J.R.: What day is it?

Amanda: The day that you're massively hung over again.

J.R.: The custody hearing. Tad's fighting to keep Jenny. I've got to go.

Amanda: J.R., at least take a shower first.

J.R.: There's no time.

Tad: Look, I didn't say it was going to be easy.

Livia: Trying to take a child away from her mother? Try impossible.

Tad: I guess it's a good thing I have a fantastic lawyer.

Livia: Do you really believe that Krystal would harm her own child?

Tad: No, never intentionally. But it's not worth the risk, now that she's been brainwashed by David.

Livia: Are you just being a scorned lover? Because this is harsh. She just lost Babe.

Tad: Which means her judgment is all the more impaired. Look, she can shack up with the devil himself if she wants to. But I am not going to let Jenny anywhere near Hayward.

Adam: If you hadn't left Krystal to fend off Hayward alone, none of this would be happening.

Krystal: David.

David: Hey.

Krystal: Tell me you're coming to the hearing.

David: Of course, I am.

Krystal: Listen, I spent all morning with your lawyer friend, and Tad won't budge. Let me tell you, the things he said to our friends and his family. What if the worst happens? What if I lose Jenny?

David: That little girl is your daughter. No one is going to take her away from you. I won't let them.

Aidan: Annie, are you there? The nurse is gone.

Annie: Are you going to help me get out of here now?

Aidan: Not yet. We have to take it one step at a time, starting with Dr. Sinclair.

Annie: I don't like her.

Aidan: I know. But the next time you see her, you can't get upset like you did before. You have to show her that you're getting better.

Annie: How?

Aidan: Listen carefully, and I'll tell you.

Bianca: Hey.

Ryan: Hey, come in, come in.

Greenlee: Thank you for coming by so fast.

Reese: Oh, yeah. You know, it sounded urgent. What's going on?

Bianca: Yeah.

Ryan: Well, we found a place where we can all get married.

Erica: You don't believe me? You think I'm lying about getting things out in the open with Reese and Bianca?

Zach: I think you're good at hiding how you truly feel.

Erica: Well that's a very interesting comment coming from you. Look, in this case, Reese was not honest about her past. I was trying to protect Bianca.

Zach: By accusing her fiancée of making a play for me.

Erica: Look, it was a misperception. I was wrong. I apologized to Reese and Bianca, and they have accepted it. I've let it go.

Zach: I haven't.

[Josh looks over the Seasons East Hotel & Casino's security system schematics on a laptop then picks up a gun]

Josh: Can't be too safe in a casino.

Krystal: Opal, you're here early. This is my attorney, Mr. Stark.

Stark: I'll meet you inside.

Krystal: So you're here to testify to the world that I cheated on your son and make sure the judge gives my baby to Tad.

Opal: This isn't easy for me, trying to take a child from its mother.

Krystal: Unless the child is Jenny, and I am the mother.

Opal: It has to be done.

Tad: What the hell are you doing here?

[Cell phone ringing]

Livia: Excuse me.

Tad: You know what? Never mind. Don't answer the question. Just leave me alone, all right?

Adam: I'm here to help, Tad.

Tad: Yeah, by blaming me for Krystal's little walk on the dark side?

Adam: I don't give a damn about Krystal. My concern is keeping Hayward away from my family. And so is yours.

Tad: My concern is protecting Jenny.

Adam: Oh? What about Little Adam? Hayward has a plan to take him. We have to stop him.

Tad: We? We -- as in you want me to team up with you?

Adam: Krystal did. We were all on the same path until Krystal fell under Hayward's spell. So was J.R.

Tad: I'm amazed the three of you could agree on anything.

Adam: Well, that's how determined we were to protect that little boy. But Krystal turned on us -- and you. Now she's trying to take your child.

Tad: A child you were willing to steal and sell.

Adam: You know, I can't stand you any more than you can't stand me. But if we don't set aside our differences, that sick SOB is going to take your daughter, J.R.'s son, and God knows who else. Don't underestimate Hayward. He's not your ordinary enemy.

J.R.: Amen to that.

Tad: My God, you look like hell.

J.R.: Key witness, right here, baby. I can prove that Krystal and Hayward have been knocking boots. Ok? Put me on the stand. I'll say it. I'll say it all.

Adam: You reek of alcohol. Is that yesterday's binge or do you have a flask in your pocket?

J.R.: Get off of me.

Tad: Wait, wait. J.R., do us all a favor. Just go home, ok?

J.R.: No. Hayward's after my son. I'm going to be in that courtroom.

Adam: Staggering drunk.

Livia: It's time to go.

Adam: Exactly what the judge needs to see.

J.R.: Yeah, well, I'm ready.

Tad: J.R., you are going to sit in that courtroom, and you are not going to say one word. Do you understand? Come on.

Erica: I wasn't aware that I owed you an apology as well.

Zach: When you doubted Reese, you doubted me as well.

Erica: But I told you very clearly, Zach, that I have never questioned your devotion to Kendall. I know how much you love her.

Zach: Yeah? How do you know that? How?

Erica: That's a ridiculous question.

Zach: No, come on. Humor me.

Erica: Because I've seen how you care for her. I've seen how you care for your children. I know the depth of your commitment. Kendall is the only woman in the world for you.

Zach: See what you just did? You described Reese's feelings for Bianca. I know it's a lot right now. They got engaged, they have a new baby. I'm the donor. But it's their family, Bianca and Reese. Me and my focus is on my kids, Kendall. Any more misperceptions, we're going to have a real problem.

Erica: Well, I already have a problem with the way you're speaking to me. Especially since I already said I am sorry. I was wrong. I know how much you love Kendall. I knew you'd never betray her.

David: I have news on Kendall.

Annie: So Dr. Sinclair wants me to get better.

Aidan: I'm not sure what Dr. Sinclair wants. But you have to be calm with her. You can't scream or shout or make her think that you want to hurt anyone.

Annie: Like Greenlee. She's mean.

Aidan: Listen, Annie, this is very important. You tried to hurt Greenlee before. You can't ever do that again. You can't tell anyone how you feel, especially Dr. Sinclair.

Annie: Why not?

Aidan: Because she'll never let you leave here.

Annie: Why do I hate Greenlee so much? What did she do to me? I mean, I have these memories in my head, like little things that I see in my head. But it all gets jittered.

Aidan: You blame Greenlee for ruining your marriage, for stealing your husband.

Annie: Ryan.

Aidan: Everything that you remember, the things that are coming back to you, you can't talk about it.

Annie: So what -- am I supposed to lie?

Aidan: No, you just have to keep your memories a secret. So when Dr. Sinclair asks you about what happened before you came in here, or what you did to Greenlee and Ryan or anyone, you have to say you don't remember.

Annie: I don't remember.

Aidan: Good. And if you're in a therapy session with Dr. Sinclair, and you feel scared or sad, those kinds of things you can tell her.

Annie: Yeah. I do still have feelings for Ryan. I still love him. But I hate him, too, for leaving me, for putting me in this place. They did it together, didn't they -- Ryan and Greenlee?

Aidan: Listen, Annie, I know you want revenge, but it's not going to solve anything. And you definitely can't talk to Dr. Sinclair about it. If you want to get out of here, you have to say the exact opposite.

Dr. Sinclair: Who are you talking to?

Ryan: It's in Connecticut, and the chapel dates back to, I don't know, like the Revolutionary War or something.

Greenlee: Yeah, we'll fill it with candles. It'll be beautiful.

Ryan: It will. And it's available on Valentine's Day, and most importantly, it's legal for all of us to get married there.

Bianca: It's perfect. I mean, for us, it's perfect.

Reese: Yeah. I mean, but are you guys sure you're ok with this? It's what you want?

Greenlee: We love it. But things got a little tense the last time we tried to pick a location, so --

Reese: Yeah, well, the tension's over. Erica waved the white flag. Everything's all good.

Bianca: And she's also back on board for helping us plan the wedding.

Greenlee: How do you feel about eloping?

Ryan: We are doing this together with our friends, family, and everybody we love.

Reese: Yeah. It's all going to work out. No more delays. The wedding is back on.

Opal: I'm doing the right thing by my granddaughter, getting up there and telling the truth.

Krystal: That I'm an unfit mother? Do you really believe that?

Opal: I warned you to stay away from David Hayward. I tried, I really did. But when you left your two girls to go rip each other's clothes off --

Krystal: Opal, I wish you would just understand.

Opal: Did I judge you for being drawn to David? No, I did not. I swore I would not tell a soul in the world, and all I asked was that you would promise to stay away from him. But what did you do? The first chance you get, you're out of there. I mean, come on. How weak are you? Do you just have no --

Krystal: All right -- ok, all right. Just do what you have to do, Opal. Say what you have to say.

Opal: I lost my Jenny, your baby's namesake. I understand grief. What I don't get is why a woman with the most loving husband in the world --

Krystal: You know what? You are seeing this from Tad's point of view.

Opal: I defended you right down the line. I gave you the benefit of the doubt at every turn until I walked in on you, locked lips with Satan himself.

Krystal: Look, it just happened, all right? I didn't plan it. Babe died and I --

Opal: And so now you've got David and to hell with the rest of us.

Krystal: Opal, Opal, please.

Opal: David got you that lawyer, didn't he? He's just a regular angel. Or is he? Do you ever think what he wants out of all this? Is he working to give you Jenny, or does he just want to take Little Adam all for himself?

David: As you know, Kendall's heart is failing. It's been in slow decline. But unfortunately, over the past 48 hours the deterioration has accelerated.

Zach: How long does she have?

David: I can't be exact, but I would guess it's a matter of days.

Zach: What about a transplant?

David: We've already discussed this, Zach. Kendall doesn't meet the criteria. I can't even get her on the list.

Zach: I don't care about a list, David. I'll find her a heart if I have to kill somebody.

Erica: What did David have to say?

Zach: Nothing.

Annie: I was just talking to myself. I do that a lot, just say kind of what's going on in my head out loud.

Dr. Sinclair: How are you feeling?

Annie: Good. Really good, better. I think I'm really getting better.

Dr. Sinclair: Earlier, we were discussing how you had escaped from the hospital. Are you up to talking more about that?

Annie: Yeah, I think so.

Dr. Sinclair: Great, great. We established how you had gone to Ryan's apartment. What happened there?

Annie: I don't remember.

Dr. Sinclair: You don't remember. Well, you did earlier. In fact, you said the memories were quite powerful. They scared you.

Annie: Yeah. Yes, I was scared.

Dr. Sinclair: Scared of what?

Annie: Um, not Ryan.

Dr. Sinclair: Well, honey, then of who? I mean, perhaps Greenlee?

Annie: No, no. I miss Ryan. I miss him. And I just -- I wish that I could talk to him again and somehow explain --

Dr. Sinclair: Explain what?

Annie: I don't want them to think that I'm bad. I don't want them to hate me.

Dr. Sinclair: Who is them? Because you hurt a lot of people.

Annie: Ryan. And Greenlee and Emma.

Ryan: I love the huge hill there out in front. I think Emma and Spike are going to have a riot sledding down that, don't you think?

Greenlee: You never told me what's in these boxes.

Ryan: Uh, that is all Annie's -- all her stuff. I found Emma going through her drawers and seeing her mom's stuff, and she just kind of looked confused, really. So I put it in boxes. You know what? It's probably time for me to get that stuff downstairs, right? In the basement or something?

Greenlee: Annie's whole life, packed in a box and put into the basement. It's like she's --

Ryan: I don't really know what to do, you know? I mean, we're getting married, and her stuff's here, and -- I don't know. I should probably get this stuff downstairs before Emma gets back home.

Greenlee: What's in that envelope?

Ryan: Um, this is -- it's Annie's jewelry that she was wearing when she got admitted into the hospital. Look, Annie's not going to be in our life forever, ok?

Greenlee: I know. I heard Dr. Sinclair say that she probably would spend the rest of her life in prison.

Ryan: If she can even get to a point where she can stand trial. Either way, she's going to get the help that she needs. She is. And we're going to move on.

Greenlee: I should let you get to work.

Dr. Sinclair: All right, let's just take it back a bit to the events that led to you coming here.

Annie: I don't remember.

Dr. Sinclair: All right. Let's -- we'll just take it slow. Maybe it will come back to you.

[Annie remembers]

Greenlee: I'm sorry that I ruined your wedding to Ryan. I apologized. I was in a bad place. Let it go.

Annie: Is that how it works, Greenlee? You blow into other people's lives, turn everything upside down, but then when everything is shining again in your world we're all just supposed to get over it? I don't want you talking to Ryan about me.

Greenlee: Chill out.

Annie: No, because then you're just going to turn him against me, Greenlee.

Greenlee: No, I'm not.

Annie: Stop. Stop chasing him, ok? If you don't stop, I will stop you. All I was, everything I wanted, it didn't matter. It's like I didn't exist. But I do exist, damn it. I exist. And I know you, Greenlee. I will get to you. I swear, I am ready for you this time. And I will rip your heart out with my hands!

Dr. Sinclair: Annie? Are you all right? Is something coming back to you?

Annie: No. No, I just feel sad.

Dr. Sinclair: What are you sad about? What are you thinking about?

Annie: I miss my daughter. I love Emma so much. Am I going to ever see her again?

Dr. Sinclair: Ok, let's just take things slowly. But I think I know what we need to do next, ok?

Annie: Did you hear that?

Aidan: Yeah. You did a great job.

Annie: My God, that was so hard. Pretending I didn't remember, especially about Greenlee.

Aidan: Annie, I know you don't like it, but Dr. Sinclair is going to keep on asking you what you remember about her. Now, remembering is really good for you, but you can't tell Dr. Sinclair what it is that you do remember.

Annie: So what am I supposed to tell her?

Aidan: That you don't feel angry about Greenlee anymore, that you forgive her.

Annie: What? No, I don't.

Aidan: Say you forgive Greenlee and that will bring you one step closer to being home with your little girl.

Emma: Daddy.

Ryan: Hey. Wow, you're home early. I thought you had a play date with Ashley.

Emma: She got a cold. What are you doing?

Ryan: Oh, um -- well, I'm just boxing up some of Mommy's things. And I'm going to put them someplace safe until --

Emma: Until she comes home? Can I see what's in the boxes?

Ryan: I have an even better idea than that. How about you go through the boxes and you find something that you really, really like. And when you find something, you can keep it. Yay? Ok, let's open it up.

David: Hey, sorry I'm late. I got held up at the hospital. How many pills have you taken?

Krystal: Just a couple. I was nervous. You gave them to me to take the edge off, remember?

David: Yeah, yeah. But you have to be careful. You can't be popping these things like breath mints, all right? Especially today. Where's your lawyer?

Krystal: He's inside.

David: Ok. I'm going to go see if he's ready, ok?

Krystal: David?

David: What?

Krystal: You've been really good to me, you know, with the medication and the attorney. But I just have to know, are you really doing all this to help me, or is it to take Little A?

David: Wow. You know, I expect to be accused and denigrated by everyone else in this town, but by you? Krystal, if you want my help, stop listening to these morons and trust me.

Krystal: No, I do. I do, I swear.

David: Good. And don't be paranoid, not now. I mean, today is about your daughter, not J.R.'s son.

Krystal: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

David: All right. Look, I'm doing this for you because of Babe. Jenny is her sister. You're her mother. And I love you.

Krystal: Do you really mean that?

David: Yes, I do, with all my heart.

Tad: What heart?

Zach: Kendall needs a heart. Can you get her on the list or not?

Joe: I can try, Zach. But she's going to be so far down the list that -- I've seen her chart. There's not enough time.

Zach: Just get it done, ok?

Joe: If that's what you want, yes.

Zach: That's what I want.

Dr. Sinclair: Oh, Ms. Smythe. What are you doing here?

Greenlee: You told me to contact you if I had any more thoughts.

Dr. Sinclair: I thought you would call. What can I do for you?

Greenlee: Honestly, I don't really know why I am here. I feel like I am going crazy. Sorry, bad choice of words.

Dr. Sinclair: It's ok.

Greenlee: I can't stop thinking about Annie. You know, what she might do to me, to Ryan. But mostly, I'm unresolved.

Dr. Sinclair: How so?

Greenlee: The whole world is pretending like Annie doesn't exist. And Ryan says that we have to move on, but I know he's as worried as I am. I can tell. I know that Annie is going to spend the rest of her life in maximum security, in a mental institute or a prison. I know that. I just have to find a way to make peace with it. I need -- I don't know what I need.

Dr. Sinclair: You need to see Annie.

Bianca: And there's a beautiful little inn nearby where we can all stay together and -- Mom, what do you think?

Erica: Oh, I -- I think that would be fine.

Bianca: "Fine" was not really the response we were looking for.

Erica: Look, I -- um, I just ran into Zach at the hospital, and I'm just a little worried about him.

Reese: What happened?

Erica: Well, Zach has been under a lot of stress lately, and so, you know, I just let him be. And I went in to see Kendall, but when I came out, he was speaking with David.

Bianca: And?

Erica: Well, when I asked him about it, Zach just walked away again.

Bianca: What if he got bad news about Kendall?

Zach: Hey. You're a guy who is not afraid to break the rules, right?

Jake: I'm just a guy who's having a drink.

Zach: How do I get Kendall to the top of the heart transplant list?

Jake: Hmm. I can't help you there.

Zach: You can't, or you won't?

Jake: Well, David Hayward made sure that I'm no longer employed at Pine Valley Hospital, so I don't have any pull.

Zach: All right. If you did have pull, who would you talk to?

Jake: Well, first I'd have to pretend I have a job, and I don't have a job. And secondly, I don't want to lose my license altogether, so --

Zach: Jake.

Jake: Yeah. There's nothing I can do.

Zach: My wife is dying, partly because of your screw-up. How does this work? What do I do?

Jake: I --

Zach: What do you need? How much? You want money? You want the casino? You want my house? What do you need?

Jake: To get Kendall to the top of the list like that, you would need -- you would need access, and I don't have that kind of access. I'm really sorry. I am.

Emma: Why do you have Mommy's wedding ring?

Ryan: Well, because the special hospital that Mommy's in right now doesn't allow anybody to wear jewelry.

Emma: Will you give Mommy's ring to Greenlee?

Ryan: No, sweetheart, no. No.

Emma: Can I keep it?

Ryan: Yeah, of course, you can.

Greenlee: Hello, Annie.

Aidan's voice: Forgive her, forgive her, forgive her, forgive her, forgive her, forgive her, forgive her.

Annie: I will, I will, I will.

Annie: Greenlee.

Greenlee: Yes.

Annie: I'm sorry.

Greenlee: I'm sorry, too.

Annie: I forgive you.

Dr. Sinclair: Thank you for seeing us.

Greenlee: I never should have come here.

Dr. Sinclair: Annie just apologized.

Greenlee: She lied. She doesn't forgive me.

Dr. Sinclair: How do you know that? What proof do you have?

Greenlee: In her eyes. I have seen that look in her eyes before. She'll kill me the first chance she gets.

Dr. Sinclair: A look is hardly enough to make a case.

Greenlee: I am telling you she wants me dead, and if you believe one word out of her mouth, you're as crazy as she is.

Amanda: Uh, a dirty martini. Actually, club soda. Thanks.

Jake: Hey. Club soda, huh? Doesn't sound like the Amanda that I know. Well, used to know.

Amanda: I had a flu shot today. Why do I feel like crap?

Jake: I think it's all in your head. Although you do kind of look like crap. You're not even wearing lip gloss. Thanks.

Amanda: Nice.

Jake: Well, you hang out with J.R., that's what you get.

Amanda: You and J.R. aren't that different, you know. He's screwed up because of David, so are you. You should team up, take him down together.

Jake: Funny, I thought you -- I thought you and David were tight.

Amanda: Why would you think that?

Jake: I hear things. Maybe that's, you know, why you're not feeling well. Word of advice -- the last place you want to find yourself stuck is between David Hayward and J.R. Chandler.

Judge: Please continue, Mr. Martin.

Tad: When I got back from Africa, I found out that Krystal was having the affair and that she had been neglecting our children, constantly leaving them with friends and family. As a matter of fact, the girls were away from home on Christmas Eve so that she could be with her lover. Your honor, this is a -- it's a sad situation for everybody. I understand my wife's been in a world of pain since she lost her older daughter, Babe. And she has another daughter who is not even two years old. Jenny deserves a stable and dedicated parent, and at this point, there's no question of which one of us that is.

Adam: The man that Mrs. Martin took up with is a criminal, a psychopath, and a known womanizer. She knew all about his sordid history and still allowed him to seduce her. When we were married, she and I, she cheated on me, too. She lied, she kept secrets. And she tore our life apart. I strongly believe that a child belongs with its mother -- if the mother is not a wanton homewrecker.

J.R.: Why don't you put me on the stand? I saw everything.

Tad: J.R., we had a deal.

Livia: Sit down.

J.R.: I was with Kathy and Jenny for hours while Krystal and Hayward came strolling in, laughing and smiling --

Jay: Your honor, this man is not on the witness list.

J.R.: I don't give a damn. The guy's a maniac. He's after my son, ok? As far as --

David: Will somebody shut this liquored-up loser? Please?

J.R.: Oh, really? Why don't you come over here and make me?

Judge: Order! Take your seats at once or I will have both of you removed.

Adam: Your honor, please forgive my son's outburst.

Opal: Well, you've already heard most of the dirty details. I don't have a heck of a lot more to add, except one thing. Krystal is hooked on drugs.

Jay: Your honor, that is an outrageous accusation with absolutely no proof to back it up.

Opal: David gave her the pills. She told me so herself. And the idea of my granddaughter living with a two-timing junkie just scares the bejeebies out of me.

Man: Mr. Slater, we need your signature.

Zach: What is it?

Second Man: An armored car's coming to pick up last night's receipts.

Man: The alarm on the special isn't wired yet, so they're coming through the main lobby.

Zach: Fine.

Bianca: What's going on with Kendall?

Reese: Has there been a change?

Erica: Tell me what David said.

Bianca: If there's bad news, just tell us.

Zach: I got work to do.

Bianca: No, Zach. Zach, I --

Zach: What?

Bianca: You know something. I can tell. I thought we decided no more secrets.

Zach: All right.

[Alarm goes off]

Gunman: Everyone down. Hit the floor.


Krystal: Yes, I had an affair with my daughter's father, the daughter that I lost. We were both grieving, and we reached out to each other. David's just been there for me in a way that nobody else can. He loved Babe just as much as I did.

Judge: Mrs. Martin, do you need a moment?

Krystal: No, no. David understands. He feels what I feel, he -- he holds me and he rocks me, and we remember our little girl, her smile and her laugh. She was an angel. She was an angel on earth. Now she's in heaven. She's gone. My beautiful baby. I can't -- I can't lose Jenny. Please don't take Jenny. I cannot lose her, too. Please.

David: Your Honor, may I?

Krystal: No. No, David. No, David, I'm not finished. I'm not. No, no -- please, just leave me alone. Please just let me --

[Krystal's pills fall on floor on the floor]

Amanda: David's a freak. J.R.'s a friend.

Jake: If you say so.

Amanda: What, now I can't be friends with a guy? Just because Taylor dropped you --

Jake: Whoa, hey, whoa. You don't have to be a bitch, ok?

Amanda: Neither do you. Saying I'm a --

[Heaving sound]

Annie: Greenlee came here to make sure I never get out of here. She wants to steal my life. You know what? Greenlee's not sorry for anything, and neither am I.

Aidan: Annie, I told you, you can't say things like that. If people know what you're thinking, you're never going to get out of this place.

Annie: Why are you helping me?

Aidan: Because I have the same thoughts that you do. The same feelings. We need to get better together.

[Greenlee walks into the penthouse, sees Ryan and Emma (wearing her mother's wedding ring) napping on the couch, and sadly walks out]

Erica: Oh, my God!

Zach: Stay down.

Reese: Zach.

Zach: Stay down!

[The masked gunman points his gun at Zach]
