Joe: "The tornados left our town devastated, but not destroyed. As our community struggles to recover and rebuild, the mayor has asked the citizens of Pine Valley to come together in a moment of silence."
Tad: At 5:32?
Krystal: That's when the first tornado hit.
Tad: "5:32 P.M. the tornado siren will sound to mark the beginning of our observance. We will honor and remember those who lost their lives, and we will pray for those who lost their homes and their loved ones."
Opal: "And we will pray for those who lost homes and loved ones."
Jesse: "We will pray for strength for those injured and those who are caring for them."
Bianca: How's Kendall?
Zach: She's still unresponsive.
Jack: "And when the second siren sounds, Pine Valley will carry on, offering aid to those in need, opening doors to those left homeless."
Erica: Adam, what do you think you are doing with my belongings?
Adam: The Yacht Club isn't structurally sound. You need -- you needed a place to stay. Where better than with me?
Joe: "We will rebuild homes and lives. We will restore Pine Valley for our families and for generations to come."
Colby: Dr. Martin, Dr. Martin. Pete and I are volunteering with the clean up at City Hall, and we found this woman in the basement rubble. She'll only tell us her first name, and she seems real confused.
Pete: This is Aggie.
Joe: Hello, Aggie. My name is Joe Martin, and I'm a doctor. Do you know where you are?
Aggie: It looks very familiar.
Adam: Take Ms. Kane's luggage upstairs.
Erica: No, no, no. Leave everything where it is. You have no right to move my things or touch my things.
Adam: Well, I wasn't about to just stand back and watch the Yacht Club collapse on you.
Erica: Well, I'll go to the Valley Inn.
Adam: No, they're full. All their rooms have been taken up by the people whose homes were destroyed in the tornados.
Erica: Well then I'll take a suite in New York, that's all. Bianca and Kendall need me here. Ok. All right, one night. I'll stay for just one night only -- just long enough to make other arrangements.
Adam: Take Ms. Kane's luggage upstairs, the guest suite in the east wing -- the one next to mine.
Erica: No, no, no. In the west wing, thank you, as far away as possible from Adam's.
Adam: You may get lonely.
Erica: Not that lonely.
Joe: Did you suffer a bump on the head?
Aggie: I think I know you. And you too, dear.
Joe: Well, it's possible. It's a small town. Any nausea or any dizziness?
Aggie: Oh, I'm fine as long as I have my stories with me.
Ruth: That's a very big book.
Aggie: Just a little something I wrote.
Joe: Would you excuse me? May I talk to you?
Pete: So, Dr. Martin, what, uh -- what do you think is wrong with her?
Joe: Well, as far as I can tell, nothing. No bruises, no concussion. I can keep her overnight for observation.
Ruth: Joe, the strangest thing. Aggie just asked me why I wasn't in uniform. How does she know I'm a nurse?
Colby: Oh, no. Where did she go?
Frankie: I'm late for my shift.
Jesse: Listen, five minutes. Five minutes, please. Franklin, listen. I understand that you're mad at me, but really, why would you take it out on Rebecca and Natalia?
Frankie: You know, you could have come home to us years ago, but you didn't. And when you got home, you could have been honest about the other family, but you lied. I am sick to death of people throwing around lies and secrets and claiming it's out of love.
Jesse: It was out of love, and you ought know that, Frankie. And I'm sorry.
Frankie: Look, I forgave you when you left. I even forgave you when you popped back up into our lives after 20 years. But this? This, I don't know.
Krystal: He was only gone overnight, and I miss him. How's his fever?
J.R.: Uh, it's gone. And he cleaned up all his breakfast this morning, so --
Krystal: How about you? Do you had anything on your stomach? You want a sandwich?
J.R.: Um, yeah.
J.R.: Please, thank you. How is she?
Tad: She's better. Actually, she's a lot better now that you and your son have decided to stay in Pine Valley. I can't thank you enough, J.R. That had to be a very hard decision to make, especially with Hayward out there lurking around somewhere.
J.R.: I'm not going to run from him. How are the knuckles?
Tad: Oh, I just wish I'd smacked him twice, you know, once for Little Adam and then once for Krystal. I still can't believe the power he has over a decent, honest, wonderful woman.
David: Your heart's strong, blood pressure's down. You can feel free to resume normal activities. Just don't overdo it.
Opal: Funny, isn't it, though how some poor unsuspecting soul off the street might just take you for a regular nice guy doctor who's all about healing the sick and saving lives.
David: I am.
Opal: We know better.
David: Opal, how is Little Adam?
Opal: He's just fine and dandy without your interference. So keep it that way, would you? Stay away from him.
Bianca: Are you sure we can't get you anything? Some food, something to drink?
Zach: No, I'm good, thank you.
Reese: Ok. Well, we'll be upstairs if you do need anything.
Kendall's voice: I love you, Zach. I love you. God, I love you. It's picking up out there.
Zach's voice: Just down the road. I'll be back in no time. Take care of your mom.
Jack: You know, Adam, I think I finally figured out what the hell is going on around here.
Adam: Good for you. Next time leave a message. I hope you don't expect me to make you a drink.
Jack: I think Erica decided to get as close to you as she could so she could figure out if you were the one behind the tainting of Bella. I think she found all the proof she needed. I think she threatened to expose you unless you very quietly got rid of those class action lawsuits.
Adam: You know, I've tried to tell you, Jack. Erica and I are not about business.
Jack: Adam, Erica wouldn't have a thing to do with you if it wasn't helping her daughter, Kendall.
Adam: Oh, you go right on believing that one.
Jack: I will, believe me. Adam, you never give up. You never quit until you've won. Now, you and I both know that this lawsuit you had against Fusion was a slam dunk. So, why would a man like you pull out at the last minute unless -- unless Erica forced your hand?
Adam: Ah, Erica convinced me to do the right thing. You know how persuasive she can be.
Jack: So you're telling me that you did all of this out of your love for Erica and that she has feelings for you. You know what? I don't buy it.
Erica: Jackson, what a surprise.
Zach: You want this? Sure.
Reese: How about another one for you?
Zach: Another one?
Reese: Ooh, there he is.
Zach: God, you're getting chubby. Stay with me. Let me tell you a story. What is this thing? Yeah, your mom's going to have to get a little bit more "Sleeping Beauty" sleep. What is that thing?
Reese: And here it is. Here's that book. There it is. We were looking for it.
Zach: Come sit and let me tell you a story. All right. Ladies and gentlemen, once upon a time in a country far, far away there lived a beautiful princess.
David: All right, Princess, rise and shine.
Amanda: Mind turning it down a few decibels?
Amanda: I feel like the sky fell on my head. How did I get here?
David: The bartender called. You passed out.
Amanda: That's embarrassing. I feel like hell. What?
David: What do you want, Amanda?
Amanda: For the room to stop spinning and my mouth not to taste like cotton.
David: I'm talking long term.
Amanda: Some Jimmy Choo boots and --
David: So, that's how you want to live your life, from paycheck to bar to some guy's bed, shoe shopping on the side?
Amanda: Sounds good.
David: You're smart. You're beautiful. There's a lot more to you than T&A and some smartass comments. You're alive, Amanda. Don't waste it.
Amanda: I know what I don't want. I don't want to love men who dump me. I don't want to be used by men who dump me, and I don't want to need men who dump me.
David: You don't want to be used, then do something about it. Think, Amanda, long and hard. What do you want?
Amanda: I want my five million back.
David: Then you should go get it.
Tad: I almost forgot. Some stuff came from San Diego. The hotel sent it.
J.R.: Babe loved this picture. She wanted to show the bag handlers and the bellboys, everyone.
[J.R. unzips the suitcase]
J.R.: I bought this for her.
David: An amino acid, the best thing in the world for a hangover. Now focus on getting your five million back.
Amanda: I can't. I lost it in Bella.
David: All right, then go back to the source.
Amanda: The Chandlers? No way.
David: Why not? You've done it before.
Amanda: Well, I had a lot to work with. Adam screwed up, J.R. screwed up. All I had to do was collect the cash. And J.R. didn't even pay, it was all Adam.
David: All right, then this time you go right to J.R., and you don't stop until he writes you a check.
Amanda: Again, no can do.
David: Why not?
Amanda: Babe. I love her. There's no way I could rip up J.R.
David: That's very honorable especially given the way J.R. feels about you.
Amanda: I didn't say he wasn't a jerk.
David: Ok, then love Babe, but teach J.R. a lesson. He owes you, Amanda, big time. Now is your chance. Make him pay and don't stop until you get every dime you can out of him.
Angie: Rebecca's awake. She's asking for you.
Frankie: You heard that, huh?
Angie: Hard not to.
Frankie: How can you do this? Accept this, accept them?
Angie: Sweetheart, I feel just as betrayed as you.
Frankie: Yeah, but you're in there holding his hand, Ma, and Rebecca's.
Angie: She's the reason Jesse's alive to come back to us.
Frankie: Oh. I'll send her a thank you note.
Angie: Frankie, he was tortured. He nearly died. And living on the run like that, as strong as your father is, he fell apart because he lost us.
Frankie: We fell apart, too, Ma.
Angie: Yeah, but we had each other. Jesse had no one until Rebecca. She saved him. She brought him back to life. And baby, now she's dying. And when she's gone, Natalia's going to be all alone. Now, we can't let her fall apart, too. It's our turn to help. It's our turn to keep this family intact.
Amanda: Thanks for scraping me off my bar stool last night. I need to go home and change, get to work.
David: So, that's it, huh? You have a shot at five million, and you're not going to take it.
Amanda: Well, as much as I hate J.R., Dr. Brilliant, I don't have the key ingredient. I don't have anything to blackmail him with. So, I'm going to go to work, collect my paycheck like a good little worker bee, and try to forget that I lost millions of dollars.
David: All right. I'll tell you what. Forget the Chandler money. You bring down J.R., I'll pay you $5 million.
Erica: Adam, could you please give us a few minutes?
Adam: Oh, of course. Take all the time you'd like.
Jack: Look, I know you have something on Adam. If it's as big as I think it is, you don't have to do this. We can take a legal action.
[Erica hugs Jack]
Zach: And they lived happily ever after.
Reese: Oh, just missed the daily dosage of "Sleeping Beauty." It's ok, Miranda. I will read it to you later. Is that all right?
Bianca: Hey, I've got an idea. Miranda, why don't you take Spike upstairs, and you guys can play?
Zach: I think that's a great idea.
Reese: Good idea.
Zach: Come on, big boy.
Reese: What is in your hand?
Zach: All right, here.
Reese: It's a cookie? A cookie for Spike?
Zach: You've got cookies up there.
Reese: Oh, look. Lookie, look. You want some juice? Maybe you could get him some juice. Do you think you could get him some juice on the way? I think there's a cup already filled. You can just grab a new one.
Bianca: Hmm, have fun, you guys.
Zach: Thanks for, uh -- for taking care of the boys.
Bianca: Oh, of course.
Zach: How's everything here?
Bianca: Fine. I mean, of course, Mom's in turbo-drive over at Fusion. Reese is overseeing the renovations including to her office.
Zach: I could do with another office, too. Building manager called and said that the roof ended up somewhere in Oz. So, if -- if you wouldn't mind -- I'm sorry, but maybe look after the boys a few more hours? I've got to go check it out, see what the damage is, and --
Reese: You know, I actually went over there earlier and the damage is pretty extensive, but I've got some ideas for rebuilding if you're interested.
Zach: Really? Rebuilding ideas, huh? I'll listen to you. First, I'm going to go check it out. First, this man's going to get some rest.
Reese: Oh, yeah?
Zach: You cool with that?
Reese: You going to go for a nap?
Zach: Say, "see you later."
Reese: Are you going for a nap?
Bianca: I didn't know you'd been to the casino.
Reese: Oh, yeah. You know me. Can't keep me away from a building in need.
Bianca: Ah. That bad, huh?
Reese: Yeah, it was. It could take at least six months for renovations. It would take me at least six months just to stabilize the infrastructure and then --
Bianca: Whoa. What do you mean it would take you six months?
Reese: Well, I mean if I did the work it would. Sweetie, I was thinking, would you want to stay for a while?
Bianca: Yeah. God, yeah. I -- I'd love to stay in Pine Valley for good.
J.R.: I'm going to the cemetery.
J.R.: I want to be with Babe for the moment of silence.
Krystal: I'll join you later, ok?
Opal: Poor lost soul. He's nowhere without his Babe.
Colby: Tad? Tad, you have to help us. We found this lady. We took her to the hospital, and she just disappeared. We've looked everywhere. I was hoping you could use your PI stuff and help us out.
Pete: Never mind.
Colby: Aggie, how are you? Where did you go? How did you find us? Did -- did you follow us?
Aggie: Follow you? My dear, this is my home.
David: What do you say we start at $500,000? Sound good?
Amanda: A signing bonus?
David: Every time you push J.R. closer to the abyss, you'll get another check. When you bring him down for good, you will be $5 million richer. Come on, Amanda, now is your chance to make J.R. squirm -- your turn to win. All you got to do is play.
Jack: What was the hug for?
Erica: You were always there for me when I was in prison. And after everything we've been through, I just wanted you to know that I want to be available to you. I -- I think that we've just lived through a nightmare, and -- how is Greenlee?
Jack: Greenlee, Greenlee -- uh, she's with Ryan, so I -- I don't know. I haven't heard.
Erica: Well, I hope that she's all right. And -- and if there's anything I can do --
Jack: Well, you know, just, um, this -- this is nice. This is nice just seeing you in a robe in Adam Chandler's house. I mean, is it love? Because that's what Adam says it is.
Erica: Oh, hardly.
Jack: Thank God. So, what are you doing here like that?
Erica: One night. One. It's a roof over my head while I take care of Kendall's business for her.
Jack: You know, Kendall will be home.
Erica: Yes, I do. I know that she will be home. And in the meantime I have a business to rebuild, and I have a family to look after, and Bianca and Reese have a beautiful new baby. They're engaged.
Erica: And Zach needs some help, you know, looking after those two beautiful little baby boys.
Jack: Doesn't leave you much time to yourself.
Erica: Or relationships. But you do definitely have my friendship, because --
Jack: Good. Because I couldn't get by without it. I want you to be careful. I want you to keep your eye on Adam, because he's up to something. I just know it.
Erica: Well, Adam's always up to something. But don't worry. I have everything under control.
Reese: You want to stay here? For good? Make Pine Valley our home?
Bianca: No. I -- no, I don't -- I don't know. I just -- I just feel like I need to be here right now for my family. It's a bad idea. I'm sorry. Forget I said anything. You just built me a house in France.
Reese: So what? The house is going to be there. The house isn't going anywhere. What's important is that you're with your family. Sweetie, they need you. You need them right now.
Bianca: Are you sure it's ok?
Reese: Of course, it is.
Bianca: God, I just -- I -- I just didn't know I could love you any more than I do.
Reese: Are you sure about that?
Reese: Nor I you. Sweetheart, when I see you with your friends, with your family, it's just right. I'm not taking you away from that.
Aggie: Well, I just had to visit my dear friends, Myrtle Fargate and Pete Cooney. Oh, I mean Palmer Courtland.
Opal: You knew Myrt and Palmer?
Aggie: Doesn't everyone?
Tad: Uh, Aggie, you -- you used to live here?
Aggie: I still do. Of course, it's a little different now, but basically it's the same.
Colby: Here, like in, Pine Valley here?
Aggie: No, dear. I mean here. Everywhere.
Pete: Why don't we take you down to the hospital. I'm sure Dr. Martin will take really good care of you.
Aggie: Tad, how's your arm?
Tad: Oh, it's, uh, fine.
Aggie: Oh, thank heavens. It was such a bad break.
Tad: Oh, no, no, I just bruised my knuckle. I didn't break my arm.
Opal: Ray Gardner broke it -- when he was a little boy.
Pete: Why don't I take that book for you? It looks to be really heavy.
Aggie: Oh, no, not for me. I really love hanging onto it.
Opal: I -- I think there's something burning.
Krystal: There's -- there's nothing in the oven.
Tad: Would you excuse me? What?
Opal: Her aura. It was amazing. I've never seen anything like it. It wasn't just one color of the spectrum. It was all the colors. It was like she brought a whole gaggle of spirits with her.
Tad: Mom, why don't you have a good lie-down?
Opal: I don't need a nap. I know what I saw, and there is something about that woman.
Colby: Oh, no.
J.R.: I wake up every morning expecting to see you. I see that curve in your neck, the smell of your hair. I used to love how you'd say, "just five more minutes." I would give anything for those five more minutes.
Fireman: Mr. Slater, you shouldn't be here. The walls could cave at any time.
Angie: Frankie wants to talk to you.
Frankie: The first year you died, I prayed to God every single night for him to just bring you back to us. I promised I would do anything -- eat my veggies, do my homework, keep my room clean, if he would just let you come home. The next year, I prayed the same prayer. The year after that, I did the same thing, the same prayer, and it's been 20 years now, and God -- he's finally answered my prayers. I'm still angry.
Jesse: I know.
Frankie: And I'm hurt.
Jesse: Yeah. You have every right to be. I know.
Frankie: Listen, what I said earlier -- I know --
Jesse: Hey, hey, hey, it's ok.
Frankie: No, it's not. There's so much that I don't know or don't understand, and I probably never will, but I guess you're not a hero if you don't have to make difficult, tough, life-changing decisions. I forgive you. I forgive you.
J.R.: I thought you'd be with David.
J.R.: I saw your car at Wildwind.
Amanda: It's a long story.
Amanda: It was a mistake. Ok, I'm sorry that I even talked to him. It's just that Jake's gone, Babe's here. I'm just so lonely. How do you do it? How are you dealing with the loneliness? I'm sorry.
J.R.: It's all right.
Amanda: It's, uh -- it's almost time for the moment of silence. It would really mean a lot to me. I would really like to spend it with Babe -- and you if that's ok. Would you mind if I stayed?
Adam: Uh, leaving so soon?
Erica: Where are you going to be during the moment of silence?
Jack: I -- home, I guess. Why?
Erica: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not. No. You need to be with your loved ones. Oh, and so do you.
Colby: Aggie didn't come back?
Krystal: I haven't seen her.
Pete: It's so weird. It's as if she just vanished.
Opal: Weird isn't the half of it. I googled "Aggie."
Tad: Oh, for God's sake. You taught her the computer?
Opal: And it seems that this town was started in 1870 by a woman named Aggie.
Colby: No way.
Opal: Well, here. Have a look at the picture. You tell me.
Colby: But this means -- that would make her a --
Opal: And that's not the half of it. Seems she wrote a book.
Colby: The one she was carrying?
Opal: See here. It says it was a real big seller. It was called, "All My Children." Well, as far as I'm concerned, that proves it. I mean, Aggie is from the other side.
Joe: Well, it's the healthiest ghost I've ever seen.
Tad: Come on, Ma. I mean, you know, even if it were true, why would she appear to us now?
Opal: Well, think about it. I mean, this is her town, we are her people, the biggest storm of the century. It's just walloped the stuffing right out of us. I think that she obviously wants to give us a sign that -- that Pine Valley can rise up out of the ashes.
Bianca: Oh, Mom, I'm so glad you could come.
Erica: I brought someone.
Bianca: Uncle Jack.
Jack: Oh, could it be you've actually grown already? Hey, Reese.
Reese: Hi. How are you?
Bianca: I hope you can come to her christening. You know, I was so torn about whether I should wait for Kendall.
Jack: Well, I mean, on the one hand, you know the minute that Kendall gets home she's going to want to throw Gabby a party, so, I guess the downside is you get two of them.
Bianca: You get two parties.
Reese: Lucky you.
Tad: Well, we've got about a minute.
[Knock on door]
Colby: It might be Aggie.
Adam: I thought you might be here.
Tad: It's all right, Adam. By all means, come on in.
[As the siren sounds, everyone holds hands]
Joe: As we mourn the loved ones we've lost, thank you for those we can join hands with in this moment.
J.R.: Look down on us, and know that we love you, Babe. We'll look up and know that you're lighting heaven so bright with that smile. Just let her be at peace, God.
Jesse: Give us the strength to find our way and the courage to make the right choices. Let my whole family be strong.
Erica: You gave us a sign of hope and love with a new life born in just so much pain and destruction. And so, we pray for mothers to return to hold their children, wives to be back in their husbands' arms, families to be whole again. With grace and strength, we'll do better than survive. We'll rise from this even stronger, the great and the least.
Adam: The rich and the poor.
Jesse: The weak and the strong.
Tad: In joy and in sorrow.
Joe: In tragedy and triumph.
Aggie: You are all my children.
