Kendall: Where is she?
Guard: Wait, lady, you can't just come barreling in here.
Kendall: Where is Reese?
Security Guard: Let's go outside and we'll talk about it, ok?
Reese: It's all right.
Security Guard: Mr. Chandler gave me strict instructions to not let --
Reese: It's all right. You can go. Look, I'm sorry. Adam has --
Kendall: I don't give a damn about Adam. I want to know what the hell you were doing outside our window watching Zach and me. It's bad enough you've broken my sister's heart and tried to steal my husband, but if you think you're going to stalk us, you're going to need a lot more than that security guard to keep me from wringing your scrawny little neck.
Opal: It's for Greenlee's memorial service tomorrow. Jackson asked me to help get the place ready.
Zach: Who's coming?
Opal: Just about everybody we can think of.
Zach: Everybody but Ryan.
Ryan: I am not interested in any memorial service.
Jackson: Actually, Ryan, it's more of a celebration of Greenlee's life. Everyone who knew and loved her is going to be there, and we'd like you to be there. I wish you would reconsider.
Jackson: Don't you think Greenlee would want you there?
Ryan: No, I don't think Greenlee would want me there. I think Greenlee would want me there if she was going to be there herself. I'm not going, Jack. I've got nothing to celebrate.
Minister: I now pronounce you husband and wife.
David: Now you're mine. Thank you both for coming. I'll show you out. Are you all right?
Krystal: I'm just chilly.
Adam: Good God, look at you.
J.R.: I don't have to. I'm living me.
Adam: You call this living?
J.R.: No, I call this drinking. And you're interrupting me. So go away.
Adam: You actually miss that little slut, don't you?
J.R.: No, Dad, you're wrong again. Amanda was just a distraction, something to take my mind off of Babe. I found out it wasn't real. It was all just a lie.
Amanda: I'm spotting. Oh, my God, the baby.
Jake: Ok, listen to me. Let's get you to the hospital, ok? Just to check everything out.
Tad: Yeah, I'll bring the car around.
Amanda: No -- no, I don't want to go.
Jake: Well, it's just safer to, you know, check these things.
Amanda: No. No hospital. I won't go. I won't lose this baby. I can't lose this baby.
Jake: Most of the time when people spot, it's nothing to worry about. That's probably the case right now, ok?
Amanda: I really don't want to go to the hospital.
Tad: Ok, Amanda, come on. You've been through a lot of stress lately, sweetheart. I mean, moving into the mansion, moving out of the mansion, all the stuff with J.R. I'm sure that that stress has got to have something to do with it.
Jake: What he's saying is exactly -- it's exactly right. It's just better to be safe than sorry. Look, I'll get you to the hospital. I'll get you in and out in no time. You won't see anybody. We'll be back here in a couple of hours. Ok?
Amanda: I guess you're right. I'm being silly. You can go ahead and get the car.
Tad: That's my girl. I'll make sure that somebody is sent here to check on the kids.
Jake: I know you're worried about seeing David, but guess what? Today is his wedding day, so --
David: I get the feeling these aren't tears of joy. I know this wasn't the ideal wedding, with your friends and family here.
Krystal: It's not that. I know that wasn't possible.
David: Ok, then what is it? This place? The chill? Second thoughts, maybe?
Krystal: No, no. I know this was the right thing to do at the right time. It's just what you said just now about me being all yours. I mean, it just made me feel like something that was bought and sold. You know, a possession. Instead of an engagement and a wedding, I felt like I was a negotiation won, a deal closed, complete with a lawyer and a stack of paperwork.
David: Come on, come on. I mean, those are just irrational fears. All sorts of emotions coming at you from all different places all at once. Did you not want to do this? Aren't you the one that urged us into it?
David: Ok. Well, now we're finally one. You are the only person in my life right now. Listen to me. What I said that upset you, that you're all mine? That was only half of it, because I am all yours, too. All right?
Adam: If she means nothing to you, then why climb back in the bottle? Why throw it all away?
J.R.: I'm not throwing anything away, Dad. I'm just giving my mind a little break. It's been overworked lately.
Adam: You're a self-pitying fool, J.R.
J.R.: Well, I love you, too, Dad.
Adam: You're going to have to come back to reality one of these days.
J.R.: Well, you're rich. Why don't you pay someone to face reality for me?
Tad: Listen, it's me. Amanda's just been taken to the E.R. They're checking her, and she may be miscarrying.
J.R.: Uh, sorry. It's too late. I'm not going.
Tad: Well, you're obviously in no condition to drive. So why don't you have some coffee and get a cab?
J.R.: I'm sorry. It looks like Amanda might be losing the baby.
Adam: So I guess you want to run over there and hold her hand and tell her you're sorry.
J.R.: No, Dad. I want to do exactly what you do. I'm going to ignore her. I'm going to ignore everything she's going through. Good riddance to that bitch and the bastard she's carrying.
Amanda: Did you reach J.R.? Is he coming?
Tad: Not yet, but I'll find him.
Jake: Ok, do you want to get going?
Angie: Hey, hey. Come here. I want you to stay out of this. Let someone else treat her.
Frankie: She's scared to death. She needs her friends, people she can trust.
Angie: You are knee-deep in this. Now, you broke a dozen rules to help her. You know what? If David finds out that you hid the truth about the baby's paternity, I don't -- I want -- listen to me. I want you to keep your distance. Now, you can be her friend, but you let someone else help her. He's going to find out she's here sooner or later, and the further away that you are, the better.
Frankie: Yeah, this is Franklin Hubbard. I need an Ob/Gyn in the E.R., stat. Yeah.
Jake: Hey, hey. So there's no sign of Hayward, right?
Jake: Ok, good.
Angie: I want you to remember what I said.
Opal: Yeah, so Jackson said he was going to, you know, try to change Ryan's mind. How did you know he didn't want to come?
Zach: Just a gut feeling. He just can't accept that she's gone, I guess, right?
Opal: Why don't you talk to him? You two are so close.
Zach: Me and Ryan? No, that's wishful thinking on Kendall's and Greenlee's part.
Opal: Not just Kendall and Greenlee. I always thought that the two of you were kind of like kindred spirits.
Zach: No, far from it. He stepped over the line, and now I don't think he can get back from it.
Opal: Well, you know, people say and do things in grief that they don't necessarily mean. Ryan did just lose the woman he loved.
Zach: We all lost Greenlee. But he blames me for it and I accept that. But I don't think there's going to be any reconciliation. It doesn't work that way.
Opal: Stubborn, simple-headed jackasses. Men.
Zach: You're not wrong. But it's not something I can change, either.
Opal: Yeah, well, the celebration is tomorrow. So I'll expect you to be there, at least.
Jackson: Ryan, so much of Greenlee's life was about you. I think you're going to regret it if you don't go.
Ryan: If I went to this celebration, then that would be the same as me saying goodbye to her. And I can't do that, Jack. You see, every morning I wake up and I expect to see her lying there beside me. I think that maybe this whole thing has been a bit of a mistake, that she found her way home. And just for one second, I actually feel her there before it all comes crashing down. So if I went to this and I heard everybody talk about her in the past tense, then I would lose even those. And I really don't want to lose those. And this may sound crazy, or it may sound like it's a really lame excuse or something, but it's the truth.
Jackson: Actually, it doesn't sound crazy at all. Ryan, my thought was that if we could all get together, talk about her, remember her, that we could have some of those moments, the moments you were talking about, back, even if just for one day.
Ryan: I really hope that it works for you. But I am just not ready yet.
Reese: I was not stalking you. When I saw you and Zach together, I felt horrible, I felt ashamed, and I did not mean to intrude.
Kendall: Then what were you doing there?
Reese: I don't know.
Kendall: You don't know. Well, I do. You came to try to make another grab for my husband.
Reese: I don't want your husband. And I'm getting real sick and tired of hearing you accuse me of that.
Kendall: Right, right. You've never had any feelings for him.
Reese: No, I did. I felt close to him. I was drawn to him. But the kiss was a mistake.
Kendall: You can't just ruin peoples' lives and then go, "oops, mistake." You've already hurt my sister and drove her away. You are not coming between Zach and me.
Reese: You are not the only one who has been hurt in all this, Kendall. You and Zach are going to go on right? You and Bianca are sisters, and you will come together again. Do you have any idea what I have lost?
Kendall: I really don't care.
Reese: No, of course you don't. Of course you don't, even though you have some responsibility in everything that has happened.
Reese: Since you woke up from your coma, you've been on a mission to bring me
down, and it worked. But you didn't stop with me.
You could have tried to forgive Bianca and Zach before everything got so bad.
But no, you just want to blame everything that's happened on
somebody else, especially me. I mean, even Greenlee's death.
Kendall: Ryan caught you kissing my husband. That's why Greenlee was on the road.
Reese: Yes, and you were the one driving the car that night.
Kendall: Of course. Ok, so that's what this is about. You intend to blackmail me, after all.
Kendall: So when we're with Zach, it's our little secret, but alone, the gloves come off. Do you honestly expect me to hand over my husband?
Reese: You are unbelievable. I don't want your husband.
Kendall: Well, then stay the hell away from us and away from our home.
Reese: I told you why I'm not leaving.
Kendall: Right, ok. Do you honestly think you can convince us that you love Bianca?
Reese: I'm going to do my damnedest to try. You know what? Maybe the best I will ever get is, "Hey, Reese isn't so bad." But you know what? I'm going to prove to Bianca that I love her, and I'm not going to stop until I win her back.
David: Push. Push! All right, take a breath. I can see the head. All right, just one more time. Come on, come on. You can do it. Push! Push! Yes, yes!
Krystal: Is it a girl?
David: My baby, my baby. Look. Look what you've given me.
David: It's all right, it's just my phone. Hayward.
Nurse: Dr. Hayward, this is Gayle from the hospital.
Nurse: Amanda Dillon's back in the hospital. She just was admitted to the E.R. Pregnancy complications.
David: I see. Thank you.
Adam: I know you were being sarcastic, but you were right. Losing that baby would be the best thing that ever happened to you.
J.R.: Oh, come on. That's a Chandler heir you're wishing dead.
Adam: No, I'm not wishing anybody dead. But I am worried to death about you.
J.R.: Well, save it. Because I can measure your depth of sincerity with a swizzle stick. No, the best thing that would happen to Amanda is to lose that baby, because she wouldn't have to go through nine circles of Adam Chandler hell. You would snatch that baby. You would feed it and you would protect it and just treat it like a proper Chandler. Maybe you'd try a little bit harder this time. You know what you should do, Dad? You should stick to raising orchids or something, because you suck at being a dad. Sometimes I wish I was never even a Chandler.
Adam: And I wish I wasn't ashamed of my son. I've had it.
Tad: So have I. I'm tired of listening to you two tear each other to ribbons when there are people out there who need you.
Adam: Yes, you're absolutely right. There's a grandson that needs me to put him to bed. Because his father's too drunk to stand up.
J.R.: Oh, yay. Here's to Tad for getting rid of the big bad wolf --
[Tad knocks the drink out of J.R.'s hand]
Tad: For once in his life, your father is right. You are a pathetic drunk. How dare you sit here getting high when Amanda is going through hell in that emergency room? You've got a very important decision to make, son, and you're going to make it.
Reese: Would you wait? You're going to want to hear what I have to say.
Ryan: Yeah, I thought I made it really clear to you that I don't want anything to do with you at all.
Reese: Kendall was the one who was driving the car that forced Greenlee off the road, not Zach. All right? He's been covering up for her the whole time.
Reese: What, you knew?
Ryan: Zach isn't quite as clever as he thinks he is. How did you find out?
Reese: I overheard them talking. Look, Ryan, I know you hate me. You can't stand me. I've made my share of mistakes. Just go on, line me up against the wall. Shoot me. What about Kendall? What about everything she's done? And Zach, he just keeps cleaning up after her. He keeps wiping it all under the rug.
Ryan: Why does this matter so much to you?
Reese: Kendall matters to me because she matters to Bianca. And right now, Kendall's not going to stop until she sees me destroyed. And I feel like if I ever want to have another chance with Bianca, I have got to prove myself to the people that she loves.
Ryan: Ok, so you think telling people that Kendall lied about a fatal car accident, you think that that's going to help your cause?
Reese: Look, I'm not telling people. I'm not telling the police. I am telling you. Because, I don't know, I think that you deserve to know more than anyone else. And I have been involved in too many secrets, and all it's done is gotten me in trouble.
Ryan: So we're done here.
Reese: I love Bianca. And she's going to know that I do.
Ryan: If that were true, then you wouldn't be here, fighting with her friends and family. You would be back in Europe, fighting for Bianca.
Reese: You're so wrong. The battleground is here.
David: What is it?
Krystal: I miss Jenny.
David: I know you do. Tad is being very unfair, not letting her over here. But we're going to work on that. I promised you, remember? It's a whole new start, Mrs. Hayward, for you and for me.
Krystal: Wow, and you're just leaving for the hospital. That was like you were marching off to war.
David: Wait up for me, all right? I shouldn't be long.
Doctor: It's too soon to know what's going on. The sonogram and blood work will tell us a lot more.
Jake: Hey, hey. How's our girl doing?
Doctor: We'll know in a few hours.
Jake: Good. Are you hanging in there?
Amanda: I guess you should be happy if I do lose the baby. I mean, it's David's, for God's sake. J.R. Hates me, anyway. I mean, the poor thing would just end up in the middle of the whole mess. I guess I'd gotten psyched about being a mom, raising a son or daughter on my own if I had to. God, I really don't want to lose this baby.
Jake: You're not. Look, don't get upset, ok? You've got to stay calm, and that is the doctor's orders. That is two doctors' orders.
Frankie: I agree. I second.
Amanda: You guys have been really great. Thank you for everything that you've done, especially keeping the truth from David.
Angie: It's all right, I know about David being the father. And I want you to know that I'm on your side, too. I will do everything that I can to keep him from finding out. I know first-hand what that man is capable of, and I don't want you to get hurt.
Amanda: Thank you.
Angie: You and you, give us a minute.
Frankie: It's plural.
Angie: They're good doctors and sweet guys. But they don't know what it's like to have a baby growing inside you. And I want you to know that I do understand. Sweetheart, I know how afraid you are. I just want you to know that your doctors are doing everything they possibly can to save this baby, and everything else is in God's hands.
J.R.: You know, when you're right, you're right. I'm a worthless drunk. Amanda
knew it. She used it against me.
Hayward knew it.
Tad: J.R., You're not worthless. But you have to understand something. Amanda was used by Hayward. She was manipulated. She's not the enemy. He simply did to her what he did to Dixie, what he's doing to Krystal. She's confused. More importantly, she's scared. She's alone, and she's scared to death that she's going to lose that baby. Your baby. She needs you.
J.R.: Not like this. I'm no good to anybody like this.
Tad: Then sober up. If you don't, Hayward wins.
Jake: Hey, what are you doing here? I thought you were getting married today.
David: Amanda was brought in. Pregnancy complications. Where is she? Yeah, I've heard. I'm chief of staff here, remember? I know everything that goes on in this place. Hubbard, where do you have her stashed?
Frankie: She doesn't need your kind of grief right now.
David: Did she lose the baby?
Frankie: No, but she could. We're waiting on test results. Listen, why don't you give her some breathing room? Every time you guys go at it, she seems to get more and more upset, and that's not what she needs right now.
David: So you two appointed yourselves her guardian angels, is that it?
Jake: Just calling it as we see it. You kicked her to the curb, and J.R. Kicked her out because of it. She's in this hospital because of you. So the way I see it, if she loses the baby, it's your fault.
Ryan: So I had a little visit with Reese. She confirmed that you weren't driving the car that night, that it was Kendall.
Zach: What are you going to do with that information?
Zach: Kendall and I lied to the police. What are you going to do? Are you going to go tell so we get arrested? That's how you're going to get your revenge for Greenlee?
Ryan: No. No police, Zach. I told you, it doesn't make a difference to me who was actually driving the car. Greenlee was on the road that night because of you. Kendall was on the wrong side of the road that night because of you, because you were arguing about Reese, all right? You set this whole thing in motion, Zach.
Zach: What do you want from me?
Ryan: I want to know why you haven't gotten rid of Reese yet.
Kendall: That's a good question. I'd like to know the answer, as well. Why don't you tell him, Zach?
Ryan: Zach, I mean, it's a simple question. Honestly, if you want to be with Reese, go be with Reese, man. You want to get rid of her, then get rid of her.
Zach: All right.
Kendall: Zach, listen -- listen, wait a minute -- wait a minute. I want us to get back to normal. I do. And I want us to be a family again, but we can't, not with her here. And she's determined to stay here and torment us all.
Zach: You want to get back to normal.
Zach: You want me to get rid of her. Ok, good. I'll get rid of her. No problem. Don't expect me at home.
David: I don't give a damn what your father had over me. I'm not about to take this crap from two pissant subordinate employees. Now where the hell is she? Get out of my way.
Angie: Get out. All of you, get out.
Amanda: No, it's ok. I'll talk to David.
Krystal: Oh! Hello?
Angie: Hi, it's Angie.
Krystal: Oh, hi.
Angie: You ok?
Krystal: Yeah. I, um -- I got married today.
Angie: Yeah, I heard. Listen, I don't know if you are aware, but David is here at the hospital. He's in with Amanda. She might be losing her baby.
Krystal: Thank you for letting me know.
David: I know you think I'm responsible for you being here right now, that I have somehow put your baby at risk.
Amanda: What you did to me was awful.
David: I was just confessing to the truth, Amanda. Letting J.R. know that you were deceiving him on my behalf, and that you were paid for your troubles. You acted freely, of your own will. So how does that make me the bad guy?
Amanda: You know how. Things change. I started having feelings for J.R. I could have given this baby a good home, one that --
David: The Chandler mansion is not a home, it's a prison. You should be thanking me for rescuing you and this baby from that place.
Amanda: I don't feel grateful to you right now for anything.
David: So if you're still so antagonistic toward me, why did you feel the need to talk to me? Maybe I can tell you why. Because you're trying to muster up the courage to tell me that this child you're carrying is mine.
Angie: David's in with Amanda right now.
Krystal: The baby?
Angie: We don't know yet.
Krystal: No, no, no. I -- I'm not going to bust in on them and cause a scene, Angie. We just got married, and that would ruin things.
Angie: Well, would that be so bad?
Krystal: Yes. Look, Angie, don't judge me. Please.
Angie: Look, I just want to help you. Do you know what they're probably talking about right now?
Krystal: Well, I don't know, but, I mean, she might be telling David that he's the father of that baby.
Angie: Uh-huh. And if that's the case, and the child survives, maybe finally you'll be free of him. He'll have what he wants. He can stop fixating on Babe's child and you.
Krystal: If you think that I am trying to get out of this situation, then you just do not understand. I love David.
Angie: Then why did you come?
Krystal: To find out the truth.
J.R.: Hey, where's Amanda? And what about the baby? Is she ok?
Amanda: You were there when my life was falling apart, after I'd lost Jake. You made me feel safe. God, how wrong I was. You're here. Thank God you came. I've been so scared.
David: Hang on. Wait a minute, wait a minute. You -- you were about to tell me something. Something important. What is it?
Amanda: Please, I want to be alone with J.R. I want to be alone with the father of my child.
J.R.: You heard her. Get out. Haven't you poisoned her life enough?
David: Hasn't she poisoned your life enough?
J.R.: Get out. I'm sorry. Don't worry. You're not going to lose our baby. You hear me?
Krystal: Are you ok?
Tad: I just -- I just never believed that you'd actually do it. I guess I didn't want to believe that you would actually do it.
David: What are you doing here? Krystal, why are you here?
Guard: Sir, you can't come in here.
Reese: It's ok, really.
Zach: Pack your things.
Zach: You've caused enough damage. Let's go.
Reese: You know, you have no right to order me around. I'm staying in Pine Valley. And you know what? You and Kendall can just deal with it.
Krystal: Angie called me and told me about Amanda, that she was here. She was concerned.
David: Yeah, this whole damn town is concerned about me. I sure as hell know you are, right, Martin?
Tad: Oh, it -- I learned a long time ago never to turn my back when you're in the room.
David: You know what? You could do that now, would you? I'd like some time alone with my wife. I owe you an apology. I should have told you why I was called down here. I just didn't want to drag you into this mess. I mean, this crowd -- the Martins, the Hubbards -- they all seem to think that Amanda's baby is mine. And she insists it isn't. Now, it certainly isn't on my mind, all right? This is not the baby that I would want.
Krystal: I know Little A is your number one concern.
David: No, no, no. No. No. I'm not talking about Little A. I'm talking about you and me, Krystal. I would like to have another baby. With you, Krystal. I want us to have Babe's sister or brother.
Jake: Hey. Welcome to another glory night at the E.R.
Tad: Hey, how's Amanda? Is she going to be all right?
Jake: Well, we're not really going to know until we get the test results back.
Tad: Mm. You know, it occurs to me that you and I have actually never talked about, you know, her moving in with us.
Tad: You know, just on the fly. It's kind of impulsive, don't you think?
Tad: I just wondered where it came from.
Jake: You know, she's just been through a lot, you know? Hayward's putting her through the mill.
Tad: Yeah, well, I'm fine with that. I mean, I think she's a -- she's a good kid. She's welcome. It's just that, you know, god willing, the baby is going to be ok, which means eventually she's going to have the baby, which means eventually it's going to be her and the baby living with us.
Tad: So, what are we going to do?
Jake: Well, we'll, you know, we'll be Mr. Moms. Moms. You'll -- you'll give me some pointers, and we'll be fine.
Jake: We'll be fine.
Tad: Where is this coming from, just out of curiosity? Charity? Or are you feeling sorry for somebody?
Jake: No, I have a certain attachment.
Tad: To Amanda or the baby?
J.R.: I don't care what you think of me. What I want you thinking about is that little baby that's growing inside of you, that you put all that energy and good thoughts into there.
Amanda: Why should I? You and Adam are just going to take it away from me again.
J.R.: I could never do that. I know what I said before, but I just couldn't do it. I swear that I'm going to protect you and this baby from my father and his warped idea of family. Maybe I can't save myself from him, but I can save our child. And this is my promise to you.
Ryan: Hey, don't do this to yourself. Please don't be so hard on yourself. You just said to him what I think you should have been saying the entire time, what you would have said if you weren't in that coma, Kendall. He's got to get her out of here. He's got to get her out of our lives.
Kendall: I've known that since -- since I woke up. And I pushed him into doing it. But I think I pushed him too far. I'm scared I lost him for good. God, Ryan, when did everything get so out of control?
Reese: You cannot control me any more than your wife can. I am so sick and tired of being battered around by the Kane women, and now by you? I'm not running anywhere, and you cannot push me out.
Zach: The hell I can't.
Reese: Let go!
