Adam: Ah. Hello. Ah, looks like I got here just in time. I think you need a drink.

Krystal: If I never see another drop of alcohol, I'll be happy.

Adam: Oh, bite your tongue.

Adam: Why so quiet? Krystal, something's wrong, isn't it?

Krystal: I think you better sit down, Adam. I've got some news about J.R.

J.R.: You're arresting me?

Derek: We actually have two charges of attempted murder -- one for Kendall and one for Babe, even though you only put one of them in the hospital. If Kendall or the baby don't make it, you're looking at a murder charge.

Erica: J.R., you couldnít. You didnít.

J.R.: Sure you want to do this, Babe?

Erica: I thought this was an accident. I thought this was just a construction site where things fell.

Babe: Because J.R. cut the strap and pushed it over. I heard him confess to Kendall.

Kendall's voice: Zach? Zach, is that you?

Julia: Well, it's nothing new on the hospital front. The same complaining interns, egotistical residents, and difficult patients. Yeah, only the nurses are perfect. The only thing that everybody does agree upon is that you are the prettiest woman in the ICU.

Kendall's voice: Take off, Julia. The vegetable doesn't need watering tonight.

Julia: Oh, no.

Kendall's voice: What "Oh, no"? What? What's so urgent? Is something wrong? I don't feel any different. What's wrong?

J.R.: You're sure you want to do this? There's still time to rethink it.

Jamie: She has to. Otherwise, you'll take another shot at her.

J.R.: Were you there? Did you see me? No, so shut up!

Babe: Look, J.R. -- he never meant to hurt Kendall. He -- he was out to get me. He set me up to come into that room, so he could kill me.

Tad: Is it true?

Dixie: Oh, God, say you didn't do it. Please, just tell --

Ryan: Just tell us the truth, J.R.

Derek: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you --

J.R.: All right, just wait -- just wait a second. Ok, I do have something to say. I want everyone to hear it from me. I owe you total honesty and full disclosure. My life as of lately has been difficult. But I never thought that this would happen. When you agreed to be my wife, and you said those vows, I thought it was the happiest day of my life. Thought we'd have a fresh start. Nothing could ruin it. And then the past grabbed me by the throat. Yeah, I was out of control. It's because I found out what my mother did and how I could never trust her ever again. And I started drinking. And I became paranoid and suspicious to where I couldn't trust anyone. Even you. But I never thought it would come down to this.

Adam: Your daughter did what to J.R.?

Krystal: Your son gave her no choice.

Adam: What kind of a loving wife turns her husband in to the police?

Krystal: The still breathing kind. Which Babe only is because poor Kendall is lying in the hospital.

Adam: Well, couldn't you have tried to talk her out of it?

Krystal: Oh -

Adam: To divert her in some way?

Krystal: Oh, with what, my warm, fuzzy personal experience with my stepson? J.R. kidnapped me, waved a gun around -- a loaded gun -- and got a shot off.

Adam: That -- that was ages ago.

Krystal: No, try weeks. And J.R. continues to prove over and over again that he is dangerous.

Adam: He was furious with Babe for arranging that family ambush.

Krystal: She was trying to get him to sober up and be the man that he should be!

Adam: She shouldn't have brought Dixie into it.

Krystal: Oh --

Adam: To use J.R.ís mother as a stick to beat him with? No, that's not what a good, loyal wife does for her man.

Krystal: Oh, what does a good, loyal wife do, Adam? Rest in peace?

Dr. Solomon: Her vitals haven't changed?

Julia: No, just the ICP.

Kendall's voice: ICP? What's an ICP? Is something wrong with Spike?

Dr. Solomon: What was it an hour ago when you checked?

Julia: It has been within normal range ever since she was brought in.

Dr. Solomon: High normal, but normal until this jump.

Kendall's voice: You sound farther away. Why are you farther away?

Dr. Solomon: It's not unexpected, but I'd hoped --

Julia: I know.

Dr. Solomon: Get X-ray up here for a portable skull. Someone has a tough choice to make.

Kendall's voice: Oh, God. Oh, God, Zach, where are you? Something bad is happening. I need you.

Zach: Get to what happened at Fusion.

J.R.: Look, I'm sorry, I just thought that everybody would like to understand --

Zach: What did you do to Kendall?

J.R.: Where I was coming from. When I saw Kendall under those cinder blocks and that plywood -- I realized that nothing is ever going to be the same again. Life is so short. We can't keep making the same mistakes and expect to lie our way out of it.

Erica: Is it -- is it true, J.R.? Did you try to kill my daughter?

Dixie: No, he didnít. Tell them that you didnít.

Babe: Yes, J.R., tell them. Tell them that you were drunk when you left all of us at the house. Tell them that you called me and told me to meet you in that room at Fusion, and you got loaded and planned an ambush just like the night that you kidnapped my mother.

Krystal: You can't -- can't defend him.

Adam: You're upset.

Krystal: You're damn straight I'm upset! Why aren't you?

Adam: Because I can't let my emotions take over here.

Krystal: Oh --

Adam: J.R. needs me. He needs you. We have to get through to Babe.

Krystal: Excuse me?

Adam: I thought she -- I thought she cared about him. I thought he could depend on her.

Krystal: Babe loved J.R. way more than she should have.

Adam: Well, he needs her support.

Krystal: My daughter was almost crushed, Adam, almost murdered. Now, does that register?

Adam: Yes, yes, that --

Krystal: Well, then why don't you care? She's not some stranger.

Adam: I care very deeply about Babe.

Krystal: And she's not just my daughter, Adam. She is your stepdaughter, your daughter-in-law, the -- the mother of your grandson.

Adam: Yeah. I'll take care of this.

Krystal: Oh, no. You don't love me. You don't love me or Babe.

Adam: I most certainly do. I adore you.

Krystal: No, no, the only thing you care about is getting J.R. out of trouble, getting the spotlight off of him.

Adam: I don't want my son to go to prison.

Krystal: And that's the kind of thinking that got J.R. in this mess in the first place. You preached superiority to that boy, and he bought it!

Adam: I installed some values in my son.

Krystal: Oh. Oh, and what was his first big lesson, huh? When other kids were learning about caterpillars and -- and butterflies, J.R. watched you rip the heart out of his mother. You taught him to strike first and take no prisoners.

Adam: We can talk about this later. My son needs me.

Krystal: Stop -- stop hurting J.R.

Adam: He's my son. I am responsible for helping him in any way I can.

Krystal: So you swing back and forth between spoiling him and bullying him. You coddled him, and you bossed him, but you always made sure that he never was punished. Thanks to you, J.R. believes he can get away with anything, including murder.

Adam: Are you finished?

Krystal: No. No. All this concern about J.R.? Meanwhile, you are ignoring one thing, one very big thing.

Adam: I'm sure you're going to tell me what that is.

Krystal: Oh, come on, Adam. Any possibility J.R. didnít try to kill Babe? No. You never once said that he was innocent.

J.R.: You all deserve to know the truth. I'm guilty. Guilty of marrying the biggest, lying, backstabbing bitch that ever lived. She made up every crazy word just to try to steal my son from me.

Babe: No, no, I'm -- I'm telling the truth. J.R. -- he set me up to kill me, and Kendall got hurt instead.

J.R.: Why do you hate me so much?

Babe: I don't hate you. Look, I'll take a lie detector test -- anything. I promise --

J.R.: You'll -- you'll fail it.

Babe: No, I won't, J.R.! I know exactly what you did!

J.R.: Think about it, Babe. You did plan to marry me, to find a way to dump me, so you could steal our son.

Babe: But I didnít.

J.R.: Look, Krystal knows. We'll get her polygraph results, too. All of her accusations are bogus. It was just to get custody. She's even got Jamie helping her again.

Babe: What?

Jamie: Oh, God, how desperate are you?

Babe: Oh, you can't get away with this.

J.R.: This is exactly what I was just about to say to you and my brother.

Dixie: J.R. --

J.R.: Why don't you shove off? How about you go back to Europe, maybe -- I don't know -- drive off a mountain? I don't need you.

Erica: J.R., I knew you couldn't hurt Kendall.

Babe: What?

Erica: You've been so close.

Jamie: Babe would never make --

Erica: Would never what? Wake up, Jamie. She's been a baby stealer all her life. You should've been put away so long ago.

Ryan: No, Babe could never have dumped all of that on Kendall. Show us some evidence, J.R.

J.R.: That's exactly what I was just saying. Is there any evidence against me, Chief? There couldn't be. So you're arresting me based on Babeís twisted word?

Adam: Does Babe have any proof?

Krystal: The police believe her. And you know it's true, Adam. That's why you didn't jump to J.R.ís defense. Your first thought was to get your little boy off the hook.

Adam: And I believed you cared about J.R.

Krystal: I do, Adam, I do. Don't you see that? Where is the husband that I thought I could count on? Not the -- the wild man from Crow Hollow, but the man that I learned to love, the strong and loving and caring Adam that I renewed vows with out in that garden?

Adam: He's right here. But the woman I married would never ask me to abandon my son.

Krystal: Huh. That's the way you see it.

Adam: What other way is there?

Krystal: And you want to have a child with me, so you can do to that baby what you did to J.R.?

Adam: J.R.ís a good man.

Krystal: He is a smug, self-important menace, and any woman that would help you create another one like him has got to be out of her mind! The Chandlers -- the Chandlers, they're above the law. They're not bound by the rules of the common man.

Adam: I never said anything like that.

Krystal: Ever since I told you, you're trying to make Babe out to be the bad guy. Do you really think that keeping J.R. from learning the consequences of his actions is a good thing? You think all this is going to make J.R. love you more?

Adam: Itís the duty of a parent to protect his child. I won't apologize for loving J.R.

Krystal: And the rest of us have just got to sit back and watch? Forget the fact that your son tried to murder my daughter? Well, if that's your idea of love, Adam, than you can just stuff it!

J.R.: A vengeful wife is not a very dependable witness.

Erica: Babe's a notorious liar, and she's a kidnapper.

Derek: The case is still under investigation.

J.R.: So that's enough evidence for arrest?

Dixie: No --

Derek: But I'm taking you in. Let's go.

J.R.: Well, I guess you don't appreciate your job very much. Listen, I would like your word that my son will still be around when I'm released.

Tad: You're not helping your case.

J.R.: I know Jamieís the number-one son. I just want to make sure that you're not going to help him and Babe with fake IDs this time.

Tad: Just go with Derek and cooperate.

J.R.: Ok, , I see where your loyalties lie. Erica, until I can get some help from my father, would you please --

Erica: Yeah. Please, Tad, just tell him.

Tad: Nobody's taking Little Adam anywhere.

Jamie: Babe, you did the right thing. J.R. didnít give you a choice.

Erica: Jamie, how in the world could you be taken in by Babeís lies again?

Zach: No, you don't. Not until you tell us what J.R. said to Kendall. My wife could die.

Ryan: And my baby, and we want to know why.

Babe: I --

Ryan: We want to know who's responsible.

Babe: I already told you.

Ryan: No, you told us that J.R. confessed to Kendall, d she can't tell us what he said.

Zach: Fill us in.

Babe: Look, the police have J.R. now. They can handle this.

Ryan: Babe, we have a right to know.

Babe: So, what, you can find a way to get to him and give him your own brand of justice? How about you leave J.R. alone and leave me alone, too?

Jamie: Hey -- hey, come on. Babe's right. Let the police handle it.

Babe: I'm really sorry about what happened to Kendall and her baby. This is my mess with J.R. They never should've gotten dragged into this.

Erica: You just had to try to take over Fusion.

Jamie: That's not what happened. Babe, I'll drive you home.

Babe: Thanks, but I think I need some time by myself.

Erica: Even if she didn't actually do it, she's using this tragedy to frame J.R. She would do anything to get that little boy.

Julia: Dr. Solomon needs to see you right away.

J.R.: You know, don't bother locking it. You'll just have to open it in a few minutes, anyway.

Derek: Oh, we've had this suite reserved for you for a long time.

J.R.: Oh, yeah? Why is that?

Derek: That business with Amanda -- run down by your car?

J.R.: Yeah, Babe behind the wheel.

Derek: No, Babeís not taking the fall for you this time. You're on your own.

Adam: Open the cell.

Derek: We like to keep our perps behind bars.

Adam: Well, then let me inside.

Derek: What's right about this picture? Enjoy.

J.R.: All right. All right, just get it over. Give me the lectures about the evil of drink and how Krystal seduced you to the other side.

Adam: I'm on your side, J.R. I always have been.

J.R.: Well, that's good, because I need you right now, Dad.

Adam: Ok, I'll get you out of here.

J.R.: I love Babe. This is how she repays me? You were right all along. Now -- now we're going to play it your way.

Adam: What way is that?

J.R.: Flat out to win. No mercy.

Dr. Solomon: There's a significant increase in Kendallís intracranial pressure.

Erica: I'm sorry?

Dr. Solomon: The pressure could force your daughter's brain into her brain stem. Brain function would cease. But we could maintain body function artificially until she delivers the baby.

Erica: You mean my daughter would be dead, but she would have the baby?

Dr. Solomon: Yes.

Erica: But you can relieve the pressure, can't you?

Dr. Solomon: We have a drug that will reduce the pressure.

Ryan: And then after that, then she would -- she would be all right?

Dr. Solomon: The drug is not FDA approved for pregnant women. While it will address Kendallís ICP problem, it could also severely reduce her systemic blood pressure.

Erica: And -- and what would that do to her?

Dr. Solomon: It would reduce the blood flow to the placenta, compromising the baby.

Erica: You want us to choose.

Ryan: If we don't treat Kendall, then she dies, but you'd be able -- I mean, the baby could go full term and live. But if Kendall receives treatment, then the baby could die.

Dr. Solomon: We'd take the baby before administering the drug to Mrs. Slater.

Ryan: But I thought Dr. Mayer didn't want to take the baby for, like, another two weeks.

Dr. Solomon: We no longer have that option.

Erica: How long does my daughter have?

Dr. Solomon: I can't promise anything. Her condition could deteriorate at any moment. Maybe we can wait a day, two at the most. If you decide that nothing should be done, we'll make sure Mrs. Slater is comfortable. But if you decide on treatment, let us know as soon as you can. We want to administer the drug as soon as possible.

Kendall's voice: What's going on, Zach? Why won't you come to me? Please, Zach, help me.

Tad: Dixie? Wait.

Dixie: Listen, you should just go to the police station, all right? He doesn't want to be with me, but somebody needs to be there.

Tad: What about our child?

Dixie: Just talk to J.R., ok? He needs help.

Tad: What about our child?

Dixie: J.R. is in a --

Tad: Kate. Is Kate alive?

Dixie: Why are you bringing up Kate?

Tad: Because I saw Greg Madden today. You never told me that he was your obstetrician.

Dixie: What did he tell you?

Tad: That you were -- you were having a hard time accepting the fact of Kateís death.

Dixie: Huh.

Tad: So much so that you're convinced somehow that she's still out there, that you've been harassing him for information, that you've been stalking him, even though he can supply a death certificate. Now, we both know that that man is nothing if not a liar, but I want to hear it from you. Do you really think our daughter is alive?

Erica: Did Dr. Solomon get through to you? If we don't take the baby now by Cesarean, if we cannot give Kendall the medication that she needs, she'll be brain-dead. But she doesn't have to be. Kendall can live. Kendall can recover.

Zach: Kendall told me she wants this baby more than life itself. She wouldn't want him taken early.

Erica: Zach, this shouldn't just be your call. Kendall is my daughter. I love her. I -- I just want what's best for her.

Zach: I'm honoring your daughter's wishes.

Erica: So Zach just takes Kendall away and romances her on the yacht and -- and gets her to marry him in some quickie ceremony, and that gives him a right over her life? Ryan, I don't have the legal right to save Kendall, but you do. It's up to you to say what the -- the medical course of action should be with the baby. If you tell them to take the baby now, then they can give Kendall the medication that she needs.

Ryan: My legal rights as a father allow me not to protect my son.

Erica: No, I don't -- I don't mean it like that. I don't want to lose the baby either, of course not. But no one has said that the baby will die.

Ryan: Except the odds.

Erica: Yes, the baby is -- is a preemie, and, of course, we would -- we would rather wait until the baby is more developed. But -- but preemies even of one pound survive, and this hospital has a state-of-the-art neonatal unit. But if we don't do this, Kendall will die.

Ryan: Erica, Zach is sure that Kendall would choose to save the baby.

Erica: Who knows what or even if she ever said anything to Zach? And I'm sorry, I will not just take Zachís word for it.

Ryan: Well, we weren't there, we didn't hear what she said. He was, and he believes --

Erica: Zach -- Zach believes? I don't give a damn what Zach believes or what Zach thinks he believes! And you cannot risk Kendallís life because what she supposedly said to him!

Kendall's voice: Zach, I'm so glad you're here. Tell me what's happening. How is Spike? Is he all right?

Zach: I'm making sure that Spike gets all the time he needs. I want you with me. We did this your way, now let's do it my way. Open your eyes and come back to me.

Jamie: Hey. Are you ok?

Julia: Oh, yeah, I'm fine.

Jamie: Um -- nobody is fine tonight.

[Julia sighs]

Julia: I just wish Kendall would scream at me. I wish she'd launch a bedpan at my head or banish me from her room. If somebody told me a year ago that I would give a damn what happened to Kendall, I wouldn't have believed them. But this is just so wrong. It -- it sucks!

Jamie: Hey.

[Julia sobs]

Ryan: I can't believe that Zach would risk Kendallís life to save the baby if it wasn't what she'd want.

Erica: I don't believe you would back Zach. Are you saying that you -- you plan to let Kendall die? I think that you are going to spend a very long life remembering that you helped kill Kendall. And I know that you are going to regret it with every breath you take.

Adam: They haven't arraigned you yet. There's still time to make these charges go away.

J.R.: No, that's going to cost a bundle.

Adam: No, money won't help. You can't bribe Babe.

J.R.: Well, then you lean on her, and you lean on her hard.

Adam: Son, the only person who can make Babe change her mind is you. You have to -- you have to talk to her, you have to explain --

J.R.: You want me to suck up to that lying slut?

Adam: You -- you scared the hell out of her, J.R. She's -- she's not thinking straight.

J.R.: No, no one can talk to Babe. She's too stupid to listen.

Adam: She's obviously lost sight of some of the things you've been through.

J.R.: Oh, it's too late for her.

Adam: She meant well with that family meeting. Together, you guys can get through this. You'll take care of each other.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, yeah, I'll take care of Babe. She's got nothing on me. It's her word against mine. I'm as good as free.

Adam: J.R., a while ago, you and Babe were planning a life together. Think about Little Adam.

J.R.: I am. He deserves better than Babe.

Adam: I want you two to forgive each other, and to move on.

J.R.: What, you're -- you're preaching forgiveness to me? You're the one who wanted me to kick her to the street.

Adam: I was wrong. I was dead wrong! J.R., do you remember the day in the garden with the wedding -- you and Babe, Krystal and I? It was obvious that Babe loves you very much.

J.R.: Did Babe get to you? Or did that whore of a mother of hers work you over between Kamasutra moves?

Adam: Don't push your luck by insulting my wife.

J.R.: Yeah, well, whatever. I'll just keep thinking about Babe -- how we're going to stop her, and how much we're going to make her suffer.

PA Announcer: Dr. Smith, call your office. Dr. Smith, call your office.

Kendall: You still hanging around here, Ryan? Come on, get a life.

Ryan: You're all right.

Kendall: Well, you tell me.

Ryan: But -- but they said that you could die.

Kendall: Gotcha. Serves you right for playing dead on me. Now we're even. So what were you thinking just now? A way to honor me, maybe a new wing for the hospital? "The Kendall Pavilion for pains in the neck and aching hearts." Uh-uh. It won't be the way you think it will. I am one of a kind. Like it or not, there will never be anybody else like me.

[Kendall laughs]

Kendall: When are you going to get that?

Zach: I didn't just marry you. I married the whole package, and Spike is a big part of that package -- well, he's the most important part of that package. So Erica doesn't get the last word, it's yours. Your decision.

Kendall's voice: Your voice is different, softer. Zach, are you scared? Are you touching me? I can't feel you now. Is this dying? Am I dying?

Zach: We'll never get to practice breathing for the big day, so maybe we should practice that now. So keep breathing and come back to us. Spike needs you to be here. Because if I --

Julia: Thanks. I'm ok.

Jamie: You're sure?

Julia: Yeah, I'm better.

Jamie: Ok, only if you're sure?

Julia: Mm-hmm. I better get back to work.

Jamie: Ok, I'm -- ahem -- glad I could be of some help.

Julia: You were.

PA Announcer: Dr. Greenspan to OR. Dr. Greenspan.

Babe: J.R. knows if I say I didn't plan to marry him to get custody of Little A, the needle on the lie detector test -- it's going to be bouncing all over the paper. "Lie, lie, lie!" And, yes, that was the plan a while ago, but the thing is that I married him because I love him.

Krystal: Sweetheart, I am so sorry.

Babe: Why is it that some guys -- they drink, and they kill brain cells and their minds turn to mush, and then J.R. -- he just gets more devious and smart?

Krystal: Well, they arrested him, and it shows that they believe you.

Babe: It's not going to stick. Come on, it's his word against mine, and my word --

Krystal: Your word is plenty good, Babe.

Babe: Mama, he is a Chandler, a wealthy Chandler --

Krystal: A weaselly --

Babe: Exactly -- a Chandler.

Krystal: And you can afford your own good lawyers now, Babe, and with Fusion, you are a respected business person. You're not some person just working the drive-through window. And let me tell you something. If it helps, I'll add my kidnapping charges on top of all those others. We'll keep J.R. locked in a jail cell till the day he dies.

Babe: No, Mama. I want J.R., I don't want to live without him. Oh, God, I will kill him for doing this to me.

Adam: I'm not going to help you hurt Babe or anybody else.

J.R.: I got my head on completely straight here. But you -- it's like you got your stones in Krystalís vice. Look, I'll take care of Babe myself. I was this close. You know what -- don't worry about it.

Adam: This is who you really are, isn't it?

J.R.: Huh. Are you shocked?

Adam: Yeah. No, no, I -- I wanted to blame Dixie or give her credit for this, but, no -- no, I did this, all of it.

J.R.: I'm Chandler through and through. I'm the son that you fought for, so get me out of here, Dad, and we'll go make our plans over a drink at the Valley Inn.

Adam: Son, listen to me, listen to me. What you tried to do is despicable. And you're going to have to deal with the consequences -- alone.

Dixie: I don't know why Madden would tell you all that.

Tad: I don't care. I just want to know about our child.

Dixie: I think it's a terrible story to tell the father of the baby.

Tad: More terrible than the truth?

Dixie: You know, you said that he already has the death certificate. That's tangible proof, so what do you want from me?

Tad: I want your version.

Dixie: Why? You already have Maddenís version -- that I'm a crazy, delusional mother who can't face the truth. So, what -- what if I tell you that Kateís alive? Does that make me nuts? What if I tell you that she's dead? Does that make me sane? What if I tell you what I think is the truth, but it's actually a lie because I'm crazy? What do you think, Tad?

Tad: I think you should stop complicating things and give me the truth.

Dixie: Madden's truth or my truth? I mean, you already said that Maddenís a big liar, right? And what have I been doing but lying for the past four years? So how can you trust either one of us?

Tad: I can't, but I still have to ask the questions --

Dixie: Why don't you just believe what you want to believe? Because that's all you do, anyway.

Tad: Why do you think a man like Greg Madden would lay something like that at my feet?

Dixie: Because he's cruel, because he's crazy, because he wants to hurt me -- maybe all three?

Tad: Maybe -- just maybe -- it makes perfect sense. Dixie, if you really thought that Kate was alive, is that why you were gone for four years?

Dixie: What do you want from me, Tad?

Tad: What do you mean, what do I what? Haven't you been listening?

Dixie: What do you want -- what, do you want to hear that I've completely failed as a mother, not once but twice? That what I've done to J.R. is nothing compared to what I've done to Kate? That I couldn't take care of her? So I completely went off the deep end and spent the last four years of my life in exile, searching for her and atoning for my sins?

Tad: Dixie, is that what happened?

Dixie: Why don't you just think what you want? I don't give a damn.

Adam: Guard? I'm through here.

J.R.: This is -- this is not even funny anymore. Drop the act, Dad.

Adam: You're going to have to get out of this mess by yourself.

J.R.: What? What the hell?

Adam: I love you, J.R.

J.R.: So this is how you show me? You leave me to twist in the wind?

Adam: You're on your own.

J.R.: You listened to them, didn't you? You listened to those whores! You know what? You go back to them! You go back to them! I've already learned everything you've ever taught me anyhow! I don't need you! You hear me? I don't need you!

Krystal: It is not your fault. It's that Chandler that you married. Honey, J.R. wrecked your marriage, not you.

Babe: That's what makes all of this so awful.

[Babe sighs]

Babe: The man I love tried to kill me, Mama. And he would've. J.R. wanted me to disappear. He could live without ever seeing me again.

Ryan: There's never going to be another woman like her. Kendall can't die, Zach. I know you're her husband and her next of kin. But I have custody of our child, and I am going to ok the C-section. She deserves a chance to fight for her life.

Zach: You know the baby might not make it.

Ryan: I can't risk Kendall dying.

Zach: And I can't let you sacrifice the baby to save Kendall.

Ryan: That's not what I want.

Zach: It's not about what you want. It's about what she wants. I will fight you.

Ryan: Do what you have to do.

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

Livia: Do you want Kendall to live?
