Ryan: "You are the victim." Is the game over already. You're here to kill me?

Aidan: Paranoid, aren't you?

Ryan: Well, Slaterís idea of a party.

Aidan: Most people settle for charades.

An: Yeah, well, I'm the victim. Guy's got a sense of humor.

Aidan: Especially for a dead guy.

Ryan: What are you talking about? He's alive.

Aidan: Yeah, in the game. In reality, Zach Slater died 10 years ago.

Ryan: What? Slater died? Are you sure?

Aidan: Sure as I can be about anything concerning this guy.

Maria: I want an answer, Zach. What is this? What are you doing?

Zach: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Maria: Oh, my God. Great, you're the wizard of odds. Ok, I want an explanation about this.

Zach: Well, come on in. Watch closely. We have suspect, we have the victim, the killer. Murder's in the air tonight.

Erica: Don't be a bad sport, David. I caught you.

David: Erica, this is not what you think. Just -- just go away. Come on.

Erica: And lose? Not a chance.

David: I guarantee you, there is nothing here to win.

Erica: David, the more people who win, the more money is donated, so drop the attitude and tell me about the crate.

David: If you really want to win, just -- just go play somewhere else.

Erica: Why would I do that? You're the murderer. I busted you. There's a body in here right? Show me the body.

David: Forget it.

Erica: Ok, if you won't, I will.

David: Erica, hands off.

Bianca: You want me to rein in my sister?

Greenlee: Herd, corral, straitjacket -- whatever it takes.

Bianca: Let me guess -- you want me to get Kendall out of the way so that you can have a straight shot at Ryan's heart. I don't think so.

Greenlee: I've already got his heart.

Bianca: Well, then you don't need me.

Greenlee: Bianca, you have to save us from Kendall.

Ryan's voice: I'm sorry.

Kendall's voice: Kendall --

Erica's voice: Say Ryan loves you.

Kendall's voice: Kendall!

Bianca's voice: Kendall, you never win.

Kendall's voice: Kendall --

Greenlee's voice: To hurt people, just to see them in pain.

Ryan's voice: You're so desperate.

Kendall's voice: Kendall --

Bianca's voice: You're the one who always ends up getting hurt.

Kendall's voice: Kendall --

Ryan's voice: You incinerate anyone who comes close to you.

Kendall's voice: Kendall -- Kendall -- Kendall -- Kendall -- Kendall --

Aidan: Look, Edmund's source confirms that the real Zach Slater died 10 years ago.

Ryan: Hits just keep coming, huh?

Aidan: He wants to fill us in at the bar, so --

Ryan: What about Ramsey? Any updates on him?

Aidan: His oxford education seems solid. But Ethan was worried that you're going to find out about the only glitch -- or apparent glitch -- in his past. One that he'll admit to, anyway.

Ryan: Well, how bad it is?

Aidan: Just him and a couple of college boys got busted running a pyramid scheme.

Ryan: Any hard time?

Aidan: He was arrested but not charged. A technicality.

Ryan: Oh. So Ethan has attempted at least one con already.

Aidan: And screwed it up.

Ryan: Which means he's going to be more careful this time around, doesn't it?

Aidan: Maybe. But his temper works against him. You could be caught in the crossfire, Ryan.

Ryan: Yeah, well, that's exactly where I like to be. At least I know where I stand.

Aidan: Be careful. And watch your back. I mean it. Anyway, you ready to hit the bar?

Ryan: No, you know what? I'll catch up with you. I got something I got to check out first.

Aidan: Um -- just before you go -- do you think our grifter is connected to Slater?

Ryan: I would bet my life on it.

Maria: So this is why you volunteered to have this fundraiser. Because you wanted everybody to play this game?

Zach: It's much more than that.

Maria: Yeah, well, what is it? Why this game, and why these people? What is this? What could you possibly stand to gain from this?

Zach: The truth.

Maria: About what?

Zach: Look at them. Behind all those pretty faces and easy money, they're just twisted, selfish liars.

Maria: Great, and it's your job to flush them all out into the open?

Zach: Oh, no, no, no -- not all of them. Only the ones that deserve it.

Ah. Prime example in all her glory.

Maria: What, Erica? You're not going to get an argument from me.

Zach: Internationally famous, model, entrepreneur, philanthropist. She has the ability to do so much good. But then when her own daughter was mourning the loss of her child, she was in Vegas, center stage. Living a dream. Hayward. He's the lowest of all of them. He poisons people with sick concoctions. A man who doesn't care if he destroys lives and loves. Two of them that poison everything they touch.

David: Erica, I'm not kidding. What's inside this crate is none of your business.

Erica: What have you done now, David?

[Zach chuckles]

Zach: Look at that. It's getting ugly already. Tonight I will strip away their masks and reveal who they really are.

Erica: Why are you being like this?

David: So let it go. Please?

Erica: This isn't about the game at all, is it?

David: There are all kinds of games, Erica.

Erica: And what's yours?

David: All you need to know is that the stakes are life and death.

Erica: Is there someone in this crate?

David: Erica, leave. Pretend that you never saw me.

Erica: I can't do that.

David: Of course you can. We've done it before, remember? A year ago today, as a matter of fact. We both pretended that we were never at Michael Cambias' condo.

Greenlee: Bianca, you can't walk away from this. Kendall has totally flipped out.

Bianca: You got Ryan, and you never let her forget it. What do you expect her to do, send you flowers?

Greenlee: I didn't expect her to pay someone to seduce me.

Bianca: What?

Greenlee: Paid him and blackmailed him. She took some pictures of us that made it look like we were doing something together. She threatened to show his wife, just to make him suffer some more.

Bianca: Wow, who would agree to do something so sleazy?

Greenlee: That's not important. What is important is that he couldn't go through with it, and he told me everything. And that was just the beginning. Kendall came on to Ryan, and she made sure that I saw it. She's taking desperate to a whole new level.

Bianca: Well, tell me that you didn't make it worse. Oh, God, Greenlee, what did you do?

Greenlee: I just broke into her room to get these blackmail pictures she had on the guy to help him. She caught me and she went ballistic.

Bianca: Maybe because you broke into her room.

Greenlee: That's not the point. She freaked out. She swore she would get Ryan away from me.

Bianca: That's nothing you haven't heard before.

Greenlee: But you know what? She had a different look in her eyes this time.

Bianca: She's hurt. She loves Ryan.

Greenlee: She told me to get a bulletproof vest. Should I get one in my size?

Bianca: Please, Greenlee, just step back. Try to understand where Kendall's coming from.

Greenlee: She's headed for the cracker house.

Bianca: Kendall has spent her whole life trying to be loved and accepted.

Greenlee: Ugh -- haven't we all?

Bianca: Kendall has these huge issues that she still needs to deal with. And sometimes, she's so afraid of getting hurt that she -- she goes too far. She pushes too hard.

Greenlee: So I should just, what, accept it and see if flak jackets come in petites?

Bianca: When Kendall wants something, she throws her entire heart into it until she gets it, even if all the odds are against her.

Greenlee: She tips the odds against herself.

Bianca: I know. Sometimes Kendall is self-destructive, but she's actually very strong.

Greenlee: Well, she should use it for the good.

Bianca: She does. She has. She's the reason that I kept my baby. Because I saw how -- how much pain that she had been through, but I also saw how strong it had made her.

Greenlee: It made her a whack job.

Bianca: Kendall is upset. She lost Ryan to you, and then you flaunt it in her face.

Greenlee: I can't help it if we work together.

Bianca: Oh, come on, Greenlee. You wave it in front of her like a cape in front of a bull.

Greenlee: You know what, I'm not going to tiptoe around my life just because Kendall can't accept the fact that Ryan loves me.

Bianca: Just leave her alone. Let her deal with this on her own. She will. She will deal with this her own way on her own time.

Greenlee: You know, I know you think you know her so well, but I know her well, too. We got close at one time, believe it or not. So you're wrong. Kendall is different -- bad different. And I'll be damned if she's going to hurt me or Ryan ever again.

[Ryan pants]

Ryan: Ok. Here you go. Kendall, what were you doing out there?

Kendall: You came for me. You saved me. You saved my life. You saved me from the edge.

Ryan: Well, you're lucky I was here.

Kendall: No, you -- you pulled me away from the edge. Ryan, I knew that you would. I knew -- I knew that you would. Ryan, I love you. I love you so much, Ryan. I love you.

Ethan: What is wrong with you?

Kendall: Ryan?

Ethan: Hardly.

Kendall: Ethan?

Ethan: Well, I'm glad you can see. You clearly weren't thinking, Kendall. What the hell were you trying to pull? It's Ryan, isn't it? He did this to you. He pushed you to this. Kendall --

Kendall: Don't -- don't -- don't let Ryan do this to you. Don't -- don't let him do this to you. Don't -- don't let him think that you're not entitled to what's yours. Don't listen to him when he says that you're not worthy and that you don't deserve this. You have to -- you have to fight him. You have to fight him, and you have to fight them with everything you've got!

Ethan: I'll --

Kendall: Don't let them break you!

Ethan: I'll handle Lavery.

Kendall: No, no! No, no, no! You can't trust Ryan. You can't trust anybody. You can't even trust the people that love you. They -- they don't understand, ok? They try, but they don't understand. They want to keep you in a neat little box, and it's not right.

Ethan: Hey, nobody is going to hold me down, ok? But right now, Kendall -- right now, I'm worried about you.

Kendall: I'm fine, I'm fine. What?

Ethan: You're not, ok? The cut on your hand, now this? I can keep you from sharp objects, sweetheart, but I can't move the ocean. Listen, you promise me -- you promise me you're staying out. Promise me.

Kendall: Fine.

Ethan: Look, I know you've got it in for Ryan and Greenlee, ok? But right now, Kendall, from what I can see, the only person getting hurt is you.

Kendall: Oh, and you sound just like them! You sound just like them! You, of all people, should understand -- we have to fight for what's ours, for what we deserve. If we don't, we'll lose everything. I can't let that happen.

Ethan: Ok, and you can't stay here. You're soaking wet. You need some dry clothes. Come on.

Kendall: No, no, no.

Ethan: Let me take you back to your room so you can change.

Kendall: No! No! I have to play the game. I have to fight, and I have to win. I have to.

Erica: Why did you bring up Michael Cambias?

David: Because that night at his condo, we trusted each other. Everything we did was for Bianca.

Erica: So what? You expect me to believe there's some connection between this box and Bianca?

David: I need you to trust me once more.

Erica: Why? What's going on, David?

David: This is for Bianca. Again. So I'm asking you to please accept that, Erica, and walk away.

Erica: All right.

David: Thank you. Whew.

[Vehicle approaches]

David: Right on time.

Ryan: Hey.

Aidan: Hey.

Ryan: So what do we got?

Edmund: We got more answers.

Aidan: And more questions.

Ryan: Wait. Zach Slaterís bio checks out until 10 years ago, but everything that he said happened before that is bogus. All right? So you tell me what you've got on our dead guy. You got that look on your face, Edmund. You found out any more? Am I right?

Edmund: I checked out every Zach Slater I could find.

Aidan: Dead or alive.

Edmund: It turns out one of them died just before our Zach Slater showed up on the radar screen. And guess what -- he died under mysterious circumstances.

Ryan: Well, that's just what I want to hear about a guy I'm playing murder with. So how do we know it's the right Zach Slater? That our man took over this dead guy's identity?

Edmund: Well, it's pretty circumstantial, but I'm convinced.

Ryan: Ok. Let me hear it.

Edmund: Well, I found the old school records of our late Zach Slater. Guess who his roommate and best pal was? Michael Cambias.

Maria: So that's what this is about, isn't it? Every single one of these people has something -- somehow has something to do with Michael Cambias' death. So you -- you invite them here -- you invite them here for this fundraiser. It's on the anniversary of Michael Cambias' death. And you throw them all into a murder game?

Zach: I promised stellar entertainment.

Maria: Well, you're the only one who's enjoying this, Zach!

Zach: Oh, give it a chance. It's just getting started.

Maria: No, no, no, no. That's -- the guests and the timing and the game -- none of this is a coincidence. This is -- what is Michael Cambias to you?

Erica: Oh, Bianca --

Zach: Oh, will you look at that?

Erica: Are you ok?

Zach: Erica returns to protect her young. And Mrs. Lavery had a slam-bang moment at the trial. Tore the clothes right off the prime suspect right on the stand. And I don't think she'll disappoint tonight.

Bianca: Greenlee thinks that Kendall is unstable.

Erica: In your expert opinion.

Greenlee: No, I didn't say that Kendall was unstable. She's a whack job. The cheese finally slid off her cracker.

Erica: Ok, honey, why don't we get some ginger ale?

Greenlee: That's it? You don't care what's happening to Kendall? She's not just crazy, she's dangerous. She's launched to another orbit.

Erica: And who launched her, Greenlee?

Greenlee: You may think that I manipulated my way into my marriage, but Ryan and I had solid reasons for tying the knot, and we're really in love. Kendall should accept that and move on.

Bianca: Greenlee, you stole the man that she intended to spend the rest of her life with. It really can't surprise you that she's hurt and angry.

Greenlee: This is different. The woman that threatened me today isn't just hurt and angry. Kendall has lost it. Nobody's safe.

Erica: Well, then I suggest you stay out of her way.

Greenlee: Hide? No, that's not my style. I will take her on to protect Ryan and what we've got, but I need your help. We've got to get her under control and out of our lives before she really hurts somebody. What is with the two of you? Kendall needs help.

Erica: Who exactly do you think you are, asking that Kendall get help? You're the one who caused most of her problems.

Greenlee: You want to blame me? Fine. But something needs to be done about Kendall.

Erica: You shattered something in my daughter that has never healed!

Greenlee: I'm sorry about that.

Erica: Sorry? You haven't stopped! You know how much Kendall loves Ryan, but you torture her every chance you get. She fights back, and you come running to us for help?

Greenlee: No, wait a minute, wait a minute. Back up. You -- you warned me about her, Erica. You were worried that she might do something. I thought that you wanted us to get along. You know, I'm not exactly feeling the love.

Erica: Oh -- don't you dare try to play the victim here, Greenlee. Kendall is trying to survive the best way she knows how, and I won't let you hurt her anymore!

Greenlee: Hurt her? My God, you've both lost it.

Erica: No, we're just tired of your scheming.

Greenlee: Ok, believe what you want.

[Erica sighs]

Greenlee: But Kendall is on a one-way trip to psycho-land, and I'm worried about what she might do to herself.

Erica: Oh, your concern is overwhelming.

Greenlee: Your daughter is blackmailing people, threatening them, and she's working her way to the far side of the moon. Forgive me for being concerned.

Erica: You know, some people might buy this kinder, gentler Greenlee act, but I certainly do not. I will tolerate you for Jackís sake, but you are still the same spoiled, manipulative brat you were when you came to town. So you can just take your phony concern and go somewhere else. Bianca, sweetheart, let's -- let's get out of here.

Greenlee: Bianca, talk to your mother, please. Make her understand.

Bianca: Greenlee, we don't need you to tell us how to live our lives.

Greenlee: Well, you're doing a bang-up job so far.

Erica: I want you to stay away from my daughter, Kendall, do you understand me?

Greenlee: Anywhere near Kendall is the last place I want to be.

Bianca: Well, she's right about one thing, Mom.

[Erica sighs]

Bianca: Kendall is spinning out of control. Now, we can deny it as much as we want to everybody else, but we both know it's true.

Ethan: Forget the game, Kendall. Go to your room.

Kendall: No, no, I can't.

Ethan: Look, you need some dry clothes. A doctor's not a bad idea.

Kendall: No, this -- this is for -- I have to do this for -- for Miranda and for the Center, ok? I have to play and I have to win.

Ethan: Kendall -- Kendall, there is plenty of time to play the game.

Kendall: Here. Help me. What does that mean?

Ethan: All right. "In a shed of tin, you just might win the clue to set you free. Easy to miss, like a lover's kiss, so listen carefully -- my master doesn't want me, my buyer has no use for me, my user never sees me. What am I?" Any ideas?

Kendall: I'll figure it out.

Ethan: All right, well, look -- maybe we should start by finding a shed of tin. Ok?

Kendall: Yes, great. Let's go, then.

Ethan: Ok, great -- after you put on some dry clothes.

Kendall: Fine.

Ethan: Ok?

David: All right. Now, you understand the instructions, right? Because it's absolutely critical that they're followed exactly.

Man: Got it.

David: Good.

Man: I'm going to need a dolly.

David: Yeah, yeah, it's a little heavy. Um -- look, I'll help you load it.

David: Bon voyage, Adam.

Zach: Ah. Isn't technology fascinating?

Edmund: All right, here are copies of Slaterís death certificate -- his last known address.

Maria: You're obsessed.

Zach: Well, I'm not the only one. Look at Devane, Lavery, and your loving husband -- working overtime to find out who I really am.

Maria: I'm almost afraid to find out myself.

Zach: Let's see what the boys are planning.

Aidan: So, the real Zach Slater was best school buddies with Michael Cambias. He kicks the bucket, and our guy takes on a stranger's identity.

Singer: I know a secret

Aidan: It's something. But we're really no closer to finding out who Zach Slater really is, are we, right?

Edmund: Yeah, nothing but dead ends, so to speak.

Aidan: You have any theories?

Ryan: Yeah, I got a theory. How about -- how about this? Slater and Ramsey working together to try and scam Cambias Industries away from me?

Edmund: Makes sense. They're both frauds. They both show up in town around the same time.

Ryan: Yeah, but if they want to come at me, why not just come at me head-on? I mean, what's with all this -- what's with all building trust with Bianca, using the Miranda Center, and slicking his way into Erica's life?

Edmund: Oh, Slater is full of slick, you know? I mean, he's cozied his way up to a few people in this town.

Ryan: Yeah, and now he brings the phony Cambias heir to town, trying to convince anybody who's going to listen.

Aidan: Yeah, but we're onto him, so --

Ryan: But what's the body count going to be before these two guys are finished?

Edmund: Don't worry, we'll get him.

Ryan: And if he thinks he can pull a fast one on me -- you understand? -- If he thinks that he can hurt the people I care about, I'll bury him.

Zach: Listen to Lavery rage. A two-bit con artist --

Maria: No, no, no -- Lavery is a really good guy.

Zach: Yeah?

Maria: Yeah.

Zach: Maybe he's just a good con artist. He picked up Alexander Cambias in the desert one day, and the next thing he knew, he was sitting on his fortune. He could have done it himself just as easily as any of the others. He could have flown to Pine Valley, because no one knew he was in the hospital that night. Done the job and come back. And nobody would be the wiser.

Maria: Zach, what are you talking about? What are you going on and on about? What do you think that Ryan could have done?

Zach: Killed Michael Cambias.

David: All right.

Greenlee: Where is it?

David: Where's what?

Greenlee: Aren't you here because of a clue?

David: Are you?

Greenlee: I'd rather find Ryan, but we're on separate trails. Have you seen him?

David: No, so my evening hasn't been totally ruined yet. Um -- what about that clue?

Greenlee: I'm clueless.

David: Would you mind if I see it?

Greenlee: Oh, please.

David: "If you're there in time, you'll see the crime. A murder oh, most foul." A little heavy-handed, don't you think?

Greenlee: Hmm.

David: "The place to go is riddled below, so don't throw in the towel. Inside out, outside in, wherever can I be? Lovers meet in hushed retreat, with stars their canopy."

Greenlee: Hmm.

David: And this led you here to the maintenance shed?

Greenlee: Any hints?

David: Yeah. Try the gazebo.

Greenlee: Of course. "Inside out, outside in."

David: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: You're brilliant. Thanks.

David: Sure. What's the matter? Second thoughts?

Greenlee: I just want you to know, Ryan and I -- it's for real now. We're in love.

David: Greenlee --

Greenlee: No, no, no -- I know what you're thinking. You think that I'm betraying Leo's memory, that I'm gullible, I'm lonely -- whatever. But, I swear, David, I really, truly believe that Leo sent Ryan to me.

David: The empty antique box? Sometimes empty boxes are just empty boxes.

Greenlee: But not this time. It's for real. I feel it.

David: Look, of course I want you to fall in love again. But with Ryan? It's a mistake, Greenlee.

Greenlee: It's mine to make.

David: I don't want to see you get hurt again.

Greenlee: Look at me, David. My heart is about to burst out of my chest. I can't wipe this stupid grin off my face. Have you seen me like this since Leo died?

David: No. No, I haven't.

Greenlee: I have another chance, David. Another chance at true love to -- to get it right, to make it work, to make it last. Please, be happy for me. Well, if you can't fake happy, at least promise not to screw it up for us?

David: You just deserve so much better.

Greenlee: Look, I love you, too, but this is what I want. Please, David, keep being a great brother-in-law.

David: All right. I'll be happy for you. But if he breaks your heart, I'm going to break him.

Greenlee: He won't. We're solid. How are you doing?

David: Well, "happy" is kind of stretch, but I'm keeping busy.

Greenlee: I'm glad. So, we're good?

David: Oh, we are so good.

Greenlee: Thank you.

Maria: What are you talking about? Bianca killed Michael Cambias in self-defense.

Zach: No, I don't believe that.

Maria: Well, what's not to believe?

Zach: I've spent time with her. And I've looked into her eyes, and I've looked into her heart. And I don't think she's capable of killing somebody else. But these miserable people I think could do it and sleep well afterwards.

Maria: Well, Bianca admitted to it in court.

Zach: Admission of guilt is not admission of fact.

Maria: So, what, you think one of these people -- she's covering for one of these people?

Zach: If she's responsible for Michael's death, then yeah, she was set up.

Maria: By whom?

Zach: That's the point of the game. Part of it, anyway.

Maria: Ok, so you're going to find out who the real killer is, then, here?

Zach: Yes.

[Maria sighs]

Zach: One of them's going to make a mistake. He's going to say something or do something to incriminate himself -- or herself. We're going to find out who the real killer is.

Maria: What I don't understand here, Zach, is why you care so much about Michael Cambias.

Zach: The game's still on.

Aidan: Well, I'm going to hunt Ethan down, I'm going to stay close to him, and I'm going to do it on the sly.

Ryan: Ok, well, the guy's fired up tonight, so be careful.

Edmund: Aidan --

Aidan: Yeah?

Edmund: Let us know if you turn up anything.

Aidan: Will do. Take it easy.

Edmund: So, how's the murder game going?

Ryan: Well, if it was Slater on that intercepted call, I think you're wrong about who the victim was.

Edmund: What are you talking about? I'm in the clear? "You are the victim." You?

Ryan: Fun game, huh?

Edmund: Hmm. Listen, Ryan, why don't we -- why don't we confront Slater, ok? You know, we got enough to blow his cover, put a scare into him.

Ryan: I say we just keep playing the game the way he wants us to, see where it takes us, starting with the gazebo. That's where I'm supposed to get murdered.

Edmund: Playing this a little close, aren't you?

Ryan: I want the guy to come and get me. I want to see him face to face so I can put him away for good.

Zach: That's right, Lavery. Play the game.

Bianca: Have you spoken to Kendall?

Erica: Oh, several times. If she sees me again, she's going to run.

[Bianca sighs]

Erica: But I told her that we love her, that you love her, I love her, and that we want to help her.

Bianca: But it didn't work?

Erica: No. The only kind of help Kendall seems to want from me is help with her plot against Greenlee and Ryan.

Bianca: I'm worried. I -- it seems like there's no way to get through to Kendall. I -- I don't even think it's about Ryan anymore. I think it's about being rejected again.

Erica: It seems that no matter how much she's loved, she just carries it with her, whether it's about me or you or Ryan.

Bianca: She -- she's fought so hard to be loved and accepted, but I don't know how to help her anymore.

Erica: She just doesn't know any other way than to fight. And I can't make her understand that she doesn't need to.

Bianca: Well, Greenlee's right. This is getting scarier.

Erica: Well, Greenlee should just stay out of our family business, because Greenlee damaged Kendall so much that I can't even stand the sight of her.

Bianca: Whoa, Mom, where did that come from?

Erica: I think it's tonight. I think it's tonight. I think it's this night and Zach's game. And, I mean, surely, he must know what he's doing to bring this horrible night up again and -- and all the memories of Michael Cambias and what he did to you. How are you holding up?

Bianca: You know, I -- I didn't want to let on in front of everybody else, but I'm spooked. I don't like this game. It's either just a really sick game or there's something more going on. And that freaks me out even more.

Erica: Oh, honey, I'm so sorry. And you shouldn't even be here.

Bianca: Well, neither should you. I don't like what this is doing to you.

Erica: Well, it's funny. I mean, ever since I've been in therapy, I've just spent so much time dealing with my anger towards my father. I guess I forgot how much rage I really have -- until tonight, until this stupid game. How much rage I have against Michael Cambias. And what he did to all of us -- to Kendall, to you. I swear to you, honey, if Michael Cambias were standing in front of me tonight, I would kill him just to see him die all over again.

Zach: Oh, yes, Erica, I believe you would do it. And speaking of the lovely Kendall, where'd she get off to? Ah, there is she is. Tardy, but present. She look off to you?

Maria: This is really crazy, Zach.

Zach: You know, she was at Michael's apartment the night he died, too -- carrying a gun. Isn't it funny how Erica and her kids can just go from saint to sinner in a split second?

Maria: No, she -- she only said she was guilty to protect Bianca.

Zach: Or -- maybe she did kill Michael. And why not? She took the blame supposedly just to protect the real killer. And then when the truth came out, she was off the hook.

Maria: Oh, come on, you don't believe that.

Zach: Bianca remembered the deed months -- months after it happened. And who was it who helped her regain her memory? Kendall, my number one suspect.

Maria: You know what? Just -- you know what? That's enough of this, because this is insanity! Please, you're doing this -- you're ruining all these people's lives for what? For the death of some subhuman person? Michael Cambias is dead because a young woman had to make a choice. And her choice was to kill or to be raped again! Now, you said yourself Bianca is gold. She's such an amazing person. And who is that man -- somebody like that, to rape her and to violate her and to take her innocence? What kind of person is that? You know, this -- this horror has been gone now for a year, and -- for God's sake, I don't know why you're trying to dig this up again.

Kendall: Got to be around here somewhere.

Ethan: All right, what exactly are we looking for?

Kendall: Uh -- I don't know. I wish I knew. We're -- we're here, we're in the tin shed, but I don't know. I don't -- I don't see anything.

Ethan: Ok, well, the answer's in your purse. You have to read it again.

Kendall: All right. All right. Ok. All right. "My maker does not want me, my buyer has no use for me, my user never sees me."

Ethan: Not wanted, unused, unseen -- that seems kind of sad. All right, maybe we just start -- start by looking and seeing if anything turns up, ok? Or maybe not.

Kendall: A coffin. The answer. The answer -- it's a coffin!

Ethan: "My -- my user never --" aren't you a clever girl?

Kendall: Yes.

Ethan: Except, you know what? There's no coffin around here. It's not exactly the easiest thing to hide -- unless it's buried.

Kendall: No.

Ethan: No, no, I don't see any fresh dirt.

Kendall: No, and it's got to be small. It's got to be a small, tiny coffin hidden somewhere. It's got to be hidden somewhere -- somewhere, but where? I got it. I got it. Aha! I love it. I'm so smart. Look!

Ethan: Ha!

Kendall: Oh, my God.

Ethan: Ok.

Kendall: All right, let's open it. Oh, I thought it was going to be -- oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, God, do you believe this?

Ethan: Since I came to this town, I'm ready to believe pretty much anything.

Kendall: Do you -- do you know what this means?

Ethan: I should duck?

Kendall: No! This means that I'm going to win.

Bianca: Mom, don't -- don't even say that. Michael is dead. Let's just leave him buried.

Erica: Well, it's not easy. But there is some comfort in knowing that he's suffering.

Bianca: Well, Kendall's suffering, too. And she needs our help, and we have to help her. Or else we could lose her, Mom.

Erica: Oh, no. Oh, no, honey, we won't lose her. No matter what we have to do, we won't lose Kendall. We will help her. We'll keep her safe.

Ethan: Your next clue -- "You are the murderer. Go to the gazebo in the garden. Your victim awaits you."

Kendall: Oh -- oh -- oh, my God! You're kidding me!

Edmund: Listen, I've got some leads, all right? Some contacts. Why don't we go up to my room, make some calls, see if we can get some more information to trip this guy up before he makes his move?

Ryan: If Slater wants to play games, I want him to know that I am in all the way.

Edmund: That's exactly what he wants.

Ryan: But can he handle it if I'm the target?

Greenlee: No! Ryan, what are you doing? You can't set yourself up.

[Edmund sighs]

Edmund: You be careful.

Greenlee: Whatever crazy scheme you've got going on, I won't let you do it.

Maria: Just stop playing all these games with me and tell me why you care so much about Michael Cambias. Why are you going to all this trouble and you're going to such extremes to hurt so many people? All for this -- person! I don't -- was Edmund onto something? Did you go to school with Michael Cambias? I mean, we're talking about a man who was a soulless, sadistic pig! He -- he used women, and he abused them, and he -- he -- I mean, he literally lied and cheated and stole and tormented every single person he ever came in contact with, and people here were relieved when he died. Do you hear me? They were relieved, because Michael Cambias was a monster!

Zach: Michael Cambias was my brother.

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

Zach: One of my guests murdered my brother. I will not sleep again until I find out who it was.

Greenlee: Kendall as the killer. Irony is dead.

Kendall: This is between you and me. And I can honestly say that no one deserves this more than you.
