Maddie: Mom, if you're going to fall, fall. Don't pull me down with you.

Maria: Why do you think I brought you? To hold me up.

Maddie: Everybody thinks you're so nice. They are way wrong.

Maria: Well, that'll have to be our little secret -- I am the vile and evil mommy. Ok, put on your shoes, get going.

Maddie: Oh, I don't want to go yet. Can I please skate some more?

Maria: Yeah, 10 minutes. 10 minutes. That's it, though. Time starts now.

Maddie: Thanks.

Maria: Go!

Zach: Whoa! Careful. This could be dangerous.

Anita: Know what was special about that kiss?

Aidan: Yeah, but what were you thinking?

Anita: You just kissed a free woman. My divorce came through today.

Ethan: All the greetings tossed at me, "I still love Ryan" is in a class of its own.

Kendall: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to just blurt it out the second that you walked in the door, but I can't -- it's driving me crazy.

Ethan: So you decided you wanted to spread the insanity?

Kendall: Well, you deserve to know. God, Ethan, I really thought it was over. I thought it was dead and buried, but then -- then today something happened, and suddenly --

Ethan: These old feelings for Ryan, they rose again in your heart?

Kendall: Yeah. Listen, I understand if you want to just go and walk right back out that door right now. I will not try to stop you, I promise. No screaming, no tears, no messy good-byes.

Ryan: Was I wrong to trust you, Jonathan? Do I need to ask you if you drugged my wife?

Greenlee: Did you? Did you want me out of the way so badly you poisoned me?

Jonathan: Couldn't Aidan get the answer for you? You did hire him to investigate me, didn't you, Greenlee?

Greenlee: You answer my question first.

Bianca: I think I was wrong. You're not just a friend to me. I think -- I think I -- I've fallen in love with you. I'm as surprised as you are. I thought that my feelings for you were -- were what they were, that I -- you're my closest friend, but it's gone way beyond that for me now.

Maggie: You must be this close to sainthood. What a picture -- Bianca the martyr bestowing her kiss on Maggie the misguided. Your sacrifice is --

Bianca: I'm not -- I'm not a martyr. I'm not a saint. I don't want to be.

Maggie: Oh, no, don't be modest. Your generosity is inspiring. I mean, to sacrifice yourself and your happiness to protect me from the big, bad Jonathan.

Jonathan: I hope Aidan's not too pricey. I'd hate for you to have wasted a lot of money. No, Greenlee, I didn't slip you any drugs of any kind at any time, ok? Pass that on to your detective pal.

Ryan: Greenlee didn't hire Aidan. She took my word on you. Am I right?

Greenlee: I thought we were done with this. I walk in and you and Jonathan are --

Ryan: Look, we're kind of in the middle of something.

Greenlee: I can see that, but what?

Ryan: I kind of need to be alone with my brother right now, ok?

Greenlee: Whatever you need from me you've got.

Ryan: Ok. I love you.

Greenlee: Right back at you, always.

Ryan: All right.

Jonathan: So now what, hmm? Do you want to frisk me? You want to frisk me for antipsychotics?

Ryan: You're the one who brought it up.

Jonathan: To get rid of it. Is it gone?

Ryan: Yes. I believe you didn't drug my wife. But you did hit Maggie.

Jonathan: Once. Once. It will never happen again.

Ryan: You need help, Jonathan, and you need it right now.

Kendall: Why are you still here?

Ethan: How's Miranda doing? Listen, I picked this up for her. It says a 5-year-old can put it together, so I figured that between the two of us, we should be able to figure it out.

Kendall: Wait, wait, I just tell you that I'm still in love with another man, a man that you hate, and you're talking about baby gadgets? What, what, is this some British stiff-upper-lip routine?

Ethan: Come here. Good, now I feel a little bit stronger. Ok, I have no idea what kind of 5-year-old is supposed to put this together, but --

Kendall: Ethan?

Ethan: Yeah?

Kendall: I've totally screwed us up, haven't I?

Ethan: Did you want to screw us up?

Zach: Maddie's good. She's graceful.

Maria: Yeah. She loves to skate. Obviously, or I wouldn't be sitting out here freezing to death in the dark.

Zach: Frostbite looks good on you, though. You know, it puts some color in your cheeks.

Maria: Thank you. I don't think it's the cold, though. I think that it's I finally got my life back on track.

Zach: Your life with Edmund?

Maria: Mm-hmm. We're both back under the same roof again, which is good, and we're working really hard on our relationship, trying to get back what we had.

Zach: Before I showed up?

Maria: You know, Edmund is a big skier, and that he can still do, so I was thinking about planning a surprise Valentine's Day vacation, a big ski trip for us, and go out west and have a big family --

Zach: Can I interrupt you for one second? I'm sorry. Why are you working so hard to convince me that you're happy?

Maddie: Who are you?

Zach: I'm Zach Slater. It's nice to meet you. You did a great job out there.

Maddie: Let's get home and hang out with Dad.

Maria: Ok. Yeah, absolutely. Wait till he hears about how great you were doing that spin.

Maddie: Yeah. Mom, hurry.

Maria: I'm with you, I'm with you.

Edmund: Come on, Derek, stop wasting time and just arrest Zach Slater.

Derek: On what grounds?

Edmund: Bobby Warner swore that Zach had him beaten up and had Ryan shot.

Derek: Hard evidence.

Edmund: Bobby's an eyewitness.

Derek: A missing eyewitness. Look, Edmund, I told you, without Bobby here in the flesh, we've got nothing.

Edmund: Ok, I have Ryan, I have Maria, I have Aidan all to back me up.

Derek: Not enough, not even close. Look, I called off the search.

Edmund: Zach could've had Bobby killed.

Derek: Look, nobody removed Bobby from the hospital, ok? He walked out and he hailed a cab. Face it, Edmund, Bobby dumped on Slater for revenge and then just left. Let it go, man, ok? Just let it go.

Edmund: I am never going to let it go. I'm never going to let Slater get away with this.

Anita: Gosh, from a bad case of jelly knees to feeling like celebrating. I've just been all over the map.

Aidan: Well, as long as that map brings you to me, I'm a very happy boy. So you want to celebrate? What do you have in mind?

Anita: Well, remember when we talked about going outside the comfort zone?

Aidan: Yeah?

Anita: Planning an exciting adventure?

Aidan: On New Year's Eve, yeah.

Anita: What do you say about taking a helicopter ride to the top of a mountain, jumping out, and skiing down?

Greenlee: Have a nice trip. Aidan, you screwed up bigtime.

Aidan: Greenlee, can you acknowledge Anita, please?

Greenlee: Fine, fine. Watch out for boulders and trees. Look, Aidan, this is big, like emergency, flame-burst, orange-alert big.

Aidan: Why, what, did Jonathan come after you?

Greenlee: He's certainly geared up for it.

Anita: Oh, God, what has Jonathan done now?

Aidan: What do you know about Jonathan? Anita, tell me. Come on, it's important.

Anita: Bianca and I think that he hit Maggie.

Aidan: Well, if he did, you know she's not the first.

Maggie: Look, you stop this, ok? It's lame and it's not going to work.

Bianca: I mean, everything has been -- has been so confusing, and I guess that that made it impossible for me to see how I feel for you.

Maggie: Well, when did all of these feelings of love bubble to the surface for you?

Bianca: I don't know. I can't pinpoint it exactly.

Maggie: Because you're trying to throw me off.

Bianca: No, that's not it at all.

Maggie: You were trying to bring up old memories to make me confused. It's not going to work. I know who I love, and I've known for a long time now. It's Jonathan. I belong with him.

Jonathan: I wouldn't hurt Maggie, not in my right mind. That night, I'd -- I'd been drinking too much. I was freaked out, worried about the future. I guess it was right after you signed away everything to Bianca's baby.

Ryan: Cambias is no reason to do what you did, Jonathan.

Jonathan: Ryan, that was my dream for us. It was everything, man. We were finally doing it. And then you drove us off a cliff. I was wrecked! Then Maggie comes home and she started criticizing me and just second-guessing me and was, like, yammering at me. It was just -- my brain went on overload. It was like some high-pitched, reverberating scream in my ear. And I told her, too. I told her, and if she just would've shut up a couple of seconds earlier, it would've been ok!

Ryan: Stop! Don't do that now. Don't make it Maggie�s fault. That's just like Dad, like it wasn't his fault he used to smack us around, it was ours.

Jonathan: To hell with you, Ryan!

Ryan: Listen, I'm not going to let you duck out of this. Do you understand? I won't let you.

Jonathan: I am not like Dad. Don't you ever compare me to that son of a bitch!

Ryan: You sure as hell won't be because I am going to stop you any way that I can!

Jonathan: I've been feeling low and worthless enough. Don't compare me to the guy who --

Ryan: Who what?

Jonathan: Look, I know hitting Maggie wasn't justified. It's unforgivable. I'd cut off my hand before I did it again. She knows that. She still loves me, Ry, and she forgave me. Can you believe it?

Ryan: What did Dad do to you?

Jonathan: Nothing. Dad didn't do anything to me. I'm fine, man. It's over.

Ryan: After I left?

Jonathan: He saw the light, came to Jesus, and became a regular Mister Rogers, Ryan! What do you think happened?

Ryan: I think he messed you up real bad. And that is how you got to where you are right now.

Bianca: You belong with someone who respects you. Jonathan treats you --

Maggie: Well, you respect me, right? You admire me?

Bianca: Yes. You know I do.

Maggie: But it was Lena that you wanted. It was Lena that you were mad for. And then she gave you an ultimatum.

Bianca: No, it's not that simple.

Maggie: And then she broke it off with you, and then it was, "Wowie, zowzie, bring it on, Maggie." Am I some sort of consolation prize to you?

Bianca: No, of course not.

Maggie: Damn right not!

Bianca: But there's been a connection with us. I know you felt it, too, and I wrote it off as friendship, you wrote it off as a crush. It's gone a whole lot deeper than that for me. And maybe what we have has been the real thing the whole time and we just couldn't --

Maggie: No! Don't even come near me.

Ryan: Whatever you need, I'll find it. Ok, we can start with the psychiatrist --

Jonathan: Shrinks? I'm not going to a head doctor. Damn, Ryan. Man, I made one mistake and you're ready to put me in a straitjacket in a padded room?

Ryan: Braden committed rape when he was here. Yeah. That's true. I wasn't going to tell you. I didn't know how it would help. But now, I mean, maybe if I had helped him earlier --

Jonathan: So, what, what, you think I'm going to commit rape or murder?

Ryan: I tried to help him myself, do you understand, but I wasn't equipped. I needed to get a professional.

Jonathan: If you have guilt about Braden, deal with him with that, Ryan! Don't put it off on me!

Ryan: Nothing you do can push me away. Do you understand that? I will stick by you no matter what!

Jonathan: I've heard that before, almost those exact same words in Des Moines -- right before you tore out and left me to be Dad's -- left me to be Dad's favorite punching bag.

Ryan: You will never know how much I regret that.

Jonathan: You want to know what I regret? That I bought every word you said. You left me with the enemy, and I will never make that same mistake twice.

Maggie: You threw me off balance with that kiss, but you're not going to do it again. Yeah, I had a crush on you, but maybe it had something to do with Frankie.

Bianca: This isn't about Frankie.

Maggie: Are you kidding me? You were hot for her. And then I came along with the same body and the same face, and I never felt about a woman like I felt about you before, ever, so I kidded myself that it was more than it was, and you -- you could only see Lena. That's all that you saw. You never loved me. And you don't love me now.

Bianca: But even then, we had a connection. I know that you felt what I'm feeling now. When you walked in and found me in bed with Babe at the casino, you thought that I had chosen her over you. And before I had a chance to explain, you ran off into Jonathan's arms. So, what, was he a rebound thing?

Maggie: I was always attracted to Jonathan. I've always been attracted to men! And I'm in love with Jonathan now. Is your ego so big that you just can't get that?

Bianca: You told me that you were confused about your feelings for me.

Maggie: Yeah. No surprise there.

Bianca: So was Jonathan an attempt to make those feelings go away?

Maggie: Oh, my God, this isn't all about you, Bianca.

Bianca: Is it about you? Is it about what you feel and what you want? Because whatever that is is fine just as long as it comes from your heart. Are you -- are you scared of what it would mean if the two of us were together?

Greenlee: So if this woman Lorraine Rossiter pressed assault charges, why isn't Jonathan in a cell?

Aidan: Because the judge gave him probation on the promise that he would go to anger-management classes.

Greenlee: What's this judge's name? I'd like to have a little sit-down with this guy.

Anita: We have to get Maggie away from him.

Greenlee: And I have a way. That other matter that we discussed, Aidan?

Anita: You know, I really should get going.

Greenlee: Gee, that's too bad. Bye.

Aidan: Our adventure discussion to be continued?

Anita: Definitely.

Greenlee: You were made tonight, oh-so-not-covert operator -- unmasked, uncovered, un-everything.

Aidan: It was a mistake.

Greenlee: Jonathan knows that you were hired to check him out.

Aidan: It's not the end of the world, Greenlee.

Greenlee: It's close enough. Without surprise on our side, Jonathan can cover his tracks and weasel out.

Aidan: Well, at least we uncovered his arrest record.

Greenlee: It doesn't link him to drugging me, and I need proof to convince Ryan, unarguable proof that Jonathan slipped me those meds.

Aidan: And if it exists, we will get it.

Greenlee: Ryan has blind faith in Jonathan. After Braden, he feels like he has to stick by little brother. You know about Braden, right?

Aidan: Yeah, I do, the oldest Lavery.

Greenlee: Braden is lost to Ryan, and if he loses Jonathan, too --

Aidan: Well, if Jonathan is cut from the same cloth as Braden, well, then good riddance to him.

Greenlee: No, I don't think Ryan could handle that. It would break his heart. Maybe we should end the investigation right here.

Jonathan: You're not a Lavery. Why do you care about me?

Ryan: Because you're my brother and I love you.

Jonathan: Half brother. You're the good half. I'm the bad half.

Ryan: Knock it off, Jonathan.

Jonathan: See, Braden and I, we take after Dad. But you -- I mean, you're Chris Stamp's boy, right? You escaped being a rotten, filthy rapist abuser. You don't have any of Patrick Lavery's DNA poisoning you. You, you, Ryan, you come from superior stock.

Ryan: Stop! Do you -- do you hear yourself? You're justifying. You're shifting the blame. You are responsible for your own actions!

Jonathan: Whatever you say, Ryan. You're smarter than I am, man. You've made a study of our unfortunate family, so --

Ryan: You lost control, man. You lost control once. It could happen again.

Jonathan: I have a plane to catch.

Ryan: You're not going anywhere. You understand? You're not going to Vegas, you're not going to marry Maggie, not until you've dealt with this.

Jonathan: Why, huh? Because I'm dangerous? Angry, huh? A naturally violent person? I am just not, Ryan! And you know what? Most importantly, you can't tell me what to do!

Ryan: I will stop you physically if I have to! Do you understand that? Look, man, I ran out on you once when you needed me most, but you need me again now. And this time I am not going anywhere. I will not let you down. But I'm not going to let up on you, either. You hear me? If it takes my whole life to make sure that you get through this, then that's what's going to happen, and you can't push me away. Nothing you do will make me walk away from this! Do you understand that? Whatever I have to do to make sure you don't get descended into that same hell that your father and our brother went into, ok? Do you understand me? Even if it takes the last breath of my body. Do you have that strength?

Jonathan: I'm sorry, Ryan. I'm sorry, man. I'm sorry. I'll do whatever you want, ok? Just don't leave me. Please don't leave me.

Ryan: Just you and me, man. It's just you -- it's just you and me together. Just you and me.

Kendall: No, I don't want to screw anything up.

Ethan: Good. Ok, well, listen, why don't we try and assemble this into a toddler, didjeridoo jungle gym thing -- that, ok?

Kendall: Ok, just stop. Will you stop? You don't have to pretend everything is all right.

Ethan: Listen, who's pretending? Ok, you said this realization came to you today, right?

Kendall: Yeah, that's right.

Ethan: Ok. Was that when Ryan told you he'd left his wife and was running off to the Caribbean and would you come with him, so he'd get a quick marriage to you and a quick divorce from Greenlee?

Kendall: No, no. Ryan and Greenlee are closer than ever. They're planning to have a family.

Ethan: Well, honestly, if this thing can't get itself together, I'm going to stick it back in the box, wrap it up, put it in the closet, and they can have it for their firstborn. Ok?

Kendall: I don't understand you at all.

Ethan: You just need to get to know me a little bit better.

Maggie: Ok, look, wherever this is coming from, you have to accept that I'm not gay. I'm not a lesbian. And it's nothing personal. I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but I know that I'm straight.

Bianca: Ok. Ok, I'm not trying to convert you. If you say that you're straight, I'm going to take you at face value.

Maggie: I'm not just saying it.

Bianca: Ok. Ok, that's cool with me. Really, I mean it. But you're a wonderful person. You're generous and smart and wild and funny, and you deserve somebody who sees that and nurtures it.

Maggie: And I do. I have that. I have it from Jonathan. He's a great guy.

Bianca: Great guys don't deal out punishment. Abusers come in all shapes and sizes and sexual orientations. It's not a gay/straight thing.

Maggie: Do you think I don't get that?

Bianca: Ok. Just know that you're a remarkable woman, and so you deserve a remarkable man who's going to value every single part of you. Somebody like Ryan or Uncle Jack or Aidan, but not Jonathan. Not at all. Never. It's better to be alone and safe than together and afraid.

Aidan: No. Besides, I'm working for Kendall, too.

Greenlee: Kendall bailed. She doesn't get a vote.

Aidan: All right. Well, then it's your call. What do you want?

Greenlee: To live happily ever after with Ryan.

Aidan: While his brother slips more antipsychotics into your Chardonnay?

Greenlee: We don't know that for sure. Maybe it's better if we don't find out.

Aidan: Greenlee, you almost died. You have to protect yourself. Ryan would want the same thing.

Greenlee: It would break Ryan's heart if he found out that his little brother was a monster. I told Ryan that I'd take his word that Jonathan didn't do it, and maybe I should honor my word to him.

Aidan: And what if Jonathan did do it?

Greenlee: Ryan and I have managed to stick together against some really big odds because we tell each other the truth. We don't keep secrets, we share everything, and now I'm sneaking around behind his back. What if I wind up tearing us apart?

Maggie: I'm so happy that you're back. I was so worried. Ok, look, look, we missed our flight, and I'm going to call right now, and we are going to get a new flight for tomorrow, ok?

Jonathan: Maggie, no. We can't get married tomorrow. Or the next day or the next.

Maggie: You don't want to marry me?

Jonathan: Oh, God, no. Of course I do. Baby, I need help. I've got to get some counseling. I've got to go to therapy.

Maggie: Ok. All right, well, then you can look into that after we get married, because I love you. It's ok.

Jonathan: I love you, too. I love you more than ever. That's why we have to wait.

Maggie: For how long?

Jonathan: I guess that depends on how fast I can work through things.

Maggie: No. What is that for?

Jonathan: I can't stay here with you while I'm doing this.

Maggie: Where are you going to go?

Ryan: I -- I reserved him a room at the Valley Inn.

Jonathan: It's better this way.

Maggie: No, no, no! I love you and I trust you, and you're staying here with me!

Anita: Uh-oh, they must be gone.

Zach: Oh, Maria and Maddie? Yeah, they left a while ago. Where are your skates? They were skating. I thought you came to join them.

Anita: Why'd you do it?

Zach: Why'd I do what?

Anita: Bobby. Why?

Zach: Because he's not the man I thought he was, so I fired him.

Anita: Well, he's gone now, but I guess you already knew that.

Zach: I'm sorry.

Anita: I hope he's where no one can find him and beat him up again.

Zach: Are you accusing me of something?

Anita: From now on, stay away from me and my family.

Edmund: The cops are useless. Yeah, escalate the search, bring in more men, whatever you need. Bobby Warner's going to go to that Cayman account like a shark to blood, ok? Definitely, Brian, and make it fast.

Maddie: Dad, you missed it.

Edmund: Hey!

Maddie: I was the best thing on the ice.

Edmund: I bet.

Maria: She was great. That sounded important.

Edmund: Yeah, just tweaking a story, some research.

Maddie: I nailed the spin. I was awesome.

Edmund: Oh, you did?

Maria: Yes, she did.

Edmund: I bet you were. Yay! How about a little hot chocolate to celebrate? What do you say?

Maddie: For little kids?

Edmund: For little kids? How about for this big kid?

Maddie: On it.

Edmund: Ok.

Maria: She really is getting so good, seriously. I'm thinking watch out, Olympics.

Edmund: Hmm.

Maria: Edmund?

Edmund: Hmm? I'm sorry. Ahem. I was just thinking about Bobby. Has Anita heard from him?

Maria: No. Why would she? I mean, they're divorced now.

Edmund: Yeah, but she should be concerned. I mean, Bobby was so terrified of Slater, he just split. You know, I would think that maybe she would want us to offer some protection from Slater.

Maria: Actually, I'm glad that he's gone, because she loved him and trusted him and, you know --

Edmund: And he messed up. It happens.

Maria: Hey, let's forget about Bobby for, like, a second and start thinking about a ski vacation.

Edmund: I'm sorry, not right now. I got to wrap up this story that I'm working on.

Maria: It doesn't haven't to be some big old expedition. I was just thinking I can make a few phone calls, and we could have some seats on a flight to Vermont, a little ski chalet, a special ski instructor, the whole thing.

Edmund: Maria, didn't you hear what I just said?

Maria: Yeah, I did. I heard you say you wanted to tweak a story over going with your wife and family on a vacation. I thought we were trying to work on this, Edmund. What's more important to you, us or the story?

Kendall: Are you really ok with this?

Ethan: Listen, what I'm ok with is you. So if you want to talk about this, we can pick through it, we can analyze it. I'll get some Chinese food. We can sit here, we can go through it all night. But don't do this for my benefit. I don't need it.

Kendall: But most men would've headed for the hills.

Ethan: Well, luckily for you, I'm not most men.

Kendall: No, you're not.

Ethan: But, you know, you're not most women, either. Come here.

Kendall: You make me feel like anything is possible.

Ethan: Why don't you remind me of that when I go up for my trial?

Kendall: I will.

Ethan: And in about an hour when I punt this thing out the window. I own this.

Kendall: Right, but you'll return and get your money back and --

Ethan: No, no.

Kendall: Things will be fine.

Ethan: I mean I own the company. It's a Cambias subsidiary.

Kendall: You lie.

Ethan: Yeah, look at that -- Wonky Wiblets. Who's going to forget a name like that? You can laugh, young lady --

Kendall: Wonky Wiblets?

Ethan: But when I go in tomorrow to do business stuff, I'm going to roll some heads for that, you wait and see.

Kendall: Oh, sure.

Ethan: Yeah, that's what I do.

Kendall: Oh. Well -- what are you looking at?

Ethan: You know, I think this is my favorite place. But this right here is pretty wonderful, too.

Kendall: Ok -- um -- we can't do that because we won't get to the assembling. We have to assemble.

Ethan: Yeah, mm-hmm. You know, the closer that I got to you, the more I got to know you, the more I wanted you.

Maggie: There is no reason why you can't live here and go to therapy.

Jonathan: I'd kill myself if I hurt you again.

Maggie: That's why you don't have to go!

Jonathan: I have to get some things together.

Ryan: Maggie, I wish that I could guarantee you a quick fix, but obviously this is a very --

Maggie: This is our life and we were dealing with it just fine!

Bianca: Ryan cares about you and Jonathan.

Ryan: I just know what he went through with our dad, and I have to do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen again, all right? And the fact that Jonathan has agreed to get help, this is a huge, positive step. Really need your support on this.

Jonathan: I thought you were butting in and trying to start trouble. I was wrong. Ryan helped me see that we both want the same thing. We both want Maggie to be happy.

Bianca: That's exactly what I want.

Jonathan: Listen, when I'm better, when I'm the man I should be for you, I'll be back. Ok?

Maggie: Are you happy? Because you got what you wanted!

Greenlee: Rock, hard place. Am I having fun? No.

Aidan: It's your call.

Greenlee: Do I pretend everything's cool, that we're one big, happy family? Let Ryan believe in his brother and live in fear for the rest of my life, wondering what Jonathan slipped into my eggnog, ho, ho, horrible picture? Or do I let you keep digging and take the chance that my happy marriage will blow itself to bits over this? Hmm.

Aidan: And your choice is?

Greenlee: The truth. Whichever way it goes, Jonathan or mystery perp, find out and get me proof. If it's Jonathan, Ryan and I will just have to deal with it, somehow or other.

Anita: Maria is finally on the mend. She and Edmund are rebuilding their marriage. They love each other. They're going to be fine.

Zach: No, I think Maria loves Edmund, sure. I don't know about him.

Anita: You know, all this concern. You're still trying to destroy her marriage.

Zach: Edmund's got a grudge against me.

Anita: Edmund loves Maria. And he's devoted to her in ways that you could never begin to understand.

Zach: Hope you're right.

Maria: How long do you want to put this off?

Edmund: I don't. Come here. Come here. Babe, I don't want to put this off at all, ok? This work is important to both of us.

Maria: Ok, well, it doesn't feel like this is about work, though. It feels like you're trying to push me away.

Edmund: I'm trying to get us closer. This is not going to happen overnight, though. It's going to take time.

Maria: I know it will.

Edmund: But it will happen. Please, just trust me and hang in there.

Maria: I'm going to go take my cocoa upstairs.

Kendall: Ethan, you are amazing. Unbelievable!

Ethan: Ahem. I think you can do a little better than that.

Kendall: All right. You are the best. You are in a class all your own. You are the most talented man on the face of this earth.

Ethan: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you very much.

Kendall: Yes.

Ethan: Thank you.

Kendall: And I know that there is nothing that we can't do together.

Ethan: You sound very sure of yourself.

Kendall: Well, you know, you, my friend, are going to be acquitted. But I do have a sentence for you.

Ethan: Oh, really?

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Ethan: Well, I will look forward to serving it.

Greenlee: Ryan! I'm home! Where are you? No notes, no messages. Honey. What happened? Where have you been?

Ryan: I love you.

Greenlee: I love you, too.

Ryan: And I would be lost without you.

Greenlee: Well, then you'll never be lost.

Bianca: I hate seeing you upset.

Maggie: No, you hate that I care for Jonathan. You hate that I love him.

Bianca: This is not a bad thing. Ryan is going to make sure that Jonathan gets the best help.
