Krystal: The way Jackson builds a case, the way he pieces together that the facts and the evidence -- I mean, the man is really nothing short of inspiring.

Tad: Yeah. He's Superman. Can we move on?

Krystal: [Chuckles] It's ok, Tad. I get it, trust me. I even admit that I'm jealous.

Tad: Who says I'm jealous?

[Krystal sighs]

Tad: You're jealous?

Krystal: Yeah, I'm jealous.

Tad: Why?

Krystal: I mean, there he is -- he's helping his daughter, and I can't do squat for mine.

Tad: That's not true at all.

[Krystal sighs]

Tad: That's just -- that's ridiculous, man. You're always there for Marissa. I've seen it firsthand. You're always there to -- to give her a shoulder to cry on or a place to stay or something to eat, a hug.

Krystal: I wish I could do more, really. I'm just watching this whole custody nightmare with J.R. spin out of control. The same way it did with Babe. And I feel even more helpless now.

Tad: I know what you mean. I got to admit, I'm more than a little worried about J.R. myself, you know? It's obvious he's on some kind of downward spiral. And I tried talking to him. I did, but I just -- I couldn't get through.

Krystal: Well, I'm not sure anybody can.

Tad: Yeah, it's hard to believe it's the same man that was at death's door not too long ago. You know what's funny? Back then, I was so scared -- I was so powerless, I was -- you know, I felt like all I could do was sit by the bed and hold his hand, and I still felt more connected to him than I do now. It's amazing. There he is, and as bad as the cancer was, he's half out of his mind on painkillers, and yet, he seemed to be more aware back then of the things that are really important.

Krystal: Hmm. I mean, how did he go from that to the bully that he is now?

Tad: Adam. If Dixie's half his soul, then Adam's the other half. And unfortunately, when the chips are down, seems like, just like his father, he tends to push anything else that means anything aside.

Krystal: Adam's not even around anymore.

Tad: Well, his expectations are.

Tad: J.R., you don't want to do this.

J.R.: The hell I don't.

Tad: Listen to me, ok? You're your father's son. You're just as brilliant at running that company as he was. You'll be just as effective at saving it as he would be, but you don't have to resort to his tactics to do it. To mudslinging and blackmail. Forget it.

J.R.: So you just want Caleb to walk all over me?

Tad: No. I want you to seize the situation as a chance to be the kind of man that I know you can be.

J.R.: You have no idea what he's capable of.

Tad: I don't care what he's capable of. I only care about what you're capable of. And it's better than this.

J.R.: That's fine. You don't want to help me get the dirt on Caleb, I'll find someone else who will.

Tad: Ok. I'm sorry to hear that, son. You're on your own.
