David: Get these freakin' ropes off me.
J.R.: Uh-uh, not until you own up. You're after my son, and you're willing to do anything to get him. Now, does Krystal know that you're using her to get to him?
David: You got to be kidding me. Using?
David: I care about Krystal. We share a bond.
J.R.: Oh, right, the, um -- that daughter bond. How could I forget?
David: Tell me, is this you babbling or the bottle of scotch you just guzzled?
J.R.: Yeah, that's another big win for you, me off the wagon, couldn't have gone more perfectly if you planned it.
David: Ah, boy, it certainly didn't take that long, now, did it? Hmm. So tell me, Junior, what pushed you over the edge this time, huh? The holidays?
David: Or maybe it was the fact that you're sleeping with Babe's best friend. Oh, now that's a classy way to honor your dead wife, right?
J.R.: Shut up!
David's voice: I'm not home. Leave a message.
[Answering machine beeps]
Krystal: David? It's me, Krystal. Are you there? Listen, I really need to talk to you. I'm -- I'm sorry for the way I acted -- I -- throwing that locket at you, it -- it was a beautiful gift. Well, just call me, ok, soon as you can?
J.R.: Oh, boy, you ran all of that, didn't you? Huh. You son of a -- you confess, damn it, or I swear to God, I'm going to kill you.
Taylor: Wait -- don't -- don't -- don't go.
Brot: Have you been faking this all along?
Taylor: Let me explain.
Brot: How could you do this?
Taylor: How could I not?
Ryan: Are you saying that you want to test them? Because that's a really, really bad idea.
Bianca: I -- I never used the word "test."
Ryan: No, you didn't need to.
Bianca: All right, I'm -- I'm a little paranoid, I guess. I -- it's not like this hasn't happened to me before.
Ryan: What? What hasn't happened?
Bianca: A woman leaving me for a man?
Ryan: Ok, I -- I get where this is coming from, I do. But I also think that you're getting a little bit ahead of yourself here.
Bianca: Ok, what if I'm not? What if Reese and Zach are -- I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but you've never done this before? You never set someone up just a little bit just to get to the truth?
Ryan: No, I haven't -- I mean, I almost did with Annie when I wanted to find out how far gone she was, but in the end, I couldn't do it.
Bianca: And after everything that's happened, can you honestly tell me that you don't regret that?
Zach: Am I interrupting something?
Reese: No. No, not at all.
Zach: So, what's the problem?
Reese: What problem?
Zach: The one that Greenlee doesn't know how to solve, that problem.
Reese: It --
Greenlee: Oh, that. We're just trying to figure out where to have the wedding.
Zach: Oh, so the casino's out.
Reese: Yeah, yeah, it turns out Bianca's not much into the idea.
Zach: Really? Was she upset over it? Did she say something, not say something? What happened?
Reese: Yeah, no, she -- she did. She got upset and she -- you know, I thought this was all supposed to be fun. You know? Planning the wedding, the ceremony, our future -- I -- I don't know. What happened? I don't know how it got this way.
Zach: Can I say something?
Zach: You guys, you could get hitched in a locker room, and I would still think it'd be great. It's all going to work out.
Reese: Are you sure about that?
Zach: Would I lie to you? Come here. Come on.
[Zach and Reese hug]
Ryan: Bianca, you can't go into a marriage with this between you.
Bianca: That's why I want to put an end to all of this.
Ryan: By going behind her back?
Bianca: I'm not trying to prove that Reese is doing something wrong. I'm trying to prove she's not.
Zach: You all right?
Reese: Yeah, I'm great. I just, you know, um -- I got to go.
Zach: Did I miss something?
Greenlee: Just typical prewedding drama. I just thought between the four of us, that would be Ryan's and my department.
Zach: Yeah, me, too. Wow.
Greenlee: So, what's it like at home these days?
Zach: It's fine.
Greenlee: But with Reese and Bianca -- I mean, how do you fit into all this? It's not your typical living situation.
Zach: We're working it out. The little girl's pretty cool.
Greenlee: Yeah, you really love that little girl. But still, I mean, having them around must not always be so easy.
Zach: Hey, Greenlee --
Zach: What are you trying to say?
Taylor: Tell me you weren't going to walk out that door as soon as you found out I could walk on my own. I had to do something.
Brot: So lying was your answer, right?
Taylor: I just thought that if we could have some more time together, I could get you to trust me.
Brot: I can't believe you're healed.
Taylor: I am nowhere near healed, and neither are you. Neither one of us will be healed, Brot, until we -- till we can see if we can get this thing back.
Brot: How many times do I have to tell you? That's not possible.
Taylor: But it's started already. Come on. This is as close as I have felt to you since --
Brot: Since what? Since I've come home looking like this?
Taylor: That's not what I meant.
Brot: What you felt was a lie. Taylor -- you set me up.
Taylor: Don't -- don't. Brot, you walk out that door, you don't get to walk back in.
Krystal: Yes, that's right. David Hayward, I'm a patient of his, and I really need to find him.
Opal: Oh, no, you don't.
Krystal: Opal, what are you doing?
Opal: I know exactly what is going on around here, and I intend to put a stop to it.
Krystal: All right, you're reading way too much into this.
Opal: My son -- your husband, and the father of your little baby girl -- was missing in a jungle, but instead of worrying about him, you have been off gallivanting with Dr. Evil Incarnate.
Krystal: I have not been gallivanting --
Opal: And I refuse to stand by and watch you ruin Jenny's life or Tad's.
Krystal: Opal, for the last time, there's nothing going on between David and me.
Opal: That is a pile of horse manure, and I do not need tea leaves or tarot cards to know it.
David: It's Christmas. So I gave Krystal a present. How thoughtless of me.
J.R.: Yeah, a present, huh? More like baiting a trap, huh?
David: Krystal and I created Babe and then we lost her. I mean, look at you, all worried that I'm going to take Little A? What if you were really gone, J.R.? Huh?
J.R.: Shut your mouth.
David: What if your son were gone for good? That's where I am! That's where Krystal is, in a hole so deep, we may never get out. So if I want to share a picture or a memory or a story about our daughter, I'm damn well going to do it!
J.R.: A story, a memory -- you didn't even know her, man! Most of her life, she was a complete stranger to you.
David: She was my daughter! And, no, I wasn't there, but I was going to make it up to her, and we had the time until you took it away! Yeah, that's right. That's right, you want to talk about guilt, huh? All those things that eat you alive? Why don't we talk about that?
J.R.: I said stop!
David: You killed her, J.R.! Your daddy rang his bell, and you came running, like Pavlov's slobbering dog.
J.R.: Shut up!
David: I'll tell you something, you want me to own up, huh? You want me to confess my sins? Fine, but you're going to have to go first!
J.R.: Yeah -- yeah?
David: What are you going to do, Junior, hmm? Go ahead, I dare you.
Krystal: You know, I really don't like you insinuating that I'm having an affair with David.
Opal: Well, you sure looked like his date at the casino last night, and then I get here, you're sniffing after him like some bloodhound.
Krystal: He was not my date, all right? He's just -- he's been helping me.
Opal: Oh, helping you.
Krystal: With these, all right? Plans for something I'm thinking about building on The Comeback site. I don't know anything about blueprints, and I asked for David's advice.
Opal: The man's a surgeon. He's not an architect.
Krystal: I know that, Opal, but with Tad out of town --
Opal: What, you had nobody else you could turn to? Oh, come on, Krystal, you got family and friends up the wazoo.
Krystal: Do I?
Krystal: That would be nice. Friends who don't judge me and friends who --
Opal: I'm sorry. I get it, Krystal, I really do. The man was Babe's father, and he's hurting, too, and it's only natural that you would want to be around him. But it's high time that you admit it.
Opal: Fine what?
Krystal: I am drawn to David. And I just -- I don't know what to do about it.
David: What's the matter, Junior, don't have it in you? It's all right, I won't tell anyone. All right, come on, let's stop this game. Untie these ropes, and you can go on your drunken, slobbering way.
J.R.: I'm not through with you yet.
David: If you're waiting for some grand confession, we're going to be here for a very long time. Because this conspiracy theory of yours? It's all in your head. I have no designs on Little Adam, certainly none on you. And as for Krystal, well --
David: Oh, great.
David: I knew you were going to need a fix sooner than later.
J.R.: This is some good stuff here, hmm?
David: Yeah, it is, and I'm not planning on wasting it on you.
J.R.: I'm not really giving you a choice. Where's your corkscrew?
David: Sorry, must be fresh out. But you know what I do have, I got a whole bottle of rubbing alcohol right back there in the bathroom. You feel free to drink that to your heart's discontent. Cold. Colder.
David: Oh, and now you're just plain freezing.
J.R.: Really? Because I think I just hit the mother lode. And this baby feels pretty warm to me.
[J.R. holds up a handgun]
Brot: Say we do this, say I finally let you in. Then what?
Taylor: What do you mean?
Brot: You were so focused on getting me to stay, getting me to open up, what if I finally do, and you don't like what you see?
Taylor: I wouldn't. That would never happen.
Brot: You don't know that. The truth is, Taylor, I don't want to disappoint you.
Taylor: Brot, that's crazy. I love you.
Brot: Not me, at least not who I am now. I'm afraid if I -- if I give that to you, all you're going to do is just get up and walk out.
Taylor: So you want to be the one to leave first?
Brot: Don't say it. I already know I'm a coward.
Taylor: I wasn't going to say that. Could you -- could you come here, please, just here?
Taylor: I -- I don't know how to make this easier for you. But I do know this -- I never stopped loving you, not when I thought you died, not when you came back, and certainly not now.
Brot: You want me to say the same thing. I don't know if I can.
Greenlee: I'm not trying to say anything.
Zach: Not successfully, no.
Greenlee: Ok, what I'm trying to say is, I think it's great.
Zach: What's great?
Greenlee: That it's working out. Well, with the casino and Kendall and everything else that's going on, it could be a recipe for disaster, but instead of imploding, you guys really pulled it together. I think it's sweet, the three of you -- or four, if you include Gabby. Is there any water around here? Hey, there you are.
Bianca: Where's Reese?
Zach: She left.
Bianca: She was mad, wasn't she?
Zach: I don't know if she was mad or not. I don't think so. She just left, that's all.
Greenlee: Hey, you know what? It's a wedding. I'm sure Reese is just wanting the perfect one.
Bianca: You know, um -- the fact is I -- I -- I just didn't really want to get married here.
Ryan: Well, if we're kind of putting it all out there --
Greenlee: Neither did we.
Bianca: Really? So you guys are ok with going back to the drawing board?
Greenlee: Yep, doesn't matter. As long as you show up, I'm good.
Ryan: Yeah, you don't have to worry about that. Going to send me an invitation?
[Greenlee and Ryan chuckle]
Bianca: Well, I guess I should go find Reese. I'll see you guys later.
Zach: Ok. I'm going to check on these guys.
Ryan and Greenlee: No!
Taylor: Ok, so you can't tell me that you love me. Well, I know you do because I can feel it. When we danced, I could feel it.
Brot: A dance isn't the same. A dance -- it -- it feels safe to me.
Taylor: Why? Why, because you don't have to look at me? I don't see you looking away now.
Brot: Don't do this. You -- you just don't understand.
Taylor: I do. Believe me, I do.
Brot: You -- just take it easy, ok? Just -- just have a seat.
Taylor: I will, ok, on one condition -- will you just sit next to me? Not across the room, not by the nearest exit. Will you just sit down on the couch next to me? I know you're scared. I'm scared, too. It's been a long time since -- it's just been a long time. But I'm safe. I promise. Brot, please. My God. I have really missed you.
Krystal: I'm sorry. Every -- ever since Babe died, I have just -- I've been walking around in the dark, you know, not a sliver of light or hope or joy anywhere.
Opal: Except if you're with David Hayward.
Krystal: He gives me some relief, and I know -- I know I should be trying to find that with my husband and with my girls -- I know that. Maybe if Tad hadn't -- hadn't left.
Opal: Oh, don't go blaming this on him.
Krystal: I'm not, I'm not, Opal. I know he had no choice. He had to leave. But Christmas came and went and now it's a new year and everything just -- it -- it just feels the same -- I don't --
Opal: But David Hayward. Come on, you know what that man is capable of.
Krystal: I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. You don't think I've been trying to fight this?
Krystal: David is -- he's the only one who lets me feel what I need to feel, when I need to feel it. He's the only one who, honest to God, understands what I am going through and how -- how this anxiety just -- it takes over.
Opal: You've been having attacks?
Krystal: Yes, lots of them. And without David there to calm me down, I --
Opal: Calm you down?
Krystal: Not -- not like that, Opal. It just -- he's been giving me this anxiety -- anti-anxiety medication.
Opal: Medication? What kind? How much?
Krystal: I don't know. You know, he gives it to me, and I take it. He's a doctor.
Opal: He's drugging you.
Krystal: It's not like that, Opal. He's really just trying to help me. What is that? Hmm? Did Kathy leave something over at your house?
Opal: No, that's mine. I'm -- I'm moving in for awhile. Somebody's got to look out for you, Krystal, help you to stay away from David Hayward. And since Tad isn't around, the job falls to me. That's right. So if you want out of here, you got to pass through me first.
Zach: What was that? Why can't I check on Reese and Bianca?
Ryan: I -- I just -- I -- it's probably better just to let them figure it out on their own.
Greenlee: Whatever they're dealing with, it's about way more than the wedding.
Zach: Did Reese say something or Bianca say something?
Greenlee: No, no, no, I just got that feeling. I mean, we've all been there. It's not like you and Kendall haven't had your issues. And would you really want a million outside opinions when you're trying to figure those things out?
Zach: Those opinions usually come from you.
Greenlee: Yes, but not anymore, right?
Ryan: Yeah, right, right, absolutely. Yeah, it's just probably better to leave this all alone.
Greenlee: They love each other, and they love their daughter.
Zach: Yeah? I know that better than anyone.
Greenlee: Well, then you also know that they'll work it out.
Zach: Without my interference.
Greenlee: Without your interference.
David: So tell me, Junior, what are you planning to do with my big, old nasty confession, huh? Go to the police? Or maybe you're planning on playing this closer to home, right?
David: Have you even looked at yourself in the mirror lately? I mean, come on, let's be honest here. Who's going to take anything you have to say seriously?
J.R.: Just because I've had a few drinks.
David: Oh, a few? You're kidding, right? You've been drinking for two solid days. You're a sniveling, slobbering mess who has no right raising a child. I mean, come on, let's face it, Junior, huh? You're no good for Little A, just like you were no good for Babe. Her life was ruined way before that tornado hit down.
J.R.: Babe was happy.
David: Oh, yeah, right, sure. Yeah, she had a few smiles before she was wiped off the face of the earth. But what about before that, huh? What about the rest? The months, the years? You made her life a living hell, and you know it.
J.R.: Shut up! Shut up, shut up, shut up!
[J.R. shoots at the ceiling]
David: Feeling better? I'm guessing not really. Because no matter what you do, or where you try to hide, your guilt will always be there as a reminder, Junior, that while Babe was here, you could have been so much better. So is that on you, or on God, that she was taken so soon? I guess we'll never know.
Krystal: David, where have you been?
J.R.: Krystal, it's J.R.
Krystal: What -- what are you doing calling from David's place?
J.R.: I -- I think you should come over here to Wildwind. I got something I want to show you.
Krystal: What do you mean? What's going on?
J.R.: Just get in your car and drive.
Opal: Here you go.
Krystal: What's this?
Opal: Warm milk. It does wonders for me when I need to relax.
J.R.'s voice: You might want to get over here to Wildwind. I got something I want to show you.
J.R.'s voice echoes: Wildwind.
Opal: You feel better?
Krystal: Hmm, yeah. Thanks. So, what do we do now?
Opal: Well, laundry.
Opal: Mm-hmm, yep. I brought over a huge sack of laundry. It's in the car. We're going to sit here, and we're going to fold it and sort it and match up socks till we're blue in the face. Anything to keep your mind off you-know-who. But you can't say one word about Petey's superhero jammies. He gets embarrassed.
Krystal: My lips are sealed.
Opal: So are mine. Tad's going to be coming home. He's going be tired, he's going to be weak, and he's going to need you to take care of him. You're going to be here to take care of him?
Krystal: Of course.
Opal: Then I won't say a word about this. But you got to promise me something, Krystal. Stay away from David. Otherwise, all bets are off.
[As Krystal nods, Jenny cries]
Opal: Sounds like somebody else wants to join the party. I'll go get her.
Krystal: Thank you.
Taylor: You are as gorgeous as you ever were.
Brot: Don't say that.
Taylor: It's the truth. It's my truth. You can't take it away from me.
Brot: I -- I know what I see when I look in the mirror.
Taylor: But you have absolutely no idea what I see. I see you.
Brot: Don't you get it, Taylor? When people look at me, I feel like some freak.
Taylor: Do I make you feel that way? Hey, Brot, this is me looking at you. How do you feel?
Brot: I don't know.
Taylor: Do you feel like a freak?
Brot: No, I feel like I used to feel.
Brot: But that -- that doesn't change anything.
Taylor: How can you say that?
Brot: Because the minute I walk out of that door, everything changes. The gasps, the stares.
Taylor: So stay in here with me. And when you go out, we'll go out together. And we won't care if people stare, or if they look away really quickly. We don't know them, and they don't know us. They don't matter.
Brot: Maybe they don't matter to you.
Taylor: They don't matter to us, because in this moment, that's all there is. Right here, right now is just us.
Brot: I'm sorry. I'm just not there yet.
Taylor: It's ok.
Brot: I want to be. I do. I -- I just --
Taylor: It's ok. We'll take it as slow as you want.
Brot: Thank you.
Krystal: J.R., what's -- what's going on? Why did you call me over here?
J.R.: It's nice to see you, too.
Krystal: You're drunk.
David: You think?
Krystal: David? Do I even want to know? Oh, my God. What the hell is that? Are those bullet holes?
David: Yep. Junior here's been using me for target practice. Lucky for me his aim stinks.
J.R.: Trust me, if I wanted you dead, I would have ended you.
Krystal: J.R., look, this has gone on far enough. Now, you just -- you untie him.
J.R.: Aw, you're going to save your boyfriend. That's sweet.
Krystal: J.R., I don't care who David is. You have tied a person to a piano. Obviously you're not thinking clearly.
J.R.: I know exactly what I'm doing. Tell her.
Krystal: Tell me what?
J.R.: David's got a confession for you. And I think you might want to hear it.
Ryan: So you've known this entire time that Zach was Gabby's biological father.
Greenlee: Yeah, but I didn't say anything, because he asked me not to.
Ryan: Because they want to be the first ones to tell Kendall.
Greenlee: Can you blame them? Imagine if she heard that from someone else.
Ryan: Kendall should have been told a long time ago.
Greenlee: It's unreal, isn't it? Zach is the father of another woman's child. Like that wasn't complicated enough.
Ryan: And now Bianca is convinced there's something going on between him and Reese.
Greenlee: How'd you leave it with her? What's she going to do?
Ryan: I don't know what she's going to do. She didn't say, exactly, but I have a feeling that she's going to take care of it.
Greenlee: What does that mean? Take care of it how?
Bianca: I'm sorry about what happened. I should have just talked to you instead of flipping out like I did.
Reese: It's ok. But while we're on the subject, what happened?
Bianca: I guess I just didn't want to get married at the casino.
Reese: Ok, so why didn't you just say something?
Bianca: I don't know. You and Zach were so into the idea and --
Reese: Zach and I aren't the ones who are getting married. We are.
Bianca: I want a wedding. A real one, not just some commitment ceremony.
Reese: Good. What were you thinking?
Bianca: I was thinking that you're right. We should go check out places in Connecticut and see what they have available. I mean, when we do this, I want it to be official, not just, you know, a warm-up for the real thing.
Reese: Yeah, that sounds perfect.
Bianca: Great. So you'll come with me?
Reese: Yeah, I will. What -- when? Now?
Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, I've already done all this research. I -- I found this adorable little inn by the water in a town called Essex. It's supposed to be beautiful.
Reese: I -- oh, God, I would love to go, but, honey, I don't know if I can. I've got -- I've got The Comeback meetings tomorrow. I've got a zoning and permit meetings, I've got the casino stuff I need to deal with. We've still got some wiring issues I need to handle, and -- how about next week? Can it wait?
Bianca: No, you know what? I'll go alone.
Reese: What? No! No, I want to see this place you're talking about.
Bianca: Yeah, of course, and you will, but, you know, there's no reason that I shouldn't just go and check it out, and I'll report back to you completely, I swear.
Reese: Are you sure?
Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, of course, I'm sure. I'm the one leaving you with the kids. You think you and Zach can handle it?
Zach: Handle what?
Bianca: Nothing. Just some babysitting. I'm going to go pack.
Zach: What's that about?
Reese: I have no idea.
Brot: There's something I need to say to you. Taylor, I just --
Taylor: Brot, don't. No more words. No explanations. Can we just be here like this? Ok?
Opal: Jenny-penny, talking to your mama is like talking to a fence post. Krystal, it's Opal. I don't know where you've run off to. At least, I hope I don't. But if you are where I think you are, just let me remind you that nothing good can come of it.
J.R.: David's working you, Krystal, to get Little Adam.
David: Oh, please, not again.
J.R.: It's what he's been after the entire time -- my son.
Krystal: Wait, wait, wait a minute. What do you mean, "working" me? I don't have anything to do with this.
J.R.: Oh, the hell you don't. You've been hanging out with him constantly. Yes, he wants your trust, so he can steal my kid.
David: Your logic is just plain moronic.
J.R.: Admit it. Come on, admit it to her face.
Krystal: All right, stop it. David doesn't have to admit anything, because I know it isn't true.
Greenlee: You're lying.
Ryan: No, actually, I'm not lying.
Greenlee: Bianca wants to test Reese.
Ryan: No. No testing. She was very adamant about not using the word "test."
Greenlee: Whatever. Basically, the same idea.
Ryan: Yeah, basically that's what she's doing.
Greenlee: This is such a bad move. You remember what happened when Aidan bugged my earring. It was the beginning of the end for us.
Reese: I don't know, maybe I should just go with Bianca.
Zach: Yeah, if you want to go, go. I'll handle things at the casino.
Reese: At the casino, yeah, but what about The Comeback site? Krystal has been so distracted lately. Getting her to pin down a meeting has been almost impossible. I am afraid if I postpone it, we're never going to get it done.
Zach: Well, then you should stay. I'm sure Bianca will understand.
Reese: I really get the feeling she wanted me to go with her. What do you think I should do?
Zach: What do you care what I think? What's in your gut?
Reese: My gut says to stay.
Zach: Then you should stay.
