Kendall: It's even quieter here at night.

Zach: It's peaceful -- perfect for kangarooing. What? What are you laughing at me for? What?

Kendall: Just the way that you say that -- "kangarooing."

Zach: That's what I come here for.

Kendall: Well, why don't you whisper "I love you" in his ear for me?

Zach: Why don't you whisper that yourself? It's time. Go hold your son.

Kendall: I can't.

Lily: Ava, wake up! Wake up if you can hear my voice! Doctor, she's not waking up. Is she going to die?

Julia: If nothing is done, her appendix will rupture.

Joe: The longer we wait, the worse the situation becomes. We need to remove her appendix right now.

[Annie gasps at the noise of Ryan trying to open the door]

Ryan: Annie? You all right?

[After putting away her little wooden box, Annie removes the chain from the door and lets Ryan in]

Ryan: What's going on? What's with the door?

Annie: I -- I saw Aidan with my mother's locket.

Ryan: What?

Annie: The locket, Ryan -- the locket that we threw in the ocean. How did he end up with it?

Ryan: Oh -- ok. I -- I don't know, but we'll figure it out.

Annie: No. No, we threw away that locket, so that I could put the past behind me, but it's impossible. It follows me no matter what I do. Oh.

Greenlee: I don't believe this -- a total no-show. Well, apparently I'm good enough to sleep with when he's half in the bag, but God forbid Aidan Devane shows up to have a lucid dinner with me. What a waste -- crashing waves and moonlight. Here, seagulls -- go nuts. This -- this stays. Hmm. So long, perfectly aged gouda. Not that things weren't bad enough, but now, I have to deal with this. I swear to God, if I ever see Detective Devane -- Aidan -- oh, my God, Aidan! Aidan, are you ok? Aidan -- oh, I'm so sorry I said those things about you. I didn't mean them.

Aidan: Oh.

Greenlee: Aidan? Oh, thank God. Aidan, how many fingers am I holding up?

Aidan: 53.

Greenlee: Very funny -- what happened?

Aidan: Oh, I was -- I was on my way to the beach when I found this, and I thought you'd dropped it.

Greenlee: Yeah, that's mine.

Aidan: Then I bent down to pick it up and someone must've knocked me over the head with that rock.

Greenlee: Well, did you see who it was?

Aidan: Ah -- no. They came from behind, they must've been waiting for me.

Greenlee: Ok, listen, I'm going to take you to the hospital.

Aidan: No, I'm not going to go to the hospital. That's not necessary, Greenlee.

Greenlee: We're going to let the doctors decide that.

Aidan: Oh. Look, it's my head, it's my decision.

Greenlee: Ok, stop being so macho. Let me take care of you for once.

Aidan: Whew. Fine. I'll go. Just let me get this rock for prints.

Greenlee: They don't know who they're messing with.

Aidan: No, I think the bigger question is, Greenlee, is how did they know that I was going to be here?

Greenlee: They knew you were coming to meet me. Ryan -- it was one of his guys.

Aidan: No, it can't be.

Greenlee: How else did they know you were meeting me at the beach? I mean, Ryan's been trailing me 24/7. Maybe it was the guy from The Comeback -- maybe he decided to stick around.

Aidan: Yeah, and what -- you think this is Ryan's way of warning off anyone that defends you?

Greenlee: Yeah, because he wants me out of town. I mean, what easier way than if I'm friendless? Message received, Ryan. Just wait till you get mine.

Ryan: Ok, there's got to be -- there's got to be some sort of explanation here, right? I mean, things wash up on the shore all the time. And Aidan goes for a jog on that beach practically every morning, so it's really not all that far-fetched that he, you know, saw the locket watch and picked it up.

Annie: I don't know. I -- something just feels off. It's like -- it's like nothing's a coincidence anymore. And I've been -- I've been remembering all of these things today, a day, I -- my dad crashing through the window and picturing myself on that witness stand.

Ryan: It's just -- you just told me about these things, things you haven't talked about in years. It's normal that those memories would be front and center right now.

Annie: Yeah, but it's more than just memories. It's like -- it's like they're real. It's like they're happening all over again.

Ryan: But they're not.

Annie: Yeah -- I don't know. I remembered my mom and I -- I thought I saw the noose and the swinging and --

Ryan: Annie, I am so sorry that you had to see that.

Annie: It was just so clear and -- and the locket on the floor.

Ryan: And then you saw it with Aidan? And you're sure that it's the same one?

Annie: Yes, yes, yes, I'm positive. It was Aidan, just hanging out at The Comeback with Greenlee and my mother's locket.

Ryan: With Greenlee -- and Aidan?

Annie: Yeah, yeah -- weird, I know, and -- and they looked close, too.

Ryan: Oh, really?

Annie: Yeah. Aidan was just sitting there talking to Greenlee, holding my mom's locket and -- and they were talking as if they had some kind of joke or something.

Ryan: Ok, I'm sure that there will be an explanation once we talk to Aidan, ok, and he'll be able to explain how he ended up with your mother's locket watch, all right? Now, what he was doing with Greenlee -- that's a whole other story.

[Phone rings]

Ryan: Hello.

Greenlee: You son of a bitch!

Zach: I know holding a little miracle is a scary thing. It was for me, too.

Kendall: No, that -- that's not it, Zach. It's me -- me and my children, me as a mother. I'm the reason that Spike almost died again.

Zach: No. He had an allergic reaction, even Joe said -- you know, kids his age, they get that. It was the vitamins, not you.

Kendall: But I'm the one who gave him the vitamins. I'm -- I'm the one who forced Hilliard to treat Spike even when he didn't want to. I -- it's my fault that -- that our children are hurt

Zach: You got to stop that -- you're not responsible for all that.

Kendall: How can you say that? It's my job as a mother to protect my children. Look at them. One of them is -- is in a park surrounded by silence. And the other one, he's -- he's struggling every day just to get by. So, with this job of mine, how would you say I'm doing?

Zach: You're doing the best you can, and your best is better than anybody else's.

Kendall: I was so sure that Spike could be fixed and that I was the one who could fix him. Mom knows best, right?

Zach: She does.

Kendall: I hurt Spike, and I'm afraid that if I get too close to Ian, I'll hurt him, too.

Adam: Yeah, Adam Chandler. Yeah, what do you have for me? Ah. Well, that's your update? Why did you even bother calling me? Listen, I built Chandler Enterprises from the ground up, and there's no way in hell that Zach Slater is going to take it away from me. Yeah, understood. Yeah, well, you understand this -- that once I'm back in my rightful place as CEO, I will remember the names of all the people who tried to cross me on my way back up. Nobody tells me what to do, or what not to do.

Orderly: I'm sorry, sir, but you're going to have to end that call now. Cell phones aren't allowed in this area.

Joe: I need an OR prepped stat. Emergency appendectomy. All right, they're waiting for us now. All we have to do is get the go-ahead. Now, as Ava's closest relative, you do have the authority to sign the release forms.

Ava: No -- no scars.

J.R.: If you don't have this surgery, scars will be the of your problem. Now, the way that I see it, you got two options -- under the knife or under the ground. Don't be stupid.

Joe: Ava, the reason you're feeling pain is because your appendix is infected. If we don't do the surgery, it could burst, spilling bacteria into your abdomen.

Julia: We really want to avoid that happening.

J.R.: Yeah. It's kind of hard to be a famous model if you're dead.

Lily: I don't like it when you talk like that, J.R.

Joe: We need an answer.

Lily: Ava, I'd like you to sign the forms. I've been listening very closely to all their information, and it seems like surgery would be the best option.

J.R.: I haven't even had the chance to pitch the rest of my idea.

Ava: What else?

J.R.: Have the operation, you'll find out.

Ava: You're lying.

J.R.: Well, guess I'll have to go with someone else, then. You know, it's really too bad. I thought you would be the perfect person to cross all media.

Ava: All media?

J.R.: Yeah. The beauty network is just the beginning, Ava.

Ava: Oh.

Joe: Julia, I can handle this now. We're going to take you up to the OR. We're ready.

Ava: Wait -- go back a second, J.R. What -- how big are you talking about?

Joe: I don't think you quite grasp the severity of the situation. Now, the surgery happens now or it doesn't happen at all. What's it going to be?

Ryan: What's your problem now, Greenlee? What do you want?

Greenlee: How could you? You want to mess with me, fine, but you leave my friends out of it.

Ryan: What are you talking about?

Greenlee: Aidan, rock to the head -- ring any bells?

Ryan: No.

Greenlee: One of your guys snuck up to him, clubbed him, and landed him in the hospital.

Ryan: The hospital? Is he all right? Aidan. I had nothing to do with this.

Greenlee: Whoever it was also took his wallet, so I don't know what kind of guys you're hiring!

[Phone hangs up]

Ryan: Greenlee? Green --

Annie: Wait a minute. What happened to Aidan?

Ryan: I don't know. Apparently, he got hit over the head, he got mugged or something like that? Look, I should -- I should probably go to the hospital. Are you going to be all right?

Annie: No, of course, go.

Ryan: Yeah?

Annie: Yeah. Of course.

Ryan: Ok.

Greenlee: Hey. How's it going in here?

Aidan: Great, really good -- ow, julia.

Julia: There we go.

Aidan: What?

Greenlee: Nothing.

Julia: So, you never told me what happened, Special Ops.

Aidan: I was on my way to the beach, someone clubbed me over the head, and when I woke up, my wallet was gone.

Julia: Do you want me to call the police so you can file a report?

Aidan: Uh -- not my proudest moment as a PI, so I'd rather not spread the word. Thank you.

Julia: Hmm. The beach? This isn't your usual jogging outfit.

Aidan: I wasn't there for a run.

Greenlee: We were going to have a picnic. Huh. Is there something wrong with that?

Julia: No, no -- no, no. Uh -- ok. You're all set. Uh -- do you want anything else? Do you want a lollipop?

Aidan: A shot of tequila would go down nice.

Julia: I'm going to go get your paperwork started so you can get out of here.

Aidan: Thanks, Jules.

Julia: Sure.

Greenlee: I am so sorry, Aidan.

Aidan: What for?

Greenlee: This, your head -- it's my fault you're in the hospital.

Aidan: Well, if your hunch about Ryan is right, well, then it's his fault.

Greenlee: Yeah, but see, it wouldn't have happened if you weren't hanging out with me.

Aidan: Yeah -- all about you.

Greenlee: If you want to run for your life, I would totally understand.

Aidan: Do you see me running? I'm starving. Is there any food left in that picnic basket?

Greenlee: Uh -- huh, huh -- no. I kind of chucked it to the seagulls.

Aidan: You fed my dinner to the birds?

Greenlee: Well, I thought you stood me up. Oh, gosh, and I -- I was just ripping you a new one, and you were laying there bleeding and helpless.

Aidan: That doesn't sound very good, Greenlee.

Greenlee: You were laying there manly and hunky.

Aidan: Yeah, that's a lot better, thank you.

Greenlee: Aidan, I'm really sorry.

Aidan: Oh. Will you shake it off, all right? I'm the first to admit that you can be a real pain, but not tonight. Now, I wasn't happy about Ryan following you in the first place, but right now, he has really crossed the line.

Greenlee: I get that -- that I messed up with Dr. Hilliard and Spike, but --

Aidan: Yeah, I get it, all right? You were only trying to help.

Greenlee: Well, I wish Ryan would get it, you know? Then he could stop wasting his money having me stalked.

Aidan: Well, now, Ryan has a real problem -- me.

Zach: Hey. You're not going to hurt Ian. He -- and there's a nurse with him the whole time.

Kendall: I know that. In my head, I know that. I know that it's not logical.

Zach: But it's what you're feeling?

Kendall: Yeah, like I can't take care of my babies. I mean, I have made so many mistakes in my life. Maybe this is some big cosmic payback or something.

Zach: No. This is just life. And your two sons -- they're not burdened by you. They love you. Do you understand that?

Kendall: I want to. And I want to hold our son -- I do, I really do -- but I can't right now, not when -- no, I -- I can't. Ian -- Ian doesn't need that.

Zach: What Ian needs right now is you. I know you're scared. But I got to tell you, holding him and feeling him rise and fall with every breath that you take -- everything else just goes away. You'll see.

Kendall: Do you think he'll know it's me?

Zach: Yeah. You carried him for six months. And then, when you -- you feel his skin on your skin -- I can't even describe that.

Kendall: So that -- that's good for him, right? The skin-to-skin contact is good?

Zach: Yeah. Regulates his heartbeat and his breathing. Julia will explain it to you. You can do this.

Kendall: Ok. Yes. I will do whatever it takes to help our son. I'll do it.

Zach: Come here.

[Adam watches as Zach and Kendall hug]

Joe: Thank you.

Jonathan: Joe? Julia called me -- what's going on? Is Ava ok?

Joe: Well, she could be if anyone could talk any sense into her. Look, maybe you could give it a shot, huh?

Ava: I told you I don't want the surgery! Jon!

Jonathan: Hey.

Ava: I'm so sorry.

Jonathan: Hey -- whoa, no. No, no, no, no, no. You have nothing to be sorry for.

Ava: Oh. Well, I thought I was pregnant, and I was too afraid to do anything about it. And now, I'm here -- please don't hate me.

Jonathan: No, no, no, no. Hey, how could I hate you? You're going to be fine. You're going to be fine.

[Ava sighs]

Ava: I'm sorry I didn't call you, either.

Jonathan: No -- hey, it's ok.

Ava: Oh!

Jonathan: I'm here now -- that's all that matters, all right?

Lily: Ava doesn't want the surgery that she should get it.

Ava: They're saying I could die. I'm so scared -- what should I do?

Joe: She needs to sign the release forms, so we can go ahead and remove her appendix.

Jonathan: Is it the only option?

Ava: I don't want to be cut open!

Jonathan: Listen -- hey. They're going to -- they're going to make you better, ok? You're going to be fine, I'm going to be right here. I'm going to be right here when it's done, ok? Just, here --

Ava: Huh!

[Ava pants]

Ava: That's if I ever wake up.

Jonathan: No, no, no, no, no -- "when" you wake up. You're going to be fine.

Ava: Huh. Oh! Oh.

Jonathan: Hey.

Lily: Ava, in order to be ok --

Jonathan: You're going to be ok.

Lily: You have to have the surgery, and I need you to be ok.

Jonathan: You're going to be ok.

Ava: Fine! Sign the stupid thing.

[Lily signs the consent form]

Joe: Get her upstairs and prepped.

Jonathan: Right here when you wake up, ok?

J.R.: I'll be right here, too, Ava.

Jonathan: Right here when you --

Ava: Shut up, J.R. Oh!

Jonathan: What are you doing here?

Lily: J.R. was with Ava when she collapsed, and he brought her to the hospital so the doctors could save her.

Jonathan: Of course, you were. Didn't waste any time, did you? You saw Ava in a little bit of pain, and you moved right in.

Greenlee: Do you want me to grab you some food from the cafeteria?

Aidan: Oh, I think I'd rather starve, thanks.

Greenlee: Ok. Well, then how about after the paperwork, we go and grab some dinner?

Aidan: Oh, you still want to do this?

Greenlee: Yeah. I just thought we'd skip the rock-bashing part.

Aidan: All right. Sounds like a plan.

Ryan: Hey. Man, are you all right?

Aidan: Yeah, I'm fine, no thanks to you. What is this with all the -- the hired muscle, huh?

Ryan: I tried to tell you that I had nothing to do with that.

Greenlee: Honestly? You want to punish me -- fine, I've earned it. But siccing your guys on Aidan?

Ryan: If you'd let me explain before you hung up on me, I would've told you that my guys had nothing to do with this.

Aidan: Yeah, talking about your guys, you don't think it's a little bit overboard having Greenlee followed 24 hours a day?

Ryan: No. I don't, Aidan, and considering that you've witnessed things that she's done, I'm kind of surprised that you're asking me that. What is this anyway?

[Greenlee chuckles]

Greenlee: "This"? This is none of your business.

Ryan: Ok. Look, all I care about is that you stay away from my family, and you know that whoever attacked you was not sent by me.

Greenlee: Well, if it wasn't one of your guys, who was it?

Ryan: I don't know. But I might be able to -- to find out. Were you nearby when this happened?

Greenlee: Yes. I was waiting for Aidan by the beach.

Ryan: Good. Then whoever was tailing you might have seen who attacked Aidan. All right, thank you. Nothing. My guys didn't see what happened to Aidan, because they were watching you on the beach. They said it looked like you were waiting for somebody, but that's about it.

Greenlee: Well, thanks. That's a big help.

Ryan: Aidan? We've known each other for a long time. Is it my style to use hired muscle as intimidation?

Aidan: Well, what do you think what you're doing to Greenlee? What do you call that?

Ryan: I'm keeping tabs. I'm not taking her out. And I just found out that you threw out one of my guys at The Comeback bar.

Aidan: Well, you guy was getting a little bit too close for my comfort.

Ryan: Look, Greenlee is fully aware of what I'm doing and why.

Aidan: No matter how wrong it is?

Ryan: It doesn't concern you, Aidan.

Aidan: Oh.

Ryan: All you need to know is that I had nothing to do with whoever attacked you -- that's it.

Annie: Hey.

Ryan: Hey.

Annie: Hi, how are you?

Ryan: Hi, I'm good.

Annie: You -- you had said that Aidan was hurt. I just wanted to make sure he was ok.

Aidan: I'm fine. I think I'll live.

Annie: Do you know who did it?

Aidan: No, but it won't take me long to find out.

Julia: It was probably just some kids looking to score some cash, don't you think?

Aidan: I don't think so. Thanks.

Julia: Sure.

Annie: But they got your wallet.

Aidan: Yeah, they did. But I keep my cash in a money clip, which is right here. It's really easy to find, so --

Greenlee: And they didn't take your watch, either.

Aidan: No, they didn't. And this watch is a hell of a lot more valuable than that locket watch that they swiped.

Greenlee: Wait- whoa, whoa, whoa. They took the locket we found on the beach? That watch is broken.

Aidan: Yeah, I know, yeah. And the funny thing is I was wearing it around my neck, like right underneath my shirt. So they wouldn't be able to find it unless -- unless they were looking for it.

Greenlee: Whoever knocked you out really wanted that locket.

Joe: You'll be helping Ian by holding him. Your smell, your heartbeat -- all of this will acclimate him, simulating his experience in the womb.

Zach: Are you ready?

Kendall: Ok.

Joe: Are you all right?

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Joe: Call me if you need me.

Zach: How do you feel?

Kendall: Like a mother. Hmm. Mm-hmm. I'm your mom.

[Zach sighs]

J.R.: I was on my way to Fusion for some business -- Ava ran into me. And if it wasn't for me, she'd probably still be lying on that lobby floor. You can thank me anytime.

Jonathan: Thank you, J.R. I appreciate you driving Ava to the hospital. Now, if you're waiting for your -- your hero's parade, you should look somewhere else.

Lily: But J.R. saved my sister's life.

Jonathan: He did, Lily, you're right. And what's that going to cost her, J.R.?

J.R.: Mm-hmm?

Jonathan: You can go now.

J.R.: Like I need your permission.

Reporter: J.R., how's Ava?

Second reporter: How's Ava doing?

[Camera shutters click]

Joe: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Not -- not in my hospital.

Reporter: Look here, Ava!

Joe: Take your cameras out of here.

Reporter: Come on, Ava!

Joe: This is no story. No story.

Zach: Adam, what's going on? No flowers this time?

Adam: I heard you were conducting business here at the hospital. I thought it likely I'd find you here.

Zach: You found me. What do you want?

Adam: I've been doing a lot of re-evaluating recently, a lot of thoughts about my family -- in good part because of you.

Zach: Oh, well, you know what, Adam? I don't have the time or the patience to talk to you about that, because I still have a family, unlike you. So, you want to talk business, you make an appointment.

Adam: This is not business.

Zach: Then what is it? What do you want?

Adam: My house. I'd like it back.

Greenlee: I told you that locket meant something to someone.

Aidan: Well, I didn't say I didn't. I just knew that it wasn't part of some silly little soppy love story. You don't still believe that, do you?

Greenlee: I don't know, but I think that locket or watch -- whatever it is, it's important. I mean, someone must have seen you with it and decided they wanted it back.

Aidan: Well, they could've just, you know, asked me for it instead of knocking me over the head. I'll tell you this much -- whoever did this to me is going to pay.

Annie: Can I talk to you for a minute?

Ryan: Yeah, sure.

Annie: I cannot believe that this is happening right now. This -- this has to be somebody working for Richie. I mean, who else knew about that locket?

Ryan: Your father knew about it.

Annie: Ryan, my father wouldn't do this to Aidan, though. I mean, Richie must -- must be working this from behind bars.

Ryan: Ok, all right. It's possible, it's possible. We don't know for sure -- all the facts.

Annie: Ok, well, we better get them soon because if my brother is involved in this, he has more planned.

Ryan: I'm going to do some digging, all right? But I got to tell you the truth -- I could really use a little bit of help.

Annie: What, you -- you want to involve Aidan?

Ryan: Well, he's already involved. He just doesn't know how involved we are.

Annie: Even though he seems really close to Greenlee these days?

Ryan: No, I know, I know. I know it's -- it -- it's not ideal, I realize that, but he's good at what he does and he's going to be investigating it anyway. Maybe there's a way that we could figure it out without getting Greenlee anywhere near it.

Annie: Oh -- ok.

Ryan: Hey. Can I talk to you for a second?

Aidan: Yeah, sure.

Ryan: Thanks.

Aidan: What's up?

Ryan: I got a job for you, and it's the most important job I've ever asked you to do.

Adam: That house was supposed to be in the Chandler family forever.

Zach: "Forever" is a long time.

Adam: Yes. A place where Adam III can raise his children and their children after that. I think I can still make that happen. You outmaneuvered me, Slater, pure and simple, and for that, you have my respect. But that house doesn't mean anything to you. It means a great deal to me. I'm not coming to you as a businessman. I'm not coming to you foolish enough to think we're friends. I'm coming to you as a father who wants a house that he can invite his children to come home to. I'll pay you whatever you want.

Zach: I don't want your money, Chandler.

Adam: You don't even know what you're doing to that -- with that --

Zach: So take it. Take the damn thing -- it's yours.

Ryan: The locket belonged to Annie's mother.

Aidan: Then why would she want to throw it away?

Ryan: It's a long story, but basically, she just wants to put her past behind her.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: Right, and someone doesn't want to let her do that. Any idea who?

Ryan: I'm working on it. I just got to look into it a little bit more before I say anything.

Aidan: Well, I can't help you, Ryan, unless you give me some more details.

Ryan: Ok, let's just forget about the locket for now, all right? Have to leave town for the night -- I need to speak to somebody.

Aidan: Ok.

Ryan: And I realize that you are the one who was attacked, but the locket did belong to Annie, so I was wondering if you could keep an eye on her while I'm gone.

Aidan: All right. If this guy comes anywhere near her, he won't know what hit him.

Ryan: Thank you. Wait, there's just -- there's just one more thing that I -- I need to ask you.

Aidan: Ok, I'm listening.

Ryan: Can you do it without involving Greenlee?

[Aidan sighs]

Ryan: Look, I don't -- I don't know what's going on between you guys, but I just don't want her anywhere near my family.

Aidan: Yeah. You got to understand, Ryan, Greenlee was trying to help Spike when she went to see Dr. Hilliard.

Ryan: And you have to understand, Aidan, this goes way beyond Dr. Hilliard.

Aidan: Yeah, but is it necessary to keep a 24-hour tab on her, still now?

Ryan: I'm not going to argue with you about this, Aidan.

Aidan: Hmm.

Ryan: Can you do what I'm asking or not?

Aidan: Look, I won't tell Greenlee anything that she doesn't need to know.

Ryan: Good.

Aidan: And just so you know, Greenlee and I aren't that close, all right?

[Greenlee is hurt when she overhears Aidan]

[Reporters yell questions]

Officer: Come on, boys. Come on, back up.

J.R.: I don't think that's such a good idea.

Photographer: I wasn't doing anything.

J.R.: Relax -- I wasn't going to kick you out. I know what you want -- I get it. I'm just saying you shouldn't go in there -- not while he's in there.

Photographer: "He" who?

J.R.: Jonathan Lavery -- Ava Benton's boyfriend? The guy redefines "crazy."

Photographer: We know him. We got pictures of them doing it on the beach the other night.

J.R.: Well, why did it say "mystery man" when you posted those pics on the web? Where's the cover story? "Supermodel does psycho boy"?

Lily: You still don't like J.R., do you?

Jonathan: I don't trust him, Lily, especially not with Ava.

Lily: Well, you used to be bad and now you're good -- maybe J.R.'s like you.

Jonathan: I wouldn't bet on that, Lily.

Photographer: The "sex on the beach" picture you saw online was just a tease. We have more -- we're just sitting on them until the time is right.

J.R.: So you're telling me psycho boy in there is going to be hitting it big?

Photographer: We're going to add that angle last -- build anticipation, then reveal the mystery man.

J.R.: Yeah. Well, I see what your magazine's trying to do, but I think waiting is the wrong move. Look, one of my companies owns your competitor's magazine, and I know for a fact they're going to be dropping this story.

Photographer: But we're the only ones with the pictures.

J.R.: Don't be so sure.

Photographer: Damn.

J.R.: You didn't hear it from me. Oh, and, by the way, did you know that Jonathan Lavery used to be married to Ava Benton's sister, Lily Montgomery? I mean, talk about sick.

Adam: You're giving the house back to me, just like that?

Zach: Just like that.

Adam: Why? So you can renege on the deal somewhere down the road when the mood takes you? No, I want this transaction to be ironclad.

Zach: Ok. Give me a dollar.

Adam: Excuse me?

Zach: Just give me a buck and the house is yours.

Adam: This is ridiculous!

Zach: It's all it's worth to me. Chandler, take the deal.

Zach: Nice. I'm going to get a cup of coffee. Hey -- why don't you go home? It's an empty one, but it's yours.

Adam: $1, huh? That's how insignificant I am to him. Well, good. That means he won't see me coming -- until it's too late.

Annie: I want to come with you.

Ryan: Somebody has got to stay with Emma. And -- and Kendall and Zach still need help with Spike.

Annie: I have a really bad feeling about this -- you going to see my brother.

Ryan: It's going to be all right. It's going to be ok. Aidan's going to be watching you.

Annie: And who's going to protect you?

Ryan: The guards, for one.

Annie: This is -- this is Richie we're talking about, Ryan. You don't know my brother.

Ryan: And he doesn't know how far I would go to protect you.

Annie: Just promise me you'll be careful, ok?

Ryan: I promise.

Annie: So, what are you going to say to him?

Ryan: Well, I haven't got it all figured out, but I do know that if this is him, if he's the one behind this, if he's got somebody working for him on the outside, I'm going to stop it.

Kendall: I know it's been a rough start. And everything's so big and scary. But it's going to be better now. It's all going to be better -- I know that now. From this moment on, nothing bad will happen to us ever again.

[Kendall looks up and sees Greenlee staring at her through the nursery window]

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

Greenlee (to Zach): I will fix what I broke, and I will do it for Kendall. You just try and stop me.

Kendall: Forgive me for what I'm about to do, but I don't have a choice.

Man: Richard Novak is no longer an inmate here. He's been released.

Aidan (to Annie): Where did you get this?
