Babe knows this, but she won't go to the cops. She's over there right now with killer boy. I don't know how that makes you feel, but it makes my skin crawl.
Jamie: If you're up to something, Josh, I swear --
Josh: Go find out for yourself. Unless you're still pouting, because she dumped you so you could become a doctor? You can't suck it up for one second, even when her life is on the line? You know, you may not think I give a damn, but I do. And if anything happens to her, I'm going after J.R., and when I'm done with him, I'm coming after you.
Babe: First, you take care of the alcohol issue, get yourself checked into a substance-abuse program.
Babe: J.R., please. You have hurt people, and I don't just mean hurt feelings -- Amanda and Kendall. You even took a shot at Mama. You have to get checked in somewhere. J.R., please. Tad and Jamie -- and I'll be there, and even your dad will do whatever they'll let us do while you're in there, and we'll be waiting for you when you get out.
J.R.: They know about this?
Babe: No. No, they don't know about our talk or Fusion or anything. But they love you, J.R., and if you ask for help, they'll do whatever it takes, just like I will. If that means therapy, we can do couples or individuals, family -- all of it if we have to. We'll do what the experts say. You can work through your issues with your mom, and we can work on our trust and honesty.
J.R.: What if I say no?
Babe: I go to the police, and you're on your own. But I don't want to do that, J.R. I want you happy and healthy. I want us to be this family that I know that we can be. So let's do it, ok? Let's -- we'll go to PVH today, we'll talk to Joe, and we'll see which program is the best. You can check yourself in today.
J.R.: Right now? I just pack a bag and I -- I go right now?
Babe: I love you. And I don't want to miss out on another second of our lives together. Will you fight for us?
Tad: All right. You called, I'm here. It better be crucial. Otherwise, you're not worth a moment of my time.
Greg: How about your daughter? Is she worth a moment of your time?
Erica: I spoke to the doctors, and I've signed all the forms for Kendallís C-section.
Ryan: OR will be ready in about an hour, and Neonatal is -- is ready.
Erica: They'll do whatever it takes, Ryan, for Kendall and -- and the baby.
Zach: It's not going to happen.
Erica: Oh, Zach, please don't make this any harder than it already is. I'm Kendallís mother, I'm her next of kin. The decision has been made.
Zach: I don't care what papers you signed. Whatever happens next is up to me. I'm Kendallís husband.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Jamie (to Babe): My brother's planning his next move, and I'm sure it's not a rehab.
Greg (to Tad): Your daughter was born very much alive.
Erica (to Ryan): I won't let my daughter die!
Dixie (to Zach): You're doing what Kendall wants.
Zach (to Dixie): Then why is there a voice in my head screaming to save my wife?
