>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Dixie: I need to make sure that you're going to keep my secret. Help me and this baby.

David: There's a clinic in Zurich. They'll take your case if I ask them to.

Maggie: "Vanessa -- evil." Frankie, what does that mean?

Leo: There might be a slight possibility that your friend Jake Martin went off with my fiancée.

Jake: Who would you most want to be stranded on a deserted island with?

Mateo: [As Don Vito Corleone] The Godfather demands respect.

Hayley: Stop it. That's not funny. It's not funny.

Mateo: [Normal voice] Think your ratings are going to go up? "Talk-show host by day, drug lord's wife by night."

Hayley: Nobody thinks you're a drug lord. Everybody knows you were released.

Mateo: Yeah? They thought I got sprung because of your celebrity or your dad's name.

Hayley: That is not what they think.

Mateo: Well, until the real Proteus is in jail, you'd better get used to it.

Chris: You have a seat.

Hayley: Well, you know something? You have some audacity, summoning us first of all and then here to this dive.

Chris: It's noisy and it's crowded and word is sure to get back to Proteus that we're working together.

Hayley: Oh, fantastic. Hold a gun to our heads, why don't you?

Mateo: Okay, so what do you got on Proteus?

Chris: I've narrowed it down to one of two people. The clear favorite right now is David Hayward.

David: Anna.

Anna: Sorry. Sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt your -- thing. I need to tell David something important.

Dixie: Of course. Um, well, good-bye, again.

David: Good-bye.

Dixie: And thank you.

Anna: She's so polite. Don't lecture me on jealousy or boundaries or the preternatural importance of Dixie's feelings.

David: You know, this is my room, so next time, why don't you try knocking?

Anna: Knock this, you lying son of -- no, I'm not going to do this. I'm going to give you this piece of information and then you've seen the last of me, all right?

David: Okay. Go ahead. What is it?

Anna: Forget it. No, it's -- I'm not going to risk what's left of my career for someone dumb enough to pine after Dixie Martin.

Jake: Is that your answer?

Greenlee: What was the question? Just kidding. Who would I want to be stranded with on a deserted island? You, of course, Jake.

Jake: No. No, no, no, I can't -- we can't do this, okay?

Greenlee: This is life and death, isn't it? Let's stop thinking and generate some body heat before we freeze to death.

Vanessa: Oh, darling, I am so delighted you're coming to Spain with me.

Leo: I know.

Vanessa: There's so much romance there, you know.

Leo: I know.

Vanessa: So much art to admire and money to acquire.

Leo: That's right, so can I have the tickets, please?

Vanessa: You needn't worry your head with little trivial details. Mother's thought of everything.

Leo: Come on, listen to me. No, listen -- Greenlee's run off with Dr. Dumb, and I'm riding Mommy's apron strings to Barcelona. Could you at least let me play the man and handle the bloody tickets, please? Please?

Vanessa: Darling, I had no idea you felt that way.

Leo: I do feel --

[Doorbell rings]

Leo: Yeah? What can I -- Maggie. Hey. What can I do for you?

Maggie: Hey, Leo. Actually, I'm looking for your mother. I think I have something that would interest her.

Leo: Mother?

Vanessa: Hello, dear. How nice to see you.

Maggie: Is it, Vanessa?

Vanessa: Oh, well, Mary Margaret, we're delighted to see you, aren't we, Leo?

Leo: Yeah.

Maggie: I'm sure you are.

Vanessa: Leo, I am all-aflutter about our plane. Would you take care of getting us to the airport?

Leo: Absolutely.

Vanessa: I think you should call -- silly, silly. You know exactly what to do.

Leo: All right. Okay, I'll see you later, Maggie. It was good to see you.

Maggie: You, too.

Leo: How much they getting for first-class tickets to Barcelona these days? That ought to do it.

Vanessa: Oh. Mary Margaret, I've been absolutely horrendous, leaving you to your own devices. I should have been entertaining you and introducing you to the locals.

Maggie: Cut the bull, Vanessa.

Vanessa: Oh, what? What do you mean?

Maggie: I cracked the code. I know exactly what Frankie was trying to tell Bianca, and I know exactly what you are.

Chris: Thanks.

Hayley: I don't give a rat's rear end who Proteus is or isn't. My husband's involvement in this case is over.

Mateo: Calm down, will you?

Hayley: I will not! This is over. You will not be bait for him anymore.

Mateo: Who is the other possibility you're talking about?

Hayley: Don't ask because it doesn't matter.

Chris: If it's not David, the only other viable suspect is his mother.

Mateo: We thought that. We considered her. We thought she was too much of a long shot, though.

Chris: Oh, Vanessa has access to the hospital via her son David, all of Pine Valley through old man Cortlandt, and then she was hanging around SOS when she was trying to get that singing gig.

Mateo: You think she's that good of an actress?

Chris: Well, I can tell you what I think --

Hayley: Oh, you know what? I really don't care anymore. Proteus, he or she, got you involved in this when he threatened me and your son.

Mateo: Yes, I had no choice because I needed to keep you safe.

Hayley: Exactly my point. Now you have a choice. You don't have to risk your life with this guy playing a rousing game of Feds versus drug lord.

Chris: I'll have Proteus identified in a few days, Mateo.

Hayley: Oh, oh, gee, where have I heard that before?

Chris: You with me? Are you with me?

Hayley: Mateo, no, I said. No.

Mateo: What do you need me to do?

Chris: I think that whatever you've got and withholding from us, it'll seal a conviction on him. Am I right? Am I right?

Hayley: There are three of us at this table. Do you understand me?

Chris: Mateo, I need your word that whatever evidence you got against him, you're going to hand over to me.

Hayley: Am I not speaking loudly enough for you to hear, or are you one of those Cro-Magnon men who is a throwback, don't acknowledge women's opinions and feelings regarding their husbands? Is that -- do I threaten you?

Chris: This is between Mateo and me.

Hayley: You locked my husband in a cage and waited for someone to come and kill him.

Mateo: He did give me that vest. Saved my life.

Hayley: Oh, did he give you a vest? Oh, that's very nice. He gave you a vest. Did it ever occur to you that somebody could have shown up there with a gun and a silencer and blown his head off? Or taken a switchblade and slit his throat? Or taken your wonder heart attack drug and injected it into his neck?

Mateo: Hey, hey --

Hayley: Has that ever occurred to you? Do you think that your bulletproof vest would have helped him then? No, I --

Mateo: It's okay.

Hayley: No, it's not okay.

Mateo: Listen -- I hate this just as much as you do, okay? But I got to stick with this till the end.

Hayley: Why don't we just get away from here --

Mateo: I can't.

Hayley: And go to San Antonio, and we'll stay with your mother until this is over.

Mateo: I'm in too deep, way in too deep. And we're not really safe until Proteus is either dead or in jail, right?

Chris: You're right. It's the best way out.

Hayley: I hate you.

Mateo: She'll come around.

Leo: Now to answer that musical question, "What to do with a drunken sailor"?

Man: What? You? What do you want now?

Leo: Breathe, man. Okay, I need advice, okay? Advice from a man of the world. Okay, listen to me. Now, if you were to take a woman sailing, somewhere romantic, where would you take her?

Greenlee: Oh. Feels like 60 below. Thank God we're together. You do make me feel like it'll be okay.

Jake: Damn it, Greenlee, do you have any idea what you're doing to me?

Greenlee: Evidently, not much.

Jake: Oh, come on! You know how bad that I want to hold you. I mean, Greenlee, every male hormone, every nerve ending in my body is just aching to grab you right now and take you into that tent. I got this voice screaming in my head, "Take advantage of her, dude. Go for it." I cannot do this. Plus, we got to get this bonfire built right now or a plane is going to fly overhead and we're not even ready for it.

Greenlee: That's what's got you so freaked out?

Jake: Yes. That and also the fact that a real man -- you understand, a man with integrity, a man -- the only kind of man I'm talking about -- doesn't take advantage of a woman when she's shivering and she's terrified and she's -- and she's been drugged.

Greenlee: Your code of honor is so sweet.

Jake: Yeah? Well, let me tell you something, Greenlee. Don't -- get that smile off your face because as of right now, that code of honor is going right out the window. I'm serious. I am warning you. I'm taking these Chinese herbs, and right now my testosterone level is just about out of control, and I'm just going to -- might well become the typical man that just takes advantage of the most beautiful, gorgeous woman on this or any other island.

Greenlee: When? Once the bonfire's built?

Jake: Damn straight. Look, look, Greenlee, I'm serious, all right? I -- you know I want you.

Greenlee: I'll gather kindling and brush, and you deal with the heavy stuff. Okay, hero?

Jake: All right.

Greenlee: Jake, I'm glad I'm here with you.

Jake: Oh, man. This is too much.

[Music plays]

Dixie: J.R.?

Singer: Do you see me? Can you see me shine?

Dixie: Hello!

J.R.: Hey -- hey, Mom.

Dixie: Hi.

J.R.: What? You got that --

[Dixie turns off music]

J.R.: We-need-to-talk look, but I've got to get this done for tomorrow.

Dixie: How do you watch videos and listen to music and study at the same time?

J.R.: It helps me concentrate. Besides, this is due tomorrow morning.

Dixie: What are you writing about?

J.R.: How the trials of Sacco and Vanzetti affected civil liberties.

Dixie: Oh, I'm impressed.

J.R.: Yeah, well, don't be. There's -- there's this girl in my American history class, and she's this huge ACLU radical, so I figured this would be the best way to go.

Dixie: I don't know if I can do this.

J.R.: Do what? Mom, what's wrong?

Anna: I don't know why I gave you so much credit. I talked myself into believing you were human and that these clever games we played made us into sophisticated grownups.

David: Hmm, and you aren't? So it was just an act to hook me in, reel me in, is that it?

Anna: Oh, we both know I'm not some naive schoolgirl, hankering after gardenia-scented prom nights or heart-shaped bathtubs filled with champagne!

David: Your school must have been far more progressive than mine was.

Anna: Yeah, no doubt. However experienced I am, David, I'm a woman. I can only take so much. You pushed me over the edge. I mean, no self-respecting woman is going to stand around and watch her man brought to his knees for the 87th time by a timid little hausfrau like Dixie.

David: You can learn a hell of a lot from her.

Anna: What? How to turn you into a lovesick blob? I'm not interested in that.

David: Dixie is the picture of strength and honest-to-God courage, and I will never, ever apologize for or defend my caring for her.

Anna: That's great, that's great.

David: But -- but it doesn't come close to my feelings for you. In fact, I think for the first time that I might even --

Anna: Don't expect me to beg you to finish that sentence, David. Don't.

David: I don't expect anything from you, Devane. You want to go? Go ahead. But I don't want you to.

Anna: You don't?

David: No. In fact, I think it would be a big mistake. Look, if I am responsible for your anger, if I am the reason why you're so upset, then I'm -- I'm -- I'm sorry.

Maggie: "Vanessa -- evil." You brought her here, didn't you? You set her up to go after Erica Kane's daughter, and then poor Frankie actually fell in love with her.

Vanessa: Well, I actually did them both a favor, didn't I, dear? You know, well, you should know. I mean, I offered Mary Frances a way out of her dead-end life, a chance to really make something of herself.

Maggie: You lured her here, and she was murdered!

Vanessa: Oh, that was a shame! Oh, I never intended for that to happen. And as for Bianca Montgomery, well, she at least found love, didn't she, albeit a very fleeting one.

Maggie: Something else was really wrong with Frankie's life before the shooting, wasn't it?

Vanessa: Well, was it? I mean, is there another little master code or clue I missed in the little book?

Maggie: I know that she had problems, and I know that you were at the heart of it, so you better tell me!

Vanessa: My dear, I was not your sister's confidante. I wanted to be. I really did. But she was hell-bent on betraying me. Hmm.

Maggie: Betraying you how?

Vanessa: Oh-oh! See, I just could not let that happen because I've learned over years and years of experience that you tolerate rebellion, and the whole world falls apart.

Maggie: Oh, you are going to pay for this.

Vanessa: You've just triggered one of my migraines. Thank God I happen to have a perfect antidote.

Maggie: Well, I am going to take this to Erica Kane and the district attorney and they are going to slam you!

Vanessa: Oh, shut up, shut up, shut up! Your obnoxious little babbling is driving me to distraction! My dear, my dear, did you hear me say I was in pain? Did you? Keep your big, fat mouth shut.

Maggie: You know, maybe Frankie didn't mean anything to you, but you are not going to get away with this.

Vanessa: You really think I would kill family? Never, never. I have boundaries. I have scruples, my dear. Why -- why do you think I do all this? You have no idea the pain I carry around inside every waking hour.

Maggie: Is that what the syringe is for? Your pain?

Vanessa: In a way -- in a way because what it does, it gives me peace of mind. It keeps people from talking that want to talk too much. It keeps people who would destroy the entire operation --

Maggie: Whole operation? You mean, there's more to just conning Erica?

Vanessa: Oh, darling, why would somebody kill just to have the penny ante little payoff like that?

Maggie: Oh, my gosh. You did do it. You killed her. You did do it.

Vanessa: Shh. You know, it's just like that Frankie. It's just like that Frankie to go around throwing around an expression that she doesn't even begin to understand. She -- calling me evil! You know, she thinks -- evil. If she wants evil, I'll introduce her to -- incarnate, no, you -- no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Now, please don't move, dear. You move and you die. Now I want you to walk over here. Sit down. Sit down. Relax, while I consider what my next move is going to be.

Maggie: I can't believe it. I -- I thought you brought Frankie here, but I never, never thought that you killed her.

Vanessa: Oh, dear God, dear God. I suppose in every life, a little rain must fall, but you and your sister are my endless monsoon! I did not kill Frankie. That was a tragic, dreadful, tragic mistake.

Maggie: "Mistake"? How can murder be a mistake?

Vanessa: Well, you take it in context, dear. All right, have you ever seen a film called "Beckett"?

Maggie: You want to talk movies?

Vanessa: I'm sure your taste runs more to Adam Sandler, but, dear, I want you to just humor me now, okay?

Chris: Wait a minute. Just wait. Did the lab double-check the results? So the same needle mark that was found on Officer Sweeney is exactly the same as the one found on Santos' prison guard? Does it prove that the heart attacks were induced? Well, that brings us a little big closer to Proteus, doesn't it?

Mateo: Hey, we'll get through this. We'll get our life back just like it was before.

Hayley: Before you started getting a rush from living on the edge? I saw you in there talking to Chris about this case. You know how pumped you were getting? Like you were getting a rush.

Mateo: I just want to catch Proteus. I want to get him for what he's done to us.

Hayley: Yeah, but our lives are never going to be the same again after this. Our lives will feel like a prison to you because, I mean, face it, Mateo, after everything we've been through, you taking drink orders at SOS is hardly going to cut it for you.

Mateo: All right, look, if you want me off the case, I'll go break it to Chris, okay? Fine. Done.

Hayley: I mean, it's already a part of you, isn't it?

Mateo: What if I say it is?

Hayley: Well, I mean, then it is and that's who you are. I don't want you to be something you're not for me. I would never ask you to be something you're not for me.

Mateo: Ditto.

Leo: Thank you. Okay, there you go. I got you a beer. There's a mint, all right? And I need you to do me a favor.

Man: I've sailed every inch of the Atlantic coast. I know more about sailing than most men forget.

Leo: Yeah, that's right. That's why I hired you, because you're the expert. Okay, I need you to focus, all right?

Man: On what?

Leo: I need you to tell me where you would take a nice young lady if you were going to sail off to, like, a paradise, you know, fun, adventure. Where would you take her?

Woman: Excuse me.

Leo: I need you to --

Woman: I'm looking for Leo du Pres.

Leo: That's me. You must be Kate Hale. It's a pleasure to meet you.

Kate: It might be if we weren't meeting here.

Leo: Yeah, I know. I'm sorry about this. I want you to meet our flight plan.

Kate: I don't pilot for drunks.

Leo: No, no, I'm going to be your only passenger. He's just going to tell us where we need to go, that's all.

Kate: Not that I don't need the charter, but you think this is a good idea?

Leo: Look, I'm looking for a couple of friends of mine that bought a boat from this guy, okay? I figured we could just fly over the immediate area and see the lights from the boat. You know what I mean? He's just going to tell us where we need to go, that's all.

Kate: A night flight is 50% over my original quote.

Leo: Okay. That's -- that's fine.

Kate: I'll need a security deposit covering 3/4 of your estimated flight time.

Leo: All right, that's okay.

Kate: Cash or certified check?

Leo: You know what? I've got something even better, all right? I got two first-class tickets to Spain -- Barcelona.

Man: I know the coast of Spain like the back of your hand.

Kate: Whatever your game is, count me out. Adios, loco hombres. It hasn't been fun.

Leo: Wait -- just --

Jake: Well, it looks like you're either lost in thought or exhausted.

Greenlee: Some of both, I guess. Were there Eagle Scout badges for fixing elevators, swimming while towing unconscious females, and building bonfires? Or is that just a genetic gift?

Jake: Well, actually, you see, when I was a kid, there were correspondence courses, but now I just log on-line to rescuechicks.com.

Greenlee: Liar. It comes naturally to you, doesn't it? You really are wonderful, Jake.

Jake: Yeah, you're darn right. You know, you may be sitting next to the world's most perfect man right now. But listen, I don't want you to feel unworthy or anything like that because out of all the babes on this island, I chose you.

Greenlee: You need a few lessons in humility.

Jake: Right, Greenlee. Now who am I going to get that from? Not you, of course.

Greenlee: Oh, go ahead; be as conceited as you want to be. I may not be the best teacher in the world, but can I show you something?

Jake: What?

Greenlee: How incredibly grateful I am? And how happy that you saved my life?

Jake: You know what? I think we maybe ought to try to stay focused on the task at hand.

Greenlee: The bonfire's built.

Jake: It's not lit.

Greenlee: That's what I'm trying to do.

Jake: Greenlee, Greenlee, Greenlee. We have to get the bonfire ready to go so if a plane flies overhead, they'll look down and see us, and we'll get off this island.

Greenlee: Well, how we going to do that?

Jake: Well, Tondalayo and Tarzan make fire.

Greenlee: This is way too reality programming for me. No bug eating, though, okay? Jake?

Jake: Huh?

Greenlee: No bug eating.

Jake: No way. Not unless it's absolutely necessary.

Greenlee: Look at -- it looks as if you've got it.

Jake: Put your hands around there and cup that tinder just a little bit.

Greenlee: Like this?

Jake: There you go. Don't even breathe.

David: You are going to say something, aren't you?

Anna: I think I had a slight stroke. Did I hear you correctly?

David: Well, you better have because I'm not going to repeat it.

Anna: No, no, don't joke. Did you say -- "sorry"?

David: Anna, I know I dump a lot your way, and I realize you're not crazy about Dixie, but --

Anna: No, no, it's not Dixie, really. It's the way you treat her. I mean, she's not a spun sugar Madonna. She doesn't float above the earth. She slogs through the mud like the rest of us with less humor and grace than a lot of people, let me remind you.

David: Dixie is leaving Pine Valley. That's why she came here, to ask for my help. Now, I realize that you never need help from anybody on anything, so of course, that wouldn't occur to you.

Anna: Oh, a tough girl like me, never.

David: Dixie and I are -- we're nothing. Anna, notice who I'm always with when things turn ugly. Look, I know that I -- I don't talk about it often, but I realize you're always there, and I appreciate it.

Anna: Ding-ding. I declare this fight officially over, okay?

David: Totally.

Anna: Yeah.

David: Good.

Anna: Isn't that one of the things you admire about me? I fight like a man right upfront, and then when it's over, it's over.

David: You make up like a woman. That's what I like the most.

Anna: David, thank you for saying all those things. I don't need a lot of reassurance, but I do need some.

David: Of course you do. We all do. When you stormed out on me earlier, I felt -- I felt alone.

Anna: Dixie was here.

David: Mm-hmm. And I still felt alone.

Anna: Any other confessions you'd like to make?

David: Yeah. I confess that I want us to shut up.

Anna: Oh, me, too. Me, too.

J.R.: So should I call a doctor or something?

Dixie: No, no, I'm fine, really. I'm just -- just a little sad, that's all.

J.R.: Why? Were you with Tad?

Dixie: No, no, no. There's something I have to do that I have mixed feelings about.

J.R.: So don't do it. You're an adult.

Dixie: Right. You know, when I got pregnant with you, I was practically a child. I was really young and really confused and -- and then I found out that you were on the way, and it just made everything clear. I knew who I was. I knew what I wanted to do. The most important thing in the world to me was this wonderful new life that was coming into being -- your life.

J.R.: Did I mention the report? It's due tomorrow.

Dixie: I'm not doing this very well, am I?

J.R.: Mom, you're creeping me out here. Can we -- can this wait, please?

Dixie: No, it can't. I'm sorry. Sweetie, I'm going to have to leave for a while.

J.R.: Why? Did Tad say something? If Dr. Hayward even --

Dixie: No, he didn't, and, no, no, this has nothing to do with them. I made this decision totally on my own, okay? And it took me a long time to make, and I know this is going to be hard for you to understand. Listen, it seems that I've -- you know, your mom -- I've sort of lost focus about who I am -- these two crazy men in my life -- and they're both wonderful in their own way -- but they've really treated me like I'm some kind of child, making all sorts of decisions for me -- you know, like not telling me that I'm ill or not telling me that I'm in danger, and I know they really meant well, but they were big decisions affecting my life, and I can't have that.

J.R.: So then, tell them to get out.

Dixie: Well, I have, but I have to -- I have to get back to being me and get back to being a good mom for you. That's really what's most important to me.

J.R.: But you don't have to go away to do that.

Dixie: No, I -- but here is just not the right place for me right now -- and it is for you, though. I'm not going to ask you to move.

J.R.: Everybody loves you here.

Dixie: But Tad and Adam and David, they're not going to change, and I am determined to, so I'm going to go back to school.

J.R.: You're kidding.

Dixie: No, I'm going to take a six-month course in Europe.

J.R.: You know, this is -- this is nuts. You -- you're having some midlife crisis, so the rest of us, we can just go to hell, is that it, huh?

Dixie: J.R., I've given this a lot of thought, okay? This is a decision that I've made for everybody. It's a -- you have to trust me on this.

Dixie: It's okay. He'll understand. Everything's going to be okay.

Vanessa: Henry revered Beckett. He admired him, but there came a time when Henry bemoaned the fact, darling, that, well, Beckett just became a -- a pain in his side, a thorn -- he said, "Who will remove this thorn from my side"? Well, some of his knights decided to take charge of that, and it was bye-bye, Beckett.

Maggie: So Beckett's Frankie?

Vanessa: Well, listen, darling, Frankie was going to go, yes, to the police and Erica Kane. Oh-oh-oh! And there's a shipment due at Enchantment, you see, and somehow, Frankie had blundered on to the fact that I was involved with frying a few bigger fish than just Erica and Bianca.

Maggie: So you were going to have Frankie killed?

Vanessa: No, no, no. I just happened to mention that to an underling of mine, a very ambitious one, and he overreacted.

Maggie: So you had one of your thugs kill my sister?

Vanessa: Oh. That's ridiculous. I dismissed him immediately, permanently. I was sick over it. I am so sorry. I was in so much pain. I mean, poor Mary Frances. You think I would ever have ended her life like that? No, no. No, I was terribly, terribly, terribly sorry.

Maggie: You're insane. Truly.

Vanessa: Don't you ever say that to me! Don't you ever say that to me, understand? You tell me you didn't mean it. You say it. You just go ahead and say it.

Dixie: Yes, Adam, I will call back. But if J.R. shows up -- no, I -- I want to find J.R. before I talk to you. I will explain later.  Hi, Tad? I need to see you.

Anna: Oh, I never told you what I came here to say.

David: Shut up. I don't want you to say anything that's going to jeopardize your career.

Anna: Well, I have a tendency to exaggerate.

David: No, you don't.

Anna: I do.

David: I don't want your career tanking for me, okay?

Anna: I think it's a little late for that. I threw in with you ages ago.

David: Which makes me the luckiest man on God's green earth.

Greenlee: Fire! Fire! Look! Fire! Aha! Let there be light! Let there be --

Jake: Greenlee, try to contain your excitement. Now, if somebody would only fly over tonight and see us, we'll be on our way home.

Kate: One minute, I am scrounging around for charters, the next, I get your call. And now we're going to Barcelona.

Leo: That's right. As soon as we find Jake and Greenlee, we are.

Kate: I find your devotion fantastically attractive.

Leo: Oh, thank you. So, I'll follow you to the airport, okay?

Kate: Going to all that trouble just because your sister left on the sailboat without her asthma medicine. Does Greenlee have any idea how lucky she is to have a brother like you?

Leo: Well, I guess I'll tell her when I see her. Oh, let me get that. Thank you.

Chris: So, you two guys work things out?

Hayley: You mean, if we've decided what to do about you? Yes.

Mateo: We'll work with you. We'll give you what we have on Proteus.

Chris: "We"?

Mateo: Yeah. Hayley and I. We're in this together. We'll give you the proof.

Hayley: Namely, a computer disk.

Mateo: Yeah, and it puts Proteus' fingerprints all over the money laundering I did for him.

Chris: Where can I find it?

Mateo: You can't.

Hayley: We can, but it'll cost you.

Chris: What do you want?

Mateo: We want in. When you spring on Proteus, Hayley and I are there.

Chris: Done.

Hayley: Excellent. The disk is safe and sound with Ryan Lavery.

Chris: Hayley, shut up.

Maggie: Okay, I didn't mean it! I didn't mean it! You're not --

Vanessa: Yeah -- I'm not insane, no, no, no, because you know what? "Insane" -- that word denotes someone who's out of control, and I am never out of control. Never, never, never. I'm a topflight businesswoman, never out of control. I didn't choose this -- I didn't choose this life. This was forced on me, Mary Margaret. Do you understand that? You know, forced on me. Like the bard said, "It was really thrust upon me!" No, no, no. No, no. Oh, my God. Ow! Ow! Ow!
