Annie: Thank God.
Aidan: Did you have bad dreams?
Annie: I'm afraid to dream. I'm afraid of what I might see. Just, please, keep a hold onto me and don't let me go.
Aidan: Annie --
Annie: I know that sounds insane, but I was born insane.
Aidan: Don't say that. I don't believe that and neither should you. You buried a piece of your childhood.
Annie: Yeah, wouldn't you? If you knew that you killed a little girl?
Aidan: Annie, we don't know yet what happened at all.
Annie: Yeah, well, we know that Tori went missing. And I remember her lying there bleeding with blood on my hand. I also created an adult version of her as my imaginary friend, so it's pretty clear that I'm the one who murdered her.
Aidan: Annie, nothing's clear. Ok, there's more to this story. And if you trust me, I can fill in the blanks.
Emma: Will you be strong enough to fly?
Ryan: I don't think anybody's that strong.
Ryan: Oh, right -- angels, sure. But not like regular people.
Emma: Will Spike's little brother be an angel soon?
Ryan: Oh, I hope not.
Ryan: Oh, Spike misses his mommy and his little brother.
Emma: Maybe you should explain to Spike that heaven is really nice.
Kendall: Such a strong, brave boy. You're Mama's strong, brave boy. Mama loves you.
Zach: Nice. He likes getting his feet rubbed.
Kendall: I'd give anything to hold him close.
Zach: Yeah, me, too. But sometimes all you've got to do is believe. I look at you, and I know that miracles can happen.
Kendall: We need another one.
Zach: It's coming. We're a miracle family. Always pull through, no matter what.
Jake: This is incredible. I don't get it. I mean, why am I not surprised?
Opal: Oh, Mr. Teflon strikes again. He must have sold his soul to the devil.
Amanda: Hmm, if he ever had one.
Tad: All right, everybody, take a deep breath. Both J.R. and Adam need a huge break with this custody thing.
Jake: Yeah, but just like that, the charges get dropped? How does that happen?
Tad: Well, let's just say Adam owes me a huge favor.
Opal: I don't even want to know. I just ask, please, keep me out of David's path. He is going to be breathing fire today.
Tad: Yeah, and when Hayward starts breathing fire, unfortunately, Krystal's the first one to get burned.
David: Why hasn't Adam been struck by lightning yet?
Krystal: You know, you're worrying me. This is how you were talking last night, wishing Adam dead.
David: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I meant every word.
Krystal: David --
David: Look, it's a fantasy, ok? Is that another pain?
Krystal: It's just a stitch in my side.
David: Krystal -- all right, this is definitely not a stitch. The pain is too sharp. How long has this been going on?
Krystal: About a day, on and off, maybe a day and a half.
David: Krystal, that is not good.
Krystal: Maybe I just pulled something and --
David: No, no, a pulled muscle doesn't bite this hard.
David: Your pulse is tachy. We're going to the hospital. Come on. Come on, come on.
Opal: Where are my gloves?
Amanda: Oh, here, these.
Opal: Oh, great. Thank you, little mama.
Tad: Mama, doesn't your shift start sometime today?
Opal: Oh, here I am going to volunteer when I should be out earning a living.
Jake: Oh, no, no, those patients need that. I think they like the sound of the wheels of the sunny cart coming down the hall.
Opal: Well, I think they do kind of like me, don't they? I help them keep their minds off their aches and pains.
Amanda: That's an amazing talent. I couldn't do it in a million years.
Opal: Oh, you'll have to learn quick enough, soon as that baby pops out. Now, stick a fork in me, I'm done.
Tad: Thanks, I'm late.
Amanda: All right, have a good day, you guys.
Jake: Yeah, take it easy. Look at that. They live in a barn?
Amanda: Did it take a year to get them out of here?
Jake: Yes, more like a decade.
Amanda: So, still up for this?
Jake: Does a pigeon have lips?
Aidan: Come here with me. All right, sit down. You're a kind, decent woman. And I believe you lost a piece of yourself that day when you turned 7 years old. We have to go back to that birthday --
Annie: No, no, I don't want to.
Aidan: Annie, we can handle whatever you find. Ok, this grown-up Tori that you've been seeing --
Annie: Her ghost. It's back to haunt me.
Aidan: Grown-up Tori is you. Ok, she's part of your mind. The part that wants you to remember. The part that wants you to know what happened.
Annie: Yeah, but she's gone now, so --
Aidan: No, she's not. She's right here, waiting to talk to you.
Annie: Well, I don't hear her anymore.
Aidan: I might be able to help you out with that. Will you let me try? I mean, we can let the doctors handle this.
Annie: No, no, no, no.
Aidan: This is not going to go away.
Annie: The doctors are only going to make it worse. You, ok, only you.
Ryan: Where could she be? She's hiding somewhere. Oh, I know. She went up the chimney. Do you think she went up the chimney?
Ryan: No, no, because she needs, like, Mary Poppins to pull something like that off. Mary Poppins wouldn't take her without saying goodbye. Do you want to look for her under the rug? Do you think she's hiding under the rug? No, there's no lumps in the rug. She can't be under the rug. I know where she is. She's in the flowers. Do you think she's in the flowers?
Ryan: She's in the flowers. I think she is -- she's hiding in the flowers! Oh!
Ryan: There you are! I got you. We got her. We found her. Whoo-hoo.
Emma: No fair. You made me laugh.
Ryan: Oh, that -- hey, listen. That's part of the rules. Nothing in the rules says I can't make you laugh to find you. That's fair game, you two. Now guess who's turn it is to hide? It's my turn to hide. Now you guys -- you need to cover your eyes. You've got to cover your eyes. I'm going to hide. Count to 10, ok?
Ryan: Ok, cover your eyes. That's it, yeah. That's good, that's good. Ready? Start counting.
Spike: One, two, four, five --
Emma: Six, seven, eight, nine, ten -- we're coming to get you.
Kendall: You're the master foot-rubber. Way better than I am.
Zach: I've had more practice.
Kendall: On my feet -- not his.
Zach: We had good times. You used to give me some very nice prizes.
Kendall: I enjoyed those prizes, too.
Kendall: It's so easy to remember the good times when we're sitting here watching our sick baby sleep. It's so hard to remember anything good when we're going at each other's throats.
Zach: Well, we've got to stop doing that. That's head-butting and finger-pointing -- it's not good for the kids.
Kendall: You're an amazing father. Don't let anyone tell you different, not even me.
Zach: How could I say that I love the casino more than anything?
Kendall: You never once put work above your boys.
Zach: Well, maybe not. But I always put you above the world.
Kendall: Maybe I was spoiled.
Zach: Or it's possibly my fault.
Kendall: Possibly genetic. I've always been like this.
Zach: You're an amazing mother. Don't let anyone ever tell you different, not even me.
Kendall: It's been a long time since you and I wanted the same thing.
Zach: Yeah. You know, safe, happy, and healthy --
Kendall: Between your iron will and my iron will --
Zach: We'll make it happen.
Kendall: I believe that. I have to.
Zach: It's going to be a rough recovery for him. I think we're going to have to pull together, not apart. Peace on the home front.
Kendall: Are you saying you don't want the divorce?
Zach: What I want is Ian healthy. That's all I can focus on right now.
Kendall: Right, right, of course. I -- I feel silly for even mentioning us.
Zach: Well, you must be tired.
Kendall: I'm no more exhausted than you.
Zach: I'm ok. Why don't you take a break? I'll take over. You pick up Spike and go home.
Kendall: No, no, I can't leave Ian.
Zach: Ian's fine. He's with his dad.
Kendall: Yeah, but what if he -- what if he asks for his mom?
Zach: If he asks for his mom, then we'll call her.
Kendall: Are you sure you're ok being alone?
Zach: I'm not alone. I'm here with my boy. Go get Spike. Get some rest.
Kendall: Ok, all right. But if anything changes, if there's anything --
Zach: We'll call you. All right? Deal.
Kendall: I guess.
Zach: It's, um, one giant step for parent-kind.
Kendall: One giant step for something.
Jake: Ok. Ahem. Hi. In a couple of months, this beautiful woman to my right will be having a baby. It's because of a careless one-night stand with me. We're not a couple. I'm a doctor that has crazy hours. I work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and -- should we do this thing over? Do you want to start? Because maybe I'm being rude. Do you want to say something first or -- sorry.
Amanda: The thing about this baby is I'm not ready to be a mom. And I want this baby to have loving parents who can spend a lot of baby time and -- ah. Oh!
Jake: What is it?
Amanda: The baby, it kicked. Oh, ooh, it's doing it again. Come here, feel, feel. Right -- do you feel it?
Jake: Whoa, yeah. The baby kicked. Maybe that's the baby's way of saying hello to it's new parents. Maybe the baby's new parents are watching this video right this second, and --
Amanda: Stop. I'm sorry. Just stop it. I can't --
Amanda: I can't -- I can't do this. I'm sorry.
Aidan: Deep, deep breath. Deep in, and exhale slowly. And again. Breathe in, and exhale slowly. Good. Now carry on doing that. It's your seventh birthday. Where are you? What do you see?
Annie: I'm in the cellar of my house where I grew up. I'm hiding under the staircase.
Aidan: Who are you hiding from?
Annie: I don't know.
Aidan: What do you see?
Annie: It's dark.
Aidan: Is anybody with you?
Annie: I don't see anybody.
[Annie breathes heavily]
Aidan: It's ok. Just relax. Can you hear anything?
Aidan: What just happened?
Annie: He's calling.
Aidan: Who's calling?
Man: Annie, you there?
Aidan: Where's your father?
Annie: He's at the top of the stairs.
Aidan: Do you answer him?
Annie: No. No, I'm scared. I don't want to do this.
Aidan: Annie, Annie, it's ok, all right? No one's going to hurt you. We have to do this. Come on, come back.
Annie: No, I can't.
Aidan: Please, just come back. Go back to the cellar, ok? And tell me what you see. Go back to the cellar, ok? What do you see? Is it your father? Somebody else?
Annie: I don't want to see it. It's horrible.
Aidan: I promise it's safe to look, Annie. Looking can't hurt you, not anymore. I'm right here.
Annie: Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no --
Aidan: What do you see?
Annie: Tori, it's me, Annie. Tori, please wake up. Her face is all bloody. She isn't moving. She's dead.
Aidan: Annie, can you hear me? You're doing so well, honey. You're so brave. Listen, you've gone this far. Go the rest of the way.
Annie: I'm trying to wake up Tori. But she's gone. She's dead. The doll --
Aidan: You see a doll? Tell me about it.
Annie: She's lying on her side in a white, ruffled dress. She's pretty. I like her.
Aidan: Is she yours?
Annie: I don't know. Somebody smashed the side of her face. It's all caved in.
Aidan: Do you know who smashed the doll?
Annie: Tori gave me a doll for my birthday. But then she wanted it back. And I wouldn't give Tori back the doll.
Aidan: What happened? What did you see?
Annie: A bat, a baseball bat.
Aidan: Annie, don't be afraid. You're going to be all right. I promise.
Annie: Did I really kill a little girl for a doll? Was I really that twisted?
Amanda: I'm sorry I lost it.
Jake: Oh, it's all right. I mean, you know, the baby kicks you, it's a lot. It's something.
Amanda: I've felt it before but never this hard. I mean, usually it's soft little flutters, but this time it was -- it was like an actual foot, like a little baby foot. So I just felt like the baby was trying to give me a message.
Jake: Well, that's probably what they're doing when they kick, you know? They're kicking -- how do we know they're not punching? Maybe they're punching and this whole time they're -- they're --
Amanda: I'm sorry.
Jake: No, no.
Amanda: I slipped into the fantasy for a minute of you being the father, and I know this is insane, but I heard myself say, "Why not raise your baby with this man?" It's the hormones. I know, I'm sorry. It's the hormones.
Jake: No, no, the -- you know, the baby's getting bigger, and it's feeling very real to you now. And I understand, and I'm just sorry that you're going through this. You know?
Amanda: It's not your fault.
Jake: You know what? I have an idea. We'll make this video. We'll circulate this video, right, and so, you know, candidates -- parents will look at the video. This way, you'll just have to look at the applications. You won't have to meet a million people. And just, you know, pick the parents that you want. Does that make sense?
Amanda: You always make sense. And I'm always a wreck.
Jake: That is not true. That is just not true. The way -- what?
Amanda: I would fall apart without you.
Jake: Well, then you know what I'll do? I'll make you some don't-fall-apart tea.
Amanda: There is such a thing?
Jake: Oh, yes. Yes, there's all kinds of fancy, magical herbal teas.
Jake: There's don't-fall-apart tea. I told you that one already. There's how-to-learn-French tea, be-nice-to-your-mother-in-law tea. There's even laugh-your-butt-off tea, which I can actually mix a little laugh-your-butt-off tea with don't-fall-apart tea if you -- I'll get you that.
Opal: Hey, how is the little fellow?
Zach: He's holding his own.
Opal: Well, sure he is. He's your son, isn't he? Never gives up, never will. Myrt and me, we were tighter than two peas. She was crazy about you, but you know that.
Zach: Well, that went both ways.
Opal: I've got a feeling she's working her magic from the great beyond.
Zach: If anyone could --
Opal: Yeah, she had some pretty powerful mojo. And she could also see the good in the bad. You know, like this little sick fellow here. His mom and pop are praying something fierce, and maybe that will bring his parents back together. Look, Myrt was smooth. I don't have that gift. I'm just going to say it straight out. You want Kendall back, don't you?
Kendall: Hey. Hey, hey, you. How's my Spikey? How's my big boy? Give me a kiss right now. All right. That was great, that was good.
Ryan: He didn't sleep great last night, so he's a little bit droopy, but --
Kendall: Oh, well.
Ryan: How is Ian?
Kendall: No better, no worse.
Ryan: You got to be exhausted, huh?
Kendall: Yeah, yeah, we're running on fumes. What are you doing, crazy boy?
Ryan: Little guy.
Kendall: Yeah, go get the blocks. Come on.
Ryan: Hey. We ok?
Tad: Did Jesse catch any flak for getting those charges dropped?
Angie: Everyone knew they were groundless. Not to worry.
David: I need an open room!
Tad: What the --
David: It's ok.
Krystal: Oh, it's killing me, oh.
Tad: What the hell did you do now?
David: Recurring pain at least 24 hours, mild at first, building to this. It could be her appendix.
Krystal: Make it stop.
David: BP's shockey. Set up a few lines, ok? Get a count of CBC and lytes.
Angie: I know what to do.
David: Set her up for a CT scan.
Angie: Listen, I said I know what to do.
Tad: What was it this time? She slip and fall down a flight of stairs?
David: Shut up!
Tad: Well, are we talking about a couple of broken ribs? What did you do?
David: Shut the hell up or I swear I'll --
Tad: What? What -- you want to take a shot at me? That would be interesting. Because I promise you, I won't slip and fall.
David: She's going to be all right -- she has to be.
Annie: Why are we even here? I've never been down here, and this isn't like my cellar at home.
Aidan: It must be more like your cellar at home than your room upstairs, no? The darkness, the smell -- doesn't anything remind you?
Annie: I've always hated basements, and I never knew why until now.
Aidan: Listen, take your time. Ok, have a look around. See if anything reminds you.
Aidan: See, there's room underneath the stairs for a 7-year-old to hide.
Annie: I was there.
Annie: Tori was there. I moved to Tori. Tori's not here anymore. Tori's gone. I don't understand. She was right here and now she's not.
Tori: Annie, come on. I've got your doll. Don't you want to play with it?
Annie's voice: She wanted to give it back to me. Why would I want to hurt her?
Kendall: Ryan, we're fine. Honestly, I am 90% about Ian right now and the rest that I have left is on Spike.
Ryan: I totally, totally get that.
Kendall: This is the best I can do until Ian is well.
Ryan: Of course, it is. I understand that. I just want to make sure that we're cool. You know, with all that's going on, I want to make sure that you know I'm here for you and -- and I hope you would tell me if anything's changed between us.
Zach: Ian is alive, so what I want is for him to pull out of this crisis and heal. Everything else can be on hold.
Opal: Well, on hold is better than finished. On hold means there's still a chance, there's a crack in the door. Keep an open mind about Kendall. Don't close the book on her yet.
Zach: Is that the advice you'd give her, too?
Opal: You betcha. First chance I get. I know what Myrt knew, and what Erica understands. You and Kendall are a matched set.
Kendall: Everything has changed, Ryan. I mean, Ian is hanging by a thread, and my whole world is turned upside-down again.
Ryan: I know this, I know. And the last thing that you need from anybody is pressure, ok?
Kendall: You know, you make me happy.
Ryan: I'm sure it's hard to be happy right now with Ian the way he is. I know that. So I'm going to step back.
Kendall: Ok. This whole stepping-back thing -- how will that work?
Ryan: Well, for me, it means I'm going to spend more time with Emma and Spike, and for you, I'm going to give you some space so you can spend more time with Ian. Of course, that also means you're going to be spending more time with Zach.
Kendall: Yeah, well, Zach belongs with his son.
Ryan: Of course, he does. Of course, he does, and I would be a jerk -- anybody would be a jerk to lay into Ian's father right now with what you guys are going through. I know that.
Kendall: Yeah, you know what? You are very far from a jerk. Trust me. You are pretty damn wonderful.
Ryan: It's nice to be reminded of that.
Kendall: Ok. We've got to go.
Kendall: Say bye to Daddy.
Ryan: I love you. I love you. Go with your mommy. I'll see you soon, Spike.
Kendall: Wow, wha!
Ryan: How'd you get so heavy?
Kendall: I know, really.
Ryan: How'd you get so heavy?
Kendall: Yeah. Yeah, you'll probably see us sooner rather than later. Well -- I am forgetting something major.
Ryan: Don't worry. It will be here when you bring my little man back.
Kendall: I can't stay away.
Jake: I am not a metrosexual. I'm what's called an omnisexual. An omnisexual -- you get it? Preggers here doesn't like that. You know why? You know why? Because she's a bigot. That's why.
Amanda: I'm no bigot. You are a fraud. You should have told be before you moved in with me that you had slept with my niece, my brother, and my colorist.
Jake: Oh, for goodness sake. Do I have to spell everything out for you with a crayon? I like Liza. I like Barbra. I like platform pumps. You know what I'm saying? I design women's gloves. I mean, come on, hello.
Amanda: You would sleep with a fire hydrant if you had the abs to lift one.
Jake: I have an ab, which is more than I can say for you, fatty.
Amanda: I'm pregnant, you moron.
Jake: Oh, pregnant. Pregnant is just an excuse for being fat. Well, it is.
Amanda: I'm sorry.
David: What did the CT scan show? Has she perfed?
Angie: When did you and Krystal learn she was pregnant?
David: My wife is pregnant?
Angie: Krystal didn't know?
David: No. No, of course not. She would have told me if she did. Can the baby be saved? Is Dex Roth on call?
Angie: Dr. Roth rushed Krystal into surgery.
David: Surgery. Is there any hope at all?
Angie: I'm sorry, David. It was ectopic. Roth had to do a laparotomy.
David: So the baby's gone. And Krystal? Please, tell me Krystal's all right.
Angie: It was a close call, but Krystal made it with just minutes to spare.
David: Thank God. Thank God I was home. Does she know?
Angie: No, not yet.
David: It's going to break her heart.
Angie: She's alive.
David: That's all that matters to me, ok? Krystal --
Angie: I'll let you know when you can see her.
Tad: I'm sorry.
David: Save your pity.
Tad: For Krystal, not you.
David: Why don't you go be sorry somewhere else, all right?
Tad: You know, when Dixie miscarried, a lot of people told me it was for the best. I didn't believe it then. This time I do.
Amanda: Funny, not bad to look at, and the man can make a decent salad. Huh.
Jake: I can make a whole lot more than this, honey.
Amanda: If your ego gets any bigger, you head's going to explode -- big mess.
Jake: I think I made you smart-ass tea instead of laughing tea. I knew it. I knew something's wrong.
Amanda: No. I bet you could take a mud hut and turn it into a Swiss chalet.
Amanda: What? What? Do I have spinach in my teeth?
[Jake drops his fork]
Jake: Who are we kidding?
Krystal: I didn't even know I was pregnant, and now the baby is gone. You know, if I had taken better care of myself --
Angie: The pregnancy was never viable, Krystal. There was nothing anyone could have done. In another 20 minutes, we would have lost you, too.
Krystal: I wanted to give David a baby. Half me, half him -- like Babe.
Angie: David saved your life.
Krystal: And you hate him.
Angie: Yeah, pretty much. But I am still grateful to him for saving my friend.
Krystal: You mean your used-to-be friend.
Angie: I still care about you, Krystal. It's your choices that I don't care for, but that doesn't mean I want you unhappy.
Krystal: Well, I am down to one fallopian tube. I am not exactly a fertility goddess. And I know that David is dying to have another child of his own.
Zach: I need your help with something. I need you to pull through this. I need you to come home. Spike, your mom, and me -- we're going to be a family again. It's going to be all right.
Ryan: Don't you worry about Ian, ok? I know that little boy. He is so strong. He's probably going to be standing up in his crib when you get back to the hospital, asking for an ice cream cone.
Kendall: I love you. I mean, I really, really love you.
Ryan: You don't have to say that.
Kendall: I don't know why I've never said it before.
Ryan: Well, I won't -- I won't hold you to it.
Kendall: You can. Ok, Spikey, we're really going this time. I promise you. Come on. Yeah, it's a pretty cool toy, but we are out of here.
Ryan: He just found a vibrating button on that truck. I think it's going to be tough to get him out of here. Come on, you guys.
Kendall: Come on.
Aidan: The doll is a clue. It means something. Not what you thought, but something else. I need you to imagine yourself back in the basement. Focus on the doll in the white, ruffled dress.
Annie: It was beautiful -- my best present. And Tori was my very best friend. I loved Tori, and I loved the doll.
Tori: Annie, look out!
Aidan: What happened? What did you see?
Annie: Somebody else was there. Tori and I -- we weren't alone.
Jake: I want to be this baby's father. I want to raise this baby with you. I mean, how lucky a guy would I be if that baby -- your baby called me "Daddy"?
Amanda: Everybody knows that David's the father.
Jake: Yeah, well, not in Vancouver or Istanbul.
Amanda: You cannot be serious.
Jake: Let's grab our passports and pack our bags and get out of Pine Valley as soon as we can.
Krystal: I am so sorry. The baby --
David: No, no. It's nobody's fault. We're going to have another baby, all right? You just worry about getting strong and coming home. That's it. Everyone in this town thinks I don't have a heart. You might be the only one that knows I do. My heart would break into a million pieces, Krystal, if I ever lost you. Just the thought I might lose you -- it turned my whole world black.
Tad: Hi, Ma.
Opal: Oh, hi, honey. Well, short shift today. Had a whole slew of candy stripers working off their community service points for PVU.
Tad: I want you to do me a favor. Just take the keys and meet me at the car, ok? I want to check on something.
Opal: Sure, sure. No problem. I'll be filing my nails. They're in pitiful shape.
Tad: Angela, how's Krystal?
Angie: She's heartbroken. Oh, Tad, the worst is yet to come.
