Proofread by Gisele
Waitress: Your ginger ale.
Erica: Oh, thank you. Well, if it isn't Mr. Jackpot Montgomery.
Jack: Oh, "Jackpot" Montgomery -- I like that, I like that. I'm feeling lucky. I'm feeling especially lucky if you'll be my date for this little soirée.
Erica: Oh, I'd say the odds are definitely in your favor.
Babe: Hi, excuse me. I seem to have lost my husband -- J.R. Chandler. Do you know who he is?
Waitress: Yes, ma'am.
Babe: By any chance, have you seen him?
Waitress: Sorry. Champagne?
Babe: You know what? No, I'll pass. I've got a baby onboard.
Maria: Come on, come on. Something, something, something. Where? Where, where, where? Ah -- aha.
Zach: Hi. Can I help you find something?
Kendall: Why are you hiding?
Bobby: That's why.
Greenlee: We weren't supposed to do that.
Ryan: Third page of the prenup.
Greenlee: In black and white.
Ryan: I'm not sorry.
Greenlee: Neither am I.
Ryan: But if we keep it up --
Greenlee: We'll break our contract.
Ryan: And then where will we be?
Greenlee: In breach.
Ryan: Right, the whole platonic, the whole "just friends" bit -- I mean, total bust.
Greenlee: We've worked so hard to make this work. It'll screw everything up.
Greenlee: Maybe we should just forget it, act like it never happened.
Bobby: Kendall, let go. I can't feel my fingers. What was that for?
Kendall: This is your fault!
Bobby: I just got here.
Ryan: This isn't right.
Greenlee: Totally wrong.
Ryan: But, I mean, we can't ignore it.
Greenlee: Kind of hard to.
Ryan: So then -- well, I mean, we obviously just -- things have changed, that's all, since -- you know, between us, since the contract, since we drew up the contract.
Greenlee: What I said -- to forget it, act like it never happened? I can't.
Ryan: I don't want to.
Greenlee: So now what?
Ryan: Now we talk. I mean, we -- we really talk. About tonight, about -- about the kiss, and about what it means to us for the future.
Greenlee: That's a lot to talk about.
Ryan: And there's nothing that I want more, but there's just so much going on tonight with the fundraiser and Bianca.
Greenlee: Yeah. It's her night, not ours.
Ryan: Yeah, and I want to be able to focus only on us, and I want to do that as soon as possible.
Greenlee: I'd like that. Ryan: Yeah. I'd better get back inside. Because?
Ryan: Well, because I have to check on the security arrangements.
Greenlee: I thought Zach Slater was handling all of that.
Ryan: Well, who's in charge of the security on Zach Slater?
Ryan: Maybe I could take this as a weapon just in case.
Greenlee: You won't need it. I'll drop it in the room.
Ryan: Ok. Thanks again. I -- I really liked my surprise.
Greenlee: I'll be in in a few minutes, ok?
Ryan: Yeah, ok.
Bobby: Yeah, they were all over each other. They should just get a room. Oh, lucky them -- they already have one.
Kendall: Would you stop it? Stop it! I have to think.
Bobby: There's no use going after Greenlee now.
Kendall: Yes, there is. There is. It is crunch time, Bobby, ok? Now, crunch Greenlee, as planned and already paid for.
Bobby: There's no room for anyone to get between those two.
Kendall: What, what, you think that was love? No! No, no, no. All I saw was pent-up sex drive. Now, listen, there's still time. There's still time for you to go and make your moves on Greenlee, but we have to be fast.
Bobby: I'm all out here, Kendall, ok? I mean, she's all about Ryan. I don't have a chance.
Kendall: Well, neither will your marriage if you bail on me.
Bobby: Look, we can work something out here.
Kendall: If you break this deal, those steamy photos of you and Greenlee will fall flat into your wife's hot little hands.
Bobby: Yeah, even if you know that nothing happened. Wow, you're a piece of work.
Kendall: Thank you. Now, pay attention. We have things to do. This is what we're going to do.
Erica: I'm just so worried about Kendall. I mean, she's completely crazed because she seems to have lost Ryan to Greenlee.
Erica: I mean, I tried to get her to see reality, but --
Jack: No dice? Terrible pun. I'm sorry. But as long as I brought up the subject, what do you say we visit the baccarat table?
Erica: Well, now, you are not taking this very seriously.
Jack: Yes, I am. I just want to spend some time with my good luck charm. What do you say?
Erica: Why not? Oh. Bianca just got back and she looks very upset. I just -- I'll be right back.
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Where are you going, my queen of hearts?
Erica: Jack, you don't understand what she's been through already tonight. I just have to make sure that she's all right.
Jack: Erica, stop. Stop.
Jack: Take a deep breath. Ok?
Jack: Look, I love that you love your daughters so much and that you will do anything you can to help them, but you need to help yourself, too.
Erica: I'm fine.
Jack: Yes, you are. But you just got over a bit of a rough patch. And I think that it would be good if you would just give yourself some time.
Erica: That's very sweet of you. I really appreciate your concern, but --
Jack: No buts. Look, whatever Kendall is up to, Greenlee can handle her, believe me, and Bianca can certainly take care of herself.
Bianca: Did you just say that you're pregnant?
Babe: I didn't realize anybody was around.
Bianca: I -- I can't believe it! After what J.R. has done?
Babe: Don't freak out. It's not what you think, I swear to you.
Bianca: What I think is that you've lost your mind.
Zach: What are you looking for?
Maria: The real reason that you're here in Pine Valley.
Zach: I've told you!
Maria: Yeah, but that's all BS! You're not here for me and you're not here for this casino! I know you're here for some other reason, so why -- why can't you just tell me? Yeah, well, what wrong are you here to right? Those are not my words, Zach. Those are yours.
Zach: I won't involve you.
Maria: What if -- ahem -- what if I offer you something in return?
Babe: Bianca, I'm not.
Bianca: But you just said you were.
Babe: Can we just go somewhere and talk about it?
Bianca: All right, if you start making sense.
Erica: It's exquisite!
Jack: There's an inscription.
Erica: Oh. "One day at a time."
Erica: Oh, Jack. Oh, my goodness, Jack! Thank you so much --
Jack: You're welcome.
Erica: For this and -- and for having so much faith in me. Oh, Jack, I just love it! Oh, come here!
Kendall: We have to talk.
Ryan: Why don't you try back in another lifetime?
Kendall: If you don't talk to me, I'll do something desperate.
Ryan: Kendall, you already slept with my brother. That kind of takes the sting out of your threats. You want to be careful, please?
Kendall: I mean it, Ryan.
Ryan: Ok, fine. You go ahead because I'm immune to your stunts and your psychosis, so give it your best shot and I'll still be standing.
Kendall: Great fundraiser. Good cause. Lots of glitz, important people. It'd be an awful shame if it blew up right in your face.
Ryan: This is Bianca's event, Kendall. You would really ruin your sister's fundraiser?
Kendall: It'd be on your head. You could've stopped it.
Ryan: Yeah, well, nothing's going to happen.
Kendall: I don't know. Ethan's wound pretty tight up. I could light a match under him and tell him that you lied about his uncle's body. Hey, maybe it's buried under the roulette wheel there. And then Zach -- I mean, Zach seems pretty low on humor tonight. God knows something should combust there with him.
Ryan: You'd really do it, wouldn't you? You would really ruin your sister's night?
Kendall: Are you a gambling man? I -- no, I could strip. I could strip for you, for everyone. Of course, I'd dedicate it all to you. I could.
Kendall: You know what? Point me to the nearest pole. I'm sure there's one nearby. I'll show you all my new moves if you can catch me.
Jack: Lily. Hello? Hi, sweetheart. What is it? What is it? I can't hear her. I'm going to have to go over here.
Erica: Ok, you go ahead.
Jack: Honey --
Waitress: Another ginger ale?
Erica: No, no, thank you. Uh, Greenlee?
Greenlee: Hello, Erica. You look happy.
Erica: Thank you. You have kind of a glow yourself.
Erica: Greenlee, you and I obviously have never gotten along very well, but I want you to know something. I want you to know that I love Jackson very, very much and we're going to get it right this time.
Greenlee: Last time you broke his heart.
Erica: And I am going to do everything I can to heal it. As a matter of fact, I was hoping that you and I could have some sort of a -- a friendly truce, at least not cause any bleeding when we're in the same room.
Greenlee: So far, nobody's bleeding.
Erica: Then you won't mind if I offer you a bit of friendly advice? Greenlee, you've set yourself up for serious hurt.
Greenlee: Ok, Erica, we did the nice. Now spill. What do you know?
Ryan: Ok, Kendall, go ahead, let me have it. Where's the big grandstand threat? You didn't get your ration of attention for the day? Not my problem.
Kendall: I saw you and Greenlee in the gazebo.
Kendall: "So"? It was a pathetic attempt to make everyone think that your marriage is real.
Ryan: Because you are the expert on reality.
Kendall: Please, Ryan, your marriage is nothing more than a piece of paper and a few rings. We both know that's all it'll ever be.
Ryan: Kendall, the kiss was legit, and I plan to take it to the next step. My marriage to Greenlee is going to be everything that it's supposed to be.
Kendall: Based on what, sex? Because you haven't gotten any in a while and Greenlee is the best and closest thing you can do in a pinch? Ryan, your brain is turning to pudding!
Ryan: No, no, no, no, no. You see, I have never been clearer on anything. My feelings for Greenlee are as real as they can be.
Zach: Don't do this, Maria. Don't try to play me after what we had.
Maria: We never lied to each other.
Zach: I don't want to lie to you now.
Maria: Yeah, well, then tell me what's going on and what you're up to.
Zach: Did Edmund come up with this?
Zach: Huh? Make you go through my desk, through my files? Is that what a wife does for her loving husband?
Maria: No, Edmund doesn't know anything about this. I'm here on my own.
Zach: Oh. Ok. What were you hoping to find?
Maria: Anything, any little thing! I really need to find -- I need to know if you're here for --
Zach: What? What?
Maria: I --
Zach: To kill someone? That would help you, wouldn't it?
Maria: What do you mean, that would help me? What's that supposed to mean?
Zach: If you can prove I'm evil, maybe you can let me go.
Maria: I don't need to prove anything to you to let you go. Already done that.
Zach: But here you are.
Maria: Yeah, because I want to know.
Zach: You want to know. You want to know, so you offer yourself to me?
Maria: No, that wasn't the offer!
Zach: It wasn't? Let's get something clear. I'm not interested in spending alone time with you in exchange for information. You know what? You're right. I do want to be with you, but only if you want to be with me, the way we were when the only thing you wanted from me was to love you.
Maria: I was a different person then, Zach!
Zach: Different name! Same fire. Man. You're trying so hard to bury the past. But I can't believe that you've forgotten what it felt like to live only for each other, to fall asleep in each other's arms, make love at dawn. Those are my memories.
Maria: I can't do this. I -- I can't do this with you, Zach.
Concierge: Excuse me. Are you Maria Grey?
Concierge: I've been trying to find you. Your husband is looking for you. He wants you to meet him in room 313 in the hotel's back wing.
Maria: Thanks. Thank you.
Bianca: You caught J.R. putting birth control pills in your orange juice?
Babe: David saw him do it. So I had another glass of OJ tested, and it was true.
Bianca: Oh, my God. That's -- that's so evil!
Babe: And I just -- I wigged out. I winged it and I told him that I was preggers just to see how he'd react.
Babe: And he was -- he wasn't psyched. He was more surprised, but he was happy. You know, I don't even know what to think anymore.
Bianca: Yes, you do. You just don't want to. You don't want to believe that J.R. is capable of this, of any of it. But, Babe, honestly, who else could've done it? The sooner you accept the truth about J.R., the better.
Babe: I know. And I'm -- I'm, like, 90% there. It's just -- it's just making that last final step to rock-solid sure, I --
Bianca: Babe, this would make it the second time that J.R. has drugged you. The pills may be less lethal, but the intent is just as bad. You and Jamie both almost died. What more do you need?
Babe: To see for myself. To hear it from J.R.
Bianca: Babe, I never thought I'd say this, but I'm scared of J.R. and I think you should be, too.
Greenlee: Let me guess. The person who's out to hurt me -- Kendall.
Bobby: Erica. How are you?
Erica: Bobby. Well, my goodness, I was beginning to think that you were avoiding me.
Bobby: Oh, not a chance. It's -- it's just been really busy. A place like this -- getting it up and running takes a lot of hours.
Erica: Oh, yes, I can imagine.
Bobby: You -- you look great.
Erica: Well, thank you. Sobriety does wonders.
Bobby: Being home agrees with you. Look, I hate to interrupt, but can I borrow Greenlee for a minute?
Erica: Oh, well, only if I can borrow you first. You don't mind, do you, Greenlee?
Greenlee: Be my guest.
Bobby: Don't go anywhere, ok? Ahem. So, what's on your mind?
Erica: My daughter Kendall. Bobby, look, I know that we didn't part company on the best of terms, but I am so grateful to you for everything you did for me in Vegas. I mean, I was lost, and thanks to you, you kept me just this side of no return. So now I really would like to help you if I can.
Bobby: Thanks, but I'm not lost. I'm -- I'm home. I am on terra firma and it feels good.
Erica: You've gotten close to Kendall and to Greenlee, so that combination -- that could really just pull the terra firma right from under you.
Bobby: Um, why are you all over this?
Erica: Just a word of caution. If you hurt my daughter or Jackson's, you'll be sorry.
Bobby: Did I mention that I'm back together with my wife?
Erica: Good. I'm very glad to hear that. I hope it lasts this time.
Bobby: Well, you take care. Have a great evening, ok? Ahem -- you trying to sneak off?
Greenlee: I'm waiting for Ryan.
Bobby: Oh, I -- I just saw him.
Greenlee: So did I.
Greenlee: We were at the gazebo. It was incredible. You were wrong about him, Bobby. I am not the consolation prize. Ryan is over Kendall. He loves me. I know it!
Bobby: Did he say he loved you?
Greenlee: No, but he will.
Bobby: Uh -- I need you to come with me.
Greenlee: But I don't want to miss Ryan.
Bobby: You won't, I promise.
Greenlee: What? What's going on?
Bobby: Just -- just come with me. Please. You need to see something. All right?
Kendall: Ryan, you can't fool me, ok? There is no -- there's no way that you have real feelings for Greenlee.
Ryan: I do.
Kendall: You're best friends. Ok? You're best friends. She comes when you call for her. She's -- she's your best in show, not the love of your life.
Ryan: I tell you what -- you think whatever you want to think, but I know how I feel.
Kendall: No, you know what? You -- you're trying way too hard to feel something for Greenlee more, I mean, than -- than just gratitude. You're trying way too hard. I have to say, though, that kiss -- that kiss was a great effort -- good! I mean, you had me going there, A-plus. I mean, you almost convinced yourself. But come on. Ryan, deep down, I mean, we both know. We both know it's not happening. You could spend a million sunsets with her. It's really just the sun going down, really.
Ryan: Tonight was a lot more than that, Kendall. I knew that when I was with Greenlee that we had what it takes.
Kendall: Yeah -- friendship with a little side effect/side benefit of sex. That's very, very sweet.
Ryan: Kendall, not friendship. Honest-to-God love. I love her. I love Greenlee.
Bianca: Babe, I know you love J.R. but that doesn't change what he's done.
Babe: I -- I remember the night that I first met him, down to the very exact minute. I was on this dock in San Diego -- no money and no friends. And there was no way I was going to let myself run back to Mama again. Nowhere to go but down. And the water -- it didn't seem so bad. But then I heard this noise, and I turned around. And there he was, like -- like he was there for me, just when I needed him the most.
Bianca: You thought that he was the answer to your prayers.
Babe: Bianca, he was the very first man that just loved me straight out. He gave me hope. He gave me my life back. And I gave him the only thing that I could. I gave him my heart, completely, and I guess that's why, despite everything, J.R. still has it.
Bianca: He doesn't deserve it, Babe. Not anymore.
Babe: He was all that I ever, ever wanted. And he was actually more than I ever thought that I could get. I know that it sounds so cheesy, but he's my world, Bianca. And if it turns out that he's exactly what everybody says that he is, that girl that he saved on the dock, the one who gave him her heart -- she'll die.
Bianca: No. No, she won't. She won't die. She won't die. She's got enough heart to make it through ten lifetimes. You're going to survive, Babe. I'm going to make sure of it. I'm going to be with you every step of the way.
Babe: No, you won't. But you will be there for Bess.
Erica: Greenlee was just here looking for Ryan, who left with Kendall to go God knows where.
Jack: Erica, don't -- don't get involved.
Erica: Look, I just have to tell you. I mean, Kendall is just completely on the warpath, Greenlee is right in her path.
Jack: Hey. One day at a time. I can promise you a night that you won't soon forget if you'll allow me. What do you say?
Erica: I'm yours.
Jack: Hmm, that's the right answer. First --
Erica: What's your pleasure?
Jack: We get out of here to start with. Come on, you.
Erica: Where are we going?
Jack: In search of deja vu.
Maria: Edmund? Hon-- honey, are you in there? Ed--
Kendall: You're a fraud. You are such a fraud! You're a fraud! You're hiding behind Greenlee because you can't face the truth about us!
Ryan: Yes -- actually, Kendall, yes, I can. It's over. And since you're obviously not performing a pole dance in front of the entire crowd, I'm going to get out of here, and I suggest that you pack up your desperation and you go home.
Ryan: You know, that's not very funny.
Kendall: Oh, well, you know, I paid off the right employee, got all -- everything I need, the combo, right here in my little head.
Ryan: Great. Well, then, open the door!
Kendall: Sorry! Not until I'm done with you.
Greenlee: Why did you bring me here?
Bobby: I wanted you to see this. Where's that remote?
Greenlee: It's not even a flat-screen. Big whoop.
Ryan: Would you just grow up and unlock the door!
Kendall: Ahem. Well, what's wrong, Ryan? I thought -- I thought that you liked to be in close quarters with me.
Ryan: Well, Kendall, we're over. It's time that you accept that.
Kendall: Sorry. Can't. Let's see -- maybe it's just jammed. Here, let me reach this.
Ryan: Hey, I tell you what, I tell you what -- you unlock the door, or I break it down.
Bobby: It's a surveillance monitor.
Greenlee: I'm not really into reality TV.
Bobby: Well, you might be after this.
Greenlee: What, cheaters at the craps table? Someone palming cards in the poker pit?
Bobby: Nope. It's Ryan.
Greenlee: Well, no cheater there.
Bobby: Yeah. I saw him go into a private gaming room with Kendall.
Kendall: I'm sorry. Ryan, I just -- I screwed up again.
Ryan: Oh, ok, so you feel bad -- great. Unlock the door.
Kendall: Just let me apologize, ok? You don't deserve this. You don't. It's just I saw you with Greenlee and that was it. That was it -- my auto psycho pilot just took over.
Ryan: Hey, you ok?
Kendall: I'm fine. I'm just -- I've been working so hard on the whole signature fragrance thing and I just -- I haven't slept very much. I don't -- I can't really remember the last time I ate.
Ryan: All right, well, then why don't you unlock the door and we'll go get some food.
Kendall: Ryan, I don't feel well. I don't feel well. I feel like I'm going to pass out, Ryan. I think I'm going to pass out, Ryan.
Ryan: Oh, great --
Kendall: Ryan --
Ryan: Just sit. Sit. Sit, sit.
Bobby: You don't need to see any more.
Ryan: What? What the hell -- what was that?
Kendall: Was it as good for you as it was for me?
Ryan: Hey, get -- would you -- I don't love you anymore!
Kendall: That was good. That was good. That was a good imitation.
Ryan: No, listen to me -- I love Greenlee.
Kendall: It was a good imitation, Ryan.
Ryan: Do you understand that? Can you get that through your thick skull?
Kendall: No. No, no, no, no, no, Ryan. No, you are wrong. This is about me, ok? This is all about me. You are doing this to get back at me, Ryan! I'm the one that you love! I'm the one that you want, Ryan!
Ryan: Let me ask you something -- are you deaf? Because I told you that I want to be Greenlee's husband -- do you understand? I want the kids with her. I want the cat and the dog and the house and the whole thing, and I want it with Greenlee!
Ryan: Kendall, no matter where we are, no matter what we're doing, we're connected.
Kendall: No. No, not like we're connected.
Ryan: We're just -- she's taken me to a whole new place, Kendall, and it feels right. It feels like home. You understand?
Kendall: No, I'm sorry. Security -- you'll be bored to death, all right, Ryan? Security -- security is not love, Ryan!
Ryan: You know, I feel sorry for you, Kendall. I really do because you're so desperate to be loved, and yet you incinerate anybody that comes close to you.
Kendall: No, you are desperate! You are desperate! You are pathetic if you think that you can substitute Greenlee for me, ok? You think that Greenlee's going to be the perfect little wife to you? You are so wrong!
Greenlee: I'm such a fool.
Bobby: No. No, you're not.
Greenlee: All this time, I thought -- tonight on the gazebo --
Bobby: Ok, I'm -- I'm sorry. I hate this. This was stupid.
Greenlee: You're just the messenger.
Bobby: I didn't want to be the one to have to do this to you.
Greenlee: I did it to myself. Ryan told me that he was over Kendall, and I believed him because I wanted to. I mean, he never said the l word, but I really thought that he was starting to love me back.
Zach: What do you think?
Maria: Oh, my -- this -- this is perfect.
Zach: You're perfect.
Maria: How'd you find this place?
Zach: I was out riding one day and I came over the ridge, and there it was, just paradise in the middle of nowhere, wild and lost. So I found the owner and I bought it the same day.
Maria: Just like that?
Zach: Just like that. And you know what? I didn't really know why until I saw you on the side of the road, in the middle of nowhere, wild and lost. I think -- I think I bought it for us. Does that scare you?
Maria: No. Excellent, and I get a key!
Zach: And a compass.
Maria: And a compass?
Zach: Because I never want you to be lost again. You're home.
Jack: May I have this dance? Come on. I promise I won't step on your toes.
Singers: Hold on through the night
Singer: I'll be waiting here for you
Singers: I'll be waiting here for you
Jack: I do love you so.
Bianca: Don't worry, Babe. If you leave J.R., you and I will both be there for Bess.
Babe: Before I do anything, I -- I need to know for sure exactly how J.R. feels about me.
Bianca: Babe, I know what you hope it is.
Babe: It's just so hard. He's -- he does every single thing right. He's romantic and he tells me that he loves me every single day. If this is all a lie, I just -- I need to catch J.R. I need to look in his eyes and see it for myself, and then I'll be able to let go of -- heck, I'll even be able to kick him to the moon.
Bianca: Good. I'll help, and I got a pretty mean kick myself.
Babe: You are the best friend. I mean, you've done so much for me, and I -- I just wish that I was a better friend.
Bianca: Better friend? I couldn't have a better friend.
Babe: I owe you so much. And when this is all over, I'll be that friend, the friend that you've always deserved. I promise you, Bianca, I will finally give back to you.
Zach: What do you think?
Ryan: I've had it, Kendall!
Kendall: Ryan --
Ryan: No, I'm calling security!
Kendall: Listen, don't get extreme, all right? I'll let you out.
Bobby: It'll be ok. Ok? You'll get through this. Ryan doesn't deserve you.
Greenlee: Is this where you say "I told you so"?
Bobby: Oh, God, Greenlee, I would never -- I would never say that.
Greenlee: Well, you should. You said he didn't love me. Did you know that it would hurt this much?
Bobby: I'm so sorry.
Kendall: All right, you are so sure of your love and the way you feel about Greenlee. Well, why don't you come with me, then? Come with me. I dare you.
Ryan: Not interested.
Kendall: Oh, really? You're afraid! That's what it is, Ryan. You're totally, totally afraid. And you know what, I will prove to you that Greenlee is not the woman that you think she is. Come with me. Come with me and I will show you that you cannot trust her.
Greenlee: No, I don't want this. I don't -- I don't want this to be happening. I don't want to feel like this.
Bobby: Yeah, ok. What can I do?
Greenlee: Make it all go away. The hurt, Kendall, Ryan -- I just want to forget that they exist. Can you make me forget?
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Babe: A pregnancy test?
J.R.: Let's find out for sure if we're having another baby.
Zach: It drives me crazy being here with you and not making love to you.
Kendall: Let's see what Greenlee's doing behind her hubby's back.
Bobby: Oh, Greenlee, I want you.
