J.R.: Amanda has decided she'd like Ryan and Greenlee to try and adopt the child.
Colby: Ryan and Greenlee? Really?
J.R.: That's what Amanda wants. She wants a quick, uncomplicated adoption.
Colby: Wow. How do you feel about that?
J.R.: I don't know. I don't know. Part of me says I'd rather some unknown parents adopt him or her, you know, so I wouldn't have to see the kid or know that it's mine, but then again, with Lavery, he'd make a good life and the best schools and a much more stable family than ours, and then --
Colby: And then there's the part of you that wants to keep it.
J.R.: But that wouldn't be right. I'd be acting just like Dad, trying to lay claim to a kid like he was my own personal property, and I'm just not going to go there, you know? I've got to look after myself right now.
Colby: But you are trying to get better, and when you're not drinking, you're the best dad.
J.R.: But that's Amanda's decision, not mine, and she's decided to give it up.
Colby: J.R., are you sure the baby's yours?
J.R.: Don't go there. I've already got a Hayward taunting me with that same crap. Amanda says it's mine, and I have to believe her. Besides, with the baby up for adoption, I'm just not going to push that any further. It's all going to work out. We've just got to make sure that Dad doesn't find out about the pregnancy. Otherwise, we're all going to have to dive for cover.
Tad: Kathy? Kathy? Kathy? Honey? Kathy? Oh, God, oh, God, oh, God.
David: I understand how painful it is to lose a child, but you made the right decision, Erica. Josh's heart saved Kendall's life.
Erica: Thanks to you, and you're not going to let me forget it. Isn't that what you just said?
David: One day soon, we can talk about what you can do to help me out.
Erica: Well, if you still have designs on getting custody of Babe's son, you're going to have to do that without my help.
David: I know I'm not wrong in my belief that you and I had an understanding.
Erica: Yes, we did. I told you. No matter how dysfunctional the Chandler family is, I really do not wish to be part of taking that little boy away from his family when he has just lost his mother. I'm sure you can understand that. And, besides, if you are so set on this, you have Krystal now to help you.
David: Why is everyone so convinced that I'm with Krystal just to get my grandchild?
Erica: As the scorpion said, it's in your nature.
Kendall: I'm sure the donor was just as perfect.
Bianca: I wanted to tell you. I tried to, before the tornado touched down.
Kendall: Tell me what?
Bianca: Zach was our donor.
Zach: Let me talk to her.
Erica: Is -- is everything all right?
Bianca: I don't know. I just told Kendall that Zach was our donor.
Kendall: All right. I'm listening.
Zach: Well, this could have waited. You just woke up. I didn't want to upset you.
Kendall: Just a few minutes ago, I was telling you I was ready to give you the daughter you wanted, and now, I find out that my sister already did.
Zach: Listen, no. She's not my daughter. I'm not the father. I'm -- I'm -- the donor. It's -- it's very different.
Kendall: And when were you planning on telling me about that?
Zach: I didn't even know that Bianca was pregnant. She was going to tell me, tell us, if -- if something was successful and -- I know you have a lot of questions, and just where our relationship was, I didn't think it made sense to bring something up that may or may not happen. And why did I do it? Well, I -- I wanted to help Bianca, wanted to help Reese.
Kendall: Of course. I'm glad you did.
Erica: How did she react?
Reese: We're hoping -- we're hoping that she's going to be ok with it.
Erica: Well, of course, you are. That would be a big relief, I'm sure, to both of you.
Erica: Excuse me.
Bianca: Oh, my God, if only it hadn't happened like this. I should have told her sooner.
Reese: Honey, we didn't even know that Gabrielle was going to make it past the sixth-month mark.
Bianca: Well, then I -- I should've told her that day. I should've -- should've called her then.
Reese: You tried. Right, well, you tried. Didn't you? That's why you got on a plane, and you came here.
Bianca: If I had gotten here sooner, then I -- I could have helped ease the blows. Zach and I could've talked to Kendall and explained things. She would have been there for Gabrielle's birth, and now, who knows how she's going to feel about it once it really sinks in?
Reese: Honey, you couldn't have predicted the tornado. This is not your fault. It is nobody's fault.
David: I distinctly remember you pulling me away from mourning my daughter, begging me to save Kendall, and telling me that you would do anything to repay me.
Erica: David, I have just lost my son and recovered my daughter. Don't ask me to help you take away someone else's child. Even if he is your grandson, I won't do it.
David: I don't know why I can't stay angry with you.
Erica: Too much history?
David: We had some good times.
Erica: Yes, we did, and you were always there for me when it counted. I'm sorry, David, that you had to come back to so much pain. I really do hope that you'll find some peace. And thank you for saving Kendall.
David's voice: This is Dr. David Hayward. If this is a medical emergency, hang up and dial 911. Otherwise, please leave a message for me at the tone.
Krystal: Yeah, this is me. Um, could you call me and let me know when you're going to be home? I had an argument with Tad and I -- I need you.
Jesse: Tad, we're going house to house. If she wandered off, we're going to find her.
Tad: Yeah, well, that's just it. It's not like her. She wouldn't just wander off.
Jesse: Oh, come on, sometimes kids do things that just don't make sense.
Angie: Was Kathy upset at all? Would she run away for some reason?
Tad: No, man, she was fine. At least I -- I mean I -- I don't know. I don't -- I -- I'm sorry. I can't do through this again.
Jesse: Listen. We're going to find her, all right? Now I need to know who was here today and what time.
Angie: You don't think someone took her, do you?
Jesse: Just trying to establish a timeline.
Tad: Well, if somebody did take her, we know who it would be.
Jesse: Well, let's not jump to conclusions here, all right?
Tad: Listen, honey. Do me a favor. Would you stay here, look after Jenny for me, please?
Jesse: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Tad, where are you going?
Tad: Where do you think I'm going? I'm going to go find my daughter.
Jesse: Listen, I need you to call me in 10 minutes with an update. I'm going to make sure he doesn't do anything stupid.
J.R.: It's all going to work itself out. Don't worry about Dad. I'll take care of him.
Adam: Well, that sounds really ominous. What are you two up to?
J.R.: You know, you keep sneaking up on me like that, you're going to ruin your surprise.
Adam: You know how I hate surprises. What's going on?
J.R.: Uh, never mind. Just happens to be about your birthday.
Adam: My birthday happens to be in May.
J.R.: We're planning ahead. I thought you were staying in tonight.
Adam: I know. I changed my mind. Thought I'd get out.
J.R.: Maybe to check up on me?
Adam: Yeah, maybe.
Colby: He's doing fine, Dad.
J.R.: That's right, straight H2O.
Adam: Good, you're good. Something wrong?
Colby: No, I just --
Adam: Cortlandt? I thought you were friends.
Colby: Not anymore.
Adam: Would you excuse me a second?
Colby: That was close.
J.R.: Yeah, you know, sometimes I think he has me wired for sound again. You know, I bet he'd like to install a tracking device in the skulls of every future Chandler heir.
Amanda: Hey. Do you mind if I have a private minute with your brother?
J.R.: Oh, it's ok. She knows.
Amanda: She what? I asked you not to tell anybody. You promised.
J.R.: She's my sister.
Amanda: What if Adam finds out?
Colby: I have no intention of telling him.
Adam: You little snake. You son of a bitch.
Amanda: Look, I think we all know what would happen if Adam found out that I was carrying J.R.'s child. This is hard enough for me as it is without him breathing down my neck with this army of lawyers waiting to pounce on this child as soon as it's born.
J.R.: We're all in sync on that. Nobody wants that to happen.
Colby: Amanda, I'd never tell.
Adam: You knew, didn't you?
Pete: Mr. Chandler, sir --
Colby: Oh, God.
J.R.: Have you worked everything out with Ryan and Greenlee?
Amanda: No, that's what I came to tell you.
J.R.: You changed your mind about the adoption?
Amanda: No, Ryan and Greenlee don't think that the timing is right for them. I have to find another couple.
J.R.: Oh. That's -- that's too bad.
Colby: Let him go, Dad.
Pete: He just attacked me for no reason.
Adam: No reason? No reason? You got my daughter pregnant, you filthy weasel.
Colby: He what?
Pete: I did? I -- I mean, no. No, no, no, we haven't even --
Colby: Dad, don't be ridiculous. He didn't get me pregnant.
Adam: Well, then who did?
Pete: Yeah, who?
Adam: Don't -- don't lie to me. Don't lie. I -- I heard you -- I heard you talking to J.R. about it.
Colby: I'm not pregnant, Dad. You heard us talking about someone else.
Pete: Can you let go of me now, please?
Adam: Then who were you talking about?
Colby: Nobody. It's none of your business.
Zach: Gabrielle's a beautiful baby. She's very sweet.
Kendall: Of course, she is. Look at her father and her mother.
Zach: Don't do that. She has parents. She has two mothers, and, yes, she's part of our family, and I'm the uncle, and you're the aunt.
Kendall: It's a lot to take in, and I have no sense of time passed. So much has happened.
Zach: I know. You still want to see the boys, or --
Kendall: Yes, yes, please.
Zach: All right, I'll call Rachael.
Kendall: How long are they staying?
Kendall: Bianca and Reese and their baby?
Zach: I don't know. They're going to stick around for a while.
David: Time for a quick checkup.
David: How are you feeling?
Bianca: How did she take it? Is she ok?
Zach: Yeah, no, she's great. I think, uh, she took it well. It's going to be fine. I promise.
Kendall: So, how am I?
David: Well, you tell me. Your vitals all check out. Your pulse is a little elevated.
Kendall: Interesting news on the home front.
David: Really? Something stressful?
Kendall: Some people might call it that.
David: All right, that's not good. I don't want you to have to deal with any stress right now.
Kendall: You forget who my family is. But you remember me. I'm tougher than I look.
David: That may be the case, but you've been through some very intense experiences lately. Just dealing with a donated heart can take some getting used to, especially siblings. Now, it's not uncommon for there to be some psychological aftereffects, so is there anything you'd like to talk about? Maybe some feelings that you find confusing?
Kendall: I'm very sad about Josh. He was a tortured soul. And now, his tortured heart is inside of me.
David: All right, that's a good place to start. You have to stop thinking of this as his heart. It's yours now.
Kendall: I -- I'd be dead if it weren't for him. I'm grateful that he could help me survive. Past that, no bad thoughts or weird feelings. Just dealing with the realization I've been gone for way too long.
David: You're doing remarkably well, though. No signs of infection or rejection. You should be back on your feet in no time. But I meant what I said. No stress.
Kendall: Do I look stressed?
David: Well, let's keep it that way.
Kendall: How's Babe reacting to you being back in town?
David: That's it for the questions. I want you to get some rest, ok?
Bianca: Can I see her?
David: All right. First, I just warned her about stress, and now I'm going to do the same for you, ok?
David: All right.
Bianca: Hey. I'm so sorry that you had to find out like this. I wanted to tell you. I mean, that's why I came back to Pine Valley. I just didn't count on what happened.
Kendall: Of course, you didn't.
Bianca: It's all my fault. I was -- I was supposed to let Zach know. It was a very difficult pregnancy, and --
Kendall: You're safe. You're safe now, Binks, and you're getting married, and you've got another beautiful daughter.
Bianca: Yeah, I do. I can't wait for you to meet her. And Reese has been so amazing through all of it. I mean, I'm happy. I'm in love, and now, you're awake. Just in time to come to our wedding. I mean, this is what I prayed for. I missed you so much at the christening.
Kendall: The christening. Well, was Zach the godfather?
Bianca: Yeah, and, um, we would like you to be the godmother. We have pictures.
Kendall: I'm glad.
Bianca: Zach has been so wonderful. I mean, he's had the weight of the world on his shoulders, obviously, but he's been so strong and so good to me and Reese and Gabrielle. Reese and I were planning to move back to Paris after the wedding, but she agreed to stay with me and Gabrielle and Miranda. We can all be a family again.
Krystal: Angie? Uh, is Tad here?
Angie: No, he's not. He's out looking for Kathy.
Krystal: What? Oh, my God, the -- the police car that I saw down the street?
Angie: She -- she went missing a little while ago. They're out searching the neighborhood.
Krystal: Oh, God.
Angie: We don't know if she wandered off or was taken.
Krystal: Taken? Who would have taken her?
Angie: Well, you should know the answer to that. I heard he took Emma Lavery once, tried to convince Dixie the girl was her daughter.
Krystal: Oh, no. You cannot possibly believe that David would kidnap Kathy. That is crazy.
Angie: You think?
Tad: Where is she?
David: Get your hands off me!
Tad: Where the hell is my daughter?
Jesse: Tad, Tad, Tad! Take it easy, take it easy.
David: What the hell is he talking about?
Tad: Like you don't know Kathy's missing. Where is she?
David: I have no idea.
Tad: You took her, you took --
Jesse: Wait, Tad, Tad --
David: I'm telling you! Get your hands off me, Martin. Calm him down, or else I'm going to have security throw him out. No, I don't know what happened to your kid, all right? I didn't take her, and if she's missing, why are you bothering with me instead of out there looking for her?
Jesse: Because of your history. Where have you been today?
David: At home and here.
Tad: It's a game. It's just one big game for you, isn't it?
David: Do you know something? Instead of coming after me, why don't you take a good, hard look at yourself in the mirror? Figure out how you could lose your daughter in the first place. Maybe she took a cue from your wife and left.
Tad: I didn't lose Krystal.
David: Oh, yeah, right, right. Just like you didn't lose Dixie. You starting to see a pattern here, Chief? They all leave this clown eventually, apparently even before they grow up. No, I have no idea what happened to his kid, all right? I've been here the entire time from the moment I got the call Kendall Slater woke up from her coma. If you don't believe me, check with the desk and get the hell out of my hospital.
Jesse: Come on, come on, come on -- hey, hey, hey. Listen, this is not going to bring Kathy back, all right? Let's just go. Come on, come on.
J.R.: So, what now?
Amanda: I don't know. I guess I find an adoption attorney. I'll research it.
J.R.: Look, you don't need to rush. You don't have to make this decision tomorrow. I got a lawyer friend. I'll give him a call. I'm sure he'll give me some names of some great adoption attorneys.
Amanda: What is your father doing here?
J.R.: I don't know. He showed up right before you did.
Amanda: You know, he's creeping me out. Talk to you later.
J.R.: Look, Amanda --
Adam: So. What's Amanda up to these days?
Reese: Zach, about the conversation that we had before Kendall woke up?
Zach: Yeah, we never got to finish.
Reese: And we don't need to.
Zach: All right, here's the thing.
Reese: No, look, look, I -- I was upset. I was really upset about my mother, and it just -- it doesn't matter anymore, and like you said, I mean, it is normal to have feelings about somebody else, and no one got hurt because nothing got acted on, and I just -- we should just forget about it and leave it there, ok?
Erica: Well, you two seem very serious.
Zach: Bianca is in there testing the waters.
Bianca: Well, she seems ok with it all.
Erica: Well, of course, she does. She loves you. Ok, it's my turn. Lots to catch up on.
Erica: Hi. So, you heard the tale of how your new, little niece came to be.
Erica: I must say that everyone is relieved, because you've accepted things so well.
Kendall: Are they?
Erica: Well, yes. I mean, Bianca was very worried that you would be so upset with her that you may never forgive her. I'm really glad you've accepted it because, I mean, my goodness, a new baby in the family? That's what's important. A new Kane woman. It's a blessing, really, and as time goes by, I'm sure that --
Kendall: Shut up, Mom, and tell me what you really think.
Erica: Well, Reese hasn't been exactly forthcoming with your sister.
Kendall: Look, Mom. Would you stop tiptoeing around it, please? Just give me the facts.
Erica: Reese neglected to tell your sister that she had been engaged once before. To a man.
Kendall: What? She's bisexual?
Erica: I don't know. Both your sister and Reese deny it. Reese says that it was a mistake, that it was pushed on her by her parents, and Bianca seems to have accepted that.
Kendall: What else?
Erica: Look, anything else is just bad feelings, and I really do think that you need to be the judge for yourself, so just watch how Bianca and Reese act together and watch how Reese acts when she's not with Bianca.
Kendall: You mean how she acts when she's with Zach.
Colby: I'm really sorry. I don't know why he jumped to an off-the-wall conclusion like that.
Pete: Oh, no, it's ok. I mean, he's just being a protective father. Probably doesn't know that we don't see each other anymore. Much less, you know?
Colby: I've missed having you around. As friends. You been ok?
Pete: Yeah. Yeah, I've been hanging out, hitting the clubs. Haven't met my Lois Lane yet, but there are a few potential candidates.
Pete: No. I lied. Life sucks, actually. I really, really miss you, Colby.
Adam: Your sister tells me you're keeping up with all your AA meetings.
J.R.: Day by day.
Adam: And if he were old enough to understand, Little Adam would be proud of you, too.
J.R.: That's the only reason I keep trying.
Adam: The only reason?
J.R.: Well, that and my own messed-up existence.
Adam: Yeah, who knows what the future may bring?
J.R.: What exactly are you dancing around?
Adam: Amanda Dillon.
J.R.: Amanda's a friend, a convenient date.
Adam: And she's pregnant with your child, isn't she?
Bianca: I have water, V8 V-Fusion --
Amanda: What were you doing anyway, running around the marina all by yourself? Where's Tad, your daddy?
Kathy: I was playing a game, hide-and-seek.
Amanda: Oh. So is he out there now looking for you?
Kathy: No. It's ok. I like it here. Can I stay?
Amanda: Well, I think we should probably call your daddy. I bet he's very worried about you.
Kathy: No, don't! Please don't call him. I don't want to go back.
Angie: Now that you've seen Jenny's ok, maybe you should head home. I'm sure Tad will be back soon.
Krystal: No, no. I'm going to stay right here. I'm going to help find Kathy.
Angie: Are you sure she's not at Wildwind?
Krystal: You are not accusing me?
Angie: No, but the man you live with is quite capable of it. I mean, he's shown over and over again that he won't stop at anything to hurt Tad.
Krystal: You do not know what you're talking about. You don't David at all.
Angie: He's evil. That much I do know. He deliberately set out to destroy Tad's marriage, and you were weak enough to let him do it.
Krystal: Oh, I'm weak? How dare you judge me, Angie. You don't know what I've gone through. You have two children who are alive and healthy.
Angie: You know, as horrible as it is, losing a child is no excuse for turning your back on the most caring man in the world and jumping into bed with a snake.
Krystal: Well, don't you worry about me, all right? You got enough to worry about at home, don't you? You call me weak? You're the one who let your husband's ex-lover move in with you.
Jesse: All right, all right. Expand the perimeter and put out an Amber Alert.
Krystal: This is just awful. I am so, so sorry.
Tad: Is Jenny all right?
Angie: Did you talk to David? Did he admit anything?
Tad: Well, we saw him, but I don't think he had anything to do with this.
Krystal: You see? Now, what could've happened to her?
Tad: I don't know. I don't know what to do.
Angie: We'll keep looking until we find her.
Jesse: Krystal, you were here earlier, right?
Krystal: Yeah, yeah, I came by to get the rest of my things.
Jesse: How did Kathy seem then?
Krystal: She seemed fine.
Tad: Well, wait a minute. That's it. I mean, she was upset about Krystal moving out, but I could've sworn she was ok after I spoke with her.
Krystal: Ah, she ran up and hugged me when I got here.
Jesse: Anything else happen?
Krystal: Tad and I had a fight.
Jesse: About what?
Krystal's voice: You won't let me see the girls?
Tad's voice: Nope. Jenny's asleep, and Kathy's obviously having a bad time. If you go upstairs right now, all you're going to do is set her off all over again.
Krystal: I have every right to see them, Tad.
Tad: Not according to the judge, and, if I were you, I'd be thankful I let you see them at all, considering the company you're keeping.
Krystal: Don't you push me, Tad! If you do, I swear, I will take Jenny, and I will disappear.
Tad: Jenny means more to me than anything else in this world. I'm not about to let you take her anywhere.
Krystal: Oh, my God, Tad. She heard us.
Kathy: Krystal was going to leave with Jenny and never come back, and Daddy said that Jenny meant more to him than anything.
Amanda: Honey, you know what? Sometimes when grownups are angry, they say things that they don't mean. Your daddy loves you so much, and I bet he's worried sick right now that you ran away. Oh, oh, honey, it's ok. It's going to be ok.
Kathy: I want a mommy who stays and loves me forever.
J.R.: Amanda is none of your business.
Adam: She is, if she's carrying my grandchild.
J.R: Wrong. She's none of your business, period.
Adam: So she is pregnant?
J.R.: Yeah. She's pregnant, but she's giving it up for adoption, and so help me, if you try to stop her --
Adam: Despite the fact that she's trash, she's still carrying a Chandler child.
J.R.: You leave her alone. I'm warning you.
Adam: No, no, I'm not going to let you dismiss this. That's Chandler blood flowing through that child's veins, and I'm not going to let you sweep it under the rug because you're feeling guilty.
Adam: How long has Babe been dead? And you've already knocked up her best friend. That is tacky, my friend. I mean, very tacky. But one thing is certain. We've got to get that child away from Amanda Dillon.
J.R.: Don't even try it.
Erica: I've said enough, and I'm the first to admit that I could be a Tad overprotective, but I will be very interested in your take on things.
Zach: Hey, they're asleep.
Erica: Well, hi.
Kendall: My big boys.
Zach: Hey, watch yourself.
Kendall: My big boys, come here, come here. Hi.
Zach: A little tired.
Kendall: Hi. Oh, my goodness. They're so big. Mommy's missed you so much.
Kendall: Come here, my boy. Let me -- his hand. Let me touch his hand. Hi. They're so big.
[Zach and Kendall chuckle]
Kendall: Um, is Gabrielle here, too?
Zach: Yeah, she's outside.
Kendall: I'd love to meet her, as well.
Tad: I told you she was going to get upset!
Krystal: You are just as much to blame as I am.
Tad: I told you --
Krystal: You won't let me see my daughter, and then you get a restraining order the second I walk out the door --
Jesse: Hey, hey, hey! Cut it out! Fighting is not going to bring her back. Now, we need to focus if we're going to find her.
Amanda: I was just about to call you. You need to find Tad.
J.R.: What's she doing here?
Amanda: She ran away. Tad and Krystal got in a fight, and she got upset and left.
J.R.: Tad must be going crazy.
Amanda: I changed my mind.
Amanda: The baby. I know I may not make the best mom, but I don't ever want our son or daughter to think that a parent abandoned them, and I know there are probably a lot of great potential moms and dads out there, but there is only one way that I can make sure to watch out for this baby every day. I want to keep it. I want to keep our baby.
J.R.: That's great. That's really great.
[David listens from outside the cabin door]
Bianca: Gabrielle, there's somebody very special that I want you to meet. This is your Auntie Kendall.
Kendall: She's gorgeous. Well, hello there, lucky lady.
[Kendall is disturbed when she sees Zach's look of pride in his baby]
