[Annie gasps when Aidan enters her room]
Aidan: It's just me. Did you have bad dreams?
Annie: No. You know I could never fall asleep without a hot kiss good night from you.
Aidan: So you didn't doze off writing your masterpiece?
Annie: Yeah, right. Some masterpiece. It's full of silly scribbles.
Aidan: Annie, nothing's silly right now. You're in a critical place.
Annie: I'm fine now, Aidan. You know that better than anybody. You helped me remember what made me so sick.
Aidan: You had a major breakthrough, but you still have a ways to go before you --
Annie: Ok, you're starting to sound like Ryan. He doesn't trust me. What -- does he have you not trusting me now, too?
Aidan: I trust you completely. It took major courage for you to dredge up Tori's death. And now you've started to open up.
Annie: Started to?
Aidan: Yeah, these random thoughts that you've been having -- they're not going to confuse you anymore. They're going to start to make sense.
Annie: And you know what makes sense? We do. You and me. And you know what? That is all I need.
Aidan: Annie --
Annie: No, just -- just hold me, please. No talking, ok? New rule, no talking.
Aidan: Listen, I, um, I dropped my cell phone.
Annie: You're talking.
Aidan: Have you seen it?
Annie: Shh, no talking --
Aidan: It slipped out somewhere here. I don't know if it's gone underneath the bed or what, but I haven't seen it all day.
Erica: Oh, my God!
Ryan: Ok, ok!
Officer: Get away from her.
Ryan: Whoa. Whoa, guys, take it easy.
Kendall: Mom -- oh, Mom. Thank God, you -- Ryan?
Ryan: Guys, I'm not armed, ok? Unarmed here.
Erica: Officers, he's a friend.
Ryan: Well, now you're breaking my heart. I thought we were a lot more than that.
Erica: I'm perfectly safe.
Kendall: And naked, except for a blanket -- in a cabin in the woods with a bathtub and Ryan -- that's nice. Boy, this is really quite interesting. I can't wait to hear this one.
Zach: So we're not going to know for sure if he's going to have another surgery?
Zach: So what do we do? We just wait? Waiting is hell.
David: Waiting is difficult. Losing a child -- now that's hell. I'll be aching for Babe for the rest of my life. And she wasn't the first. I lost a beautiful baby girl several years ago.
Zach: I didn't know that.
David: Yeah. It nearly destroyed me.
Zach: You got knocked down, but you came back up.
David: I had my work, and now I have Krystal. But she just had a miscarriage.
Zach: I'm sorry.
David: Yeah. Well, look, I don't know why I veered into all of this. I guess I have tomorrow on my brain.
Zach: What's tomorrow?
David: Family court, where I fight for custody of Babe's only child.
Krystal: Wrong number, Adam.
Adam: I'm sorry to have to tell you this --
Krystal: I'm hanging up.
Adam: That would be self-destructive.
Krystal: Go to hell.
Adam: Charming, as always. I've just learned that you have a serious problem.
Krystal: Well, you heard wrong.
Adam: Yes, the situation could make the tornado look like a soft spring rain.
Krystal: You're a bastard. You know that tornado took Babe.
Adam: Yes, your losses could multiply.
Krystal: You're not getting Little A. I'll see you in court.
Adam: I'll be there with the skeleton you buried years ago.
Krystal: What did you say?
Adam: If I were you, I'd handle this matter in private, but if you want to go public --
Adam: What fun.
Krystal: What do you want?
Adam: I want you here shortly, very shortly. Remember, I'm not a patient man.
Annie: Why would a cell phone hide under a mattress?
Aidan: No, I swear, this is the last place I saw it. I just -- it doesn't make sense.
Annie: Haven't you ever lost anything before?
Aidan: No, not really. You know, I'm a highly trained commando, Special Ops. I don't lose things, especially not a cell phone.
Annie: Ooh, well, excuse me. Maybe this is a message from the cosmos saying that Aidan Devane is not totally perfect, just 99.5%.
Aidan: You are such a cheeky monkey. I'm offended.
Annie: Ah. Ok, I take it back -- 99.75%.
Aidan: Still not enough.
Annie: Oh, I am so wiped out.
Aidan: You want to lay down and take a nap? I'll lay down with you if you want.
Annie: You know, I think it might be best if I slept by myself tonight.
Aidan: Ok, fair enough.
Annie: No, just because I had wall-to-wall therapy sessions today, two groups sessions, one private, I'm just, like, beat.
Aidan: It's all right. You don't need to explain.
Annie: Ok. But you'll come back tomorrow?
Aidan: Nothing could keep me away.
Annie: Ooh, yeah. All right. Oh, I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired.
Aidan: I'll give you a good-night kiss so you can have a good sleep.
Annie: Ok. Thank you. Bye.
Aidan: See you soon.
David: So Dr. Shephard will be covering for me tomorrow while I'm at family court. Hopefully the hearing won't drag on. It's pretty obvious where the boy belongs.
Zach: Obvious for both parties, I would think.
David: Well, please don't tell me you actually believe J.R. is qualified to raise a little boy.
Zach: I haven't spent that much time thinking about J.R.'s parenting skills -- or yours. I mean, you're a good surgeon. I don't know who is the best father for the kid.
David: Hmm. How diplomatic.
Zach: No, just my mind is somewhere else, and I'm worried about my boys.
David: Boys, plural. So you think of Spike as your own.
Zach: Yeah. I raised him as my own.
David: I'll give anything to be where you are right now -- praying for my child to get better, setting up a plan of attack if symptoms got worse. There's no plan of attack once your child dies.
Zach: Well, there's family court. That's your plan of attack now, right?
David: Well, I wouldn't be going to court right now if Babe were still alive. She lived for her son, gave her life for him. And I feel it's my responsibility to my daughter to make sure her son is safe. You can say what you will about Lavery. He's not out there fighting to destroy Spike's life. Or is he?
Zach: No, not all. He's still high on his last victory. Custody of my wife.
Kendall: We found your shoe and a size-12 footprint, so we thought maybe you had been kidnapped.
Ryan: Kidnapped? Erica kidnapped me.
Erica: For business purposes only. Look, it's a long story. It's very uninteresting. Well, you saw the car. Our phones didn't get any reception, and there was a really horrendous insect in here, and -- I'll fill you in later, ok? So, Kendall, hurry home. Oh.
Kendall: Did you personally mess with your engine or pay someone else to do it?
Erica: Oh, right, because I really love being sprayed by motor oil.
Ryan: Did give you a chance to flash me.
Erica: Which I've secretly been plotting for years. I couldn't wait to work in my blanket -- couture.
Kendall: Well, the blanket does work for you.
Ryan: I agree. I think you look totally adorable.
Erica: Thank you. So, Kendall, go on home.
Kendall: Why, so you can continue to hold Ryan hostage from my marriage?
Erica: Because your baby Ian needs you at home.
Kendall: Zach is holding fort.
Erica: Ok, look, I'm sorry that I worried you, but I'm fine. I'm really fine. So why aren't you on your way back to Pine Valley?
Kendall: Well, how are you going to get back home from here?
Erica: With the car service you're going to call me.
Kendall: That's ridiculous -- no. Get dressed. I will drive you both.
Ryan: She's stalling. I think she's a little bit jealous. Either way, you're plot didn't work.
Kendall: Oh, it's not too late. I can call a stable and have them send over a white horse. You can ride around in your blanket. Lady Godiva in quilt.
Ryan: Why are you being so hard on your mom?
Kendall: Well, what am I saying that's so terrible? My mother loves being universally adored. There's no crime in that. I think it's kind of charming, actually. It's kind of sweet the way she does that.
Erica: I think that you're projecting your needs onto me.
Kendall: No, I'm not.
Erica: Oh, yes. You're the center of the Kendall-verse, and Ryan and Zach are your personal planets. Sweetheart, you simply cannot have two husbands, no matter how deeply you feel you deserve them.
Zach: What was that? What's this? Come in.
Reese: All right, just give me a minute. I'm just coming to say hi to you and Spike.
Zach: Are you alone this evening? Oh, there you are. Fine. So, how are you doing? How's everything?
Reese: Good. Wow, he looks good. He looks good. I bet he's happy to be home, huh?
Zach: Yeah, everyone's happy. Happy all around. So, what the hell is this? There's no card. What did you get me?
Reese: Well, it's not for you, and the plan was just to drop it and the door and go, and I didn't want to put my name on it because I thought that Kendall might call the bomb squad or torch it.
Zach: Well, you're in luck. Kendall's not here. She is out hunting for her mother.
Kendall: From my mother, of all people.
Ryan: Actually, she's really not that far off base.
Kendall: She's being vicious to me for no apparent reason. We'll hash it out on the way home.
Erica: I'm not getting in the car with you.
Kendall: Well, how else are you going to get back?
Ryan: Actually, the cop car's still outside. I'm sure they'll be thrilled to chauffer Erica home.
Kendall: All right, this is ridiculous. Forget the cops. I will drive.
Erica: Bad idea.
Ryan: You take care of that ankle.
Erica: Thanks for the long, hot bubble bath.
Kendall: What? Ok, I don't understand why -- why is she giving me such a hard time?
Ryan: You know, truthfully, it seemed like it was the other way around, to me. I mean, you're mad at your mom for hustling me away to give you time with Zach -- time that it doesn't seem like you want.
Kendall: Well, who says I don't?
Ryan: Ok, now you're making my head spin. Do you have any idea where you stand?
Kendall: Yes, I do, actually. I'm in a grubby cabin with a crazy man and a bathtub and a man who's telling -- you're accusing me of ridiculous things. That's where I am.
Ryan: Yeah, you know what? You're right. I'm crazy, your mom's crazy. We're all crazy. You're the only one that's got a grip on the facts.
Kendall: I am the only expert on myself, ok? Not you or my mother.
Ryan: Ok, expert on Kendall, maybe you can answer one simple question. Do you really love me? Or did you just say that because you thought it's what I wanted to hear?
[Annie uses the door's exit code stored in Aidan's phone to get out of Oak Haven]
Krystal: What do you think you know?
Adam: Would you step into my parlor, please?
Krystal: Said the spider to the fly. Whatever you want to tell me, you can damn well tell me right here.
Adam: But there's the servants who might hear. You know I'm the soul of discretion.
Krystal: If you called me over here to jerk me around --
Adam: You'll what?
Krystal: You're bluffing.
Adam: Fine, you want to bank on that? Ok, spin on your heel and go. That would be the worst mistake you've every made in your life, and that's saying a lot.
Krystal: I despise you.
Adam: No, you used to be so fond, but you're fickle. That nasty trait. Another one is -- ungrateful. If you were smart, you'd be really nice to me, especially when we're talking about the custody of my grandson.
Krystal: We are not going to court to hurt you or J.R. You were here when I had to call the ambulance for Little A. I know that it would kill you if anything happened to that sweet angel.
Adam: Which is exactly why he's going to live here. And that's why you're going to come in there, and we're going to discuss how we're going to make that happen. And I can shout your business from the rooftops or I could keep it to myself -- a secret until the day I die. Either way, I win. So, what do we do? Alert the media?
David: If you lose this case, no one will ever hire you again. Are you clear about that?
Jay: You remind me of it daily.
David: Winning requires a constant flow of intelligence. You're supposed to know what happens with this case before it happens. If you can't do that, you're of no use to me. Even the janitor at the courthouse could have warned me the judge wanted to talk to Little Adam before the hearing.
Jay: I told you that.
David: After Krystal told me! After the judge already had his meeting with Little Adam! Too late for me to prep him. I could have prompted my grandson so easily. It would have taken an hour at the most.
Jay: The system doesn't usually operate like that.
David: Who the hell is talking about the system? That's how I operate!
Adam: Ah, yes, yes, yes, yes. It's so good we understand one another.
Erica: Oh. Oh. Well, this is a surprise.
Adam: Yes, a delightful one. I'd forgotten how agreeable Krystal can be.
Erica: You look terrible, Krystal. Oh, I mean -- do you need to sit down?
Krystal: No, I -- I'm not staying. I -- I'm going to go.
Erica: Is somebody picking you up?
Adam: No, no, she'll be fine. She's fine.
Erica: Well, she looks like she's going to faint. Are you sure?
Krystal: I just need to get some air.
Erica: What did you do to that dim-witted woman?
Adam: Why do you care?
Erica: I don't know. I don't know. I just -- she just looked so --
Adam: Yeah, well, defeated? Flattened, plowed-under?
Erica: All of the above, actually, and more.
Adam: Yes, well, you don't look so glorious yourself. What happened to you?
Erica: There is, um, a plumbing issue over at the casino, so I was hoping that I could use your whirlpool.
Adam: Oh, yes, yes. Be my guest, be my guest.
Erica: Great, thank you.
Adam: But would you like a glass of champagne first?
Erica: I don't drink. Remember?
Adam: Oh, right.
Adam: How about maybe some cider or -- I feel a toast coming on.
Erica: To the shredding of Krystal?
Adam: To absolute victory. Best medicine in the world.
[Knock on door]
Emma: I know the book I want tonight.
Corrina: What's it called?
Emma: It's got a cat on the cover.
[Annie mouths for Emma not to say anything]
Corrina: I'll help you look.
Emma: I'm almost 7. I want to find my own things myself.
Ryan: I just asked you if you loved me. I don't really understand why it's so difficult for you to answer.
Kendall: It's not. I love you, ok? I do. I just -- I hate being grilled.
Ryan: Kendall, I'm not grilling you. I just asked you a simple question, and it feels like you're being grilled under pressure because you're still on the fence with the answer.
Kendall: No, no, you're wrong.
Ryan: Your mother was right. You don't want to choose. You want us both.
Kendall: Oh, great. Ok, first, Zach, then my mother, now you.
Ryan: Zach accused you of wanting us both?
Kendall: Yeah, why don't you take a poll? Why don't you ask everybody in Pine Valley -- or Pennsylvania or -- you know what? Maybe the eastern seaboard. Why not?
Ryan: Why would he accuse you of lying to us both if he's convinced that you're done with him?
Kendall: I have no idea.
Ryan: Yeah, you do. You've been turning back to your husband, haven't you?
Reese: What are you feeding that boy to get him so big?
Zach: Pretty much anything that's not nailed down. It's got to be weird for you being here.
Reese: Yeah, a little. It's -- you know, I was just thinking about Gaby and Miranda. They've got to be growing like weeds, too.
Zach: What's the news on that front?
Zach: How are you doing?
Reese: You know, I'm still standing. I have my eyesight and I'm working a lot, keeping my commitments. Career's on track. You know, I'm just still holding out hope that I'm going to hear something from Bianca. Oh, God. I don't even know what I'm going on and on about. I mean, the girls are healthy. I can only imagine what you're going through.
Zach: Have you seen these things?
Zach: I was watching Spike the other day. He was building something as high as he could, and -- I wasn't paying attention. He banged into them and they all fell down. It's kind of like life. Isn't it? Build your hopes and dreams as high as you can go and -- and hope no one backs into it. When that happens, what do you do? You start over. What do you do?
Reese: I don't know. I don't want to push, Zach, but if I can help you --
Zach: I don't need help. What's in the box?
Reese: Oh, it's just a little something. It's the prince from "Sleeping Beauty."
Zach: For my boys?
Zach: Yeah, they're going to love that.
Reese: You know, you're still Kendall's prince.
Zach: Well, the problem with Kendall is when she rides off into the sunset, she wants to have two princes with her.
Kendall: Zach and I will always be connected. We share a child.
Ryan: That's not what I mean, and you know it.
Kendall: Ryan, we sleep in separate bedrooms.
Ryan: It's not the sleeping that I'm concerned about, Kendall.
Kendall: We haven't made love, if that's what you're implying.
Ryan: That is not what I'm implying. It's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about one woman, two men, and I don't want to be caught in the middle.
Kendall: Ok, listen to me. This is about two innocent little boys. The only reason why I'm living with Zach was because Ian is sick. The boys need some sort of stability.
Ryan: I get that. I totally understand that. The thing is -- kids can give you a million excuses, if that's what you want. Excuses. So, I told you I would give you space. You decide. You know where I stand. I'll get myself home.
Annie: Your daddy's still not home, is he?
Emma: No. Are you scared of Daddy?
Annie: No, Daddy just doesn't understand that I'm well now. He still thinks I'm sick. That's all.
Emma: I could explain to him.
Annie: Oh, that's so sweet. But you know what? It's best, I think, that Daddy just figures it out himself. I also think it's best if you never tell Daddy that I was here.
Emma: Would Daddy get mad?
Annie: Um, he'd be upset, yeah. And we don't want to make him upset, right? So let's just keep this between you and me, ok?
Annie: Ok, you promise?
Emma: I promise.
Annie: Oh, my gosh. I love you so, so, so much. Oh, I've missed you.
Emma: I love you, too. Can you sleep in my room under the bed?
Annie: Oh, sweet angel. I wish I could, but I can't. But I can come visit you again very, very soon as long as you make sure it's our little secret, ok? Yeah?
Jay: Haven't heard much from the Chandler camp.
David: Yeah, well, intelligence gathering isn't exactly your strong suit, now, is it?
Jay: There are usually rumblings from Chandler lackeys, and they've all gone suddenly silent.
David: Sounds like the hush of defeat.
Jay: Or a secret advantage.
David: What advantage could they possibly have? The old man's creeping senility? The nosedive of Chandler stock?
Jay: Give me a break. I don't know, but from a legal standpoint, it is surprising.
David: Yeah, well, from my standpoint, all they have is a pathetic drunk, a failing old man, and a hormone-driven teen. Not much to offer a child.
Jay: The little boy is accustomed to the mansion, probably loves his father a great deal.
David: Little A loves everyone. He's a sweet, big-hearted boy.
David: He loves his nana, Krystal, too, and she lived with him for the bulk of his life. Hey.
David: Are you ok?
Krystal: I'm just, um, a little under the weather.
David: No fever. Any cramps?
Krystal: No, no. I'm just -- I'm just a little weak.
Krystal: Yeah, a little bit.
David: Krystal, you never should have left the hospital.
Krystal: I had to go and see Jenny.
David: All right, but I would have kept you in bed for a few more days.
Krystal: That wouldn't have helped.
David: How do you know?
Krystal: Look, I just -- I just want to go up and lie down, ok?
David: All right. I'll bring you some dinner.
Krystal: No, I am not hungry.
David: Well, you need to eat something.
Krystal: Could you just -- could you just bring me some pills?
Krystal: Yeah, really. That's what I want.
David: You haven't had those in weeks.
Krystal: I know, I know, but I want them now, ok? Please.
David: All right. I'll be up soon. We'll talk.
Jay: If your wife isn't feeling well, I could try to get a continuance.
David: No, no. We're ready now.
Jay: She's a principal witness. If she isn't well, we --
David: Krystal will be fine. You just do your job. I'll take care of my wife.
Annie: And school is good?
Emma: School's ok.
Annie: Just ok, huh? Hey, I heard you hit a little girl on the school bus. Not cool.
Emma: When can you come home? You don't seem sick to me.
Annie: Oh, sweetie, but I was sick. And I did some really bad things. So I guess everybody just wants to be double sure. We can't really blame them for that.
Emma: I'm double sure, Mom.
Annie: There's something else, sweetie. I want to make double sure that you know that none of this -- what's going on with Mommy -- none of this is any of your fault, ok? You have done absolutely nothing wrong, and I just need you to know that. And Mommy and Daddy love you so, so much, and that is never going to change, never, ok?
Corrina: Emma, are you sneaking cookies? Hmm?
Emma: No, I found my book. You can take this to my room. I'll get us some milk.
Corrina: Well, who's the boss now, me or you? Emma, are you ok?
Reese: Thanks for letting me see the boys.
Zach: Thanks for thinking of them. Hey, don't give up.
Reese: You, either.
Zach: Bianca, it's Zach. Don't hang up.
Emma: I'm old enough to find my own books and pour milk.
Corrina: You know what? You're right.
Emma: And also, could we have some cookies?
Corrina: If you promise to brush your teeth afterwards.
Emma: Ok. You can wait for me in my room.
Corrina: Mighty bossy.
Emma: I wish you could sleep over.
Annie: Oh, I know. I do, too, baby. But Mommy would get in trouble. We don't want that, do we?
Emma: When can you come back? Tomorrow?
Annie: Not as soon as tomorrow, but definitely some time very soon, I promise. Oh, my God.
Emma: Hi, Daddy.
Ryan: Hi. Hi -- hi, hi, hi. Something wrong?
Emma: No. Yes.
Kendall: Hey, where's Ian?
Zach: He's sleeping upstairs. David came by and checked on him. What about you? Did you find your mother? You didn't call me.
Kendall: Yeah, yeah, I found her. If she had been abducted by aliens, the aliens would be in trouble.
Zach: Where was she?
Kendall: She was playing Lady Godiva without the benefit of a horse.
Zach: Not sure what that means.
Kendall: Yeah, well, she was in a cabin in the woods with a blanket, no shoes, a full bathtub, and a man.
Zach: Sounds like fun.
Kendall: Yeah, you would think.
Zach: Well, sounds like something you would get into.
Kendall: Thank you. Did someone call and tell you the man was Ryan?
Zach: Of course, it was Ryan. It's always been Ryan.
Kendall: You don't know me at all.
Adam: I'll be with you in a few minutes. Start on the champagne.
Erica: Adam is in the house. He's not far from here. Go or I'll scream bloody murder.
David: That's not very gracious of you, Erica, considering I saved both your daughter and her son.
Erica: On the contrary. Now I'm saving you. I'm giving you a chance. What do you want?
Ryan: You got enough cookies? Are you sure? Ok, let's go watch a DVD. Come on. That will make you feel better. Here we go.
[On her way out, Annie takes Emma's picture]
Aidan: Hello again.
David: Why is he celebrating? Do I have to keep reminding you of how desperate you were for me to save Ian's life? Kendall's life?
Erica: Maybe you should ask Krystal about Adam.
David: Why would I do that?
Erica: Because your wife was here earlier. Didn't she tell you? Guess not.
David: Go on.
Erica: When Krystal left, Adam was buoyant. He was revved for a victory toast.
David: And my wife? My wife, Erica.
Erica: She looked like a 3-year-old who had just been told there was no Santa.
David: What does he have?
Erica: I don't know. I have no idea. So, now we're even.
David: Yes, at least for now.
[Krystal throws the baby picture she's been staring at into the fireplace]
Annie: You followed me?
Aidan: I didn't follow you, because I knew where you were headed.
Annie: So why didn't you try to stop me?
Aidan: Annie, you have a right to see your little girl. You're just lucky you didn't get caught. Now hand over the cell phone.
Annie: That's weird. I had it in my pocket.
Aidan: You dropped it?
Annie: Oh, my God.
Ryan: Hey, slow down.
[When Aidan's phone rings, Ryan picks it up]
Kendall: I have a gift for you. Now everyone can stop talking about poor, selfish Kendall who can't seem to make up her mind. Your divorce papers. Signed, sealed, and delivered. Congratulations. You're a free man, finally.
