[Someone in the shadows loads a rifle with bullets]
[Zoe sighs as she walks around the empty "New Beginnings" stage]
Zoe: I went a little bit ahead of you -- I'm sorry.
Bianca: Oh, that's ok. That security guard always talks my ear off. You ok?
Zoe: I bet you're wondering why I wanted to stop here.
Bianca: I know exactly why -- because this is where you introduced Zoe to the world.
Hannah: What --
Josh: Whoa --
Hannah: The hell!
Josh: Sorry about that.
Hannah: Put those away. It's 9:04.
Lily: And 48 seconds.
Josh: I didn't get any on you, did I?
Hannah: If you ever come late again, you're fired. Let's go -- I've got a job for you.
Josh: You were kidding about me being four minutes late, right?
Josh: She wasn't kidding.
Lily: Four minutes and 48 seconds.
[In his office, Zach stares at a copy of the Pine Valley Bulletin sitting on his desk with a picture of his father on the front page next to the headline "No trial for Satin Slayer causes public outcry."]
Kendall: Hi. Hmm.
Zach: I thought you were going to Fusion this morning.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I heard it on the radio. Today's the day, and I am completely freaked out.
Babe: Mama? Hey, morning.
Krystal: Jenny? Did they find her? Tell me they got her away from Adam.
Babe: They haven't found her yet, Mama. I'm sorry.
Babe: But I do have some good news -- you're going to be released today, and we'll get you settled in the condo, and you know what we're going to do? We are going to set up Jenny's room so it's all ready and waiting for her. You'll be much more comfortable there.
Krystal: I don't want to leave here without my little girl.
Amanda: Is there any word on Jenny?
Jamie: My father has been out with the Coast Guard all night. And I don't know -- she could be anywhere.
Amanda: Jamie, I'm so sorry. I never thought that Adam would pull something like this.
Jamie: My father has been a wreck over losing Kate -- how sick is that to take another daughter away from him?
Amanda: Jamie, if I had known this, I --
Jamie: Amanda? My father is on the verge of losing everything, partly because of Adam, partly because of your mom -- and no matter how much you want to deny it, partly because of you.
Tad: Excuse me.
Officer: Mr. Martin?
Tad: Oh. Please, tell me you had better luck than I did.
Officer: I wish that I could, sir, but we've got every boat and plane and helicopter with radar, heat sensors --
Tad: I don't care. I don't give a rat's ass what you've got deployed out there! I don't care. The only thing I care about is we can't seem to find a 100-foot freakin' yacht! Man, I'm sorry, ok? I'm -- I'm -- I'm very sorry. But you got to understand -- my newborn baby girl is out there somewhere, under the loving, watchful eye of a raving lunatic. I'm begging you, just find the damn boat.
[Knock on door]
Adam: Go away. Whoever the hell you are. Just go -- I don't want any! Go away!
Erica: I'm not your son or your brother, Adam. I'm your favorite ex-wife. And I'm probably the only person on the planet who really understands how you're feeling, and I can help you through it. I'm not going away, Adam. You might as well open up.
Adam: Well, is there some sort of early morning social gathering I'm supposed to have known about? Maybe -- maybe my invitation got lost in the mail.
Erica: I know that Tad's baby is missing, Adam, and I'm --
[Car door closes]
Erica: Did you hear that?
Adam: Oh, for God's sake.
Lt. Perry: Mr. Chandler, I have a few questions I'd like to -- hello, Ms. Kane.
Erica: Hello, Lieutenant Perry. Is -- is there a problem?
Lt. Perry: I'm afraid that's between me and Mr. Chandler. Would you mind?
Erica: Do you mind? Adam doesn't mind. In fact, he just got through saying that I am welcome here any time at all -- didn't you, Adam?
Erica: He knows that I am the only friend he really has in the whole, wide world.
Adam: Yes, I have nothing to hide.
Lt. Perry: We have a sworn statement from a person claiming they saw Janet Dillon on your property recently. And this person also says that you admitted to helping Ms. Dillon escape that sanitarium.
Amanda: Jamie? Jamie, I was scared for my mother's life.
Jamie: My father hasn't slept or eaten, because he's been so scared for his innocent daughter's life. Krystal was so scared when she found out that her baby was gone that she actually had to be sedated, so do you want to come to me and talk about being scared?
Amanda: I hate that your sister was taken, ok? I wish that I could go back in time and stand up to Adam --
Amanda: When he threatened my mom.
Jamie: You are one of my best friends -- you should've come to me, or the cops or anybody, for that matter, than striking up a deal with Adam Chandler. Look, I think it's best if you leave. My father has been through enough, and the last thing that he needs to see is you here. Ok?
Officer: We're not going to give up, Mr. Martin.
Tad: What if we're wrong? I mean, there's no guarantee that Janet or Jenny is on the yacht. I mean, what if we go to the trouble of locating that boat and we're right back where we started -- with nothing.
Zach: My father's being transferred to a psychiatric hospital today -- and, no, you're not in danger.
Kendall: Ok, but what if he gets free somehow during the transfer?
Zach: Derek's a good cop. He's got his best men on it. But since I don't trust anybody -- except you and Myrtle and Spike -- I have my best men on it, too. He's not going to get to you -- I won't let him.
Kendall: Meaning what exactly, I saw how angry you were when you found out that Alex was faking insanity. You regretted not killing him when you had the chance. Now, promise me you won't go anywhere near your father today.
Bianca: Is it weird to be back?
Zoe: No -- it's wonderful. Of course, the perfectionist in me keeps replaying the whole interview over and over in my head. But I can't think of a single thing that I would change.
Bianca: Well, that's because there isn't anything to change. Everything you said came straight from the heart, and it was perfect. You were perfect.
Bianca: Oh, gosh -- you know, I forgot about this. It's for you. The PA outside gave it to me to pass on -- it just arrived.
Zoe: Here, overnight? Is it another surprise from my secret admirer?
Bianca: No, I wish I could take credit, but it must be from a fan who saw the show.
Zoe: Oh. Did I tell you how many e-mails I had when I got back to the loft last night? Mailbox completely full.
Zoe: And my phone messages -- "You have 57 messages." Bianca 57?
Bianca: So? How was the response?
Zoe: Positive, mostly. Everyone wished me the best.
Bianca: Wow. I'm really happy for you.
Zoe: I'm pretty happy for me, too.
Zoe: And enough me talking about -- me. I'll let someone else talk about me for me.
Zoe: Who, I wonder, is my new secret admirer?
Zoe: It's from my father.
Krystal: Oh. Why did I let them give me that sedative?
Babe: At least your body got some rest. So, do you want me to pack this sweater or do you think you want to wear it? Mama?
Krystal: She was supposed to wear this when I brought her home.
Colby: She'll wear it soon, as soon as we get her. And she'll be the most stylin' kid in Pine Valley.
Krystal: What do you think she's wearing right now? That thin, little onesie that the hospital put on her?
Babe: No. Wherever she is, she is warm and she's safe, and she can't wait to see her mama. And Colby was right -- you're going to see her in that outfit before you know it.
Adam: It's easy to see why people point their finger at me, isn't it? Hmm? The breakup of my marriage, much more public than I would have hoped, Krystal's baby gone missing at the same time Janet Dillon breaks out of confinement. Well, it's easy to see why a few lowlifes would like to drag my name through this mess.
Lt. Perry: Are you saying that the witness who came forward lied about Ms. Dillon being on your property?
Adam: That's exactly what I'm saying. Janet Dillon doesn't need any assistance in stealing small people -- no. Her track record proves that.
Lt. Perry: Well, unfortunately, I'll need more proof than Ms. Dillon's track record to clear your name.
Lt. Perry: We have a warrant to search the estate.
Adam: All right -- by all means, clear my name. Be my guest.
Lt. Perry: Start through there. What's through there?
Adam: The library.
Lt. Perry: You, get the guys outside and check the grounds.
Adam: Be sure to check the top of the bookshelves -- that's where I keep all the babies I steal!
Erica: All right, Adam. You actually think you can get away with this?
Tad: Dixie? If you can -- if you can hear me, I need you.
Tad: I need your help because as desperate as I am to believe that everything is going to be ok, that it's going to work out, I can't seem to get beyond the desperate part. I don't know what to do. I mean, your dying wish was that I get to know this little girl, and I feel like I'm only halfway there, you know? I wonder if this is the way it was with you and Kate, you know? They -- they hand you a -- a beautiful baby, and you have just long enough with her to hold her and fall in love with her, try to imagine starting a life for her, and then they just -- they rip her away from you. I don't know if I can make it through this again. It was bad enough I had to -- to live through losing Kate. I can't endure the same nightmare all over again. So if you can hear me, give me the strength to make it through this, give me the strength for Jenny.
Officer: Mr. Martin? Mr. Martin, we've located the yacht.
Krystal: What if they never find her? What if Adam has Jenny hidden somewhere that we can't get to?
Babe: No, do not think like that.
Colby: I tried to convince my dad to give the baby back, but he wouldn't even admit that he took her.
Krystal: Oh, I know damn good and well that he took her, and I can prove it!
Babe: No, Mama. Listen to me -- you are not proving anything. Tad is going to prove it. Now, I didn't want to say anything, but they're working on a lead, and I'm not going to tell you what it is, because you'll just worry yourself to death over it, but the police are in on it. This is a good thing, and this whole nightmare, it's going to be over before we know it.
Amanda: I'm so sorry, Krystal. Please don't hate me. I swear we're going to find my mom, and you will get your baby back.
Krystal: Your mother? Janet has my baby?
Adam: If I were going to bust anybody out of that place, it would've been me, not that creature that stole my grandson.
Lt. Perry: Well, Ms. Dillon told a counselor that you befriended her in the institution.
Lt. Perry: Apparently, it took her by surprise.
Erica: She's not the only one.
Adam: You know, that woman offed her husband, my daughter's uncle, by sticking him in a freezer. Of course, I played nice -- I feared for my life.
Lt. Perry: Well, we haven't finished searching the grounds yet. I trust you'll stay put until we do?
Adam: No problem. Enjoy.
Erica: We're alone now, Adam.
Erica: You can be candid with me.
Adam: What makes you think I haven't been?
Erica: You loathe Krystal. I don't blame you -- so do I. She's cheap, untrustworthy, and her kidnapping tart of a daughter is following in her tawdry footsteps.
Adam: Yes, yes, and you had the opportunity to get rid of both of them just after Babe's so-called murder. Hmm? All you had to do was tell the police that Krystal and Babe had committed insurance fraud, but no! No, you couldn't do that. You had to take some high road.
Erica: You and I are on the same side where it comes to Krystal and Babe.
Adam: Like hell we are! No, you're here for the same reason the cops are -- you want to pin that kidnapping on me. Now, get out!
Erica: Oh, don't you dare push me away, Adam Chandler. I am your last hope.
Bianca: I'm so sorry. Look, you -- you knew that he wouldn't understand.
Zoe: No, no, you should hear what he wrote. "Hello, Freddie. It's no secret I don't understand you. I don't think we've ever looked at life the same way, but I have followed your career and watched you make a name for yourself, even though it isn't the name that we gave you. I saw you today on that talk show. I wasn't happy about the way that you looked, but what really got to me were the things that you said."
Bianca: Don't do this. You already read it -- don't put yourself through it again.
Zoe: "Has it really been so awful? Have you really been unhappy your entire life? Am I the reason why? Because I treated you like a boy when you saw yourself as a girl? Your mother said something after the show that actually made sense. She told me to set 'boy' or 'girl' aside. You're our child, and it kills me to think that you've been in that much pain for so many years. So I want you to know I'm trying to understand. I won't promise you anything -- I can't. But I do hope one day I can love you for who you are now as much as I loved Freddie. I hope someday I can love my daughter."
Bianca: Oh, my God.
Zach: You ok?
Kendall: Hold on. Ah -- ho.
Kendall: Yeah -- huh. I should've passed on the extra waffle this morning.
Zach: Maybe our kid's trying to tell you something. "Relax, go home -- put your feet up."
Kendall: Nice try. Where were we? Oh, yeah, yeah --
Kendall: You were about to swear to me you wouldn't go anywhere near your father today.
Zach: A big part of me wants to be there. A bigger part wants to build a future with you and Spike and the little waffle-tosser in there. I'm not going to blow that, not for anybody.
Kendall: Thank you.
Zach: Hmm. You don't seem convinced.
Kendall: I am relieved, I am. I just -- I don't know. I can't -- I can't shake this feeling that Alexander has something up his sleeve. I am terrified that he's going to escape and he's going to come after us again, Zach. And I want to let it go, but I can't.
Hannah: I found an invoice for Belgrade Industries in the Bay Lea Manufacturing file. Go through these folders, put the correct paperwork inside. When you're done with this stack, I want you to go to the file cabinet, start on the next drawer.
Lily: Ok, but I didn't allot for all this work in my schedule today. Is there any way I can start this project tomorrow?
Hannah: Not you -- him.
Lily: You two might get loud -- I'll go to the closet.
Josh: This is administrative work, Hannah, for an administrative assistant.
Hannah: Until you prove you're worth more, you are my administrative assistant. Oh!
[When Hannah stumbles, Josh catches her]
Tad: There was nobody on it, just a skeletal crew that Adam had hired to throw us off the scent by taking a joyride.
Jamie: That's it -- I've had enough.
Tad: No, no. What -- where do you think you're going?
Jamie: I'm going to go make Adam talk.
Tad: No -- no, you're not. Listen, if you think you're going to go over there and beat him into submission, making him talk, you're not going to get what you want. It's taken me years, but I've learned that the hard way.
Jamie: Well, you have any better ideas?
Tad: Yeah. I spent the better part of the night trying to come up with ideas, ways to connect with Janet in case I was right and the yacht turned out to be a bust. I think we should appeal to her through the media.
Jamie: Wait a second. If you publicly accuse Janet of kidnapping, there's a chance we could never see Jenny again.
Tad: I didn't say anything about kidnapping. There's a better way to get to Janet.
Adam: Do you really think I bought that "old pals" act you gave Perry? We're anything but pals, Erica.
Erica: Well, you looked genuinely happy to see me when you opened the door.
Adam: Well, I knew you were up to something -- I wanted to see what it was. You have that gleam in your eye when you're on a mission. I was aware of that back in the Raising Kane days.
Erica: Yeah, you get a gleam in your eye, too, Adam, when you get what you want. I first noticed that at our second wedding.
Adam: Hmm. I'm surprised you could see anything through that veil, that black veil.
Erica: You remember.
Erica: Well, you say we aren't allies, but we are very much alike. Neither one of us will rest until we get what we want.
Erica: And we are both powers to be reckoned with when we are betrayed.
Adam: Well, thank you for that powerful observation. Good-bye.
Erica: And when you are hurt, your first instinct is to hurt back. I understand that -- I am the same way. But Tad didn't hurt you -- Krystal did. Marriage, family, loyalty, commitment -- these are empty words to Krystal.
Adam: And those words are sacred to you?
Erica: Krystal is a user. She used you, and she used Tad at his low point when his last hope of finding Kate had just died. Now, you and I -- we both know how that feels, don't we, Adam? We know exactly what that feels like -- the fear that we may never see our children again. Well, Krystal -- Krystal deserves it after what she did to Bianca. That is justice come full circle for her. But don't make Tad suffer this -- this heartache all over again. He didn't force Krystal to cheat on you -- she did that herself knowingly and willingly, and the best way to deal with Krystal is to be done with her. Don't drag an innocent baby into this. Give Tad back his daughter. Spit on Krystal and move on.
Krystal: I don't get it! Janet was supposed to be locked up for life. How did this happen?
Amanda: Adam! He is the one that busted my mom out of the sanitarium. He threatened her life if I didn't help him.
Krystal: Help him what -- take my baby girl?
Amanda: No, no! To get dirt on Jamie or Tad.
Krystal: And you went along with it? You kept your mouth shut long enough for them to take my baby!
Amanda: Krystal, but I didn't know that's what they were planning.
Babe: Mama, listen to me. Even if Janet does have Jenny -- and we don't even know if that's true -- she would never hurt her. As scary as it was for me in that cabin with her, she never hurt Little A.
Krystal: An escaped mental patient has my baby! She already tried to kill one of my daughters -- God knows what she's going to do to my baby!
Janet: What a wonderful life we are going to have. You and me, and Adam -- ooh! The three of us, we're going to have such a -- such a wonderful life. Huh.
Janet: Oh, yes.
Janet: Oh, yes. You know, he really -- he should've been here by now. Oh, if he disappoints us -- oh, ho, ho, ho. That's right -- if Adam Chandler disappoints us, he is going to regret it -- bigtime.
Adam: We're both fiery, passionate people. We've learned a lot about each other over the years. But you're wrong about this, Erica. Perhaps Tad's sob story has clouded your judgment, but I am not the villain here. I did not kidnap Tad's baby. I did not help Janet get out of the sanitarium. And the sooner you people recognize this and accept this, the better chance we'll have of finding that baby.
Erica: Stop lying to me, Adam. I'm here to help.
Adam: You're here to help Tad. So why don't you go help Tad and leave me alone?
Erica: Destroying Tad is not going to help you get over Krystal.
Adam: Thank you so much for coming by. Adios.
Adam: Well, Lieutenant, what have you found?
Lt. Perry: The place was clean --
Lt. Perry: But you knew that.
Adam: I have no secrets, no.
Lt. Perry: Well, plan on seeing more of me. And don't even think about leaving town.
Adam: Oh, wouldn't dream of it. And good luck. Keep us posted.
Babe: Amanda, maybe you should leave.
Amanda: I'm -- I'm so sorry.
Krystal: Oh, save your sorrys. I want my little girl back!
Amanda: Jamie, please, I -- I cannot take one more person going off on me.
Jamie: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. I have a way you can make this up to me, ok? My dad came up with a plan to pull your mom out of hiding. We need your help.
Hannah: These are $500 shoes I got three months ago. $500 shoes should last 50 years!
Hannah: You think this is funny?: Oh, I'm sorry.
Hannah: You -- you keep laughing, and I'm going to shove this heel down your esophagus.
Zach: I will never let my father near you. I let my guard down, and I won't let that happen again. Ok? Say you believe me.
Kendall: You're worried -- not about Alex, about me. I'm stressed, so now you're stressed.
Zach: I don't want you losing sleep over my father. Ok?
Kendall: Ok. Well, then I won't. I trust you, Zach. So I will forget about Alex and concentrate on our life together with our children, same as you.
Zach and Kendall: Mmm!
Kendall: Mmm. All right, I must -- I -- I --
Zach: Where are you going?
Kendall: I have -- what do you mean "Where am I going"? You practically tried to run me out before.
Zach: I'm fickle.
Kendall: Yeah, I know you are, but I have to go to Fusion, ok, so I can --
Kendall: Can you give me give me a kiss.
Kendall: Let me go now, in peace -- in peace.
[Jail cell door opens]
Derek: All right, Cambias, let's go -- moving day. We'll forward your mail to the psychiatric facility.
Officer: What's with the bear?
Derek: Slater left it for the old man. Every time I play it, I swear I can see him cringe.
Lily: This just arrived for you, Zach, from the mailroom.
[Zach takes a photo of Kendall out of the envelope in which she is wearing a satin collar with a needle aimed at her throat. Below it are the handwritten words, "See you again soon, son. Your Loving Father."
Erica: I thought you two were on your way to the airport.
Zoe: How could I leave Pine Valley without saying good-bye to one of my idols?
Bianca: And my sendoff last night left me wanting more.
Erica: Well, I can't say that I'm sorry.
Zoe: I'll go first since I'm more of the tin woman, and she's more of the scarecrow.
Zoe: Ms. Kane -- Erica -- you never really knew Zarf, but he was very big on synchronicity -- no coincidences. He believed that destiny brought him, and me, to Pine Valley, and every friend that I've made here -- and I count you as one of them -- and every difficult experience that I've had -- they've all led up to one defining moment, and that was your interview yesterday.
Erica: That was my honor.
Zoe: No, I don't think you realize how much you did for me. I'm free now. Zoe is finally free. And with the support of people like Bianca and Josh and Babe -- and you -- I was able to give a scared, lonely woman life. And I thank you.
Zoe: I wish you the very best, Ms. Kane -- Erica.
Erica: And I wish you all the best, Zoe.
Zoe: Thank you.
Erica: And you, scarecrow -- I think I'll miss you most of all.
Bianca: I love you, Mom.
Erica: I love you, too. So much.
Erica: How's my beautiful Miranda?
Bianca and Erica: Hello!
Erica: Hello, sweetheart! Thank you so much for coming to say good-bye.
Bianca: Can you say it in French, can you say "au revoir"?
Miranda: Au revoir.
Bianca: Oh, that was good.
Erica: Smart girl! Oh. Good-bye, my angel. Au revoir.
Colby: I promised Jenny I'd always take good care of her. But I couldn't convince my dad to give her back. I let her down.
Krystal: Honey, we both know that nothing and no one can stop Adam when he's got his mind set on something.
Krystal: Don't blame yourself. Ok? Honey? You took good care of Jenny when you brought her into this world, and you will again. Now, do me a favor and go to school, ok? Babe is going to look after me. Come here, baby.
Krystal: Jenny. My sweet baby. You just hang in there. You hang in there, you hear me? I'm going to find you.
Tad: Erica. Thank God you're here.
Erica: Did you find Janet?
Tad: No. I need a huge favor. I need to borrow your studio, some cameras, and a one-of-a-kind -- you.
Adam: [Disguised voice] Hello? Yes, this is Mr. Prince. Yeah, I -- I've been waiting for your call.
Adam: Yes, sir. Well, how does it feel thinking you're about to become a daddy? Well, your little baby girl is waiting for you right now -- yes, sir -- waiting for you to pick her up. Yep, well, it's 1334 Old Freeport Road. Yeah. It's a -- a bit of a hike, but it's going to be worth it, I can -- I can promise you that. Ok. Well, I'll meet you there, tonight. Bye.
Kendall: For -- for Zach. He's working late tonight.
Josh: No -- Zach's been gone a while. He took off not too long after you left.
Kendall: Where did he go?
Josh: I don't know.
Derek: Cambias, you forgot your teddy. Don't want to leave your little buddy behind.
[Muffled gunshots ring out as Alex writhes in pain]
Amanda: Babe, wait. I'm working with Tad and Jamie now, and they're going public, and if my mom sees it, I really think she's going to call.
Babe: I hope you're right.
Man: Five, four, three --
Erica: I come to you tonight to make an urgent appeal to someone I've known for a long time -- Janet Dillon. If you're watching this, Janet, I beg you -- call your daughter right away. It's extremely urgent. Amanda is in serious trouble and desperately needs your help. I know how much you love your daughter, Janet -- we've talked about what our children mean to us. Please, get in touch with Amanda now -- there's no time to waste.
Janet: What happened? What's wrong with my Amanda?
[Amanda's phone rings as someone knocks on Janet's door]
Amanda: Hello? Hello? Mom? Mom, is that you?
[Janet sets down her phone to answer the door]
Janet: Yes? May I help you?
Man: We're a little early. We just couldn't wait.
Janet: Early for what?
Woman: Oh, we came to take our new baby home. Huh.
[Adam opens his door and finds Krystal pointing a gun at him]
Krystal: Give me my baby or die.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Krystal (to Adam): I loved you. God forgive me for being such a fool.
Adam: No bigger fool than I.
Tad: Janet's about to give my baby away to a couple strangers.
Janet: You see how attached I am to her. Oh, I don't know how I'm going to part with this cupcake.
