Kendall: I cannot believe I switched my phone with Jackson's at the prison security desk.

Greenlee: At least it was my father who got it. You know he'll return it when he gets your message.

Kendall: True, at least we know nothing bad will happen. Babe, how did the art department do with the Japanese characters?

Babe: Well, it looks like Charm! is on target to deliver rising profit margins in the land of the rising sun.

Kendall: Good, excellent. Ok, Amanda, is this the crossover samples that were sent for the promotion?

Amanda: Yes, these were messengered over today, but they're nowhere near as hot as the stuff we got the other day.

Kendall: Yeah, they feel so cheap. They look even worse.

Babe: I know, I mean, they didn't invest in the amount of fabric, did they?

Kendall: Not at all.

Greenlee: Yeah, that color is so red light district. Only a hooker would be seen in something like that.

Kendall: Yeah, I agree. Can you have this sent back, please?

Amanda: The hookers of America thank you.

Babe: You know what, Amanda? Not so fast.

Aidan: I just thought I'd pop by and see how you're doing.

Tad: Yeah, why? Did Zach fire you already?

Aidan: I was just wondering if you had the welcome mat out front?

Tad: For you, darling, the welcome mat will always be out front. Now, do me a favor and close the door, because you're letting out the air conditioning. Thank God, it's good to see you alive.

Aidan: Well, I would have sent you a postcard, but I didn't know how to order a stamp in Sudanese.

Tad: I can't tell you how much it means to me you saved Jake's life. From what I hear, those rebels don't really like to negotiate too much.

Aidan: It's all in a good day's work, my pal.

Tad: Well, if that's what Slater considers a day's work, whatever he's paying you isn't enough. Hey, I mean it. It meant a lot to me knowing you were the one he tapped to get Jake out of there. It's not like I wasn't saying some prayers every now and then, but I knew if anybody could do it, you could.

Aidan: Tad, stop it. You're going to make me blush. So, what's the new case of the week? Some paranoid wife getting you to trail her cheating husband?

Tad: Uh-uh, it's Kate. It's my daughter.

Jesse: Cassandra, no matter what you might think about me, we have something very much in common.

Cassandra: My mom?

Jesse: Bingo. I know her happiness means as much to you as it does to me.

Cassandra: Ok, you've got my attention, so where are you going with this?

Jesse: Now, look. We both love your mother, right? And we both know she wants us all to be a family. Granted, we are getting off to a bit of a late start, which makes for a pretty awkward situation for all of us, especially you.

Cassandra: You think?

Jesse: I got to tell you, it's a little weird for me, too. I mean, 20 years out there on my own and all of a sudden, bam, I'm a father and a husband again. It's going to take some time getting used to. Trust me, if you're going to have problems, these are the kind of problems you want to have.

Cassandra: Yeah, I know that. And you've been nothing but nice to me, Jesse. You've given me space to reconnect to my mom, to Frankie. It's not that I think you're a bad guy, it's just --

Jesse: It's just I'm not your father.

Robert: Pretty little Cassandra had the elephant the whole time. That diamond must be in that toy because even after 20 long, dusty years, an elephant never forgets. Elephant gun, time to go hunting.

Little Adam: See if you put him like this, and like --

Colby: Adding Little A to the Chandler board? Smart move, J.R., bringing in greater minds than your own.

J.R.: And your contribution to this family is? Yeah, that's what I thought. But you're going to thank me when your platinum card bill arrives this month.

Colby: Where'd you get Dumbo's cousin, Little A?

J.R.: You mean that fuzzy pachyderm? It was with him when Babe dropped him off.

Colby: Weird, it belongs to my friend Cassandra. Maybe she left it here.

J.R.: Little A has a habit of picking up toys anywhere he goes.

Colby: He seems more interested in his dinosaur now. I'll just drop it off for Cass later. Hi, Dad.

J.R.: Well, it's about time. where have you been? I've been waiting for you.

Adam: Since when do I have to clear my schedule with you?

J.R.: Since I've been picking up your slack at Chandler Enterprises while you're dealing with your panic attacks.

Adam: Well, I thank you, J.R., for helping me out. And I don't think I'm going to need your services for long, because the worst of the storm has passed.

Dixie: Don't be so sure about that, sweet cheeks.

Adam: My God.

J.R.: Dad? What's wrong with you?

Jesse: I would never presume to take your father's place, all right? The one you got is pretty damn cool from what I hear.

Cassandra: He's the best.

Jesse: Spoken like a true, loyal daughter. Now, why would I get in the way of that? I would like us to become friends.

Cassandra: Friends?

Jesse: Yeah, friends. I mean, we're so busy bobbing and weaving we're missing the opportunity to really get to know each other. And we owe it to your mother to at least give it a try.

Cassandra: Ok, I'd be willing to give it a shot.

Jesse: And while we're at it, could we sort of lose the over-the-top polite stuff? It's exhausting. Ah, she smiles. See, there's a start.

Cassandra: Ok, truce. But you got to try and understand my position.

Jesse: I want to, I will.

Cassandra: You talk about coming back to Pine Valley after 20 years, everything's new. But it's really strange here for me, too. Pine Valley is a world away from Paris. I'm 18. It was just me and my dad over there. And suddenly, I've got all these people checking up on me, wanting to know where I'm going.

Jesse: Come on, baby, that's family. It's what we do. We care for each other. We look out for each other.

Cassandra: Yeah, it's complicated for me. I don't know if you could understand.

Jesse: Try me. We've got all the time in the world.

Kendall: Can you believe the guards had to scan Spike and Ian's Mother's Day cards? Like for weapons and contraband. As if my mother was going to use crayons and markers to break out of jail.

Greenlee: Must be really tough on you, seeing Erica behind bars.

Kendall: Yeah, it breaks my heart. I still can't believe that my mom's actually in prison.

Greenlee: How's she adapting?

Kendall: Well, considering that she's been in solitary confinement, she is doing surprisingly well. I'm glad that Zach and I were able to celebrate a late Mother's Day with her. The only thing that she says bothers her the most is being away from her family. She can't keep an eye on us, make sure things are going ok. Oh, well, she's just going to have to practice some patience.

Greenlee: She's not the only one who could use a little patience.

Kendall: Ok, who are you talking about?

Greenlee: Jake Martin, he wanted me to help him escape from the hospital. The good news is he's doing better.

Kendall: Oh, well, that's good. Remember when Jake was engaged to Mia? That's right, he couldn't handle the long hours she was clocking.

Kendall: Yeah, and then there was that whole pregnancy scare and that broke them up for good. Oh well, time flies. Ok, so these are the latest sales specs for the last quarter. Now, I think we have to be more aggressive with the European market if we want to meet our projected goals. So, any thoughts? Greenlee?

Greenlee: I'm sorry, what did you say?

Kendall: This doesn't matter right now. What is going on with you? I feel like I just lost you. What's up?

Greenlee: No, no worries, everything's fine.

Kendall: This is me you're talking to, I know better. What gives?

Greenlee: No, really, it's all good. It's just, Aidan wants kids, and I don't.

Aidan: So, Kate, huh?

Tad: Yeah.

Aidan: Fill me in. What are the new developments?

Tad: Well, in the first place, I was able to track down that nurse. You know, Hazel, the one that worked for Madden?

Aidan: Yeah, and?

Tad: Huge break in the case. It turns out Kate was adopted in New Mexico.

Aidan: Well, that narrows down the search. Where are you going to go from here?

Tad: Basically, I compiled a list of all the adoption agencies that were open for business five or six years ago in New Mexico, but lately I've been concentrating on this series of articles. Take a look. It's about shady adoptions, baby farming, it was also going on around the time she was placed.

Aidan: Tad, this could be it. This really could be it. This could be the little gem that you've been looking for. I'm serious about my offer, man. You know, about dropping everything and helping you out. You just say the word, and I'm there for you.

Tad: I know, and I appreciate it. And I just may take you up on it. I'm this close, this close. I can feel it. For some reason, I can't explain, Dixie's got something to do with it. I'm going to find our daughter and bring her home soon.

J.R.: Dad, is there something seriously wrong with you?

Adam: No, nothing at all. Just a phone call that I was supposed to make and the time has gotten away from me.

J.R.: The phone call can wait. Where did you find this?

Adam: I've never seen that before.

J.R.: That's bull and you know it. I was just telling Little A about this exact same giraffe that my mom gave to me. And then, boom, it just appears. Just like that photo of my mom shows up out of the blue. What are you trying to pull?

Dixie: Go ahead, Adam, tell our son who really put those things there, hmm?

Adam: Shut up.

J.R.: That's the best you can do? You tell me to shut up. I stepped into Chandler Enterprises for you when you needed me. I've been nothing but understanding while you've been trying to get a grip. Well, for the last time, you leave my mother out of this. She's off limits.

Adam: J.R., I swear to you, I haven't done anything. That picture, it was not my idea.

J.R.: Oh, whose idea was it?

Adam: It's hers, damn it. Dixie, your mother, is haunting me.

Cassandra: It's like where do I fit in? You know, I look at you and Mom, even Frankie. You guys have all these friends here that know you and have loved you for years. There's a history there that I'm not a part of.

Jesse: Baby, history takes time.

Cassandra: I know. But it doesn't make me feel any better. And it's not that I'm jealous or anything.

Jesse: I know that, I know that.

Cassandra: It's just, when I look at you guys, it's like I'm looking through a window, and you guys are on the other side smiling at me, calling me to come in, but I don't have the key to open the door.

Jesse: Enter the poet. So, you're the big outsider always looking in?

Cassandra: That's right.

Jesse: Wow, well, Cassandra, we've got a lot more in common than we thought.

Robert: I'm an outsider looking in on both of you.

[Robert puts down his binoculars and prepares a syringe]

Greenlee: I don't believe I just said that.

Kendall: Don't be so hard on yourself. It's normal. Ok, so you don't want to have kids right now, you want to wait until you've been married a few years and then start a family.

Greenlee: Maybe.

Kendall: Just maybe?

Greenlee: I don't know, I really think maybe I don't want to have kids ever. As in never.

Kendall: I can't believe that.

Greenlee: Neither can I, but it's there. That feeling.

Kendall: Ok, you ask me a few years ago, I didn't want kids either. But Greenlee, look at me now, I don't know what I would do without Ian or Spike.

Greenlee: You're different.

Kendall: Those maternal feelings that flip on and off, they come flooding through the moment you look at your child. It's instant. It's irreversible.

Greenlee: Maybe for you, Kendall, maybe for most women. But in my heart, I don't believe having kids is for me.

Babe: I need your opinion on something.

Amanda: Yes, those clothes are too tacky, even for you.

Babe: Ha-ha-ha, bee-otch.

Amanda: All right, you want the straight scoop? I'm here to help. No sugar coating here. Dr. Dillon's advice corner is always open for business.

Babe: You are not going to believe this, but I assumed that J.R. was lying.

Amanda: Naturally.

Babe: But it turns out that he was telling the truth the entire time.

Amanda: Well, J.R. does have a track record for dishonesty. Are you sure he's telling the truth this time?

Babe: I now have reason to believe that Richie set up J.R. all along. I mean, he put him in bed with that Hepatitis hooker. Her name's Treena. And Richie has met her more than once now.

Amanda: Well, there are other reasons for men to talk to prostitutes.

Babe: No, I know that, but Richie was having a pretty intense conversation with her. I mean, I have to prove that Richie set up J.R. I just don't know how I'm going to do it.

Amanda: How? I think the real question is why? Why is it so important to you to prove that J.R.'s telling the truth?

J.R.: My mother's haunting you? Now I know you have really lost it.

Adam: No, no, J.R., I swear, Dixie came to me.

J.R.: Yeah? Did she talk to you? What did she say, Dad?

Adam: She said that I had to repent for all my sins, and there have been quite a few.

Dixie: That is not at all what I said. You can never tell the whole truth, can you?

J.R.: So, are you saying that this was a dream?

Adam: No, no, it was not a dream.

J.R.: You are pathetic, Dad. Using my dead mother as a way to justify your crazy behavior.

Dixie: Jealousy, is that it, Adam? Are you jealous of our son? How handsome and smart and young he is?

Adam: Shut up.

J.R.: Hey, buddy, I need you to go in the kitchen and go get your Aunt Colby, ok? But you stay in there with Lucretia. Come on.

Dixie: You are the one who should be quiet, Adam, because this is it. The final countdown to where it's all going to be decided.

Adam: What is going to be decided? I want answers. Tell me. I need to know. I demand to know.

Dixie: You're in no position to demand anything.

Adam: Damn you, Dixie, damn you back to hell.

J.R.: All right, that's it. This ends now.

Aidan: I meant what I said, Tad. I'll help you out. You just say the word, but I'm really happy that you're closer to finding Kate.

Tad: Yeah, I just don't want to get overconfident. The last thing I need to do right now is get a case of the yips and miss something.

Aidan: Yeah, I know what you mean.

Tad: The good news is I finally got a couple of major breaks to blow some heat on a cold case. And, not for nothing, but speaking of heat, how is that fiancée of yours? Has she been able to contain her ardor since your heroic return to the States?

Aidan: No, she hasn't, and I like it that way. I'm glad that she can't contain herself.

Tad: Yeah? Yeah? You don't have to tell me. I can imagine. Yeah, it's kind of hard to keep the muzzle on all that enthusiasm.

Aidan: You really are bad.


Aidan: She made me promise never to go near a bullet again.

Tad: Ah, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho. Stop everything. I can't allow that. That's a slippery slope, baby. She starts outlawing bullets, next thing you know, she'll put the kibosh on bowling night. And all I'll be able to say is, "Welcome to married life, chum."

Aidan: I kind of like having someone worry about me all the time, though, you know? I mean, Greenlee and I have been through a lot this year. We have a new appreciation about life, and we just want to savor every minute. Which is why we've moved our wedding day up to June.

Tad: Really?

Aidan: Uh-huh.

Tad: Good on you, mate. Means I better stop wasting time. I've got to get my monkey suit out of the mothballs, make sure I'm still devastating.

Aidan: Well, good luck with that.

Tad: Oh, ho. Who do you think you're talking to? Let me tell you something. Some men, comme moi, are born for a tuxedo. Don't you worry, though. I'll take it easy on you. It's always such a tragedy when the best man is better looking than the groom.

Greenlee: I'm as surprised as you are, Kendall. I mean, I really thought I wanted to have children. But I talked about this with Ryan, and I tried to with Aidan, and --

Kendall: And?

Greenlee: And it just makes more and more sense. No pitter-patter of little feet for me.

Kendall: Ok, I don't need to remind you how far you were willing to go to become a mother, do I? I mean, Greenlee, you were desperate to have Ryan's child.

Greenlee: Yeah, and when I found out I couldn't carry a child, I was devastated.

Kendall: Yes, I remember.

Greenlee: Yes, and it meant so much to me that you offered to be my surrogate.

Kendall: Even though things went crazy?

Greenlee: I understand why you did what you did, Kendall.

Kendall: If I didn't, we wouldn't have Spike.

Greenlee: Oh, Spike, I mean, I wanted to be a mother so badly, I took off with him, and he could have been killed in that car accident.

Kendall: I don't want to think about that.

Greenlee: Neither do I, but I did those things, Kendall. And I'm just realizing how selfish I was. Do I really want to be a mother? Am I really cut out for it? No.

Babe: It's important for me to set things straight with J.R., because once again, I jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Amanda: Oh, hey, I jumped there, too. I mean, he has given everyone plenty of reason to doubt him in the past.

Babe: See, that's just it. It's the past. I mean, J.R. is really trying to be a better man, and I just refused to believe it. I mean, I feel terrible about it, Amanda, and I want to make it up to him somehow.

Amanda: Ok. So you want my take on this?

Babe: Absolutely.

Amanda: Well, that all sounds nice, Babe. Nice and plausible, but what's the real reason? Come on, what is the real reason you care to prove that Richie set J.R. up?

Adam: J.R., your mother wants to send me to hell.

J.R.: That is enough, you lunatic.

Colby: J.R., what's wrong? What's going on?

J.R.: I will not let you drag my mother's memory down. What kind of sick, perverted game are you playing? What are you trying to accomplish with this?

Adam: No, it's not a game. It's not a game. She's right here. Your mother's came -- came back from the dead to torture me. She's right here. Dixie, show yourself.

Colby: Daddy, stop it. This isn't funny.

J.R.: All right, all right, you know what? Let's all just stay calm, ok? Dad, just calm down.

Dixie: [Laughing]

Adam: Calm, calm? I hear laughter from hell. Stop it! I can't take anymore. Stop, stop!

J.R.: All right, Dad. Why don't I take you upstairs to your room? You can lay down and relax.

Adam: No, no, no, there's no running away from her. There's no escaping her, no. Just stop, stop it, stop it!

J.R.: Colby, I want you to call this guy, ok? Here is his number. Tell him to get over here, ASAP.

Colby: Who is it?

J.R.: Don't ask questions. Just make the phone call.

Adam: J.R., you have no idea what I've been going through. She's here torturing me everywhere, everywhere I go. She got herself into the jet plane, the private jet. 20,000 feet in the air, she's still mocking me.

J.R.: So, you're saying that Mom's a ghost?

Adam: Yes, yes, I'm saying she's a ghost. Yes, she's a ghost. She's right here, and she's making my life miserable.

J.R.: Ok, so you're saying that Mom's a ghost, and you can see her. But, Dad, I can't see her, ok? So why don't you show me where she is? Tell me.

Dixie: Proceed with caution, Adam. You're playing with fire now. Don't want to get burned.

Jesse: You know, I've also looked through that window you're talking about.

Cassandra: How so?

Jesse: You kidding me? Out there all that time by myself, I couldn't help but feel like an outsider. I mean, I wanted my family back really bad, and all I could do was watch. Don't touch. Never touch. I had to protect my family by staying away.

Cassandra: It had to be really hard for you.

Jesse: Yeah, it was rough. But my point is, you are standing on the other side of the window that I'm looking through. You know parts of this family better than I do. I mean, what was Frankie like as a big brother?

Cassandra: We were really close.

Jesse: Yeah?

Cassandra: I guess I was always looking up to him, trying to prove myself to him.

Jesse: See, this helps me already. I mean, he was so young when I was taken away. Was he always accident-prone?

Cassandra: Oh, yeah.

Jesse: He is just so clumsy.

Cassandra: Ok, this one time, he got his first pair of rollerblades. He insisted on taking on this hill. He couldn't even stand on them, but he had to be big brother show off.

Jesse: I'm almost afraid to ask. What happened?

Cassandra: Well, let's just say it was a good thing he had dental insurance.

Jesse: That's our boy Frankie.

Cassandra: Mom was always like setting a bone or stitching that boy up.

Jesse: Probably why he went into medicine, right?

Cassandra: Luckily, he was just more embarrassed than hurt.

Jesse: It's a guy thing.

Cassandra: Yeah. You're cool, you know?

Jesse: I know.

Cassandra: Thank you for the summit.

Jesse: Anytime. Did you ever find what you were looking for earlier? You know, I got an extra set of eyes here. And I am a highly trained professional.

Kendall: Don't beat yourself up. I mean, everyone has Mommy doubts. I do every now and then.

Greenlee: Yeah, well, it's different for me. I see my future with Aidan traveling the world, making Fusion queen of the world, partying with you, even being the perfect Aunt Greenlee to your kids.

Kendall: Ok, well, that sounds wonderful. So, what's the glitch?

Greenlee: I don't see that future with my own children in it. And no one could be more surprised than I am. I mean, this feeling's been building for a while, but it doesn't scare me or make me feel guilty. It just finally feels right.

Kendall: Ok, well, maybe it's just a phase. Maybe it will pass.

Greenlee: Doubtful. Let's be honest, I mean, I'm not like you. You manage to juggle your kids, manage a business, make it hot with your husband, all the while looking fabulous, and you do it all with a smile on your face.

Kendall: Ok, first of all, I'm not always smiling. You know that. And second, Greenlee, we all know that you're very into you. Now, I'm not saying that this is it, but maybe you're feeling this way, because you don't want to share Aidan.

Aidan: Just a thought, mate, but have you contacted the newspaper where these articles came from? Because maybe there's some information there that they never published.

Tad: I always knew you were more than a pretty face. It's a brilliant idea, and I'm already following up on it.

Aidan: What about the reporter?

Tad: Her name's Madeline Wilson. Haven't got word on her yet, but I'm doing a search now.

Aidan: She might be the only one that knows where your little girl is.

Adam: Why can't you people see I'm right?

Dixie: Oh, you people. Nice. That's the way to win them over.

Adam: Isn't it enough that that bitch is haunting me?

J.R.: I told you not to talk about my mother like that.

Dixie: You think J.R. would ever defend you like that, Adam?

Adam: Why don't you go back to purgatory where you came from? I want that witch out of my house. I want her out of my house. Get out! Leave!

Colby: What's going on, J.R.? What are you doing?

Dixie: Ah, alone at last.

Cassandra: I really wasn't looking for anything important. I just felt like my stuff has been kind of messed up lately.

Jesse: Messed up?

Cassandra: More like, messed with. Like my things have been rummaged through.

Jesse: Anything of value missing?

Cassandra: Nothing critical. In fact, for about a minute I thought it might have been you going through my things. I mean, it made sense. You were a cop. I'm a teenager who's lived abroad.

Jesse: And you thought that I was making sure you hadn't packed illegal substances with your what? Your souvenirs?

Cassandra: Something like that.

Jesse: Oh, my God. Yeah, not my style. Prefer the direct approach.

Cassandra: I'll keep that in mind.

Jesse: You do that. So, you're sure there was nothing missing at all. Nothing suspicious left around?

Cassandra: You know, it's probably just me getting used to the new time zone. And I do have a habit of losing things. I mean, just ask Frankie. You'll see once you get to know me better.

Jesse: That's what I'm talking about. Getting to know each other.

Cassandra: Right. Yeah, you're right. You know, just for the record, I know my mom pretty well, but when I hear her humming to herself, and I see a smile that I've never seen before, I know it's because of you, Jesse. I can't thank you enough.

Amanda: Come on, you can't hide from Dr. Dillon forever.

Babe: Ok, Amanda, you know me too well. What can I say?

Amanda: Well, it can't be helped. It's a gift.

Babe: You're right. There is another reason why I want to prove that Richie set up J.R. I'm terrified that J.R. is going to go after Richie himself.

Amanda: And it'll backfire in J.R.'s face.

Babe: Yes, J.R. definitely does have a track record for, you know, making things worse.

Amanda: So, what are you going to do?

Babe: Stay put. Sometimes when you want to find a rat, you got to use a little cheese.

Greenlee: You may have a point. I've waited so long for a man like Aidan to come in my life, I want him all to myself. Maybe I don't want to share. Is that so wrong?

Kendall: No. Of course not, as long as you're honest with him.

Greenlee: Exactly. I love Aidan so much. I love the way I feel when I'm with him. I don't want to do anything that might jeopardize that.

Kendall: I don't blame you. But I don't think children are going to jeopardize anything.

Greenlee: You know, I'm not perfect. I've got flaws. Not many, but some. And Aidan loves me despite them. I mean, in fact, he loves me because of some of my adorable imperfections.

Kendall: That's one way of looking at it, yes. That's -- it's Greenlee logic, but it makes sense. I mean, you make a strong case.

Greenlee: Then you agree? You think Aidan'll understand if I don't want to have children? I mean, he already knows that I can't carry a baby to term, but he'll understand if I don't want to adopt or choose another method. Being with me's enough, isn't it?

Kendall: Of course, Greenlee, listen. Of course it is, yes. You know what? You don't even have to make any decisions right now. You guys have your whole lives ahead of you. I mean, who knows how you'll feel in a few years?

Greenlee: But I do know now, Kendall. The more we talk about it, the more I know there's no wiggle room on this one. I'll never change my mind.

Kendall: Ok, well, if that's how you really feel, then there's only one thing to do. You have to tell Aidan.

Tad: Oh, my God. This can't be a coincidence.

Aidan: What'd you find?

Tad: It's about Madeline Wilson. Listen to this. "The New Mexico State Police have completed a cursory investigation of the accident site. It appears Miss Wilson's car was forced off the road as it approached the shoulder. The other vehicle fled the scene. There are no further leads on the mystery vehicle involved in this tragic hit-and-run. Witnesses are encouraged to step forward."

Aidan: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Tad: Yeah. Miss Wilson was onto something that someone didn't want her to follow up on.

Adam: Come back in here, you ingrates.

Colby: J.R., it's only gotten worse.

J.R.: Look, this is probably a reaction to the medication for the panic attacks.

Colby: You don't believe that.

J.R.: Did you call the people that I told you to get in touch with?

[Doorbell chiming]

Man: We received a call.

J.R.: Yeah, I'm J.R. Chandler. We spoke on the phone. Um, yeah, it's getting worse.

Colby: What's going on, J.R.?

Adam: I would kill you, Dixie, if you weren't already dead.

Dixie: If you'd just agree to give Tad the adoption paper, you could have saved yourself all this trouble.

Adam: Never.

Dixie: Some people never learn.

J.R.: My father is alone in there.

Colby: J.R., you can't do this.

Adam: Yes, I'm well aware of what's at stake. No, no, fat chance. You can't keep it up forever. Who are you?

J.R.: This is Dr. Sinclair.

Dixie: He's from Oak Haven.

Adam: Oak Haven? The nuthouse?

Babe: Yoo-hoo.

Amanda: Babe?

Babe: What do you think? These trashy clothes came in handy, right?

Amanda: Well, you look cheap, all right. What are you doing with that outfit? It's too early to trick-or-treat, honey.

Babe: Not necessarily. At least, not the trick part.

Amanda: Don't tell me, you're not --

Babe: With a little bit of help and a lot more lip-liner, even you're not going to be able to recognize me. And if you can't, Richie's hooker friend, Treena, she's definitely not.

Amanda: What are you going to do?

Babe: Well, I'm going to wait for the exact right time, and then I'm going to become that bitch's very best friend.

Kendall: If there's one thing I've learned about relationships, it's not to keep a huge secret from your lover.

Greenlee: What, you and Zach? What secret are you talking about?

Kendall: Everybody has secrets. Ok, that's -- stay on point here. We're talking about you and Aidan. Now, if you really feel this way, if you really feel like you don't want kids, you have to tell him how you feel.

Greenlee: I've tried, but I don't think he's listening to me.

Kendall: Well, then make it very clear how you feel. Aidan loves you, Greenlee. He'll understand.

Tad: This woman, Madeline Wilson, was -- she died on the very day that the last article on illegal adoptions was published, right? Well, it's perfectly obvious from this article that she was trying to follow up another lead.

Aidan: Greg Madden killed her to stop her.

Tad: Yeah. There goes my best trail to Kate.

Adam: I swear I will kill you. Kill you! Don't -- let go. Unhand me. Let -- let go. You don't know who you're handling here. I'm -- this is my house! I'm Adam Chandler! Don't --

Jesse: You know, that was really nice what you just said about me and your mom.

Cassandra: I meant it.

Jesse: And I meant what I said. And do me a favor and just keep me posted if you sense anything unusual, all right?

Cassandra: Ok.

Jesse: This was good. I'm glad we did this.

Jesse: I'm out.

[Door closing]

[Knocking at the door]

Cassandra: Yeah, Jesse, I'm not the only one in the family who's forgetful. Oh. Mr. Gardner.

Robert: Hi, did I come at a bad time?

Cassandra: Actually, yeah. My mom and Jesse aren't home right now, and --

Robert: Well, that's all right. Because I came to see you.

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

Cassandra (to Robert): Ow!

Adam (to Dixie): I swear, I could kill you for this.

Ryan (to Greenlee): I remembered something about Annie.

Jack (to Erica): What went on between Kendall and Aidan?

Aidan: What are you saying?

Greenlee: That I don't want to have children.
