Amanda: Most everyone you know is in there. Do you really want them all to know you started drinking again?
J.R.: Ask me if I give a damn.
Amanda: I -- I thought you said alcohol wasn't that important to you.
J.R.: Yeah? Well, I lied. Babe's dead, Tad's missing along with my brother, Krystal's hanging out with that bastard Hayward behaving just like my mother did. Yeah, this baby right here is about the only friend I have left.
Zach: I don't understand.
Reese: Look, it's complicated, all right? Just -- just accept it. You and I can't be friends anymore.
Zach: I can't do that. I need a reason.
Bianca: Don't do this, Mom. You've stirred things up enough already.
Erica: Bianca, Reese was the one who got overly defensive.
Bianca: There is nothing going on between Reese and Zach. Drop it.
Greenlee: Well, when you read the cards everything was sunshine and super-sized happiness for me and Ryan.
Opal: I was wrong.
Ryan: Opal, the point is -- is that Greenlee and I are in love, and now we're getting married.
Opal: No. No, you cannot get married. You see, there were some cards missing from the deck, and so that means the whole reading was not accurate. After you left I read your tea leaves. It's clear as the nose on your face. You must not get married.
Jake: I need some help over here.
Opal: Oh, my God.
Jake: Krystal? Are you ok?
David: She's my patient. Get out of the way.
Jake: Hayward -- Hayward, I'm not going to start --
David: If you want to help, go get some water. You ok?
Jake: Excuse me.
Krystal: I, uh --
David: It's all right. Here, here. Drink some water.
Krystal: Oh, thank you. Thank you. Mm.
David: You're ok. You're ok. It's ok, everyone. She just got dizzy.
Krystal: No, it was -- it was the phone call.
Opal: Was it Tad?
Krystal: They found Tad and Jeff and Jamie. They're all ok. That -- that was the embassy. They said Tad is at some hospital in the Congo. That's all I know. That, and he told them to tell me he's going to be coming home soon.
David: Here you go. You have some color back in your cheeks.
Krystal: Listen. I didn't come here with you. I came on my own, so please just -- just leave me alone, all right?
Opal: Yeah, I don't know exactly when, Joe, just that he's ok, and he's coming home. You're telling me. Yeah, give Ruthie a huge for me, would you? All righty. Okie dokie. Bye-bye.
Jake: Are you seeing what I'm seeing, Opal?
Opal: I'm seeing a woman who played fast and loose with Tad and Adam, who went to jail for her part in an ugly lie about switched up babies, but I'm also seeing a woman who just lost her child and who is easy prey to that snake with a silver tongue on him. Boy, Tad can't get home fast enough.
Jake: I just think that Hayward's out to hurt every Martin he comes across.
Opal: Yeah, well he's going to have to get through me to get any further.
Natalia: Are you sure you don't want me to take you home?
Rebecca: Honey, honey, stop it. I'm fine. I'm excited. Everyone's having fun, and I want to be part of that.
Angie: She's going to be fine, sweetheart. She just needs to take it easy. Her first round of chemo went very well. No dancing on the tables though.
Rebecca: Oh, shoot. I wore my dancing shoes, too. Well, let's go play a round of blackjack then. I'm feeling lucky tonight. Come on.
Randi: Sounds fun. Let's go.
Rebecca: I'll meet you over there.
Angie: Hey, you're quiet. You ok?
Jesse: Yeah, just a little strange showing up at parties with both you and Rebecca.
Angie: Wait a minute. Now you don't like being a player, player? A woman on each arm? Hey, hey, look. I can try and make light of this. You don't have any business complaining.
Jesse: All right.
Reese: All right, all right. Ok. Erica, she got it in her head somehow that you and I are romantically involved.
Zach: You're kidding, right?
Reese: No. No, I'm not, and I would laugh except it really upset Bianca earlier.
Zach: Well, this is ridiculous. Where would she get that idea?
Reese: I don't know. I -- I guess she saw us, and she thought you and I were acting a little too close.
Zach: Wow. Well, besides the obvious, I don't -- why would she think that?
Reese: I don't know, but you know I just think it would be better for all of us if Bianca and I just moved out.
Zach: Well, I don't -- I don't want you moving out. It isn't --
Bianca: Wait, no, no. No, we're not moving out of Zach and Kendall's place. No, we're not going anywhere. You know my mom. She gets an idea in her head and then she just won't stop until she proves herself right.
Reese: There's nothing to prove.
Bianca: No, I know. Exactly. So we just tune her out. Forget it.
Zach: No, no, no. Hang on a second. Your mom is your mom, but she's gone through a lot of stuff, as we all are, with Kendall. Take it easy. I -- I'll find her and talk to her.
Bianca: You just have to know that I will always side with you.
Adam: Are you regretting your decision to come stay?
Erica: Only when I'm harassed by desperate men.
Adam: Ah, yes. Oh, don't gamble away all your money, because you still have to pay me for the use of my home and my staff.
Erica: Adam, I'm really not up for playing games.
Adam: Erica, the day you stop playing games --
[Jack and Carmen walk in]
Adam: It would be a pity for you to stop playing games today. With him, at least you have a chance at winning.
Carmen: This is so exciting. Come on. I want to go play.
Jack: Listen, listen. Why don't you go warm up a table, and I'll join you in a minute, ok? All right, see you in a minute.
Ryan: Listen to me. I love Opal, I do, and she's very, very good at what she does, but she's not perfect, ok? And I'm not going to let her affect whether or not we get married.
Greenlee: She predicted the tornados.
Ryan: Yes, she did. Sometimes she's right, but like she said, sometimes she's not. She makes mistakes, ok? Ok.
Jack: So, I understand congratulations are in order.
Jack: I do hope you're not moving too fast.
Ryan: Well, we can't really move along at all without your go ahead, right? Both legally and blessing-wise.
Jack: Well, in terms of legally, both your divorces are moving along. They're all in process. In terms of my blessing, are you happy?
[Greenlee and Ryan laugh]
Jack: I'll take that as a yes.
Jack: I'm not going to fight that anymore. You have my blessing.
Pete: Here you go.
Woman: Thanks, Pete.
Pete: Hi, guys. Randi, Frankie, this is Scarlet.
Randi: Hi. Nice to meet you. Pete, can I talk to you for a second?
Pete: You like the new look. I'm still getting used to the contacts, but this is a really cool suit, isn't it?
Randi: Very. Um, who's the girl?
Pete: Uh, well, I took your advice about making Colby jealous. Do you think she'll notice?
Randi: She'll be blind not to. How did you meet Scarlet?
Pete: Um, the yellow pages.
Pete: From an escort service. I got the deluxe all-night package.
Randi: She's a hooker?
Pete: It'll show up on my dad's credit card as "Entertainment Services." I'll just tell him I hired a DJ. He won't know they cost that much. If you'll excuse me, I have to look like I'm having fun.
J.R.: Time for a refill.
Amanda: You know what? I have a -- a better idea. Why don't I take you home?
J.R.: You just can't get enough of me, can you? I think I want to drink some of Slater's champagne first.
Colby: J.R., where've you been? Tad's been found. They're -- they're all ok.
J.R.: Well, damn. That calls for a celebration. Cheers.
Colby: What the hell are you doing?
J.R.: Oh, chill out. It's just a little champagne. Tad's alive.
Colby: You were drunk before I told you.
J.R.: Hey, don't talk to me like that. You're my little sister.
Colby: I don't understand.
J.R.: No, you don't. You don't have any idea, do you?
Colby: Please stop.
J.R.: Oh, please go away. Hey, come on. Come on, come on. I want to dance.
Amanda: J.R., please.
J.R.: Come on, let's dance, a little bit.
Colby: J.R.'s drunk. You've got to do something, Daddy.
Amanda: Please give me the bottle.
J.R.: Stop it. Stop. All right. You know what? Fine. I don't need you to have a good time. Woo!
David: You officially earned every single penny I paid you.
Opal: Krystal -- I want to know what's going on with you and David Hayward.
Opal: You're lying.
Krystal: He and I lost a child, all right? I have driven myself sick with grief. Tad's been missing. It's been hell, all right? David just tried to reach out and help. That's all.
Opal: You know I'm sorry for your grief. I know all too well what it's like to lose a daughter. But when Jenny died, I wish my husband could have been half the man that yours is, and he is coming home soon, so don't you forget that.
Krystal: You know, please don't lecture me on how to handle my grief or my marriage.
Opal: Listen up here, missy. I have stood by and watched that man lure Dixie away from Tad, and I'll be damned if I'm going to stand by and watch him do it again.
Rebecca: Right on my number. I can't believe it. Oh, this is more money than I've ever won in my life. This really is my lucky night.
Jesse: Sweetie, listen. Do you have to go? You really got to go? Come on. Get someone else to cover your shift.
Angie: Our new chief of staff over there, he's looking for any excuse he can to clean house. He's already knocked off Jake, and I'm sure I'm next in his sights. Sweetheart, I need to just be a good girl and play by the rules. I'm -- I'm glad she's enjoying herself tonight.
Jack: Well, well, well. A lot of noise coming from this table. Hey, Jesse, how are you? How you doing?
Carmen: Uh, not good. That little ball hates me.
Jack: No, the little ball doesn't hate anybody. He's just a little fickle sometimes. Tell you what -- why don't you have a drink and go ahead and start. Hi.
Jake: Can I borrow you for a second?
Jack: Yeah, sure, Jake. Will you excuse me for just a second? Thanks. What's up?
Jake: Did you hear about Hayward? That he's the new chief of staff.
Jack: Yeah, I did hear that. How does a thing like that happen exactly?
Jake: Monkey business. He plays dirty, and he's trying to get me fired. I mean, the charges are crap.
Jack: So what can I do to help?
Jake: You could take my case, represent me before the board, help me take him down. What do you say?
Jack: I say yes. You can count me in. I'd be happy to.
Ryan: Come and sit for a second. Sit down, and I want you to look at me, ok? Nothing is going to influence our future together.
Greenlee: The dreams that I had?
Ryan: All right, stop. Stop. Nothing, all right? The dream is nothing. Do you trust me?
Greenlee: Of course, I do.
Ryan: You do, right? And you believe in fate, don't you?
Greenlee: Yeah, I do.
Ryan: Ok, well, then hit a button. Hit a button. It's a calendar. Just hit any button. Go ahead.
Ryan: You see, now, I -- I couldn't have planned this any better. We're getting married on February the 14th.
Greenlee: We're what?
Ryan: That's what you hit. You believe in fate, right? Are you on board with this?
Greenlee: Ok. We're getting married on Valentine's Day then.
Bianca: What? You guys -- you guys are getting married on Valentine's Day?
Ryan: Yes, we are. We just chose it. A very scientific method, actually. Why?
Reese: That's actually when we were going to tie the knot.
Greenlee: Oh, then we'll have to choose a different date then.
Ryan: Ah, yeah, well, no. That would be kind of like tempting, you know, fate. The gods might get angry with that. You know what I mean?
Greenlee: Yeah, but we would want to invite the same people that Bianca and Reese would be inviting, so --
Ryan: Yes, that's true. That is true, but we could just kind of alter the time a little bit. You guys could take the evening. We could take the afternoon.
Bianca: You know what? Why -- why don't we just do a double wedding? That'd be fun.
J.R.: Oh, I like this song.
Frankie: Don't look now, but the knockout you brought to the party, she's over there dirty dancing with J.R.
Pete: She's having fun.
Colby: We've got to do something. Get him home --
Adam: You -- you know how he is when he drinks. If we try to confront him now it will make it just worse, make a bigger fool of himself than he already is.
Amanda: All right there, Travolta. It's time to go home. Come on, J.R.
Ryan: Ok, J.R.'s in bad shape.
Greenlee: Are you really surprised? Babe was the one that was keeping him together. Without her he's flying apart.
J.R.: What? What -- what'd you just say?
Ryan: Easy, easy.
J.R.: What'd you say about Babe?
Ryan: Easy, easy, easy, nothing.
J.R.: You know what? I don't need your pity, so don't talk about her.
Zach: What's going on?
Ryan: It just looks like maybe J.R.'s been a wee bit over served potentially.
Zach: I think it's time to go home. Let me get you a cab.
J.R.: I said there wasn't a problem, mm-hmm?
Adam: The hell there isn't a problem. Look at you. You're drunk, J.R. This is your doing, isn't it?
J.R.: Oh, shut up. This had nothing to do with her. I had a drink because I wanted to have a drink, and who the hell wouldn't with a rat bastard father like you? Come on. You want to hit me, don't you? I can see it in your eyes. Come on. Give me your best shot.
Colby: You were right. This is just making things worse. Please, Daddy.
J.R.: That's it. Run away. Go ahead. Do what you do best. Run.
David: Amazing. This is the man in charge of my grandson. Look at him, everyone. Can't even take care of himself much less a child, much less Babe's child.
Zach: Get him out of here.
Amanda: Come on.
J.R.: Put his right here. Let it ride.
Amanda: J.R., let's go. It's time to go home.
J.R.: Lovely party.
Amanda: All right. Party's over.
Randi: Looks like Colby's brother just ruined her night and yours. Sorry.
Pete: Colby didn't even look at me once, even before J.R. came on the scene. I -- I don't get it. I changed my look, I -- I hired a hot date for nothing.
Randi: Hey, it doesn't matter what you're wearing or who you're with. It's who you are that matters.
Pete: Then I'm definitely out of luck. Who I am is a dweeb. I have been all my life. I finally decided to stop fighting it and dweeb it up, wore the glasses and the ties.
Randi: That was a cute look sort of.
Pete: Cute doesn't cut it. I've got the best education -- best education money can buy, learned a million things, but I never learned how to be cool, how to communicate, how to be myself, especially with women, certainly with Colby.
Randi: You really care about her, huh?
Pete: I love her. The only time I'm happy is when I'm with her, but she always blows me off. I have to figure out what I need to do to get her attention.
Erica: Bianca, you can't be serious. A double wedding? With Ryan and Greenlee? Listen to me. Do not ruin your special day by tying it to them. I mean, they are just guaranteed disaster.
Bianca: Reese thinks it's a great idea.
Erica: It would be a huge mistake, honey. Please don't do this.
Bianca: You know, if you feel so strongly about it, then why don't you just step out of wedding planning, and we'll do it on our own?
Erica: Bianca. Bia --
Zach: All right. Well, congratulations. Glad it worked out for both of you, and I know Kendall would be happy, too.
Greenlee: Yeah, it's going to give her another reason to wake up. I know she'll be there for it.
Angie: You hanging in there?
Rebecca: I'm a little tired, but this sure beats the hell out of chemo. You know, acting like a normal person, laughing, and having fun, and not hooked to some machine.
Angie: Well, sometimes that's the best medicine there is.
Rebecca: Yeah. Oh -- ooh.
[Angie and Rebecca laugh]
Rebecca: Oh, my.
David: You ok?
Krystal: Ok? You've got to be kidding. Hell no, I am not ok.
David: All right. Just take slow, deep breaths, ok? That's it. Slow your breathing down.
Krystal: All right, I just -- just please leave me alone, all right? I don't need you.
David: Krystal, you've had a shock. That's all. But it's good news, right? I mean, Tad is coming home.
Krystal: What is wrong with me? Why am I thinking the horrible things that I am thinking? I actually didn't want Tad to come home. I mean, what kind of a wife, what -- what kind of a horrible person am I?
Erica: Have you heard about the wedding? I mean, they're going to have a two-fer? Greenlee and Ryan and Bianca and Reese?
Jack: Actually I hadn't heard that part, no.
Erica: Oh, Jack, please, please try to talk Greenlee out of this whole horrible thing.
Jack: Erica, Greenlee is happy and so is Ryan. Maybe they figured something out that we never could. Maybe they can actually make a go of it this time.
Erica: Jack, you know very well that this is a recipe for disaster. I mean, it's just -- it's too soon for both of them.
Jack: I didn't realize there was a waiting period.
Erica: Yeah, I -- I gathered that much. Personally, speaking for myself, I don't believe in doing rebound relationships. They don't work.
Carmen: Just not my night, I guess.
Frankie: Looking at something? No? Because it looked like you were checking out my lady.
Randi: Frankie, stop, ok?
Frankie: Walk away.
Randi: He didn't recognize me.
Frankie: How can you be sure? I'm getting a drink.
Carmen: What was that about?
Randi: My ex-pimp put a video out, all over the Internet, of me. He had a hidden camera while I...
Carmen: Oh, honey, I'm so sorry. What can I do?
Randi: Nothing. It's out there forever. So can we just not talk about it? What's up with you and Jackson?
Carmen: Nothing much. We kind of stalled out, you know? Like we're stuck on neutral and not really going anywhere.
Randi: Maybe it's just the after-holidays blues. People get like that sometimes.
Carmen: Yeah, maybe.
Angie: I wonder how many times they've danced like that? How many parties, friends' weddings? They seem so comfortable together.
Frankie: This is crazy. He should be dancing with you.
Angie: No, sweetheart, I insisted. There is a bigger picture here, and we all fit in somewhere.
Jack: Erica, if they want to have a wedding with Bianca and Reese, guess what? That is none of my business, nor is it your business.
Erica: But, Jack, I mean, first of all, it's crazy. And second, I mean --
Carmen: What are you doing, Jackie? I've been waiting for you.
Jack: Well, I --
Erica: Well, he's having a conversation with me.
Carmen: I'll just be by the bar, then.
Jack: Excuse me.
Erica: Well, Jack, wait. We -- we haven't finished.
Jack: Yes, in fact, we have. Carmen. Carmen, Carmen, Carmen -- hang on. What's going on? What's wrong?
Carmen: What's wrong?
Carmen: Ever since we got here, you dumped me off at the tables, and you've been talking to everyone but me.
Jack: There's a lot going on here tonight, and it's kind of -- you know, it's kind of complex.
Carmen: No, actually it's really simple. You're still in love with Erica, Jack. You can't get enough of her.
Jack: Now you're just being silly.
Jack: Whoa -- and loud. Could you hold it down, and we'll do this in a more --
Carmen: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to embarrass you. Why don't I just spare your reputation and just leave, ok?
Erica: Oh, Jack, I'm so sorry. I just couldn't help but overhear. I mean, she's certainly keeps the volume on max. Sorry.
Jack: Erica, butt out.
Zach: If I may -- excuse me, please -- have everyone's attention for a second, please? Grab a glass of champagne. Hi. I want to just take a moment to thank everyone for coming out tonight to celebrate the reopening of our casino. This -- this place always had that very special place in my heart and my wife Kendall's heart. Um, and I know that she would share my gratitude if she were here tonight, so here's to loved ones who couldn't make it, um, to new unions, new friends, and to a new start. Cheers.
[Knocking at door]
David: I was worried about you.
Krystal: You should be. I'm worried about me, too.
David: You didn't mean what you were saying about Tad.
Krystal: But I did. I'm glad Tad's alive, but the thought of him coming back here, trying to make things the way they were, just scares the hell out of me.
Krystal: Because it just makes me -- it makes me feel trapped and forces me to realize the damn truth.
David: Which is?
Krystal: I never really loved Tad enough. I never, never loved him the way that I should. I know Tad loves me. And I -- I've tried. I've tried to love him the way that he deserves, but -- I mean, the truth is we've always been best friends more than great lovers. And we tried to make it work for Jenny and Kathy. But it's not the same. It's just -- it's not the same as it is when I've been with you. And he's going to know. I mean, he's going to come home, and he's going to know. The minute he walks through that door, he is going to know.
David: He'll only know if you tell him.
Krystal: Well, maybe I should. Maybe I need to tell him.
Angie: It's been a great night all around. Rebecca's enjoying herself. Tad's been found and coming home. And I just keep falling more and more in love with you.
Jesse: What was that mess between Opal and Krystal?
Angie: She thinks Krystal is cheating on Tad. And I'm afraid it might be true. Oh, gosh, Jesse, I caught Krystal and David Hayward kissing.
Jesse: No, you didn't.
Angie: Look, she is in such a bad place right now. And David, he's like some shark who smells blood. Even if -- I don't know how far things have gone, but I'm just glad that Tad is on his way home. Listen, sweetie, I'm running late. I love you.
Jesse: I love you, baby.
[Knock at door]
Scarlet: Whoo, Pete! You left me there. Why?
Pete: I, uh...
Scarlet: You silly. Don't you remember? You paid for the whole night.
J.R.: What would Babe think about me now?
Amanda: She'd be angry at you for drinking, but she'd still love you.
J.R.: Yeah. Babe used to say I couldn't see my son if I'd been drinking, but... Hayward was right. I don't deserve him. I don't deserve Babe's son.
Scarlet: Don't be nervous. I won't bite. But it is included in the price.
Pete: I, um -- I appreciate you trying to do your job, but I --
Scarlet: You don't like me?
Pete: I just can't.
Pete: You're not Colby.
Scarlet: The one you were trying to make jealous at the party. That didn't work, huh?
Pete: No, no, it didn't. But it did make one thing clear. I'm never giving up. I'm going to spend the rest of my life loving her.
Adam: I let him down.
Colby: How can you say that? You've been trying so hard.
Adam: No, no, I haven't. I can't -- I just -- I can't let J.R. get sucked in again. I will not let it happen. I'm not going to let Amanda Dillon take him down.
J.R.: Why do you keep doing this? Hmm? Why do you keep taking me in? Maybe you should get some smarts and just walk away.
Amanda: I care about you.
J.R.: Hey, come here.
Amanda: You know, you can sleep on the couch. You're going to feel like hell in the morning.
J.R.: I don't care about the morning. And I'm not going to sleep on that couch without you.
Amanda: J.R., I don't think that --
Doctor: Dr. Hubbard, you may want to take a look at these.
Angie: Rebecca Fowler's MRI.
Angie: This from today?
Angie: What's the bottom line?
Doctor: Ah, well, it's pretty amazing, actually. After only one treatment, the tumor appears to have stabilized. This lady may actually have a chance.
Bianca: Are you sure you're ok with this whole double wedding thing?
Reese: Yeah, it'll be great. It's just not fair. Their wedding is going to be legal and ours is just going to be symbolic until we say our vows in another state.
Bianca: Well, I'll love you just the same.
Reese: I know. But you know what I mean.
Bianca: I do.
Greenlee: I'm sorry.
Ryan: For what?
Greenlee: For all the crazy talk. Opal just pushed some buttons, that's all. I don't think our wedding is doomed. It's going to be perfect, just like the rest of our lives.
Erica: Well, you really should be out here dancing with Kendall.
Zach: Yeah, well, that's ok. I'm all right.
Erica: It's all falling apart. I have one daughter who's fighting for her life. My other daughter really is very, very angry at me, because she thinks I'm interfering.
Zach: She's not angry with you. She just wants to live her life with whom she's in love with. And Reese loves Bianca the same way that I love Kendall. Look at them. It's ok to admit you're wrong, you know.
David: All right, look. You're working yourself up. You don't mean what you're saying, ok? You're just in shock because of the news --
Krystal: You know, don't -- don't tell me how I feel. If there's one thing that I learned from Babe's death, it's to listen to how I feel and to stop pretending --
Krystal: That everything is ok when it is not ok.
David: Ok, ok, I'm sorry, all right. Look, why don't I get you some milk? We'll calm you down.
Krystal: No, I don't -- I don't want any of your milk. I don't want any more of your drugs. I want you to get out. Ok, get out. Get out of my house. Get out of Tad's house. Get out of my life. Get out of my mind!
