Adam: What the hell is this?

J.R.: The end of Chandler Enterprises.

Adam: Well, I am not, nor have I ever been, insane. This -- this is libel. I won't stand for it.

J.R.: It's a little late for that. Don't you think?

Adam: It's not too late for revenge. Whoever is responsible, that's what they're going to get.

Treena: This is my corner, skank. Step the hell off.

Babe: Well, I'm sorry. I didn't know, ok? I -- I just -- I'm new to the area. I -- I didn't know.

Treena: I was going to say because I know all the girls here. I've never seen you before.

Babe: I just -- I just moved here from New York, you know? The name's Candi. I'm sorry, again. I -- I didn't know.

Treena: I suppose you wouldn't. My name's Treena. Welcome to Paradise.

Amanda: That's what I'm talking about. Work it, girl.

Treena: So what's your deal? You looking for work? Have you done this before?

Babe: Uh, you know, here and there.

Treena: Meaning never, right?

Babe: I'm a quick learner, and, you know, with somebody like you showing me the ropes --

Treena: Well, you better be, if you want to survive. I suppose I could talk to Tony.

Babe: Who's Tony?

Treena: My manager. See if he's looking for any new blood. You better be all that.

Babe: Oh, oh. I -- I -- I am all of that and -- and a bag of chips.

[Music plays at ConFusion]

Jake: So you don't want a drink? That doesn't cut it, huh? Funny, because we're in a bar. What else do you have in mind? Goldfish, how about a goldfish?

Greenlee: Sex.

Jake: I was going to say that next, sex.

[Jake chuckles]

Jake: And I spoke to Aidan. I'm sorry about you guys.

Greenlee: I'm not. So how about that sex? Come on, Jake. It's not like we've never been there before. I'm not asking to be courted, just --

Jake: Sex?

Greenlee: Sex.

Jake: Got it?

Greenlee: So what do you say?

Jake: Sit. I say sit. You and me, uh, friends. Remember, friends?

Greenlee: Like anyone will ever let me forget. It's all I want, you know, just to forget.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: Have you ever felt that way before?

Jake: Sure, sure. I know the perfect drink.

Greenlee: Bartender!

Kendall: Fixing you a drink and, uh, picking up dinner for you. How is that playing you?

Zach: You got to give me some credit. I know you really well. Just seems a little forced.

Kendall: I was trying to be nice. Jeez. Next time I come home, I'll make sure to be a real bitch.

Zach: Kendall?

Kendall: Yes?

Zach: What happened?

Kendall: Nothing. What, Zach? What rules did I break now? You don't want me to dote on you?

Zach: No, no, I want that. What I don't want is you lying to me again. No, no, no, no, no. What's got you all worked up?

Kendall: Greenlee promised that she wouldn't let what happened with me and Aidan get in the way of work.

Zach: But?

Kendall: But it did. For the interview tonight, we were supposed to show the world the cohesive, united force behind Fusion, and Greenlee almost screwed it up.

Zach: Almost?

Kendall: Yeah. She went on and on about how great it is working so closely with a friend.

Zach: That doesn't sound so bad.

Kendall: Zach, the goal was to highlight how well we worked together at Fusion. Not -- not to remind me how amazing it used to be before I screwed it up.

Zach: But in the end, everything was ok.

Kendall: Yeah, after some major back-pedaling. Why do you do that?

Zach: Why do I do what?

Kendall: You defend Greenlee all the time.

Zach: Not defending anybody. I'm just saying, in the end, everything was all good --

Kendall: No, no, but it's not all good, Zach. It's not even close. Greenlee took the mistake that I made, which I have profusely apologized for, and she used it to sabotage Fusion.

Zach: Ok, a couple of things. Number one, I don't think she sabotaged Fusion just from the sound of it. Number two, she's got a right to feel the way she feels right now.

Kendall: Right. Well, you know, Saint Greenlee can do no wrong.

Zach: Huh.

Kendall: Well, she feels the same way about you. Don't worry.

Zach: I'm not worried.

[Kendall sighs]

Kendall: I made a mistake, ok? I'm the first to admit that. I messed up. But you know what? I wasn't the only one who lied to her and kept her in the dark about what happened. You were right there with me.

Zach: I was.

Kendall: Ok, so why am I the only one getting dumped on? Why do you get a free pass, and I don't?

Zach: Because you slept with her fiancé.

Greenlee: What is this?

Jake: The classic. Long Island iced tea. Every conceivable type of booze in there, and let's not forget the caffeine.

Greenlee: Hmm. Giddy-up. Ooh. Whoa. That'll put some hair on your chest.

Jake: Nice, nice visual.

Greenlee: Not helping to get you in bed, is it?

Jake: Hmm. As I recall, our relationship wasn't just really about sex, although it was good. It was great, great.

Greenlee: Obviously.

Jake: Although we had some unresolved issues. Maybe we were always meant to be friends. Because you got me, Ms. Smythe. You always did.

Greenlee: Remember that time --

Jake: No, wait, wait, hold it. We were going to forget, remember? That was the thing.

Greenlee: About the ex-fiancé who shall remain nameless. Everything else, fair game.

Jake: Ok.

Greenlee: I was kidding about the whole sex thing.

Jake: Oh, I know, I know.

Greenlee: I mean, you just ended things with your wife --

Jake: No, I know. Trust me, I know, Greenlee, I know.

Greenlee: Good. God, life sucks.

Jake: I know that, too.

Greenlee: No, no. Don't even go there.

Jake: Oh, what? You're the only one who's allowed to have troubles and problems? Oh, woe is Greenlee.

Greenlee: Trust me. If this was a woe competition, you wouldn't even --

[Greenlee laughs]

Jake: What? What? Aw, no.

Greenlee: Jake Martin?

Jake: God, yeah?

Greenlee: I challenge you to a battle of the woes.

Krystal: So you are telling me that after everything that Adam has done to you, after all the hell that he has put you through, you shook his hand, and you thanked him?

Tad: Yeah.

Krystal: Why?

Tad: Because, honey. Without him I never would've gotten Kate back -- Kathy.

Krystal: I know, I know. But he kept her from you for -- for months.

Tad: Yeah, he did. So can you imagine what it took for him in front of a room full of people to get the words out?

Krystal: Words that he should've said ages ago, Tad. Come on, he lied to you. He lied to me. He lied to everybody. I mean, for -- for crying out loud. I mean, J. R. was walking around. His sister was right there in front of him, and Adam didn't even say boo.

Tad: His sister is home, so it's over.

Krystal: Just like that?

Tad: I -- I guess so.

Krystal: Oh, wow. So you can just shake his hand and, um, everything's fine? Everything's forgiven. You can do that?

Tad: I can try. But I'm starting to get the feeling that you can't.

J.R.: We're in this mess because of you.

Adam: Nonsense.

J.R.: What? I saw you talking to my dead mother. You were putting paper in your mouth. You were losing buttons, being slapped in the face.

Adam: I don't need a play-by-play summary.

J.R.: Actually, I think you do. I don't know who leaked this story, but if you weren't arguing with ghosts, there would be nothing to leak.

Adam: Who are you calling?

J.R.: Public Relations. I'm going to do some damage control. Our investors are going to be pulling out left and right.

Adam: Yeah, give me the phone. I'll make my own statement.

J.R.: After that brilliant review? Why do you think anyone would believe you now?

Babe: So, uh, what's it like? You know?

Treena: You don't mean --

Babe: Oh, oh, oh, God, no. Are you kidding me? No, I'm a -- I'm a pro at that.

Treena: Good, because Tony would be pissed.

Babe: No, well, yeah, what I meant was is, you know, what's it like working the streets?

Treena: Dream come true. What -- what do you want me to say? Pays the bills.

Babe: And, uh, I bet you -- you meet a lot of interesting people, right?

Treena: Huh, a lot, yeah. Interesting? That's pushing it.

Babe: But, you know, they're interested in -- in other things besides sex?

Treena: You think some guy's going to want to come and start a book club with you?

Babe: That's -- that's not what I -- I -- I just meant, you know, I bet guys approach you for -- for other kinds of services.

Treena: Oh, I'm not into the kinky stuff.

Babe: No, like they approach you for things other, you know, besides sex.

Treena: Oh, gee, look. I get that you're nervous, but just relax. There's only two things you got to remember. Who to protect, and who to pay. We're the first --

Man: And I'm the second.

Amanda: Ew. What is that?

Treena: Candi, meet Tony. This is the girl I called you about.

Tony: Nice. You ready to rock and roll?

Treena: Oh, we're ready.

Tony: Motel on Belmont. Room 149. I got two guys meeting you there in a half hour. Have at it, girls.

Greenlee: I don't believe you. There's no way your life sucks more than mine.

Jake: Ok, whatever. You ready?

Greenlee: To relive my miserable existence? Can't wait.

Jake: May I?

Greenlee: Bring it, Martin. Wait, wait, wait. How far back are we going?

Jake: I just need the past year.

Greenlee: Ha! You are so going down.

Jake: Whatever, ok. Here we go. Taken hostage by rebel forces.

Greenlee: Ah. Smashed up a car with my best friend's baby in it. Cheers.

Jake: Wow, that's a story for another time.

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

[Greenlee laughs]

Jake: Beaten and tortured by my rebel captors.

Greenlee: Hmm. Aw.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: Set up for kidnapping and headed to jail.

Jake: Hmm.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Jake: Um, I was in an explosion.

Greenlee: Hmm. Trapped in a bomb shelter.

Jake: Now --

[Greenlee laughs]

Jake: This is a two-parter.

Greenlee: Oh.

Jake: Forced to come back to Pine Valley. Oh. And hospitalized against my will. Huh?

[Jake chuckles]

Greenlee: Bit by a poisonous snake.

Jake: Oh.

Greenlee: Beat that.

Jake: Hmm.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Jake: Ooh! Almost watched my brother die.

Greenlee: That does suck. But not as much as almost dying yourself, because you drank some weird root water to stay alive.

Jake: Really?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Jake: We do have to catch up.

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Jake: Hmm. I don't know -- ok.

Greenlee: You've heard it before, but it never gets old. My fiancé slept with my very best friend. So, Martin, add all mine together. What sucks more than that?

Jake: You're right. Your life does suck. You win.

Greenlee: Ha! Victory! Whoa. I'm wasted.

Zach: What do you want?

Kendall: Support, understanding. All of the things you so eagerly give to Greenlee.

Zach: All I've given you is support and understanding. Why do you care if I give the same to Greenlee? Why do you care?

Kendall: Because, Zach, I'm your wife.

Zach: I know you're my wife. I married you. I love you.

Kendall: But you defend her, and you -- you always defend her, and you treat her --

Zach: I treat her with respect? Is that -- is that ok? She's a very important woman in my life. What do you -- do you want me to apologize for that?

Kendall: No, no, I'm not asking you to apologize.

Zach: What are you asking me to do? Turn my back on her? Not talk to her? Is that it? It seems a little ironic considering

Kendall: Considering what?

Zach: You've been forcing her down my throat for years, and now, finally, things are ok, and --

Kendall: And I wreck it all?

Zach: Well, in a way, yeah. What do you want from me? Come on. I -- I love you, always. Only you. You got to remember that.

Kendall: Of course, I do, I do. But Greenlee said --

Zach: I don't care what Greenlee says. Listen to what I say. She's my friend, nothing more.

Kendall: I have a feeling that she sees things differently.

Zach: I don't care how she sees things. It doesn't matter.

Kendall: It does, Zach. It does matter.

Zach: No, it matters because you let it matter. Why does everybody get to dictate who we are? Everyone except us. It's enough.

Krystal: I have spent how long keeping you two from killing each other? So excuse me if it takes me a second to get used to this little, cozy arrangement you two have.

Tad: Honey, I'm not trying to throw you a curveball. I don't know what to say. It's just, you know, it's -- it's kind of hard to hate the guy so much when he does something that's so human.

Krystal: Name one thing human about keeping your daughter from you.

Tad: He gave her back.

Krystal: If you hadn't been at death's door, Lord knows how long it would've taken Adam to tell you, if he would have told you at all.

Tad: Honey, I'm not saying that you have to forgive him.

Krystal: Tad, this is not about me. This is about what Adam did to you.

Tad: Are you sure?

Krystal: And what's that supposed to mean?

Tad: Well, up to this point, I've sort of been the odds-on favorite, you know, kind of an easy choice. Adam, evil scum. Tad, sainted angel.

Krystal: Don't go overboard now.

Tad: No, my -- my point is it's -- it's -- it's been so much easier for you to keep him at arm's length, because of all this stupid crap he's pulled.

[Krystal scoffs]

Krystal: So?

Tad: So what happens now?

Krystal: With what?

Tad: Between you and the man formerly known as "Satan"? It's a miracle, but he finally did something very decent.

Krystal: Depends on your definition of the word "decent."

Tad: Honey, let's be honest with each other. Ok? If you can't hate Adam, that scares the hell out of you, doesn't it?

J.R.: Thanks. We'll be in touch.

Adam: What did they have to say?

J.R.: Well, what do you think, Dad? They're worried. They're sending you a media coach.

Adam: Oh, for God's sakes. I'm not a puppet. I don't need to be told what to say.

J.R.: The most important thing is for you to appear lucid.

Adam: I am lucid. May I remind you that I put this company together? I built it from scratch all by myself, and I don't need some coach to tell me about some minor troubleshooting.

J.R.: Oh, really? Is that what you're calling this?

Adam: You want -- you want to point the finger at somebody, point it at yourself. If you hadn't carted me off to an insane asylum, none of this would be happening right now.

[J.R. chuckles]

J.R.: You were talking to dead people!

Adam: Ah, I see. That's -- that's why you went and had me committed. You want to have Chandler Enterprises all to yourself. Is that it?

J.R.: That seals it. You are insane.

Adam: Admit it. You enjoyed taking the reigns while I was away, didn't you?

J.R.: I apologize for keeping Chandler out of the toilet. What was I thinking?

Adam: Ah, the view from up there is pretty good, isn't it, boy?

J.R.: Oh, and you are unbelievable. I'm not trying to poach your company.

Adam: Oh, oh, no?

J.R.: No. I just wanted to be a part of it. Isn't that why you built the damn thing to begin with? J.R. Chandler. No comment!

Man: Tony really hooked us up this time, huh? How you doing?

Treena: Better, now that you're here. We're going to have some fun, right, Candi?

Man: Yes. What's the problem?

Treena: You'll have to excuse her. She's a little new to this.

Man: Oh, wow. We got a virgin in our hands, huh?

Second Man: Ooh.

Man: Easy, Billy. I saw her first. Uh, so, are you ready to rock my world?

Babe: Uh, just give me one -- one second, ok? I'm going to go freshen up first, all right?

Man: All right. Well, just don't take too long, ok? Mm-hmm.

[Babe sighs]

Jake: Look at it this way. Things can only get better for you.

Greenlee: I don't see how.

Jake: Hmm. Because you see, you, what they call, have hit rock bottom.

Greenlee: Yeah.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: I'm the queen of rock bottom.

Jake: And when you're at, uh, the bottom, the only place that you can go is up.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Jake: Hands are funny, aren't they?

Greenlee: The only place I can go is up?

Jake: Hmm, yeah.

Greenlee: Can you put that in writing? Because I felt that way before, and then I fell into an abandoned bomb shelter.

Jake: That's terrible. For you, only good things from now on.

Greenlee: Promise?

Jake: I would, but I have to go to the toilet. Excuse me.

Greenlee: Coward. Coward! Josh! Hi, friend.

Josh: Greenlee.

Greenlee: Hi, pull up a chair. Wait. How much does your life suck?

Josh: Excuse me?

Greenlee: On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the suckiest of them all.

Josh: Oh, I don't know. Maybe a five.

Greenlee: Yes. I'm still the queen of rock bottom. Sit.

Josh: Wait a minute. Don't tell me you drank all of these yourself?

Greenlee: Half of them are Jake's. You guys are related.

Josh: Yeah.

Greenlee: Weird.

Josh: Yeah.

Greenlee: Anyway, Jake and I have established that my life blows way more than anyone else's. Hence --

Josh: Queen of rock bottom.

Greenlee: Yeah, yeah, I should have a crown or a tiara. Has anyone told you just how handsome you are today?

Josh: I don't know. Actually, they haven't. Has anyone told you just how drunk you are?

Greenlee: Yeah. Me. Oh, and, um, that girl over there. I may or may not have spilled my drink on her.

Josh: Oh, that's nice.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Kendall: Why is this making you so angry?

Zach: Well, because all I'm -- all I'm trying to do is let things go, get past this, and you won't let us.

Kendall: How am I stopping this?

Zach: Because you're holding on to everything. Everything. You and Aidan made a mistake. I'm trying to move past it. And Greenlee says something stupid, something inconsequential, and here we are in a beautiful living room, fighting about it. What is that?

Kendall: Ok, so, basically, what you're saying is you're above it all, and I'm the petty idiot. Is that what you're saying?

Zach: I -- no, I -- no, that's -- no, that's not what I'm -- what I'm sayings you've got to let some things go so we can move on.

Kendall: I can't. How can I? It's in my face all the time.

Zach: Well, tune it out.

Kendall: I can't. It -- it's connected. Greenlee and Aidan, you and me.

Zach: No, it's not connected. Aidan and Greenlee, that's them. You and me, that's us. It's different. So believe in that. Believe in us. Can you do that?

Kendall: I do.

Zach: You do?

Kendall: Yes.

Zach: But it's not enough, is it?

Krystal: Not hating Adam scares me. Wow, ok. This -- this I got to hear. Why, Dr. Freud?

Tad: Because hating him is what keeps you away.

Krystal: I have plenty of reasons to steer clear of that man.

Tad: Name one.

Krystal: Jenny.

Tad: Touché.

Krystal: But now you think everything's going to be fine. You think Adam is going to be kinder and gentler from here on out --

Tad: I'm not saying anything like that --

Krystal: Because don't kid yourself, Tad Martin. Adam Chandler is just taking a breather while he sits there and stockpiles a whole new mess of evil.

Tad: And if he's not?

Krystal: Oh, you mean if he's human?

Tad: Mm-hmm.

Krystal: Well, that's very interesting, because that's what I was trying to tell you not too long ago. And Babe, while she was trying to rip Adam a new one.

Tad: And now you've completely changed your mind?

Krystal: Now, you know what I did? I took your advice. And I sat down, and I added up all of the horrible, horrible things that Adam has done to you and me and to Jenny, and that list scares the hell out of me, Tad, because you were absolutely right. Adam Chandler is nothing but -- he's a cruel son-of-a-bitch, you know? And -- and that -- that's just the way it is.

Tad: Maybe that's the way you need it to be. Once upon a time, you loved him. Fiercely. Now, are you telling me that in your heart of hearts that kind of love is completely gone?

Krystal: We've talked about this, Tad.

Tad: Yeah.

Krystal: There -- there is a pull.

Tad: There is a pull. It's a whole lot easier to resist as long as he behaves like a jackass.

Krystal: So you're afraid that I'm weak. You're afraid that now that Adam has done this good deed that I am just going to fall to my knees and just cave in.

Tad: No, no, no, no, no, listen. I don't think you're weak. Lord, anything but. I just think you're human. I think -- I think you want to believe that Adam can't change because, if he could, you'd be afraid there's nothing to keep you from going back to him.

Babe: It's official. I'm in hell.

Amanda: Where are you?

Babe: I'm in some skeevy motel room on Belmont.

Amanda: Gross! They rent rooms by the half-hour there.

Babe: How do you know that, Amanda?

Amanda: Never mind. Was that Treena's pimp you were with?

Babe: Well, he's my pimp now.

Amanda: Ok, that's too much. I'm coming to get you.

Babe: No, no, not yet, ok? I still have to get Treena to cough up the goods on Richie, so I have to keep playing along.

Amanda: You are in a gross motel room. How far are you going to take this?

Man: Well, you sure are taking your sweet-ass time.

Amanda: Oh, my God!

Babe: Uh, look, I'm -- I'm sorry, ok? I'm on the phone with my kid's sitter, but -- but I'll be right out.

Man: Ok, well, hurry up, ok, because I'm getting bored out here.

Babe: Don't you worry. It'll be worth the wait. I promise.

[Man scoffs]

Man: Better.

Babe: Are you still there?

Amanda: Ok, I think it's time to abort the mission. That guy just called you "sweet-ass."

Babe: Don't worry about it, Amanda. I have everything under control.

[Amanda sighs]

[Man wolf-whistles]

Man: Hello. You just made my day?

Amanda: Oh, yeah? Well, get out of here before I dropkick you into tomorrow!

Greenlee: Thanks for my crown, by the way.

Jake: You're welcome.

Josh: It's very cute.

Greenlee: You guys, how did I get here? Just a couple of days ago, I had everything I ever wanted. The love of my life, the best friend, the rock. And then, all of a sudden, poof! It's gone. Is it so wrong to want to be loved?

Jake: That's what everybody wants.

Josh: You deserve all of that, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Right?

Josh: Yeah.

Greenlee: Right! That's how I feel. What am I saying? I don't even know how I feel or what to feel first. Angry, betrayed, devastated?

Josh: Well, you deserve to feel all of those things.

Jake: That's true, that's true, nephew. Just take it as it comes.

Greenlee: You want to know the worst part? After everything she did to me -- I know she's your sister, but I'm allowed to vent.

Josh: Vent, go on, vent.

Greenlee: Thank you. Anyway, I look at Kendall, and you know what emotion washes over me? Jealousy. Plain and simple. She's got everything, and I've got nothing.

Jake: Now, that's just not true.

Josh: What are you talking about? You have your dad.

Jake: Yeah, and you've got your dad.

Josh: And Fusion.

Greenlee: I do, don't I?

Josh: Yeah.

Greenlee: You're right. Both of you. Why am I sitting here feeling sorry for myself?

Josh: Beats me.

Jake: I don't know.

Greenlee: I am a confident, kick-ass business woman.

[Jake & Josh laugh]

Greenlee: Who never takes no for an answer. What?

[Jake & Josh laugh]

Greenlee: I'm sure as hell not going to start now. To me.

Jake: Ok. I can't.

Greenlee: Mm.

Josh: I can.

Greenlee: This is good. I feel energized, empowered. I'm grabbing what I want with both hands. Starting tonight.

Zach: I asked you a question. Is what we have enough or not?

Kendall: I believe in us, Zach, more than anything.

Zach: All right. Act like it. Focus on us and our kids. Stop obsessing about Greenlee.

Kendall: Ok, but when -- when you've been through as much as Greenlee and I have, it -- she's a part of me, and you told me you understood that.

Zach: No, I do understand. But when your relationship with her interferes with your relationship with me, then I've got to stop it. What do you want me to do?

Kendall: She's my sister, Zach. We're -- we're sisters, ok? I can't just ignore what she says.

Zach: All right, perfect. We've got to do something because this isn't working.

Kendall: I -- I can't, I can't. Not now. Not when she's sending these signals.

Zach: What signals?

Kendall: Forget it.

Zach: No, you still -- what -- what signals? What are you talking about?

Kendall: Greenlee stole Ryan, ok? I loved him, and she took him. And now it feels like maybe history is repeating itself.

Zach: I'm not Ryan.

Kendall: I won't let her take you away from me.

Zach: No, I can see that. You're just going to push me away.

Kendall: No. Zach -- Zach, come on, please!

[Door opens and slams]

Kendall: I did it again. Unreal. Damn it, pick up! Zach, hey, it's me. Uh, can you just call me, please? Or, actually, can you just come home? We need to finish this conversation. I love you.

Krystal: I got plenty of reasons to stay put, Tad. You. And Jenny. And our home, our life. I love our life.

Tad: I know you do, I know you do, so --

Krystal: Well, then why are you doing it? I mean, are you trying to get me to go back to Adam? Is that what you're doing?

Tad: God, no.

Krystal: Well, then -- then what?

Tad: Krystal, if you and I have ever had anything together, it's the fact that we've always been honest with one another. I think you deserve the right to be honest with yourself.

Krystal: Yeah, well, maybe you need a little reality check yourself, Tad. I mean, this is Adam Chandler that we're talking about.

Tad: Yeah, yes it is.

Krystal: The man that stole our baby and tried to sell her.

Tad: I know, I know.

Krystal: And don't forget, he burned down your house. Did you forget that?

Tad: I haven't forgot anything he's done to me and mine. I got shot. I didn't get a lobotomy. Lord knows the minute he steps out of line, I'll probably want to shove him down an empty elevator shaft. But for now, today, I got to acknowledge the fact that against all the odds, no matter what it cost him, he had the guts to do the right thing. I know we have a good thing, maybe the best of things, but the truth is it wasn't quite what you had with him.

Krystal: Not quite what you had with Dixie, either.

Tad: Well, I guess that choice has sort of been made for me.

Krystal: Yeah. And for Adam. I mean, with him being such an evil --

Tad: Behaving like Adam. It was made for you, too. Until now.

[Krystal sighs]

Krystal: When did things get so damn complicated, Tad?

Tad: I'm starting to think they've always been kind of complicated.

Krystal: No, no, not like this. I mean, this absolutely -- it blows my mind. I mean, is it possible? And that you think Adam Chandler is -- is a changed man?

Adam: This is ludicrous. I'm not a drooling half-wit.

J.R.: Yeah? That article says otherwise.

Adam: Really. Well, it'll be old news by tomorrow afternoon.

J.R.: We need to call a board meeting. It's going to take some convincing.

Adam: Well, that shouldn't be a problem. Unless --

J.R.: What?

Adam: What if this story was leaked by one of our own, J.R.?

J.R.: Dad, you can't be serious.

Adam: No? Well, what better way to get rid of me than a vote of no confidence?

J.R.: Nobody on the board would do that.

Adam: No? What about that -- that -- that, uh, that little, uh, Nelson, uh, that little twig with glasses?

J.R.: Nolan?

Adam: Yeah. He's always had it in for me.

J.R.: All right, let me get this right. Instead of fix this nightmare, you'd rather attack our board?

Adam: Yeah. You with me?

J.R.: Uh, no. I got to go.

Adam: J.R. --

J.R.: Dad, do me a favor and the company. Stay out of the damn news.

[Adam scoffs]

Adam: Yeah, Barry, it's me. Um, listen, um, no, of course, I'm not going to just take it lying down. Tell you what. Um, you find out who this "somebody" is and then bring his name to me.

Amanda: Come on, Babe. Call me back.

Man: Client stand you up?

Amanda: Excuse me?

Man: Mind if ask what you're doing on this street corner?

Amanda: Yeah, I do. I'm waiting for a friend.

Man: You're coming with us, ma'am.

Amanda: Ma'am? Don't touch me!

Man: You're under arrest.

Amanda: Uh, and you're hilarious. What? For what?

Officer: Solicitation.

Amanda: Solicit -- you think I'm a hooker?

Man: Wow, it's about time.

Babe: Um, Treena, Treena, c-c-can I talk to you for a sec?

Treena: Yeah, yeah, no problem. Hold that thought.

Babe: Uh, hey, listen. Um, my -- my kid's sick. I got -- I have to bail.

Treena: Oh, man. I totally feel for you. I've got kids of my own.

Babe: So it's -- it's cool, right?

Treena: With me. Tony's not going to like it. And neither are they.

Man: Uh, what's the holdup here?

Babe: Uh, listen. I'm -- I'm really sorry, but my -- my kid's sick. I have to go. I have to go pick him up, so --

Man: Oh, boo-freaking-hoo. Listen, honey, we paid for a good time, and that's exactly what we're going to get.

Krystal: You know what?

Tad: What?

Krystal: You have a heart of gold, Tad. You do. And I don't know how I got so lucky.

Tad: Yeah, you def -- definitely won the lottery with this guy.

Krystal: I did. I did. And here we are, talking about me when you are the one lying here in this hospital bed. You want anything? You want some water? Want a snack or something?

Tad: No, no. I was hoping for something a little bigger.

Krystal: Well, don't expect me to get your beloved pinball machine in here, because I don't think these arms could handle it.

Tad: You think they can handle a six-year-old? It's time. I -- I've got to talk to Kathy.

Krystal: What are you going to say?

Tad: I haven't got a clue. But my daughter deserves some answers.

Kendall: Come on, ring. Hey, don't do this to me. Last time you walked out on us, you disappeared. With Greenlee.

Greenlee (to Josh): Come on. Don't be shy.

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

Amanda: I need a drink.

Aidan: So do I.

Greenlee: I wasn't entirely sure this would be a good idea, but now it's feeling genius.

Kendall (to Zach): You slept with Greenlee.
