Randi: Wow. You're here early. You know the photo shoot is not till this afternoon.

Jake: She's excited. She didn't want to stay home. She wanted to come down and bother all of you lovely people. Good morning.

Amanda: Erica wanted me to get up to date on some projects for the Fusion Glam campaign.

Randi: Um, well, this isn't exactly Glam, but it came into your new Fusion email account.

Amanda: Ooh.

Jake: Hmm. I want to see.

Amanda: Ah ah ah! This is privileged information. You can only look at it if you're a future celebrity superstar like moi.

Jake: Ah, all right. No problem.

Amanda: Ha ha. Hey!

Jake: Oh, that's all right. Here. Ooh, this is -- "Amanda, you stun. You look like such fun. I'm the moon. You, the sun. You light up everyone. Amandafan." Who is this guy, Amanda? You do stun, but who is this guy?

Randi: Her biggest fan.

Jake: Hmm.

Amanda: You jealous yet?

Tad: Ok, baby, here you go. Let me have it. Talk to me about Damon.

Jesse: Well, I just can't see how the boy's gonna avoid doing time. He already admitted to texting while he was driving. Then he plows into Brooke. She ruptures a spleen. She could have died.

Tad: She didn't. Ok, she didn't. That's the fact. It's got to count for something. She's already been discharged from the hospital.

Jesse: What you need to do is prep yourself for a bad judgment at the hearing. This is all I'm trying to say.

Tad: I can't. I can't. Look -- what about Angela, ok?

Jesse: Mmm --

Tad: Angela just got finished proving to me that he's got some kind of developmental disorder, ok? Something that's not his fault, something that can be treated with therapy, like ADHD or something.

Jesse: She mentioned that. But if the boy won't go see a shrink, we got nothing to stop a judge from throwing the boy in jail.

Tad: There's got to be something.

Angie: It's not anything that you have to be ashamed of. There are a lot of people that need help sometime or the other. Counseling, medication.

Damon: Yeah, drugs for psychos to turn me into a zombie.

Angie: Get melodramatic if you want, but a psychiatrist may be able to give you tools that you can use to make your life easier.

Damon: I told you, I'm not talking to some headshrinker like I'm a nut-job, ok? I don't want anybody messing with my mind, all right?

Angie: Did you ever think that the reason you're so dead set against this is because you're afraid that you might learn something about yourself?

Damon: Ok, I really want you to butt out now. I made a mistake, and I can deal with it without anybody covering for me.

Angie: [Sighs] Damon, let us help you.

Damon: Look, just because you can clean up your own son's messes doesn't mean that you need to control my life, too.

Angie: Come again?

Damon: See? You don't much like it when somebody messes with your mind, do you?

Adam: Brooke. Where are you going?

Brooke: Oh, uh, actually, I have a meeting, and then I have to get to work.

Adam: Oh. You promised me you'd never leave without me.

Brooke: Oh. Huh. You don't need me. Come on. You have your whole family around you now.

Adam: Yes, I've gathered them all together for breakfast. I'm going to make my announcement this morning.

Brooke: Well, I don't really belong here for that anyway.

Adam: Please -- stay.

Annie: Good morning. What are you doing?

Amanda: Wow, this Amandafan just keeps 'em coming.

Randi: Yeah, I mean, the guy must post five times more comments on the Fusion website than anyone else.

Amanda: Well, not just there. Ever since my shoot went viral, he's been raving about me wherever it posts.

Jake: You know what? We should start a fan club. Yeah. With memberships and charge a lot of money.

Randi: Well, we already know who her number one fan would be.

Jake: That's ok with me as long as I'm the president. If I'm the president of the fan club, then this guy can swoon as much as he likes.

Amanda: Aw, how did I ever get such a supportive husband?

Jake: Hmm.

Amanda: Mmm. Now you just mussed your favorite model's lipstick. Ha! Oh. Oh, my God, my purse. I must have left it at home. It's got everything in it.

Jake: Home? Well, you know what? Since I'm the only person in your entourage, I'll run home and get it for you. I don't mind.

Amanda: No. Really?

Jake: No, it's ok. My shift isn't till tonight, so, all right? No problem.

Amanda: Thank you so much.

Jake: Oh, stop it. Bye, girls.

Randi: Bye.

Amanda: Thank you. Huh.

Randi: That is one guy you do not let get away, girl.

Amanda: No kidding.

Randi: [Sighs] Oh. Guess who. More email from Mr. Amandafan.

J.R.: I was -- I was looking for A.J.'s field trip permission slip. It was, uh --

Annie: I haven't seen it.

J.R.: Oh.

Annie: Do you feel like joining me on the terrace for some coffee?

J.R.: You know what? I'm not much of a coffee drinker anymore.

Annie: It's a beautiful morning. It would be a great time to talk. I would love to hear what you meant last night when you said you wanted me.

J.R.: Great. Uh, you know, we definitely have a lot to talk about. But the bottom line is, I don't want to hurt Marissa, and I know you don't want to hurt my father.

Annie: No, I don't. Those are the things that we need to talk about.

J.R.: Yeah, but I don't think this is the right time.

Annie: What better time than now, J.R.?

J.R.: Ok, you know what? How about tonight? We can meet right here when everyone's asleep.

Brooke: You can't bribe me into staying.

Adam: Well --

Marissa: Morning. Beautiful day, isn't it?

Brooke: Yes, it is.

Adam: Yes, it is.

Marissa: I need to talk to J.R. Have you guys seen him?

Adam: Um --

Annie: I'm not sure I can wait till tonight, J.R. I mean, I didn't get much sleep last night. I was tossing and turning and thinking about what you said.

[Door opens]

Marissa: Hi, Annie. You snuck out on me this morning.

J.R.: Huh. It's just -- I was restless.

Marissa: Yeah?

J.R.: I couldn't sleep.

Annie: Well, I really should go get dressed for breakfast. Excuse me.

Marissa: Hey.

[Door closes]

Adam: Good morning.

Brooke: Well, hello and good-bye. I have to get to my meeting.

Adam: Ah.

Annie: Adam, we need to talk.

Adam: Well, can't it wait a little longer?

Annie: No. No. This is too important to wait.

Jesse: I'll put in a good word for Damon at the hearing, but he's gonna need a lot more than my support to sway this judge.

Tad: Well, he's got it. He's got Angela. She's the chief of staff of the entire hospital. That's got to count for something.

Jesse: Tad, even if she airs her suspicions about a medical or a psychological disorder, without proof, it's just her opinion.

Tad: Ok, so where does that leave me?

Jesse: I don't know. Get as many people as you can to write letters to the judge. Sometimes it helps.

Tad: Already working on it. Jesse -- thank you. I appreciate everything you're doing for me.

Jesse: I know you do. Listen, maybe there's another way to handle this.

Tad: Like what?

Jesse: Might sound a little underhanded, but this kid is headed for a cliff. I think we should try to trip him up before he actually gets there.

Angie: I'm only trying to help you.

Damon: Help is another word for control the way you use it. I saw that when you "helped" your son out.

Angie: You know, this is the second time that you've said that. What are you talking about?

Damon: I saw you cover for Frankie. The day I found his pill bottles in the trash, he should have gotten in trouble. I learned that my first day of community service. Anyone could have found those pills. I might have taken them and overdosed.

Angie: But you didn't.

Damon: So? It doesn't mean he should get off free and clear. I saw you give him the pill bottle back, and then you gave him a big hug.

Angie: You have no idea what went on between us.

Damon: All I know is, when I screw up, I face it like a man. I don't need my mommy covering my ass.

Angie: Yes, Frankie did make a mistake, and yes, I did give him a break, because he deserved a break.

Damon: Oh, yeah. It had nothing to do with favoritism, I'm sure.

Angie: Frankie had significant war injuries causing him excruciating pain. He went through operations, physical therapy, but worked his butt off to get his hands back in shape. But he ditched the painkillers as soon as he knew it was time for him to go back to work in the O.R. again. That was a trying day. He made an honest mistake. So yes, what he did was totally different from what you've been doing, Damon. And no, my giving him a second chance is not about favoritism.

Damon: Then what's the real reason?

Angie: Frankie, my son, made an honest mistake trying to be the best he could be. You're in trouble fighting against the best that you can be. Now you think about that while you lie here bellyaching about how the whole world is against you.

Tad: Thanks for coming out.

Brooke: Well, my pleasure. You know, breakfast meetings in the park aren't that easy to come by.

Tad: If only. It's a little bit more than a breakfast meeting. I got to ask you a favor. And it's a big one. It's about Damon. He's in a lot of trouble, a lot of trouble because of this accident.

Brooke: You mean the accident that he caused? And I've also been told that he's been heading towards big trouble for a long time before now.

Tad: Yeah. That's the fact. He's been struggling with a lot of life issues and losing. But this judge -- he seems determined to send him away, to make him do time, and I'm afraid that if he does that, then his fate is as good as sealed.

Brooke: Well, what am I supposed to do about that?

Tad: I was kind of hoping you'd put in a good word for him, that you'd even be willing to write a letter to the judge, asking for a second chance.

Brooke: I have to tell you, Tad, when Damon told me the cause of the accident, it -- it really hit home. It's -- you know, I have friends in Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and they are really up in arms about texting while driving, and now you're asking me to support this young man who's responsible?

Tad: The young man who's responsible could be a much better man, but only if he gets another chance.

Brooke: I'm sure he can be, you know, but the question is, is he gonna make that effort?

Tad: There's only one way to find out, and that's only if you're on board.

Brooke: Ok. I'll write your letter on two conditions.

Tad: Name it.

Brooke: That Damon agrees to be interviewed for an article in "Tempo," an article that talks about the dangers of texting while driving.

Tad: I'll drag him down to your office if I have to personally.

Brooke: And that he agrees to do any public service announcements that I arrange, either local television or local radio, in which he talks about texting behind the wheel is as dangerous as drunk driving.

Tad: I think it's a great idea.

Brooke: You know, you are pushing awfully hard for this kid, and as far as I can tell, you're not getting much thanks for it. Now, I'm not really sure why, except I know that you're a very nice guy, and I also know that, you know, he's Hillary's son, but --

Tad: I'm not doing it because he's Hillary's son. I'll be honest with you. Beyond a point, I'm not doing it because of Hillary at all. I'm doing it because he's my son. I'm Damon's father.

Marissa: It's so good to have you back home and back in our bed.

J.R.: Yes, it's, uh, it's great. It's really great.

Marissa: And you know, A.J. just left for school with Emma all day. So after breakfast, you and I could head back upstairs and --

Annie: I know it seems like I've been very -- catty and jealous with Brooke, but I'm actually very grateful that she was here for you when you got sick. And now I -- I understand that exes can be just friends.

Adam: Where is this coming from all of a sudden?

Annie: I thought a lot about you and me when I was in D.C. and how I reacted to the whole Brooke situation, and -- Adam, I don't want to get you worked up about all this. And I don't want to be an additional stress for you. but I do think when people hold back how they feel, that can be an additional stress, so I guess -- I guess I just want to know -- if there's anything you're holding back from me -- about the way you feel about me or -- or where we stand.

Adam: Ann -- no, Annie, no. I --

Colby: Well, here he is. Hello.

Scott: Ok, where's this famous family breakfast I've been hearing about?

Colby: Yes, I'm famished.

Adam: We'll finish this later. We'll talk.

Annie: Guess I'll go get dressed.

Amanda: " -- Radiant. A refreshing innocence." Huh.

Randi: Aw -- oh, Amandafan isn't your only fan, so you better get used to it. Your photo shoot made a huge impression.

Amanda: Well, on this guy for sure.

Randi: No, not only on this guy, on a whole lot of people. Even Ciro -- Mr. Photographer Extraordinaire.

Amanda: Are you serious? He gave me such a hard time.

Randi: Yeah, well, he's one of your biggest supporters now. In fact, the way he tells the story, he discovered you.

Amanda: Well, I'm sure Eric will love sharing that credit.

Randi: It doesn't matter. You see, if you can win over a prima donna like Ciro, that means you've got the magic touch, sweetie. You may not be a supermodel yet, but it sure seems like you're on a launch pad, at least to me and Jake.

Amanda: I finally got it.

Randi: Got what?

Amanda: I know who's sending these.

Jesse: Hey, you don't look like the happy camper.

Angie: I'm just frustrated with Damon.

Jesse: And that bad attitude of his?

Angie: Well, you know, actually, I can deal with his less-than-winning personality. It's his refusal to get evaluated for ADHD or some other treatable disorder that gets me.

Jesse: Yeah, it's pretty tough to offer your help to somebody and then have it turned down. It's even tougher when your concern isn't purely professional.

Angie: What's that supposed to mean?

Jesse: Maybe you're not just seeing a troubled kid in there. Maybe you're seeing your brother Ted.

Angie: [Sighs] You know, you're right. Damon does act like Teddy, but I didn't start seeing that until I heard how badly his father treated him.

Jesse: Hmm. Your father wasn't particularly big on handing out respect either. I was a witness to that.

Angie: Yeah, I always felt so guilty about that back then. I mean, I was always the favorite child --

Jesse: Oh, wait a minute. You have absolutely nothing to feel guilty about -- with Ted or Damon. You hear me?

Angie: I know. I know. I mean, I certainly don't want to bring my feelings into the medical treatment that I'm trying to get for Damon. God, I just -- I'm just afraid that he's gonna swagger himself into jail.

Jesse: Why don't you let me have a crack at the kid? Um, I think I might have an idea or two.

Angie: Like what?

Jesse: You know, a different approach to the problem. I spoke to Tad about it earlier. I mean, it's not a medical approach, but it's worth a shot.

Brooke: Are you absolutely sure that Damon is your son?

Tad: [Laughs] I have the blood test to prove it.

Brooke: And he doesn't know?

Tad: No. That's the thing. He can't. I can't tell him until Hillary's on board.

Brooke: Hmm.

Tad: Wouldn't be fair to her, but that's impossible because she's off somewhere in Europe.

Brooke: Well, now I know why you've been wrapped up in his case.

Tad: And why I'm afraid to blow it.

Brooke: Oh, I cannot see that happening. You're bending over backwards to help him out.

Tad: I mean, it's so complicated. I can barely get through it myself. I mean, Hillary was the first woman I ever really loved, and I was so terrible to her. I tell you, it's one thing to go through life with regrets, but it's another thing when a piece of your life turns around and smacks you in the face -- gives you a new son to deal with because of it. One thing I know for sure. Since I was 9 years old, I've been tortured by the idea that I was one man's son by birth and another man's son because he was kind enough to love me. If it's all the same to you, I'd kind of like to be one and the same for Damon. I mean, I feel like life is saying, "Ok, here, here you go, Thaddeus, here's another chance. Just don't screw it up." You know? And I know that from the outside, he looks like a mess, but -- he's my mess, you know. I just -- I have these feelings, you know. I don't know why. I'm starting to have these fatherly feelings for the kid.

Brooke: Well, you love him. That's a good thing. Oh. It's so funny. I mean, it really is. You know, you --

Tad: Funny?

Brooke: Well, no. I mean --

Tad: It's hysterical. I can barely get through it without dying of laughter.

Brooke: What I mean is, like, you go along in your life, you know, and all of a sudden out of the clear blue sky, this -- I mean -- I've sort of started to have these -- same feelings lately.

Tad: About your kids? I mean, not about Jamie. Nothing happened, right?

Brooke: No. Adam. I've been having these feelings about Adam.

Tad: Wait. Wait.

Brooke: No, no.

Tad: Wait, no.

Brooke: All right? No. You stop.

Tad: You and Adam, after every --

Brooke: Are friends. We have become very close. It's -- interesting, but that's enough. It's just surprising, you know, that after so many years of -- oh, the pain and the lies and the -- just so -- so --

Tad: Complicated.

Brooke: Complicated. And it's not just the two of us sorting out our emotions now.

Tad: Annie.

Brooke: I mean, I moved out of the house once before, and everything inside is screaming, telling me I should move out for good, you know, because it's obvious that I am -- I'm creating this terrible strain in their relationship.

Tad: So why are you still there?

Brooke: Because Adam is sick, and he needs somebody to help him and to look after him, and I just feel that Annie -- is not that person right now.

Tad: And you are?

Adam: All right, let's get this thing underway.

[Dull tapping on glass]

Adam: Hmm.

[Sharp tapping on glass]

Adam: That's better.

[Annie chuckles]

Adam: What we have here is a case of the lion in winter. The whisper of mortality has never been louder in my ear, which means, I think, that I am human.

J.R.: Come on, Dad, you're just being melodramatic to get attention.

Colby: Everyone knows you're not human, Dad. You eat "mere mortals" for breakfast.

Adam: I've decided to remove myself from Chandler Enterprises. It won't be easy. It's been my life. But I'm going to have to stop it because I don't want it to be my life.

Scott: You know, you said that when you announced the merit trust. It didn't stick then any more than it does now. This company's what gets you up in the morning.

Adam: After this latest heart scare, I really have no choice. I plan to be living quite a few years down the road, and I hope to enjoy them in good health.

Scott: You'll outlive us all.

Annie: Of course, he will.

Adam: J.R., Scott, the company is yours as of this moment. You're in control. I, for one, am going to be looking savagely around to find what is really the most important thing in my life, but I don't have to. It's right here in front of me. All of you. My family.

[J.R. remembers]

Annie: J.R., I want you. I want you right now.

J.R.: No, Annie, we can't do this.

Annie: I'm begging you. Make love to me.

J.R.: Mmm. Do you realize what a tramp you sound like? What you look like? How could you do this to my father?

Annie: I can't help myself. I want you, J.R. I need you. You're all I think about.

J.R.: No. You may not care about my father, but I do, and he's gonna find out about this, because I have it all right here, shot by shot, your betrayal.

Adam: This has all been very hard to admit to myself, but I can be a stubborn old jackass, or so I'm told.

[Colby chuckles]

Scott: You are also a brilliant businessman who has built a strong company, strong enough to survive even your leaving.

J.R.: Absolutely. It's time for us all to come together, to build on what my father started, to make a real family effort.

Annie: Mmm. Happy anniversary, Mr. Chandler. [Giggles]

J.R.: Same to you, Mrs. Chandler. You know, it's been a whole year, and it still feels like we're on our honeymoon.

Annie: Hmm.

J.R.: I love you so much. The Chandlers back on top, and stronger than ever. That is my promise to you, Dad.

Tad: They say people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks, but if you ask me, a guy like Adam Chandler, he shouldn't be lucky enough to have somebody like you in his life, especially after all the things he's done in the day.

Brooke: He's done some great things, too.

Tad: Like what?

Brooke: When Laura died, I didn't think I would get through, and he helped me. He helped me get through it. He helped me survive, and I just want to return the favor.

Tad: By taking care of the magazine -- and taking care of him?

Brooke: It's just that Annie is so insecure with my presence around, and -- [Sighs] You know, I -- I -- I don't know how to tell her, but you know, she insists that there's something going on between Adam and me. No, there isn't.

Tad: You sure there's --

Brooke: There is not.

Tad: Not a little?

Brooke: Not the way she means.

Tad: Well -- there's certainly nothing wrong with trying to protect and care for somebody you love. It's why I keep him from dying. And it sounds like if you weren't there, that's what would have happened.

Brooke: I think it might have. But that's not the only thing that's troubling me.

Tad: What? All right, look, if you want to talk about it, I guarantee you, it'll never leave this park.

Brooke: No. It's just that there's something going on in that house. I -- I -- I don't know what exactly. I just have this feeling, and it just -- it scares the hell out of me.

Adam: Why are you so relieved? You're glad that this breakfast wasn't about adding codicils to the merit trust?

Colby: No, Daddy. We were just worried about you, that's all. I'm just -- I'm psyched you are finally out of all that corporate stress.

Annie: Any decision that keeps you healthy is fine by me.

J.R.: And I second that.

Annie: Yes. I suppose I'll just have to get used to not being the wife of one of the main titans of business anymore.

Adam: Oh, poor thing.

Annie: I just -- I just hope I can be everything that you need me to be.

Adam: You already are. Hmm. Ah, listen, you guys, come here. I'm gonna give you two a bit of parting advice. Yes.

Marissa: Annie, I just wanted to say -- that you don't have to try so hard to be special, 'cause you already are.

Annie: That's very sweet.

Marissa: No. I mean it. I mean it. You saved J.R.'s life, and for that, I will be grateful to you for the rest of my life. I really hope that we can, you know, get to know each other along the way.

Annie: I hope so, too, Marissa.

Marissa: I'd like to get to the point where we can think of each other as friends -- close friends -- sisters even.

Amanda: It all makes sense once I put the pieces together. The guy sending the gushy emails is obviously Jake.

Randi: What are you talking about?

Amanda: You heard him before he left. He was gushing about wanting to be my admirer, the president of my fan club. I mean, this is just a sweetheart way to show me how much he loves me.

Randi: Hmm, I don't know about that, Amanda.

Amanda: I do. This is exactly the kind of thing he would do to pump me up about my new career.

Randi: What are you doing?

Amanda: Just gonna send a little love gram to my Amandafan --

Randi: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Amanda: Let him know how much I appreciate his support. Come on.

Randi: Hold on. Hold up. What makes you so sure that it's actually Jake? The last message came in, what, a minute after he left?

Amanda: That's what convinced me. He must have sent it from his phone. "My dearest Amandafan -- "

Damon: What are you here for, to take me away?

Jesse: No, I have people to do that for me. I'm here for a little one on one, a little chat.

Damon: Chat about what?

Jesse: Your future.

Damon: [Scoffs] What do you care about my future?

Jesse: Actually, it's my wife, Angela, who cares, and Tad, so out of respect for them, I said I'd come in and try to offer a little advice on how to survive.

Damon: Survive?

Jesse: In prison, Damon. You're gonna be fresh meat up there in the big house, you hear me? So let me give you a few pointers. Number one, keep your eyes open, always. But don't get caught staring at a fellow inmate 'cause he'll take it as a challenge and want to beat you senseless or worse.

Damon: You trying to scare me or something?

Jesse: No, man. I'm just telling it like it is, ok? Another thing you're gonna want to do is work out as much as you can. Beef it up, you know, protect yourself.

Damon: I can handle myself pretty good.

Jesse: Yeah, you think so, huh? Prison fight is nothing like a regular street fight. It's brutal. You know all that stuff you've seen on television about how these guys like to make young boys like you their "property"? It's true. So what you're gonna want to do is find the biggest, baddest thug in the joint and make him your friend. I don't know, you give him your food, steal cigarettes for him, and he'll help keep all the other animals off your back. He'll also help you do your time without any serious injuries -- or disease. Have I left anything out?

Brooke: So, you survived your big breakfast announcement?

Adam: Yep, all in one piece. I am a little lost, though.

Brooke: Well, you're right here. You're where you're supposed to be. You're surrounded by your family.

Adam: It's never that simple, though, is it?

Brooke: No, I guess it's not.

Adam: Mm-hmm. What in blazes am I going to do with myself?

Brooke: Well, I can tell you one thing you're not going to do. You're not going to wallow in self-pity. I mean, you're not going to tell me that Adam Chandler can't think of anything to do with his life other than sit in some old stuffy boardroom? Uh-uh. I'm not buying that.

Annie: J.R.

J.R.: What is it?

Annie: I don't want to wait until tonight to talk about us. I don't want to wait another second. I spoke to Adam and --

J.R.: What did you say?

Annie: Nothing about what happened between us. I just wanted to know where we stood, and I hate the idea of losing him, but I wanted him to be honest with me. And I want you to be honest with me, too.

J.R.: I want that, too. I want that --

Annie: I want you to tell me how you really feel about me, and I need you to tell me now.

Jake: One purse for a very special -- person. You know, I'm gonna have to get a supply of these and keep them in the car. Anytime you're feeling lonely, and I'll just --

Amanda: You are so sweet.

Jake: It's all right.

Amanda: Did you get it?

Jake: Uh, get what?

Amanda: My reply, Mr. Amandafan.

Jake: Huh. Hmm. Is there piece of the conversation that I missed or something?

Randi: Amanda seems to think that you're her secret admirer.

Jake: Really?

Randi: Yes.

Jake: What, the cheesy guy? The cheesy the guy sending those cheesy emails?

Amanda: Ok, cheesy guy, it was a wonderful intro to stardom, but you really didn't have to.

Jake: Babe, I promise you, that's not me. On my honor.

Amanda: Oh, come on, Jake.

Jake: What, I'm not --

Amanda: Don't deny it. I'm not mad or anything. It was a really, really cute thing do.

Jake: I am not sending any emails to this Fusion address, I promise you. That's -- somebody else is sending those to you.

Amanda: It has to be you sending them. I mean, who else?

Jake: Babe, I didn't send that, ok? I didn't send that. Plus, I would like to think of myself as a little more creative, you know?

Amanda: Oh, God.

Jake: What? What is the problem? Why is it a big problem?

Randi: Well, she kind of turned it into a two-way street.

Jake: Wait a second. You didn't -- you didn't respond to this yahoo, did you?

Amanda: That's what I sent back to him.

Jake: Are you kidding me? You realize that you sent this to a stranger, right? To a complete, strange stranger.

Angie: Hi. You here to see Damon?

Tad: Yeah. I just thought I'd prepare him for his, you know, probation hearing, tell him what to say, you know.

Angie: And not to say.

Tad: Yeah.

Angie: Listen, um, I would wait for a minute before you go into his room. Jesse's in there with him now.

Tad: Oh, yeah? Did he get any luck convincing him to go for the Psych evaluation?

Jesse: Oh, yeah. As a matter of fact, the kid's practically begging to see every shrink in the house.

J.R.: Why can't you wait till tonight?

Annie: Because -- because. The -- the image of us and you and me -- I can't get it out of my mind, and I can't focus on anything else, and I'm scared that I'm gonna say something stupid and it's gonna come out --

J.R.: All right, maybe we should talk about this in the parlor.

Annie: What difference does it make where we talk about it? You feel something for me, J.R. I'm sure of it.

J.R.: That's why I think it's better to wait so we can talk about it more freely.

Annie: This is me talking freely. What happened in D.C. wasn't a lie. It was real. It was unstoppable. It was this.

[Annie kisses J.R.]

Brooke: I mean it, Adam. You can't turn over your whole life's work to your family and curl up in front of the fireplace and die. You have your whole future ahead of you. I mean, for heaven sakes, carpe diem. You can do whatever you want. All you have to do is focus and figure out what that is.

Adam: Of course, of course. I mean, you're right. And my family will help me get through this.

Brooke: Yes, your family will, including Annie.

Adam: Yes, Annie. I love her so much. I just don't think I can get through this without telling you how I feel -- how I feel about you.

Brooke: No, Adam. I don't want to hear it. I don't -- I don't --

[Adam kisses Brooke]
