Ryan comes to Kendall’s at night. She tells him that
she needs to get some sleep because she’s had a lousy day and even lousier
evening, she needs sleep. She holds the
door open for Ryan. He tells her he’s
not going anywhere. She tells him that
she remembers him telling her that he would help her through her pregnancy, so
he needs to know that the pregnant lady needs her rest. He tells her he’s not going anywhere until he
says what he has to say.
Doctors are treating Dixie at Zach’s hotel. She is delirious. The doctors tell Zach that the antibiotics
may or may not work and they might have to take her to a hospital in order to
cure her of her fever.
At the bowling alley, Tad, Di, Aidan and Erin are socializing. The women
then decide that maybe they should bowl a game of boys against girls.
Lily meets Jonathan up at the tree
house. He tells her that there is an
important reason that he called her. He
asks her to open the basket with cheese and olives and other goodies. He tells her he made certain not to have any
red in the basket and there is something else very important about this basket
that he prepared for her.
The doctors tell Zach that it’s unlikely
that Dixie will die but they strongly suggest she go to a
At Kendall’s, she asks Ryan what it is
that he has to say, realizing that asking him is the only way to get rid of
him. He then tells her that he wants to
keep their child.
Dixie asks Zach to tell her the truth. Is she going to die? She tells him she remembers hearing the
doctors saying that nobody could have survived an accident like the one she was
in. He reminds her that that was a long
time ago and she survived her accident and she will survive this. She tells him that doctors all lie. She looks to be drifting in and out of clarity
and believes she is still recovering from her car accident in Europe. She tells him she’s afraid she’s not going to
make it. She has a terrible fever. He tells her that dying is what cowards
do. A wise woman told him that. You have to embrace life, hang on to it and
At the bowling alley, the four people are
competing and keeping score. Aidan bowls
first and scores well. Erin is up next to bowl. Di
encourages her to not listen to the guys and to believe she can beat them. She scores well also.
Jonathan informs Lily that he got an
orderly job at the hospital. She tells
him that is great. He tells her the most
important thing is they caught the chameleon lady. They caught Janet Dillon and she’s in jail so
that means is that he is in the clear.
All the people who accused him of all those crimes will now know that he
is innocent. Janet did all those
crimes. Hearing that, Lily admits that
she is really mad at that Janet Dillon woman.
She really dislikes her not only for the terrible things she did but
also for setting Jonathan up to get blamed for it. She is the reason they had to sneak out in
order to see each other and why her dad and brother and so many others hated
Jonathan. He tells her that he dislikes
Janet also but he realizes she has serious problems like he did, and he feels
sorry for her more than anything else.
Lily tells him that she realizes that Jonathan had a brain tumor and is
better now but Janet Dillon did not have a brain tumor. She was just crazy and evil and wanted to
hurt people. He tells her that he
believes that Janet only had good intentions and wanted to protect the people
she loves. Suddenly, Lily tells Jonathan
she has to go now.
Ryan tells Kendall that he knows he has bad history and has wondered if he’d ever be fit
to be a father but he now knows that he can put all those bad memories in the
past and he can be a good father. She
does not speak. He asks her to please
say something. She tells him she will
think about it but he’d better think about it too. He tells her he will. She tells him if he thinks that fatherhood is
all one big picnic and baseball games and fun, he’s wrong. She asks him just what his plan is.
Dixie asks Zach about Kendall. Doesn’t he love her? He tells her of course he loves Kendall, but it may never work between them because he’s done things that are
unforgivable. She asks him why he wants
to give up. Does he want to be forgiven
or does he not believe that he’s worthy of it?
He evades the question and tells her he will get her some water.
Kendall tells Ryan that she suspects that Julia put him up
to this idea about fatherhood. He tells
her it has nothing to do with Julia. She
tells him that she’s concerned about his wanting to raise his own child but not
knowing how. Is there any substance
behind it? He tells her that he admits
that he was not certain if he should or how to be a father but after spending a
lot of time and giving it a lot of thought, he’s really come to realize that
this kid is special to him. This is going
to be a beautiful person. He will have
both of their physical features and great qualities but he won’t be affected by
the negativity in their lives because he will be a down-to-earth little guy. He will understand all about what it will be
like to live for the moment. He will be
a great kid. She should see that he
would want him around because he will be the very best of Kendall and the best of himself. So
how could he want to miss out on that?
Hearing that, Kendall is stunned.
She tells Ryan that now she’s discovered that Ryan does not want to
raise the baby alone but he wants to raise him with her.
Jonathan asks Lily where she has to
go. Why does she have to leave? Lily tells him that he has disagreed with
her. He believes that Janet Dillon is
not responsible for her actions. She
believes that Janet is and she should be punished so she tells Jonathan that
they can no longer be boyfriend and girlfriend.
He tells her that just because they had one little disagreement doesn’t
mean they have to end their relationship.
She tells him that if they disagree then they must both want to change
the other’s opinion. She knows that is
the case with her father. And she knows
she will not change her opinion of Janet to match Jonathan’s. She knows all too well all the tension she
feels toward her father and how angry he is at the fact that they disagree
about her seeing Jonathan and disagreements cause tension. Jonathan tells Lily that they don’t have to
break up because of that.
At the bowling alley, Tad discovers that
he needs more practice. He gives many
excuses, for example, he tells the women that he needs to meditate, he tells
them that he’s wearing the wrong shoes and the wrong clothing. He then suggests that perhaps the guys let
them win. He and Di then go home to
leave Aidan and Erin alone.
Dixie is delirious and talking. Zach asks her if she can hear him. She then awakens and asks him what he is
doing there. He tells her he’s taking
care of her. She tells him he has to go
and ask somebody to forgive him. He
tells her that he must go to Kendall. She needs
Kendall asks Ryan if he has not given any thought to his
plans with the baby. He admits that he
is running on pure emotion. She tells
him this is really great. He asks her if
any parent believes that they have all the answers. He tells her that for the first time in a
long time, he is really clear about what he wants. He asks her if she does not believe it’s a
good idea. She tells him it’s not that
but she does not see the baby’s face like he does and she does not feel
connected to him. He tells her that when
they were trapped after the explosion, she told him that she associated this
baby with the blackout and with Zach’s betrayal, and it doesn’t have to be that
While Dixie is delirious with fever, Zach urges her to get some rest. She answers, “Tad, Tad, Tad.”
Ryan tells Kendall that the two of them are going to be holding their son in a matter of
months, and when he gets there, it’s not going to matter in the slightest to
him how he was conceived. What is going
to matter to him is somebody taking care of him, feeding him and keeping him
safe. Their son is going to count on
somebody giving him the best. He tells
her that she may not feel it right now but she is the best thing that has ever
happened to that kid. He tells her that
maybe she won’t be doing the charity events, the PTA meetings and the soccer
games because maybe it’s not her style but he does see her riding bicycles with
her son in Spain and being there for him. She cries and tells him that she wishes she
could feel what he feels. Then, maybe,
she would not be such a cold-hearted wench.
He tells her that he understands how, after losing Zach and losing
Greenlee, and remembering how he faked his death, that she has reservations and
that is completely understandable, but he knows that she has what it takes to
be a mother. He tells her that he will
be there for her and for their child.
Hearing that, she tells him that she has just seen the old Ryan. The person he was before he turned into such
a colossal ass. She tells him that he’s
finally come back.
Jonathan tells Lily that they should not
have to break up just because they disagree on some things. She asks if they can still be boyfriend
girlfriend even if they disagree. He
tells her that they can agree to disagree.
She asks if that means that she can still be his girlfriend. He tells her yes. That is what he means.
Dixie is talking about Tad and Katie. Zach asks her who Katie is. He asks if she is their baby.
Di is back with Tad at his home showing
him the techniques for holding the bowling ball. He holds onto her and tells her perhaps she
needs to show him one more time but he’s not paying attention to her bowling
instructions. It seems he has something
else on his mind. He kisses her.
Erin and Aidan return to his office. She talks about her bowling team, all the
people and the weird shirts. She then
stops herself, realizing that she is a real “turn on” to him babbling about
bowling. He tells her that he finds it
very sexy. She asks if what she talked
about was just a little over the top. He
tells her that he feels charmed and if he wanted a different her, he’d be out
there looking for her. He kisses her.
After discovering the Ryan she knew and
loved, she asks him why he stayed away for so long. He tells her he’s not certain. He dealt with all the demons involving his
brothers and father. He tells her that
he realizes he may never be completely back to the old Ryan but he’s familiar
with the way things are. She tells him
she understands that all too well. She
knows that past memories are only familiar but they always change. Even when Bianca and Miranda came home for
Christmas, she knew that things are never going to be completely the same as
they were. He asks her if she
understands what he is saying. She tells
him she thinks he does. She kisses him.
Dixie tells Zach that she has to find Tad and tell him
Ryan tells Kendall he did not expect that (her kissing him). She tells him that impulses are very
impulsive. He tells her that she got mad
when he kissed her. She says she knows but
now she wants him to do it again. She
asks him to make love to her.
Jonathan recites a poem to Lily about how
she was there for him, always had faith in him, fought for him and protected
his freedom. She then tells him that
they should declare a holiday called Jonathan’s freedom day but she tells him
she has to get home before Reggie wonders where she is. He tells her that he hates that she has to
sneak out and then rush home and he hopes that some day, that will change.
Erin tells Aidan that she wants “more.” He assumes she’s talking about wanting to
kick his butt at a sport again but she tells him she wants more of him. She wants to make love to him.
The nurse Zach has hired takes Dixie’s temperature and confirms that her fever has broken and she will be
ok. Dixie wonders where Zach has gone.
Tad and Di are on his couch getting it
on. Right then, there’s a knock on the
door. He is very frustrated. Zach is standing at Tad's door.
