JR goes to see
Babe goes to see Di/Dixie when she knows JR is gone. Di/Dixie asks Babe, why is she there? Babe replies that she’s been hearing a lot about what a great mother Di/Dixie is, and she knows JR obviously loves her. She asks Di/Dixie, how far will she go to save her son’s life? Di/Dixie assumes she means JR. But Babe tells her she means the other son; she asks Di/Dixie if she remembers him.
Jamie goes to see his father to tell him that Palmer has really gone too far; he’s got all the hospital board members putting in a vote. JR is right there with him. It’s not like Jamie even had a chance to do anything, but now he can’t even use the hospital copy machine. Tad tells his son not to worry. He tells Jamie that he’s very encouraged to hear how well he responded in helping Amanda. He tells Jamie that it does not matter what Palmer thinks, because both he and Joe know that Jamie would be an excellent doctor. Jamie then makes a comment that in order for things to happen, some people are going to have to die.
While Amanda is getting ready to be released from the hospital, Palmer stops by. He wants her to sign a disclaimer where she releases the hospital of all liability concerning Jamie Martin. He tells her that the hospital does not want to be held responsible for Jamie’s mistakes, and in the future Jamie will not be able to treat anybody who is admitted. But Amanda tells Palmer that she wants only Jamie to treat her, and nobody else. And, she refuses to help him get Jamie in trouble.
Krystal goes to her door and notices a $10,000
check. She opens the door and sees Adam. He sighs, and tells her that she’s his
favorite ex con. He goes to her door, and tells her she can either cash that
check or kick him out, but she cannot do both. She asks, why not? He tells her because he has not signed it
yet. She admits that she cannot decide which is the better deal and she lets
him in. Krystal asks Adam why would he want to offer her this money, since she
failed to deliver her end of the bargain; proving “
Tad suggests that maybe Jamie should finish his schooling somewhere else; he tells Jamie that at least he’d be away from JR. Jamie says he refuses to be taken away from Babe and Little Adam. Tad says that it won’t be forever, only temporary. He would have vacations and weekends. But, Jamie tells his father, he will no longer be intimidated by JR. Right now, winning is more important to him than it is to JR; he’s going to take him down. Tad reminds his son that Babe is the type of woman who will wait forever for him. Jamie tells his father that Babe should not have to. He also tells Tad that JR has gone too far; he offered to pay Amanda to break them up. Tad tells Jamie that he wants to go have lunch with him and talk. Jamie says he has other plans; he’s going to rub JR’s nose in “our good news”. Whatever does he mean by that?
Babe tells Di/Dixie that she is like a second mom to Jamie, and reminds her that she’s never been by the garage to visit him. Di/Dixie admits that she has not, but knows that JR has reason to distrust his brother. Babe reminds Di/Dixie that JR drugged her, tried to kill her, and tried to kill Jamie. She tells her that she knows JR might need her help; so does Jamie. He needs to have the opportunity to be a doctor. Di admits that it’s in Jamie’s blood. Babe tells Di/Dixie that Jamie’s chances of going to med school anywhere have been ruined because of herself. JR is stopping at nothing to prevent Jamie from having any kind of future, and today she watched all of Jamie’s chances blown to bits when Palmer came and ran Jamie out of the hospital. Di/Dixie asks if she should go and talk to Palmer. Babe says she’d also like her to talk to JR to get him to stop preventing Jamie from going to school. Di/Dixie asks Babe if she wants to get Phoebe’s money also. Babe replies that she’s not after anybody’s money; she’ll work all the extra hours she has to. Babe tells Di/Dixie that the point is Jamie needs some options here. Di/Dixie tells Babe that she’s asking for small miracles. Babe tells her that she’s there because Jamie loves Di/Dixie like a mother. From one mother to another, she asks her if she’s just going to stand by and let Jamie’s future blow up right before her eyes. Di/Dixie admits that there may not be a lot she can do to prevent that from happening.
At Kendall’s, JR asks her how Greenlee is
Babe asks Di/Dixie if she is unwilling to help her because she’s angry about Babe ratting her out to Adam. Di/Dixie tells Babe that she is not angry about that, but it’s very complicated for her to help Jamie without coming between him and JR. Babe says that she is a major cause of their feud. Di/Dixie then concludes that it will be pretty difficult for her to wave a magic wand and cause JR to change when Jamie makes the choice to stay with Babe and gives up Phoebe’s offer.
Tad goes to see Palmer and asks him if he could resist, for once in his life, the urge to act like a bigshot. Palmer says that he is a bigshot and he tells Tad that he was one also, but gave it up. Amanda then enters and tells Palmer that Jamie saved her life and he has no right to treat him like that. Palmer tells her that he does not listen to the daughter of Janet from another planet, and he’ll see her in the psych ward. She tells him she hopes that they don’t meet up near a well any time soon. Tad tells Amanda that his son does not need her to defend him to the board members. Amanda replies that Jamie has what it takes to be a doctor and has to have the opportunity to go to med school. He tells her that he knows she’s still working for JR.
Krystal tells Adam that he should not be
giving her money and having expectations for her. She tells him he won’t
accomplish anything except to push his son farther away from him. He tells her
that he knows she can help him with
Babe admits to Di/Dixie that she has to live with the fact that she is ruining Jamie’s chances. And, if Di/Dixie does not help Jamie, then she herself will have to be the solution. She will have to leave Jamie, so he can have what Phoebe willed to him.
Tad reminds Amanda that she must know the condition for Jamie getting the money, and the opportunity to go to med school, is to dump his fiancé. She says yes, but she absolutely refuses to do what JR said. She tells him that she is best friends with Jamie and Babe. He asks if she would never do anything to hurt them. She tells them that it was she who warned them about JR. She adds that she might have been good friends with JR when they were kids. Tad does tell her that she’s been finagling with JR, then with Aiden and then with him for a “job”. He tells her that between those two brothers is the last place she wants to be.
Josh Madden comes by Jamie and Babe’s after noticing an ad in the paper for a car. Jamie is alone in the apartment. He tells Jamie he’s been searching want ads for cars and it’s just a coincidence that the one Jamie is attempting to sell is the same one that he noticed Babe driving the other night; the same one he’d been slaving to build. He asks Jamie if Babe knows he’s selling it. Jamie admits not yet. Josh tells Jamie, for the first time, of his encounter with Babe when those clowns tried to steal his car. He asks Jamie if he knows what Babe went through in order to enable him to keep that car.
Babe goes to see Amanda, and tells her
that she should trust Di/Dixie. Amanda does not see it that way. Babe tells her
that Di/Dixie has really gotten through to JR. But, if the only way for Jamie
to have a “happy ending” is for Babe to bow out of their relationship, then
that’s what she will do. Amanda asks Babe if she is really serious about
cutting Jamie loose if .
Josh talks to Jamie about the adventure he and Babe had with the boys who attempted to steal her car. He admits that she would not have let them get away were it not for his being an idiot, pulling her out of the car with the mistaken idea that he was rescuing her. Jamie hears that and laughs. He tells Josh that Babe knows how to rescue herself and says he wishes he could have been there to see that. Josh asks Jamie if the car is that important to him or if he went to the effort of trashing those punks for nothing.
Adam asks Krystal, what does she have to
lose if she goes after
Di/Dixie goes to the bank and identifies
herself as Dixie Cooney to Alfred. At first, he believes this must be some sort
of joke; Dixie Cooney has been dead for years. But, Tad arrives, and informs
Alfred that this is the real
Jamie tells Josh that the whole world has been dumping on Babe more than she deserves. He tells him that he plans to marry her in a few months. He wants a wedding with all the trimmings, whatever it costs. If he has to sell his car in order to afford it, it will be well worth it to give her the wedding she deserves.
Babe tells Amanda that she plans to marry Jamie in a few short months, but it won’t happen unless she can offer him better than what is happening right now. Hearing that, Amanda agrees that if JR will not let up, then breaking it off with Jamie is the best thing Babe can do for him.
Adam and Krystal go to the bank where Tad
Josh agrees to buy the car but asks Jamie how will Babe get to work? Jamie says they will find a way.
Amanda tells Babe that she’s amazed she
loves Jamie so much, she will let him go in order for him to have what he deserves.
Babe admits that she hopes it will not come to that and JR’s momma will come
through and perform another miracle .
At the bank, the masked gunmen demand that everybody give up their jewelry. Tad gives them his watch. Suddenly they grab Di/Dixie and take her jewelry. Tad, Krystal and Adam all watch and do not know what to do.
