Tad: We find Hayward, you're leaving.

Jamie: We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Tad: Well, at this rate, we might as well go out in the backyard and start turning over rocks.

Jamie: I got a better idea -- how about we put Hayward under one -- permanently?

Tad: Hey. Not even a test tube. Just when I was thinking we might be able to give the doctor a taste of his own medicine.

Jamie: No, no, no, no, no. There's got to be something. No one gets away this clean.

Tad: Yeah, I know that, James, but where the hell is he?

[Jamie sighs]

Jamie: Well, smart to run. If he'd stayed, he would've been hamburger. And if I see his face again, all I'm going to need is one --

Tad: One what? One what? James? Jamie?

Annie: I need a doctor, please. I need a test.

Julia: Are you hurt, sick? Was there an accident?

Annie: Now, I need a --

Ryan: It's a special situation. It's very important.

Annie: I need a test now -- not in an hour, not tomorrow.

Julia: If you will just tell me what you need --

Annie: I need a test, another stupid test. Why won't you help me?

Ryan: Ok, take -- you're going to get your test. I promise you'll get your -- you have to help us.

Erin: Thank God you're here.

Jonathan: What's wrong with you?

Erin: Oh, my God. It's Annie, and Emma.

Annie: It's crazy. My daughter's not my daughter, but she is my daughter.

Ryan: And she needs another DNA test to prove that.

Jeff: Ok, it's going to be all right. We'll -- we'll sort this out.

Annie: It's not all right, it's not.

Ryan: What do you need, Annie? What -- what do you need?

Jeff: All right, let's get her into an exam room and check her out, all right?

[Annie pants]

Julia: Ok, this one is free. Come on.

Ryan: All right. Thanks.

Annie: I'm ok, I just -- I need the test.

Ryan: Ok, all right. I'll take -- I'll take care of it.


Ryan: Basically, there's some question whether Annie is her daughter's biological mother.

Jeff: Well, Tad kept me posted -- the DNA test was negative. She's not Tad and Dixie’s daughter. That should put you in the clear, right?

Ryan: Yeah, you'd think so, but somehow, Tad produced another DNA test that proves otherwise, proves that Annie and Emma aren't a match. Now the state has taken Emma away.

Jeff: Well, I doubt very much that the DNA test was defective.

Ryan: Have you ever heard of chimeras?

Tad: Until we know what we're dealing with, we work together. That means I call, you answer -- do you understand?

Jamie: Where's the gratitude? Major find?

Tad: No. Actually, you were right the first time -- if the place is this clean, that is a message. Look, maybe it's booby-trapped. Let me do it. Move over.

Jamie: I'm not moving.

Tad: Just -- Jamie, move --

Jamie: I'm not moving.

Tad: Would you please –

[Having found David’s laptop, Jamie turns it on expectantly and sees the words “Welcome to my Hell” on the screen.]

Kendall: Hubby in ICU, lover on the outs, collateral damage everywhere you look, but your desk will be spit-spot. It's good to know you have your priorities straight. Don't mind Babe -- she just stopped by to irritate me.

Babe: Actually, I want to make up for what I've done. And this is a start.

Kendall: You could've just phoned in the "I'm sorry." We're busy.

Babe: I'm out. As of tonight, I'm out of your lives for good. I'm signing my shares of Fusion over to you.

Kendall: What's the catch?

Babe: There is none.

Kendall: Uh, the punch line, the joke, the bud-dump-bump? Come on. Come on, lay it on me now, because I have things to do.

Bianca: Kendall, she's serious.

Babe: Every word.

Bianca: Babe, you don't have to do this, not for me. Keep your shares.

Kendall: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Stop, stop. Babe made an offer. She wants out, so who are we to stop her?

Bianca: Getting rid of your shares won't solve anything.

Kendall: Come on! Yes, actually, it will. Let's -- let's get this party started. What are we waiting for? Let's -- here. Let's sign up the papers. Let's -- you know what? Use this. Come on, go ahead. We'll -- we'll formalize it later. Please, please -- anything to get you out of Fusion. If we're lucky, maybe you'll just keep going down the elevator, out of the building, out of town, and out of our lives. No pressure, but before the ink's dry would be great.

Bianca: What happened with J.R.? I know what he's like when he feels cornered, when he's in pain. I wish that I had handled things differently. If -- if only I hadn't gotten angry, if only I had just let him alone.

Kendall: No, no. Stop, uh-uh -- big time-out on that one. There is no way in hell that you are responsible for what J.R. did. You don't get to take responsibility for Babe being easy and J.R. being a drunk.

Bianca: See? Babe? We all make mistakes. We all make bad choices. But what happened to J.R. wasn’t my fault and it wasn't yours. Nobody should have to pay for somebody else's sins.

[Jamie and Tad watch David’s image on his laptop.]

David: If you've found this, you already know the truth -- Emma is not Kate. You were so full of hope, so desperate. You'd believe anything, anyone, including me.

[David sighs]

David: Well, you've dried your tears, and now you're here. Payback? What do you want to do, Tad? Blame me? Take me out, beat me up? What you really need to do is take a cold, hard look at yourself in the mirror. Blame yourself. Blame your incompetent father, your all-knowing family. I lost my precious daughter Leora, because of your interfering Martins. Lost all hope, all sense of my future. I go to sleep and wake up every single morning in the same place -- hell. Well, now it's your turn. You may have noticed -- I'm gone. So I freely give this hell to you. What is that famous "Dante’s Inferno" quote -- "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." Well, my great hope is that you never find your way out.

Erin: You know, just because of some stupid DNA test that Tad and Dixie Martin got their hands on, the DFS waltzed in there, and they just took Emma. They took her, they took her. They brought a cop like Annie’s, like, some kind of criminal, you know? And, God, Jonathan, Emma was just a mess. She was -- she was scared, and she was crying. It was awful.

Jonathan: Annie has a birth certificate.

Erin: I know she does, but she's not a biological match.

Jonathan: Well --

Erin: And according to this social worker, that means that Annie could have, like, kidnapped Emma or God knows what, you know? And it really doesn't help that Annie bailed on the -- the whole custody order and sneaked Emma out of New York.

[Erin sighs]

Erin: Gee, I --

Jonathan: Ok. Ok. Um -- where's Emma right now?

Erin: Oh, she's in an emergency foster home.

Jonathan: Do you have the address?

Erin: No, I don't.

Jonathan: No?

Erin: No.

Jonathan: Can you get it? Can you use the Miranda Center and track her down? I need that address.

Erin: Wait, you cannot -- you can't just, like, go in and, like, walk in -- oh. You -- my God, you want to kidnap Emma for Annie.

Annie: We don't he time to explain everything here.

Jeff: Secondary DNA, the merging of fraternal twins during the zygote phase. I'm familiar with some of the more well-known cases.

Annie: I'm not a case -- I'm a mother. I want my daughter back.

Ryan: No, wait. We think that Annie is a chimera.

Annie: I gave birth to Emma. She is my child, but a DNA test says otherwise. I have spent so long protecting Emma, and I won't lose her, because of a condition I can't even help.

Jeff: All right. Look, we'll get Emma back into her own bed. Let's search for -- for some DNA, all right?

Julia: I'm available to help.

Jeff: Sure.

Annie: Thank you.

Ryan: Ok.

Annie: Wait -- Ryan? Is it ok if he stays?

Jeff: Sure.

Ryan: I have a little searching of my own to do, but I'll be right back here by the time you're done, ok? Ok.

Jack: Ryan, there you are. Ok, what's the big emergency? Why am I here? The DNA test results are in. The McDermott child is not Tad and Dixie’s, so end of story.

Ryan: Not even close, Jack. At that hearing, you helped throw a woman's life into the shredder, and now we're going to help her get her daughter back. Because of the DNA test that your client provided, Annie has got to fight for Emma all over again, Jack, and she needs help, and Livia is out of town on a case. You know what went down, you know all the players.

Jack: I can certainly recommend someone very good for you.

Ryan: No, I don't have time for that. I don't have time to bring another lawyer up to speed here. Emma has got to be back home tonight, and you helped make this mess. You got to help clean it up, Jack.

Jack: Ryan, have you considered that Family Services just might be right? The DNA does not match -- that's a fact.

Ryan: There's a scientific reason, Jack.

Jack: Ok. Emma is not Tad and Dixie’s child, right? That means there might be another set of parents out there looking just as long and just as hard for the child that Annie McDermott is raising.

Ryan: What is this? What is this -- you think every time I open my mouth, it's got to be a lie? What is this? When are you going to move the hell on and just hear what I'm saying?

Annie: Family Services -- how can they rip a crying child from her mother's arms and say they're doing it in the child -- for the child's best interest? Emma didn't want to go. She was -- she was bawling, she was begging. I promised her I would always protect her, find her, catch her when she falls, and there was nothing I could do. Don't they -- don't they know what this is doing to Emma? How can they not care?

Jeff: Annie, as bad as it is, Emma’s being taken care of. Now, let us take care of you. We're going to do everything we can to make this right.

Ryan: Is this how it's going to be from now on? I mean, you look at me, and you see everything that Braden did, Jonathan’s sickness, all of my mistakes, because I'm standing here, and I'm telling you that I watched a child get ripped from her mother's arms, crying for her mommy, begging to stay, and honestly it didn't have to happen, and you're part of the reason why it did.

Jack: Well, I'll tell you something, Ryan -- Tad and Dixie have never held their child, not tonight, last night, or any other night. And if that little girl was theirs, by God I was going to fight to get her back. If not, I at least was going to get some answers.

Ryan: I guess I'm just asking you to use all of that fight to help get Emma away from whatever foster home that she's in.

Jack: I'll file the request for you --

Ryan: Tonight, Jack, tonight.

Jack: Oh.

Ryan: I need Emma back in Annie’s arms tonight. They've been through enough.

Jack: All right, Ryan. I'll do whatever I can. I'll get back to you. You on your cell?

Ryan: I will be. I'm taking care of some unfinished business.

Annie: What if this doesn't work? What if you can't find a second set of DNA? I could lose my child. I -- I can't even trust my own body anymore.

Jeff: That just means that we're going to have to work that much harder. At least now we know what we're looking for. We're not going to stop until we find it.

Annie: And what if we don't?

Jeff: No, "we" -- that's the key word. I'm really good at what I do, but I can't do it alone. I need you to pull it together for Emma -- can you do that?

Annie: Just tell me what I need to do.

Tad: He was watching us. The entire time, that son of a bitch was watching us like a bunch of lab rats in one of his experiments. He set us up. He set the whole thing up. He doused us in hope and he lit a match.

Jamie: We'll find him, Dad.

Tad: How? It's obvious he's been one step ahead of us the entire time. When I think of how easy I made it for him -- I handed it to him. I handed him everything he needed -- my anger, my guilt, Dixie’s pain, all of it. He used it. He used it against us.

Jamie: Well, wait. Why are you even saying this?

Tad: Because he's right! Because I did it. I -- it's my mistake. The whole thing. He knew how badly I needed hope. He knew I was desperate for it, because let's face it, I'm the only reason we lost our last connection to Kate. I'm the reason that Dixie’s never going to know her own daughter.

Jamie: No, no, don't put that on yourself.

Tad: Why shouldn't I? We're never going to know if she's safe, she's happy, or healthy. And what about Del’s kidney condition? Dixie's already living with one kidney. What if it's genetic? Your sister's not going to have a -- a donor family. She's not going to have a match. She could very easily die.

Jamie: Come on, Dad. That's a little out there.

Tad: No, no. What's out there is burying your only hope and being too stupid to dig it up before it dies. I have to live with that. I did that to another human being, and now I don't have to close my eyes anymore -- now I have nightmares when I'm standing up.

Jamie: We'll find Kate, Dad. And we'll find Hayward, and we'll make him pay for everything that he's done.

Tad: I'm a fool. Hayward is nothing if not a liar -- I know that. Nobody knows it better than I do. And in the end, all he had to do was dangle a little hope in front of me, and I jumped all over it, held on for dear life, because I hoped that I could crawl out from under all this guilt, that I'd know what it was like to go through a day, an hour, without hating myself. And here we are -- Kate’s still gone, Dixie’s suffering, Madden’s still dead. No. I'm a fool. He's right. I did this, I did all of it. It's my fault, not his. I did this to myself. I did it to all of us.

Jeff: I’m going to take these samples down to the technicians myself and breathe down their neck, make sure they know how fast we need these results back, hmm?

Annie: Dr. Martin? Thank you, for everything.

Julia: I'm so sorry.

Annie: Thank you. But Dr. Martin was right -- freaking out and feeling sorry for myself isn't going to bring my daughter back any sooner. I need to -- I need to pull it together and focus on getting Emma home. That's all that matters.

Julia: I'm the reason that they took your daughter.

Jonathan: Annie's daughter is with total strangers right now. I mean, Emma doesn't understand what happened or why, and Annie must be losing her mind. So, yes, Erin, I do want to know where Emma is for Annie, so that I can tell Annie myself that her daughter's ok.

Erin: Right, right. That's really sweet, but this is me. This is your sister, the person who knows you better than anyone in the world, and who knows that you don't have any faith in the system.

Jonathan: Ok -- no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Right now, this situation, I want to do what's best for Annie and Emma.

Erin: Wait -- oh, "What's best"? What's best, like -- like when that perv went after Lily again? Jonathan, you didn't sit around. You didn't call 911. You didn't wait for them to find her. No, you went after them. And this time, the system failed again, so you're going to bring Emma to Annie.

Jonathan: Yes. I am, where she belongs -- at home. Hey, Emma is one of the lucky ones here, Erin. She has a mother that actually loves her.

Erin: Yes, yes, like ours did not, I get that.

Jonathan: Yes.

Erin: Don't you think I get that? All right? I understand, but please promise me, I know how your mind works, and I don't want you to do anything crazy. Promise me you will not take that child.

Jonathan: Whatever you want.

Erin: Hmm.

Jonathan: No, I will stay here. When my shift is done, I will go right home.

Erin: Promise me you won't kidnap Emma. Say the words.

Jonathan: I promise that I will not kidnap Emma, but I will see how she's doing. Erin, you have the connections at the Miranda Center, you can use the network. You have to track her down, please. Erin, please -- for Annie, not for me, for Annie.

Erin: Ok.

Jonathan: Yes?

Erin: I'll see what I can do, all right?

Jonathan: Thank -- thank you. Thank you.

Erin: You're welcome, but you promise me, ok? Hey.

Amanda: You are such a liar. You're going to get that little girl back and screw up your life for good.

Jamie: No. You are not the one to blame here. Everything you did, you did because you loved Dixie and Kate. Hayward's the one who should pay, not you. I'm going to go check out Hayward’s old hangouts, dig up any associates, any friends -- not that he had any, but we can do this. We'll hunt him down, drag him back, and we'll show him a whole new level of hell.

Ryan: I would love a piece of that action.

Kendall: This is Babe you're talking to. Use words she understands like "get out," "good-bye," "have a nice trip."

Bianca: Kendall. What happened to J.R. isn't Babe’s fault.

Kendall: It sure as hell isn't your fault. You didn't threaten J.R. -- he threatened you. And you didn't push him out that window -- he played superlush and tried to fly without a cape, because of Babe. How many times have we been on the wrong end of J.R.’s rage, because of Babe? Now, let's just do this before she changes her mind.

Babe: Really, Bianca -- I want to. The only reason that I'm a part of Fusion anyway is because Greenlee wanted payback.

Kendall: Oh. Maybe there is some gray matter in that head after all.

Babe: I knew that it would hurt you, and you were the last person in the world that I ever wanted to hurt again, but I stayed, and I convinced myself if I just worked hard enough, showed enough of an effort, that I could prove that I belonged here. And maybe deep down, I thought that I could make up for some of the damage.

Kendall: Yeah, as if a little overtime could begin to make up for what you and J.R. have done to our family.

Babe: And I do get that now. The pain that I've caused you -- it never seems to stop. You're friends with J.R., both of you, and because of me, he's hurt you and now he's your enemy and -- and now he's hurting himself.

Bianca: J.R. was his own enemy long before you were in the picture, Babe.

Kendall: Yes, but the love of a good woman just sent him to a whole new level.

Babe: And it's clear that when I love someone, hurt isn't that far behind, and since I can't stop loving, I need to find a way to stop hurting the people that I care about.

Kendall: Isn't this the conversation you should've had with yourself before you slept with my brother and then blabbed about it to your husband?

Babe: You are absolutely right. And I don't know if I can fix this, but I do want to try. I really want to make things right, Kendall. Will you please help me?

Kendall: You want me to help you? How about I slap some sense into you?

Bianca: Hey, she's making an effort.

Babe: I am making an effort. But I've also made a lot of mistakes. I took your baby -- and convinced myself that it was ok. I lied to keep J.R. out of prison after he almost killed you -- also ok, because I was saving him. Definite pattern. I claim love every single time, but it's clearly about me, my selfishness. And with Josh, I felt the pull, and I should have walked, but instead I hire him, and I put him right in my face. And then I find an excuse to make it ok for me to be with him, just like I found an excuse to keep J.R. out of prison, and exactly how I found an excuse to keep a baby that wasn’t mine. I want it to stop -- the lies, the excuses, the pain. And if I can’t make things right, the least I can do is get out of your way, because I have taken enough from both of you, and I won’t take anymore.

Kendall: This is so Babe. The easy way out every time. Well, not this time. Not a chance.

Annie: How could what happened to Emma be your fault?

Julia: My friend came to me, and he was in trouble. He was – he was hurt and lost and confused. He had helped me in the past, and I wanted to help. I was the one who pulled your medical file from New York. I told Tad about the DNA test. I am so sorry.

Annie: Do you have any idea what it means to be a mother? To have a tiny life depend on you – to love her and protect her and be there for her no matter what? Do you have any idea what it feels like to have a stranger tell you you don’t deserve your child? Do you know how that feels?

Julia: Yes, I do.

Annie: You know how that feels, but you did it to somebody else anyway?

Julia: If I had known, --

Annie: I -- I have to get dressed.

Jonathan: You should go back to the bar. Del needs watching. He’s been overpouring for the ladies.

Amanda: You don’t get to blow me off.

Jonathan: I’m not going to do anything.

Amanda: You can’t help yourself. Someone you care about is in trouble, you’re there, and you don’t play inside the lines. You shot Terry McDermott to protect Lily, and now you’re planning on kidnapping Emma to save her. You’re not going to do it.

Jonathan: What -- what are you doing?

[Amanda grabs Jonathan’s bag and locks it inside the safe.]

Jonathan: 4-30-16. I set the combination.

Amanda: But if you want the money, you'll have to go through me to get it.

Jamie: Nothing here, so you can just take off.

Tad: No, he's all right. It's all right.

Jamie: I'm sorry, but this is the last thing you need right now.

Tad: Why don't you -- do me a favor, just start making the rounds and see what you can find out. I'll catch up. I'm ok.

Jamie: Well, if you need me, my cell's on.

Ryan: So you let Hayward get away, after everything he's done?

Tad: Well, we're on it. We'll find him.

Ryan: You know, it's too bad he didn't stick around for the grand finale. Really. The Annie McDermott DNA test -- you remember that? The one that you flashed in the hearing? Well, the Department of Family Services used that to take Emma away. Seriously, Hayward would have loved it, because it was the whole child getting ripped from her mother's arms crying and screaming, getting carried away, you know?

Tad: Ryan, I'm sorry.

Ryan: But Hayward -- I mean, the guy just loved the chaos that he created. You know? I mean, he didn't care at all about who got in the way, who got hurt, Emma’s tears -- the whole thing, the whole package. Well, I'll tell you what I'd like to do. I'd like to find him, and I'd like to choke that smirk right off of his face.

Tad: You may get your chance. Our snake was smart enough to slither out of the garden. There's still one person who might know where he went.

[Jonathan picks up Amanda and moves her out of his way.]

Amanda: Hey! I meant "go through me" in a figure-of-speech kind of --

Jonathan: Shh. Stay.

[Safe opens]

Jonathan: You should go back to the bar.

Amanda: Ok, you grab Emma, then what? This could all go so completely wrong, Jonathan. The only thing that is absolutely, positively for sure -- when the cops figure out it was you -- and they will -- you'll own up, just like you did when you shot Terry. The cops want a confession, where do you sign? They want to throw away the key, that's fine by you.

Jonathan: Ok, this -- forget about me, and this situation, please, Amanda. This is not about me. This is about Emma.

Amanda: This is about you! You don't care about yourself anymore, Jonathan. Your future down the toilet, no big deal?

Jonathan: It's my life. Mine. And I don't give a damn. Amanda.

Amanda: You think you can pull this with me? Think again.

Jamie: Hey, Rita, have you seen Dr. Hayward?

Rita: No, we've paged him several times. Nothing. He's AWOL.

Jamie: Do me a favor. Put out the word -- if you hear or anyone sees him, you call me, all right? Thanks.

Rita: Yeah.

Julia: "You knew what it feels like. But you did it to somebody else anyway."

[Seeing Julia crying, Jamie puts his arms around her, but she pulls away.]

Julia: Don't, Jamie, don't.

Kendall: You want to skip out? Leave Fusion now?

Babe: I should have left a long time ago.

Kendall: Hello? Zarf? You bagged him. The only reason he's onboard for our new campaign is you. And kill me now, but if you walk, then he's gone.

Babe: I will talk to him. I'll explain the situation. He'll be fine.

Kendall: No, no, you stay. You do your job and finish what you started. Don't kid yourself "it'll make things right." But it will increase our profits, and that's a good start. This is a business.

Babe: I don't want the money. I -- I -- you can do whatever you want with the shares. You can split them, sell them -- I really don't care.

Kendall: Shove your shares, wipe your raccoon eyes, and just get back to work, please.

Bianca: You heard her.

Tad: Excuse me. I'm sorry to interrupt. Babe, can I talk to you for a minute?

Kendall: Why not? Maybe then, she'll get some work done.

Babe: Kendall, look, I really don't feel comfortable staying --

Kendall: Listen, the man said he needed to talk to you, so go talk already.

[Tad and Babe go to the terrace.]

Kendall: Oh. What?

Bianca: I love you. You're the best. You are kind and generous --

Kendall: We're not halfway through the quarterlies yet.

Bianca: My big, ooey-gooey, squishy sister -- what you did for Babe --

Kendall: I -- I just wanted to shut her up.

Bianca: You just wanted to help her.

Kendall: I -- I did not.

Bianca: Did, too. You know how much Fusion means to her. And especially now, when everything in her life is falling down around her. You couldn't take it away from her.

Kendall: Would you stop, ok? It was practical. The campaign needs her.

Bianca: Come here.

Kendall: No.

Bianca: Come on.

Kendall: Oh -- I -- you know what? I really -- I want to finish this before the end of the year. Please --

Bianca: Please, Kendall. Please, come on.

Kendall: Yeah, all right.

Bianca: All right. Aw.

Kendall: Ok. Great. Can we get -- please, you know what? I got to get back to work.

Bianca: Hmm.

Kendall: Really, really, I do. Ok.

Bianca: Yeah.

Kendall: Great, hug's over. Yeah, it's nice.

Bianca: Hmm. I love you --

Kendall: Oh --

Bianca: So much.

Kendall: Binks, this mushy stuff is really putting us behind schedule.

[Bianca laughs]

Kendall: I love you, too, ok? I love you, too.

Babe: J.R., you -- Dixie. Jamie. What am I supposed to do, Tad? How am I supposed to live with what I've done and with what my father has done? There's no end. It's like there's always something. I'm just like my father.

Tad: Hey, don't say that. Don't you ever say that. That's not true. You are nothing like your father. Babe, you didn't plan to get J.R. drunk. You didn't plan to push him out a window. Your father did. David planned every single detail, to cause maximum pain.

Babe: Yeah, but it still happened off of what I did.

Tad: Maybe. But the difference between you and your father is -- you try to fix it. You fight like hell to make up for the pain. You don't get distracted, you don't give up. You keep going until you make things right. That's a big difference.

Amanda: All you see is what you've lost -- and what you think that other people have lost because of you. You're my friend, and you're a brother. You are an important part to a lot of lives. Don't throw it away. Fight for it. Fight as hard for yourself as you do for the people that you care about.

Jonathan: Amanda, there's a little girl out there right now that needs help.

Amanda: You want to do the right thing? You want to make a difference? Be there, Jonathan. Be there when Emma comes home. Be there for Annie until she does. Be there for Ryan. Keep your promise to Erin. You have a responsibility to your family, your friends. And you don't get to chuck it all, because some bad things happened. You're loved. You're needed. If you do this, you risk everything. And if you lose, you will miss out on the life that you deserve.

Jamie: Come on, I hate seeing you like this.

Julia: Well, then go. Sorry. I messed up. I hurt someone horribly. I thought I was doing the right thing.

Jamie: I know about doing the right thing. I practically wrote the book. And sometimes you hurt people who don't deserve it. It sucks, but it happens.

Julia: You don't have to worry about me.

Jamie: Well, that's not your call. I care about you whether we're together or not. Now, you can talk to me, Julia. Just -- just let me help you.

[Julia walks away.]

Ryan: Hey. Are you all right?

Annie: Dr. Martin delivered the samples. It's just waiting and waiting and more waiting, and Emma is out there somewhere.

Ryan: If I could speed it up, you know I would. Better yet, warp speed reverse and just make it all go away. Just snap my fingers, and it'd be gone.

Annie: Magic?

Ryan: Well, you know, I got some tricks up my sleeve. I don't like to brag, really, you know? I'll show them to Emma as soon as she comes home. How about that, you know, quarter out of the ear, pull a rabbit out of the hat? Of course, I'm a little bit rusty.
