Jamie: Youíre lying, Dad. I have proof. And if you want to win back even a shred of the respect that I have for you, you will admit that your testimony is false. Dixie is innocent.

Judge: Donít do this, James.

Jamie: You have to be kidding me. Youíre not even going to try to make this right? Well, then I have no choice.

Colin: Objection, Your Honor. This is ludicrous!

Livia: Your Honor, if James Martin has evidence that his fatherís testimony is fabricated, I believe in the interest of justice, this court should hear that evidence.

Judge: Order!

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Bailiff Evans is going to take you back to the jury assembly room until I can sort this out with the attorneys. Counsel, approach the bench.

Livia: Your Honor, in the interest of fairness, I think that we need to take a 20-minute recess, so that we can evaluate --

Colin: I want a mistrial, Your Honor. This is insanity!

Judge: There are no grounds for a mistrial, Colin, not yet.

Livia. Thank you.

Judge: Your request for a recess is granted.

Livia: Thank you, Your Honor.

Judge: In light of these new developments, court is going to take a short recess.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Evans: All rise.

[Gallery murmurs]

Tad: Jamie? Jamie?

Brooke: What is this about?

Tad: I don't know. Look, I --

Joe: Tad, what proof --

Tad: I can't do this right now, Pop. Just let me go, ok?

Erica: Can you imagine what this is doing to him?

Jeff: Just when he thought he was getting some closure.

Erica: Do you think we should go after him?

Adam: Ah, there you are. Uh -- Colbyís hearing is coming apace. I've talked to the attorneys. I think we should develop a family strategy to show solidarity to the judge in case Colbyís still facing charges for that Independence Day carjack --

Krystal: Yeah.

Adam: Car-chasing thing with the -- anyway, and we also have to do something to lessen the blow for this yachtjacking disaster. Colby!

Krystal: Honey, honey, she's not here.

Adam: What do you mean, she's not here? I -- I grounded her for life.

Krystal: Well, you should have, and you probably meant to, but what you actually did was kiss her and hug her and tell her that you would protect her for the rest of her life.

Adam: Oh. Oh. Yeah, I was -- I was just so happy to see her safe.

Krystal: I know, I know, honey. Well, she'll be home soon, and you can ground her then, ok?

Adam: Yeah, but she shouldn't be --

Krystal: In the meantime, I have something to tell you.

Adam: No, she shouldn't be out at all. I love that little girl to pieces, but Colby is a full-blooded Chandler. She's probably out there raking in more charges even as we speak. Colby!

Krystal: Adam, honey --

Adam: Sydney!

Krystal: You know, I'm due at the Miranda Center, so if I could just have a little bit of your time, I'd really appreciate it, ok?

Adam: Yeah, that's fine, sweetheart. I know, you go right ahead. That's all right. Sydney?

Sydney: You called me?

Krystal: No, no, just five, you know, teenager-free minutes alone with you.

Sydney: You called me?

Adam: Do you know where Colby is?

Sydney: Mm-hmm. But, um --

Adam: No, no "buts." You got to tell me the truth.

Sydney: I'm kind of afraid. You're not going to like it.

Krystal: Oh, Sydney, just spill it.

Sydney: Ok. The whole, awful story.

Sean: Oh, God.

Colby: Cold.

Sean: Hey, hey --

Colby: I'm cold.

Sean: No, no, no, you're dead. Go away!

Colby: I'm cold.

Sean: Colby, I mean it! Stay back!

Colby: Cold! So cold! God, I'm cold!

Sean: Boo!

[Colby screams]

[Sean laughs]

Jonathan: Excuse me. That -- I'm sorry. I wanted to just leave Ryan a note real fast.

Annie: Go for it. Hey, I know I've already thanked you, but --

Jonathan: But you're going to thank me again.

Annie: Oh.

Jonathan: Ok. If you want to thank me, I want you to come down to ConFusion as my guest and let me buy you a drink, let me put some food in your belly, tell me what your favorite song is so I can -- I can have the DJ play it.

Annie: Uh, Motley Crue, "Shout at the Devil."

Jonathan: Wow. Ok. We, we're going to have to go down to Beaumont Street for that one.

[Annie laughs]

Jonathan: Oh -- no. There's this really cool place next to the hotel I'm staying.

Annie: You're staying in a hotel?

Jonathan: Hey, it's not a big deal.

Annie: No, it's a huge deal. If Emma hadn't taken over your room at Erinís, you'd be staying there. Look, I have a job now. I can afford a place of my own.

Jonathan: Emma needs consistency. That's why I'm finding a place. I've already looked at two studios downtown.

Annie: Do you really want to be alone?

Jeff: Let's give him a minute.

Erica: All right.

Kendall: Look at Tad. He doesn't seem too rattled for a guy who was just accused of lying under oath, does he?

Ryan: No, but --

Kendall: Ryan, Jamie was so angry. He publicly accused his father in a court of law. I mean, would he have done that without evidence? Ryan, what if Tad really is lying?

Di: Well, at least this means that our sister's finally off the hook.

Del: I wouldn't jump the gun. This might not work out the way we think it will.

Di: It will. It has to, and when it does, Tad can go straight to hell.

Colin: I don't know what your son is trying to pull here, Martin, but if he's messed up my case, I will haul him into court so --

Tad: You're not going to do a damn thing -- nothing. You're finished threatening my kids, Mr. Summerhill, because in case you didn't notice, that boy's family is being torn to ribbons today, because you had to have your eyewitness testimony. Well, you got it. So from now on, from here on out, you got anything to say to me, it damn well better be "thank you." Otherwise, you just shut the hell up.

J.R.: How many chances have we given you to come clean? We told you that we would handle Derek, that we would have your back. You looked us right in the face, and you told us, you swore to us that Mom had a body, that she and Slater buried Greg Madden. No room for doubt. I mean, how could you do it? How could you lie to us? How could you put away Mom?

Tad: Actually, I'm kind of amazed that you didn't come up with this first.

J.R.: What the hell are you talking about?

Tad: It's called reasonable doubt. Jamie did everything he did to put doubt in the minds of the jury, to get them to disregard my testimony. Might have worked.

J.R.: So Jamieís the liar now?

Tad: No. I'm proud of him. It was a good move on his part.

J.R.: I'm giving you one last chance, because if there's the slightest possibility that we'll ever be family again, you will come clean right now.

Tad: I'm sorry, J.R. But I'm standing by every word I said.

Zach: Ahem.

Dixie: I really hate this. Jamie's so upset with his father, and J.R. is --

[Dixie sighs]

Dixie: Angry. I --

Zach: Don't question anything. Just hang in there.

Dixie: I'm trying to.

Jeff: Thirsty?

Erica: I can't even imagine what you're going through.

Jeff: If our being here makes you uncomfortable, son, it's just that we want to show --

Josh: Did I ask you to be here? Did I ask for the water, did I ask for your sympathy? No. I didn't ask for any of it. I didn't ask to be born. I didn't ask to be terminated, salvaged, or raised by a madman, either, but that's just the way it played out. But at least I'm alive, right? And like it or not, I owe Greg Madden for that. So here I am, here to do my part, see this thing through to the end, make sure his killers go away for what they did. And now this.

Jeff: Josh --

[Jeff sighs]

Jeff: Jamie is desperate. He's just trying to save his family.

Josh: Oh, so what are you saying? He's a liar, I should believe your brother or your ex-sister-in-law? Who?

Jeff: Well, after hearing the -- the evidence, it just seems to be that --

Josh: I mean, I just want to know who did it. Can you just give me a name? I mean, there's enough people in there. I mean, they all had motive, they all had opportunity. Hey -- even you did. I'm just -- I'm tired of guessing. I just -- I just want an answer.

Erica: And I wish I had one.

Josh: I keep seeing that hole he was buried in, you know? It's like I'm right there again. I can -- I can see it, I can smell it, I can taste it, and until someone pays for digging it, I don't think I'll ever be able to get it out of my mind.

[Coming face-to-face, Josh and Babe stare at each other.]

Kendall: I can't stand this, Ryan. I've got to -- I have to go talk to Jamie right now and make him tell me what he knows.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa --

Kendall: And I don't care if he has a problem with me or not.

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa. He may not know anything, Kendall. I mean, come on. Last night, he was grasping at straws. Do you really think he came up with something that explosive between then and now, do you? And on top of that, Kendall, there's something else you're forgetting.

Kendall: Hmm. Right. Madden's recording.

Ryan: The recording that Zach has admitted was his.

Kendall: Yeah, I know, and Jamie doesn't know anything about it.

Ryan: And Jamie also doesn't know that the alibi is a crock, but we do.

Kendall: Ok. No, you're right -- well, at least one of us has a straight head.

Ryan: Look, I know it's not what you want to hear, and I know you want to believe that Tadís lying through his teeth and that Zachís innocent.

Kendall: Well, I can't even go there, Ryan. It'll only hurt worse when Zach gets convicted and taken away.

Ryan: Hold on, hold on. I'm not -- I'm not saying that you shouldn't have hope. I mean, believe me, I'm going to be here no matter how this plays out. I'm just saying don't jump the gun.

Kendall: But if I took Tadís word, and he's lying, and I didn't believe Zach, and he's telling the truth Ė

[Kendall turns toward Zach but stops short when she sees Dixie comforting him.]

Babe: I wasn't sure that you'd still be here.

Josh: Well, I thought about bailing, but I -- I couldnít. I had to find out who did it, who killed him. Besides, I canceled all those pressing social engagements, so I figured I might as well stay.

Babe: Well, I honestly don't know who to believe. I don't see Tad or Jamie lying.

Josh: Well, at this point, I just want someone, anyone to pay for killing Greg, so I can just put this whole mess behind me and just start some sort of life again.

Babe: Well, I hope you don't erase everything about the old you.

Josh: Well, there's a few banner moments I'll never let myself forget. I'm glad you're here.

Babe: I wouldn't be anywhere else.

David: Life is a trip, isn't it?

[David chuckles]

David: First, you're dead, then you're not, then you're a killer, now maybe not. Well, one thing's for certain -- you're no longer the sweet, innocent Dixie Cooney we all knew and loved.

Dixie: Well, it's just too bad you're still the same selfish, manipulative man you were when I left town. I guess some things never change.

David: Well, you see, you're wrong, Dixie, because I have changed. You changed me when you blew me off for Zach. All the plans I had for us -- wiped out. I had to find some way to let it go, move on.

Dixie: Is this how you move on? Skulking and gloating on the sidelines while I'm being convicted of murder? Does this satisfy your need for revenge?

[David laughs]

David: You know, you would think that it would, wouldn't you? But I might come up with something else.

Erin: Well, Miss Emma here is just a doll, and I think just maybe Gianna's down for the count, so it should be kind of a breeze.

Krystal: Oh. Well, lucky for them, I do know a couple of things about little girls, so we are going to have a great time.

Erin: Aw, cool.

[Krystal giggles]

Erin: Thank you very much.

Krystal: Ok.

Erin: Bye, Emma, I'll see you later. Bye!

Krystal: Bye-bye. See you. Hey. Hey, Emma. So tell me -- do you know how to play patty cake?

[Krystal gasps]

Krystal: You do? Oh, boy. This could be the best thing that's happened to me in this whole messed-up day. Ok. Here we go. Patty cake? Show me. Show me. Come on.

Annie: I'm such a wuss about being alone. Emma sleeps with me every night. After being on constant alert for so many months, I still --

Jonathan: It's understandable, Annie. You know, it's -- it's still very weird for me not to have Lily on the other side of that bed.

Annie: Ok, then -- problem solved. You move back into your old room, Emma bunks with me. Yes, yes. Erin will be thrilled to --

Jonathan: No, no, no, no, no --

Annie: Have her brother back. It'll just be one big, loud, unlonely party pad -- "Three's Company" with a twist.

Jonathan: You're lucky I can use the comedy.

[Annie chuckles]

Annie: Ok.

Colby: Are you kidding me? First you don't care that I'm dead, now you don't even care that I'm alive? You play jokes on me, you scare the crud out of me. Sean, I totally hate your guts right now.

Sean: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Wait, before you take off ticked, where -- where were you? What happened to you?

Colby: As if you care. I heard you tell Sydney just to get over me being dead, so don't even try to play that.

Sean: What -- what'd you do? Fake your death so you could spy on people? See how many people would show up to your funeral?

Colby: You obviously wouldn't have showed up.

Sean: Look -- we had a pretty awesome time together before that boat crashed. Ok, I would've been front row center.

Colby: Right. You were so drunk, I bet you don't even remember what happened.

Sean: Not only do I remember it, I think about it every day. Look, I'm really glad you're alive, Colby.

Adam: Get your hands off my daughter!

Judge: I apologize for the earlier interruption, and I thank you all for your patience. Now, as we move forward, I remind you to focus only on the sworn testimony in this case. The earlier accusations from James Martin toward his father have been stricken from the record and should not have any bearing on the outcome of this trial. Is that understood? Now, Mr. Summerhill, I understand that Tad Martin has been removed to the witness waiting room? Is that correct?

Colin: Yes, Your Honor.

Judge: Ms. Cudahy, you may proceed.

Livia: Thank you, Your Honor. In light of the recent developments, the defense would like to call a rebuttal witness to Tad Martinís testimony, Mr. Daniel Kagan.

Colin: Objection.

Judge: Overruled. I want to hear from your witness.

Livia: Thank you, Your Honor. Would you please state your name for the record, sir?

Daniel: Daniel Kagan.

Livia: And, Mr. Kagan, what is your profession?

Daniel: I spent 15 years in the military, but for the past five years, I've been head of security at Pine Valley Airport.

Livia: And as the head of security at the airport, are you privy to security breaches?

Daniel: That's correct.

Livia: Now, where were you or were you on duty the night of June 5, 2006?

Daniel: No, ma'am, not that night. I worked earlier in the afternoon, but my shift ended at 1700 hours. I'm sorry -- 5:00 p.m.

Livia: Thank you. And when did your next shift begin?

Daniel: The following morning at 8:00 a.m.

Livia: Now, Mr. Kagan, are you aware that a Thaddeus Martin is a material witness in this murder case?

Daniel: Yes, but I only learned about Mr. Martin's involvement this morning.

Livia: Well, why is that?

Daniel: I've been out of town training security teams for over a month.

Livia: And how did you learn about Tad Martinís involvement in this case?

Daniel: His son James told me.

Livia: What exactly did James Martin tell you about his father's involvement in this case?

Daniel: He said Mr. Tad Martin was an eyewitness, that he claims he saw the defendants load the body in the trunk of a car somewhere between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. on June 5.

Livia: And did that surprise you?

Daniel: Yes, ma'am.

Livia: Well, why is that?

Daniel: Because Tad Martin was in a locked room at the airport the entire night of June 5. If he says he saw anything during those hours, he lied.

Colin: Your Honor, please. The defense has rushed to put this man on the stand. We have no proof he is who he says he is, or that he saw Mr. Martin at the airport. He's already admitted he wasn't even working the night in question.

Livia: If Mr. Summerhill would stop interrupting, Mr. Kagan will explain all of that.

Judge: Overruled, Mr. Summerhill. You may proceed.

Livia: Thank you, Your Honor. Now, Mr. Kagan, if you weren't working the night of June 5, how do you know that Tad Martin was in the airport?

Daniel: Because when I came in the next day, I saw him on the security camera. On June 5, Tad Martin sneaked into a private office in the rear of the airport. But what he didn't know is that this particular office was equipped with a time lock.

Livia: What does that mean?

Daniel: The room automatically locks itself every night at 10:00 p.m. If you don't have a key, there's no getting in or out.

Livia: So you're saying that when you came back on duty in the morning, you found Tad Martin in a locked room without a key?

Daniel: That's right. When I saw him in the monitor, I immediately went to question him.

Livia: And what did you find out?

Daniel: He told me he was a private investigator.

Livia: So then you let him go?

Daniel: No, not until I got a copy of his driver's license and his PI license. Then I wrote up a report.

Livia: And about what time was Mr. Martin free to go?

Daniel: About 9:00 a.m., I'd say.

Livia: I have here copies of the driver's license of Tad Martin, as well as his PI license, and the detailed report filed and signed by Daniel Kagan on June 6, 2006.

Colin: Objection, Your Honor. There is still no proven validity to this man's testimony, and these papers could easily be doctored.

Livia: If Mr. Summerhill would like more substantial evidence, I can provide that, as well.

Colby: Daddy, stop! No, Sean didn't do anything wrong. I'm the one who came to see him.

Sean: I think Colby makes a pretty hot ghost.

Adam: You're standing on my last nerve, kid. But you're going to take me very seriously.

Colby: No, no, Daddy, don't shoot him!

Adam: I'm not armed -- not yet. It's a plane ticket -- Barcelona. You're going to reunite with your mommy, Sean.

Sean: Oh. Thanks, but I'm going to have to pass, Mr. Chandler. You see, I'm -- I'm allergic to coach. See, if you want to talk first class, maybe I'll listen.

Adam: This is a big joke to you, isn't it, kid? If I ever catch you with your hand on her again, you're going to be the one who's trying to come back from the grave -- with far less success.

Annie: Hey.

Emma: Mommy.

Annie: Hi!

Krystal: Well, hi, Annie. I didn't hear you come in.

Annie: Oh, that's ok. Sweetie, why don't you go get your lunch box, huh? Mommy's going to take you home.

Krystal: Emma is such a sweet little girl.

Annie: Aw.

Krystal: She reminds me of my little daughter when she was that age.

Annie: Yeah. She's a handful, but I feel like the luckiest woman in the world to have her, so --

Krystal: They are miracles.

Annie: Yeah, without a doubt. Oh. Look at this one. You all set? Did you grab your lunch box for me? Yeah? All right, we're off. Looks like you and this little angel are on your own.

Krystal: Well, I think we can manage just fine.

Annie: Ok.

Krystal: Bye, Emma.

Annie: Bye.

Emma: Bye.

Krystal: Lordy, little bit, what have I done?

[In the witness waiting room, Tad paces and sweats out the wait.]

Livia: Mr. Kagan, can you please tell this court what we are seeing?

Daniel: This is security footage of Mr. Martin in the airport room on the evening of June 5.

Livia: 21:59:57:20. 10:00 p.m. is the time you say the doors lock?

Daniel: Yes, ma'am.

Livia: Your Honor, I would like permission to fast-forward the tape to demonstrate that Mr. Martin was indeed locked in the security room overnight June 5, 2006.

Colin: Your Honor, objection. The state requests a recess. Better yet, a mistrial.

Judge: Overruled, counselor.

Livia: Thank you, Your Honor.

[As the tape fast-forwards, the court watches Tad knocking on the locked door then sitting on the floor, resigned to an all-night wait.]

Livia: Your Honor, the defense would like to recall Tad Martin to the witness stand.

[The gallery murmurs as Tad walks to the witness stand and takes his seat.]

Livia: Mr. Martin, I would like to remind you that you are still under oath.

Tad: I'm aware of that.

Livia: Have you ever seen this man?

Tad: Never.

Livia: Mr. Martin, where were you the night of June 5, 2006?

Colin: Objection. Asked and answered.

Judge: Overruled. Mr. Martin, I assume you're aware the court imposes a severe punishment for perjury?

Tad: Yes, sir.

Judge: And I advise you to think hard before answering Ms. Cudahy's questions.

Livia: Where were you the night of June 5, 2006?

Tad: I don't understand this. I've already testified I was at the airport.

Livia: Where at the airport?

Tad: All over it. I was down at the gates, luggage, baggage claim. I was even at the cargo storage area.

Livia: And how long would you say you were at the airport?

Tad: About an hour, maybe more. I didn't have a watch. I don't know. I don't remember the exact time.

Livia: And is it still your testimony that when you left the airport, you witnessed my clients in the commission of a crime in a remote parking lot?

Tad: Yes.

Livia: And you're absolutely certain that was June 5, 2006?

Tad: 5, 2006, absolutely.

Livia: Your Honor, permission to show the witness the video?

Judge: Granted.

Livia: Mr. Martin, are you familiar with this video footage?

Tad: It doesn't look the least bit familiar.

Livia: So are you saying that that's not you in that videotape?

Tad: That's exactly what I'm saying.

Livia: Well, that is video footage of a locked room in the airport.

Tad: No, no, no --

Livia: The entire night of June 5, 2006.

Tad: No, counselor, you're wrong. That -- that -- that is a very convincing fake.

Livia: Hmm.

Tad: No, it's -- it's good. I mean, it's good work, I'll give you that much. As a matter of fact, I -- I can even understand why my son would fall for it. But it doesn't change the fact that it's phony. You think I would be doing that the same night that the man that stole my daughter disappeared? That never happened.

Livia: Did you mourn the loss of your daughter?

Colin: Objection, irrelevant.

Tad: What the hell kind of question is that?

Judge: Overruled. Answer the question, Mr. Martin.

Tad: Of course, I mourned her.

Livia: So much that you lied to this court today?

Colin: Objection.

Judge: Overruled, counselor.

Tad: No.

Livia: Isn't it true that you never wanted a child?

Colin: Objection! Irrelevant!

Judge: Overruled!

Tad: I --

Judge: Answer the question.

Tad: I am answering the question. I didn't want Dixie to jeopardize her health by having a child. But then again, I was never told she was pregnant until well after the fact. As soon as I found out that she was into her third trimester, and she was healthy, I wanted that baby every bit as much as she did.

Livia: Did you name your daughter?

Colin: Objection, Your Honor. Relevance?

Judge: Overruled, counselor. And I suggest you sit down and stop interrupting.

Tad: Kate. Our daughter's name is Kate.

Livia: Mr. Martin, your son James has called you a liar. An independent, unbiased security officer has said that you have lied to this courtroom today. And this footage supports both of them.

Tad: Is a fake. I'm not the liar here, Livia. You want me to make it easy for you? Ok. Dixie Cooney Martin and her lover, Zach Slater, killed a man. They buried him alive. Now, if you went around this courtroom calling me a liar, you think that's going to help your case, you go right ahead, knock yourself out. But I know what I saw that night, and so do they. My conscience is clear.

Adam: That smart-mouthed, snot-nosed delinquent. I'll make him sorry he ever -- he ever messed with me. A 16-year-old girl? No, I'll make his life a living hell.

Colby: All right, Daddy, jeez.

Adam: And you, young lady, I don't want you out of my sight until after your hearing.

Colby: You don't trust me?

Adam: No, I don't.

Colby: Because I'm a girl, huh?

Adam: No, because you're a Chandler. You think I don't know what goes on in that -- that mind of yours? I raised J.R., and Hayley. Hell, I went through it myself when I was your age. Colby, I don't want to lose you again. All those years we missed, and all that time I thought you were dead in the water -- why don't you indulge your old man and stay at home and spend some time with me?

Colby: I'm so happy to be home. I love you, Dad.

Adam: Oh -- I'm so happy to have you home, darling.

Krystal: Adam? Adam, sugar, could I see you in the parlor for a minute? I -- I have a surprise.

[Krystal shows a confused Adam a cake on which is written ďCongrats Daddy 2B.Ē

Livia: There was a four-year period during which you believed that your wife was dead, correct?

Colin: Again, asked and answered, Your Honor.

Livia: Did you mourn Dixieís death?

Tad: Of course, I mourned her. I was devastated.

Livia: Did you love her, even when you thought she was dead?

Colin: Objection. Irrelevant.

Judge: Overruled.

Tad: Very much.

Livia: Enough to even want her back as your wife?

Tad: Yes.

Livia: So when she returned to Pine Valley, you pursued her in an effort to gain her back?

Tad: No.

Livia: But you told us that you loved her and wanted her back as your wife.

Tad: That was before I knew that she'd done it on purpose, that she had deserted her family and allowed us to run around for four years thinking she was dead.

Livia: And that made you angry?

Colin: Objection. Leading question.

Tad: Nobody is leading me anywhere.

Judge: I'll handle the objections, Mr. Martin. Sustained.

Livia: How did you feel when you found out your daughter, Kate, was still alive?

Tad: How do you think?

Livia: And how did you feel when you found out that she had given your daughter away without your knowledge or consent?

Tad: I've already told you, I mourned the loss of my daughter.

Livia: And what was the reason that Ms. Martin told you for giving away your child?

Tad: She said she thought she was dying.

Livia: But isn't it also true that she said she didn't give Kate to you, because she believed you were incapable of loving her?

Tad: That's true.

Livia: And that videotape footage we saw today is also true?

Tad: The videotape footage is nothing! It's a fake! It's a phony!

Livia: You were locked in a room the entire night --

Tad: Bring me the damn computer, I'll do it myself, ok? You give me five minutes, I'll give you a spicy little video of you and the DA there.

Livia: You were locked in that room --

Tad: No.

Livia: The entire night of June 5 --

Tad: No.

Livia: Weren't you?

Tad: No, I wasnít.

Livia: You lied to this court today, didn't you? Because you wanted to get back at Dixie.

Tad: I didn't lie. I didn't lie to anybody.

Livia: You concocted this entire story, because you were angry with her for leaving you, playing dead, giving away your child, and you invented this story about --

Tad: No!

Livia: Her burying Greg Madden.

Tad: No, I didn't!

Livia: Dixie didn't bury --

Tad: I saw her with the body! How many times --

Livia: You didn't see anyone, because you were locked in a room the entire night!

Tad: No, I was not.

Livia: Dixie didn't bury anyone, did she? She didnít bury kill anyone. She didnít bury a soul.

Tad: How the hell would you know? She buried me! She killed me! That woman's taken everything I've got. Look at the way my son looks at me. My daughter's out there somewhere. She's lost, she's gone. I'm never going to know what it feels like to pick her up. I'm never going to know what it feels like to call her by her name. I'm never going to know what she looks like because of her, because of that selfish bitch sitting right there. She chose to do this to me. It was her choice to go to Europe. It was her choice to give my daughter to a complete stranger, a psychopath. And then instead of coming home to a family that needed you -- instead of being a -- a wife and a mother, you chose to be Zach Slaterís whore. And now a complete stranger is raising my daughter, my flesh and blood, mine. I get to go to bed every single night wondering if she's happy, if she's lonely, if, God forbid, she's being abused. And it doesn't matter, anyway, does it? Because one way or another, I can't do a thing about it. Because let's face it. Greg Maddenís nothing but a useless sack of meat. Greg Madden is gone, along with every hope I'm ever going to have of finding my baby girl. So, counselor, I really don't give a damn about your tape. I don't care what you think. I don't care what they think. I know the truth. You are a murderer. Because you buried me. You killed me. You're nothing but a lying, cheating, sadistic bitch. And so help me God, I'm going to make you pay for it. Right here, right now. You're going to pay.

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

J.R. (to Jamie): You want me to save Tad? He's worthless.

Tad: I told the jury exactly what I had to tell them. There wasn't anything else I could do.

Ryan: The jury's back.

Judge: In the matter of the people vs. Dixie Martin and Zach Slater, how do you find in the first count?
