Greenlee: Ow! Ow! Ryan! It's beautiful.

Ryan: Yeah, I thought you'd like it.

Greenlee: Have I seen it before?

Ryan: Well, if you have, you wouldn't recognize it. It's all you need to be truly happy.

Greenlee: That's goofy. How can a box make you happy?

Ryan: It's what's inside that counts.

Greenlee: Really? What's inside?

Ryan: The secret of love.

Greenlee: The box -- I left the box behind.

[Race car sounds]

Jamie: Damn!

Maggie: That'll teach you to cut me off. Oh, look, you just hit another oil slick. Sorry.

Jamie: That was a strategic move, all right? I -- you saw me dodge the 18-wheeler, and --

Maggie: That was luck.

Jamie: Oh, shows what you know. That was pure skill.

Maggie: "Oh, shows what you know." You could have used the bypass lane.

Jamie: Oh, look who feels better. So, what was up with that, anyway? Did you have a fight with Bianca or something?

Maggie: If you're trying to distract me, forget it. For the record, Bianca's never been better.

Kendall: Ahem.

Jack: Hey.

Kendall: Hey.

Jack: Is Reggie not with you?

Kendall: No, he said he'd meet us here.

Jack: Ah.

Kendall: What do you think they'll do, Jack?

Jack: Before or after Alan Singer throws the book at us?

Kendall: Well, what if I just throw myself at him and beg for mercy?

Jack: Oh, I don't know, Kendall. I think Alan's pretty burnt up about losing that murder trial. I'll tell you something. If I know Alan Singer -- and I do -- he's not going to be happy until all three of us are behind bars.

Edmund: I have to go ahead with the surgery, Maria. I'll never forgive myself if I don't.

Jack: Oh, you bet. I always have a plan.

Reggie: Hey, what's up? Where's the firing squad?

Jack: Oh, they're making us wait. It makes them feel like they have an edge, you know?

Reggie: Nobody has an edge on me. I'm not ashamed for what I did for Bianca. And you, too.

Jack: What you did was against the law. What we all did was against the law and nothing to be proud of.

Reggie: What I meant was, I'm ready to step up. But I'm not about to apologize for what I did. I'd do it again, if she needed it.

Kendall: And I feel the same way.

Jack: Yeah. Well, that being said, let's not forget the plan, shall we? I do all the talking, you two say nothing. And that means no volunteering information. That means no out-of-the-blue revelations, that means no trash talk from you. I want you to realize how serious this situation is. Now, do you follow me?

Kendall: What are you going to do, Jack?

[Classical music plays]

Lena: "Arise, and say how thou cam'st here." And then Miranda says, "O, wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O, brave new world, that has such people in it."

Bianca: How much do you love that scene? Miranda is so excited when she finds out all -- about all the other people who exist in the world. Ow! Did you feel that?

Lena: Oh! Is it the Shakespeare, or the music that's making her do that?

Bianca: This feels so right.

Lena: I'm glad you finally got some rest.

Bianca: No, not just that. I mean, a few days ago, I don't think I could have imagined this kind of peace. And now, for the first time in I don't know how long, I feel really and truly happy with my life.

Maggie: Yes! Oh, my God, did you see that? I'm getting really good at this. You know, you better watch out.

Jamie: I don't think this thing works right. So, are you really this mega-focused, or are you ticked off at me?

Maggie: Why would I be ticked off at you?

Jamie: Maybe something I said earlier.

Maggie: Oh -- this is what it looks like to get your butt kicked by a girl.

Jamie: When I mentioned Bianca.

[Sound of wheels screeching]

Maggie: Great. Now I have a flat. I'll deal.

Jamie: So I should just ignore the fact that you were bawling like a baby earlier when we left your apartment?

Maggie: Oh, that.

Jamie: Yes, that. I'm passing you.

Maggie: It was stupid and emotional. Bianca's moving out, you know, when she has the baby. They're getting a house together.

Jamie: So you're going to keep your apartment?

Maggie: Well, I suppose. I mean, her life is about to do a complete 180. You know, baby feedings at 2:00 a.m., changing diapers -- all that stuff. I mean, everything's changing. I'm just going to miss her. You know? I'm -- I'm going to miss us.

Jamie: Yeah, I get it. It's just like me and J.R. I still miss him.

Maggie: Well, I guess that's what life is about, right? Change.

Jamie: Well, for some people. Me -- I'm in college and still live with my mom -- oh, except when I'm with my dad. Oh, look at this! I still have a nitro boost. Oh, you goin' down, sucker.

Maggie: Lovely.

[Sound of acceleration]

Maggie: Here's a concept. I need a roommate.

Jamie: I can ask some of the girls at school.

Maggie: No, you. Yeah, you can live with me.

[Sound of acceleration]

Greenlee: Ryan? Ryan? "Gone for chicken soup and hot chocolate. Back in a flash." Not soon enough, Ryan. I need that box. I have to find it.

Ryan: Greenlee? Greenlee! Where'd you go?

Alan: Oh, good, you're here.

Jack: Oh, good, you're here, too. So you ready to deal?

[Jack chuckles]

Alan: Whoa.

Jack: Yeah, don't bother. That thing's been broken for over a year. I keep putting in requests for repair orders, but you know what the red tape's like here.

Alan: Yes, the wheels of justice do grind.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Alan: Which brings us to the business at hand. Mr. Montgomery -- Ms. Hart, Mr. Reginald Montgomery -- are you represented by counsel?

Jack: Yes, I represent them both. Have a seat.

Alan: And yourself?

Jack: Well, despite the old adage of having a fool for a client, yes, Alan.

Alan: Ok. There's not much you do these days that surprises me anymore. Since we're here to discuss potential plea agreements, I need to be sure you each understand the gravity of the charges against you.

Jack: Before you get started here, let's just have a little reminder. Reggie here is a minor. I don't expect you to be charging him as an adult.

Alan: As long as we're handing out reminders, he's on probation, which compounds the seriousness of all the charges against him. That's quite a little laundry list. "Possession of a handgun in violation of probation -- a felony. Criminal trespass -- a felony. Conspiracy -- a felony. Hindering the prosecution -- a felony. Abuse of a corpse -- a misdemeanor. Tampering with evidence -- a misdemeanor." How are your math skills, Reggie?

Reggie: Four felonies and two misdemeanors.

Alan: Very good. Ms. Hart, the charges against you include the previously mentioned four felonies and two misdemeanors.

Kendall: I understand.

Alan: I've barely scratched the surface. In addition, we'll charge you with perjury, burglary, theft by deception, and intimidation of witnesses -- all felonies. Misdemeanor charges are false swearing, two counts of criminal trespass, and the ever popular unsworn falsification to authorities. How are we doing, young Mr. Montgomery?

Reggie: I lost track.

Alan: I should hope so. As for you, Jack -- your role in this primarily involves the theft and planting of the heroin, so let's start with possession of a controlled substance, which could easily get you 10 years. You know the other charges, all made worse because you're an officer of the court. Which means, upon your felony conviction, you'll be disbarred. If you and Ms. Hart were to face trial in a court of law, you'd easily get 10 to 20 apiece. Reggie could spend the rest of his formative years in a juvenile facility with a probation period that would probably end just in time for his mid-life crisis. Are we all clear on the gravity of the charges here?

Jack: Yeah, Alan, we're clear. But before you really get rolling, I think maybe you should hear what I have to say.

Anita: Excuse me -- you!

Aidan: Hello!

Anita: How do you know --

Aidan: What are you doing here?

Anita: You know Edmund and Maria?

Aidan: Yeah, I do.

Anita: Oh, my --

Aidan: This isn't -- this is not where you work, is it?

Anita: Well, yes, but that's not why. Anita Santos Warner.

Aidan: Maria's younger sister -- I've heard all about you.

Anita: I'm afraid to ask.

Aidan: No, I'm -- I'm Aidan Devane.

Anita: Oh -- I don't think this is a good time for you to be in there. In fact, I'm pretty sure there'll never be a good time.

Aidan: Hang on. Obviously, someone's forgotten to fill you in on the recent history. But Edmund, Maria, and I have dealt with the past.

Anita: Doesn't change my opinion.

Aidan: You don't even know me.

Anita: I respect marriage, Mr. Devane. I don't believe it should be interfered with, ever. You're the last person they need to deal with right now.

Aidan: You're upset.

Anita: They deserve some peace, so please, just leave.

Aidan: If that's what you want. But please do tell Edmund I stopped by to see him. Oh, and about the other day, when you helped me with that flat tire -- you really were a life saver.

Anita: It was no big deal.

Aidan: Well, I just -- I just wanted to make sure that you knew.

Maria: Did you feel that? Did you feel me kiss you? And do you feel this? Can you feel me, Edmund? Can you feel me?

Edmund: Maria, try to understand.

Maria: Edmund, it is this. Do you understand? It's this that I don't want to risk. I don't want to risk this on some off-chance that you might get some sensation back in your legs again. It's when you kiss me, it's when you hold me, it's when you touch me, it's when you -- it's all of that that I won't give up. Ok? I mean, that is what we have. It's so much. It's so much more than some people ever get in their whole life. It's all of that, and this. And I -- it's enough for me. Can it please be enough for you?

[Wind blows]

Ryan: Ooh!

[Greenlee screams]

Greenlee: Are you giving up on me?

Ryan: Greenlee! Greenlee, can you hear me?

Greenlee: You need this. You can do it.

Ryan: Hey. Hey. Hi. Can you please tell me what the hell you were thinking coming up here?

Greenlee: I thought I could do it, Ryan.

Ryan: What?

Greenlee: But then I -- I remembered everything. I can't go back down there.

Ryan: No, you're damn right you can't. Now, come on. I'm going to take you back to the cabin. You're coming with me.

Greenlee: No, no, Ryan, you don't understand. I have to get it. I need it.

Ryan: No --

Greenlee: I need to get it.

Ryan: Listen to me. The only thing you need is to come back with me and get a blanket and a warm fire. You're coming -- oh. Come on. God -- come on. Here we go. I got you.

Jamie: You don't mean you actually want us to live together, right?

Maggie: Why not?

Jamie: Look, Maggie, we're buds, right? And the sex is great, but we're not even remotely close to being in love.

Maggie: God, men are so predictable. Yeah, bud. And no, we're not in love. And yes, the sex is great. But my rent's about to double, so I need a roommate.

Jamie: Roommate -- why didn't you just say that? Huh. Isn't your place kind of cramped?

Maggie: Yes, but actually, there is a two-bedroom that's right across the hall and it's not a lot more money, so that fixes my rent problem. And then it fixes the whole schizoid thing that goes on with you and your parents.

Jamie: And the schizoid things they do with me.

Maggie: No curfew. No "Where were you last night? Why didn't you call me?"

Jamie: That is definitely an improvement.

Maggie: And I can cook. And -- well, we both know that you can really cook. Biggest perk -- no commitment outside of roomie rules. I mean, you know, you can't have my last egg roll, don't take the last diet soda. Don't drink out of the milk carton -- you know, all the stuff that separates us from the great apes.

Jamie: Gotcha. The whole opposable thumb thing.

Maggie: What do you think?

[Knock on door]

Jamie: Pizza.

Bianca: Ah.

Lena: It's true what they say. Pregnant women really do glow.

Bianca: Well, it's finally sinking in that everything is going to be ok. I'm going to have this baby, and she's going to be healthy and safe and beautiful.

Lena: Just as beautiful as her mother, which is very beautiful.

Bianca: You know, this little girl -- the only world that she knows is safe and warm inside her mother's belly, near my heart. She has no idea what's out there. She has no idea all of the people waiting to welcome her into her new world. Just waiting to love her. Just like Miranda in "The Tempest."

Lena: And does that include Erica?

Bianca: I hope so, in time. I know it's going to take my mother a long time to accept this baby. But once she does, I know she's going to learn to love her. She has to. See? Even the baby agrees.

Lena: Oh, my God. Your daughter's already talking back to you.

Bianca: She's going to be here so soon. Oh, my God! We have nothing.

Lena: What? We have everything.

Bianca: No, I -- I mean, I'm not prepared to bring a baby into this house. Just like I was telling Maggie --

Lena: What? Bianca, where are you going?

Bianca: I -- well, I have to go and -- and buy everything -- a stroller, a car seat. They won't even let you bring a baby home from the hospital without a car seat.

Lena: What are you talking about?

Bianca: I need -- I need a --

Lena: Listen -- the baby shower will take care of most of those things.

Bianca: Oh. Have you ever been to a baby shower? Nobody buys you anything practical. Oh, my God -- this is going to cost a fortune.

Lena: Bianca, what are you saying? Your child has just inherited the Cambias Industry. You're the trustee. I doubt that money's ever going to be a problem. Your little girl probably owns some company that makes most of this stuff.

Bianca: Ok, good. Let's just go buy it all, then.

Lena: Ok -- relax. Come here.

Bianca: Oh --

Lena: It's a brave new world. Sit, and click, and never worry about finding the nearest ladies' room.

Bianca: Yeah, like every 10 minutes these days. Wait a minute -- we're already online?

Lena: Uh-huh. Baby supplies.

Bianca: But how did you know --

Lena: I just thought you might want to surf the Net.

Bianca: Oh, my gosh. Babies -- accessories, clothing, furniture. This is amazing.

Jack: The so-called murder of Michael Cambias turned out to be a simple case of self-defense. That means the crimes you're trying to charge us with are victimless crimes. Unless, of course, you consider the corpse of Michael Cambias a victim.

Alan: Don't be disingenuous, Montgomery. Your victims are the people of this community.

Justin: What's going on here? Laws were broken! A man was killed, Alan! Now, somebody's going to have to pay!

Jack: Oh, give me a break. You made this personal a long time ago. And because you didn't get your big headlines, you expect us to go down?

Justin: You bet.

Jack: Oh, is that right? Well, ok, then, that's it. You know what? Enjoy the chair.

Alan: Hey. Hey, hey, hey -- let's talk deal. I can offer the following. Kendall and Reggie plead out to felony conspiracy to obstruct justice. You plead to possession of a controlled substance and obstruction. We drop all the other charges. You each face two to five, which means you're out in 18 months, max.

Jack: Well, I hope you weren't up all night with that one, because that's not even a real offer.

Alan: It's more than fair. In fact, it's an offer you would have made yourself when you were in this office.

Jack: Maybe. Except for one thing. There are mitigating circumstances. These two were trying to protect their sister and the cousin that they love. Bianca had been through so much. They were desperate to save her from any more trauma.

Alan: Get to the counter offer.

Jack: They'll plead out to the misdemeanors. Probation and community service.

Justin: No way. No way.

Alan: I can't justify that.

Justin: No way.

Jack: Well, how the hell do you justify prison time?

Justin: To teach a lesson, Jack.

Alan: This is a high-profile case, Jack. The world is watching. At least our little corner of the world. I let you guys walk, I send a message that you can get away with anything short of murder. I'm waiting, counselor. Take the offer.

Jack: All right, Mr. Singer, let's try it this way. They plead out to the misdemeanors, probation and community service. And I'll plead guilty to the felony charges. You get to throw the book at me.

Kendall: What?

Jack: I'll serve whatever time a judge deems appropriate.

Reggie: Dad, no!

Kendall: No, no, Jack -- Jack, you can't do this.

Jack: And you can appoint my boy, Justin, here to the disciplinary board that disbars me. That ought to give him his pound of flesh. But you leave these kids out of it, you understand? Don't you mess with their future. So what do you say, Alan? When the doctors worked on you, did they find a heart?

Alan: In spite of what your former protégé here says, this has nothing to do with personal vendetta or PR, it's about you paying your debt to society.

Jack: And I'm ready to do that, Alan. I'm just appealing to your sense of fair play. Look, I can take this. But these two -- don't ruin their lives. They shouldn't have to pay so dearly for trying to save a loved one, now, should they?

Justin: Well, they should have thought about that before they broke the law, Jack.

[Knock on door]

Man: Hello, Alan. Mr. Montgomery.

Jack: Peter, glad to see you.

Peter: You must be the acting DA. I'm Peter Edgemont.

Justin: How are you doing?

Alan: Justin, Peter is Special Assistant to the Governor. What brings you here, Peter?

Peter: The governor has followed this case very closely. He is especially interested now that the truth has come out. And he sent me down here with some recommendations on how to proceed.

Alan: Well, you can assure Governor Brooks we've got it handled. The state's just accepted Jackson Montgomery's offer to plead guilty to all charges.

Jamie: What if I want to bring a girl back to the place?

Maggie: Well, I told you -- you'll have your own bedroom.

Jamie: But what if we're still heading towards the bedroom?

Maggie: Oh, you -- you're a tricky one. Well -- ok, so you can put a red tie on your door if you want me to steer clear. And I will put a red bra on my door if I have a guy over.

Jamie: Ok, listen -- if you have your bra off already, you better be in that bedroom.

Maggie: All I'm saying is that we can work it out. I mean, it's really not that complicated.

Jamie: It could be -- if one of us falls in love with the other one.

Maggie: Yeah, that could get messy. But what's life without taking chances, right?

Edmund: Maria, this is about so much more than whether I can just walk again. The idea of not being able to make love to you --

Maria: We can still make love. We can -- I mean, yeah, it's not going to be exactly what we're used to. But you've always been very creative. I know that you're up for the challenge.

Edmund: Yeah. Who's going to dance with you at Maddie's wedding? Who's going to walk her down the aisle?

Maria: I know --

Edmund: Listen to me.

Maria: That this is going to be really hard for you --

Edmund: I have no control --

Maria: Edmund. I know.

Edmund: No control over my body, honey. I'm going to be tied up to tubes and bags the rest of my life. Listen to me. I'm stuck here in this bed, ok? But in my mind -- in my mind, I am walking through our front door. I am sweeping you up into my arms. I'm taking you upstairs into our bedroom, and we are making love. And we are laughing all night long. And if there's a surgery that can get me halfway there, I have to do it.

Maria: But even if it kills you?

Edmund: Honey, this is killing me. This is killing me. The idea of just being here every day for the rest of my life like this, knowing that there's something that I could do about this. That's a slow death.

Maria: I had a -- I had a -- I had a dream. You told me that you died. It was -- I had -- it was a dream that I had. It was the whole reason that I went up to the cabin that night that you were shot. Because I dreamt that I was in the plane like I was before. And I thought I was going to die. But then I heard your voice telling me that it was you that was dead. Wasn't me, Edmund, it was you.

Edmund: But I didn't -- I'm not dead. I'm here.

Maria: No, but you don't understand. That -- it scared me so -- I can't -- you can't leave me. You can't leave me. Because if you left me, I swear to God, I would die myself.

Aidan: Double mocha latte? You look like you could use one.

Anita: Am I that transparent? Thanks.

Aidan: You're welcome. So like I said before, Edmund, Maria, and I have made our peace, and it would be really great if we can do the same. I mean, two times we've met now, and two times we've parted on a rather nasty note. And as three's my lucky number -- what do you say? It's a small price to pay for a cup of coffee.

Aidan: Oops. You know, it's really great that you're here for Maria.

Anita: I hope so. She always acts like she's got it all together. She always did.

Aidan: She's been bloody superwoman ever since Edmund got shot. You know, but sometimes the caretakers need taking care of.

Anita: It's what I do for a living. It's just tough when it's the ones that you love and they hurt so much.

Aidan: Yeah, you're right. I think it's good that you do what you do.

Greenlee: Thanks.

Ryan: Better? Good. Now before I kill you, will you tell me what the hell you were thinking going back to that mineshaft again, please?

Greenlee: I left something. A box. What if I made it up? What if it was never real?

Ryan: Greenlee, I think maybe a couple weeks in a padded cell in Oak Haven, and you'll be back to new.

Greenlee: Ryan -- Ryan, I have to have that box. It's important.

Ryan: You mean this old thing?

Peter: Alan, everyone knows you have your eye on the Attorney General's office. And frankly, Governor Brooks would like to see your name on the ballot.

Alan: And my platform is that I'm tough on crime.

Peter: There's a perception that this office has royally screwed up this case.

Jack: In other words, you come down on us with both boots, it's going to look like sour grapes. The public recognizes a scapegoat when they see one. Do I have that about right, Peter?

Peter: The people have spoken, Alan. The governor is watching to see if you hear their voice. Just consider that when you're in these negotiations.

Alan: I get it.

Peter: Good. Good man. Now, I've got to get back to the capitol. Budget talks -- you know how those go.

Jack: Thanks again, Peter.

Justin: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- wait -- wait a minute. Alan, what's going on here? What are you doing? You caving in? Listen, if you don't prosecute these guys, I will.

Alan: Shut up, McCoy.

Justin: Let me tell you something, Alan. Once you've headed back to Harrisburg, I am the Acting DA, and I swear that I will prosecute these three people again.

Peter: You make an interesting point, young man. Your last act as Special Prosecutor -- fire this punk. Good day, everybody.

Jack: Good day, Peter.

Justin: He can't do that. Can he? Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! Whoa, whoa -- Mr. Edgemont! Whoa!

Alan: Plead your clients out to the misdemeanors. I'll recommend probation and community service.

Kendall: So what about Jack?

Alan: Jack, too. Though, I don't think I can do anything about the disbarment.

Jack: No, probably not.

Alan: Better clean out your office, Jack.

Jack: Alan. Well, that was certainly an adventure, huh, kids?

Kendall: You're amazing.

Reggie: I love you, Dad.

Bianca: This is so cute. I have to get this. One Italian yellow knit onesie --

Lena: Aw.

Bianca: Size zero to three months. In my shopping cart.

Lena: What, just one?

Bianca: Oh, you're absolutely right. It's way too cute to just toss out when she outgrows it. I'll get one in the next size, too. This is really fun. Maggie has been on my case to get this done for months. Window shopping, she calls it. It's going to be weird not having her around.

Lena: Are you rethinking the house?

Bianca: No. Lena, does it bother you that I want to live alone?

Lena: Oh -- no, not at all.

Bianca: Are you sure? Because I don't want to hurt you or anything. I feel like we're -- we're on the road back. And -- and it feels great. But living together right now --

Lena: Stop --

Bianca: I just don't know if I'm --

Lena: Shh. Look, we're dating, and we're here together. And like you say, we're on our road back. And I couldn't be happier. If I didn't understand your need to have a little space to yourself and a little privacy to bond with your baby, I'd be a complete jerk.

Bianca: Oh, stop. You're anything but.

Lena: Look, I've been very selfish about you before and I've been insecure about our relationship. But not anymore. I completely understand that your baby is your number one priority right now. And there'll be plenty of time to think about us when you're more settled in.

Bianca: Thank you so much, Lena.

Jack: Ok, ok, ok, you two, listen. We can celebrate later. I got some packing to do.

Kendall: Well, can we help?

Jack: No, that's ok. I've got it.

Reggie: And where was Greenlee through all this? She should have been the one squirming in those chairs, but it figures. When things get rough, she's nowhere to be found.

Jack: Actually, Ryan called me this morning. He found Greenlee.

Kendall: Ryan? Did -- did he say where they were?

Jack: No, not where or when or how, for that matter. Just that he found her and she's safe with him.

Kendall: I'd say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Thank you. Thank you for everything, Jack.

Jack: Anytime. And you, straight home. Stay out of trouble.

Reggie: You know me.

Jack: Yeah.

Reggie: Hmm. Ryan and Greenlee? Man, I thought he was on our side.

Kendall: It just goes to prove my point. I was right. They were in this together all along. Now they're off somewhere living it up.

Ryan: Well, a key would be helpful. I mean --

Greenlee: Well, you know that's not how these things ever happen.

Ryan: Oh -- well, not to you, Greenlee. I mean, there's only one reason that you would risk going back to that hellhole, and that's because of a sign from Leo. Am I right?

[Church bells chime]

Greenlee's voice: You're telling me if I open this box, everything I've always wished for -- the thing I've always wanted, will be mine?

Ryan's voice: It will be yours, Greenlee, I promise.

Greenlee: I have to open it.

Ryan: Greenlee, you're hanging a lot -- a lot on this, all right? Listen, I am the one guy who understands your whole psychic thing with Leo and everything, but, I mean, if you open this box, there's probably nothing in it.

Greenlee: Shh -- shut up.

Ryan: There's probably, like, costume jewelry or something like --

Greenlee: Shut up and help me open the damn thing.

Ryan: Well, you know what? That screwdriver --

Greenlee: Just break the latch, ok, so I can open it.

Ryan: All right, ok. All right, all right, all right, all right. Ugh!

Greenlee: Oh, my God. I knew it. Isn't it fantastic?

Ryan: Uh-huh. But what's the punch line, Greenlee? Because it's -- it's empty. There's -- there's nothing in it.

Greenlee: Exactly. But this was your gift to me. You knew how much it mattered to me, and so you saved it when you saved me.

Ryan: You are a very confusing woman.

Greenlee: Confused, Ryan. What I've been is confused. But suddenly, things seem pretty clear to me.

Maggie: Oh -- my bad.

Bianca: Oh. It's not a problem.

Maggie: No, I -- I should have knocked. I'm sorry.

Bianca: No, you don't have to knock, Maggie. You live here.

Maggie: Well, not for long. Hey, where is the landlord's phone number?

Bianca: Why? Don't tell me you're moving out.

Maggie: I'm not moving out. Except I am.

Bianca: Maggie, what happened?

Maggie: Nothing. The apartment across the hall is available, and I really want it bad. Oh, here it is. Perfect. Um -- Jamie and I are going to move in together.

Kendall: I'm sorry that you lost so much.

Jack: Oh, Kendall, we all lost something.

Kendall: So what do we do now?

Jack: We all try to put this sorry mess behind us.

Kendall: Yeah, but your -- your career -- I mean, you love law so much.

Jack: Yeah, and I abused it, Kendall. This is the price I pay.

Kendall: Well, it's our loss.

Jack: I appreciate that. Maybe one day, they'll allow me to practice again. But I'm going to have to be a hell of a lot wiser before I do that.

Edmund: It was just a dream, honey. I have no intention of dying. I'm going to walk, I'm going to dance, I'm going to play tennis.

Maria: You don't play tennis.

Edmund: I'm going to walk, I'm going to dance.

[Maria laughs]
