Jake: All right, take it easy because the O.B. is on his way.
Jake: All right, breathe. Breathe.
Amanda: Oh, here comes another one.
Jake: Ok, ok.
Amanda: Oh, God.
David: What's going on?
Jake: The baby's coming. That's what's going on.
David: What? It's too soon.
Krystal: Oh, no -- no more. Thank you. You got your job back?
Marissa: Yep, and my room.
Krystal: So does this mean you're really staying?
Marissa: For now.
[Cell phone rings]
Annie: First day's the hardest. It's ok. I'll get you through it.
Kendall: Guard? Guard? I need to -- to be in another cell. This woman is crazy.
Guard: Does this look like a hotel? You'll stay where I put you.
Annie: I know why you're here. You killed Stuart Chandler.
Erica: Going for your gun? Planning on finishing the job? Well, next time you plan to frame someone, you leave my daughter out of this. Come after me.
Kendall: I didn't kill Stuart.
Annie: I did that too when I first got here -- swore I was innocent. I said I didn't kill Richie, said I didn't kidnap Emma. I thought if I denied everything I could stay in control, but eventually the lies just get bigger and bigger.
Kendall: Well, I'm not lying.
Annie: You're acting as a mom, a mom who thought her child had been taken from her. I -- I understand that. I do. You'd do anything for your children just like I would do anything for Emma.
Kendall: Ok, what you put your daughter through was sick. It's not enough that you had to -- to fake a kidnapping and almost get her killed in a fire, but you busted out of the looney bin again and tried to take her.
Annie: I just wanted to see her, Kendall. I just wanted to read her a story, ask her how school was going, but everybody told me that I couldn't. Without Emma, I have nothing. I have no reason to live, and then when I thought about being in that place alone for weeks, months, years, I just -- I just lost it. So I convinced myself that my actions were justified, that my child needed me, so that gave me the right to do whatever I had to do.
Kendall: I didn't make it any easier on you, did I? I know. Right -- right from the start I did everything I could to shut you out. Annie, you hurt a lot of people that I care about, and I'm not excusing that, but no matter what you did, you are still Emma's mother. I tried to take that away from you, and it was wrong.
Annie: Yes, it was, but I forgive you.
Erica: I saw you reach into your purse. Was it for a gun to put a bullet between Adam's eyes? That is why you came back to Pine Valley.
Liza: You know, I think about the hell that Adam put me through, and I would love to kill him, but I'd never do it because then I'd lose Colby forever.
Erica: You abandoned Colby. You really think that your daughter wants anything to do with you? I mean, you -- you kill her uncle while you're really trying to kill her father, and then you have the nerve to try to get her to cover for you.
Liza: Are you lecturing me on abandoning my daughter? Kendall couldn't stand looking at you for years, and Bianca moves an ocean away.
Erica: Your daughter Colby left you when she was 15. She packed her bags. She went straight to Adam. That's how much she hates you.
Liza: You don't know a damn thing about my daughter.
Erica: Oh, I know your daughter better than you do. She's a great girl. And now all of a sudden it seems like you would do anything to get her back, even commit murder. Come on, Liza. Why don't you just tell me what happened? You know I'm going to find out anyway.
Liza: What about you, Erica? Hmm? I mean, you're so concerned about protecting Kendall. Why don't you just admit that you murdered Stuart?
Erica: Oh, I would sacrifice myself for my daughter Kendall in a heartbeat, but I don't have to, and I would much prefer to put away the person who is responsible for that killing and for having my daughter arrested. Wow, somebody should've had you spayed years ago before you could breed again.
[Erica yelps when Liza slaps her]
Adam: What the devil is going on?
Liza: Oh, come on, Erica, hit me.
Erica: No. You know what? You're pregnant, so I'll wait. I'll wait until after the litter is born.
David: You realize it's most likely just Braxton Hicks, right?
Jake: Probably, but we don't want to take any chances.
David: So you're in love with her now, huh? That's pretty funny considering the fact that she's pregnant with another man's baby, and you can't seem to stay away from her all of a sudden.
Jake: Yeah, I love her, and I'm going to protect her and have her back.
David: Now, as much as you enjoy playing Mr. Mom, you might want to start facing reality. I would never let any other man, especially not a Martin, raise my kid.
Jake: You want to fight? You want to meet in -- in the playground at 3:00? What do you want?
David: Me? You and your posse are the ones coming after me, trying to run me out of town.
Jake: I'm not -- I'm not -- I'm not doing this with you, ok?
David: You know something? And until this last effort, all of your other efforts have been rather lame. But this one, accusing me of poisoning Adam Chandler with pills, dragging me in front of the Ethics Committee, now that one -- that one almost worked.
Jake: I'm not -- I'm not doing this with you, and I'm not -- I'm not going to say it again, ok?
David: Ok, I get it. You don't want to fight? Fine. So why don't you and I just end this all right here and now, hmm? I'm sure the Martins could use some extra cash now that Tad's brain is even more ineffective than usual, and we all know that Amanda would do pretty much anything for money. So why don't I just make it easy for everyone and just buy her out?
Jake: You want to buy Amanda's baby?
David: Why not? Exactly how much does a newborn go for these days anyway?
Adam: We're about to bury my brother. Show some damn respect.
Erica: Well, then you better ask Liza to show some damn restraint.
Liza: You know, I may be with child, Erica, but I could still take you.
Liza: Yeah, I could.
Adam: Ladies, we're having a funeral here. We're laying Stuart to rest.
Erica: I was defending you, Adam. Liza just admitted that she wants you dead.
Liza: You know what? That's ok. I did not come here to fight. Colby, you don't want to see me. I get it. I get it. I'm not going to pressure you. I just know how much you loved your Uncle Stuart, and I know how hard this is to say goodbye. In all those years I wasn't there for you, I figured I would -- I figured I would try and be there for you now. You know, something this awful happens, and you realize just how precious family is. Colby, I -- you see, I love you so much, and I look at you, and you've just become so beautiful, and so poised, and so strong. It just takes my breath away, and I owe it all to your father. I could never take him away from you. I owe him too much.
Erica: You owe him 25 to life.
Liza: And Colby, I'm really sorry about asking you for an alibi. It was stupid. It was, well, selfish, you know, like so many of the bad decisions that I've made. I'm so sorry. Colby, I'm sorry.
David: Well, this ought to do it.
Jake: Go to hell.
Krystal: And don't even bother to come back.
Jake: You know something, Krystal? You -- you've got yourself a real winner here.
David: Hi. And what brings you by?
Krystal: Well, I came to tell you that Marissa was really settling into Pine Valley. She even got her old job back. Remember Marissa? Our daughter? The one I sold? What was that with Jake? Some sick joke?
David: Yeah, I guess you can call it a joke of sorts.
Krystal: Because of what I did, you think you can just wave a check in front of any woman, and she's just going to hand over her baby, huh? You know, you have done some lowdown things, but that is just --
David: Ok, all right. First of all, I didn't know you were standing there, ok?
Krystal: And that is supposed to make it all right? You're obsessed with that baby just like you're obsessed with Little A, only now you are so desperate you want to pay for it. Why -- why don't you just save some money and -- and kidnap it? Really, just -- just grab it and go the second they cut the cord.
David: Krystal -- Krystal, just take it easy, ok?
Krystal: Oh, that's too risky? Oh, I -- I thought you liked a good challenge.
David: Now, wait a minute. I am the father, right? That baby does belong to me.
Krystal: That baby is a person, a human being, not something you can just, you know, slap a price tag on. Believe me, I should know. That's something a parent should never do.
David: What you did you thought was necessary, ok? I understand that.
Krystal: When they took Marissa from me, I lost a piece of my soul, and I have had to live with that emptiness, and I am talking shame and guilt so bad I thought it might kill me. So if you really understood, if you had the slightest clue of what I went through, you would have never done what you just did.
Amanda: Is the baby coming?
Doctor: They were just very strong Braxton Hicks contractions.
Jake: That's good. It's good news. The baby's not coming too early.
Amanda: But it is coming.
Jake: Yes, yes, it's coming, and when the baby comes I will be here, ok?
Erica: Well, I think you made the right choice to move back here and live with Adam.
Colby: Because everyone raised here turns out perfect.
Erica: Everything Adam does is for his children. Everything Liza does is for Liza.
Colby: Ok, enough. Stop talking about my mom.
Erica: I'm just glad that you can recognize Liza for the person that she is. She preyed on you. She preyed on my daughter.
Colby: What gives you the right to judge my life? What are you even doing here?
Erica: Colby, I'm -- I'm surprised. I'm surprised that you would even try to defend Liza.
Liza: Is everything ok?
Amanda: No. No, everything is definitely not ok.
Kendall: I pretty much ruined your life. I wrecked your marriage, I -- I fired you from Fusion, and now I'm with Ryan, and you're telling me that you forgive me for all of that just like that? Well, I'm sorry. No, I -- I don't believe you. No way.
Annie: Kendall, I was a mess back then. I was volatile and unstable, and you reacted to that. You weren't being cruel. You were just trying to protect the people that you love. I understand that now, and that is the reason why I can forgive you. Before I came here, I saw Ryan and I told him that I truly do understand that trying to take Emma was wrong, and I will never try to do that ever again. From here on out, the most important thing is Emma's happiness, not mine, and then I told him I would turn myself in. But first he let me say good-bye to her.
Kendall: It -- it won't be forever.
Annie: Crazy Annie. Let's hope I can shake that someday, huh?
Kendall: You know, you're not so crazy anymore.
Annie: Listen to me. Struggling and resisting, it's just going to make everything worse. It's just going to hurt your family more, so cooperate. Tell them what they want to hear. Just a little advice from an old friend.
Adam: When Stuart and I were growing up in Pigeon Hollow, we didn't always have electricity, so when it got dark, we had an awful lot of candlelight to deal with. When it was time for bed and time to blow out the candles, I was terrified. Of course, I tried to hide it, but Stuart caught on. He said, "Adam, don't be afraid. Would you just close your eyes and pretend to see the sun, and then when you open your eyes again it'll be tomorrow, a new bright, beautiful day." Well, Stuart was the brave one, the good one, the one who should still be alive.
J.R.: Don't say that.
Adam: It won't be long before they bury me, too, whether it's a bullet in my back or my heart gives out. I will miss Stuart every day of my life.
Scott: We all will.
Adam: I was a fool. I pitted you two against each other in some sort of ridiculous comp -- competition over Chandler Enterprises.
Scott: Look, we don't have to talk about that now.
Adam: You wanted to be with him, didn't you? You wanted to be with J.R., but that's what I wanted, too. I'm still going to step down, but I hope instead of battling it out you two will both take over.
J.R.: Scott's right. We don't need to discuss this right now.
Adam: Oh, yes we do. This is the perfect time to discuss this because Stuart loved cooperation. That's what I want from you two. Instead of being rivals, I want you two to be like family, to be like brothers. Stuart's gone now, but if my son and Stuart's son can work together, then he will not have died in vain. You will be protecting this family so that when I'm finally laid to rest, you won't have to rack your brains to come up with something nice to say about me.
Scott: I can think of a few nice things.
J.R.: Why don't you say what you really want? I hear the way that you talk about Scott and how Scott talks about Stuart -- his love, his admiration. That's what you want from me, isn't it? You want me to love you.
Adam: Yes. Well, do I have your word on that? Are you a team? Do you hear that, Stuart? Tomorrow's going to be a new bright, beautiful day.
Marissa: Let me guess. Krystal came running right over to tell you?
David: So, I guess this means you've forgiven her.
Marissa: I don't -- I don't know if I have or not, but running away isn't the answer.
David: Marissa, there's something you need to know. This was all my fault. Krystal was forced to make this terrible decision because of me. Now, I wish I could tell you that you and Babe were conceived out of love, but that just wouldn't be the case. The fact is, I was a cocky young med student. Krystal was a vulnerable young woman. We were drunk at a party. In the morning, I couldn't even remember her name.
Marissa: I'd love to hear about your conquests, but I'm kind of busy.
David: All right, look. Just, please just -- just hear me out. As I look back on all this now, I can't help but realize that if I hadn't been such a selfish jerk, that if I had had the decency to at least pick up the phone, I could've prevented so much pain.
Marissa: Look, David, I'm -- I'm not upset, ok, about the way things turned out. I had two incredible parents, a great home. I was really lucky.
David: Good. I have done such damage to so many lives. The hatred I feel for some of the people in this town who've lined up against me has driven me to do some pretty unspeakable things. Take Adam Chandler. I can't stand the man so much so that I was willing to put him in a coffin, and his brother ended up there instead. What a shame. Why does it all have to be so hard?
J.R.: So, do you think we can do it? Be a team?
Scott: I'll sure as hell try. I came back to this family to figure out where I fit in with the Chandlers. Do you even consider me a real Chandler, or am I just some kid that Stuart adopted?
J.R.: That was just a cheap shot that I'd use when I felt like I was losing.
Scott: J.R. Chandler gets insecure?
J.R.: Rarely. Very rarely.
Scott: You know, if we keep getting along like this, your dad will be right. My father's death really will have meant something. So... brother?
Adam: Where's Colby?
Erica: Oh, she left. Listen, the service was beautiful, Adam.
Adam: Well, it's over. Stuart's gone. He'll never be walking through this room again, overalls covered in paint, his collar messy, just to say hello. His kind of simple, selfless gestures, but I took him for granted.
Erica: You and Stuart were as close as brothers could be.
Adam: No. No, I dismissed him. I ridiculed him. My own brother, I don't -- I'll never forgive myself.
Erica: Let me tell you something. When my mother died, I felt the same way. I was very sad, of course, but I also felt guilty. It took a long time, but finally, I realized that where my mother was, where my mother is, there is no bitterness. There is no anger. And she's in a much better place now. We are in a better place now. And I know that you will come to feel the same way about Stuart.
Adam: Um, I was awake all night last night thinking. The first time in months I could think. And I realized just how much you have done for me, Erica. It's been extraordinary. Thank you.
Erica: Well, I've been a friend.
Adam: I depended on you far too much. I'm not the kind of a man who depends on other people.
Erica: And I'm not the kind of woman who puts her own personal projects on hold for very long.
Adam: So I guess this is where we part company.
Amanda: This is supposed to be the happiest time of my life, but it's not because -- I may as well tell you. Everybody else knows. My baby's father is David Hayward.
Liza: Well, that certainly explains why you're so upset.
Amanda: David's stalking me.
Amanda: Every time I turn around, he is in my face reminding me that he's going to steal this baby. And he will not stop until I am erased from my son's life. My God, I am so jealous of you. Anonymous donor, no strings attached. You -- that baby is all yours.
Liza: I mean, is that really what you'd want? You want to raise this baby alone? What about Jake?
Amanda: I'd give anything for Jake to be this baby's father. He would be so perfect. You thought so, too. You wanted Jake to be Colby's father.
Liza: Yeah, well, that didn't work out.
Amanda: How do you feel now?
Liza: Oh, Jake? Jake and I -- we are just friends. I mean, listen, I saw all those same qualities in him that you do, and I wanted those for my baby, not myself. So trust me, you have nothing to worry about.
Amanda: Except that this baby is half Hayward.
Liza: Listen, you know, I see how much you love this baby, and he can feel it. You know, that love -- that will keep him safe from David. And it's going to make him grow into a wonderful, wonderful person.
Amanda: I just want him to have a really great life.
Liza: Isn't that what Jake wants?
Amanda: The three of us as a family -- that is my dream. But it will never happen. David won't let it.
David: Krystal, don't do this. I need you.
Krystal: Make me an offer.
David: Offering that money was insensitive. It was cruel. I don't know what I was thinking.
Krystal: Oh, God. I chose you over everyone, over everything. I defended you. I lied for you. I made choices that went against almost everything I believe in, and I could live with that. But I can't live with a man who would take the worst thing I ever did and throw it back in my face.
David: Ok, now wait a minute. I wasn't throwing it in your face. I didn't even know you were there. But what I did, it makes me sick, all right? And I hate that I hurt you.
Krystal: You continue to hurt me. You make it very clear that I am just not enough, that all you care about is Amanda's baby. And then I catch you writing a check?
David: Would you at least let me apologize. I'm trying to take responsibility here.
Krystal: Oh, the hell you are. You are just up to your old tricks. Drugging Adam, burning the evidence, poisoning J.R., getting Angie and Jake fired from the hospital, getting me hooked on pills!
David: Ok, you don't have to remind me, all right? I know, I know. I do terrible things. I can't stop. I don't know how to stop. It's unbelievable. A year ago, I was alone on the other side of the world. And now I have a wife, a home, another daughter. You'd think that I would recognize how lucky I am, that I would cherish what I found. No, of course not. Instead, I just seem to be destroying everything I'm trying to protect. I wish I could tell you that I am capable of change, Krystal, that I could be a better man. I don't know. Maybe, maybe one of these days, maybe someday.
Krystal: That's not good enough. I need that man now.
David: All right, Krystal. Look, don't do this. Don't throw us away. We belong together. You know that. You're the one that gave me a reason to live.
Krystal: Oh, stop it, stop it! Those are just words. They are meaningless words.
David: That is not true.
Krystal: You are the one who said that you didn't put stock in words, that they could be twisted, empty. It's what you do that speaks the truth. Well, when you whipped out that checkbook, that was the most honest thing you have ever done in your life.
J.R.: God, I hate funerals.
Marissa: Try burying both of your parents at the same time. Sorry. How's Scott doing?
J.R.: He's getting through. I'm going to help him out any way that I can.
Marissa: That's great. I thought you guys weren't exactly best buds.
J.R.: Yeah, we got off to a rough start, but we're taking the family company over together. We're doing it to keep Uncle Stuart's spirit alive. If Scott and I partner up we can do that at Chandler.
Marissa: Just make sure there's a referee around.
J.R.: I think we'll be ok. You know, Scott brings a lot more to the table than I thought.
Marissa: He's a good guy. That's hard to find these days.
J.R.: So that's the real reason you're staying in town.
Liza: Where does David Hayward get off terrorizing women?
Jake: All right, what did he say to you?
Liza: No, it wasn't me. It was Amanda. I walk in there, that woman is just crying her eyes out. He thinks he's the father so he's just going to take the baby.
Jake: Well, that's Dave for you. Listen, I've been thinking about this whole you pretending to be pregnant thing, right? And you raising Amanda's --
Liza: Yeah, it's not going to work -- it's not going to work out. Jake, I thought -- I thought this would help us all, you know, but I just saw how scared she was in there. David Hayward is never going to believe that that baby died in childbirth. No, he's going to make it his life's mission to find that baby. I just can't risk it.
Jake: Ok, so now what are you saying?
Liza: I've got to have a miscarriage.
Kendall: Do you think I'm guilty?
Jackson: Doesn't matter. My job is to get you out of here as soon as possible.
Kendall: I miss my boys.
Jackson: I know you do, sweetheart. Let's talk about your defense for just a second. There's one option I've been entertaining. Temporary insanity.
Kendall: Are you serious?
Kendall: What, Annie and I share a padded cell?
Jackson: Hear me out. You thought your child was dead. When you left that hospital to go straight to the Chandler Mansion, you were so filled with grief and anguish that you lost the ability to control your actions. You lost the ability to be able to tell right from wrong. Is that what happened?
Annie's voice: Cooperate. Tell them what they want to hear.
Marissa: Nice try, Sherlock, but, no, I'm not staying in Pine Valley for Scott.
J.R.: You guys seem pretty close.
Marissa: No, I'm here for two reasons -- to figure things out with Krystal and David and to finish law school. The last thing I need in my life is a guy.
Scott: Hi. Am I interrupting?
Marissa: No, not at all. Are you hungry?
J.R.: I think I'm going to go home. Give my son a hug.
Scott: Hey -- thanks for everything today. It meant a lot.
Marissa: How do you want your burger?
Scott: Right now I really just need someone to hang with.
Marissa: My shift just ended.
[Colby eavesdrops from outside the room]
Liza's voice: I don't want to screw up like I did with Colby. It's too hard letting go.
Jake: Actually it was Adam who screwed up. He screwed up the whole beginning, and if he didn't, I think you and Colby would have been just fine.
Liza: Oh, God, it makes me so crazy. He was never supposed to be Colby's father. You were. Jake, I just wanted you, and you would have been Colby's dad if Adam didn't decide to play God.
Jake: I'll tell you a secret. Those first couple of months, I thought that beautiful little girl -- when I thought that was going to be my baby, I -- probably the best days of my life.
Erica: I can't wait to get back to my own --
Adam: Erica, Erica, I didn't mean it to sound so final. Could we have dinner this week?
Erica: Call Val, and we'll see if we can squeeze you into my schedule.
Adam: Fine, scurry off. Be done with me.
Erica: A few days ago, I thought that you were dead. Do you have any idea what that did to me? When your son was too distraught to even think that he could possibly go in and identify your body, I went with him. But why did I bother? And why am I bothering now, because what do my feelings matter for anything?
Adam: What -- what feelings?
Erica: When you look at me what do you see? A celebrity? A CEO? A mother? What? Do you see anything more than that?
Adam: Yes, more. Much more.
Erica: Well, then what? Tell me. I need to hear, what is it you see?
Adam: I see a woman.
Kendall: It would be so easy to say yes, that it happened exactly as you described. Plead temporary insanity, get a short sentence, and then Zach would be free to be with the boys.
Kendall: But it would be a lie. I can't get shipped off to some mental institution. I can't. Ian and Spike need me, so I have to tell the truth. I went to the mansion to kill Adam, but I'm not the one who shot Stuart.
Jackson: So you say?
Kendall: Jack, you've got to believe me, I have no idea who did it. I mean, maybe it was Zach. All I know, and all I can tell you is, it wasn't me.
David: Just tell me what I need to do to fix this. I'll do whatever you want. I'll even give up on Amanda's baby.
Krystal: How stupid do you think I am? You've tried this before. You'll never give that child up for me.
David: So that's it? That's what you want? You want me to make a choice between my wife and my unborn child?
Krystal: I'll save you the trouble.
[Krystal removes her rings and hands them to David]
Krystal: See how easy they came off? As if they were never there.
