Lily: Jonathan, you came for me. No --
Man: Whoa -- sorry.
Lily: Don't touch, don't touch. Don't touch, don't touch. Don't touch, don't touch. Jonathan. Aidan?
Tad: Oh, darling. You know, when J.R. was just a little boy, I caught him stealing some money from my wallet. It wasn't a lot, you know, it wasn't a big deal, but I had to punish him. So I told him he was grounded, and he was furious. As corny as it sounds, all I can remember saying is, "Well, I'm sorry, but this hurts me more than it hurts you."
Babe: I haven't gotten the chance to use that one on Little A yet.
Tad: I'm not talking about Little Adam. Hell, I know that J.R. didnít believe me, and he certainly wouldn't believe you now. Not after you handed down his punishment. But what's true is true. You're in more pain than he is.
Babe: How do you deal when -- when you try to save the person that you love and you failed?
J.R.: Get her out of here. Come on, talk about "cruel and unusual punishment."
J.R.: If you're here to lecture me, save
your breath. You lost that privilege when you took off for
J.R.: Believe me, I don't like it.
Julia: Hello? Is someone in there?
Erica: Where's Zach?
Ryan: Slater? Are you in there?
Ryan: It's not -- it's not moving. I don't know, he must've barricaded it.
Erica: Zach? I understand if you need to
spend a few more minutes alone with
[Pounding on door]
Ryan: Ok, ok --
Erica: Zach --
Ryan: It's ok. Zach, we both want what's
Zach: You think this is about who gets to be the good guy?
Ryan: I understand why you're doing it. I've been there, lying beside -- sitting beside the woman that you love, feeling helpless.
Zach: No, don't tell me how to feel, please.
Zach: I gave her my word, and I'm keeping
it! Spike needs more time. And if you don't want to save your son, I'll do it
for you. So no one's coming in here and taking
Erica: By that time,
Babe: I've been sitting here picturing J.R.ís trial for attempted murder.
Tad: Yeah. I know what you mean. It's not going to be pretty.
Babe: I'm going to have to stand up there in front of God and the whole world and tell them that my husband -- he hates me so much he tried to kill me.
Tad: That's J.R.ís fault, not yours.
Babe: Yeah, but I'm going to have to live knowing that I sent the man that I love to prison. Knowing that I took away my son's father, I gave up on him.
Tad: No, you didnít. J.R. is in that cell because of J.R. and only J.R. He's the one that got drunk, he's the one that went to Fusion and set the trap. You had to accuse him to save yourself. I mean, how can you go through the rest of your life every day, knowing that youíre at risk? How could you do that to Little Adam? What else is there?
Babe: You don't have to talk sense into me. I did the right thing, I know it. It still doesn't make it any easier, it doesn't make it hurt any less.
Tad: It's because you still love him. In spite of everything he's done, you still love him. And it's hard to walk away from the love of your life.
Babe: Oh, God, it was so much easier when I did the wrong thing. I felt guilty, but justified. "I did the right thing" -- at least, that's what I told myself. Oh, God. So why is it now when -- when the most important thing is protecting my child that I can't even begin to sort anything out in my head? Why does it hurt so bad when I know I'm doing the right thing?
J.R.: Do you think coming here was the right decision? Do you even think that I want to hear a word you have to say?
J.R.: Well, there isnít.
J.R.: Oh, please. Don't think that some I-love-yous are going to cut it. Did you love me when you took off? Don't talk to me about love. Your love is a lie.
Jonathan: Aidan, you can't be here.
Aidan: No choice, Jonathan. Ok, we all want Lily to be safe, and if you manage to find her, we're going to --
Jonathan: You're going to what? You -- you'll grab her and send her home. You're -- you're using me right now, Aidan, as bait so that -- that when Lily feels safe, then you'll -- no, just get out of here. Ok, then Lily doesn't want to go home. She wants to be with me, Aidan.
Aidan: Listen -- listen, Jonathan, Jack is crazed over Lily being missing. If we can bring her back now, we can stop Jack from -- from trumping up charges and tossing you in jail.
Jonathan: I -- I didn't tell Lily to get out of the train here.
Aidan: Yeah, I know that, but Jack doesnít.
Jonathan: Well, then you go to
Aidan: Well, it's a hell of a big city, and we're better off -- we got a better chance of finding her if we work together.
Jonathan: Lily's lost right now, Aidan, and you're just -- you're just getting in my way, ok? So -- so don't follow me, ok? I have to find -- Lily! No, Lily, no! Lily, no!
[Sirens wail as Lily, disappointed at seeing Jonathan with Aidan, runs away from them.]
Jonathan: Lily? Lily? Lily, no! Lily!
Zach: This is
Erica: Zach, I know
Julia: Well, if Zach won't come out of there, we'll have to find another way.
Ryan: Zach? You know it's not like I want this to happen.
Zach: Well, we agree on something.
Ryan: Yes, we do.
Zach: It shouldn't be our decision.
Ryan: No, it shouldnít.
Zach: Well, then call off the Caesarian
until your son is ready. The judge didn't order you to take the baby. He gave
you the right to decide, the right to give
Erica: Do it, Ryan. Give Zach your word on anything he wants. Once we're in there, then we can do what we need to do, and we'll get security.
Ryan: I can't -- I can't give him my word on something and then change it later.
Erica: Why? Why not? This is a man who has
no regard for law or morality or
Ryan: We're talking about my son here,
Erica: Not if she dies.
Zach: Come on, man. Come in here and do it
Ryan: I can't promise you anything, Zach.
Tad: It hurts when the people we love change. It's like you don't even recognize them anymore. It's as if you lost your future -- at least a future you thought you were going to have with them.
Babe: You know the last time that I was in this court with J.R. was for the custody fight? And I thought that I had lost everything that I had ever wanted. But then I got it back again -- our "Together forever."
Babe: J.R. used to say that you and
Babe: And I actually thought on our wedding day that we had it, too.
Tad: So did I. I still remember the way he
looked. I thought at least I'd get to keep that memory forever -- until
J.R.: Where do you get off calling me a disappointment?
J.R.: And guess what -- the guy I am today is who I am, like it or not. You know, a lot's happened since you died, Mom. If you don't like what you see, why'd you come back at all?
J.R.: What, yell at you for ditching us?
J.R.: Yeah, well, stuff happens when people betray you. I guess I'm 0-2 for that one.
J.R.: And act like you? An adult? Hmm.
J.R.: Oh, well, you must've really bought Babeís "Gang up on J.R." party. You took their sides. You took their sides over your own son.
J.R.: Look, I'm trying to defend myself from Babe. Hmm. Yeah, the one who lied to steal my son away, and you're helping her do it.
Babe: How can you hate someone and love them at the same time?
Tad: Huh. If only I had the answer to that
one. Been kicking around the back of my mind for a while now. I can't stand
Babe: I don't feel like visiting J.R. in jail.
Tad: I'm not talking about visiting him. If he gets his hands on his money, there's a good chance he's going to skate. And you have to decide what you're going to do if J.R. gets free.
Aidan: There's no sign of her.
Jonathan: You have to get out of here, Aidan. She may come back, but if she sees you, she's going to --
Aidan: She's nowhere around. She's -- she got away.
Jonathan: Because of you. You -- you scared her.
Aidan: Jonathan, she was already scared. She's alone in a big city that she doesn't understand.
Jonathan: I could help her, Aidan, if you just would have left us alone.
Aidan: Oh, really? Well, you think you and Lily can live here happily ever after? Oh, come on, Jonathan. Look around. You think you can fix this for her? You think you can make the city quiet? And get rid of all the red and all the people and all the danger? You and I both know that that can't happen.
Jonathan: I just have to find her, Aidan. I just have to make sure that she's safe.
Aidan: I agree. So let's find her right now. But let's do it together.
Jonathan: She -- she saw you, and she ran away. Ok? She thinks that -- that you're going to grab her and take her to Jack, and he's going to send her to that boarding school again. You blew it, Aidan, for both of us. Because now, she -- she doesn't trust me. Now she doesn't trust anybody. She'll see me, and she runs. Now she has no one, Aidan. And that's your fault. Ok? You did that. So, don't know me, Aidan. And don't follow me, don't know me. Me or Lily.
Lily: Was anyone out there looking for me?
Man: Lily, what's got you so upset?
Lily: You were right about Jonathan. He must think I'm in big trouble, because he's working with Aidan now.
Man: Aidan? Who's Aidan?
Lily: Aidan's my ex-boyfriend. He wants to find me and take me home to my dad. And now Jonathan is helping him.
Man: Did Jonathan send you an e-mail, or --
Lily: No, but I -- I saw them. But I ran, because I don't want to go home with them.
Man: You don't have to.
Lily: I don't understand Jonathan now. He
must have made his 180, because he's with Aidan. I have to go to
Man: Yeah, I've got plenty of money now.
Lily: Thank you. Then I really have to go.
Man: Well, but your train doesn't leave till tomorrow morning. What are you going to do, sleep at Penn Station? Do you want to take the chance of Jonathan finding you?
Lily: I guess as long as I'm here, nobody knows where I am.
Man: Yeah, exactly. Now, why don't we have a bite to eat and celebrate your birthday?
Lily: But my birthday was 15 days ago.
Man: And you didn't get to celebrate it, so we'll celebrate late.
Man: I made sure it wasn't red for you.
Lily: Thanks. This is alcohol. The last time I had alcohol, I got really sick.
Man: Ah, it's happened to me, too. This is a different kind of alcohol. Does it look the same as what you drank before?
Man: This'll make you feel good, I promise.
Lily: I'm not allowed.
Man: Aren't you 18? You get to allow yourself now. And this is what adults do.
Joe: Zach, it's Joe Martin. Time to open
the door. Zach, we have other patients. You're interrupting their care, as well
Zach: All I want is for you to leave us alone.
Joe: Can't do that, Zach. It's not an option. I don't want to bring security into it, but I will if I have to.
Zach: People should always do what they have to do, Joe.
Derek: All right, evacuate any unnecessary personnel and visitors.
Ryan: Wait --
Joe: Derek, what's going on here? What are these men doing here?
Ryan: What are you doing here? We thought you were the --
Erica: I called them.
Joe: You -- you did? Without consulting me? We have got our own security here.
Derek: Slater, open up. This is Chief Frye. Let's go, Zach, or I'll have to break the door down.
Zach: Don't do it, Derek. You try this door and someone's going to get hurt. Hey, Derek? Did you bring a SWAT team in here?
Derek: That's right. Let's end this before it gets ugly.
Joe: Derek, you've got to get these men out of here. Look, this is not some third-world country. You don't bring guns into intensive care.
Derek: I can't do that, Joe.
Joe: People on this floor are fighting for their lives. They're frightened.
Derek: This is a hostage situation. Now, please, Joe, step back. I'm sealing off the corridor.
Ryan: What's going on here? One minute we're trying to talk Zach down, the next minute there's like some sort of crazy hostage standoff?
Erica: Someone has to be firm with Zach. He does not have the conscience that you give him credit for.
Ryan: He doesn't want to hurt
Erica: Ryan, if that were true, he would do everything in his power to try to save her life. Instead, he's keeping her in there. He's isolating her from the doctors who are trying to save her.
Ryan: He's trying to give her what we rarely do, Erica -- what she wants.
Erica: Well, you're really sounding like you're on his side.
Ryan: I just -- I can't argue with where
his loyalty lies -- with
Erica: "Loyalty"? Ryan, he is
willing to sit by and let
Joe: The bed's right here in the middle of the room. It's slightly to the left as you come walking in the door.
Ryan: Look, you got to back off. Just -- just get your guys out of here. Just give me a few more minutes with Zach, ok, because this -- it's not a typical hostage situation here, Derek. There's more risk if you break in there. Trust me, I know him. It's not going to work.
Derek: Excuse me, Ryan, but I think we have a little more experience with this than you do.
Ryan: They just got married, Derek. He loves her. He's not a threat to her.
Erica: Ryan, how can you say that? Zach is killing her. He's hurting her every second he keeps her in that room.
J.R.: My own mother thinks that I'm a murderer.
J.R.: Then don't. The bitch is a liar.
J.R.: Oh, you are just like the rest. You immediately think the worst.
J.R.: And when you get hurt, you run away, so who's the bigger coward?
J.R.: I haven't hurt a soul.
J.R.: I can't love somebody that I don't trust.
J.R.: Yeah, she's so brokenhearted, she threw me in the slammer.
Babe: If J.R. walks on this crime, I will take my son, and I'll run. What else can I do?
Tad: There's got to be another answer.
Babe: Do you know what kills me the most about this? Running would only convince J.R. that he was right all along, that the whole time I was out to steal the baby.
Tad: Right now, J.R.ís mind is sort of like a dangerous neighborhood. If I were you, I'd try to stay out of it.
Babe: No, no, you know what? You were
right. It's just like you said about
Tad: Don't say that.
Babe: Seriously, if some higher power doesn't get through to J.R., the man that I love will be lost forever. He'll be a walking, talking ball of hate. And in a way, I'll be killing him just like he tried to kill me.
J.R.: How many times are you going to turn on me? Just like Babe, you make me the big, bad wolf? Does that make you feel better? Is it going to ease your conscience?
J.R.: Babe was after my son. I heard her plotting with my father's wife right outside my bedroom!
J.R.: I didn't do anything to that trash!
J.R.: What are you talking about?
J.R.: You were there? Spying on me?
Jonathan: Just go away, Aidan. I told you
just -- just go back to
Aidan: What are you doing over there?
Jonathan: I'm -- I'm sending Lily an
e-mail telling her I'm not on your side. I'm not going to help you send her
Aidan: You got an e-mail from Lily?
Jonathan: I haven't read it.
Aidan: Well, open it up. What does it say?
Jonathan: I'm not going to let you read my e-mails. You -- you're being nosy just like when Jack took my phone. Just leave me alone.
Aidan: Jonathan, come on, man. You know I can't do that. Isn't it about time you trusted me, man? Come on. Let me have a look at it.
Jonathan: Ok. Ok. Go ahead. You go ahead and read it.
[While Aidan sits down at the computer, Jonathan smacks him over the head with a book, knocking him out.]
Lily: Ow. Stop it. Stop looking at me like that. Ow, my side is hurting. You're so funny.
Man: I wasn't trying to be.
Lily: Well, I'm not so good at jokes, either.
Man: Yeah, I guess I missed this one, too.
Lily: But, you know, the way you're looking at me reminds me of the big fish at my doctor's office.
Man: I don't get it, but I don't care.
Lily: Well, here, let me show you. The eyes are like -- whoa. I feel dizzy. Am I drunk?
Man: Oh, no -- probably just tired.
Lily: Maybe, but I don't feel tired.
Man: Well, your train doesn't leave till the morning. Why don't you lie back and get a little rest?
Lily: Ok. Oh. That does feel better. Are you sure you don't mind?
Man: I don't mind at all.
Jonathan: "Dear Jonathan, this was supposed to be a good-bye e-mail, but in case you've done another 180, and you still want to go to Boston per our original plan, meet me in my hotel. If you don't come, I know it'll be, because I'm too much trouble. But if I'm not too much trouble, then I'll still meet you. The next part is in code, because my dad steals my e-mail like he stole your phone. So, look for me at the hotel with two little lions near the square root of 49 at the hypotenuse of a 30/40 right triangle. Lily." Two little lions. I'm sorry, Aidan.
Derek: The commissioner has ordered me to re-establish control of the premises.
Ryan: And how are you going to do that?
Joe: Derek, we have other patients in rooms right next door.
Derek: We won't use the usual tactics.
Cutting off water or vents would weaken
Joe: Thank God, because that would throw the whole hospital into chaos.
Derek: And we definitely won't use gas,
which would harm
Zach: I spend most of my life avoiding promises. I don't know -- something about you brings it out in me. So I got to make one more. You know, eventually these guys out here -- they're going to take me down. But before all that, I promise you I will fight for every second, every minute, and every hour of this time, so you can have Spike, your dream. I love you.
Derek: Slater? We've got you on numerous charges, starting with kidnapping. Now it's over. I'm giving you three minutes to open this door. If not, we're coming in.
Jonathan: I can't figure out the math. The rest of it I can get it, ok -- a hotel, a hotel with two lions. Ok, a hotel with two lions. Where are you, Lily?
Lily: Thank you for my birthday celebration. You can leave now. Ahem.
Lily: Yes, you have to leave, because I can't sleep with anyone in the same room.
Man: Then maybe we should do something else.
Babe: Once this day is over -- ah, it's permanent. My marriage is over, and my family's gone. Oh. I've been sitting here, hoping for a miracle. But what am I even supposed to do or say about J.R. when Little Adam asks where his daddy is? And what's going to happen when he's released from prison? I mean, is there ever, ever going to be a way to make sense of all this and make peace?
Tad: You know, sometimes if you love somebody too much, I'm not sure that's possible.
J.R.: You were there at the cabin? When I was with Krystal, and you didn't come in?
J.R.: I was never really going to hurt her.
J.R.: So, what's the big deal? I -- I didn't hit her. I missed.
[Pounding on door]
Derek: You have 15 seconds, Slater.
Joe: You can't break down the door in ICU.
Derek: Time's up. Come on, get these people out of here and get into position.
Erica: I'm not going to leave my daughter.
Derek: You'll be safer over here. You'll be safer over here.
[All talking at once]
Derek: All right -- relax.
Ryan: I'm telling you, don't let --
Erica: Derek --
Ryan: Don't let --
Derek: I know what I'm doing.
Ryan: What if they -- what if they break in, and you don't know where she is? Do you realize how delicate --
[As the SWAT men use a ramming rod to
knock down the door to
Ryan: Tell them to stop!
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Ryan (to Zach): If you really want to help
Julia (to Ryan): You want me to try to disarm Zach?
Ryan (to Julia): If the opportunity presents itself.
[When Zach allows Ryan and Julia into
Ryan: Erica! Erica!
Erica (to Zach): You'd better shoot to kill, because that's the only way you'll keep me from my dauughter.
