Krystal: You know, this is just like the shower. You just --

Adam: No, no, no, don't go in there.


Adam: If you value your life, stay out of that room.

Tad: Why? What's wrong?

Adam: Wedding arrangements, silver patterns, tulle samples, platters. Krystal, Mary, and Babe.

Tad: Oh, my.

Adam: "Oh, my," indeed.

Mary: At least I don't need to supersize everything, including French fries on the side!

Tad: I see what you mean.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Krystal: There's nothing wrong with living large!

Babe: You tell her, Mama!

Mary: That woman is out of control!

Krystal: You call this china?

Mary: She's out of control.

Krystal: I wouldn't serve kibble on it!

Mary: Oh!

Tad: Incoming.

[Knock on door]

Jamie: Oh. Hey, bro.

J.R.: Hey. You got a sec?

Jamie: Yeah. Come on in.

[Jamie hums]

Jamie: Have a seat.

J.R.: Wow. Looks like you've really got settled in here.

Jamie: Hey, hey, hey, as long as I clean this up before Maggie gets back, everything's cool. Sure beats living with the rents, that's for sure.

J.R.: Yeah.

Jamie: So, what's up?

J.R.: Well, it's actually -- it's about Babe and --

Jamie: Is she ok?

J.R.: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. We're better than ok. We're renewing our vows.

Jamie: Oh.

J.R.: We're going to have the wedding at the house, the works. So actually, I was -- I would be really honored if you'd be my best man.

[Phone rings]

Ryan: Hello.

Kendall: Ryan, hey, we're waiting for you. Did you forget about the meeting?

Ryan: Nope.

Kendall: So then you'll be there?

Ryan: Nope.

Kendall: Why not?

Ryan: Because, Kendall, you're in charge.

Kendall: Yeah, but, I mean, we really need you here, Ryan. We've got layout deadlines and we have to get up to speed on the whole Fusion-Enchantment merger. I mean, we've got tons of decisions to make.

Ryan: Well, then make them, Kendall. That's why I made you CEO. I trust you.

Kendall: Well, I would really value your input.

Ryan: Well, then send me a memo. I got to go.

Kendall: All right, then. Bye.

Ryan: So, you ready to elope?

Greenlee: I said yes to your proposal, but I'm not ready to hit the altar just yet.

Ryan: We both want to do this. Why wait?

Greenlee: Well, we've got a few things to straighten out before we take the plunge.

Ryan: Ok, I'll make this easy for you. I don't want a bachelor party. Ok? Ready to go?

Greenlee: Ryan, Ryan, we have lives and responsibilities. Getting married's a very big deal. We've got to do this right.

Ryan: Ok -- bachelor party, but no strippers. What? All right, I'm sorry. You're absolutely right. What do you got?

Greenlee: Just a few questions. I made a few notes to cover the salient points.

Ryan: A few? Where are volumes three and four?

Greenlee: Ryan, this marriage is serious business, remember? I mean, you and I might suck at love, but we rock at business. Point number one --

Ryan: What happened to the Greenlee that trusted me implicitly?

Greenlee: No, I still do. But a boardroom marriage is still a marriage -- a serious legal, binding contract, and there are all sorts of loopholes and pitfalls unless we take care of them now. It's important, Ryan, for both of us.

Ryan: Fair enough. What areas are you concerned about?

Greenlee: Division of assets, wills, tax ramifications -- married filing jointly, married filing as individuals -- trusts, bank accounts, investments, Kendall.

Simone: You know what? I say to go with the black-and-whites. Spring is always about color. You know, these ones will pop. They've got edge.

Mia: It's boring. Yawn.

Simone: No, they're not.

Mia: Yes, they are. Let's just wait for Ryan, ok?

Simone: Ok, fine.

Kendall: Ryan isn't coming, so let's do this.

Mia: It's just us?

Kendall: Yep, looks that way.

Simone: But what about Greenlee?

Kendall: Weren't you here when she cleared out?

Simone: So that's it?

Kendall: Yeah, that's it. You can stick a fork in Greenlee. She's done.

Mia: Well, what's she going to do now?

Kendall: There's nothing that she can do. I mean, as of right now, she's officially past tense in this company, except for her dividend checks.

Simone: And what about you and Ryan?

Kendall: Can we focus, please?

Mia: Something tells me that we can stick a fork in Kendall and Ryan. Pay up.

Kendall: Do you guys have any latest news on the teen beauty line?

Simone: Ah, yes. I was up all night brainstorming.

Kendall: Oh, excellent.

Simone: I think you'll like that.

Kendall: Excellent. I want these campaign ads out before school starts in the fall. Is that a problem?

Simone: Oh, no, we're good to go.

Mia: Yes, next on the agenda, Enchantment needs a little TLC in the marketing department.

[Elevator doors open]

Kendall: That's true. Bianca, you ok? What are you doing here?

Bianca: I'm here to work.

J.R.: I just want to make a fresh start. Look, things are really great right now, and they'd be even better if you'd be my best man. So what do you say?

Jamie: I'd like that.

J.R.: Yeah?

Jamie: Yeah.

J.R.: Yeah? All right, thanks.

Jamie: So when's the big day?

J.R.: I'll let you know. Seems that the groom is left out on all the big decisions, so --

Jamie: Well, I guess Bess is too young to be a flower girl. How's she doing?

J.R.: Oh, man, she is so awesome. Here, check her out for yourself. Here. Right here.

Jamie: Wow, you have not carried around this many pictures since you got that 1968 'vette.

J.R.: I know, I know. You know, I used to make fun of people that would carry around an album in their wallet like that and brag on their kids, but now I'm one of them. Of course, I've got the most beautiful daughter in the world.

Jamie: Yeah, she's gorgeous. Good thing she looks like her mother.

J.R.: I tell you, James, there's nothing like it. Every time I see my wife and my daughter together, I just feel so lucky.

Jamie: Yeah, I'm glad everything worked out the way it did. But I got to warn you, I'm going to be a gonzo uncle. I'm going to -- I'm going to spoil Bess rotten.

J.R.: I was actually thinking about another title.

Jamie: Chief executive uncle?

J.R.: Godfather. Look, I know it seems like a lot of responsibility, but if you can stand up there next to me at the wedding, I know you can handle this. Come on, who knows me better than you? Who's closer? What do you say?

Jamie: I'll make you proud.

Tad: Well, now I know what they mean when they say "tempest in a teapot."

Adam: It's been Martha Stewart vs. Elly may all morning.

Tad: Sounds ugly.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Mary: All right. Take these plates into Ma Kettle. Maybe one of these patterns will be appropriate -- although I don't know how that rhinestone cowgirl can make an appropriate choice about anything.

Tad: Well, choosing china patterns was never my strong suit.

Mary: This is just insane. I've got a staff trying to decorate the house and plan a wedding. It's just total chaos!

Adam: Well, it's your job to create order out of chaos, Mary.

Mary: But why does Babe have to get married now? Why can't it wait till next year? They're married. They've got a baby already. What's the big rush?

Tad: Well, what are you going to do? The bridge gets to call the shots, right?

Mary: Yeah, but the mother is pulling the trigger. Ok. Let's get this over with.

Tad: Ours is not to reason why.

Adam: Well, if you don't want to do or die, don't forget to duck.

Mary: Where are you going?

Adam: I -- I have a meeting.

Mary: No, you don't. Inside, now. You are the only person that can keep me from doing and dying or killing somebody in there. Come on.

Krystal: All right, now, we got the caterer, we have to get a florist, and we have to hire a band.

Babe: I like these.

Krystal: That's number one on the list.

Babe: We should get --

Tad: Madam wishes to inspect the china pattern?

Krystal: You? How dare you show your face after what you did.

Tad: Maybe paper plates?

Krystal: Damn it, Tad, are you trying to ruin everything?

Maggie: So Danielle totally has Reggie going, right? And then she shows a tattoo, and then claims that Reggie has one as well somewhere special.

Jamie: Danielle's got a tat?

Reggie: Yeah, of my first initial.

Jamie: All right, no way. Ok, where is it?

Reggie: Well, let's just say it's on the down low, so to speak.

Jamie: You know, if somebody played me like that, they would be in for a serious smack-down.

Reggie: I mean, yeah, I know, but I got to give it to her. I mean, she was so smooth with it. It was like poetry in motion. But I'm with you, you know? It's time for some payback, and it's going to be good.

Jamie: Yeah, that's my man.

Reggie: That's right.

Jamie: Any ideas?

Reggie: No. But are you in on it?

Jamie: Absolutely.

Reggie: Ok. How about you?

Maggie: Oh, front and center, king man.

Reggie: Don't ask, ok? Danielle's going to be knocked out before she knew what hit her.

Jamie: Yeah, but we got to be smart. I mean, this girl is obviously a player.

Reggie: Yeah.

Jamie: If we're too head-on, she's going to bust us, especially you two goofs. No offense.

Maggie: No, none taken. Yeah, you'd better not blow it.

Reggie: I mean, Jamie's right -- Danielle's slick -- too slick. I mean, she could sell water to a drowning man. It's got to be good, yet good.

[Knock on door]

Jack: Danielle.

Danielle: Hi, Mr. Montgomery. Is Reggie home?

Jack: No, no, he's not back. But even if he were here, I'm not so sure he'd be happy to see you. You almost landed him in jail.

Danielle: That scene was kind of crazy, huh?

Jack: Oh, it was crazy, all right, yeah.

Danielle: But you don't have to worry about that anymore. Reggie and I, we made our peace -- kind of.

Jack: Really? Well, Reggie seemed pretty upset.

Danielle: My dad so overreacted.

Jack: You so lied to my son.

Danielle: I know. It was all my fault. I didn't know what else to do.

Jack: Yeah, well, Danielle, you know, the truth has much to recommend it.

Danielle: I know that now, but I was really scared. I didn't want to be shipped back to my mom, and Reggie made me feel safe and secure. He was a total gentleman. He said he gets that from you.

Jack: Yes, Reggie and I come from a long line of gentlemen. You know, why don't I give him a call on his cell phone, let him know you're here.

Danielle: Oh, no, that's ok. I'll -- I'll catch him later.

Jack: It's no problem.

Danielle: I've been enough of a problem already, haven't I? Actually, Mr. Montgomery, I wanted to see you, too, to thank you for backing my dad off of Reggie. Things kind of got a little out of control, I know.

Jack: Yes, I imagine that happens quite a bit around you. Come on in.

Danielle: Yeah, well -- I don't really know what's up with you and my dad lately, but he always said you were a straight-up lawyer, you know, one of the good guys. He was right. You're one of the best.

Kendall: Are you sure you're ready to go back to work?

Simone: We'll drop these prints off to the guys in graphics. Bianca, it's really nice to see you. I'm really sorry about everything.

Mia: You look great.

Bianca: Oh --

Simone: You really do.

Bianca: Thank you.

Simone: We'll see you later.

Bianca: So, where do you want me?

Kendall: I don't know. Are you really sure that you're ready to do this?

Bianca: Kendall, I need this. What am I supposed to do, just sit at home and -- what? I won't break. You got to stop treating me like I'm a piece of glass that's going to shatter as soon as reality hits.

Kendall: I just -- I don't want you to jump into anything that you're not ready for.

Bianca: I'm more than ready for this. Besides, you need me. Fusion's teen line. You know, I headed up development of Enchantment's line -- quite successfully, I might add.

Kendall: Yes, yes, and I know that you can do the work. I know that.

Bianca: All right, then let me. I know product, demographics, I know Enchantment. And I know you're understaffed, I mean, especially now that Lena is gone.

Kendall: Yeah, I'm sorry. I'm really sorry about Lena's mother's illness and that it took her away from you.

Bianca: Well, it's not forever. And there's -- there's phones, there's e-mail, there's planes, and -- and love. That trumps everything, right? We're going to be ok.

Kendall: Yeah, it was just bad timing.

Bianca: Yeah, it was great of you to let her go on such short notice, Kendall. I know it couldn't have been easy, especially with how crazy everything's been around here.

Kendall: I wish I could have done more.

Bianca: You can. Point me to my desk.

Kendall: Ok, are you sure? You're sure that you're ready for this? Ok. Welcome back!

Bianca: Thank you. I'm really excited!

Kendall: Oh.

Bianca: I can't wait to get started. I mean, I know Enchantment, but Fusion is a whole new world.

Kendall: Yes.

Bianca: How is the merger going? Does -- does Greenlee know that she's out?

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, we dropped that bomb already. She's gone.

Bianca: And how did she take it?

Kendall: She was kicking and screaming, but she's gone.

Bianca: And what does Ryan say? How does he feel about the whole thing? Is everything all right with you two?

Ryan: Kendall is not a factor, if that's what you're worried about. I thought we talked about that last night.

Greenlee: Just checking to be sure.

Ryan: So what else you got?

Greenlee: We've got to get a prenup.

Ryan: Ok, that makes sense, but just so you know, I'm not after your money. I got plenty of my own, I promise.

Greenlee: It's mostly for your protection, not mine.

Ryan: Should I be worried?

Greenlee: Without a prenup, I could divorce you before the wedding cake's stale and gut the whole corporation. You know what that means -- liquidation and the piecemeal breakup of Cambias Industries and its holdings.

Ryan: There goes the honeymoon.

Greenlee: I'm just looking out for both of us. I mean, if we've got it in writing, if one of us goes postal on the other, there won't be a bloodbath.

Ryan: Sold. I'll get my lawyers on it. What else you got?

Greenlee: Uh -- cohabitation. You do realize we have to live together, right?

Liza: Mia! Thank God.

Mia: What?

Liza: I got to talk to you.

Mia: What is it? What?

Liza: Whoa, whoa, whoa! I've got some news that's going to blow your mind.

Krystal: Babe, why don't you show Adam and Mary your idea for the music room?

Babe: Oh, yes! Good idea.

Adam: Are you planning on redoing the music room?

Babe: Yes. So I was thinking since the room, you know, has all those dead-guy tunes that it might need a little pizzazz, so, ok, ok, bear with me, this is what I'm thinking. So I'm thinking animal prints -- here, take that -- and we'll go with this big old jungle theme. Won't it be wild? Mama, if I go show them, would you mind just keeping an ear out for the monitor just in case Bess wakes up?

Krystal: You can count on me.

Babe: Ok.

Krystal: Unlike some people.

Babe: Ok, guys, you are going to absolutely love this, but, first, you have to just picture there's going to be some big old palm trees in there --

Adam: Palm trees?

Babe: Yeah.

Adam: Oh, Mary, let's take a walk on the wild side. Palm trees.

Babe: Come on, you'll love it.

Krystal: Why the hell did you tell Liza?

Tad: Tell her what?

Krystal: Oh, come on, don't get cute with me. The annulment paper? You told me you'd keep that secret and take it to your grave -- which is being dug right now.

Tad: Just a second, just a second. Did Liza -- did Liza say that I told her something?

Krystal: Oh, come on, honey, she wouldn't shut up. She went on and on about how you two were so close and that you were so worried that the secret was going to get out and hurt J.R. so you had to go and tell her, huh?

Tad: Hold on a minute!

Krystal: News flash, ok -- the way to keep a secret is to keep your mouth shut and don't go blabbing to somebody who has no business knowing about it.

Tad: Krystal, I didn't go blabbing to anybody about anything.

Krystal: Oh, come on, now, don't deny it now. It's out. Now, Liza swears to me that she's not going to tell anybody, but you know what -- I've heard that before from somebody who I thought I could trust.

Tad: You can trust me.

Krystal: Oh, yeah, I can trust you like I can trust Liza, which is zilch. Let me tell you something, Tad Martin -- if one word of that secret comes out of Liza's mouth, both of you are going to hell on a lightning bolt! Am I clear?

Tad: Yeah. Yeah, I get the picture.

Babe: So, honestly, isn't it just the greatest idea on the planet? And it really almost feels like real fur, doesn't it?

Mary: You can't turn the music room into a petting zoo.

Krystal: Hey, now, doesn't my Babe just do a great job? Let me tell you something, from the time she was a little girl, she always knew where to put what --

Babe: Oh, Mama --

Krystal: To make a house feel like a home.

Mary: I bet she did.

J.R.: Hey, baby!

Babe: Hey!

J.R.: How's the wedding planning?

Babe: Oh, you don't even know. It is a blast, and I just think that maybe we need to be doing this every single year.

J.R.: Mm-hmm.

Tad: You've got to know that I would never --

J.R.: Hey, Tad, I have an announcement to make. I'm glad you're here. Listen, I've done my part for the wedding, and Jamie has agreed to be my best man.

Tad: Oh.

Babe: J.R., that is honestly the best news ever. Isn't it?

Tad: I'm proud of you, son. I'm proud of you.

J.R.: Well, I figured it wouldn't be a celebration without my brother.

Tad: Yeah.

J.R.: You all right?

Mary: No more tassels.

Krystal: Oh, come on, honey, they drip glamour.

Mary: Maybe on a pillow. Not as a part of your body.

Krystal: All you got to do is put a little shoulder into it, Mary. Here, let me show you how to do it, all right?

Adam: Ladies, let's concentrate on the matter at hand. We have a wedding to prepare.

Tad: There's something I got to take care of.

J.R.: Where are you going?

Tad: Don't worry. I'll be back.

Babe: Honey, I just wish that everybody in the world was as happy as we are.

Jamie: Itching powder.

Maggie: Prank-call her.

Jamie: Let's just put Superglue in her shampoo.

Maggie: Oh, come on, that's just plain old mean. Send her, like, a dozen pizzas.

Reggie: What, are we 10? We got to think bigger.

Maggie: Ok. Add pepperoni and pineapple.

Reggie: I mean, that's little-kid stuff. We're thinking too small. Danielle rates off-the-hook punkage.

Jamie: Ok, then you get a tattoo.

Maggie: Yeah, just like she said, but go even bigger. You know, have her -- have her name tattooed across your whole back.

Jamie: Yeah, and a picture of her with little devil horns on it.

Reggie: Big, but not that big.

Jamie: Well, it's not like she has a limo to steal or a fine car we can trash.

Reggie: I mean, we got to do more than make strings pop out of her diet soda.

Jamie: What does she care about?

Reggie: Herself and herself.

Jamie: Is there anything else?

Reggie: Look, I'm going to make a munchies run, ok? Anybody want anything?

Jamie: Potato chips.

Reggie: Ok, gotcha.

Jamie: Watch out, Danielle.

Maggie: She deserves this.

Jamie: I just hopes she gets as good as she gives.

Maggie: She's too much.

Jamie: Well, she called some things right.

Maggie: Like what?

Jamie: Well, it only took her five seconds to tell that you weren't the jealous type.

Maggie: She also thought that we weren't even involved.

Jamie: Technically, she was right.

Maggie: Do you want me to be jealous?

Jamie: No. It's just most girls probably would be.

Maggie: I am not most girls.

Jamie: No, definitely not.

Maggie: I'm happy with the way things are.

Jamie: Well, if that ever changes, feel free to tell me.

Maggie: Ok.

Jamie: And, I mean, if you meet someone else or whatever.

Maggie: Do you see anybody? I mean, are there guys overloaded on our voicemail?

Jamie: I don't know, you know. These things sneak up on you before you even know it.

Maggie: Are you trying to tell me something?

Reggie: I got it! I got it, I got it, I got it!

Jamie: Is it good?

Reggie: It's too good, too good, too good.

Jamie: Let's do it!

Maggie: Where do we start?

Reggie: Well, first, we're going to need a little backup, and then Danielle's going down.

Bianca: You gave Ryan an ultimatum? Kendall, how could you nail him to the wall like that?

Kendall: What choice -- what choice did I have? I mean, do you honestly really think that Greenlee is new and improved?

Bianca: You know, maybe we're wrong about Greenlee. Maybe she really has changed.

Kendall: Look, I know that she gave you the necklace that Leo gave her, but that doesn't mean that you can trust her.

Bianca: I don't know.

Kendall: No, think about all the horrible things that she's done to us. No one changes that quickly.

Bianca: Ok. All right, fine, probably not. But to tell Ryan that he can never see her again -- Kendall, that's severe.

Kendall: I had to do it.

Bianca: Couldn't you just trust him? I love Lena, but if she told me that I could never speak to Maggie again --

Kendall: No, that's not the same. That's not the same. Maggie is your friend and she's not trying to take you away from Lena. Greenlee's only in this for one reason -- to get Ryan, to take Ryan away from me, and if I didn't stop her, she would have.

Bianca: Kendall, I understand that Greenlee pushes your buttons, but I don't like what this has done to you and Ryan.

Kendall: Well, he needs to see what she's really all about.

Bianca: Or maybe you do. You know, when we put that clause in the Cambias bylaws, it was because I thought that Greenlee was a threat. But now? Maybe Greenlee is in a different place.

Ryan: My place or yours?

Greenlee: We'll -- we'll work out the details later. I just wanted to make sure it didn't freak you out.

Ryan: No. I mean, it's a no-brainer. We have to make this marriage look legit, right?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: And if the stockholders figure out that the wedding was just a way for us to juggle around the Cambias assets, then we're going to be up to our neck with lawsuits and the SEC will be all over us.

Greenlee: That's the last thing we need.

Ryan: Yeah, but it's not going to happen. Once we work out the housekeeping, we'll be in the clear. So you want to move in here?

Greenlee: Only if we buy more furniture.

Ryan: Mi casa es su casa. Well, half of it will be.

Greenlee: The half that's tastefully decorated.

Ryan: Are you slamming my straight eye?

Greenlee: It could use some refinement.

Ryan: Oh. Well, do with it as you will from the kitchen to the bedroom.

Greenlee: The bedroom. Right. That leads to my next question. How far do we take this marriage thing?

Ryan: You want to register at Lacey�s?

Greenlee: I mean, does this package include having sex?

Ryan: Sex? Like with each other?

Greenlee: I'm serious!

Ryan: Ok, I'm listening.

Greenlee: We need to work it out now so we don't have any surprises later on. Someone could trip us up on the sex question.

Ryan: Well, technically, a marriage isn't official until it's consummated.

Greenlee: Well if we opt for sex, we lock down the marriage, but what happens to our friendship?

Ryan: True. That could get tricky.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Ryan: We could have sex just once and make it official, then go back to being friends.

Greenlee: Too --

Ryan: Clinical?

Greenlee: Icky.

Ryan: "Icky"?

Greenlee: Too calculated. I say we go all the way, so to speak, or completely abstain. What do you think?

Ryan: What do you think?

Greenlee: I don't know. We've slept in the same bed before.

Ryan: A lot.

Greenlee: And nothing happened.

Ryan: Recently.

Greenlee: Yeah, but it could.

Ryan: Definitely.

Greenlee: But what if it ruins our friendship?

Ryan: But what if it doesn't?

Greenlee: But what if it does?

Ryan: You're right, too risky.

Greenlee: Totally.

Ryan and Greenlee: Friends?

Greenlee: Yeah. What a relief to have that out of the way.

Ryan: Yeah, you can say that. What else you got?

Greenlee: What about sex with other people? What if Kendall decides to come in and play happy sheets?

Kendall: Ryan made his choice. He is completely convinced that Greenlee is on the level.

Bianca: Well, maybe then we should go with Ryan on this one. We should rethink the Greenlee clause -- take it out or modify it.

Kendall: No, no. Greenlee hasn't changed at all. The clause stays. We're keeping it in. Trust me, it's for the better, you'll see.

Bianca: But does Ryan agree with that?

Kendall: He wants me in charge.

Bianca: Well, what does that mean exactly?

Kendall: He wants me to take care of everything here.

Bianca: Permanently?

Kendall: Look, I don't need Ryan holding my hand to run this company.

Bianca: Maybe not, but one of the things that was so great about this was that you and Ryan were going to be working as a partnership.

Kendall: Ok, but don't worry about this, Bianca. It's going to be fine. With Greenlee out of the picture finally, this company will thrive.

Bianca: But with Ryan out of the picture, will you?

Jamie: Are you sure you can do it? Oh, yeah, thank you. You are the greatest.

Reggie: So, what, we're on, we're good?

Jamie: We are locked and loaded.

Reggie: Yes.

Maggie: Oh, this is going to be so fun.

Jamie: Yes, little Miss Frye�s about to be deep-fried.

Reggie: Oh, yeah, Danielle, you're going down. She's going to get it so good, so good.

Jack: Your dad is one of the best cops I've ever known and we had a great working relationship for years, but lately things have gotten a little -- a little close to the bone. But I'm sure it'll all smooth out.

Danielle: Yeah, I'm all about that for Reggie and me. He's a straight-up guy, a real friend. It'd be really messed up if I let my craziness get in the way of that, you know?

Jack: Yeah, well, lying can do that.

Danielle: If I could take it all back, I would. You've got to believe me.

Jack: No, listen, I just think maybe you're telling this to the wrong guy. Reggie should be the one hearing this.

Danielle: But I wanted to apologize to you, too. I'm sure I may have caused you some serious stress.

Jack: Well, I appreciate the apology, but we all survived.

Danielle: See, that's why Reggie looks up to you so much. You're mad cool.

Jack: Yeah, well, I'm sure you're mad cool, too, if you could just keep a lid on the craziness.

Danielle: I will. I should get going.

Jack: I'll tell Reggie you stopped by.

Danielle: Thanks. Thanks.

Jack: Sure.

[Phone rings]

Danielle: Hello?

Reggie: Hello, Danielle?

Danielle: Reggie? You still looking for your sense of humor?

Reggie: No, you know, I never lost it.

Danielle: About time you realized it was just a goof. Am I forgiven?

Reggie: Yeah, but only because Maggie put in a good word for you.

Danielle: Thank her for me.

Reggie: No, you could come over here and thank her yourself. You know, we're waiting for Jamie to get back in, and then we was thinking about getting a movie.

Danielle: As long as it's not a slasher flick.

Reggie: Oh, don't worry, it's nothing but laughs. Ahem. Wait, get a pen, take down the address. All right, it's 52 Maple Road.

Mia: Liza. There's nobody up here but the pigeons. What is it?

Liza: Ok, I've got it. I've got the secret. The thing that's going to drive Krystal out of Pine Valley for good?

Mia: What is it? What is that?

Liza: Babe's annulment papers.

Mia: Babe's? So what?

Liza: Check out the date. The ink's not even dry. J.R. and Babe's marriage isn't legitimate. Neither is the baby.

Mia: Oh, my God.

Liza: Krystal buried this so Babe could hang on to her rich husband, and poor J.R. -- I mean, he's getting ready to renew vows that weren't legal to begin with!

Mia: Ok, all right, so now you have everything that you want to get rid of Krystal, but there's other people involved. There's a baby.

Liza: I know. I know, I know. Listen, I got to think about this. I don't know what to do. I don't know the best way to use this.

Mia: Or not. I mean, I get that you want Krystal gone, but Adam will go ballistic. And what about Babe and J.R.? They love each other. This would kill J.R.

Liza: Well, it could open his eyes.

Mia: Well, who are you trying to convince, me or you?

Liza: I -- what am I going to do? I mean, this gets me what I want, but it blows the family sky-high.

Babe: Well, since J.R. made his announcement, I've got one of my own. I've decided to ask Bianca to be my maid of honor.

Maggie: Hey, come on in!

Danielle: Thanks. Nice place.

Maggie: Thanks.

Reggie: Do you have any tricks up your sleeve, any concealed weapons I need to worry about or something?

Danielle: Why, you want to frisk me?

Reggie: Oh, no, I'm not touching that.

Maggie: Ok, listen, don't worry about him because the look on his face was priceless.

Danielle: Yeah, I did get him good, didn't I? But it's not like I had to work hard at it. The man's an easy target.

Reggie: Ok. All right. We all laughed, fun. Ok, can we just get over it?

Danielle: You sure you don't want another peek?

Reggie: Once was enough.

Danielle: What's up with the mood? You can't take any fun?

Reggie: Well, I'm just waiting for the fun part.

Maggie: Ooh, hey, you.

Reggie: What's up, James?

Danielle: Aren't you all nice and shiny.

Jamie: Hmm, well, you're mighty fine yourself, Danielle.

Danielle: Take a picture. It'll last longer.

Jamie: You are a total Babe.

Danielle: I thought I was too young for you.

Jamie: Oh, man, those eyes, that skin? Have you ever modeled?

Reggie: James, that line is so old, it reeks, man.

Jamie: I'm just observing.

Reggie: Well, then show some respect.

Jamie: Oh, I am.

Reggie: No, I'm talking about Maggie. Look, you're this close to being out of line.

Jamie: Chill, man. I'm not hitting on her. It's just there's this thing going on at work.

Maggie: Oh, Fusion Cosmetics?

Danielle: I've heard of them.

Jamie: Yeah, they're putting out this new line for teens in the fall, and they're looking for a hottie to build the campaign around.

Reggie: So?

Jamie: Well, Simone told me the look that they want, and Danielle's definitely got it.

Reggie: Wait, Danielle's too crazy. Simone better look at a modeling agency or something like that. Did you guys forget we have a movie to catch?

Danielle: Hold on. I want to hear more.

Ryan: I told you to cross Kendall off your list permanently. I have.

Greenlee: You say it's over with Kendall. It's over -- for now.

Ryan: Greenlee --

Greenlee: But what about the future? Maybe it's with Kendall. Maybe it's with someone else. We've got to decide how we're going to handle the sex-with-other-people issue.

Ryan: So you want to include a clause for extracurricular activities?

Greenlee: Something like that. Look, I'm cool with whatever we decide, but if we're going to do this marriage thing, we've got to give it a real shot.

Ryan: Greenlee, we're not going to have to worry about the jealousy nightmare because we're in a love-free zone, remember?

Greenlee: This isn't about jealousy. It's about good management. You know what sex does.

Ryan: My mom had that talk with me.

Greenlee: Ryan, it complicates everything, no matter who you're sleeping with. And if someone finds out that we've been boffing other people right after the honeymoon, it could put our whole plan in jeopardy.

Ryan: So we don't have sex with each other or anybody else. So, what, I take up needlepoint?

Greenlee: I propose a time limit. How long will it take to reorganize Cambias Industries so a divorce won't jeopardize our holdings?

Ryan: Well, I'll have to get onboard with the lawyers and -- six months, a year?

Greenlee: Excellent. I say we do a six-month contract with a six-month option. And then when the option comes up, we can just revisit the whole sex thing if, you know --

Ryan: Our heads explode?

Greenlee: We just can't keep our hands off each other.

Ryan: Six months? I guess I can handle that.

Greenlee: Great. We're done.

Ryan: You are amazing, Greenlee. I thought you were going to suck all the fun out of this with your lists and clauses and everything, but at least one of us is thinking logically.

Greenlee: Mm-hmm, that's me, ms. Sensible -- except for my shoes.

Ryan: So can we get going, please, because I have a whole day of meetings tomorrow. I want to get the "I dos" done before --

Greenlee: Oh, I know you're really anxious for our wedding night, but I'm not going to be rushed, ok? I want glamour, not canned muzak.

Ryan: Plastic flowers?

Greenlee: Have your lawyers crank out the prenup.

Ryan: Wait! Where you going to?

Greenlee: Well, I got to find the perfect spot to get married and I've got to get a dress. Oh, and pack something nice for yourself. This may be business, but it's still my wedding and I'm going to look damn good, and so are you. Ciao.

Kendall: Stop worrying. You worry too much. I've got everything under control. I am CEO of Fusion-Enchantment Cosmetics. No one can touch me -- not Ryan, not Greenlee.

Bianca: Kendall, stop. I know you still love Ryan, and if there's even a chance that you two can work this out, you need to try. So will you? Will you go find Ryan and try to fix this?

Kendall: You know what? The time. I'm running late. I have to run errands.

Bianca: Oh --

Kendall: I will be right back! I will see you a few minutes.

Bianca: Kendall, don't run away from this.

Kendall: Run? I'm too busy heading a major corporation. Now, take a look at this. It's the new campaign for our teen Fusion line. Let me know what you think, ok? Yes, stop worrying. See you later.

Mia: Ok, so what are you going to do?

Liza: I don't know.

Mia: Well, if you do this, you are going to hurt some of the people that you care about.

Liza: And if I don't do it, I could lose the man that I love. Look, I didn't think I would dig up something like this.

Mia: Maybe you should just forget about it, you know, just put the paper back. There's other ways that you could get rid of Krystal, aside from mass destruction. All right, fine. Just think about it, at least.

Liza: I will.

Mia: Ok, well -- ahem -- I got to go meet Simone. I'll see you later.

Liza: Well, hello.

[Tad pulls Liza into the elevator and escorts her to the roof.]

Liza: You are so caveman. Oh, please tell me you're off --

Tad: Don't, ok? Stop it. Stop it. All I want to know is what you think you're trying to pull with Krystal and J.R. and Babe.

J.R.: You want Bianca to be your maid of honor? What about Krystal?

Babe: Well, Mama's going to give me away, and I think it would just be perfect if Bianca stood up for me.

Krystal: Are you -- you sure about this?

Babe: Mama, nothing would make me happier.

J.R.: Bianca's still kind of fragile. Don't you think we should think about this some more?

Babe: J.R., it's pretty much all I've been thinking about. I mean, this wedding -- it's not just about us. It's about Bess, too. And since the house is going to be decorated up to the wazoo, you know, with the bubbles and the food and the people and the minister, I was thinking that it might just be a good idea, after we get married, we'll have Bess' christening. And then that way Bianca can stand up for me and for Bess, since she's going to be Bess' godmother.

Ryan: Couldn't wait, could you?

Bianca: Not who you were expecting?

Ryan: Aw, even better. Hey, how you feeling? You look gorgeous.

Bianca: Thank you. I'm working my way back. Do you have a few minutes?

Ryan: Yeah. For you, anything.

Bianca: I need to talk to you about Kendall and Greenlee.

Greenlee: Myrtle? This is the last one, and the color's just about right. What do you think?

Kendall: Depends on the occasion.

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Babe: If you and Adam are going to gang up on me, then maybe there shouldn't even be a wedding at all.

Liza: Krystal Carey is bad news! I'm trying to protect you.

Greenlee: I still won't share my news, but it would serve you right if I did.

Bianca: If I insist that clause be taken out, will you take Kendall back?
