Jake: Hey.

Jesse: Jake. What happened to you?

Jake: I don't want to talk about it. I tripped on a toy train set at my house and -- whatever. What's your excuse? I got your message. It sounded important.

Jesse: I'm glad you were able to come in. I need your opinion on a case I'm working on.

Jake: Oh, sure. I'm always up for helping you with my medical expertise.

Jesse: Well, it's not really your M.D. I need, it's your Ph.D in all things Hayward.

Jake: Ooh, the Hayward war. The saga continues. Well, I'll tell you what -- I'll be rooting for you from the sidelines, ok, because I just can't do that.

David: Annie is no angel, Adam. Your wife is the same opportunistic liar she's always been. And sooner or later, she's gonna do something that's gonna send your heart into overdrive, and when she does, you're gonna want me to be there to save you. Now, obviously, I can provide stellar medical care, but I can be useful in other ways, as well. You're gonna need someone's eyes and ears around this house for you. I can do that. I can watch, I can listen, I can report anything that I hear. But most important, protect you from the enemy.

Adam: Thanks, Hayward. But no thanks. I don't need you spying on my wife.

David: Think about it. [Chuckles] I work for you, Adam, so utilize my services as you see fit. But the two of us together? Consider the possibilities. Now, your wife, she's a very attractive woman. Young, sexy. But she also seems to require a lot of hands-on care. Now, given your condition, do you really think that's something you shouldn't be worrying about?

Adam: I trust my wife.

David: Ok. Fine. Then you might want to pick out your cemetery plot.

Annie: I saved your life.

[J.R. scoffs]

Annie: Stop it. Stop laughing.

J.R.: No, I can't. It's too good.

Annie: Listen, you ungrateful little brat, I was your bone marrow donor. If it weren't for me, you'd be dead.

J.R.: Get out.

Annie: What?

J.R.: I told you to tell the truth. I don't want to be fed this line of crap anymore.

Annie: I am not making this up. You are just in denial because you hate me so much.

J.R.: And you're transparent. You used to be more confident than that. What happened? You're shaking at the seams.

Annie: No, no, I'm just trying not to attack the person that I saved.

J.R.: Would you get out of my room? I don't have the energy for your games.

Annie: What? Wow, you are really lucky that I am such a better person than you are.

J.R.: And the lies, they just keep coming.

Annie: What do you want? What do you want? Proof?

J.R.: I want you to leave!

Annie: How's this? Is this enough damn proof for you?

[Annie shows J.R. her hip]

Angie: Stop, Mr. Miller. A bottle of diazepam is missing. Do you know anything about it?

Damon: No. But you obviously think I do.

Angie: Every time I run into you, you're up to something.

Damon: Is this my new job here? Be the regular fall guy for everything that goes wrong at this damn hospital?

Angie: Are you going to answer the question or not?

Damon: Let's just skip the Guantanamo part and go straight to the verdict, huh? Let's see -- we got petty theft so far. Now there's drug abuse. What else you want to throw me? Medical malpractice? Maybe -- any dead patients lying around? That was probably me. Maybe a baby switch.

Angie: Shut up.

Liza: You're breaking up with me?

Tad: I meant what I said. Damon is going through a hell of a time right now. He's got community service. He's got parents that take off to Europe without so much as a word. And on top of that, I have to be a father to a kid I've never met and not let him know --

Liza: I've asked you a simple question, Tad. Are you dumping me or not?

Tad: All right. That's it. I told you I needed some time.

Liza: Ok, you know what? You don't have to sugarcoat this. We're both adults here.

Tad: I'm not sugarcoating anything. I'm not making anything up, and I'm not blowing smoke, all right? I've got a brand-new son. I got another son that just survived cancer. You're gonna have to forgive me if I don't have time to walk around holding your hand.

Liza: No, actually, you haven't had time to do much with me at all lately, have you?

Tad: Ok. You want me to be honest? I'll be honest. You have been frustrating the hell out of me lately.

Liza: Hmm.

Tad: Why on earth do you have to be so damn jealous about Krystal, and why would you go to Ohio to confront Hillary without talking to me about it first?

Liza: Oh, go on. You're on a roll here. Come on.

Tad: I'm not the one looking for trouble here, Liza.

Liza: Oh, no, but you're calling me the trouble. Is that right? Hmm?

Tad: Well, maybe you had it right. Maybe we should think about breaking up.

Liza: See? That wasn't so hard, now was it? That was very adult of you. It was a very grown-up way of breaking this off. I mean, it was definitely leagues better than sleeping with my mother, now, wasn't it?

Angie: Listen. I know that you think I'm out to get you, Damon, but part of my job is watching out for the people who work here. Now, I know that you've been having a rough time.

Damon: Oh, come on. A second ago, you were gonna slap the cuffs on me. Now you wanna play therapist? Look, I get you're the big boss lady around here, but my problems are none of your business.

Angie: But Tad is my business. He's a friend of mine, and he's put his neck on the line for you. Now, the reason you're not behind bars right now is because actually you are very lucky. You got a second chance. Do you want to blow it? Because if you do, you'll be lashing out at Tad, the hospital -- you know what? Most of all, you'll be lashing out at yourself.

Jake: Yes, I hate Hayward, ok? He ate up a whole year of my life, and then when I almost lost my family, I was this close because I got all wrapped up in the Hayward vendetta. Well, I can't do it. No, I can't do it. I can't risk it. I can't go there again.

Jesse: I understand where you're coming from. I really do. But come on, I'm under the gun here. The press is all over this. Mayor's on my back. Not to mention, the truckload of cases I've shoved aside to focus on this Hayward madness.

Jake: Well, I am the specialist. All right, this is what you do. You gotta stay one step ahead of him in his own game.

Jesse: Yeah, but right now, he's one step ahead of me. All of us.

Jake: No, no, no. He's not as complex as he purports. You find out what he wants, what he's going after, and that's the way you find his kryptonite.

Jesse: I'm beginning to wonder if there even is such a thing for this guy. I mean, he has gotten away with so much.

Jake: It's his daughter. Marissa. He cares about Marissa. One time, I had to get him out of Wildwind, so I lied to him. I said that Marissa was at the hospital. I got him out of Wildwind. I got him exactly where I wanted him.

Jesse: Huh. You mind repeating that again?

Jake: Which -- which part?

Jesse: The part where you got him where you wanted him.

Jake: I lured Hayward out of his own house by fibbing to him about his daughter.

Jesse: Thanks, Jake.

Jake: That's it?

Jesse: Yeah. You just gave me something I believe I can work with.

David: I'm not through with my examination yet.

Adam: Ah. Well, you're deluded if you think I find value in your marital advice, not to mention, your view of Annie, my wife.

David: An unstable wife is not exactly the best medicine for a man with a heart condition.

Adam: Really? Really? Really? This arrangement we have isn't gonna last very long. Soon as J.R. comes home, you're gonna have to find somebody else to blackmail for asylum.

David: You think you know your wife, Adam. You don't.

Adam: Oh, really? Just how well do you know your wife? Greenlee? Do you know where she is right now? Out gallivanting with Lavery, perhaps?

David: Ok, that's enough. I don't want to hear another word about Greenlee.

Adam: You gave me your take on my wife. Come on. Let me return the favor. Greenlee -- she seems to be quite devoted to you, except she never seems to be around when you're around. So, what do you think? Maybe she's enjoying her freedom, without you?

[Door closes]

J.R.: Now, who did you pay to scratch that into your hip? What am I saying? You probably did it yourself.

Annie: I didn't fake this.

J.R.: You fake everything else. Being in love with my dad. Acting like you and Scott are just friends. Pretending that you give a rat's ass about anyone but yourself. No, jabbing something into your hip falls right in line with crazy Annie's bag of tricks.

Annie: Wow. You may not think that my bone marrow is good enough for you, J.R., but there was no one else who could save you. So, I stepped up to the plate. And even now, you're not capable of just saying, "Thank you, Annie. Thank you for saving my worthless life."

J.R.: Hell would have to freeze over first.

Annie: Yeah, well, that's where you'd be rotting if it weren't for me.

J.R.: I wish my dad could hear you now.

Annie: You think you're so much better than me. You all do. Even though all I've ever tried to do is be a part of this family.

J.R.: You know, I don't care what that marriage certificate says. You are not a Chandler, and you never will be.

Annie: Deep down, you know I'm telling the truth, and you can't stand it. Because you owe me now, J.R., and you are gonna owe me for the rest of your miserable life.

J.R.: All right, you know what? That's it.

Scott: Whoa, whoa, whoa, J.R., J.R., J.R. Don't, don't, don't. You ok?

J.R.: Get the hell out of here.

Annie: See? Look at that. My bone marrow gave you your fight back, J.R.

J.R.: Just get her out of here, Scott.

Scott: Annie, he's right. You should go. Oh, no. Ok. Just -- nurse.

Brooke: Ahem.

Adam: What happened to my liquor?

Brooke: I flushed it down the drain. You shouldn't be drinking.

Adam: Really? Last time I checked, you were a journalist, not a doctor.

Brooke: Well, this is one journalist in this household who knows how serious your heart condition is, and drinking is not gonna make you feel better.

Adam: Oh, come on. I'm a grown man. I don't need you hovering around me.

Brooke: Well, then, act like it. Do you want your son and your grandson finally to move home, and you're gone? Really, you're not doing anybody any favors by making your condition worse.

Adam: All right, all right. I'm sorry. You know how I hate someone telling me what to do.

Brooke: Well, somebody has to look after you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. [Clears his throat]

Brooke: Are you ok?

Adam: I'm fine.

Brooke: Well, I know J.R.'s feeling better, so I don't think you'd be worrying about that.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Is it Annie? Did you have a fight with her?

Adam: Oh, no, she's -- [Clears his throat] But it's -- [Sniffles] Pretty hard-headed and not always easy to live with.

Colby: Dad? It's Scott. He's calling from the hospital.

Adam: Oh. Is J.R. ok?

Scott: He's pretty worked up right now. I think you better get over here.

Adam: Why? What happened?

Scott: I'll explain when you get here.

Adam: I'm on my way to the hospital.

Colby: Well, what happened?

Brooke: Is it an emergency?

Adam: Scott wouldn't tell me.

Brooke: Well, I could head over there, and if it's urgent, I can call you.

Adam: No. Nonsense.

Brooke: You know, it's not good to get yourself all worked up.

Adam: I'm going to see my son.

Colby: Yeah, and I am going with you.

Damon: Do they teach you that speech to give to all the problem patients around here?

Angie: Does that make it easier? Being sarcastic all the time, pretending you don't care?

Damon: You're the one who's all talk. If you're gonna accuse me, just do it. Don't go all new agey on me with these campy lectures.

Angie: Fine. Did you steal the pills?

Damon: Why even bother defending myself? You are dying to stamp "guilty" on my forehead. Well, let's do it right then, huh? Let's start with the standard search and seizure. Check his pockets. Oh, not in there. Oh, that's just a phone. Let's see what -- listens to music. That is very suspicious. Shoes. It's probably in his shoes. Let's check the shoes.

Angie: All right. Cut it out. You look me in the eye and say that you did not steal the pills, and I'll believe you.

Damon: I did not steal the pills.

Angie: All right. I believe you.

[Pager beeps]

Angie: I have to go. Are we ok here?

[When Angie leaves, Damon pops some pills into his mouth and struts away]

Tad: Why would you do that?

Liza: What?

Tad: Bring up ancient history.

Liza: Well, it might not feel like ancient history if it happened to you.

Tad: Huh. You know, I don't care. Whatever happened between you and me back in the day has nothing to do with what's --

Liza: I was feeling a little bit of déja vu here, so --

Tad: After everything we've been through, everything that's happening between you and me, you would choose to bring that up, throw it in my face now?

Liza:  -- Whatever you want to call it, we've seen this a little differently, haven't we?

Tad: You know what, Liza? Let's do each other a favor. No, let's do each other a solid here, ok? Let's just --

Liza: Favors? Oh, right. You want to talk about favors here. So I'm always there when you need me? You get thrown into jail, who bails you out? You need a lawyer. Who's always on call? Hmm? And you know what I never did, Tad? I never got in the way of you needing to lean on Krystal. Again and again and again, right in front of my face, for months. And then I make one little comment and all of a sudden I'm a jealous nuisance.

Tad: Don't make this about Krystal.

Liza: Ok, don't make it about me. Because you're the one who couldn't stay away from your ex.

Tad: I don't want to stay away from my ex. I shouldn't have to. We share a child. She lives in my house.

Liza: Oh, believe me, I know that. Did I ever complain? Ever? Every time she'd walk in on us kissing, or every time you'd have to leave our date because Krystal called.

Tad: No, but you obviously resent the hell out of it now.

Liza: Well, I was definitely hurt by it, but I never stood in the way.

Tad: Yeah, well, you know what? I'm not gonna stand here and apologize for my relationship with Krystal.

Liza: Well, of course not, because she's an amazing woman that you can confide in about Damon, right?

Tad: Yeah.

Liza: Yeah. Couldn't tell me, though, could you?

Tad: Ok. Ok, fair enough. Maybe I should've told you. Maybe you should've been the first person I told that I was Damon's father. But you know what? Krystal didn't know me back then. Didn't know me the way you do. If she knew what I was capable of, she would never do what you just did, because she would be tortured by the same memories that you are. Like you just said, we obviously want different things.

Liza: And what did you want from me?

Tad: What kind of question is that?

Liza: What did you want from me?

Tad: Liza, you're beautiful. You're fun. You know, you're smart. When I was with you, I -- I could cut loose.

Liza: Ok, good. Good. Good to know what my strengths are. So, laughs and sex.

Tad: I didn't say that.

Liza: Yeah, you kind of did.

[Door closes]

Jake: Hey.

Tad: Liza, I'm sorry.

Liza: Yeah, for what? Breaking up with me? Again? Wow, I feel stupid. Huh. I really did think this could probably work. I should've known better. Actually, I did know better.

Jake: You're just gonna let her go like that?

[Door closes]

Tad: Yeah, that's exactly what I'm gonna do.

Annie: Where's my husband?

Brooke: You just missed him. He went to the hospital.

Annie: He what? Oh, that's great. That is just great. That is just what I need -- J.R. telling Adam his twisted version.

Brooke: What happened?

Annie: Adam slipped. He told J.R. that I "did something amazing" for him.

Brooke: So J.R. wanted to know what it was?

Annie: Well, I tried to keep it a secret, but J.R. just kept pushing me.

Brooke: So, you told J.R. that you were his donor.

Annie: What was I supposed to do? I was supposed to lie? I wasn't just gonna stand there and let J.R. tear me apart and rip me to pieces. Of course, he didn't believe me anyway. I can't believe it. I can't believe that I save J.R.'s life, and I am still the bad guy. I am so sick of it. No matter what I do for this family, it is never enough. And it is all your fault.

Scott: You have got to calm down. There is no sense in getting yourself worked up.

Adam: What happened?

Scott: Uh, well, when I came in, I found J.R going at it with Annie.

J.R.: Yeah, because she's lying. She's claiming that she was the bone marrow donor that saved my life.

Colby: As if. When did she have time to do the procedure? In between her herbal wrap and her pedicure?

J.R.: It's easy to prove that she's making it up. It comes as a surprise to me. She's normally a better liar than this.

Adam: J.R., J.R. --

J.R.: No, Dad, you need to open your eyes. You need to toss her to the curb.

Colby: Yeah, what kind of person lies about being a bone marrow donor?

Adam: She's not lying. Annie did save your life. You should be thanking Annie. She got tested, even though she knew you were against it.

J.R.: What were you thinking? How could you let this happen?

Adam: J.R., I did it to save your life.

J.R.: Yeah, but don't you see what you've done? Now you're in Annie's debt forever. How could you do this to our family?

Annie: None of this would've happened if you had just stayed away from Pine Valley. Why don't you crawl back into whatever random corner of the earth you were hiding in?

Brooke: Do you really believe that I am the cause of all your problems with this family?

Annie: Maybe they all hadn't warmed up to me, but I was making progress. And then you come along and remind Adam and everybody else of the good old days.

Brooke: Well, I'm not going to apologize for my history with Adam or with the rest of this family.

Annie: But that's where it should stay. It is history. I am Adam's present. I am his future, and you are confusing him, pulling him into the past. I swear, if he turns on me --

Brooke: Then you will have only yourself to blame. Why do you think that you're always at odds with everyone in this family, Annie? Maybe it's because you don't really care about them.

Annie: Yes, I do care about them. Why don't I get any credit? My God, I saved J.R.'s life.

Brooke: Listen to yourself. Did you save his life because you care about him or you're trying to score credit?

Annie: I'm just saying I think my generosity should be appreciated.

Brooke: So you couldn't keep your mouth shut about being J.R.'s donor, because you wanted to make everyone believe you care.

Annie: What is so wrong about that? What is so bad? People should know what I did. Everyone always calls me selfish. Maybe I wanted to prove them wrong.

Brooke: Saving somebody's life is not about getting credit or scoring points in your favor. And you knew that J.R. would not take the message that you were his donor very well. And if you really cared about him, you wouldn't be begging for a thank-you.

Annie: No matter what you or anybody else thinks, I care about this family.

Brooke: No. The most important thing to you is being the most important part of Adam's universe. He loves you, Annie, but honestly, do you really love him?

David: [Foreign accent] Yes, hello. Is this Fusion? Is Miss Greenlee Hayward there? You have no idea where she is? No. No messages. Thank you very much.

Jesse: All right. Get back to me as soon as it goes through. All right.

Angie: Hey, you.

Jesse: Hey, beautiful. Look at you. Whoa. How's J.R.? Is he ok?

Angie: He's out of isolation.

Jesse: Tad must be really relieved, huh?

Angie: Yeah. Listen, do you think that Tad will tell Damon he's his father?

Jesse: I don't know. Why?

Angie: Damon needs to know the truth. I just have a feeling he's gonna need the support, baby. Because I just don't see good things ahead for that kid. I mean, it's like he's got all of this stuff going on inside, and he's about to explode or something.

Jake: So, that's it. That's it, huh? You and Liza.

Tad: I don't know. I just told her I wanted to cool things down a bit. You saw what happened.

Jesse: And she's very sensitive. She cares a lot about it.

Tad: Let me tell you something about little miss sensitive. She just nailed me all over again for sleeping with her mother.

Jake: Oh! God. Now, that's not -- that's a blast from the past.

Tad: Yeah, "past" being the operative word. As in, I thought we were well past it.

Jake: Yeah.

Tad: Felt like I'd been hit by a truck. You know, she was like the Liza of old. It was like all those years had never happened, you know. She was looking around for the sharpest knife to throw at me.

Jake: Shame, because you guys had a nice -- a nice, little thing going there.

Tad: Yeah, well, we want different things, you know. So, end of story. I'm not gonna sit here and apologize for being honest about my feelings.

Jake: You're furrowing your brow.

Tad: No, I'm not.

Jake: You are.

Tad: No, I'm not. So what? You banged up your face. We're even.

Jake: Yeah, but you do that when you're, you know, hiding something. That. See that? Right there.

Tad: Shut up. Yeah, all right, fine. You win. It's complicated. Really complicated. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I'm working on it, ok? Something I should've told you about a while ago.

Liza: Hey. Hello? Can I please get a drink?

Bartender: What do you want?

Liza: Please give me a red wine. No, actually, I want a vodka tonic. Wait. Give me a beer and a shot.

Bartender: Any shot in particular?

Liza: Surprise me. Just make it strong. You gonna pour or you gonna -- you gonna just stare at me?

Damon: What's a guy gotta do to get a drink around here?

Tad: So, I got the DNA test done, and it proves that I'm Damon's father.

Jake: Congratulations. You gave birth to a teenager. [Laughs] Wow. Hillary Wilson, huh? I'd like to know her side of the story.

Tad: Oh --

Jake: Does she know that you're her baby daddy?

Tad: She's got to. Why on earth would she stay away from Pine Valley, from her son's trial? Now she's out of the entire country.

Jake: So, what are you gonna do?

Tad: Well, as much as I hate to admit it, it's not really my call, is it? I just met this kid a few months back. You know, for 18 years, he's grown up thinking somebody else is his father. Hillary is his mother. It's her responsibility to give him the truth.

Jake: Yeah. So you gonna -- what -- sit back -- I guess you just wait?

Tad: Don't do that. Don't -- no. That. Don't. Don't do that to me, ok? That's not fair. It's not like I don't want to do more for the kid, you know?

Jake: You're doing plenty for the kid. Is he living here?

Tad: Yeah.

Jake: Are you giving him money or --

Tad: Yeah, he's got a job. So what? I'm still frustrated. I want to do more for him.

Jake: I think that's it right there. You just said it. I think you're taking your frustration, and you're putting that onto Liza.

Tad: I'm taking my frus -- she got mad at me. I didn't get angry at her.

Jake: No, really? When did you actually tell her about your predicament? Hmm?

Tad: Right before we broke up. All right, fine. Ok, you win. You win. Be that way. Ok, maybe I should've told her sooner.

Jake: Maybe. Listen, I get it. All joking aside, this Damon -- that's a roller coaster. I get it. But you're projecting all of your -- onto Liza.

Tad: I'm not projecting anything. I told you. She went off on me. I didn't go off on her.

Jake: You weren't exactly Buddha when I walked in here, were you? Listen, you guys had a nice thing going, and you go way back. Just don't let it end like this, you know? That's all I'm saying. Don't. Don't let it -- don't. Don't.

Tad: Yeah, right. Fine. Should probably go find her.

Jake: Go find her.

Tad: Where is she?

Jake: Where does everybody go when they break up with somebody, huh?

Both: To the bar.

Tad: Get your feet off the couch.

Liza: Ok, you know, there are other seats here.

Damon: Wow. Does everybody have it in for me today?

Liza: Excuse me?

Damon: Look, I don't see anyone's name on this stool, so I think I'm free to sit here.

Liza: Ok, well, then, I'm free to go.

Damon: What's wrong with you? We were supposed to meet up for lunch, you cancel on me, and now you act like I have the plague.

Liza: Well, maybe I just don't feel like being around any people today.

Damon: What's got you so pissed off?

Liza: What says I'm pissed off?

Damon: Beer and a shot. That's not a very relaxing combo.

Liza: What do you know about combos?

Damon: If you were relaxed, you'd be drinking something girly, like, I don't know, wine or vodka tonic.

Liza: You're too young to know about girly drinks.

Damon: You see anybody kicking me out?

Liza: Well, one word from me and Bartender Bob over there will kick you out on your rear.

Damon: I'll prove to you I got a right to be here. Check this out.

Liza: Oh, come on. Seriously?

Damon: What? I paid 100 bucks for that thing. It's good.

Liza: You got ripped off. You really should get your money back. Actually, you know what? I'm gonna save you the embarrassment and getting arrested.

Damon: Come on. That's just -- that's just mean. How am I gonna get a drink now?

Liza: Don't ask me. I'm a lawyer.

[Damon sneezes then downs Liza's shot]

Liza: Are you ki --

Damon: Ahh. Don't worry. Don't worry. I won't call the cops on you.

Angie: I mean, Damon has people who care about him and want to help him, and he just keeps putting up these walls, you know, like he doesn't want anyone near him. Why do you think that is?

Jesse: I'm sorry to interrupt you here, but can we pick this up later?

Angie: Oh, sweetheart, I'm sorry. I'm going on and on about Damon and here you are trying to work.

Jesse: Stop, stop, stop. You know how I love hearing you go on and on about anything. It's just that I've got something in the works right now.

Angie: I'll let you get back to it.

Jesse: Ok.


Jesse: We'll check in later, ok?

Angie: Ok. Don't work too hard.

Jesse: All right. Listen. Don't worry about Damon, ok? We'll find out what makes that kid tick. Yeah, so what's the progress?

Newscaster [on David's TV]: The jury is still out at this time. In other legal news, action is being taken against current fugitive at large Dr. David Hayward. An arrest will be made today. Correction -- an arrest has been made today. Greenlee Hayward, Dr. Hayward's new wife, has been taken into custody. She reportedly will be charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive. A charge that, if convicted, could land Mrs. Hayward a lengthy prison stay.

J.R.: Don't believe what Annie's feeding you, Dad. She didn't do this out of the kindness of her heart.

Colby: Are you kidding me? Annie doesn't have a heart. Dad, you are really sure Annie was the donor?

Adam: Yes, of course, I'm sure. I was there when they took her in for the procedure.

Scott: How about we table this conversation for later and let J.R. get some rest?

J.R.: No, I'd like to hash this out right now.

Adam: Well, I can understand if you don't want to be indebted to my wife. What do you want me to do? Let you die?

J.R.: It wouldn't have come down to that.

Adam: No. You're wrong. It had already come down to exactly that. Now, if it bothers you so much, don't thank Annie. Forget about Annie. But don't forget the fact that she saved your life. Now, I'm gonna have to try to find my wife, try to make things right with her.

Annie: I don't have to justify myself to the woman who's after my husband.

Brooke: Oh. Are you even listening to a word I'm saying?

Annie: Yeah, and it only proves what I already know. You came back to get Adam. But it is not gonna work. Whether you like it or not, I love Adam, and he loves me, and I am so sick of having to prove that to everybody.

Brooke: You don't have to prove it to anyone except to Adam. But that's not enough for you.

Annie: I don't have to listen to this.

Brooke: I think you should listen, because this is for your own good.

Annie: No, you are trying to make me doubt myself. You are trying to make me doubt Adam's feelings for me. Well, I will not let you get between us.

Brooke: Annie, I know that life has not always been easy for you. I've told you I understand. I know what it's like to be lonely and to be desperate for love. But take it from me. You cannot force or manipulate anybody into loving you. Just be honest with Adam and honest with this family about who you are and what you want and most of all, be honest with yourself.

Annie: I have never hidden who I am.

Brooke: Well, then who are you? What do you want? Do you even know?

Newscaster: We'll continue to update you as we get reports on the further development of Mrs. Hayward's arrest.

[David leaves his refuge in the attic]

Colby: Annie saving your life -- it's so -- "Twilight Zone."

J.R.: Colby, it's been "Twilight Zone" since Dad married that bitch. But I think I have a way to get things back to normal.

Colby: The only way life will be normal is when we say Sayonara to step mommy dearest. Bone marrow donor or not, I do not trust her.

J.R.: Yeah, she's still out to ruin this family.

Colby: So, what are we gonna do about it?

J.R.: She saved my life. So we use that against her.

[Door closes]

Brooke: Everything ok at the hospital?

Adam: Uh, yeah, sure.

Brooke: Oh, good. I -- I have a meeting with a writer that I want to bring on board at "Tempo." I can cancel, though, if you want somebody to talk to.

Adam: No, no. That's fine. You go ahead. Have your meeting. Is Annie -- is she home?

Brooke: Ah, yeah. I think she's upstairs. Are you sure you're ok?

Adam: Oh, yes. Yeah, sure. Fine.

[Door closes]

[Annie sighs]

[Door opens]

Adam: Annie, how could you tell J.R. that you were his donor? Are you going to answer me, Annie?

Annie: Does it matter?

Adam: Yes. Yes, it matters. Very much. You knew how -- how he would react when he heard the news. He's very fragile right now. He doesn't need the stress.

Annie: Adam, what about what I need? Oh, wait. Who gives a damn, right? Who cares about Annie? You know what the answer is?

Adam: Annie --

Annie: Not one person in this family. I help J.R., I give him my bone marrow, yet still, I always come out the villain.

Adam: Well, Annie, you're not the only one involved in this.

Annie: No, of course. It's not about me. Of course not. Because J.R.'s sick, he's allowed to say whatever the hell he wants to say. He calls me pathetic. He tells me that I'm a liar. You know how that made me feel? That made me feel like no matter what I do, I will never be good enough for this family. I will never be wanted. I got to tell you, Adam, that's the way I grew up feeling, and I refuse to let anybody make me feel like that again.

Adam: What are you doing?

Annie: Maybe it's time for me to go.

Adam: Oh. Are you really leaving or are you just threatening to so I'll beg you to stay?

Liza: [Laughs] Damon, so, seriously, how old was she? Come on.

Damon: You don't want to know.

Liza: I do want to know.

Damon: I put my I.D. on the table, and she took one look at it and she looked me up and down and she said, "Sonny, you're one foxy thing."

Liza: Oh, no! No!

Damon: Oh, it was not a pretty picture. And she kept after me, too. I had to practically run out of the bar to get rid of her.

Liza: [Laughs] Oh, man. Thank you. I needed that. And I needed that. Thank you. Ha ha. [Clears her throat] Yeah.

Damon: Whoa, come on, now. Is that really necessary?

Liza: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it is. You heard my deal. You can stay if you don't touch my drink.

Damon: Don't you trust me?

Liza: Barely. Ok, so, it's your turn. Why don't you tell me why are you so pissed at the world?

Damon: Does it have to be something specific?

Liza: So, what, you're just -- pissed at everything?

Damon: Well, let's see. I got a girlfriend that ran out of town with my kid and now won't let me see him. I got a boss at the hospital who hates my guts. And oh, there's always the old standbys, the parents.

Liza: You mentioned that -- you don't get along with them.

Damon: Oh, did I mention what a royal jerk my dad is?

Liza: Hmm. Yeah, you did, and actually, I know the type.

Damon: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What's going on over there?

[Damon again drinks Liza's shot]

Liza: What are you looking at? Oh, my God. I can't believe you did that again.

Damon: You are such an easy mark. [Laughs]

Liza: Unbelievable. Wow. Wow.

Damon: Bet you have no idea.
