Ryan: I'm leaving right now. I will be there as soon as I can. Annie?
Annie: Hey, what's wrong?
Ryan: Greenlee stopped breathing. She's at the hospital.
Ryan: I mean, she's fine -- she's fine now. but I told Kendall that we would be there as soon as we can, ok?
Annie: Our daughter -- blonde, dimples? Ryan?
Ryan: Oh -- yeah. No, no, of course, I just -- I -- I had Greenlee on the brain, ok, so I'm -- I'll go to the hospital, I'll meet you there, ok?
Annie: While we're there, I want you to get checked out, too.
Krystal's voice: Just be careful, J.R. If your father realizes you're moving in just to get information about Kate, he's going to be furious.
J.R.'s voice: I'll get what we need for Tad.
[J.R. goes through his father's drawers]
Adam: Why are you going through my things?
Zach: What does that mean, Joe?
Joe: It means there's been a mutation, and this new strain is not affected by our anti-toxins.
Zach: What does it mean in English?
Joe: What it means is it's systematically destroying the oxygen-carrying cells in the blood.
Zach: So you do a transfusion, right?
Joe: No, no, no, that's just a stopgap at best. And meanwhile, they're getting weaker and their organs are closing down.
Kendall: We want to make sure there's plenty of blood in the bank for Greenlee and Frankie's transfusions, so just spread the word, please, and get here right away.
Aidan: Hey. Anybody ever tell you how gorgeous you look in a hospital gown?
Greenlee: Huh. Don't joke. I hate these things.
Aidan: You look beautiful no matter what you wear.
Aidan: Angie -- Angie? Hey, it's all right. It's all right, it's ok.
Greenlee: Help me. God --
Angie: She's not moving anywhere. Page Dr. Sigman and please get me a nurse!
Aidan: Please do something!
Angie: Listen, Aidan, I need you to get back. Greenlee, I'm going to have to intubate you.
Dr. Sigman: What's happening?
Angie: She's asphyxiating. I have to tube her. Give me a seven tube!
Julia: Aidan, I need you to stay back, please.
Aidan: All right, Greenlee, I'm right here, Babe, all right?
Angie: All right, listen, let's go, people! We have to stabilize her and we have to do it fast!
Julia: I'll fix it. Did anyone call Respiratory?
Jesse: You look tired, kiddo. I know you're fighting this thing. I wish I could fight it for you. Listen, I am so sorry I had to leave you and your mother -- when you were so young. But I love you, Frankie, and I know you know that. I never stopped.
Frankie: Dad. Dr. Martin.
Joe: Yes, it's me, Frankie. Don't try to talk.
Joe: Easy, easy.
Joe: Your throat is still sore from the tracheotomy. Well, look, I have an idea. You want to say something, here -- why don't you just write it on this sheet, ok? Yeah.
[Frankie writes down "Dad was here"]
[Monitor beeps normally]
Julia: Her B.P. is leveling off.
Aidan: Does that mean she's ok?
Angie: Get her on a ventilator.
Julia: We'll take care of it. Jada, can you roll the bench right here?
Kendall: Dr. Hubbard, is Greenlee ok?
Angie: For now. But these events are going to happen with more frequency, I'm afraid.
Zach: Joe said the poison's shutting down her system.
Kendall: Can you stop it?
Angie: We're working on that.
Nurse: Dr. Hubbard, Dr. Martin needs to see you right away.
Dr. Sigman: Go. I'll monitor Greenlee.
Jack: Aidan. I just got Kendall's message -- what the hell's going on here?
Aidan: Greenlee's sick, Jack. She stopped breathing.
Jack: What? Why?
Julia: Jackson? Dr. Sigman, this is Greenlee's father, Jackson Montgomery.
Jack: Hi. Um, can I see her, please?
Dr. Sigman: Yeah. Come with me.
Julia: Hey, hey. How are you holding up?
Aidan: I can't believe we're here again, all right, after everything that's happened. She didn't deserve this.
[Jack holds Greenlee's hand]
Kendall: Between you and Ryan and the boys and now Greenlee, I feel like I live at this hospital.
Zach: It does feel like it sometimes, but we're just here till Greenlee feels better.
Kendall: Did you know I wrote a book while you were missing?
Zach: What, you wrote a book? You scribbled some stuff down -- that's what you told me.
Kendall: No, I wrote a book -- I did. Yeah, it was -- it was my therapy, my escape. Greenlee got it published.
Zach: You're kidding me.
Kendall: No, no, I'm not -- huh. It's coming out next month. Yeah. She went behind my back and made me an author. And we were at the office celebrating when she had her attack. I mean, I -- I knew that she wasn't feeling well, but I had no idea how bad it was.
Zach: Hey, hey, hey, hey -- shh. Come on, don't do that.
Kendall: Zach? She hates -- Greenlee hates being at the hospital. She hates it.
Zach: You know what? Everybody hates being at the hospital -- not the people that work here, of course, but -- one thing we know about Greenlee, she's a survivor.
Kendall: Well, I can't just sit around and watch. I have to do something. I have to.
Angie: His numbers are all over the place --
Angie: And I -- I just had to intubate Greenlee.
Joe: Hmm. Nurse, still no word from the lab?
Nurse: I'll go check.
Joe: Yeah, thank you. Oh, there's something else you need to see.
Angie: "Dad was here"?
Joe: Yeah. He wrote that just before you arrived.
Angie: He's hallucinating now.
Frankie: No. No.
Angie: Oh, baby, no. No, it's -- it' s ok. I don't want you to try to talk.
Frankie: He was here, Mom -- right here --
Frankie: Right where you're standing.
Angie: I know -- Jesse is always with us, sweetheart.
Frankie: No, no -- it was real, Mom.
Angie: It's ok.
Frankie: Dad was here.
Angie: It's ok.
Frankie: Dad was --
Angie: It's ok -- that's right. You rest. Mama's going to take care of you.
Joe: Could we step outside, you think?
Angie: It's getting worse, Joe.
Joe: We're doing everything we can.
Angie: Frankie has to survive this -- you hear me? He has to survive this. I lost Jesse in this hospital, and I'll be damned if I'm going to lose Frankie, too.
Adam: You haven't answered my question.
J.R.: I guess I got a little nostalgic, being in my old bedroom.
Adam: Huh. Yes, yes, so you left your old room, and to rifle through my belongings?
J.R.: No. I found what I was looking for.
Adam: Ah -- ha. I haven't seen that in years.
J.R.: You surprise me, Dad. You don't seem like the scrapbook type.
Adam: Yeah, well, Stuart put this together after you left on that tramp steamer.
J.R.: Yeah. Would you look at this? Soccer photos, school ribbons. Yeah. I think report cards -- yeah.
Adam: The detritus of your youth.
J.R.: You actually looked through all this old stuff?
Adam: Of course, I have. I'm proud of these memories.
J.R.: You haven't been proud of me since I was "Junior."
Adam: The minute you walked through that door, back through that door, your slate was wiped completely clean.
J.R.: No one ever really forgets their past.
Adam: Hmm -- well, I'm much more interested in your future.
Richie: What is this?
Babe: Well, that is a triple blast, antioxidant blueberry smoothie just for you.
Richie: Oh, yeah -- that sounds healthy.
Richie: Oh, yeah -- that needs tequila.
Babe: Well, look, you're going to have to start taking care of yourself now that you might have all those years ahead of you.
Babe: You're really scared, huh?
Richie: Yeah, it sounds weird, huh?
Babe: Drink the smoothie. No, it doesn't sound weird -- it's honest. I mean, I would be scared, too. It is the big question of life -- what are you going to be when you grow up? I'm still trying to figure that out myself.
Richie: Well, you're a lot further along than I am.
Babe: Well, you got to start somewhere, Richie. I mean, what was your dream? Everybody has a dream.
Richie: Hmm -- my dream?
Richie: My dream is sitting across from me looking at me.
Annie: Ryan, I really want you to talk to somebody. Even if there's nothing wrong with you physically, maybe you could talk to a psychiatrist or --
Ryan: Oh, wow. Great -- so now I need a shrink, too.
Annie: Ryan --
Ryan: That's fantastic -- you know what? I'll meet you at the hospital, ok?
Emma: Mommy? Mommy --
Annie: What's wrong, sweetie? Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. What's wrong, angel? What's wrong? Mommy and Daddy are right here, sweetheart. It -- it's ok. Go to the hospital, I'll take care of this.
Ryan: Emma, Daddy's got to go to the hospital, because I've got a friend who's really sick. Are you going to be ok?
Emma: I'll try.
Ryan: Oh. You know what? I can stay for a little while.
Annie: Ryan --
Ryan: No, no, no, no, it's ok. Come here. Come to your big dad.
Ryan: Come on over here. Why don't you tell your daddy -- tell me what's going on.
Emma: Bad dream.
Joe: You have to understand, Zach -- this is damn frustrating for us, as well. I mean, a doctor's supposed to have answers, but this is -- this is --
Zach: Because some plant --
Joe: Yes. But you know, you're the one who made the connection, and that gives us a fighting chance.
Tad: Jack? How's Greenlee? Frankie?
Jack: Holding on.
Tad: Well, they know what's causing it?
Jack: Some kind of poison they picked up in the forest there.
Aidan: If they don't find the antidote soon, neither Greenlee or Frankie's going to make it.
Kendall: Hey. Um -- I know it's against the rules.
Julia: No. Take a minute.
Kendall: Thanks. Wow. You look like hell. But, I'm here to change that. Now, don't worry -- I talked to the cute new doctor, he said it was ok. So, I got something for you -- ta-da this is 100% silk, the best money can buy. So, no more ratty hospital gowns. And let's see what we have here -- ah. This. This was my Grandma Mona's. Mom said it was her favorite hair clip. So, if your hair gets matted and all ratty, at least you'll have some bling. It's not charity. I just -- I need you looking your best. I -- I talked to Kelly at Hyperion, and they want me to do a multi-city book tour for "Charm."
Greenlee: Hmm --
Kendall: Yeah. That means fancy dinners, first-class hotel, an expense account -- everything.
Kendall: And I get to bring a guest, and that means you. I need you, Greenlee. It'll be just like old times.
Kendall: Who the hell are you? You!
[Greenlee and Kendall yell]
Greenlee: I'm pregnant. I'm going to have Ryan's baby -- ah! Yeah!
Kendall: Greenlee, I'm so sorry. You had a miscarriage.
Kendall: We have Ryan's sperm, your eggs, and my womb. This is actually possible.
Greenlee: Someone else could carry my baby with Ryan -- and you're volunteering?
Kendall: I'm -- no, we're pregnant. Hmm.
Kendall: I love you, Greens.
Angie: Then I want repeat blood cultures. Listen, is Jackie from the CDC still working with you on this? Well, please, just have her get back to me ASAP. My patients are getting worse by the minute! Listen -- one of my patients is my son. Thank you. Thank you, I'll -- I'll be waiting for your call. Bye.
Angie: Jesse, I need you now more than ever.
[Angie gasps when someone walks up behind her]
Angie: Ah, Tad Martin, I swear you just took 10 years off my life.
Tad: Oh, I'm sorry, baby. I just didn't want to wake up Frankie. Let's go outside, come on. Will you do me a favor -- take a break, ok? Just five minutes, come on. Have a seat. Now, listen, I can only imagine what you're going through. And it's none of my business, but if anybody can figure this thing out, it's you. Now, I know. You are Angela Hubbard, you are unstoppable. I mean, at least we know that this thing is a plant, right -- some kind of root that's messing with Frankie, so how are they going to fix it?
Angie: Well, we're now working with the Department of Agriculture and Poison Control, also the CDC. And we're attempting to coordinate an effort to try and pinpoint the toxin and then develop an antidote.
Tad: Well, it sounds complex.
Angie: It is, and even if we can come up with a viable sample, we won't have the time to test it.
Tad: So, on top of everything, you're worried you're going to have to use Frankie as some kind of guinea pig?
Angie: There's no other choice. I could end up killing my son.
Tad: It's not going to happen. Keep the faith, ok? I don't have many heroes in this life, but you're one of them, and I know you don't want to let me down.
Angie: This is true.
Angie: You know, it just sort of unnerved me when Frankie said that he saw Jesse in his room.
Tad: He what?
Angie: He was probably hallucinating -- it happens.
Tad: Well, you know, I saw Jesse once myself. Yeah, it was after the tornado went through Pine Valley and dropped a house on my head, but I saw him. He was there with Jenny. I mean, I didn't know whether I was dead or alive or somewhere in between, but he knew it wasn't my time, so he showed me the way home. That's what he's doing for Frankie.
Angie: Tad, what if Jesse was here to take Frankie away?
Tad: I don't think so. I think if Frankie is seeing his father, it's because he needs him to help him keep fighting. I mean, that's what Jesse was always best at. And the man I knew would never let his son down.
Ryan: Sometimes I have bad dreams -- did you know that? And sometimes everybody does, and the good news is that they go away just as soon as they come.
Annie: So do you want to tell us what the dream was about?
Emma: It was about Uncle Richie.
Richie: Yeah, I got you a rum and soda. Ahem.
Babe: I thought we were sticking to smoothies, mister.
Richie: Yeah, well, that was before I freaked you out by calling you my "dream."
Babe: Right -- that.
Richie: Yeah. I'm sorry -- I didn't mean to put you on the spot.
Babe: Look, Richie --
Richie: Will you just sit there and down that drink and let me finish? Now, you asked me a question, and I went with my gut. And this whole living concept is new to me, and honestly, how could you pass up on a catch like me?
Babe: Oh, oh, so you're a catch now?
Richie: Yes, I'm a catch. I've got this debilitating, possibly fatal disease, and I am on parole -- that is sexy, right?
Babe: Well, I'm sure there are many women who find that sexy.
Richie: And then there's my smile -- ooh, the ladies love my smile.
Babe: Mm-hmm -- how many ladies?
Richie: That doesn't matter, because I only care about one.
Babe: Well, I have to say you do have a nice smile.
Richie: Hmm, nice enough for you to drop the zero and get with a hero?
Babe: J.R. is a nonissue.
Richie: Oh, he just moved in next door to you.
Babe: Yep, and he moved right back out.
Babe: Yep. The movers were there this morning.
Richie: You think you scared him away?
Babe: Who knows? If there is one thing I have learned being married to J.R. Chandler, it's that things are never what they seem.
J.R.: I'm trying to work the program, live my life one step at a time.
Adam: You can't make a living working the program, son.
J.R.: I'm aware of that.
Adam: So what are your plans?
J.R.: I still like my idea of the online beauty network.
Adam: But you had trouble financing that.
J.R.: Yes, but my media ideas were solid. Sponsorships were lined up. It was all there except -- everything else.
Adam: Well, maybe it's not.
J.R.: What's this?
Adam: Open it.
J.R.: It's a full prospectus for my idea.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I had Barry put that together after I had reacquired Chandler Enterprises.
Adam: Because I thought we could put together a media and online consumer products division.
J.R.: And you want me to run it?
Adam: Yes, I want you to have full autonomy. Chandler Enterprises will be nothing but a parent company.
J.R.: It's my exact proposals --
J.R.: From the product integration to the cell phone platforms.
Adam: Don't act so surprised. For years, I've wanted us to work together, side by side -- a team.
J.R.: Oh. I don't know what to say.
Adam: I want it to work this time, son. I'm going to give you a chance to be your own man -- your own man. And I may regress now and then, but if I do, I want you to call me on it. Deal?
[Adam chuckles as he hugs his son]
Jack: Greenlee's going to make it through this. You know that.
Kendall: God. Jack, I hope so.
Jack: No, Kendall, she is. And when she does, you'll be the reason.
Kendall: Why me?
Jack: Why you? Listen to me. You understand Greenlee. She's never had that in her life -- somebody that gets her totally. You understand each other, you get each other. And you back in her life, being friends with her again? That's the best medicine my little girl could have.
Aidan: Thanks. What I want to do is go in there and make her well.
Zach: That sounds familiar. "You can't control anything, Zach."
Aidan: What, did Greenlee say that to you?
Zach: She did. We went back to the place, and we were just talking, you know, and then --
Aidan: She's definitely good at telling you how it is.
Zach: Yeah, she is, but you know sometimes, guys like us -- that's exactly what we need. We think we have all the answers for those damsels in distress, and sometimes we don't. She's going to be all right, she's strong. She's not going to quit. Look at me -- don't you quit on her. Ok?
[Monitor races, then flatlines as Greenlee begins convulsing]
Julie: Get Dr. Hubbard.
Joe: Come on, Greenlee.
Angie: Come on, Greenlee. Hold on, hold on. There you go, there you go. All right. All right.
Joe: The convulsions have stopped.
Julia: B.P. is stabilizing.
Angie: Damn it, she can't take much more of this.
Zach: Doc? Hey, doc?
Aidan: Angie, please tell me that Greenlee's going to be ok.
Angie: Her body's in extreme duress, but she's stable.
Jack: Angie, was that a seizure?
Angie: Probably a grand mal. We believe that the toxin contains a cortical depressant that triggers seizure activity.
Kendall: But there won't be any permanent damage?
Angie: Well, there shouldn't be.
Jack: Wait -- well, wait a minute! There shouldn't be, or there won't be? Which is it?
Angie: Well, as far as we can tell, she's weathered this setback like the others.
Zach: But this is a new reaction?
Angie: For Greenlee, yes. But unfortunately, it's consistent with what we've already seen in Frankie.
Aidan: Yeah, and Sylvester.
Angie: Dr. Hahn said that Sylvester had several seizures before he --
Jack: Before what? Who the hell is Sylvester?
Aidan: This guy in the woods. He had the same symptoms as Frankie and Greenlee.
Zach: And in Sylvester's case, it killed him.
Jesse: It's ok, Frankie. I'm back now. From now on, I promise you that I will be by your side every step of the way.
Annie: It was just a dream. I know it seemed real, but --
Ryan: But then you wake up and it's all gone. And you're in your house, you're in a place here with your mom and dad, and it's safe. It's perfectly safe, ok?
Annie: Hey, do you want to sleep down here for a little while?
Emma: Can I sleep out here for --
Annie: You can, you can. Hey, if you want to go --
Ryan: No, no, no, it's ok, it's ok, because I got something really important to do first. You know what I got to do is I have to get my very trusty dragon-fighting sword.
Ryan: Yes, it's very, very, very trusting. It's come in very handy before. How do you like that right there? Wha-cha!
Emma: That's not a sword, Daddy.
Ryan: What? It's not? No, you see, what you have to do is you have to use a little bit of imagination.
Ryan: And then it becomes a sword. Pretty cool, huh?
Annie: Hello? Yes, of course, I remember. You have my test results? And are the tests 100% conclusive? I see. Ok. Thank you for letting me know. I can't be Richie's donor.
Ryan: Are you ok?
Annie: If I can't be his donor, who will?
Richie: There's no one else? Yeah, thank you, doc. Thanks for calling. Yeah, thanks.
Babe: Richie, I -- I'm so sorry.
Richie: Hey, I guess some brothers and sisters aren't as close as you thought.
Ryan: For what it's worth, I'm sorry.
Annie: Why? Richie's been horrible to us.
Ryan: Well, he's your brother, and I know you were trying to help him, despite what he's done.
Annie: I just feel sad. Richie's going to die, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Babe: So -- so your sister wasn't a match. I mean, maybe there is -- is a cousin, or -- or an uncle somewhere? I mean, Annie can't be your only hope.
Richie: You're right. There's got to be someone else out there.
Adam: Sorry for the interruption. The Japanese market just opened. Where'd you get that?
J.R.: It was in the scrapbook that Uncle Stuart made.
[Adam grabs the old photo from J.R.'s hands and tears it up]
Adam: Obviously a mistake.
J.R.: This book is about my childhood!
Adam: Some things have to be forgotten. Tad Martin's one of them.
J.R.: You're never going to let it go, will you? This vendetta against Tad!
Adam: We don't need to discuss him.
J.R.: I was looking over these numbers. I'd like to go over them more closely.
Adam: You can review the whole prospectus in the morning.
J.R.: Actually, I'd like to look at them now. You can go to bed. I'll see you at breakfast.
Adam: Good night, son.
[J.R. drops the folder on the table then tries to open the wall safe]
Joe: Angie, there's something we haven't talked about. Would you --
Angie: The conflict of interest? Are you serious, Joe? You're the one who brought me in on this.
Joe: I didn't know at the time that I was asking you to treat your own son. Angie, there are rules about that sort of thing. No doctor should be treating her own family. It's almost impossible to remain objective.
Angie: In this case, I'm asking you to make an exception. You know what scares me is that I think I'm the best doctor for this job, and I still don't have the answer.
Joe: Yeah. We're going to find it.
Angie: We have to. Because I didn't come back home just to see my son die. We have -- have to.
Kendall: Hmm? Is it Greenlee?
Zach: She's resting.
Kendall: Whew. I almost fell asleep.
Zach: Why don't we go home, check on the boys?
Kendall: No, I talked to josh. He said they're fine.
Zach: It'll do you some good.
Kendall: I can't leave Greenlee. She needs to know I'm here for her.
Jack: Erica, it's Jackson. Listen, I'm calling you because -- I wanted to make sure you were taking care of that note from the SEC. Call me when that's handled, ok?
J.R.: He changed the code. Wonder if it's Little Adam's birthday.
[Keypad beeps as Adam watches]
Adam: Hello, it's Adam Chandler. I have a job for you.
[Annie cries while watching Emma sleeping]
Babe: I really am sorry, Richie. I am.
Richie: Hey, hey -- at least I got you to spend some time with me. That's got to count for something, right?
Richie: Oh. Hey, Annie.
Annie: I just got a call from the hospital.
Richie: Yeah, me, too. I guess we made that pact for nothing, huh, sis?
Annie: How are you?
Richie: Um -- I'm -- I'll live for now.
Annie: Is there anything else I can do?
Richie: Um -- no, Annie. You've -- you've done all you can do, and thank you. Hey, give little Emma a kiss on the cheek for me from her Uncle Richie, ok?
Babe: Annie feels bad, doesn't she?
Richie: Yeah, I guess she does.
Babe: Well, hey, look, if -- if there's anything good that's come out of this -- I mean, at least you know now you have a family.
Richie: You're right, Babe. I do have a family.
Angie: This isn't working.
Joe: They're working as fast as they can.
Angie: Then they have to work harder. I want Sigman in that lab 24/7 until he produces an antitoxin that we can use.
Joe: Ok, ok. I'll talk to him.
Angie: All right, thanks, Joe. I'm going to go see about Frankie.
Tad: You look like you could use some coffee. Come on, I'll buy you a cup.
Joe: Yeah, I could, actually.
[Jesse hides from Angie as she enters Frankie's room]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Babe (to Krystal): You just sent J.R. on a suicide mission.
Greenlee (To Ryan): Do I look hot or what?
Ryan: You look beautiful.
Joe (to Angie): Antidote is ready. We shouldn't wait.
Angie: Please let this be ok.
