Kendall: Hi, oh, my goodness.
Josh: You're welcome. One multi-colored cake for you.
Kendall: Thank you.
Josh: Cutting is your department.
Kendall: Oh, yeah. I will do my best. This is -- wow. Thank you for bringing the cake. This is amazing.
Josh: No problem. It was on the way home from the hospital.
Zach: How's Tad?
Josh: Tad is, uh, he's stable.
Zach: Let's get a beer. Come on.
Kendall: Come in.
Ryan: Where's my little birthday boy?
Kendall: Well, he will be here soon. Rachael took Spike and Ian out, so we could make the place festive. We know that balloons and streamers won't make us forget, but we're celebrating life.
Ryan: For Tad and for Julia?
Kendall: Exactly. So where's Emma?
Annie: Oh, she's at home with Corinna. Ahem, she actually wasn't feeling very well.
Kendall: Oh, I'm sorry. Well, thank you for coming for Spike. I -- I know it can't be easy for you. Kathy and Emma are -- like sisters.
Annie: I just -- I can't believe that, you know, one day Julia's planning her new life in Australia, and the next day she's gone. I'm sorry.
Kendall: No, don't -- don't be. It's ok. We're -- we're all here to -- to help each other get through this, right, Ryan?
Ryan: Right. I'm going to get a beer.
Kendall: Ok, uh, yeah, you can put the gifts over there with the rest of them.
Annie: Is everything ok with you and Ryan?
Kendall: Yeah, of course.
Kendall: Excuse me.
Erica: Jack? What is it? Is it Tad? Opal said that he was stable. He is, isn't he? It -- it didn't get worse?
Jackson: Tad's still with us. The next few hours are going to be incredibly critical for him, but he's still here, yeah.
Erica: Well, he has to be all right. I mean, he simply has to be.
Jackson: Yeah. Erica, there is something else. Um, Greenlee found out that Aidan and Kendall slept together.
Erica: What? How?
Jackson: I told her.
Babe: What are you doing?
J.R.: Oh, I'm working my contact list to keep people updated with Tad. Jamie, Jeff, Brooke, Hayley.
Babe: Save it. That'll be the guest list for when we throw Tad his welcome-home party.
J.R.: That's a good idea. How are you holding up?
Babe: God, I almost blew it. Kathy caught me having a cry, and I told her that I stubbed my toe.
J.R.: You know, I get why Krystal, you know, doesn't want to tell Kathy about Julia just yet. You know, there's never a right time to tell somebody this kind of news.
Babe: Yeah. Hey, I thought Adam was here.
J.R.: Oh, he was. He was talking about Tad. Then he blew on out of here. Man on a mission.
Adam: Would you get out of my way? I have to speak to Tad.
Jake: No, not a chance, Adam. No, not a chance in hell.
Aidan: Hi. Is there -- is there a problem?
Adam: Damn it, Martin. I need to speak to Tad Martin.
Jake: Please, please, just help me get him out of here.
Jake: Please, please, please.
Adam: Just I -- I -- you don't understand. I can help.
Krystal: What kind of dream are you having that you don't want to wake up?
Tad: Dixie. Honey, this is it. "Together Forever" aren't just words anymore. I'm ready. Let's go.
Dixie: We can't.
Tad: Of course, we can. Why shouldn't we? This is the way it was always meant to be. You and me forever.
Dixie: I'm sorry, Tad. I can't.
Tad: You don't want to be with me?
Dixie: Oh, sweet -- I do want to be with you, honey. I do so much. And I promise you that I will be, but not now. Now, you have to go back.
Tad: No. No, I don't. I can't. I can't lose you all over again. Don't ask me to.
Dixie: I promise you I will always be in your heart.
Tad: It's not enough. It's not enough. Why should it be? You've shown me our life together, the life we deserve to have, with Kate, doing all the things we wanted to do but never got the chance. Why should I have to go back to wishing on a star and hoping and praying that someday, some way, I'll be able to see you again? It's not fair. Dixie, please, this is my choice. It's my choice. This is what I want. I want to stay here with you now. I want to live the life that we were meant to live.
Dixie: This isn't living.
Tad: It's close enough for me. Don't you tell me this is some kind of dream, because that's just not possible.
[Tad and Dixie kiss]
Tad: That felt pretty damn real to me. You want this as badly as I do, and we can have it. All we have to do is hold hands and walk into that light.
Dixie: Oh, Tad, but you have a life.
Tad: Dixie. You are my life. You always have been.
Colby: Marching, marching. Wiggle your ears.
Kathy: We can't wiggle our ears!
Colby: No? Then maybe we'll have to tickle you!
Babe: How about some kisses? I'm going to give away some of those kisses.
Kathy: No, no!
Colby: Ready troops? Let's hit the big screen. Let's march, let's march.
J.R.: March, one, two, three --
Colby: Ready? One, two, three, four.
J.R.: Hup, two, three, four.
Babe: I -- I can't imagine what it'll be like for her, you know? I mean, I -- I get that she knows her Aunt Maria and all of her cousins, but still, Kathy will have to do this all over again, except for this time in another state. It's just -- it's just not fair.
J.R.: No. No, it isn't.
Babe: I mean, we're really, really lucky, J.R., except for the fact that we -- that we suck at marriage. Little A has all of that. He has family and friends and two parents that love him very, very much, no matter where he lives.
Erica: This is it. This is really just the last I can take.
Jackson: I'm so, so sorry.
Erica: I should -- I should be there with my family. I should be there right now. I -- I should be holding Opal's hand. I should be telling Tad that I love him, that I'm pulling for him. I should be singing "Happy Birthday" to Spike. I should be helping Lily get ready for M.I.T. and God knows what Greenlee and Kendall are going to do to each other without me there to stop them.
Jackson: Greenlee and Kendall have managed to get past a lot of things through the years.
Erica: Yeah, I know, which is exactly why we should be so worried right now, don't you think? I mean, this time might just be the fight to the death.
Greenlee: For Spike. That's why I came. I'll just -- hi -- add this to the pile and help myself. To the beer, not your husband.
Greenlee: Hey, boys.
Josh: Greenlee, what's up?
Josh: You look great.
Greenlee: Thanks. Just lost 185 pounds. Never felt better.
Zach: Can -- can I get you something?
Greenlee: I already asked. You refused. I'll help myself. Worked for Kendall, didn't it?
Josh: What was that all about?
Zach: You don't want to know.
Annie: Ok, what is going on? You look like you're waiting for somebody's head to explode, so spill.
Ryan: The birthday boy! Hey.
Kendall: Who is here? Who's here, who's here? Is it the birthday boy?
Annie: You and Kendall. Could've sworn I saw the death stare.
Greenlee: Must be the lighting. I told her to go halogen.
Annie: So is Aidan coming?
Greenlee: Ryan didn't tell you?
Annie: Tell me what?
Greenlee: Aidan and I are over.
Annie: What? What happened?
Annie: What does Kendall have to do with this?
Greenlee: What do you think?
Krystal: You're going to drag this out? You know, here and there and everywhere, people are just beaming prayers and love. I would do anything to bring you back.
Krystal: Wrestle with the devil, sweeten a deal with God, but what deal should I make? To love you to the bone like you deserve? Or let you go?
Adam: Ok, it'll take a minute.
Jake: Adam, what do you want? You want to pull the plug, huh? You want to curse him out one last time?
Adam: No, no.
Aidan: I don't see any other reason why you're here.
Adam: If you nitwits would just shut up and listen.
Krystal: Hey, hey, hey, hey! What -- what is going on here?
Adam: Krystal, I want to see Tad.
Jake: I'm sorry is we're making too much noise. We were asking him to leave. We were trying to get him --
Aidan: I was just about to get rid of him. Come, let's go.
Adam: No, no, no. Krystal, please. This is important.
Krystal: Why don't you two get yourselves some caffeine?
Aidan: Are you sure?
Krystal: It's ok. I'll -- I'll take care of it.
Aidan: All right.
Jake: Come on, I'll buy.
Aidan: Let me know if he's any trouble.
Krystal: He won't. Why are you here, Adam? Huh? Why won't you just leave us alone? Huh? Leave us in peace?
Adam: Blast it, woman. I'm trying to save his life.
Ruth: Chocolate-covered peanuts? Tad's favorite.
Opal: First thing he ever put on his cereal.
Ruth: Until he graduated to candy bars.
Opal: When Tad wakes up, I am going to buy me a truckload of cereal and chocolates, and I'm going to mix them up myself.
Ruth: We are not going to lose him.
Opal: No, not a chance. You know, a mother's love is a powerful, powerful thing, and he's got a double-dipper dose of it.
Krystal: Where is this coming from, Adam? You hate Tad, so why the concern and -- and the urgency? Did they let you out of Oak Haven too soon? Because your brain is addled.
Adam: I've never been more sane.
Krystal: Well, then, why don't you try making some sense?
Adam: This is bigger than Tad and me. This is -- it's family. It's the future. It's Colby's, J.R.'s, and your future. Believe me, especially yours. That's why I'm doing this.
Krystal: Everybody's future is going to be just fine without you upsetting Tad.
Adam: He's unconscious. Well, I just want to say a few words to him. Maybe he will understand those words. Maybe he will remember them, regardless of who said them.
Krystal: You are making about as much sense as you were when you were eating paper and -- and seeing things.
Adam: I'm going in, Krystal, and you can't stop me.
Krystal: If you go in there, Adam, I will never forgive you.
Adam: Ah. Yes, I know.
Dixie: You have a life without me, and it's a wonderful life full of people that you love, that love you. Family and friends and children --
Tad: And I'll always love them and watch over them and protect them, the way you always watched out over me.
Dixie: But the children need you, Tad. They need their father.
Tad: Dixie, J.R. and Jamie are grown men. They're doing just fine by themselves.
Dixie: Think of your daughters, Tad.
Tad: My daughters?
Tad: Jenny. [Whispering] Jenny. She just turned a year old.
Dixie: And Kate? Your daughters need their father.
Kendall: So you finally saw Greenlee after all?
Ryan: I fixed her flat tire, yeah.
Kendall: Well, thank you for talking to her.
Ryan: I didn't do it for you.
Kendall: Ok, you're angry.
Ryan: I just think it's time that Greenlee got a break. That's all.
Kendall: So what did you talk to her about exactly?
Ryan: She knows she's got a friend.
Kendall: So you're -- you're friends. And?
Ryan: And I see a cookie with my name on it.
Josh: You want go to see Mommy? You want to see Mommy?
Kendall: Who's that?
Kendall: Come here.
Josh: Ok, there you go.
Kendall: Hi, my baby.
Josh: I love him, but I think he might have peed on me, so --
Kendall: Oh, yes. Did you pee on him? Oh, it's allowed.
Josh: Here you go.
Kendall: My sweet little pickle. Oh!
Annie: No, thanks.
Zach: How's Emma?
Annie: She's good. She's napping. But she gave me special instructions to bring her home lots of cake.
Zach: Ok. Do you want a -- a juice cup or another beer or celery sticks or carrot sticks, something like that?
Annie: No, I'm ok, thank you.
Zach: Good, because all we have is sugar. You want sugar?
Annie: I'm good.
Zach: Hey. Sit down.
Annie: Cute chairs.
Zach: You ok?
Annie: I'm just thinking about this time last year. All the same people, but everything is different. Last year, Greenlee crashed the party, and she was the one on the outside. Everything's changed.
Opal: They let anybody in this place.
Palmer: Ahem. Windbag.
Opal: Old coot.
[Palmer takes Opal's hand while they sit next to each other]
Tad: My daughters. My daughters. But -- but Kate --
Dixie: Kate -- Kate is waiting for you. So is Jenny. They need you.
Tad: Well, I need you. I need you more than anything. I'm sorry. I can't. I can't do it without you anymore. I don't want to. I can't go back and not be with you. And not be able to -- to touch you, to hold you.
Dixie: You can't, you can't. You have to think of all the people who love you, that you made promises to. Your parents, your brother, your children.
Tad: Dixie, of all the promises I ever broke, of all the mistakes I ever made, the worst ones I made with you. Because of me, we lost Kate. We lost so much time together, because I failed you. I can't fail you again.
Krystal: I am sure you have all kinds of reasons to see Tad, and they all seem really good to you. But you need to do this, Adam. Please. For me. And I will never ask anything of you again, but, please. Leave Tad in peace.
Adam: Ok. Ok, I'll, uh, Tad'll be fine. He'll be ok.
Adam: Dixie, I need you. Where the hell are you? Burning down somebody else's closet? Dixie! Blast.
[Adam dials his phone]
Adam: Yeah, J.R.
J.R.: Hey, Dad, where did you run off to?
Adam: I need you to bring Kathy over to the hospital right away.
J.R.: At the hospital?
Adam: Yes, we're here. Bring her over.
J.R.: Why? Does Krystal want her there now?
Adam: Yes, yes, Krystal wants Kathy here right now. Just -- just do it. Well, Krystal does want Kathy here right now. She just doesn't know it yet.
Krystal: And that's from our sweet Jenny.
Krystal: She loves you so much, so you have to stick around for a long, long time. You hear me? Because Jenny needs you.
Aidan: We all do. You're the only brother I've ever had, Tad. I'm not about to lose you now.
Dixie: You never failed me, Tad. Your strength, your love, for me, for so many people in your life --
Tad: But Kate, if I had just believed --
Dixie: No, no, what happened wasn't your fault. Sometimes things just happen for a reason. And Kate, she's ok. She's been taken care of and loved.
Tad: Where is she?
Dixie: I -- I can't, I can't --
Tad: Dixie, tell me. Where is she?
Dixie: I'm sorry, Tad. There are rules.
Tad: I don't care. I don't give a damn about the rules.
Jake: Am I crashing the party?
Aidan: No, no, no. I was just about to go to the cafeteria. You want anything?
Krystal: You know, um, I really think that you being here gives Tad another reason to hurry up and open up his eyes.
Jake: Well, if he wanted me here this badly, all he had to do was ask.
Krystal: I, uh, I think he did.
Krystal: Any, uh, any changes at all?
Jake: No, not yet. You know, you gave my brother a child, a real home, a family, and with a love like that, he's going to come back.
Adam: Ok, Dixie. Here's the deal. I take Kathy -- Kate over to Tad's bedside, but that's it. No explanations, no apologies, no, just the child. That way, he gets the final piece of his family, and I get to keep what's mine. That's fair. That's fair, isn't it? Well, I don't -- I don't care if you don't like the terms. I can't tell the truth if -- if they know how long I've known about Kate. I'd -- I'd lose everything. Everything. I don't care about saving my soul, but if you think I'm going to lose everyone I love for Tad Martin?
Erica: I'm sorry. I'm really sorry, Jack. Of course, I don't blame you for everything, of course not. I'm just so frustrated.
Jackson: You think I don't know what it's like? To watch your friends, your family, the people you love in pain and not be able to do anything about it?
Erica: Look, the, um, the plea bargain. They're insisting on -- on serving my time immediately. That was -- that was a grandstand play on my part, so I could show Samuel Woods that I could go him one better and to try to get him to stop using me for publicity. I had no idea that I would be needed by my family so much.
Jackson: It might be small comfort to you, Erica, but you are very much needed here. Do you realize what you've done for some of these women? For Carmen? You have changed lives in here. You have.
Erica: And I'm glad I can do that. I really am. But it's not the same thing as taking care of my family.
Jackson: No, and God knows our family needs taking care of.
Erica: I thought I could do this six months. There would be visits and mail, phone calls, tennis. Not easy, but possible. I just want this over, Jack. Life in here without my family, without you, it's no life at all.
Greenlee: Do you think Kendall and Zach will mind that I let him open his present?
Ryan: I don't think you care what they think.
Greenlee: Your daddy is a very smart man.
Ryan: And you're acting like you're going to start the conga line here at the party, Greenlee. It's ok, you know, to feel bad.
Greenlee: Men have died on me --
Greenlee: Pretended to die on me, and dumped me. This is the first time in a long time that I got to do the dumping.
Greenlee: It feels good, empowering.
Spike: Mama, Mama.
Greenlee: Ha, ha, Mama. Liberating. Who knows? Maybe I'll buy another motorcycle. Can you say motorcycle?
Ryan: Well, you need someone to ride with, and you got my number.
Greenlee: Thanks. Car.
Kendall: Greenlee is doing her perky party routine. Don't get too close. That smile of hers is sharp enough to draw blood.
Zach: We drew first.
Zach: What's going on with Annie? Is she all right?
Kendall: Well, I think Julia's death hit her hard. It can't be easy. I mean, Kathy and Emma are like sisters.
Zach: I think it's something more than that.
Kendall: No. No, whatever it is, Annie will be fine. She's -- she's always perfect. That's her thing.
Annie: Ahem. Hey, I, um, I really am sorry about Aidan.
Greenlee: Yeah, you said that.
Annie: It's just you guys are so in love.
Greenlee: Yeah, were.
Annie: Ok, you're angry, and -- and you're hurt. I totally get that, but people make mistakes, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Spewing clichés about something you know nothing about is a mistake. Aidan sleeping with my best friend and lying about it, deal breaker.
Annie: I understand you feel that way now, but you can get past this. I mean, you've already started to. You're here, right? You've obviously forgiven Kendall.
Greenlee: I'm here for the food. Kendall always has the best spread in town. Ask Aidan.
Annie: He made a mistake, Greenlee, but he loves you.
Greenlee: How would you feel if Ryan slept with someone else?
Annie: I sure as hell wouldn't walk away. I would fight. I would do whatever it takes to keep him.
Dixie: We had our time, Tad.
Tad: No. Not enough. Dixie, "Together Forever" was a promise we made to each other before we even knew what it was, but it was a promise. Because at our best, we lived every day like it was our last, and one day, we were right. Because I turned around, and you were gone, and I was left alone, staring into the night sky, wishing, praying, somehow, some way, I would get the chance to see you one more time. That moment is now. This is the answer to that prayer. Please, say you want this. Say we can be together forever.
Dixie: I don't want to lose you, Tad. I don't want this to end. But we can't. There are rules.
Tad: Dixie, our life together never followed any rules. Maybe this is what's meant to be.
J.R.: Hey. We got here as soon as we could.
Krystal: Why are you here?
J.R.: What? Dad said you wanted to see Kathy.
Krystal: I most certainly did not. What -- what are you up to? Wh -- why did you tell him to bring this child here? Take her home. Th -- this is no place for her here.
J.R.: All right.
Adam: Look, J.R., J.R., wait, wait.
Krystal: Ok, what is going on here?
Adam: If you -- you and J.R. would just wait --
Krystal: Take her home.
Adam: Give her a snack. Go ahead, but just don't leave the hospital.
Kathy: Is Aunt Julia here?
Krystal: Kathy, honey, um, why don't you let J.R. and Babe take you to the machine for a snack, ok? And I'll be right in there to talk to you.
J.R.: Want to go get some sugar, huh? Ok, let's go.
Krystal: Well, that proves it. You really are certifiable, Adam, or else you're just heartless. That child has no idea that Julia is dead, and you have her brought here? Why would you do that?
Adam: Listen to me. Listen to me. If I were lying in there, a hair-breadth away from dying, and I -- I had a child, one of the childs that I thought was lost -- children, maybe Colby, and she walked in the room or any of my other children, it would save my life.
Krystal: What is your point, Adam?
Adam: Your own child can work miracles.
Krystal: Uh, ok, so that's your bright idea? You want us to march Kathy in there and pretend that she's Kate, huh?
Guard: Kane? Let's go.
Jackson: I'll be back very soon. Bye.
Kendall: Oh, Kate, Spiky, are you ready to blow out some birthday candles?
Kendall: Yeah, all right! Yeah.
Zach: Dada --
Kendall: You too, huh?
Zach: I checked it. It's fine
Ryan: Yeah, so -- so did I. I wanted to make sure he was going to hear every butchered note.
Kendall: You too?
Annie: Here we go.
Group: Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear Spike. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear Spike. Happy birthday to you ♪
Dixie: I love you.
Tad: That never has to end.
Krystal: Adam? What are you saying about Kathy?
[Tad and Dixie hug and kiss but then separate as they hear Adam's words]
Adam: Tad. Come back. Kate's here. I have your daughter. I have Kate. Come on, Martin. Wake up. Do you hear me, Martin? Kathy is your Kate. Kathy is your Kate.
[As Dixie gradually disappears, Tad's eyes open]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Aidan (to Greenlee): Listen to me. I love you. And I'm not giving up on us.
Tad: Is it true?
Krystal: Come quick! Tad's awake!
Tad (to Adam): Tell them what you told me.
J.R.: What are you talking about?
Adam: I found Kate.
