Opal: Bang -- that's what the Chinese used to do when they had an eclipse. They'd smack pots together and bang drums. They thought a dragon had swallowed the sun, so they had to make a whole lot of raucous to scare it away.

Krystal: If only monsters scared that easy in real life, huh?

Opal: So should we park our fannies at a table?

Krystal: So you can lecture me on what a horrible person I am? I mean, that is why you asked me to come here, right?

Opal: No, no, I called --

Krystal: Save it. I don't need you or anybody else lecturing me on how to live my life.

Jesse: You have the right to have an attorney present --

Angie: Oh, you're joking, right?

Jesse: If you can't afford to have --

David: You broke into my house. That's no joke.

Jesse: Angela, I asked you to leave this to me.

Angie: You know what? This man stole Tad's wife by getting her hooked on an illegal drug.

David: I'm starting to think you're the one hooked on drugs.

Jesse: I need you to back off.

Angie: You know what? Sweetheart, I had the pills analyzed. They are not FDA-approved.

Jesse: Angela, where did you find these drugs?

Angie: That doesn't matter now.

Jesse: Actually, it does matter now. If these are your only evidence, and Hayward says that these are not even the pills that he gave Krystal --

Angie: Oh, really? And I guess he sold you a bridge, too? How many women?

Jesse: Angela --

Angie: How many has he used as guinea pigs? Experimenting on them with his crazy concoctions.

David: Maybe we should add slander to our list of charges.

Jesse: Enough, ok, enough. Angela, I'm going to need you to come downtown to make a statement.

Angie: Are you really doing this? Arresting your own wife? Fine, cuff me.

Jesse: That won't be necessary.

David: Well, maybe as a precaution.

Angie: No, maybe David's right. I mean, what if I make a run for it? Then you'll have to shoot me.

Amanda: If you're not dead, I'm going to kill you.

[J.R. chokes]

J.R.: Ah, what happened? What happened?

Amanda: What do you mean, "What happened?" You got wasted and took a nosedive off the dock. And I almost died trying to save your sorry butt.

[J.R. chokes]

Amanda: Hey. Hey, J.R., come on. Oh, my God -- J.R.

[J.R. coughs uncontrollably]

Taylor: See, it's a cool place, right?

Brot: I guess.

Taylor: Well, it beats pizza delivery at the condo again.

Hostess: Can I help you?

Taylor: Table for two.

Hostess: Follow me.

Taylor: Now I know that we're more sawdust-on-the-floor and dartboard-on-the-wall kind of people, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy -- whatever that was.

Brot: Did you notice where she sat us? Way the hell in the back, in the dark.

Taylor: Maybe she thought we wanted privacy.

Brot: No, Taylor. She didn't want me to scare off the rest of the customers.

Taylor: I think you're being paranoid.

Brot: Did you not see the way she looked at me when we walked in?

Taylor: No, because I was too focused on you. We are sitting at a lovely table. We're going to have a fantastic meal and enjoy a nice evening out like any other couple.

Jesse: I'm going to need you to come downtown, too.

David: I'm right behind you, chief. I've just got a few patients to look in on. I'm a chief now, too, you know.

Angie: You know what? Krystal is my friend. I won't let you hurt her anymore.

Jesse: Angela, we really have to go.

Angie: Yeah, you might have her fooled, but you sure as hell don't fool me.

David: This can't be easy for you. Thank you for doing the right thing.

Jesse: I'm doing my job.

David: No, of course. But, I mean, come on. Hauling your wife into the station with the other policemen looking on -- I mean, that's got to be awkward, to say the least. But then again, the two of you had your share of uncomfortable situations lately, right?

Angie: What is wrong with you? Taking that fool's word over mine!

Krystal: Well, isn't this a coincidence.

Tad: What? I just came here for lunch.

Krystal: Oh, right, and you just happened to pick this restaurant.

Opal: I had no idea that Tad was coming.

Krystal: Yeah, right.

Tad: Wait a minute -- does somebody want to clue me in?

Krystal: Well, your mother asked me to go to lunch, and she just happened to forget that you were going to be joining us. I do not like being ambushed.

Opal: Krystal, Krystal, no. I asked you to meet me so that we could bury the hatchet. Tad being here is pure coincidence. Well, unless the fates are nudging you two together.

Tad: Mama, trust me, now is not the time for the crystal ball.

Opal: I want what is best for my granddaughter, and I think that we all agree that that means having her mother in her life.

Tad: Krystal is in Jenny's life. So far, so good.

Opal: Ok, so that's the two of you working together for Jenny.

Krystal: Wait a minute. At the hearing, the idea of my daughter living with me scared you to death. And now you're in my corner?

Opal: Krystal, I have seen you with Jenny. I know how much you love her.

Tad: Krystal's love for our daughter is not in question.

Opal: That's right. The bottom line is that she needs both of you. So whatever else is going on, you just got to put your differences aside for the sake of the child. You know, when Palmer and me split, we stayed friends for Petey.

Tad: For God's sake.

Opal: Well, I can't say that there aren't times still when I have the urge to kick that old goat in the backside, but the point remains. Petey knows that he is the most precious thing in the world to us.

Tad: Mama, Mama -- we both appreciate your concern. Really, but I think it's best if you stay out of it.

Opal: Do it your own damn wrong way, but don't expect me to cut back on my Q.T. with Jenny.

Tad: Oh, God forbid. You can visit anytime you like. Speaking of which, I was going to leave here after lunch and pick up Jenny, take her over to her swimming class. Do you want to do it?

Krystal: Really?

Tad: Yeah. I mean, I'll be there to pick her up right when it's done. But under the circumstances, it might do you a world of good to watch her splash around for a while.

Krystal: That would be wonderful.

[Phone rings]

Krystal: Excuse me. Yeah?

David: Hey, it's me. Listen, I need you to meet me at the police station, and bring the bottle of pills I gave you.

Krystal: Is everything all right?

David: It will be if you do as I ask.

Krystal: You know what? I -- I am right in the middle of something. I --

David: Krystal, this is very important. I really need you right now.

Krystal: I'm on my way. Uh, I have to take a rain check on the swim class.

Tad: You're going to blow off our daughter again for his sake? Must be important.

Krystal: I'm sorry. I got to go.

Amanda: Don't sit, and take your wet clothes off.

[J.R. shivers]

Amanda: Oh. Oh, my God. You idiot! God. Take these. Get -- don't sit down. Get up.

J.R.: What for?

Amanda: You already ruined my clothes. You're not going to ruin my furniture, too. Oh, my God. Put these on. What were you thinking getting that drunk that close to the water? God. If I wasn't there, you would have died. Did that concept even cross your mind? Did you jump on purpose?

J.R.: No, it was an accident, and maybe you shouldn't have pulled me out.

Amanda: Oh, come on. We already had that conversation. Remember the part when I told you that you don't want to do it, and you decided to quit drinking and turn your life back around?

J.R.: What does it matter? Everyone I care about would be better off without me.

Amanda: Not true.

[J.R. coughs]

Amanda: Think about Little A. Hey. It's o-- hey, J.R. Wait, come on. Hey, J.R. Oh, my God. Where's my phone? Jake, Jake, I need help now.

[J.R. passes out]

Jake: That's it -- mild hypothermia. The alcohol in his blood -- that probably doesn't help, but the good news is he really wasn't in the water that long.

Amanda: What can I do?

Jake: Just -- nothing really. Just keep the blankets piled up and eventually his body temperature will return to normal.

Amanda: Hey.

Jake: Yeah?

Amanda: Thank you.

Jake: It's all right. Are you ok?

Amanda: Yeah, I wasn't in the water as long as he was.

Jake: Mm-hmm, well, he's lucky you walked by. I know he's in bad shape, but I didn't think he wants to kill himself.

Amanda: He did not try to kill himself.

Jake: All right.

Amanda: He didn't. He was drunk, he fell over.

Jake: Mm-hmm. Well, what were you doing there?

Amanda: My car wouldn't start, so I decided to walk to the hospital. I had my appointment for the abortion.

Jake: Oh, yeah, right, hmm.

Amanda: What does that mean -- "hmm"?

Jake: I don't know. Maybe fate intervened. I don't know.

Amanda: No, J.R., the drunken dumb-ass, intervened.

Jake: Ok, I'm just saying, it's not something that, you know, is that simple. You might just want to give it some thought is all I'm saying.

Amanda: I told you, I'm not ready to be a mom.

Jake: Hey, no, I'm not trying to push you in either direction. I'm just saying, you know, it's something you don't have to rush into.

Amanda: Oh, oh, my God. What time -- yes, actually, I do. I called the hospital, and they can still see me today, so --

Jake: Can I just say something? You just pulled him out of the freezing-cold water. You were in this water. Can you just take a -- take a rest, take it easy?

Amanda: I really need to go to the appointment and just put this whole mess behind me. Can you please stay here and watch him?

Jake: No, don't ask me -- no, I'd rather just go with you, ok?

Amanda: It's very sweet, but please -- I told you I need to do this by myself.

Jake: You're not just going to let me help you? Let me help.

Amanda: Please. You want to help? Keep an eye on him. Thank you. Thank you.

[Door opens and closes]

Hostess: Here you are.

Corrina: So how's your brother?

Ren: Oh, God, that sucks about his wife.

Colby: Yeah, it does.

Corrina: How's Pete?

Ren: Is that loser still stalking you?

[Ren and Corrina laugh]

Colby: He's not a loser.

Ren: Whatever.

Corrina: Yeah, he goes around telling people how much he loves her. He announced it over the P.A. where she works.

Ren: Are you serious?

Corrina: Mm-hmm.

Colby: He's not doing that stuff anymore. It's different now.

Ren: Oh, since his new look? Whatever, glasses or no, that kid is still a total geekazoid. Oh, thank you.

Colby: He actually made this speech. It was kind of amazing. He straight told me how he really feels, just laid it all out there. Whatever you think of him, that took serious guts.

Corrina: And in response to this kind of amazing speech, you said --

Colby: That I care about him but only as a friend.

Ren: Oh, oh, my God -- ouch.

[Corrina laughs]

Colby: It's not funny. Pete won't even talk to me anymore.

Ren: Whatever. That guy is going to be stalking you again by tomorrow.

Corrina: Mm-hmm.

Colby: I know he can be annoying, but I got used to him being around, and now --

Corrina: Oh, my God. Do not say you miss him.

Colby: I just -- I liked hanging out with him.

Corrina: And what's there to like again?

Ren: You know, guys -- guys, check that guy out over there. Can you say "freak show"?

[Corrina laughs as she stares at Brot]

Angie: The man sitting outside your office is a menace, but I'm under arrest!

Jesse: Angela, you were the one that set this thing in motion. Now please, you really need to work with me here. Do you or do you not want to make a statement?

Angie: Yes, I do. You're out of -- you're out of your damn mind!

David: Hey, thanks for coming.

Krystal: What is going on? Why is Angie here?

[Jess and Angie yell]

David: She's been arrested.

Krystal: Why?

David: Well, for breaking into my home, our home.

Krystal: No, no way. Angie would never do anything like that.

David: She did it for you.

Krystal: For me?

David: Yeah, yeah, the all-knowing Dr. Hubbard is convinced that I've been plying you with illegal drugs.

Krystal: Are you kidding me?

David: No.

Krystal: What you've given me is a mild sedative.

David: I know that. You know that. But Angie believes otherwise. So strongly, in fact, that she claims that she stole a bag of pills from my study, and her tests are saying that it's not a legal drug.

Krystal: Not a legal drug? That's impossible, right?

David: Well, not if she tested another batch of pills before claiming these were the ones that she took from me.

Krystal: You think she's trying to frame you?

David: Do you have the bottle of pills that I gave you? I just want to be absolutely certain that there hasn't been a mix-up or that Angie hasn't planted some illegal pills in your bottle.

Krystal: I cannot believe she would do that.

[David replaces Krystal's pills with another batch from his pocket]

David: Nope, no mix-up. These are the same pills. That's great. That's good news.

Jesse: Get back to work. What are you looking at?

Angie: Finally, we can get to the truth.

Krystal: Angie, did you break into his house?

Angie: Do you have the medication that he gave you?

David: All right -- no, no, no, wait a minute. I mean, shouldn't she be in the stockade or something or in a holding cell?

Jesse: I am warning you, David.

Angie: Krystal, the --

Jesse: Angela, please --

Angie: Krystal, the pills.

Jesse: I will take the pills.

Krystal: Look, he told me to bring them, but I'm not taking them anymore, all right? I don't need them anymore.

Jesse: I'm going to have these analyzed right away.

David: Go right ahead. I'm as anxious to get this cleared up as you are. I'm telling you right now, whatever's in that bottle is perfectly legal.

Angie: Yeah, we'll see about that.

David: You know your problem, Angie? You worry too much. Krystal is in excellent hands.

Tad: So, David says "jump," and Krystal asks "how high?" What about our daughter?

Opal: Letting her take Jenny to swim class? I mean, are you nuts?

Tad: Didn't you just finish lecturing me on trying to get along with her? Doing something for the sake of the child?

Opal: Yeah, yeah, but slowly, gradually. I mean, what if Hayward had called when the two of them were in the pool? I mean, Krystal might have run off and left Jenny bopping like a cork.

Tad: I was trying to be nice.

Opal: I know. I know, but, honey, the judge gave you he custody. That was the right thing. Now, you got to hold on to it until you are sure that Krystal is ready, really ready to be a mama again.

Tad: It kills me. Huh. I remember this exact feeling because I was in exactly the same place with Dixie. I swear, once David gets his hooks in them, it's like they turn into different people. Everything she said, everything she did was pure David. All I can do is sit here and watch them slip further and further away till they disappear. God, I hate it.

Opal: Do you still love Krystal?

Brot: Those people can't stop staring at me.

Taylor: They're just kids.

Brot: This is why I can't step outside of the house, because as soon as I go to, this is what happens.

Taylor: Hey, hey, you don't have to worry about stuff like that anymore, ok? You're not -- you're not alone anymore.

Ren: Oh, my God. Oh, I shouldn't have eaten. That guy's making me sick.

Colby: Shut up. He's my friend.

Corrina: Right.

[Corrina and Ren laugh]

Colby: Where do you get off cutting down people who are way braver than you'll ever be? First, Pete. Now, Brot?

Corrina: You know his name?

Colby: Yeah, Sergeant Brot Monroe. He risked his life for us in Iraq. Would either of you even consider going over there? No, you just sit around eating burgers, playing in a stupid band while guys like him get blown up fighting for this country. If anyone should be laughing, it should be him, at you two spoiled brats.

J.R.: What the -- hmm -- where am I?

Jake: You're still alive.

J.R.: Whoo. What?

Jake: You tried to kill yourself.

J.R.: What -- no, I -- I slipped. Where's Amanda?

Jake: Well, she -- after she rescued you from the water, almost killed herself, she went to the doctor.

J.R.: What for?

Jake: Probably because you make her sick.

[Jake chuckles]

Jake: Or you disgust her, kind of like you disgust me. No, no, no.

J.R.: Move.

Jake: No, no, why -- so you can stick your head in the oven and take the coward's way out?

J.R.: I told you I slipped.

Jake: Mm-hmm. Let me ask you something. Do you honestly think that you are the only man who's ever lost his wife? Do you? You respect Tad, my brother, don't you? He lost his wife. Now, I know -- but he's a man who lost his wife. Now, do you think that he just wallowed in alcohol and self-pity?

J.R.: Why don't you get out of my face?

Jake: No, he didn't. He picked himself up, he brushed himself off, and he moved on, and he didn't just do that for himself. He did that for his family, for his children. Now what about you? What about your child? Do you care what happens to your child, at all?

J.R.: Excuse me? I love my son.

Jake: Oh, do you, enough to get yourself loaded and walk off a dock?

J.R.: I guess you're perfect, huh?

Jake: No, I'm not perfect, but I don't have a 4-year-old at home waiting for me, counting on me.

J.R.: Yeah, that's right. You just make babies as favors for friends.

Jake: Where do you think Little Adam's going to end up now that his mother is dead and his father's trying to kill himself?

J.R.: You know what -- just say it one more time.

Jake: What -- or what?

J.R.: I don't care what you or anyone else says or thinks, I'm never, never, going to be leaving my son.

Tad: Krystal's a good mother.

Opal: That wasn't the question.

Tad: Look, no matter what happens, from here on out, that woman is always going to have my gratitude. She saved me, Mom. I was on the brink. She gave me a whole new life.

Opal: She seems to be doing her darnedest to blow it to smithereens.

Tad: She's not. David is. And I'm not trying to excuse her behavior. Our marriage is done, but who she is deep down, that's not gone.

Opal: You sure about that?

Tad: Yeah, I'm sure, because Hayward's doing exactly what he always does, what he's best at. He is manipulating a person in pain. Krystal -- she may be down. She's not out. She'll be back as Jenny's mother.

Opal: Even after the way she hightailed it out of here?

Tad: For God's sake, Mama. Maybe it was an emergency.

Opal: What? David cracked a horn?

Tad: It's not a joke. She's in pain. She's vulnerable. But she knows that her daughter needs a stable family, and I have faith in that and so should you.

Opal: I don't know.

Tad: I do. Mama, the woman that handed me a beautiful baby girl is still in there somewhere. She's got to be. Hayward can't destroy that. Not again.

Jesse: Tell the lab to put a rush on this and get back to me immediately with the results, all right? Angela, you're free to go.

Angie: Get myself a lawyer, you mean. Free to get myself a lawyer. You know what? I think that I will, because at least I'll have someone on my side.

Krystal: All right, you know what -- can we just leave? Let's -- let's go.

David: Yeah, come on.

Angie: You're not -- you're not leaving with him?

David: Yeah, I'm taking her home. Wait a minute, what are you --

Angie: You don't have to go anywhere with him. I want you to go back to my place, and I'll meet you there, ok? Don't look at him, look at me.

David: Who the hell do you think you are?

Angie: Krystal, I'm telling you the truth. David is using those pills to control you.

David: All right -- you know, that's enough.

Angie: You know what? I'd like to report a crime! This man is operating a narcotics laboratory in his home.

David: She's out of her mind.

Angie: Get your hands off her!

Krystal: Hey, it's all right.

Angie: No, it's not. Now listen, I'm asking you to trust me, ok, because you're not seeing clearly. Now, this man is ruining your life!

David: You're harassing her.

Angie: You've lost Tad, and you've lost Jenny because of him. Now, it is not too late to change things around if you listen to the people who love you.

Krystal: David loves me.

Angie: Oh, sweetheart, listen to me -- no. No, he's deceiving you. Babe is gone, and you're hurting. And nobody is blaming you for losing your way. But I am telling you, Krystal, if you don't stop this right now, everything good in your life will be gone. And I'm not saying that to frighten you. I'm saying it because I care.

Krystal: If you really care about me, Angie, just leave me alone.

Angie: Oh. I have to get to work. And don't worry, I won't cross state lines.

David: No, wait a minute, wait a minute. Not so fast. You do realize that you're part of an ongoing police investigation, right?

Angie: A bogus, trumped-up joke of a police investigation.

David: All right, you know, regardless of your opinion, I can't further jeopardize the reputation of the hospital by having a suspected felon on my staff. Now, I'm sorry, but I am forced to put you on suspension.

Jesse: Baby, baby, just breathe, just let it go. Breathe.

Angie: Do you have any objection to me clearing out my office?

David: No, no, not at all. I think that's a great idea.

Krystal: Oh, my goodness. Oh, Mama has missed you so much. Yeah. I'm so sorry I haven't been around as much as I should be, but you know what? I think about you all the time. You're my beautiful girl. I love you so much. Wow, she's really -- huh. She looks tuckered out.

Tad: Yeah, she is actually. I was just about to put her down for a nap. Come on. Let's take cow face. Let's go. Take cow face in here. Good girl. Play with cow face for a while. There you are. Whoa! There you go. There you go, go, go. Ooh, there you go. There you go. So, mind me asking what was so important that you had to duck out on our little mermaid?

Krystal: Well, it is Angie.

Tad: What about her? Is she all right?

Krystal: She got arrested for breaking into Wildwind.

Tad: Why the hell would she break into Wildwind?

Krystal: Well, huh, because, just like the rest of you, she hates David.

Jake: You better not be trying to drown yourself in the toilet, because I won't pull you out.

J.R.: What the hell is this? Huh?

Jake: Oh, has nobody ever had "the talk" with you about the birds and the bees? Let me explain it to you. See, when a man is attracted to a woman --

J.R.: Amanda went to the doctor. She's pregnant? Did you know about this? When was she going to tell me?

Jake: I suppose she didn't think it was any of your business. Yours or mine.

J.R.: Yeah, but how long was she going to keep it from me? Wait -- she's going -- is she having an abortion?

Jake: I don't know. If she is, that's her choice.

J.R.: And what about my choice? I'm the father.

Jake: I think when you spend half your time drunk and the other half passed out, I think you give up that choice.

J.R.: No, no, no. She should have told me.

Jake: Do you honestly think she wants a child with you? I mean, look at you. I think you should just stay out of it. Don't you? Don't you?

J.R.: Not a chance. That's my baby, too. And get your hands off of me.

David: Hey. What's the rush?

Amanda: Uh, no rush. The elevators are just so slow.

David: Yeah, it's on my list of things to do. So what brings you to my fine hospital?

Amanda: Uh, just here to visit a friend. Kendall.

David: I didn't realize you two were so close.

Amanda: She's my boss.

David: Yeah, but I've never seen you visit her.

Amanda: Well, I've been so crazy at work. You know, moving back into the office after the FDA shut us down, trying to turn the company around. I've been meaning to visit her for so long, so I heard she had the heart transplant, and I knew I had to come.

David: Wonderful. Now, why don't you tell me why you're really here?

Colby: I'm so sorry about my friends. They're lame and immature.

Brot: Forget it.

Colby: I can't. What they did was --

Brot: Was the same as what everyone else would do. It's not your problem, Colby.

Taylor: You know what? He's just not used to being out yet. He just needs time.

Brot: No, you know what? I don't need you to make excuses for me, and I don't need you to fight my battles. This is who I am now, and these people are going to stare and these people are going to laugh. I guess I thought I could deal with this.

Taylor: Wait. You're leaving?

Brot: You know this better than I do. Coming here was a mistake.

Taylor: Brot.

Colby: Should I go after him?

Hostess: Is there a problem?

Taylor: Yeah, I do have a problem. The stuck-up bitches who strut around like they're all that, when they're not even close. They're just shallow, ignorant snobs who look down on people when their whole contribution to life is, what, handing out menus? By the way, that man is a soldier. And you're welcome.

Amanda: You're right. I am not here to see Kendall.

David: Ok. Then why are you here?

Amanda: I'm not supposed to say anything.

[David chuckles]

David: Come on. You can trust me.

Amanda: I'm looking for Erica. We have this new project at Fusion, and ever since Commander Kane's taken over, she's treating me like crap, so she finally put me in charge of handling something big.

David: That's great. What is it?

Amanda: Well, I can't tell you. But if I'm late, it's back to fetching lattes, so --

[Hits elevator button]

Amanda: Come on.

David: Yeah. Yeah, when it comes to Erica and business, I mean, she can be very secretive. But secrets have a way of coming out, now, don't they?

Amanda: I'm just going to take the stairs.

David: Erica's not here, by the way. She went to the hotel.

Amanda: Well, then I guess I wasted a trip.

David: I guess so.

Amanda: All right. I'll see you around.

David: Yes, you will.

Tad: You're telling me that Angie, our Angie, was willing to break into Wildwind?

Krystal: Yep.

Tad: She must have had a hell of a good reason.

Krystal: She's out to get David, like everybody else in this town.

Tad: Oh. He's automatically the victim?

Krystal: She picked his locks, and she rifled through his things.

Tad: Looking for what?

Krystal: Well, she is trying to prove that David is turning me into a junkie.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: She says she found some illegal drugs that he's using to control my mind. Well, obviously, she's the one who can't face reality.

Tad: Do you hear yourself? I mean, you do realize you're talking about one of our dearest friends.

Krystal: Yeah, I know, and she broke the law, Tad.

Tad: Obviously, because she was desperate to help you.

Krystal: I do not -- I don't need help.

Tad: Are you really this far gone? Has Hayward possessed you in some kind of way? I mean, should I get on the phone with a priest, have him come over here? We'll do an exorcism right now.

Krystal: Oh, God. You know, once again, Tad, you just do not get it.

Tad: Yeah, no, I don't get it. He does. He understands you. He's the one that makes you feel alive. Well, you know what? If you were in so much pain that you need to believe that right now, then fine. But, please, don't let him erase everything else that you are.

Krystal: Who am I? I'm not your wife. I'm not Babe's mother anymore.

Tad: You're her mother. Babe may be gone, but you're Jenny's mother, and you're Little Adam's grandmother, and you're the beloved friend of half of this town. That's who you are. That's what's real. Not whatever you think you have with David. That is nothing but a lie.

Krystal: Maybe you and I were the lie.

Tad: Don't you ever tell me that.

Krystal: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I cannot be, you know, your perfect wife. I'm sorry that I cannot pretend that everything is grand, and I am sorry. I'm sorry that I want --

Tad: Open your eyes, damn it. What is it going to take? What is it going to take for you to see all of your friends who are laying down their lives for you so you can tear your life apart for the sake of that son of a bitch? What is it going to take for you to wake up and look in the faces of two precious baby girls and the face of a husband who loves you, who is doing everything he can to save you even though you're his worst possible nightmare? I've been here before. And I am begging you, from the bottom of my heart, to wake up to see what's real before you lose it. Before it's too late.

Nurse: Amanda Dillon?

Amanda: Yes.

Nurse: We're ready for you.

J.R.: Wait.

Amanda: What are you doing here?

J.R.: This can't wait.

Amanda: Can you give me just one second? What?

J.R.: Can we go someplace else?

Amanda: I have an appointment.

J.R.: I know.

Amanda: Talk fast.

J.R.: Amanda, I know. Why didn't you tell me?

Amanda: I have to go.

J.R.: No, don't do this.

Amanda: Just -- J.R., let go.

J.R.: Please.

Amanda: Let go.

Krystal: Please, please, stop.

Tad: All David really wants is pain and suffering for this entire family, for all of us.

Krystal: You know what? If you would just get past your history with Dixie and David --

Tad: No, I don't have to. I'm not going through this again, not anymore. Get out. Go on. Get out. Leave. Go back to David's bed.

[Krystal storms out]

Tad: Hey. Come here, sweetie. Come on.

[Tad chuckles]

Tad: Oh, give me a hug. Give your old man a hug.

David: Why are you still here?

Angie: I'm waiting for my husband. Do you have the lab results?

Jesse: Yes, the pills are prescription sedatives.

Angie: No, that's not possible. The pills I found are the same ones that he's been giving Krystal.

David: You can say that all you want, but it's not going to make it true.

Angie: I still found illegal drugs in his house.

Jesse: Well, those illegal drugs you found illegally are now inadmissible evidence, thank you very much.

David: Well, you know, I can't tell you how upsetting it is that after everything I've done to save this hospital, that someone on my own staff would accuse me of such a despicable act.

Angie: I'm going home.

Jesse: Angela. Angela?

David: Hmm. Now, who was it that said -- I think it was St. Peter who spoke of the "unfading beauty of a wife's gentle spirit." What the hell do you think you're doing? Did you ever hear of police brutality?

Jesse: Yeah, would you like to sample some of that? No witnesses.

David: Maybe you haven't thought this through, huh, chief? If I take a beating, the first person they're going to suspect is the man who's wife I put in prison.

Jesse: Messing with my wife -- that's a huge mistake. You mess with me. You could quickly learn what brutality truly is.
