Alexander: I knew my son would be back.
Zach: I accept your gift. I'll take over Cambias.
Alexander: Fight it all you want, the Cambias blood always wins out. I knew you'd come around, make me proud.
Jonathan: You and Annie are perfect together. She's an astounding mother. She's going to make a perfect wife. Now we just have to figure out how to get her down that aisle. Hi, Kendall.
Kendall: Hi. You -- proposed to Annie?
Ryan: I did. Hey, Jonathan, will you do me a favor? Will you get a couple more boxes from the storage room?
Jonathan: Boxes? Right.
Jonathan: You got it. Bye.
Ryan: Go ahead. Spit it out. What's the matter?
Bianca: Oh. It's true. You made it.
Bianca: You're safe. You're alive, Babe. Thank God.
Krystal: J.R. was with Babe? Well, what did he do?
Josh: Nothing yet. Right now, he's supposedly swept up in the miracle. "Babe's alive, hallelujah. " He's all about love and promises -- the promise to keep your secret -- that's his biggest weapon.
Krystal: Oh. Babe is a -- is a miracle. Maybe we can hope for another one.
Josh: What, that J.R. turns into a human? If Babe stands up to him -- crosses him, it's over, Krystal.
Krystal: I told Babe that she didn't have to protect me. I just want her to do what she has to do to handle J.R.
Josh: You're the one that needs to do something, and we both know what that is.
J.R.: Hey, Tad. Isn't it great? Doesn't Babe look amazing?
Tad: Yeah, she does. She looks wonderful.
J.R.: Well, come on in. We'll celebrate.
Tad: I can't. This isn't a social call. I just followed Josh.
J.R.: What the hell's Madden doing here?
Tad: Well, I don't know. My guess is it has something to do with whatever you're using to blackmail Babe.
Colby: Babe's alive?
Colby: How is that -- Dad, how is that even possible? Well, when -- when can I see her? When is she coming home? Now? Does J.R. know? What about Krystal?
Adam: No, no, they know. They know. They've known for some time.
Colby: Oh, Dad, I swear, I am going to be the best loving sister-in-law/stepsister in the entire world, starting now.
Adam: Oh, well, I'm glad to hear that, because this family could use a little happiness right now.
Colby: Oh! Happy is good.
Adam: Yes, happy's good. That's why I asked you to join me here -- so we could go on a little shopping spree for Krystal and the baby. Didn't -- didn't seem appropriate when we thought Babe was, you know, gone, but now -- katy bar the door.
Colby: Ooh! Dad, Charlotte is going to need the cutest clothes, and there aren't too many shopping days left until she's here, so --
Adam: No. This day is going to be one you'll remember. Not only is little Charlotte going to be in her beautiful mother's arms, but you're going to be there, and J.R.'s going to be there. And hopefully, Babe is going to be there. All of us, the family, healthy, safe -- and together. That's all I ask.
Krystal: All I want is to help my baby doll any way I can.
Josh: Your baby doll and I should have been long gone with Little A. But Erica kind of blew that.
Krystal: Oh. Oh, I wish I could have a few minutes alone with that woman.
Josh: Well, forget about Erica. This isn't about her. Babe's the one who is in trouble. When J.R. showed up at her room, it was all about the love. And she took it. How could -- how could she not? She couldn't tell him to -- to leave, or to go to hell, because of you. She -- she sets J.R. off, and she's going to grind your life up. She's not going to do that, Krystal.
Krystal: I called her and told her not to worry about me.
Josh: Babe will do whatever it takes to protect you. She'll sacrifice her freedom, her happiness. She'll give in to J.R., because she'll be afraid for you.
Krystal: I was on my --
Josh: She will live with that fear for the rest of her life.
Krystal: Josh, I was on my way over here to tell Adam that this baby is Tad's, and Babe stopped me. She insisted that we do this her way. I -- I hate this.
Josh: Well, so do I.
Krystal: Oh, really? No, you liked this secret when you used it to get Babe to run with you, but now that it's not working for you, it's a weapon?
Josh: You think I'm as bad as J.R.?
J.R.: Josh told you that I was blackmailing Babe?
Tad: So you are?
J.R.: Past tense.
Tad: J.R. -- the fact that you have another chance is -- is a miracle. I got to warn you, I'm not going to let you hurt Babe. I don't care what you think you have on her, I'll do everything I can to stop it.
J.R.: Well, you won't have to. Because I'm never going to hurt Babe ever again.
Tad: I've heard that before.
J.R.: Before Babe died, I slammed her. I -- I hurt her. I made her life hell. I take that back. I love her, Tad. I want her back. I want her to want to come back. I want her to feel safe. The best way that I can do that is by burying what I know. I'm not telling anyone. And that includes you. I'm sorry.
Alexander: Tell me, what compelled you to crawl back to me on your knees?
Zach: I'm not on my knees.
Alexander: My son carrying on my legacy -- it's been worth the struggle, the lives.
Zach: Your legacy? Uh-uh. You're going to disappear.
Zach: I'm going to rebuild Cambias from the ground up. And all the lives you took, I will honor them. It'll be their legacy. And I will build something we can be proud of. Something my mom would be proud of.
Alexander: That's your fantasy.
Zach: You have no hold over me. Not anymore.
Alexander: What game is this? You're holding something back. What is it you're not telling me?
Kendall: I know that you guys share Emma. You've been roommates, but marriage, Ryan? That's a big step.
Ryan: Yes, it is. Big step, but it's the right step.
Kendall: Well, if you're sure that Annie can make you happy, then --
Ryan: She does, very happy.
Ryan: Look, if you're worried about what this means for Spike -- he's my son, and I think I've made it pretty clear that I will be there for him, always.
Kendall: I know that.
Ryan: Then we're good?
Kendall: Ahem -- yeah, yeah. If -- if a life with Annie is what you really want, then I'm happy for you.
Ryan: Do you mean that?
[Kendall runs out of Ryan's office, slamming the door behind her.]
Bianca: But at the hospital, everybody kept saying that you were a survivor. And all I could think about was the heart infection that you got after Little A was born. What if your heart wasn't strong enough to handle the v-tach? What if it was all just too much, and I -- I wanted to save you, like you had saved me that night, but I couldn't. And then, when they said that -- that you didn't make it -- I realized something. At your funeral, I actually said it to you, and -- um -- I hoped that you would hear me. Obviously, you didn't. Um -- but I am very happy to have another opportunity to tell you. I forgive you for everything. I forgive you.
Babe: Bianca, I -- thank you.
Bianca: I want another chance. I want to be friends again.
Babe: Absolutely, and I never stopped loving you.
Adam: I didn't know you were on a first-name basis with every clerk in the mall.
Colby: Dad, I've -- I've got it. I know how to get J.R. and Babe back together.
Adam: Oh, now, no, no. The best thing you can do for J.R. and Babe is just be you.
Colby: Ugh. That's a bust.
Adam: No, just let them know you care. Babe especially could use a little extra TLC right now.
Colby: That sounds kind of boring. But I'll do it, and I'll be great. Hey, do you remember when I was little, and you used to read "Little Miss Muffet" to me? Well, Little Miss Muffet didn't just sit on her tuffet waiting and hoping.
Colby: She got up and she made things happen. Kicked those spiders to the curb. And now you're telling me to back off?
Colby: Dad, are you -- are you sure you're ok? No -- no fever or chills?
Adam: Yeah, yeah. I'm fine. It's -- you know, I used to believe that the only way to get what you wanted was by -- well, bending, breaking, forcing, but I've learned something. I've -- I found Krystal to be an inspiration to me. Trust love, have faith, and be honest. So far, so good.
Krystal: You know, Babe made a lot of noise about how running was the best thing. But it wasn't what she wanted. It's what you wanted. J.R. wasn't the one pressuring her this time, it was you.
Josh: Yeah, I pushed her, Krystal, but it wasn't for me.
Krystal: You love Babe, Josh. And you want a life with her. So Babe on the run -- the answer to your prayers. J.R. is out of the picture and the field is clear.
Josh: You know what? Don't play it like J.R. and I are the same. Babe told me she loved me and then she chose J.R. Did I try to blackmail her? Kill her? Get -- get payback? No. My only crime was wanting her to find peace with her son without having to navigate through another one of J.R.'s minefields.
Krystal: Well, you know, it is possible for Babe to have that right here, but then where would that leave you?
Josh: You know, you're so concerned about your daughter. That was a hell of a load you dumped on her when you told her you're carrying Tad's baby. You know, J.R. is trouble but right now, the threat to Babe is you.
Babe: So did I miss much while I was dead?
Bianca: Um -- that's not funny.
Babe: You're right, I'm sorry. Actually, what I'm looking for is specifics. J.R. -- did you -- did you see him, did -- did you talk to him? Did he say anything?
Bianca: We've spoken. Yeah, why?
Babe: He came here, and he said that he was going to do whatever he could to get me to love him again. He also said that he forgave me, and that he had changed for good, and that he'd never hurt me again.
Bianca: So you're not going back to him?
Babe: No. No way. I -- but J.R. is desperate for another chance, and he said that he won't stop fighting to get me back.
Bianca: J.R. desperate is never really a good thing. You're scared that he hasn't changed, right? You're afraid he's going to blackmail you again.
J.R.: Babe comes first. And I said I'm sorry. I -- I give you what you want --
Tad: No, I don't want -- I don't want your apology. I just want your word. I want your word of honor, you're not going to go after Babe the moment she frustrates or disappoints you.
J.R.: It's not going to happen. I swear it. I just got a second chance to be the kind of husband that Babe deserves, one that she can be proud of. I'm not going to blow this.
Tad: Nothing about losing your mother makes any sense. But if after all this insanity, you finally realize how valuable love is -- you can respect that -- maybe she'd be happy. Maybe she didn't die in vain.
J.R.: I swear on my mother's grave, I'll keep my word to Babe.
Tad: Ok. You know I love you. I just hope you never forget how proud I am of you.
J.R.: Don't be proud of me. I don't deserve it, especially from you.
Alexander: You're not going to be happy. You don't get to have peace. Wake up, you fool. My legacy's not about brick and mortar. It's tattooed on your soul, and you can't escape it.
Zach: You have no power over me. Hey, Dad, I want you to imagine something. Another car crash. Whatever you were to me, whatever I was to you -- it's gone. Gone up in flames.
Alexander: Don't say that to me! You can't do that to me -- not again! Alex, come back!
Ryan: Why'd you run out of the room like that? What -- what's going on?
Kendall: Uh -- sick.
Ryan: Oh. You're kidding me. What, do you have the flu? Food poisoning? You want me to take you home?
Kendall: No. No, no, I'm fine.
Ryan: You sure?
Kendall: It's normal.
Ryan: It's normal? You're --
Kendall: I'm pregnant. Yep, I'm pregnant.
Kendall: With child, in the family way.
Ryan: Zach knows?
Kendall: He knows, he knows. He's -- actually, he's -- he's thrilled, Ryan. Hope and strength, a future. The good guys win. And get married --
Kendall: And have babies. I get it now.
Ryan: Get what?
Kendall: Well, you even tried to tell me about Emma and having another child. I was so afraid that she would distract you from Spike and take away what you had with him. But now I know it's just the opposite. More children, more love. And -- and think about it. Spike -- he's going to have a little brother or a little sister now, somebody to play with.
Ryan: To boss around.
Kendall: Yeah. And Zach -- Zach -- he's -- he's suffered so much because of his dad. I think this child will help him. I already love him -- or her -- as much as Spike.
Ryan: Get over here. Come here, right now. I am so happy for you.
Bianca: I only know that J.R. was blackmailing you. I don't know the specifics. I -- I don't want to know, either. And I -- I promise, I won't tell anyone.
Babe: Thank you. I'm only hoping now that it won't be a problem. J.R. says that he'll never use it against me.
Bianca: You mean because he's changed? He's all about the good now?
Babe: Ok, what aren't you telling me? What happened?
Bianca: Zoe went to the cemetery one night to visit your grave. She was attacked by the killer.
Babe: Well, is she -- what, is she ok? What happened?
Bianca: She's ok. It was -- it was pretty brutal, though. She had a concussion and some bruised ribs. She spent a couple of days --
Babe: Oh, my --
Bianca: In the -- in the hospital.
Babe: That's terrible. But -- but what does it have to do with J.R.?
Bianca: J.R. happened to be walking through the cemetery and saw Zoe lying there on the ground, unable to get up. He called her every name in the book. And then he left her there, alone, for dead. She could have died. So much for J.R.'s redemption.
J.R.: I'm just trying to do the right thing for once in my life.
Tad: Well, don't run yourself down. That's a big thing.
J.R.: I'm not blackmailing my wife. Can we just stop with this whole blackmailing thing? I mean -- it's not even happening.
Tad: Ok. All right. Whatever it is, it's got to be powerful stuff. It's got a lot of people upset.
J.R.: Well, it's only powerful if it gets out. And it's not going to. So don't hash it out with Josh or Krystal or Babe. Can we just keep it buried? Can you do that?
Tad: For you? I'll let it go.
J.R.: Thank you.
Krystal: J.R. is making an effort. The regret is real. I see it in his eyes.
Josh: Well, look into his eyes a year from now, Krystal. Or two, or three, when the glow of Babe back from the dead is over. If she stands up to him, tells him to go to hell, he'll flip out the way he always does. And what do you think he'll go for first? Your secret.
Krystal: Aren't you getting ahead of yourself?
Josh: Every day, she'll be afraid it'll come out. Every day, she'll be afraid for you. She will be shackled to J.R. She'll turn herself into knots trying to make him happy. And it'll all be for you. Is that what you want? You get Babe back, only to see her give her whole life to J.R.
Krystal: I will not let that happen.
Josh: If you don't think Babe will sacrifice herself for you, you don't know your own daughter.
J.R.: Well, those expressions can only mean one thing. Josh knows?
Krystal: About the baby, yes.
J.R.: My father or Tad will never find out. And they sure as hell are not going to hear it from you.
J.R.: You all right?
Krystal: What happened with Babe?
J.R.: Babe was so beautiful. She's like an angel. I told her that I loved her, and I begged her for forgiveness.
Krystal: Did she forgive you?
J.R.: Babe still wants a divorce. But I begged her for a second chance -- prove that I've changed. And I also made her the same promise that I made you. My father will never know that the baby's Tad's.
Krystal: How did she take that?
J.R.: Babe doesn't trust me yet. And forgiveness will be somewhere behind that. But after everything I've done to her, I understand. I love her, Krystal. I'm not going to give up.
Babe: How the heck could J.R. walk away from someone so badly hurt? How is Zoe doing now?
Bianca: She's good. In fact, she's better than good. She's checking out gender reassignment programs. She met with an endocrinologist to talk about the transition process. She even attended a transgender group meeting.
Babe: That is wonderful.
Bianca: Yeah. Just don't bake cookies with her. She eats half the dough before they even get in the oven.
Babe: Why am I not surprised? Sounds like you two have become a lot closer since I've been hiding out here.
Bianca: Yeah, we have, as friends.
Babe: Hmm. Friends who bake cookies. What, I'm just saying Zoe's lucky to have such a good friend.
Bianca: You know, there -- there's something else that you should know about J.R.
Babe: No, I don't know if I want to hear any more.
Bianca: Zoe and I ran into him at the hospital, and he apologized to her --
Bianca: For what happened at the cemetery, yes.
Babe: And did J.R. mean it?
Bianca: Um -- yeah. He seemed to. He seemed extremely sincere. I think he meant every word. Just like he probably meant every promise that he ever made to you. It's just J.R. -- J.R.'s broken. It seems like no matter how hard he tries --
Babe: Just --
Bianca: Yeah -- you know what? He's -- he's -- he's trying. He's -- he's fighting. He's fought before.
Babe: Yes, you're right. It just -- it -- it never lasts.
Bianca: You were going to leave.
Babe: It was a desperation move. I didn't -- I didn't even want to go. I mean, I -- I'd done that before. I'd run before, and I hurt people. Not again, and I -- I love my life here. My -- my family, my job. My friends.
Bianca: I'm glad you stayed.
Babe: Me, too. But now I have to get ready for one heck of a fight if I'm going to get custody of Little A.
J.R.: I'll get her back.
Krystal: What if all your work doesn't pay off, J.R.? What if, no matter how hard you try, she doesn't give you another chance? You love her enough to fight for her. You love her enough to let her go?
J.R.: Babe won't leave me. I'll win her back. She's my wife. I'll do whatever it takes.
Ryan: Can I get you anything else, anything at all?
Kendall: No, I'm good.
Ryan: You sure?
Kendall: Yep, I'm good.
Ryan: All right.
Kendall: You know, I was just thinking, I wonder if the cravings are going to be the same.
Kendall: You know, with Spike, he was all about the ice cream. And -- and at midnight, just when I would finally -- finally fall asleep, he would do soccer practice and kick like crazy.
Kendall: He's definitely a night owl.
Ryan: Still likes the late show, I think.
Kendall: Hmm. And then, there were those dreams that I had about the -- the stomach balloons.
Ryan: What, the stomach balloons?
Kendall: You -- you know about the stomach balloons, yeah. Remember, with Spike, I had these constant dreams about these big balloons with bellybuttons.
Ryan: Yeah -- I might, like, blame the late-night ice cream while Spike was practicing soccer for that -- I don't know.
Ryan: I don't know.
Kendall: Oh. I have to give Annie credit.
Kendall: Well, she is the whole Mother Earth package. I can picture her with an even dozen never breaking a sweat. And with your vasectomy, it kind of reduces the number of children to Emma. So she really must love you.
Kendall: Hold that thought.
Kendall: Hey, big daddy, what's going on?
Zach: Kendall, I need to see you right away. Can you meet me at the casino?
Kendall: What's up?
Zach: I found the key.
Kendall: The -- Zach?
Jonathan: Ok, so Kendall gave you a hard time. She's not exactly an Annie fan. Ryan, you don't need her in the middle of this.
Ryan: Ok, this has nothing to do with Kendall. Actually, this has to do with me. How could I be so stupid? The vasectomy, Jonathan. Annie doesn't know about that. I haven't told her about that yet.
Jonathan: Trust me, it doesn't matter.
Ryan: You don't know that. I mean, Kendall's right. Annie loves kids. She loves kids. She's going to want to have more kids. I might not be able to give that to her.
Jonathan: Annie wants you.
Ryan: Well, she hasn't said yes yet. I mean, she doesn't love me. This could be the thing to tip the scales.
Jonathan: Would you trust me, please? Annie is madly in love with you.
Kendall: Oh, my God. You. Someone has been very, very busy.
Zach: I have to hold up some of the load, right?
Kendall: Yeah. Oh, God, look at this. This is amazing. Hmm. Just very sweet. Very, very festive, I have to say. I like all this --
Zach: It's cool, right?
Kendall: Yeah, it's really cool.
Zach: See that? See the balloons?
Kendall: Yes, I do.
Zach: Not just balloons, they are bellybutton balloons. Believe that?
Kendall: Oh, my God, they are.
Kendall: From my -- my dreams. You remembered my dreams.
Zach: I remember everything about you. Come on.
Zach: For you.
Kendall: Zach -- thank you.
[Kendall holds up a silver key on a chain]
Kendall: It's beautiful. What does it open?
Zach: It opens the home I'm going to build for you, Spike, and our baby. It's the key to our future. It's the key to Miranda Centers -- of women and children in need. It's a key to a heart that I thought was burnt up 20 years ago in a car crash. You saved me. You saved my heart. You, Spike, and the baby. You saved me.
Krystal: You two must have bought out the entire mall.
Colby: Yeah, almost.
Colby: And I bought these for Babe. They're kind of like the ones that I borrowed and lost last summer. You think she'll like them?
Krystal: She'll love them.
Adam: Colby, would you do me a big, big favor? Take some of these things up to the nursery for now?
Colby: Yeah, sure.
Adam: Would you put -- thank you.
Adam: Ah. What is it? What's wrong? I know it's a lot to take in. Two miracles in so short a time. Babe's alive. And little Charlotte is almost here.
Krystal: I want -- I want our children to be happy. I want -- I want Babe to be happy.
Adam: Well, of course, you do. And she will be, because you'll see to it. Honey, what is it? What's wrong?
Adam: Krystal? Krystal, what?
Krystal: J.R. is on a mission to get Babe back, and he's going to fight for her. He's going to fight hard.
Adam: I know, I know. I know -- you -- you still have some doubts about J.R.
Krystal: Honey, he will do anything to get Babe back. And I have given him the power to do that.
Kendall: These are ridiculously cute. I love these! They're adorable.
Zach: They're cute, and I know it's early, but I -- I love shopping for clothing.
Kendall: You do, right?
Zach: That's right.
Kendall: Honestly, it's -- it's never too early to start buying things for the baby. I love it. Um -- I got to tell you -- put these right here. I actually started to think of some names.
Zach: Yeah? I have, too.
Kendall: You have?
Zach: I was thinking 'Hammer' for a boy, and maybe -- I don't know -- Scooter for a girl?
Kendall: That's not -- don't make fun of Spike. That's not cool -- I was -- hammer -- thinking for a boy we would would call him Zachary Ethan.
Kendall: And if it's girl, I'd like to call her Amelia Bianca. What's wrong? Is something wrong? Hmm. Oh.
[Zach leans forward and kisses Kendall]
Ryan: Annie loves me?
Jonathan: She told me.
Ryan: Look, I know that you want us to be happy together, but if you're --
Jonathan: If I'm -- no, hey -- She's in love with you.
Ryan: Annie's in love with me? She loves me? This is big. This -- it's huge. Now I just got to show her that I'm worthy.
Babe: I just have to find a custody solution with J.R. to keep him from spilling what he knows.
Bianca: I hate to be negative about this, but you know J.R. If I were you, I would be prepared, because that secret is bound to come out.
Josh: What'd you do, follow me?
Tad: Well, I had a couple of spare moments on my hands.
Josh: What, are you still sniffing around that blackmail secret? Well, you know something? Don't give it up.
Tad: Why? You got something you're just aching to say?
Josh: Not from me. But I hope to God you dig it up, because it's the only way Babe's going to be free of J.R.
Krystal: What I've done -- God.
Adam: Krystal, you can tell me anything. Anything. Remember our pact? Always the truth. Come on, come on. It's going to be all right.
Krystal: I -- I made a mistake. And what's worse is I laid it on my own daughter, as if she hasn't gone through enough pain already. I have forced her to make decisions that she shouldn't have had to make. I never wanted to hurt her. Or you.
Adam: Nah. I'm still standing.
Krystal: I love you. Our moonshine marriage and all -- our -- our family.
Adam: What have you done, Krystal? What have you done?
Krystal: You know when Bianca went off on J.R. about blackmail? Remember?
Krystal: You wanted to know what it was all about.
Krystal: J.R. and I lied. I know, I know. No more lies. But -- I mean, the truth -- it's -- how could I look in my dear husband's eyes and just say the words? J.R. was using me to blackmail Babe. The secret wasn't hers. It's mine.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Annie (to Ryan as he presents her with a beautiful diamond ring): You didn't.
J.R. (to Babe): You have to come with me.
Babe: Why, what happened?
J.R.: Your mother is about to decimate her life.
Krystal (to Adam): Tad doesn't just know my secret, he's a part of it.
