Tad: So, are you ready to finish your breakfast like a big girl? Come on. You need those calo -- oh.

Krystal: Oh.

Tad: Going at it, you're a big girl.

Krystal: Good morning, peanut.

Tad: Yes.

Krystal: Tad, is there any coffee?

Tad: Yeah, it's on the counter -- I got it, I got it. Coffee's in there. Yes, yes, yes. Drink up, my little beautiful -- oh, yes, you are a growing peanut. You hear that -- a growing peanut.

Krystal: Oh.

Tad: You're such a good -- you're such a good girl.

Krystal: Honey, you look like hell.

Tad: Well, thank you.

Krystal: What, did you stay up next to the crib all night?

Tad: Yeah, I'm going to have to get myself a more comfortable chair.

Krystal: Hey, little pumpkin --

Tad: Come on, I told you. I got her, all right, I got her.

Krystal: Tad, you really think you have to protect Jenny against me? Tad, come on, now, we're adults. We have to talk about this.

Tad: You want to talk? Fine, you go ahead. Knock yourself out.

Krystal: All right, look, I know that you're upset that Adam was holding Jenny --

Tad: Upset? Upset? You have no idea. This goes way beyond "upset," ok? No matter what he spoon-feeds you, he is still the man that tried to sell this little girl. He is still the man that stepped over you, so you gave birth on the floor. You could've easily died because of him.

Krystal: Are we ever going to get past this, Tad?

Tad: Yeah, I don't know. Are we? How do you get past it? Oh, forget it. It doesn't matter anyway.

Krystal: Tad --

Tad: I don't care what he says. Adam Chandler only cares about Adam Chandler -- that's the way it is, that's the way it's always going to be. Everybody else is an enemy or a possession. The fact that I had to walk in and find him with his claws all over her, and you standing there like it was right as rain? "Upset" doesn't even begin to cover it, Krystal. That's more like my worst nightmare.

[Keys rattle and door unlocks, opens]

Adam: How you doing, son?

J.R.: I'm getting along.

Adam: Have you remembered anything about the night Zach Slater was hit? Going anywhere, seeing anyone?

J.R.: Nothing. My mind is blank. Even if there was something in my head, it's not coming out.

Adam: Well, have you been in there long enough to prove whatever it is you wanted to prove?

J.R.: I'm not partying in here. And just to remind you, those doors are locked. I don't get to pick and choose when I leave.

Adam: No -- yes, you can. I just made your bail.

Amanda: Ah, good morning, J.R.

J.R.: How about a kiss, huh?

Amanda's voice: Ok, there will be plenty of time for that.

Amanda: Yeah, yeah.

[Video winds]

Amanda: Oh, I wish I could fast forward you in real life.

J.R.: Promise to cuddle up. Could we skip to the good stuff?

Amanda's voice: You are such a bad boy.

J.R.: That's why you're hot for me.

Amanda's voice: The badder you are, the hotter I get. So, why don't you tell me every mean, dirty --

J.R.'s voice: Dirty --

Amanda's voice: Nasty, lowdown, evil thing you have ever done.

[Video stops]

Amanda: Well, it is a good thing I fully charged those camera batteries.

Kendall: All right, Spikey, this is your big day.

Ryan: That's right. Your mom and dad are on your side all the way.

Annie: Is there anything you need?

Kendall: Zach.

Annie: I wish I could.

Kendall: I know.

Erica: Hi. Good morning.

Kendall: Oh, hi.

Erica: Hi. Everything is taken care of, honey. I brought you a change of clothes. This space is reserved just for us. I ordered lunch, and I just spoke with Rachael, and she's taking very good care of Ian, as always.

Kendall: Oh, thank you, Mom. You've just -- you've thought of everything.

Erica: Yeah. I know it's terrifying. Don't you worry about a thing, because this little boy -- he's so strong, and he comes by it honestly.

Ryan: He's going to come through this surgery like a champ, Kendall, like a champ.

Joe: Morning, everybody.

Kendall: Hi, good morning.

Joe: There he is.

Kendall: Yeah.

Joe: This little guy is very popular in this hospital. All the nurses are competing to scrub in on this operation.

Kendall: Oh, that's so nice.

Joe: Yeah, listen, this operation is going to change Spike's life for the better, believe me. We know what we're doing here, he's in good hands.

Ryan: Hey, do you think I could just steal him for a quick sec here? Can I steal you --

Kendall: Of course.

Ryan: For a little sec, just before he runs off.

Annie: Oh.

Ryan: I just want to have a little -- a little man-to-man over here, you know? Just a little man-to-man. I just I wanted to say -- can I have your hand like this? I just want to say that I need you to be really tough for your mom, ok, because sometimes your mom worries.

[Spike babbles]

Ryan: Sometimes your mom worries, yeah. So what's going to happen is you're going to go, and you're going to take a little nap. And then when you wake up -- when you wake up, you are going to be ready for whatever life that you want. Ok? Wait till you hear how many people love you.

Kendall: Good boy.

Ryan: Here we go.

Kendall: Ok, yeah. Oh. I love you so much. I do, I do.

Annie: He is going to be ok.

Ryan: Yeah. Not a doubt in the world.

Joe: Well, I think we're ready for Spike in pre-op.

Kendall: Ok.

[Spike babbles]

Kendall: All right, ok, honey, you are going to do great. You are such a strong boy, ok? And we are going to be here when you get back. Ok? Ok. Ok.

Joe: Hey, little fellow. Ooh -- we'll take good care of him, I promise. Come on, honey. Come on.

Erica: Joe, how long will the surgery take?

Joe: A few hours. And we'll keep you updated on conditions throughout.

Erica: And -- and this is it? This is the miraculous device?

Joe: Yeah, this is it. This is the cochlear implant. Now, we insert this end into Spike's head, and then that's connected to this, which is placed behind the ear. The implant directly stimulates any functioning auditory nerves with electrical impulses, and that's it. So, now I'm going to keep an eye on Spike, and I'll come back and let you know how things are going.

Erica: Ok.

Kendall: What if he's not ok? I mean, what if something happens to him?

Ryan: Kendall -- Kendall --

Kendall: No, no, what mother sends her son into surgery over and over again?

Annie: You didn't choose this, Kendall. You're doing what's best for your child.

Erica: Yes, honey, of course, you are, and Spike knows that you love him. He knows it.

Kendall: Mom -- until the next time we have to come here. I mean, when will it finally be the last time?

Erica: Joe has complete faith.

Kendall: I know, Mom.

Ryan: Hey, why don't you grab a seat.

Kendall: No, I -- I don't want to sit down. I don't want to -- I don't want to act like this is some routine procedure.

Annie: Do you want some coffee or something?

Kendall: No, I want my husband. Ok, I want -- I want Zach to come here and tell me everything will be ok, ok? He is always here, always. Where is he? Where is my husband? Where is he? I need to find him.

Josh: Hey. I -- um -- I thought you might want something of Zach's.

Kendall: Thank you.

J.R.: I told you I can handle this.

Adam: I called in a favor, I pulled some strings with a judge.

J.R.: That must really hurt the poor guy.

Adam: Nothing illegal or fraudulent about it.

J.R.: Huh. There's a first.

Adam: Your morals aren't so high that you can't accept a legitimate defense, are they?

J.R.: Ok, let's say I get out of here. What do you get in return?

Adam: I simply negotiated the terms of the bail.

J.R.: What terms?

Adam: Well, it's simply house arrest. Once you accept that, you can go.

J.R.: Sounds too easy.

Adam: Those were the terms.

J.R.: All right, fine. Have a steak sent over to my yacht, I'll race it there.

Adam: Hold on, it's not quite that simple.

J.R.: What, the paperwork? That's for the lawyers.

Adam: No, no, no, um -- you see, the judge is worried that the yacht makes you a flight risk. And so in order to achieve it, I had to consent to being responsible for you.

J.R.: Excuse me?

Adam: It's simple. "House arrest" is my house -- the Chandler Mansion.

J.R.: Uh-uh. No way.

Amanda: Too bad, J.R. -- no room service in the big house. Oh, yeah. We will do whatever you want.

J.R.: Ok, it was an accident -- I tried to kill Babe.

Amanda: Way to show the love.

J.R.: I'm going to show you some love.

Amanda: Hey, hey, hey, not yet, big boy. Oh -- so cheesy.

Amanda's voice: You have not even scratched the surface of your top-10 list -- like when you faked your own kidnapping. You dragged me along for the ride?

J.R.: Because I was mad at my dad. I just wanted to get back at him. But you and I -- we had some good times, huh?

[J.R. chuckles]

Amanda's voice: Except when I thought I was going to die.

J.R.: Yeah? That was a minor glitch. It was a brilliant plan, it's just too bad it blew up in my face. It's kind of like that Greenlee gig.

Amanda's voice: What "Greenlee gig"?

J.R.'s voice: Oh -- all I was supposed to do is, you know, dangle some nonexistent embryos in her face -- you know, a little blackmail -- and she was supposed to take it and pass off the Fusion stock to me. But the beeyotch took the pass.

Amanda's voice: You have been a very --

J.R.'s voice: Oh --

Amanda's voice: Very bad boy, J.R.

J.R.'s voice: Mm-hmm?

Amanda's voice: You have to be punished.

J.R.'s voice: Yes.

Amanda's voice: Now, how are we going to do that?

J.R.'s voice: Hmm.

Amanda: Well, that is an easy one -- this little girl is finally going to make the Chandlers pay. Hmm.

Krystal: Tad, we're both Jenny's parents. We have to figure this out.

Tad: You can figure all you like. Told you a dozen times -- whatever you figure out isn't going to involve Adam.

Krystal: I cut my hand, Tad. Adam helped me and Jenny. He drove me to the hospital -- did you forget that?

Tad: Ok, so let me see -- a cut on the hand merits chauffeur service, but go into labor on the floor -- that means you got to hitchhike? Ooh, what a guy.

Krystal: Oh, God, I am so tired of apologizing for my feelings. I'm not asking you to approve of them, but I do expect you to respect my feelings and me. Adam is in my life, Tad, and that's not going to change.

Tad: You know something? The minute you started to drift back towards him, I knew this was coming. I knew it the night you stayed out -- that we were coming to this.

Krystal: What do you mean, "this"?

Tad: It is a parent's primary obligation to defend, to protect their child, especially a small child.

Krystal: Oh, are you trying to educate me on being a good parent?

Tad: Therefore, I cannot allow you to jeopardize our daughter's welfare based on your feelings for Adam -- your feelings for Adam aren't what this is about.

Krystal: If we had anything in common, it's the fact that we would go to great lengths for our children, and you know I would sacrifice the world for my children.

Tad: That's not true, either, is it? Because after everything he's done, you're not prepared to sacrifice your feelings for Adam, and I am sorry, Krystal. I'm really sorry to see you being used the way you are.

Krystal: "Used"?

Tad: I am really sorry you haven't got the pride that -- to keep you from going back to a man that left you in labor on the floor. I'm really, really sorry about your feelings, but do I respect them? Hell, no -- I don't respect your feelings at all.

Kendall: This isn't right. Spike has always had Zach here defending him.

Josh: Well, when Zach returns, he'll be here to defend Spike again.

Kendall: Zach has been here for Spike every step of the way, 100%. Even before Spike was born, Zach stopped the doctors from taking him too early.

Josh: You know he would give his life for you and those boys.

Kendall: Ok, where is that nurse? Why is she taking so long?

Josh: We'll get an update soon. It's ok.

Kendall: Yeah, but what if something happened?

Josh: I know these people, Kendall. The nurse, the anesthesiologist, the ENT -- they know what they're doing.

Kendall: I wish people would stop saying that. They are cutting my son's head open.

Josh: Ok, they don't know what they're doing, their track record just shows that they're really, really lucky.

Kendall: That's more like it.

Annie: Ok, one nonfat latte --

Kendall: Thank you.

Annie: One coffee, black.

Josh: Thank you.

Ryan: Hey --

Kendall: Hey.

Ryan: We know that we haven't been here for you with Zach missing.

Kendall: That's ok.

Ryan: No, Kendall, it's not.

Annie: But we're here now, whatever you need.

Kendall: And you guys -- here I have Josh over here looking out for Cambias for Zach, and then the two of you. I know you've been going through so much stuff with your brother, and I'm sure it's been awful. But you're here now, and that's what counts.

Erica: Ok, hi, I'm back.

Kendall: Hi. All right, so here we are -- one big, not-so-happy, dysfunctional family.

Erica: Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Erica: Thank you so much for coming. This just means the world to -- to us.

Jack: I still think of Kendall as my daughter. Excuse me. Hey, you.

Kendall: Hey.

Jack: How's Spike?

Kendall: Well, no news yet.

Jack: How are you?

Kendall: I'm -- I'm keeping it together -- barely. Um -- Jack, about Greenlee --

Jack: No, no, no, no. We're not going to talk about Greenlee today, we're not going to talk about who did what to who. This day is about Spike.

Kendall: Thank you.

Jack: We have plenty of time to deal with all this, but we will deal with it.

Ryan: Hey, Julia. Any news on Spike? Anything?

Julia: So far, so good.

Ryan: Really?

Kendall: Thank you.

Julia: Yeah, yeah.

Ryan: Oh, that's great. Ok. You hear that?

Kendall: Yeah. Ok.

Julia: Hey. How's Lily?

Jack: Hey. She's better. Thanks so much for your help.

Julia: Ok, if she needs anything -- or if you need anything --

Jack: I've got your number.

Julia: All right.

Ryan: Hey, guys.

Ava: Hey.

Ryan: Thanks for coming.

Jonathan: Where else would I be, huh?

Ava: Hey, I brought this for Spike. It's, like, a toy that you can record your voice into, and he can practice and sing to.

Ryan: Really?

Annie: Oh.

Ryan: That's awesome. Thanks, Ava.

Ava: You're welcome.

Ryan: It's great.

Annie: I -- I heard you were quite the hero with Lily.

Jonathan: No. I mean, no, I'm no hero. I'm just -- I'm just happy that she's doing better.

Ryan: She knows the whole murder thing is about us, right?

Jonathan: I explained to her that Richie's not going to be killing anyone. Although -- sorry -- but I want to kill him now myself.

Ryan: But you're not going to give him the satisfaction, right?

Jack: Excuse me. Jonathan, good to see you.

Jonathan: How's Lily?

Jack: She's good, she's good. Thank you so much for all your help.

Julia: I was there trying to help her, my -- my heart broke for her.

Erica: Wait -- wait a minute. What -- what's wrong with Lily?

Julia: She had a meltdown. It was -- it was kind of scary for a while, but then Jonathan got her through it.

Jonathan: She's doing better now, and -- and that's -- that's all that matters.

Erica: Well, how long has this been going on?

Julia: A couple of days.

Erica: Jack, my goodness, why didn't you call me?

Jack: Honestly, I never even considered it.

Amanda: Yes, yes, I know my mother's move to Pine Valley Hospital is only temporary. Uh-huh. When she gets done with her evaluation, I would like to upgrade her accommodations. The best -- penthouse, lake view -- whatever people like the Chandlers get. Well, believe me, the Chandlers need to be institutionalized. Oh -- um -- can my mom also get regular spa treatments? Well, don't worry. Money will not be a problem anymore. Huh. Hmm. One for you, Mom, and one for me. Hi! Yes, I am wondering if you have any more of those cute, adorable, sport convertibles -- fully loaded. Great, great. I would like to reserve the red one. Oh, a credit check won't be necessary -- I'll be paying cash.

J.R.: I would rather rot in this cell than have to go back home and live with you -- no offense, Dad.

Adam: You can have your own room back. You can have everything at your fingertips. You're going to forfeit all of that for this? For this cell and -- and visits from Derek Frye, for God's sake?

J.R.: You would do anything -- anything to get me to go back home, even pay off a judge. That's why you did all this, right?

Adam: You're absolutely right. Yes, I admit it, I want you back home. I want you and all my children back under the family home.

J.R.: Playing by your rules. FYI, Dad, I'm an adult.

Adam: Yeah, well, adults make adult decisions, you know. You blacked out, maybe ran over Zach Slater, and then got thrown in jail, arrested. That wasn't my plan. You did that all by yourself.

J.R.: You know, at least in here, I can get some peace and quiet.

Adam: Oh, come on, son. Let me help you. When you're fighting for your freedom, it's wise to accept all the help you can get. I'm your father, let me help you get out of this.

J.R.: No, Dad. I can handle it.

Adam: Then you're a fool.

Krystal: You know what? I feel sorry for you. I feel sorry that you're so judgmental that you won't even try to see the good side of a complex man.

Tad: "Complex"? Oh, that's a pretty word for it.

Krystal: Yeah, yeah, he's so rotten -- and you slept with his wife. I feel sorry for you. You think you are so pure, that you have the right to justify controlling Jenny. And wait a minute, isn't that what you accuse Adam of -- controlling his children?

Tad: I'm not sure you can do anything but be controlling when you're talking about somebody that's less than a year old. But I am sure that at least I've got Jenny's best interests at heart.

Krystal: Oh, please, Tad. Tad, get over yourself. You know this is about you and Adam duking it out all over again, and to hell if you think I'm going to respect your blind hatred for that man.

Tad: So in other words, the only thing you really want to figure out is a guarantee so that Jenny can grow up around Adam, right?

Krystal: Well, I tell you one thing -- I carried that baby for nine months, I delivered her, I am her mother, and I do think I know what's best for my daughter.

Tad: You think you know what's best --

Krystal: Yes.

Tad: And because you're her mother, you think you're entitled to call all the shots.

Krystal: Listen, I have a right to live with my husband. And if you don't agree with that, you can take your self-righteous crap and just shove it!

Tad: Oh, I can do a lot more than that, Krystal. A lot more. Your feelings for Adam are reckless, you are intentionally endangering our daughter's welfare -- therefore, you leave me no choice. You do yourself a favor -- get yourself a good lawyer because you're going to need it. I am suing you for custody of Jenny -- full custody.

Jack: Look, it wasn't meant as an attack or an insult. I just honestly didn't think to call you.

Erica: But you thought to call everybody else in -- in Lily's life, including some people who just, you know, have barely been around?

Jack: Lily's better now, and that's all that's important. I'm very thankful for that.

Erica: Of course, I am, too. Jack, you said that you still think of Kendall as your daughter. Don't you know I feel the same way about Lily?

Joe: Ok. I've been monitoring Spike's surgery. Everything is going as planned.

Kendall: Ok. How much longer?

Joe: A little while more.

Ryan: Well, how's he doing?

Joe: His vitals are good. He's doing very well.

Ryan: Really?

Kendall: Thank you.

Ryan: Thanks, Joe.

Kendall: This is great. Thank you.

Josh: I'm going to go check with the cops on Zach, ok?

Ryan: All right. Isn't that great?

Annie: Very good.

Ryan: Hey, you.

Kendall: Hey.

Ryan: I saw you on the phone before, you looked a little intense.

Kendall: Yeah, I was just checking in with Aidan on our search.

Annie: For Greenlee?

Kendall: Well, Aidan and I think that Zach and Greenlee's disappearance is related.

Ryan: You and Aidan?

Kendall: Yeah. We're playing on the same team now.

Ryan: Well, Aidan's a good guy.

Kendall: He is.

Annie: And you know Zach's always kept a cool head in a crisis.

Kendall: Yeah, actually, he would -- he'd probably have us all in some VIP suite right now.


Annie: Lining up a college marching band to celebrate when Spike's implant kicks in.

Ryan: Yeah, either that, or he'd grab the surgeon, lock him in the attic so he could be on call 24 hours.

Annie: Only the best.

Kendall: Zach is the best.

Ryan: We're going to find him.

Kendall: I know that. I do. He -- he's alive, he's -- he's out there somewhere. Just -- if he would miss this, that means that he must be in real trouble.

Ava: Well, Jonathan, they were -- they were all right about you. You were the only one that could've saved Lily. I -- I just -- I can't get it out of my head -- just the way you were looking at her when you were talking to her. It's -- it was really intense. Um -- it was just like you climbed right in and -- and found her soul and just brought it back out -- it was amazing.

Jonathan: Ava, it -- uh -- it really wasn't that big of a deal.

Ava: No, no, Jonathan, it was -- it was incredible. It's like you two were so connected. I -- it's hard to tell where you stopped and she started. Truly, just -- it was -- it was great.

Jonathan: Are you -- uh -- are you bringing this up now, because you're seeing J.R.?

J.R.: Go home, Dad -- alone. I'll be right here.

Adam: Which is more important to you -- being stubborn in here, or coming home to defend yourself?

J.R.: I failed my marriage, I failed business. Now you want me to go home to humiliate myself in front of the entire family on your leash like a dog? No, thank you.

Adam: Think of your future, J.R.

J.R.: I appreciate your offer, Dad. But to go home would be like leaving one prison cell for another.

Adam: Huh. You're equating my home to this prison cell? Maybe you do belong here. Thank you.

Krystal: You really think that you can take my child away?

Tad: I don't know yet. But if you were a judge, and you had to choose between one parent who had a good home and a big family, and another parent who's in love with a man that tried to sell a child in question, who would you pick?

Krystal: This is not happening.

Tad: Oh, you better believe it's happening, because it's definitely happening. At first, I thought about getting an injunction against Adam, try to keep Jenny away from him. Then I realized he'd just buy his way out of it. Or he'd continue to work on you and wear you down till you caved in.

Krystal: Oh, you really think I could be worked that easily, Tad?

Tad: Oh, come on, Krystal -- go upstairs, look in a mirror. Don't you realize you're this close to moving back in with him? And when you do, I bet cash money you're not going to be willing to do it without your daughter.

Krystal: You're damn right I won't.

Tad: Which means you'd be dragging her along like a stick of furniture into the house of a man that could care less about her -- or worse. And then Adam -- Adam would buy himself a judge, or he would have me framed for jaywalking, just to get me out of the picture, to make it official. He'd do what he always does -- he would try to own everything and everyone.

Krystal: Nobody owns me, Tad -- not you, not Adam.

Tad: Does it mean anything to you that J.R. is in jail again? Do you ever think about the condition that Colby was in before she moved out of that house?

Krystal: Oh, come on, are you going to take credit for that? I stood beside Colby every step of the way, just like I'm going to stand beside Jenny.

Tad: So what? That just means you're going to be the only mother of one of Adam's children that actually wants him to raise one!

Krystal: Oh, God, you know, I think you just enjoy this, Tad.

Tad: I don't enjoy this at all! Are you kidding? I loved what we had. We had a great thing here. I don't want to see it go down the tubes, I don't want to be involved in some kind of custody dispute! But you -- if you're so incapable of seeing Adam for who he really is, then you're not leaving me a choice.

Krystal: Oh, come on, Tad, you do, you have a lot of choices. Oh, jeez. This was dated weeks ago. You were planning this all along!

Tad: I was hoping and praying I'd never have to use these -- they'd be staying in a box forever.

Krystal: But you had them drawn up anyway.

Tad: Krystal, you are a phenomenal mother, there is no question about that. You love your daughters like a mama bear, but you have clearly lost all common sense when it comes to Adam.

Krystal: Oh, and you think so clearly when it comes to the man that you hate the most in this world?

Tad: Clear enough not to serve you with those the second they were drawn up.

Krystal: Well, what stopped you?

Tad: The look on your face. That look on your face when you walked in here the morning after, how bad you felt. I told myself I didn't have the heart to do it.

Krystal: And you're going to do it anyway?

Tad: I don't have a choice. Last night was it, the last straw. I'm beyond all patience.

Krystal: Well, I'm beyond all patience, Tad! You are nothing but a hypocrite and a bully, and you are more than willing to bend the rules when it suits you. And then you have the -- the gall to think you know who's good enough for Jenny?

Tad: She's my daughter, you understand? Mine, not Adam's.

Krystal: No, you're jealous.

Tad: Of you and Adam?

Krystal: Yes.

Tad: Oh, come off it. We are way beyond that.

Krystal: No. I know what you're capable of, Tad Martin. And you are not beyond anything, especially when it comes to Adam. All those things you lost to him over the years, and now you're afraid that you're going to lose Jenny, too.

Tad: Do you hear yourself? You're turning yourself inside out to defend a man that wanted to deny Jenny before she ever drew her first breath.

Krystal: He was devastated, Tad, because I cheated on him with you. But he's gotten past that, and I'm very lucky. It's in the past, Tad.

Tad: That's crap! Adam Chandler is nothing if not dangerous, and I can prove it. What's more, you know I will.

Adam: Who let you in here?

Amanda: I told your new maid we're in business together.

Adam: I pay her to take the trash out, not bring it in.

Amanda: Easy, Adam. I don't think you'll be wanting to piss me off today. Drink? I went down to the cellar and helped myself -- nice stuff.

Adam: Get out before I have you arrested.

Amanda: You know, I do not think you'll want to do that. I have some information that you need.

Adam: No, you have nothing that interests me.

Amanda: You're not interested in something that would prove your baby boy is innocent?

Adam: What are you talking about?

Amanda: I have J.R.'s alibi.

Jonathan: I know all about your visits to J.R.'s jail cell.

Ava: Oh, what, are you following me now, Jonathan?

Jonathan: No. Word gets around fast on you, Ava, ok? It's one downside of being famous.

Ava: Whatever -- look, I was just helping a friend.

Jonathan: "Helping a --" since when are you and J.R. Chandler friends?

Ava: Look, maybe we didn't do the Ava network together, but I felt bad for him.

Jonathan: Oh, so you sneak in, in a disguise?

Ava: Ok, I was with him at The Comeback the night that Zach got run down, and it kind of makes me a witness, doesn't it?

Jonathan: Right. That's fine. Ok. You know, we're not going to talk about this now, and definitely not here.

Ava: Fine, good.

Jonathan: And for the record, I am the only one who could help Lily.

Ava: Well, same with me and J.R.

Josh: Kendall? Kendall, wake up, sweetheart.

Erica: Joe's here.

Joe: The surgery is over.

Amanda: I was with J.R. that night, Adam. When Zach Slater got hit, J.R. wasn't behind the wheel. He was with me, and I can prove it.

Adam: Then you have to tell this to the police.

Amanda: Hmm -- see, I could do that, but J.R. owes me a lot of money -- and I mean a lot. And he hasn't been that nice to me -- in fact, neither have you.

Adam: Yeah, I'm feeling less nice by the second.

Amanda: See? There you go again. I have got to make you Chandlers pay, hurt you so bad that you can never disrespect me again.

Adam: Yeah. How much?

Amanda: J.R. owes me half a million.

Adam: Oh, come on. Please. For -- for what?

Amanda: Ask J.R. -- and then I would need another half million to get him out of jail, plus, pain and suffering for what you did to my mother.

Adam: Oh, no, no, I'm not paying for your hurt feelings or your insane mother's.

Amanda: Oh, I think you will.

Adam: Hmm. Police wouldn't believe your story anyway.

Amanda: They will when they see the time stamp on the video I made. Plus, what's shot on the video confirms it was taken at the time of the hit-and-run.

Adam: You're bluffing.

Amanda: Go all in and call me on it. J.R. doesn't even remember his movie debut, and I bet the cops would watch it over and over and over -- I'm very photogenic.

Adam: Bottom line.

Amanda: One round million, six zeros. Here's my number, in case you forgot it -- from the last time you were blackmailing me. Remember -- you demanded I get you dirt on Jamie?

Adam's voice: There's a bunch of drivel about some orphan brat.

Adam: Ah!

[Adam sighs]

Adam: Oh, there's got to be something here somewhere. Got to be.

Amanda: Hello? Oh, I don't have time for this. Look, if you want to make a deal, call me.

Adam: Um --

Adam: Kathleen Mershon is Julia Keefer's little girl. Dixie. Dixie's the birth mother! Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Yeah, Barry, Barry, it's me. I need you to -- to look into something for me. I think I've discovered Tad Martin's missing daughter.

Krystal: You better think about this, Tad. Once you file those papers, there's no turning back.

Tad: I'm done thinking.

Krystal: Then it's war.

Tad: Yes, it is.

Krystal: And I'm going to use everything that I have.

Tad: I'd expect nothing less.

Krystal: You may have had a lot of battles, but you have never battled me.

[Jenny cries]

Joe: The operation was a success. The device is implanted, and Spike is resting comfortably.

Kendall: He's -- he's really doing ok?

Erica: Oh, thank God!

Ryan: That's incredible news. All right, so when -- when can we see him?

Joe: Soon. You've got one tough little fellow there. I'll have the nurse come and get you when you can see him, ok?

Ryan: All right, great.

Jack: Well, congratulations.

Erica: Thank you.

Jonathan: I knew he was going to be ok.

Ryan: So what happens now, Joe?

Joe: We wait a couple of weeks till Spike heals.

Annie: And then you turn the implant on, right?

Joe: Yeah -- see if it works.

Kendall: He made it, Zach. Spike made it -- and you will, too.

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

Janet (to Richie): I am the last person in the world that you should be offending.

Ryan: Listen, I really need to tell you something that I've been kind of putting off.

Kendall: What now?

Greenlee (to Zach): I did a terrible thing. I am as guilty as everyone says that I am.
