Jake: Babe! You seen my wallet?
Jake: My wallet. I've looked everywhere for it. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Amanda: Did you have it this morning before you left to the gym?
Jake: I've looked everywhere but my gym bag. Oh! Wallet. That's amazing. Thank you.
Jake: I tell you, I'd be lost without you. Losing my wallet, losing my mind, lose my glasses, lose my keys. Thank God for you. Thank God Trevor makes noise. He's easier to find. Not that I've ever lost him, you know. I -- there was one time that I -- but in my defense, you put him down, he's so quick now. He's like lickety-split fast --
Jake: You know. No, seriously. I'm serious. I mean it. You're amazing because, you know, you help me, and you stay on top of all my rubbish and him and everything else piled on top. I mean, I just want to take a moment and say have I told you lately how fantastic I think you are? Have I?
Amanda: You're trying to make me feel better. I'm fine.
Jake: No. Ahh -- you're the one who's trying a little too hard -- want to know the truth. I'm not just pretending everything's fine, you know. Your mom behaving the way she's behaving, and you're ok. You're not freaked out.
Amanda: I am ok.
Jake: Ok. Ok. Then why is it you keep looking at all of these?
Jesse: Yeah, the shop owner couldn't make a positive ID, so we're gonna have to go ahead and drop the charges against Damon Miller. You heard me. All right.
Angie: We both know Damon broke that window. He was so angry after finding out Tad was his father. And not that I blame him. He's been lied to his whole life, but that doesn't give him the right to go around disrespecting people or their property.
Jesse: Yeah, well, you've done enough to try to help that boy. We both have. I think it's time for us to both step back and let Tad take it from here, all right? We should take this opportunity to get the hell out of Dodge.
Angie: Sweetie, I am just too busy.
Jesse: All I'm asking is one afternoon, Angela, come on. We need this.
Angie: What do you have in mind?
David: Ooh. You're in a good mood.
Liza: So my daughter invited a felon to move in with her. How happy would you be?
David: Mine married a pathetic alcoholic. Feel better?
David: Well, I have some news that might change that, certainly brightened my day.
Liza: Well, what is it?
David: It's payday.
Marissa: I'm just feeling weird, like I can't get a straight answer from anyone. Scott, you've always been honest with me. Please, tell me what's going on. Why is Adam so angry with J.R.?
Scott: You'd have to ask him.
Marissa: No. I'm asking you.
Scott: Well, you know, sweetie, this is a conversation that you need to be having with your husband.
Marissa: No. You are not going to get out of this that easily.
Annie: Did anyone see you?
J.R.: No. No one knows I'm here.
Annie: So why are we here?
J.R.: Do you even have to ask? Ever since D.C., everything's been so confusing. We get in a room alone together, the next thing you know --
Annie: We can't keep our hands off each other.
J.R.: And that can't keep happening. I know that, but for some reason it does. I don't want it to happen. At least that's what I keep telling myself. But -- at the same time -- God help me. I want you.
Annie: What the hell are you trying to pull?
J.R.: Do you think that this is a game that I'm playing? You think I enjoy sneaking around, cheating on my wife? I wish you didn't exist, that way I couldn't have these thoughts.
Annie: But I do exist, and your plan all along has been to get rid of me.
J.R.: Yeah, and it backfired in a major way. I was never supposed to end up in bed with you. I was trying to prove to my father who you really were.
Annie: Well, your father saw much more than that.
J.R.: I know. And you know what he said to me after he caught us together? Why, J.R.? Why did you take it so far? He called me out. I mean, I never would have slept with his wife if part of me didn't want to.
Annie: You couldn't resist?
J.R.: I still can't. At the house, Marissa could've walked in at anytime. That's not me. No. In fact, it made me even more excited. Huh. How sick does that sound?
Annie: You keep asking, "What are we gonna do about this? What are we gonna do about us?" I think it's time you came up with an answer.
Marissa: It's something personal with Adam. Annie saved his life after Stuart died, so no matter how betrayed he feels, there's got to be a part of him that still feels grateful to her for that. I know he's happy with Brooke, but -- maybe he wants to make sure that Annie's happy, too.
Scott: You -- what, you mean with me?
Marissa: Who else would I mean? You care about her, don't you?
Scott: The night my father died, um, this family, it almost fell apart, and Uncle Adam did, and Annie, she -- she stood by him. She protected him. Despite the fact that everybody in town was pointing the finger at her, she could have turned him in and cleared her name, but she didn't. So, yeah, no matter what, I care.
David: The thought of that many zeroes should at least rate a smile.
Liza: Well, I'll be happy when I get my portion of the commission check.
David: Oh, for crying out loud, man, the contract isn't even dry yet, you know? Have a little patience, darling. We're about to get everything we want.
Liza: What I want is for Colby to realize what a no-good punk Damon is.
David: Well, that should be easy. Just point to Tad. Like father, like son.
Liza: Yeah, I've dropped that bomb already.
David: Really? You know, I'm just surprised that Damon hasn't run for the hills from Tad.
Liza: He's too interested in my daughter to run anywhere.
David: Ah, there's the rub. Wouldn't be the first male to be blinded by love.
Liza: It's not love.
David: Ok, well, then fine. It's nothing to worry about. So why don't you stop stressing and celebrate.
Liza: Shouldn't your wife be here celebrating with you?
David: She's in Rio right now. She had some business to take care of.
Liza: And you didn't go with her? Why not? I mean, you could have taken that honeymoon you didn't get.
David: Well, it's not like I didn't have a deal to close, right?
Liza: Is everything all right?
David: Wow, you seem to interested in everyone else's relationship these days.
Liza: Well, I, um, I just want Colby to realize what a huge mistake that she's making with Damon.
David: Fine. Just tell her.
Liza: I've told her. Believe me, I've told her, and it's only making it worse. I just don't want her to hate me.
David: Believe me, being liked by everyone isn't at all what it's cracked up to be. There's something to be said for stirring the pot.
Jesse: Let's go somewhere else.
Angie: No. We're not leaving. We're not giving him that kind of power.
David: I get the feeling this is gonna be more fun than I ever could have imagined.
Amanda: I should have known it was her. I mean, I read these emails now and it seems so obvious.
Jake: Honey, let me ask you something. Are you a mind reader? Are you supposed to -- how would you know that she was able to get to a computer or that she had access to even leave or escape or whatever she did?
Amanda: Well, if I hadn't been so caught up in being a model, maybe I would have --
Jake: Please don't start doing that and blaming yourself, please.
Amanda: You and Natalia could have been killed because I didn't put 2 and 2 together.
Amanda: You know what? Forget it. I don't even know why we're talking about this. Everyone is fine. My mother is where she needs to be, and it's over.
Jake: Well, yes, uh, almost. She's still at the hospital, and she's waiting to be transferred, so -- I'm just bringing it up in case -- if you wanted to have some sort of closure, now would be the time.
Amanda: I've been dealing with my mother's illness for my whole life. This is just another twisted chapter, and I really just want to turn the page and start over.
Jake: Ok. All right. Ok.
Amanda: Well, you, uh, really should be getting to work.
Jake: Thank you.
Amanda: Gonna be late.
Jake: Right. Oh, you know, did I tell you that Tad said to me that the kids were asking about Trevor? I guess the girls had been missing him since we haven't been there since we moved out, and I don't know, I was thinking to myself maybe it would be nice if you called Opal, you know, and get them all together, and this way the kids could have a play date.
Jake: Aw, look at that. Trevor agrees. What's up, little man? You want to see your cousins, right? Is that what this is about? Well, I was just talking to Mommy about that. Yes, "I would like to see my cousins. I think I would have a good time," he says. I think you would, too. What do you --
Amanda: That sounds great. Sure.
Jake: Ok, good. Good. All right, there's Mama.
Amanda: Come here.
Jake: Where are those keys? Oh, I took 'em, all right.
Amanda: I love you.
Jake: Bye. Ahh --
J.R.: What happened in D.C. changed everything. I don't know how to move past this. I don't know how to fix things.
Annie: D.C. was not the first time things got heated between us. You kissed me long before that, remember?
J.R.: Yeah. I was trying to get you to confess to Stuart's murder.
Annie: What, same plan, though, to seduce me. Do you see a pattern happening here, J.R.? And you can toss it up to whatever you want and say the desire between us is only physical, but you know together we could be unstoppable.
J.R.: What are you talking about?
Annie: You're a fighter, J.R. I saw it at the hospital. You had all the odds stacked against you, and you never gave up. Well, neither do I. Ever. Two people that determined together, they can accomplish anything. You do know your father's probably on a beach somewhere, right, thinking he got the last laugh. I mean, don't you want payback?
J.R.: Yeah, and no matter what happened, that company is my birthright.
Annie: Well, exactly. That's what I'm saying. Adam can't just take that away from you. Together, we could fight to get you what you deserve, what you've always deserved: Really run this family. You can accomplish really great things if you have a great partner.
J.R.: What are you doing?
Annie: Making a toast. It's sparkling cider. Don't worry. To -- our future.
J.R.: Wait a second. I haven't even said yes.
Annie: You invited me to a hotel alone.
J.R.: To talk.
Annie: Ha! When was the last time we just talked?
J.R.: You know, you're right. I knew exactly what would happen if we came here.
Angie: Now, what happened to the man who couldn't wait to get his wife out for a hot date?
Jesse: He's wishing that he had gone somewhere else.
Angie: Baby, just pretend he's not here.
Jesse: J -- he's right --
Angie: Ok? Look, you know what? This afternoon was supposed to be about us, ok? Now, between my busy schedule and all the hours you're putting in at the station, as you keep saying, we barely have time to see each other anymore, so I don't want to waste this precious time with David Hayward. So can we please enjoy each other's company?
Jesse: You're right. Absolutely. Let's have some wine, huh? We didn't order that.
Waiter: Compliments of Dr. Hayward.
Jesse: Ahh -- pretend he's not here, huh?
Jake: Janet Dylan. How is she behaving herself?
Nurse: She's doing ok. Taking her meds twice a day.
Jake: She seem agitated or combative at all?
Nurse: No. She seemed sad. Keeps asking for her daughter. Want me to do anything?
Jake: No. I got it. Thanks.
Jake: How are you feeling?
Janet: Where's Amanda?
Jake: Um, she's taking care of the baby.
Janet: Oh, that's good. A mother should be with her child.
Jake: And you? How are you doing?
Janet: Meds take some adjusting to. I still have a headache, but I am taking the pills like clockwork. I have to for Amanda.
Jake: That's good. You know, Amanda wants you to get better.
Janet: Well, even with medicines I'm never gonna be quite right.
Jake: Don't think like that. You know, a little faith and a little hope and a good attitude, it can go a long way.
Janet: I have had years of hoping. Oh. All I wanted was to be with Amanda. All I wanted was to be with my little girl, and it took a while, but I finally figured out a way to do it 'cause I missed her so much. She isn't going to come, is she?
Jake: I don't think so.
Janet: Oh --
Jake: But it's because I think she blames herself for Natalia getting hurt, you know.
Janet: Oh, that bullet barely grazed her.
Jake: And what would have happened if you'd have hit the baby?
Janet: No. No. I never would have hurt the grandbaby.
Jake: But, Janet, you fired a gun in the room and the baby was next door.
Janet: The lady cop was trying to keep me from my family, and I had to stop her.
Jake: I know -- I know you love Amanda.
Janet: More than anything.
Jake: The problem is you don't want to share her with anybody. You know, she has a life now and a family. So it can't just be the two of you anymore. Maybe someday -- maybe someday you'll understand that.
Janet: All I want is to know that my little girl is going to be ok.
Jake: I love your daughter. I'm taking good care of her. I promise you -- I promise.
Amanda: Hey, where's the girls?
Opal: Oh, they're at their dance class. I thought maybe we'd pick them up together, you know, surprise 'em about the play date. How are you holding up, honey?
Amanda: I'm fine.
Opal: You know, if there is anything that I can do to help in any way --
Amanda: Well, actually I could really use a favor.
Opal: What's that?
Amanda: Well, I got called into work, so I was wondering if you could watch Trevor for a few hours?
Opal: Oh, well, sure, but I was kind of hoping that we would have a little time together, you know? I could call Erica, you know, see if I can pull a few strings.
Amanda: No, really, I appreciate it, but you know, Erica gave me a chance, and I just want to prove that I deserve it.
Opal: Oh, honey, you don't have to worry about that. You know, Erica has her own history with Janet. She understands how your mama can be.
Amanda: You know, she's caused a lot of trouble, and I just don't want her to ruin this for me, you know?
Opal: Well, whatever you think is best. So I guess the little guy and I will be heading off then, huh?
Amanda: Ok. Thank you, Opal.
Opal: You just give me a call when you're ready to pick him up.
Amanda: All right.
Opal: Hey there. Say bye-bye to your mama.
Amanda: Mommy loves you, ok? Bye, sweetie.
Opal: All right, give me a call.
Opal: Bye.Amanda: Hey, it's Amanda. I'm away from the phone. Leave a message.
Jake: Hey, Opal, it's me, yeah. I just wanted to see how the play date was going. Ha ha. Well, it -- can I just ask you a favor? Can you tell the girls to lay off the tutus 'cause I think Trevor's worn enough pink to last a lifetime, you know what I'm saying? Yeah. Can I talk to Amanda? Well, I don't understand. I thought that -- I thought that -- how could she be going to work? I thought she had the day off. I thought Erica gave her the -- ok. Thanks.
Jesse: We're not accepting this.
Angie: Well, that would be rude. Guess I'll have to go over and thank him.
Jesse: No, baby, look. He's just messing with us. Don't even -- don't even waste your time.
Angie: Just take a minute.
Jesse: Don't hurt him.
David: Problem with the vintage?
Angie: Can you give us a minute?
Liza: Actually we're in the middle of a business meeting, and I charge by the hour. It's highly unlikely that David wants to keep that tab running.
Angie: Oh, he can afford it. Clearly.
Jake: Amanda. Hey. I called over to Opal's, and she said that you went to work, and I called over to work, and Randi said that she hadn't seen you at Fusion, so I -- you ok?
Marissa: Puts you in charge of the company. With the way the Chandlers work, it basically puts you in charge of this family, too. Is that what you want?
Scott: [Scoffs] Maybe, uh, maybe this is my chance to make everything right, put this family back on track.
Marissa: What about J.R.? No matter how many fights he and Adam have had, it's always been his dream to take over the company. God, they were finally in a good place, and now this happens.
Scott: We've all had to learn to live with disappointment.
Marissa: Yeah. It's hard to believe that J.R. could be disappointed in anything after coming so close to dying. Compared to that, everything should be a blessing. That's the part I really don't get. J.R. should be enjoying every moment, but he's not. He just -- he seems so angry all the time. Look, Adam had to have a reason. Let me know when you figure it out.
Annie: Ahh. You know, Adam walking in on us was the best thing that could have ever happened. It forced us to face the truth. We have a connection, J.R. There's no point in fighting it anymore.
J.R.: I wish it were that easy.
Annie: I know you feel bad sneaking around behind Marissa's back, and so do I.
J.R.: You feel bad?
Annie: Of course, I do. I'm not heartless, and Marissa's been really supportive since Adam took off with Brooke, and you know, once she finds out the real reason he left town, it's going to hurt.
J.R.: Well, she's not going to be the only one. My son's gonna get caught in that fallout.
Annie: Well, then I will be there to soften the blow. Besides, A.J. -- whoa.
J.R.: You feeling all right?
Annie: Whoa. I just got really dizzy.
J.R.: Yeah, I used to get the spins when I had too much, too. Ha ha.
Annie: No. Whoa. It's -- it's non-alcoholic. Do you feel ok?
J.R.: Hmm? Never better?
Annie: Oh, my God. What did you do to me?
J.R.: It's over, Annie. The sex, the blackmail, your ridiculous plan to try to get us to team up to take over the family. You're crazy if you think I'd leave my wife for you. I love Marissa. I can't even stand to look at you.
Annie: But you told me --
J.R.: I told you what you wanted to hear.
Annie: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. You bastard. Ah! Ah! [Moaning and gasping]
J.R.: You're pathetic, Annie. It's no wonder my father left you for Brooke.
Annie: I'm gonna tell. I'm gonna tell Marissa everything.
Jake: You know, I don't expect you to be ok. Your mom just showing up the way she did. I mean, it's -- it's -- as many times as you tell me that you are ok, it's just a lot to deal with.
Amanda: I've never dealt with my mom's illness. I mean, how do you deal with that? Every time she does something crazy, I just try to push it out of my head and move on, you know, because it's just easier to do it -- then having to face every day --
Jake: Honey, you know what? You don't have to face your mom or deal with your mom if you don't want to. That's not what I was doing. I'm not pushing you to do that.
Amanda: Well, it's not facing her that scares me. I'm scared of the possibility of turning out like her.
Jake: It's never gonna happen.
Amanda: You don't know that, Jake.
Jake: It's never going to happen.
Amanda: You don't know what makes someone go crazy. I mean, just one day they just snap. There's no warning. There's no explanation. If I ever hurt Trevor the way my mom has hurt me, I would never forgive myself.
David: Careful, Angela. We're on a terrace full of witnesses. Wouldn't want to put your husband in a position where he has to arrest you for assault.
Angie: Oh, I'm not going to smash it over your big head, if that's what you're worried about.
David: It was a gesture. I know how hard it is to be chief of staff, the toll it can take on a marriage.
Angie: My marriage is just fine. You tried to blackmail me into getting your job back, so you could care less about my well being.
David: Is it really that hard for you to believe that I saw the two of you over there trying to have a romantic meal, and I thought, "What can I do to make it better?"
Angie: All right, enough of the games, David, what is this about?
David: It's simple, Angie. I honestly thought that you could use a nice, stiff drink today.
Scott: She's helping A.J. with his homework. Where were you?
J.R.: Don't worry about it.
Scott: I got a right to know what's going on.
J.R.: Why, Scott? Because my dad left you in charge? I don't give a damn what that piece of paper says. I don't take orders from you.
Scott: No. You just come to me for favors. I just spent the last half an hour tap dancing around Marissa's questions so that you could go take care of something, and I want to know what the hell it was.
J.R.: Maybe you should focus on Chandler. It's a big job. You wouldn't want to fall flat on your face straight out of the gate.
Scott: That's all you care about, isn't it? Business. Never mind the mess that you have made of your life. You had sex with Annie. You betrayed your wife and your father, but all you can think about is how you lost out on the company. Life is so unfair.
J.R.: I don't need this right now.
Scott: Well, you go upstairs, you better be prepared to answer some tough questions, because she knows there is more going on than what we are saying, and that letter proves it. God, J.R., wh -- it's bad enough that you slept with Annie, and now you're lying to Marissa about it, but you got me lying to her, too. She deserves better.
J.R.: You don't think that I know that? I hate what I did to this family -- and how hurt Marissa will be when she hears the truth. But she needs to hear it from me, so that's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna tell her everything. Right now.
[Passed out on the floor, Annie dreams]
Annie: J.R.? Uh -- J.R.
Annie's voice: J.R.? J.R.!
J.R.'s voice: Mmm.
Marissa's voice: In here.
J.R.'s voice: See, we're a little busy right now, Annie.
Annie's voice: I can see that.
J.R.'s voice: You can shut the door on your way out. We'd like some privacy.
Annie's voice: You look very happy together. You two really can survive anything.
J.R.'s voice: Well, cancer was tough, but we got through that. Now we just want to enjoy every minute that we have.
Annie's voice: Cancer? No, I was talking about your infidelity.
Marissa's voice: That's right. Annie told me everything.
J.R.'s voice: Marissa, I can explain. [Choking]
Marissa's voice: I don't want to hear it.
Annie's voice: Here you go. This will be quicker.
Marissa's voice: I'm in no hurry. I want to make this as painful as possible.
Scott: Oh, she forced your hand, didn't she? And she threatened to tell Marissa everything. That's why you're coming clean. It's got nothing to do with you feeling guilty. Ok, yeah. Yeah, you're just as selfish as ever.
J.R.: Now, you can think what you want, Scott, but the bottom line is Marissa's gonna hear the truth from me, no one else. I made sure of it.
Scott: What did you do to Annie?
J.R.: I'm only gonna get one chance to make Marissa understand. I couldn't have Annie interfere.
Scott: Where is she, J.R.?
J.R.: I left her at the Valley Inn.
Angie: And just why would I need a stiff drink?
David: Chief of staff can be a very stressful job. You never know when problems may crop up.
Angie: It's the hospital.
David: Give them my love. Dr. Hubbard, you forgot your wine.
Angie: Keep it. Some day it'll be as bitter as you are.
Jesse: So this meeting with Dr. David Hubbard, business, pleasure?
Liza: Uh, that's privileged.
Jesse: And your reasons for helping him -- is that privileged information, too?
Angie: Baby, we're gonna have to do this lunch another time. I have to get back to the hospital.
Jesse: What's going on?
Angie: I have been called back for an emergency.
Jesse: Did they say what kind of emergency?
Angie: I'll find out when I get there.
Jake: You are nothing like your mother.
Amanda: But I could be. I've done the research, Jake. I know that some mental illness is genetic, and what if what is making my mom sick was passed down to me?
Jake: Yeah, genetics have something to do with it, but that's only half the story. Now, your father's genes, that's the other half, right? It is, and there's a lot of other factors you have to take into consideration, Babe. Three's lifestyle, there's stress, there's your family's support system growing up. Yes, your family might have a history of mental illness, but that does not mean that it's going to affect you, it's gonna become your problem. It does not mean that. It's like any other disease.
Amanda: Well, it doesn't guarantee that I won't either. I mean, what if, you know. Is there as test that I can take that proves that I don't have the crazy that my mom has?
Jake: No, there is no test for crazy, but I can tell you what I see. I can see the way you raise our child, the way you love him. It's pure, and it's selfless. That's the best kind of love. It is. The best kind of love. And you do it so that he's set up in this life to take his own journey, to take his own path in this world, and even if that pathway takes him away from us, away from you, and that's how I know that you are nothing like your mother.
Amanda: I want to believe that.
Jake: You have to believe -- you know how we break the cycle? You know how we stop the past from repeating itself? We learn from our mistakes. We learn from our parents' mistakes. We make a conscious decision to stop it and change it, and that is up to us, that is up to you, nobody else.
Amanda: Thank you.
Jake: Ok. Now, we can call Opal if you like, and we can set that play date up. We could do that.
Amanda: There's somewhere I need to go first.
Jake: That's funny, because I was actually heading there. It would be my honor if I could walk you. Yes?
Jake: That's a yes. That's a yes. You know, I will be with you every step of the way, ok? You got nothing to worry about.
Amanda: Jake, wait. Uh, I really think that I should do this on my own. Do you mind?
Jake: No, of course not. You know, I'll be around the corner. I'll be there for you.
Amanda: Thank you.
Amanda: Very much. I really wouldn't have been able to do this without your support.
Jake: Oh. It's in the job description as a husband.
Amanda: Well, it's a very important part.
Jake: Hmm. I guess that's why it's in the vows.
Jake: Go on.
Jake: Where you been?
Angie: I was out with Jesse, and I got an emergency page to come back to the hospital, and now that I'm here, I can't seem to find the emergency.
Jake: Well, I just got here myself. Do you want me to help you?
Angie: Yeah, come on with me. Something isn't sitting right with this.
Angie: What do you think you're doing?
David: You should have taken that wine. You're gonna want a drink right about now. Meet your new boss.
Jake: What are you talking about?
David: I just bought the hospital.
[Annie dreams while passed out in the hotel]
J.R.'s voice: Please, Marissa. I love you.
Marissa's voice: Really? You sure as hell weren't thinking about me when you had sex with your father's wife!
[Marissa aims a gun at J.R.]
J.R.'s voice: That was a mistake. I'm sorry. You don't want to do this.
Annie's voice: J.R.'s right. Let me.
[Annie takes the gun from Marissa]
Marissa's voice: Aim low. I want to make sure he suffers.
Annie's voice: Not a problem. Ah! Ah! Get off! Get off me! Get off!
J.R.'s voice: It's over! It's over!
Annie: Get off me! Get off me.
Scott: Annie, Annie, calm down. It's me -- Scott.
Marissa: You wanted to take a drink, didn't you?
J.R.: More than anything.
Marissa: Why? What's wrong?
J.R.: Marissa, there's something I need to tell you.
