Colby: Sorry to crash in on you like this.
Pete: No, no, no, it's great. I mean, yeah, I'm busy, crazy busy, but I can spare a few.
Colby: What are you doing?
Pete: Boosting my gigs.
Colby: I'm not interrupting plans with your girlfriend, am I?
Pete: My girlfriend?
Colby: The girl you took to the casino opening?
Colby: You're dating, right?
Pete: It's complicated.
Colby: Oh. I was kind of hoping you were.
Colby: It would mean that you're over the whole crush thing, and we could be friends. And I need a friend.
Pete: You're in luck. My girlfriend's busy tonight. Definitely busy.
Colby: So you have time to talk?
Pete: What are friends for?
David plays the piano]
David: Good evening, Amanda.
Amanda: How did you know it was me?
David: Your perfume. Very particular.
Amanda: Cut it out. Tell me what the hell you've done to J.R.
Tad: J.R., you don't have to tell me where Krystal's been. I know.
J.R.: Damn, Krystal, looks like the party's over.
Krystal: Don't listen to him, Tad. He has been drinking. You know, Babe would be ashamed of you, J.R.
J.R.: Really? What would Babe think about you?
Krystal: This is crazy talk. All I've wanted is for you to be home, Tad. I have been so worried.
Tad: Really? Is that what you were the entire time you were with David? Pining for me to come back?
Krystal: Whatever Opal told you, she's wrong.
Tad: Opal? What does Opal got to do with it? What, does everyone in Pine Valley know?
Krystal: There's nothing to know.
J.R.: Oh, come on. Don't be modest. Hayward and her are the hottest couple in town.
Krystal: Ok, that's enough, J.R.
J.R.: You're missing in action, and Krystal here is partying down.
Krystal: That is not true.
J.R.: Oh, come on. Admit it, Krystal. You're sleeping with Hayward.
J.R.: You should've seen them at the casino opening. They couldn't stay away from each other.
Tad: That's enough, J.R.
J.R.: No, don't get me wrong. I'm sure she was missing you, but Hayward grabbed it as -- as his ticket in.
Tad: You know what? It's time for you to go.
J.R.: You're not really surprised, are you? You asked me to keep an eye on her. I did my best.
Tad: You did your best. From the bottom of the bottle, you did your best.
J.R.: I asked Colby to help me. She saw -- she saw David playing daddy to your kids and husband to your wife.
Tad: All right, you know what? I really want you to go home right now.
J.R.: Tad, you -- you need to make her understand, ok? She -- he's only using her for one thing. He's trying to, you know, get my son.
Tad: Go home, J.R.
Colby: You saw J.R. at the party. He was totally out of control, the way he was dancing with your girlfriend.
Pete: Yeah. Scarlet had a little too much to drink, too.
Colby: This was not "too much to drink." This was J.R. back in full-on alcoholic mode. J.R.'s lost Babe. It's like he's on self-destruct. I don't know what to do, how to help.
Pete: You'll find a way. You're so strong and amazing and beautiful.
Colby: What are you doing?
Pete: You've been going through so much. I -- I just wanted to make you feel better.
Colby: That was not a "feel better" hug. What kind of boyfriend are you? Poor Scarlet.
Pete: Uh, about Scarlet. She's not my girlfriend. Never was, never will be.
Colby: But you said --
Pete: Yeah, I know what I said. Truth? I paid Scarlet to be my date.
Colby: A hooker?
Pete: A call girl. Because even with my contacts and my new clothes, you look at me, and all you see is a geek, a dweeb, an alpha nerd, so I hired Scarlet to make you jealous.
Reese: Look who woke up.
Zach: Somebody who should be sleeping.
Reese: Yes. Gosh. What a long, long day. We go from a double wedding at the casino to no wedding at the casino to a legal wedding in Connecticut.
Zach: Your fiancée wants everything to be perfect.
Reese: I want everything to be perfect, too. It just doesn't feel very perfect with Bianca away looking at places for us to get married by herself.
Zach: Well, cancel appointments and go meet her tomorrow.
Reese: Maybe she wanted to go by herself. Maybe she wanted to get away from me.
Zach: What kind of talk is that from a bride to be? Come on.
Reese: I don't know. It's just -- maybe she's not the only one with wedding jitters.
Reese: Oh, it's ok. I mean, she's driving at night. She shouldn't be driving at night. She doesn't like to, and hotel beds -- she's like "The Princess and the Pea."
Zach: So she's all tucked in already.
Reese: Maybe we should get you tucked in, too, hmm?
[Reese makes kissing noises]
Zach: All right, sweetie.
Reese: Give a little kiss to your uncle Zach.
Zach: Hey, get some rest, ok?
Reese: Yeah. Ok, ok. All right, I know. Let's get you upstairs. Ok, ok.
Zach: Hello? Wh -- what do you mean? She -- is she ok? What happened? On my way. Um --
Reese: Hey, was it Bianca?
Zach: Bianca was in an accident.
Reese: What? Is -- is she ok? Wh -- where is she?
Zach: She's right here at Pine Valley Hospital.
Amanda: David, where is J.R.? What did you do to him?
David: Why do you care, hmm? You got paid. Why don't you go buy something?
Amanda: There is blood on my yacht.
David: Yeah, no kidding. Mine. You want to feel my bruise?
Amanda: Oh, come on. David, please just tell me, all right? Was J.R. here? What happened? Where did he go?
David: You don't ever have to worry about poor, defenseless J.R. ever again. I had every right to defend myself.
Amanda: What the hell does that mean?
[David points to a gun]
Amanda: Oh, my God. You didn't. It's still warm, David. Please tell me that you didn't. Tell me that you did not kill J.R.
David: You know, if I didn't know better, I would think that you're hooked on the guy.
David: Relax. J.R.'s the one who pulled the trigger, all right?
Amanda: So -- so he's ok? He's alive?
David: As alive as any other pathetic, booze-swelling loser can be.
Amanda: Oh, God. You're -- you ass! Why did you let me think he was dead?
David: This is a very difficult part here. So excuse me.
Zach: Hey. Bianca Montgomery, she was admitted tonight.
Woman: You'll have to check.
Reese: Hey. Hey, sweetie. Hey -- are you ok?
Zach: Hey, you all right?
Bianca: No, no, no, I'm fine.
Reese: What happened?
Bianca: I'm fine. I -- I went off the road.
Reese: Well, thank God you're ok.
Zach: And you were this close. We -- we thought you were in Connecticut.
Reese: Yeah, honey, you left hours ago.
Bianca: I didn't.
Reese: Wh -- I don't understand.
Bianca: Our wedding. Once in a lifetime. Meetings can be canceled, postponed, but you chose to stay with Zach.
Reese: I didn't -- didn't choose to stay with Zach. I -- you set me up?
Bianca: I gave you a choice.
Reese: Oh, really? Ok, um, were you planning on going to Connecticut or was -- this was all a test.
Bianca: I had to know.
Reese: You had to know what? Oh. This is all about Erica, isn't it? Isn't it? She put it in your head that something's going on between me and Zach, and come on. Bianca, you know how much I love you. How can you believe her?
Bianca: I didn't want to believe her. I convinced myself that I was being an idiot, so I got in my car, and I came back home, and I saw you.
Reese: You -- you saw me. You saw -- you saw what?
Bianca: In each other's arms, standing so close, so intimate. I saw it. So what? You're in love?
Krystal: J.R. is out of his mind on alcohol. He has blown this way out of proportion.
Tad: Respect me enough to give me the truth. Have you been sleeping with David? Krystal, answer me.
Krystal: Tad, it's -- it's not like that, ok? David has been helping me.
Tad: Yeah, right into his bed.
Krystal: No, Tad. I have been in a really tough place. You were in Africa, and the girls, the holidays. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't move. David gave me some, I don't know, medication.
Tad: He gave you medication? He -- he drugged you into the sex? David raped you?
Tad: Well, then you're going to have to give me a whole lot more than that, huh.
Krystal: You weren't here. You were not here. I needed you, and you weren't here.
Tad: My son was missing. My brother was missing.
Krystal: I know. I know, and I have been out of my mind since Babe died, and David has -- he understands. He understands me.
Tad: And I don't? Well, maybe that's because every time I tried, every time that I begged you to help me and understand, you pushed me away. So what does this mean? Does it mean every single time you disappeared, and you took off, and I was worried that something had happened to you, that you were, what, in the sheets over at Wildwind?
Krystal: That's -- that's not true, Tad. Nothing happened until you --
Tad: Until I left town? Huh. Huh. So, I guess this is -- this is the part where you blame the drugs, right? I mean, you -- you claimed you got married to Adam when you were high on moonshine. I guess now you're telling me that you slept with David, because he was feeding you pills.
Krystal: I never meant to hurt you.
Tad: Well, it certainly worked out that way. And we were so close, so close. A safe, stable, loving home. That's what we both wanted, wasn't it? That's what both of us were in for, and not just for the girls, for you, so you would feel protected, because you still had feelings for Adam, and you couldn't -- those either.
Krystal: I never slept with Adam after we were married, Tad.
Tad: But you wanted to, didn't you? Anyway. It doesn't matter now. It's David. After all the times you looked me in the eye and promised me that this was enough, this home, this family, this life. What the hell is wrong with you? Why? Why would you give up all of this? You know what they're like. You know who they are. Why on earth would you chase after men like Adam or David?
Krystal: Because they make me feel alive! I'm sorry.
Tad: No, no, it's all right. I asked you for the truth.
Krystal: No, I -- I love you. I chose this life. It's made me happy, Tad, and I feel safe.
Tad: It doesn't make you feel alive.
Krystal: Babe died. I went into free fall, Tad, and I wanted to reach out and grab something, but I couldn't find anything, anything to hold on to.
Tad: I was here -- I was here the entire time.
Krystal: I know, Tad, I know, and you tried! You tried. You needed me. You needed me to be a wife and a mother, and I didn't want to be needed. I wanted to just not have to think, ok? And when I was with David, I didn't have to.
Tad: Because you were too busy.
Krystal: Because he understood.
Tad: He understood.
Tad: David Hayward. David Hayward understood. Ok, so he was there to hold your hand. He was there to -- he gave you a nice, warm shoulder to cry on. What else did he offer you? I want to hear you say it.
Krystal: All right, fine. I slept with David.
Tad: Well, I can't say I'm surprised. After all, you slept with me when you were married to Adam.
Krystal: You remember why? Greg Madden was dead. You thought you weren't going to be able to find Kathy, and you were dealing with the unimaginable. Your daughter was gone. That kind of stuff makes you do things you don't ordinarily do.
Tad: Well, I'm sorry I missed the point. You -- you gave me mercy sex, so that makes it all right to wrap your legs around David? How could you be so naive that you honestly think for one solitary second this is about him "understanding you," about David Hayward helping you?
Krystal: Listen, David is not using me to get to Little A.
Tad: No, Krystal. He's using you to get to me, because he knows exactly where to stick the knife. He knows how to do the most collateral damage because he's done it all before because he convinced Dixie that he loved her. He manipulated her away from me, and now he's taken you.
Krystal: He hasn't taken me, Tad.
Krystal: What are you doing?
Tad: Come over here.
Tad: Come on.
Amanda: Oh, thank God you're here. I have been so worried. Give me this.
J.R.: I'm just going to get another one.
Amanda: For now, for here, you won't.
J.R.: Why do you bother?
Amanda: If you don't get that, then the booze really does make you stupid.
J.R.: I can't go home. I can't let Little A see me like this.
Amanda: You can stay here as long as you need to. I saw David.
J.R.: Yeah? He tell you I tied him to the piano?
J.R.: I put bullets in his walls.
Amanda: Well, the wall will survive.
J.R.: Tad and Krystal won't.
Amanda: What did you do?
J.R.: I told Tad everything, that Krystal was sleeping with David. You know, she actually asked me to call her "Mom" once? You better duck. I'm dangerous.
Amanda: You're unhappy. You've had too much to drink. You're going to stay here and get some rest. You'll feel better in the morning, ok?
J.R.: No, I won't. Babe will still be dead, I'll still be a drunk, and my son will have a bad father. Maybe I should do everyone a favor and just throw myself overboard.
Amanda: Yeah. Yeah, maybe you should.
Colby: I thought we were done with the whole crush thing.
Pete: Crush? I -- I'm not 10.
Colby: What's so bad about being friends?
Pete: I love you, Colby.
Pete: You're smart and -- and funny and sweet.
Colby: I was a jerk to you for a long time.
Pete: But we connected. You know we did.
Colby: Totally, but not like that. You're like a brother.
Colby: Why is that such a bad thing?
Pete: I want more.
Colby: I should go.
Pete: Not yet.
Reese: Zach and I are not in love.
Zach: What's wrong with you? Whatever you saw you think you saw --
Bianca: What? Oh, I -- I didn't see it? I made it up?
Reese: Well, yeah, I mean --
Zach: Erica came by, and Reese was upset.
Bianca: So you were comforting her.
Reese: Oh, Bianca, this is ridiculous. This is absolutely ridiculous. You have to believe us.
Bianca: Like I believed you about your parents or that you just forgot to mention your ex-fiancé?
Zach: Hey, I'm going to go check on my wife.
Reese: Ok. This is absolutely crazy. Bianca, you know that I love you. What do you want me to do to prove it to you? You tell me, and I will do anything. I am the one who wanted to have a child with you. I am the one who proposed to you. I am the one who pursued you.
Bianca: Why? I mean, was it all just about rebelling? Were you running from your past?
Reese: Oh, my God, Bianca. What is going on? Why are you acting like this?
Bianca: I don't know you at all.
Reese: Oh, yes, you do. Yes, you do. I am the woman who loves you. I am the woman who built you a house, who gave you a ring, who committed herself to our daughters. I want more than anything to promise to you till death do us part. Ok. Ok, I'm not doing this. I love you. I absolutely love you, but I -- I cannot do this. I cannot spend the rest of my life being watched and being judged and tested by you. I -- I can't worry that anytime that I -- that I hug a man or a woman that I'm going to have to explain myself. Ok, now I don't even know what's worse, you accusing me of being in love with Zach or you just staring at me.
Bianca: I know what I saw.
Reese: No, you don't. You don't. So is the, uh, wedding off?
Bianca: I was wrong to test you, but I had to know.
Reese: Know what? Know what? That Erica was right? That I was just waiting for you to leave so I could sleep with Zach? Come on, Bianca, do you really think that I would do that? That Zach would do that?
Bianca: I don't know what to think anymore. I know that I can't trust you, and -- and it kills me.
Reese: How did we get here? Bianca. I know that we love each other. I know that that has not changed. I am sorry if I caused you to doubt me, because I kept things about my past from you, but don't you ever, ever doubt that I love you, and I am committed to you and spending our lives together with our children. I could have lost you tonight, sweetheart. This is --
Bianca: I'm -- I'm tired.
Reese: Ok, then you should get some sleep. I will, uh -- I'll see you in the morning, ok? I love you. I love you. Ok.
Zach: How is she?
Reese: Um, she's angry, and she's hurt.
Zach: I talked to her doctor. She's on pain medication. Let her sleep it off. Tomorrow, everything's going to be fine.
Reese: Yeah, everything can be just fine.
Amanda: Go ahead, do it. Throw yourself overboard. Come on, what are you waiting for? Me to stop you? Why should I? You think everyone's better off without you. Man up and jump. Just do it already.
J.R.: You see? You're even sick of me.
Amanda: I'm sick of you curled up with a bottle, crying about that your wife is dead and your life is over.
J.R.: I don't like drinking. I don't like what it does to me.
Amanda: Really? Because I think you do. It's much easier to get drunk, play victim to your disease, moan about what a bad dad you are to your son, what a disappointment you are to your daddy.
J.R.: And my friends.
Amanda: Huh, well, you got that right. Before you hit the booze, you could be a son of a bitch, but at least you had some spine. You fought for your dad's respect. You fought to protect your son. Now --
J.R.: Where has the fighting got me?
Amanda: Then drink up.
David: I've been expecting you.
Tad: I'll bet you have.
David: I guess I should welcome you home.
Krystal: Tell him, David. Would you explain to him about the medication? You had given me something, you know, to help me, and, you know, the holidays and Babe's death, and you and I -- nobody -- nobody really understood. And -- and I was weak. I was, and the drugs, I mean, it shouldn't have happened, but it did. Tell him.
David: I don't think Tad wants to hear all that.
Tad: I don't.
David: Tad doesn't want words. He doesn't want explanations. Tad wants -- what? Revenge, justice, good old-fashioned ass whooping?
Tad: I want you to get what you deserve.
Pete: The night I was struck by lightning, we connected.
Colby: I thought you were going to die.
Pete: It's more than that. You know it.
Colby: We had fun. I like hanging with you, even when you bring me dorky corsages and blast over the hospital PA that you love me.
Pete: I -- I know I've done some stupid stuff to get your attention, but I'm done with the games. I just want you to see me. See who I am. I thought if I changed the way I look, it would change the way you see me, but it didn't. So now I'm telling you I love you, and I may not have a clue who I am or where I'm going to end up, but I know what I want. I want you.
Bianca: Then how can you not be honest with me about something so important?
Reese: Because it's not important anymore.
Bianca: Then why did you tell Zach?
Bianca: I have this feeling that you and Reese are keeping something from me.
Zach: How would you think that? Come on, do the whole thing.
Reese: Oh, I have to do a little twirl.
Zach: Mm-hmm. Wow.
Reese: Give it up. Right here.
Reese: Word. Whoo.
Zach: Good arm for a girl.
Woman: Miss Montgomery? This was just delivered for you.
Reese's voice: Dear Bianca. Not so long ago, we were dreaming about our future, a life of family, friends, peace, and love. And somehow, it's all gone wrong, and I don't know how to make it right. All I do know is that I hate causing you pain, and so, I'm going back to Paris. Your happiness is all that I want, even if I can't be a part of it. Je t'aime. Reese.
Bianca: Oh, my God.
Amanda: Come on, finish it off. You can go slam on whoever's left on your short list.
J.R.: You're amazing.
Amanda: I'm tired.
[J.R. pours the liquor into a plant]
Amanda: Way to kill my plant.
J.R.: I'll buy you a new one.
Amanda: As if you'll remember that promise in the morning.
J.R.: No, no more drinking, no more blackouts, no more ripping people apart.
Amanda: You said that before.
J.R.: And I've lost count. But this time --
Amanda: Is different?
J.R.: Well, I won't know until I try, but I'm definitely going to try, because this whole victim gig is not working out for me anyway. I've got to be on my game if I'm going to give Little Adam the life that he needs, which means no more booze.
Amanda: Until next time.
J.R.: How about we start with this time? Make me some coffee?
David: Go ahead. Take a swing. That's why you're here, isn't it? To beat your chest for the little woman, show her the big, brave, strong man you are?
Tad: Actually, I was just kind of hoping we could skip to the part where you tell Krystal that you love her.
Krystal: Tad, what are you doing?
Tad: Trying to wrap things up.
David: You're a fool.
Tad: No, the only fool here is Krystal. You set her up, and she sailed right into it. She didn't even blink.
David: It's not our fault that you can't give your wife what she needs.
Tad: I know. He's right. We already discussed that, didn't we? She may be deluded enough to think that you understand her, but you and I both know the truth. The only reason you bedded my wife was so that you could hurt me, and now you want to use her to get Little Adam away from J.R., and, in fact, he's already drinking. Hell, you probably think you're halfway there.
Krystal: David would not do that.
Tad: Oh, it must be love. She's defending you.
David: All right, why don't you get the hell out?
Tad: No. We're still spinning this, and there's still something I'm still curious about. Let's say for the sake of argument, you win. You get custody of Little Adam, and you break J.R. He ends up drunk and homeless somewhere, sleeping on a park bench. What happens to her? Huh? What about Krystal? After all the help she's been to you, where does she end up? On the street? In Oak Haven or the cemetery?
Krystal: Tad, please.
Tad: He used you. He used you, and he's still using you. What's worse, he's using Babe, and you're letting him spit all over her grave.
David: Shut the hell up! Do you hear me? Keep your mouth shut!
[Tad stares into the barrel of David's gun]
Pete: Maybe the whole love thing freaks you out. I'm not afraid, Colby. If you'll believe that, just take a chance. Ah, I get you think that I'm a nerd. But you will never find anyone who loves you as much as I do.
Colby: Pete. I'm so sorry. You're so sweet. I care for you a lot, but friends, that's all we can be.
Pete: Then you need to leave and -- and not come back.
Pete: I can't be just friends. You know, you want someone to hang out with you, to be your buddy and to help you, and it won't be me.
Colby: But can't we --
Pete: No! I, um, I have to get back to my gigs.
Amanda: I didn't mean it, all that stuff I said.
J.R.: So if I would have thrown myself overboard, you would have given me a life preserver?
J.R.: This coffee sucks.
Amanda: You want some scotch instead?
J.R.: Hmm! No, I'm good.
Amanda: You can do it, J.R.
J.R.: Well, you know it helps to have someone believe in me.
Amanda: I do.
[Amanda and J.R. kiss]
Zach: What's wrong?
Reese: I can't do it, Zach. I can't.
Zach: Can't what?
Zach: Why would you leave? Of course, you're not leaving. Not at all.
Reese: I was going to go. I was going to go back to Paris, because I thought it would be best for Bianca, but I can't. I can't leave Gaby. I can't leave Miranda.
Zach: Bianca's upset, but she loves you.
Reese: I don't know about that.
Reese: But she certainly doesn't trust me.
Bianca: Yes, I do. I -- I've -- I've been such an idiot. I -- I love you. I trust you. I love our family. I -- can you ever forgive me?
Reese: Of course.
Krystal: David, put the gun down.
Tad: You're going to shoot me?
David: You going to tempt me?
Tad: I didn't think so. That's not your style. That's too messy, and you're too clever. You're more of a knife-in-the-back kind of guy.
David: As I said, get the hell out of my house.
Tad: What's with all the anger? Why are you so upset? You won. Krystal's all yours.
Tad: We all know whose bed you want to be in. I'm not going to beg her to stay.
David: What is this, some kind of a game you're playing?
Tad: Your game, our game, the same game we played years ago, only with different rules. You took Dixie from me. You're not going to take Krystal. I'm giving her to you.
Krystal: Tad, you don't --
Tad: He wants you.
Krystal: You don't mean that.
Tad: He understands you. And I don't.
David: Where are you going?
Krystal: I have -- I can't -- I can't stay here. I can't, no. I've got to figure this out, all right? I -- I -- I -- I've got to -- I've got to think.
David: Ok, then wait a minute, wait, wait. It's late, ok? You're not going anywhere. I'm going to get you some milk.
Krystal: No, I -- I don't -- I don't want it. I don't want -- I -- I don't want it.
