Kendall: Well, I am ready for a drink, but I do have one teensy reservation.

Ryan: Really? What, you mean Spike? Oh, he's totally dialed in. I'm serious, he's got his old man's place all to himself tonight, and he's got a smoking-hot nanny. You know, like an average-hot nanny is so terrible. He's great. He's never had it so good.

Kendall: All right, ok. No, you are right. Our son is living the high life. But his father, on the other hand, just suffered a bullet to his chest.

Ryan: Um -- actually, it was closer to the shoulder, but he lived to tell about it. Come on.

Kendall: Yeah, but it's a good argument for taking it easy.

Ryan: A better argument to celebrate. I'm serious. You know why? Because Spike's mom really, really needs an excuse to unwind herself. When was the last time you cut loose? When?

Kendall: Does being in a coma count?

Ryan: Definitely not. All right, let's just try to have fun tonight, can you do that, and just forget all the problems!

[At ConFusion, Jonathan hands Kendall and Ryan martinis while Amanda wistfully watches.]

Kendall: All right, yes.

Jonathan: Ta-da.

Kendall: Ah. Ok, yes, I'm down with that. I'm good.

Jonathan: Then that makes three of us because tonight is about living in the moment. Ok? Cheers.

Kendall: Good. Cheers.

Ryan: Cheers.

Kendall: Well, then, to tonight.

Jonathan: Clink-clink. There you go.

Ryan: And to whatever's in store. Cheers.

Jonathan: Cheers. There you go.

Tad: Excellent, just the person I want to see.

Krystal: Are you crazy, Tad? I told you whatever happened between us was a one-time thing, and it's never going to happen again.

Tad: Yeah, I know, I heard you the first time. Why don't you give me a little credit? What kind of dog do you think I am?

Krystal: Well, if you really want to know, Rover --

[Back at ConFusion …..]

Di: If Tad cares so much about his boys, then why is he throwing Dixie to the wolves? If she is found guilty, she could be sentenced to death. I don't see how Tad’s ok with that. And Jamie bailing on the family to -- to just avoid the unavoidable and you. What's up with that? Julia, I swear, I just don't know what's happened to this family.

Jamie: Guess who.

Julia: Hey, I -- I thought you'd be in Europe by now.

Jamie: Well, you're right, I should be. But I started thinking, why would I want to leave Pine Valley when Pine Valley has you?

Josh: You're letting me go. Letting me off early so I can go home and get some rest? You're firing me. Can I ask why? I thought we were creating some magic here. I mean, the campaign turned out incredible.

Babe: No question, but we are in the last phase of it. And once it's finished, that's it, done. I just think it's better for everyone if we stopped working together.

J.R.: Oh, there you are.

Babe: Hey.

J.R.: Hey.

[Josh and Babe look uncomfortable as J.R. hugs his wife.]

Jonathan: So, tushies down.

Amanda: Right, there we go. Dexter also made the most amazing tapas tonight, so I will have the kitchen send out an order.

Kendall: Thank you.

Jonathan: And what are we doing? We going to stick with martinis, or we going to switch it up to something more festive like, let's say, champagne?

Kendall: Hmm.

Jonathan: Nothing says celebrating like popping a cork.

Ryan: Hmm. You're in a good mood tonight, Hockett.

Jonathan: Well, why wouldn't I be? You know, I've got an awesome job, an even better manager. And what do I have to be down about anyway? So, what are you two celebrating?

Kendall: Well, Ryan’s not dead.

Ryan: Yes.

Jonathan: That's right.

Ryan: That's the one.

Jonathan: I like that one.

Ryan: Yeah. Well, and, you know, the fact that Annie got her daughter back, and no charges against her or you. There's always that.

Jonathan: I like that one, too.

Kendall: That is a good one.

Jonathan: It is a good one, yeah.

Kendall: I bet Annie can't wait to get the hell out of this town. She and Emma must be so excited to just go and get back to their old life.

Ryan: Actually, I'm going to try and convince them to stay in Pine Valley, keep working for me.

Kendall: So when can we get that champagne?

Jamie: When I made the decision to leave Pine Valley, I pretty much had it with this place -- the cops, my dad, Dixie. There was a lot that I was ticked about. But I realized running wasn't going to make any of it go away. So here I am, ready to face it all head-on. And besides, I'd miss the hell out of you. So, margaritas?

Julia: Yeah.

Jamie: Sounds good. And don't you guys go anywhere, because the second I get back, we are going to celebrate me back in the hood.

Di: Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water.

Babe: So what's the latest on Colby?

J.R.: Well, I'd say that no news is good news, but in this case --

Babe: Nothing at all?

J.R.: My dad went out with the Coast Guard. He said he'd call the minute that he heard something. I'm still waiting on that phone call.

Babe: Well, look, Josh and I have until morning to polish this campaign, but, sweetie, if you need me, Josh can finish it by himself.

J.R.: How many times have I told you I don't need you? Just stay and finish up with Josh. The sooner that you're done with him, the better.

Babe: So that hug just now -- you cling to me like you really needed me -- that was just for Josh's benefit?

J.R.: Don't start, Babe.

Babe: It could take a while to finish things up here, J.R.

[Phone rings]

Babe: Don't wait up.

J.R.: Well, it looks like the hack of all jobs is getting the ax. I guess you're not really getting that promotion to Babe’s lover after all, huh?

Tad: Listen, would you stop jumping down my throat long enough to let me explain something? Yeah, I came here because I wanted to see you, but not because I wanted to get away with anything underneath Adam’s roof. I happen to have more pressing things on my mind, or less pressing, as the case may be. I'm worried sick about J.R. I want to know how he's handling Colby’s disappearance.

[From the tunnel, Colby listens attentively.]

Krystal: It's killing J.R., Tad. It's killing all of us.

Tad: No, you don't understand. I want to know if he's handling it.

Krystal: Well, I wish I could tell you, but I haven't seen him much lately. Because when he's not out trying to track down his missing sister, he's doing everything he can to keep his mother out of prison. And if that breaks your heart, then look in the mirror and take it up with the guy staring back at you, because he's the one to blame.

Tad: Well, excuse me. I guess I came here underneath false pretenses. Either that or I'm suffering from a flashback. I assumed that you and I were friends. So what the hell did I miss?

Krystal: The night that Dixie was arrested, you were all in knots trying to figure out what to do, how to make it better for everybody. And I knew -- I knew you were sitting on something explosive, but all you had for me was that you had some kind of bead on Greg Madden’s killer.

Tad: Well, sweetheart, what did you want me to say, that I saw Dixie stuff a body in her trunk the night that he disappeared?

Krystal: You didn't have to say it, because I had a way of solving that problem without naming names or painting pictures, and I thought you agreed with me. I told you that whoever killed that snake Madden deserved a parade, not a trial, and I thought you agreed with me. So how did you end up on the top of a witness list, ready to annihilate Dixie in court?

Tad: Krystal -- you don't know the whole story. I don't have a choice.

Krystal: Oh. Please, Tad, there has not been a knot invented that you can't squirrel your way out of. Yeah, I'm sure it gutted you to learn that she wasn't the Dixie you fell in love with way back when. You were disappointed, I can understand that. Angry, resentful -- that makes sense. But out to ruin that woman's life, the mother that J.R. has longed for all these years. I mean, are you that bitter? Can you be filled with that much hate?

Ryan: Dr. Lavery -- have you met him? I don't think you have. He says that you need to, like, have fun, let loose, and laugh so hard that you can't breathe. That's what he said.

Kendall: Great, ok. So you want to asphyxiate me. That's lovely.

Ryan: Maybe that didn't come out the way I meant it, but you know what I meant.

Kendall: I do. I do, Ryan, but I just -- I don't think a mother should do anything!

Ryan: Come on, I dare you.

Kendall: I'm a mother now.

Ryan: I dare you to -- hi.

Amanda: I'm sorry. How great do these look?

Kendall: Oh, yum. Yum.

Amanda: Enjoy.

Kendall: Uh -- hey, Amanda. Have I shown you Spike's latest pictures?

Amanda: Uh, no.

Kendall: Well, you're in for a treat. Check these out. Come, come. Ok, look at how yummy he is.

Amanda: Aw.

Kendall: Isn't he cute?

Amanda: Really cute.

Kendall: Isn't he cute? This is when he first came back from the park, and he did not stop looking at that Maltese, that little dog.

Ryan: I got my work cut out for me tonight.

Kendall: Niko? Nigel?

Ryan: Yeah, I'm not sure.

Kendall: Not really sure.

[On the other side of the bar …]

Woman: Please tell me that's not a white stripe on your finger.

Second woman: You're married?

Jonathan: I was, but that's all over now.

Woman: So you're available?

Jonathan: Yeah. Yes, I am. You can say that.

Del: Check out Jonathan working the ladies, huh? When did he go all Colin Farrell on us?

Amanda: Don't panic, Del. I'm sure he'll leave some room for you.

Jamie: Hey, where'd Di go?

Julia: I asked her to let us have some alone time.

Jamie: Nice work, Julia. I don't know what you had in mind, but I figured we could order a little food while we drink these margaritas, and then head back to my place to make our reunion official.

Julia: I'm sorry, Jamie, but there isn't going to be a reunion. It's over.

Kendall: Ok, I can pick up this olive in this glass without making any bodily contact with the olive. Ok? I will not scoop the olive into the glass with my hand or use this snifter. I will do it with no bodily contact.

Ryan: Wow.

Kendall: Any takers?

Ryan: I'm in! Ten bucks says you're full of it.

Kendall: Oh, yeah?

Ryan: You can't possibly do it.

Kendall: Ok. Ok, you're on.

Ryan: Ah.

Kendall: Oh, sorry, sorry.

Ryan: I'm good. Go.

Kendall: Ready? Ah. Ah


Kendall: I thought so. Uh-huh. Yeah!

Ryan: I'm impressed. The only problem I have with it is I suggested a body shot, and you showed me a trick with an olive. That's a little buzz kill.

Kendall: You know what? Listen, I will give you -- oh, I'm sorry.

Ryan: It's ok.

Kendall: I will give you a chance to make your money back, I promise.

Ryan: Ok.

Kendall: In the meantime, I need six maraschino cherries and a straw.

Ryan: I got it. I've actually seen that trick once in Tijuana.

Kendall: Oh, yeah? No, this is good, you guys. You guys are going to love this.

Del: Hey, I heard about your breakup.

Jonathan: Yeah, it happens.

Del: Well, I know you and Lily had something special. I'm sorry.

Jonathan: Thank you.

Del: If you need any help forgetting, I got a couple of twins I can hook you up with who are in need of some serious attention.

Jonathan: I'll keep it in mind.

Amanda: What were you thinking? The guy's heart is in a zillion pieces. He is not looking for a nasty booty call with one or two or 10 of your skanky leftovers.

Del: Let me give you a little lesson on the workings of the male mind, Amanda. The best way to deal with a break-up is a hook-up.

Amanda: For the average jerk, maybe. Jonathan is not like that. Lily was the love of his life. There's not a woman in the world that could take his mind off her. He's probably the nicest, most decent guy I've ever met, and you're an idiot if you think that your male mind is anywhere near his.

Del: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you sure that it's Jonathan that can't get over Lily, or maybe you're a little hung up on Jonathan? You know, Mandy, you shouldn't waste your time with a head case like that. You need someone, I don't know, unattached and available.

Amanda: Don't even think about it, Del. Hey, you ok?

Jonathan: Yeah, I'm fine. Great crowd tonight, huh?

Amanda: Jonathan, you don't have to front in front of me. I know how upset you were when Lily asked you to leave the hospital.

Jonathan: She didn't ask me to leave, she demanded. She couldn't be in the same room with me.

Amanda: She's confused. She just went through a major trauma, just give her some time. She's going to see how much you did for her and how much you love her.

Jonathan: Can we not talk about Lily anymore? She and I are through, and I have to deal with that.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Did I just hear you right? You're giving up on Lily?

Jonathan: I lost Lily a long time ago, Ryan. She's safe now, so I have to back off. Her dad's going to make sure she stays safe, and then that's it. It's as simple as that.

Ryan: That's great and everything, and that would be ok if you can do it, but, you know, I know what she means to you. You going to be ok?

Jonathan: I'm fine. Really, I'm fine.

Julia: I had the best time with you, Jamie. It was unexpected and exciting and fun, but it's run its course.

Jamie: Oh, you're mad, because I was going to leave the country without you.

Julia: No. You invited me to go to Europe with you, I said no. That's hardly walking out on me.

Jamie: That's right. So I guess what you're saying is, you're just not that into me?

Julia: No, what I'm saying is it was great, but it's time that we both move on. It doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Jamie: Easy as that?

Julia: I know it's not what you expected. But I think, deep down, you know that I'm right.

Jamie: No, you're absolutely right. It's going to take a little getting used to, that's all. But you're ok? No hard feelings?

Julia: None at all.

[Before leaving her, Jamie bends down and confers a hot kiss on Julia.]

J.R.: You thought it was all in the bag, didn't you, Madden? All that time you spent kissing up to my wife, trying to turn her against me, convince her that you're the best man for her? I guess that all blew up in your smug little face.

Josh: Yeah, well, Babe’s letting me go at Fusion. She never said anything about cutting off our friendship.

J.R.: You don't stand a chance in hell with my wife.

Josh: Whatever you say, J.R.

J.R.: You think you know Babe? You think she confides in you? You don't have a clue. And as far as your job here, you might think that you made a difference, but that's just because Babe was too nice to tell you the truth. You're nothing but a glorified gofer. Yeah, yeah, it pretty much sucks for you right now, Josh.

Babe: Is everything ok here?

J.R.: Yeah. Couldn't be better.

Babe: You want to tell me what just happened?

Josh: Oh, yeah. J.R. was just telling me how sorry he was that I was leaving the Fusion family.

Babe: Look, I hope you can cut him a little bit of slack. His sister is missing, and his mother's about to go to prison.

Josh: Will you stop defending him? He's not worth it, and I wish you would see that.

Babe: I love him, Josh.

Josh: He has no idea how lucky he is, Babe. Do you realize that? If I was J.R., if you loved me as much you love him, I wouldn't let a minute go by that we weren't together.

Babe: If you're trying to sweet-talk me into giving your job back -- A for effort, but my mind is already made up.

Josh: Babe, this has nothing to do with the job, I mean it. I would do anything to be in his shoes. And if you want me to leave Fusion, if it makes you feel more comfortable, I'm not going to fight it.

Babe: I am still your friend, and I will still be here for you whenever you need me.

Josh: That's great. I appreciate that, Babe, but you know what? You can't spend your free time worrying about me. You have enough problems to worry about.

[In the dark tunnel, Colby continues to eavesdrop.]

Tad: For your information, I never intended to say a word to the cops about seeing Zach and Dixie with a body that night. Derek bugged my house. He taped every word of it when I confronted Zach with what I saw. Now my good friend the chief is threatening to turn around and play the whole thing in front of a jury.

Krystal: Ok. But do you expect me to believe that you're all broken up about it, given the fact that you've been going around spitting hate for your ex to anybody who will listen?

Tad: Krystal, what do you want me to say? That I'm not sickened by the thought of Dixie jumping into bed with Zach? I'm not going to say it, because I am. But I didn't want any of this.

Krystal: But here you are, ready to take the stand against her.

Tad: And here you are, pretending like I'm happy to do it. I haven't made an official statement yet. I intended to get out of town, I intended to flee the entire country before I could be served with a subpoena, and it would've worked. I would've gotten away with it, if that Dillweed Del hadn't stuck his size 13s in my way.

Krystal: Well, you know what? If you hadn't been trotting around acting like you had some kind of a big secret, Derek wouldn't have bugged your house in the first place. You put yourself in this mess.

Tad: You got that right. It's a mess and a mistake, and I hate all of it. If I don't testify, Derek is going to charge my boys with stealing evidence. If I do testify, there's a good chance I'm going to send my son's mother away for the rest of her life, and I don't even want to think about what it's going to do to J.R. And as angry as you think I am at Dixie, I would never want to hurt her in that kind of way.

Krystal: Well, there's something else you better think about, Tad. Because if you do hurt Dixie, she has enough ammo to turn right back around and fire at me.

Jonathan: Hey, Del, can I get two whiskey sours for Table 14?

Del: Coming right up.

Di: Jonathan, hey. Long time no see.

Jonathan: Di, hi. How -- may I?

Di: Sure.

Jonathan: How have you been?

Di: Ok. You seem good.

Jonathan: I seem what, like, 100%?

Di: Yeah, I wasn't going to say that, but yeah.

Jonathan: It's amazing what a hard blow to the head can do to lift the fog. I lost the stutter, I lost the innocence. I lost a lot of things.

Di: That bad?

Jonathan: Just trying to figure out where I fit in now.

Di: I know what that's like.

Jonathan: How's it working out for you?

Di: I'll let you know when I get there.

Jonathan: It's that hard?

Di: Well, when everything you knew about yourself and your future flies out the window, and that happy ending that you were banking on, it's suddenly impossible, yeah. Letting go and starting over is pretty damn tough.

Kendall: Look, I have a picture for you.

Waiter: Ok.

Kendall: Do you want to see the newest picture of my son?

Waiter: Yeah.

Kendall: Look at him, look at him, look at him. Isn't he cute?

Waiter: Yeah, he's real cute.

Kendall: Yeah, you want to see another one?

Waiter: I've actually got to get going.

Kendall: No! Come on, look, look, look! Look at the hat! I will give you a raise if you look at one more picture. For the love of God, doesn't anyone want to see my son? Hey, hey, do you want to see my son?

J.R.: Well, look who's the life of the party. I see you're all broken up about your husband rotting in a jail cell.

Kendall: He wouldn't be in there if it hadn't been for your mother.

J.R.: My mother wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for your husband.

Kendall: Ok, see, your mother took advantage of my husband. Zach risked his -- his freedom and our marriage for that whiny little rat.

J.R.: Oh, yeah, wow. Well, I can see that you are in some serious denial, Kendall.

Kendall: Yeah, you know what? Actually, I've seen dogs in heat subtler than that tramp you call "Mommy."

J.R.: I'm sorry, what did you say?

Kendall: Well, you heard exactly what I said.

Ryan: You heard what she said. You better back off, because I don't see any back-up for you here. And if you and I get into it, you're going to need it.

J.R.: You sure you want to waste your precious partying time teaching me a lesson, Ryan? I saw you and Kendall before you guys saw me. It looked like you guys were living it up.

Ryan: Well, if we were, we're not now, J.R. You got a way of doing that, you know that?

J.R.: Well, let me stop you from celebrating. If Zach in jail is your way of getting through this sick three-way you guys call a marriage, more power to you. But just so you know that if Zach drags my mother down with him, that's when I'm really going to have a problem.

Kendall: Ok, what are you going to do, J.R.? You going to throw more construction stuff on us? Or -- or, what, you going to pop in some new recording disc that you made? What?

J.R.: Give Zach my best. Say, are you going to crawl out of Ryan’s bed long enough to give your ex a conjugal visit?

Ryan: You know what --

Jamie: Hey, Ryan, Ryan --

Ryan: Get him out of here, Jamie. Get him out of here before I rip his head off.

J.R.: Yeah, I'd like to see you try that.

Ryan: Get out.

Jamie: Let it go. Come on.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, what are you -- Kendall, come on.

Jamie: You want to start explaining?

J.R.: Sure. Kendall's drunk, end of story.

Amanda: J.R., what is your problem? You get off on making scenes here or something?

J.R.: You want to know what my problem is, Amanda? My mother is up for a death-row sentence, and my stepfather's probably going to be the person that's most likely going to put her there, all because you couldn't keep Derek busy long enough so Jamie and I could get out of his office.

Amanda: You don't seriously think I'm the reason your mother may be convicted of murder?

J.R.: Yeah, that pretty much covers it.

Jamie: Come on, J.R., it's not Amanda’s fault that we got busted.

J.R.: Why don't you face it, Amanda? You blew it. You had a chance to do something good for once in your life, and you failed. So why don't you go back to doing something you're good at -- being Mommy's little monster?

Jamie: Hey, shut up!

Jonathan: What'd you say to her?

Jamie: I mean it.

Di: I know Jamie pretty well. Are you sure -- are you sure that splitting up is really what you want to do?

Julia: No. I want to be with him. I miss him so badly it's making me crazy.

Jamie: Your life sucks right now, I understand that. But don't put that on Amanda. None of it is her fault. You want to pound somebody, we both know who tops the list.

Josh: What do you think of this?

Babe: Let me see.

Josh: Do you like this or this?

Babe: Um -- I kind of think that one, don't you? I don't know, though. They both look good.

Josh: Yeah, this one's --

[Music plays as Babe and Josh work a little too-closely together.]

Colby: So Dixie has a secret on Krystal. Suddenly I'm liking being invisible.

Krystal: Sending Dixie to prison is going to blow my world sky-high.

Tad: Call it a hunch, but hurting you is probably the last thing on Dixie’s list right now.

Krystal: Yeah, well, I'm pretty sure that hurting you is pretty high on that list. Don't you think that when she is handcuffed and carted off to prison, that she's going to do everything she can to get even with you?

Colby: I can't hear. Speak louder, people -- no TV in here.

Krystal: I guarantee you, when it sinks in that she's facing 25 to life in solitary, because you helped her get convicted, she's not going to think twice about telling Adam that we slept together.

Colby: So annoying.

Tad: That isn't how Dixie operates.

Krystal: Oh, well, who would've believed that she buried a man alive, either, but here we are. Ever since she resurfaced, she's been full of surprises. And I cannot take the chance that she's going to drop one on Adam, especially now with everything that he is facing. His daughter is missing, possibly forever. He needs me, Tad. He needs to know that he can count on me. He can never find out what happened between you and me.

Tad: I can't believe you're calling him your husband. Lest we forget, you only married the man, so you could keep an eye on Little Adam while J.R. and Babe were separated.

Krystal: And how long ago was that, Tad? I'm still here.

Tad: Well, then maybe it's your last chance to get the hell out.

Krystal: Didn't you hear me when I told you, "I love Adam"? This isn't some act that I am putting on. I am in love with the man, really, truly, head over heels in love. And if you take apart my life with him, I swear to God, yours is not going to be worth living.

Tad: So this is for real? I mean, it's on the level? You're telling me that -- that you're in love with Adam?

Krystal: Yeah. Yeah, Tad. I love the stuffing out of him. I mean, do we have our differences? Sure we do. Do we disagree? Yeah, you betcha. But you know what? Arguing with Adam is a kick in the pants, because I don't have to pull any punches. And he's never offended by anything I say, because at the end of the day, he knows that there's nobody I'd rather be with than him. And when it comes to loyalty, even you have to admit that Adam is more committed to holding his family together than any man you'll ever meet. You know, I'm not crazy about the fact that I'm in love with him, and he's no happier about it, either. But we both realized sometime ago that whether or not this is what we wanted or expected or even imagined in our wildest nightmares, it's the best damn thing that ever happened to either one of us, and we do not want it to end.

Tad: Ok. Ok. As slow as I am to the gate, I get the picture. If you tell me you're in love with Adam, as much I think you need medication, I'm prepared to believe you. I care about you, too, and I would never do anything to hurt you or mess with you in any way. I don't believe that ever since I've walked in here this evening, every time open my mouth, you act like you want to throttle me to death, and don't tell me that's because you're cuckoo for Chandler puffs. There's something else going on. Are you sure there isn't something that you haven't told me?

Amanda: I'm fine, Jonathan. I can handle J.R.

Jonathan: I know that you can handle Junior, ok? It's -- I'm there for you, that's all. Anything you need, anytime.

Amanda: Thanks.

[Amanda takes a complementary drink to Jamie.]

Amanda: Here you go, Jamie. It's on the house -- for stopping your maniac brother from ruining another night at ConFusion.

Jamie: Amanda, don't let J.R. get to you.

J.R.: I'm right here.

Jamie: Us getting caught by Derek wasn't your fault. The trouble that Tad and Dixie are in, that's not your fault, either. You took a big risk helping us that day. We owe you.

J.R.: Speak for yourself.

Jamie: Will you shut up?

J.R.: Why are you kissing up to her?

Amanda: You know, you deserve to get busted on the sole grounds you're an ass. But I am sincerely sorry if I made life any harder for you or Tad or Dixie.

Jamie: Oh, she's right. You are an ass.

J.R.: Why are you letting her off the hook?

Jamie: Would you give it a rest? You're not the only one with problems.

J.R.: Oh, God. What happened to you?

[Jamie sighs]

Jamie: Julia dumped me for no good reason. How's that?

Julia: I didn't have a choice.

Di: Julia, of course you had a choice. You don't just break things off with a guy that you're crazy about, unless his ex-wife comes back from the dead.

Julia: When Jamie said that he was leaving the country, I thought I was cool with it. I told him to have a great life and thanks for everything, and it was fun while it lasted. We said good-bye, and we went our separate ways. And that's when I lost it. I was crushed, devastated. I actually cried, Di. And Jamie doesn't feel the same way. Brooke was right. She said that he's not ready for anything serious. You know, and how could he just leave me that easily?

Di: Julia, he came back for you.

Julia: No, he came back for his family. I know he said that I was part of it, but -- and I know that he'd be perfectly willing to pick up where we left off, because we had fun together. But he's not into anything long term.

Di: So what is wrong with having fun?

Julia: Nothing. Fun is -- fun is good.

Di: Fun is good.

Julia: Fun is good. But there's a time limit on fun, and when that time is up, I would be the one left with a serious heartache. So it's just -- it's just better just cutting it off right now.

Di: Well, maybe Jamie wants more, too. He said he couldn't leave you. You're not that much older than Jamie. Young guys have been known to settle down.

Julia: Trust me, it's better this way.

J.R.: I'm sorry about Julia.

Jamie: It's fine.

J.R.: I mean, it was just a fling anyway, right?

Jamie: Apparently for her.

J.R.: Come on, you -- you weren't, like, in love with her?

Jamie: I was in something.

Kendall: Well, we gave it a go. We did, we were almost there. One more bottle of champagne and even J.R. couldn’t have ruined the night.

Ryan: Somebody's got to strangle that guy, really. I mean, honestly, eventually somebody is going to.

Kendall: It's not him. I mean, not really. He just -- he just brought me back to earth and made me face the truth. My husband chose another woman over me. He lied to me, betrayed me, abandoned me and Spike, all because of Dixie. How could I be so stupid to make the wrong choice? How, actually, could I be so stupid to love him?

Ryan: Hey, hey, hey. Look at me. You're not stupid. You're trusting and loving and beautiful and devoted. And if Zach can't see that, then maybe he -- maybe he doesn't deserve you. I'm not going to let you blame yourself, Kendall, I'm not. Because Zach gave you every reason to doubt him and to resent him and to throw him out, and you did everything to give him the benefit of the doubt, all right? You don't deserve what he did to you, Kendall -- the lies and the secrets. What you deserve is somebody that's going to love and respect you right back.

Kendall: I want to love you.

Krystal: Any edginess you're sensing from me is nothing but concern for Adam and Colby, ok? The sooner you're out of here, then the less explaining I'm going to have to do when he comes home. So vamoose, ok?

Colby: Spill the big secret first.

Tad: Krystal -- tell J.R. I stopped by.

Krystal: I'll tell him as soon as I see him.

[After Tad leaves, Krystal hears a noise in the tunnel.]

Del: You guys need anything?

J.R.: My brother could use another one. Make it strong, he just broke up with his girlfriend.

Del: Oh, yeah? There's a lot of that going around.

[Jamie catches J.R. staring longingly at the bar’s liquor supply.]

Jamie: If you even think about touching booze again, I'll break both your hands.

Josh: All right, this is it. What do you think?

Babe: Fabulous. Hmm. It's better than I dreamed.

[Josh and Babe engage in some deep kissing.]

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

Ryan: This is where a cautious man would say, "Don't play me, Kendall."

Kendall: I'm not playing you.

Josh (to Babe): I want to love you every day and every night for the rest of my life.
