Bianca: Kendall's made it this far.

Jesse: Hi, um -- listen, I know this is a bad time. I need some help. I need to know what happened in your room before the shooting.

Reese: We -- we told you everything.

Jesse: But in the room -- what did Josh do? What did he say?

Zach: Josh robbed a casino, held a hostage at gunpoint, so I ended it. What else do you want to know?

Erica: No, it -- it's all right. Um -- I have no idea how I can help, but I'll tell you everything that I know.

Jesse: You know what? It can wait. All right, listen, I want you to know also that I'm praying for Kendall.

Ryan: Hey.

Greenlee: Hi.

Ryan: Any word?

Greenlee: It has to work, Ryan. It has to. But what if Kendall's body rejects Josh's heart?

Ryan: Do you honestly think that Kendall would leave her two boys, leave Zach, leave you?

Greenlee: How are you doing? This must bring back memories of Gillian.

Ryan: I'm ok. I'm ok.

Bianca: She's going to be ok.

Erica: I can't lose her, too.

Erica: How is Kendall?

David: The surgery was a success.

Erica: Oh, thank God.

Zach: Well, what do we do now? How is she? What are we doing?

David: The next 48 hours are critical. We've started her on immunosuppressive therapy to lower the risk of rejection.

Zach: So, can I go see her?

David: Well, not until she gets out of post-op. And he'll be the only visitor allowed, at least for the time being.

Zach: Hey.

David: I am sorry about Josh.

Erica: Kendall's alive. It's what I've been praying for.

David: Yes, there is reason for joy. But that doesn't take away the pain of losing your son.

Erica: Kept telling myself that I made the right decision, that Josh's death wasn't in vain because Kendall's alive, but --

David: But of course, it still rips you up inside. We tell ourselves all sorts of things to get over the loss of a child. If you find something that works, let me know.

J.R.: Oh! Uh, hey -- hey, Little Adam -- hmm -- how you doing?

Little Adam: Are you ok?

J.R.: Yeah, sure. I'm ok.

Little Adam: Want to play with me?

J.R.: You know what? I would love to play with my favorite little man in his favorite little world, but first, let me take a sip of this. I -- I wouldn't want to spill it.

[J.R. chuckles as he continues drinking]

J.R.: Yeah.

Amanda: Are you here to slam me because David paid me to tank J.R., or because I'm pregnant, or because I don't know who the father is?

Jake: Hmm, so many choices. I'm actually just here because I'm concerned.

Amanda: What's this?

Jake: Prenatal vitamins.

Amanda: Thanks, but you can keep them.

Jake: That's all right. Look, I've been -- I've been an ass and, uh -- I've given you a hard time. So, I'm just coming to, you know -- coming to be a friend, to help.

Amanda: I'm knocked up, so you're being nice to me now? Forget it.

Jake: Amanda, there's nothing easy about being pregnant, you know? And I -- I get that you're a strong, independent glamazon of a woman. I do, but you know, you don't have to go this alone just to -- to prove a point. Just let me help you.

Amanda: I don't need a friend or advice or vitamins. I'm -- I'm getting an abortion.

Angie: I want to talk to you.

[David sighs]

David: Not now.

Angie: I know what you've been doing.

David: Really? Well, then you know that I just performed a heart transplant on Kendall Slater. I'm exhausted.

Angie: I know what you've been doing to Krystal.

David: She's happy.

Angie: You're drugging her.

David: If love is a drug, darling, then --

Angie: These don't look like hearts and flowers.

David: Where did you get those?

Angie: I had them analyzed. They're not prescription sedatives. You whipped them up yourself, and you've gotten Krystal hooked. You turned her into an addict.

Zach: Kendall is alive because of you.

Erica: I would have given her my own heart if I had to.

Zach: Thank you for giving your consent for the transplant.

Erica: There was no other decision to be made.

Zach: If there'd been any other way, I'd --

Erica: I -- of course, I wish there were. Josh made mistakes. He was wrong, but I loved my son. And now he's -- he's dead.

Zach: Sorry.

Greenlee: I still can't believe that Josh would do something like this.

Reese: Yeah, it was pretty scary.

Ryan: He must have been pretty desperate to come back to Pine Valley, you know? Considering Zach's wanted him dead for so long. And now, of course, he is dead exactly when Kendall needs a heart.

Greenlee: You don't think that Zach shot Josh to --

Ryan: To get his wife a perfect match of a heart? I mean, it doesn't really matter what I think, right? All that matters is that this is working out for Zach and for Kendall, right?

Reese: All I know is that Zach saved my life.

Joe: Erica, I just heard. I'm so sorry.

Erica: It's your loss, too. Joe, I -- I made so many mistakes with Josh.

Joe: Oh, don't say that.

Erica: You saw the goodness in him. You saw the -- the talent in him and that he was compassionate.

Joe: He was a very special doctor, and he -- he could have had a brilliant career if he had chosen that path.

Erica: And if I had been a better mother, maybe I would have seen how much trouble he was in sooner. So that he felt the only option he had was to embezzle from Zach's casino. Maybe I could have stopped him. I mean, I think that so much could have been different if I had just --

Joe: Erica, you did nothing wrong. Josh's choices were his own. He knew you loved him. He loved you.

Joe: These are his effects.

Erica: Josh saved my life at the Mardi Gras Ball and now he saved his sister Kendall's.

Jack: Hey, you.

Greenlee: Hey.

Jack: Any word on Kendall?

Greenlee: She made it through surgery.

Jack: Well, thank God. That's good news, huh?

Greenlee: Yeah.

Jack: Yeah.

Greenlee: It still hasn't sunk in, you know? She's alive because Josh is dead.

Jack: Yeah, Josh holding Reese hostage at gunpoint, bringing a weapon into the casino where Zach was? I mean, what the hell was he thinking about?

Greenlee: It wasn't the Josh I know. He was funny and sweet and charming and -- when I needed a friend, you know, he was there.

Jack: Well, I know you've lost a friend, but if Josh's death can give Kendall her life back, then, well, it's something to be thankful for, huh?

Greenlee: If I lose Kendall -- you know, last night I think I promised her that if she recovered, I would do whatever she wanted to.

Jack: Ooh.

[Jack chuckles]

Greenlee: Yeah. Do you think that people in comas can hear or remember?

Jack: Well, you know that's what they say. You just might be in trouble, kiddo.

Greenlee: If she walks out of these doors, I'll do anything she wants. Just don't tell her I said that.

Jack: Ok.

Ryan: I'm really sorry about your grandson, Joe.

Joe: Thank you, Ryan. I'm going to try and reach Jeff again. Not the kind of message you want to leave on voice mail.

Ryan: I, um -- I know how hard it must have been for you to give consent to use Josh's heart in the transplant.

Erica: Jilly. I know how much you loved her.

Ryan: I did, I did, I loved her, and it was the hardest decision I probably ever had to make, or one of them, anyway, but Laura lived because of Gillian, and Kendall will live because of Josh and because of you.

Erica: I have to make some kind of cosmic sense out of this insanity. If Josh had to die then it's so that his sister Kendall could live.

Jack: I am so, so sorry for your loss.

Greenlee: Josh was a good man. Whatever made him do what he did at the casino, he must have been in a lot of pain.

Erica: I hope he's at peace now. I hope that he knows that he gave this great gift to Kendall.

Greenlee: I think he does.

Jack: Is there anything at all that I can do?

Erica: No, no, really. I'm all right. I -- I just, um -- I'm just going to wait.

Ryan: There's not a whole lot to wait for right now. I mean, David did say that Zach is the only visitor that Kendall can have right now.

Erica: I know, but I just -- I just want to be here. I just -- I just want to be close to Kendall.

Greenlee: And then keel over from starvation and exhaustion when they do let you see her?

Jack: Yeah, why don't you let me take you to your hotel?

Erica: Oh, I -- I'm not sure that I can really go back there.

Jack: I'll stay with you. I'm sure it's difficult for you to see this, but Kendall has her mother's spirit and now her brother's heart, and I think with that combination, she's going to walk right out of here, I really do.

Ryan: Even Erica Kane can't go on forever without some food and a little sleep.

Erica: Ok, but you promise me that you will contact me just the second you hear anything.

Ryan: Absolutely promise.

J.R.: Hey, we could put another section -- oh, I'm sorry. I can fix that. I could fix --

Little Adam: You ruined it.

J.R.: I'm sorry, Little Adam. I'm sorry.

Little Adam: You stink.

J.R.: Listen to me, I love you. I love you, Little Adam. Hey, Little Adam!

Adam: Hey, what in blazes is -- what did you do to upset Little Adam? You're drunk.

Amanda: People have abortions every day, ok? So don't preach at me, don't try and talk me out of it, and please don't tell me I'm going to hell.

Jake: I'm not -- I'm not doing anything like that. I'm just saying you might want to take a little, you know, more time before you make such a big decision.

Amanda: I've decided.

Jake: Amanda, you've taken more time to decide what not to wear to a party -- is this because you don't know who the father is?

Amanda: It's because -- there's no way in hell I'm ready to be a mom.

David: You're going to tell me where you got those, or you're going to make me guess?

Angie: You're giving Krystal illegal, unproven, untested drugs. She thinks she's taking a legal sedative to calm her nerves, and you've turned her into a lab rat.

David: Did Krystal give those to you?

Angie: Krystal is too blind or addicted to suspect that you'd ever do something so disgusting.

David: Hmm, that's a serious accusation.

Angie: It's true.

David: Career-ending, if proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Angie: Well, that's why the police are on their way.

David: Your husband.

Angie: You have done enough damage to the people I love, this town. It's time your behind was stopped.

J.R.: I thought that he was taking a nap, Dad.

Adam: So, you only have to be sober when he's awake?

J.R.: I didn't think he would see me like this.

Adam: You didn't think he'd see you at all. Your son's mother is dead. He needs you whole, healthy, strong, and you're upside down in a bottle.

David: You're pathetic. You don't deserve to be a father.

J.R.: You're not going to take my son from me.

Adam: I am not trying to take your son away from you.

J.R.: You're never going to take him, damn it! You hear me? Never!

Amanda: I want babies someday, but I'm not ready to be a mom. I'd suck. I can't even keep plants alive. I -- I live on a boat, not exactly baby-proof. I am not baby-proof.

Jake: Are you making this decision because you don't know who the father is, or because you do know who the father is and you're not saying?

Amanda: I -- I want my life back the way it was, starting now.

Jake: Wait a second -- you're not -- you're not doing this right now, are you?

Amanda: The sooner, the better.

Jake: Wait a second. I'll -- I'll take you. I'll take you.

Amanda: No, I -- I just -- I want to do this alone. This is not a selfish, all-about-me decision, ok? I would not make a very good mother. I ruin lives for cash. I'm not a nice person. No kid deserves me as a mom.

Jake: Amanda -- I -- I happen to think that you'd be a great mom.

Angie: The way you've run this hospital to punish people on your enemy list is bad enough, but to ruin Krystal and Tad's marriage --

David: So, you're going to have me arrested by your husband because Krystal wants me instead of Tad. I don't think that's a felony.

Angie: You manipulated Krystal away from Tad, and you used these to do it.

Jesse: I got your message. What's up?

Angie: Arrest him.

Jesse: Excuse me?

Angie: They're one of David's experiments. You used them to get Krystal addicted so he can control her.

Jesse: Pretty serious charges.

Angie: They're all true.

David: I guess you want a statement.

Jesse: Uh, yeah.

David: Why don't we go to my office?

Bianca: It was definitely a -- a weird thing when Josh just showed up into our lives, but we grew to love each other. At least I thought we did. I remember the times we spent together, all of us. It really started to feel like we were a family.

Reese: I'm so sorry, sweetie.

Bianca: I just -- I don't understand. I don't -- I don't know that person. I don't know the person that could've killed you. When I saw him holding a gun to you, I -- I was so scared. Thank God you're ok.

Reese: Thank Zach, huh?

Zach: How you holding up? Hey -- what was that for?

Bianca: If you hadn't -- Reese is here because of you.

Bianca: And I know it was a terrible thing that you had to do, but you didn't have a choice, and because of you, she's safe, and now Kendall has another chance.

Zach: Yeah, she does, and I'm grateful. What I'm worried about is Kendall waking up and looking at me, and all she sees is the man that killed her brother.

Little Adam: Where's Daddy?

Adam: Oh, he'll be back soon. I'm sorry he scared you. He didn't mean to. He loves you very, very much. He just hasn't been feeling well lately.

Little Adam: Is he going to be ok?

Adam: Oh, uh -- yeah. That's what I pray for every day.

J.R.: You've messed up. I know you're supposed to be perfect and all, but you should have taken me and not Babe. You hear me? You messed up! I'm useless. My father thinks I'm a loser. My son's afraid of me. And all I can think about is having another drink. So if you've got some great, big, amazing plan, I suggest you get on with it, because I can't keep doing this anymore.

Erica: Thank you for bringing me back.

Jack: You're welcome. Would you like a cup of tea, or have something sent up from room service? I know you need something to eat.

Erica: Oh, no. I'm good. You don't have to stay.

Jack: I'd like to. You've been through a lot. I'd just like to see that you're all right.

Erica: My son is dead. My daughter's in a coma. No, I'm not all right.

Jack: Erica, if there's anything I can do, whatever it is, you know, I'd be happy to do it.

Erica: Josh just looked like he was sleeping, like he could wake up at any moment. Doctors assured me that that was impossible, but somehow watching him there, lying there so peacefully -- and he was breathing. And I couldn't help but think that maybe some day, somehow, a miracle could happen. But Kendall needed a miracle today, so I had to choose. I had to accept that Josh was dead so Kendall could live.

Jack: Erica, Josh couldn't be helped, and Kendall could.

Erica: You say that so easily. What if it were Lily and Reggie, Greenlee? Could you say it so easily then? Could you so easily take responsibility for having your son's heart cut out so your daughter could live?

Jack: I'm sorry.

Erica: Well, it was the hardest decision I ever had to make in my life, and I was alone, and so don't think that you can just offer me some tea or some food and think that that's a help.

Jack: Erica, I would have been right by your side. I just figured that with what's been going on between us lately, you wouldn't want to look up and see me standing there. It would be the last thing you would want.

Erica: Yeah, whatever is going on between us, our families have always come first.

Jack: Absolutely. All you had to do was pick up the phone and call me.

Erica: Yeah, well, I didn't want to bother you.

Jack: Bother me. Erica, how would you be bothering me?

Erica: You're with Carmen now. You have your own life.

Jack: Oh, come on -- please. What -- why are you doing this?

Erica: I think you should leave.

Jack: I think we need to stop playing this game that we play.

Erica: You think this is a game?

Jack: Yeah, I think that's exactly what it is. And the problem is, the rules keep changing, Erica. And I'm tired of not knowing what the rules are, what the hell the score is. I care about you so much, and I always will, and you know that. And, yes, our family always comes first, and, yes, we will always be in each other's lives. Ok, unless of course, you don't want me in your life anymore, and then say the word and that can be arranged, as well. Ok. Well, this was a bad idea. Call me if there's anything that I can do. Or don't.

Zach: Hey.

Bianca: Hey, how is she?

Zach: Her heart is strong, and she's even got some color in her face.

Bianca: Good. I cannot wait to see her.

Ryan: Next step is she opens her eyes.

Greenlee: And puts her nose back in everybody's lives.

Bianca: Yeah, right, I know.

Zach: Yeah, it's --

Bianca: If you guys aren't married by the time she wakes up, then you better be careful, because she'll probably drag you down the aisle by your ears.

Greenlee: Oh, that's only because she loves us so much.

Ryan: Yes.

Greenlee: But you the most.

Zach: Hey.

Reese: I just can't wait to meet her.

Zach: You're going to love her, and she's going to love you.

Bianca: You should go home and get some sleep.

Zach: I'm good. I'm fine. Everything's good.

Bianca: No, no, you've been up for, what, two days? Go home to Spike and Ian, and give them a kiss. Tell them Sleeping Beauty got a magic heart.

Zach: "Sleeping Beauty," huh?

Bianca: Would you take this man home?

Reese: Sure, absolutely. Let's go.

Zach: If anything happens, give me a call, all right?

Bianca: Absolutely.

Greenlee: We'll call you.

Zach: Ok. Bye.

Ryan: See you.

Reese: Good, huh? All right, I'll see you later, ok?

Bianca: Ok.

Greenlee: Well, I think it's going to be a while. So anyone getting a junk food attack like me? Oh, of course, you are.

Bianca: I'm -- I'm good.

Greenlee: Don't worry, I'll share.

Ryan: Ok. How you doing?

Bianca: It's crazy.

Ryan: Yeah, it is.

Bianca: You know, I was thinking maybe we should postpone the wedding.

Ryan: Really. Why?

Bianca: Well, I mean, Kendall's still in a coma, but maybe if we wait, she'll wake up in time.

Ryan: As much as I want Kendall at the wedding, it might be weeks before she actually wakes up.

Bianca: I know. It's just -- it's such an important day.

Ryan: Which is exactly why Kendall would probably tell you not to postpone it, and she'd keep telling you that until you agreed with her.

Bianca: Probably. But it's -- it's not just Kendall. It's also Mom. I mean, she'll be grieving, and to have a wedding so soon --

Ryan: Erica will be fine. She will. What else you got?

Bianca: Well, I don't understand.

Ryan: Postponing the wedding isn't about Kendall or Erica or anything else other than the fact that you are still afraid that there's something going on between Reese and Zach.

Erica: Yes?

Jack: We need to decide once and for all whether we can be honest with one another. I don't know where we stand. I don't know what you want. I don't even know what I want. I just know there must be some way for two people who care as much as we do for each other to -- I don't know.

Erica: Stop hurting each other?

Ryan: Hey, look, if you have any doubts at all, just call off the wedding. The point is, is that you don't -- you don't need an excuse to do it.

Bianca: Wait, are you saying that you don't think I should trust Reese?

Ryan: No, no, that's not what I'm saying. I just -- I want you happy, Bianca, that's all. I want you 100% sure. When I married Annie, I kind of rushed into it, and if I'd listened to my gut, then maybe it wouldn't have been such a disaster.

Bianca: Well, Reese and I know each other better now. Look, I -- I almost blew us up with that stunt I pulled, but she forgave me. And I forgave her. And -- and I want to spend the rest of my life with her.

Ryan: Ok, good. Good. So you're cool with Reese and Zach?

Bianca: We're family. I'm -- I'm glad that Reese and Zach are as close as they are.

Zach: Your mom's going to be home real soon, all right?

Reese: Well, all three of you look like you could use a nap. Why don't I take these two and put them down. Ok, come on.

Zach: Come on, monkey.

Reese: You want to go for a little nap?

Zach: No, I'm not going to sleep. I'll be up for a while.

Reese: Come here. Come on.

[Gaby fusses]

Zach: I got her.

Reese: Ok, thanks.

Zach: Hey, what you doing? Come here. Oh, my goodness. Huh? What are you making so much noise for? Everything's going to be all right. Everyone's going to be happy. Yeah.

Bianca: So, I don't know everything that Reese is thinking. Do -- do you know every little thought that Greenlee has, or what she's going to do?

Greenlee: Where's the fun in that?

Bianca: Yeah, exactly. It keeps things interesting.

Ryan: Every once in a while I would love things to be a little boring.

Greenlee: He doesn't mean that.

Ryan: So -- wedding's on?

Greenlee: Is it off?

Bianca: It's definitely on.

[Gaby cries]

Reese: Ok, kiddo -- oh, Zach is falling asleep. It's ok. It's ok. It's all right.

Amanda: Hey. What are you doing here?

J.R.: Watching the moon eat the sun.

Amanda: It's freezing. You don't have a coat. Come on, let's go someplace --

J.R.: Leave me alone.

Amanda: What is your problem? You've been drinking.

J.R.: I scared my kid. I never wanted him to see me like that. The way that he looks at me --

Amanda: He'll get over it, J.R. You're a good dad.

J.R.: Come on, what do you know about being a good parent? Sure, maybe I know how to throw a great party, or great in the sack, or -- but as a father -- my son was afraid of me.

Amanda: So get sober and go home and tell him you're sorry, and that -- and that you love him.

J.R.: See, the sober part's probably going to be a problem, because I can't. I need it.

Amanda: You don't.

J.R.: Hayward was right. I don't deserve to be a father. I let down Babe. I let down Little A. Damn it!

[Amanda screams as J.R. falls into the water]

Amanda: J.R.!

Angie: Did he make a statement?

Jesse: Uh, yeah, he did.

Angie: So, are you going to arrest him?

Jesse: Actually, Angela, I'm going to have to arrest you -- for breaking and entering. Angela, you have the right to remain silent. Anything you say may and will be used against you --

Angie: Would you come off of it?

Jesse: In a court of law.

Angie: This isn't funny.

Jesse: You have the right to an attorney. If you can't afford one, one will be appointed for you.

Erica: When I was with Jeff, Josh once told me that he thought you were the man for me, that I should try to get you back.

Jack: Well, obviously Josh hadn't realized that you don't take advice on who to love from anybody.

Erica: As hard as it was for Josh to accept me, us, to get past everything -- he became a member of this family. He helped his sisters, he helped his nephews. If only he had let us help him.

Ryan's voice: An eclipse just for you, Kendall.

Bianca's voice: Dear God, bring Kendall back to us.

Greenlee's voice: Give her the strength to come home to her family and friends.

Bianca's voice: Let her feel our love, our hope.

Greenlee's voice: Our prayers.

Bianca's voice: Give us a miracle.

Greenlee's voice: Show us a sign.

Ryan's voice: Don't stop now. You got to keep on fighting. Your family needs you, Kendall. Your boys. Zach needs you.

Amanda: J.R.! J.R., where are you? Somebody help me! Help me! J.R.! Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
