Adam: What the hell have you done to my wife? Sweetheart --
Krystal: Huh --
Adam: Can you hear me? Get your hands off of her!
Josh: She fainted. She'll be fine.
Krystal: Babe -- Babe's alive?
Babe: Erica? What are you doing here?
Erica: Sorry. I -- I didn't mean to wake you up. I -- I just saw this gorgeous bouquet of flowers in the hospital floral shop, and I thought that your room could use some brightening.
Babe: They're beautiful. Thank you. The casino gift shop sure does sell beautiful flowers. Josh told me everything.
Erica: I'm just hoping that he heard something, anything, about Kendall. I'm so worried about her.
Annie: Who told Emma this hat would fit Spike?
Di: Oh, oh.
Julia: Oh, Kathy asked me if she could borrow that to play dress-up for her tea party.
Annie: Ah -- three guesses who got dressed up.
Di: My, I've got to see this.
Annie: Oh, well, don't bother. They kicked me out. They said it was a tea party for kids only.
Annie: Yeah. The only reason they let Rachael stay is because she's their official videographer. It's actually great she's getting it on camera. Ryan and Kendall will love seeing it.
Di: I spoke to Aidan not too long ago. He says -- he hopes this will all be over soon.
Julia: Please, God.
Annie: Did he give any specifics?
Di: He plays things pretty close to the vest. He's that way with everything.
Julia: So are you. When are you finally going to tell him that you're in love with him?
Aidan: A dummy corp, three months after Cambias supposedly died.
J.R.: With blueprints to match Zach's house where he grew up.
Jamie: According to the broker's notes, the corporation that built this place won a bidding war with the Bureau of Land Management. They wanted to add the acreage to a place called --
Tad: "Red Rock Canyon" -- that's got to be it. 200,00 acres of national conservancy west of Vegas.
Ryan: National conservancy? That doesn't make any sense.
Man: I'm here to sell computers, gentlemen. Nowhere on the sign does it say "Internet Cafe. " You want to surf the web, get a library card.
Ryan: Sold. Yeah, everything you got. All of it, sold.
Man: Are you serious?
Tad: If he wanted to, he could buy your whole company.
Ryan: But right now, a woman's life is on the line, and we need some answers.
Tad: What can you tell us about Red Rock Canyon?
Alexander: Say good-bye to your wife, Alex.
Kendall: No. No! Please, please, please, stop this. Please, please -- Zach! Zach, the gun! The gun!
Alexander: You know you're going to have to keep your hand permanently on mine forever if you want to keep that dart away from Kendall's lovely neck! You're going to have to learn your lesson, Alex.
Kendall: Please, stop!
Alexander: One step closer, I shoot, and you die! You let go of that trigger, and she dies.
Zach: I'm right here, I'm not going anywhere.
Alexander: This was not the plan, Alex. Learn your damn lesson!
[Zach groans and falls down as his father shoots him in the hand.]
Kendall: No! No! No.
Zach: Lesson learned. Let Kendall go. I know how you feel.
Alexander: Knowing how I feel is hardly enough. You will be thoroughly punished.
Zach: All the women died because of me. All those women you killed died, because of me, and these were women that I respected, that I admired, and that I called friends! And if I had followed in your footsteps -- if I had become you -- those beautiful women would still be alive. It hasn't escaped me. And I'm going to have to live with that every day of my life. Don't you think that's punishment enough?
Erica: It is just torture for me not knowing where my daughter is, if she's ok.
Babe: Josh hasn't said anything to me about Kendall.
Erica: Josh is risking his medical license, you know that, bringing you here and hiding you out like this.
Babe: And I owe him so much for it.
Erica: Yes. Unfortunately, he may have put his sister in even greater danger than ever.
Babe: Josh is as worried about Kendall as you are, Erica. I'm worried about her, too. We all just want her home safe.
Erica: Thank you. Actually, you know what? You're right. This whole thing has been agony for all of us. Your whole family. I mean, J.R. -- I -- I have never seen J.R. like this. J.R. is bereft. I think we should call him, Babe. I think that we should let J.R. in on this. I mean, J.R. would be just -- just thrilled to know that you're alive.
Babe: No. No, no one else can know. No one.
Krystal: Babe, my baby doll, is alive.
Adam: Why does she keep saying that?
Josh: She may be delirious. Is she on any meds?
Adam: Prenatal vitamins. She's pregnant. What the hell are you doing in my house? I told you to stay out of here.
Josh: Do you want to come at me, or do you want me to help your wife? Now, go to the medicine cabinet. Bring -- bring me every prescription with her name on it.
Josh: Krystal, listen to me. You say a word about this. Not to Adam, not to anyone. I came here to take you to Babe. But for your daughter's sake, you have to keep this between us. Ok?
Di: Things are great right now. We have fun together, you know? You throw love in the mix and things get weird.
Di: Yeah, wuss. Ok, I'm a wuss. What?
Julia: Tell him.
Di: Listen, if he wants to know, he will ask. And if either one of you blows my cover, I will deny, deny, deny.
Julia and Annie: Wuss.
Di: Oh, well, look who's talking. Now, I don't see you and Jamie picking out china.
Julia: And you never will.
Annie: I thought you guys were serious.
Julia: I love him, and I've told him that, and he's told me back, which is, by the way, how it works, for future reference.
Di: Wait. Back up a second. "And you never will" -- what is that? You don't think you and Jamie are ever going to take the plunge?
Julia: Ok, I guess maybe I shouldn't say "never. " Let's -- let's just say it's highly unlikely. I've just learned to take life one day at a time, mm-hmm.
Di: In other words, we're both wusses.
Annie: Well -- ahem -- I have you both beat.
Ryan: I got the map.
Tad: Great. Listen, we've narrowed it down to a couple of properties in a place called --
Aidan: Red Rock Canyon.
Tad: You know about it? Do you know which house belongs to Cambias?
Aidan: On the south side. Our man has a thing for balconies.
Tad: Awesome. We'll see you there. Come on.
Jamie: My dad already knew about Red Rock?
Aidan: He and Ryan are on their way now.
J.R.: Well, let's go.
Aidan: Thanks for coming, boys. I got a job for you, a way you can make it up to your boss. There's two wannabe assassins in that closet. Guard them with your life. Don't lose them like you lost Kendall.
Alexander: No punishment is odious enough for you, Alexander. What you did to me was unforgivable. I raised you. Loved you. Tended to your every need. All I asked in return was your gratitude and obedience. But instead, you made me grieve you so deeply. I thought I'd soon follow you to the grave. Never have I felt such loss.
Zach: You didn't love me, Dad. You loved that I came from you, that I would be you.
Alexander: Every parent looks for themselves in their child. Our children make us immortal. Is that such a crime to admit that I wanted that from you?
Zach: Drop the gun, and you'll have it.
Alexander: You walked away from the perfect life I had planned for you. You turned your back on me. You did something unforgivable, destroyed a father's love! Stripped me of all the dreams I ever had for us! If I have become heartless, it's because you made me this way. Vengeance is all I had. So I embraced it. Finally found something you can't take away from me.
Sean: What the hell is your problem?
Colby: I am delivering forged notes for you at school, getting blasted with 100,000 questions from your teachers, and you're kicking back playing games?
Sean: Fine. I won't ask for your help anymore.
Colby: No -- why are you being this way?
Sean: Because I don't need you breathing down my neck, slamming me about skipping school. Well, you're off the hook, Colby, so leave me the hell alone.
Adam: All I could find were prenatal vitamins.
Krystal: I'm -- I'm fine, Adam.
Adam: Sweetheart, you fainted.
Krystal: I -- I just got up too fast. I -- I felt a little dizzy, that's all.
Adam: Yeah, well, the things you were saying --
Krystal: About Babe?
Krystal: Yeah, well, she just -- she flashed in my mind when I was coming to. I guess I was just really out of it. I --
Adam: Are you sure she's ok?
Josh: Yeah, her pulse is fine. I don't see any signs of distress.
Adam: Fine, fine -- then get the hell out of my house.
Krystal: No, no, no, no, Adam, Adam -- Josh came to see me because he misses Babe, too, so --
Krystal: We're going to go to the cemetery to see Babe.
Adam: Sweetheart, that's ridiculous. You just -- you just fainted. You're still weak.
Krystal: No --
Adam: You're eight months pregnant.
Krystal: Adam -- Adam, honey, I'm fine now, really. Besides, I'll -- I'll be with a doctor. Look, please, Adam, I -- I need to talk to Josh, ok? I really think it's going to help us both. So we're going to go visit my daughter, and that's all there is to it. Ok?
Babe: As far as J.R. is concerned, I'm staying dead. Only Mama can know the truth.
Erica: Krystal knows?
Babe: Josh went to go tell her.
Erica: Babe, tell me something. How long do you intend on staying hidden out like this? I mean, once the killer is caught, then what happens?
Babe: I'll think about it then.
Erica: Well, surely you've thought about it.
Babe: The only thing that I've thought about is seeing my mama and making sure my son is ok.
Erica: I see. Well, that must be very nice. It must be very nice for your mother to be able to put her arms around you and know that you are alive, that you are safe. I only hope I have that same opportunity with Kendall.
Kendall: Oh -- you are not responsible for any of this, Zach. Remember that.
Zach: Let Kendall go. Come on, this is between you and me. It has nothing to do with her. She didn't do anything wrong. You can kill me if you want --
Kendall: No -- no, no!
Zach: Let my wife live, ok?
Alexander: I would have considered setting Kendall free until you wrestled this thing from my hands. You wanted to control your wife's fate? Well, now you do. Regretting your decision now, Alex? But if I kill you while you're holding it, you'll have to let go, and into Kendall's bloodstream goes that drug, straight into her heart. You die, Kendall dies, too.
Zach: And then what, Dad? You kill me, what are you going to do then? That's everything you lived for. And then no more vengeance. Nothing left.
Alexander: Huh, on the contrary. The future looks very bright for your old man. Too bad you won't be around to see it.
Zach: Yeah? What are you going to do?
Alexander: I'm still very much impressed with the sort of man that Ryan is at his core.
Zach: You're going to make him your son?
Alexander: No, that would never work. But with the help of this beautiful woman that you and he love so dearly -- you've given me hope again, Kendall. If ever there was a woman worthy of bearing the Cambias progeny, it's you. It's a shame that you have to die.
Zach: I told you I will take what's coming to me. Let her go. Take that thing off her neck.
Alexander: Thanks to you, I'll still be able to live out my dream. I'll still have Cambias.
Kendall: No. No, not Miranda. No!
Alexander: Michael's spawn? Oh, no. I'm thinking of a very strong and handsome little boy we all know and love.
Kendall: No, no! My God, no!
Zach: Don't you even think it.
Alexander: I'm sorry to see you go, Kendall, but at least you know that your progeny will be well provided for.
Kendall: You stay the hell away from my son.
Alexander: Oh, yes. I'm going to take your son from Ryan and raise him as my own.
Barbara: Sean -- Sean, who's your pretty friend?
Colby: Hey, I'm Colby Chandler.
Barbara: Colby Chandler -- you must be Adam's daughter. Nice to meet you. I am Barbara Montgomery, Sean's mother. I used to work for your dad many moons ago.
Colby: Oh, wow, I never knew that.
Barbara: Sean, isn't it time to get ready to go to school? I can pack you a lunch if you'd like.
Erica: You just said yourself, you have so much to be grateful to Josh for. For saving your life. For hiding you. I mean, Josh really went all out to create this -- this hospital room out of nowhere.
Babe: But it wasn't just Josh. Zach and Kendall, Jeff -- your husband, Jack -- they all had a hand in it.
Erica: Yes, I know that. But it was Josh who's been with you day and night. He's been by your side. It's Josh who ultimately is --
Babe: You want to know if Josh and I have a future? More than just friends?
Erica: Do you?
Babe: Like I said before, the only thing I can think about right now is seeing my mama and my son.
Krystal: Oh. Oh, Babe --
Babe: Mama? I'm ok, I'm alive.
Krystal: It's really you? My God -- you're alive! You're alive! Oh.
Babe: I'm ok. I'm right here. Oh, I hate that they had to do that to you.
Krystal: No, no, no, sweetheart, they had to. They had to make everybody believe that you were dead to keep you safe.
Babe: You must have just gone crazy.
Krystal: Oh -- I'm not mad. I'm not mad. I'm dancing. I got my sweet baby doll back.
Erica: Well, what? I knew you were coming back. I -- I had to talk to you. I had to find out if you had any news about Kendall. I mean, I've been worried sick about her.
Josh: Well, so have I, but unfortunately, I haven't heard anything. Are you sure that's the only reason why you came here?
Erica: Look, Josh, you know that if I were asked to handpick a woman for you to spend the rest of your life with, that Babe Chandler wouldn't even make the prelims.
Josh: Thought so.
Erica: No, please let me finish. Every nerve in my body is twitching, because I have to say this. But there's no getting around it. I'm trying to accept Babe Chandler. I'm trying, because I know how much you love her. And I know if I don't accept her, that I could lose you. And I can't risk that. I may have lost one child already.
Kendall: I told you to stay the hell away from my son, you bastard. Ryan will kill you before you lay a hand on Spike.
Alexander: Ryan has no more power over me than you do! Back on your knees.
Kendall: No, don't -- don't, Zach! Don't give him one damn thing. Don't.
Alexander: Do it. When will you learn? There are consequences to your actions. You were supposed to let go of that trigger. You would kill the woman you love and live with that for the rest of your life, however short that might be. Only then, might you realize what you've done to me. But no more of that. I will kill Kendall, and you'll watch her die, knowing that I always win.
[When Alexander turns to shoot Kendall, Zach removes a knife from his lower leg and throws it, knocking the gun out of his father's hand. After kicking the gun out of the way, Zach removes the contraption around Kendall's neck and finally releases the button.]
Kendall: Zach, Zach, Zach --
Zach: Don't -- don't --
Kendall: Zach -- Zach -- Zach, watch out! Watch out!
Kendall: Zach! Zach, watch out Zach -- Zach! Zach, watch out! Zach! Zach --
Zach: Get up!
Kendall: Zach, watch out.
Zach: You killed Erin, you killed Simone. You killed Dixie, and you killed my mom. Now I'm going to kill you.
[Zach places his bloody hands around his father's hands and squeezes.]
Zach: How does it feel, huh?
Kendall: Zach, no
Zach: How does it feel? You defend yourself -- I'm in charge now!
Kendall: Zach, I --
Zach: I decide who lives or dies! You made me what I am!
Ryan: Zach, get off!
Zach: Get off me!
Tad: Stop, get off!
Zach: Get off of me!
Tad: No, no, no, come here.
Ryan: No, Kendall!
Tad: Come on! Hey, hey!
Kendall: Ryan, please!
Ryan: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Are you ok? What did he do to you?
Kendall: I'm ok.
Ryan: How is this -- I mean, what is it? What's going on?
Zach: Hey, I'm not finished yet!
Tad: Yes. Listen to me. It's finished. It's finished.
Zach: He killed Dixie. His life isn't worth saving!
Tad: No, no! It's not, but yours is.
Ryan: I have you now. It's all right.
Kendall: Ryan, Ryan, listen to me, listen to me. The man is sick. He's sick, ok? He threatened Spike. He threatened to --
Ryan: If my son's name so much as crosses your lips, I swear to you I will finish you myself. How could you do it? How? How could you take my only sister?
Alexander: You disappointed me! You let Alex have Kendall, and you were supposed to keep her away from him. You failed me!
[Alexander groans as he doubles over from Ryan's punch in the gut.]
Josh: Erica, I trust Jack, Ryan, and Zach to keep Kendall safe, and so should you. We're not the only ones who care about her. And if I had the chance to save Kendall the way I saved Babe, I would've jumped at it. You have to know that, but it just so turned out that -- that Kendall's fate was out of my hands. But saving Babe -- that I could do.
Erica: And you have done such a wonderful job. I'm just so worried about your future.
Josh: My future is with Babe.
Babe: How is Little Adam?
Babe: How's my baby?
Krystal: He misses you.
Babe: He doesn't think that I'm -- right?
Krystal: No, no. Nobody's had the heart to tell him, thank the Lord. J.R. is planning on telling him tonight when he gets back from out of town. He's off trying to nail the guy who's responsible for all of this.
Babe: How are you going to stop J.R. from telling him? You can't let him know I'm alive.
Krystal: I'll figure out a way to keep J.R. from telling Little A without tipping the truth. I know about the blackmail. J.R. threatened to tell Adam the truth about my baby.
Stuart: Oh. Uh -- I like to come in here, too, when J.R.'s not around. That room full of Babe's stuff, I -- I can almost make my brain believe that -- that she never left.
Adam: I'm worried about Krystal, Stuart.
Stuart: Yeah. When someone you love dies, it hurts so bad you -- you almost -- almost wish you'd never met them, so your heart wouldn't hurt so badly. When Cindy -- when Cindy died, I thought I was never going to enjoy life again. And when a child dies, it must be ten times worse. It's going to take Krystal some time to -- to accept that. That's what you're worried about, isn't it?
Adam: The light in Krystal's eye, that fire that I fell in love with -- it's gone. I keep telling myself that she's grieving and it'll come back when little Charlotte's born, but I -- in my heart, I know that that's going to happen. I love Krystal more than I've ever loved any other woman. And I feel so damned helpless. For the first time in my life, I don't know what to do or how to fix it.
Stuart: I'm so happy to hear that. No. It -- no, it -- no offense, Adam, but -- but a lot of times when you try to fix stuff, you make it even worse --usually. Well maybe -- maybe if you don't know what to do, it would be a good idea to just don't do anything. And maybe that's exactly what Krystal needs, is you. She just needs you, Adam.
Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, Kendall, please no, no. Just -- just let Tad talk to him, please -- not yet.
Tad: Just listen to me, ok? Zach, listen to me -- hey, listen, ok? If you do it, if you go through with it, it'll feel good for 30 seconds, and then it won't. Because then it hits you -- what you did, what it means. He will never leave you for the rest of your life. He'll be with you every minute of every day in your head, in your mirror, in your dreams. Hey -- you'll never be free of him, ever.
[Jamie, J.R. and Aidan arrive]
Tad: You got to believe me. I know what I'm talking about. You kill your father, it would be the worst mistake you've ever made.
Annie: But there are good reasons. Look, look, if I had to draw a picture of the perfect dad for Emma, Ryan is it. If I had to list all of the qualities I want in a guy, totally Ryan.
Annie: But -- but I so wasn't prepared for those worlds to collide the way that they did. And I don't want Emma to get her hopes up in case things do go south. You know? Plus, can I ever really trust that Ryan wants to be with me, or he just wants to be closer to her?
Julia: Ok, that's a valid concern.
Julia: But I still say go for it.
Di: Me, too.
Annie: Even if it means hurting Emma if things don't work out?
Di: That could be rough.
Julia: You have a point there. But Ryan is such a great guy.
Di: Hmm, that's true.
Julia and Di: Go for it
Di: Yeah. I mean, but, you know, we are both wusses here, so --
Annie: Also, you're not in love with a man who is emotionally attached to someone else.
Tad: No, no, take it easy. Come on. Zach, your father's already taken enough from you. Don't let him take your soul. He'll be punished. Alex will be punished, I promise you, but you punish yourself by becoming like him. If you do that, he wins -- that's what he's wanted all along. My friend, you got an awful lot to live for. You've got Kendall. She's here, she's safe -- you understand? You beat him as his own game. The only reason she's alive is because you beat him. You got a wife and a son that depend on you -- do you know what a blessing that is? Don't let them down, because of that useless sack of garbage in there. He lost, you won. Let that be enough.
J.R.: Did my wife plead for her life? What was the look in her eyes when she died? Was she terrified? Mmm? Babe didn't want to die. You're going to spend the rest of your pathetic life screaming to be put out of your misery. And I'm going to see to it, for my mother and for Babe.
Krystal: You should know J.R. is just full of regret since he lost you. And I -- he was the one that told me that he what he was going to do, and how he feels horrible. He swore, he swore he would never, ever tell Adam that Tad is my baby's father -- he swore. I don't think it's just because he feels guilty, either. I think he loves you.
Babe: And I believe that he loves me. I also don't think that he's capable of trusting me, of trusting anyone, so when it comes down to it, that love means nothing. I'll spend my entire life looking over my shoulder, wondering when he will come up with some new threat.
Krystal: I -- I deny that it's going to be hard for you to ever trust J.R., but I do know one thing -- the way J.R.'s feeling right now, I don't think he's able to go on without you.
Babe: When J.R. finds out that I'm alive, he'll just come up with some new reason to resent me or -- or suspect me and I can't go back to J.R., Mama. He's finally pushed me too far. And I've made up my mind. It's really finally over.
Erica: I don't want to lose you, Josh. I don't want you to leave Pine Valley.
Josh: Well, that's not an answer.
Erica: Look, if I can accept Kendall's marriage to Zach and Bianca's infatuation with that strange musician, I'm sure that I could find a way to tolerate Babe Chandler.
Josh: And you won't go blabbing that she's still alive to anyone?
Erica: I haven't yet. But, Josh, what's going to happen when the killer is caught? I mean, Babe is going to have to come out of hiding. Her husband is going to find out that she's alive.
Josh: We'll deal with that when the time comes. Trust me.
Erica: Josh, what aren't you saying?
Josh: This has to be handled just right, Erica. You know the Chandlers. Nothing's easy when it comes to them.
Colby: Sean and I have been friends for a while now. You got a pretty cool son.
Barbara: Oh, I think so, too. Well, I think both of you are surely late for school now.
Sean: Teacher conferences. We have the day off.
Barbara: Really? Oh. Well, I was going to go shopping at Lacey's all day, but if you're not going to be going to school, what about the three of us see a movie?
Sean: No. We have a project to work on. But you should go to Lacey's -- really.
Barbara: Ok, if you're sure. You two behave now. Nice to meet you, Colby.
Colby: You, too. You never told me your mom was in town.
Sean: It's not that big a deal.
Colby: Hey, no. She's the reason why you're suddenly messed up, isn't she?
Babe: It won't take long. At first, J.R. will be relieved that I'm alive, but then it's going to start eating at him that we kept him in the dark.
Krystal: It'll tick him off even more that Josh was the one taking care of you.
Babe: And pretty soon he'll be so furious, he'll even forget that he missed me and wanted me back. That -- that is just who J.R. is. He'll end up hating me, and we'll be right back to where we were -- with nothing to stop him from telling Adam that the baby you're carrying is Tad's.
[Josh overhears the secret from the other side of the door.]
Erica: Adam. Well, how nice to see you. Come with me.
Zach: It's ok. It's over. Hey, Dad? Only lesson learned today -- Kendall and I are going to be happy for the rest of our lives.
[As Alexander is lead away by J.R. and Jamie, Ryan watches Kendall hugging Zach.]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Krystal (to Adam): I wish J.R. loved Babe the way Josh does.
Adam: When Josh did love Babe, right?
Erica (to Babe): Come on, get dressed. I'll take you home. Don't tell me you're planning to continue with this?
Alexander (to J.R., Adrian, and Tad): I made fools of you for months. Why should I stop now?
