>> Previously on "All My Children" --

Erica: I don't want to lose you again.

Chris: You won't, ever.

Kendall: There is something that I've always wanted to do that I've never done.

Ryan: All right, tell me.

Kendall: I've never been on a picnic with a guy.

Mia: You want to work out old relationship issues, go right ahead. I'm not going to stick around.

David: There's something else going on with you. What are you running from?

Leo: Greenlee. I can't keep running into Greenlee.

[The Valley Inn bar]

Erica: Thank you.

Opal: Hey, there!

Erica: Opal, hi.

Opal: How was madcap Manhattan?

Erica: Oh, marvelous. Opal: "Marvelous"?

Erica: Marvelous!

Opal: Oh, and now you're going to tell me that's the reason for this glow?

Erica: Oh, you mean I look as good as I feel?

Opal: Well, I will let Chris tell you how fantabulous you look. When he's showing up?

Erica: Any minute.

Opal: Well, then, quick, tell me, 10 words or less, how is ODK going? Operation Dump Kendall?

Erica: Oh. Oh, Opal, my life is so great, I'm even thinking I'm going to cancel it.

Opal: You're going to let her walk -- well, in her case slither?

Erica: I'm just at a point where -- I don't know -- I'm willing to consider the possibility that maybe she's reformed.

[Myrtle's board house - Bianca walks downstairs with a gift]

Kendall: Ah, for me? You shouldn't have.

Bianca: Which is maybe why I didn't.

Kendall: The party is someplace else? Well, here. Have fun.

[Kendall hands Bianca two bottles of champagne]

Bianca: Gee. Why so generous?

Kendall: I was supposed to go on a picnic with Ryan --

Bianca: But?

Kendall: Canceled on account of whatever.

Bianca: It's a lousy day for a picnic, anyway. And thanks a lot, but I don't really drink.

Kendall: So pass them along to your friends. Champagne's for parties. Beer is for crying into.

Bianca: So, is that your plan for tonight?

Kendall: Heck, no. Come on, Binks. Dance on the wild side. Come on. Forget the virgin Pina Coladas and pop open a bottle of champagne. Go ahead.

Bianca: All right, all right. You only live once, right?

Kendall: If you're lucky.

Bianca: Thank you.

Kendall: You're welcome. Have fun.

Bianca: Good night.

Opal: Now, wait a minute. Are you telling me that you are about to clasp that viper to your bosom?

Erica: Opal, I'm not going to clasp her anywhere.

Opal: Well, thank goodness. You had me worried there for a second.

Erica: It's just -- Chris said something so sweet. He said that there's part of me in her and, so, therefore, she can't be all bad.

Opal: Well, I fully expected to be riding a flying pig to Paris before I'd see the two of you peacefully co-existing.

Erica: Chris has been lobbying for a truce.

Opal: Oh, I see now. So it's Mr. Tall, dark, and sexy who's pushing the peace and goodwill.

Erica: He is. And -- I don't know. I just -- I'm very sure that if he found out that I was planning to give Kendall her walking papers, he'd never forgive me, Opal.

[Chris peeks around a corner and spots Erica with Opal]

Chris: Erica.

Erica: Yes?

Chris: You stay put. I want to come to you.

[Chris starts walking to Erica with the aid of crutches]

Kendall: Figures I plan a picnic, it's going to be in wind and damp and mud. Ugh!

[Doorbell rings]

Kendall: Ok, whatever you are selling, you will be wearing it right out of -- here.

Ryan: Think I'll look good in wicker?

[Chandler Mansion - Mia opens the front door]

Mia: What do you want, Jake?

Jake: That's easy -- you.

Mia: You mean that?

Jake: If I didn't, I wouldn't say it.

Mia: What about Greenlee?

Jake: I closed the book on Greenlee.

Mia: Yeah. She'll be back.

Jake: Yeah, but I won't. And I want you to come with me right now so I can prove it. You're the one I care about, Mia.

[The boat house]

Greenlee: Leo.

Leo: Greenlee.

Greenlee and Leo: What are you doing here?

Leo: Are you ok?

Greenlee: Yes.

Leo: Because I was a little concerned, the way you tore out of your office earlier.

Greenlee: Oh. That. Yeah. Well, when it's time to go, it's time to go.

Leo: Yeah. Whatever. I didn't know that you were going to be here.

Greenlee: No?

Leo: I'll leave you alone.

Greenlee: Why?

Leo: Why what?

Greenlee: Why are you here?

Leo: Because this place -- this is the place where it all fell apart for us, and I was thinking about you. And I didn't know where else to go.

[The elevator in Trey's building - a tall, dark man corners Trey]

Trey: I've got $180. Here.

Man: What do you think, I'm a panhandler? It's chump change.

Trey: Maybe you ought to mug people in a better neighborhood.

Man: That strike you as being smart, Trey, mouthing off to me?

Trey: How do you know my name?

Man: I know plenty about you. What do you think the people around here would do if they found out who you really are?

Leo: I better go.

Greenlee: No. Maybe we have to deal with why we keep being drawn together. Maybe it's some karmic thing. We just keep thinking about each other, so -- like magnets.

Leo: And that's unacceptable.

Greenlee: I can't go on living like this. Can you?

Leo: No, no, I can't. Not like this. I see two ways out.

Greenlee: Go on.

Leo: We say good-bye forever and I -- I don't know -- I move out to the west coast or somewhere.

Greenlee: Or?

Leo: Or you give us one last chance. I vote for plan B. How about you?

Opal: Well, congratulations. Look at you.

Chris: Thank you.

Erica: Oh, Chris, you're wonderful.

Chris: Yeah, well, it's all about motivation. Opal: Yeah, I guess you got a pretty good motive right there, huh?

Chris: Yeah.

Opal: Well, I'm going to leave the two of you to your romantic dinner.

Chris: No, no, no, Opal, you don't have to run off.

Erica: Yes, she does. I want you all to myself.

Opal: All right, well, congrats. You lovebirds have a good time.

Chris: Bye.

Opal: Bye-bye.

Erica: Bye.

Chris: You want to help me?

Erica: Yes.

[Erica holds the chair while Chris sits down]

Chris: Thank you. Watch this move. Ahem. Oh, you look happy.

Erica: Oh, I am, deliriously. You have been working so hard.

Chris: Yeah, well, I couldn't disappoint you.

Erica: Oh, you couldn't if you tried.

Chris: Really?

Erica: Really.

Chris: How about that time I tried to bite your head off at the hospital?

Erica: Oh, well, that was not disappointing. That was just infuriating.

Chris: Well, on that note, Dr. Stannart's told me I'm going to make a full recovery. And when I'm back to 100%, you can give me a kick.

Erica: Well, I have other plans for you.

[Erica kisses Chris]

Chris: Hey. Well, with that incentive, I'll be carrying you to the bedroom very, very soon.

Erica: I like the sound of that.

Chris: And we'll make love all night long. How does that sound?

Erica: Sounds like a dream. But listen to me, Chris. Don't -- don't push yourself. I can wait.

Chris: Really? Well, I can't.

Ryan: In addition to classic picnic food -- you know, set the scene a little bit --

Kendall: What are those?

Ryan: Well, come here.

[Ryan throws little, black 'things' at Kendall]

Kendall: Ah -- you freak. You're crazy.

Ryan: Oh, I'm a freak and you're the one afraid of plastic ants? Come on.

Kendall: What are you going to do now, put fake poison ivy around?

Ryan: Hmm, I didn't think of that. How do you feel about birds?

[Now Ryan pulls out a fake tree branch - complete with woodpecker and sound effects]


Kendall: All it does is, like, tap and do that, right?

Ryan: Yeah.

Kendall: It doesn't fly, you know, anything else? Ryan: Absolutely.



Kendall: Ah, nice.

Ryan: So, are you surprised?

Kendall: I thought we were calling this off.

Ryan: Well, we were calling off the outdoor part. The outdoor -- I don't want to be sitting in some wet, soggy grass with the wind blowing, like, 45 miles an hour, my food all over the place.

Kendall: Well, I don't want that, either, but I --

Ryan: What, are you afraid Myrtle's going to come home and it's going to interrupt -- we're going to interrupt her square dancing party or something?

Kendall: Wasn't this an awful lot of trouble for you?

Ryan: Kendall, classic American traditions are worth it. How about our bad weather karma, huh?

Kendall: I wasn't aware we had any kind of karma.

Ryan: Yes. The ballgame got rained out, and now we planned a picnic and it's horrible and windy outside. What, do you think that's a coincidence?

Kendall: Yeah.

Ryan: Well, whatever. We will not be stopped. We have overcomed. Wait -- we overcame. We triumphed! To the classic American picnic. Bread?

Kendall: Ok. So we're going to do all of this whether I want it or not?

Ryan: Well, you don't want me to put all this stuff away, do you?

Kendall: I didn't say that.

Ryan: Are you mad? You're mad.

Kendall: No, I'm not. I just thought we weren't doing this. It's kind of hard to suddenly shift gears, that's all.

Ryan: Well, I mean, you know, it's not really the real thing. But on a nice, sunny day -- here, that's for you --

Kendall: Thanks.

Ryan: We'll take a rain check and we'll do it the right way, ok?

Kendall: We could have waited.

Ryan: Yes, but, you see, the one thing that I've learned is if you keep putting off things that you enjoy doing, more often than not, they don't get done. People change plans, they leave town, or -- I don't know.

Kendall: People forget to do what they promised?

Ryan: Ooh. That won't be me, Kendall. I'm not going to let you down.

Greenlee: One last chance?

Leo: I know that nothing's changed as far as Vanessa's concerned.

Greenlee: Gee, you mean she's not my new best friend?

Leo: And she's still completely whacked out. And I know that we can't predict what she's going to do in the future.

Greenlee: I can.

Leo: And that terrifies you. Greenlee, I understand that.

Greenlee: I wish I did. This isn't simple, Leo. Nothing about us has ever been easy.

Leo: Well, maybe that's why we worked before. You know, because easy isn't a challenge.

Greenlee: No, it's not.

Leo: And you got to admit, Greenlee, that we work better under a challenge, right? I mean, it's almost like we're plugged in. Come on. Please just say yes.

Greenlee: This is too much pressure.

Leo: I know that I shouldn't have attacked Trey, but he's such a smug little -- what I'm trying to say is that you've seen too much violence lately thanks to me.

Greenlee: Vanessa's provided more than enough for several lifetimes.

Leo: And now I'm asking you to take me back. I must be crazier than Vanessa.

Greenlee: No. No lunatic in any asylum even comes close to your mother.

Leo: Well, then, maybe -- maybe it's a self-destructive thing. Because every time I think that it's going to work with us, I blow it.

Greenlee: No, you don't. In fact, you came through for me in a big way.

Leo: I don't know what you're talking about, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I know what you did for me, Leo, and I love you for it.

[Back in the elevator]

Trey: What, are you going to tell people that Trey is just a nickname? I think they're hip to that.

Man: For your clients' sake, I hope you bluff juries better than this.

Trey: Look, whatever secret you think you know, you're wrong.

Man: Give it up, sonny boy. My sources are strictly reliable. $50,000 Worth.

Trey: You expect to get --

Man: 50 Grand or I spread the word.

Trey: I don't have nearly that amount.

Man: You'll hit the Proteus jackpot soon enough. Only thing is you won't stick around too long after.

Trey: You're n making any sense.

Man: That's why I need my payment upfront. You got one week to come up with the 50 thou.

Trey: I can't possibly --

Man: You can, and you will.

[The man punches Trey in the stomach and runs away]

Man: I'll be in touch.

[A frustrated Trey starts punching the walls of the elevator]

[Maggie's room at the Pine Valley Inn]

[Knock on door]

Bianca: Hi.

Maggie: Hey.

Bianca: Are you alone?

Maggie: Yeah.

Bianca: Well, it's kind of weird, right? I mean, today?

Maggie: Frankie's birthday. Come in.

Bianca: Oh, thanks.

Maggie: You know, I've been playing "what if" since sunup.

Bianca: Right. Well, we can't will Frankie back, but sort of feels like she's here sometimes, right?

Maggie: Yeah, sometimes. Can't wait for this day to be over.

Bianca: No way. Come on, it's your birthday, too. Let's celebrate.

Leo: What did I do to make you so grateful?

Greenlee: Simone told me that you turned down the book offer.

Leo: Oh, that.

Greenlee: You gave up a lot.

Leo: Greenlee, come on now. I'd give up millions for you. But that's not the problem, is it? Is it?

Greenlee: I never found out why you came by my office.

Leo: Because I just couldn't let us go like we never had anything. You know what I mean?

Greenlee: You were going to ask me --

Leo: Or plead with you or tell you just to let this ride out for a little bit.

Greenlee: Instead, you attacked Trey.

Leo: There's that self-destructive thing that I was talking about earlier. Greenlee, I -- I've been thinking a lot about us. And it makes me sick when I think about all of the stuff that I've put you through and the number of ways that I've hurt you. And I worked up this desperate high, thinking that I was going to swoop into your office to make this grandstand play and turn everything around, and, you know, make the impossible possible, that I was actually going to get you back.

Greenlee: I wanted us to be possible before --

Leo: And then what do I do when I get there? I screw everything up again.

Greenlee: No, no, it's not just you. I lie awake at night wondering what I want for my life. Safe seemed the way to go, but it's just not me.

Leo: Ok, you're giving me some hope here, Greenlee. Please don't make me crash --

Greenlee: The thing is this is it, Leo. It truly, completely is our last chance. No more back and forth. I can't take it. But I also can't take letting you go without one final chance to make it work.

Leo: Did you just say yes?

Greenlee: I think so.

Leo: So we're back on again? Oh, my God, this is too good to be true.

Greenlee: Well, there is one catch.

Leo: Oh --

Greenlee: No, I mean, you know it. Just wishing it won't make it so. Just because we want this to work --

Leo: Look, the final result isn't a done deal. I understand that.

Greenlee: But, you know, the one thing is we're incredibly smart and talented people who should be able to make it --

Leo: Ah --

Greenlee: For the long haul.

Leo: So you have been thinking about us, haven't you?

Greenlee: I even went to Jake like you told me to. And it hit me, you know -- Jake is a great guy. He is really an incredible person.

Leo: Just what I wanted to hear.

Greenlee: Every time I needed a shoulder to lean on, he was there. His advice was great and his love for me was completely sincere.

Leo: Greenlee, you're not exactly building my confidence here.

Greenlee: Let me finish. He was always so ready to just shore me up that I confused feeling safe and secure for love.

Leo: Ok, wait, wait. Hold on. Go back to the confused part again?

Greenlee: I told you that I love you and Jake.

Leo: Right.

Greenlee: Wrong. I was completely misinterpreting my feelings.

Leo: For Jake?

Greenlee: Yes. I wasn't in love with him. I was grateful and I was more than willing to let him take care of me. But the sparks weren't there, Leo. Ever.

Leo: Spark?

Greenlee: Spontaneous combustion. Jake's romantic interests lie elsewhere, and I don't care. But the thought of you moving on was, like, mental food poisoning, Leo.

Leo: So, where does Trey fit into all this?

Greenlee: I told you, Trey's a friend. He's a legal connection.

Leo: And the fact that he rescued you from Vanessa --

Greenlee: I want you, Leo. Trey's not even worth mentioning.

[The elevator door opens - - Mia and Jake see a visibly upset Trey inside]

Mia: What are you doing in here?

Trey: Oh. Hey, that was unbelievable.

Jake: Want to tell us why you're ripping apart the elevator?

Mia: Trey, what's going on? Do you know him?

Jake: This is Vanessa Cortlandt's attorney.

Trey: I thought I was going to be stuck in that thing all night.

Jake: We didn't hear the alarm ring.

Trey: It didn't work.

[Jake reaches inside the elevator and pushes the alarm button]

[Alarm rings]

Jake: Well, it seems to be working now.

Trey: The power went on right before the doors opened. Claustrophobia really kicked in.

Mia: Oh, yeah. You told me that you got stuck with three people in here once, remember?

Trey: Three?

Jake: Yeah.

Trey: Talk about a panic attack.

Jake: Yeah, let's go upstairs. Come on.

Trey: You live here, Mia?

Mia: No, I don't.

Jake: I do.

Trey: Well, we'll be seeing a lot of each other. I'm your new neighbor.

Jake: Yeah. See you around.

Trey: Hold on a sec.

Jake: What? Now what do you want?

Trey: Well, unless you want to get stuck in the elevator again, you might want to take the stairs.

Ryan: Ok, so tell me the truth, all right? How does it look?

Kendall: It looks white.

Ryan: Well, mayonnaise is considered its own food group in some parts of the world.

Kendall: Not in any parts I've lived in.

Ryan: This coming from a woman whose idea of heaven is corn dogs and cotton candy?

Kendall: I'm sorry. I know you went through a lot of trouble for this. I do. I appreciate it. You know what? Myrtle has chips in the kitchen. We could use some.

Ryan: Ok. All right, I'll get them. Don't touch my food.

Kendall: I won't.

[Kendall starts spooning her potato salad back into the container]

Kendall: Oh, nasty. Ugh.

Ryan: Hey! I saw that.

Kendall: Oops.

Ryan: Ok. All right, that's fine. I can take a hint -- you don't like my food.

Kendall: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. It's just anything with mayonnaise -- it's a texture thing.

Ryan: Well, then, why didn't you say so?

Kendall: Well, you went through all this trouble. I didn't want to hurt your feelings.

Ryan: I didn't make this stuff. I bought it at a deli.

Kendall: Ok, so other than eating slippery food, what else do we do on picnics?

Ryan: Play Frisbee.

Kendall: Oh, Myrtle would love that.

Ryan: Wow. Tough crowd. There's always football.

Kendall: That's it?

[Ryan pulls out a Nerf football and throws it at Kendall]

Ryan: What do you mean, "that's it"? It's fun. Good hands.

Kendall: Thanks. You are so disturbed, it's not even funny.

Ryan: Yes, I am. All right. I guess you're not into that, either. I'm telling you --

Kendall: Ok, you know what? I have to say my curiosity for picnics has been satisfied. They are boredom fests.

Ryan: What are you talking -- that's so not true. Once we get outside in the sun and the real trees --

Kendall: Ryan --

Ryan: Get a little sunburned --

Kendall: Ryan --

Ryan: What?

Kendall: Dirt and heat and real bugs swimming in the mayo would not be a plus, believe me.

Ryan: Ok. That's fine. I guess my picnic's a wash. That's ok.

Kendall: Will you stop? You know what? It was my idea. I take full responsibility for it.

Ryan: Well, next time you have a lousy idea, you give me a call and we'll try again next time, all right?

Kendall: I bet if we tried real hard, we could come up with an alternate plan.

Ryan: Well, you got anything in mind?

Kendall: Don't you?

Ryan: Huh. Well --

[Ryan and Kendall kiss]

Kendall: Well, what do you know? Great minds think alike.

Ryan: Hmm. Yes, they do. Pickles.

[Ryan and Kendall lay down on the 'picnic' blanket]

Kendall: Did I mention that we have the whole house to ourselves tonight?

[Ryan and Kendall start kissing and one thing leads to another - - - - almost]

[Chris and Erica walk into Myrtle's front room]

Chris: Erica, don't say a word. Ryan! Kendall! On behalf of your mother and me, you two are so grounded.

Ryan: Ah --

Chris: This is not what we expected to walk in on.

Kendall: Walk- walking -- Chris, where's your chair?

Chris: I sold it for scrap metal.

Ryan: What are you -- you're not even using it at all anymore?

Chris: Nope.

Erica: Nope. Oh, he's making wonderful progress.

Ryan: Congratulations!

Kendall: Oh, great.

Chris: Thank you.

Ryan: That's fantastic. Let's have a champagne toast.

Kendall: Champagne?

Erica: Well, just sparkling water for me.

Chris: I never refuse free champagne.

Ryan: Well, good, because it's pretty good stuff and we got lots of it. Where are the bottles? In the fridge?

Kendall: Well, when I thought we canceled the picnic, I gave it to another boarder.

Ryan: What do you mean, another boarder? The only other boarder here other than Chris is --

Erica: Is Bianca. But you couldn't have given the champagne to Bianca because she's underage. You did? You gave alcohol to my teenaged daughter?

Kendall: Your other daughter is a good girl, ok? Bianca's not like you and me, Erica. She doesn't get into trouble.

[The 'good' daughter is slightly drunk - as is Maggie]

Bianca: Is it me, or did this go awfully fast?

Maggie: Well, today is a very special day. And the one thing Frankie loved was a party!

Bianca: Oh, God. We should eat something.

Maggie: Oh, no, you're not sick. The bathroom's back there.

Bianca: I'm not sick, and I don't want to be sick, ok? For you.

[Bianca gives Maggie a cupcake with one candle in it]

Maggie: Aw. Bianca: I brought another

one. [candle] I was hoping that you wouldn't think it was too creepy.

Maggie: Oh, you brought one for Frankie, too.

Bianca: Yeah, because, you know, sometimes it's like she's still here.

Maggie: Yeah. Definitely put it in.

Bianca: I'm glad you don't think it's too weird.

Maggie: Hello. Who are you talking to? My family defines dysfunction. Mmm.

Bianca: Make a wish.

Maggie: Like that'll work.

Bianca: Oh, my God, are you channeling Frankie? She s really anti-wish, too.

Maggie: Bianca, we're realists. Come on. Wishing doesn't get you anywhere in our family, you know, and begging doesn't, either. Fighting works sometimes, but, well, running -- running works the best.

Bianca: Well, I got Frankie to wish.

Maggie: Sure, but did it work?

Bianca: Yeah. Yeah, we both got our wish for a little while. So, come on. Live dangerously. Just make a wish.

Leo: Ok, it's just a week ago I represented a death sentence for you because of Vanessa. Can you really get past that?

Greenlee: If I want to be truly happy, I have to. And I can't punish you or myself for what she did.

Leo: Greenlee, you're asking an awful lot of yourself.

Greenlee: That's my decision, Leo, and I've never felt better about anything than I do in this minute.

Leo: But the reality is --

Greenlee: The reality is that we can't predict the future. Will I step off the curb and get hit by a truck? Will I get some horrible, incurable disease?

Leo: Greenlee, don't even say stuff like that.

Greenlee: You know what? We have to live every moment with all the excitement and joy that we can get out of it. And I can't do that with anyone but you, and I wouldn't even want to try. So ready or not, here I am, coming into your life forever, because I love what you do to me and I love who I am when I'm with you because I love you so, so much.

Jake: Greenlee knows it's over.

Mia: Yeah, sure, until the next time she gets her hair caught in the blender.

Jake: She doesn't know how to work a blender.

Mia: Oh. Well, then, she'll definitely want you to show her.

Jake: And I won't. Believe me.

Mia: I want to. But I tell you -- whew -- she loves you riding to her rescue.

Jake: Well, I've put the old white charger out to pasture.

Mia: What if I'm in trouble?

Jake: Well, you, on the other hand, are smart enough, resourceful enough, and independent enough to keep that big bad dragon at bay until I can reach you by car.

Mia: But you'd show up eventually, right?

Jake: I'll always show up.

[Jake hands Mia a piece of paper]

Mia: Ooh -- your beeper number.

Jake: I want you to use it anytime.

Mia: Is this, like, supposed to prove that I have the edge on Greenlee?

Jake: Greenlee is completely out of the romantic picture. And I want you to let me convince you of that.

Mia: You're doing a pretty good job so far

[Mia's cell phone rings]

Mia: Hope it's not Greenlee. Hello.

Trey: Hello again, Mia. It's Trey.

Mia: Oh, hi.

Trey: I'm sorry to bother you, but I've got to see you.

Mia: Uh -- when?

Trey: Now.

Mia: I can't. It's not really a good time.

Trey: Mia, it's about the baby.

Erica: You deliberately gave alcohol to my teenaged daughter?

Chris: Erica, just because Kendall gave Bianca some champagne --

Erica: How much? How much did you give her?

Kendall: Two bottles.

Chris: Erica, that doesn't mean she drank any of it.

Ryan: Bianca is not into alcohol, is she?

Chris: Look, Erica, she's the most levelheaded kid I ever met.

Ryan: You know what? Why don't we talk to Bianca before we all come down on Kendall, all right?

Erica: That is a good idea, yes. Bianca! Honey, Bianca, will you come down here for a minute, please?

Kendall: She went out.

Erica: Ok. So you're saying that you gave her two bottles of champagne, and she took it upstairs, and then she went out?

Kendall: She took the bottles with her.

Erica: Where?

Kendall: I don't know.

Erica: You don't know? So Bianca has taken two bottles of champagne and now she's behind the wheel of a car? How could you do that, Kendall? Kendall: Hey, she took them.

That was her decision to take them. She's not 5 anymore, Erica, ok, so just stop carrying on.

Erica: Oh!

[Erica starts to slap Kendall but Ryan steps between them]

Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa -- ok, ok. All right, all right.

Bianca: Open your present.

Bianca: I didn't know what else to get you.

[The gift is a picture of Frankie and Bianca in a frame]

Maggie: Thank you.

Bianca: It must be like looking in a mirror, huh?

Maggie: No. Frankie and I were completely different. Ah, Frankie was lucky, Bianca -- in spite of everything that happened.

Bianca: How?

Maggie: She had you.

Bianca: No. I was the lucky one. I'm never going to get used to missing her and feeling like she's still right here.

Maggie: I guess that's what love does.

Greenlee: You have my heart, Leo.

Leo: I want to be worthy of that, Greenlee.

Greenlee: It's ok to be nervous. This may be the biggest decision either of us makes. And for the record, I have some butterflies the size of Pterodactyls in my stomach.

Leo: It feels right, doesn't it?

Greenlee: Yeah. We've never been a cozy, contented couple.

Leo: Yeah, we're more volcanic.

Greenlee: Yeah, like the best fireworks. And we shouldn't run away from that. That's who we are.

Leo: Oh, it definitely is when we're together. I know that I'm right about this. I just want to be sure that you are.

Greenlee: I told you why I'm saying yes.

Leo: I just don't want you to regret this.

Greenlee: Will you stop it? I know what I'm doing.

Leo: Look, if I could make you 100% positive that this was going to make you happy, then, Greenlee, I would.

Greenlee: Will you get over that, Leo? I mean, who wants that? Never to be angry or upset? I mean, can you call that living? Do you know anybody that's ever been happy or smiling all the time? And if you do, can you stand being around them for more than five minutes? I want you, not some brainless, empty-hearted moron. Say you want me, too, or I'm going to go home, buy 20 cats, and have my name legally changed to Miss Greenlee Smythe.

[Greenlee and Leo kiss]

Trey: You remember the baby, Mia.

Mia: That's not funny.

Trey: You're damn right it's not funny.

Mia: I thought we took care of all that.

Trey: So did I, but something just happened. This is serious, Mia.

Mia: What does that mean?

Trey: It means tell Doc Martin good night unless you want something to happen to the boy.

Mia: I'll get back to you.

[Mia hangs up her cell phone]

Jake: Who was that?

Mia: It was nobody. Just forget it.

[Trey talks to himself]

Trey: Big mistake, Mia. Big mistake.
