    Chicago, Here They Come!

    Wednesday, March 26 2008

    The Chandler Mansion is a hub of activity as Krystal and Babe are gathering together their things to move out. Adam taunts Krystal a bit, while JR tries to keep them from going. Opal enters, all abuzz about Tad being safe. She brings a surprise – Robert! – with her. “I hope I’m not intrudin’ on anything,” he drawls. But Adam welcomes him in with open arms. “I’m honored to have you in my home,” Adam says.

    Back at the busy Chandler Mansion...Adam shoots the breeze with Robert about Robert’s upcoming retirement. Adam offers to help him out with whatever he needs, in indebtedness for saving Colby. Nearby, Tad, Krystal, and Opal are skeptically watching Adam schmooze with Robert. Opal tries to console Tad, saying she knows how it must feel to have a Gardner back in his life. She asks Tad to try to have an open mind about Robert. Tad reluctantly nods. In the entryway, JR is saying goodbye to Babe, and suggests another game of cards. “If you win, I’ll do anything you want,” he promises. “If you lose, you have to stay here at the mansion.” But Babe doesn’t want to play – she wants to go home to her own place. While Robert steps out to make a sinister-sounding phone call, Adam offers Krystal a drink, but she instead lectures him about not taking care of himself. Colby enters and finds Tad. She says she’s sad that the “full house” is disbanding. Babe presses Colby for details about what happened – she tells them the whole kidnapping story. “Frankie totally saved my life,” she gushes. Frankie shows up and Adam thanks him for everything he did. “For the record, your daughter played a pretty important part, too,” Frankie insists. Colby comes into the room and Frankie gives her a gift – a pair of replacement shoes. She hugs him. “Well…I smell romance,” Krystal says, peeking through a nearby door. Frankie apologizes to Colby for calling her spoiled. “You’re more than Daddy’s Little Rich Girl and I’m sorry it took me so long to see that,” he says. Just as Frankie’s about to leave, JR comes downstairs and stumbles a little. Frankie’s concerned, but JR blames it on “the flu,” and shrugs off pressure to head to the hospital for evaluation. Finally, everyone’s packed and leaving. Krystal turns to Adam to thank him for letting them stay. “Next time you need your life saved, you’ll know where to turn,” Adam says. Tad faces Robert and stiltedly thanks him for last night. Robert assures him that’s what families are for. Again, Adam offers to help out Robert.
