Ryan: You have to trust me -- baiting your ex back into town is the best way to go.

Jonathan: What? Did you purposely lure Terry McDermott back to town? Tell me that I heard you wrong, Ryan.

Ryan: Just -- just calm down, let me explain.

Jonathan: Wait -- "calm down"? Um -- ok. Do you have any idea how big of a freak that this guy is? I'm sorry. Um -- he's beyond dangerous, Ryan. He cannot be allowed to set a foot back into this town.

Annie: Look, I felt the same way, but if --

Jonathan: And -- and you're going to lay the bait to bring him back?

Ryan: Yeah, but we're going to be ready for him this time, Jonathan. We have security on Annie, we have security on Emma. He's going to make a move for Emma, and we nail him.

Jonathan: Ok. His daughter wasn't the only target. He was after Lily, too. You remember? And now that Jack’s wrecked my marriage with her, how am I supposed to protect her from that sicko?

[Sitting at their respective computers, Terry and Lily write to each other.]

Terry's voice: "I've always known I was different, but I never really realized how truly alone I was."

Lily's voice: "I got used to feeling alone. Well, then I met someone who made me feel normal -- for a while, anyway."

Terry's voice: "I can pass for normal for about four minutes, but then --"

Lily’s voice: "My record is 8 minutes, 16 seconds, but every time --"

[With the moniker “Asperger boy,” Terry uses the books on his desk about Autistic teens to gain Lily’s trust. Also sitting on his desk are her photo as well as Emma’s.]

Terry's voice: "Eight minutes? That's great. You must not be as severe a case as I am. I don't know why I feel so sure about this, but I feel very comfortable corresponding with you. I think the two of us could be close."

[Rummaging through Dixie’s room, David hits the jackpot when he discovers the photo of the little girl resembling her whom he encountered at the park.]

Emma: I'm sorry.

[Krystal disapprovingly eavesdrops on her daughter at work.]

Babe: You'd really be lost without me.

Josh: Mm-hmm.

Babe: I mean, every financial "whiz kid turned TV producer turned successful doctor" definitely needs an ex-bartender lighting his path.

Josh: Right.

Babe: Mm-hmm.

Josh: And how lucky am I I found one?

Babe: Really.

Josh: Absolutely.

Babe: Totally.

Josh: You are amazing.

[Babe chuckles]

Erica: Babe and Josh -- I mean, don't make me sick.

Jeff: Well, she has an overwhelming effect on him.

Erica: Please, that's enough -- really, seriously, Jeff. This thought is repulsive.

Jeff: Well, to you maybe, but not to Josh.

Erica: You don't know that.

Jeff: Look, Babe may be the only reason that Josh is still here in Pine Valley. I mean, she's definitely the reason that he agreed to -- to meet with us and let us know on your boat the day they were rescued.

Erica: No. Jeff -- really. Josh has a mind of his own.

Jeff: No, Erica. Haven't you seen it -- the look in his eyes? When Babe is in the room, he can tune out everybody talking. And I think that -- I think that she cares about him, too.

Erica: Babe Chandler is married. And Babe Chandler is a walking plague. She's lethal, just like everyone else close to her. You thought Greg Madden was a diabolical mad scientist? Well, Babe’s father has a nice chunk of that market cornered himself. And don't even get me started on Babe’s homicidal maniac of a husband. And her mother is an enabling floozy who taught her daughter to lie, steal, and cheat her way into the good life.

[As David leaves Dixie’s room holding the file containing the little girls’ photos, J.R. blocks his way.]

Babe: Seriously.

Erica: Babe may seem like Josh's salvation to you, but believe me, she's nothing more than a flesh-eating carnivore.

Josh: What are you talking about?

Babe: I don't know. I mean, seriously -- doctor, finance? Come on, anyone can do that.

Josh: Right.

Babe: You don't even need a GED for that.

Josh: You know what? You're right. See, that's why I need someone like you in my life -- smart, funny, grounded.

Babe: Perfect.

Josh: Compassionate.

Babe: Totally --

Krystal: You're right, you're right. My baby doll is the full package. Her husband thinks so, too. You know, it's a great big world out there, Josh, full of lots of amazing, unattached women who would cut off their arm to land a looker like you.

Babe: Mama, you -- please. You don't have to --

Krystal: No, no, what's the problem? I'm only trying to help. I mean, it seems that Josh here is looking for love in all the wrong places. You're rich, you are free. Why don't you buy yourself a new jet and fly all over the world looking for Miss Right? And this time, leave my daughter alone, at home, where she belongs.

David: Mommy's not in, Junior. You might want to check Slater’s office, but before you go in, you should knock. There are some visuals sons just shouldn't have of their mommies.

J.R.: You know, who do you think you're kidding?

Babe: Mama -- Josh wasn't doing anything wrong. He doesn't deserve being told to leave town.

Krystal: Oh, I doubt I'm not telling Josh anything he hasn't already considered himself. You were pretty well-off growing up, weren't you? Had everything and anything you ever wanted. All you had to do was ask. I suppose a person could get kind of used to that thing -- getting what he wants. But Babe here -- she started out with nothing, so it makes her appreciate what she has now all the more. But you -- now, you are so used to leading an exotic life, you must be itching like a bag of fleas to blow out of this backwater. So, where are you headed to from here?

Josh: Well, I was going to go to Geneva to work as a doctor, but I had a change of plans thanks to Babe. She gave me a job here at Fusion and convinced me to stay in Pine Valley.

Krystal: Hmm. From medicine to mascara. Seems like kind of a demotion, doesn't it?

Babe: Mother --

Josh: That's -- it's ok.

Babe: Josh likes working here.

Josh: No, it's all right, Babe. I get it. And if I was your mother, I'd want me light-years away from you, too.

Erica: Babe Chandler and her mother kidnapped Bianca’s baby. And Babe’s own husband wanted to murder her, but he wound up almost killing my daughter Kendall and her baby instead.

Jeff: There's bad blood between the Carey-Chandlers and the Kanes. Point taken.

Erica: "Bad blood"? Kidnapping and attempted murder go way beyond "bad blood."

Jeff: Josh is free-falling right now. No matter how much we tell him that we want him in our lives, he -- he just won't believe it.

Erica: So being wanted by Babe Chandler -- that makes it all better?

Jeff: Josh doesn't have anything to hold on to. About the only thing he does have is his friendship with Babe. I mean, she understands him, she cares about him, and I think she's giving him something to fight for. Now, I -- I appreciate that you have had an ugly history with Babe. But as far as I'm concerned, she's our son's savior, and I'm -- I'm grateful for it.

Erica: Jeff, I really do appreciate that you have spent most of your life involved in humanitarian work. And you have developed a great tolerance for circumstances and situations and people. But your deep compassion for those less fortunate has blinded you, because Babe Chandler is no one's savior but her own. And I can see that I'm going to have to rid my family of her by myself.

Colby: Best news ever.

Sean: You want to come in?

Colby: I finally got ahold of Jesse McCartney's peeps, and it's looking like he might actually be able to play at my birthday party.

Sean: "Might actually"?

Colby: Probably, for sure.

Sean: Tight.

Colby: I know. Now, the bad news -- we have a tiny problem.

Sean: "We" don't have anything. I don't do problems.

Colby: What do you mean, you don't do problems?

Sean: I figured out a long time ago if I don't get involved, problems usually solve themselves.

Colby: Or they don't. Come on, I saw how well you handled it when your Aunt Erica busted you for having the party here. I mean, she didn't even call the cops. Obviously, it shows that you're the master problem solver. And since we're talking about my Sweet 16, I need the master.

Sean: Sweet 16?

Colby: Hello, are you high? My Sweet 16th birthday party? On September 7, the one you said you wouldn't miss?

Sean: You were going to call with the deets.

Colby: Yes. Consider this your 411. Now, about our problem -- my party is going to be crazy fun, don't get me wrong. I invited only the coolest. But -- there are going to be a few losers in the crowd, for reasons beyond my control.

Sean: So? Every party has a few losers thrown in.

Colby: Um, not mine. Come on, Sean, I need your help. Tell me how to freeze out the losers.

Terry's voice: "Have you ever felt as though you're actually relating to a person, there is a chance you could be friends, and then --"

Lily’s voice: "People are put off by my need for accuracy. They look at me as if I'm a fool, but a fact is a fact."

Terry's voice: "I'm not a bad person. I'm not mean. I don't lie. I'm just lonely."

Lily's voice: "I'm lonely, too. But typing to you makes me feel not so alone."

Terry's voice: "That makes me very happy."

Jonathan: You remember that you saw Terry outside Ryan’s penthouse? And you thought that he had somehow tracked you and Emma down? Well, Lily and I were at the penthouse that night, too. I don't think that he was lurking outside to catch you, Annie. I think that he's stalking Lily and that he was waiting for a moment just to get her alone. And it's just his good luck that you had an asthma attack, because he watched you be taken to the hospital by Jamal, and he followed you.

Annie: That could be true.

Jonathan: I know it's true -- I know it's true, but even if I was wrong, Terry McDermott knows Lily lives in Pine Valley. He knows where to find her -- at least Emma’s always surrounded by adults. If you lure Terry back to Pine Valley, you may as well hang a target around Lily’s neck.

Ryan: You're absolutely right. You're 100% right. Lily needs protection, too.

Jonathan: Well, she can't get it if I can't be anywhere near her.

Ryan: Now, hold on a minute. I have -- I have around-the-clock security on Annie and Emma. I'll just do the same for Lily.

Jonathan: Or you could just ditch the plan to lure Terry back to Pine Valley. Ryan, hey -- it's a bad idea.

Ryan: It's not. You're wrong. It's not a bad idea. It's -- is it risky? Yeah, it's -- it's a little bit risky, all right? It is, but it's the only way to stop Terry for good, it's the only way to put him away for good, and it's the only way to make sure that Annie, Emma, and Lily are going to be safe, not to mention every other innocent young girl.

Annie: Look, I -- I didn't like the idea, either. I am terrified for Emma, but Ryan’s security team really has been amazing; and, you know, I don't want to have to worry all the time about Terry being out there somewhere. I'd rather have him behind bars where he can't hurt my daughter or Lily or anybody else ever again.

Ryan: And I know you want that, too, little brother.

Jonathan: Oh, I do. I do. I definitely do.

Ryan: All right. So it's settled, right? I'll tell Jack, and I'll get protection on Lily ASAP --

Jonathan: No. No, no, no, no, no, no. I'm still Lily’s husband, Ryan. Let me tell Jack.

J.R.: Why don't you cut the bull, Hayward. I know you're not checking on my mother. You're here searching for that lead, the one I told you about to Kate.

David: Oh, boy. You have some wild imagination there, Junior. Well, imagine yourself all alone. Here -- let me help you.

J.R.: Oh, no, you're not going anywhere till I know you're not leaving with something that doesn't belong to you.

David: Back off, punk. Oh!

J.R.: I knew you had something. What do you got there?

David: I'm warning you --

J.R.: Hand it over!

David: Let go of me!

J.R.: You know what? Well, well, well. You sadistic piece of trash.

Josh: When Babe left with me the night of the ConFusion opening, I was grateful. My life had just been blown to shreds. I was humiliated, I was devastated -- forced to listen to the man I knew and loved as my father, bargaining for his life inside that coffin? And then I got to listen to him admit that I wasn't even his son. I wasn't even supposed to be born -- I doubt that you can understand what that felt like.

Krystal: No, no, you're right, I can't.

Josh: And then aside from a few pitying stares and a lame attempt by Erica and Kendall at a family reunion, everyone at that club pretty much stayed away from me, thought I was some sort of freak -- everyone except for Babe. She was the only one that cared how I was feeling. She was the only one that wanted to make sure I was ok. And she didn't try to force me to accept my new family or -- or sugarcoat anything. She just thought I might need someone to lean on, someone to vent to, and she was right. She saved my life.

Krystal: And you almost took hers.

Josh: Was I out of line taking her up in that airplane with me? Without a doubt. Should I have checked the gas gauge before we took off? Absolutely. But I wasn't thinking very clearly. My world had just been gutted and all I knew was that it just meant a lot to me that I had a friend like Babe with me.

Krystal: So you risked her life just because it made you feel better?

Josh: It was a mistake -- I know it, and I already apologized to Babe and now I'm apologizing to you. I know it's way too late, and I know that if you never forgive me, it's understandable. I know I put you through hell when that plane went down with your only daughter on it. But we did survive, because Babe is brave and smart and resourceful. She's also amazingly kind and amazingly generous, and from what she's told me, I'm looking at the reason why. Anyway, I got to get back to work, so I'll let you two talk. But I just hope you can see how much I respect Babe. And like you, I just want the best for her.

Krystal: Well, he is quite the charmer.

Babe: Yes. Josh can be an arrogant, pushy pain in the rear, but underneath it all, he's an ok guy. What?

Krystal: You really want to know?

Babe: Oh, since when do you ask?

Krystal: Fire him, Babe. Kick him out of your life right now, and I am talking today.

Colby: It's perfect. You're brilliant, Sean.

Sean: Every once in a while.

Colby: You know, you should start a "how to ditch geeks" blog.

Sean: Or not.

Colby: Yeah, maybe not. Wouldn't want to give away the plan before my big day -- a day I've been waiting for for a long time, thanks to you. Hmm.

Sean: Help you?

Jonathan: Is Jack here?

Sean: Uh-uh.

Jonathan: Ok. All right, I'll wait.

Sean: You can, but, A, I don't know when he'll be back and B -- I don't know you.

Jonathan: Ok, I'm Lily’s husband, and -- and who are you?

Sean: Sean, Jack’s nephew.

Jonathan: Ok. Do you have a number where you can reach him?

Sean: Yeah.

Jonathan: Ok, you better call him. Tell him there's an emergency at home.

Sean: Wild.

Annie: Emma, honey, you ok?

Emma: Yeah.

Dennis: She just found out there's a carnival in town.

Ryan: Ah. Cool. You want to go?

Emma: Yes.

Ryan: Ah.

Annie: Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa -- a carnival. That sounds kind of fun, doesn't it?

Annie: Yeah, it does sound fun, but unfortunately, I don't think we can go.

Emma: Why?

Annie: Oh, sweetie, um -- you know Mommy doesn't like being around lots of people these days, and carnivals have lots of people, so I'm -- I'm sorry, Emma.

Ryan: You -- you know what? I just had an idea. I have an idea. Why don't you draw me a picture of your favorite carnival ride, and by the time you're finished, I will have figured out a way to make you and your mom very happy.

Annie: Uh -- Ryan, look, I know you mean well, but you can't be promising her --

Ryan: Uh, uh, uh, wait, wait, wait, wait. Before you say it, there's something you should know about -- I never, ever make a promise that I can't keep.

David: Ow!

J.R.: You just dropped by to say hi to my mother, you lying sack.

David: Oh, get over it, Junior. Haven't you heard? All's fair in love and war and in the search for Kate.

J.R.: Yeah, you like throwing that word "love" around, don't you? As if you ever felt anything, as if my mother ever felt anything for you other than pity.

David: You don't have a clue as to what Dixie and I shared.

J.R.: Oh, she dissed you, David. How many times did she do that, huh -- told you to get lost, she didn't want anything to do with you? You know, maybe if she went of with Tad, you would've been able to handle it, but it must gut you to know that she moved on to somebody else, somebody like Slater.

David: If Dixie wants to ruin her life, she can be my guest.

J.R.: So it's not enough for her to ruin her own life -- you have to ruin it for her? My mother rejected you, she stomped on that scar tissue you call a heart. Now you want to make her suffer.

David: You don't know what the hell you're talking about.

J.R.: Yeah, sure I do -- if you can't be happy, nobody else can. That's your motto, isn't it?

David: Dixie is a damn fool for turning her back on me. No one will ever love her the way that I did. And if she thinks that Slater’s going to stick around past a few rolls in the hay, she is sadly mistaken. He couldn't care less about finding Kate. And no one would've fought harder than I would have. And Dixie will never know how far I went to bring that baby back to her -- to hell and back.

J.R.: You did it, didn't you? You buried Madden. You tried to impress my mother, and it backfired, and now you're a killer.

David: Are you out of your mind? I wouldn't kill anybody for your mother, especially after the way she treated me. I wouldn't swat a fly to help your worthless mother!

Babe: You must have mixed me up with a person bubbling over with friends.

Krystal: Oh, honey, you have me, you have your husband.

Babe: Yes, and other than family, I have Josh. That's it -- no one else. You know what? I like him. He's nice, he cares, he listens to me, and he's good at his job, and we need him around here, so no, I'm not going to fire him.

Krystal: And the fact that he's crazy in love with you -- what the hey?

Babe: He is not crazy in love.

Krystal: Oh.

Babe: Ok, fine. So he has a little bit of a crush.

Krystal: Oh, it's a lot more than that, Babe, and you know it.

Babe: He knows how much I love J.R. and that I'll never go there.

Krystal: Oh, you say that now.

Babe: Mama, how could you even suggest such a thing?

Krystal: Trust me, Babe. The line between friendship and passion can whittle down to nothing in the blink of an eye.

Babe: And Josh respects me and my marriage.

Krystal: If that were true, honey, he would back off.

Babe: I can't believe you're saying this right now. You just heard him -- his whole world came crashing down. He needs me right now. He doesn't even know who he is. There's no way I'm going to bail on him right now.

Krystal: Well, so get him a shrink. It's not your job to fix Josh. You have your whole family to worry about.

Babe: I am not going to cut him off.

[Krystal sighs]

Krystal: Do you want your marriage, huh? Do you want it to work? Do you want to stay with J.R.?

Babe: I cannot believe that you're actually asking me this right now. You, of all people, know how much I love J.R.

Krystal: Look, I thought so, honey. But you are playing with fire right now, and you are minutes away from your life as you know it going up in smoke.

J.R.: You know, you can deny it until you keel over, Hayward. But I'm right -- you buried Madden. You tortured him to the point of death, just so you could be the first to find Kate. You never planned on that evil bastard dying, though, did you? But things happen and now you're a killer.

David: I wouldn't step on a cockroach to help your mother after the way she treated me.

J.R.: Yeah, but you would frame her for a crime that you committed.

David: Wrong again! I don't care enough about Dixie to help her or frame her. All I know is that she does not deserve that little girl.

J.R.: She dumped your sorry self and now you want to make sure that she never sees her daughter again? I don't think so!

David: All right, listen to me, Junior. If you were smart -- and believe me, I realize you're not, ok -- but if you were, you would forget all about Dixie, too. She obviously doesn't give a damn about you. I mean, she's not loyal to anyone, is she? She's used all of us -- you, me, Tad, Zach, even that loser in Europe -- just to get what she wanted at the time. Dixie has milked so many unsuspecting people, she belongs in a prison cell. That whore deserves to fry.

Babe: I go through this with J.R. on a regular basis. I never thought I'd have to defend myself to you, Mama.

Krystal: I -- I'm not asking you to defend yourself, I'm only trying to make you aware.

Babe: No, you don't trust me to be loyal to my husband. You just said it. It doesn't matter how many millions of times I told Josh that this isn't going to go beyond friendship. And it doesn't matter that he needs a friend right now more than anyone has ever needed a friend, and maybe I need one, too.

Krystal: You know what? When Josh looks into your eyes and tells you that he'd be lost without you, that's right. None of that matters. Let me tell you something. I know from experience that logic and good intentions go right out the window when a man tells a woman that he'd be desperate without her.

Babe: How shallow do you think I am?

Krystal: Honey, you're a woman. Please, it's only natural that you'd be attracted to Josh.

Babe: You are so wrong. I don't want Josh that way. I have my husband for that.

Krystal: Ok, ok. Right, so J.R. fills your romantic needs, and Josh fills your emotional ones? Come on, Babe.

Babe: What if that is true? Seriously. You know, it's nice having someone to talk to. I adore Little A to death, but he's got a ways go before he's discussing deep, real-life topics other than his blankie. And J.R. share his feelings? Please. He'd die first.

Krystal: You say you love J.R.

Babe: I do.

Krystal: Ok, then why don't you put yourself in his shoes for a change? And think about it. What if he said that he -- he had a newest friend? Some busty sex-kitten who admitted that she was after him, but he swore that he was only keeping her around for the stimulating conversation?

Babe: I trust my husband. And if he said I had nothing to worry about, I would believe him.

Krystal: Bull pucky. You would be crawling out of your skin, the same way he is. And he has good reason, Babe. I don't care what Josh says about respecting your marriage, that boy's after you.

Babe: I never thought you would take J.R.’s side over mine.

Krystal: Oh, honey, I have never taken anybody's side or cared about anybody's side but yours, but you are so caught up in playing buddies with Josh that you can't see the truth. You can't have Josh and J.R. both. You can't have the loving, distant husband at home and the hunky, platonic friend at work. It's not going to stay that way, honey. One of them's got to go.

[J.R. pants after knocking out David.]

J.R.: You lose, Hayward. It ends here. Oh. You not only killed Greg Madden, but you tried to frame my mother for murder. And you slipped that disc of his dying last words in my sock drawer. Well, now, it ends here. You're going to prison.

[Suddenly, David comes to life and kicks J.R. in the face.]

J.R.: Oh!

David: I don't think so.

Babe: All those years that you stood by me, had my back, told me that I could do anything that I set my mind to -- was it always a load of BS, or did you just recently come to the conclusion that I'm an idiot, and I can't think for myself?

Krystal: You are putting words in my mouth.

Babe: I don't have to. It's pretty clear how you feel.

Krystal: Babe, you're misunderstanding me. I am just trying to make you see that you are headed down --

Babe: You know, I have a mind of my own, and I'd like to use it for something constructive -- which means work. Which means this conversation just ended. Good-bye.

Josh: You all right?

Babe: Nothing like having the mother you always counted on to start doubting you.

Krystal: Oh, great. Great, this is just what I need. What are you –

[When the elevator arrives, Erica yanks Krystal inside it and closes the doors.]

Jack: I'm not going to tell you again, Jonathan. Stay the hell away from my daughter. As a matter of fact, get the hell out of my house.

Jonathan: Jackson -- Jack, I did not come here to see Lily, I came to see you.

Jack: Well, certainly not to try to convince me to change my mind about something.

Jonathan: Lily is not safe! The same molester that tried to attack her in New York -- he's headed back to Pine Valley.

Annie: I would love to take Emma to the carnival.

Ryan: Me, too.

Annie: But we can't be in crowds, Ryan, especially after Terry threatened --

Ryan: I'm not asking --

[Phone rings]

Ryan: To put your child in any kind of danger. That's not what I'm asking. Just -- hello? That's fantastic. That's perfect. Great. Thank you. Emma, guess what. The carnival opens in a half an hour.

[Ryan gasps]

Annie: Ryan, please don't get her hopes up.

Ryan: But only to some VIPs Emma. Actually, the VIP. Do you know what a VIP is?

Emma: Yes.

Ryan: Well, good, then, because you happen to be one, right? And so is your mom and so is Dennis. And because, you know, I know you guys, I get to come, too. And so we get the carnival all to ourselves for a whole hour. Isn't that great?

Emma: Mommy, we're going.

Annie: I heard. Well, what do we say to Ryan, sweetie?

Annie and Emma: Thank you.

[Annie chuckles]

[David succeeds in knocking out J.R. and leaves with Emma’s photo.]

David: All right. Thanks for the workout, kid.

Sydney: Hey, dude. Yo.

Sean: Hey. What's up, Sydney?

Sydney: Hmm, this and that, you know.

Sean: You come by for a reason?

Sydney: Yeah. I just wanted to let you know that my birthday party's a go on September 7. Hopefully, you don't have other plans? But it's going to be pretty tight. Jesse McCartney should be playing and everything.

Sean: Ok, is that guy really big on the party circuit here, or is your --

Sydney: I -- I doubt it. Um -- not important. The thing that bites is that I have to share the party with another girl who's turning 16. Some stuck-up, pretentious poser named Colby. What's so funny?

Sean: "Pretentious poser" -- that's -- that's a good one.

Sydney: Hmm. She is one. And it's so not hilarious. Please, Sean, help me find a way to put that trashy little brat in her place.

Jack: Well, Jonathan, I don't think we have to worry about Lily running into this Terry person on the streets. She refuses to leave her room because of you.

Jonathan: Jack, is that what you wanted? Is it? Did you want to box Lily back up into her little shell there?

Jack: No, Jonathan, I didn’t. But you're the one that did this to her, not me.

Jonathan: No, no. I did not. I did not pull Lily’s life out from under her. I tried my damndest to keep things the way that she wanted them, the way that she needed them.

Jack: Sure you did. Just as long as it didn't involve telling the truth.

Jonathan: Lily was happy with me, whether you want to admit it or not. How happy is she now, Jack?

Lily's voice: "I'm just not meant to be happy the way normal people are."

Terry's voice: "I know exactly what you mean."

Lily's voice: "It's very nice to talk to someone who actually understands."

Terry's voice: "I'm glad you think so. I do, too."

Annie: You're a genius. How did you ever swing it so Emma could be the guest of honor at the carnival?

Ryan: Oh, I can't possibly reveal my contacts.

Annie: Well, I can't thank you enough. You've made Emma’s year.

Ryan: Well, she's a very sweet, very beautiful little girl. She obviously takes after her mother's side of the family.

Annie: Actually, Terry isn't Anna’s biological father.

[Door opens]

Annie: Oh.

Emma: The merry-go-round.

[Annie laughs]

Annie: Yes. Come here, you. Oh.

Babe: It's just such a weird feeling. Mama and I never fight. I mean, never. And she's always been my biggest supporter. It just feels so weird being angry with her.

Josh: Well, look at the bright side. At least you know she's really your mother. It's not like you're going to walk into the grand opening of a chicken shack and hear over the loudspeaker that your old boss at The Roadside was really your mom.

Krystal: My day has been rotten, Erica. Trapping us together in an elevator is probably not the best idea you've ever had.

Erica: Well, you know something? My day hasn't been so great, either. So you want to get out of here, you get your trampy, skanky gold digger of a daughter out of my son's life.

Krystal: Me? Why don't you call off your horny, pushy, marriage-vow-disrespecting son?

Erica: Josh is not the problem.

Krystal: Are you for real? He can't even look at Babe without his tongue hitting the floor.

Erica: Oh! If that's even true, it's because your daughter, Babe, threw herself at him.

Krystal: You know, if I didn't know better, I'd actually think that you gave a damn about that boy. But we both know that you cannot erase the fact that you have spent the past 20-plus years considering Josh one giant mistake.

Erica: Oh. You are the one who has just made one giant mistake, Krystal. How dare you even comment on my relationship with my son.

Krystal: Josh Madden is a disaster waiting to happen, and I don't want Babe anywhere near him when tragedy strikes.

[J.R. lies on Dixie’s bed unconscious and bleeding from the head.]

Babe: J.R., it's me. I wish you were answering. I -- something came up, and we have to go to Philadelphia right away. Um -- we have this chance where Zarf might actually let me use his music for my campaign. Can you believe it? But anyway, he wants to talk and go over some details before he'll agree to anything, of course. But -- um -- I'll keep trying you. Call me when you get this, ok? I love you. Bye.

Krystal: I'm a control freak?

Erica: You are the biggest --

Krystal: Oh, you have some nerve -- Babe --

Erica: Josh?

Josh: Let's take the stairs.

Jonathan: Ok, all that I'm asking you is that Lily is taken care of at all times. She cannot be left alone until they catch that pervert.

Jack: I certainly don't need you telling me how to protect my daughter, Lavery.

Jonathan: She's still my wife, Jack.

Jack: Not for long, she isn’t. I've already filed the annulment papers. Your marriage to Lily is going to be done with in a blink. Like it never existed. But of course, legally, it never did.

Jonathan: Oh, yeah. Um -- our marriage was real. Lily was happy. Now, how can you take that away from your daughter? Huh? How can you look at yourself in the mirror, knowing that you've single-handedly destroyed her life?

Lily's voice: "Do you dream?"

Terry's voice: "Sometimes."

Lily's voice: "Are you normal in your dreams?"

Terry's voice: "Almost never."

Lily's voice: "We appear to think alike."

Terry's voice: "Very much so. Do you think the two of us could meet sometime?"

[As carnival music plays, David spies on Emma at the park, comparing her to the picture he’s holding.]

Ryan: You see? You see? There it is. Can you -- can you see the lights?

Annie: Oh, isn't this exciting?

Ryan: Can you see the lights? Come on.

Annie: Come on.

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

Annie (to David): Why are you following us?

Ryan (to David): You'd better have a really, really good answer.

[Josh and Babe are high on drugs.]

Josh: We should get you back home.

Babe: J.R. cannot see me like this.

Tad (to Dixie): Any questions about J.R., ask him. I found him standing over J.R.’s lifeless body.
