Erica: You are so supportive.
Ryan: Well, you give me something to be supportive about. You make it very easy to get behind an idea.
Erica: And you just make me feel so extra alive. I just love that about you. Uh, I am sure now I better get in touch with Legal and with Accounting and see if we can pull this whole thing off. I mean, doing a whole nonprofit line for fusion is gonna be a lot more complicated than just, you know, checking off our box on our tax return. You know what I mean? Ok. Look. When I just said the word "love," I meant that strictly as a term of endearment, I mean, no big revelation or anything like that. I just meant, you know, it's really like I love these boots, oh, not that I think of you as a pair of boots.
Ryan: No, no. It's ok. I understand. I happen to love those boots, too.
Erica: Oh, thanks.
Erica: So, I mean, it shouldn't throw you at all. You were surprised to hear that word from me.
Ryan: Well, you said it was no big deal, right? Why? Did you mean it for it to be something more?
Colby: And you're not gonna get away with sneaking any sweets this time.
Annie: Yeah. Colby is right. You have to listen to doctors' orders. I'm going to make sure of it.
Adam: I was not unconscious when he was sounding out the dos and don'ts.
Scott: How are you feeling?
Adam: Fine. Fine, really. Well, a little odd, how one might feel with a computer in his chest telling his heart when to beat.
Annie: My $6 million man.
Adam: Oh, bah, I'm worth 60 million if a penny.
Annie: You should go upstairs and get in bed.
Adam: No. I want to take a shower.
Annie: Ok. Well, just be careful, ok? Remember what the doctor said about the incision.
Adam: Yeah. Right, right, right, right. Watch the incision.
Adam: All right.
Scott: Well, he seems back to his old impossible self.
Colby: I hope you meant what you said about making sure he follows all the doctors' orders.
Annie: Of course, I did. What are you talking about?
Colby: The part where he isn't supposed to get, uh, excited in any way.
David: Call them. Call them. Go ahead. Tell them exactly how I've destroyed their lives. If you can do it, go ahead, Greenlee. I deserve it, but it's up to you.
Greenlee: I can't. You saved my life. I can't blow yours apart.
David: But you expect me to do it, don't you? You want me to confess all my latest sins to the people of Pine Valley.
Woman on P.A.: Paging Dr. Bender. Dr. Bender, please.
Angie: I've got the results of David's DNA test. Comparing it against Trevor's DNA, it is virtually impossible that David is Trevor's father.
Amanda: Oh, my God. Oh, my.
Jake: Mwah. So, well, that means it comes down to you and me. One of us is Trevor's real dad.
Amanda: But it's not David's? After all we've been through -- oh -- when will we know? When will we know who the father is?
[Cell phone rings]
Angie: We're about to find out. The results are in.
Annie: If you were referring to Adam's and my sex life, that is none of your business.
Colby: I'm just reminding you what the doctors warned him about.
Annie: The doctors also said that sex was entirely up to him and how he was feeling, again, a discussion that does not involve you at all.
Colby: I'm just worried about him. He always tries to play a tough guy, but he just had a major procedure. Maybe until he gets used to the pacemaker, and we know it's working ok, he should be left alone at night.
Annie: Are you suggesting I move out of our bedroom?
Scott: No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No. No, of course not. A decision like that is strictly between you and Adam. Colby is just expressing what all of us are feeling -- concern for him.
Annie: Concern is fine, but I have no intention of moving anywhere.
Emma: Mommy, Mommy, look what I made.
Annie: Oh, show me, sweetheart.
Scott: What do you think you're doing, huh?
Colby: I am trying to keep my father alive.
Erica: I just told you, it was nothing. It was just a throwaway compliment. That's all.
Erica: Oh, you're bad.
Ryan: Yeah. I am a little bad. I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. I like to see you squirm, but, hey, look. Look. We have exactly what we said, exactly what we talked about -- just two people enjoying each other's company, having some fun together, nothing more, nothing less, no reason to throw on something as earth-shattering as love into the mix.
Erica: Oh, exactly. I mean, why ruin a perfectly good thing?
Ryan: Well, now that we have that cleared up, why don't we get started on this idea?
Ryan: Randi, hi. Could you call Sam down in Legal and get his team together and try and put a meeting with Erica and me in the next couple of days, please?
Randi: Will do, oh, and, Ryan?
Randi: Happy birthday.
Ryan: Thank you, Randi.
Erica: It's your birthday? I had no idea.
Greenlee: I know Amanda and Jake. If they find out the truth -- and you know they will sooner or later -- no one will ever, ever forgive you. You've only got one shot of that happening -- if you're the one that tells them the truth first. You only recently found out about Trevor's paternity, and it totally screwed with your head, so you didn't tell them, but you need to tell them. You need to do the right thing before someone else tells them first.
David: After what they've done to me, do you really think I give a damn how they feel?
Greenlee: Maybe not, but you care about how Marissa feels and Little Adam and how Trevor will feel in the future. I mean, God, David, on top of everything else, you've made them all believe that you're dying. Stop this now. Don't let them keep thinking that baby isn't Jake's. Don't let Trevor go through life with you lying to him. I know what it's like. For a huge part of my life, I didn't know who my real father was. Roger and my mother lied to me for years, and it was awful. You told me that you love Trevor as if he were your own. Well, how do you think he's gonna feel when he finds out all these things that you've done? The only way you're ever going to have a relationship with him or Marissa or Little Adam is to tell the truth now. Please.
Man on P.A.: Michael Crawford, 340. Michael Crawford, please call 340.
Frankie: I haven't read it yet. She outranks me.
Angie: Well, there's no doubt. Jake, you are Trevor's father.
Amanda: Oh, I love you.
Jake: Thank you. Thank you.
Angie: Yeah. Sometimes the good guys win.
Frankie: So, should I go buy a cigar for the proud papa? What do you say, Jake?
Angie: I think the proud papa needs a minute to let this sink in.
Amanda: Fairy tale time, huh?
Jake: I have a son. I have a son. Hi. Hi. I'm your dad.
Amanda: Ha ha ha!
[Jake and Amanda kiss]
Gayle: David left without saying a word. He wasn't originally planning on going back tonight.
Gayle: He's made a big decision, hasn't he?
Greenlee: Yeah. He did. He's going back there to tell them the truth -- about himself, not me.
Gayle: I'm glad. I just hope it doesn't break him. He's been through so much.
Greenlee: He's not an easy man to care about, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who does.
Gayle: I admire him a great deal.
Greenlee: Yeah. He's doing the right thing.
Gayle: How are you feeling?
Greenlee: You know, I'm still sore, but I'm getting there. Still no progress on my legs, though.
Gayle: Dr. Clayton said not to expect much yet. Could be a while, but you've been recovering quickly. It's almost February.
Greenlee: Oh, my God, it's Ryan's birthday.
Annie: Look at how beautiful this is. You have gotten so good at drawing.
Emma: It's for Daddy's birthday.
Annie: Oh, right. I forgot that was today.
Emma: I wish he was here.
Annie: I'll tell you what. I have an idea for a special surprise. You want to hear it?
Scott: Why you got to poke around the nest like that, huh? I thought you wanted to keep a low profile with her.
Colby: I do.
Scott: Ok. Well, if you really want to play up to her and lay low, suggesting that she is trying to kill him with sex is not the way to do it.
Colby: She is playing a game, and if we're not careful, game over. Whodunit? Annie in the bedroom with a negligee.
Erica: We should do something for your birthday.
Ryan: Uh, no. Actually, we shouldn't, really. No. It's -- birthdays really don't mean that much to me anymore these days. They just are a reminder that time is ticking away, so it's -- speaking of which, you know, truthfully, I have a ton of work at Cambias right now that I got to get to, ok, but thank you, anyway. I appreciate it, and I look very forward to working with you on this new idea.
Erica: And you know how I love your input. I don't mean love love. You know what I mean.
Ryan: Hmm. I'll call you later.
Madison: Oh, hey, before you go, could you just ok these for us? Marketing made all the changes you and Erica asked for, sent then back up for you to sign off on them.
Ryan: Oh, I really got to get going. Just show them to the boss lady. If she likes them, then so do I.
Madison: Oh, happy birthday, by the way.
Ryan: Thank you very much.
[Cell phone rings]
Ryan: Hey, Princess.
Emma: Happy birthday.
Ryan: Ha ha ha! Thank you, my love.
Emma: I miss you.
Ryan: I miss you, too.
Opal: It's me. Get over here now.
Erica: Why? What have you done?
Opal: Kind of what we talked about.
Erica: Define "kind of what we talked about." Opal, I told you, I just wanted it to be a very simple dinner for two. He's not big on celebrating his birthday.
Opal: Would you just get your fanny over here quick before Ryan gets back?
[Hangs up phone]
Frankie: I'm glad to be the bearer of good news.
Frankie: I got to get back to my rounds.
Jake: Frankie, thank you.
Frankie: Hey, you're welcome.
[Frankie kisses the top of Trevor's head and chuckles]
J.R.: Trevor is one lucky kid.
Jake: I think I'm gonna take my wife and my son home. "My son." That's a really good feeling to say that. Bye. Ready?
Angie: Well, I guess there are some happy endings to be found around here, after all.
J.R.: Yeah, and Jake is a great guy. Trevor is always gonna have a safe place to go home, a wonderful father.
Marissa: Why don't we go on home ourselves?
J.R.: Actually, I have something I have to take care of. Catch up with you in a bit?
J.R.: All right.
Angie: Is he all right?
Marissa: Yeah. Yeah. He's happy that Trevor has Jake as a dad, but -- I don't know -- I don't think he would've minded if it had turned out to have been him instead.
Erica: [Gasps] Ohh --
Opal: Oh, well, you sure took your sweet time getting on over here. I couldn't wait any longer. I just went ahead, and I iced a little inscription on the cake. What do you think?
Erica: Opal, I asked you just for a little help, just to help me set up a simple surprise birthday party for him, but look at this. You have just -- oh, Opal, it looks like a den of seduction. Where's the string quartet?
Opal: Oh, well, as a matter of fact, right there, miss smarty pants.
Erica: Oh, no. This is so way over the top, Opal. What? "To my darling Ryan on his birthday"?
Erica: No, no, no. Opal, this sends completely the wrong message.
Erica: He's a friend, Opal.
Opal: Oh, a friend. Ok. Well, fine. I'll fix it, all right? Don't worry. I will fix it right now. There you have it.
Erica: "To my darling fred Ryan"?
Opal: Well, I'm sorry. I didn't have a lot of space to work with. You could say you had a cold. "To my darling fred Ryan."
Erica: Ha ha ha.
Opal: Oh, come on. Come on now. Loosen up. Celebrate the guy's birthday proper-like. I mean, you're the one who always tells me how whenever you're down, he's the one that brings you back up again. Well, come on. Show a little gratitude.
Erica: I don't need you to tell me how to handle a man. Thank you.
Opal: Oh, come on. Now come on.
Erica: Will you stop that?
Erica: Opal, Ryan is a good friend, period. End of discussion.
Opal: You know, you keep on saying that. "He's just a good friend." Well, I just don't understand why you keep trying to throw away the beginning of something so beautiful. I mean, Ryan -- it's not his fault that you just don't seem to be able to get past your own hang-ups long enough to just celebrate. Give him the birthday bash he deserves.
Ryan: Emma called me. She said that she wanted to see me.
Colby: Yeah. Sure. Come on in.
Emma: Happy birthday!
Ryan: Oh, thank you again. Thank you so much. Hey, Emma called me. I know it's not a scheduled day for me, but she wanted to --
Annie: It's ok. I know.
Emma: Mommy told me to call you.
Colby: I'm gonna let you guys visit. Happy birthday, Ryan.
Ryan: Oh, thanks.
Emma: Can we have cake and ice cream like last year?
Ryan: Ha ha ha!
Annie: I can have Lucretia put something together, last-minute birthday party.
Ryan: No. That's ok. This is all the birthday present I need right here -- just a kiss and a hug from you. Well, I guess -- I guess I better get back to work, huh? Hey, thank you for calling me, giving me a big hug and a kiss for my birthday. Oh, my goodness, that made my day.
[Ryan kisses Emma on both cheeks]
Emma: I love you, Daddy.
Annie: You all right?
Ryan: Yeah. Thank you for that, for letting me see her.
Annie: Happy birthday, Ryan.
Greenlee: A whole year, already his birthday again.
Gayle: Were you with him on his birthday last year?
Greenlee's voice: Yay! Wow, you are really good at that. Ok. What goes good with birthday cake, huh? What?
Emma's voice: Ice cream.
Greenlee's voice: Ice cream? You think? Look. Look what I have -- ice cream.
Ryan's voice: Oh, man, look at all that ice cream.
Greenlee's voice: What made you so smart, Emma?
Ryan's voice: Excuse me. That would be me, thank you very much.
Greenlee's voice: Really?
Ryan's voice: Yeah.
Greenlee's voice: What is that there?
Ryan's voice: What's what? What are you talking about?
Greenlee's voice: Oop! Ha ha! Made you look. Ha ha ha! Your daddy is so silly.
Ryan's voice: You are a naughty girl.
Greenlee's voice: Yeah. You know I am.
Gayle: I'll let you get some sleep.
Greenlee: Happy birthday, Ryan.
Jake: Yeah. Well, you kidding me? Tad, it's like a second Christmas for us. Well, I love you, brother. Yeah. Yes. I will. Ok. Bye. Tad. He wants to give me the -- this is what he wants to do to you, but I say this is from me. Forget that one.
Jake: I love you.
Amanda: I love you, too. We're home, big guy. Can you believe this? We are actually home together with our baby. Mm. Yes.
Jake: Hi. Can I tell you a secret?
Jake: I have prayed for this moment right here every single night, that it would be just the three of us, both of you would be mine, and now that it's happening, it's better than I ever hoped, really.
Amanda: Well, Trevor is all ours, and David cannot hurt us anymore. Yes.
Jake: Man, it's been a tough road. There's something else I want to tell you, too. I made a lot of mistakes along the way, you know, and when I said to you that I couldn't raise him if he was another man's, I didn't mean that. That was wrong, and it's not true, you know? I was talking out of pain and frustration, and it's just not true. Nothing in this world could stop me from loving him or you. I love you.
Marissa: Family has always had a strong pull on J.R., now more than ever with Adam getting that pacemaker put in and J.R. having cancer, neither one of them willing to give an inch over Annie. It's just been a tough time.
Angie: And how would you have felt if J.R. had turned out to be Trevor's father?
Marissa: I'm really relieved how it all turned out, actually. We've just got so much going on in our lives already, it only would've complicated things that much more, and Amanda and Jake seem really happy. I think that things are as they should be.
Angie: Well, lookee, lookee. That sure was a quick trip to Malaysia.
Annie: Do you think the doctors told us everything?
Scott: Why wouldn't they have?
Annie: I don't know. Maybe Adam had them paint a rosier picture for us. Maybe he's sicker than he's letting on.
Scott: Or maybe you're just letting your fears get the best of you. He looks a lot better now than he did before he had that pacemaker put in.
Annie: Yeah. It's just, this whole thing scares the hell out of me.
Scott: Well, of course. It's understandable, but maybe you're picking up on his fears, too. I mean, something like this has got to give even a man like him pause, make him think about his own mortality.
Annie: Maybe. Still, I'm worried about him.
Adam: No need to be worried. All I needed was a shower. I feel marvelous.
Madison: Hey, welcome back.
Ryan: Thank you. Thank you. Is Erica still here?
Madison: No. She left a little while ago. I don't know where she went. Randi is wrangling with Marketing. Is there something I could help you with?
Ryan: No. No. That's all right. I just came by to see if Erica was still here. Ahh --
Madison: Is everything ok?
Ryan: Yeah. Everything is fine. It's fine. I just got to get home. That's all.
Madison: Ok. I realize that what I'm about to say might put my job at risk, but before you came up here, you were downstairs at ConFusion, weren't you, having a little bit more than a soda.
Ryan: Guilty as charged. It's a little birthday celebration for myself. That's all.
Madison: Been there. I've also made the mistake of driving myself home after a couple, so why don't I give you a ride, huh?
Ryan: That sounds like a good idea, but first, you have to answer a question for me.
Madison: Ok. What's that?
Ryan: How come you haven't asked about what you walked in on the other day?
Madison: You mean, you and Erica? She already explained that to me.
Ryan: She did?
Ryan: Well, then maybe you can explain it to me, please. I'm serious. What -- what do you think?
Madison: I think Erica is one of the most extraordinary people I've ever met, and I think the two of you make a great team, both in business and whatever else you might choose. Personally, I don't know why you would want to hide it.
Ryan: Yeah. Well, we're just taking things one day at a time, you know, but I will tell you this, that if you're lucky enough in this life to find somebody that you can -- you can -- you can -- you can escape with when you want to, somebody you can just sort of sit back and be yourself with, you know, no games, then that's what Erica and I have right now, and -- you're right -- there's no reason to hide it. Why would anybody want to hide that? Certainly not anything to whisper about in the office corridors.
Madison: Duly noted. Why don't we get you home now?
Ryan: That's a great idea.
[Heart monitor beeping]
Ryan's voice: Ha ha ha!
Greenlee's voice: Boy, she had fun.
Ryan's voice: Thank you for making it so much fun. It was you. Usually, I hate birthdays. I can't stand them. This was fun. It was a blast. I loved it.
Greenlee's voice: Hold still. You have icing.
Ryan's voice: Yeah, I have icing because you pushed my cake in my face.
Greenlee's voice: Ha ha ha!
Ryan's voice: Speaking of that, you know, we got a lot more cake. We can have a little bit more fun with some icing.
Greenlee's voice: I have a better idea.
Ryan's voice: Yeah?
Greenlee's voice: Your present. Sit. Sit.
Ryan's voice: My present!
Greenlee's voice: No. My present. You're gonna give me a foot rub for throwing you such a fabulous birthday party.
Ryan's voice: I see. Thank you for gift-wrapping it.
Greenlee's voice: So you know I'm doing my part, saving the trees. Ha! Oh! Ha! Ha ha ha! Don't.
Ryan's voice: What about right there?
Greenlee's voice: No! Ha ha! Ha!
Greenlee: Oh, my God. Gayle. Gayle!
Gayle: What is it? What's wrong?
Greenlee: My feet, they're tingling. Poke them or something. Hurry. Anything. Anything. Just use anything. Ow!
Greenlee: Oh, my God. That's the most beautiful pain I've ever felt.
Angie: I'll be in my office if you want to talk afterward.
Marissa: Did you even go to Malaysia?
David: No. That was a lie, and, unfortunately, that wasn't the only thing I was dishonest about. I came here to tell you first before everyone else. I'm not dying. There was no rare blood disease. I faked the whole thing.
David: Ah, to keep some people close, others to keep away, but, you know, the reasons, they don't really matter. What matters is that I lied to you, that I risked losing you, and nothing is worth that, but before you give me hell, there's more. Trevor is not my son.
Marissa: I know. While you were off not in Malaysia, Amanda had a DNA test done. They know that Jake is Trevor's father.
David: Wow. Then that's it, then. Can I just -- come here. Come here, please.
Marissa: How could you do this? I mean, how could you keep that kind of information from them? How could you make us all think that you were dying? Do you know how cruel you have been?
David: Yes. Yes. I do.
Marissa: I thought that I had it, your blood disease, and we thought that Little A could have it, and he could die.
David: Marissa, I'm so sorry. I never meant for you to --
Marissa: Well, what the hell did you mean, then?
David: Look. The whole thing, it just spiraled out of control. I became desperate. I was trying so hard to hold on to the son I thought all that time was mine, and when I found out he wasn't -- Marissa, what can I tell you? I'm a screwed-up man, all right? I mean, here I was, trying to hold on to a child that isn't mine at the risk of losing a daughter who is and who's been here all along. Yes. I came here to tell everyone, but more important, I came here to tell you first. You're all I have left, Marissa, so I'm asking you, please, can you find it in your heart to forgive me?
Marissa: I don't know if I can do that, I mean, certainly not right now. I am too damn angry, and you have got way too many other people to clear things up with first, but you are very right about one thing, David. You are one screwed-up man.
[Piano music playing]
Erica: Happy birthday.
Ryan: Wow. I cannot believe you did all this.
Erica: Well, actually, I had a little help from Opal. I think she went a little overboard, but you know what? The sentiment grew on me. It's your birthday, and you deserve all this.
Ryan: Thank you. Wow, look at that cake, huh? "To my darling -- " so, who's this Fred guy?
Erica: Well, that's you. You're my best fred.
Ryan: Ah. Ha ha!
Adam: I wasn't interrupting anything, was I?
Scott: No. I was just about to go home and take a shower myself.
Colby: What were you and Annie talking about before Dad walked in there?
Scott: Well, she's worried about him. She is worried that the doctors haven't told us everything. Stop trying to see something ugly in everything that she does.
Colby: Easier said than done.
Adam: What are you so worried about?
Annie: Is there anything you're not telling me about your health or about what the doctors said?
Adam: No. I wouldn't hide anything from you, Annie.
Annie: I just want to make sure that you stay healthy. Would you like me to sleep in the guest room tonight?
Adam: What? Why?
Annie: Well, just so you get some sleep, and you stay relaxed and you don't get excited or anything.
Adam: Who put that silly idea into your head? Scott?
Annie: Colby, but don't be upset with her. She's just concerned about you. We all are.
Adam: The answer is no. I want you by my side tonight and every night. Annie, I can't live without you.
Colby: Ah, my God, am I glad to see you. Come inside.
J.R.: Whoa, whoa, whoa. This is as far as I go.
J.R.: I didn't come here to see you. I didn't come here to see anyone. Just wanted to see this old place.
Colby: How come?
J.R.: Remember what it was like to have a father.
Colby: You have no idea what's going on in there. I need your help, just -- please. You've come this far. Just please just come inside.
Jake: He went out like a light.
Amanda: Probably because he knows that everything is exactly the way it's supposed to be.
Amanda: Kind of afraid to go to sleep myself, afraid I'll wake up and realize this whole thing was a big dream.
Jake: Well, then let's not go to sleep. Let's stay up all night and watch our son.
[Knock on door. When Amanda opens it, David is standing there]
Colby: Just walk through that door with me. Dad misses you. We all miss you, and I need you. I don't know what Annie is up to, and I don't know what Dad is thinking.
J.R.: I'm sorry, Colby. I can't. He's made his choice. Besides, I have my own family. I got my own son I have to concentrate on, but I'll always be there for you, no matter what. You call me if you need to talk to me, ok? My house is your house. All right. Get inside. Get warm.
Adam: Oh, I'm fine, Barry, just fine, ticking like a fine Swiss watch. Listen. I've been thinking. It's about time I updated my estate planning. When can you and I get together?
Dr. Clayton: This is good, better than I thought. We can start therapy in the morning.
Greenlee: No. No, no, no. I want to start now. The sooner I can walk back into Ryan's life, the better.
Ryan: It was great to see Emma smile. It's just that I felt a little out of place over there.
Erica: Well, I'm really glad that Emma got to see you on your birthday.
Ryan: Thank you. It's funny. Well, it's not really that funny, but birthdays never really meant that much to me, you know, growing up, but this one did, but it sort of snuck up on me. I got to be honest. I left Emma, and I felt a little bit lost, I guess, and so I went over to ConFusion. I had a couple of drinks. I wanted to come home. I wanted to go to bed and just wake up tomorrow, and it wouldn't be my birthday anymore, you know? I guess I was just trying to find a place that I felt comfortable, and -- what do you know? -- I found it.
David: Amanda, I just --
[Amanda slaps David]
Amanda: You bastard, and all the time, you knew. You knew that Trevor wasn't yours.
David: No. That's not true. I just found out. I just found out a few weeks ago. I came by to tell you and Jake that I'm sorry.
[Jake knocks David down with a punch to the jaw]
