Aidan: You know what -- some days, I really hate being a detective. What am I going to do about Lily?
Di: Lily's here, waiting.
Lily: Hey. Did you find her? Did you talk to my possible relative who's just like me?
Ava: So, you ready to get this party started?
Man: You know it, baby.
[Sitting in his car, Amanda examines Jamie's balance sheet on his laptop showing assets of over $21 million, liabilities of almost 6 million, and a net worth of almost $16 million dollars.]
Amanda: "James Martin, total net worth." Oh, my God. Oh.
[Amanda jumps when she hears Jamie coming]
Jamie: Are you going through my stuff?
Krystal: Where is Adam? You know, I am not going to sleep a wink until he walks through that door.
Babe: Adam can take care of himself, Mama, but you need to get some rest for this little girl.
Krystal: Would you just check one more time, honey? I mean, maybe he came home, and we just didn't hear him.
Babe: Ok, ok, ok, I'll check.
Krystal: Oh, wait, wait. Oh, that's Adam, that's Adam.
Krystal: "On jet, house is yours. Not back until you are gone. It's over."
Babe: Mama, come here. I'm so sorry.
[Having just sent the text message to Krystal, Tad holds Adam's cell phone when J.R. sneaks up behind him.]
J.R.: Yes or no? Did you hurt my dad?
Adam: Now, let's -- you better be ready to enjoy your last few minutes of ignorant bliss, Martin, because you're in for one very rude awakening, you and that -- that tramp wife of mine that you knocked up! You're -- you're finished! Do you hear me?
Janet: Yeah --
Adam: You're finished!
Janet: There, there, there. Adam, don't get so upset. There are plenty of other women who would love to be trapped with you.
Krystal: "It's over" -- doesn't get any clearer than that. Adam's gone, and we're done.
Babe: But we are not done. We are going to be fine just like always.
Krystal: Just -- would you just wake me up when this day is over? Oh.
Tad: What are you trying to ask me, J.R.? Did I dig a hole and stick Adam in it?
J.R.: Well, the person who ended up that way got exactly what he deserved. You had damn good reason to be angry, and you do now. But we're talking about my father.
Tad: I'm your father, too. Leave it alone.
J.R.: I never said that you didn't not have to hate my father, that you didn't have to fight back. I'm just saying nobody has to get hurt. I lost my mother, because I didn't do enough to protect her. I'm not going to lose my dad. Now, just -- just tell me that he's not in real danger.
Adam: Get your crazy hands off me.
Janet: You have been betrayed by your spouse. It's no wonder you have some trust issues. Lord knows I -- I do know where you're at. You and I are so much alike, Adam. Did you know, I don't think Krystal really deserves you? Oh. Before you got me out of that gruesome institution, I had pretty much given up on people, I had certainly almost completely given up on happiness, and then along came you. You offered me a chance at a whole new life, you offered me a life on a tropical island, starry days -- sunny days, starry nights, and you?
Adam: Huh. Do you honestly think that I would go from marrying a slut to running off with a psychopath?
Janet: Don't call me that, please. I am an excellent companion when I'm not forced to take those terrible medicines.
Adam: Yeah, I'm sure all those little green men find you enchanting.
Janet: There is no need to be hostile, especially when one's daughter is about to stick her beautiful neck out for you. What exactly is it that you want Amanda to do for you?
Adam: Well, if I tell you that, then that would spoil the surprise.
Janet: I do love surprises.
Adam: I'll give you a hint -- if Amanda does her job well, well, then you and I and all of us may end up in Paradise.
Adam: Yes. Um -- what is that lovely thing you're working on there?
Janet: It's a lanyard. The institution -- they call it a metaphor for cooperation. You see, individually, the strands -- they're not very much on their own, but when you braid them together, then the whole is so much stronger.
Adam: Oh. Is that so?
Amanda: When you took me to visit my mom at the sanitarium, she gave me a bunch of lanyards.
Jamie: So you're snooping through my car?
Amanda: She also gave me a list of the patients who just got released to send them the lanyards, and I thought maybe one of them might be hiding my mom, so I -- I couldn't find the list. I thought I'd retrace my steps.
Jamie: I still think Adam's connected to Janet's escape. But we don't have to worry about him anymore -- hmm.
Amanda: What does that mean? What did you do to Adam?
Tad: I give you my word, Adam is safe. He is comfortable, he has everything he needs. I just want him to stay there until after my baby is born. J.R., please.
Babe: Why are you just standing here in the hall?
Tad: Oh, we're not. I was just trying to check up on Krystal.
J.R.: Is she ok?
Babe: She is so stressed out. She hasn't even slept because of Adam, and now he just sent her this text message saying that their marriage is over, and he's not coming back into the house until she's gone. I mean, none of this can be good for the baby.
Tad: I doubt it. I mean, if it's one less reason she gets to stick around here, we can get her out of this mausoleum.
Babe: Yeah, well, good luck getting her to budge. Mama's in no mood.
Tad: If I have to use a forklift, this is her last night under this roof.
Babe: That means this is my last night in this house, too.
Aidan: The girl I saw is --
Lily: My possible biological relative, right?
Aidan: You look like her, ok? But in every other way, you two are completely different.
Lily: Well, didn't -- didn't you ask her if she likes equations or -- or the color purple or chess?
Aidan: I didn't really get the chance, no.
Lily: Well, then we might have more in common than you think. I -- I prepared a list of questions to ask you about her. Um -- is she -- could she be older than me or is she younger, and -- and how possibly can we be related exactly? Is she autistic, too?
Aidan: You know, I -- I wish I had all the answers. I went to look for her. I can't really tell you anything yet, but I'll stay on it, I promise. All right?
Di: Lily, you're really interested in this girl. Is it just fun and curiosity like solving a mystery, or is it something more important to you?
Lily: Well, my real family is very complicated. I have an adoptive father and a stepmother, and my adoptive father has an adopted son and a biological daughter, and I have three stepsiblings, and I live with my adoptive father's nephew.
Lily: And I know they all love me like we share the same DNA, but sometimes I -- I look at Kendall and Josh and Bianca and Erica, and I notice that in some ways, they look the same, and I wonder how -- how it would feel to have a biological connection with someone. And now I might, so it is really exciting and it's curiosity, but it's also a mystery. It might be the most mystery I'll ever solve.
Di: Well, Aidan will do everything he can to track her down.
Lily: Ok, well, I -- I'm going to get some more questions.
Aidan: Bye, Lily.
Aidan: I didn't just lie to Lily. I just haven't decided whether it's a good idea to tell her about Ava yet.
Di: Why? Who is this girl? What is Ava to Lily?
Aidan: Ava Benton is Lily's half sister and polar opposite.
Di: I -- so just forget about her, just write her off?
Aidan: This girl -- she's not an innocent young girl, all right? She's 20 years old, and she thinks she's -- she knows it all. She's got a smart mouth and an attitude the size of Africa. She's not a hooker, but she dresses like one, and she brings these men back to this -- this sleazy hotel called the Starlight Hotel off of Sansome Street. I offered to help her, all right, you know, get her a job, contact her mum? She's not interested. She thinks it's all a big game. She's had a couple of brushes with the law, she's nothing but trouble.
Di: I spent a year in prison. If Ava's bad, what does that make me?
Adam: I want you to braid these into a rope.
Janet: You know, Adam, you told me that we were two lost souls that could help each other. I am beginning to think that that was a ruse. I'm beginning to think that you're just a good-time Charlie who uses women and throws them away.
Adam: Well, of course, I'm using you. Your talents are limitless. Look, look -- braid.
Janet: I did always consider myself to be an artist. I think I would like to teach. I wonder if I could teach in the islands.
Adam: Oh, of course, of course, without question. And I want to apologize for being brusque earlier. I think it's the rejection and betrayal of my family that makes me -- it's sort of a defense mechanism.
Janet: Did you mean it when you said that I had talent?
Adam: Oh, absolutely. And I also meant it when I said that we could help each other. So you braid these, these sheets, into a rope, and you will be my savior. Yes. Here -- there we go.
Janet: I would be your savior?
Adam: Yes, and I will be your savior the minute we get out of here. All right?
Adam: Hey, what do you think?
Janet: I -- I think I must be blushing like a schoolgirl.
Adam: I need you, I need you, Janet -- I need your force. I need your creative force.
Janet: But I don't know, I don't know if I can do all this. I've never taken on a project so huge before.
Adam: Yeah, try -- try, just try, for me, for you, us. I have every confidence in you.
[Adam lowers himself out the window using the rope Janet braided with strips of fabric]
Janet: Oh, Adam, this is so exciting. I mean, it's like a real-life adventure -- I can't stand it. I mean, here you are, you're going to go out like this, like a -- oh, my God, it's like a knight, a knight in shining armor, off into battle on a big white horse -- a roan, perhaps.
Adam: Oh --
Janet: Are they white? Oh! I love this rope. I did such a nice job, didn't I? Now, then, be careful. Whatever you do, be careful.
Janet: You're so strong -- look at your arms. Your muscles are bulging right out!
Adam: Don't -- don't wait up.
Janet: I will be waiting.
Janet: Be careful, my knight!
Amanda: Wait! What went down between you and Adam?
Jamie: Adam has always come after my family, but when he burned down my father's house, he crossed a line.
Amanda: That's not an answer.
Jamie: My dad and I didn't start this fight, but we sure as hell will finish it. If Adam keeps coming after us, we'll keep coming right back.
Amanda: Adam Chandler doesn't just go after his enemies, he decimates them. If you and Tad want to stop him, then back off. Quit provoking Adam and maybe he'll calm down.
Jamie: Adam is plenty calm. Trust me.
Amanda: What did you do?
Jamie: Why do you care?
[Ava giggles as the man starts to remove his clothes]
Man: Huh, huh. Let's --
Ava: Wait, wait, wait, wait. First things first.
[When Ava hands the man something out of her pocket, he goes into the bathroom and shuts the door.]
[Ava takes that opportunity to go through the man's pockets]
Aidan: Ava is out for what -- for whatever she can get, all right? She's manipulative, she's -- she's greedy, she's hostile. You've never been anything like that.
Di: Actually, when I was 17, and I got off the bus in New York City, yeah, I may not have been hanging around in alleys and lifting men's wallets, but I was young, and I was broke, and I was totally alone. Aidan, you get tough out there, because you have to -- because the only one looking out for you is you.
Aidan: That was a long time ago, Di, ok? You got a whole new life now, a better one.
Di: Ok, you know, I don't even care if Ava's a -- a felon or a saint. If she's Lily's sister, doesn't Lily have a right to know? Who are you to decide for either one of them?
Aidan: I'm Lily's friend, all right? Lily is a fantastic young woman, and we can't ignore that she's different. I mean, look at Terry McDermott, right? Met Lily on a online chat room, lured her into -- into a cabin into the woods and almost raped her.
Di: I don't think that Terry -- I mean, come on. Ava is not as bad as that pervert Terry.
Aidan: Ava could hurt Lily and take advantage of her in many different ways. Besides, I asked -- I asked Ava if she wanted to come to Pine Valley, and she said no.
Di: But doesn't Lily deserve a say in whether she gets to know her own flesh and blood?
Aidan: This isn't about Lily's sister -- this is about yours.
Babe: If this is my last night here, I better start packing. I just don't know where to start -- there's so much stuff.
J.R.: We'll go through everything, divide it up.
Babe: Would you mind grabbing me a suitcase?
J.R.: Coconut Bistro.
Babe: Huh. Our trip to the islands.
J.R.: You won that limbo contest.
Babe: It was a beautiful trip. And maybe one day, one of us can take Little A back.
J.R.: What's this?
Babe: Nothing. It's from my first morning here.
J.R.: The rose that I woke you up with?
Babe: Yeah. Do you remember we went down for breakfast, and I told you to scoot so Pops and I could bond? I'm really sorry that I'm leaving you here alone with Adam in this house.
J.R.: I know that I made this for you. Would you mind if I kept it? I mean, that trip to the South of France was one of the happiest times of my life. I'd like to hang on to it for the memory.
Babe: J.R., what are you doing?
J.R.: Look, I've said yes to everything -- to the divorce, you leaving tomorrow. I'm even helping you pack, and I don't want to do any of this. It's taking everything for me not to just grab ahold of you and beg you not to go. So excuse me if for two seconds, you're seeing that it's ripping my heart out. I mean, my God, Babe -- what do you expect from me?
Krystal: Oh. Get out. I have nothing else to say to you.
Tad: Well, what happened? Yesterday, you were showing me the baby's sonogram, you let me feel her move. Now you want to show me the door -- what's going on?
Krystal: Tad, it has become increasingly clear that you did this.
Krystal: You are the reason that Adam left me.
Tad: Hang on -- wait, hang on just a second. There were two of us involved, all right? Now, I for one can say honestly I never meant to see your -- your marriage self-destruct.
Krystal: You planted yourself in this house -- in Adam's house, and you refused to leave, and I asked you to back off and let me handle my husband on my own --
Tad: "Planted" is not necessarily a fair word.
Krystal: But no, you pushed Adam, and you pushed him with your schemes and your stunts --
Tad: I wasn't trying to push Adam any --
Krystal: Until you finally pushed him away for good!
Tad: I'm only here, like I said, for the welfare of the baby -- for our baby.
Krystal: I had a chance with Adam. I saw that in his eyes, Tad. And you killed it.
Tad: How can you blame that on me? Why would you? You've known since the get-go that this baby was mine. And then finally when your back was in a corner so tight you had to tell the truth, maybe Adam could've forgiven you. Maybe he would have if you -- you hadn't lied to him for eight and a half months.
Krystal: Oh, please. If you are so big on the truth, Tad, then why didn't you just tell Adam that you slept with his wife? Maybe he would've figured it out himself, you self-righteous jackass! I can't stand the sight of you!
Tad: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Krystal: Get out of here!
Tad: Hey, Krystal!
Krystal: Get out! I was a fool to ever look at you! I was such a fool to look at you! I was just such a fool! I was such a -- I am such a fool.
Tad: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. You're not, you're not, you're not, here you go.
Krystal: Darn it.
Tad: No, you're not. No, you're not. No, you're not. Come here for a second.
Tad: You're ok.
[After throwing things at Tad, Krystal breaks down in tears. While Tad comforts her, Adam sadly watches them from the tunnel door.]
Krystal: Tad, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Tad: Hey, hey, whoa, whoa, whoa. No damage done, ok?
Krystal: You know, in my head, I blamed everybody for my marriage going bust, but in my heart, I know Adam left because of me.
Krystal: You know, ever since I got pregnant, I keep going over and over in my head about that night that we had together trying to figure out what possessed me.
Tad: Possess -- what? No, hang on -- possess you? Possess you? As I recall, there were two of us involved, and I could have opted out at any time myself.
Krystal: I should have said no, Tad. I should have. I came to your house. You were just out of your mind with pain and with grief and -- it should have been up to me to think straight for both of us, and I thought I was, I really did. I thought I had it all under control.
Tad: You're right. I was out of my mind with pain and grief. Thank God you were there. Because you talked me away from the edge, no matter what happens with Adam, with me, with this family, this baby. You remember one thing. You saw a good friend in need, and you did what you thought you had to.
Krystal: But I didn't think about the consequences. I was a fool. A fool. And I have been, ever since. I broke our marriage vows, and I still thought that Adam and I were invincible. I actually believed that if I fought hard enough to make Adam remember how much we loved each other, that he would come to terms with all this. Oh. Who was I fooling, huh? Adam left me, and he is not coming back.
Babe: You take the drawing. You take anything that you want. I know how hard this is, and I really appreciate your help. Do you mind if tomorrow morning, if I take Little A with me? We're -- we'll just be at the Valley Inn, and you can come by whenever you want until we work out the visitation schedule.
J.R.: What are we going to say to our son?
Babe: I guess just the truth, as simply as we can put it. That Mommy and Daddy aren't going to be living together anymore. That Little A is going to have two houses from now on. But we'll always be his mommy and daddy.
J.R.: Well, we can't say that to our little boy halfway out the door. It's not right. We have to tell him now.
[Janet hides when she hears a noise]
Janet: Oh. Adam -- oh, Adam, you made it back! I knew you would. Sweet freedom! What's the matter?
Adam: I thought I was going to have another daughter. A sweet baby girl. Made entirely of love. She was my hope and my chance -- a chance I thought I'd never have again. A chance to raise a child of mine from the instant it were born. Tad -- he stole my daughter. He stole my wife, he stole my life, he stole my future! And he's not going to get away with it! He planned this from the beginning -- with my whore of a wife. Well, Tad -- Tad's always suffering so. Poor Tad, poor Tad. Well, I'm going to show him what it's like, what it feels like, what is it like to lose everything.
Amanda: You said Adam may have helped my mom escape. Did you hurt him, Jamie? What if he took my mother somewhere? How are we going to find her? Is Adam still alive?
Jamie: Adam Chandler won't be causing any problems until after my baby sister is born.
Amanda: What if Krystal doesn't give birth for another week or more? My mom's meds are going to wear off, and she could go anywhere, do anything.
Jamie: What are you talking about? Adam is not the solution to finding Janet.
Amanda: Think, Jamie. Ok, my mom out there on her own -- no meds.
Jamie: Calm down. This is all going to be over in few days, all right?
Amanda: Did you kill him? Did -- did you drug him? Do you have him locked up somewhere? Where? Jamie, where is he?
Jamie: You need to let this go.
Amanda: You take me there. I need to see Adam now.
Jamie: Why? What is going on?
Amanda: I already told you -- because I need to make sure that nobody gets hurt. I need to look Adam in his eyes and ask him what he knows about my mother. And we are wasting time --
Amanda: The longer this goes on. I need to talk to him now.
Jamie: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just hold on.
Amanda: Ugh! God!
Janet: I did it. I got out.
Janet: Shh. This is our secret. I need your help. I'm counting on you.
Jamie: Did Adam help you escape?
Janet: Heavens, no. Adam Chandler is a mean man. I'd be too scared to go anywhere near him.
[Sitting in front of Adam as she talks into the phone, Janet winks at him conspiratorially.]
Di: You better believe this is about Dixie. Aidan, my mother gave me away the day I was born. I missed out on all those years with Dixie, because someone decided to keep us apart. And I finally got her back when someone else decided to keep us apart for good. Now, if I had had Dixie in my life when I was young -- her love and -- and her heart -- I mean, it's -- just don't you see a big part of why I got into such deep trouble is because I had no family to turn to?
Aidan: Yeah, but you never had a choice, though. All right? Ava does.
Aidan: But she chooses to be a liar, a thief, and a slut.
Di: Ok, you know what? You're talking about me, Aidan. That was me a few years ago. Sure, I was lucky. My mentor was first-class all the way. He pampered me and -- and dressed me up like a lady. But underneath that, he was a predator, Aidan. And Ava -- she may not be living large, but she is on the same road that I was. I mean, her best hope is to end up with a -- a lowlife like I did. And how long does that last for? How long until she runs into someone worse?
[Rock music plays as the man with Ava catches her and beats her unconscious]
Janet: When Adam came to the institution, he -- he made me fear for my life. He's the reason I had to run. But I was so scared, I didn't have any time to think, and I -- I don't know what to do. I didn't know where to go.
Jamie: Ok, listen to me. I need you to hang up and call 911. You have to turn yourself in.
Janet: To Derek Frye? No, thank you. I thought he was my friend. And then he turned against me just like everyone else did.
Jamie: I'm glad you trust me. But why call me and not Amanda?
Janet: I don't want Amanda involved in any of this. They're going to think it's her fault, and none of it's her fault. No, you know when the two of you came to the institution to -- to talk to me about the Satin Slayer, the two of you were so supportive, and you were so kind. And so I thought I could count on you to help me.
Jamie: Where are you?
Janet: All right, head East on Route 32. About 10 miles outside of town, you're going to find an old mill. Don't tell Amanda. I don't want her to worry.
Jamie: I'll be there soon.
Janet: Come now, Jamie -- alone. And I mean it. If you bring any cops or anybody else, I am out of here.
Jamie: All right, I'm on my way. I think we got a break.
Babe: So even though Mommy and Daddy are making a change, we'll always love you. Ok? I love you this much.
J.R.: And that won't ever change. And you're going to still have all of your favorite things. You're going to have your toys and your books and your dinosaurs.
Babe: Yeah. And you never have to be afraid, peanut, because we will always be here for you, ok? All right, sleepyhead. Should we tuck you back in?
Little Adam: No, I want to sleep here.
J.R.: I'm going to -- I'm going to go to bed.
Little Adam: Daddy, too.
Jamie: Amanda, Janet was very clear. If I bring anybody -- the cops, or even you -- she's going to run.
Amanda: Then I'll stay in the car, but I need to be there.
Jamie: If she sees you --
Amanda: I need to know that you found her and that she's safe and then everything will be ok. Once we find my mother, no one has to worry about Adam Chandler.
Adam: You were marvelous.
Janet: Huh. God, it comes right back to you. It's like riding a bike. Oh, Adam, wait.
[Janet gives Adam a kiss on the cheek]
Janet: It's for luck.
Janet: Off you go. Oh.
[Adam leaves and closes the door]
Di: Lily is 18. She's a legal adult.
Aidan: Who's challenged in ways that other adults are not.
Di: She made her wishes pretty clear. She asked you to find Ava.
Aidan: You know what? You're right. Ok? It's not my call, is it? It's up to Jackson. He's Lily's father, so it's up to him to decide.
Di: All -- all I'm saying is is just don't blow off Lily and don't turn your back on her halfsister out there.
Aidan: Just drop it, ok?
[In the seedy motel room, Ava lies on the floor unconscious]
[Babe and J.R. lie in bed with their little boy between them]
Tad: Makes a little more real estate, don't it? Whether you know it or not -- whether you want me or not, you know you got me. Anytime, day or night. And Jamie and J.R., Babe.
Krystal: I guess this just wasn't exactly the picture that I had in mind.
Tad: Maybe -- ahem -- maybe it's not the family you had in mind, but it is still a family. And we love you. This baby is going to be loved.
Krystal: Just not by Adam.
Jamie: Why would Adam want to cause trouble for Janet?
Amanda: Adam is a dangerous man. My mom needs to be in a safe place.
Jamie: Hey, what's up with this guy? Why is he right on my tail?
Amanda: Oh -- oh, my God! What is his problem?
Jamie: Why the hell won't he just pass me?
[Amanda screams and tires screech as Adam pushes Jamie's car off the road]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Barbara (to Erica): Jack made love to me in your bed. There's nothing you can do to stop us.
Kendall (to Barbara): Want to bet?
Tad (to Krystal): Somebody ran Jamie and Amanda off the road. They rear-ended them.
Krystal: Is Jamie all right?
Tad: I don't know.
J.R. (to Babe): Why can't we just try this again?
