Donovan: I'm sorry, sir, this is a private session.

Ryan: Not anymore. Kendall, what the hell do you think you're doing with my son?

Joe: I'm sorry, Zach. We did everything we could. It wasn't enough. We lost Ian.

[Joe's voice echoes]

Zach: Don't.

Josh: Listen, I know the waiting sucks.

Zach: You have no idea.

Josh: It shouldn't be too much longer now.

Ryan: Hey. Hey, little guy. Daddy is so happy to see you, you have no idea.

Donovan: I'm Dr. Hilliard. I was just getting to know your son --

Ryan: Kendall, are you crazy?

Kendall: Don't -- don't freak out, Ryan, ok? Everything is fine -- see? See? Dr. Hilliard thinks that he can help Spike.

Ryan: Do you have any idea how worried everybody is? Spike is barely out of intensive care. He's not supposed to be out of the hospital yet.

Kendall: Ok, ok, would you calm down and let me explain everything? Wait a minute, wait a minute -- what are you doing?

Ryan: Shh.

Kendall: Ryan --

Ryan: Shh, shh, shh.

Kendall: Give him back to me. Give him back -- Ryan.

Ryan: Not a chance.

Joe: They're halfway through the surgery.

Zach: How's he doing?

Joe: Ian's holding his own. How about you? Any word about Kendall?

Zach: No.

Kendall: Ryan, you can't just take him from me.

Ryan: But you can? Spike is coming with me, and we are going back to the hospital, where he belongs right now.

Kendall: No, but we're -- we're not finished here, Ryan.

Ryan: We don't have time to argue about this, Kendall.

Kendall: Oh, ok, we don't have time to help my son?

Ryan: He is not the one that needs help. Ok? Ian has had a brain hemorrhage. He's in surgery.

Kendall: Oh, my God. Oh, my God -- Ian. When? When? Why -- why -- why didn't anyone tell me sooner?

Ryan: Well, we tried, but your cell is turned off, Kendall.

Kendall: My baby. My baby needs surgery. He -- he's too fragile. They can't do this to him again.

Ryan: Kendall, Kendall, Kendall? He's already in surgery.

Kendall: Ok. I have to go. I have -- I have to --

Ryan: Yes, yes, you should go.

Kendall: I got to get to the hospital right now.

Ryan: Go to the hospital. Spike and I will be right behind you, ok?

Kendall: Uh -- yeah.

Ryan: It's ok.

Kendall: Ok. Ok.

Ryan: Yeah. All right. Oh, it's ok. It's ok, Daddy's here now. Daddy's here, and I know that it's no fun being at the hospital -- I know that, I really do, but I want to get you out of there as soon as possible, too, but we got to go. We got to go back there right now and make sure that everything's ok.

Donovan: I'm -- I'm very sorry about Spike's little brother. If there's anything I can do, please let me know.

Ryan: What is your game? What did you tell Kendall that you could do for Spike -- what?

Donovan: There's no games. I told Kendall I would do what I could to try to help your son, and I believe I can help him. I have developed my own diagnostic methods to deal with certain conditions and diseases.

Ryan: Ok. Well, good -- "developed," huh? How?

Donovan: You are welcome to look at the research and the clinical trials that I've conducted. In fact, I would encourage you to do so.

Ryan: And why Spike? Why contact Kendall out of nowhere?

Donovan: I was referred to the case.

Ryan: And you thought it was ok to yank my son out of the hospital and meet Kendall here on the sly? I mean, maybe it was easier to sell your methods on a woman who was severely sleep-deprived and the mother of two sick children.

Donovan: I assure you, I was unaware that Kendall was bringing Spike here before he was discharged. Please, if you will allow me to walk you through the plans I have for Spike, I'm sure you will feel a lot better about this.

Ryan: You are not going to lay a finger on my son.

Tad: Kendall and Spike are both fine. They're on their way back to the hospital.

Joe: Hmm.

Josh: Did Ryan's text say anything about that doctor?

Tad: No. But his name is Donovan Hilliard, and we were able to track him through Kendall's cell phone records.

Joe: Could I have a minute to talk to you, please?

Tad: Yeah, sure.

Joe: Yeah -- good.

Tad: You need anything else, you call me, ok?

Zach: Ok. Hmm.

Lily: I brought the files you requested.

Zach: I can't look at those right now.

Josh: I'll take those.

Zach: Ahem.

Lily: I understand -- I don't like hospitals, either. They remind me of Terry after he tried to hurt me, and I don't like thinking about that.

Zach: I don't blame you.

Lily: No one at work understands why you would want your work brought to the hospital, but I understand. When I'm upset or scared, I like to focus on something else, like numbers. Do you have a closet you could go to?

Zach: No, I wish I did, but I don't. But it helps. When -- when things get too much, the work helps. Thanks for bringing that, Lily.

Joe: It's a good thing you found Kendall when you did. I didn't know how much more Zach could take.

Tad: I can only imagine. Having one child in surgery and not knowing where the other one is? That's a special kind of hell, isn't it? Made me think of Kate.

Joe: Hmm.

Tad: And grateful for J.R., Jenny, and Jamie.

Jamie: Hey.

Joe: Hmm.

Tad: That's weird.

Jamie: What?

Tad: No, not you. No, no, no, it's just I -- conversation with -- what are you doing here? I thought it was your day off.

Joe: I called him.

Jamie: Have you told him yet?

Joe: Nope -- waiting for you.

Tad: Somebody clue me in. What is it, a pony?

Joe: Jake contacted me about a wonderful opportunity. Your brother's heading up a new AIDS project in Africa.

Tad: Well, that's great.

Joe: Mm-hmm.

Jamie: Yeah, and there is an opening for one med student. Uncle Jake offered it to me.

Joe: And if Jamie wants it, he will have to leave by the end of this week.

Tad: So, do you want it?

Jamie: It is an amazing experience, and there's no problem taking a leave from med school. But I did want to run it by you first. What do you think?

Tad: What do I think? I think I don't want you to go.

Babe: Amanda, hey, I've got the -- the shipping warehouse in Miami on line three. Can you take it and update them on the schedule?

Amanda: Yeah, I'm on it.

Babe: Thanks. I've got a call I need to take. Yes, hi. Fusion, this is Babe Carey. Uh-huh, yes, I am handling all the PR at the moment. Sure.

Amanda: All right.

Babe: Of course. We'd love to get you a promo for Fusion Green. How many stores are we talking about?

Amanda: Hey. What are you, a voyeur now?

Babe: Ok, and --

J.R.: No, I came to talk to Babe, but I thought I'd take in some of the action first. She seems to be running a tight ship.

Amanda: She has been so amazing since Kendall and Greenlee are out of commission.

J.R.: I'll tell you what -- I don't want to interrupt, ok?

Amanda: No, no, no, come on. Stick around. I'm sure she could use a break. Hey.

Babe: All right, thanks.

Amanda: We have got company.

Babe: Hi. Hey, what -- what are you doing here? Looking for a job?

J.R.: Oh, with you as my boss? I don't think I'd keep up with you.

Babe: Yeah, I'd whip you into shape real quick.

J.R.: I don't doubt it. Actually, I came to talk about Little Adam.

Babe: Why, is something wrong?

J.R.: No, no, no, everything's fine. I wanted to take the yacht out for an overnight trip with Amanda, and I thought it'd be fun if Little Adam came along.

Amanda: Oh, that would be fun. It's like a slumber party at sea.

J.R.: Yeah.

Babe: Yeah, that sounds like fun. It's just he's been sleepwalking a little bit lately and it'd kind of make me nervous if he was out there on the water at night.

J.R.: He'll be fine. I'll tell you what -- I'll put a life jacket on him when I put him to bed.

Babe: J.R., he did fall in the pool -- remember? It's not funny.

Amanda: You know what? So what -- you know what? Maybe some other time, right?

J.R.: Then how about a day trip? I won't take my eyes off Little Adam the entire time.

Babe: And you'll have him home by dinner?

J.R.: Done.

Babe: Ok, then, it sounds like fun. Um -- bon voyage, I guess.

Amanda: Wow!

[Babe chuckles]

Amanda: Either I have entered the Twilight Zone or you two have seriously dialed it down a notch.

J.R.: Yeah.

[Man whistles]

Man: Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to my soon-to-be superstar client, the fierce, the fabulous, the new-and-improved Ava Benton.

Ava: Whoo!

[Ava chuckles]

Ava: Yeah!

Man: Mm-hmm.

Ava: Work it.

Amanda: Is that Paris Hilton or a pole dancer?

Babe: Is there a difference?

Ava: So, come on, tell me -- am I fabulous or am I fabulous?

Man: You're fabulous.

Ava: I know -- oh.

Amanda: That's one word for it.

Ava: Oh, my God, guys. I am going to be so busy. Andy's got me, like, photo shoots and interviews lined up and two movie auditions.

J.R.: Oh, yeah? For what?

Ava: Well, they are remakes of classics, like "Last Tango in --"

Andy: "Paramus."

Ava: "Paramus."

Andy: Right.

Ava: And "From Here to Ecstasy."

Babe: Oh, my God.

Andy: Yeah, I know, right? Sky is the limit with this kid. Now, who do I need to speak to about Ava's schedule? If we're going to get you that star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, got to get cracking.

Ava: Hmm.

Andy: Mr. Fusion, I presume.

Babe: Ms., actually. I'm in charge at the moment. I would "love" to talk about the face of Fusion's career with you.

Andy: Yeah, actually, about that -- the whole "Face of Fusion" thing. It's cute -- it's limiting.

Babe: Hmm. Mm-hmm, so you're thinking something bigger, brighter?

Andy: Exactly. If I'm going to catapult this kid to mega-stardom, got to broaden the range, right?

Amanda: Ahem.

Babe: Well, I'm -- I'm sorry. I didn't get your name.

Andy: Oh. Andy Conway.

Babe: Uh -- Andy, yes. Well, as far as I can see, the only thing being catapulted here is you.

Andy: Hmm.

Babe: Hmm.

Andy: Ava and I have a legal contract.

Babe: Oh, really? Mind if I see it?

Babe: Oops.

Ava: Excuse me! What are you doing? You can't just tear this up!

Babe: Oh, I can -- and I just did.

Tad: Don't get the wrong idea now, all right? I would never want to stand in the way of something that you really wanted.

Jamie: I know that. I'm asking your opinion, not your permission.

Tad: Well, my -- selfishly, my opinion is I would just rather have you with me. I mean, this family has taken a lot of hits in the last year, with Kate and Dixie.

Jamie: I know.

Tad: Sue me. Your old man would just rather have you here.

Joe: I feel the same way, especially now that Jenny's part of our lives. You know, that little girl has begun to heal a lot of old wounds.

Tad: And hearts.

Joe: But, on the other hand, this AIDS project is the opportunity of a lifetime. Do you a lot of good, Jamie. And the experience would help you grow immensely as a doctor.

[Pager beeps]

Joe: Hmm. Hmm -- you'll have to excuse me. Duty calls. Whatever your decision, you have my support.

Jamie: Thanks, Grandpa.

Tad: Thanks, Pop.

[Tad chuckles]

Tad: Why do I feel like we've been left alone in the principal's office?

Jamie: You guys are always going to be more important than my career. Now, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but so is watching my little sister grow up. I'm staying.

Tad: Just like that?

Jamie: What -- now you're disappointed?

Tad: No. Never. I just -- are you sure?

Jamie: I'm positive. You guys are my home. Why would I want to be anywhere else?

Zach: Thanks again for bringing it, both you guys.

Josh: I'll field these calls and be back as soon as I've finished with them. You need anything else?

Zach: I'm good.

Josh: All right. You want a ride to the office?

Lily: I brought you something else. It's for Ian. It was my favorite book when I was a little girl. But because the pictures have red in it, my mom had to hide them from me when she read it. But this copy has no red, because I custom-made it online. That way, I can read it to Ian when he gets out of the hospital.

Zach: He'll love it, thank you.

Lily: I'll take the ride to the office now.

Josh: See you later.

Zach: Ok. "The littlest bird peers over the nest. 'What if I fall?' And mama bird says, 'You'll fly when you're ready. You'll fly before long. You're little, my son, but you are oh so strong.'" You are little, but you are strong.

Kendall: How's Ian?

Zach: We don't know anything yet. He's still in surgery.

Kendall: I'm sorry, Zach. I never -- I never would've left if I had any idea that this -- that -- that this was going to happen. I -- I wouldn't. And I'm sorry that I didn't tell you I was going to see Dr. Hilliard, but I knew that if I did, you and Ryan would try to stop me, and I couldn't take that chance. Please, Zach, say something.

Zach: Ok. While you were gone, our little boy could've died.

Nurse: Doctor?

Joe: Got it.

Ryan: Joe.

Joe: Hey, yeah?

Ryan: Hey, Joe, look. Kendall took Spike out of the hospital to some doctor that I don't know or I don't trust, and I don't know what he did to him, and I need him -- Spike to be checked out right now, ok?

Joe: Ok, all right.

Ryan: All right.

Joe: All right. You take it easy, and we'll have a look.

Ryan: No, I don't need to take it easy. I will take it easy when I know that my son is all right, so please.

Zach: How is he?

Kendall: Is Ian ok?

Dr. Delano: Ian made it through the surgery.

Zach: So now what?

Dr. Delano: Well, Ian will be in recovery for a while, and during that time, we need to limit any kind of stimulation.

Kendall: Why? What --

Zach: What --

Kendall: What do you mean?

Dr. Delano: Because Ian is so young, his neurological system isn't fully developed. It's still very raw and extremely sensitive after the brain hemorrhage.

Zach: Meaning what?

Dr. Delano: That until I tell you otherwise, you need to stay on this side of the glass.

Kendall: We -- we can't even talk to him?

Dr. Delano: Not yet -- it would be too much. He'll be in an incubator instead of the warmer. Now, concentrate on the good. He made it through the procedure -- that, in itself, is a huge feat.

Ava: This is completely bogus! You don't own me!

Babe: Actually, Fusion does. Amanda, can you please take care of Ava?

Ava: Wait, I am not a dog!

Babe: Just calm her down. I've got this guy covered.

Amanda: You want to help me here?

J.R.: Are you kidding? It's just getting good.

Andy: For the record, you can't just go tearing up legal contracts, because you feel like it.

Babe: Legal contracts, huh? You want to talk legal contracts? Why not? Let's do it. Let's see here. Um -- oh -- whoo! Looky here. Ah. Why don't you check this one out? Legal contract right there. Black and white. Your client's signature, along with Kendall and Greenlee's, co-owners of this company, so I hate to disappoint, but Fusion controls all rights to Ava when it comes to modeling, interviews, performances, and cameos in softcore porn.

Andy: My clients do not do porn.

Babe: Sure they don't.

Andy: Sweetie, come on. I mean, can't we come to some sort of compromise?

Babe: I know guys like you. Guys who take advantage of young girls like Ava, girls that want to be someone. But I've got news for you -- Ava is already someone, and she doesn't need you when she has us.

Andy: Well, I think that's up to Ava to decide, don't you?

Babe: Oh, really? I don't think so, not according to this.

Andy: So, what? That's it? There's no -- no give or take?

Babe: Oh, we could do a little give and take if you want. I could -- oh -- I could give you some samples, and you could take them on to the elevator.

Ava: Ok, could we not just talk about this a second?

Babe: No, we can't! Get out.

Amanda: Buh-bye now.

Ava: Oh -- wait, Andy, you can't just leave. Don't listen to her.

Andy: Ava, it ain't worth the grief.

Ava: But I thought I was the next big thing. What happened to that? Oh! You know what? This is un-freaking-believable! What are you trying to do, ruin my life?

J.R.: No, I think it's called saving your ass!

Babe: You can either stay here and be the face of Fusion, or you can follow out that sleaze and be the next centerfold in "Smut" magazine. Your choice.

Jamie: I've put off med school long enough.

Tad: True.

Jamie: And if I take another leave, I'll just be that really creepy old guy at graduation.

Tad: God forbid. That guy never gets lucky with chicks.

Jamie: Definitely not.

Tad: You're a Martin. We certainly can't have that. You know another thing we can't have? Is you giving up on your dream.

Jamie: Look, my dream is to become a doctor. I'm not giving up on anything, Dad.

Tad: Are you sure you're my son? Because, God, you are the worst liar.

Jamie: Huh.

Tad: And I'm a terrible father. Would you look me in the eye and answer a question honestly? The bottom of your heart -- do you want in on your uncle's project?

Jamie: It does sound pretty incredible.

Tad: Then go. Don't ever let anyone -- anyone ever stand in the way of the things you want, the things you dream about. Especially me.

Jamie: But -- well, what about you guys? And Jenny -- I'd hate to miss out on everything.

Tad: Oh, you're not going to miss out on that much. All right, that's not true, either. But you know, we'll just -- well, you know, we're going to be here when you come back. All of us. And in the meantime, the world's a much smaller place than it used to be. You know, cell phones and the interweb.

Jamie: Are you sure?

Tad: Yeah. You've put your life on hold so many times. And always for other people. And I could not be prouder of you.

Jamie: Thanks.

Tad: I'm sorry I asked you to stay.

Jamie: Huh. Hey, I'd rather have you want me to stay than want me to leave.

Tad: Well, I guess that makes me the father of the year. So -- want to hug it out?

[Tad chuckles]

Jamie: I would like that. On the condition you never say "hug it out" again.

Tad: Now you're just asking for the impossible.

Zach: "He ruffles his feathers and puffs up his chest. Mama bird says, 'You can just do your best.' And the littlest bird looks up to the sky. 'Please, oh, please, allow me to fly.' And mama bird says, 'Don't look to the blue. Because all that you need is inside of you.'"

Joe: Everything looks good.

Ryan: Yeah?

Joe: Yeah. We, no harm was come to him while he was away from the hospital.

[Ryan sighs]

Ryan: Thank God. Hey, I -- I'm really sorry that I kind of went off on you a little bit. I just -- I was really scared. I didn't know, you know, what happened, and --

Joe: You're a father. You don't have to explain yourself to me.

Ryan: Thanks, Joe. Thank you. Hey, is there any way that we could just get some security here on Spike's room?

Joe: Well, we could do that. But security can't stop a mother from taking her own child. I suggest you talk to Kendall. Hmm?

Ryan: Right.

Joe: Hello, Jonathan.

Jonathan: Hey, Joe. Is Spike --

Joe: He -- he's just fine.

Jonathan: All right.

Ryan: Hey. How are you doing?

Jonathan: What happened?

Ryan: What happened? Some doctor contacted Kendall saying that he could -- that he could help him.

Jonathan: Help him? Help him? Help him how? What are you talking --

Ryan: I don't know. I don't know how. He's some sort of alternative medicine guru or something. I didn't have time to listen to his pitch.

Jonathan: Did you meet him?

Ryan: Yeah, I met him. Kendall took Spike out of the hospital to go see this guy.

Jonathan: What? What?

Ryan: I don't know how to handle her right now, Jonathan. I think she's really losing it. She honestly believes that there's a cure for what everybody is telling us is incurable.

Jonathan: Ok, ok. Ok, what do you believe?

Ryan: I don't know what I believe. I mean, I'm open to options, for Spike to hear again on his own without surgery. Obviously, I would do anything. But to take him out of the hospital before he's ready -- I mean, Kendall crossed a line here.

Jonathan: Ok, ok. The important thing here is that Spike's all right.

Ryan: Yeah. He looks ok, right?

Jonathan: He looks just fine.

Ryan: Yeah.

Jonathan: It's his daddy that I'm worried about.

Ryan: I'm fine. All right? All my focus and all my concern is for Spike right now. And if Spike is ok, then I'm ok.

Babe: Now do you see why I had to throw the guy out?

Amanda: These are the manager's bigtime success stories? I mean, think about what happened to the girls he didn't help out.

J.R.: Two-for-one lap dances on Locust Street?

Ava: Ok, ok, I get it. I'm a total tool for believing anything he said.

Babe: No, you're not, but you are new at this, and you do need to be careful.

J.R.: Is this the new promo?

Amanda: Yeah, you should check it out.

Ava: Ok, so, Andy was a total sketch, but is that the deal now? I can't trust anyone?

Babe: No, you can trust us.

[Fusion promo music plays]

Babe: And you may not want to believe it, but we do want to help you. We don't want to hold you back or tie you to Fusion forever.

Amanda: You could have an amazing career on top of what you do here.

Ava: So I can still be famous? Like, do movies and stuff?

Babe: Yes, of course, you can. You just got to make sure you do the right ones.

Amanda: And the same goes with people. The more high-profile you get, the more Andys are going to be knocking on your door.

Babe: Which is why you'll need someone to run interference, to weed out all the sketchballs.

Ava: Like a manager.

Babe: Yeah, but more like a friend-ager.

Ava: A what?

Babe: A friend-ager -- someone to look out for you.

Amanda: Like who?

Babe: Like you?

Amanda: Huh. Me?

Ava: But --

Amanda: Hold on. I didn't sign up for this.

Ava: Wait, wait -- I don't need a babysitter. I don't want Amanda holding my hand as I walk down the street.

Babe: It's not a babysitter. She'll -- she'll just be with you as -- like an escort when you're out in public. It -- you really are the right person for the job.

Amanda: And that's because?

Babe: Because you work at Fusion, and -- oh, and, even more importantly, you guys both live at Wildwind together. You'll always be going home to the same place. It's perfect.

J.R.: I've heard worse ideas.

Ava: Yeah, well, I haven't.

Babe: Come on. You would be great. I mean -- and you're a good friend, and you're pretty, and I know --

Amanda: Now you're sucking up.

Babe: It could be fun, come on.

Amanda: Yeah. She gets to be famous, I get to fend off the pervs and the users. Fun, fun, fun.

[Jamie sighs]

Josh: Hey. I hear you're Africa-bound.

Jamie: Wow, news travels fast around here.

Josh: Jeff told me. Congratulations. It sounds like a cool project.

Jamie: Thanks. I'm pretty stoked.

Josh: Joe must be pretty excited, too.

Jamie: Yeah, everyone's been really cool. I don't think I'd be going otherwise.

Josh: Uh -- good luck. It's for a good cause. And now that you got your family onboard --

Jamie: They're your family, too, you know.

Josh: Not the same.

Jamie: Well, they could be. And we could be. Look, I know that things have never been entirely cool with us. But in the "I've got your back" department, we Martins pretty much have the market cornered.

Josh: Yeah, well, Erica, Kendall, and Bianca aren't so bad, either.

Jamie: It's true. But you could always use backup, right? My dad, our grandparents -- they're good people, Josh.

Josh: Yeah, well, I'll take your word for it.

Jamie: Huh. Or you could find out for yourself. All I'm saying is, you might want to give them a chance.

Jonathan: I think you're on to something with that investment idea.

Ryan: Which one?

Jonathan: The one that researches cures for deafness. I looked into it.

Ryan: Really?

Jonathan: Yes. I made inquiries with the leading researchers at Stanford and Indiana University School of Medicine. The work that they're doing is groundbreaking.

Ryan: Is this your way of telling me that you accept my offer to help build the venture capital firm?

Jonathan: Yes, it is. I want to help you and Spike, and it seems like the best way to do it, you know?

Ryan: It sure does. Thank you, Jonathan. Your support means a lot to me.

Jonathan: Ryan, after everything that you've done for me, this doesn't even make a dent.

Zach: "With that, and the squeeze of his eyes, oh, so tight, the littlest bird makes his leap and takes flight."

Kendall: Zach, please talk to me.

Zach: I got nothing to say to you.

Kendall: Say anything. Ok, I -- I need you to understand why I left, ok? I had a chance to help Spike. I had to take it. It had nothing to do with Ian, nothing.

Zach: And that's the problem.

Kendall: You know I love Ian. I didn't know -- I didn't know that he was in trouble.

Zach: Our son was in trouble from the moment he was born. He's going to be in trouble for months to come.

Kendall: I know that. I would give my life for him --

Zach: Your life? So how could you disappear when his was hanging by a thread?

Joe: Did you move my things around?

Tad: Yep. My revenge. I thought it would make me feel better.

Joe: Did it?

Tad: No.

Joe: Jamie leave?

Tad: Yeah, he's -- ran off to tell his friends the good news, that he's -- he's going to Africa. I'm going to miss my boy, Pop.

Joe: Yeah. Well, we all will. But the fact that he decided to go must mean that you talked him into it. I'm proud of you.

Tad: Don't you dare. I was this close to arguing him out of it, you know? I saw how much he -- he wanted it, how much it meant to him. I just -- I couldn't do it, couldn't go through with it.

Joe: And I'm sure you wanted him not to go.

Tad: Desperately. I'm such a wimp when it comes to manipulating my children. I could probably use a couple of lessons from Adam Chandler.

[Joe chuckles]

Joe: Bite your tongue. Well, look -- you going to help me put these things back where they belong?

Tad: Yeah. Yeah. Ok.

Joe: You're a wonderful father, Tad. If you weren't, it would have been easy to let him go.

Tad: Yeah, well --

[Tad sniffles]

Tad: What do you expect? I learned from the best.

Amanda: All right. I'll do it, but don't expect me to be faux nice to any of the Andys out there. If the approach Ava, it's on.

Ava: Ahem.

Babe: I wouldn't expect anything less.

[Amanda sighs]

Babe: How about you? You cool with this?

Ava: Do I really have a choice?

Babe: Hmm.

Ava: No? Ok. I'm going to go enjoy the last minutes of freedom I have.

Babe: See ya.

Amanda: Well, sounds like Ava has got the right idea. I'm going to head home. You want to walk me out?

J.R.: The escort needs an escort? I would walk you anywhere.

Amanda: How about as far as the elevator?

Babe: Thank you again for agreeing to help me. I really appreciate it.

Amanda: Yeah, yeah. Fusion needs us, no matter how dirty the job.

[Amanda sighs]

J.R.: Hey --

Amanda: Mm-hmm?

J.R.: How much do you know about Ava's contract with Fusion?

Amanda: Not much. You'd have to ask Babe, why?

J.R.: Just curious.

Amanda: Bye.

J.R.: Bye.

Jamie: Ok.

Babe: We do have an elevator, you know.

Jamie: Yeah, I know, but I couldn't wait.

Babe: Really? That sounds exciting. What is it?
