Amanda: What are you doing?
Sean: Just thinking. If a little splash of water required me to wipe down your chest region, what would this ketchup get me? And score. Hottest smile this side of the country, proving what you already suspected -- I am so good.
Amanda: And clearly modest.
Sean: Oh, completely, yeah. Seriously, whatever guy let you go is -- is a total moron.
Jonathan: No -- um -- action going on today at PV High there, son? Huh? No potentially lethal parties that you should be attending? You know -- "come watch Sean Montgomery get trashed and take another boat ashore." That's wicked.
Annie: Mine. Not yours. Not yours. Emma is my daughter, born from this body. I don't know how many ways I need to say it to make you people back off.
Tad: You know exactly what you have to do.
Annie: Yeah. Short of a DNA test, which, for the millionth time, I will never allow.
Dixie: I promised you I would never try to take Emma from you.
Annie: It's out of the question.
Ryan: She said forget it, Dixie.
Tad: You want her to forget her own daughter?
Dixie: Do you realize I could've had my own test run before I brought her back to you? I wanted to. I would have, but instead I opted to do the right thing -- to bring her back to you, her mother, as quickly as I could!
Annie: You almost ran off with her first. How can you even use the words "right thing"?
Ryan: I have to put a stop to this right now. No more badgering.
Dixie: Please? I -- I have been wondering for over four years whether my daughter was safe, whether she was ok!
Annie: Just quit pushing me, ok?
Tad: The only reason she's pushing is because she's desperate. We both are. Nobody knows better than I do the kinds of things people can do when they're desperate.
Annie: Was that a threat?
Ryan: It better not be.
Babe: Oh. Oh, my gosh, look at this view! It's incredible!
Marian: It's beautiful.
Babe: Oh, my gosh. And I know exactly what I want to do with the living room. I'm thinking, like, antique blue walls, maybe a sleek, white sofa, and some brown accents?
Marian: Mm-hmm. Sounds good.
Babe: I love it! Marian, this is so exciting. We can stop looking because this is the perfect place. I -- maybe we should make an offer before someone else snatches it up. And how long do you think it'd be before we can move in?
Marian: Well, wait a minute. Don't you want to see the rest of the house?
Babe: I don't even care. It wouldn't even change my mind. The moment that we drove onto these grounds, I knew.
Marian: Aw. That's great.
Babe: This is my dream home.
Kendall: Dream on.
Zach: I don't believe it. You tore yourself away from the blackjack table just to say hi to little old me.
Myrtle: Now, wipe that smirk off your face. Just because my posse won a few hands of 21, you can't go Cagney on me.
Zach: Hmm -- "a few hands"? Thanks to your old carny tricks, your posse can't lose.
Myrtle: Who said talent was a crime?
Zach: I'll deal with the card sharks later. Right now I need your help with Kendall.
Kendall: Picture it, Babe -- tons of family photos all over the study walls.
Babe: Mm-hmm. I'm already there. Little Adam looks adorable.
Kendall: Oh, not Little Adam -- Little Spike.
Kendall: And me and Zach. Our house, our name on the mailbox, our initials branded on the wrought-iron gates outside. Casa de Slater -- it's a done deal.
Babe: You already bought this place?
Kendall: Yep. Live with it.
J.R.: You're a damn liar.
Josh: You got me there. Saying I never made love to your wife? Oh, that's a big old lie. But not anymore. You know, Hayward was right. The only real way to protect Babe is to get you out of the picture. So, yeah, I may be a liar, but I'm telling you the Godís honest truth right now. I had sex with your wife. And now that you know, Babe can finally be free.
Josh: If you're thinking about luring someone to a construction site, make sure it's not Babe. This is all on me. If you want to come at someone, I'm right here. Don't even think about laying a finger on her.
J.R.: So you're saying that she didn't want any part of it?
Josh: Well, she fought it. Made me fight it, too.
J.R.: Wow. Yeah, that must've killed you, not getting what you wanted.
Josh: Well, I did, eventually. And I have you to thank for that, because I knew if I was patient enough, you'd do something to push her away -- right into my arms. You know, I know you're doing this whole redemption/sinner bit -- whatever it is you want to call it -- but I see right through it. And deep down, so does Babe. She knows it's too good to be true, that, eventually, you're going to snap again. Only this time, you're not going to snap on the woman I love.
J.R.: You know, that's funny, because I just heard her say today that she loves her husband.
Josh: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I heard that, too. I heard her say that she loves you. She also told me that she loves me.
Babe: I love it -- every room -- and I already have the paint colors selected in my head.
Kendall: The whole concept of you living here is in your head, Babe. So, say bye-bye to fantasy land and say hello to hotel me.
Marian: But I haven't heard of any offers being made on this house.
Babe: Good. I want it.
Kendall: Can't have it. Do deal. Mine. So, please, vacate the premises.
Babe: Ignore her.
Kendall: Ignore her.
Babe: Do whatever you have to do, just get me this house -- and I won't take no for an answer.
Kendall: You know, you are an excellent realtor, Marian, and I'm sure over the years you've become extremely resourceful. However, my husband has very colorful associates who are much more connected with their resources than you can possibly imagine. They always get what they want -- or, in this case, what I want.
Zach: Whatever Kendall wants, Kendall gets. Hmm -- you can always tell what Kendall wants because it's written all over her face. She gets that look, this fire in her eyes. If I could bottle that -- sexiest thing I've ever seen. She's -- uh -- what's the word? She's "spunky." Don't tell her I said that, either, because she'd kill me, but it's true. She's -- she's intense and she's focused, and she has this spark -- or, she used to have this spark. Now I -- I look at her and -- and all I see is doubt and caution. She doesn't believe in her husband anymore. How do I get around that?
Myrtle: Well, use your ace in the hole. Kendall loves you, but she's in love with you madly.
Zach: Yeah. She was -- I think she was. But she saw me, Myrtle. She looked into my soul and she saw what I was capable of. It tore her heart to shreds. How do I put it back together?
Kendall: Bye, Marian. Thank you so much for coming. Have a wonderful, wonderful day.
Babe: Marian, please, she --
Marian: Oh -- uh -- listen, I just remembered I have some urgent calls to return, but I'll keep in touch, ok?
Kendall: Ok, ok.
Kendall: All right. You can go, too.
Babe: You so don't love this place.
Kendall: You're wrong. I adore this place. It has "Kendall" written all over it. I can't wait to spend the next 80 years of my life with Zach raising a family here. You know, the only way I might've cut you an inch of slack is if my brother stole you away from J.R.
J.R.: So you've made your -- your big confession. You admitted that you slept with my wife. What now? Come on, Josh, you're the one who's directing this horror show. What do I do now? What, dive into a bottle of scotch, road-rage myself into a tree?
Josh: I don't care what you do. Just don't do it to Babe.
J.R.: Maybe I should give her a call, let her know that I know everything. Let her know that I won't stand in her way if you're really the one that she wants. Oh, come on, Josh, work with me here. I'm at a loss. I mean, what is the healthy response for a husband who has just found out that his wife is a cheating whore? Thick heavy make-up?
Josh: "Cheating whore"? That's what you call Babe? Your wife? Babe is a walking miracle as far as I'm concerned. You don't deserve her.
J.R.: "Walking miracle"? Well, aren't we poetic?
J.R.: What do you know. Is this my walking miracle?
Babe: J.R., I found the perfect house.
J.R.: No way. You found our dream home?
Babe: You have to see it. I'm going to text you the address. Do you think you could come meet me? I know you're going to love it as much as I do.
J.R.: Oh, even if I hate it, I'm going to love it -- because I want whatever you want. Whatever makes you happy, baby. I'll see you in a few minutes. Bye.
Josh: You lay one damn hand --
J.R.: Actually, I was thinking about two. The moment that I see Babe, I'm going to grab ahold of her, and I'm going to pull her body so close to mine, and I'm going to kiss the hell out of her. And I'm going to thank her for being a wife who can I trust completely. What's the matter? You seem like you're a little disappointed. You ticked off that your lie didn't work? Well, you get an a for effort, but I'll tell you something -- you will never, ever know my wife like I know her. I also know that she would never contaminate herself with someone like you.
J.R.: And, by the way, you're fired. Make sure when you leave, you take the trash with you.
Babe: Kendall -- look, J.R. and I haven't exactly been Mr. and Mrs. Bliss since "I do, the sequel." We really need this place. Please, we are desperate for a fresh start, and you know exactly why. Look, it's not like you and Zach, you guys are --
Kendall: What? What? We don't need a fresh start? We're just the epitome of a happy couple?
Babe: What, you guys are still in a bad place?
Kendall: I didn't say that. Don't put words in my mouth.
Myrtle: This wise old bird once told a handsome young cavalier you must give a girl time to breathe. I mean, how long has it been -- two weeks -- since you and Kendall became official again. Now, she's got to have time. I'm -- I'm very good, but even I can't make magic overnight.
Zach: Hmm. Here I thought you had all kinds of tricks up your sleeve, but that's it -- tell me to sit back and wait?
Myrtle: Look, the preacher didn't put the words "for better or worse" into the vows for nothing. You've got to have patience. I mean, that -- that is the best I can do. And now my cohorts -- my friends -- are waiting for me.
Zach: Myrtle, do me a favor. Tell your cohorts -- your friends -- to take it easy at my tables, or I'm going to stop sending casino transportation to pick you guys up.
Myrtle: Oh, you wouldn't do that.
Zach: I wouldn't?
Amanda: Excuse me.
Sean: Where you going?
Jonathan: Where you going?
Amanda: This isn't fun for me, so bye.
Sean: No, no, here -- look, sit, please. Look, you came here to have a nice, quiet lunch. I'm sorry if I almost ruined it for you. It was awesome to see you, Amanda. Hopefully, I'll see you again soon -- hey, when your watchdog is off-duty.
Singer: You see
Amanda: I don't know what the hell that was, but don't ever try it again -- not with me.
Tad: All we want is peace of mind, one way or the other.
Annie: And -- and what happens if the test doesn't co back the way you want it to? You -- you take another and another, and you just keeping going until you get the result you want?
Dixie: No, just one test. That's all we ask.
Tad: That's all we need.
Annie: Forgive me, but I don't have as much faith in "one test proves all" as you do.
Tad: Annie, let's say the test you took last year was a fluke --
Annie: It was.
Tad: Ok, all right. Flukes happen, but not all the time and not every day. All we need is one chance, one opportunity to know that she's not our daughter.
Dixie: Some part of you must want to put it to rest, to know for sure.
Annie: Oh, God, I am so sick of repeating myself. I do know for sure. How much longer do I have to do this? I feel like I'm losing my mind!
Ryan: Don't worry, it's over. It's now time for you two to go.
Tad: Annie, please --
Ryan: Now, Tad! Right now.
Annie: Go ahead, say it. I'm wrong.
Ryan: You're exhausted. You're -- you're strung out. You're definitely --
Annie: On the verge of going postal? Yeah, about this close.
Annie: They're never going to give up, are they?
Ryan: Probably not.
Annie: Why won't they just leave this alone? I thought after the hearing they would drop it.
Ryan: Did you -- did you really?
Annie: No. I thought at least it would keep them away from Emma. See, now, Dixie can quit with the puppy dog eyes and the "woe is us," because I do not feel sorry for them.
Ryan: Are you trying to convince me right now or yourself?
Annie: I won't ok this test, Ryan. It's not happening ever. Oh, hi. Hey, you. I bet you were taking a nap. Huh? Sorry. Did you hear us yelling? I wasn't yelling, I was just excited. Want to know why? Want to know why I was excited? Because Thanksgiving is around the corner, and what comes after Thanksgiving?
Emma: Santa Claus!
Annie: Santa Claus!
Ryan: Oh, you know him, too? That's amazing! Wow. You know, he happens to be one of my favorite people in the whole world.
Annie: You know, Santa Claus likes little boys and little girls that take naps. Did you want to go upstairs and take a nap and I'll read you a book, or do you want to stay down here and play?
Emma: I want to play.
Emma: Of course, you do. Of course, you do.
Tad: Would you like me to make you something to eat?
Dixie: No, I'm good.
Tad: Probably just as well.
Dixie: I had a million emotions running through me when I left here this morning. I didn't know what was going to happen, but I did believe heday that I was going to be with Kate.
Tad: Dixie, that's what David Hayward wanted you to believe. You shouldn't have trusted him.
Dixie: I never said David was involved.
Tad: I know he was involved. He lives for one thing -- to destroy other people's lives. He knows how badly you want to be with Kate --
Dixie: He knows how much --
Tad: So he used it against you.
Dixie: He knows how much I miss her, and how much having her back would mean to me.
Tad: Listen to me. There is not one shred of decency or nobility left in that man. He doesn't want you to be happy. He wants you to suffer every day for the rest of your life because you turned him away. Because you told him you don't want him, he doesn't want you to have anything. You have to cut him off completely.
Dixie: How can Annie just expect us to let this go? How can we tell ourselves that Emma isn't ours without proof? If we go back to Madden's files, if we look through every single picture, we track down every single girl, is that really going to bring us any nearer to our daughter?
Ryan: You must have superpowers -- you can see straight through my cards. That's exactly what I had.
Ryan: You're very good at this.
Bianca: Most people would rather distrust the color of the sky than the person that they love most in the world.
Josh: Babe loves me. He's too smug to see it.
Bianca: And I don't doubt it at all. But she also loves her husband -- a lot.
Josh: Yeah, they have a son.
Bianca: From what I hear, J.R. signed over custody of Little Adam to Babe months ago. There's nothing forcing her to stay with him. She's there because she wants to be. And I -- I know that you don't want to hear it, but you -- you have to face it. J.R. may be a jerk. He may be infuriating and close-minded, but he has a pretty darn compelling reason to be smug.
Babe: How out you take that tape measure and see how many feet it is back to your car?
Kendall: Isn't there a pink-and-turquoise double-wide calling your name somewhere on the outskirts of town?
Babe: Oh. Good, you're here. Oh! J.R.? What's wrong?
J.R.: Josh is history. I told him to start looking for job number 302.
Babe: Well, I can't say that I'm sorry. You know I didn't think it was a good idea -- you two working together?
J.R.: You got your wish.
Babe: But what brought it on?
Josh: J.R. is so cocky right now, but when he realizes I wasn't BSing him about me and Babe hooking up --
Bianca: He may also realize that he loves her enough to try to make it work.
J.R.: You called it, Babe. It's a game of chicken between Josh and me -- who would blink first? Well, it turns out I did. Seeing his ugly mug in my office is just too much to stomach.
Babe: So that's it? It just hit you out of nowhere, out of the blue -- "this isn't a good idea"? What happened to "don't worry, Babe, the bad stuff's in the past, Babe"? Something must've happened to change your mind.
Josh: So what changed your mind about J.R.? I thought you couldn't stand the guy.
Bianca: I can't stand him.
Josh: Well, you're defending him.
Bianca: No, I'm not. I'm being realistic about Babeís feelings for him. I just -- I don't see her leaving him anytime soon.
Josh: Well, she has to. He's going to hurt her. I know it, her -- her father knows it. I'd expect you to think the same thing.
Bianca: I don't trust J.R.ís sudden reformation, but I'm not married to him. I'm not in love with him. Babe seems to think that he's changed, and who can argue with that? I mean, there is nothing reasonable or rational about love. She has already forgiven him for things that no one should or could. And as much as you may hate to admit it, there's a chance he might return the favor.
Josh: There's no way he stays with her when he finds out I was telling the truth.
Bianca: Marriages don't automatically break up because of an affair.
J.R.: Josh doesn't deserve a handout from me. He's out to annihilate our marriage. Look, I know that you say that this guy is your friend, but he cannot be trusted, Babe.
Babe: Ok. But something's happened between the time I left the office and the time you let Josh go. What?
Kendall: Who let him in?
J.R.: What's she doing here?
Kendall: You and your wife are trespassing on my property.
J.R.: Your property?
Kendall: Shall I hold up flash cards, genius? My house, as in mine and Zach's, not yours. Oh, no, don't look so sad. I'm sure you'll find something trashy enough to excite your wife here. Or maybe you can build your own monstrosity. You definitely know your way around construction materials, J.R.
Josh: J.R. almost killed Babe for wanting him to stop drinking.
Bianca: I heard that there's a whole lot more to it than that.
Josh: Do you really think he'd look the other way after he finds out that we slept together? Are you for real?
Bianca: I get what J.R. is going through right now, what -- what he could go through if he lets himself realize the truth. I haven't told anybody this yet, but one of the reasons that I left Paris to come to Pine Valley is that I found out that Maggie has been cheating on me.
Bianca: Yeah, major "ouch." Heart-splayed-out-on-the-floor ouch. I'm hurt and I'm lost and I'm really, really angry. But if she walked through that door right now, I would take her back.
J.R.: You know, you'd be unbelievably stupid to go up against me on this one.
Kendall: You think you scare me? We'll see who ends up in this house.
J.R.: Oh, yes. Yes, we will. And weren't you just leaving?
Kendall: Yeah, actually, I was. Well, don't stay too long. We don't want to have to fumigate before we move in.
J.R.: Ha-ha-ha. Ooh. Now, don't you want to show me around our new house?
Annie: All of your finger tracings become his feathers. Look. Ready? See? And, look, you do this little thing for his -- for his eyes. It's a turkey. Uh -- sweetheart, you know that if -- if Mommy ever wants to bring you on a -- on a plane or a train or a bus, I'll come by myself. You know that, right? Yeah. Mommy would never -- never send somebody else to -- to bring you to me or to, you know, take you on a trip without Mommy. You know that, right?
Annie: Yeah. So if anybody ever says that -- that Mommy sent them, they're not telling the truth, ok?
Dixie: Tad, I was going to call you the minute Emma and I touched down somewhere. You have to believe that. Please -- please believe me. I wasn't going to keep you from your little girl.
Tad: I believe you.
Dixie: Greg Madden kept telling me that I would be destroying a family if I insisted on going after Kate. I guess I never let that really sink in. But today I realized that after spending time with Emma, that he was right. That little girl doesn't look at me and see what I see. She doesn't know that I held her in my body or that I gave birth to her, or that I've been looking for her all these years. All she knows is her mommy is Annie, and she loves her very much.
Tad: Dixie, you don't know for sure that that's Kate.
Dixie: You know, just because I made a promise to Annie not to go after Kate doesn't mean that you have to go along with it. You have rights to Kate.
Dixie: You're under no obligation to sign those rights away!
Tad: Stop! Just stop. I can't even begin to think about something like that unless I'm absolutely sure that Emma is my daughter, and I'm never going to know without a DNA test. So I may never have the answer.
Annie: I know how important that DNA test is for Tad and Dixie. And, honestly, I feel like they're putting me up with Greg Madden for refusing it. But I don't have a choice. It's out of the question.
Annie: I'm afraid. The test I had done in New York -- I never would've thought in a million years it would say that she and I don't share DNA. And what if I allow Tad and Dixie to do a test, and it says that they do share her DNA, and even if that test is a mistake, how will I prevent them from taking my daughter?
Ryan: Well, you don't have to sign off on a test. I mean, the judge did rule in your favor. You don't owe Tad and Dixie anything.
Annie: Yeah, but Dixie had this look in her eyes. Honestly, I felt like I was looking in a mirror for a minute. It was -- it was the same look I had when we were on the run from terry. The kind of look you have when you're afraid you'll never see your child again. Oh. Honestly, I wish I never had to deal with Tad and Dixie again. I wish I could just -- just shut them out of my mind. But that look on Dixie's face -- it just -- it's stuck in my mind, and I don't -- please tell me what to do.
Ryan: Not my decision to make. Trust your instincts, Annie, I do. I know you're going to make the right decision.
Dixie: At least I got to spend some time with her after she was born. I got to tell her I love her. I wish with everything I have inside of me, Tad, that you had that chance, too. I am so sorry that you never got to hold her. I would give anything to give you that time back. I know I can't, but --
Dixie: Kate wore this -- after she was born in the hospital -- on her tiny, perfect head. I want you to have it.
Amanda: I am not Lily. I can't count in primes, and I can't memorize the dictionary. I don't take much seriously, let alone literally, but there is one thing that I know. Lily owns a huge piece of your heart that I can never touch. And that's ok, I accept that. But then you need to accept the fact that I don't need protection like Lily, either. I've been taking care of myself for years, Jonathan, doing a decent job of it. And I'm not in the market for a bodyguard.
Singer: Tell me how
Amanda: I want to find love, and I thought I found it, but it didn't work out.
Singer: In life
Jonathan: So -- so, what, you -- you go and hook up with some boy -- and I emphasize "boy" -- like Sean Montgomery?
Amanda: No. No.
Jonathan: I don't --
Amanda: We did not hook up. Ok, we were talking and having a good time until you swooped down on me like a piece of unclaimed meat. Never again. You want to be my friend and support me, then be my friend and back off.
Kendall: Ok, how much are we worth? Cash investments, don't leave anything out.
Babe: And that huge bay window in the nursery -- how great was that?
J.R.: It's pretty great.
Babe: And didn't you just walk into those empty rooms and think babies, or was it me? Seriously, we could have our own little dormitory up there -- all those beautiful, sunny rooms filled with our future sons and daughters?
J.R.: That would be the best.
Kendall: And everywhere you look, there is these beautiful, beautiful trees, and this lush, green grass -- it's so pretty. And I even know where we're going to put the swimming pool. I mean, you are going to teach Spike to swim, right? And there's a lake. There's this beautiful, beautiful lake and a gorgeous willow tree -- it's the perfect place for an ice skating rink. If you remember, I said that you can teach Spike to play hockey, as long as it's injury-free and civilized. So -- ok, I'm going to start counting. Zach, this house is beautiful. It's -- it's perfect. Wait until you see it.
Zach: I like it already.
Tad: By now, she's probably old enough to enjoy sledding in the winter.
Dixie: Huh. Do you think she likes trucks or dolls better?
Tad: No. I think she's a -- a complete girlie-girl.
Dixie: Yeah, I think so, too.
[Knock on door]
Annie: I've changed my mind. Let's take the test -- now.
Kendall: You know, remind me to carry a camera so I can take a picture of J.R.ís face when we tell him he's been outbid.
Kendall: We are going to get this place, aren't we?
Zach: I could sell a kidney on the black market.
Kendall: Well, hopefully, it won't come to that.
Zach: Welcome back.
Bianca: Maggie had never been with a woman before me, so I guess she needs to explore, see what else is out there. She swears that she still loves me. She just doesn't think that she can be committed to one person right now.
Josh: And you can't imagine being with anyone else?
Bianca: No. I have commitment ceremonies on the brain, like, 24/7. Maggie and I couldn't be further apart in terms of what we want and what we feel.
Josh: So what happens now?
Bianca: Now I -- I give her space. I hope that she gets it out of her system. I hope that she really misses me and Miranda and that she wants us to come home.
Josh: And if she does come back, all is forgiven, just like that?
Bianca: If she decides that loving me is her first priority, that she can be faithful, that she wants to be faithful, then, yeah. All is forgiven, just like that.
Josh: Wow. You're a much bigger person than I am, a thousand times bigger than J.R. There's no way in hell that he'd be this understanding about Babe having an affair. And when he does realize that I was telling the truth --
J.R.: Yeah, you're right. That -- uh -- master bathroom was enormous.
Babe: Are you ok? You seem distracted.
J.R.: Yeah, I'm just thinking about the house.
Babe: You don't like it?
J.R.: I love it. I love it.
Babe: Something is bugging you, though. Is it work? Is it Josh?
J.R.: No, it's nothing to worry about.
Babe: No. You promised me that you'd never keep anything from me, remember? And I'm holding you to it. So, tell me, J.R. What's on your mind? I deserve to know.
J.R.: Josh told me you two were having an affair.
>> On the next "All My Children."
Zach: I came for a party.
Josh: Yeah, to celebrate getting away with murder.
Bianca: Kendall is not defending that.
Kendall: Don't talk for me.
Erica: If you can't behave, just go home.
Donny: Osmond family reunions are nothing like this.
J.R.: I still haven't asked you flat out about this affair -- should I ask?
