[Kendall pulls Greenlee's gifts back out of the trash can and sets them on her desk]

Erica: Hi.

Kendall: Hi.

Erica: Hi. I have time to kill before my taping, so I thought I'd do the mom thing that all children hate.

Kendall: Oh.

Erica: I thought I'd drop by unannounced --

Kendall: Ah.

Erica: And see my beautiful daughter.

Kendall: Well, you have actually caught me in a very good mood, so I will cut you some slack.

Erica: Oh, well, good.

Kendall: Hmm.

Erica: So I take it your first day back at work was a real success?

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, pretty much. Mom, Fusion is on fire. Di, she's ready established a Fusion foothold in New York, and then Greenlee and I, we're -- we're working --

Erica: "Greenlee and I"?

Kendall: Like it or not, Mother, she is my partner. I have to find a way to work with her.

Erica: No, you don't.

Kendall: Just let me handle this my way, all right? I know what I'm doing.

Erica: I'm sure you do. So, what are you working on today?

Kendall: Well --

Erica: Let me see here. Oh, Kendall.

Babe: Don't clam up now, J.R. I mean, you were just telling Ava how easy I am. What exactly did you mean by that?

J.R.: Oh. Can we take this outside?

Ava: I think he means you.

Babe: I know who he means.

[Phone rings]

J.R.: I have to take this phone call.

Babe: Go ahead, take it, but we're not done by a long shot. Besides, I have a few things I need to discuss with Ava first anyway.

J.R.: J.R. Chandler. Yeah.

Ava: Ok, you can spare me your lectures. I haven't done anything wrong. I haven't -- I haven't had any alcohol or kissed any women and --

[Ava exhales]

Ava: You smell anything other than orange juice, you're making it up.

Babe: I don't know what J.R. is pitching you, but whatever it is, run before you make the biggest mistake of your life.

Krystal: What's that for?

Wes: There's a light bulb out over the bar.

Krystal: What -- yes! Thank you. Ok. No, I'll -- I'll take care of it.

Wes: Is there a "how many bartenders does it take to screw in a light bulb" joke I'm missing here?

Krystal: No, no, no joke. I'm just in a -- in a good mood.

Wes: All right. You want some help?

Krystal: No, no, thank you. Um -- actually, Stuart is going to be here any minute, and he's -- he's real handy that way, so --

Wes: Ok. All right, here we --

Krystal: Ok, just --

Wes: This light here, all right.

Krystal: Thank you. Whoo! We are going to have some fun, sugar doll. So you just sit back and keep your eyes on your mama. I am going to teach my little kitten how to trap a big, old rat.

Annie: Everything ok?

Ryan: Aidan just delivered this. It's a -- it's a shipping receipt.

Annie: For what?

Ryan: It says the person who sent your mother's locket watch to you was -- you. What is going on, Annie?

Annie: This is unbelievable.

Ryan: Help me understand, please.

Annie: That receipt, Ryan -- it's wrong. It's a fake.

Ryan: It's got your signature, Annie.

Annie: Of course, it does! It's a part of Richie's sick game, to make me -- make me look like a liar, make me look like I'm losing my mind.

Ryan: So -- so Richie did this?

Annie: Of course, Richie did this. Ryan, that locket is a reminder of the most tragic day of my life. It is forever stuck on the minute that my mother died. Why would I send it to myself?

Ryan: I don't know.

Annie: Ryan, we threw that locket away in the ocean together. That's how much I wanted it gone.

Ryan: Ok, look, I know that none of this makes any sense. I -- I know that. Just help me understand one thing, please. How did the watch get delivered to Kendall and Zach's house when we hadn't even been staying there for 24 hours?

Annie: Oh, my God. You don't believe me, do you? You've never even met Richie, and you're already buying into his lies.

Josh: Are you out of your mind?

Zach: Hannah, right?

Josh: Yeah -- Hannah. I come into work today, she's sitting at my desk, issuing orders like she never left.

Zach: She took your desk, huh?

Josh: You think this is funny? Her coming back into your life, into Kendall's life?

Zach: Don't read too much into it. I gave her her job back -- that's as far as it goes.

Josh: Yeah, until it goes further.

Zach: Meaning what?

Josh: Well, that's the question of the day, isn't it, Zach? The one you never answered.

Zach: I will answer it the same way I answered it before -- this is none of your business.

Josh: Her being here right now is definitely my business. Did you sleep with her before she took off?

Zach: Are you jealous right now?

Josh: Oh, you know, don't insult me.

Zach: You're right. I should've given you a heads-up -- my mistake.

Josh: No, your mistake is trusting her, unless, of course you think her just suddenly reappearing here is all about business?

Zach: I do.

Josh: Ok, fine. It is your decision. I just hope it doesn't blow up in your face.

Zach: How's the dismantling of Chandler Enterprises going?

Josh: It's not. Apparently, Adam has convinced the board members to put a stop to it. He's turning out to be a pretty lively corpse.

Zach: It's only a matter of time.

Josh: Yeah, maybe, but you know what? It's good to know that Mr. Chandler is going to be living the good life now that we kicked him to the curb. I heard you gave him his house back.

Zach: You heard right.

Josh: You give up a mansion, you bring her back -- am I missing something here?

Zach: I took the house away from Adam and Junior to prove a point. I don't need it anymore.

Josh: Well, then -- then donate it, sell it, tear the damn thing down for all I care!

Zach: Josh, Josh, Josh, Josh!

Josh: Don't give it back to the son of a bitch!

Zach: Calm down! It's going to take more than an ugly house to pull the Chandlers out of the hole they dug for themselves.

Ava: Look, hate to be a bad hostess, but I am recovering from major surgery. But thank you for asking me how I am, by the way.

Babe: How are you?

Ava: I need my rest.

Babe: Great. You can rest while you're filling me in on what exactly it is the two of you are cooking up. And don't say nothing because I know J.R. a lot better than you do.

Ava: Look, he probably thinks that I owe him something for saving my life, which I don't buy, but whatever.

Babe: Owe him what?

Ava: I don't know. We didn't get that far.

Babe: Do you have any idea how badly I want to walk out that door right now and leave you here to fall flat on your face? Because that's exactly what's going to happen if you try to run with J.R.

Ava: Well, don't let the door hit you.

Babe: Ava, his ideas may sound great right now, but J.R. is out for J.R. You cannot trust that he'll take care of you.

Ava: Look, I could vomit all over your shoes right now if that's what you want. I wouldn't take that chance.

Babe: Fusion owns you whether you like it or not, Ava. And sometime soon, we will have a little sit-down just to refresh your memory on what exactly it is you can and cannot do in your spare time.

J.R.: I got a verbal agreement from him just this morning. Everything's falling into place. No, I can't go into the specifics just yet, but we will be in touch. Ok. Thanks. Babe -- good. Glad you came out here. I'd like to clear the air about what just went on in there.

Babe: Hmm. Great. Don't even try it, J.R. Tell me straight up -- what are you after with Ava?

Krystal: Now, I know this might be a little hard for you to understand because your daddy, he's a -- he's a pretty decent guy. But not all men are like Tad. In fact, some of them are downright sneaky. Mm-hmm. One of them in particular has been trying to fool your mama into thinking that he somebody else. Yeah. You know that guy that comes around in the painter's coveralls? Likes to play peek-a-boo with you and makes you smile from ear to ear? Well, for a long time, Mama thought that that was our good friend Stuart. But, really, it was that heartless brother of his, Adam, trying to pull the wool over my eyes. Mm-hmm. See, Adam knows that he is not welcome around this family as himself, but he can't bear to stay away. He misses Colby too much. And as much of a coward as he is to admit it, he misses me, too. But let me tell you something -- today, the jig is up. Today, your mama is going to make that fool regret that he ever let us go in the first place.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: Watch this.

Josh: Still waiting to hear back on the year-to-date earnings on that offshoot company from Taiwan. Apparently, Adam ordered some major downsizing before the quarterlies were submitted, so it affected the average monthly gross.

Zach: I don't care about averages, give me an overall. I want to see how easy this thing is to unload.

Josh: As soon as I find out something, I'll let you know. Cochlear implants? Is Kendall thinking about getting this for Spike?

Zach: Not yet, but I hope she'll come around.

Josh: I wouldn't hold my breath. Saying yes to this means accepting that Spike is deaf.

Zach: He is deaf. That doesn't mean that he'll never hear again. I'm going to figure it out, I'm going to fix it. That's where my focus is right now, what's best for my family. Spike, Ian, Kendall -- today, now.

Josh: Well, if there's anything I can do to make it happen --

Zach: There is something you can do -- you can stop whining about Hannah being back here. Can you do that? Oh, boy. Um -- I'm going to admit something to you, and if you ever repeat it, I will have your legs broken. Sit down. I'm not on my game. And I gave Hannah her job back, because I want to surround myself with the best people possible, I don't want anything to fall through the cracks. I know how good you are. I need you to be better -- extra set of eyes, extra set of ears. You know Adam's going to do anything to get his company back. To be honest with you, that's -- that's the last thing on my mind right now.

Josh: You're right. Take care of your family.

Kendall: If you are reading anything into this, Mother, don't. I was literally just finishing up some work, and then I -- I grabbed this file right before you got here.

Erica: Honey, I think it's just great for you to look for ways to help Spike, I really do. But what I just read in that folder -- honey, that's just not the way. I want you to be realistic about what can be done.

Kendall: You know what? I am so glad that I -- I'm finally back at work. It feels great to be doing something productive.

Erica: Oh, yes, of course, it does, yes. And I hope you can keep up that really positive attitude. Does Greenlee really still come here?

Kendall: Yeah, she was here. And I got through the day without throwing a -- a chair at her head.

[Erica laughs]

Kendall: I would say I -- I deserve a trophy for that one.

Erica: Honey, you shouldn't have to deal with her.

Kendall: Mother, I have to, ok? Zach -- he helps out with Spike, and then we take turns visiting Ian.

Erica: I just can't get over how much bigger Ian has gotten.

Kendall: He is. Did I tell you I got to hold him?

Erica: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Mom, it was -- it was magical.

Erica: Of course, it was -- holding a baby in your arms for the first time.

Kendall: Yeah.

Erica: Kendall?

Kendall: What?

Erica: Is everything all right?

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, of course. Why -- why would you think it isn't?

Erica: Because it isn't. Honey, I know you way too well. I see the pain in your eyes. Oh, my God, I would do just anything to take that pain away for you.

Kendall: Well, whatever pain I'm going through is nothing compared to what Spike has been through.

Erica: I know.

Kendall: Even if they find a cure tomorrow, it won't make up for everything my son has had to deal with.

Erica: I see that you're trying to stay positive about his future.

Kendall: Yeah, I want to be. I mean, I was all ready for -- for Dr. Hilliard to -- to work some miracle. Accepting that Spike will be deaf for the rest of his life -- how do I do that? How do I let that be ok?

Erica: Honey, you just said that you're finished with work for the day. Why don't you come with me, watch my taping, and then we can go out and have some tea, go have a manicure and a pedicure, a little girl talk?

Kendall: Ooh, ok, now you're talking. Yeah, you know what? I would like that.

Erica: Oh, I'm so glad. I would like that, too.

Kendall: Ok. Good. Yeah, I need that.

Erica: Ok.

Kendall: I'm going to go get -- get my stuff.

Erica: Good.

Kendall: Ok.

Erica: Ok.

Erica: Hi. It worked. We're on our way.

Krystal: Stuey, I am so happy you came. You know how excited Jenny gets to see you.

Stuart: Oh, you know --

Krystal: Oh, she just "loves" it when her Uncle Stuey comes to visit.

Stuart: You know how happy I am to play with Jenny -- oh, she's sleeping.

Krystal: Oh. Oh, yeah. Yeah, listen, uh, in -- in the meantime, could you help me change, uh, that light bulb?

Stuart: Yeah, sure, be glad to. I'll be right back, Jenny.

[Stuart chuckles]

Krystal: No, no, no, no, I'll -- I'll do that. I'll do that. You just -- um -- you just hold that ladder, ok? I want to put those big, big, manly muscles to work, you know?

[Krystal giggles]

Krystal: Ok, uh, would you help me up?

Stuart: Yeah -- oh, sure.

Krystal: Ok -- oop --

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: One, two --

Stuart: Careful.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: Ok. Ah. Oh -- so -- uh --

Stuart: Are you -- you sure you don't want me to do that?

Krystal: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, I -- I got it. Oh -- there we are.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: So, um, how is, uh, Adam?

Stuart: Adam? Um, he's -- uh -- I don't -- I don't really know, I haven't seen him.

Krystal: Hmm. Well, you know, as -- as much as I hate to admit it, I mean, I do kind of miss that royal pain in the --

Stuart: Huh. You still really do?

Krystal: Oh, yeah, yeah. You know, I never thought I would end up with your brother, but I tell you, when he stole my heart, I was just -- hmm -- I was a goner, and I had no intention on taking it back.

Stuart: You really loved him.

Krystal: Yeah. Even after all those rotten things he did to me, hmm. Oh -- oh, would you take that?

Stuart: Sure.

Krystal: Hmm. Even after all those rotten things he did to me --

Stuart: Huh.

Krystal: And there were so many, I -- I kind of lost count. Still, I just find myself longing for the good old days.

Stuart: Yeah. He felt exactly the same way.

Krystal: Hmm. Let me tell you what -- changing a light bulb sure does make a girl hot.

Stuart: Huh.

Krystal: Whew! Oh --

Stuart: Ooh --

Krystal: Whew. Oh -- oops.

Stuart: Oops.

Krystal: You want a sip?

Stuart: Uh -- no, no, no.

Krystal: No, I tell you what -- what Adam and I had really was special. And, I mean, he -- he really did some unforgivable things to me, not to mention to Jenny. But even still, it's hard to deny that kind of -- passion. Know what I mean?

Stuart: Uh -- yeah.

Krystal: Ooh.

Babe: Please, go ahead and fill me in, but make sure you have all your little lies in order, because I've heard just about all of them.

J.R.: It's not a lie. It's an idea for a beauty network, with Ava fronting the entire thing.

Babe: Ok, great. So how does this involve Fusion?

J.R.: Well, you know, we'd be selling your products.

Babe: Fusion already sells their products to major department stores all over the world.

J.R.: I'm not talking about department stores, Babe, I'm talking out people. I'm talking about millions of people all hooked up to the web.

Babe: That's a great idea, but bad news -- Ava has no say in Fusion's business decisions.

J.R.: Yeah. Ok.

Babe: Ok. So why are you really here?

J.R.: Ok, cards on the table.

Babe: Yeah.

J.R.: We all know what Ava can do for business. She's not only put Fusion back on the map, she's put you guys back on top. And I still want her working with Fusion when you guys endorse my brilliant idea. So I decided to come here and protect my future investment -- by encouraging her to take better care of herself.

Babe: "Encouraging her"? Encouraging her how?

J.R.: Well, I said something about getting her a TV spot once the network takes off. But that's as far as it went, I swear. She's the one who ran with it, demanding that she gets a piece of the action. She's convinced that Fusion won't pay her any extra money for some spots that I can get her. Now, when I said that I could get what I wanted from you, I meant that my network could negotiate with Fusion in order to get her an appearance fee. That's it.

Babe: Your nose is growing, J.R.

J.R.: Babe --

Babe: No, do not "Babe" me, damn it! Tell me the truth, and if you don't start talking fast, I'm going to Kendall and Greenlee, and I'm blowing this little plan of yours wide open.

Ryan: Annie, I do believe you. I swear that I -- I believe you. It's just that -- I'm just trying to understand a few things, that's all, like how does your brother know where we are and know what we're doing before anybody else does?

Annie: Because he always does, Ryan. I -- I can't explain it, nobody has ever understood.

Ryan: Try me.

Annie: Richie is always one step ahead of everybody. It's like a game of chess, where he knows what moves you're going to make before you even make them. My brother is a total sociopath. He was born with morals but no conscience. And nobody has ever been able to see it -- not my parents, not anybody.

Ryan: They had to have seen something. I mean, nobody is that good.

Annie: Trust me, Ryan, Richie could make you believe that the -- the sun was shining at midnight. He was that good, and my -- my parents -- they were dazzled by him. It was like he was -- he was the messiah, the chosen one, and they wouldn't believe anything different.

Ryan: And you?

Annie: Me? Um -- I was just the jealous brat who didn't deserve such a -- such a loving and -- and good brother.

Ryan: They never took your side?

Annie: Are you kidding me? My parents thought that I was the problem child, because Richie always made it look like that! And he hated -- he hated not being the center of attention. It was the only time you would ever see him, like, lose his cool.

Ryan: Annie, you were right trying to get him help, you were.

Annie: Maybe. But I should've known it wouldn't happen. He's too good at working people, he's too persuasive.

Ryan: He didn't fool everybody -- didn't fool you.

Annie: Remember when you asked me if they blamed me for pushing my dad out the window?

Ryan: They did blame you?

Annie: Yeah.

Ryan: That is sick.

Annie: That's not even the sick part. The sick part is I -- I actually started to believe that I did it.

Ryan: But you know that you didn't, right? I mean, you do know that?

Annie: My greatest fear, Ryan, is that you'll meet Richie, and he'll convince you that I'm crazy, too.

Ryan: He can't. He can't.

Annie: I would die -- I would die if that happened, Ryan. I need you to believe me. I swear I'm not crazy. I need somebody to believe me.

Ryan: Ok, ok, ok, ok.

Annie: I swear.

Ryan: I know you, ok? I -- I know what's inside you, I know who you are, Annie.

Annie: But Richie can make you forget what you know. He'll -- he'll change the way that you look at everything.

Ryan: No, no, he won't, he can't.

Annie: But -- but --

Ryan: No, no, Annie, he can't. Can he erase how incredible you are with Emma and Spike? Can he -- can me make me forget how you won over Kendall -- and I mean, you -- you saved me when Erin was killed. I didn't think I was going to be able to get over that, and you helped me find a way, Annie. And when we realized that Emma was mine, you weren't threatened, you weren't -- you weren't jealous. You welcomed me into her life, you -- you allowed me to be her father right from the start. I -- I will never forget that, I -- I will always love you for that. All right? So, yeah, your brother might be a pro. But he can't change history, he can't change what's happened, what's in here -- that you're my wife, and -- and I love you. Annie, I believe you, and I know you, and I will always, always fight for you.

Annie: Ryan, I --

Ryan: You've told me what to expect from Richie. You've told me. You -- I know what he's going to do. And I am going to beat him at his own game. And then I'm going to make sure that he goes back to prison where he belongs, only this time he's going to stay. I promise.

Erica: Hi. Hi, this is my daughter Kendall. She came to watch the taping of the show.

Woman: Pleased to meet you.

Kendall: Hi. Hi. Hi.

Jason: Hi.

Erica: Sweetheart, would you mind keeping Jason company while I go and just talk to Mrs. Miller about the show today?

Kendall: Of course, yeah, sure.

Erica: Ok, great, thanks.

Kendall: Ok. So you're -- you're a soccer fan, huh? You -- you on a team?

Jason: I play goalie.

Kendall: Goalie -- now, that is -- that is cool. Very, very cool. Ah, goalie -- that's the guy who guards the net, right? I knew that. You know how I knew that? Because there's a goalie in hockey, too, and my husband -- huge hockey nut, bigtime.

Jason: Hockey's cool, but soccer's way better.

Kendall: Yeah, I'm with you there. I -- I would much prefer to hang out all day in the nice, soft grass in the sunshine, over some cold, depressing ice rink. So, how old are you, Jason?

Jason: 10.

Kendall: 10. You know, I have two little boys of my own. They're not quite 10 yet, but they will be someday. I hope they grow up to be just like you.

Jason: Why can't they?

Kendall: It's a long story.

Josh: This is all pretty good, but I can probably get you some more cutting-edge stuff on cochlear implants if you want.

Zach: Thanks. Are we ok here?

Josh: You mean, did you distract me enough to forget about why I really came in here to talk to you? No.

Zach: The redhead that stole your desk.

Josh: Yeah, the redhead -- I don't trust her.

Zach: Ok. Keep an eye on Hannah. I rely on you for a lot of stuff, I -- I know that. And I appreciate everything you've done, and not just around here, but with my family and Ian. I'm glad you're family. I love you.

Josh: Thanks. I'm still going to bust you when I think you're wrong, though.

Zach: I wouldn't have it any other way.

J.R.: Look, by taking my network and aligning it with Fusion, it could be very attractive to investors.

Babe: Who says that Kendall and Greenlee are going to align anything with you?

J.R.: They will if you support me.

Babe: Oh --

J.R.: At the very least, don't bury me. You see -- it's that look! I -- I'm trying to make a difference here, I'm trying to change. I want people to respect me, instead of them thinking, "What fresh evil is he up to now?"

Babe: Again, you cannot blame that on me.

J.R.: You're right. But people change. I -- I walked away from drinking, I turned my back on everything Chandler -- which wasn't easy. My father offered me a partnership, I said no. See, that's how excited I am about getting this company launched, starting from scratch, the way my father did when he first started. I want Little A to be proud of me. I want to be proud of myself. And that hasn't happened in -- well? Have some faith in me, this is a good idea, I know it. Please?

Babe: I can have faith in you, but I -- I'm sorry. I can't give you this shot, especially if it has anything to do with sabotaging Fusion. I may not be a partner there anymore, but I -- I still have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into that company. And besides Little A, it's -- it's the only thing that's made me proud in a really long time.

J.R.: And I get that, and I respect it. And I'm sorry that I went about this the wrong way. I should've never leaked the concept to Ava without talking to you first.

Babe: Let me handle Ava from here on.

J.R.: Agreed.

Babe: And as for your network --

J.R.: I won't even ask you to back me. Just, please, keep this on the wraps, this idea, until it's the right time for me to pitch it to Greenlee and Kendall? If you really do believe in me, and you have faith in me, just give me this chance.

Babe: I guess it wouldn't hurt to let you talk to Kendall and Greenlee.

J.R.: Thank you.

Babe: But Ava is not your responsibility.

J.R.: I -- I won't -- I won't do it again. You have my word.

Babe: Where have I heard that before?

J.R.: But this time I mean it.

Babe: Uh-huh. Better.

Ava: Hmm -- I'm impressed, J.R.

J.R.: You were listening?

Ava: I mean, I knew you were a weasel, but I didn't know you had all those brains.

J.R.: I'll take that as a compliment.

Ava: Yeah, my God, J.R., you almost had me feeling sorry for you there for a sec. I mean, all -- "I want to change, Babe, someone give me a chance. Oh, I want Little A -- B --" whatever his name is -- "to be proud of me"?

J.R.: That wasn't a lie.

Ava: Right. So how fast do you think this can happen?

J.R.: How fast will what happen?

Ava: Breaking my contract with Fusion -- that is your plan, isn't it?

J.R.: Do you have a problem with that?

Kendall: So what do you want to be when you grow up?

Jason: It's a tie between a -- a lawyer, a scientist, or a basketball player -- depending how tall I get.

Kendall: Well, I'm sure whatever you choose, you'll make your parents really proud

Jason: Grownups always say that.

Kendall: That's because it's true. My boys make me proud every day. They've come through a lot.

Jason: Like what?

Erica: Jason? Hi. We're on in five minutes.

Kendall: Wait a minute -- you're -- you're a guest, too? I thought that it was just your mom.

Erica: Uh, Jason is not just a guest. Jason is actually the star of the show.

Stuart: I wish you would go to Adam and tell him what you just said.

Krystal: Uh-uh.

Stuart: Yes, yes -- he's a hard habit to break.

Krystal: I -- I couldn't.

Stuart: No, of course, you could, and he would love it. I guarantee it, you'll make his day -- I mean, his week -- his whole life.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: You really think he feels the same way?

Stuart: Oh, I know he does.

Krystal: Well, then why couldn't he have just told me that, instead of coming over here with these corny reasons to drop by, hiding behind some lame excuse? I just wish for once he had the nerve to be honest and upfront about the way he feels.

Stuart: Well, he will now, now that he knows the way you feel. He was afraid you'd laugh in his face -- or spit in his face.

Krystal: Oh -- well, can you blame me, after the way he treated me when I was in labor? Not to mention the way he treated Jenny the first week in her life.

Stuart: He regrets that so much. I know he does.

Krystal: Well, I do admit there is a -- huh -- there is a pull between us.

Stuart: Oh, yes, there is, there sure is.

[Krystal laughs]

Krystal: And I am hot for that man.

Stuart: Oh, go tell him that. Just go right now -- right now and tell him.

Krystal: Oh, you -- you bastard, you.

Stuart: Huh --

Krystal: You didn't think I knew it was you the whole time?

[Krystal puts her arms around Stuart and gives him a big old kiss]

Krystal: Oh, my God. Stuart?

Stuart: Uh-huh?

Krystal: It's -- it's really you?

Stuart: Yeah.

Wes: Hey-hey. This is the only job I ever had where I look forward to the boss coming in.

Babe: Well, that's very nice of you to say, but, um, do me a favor.

Wes: Mm-hmm?

Babe: Don't think of me as the boss right now.

Wes: Ok.

Babe: Is there any chance that I can collect on that date you offered?

Wes: I was just about to clock out.

Babe: Great.

[Phone rings]

Babe: Oh, wait, let me grab this, hold on. Hello? Oh, my God.

Ava: Well, the way I look at it, I mean, I gave Fusion the best two months of my life. And I'm ready to move on, so -- and so are my fans. They're ready for more -- so much more. So if you can get me out of that contract and pay me what I'm really worth --

J.R.: There's no arguments there. But it's not up to me to get things moving, Ava. Get Jonny boy to give up the dough. Otherwise, this beauty network -- it's going to stay a dream. So get moving, superstar. Get the cash so we can dump Fusion and never look back.

Ryan: I know that you're scared, Annie, but you're safe. You're safe here.

[Knock on door]

Ryan: Who is it?

Derek: It's Derek Frye.

Ryan: Hey.

Derek: My officers found a man dead of a drug overdose. He fits the description of a guy who recently robbed The Comeback bar.

Ryan: Ok, so why are you telling us?

Derek: He also fits the description you gave of Annie's brother.

Annie: Oh, my God.

Derek: I need you to come to the morgue to see if you can identify the body.

Erica: I'd like you to meet Jason Miller. He's like many other boys you might see in your neighborhood. He keeps busy with school, friends, sports -- girls?


Erica: But Jason just might be a little bit more exceptional than a lot of the boys you see in your neighborhood. At just 10 years old, Jason is an avid soccer player and fan -- as evidenced by his jersey.


Erica: And Jason also plays baseball, basketball, football, tennis. He enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing. He's a computer whiz, and he's president of his class.


Erica: I mean, Jason, I am exhausted just reading that list. Is there anything you don't do? Oh, there's one more thing that you should know about Jason -- he's totally deaf.

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

Kendall (to Zach): You and my mother set me up.

Adam (to Tad): I'll get my children back.

Tad: You don't just want your children back, you want Krystal.

Krystal (to Stuart): I feel like going over there and hauling off and smacking Adam for doing this.

Derek (to Annie): You sure you're ready for this?
