Randi: Does it look good here?
Krystal: Yes, perfect.
Amanda: All right. Um, oh, we're out of staples. I'll go see maintenance.
Randi: Oh, I'll go grab them. You've been on your feet all afternoon.
Krystal: Why don't you take a break, huh?
Amanda: I'm fine, really, spectacular, in fact, now that the morning sickness is gone.
Krystal: Yeah, I remember. That was a hallelujah moment for me both times I was pregnant. Hey, I really appreciate your help.
Amanda: Tomorrow, this will be open and saving lives. Babe would be really proud if she could see this.
Krystal: Yes, she would have been embarrassed about all the fuss we were making, but, yeah, she would have been proud. It was really was generous of her father to make this happen.
Amanda: Yes, it was.
Krystal: Amanda, what exactly is going on between you and David?
David: Thanks for coming, J.R. Have a seat.
J.R.: What do you want?
David: A truce. An end to the animosity between us. We need to do it. For Babe.
Jackson: Hey. Thanks for coming down to see me. I know you've got that benefit at the hospital. I don't want to impose.
Erica: Don't be silly. I'm here as long as you need me.
Jackson: Thanks. I just wanted to -- I just needed to talk to someone.
Erica: I heard that you went back up to Connecticut to the river.
Jackson: I wanted to say goodbye to my daughter. But I couldn't do it.
Kendall: I'm sure Bianca has others. Trust me. That child will never have to go without. Zach, I know you miss Gabrielle, but I'm sure if you give it time, eventually --
Zach: That I could just what? Get over it? You think it's that easy.
Kendall: None of this has been easy.
Zach: Well, then, stop being so glib about it. Whether you like it or not, and I know you don't, she's my daughter. That's not going to change.
Angie: Wow. Not that those pretty eyes needed it, but you look very nice.
Annie: Thank you. Thanks, Carla. You're the best.
Carla: Oh, it was no problem. Take care, Annie.
Annie: Bye. Hey, I'm nervous.
Angie: I know, but going back to Oak Haven is part of your healing process.
Annie: No, well, I'm actually nervous because Emma's coming today.
Angie: She is?
Annie: Yeah, Aidan's going to bring her by before they take me back to Oak Haven. I'm excited though, too. You know, I get to talk to her again, and tell her that Mommy's going to get better, and that we're going to be together again soon.
Annie: Hi. Where -- where is she?
Aidan: Emma -- Emma's not here.
Annie: What -- what does that mean?
Aidan: I'm sorry, Annie. She couldn't -- she couldn't come.
Annie: No. No, she has to come. She has to come. I have to see her! You said you would help me! You lied! You're a liar! I hate you! You said you would help me!
Jackson: So when I got to the spot, it looked totally different. There were no lights or sirens or helicopters overhead. It was just an ordinary stretch of highway, nothing to mark the spot. I almost didn't recognize it. I wanted to -- I wanted to say something. I wanted to say a prayer for Greenlee, but when I opened my mouth, nothing came out. So I got out of the car, and I thought I'd walk down to the river. I knelt on the bank there, and I don't know why, but I -- I guess maybe to feel her presence or something, but I put my hand in that water. It was so cold it hurt. And I thought, that pain is the last thing that Greenlee felt.
Kendall: I never said you should forget about her. Just that maybe you need to --
Zach: That maybe what? I will always think about her, think whether she's healthy or not, or she's growing or not, whether she's happy or not, what her voice sounds like, what her laugh sounds like, and how beautiful she is. I'm always going to think about that. I know I wasn't supposed to get involved and get attached. But it didn't work out that way. And even now, when she's thousands of miles away, I will always think about her. She'll be right here with me.
Kendall: Well, if you miss her so much, maybe you should go to her. Better yet, find Reese, and take her with you.
Zach: Oh, God. Do you ever listen to anything I say? No, right? I don't want Reese. I've told you that. I want you. I love you. And regardless of where we are right now, what we're going through, that's never going to change. You can either fight it, keep pushing me away, or not. Your choice.
Amanda: What? Me and David -- I'm sorry, it's out of left field. What are you saying?
Krystal: Well, it's just that I have been seeing a lot of you two together lately.
Krystal: Mmm, like yesterday, here at the hospital. David said it was about you volunteering, but I kind of got the feeling there was more to it than that.
Amanda: You're right. There was. David was making it very clear that he does not approve of me moving into the mansion. He thinks that it complicates Little A's life. It might confuse him since it's so soon after Babe's death.
Krystal: I see.
Amanda: But David is wrong. J.R. is all about his son, making his life picture-perfect.
Krystal: Of course. Well, I guess that's why I'm sensing something. That -- that clears it up. Got to get back to work.
J.R.: Haven't we already been down this road? Right after she died, you proclaiming that you wanted peace between you and my family, for Babe's sake? Then you demolished Tad's marriage, pushed Joe out of the way, tried to get Jake fired, Angie. Now you're lifting your leg and trying to expect me to believe that it's raining?
David: This is obviously about the opening tonight in Babe's honor. I believe she's going to be there in spirit, and I think it would mean a lot to her if we could show some common decency between us, making tonight an expression of our love and respect for her and her memory, instead of the usual petty differences and squabbles and ugly feelings. I'll tell you what, I will make you a promise to put aside our differences and try to get along, for tonight, at least. Think you can do it?
David: You crazy?
Adam: Take your claws off my son!
J.R.: Dad, Dad!
Frankie: Hey, this place looks great. You all have been busy.
Randi: It's getting there.
Amanda: Hey, uh, can I steal him for a second?
Randi: I've got banners to hang. Just don't keep him for too long, ok?
Frankie: What's up?
Amanda: I just -- I'm getting a little paranoid, maybe, but did you cover your tracks when you altered my records? I mean --
Frankie: Oh, yeah, don't worry about it. I was very careful. There's nothing in your chart that's going to give away the fact that David's the baby's father, but that doesn't guarantee he's going to stop digging.
Amanda: I know. He already threatened to get a DNA test.
Frankie: Well, you've got to make sure that never happens. Look, just know that I've got your back, and I'll do everything I can to keep it a secret.
Amanda: Thanks. Really, you put your job on the line for me, and don't think I don't know that. I promise you, David will never know that you helped me.
Frankie: Yeah, well, don't worry about it. I'll protect myself.
Amanda: Good, you don't want David Hayward holding something like that over your head.
Frankie: No, you don't. Amanda, are you sure this is just paranoia, or does David have something over you?
J.R.: Dad, just back off, all right?
Adam: What do you mean "back off"? Weren't you just trying to shake hands with that bastard?
David: He was showing a modicum of compassion and intelligence, traits he obviously inherited from his mother. Thanks for understanding. I'll see you tonight.
Adam: He's setting you up. He's got something he's planning, something -- something destructive.
J.R.: Dad -- Dad, you just need to get a grip, ok? He was simply asking us to have a little bit of civility tonight, an agreement to not cause a scene like the one you just made.
Adam: That cockroach is still trying to steal my grandson.
J.R.: He's not going to get my son, Dad. And if he's hasn't figured that by now, then Hayward's a fool.
Erica: Here, Jack. Why don't you drink this? It's warm. It'll warm you up, maybe help take some of those thoughts away.
Jackson: I had the strength to go in there, but not to say goodbye. Why is that?
Erica: Because you just weren't ready yet, that's all. And when you are, you will be able to. Look, would you like to go upstairs and spend the evening together, talk? There's a -- there's a second bedroom if you'd like to stay the night.
Jackson: What you've already done, coming down here, just listening to me, is more than I think you'll ever know. And thank you for your kind offer, but I think I'm going to be alone tonight.
Erica: Jack --
Erica: I'm here whenever you need me, and if you change your mind, please, just call.
Kendall: I don't want to fight.
Zach: Then what? What do you want?
Kendall: I don't know.
Zach: I'm going to work.
Kendall: You'll be at the hospital, right, for the benefit?
Zach: Yeah. Wouldn't miss it. We'll just keep smiling, right? We wouldn't want to disappoint Pine Valley.
Annie: I need to see her. You said that I could!
Aidan: Annie, shh, please.
Annie: I want to see her, because you said that you'd help me.
Aidan: Stop, stop. It's all right, fine. I've got this. Just calm down for a minute, please. Just calm down. Get back in bed. Annie, I want to help you, but I can't. I can't when you lose control like that. I can't when you lash out. Sometimes in life, things don't always work out the way we want them to. You have to accept that.
Annie: I miss her. I miss my little girl.
Aidan: I know you do, and I'm sure Emma misses you, too, all right, but Ryan has custody of her right now, and he doesn't want Emma to get hurt.
Annie: I would never hurt her.
Aidan: Look at the way you just acted. How does Ryan know that you're not going to snap like that in front of Emma? That's why he wouldn't let her come, not yet. Listen, you're going to make it to Oak Haven today. And you're going to have to work really, really hard with your new doctor. You have to find yourself again. You have to find the mother that Emma loves, and fight to stay in control, all right? If you can learn to do that, then you're going to see Emma real soon, I promise.
Amanda: Ok, you're right. David does have something, not connected to the baby. He's kind of blackmailing me.
Frankie: Drama. How can I help?
Amanda: No, I -- I have to deal with this one on my own.
Frankie: Yeah, but haven't you dealt with enough stress already?
Amanda: Yeah, but you have helped me enough already.
Jake: You guys look very serious. Let me guess, David Hayward?
Frankie: Oh, see, now you've done it. You spoke his name. Don't you know that when you speak a demon's name, they always appear?
Krystal: What do you think, huh?
David: Wow, it looks -- it looks great, really. Babe would love it. So, have you had much help?
Krystal: Oh, yeah, yeah. Amanda and Randi have been workhorses.
Krystal: She sure does have a lot of energy for somebody in her condition.
David: Yeah, she is a tough one.
Randi: I didn't realize how late it was. We need to get home, change, and get back here.
Frankie: Right, right, ok. Hey, see you in a bit?
Jake: Um, can I ask you something? Did you tell J.R. that Hayward was blackmailing you?
Amanda: No, I couldn't. He was going on and on about how he trusts me, he needs me. I was dying inside. I couldn't tell him that I'm a lying rat.
Jake: Come on, you're not the rat. Hayward is the rat.
Amanda: Well, now he's demanding that I really put it to him tonight. I'm supposed to make J.R. start drinking, and then make it look like Little A is in a dangerous environment.
Jake: I think you just need to come clean with J.R. honestly. Otherwise, David's just going to keep coming after you.
Amanda: Yeah, but that's not the only thing that David could take away from me, even if I came clean with J.R.
Jake: Well, what else -- what else -- wait a minute. You're not still worried about who the father is, are you? Oh, my God. Hayward? Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Amanda: Yeah, I know. Welcome to my hell.
Erica: Zach? You ok?
Zach: Yeah. I've got a meeting.
Erica: Zach, wait. I just want you to know that I -- I know what you're going through.
Zach: You do?
Erica: I do. I watched as you said goodbye to Gabrielle. I saw the pain in your eyes when you -- when you kissed her goodbye, and I -- I know that feeling. I went through the same thing with Bianca. When Travis got -- got custody of Bianca, I thought I would die when they took my little girl away from me. But I didn't die, and Bianca and I found each other again, and now we are closer than ever. I just don't want you to give up hope.
Zach: I'm sorry. You have no idea what I'm feeling right now.
J.R.: Wow! This is looking really great.
Krystal: Damn it, why do you keep staring at that woman?
David: I was watching J.R. We met at ConFusion. We agreed on a truce for tonight. Hey, hey, what's going on? You've been tense all day. What, now you're getting sensitive about Amanda?
Krystal: I -- I -- I don't know. I don't know.
David: Ok, all right, look, you've been working really hard, and everything looks spectacular, but I want you to have a good time tonight, ok? I mean, so that you don't get stressed out about nothing. So, here, I want you to take this, ok? That will help you relax. You deserve to have a good time tonight. We're here to celebrate Babe, and I promise you, tonight is going to be a night you never forget.
Adam: Thank you for coming. Have a seat?
Reese: Thank you. You said you had business you wanted to discuss.
Adam: Oh, yes, yes. I'm in the business of saving face.
Reese: Excuse me?
Reese: What is that?
Adam: That is a party dress. I would like you for to wear it tonight to a hospital function. I hope I can escort you there.
Reese: Uh, why?
Adam: Well, unlike the Kane women, I am honestly on your side. I hope you can accept that. I hope you can accept me as a friend.
Reese: Um -- I'm not really sure what you'd be getting out of this.
Adam: Same as you. Satisfaction. Like me, you have your pride. That's obvious. And tonight, you'd have an opportunity to demonstrate that pride, to show the Kane women that they can't take you down. I hope you'll let me escort you.
Krystal: Thank you so much for coming. Thank you. No, no, go ahead.
J.R.: Wow, you look -- wow.
Amanda: Thank you.
J.R.: Well, this is supposed to be about heart health. I think you're going to be, uh, killing a few guys tonight.
David: Yeah, yeah, you are. Men will be dropping like flies for you tonight.
Amanda: I will talk to you when you're done with the receiving line.
J.R.: You got it. Hi. How are you? Thank you so much for coming. Hey.
J.R.: Frankie and Randi, what's going on?
Frankie: What's up, man?
J.R.: Thank you so much for coming tonight, and thank you so much for all your help.
Randi: Oh, of course. It was my pleasure.
J.R.: Appreciate that. Absolutely.
Randi: It's for a great cause.
J.R.: Oh, yeah, yeah. Enjoy the party, guys.
Frankie: Thanks. Doctor.
David: Hello, Frankie.
Frankie: You've met Randi.
David: Yes, I have. It's good to see you again. You know, I can't help but feel as if I've seen you somewhere before. Were you an actress, by any chance?
Frankie: Hey, knock it off, Hayward. Listen, Hayward's just being an ass. Don't let him ruin your evening, ok?
Jake: Hi. You know, I saw you, and you had this "God, I could use a glass of sparkling water" look on your face, so here you go.
Amanda: Thanks. I wish it could be something stronger.
Jake: Yeah. Ok, so I've been thinking about your predicament.
Jake: Now, Frankie has been treating you, right? Does -- does he know?
Amanda: He knows David's the father. He's been helping me keep it a secret.
Jake: Ok, so he knows that Nancy has adjusted your charts, right? Which means he's adjusted your due date. Right, ok, wow.
Amanda: Yeah, I know. Please, don't make me feel bad about sucking so many people into my screw-ups, because I'm doing enough of that on my own.
Jake: No, no -- no, I'm not doing that at all. I'm just actually thinking -- do you realize how many people care about you? You do realize that, don't you?
Amanda: I do. I'm just afraid that it won't be enough.
David: Well, I just wanted to tell you how beautiful you look tonight. And to let you know how much I appreciate everything you've done. I also want you to relax. Have you taken any of those pills?
Krystal: No, not yet. I still have a lot of things to do, and I don't want to be too relaxed.
David: I love you. Only you have my heart -- just you. Remember that.
J.R.: Lovely to see you. Thank you so much for coming tonight.
J.R.: Hi. Enjoy the party, please.
Erica: Thank you. It's a very worthy cause.
J.R.: Sure is.
David: Oh, you look gorgeous tonight as usual.
Erica: Thank you.
David: And how is my patient doing?
Kendall: I'm, uh, feeling good. This event hits home, to say the least.
David: Yeah. I'm sorry Bianca couldn't make it. I hear she went back to Paris?
Kendall: Yeah. Um, excuse me. Zach should be here by now.
Erica: Actually, uh --
Erica: No, I -- I ran into him at the casino, and -- and he -- he just -- he doesn't seem to be in such a good place.
Kendall: Yes, I know. I know. He's upset about Gabrielle. But I -- I'm so sick of him and everyone else making me out to be the bad guy in this.
Erica: You're not.
Kendall: Well, everyone seems to be acting like I am, like it's my fault that -- that all the stuff went down with Bianca and Reese and the baby.
Erica: It's Reese's fault. And please, don't ever think for a minute that I feel any differently. I -- anyway, now that she's gone -- oh, no. Ok. I'll take care of this.
Kendall: No. No, no, no, no, Mom, let me.
Adam: Uh, red wine?
Reese: Um, yes, please, but --
Adam: I'll be right back.
Reese: Kendall, hello. Doesn't everyone look so vibrant and red?
Kendall: Why are you here?
Reese: I -- I came with Adam.
Kendall: No, why are you still in Pine Valley? Everyone assumed you would leave.
Reese: Well, then, everyone assumed wrong. I have responsibilities here, I have my contracts, I have building projects, and I can't just walk away from that.
Zach: Actually, you can.
Aidan: What are you thinking right now?
Annie: That you're right. I lose control. I think -- I think I get so afraid of the people I love being taken away from me that I freak out. I get like that. But I'm -- I'm going to work on that at Oak Haven, I promise.
Aidan: Good. I'm glad. I'm glad that you recognize it. It means that you're getting better.
Annie: And I am -- I don't hate you. I could never hate you.
Aidan: I know.
Annie: So, what, uh -- what happens to you now?
Aidan: What do you mean?
Annie: Well, I know you can't come back to Oak Haven with me. So what do you do? You have no one to go back to. Greenlee's gone.
Aidan: I got work.
Annie: Won't you be lonely?
Aidan: I'll be fine.
Annie: Well, I mean, if you do get lonely, and you can't come visit me for some reason, you can always e-mail me. They say they're allowing me, uh, supervised access to a computer at the hospital. So, I don't know, maybe we can stay in touch doing that. Maybe I could, um, help you feel not so alone.
Aidan: I'll do that.
Annie: Well, you helped me through a lot of stuff, so maybe I can help you, too.
Zach: So here's what I'm thinking. I'm going to get another architect to finish your projects, and I will pay out your contract.
Reese: That's very kind of you, Zach, but I have no intention of cutting and running just because Kendall wants to get rid of me.
Zach: Kendall's been through a lot. She doesn't need you breathing down her neck. You understand that.
Reese: Yeah, and you should understand this has nothing to do with either of you. I'm staying for me. Live with it, both of you.
Erica: What are you doing here with Reese?
Adam: Oh, I'm helping her get her footing again, which is no easy task after being dragged through the dirt by the women of Kane.
Erica: So, you're here with her, what, as some sort of a lame attempt to get back at me for all the times I've refused your advances?
Adam: Oh, tell me you're insanely jealous. Tell me you are, even if you aren't.
Erica: Oh, I hate you when you're like this.
Erica: Vengeful, manipulative. Well, listen to me, Adam Chandler -- that woman is a snake.
Adam: Oh, relax, Erica. The only snake in this room just took the podium.
David: Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please? First, I want to thank each and every one of you for coming here this evening. This beautiful sea of red I see before me is the perfect reminder for all women for the need to improve your heart health, so that you might be able to live longer and stronger lives. Now, I especially want to thank Campbell's for sponsoring and supporting the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" campaign, and for their generous donations here this evening. Now, for those of you drinking something different out there, you should have had a V-8. Much healthier than what most of you are drinking. Now, on a personal note, I want to say that this evening has special significance for me, because it celebrates the opening of the new cardiac wing here at the hospital, named in memory of my late daughter, Babe Carey Chandler. So from my heart to your heart, and to all those women's hearts we're hoping to keep healthy, I want to thank you once again for coming here, and for your generous donations. Now, to tell you more about the "Go Red for Women" campaign, I'd like to introduce J.R. Chandler.
J.R.: Thank you. Thank you all very much. There's a reason why stop signs are painted red. It's a color that gets your attention.
David: You really should be seated after everything you've done today. Make it happen tonight, Amanda. Get J.R. drunk, you bring him home, and you make it look like he tried to take Junior, Little A, out for a drunken joyride. You understand? Otherwise, J.R. is going to find out what a rotten little friend you've been.
J.R.: Now your presence and your support, along with corporate sponsors like Campbell's, will result in saving many, many lives in the future through the awareness and education to women in America and around the world. Now I'd like to thank the volunteers and the sponsors one more time, and maybe we could hear a few words from Krystal Carey, Babe Carey Chandler's mother. Krystal, would you like to come up here and say a few words? Thank you.
Krystal: Thank you. Thank you all so much. Thank you.
[Krystal melts her tranquilizers in a glass of wine and leaves it on a tray]
Erica: You broke Bianca's heart. You may have ruined my daughter Kendall's marriage. Because of you, Bianca has left town with her children, and you are still here?
Reese: I have my reasons.
Erica: I don't give a damn about your reasons. I don't want to hear your reasons. I want you to leave. And if you decide not to, trust me, your life is going to be a bigger hell than it already is.
[Reese picks up Krystal's glass and drinks the spiked wine]
Aidan: Some people are very -- they're very protective of themselves, you know? They're very guarded. It's hard to know what makes them tick. I'm one of those people. They don't want you to know what they're thinking. Whereas you, you're the opposite. And you've opened up your heart and soul to me in ways that no one's ever done before.
Annie: But I lost my mind.
Aidan: You misplaced it, that's all. But you're finding it back. See, the problem is that sometimes we, um -- we open up our heart to the wrong people. You've got a big heart, Annie. You're a beautiful, loving, giving, warm person. And that makes you vulnerable. And I never want to see you hurt like that again.
Angie: I'm sorry to interrupt, but, Annie, the Oak Haven people are here.
Krystal: And for my daughter. Thank you.
J.R.: Thank you, Krystal. So many other people were involved in making tonight possible. The decorations were donated by --
Jake: I just wanted to tell you, I think you're a saint for trying to help out Amanda like that.
Frankie: Yeah, well, now I'm a little concerned, because if she told you that I altered the charts, then who else would she tell?
Jake: She only told me -- confided in me, because she knows it would be a cold day in hell before I ever told Hayward that she's carrying his child.
J.R.: Food and drink tonight, which I'm sure you've all been enjoying -- the Swanson's chunk chicken.
[Krystal overhears Jake and Frankie's conversation]
Angie: All right, she's dressed, ready to go.
Aidan: Can I go in and say good-bye?
Angie: Yeah, sure.
Aidan: You look beautiful.
Annie: I'm scared.
Aidan: It's going to be different this time. You'll have a nicer room, more lenient visitation. I promise.
Annie: Will you hold me?
Annie: I'm ready to go now.
Aidan: She's finally going to get the help that she deserves. What?
Angie: You have very strong feelings for her, don't you?
Aidan: Yeah. Yeah, I guess I do.
J.R.: Red is the color of passion. It also represents love, and one only has to look to Valentine's Day to make that connection. But tonight it honors --
Krystal: It's David's child, isn't it?
J.R.: Babe was a remarkable woman, the kind of woman that the "Go Red" campaign is reaching out to.
Zach: Hey. Come here. What's wrong? Tell me it's not Reese again. This has got to stop.
Kendall: No, it's not about Reese. I don't give a damn about Reese. I looked at that, and I thought of Greenlee, how we did this event together last year. And now she's gone. She's gone because of me, because I killed her.
Zach: Stop doing that to yourself.
Kendall: Who else is there to blame? I was the one behind that wheel. I was the one who ran her off the road. She is dead because of me. Me.
J.R.: God bless you all for being here, and thank you very much. Give yourselves a round of applause.
[Reese overhears the conversation between Zach and Kendall]
