Kendall: You are Emma's father. You have to understand, Ryan. You have to understand why I didn't say anything.

Ryan: Come on.

Kendall: You got to understand, Ryan.

Zach: Let her go!

Josh: Hey -- no, no, no. You stay put until that drug wears off. There's a lot more truth to tell.

Ryan: No one else comes in here. No one.

[Ryan takes Kendall into another room]

Ryan: Emma. Emma. And you've known all this time that she was mine, and you never told me.

Kendall: Damn right I didn't.

Ryan: What is wrong with you?

Kendall: Ok, I better hear an apology right now.

Adam: Good. I thought you'd gone to bed.

J.R.: There's too much to think about.

Adam: Babe interrupted our conversation.

J.R.: You know what? Let's just finish that tomorrow, ok?

Adam: Did you get any more ammunition?

[Doorbell rings]

Adam: Oh.

J.R.: You have something on the killer?

Jamie: We needs to see Babe.

Babe: What are you doing here?

Zoe: Oh. They released me tonight.

Babe: Oh, come in.

Zoe: The press were swarming the police station, and they were all over the Valley Inn.

Babe: Oh, I'm so glad you came.

Zoe: I didn't know where else to go.

Babe: How did you even get past security?

Zoe: Oh, they were distracted a few minutes ago. They were checking out some men in a car. I managed to slip through the gates. I shouldn't have come.

Babe: No, no, no, you get here. What are best girlfriends for?

Zoe: Oh. Thank you.

Babe: You know, I have an idea. How about a long, hot soak in lemon ginger bath salts, guaranteed to soothe and relax?

Zoe: That sounds wonderful.

Adam: Babe? Are you still up?

Babe: Uh -- yeah, just a sec! Come. Hide. Ahem. Hi. I just -- I was just about to take a bath.

Adam: Tad and Jamie are downstairs.

Babe: Is it Kendall? Is she ok?

Adam: Well, no, no one's been hurt. They just need to ask you some questions.

Babe: Ok. I'll be right down.

Adam: All right.

Babe: Ok, you stay here, and you take your bath. I'll be back as soon as I can.

[Colby spies on Babe's room]

Babe: This can't be good news.

Tad: Babe, when was the last time you saw your father?

Jamie: He called or he wrote?

Babe: David and I aren't exactly pen pals. We haven't had any contact since he left.

J.R.: Or said he did.

Babe: What? What --

Jamie: No, he left. The question is --

Tad: Is he back?

Babe: Why would he be? No one wants David around.

J.R.: Yeah. Maybe that's why he's killing all the women in town one by one.

Annie: Hey -- oh, if you drink any more water, you are going to float out of bed.

Rachael: She asked for another story.

Annie: Oh. Well, I'll tuck her back in. Why don't you go get dinner. Come on, you, back to sleep.

Rachael: She said she can't go back to sleep.

Annie: Why not, sweetheart?

Rachael: She's waiting for someone.

Annie: Oh.

Rachael: Hmm.

Annie: Ryan.

Emma: Ryan and I say prayers together.

Annie: Oh -- sweetheart, that is so, so nice, but we don't know when Ryan's coming back. So how about I say your prayers with you, and then it's off to slumber land? Hmm? Ok, come on. Let's go.

Emma: I love you, Spike.

Ryan: You want an apology from me? I got to be losing my mind.

Kendall: Uh -- you've already lost it. You drugged my husband. You drugged him --

Ryan: Excuse me for trying to save some lives, Kendall. Believe me, Zach is fine -- Josh is a doctor. You lied to me.

Kendall: No, I didn't lie. I didn't.

Ryan: What, do you want to play games with me now? Is that what you want to do?

Kendall: I couldn't tell you.

Ryan: You couldn't tell me that I had a daughter in this world?

Kendall: No, I couldn't. You weren't supposed to find out. And if you and -- and Josh hadn't have drugged Zach, you never would've found out.

Ryan: You honestly believe this was the right thing to do?

Kendall: Yes, I know it was. How in the hell did you get Josh to help you ambush my husband anyway?

Ryan: That's not important right now.

Kendall: What did you inject him with, Ryan? Because if he's hurt, or if there's side effects, I will go after you.

Ryan: Enough about Zach! Enough! How long have you known Emma was mine? How long?

Kendall: What's the difference?

Ryan: Right around -- right around Thanksgiving, you were working me over to find out how serious I was with Annie. You were desperate --

Kendall: No, I wasn't. I was not desperate.

Ryan: To pin down how much of a relationship it was. You were. You've known since then. Right around David Hayward, when he left town, you've known since then, and you never told me.

Kendall: You didn't want to know.

Ryan: Excuse me?

Kendall: You told me that you made a sperm donation anonymously. Anonymously -- you did it for money! You didn't want to be a father!

Ryan: But Emma -- Emma's here. Like, I know her.

Kendall: Oh.

Ryan: We're close.

Kendall: Ryan, listen to me. You -- you wanted nothing to do with any of those children. You didn't want to know who they were, where they were. You wanted nothing to do with any of them.

Ryan: You had to know this was different.

Kendall: And Annie. Annie told me she never wanted to know who Emma's father was. She made a big deal out of it. So I -- I had to keep the information to myself.

Ryan: No, don't. Don't act as if you were being noble, Kendall. Don't do that.

Kendall: I had to honor both of your wishes. What else did you want me to do? Come on. For Godís sakes, Ryan, say something.

Ryan: I have nothing to say to you.

Kendall: I can hear your brain ticking away.

Ryan: All right. I'm wondering how the hell I ever loved you.

Zach: Get out of my way.

Josh: Yeah?

Zach: Huh. You did this to me.

Josh: Well, somebody had to find the truth.

Zach: I need to get to Kendall.

Josh: You think Ryan's going to hurt her?

Zach: No.

Josh: You think he has a right to be mad at her?

Zach: Yes.

Josh: Then let him go off on her for a while. You said you didn't kill Greg Madden.

Zach: That's what I said.

Josh: Was it the truth?

Zach: That's what this drug's supposed to do, isn't it?

Josh: So you didn't kill Greg Madden?

Zach: No.

Josh: Well, what was that you said about his suffering -- you didn't bleed for it?

Zach: I don't remember what I said.

Josh: Yeah, but you know what you meant. Did you -- did you feel anything? Did you -- did you feel anything for his suffering?

Zach: Agh. Whew. I didn't care. He was being tortured, and I didn't care.

Josh: You knew? You knew he was in that casket all along?

Zach: Yeah.

Josh: Being tormented?

Zach: Uh-huh.

Josh: And you didn't do anything to stop it?

Zach: No. No, I didn't. I knew he was being tortured, and I didn't do anything, because he deserved it.

Josh: You know who did this? You know who was responsible for Greg's death?

Tad: Babe, you got to remember that your father has had it in for Zach since long before Slater took him on for protecting Dixie. It was Zach that humiliated your father over Maria Grey.

Babe: I knew that Zoe didn't do it, but David?

Jamie: We always expected Kendall to be the last target.

Tad: And all the other Fusion girls would be taken out first -- but the killer's skipping over you.

J.R.: The killer's going after Kendall.

Adam: Hayward is nuts, but he's not going to kill his own daughter.

Babe: No, that's not it. It's just that the killer can't get to me -- you saw all the security outside.

Jamie: Zach Slater has just as many guards on Kendall.

Tad: We can't ignore the fact that somebody is letting you live.

Jamie: And, Babe, your father hates just about everybody in town.

Tad: Ryan, Derek Frye, Zach -- all of us but you.

J.R.: And he's using a drug to kill.

Adam: Hayward's weapon of choice.

Babe: Ok, but a few hours ago, you were all convinced that the killer was behind bars.

Jamie: We hoped he was -- or, she was.

Tad: Zach decided to do some looking on his own. He got locked in a warehouse --

Jamie: By the killer.

Tad: We assume. We just found a message that the killer left for Zach in the same warehouse. In any case, all this happened before Zoe was released. It couldn't have been done from a jail cell.

Jamie: But David -- David could be anywhere.

Colby: Ok. Say "Cheese," Josh!

[Colby barges into Babe's room with a camera]

Colby: Oh -- oh, God, I'm sorry. I thought you were Josh.

Zoe: No, no, please, don't be afraid.

Colby: No, I'll get out.

Zoe: No, no, no, don't tell. Babe didn't know. I snuck in. I didn't hurt anyone or kill anyone. The police -- they released me tonight. Please don't get Babe in trouble with your father or her husband. She doesn't deserve it. Please --

Colby: They let you go?

Zoe: I'm begging you. Yes. Call them, call the police station.

Colby: No, no, no. I believe you. Hey -- I get it, remember?

Zoe: You were very PC at my arrest, but --

Colby: I'm down with the whole trans thing. After they dragged you away, I listened to every one of your songs. You've been showing us who you really are all along. You are completely gorgeous.

Zoe: And you are -- amazing. Uh -- oh, and kind. Oh, God, look at me.

Colby: Oh, come on, sit down.

Zoe: Oh.

Colby: Let's see. Good color for you, don't you think?

[Zoe and Colby giggle]

Babe: David wouldn't kill Simone. He had nothing against her.

Tad: But Simone and I were very close.

Adam: Right there -- revenge against Tad.

Babe: There are more direct ways to get back at Tad and -- and Joe -- all the Martins.

Jamie: Well, I -- I know it's a long shot, but we have to explore every possibility.

Adam: Has anybody heard from David in -- in any way?

Babe: No. No calls, no e-mails, nothing since he left.

Tad: Has Krystal heard from him?

Adam: No, no, no. She -- she would've told me.

Babe: She hasn't said anything.

J.R.: This is classic David Hayward. He says his good-byes, he -- he takes off, he comes back to town and starts decimating.

Babe: If it is David, I'm sorry, I don't know anything that can help you.

Jamie: I'm sorry, Babe, we just had to ask.

Tad: We wanted to make sure you were up to speed.

Babe: Thanks.

J.R.: Hey, you sure you don't want to stick around?

Babe: I'll be ok. Good night.

Kendall: How can you say that to me?

Ryan: How could I love someone that would play me that way?

Kendall: I didn't. I didn't, Ryan. Annie was very clear. She did not want to know who Emma's father was, and you didn't want to know the children that you fathered.

Ryan: The fact that I was dating Annie and that I adore Emma -- that didn't factor in at all?

Kendall: I was honoring your wishes -- yours and Annie's.

Ryan: No. No, you were trying to control my life again -- determine who I see, who I like, who I love -- whatever. You just -- you just have to be in charge.

Kendall: You're Spike's father. That's all this was about.

Ryan: No, no, this was about you and your need to interfere, to lie, and to manipulate.

Kendall: Oh, ok. Well, you've always been so pure and blameless.

Ryan: You know what? You wanted Zach, and you got him. But guess what -- I get to have my own life, too.

Kendall: Yeah -- with a ready-make mother and child thrown in?

Ryan: If I want them, yes.

Kendall: No, Ryan. No, you don't understand, Ryan.

Ryan: I do understand, Kendall, that this is -- this is about you, and you want it all, and to hell with the pain that it causes everybody else.

Kendall: No, Ryan, I was trying to spare you.

Ryan: "Spare" -- she's my child, my flesh and blood. Who asked you to?

Kendall: I thought it was for the best.

Ryan: How many conversations have we had about being honest with each other since Spike was born? I mean, you and I -- we agreed to be honest with each other, so that we could be the best parents we could be to our son. I should've known that you couldn't do it.

Kendall: Ok, would you stop making this sound so final, please?

Ryan: At least you're Zach's problem now, not mine. I mean, he's as into secrets as you are.

Zach: Stop asking me.

Josh: I want to know who killed Greg Madden. Do you know who did it?

Zach: Yes.

Josh: You tell me. I need to know, Zach.

Zach: Oh, God, let it go.

Josh: We're talking about the man who raised me.

Zach: You were his experiment! Let it go!

Josh: You better tell me right now!

Zach: You were brought into this world to stand in awe of him, to walk in his footsteps -- greater glory to your father.

Josh: You have no idea what it was like between me and my father.

Zach: No, I do know, Josh, I do know, because I lived it, you little punk. I lived it. Let it go!

Josh: You know who did this. You better tell me -- who did this?

Zach: Tad Martin. Tad Martin.

[Colby applies eye make-up to Zoe]

Colby: Hmm -- you're a goddess.

Babe: Damn it, Colby!

Zoe: Is everything all right?

Babe: I -- you tell me.

Colby: I'm not ratting you out, Babe -- for her, not you.

Babe: Well. What did you do to her?

Zoe: It's what she did for me.

Babe: You do look really pretty.

Zoe: Thank you -- and Colby. You want me to go?

Babe: No. No, I really need a friend right now.

Zoe: I'd do anything for you. You know that.

Babe: Then just hug me.

Zoe: Oh.

J.R.: Hayward won't kill Babe. But my mom?

Tad: It's true -- Dixie could be in danger.

J.R.: Be a great way to stick it to you and me.

Jamie: We'll put a bodyguard on her.

Adam: My security people could handle that.

Tad: Well, the good news is if the killer is David, at least Babe and Krystal are safe.

Adam: Babe is anyway.

J.R.: Hayward wouldn't kill anybody that was close to Babe -- not her mother or her son anyway.

Adam: But we're a different story. What's your plan?

J.R.: How do we nail Hayward?

Tad: Aidan's out there trying to get a fix on him.

Jamie: Apparently, David landed in Indonesia and then moved inland.

Tad: Which is making tracking his movements a lot more difficult.

Jamie: But if he left, if he's back in Pine Valley --

Tad: If he's back in Pine Valley, we'll know about it soon.

Josh: Tad? Tad's my -- Tad's my uncle.

Zach: Yep. You get to keep your dirty laundry in the family -- isn't that special?

Josh: Tad killed Greg Madden?

Zach: Uh-huh. And the world owes him for it. Although, he didn't do it on purpose. It was an accident.

Josh: And you don't give a damn?

Zach: No, I don't. But Tad needed answers -- for himself, for Dixie -- because your daddy stole his little girl. Agh.

[Zach groans]

Josh: What do I do now?

Zach: I don't know, son. But I can tell you what you don't do. Don't lie to Kendall, and don't mourn for him, because he wasn't a father to you. You were his living, breathing award to himself, proof of his brilliance. Once you became your own person, he turned on you. Man. Sometimes death is the only way out -- one way or another. So be grateful, huh? Hey -- don't do it. Don't pick up where he left off. Don't give him that power. Don't destroy your family, don't destroy your life. There's been enough suffering. Let it be.

Kendall: You're Spike's father.

Ryan: Yes, I am. And you think that I would desert him for my other child -- that's what you think.

Kendall: We were just fine as we were, Ryan.

Ryan: No. No, no, no. You were just fine -- and I guess that's all that matters.

Kendall: I wasn't being selfish.

Ryan: Just save it.

Kendall: No, I was trying to protect! I was protecting.

Ryan: Who? Who? Who, Kendall? Who?

Kendall: Our son, Ryan.

Ryan: From what? From me? From Emma? Annie?

Kendall: Ok. So I'm not very generous, all right? I have a hard time sharing.

Ryan: So you and Spike wanted me to yourselves 100%? Is that what this is?

Kendall: No, not me. Ok, look, you're fond of Emma.

Ryan: Yes, I am very fond.

Kendall: Great, but you're not responsible for her.

Ryan: Well, I am now, Kendall. She's my daughter.

Kendall: You're not responsible for her mother, either. I mean, this doesn't mean instant family.

Ryan: Whatever it means is up to me, not you.

Kendall: All right, listen to me, it was science, Ryan. There was no caring involved, there was no love. Annie wanted a baby with another man. You were just some random donor.

Ryan: Not random anymore, am I?

Kendall: And then Annie? I mean, come on, Ryan, she just got rid of one husband -- a man that she gave her heart to and found out he was a complete, freaky pervert. I mean, she had to run from him. She had to hide her child from him. Who knows how long it'll take before she's ready to have another relationship with any man? And then to share her daughter, her precious little girl? Good luck hitting Annie with this one. Am I wrong? You and Annie are closer than I thought?

Ryan: We're dating, Kendall. We'll see where it goes.

Kendall: Ok. So you're not sleeping together, you're not in love. So what do you even have in common?

Ryan: Well, there's Emma.

Kendall: Right, ok. And with Annie almost losing her how many times? How is she going to deal with someone wanting to hang on to her daughter, sharing her daughter?

Ryan: However she wants, Kendall.

Kendall: Right. Ryan, Annie is extremely grateful for everything that you've done for her. Now, when she finds out that you're Emma's father, she can't exactly tell you to go to hell. I mean, she's stuck with you whether she wants to be or not. And if she doesn't freak out or run away, then she's going to feel like she owes you a life with Emma -- even if it's the last thing that she wants. So before you go off on me, and you go all crazy on me, think about what this is going to do to her. You do owe me and Zach an apology. And when you finally decide to make it, don't expect us to accept it.

Emma: Ooh.

Annie: I think they're both in for the night. I'm going to go see what's keeping Ryan.

Rachael: Ok.

Josh: It was Tad.

Zach: He didn't want your father dead, he wanted information, he didn't get it.

[Josh picks up Amelia Cambias' love letters and leaves]

Zach: Hey, put those down. Those belong to my mom! Josh!

[Zach groans]

Annie: Zach, have you seen Ryan?

Zach: Yes, I've seen Ryan.

Annie: Can you tell me where he is?

Zach: Somewhere with Kendall.

Annie: Whoa, whoa, whoa! What's the -- what's the matter?

Zach: Oh, it's ok, I'm drugged.

Annie: What? I'll call 911!

Zach: No! You don't call anybody, it's wearing off. I have to learn more.

Annie: About?

Zach: About me! Question me.

Annie: I -- I don't understand what --

Zach: Ask me!

Annie: About what?

Zach: About the night my mother died. Ask me!

Babe: David has done horrible things.

Zoe: Oh. But he's still your father.

Babe: But Simone and Erin, and attacking Dani ? He couldn't, no -- he couldn't do that, right? I mean, if -- if he did -- oh, God. How -- how could I even live here? How could I live anywhere, knowing that my father was a murderer?

Zoe: Oh, five minutes ago I was the guilty party. Now they've found someone else. And in ten minutes they might be on to someone entirely new.

Babe: God. I doubt it.

Zoe: Hmm. Stay tuned, you never know.

Babe: If David is guilty -- I can't live with that, Zoe. I just can't.

Adam: Until I know if David's behind this, I'm vamping up security. That lunatic was at my front gate.

Jamie: Well, you're looking better. How you feeling?

J.R.: PT is helping. I can't wait to get rid of this chair permanently.

Jamie: I'm actually talking about Babe. If Zoe's in the clear, Babe was right. She was protecting an innocent person and not putting Little Adam at risk.

J.R.: Babe is lying and telling secrets.

Jamie: And you're not?

J.R.: I didn't have a choice.

Jamie: Are you still going to divorce her?

J.R.: I don't know. I honestly don't know.

Ryan: Where's -- um -- where's Annie?

Rachael: Looking for you.

[Emma whispers]

Emma: Ryan!

Ryan: Hi. Hey, sleepyhead. How you doing? How is everything?

Emma: I said my prayers.

Ryan: You did, did you? What'd you pray for?

Emma: I prayed for Spike to be my baby brother.

Annie: I'll -- I'll get someone --

Zach: No. This drug is making me tell the truth, and it's wearing off, so I need you to ask me.

Annie: About --

Zach: Ask me!

Annie: About your mother and the day she passed away?

Zach: Yes.

Annie: I don't -- um -- how did she die?

Zach: She fell, she had a bad fall. She fell off the balcony.

Annie: Well, where?

Zach: Our home.

Annie: Uh -- what -- what else can -- can you tell me about it? What do you remember?

Zach: Voices, loud voices.

Annie: Well, angry voices?

Zach: Yes. They were yelling, they kept yelling.

Annie: Who? Who was yelling?

Zach: I don't know. I'm sorry. I don't know. I don't know.

[Zach sighs]

Annie: It's ok. I won't leave you.

Zach: That's it.

Kendall: What are you doing with my husband? What are you doing with Zach?

Annie: Helping your husband.

Zach: It's all right.

Annie: But now that you're here, you can take over.

Kendall: Hey, are you ok?

Zach: That depends on you. I told Ryan.

J.R.: You know Mom really loves you?

Tad: And I love her, too. Look, don't worry, J.R., We'll look after her.

Jamie: We'll keep you posted on all developments.

J.R.: Thank you.

Tad: As soon as Aidan calls, we'll pass it along.

Adam: Hayward.

[Adam chuckles]

Adam: The only surprise is it took him this long to snap.

J.R.: Oh, and this is the good news? My father-in-law is a serial killer?

Adam: As long as Babeís daddy is out there slaughtering young women, it can only help you get full custody.

Babe: How could David ever do anything --

Zoe: Oh, you're drowning yourself in "maybes" and "what-ifs."

Babe: Oh.

Zoe: You have to stop it, Babe.

Babe: Hmm -- I can't. I just -- I can't stop it.

Zoe: Oh, yes, you can. You have to. How can I survive without you?

Babe: Hmm. You can't.

[Zoe giggles]

Zoe: No, I can't. Can't be done.

Babe: Hmm.

Zoe: So, you're about to pull yourself out of this funk.

Babe: Oh.

Zoe: Close your eyes. Close them.

Babe: Ok, they're closed. Hmm.

Zoe: I want you to envision yourself bathed in white light. Golden slumber kiss your eyes, smiles await you when you rise. Sleep, pretty baby, do not cry, and I will sing you a lullaby. Care is heavy therefore, sleep while I watch o'er you safe watch I'll keep. Sleep, pretty darling. Do not cry, and I will sing you a lullaby.

Zach: I told. It was a secret --

Kendall: Listen --

Zach: And --

Kendall: No, I know. I know what Josh and Ryan did to you.

Zach: The drug made me remember something. The R at the bottom of my mother's letters -- I know what it stands for -- "Raymond."

[Door closes]

Annie: Thanks, Rachael. I'll take it from here.

Rachael: Ok, thanks.

Annie: See you tomorrow.

Rachael: Mm-hmm.

Annie: I've been looking for you.

Ryan: Sorry about that.

Annie: Are you all right? Um -- I just left Zach Slater. He was so weird.

Ryan: Why? What -- what did he do?

Annie: He -- he said that he was drugged. He asked me to -- to a him questions about his -- his mother and how she died?

Ryan: Is that all?

Annie: Well, isn't that enough? Something's off. What aren't you telling me?

Ryan: Uh -- I'll explain it all later, all right? About -- about Zach -- it's just -- um -- agh. It's late. Why don't you get some sleep?

Annie: Ok, if -- if that's what you think.

Ryan: Everything's going to be fine.

Annie: Ok. Whatever you say.

Ryan: Just get some sleep. Ok? I'll see you later.

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

Zoe (to J.R.): Bet you don't walk in on this every day.

Josh (to Jamie): I know who killed Greg Madden. You don't back off, I'll share the name with the police.

Dixie (to Tad): Are you asking me on a date?

Zach (to Ryan): How does that feel, to be ambushed like that?

Annie (to Kendall): What new reason should I have for wanting to rip your head off?
