Angie: There are muffins if you want. Double blueberry.
Jesse: I know you're upset. You have every right to be. I screwed up. I covered up. I lied.
Angie: I told you I understand.
Jesse: You -- I lied. You hate lies.
Angie: You did it to protect Randi.
Jesse: And in the process, I dragged this family through hell.
Angie: Saved us from an even worse fate.
Jesse: Baby, you don't have to keep up this brave front. Let it go. Let me have it.
Randi: I swear this boy has grown since yesterday. He's gonna need a new wardrobe every week, aren't you? Yes, yes, yes.
Frankie: Yeah, well, I just spoke to my mom and dad. They'll be over in a little. I'll ask them to take him to Social Services.
Randi: You told them about the baby?
Frankie: Nah. I thought it would be best to do it in person. You've had some adventure, haven't you?
Randi: He's so happy.
Frankie: We got to do this, Randi. It's the right thing to do.
Erica: Are you gonna slap me high five, too?
Ryan: That's amazing. Kids look like they love you.
Erica: I love them. They're so sweet. And their living conditions are so harsh. But their smiles and their laughter, I mean, they're just -- they're beautiful.
Ryan: Well, the footage says it all. You're looking pretty beautiful yourself, you know.
Erica: Huh. I was on a plane for about 15 hours and a dirt road for about two after that, so I am a dirty, messy, dehydrated mess is what I am. I just need a nice, long hot bath and some cool clean sheets.
Krystal: Ha ha! Erica is not gonna be happy.
Annie: How can Adam even consider lending Zach this money?
Scott: Because it's his decision.
Annie: But you run the company.
Scott: With J.R.
Annie: Ok, so you're telling me you are fine with letting Adam lend money to a man who tried to frame me, whose wife killed your father?
Scott: It's Adam's choice.
Annie: You know, you always talk about doing good and making a difference, but you're gonna let your uncle throw away his money --
Scott: When it would be so much more fun if he threw his money away on you.
Annie: I'm just saying, I think there are better uses for Adam's money, like charity, for instance.
Scott: Or a wedding, for instance. No, the plans you have for Adam...you want to make sure his money stays right here.
Adam: This documentation is complete?
Liza: Mm-hmm. Everything is in order on our end.
Adam: Good. I want this loan made to Slater as soon as possible.
Liza: Oh, you know, I think it might be time to feed Stuart. Do you mind?
Adam: Oh, no, no, no. I'm fine with all that. Mother nature at her best.
[Adam holds the baby]
Liza: Ok. Here. I've got the bottle in the fridge. I'll be right back.
Adam: It's a -- what is this?
Liza: Yeah. I'll be right back.
Adam: Oh, I don't think I --
Adam: Oh, I don't blame you. Oh.
Zach: The heat nearly consumed them. Bodies spoke what words couldn't.
Kendall: No. You can't read that.
Angie: I don't know what you want me to say. You put a dead man in a car, and you pushed it over a cliff. Crazy as it sounds, I understand why you did that. He tried to rape Randi. She killed him defending herself. I mean, you had to protect her. What I still don't get is the lying. I thought that we were so past keeping secrets.
Jesse: I didn't want to make you an accessory. If this thing blows up --
Angie: We blow up together. I want to look my husband in the eye and have him look straight back at me, no secrets, no lies, no shadows. Like that.
Jesse: This could get pretty ugly.
Angie: I have you, and I can handle it. I mean, for a while there I thought this secret of yours was about... maybe there was a woman.
Jesse: Oh, baby. That's impossible. You're the only woman that has my heart.
Frankie: Yeah. Hey. I'm just glad you're safe. Every time I think of North... if I had known, Randi --
Randi: It's over. And everything is gonna be all right now. By the way, he likes when you kiss his tummy.
Frankie: And so do you, if I'm not mistaken.
Randi: Behave yourself.
Frankie: Ha ha. Who are you, Sponge Pants? And what's up with those parents of yours leaving you like that, huh? Maybe they couldn't take care of you. Is that it? Maybe they wanted a better life for you. Well, I'm gonna make sure you get it. I'm gonna be all over Social Services, and I'm gonna make sure nothing bad happens to you.
Krystal: Hey, roomie.
Erica: Ah, there must be some mistake.
Krystal: Two cots, a light, mosquito net, and the facilities are just 20 yards away. We're good. Funny thing about charities, they tend to spend their money on food and medicine instead of linen sheets and fruit baskets.
Erica: I didn't expect them to. I just didn't expect it to be so...
Krystal: Oh, yeah. The springs are a little bit pokey. And you might want to do what I did and air out your mattress, give it a fluff or two. It helps get rid of that wet animal smell.
Erica: I'm sure it'll be just fine.
Krystal: And do not let your bedding drag the floor at night. Creepy crawlies and all. You don't want an unexpected, unwanted bedmate.
Erica: Look, I read the materials. I know how to deal with this kind of condition.
Erica: What are you doing?
[Krystal takes a picture of Erica]
Krystal: Oh, that's a keeper. Ha ha!
Erica: Oh, really, so now are you a member of the paparazzi?
Krystal: Ha ha! Look, hey, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I knew this trip was gonna be full of never-before-seen sights. I just did not know it would include seeing you sleeping so close to dirt. But maybe you should check to see if they can find you a hotel room.
Erica: I don't want a hotel. I don't need a hotel. It's just that not all of us grew up with the facilities 20 yards away, that's all.
Krystal: Well, I didn't either. Mobile homes have running water. This is called camping.
Erica: I can do camping. I have been camping. I like camping. Oof! [Coughing]
Annie: I am all about Adam's generosity. That's one of the things I love about him. I'm just saying I think he could use a little bit more discretion. Instead of throwing $1.5 million at a murderer's family, maybe he should make sure his own family's taken care of.
Scott: Family meaning you?
Annie: I'm going to be his wife.
Scott: So you're against Adam giving his money to a murderer's husband, but you're perfectly fine with him giving his money to, say, you, a murderer?
Annie: I saved Adam's life. I have given him a reason to live again. Everyone has deserted him -- his son, his daughter --
Scott: Because you're here.
Annie: Adam knows that I love him and that I will always stand by him.
Scott: Preferably in the best shoes money can buy.
Annie: Why are you being so mean?
Scott: Why do you care so much about what my uncle does with his money?
Annie: Because I have been through hell, and I deserve a beautiful wedding, and I deserve a beautiful life with Adam.
Scott: So it's all about what you deserve? Ok.
Jackson: Is this a bad time?
Annie: Not if you have good news.
Jackson: I think you'll be very happy.
Liza: Oh, you know what? I think he needs a change. I'll be right back.
Adam: Um, ok.
Liza: Come here.
Ryan: Zach is borrowing money from you?
Adam: Yes, and I'm still savoring the irony. His wife was supposed to kill me. She killed my brother instead. And now Zach is deeply in my debt.
Ryan: Why would he even go to you in the first place?
Adam: Well, I don't know, desperation, perhaps, or surrender to reality. As long as he has accepted the fact that his wife may have killed my brother, well, he might even be able to see he's not the master of the universe he thought he was.
Ryan: Zach would never believe that Kendall is guilty. Never.
Adam: Oh, another conversation you weren't a part of.
Ryan: He said that to you?
Adam: Well, he stood by while his lawyer said it for him.
Ryan: I don't believe it.
Adam: We're done here.
Liza: All right. Well, I will have Zach sign those documents today.
Adam: Good, good. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a fiancée to get home to. Huh.
Ryan: Liza, you want to tell me why Zach is borrowing money from Adam?
Liza: There's a little thing called attorney-client privilege.
Ryan: I don't care. I want to know what the hell is going on.
Kendall: I'm sorry I got upset. I was just...well, it was private.
Zach: Private, huh? Until you publish it. It's about us, isn't it?
Kendall: It's about you.
Zach: Got to be better subjects.
Kendall: I like mysteries.
Zach: No mystery here, Kendall. No mystery.
Kendall: Come on, Zach, I have to do this. I have to try and figure out what's going on here. I mean, you and me and us, this craziness. And writing helps. To just see it on the page helps me make sense of who you are and why you do what you do and how you do it. No compromises, no regrets, no forgiveness. Ever.
Zach: You're a good writer. There's got to be something more interesting to write about than fables about me.
Kendall: Everything I'm writing is true. You and me here... making love in front of the fireplace. Everything you said to me. The way you held me. That wasn't my imagination.
Krystal: Jambo. Jambo watoto. J-jambo --
Erica: Do you have to do that right now? I'm trying to work.
Krystal: I want to greet the children in their own language. I don't want to be one of the Americans who expects the whole world to speak English.
Erica: Yeah, well, I need to write this for "New Beginnings" in English, so if you wouldn't mind just take it outside, ok? Then I can concentrate. Oh. Oh! My battery...
Krystal: Jambo. J-jam --
Erica: Ok, tell me something. What is Swahili for the nearest socket?
Krystal: Oh. Not for a good long trek.
Erica: Oh, great. Argh. I lost all my work. I have to write this. Ok, ok. I'm gonna find a way to do this.
Krystal: You might try plugging it into the next zebra that walks by.
Frankie: And then there's this movie called "The Goonies" you have to see. It's fantastic. Yes! Ha ha!
Randi: He likes you.
Frankie: You think?
Randi: Yeah. Look at the way he's looking at you.
Frankie: It must be my animal magnetism.
Randi: You know, Opal read my palm the other day, and she told me that something good was coming my way. I just know she meant another baby.
Frankie: We'll have another baby.
Randi: I think this is the baby we're supposed to have.
Frankie: And what about his parents?
Randi: Frankie, they abandoned him. [Sighs] I know it seems crazy, but I just -- I have this feeling I was meant to find this baby. He's meant to be ours.
Frankie: Randi, we can't think like that.
Randi: Why not? Why can't we keep this child? Why can't we just believe in a miracle?
Frankie: Because there are procedures for situations like this...laws.
Randi: Oh, the almighty system, right? I've been through that system, Frankie. Do you know how many foster homes I was dumped in? Do you know how many foster parents cared only about the government cash more than they even care about the child they're supposed to feed?
Frankie: Look, Randi, I know how difficult your childhood was. And I also know there are cracks in the system, which is why we're gonna do everything we can to make sure that this little guy is adopted by a good family.
Randi: A family that could love him more than us? Even if the perfect couple adopts him, then what? What if they break up in a few years? Frankie, you and I we're solid, we're going to last forever. That's the kind of home we could give him. That's the kind of home you deserve.
Frankie: [Sighs] I wish we could keep him, but we can't.
Randi: Please, Frankie, please. I made horrible mistakes by taking that man's life. This is my chance to make up for that. We could save the baby's life. I need this.
Ryan: If it involves Zach, then it involves Annie, so it involves me.
Liza: What kind of new math is that?
Ryan: It's not new math. Liza, Annie's motive is to take my daughter from me and to use Adam to do it, so I got every right to ask, you know, what's going on here? Please?
Liza: Ok, so go ask Zach or ask Adam. Just don't ask me.
Ryan: Maybe Zach is using the loan to get close to Adam, but why is he -- why is he taking a loan?
Annie: I never get tired of hearing good news...
Jackson: Thank you.
Annie: Especially when I've had a difficult day.
Jackson: Well, the news is this. Dr. Nolan has found you competent to stand trial. As a matter of fact, his psychiatric evaluation was very favorable.
Annie: I knew it. I knew he would get it right.
Scott: So what happens now?
Jackson: Well, now comes the competency hearing where the judge looks at this evaluation and hears witnesses testify to your fitness to stand trial.
Annie: So does this mean I can take off my ankle bracelet?
Jackson: Annie, you're facing a list of charges, including murder. I don't think that monitor's gonna be leaving your ankle anytime soon.
Annie: Well, why? It's not like I'm gonna go anywhere. I'm getting married.
Jackson: Yeah. You do know that you're probably facing some -- some prison time? I mean, I'm gonna defend you to the best of my ability, but I'm assuming there will be a sentence of some kind.
Adam: A sentence? My fiancée will not be spending one minute behind bars. Ah, that's my wedding gift to you, sweetheart.
Jackson: So sweet. Yeah, Judge Robinson is a good golfing buddy of yours, isn't he?
Adam: Yes, yes. He still owes me from that last game. He's terrible with a 9 iron. But we'll be seeing you at the competency hearing.
Annie: And at the party afterwards.
Jackson: Actually not. I, uh, will be leaving the country.
Adam: Well, they haven't set the date for the hearing yet.
Jackson: Yeah, but be that as it may, I'm afraid, Annie, you're gonna have to find new counsel.
Adam: Ah, well, attorneys are as plentiful as fleas. Mm-hmm. It'll be no problem.
Jackson: Excuse me. I have a dog to catch.
Annie: Well, who needs a lawyer when I have you?
Adam: Ha ha. Hmm?
Angie: Hi. How you doing?
Randi: I'm good. Listen, Angie, I'm sorry that I've made such a mess of things.
Angie: Listen, what you've been through, I understand why you and Jesse did what you did. Listen, you have to know that this family loves no matter what. We are always there for each other no matter what. So there's no reason for any more secrets.
Randi: I know, but what about this whole Madison North thing? I mean, it just keeps on getting worse. What if she goes to the police?
Jesse: She won't.
Frankie: How can you be sure?
Jesse: 'Cause she's a greedy bitch. All she wants is that $10 million insurance payout, and as soon as she gets that, she's ghost. Trust me.
Angie: So you see? Everything's gonna be fine. You and Frankie can get on with your life.
Jesse: So you wanted to see us? What's up?
Randi: Yeah. We wanted to --
Frankie: We just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for everything that you've done for Randi.
Erica: We are all citizens of one country or another, but we are also citizens of the world. As such, we must unite to ensure, to fight for every child's right to food, clean water, shelter, and clothing. What do you think?
Krystal: Sounds like a speech.
Erica: It is.
Krystal: It's -- it's -- it's fine. It's fine.
Erica: What do you mean by fine? What's that? What is that supposed to mean?
Krystal: Ahh...Erica Kane, queen of fabulosity, graces the dusty little villagers with her presence.
Erica: Wow, are you judgmental. I am here to help.
Krystal: Well, yeah, and you got some good face time on camera with those kids. That'll play well.
Erica: I'm not using this to promote myself.
Krystal: Nothing wrong with a little ratings boost for "New Beginnings" courtesy of Erica Kane's great humanitarian effort.
Erica: Hey, you invited me to come, because I'm a celebrity, because you know very well that without me, you could jump up and down and nobody would give a damn about your cause.
Krystal: Ok, fine, just smile pretty for the camera and... read your speech.
Krystal: Look, I'm just saying, you swoop down with your grand ideas and your fancy words, but you don't know what it's like day to day for these children.
Erica: No, I don't. And neither do you.
Krystal: I've been hungry, all right? I've had to wonder where I was gonna get the money to put food on the table for Babe and clothe her.
Erica: Well, just for your information, I didn't grow up in the lap of luxury either. No trust fund, no entourage. And just to set the record straight, I have worked hard for everything I have --
Krystal: Yes, yes, you have, but you've reached the stratosphere and...people like you don't know what it's like for mere mortals to get from one day to the next. You think that changing these kids' world is as simple as dropping your name and moving on.
Erica: Jambo watoto.
Erica: It means "Hello, children," if you want to pronounce it correctly. You see, that's the thing about us attention-seeking celebrities, we do our homework.
[Knock on door]
Zach: Hey. I thought we agreed you were gonna call if you wanted to see Spike?
Ryan: Well, it's not about Spike.
Zach: Then what is it about?
Ryan: It's about Adam. What's going on?
Ryan: You're up to something, Zach. I mean, come on. You go to see Adam to borrow money? Adam? You don't even make an attempt to go see Kendall in prison? I mean, what is going on with that?
Zach: It's what Kendall wants -- me to take care of the boys.
Ryan: It's confusing to me, because you went to extremes to keep her out of prison, you know? You did. Laws, rules broken all over the place. Now this. I mean, what changed, man, why are you acting like she's dead?
Jesse: I don't want you to worry about anything, ok? Anything that comes our way from Madison North or anybody else, I will take care of it.
Angie: We'll take care of it. Together.
Jesse: Yeah, what she said.
Angie: If you need anything...
Randi: I will call.
Randi: Ok. I don't get it. Why didn't you tell them about the baby?
Krystal: How do you know Swahili?
Erica: I'm a professional. While you were swilling down that sleeping pill and a couple of those little bottles of wine on the plane, I went over some of the basics.
Krystal: Isn't all that extra leg room in first class wasted on you?
Erica: Mbwa jike.
Krystal: What does that mean?
Erica: Oh, look it up.
Krystal: Mbwa... dog.
Annie: I have found some of the most beautiful wedding dresses. Do you want to see them?
Adam: Well, isn't it bad luck for the groom to see the gown before the wedding?
Annie: Oh, that's only if the bride's wearing it. These are just pictures, and I want to share everything with you. I'll be back.
Adam: Ha ha. Wow.
Scott: Are you really gonna pay off a judge?
Adam: I am going to facilitate justice for my fiancée. Annie has been locked up in prison cells. She's been put in padded cells. She's been victimized and demonized and vilified. She's had her child ripped out of her arms and all because her psychotic brother pushed her over the edge. So, don't you think she deserves some peace?
Scott: Well, I guess everything's for sale.
Adam: Only if you can afford them.
Scott: So all that talk about becoming a better man in honor of my father, that was just talk?
Adam: Hmm. I pressed for leniency at Kendall's sentencing. I loaned her husband a small fortune to keep his company intact.
Scott: You're subverting the legal system, and that loan to Slater was not out of the goodness of your heart.
Adam: Oh. Nobody's perfect.
Scott: You and Annie deserve each other.
Ryan: Kendall needs your support now more than ever.
Zach: She's got my support. I'm doing what she wants. I'm raising the boys.
Ryan: My son.
Zach: Yes, Ryan, your son. And I thought we agreed that it was best for him to stay here with Ian. You really want to pull him out of here...
Ryan: No, I don't. Spike stays. Like I said, because it's what he needs right now, and it's what Kendall wants right now, but you give me a reason to take him, man, and I will.
Zach: Why are you doing this? Why are you causing all this drama? For what? Why don't you go to Fusion and make sure that that place runs ok.
Ryan: Fusion is under control. You I'm not so sure about.
Zach: All right, then. Now, let's just do what we agreed on. We're a team, ok? Next time you want to go see Spike, call me.
Ryan: Hey, you know what, since I'm here, why don't I take Spike for the night? That would be nice.
Zach: Sure. No problem with that. Got it.
Liza: Ahem. Hi.
Liza: Did I interrupt something?
Ryan: No, no. Just a little family discussion, that's --
Zach: Yeah. I'll get Spike.
Liza: Well, you didn't waste any time. Did you get what you came for?
Ryan: No. I just got a lot of bull. But whatever Zach is up to, I am gonna figure it out.
[Sfter Erica and Krystal fight over their one lamp, Erica turns it off and dons her eye mask]
Erica: Ah... Ah...
Adam: You can drop the holier-than-thou chorus. You're no better than the rest of us.
Scott: I'm trying to do what's right.
Adam: Oh, good, I'm sure you are. Let's explore the ten commandments. Thou shalt not kill.
Scott: I'd never kill anyone.
Adam: Well, I'm sure that's what Kendall was thinking when she shot my brother in the back. And there's one even better. Thou shall not covet they neighbor's wife. You honestly say that you've never looked at another man's wife or girlfriend or fiancée and wanted her? I mean lusted after her? Be careful how you answer this. Thou shalt not lie...to me. That's a big one.
Scott: You can go to hell.
Adam: I'll see you there.
Zach: You want to do me a big favor? Stay in here.
Kendall: Don't worry. Ryan didn't see me.
Zach: Somebody will see you if you keep walking out that door.
Kendall: You're just angry because I heard everything. You are never going to forgive me, are you, Zach, for sleeping with Ryan? Or Aidan? No matter what I do, no matter what I say, no matter how often I apologize or how many times I tell you I love you and only you, you will never forgive me.
Zach: I got to get Spike ready.
Kendall: Oh, see, there you go. Go ahead and do what you always do, walk out the door. Go ahead and run. You're safe. If you leave this house, I can't follow you. Is that why you did this? I mean, are you protecting me or are you punishing me?
Zach: I don't have time for this.
Kendall: I slept with Aidan. I also slept with Ryan in your bed. You hate that I did it. I hate that I did it. You also hate that you had no control, and now you do. I'm your prisoner, and this is your revenge.
Angie: You know, Randi has been under such stress, the last thing she needed was to worry about cooking, and it's not like Frankie's hands have quite healed. I -- I just want to --
Jesse: Take care of your family? I know. That's why I love you. Even though you did give my favorite lasagna dinner away.
Jesse: Hey, come on, I'm sure we can find a way for you to make that up to me.
Angie: Maybe we can.
Jesse: Ha ha! Tell you what, I'll go get some drinks so we can get this party started 'cause when we get home, you got some work to put in.
Angie: Ha! That sounds good to me.
Randi: I don't want to give this baby up, but I was ready to talk to your parents about it. You stopped me. Why?
Frankie: Seeing you with that baby in your arms, I haven't seen you at peace like that in a long time.
Randi: What are you saying?
Frankie: I'm saying... I think we should keep him. Yeah, I'm talking about you. Ha ha!
Krystal: Ah. Erica. Erica, wake up. Erica, wake up, damn it!
Erica: What? What? What? What? Why are you waking me up in the middle of the night? Ah. Oh, my God. Ah. Oh...
Krystal: What do I do? You got to help me.
Adam: Can you honestly say that you've never looked at another man's wife or girlfriend or fiancée...
Annie: Scott? What are you doing?
Adam: And wanted her? Lusted after her?
Scott: Go to bed, Annie.
Ryan: I'll, uh, bring him back tomorrow after breakfast.
Zach: You have fun with your dad, all right?
Ryan: Yeah, we will.
Liza: Just so you know, I did not say anything to Ryan about the loan. It was Adam.
Zach: It really doesn't matter.
Liza: Well, just sign the papers and the money will be delivered tomorrow. That is, of course, if you haven't changed your mind.
Zach: Well, I don't think we're ready to pop the champagne.
Zach: What a lucky kid. He doesn't look like David at all.
Liza: That's because he's not. Yeah, it's a really long story, but it turns out that this little guy just needed a mom. Yeah, can't tell you how relieved I am to worry about David trying to snatch my baby 'cause he is really, truly mine.
Zach: Well, I'm happy for you.
Liza: Ha ha. He likes you.
Zach: What's the matter with this guy? Come here, Stuart. Let me see you. Got to support your head a little. All right. Oh, what a monkey. What you looking at? What you looking at?
Liza: Hee hee!
Zach: Yeah, that's a great smile. You have a smile for me? Grr... did you burp?
Liza: You're a natural.
Kendall: [Gasps with chest pains]
