Proofread by Gisele
[A woman makes the ultimate sacrifice]
Kendall: We have Ryanís sperm, your eggs, and my womb. I can give it to you.
[And it takes a friendship apart]
Greenlee: My dear, selfless friend isn't carrying my baby with Ryan. She's carrying her own baby with Ryan.
[Pregnant by one man]
Ryan: If you have our son, I'll be here for you, and I'll be here for him.
Kendall: I want to do it. I want to have our baby.
[But in love with another]
Zach: I've fallen in love with you. You are my queen until I die.
Ryan: I love her, and I don't care who she's with.
Kendall: I want my son more than anything else in this entire world.
[Two shocking stories collide]
J.R.: Everything would be perfect if I could just do one more thing.
Adam: What's that?
J.R.: Kill my bride.
Babe: I'm telling the truth. J.R. -- he set me up to kill me and Kendall got hurt instead.
J.R.: I did it, Kendall. Babe was supposed to walk through that door.
Derek: You're under arrest for aggravated assault on an unborn child and the attempted murder of Kendall Hart.
Erica: We either risk the baby's life, or Kendall may never recover.
Zach: I will kill anyone that tries to take Kendallís baby.
Ryan: I've come to join you. We will do this Kendallís way.
[At the boathouse, Babe and J.R. watch each other suspiciously.]
Zach: I hope it wasn't a mistake letting you in here.
Ryan: I've watched her sleep how many times, and it was never like this.
Zach: No, I'm sure it wasnít. You said you changed your mind, you wouldn't try to take the boy before he's ready to survive. Did you mean that or you're just trying to get in here?
Ryan: I'm not here for you, Zach.
Ryan: Kendall? Hey. If -- if you can hear me, the doctors -- the doctors want to help you. They have -- they have a medication that can decrease the pressure in your head, but the problem is that same medication can harm our child. So they want to perform a C-section, they want to take our son as soon as possible, and for your sake, I went to court to make that happen.
Zach: It's time to go.
Ryan: I was wrong, Kendall. No one will take our son from you, no one. Spike will not be born until he has every chance, every -- every chance that you fought for, that you earned, and I swear to that.
Zach: When did you change your mind?
Ryan: I believe that this is what she wants. I believe that she loves our son and that she would die for him. This is kind of funny, though, isn't it? I mean, it used to drive you kind of crazy that I was so in love with Spike. It was like I was one-upping you or something. And now here you are teaching me how to love our child. How did I miss this? This love and this courage? You are an incredible woman, Kendall, and you're going to be -- you're going to be an incredible mother. I'm on Kendallís side now, Zach. I'm on her side, because she loves our son, and because I'm in love with her.
J.R.: Please, Babe. I -- I just need to know, one way or the other, if you could ever forgive me.
Babe: Are -- are you wasted? Is this some kind of sick joke?
J.R.: No -- no, I just -- it doesn't -- it doesn't have to be right now. I just need to know maybe if you could find it in your heart one day.
Babe: You invited me into a construction site so you could go all Wile E. Coyote on me and drop an anvil on my head. Only Kendall took the hit and she may die. And her baby, an innocent little boy, may not make it because of you, because of your hate and your rage and your booze, J.R.
J.R.: It makes me sick to know that I have that in me.
Babe: Yeah, well, welcome to my world.
J.R.: Look, I can't make it better. I can't undo it, I can't fix it, I can't wish it away, but I'm going to get alcohol treatment, I'm going to get help.
Babe: Until you change your mind. You've given up alcohol before -- before you kidnapped my mama at gunpoint, before you tried to kill me. It just keeps getting worse every time.
J.R.: But that's before I could admit that I needed help. But I know better now.
Babe: Oh. Ok, fine, fine. You get help, you stay on that wagon for days, years -- I don't even care, J.R. but the hate, the way that you think the worst of people -- it's not going to go away. It's a part of you. It may be all you are.
J.R.: That's not true because all of me loves you.
Babe: Oh, God, no. No, shut up! Seriously, I'm so sick of hearing it, and it hurts too much to believe it.
J.R.: I don't want to ever hurt you again, ever again.
Babe: You should've killed me when you had the chance.
J.R.: Oh, don't -- don't say that. I want you alive and well and happy. I need you, Little A needs his mother.
Babe: No, no, do not use him like that. Don't use him to soften me up and make nice. That's obviously what this is all about -- how can J.R. weasel out of this one? You hug, I hug, we both cry together, and then that way, I won't testify at your trial.
J.R.: No, Babe, you're wrong. I just want to love you and protect you.
Babe: No, J.R., never again.
[Julia interrupts a romantic tryst between Josh and another nurse.]
Josh: Dude, turn off the light and shut the door with you on the side of it.
Julia: Dude, how about not?
Nurse: I was just -- um -- I have to -- bye.
Josh: Well, here it comes -- nurse buzz-kill on the attack. "The on-call room is for serious medical professionals, not to be used by -- well, for inappropriate contact of a sexual nature," right?
Julia: Could you be a bigger pig? "Oh, cool -- I got time for coffee and a quickie. Quick, bring me a latte and a nurse, stat." There are people here who are healing and suffering and dying, and it's all you can do to squeeze a little work into your personal sex schedule? You are an embarrassment.
Josh: I'll blow off steam my way. You blow it off yours. Hmm.
Julia: You know, this is not your personal shag pad where you can get your schwing on, you hear me? You know, if you want to play big, honking stud, you can just do it on your own --
Jamie: Oh --
[Julia is pleasantly surprised when Jamie emerges from his shower and bumps into her wearing only a towel, a big smile, and lots of well-built muscles.]
Aidan: Oh, don't tell me.
Aidan: Oh, come on, Norma, don't play hard to get right now.
Erin: Whoa, "Norma"? Are you talking to your car as Norma?
Erin: Oh, that's hot. That's sexy, Aidan -- you and your sweetie pie.
Aidan: Don't listen to her, Norma. She's just jealous, because you're a classic, and she's fresh off the lot.
Erin: Thank you, I think.
Aidan: Come on. Great. You see what you've done? You've gone and hurt her feelings.
Erin: Well --
Aidan: So excuse me while I get out and sweet-talk her.
Erin: Yeah, sure, you just -- you lay on the guilt. If I apologize, can we go, maybe?
Aidan: Uh -- thank you, but you've done enough.
Erin: What, are you afraid I'm going to make it worse?
Aidan: She's popped a loose hose.
Erin: Oh --
Aidan: It's all right, don't worry. I can handle it.
Erin: No, no, no.
Aidan: I'll get a rag.
Erin: You know what? I got us into this mess, I can get us out.
Bianca: Your Auntie Kendall has been sick, and I've been trying to help her feel better.
Miranda: That's ok.
Bianca: It'll be ok. Can you do something for me? Can you pray for your aunt? Do you remember how we do that? And she'll be ok. All right. It's so nice out, but I think it's time to go home, we'll get you something to eat. And then we can have some more play time, maybe with your Aunt Opal. What do you think? Everything gathered -- Miranda? Miranda!
Krystal: Don't worry, I got her.
Bianca: Oh, God!
Krystal: I got her.
Bianca: Oh, thank God. Sweetie.
Ryan: I love her. I love everything about her.
Zach: And not just as the mother of your child. Is that what you want me to know?
Ryan: I want you to know that if I could go back, if I could find a way to get her back and make her my wife instead of yours --
Zach: She almost was, more than once.
Ryan: She loves you, and she wants you, and you make her happy -- something I wasn't very good at. I would give her the world if I could. But what I can give her is a chance for our son, and if she -- if she wakes up -- I mean, it took me a while, but I -- I get it now. I was trying -- I was trying to save her, because I love her. And -- I mean, I knew better. But Kendall is -- is Kendall, and you can't change her. You can't try to change her. All you can do is you can -- you can trust her, and you -- and I didn't do that when you said this is what she would want, she would want her son's life over hers. And I get it now. Our son is safe, Kendall.
Kendall's voice: I hear you, Ryan. Then I donít. You're fading on me. Something's wrong.
J.R.: Something in me is broken. But I know how to fix it now. I know that I was wrong.
Babe: So was I -- the day of our wedding when I believed that you would love and trust me. You swore that you would stand by me no matter what. Lies right to my face in front of God and everyone else. All you did was test me. No matter what I did, I could never pass. You never opened your heart to me, you just conned me into thinking that you did.
J.R.: That's not true. There were days from our wedding --
Babe: Oh, that's good, that's really good. Days, J.R. Days when our marriage wasn't a complete joke. Look, I -- I admit it. I've screwed up, I lied, I tried to protect us from the mistakes that I made, but at least I always knew we were real. I never tried to kill you.
J.R.: Don't you think I know how screwed up I am?
Babe: What are you talking about? You love it. You're J.R. Chandler, Mr. Destructo-man himself. Let's see, who can you go after today, get some revenge, payback, because that's how you get off, isn't it?
J.R.: Oh, that's fine, just -- you know, you can -- you can yell at me. Come on, you can yell at me!
Babe: You know what, J.R.?
J.R.: I deserve it!
Babe: Can't even hire a hit man? You can't even do that, can you? You got to be up close and personal when you try to kill your wife. You're right --
J.R.: Things are different! Babe!
[Losing her balance, Babe falls into the water.]
J.R.: Babe! Hang on! It's all right, it's all right. I got you, I got you.
Babe: This is your chance, J.R. No witnesses, just you and me. You can either help me up or push me under.
Bianca: Miranda, honey, you can't run off like that. Please don't do that ever again. I was so worried.
Krystal: Doesn't it just drive you crazy? I mean, you turn your back for one second and they -- they pull a Houdini. What am I doing, talking mama talk when I'm sure you probably want me to pull a vanishing act. Well, don't worry, I'm -- I'm gone. I'm just glad you two are doing so well.
Bianca: Krystal? Thank you.
Krystal: No. Don't -- don't thank me. No, not for bringing you your little girl a few feet back in your arms a few years too late. I don't even know if you want to -- want to hear this, but I am sorry. I'd take it all back if I could.
Bianca: But you can't.
Krystal: True. All that because Babe loved J.R. and now --
Bianca: And now she says that J.R. tried to kill her.
Krystal: That'll teach me for trying to wrestle fate into a full Nelson. You can't pin that down. Can't be done.
Bianca: It's not -- it's not another scam, right? This isn't Babe making things up? He really did try to kill her?
Krystal: And Babe loved J.R. so much. I'm just so scared what's going to happen next.
J.R.: Look, you're soaked. We have to -- we have to get you warm, we have to get you home.
Babe: You're good, J.R. -- the jacket, the phony concern. When your tail's on the line, you sure know how to work a girl. But you obviously weren't thinking straight, because this right here -- me going "Glug, glug" -- that was your chance of getting rid of the star witness at your attempted-murder trial. What, was it just too easy? Is that why you blew it?
J.R.: Stop it. I love you. I love you. I don't want you dead. I don't want to kill you. When I think about you not in my life -- look, I did a sick, evil thing. I almost took you away from our son.
Babe: Wasn't that the point -- to save Little A from one of the nasty mothers of the world?
J.R.: Look, I'm never going to stop regretting it as much as I pay.
Babe: Oh, come on, you were in jail for less than a week. You weaseled your way out of that, you'll weasel your way out of a conviction. It's what you do -- you lie, you cheat, you blackmail. Chandler magic -- it's what you do best, and you're a pro. Oh -- what?
J.R.: Read it.
Babe: Did you find your way out already?
J.R.: Just read it!
J.R.: Do you believe me now?
Aidan: Oh, there we go. The patched hose should last until we get to a service station. No harm done.
Erin: Oh, no. No, I just almost murdered your car, leaving us stranded in the middle of nowhere. No harm done. Did I tell you how sorry I am? Did I tell both of you?
Aidan: Yeah, you did, about 23 times, but then again, who's counting, hose killer?
Erin: Stop it! I already feel bad enough as it -- oh --
Erin: Ha! Ha-ha-ha!
Aidan: C'est la vie.
Erin: Ha! Ha!
Aidan: Oh, man, a flat tire. We must've gone over a nail when we came off the road.
Erin: Yeah, tire killer.
Aidan: How mature are you?
Erin: I -- oh, you want to see mature? Ooh, I will show you mature. I will change that tire for you. Yeah, because you know what? I may suck at hoses, but I rock at tires.
Aidan: No, get back away from the car, all right?
Erin: What --
Aidan: You're not doing anything.
Erin: Aidan --
Aidan: You're bad luck.
Erin: No, you step away. I want to prove to you that I'm not a complete and total idiot.
Aidan: Hey --
Erin: Oh, God --
Erin: Oh, please tell me it's not -- please tell me it's not --
Aidan: Broken? Nah, it's ok. Look. It's fine.
Erin: Oh, my God, what is wrong with me? I'm -- I'm like a walking upside down horseshoe. I'm -- I'm complete bad luck.
Aidan: Well, you're on edge.
Erin: No, I'm an idiot.
Aidan: Your brother is in a city with a girl that can't stand red, can't stand loud noises, or being in a crowd. Of course, you're going to be a little bit anxious, aren't you?
Aidan: Come here. It's going to be all right.
Erin: But we can't find them with a flat tire and a broken jack, so -- so what now?
Aidan: Um -- well, how are you at lifting cars?
Julia: And -- and Josh just smiles, you know, like -- like it's ok that he uses the on-call room, a room that anybody who's on break or, you know, or off duty should be able to use, and he uses it as his own personal --
Josh: "Personal shag pad." Yeah, we already heard. Martin, if you get the urge to get your schwing on, a box of protection, bottom drawer. Later.
Jamie: It's safe to turn around now.
Julia: This was a bad idea.
Jamie: Turning around?
Julia: Uh -- taking a break. Who needs one? Huh.
Julia: I have to get back to Kendall.
Jamie: You've been with her nonstop since she got here.
Julia: No, not nonstop.
Jamie: What, you took a break I don't know about?
Julia: When Zach wouldn't let anybody in the room.
Jamie: And you sat outside the door until he did, so no more. You're off duty whether you like it or not.
Julia: Well, if I'm off duty, I can do whatever I want, and what I want to do is I want to go back to Kendall --
Jamie: Yeah, whatever. Come on, let's go. Come on.
Julia: I'm coming, I'm coming.
Ryan: Does that answer your question? Do you believe now that I want what Kendall wants?
Zach: According to you, it doesn't matter what I think, but what she thinks. And you're right.
Kendall's voice: Zach? Ryan? Why are you so far away?
Ryan: Spike will have her fight.
Zach: Grab on to life and not let go.
Kendall's voice: It's not you, it's me. I'm fading. I don't want to leave you. I don't think I can --
Ryan: What is that? What?
Zach: Kendall, stay with us.
Ryan: What do we do? What do we do?
[Pounding on door]
Zach: Get in here.
Ryan: What is that? What -- what is that monitor? Is it her heart?
Dr. Solomon: She hasn't arrested.
Josh: It's the ICP monitor. Her cranial pressure has reached critical.
Dr. Solomon: Her brain could herniate at any second. We have to administer the drug to bring down the swelling.
Zach: No, it's going to compromise the baby if he's still with her.
Ryan: Has that changed?
Josh: No, what's changed is this, Ryan. If you don't make a decision, we lose Kendall now.
Ryan: So we got to give Kendall the drug --
Zach: The ICP level won't drop on its own?
Josh: The court gave you the right. You need to decide now.
Dr. Solomon: ORís on standby for the C-section. You give the ok, we get your son, give your wife the drug, give them both a chance. Otherwise --
Ryan: I know, I know the "otherwise."
Zach: It's not an option. I want them both.
Josh: It's not your call, Slater. He's got the court order.
Zach: He gave me his word.
Josh: Do you not hear that alarm? Blood is building in Kendallís brain.
Ryan: It's been spelled out for us, ok?
Josh: But now you have a choice. He doesn't have a gun to you. Make the call.
[The urgent voices of those around her fade away as Kendall is enveloped in a white light.]
Julia: Oh, yes! It's so beautiful and it's not the hospital. Oh.
Jamie: This is your idea of time off -- you, me, half naked in freezing-cold water? Gee, that sounds fun.
Julia: Oh, I'm sorry. You just took a shower and got your hair all nice and clean. Well, I suppose we could go get a burger. Oh -- unless you're afraid of getting ketchup on your nice shirt?
Jamie: Oh. That's it.
Jamie: Do you just plan to watch me, Keefer?
Julia: I'm not into spectator sports.
Jamie: Well, then I suggest you strip.
Jamie: So are we going to do this, or what?
Julia: Oh, yeah, we're going to do this.
[When Jamie removes his shirt and pants, Julia follows suit, until theyíre both standing on the beach in their underwear.]
Erin: Got the last bolt off. You ok?
Aidan: Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm pretty impressed, actually. You got fast hands.
Erin: Yeah, well, you should see me make a --
Erin: Decaf capp, triple-shot espresso --
Aidan: Quick, quick!
Erin: Light mocha frappe -- ok, got it. Ok. Ok.
Aidan: Just get those bolts on that spare so it's safe enough to let the jack down, all right?
Erin: Yeah, yeah. Ok, nice tire, let's just --
Erin: There we go! You got it! We're good! Yes!
Aidan: Damn. It's fantastic. We make a good team. Well done. Oh, you're the best.
Erin: You're the best.
Aidan: We'd work in pit crew, Indianapolis 500.
Aidan: You got grease on your face.
[Air hisses out of the tire]
Erin: Aidan, what's that --
Erin: That hissing? No, no!
J.R.: It's the real deal. It's a plea agreement with the DA. I signed it right after that eye-opening tour with Uncle Stuart.
Babe: It says that you pled guilty to all the charges. That's impossible.
J.R.: You don't have to go on the stand anymore, Babe. Nobody else has to get dragged into this mess. No trial, no jury. Just prison.
Babe: But you're right here.
J.R.: Until sentencing. And then after that --
Babe: Signed and witnessed.
J.R.: I wouldn't believe me, either, if I were you. So you can call the DA yourself and confirm everything.
Babe: This isn't like you.
J.R.: No, it's not. The old J.R. would probably get in Derekís face, call the governor, try to pin it on somebody else. But I don't want to be the old J.R. anymore. It's killing me. I want to take responsibility for what I did to you, to Kendall. I mean, my God, her baby? I did that. I want to change. I want to change so badly. I want to be someone that you can love again.
Bianca: Babe will be ok.
Krystal: What a mama will do for her child, huh?
Bianca: There are limits.
Krystal: Oh, I hear you.
Bianca: Right now, Kendall is -- is pushing those limits. Anything for her -- her child.
Miranda: I want another thing.
Bianca: I'll get you something. Anything for Spike, even her own life.
Krystal: It just doesn't get any rougher. But it does my heart good to see you doing such a great job. You know what? You two -- you two take care, and I'm praying for Kendall.
Bianca: Thank you.
Miranda: I want a toy. Oh, yeah --
Bianca: We're going to go home, and you're going to be with all your toys.
Kendall: Spike? My baby? My baby?
Ryan: Kendall, he's perfect, thanks to you.
Zach: [Echoes] We did this for you. It's what you wanted -- protecting his life with yours.
Kendall: [Echoes] What's happening? Why can't I see my baby?
Zach: You're not taking the boy until we're certain he will survive.
Ryan: You tell me my son will survive, and then we can move on. Can you make that promise?
Dr. Mayer: At this moment, the odds are not in the child's favor.
Ryan: Then there's the answer.
Dr. Mayer: But we cannot make a promise like that, no doctor can.
Zach: I made a promise to my wife. The boy stays where he is.
Kendall's voice: You're all so scared, so frightened. I'm about to die, aren't I?
Erin: I'm fabulous. My brother and his autistic girlfriend have been spotted in New York, and because I'm a raging klutz, we can't even get to them for 60-90 minutes until the roadside service gets to us. So, great. Great. All hail talented me!
Aidan: Hey, hey, hey, come on, come on, don't be like that. We'll find them, all right? We will get to them. Just a little bit delayed, that's all.
Erin: It's not even them, Aidan. I mean -- I mean, of course, I'm worried about them, but you and me, I -- you have no idea.
Aidan: Yeah, I think you're right about that -- I have no idea. Care to fill me in?
Erin: I can count on you. You never let me down. And everything you've done for Jonathan --
Aidan: But what have I done for Jonathan? I mean, I just looked out for him, that's all. I damn well better be because he's your family, he's your brother, and he's part of you, and I love you.
Erin: You love me?
Erin: Me? Erin Lavery -- formerly world's oldest virgin --
Erin: Never had sex, never been in love? I mean, those words didn't even make sense to me until I met you. And you love me. Wow. And I love you, Aidan. I love you.
J.R.: We have to get you changed.
Babe: I don't care about the cold or the wet. J.R., you're -- you're pleading guilty to attempted murder. Is this what you want for our son?
J.R.: I don't want to leave you. I don't want to leave our son. I wish to God that I could have a life with both of you. But I don't want Little A knowing that his father was a homicidal drunk, and I don't want to see that look in your eyes anymore.
Babe: What look?
J.R.: The sadness. That emptiness like you've lost hope for me, for both of us. You know, my whole life, I never knew how to do the right thing. But now I do. This is what I have to do.
Babe: It'll be years, J.R.
J.R.: How great was that day? Our wedding and our son's birthday all in one, celebrating our love and our family. I thought it was going to last forever, but it didn't, because of me. No, it's way too much and way too soon to ask for forgiveness. But when I leave, I want you to take care of yourself, ok? I want you to move on with your life, and I want you to tell Little Adam that I love him. And I want you guys to have an amazing life together. And I'll sign papers, Babe. I'll sign the divorce papers. I'll sign over custody to you, because you're going to be great. You're going to be great at raising our son, way better than I ever could.
Babe: No, J.R., stop it. No.
[Music plays as Aidan and Erin make out in the car.]
Jamie: Oh. Oh, that --
Julia: Oh. Oh.
Jamie: Was awesome.
Jamie: It was fire and ice on your skin at the same time.
Julia: Oh, you should try it in January, it's even a bigger rush. Reminds you you're alive.
Jamie: It's pretty scary that you forget.
[Jamie and Julia kiss on the sand.]
J.R.: Please. Look, I'm sorry for whatever I said. I -- I should just -- I should just walk away, leave you alone.
Babe: No. I can't even imagine my life without you, nor our son without his father. It's hard. It's harder than I ever thought it would be. I just don't want to let you go.
Kendall's voice: Is this where I say good-bye? Can you hear me? Will you know I love you? Will you know I didn't want to leave you?
Zach: Hey, Kendall? Ryan and I just did what you wanted us to do -- we protected Spike. It wasn't easy, but we got it done. So now it's your turn to pay up. Time to open your eyes. Come on. Keep fighting, come back to me.
Ryan: Listen to your husband, Kendall. Listen to the man that loves you more than you'll ever know. Come back.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam (to J.R.): There's still time to get out of this. Tell the police it was all a mistake.
Tad: Is it true that you adopted a baby girl through Dr. Madden?
Dr. Brewster: Yeah, Little Kathleen, just about to turn 4.
Erica (to Greg): You're the baby genius. You will save Kendall and her baby.
