Erica: Maybe we don't belong together. Maybe we should get a divorce.
David: When Krystal leaves, you will follow, Babe. Are you there, Dixie? You know what I'm talking about, don't you? You have the ammunition to get the ball rolling. But in case you don't have the guts to use it, allow me. Oh, Krystal? Just so you know, you could've prevented this. I told you to look after our daughter -- get her out of that house, away from J.R. -- but you wouldn't listen. You thought you knew what was best, but as always, you were so wrong.
Babe: Ok, how much more of this crap do we have to listen to?
David: You made the supreme error, Krystal. You fell for the enemy. But in all your dreams of the good life with Adam and your new child, you're sacrificing our daughter, and I cannot let that happen. I cannot let you protect your child over ours. So it's --
[TV screen shatters when Babe hurls a vase at it.]
Adam: What on earth --
Krystal: Babe, honey --
Babe: I hate him.
Krystal: Honey --
Babe: I hate him. I don't have a father my entire life, and then this is what I get, and then he, what, he just ups and leaves me? He's never going to stop hurting us, Mama, and now he's trying to control my life by going after the people that I care about.
Krystal: Sweetheart --
Babe: I hate him! Ugh! He finds out I'm with Josh, and he can't wait to run and tell J.R., to stick the knife in, and now he's threatening you and your marriage? No! No. And let's -- let's not even think about us. What about you guys, huh? How cruel could he possibly be to tell you that your daughter is alive, let you believe that she's here? He's not even human. I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm so sorry.
Dixie: Babe, you don't have to feel --
Babe: No, no, no, please, please, please, Dixie. Seriously, because you know what? I get it now. I do. I -- I get why everyone hates me, why they want me gone out of Pine Valley, out of their lives -- with J.R. Let's see -- Erica -- oh, you. Come on, Adam. Let's admit it -- I disgust you, and why shouldn't I? I came from -- from him. I'm part of him. David Hayward is evil, and that means that I am evil, too, and everyone should hate me! You should hate me. You -- you hate me!
Tad: Take it easy.
Babe: Stop pretending that you like me, Tad!
Tad: No -- stop. Take it easy.
Babe: Why is he my father?
Babe: I just want --
Tad: It's going to be ok. It's going to be all right.
Babe: I hate him.
Tad: I know, I know. Come here.
Babe: I hate him!
Tad: Come here, look at me, sweetie. Come on. Listen to me. Just listen to me for a second, ok? He is gone. You understand? He's gone, and we are going to let him take all the pain and all the sadness he has ever caused us. So you push that out of your mind. Do it right now. You've got more important things to deal with. Your father doesn't define you any more than mine defined me. You decide who you are. From now on, we are not going to let him get to us or take anything from us ever again. Ok? That's my girl. That's my girl. You're going to be ok. You're going to be just fine.
Colby: Sean, that doesn't make any sense. How could you be responsible for your dad's love life falling apart?
Sean: You know, I don't know about you, but I never got to taste the turkey at my dysfunctional family feast. BJís is still open. You want to go see what's got feathers on the menu?
Colby: No. I would rather hear the answer to my question. You know, I could be a semi-decent friend when I want to be. So tell me, who was this great love of your dad's life?
Sean: My Aunt Erica.
Erica: Well, it's very clear where Jack stands. He wants a divorce.
Bianca: Uncle Jack, this -- this is just anger. You're acting impulsively. This is not what you want.
Jack: Come on, Bianca. It's very clear that this is exactly what your mother's after.
Josh: Divorce, huh? Just what the doctor ordered?
Erica: I'll send for the rest of my things in the morning.
Kendall: Please, Mom, don't do this, Mother.
Bianca: No, don't go now. Let's, the four of us, go somewhere privately and talk it out.
Erica: No, I really -- I really just need to be alone right now. Actually, Brooke, you must be thrilled. You just got the go-ahead.
Brooke: Oh, thanks, Erica -- finally my chance.
Ryan: How would you like to grab Emma and bail?
Annie: Race you to the kiddie table.
Myrtle: Talk to me, Mona. Tell me she's not headed for divorce number 10.
Zach: What kind of sign you looking for?
Zach: A thunderbolt, lightning -- something?
Maitre d': Mr. Slater?
Maitre d': You can offer to grease my palm with all the tea in China. But this was the last Thanksgiving this circus of a family will ever spend at the Valley Inn.
Zach: All right.
Lily: Hey, Dad?
Jack: Yeah, honey?
Lily: Look, I know that you're really upset and it's really hard right now. But if your marriage wasn't going to work out, then it's really best that you break up. It's best in the -- in the long run.
Jack: Yeah. Amanda, would you be so kind as to drive Lily home?
Amanda: Oh. Sure thing.
Lily: Did I say something wrong?
Lily: Are you trying to get rid of me?
Jack: No, honey, not at all. No. It's just -- this party's over.
Amanda: I'm sorry.
Jack: I'll see you.
Jeff: Jack, can I have a word with you?
Jack: Sure you can, Jeff. I wouldn't want to miss this.
Zach: What do you say we get out of here?
Kendall: Yeah, I would really love to, but I think my mom needs me, so I'm going to stay. You wait up for me?
Zach: I'll think about it.
Zach: Looks like it's you and me, kid.
Kendall: Ok. Great. So now what do we do?
Bianca: Oh, God, I don't know. I'm torn between laugh and cry.
Kendall: Yeah, me, too. But I feel like someone needs to go up there and be with Mom. I mean, she can't be by herself.
Bianca: Oh, someone already has.
[Knock on door]
Erica: Please, girls, just understand that I just need some time alone.
Josh: It's me, Erica.
Sean: Once upon a time, there was this 8-year-old dweeb with crazy hair who was branded a Math idiot. One night while sitting in his room, staring a long-division problem in the face, just wishing the damn thing would solve itself, he overheard his mom and dad arguing in the den. And while the Math dork dreamed of living in a house with thicker walls, he heard his mom accusing his dad of still being in love with Erica pain. His dad denied it, but then Mom said that he would still be married to Ms. Pain if it weren't for -- Sean. And not a single one of them lived happily ever after. The end. Come on, don't look so bummed. This story has a great moral. If you love Erica Kane, don't have a baby with someone else.
Colby: But your mom and dad had you to save your sister.
Sean: Yeah, funny how that worked out. I saved a life and killed true love all before I cracked my first smile. The last thing I want to do is hurt my Uncle Jack how I hurt my dad.
Jack: All right, Jeff, it's just the two us, and you've got the floor.
Jeff: Jack, you're an idiot.
Jack: That's certainly constructive.
Jeff: Do you really think that Erica and I are having an affair? Carrying on behind your back?
Jack: I know, because you've admitted it, that you're after her.
Jeff: Well, I'm not even close to getting her. Did you know she was ready to move back home when you had all of her things shipped over here? Had you skipped that one vindictive little act, the two of you might be very well together right now. But once you did that, and then showing up here with another woman -- Jack, if your marriage ends, it's no one's fault but your own.
Jack: Oh, are you kidding me? Erica's not innocent in all of this, Jeff. She's the one that moved out of our home to move into a hotel across the hall from you. And she drags you to this -- our family get-together.
Jeff: The reason she invited me here was because she was angry at you, and she needed some backup. Now, don't get me wrong. I enjoy spending time with that woman. And frankly, if you weren't so damn pigheaded, you might remember feeling that way about her yourself, too.
Jack: I've never stopped feeling that way about her, Jeff. You know, if I didn't know better, I'd say you were trying to get us back together. Is that what this is all about?
Jeff: No. The battle for Erica is just beginning. I just want to make sure it's a fair one.
Brooke: How are you doing?
Jack: Oh -- good question.
Brooke: No answer?
Jack: Maybe I'll have an answer after my blood stops boiling.
Brooke: So, when are we getting married?
Erica: You're the last person I expected to come up here.
Josh: I'm beginning to think this wasn't a good idea.
Erica: Oh, Josh, no, please. Please don't go. Please, I -- I like your being here.
Josh: I just wanted to make sure you were ok.
Erica: I can't tell you how much that means to me.
Josh: Look, this mess you're in with Jack -- it's none of my business. I don't know what your problems are. I don't want to know. But if you're not happy in your marriage, maybe you should just walk away. I mean, no one should stay in a relationship that's not working for them.
Erica: Is that what you told Babe?
Josh: Will you leave Babe out of this?
Erica: Oh, please don't misunderstand. I'm not attacking you. I know how you feel about her. And I also know that -- that no matter what she's put you through, that you just want to keep her safe. That's one of the things that I know about you. You have a really big heart. I guess you don't like to hear that, but it's true. It's one of the things I love most about you. I -- I love you, Josh. And I am still so sorry that you're hurting. And I would give anything to make everything ok for you again.
Josh: I'm fine. Really. I'll be fine.
Babe: I don't know what got into me in there. I'm sorry. David obviously knows how to push the right buttons.
Tad: Well, to tell you the truth, I don't think your father's the reason that happened. I think you've been being hit by raw sewage lately from different sides, and you're sitting on a mountain of guilt. You want to talk about it?
Adam: What the devil is she doing?
Krystal: Would you just ease up on Babe, Adam?
Adam: Of course, Hayward was trying to make trouble with his video message. Wreaking havoc is what he does best. But smashing the television? And -- and the hysteria? Don't you think Babe was overreacting just a bit?
Krystal: I -- I think that this has been building up in that poor girl for quite some time now. Between J.R.ís threats and pressure from Josh -- I mean, the judgments from half of Pine Valley. And then you, threatening to take her son away from her?
Adam: Oh --
Krystal: Listen, I think that seeing her daddy's big old face on that screen was just the straw that broke my baby doll's back.
Adam: Your baby doll is not a victim, Krystal. And she's got to stop acting like one, before she comes back into this house, and before J.R. comes home. It's going to be bad enough when he sees that she's still living here. And if she comes out with a -- with a blastoff like that in front of him? No, I'm sorry. All the promises I made are out. She's gone, she's out. I want to call the hospital, find out how my son is doing.
Krystal: Oh, not now, Dixie.
Dixie: Yeah, now. You think I didn't catch that? That little look between you and Babe when Adam put the disc in? You were terrified that David was going to say that the child you're carrying isn't Adam's. And Babe knew it! That's why she freaked out. That's why she broke the TV and the disc, right?
Krystal: You're right, Dixie. David was on the verge of telling my husband that this baby is Tadís.
Dixie: So you're finally admitting it? The child you're carrying is Tadís? And Babe knows it?
Krystal: Of course not, Dixie. I'm only agreeing that David was getting ready to spread this lie with his nasty little video. This baby is not Tadís. My little girl is a Chandler through and through. Tad knows that, we've talked about it, and he has accepted it, and I just wish you would, too.
Dixie: Well, then why go to such extremes to keep Tad from hearing what David had to say? Can you prove that it's not a lie?
Krystal: Isn't this family going through enough turmoil as it is without adding Davidís lies to it? Oh, come on. Babe called it when she said that David was evil. He would do anything to break up my marriage. You know, to hurt Adam, to hurt me. And he would love nothing more than to give Tad hope, and make him believe that he is a father of a child that isn't his. You don't want him to go through that kind of hell again, do you?
Babe: I think I'm going to pass on your invitation to let it all out after my little battle with the TV and the disc. I mean, I'm -- I'm pretty much emotionally tapped out right now.
Tad: Understand. Before I go, I just want to say one thing that I would never say in front of Dixie, ever. It's very easy to love somebody dearly, and not be in love with them. You're under no obligation to stay with J.R.
Babe: But I'm not staying out of obligation. I want my marriage to work. I love J.R. I love Little A. And I never want to be separated from them, ever.
Tad: You're sure? You're absolutely sure you're not staying with J.R. just so you can be with Little Adam?
Babe: No. Why does everyone think that?
Tad: Because I'll bet you $5 that Adamís already made a move to get his hands on Little A. I was at the hospital. I saw the way he went after you. There is no way he'll let you leave this house with his grandson.
Babe: No, we settled it. I'm staying.
Tad: Well, if I know Adam, he's still threatening you. So, I want to help you. Because Little Adam is your son. Your flesh and blood. And no one on this planet has the right to keep you from your child.
Ryan: First, I'd like to say that I am really, really, really -- really, really sorry.
Ryan: Well, Thanksgiving dinner didn't exactly work out to be the celebration --
Ryan: That I'd hoped for, you know?
Annie: Well, although it's always terrible watching a marriage blow up in your face, compared to last year's Thanksgiving, it was pretty fantastic.
Ryan: Wow. That's not saying a whole lot for last year, I'm afraid.
Annie: Yeah. Well, it was a year ago Emma and I went on the run from Terry. Thanksgiving dinner consisted of vending machine potato chips and flat soda on the bed of a cheesy motel room. So, yeah. Last year pretty much blew. But fast-forward one year, and we are together, and we are safe, and we have a life again, so -- sometimes you just have to go through the bad to really appreciate the good. Right?
Ryan: You got that right.
Annie: Oh, no, no -- wait, wait. I want to make a toast.
Ryan: Oh, ok. To next year's Thanksgiving being better than this year's?
Annie: To you.
Ryan: To me?
Annie: For all of the help that you've given Emma and me. And now that all the drama's over, you are finally off the hook.
Kendall: If we can just convince Jeff to leave Mom alone, then she won't be so distracted. Then may she can focus on working things out with Jack.
Josh: Well, that'll never happen. Jeff's fallen hard for Erica. And Jack -- that guy's a total jerk. It's only a matter of time before Ericaís back with husband number one.
Erica: Jeff -- oh, come in.
Jeff: Erica, how is it after one of the most stressful nights, you could still look like a million bucks?
Erica: Oh. Thank you. I may look ok, but I certainly feel like a fool. I mean, all that talk about fighting for my marriage -- that was a joke. There was never any marriage to fight for to begin with.
Jeff: Oh, you really don't mean that.
Erica: Oh, yes, I do. I mean, Jack would be the first to agree. I hope he and Brooke English are very happy.
Brooke: I am so sorry if there was anything that I did today to make things more difficult for you. I mean, you know, usually I'm pretty good at ignoring Ericaís zingers, but every once in a while, she gets in a dig that I just can't back away from, and, you know, I admit, I enjoy putting that woman in her place. But certainly, you know, not at your expense. And I -- I just hope I didn't make things worse.
Jack: No need for you to apologize. None of this -- none of this is your fault.
Erica: I hate Brooke English. But it's Jack -- I mean, Jack has such unfair expectations of me and our marriage. I mean, he resents my work, my career, my fame, my independence. And I'm sorry, but if he really expects me to be like some stay-at-home housewife waiting for him with his little slippers and a casserole when he walks through the door, then he's married to the wrong woman. And -- and the thing is, he knew what he signed on for when he asked me to be his wife. So if our marriage falls apart, he'd better not point the finger at me. I wanted to fight for our marriage. I told you that. You knew that. No, Jack is solely responsible for the -- the destruction of our marriage.
Brooke: So, what about Jeff Martin?
Jack: He just may end up with my wife.
Jeff: Erica, you really don't want a divorce, do you?
Kendall: Jack is not a jerk. He's a wonderful man, he's a great husband, and he is head-over-heels nuts for our mother. Um -- tonight doesn't count.
Bianca: You know, the term "soul mates" is overused, but it actually applies to the two of them.
Josh: Yeah, well, from what I heard, Erica had a long line of soul mates before Jack, and since Jeff was the first, that's got to up his stock. What? What's so funny?
Kendall: Don't laugh, Binks.
Bianca: I'm not laughing. I'm smiling.
Josh: What, is this a nervous thing?
Bianca: Uh -- no. You're arguing with us about Mom, which must mean that you actually care about her.
Kendall: That's right, actually. You actually stood up in the middle of this family fight and -- and defended when Jack was on the attack.
Bianca: Yeah, yeah, like it was perfectly natural.
Kendall: Mm-hmm, yes. No, no, that's it, then. Love it or hate it, it's official.
Bianca: You're one of us.
Kendall: Mm-hmm. You are part of the family.
Josh: I need a drink.
Brooke: How long have we been friends?
Jack: Long time.
Brooke: And how many times have you been there for me?
Jack: I don't know.
Brooke: Well, that's enough said, because I remember when Jamie was born, and I couldn't even hold him after the accident. Who sang him to sleep with "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"?
Jack: I remember that.
Brooke: I just want you to know that if there's anything that I can do to make things easier for you, I want you to tell me. And if you don't tell me, I'm going to be very upset.
Jack: Well, actually, Brooke, there is one thing -- if you could ask Jeff Martin out on a date.
Brooke: You don't really think that there's anything going on between Erica and Jeff, do you? Listen, you and Erica have hit speed bumps before and you've always come back to each other.
Jack: Yeah, sure, but a divorce is more of a road block than a speed bump, don't you think?
Brooke: Well, you know what I think? I think that the only way you're going to lose Erica to Jeff is if you want to.
Erica: I don't want a divorce? Excuse me?
Jeff: Erica, if things were over between you and Jack, you wouldn't be so worked up right now. Now, don't get me wrong -- if I thought that you were really ready to give him up, I'd be popping the cork right now. But no one goes from wanting to fight for their marriage to wanting to have a divorce as fast as you did.
Erica: Well, I thought you'd be ecstatic, my marriage over.
Jeff: Erica, I want you. But if that's going to happen, I need to know that you want me, too. Now, you know where I stand. The rest is up to you.
Ryan: I am still trying to figure out what hook you're letting me off of.
Annie: The McDermott hook. Come on, don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. You've been devoting half your life to protecting Emma and me -- first with Terry, and then with Tad and Dixie, and then the whole DNA fiasco. Trust me, it means the world to me. I seriously don't think I could've gotten through the past few months without you.
Annie: But, you know, I'm sure you're itching to get back to your own life and -- and friends and dates.
Ryan: Hmm. You are so right. Wow, check it out. I mean, check out the list of phone calls and e-mails that I got to return and -- and appointments. I mean, do you think I can get through all those before June of 2007?
Annie: "Take -- take Spike to zoo" --
Annie: "Take Spike to office."
Ryan: Right. I mean, you know -- oh, I forgot the most important one here. I got, um -- "Take Spike out for ice cream with Annie and Emma." Yeah, there. So, you see -- except for the Spike man, I'm pretty much wide open. So don't let me off the hook, ok? I like to spend time with you. Mm-hmm. I want to spend more time with you.
Babe: You're a great guy, Tad. And I really do appreciate you offering to help me with my son, but -- really, I -- I'm fine. No one is ever taking Little A away from me again.
Tad: J.R. and Adam have already done it once before.
Babe: But I'm going to make it work with J.R. -- I have to. You have no idea how much I want my family back.
Tad: Actually, I do.
Dixie: If Tad could hold his own little girl in his arms --
Krystal: But he can't. I know Adam asked you to move in here, to be with J.R. when he gets out of the hospital --
Krystal: And help him recover.
Dixie: He did, and I agreed.
Krystal: Well, let me tell you something -- if you keep threatening to spread this lie of Davidís, then I'm going to have to tell Adam that I don't think it's a good idea, and he listens to me.
Dixie: Don't you dare try to blackmail me, Krystal. I just want to know for sure that baby isn't Tadís.
Krystal: She isnít. What more do I have to say?
Dixie: Swear it.
Krystal: Ok -- I swear it, all right?
Adam: Is there a problem I should know about?
Sean: Look, you saw Erica when she walked in on that party the first day I came to town. She's wanted me gone ever since. And I would be if Uncle Jack hadn't stepped in and told her to forget it. I heard them arguing about me. Erica lost, I stayed. Next thing you know, she's staying at the Valley Inn.
Colby: Sean, I'm sorry -- hmm. People don't just break up over a visiting nephew. There has to be more than that.
Sean: There is another guy scoping Erica out -- her first husband.
Colby: Dr. Josh's dad? Hmm. Ok, that makes sense. Erica is cheating on your uncle with her ex. That's worse than my sister-in-law. Ok, well, this is not your fault or your problem.
Sean: You are some spin doctor, Colby.
Colby: Is that bad?
Sean: No. I like it.
Colby: Well, I like that you're telling me real things about yourself.
Krystal: How's J.R.?
Adam: He's still in terrible pain. Are you going to answer my question? I've caught you two in so many clandestine huddles lately that I've lost count. What's going on?
Dixie: Krystal's a little uneasy with me staying here. She knows that you and I aren't exactly friendly. But she doesn't have to worry. I won't cause any trouble.
Krystal: That's all I wanted to hear. Why don't I show you to your room, huh?
Babe: I really wanted Emma to be Kate. We all did.
Tad: And if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
Babe: So what are you going to do? How are you going to go on not knowing where your daughter is?
Tad: I don't know. I just will.
Zach: So that was it -- Thanksgiving come and gone. Christmas is next. And the best thing about Christmas -- it's going to be just you and me, your mom and Ryan for most of the day and presents. Uh-huh. I don't know if you saw that big, fat guy in the red suit running around the department stores, but what happens is -- I mean, the story goes, he's going to come right down this chimney and leave presents for you. Boxes of presents -- candy and toys, maybe a signed jersey, occasional live animal. It's great. I love you, little man. Mmm.
Annie: You really want to spend more time with us?
Ryan: Not us -- actually, you. I mean, don't get me wrong. I -- I love to spend time with Emma. I'm crazy about her, but I just -- I don't know. I -- I was wondering if you'd like to go see a concert or a movie or have dinner or all three -- I mean, not all three in the same night. I -- you know, space it out over several nights, so that's more slots to fill in the calendar, you know?
Annie: So you're asking me out?
Ryan: Is that all right?
Annie: Yeah, it's great.
Ryan: Great. So, what do you have going on tomorrow night?
Annie: Oh. Well, let me check my social calendar. Um -- yeah, just as I thought -- nothing.
Ryan: Perfect. Perfect, because you know what -- there's this great movie I want to take you to. It's about a fugitive, you know, who's on the run --
Annie: Oh, that's just wrong.
Ryan: Ok, ok, ok. Ok.
Annie: That's not funny.
Ryan: All right, I'm sorry.
Ryan: To tomorrow.
Annie: To tomorrow.
Colby: You seem bummed.
Sean: Oh, just thinking.
Sean: Your birthday, actually -- the night we hooked up on the yacht? I know I hurt you with all that, and I just don't want anyone else hurting because of me.
Colby: Sean, if you think I'm here to hook up with you, I'm not. I like hanging out with you. You're fun. So, I downloaded this new song. Check it out. Here.
[While the music plays, Erica looks through her latest wedding photo album while Jeff and Jack pine over her and her three children enjoy a drink together. Meanwhile, over at the Chandler Mansion, Tad comforts Babe while Adam hugs Krystal as she picks up Davidís broken disc and Dixie looks on from the sideline. At the condo, Zach opens the door for a breath of fresh air and finds a large note saying ďYou Murdered Her.Ē]
Singer: I don't want to feel any more pain. Tell me can I sleep this away? When I needed you the most, you left me feeling jaded and strange; and this feels so real, makes me want to scream.
Singers: I said all I had to say. I've prayed all that I could pray. It's that I need you. I've never felt something so real.
Singer: I said all I had to say.
Singers: I've prayed all that I could pray.
Singer: I'd give up on all of my dreams, just so that I could be in yours. Thank you for all of the shared memories.
Singers: I said all I had to say. I've prayed all that I could pray. It's that I need you. I've never felt something so real. I said all I had to say. I've prayed all that I could pray.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Tad (to Krystal): Were you ever going to tell me that the baby you're carrying isn't Adamís? That it's mine?
Jamie (to Bianca): He's determined to go straight. He doesn't want anything to mask the pain.
Ryan (to Kendall): I have signed away all parental rights to Spike.
