David: You've all been extremely generous in your pledges for this worthy cause, but I'm asking you all to please just dig a little deeper. You'd be amazed to know just how far each dollar goes in putting food on those hungry kids' plates.
Krystal: He's wrapping up. He's wrapping up. You got to keep him as distracted as you can for as long as you can.
Tad: Well, how am I supposed to do that?
Krystal: I don't know. But Jake is falling apart, ok? He needs more time with Amanda.
Tad: Great. I'll do the best I can.
David: So just continue to give from your heart. Thank you very much.
Tad: No. Thank you, Dr. Hayward. You know, we were all wondering, um, how dancing compares with other forms of cardiovascular exercise. Tae bo, for instance.
David: Oh, um, you know, why don't we talk about that during my next break? I've got to get back to my partner, ok?
Tad: Oh, come on, now, Doc. You've got lots of adoring and very generous fans out there. I'm sure you wouldn't want to let them down.
Amanda: What are you doing?
Jake: I'm taking the baby, and I'm getting the hell out of here.
Amanda: What? Where?
Jake: I don't know. Anywhere. Anywhere away from David.
Amanda: Away from me?
Jake: I don't know. Are you not coming with me?
Randi: So tell her you'll give her what she wants. Tell Madison you'll divorce me.
Frankie: I only told you what she said, so that you'd know what we're up against. We're not getting a divorce.
Randi: Do we have another choice, Frankie?
Frankie: One way or another, I'm gonna put that woman out of her misery.
Randi: Every time we think we can beat her, she just keeps coming back stronger.
Frankie: All we have to do is find her weak spot.
Randi: She's out to destroy our marriage, and I think she has a really good shot at it.
Natalia: We haven't met officially. I'm Natalia -- Jesse's daughter, Frankie's sister.
Madison: Yes, I know who you are. Why don't you run along and play meter maid, ok?
Natalia: Nah. I'd rather talk about what happened to your husband.
Madison: Oh. He was murdered.
Natalia: And I know exactly what killed him -- a big, ugly, nasty, poisonous spider. Look at that! Do you see the spider? It's a black widow.
Natalia: Got it.
Madison: Very nice. Dramatic. Wow, you can really play it tough, just like your daddy.
Natalia: You know what? Leave my father out of this!
Madison: Ok, piece of advice. Dial it back, hmm? You're just starting out. You've got your whole career ahead of you. Don't do anything foolish.
Natalia: You're the fool, for thinking you would terrorize my who family and get away with it?
Madison: You stay back, ok, or I will do something that we will both regret.
Erica: Don't worry about Annie. Ryan went after her. I'm sure he'll take very good care of her.
Adam: Ah. You hate Annie, and you want Ryan. You made that perfectly clear when you were both practically rutting on the dance floor. But don't tell me that you feel fine if they run off together.
Erica: Annie needs to let it all out. Annie needs to express all the feelings she has for Ryan, and Ryan then can get rid of Annie once and for all.
Adam: Or she can get rid of him, you mean. What the woman feels for the man is pure hatred.
Annie: Will you protect me?
Ryan: Of course, I'll protect you.
Annie: But you hate me.
Ryan: Hate you? Annie, I now know that everything you're doing, you're doing to protect Emma, to help her. I only hope that you'll forgive me, that you'll allow me to protect you.
Annie: The way you used to?
Ryan: Yeah. But I can't if you don't trust me, if you don't talk to me. You got to tell me why you need protecting.
Liza: My man won't let me prove to him how much I love him, as I understand him. And I would never turn to another man. I would never break my promise. Never.
[Zach strokes Liza's cheek then pulls her in for a kiss]
Liza: Let's go somewhere.
Zach: I can't. We can't. It's not right.
Liza: It is so right. Come on, we both want this. Let's go.
Zach: Yeah, right now. We -- we got to -- we got to think ahead.
Liza: I am.
Zach: No, you're not. You want a future, and I -- I can't give you that.
Liza: Your relationship with Kendall is --
Zach: She's my wife.
Liza: She's in prison for years maybe, and you can't give her what she wants.
Zach: I can't give you what you want and what you need. You need a man who's free, without baggage.
Liza: So you want me, you love her. Got it.
Amanda: Jake, it's never gonna work. You're tired. You haven't thought this through.
Jake: We are doing this now, ok? We are leaving right now. We are going to the airport. We're gonna get a flight. Or we're gonna go to a bus terminal, and we're gonna get on a bus. Whatever it takes. Ok, look, I love you, and I am really sorry. I regret that I haven't done this sooner. We should've done it when you were pregnant.
Amanda: It's not gonna work, Jake. We've gone over this a thousand times. David is gonna find us. He's gonna get us arrested for kidnapping.
Jake: It has to work. It's going to work. Or am I the only one that thinks that?
Tad: You know, Doc, another thing some of us were wondering about -- how do I put this? Is heart-healthy obsessions. You know what I'm talking about?
David: Heart-healthy obsessions, yeah. Look, I really have to go, martin. But you're doing a fantastic job. Keep it up.
Krystal: David, David, David? Don't go.
David: What are you talking about?
Krystal: Calls are just pouring in from your old heart patients. I think if you man the phone bank for a while, it would really help.
David: All right, Krystal, what are you trying to pull?
Brot: I don't know what's going on with this Madison North woman, but Natalia has got me worried.
Angie: Brot, it's complicated.
Jesse: There's only so much I can tell you without putting you at risk.
Brot: Jesse, I can take care of myself.
Jesse: Madison blames us for her husband's death.
Angie: And she wants revenge, and she's targeted Frankie and Randi.
Jesse: And that's all we can say right now, really.
Brot: Ok. But just so you know, I'm here. I can carry the weight. Whatever you guys need, just say when. All right?
Jesse: Appreciate it.
Angie: Thank you.
Frankie: I'm not gonna let Madison destroy our marriage.
Randi: Look at all the damage she's already caused. I lost our baby because of that woman. She is not gonna stop until she breaks us.
Frankie: Hey, I'm not giving up on us ever. I love you. Don't you get that? What we have Madison will never have or understand. She can't break us.
Natalia: You think you can stick me with that pathetic little splinter? Ha ha ha! Ah. I'd like to see you try.
Madison: No. No, no, you can't bait me that easily. I won't do anything to weaken my hand. My hand right now is pretty good. So why don't you run back to your family, tell your brother to give me what I want.
Natalia: What's it like to be filled with so much hate?
Madison: Kind of fun, actually.
Natalia: You're trying real hard to lay this all on my family. But I think I know someone you hate even more. Too bad the mirror's broke, or you could see her.
Adam: Annie will be done with Ryan soon enough. You'll see.
Erica: Adam, if you'd been a fly on the wall in the ladies' room, you would've seen for yourself Annie was positively green at the thought that Ryan and I were close.
Adam: Well -- well, maybe she's afraid that Ryan will blunder into marrying you.
Erica: Marrying? Who's talking about marrying?
Adam: I mean, imagine you as a surrogate mother for poor Emma?
Erica: Imagine you as Annie's fool? Oh, but then I don't have to imagine because here you are.
Erica: I mean, I'm sure that Annie has pledged her undying love for you, Adam. But the truth is Annie never got over Ryan.
Adam: No, she never got over him taking Emma away from her. That's it.
Erica: I'm sure that Annie has lots of issues. Look, once Ryan lets Annie down easy, it's even possible that your bride-to-be may actually fall in love with you. It's a stretch, I know, but there's always hope.
Ryan: You can trust me, Annie. You can trust me. You got to talk to me. Tell me why you need protecting, and I swear that I'll be there for you.
Annie: Offering your protection -- like you first did when we were together and you were protecting me from Terry. You were so caring.
Ryan: You can tell me, Annie.
Annie: I'm afraid of what I could lose.
Ryan: Emma? Adam? Look, it's -- it's killing you keeping it inside. I can see it. It's ripping you up keeping this inside. You got to let it out. Just talk to me. Tell me what you did.
Annie: You want me to admit I killed Stuart, don't you? You can't con me, Ryan.
Ryan: That's not what I'm doing, Annie. I'm not. I want to help you.
Annie: No, you don't. Like always, you are out to get me. You were trying to twist my words into a confession.
Ryan: Now, hold on a second. You told me that my little girl shot Stuart, my sweet little Emma, so it is a little bit difficult for me to swallow.
Annie: So, what? What, you think I'd commit murder and blame my own daughter for it? You think that much of a sick, sick monster? Thank God you're here.
Adam: What did you say to her?
Annie: Don't waste your breath. Just get me away from him.
Tad: Girl, you are amazing. It's the middle of the night, and those donations just keep pouring in. I just want to make sure that you're ok. I mean, I was kind of curious as to why your dance partner would see fit to kiss and run.
Erica: OH. Well, because he's dealing with Pine Valley's knife-wielding psycho.
Adam: I assume you're ready to go home now?
Annie: I am not letting Erica or Ryan or anyone else think that I'm beat.
Erica: So -- so what happened?
Ryan: Let's not talk about it here. I might burn the place down.
Erica: All right, listen. Come to my office, and you can cool off.
Krystal: I'm not pulling anything. It's just that we're short on volunteers. And since most of the callers are your patients, I thought it would be a good idea --
David: Why don't you try and sell it somewhere else, ok? I know when you're pulling something over me, Krystal. I've known you long enough.
Carrie: Dr. Hayward? This man -- Jake Martin. He took the baby while I was --
David: Where is he?
Amanda: Please, just give me the baby. Let's sit down. Let's talk this out.
Jake: I think I understand what's happening here. I actually want this more than you want it, right? The three of us as a family, to be together? You just want to hang around here and seduce David.
Amanda: That is not fair, and it's not true, and you know it.
Jake: You know what it's like? It's like you are an undercover cop or something that's gone too deep into her role. You think that you're seducing David and pulling him in when actually -- when actually you're going a little too far undercover. Actually, the only next thing you could really do is go under the covers with Dave, which you have done before, which throws our whole little family plan right out the window. Isn't that right? Isn't that right? And the problem is I've watched this thing. I've played along with it the whole way, and it's killing me. This whole thing is killing me.
David: What are you doing with my son?
Amanda: Trevor was really fussy, so Jake was just walking --
Jake: That's not true. What I was doing was I was taking Trevor. I was taking him, and I'm still gonna take him. There's really nothing you can do about it.
Jesse: Have you seen Natalia? I'm starting to get worried.
Angie: Natalia, are you all right?
Jesse: What happened? What'd you do to that woman? It's ok. Brot knows the general situation.
Natalia: I shook her up a little. I -- I cornered her in the bathroom. But she was nowhere near broken down.
Brot: Wait a minute. Your hand's cut.
Randi: Natalia, you're shaking.
Jesse: What the hell?
Frankie: Ok, let me take a look.
Angie: How did that happen?
Natalia: Oh, I broke a mirror in the bathroom. I didn't realize I cut it. Look, it's no big deal.
Jesse: Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Brot: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Jesse: Woman's gonna make me hurt her.
Woman: She's over there.
Madison: Oh, help me, please. Help me.
Zach: I'm sorry about all this.
Liza: You don't have to apologize. I get it. You were very honest. You love Kendall. Look, we're done here. I would appreciate being alone now.
[Zach walks out]
Liza: The last time I cry for a man.
David: You do realize that you can't just take my son? He is mine.
Jake: You know, I actually -- I protected this baby before he got to the world, and I continue to protect him once he's here. And, really, the truth of the matter is, Dave, a person like you shouldn't have a child, no matter what the law says.
David: It's really not your call, Martin.
Amanda: You know what? Both of you need to stop it. David, please --
Officer: What seems to be the problem here?
Amanda: Come on, I am begging you. Please do not have him arrested.
David: There's no problem, Officer. Just a little family quarrel. It's all under control.
Jake: What was that? What?
David: This fighting over Trevor has to stop.
Natalia: You guys, come on, stop! Stop fussing over me! I'm fine! Please, come on. I'm ok. Frankie, Madison told me to tell you to give her what she wants. What does she want?
Frankie: She wants me to divorce Randi.
Angie: You know, that woman blames Randi for losing her husband, and now she wants Randi to lose Frankie.
Natalia: That is ridiculous. I need to go have another talk with --
Brot: No, no, no, no.
Frankie: You need to take it easy. And besides, Randi and I aren't getting a divorce for this insane woman. Right?
Officer: Chief? You're needed down in the ladies' room.
Natalia: Uh-uh, Dad. It's Madison.
Angie: No --
Jesse: Stay put. Stay put. I don't need a posse here.
Singer: Lookin' good inside those sexy things
Tad: I got some bad news. Your break went on a little too long, so I had to disqualify you.
Singer: Girl, we can take this up a notch
Tad: OK. Care to share with your MC/rabbi/couples counselor?
Liza: What? You told me to stay away from Zach. I should've listened. He is forever and always will be unavailable.
Tad: He didn't look that unavailable while you were Greco-Roman tongue wrestling on the dance floor.
Liza: What? A kiss is just a kiss. I'm an idiot.
Tad: That is the last word I would ever use to describe you.
Liza: How about I'm desperately alone?
Tad: That's not true either, is it? You got a brand-new baby boy, you got Colby, and you have a lot of friends.
Liza: Listen, Tad, don't you worry about me, all right? I'm gonna be just fine.
Tad: Yeah. You know what? I haven't had a break in a long time. What do you say you and I go up on the roof, get some air, and we can be fine together? Patrick, I'm taking ten. Just leave them where they drop.
Singer: Wanna give you what I came here for
Adam: You know, I still don't understand why you ran away from me, or how you ended up on the roof with Ryan.
Annie: Dancing with you all night, it's -- it's been magical. Being in your arms, I -- I feel like a princess.
Adam: Well, then what's the problem?
Annie: I look around this room, and all I see is enemies. I feel like all these people want to cart me off and lock me up and throw away the key.
Adam: And that's why you ran?
Annie: I just wanted to escape all the stares. And I went up there for an escape, and Ryan followed me, and he tricked me, and he tried to get me to say I killed Stuart.
Adam: To hell with Ryan. I believe in you. And I believe we're going to have our fantasy romance no matter how many people give ugly stares to try to drag us apart.
Ryan: I had her. I had Annie exactly where I wanted her. She was just about to confess that she killed Stuart.
Erica: So what happened?
Ryan: She stopped. She just didn't -- she didn't say anything, you know, so I decided to go with a different angle. I tried to work it a different way. I tried to go in --
Zach: You tried, huh? But you pushed too hard.
Jesse: I'll take it from here. You are really, really pushing me to the edge.
[Madison sports a cut on her cheek]
Madison: Your daughter did this to me. She assaulted me. I want her arrested.
Jake: So, what, Dave? You're calling it a truce, really? Really, I'm supposed to buy that?
David: You know, I have to admit until right now, I took great pleasure in reclaiming my son, even rubbing your nose in it.
Krystal: What changed?
David: Seeing Jake clutching Trevor, threatening to run. I know this is hard to believe, but I saw myself in you.
Jake: I really -- I don't need, you know, mock empathy from you.
David: Listen to me. I know what it feels like to have a baby you love ripped from you. It's as if someone took your heart and cut it out of your chest with a hacksaw, no anesthesia.
Amanda: David, is this for real?
David: You know, I understand why you wouldn't trust me, any of you, but I swear it. And I can prove it right now. I will promise you right here and now that I will not take Trevor from you.
Ryan: I don't need to hear this from you, Zach. I got Annie closer to confessing than anybody else, including you.
Zach: But you lost her. What, did you scare her off, maybe?
Ryan: I will reel her back in.
Erica: Yes, of course, you will. Because Annie still has feelings for you, and as long as she does, then that means that she's vulnerable.
Zach: I want you out of this.
Ryan: You want me out of this? As long as Emma is in this, so am I, Zach.
Zach: It's Kendall's life we're talking about.
Erica: Ok, you know what? Both of you, stop it. Going at each other? That's not gonna help Kendall or Emma, and it's certainly not gonna nail Annie. Ryan, would you mind giving me a moment alone with Zach, and I'll be right out?
Zach: Ahem. No, I'm not gonna back off.
Erica: That's not what I want to talk to you about.
Erica: Lipstick -- Liza's, I think.
Zach: I don't know.
Erica: Zach, what are you doing?
Liza: Remind me again how I got over you so completely.
Tad: What do you mean, over me? Nobody gets over me. You sure about this? You don't need me to tell you what to do, Liza. If you want to get over Zach, you will.
Liza: What, mind over hormones?
Tad: You just have to be honest with yourself. Do you want to get over him?
Liza: I never really had him.
Annie: I feel surrounded.
Adam: No, don't think about them. Close your eyes. Close your eyes. Close them! Ok, think about our wedding. Think about our -- think about our future. Think --
Annie: Whoa! Hey, hey, hey! Adam, are -- are you all right?
Adam: Oh, I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine.
Annie: I'm taking you home.
Adam: No, no, no, no. You said you wanted to show up everybody in this room, and I'm gonna see that you do.
Erica: Hey, Ryan?
Erica: Just forget about Annie for the rest of the night, ok? There's nothing more you can possibly do tonight.
Ryan: After I screwed it up so badly, yeah.
Erica: Well, you know what? We have ignored every official break rule in the books, but come on. It's my marathon and I'll dance if I want to.
Erica: You still want to win this thing, don't you? Come on.
Singer: Live it up live it up
Brot: Come on, let's see if you still got those dance moves.
Natalia: I'm good.
Angie: Listen, you heard your father. Now, you let him handle Madison.
Brot: Come on.
Frankie: I'm gonna go downstairs and see if Dad needs any help.
Angie: All right, just please be careful.
Angie: Hey, sweetheart, how are you holding up?
Randi: I've decided I'm not gonna let that woman get to me anymore.
Angie: You're a strong woman.
Randi: No. Because I love your son.
Natalia: I blew it. I did. I lost control down there with Madison. I broke the damn mirror. All my freaking training, out the window.
Brot: So you lost it for a second. We all do that sometimes. But the important thing is, Natalia, is that you got a grip on yourself, and you didn't hurt her.
Natalia: Yeah, but I wanted to. I wanted to hurt her so bad.
Madison: Your daughter went postal, is how this happened. She smashed the mirror and grabbed a piece of glass like a knife and came at me.
Jesse: You really expect me to believe that?
Madison: Ok, if you won't arrest that psycho daughter of yours, I'll go get the other officer. Ow! Ow, you're hurting me! Ok, this is police brutality, no? The acorn doesn't fall very far from the tree, does it? Frankie, help me!
Frankie: Dad, let her go. How about I look at that woman, make sure she's ok?
Frankie: And, um, maybe you should go back downstairs while I examine her.
Frankie: It, um, looks superficial. I don't think you'll need stitches: Butterfly should do it.
Madison: Henry was never this good to me.
Tad: Ok, I'm back. I take it nothing exciting happened while I was gone?
Tommy: Nope. Just a lot of dancing.
Natalia: Look, I did not cut that woman.
Jesse: I know you didn't cut that woman. Just do me a favor. Stay away from her from now on?
Angie: How's Frankie doing?
Jesse: Well, Frankie stopped me from doing something really stupid. He's being the good doctor.
Frankie: You know, if I were you, I wouldn't try to blame my sister for this.
Madison: Well, it's too small to worry about. I'll throw her back. Anyway, you're the catch I want.
Frankie: Well, you're out of luck, because I'm not divorcing Randi.
Madison: Don't make me force your hand -- your strong, gentle hand.
Frankie: I'd keep that bandage clean if I were you.
Madison: I keep everything clean, including my record -- unlike that beautiful wife of yours. I would really hate to put her behind bars.
Frankie: Why don't you leave her out of this?
Madison: Then make the right choice, Frankie.
Frankie: I already have.
David: All right, you know something? Huh. This isn't easy for me, but I'm willing to let Jake spend time with Trevor, with Amanda, too, at my house. Look, I'll tell you what. You're not needed for the rest of the night. Jake will take care of Trevor while Amanda and I finish the marathon. We really should be getting back before we get disqualified.
Amanda: Jake, this is good for us. Really.
Krystal: You won't run?
Jake: He's just reeling her in. And she's falling for it.
Zach: I just -- I want to say one more time how -- how sorry I am --
Liza: That's all right. I don't -- I don't want to hear it. I -- I can't help you corner Annie, and I can't be Kendall's lawyer. I know I've tried to do this before, but this time I quit.
Zach: I don't want you to be angry just because something --
Liza: I'm not angry. I'm just trying to keep my dignity.
David: I have to admit I never thought I'd have it in me to cut Jake so much slack. It feels -- hmm. It feels good.
Amanda: You're really going to let Jake come to Wildwind and be with Trevor?
David: Mm-hmm. And all because of this marathon. When it first started, I was so smug that I had beaten Jake. But as the night wore on, my guard wore down. And then I looked at you, and I realized what I was doing to you -- my arrogance, my possessiveness. I also realized what it would do to Trevor in the long run. So it was a wake-up call. Something had to give. I had to give for your sake and for our son's.
Erica: Oh, I was just thinking about how you dealt with Zach.
Ryan: Oh. I assume you disapprove?
Erica: Oh, not at all. I think you're a rare man -- not afraid to let someone know your feelings. I respect that in a man.
Ryan: Oh. Well, I, uh, haven't exactly been open about all my feelings.
Erica: What do you mean?
Ryan: I haven't really told you how I feel about you.
Liza: Sorry for being so curt.
Zach: I deserved that.
Liza: Listen, it hasn't been that long since I realized that I don't have to live my life for a man. I can live my life for myself. And when I realize that again, I'll get over you, and I will be just fine.
Zach: I don't doubt that for a second.
Liza: Good luck.
Jake: Don't worry, pal. I'm here now, ok? I won't lose you. And I won't lose your mom either. I promise.
Tad: I tell you, all this dance floor drama makes me happy that I came to this shindig solo.
Krystal: Amen to that.
Tad: Although, it would nice to get in one dance before sunrise.
Krystal: Just one?
[Krystal and Tad dance]
Singer: I never felt this way before
Amanda: I want to believe you. I want to believe that you're not working me or Jake.
David: I say this sincerely, Amanda. I am not working you. But I guess the question is, have you been working me?
Singer: When the world is gone and our time is ending
Frankie: Hey, where's Randi at?
Angie: She went out to get some air.
Madison: Hello, Hubbards. Oh, do you always travel in flocks? Oh, don't worry. I'm not pressing charges. You taught your son well. He's a very good doctor -- very caring.
Angie: Why don't you just leave?
Madison: Good idea.
Erica: So exactly how do you feel about me?
Ryan: Well, I'm not exactly known for expressing my feelings perfectly. But I know that when you were in Africa, I thought about you every single day.
Erica: I missed you, too. Ok. If you don't want to say how you feel about me, it's ok.
Ryan: Well, do you want to tell me how you feel about me?
Erica: No, we agreed -- no labels. I'm afraid if we talk about it, it's going to ruin what we have.
Ryan: Yeah. I'm afraid of the same thing. Well, I'm really glad we cleared that up.
Erica: Me, too.
Singer: I light a light a light to shine there is nothing more to say when the rain falls down and I see you smiling no one's around to see us there
Madison: Oh, how sweet of you -- a private good-bye.
Singer: When the world is gone and our time is ending
Madison: You look so angry. Is that how you looked when you killed my husband? Maybe you came up here to kill me, too. Is that it?
Singer: No one's around to see us there when I feel your arms all wrapped around me
Madison: Here. I believe you're familiar with blunt objects. Hit me with your best shot.
[Madison holds a brick up to Randi]
Annie: I can hear your heart beating. Adam, it's -- it's beating very fast. You know what? I -- I think maybe we should go home. Adam? Adam? Adam?!
Adam: Ohh --
Stuart: Adam? What are you doing on the floor? Did someone shoot you, too?
