Jake: It's ok. It's going to be ok.
Amanda: You promise?
Jake: Ah, no, I don't promise, but it sounds good, doesn't it?
J.R.: What the hell's going on here?
Jake: Uh-oh, you caught me. I was -- I was trying to steal your girlfriend. Actually, I did come here to ask her to dinner and a movie, but she kept going on and on about you and how much you mean to her, and then -- and then I see she's upset for some reason. Why is that?
J.R.: You better get out of here before I dent your face.
Jake: Unfortunately, Amanda is pregnant with your child, and if I see that she gets any more upset than this, I'm going to dent a lot more than just your face.
Amanda: I'm wiped. I'm going to go to bed.
J.R.: No, no, not until you explain some things to me. Don't give me that clueless look. You shoved my dead wife in my face on purpose, and I'd like to know why.
David: Say it again.
Krystal: I can't wait to marry you.
David: I'm telling you -- you have such good timing.
David: Mm-hmm. I was going to propose all over again.
Krystal: Oh, well, then I've saved you the trouble, didn't I? I would be honored to be your wife, under one condition.
Taylor: Ahem, you got room for one more?
Tad: You bet.
Frankie: What are you still doing here? I thought you were done before the benefit.
Brot: Ah, the supervisor asked me to pick up an extra shift.
Frankie: More like you volunteered. What's up?
Brot: I told Taylor I had to work.
Frankie: You're avoiding her.
Brot: And what's so bad about that?
Reese: Look, I don't care what you think of me, ok? I just know that what I heard you say I will not use against you.
Adam: She may not, but I certainly will.
Zach: After all this time, still digging for dirt. That's sad.
Adam: Your girlfriend came to me.
Kendall: No way in hell will you hold this over us. I will go to the police right now and tell them I was the one driving.
Adam: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. You're going to lie to the police, admit you lied about a fatal accident? That's going to create all kinds of problems and new charges. Are you willing to stand by and watch your wife go off to prison for running over her best friend? On the other hand, if Kendall was in the slammer, you'd be free to pursue other pleasures.
David: So there's an asterisk attached? You'll be my wife if --
Krystal: I love you, and I want to go full speed ahead with this wedding.
David: Ok, but --
Krystal: You have to promise me one thing first.
Krystal: I want you to look me in the eye and swear that you won't use this marriage to take J.R.'s son, and no more secrets, ok? I want everything to be out in the open.
David: Well, that's actually two conditions. So do I get some extra time to think it over? I swear I will never use our marriage to try and get Little Adam.
Krystal: And the other part?
David: I already told you. I'm going to work really hard to be more open. Why would I want to hide anything from you, the woman who knows me better than anyone, who saved my life? I need you, Krystal, as a friend, a lover, and now my wife.
Krystal: Well, then let's hurry up and get hitched.
Tad: Ha, ha, ha! That is a winner in any country.
Taylor: You're on a serious roll.
Tad: No, no, I am now, but before you showed up, I was down to my last couple of chips. I'm going to start calling you my -- my lucky charm.
Taylor: I don't believe in luck. People make choices and things happen. I've learned that.
Tad: Really? So I'm guessing you're the kind of person that doesn't believe we've got angels nudging us in the right direction.
Taylor: No, I think we decide things. Soldier goes left, and he's fine, he goes right, he gets blown to bits. There's no magic in that. And I'll tell you something, I'm nobody's good-luck charm. And you say something really nice to me, and I lash out at you. So, I'm sorry. I'll going to go harass somebody else.
Tad: No, no, no, stick around. No, no, no, look, I'm winning. I'm up, stick around. You can either rip me some more or play a couple of hands or tell me what's going on with Brot.
Taylor: Where'd that come from?
Tad: Lucky guess.
Taylor: Well, I don't want to talk about that. I'm your lucky charm. Give me some. You can deal me in.
Tad: There you go. Now you're talking.
Brot: The thing is, Taylor and I are having issues, bedroom issues.
Brot: Every time Taylor and I get close to each other, and it starts to move in that direction, Brot just takes off.
Frankie: Hmm. Yeah, well, when I got back from Iraq, I took off into the woods, couldn't really deal with people at all. I couldn't deal with anything.
Brot: But you're with Randi.
Frankie: Yeah, but it didn't happen overnight.
Brot: But it happened.
Frankie: Slowly, very slowly. Randi and I were together for like six months before we --
Brot: Are you serious? Why?
Frankie: It's complicated, but we got past it with a lot of time and patience, a whole lot of patience. Bottom line? Change comes from action. You have to decide when the time is, and just go for it.
Brot: I don't know, Hub.
Frankie: Do you love each other?
Brot: Come on, man, you know we do.
Frankie: Right, then Taylor's going to be right there with you. Look, my shift just ended. You can sit here with your bedpan or you can come grab a drink with your boy.
Brot: Why -- why -- why do we have to bring the bedpan into this? Now, I'll go, only if I get the first round.
Frankie: Only? You better get the first round.
Brot: Yeah, let's go, man.
J.R.: How stupid do you think I am? "Oh, God, J.R., I put in the wrong disc. Oops, there's Babe, all cued up." That was an accident? Huh? Answer me.
Amanda: I was rushing. I didn't do it on purpose.
J.R.: No, because you'd never use a DVD to get anything that you want -- like, I don't know, $5 million and a yacht? You put that disc in there for a reason.
Amanda: Why would I do that? I -- I know how much Babe meant to you. I loved her, too. I know how painful that would be.
J.R.: Exactly. You know that I'd fall apart and reach for the scotch.
Amanda: Hello, I am the one that just stopped you from drinking. I took the glass out of your hand.
J.R.: Yeah, and then Jake Martin showed up here. You're up to something. You got guilt all over your face. And you're not going anywhere until you own up.
Amanda: Ok. You're right. I put the DVD in because I wanted you to drink.
Kendall: Zach, stop, stop. You make one more threat, and I will choke you till you drop.
Adam: Oh, are you going to add assault to this litany of charges you're already facing -- obstruction of justice, manslaughter, vehicular homicide?
Reese: Ok, leave them alone, Adam.
Adam: Do you realize how much damage you would cause if you were arrested? The publicity alone would destroy Fusion, period, not to mention any future bestsellers that you might come up with, and you could --
Zach: What do you want?
Adam: What do I want? You want me to keep quiet about the biggest conspiracy that ever was. Well, I'm afraid I'm going to have to get back to you on that. You ready?
Reese: You go ahead.
Adam: I'll wait up for you.
Kendall: You're staying with the Chandlers?
Reese: I am living there temporarily, yeah.
Kendall: Why are you still here?
Reese: Because I wanted to apologize, ok? Look, I had no idea that Adam was going to do that.
Kendall: No, genius, why are you still in Pine Valley? And don't give that B.S. about contracts.
Reese: Ok, you know what? I would love to be on a plane right now back to Paris, but I can't go, not yet, because Bianca needs time and space, and for some crazy reason I feel like I need to prove myself to you. I need you to believe that I love your sister more than anything.
Kendall: You don't love my sister, and you sure as Hell aren't sorry for what you told Adam. Why would you be? He put you up in this big fancy house where you can plan your next move on my husband.
Zach: We're leaving.
Kendall: No, no, you know what? She's the one who should leave, but she can't. Why? Because of you. It's quite pathetic, actually. And you know what? If you guys want each other, fine, great. Have at it. Go for it. I don't give a damn.
Reese: Would you just wait.
Taylor: We used to play cards all the time in country because there was nothing else to do.
Taylor: But mostly poker. Hey, there was this one time, it was me and Brot, Boots was there, a bunch of guys. Anyway, we're playing Texas Hold 'Em --
Tad: You actually know somebody called "Boots"?
Taylor: Yeah, he had a hygiene issue in the foot area. It was not good. So anyway, game's getting intense, pot's growing and growing, and these guys are dropping like flies. Shooter, he folded, and Digger was -- he was out. But it's me and Brot. We're emptying our pockets, and watches are coming off, you know? All of a sudden, we hear sniper fire, and I mean close, maybe 100 yards out or so, but we keep playing.
Tad: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hang on, just a second. Oh, you -- you kept playing, even under fire?
Taylor: Well, I thought I had him. So then Brot excuses himself. He goes and gets his prize possession.
Tad: Which is?
Taylor: Autographed picture of Cameron Diaz in a bikini. You know the one from --
Both: "Charlie's angels."
Tad: Definitely, that's worth dying for.
Taylor: Yeah, whatever. Then we hear rocket fire. Now, that's not too close, but still these guys are screaming at us, "Move, move, move!" But we held our cards, and we are staring each other down, and it's time to show what you've got.
Taylor: Me? Four kings.
Tad: There you go.
Taylor: How could I lose, right?
Taylor: That jerk. He had a straight flush.
Taylor: Straight flush, yeah.
Taylor: So he grabs his stupid picture, and shoves it in his pocket, and we were out of there. Next day, our C.O. rammed us, man. We got ripped a new one. It was good. You know, rocket fire, the good old days.
Tad: Yeah, good times, right. Well, here you are, looking like a million bucks, still playing cards, and, oh, not a rocket in sight. Which leads me to the question, how are things going with Brot?
Taylor: You know -- friendship -- you don't know how deep that can go until -- until someone lets you hold their life in your hands, because that's trust, the kind of trust that Brot and I used to have. Used to. He had so little faith in me, he pretended he was dead. Imagine how that feels. But you know what? I'm a soldier. So I'm looking at it like it's a mission. It's a mission for me to get that trust back, right?
Tad: Yeah, right. To trust.
Reese: Kendall is wrong. I would never intentionally hurt either of you. You have to believe me.
Zach: I don't have to believe anything. Adam Chandler? What is that? Revenge? You want to go after my family because of that, because of revenge?
Reese: No, I want Bianca back, and I need to prove it to you. It starts with you.
Zach: No, it does not. You come after my family, we have a real problem.
Reese: Go ahead, walk away. Go.
Pete: Mr. Chandler!
Adam: Whatever it is, Pete, it can wait.
Pete: Your money's gone. I got an e-mail from Greenlee before she died. She found how Erica was hiding things. The problems with the economy hit Fusion hard. All the cash you invested is gone.
Adam: Is this your idea of a joke?
Pete: No, sir. I -- I've got the e-mail. I can show you in my computer.
Adam: So Erica lost it, huh? Every dime.
Pete: Yes, Erica did. Erica Kane -- I'm just the messenger, remember that before you decide who to kill.
J.R.: You wanted me to drink?
Amanda: I wanted you to need me, and that only happens when you're out of control. It's -- it's beyond selfish, I know. But when you were giving your speech at the benefit, you were so strong and competent, I got scared.
J.R.: Of what?
Amanda: Of losing you. If you have your life together, why would you even waste your time with a disaster like me?
J.R.: Because you're carrying my child, Amanda.
Amanda: Yeah, but if you're trying to move on, then the last thing you need is a kid. So, I started thinking about all the ways that we'd hold you back, and I panicked.
J.R.: You know, even if I did believe you -- and I'm not saying that I do -- I still don't understand where Jake Martin fits into this.
Amanda: I must have said something about you at the benefit. He came here to stop me from doing anything stupid.
J.R.: Did you get yourself pregnant on purpose to try and trap me?
J.R.: How can I believe that? You ambushed me with Babe. You tried to push me off the wagon, control me. My God, Amanda, did you even think about what this would do to Little Adam? I actually thought that we had a future together.
Amanda: No, we can. I -- I changed my mind, J.R., I didn't do it. Doesn't that prove how I really feel?
Adam: What's all the racket in here?
J.R.: You're right, Dad. Amanda is a lying slut who's been playing me ever since Babe died.
David: Krystal. Krystal? You're going to be out for a nice long time.
Taylor: It was my turn.
Tad: Yes, honey.
Taylor: You go it last time. Now I can pay you back all the money you gave me.
Tad: Yeah, you can start now, as a matter of fact.
Taylor: I thought you had a shift at the hospital.
Frankie: Well, you know, it was so quiet over there, and they said Brot could go, and, you know, I was finished with my shift --
Taylor: They're building a whole new wing and it's quiet over there?
Tad: You know, we have a rule in Pine Valley that if you win 21, you owe everybody a round, and since yours was the aforementioned bonanza, I think these guys showed up in time to take advantage of your largesse.
Taylor: Ok, whatever you said, I think you mean I should buy.
Taylor: That's fine. But for the slack here, he gets the cheap stuff.
David: I'm late.
Jake: Hey, hey, hey, I just wanted to tell you that I'm aware that you paid Amanda to try to get J.R. to fall off the wagon, and now you're trying to force her to do it again. And if she doesn't do that for you, you're going to reveal your whole little scheme. I -- I'm aware of this.
David: That's quite a theory.
Jake: Well, it's not just a theory. Hey, don't bother going to the Chandlers and trying to get a status report, because she's just not going through with it, Dave. You're not going to win this one.
David: So that's what it's come down to, huh, Jake? Chasing after Amanda? Your wife runs off with a truck driver, your army chick hobbles back to her ex. So now you're so desperate to hang on to someone, anyone, that you're willing to scrape the bottom of the barrel?
Jake: Well, I'm just trying to help out a friend, something you know nothing about because you got no friends, Dave.
David: Oh, right, right. Come on, come on. You thought Amanda would be waiting for you, right? That she would jump at the chance to get back with you. Well, I guess it didn't turn out that way, huh? She turned around and got herself knocked up. Boy, you're as pitiful with women as you are with a scalpel.
Jake: See, I'm not trying to get Amanda back.
Jake: I just don't want to see her destroyed by you.
Amanda: After Jake dumped me, I was in a bad place. So were you because of Babe. We were both lost, but we found each other.
Adam: Stop embarrassing yourself.
Amanda: J.R., I swear to you I did not get pregnant on purpose. I am here with you because this is what I want. I made a stupid move, I know, but I did it because I want to keep you close because I care about you.
Adam: Yes, she cares about your cash.
Amanda: J.R. and I are friends again, more than friends. Tell -- tell your dad about all the amazing talks that we've had, how I helped you with little Adam. I -- I convinced you not to drink.
Adam: You have to move your shovel elsewhere. The Chandler gold mine is all tapped out.
Amanda: I do not want your money.
J.R.: I believe her.
Adam: Well, you two haven't changed a bit. She's still a tramp. You're still a fool. You deserve each other.
Zach: Kendall, open the door. First you lock me out of my bedroom, now you lock me out of the house?
Kendall: Very good. Did you figure that out all by yourself, or did Reese help you? I meant what I said at the casino. If your little whore wants you, she can have you.
Zach: I don't want Reese. I love you, and I think you already know that.
Kendall: Do I? I don't know. Your little make-out session with Reese sort of threw me off.
Zach: I think you're using Reese so we don't have to deal with what's going on here.
Kendall: Reese is going on here.
Zach: Well, you're the one that put her there, so we don't have to deal with our problems. Isn't that what's going on right now?
Kendall: Wow, you did a lot while I was in the hospital. You -- you made a kid, you fell for another woman, and you got a degree in Psychology. I am so glad to have Dr. Slater set me straight. I really am.
Zach: Now we're exactly where we were before the tornadoes -- distance, drama. So what do we do now? Hmm? You going to call the police? You going to have them arrest me, throw me into jail? Is that going to solve things? No! We're still going to be here. We have to solve this and move on!
Zach: Because we don't have a choice. Because we love each other, and the way we love each other -- I can't be without you, and you can't be without me. Together we can do anything. And if we're not together, it's all going to fall apart. This is your choice. You want me to leave? I'll leave right now, say the word. I'll walk out that door, and we'll both die. I love you. I always have. Always -- only you. But I'm going to accept whatever you decide. But you decide right now. What is it? Is it love or is it hate? There's no in between.
Tad: Hmm. Ooh, tough luck, baby.
Brot: Sorry, L.T. No guts, no glory.
Taylor: No, I'm going to win all my chips back. Come on.
Brot: Or -- or, I could just give you some of all of these chips I got.
Taylor: I don't want any of your charity. No, thank you. I do not want your charity. I am going to take you down. You are going down. Can I borrow some money?
Tad: And I'm guessing it's my turn to buy. Frankie, why don't you help me out at the bar, man.
Frankie: You got it.
Brot: These guys.
Taylor: That was subtle.
Taylor: It'd be a shame to disappoint them.
Brot: So you think if we snuck out, they would mind?
Taylor: I think they'd be thrilled.
Brot: I'll race you to the car. Let's go.
Taylor: Well, I have heels, but I'm still going to win.
Amanda: I'm so sorry, J.R. You have every right to hate me. God knows that I hate myself.
J.R.: Just stop. Everything in me says it's crazy to believe you, but I do. I have to if what's going on between us is real. Because if it's not, if it was just a scam -- well, then I've wronged Babe in all the worst ways possible.
Amanda: Before this happened, I didn't even know if I'd have kids. I'm still not sure if I'm ready or not, but when I get freaked out, I think about Babe. She was the best mom ever. And I am going to do everything I can to make her proud of me.
J.R.: I want that, too. I want to do right by you, Amanda. But first, I need to know if you're hiding anything else from me. If you can promise me that, then maybe I can make this work and move on together.
Amanda: I promise. You know everything there is to know.
David: Excuse me for interrupting, but I'm a real stickler when it comes to accuracy.
J.R.: What the hell is this?
David: I couldn't help but overhear Amanda here say that she told you everything. But something tells me that she neglected to mention the fact that I paid her a large sum of money to turn you back into a worthless drunk.
J.R.: It was the bottom of my life.
David: Isn't modern technology amazing? I mean, look at that picture and sound. Who would think that a mere cell phone could pick up the mumblings of a pathetic lush? But you have to admit, Amanda really did earn her money on Christmas Eve. Followed you and Little Adam up to the lodge, got you talking about Babe, missing her. And that probably would have been enough, but then you lost a -- what was it? A magic shell?
David: Yeah. Amanda kept that hidden in her purse while you drank yourself into a slobbering stupor.
David: You know, I got to tell you, I really thought this was going to be tough to pull off, but Amanda here, she -- she really made it work, made it easy. All I had to do was dangle a little check in front of her, and she would do anything.
Amanda: Shut up.
David: But we didn't get off to a great start, though, did we? I mean, honestly, you did come off a little too strong in the beginning. Remember the night that -- that she called you to come to Fusion because she was supposedly turning into an alcoholic? Yeah, that didn't go over so well. So we had to move on to plan B, Babe's dress.
Amanda: That was a huge mistake.
David: Yeah -- no, she's right about that. That was my mistake, you see, because I forgot that I was dealing with a guy who once tried to kill my daughter, Kendall, and Bianca. Yeah, so after you assaulted Amanda, we realized that we had to come on a little bit more subtle, make it so that she just happened to show up whenever you were crying about Babe. It was Christmas and -- well, the casino reopening. And then, of course, tonight, when Amanda here was supposed to reunite you with your one true friend, the bottle. But for some reason she suddenly grew a conscience.
J.R.: Why'd you do it?
David: Does it really matter?
J.R.: You tried to get me drunk to steal my son.
David: You can think whatever you want. I'm going to leave now, let you two kids talk. You know something -- you might want to get Daddy to board up those tunnels. You never know who just might wander in.
J.R.: I want you gone.
Taylor: So I was telling Tad about all the times that we --
Brot: Thank you.
Taylor: You know, played cards over in Iraq.
Brot: Ah, yeah. I remember that. Better yet -- remember the fake picture of Cameron Diaz? You wanted that thing so bad.
Taylor: What do you mean, "fake"?
Brot: The photo was real, but I signed it.
Taylor: I almost got myself killed over that stupid thing.
Brot: Yep, it was fake.
Brot: The way I feel about you.
Taylor: Me, too.
[Music plays as Zach and Kendall make love]
Singer: The corners in my bedroom empty in the night wake up waiting for you to come home and I still believe in what we have more than just a dream you know, the moon is shining perfectly but my heart is crumbling can I hold on tight to the memory of you and I? Can I hold on to you tonight? Say goodbye mmm say goodbye ooh can I hold on tight to the memory of you and I? Can I hold on to you tonight.
Adam: Ah. Well, she's gone, and I still have my wallet. Well done.
J.R.: Oh, just save it.
Adam: That woman has told you nothing but lies. Are you totally certain that you're the father of her child?
J.R.: There's no question about it.
Adam: All right. Well, the woman is still a lowlife, but the child is still a Chandler. So, do whatever you have to do -- whatever. Get us that baby.
Krystal: Where'd you go?
David: I had some business to take care of.
Krystal: David, you promised -- no more secrets.
David: But I didn't want to ruin the surprise.
Krystal: I -- I don't know what to say.
David: Well, you can start by saying you have no plans for tomorrow. And if you do, you'll cancel.
Krystal: How come?
David: Because tomorrow is a very big day. It's our wedding day.
Tad: Hmm. Mmm.
Jake: You know, men that stand around in bars and do funny little gestures like that -- it's usually a sign of insanity. All right, tell me whatever it was you were thinking. I could use a laugh.
Tad: Well, it just so happens Taylor told me a story, and it was kind of silly.
Jake: Taylor just told you a story?
Tad: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We were over there playing blackjack just a minute ago. She told me a story and it was funny.
Jake: Well, she is kind of funny once you cut through the tough exterior.
Tad: You have no idea. That's the point. See, she and Brot are playing a poker game over there in Iraq when they were in-country, and it's real high-stakes stuff. And they come under fire, and instead of calling off the game, they see the hands, because get this -- the big prize was a picture of Cameron Diaz.
Jake: Cameron Diaz?
Tad: Cameron Diaz.
Jake: As a prize?
Tad: I told you she was funny. Anyway, she took off.
Tad: With Brot. You know, he's a cool guy, right? Kind of a cool couple.
Jake: Yeah, he's -- he's a very cool guy.
Tad: Anyway, she's -- she's, you know, she's funny.
Jake: Yeah, she's very funny. Can I get a drink, too?
[Music plays as Brot and Taylor kiss and go in the bedroom]
Singer: I just want to love you for the rest of your life know I will love you for the rest of mine I don't want to fight I just want to be with you just want to live my life the way I was meant to
Singers: I want a love that hurts I want to see it run
Singer: Just want to look to you and watch my dreams come true
Singers: I want to hold you close and never let you go
Singer: I want to love you most
Singers: I want to hold you close and never let you go
Singer: I want to love you more
Kendall: We should turn out the lights, so you don't see how hideous I am.
Zach: What are you talking about? I love the scar. It gave me my wife back.
Kendall: Don't you think it's bizarre that I have someone else's heart?
Zach: You've always had somebody else's heart. Welcome back.
