Josh: Wow, looks like I'm late for the party.

Joe: We're just about to start.

Jeff: Have a seat, Josh.

Joe: All right. I was just telling Julia and Jamie the main reason for this meeting is to discuss the grave oversight in the ER last night. We also have to address your sexual misconduct on the job. When I tell you I'm disappointed, obviously, that's a big understatement. I find it appalling and professionally irresponsible.

Josh: I think it's completely heinous myself. And like I said last night when I gave you my version of what went down, Nurse Keefer's reckless indifference nearly killed a patient. And bottom line is she deserves whatever she gets.

Annie: How can this be happening?

Erin: Annie, listen to me, ok? You -- you've got to get back to the hospital. You could've died last night. You -- you need a thorough exam.

Annie: No, forget it. No way. If I go back to that hospital, Terry is going to get me.

Terry: Thanks for meeting me, Aidan.

Aidan: Is what I heard up front true, that you got that from a mugging in Pine Valley Hospital of all places?

Terry: I saw my wife. Annie is in Pine Valley. I was walking nearby the park last night when I spotted her in a car. I followed her to this hospital.

Aidan: Hang on -- Terry, Terry -- you live in New York. What the hell were you doing walking the streets of Pine Valley late at night?

Jonathan: Promise me, Amanda, you will not take your eyes off of Lily.

Amanda: Ok. I promise.

Jonathan: And don't let her know that anything's going on. Just keep her busy.

Amanda: What gives, Jonathan? What are you so afraid of?

Lily: What's going on? Why is your mouth down like that?

Jonathan: It is? Well, then it's because I'm so sad, because I have to leave you for a little while.

Lily: Well, where are you going?

Jonathan: I have to go help Erin with some things.

Lily: Ok. Well, will you be back soon?

Jonathan: Well, yeah. Yeah -- as soon as I take care of things over there.

Ronnie: Erica?

Erica: Ronnie. Hi.

Ronnie: How are you?

Erica: Just wonderful, thank you.

Ronnie: It's been a long time -- at least in person anyway.

Erica: Well, you know what they say -- when the going gets tough, the tough take a meeting.

Ronnie: Ain't that the truth, huh?

[Watching Kendall, Babe remembers what her husband said.]

J.R.’s voice: Zach Slater could've planted that disc, Ryan Lavery, or anyone else who was angry at me for what I did to Kendall.

Ryan: Hey.

Kendall: Hey.

Ryan: I just got off the phone with the lab.

Kendall: Oh, God. The test with you and Spike. Is he your son?

Ryan: I asked the lab to put a rush on it. It cost me a lot of money --

Kendall: No, I don't want to hear this. I'm not mentally prepared yet, Ryan, please.

Ryan: Well, hold on a second. You don't know what I was going to tell you.

Kendall: Oh, God. Ok, you're determined to do this, aren't you? Ok, but don't you think maybe we should go somewhere a little more private, you know, like maybe home?

Ryan: Yeah, sure. Absolutely. We can do it wherever and whenever you want. But first, the results have to come in.

Kendall: Oh. Oh, ok. The results aren't in yet?

Ryan: No, they're not in. That's what I came to tell you, that they're -- they could show up anytime.

Kendall: Oh. Ok. Good. Good. So "anytime" -- as in today?

Ryan: That's what I'm hoping.

Kendall: God, I'm shaking. Do I look shaky to you?

Ryan: Wow, look at you.

Kendall: Yeah.

Ryan: Ok, there you go -- not anymore. Breathe.

Kendall: I'm breathing.

Ryan: Ok.

Kendall: God, what happened to all the bravado I had last night with my mom? "It doesn't matter whose DNA was used to create Spike, Mother. Ryan will always be my baby's daddy."

Ryan: I still believe that. Don't you?

Kendall: Yeah, of course I do. I just kind of hope you are in on the DNA part.

Ryan: Look, do you want me to hang out here until we hear back from the lab?

Kendall: What do you mean, and stay glued to my side?

Ryan: If it'll help.

Kendall: Yeah, actually, that would probably really, really help, but no, it's not necessary. I've got -- we're busy here, I got a lot going on, so I'm sure I will find something that can take my mind off of things.

Ryan: Yeah.

Kendall: Yeah.

Ryan: I'm sure -- not likely.

Kendall: Do I reserve the right to change my mind?

Ryan: Hmm -- call me.

Kendall: Ok.

Ryan: Ok.

Babe: Hey, Kendall. How's Spike?

Kendall: Why the hell do you want to know? What is it to you?

J.R.: I need this meeting, Erica.

Erica: Oh, I'm just here for the watered-down coffee and the stale doughnuts myself.

J.R.: I'm trying to do one a day for 90 days.

Erica: And I should be impressed because?

J.R.: Obviously, my being here makes you uncomfortable. I'll come back for the afternoon meeting.

Erica: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. You stay right here.

J.R.: I don't need this friction. I'm sure you don't, either.

Erica: I don't need you ambushing another pregnant woman, or burying someone else alive -- which, in your case, is entirely possible. So thank you, but I would much prefer looking at your smarmy face than being responsible for your taking out your next victim.

Babe: You need to chill, Kendall. It's called a casual conversation? We do have to work together, and I am a sucker for a cute baby story -- even yours.

Kendall: Fine. Spike's great. End of cute story. Good-bye.

Babe: Do you have any new pictures of him? I take loads of Little A. It's just -- its crazy how fast babies grow up.

Kendall: Ok, you see, normally when someone says "good-bye," that's the end of the conversation.

Babe: Come on. You know what I'm talking about. You -- you put the by to bed at night, and you pull him out of the crib the next morning and he's bigger and he's making new faces. Your son is going to grow up so fast.

Kendall: Oh, my God, what is your point, Babe?

Babe: Just that you should -- you should be documenting this time with Spike. Take it from experience, it's over in the blink of an eye.

Kendall: We take plenty of pictures, thank you.

Babe: No, no, not just pictures. You have to -- you got to record things in baby books, and there's video and audio. It's great keepsakes, and I'm not so good about doing it myself, but, you know, Mama was telling me about this new high-tech device. It can record the baby even when you're miles away.

Kendall: Why would you need to?

Babe: I -- I don't know. I just -- I'd never heard of anything like that and it kind of sounded cool.

Kendall: Cool. Great, go buy one.

Babe: You know what? I might. I just might do that, but you should buy one, too. But then again, your plate is pretty full, as I can see. Maybe you should put one of Spike's daddies on baby-documenting patrol. So, which one is more of the techie? Is it Zach or Ryan?

Kendall: Oh, seriously, Babe, where are you going with this?

Babe: Just curious.

Lily: There. That's 50 more gift bags ready for tonight.

Amanda: Um -- where you going?

Lily: Um -- outside, to eat the chocolate chip cookie I packed in my lunch bag. It's almost 11:14, time for my mid-morning snack.

Amanda: Oh -- uh -- do you think you could eat it later?

Lily: Change my schedule? Why?

Amanda: Because I could use your help with something in the office.

Lily: What?

Amanda: Oh, come with me. I'll show you. I hope you don't mind. You're just so efficient.

Lily: Ok. I guess I could change my schedule just this once. I'm really efficient, after all.

Terry: You have no idea how much that sweet face haunts me. It's the most beautiful face you've ever seen. Those eyes -- so innocent, so trusting. I had her, and then I lost her, that beautiful child. I'll do anything, anything to get my little daughter back, Aidan.

Aidan: Really? Including walking the streets of a town that you're unfamiliar with late at night?

Terry: I have been staying in Pine Valley the past few nights, hoping against hope I'd spot Annie with my little girl. Roaming the streets, my head turning at the sound of every child's voice. Scanning the faces of countless little girls, watching them run and play and laugh, praying one of them would be my Emma.

Aidan: Terry, why didn't you tell me that you're in town? When you first caught sight of your ex, why didn't you call me then? You should've got in touch with me way before you followed her to the hospital.

Terry: I'm desperate, Mr. Devane. Desperate people don't think clearly.

Annie: He's closing in on us. It won't be long before Terry tracks Emma down.

Erin: No, no. We will not let that happen.

Annie: No, as soon as Emma wakes up from her nap, I am getting her as far away from this place as humanly possible.

Jamal: Well, you can't just take off without a plan.

Annie: Here's my plan -- run, and don't look back.

Erin: Just when you got your best shot at winning this battle?

Annie: What?

Erin: Here, in Pine Valley, for the first time, you have got real ammunition against your ex.

Annie: What ammunition?

Jonathan: Me.

Jamie: We admitted to what we did. Do you hear us making any excuses?

Josh: No, I also don't hear Nurse Keefer admitting responsibility for what happened to my patient.

Julia: Because I'm not responsible. You administered the medication that sent that woman into cardiac arrest.

Josh: You left it off the chart.

Julia: I specified it on the chart. The patient had already self-administered an Albuterol inhaler prior to her arriving in the ER. I tried to tell Dr. Madden to his face, but he cut me off mid sentence and ordered me out.

Josh: My attention was 100% on that patient. Nurse Keefer’s mind was obviously on her next go-around with her premed escort here.

Joe: All right, ok. We don't want your speculation.

Jamie: I watched Julia take down that patient's history. I heard her read off the woman's inhaler info, and I watched her write down the beta-agonist warning on the chart.

Josh: Well, you're not exactly the most trustworthy alibi.

Jeff: If Jamie witnessed Julia make a note in the chart --

Josh: He witnessed it after she gave the chart to me, to cover her tracks. You're not actually going to buy into their lies, Dr. Martin? You're seriously going to take the word of two sex-obsessed slackers over a responsible doctor?

Joe: All right. Easy, now. This is why we're here, to investigate, to hear both sides.

Josh: Well, when is this investigation going to begin? I mean, with all due respect, could you please at least try to humor me?

Jeff: Neither my father nor I have made a decision.

Josh: Oh, I see. Ok, so this is just a formality? Ok, I see where your loyalties lie. Martin vs. Madden. It's not bad enough that my father is dead. He took away your precious baby Kate, so you want to blame someone. Well, who better than his own flesh and blood?

Jeff: You have no idea how far off base you are.

Joe: Jeff? I think it's time we enlighten the young doctor. In fact, I think it's way past time.

Josh: So is this the part where I learn the secret Martin handshake? You said you wanted to enlighten me. I'm waiting. What don't I know?

Jeff: Well, you obviously don't know who you're talking to. If there's one person in this entire building who's going to give a guy a fair shake, it's the man sitting right here. There's no conspiracy against you, Josh. We just want to get to the bottom of this.

Josh: And you expect me to believe nepotism doesn't play a role in your decision?

Jeff: Well, if you don't think my father's going to be impartial, we could always take this to the medical advisory board.

Jamie: If that's what it has to take.

Josh: No, that won't be necessary. But I appreciate you offering. You want to be fair, and that shows something.

Joe: We don't want anyone to think we're playing favorites.

Josh: I'm sorry, I -- I lost my temper earlier, and -- I just -- I just want to put this past me, so I can make a fresh start.

Jeff: You going somewhere?

Josh: I was offered a position at the Geneva Institute for the study of infectious disease. With any luck, I'll be leaving Pine Valley in a few weeks.

Joe: That is totally unacceptable.

Julia: So that's it? You just sided against me?

Joe: I haven't reached any decision yet, Julia. I'm still trying to sort through everything I've been hearing.

Jamie: I don't mean to speak for Julia here, but your reaction to the news that Josh might be working somewhere else -- that'd be easy to mistake for a decision made.

Josh: Dr. Martin, someone from the Geneva Institute will be contacting you for a reference. You wouldn't block my shot at this position, would you?

Joe: Of course, I wouldn’t. But you're missing the point. This is not about the job.

Josh: Well, if it's not about the job, what is this about?

Aidan: Oh. Sorry, Joe. I didn't realize that you were in a meeting. I'll come back.

Joe: No, no, no. Come in, come in, Aidan. Is something wrong?

Aidan: Yeah, you could say that. A fugitive was treated in your ER last night. A young woman in her 20s. She signed in under a phony name, and then she disappeared with a man.

Annie: How many people have you told my story to, Erin?

Erin: Oh, Annie, please don't misunderstand.

Annie: I don't even know this man, and he knows everything about me. What's to misunderstand?

Erin: This is my brother.

Jonathan: I'm -- I'm Jonathan. And you don't have to worry, Annie, because I'm -- I'm not going to tell anybody.

Annie: I thought I could trust you.

Jamal: You can trust her.

Erin: If you would just listen to what my brother has got to say.

Jonathan: Hmm -- because I -- I really can help you.

Annie: You know what? Nobody can help us now.

Jonathan: Yeah, if you listen to what I have on your husband, then you'll --

Ryan: Someone want to tell me what's going on?

Erica: I hate to miss the point of AA, but can a person really change if he only makes amends in order to dodge punishment? Going through the motions is not only an insult to everyone who's done it the right way, but it's just a -- a relapse waiting to happen. How many more innocent people are going to be hurt, until he wakes up and realizes who he really is and takes the consequences for it?

Babe: Why does it always have to be like this?

Kendall: You annoying the hell out of me? Good question.

Babe: You convincing yourself that you hate me so much, you forget how much that we have in common.

Kendall: Actually, we do have one huge thing in common -- your husband tried to kill us both.

Babe: I was talking about our sons.

Kendall: No, actually, I want to talk more about J.R. You want to be my buddy, right, Babe? You want to bond over lattes? Then please, answer this question for me -- how do you go to sleep at night knowing you're lying in the arms of a cold-blooded killer?

Babe: I don't know. You tell me. How do you do it?

Kendall: What did you just say to me?

Babe: How does it feel going to bed with a murderer?

Kendall: Zach has never killed anyone.

Babe: You sure about that? Zach had plenty of motive to get rid of Greg Madden. And so did the father of your child.

Ryan: So this Terry that went after Lily in New York is the same -- the same T that you're running from?

Jonathan: He's an evil man, Ryan. We -- we have to stop him.

Annie: This is too much.

Erin: Hey. Sit down.

Ryan: Jonathan, tell me that he didn't get to Lily to --

Jonathan: No. No, no, thank God. But -- he got her drunk. And he got half of her clothes off and told her that it was -- it was practice for when she was ready to go all the way. Ryan, if I hadn't gotten there when I did, I don't know --

Annie: I -- I can't listen to any more of this.

Erin: No, hey.

Jamal: It's ok, I'll go.

Erin: Thank you.

Ryan: So what are we going to do to stop him?

J.R.: Some pretty intense sharing. Is it directed at anyone in particular?

Erica: Oh -- is there anyone else in here who got away with attempted murder?

J.R.: You tell me.

Erica: Oh, don't you dare try to turn this back on me.

J.R.: We all have skeletons in our closets, don't we? You never know what kind of landmine secrets people can be sitting on.

Erica: Well, it's no secret that you almost killed my daughter and her baby. And it's no secret that you got your poor, stupid wife to lie your way out of a just punishment.

J.R.: That's right. My life is an open book. Can you say the same about yours? Are all your secrets laid out for the world to see? Or do you have some ugly truths that you like to keep hidden? And who are you to cast judgment on me? Have you made all of your amends, Erica?

Joe: Ok, I've made my decision. Now, before I tell you -- I mean, I want you to know if anyone still has concerns about my impartiality, we'd best do as Jeff suggested, and vote it up to the review board.

Josh: Well, I'd like a fast resolution so I can move on.

Joe: Julia, Jamie?

Jamie: Go for it.

Joe: Ok. Julia, you've always known that I've held you in the highest esteem. I think you're one of the finest, most dedicated nurses on the staff. But even the hardest worker can make mistakes. I know I've made my own share.

Jamie: You can't be --

Joe: I know you could never deliberately lie about anything, but I think it's possible you are confused about the order in which things took place. And this inappropriate sexual alliance with Jamie was likely a significant contributing factor.

Julia: No, I -- I clearly remember exactly --

Jamie: I was there. I --

Jeff: Let's just -- please, let him finish.

Joe: I think it's quite possible that when you made that notation in the patient's chart, you did it after the initial handing off to Dr. Madden.

Julia: I would never do that.

Joe: Julia, I'm not firing you. I'm not even suspending you. I'm letting you off with a reprimand. But I want you to know that in the future, your focus here at the hospital must be on the patient and completely on the patient. That goes for you, too, Jamie. I don't want ever to come up on a scene such as we witnessed last night.

Julia: Well, is that it, then? May I be excused?

Joe: Yes.

Joe: And, Josh, if I do hear from Geneva, I'll give you a strong recommendation. But I urge you to give it more consideration before you leave us.

Josh: Thank you, Dr. Martin.

Jamie: That was complete crap, and you know it.

Kendall: You don't know a damn thing about my husband or the father of my child, so don't even think about lumping them in with a sick little freak like J.R.

Babe: Ok, fine. So how about we look at what I do know?

Kendall: No, you know what? Let's not. Let's just stop talking and get back to work.

Babe: Ryan and Zach wish all kinds of evil on J.R., not only for what he did to you and Spike, but for getting away with it. They would go to all kinds of lengths to make sure he pays for what he did.

Kendall: Well, someone's got to.

Babe: I know that Zach is good friends with Dixie, and Greg Madden stole Dixie’s baby. And he was buried most likely to try to reveal where Kate is.

Kendall: Ok, you know what? I don't have time for this, please?

Babe: I also know Ryan hates Greg Madden for what he did to Greenlee, and also for almost convincing you to give up your son.

Kendall: Get out of my way.

Babe: Oh, and lastly, Kendall, I know that Zach and Ryan would love to frame my husband for Greg Madden’s murder. Ask me, Kendall. I know a heck of a lot more than you do.

Kendall: Go to hell.

Julia: You're dangerous. You're destructive.

Josh: You messed up, you got caught. Deal with it.

Julia: You know damn good and well that note was on the chart when I handed it to you. Now, your lies have destroyed my credibility around here.

Josh: No, I think you and Jamie Martin took care of that all on your own.

J.R.: What did you do to my brother now, Madden?

Josh: Oh, great, just what I need. The serial killer piles on. You know what? You keep your pants on, and both of you -- stay the hell away from me.

Ryan: We have to make sure this Terry guy gets nowhere near Lily, and Annie, obviously --

Erin: Yeah. What can we do?

Jonathan: Whatever it takes. Ryan, no, Lily’s my wife. And I'm going to protect her, no matter what.

Erin: Hey, you believe Annie’s story now, right?

Ryan: I should never have doubted it.

Erin: But, Ryan, how can I possibly keep her safe, now that we know that he's seen her?

Ryan: There's only one thing we can do.

Ryan: Wow, she's fast.

Annie: Yeah.

Ryan: Emma, you don't even want to try one of these cookies? They're good.

Annie: Oh, she's not hungry. Your sister made her a plate of marshmallow treats.

Ryan: Oh.

Annie: Listen, Ryan, I -- I really appreciate you offering your home and your security protection, but I really can't accept it.

Ryan: Oh, you don't like chocolate chip cookies?

Annie: No, the -- the cookies look great, but my daughter and I can't just move in with you.

Ryan: I understand. I didn't make marshmallow treats. But I can learn. I can learn. I can call Erin right now on the phone and get the recipe. In fact, you know what? It's kind of funny. The -- we have a -- a marshmallow bush growing right out front --

Annie: Yeah, yeah --

Ryan: Which is --

Annie: And you're doing a -- a great job of distracting me and all, but we're in your home, and somewhere out there is my ex-husband stalking me and my little girl. I can't put that on you.

Ryan: You're not putting anything on me.

Annie: It's not your problem, and it wouldn't be right for us to invade your life, so --

Ryan: I don't know how much Erin has told you about our life -- our family life, you know, growing up. But yours and Emma’s problem used to be my problem. I mean, not exactly the same situation, but let's just say that my dad wasn't exactly a prince. And my mother ignored it, so I happen to get why Erin would break the law to help you.

Annie: I'm sorry.

Ryan: No, it's in the past, it's done. But -- but what's important now is that we do everything we possibly can do just to make sure that another, like, sick parent doesn't hurt a young child.

Annie: Yeah, but it's my fault. I mean, I'm the same as your mother. I ignored what Terry was doing for way too long.

Ryan: No, no, no, no, no -- you didn't ignore anything. He hid it from you. You couldn't -- you couldn't see it. There's a very big difference there. All right? Look, nobody wants to -- nobody wants to think that Daddy -- that sickness even exists, never mind so close to you. I mean, that's -- that's completely natural. When you found out what your husband was capable of, you took action. Divorce, custody fight, and you ran. When my mom found out what my dad was capable of, she ran -- to the liquor store. So it's not the same thing, ok? There was nobody there to help us. Nobody -- not a neighbor, not a teacher -- no one. So you have to understand why we have to do this, ok? So, stop fighting.

Annie: Where do I unpack?

Jamie: Maybe you're forgetting who Josh is.

Joe: Just because Greg Madden raised Josh --

Jamie: No, forget about Greg Madden. Josh screwed up enough on his own. This is the guy who drugged Erica, who sabotaged Amanda, and then he lied to all our faces about it. So do you think it's really that big of a stretch that he'd set up Julia to take the fall for his mistakes?

Joe: Josh is a responsible physician.

Jamie: Yeah, and Julia is one hell of a nurse. Her job is her life. Do you remember how hard she worked on that infant leukemia case? The family credited Julia for pulling their baby through. And, hell, she practically set up tent in the on-call room when Kendall was in her coma. They don't come more dedicated than Julia. So how can you buy Josh's version of the truth over hers?

Joe: A lifetime of practicing medicine.

[Joe picks up his jacket and leaves.]

J.R.: Do you want to pound Josh as badly as I do?

Babe: You can shake your head and scoff and tell me to drop dead all that you want. But deep down, you know that I'm right. Ryan or Zach could have easily dug that grave for Greg.

Kendall: Yeah, if they were homicidal maniacs like your husband, which they're not. Do you mind?

Babe: Please.

Lily: Are you going somewhere, Kendall?

Kendall: Yes, I am going home to see my son.

Lily: Well, isn't that a good thing? Why is your mouth turned down? Everyone's mouth is turned down today.

Kendall: Going home to see my son is a wonderful thing, but that thing over there -- that's what sucks. So, have a good day, and forward any calls to my home, please. Thank you.

Josh: Babe, pack up Little Adam. Let's get the hell out of Pine Valley and never look back.

J.R.: Just be glad Josh wants out of town.

Jamie: Oh, I am. I'm just hoping he sticks around long enough so I can wipe the floor with him.

J.R.: What if I told you I could start that floor wiping right now? I got the power to fry Josh. Snap of the fingers, he's toast.

Jamie: Well, then I say start snapping. I'm surprised you haven't done it already.

J.R.: Well, a few people would argue that he's suffered enough.

Jamie: A few people? Try one people -- Babe. Name one other person who gives a rat's tail if Josh gets hurt.

Erica: Jeff, this is just not a good time.

Jeff: I owe you an apology, Erica.

Erica: Well, I would pinch myself or laugh, but you seem to be very sincere.

Jeff: I've -- I've had a chance to think about this, to look at it from your point of view. I think I get it. What Greg Madden did to you was an unimaginable violation.

Erica: Thank you very much for your compassion. I really appreciate it. Jeff, I just can't do this right now.

Jeff: No, please, you -- you don't have to do anything. Just -- just let me get this off my chest, please.

Erica: Ok.

Jeff: When I lost Mary, she was pregnant with our child.

Erica: I remember.

Jeff: I always thought that she was going to have a boy. Losing them -- I -- I needed something to help me carry on. My whole life became about healing others. It was -- it was amazing, wonderful. And then I get this call from my father telling me that I had a son. And at that very moment, after all these years, I felt it again. That hole in my heart had never gone away.

Josh: You're looking at me like I'm insane. Maybe I am, but I've never been more serious about anything, Babe. Just say you'll come with me.

Babe: Just what? Pick up my son and run off with you? Just leave Pine Valley? Where is this coming from?

Josh: All right, look, I just -- I finally had to face facts. All right? The dream life that I saw for myself here -- it's gone. The people I trusted, the -- the things that I thought I could control -- they all blew to pieces. All right? That life is over. I can stay here and hope for a miracle that's never going to happen, or I can face reality and kiss those dreams good-bye. Start over. And I'm pretty sure your dream life went up in smoke, as well. You're hanging on to a fantasy, Babe. Let it go. It's over. Start fresh with me. Let's run while we can.

Lily: Oh, Amanda, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go eat that cookie now. I figured out a way in my schedule where I can revise it without changing too much.

Amanda: Wait, I'll come with you.

Lily: Why?

Amanda: Uh -- why not?

Lily: Are you afraid to leave me alone?

Amanda: Jonathan asked me to play it cool, but clearly my poker face sucks.

Lily: Who's playing poker?

Amanda: The truth is your husband thought you'd be stressed out about ConFusion opening, and he asked me to stick by your side and keep you calm. Looks like I blew it.

Lily: If by "blew it" you mean failed your task, you didn’t. I'll stay with you. For Jonathan. He's the best husband ever.

Amanda: You can say that again.

Lily: He's the best --

Amanda: But you don't have to.

[Keys jingle]

Jonathan: Aidan -- oh. Hello, T.

Aidan: I didn't know you two had met.

Jonathan: Yeah. We met. This is the sicko that tried to molest Lily in New York.

Ryan: How's the bedroom?

Annie: Oh, it's perfect. Did I say thank you?

Ryan: Yeah, you did, actually, 16 times.

Annie: Oh.

Ryan: Which is the limit, by the way. So you're done with the thank-yous.

Annie: Hmm.

Ryan: You're good. You're going to be safe here, ok? You and Emma. You will. I promise. I got security guys out there. They're making sure that everybody that lives in this courtyard -- they're the only people that are allowed in the courtyard. You can't see them, but --

Annie: Well --

Ryan: They're there.

Annie: They can't be that good. Where are they? All I see are -- are trees and garbage pails.

Ryan: Actually, that -- that tree right there -- that's -- that's not a tree, that's Andy. No, it's true. He's good. He's -- he's one of the best. He's --

Annie: Oh.

Ryan: Well, the only time I ever saw him break cover is when this guy was walking his dog, and the dog came up --

Annie: Yeah, yeah. And I guess next, you're going to tell me that's not really a garbage pail?

Ryan: No, of course, that's a garbage pail. But the birdhouse -- honestly, if you want to know -- the car that we parked next to wasn't empty. Ok? Just know that you and Emma are safe. It's all taken care of.

Annie: You are incredible, you know that?

Annie: I've never met a guy like you before.

Ryan: Just do me one -- one little favor, you know, in return. Just try to relax a little bit.

Annie: Oh, wait, slow down. One miracle at a time.

[Kendall is surprised to see Ryan with another woman.]

Intern: Hey, Keefer, you getting off?

Second Intern: From what I hear, she does that a lot.

First Intern: I know a closet with our names on it.

[Intern laughs as Jamie comforts Julia.]

Jeff: After finding out about Josh, I realized how desperately I want to have a family of my own, someone I could -- I could share my life with -- a son.

Erica: And I'm keeping you from that relationship, because I insist on keeping this secret.

Jeff: I thought that way at first. Now I see the big picture. It's not all about me. I'm not going to fill my needs at your expense. Or Josh's.

Josh: What do we have to lose, Babe? I mean, what's left here for us? Every last damn thing we counted on is gone.

Babe: You don't even want to stay in town long enough to find out who killed your father?

Josh: I know who killed my father -- and so do you. The difference is part of it makes sense to me now. And the damn pedestal I hated putting my father on -- it's dust now, just like my father. God, the things he did were so demented, and so unimaginable, so sick.

Babe: I didn't think that you knew.

Josh: Well, I wish I didn’t. I tried to deny it, but how long can you go on living a lie?

[J.R. watches his wife and Josh hugging from the sidelines.]

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

Terry (to Aidan & Jonathan): Annie put you up to this, didn't she?

Julia: Jamie, no more dates. We're over.

J.R. (to Josh): Well, you never really knew who your father was.

Josh (to Babe): This guy is a murderer. Don't stay with him, come with me.

Kendall (to Ryan): Don't pretend that the test results don't matter to you -- we could lose everything.
