Annie: What happened in Vegas? Are you all right? Did you get hurt?
Ryan: I'm fine. I'm fine, I'm home, and I know what I want. Annie, will you be my wife? Will you take me as your husband? Will you -- will you wear my ring, will you take my name? Will you marry me?
Bianca: Did you find Zach?
Kendall: He's gone.
Erica: I mean, my goodness, you could've been killed. Why would he just drop you at the door and vanish?
Kendall: Mom, I'm fine.
Erica: I wonder why he would just walk away.
Kendall: Mother, Zach saved my life. I owe him forever.
[Zach encounters Zoe at Babe's gravesite.]
Babe: You want me to stay dead?
Josh: Why announce to the world that you're alive if death helps you?
Babe: And what about my little boy? There's no way I'm going to let him think that his mama is dead.
Josh: Well, I've talked to Krystal. She and Little A are on their way over here. They'll be here any minute. As soon as they get here, you and I can sneak Little A out of Pine Valley and never look back.
Little Adam: Where's Mommy?
Krystal: We're going to go see her, ok?
Little Adam: Where is she?
Krystal: Let's go. You are the handsomest thing. Come on, here we go.
Little Adam: Where is she?
J.R.: What do you think you're doing?
Krystal: J.R., you're home.
J.R.: Just answer the question. Hey, big guy. Did you miss me? I missed you to the moon and back. I'm never going to leave you again. Hey, you know what? I smelled some cookies when I came in. Winifred's making some cookies. Why don't you go get yourself one in the kitchen, ok? Go on. Yeah, go get a cookie. You were taking my son to see Babe?
Krystal: J.R. -- Little Adam has been going on and on about missing his mama day and night. He's asking where she is, why isn't she here, when can he see her. I just -- my heart was breaking. So I decided to take Little Adam to the cemetery to visit Babe.
J.R.: I haven't even told him that his mother's dead yet, and you were going to take him to her grave?
Krystal: I -- I was going to break it to him gently.
J.R.: I'm his father.
Krystal: But you weren't home.
J.R.: I am now. I should be the one to tell him.
Adam: Oh, we heard you helped catch that maniac. Thank God you're home.
J.R.: Yeah, just in time.
Adam: Um -- is there a problem?
J.R.: Are you aware that Krystal was going to take my son to Babe's grave?
Adam: Well, you mentioned -- you mentioned the flower show, but Babe's grave?
Krystal: It -- it was a mistake. I -- J.R., I'm sorry. It's just the way Little A was going on, I just wanted to do something for him to help him.
J.R.: It's all right, it's all right. I should've told him about Babe a long time ago. It's just that every time I've tried, it -- you're right. He needs to know that his mother's dead. I'll tell him tonight.
Krystal: No, no. No, you can't.
Babe: You, me, and Little A running off into the sunset? You are certifiable.
Josh: Completely. But it's totally doable, Babe. I have the money, I have the connections. Anywhere you want to go -- Europe, Australia, a deserted island, a condo, a cottage, a beach house -- it doesn't matter, I can make it happen.
Babe: And what about Mama? She goes home without Little A. What exactly is she supposed to say about that? How is she supposed to explain Little Adam vanishing to J.R. and Adam?
Josh: She got carjacked, he was kidnapped.
Babe: No, no way.
Josh: Think about your options, Babe. You announce to the world that you're alive, then what? You go back to J.R., work on your marriage for the zillionth time? Or -- or you get a divorce. You get stuck in a nasty custody battle, and you and lLttle Adam and Krystal get dragged through hell.
Babe: I'm not going back to J.R. I'm done with him, but that doesn't mean that I want to run off with you.
Josh: Babe, all I want to do is take you and Little A someplace where you can find a life that'll make you happy. And once you're there safe and settled, I'll back off. You don't want to see me, you won't. You do, you will. Your happiness is the only thing that matters to me. And if I can help give that to you, then that's enough for me. Believe that all I want is for you and your son to be safe and content and at peace -- with me or -- or without me.
Babe: I believe you.
J.R.: You were ready to take my son to his mommy's fresh grave, but now you -- you don't want me to tell him that she's gone?
Krystal: I don't know if I'm coming or going these days, J.R. I -- I'm thinking in circles, I'm not making sense, I --
Adam: Sweetheart, you have a baby on the way, you're grieving, you're -- you're stressed, and you fainted, for God's sake. Now, why don't you rest? Oh! What have we here?
Winifred: Um -- he wanted to take one to his mommy.
J.R.: Come here. I know Mommy would love to eat a cookie with you tonight. But she can't. Because she's gone. She's not going to --
Erica: What kind of man nearly gets his wife killed and then just runs off and leaves her first chance he gets?
Bianca: I -- I know, Mom, but don't do this now. Kendall just got home. Don't put this on her.
Erica: I'm just saying that Ryan would never do this. If Kendall were with Ryan, he'd be right in there helping her to put her little boy to bed -- and his little boy to bed -- and he would never pull a Zach. He would never just run off to God knows where to do God knows what.
Kendall: Zach needs to do this, Mother.
Erica: Honey, I just don't understand why Zach would need to walk away from you at a time like this.
Kendall: He has to get the blood off his hands.
Zach: Did I scare you?
Zoe: It's all right -- cemetery, night, things that go bump.
Zach: I owe you an apology.
Zoe: For suspecting me? It's all right. I was here, new to town, odd.
Zach: I treated you badly, and I shouldn't have done that.
Zoe: An apology in return. When the attacks started, I was flip. Women died -- sisters, mothers, daughters. I took credit to cover up my own drama. Shameful and ugly -- amazing what fear will make us do. You hate who you are.
Ryan: I was on the plane back, and it hit me, Annie. I wasn't coming back to Vine Valley. I was coming back to you. The face that I saw when I thought of home was your face. And then when you opened the door just now, and I saw your face, it sealed it. The only future that I want is one with you and with Emma. And I guess I'm just hoping that you'll say yes, and that you'll say that you want that, too.
Jonathan: Aha -- you're here.
Jonathan: It's about time. Oh, come on, what are you waiting for? The party's started, let's go, you guys.
Annie: Everybody will be thrilled to see you -- what are you doing?
Ryan: Cover for us.
Krystal: Listen -- uh -- why don't I take this little one upstairs, ok? Tomorrow's another day -- I think this one's been long enough for everybody. Come on, honey. Let's go find a fairy tale with a happy ending, ok?
Adam: Son? J.R., it's all right. When the time is right, you'll find the strength to tell him.
J.R.: When will that be? I have to tell my son that his mother's dead, that his grandmother's gone. I still can't even deal with the fact that I'm never going to see them again. How do I start? How do I make him make any sense of this?
Josh: Disappearing may not be the best answer, but it's the only one we have. I will get you through this.
Babe: Yes, but it's just -- it's too extreme.
Josh: If you stay and fight J.R., he will blow Krystal's life to hell. I know -- he's promised her that he won't tell Adam that -- that the baby is Tad's. But as soon as he feels threatened, as soon as J.R. thinks that he may lose Little Adam, that -- that promise disappears, and you know it. He will cut Krystal down without a second thought. Unless you think he's changed. Unless you think he'll keep his word.
Babe: J.R. has broken nearly every promise that he's made.
Josh: Yeah, and he won't stop now. So don't give him a chance. The sooner that we get you and Little Adam out of Pine Valley the better -- and Krystal, too.
Babe: I've done this, Josh. I have run before, I -- I let J.R. think that his son was dead, and -- and it was wrong, and I'm sorry but I can't, I won't do it again. I do this. There has to be another way. This isn't the life that I want for my son.
Josh: Babe, I promise you, you won't live your life on the run. We'll find you someplace where you can have your picket fence. You deserve security. You deserve peace of mind and a life with your son. I want you to have that. Let me help you get it.
Annie: We are in the middle of nowhere.
Ryan: Yes, we are, just you and me in the middle of the stars. You want to make out?
Annie: It -- it could take an eternity for somebody to get us some gas out here.
Ryan: And an eternity would be ok, as long as I'm with you. Just one little kiss.
Annie: You are impossible.
Ryan: What do you mean? I just -- I just proposed to you. That's what happens after I propose -- you know, a kiss. Just -- you know, you kiss me, propose.
Annie: Ok, you and me getting involved -- not a good idea, remember?
Ryan: Right. Bad idea.
Annie: Oh, God --
Ryan: That decision was obviously a bad idea on not getting involved. Look, Annie, we have something. We do, and instead of trying to manage it and control it, let's just see where it goes, because my bet is that it goes somewhere pretty incredible.
Annie: And what if we fizzle? We agreed already on this, Ryan. We -- we didn't want to get tangled up in something that could go sideways. As great as you are --
Ryan: You think I'm great?
Annie: Uh -- Emma comes first.
Ryan: Yes, she does, always. But you think I'm great?
Annie: Oh --
Ryan: Ok. Ok, ok, ok, ok. Emma's not going to get hurt, because we're not going to break up. We're not, because I'm going to build us a life and a family for the rest of our lives.
Zoe: I'm sorry.
Zach: It's all right.
Zoe: I do understand, you know? I hated myself, too, for years -- something I'm still struggling with.
Zach: I didn't want to be my father's son. So I became someone else.
Zoe: You tried. You made all of the external adjustments -- new name, new life -- just as I did. But you can never kill who you really are.
Kendall: Zach is wrecked by what his father did. That sick old man took so many lives.
Erica: I just wish this had never had happened.
Kendall: Well, Mom, Zach -- he needs to deal with everything that's happened -- his father, his past, the murders. I mean, he needs to understand that he's not to blame for this. So if he needs a little time alone, I think he's entitled to it.
Bianca: I'm just glad that you're safe, that you're home, and you're all right.
Erica: Oh, if that killer had hurt one little hair on your head, I would've hunted him down myself.
Kendall: There were moments when I thought Alexander would win. I was terrified. But then I -- I thought of us -- you, Binks, and our legacy. And I thought about what you said, Mom. Remember when I sat right here on this couch, and I told you that I wished I could keep Spike in a little cocoon, all wrapped up so that I could keep him safe forever?
Erica: Of course, I remember. I told you it wasn't possible.
Kendall: Right. You told me to teach my child to face danger. To get knocked down, but then get back up again and fight. So I fought -- like you fought, and you fought. And that's -- that's what got me through. That's how I survived.
Adam: Little Adam means the world to me. Whatever he needs -- whatever you need -- let me help you get through this. What do you say?
J.R.: You can be a real snake sometimes.
J.R.: But you've always been there for me. Even with the biggest mistakes that I've made, you've been there, solid.
Adam: That's what fathers do.
J.R.: Some fathers take it to the extreme. I want to be the kind of father to Little Adam that you were to me.
J.R.: I want to support him the way that you supported me. I don't want to control him, I don't want to fit him into the Chandler mold -- I just don't think that's right. But I want to raise him to feel loved, to feel protected, to feel free. I want to raise him the way that Babe would've wanted him raised.
Babe: I just -- I -- I take my son away from the family that he loves so much.
Josh: Babe, relax, all right? You need to calm down. It's not good for your heart.
Babe: I mean, just to tear him out of the life that he loves and make Mama lie to -- to Adam and to the police? That -- that would be even worse for me.
Josh: I just want you to know that you have a choice.
Babe: I can't -- I can't do it to Little A, I can't do it to my mama. I'm sorry, it just wouldn't be fair.
Krystal: Oh. Anybody ready for a visitor?
Babe: Hi! Do you know how much your mommy loves you, how much I missed you? Come here! Hi, handsome. Hey. What is it, baby?
Babe: You have a little boo-boo? See, Mommy has a little boo-boo, too -- that's why I have these -- these little wires -- but guess what.
Little Adam: What happened to you ache?
Babe: What happened? Mommy just wasn't feeling too well, but --
Little Adam: What happened?
Babe: What happened? My heart was a little -- a little sad, and it hurt a little bit, but I'm feeling better, because I have a really good doctor taking care of me. And that means that I get to come home and be with you very soon.
J.R.: I want to be the kind of man that my son can be proud of.
Adam: J.R., you're a good man.
J.R.: Would a good man walk away from somebody who's battered and bruised and bleeding on the floor?
J.R.: I did.
Adam: What, you mean a man who is a woman who is a lesbian who is -- God knows --
J.R.: You heard Bianca. Everything that came out of her mouth was true -- I was cruel, I didn't have an ounce of sympathy in me, I didn't care what happened to Zoe.
Adam: Yeah, you -- you're not the only one who would walk away from that kind of trouble.
J.R.: Yeah, that's right, walk away -- anything that's an inconvenience to me. I don't care, I don't trust, I don't give unless I get back. I don't want to raise Little Adam like that.
Adam: You would never treat your son that way.
J.R.: I don't want to mistake control for love. I want to -- I want to teach Little A compassion, not hate. I want to take the time, I want to make the effort. I mean, I owe that to my son. I owe it to Babe.
Babe: Have you been a good boy for me?
Krystal: Oh, yeah.
Babe: Yeah? Of course, yes.
Krystal: He's been golden, let me tell you. Haven't you? In fact, he has been so good, why don't you take him out for a treat? There's something in my bag in the next room there, ok?
Wendy: I would love to.
Babe: Well, can I get some sugar before you go? I'm going to steal it. Love you.
Wendy: All right, little guy, come on with me. Come on.
Krystal: It's just in that bag out there.
Babe: Thank you so much, Mama.
Krystal: It was pure luck, you know. J.R. almost caught me.
Josh: He doesn't suspect anything, does he?
Krystal: No, no, not a thing. But I -- I can't stay. I have to get back before J.R. and Adam realize that they're two short of a full house. Oh, honey. It was worth the risk. Watching that little angel hug his mama did my heart so good. Now, what was so unfair that you didn't want to do it to Little Adam and me?
Babe: You heard?
Krystal: Not enough. Why do think I sent Little A out for a sugar high? But by the looks of your faces when we walked in, it's pretty serious stuff. Josh, what are you getting my baby girl into again, huh?
Babe: He wants me to run off with Little A, start a new life. And he wants you to tell J.R. that he was kidnapped.
Krystal: What do you want?
Kendall: I would like for you to accept Zach, and accept that I love him.
Erica: I know that you love him. But, honey, your life with him has been one disaster after another.
Kendall: Why you understand that he's not to blame for what his father did?
Erica: I don't blame him for what his father did. Look, let's not do this tonight.
Kendall: No, Mom, I really think that we should. I mean, how -- how can you forget what we went through? I mean, all those years that I blamed myself and hated myself, because my father was this sick, twisted man who hurt you?
Erica: That was so different.
Kendall: No, Mother, it -- no, it wasn't, it's not. Everything that happened, everything that -- that was done in my life was because of my father -- his -- his sickness, my sickness, his sins, my sin. I -- I hated him, I hated myself. I mean, you remember it was so rough for so long.
Erica: But you get past it.
Kendall: That was because of you -- you and Binks. Because you love me -- me -- me for who I am, separate from my father.
Erica: Yes. I know -- it's how my mom loved me.
Kendall: Well, Zach needs that right now, and I'm going to give it to him.
Zach: I am my father's son, I always will be, and I'm responsible for these women's deaths.
Zoe: No, you're not a clone. You're the son, not the father.
Zach: Right, and I thought about that. I didn't kill these women, right?
Zach: But then when I had my father's neck in my hands, I realized something. He branded me. He made me who he is. What do I do with that?
Zoe: You'll have to find that answer for yourself. But I still have my brand -- my man brand --
Zoe: And I still don't know what to do with that.
Zach: Well, you can do things, medical things, procedures -- you can do things.
Zoe: Yes, well, that's my choice to make, just as you have to find your own path -- and no one can tell you. It has to come from the inside.
Zach: Yeah. Well, if there were a procedure --
Zach: If I could get my dad out of my head and out of my blood and out of my DNA -- but there isn't. The man brand remains the same -- just as these women remain in their graves.
Zoe: You're not going to give up the guilt, are you?
Ryan: I proposed to you, because I want to be straight with you. I -- I want you to know where my head is at. Now, as far as the timing and all that kind of stuff, that -- you know, that's your call.
Annie: When you left town, we were good. Totally agreed -- friends. And now you come back talking about marriage out of the blue? Something happened in Vegas. What, is it -- is it about Kendall?
Ryan: Yes. What happened with Kendall does have a lot to do with this. Alex Cambias almost killed Kendall. He killed my sister. He killed Dixie before she found her daughter. I mean -- and they were all so young. And, yes, when I saw Kendall safe and alive, I wanted what she had. I wanted a second chance at life.
Annie: Complete with instant family.
Ryan: You know, you can plan, and you can try to control it, but in the end, life can just be taken right out from underneath you. I don't want to exist just until I don't. I don't want to waste time. I want to make it happen, I want to live the life that I want right now. I don't want regrets, I -- I want memories, and I want them -- I want them with you and with Emma.
Annie: I know you love Emma, and you want to give her everything and make sure that she's taken care of, but I --
Ryan: Yes, I love your daughter very much. But this isn't -- isn't only about Emma. It's about us. It's about you and me. I really want to be with you.
Babe: I don't know what I want, Mama. I -- I know that I don't want to lose Little Adam to J.R., but I don't want to go on the run, and I also know that I don't want to put you in a corner having to lie for me.
Krystal: It's my lie that got us here. So I'll do whatever I have to do to protect you and that precious little boy.
Babe: And if I do take Little A, you're not going to have to lie just to J.R. You're going to have to lie to Adam, too. Every single day, watching them suffer, thinking that Little A was kidnapped? I -- I can't do that.
Krystal: I'll handle whatever comes ahead.
Babe: Mama, you cannot have that kind of stress with a new baby on the way.
Josh: Look, it wouldn't be easy, but Babe and Little A would be out of danger.
Krystal: So you're saying that once Babe pops out of this cake and asks for a divorce and custody, that J.R. is just going to go back to his nasty old ways?
Josh: You think I'm wrong?
Krystal: If you get away from J.R., and you start a new life with your baby, you know I'll miss you. But it won't hurt so bad knowing you're safe and happy. But if you decide to stay and go at J.R., then I will give it everything I've got to make sure that you keep your little boy, that he's with you where he belongs.
Babe: And if you stand by me, J.R. will not hesitate to go to Adam about Charlotte.
Krystal: I will deal with that.
Babe: And watching the love of your life kick you out of his? No, I -- I can't do that.
Krystal: Don't you worry about me -- or my marriage. The only thing that matters is you hanging on to Little Adam. We'll take them both on if that's what it takes.
Babe: If I take J.R. to court, I could still lose.
J.R.: The man that I was died with Babe. The way that I treated her -- I can't take it back, I can't make it right. But I can raise her son to be the kind of man that she would be proud of.
Adam: Yeah. One we can all be proud of.
J.R.: We could lose the Chandler arrogance, the self-entitled thing.
Adam: Don't forget the control thing. Although, the mistakes I made with you -- and Hayley and Colby?
J.R.: But you loved us.
Adam: Yeah. And I love Charlotte. I'm hoping I can avoid all those mistakes. I want her raised to be strong and secure and loved. Who knows -- maybe I'd pull it off. I owe it to Charlotte, and I owe it to Krystal. Yeah, who knows -- maybe you and I can help each other be better fathers.
J.R.: I'd like that.
J.R.: I have a feeling if Babe were here right now, she'd be very pleased.
Adam: Who would've thought it'd come to this -- the Carey women inspiring the Chandlers to be better men?
Babe: J.R. and Adam -- they buy their justice -- lawyers and judges and politicians -- and then next thing we know, J.R. has Little Adam.
Josh: That's not the only way J.R. could walk away.
Babe: You're right -- all he has to do is fire up the Chandler jet, and I'll never see my little boy again.
Josh: Not unless you beat him to it.
Babe: And I don't know if I'm willing to take my son from his family -- even though I know J.R. would rip him right out of my arms without even losing a wink of sleep. Hey.
Wendy: He misses his mommy.
Babe: Oh! I missed you, too. Come here. Did you get a good treat?
Little Adam: Yes.
Babe: Oh, you did? What did you have? Tell me about it.
Little Adam: A lollipop.
Babe: Oh! A sucker? You are so lucky.
Little Adam: I ate it all -- you see it.
Babe: Oh, you ate it all, I see it in your belly?
Wendy: Isn't that a picture?
Krystal: Oh, it really is.
Babe: In your belly.
Little Adam: That's where it went down. It went down -- I ate it all.
Babe: I'm going to stay here -- for now.
Josh: You're making the right choice.
Babe: Just for now. But right now somebody has to get home and get to bed -- if he's not on a sugar high.
Little Adam: I am.
Babe: You are? I can tell. Can you do me a favor? I need your help with something. Do you think you could help me? Yeah? Um -- Mommy has to stay here for a little while longer. But nobody can know that you saw me, ok? It's going to be our little secret, ok?
Krystal: I think it's time I take this little boy home.
Babe: Come here. We're going to be together real soon, I promise.
Erica: To my brave and wonderful daughter, safe at home where she belongs.
Bianca: To my sweet sister, who lives every day with courage and love.
Kendall: And to Zach, who saved my life, and hopefully will be on the way to saving his.
Zoe: It's getting late. I don't want to leave you here alone.
Zach: I'm sorry, honey. I'm so sorry.
[Zoe hugs Zach]
Ryan: You tell me that it won't work. Tell me that it's impossible. Tell me that you want me to get out of the car and get out of here. Tell me that I don't have a chance.
Annie: Well, if anyone stands a chance, it's you.
[Ryan grabs Annie and kisses her]
Josh: Whatever you decide, I'm with you. If you want to disappear, I will make sure no one ever finds you. But if you want to stay, I've got your back.
Krystal: Sweet dreams.
Babe: I can't do this with you here. I need to think. I need -- I need to be alone.
J.R.: Hey, buddy. You all tucked in? Hmm? Yeah? I'll tuck you in. I want you to have a good night. I'll talk to you about Mommy in the morning.
Little Adam: I saw Mommy -- it's a secret.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Zoe (to Dr. Massey): I would like to begin hormone administration right now.
Dr. Massey: I'm sorry, Zoe, I can't do that.
Kendall: What do you think, Spikey? Mama's got a magic wand.
J.R. (to Krystal): Why don't you take me where you took my son last night?
