Zach: Either you tell Ryan or I will.

Ryan: Well, he's right here, and he's listening.

Kendall: Don't look at me like that -- you don't even know what it is yet.

Annie: Maybe I should wait in the other room.

Kendall: No, no, don't, please.

Ryan: Would somebody please tell me what's going on?

Kendall: I went back to see Dr. Hilliard.

Ryan: Again?

Kendall: I couldn't let Spike's chance at a full recovery slip away.

Ryan: Somebody, please tell me that this is a joke.

Kendall: No, Ryan, you should be glad that I went back to see Dr. Hilliard. He agreed to help us.

Ryan: "Us"? Kendall, you did this behind my back, but you think that it's "us"?

Kendall: No, I'm -- I'm doing this -- I did it for Spike. I did this for Spike, ok? You'll thank me when he can hear again without surgery.

Ryan: Oh, that's right, because this guy's the miracle man, right? What's he going to do, exactly -- shake some rattles, maybe sprinkle mojo dust over Spike's crib?

Kendall: This is exactly why I didn't want him to get involved, Zach.

Ryan: Well, too bad, Kendall, because on Spike's birth certificate, it lists me as his father!

Kendall: Yes, I'm well aware of that, Ryan, I know.

Ryan: Except when it's inconvenient.

Kendall: You know what? All I did was get vitamins, vitamins from Dr. Hilliard, that's it.

Ryan: Vitamins?

Kendall: Yes.

Ryan: So these vitamins are going to make Spike hear again?

Kendall: No, they're -- they're just the beginning of his treatment to get him stronger, and they're completely harmless.

Ryan: I thought you trusted me to find another doctor, Kendall.

Kendall: Well, I believe in Dr. Hilliard.

Ryan: Yeah? You believed in Dr. Madden, too, and look where that got us.

Zach: Let's not dig that up again.

Annie: Ryan, where are you going?

Ryan: I'm going to get my son and take him the hell away from here.

Adam: So everything's in place? Good, good, that's very good. All right, I want updates. Yes. I don't care what time it is -- I live alone, you're not going to disturb anybody.

Singer: One, two, three

Singers: Let's get together we should get together

Adam: Ooh --

J.R.: What did you lose?

Amanda: Uh, what time is it?

J.R.: Who cares?

Amanda: Oh -- oh, that would be me. Hmm, I should go.

J.R.: You should, but you won't.

Amanda: J.R., I have a meeting with a potential Fusion distributor tonight, so I have to shower, change. I have to get gas -- I've been driving with the little thingy on E for two days.

J.R.: Wait a minute, I thought Greenlee and Kendall handled the accounts.

Amanda: Well, Kendall and Greenlee aren't exactly on their game lately, which means the rest of us have to step up, which means I can't show up to land a potential new client looking like I just got out of bed. Excuse me.

J.R.: Who would've known? Hey, maybe they're expecting that fresh-out-of-bed look. Oh, come on, Amanda. We're not the only ones that saw you and Ava in that hot photo.

Amanda: Oh --

J.R.: What? It's a compliment. That kiss was -- pure genius.

Amanda: Do you want to die?

J.R.: You have to admit it, Amanda. Ava's the power behind this new account -- and probably dozens of others -- and like it or hate it, Ava's the reason why Fusion's becoming a monster.

Amanda: You know what I don't get?

J.R.: Hmm?

Amanda: You claim to hate Ava, yet somehow you manage to work her into almost every conversation that we have lately. Tell me that that stupid picture didn't spawn some Amanda/Ava/J.R. sandwich fantasy? I'm serious, J.R., why are you suddenly so obsessed with her?

[Surf crashes]

Ava: Oh, my God, I have an idea. How about we stay here all night and, like, never go to sleep?

Jonathan: Ok.

Ava: No, we will, we will. We'll watch the water go back and forth, and every time it goes out, like, say, a foot, we'll go out there and -- huh? Huh? We could go out pretty deep, depending on how low it goes.

Jonathan: I think you're on to something. But how about you let me finish my report, and then we can come up with something together --

Ava: Boo.

Jonathan: Uh -- "boo"? Boo. Boo.

Ava: "Increase market share"? Boring. "Due diligence"? Blah, blah, blah.

Jonathan: "Blah, blah, blah."

Ava: No offense.

Jonathan: "Blah, blah, blah." None taken.

Ava: Hey, what's that other word that I like?

Jonathan: What, that? "Flip-over"?

Ava: "Flip-over," that's right. "Flip over" -- is it just me, or does that sound kinky?

Jonathan: I -- uh -- I think my work can wait.

Ava: I don't want to get you in trouble with your boss.

Jonathan: [Southern accent] Well, seeing as that my boss is my brother -- [Normal voice] I don't think it's going to be a problem.

Ava: Hmm. Pretty cool brother.

Jonathan: The best brother.

Ava: He's kind of your hero, right?

Jonathan: Well, hmm, he's more than "kind of." I mean, if it weren't for Ryan, I'd be dead.

Kendall: Where do you think you're going?

Ryan: Don't worry, Kendall, I'm not going to run off with him. Unlike you, I respect the fact that Spike has got two parents who need to know where he is and what he's up to.

Kendall: Ok, can you -- can you not leave like this, Ryan, please? Can you just -- can you not leave mad?

Ryan: We're going to the park, and if we decide to go anywhere else after that, I will let you know. Ok, where is his -- that book that he likes so much, the one with the big trucks? Do you know?

Zach: It's in his room.

Annie: Hey -- do you want me to go with you guys?

Ryan: No. I need to be alone with my son.

[Music plays]

Colby: Give me a drink, I am so thirsty.

[Colby coughs]

Colby: I cannot talk.

Sean: Guys, it was so dope.

Colby: Oh, my throat hurts.

Sean: That really was a kick-ass show tonight, guys, seriously.

Colby: Oh, you guys did this -- you hear that? Oh, I love when you guys did that, it was "so" good.

Dre: Yeah, you looked good dancing out there, Colby.

Colby: Oh, thank you

Ren: Oh, yeah. We need to get some of those -- what do you call those girls that they dance in the cages?

Corrina: Go-go dancers?

Colby: Hmm!

Dre: Oh, yeah, that could work.

Corrina: Oh, that could work in your dreams.

Colby: Oh!

Dre: I guess you're going to have to dance from the crowd.

Colby: No problem.

Krystal: Hey! I hope y'all like it spicy, because I don't know any other way to make chili.

Dre: Nice.

Krystal: Dig in.

Colby: Ay-yi-yi!

Tad: If jenny wakes up, you think your daughter would care for a bowl of chili?

Krystal: Yeah, if you're going to be changing her diaper later.

Tad: I'll get her some ice cream.

[Krystal laughs]

Colby: I don't know.

Adam: [As Stuart] Hello, everybody.

Colby: Hey! Oh -- Uncle Stuart, are you ok?

Adam: Well, yeah, I just -- I -- I picked kind of a bad night to work, because I didn't know you were having a party.

Krystal: No, no, no, this isn't a party, we just have some neighbors over for dinner. Come on in --

Colby: Yeah.

Krystal: Kick your shoes off and grab a bowl of heat, and get ready to hip-- hip-hop, yo!

Colby: Oh -- no, no, no, no --

Krystal: Yo! Yo, yo!

Colby: Tad, please control her.

Krystal: Yeah! What's wrong?

J.R.: That picture of you kissing Ava --

Amanda: Her molesting me.

J.R.: Is hot, no question.

Amanda: You are so not winning points here.

J.R.: Would you just let me finish? It's hot because you're in it.

Amanda: Ava's not exactly a troll.

J.R.: When I see Ava, I see dollar signs. When I see you, I'm not confused.

Amanda: So Ava equals dollar signs? What --

J.R.: Ava takes risks. She goes out there, she goes after it -- I like that. She demands to be seen, so, therefore, she is.

Amanda: Until she crashes and burns.

J.R.: She's done pretty good so far. She's turned Fusion around.

Amanda: No! Kendall, Greenlee, Babe, Annie, and Di turned Fusion around.

J.R.: Yeah, because they signed Ava.

Amanda: You know -- ok, fine. Ava's the second coming -- whatever. What does that have to do with you?

J.R.: Only everything. Your frenemy, Ava, is going to make me independently wealthy. She just doesn't know it yet.

Ava: So it was your brother and sister that found out you had brain cancer?

Jonathan: A tumor. A tumor, not cancer. And, yeah, we were in Nova Scotia -- Ryan, Erin, and me -- and, um, they took me to a doctor, because I was acting completely crazy, depraved, and that's where they discovered it.

Ava: See, now, that's why I steer clear of doctors, because with my luck, I'd walk in there with, like, a hangnail and come out with a terminal illness. No, thank you.

Jonathan: My situation was a blessing because -- because it gave me my life back. No -- Ryan gave me my life back. If it weren't for him, I would not be here.

Ava: Well, he sounds great.

Jonathan: He is. Absolutely. I owe him everything.

Ava: This is -- this is so cool.

Jonathan: What? Hey, what is?

Ava: It's just that, like, normally when people are talking about love or people that they love, I just blank out and don't care. But now I can, like, totally relate to what you're saying, because I feel the same way about Lily.

Jonathan: You'd give up everything for her.

Ava: Well, I'd rather not, but, yeah, I probably would. Wow, it's so weird -- me loving someone.

Annie: You sure you don't want company?

Ryan: Positive.

[Door closes]

Zach: He wants to be alone.

Kendall: No, I can't leave things like this.

Zach: Well, then talk to him when he gets back.

Kendall: Zach, please, I need to do this. I should've done this a long time ago. So, please don't try to stop me.

[Door closes]

Zach: I'll be all right.

Annie: I'm not so sure.

Colby: Oh, hey, Krystal, did Dre tell you -- the band's playing in Philadelphia tonight?

Tad: Congratulations.

Krystal: Hmm -- I heard, I heard. Did you get enough chili, Sean?

Sean: Yeah, it was awesome, thank you.

Krystal: Cool.

Colby: You know, Sean and I were thinking about going and checking it out. Ooh.

Tad: You ok, Stuart?

Adam: [As Stuart] Jalapeno.

Krystal: Well, as long as you're home by midnight, that's fine with me.

Tad: Hey, you know what? As a matter of fact, see if the club's got T-shirts Jenny's size -- I'll pay you back.

Colby: Yeah, but the band doesn't even go on until 11:00.

Sean: And there's another act after them.

Colby: So there's no way we'd make it home by curfew.

Tad: Hmm.

Krystal: Um -- ok, 1:00, final offer.

Colby: Oh, come on -- but the band doesn't even stop playing until 2:00.

Sean: Look, I'll have her home by 3:00, tops.

Tad: I'm sorry -- no.

Colby: Come on, I'll check in with you guys every hour.

Adam: Don't -- don't these clubs have -- have age limits?

Dre: She'll be with the band, so she won't have any trouble getting in.

Sean: Look, I'll make sure she's safe.

Dre: And if he blows it, I'll be there to spot him.

Colby: Come on, Tad, you know I am responsible.

Tad: Oh, yeah. I mean, what with, you know, the -- the carjacking, stealing a limo, but I do think crashing a yacht was just a bit over the line.

Colby: Oh, come on, I am not that person anymore. I will be on my "best" behavior. Promise.

Tad: Your best behavior? Ok, well, then -- go to Philadelphia, stay out as late as you like.

Colby: Oh, yes! Whoo!

Krystal: Wait, whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait -- "late as she likes"?

Adam: Wait, that doesn't seem right.

Tad: On one condition.

Colby: Ok, ok, anything.

Tad: That you let me choose the music on the way there.

Colby: You're coming with us?

Tad: Oh, yeah, I'm coming with you. Come on, it's not a death sentence.

Colby: Ugh.

Tad: I'm not going to embarrass you, I'm not going to hang out down at the front of the stage or anything.

Colby: Ugh.

Tad: As a matter of fact, I'll change into some appropriate attire. Matter of fact, I think I still got those red spandex leggings from that Van Halen concert back in 1984.

Colby: Oh!

Tad: Oh, come on, man, something like that never goes out of style, let me tell you. I'm just wondering, you know, if they still fit.

[Colby laughs]

Tad: Wait a minute, they're spandex -- it doesn't matter.

Colby: Oh!

Tad: And don't you worry about it, baby -- I still got it.

[Krystal laughs]

Colby: Oh -- jeez.

Ren: He's kidding about the spandex, right?

Corrina: God, I hope so.


Sean: Looks like we have a chaperone.

Colby: Oh, whoo-hoo. Yay.

Sean: I'm going to get dressed.

Colby: I'm so excited.

Dre: Yeah, we got to get ready, too.

Corrina: Yeah.

Dre: Thank you so much for the food, Krystal.

Krystal: Oh, please, my pleasure. Here, I'll show you out.

Colby: Bye, guys. Well, I guess it's not the worst thing in the world -- Tad tagging along.

Adam: Yeah, well, I guess -- I guess not. I guess not. Um -- how's school going?

Colby: Oh, yeah, it just started, but so far, so good. You know, I think I'm going to do really well this semester.

Adam: Oh, you're a very smart girl.

Colby: You know, I think it's because of Tad and Krystal. You know, living here -- they've been a really good influence for me. I don't know -- it's freaky, huh?

Adam: Yeah, that's a pretty good word for it. Uh -- do you miss living with your father?

Colby: Yeah. I miss my dad a lot.

[Colby chuckles]

Adam: Oh --

Colby: Uncle Stuart --

Adam: Oh, I'm -- I'm sorry. I -- I couldn't help myself. Um -- I know I'm not your dad, but I -- since he's not here to hug, I --

Colby: Oh, come here. Ooh!

[Colby chuckles]

Colby: Oh.

Zach: There's a lot of tension right now.

Annie: Yeah, and I'm just adding to the tension. Ryan has so much on his plate right now with Spike, he doesn't need me piling on my problems.

Zach: Well, the world doesn't stop turning just because Ryan's going through some stuff, and he understands that.

Annie: Yeah, he does. He wants to help, but it's me. I can't open up, and it's making us both crazy.

Zach: You can't or you won't?

Annie: Both. You know, Ryan and I, we were in Chicago visiting my dad -- you knew that, right?

Zach: He said it wasn't serious.

Annie: As far as he knows, but it was pretty much a disaster. My dad and I, we -- um -- we don't really have the best relationship.

Zach: Well, we all have stories about our fathers.

Annie: Yeah, this is different, though. There are things in my past that Ryan doesn't know anything about, and I don't want him to ever find out.

Zach: I tried to hide my past, but it ended up catching up with me. And when it did, it had become bigger and uglier than I ever thought possible. Do you want a cup of tea?

[Calliope music plays at the park]

Ryan: Yeah. Yeah.

[Spike babbles]

Ryan: Yeah. Hey -- Daddy loves you.


Ryan: Loves you.

[Spike babbles]

Kendall: Please don't be angry.

Ryan: I asked for a little bit of alone time with my son. Now, after everything that you've taken from me, why the hell can't you give me this?

Amanda: You are such a jerk.

J.R.: What? You just had your tongue down my throat a minute ago, now I'm a jerk?

Amanda: Ava is under contract with Fusion -- the company that your son's mother sweats blood for, the company that I work for.

J.R.: So what?

Amanda: So you want to steal Ava.

J.R.: Steal? Who said anything about stealing? Maybe we could come to some sort of compromise that'll be beneficial to both sides.

Amanda: Lame, J.R., not cool.

J.R.: Would you at least listen to my idea before you get all hate on me?

Amanda: No.

J.R.: An Internet shopping network.

Amanda: The Internet "is" a shopping network.

J.R.: But my site -- the site that Ava's going to help me launch -- will be a one-stop woman's fantasyland to all things beautiful.

Amanda: Oh, right, because I forgot -- you are the expert on women's beauty products.

J.R.: No, I'm lucky if I can tell the difference between mascara and -- lip-gloss.

Amanda: This is a joke.

J.R.: But I do know women, and I know what they want.

Amanda: Oh, really?

J.R.: What woman doesn't want to feel beautiful at some point? I can offer that to them at their fingertips. Beauty products, clothing, hairstyles for every desire 24/7 -- the Ava network.

Amanda: You really think she can draw in all that?

J.R.: Are you kidding me? Ava's created more buzz with that one candid photo than most people get with a Super Bowl halftime ad. You connect her name to that link, it's going to get tens of thousands of hits a day guaranteed.

Amanda: How do you know she'll do it?

J.R.: Are you kidding me? That girl will chew off her own leg if it meant more exposure.

Amanda: True. Ok, swear to me that you are not going to screw over Fusion with this.

J.R.: I wouldn't do that. I don't really know where Fusion will fit into this just yet -- it's still a germ of an idea -- but it's a good one.

Amanda: "If" your idea works the way you say it will, it could be pretty hot.

J.R.: Say that again.

Amanda: It's hot.

J.R.: I'm sorry. Um -- I couldn't hear you.

[Surf crashes]

Jonathan: I think that the reason it's so easy for us to love our siblings is because they are the people who know who we really are. Everybody else in this town looks at me, and they can't forget the angry maniac. But -- but Ryan and Erin looked at me, and they saw -- they saw a messed-up, sick guy who desperately needed help. For instance, you -- yeah, you. People look at you, and they see a tough, fearless rebel.

Ava: Wow, that's not so far off.

Jonathan: Oh, not so much -- but it isn't you, Ava. And maybe you can fool everyone else, but you cannot fool Lily. You can't fool me, either. Don't forget, I watch you when you sleep.

Ava: Hmm. And what does that tell you, that -- that I toss in my sleep? Do I mumble words?

Jonathan: It tells me that you're a smart, scared, kind, beautiful, amazing person -- who I love to have sand fights with.

Ava: Whoo.

Jonathan: And picnics on the beach with, and -- and skip work for. That's what watching you when you sleep -- that's what it tells me.

Ava: Race you to the water!

[Ava laughs]

Ava: Whoo!


Zach: I don't know anything about your past, and I really don't care. I know the important stuff. You know, those two little boys in the ICU -- you were there for them. And when people needed your support, you were there for them, too.

Annie: Yeah, and now Ryan needs my support, and I am failing him completely.

Zach: Yeah. Hmm -- I've been learning a little bit about marriage, you know, it's a give-and-take situation. And you know what? I'm not too proud to take when I have to, but I'm a lot better at giving -- I think Ryan is the same way.

Annie: But he can't fix this, Zach. No one can.

Zach: Maybe not, but give him a chance to help you through it.

Annie: I don't think he'd even want to.

Zach: What do you think? You think keeping him in the dark is the best thing to do? It's probably not a good thing for either one of you guys.

Annie: It's just better that Ryan never finds out about this.

Zach: Yeah? I think he married you not because he thought everything was going to be perfect all the time. I think he married you, because he loves you -- all of you, the whole package. Try to remember that.

[Calliope music plays]

Ryan: Beautiful.

Kendall: Doesn't it even bother you that he can't hear the carnival?

Ryan: Enough to sneak away and have him treated without your ok -- no. No.

Kendall: Ryan, you said that you were open to Dr. Hilliard helping Spike.

Ryan: I said that I would talk to him, and I would hear what he had to say. When he slammed the door in my face, it didn't exactly leave me sold on him or his practice.

Kendall: Ok, well, I'm sure that he would talk to you now that he's treating Spike.

Ryan: How can you even say that he's treating Spike when I haven't agreed to anything? And how can you give my son vitamins when you don't even know what they're for?

Kendall: Ok, Ryan, come on.

Ryan: And how can you be making these unilateral decisions about his health and his life and shut me out like I don't exist? I mean, are you that determined to get your way?

Kendall: I just -- I'm trying to do what's best for Spike.

Ryan: You know what? I don't ever want to hear you badmouth Greenlee again, because right now, you're acting just like her.

Colby: How does Dad look?

Adam: [As Stuart] Well, how do I look?

Colby: Great. Huh.

Adam: Well, we look a lot alike.

Colby: Well, is he healthy?

Adam: Oh -- yes, I think so.

Colby: Is he taking all his medications?

Adam: Every day, every day, yes.

Colby: Ok, what about food? Is he heating healthy food?

Adam: Well, I -- just this morning, I saw him eating a bowl of oatmeal.

Colby: No.

Adam: Yes -- can you imagine that?

Colby: Oh --

Adam: He still thinks it tastes like sawdust.

Colby: Dad?

Adam: Yeah. Yeah. He eats it. You know.

Colby: Who -- ok, well, then I guess it's too much to hope that he's getting any exercise.

Adam: He has a treadmill. I'm not sure how often he uses it, but --

Colby: Well, you should tell him how important it is, Uncle Stuart.

Adam: Are you worried about your dad?

Colby: I don't know. If anything happened to him, I -- I don't know.

Adam: Why don't you go see him and tell him that? Hmm?

Colby: Yeah.

Adam: That'll do him more good than all the medicines and the treadmills in the world.

Colby: I'd love to, but every time, he just makes me feel bad for living with Tad and Krystal, and seeing Sean. He basically hates the way I choose to live.

Adam: Oh, no, I know for a fact he doesn't feel that way.

Colby: Well, my dad thinks that he has all the answers to everything, that his way is the best.

Adam: But he knows that's not true -- no, he knows.

Colby: I don't -- well, all right. Well, I have to go help Krystal with the dishes before I go, so would you mind staying here with Jenny for a few minutes?

Adam: Oh, yeah, sure.

Colby: Thanks.

Adam: Why not.

Adam: Well. Hello, little one. How's tricks? You -- you are one beautiful little baby. You're going to be such a beautiful woman someday. You might even be as beautiful as your mama.

Krystal: Stuart Chandler. That is the sweetest compliment any man has ever given me.

Adam: Huh.

Annie: Ah. Thanks for listening, Zach.

Zach: Ah. I was going to write you a fairy tale, but ends up, I'm not a very good writer.

Annie: How is indomitable Ian doing?

Zach: He is invincible, just like the story says.

Annie: Yay, Ian.

Zach: I got to hold him. Did I tell you that?

Annie: No.

Zach: All right, look at this. Wait, hang on, where'd he go -- like that.

[Annie gasps]

Annie: Oh. That's amazing.

Zach: Hmm? That's me --

Annie: I think I might cry.

Zach: What are you -- what? What's with women? They always want to cry when things are good. He's gaining weight, he's, you know, he's going to crawl soon, walk soon --

Annie: Run?

Zach: We'll keep him from running as long as we can.

Annie: Hmm. You seem hopeful. It's nice.

Zach: "Nice" -- something about that little boy makes you believe in the future.

Annie: Yeah. Seems like forever, since I've been hopeful about the future.

Zach: I think we're going to have to refresh your memory.

[Calliope music plays]

Kendall: You know, you're not completely off base about that Greenlee crack, as much as it pains me to admit it. I am stubborn when I want something. And when that something involves my son, I'm a bulldog. But you have to agree that it's good Spike has that kind of mom -- a mom that will never stop fighting for him, as long as that fight isn't at the expense of his dad. I'm sorry, Ryan. I'm sorry that I went behind your back again. I'm not even going to lie and say that it was unintentional, because I knew exactly what I was doing. I just -- I didn't want you to try to stop me. But I believe, Ryan -- I believe with everything in me that Dr. Hilliard can make Spike hear again. I just -- I just couldn't take that chance of never knowing for sure. I just hope you know that my heart was in the right place. I hope you can at least try to forgive me. I mean, aren't you a little bit curious as to -- as to how I changed Dr. Hilliard's mind?

Ryan: Did you beat him over the head with a club?

Kendall: Yes. No. You remember when you said earlier that I almost gave Spike up for adoption to Greg Madden?

Ryan: That was a cheap shot, and I'm sorry.

Kendall: Well, I told all of that to Dr. Hilliard -- how I was ready to go on living this pointless, selfish, kid-free life -- until Spike tugged at these heartstrings I didn't even know I had. You know, before I even saw his face, our little boy changed my entire life, my entire world.

Ryan: He changed mine, too.

Kendall: Well, it's that love that -- that's driving me to help him now, and that same love that -- that got Dr. Hilliard to get back onboard and help us.

Ryan: I know you love Spike, Kendall. And I love him, too. That's why it infuriates me when you treat me like I come second to you with him and like my opinion doesn't even matter.

Kendall: I know. Sorry. I'm sorry.

Ryan: I didn't mean to make you cry.

Kendall: Hmm. Everything makes me cry lately. Everything -- the trees make me cry, the -- everything makes me cry.

Ryan: You're exhausted.

Kendall: I am. You want to get out of here?

Ryan: Yeah. Um -- Spike and I were thinking of going to the carnival.

Kendall: Can I take you someplace even better?

Ryan: I'm going to have to ask him.

Kendall: Ok. Ask him.

[Krystal hums, chuckles]

Krystal: Ah, she just adores you. You'd make a really fine daddy, Stuart.

Adam: [As Stuart] Oh. I am a daddy. When I fell in love with Cindy, I fell in love with her son, Scott, and I -- and I adopted him.

Krystal: That's right -- how could I forget that? You did tell me that.

Adam: Yeah.

Krystal: Hmm.

Adam: You know, sometimes you don't have to be somebody's biological father to -- well, to accept her -- him -- for what they are.

Krystal: Hmm. Yeah, I -- I certainly know that. I've certainly come to love Colby as if she were my own. Heck, I -- I even have a soft spot for J.R.

[Krystal chuckles]

Adam: Yeah, well, Adam is really glad that -- that Colby has you.

Krystal: No -- huh. I tell you what, Stuart -- I think those rose-colored glasses you look through might be just a bit too rosy.

Adam: Adam knows what a good woman you are, Krystal.

Krystal: Ah, I know. You know what? If -- maybe if he were a little bit more like you, I would buy that, but Adam doesn't care about anybody but Adam. I mean, please. He -- he started hating this little princess before she was even born, tried to pass her off to a couple of strangers even though she's got a mother and father that love the stuffing out of her.

Adam: Huh. Could you ever get past that?

Krystal: Could you?

Amanda: So --

J.R.: Mm-hmm?

Amanda: How big do you see this network getting?

J.R.: Well, we're going to start with TV --

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

J.R.: And then go to -- um, oh -- online, and some infomercials, that sort of thing, and then our own network.

Amanda: "We," huh?

J.R.: Well, I still owe you 500 Gs, not that you'll ever let me forget that.

Amanda: Hmm.

[J.R. chuckles]

[Amanda gasps]

Amanda: You don't plan on stopping there, do you?

J.R.: I don't plan on stopping ever.

[J.R. chuckles]

[Amanda giggles]

[Knock on door]

Man: We're looking for a J.R. Chandler. He in there?

[Camera shutters click from the bushes as Ava and Jonathan kiss on the beach]

Jonathan: Ava?

Ava: Hmm, huh?

Jonathan: Don't you think that we should take this party somewhere else?

Ava: Boring.

Jonathan: Hmm.

Ava: Oh.

Jonathan: Oh, wait, wait, wait.

Ava: What?

Jonathan: Anybody -- anybody could walk up on us right now.

Ava: So what? I thought that's why you liked me so much, huh? Spontaneous, wild, ready to go?

[Jonathan chuckles]

Photographer: Who's that guy with her?

Second photographer: Jonathan Lavery.

First photographer: The murderer?

Second photographer: That's the one. Pay dirt, my friend -- pay dirt.

[Camera shutters click]

[Knock on door]

[J.R. sighs]

Amanda: Oh.


J.R.: Ah. What?

Man: J.R. Chandler?

J.R.: Yeah?

Man: We've come to repossess the yacht.

Amanda: What? Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait -- wait a minute. There must be some mistake. J.R. doesn't own this boat. It's a loaner from a friend. Don't tell me you lied. Do you own this thing, J.R.?

J.R.: Huh --

Man: Not anymore.

Adam: [As Stuart] Adam's made a lot of big mistakes in his life, but trying to pass this baby off to strangers, that -- that was the biggest one. Well, I don't know how he could live with himself if he doesn't try to make it right.

Krystal: You'd be surprised.

Adam: Ok -- look at her. Look at her, she's -- I'll bet you're -- you're pretty tired, too, after all that cooking. Listen, could -- maybe I could tuck her in, huh?

Krystal: Not so fast. I am on to you.

Zach: Hey, little man. Give me a high-five. You know, last week I said that, and he lifted his hand up.

Annie: Nah-uh, not really.

Zach: Uh-huh, really -- it's crazy. Not, you know, all the way up, but a couple of inches.

Annie: Oh. Hey, little Ian? Give me a high-five. Give me a high-five.

Zach: Hey, hey, hey, little Annie. Do you really think a preemie can give a high-five?

Annie: I can't believe I fell for that.

Zach: Well -- at least it made you laugh.

Annie: Huh. Thanks, Zach. Thanks for bringing me here. Seeing Ian, it does make me hopeful about things.

[Knock on door]

Annie: Hi.

Zach: Hey. Come in.

Kendall: Bye, sweet. I love you.

Ryan: Yeah.

Kendall and Annie: Hi.

Zach: Hello.

Kendall: Hey. Hmm -- hmm.

Zach: How are you doing?

Kendall: Checking in.

Zach: This guy --

Kendall: Well, hello, my little angel.

Zach: Look who came to see you -- your hot mom.

Kendall: Hmm.

[Annie sighs]

Annie: I'm willing to talk if you're willing to listen.

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Kendall (to Zach): They're my lucky heels.

Zach: Think you'll get lucky tonight?

Erica (to Greenlee): How are you planning to torture our family now?

Annie (to Ryan): My mother is dead because of my lie. I killed her.
