Greenlee: I think I might've actually rattled the unsinkable Erica Kane. I think she's actually thinking about a compromise over Fusion now.
David: Well, I'm impressed if you can pull it off. But don't forget Erica's a formidable opponent. You know, don't underestimate her.
Greenlee: I know what she's capable of. I'm just worried that I might trip you up. I mean, she is still trying to blackmail you for convincing the world I was dead.
David: Yeah, don't worry about me. I consider Erica more of a nuisance than a real problem.
Greenlee: Now who's underestimating her?
David: I may be able to fix this whole thing with one short phone call.
Greenlee: A phone can be a deadly weapon in the right hands. Blast her out of the sky.
Jake: [Whispers] Hey. Ok. So your baby-relief-sitting person is here, whatever you want. Is that a real word: Baby-relief?
Ryan: It's ok. I know what you mean, and I appreciate it. Here's the thing, though. She's still willing to cooperate with us. She's still willing to take Hayward down. The problem is, is that we need the guy's name, the guy's name that Hayward bribed to switch the DNA.
Jake: You don't think that she knows his name? And do you honestly think this is the only way we're gonna be able to take him down?
Gayle: Leave me alone.
David: Gayle? Gayle, I can't tell you how sorry I am for hurting you the way I did. But if you would just give me a chance to explain -- when you disappeared, I couldn't help but realize just how much I missed you, how much more my feelings are for you than I ever could've imagined.
David: I know, I know, and, look, I don't blame you for feeling that way. I turned my back on you, and that's true, but I just got caught up in the whole drama of Greenlee's recovery. But, look, that's in the past, Gayle, ok? I realize now that it was a huge mistake, so please. I need you to hear me out.
Gayle: Why should I trust you after everything that's happened?
David: I would like to talk to you in person. Can I do that, please? I really want you to look into my eyes. I want you to see in my heart. And if you can't see right then and there what I feel for you, then I will walk out of your life for good, and that's a promise.
Tad: J.R.? I swear to you I did everything, everything I could to track down your half brother, get him back here. I guess it just wasn't good enough. I feel for the kid in some way. Take all of Adam's money and run like that -- it's a lot of bad karma for Miguel. But knowing that doesn't help us, does it? I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't babysit that kid all the way from California to this hospital. But I'm not gonna give up. I'm not giving up. I swear I will track him down. I will find Miguel, and I will drag him here by the scruff of the neck if I have to. All I need you to do is hang on. Just hang on long enough so I can fix it.
Angie: I just checked with the lab. J.R.'s condition's deteriorating, and you are still the only person who's even a partial match. Are you going to be J.R.'s donor?
David: I know Erica's been filling your head with all sorts of lies about me.
Gayle: I heard what you said to Erica about me with my own ears. Nobody had to lie about that.
David: Gayle, that was an act. I had to convince Erica to let me go. You saw me. I was in handcuffs, for heaven's sake. I had to think of something. But, Gayle, I'm telling you it kills me to think what it must've done to you to hear those lies.
Gayle: It did hurt -- a lot.
David: Of course, it did. And I'm telling you right now Erica's gonna pay for that cruel piece of theater. So where are you?
Gayle: This fairy-book castle hotel. There's a suite in the turret. I got to go.
Jake: Hey. How are you? You have a good sleep?
Gayle: Yeah, I had a good nap.
Ryan: Did you? You always nap with your cell phone in your hand?
Gayle: Um, no. No, it just, um --
Ryan: You were talking to David, weren't you?
Jake: Please don't say you were taking to David.
Gayle: I was waking up, the phone went off, and answering was just a reflex.
Ryan: It's ok. It's all right. You didn't do anything wrong. It's just that we know how good David is at making people believe what he wants them to believe, ok? He's fooled the best, Gayle.
Jake: But you know the truth, right? You know the real deal?
David: No time. That castle that Ryan took you to -- were there turrets?
David: And were is it?
Greenlee: Up north. Hey, I'm gonna change. I'll be back.
David: "Greater Pine Valley plus castle hotels."
Angie: If you want to think about it a little while longer in private, that's fine. Just not too long.
Brooke: I started working on something last night, but I wanted your approval before I go ahead and publish it online.
Adam: What is it?
Brooke: Well, it's a website. Basically, it's a world wide plea for a bone marrow donor for J.R.
Scott: What -- ohh. You built this whole website overnight?
Brooke: Well, I needed to feel like I was doing something.
Krystal: This is amazing.
Adam: Yes. I'm beyond grateful. What a stunning effort.
Krystal: Here, sit down.
Brooke: Oh, ok. I'll show you.
Annie: Hey, can we go somewhere to talk?
Angie: Let's go to my office.
Adam: This wouldn't have been necessary if that bastard son of mine hadn't taken the money and disappeared.
Brooke: Well, Miguel wasn't the only one who disappeared, Adam. Somebody else did, too, 19 years ago. I mean, could you honestly expect him to do something?
Adam: All right. I get your point. Why don't you let me read some of this and see what you wrote.
Scott: Hey. Hey, buddy.
Marissa: Any change?
Scott: No. Not that I know of. Colby's in there with him now.
Colby: J.R.? J.R., can you hear me? Someone told me that you can. I think you can hear the love in my voice, at least. It seems to me you could feel that even if you were asleep. Even if you can't hear words, only feelings: Like the hollow sound in my voice of me being scared of you going away.
Liza: Hey. So the expedited request for the adoption -- it came through. Congratulations. You are officially A.J.'s mom.
Marissa: Wow, thank you.
Liza: Yes. Do you know where Tad is?
Krystal: Yeah. You might try the chapel.
Liza: Thank you.
Scott: Come here.
Annie: Ok, so before we go any further, I just want to make sure everything we discuss in here is confidential, all right?
Angie: Of course. It's considered a patient-doctor consult. It's privileged communication.
Annie: Ok, here's the story. J.R. hates my guts. He told me he would rather die than accept a bone marrow donation from me. However, that was before I got tested, and now he's unconscious.
Angie: We could do the donation anonymously.
Annie: That's not the point. The point is, why should I do it at all? He hates me. I don't like him. I hate needles, I can't stand pain, and I'm afraid of complications. So why would I subject myself to that?
Angie: We can anaesthetize you for most of the pain, and the possibility of infection is really very slim. But you want to know why do it at all? So far, you're the only match.
Annie: Partial match. You said I'm a partial match, so I could go through all this for nothing.
Angie: Look, Annie, I can't make up your mind for you. All I can say is if this is not done soon, J.R. will die. Could you live with that?
Liza: How you doing?
Tad: I was just in with him, and he's -- you know, he's still unresponsive. So -- you know what I keep thinking?
Tad: That it's happening again: I'm losing someone, someone I love more than anything, just like I lost Dixie. I have to sit by on my hands and do nothing while they fade away in a hospital bed. A man is not supposed to bury his children.
Tad: I won't be. Maybe a little hope left.
Brooke: You've done some good things in your life, too.
Brooke: You have. Just look at your family, look at your children, your grandchildren. You should take credit where you get it.
Adam: Listen to this part. I love this --
Tad: My contact in California was able to get another contact number for Sonia Reyes.
Brooke: Miguel's mother?
Tad: Yeah. She's gone on some kind of retreat. I don't know what, but this is a new number for her. And I think under the circumstances, you should be the one to make the call.
Adam: Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
Annie: Ahem. That's very impressive, what you've done here.
Brooke: Thank you.
Annie: I look forward to working with you at "Tempo." I would love to learn how to write an article as powerful as this one.
Brooke: Oh, I didn't realize that you'd read it yet. Anyway, I think that we need to get past J.R.'s crisis first before we think about anything like work.
Adam: Sonia doesn't know where her boy went, didn't know he was a match in the first place. If a mother doesn't know where he is, then --
Brooke: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Liza: All right, look, you still have your people searching for this Miguel Reyes, right?
Tad: I'm not giving up. By the way, did you know I found Damon sleeping on a gurney in the hall this morning?
Liza: He's in the hospital? Why?
Tad: He had no place else to go. He lost his job, then he lost his room at the Pine Cone.
Liza: Oh, unbelievable. Well, I guess burglary arrests do have that effect.
Tad: Well, I gave the kid my place. I told him he could exchange room and board for some work around the house.
Liza: Oh, you are such a good man.
Tad: Oh, jinkies.
Liza: Why didn't he talk to his parents, though?
Tad: Oh, I can answer that. He hates his father, doesn't get along with him at all. And his mother -- he doesn't want to dump all that drama in her lap. And get this: Her name is Hill, short for Hillary.
Liza: Oh. Now I know why you're helping him.
Liza: Hillary -- reminds you of the ghost of lovers past.
Tad: I never thought of that.
Tad: Come to think of it, he reminds me an awful lot of me when I was that age. Man, I left some wreckage in my wake. I screwed up a lot.
Liza: Well, as I recall, Hillary was collateral damage.
Tad: Yeah, she certainly was. Whew, did I break her heart.
Liza: Mine, too.
Opal: Now, I don't much spark to the idea of turning this place into the home base for your one-man crime spree.
Damon: Look, no more break-ins for me, ok? The reason I needed money isn't even here anymore. Bailey took our son Stuart and went back to Ohio.
Kathy: My clock is broke. Can you fix it?
Opal: Oh, honeybunch. Gosh. You know, fixing clocks isn't really in my bag of tricks.
Damon: You know, I might be able to do something with that. Could I take a look?
A.J.: "The entire world would know of my big plans, so big that I'll need my dad's shiniest tie and fanciest shoes. Then I'll climb up the highest hill in town and shout I got big plans, I say! Big plans!"
David: What are you doing here?
Ryan: I'd like to ask you the same question. Now, I rented the entire place out. That's why I'm here, so what's your excuse?
David: Greenlee told me you brought her here. So what was that about, huh? One final desperate attempt at reconnecting with her? If you ask me, I think it was a bad judgment call. I mean, come on -- locking a woman up who you supposedly love? It's just my opinion.
Ryan: Right. Because you've been such a good example on how to treat a woman, right? For instance, you would rather play perverse mind games with Greenlee.
David: Hmm. You call it "perverse mind games," I call it "saving her life."
Ryan: And then trying to collect her soul as payment. That's the part I'm talking about here. I got a little news flash for you. Greenlee may have been wounded when you found her, and it seems like she's very grateful to you, which I think is very sweet and everything. But she's strong and she knows her mind, and when she realizes how sick you really are -- and she will realize that -- you're gonna be like a speck in her rearview mirror.
David: You know, actually, her strength is one of the qualities I most admire about her. It's what draws us to each other.
Ryan: And it's also what's gonna send you packing if you're in any condition to pack at that point. So why don't you tell me what you're really doing here?
Jake: Yeah. Gayle's kind of gonna help us out.
Amanda: Help who out?
Jake: Well, she's gonna help me and Ryan and Erica and me -- well, the world, really, at large, altogether.
Amanda: Why didn't you tell me we were going to have company?
Jake: Well, I did tell you. Remember I mentioned I had spent the evening with a woman, and I told you that? Remember?
Amanda: You were serious about that?
Jake: Well, I don't lie to you. Hold it, I haven't told you the best part.
Adam: This adoption of A.J. was too fast.
Annie: It is what J.R. wanted.
Brooke: I think for Adam it makes it all real. J.R. might not be around to raise A.J. but you know whatever happens to J.R., Everybody will be around to raise A.J.
Annie: Excuse me for a minute. Hey, can you hear me? Wake up. I need you to talk to me. Call me a bitch again. Toss me out of here. Make this real easy for me. You know, the thought of letting somebody take a big, fat, jagged needle and stick in my hip, the thought of taking any kind of medical risk for you, ugh, makes me sick to my stomach! You don't even want my bone marrow, and I sure as hell don't want to give it to you. Ohh! But it's getting ugly out there. The ex-wife has her claws into Adam, and the whole clan is being ever so supportive of your pathetic decline. The truth is I really don't like you, like, at all. I really don't like you. Ohh. Angie just asked me if I could live with myself if I let you die. And you know what?
David: So this is your idea of a romantic getaway, huh? It's kind of cheesy, don't you think? I'd say that Greenlee deserves something a little classier than this.
Ryan: I know her so well, Hayward. You have no idea. You also have no idea what she and I have.
David: Oh, come on, Lavery. This is not like you: Sitting back passively, waiting for the woman to make up her mind.
Ryan: She's smart, she makes up her own mind, and she follows through. In fact, she's probably stronger than either one of us.
David: Now, on that we can certainly agree. And we can also agree that she's married to me now. She's my wife.
Ryan: Yes, a legal formality. She doesn't love you, she never has, and she never will.
David: Maybe. But I am the one she trusts. And as we both know from personal experience, trust outlasts love.
Ryan: She's gonna see through your crap, Hayward. I have complete faith in that. I also have all the time in the world. Now, I have rented this room out for the rest of the week. Enjoy. Minibar's in the fridge. You knock yourself out.
Jake: All you have to do is keep an eye on her, ok? Just keep an eye on her.
Amanda: No. No. No way.
Jake: Just think about what he put us through. Think about what he put everybody in this town through. I'm not asking you to do this for me. Do it for her. She's a person. She's a person. She's a human being. Help stop all the future victims that he's gonna have. Please? Please. Thank you. Thank you. I'm gonna go catch up with Ryan, ok, and I'll be back.
Damon: There you go.
Kathy: Thanks, Damon. Now I can time myself.
Opal: See you later, honey. Well, looks like you got a way with clocks and with kids, huh?
Damon: I wasn't always good with kids. They used to, like, really annoy me, until Stuart came along.
Opal: Yeah, surprise, surprise.
Damon: I know. It's weird, right? The first thing that happened when Bailey told me she was knocked up, I checked out. But then I got to hanging with the little dude, and he kind of grew on me, and then after a while I kind of fell in love with him.
Opal: Hmm. Well, that sounds like kind of a good sign.
Damon: I just -- I really hate being away from him like this. But one thing I've learned from all the stupid stuff that I've done is that I have to be in a solid position before I can be a decent dad.
Opal: Looks like you're getting there.
Damon: What's jacked about it is by the time I get to see Stuart again, he could be bigger than her.
Tad: Liza, last thing I meant to do was to hurt you. I was just being --
Liza: Tad the cad. I know. I know. Believe me, I was not exactly picture-perfect myself.
Tad: You think?
Liza: God, all the things I did. Oh, God, what I did to your sister? And then, what, accusing Jesse of rape?
Tad: Another worldbeater.
Liza: Yeah. Well, let's just chalk that up to being young and stupid, if that's an excuse.
Tad: Well, whoever came up with that phrase "youth is wasted on the young" didn't know the half of it. If I had known what I know now --
Liza: What, you think you would've enjoyed it more?
Tad: I certainly would've appreciated it more.
Liza: Oh, you appreciated it plenty. Wow, I don't think either one of us expected our lives to be like this, huh? Careers? Kids?
Liza: Speak for yourself. Life was so much easier when we had no responsibilities: Not sitting around in a hospital waiting for a child.
Tad: Excuse me for a second. How's it going?
Krystal: I'm afraid I'm just not giving Marissa enough support, you know? But I just don't think I can keep from falling apart myself, Tad. I lost a daughter, and now my other daughter is losing her husband? J.R.: He has had so much loss in his life, and now this? It's too much. It hurts too much, Tad, and I just do not think I can keep it together much longer!
Tad: You don't have to.
Tad: Come on, let's go find someplace quiet, all right?
Krystal: Oh, God.
Scott: Hey. That was really nice of you, visiting J.R. I'm sure after butting heads for so long he really appreciates you putting it all in the past.
Annie: Yeah, that's me: Florence "freaking" Nightingale.
Adam: I have to see my son.
Brooke: Do you want me to come with you?
Greenlee: Thank you.
[Music plays at ConFusion]
Singer: Oh, oh, oh should've known should've known better than to stay so many times I could've walked away
Greenlee: Ahem. Of all the gin joints, huh?
Ryan: I guess congratulations are in order to the blushing bride.
Greenlee: Thank you.
Ryan: Mind if I join you?
Greenlee: I guess that seat's reserved for you.
Ryan: Always was. It's a joke. It's a joke. What are you doing? Diving into Fusion?
Greenlee: Made all the more difficult by the involvement of the infamous Erica Kane.
Ryan: Yes. Well, I know how much you love a challenge, right?
Singer: Should've known better than to stay
Ryan: Jake told me that you came to our castle on your wedding night with David.
Greenlee: Then I guess Jake also told you why I was there: To say good-bye to us for good. That's all it was.
Ryan: Nothing more?
Greenlee: Nothing more.
Ryan: Sometimes you can keep saying good-bye, but it never goes away.
Singer: Should've known should've known
Scott: Hey, big guy, let's go sit over here. Here we go. Come on. I want you to read me that book.
Opal: Hey, look who's here! How are you, honeybunch?
Colby: Hey. Thanks for what you said the other day.
Damon: What'd I say?
Colby: That people in comas can hear what's going on around them. They can hear people talking to them. I thought about it when I was with J.R., and it made me feel a lot better.
Damon: Yeah, glad I could help.
Colby: So Tad said you slept here last night on a gurney?
Damon: Yeah. I had a little housing issue, but -- no, Tad's been really great. I'm doing some odd jobs for him. He's giving me room and board, so, yeah, it's cool.
Colby: Yeah, it's cool.
Damon: Look, I'm really sorry about J.R. I got tested to be a donor, but I wasn't a match.
Adam: I'm sorry, J.R. I let you down, and not because I couldn't find you a donor but because I let you believe that you were a disappointment to me. Your whole life, though, I never felt that way. I was disappointed with myself, so I laid it on you. Your whole family's out there. They're fighting for you. That's how much you mean to them. Well, you mean the most to me, and I would do anything if I could just have a chance to prove that to you. Please. I'll do anything.
Scott: This isn't about her scoring more points with Adam. There's someone dying in there.
Gayle: I feel like such an idiot for getting involved with that man.
Amanda: Welcome to the club. We could make up a secret handshake, but half the women in Pine Valley would have to learn it.
Gayle: Makes me feel like an even bigger idiot.
Amanda: Don't. The thing you need to learn about David is he's an empty shell. It's like somebody scooped out his soul. He's just empty, an echo chamber, and so he takes whatever he can from whoever he can. And he's trying to fill up the inside, but the problem is he's unfillable. He is a bottomless pit, because David never has enough, and he never gives up.
Greenlee: So how's your influence with Erica these days?
Ryan: Uh, I think Erica and I will always be really good friends.
Greenlee: Good enough to get her to drop out of Fusion?
Ryan: Ok, that's not gonna happen.
Greenlee: Worth a shot. How about persuading her to agree to a truce?
Ryan: A truce like you two working together?
Greenlee: Stranger things have happened.
Ryan: True. True. Like two people starting off feeling one way about each other and then getting closer than they ever thought possible.
Singer: But I should let go should've known better
David: Fancy meeting you here.
Ryan: Yeah. Coincidence.
David: Of course, it is.
Greenlee: Take care of yourself, Ryan.
Ryan: You, too, Greenlee.
Singer: Should've known better than to stay so many times I could've walked away, walked away
Greenlee: Hey, I left a notepad out on the patio before it got chilly. I'll be right back.
Singer: But I couldn't let go should've known should've known better than to stay so many times I could've walked away should've known better should've known better than to stay some would say you'd walk away but I couldn't let go should've known better
Ryan: Hey. You just missed the show.
Jake: No, no, no, I saw everything. I was just hanging back for a couple of minutes, because I didn't think it was a good idea that he sees us together.
Ryan: Nice. Nice. I've been working on a way to get David to spill the name of that coroner he bribed, but it might get dangerous.
Jake: Define "dangerous."
Ryan: Life or death.
Annie: Adam, this must be so hard for you.
Annie: Oh. Hello? Yes, this is she. What? Are you sure? Great. Thank you so much. Adam, I need to talk to you alone, right now. I have good news. I just found out I'm a partial match for J.R. Just a partial match, but it's a chance.
Annie: It's a ray of hope for all of us!
[At J.R.'s bedside, a bright light appears as Dixie holds her son's hand]
