Raising a glass of champagne, she sarcastically proposes a toast to Kendall, the one and only mother of Ryans baby. Ryan says it isnt true. Kendall insists that the baby is Greenlees. Greenlee tells Kendall no more lies. Greg tells Greenlee that perhaps he released her from the hospital too soon. David informs the group he got Greenlees test results. Greg is aghast that David stole his results and asks how dare he. David says Greenlee had every right to see those test results. David says the child is RH positive and Greenlee and Ryan are RH negative. Lily states that two RH negative people cannot produce an RH positive child. Kendall tells Greg to say the test results were in error. Greenlee then admits she broke into Maddens files and saw Kendalls confidential patient file.

And what was left of Ryans sample was at risk and there was no time to waste. If she didnt hurry there would be no baby from Ryans sperm. She says she knew that if she didnt give Greenlee Ryans baby Greenlee would not survive. So she had Dr. Madden inseminate her to give Greenlee her desperately needed baby. Crying, Kendall says when this child is born hell be her gift to Greenlee because she loves her and doesnt want to lose her.
