Lily: Ethan! Ethan! Here's your mommy! Oh, Baby! You did it!
Holden: No, we all did.
Lily: Holden, I would have never gotten through this without you. No! No! Oh, my God, no! No! Oh, my baby! Oh, my baby! No! No! No, no!
Holden: Lily! Lily, its okay! It's okay.
Lily: Is he dead?
Holden: No, no, no, no. Look at me, look at me, look at me.
Lily: Oh, my God, Holden. You brought him out, and he --
Holden: Lily, Lily, Lily, you were just dreaming. You were just dreaming. We're still in the tent. Nothing has happened. It was just a bad nightmare.
Lily: Oh, it was so real. He wasn't moving, and then I looked at your face, and you were -- oh, God, Holden! It was so real!
Holden: It's not real. It's not real.
Alison: I can't believe all this has happened. We were only gone a couple days.
Aaron: Someone should have called us. We would have come home.
Emma: And what exactly would you have done? Worry? I mean, I think most of us have that covered.
Aaron: We would have been home, Grandma.
Emma: Well, you're here -- you're here now.
Alison: I can't believe he's been down in that hole for so long.
Aaron: He must be so scared.
Alison: Are they sure he's okay?
Emma: No. No, they're not sure he's okay. They -- they have this little -- this little device that they put inside the hole. They can kind of hear him, and they think he's all right, but they can't be sure. Can't be sure.
Aaron: Dad won't let anything happen to him, okay?
Emma: Yeah, I know. I know. He's such a little boy.
Aaron: Listen, I'm gonna out there, okay? See if I can help.
Alison: Okay, I'll go with you, okay?
Emma: Hi, Darling. Look who's here -- the honeymoon couple.
Aaron: Hey! I missed you.
Faith: Grandma, what were you talking about just then? Was it something bad? Is Ethan dead?
Henry: Call the maid, Honey. We'll have breakfast in bed. Oh, it's you.
Derek: Yeah. You okay?
Henry: Am I okay? You try sleeping, tied to a chair.
Derek: Yeah, well, you're the one who tried to escape.
Henry: How long are you planning on keeping me here?
Derek: Until Mr. Stenbeck tells me you're no longer a threat.
Henry: Derek, I'm only a threat to myself.
Derek: Yeah, well, obviously, he thinks differently.
Henry: What do you think?
Derek: Unfortunately for you, it doesn't matter what I think. I'll let you go when he says so.
Henry: Do you always do what you're told?
Derek: When James Stenbeck does the telling, yes.
Henry: Okay. What about Vienna and Bonnie? What did he tell you to do with them? Because, Derek, if anything's happened to those women, I tell you --
Derek: I gave you my word, none of you would be hurt.
Henry: I'm having a hard time respecting your word right now, especially if you tell me the shots are being called by Stenbeck.
Derek: Vienna and Bonnie are safe.
Henry: Are they still together?
Henry: Then they're not safe!
Vienna: Oh, you! You! Get away from me!
Bonnie: No, you get away from me!
Meg: Paul, where are you? Paul?
Maid: Good morning, Ma'am.
Meg: Have you seen Mr. Ryan?
Maid: Not this morning. I don't think he's been here since yesterday.
Meg: Oh, okay. Thank you.
Paul: Hi, it's Paul. Please leave me a message.
Meg: Paul, it's me. Where the hell are you?
Holden: Mike, what's going on?
Mike: Well, the engineer just brought the new rig, and the rescue guys are checking it out.
Holden: Will it hold my weight and Ethanís?
Mike: It'll hold that and a lot more. We just have to make sure it's secure.
Mike: Well, I need to make sure that we have stable enough ground to anchor it on.
Lily: That was supposed to be done by now. Morning. You said morning. It's morning. Well, what's taking so long?!
Mike: I know. We need to calm down and make sure we have everything safe first.
Holden: What's this for?
Mike: I was gonna ask you the same question. Did you try and go down there again?
Holden: No. Of course not.
Lily: He was with me in the tent.
Mike: Oh. Well, I'll ask Fred, see if he knows what it is.
Holden: Okay. So, what can we do in the meantime?
Mike: Nothing until we're ready.
Lily: Ethan, can you hear me?
Paul: He's fine.
Mike: Who is that? Who's down there?
Paul: This is your boss, Kasnoff. I'm down here doing your job for you, as usual.
Bonnie: Okay, nobody ever finds out about this. No one! And we do not speak of this again.
Bonnie: We were just cold, and it was a matter of survival.
Vienna: Well, that doesn't mean that I don't despise you.
Bonnie: Oh, don't you worry, Honey. I cannot even stand the sight of you.
Vienna: Great! So we won't tell anybody.
Bonnie: Absolutely, because what happens in this warehouse stays in this warehouse forever. I'm so hungry. I feel like I'm gonna faint!
Vienna: You and me both.
Bonnie: I cannot even remember when my last meal was.
Vienna: Do you think there's some food in here?
Bonnie: I don't know. Let's go see!
Vienna: Okay. I found something!
Bonnie: What you got? Okay. Corn, pudding, cream corn, and whole-kernel corn. Who worked here?
Vienna: How old is this?
Bonnie: I don't know. It doesn't really matter. The beauty of canned food is that it lasts forever. Little pots. Ah! And plates. Can opener. Great, let's go. Whole kernel or creamed?
Vienna: Whole kernel is probably safer.
Bonnie: Mm-hmm. Probably. Let's try. Okay.
Vienna: With your fingers?
Bonnie: Oh, come on. You can go look for sterling silver if you want, but I am hungry. That is so awful.
Bonnie: Have some.
Vienna: You just said it was awful!
Bonnie: But it's still food!
Vienna: No, I don't eat with my fingers.
Bonnie: Fine, you can be a dainty, little corpse.
Vienna: That's awful!
Bonnie: Come on, just eat it.
Vienna: No, I canít.
Bonnie: Fine. Starve if you want to.
Vienna: Fine. Just give this to me in 10 minutes.
Henry: Could you at least loosen the ropes a little bit? I'm starting to lose the feeling in my extremities.
Derek: Forget it, Coleman. I'm not gonna give you another chance to escape.
Henry: Who am I, Harry Houdini? How far am I gonna get on two numb feet, anyway?
Derek: Sorry. No can do.
Henry: Even inside a brute like you, there still beats a human heart.
Derek: Is that your twisted way to try to convince me?
Henry: That is over the top. Derek, all I'm trying to say is, you seem like a decent guy who's in the grip of a monster.
[Cell phone rings]
Derek: Coburn. Yeah, okay.
Henry: Who was that? Was that him? Did he tell you to kill me?
Derek: I thought you thought that even a brute has a heart.
Henry: What are you doing?
Derek: What does it look like?
Henry: Because I asked?
Derek: Because the monster said let you go.
Henry: Just like that?
Derek: Just like that.
Henry: And Vienna and Bonnie?
Derek: They can be let go, too. I can take you to them if you'd like.
Henry: Yes, I would like that. I would like that very much. Thank you so much.
Henry: Oh! They're asleep. So, what's this all about?
Derek: Well, as they say, I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.
Henry: In that case, I have the deepest respect for your privacy.
Barbara: Paul, the money went through. It's transferred into my account.
James: Hello, Barbara.
Barbara: Where is he?
James: It doesn't matter. You're too late.
Barbara: What do you mean, I'm too late? Oh, dear God. Not your own son!
James: Oh, of course not! Paul passed his test. He doesn't need your money.
Barbara: What test? What are you talking about?
James: Paul is about to rescue the boy at the Snyder farm. He'll become hero of Oakdale, assuming, of course, he survives.
Holden: How the hell did he get down there?
Lily: Paul, is Ethan with you? Is he okay?
Paul: Yeah, Ethanís -- he's fine. Except I think you just woke him up.
Mike: I still want to know what you think you're doing down there.
Paul: Well, I told you I was gonna be more hands-on, Mike.
Mike: And I told you to stay the hell away!
Paul: You know, as much as I'd like to debate this with you right now, maybe it's a good idea that we get the kid out of the hole first.
Lily: Mike, please, don't antagonize him.
Holden: Lily's right. He's down there. He could help us get Ethan out.
Mike: Okay, but -- we're gonna get everything set up. How long do you need, Fred?
Fred: Well, if we're just lifting the child, we don't need the new rig. We can handle this weight on the standard hoist. Get the small harness from the truck.
Lily: How long will that take?
Fred: Just a couple of minutes.
Lily: That's it? And you'll have him out?
Fred: That's the plan.
Holden: I told you. I told you it was gonna be okay.
Aaron: You know Dad won't let anything happen to Ethan, right?
Faith: I guess.
Emma: Hello? Oh! Oh, that's wonderful! Oh, will you call us as soon as you know anything? Okay. Thank you. Thank you so much. They're getting him out.
Aaron: Yes! I told you! It's gonna be okay!
Faith: He's gonna be okay!
Aaron: He's gonna be okay.
Lily: Mike, I thought you said this was gonna take a lot more time to make sure it was safe.
Mike: Yeah. That's when I thought that we were gonna have to lower Holden down and then both of them back up. But now that Paulís down there to put Ethan in the harness, it's a lot less weight.
Holden: Okay, Paul. Here it comes. There's a walkie-talkie inside so we can talk to you directly.
Meg: Mike, Paul didn't come home last night. Have you seen him?
Mike: No, I haven't, but I think I know where he is. Down there.
Meg: Oh, my God! Did he fall?
Mike: I don't think so.
Meg: Then how did he get down there?
Mike: I'm looking forward to asking him that same question myself.
Paul: I got it. I got it! Can you hear me?
Mike: Loud and clear. There's someone who wants to talk to you.
Meg: Paul, hey. What are you doing in there?
Paul: Meg, that you?
Meg: Yeah. Are you okay?
Paul: Yeah, I'm fine. Look, we got to get Ethan out of here right now, okay? Hold on. Hey. So, you like amusement parks, Kid?
Paul: All right. You got a ticket? Give me five. Get ready for the ride of your life.
Lily: What's taking so long?
Holden: I just hope he makes sure he puts that harness on right.
Mike: Paul, is there a problem? Paul?
Paul: Sorry. I needed two hands to put him in this thing.
Mike: Are you sure he's secure?
Paul: Yep. He's good to go.
Mike: All right. All set?
Meg: Okay, are they gonna be able to use this to get him out, too?
Mike: We need to put in the other rig to support Paulís weight.
Meg: Well, how long is that gonna take?
Mike: We're gonna do it as fast as we can. Okay, Paul. Are you ready?
Paul: Keep clear of the walls, okay? They look really shaky.
Mike: Got it. Here we go.
Paul: Here you go.
Meg: It's gonna work.
Lily: It has to.
Bonnie: There's no bowls anywhere, but I did find another spoon. So, just gonna have to eat out of that pot.
Vienna: At the same time?
Bonnie: Mmm. It's not bad. You can cook, kind of.
Vienna: I would have taken that as a compliment if it wasn't for the fact that you were ready to eat this stuff raw.
[Pounding on door]
Henry: Hello? Anyone in there?
Vienna: Oh, my gosh! Somebody's here! Somebody's here!
Henry: Hello? Anybody there?
Vienna: A little help, please! We're locked in!
Henry: Vienna, Baby, is that you?
Vienna: Oh, Henry! My God!
Henry: Is Bonnie with you?
Vienna: Yes, yes, yes!
Henry: Are you okay?
Bonnie: Yes, we're fine! Just get us out of here!
Henry: All right, all right! Hang on!
Vienna: Oh, my God! I knew Henry would save us!
Derek: I told you, no one would get hurt.
Henry: Yeah, yeah. You did. I thank you so much for that. How do we get in there?
Derek: I'm sure you'll figure something out.
Derek: Yeah, I told you I'd bring you to them. Getting them out is your problem.
Fred: Keep it coming. Nice and slow.
Barbara: Paul's down there?
Meg: How did you know?
Barbara: Is he all right?
Meg: He says he is.
Barbara: And they'll be able to get him out?
Meg: As soon as they can.
Holden: There he is.
Lily: Oh, my God! Ethan! Oh, my baby! Here we go. Here we go, Buddy. Oh, yes! He looks so pale.
Fred: Let us have a look at him. His pulse is good. Breathing is regular, but it's shallow. Hi. My name's Fred. Can you tell me your name?
Fred: How old are you, Ethan?
Fred: Does it hurt anywhere? Your head, your stomach?
Lily: He looks so listless.
Fred: Could be dehydration or shock. Why don't you take him to the hospital? They can take care of him over there.
Lily: We're gonna go with him.
Fred: Oh, sure.
Barbara: Are you gonna be able to get my son out of there?
Fred: We're working as fast as we can, Ma'am.
Barbara: That's just not good enough!
Mike: The bigger rig is in place, and it's ready to go. We're gonna get Paul out, okay?
Meg: Paul! Paul!
Mike: Paul, can you hear me?
Mike: Paul, can you hear me are you hurt?
Paul: I'm here.
Mike: Are you all right?
Paul: Yeah, I'm all right. I think. My dry-cleaning bill's gonna be crazy, but I'm okay. Kid makes it all right?
Mike: He seems to be all right. We're taking him to the hospital to check him out.
Paul: So, do you want to think about maybe getting me out of here?
Mike: We're working on that.
Paul: Working on what?
Mike: What do you think?
Fred: I'm not sure where we can anchor the new rig.
Meg: What do you mean? How are you gonna get him out?
Mike: I don't know if we can.
Vienna: Henry, the doors are all sealed shut! You need to get help!
Henry: I can't use my cell phone.
Vienna: Well, how are you gonna get us out?
Henry: I'm working on it. Don't worry. Got gas. All I need is a car. A bomb, huh? Just hang tight a minute! Okay, Ladies, something's gonna go boom, so I need you to take cover, all right?
Vienna: We're ready!
Bonnie: We're ready!
Henry: Here we go!
Vienna: Henry! Oh, my God!
Bonnie: Oh, my God! There he is!
Vienna: Oh, my God! Henry! Can you hear me? Henry? Henry? Oh, my God! Help, please! Help!
Alison: I don't know why I keep staring at the phone. It's not like it's gonna make it ring any sooner.
Aaron: No, I know. I can't help it, either. I feel like we should have heard something by now.
Alison: Maybe we should go down there.
Aaron: No. No, Grandma's right -- we have to just stay out of their way. This rescue team needs as much space so they can do what they have to do. Everything's gonna be fine, okay?
Alison: I know. I just can't believe we didn't even know about this until like a couple seconds ago. I mean, someone should have called us.
Aaron: Maybe they felt bad. They didn't want to bother us on our honeymoon.
Alison: That's sweet, but my mom wouldn't have waited.
Alison: I love her to death, but when it comes to bad news, she and my sister do not hesitate to spread the word. You, I mean, you have this family who wants to protect you for as long as they can.
Aaron: That's your family now, too.
Alison: That's right. I keep forgetting that. Sometimes, it's hard to really believe that we're actually married.
Aaron: Yeah? Even after that fantastic honeymoon? I don't know. Should I be insulted?
Alison: Stop! Please. That was the best honeymoon ever.
Aaron: Yeah, not bad for last-minute.
Alison: Not bad? I give you 48 hours of bliss, and I get not bad? I don't know. Should I be insulted?
Aaron: No way.
Alison: Oh! I got it!
Aaron: I should get it.
Alison: No, no. Okay.
Aaron: Hello? Lily. That's awesome. How does he look? Okay. Well, what can we do? Okay, we'll see you there. Okay. He's fine. He's got a few bumps, some scratches.
Alison: Oh, Aaron! That's amazing!
Aaron: Yeah. They're gonna send him to the hospital just to make sure 100% that he's okay. We got to tell Grandma and Faith the good news.
Alison: Of course! I can't wait to see him.
Meg: How can you not know of a way to get him out? You are the chief of the rescue squad! Do your job!
Fred: We need the bigger rig to handle the extra weight, and we have nowhere to anchor it.
Meg: Well, find a place!
Mike: We will. We will. You guys put the rig together, and I'll survey the hole.
Fred: We'll do the best we can.
Meg: Please! Paul? They're coming, Paul.
Barbara: Honey, Honey, Honey. Don't get yourself upset, all right? You have to remember the baby. Let me take you home, all right?
Meg: No, no, no! I am not leaving Paul in that hole!
Mike: Look, you need to go home and get some rest. I'll call you the minute we get Paul out.
Meg: I am not leaving my husband!
Mike: Paul, I need you to tell Meg that she should go home and get some rest. It's the best thing for her.
Paul: Meg, I never thought I'd say this, but maybe you should listen to Mike.
Meg: I don't want to leave you.
Paul: I know, but it's not about me. It's about the baby.
Meg: The baby's fine.
Paul: Meg, please. Just let someone take you home.
Meg: Promise me you will do everything you can to get him out of that hole.
Mike: I promise.
Meg: Paul, I love you.
Paul: I love you. I'll see you soon.
Meg: You better!
Barbara: Come on, Honey.
Paul: Mike, you still there?
Paul: Thanks for lying.
Vienna: My God. What are you doing?!
Bonnie: I'm trying to wake him up!
Vienna: He's cut. He's bleeding! He's gonna die! Help, somebody! Help!
Bonnie: Will you shut up?
Vienna: I'm trying to get help!
Bonnie: Haven't you figured out by now that nobody can hear us out here?
Vienna: Well, what do you have a better suggestion?
Vienna: Help! Somebody help! Help!
Bonnie: Oh, no.
Derek: What happened? Is he okay?
Bonnie: Oh, my gosh! What do you care?!
Derek: I brought him here, and then I heard the explosion, so I came back.
Bonnie: No. He is unconscious, and he needs a doctor.
Derek: Let's get him to my car.
Bonnie: No. Oh, no, no. We are not going anywhere with you.
Derek: Look, I don't blame you for not believing me, but, at this point, do you have another option?
Vienna: No. He's right.
Derek: Come on. We have to carry him. Grab his arm.
Vienna: Hurry up!
Derek: Ready? One, two, three.
Aaron: How's Ethan?
Lily: He's awake. In the ambulance, the Medics thought that he seemed pretty stable.
Aaron: He's a tough kid. He's a tough kid. He'll be fine.
Holden: Is Mama with you guys?
Aaron: No. She thought it'd be best to keep Faith at the farm. She figured you had a lot of stuff on your mind.
Alison: Is Ethan with the doctor now?
Chris: You guys can come in.
Lily: My baby. Are you okay?
Ethan: It hurts.
Lily: Oh, I'm sorry.
Chris: He was pretty dehydrated. I wanted to get his fluids up quickly. I have him on a mild sedative so he doesn't fidget too much. He should be sleeping a lot in the next couple days. But his vitals are strong. He's a tough little guy.
Holden: When can we take him home?
Chris: A couple of hours to replenish his fluids, then he can go.
Holden: Listen, I should call Mama and Faith and let them know he's okay.
Lily: No, it should be me. I'm the one that left him in the first place.
Holden: Lily, it's not your fault.
Lily: Maybe not, but it was my responsibility. Sweetie, I'm gonna go get your sister, and then I'll be back, okay?
Chris: Holden, can I go over a couple things with you?
Holden: Yeah, sure. See you, Buddy. I'll be right back, okay?
Aaron: Next time you go hiking by the farm, you let me know, okay, Buddy? And I'll go with you. Poor guy. He can't even keep his eyes open.
Alison: No. He isn't breathing! Chris! Chris, he isn't breathing! Talk about a wake up call.
Barbara: You need to climb into bed and get some sleep.
Meg: How can I sleep?
Barbara: You got to try, Meg.
Meg: Okay. Okay, I will, but you need to get back there.
Barbara: No. Mike said he would call us.
Meg: Mike doesn't care about Paul! No one does! You saw the rescue-squad guys. They were ready to pack it in. We need to make sure that they don't give up.
Barbara: Okay. If I go back, will you go to bed.
Meg: Yes. As long as there is someone there I can count on.
Meg: And the minute you know anything, please call me.
Barbara: I will. You sleep.
James: Hello, Meg. It's good to see you.
Meg: You're real. You're here.
James: Yes. I'm real, and I'm here. Look, I'm sorry that I woke you before in that dream business, and I'm also sorry that Paulís had to deceive you all this time.
Meg: You've seen Paul?
Meg: How long have you been here?
James: Well, ever since the problems with your development started.
Meg: That long? And Paul knew it?
James: Yes, but you were in a delicate situation. He didn't want to upset you, and he didn't want you to know how much trouble I've gotten him into.
Meg: So the money, the loan sharks, all that led up to it, that was your doing?
James: Yes. But it's almost over.
Meg: You better make sure nothing happens to him.
James: I can't do that, Meg.
Meg: Really? Well, who can?
Chris: Okay, okay, okay. Okay, Buddy. Just relax. Just relax.
Holden: How is he? Is he okay?
Chris: He's breathing normally right now. That's the main thing. His pulse is steady. Holden, I'm so sorry. There must have been some dirt lodged in his larynx. I should have caught it.
Holden: Are you sure he's gonna be all right?
Holden: Okay. Hi, Buddy. You're gonna be fine. It's a good thing your mommy wasn't here to see that.
Faith: Is he okay?
Lily: He's fine.
Emma: Oh, thank God.
Lily: I know.
Emma: Thank God.
Faith: When can I see Ethan? I want to apologize.
Lily: For what?
Faith: For not watching him like I should have been doing.
Lily: Listen to me. I never should have left you. You did your best. In fact, you were very responsible. None of this was your fault.
Faith: Can we not talk about this anymore?
Faith: So, when can I see him?
Lily: How about right now? Let's go.
Derek: I can't stay here.
Bonnie: What, do you think you can run? Look, I know who you are, and I'm not gonna let you get away with this.
Derek: Look, I don't blame you for hating me.
Bonnie: Oh, really?
Derek: And I'm sorry the way this all happened. To tell you the truth, I really like you.
Bonnie: Oh, well, next time, you know, find a better way to show it. You know what? There will not be a next time!
Derek: I never meant for you to get caught up in this. This wasn't your fault.
Bonnie: You're right. It was all yours.
Derek: I know. I know. And it might not mean anything now, but I never had a choice.
Mike: We're trying to find a way that we can anchor the rig so that we can both support Paulís weight and keep him clear of the sides. Any small disturbance can make things worse.
Barbara: What was that?
Mike: That was exactly what I was worried about. Paul, are you okay?
Paul: I'm fine. I just -- a bunch of stuff just fell again, that's all.
Mike: Okay, just hang in there. I'm gonna put your mom on.
Barbara: Paul, Honey?
Paul: Mom, I thought you took Meg home.
Barbara: I did. She made me come back to be with you.
Paul: Well, thanks for dropping by, but you got to go back and stay with Meg!
Barbara: I am not leaving you Paul. You're gonna be okay. You're gonna be all right.
Paul: I hate to break it to you, Mom, but I think this might be one situation that you're probably not gonna be able to buy my way out of.
Barbara: Mike promised that he was gonna get you out of here, and I believe him.
Paul: Might want to tell him to hurry up.
Meg: What can I possibly do to get Paul out of that hole?
James: You can't, but I can.
James: Well, let's just say it's gonna be a lot easier getting him out than it was getting him in.
Meg: Okay, then do it. What are you waiting for?
James: Well, you know, like everything in life, Meg, there's a price. And only you can pay it.
Alison: Chris, you saved his life.
Chris: I wouldn't have had to if I'd got the examination right the first time. I still don't know how I missed that.
Aaron: Listen, it's over. Alison's right. My family owes you a lot.
Chris: Just doing my job, but thanks.
Holden: Yeah, it was a little scary. He stopped breathing.
Lily: Oh, my God.
Holden: But he's gonna be fine. Chris wants to keep him a little while longer just to make sure.
Faith: I am so glad you're okay. I was very worried about you, and I promise, I'm never gonna call you annoying again.
Henry: My head feels like someone dropped a piano on it.
Vienna: I'm just glad you're all right. You saved my life.
Bonnie: Mine too.
Henry: Hey. Question -- how did you two manage to survive without killing one another?
Bonnie: We have no idea what you're talking about, do we, Vienna?
Henry: Right. So, what did you do? Did you spend the night on opposite sides of the warehouse, or what?
Vienna: No, we're adults, Henry. We would never do that.
Vienna: So, is Derek out there?
Bonnie: No, he's gone.
Henry: He was here?
Vienna: Well, he drove us here. You were unconscious, but he probably saved your life.
Bonnie: Okay, look. Let's not give him a medal. He's the one who got us in danger in the first place, but I just completely misjudged him.
Henry: Bonnie, you couldn't know.
Bonnie: No, I should have. I've spent enough time with criminals.
Henry: I don't want to defend the guy, but I don't think he had much of a choice.
Bonnie: That's what he said.
Henry: He was just doing what Stenbeck asked him to do. James Stenbeck.
Bonnie: James Stenbeck?
Bonnie: That guy's been in prison for years, and everyone is always blaming everything on him.
Henry: For good reason, because James told me himself.
Bonnie: You are telling me that you saw him?
Henry: That's right.
Vienna: Who is this guy?
Bonnie: Paul Ryanís degenerate father, who's supposed to be locked up forever.
Henry: Well, he's out.
Vienna: Why would he want to kidnap us?
Henry: Because he doesn't want anyone to know he's here, Sweetheart. And when I saw him, he had to shut me up. And when you two tried to find me, he had to shut you up, as well.
Bonnie: So, why is he back?
Henry: He didn't tell me. Whatever he's after, he's not gonna stop until he gets it.
Meg: You want my baby?
James: I need an heir.
Meg: What about Paul?
James: Paul is worthless. Your child is my only hope for the Stenbeck future.
Meg: You're insane.
James: Don't you insult me! I'm giving you a chance to save Paulís life, now sign this.
Meg: And if I don't sign it, what? You're just gonna let him die?
James: That's right.
Meg: He's your son! Don't you care about him at all?
James: Not really, no. Do you?
Meg: Of course I do!
James: Good, good. That's very good. Then you sign this document, I'll save Paul, and your child will inherit an empire.
Barbara: They're setting up now! It won't be long!
Paul: No, totally not.
Derek: Is it off?
Paul: How did you get in here?
Derek: I followed your father's directions.
Paul: My father?
Derek: Yeah, he sent me to get you out.
Derek: There's a tunnel.
Paul: Oh, of course. There's a tunnel that, let me guess, only he knows about.
Derek: Yeah, he dug it.
Paul: So, all of this -- all of this, he set all this up, and you, you're a part of it?
Derek: Yeah, from the beginning.
Derek: Let's just say I'm paying off old debts.
Paul: But why would -- go through all of this for an empty chest?!
Derek: I don't know. He doesn't confide in me. He tells me what to do, and I do it.
Paul: I'm gonna kill him.
Derek: Yeah, well, that's not my problem.
Paul: No, but this is.
Mike: Will that hold his weight?
Fred: It should.
Mike: Tell him we'll be ready in five minutes.
Barbara: What's happening? Paul?! Paul, can you hear me?! Paul?! You've got to do something!
Fred: I'm sorry. There's no way anyone could have survived that. He's gone.
Paul: Where are you? Where are you?! Meg? Meg? Meg?! What did you do to her, James? I'll kill you. I swear to God, I'll kill you.
