Annie: Oh, Ryan. Hey.
Annie: Good to see you. Um -- you really need to do something about these.
Ryan: Are you serious? Why all of a sudden are you interested in my plants?
Annie: No, I -- I just thought they could use some TLC. That's all.
Ryan: What's wrong?
Annie: Nothing. No. Emma's upstairs watching TV and everything else is going according to plan. Could you hand me that soil? Thanks.
Ryan: Terry made contact again, didn't he?
Annie: You bet. It's like I wore a big old sign saying "come and get me." Oh, this stuff won't work -- way too much acid.
Ryan: Did he take the bait?
Annie: Like a bull to a red cape. It's a good thing it was long-distance. I could practically hear the steam coming out of Terry's ears when I reminded him Emma’s not biologically his.
Tad: You expect me to be your star witness?
Zach: The only thing Martin is a witness to is his own bitterness.
Derek: Whatever it is, it's all on tape. Thanks to your firsthand account of Zach and Dixie’s actions the night Greg Madden disappeared, I have everything I need.
Tad: You've got nothing. I can't believe you would do this to me. So you get -- so you get a little sneaky and wire the place for sound. Your little taped eyewitness account doesn't mean anything. It's worthless. It's bubkes.
Kendall: Good morning, lovelies. What did I miss? What did I miss?
Simone: Actually, we're just going through the new fall line.
Kendall: Ooh. Let me see.
Kendall: Check this out here.
Simone: Launch list?
Kendall: Yes. Thank you, thank you.
Erin: Very cool.
Simone: I like that.
Kendall: That's pretty.
Simone: Yeah, that's really good.
Kendall: Did you do that?
Erin: I did.
Josh: Excuse me, ladies. Kendall, can I speak to you alone?
Kendall: Can you guys give me a second? Can you -- why don't you go check out these numbers?
Simone: Of course.
Kendall: Thank you. Are you ok?
Josh: Yeah. Um -- Erica busted into my room this morning, thought it would be a great place to have breakfast.
Kendall: Ah. That didn't go well.
Josh: Yeah, well, you two have a connection and that's -- that's great. That's your choice, that's your business. I will never see Erica for anything other than a model who chose the cover of a magazine instead of me. I mean, I had a mother, a wonderful and sweet mother who loved me. She took me to baseball games, soccer practice, and even my pseudo dad loved me, as twisted as he was. And now I have no one. I'm all by myself. And I only have one hope at some connection, one hand that's reaching out.
Kendall: Here, why don't you sit down a minute? Um -- wow. I -- this -- this is -- this is amazing. I'm -- I'm really touched. I mean, and I know that we do have a long way to go, I get that, but maybe we can do this.
Josh: Kendall, we do have a long way to go and maybe someday we'll get there, but I didn't mean you.
Kendall: Oh. Ok, well, then who is your one hope of connecting?
Josh: I'm talking about Babe.
Babe: You were listening to a private conversation.
Colby: Why so private? Zarf is so hot in that "I don't shower every day" kind of way. Josh must've been supremely awesome to score him for Babe’s little campaign. How drunk was everybody?
J.R.: It's not a little campaign. When Babe wants something, she gets it.
Colby: No offense. Fusion's great, but Zarf? Zarf? I mean, what else did you guys do?
J.R.: Shut it, Colby.
Babe: Guess we caught him on a good day.
Colby: Night. You caught him at night, way into the A.M., Right? Oh. What I could do with Zarf in a hotel room -- hmm -- or Josh.
Colby: Or both.
J.R.: Something your brother doesn't want to hear.
Colby: Then I'll let Babe tell you about it.
J.R.: Get out, Colby. Time to go.
Babe: Say something, J.R. Whatever you're thinking, whatever, just get it out.
J.R.: You told me all about your trip to Philly. But you never mentioned that Josh went with you.
Josh: You don't look ok.
Kendall: Well, I -- I don't know how to respond. You, my brother, just named Babe Carey Chandler as your only route to human attachment?
Josh: Well, what can I say? Take it as the truth.
Kendall: No. I take it as nauseousness. It's making me nauseous, it's making me ill. I need a bucket. Find me a bucket somewhere. I need to purge.
Josh: Listen, you say you want to have a relationship? Just shut up and listen to me for a second, all right? Listen, Babe makes me care about what I do, who I hang out with, where I live. She makes me want to --
Kendall: Ok, great. That's lovely. I'm very happy for you. But don't ask for my help with the killer obstacle between you two, because J.R. might actually kill someone this time.
J.R.: Why didn't you tell me the truth about Josh?
Babe: If I would've gotten ahold of you on the phone when I called, I would've told you everything.
J.R.: But you didn't get ahold of me.
Babe: When I got home and I found out you were in the hospital, I didn't want --
J.R.: You didn't want me upset?
Babe: Not that there was any real reason for you to be upset in the first place.
J.R.: So you and Josh spent a couple of hours with Zarf, right?
Babe: A couple of ridiculous, shot-filled hours, yes.
J.R.: Hmm. Am I allowed to ask how you and Josh spent the rest of your night?
Erin: You hooked up with Josh for real?
Simone: Ok, that's old news.
Erin: Well, how many times? Was it good? Come on.
Josh: Babe's in love with J.R. Why? I'll never know. But I care about her and she's married to that pig. There's nothing I can do about that.
Kendall: Well, you can start by letting her self-destruct on her own time.
Josh: There is something I can do for her.
Josh: She happens to be in business with you, the sister who says she wants to be close to h newfound brother.
Kendall: You have got to be kidding me.
Josh: What? Here's your chance to start reaching out. Just stop freezing her out, stop putting her down, stop making her life here a living hell.
Kendall: Oh, ok. So what you're saying is be nice to Babe, the woman who has completely trashed my family, our family, I can't even tell you how many times. And if not, then I'm not worthy to be your sister?
Josh: You'd be doing me a favor, extending yourself -- what family does or so I'm told.
Kendall: This is emotional blackmail -- you know that, right? "Be nice to the skank I'm hot for or I won't be the brother you want me to be, the brother that you need during this rough time in your life"?
Josh: You can start by substituting "Babe" for "skank."
Kendall: You are a Kane from the top of your relentless head down to the bottom of your scheming heart.
Erica: Sean? Did you reach your mother yet?
Sean: Not yet. She won't pick up the phone. You hungry, Aunt Erica? I'm starving.
Erica: I beg your pardon?
Sean: Well, I was going to make a sandwich and I thought --
Erica: Yeah, well, you can make a sandwich after you clean up the mess you made in the guest room like I asked you to hours ago.
Sean: Clean up room -- check. You want a sandwich?
Erica: No, thank you.
Sean: Ok. Hey, those are some hot pictures, Erica.
Erica: Ok. Barbara, you will pick up the phone for me.
Erica: Oh. Look, just because you have abdicated your parental duties doesn't mean I have to be the babysitter. Ok, I'm just going to call every single hotel in Europe until I find you, Barbara. You're going to come here and you are going to pick up your son.
Jack: I want to talk to you about Sean.
Erica: Well, the only thing I want to hear about Sean is when he's leaving.
Jack: He's not.
Sean: Hey, Uncle Jack. I'm making sandwiches -- you want a couple?
Jack: Erica and I are right in the middle of something right now. Could you give me minute, Sean, please?
Sean: No worries. Bet Lily’s husband could use one. He must be starving after standing outside all night.
Jack: Jonathan Lavery’s outside?
Ryan: Great. Thank you, Aidan. You let me know if anything changes. Ok, man. No changes. He's -- Terry's still in Ireland.
Annie: Hmm. Good to know he's still stalking me from across the pond.
Ryan: You're safe and you still have my security on you 24/7, so --
Annie: Yeah. Don't worry. I -- Terry doesn't scare me at all.
Ryan: Wow. That's a load of -- something.
Annie: Hey, I am more confident than nine out of 10 mothers provoking their molesting exes from -- to snatch their kids.
Ryan: I mean, we can -- we can bump up the security if you want. I can even get some more guards and --
Annie: Hey, how's spike?
Ryan: Uh -- he's great. Thank you for asking. He's doing really well. He even slept through the night.
Annie: Hmm. Is Kendall ok?
Ryan: Yeah, she's good. I mean, she's frazzled, which is understandable, I guess, you know? She's a much better mother than she gives herself credit for. She -- she really truly loves spike. She loves him more than anything. You know, when it comes to him, she's all his.
Ryan: I mean, it's not like she's holding him in one arm and baking cookies in the other. You know, she's not like that, she never will be, but that's what makes her Kendall. Spike's lucky to have her. So, what are you really asking?
Annie: How are you planning to protect spike and Kendall from the monster who buried a man alive?
Zach: You all right there, Martin?
Tad: You really earned your gold shield today, didn't you? Congratulations, Derek. Well done. You sneak into your friend's house, you plant a couple of bugs, have the gumption to follow this one over here, and all so you could tape a conversation the jury's never going to hear. Your high-tech stakeout is worthless without a court order.
Derek: I have a court order.
Tad: Really? Well, just curious -- where did you get it? Did you pick it up at the mall on your way over or is it special delivery?
Derek: I got an order for this house, your office, your car, your garage, your phone, even your gym locker if I needed it.
Tad: You can't be serious.
Derek: I got the orders weeks ago after listening in on your little jailhouse visit to Zach and Dixie. You made it very clear you knew way more than you were willing to tell, so I wired you, listening to every word you've spoken for weeks. But this, today, was the payoff. You said everything I was waiting to hear.
Zach: All of them lies.
Derek: You saw Zach and Dixie at the airport sliding a body into Dixie’s trunk the very night Madden disappeared. It's over.
Zach: There's a little thing called a trial, Derek.
Derek: Minor detail in this case. You're finished, Slater. And so is Dixie.
Tad: You son of a bitch.
Zach: You may want to let go of the chief.
Tad: You call yourself my friend?
Derek: Stand down, Tad, before you get hurt.
Tad: Don't -- don't you tell me to stand down. How much have we been through together? How long have we known one another? Too long for you to do something like this. U ever heard the word "loyalty"? How about "privacy," Derek, huh? So where'd you put it? Right -- in the sofa, in the furniture, in the lamp? Where? Don't tell me the phone. It's too stereotypical. Oh, here we go, what about -- perfect. In the lamp -- ok, there's one. So how many more are there, huh? 50, 100, 1,000? The place is covered with bugs.
Zach: Not exactly the Royal Shakespeare Company, but he's doing well. He's pushing through. It's a nice performance.
Derek: Shut up, Slater.
Zach: Let me ask you something. You went to the police academy. They must've taught you what's real and what's fake, right? He's upset because I slept with Dixie and Dixie signed away his daughter. Come on, you got a badge, you've got a gun. You can figure this out.
Derek: I suggest you give Livia a call. Your best bet for a lenient sentence is to make a deal with the DA.
Zach: I can't do that. Excuse me.
Derek: All right, thanks, fellas. Everything's good. I'll see you back at the station.
Tad: Derek? Can I have a minute? I -- I realize that I owe you an apology. All I can say is that this whole thing with Dixie’s gotten me so crazy, I don't know whether I'm going or coming half the time. I know you were just doing your job.
Derek: Look, this isn't fun for me, either. I mean, I can do without Slater, but you know I like Dixie. I always have.
Tad: Well, how do you go from a woman like that to somebody that could bury a man alive?
Derek: Under Slater’s influence.
Tad: I hate him. I hate his guts. Imagine being married to a woman like Kendall and still finding time to sleep with my wife. Ok -- ex-wife. In any case, the point is that jealousy can make you do strange things sometimes. I mean, it could turn a mild-mannered PI into a two-headed monster, so I -- I guess that's why I did what I did.
Derek: Why you did what?
Tad: I made it up -- the whole thing about Dixie and the body and Slater. I mean, it's just a story. I mean, I'm sorry that I -- I opened my mouth, but the truth is it's nothing but a lie.
Jonathan: Jack -- Jack, let go of me.
Erica: Jack, what's going on?
Jack: I told you, stay off my property. What the hell are you doing out there anyway?
Jonathan: Watching out for Lily.
Erica: Jack, please.
Sean: Maybe we should get popcorn instead of sandwiches.
Jack: What, are you a stalker now, Jonathan? Is that it?
Jonathan: No, Jack, I'm not a stalker. I'm just wanting to make sure that Lily’s safe.
Jack: She's safe. She's far away from you.
Erica: Ok, calm down. Everyone calm down.
Jack: I'll calm down right after I call the cops.
Jonathan: Oh --
Sean: I'm sorry I started this. I shouldn't have said anything.
Jonathan: Jack, I'm not here to see Lily.
Jack: Well, then suppose you tell me why you're standing outside my house all night?
Jonathan: I'm not peeking through your windows.
Jack: Oh, well, I guess we should be thankful for that, huh, honey?
Erica: Jack --
Jack: Like I'm going to believe anything you say.
Erica: This is enough, Jack.
Jack: No, it's not enough. In case you haven't noticed, Lily doesn't want to see you anymore, Jonathan.
Jonathan: Oh. Ok, well, thank you, Jack. In case you haven't noticed, I was standing on the opposite side of the house!
Jack: Yeah, stalking!
Erica: Why are you here, Jonathan? Why are you here? Is everything ok?
Lily: Too loud, too loud, too loud, too loud. Too loud, too loud, too loud, too loud, too loud, too loud.
Ryan: Zach would never, ever hurt Kendall. He would never hurt spike. They're safe. I would never leave them, either of them, in the hands of a violent man. I would never do that.
Annie: Yeah, but unfortunately, monsters don't come with labels stamped on their heads saying "Homicidal maniac," "Wife beater."
Ryan: Yeah, I'm just going to take this for one quick sec, ok? Listen. I once left the woman I loved because of fear -- fear that I was going to hurt her and my child, fear that I was that monster. I was willing to give them up to make sure that I didn't cause them any pain, give up my life so I would never, ever put Kendall, the woman that I -- the mother of my child, in that position. I would never do that ever.
Annie: But you never did physically hurt any of them, did you?
Ryan: No. But I've been where you are. My old man was just like Terry. I mean, in his own twisted, sort of sadistic way, he was a lot like Terry, ok, so I know what happens to a kid who grows up in a household where he's not loved. Zach isn't Terry and he's not my old man. He's not even close. He loves Kendall.
Annie: So Zach is innocent. He didn't bury that man.
Ryan: I know that he would give his own life before he'd let Kendall or spike get hurt, I know that. I know the charges are going to be dropped and I will do everything in my power to make sure that happens.
Annie: You're very generous. Is there anyone in this town you aren't helping?
Ryan: Well, the man happens to be married to the mother of my child, so --
Annie: Hmm. Ok, so Zach is innocent of murder and if that's what you think, it must be true, but he's still cheating on Kendall, so the -- the marriage is finished, right?
Ryan: Well, you know, however mad she is about the affair, I think that she still loves the guy, and after the trial, I guess anything could happen.
Annie: Hmm. Why would Kendall want her cheating husband back when she could have someone as incredible as you?
Kendall: Ok, so basically, you're standing here right now telling me to get over it.
Josh: Just more like "move on."
Kendall: Right, ok. It's kind of hard to move on when the person you're moving on from is in your face six days a week.
Josh: Well, she doesn't have to be. You can do your job and let her do hers, a job she's doing pretty damn well at.
Kendall: Bottom line, I'm your sister. We're flesh and blood. Babe -- Babe isn't even your girlfriend. She's some -- she's a local maniac's wife. You need to get your loyalties straight here.
Josh: Yeah, well, flesh and blood didn't stop me from being tossed aside by our dear, sweet mother.
Kendall: Ok, you don't get to tell me how to feel about anybody.
Josh: Ok, maybe I don't. But I can suggest to you how to treat Babe. And blood or not, if I'm forced to choose between you and her, I will choose Babe, hands down.
Babe: After Zarf left, it was actually pretty boring. We ordered some food because I was hungry, and I fell asleep on the couch -- one too many of those gelatin shots, I guess.
J.R.: Hmm. Sounds pretty standard.
Babe: I did have some awesome banana pancakes.
J.R.: With peanut butter?
Babe: You know it -- all over. I don't know if it's because I was tipsy or what, but they were so tasty.
J.R.: Did the service attendant operator make fun of you?
Babe: Um --
J.R.: You didn't order them, did you?
Babe: Why does it even matter? Why do I feel like I'm being grilled?
J.R.: I'm not sure. Did you do something wrong?
Babe: I didn't do anything. I told you everything.
J.R.: But you would never have told me about Josh if Colby hadn't opened her mouth.
Babe: Why are you acting like I'm ding something? Are you accusing me of hiding something?
J.R.: Yes. Yes, I guess I am.
Babe: So what am I guilty of now?
J.R.: Josh is in love with you, right?
Babe: And I've told you a gazillion times that doesn't matter to me.
J.R.: And I told you not to hire him, but you did anyway.
Babe: It's called being a good friend.
J.R.: And so now you and your friend go on these overnight business trips where you get so drunk, you have to jump in the shower to sober up? You know, you give me all the 411, but you leave out the little detail that you went with your partner. What am I supposed to think?
Babe: I can't tell you what to think, J.R. I've already tried that and it didn't work.
J.R.: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Babe: Nothing. Never mind.
J.R.: What is it, more secrets? Something you're trying to hide from me?
Babe: That is not it and you know it.
J.R.: Out with it, Babe.
Babe: I vowed in that garden to love you for the rest of my life, but it didn't stop you.
J.R.: Stop me from what?
Babe: You know, I'm -- nothing. Never mind. It's stupid.
J.R.: Stop me from trying to kill you? Well, here we are -- back to this, back to that night.
Babe: I can't help it. You sit here and you talk to me about love and trust and honesty. I can't stop thinking about it.
J.R.: Will it be like this forever?
Babe: I don't know. J.R., please. Where are you going?
J.R.: To see my son!
Colby: Sorry about that, Babe. Next time, don't blow me off. Trust me and treat me like an equal.
Babe: Shut up, Colby.
Colby: You know, J.R. must've been super ticked about your little sleepover with Josh.
Babe: You are such a spoiled little brat. Stay out of my business.
Colby: Your business? At least we do have liftoff.
Babe: What is that supposed to mean?
Colby: You know, Babe, it's about time you hopped on the train to clue town. I've known it for a long time, and J.R. just got there, too. Josh Madden is totally your business.
Erin: Wait, wait. Wait, wait. Ok, you and Josh, business -- one night only?
Danielle: It happened, it's done, it's over.
Erin: Yeah, but was it romantic?
Simone: Ok, do we care?
Erin: Was he into crazy stuff? I need to know.
Simone: Do we care?
Erin: Oh. Yes.
Simone: All right. Another place, another time.
Zach: What's going on here? No balloons, no confetti? I thought you guys would be celebrating.
Kendall: Are you drunk?
Zach: I'd like to be.
Simone: You know, would you please leave?
Zach: I came here to drink some of Kendall’s champagne.
Kendall: Ok. What the hell are you talking about?
Zach: Dixie's coffin and my coffin -- just been nailed.
Ryan: Not everyone thinks I'm God’s gift to womankind.
Annie: Well, you're a gift to me.
Ryan: Believe me, you're the gift, certainly to my ego.
Annie: Well, you know, maybe your ego needs a little boost. I mean, you're giving me protection, you're giving Kendall support. What about what you need, Ryan? Aren't you allowed to need anything?
Kendall: Tad saw you and Dixie at the airport with a body?
Zach: It's not what happened, but that's what he said, yes.
Simone: Well, I'll take Tad’s side any day.
Zach: You would take anybody's side who will listen to you, Simone.
Kendall: This -- this is not happening.
Zach: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." I guess Congreve didn't know Tad Martin.
Tad: Derek, if you go through with this and the DA puts me on the stand, I'm going to have to tell him the truth -- that it's a load of bull. It's a story I made up to torment my ex-wife and her -- and her new boyfriend.
Derek: So now you just want to take it all back?
Tad: I don't know what I want to do. I'm just saying that it's going to look really, really bad for the prosecution. It's going to look really bad for everybody involved, do you know what I mean? Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I shot my mouth off.
Derek: That's not going to work. That's -- that's not a good idea, Tad. The DA is going to play that tape. You'll be charged with obstruction of justice, perjury, and any other charge he can scare up. At the very least, you'll lose your PI license.
Tad: Well, then, maybe it would be a good idea if we just didn't go through with it.
Derek: "I was so mad, the devil made me do it"? It's an obvious lie, Tad. It's never going to fly.
Kendall: I knew it -- that slut. That slut dragged you into this. I -- I don't understand how you can lower yourself into bed with a woman who would sign away her own child, a woman who would hide from her own family, clearly the most selfish woman on the face of this earth. And you jumped into bed with her, which is sick and absolutely repulses me. And you -- you wouldn't even be charged with a murder you didn't commit if it weren't for Dixie.
Zach: You can't put it all on her.
Kendall: No, I can do whatever I want and I want you out of here now. I'm not playing this with you.
Zach: I just thought you'd want to know, that's all.
Josh: You heard her, get out. Or do you need some help?
Simone: Don't let the door hit you in your butt.
Lily: No, no, it won't work! You can't fix it now!
Jonathan: Lily --
Lily: No, no, no.
Jonathan: I'm so sorry.
Lily: No, no, no.
Erica: Lily, come on.
Lily: No, no --
Erica: Let's go upstairs.
Jack: So, you proud of yourself? You've done it to her yet again. I'm calling the cops for real.
Jonathan: Good. You know what? Do. Please, call them. Have a squad car sitting out front here at all times to protect Lily from Terry McDermott.
Jack: And from you.
Jonathan: From me? Oh, I'm not going anywhere while Lily’s in trouble. You can drag me away if you want -- that's fine. The security team will be here around the clock to back up your security guards.
Jack: The security team? What security team would that be?
Jonathan: Me, Ryan --
Jonathan: Aidan, Jamal, all the other guys that wanted to work -- no. We all want the same thing, Jack -- for Lily to be safe.
Erica: Jack, he's only trying to protect Lily.
Jack: Thank you so much for all of your support.
Jack: I mean, really, is it really so difficult for you to stand behind me on this one?
Erica: And where have you been supporting me lately?
Jack: My God, I always support you, Erica.
Erica: You did, at one point. I used to be able to count on you to -- to help me with everything. I knew that you would -- you would drop everything and come and help me. But strangely enough, that is before we were man and wife.
Jack: Go on.
Erica: It's true. You were much more available to me then than you are now. I used to be able to just pick up the phone at any time and call you, and -- and I knew that wherever you were, you would drop everything and you -- you would answer. And we would talk things through. But now -- now we sleep in the same bed at night and we couldn't be further apart.
Jack: I agree. But you can't think for a second that this is the way I want things. My God, Erica, I waited so long to marry you. What did you think I was doing, biding my time till I could make you my wife, and then ignore you for the rest of our lives together? I am trying to make this work.
Erica: You are? I mean, apart from our family problems, which seem to be enormous and ongoing, I have the -- the tabloid press constantly harassing me, photographers camped outside my studio all the time. I have memories and reminders everywhere of that -- that depraved excuse for a doctor w violated me. So, what are you doing to help me through this, Jack? Exactly what are you doing to help me?
Jack: Erica, right at the moment, I have a daughter who's in crisis.
Erica: You don't think that I know that? You haven't seen how many nights I've sat up with her night after night with Lily ever since you ripped her out of the arms of the man she loves?
Jack: Oh, man, another plug for Jonathan? You know, don't get it. How can you be so magnanimous when it comes to a man, a murderer, who is lying to our autistic daughter, and yet so damn hard on the rest of us, even my brother's son?
Erica: I have nothing against your brother's son! I -- I hardly know Sean. I don't know, he seems nice. But his timing is really bad, don't you think? I mean, Josh is in chaos, Kendall’s in chaos, Lily’s in chaos, our marriage is certainly in chaos. Do you think we really need any more?
Jack: No. No, I Don’t. So I'll tell you what -- let's take Sean and let's throw him out, even though he has nowhere to go, because that will solve everything, won't it?
Erica: I can't talk to you when you're like this.
Kendall: Thank you, Josh, for defending me to Zach. It -- it was very kind of you, but you didn't have to. I can handle him.
Josh: It's called doing a favor -- for family.
Kendall: Yeah. Well, I don't understand what the hell is going on, because Zach is still defending Dixie even after she dragged him to jail.
Josh: Well, maybe Zach wasn't dragged anywhere. Maybe he went willingly wherever Dixie wanted him.
Kendall: Yeah, her bed maybe. But not -- not killing Greg. I can't see it. I think it was some sick story that Tad made up to get back at Dixie. I can feel the weight of your stare. Don't look at me like that. I'm not stupid. I know.
Babe: Hey, guys. So, I have an awesome idea on the marketing for the Zarf song.
Kendall: Excuse me. I have to find a bucket.
Ryan: Of course I need something. Everybody needs something. I mean, I need to be reminded on a daily basis -- actually, it's more like hourly, at least -- that Kendall loves Zach and not me.
Annie: And you're ok with that?
Ryan: I have to be. I'm not going to push her.
Annie: Hmm. And you won't be the consolation prize?
Ryan: No matter how much Kendall hates what Zach did to their marriage, she still loves the guy. He's her husband, you know? So I'm not going to fool myself and think that something could come up between us, between Kendall and me. I'm not, no matter what Zach did. I am nobody's saint. I'm really not. I never was, I never will be. I've hurt a lot of people, and I think Kendall’s probably at the top of that list, and I think it's time for me to step up when she needs me.
Tad: We're friends, we go back a long way. We worked together, you've helped me out, not to mention holidays and weddings --
Derek: It's my job --
Tad: And family picnics.
Derek: Thaddeus, please. Don't ask me to jeopardize my job.
Tad: You've known me throughout my entire history with Dixie, you know what she's done to me. We've raised children together. Please, please, Derek, let this one slide, for me.
Derek: I wish I could, but I can't. I'm -- I'm sorry, man. I -- I can't.
Colby: Do you have it?
Sean: Right here.
Colby: Oh. Ah!
Sean: Looks good, doesn't it?
Colby: Yeah. I can't wait to put it into action. Can we try it out tonight?
Sean: I know just the spot.
Babe: So the -- the song plays as we roll in this product segment.
Josh: And it goes right into the voiceover.
Babe: Yeah, then -- then it goes back to the beginning.
Josh: Brilliant. Think he'll go for it?
Josh: Huh. Zarf.
Babe: Oh -- yeah. Um --
Josh: Yeah, what about the radio campaign?
Babe: I -- um -- ahem -- have the copy. It's -- it's there somewhere.
Josh: It's right here. I got it. What do you think? A little too --
Josh: I was thinking it wasn't edgy enough. Hmm. Did you see the photos for the --
Babe: Josh, can you -- can you please stop doing that? Because if you keep moving stuff around, I'm never going to be able to find anything.
Josh: What's wrong with you?
Josh: Ok. I'm going to go take a break outside. You need anything?
Babe: I'm fine.
Ryan: You all right? Is Emma all right?
Annie: Yeah. Emma's fine. They just interrupted her TV show to announce there's an eyewitness in the Madden murder case.
Ryan: An eyewitness? You mean somebody saw Zach and Dixie?
Annie: The woman's ex-husband, they said.
Tad: J.R., there's something you need to hear from me.
J.R.: If you're going to go off about my mom again, I'm not in the mood. I'm tired of hearing about Zach and Dixie’s big affair. Do I like it? No, but I have to suck it up right now. My mom's a big girl, and you do, too. It's time for you to get a grip.
Tad: Just listen! Your mother spent years tracking Madden all over the planet. She couldn't find him. When she did catch up in Pine Valley, she did everything she possibly could to find out where Kate was, who had adopted her. She threatened, she manipulated, she even broke a couple laws -- none of it did any good.
J.R.: Where you going with this, Tad?
Tad: Zach Slater has been accused of things. He's been -- he's been tied to things that your mother would never dream about.
J.R.: Damn it, what is it?
Tad: They did it. Your mother and Zach Slater murdered Greg Madden.
J.R.: You're kidding me, right?
Tad: It gets worse.
J.R.: That's not possible.
Tad: I'm the witness for the prosecution.
Kendall: Zach, what are we going to do?
Zach: I didn't come this far to lose you now.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
J.R. (to Tad): There's no way that I'm going to let you slit my mother's throat in court. I'll bury you myself before I let that happen.
Kendall (to Ryan): We've got to shut Tad up.
Zach (to Dixie): The first thing you need to do is keep your ex-husband from talking. If you can't shut him up, I can.
