Chad: How do I make you understand? I don't want you anymore. You know it's over, yet you come knocking on my door at 1:00 a.m. on new year's day to--

Abigail: I came here to tell you that my son is sick. Our son, Chad.

Chad: Wh--

Abigail: Yeah, that's right. You're the father, not Ben.

Chad: That--I'm--I'm what?

Abigail: Don't do that. Don't act like you don't know it's possible. You know that it is.

Chad: Abigail, this is pathetic. You had a paternity test. You told me yourself that I wasn't your baby's father. This is beneath you.

Abigail: What is?

Chad: Lying about something this important just so you can get me back.


Kayla: Okay, let's go.

Jennifer: Kayla.

Kayla: Vitals?

Heart rate 90, respiration's 20, BP. 136 over 92. She was wearing her seatbelt, and the front and side airbags deployed.

Kayla: Did she lose consciousness?

Says not.

Jennifer: I saw headlights... spinning on black ice--

Kayla: It's okay, it's okay. Jennifer, you're gonna be all right.

Jennifer: Okay.

Fynn: Kayla! Over here!

Kayla: Don't worry, okay? We're gonna take good care of you.

Jennifer: Okay.

Kayla: All right.

Fynn: Blunt force trauma to the chest, and it's bad. I want a chest X-ray, 12-lead EKG, and a thoracic ultrasound on him.

Nicole: Our fashion show tonight was a freaking triumph.

Kate: Well, according to your standards, I suppose it was.

Nicole: Is that fun for you? Do you think putting us down keeps you in the driver's seat? Let me tell you something, woman, you are wrong. Tonight was a dream come true for us, and we are not gonna let you or anyone else turn it into a nightmare.

Kayla: Oh, my God. Eric.

He's cyanotic.

Kayla: How are his lung sounds?

Markedly diminished on the left-hand side. It's a tension pneumothorax.

Kayla: Set me up for a chest tube.

Marlena: Whew!

John: I'm telling you, fashion shows are boring enough, but if I'd have known Ava Vitali was gonna be there...

Marlena: You know what? You handled Ava and the fashion show beautifully.

John: I did?

Marlena: You did. I was proud of you. And now you can put all that behind you, because this is officially a new year. A brand new year. Especially a new year for the two of us.

Kayla: Let's get him to room two.

Fynn: I'll get the last one. Daniel. Was he breathing when you got to him?


Victor: Well, I took a taste of this stuff in the kitchen. I don't know how you drink it.

Maggie: [Laughs] I like what it does for me.

Victor: Well, I suppose it toasts just as well as champagne does.

Maggie: Another toast?

Victor: To the love of my life... a beautiful, loving wife, world-class mother.

Fynn: Fixed and dilated.

Do you know Dr. Jonas?

Fynn: He's an old friend.

Good surgeon.

Fynn: One of the best.

[Solemn music]

Gabi: All I've ever done is print work. I was really scared.

JJ: No, you were a natural. You killed it. Rocked the house.

Gabi: Don't go overboard.

JJ: I'm not. No, seriously, when you walked out in that dress, all I was thinking to myself was, "when the show's over, I'm walking out with her."

Abigail: Do you really think that I am that pathetic? That I would lie about my son being sick?

Chad: Oh, come on.

Abigail: Listen to me. I had to wake him up to feed him this morning. He would barely nurse at all. He was pale and he was listless, and those are all signs of aplastic anemia, which is something I had when I was a baby.

Chad: So, he had a rotten morning. You want me to believe he has aplastic anemia? You can't use a kid like that, Abigail.

Abigail: Are you kidding me? Do you really think that I am that desperate? You think that I would-- I would invent some illness about my son just to try to get you back? I'm here because my son--our son's life might depend on it.

Chad: Don't--

Abigail: Yeah, Chad, our son. So why don't you step up? Because your son needs you.

Maggie: I don't think I can drink to that.

Victor: Why not?

Maggie: I think you have an ulterior motive.

Victor: Me?

Maggie: I know that you know it's somewhat uncomfortable for me, having Caroline here.

Victor: But you were so decent about it when I told you I had to protect her.

Maggie: And you were right. Caroline does need protecting, and she's Bo's mother, so how could I not be decent?

Victor: I just want you to know, that you're the one I think of when I go to sleep at night, and you're the one I think of when I get up in the morning. How a cantankerous old man like me got a lady like you, I'll never know, but here we are at the dawn of a new year, and I'm looking forward to spending it all with you. You're my inspiration.


Maggie: Aw. Oh...

Kayla: I saw you with Daniel Jonas earlier. How bad is it?

Fynn: As bad as it gets.

Vanilla yogurt.

Chad: You're baby was premature. You knew he was gonna have problems.

Abigail: Excuse me?

Chad: What, I'm just supposed to buy all of this? Without a shred of medical evidence?

Abigail: No, Chad! Why don't you come to the hospital yourself, okay? Will that make you feel better? Come and look at all the blood work, the charts. You can see everything--

Chad: Okay, what is that gonna prove? Even if he has this, uh, anemia thing, he got it from you!

Abigail: We liked at Ben's blood also just to make sure that there was nothing on his side. And when the test results came back, they showed that Ben and Thomas are not genetically related. That is a fact, Chad. It is also a fact that you are the only other man I slept with, so unless you want to accuse me of lying about that also...

Chad: No.

Abigail: Your son needs you. And you know what? To tell you the truth, I could really use your support also. What happened to you? You used to talk about us being a family, the three of us-- you, me, and Thomas.

Gabi: So you thought we'd be leaving together? You're very sure of yourself, aren't you?

JJ: No, no, no. I didn't mean--

Gabi: I'm kidding. I'm kidding. I'm kidding. Listen, um, the models are having a little get-together after-show party, and I was hoping you'd want to come with me.

JJ: To a party with you and a room full of models? [Sighs] I'm sorry. I just--I got some other plans. I'm kidding.

Gabi: Okay.

JJ: Just let me talk to my mom, yeah? She worries.

Gabi: That's very sweet of you. So are you.

JJ: Hey, mom. Um, it's me. Uh, I'm just with Gabi right now and we're gonna be going to this party for a little while. Um, but if you're still up, just don't worry.

Gabi: So we should get going.

JJ: Yeah, but there's just something I've been wanting to do first. Something that I've actually been wanting to do all night.

Gabi: What's that?

Kate: I admit that I was pretty tough on both of you. I tried speaking as the voice of the company and I suppose that could have seemed like I was taking all the credit.

Nicole: There are three voices in this company.

Theresa: And you did take all the credit.

Kate: And if the evening had been a disaster, I would have taken responsibility for that as well.

Theresa: Oh, yeah? Well, we only have your word on that.

Kate: I wouldn't have liked it, I hate admitting failure, but I would have done it. Because the truth is... I'm terrified of failure.

Nicole: So you covered by being an arrogant know-it-all?

Kate: Pretty much.

Nicole: Hmm. We're scared too, Kate. with us.

[Cell phone rings]

[Beep beep]

Mmm. What's that? Is that your mom calling you back, JJ? [Laughs]

[Cell phone rings]

Marlena: Oh...


John: Who'd be calling at this hour?

[Phone rings]


JJ: Hello?

[Ominous music]

Nicole: Hello?

Nicole: Excuse me. I-I got a message.

Theresa: So did I.

Nicole: My fiancé was in a car accident--Dr. Jonas. Dr. Daniel Jonas.

Theresa: And Brady black-- do you know where he is?

He's in exam room four, but he's unconscious, so you'll have to--

Nicole: Uh...Dr. Jonas was in the same car as Brady. Which room is he in?

[Rapid beeping]

Nicole: Wait--wait, can y--

[Rapid beeping continues]

[Steady beeping]

Fynn: His heart is damaged. Could be a tamponade.

Should I prep him for the OR.?

Fynn: We'll have to stabilize him first. I may have to punch the pericardial cavity to aspirate the fluid in there.

Kayla: He's still wheezing. The chest tube should have eliminated that.

His legs and ankles are swollen.

Kayla: His heartbeat is still irregular--can I see that blood workup again? Thanks. Why don't we order an echocardiogram. Tell them it's stat, all right? Thank you.

[Somber music]

Marlena: Nurse! We got a call about our sons.

John: Brady black and Eric Brady.

Marlena: There was an accident.

John: How are they? Where--where are they?

You'll have to speak with the doctors. Mr. Brady's in room two, and your son is in room four.

John: Doc...gonna have to split up on this.

Marlena: I'll be okay. You go ahead. Go in to Brady--go, go, go!

Nicole: Excuse me. Can-- oh--

Victor: I need information on Brady black and Daniel Jonas.

Mr. Black is in room four, but his father just arrived.

Nicole: They won't tell me anything about Daniel.

Victory: Well, they'll tell me.

Nicole: I don't understand--

Fynn: I'll tell you.

Nicole: Fynn! I-I've been going crazy! Nobody will tell me anything!

Maggie: How's my son doing?

Fynn: Daniel suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Nicole: Oh, my God.

Maggie: What?

Victor: Is he in surgery?

Fynn: His EEG confirms it's too late for that.

Nicole: Too late?

Victor: Why?

Maggie: What?

Fynn: I'm so sorry I have to tell you this... but Daniel suffered brain death.

Maggie: Oh! No! [Sobbing] No! No!

[Both sobbing]

[Somber music]

[Steady beeping]

Chad: I want you to take this story you made up, and I want you to get out!

Abigail: Who are you? Who is this? Who is this person talking to me? This isn't you!

Chad: Then who the hell is it?

Abigail: I don't know. Honestly, Chad, I'm not sure, because the Chad that I know would--would drop everything in a second if I told you my son were sick. In a second! The Chad I know would never act like this. I remember the look on your face when you told me that you... loved me, Chad. I remember the man who came to save me, came to save my son. Who sat here and told me a stupid bedtime story just to help me fall asleep at night. That is who you are. Chad, that is the real you, and who I'm looking at now has to be something else, has to be...I don't know. André's creation of you or something.

[Somber music]

Chad: No! This is what you do! [Breathing hard] Stop trying to use me. Get out!

Abigail: I'm not--

Chad: Get out!

Abigail: No!

Chad: Get out, get out!

Abigail: Stop, Chad, no!

Chad: Get out!

Abigail: No, please, just--

Chad: Get out!

Abigail: Listen to me! Stop it! I don't know how you live with yourself! Chad, no, Chad--

Chad: Get out!

Abigail: Stop it! [Gasping]

[Somber music]

[Chad wheezing]

Nicole: I don't--I don't understand, I mean, if his... if his heart is beating, then how can he be--

Fynn: The heart has A... it has a pacemaker independent of the brain. It's getting oxygen because of a respirator.

Nicole: Okay, then--then if he's on a respirator, doesn't that mean there's some--some hope?

Fynn: He's on a respirator because...he's an organ donor.

[Nicole sobs]

Nicole: This can't be. It just--it--it can't be. Not Daniel, not Daniel. And I wanna see him. I wanna see him.

Fynn: Why don't you take a little time?

Nicole: No, please, I want to--please let me see him.

Fynn: He's in room one.

[Women sobbing]

Fynn: Daniel's been my friend forever. I can't tell you how sorry I am.

Victor: Come with me.

Maggie: Where are we going?

Victor: Someplace where you can sit down and have some privacy.

[Maggie sobbing]

Victor: Oh, he's not coming back!

[Murmuring, crying]

Marlena: [Whispers] Eric. How could this happen?

Kayla: He suffered a collapsed lung, and I'm waiting on the results of an echocardiogram.

Marlena: Well, is there something wrong with his heart?

Kayla: I have to ask you-- do you remember him ever having an upper respiratory infection?

Marlena: Uh...s-sure, uh... yeah, sometimes that would-- that would happen in the winter. Does it have something to do with this?

Kayla: I don't know yet. Maybe not.

Theresa: I... listen, you just need to keep fighting, okay? I, um...I talked to your doctor... and he's trying to stay positive. But he's not making any promises and, um... [Sniffles] Listen, I worked here long enough to know what that means.'re gonna--you're gonna have to do your part, okay? I mean, 'cause Tate and I... we need you. We need you, Brady, and we can't lose you, okay? [Sniffles] Oh, God.

[Soft clicking, beeping]

[Monitors continue beeping]

[Machines whirring]

[Somber music]

Nicole: [Crying] Your hand is still warm. Okay, can you just do me a favor? Could you tell me I'm having a bad dream? 'Cause I think something like this... they happen to other people, they don't... happen to someone like you. Around here you're everyone's rock. The guy everyone counts on. Especially me. You and I--we work things out. And we were gonna have it all so don't you tell me it's gone now. [Sobbing] Baby... don't tell me you're gone. Please. Especially when I can still hold your hand. I can hold your hand, baby. [Sobbing] How am I gonna live without you? I can't. I can't. I love you so much.

Jennifer: Thank you.

JJ: Of course, mom. Is--is there anything else I can do?

Jennifer: You can tell me what happened. I just--I remember-- I remember headlights then... I remember something hitting...

JJ: I know, mom.

Jennifer: Me.

JJ: I don't know anything. As soon as the nurse called me, I cam straight here.

Jennifer: Okay.

JJ: All right, I'm gonna call Abigail and let her-- let her know that you're gonna be okay.

Jennifer: No. No. I don't think you should do that.

JJ: What are you talking about?

Jennifer: I remember what I was doing.

JJ: Okay.

Jennifer: I was going home to get things for Thomas.

JJ: What things?

Jennifer: He's here at the hospital. He may have to spend the night.

JJ: What's wrong with him?

Jennifer: He got sick this morning and Abigail just got really scared so he's here under observation. He was fine when I left, but... now I don't know. He's in pediatrics. Can you go check on him ad make sure?

JJ: Mom, of course. Absolutely. Okay? But don't you think I should call Abigail and let her know that that you can't be with Thomas?

Jennifer: No. No. No. You can't because she's with Chad right now.

JJ: What is she doing with Chad?

Jennifer: When they were doing test to figure out what was wrong with Thomas they did genetic testing on your sister... and then they had a unit of blood from Ben... and... the results confirmed that Ben is not Thomas' father.

JJ: Oh, my God.

Jennifer: And then Abigail told me that she and Chad--

JJ: I get it.

Jennifer: And she needed to tell him tonight, so, I don't know, they might be here at the hospital.

JJ: Okay. I'm gonna go find her. Okay? She needs to know about your accident. I am so glad that you're gonna be okay.

Jennifer: I love you, baby.

JJ: Love you too.

[Cell phone ringing]

[Cell phone beeps]

Abigail: Hi, JJ, what's going on?

JJ: I'm at the hospital.

Abigail: What's wrong? Is everything okay with Thomas?

JJ: Um... yeah, I think so, um...

Abigail: And mom's with him now?

JJ: No, um... I called you because, um... something's happened.

Roman: What did Kayla say?

Marlena: Oh, he has a collapsed lung. She ordered an echocardiogram. She wouldn't say why. She asked me if he'd had an upper respiratory infection. I just--I don't know what that means. I don't even know how this thing happened.

Roman: I do. There was a three-car accident on the bypass. Eric's car was, uh... it was coming at Jennifer in the wrong lane. Jennifer's car hit a patch of black ice and she went into a skid.

Marlena: Well, then his car must have skid too.

Roman: No. He was driving drunk.

Marlena: No. No. No.

Victor: How's he doing?

John: Well, the doctor said that he's holding his own.

Victor: Whatever the hell that means.

John: He also said that Brady suffered blunt force trauma to the chest and his-- his heart's been badly damaged.

Theresa: God.

Victor: Well, he's young, strong, healthy.

John: Yeah, that's a fact. So right now all we can do-- we'll just sit tight, we'll wait until they can tell us more.

Theresa: Where's Maggie? Oh, God, I'm sorry. I--I don't know what I'm saying. She must be with Daniel. [Sighs]

John: How's he doing?

Victor: Daniel my, uh-- my godson who was like a son to me-- I'm afraid didn't make it.

[Machines whirring]

[Monitors beeping]

Nicole: [Crying]

[Nicole and Maggie crying]

Maggie: [Sobbing]

Abigail: Are you sure that mom's okay?

JJ: They still have to do, um, some more tests and stuff, um, on her, but she seems okay to me.

Abigail: Okay. I love you, JJ.

JJ: I love you too.

[Dramatic music]

Chad: La famiglia.

Kate: Excuse me. Um, two friends of mine were admitted here tonight. They were in a car accident and I was wondering if you could tell me their condition. Daniel Jonas and Brady black.

[Heart monitor beeping]

[Gentle music]

Victor: Maggie?

Maggie: Is Brady all right?

Victor: It's touch and go. Too damn hard to get a straight answer around here.

Maggie: Not in every case.

Victor: I'm sorry. That was insensitive of me.

Maggie: [Sobs] It's all right.

Victor: I came by to say good-bye.

Maggie: [Sighs] I'll go, and I'll let you do that alone.

Victor: No, please, you stay. We both love him. We're in this together.

[Maggie sniffles]

[Nicole sniffles]

Daniel: I know I just got done talking to you a couple minutes ago, but I heard this song on the radio, and I thought it would be perfect for our first dance. Of course, it just ended. Well, I guess that just gives me an excuse to tell you again how proud I am of you, Nicole, always. Always. Tonight you just... [Sighs] I love you so much. So hurry back. I cannot wait to celebrate with you, snuggle.

[Nicole crying]

[Somber music]

[Soft music]

[Marlena crying]

[Maggie crying]

[Nicole sighs]

[Nicole sniffling]

Nicole: Baby. [Sobbing] Baby.

[Knocking on door]

Kayla: Um, I'm sorry to bother you so soon. I--we wouldn't. It's just, this is important.

Victor: What is?

Fynn: Brady's heart-- I'm afraid it's not going to recover from the damage suffered in the crash.

Maggie: Oh, no. He isn't going to--

Fynn: He can survive this but only if he has a heart transplant.

Maggie: Oh, my God. [Crying]

Fynn: And I'm afraid there's more.

Victor: More?

Kayla: Um... when we were examining Eric tonight, we discovered that he has an infection of his heart.

Victor: Because of the accident?

Kayla: No. He's probably had it for a while, not even knowing he had it.

Fynn: That's how it happens in young healthy people.

Kayla: Yeah, it often follows an upper respiratory infection or Lyme disease.

Maggie: So what does it do?

Kayla: It causes inflammation and damage to the heart muscle, which is what caused Eric to go into heart failure.

Fynn: Both men need donor hearts as soon as possible.

Victor: I'll get on the phone. I'll throw some money around.

Kayla: Hear me out first, and then you can do that. We're both here because, um, we discovered that both Eric and Brady are compatible with Daniel's blood type.

Maggie: [Crying] You want to give one of them Daniel's heart?

Fynn: Given the nature of the situation, I think we can bypass the donor registry.

[Maggie sobbing]

Fynn: I'm so sorry.

Kayla: I wouldn't ask you to deal with this. I know it's so soon. I know that Brady and Eric are dear to both of you and...

Maggie: Yes, they're Daniel's two best friends. But if I agree... which one gets my son's heart?

Kayla: I'm afraid it's up to you.

[Maggie sobbing]
