Tad: [Yawns] Dixie? Dixie?

Liza: I'm intruding.

Jesse: Yeah, you are, but this is a public place.

Liza: Jesse, saying good-bye to Lucy must have absolutely ripped your heart out.

Jesse: Well, the only thing harder was saying good-bye to Ellie. "And whose fault is that?" I'm sure you're thinking.

Liza: No. After I did the same thing? Jesse, I know what you're going through, and I'm so sorry.

Griffin: Hey, you.

Cara: Hi.

Griffin: What's going on? Oh ho! What was that for?

Cara: What's that for? I'm happy. I'm happy you're here. You're not halfway across the world or on a slab pretending to be dead. Were you never gonna tell me, or what?

Griffin: All right, here we go. You really need me to answer that question?

David: What exactly do you want from me, Angie?

Angie: A little honesty will do.

David: What's the point?

Angie: You. You're the point. Your life is the point. If you keep stringing the world along, playing God for the sheer fun of it, you will never, ever get what you want.

David: Ok, I'll play. What is it you think I want?

Angie: What else? Love.

Colby: Hey. I thought you said you weren't leaving.

J.R.: It's temporary.

Colby: Will you at least help me figure out what to do with all Dad's stuff? I mean, I don't even know what to do with these.

J.R.: I always wanted this. Dad never gave it to me.

Colby: I guess I'll just dump it into storage, and Dad can deal with it if he ever comes home. Oh!

Scott: Don't mean to add to your piles here, but this was just delivered.

Colby: Thanks. What is Dad's lawyer sending us?

J.R.: It's probably just some routine legal stuff.

Scott: Actually, this one is mine.

Colby: It's Dad's will. It's a new version of it.

J.R.: Oh. I guess my copy's on its way.

Colby: Maybe not. Your name's not on here.

Tad: Dixie! Dixie, you here? Dix?

Dixie: Hey!

Tad: Hey, what are you doing?

Dixie: I'm just getting things ready for A.J. Remember, Marissa said she was dropping him off today.

Tad: Oh, yeah, yeah. No, ok. Fine. That's what I figured.

Dixie: Liar.

Tad: I woke up and you weren't there. I kind of panicked. I thought it was a dream, you know. It's happened before, so --

Dixie: I'm right here. Come here. [Kiss] Mmm! Mmm! I wanted to do that before, but you were sleeping so peacefully, and your eyebrows --

Tad: Don't start, ok? They don't.

Dixie: Looking so cute.

Tad: They don't do a thing. They do not.

Dixie: Look like they were flying --

Tad: Sounds like a puppet show.

Dixie: Right off your face. It was so sweet.

Tad: Here's to that not happening.

Dixie: Here's to that not happening. And here's to us. We've been given a second chance, and I am taking it and not letting it go. Ok?

Tad: Sounds like a plan to me.

Dixie: Ok.

Colby: I am so sorry that Dad took you out of the will.

J.R.: He didn't even have enough respect to disinherit me to my face, not even in a letter.

Scott: Uncle Adam has changed his will more than once.

J.R.: Yeah, but he's blaming me for losing the house and the company. I wonder who gets my inheritance. How'd you do it, Scott? Tell him I was drinking again, embarrassing the family name?

Scott: I haven't spoken to your father.

J.R.: That's right. Your hands are clean, even when you put 'em on my wife.

Scott: You can leave Marissa out of this.

J.R.: Then own up. Admit you've been after my family's money ever since you convinced your mom and Uncle Stuart to adopt you.

Colby: J.R., stop it.

Scott: No, no. You're just proving your dad right. Keep it up, J.R. You lost your wife. You lost your son. You lost the company. You lost the house. Now you lost your dad's respect and money. Do you have anything else left to lose?

Liza: Jesse, I know this is hard.

Jesse: I made this hard for myself. I didn't have to take that baby. I didn't have to lie to my wife.

Liza: Jesse, you thought you were doing the right thing.

Jesse: As my mother used to say, "Thought killed the cat and thought another did it." I broke Angela's heart not once, twice.

Liza: Ok, Jesse, you gotta give yourself a break here. You were trying to spare Angie.

Jesse: Are you sure? I think I was trying to spare myself.

Maya: Looks like Mommy's going to school.

[Lucy fussing]

Maya: I just need to find a way to pay for it and someone to watch over you.

Randi: Come on. Let's go say hi. Hello, beautiful little girl. Hi! Thank you. How are you?

Maya: We're doing great. I'm so sorry.

Frankie: You don't have to apologize every time you see me.

Randi: Frankie understands why you had to take Lucy back.

Maya: Are Angie and Jesse ok?

Frankie: Yeah, they're hanging in there. Hope when things settle down, you let them see her?

Maya: Definitely.

Frankie: Good. Good. Hey, maybe when you get older, we can toss the ball around. I'm thinking soccer or lacrosse. Yeah. Don't worry. We got time, don't we? Yeah, we do.

Griffin: I wanted to tell you what was going on, but you were --

Cara: Sleeping with the enemy?

Griffin: Yeah.

Cara: Technically, it was just one time.

Griffin: Listen, even if you tried to talk sense into the guy, it would only have tipped him off. We wouldn't have gotten what we needed to put him away.

Cara: And you really think he deserves to be behind bars?

Griffin: Yeah, I do.

Cara: I agree that what he's done is unethical, but at the end of the day, he's saving lives.

Griffin: But the bottom line is David needs to be stopped. And if his going away stops this thing between you two, that's even better.

David: Is that what you think I do with my spare time, Angie? Sit around pining for love?

Angie: You grew up in a world that was nothing but cruel to you. A mother who didn't deserve the title, a father who took his own life. Then you lost your brother, two daughters. Why should you believe in love? But -- and this is what makes you different, David -- you do, maybe even more than the rest of us. The need to feel connected to someone, anyone. That's what makes you do the things you do.

David: You must be talking about the horrible, evil, prison-worthy things, right?

Angie: You're brilliant, but you're also desperate.

David: For love.

Angie: And control. You have had so much taken from you already. You'll be damned if you'll let it happen again. So what do you do? You manufacture a way to have the ultimate power over life and death. Genius, really, and incredibly sad. Because even with all that, you are still alone. It doesn't have to be that way.

David: So are you offering to be my friend, Angie?

Angie: I'm offering a way out. You're not the only one who has suffered loss, who's been hit so hard they can't catch their breath, don't know if they ever will again.

David: I'm sorry, I really am, about the loss of your daughter.

Angie: Thank you. It's been torture, but it's taught me something. The only way to deal with pain is to stare it down with the help and support of the people who love you, and I think that you would realize that if you would just drop your guard. And you've come close once or twice with me, but then the wall -- it always goes back up. Don't put them up now. Let me in, David. You won't regret it.

David: All right. Why are you doing this?

Angie: Believe it or not, I give a damn.

David: About your sight. You want to see again. You can relax. Of course, I'm going to treat you, with or without a friendship.

Angie: I give a damn about you, David.

David: Look, I'm sorry, but that's not something I hear a lot, if at all. So forgive me for asking this again. Why?

Angie: Because you were a boy who was hurt, a man who lost children. Because in spite of it all, you are still struggling to stay afloat. I admire that. I relate to it. This can't be how you envisioned your life.

David: No. No, it's not.

Angie: Well, then, make a change. Stop withholding from everyone. I'm not just talking about your secret patients. Stop withholding who you are.

David: And who's that, Angie?

Angie: A man who's carrying his heart in a thousand tiny pieces. A man who -- even the thought may make you cringe -- but who needs a little help to heal.

Cara: When you were off playing dead, helping Ryan and Zach, David was helping me -- a lot.

Griffin: Helping you with what? Cara, you can talk to me.

Cara: Um -- I thought the cancer had come back. And it didn't. I don't want you to worry, but I did a full workup.

Griffin: And you told David.

Cara: I did.

Griffin: I'm sorry that it wasn't me, but I'm here now.

Cara: I know.

Griffin: What's the deal? If it wasn't the cancer, then why were you sick?

Jesse: It took me a while to get on board with the whole pregnancy thing.

Liza: Going through with it meant Angie was gonna lose her sight.

Jesse: When I finally did embrace the idea of this baby, I couldn't wait. I wasn't there for Frankie growing up. I figured this would be a way to fix all that. Then Ellie was stillborn, and I just let my wife down all over again.

Liza: Jesse, no.

Jesse: I couldn't just stand there and let it all be for nothing. When Angela was crying out to hold her little girl -- that's when I gave her Lucy.

Liza: Jesse, everything that you have done, it was all out of love.

Jesse: Was it? 'Cause for me, looking back, it seemed it was all out of fear -- fear of not being a good husband or father, fear of -- letting my family -- losing -- why the hell am I even telling you all of this?

Liza: Maybe because I can help.

Scott: Here's what you don't understand, J.R. You brought this on yourself!

Colby: That's not helping.

Scott: No, he needs to hear it.

J.R.: I don't need to hear anything!

Scott: You need help, J.R.

J.R.: You're gonna be rotting in hell long before my father ever is.

Scott: Are you threatening me?

J.R.: You tell my dad. He'll be there long before me, too. Nobody's taking anything from me again.

Dixie: Where are you off to?

Tad: I'm gonna go check in with Jesse, ok?

Dixie: Ok, all right. Well, give him and Angie my best.

Tad: I will. I'll see you later?

Dixie: You betcha. What?

Tad: I can't believe I get to say that. "See you later," like it doesn't mean anything.

Dixie: Get used to it.

Tad: I intend to. Just hope you get used to it.

Dixie: Hey, now.

Tad: Ha ha!

Dixie: Check yourself before you wreck yourself!

[Running footsteps]

A.J.: Can I have a snack?

Dixie: Oh, boys and their appetites. Yes, absolutely --

[Knock on door]

Dixie: Hang on one second, ok? Let me get the door. Hi.

J.R.: Hi. Hey, bud.

A.J.: I missed you.

J.R.: I missed you, too.

Colby: Hi, Dad. I'm fine. Actually, I'm not fine. J.R. is out of control. He packed a bag, and he's gone. He's angry at everybody, and -- Dad, now he's angry about the will.

Liza: If this is bothering you, we don't --

Jesse: No. I suppose Lucy and Maya are better off with you than in some funky-ass motel room.

Liza: I was also thinking she's gonna be spending a lot of time with me, that I would talk to Maya and maybe she would consider it.

Jesse: Consider giving Lucy back to us?

Liza: Couldn't hurt.

Jesse: Why would you do that for us, Liza?

Liza: Why don't you consider it me trying to make amends?

Jesse: About 25 years too late, wouldn't you say?

Liza: Better late than never, wouldn't you say?

Jesse: I appreciate what you're trying to do, but you can't fix this. I can't fix this. This can't be fixed.

Liza: Jesse.

Frankie: Yes, yes. Oh, thanks.

Maya: The Hubbards take family really seriously. I never had that growing up.

Randi: Most don't. They're really special people.

Frankie: I gotta go pick up my mom.

Maya: You tell her that we say hi.

Frankie: Yeah.

[Lucy sneezes]

Frankie: Ooh. Excuse you. And remember what we talked about. Yay, Eagles. Boo, Steelers.

Maya: Don't worry. I'll make sure she knows what's up.

Frankie: Yeah. Do that.

Randi: Bye, sweetie.

Maya: Say bye.

Randi: Take care.

Maya: Bye, guys.

Frankie: Bye.

Maya: Say bye.

Cara: The bloodwork came back, and there really wasn't anything to worry about.

Griffin: Ok. Maybe you should get a second opinion just to be safe.

Cara: I don't need a second opinion.

Griffin: Did Dr. H. Tell you that?

Cara: No, he doesn't know I'm in the clear.

Griffin: Good. He'd probably use it to his advantage somehow.

Cara: I want us to not have this same fight, Griff.

Griffin: And we don't have to. Now that David is where he belongs, you have zero reason to stay in contact with the guy.

Cara: See, that's not true, because I'm pregnant.

Angie: You still here?

David: Even I wouldn't run out on a blind woman.

Angie: Told you. There's still hope for you yet.

David: Maybe there could have been, Angie, but we both know that I'm gonna be convicted.

Angie: So?

David: So I'm going to prison. No breaking me down just to build me back up again. That's a waste of your time.

Angie: I don't think so. Yes, you'll have to pay for your crimes, but there's no need to go off with your tail between your legs if you let the world see you're human.

David: And what? Destroy my sterling rep?

Angie: I'm telling you, they'll respond.

David: No, no, it's too late.

Angie: It's never too late. Give Pine Valley the people you're holding back, including yourself.

Griffin: You're pregnant?

Cara: Yes.

Griffin: And David's the father. You're gonna keep it?

Cara: Of course. I'm absolutely gonna keep this baby.

Griffin: Cara, you need to think about this.

Cara: I've been thinking about it. Since I was 8, I've been thinking about this. This is like a dream of mine, to become a mother. Griff, I didn't think this was gonna happen, and it has. I'm not giving this -- absolutely, I am not gonna give this baby up. I can't.

Griffin: Ok. Ok.

Cara: Ok. Are you ready to be an uncle?

Griffin: Hold off on the cigars. Does David know?

Cara: Not yet.

Griffin: Not ever. If you care about yourself, if you care about this baby, you don't say a word.

Angie: I wasn't lying when I said I feel the good in you. I needed a miracle to restore my sight, and you stepped up. You care.

David: That's a stretch.

Angie: You care.

David: All right, maybe a little.

Frankie: Mom, everything ok?

Angie: Yes. Everything is just fine.

Frankie: Let's get you out of here then, ok?

David: Angie. You think maybe you'll come visit me at the big house, or what?

Angie: You haven't seen the last of me.

Tad: Well, you look like you just got hit by a truck.

Jesse: Thank you for the compliment.

Tad: How's Angela doing?

Jesse: Everything's still dark.

Tad: And we're not just talking about her eyesight, are we?

Jesse: No, Maya took the baby.

Tad: I'm sorry. We knew it might be coming. Angela?

Jesse: It's just more grief for her to pile on top of the agony. I put her through her more hell than should be legal.

Tad: Yeah, but you've also given her more than enough love to make up for it.

Jesse: But I hurt her. That is bad. And it's just sitting there, keeping me from making it better.

Tad: She'll be back. I mean, you're Jesse and Angie. It always does.

Jesse: I appreciate the optimism, but how do you know this?

Tad: Because I've been there. I've felt exactly the way Angela does now when Dixie hurt me.

Madison: Cheers.

Scott: Yes.

Madison: Maybe one of these days, we'll upgrade to a real meal?

Scott: You mean like in an actual restaurant?

Madison: Mm-hhm.

Scott: I think that could be arranged.

Madison: Still worried about J.R.?

Scott: I don't know. Maybe Colby's right. Maybe he's gone for good.

Madison: You honestly think he'd leave A.J. like that?

Scott: I don't know what to think.

Madison: I've said it before, but you really are amazing.

Scott: Refresh my memory.

Madison: After everything that J.R.'s put you through, you could be jumping for joy that the guy's leaving town, but instead --

Scott: Moping over a hot dog?

Madison: It's sweet and beyond generous.

Scott: I just keep thinking about our dads. Whenever Uncle Adam went too far, which he often did, my dad was always there to pull him back.

Madison: Your father really left his mark on you.

Scott: I hope so.

Madison: I'm sorry your family's falling apart. I'm sure it doesn't really help, but I'm here for whatever, whenever you need it.

Scott: Thank you. Can I collect now? Could really use a napkin.

Madison: You're a mess.

Scott: It helps. It helps a lot.

J.R.: What a great surprise it is to see you.

Dixie: You know, J.R., Marissa isn't here. I don't think --

J.R.: Come on, Mom. After all the stories you told me how you used to steal time with me when Dad had custody? You gotta know what I'm going through here.

Dixie: A few minutes.

J.R.: Thank you. Tell me, bud, how you doing?

A.J.: Ok.

J.R.: No reason to be nervous. Maybe we could have a little man-to-man talk. It could help.

Dixie: I'll go get your snack.

J.R.: How about another one of them hugs? Boy, I love you. I need you to do something for me. Go upstairs and get your favorite toy. You come back here really fast. I'm gonna take you on a little adventure.

Dixie: How does some cut-up fruit sound?

A.J.: I gotta get my Buzz Lightyear toy really fast.

Dixie: Really fast? Why?

J.R.: The faster the better.

A.J.: Dad's taking me on an adventure.

Maya: I need to work to pay for child care, so if I get this job that I just interviewed for, then I'm going to have to go to school at night. Ok. I understand. Then I have to drop the classes. Thank you.

[Lucy babbling]

Maya: Oh, are you hungry? Hold on, hold on. It's ok. It's ok. Oh, no!

Liza: Here, let me help you.

Maya: Don't even bother. It turns out that I'm not gonna be needing that anyways.

Liza: Look, you don't have to do all of this by yourself. I'm sure that Jesse and Angie would love to help out.

Maya: No, I can't ask them for anything. I've already taken too much.

Frankie: You all right, Mom?

Angie: I miss her little noises and that sweet baby smell.

Frankie: This is all my fault.

Angie: Don't you even go there. You did nothing wrong.

Frankie: I practically forced Maya to take the baby-sitting job. If she hadn't, she wouldn't have gotten to know Lucy and maybe things would have been --

Angie: Maybe nothing. Things worked out the way they were supposed to. And as for your part, all you did was help out a friend, not to mention your sleep-deprived parents.

Frankie: You really mean that? You think Lucy's where she belongs?

Angie: I have to, Frankie, otherwise I'd never be able to move on.

Scott: I shouldn't have. I --

Madison: No, I'm glad you did.

Scott: Yeah?

Madison: I'm so sorry for pushing you away.

Scott: No, stop. Stop right there, ok? We did this already. No more sorries.

Madison: But it wasn't your fault that --

Scott: Madison, you lost your child, and whatever you needed to do to get through that, I completely understand.

Madison: And I just gotta stop coming up with housewarming gifts as my lame excuse for seeing you.

Scott: Lame? That microwave? No, I don't think you could beat that if you tried. No.

Madison: I miss you. I miss this. I appreciate that you were taking it slow and giving me space.

Scott: And I didn't at first, and I'm sorry for that.

Madison: What happened to no more sorries?

Scott: I just couldn't stand the idea of not having you in my life.

Madison: And still you let me go.

Scott: You didn't really give me much of a choice.

Madison: Well, I want to give you one now. What do you say we give this one a shot, see if what we had is still there? Unless you think it's too late.


Dixie: Honey, why don't you take your snack and run upstairs? There's not gonna be any adventure for now. It just has to wait.

A.J.: Ok.

Dixie: Go, go, go.

J.R.: If I told you that I was taking him, you'd be an accessory.

Dixie: And you would be a kidnapper.

J.R.: I've been called worse. I'm still taking him.

Dixie: No, you are not.

J.R.: Marissa and Bianca are turning him against me. What am I supposed to do, sit back and watch them corrupt my son?

Dixie: They're not corrupting your son.

J.R.: They're not teaching him to be a man. How can he grow up in a house with -- lesbians?

Dixie: Bianca, for one thing, is a wonderful mother. And if Marissa is anything like Babe --

J.R.: She's not! Why aren't you on my side?

Dixie: I am on your side, but you just tried to bribe a judge and blackmail Marissa with a sex tape?

J.R.: You have to understand why I did it. Remember how you fought for me?

Dixie: I fought for you because I'm your mother! A.J. needs his mother.

J.R.: Marissa is not his mother, and neither is Bianca. Damn it, I'm not gonna let them get away with this!

Dixie: All right, J.R., just calm down.

J.R.: Calm down? They took my house and my company and my wife. I'm not letting them take my son!

Dixie: Ok, wait.

J.R.: No, you call the cops. We'll be long gone by the time they get here.

Dixie: J.R., you cannot go. You cannot leave. You cannot leave with or without A.J.

Cara: How are you?

David: How do I look?

Cara: You're gonna pull off the vertical stripes.

David: Thank you.

Cara: I came to say good-bye.

David: I take it there wasn't a long line to get in.

Cara: Oh, yeah. I just said VIP, and -- bam! Here I am.

David: You're a smart woman. It's good to see you, Cara.

Cara: You were a friend when I needed one, and I'll always remember that.

David: Come on. All I did was point out a few clouds, right?

Cara: You actually did more than that.

David: What is it, Cara? Did you read your test results? Is it bad news?

Cara: It's just the opposite.

Madison: Well, I guess that answers my question.

Scott: If I didn't make myself clear, I can try again.

Madison: Well, there were a few mixed signals, so --

Scott: Yeah, probably. Just a few, probably.

Colby: Scott, I -- I'm so sorry. Actually, I'm not sorry. It's about time.

Madison: Couldn't have said it better myself.

Scott: What's going on? Did you find J.R.?

Colby: No, I've been trying to get ahold of him. I've got something to tell him, but he's not picking up.

Scott: What's the big news?

Colby: Dad's coming home.

Dixie: You can't go.

J.R.: You can't stop me.

Dixie: Maybe I can't, but maybe somebody else can. If you go now, you will never find out.

J.R.: What are you talking about? All right, that's it. I'm done. A.J.?

Dixie: David. David might have other people, patients. Babe could be alive.

Cara: You actually gave me something -- something I thought might never happen.

David: I'm sorry. I'm not following you.

Cara: You have a right to know.

David: Cara, to know what?

Cara: That I'm pregnant -- with your baby.

Tad: I know the circumstances are different, but I thought I'd lost my faith in Dixie, same way you think Angela's lost faith in you.

Jesse: So how did you get over it?

Tad: Sounds cliché, but time, space. And Dixie was smart enough to give me both. Don't give up on Angela, Jesse.

Jesse: You kidding me? I'm not gonna give up on Angela. She's the best part of me. I'll do everything I can to get her back.

Frankie: You know, I could hang out till Dad gets back.

Angie: Go on, sweetheart, it's fine.

Frankie: You sure?

Angie: I have to get used to Lucy not being here. Might as well start now.

Frankie: All right. I'll check in with you later, ok?

Angie: Ok, sweetheart.

Frankie: All right.

Angie: Frankie, did you turn on a light?

Frankie: Yeah. How did you know?

Angie: Oh, God. I see it.
