Randi: What happens if Madison gets sent to Oak Haven?
Jesse: They evaluate her, see whether or not she needs psychiatric care.
Randi: But is she out of our lives forever?
Jesse: She's on suicide watch. We can hold her, but we can't prove that she's guilty of any crime.
Frankie: Well, even if they lock her in a padded cell, she's still a threat. She's got those tapes somewhere.
Jesse: Things happen when a person hits rock bottom. And I think that's exactly where Madison is right now.
Madison: If you force me to stay in this life, I'll make sure that yours is as miserable as mine. It would be so easy. Just get me some more pills and I'll quietly fade away. You can finesse the autopsy, your husband can cover it up. He's very good at that. Go on. Do it. You know you want to.
Krystal: I was this close to throwing myself at David to get him away from Amanda.
Tad: I'm sorry--you what?
Krystal: Tad, I told you, I am not going to just sit by and watch while David blows apart another family. I feel like I've been through it, and I have an obligation--
Tad: Krystal, what is wrong with you?
Krystal: To help Amanda.
Tad: One minute, you're suggesting we get back together again, and the next, you're volunteering to sacrifice yourself to Hayward?
Bailey: Excuse me, do you know where I can find Liza Colby?
Waiter: I'll be right with you.
Liza: That's Bailey Welles. She's come to take my son. Jake, get Stuart out of here.
Liza: Hi, I'm Liza Colby. You must be Bailey.
Bailey: Please tell me that's my baby.
Madison: You would love it, wouldn't you? Standing over me while I swallow the pills. Watch the life just drain away. Think of the satisfaction, knowing that you are rid of me for good. You can make that happen right now.
Angie: Assisted suicide is illegal in this state. But even if it weren't, I'd never help you take the easy way out.
Madison: Because you're a big shot doctor.
Angie: Thank you, but no. Because unlike you, I'm not a killer.
Madison: I'm not a killer, either. You must have me confused with your daughter-in-law.
Angie: Randi didn't do anything except defend herself against your rapist husband. And we all know who really murdered him--a pathetic coward who's going to a very secure place where she will have plenty of time to think about what she's done.
Madison: You can't prove anything.
Angie: And after you've been locked up for a while, alone with your lies and your self-hatred, maybe you just might decide to do the right thing, and turn the key over to your safe deposit box so we can all finally be free.
Frankie: Madison North is the same psychopathic predator that she's always been.
Jesse: Maybe not.
Frankie: After everything she put us through, how can you say that?
Jesse: I'm not saying that she's all of a sudden become a saint. Come on, Frankie, I've been there. Lost, broken--broken so badly that I had to be hospitalized for a year. Now, when a person hits this rock-bottom point, one of two things happens. You either die, or you change.
Man: Can you direct me to Madison North's room?
Nurse: Are you family?
Man: I'm her father.
Jesse: Jesse Hubbard, chief of police.
Man: James Beardsley--I'm looking for my daughter.
Jesse: Yeah--can we talk privately for a minute?
Frankie: Well, you heard my father. He obviously thinks that Madison wanted to commit suicide. If that's the case, why didn't she?
Randi: I wondered about that same thing at first, but now, I don't know. Frankie, there's something wrong about doubting someone who's in so much pain. Really, she has nothing. No hope, no love. Can you imagine what kind of a dark place she must be in to even think about killing herself?
Frankie: Yeah, well, I'm thinking about how evil you have to be to torture a family the way she did.
Randi: Or how messed up her life might be. Maybe we just need to give her a break.
Frankie: Give her a break? Are you kidding?
Randi: What if that's what she needs to stop? What if she--what if she needs to just hear that she's not a horrible person? That's what you made me see inside myself.
Frankie: You and Madison are nothing alike. You did what you had to do to survive. She chose to kill her husband. She chose to become the enemy. And the one thing that I learned over in Iraq is that you never underestimate the enemy. Because when you do, you're dead.
Krystal: Wait, just--just don't get upset, Tad. I don't think you understand what I was trying--
Tad: Why shouldn't I be upset? You sleeping with David was the beginning of our end. And now, you're saying we--you want to make another go of it, but you're going to do it again.
Krystal: No. No, no, no, no, no, no. I am not going to sleep with David. That is not going to happen.
Tad: Krystal, I'm sure you didn't plan on it the first time, but obviously, stuff happens, you know?
Krystal: No. Listen, I am in a completely different place now, Tad.
Tad: But he's not. He is not. He is as dangerous as he always was. And I swear, if you go anywhere near him, he's going to suck you back in again, the same as he did before.
Krystal: No, it's not the same. It is not the same, because I don't need anything from David. I am completely in control. And I want to help Amanda because I don't see anybody else around here wanting to do that.
Tad: Huh. Well, you'll be hypnotized within the first day.
Krystal: Tad, nobody knows better than I do what a colossal mistake it was to go to David, especially at a time when I had lost my daughter, and I was weak. I was vulnerable.
Tad: Krystal, it wouldn't have mattered. Honey, it wouldn't have mattered if you were superwoman. It's David Hayward. Nobody controls David except David. I can't believe that you don't know that by now.
Krystal: So you want me to sit back and watch while he steals yet another person's family? Is that what you're going to do? You're going to watch him steal your brother's family?
Tad: I don't know! I don't know! I'm sorry! I don't think trying to seduce the Antichrist is a viable option. Yeah, right. Yeah, look, look. Look, everything we--everything about this relationship seems to revolve around David, you know? Every conversation we have, every--every decision we make, every fight we have. And it's been like that ever since he slithered his way back into Pine Valley. And I'm beginning to think it's never going to change.
Krystal: You're wrong.
Tad: No, I'm an idiot. I'm an idiot for thinking that, you know, we should even try to get together again. I mean, what's--what's--what's the point?
Krystal: I think there's a lot worth saving. And I'm--I'm sorry, I--I--I thought you agreed with me. I--
Tad: I do. I do. But if the only reason that we're talking this way is to prove that we--we survived the wrath of David--if you take that out of the equation, then--then what's left? What have we got left?
Krystal: We have a child.
Liza: That's not your baby, as adorable as he is. So, Bailey, what brings you to Pine Valley?
Bailey: I had to see you. I need more answers.
Liza: I really don't know what else I can tell you. I mean, your son is in a wonderful place. And the adoption is binding.
Bailey: I know. I heard everything you said. I should walk away, forget about my baby, but I can't stop thinking about him.
Liza: Don't worry. He really is--he's doing great.
Bailey: I believe you, but I have to know more. Look, it's ok. I'm not going to flip out or anything. I just have so many questions. Where is he? Who is he with? Does he miss me as much as I miss him?
Liza: Listen, this really isn't the place that we should be talking about this.
Bailey: You can't just blow me off, ok? I have rights.
Liza: I'm not blowing--
Bailey: I'll get a lawyer.
Liza: I'm not blowing you off.
Bailey: It sure seems that way. Colby said you were really good at what you do.
Liza: Colby? Oh, when did you speak with Colby?
Bailey: I went up to your room earlier.
Liza: I see.
David: Everything all right over here?
David: Who's this?
Liza: David, everything is fine. This is a client, and we're having a private conversation.
David: Ok. Then why is your client staring at my son?
Liza: Wow. Don't be ridiculous. Let's go.
Tad: Krystal, we are always going to have a bond because of Jenny. Thank god. But what if that bond is more about her than it is about us? I mean, it didn't keep us together the first time--the first time you ran to David and it won't if you do it again.
Krystal: That's--I'm running to David? For the last time, that's not what I'm doing. What I'm doing is fighting for Amanda. That is what I am doing.
Tad: How do I know that? How do I know that you're not doing it because in some way, you want him back? Krystal, don't get me wrong. I love the fact that you're here. I love the fact you're living in this house. I love to see you with our daughter, and every time I do, I know I have feelings for you. I have the strongest feelings for you, and nothing is ever going to change that, and there's nothing I wouldn't give on this earth to be a family again. But that's just not going to happen if David is around.
Krystal: David has no control over me, but it is so obvious that he has power over you.
Tad: Huh. Well, after what I've been through, if David is even in the picture, I would never be able to trust what we had. Because in the back of my mind, I would never know if what you did or what you said was because of me, for us, or whether it's just because you were filtering everything through some kind of Hayward filter.
Krystal: So you refuse to even try?
Tad: I refuse to live under David Hayward's shadow. And I feel sorry for anybody who does, because that's not living at all.
Jesse: Your daughter was found unconscious with an empty pill bottle in her hand.
James: Last time this happened, she stole her mother's sedatives.
Jesse: She's tried to kill herself before?
James: Hmm. They're cries for attention, nothing more.
Jesse: Well, her doctor ran a tox screen. And if they hadn't gotten to her when they did, your daughter would be dead.
James: I'd like to speak to this doctor. What's his name?
Jesse: His name is Angela Hubbard.
James: Any relation?
Jesse: It's my wife. And she would be more than happy to talk to you, but you need to know that we have made arrangements to move your daughter to a psychiatric hospital.
James: Why? She doesn't need that kind of treatment.
Jesse: Uh--yeah, she does.
James: Madison is not mentally ill. She's childish and spoiled, and this is just a ploy to get me to give in to her demands.
Jesse: Are you not hearing me here? You are lucky that your daughter is still alive.
James: Shall I play you my voicemail, Chief Hubbard? The dozens of drunken messages from Madison over the past few days. Begging for money, going on and on about what she deserves. This has been happening for years. And I know exactly how to handle it. I'm the only treatment my daughter needs.
Frankie: How is she?
Angie: Not good. She just asked me for more pills so that she could finish the job. Listen, I'm going to go check on the paperwork for Oak Haven.
Randi: What are you thinking?
Frankie: How easy it would be to grab some meds from the supply cabinet and stick them in Madison's hands.
Frankie: I want this over.
Randi: Yeah, and so do I. And I understand you wanting to go after Madison. I almost did on that Fusion rooftop. But do you remember how freaked out we were over how out of control things got?
Frankie: Look, if she wants to off herself so badly, then--
Randi: No, Frankie. I know what it's like to think that you've killed someone. If you did this, it would just tear us apart. Baby, I got to get back to work. Look, Madison is a very sick woman. And they're going to take her away and get her the help that she needs. So please, let's just forget about her and focus on us.
Frankie: You're right. I'm letting it go.
Randi: Thank you.
Liza: Come here, sit down. Talk to me.
Bailey: I just have all these feelings, and I don't know what to do about them. I don't know if it's a phase or if it'll last forever.
Liza: So, what is it that you're trying to solve? I mean, what is it that you want?
Bailey: I don't know. Information, I guess. Someone told me I have a few months to change my mind about the adoption. Is that true?
Liza: Well, the laws--they're very complicated. So, did you want your baby back?
Bailey: It's like I said on the phone. I just want to know my options. I didn't have any before. I mean, my parents decided everything for me. They have no idea I'm here, by the way.
Liza: So you're parents pushed you into giving your baby up for adoption?
Bailey: No discussion, no time to think about it. I had no say in it at all.
Liza: Well, that must have been very hard for you. But I'm sure they thought that they were doing, you know, the best thing for everybody involved.
Bailey: I didn't even get to hold him. As soon as he was born, he was gone. I was lying in that hospital bed sobbing, begging them just to let me say good-bye. But no. They said it would only make things harder.
Liza: Well, they're probably right.
Bailey: But what if they weren't? Yes, I'm just a kid. And no, I don't have a lot of money or a big house--or a plan for the rest of my life. But I have a brain. And more importantly, I have a heart. And every time I think about my son--the little kid that I carried around for 9 months--it actually physically hurts so much sometimes that I can't even breathe. I don't know if I want him back, Liza. But if I could just see him...see for myself that he's really happy, then maybe it would stop hurting.
Liza: Well--huh--as much as I try to keep my game face on when I'm in lawyer mode--huh--sometimes, you know, the mother in me just slips right out. Especially when I hear a story like yours.
Bailey: Thanks for listening.
Liza: Sure. Um--listen, everything that you're feeling--it's normal. It's valid. But as I'm listening to you, what I hear is the most important thing is that he's happy. Right? Well, I can assure you that he is. Bailey, it's time to let him go.
Bailey: I don't know if I can.
Liza: Bailey, you have to. You see, your son belongs to somebody else now. She's his mother. Huh? And she's caring for him, and she's loving him. And she's making all sorts of plans for him for the future. And they bonded in this very magical way the moment he was put into her arms. Oh. Oh. Hey.
Liza: He was hers the second that she looked into those beautiful eyes.
Bailey: You were there.
Liza: Mm-hmm. There were documents to be signed.
Bailey: So you know the people who adopted my son?
Liza: Mm-hmm. I know them very well. And--well, this baby is their dream come true. And they finally have the family that they've always wanted.
Jake: You sure you don't mind?
Krystal: I--not at all, not at all.
Jake: All right. What did I walk in on?
Tad: Never mind. What are you doing with Stuart?
Jake: Baby-sitting him, why?
Tad: Why isn't Liza taking care of him?
Jake: Uh--brother, it's a long story. Yeah. Liza wanted to make sure that the adoption process with Stuart was bona fide, and so she started snooping around. And, you know, before you know it, now the birth mother's in--in on the mix. I can't believe it.
Tad: Well, don't tell me she wants him back.
Jake: Uh--well, I don't know--maybe. Probably. It's possible. Showed up at the yacht club and I had to scoot out of there with Stuart. Just, you know, it was awkward.
Tad: Yeah, I'm sure it was. What is wrong with you? If every time you have a problem, your solution is deception or some kind of lie, how long is it going to be before it all comes crashing down on all of us?
Jake: Ok, ok. You know what you need? A beer.
Tad: I don't need a beer.
Jake: I'll get it for you.
Tad: Don't get me a beer, ok? I'm serious, Jake. God, the mother of that kid is a human being. She's a person.
Jake: Mm-hmm, and Liza's going to talk to the mother, the human being. She's going to explain that the baby's exactly where the baby should be.
Tad: And who makes you and Liza worthy of figuring out where the baby should be? What, you think obviously, the baby is better off with Liza because she can write a check with more zeros on the end of it?
Jake: Why are you picking on Liza all of a sudden? Liza can take very good care of this.
Tad: I'm not picking on Liza, I'm picking on you. You're playing keep away with another person's kid. It's cruel. It's wrong.
Jake: You know what I think was wrong? Me coming here, that's what I think was wrong.
Tad: Yeah, you're right. Maybe you should have gone over to Wildwind. You'd fit right in.
Jake: Ok, that was low.
Tad: Maybe, but it's a fact. When it comes to kids, I can't tell the difference between you and Hayward.
Amanda: You are exactly like Jake.
David: What is that, a bad joke? Why would you say that?
Amanda: Because you're both paranoid, seeing things that aren't there. That girl that was here before--why would she be staring at Trevor?
David: She was staring at Trevor.
Amanda: You need to lighten up. You're way too intense.
David: You're right. You know me very well.
Amanda: Damn right I do. Yeah.
Madison: Have you come to gloat? I know you didn't bring the pills I wanted.
Madison: Go away, I want to be alone.
Frankie: See, I know how you operate. So all this, "my life sucks, I want out"--it's not real. It doesn't even make sense.
Madison: I would never expect you to understand.
Frankie: Hmm. For months, you were all about your insurance payout. Threatening my family, blackmailed us--whatever it took to ensure that your cushy future was set. So now, you want me to believe that, what, you want it all to end?
Madison: What's the point in me responding? Whatever I say, you're going to think it's a lie, anyway.
Frankie: Try me.
Madison: This is all your fault, you know. Before I met you, I had a plan. Go after Randi, make her hurt the way that I did. Then I met you. You screwed everything up.
Frankie: You expected me to let you hurt her?
Madison: I didn't expect you to care. Husbands don't pay attention to their wives, protect them, honor them. They're too busy feeding their own egos. They're satisfying their own desires. That's what I thought a marriage was. Until I saw what you had with Randi. Genuine affection, true love. I ached for a man to feel that way about me. To be treasured and adored. But you're right. No one could ever love me.
Madison: That is a hard thing to live with. For me, it's impossible.
James: I see my daughter is giving you the sob story. Don't waste your time listening to her drivel. Look at her. A grown woman going to these lengths just to get noticed. What an embarrassment. Always the same routine.
Madison: Daddy, I am tired.
James: You're tired? Try putting up with a child who has done nothing, who spent her entire life doing nothing. Except spending my money, of course. A dilettante who has never lifted a finger except when it's wrapped around a martini glass. Who has never made a smart decision. Never succeeded at anything. Not even suicide.
Frankie: That's enough. You're upsetting my patient, and I want you out.
James: Who are you to give me orders?
Frankie: I'm Dr. Hubbard.
James: What kind of hospital is this? The place is crawling with Hubbards. Who's next, the old mother and her dog?
Frankie: Your daughter is in a very volatile state. We don't need you up here berating her.
James: I will decide what my daughter needs. And it's not to be carted off to some hospital. I'm taking her home with me.
Jesse: That's not possible. Your daughter is on suicide watch.
James: Nonsense. Now, if you will excuse me--
Angie: Just hold on. We've decided that the best course of action is to have Madison committed.
James: That is not your call.
Jesse: Your daughter is over 21. She's also considered a danger to herself and others. That means that an officer of the law and a physician have the right to commit her. In short, it is our call.
James: I'm calling my attorney. Madison will be back in my care by day's end.
Jesse: We need to move her now.
Angie: All right, as soon as you can line up a police escort.
Frankie: You know what? Forget that. I can drive her myself.
Jake: Hey, you know what? Go ahead and pick on Liza if you want. This is not my fault. She's the one that opened this can of worms.
Tad: Who put the worms in there in the first place? You did. You did, Jake. You started this mess, and it never seems to end. It just spins on and on and on!
Jake: First of all--
Tad: I know your intentions are good, but it's got to start!
Jake: It's a 5-yard penalty! It's nothing!
Tad: It's not a game! You're screwing with people's lives! And look what happened. Amanda is living at Wildwind with David. You're carting babies all over God knows where! People are going to get hurt! We've got to set things straight, and now is our chance.
Jake: I don't really--I'm sorry, but I don't follow you.
Tad: Liza is going to do the right thing.
Jake: What are you doing? Where are you going?
Tad: I'm going to make sure that Liza doesn't make another mistake.
Jake: No, no, no. Hold on. Wait--no, no. Listen, listen, listen, please. Please don't get involved. This is between Liza--leave it between Liza and the birth mother, ok? Please.
Tad: Jake, Liza's in a deep hole. She needs some digging out and I intend to help her. If you don't, get out of my way.
Jake: Go ahead.
Tad: If we're lucky, maybe she'll learn something. Because God knows, you haven't.
Krystal: Hey. Don't mind Tad. I think he's mad at me. Whatever he said, he didn't mean it.
Jake: No, he--he meant it. And--and he's right. I--I've been an idiot.
Amanda: It is time for somebody's nap. Yes. Ooh. Ooh, first we got to change that diaper, buddy. Hey, you want to change him?
David: No. No, that--that would be a definite no.
Amanda: What? Why not?
David: Because I don't do diapers.
Amanda: Oh. You don't know how to do diapers?
David: You're kidding, right? Yeah, of course I know how to do diapers, I just choose not to.
Amanda: Trevor, did you hear that? Did you hear that? Your daddy doesn't want to change your diaper. He acts all hands-on. But when it comes time to get his hands dirty, forget it. What an attitude from your daddy.
David: Oh, ouch.
Amanda: You know, unless you're afraid you're going to make a fool of yourself.
David: Now wait a minute. Is that a dare?
Amanda: Is that a dare? Yup.
David: Ok. You're on. I'll change his diaper. Come here, stinky. Come here. Come here. I have performed quintuple bypasses with my eyes closed. I can certainly change the diaper of my son without any problem.
David: No, no, no, there's nothing to be scared of. What are you talking about?
Frankie: You were right. Madison hit rock bottom, but she's been there a lot longer than we thought.
Angie: All the more reason to get her out of here so she can start treatment. Is the transport vehicle here?
Jesse: No. All my units are tied up.
Frankie: I can take her right now.
Angie: Absolutely not.
Jesse: Angela, this man has got all of his lawyers--a team of them--on this. He's not going to give up until he's got complete control of his daughter.
Angie: He doesn't have a choice.
Jesse: Baby, the man has got money. And connections. He starts throwing his weight around, Madison--she'll slip away. She'll be back out on the prowl before we know it.
Angie: All right. Let me see if there's an ambulance available. And you call in some of the officers.
Frankie: Oh, mom, we don't have time. We have to act now.
Bailey: Sorry for barging in on you. I'm not sure anything I said made sense, but I definitely feel better after we talked.
Liza: I'm so glad.
Bailey: Even though I'm going to miss my baby, I know I couldn't give him half of what his new parents can. I can't even afford diapers.
Liza: You know, he's never going to want for anything. I promise. He's going to have a great life. You know? And so will you.
Bailey: Do me a favor. The next time you see the parents, tell them to give my son--their son--a few extra hugs and kisses, ok? You don't have to say who they're from. I just want him to have all the love he can possibly get.
Liza: Consider it done. Come on.
Liza: Hi. Oh--
Liza: Um--Tad, I'm in a--I'm in a meeting with a client. It's private.
Tad: Oh, don't--don't worry about me. I'm fine.
Bailey: Thanks again for the advice. You're right. I should forget about my baby, for his sake and mine. But I won't be able to. I'll think about him every day the rest of my life. I got to go.
Liza: Bailey, wait. Listen, the next time that I talk to the--the adoptive parents, let me see what I can do.
Bailey: Really? You'd do that for me?
David: Tell my son the traitor this is a brand-new shirt.
Amanda: Well, wear a raincoat next time.
David: Yeah, well, you wouldn't have laughed so much if you were the one being spritzed.
Amanda: Oh, please. It happens to me all the time. It was your christening. Yes, it was.
David: Wait a minute. That reminds me. We have to get Trevor christened.
Amanda: Um--I like that idea.
[Loud knocking on door]
Amanda: Who's there, huh?
Liza: So how did you know that Bailey was here?
Tad: Liza, where do you think Jake took Stuart when he ran out of here?
Liza: I am going to kill him for opening up his big mouth.
Tad: She seems like a nice kid.
Tad: She's certainly a whole lot younger than I thought she'd be.
Liza: Damn you.
Liza: Don't you "what?" Tad, I saw that look that you gave me when Bailey was leaving.
Tad: I don't recall a look. Ok. I admit it. I was sending you a psychic message. I was willing you to do the right thing. And you took the first step.
Liza: The right thing is not giving my son up.
Jake: So I just wanted to take David up on his offer about spending a little more time with my family. I mean, that's if--if the offer still stands.
David: Of course it does. It's a beautiful evening. Why don't you take Amanda and Trevor and go hang out in the park?
Jake: Well, if it's all the same to you, I'd rather stay here and why don't you take a walk in the park?
Angie: I'm ashamed to admit this, but for just one split second, I was tempted to swap a handful of pills for those tapes.
Jesse: Mm-hmm, I hear you, babe. But we both know you would never do that.
Angie: Of course not. Oh, Jesse, I just want Madison out of our lives so badly.
Jesse: She's on her way out.
James: This is my attorney, Allen Hays.
Allen: Where is Madison?
Jesse: Well, I'm sorry, counselor, but she's gone. You're too late.
Madison: I wish I were the kind of person you could like. Respect. Maybe even trust. What will happen to me at Oak Haven?
Frankie: You're going to get the help that you need.
Madison: And then what? Back to living alone? Or worse, held prisoner by my parents? Do you have any idea how lucky you are to have a wife that loves you?
Madison: This is the key to my safe deposit box. Everything's in there. The hotel security tapes, the audio tapes. I want you to have your life back. You and Randi.
Frankie: Is this for real? Or is this another one of your games?
Madison: No games. No tricks, I promise you. I want you to have this key. Please. Take it.
