All My Children Transcript Friday 6/9/06
Proofread by Gisele
Julia: Oh, will you just hold still for two seconds?
Josh: Will you hurry up already? I have things to do.
Julia: You should've been in here hours ago after this first happened. Now that I've got you here, I'm going to be thorough, so just deal with it.
Josh: Listen, I'm the doctor. I know what needs treatment -- a few minor lacerations -- and the bruises will heal on their own. If you want to play Mommy and put bandages on my boo-boos, hurry up so I can get back to the yacht club.
Julia: What for?
Josh: To see if the cops found the maniac who blew up my dad's yacht. Here comes the mad bomber right on cue.
Julia: Hey, hey, hey.
Jamie: You got to be kidding me. You really think I blew up the SS Madden?
Josh: I just can't figure out, were you trying to kill me or my father?
Disguised voice: Good morning, Dr. Madden. Had enough living death? Ready to cooperate?
Tad: Come on, Derek, be honest with me. I mean, first Madden completely vanishes, and now his yacht blows up? You're going to try to tell me that's a coincidence?
Derek: At this point, it's anybody's guess.
Tad: Well, you got to have some idea what you're looking at. I mean, either it's an accident -- like a fuel leak or a faulty engine -- or just plain sabotage.
Derek: Look, until I get the report from Forensics, I'm not making any predictions.
Tad: Just give me a hunch. Just when my day can't get any worse. You're not the nautical type. What are you here to do, work on your tan?
Zach: My tan's fine. What do you know about Maddenís yacht blowing up?
Tad: No, the question is, what do you know about it? Because what I know about it is a guy like you would do something like that to impress Dixie.
Dixie: Hi. Where's J.R.?
Adam: Dixie, go away.
Dixie: Look, Adam, I just want to talk to him before he goes.
Adam: Before -- before he go -- what? Say it. Go on, "Before he pleads guilty to attempted murder" or "before he goes off to prison for God knows how many years" or "just one last glimpse before J.R.ís life goes to hell."
Dixie: I just want to talk to him.
Adam: And say what?
Krystal: You're -- you're yelling.
Adam: I'm not yelling! It's -- it's on her head! My son is being punished because of his mother's sins.
J.R.: I love you. I don't want to leave.
Babe: I don't want you to go. Don't go. I love you.
J.R.: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
[A knock on her door wakes up Babe.]
J.R.: This is it -- the day that we say good-bye. Is this a good time? I have some things I want to go over with you.
Babe: I guess. Yeah, come in.
J.R.: So I spoke to the family attorney and the accountant. I wanted to make sure that they handled everything the -- the right way.
Babe: J.R., you know I'm not into all of this stuff.
J.R.: You have to hear me on this, Babe. I'm not going to go into a lot of details, but I want you to know that I've taken every provision possible for you and Little A. I've signed over the power of attorney to you to take over my shares at Chandler Enterprises.
J.R.: That reaction there -- if you multiply that by a hundred, that's a ballpark of how my father is going to react.
Babe: Your dad doesn't even know about this yet?
J.R.: No. And it's my suggestion that you keep some distance -- at least till your mother can hose him off.
Babe: J.R., are you sure?
J.R.: If I would've known that the Carey women would have controlling interest in Chandler and the power to outvote my father -- uh --
Babe: No, J.R., you -- you're making jokes and making light of this, but I know how hard this was for you to do this.
J.R.: No, holding onto all this stuff is why I got in this whole mess to begin with. The reason why I -- I tried to kill you was because I was afraid to lose everything that I have. By giving this to you, on some weird level I feel like it's setting me free. Now, as far as our son is concerned -- it would be amazing if I was able to see him every day. But I don't want him to freak out. So that's why I'm going to leave it up to you whether you think he should come for visits.
Babe: Sure. Absolutely.
J.R.: You know I hate what I did to you. I wish I could go back. I wish I could rewind back to the day we were married. I love you, and I'm going to hate myself for putting you through all that hell. And that's why I'll totally get it if you do not want to continue this marriage, if you don't want to wait for me to serve my time. What I'm saying is I'm not going to fight you if you want a divorce.
Babe: What's this?
J.R.: That's custody of Little Adam, if and when you want to end the marriage.
Adam: You have been trying to get our son away from me since the day he was born, and now you get your wish.
Dixie: Don't you dare imply I wanted this.
Adam: Well, didn't you, because you're the reason it's happening.
Krystal: Oh, come on, Adam. You cannot possibly blame Dixie for -- for what J.R. did to Babe.
Adam: Dixie is exactly who I blame! You devastated that boy, you deserted him, you let him think you were dead, led him on to -- to drowning in the bottle, going on to a felony, and then straight to prison.
Dixie: Don't do this, Adam.
Adam: The truth hurts, doesn't it, lady? You realize our son could be killed while he's in prison, especially when they find out why he is in there? Almost killing a woman and her unborn child.
Dixie: Don't you dare say that. Don't you dare say that J.R. will be killed. Don't you ever say that again.
Adam: Well, you abandoned one child and gave away the other one. No one is being fooled by your devoted parent act.
Krystal: Adam, that -- that's enough now. Now, I am not condoning what Dixie did to J.R., but everybody knows that she has been working like the devil to try and find her baby girl. The only reason why she stayed away from her son was because of Kate.
Adam: Yeah, you're absolutely right, Krystal. She loved Katie far more than she ever loved her own son.
Dixie: That is not fair.
Adam: No? You abandoned J.R. because of baby Kate. You stayed away because of Kate. Face it, Dixie. You chose Kate over J.R.
Tad: Come on, for a guy that can take out an entire city's power grid, blowing up a boat ought to be a piece of cake.
Zach: I like Dixie, I really do. And I don't think I have to blow anything up to impress her. I got better things to do.
Tad: Yeah, "better things to do" -- like keeping her hidden from her family, letting us go on mourning for her, or taking little field trips out to some maternity resort. You mean "better things to do" like sticking your fat nose in other people's business.
Zach: And here you are in mine. Dixie asked me for help. Would it make you feel better if I turned her down?
Tad: No. It would've made me feel better if you told me she was alive in the first place. It would've made me feel better if you told me Kate had survived that accident, somewhere out there was information Madden had that would help me find my daughter, but you didnít. You kept your mouth shut -- again -- and now all that information is useless because it's disappeared.
Zach: What do you mean, it's disappeared?
Tad: I mean it's gone. I went out to that island, there's nothing there. There's no one and nothing, and that -- that big room, that secret room Dixie told me about -- it's empty. On top of that, somebody just busted into her hotel room. They took all the information back that you two stole, so there's nothing left on this earth that can lead me to Kate.
Zach: I tell you what, I got something to make you feel better -- this is all because of me.
Tad: I'm so glad at a moment like this, you could be smug.
Zach: Well, you asked me for help, I'm giving it to you. I'm taking the blame, which means you don't have to face the truth. You lost Kate because you never wanted her in the first place.
Josh: You saw me get on that boat before it went into flames.
Jamie: So that obviously means I did it.
Josh: You hate -- you hate me, you hate my father.
Jamie: Yeah, me and about a thousand other people in Pine Valley.
Josh: Well, you know what? You can tell it to the cops because I'm turning you in.
Julia: What? You're not serious.
Josh: I am dead serious. Actually, I want your whole damn family interrogated on this.
Jamie: Sounds good. I've actually been meaning to talk to the cops. Well, someone's got to tell them all about your half brothers and sisters out there.
Disguised voice: Once you've told me where Kate is -- name, address, phone number, zip code -- and I get DNA proof it's her, then you'll resurface. You've wasted enough time, Doctor. Your food supply is limited.
Greg: Please shut up.
Disguised voice: Your oxygen supply is limited.
Greg: I'm trying to meditate.
Disguised voice: Which means your time on this earth could be limited, unless you do as I say.
Greg: Silence, please, please. That's all I ask.
Disguised voice: How long can you hold out?
Greg: Please shut up. Enough, already.
Disguised voice: I'm not afraid to let you die.
Greg: All right. All right, I'll give you what you want. I'll tell you where Dixieís child is. Ok. All right. I'll tell you who has the child. I'll give you the address, her home phone number, the business numbers -- I'll tell you everything. But you have to get me out of here first so that I would know you won't leave me here to die. I'll tell you everything you want to know, but get me out of here. Answer me, damn it!
Dixie: I have made more mistakes than I care to count. I have hurt my children in ways that are too depressing to think about. I admit that.
Adam: You -- this isn't some self-help meeting -- lousy mothers anonymous. "I'm -- I'm Dixie, and I'm addicted to destroying my children." That doesn't -- see, that doesn't cut it. That isn't nearly enough, and it's way, way too late.
Dixie: There is one thing that I am proud of, however, and that is J.R. admitted that he was wrong, and he is willing to face the consequences. It takes a very strong boy to do that.
Adam: Yeah. Yes, well, he's already served his sentence -- all those years that he grieved for you and ached for you for nothing. You think he really deserves another sentence on top of the one you gave him? Face it. It's a joke, a slap in the face, your being here. I never thought I would hear myself say this, but I am so grateful that J.R. has Babe. Unlike you, J.R. can count on Babe to stand by him. She isn't going to desert him when he needs her most.
J.R.: If splitting up is the route that you choose, I hope that you'd be willing to talk with me about visitation after I get out of prison.
Babe: I need to get ready.
J.R.: We have to talk about this.
Babe: No, I don't want --
J.R.: No, we have to, Babe. This is real, ok? I'm going away for a long time, maybe forever. You're going to have to take on a lot more responsibility than you ever thought you had to, and I trust that you can handle it, but you got to know what I'm leaving you with. This is a copy of my will and my insurance policy.
Babe: I don't want those.
J.R.: Look, best-case scenario, I go in there for a few years, and I come out no worse for the wear. Worst-case scenario, I may never walk out of there.
J.R.: Please, just review it, Babe. You can -- you can see that I left you everything.
Babe: No, J.R., stop it! I don't -- I don't want to hear any more of this. You -- you're going to be fine, and -- and nothing is going to happen to you.
J.R.: Babe, please don't do this right now.
Babe: I canít. I don't want you to -- to die. I couldn't stand it.
J.R.: So if anything happens to me, you and the baby are taken care of.
Babe: Would you quit saying that? Nothing is going to happen to you. You're going to --
J.R.: Well, look who it is.
Winifred: You wanted to see the baby, sir?
J.R.: Yeah, you bet. Hi. Hi, buddy.
J.R.: Oh. So -- check it out, ok? Daddy's got to leave today. He has got to go away for a while and doesn't know when he's going to be back. He's done some really bad things, and he has to take an extra-long time-out. But you still have your mama and your grandma and your aunts and uncles and all your friends. So if you ever need any help, you can always go see them, because they love you just as much as I love you. Oh. I want to show you something, ok? Have you seen this? See this? That's a picture of Daddy and Little A. So if you ever need to put it next to your bed at nighttime, if you ever miss my good-night kisses -- I love you so much.
Jamie: And at this creepy island maternity spa, Dixie and Zach Slater found proof that your father was universal donor number one.
Julia: Think of all those women who volunteered as surrogates, never having any idea that they were carrying their doctor's baby.
Jamie: Wow, Josh, you just went from being an only child to one out of a thousand in a matter of minutes. I guess Christmas could get real expensive for you this year.
Josh: This is total BS.
Jamie: No, this is fact. So if you try to turn me or my family in to the cops, I'll just narc on your father and send that pervert away for good. Derek. We're just talking about you.
Derek: Why does that worry me?
Josh: Any new leads on the explosion?
Derek: Just got word from Forensics -- definitely sabotage. Now, do you have any idea who could be responsible for this?
Greg: First you won't shut up, now you won't say anything. What kind of ploy is this? I thought all you wanted was your precious Kate. Who are you, anyway? Who do I have the pleasure of despising? Is it you, Tad? Did you bury me like this, because I wouldn't give you back your child? If you did, you're a damn fool. You don't deserve to have that child back. You don't deserve to ever see her again.
Tad: Your services in searching for my daughter are no longer needed or accepted. You turn in your resignation. Bye-bye. Why, don't you have a wife out there you can play superhero for?
Zach: Kendall has my full attention. Why do you think I'm going after Madden? He tried to convince her to give up her child. I'm not going to let that slide.
Tad: Hmm. What do you know -- something we finally agree on. Yippee. Madden's a pig. Don't expect me to invite you out for beer and darts.
Zach: I never thought that beer and darts were a very good combination. Tad? What Madden did to Kendall is nothing compared to what your son did to her.
Tad: My son is going to prison for what he did to Kendall. At least he's paying for his mistakes.
Zach: My wife and her unborn son almost died. Little more than a mistake. You want to know about a mistake -- how about that? If you'd succeeded in blowing up Madden along with his yacht, you'd never find out where Kate is. What do you think about that?
Del: Don't ask him. Ask me. Tad had nothing to do with the explosion. I blew the doctor's cabin cruiser sky-high.
Singer: Family, society and all the people in between
Dixie: Hey, kiddo. I really hope you don't mind me coming. I just -- uh -- I had to see you. I couldn't let you go without -- without telling you how much -- how badly I -- how sorry I am for hurting you. For making you feel abandoned. For ever thinking that I don't love you, because I do, more than you will ever know. And now you're going to face this judge, and I got to tell you I feel responsible. So I just want you to know I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry for all of it.
J.R.: You know, I've been doing some thinking about what I've done, where I'm going, how I got there. But I don't think anybody's going to be able to understand my choices. I barely understand them myself. At the time, it seemed like they were the right choices, the only choices. And as twisted as it seems now, my wanting to hurt Babe was because I felt like it was the only way I could protect myself and my son. I'm not trying to justify it because I canít. I just wanted to let you know that I can sort of see it through your eyes. And it's not as ugly as it was.
Dixie: You don't have to let me off the hook. I've made a lot of mistakes.
J.R.: Yeah, you have. I still don't understand how you could walk away from your son. It absolutely killed me to say good-bye to Little Adam. But I do believe when you left Pine Valley, you didn't intend to stay out there as long as you did. You know, you had to go out to Europe to protect Kate, and I want what's best for Kate. You had to go looking for her.
Dixie: Yeah, but I should've told you the truth. I should've told you that we were alive.
J.R.: And I should've put down the booze the moment I started thinking about killing my wife, but I didnít. And it just snowballed from there. Same thing for you. But we can make this situation right. I can do the time that I deserve. And you can find my little sister.
Dixie: Oh, I am trying, but I don't know.
J.R.: Kate's going to be coming home a lot sooner than you think. My baby sister will be here.
Tad: Are you out of your mind? Do you realize if Madden had been on that boat, you would've just taken away the last chance we have of finding --
Del: I knew Madden wasn't on the yacht. I'd been watching it nonstop.
Zach: So why did you blow it up?
Del: Take away a possible escape route. If Maddenís anywhere in Pine Valley, he's not leaving on that boat, not unless he plans on gluing together some splinters and building a raft.
Tad: You know what would be a better way to keep Madden in Pine Valley is not letting him drug you at the airport.
Del: Do you really want to start pointing fingers, Tad? Tell me exactly how the supposed love of your life was alive and well in Europe looking for your child, and the great PI canít track her down.
Di: Ok, Del, that's enough. We're going to go now.
Tad: No, no, no, no. That's all right. By all means, allow me.
Del: When are you going to quit sticking up for this jerk? How many times is he going to dump all over you before you realize he's a total waste?
Di: Del, Tad is not the bad guy here. You want to be ticked at someone, be ticked at Madden. You want someone to suffer, let it be Greg.
Zach: Oh, Madden will suffer. Don't worry about that.
Greg: Tad? Answer me! Tad? It has to be Tad. Dixie? Oh, Dixie. If you're foolish enough to bury me here -- oh. You're so insane, you're too insane to raise that precious child. If you have any ideas you'll get that child back, you can kiss those good-bye. I know what's best for that child. I know what's best for all my children, and it's best for them if they stay exactly where they are!
Disguised voice: Josh will be worried sick. You don't want him to go through life thinking you abandoned him, do you, Dr. Madden? Wouldn't you like to see Josh again?
Josh: No, I don't know who could've blown up my dad's boat or who'd want to.
Derek: Are you worried about your own safety, Josh?
Josh: No. No, not at all.
Derek: Ok. But if someone should come to mind or if your father shows up, you know where to reach me.
Josh: There. I backed off. I didn't turn your sorry ass in to Chief Frye. You owe me, here's how -- get off my father's back.
Jamie: When your father messed with my family, he made the biggest mistake of his life. There's no way I'm going to let him get away with it.
Julia: Jamie, wait a second.
Julia: Did you --
Jamie: Did I what?
Julia: Sabotage Gregís boat?
Jamie: Not me. What about you?
Jamie: Well, when I signed in this morning, I noticed that you signed out early the night that Greg Madden disappeared.
Julia: Well, I'd been working here for so many hours straight, I just had to get out of here. Uh, do you want to get a coffee?
Jamie: I don't have time. I have to go see my brother before he gets sent off to prison today.
Julia: Jamie, I'm so sorry.
David: Isn't he a little young for you, Julia?
Dixie: Everything you've said, J.R. -- it's more than I ever hoped to hear. To say that you understand even some of what I've done --
J.R.: It isn't easy. I mean, owning up to what I've done wouldn't make much sense if I wasn't prepared to admit to all of my mistakes. I have disappointed you, Mom. I am so sorry for that. I know that you expected so much more.
Dixie: You could not have been a better son. I am so proud of you.
J.R.: But I've done so many inexcusable things.
Dixie: And I will always love you. I still love you. Come here.
Joe: Josh, what happened?
Josh: Someone blew up my father's yacht. I happened to be on it at the time.
Joe: Are you all right?
Josh: Yeah, I'm -- I'm fine. A few minor cuts and bruises. It turns out I'm shatterproof.
Joe: Well, thank God. I -- I assume the police are investigating?
Josh: Yeah, but I don't trust them. I don't trust anyone in this town.
Joe: I hope you know you can trust me.
Josh: I guess you heard the news. My father's evil.
Joe: You believe that?
Josh: I don't want to. But I have a feeling he's keeping something from me -- something major.
Joe: Mm-hmm. Have any idea what that could be?
Josh: I think it has something to do with Erica. She's been holding something from me. I have to know what they're hiding. I need to know.
Julia: Beat it.
David: You can do a lot better, Julia. Actually, you already have.
Julia: If you're referring to those two regrettable nights that we spent together, I was really a mess then, and I had no idea what I was doing.
David: Well, you seemed to be an expert at everything you were doing that night. In fact, I still dream about that one position.
Julia: Will you shut up?
David: Look, I'd love to stay and chat with you longer, but I have to get to the courthouse. My son-in-law is being carted off to prison today, and I want to get a good seat.
Julia: You're unbelievable.
David: I am on cloud nine. Finally, that punk J.R. is going to get what he's had coming to him.
J.R.: I hope you get to know Babe better while I'm gone.
Dixie: Of course. I -- I would love that.
Babe: Me, too.
J.R.: And -- and Little Adam. I want him to know my mom.
Babe: Of course, J.R. Little Adam and I would love to spend more time with you.
Adam: J.R.? You don't have to make the decision right now.
J.R.: I -- I have a request for you, too, Dad. Could you try to be nicer to my mom? She's welcome in the house any time. I mean, Little Adam is her family, too.
Krystal: Dixie can come visit that little munchkin whenever she likes.
J.R.: Thank you, Krystal. I'm going to hold you to that. You know, I owe you an apology. I'm sorry. Every time I tried to hurt your daughter or disrespect her, trust her, I --
J.R.: There's no way that I could ever make up for that. I just hope you know now that I really do love her.
Tad: Is it ok if we interrupt?
J.R.: Come on in.
Jamie: I thought we'd tag along with you to the courthouse if that's ok with you.
J.R.: Are you kidding me? That's -- that's more than cool. It's --
Adam: We can all ride over in the car together.
Dixie: You guys go ahead. Babe and I will meet you there. I need to talk to you. It's important.
Joe: Josh, you -- you must be exhausted. Why don't you go home and get some rest?
Josh: You know, don't you? You know what my father and Erica are hiding.
Josh: Come on, Dr. Martin. You've always played it straight with me. You gave me a job, support. I need your help. I am completely in the dark on this. My father is gone, and I have a feeling he did something so horrible that he had to run, and I have a -- I have a feeling he's not coming back. I deserve to know the truth. I need to know who my father is. Dr. Martin, if you know something, please tell me.
Greg: Of all the sick, twisted, demented psychopaths, whoever put me in here -- Tad, Dixie, Di, Del, Slater, Erica. Oh, Tad. You won't beat me. You'll never win. You'll never win! You won't break me!
Disguised voice: Once you've told me where Kate is -- name, address, phone number, zip code, and I get DNA proof it's her -- then you'll resurface.
Greg: It's a recording. I'm not even talking to a real person. Oh.
Disguised voice: You've wasted enough time, Doctor.
Greg: Whoever put me in here isn't sitting by a speaker over my grave ready to dig me up. They're out there somewhere, going about their life while I'm left in this death trap. Where are you? Who are you? You won't get away with this. Whichever one of you did this to me, go about your business while you still can.
[J.R. arrives in the courtroom with Adam, Krystal, Tad, and Jamie. Di arrives and stands with Del, while David takes a seat, followed by Julia, and then Zach.]
Babe: Look, whatever you wanted to say, Dixie, I wish you would hurry. J.R. needs me, and I can't be late for this.
Dixie: Yes, you need to get to court in time to stop it.
Babe: Stop what?
Dixie: Please, Babe. Save my son. You're the only one who can.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Josh (to Erica): We were just talking about you.
Joe: Tell him, Erica.
Dixie (to Babe): The guilty plea is for you. Stop him from making it.
Ryan (to Kendall): I love you.
