Babe: The day that -- that you put this ring on my finger, you said that you never wanted to lose me again, that you never wanted to go through another day that we weren't together. Now, I know that a lot has happened since then, and I keep saying this, but I don't expect you to forgive and forget overnight. But can't you just at least leave your mind open to the possibility that someday that you may look at me and feel the way that you felt back then?
Adam: What are you doing in here? J.R. is fresh out of the hospital, Babe. Even the slightest agitation wracks him with pain.
Babe: We're in the middle of something. Do you think you could give us some time alone, please?
Adam: Is she upsetting you, son? Say the word, and she's gone.
J.R.: She can stay.
Amanda: Hey, guys, special delivery from one of Santaís elves.
Del: Well, I'll forfeit my present if I can keep the elf.
Jonathan: Let's just see what you got here.
Amanda: Not yet. This surprise requires a little work on your part. So close your eyes --
Del: All right, I like it already.
Amanda: And imagine the pure innocence of Christmas.
Del: Oh, bah, humbug.
Amanda: Come on.
Jonathan: Would you just shut up and let her talk?
Amanda: Think Santa Claus, reindeer, mistletoe, holly --
Del: What about goodwill towards the man that set you up in your dream pad at next-to-nothing rent? What'd you get me?
Amanda: It's for all the bartenders and the assistant manager -- and it's not really a gift. It's more of a --
Jonathan: Ok, would you just let us see that --
Jonathan: Oh. You've lost your mind.
Ryan: Hey. You got my message?
Bianca: Yeah. Is everything ok?
Ryan: It's about Simone.
Kendall: Well, it couldn't have been a bad dream -- not with that crazy smile on your face.
Zach: I don't remember.
Kendall: Well, why don't you close your eyes, relax, and just try to imagine the last image that was going on in your head right before you woke up.
Woman: I love you, you know.
Kendall: You're not closing your eyes.
Zach: There's no need. If I was smiling, I must've been dreaming about my beautiful wife.
Josh: Erin? Erin?
[On Fusionís rooftop, Josh finds Erin dead with a white flower in her hands and a ribbon in her hair.]
Josh: Yeah, put me through to police headquarters. I need to report a murder. Chief Frye, it's Josh Madden. Do you know where Dani is?
Derek: The operator said you were calling to report a murder, Josh. Are you telling me my daughter's involved somehow? Is Danielle in danger?
Josh: Look, all I know is I came to the -- the Fusion rooftop and found Erin Lavery dead.
Derek: My God.
Josh: No way is this another accident, either. It's all there -- the ribbon, the flowers. It's exactly what they did to Simone.
Ryan: "I know what you're probably thinking -- 'Simone actually had the forethought to make a will?' To be honest, I didnít. I never would've even considered it if it hadn't been for Ethan dying so suddenly. Death changes everything, doesn't it? It changes the way you look at the world. It made me face the fact that a day is going to come when I won't be here anymore." Hey, you ok?
Bianca: Yeah. I just -- I just don't -- it's just so unreal. I mean, why would -- why would Simone write me a letter? I just -- I don't understand.
Ryan: You will. "So I better dole out my fortune while I still have all my faculties -- and by 'fortune,' I don't mean my designer shoe collection which I am considering donating to Kate Hudson -- I hear we have the same size, by the way. Anyway, the reason I'm writing to you, Bianca, is because Ethan left me a substantial trust fund --"
Bianca: Oh, no, no, wait a minute. Stop right there. She can't be leaving me anything. No, that's not right. This -- it should be Kendall standing here, not me.
Ryan: Well, the letter is addressed to you.
Bianca: How did you get -- how did you get it?
Ryan: She made me the executor of her will. I know. I just found out myself. I guess she said that she wanted it to be me, because I'm so close to everyone she would like to bequeath things to.
Bianca: Well, leave it to Simone to do things with a personal touch. But why me?
Ryan: Here, you find out yourself.
Bianca: Um -- "Ethan left me a substantial trust fund, and there's only one person on this earth that he would want that money to go to other than me, and that's Miranda. She was his baby cousin, and even though he didn't know her very well, he loved her very much. Consider this Ethanís and my last gift to your sweet baby girl."
Adam: I haven't heard anything thrown or broken yet.
Adam: You think that --
Krystal: That Babeís making some headway?
Krystal: I sure hope so.
Adam: I tried to get through to J.R. myself.
Krystal: You -- you gave it a great shot. And you let Babe stay here with her son, and I will always love the socks off of you for that.
Adam: Hmm. For that, you get a massage.
Krystal: Oh, well, good -- I need one. Hmm.
Adam: I think I got J.R. to admit -- or at least not deny -- that the terrible anger he feels toward Babe is the result of a broken heart.
Krystal: You think he still loves her?
Adam: Oh, yes. He's as crazy about her as I am about you, Krystal. I can't imagine how devastated I would be if I were in his shoes.
Krystal: Here --
Adam: I honest -- I honestly think I wouldn't be able to bear you being with another man even for a second. Luckily, I'll never have to know what that feels like.
Josh: Is Babe there?
Colby: Would you give it a rest, already?
Josh: Colby, I need to talk to her.
Colby: Uh -- eight ball says no, Dr. Josh.
Josh: Just -- just tell me one thing -- is she safe? Is she all right -- yes or no?
Colby: Babe is not all right. Babe is dead.
[Colby hangs up]
Babe: Well, you haven't kicked me out of here. Must be a good sign. Maybe you're thinking what I said makes sense about us finding our way back to each other?
J.R.: It's going to take a lot more that just some little speech about our wedding vows. Our marriage has taken so many hits, Babe. I'm not sure that we can even get back up and -- and go for another round.
Babe: So, what, we just give up? No, no, I won't, I can't.
J.R.: What is it, exactly, that you're hoping for, and why do you think that I can give it to you?
Babe: Because we had it?
J.R.: Us happy? That was so quick, I'm still not convinced it wasn't even a dream.
Babe: It was real. The J.R. that I met on the pier, the one I fell in love with -- we were on our way back to being perfect.
J.R.: We were never perfect, Babe. I was never perfect. You really need to give up this fairy tale. I'm no Prince Charming, and I never will be.
Babe: I know who you are. Better than anyone, I know you, J.R. and I love you and I haven't given up on our marriage -- please don't you.
Kendall: Oh -- here. No -- yeah.
Josh: Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?
Kendall: It's a telemarketer. Just ignore it.
Kendall: Yeah, uh-huh.
Kendall: Huh. Come on.
Josh: Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?
Zach: Hang on.
Kendall: Oh. Oh.
Josh: Zach? Zach, this is Josh Madden. Is Kendall there? Is she all right?
Zach: Yeah, she is. What do you want?
Josh: You need to find Bianca, make sure she's ok.
Zach: What happened?
Josh: I just found Erin Lavery -- dead. The Fusion rooftop. It's just like Simone.
Di: Not that I don't love your company, but tell me again why you're here swilling whiskey when you could be back up in that igloo you call an apartment?
Aidan: Ah. I'm done, and I'm done. I am ready to put the "wild" in Wildwind.
Di: Just that? Aidan, no, I mean, everything -- like, all your stuff. When are you going to pack it all up?
Aidan: You kidding me? What are you expecting, a dump truck full of stuff?
Jonathan: No -- I mean -- I am into the holidays and all that jazz, really. But I don't care if old St. Nick himself came falling through the ceiling and asked me personally. I'm not putting that on my head.
Amanda: Come on.
Jonathan: I'm not doing it.
Del: Don't be such a scrooge, man. Huh? I'm guessing this is strictly work-related. But in the off change this is some weird fetish of yours, I will happily wear the cap around the house -- just the cap, if that's what you want. You let me know.
Jonathan: You better lock your door. Because I'm just thinking that you're liable to waking up to a big baboon wearing reindeer antlers and a nose that glows.
Jonathan: Ok, now, that was -- that was just some friendly advice, because I didn't forget that you don't need protection.
Amanda: Sounds like it's right outside.
Kendall: Ok. Seriously, Zach, what is so important that you have to run out like this? Spikey and I have very fragile egos.
Zach: Yeah, well, you and Spike can rest assured that I would rather stay here with you guys. If this weren't so urgent -- I'd rather be in bed with you.
Kendall: That's it? Huh, how do you like that? We're getting the bum's rush and your workaholic stepdad won't even tell us what this life-or-death situation is.
[The police arrive on Fusionís rooftop to investigate Erinís murder.]
Kendall: Ok. Ok. So you won't tell us who called, you won't tell us what's wrong. Now, you better throw me some sort of a bone here or I want to do that whole jumping-to-conclusions thing that you hate.
Zach: I'm --
Kendall: What? What is going on?
Zach: Annie. You here alone?
Annie: Oh, yeah. I'm meeting Ryan. I think for the first time in my life, I'm actually early.
Zach: Well, it's awful cold out here. Come inside. Kendall, we have a guest. Why don't you offer Annie a glass of wine?
Kendall: Oh --
Annie: Oh, really, I -- I can wait outside. It's not that cold.
Zach: No --
Annie: I'm sure you guys have some things to do.
Kendall: Yeah, actually, I have to give Spike a bath, so --
Zach: It's fine. I got to go, but you can keep each other company.
Annie: You know, Ryan really should be here any second, so --
Zach: Yeah? Maybe. Sometimes people get sidetracked, it happens. People get sidetracked, so stop fighting me, have a glass of wine with my beautiful wife. Why are you crying? It's ok. Give me a kiss.
Kendall: Well, he doesn't want you to go, neither do I.
Kendall: Ok, bye.
Kendall: I -- oh. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Sweetness, sweetness. You're all right, it's ok.
[Once outside, Zach gets on his cell phone.]
Zach: Sid? Can you see me? All right. Whatever security you got on the place, double it -- now. How about now? Good. You see anyone near this place, you let me know. Don't let anybody get near my wife. Ryan? Zach. Is Bianca with you?
Ryan: She's here, actually. Why?
Zach: Tell her to sit tight.
Ryan: What's going on?
Zach: Something happened tonight on the Fusion rooftop.
Ryan: I'm on my way. I have to -- have to run out for a little bit, ok? Do you mind sticking -- sticking around here? Maybe you could read through the documents, sign them on your own?
Bianca: Oh, sure, yeah.
Bianca: Is everything ok?
Ryan: Uh, yeah.
[Door opens and closes]
Josh: I sometimes come up here to think, to clear my head. I literally got up here seconds before I called you.
Derek: And you found Miss Lavery like that?
Josh: Yeah. It was too late to do anything. Did you talk to Dani? Is she ok?
Derek: Yeah. Danielle is safe, thank you. Now, Josh, when you came up here, did you see anyone? Did you hear anything out of the ordinary?
Josh: No, and the only reason I stayed this long is because I didn't want to leave her alone, but now that you're here, I really have to go.
[Fusionís phone rings]
[Answering machine beeps]
Erin's voice: Hi, you've reached Erin Lavery at Fusion. I'm either on another line or away from my desk, but if you leave your name and number, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
[Answering machine beeps]
[Music plays at ConFusion]
Jonathan: Erin? It's Jon. Hey. I don't know if you're still working or not, but call me when you get this. There are cops outside, again, and I just -- I just want to make sure you're ok. I've tried every number I have. There's -- there's nobody up there.
Amanda: Hmm. Well, that has to be a good thing. Whatever the cops are doing here, it has nothing to do with Fusion.
Officer: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Zach: Excuse me, gentlemen.
Officer: Pardon me.
Zach: We got to get through.
Derek: It's ok. So what brings you here, Slater?
[Colby answers Chandler Mansionís door when Josh pounds on it.]
Colby: You have to be kidding me.
Zach: So what do you think now? First Simone, now Erin? This wasn't an accident, and it wasn't suicide. These two women were killed, they were murdered. What do you see?
Derek: What I see is someone who was crying "murder" before there was any evidence to back it up. Do you care to explain how you knew this was a homicide before any of the rest of us?
Josh: Where is she? Where's Babe?
Babe: Where is the man that begged me for a second chance? And where is your wedding ring? I know that they gave it to you when you checked out of the hospital. How come you haven't put it back on?
J.R.: Why are you wearing yours? You know, I really don't understand you. Why are you so convinced that we can make this work? Is it that you're stubborn? Do you feel guilty? Or are you just sacrificing yourself for the good of our son?
Babe: Because I love you. It's as simple as that, and I believe with everything inside of me that we can get through this with our marriage intact. We can still live out our vows.
Josh: Where is she, Colby? Where is Babe?
Colby: You're seriously high.
Josh: I'm not leaving till I see her.
Colby: What are you doing here, weirdo? You want to give my brother a stroke? Get out! Get out of my house.
Josh: I'm going to tear this place apart.
Colby: Come on!
Colby: Get out now!
Adam: What the hell are you doing here?
Josh: Where's Babe? I want to see her.
Jonathan: Erin? Kendall? Hey, hey, hey. Where is everybody?
[In Fusionís office, Jonathan picks up and admires a framed photo of Fusionís women:† Erin, Kendall, Simone, Dani, and Babe.]
Jonathan: Hmm, hmm, hmm. Hey, hey, hey. Hey, wait a minute. What's going -- what's going on?
CSI Investigator: Just stay put if you know what's good for you.
[Jonathan follows the investigator to the rooftop.]
Babe: I know that it's not too late. I know that we can get back what we had. We can be a happy family again, and I know that you're not convinced, but please don't close the door on us. Just let it play out.
J.R.: When I apologized, I begged you to take me back. I cut out alcohol as part of the deal. And I did it to show you how much I meant it. I kept that promise, too, till I found out you were cheating on me. Are you ready to do the same? Are you willing to cut Josh out of your life 100%?
Babe: Yes. Josh knows that my future --
Josh: I need to talk to Babe.
Babe: Is with you. I --
Adam: No, you need to get the hell out of my house.
Colby: I already told him, Daddy. Babe is dead as far as he's concerned. No way I'm letting you --
Krystal: I think it's best if you leave.
Josh: Not until I see her, not until I know that she's ok.
J.R.: What the hell is going on out there?
Krystal: Why wouldn't she be?
Babe: Mama, is everything ok?
[Jonathan arrives on the roof and sees his dead sister.]
Josh: Babe. Babe. Thank God.
Babe: What is going on? What are you doing here?
Josh: I had to make sure you were ok.
Adam: You must have a death wish, Madden. Get the hell out of my house before I break every bone in your body!
Krystal: Calm down, calm down.
Colby: Are you ok? Look what you did to my brother, you jerk.
Babe: Ok, you need to go now.
Josh: Look, the only reason I'm here, Babe, is because I was worried about you.
Josh: Something terrible went down at Fusion.
Jonathan: Erin? Hey. Hey -- let go of me!
Officer: Take it easy.
Jonathan: Let go of me! That's my sister! Let go of me.
Zach: Jonathan --
Derek: It's a crime scene.
Jonathan: Erin -- Erin, hey, hey. Hey. Hi, it's me. Hey, it's John. Erin? Erin, hey, you can wake up now.
Zach: Jonathan, I'm so sorry.
Jonathan: You got to do something. Do something. Call -- call a doctor. Call a doctor. She -- she needs an ambulance. You got to call a doctor right now!
Derek: It's -- it's too late.
Jonathan: No, it's -- hey, no, it's not. No, it's not. It's not too late. She just needs a doctor. Somebody -- somebody needs to do something here, that's all. Can't you just -- come here. Come here. She just needs a doctor, you guys, that's all. She just needs a doctor. It's not too late. It's not too late.
Josh: I found Erin almost the exact same way you found Simone. The flower, the ribbon -- this wasn't an accident, this was deliberate. I started to worry about Kendall, Bianca, Dani, you. I tried to call here to find out if you were ok, but Colby wouldn't give me a straight answer, so I had to come here to see for myself if you were all right.
J.R.: Get out.
Josh: Don't you get it? Your wife is in danger! Someone is killing the women of Fusion.
Bianca: Zarf! What -- what are you doing here?
Zarf: Thinking very naughty thoughts.
Bianca: What did you do, follow me here?
Zarf: I am a celebrity, Bianca. I don't stalk people. They stalk me.
Bianca: Uh-uh. Don't even try to play this off as a coincidence.
Zarf: Oh, God, no. I pulled out all the stops tracking you down. I had to. I couldn't wait a moment longer. For you.
Bianca: Oh, my God. That's beautiful. Wait, how -- how did you know?
Zarf: Kaleidoscopes are your thing. Your vibrations scream creative soul. Even if, in your waking life, you are a prisoner of enterprise.
Bianca: I -- it was a -- I -- I hate to bust your vibrations --
Zarf: Your vibrations.
Bianca: But I'm actually really good at making money.
Zarf: Another reason we're perfect for each other. I was a multimillionaire at 19. The difference is I've never allowed myself to get bogged down by riches.
Bianca: And I have?
Zarf: You -- ahem -- my beautiful Bianca, are stuck in the land of the way things are. And you belong in the land of the way things ought to be. So now, whenever you peer into this, you will be stirred by a sense of possibility.
Jonathan: Hey, hey. You remember when we were little kids, and you used to have -- you used to have your tea parties to distract Dad to keep him from hurting me? You took such good care of me. You did. You looked after me. And that's what I'm going to do for you right now. Ok? I'm going to take really good care of you, Erin. Ok? So just -- you don't have anything to be scared of. All right? Because I'm here. And I'm not going anywhere.
[As Jonathan cradles Erinís body, Zach meets Ryan downstairs and leads him to the roof.]
Jonathan: It's going to be all right. Hey, hey, look. Look, Ryanís here. Ryan's here. Ryan's here. He'll take care of everything, like he always does. All right? All right, Erin? Ryan -- Ryan -- Ryan, they won't call for an ambulance. I promised we'd help her. Ryan, I promised Erin we'd help her. They're -- they're not doing anything. We have to call for an ambulance, ok? They -- they all think she's dead. But our sister didn't die. Tell them, Ryan. Ryan, tell them. Tell them that our sister didn't die. It's going to be all right. It's going to be all right.
Adam: No one is going to let anything happen to Babe. And we don't need your warnings or your threats.
Babe: Please, just go.
Josh: Take care of her.
Krystal: Babe -- Babe, honey, are you all right?
Babe: She's really gone?
Colby: There's a -- there's a murderer on the loose.
Adam: Let's have this discussion in the parlor. J.R. needs his rest.
Krystal: Let's go, honey. Come on, it's all right.
J.R.: See what needs to be done for Erin, and do it.
Adam: Yeah. Try to get some sleep, son.
J.R.: Erin, Simone -- oh, God, Babe. Oh.
Ryan: She's gone, Jonathan. Erin is gone.
Jonathan: She -- no, she's not really --
Ryan: Let's go home, Jonathan.
Jonathan: I'm not -- I'm not going anywhere, Ryan. It's freezing up here, and she doesn't even have a blanket. No, I'm not -- I'm not -- I'm not going to leave Erin up here alone.
Ryan: Jonathan -- Erin is dead.
Jonathan: You be careful with her. All right? You be careful with her.
[Erin is zipped into a body bag, placed on a stretcher, and carried off.]
Ryan: Come on. Come on. Come on. It's ok. Someone is going to pay for this.
Annie: I'm sorry we kept you waiting.
Kendall: Oh, that's ok.
Annie: I'm -- ahem -- I'm so sorry about Simone. Ryan said she was a crackup, a really close friend of yours. It's so sad how she died. I --
Kendall: It -- it was an accident. She didn't kill herself.
Annie: No, no, I know. I didn't -- I didn't mean to imply that she did. I just meant to die alone and so young, I -- oh, I'm sorry. I'll shut up now. New subject.
Kendall: Have you ever thought about finding Emmaís biological father?
Annie: Wow -- really new subject.
Kendall: Well, I just thought maybe -- I mean, wasn't there ever a time where you wanted to know who he was?
Annie: It's actually funny you said that. Ryan actually asked me the same thing.
Kendall: Ryan wants you to find out who Emmaís father is?
Annie: No. I mean, he didn't -- he didn't say that, he just asked me how I felt about it and offered to help me track him down. But I -- I told him I don't want to know.
Kendall: That's -- yeah, it's probably better that way.
Annie: Yeah. Yeah. They're called anonymous sperm donors for a reason, you know? Most of these men would probably be horrified to have some woman knocking at their door years after the fact, being, like, "Hey, meet your kid."
Kendall: Yeah, can you imagine?
Annie: No. And neither could Ryan. He jokes about bracing for the future college tuitions of the children his donations created, but I doubt he would really be laughing if one of them were to actually show up.
Kendall: Well, I don't think you should ever find out. Ever.
Annie: Of course, if Ryan hadn't been a sperm donor, Spike might never have been born.
Kendall: Has Ryan told you how we got Spike?
Annie: Not every detail, no.
Kendall: Well, it's a long, crazy story. But I'm convinced that fate was definitely involved. I think that Ryan and I were destined to be Spike's mom and dad.
Annie: Can I ask you something?
Annie: What made you choose Zach over Ryan?
Zarf: What is your happiest childhood memory?
Bianca: Probably riding horses at Wildwind. It's a -- an estate here in town.
Zarf: What is your most painful memory?
Bianca: From when I was little?
Bianca: Being told that my daughter was dead.
Zarf: What was your most precious memory?
Bianca: The moment she was placed back in my arms again, very much alive and back where she belonged.
Zarf: Any phobias? What's your greatest passion?
Bianca: What is this?
Zarf: I want to know everything about you.
Bianca: Why don't you just read my vibrations? What do they tell you?
Zarf: Does it bother you that I want to know your every waking thought? Does it scare you that I've fallen madly in love with you, and I believe that our lives are fated to be intertwined? You won't hide from me, will you? Run away to avoid my advances?
Bianca: No, I wonít. I -- for some crazy reason -- and it is crazy -- I'm not scared by you, and I'm not intimidated by you. And I think that you're outrageous and fun, and I find myself more intrigued by you every time I see you.
Zarf: What about me intrigues you the most?
Bianca: I want to know what you're hiding.
Kendall: Zach and I, we just -- we have this connection that I've never had with any other man. He is the one.
Annie: And you're confident about the choice you made? Staying married to Zach and keeping Ryan as a close friend?
Kendall: Yeah, not a doubt in my mind.
Annie: I'm falling in love with Ryan.
[Jonathan goes on a rampage at ConFusion.]
Ryan: Jonathan -- Jonathan --
Jonathan: Who did it? Who did it, huh? Huh? Was it you?
Man: Dude --
Ryan: Let's go --
Jonathan: Who did it?
Ryan: Let's go home, let's go --
Jonathan: Who did it? Who was it? Was it -- huh? Was it you?
Ryan: Whoa --
Jonathan: Was it you?
Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Jonathan: Who did it?
Babe: I need you, J.R. Please, I need you so badly.
[Babe cries next to J.R. as he pretends to sleep, resisting the urge to reach out to her.]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Kendall (to Annie): I thought for sure that Ryan would never get over Greenlee.
Annie: You think he still hasnít.
Aidan (to Zach and Di): Fusion has a serial killer.
Zarf (to Bianca): I want to kiss you again.
Bianca: Eyes closed?
Ryan: Bianca, where are you?
Bianca: At the boathouse, Ryan. Why, what's wrong?
Ryan: I'm on my way.
