 Rick: Okay, what about Eric?

 Bridget: He was with them.

 Rick: Is he hurt?

 Bridget: No, no, no, he's in the police car. He's okay.

 Rick: What was Amber doing on the edge of a cliff arguing with Deacon? This doesn't make any sense.

 Bridget: Well, they should be here soon.

 Rick: Okay, now, the Lieutenant said she fell. Do they know how bad she is?

 Bridget: They're trying to contact an orthopedic surgeon.

 Rick: A surgeon? Oh, my god.

 Bridget: Rick, I think you need to prepare yourself. Her injuries sounded pretty severe.

            **********************************************************************************************

 Massimo: A nightcap? For the lady.

 Jackie: Does this mean that the evening's over?

 Massimo: Oh, no, as a matter of fact, we could continue our conversation in the other room if you'd like.

[Glasses clinking]

 Jackie: I see, so you do want to keep on -- talking.

 Massimo: See, you haven't answered my question. Everything is ready. All I need is a date.

 Jackie: Massimo, honestly, I mean, when you say that, I just -- I just imagine an army out there of caterers and florists waiting for you to sound the alarm.

 Massimo: I have them circling the block in a moving van.

 Jackie: I'm not stalling. Really, I'm not. I promise you. I have just so enjoyed being courted. A girl needs that, you know.

[Phone rings]

 Massimo: Oh. Excuse me.

[Phone rings] Marone.

 Oscar: Massimo. Hey, hey. How's my favorite uncle?

 Massimo: Oscar?

 Oscar: Yes, it's been a long time. How you been?

 Massimo: Spare me the pleasantries, Oscar. What do you want?

                        **********************************************************************************

 Bridget: All right, tell me again what Lieutenant Baker said.

 Rick: They -- they found her in Furnace Creek. There was a car chase, they ended up in the desert and apparently Lieutenant Baker and Deacon -- they were trying to reason with her --

 Receptionist: Emergency.

 Rick: -- And that's when she slipped and fell.

 Receptionist: Thank you.

 Bridget: Oh, god.

 Rick: I know.

 Receptionist: She's here.

 Bridget: Okay.

 Medic: Pupils are equal and reactive, patient is responsive. There's no sign of head trauma. Possible fractures of the lower ribs and the left femoral shaft.

 Dr. Cooper: Pulses are strong. No sign of arterial bleeding.

 Medic: Multiple lacerations and hematomas, possible internal injuries.

 Rick: Amber? Amber?

 Bridget: How is she?

 Rick: Honey, are you okay?

 Dr. Cooper: We have to get her to x-ray.

 Rick: The nurse mentioned something about surgery.

 Dr. Cooper: We'll let you know after we examine her.

 Amber: Rick?

 Rick: Yeah. Amber, honey, I'm here. I'm here.

 Dr. Cooper: Let's go.

 Nurse: Doctor, shall I order radiology?

 Dr. Cooper: Yeah, get her prepped for a C.A.T. Scan.

 Little Eric: Daddy.

 Rick: Oh, buddy. Oh, buddy. Oh, come here. Thank god you're okay. Thank god. What happened, pal? What happened?

 Little Eric: Mommy's hurt.

 Rick: Yeah, yeah, she is, I know. But she's gonna be okay, all right?

 Little Eric: She fell.

 Rick: Yeah, and I know she looks really scary right now, but I promise she's gonna be all right. Everything's gonna be just fine. You guys are safe now. You're safe.

 Rick: What -- what happened out there?

 Deacon: Your wife tried to outrun the cops, Rick.

 Rick: I was asking the lieutenant.

 Deacon: Hey, buddy, I tried to stop her, all right?

 Rick: Did he do this?

 Bridget: Eric, you know what? The grown-ups need to talk. Why don't we -- why don't we find a towel and clean up your face a little bit? Yeah?

 Lieutenant baker: Deacon and I were trying to talk to Amber. She got agitated and just lost her footing.

 Rick: Right, right, Eric said that they were arguing.

 Deacon: Rick, she dragged my kid to the edge of a cliff.

 Rick: Oh, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Eric did not see her fall?

 Lieutenant Baker: No, no, no, no. He heard her yell, but he didn't see anything.

 Rick: Yeah, but he rode over here with you in the ambulance. I mean, he had to see her.

 Deacon: I tried to distract him from most of the worst of it.

 Rick: Yeah, yeah, well, none of this would have happened if it wasn't for you. They'd be home tonight.

 Deacon: Well, you know what? That's a pretty easy call to make from the cheap seats, pal. I'm not the one who has a wife that went psycho and ran off with my kid.

 Rick: You had to call the police, didn't you? I could have convinced her to come home. But you just made the situation worse. Now she's in the hospital and Eric is terrified.

 Deacon: Guess what? So was I. I was terrified, too. Your wife almost drove the car off a cliff.

 Macy: Eric! You're all right!

 Little Eric: Cuckoo!

 Macy: Oh. Oh, baby, oh, I was so worried about you.

                        **************************************************************************************

 Jackie: Who is it?

 Massimo: My cousin's son, Oscar.

 Oscar: Listen, Mass, I know it's late --

 Massimo: Yeah, not that it makes any difference to you in Las Vegas.

 Oscar: Oh, that's a funny thing, actually. I'm in L.A. Yeah, me and Paolo came down here, buddy of mine, thought we could stop by, you know?

 Massimo: I'm afraid not.

 Oscar: Come on, I thought we could talk. Catch up.

 Massimo: Look, I'm sorry, I cannot help you.

 Oscar: You haven't even heard what's going on.

 Massimo: If it has anything to do with that cheesy casino of yours, I do not want to know. Listen --

 Paolo: Boss, hurry up. We gotta get out of here.

 Oscar: Okay, I don't have time to explain this right now, all right?

 Massimo: No, of course not. You're in trouble, right?

 Oscar: Not trouble. Come on. It's just a little misunderstanding. I'm sure I can clear it up. I just need a little --

 Massimo: Listen, Oscar, we went through this once before, okay? Now, get it through your skull that I run a legitimate business and I cannot get mixed up in your problems or your business, all right? This is something you're gonna have to handle yourself. Good-bye, Oscar.

 Oscar: No, wait, wait, wait, wait --

Jackie:  What did he want?

 Massimo: I don't know. But if it involves my cousin -- it can't be good.

                        ***************************************************************************************

[Monitor beeping]

 Bridget: The nurse said we could come in.

 Rick: How is she?

 Dr. Cooper: Well, we're waiting on her x-rays, but at this point, we've ruled out any internal injuries.

 Rick: So she's okay?

 Dr. Cooper: Well, she's not in imminent danger, no. But her injuries are severe. Cracked ribs, multiple cuts and bruises. It's gonna take her a while to recover.

 Rick: Well, I mean, has she been awake? Can I -- can I talk to her?

 Dr. Cooper: Sure. She's been asking for you.

                        ***********************************************************************************

 Macy: Baby, I'm so glad you're back.

 Deacon: Yeah, so am I.

 Macy: Are you -- are you hurt?

 Deacon: No, no, no, I'm okay. I'm okay. We both are.

 Macy: What happened? What in the world was she doing?

 Deacon: Macy, you know, listen, we got him back. That's the most important thing. I just hope Amber's gonna be all right.

 Macy: Where's Lieutenant Baker?

 Deacon: He left.

 Macy: What about Amber?

 Deacon: Listen, come on, he can follow up in the morning. She's not going anywhere.

 Macy: Eric, honey, we're gonna be right over here by the elevator, okay? Don't -- don't go anywhere.

 Little Eric: Okay.

 Macy: Deacon -- Deacon, you are going to press charges, aren't you?

 Deacon: Macy, all I'm gonna do right now is just go home.

 Macy: Amber kidnapped your son, and she could do it again.

 Deacon: You know what? She's not gonna be doing much of anything for a very long time.

 Macy: I know. And I'm sorry she's hurt. But we can't let this go. The Forresters wouldn't. Let me tell you, if you pulled a stunt like this, they'd have their lawyers all over you. They'd have an armed guard outside your hospital room. We've got to do something.

 Deacon: Look, I just don't want him getting caught up in the middle of this.

 Macy: He won't be. But if this fiasco proves anything, it's that he belongs with us.

                        **********************************************************************************

 Bridget: So Amber's coherent?

 Dr. Cooper: Well, she may be a little groggy. We had to give her something for the pain.

 Rick: Wait, can you do that? She's a recovering addict.

 Dr. Cooper: Well, she'll only be given the meds while she's in the hospital. There's no significant danger of a relapse.

 Rick: Is she in a lot of pain?

 Dr. Cooper: Well, like I said, her injuries are substantial.

 Bridget: But all in all, she got lucky.

 Rick: Okay, thank you, doctor.

 Dr. Cooper: I'll be back to check on her a little later.

 Bridget: I'm gonna wait for you outside, okay?

 Amber: Rick?

 Rick: Hey.

 Amber: Where's Eric?

 Rick: He's outside.

 Amber: Is he okay?

 Rick: He's fine. The lieutenant told me everything that you did, Amber. You could have died.

 Amber: I'm sorry.

 Rick: You can explain everything that happened later, okay? Look, you just get some sleep right now. I'll be back in a little while.

                        ********************************************************************************************

 Jackie: Mm. That was delicious. What a perfect way to end the day.

 Massimo: Mm-hmm. You set a date for our wedding and we can do this every night for the rest of our lives.

 Jackie: That might get a bit tedious. Don't you think?

 Massimo: Do you?

 Jackie: Why just settle for brandy when there are so many other flavors?

 Massimo: I hope you're not speaking metaphorically.

 Jackie: Of course not. Believe me, you're all I need to get intoxicated.

[Phone rings]

Jackie: Massimo.

 Massimo: Ignore it.

 Jackie: But you know what?

 Massimo: What?

 Jackie: It could be your cousin.

 Massimo: Well, all the more reason why I don't want to answer it.

 Jackie: But he's your family.

 Massimo: He's a ne'er-do-well, just like his father. Can you believe it? A cheesy gambling joint. Oh, god, he thinks he's gonna be the next Steve Wynn.

 Jackie: And you don't?

 Massimo: No, no. I don't know. I mean, he's got the drive and he's got the whole brainpower, I guess, but just like his father, strictly small-time. And this miserable casino there is just like a rat trap.

 Jackie: Oh, Massimo, please.

 Massimo: All right, all right, all right. Yes?

                        ***************************************************************************************

 Amber: Rick?

 Macy: No. What were you thinking?

 Amber: I need to rest.

 Macy: Do you have any idea what you did to that little boy, Amber? Seeing you hauled out of that canyon on a gurney? He was terrified. I don't blame him, with a mother like you.

 Amber: I was trying to save him.

 Macy: From what? From a comfortable home at the beach with two parents who love him?

 Amber: You can't take him away.

 Macy: Well, that's not up to me. And it never was. You forced that court hearing. You asked for the hearing. You put Eric's future in the hands of that judge and he decided he'd be better off with us. And after seeing what you did tonight, I'm more sure than ever. He did the right thing.

                        **************************************************************************************

 Deacon: Listen, hang on.

 Rick: You know what, Deacon? I don't want to get into this right now.

 Deacon: Oh, no, we're definitely gonna get into this right now.

 Rick: I get it, okay? You're taking Eric home tonight. You don't have to tell me what's what.

 Deacon: Hey, I'm not the one that blew my top out there. Your wife went completely postal. Now she's lying in a hospital bed and my kid's probably gonna need therapy for the next 50 years. Look, I don't think you understand how lucky we were to get Eric away from her. Rick, she lost it out there. And I'm sure she's got a million excuses and I'm sure you blame me, but the fact of the matter is, man, I can't ignore this. You know what? Neither should you. You think she's bad off right now? This could have ended so much worse. I'm telling you, she is completely out of control. You've got to open your eyes to this. I'm gonna take my kid in there to say good-bye to her and then we're leaving. You want to make plans to visit him? You call my attorney.

 Bridget: Rick -- hey, don't let him get to you, okay?

 Rick: It's not him. It's Amber. What she did tonight. Eric could have just as easily been in that hospital bed.

                        ************************************************************************************************

 Oscar: Mass, please listen to me -- please don't hang up.

 Massimo: It's you again, huh?

 Oscar: Yeah, look, I need your help, all right? It's an emergency.

 Massimo: Look, I told you, you're gonna have to handle this on your own.

 Oscar: Well, I know, but you see, they're following us. I thought we lost them, but I think -- is that them?

 Massimo: Oscar, I cannot get involved in your business. Do you understand me?

 Oscar: Look, I know that. You can't get involved in my business. But here's the thing. I'm begging you, okay?

 Paolo: Boss, we gotta go.

 Oscar: I'm coming.

[Gun shot]

 Massimo: Whoa, what was that? Oscar?

[Gun shots] Oscar? What the hell is going on, Oscar? Those were gunshots.

Massimo: Oscar -- Oscar, answer me. Are you all right?

                        ****************************************************************************************

 Amber: The judge, he was wrong. He didn't know -- he didn't know how much I love Eric.

 Macy: Well, you sure proved that tonight.

 Amber: I had no choice.

 Macy: Amber, you abducted that little boy. You threw him in the back of your car and you ran with him. You put his life in danger.

 Amber: I can't lose Eric.

 Macy: Amber, I know. I know what you're feeling. I know because I felt it, too. For the first time in my life, I realized what it was like to be a parent, thinking something's happened to your child, not knowing where he is. I was terrified.

 Amber: He is not your child. Stop talking like that. He's not yours.

 Deacon: There she is.

 Amber: Hi, baby.

 Deacon: See, mommy's okay.

 Amber: I'm gonna be fine, sweetheart.

 Deacon: Yeah, she just -- she just took a bad fall, that's all.

 Amber: Yeah, like remember what happened to Tommy last summer? Remember when he fell off his jungle gym.

 Deacon: You remember that? Okay. Well, it's getting late. We're gonna -- we're gonna take off.

 Amber: I'll see you soon, okay? I love you, baby.

 Little Eric: I love you, too.

 Amber: You know how much mommy loves you?

 Little Eric: All the world and then some.

 Amber: Yeah. And how long will I love you?

 Little Eric: Forever and a day.

 Amber: That's right. That's right. Now you go and you sleep tight. And the doctors will take really good care of mommy, okay?

 Deacon: Okay, we're gonna get out of here. Listen, just try and -- try and relax, Amber. Feel better, okay? Want to say good-bye.

 Little Eric: Good-bye, mommy.

 Amber: Bye, baby.

 Macy: Amber, this really is good-bye. Unless you get it together, I am going to make sure you don't get anywhere near that boy.

 Amber: Come here.

 Macy: What?

 Amber: Come here, I just want to tell you something. Come here.

 Macy: What?

 Amber: You think you can keep me away from my son? I'm gonna get him back.

 Macy: You're nuts. You're crazy.
