Derek: What's with you, Slater? You want to clam up about Edmund Grey's death, about Lavery's attempted murder? That's your choice. But if you don't make a statement now, you are going to drown under all these charges. Get ready to trade in your high-rolling casino life for 10 to 20 in a cage -- if you're lucky. You want my advice? Start talking.

Zach: You've got an eyewitness -- my son.

Derek: Oh, ok, so that's how you want to roll, huh? All right.

Zach: Just what do you think? It's going to be even better than watching me burn, isn't it?

Brooke: Maria, can I take you home?

Maria: No, I -- I have to find out if it's true, if Edmund could walk.

David: What are you doing?

Tad: What does it look like? I'm helping you pack.

David: If you don't want to eat that suitcase, you better knock it off.

Tad: Not a chance. I want you out of Pine Valley for good.

David: Oh, what is this? You being upset because Krystal's doing time? Well, throw your tantrum elsewhere. And while you're at it, blame yourself, because you're the moron that helped them get that ridiculous plea bargain.

Tad: There wouldn't be a plea bargain if you'd done the right thing months ago. But this isn't about Krystal, and it's not about Babe. It's not about either of my sons. It's about Zach Slater.

David: I don't have anything to do with Zach Slater.

Tad: The hell you don't! If it weren't for you, Maria never would have met him. If it weren't for you, Edmund would still be alive.

Kendall: Hey.

Greenlee: Hey .

Kendall: Hmm. What a day.

Greenlee: Yeah.

Kendall: This might help, unless you're pretending.

Greenlee: Thanks.

Kendall: Hello?

Greenlee: What?

Kendall: What is with you? Yes, as horrible as it is that Edmund died, you're sitting on the upside. If Maria is right, Zach poisoned you. So your mystery's solved, Jonathan's in the clear, and you and Ryan can go back on your little marriage go-round.

Greenlee: What if Maria's wrong?

Ethan: I promised you a long, slow punishment.

Zach: And you're delivering. Good as your word.

Ethan: Must be a Ramsey trait. And this is just the curtain raiser, Zach.

Ryan: Did you do it? Did you kill Edmund?

Zach: Ethan?

Ryan: Did you actually see him do it, or are you just throwing charges around and seeing what sticks?

Ethan: I saw Zach kill Edmund at the Wildwind stables. He cracked the back of his skull with a shovel.

Ryan: And you'll swear to that?

Ethan: On the Cambias fortune.

Ryan: That's a hell of a risk.

Ethan: No, it's not. I'm telling the truth, Ryan.

Ryan: So, what happened?

Ethan: I don't know. I think you should ask Zach about that, but he seems to be a little quiet at the moment.

Ryan: Well, maybe I can change his mind. Excuse us.

Ethan: By all means.

Derek: Come on, give me something, boys.

Ryan: Two children lost their father, and their mother is a widow, and you're sitting there like you're waiting to get a parking ticket fixed. Edmund was a good man. Ok, he loved his friends, he loved his family, and guess what -- we loved him back. Not something that you can understand.

Zach: I understand a lot more than you think.

Ryan: So why did you do it, Slater? Why would you slam the life out of a man that is so much better than you could ever possibly be? Why? Go ahead, tell me, I'm listening. I mean, maybe you didn't know. The truth actually sets you free. So tell me. Was this just something that you premeditated? Is this something happened spontaneously? I mean, what were you even doing in Wildwind?

Maria: Zach told me that Edmund could walk.

Brooke: What? No. You think Edmund was lying to you about his paralysis?

Maria: I don't know. Zach said that he was on his feet and that he had proof. Of course now he doesn't have any --

Brooke: Maria --

Maria: Anything to show.

Brooke: Listen. Now is not the time. You need to grieve and you need to say goodbye to Edmund.

Maria: But I feel like I can't. I can't with all this sludge in my head and all these lies and all these unanswered questions. I can't even grieve my husband.

Brooke: I understand that you want answers to your questions, but you have to -- you have to forget Zach, you have to forget what he said, because it doesn't mean anything and it doesn't matter, not compared to what you had with Edmund. And you have to take time for yourself and your children, because -- because they're going to need you.

Maria: Zach also said that Edmund didn't get back together with me because he loved me, he only wanted me so that Zach couldn't have me.

Brooke: What do you believe?

Maria: I don't know. I don't know, because we were getting our life back together and we were closer than we'd been in a long time. And so I -- I can't believe that was a con.

Brooke: Don't make yourself crazy trying to figure out why people do what they do, all right? Just leave it go. Maria, let me take you home.

Maria: I can't. I feel like I'm the only one who can make this right, Edmund deserves more than this, and I'm the only one who can fix it now.

Manny: Maria, I just heard. I'm sorry. Edmund was a good man.

Maria: Thank you. Manny, do you know if Edmund was farther along in his physical progress?

Brooke: Maria --

Maria: No. Could he walk?

Manny: No. Impossible. Why would you think that he could?

Maria: I just know he was getting some sensation back in his legs, and he was starting to feel tingling again, so I don't know -- I mean, could he possibly walk and he was keeping it a surprise or a secret or something?

Manny: Not a chance, ok? I mean, he had tingling and some sensitivity, but whatever progress was made, it was transient. Good days and bad days.

Maria: You're sure?

Manny: When Edmund got done throwing bedpans at me, he worked harder than any patient I ever worked with. And if he could have walked, I'd have known about it.

Maria: Ok. Thanks.

Manny: Ok. I'm sorry.

Maria: All right.

Brooke: All right? You got the answer you wanted. Come on, let's -- let's go, ok?

Maria: I am not going to let Zach spit on my husband's grave.

Tad: I swear, you should have your own early warning system. Give innocent people a chance to get out of harm's way.

David: That's enough.

Tad: You think so? How many innocent lives have you destroyed? By my count, you've already drugged or slept your way through half of this town. How many marriages have you wrecked, David, huh? Gillian's, Dixie's, not to mention your own? Yeah, let's not forget about Anna. The first single woman you managed to sink your fangs in and suck the life out of couldn't run fast enough.

David: Don't push it, martin.

Tad: Now Krystal's doing 10 years, and what about Babe? Your daughter? Thanks to your love and guidance, she's lost her son to J.R. and her mother to the state pen. And the hits just keep coming when you're around, David. Now Edmund is never going to get the chance to get back all those years that you stole from him, when you erased his wife's life and sent her to the desert. And now we got Zach Slater to thank you for, him and his particular kind of damage. Ain't life grand when you're at the podium?

David: Why don't you just shut the hell up?

Tad: I can't say I'm surprised, either, what, with your resume and all. Hell, you can't practice medicine anymore. Why don't you try your hand at death and destruction? Well, there's not much of this town left, but you know what? I hear they're looking for a few good men overseas. Why don't you give it a whirl, huh?

David: You want to hear something, Tad? You want to hear something? You are nothing but a clown, a pathetic windbag running on empty because as much as he tries to play hero and save the day, all you ever end up doing is sitting back and watching. So face it, Tad. You're not king of the world. You're not even king of that freak show you call a family.

Kendall: Ok, yes, it's been a horrible day, but there's one tiny ray of light -- Maria busted Zach. She busted Zach, he poisoned you, so why can't you just hold on to that? Now you and Ryan -- you can go back to your happy little marriage and you don't have to worry about Jonathan lacing your beverage of choice.

Greenlee: I wish I could believe that.

Kendall: Listen, if anyone else fingered Zach, I might wonder, but Maria does not lie. And Ethan said he saw Zach kill Edmund.

Greenlee: It's just I have a weird vibe.

Kendall: Well, then maybe you need a tune-up. Or you do you just like being unhappy and negative? I don't get you. Greenlee, wake up. The glass is half full.

Greenlee: There's still plenty seriously wrong with Jonathan.

Kendall: Yes, Jonathan is still a woman-hitting freak, but at least he's not a demented poisoning freak.

Greenlee: No, it's still there, the hate. I was alone with him. I saw the look in his eyes. Maybe he didn't drug me, but he wishes he did.

Kendall: Yes, but he didn't, and he won't, ok? So you can stop worrying about this. And now with Maggie safely in Paris, Jonathan doesn't have any punching bags to hit on, so it's one less thing to worry about.

Greenlee: Until the next time he gets lucky.

Jonathan: Which National League first baseman holds the record for the most consecutive errorless games? Go.

Tommy: Lifetime or season?

Jonathan: You're stalling. Season.

Simone: That would be a no-brainer. Steve Garvey, 159 games. So I'll be taking that and you can send me over a white Russian.

Tommy: It's on the house.

Simone: Oh, thank you.

Jonathan: You know what? I'll take that.

David: Just get out of my house.

Tad: You don't understand. Nobody wants you around. So why don't you do yourself a favor and get lost before the lynch mob shows up?

David: And what are you supposed to be, the mob of one? Well, get used to it. I have a daughter here who loves me and a grandson who needs me. I'm not about to bail out on them.

Tad: Well, that's too bad, because you'd be doing your daughter a favor.

David: Yeah, right, and leave her here to go toe to toe with the two sons you had a hand in raising? I don't think so. Look, just get the hell out of my house. I've got some unpacking to do.

Tad: If you stay, you're making a big mistake.

David: Why don't you concentrate on your own family? Don't you have an ex-wife who just lost a man that she kind of almost sort of married? I'm sure she could use a hanky or a shoulder about now.

Tad: It's amazing. I keep waiting, because someday the earth is going to open up and swallow you whole.

David: You'd better grow up, tad. Divine justice is nothing but a fairy tale. Edmund dies, I survive. The good guys always get shafted. And my kind -- we multiply like bunnies.

Tad: Cancer cells is more like it.

David: Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Kendall: Why do you do this? Something is obviously bugging you, and instead of just coming out with it, you sigh and you groan and you grunt.

Greenlee: I don't grunt.

Kendall: All right. If it's not Jonathan, then what is it?

Greenlee: I have deadlines.

Kendall: All right, you grunt and you're mine. Maybe this'll help.

Greenlee: What -- what are you doing? What are you doing?

Kendall: No, but this is the only way to get your damn attention here. I don't have time to wait for another one of your meltdowns, ok? So just please tell me, what is it?

Greenlee: It's Ryan. Even if I want to believe Maria, cross Jonathan off the psycho list, it's what Ryan believes that's a problem.

Kendall: Hello? Ryan defends Jonathan to anyone who will listen, whether they want to hear it or not. Ryan should be just as relieved as you are.

Greenlee: And no wonder you and Ryan didn't stick. You don't get him. Of course Ryan defends Jonathan, to the top of his lungs. That's what he does. He protects his family no matter what.

Kendall: But if Maria clears Jonathan, then what more does Ryan want?

Greenlee: Maybe a normal, sane little brother. I mean, no matter what Ryan says, deep down he's afraid his brother really is nuts. It's why he moved into the Valley Inn with him. He keeps tabs on him 24/7. He goes to therapy with him. He has to call him every 10 minutes when he's away from him. I mean, I'm lucky I got one night in a motel room.

Kendall: All right, that's too much information for me, thank you.

Greenlee: Ryan won't cop to it, even to himself, that he's terrified that Jonathan should be buckled into a straitjacket and hauled off to Oak Javen.

Kendall: Well, we just take a vote and get on with it?

Greenlee: Remember when Ryan found out that we'd hired Aidan? Same thing. He shuts down, he gets angry, anything to avoid actually saying that Jonathan is a wack job. Unless the truth smacks Ryan between the eyes, I don't know that there's anything I can do to make it better for him.

Kendall: You know what? I know exactly how to get the kind of truth even Ryan will have to listen to. Come on.

Greenlee: What are we doing?

Kendall: We're going. Carpe veritas. That's Latin for we're going to nail that S.O.B. Come on.

Jonathan: Hi. May I join you?

Simone: Uh --

Jonathan: Well, you didn't run screaming. I had to ask. These days, I'm thrilled anybody's willing to talk to me.

Simone: You've had a rough time.

Jonathan: Is that a yes?

Simone: Oh, please, you can sit if you'd like.

Jonathan: It's a start. How's that drink?

Simone: It's good. But where's yours? Can I get you one?

Jonathan: Hey, Tommy? Hey, man, can I have another soda, please? Thank you. So, how about those Red Sox?

Simone: Oh, Yankees are going to get them, yeah.

Zach: Man, you're a mystery to me. You know, I've tried real hard to figure you out, but I can't do it. And I don't even think you can figure yourself out, can you?

Ryan: No, I'm actually not a mystery, Zach. What you see is what you get.

Zach: Yeah? So why are you here? Why aren't you out celebrating instead of harassing me?

Ryan: My friend was murdered and you want me to go out and celebrate?

Zach: I need your help with something. They're about to arrest the man who killed your friend, shot at you, poisoned your wife, and on top of everything else, it's the man you hate. So why can't you be happy? Go and high-five my son.

Ryan: Why would you do it, man? Why would you grab a shovel and why would you attack a man who can't defend himself?

Zach: You got a whole committee in your head, don't you? And they're all talking at the same time. Pure chaos in there, right? Scary. But you know what I think? I think the scariest time of all is when the voices stop, when you hear the whispers of your worst suspicion, and that's what keeps you up at night.

Ryan: You plan on making a point anytime soon, Zach?

Derek: I sure hope so.

Zach: If I'm guilty, all that ugliness goes right back into a box and you can finally go back to sleep, make love to your wife, and be Ryan Lavery, friend to all.

Ryan: And I can see a murderer put in jail.

Zach: May I remind you once again that I'm so much more than that. I am the maniac who hired a hit man who had you shot, who poisoned your wife, who tried to blame Kendall. If I'm gone, your world's going to be bright and shiny again. Am I right?

Ryan: I don't know, Zach. You tell me.

Zach: You never learned to bluff, did you? It's all over your face. You're dying to see my cards. The problem is you didn't ante up, and I know why. Because you don't like the cards you're holding. Nothing but face cards. And they're all faces you know. Aren't they?

Ryan: You have no idea what I'm thinking.

Zach: Well, maybe I don't. You asked me a question, and I answered it, and it's what I see. You and the cops -- you're just grabbing at anything that'll get you where you hope you can go. And I'm not saying that I'm not the solution to your problem. I probably am. Just don't know if I fit the pattern, that's all.

Ryan: Really? The casino, your bullets, your hand on the shovel -- you tell me if I forgot something.

Zach: When you were shot, everyone assumed that you were the target. What if you weren't? Hmm? What if it was just a mistake?

Ryan: Are you going to use this in court, because it really sucks as a defense, especially with your hit man running around.

Zach: A hit man theory -- that is interesting, too.

Ryan: My wife was poisoned, Zach. No theory. Very real.

Zach: You're right, that's real. I don't know, maybe it was random. But I got to tell you, the odds of both you guys being targets --

Ryan: You know what I don't need? I don't need a lesson in probability and statistics. I need --

Zach: You need what?

Ryan: I need a solution.

Zach: Of course you do. That is the kind of standup, take-charge guy you are. You're Ryan Lavery. You're the champ and hero to all. You want some solid, concrete answers so you can make your world black and white again. And I respect you for that, I really do.

Ryan: I want you to tell me what I need to know right now.

Maria: Where's Zach?

Ethan: Whoa, whoa, whoa --

Maria: Is he in there?

Ethan: Maria, it's all right.

Maria: No, no, it is not all right.

Ethan: It's all right. Wait.

Maria: Where's Derek?

Ryan: Maria --

Maria: I want to give my statement.

Ryan: No, no --

Maria: I want to give my statement --

Ryan: Just let me --

Maria: And I want him put away.

Simone: Hmm.

Jonathan: Thanks, Tommy. This -- this is great. I feel like a regular person.

Simone: Well, you are a regular person.

Jonathan: Thank you.

Simone: Look, we all have problems.

Jonathan: Yeah, and if you listen to the gossip, I'm -- you know what? I don't care. No, I don't. I don't care what they're saying.

Simone: Well, I wouldn't know. I don't run around the same circle as Kendall and Greenlee. No backstage action, gossip, or otherwise.

Jonathan: They should include you in more of their decisions.

Simone: Yeah, well, it's really all right. I get paid the same.

Jonathan: Still, you should get the credit you deserve.

Simone: You think?

Jonathan: I do. I just think back to the beginning, with the guerrilla marketing and the total edge and the attitude, and it hasn't stopped.

Simone: Oh. Thank you.

Jonathan: You're welcome. I just don't think the wigs appreciate you enough.

Simone: I feel appreciated now.

[Knock on door]

David: Oh, great.

Kendall: Come on, David, we can see you in there. We know you're in there.

David: More trouble.


David: If you're selling cookies, I'm not interested.

Greenlee: No --

Kendall: Excuse us! Thank you.

David: Hello! I'm busy! What are you doing?

Greenlee: You going somewhere?

David: That depends. What do you want? Look, just put that down! All right, what is this? Just get out of here, all right? I've had enough jerks come up from the crusades.

Greenlee: We're not jerks.

Kendall: Yeah, we're not leaving until you help us.

David: Personally, you're beyond help.

Kendall: All we need is one of your famous designer drugs.

David: What, are you out of your minds?

Kendall: No, it's not our minds we're worried about.

David: All right, look, just get out of here.

Greenlee: We will, as soon as you give us something guaranteed to bring on the truth.

David: So you want some kind of a truth serum?

Kendall: The kind that makes someone spill their guts.

Greenlee: No needles, odorless, tasteless, liquid, and fast.

Kendall: Just a few drops in the drink, someone takes a hit of that, and they end up like a third-grader in the principal's office.

David: Did you even think about asking whoever it is nicely?

Kendall: You know, we're almost past the point of asking you nicely. You going to help us or not?

David: Chemically induced honesty, huh? Interesting. But there are better ways. All right, who's the target? Maybe we can talk to --

Greenlee: No "we." It's just us and you. Don't play overprotective brother-in-law now.

Kendall: We don't want to end up like your last partner -- in day-glo orange doing 10 in the pen.

Greenlee: How is Krystal? She made any new friends?

David: All right, that's enough. Just get the hell out.

Kendall: You know, David, for a doctor, you -- you are really not that smart. After what you did to me, my sister, and my niece, you owe me big.

Greenlee: You owe a lot of us, and you don't get to say no.

David: Greenlee, are you threatening me?

Kendall: Ok, listen. You are now in the land of Nod. We tell you what we want and you nod. Can you do that for us?

Greenlee: How about a practice run? David, you going to make us a truth serum?

David: What have you both been sniffing?

Greenlee: Wrong answer.

David: Hey!

Greenlee: Want to do this again?

David: All right, that's enough. If Leo were here right now --

Greenlee: He wouldn't talk to you.

Kendall: Why don't you consider this a fraction of the payback for what you did to my sister?

David: Look, trust me, I will always regret the pain that I caused Bianca.

Greenlee: Then prove it.

Kendall: Come on, we're letting you start off so easy.

David: Oh, really? If it's so easy, why don't you make it yourselves?

Kendall: Come on, David. Listen, it's not like we're asking you to do the impossible here. You are the master of all mix-masters. You could do this in your sleep. Just say we have a deal.

Greenlee: Or we'll start experimenting on our own.

Tad: Hi.

Brooke: Hi.

Tad: I remember the day this was taken.

Brooke: How do you stand on secrets these days?

Tad: Well, I think it's considered sporting to fire a warning shot first. Secrets -- you know me. For years, "what they don't know won't hurt them" seemed to work just fine, but after everything we've been through, I -- I think they're just about the worst thing you can do to someone, especially somebody you care about. And it doesn't matter what you tell yourself -- that you don't want them to get hurt, you're trying to protect them, and it's for their own good --

Brooke: I've used those up already.

Tad: Well, the truth may not win you friends, but in the end, everybody's better off. What exactly am I being tested on?

Brooke: Edmund was lying to Maria, for months. He didn't want the reconciliation. He didn't want it. It was all a con. He didn't want their marriage to work. He just wanted to punish Maria. And she doesn't have a clue.

Maria: You should be the one in the body bag, not my husband. You killed him, and you're spewing filthy lies about him. And I don't understand why.

Ryan: Maria --

Maria: Why?

Ryan: Maria --

Maria: Every single thing is going to come out about you, and I'm going to make sure that it sticks, every bit of it, and you're not going to turn this around on my husband again. Do you understand me, Zach? Are you listening to me?

Derek: You ok, Maria?

Maria: I am going to give you my statement, is what I want to do, Derek.

Derek: Ok, I'll get an officer to take it.

Maria: Thank you. I want to tell you everything.

Derek: Why don't we go outside?

Ethan: Let me go outside with you. Come on.

Ryan: Well, I guess you really do hurt the ones you love. I mean, Maria -- she was your greatest defender, wasn't she? The whole Slater/Cambias identity crisis, your son -- she backed you. It's like she explained all of the twisted stuff that you did, but now looks like she's finally seen the light.

Zach: Maria has every right to curse the man she believes killed her husband.

Ryan: And what about the rest of us? I mean, I get why you shot at me, but what about Greenlee? Why would you poison her? She's innocent. What about Kendall? Why her? What could you possibly hope to get out of all that?

Zach: Can you hear yourself right now? Can you hear how desperate you sound?

Ryan: I am desperate. I'm desperate for an answer.

Zach: You don't want an answer. You want security. You want a nice safe world to wrap up in.

Ryan: Yeah, that's fine, that's exactly what I want, so tell me.

Zach: And where is the fun in that? I like you, Ryan, and I would hate to deprive you of the journey and the road that it took to get me here. And, yes, I am going to enjoy the day when the truth finally hits you over the head.

Ryan: I don't have to listen to a lecture from a guy who created a son that hates him.

Zach: Ethan is who he is because of you. If you hadn't pushed him, he'd still be who he was -- honest and free.

Ryan: Honest? He told the truth. You were here. That works for me.

Zach: You don't get it, do you? But you will.

Ryan: So what? Are you upset because he didn't protect you? You want him to come and lie? Is that what a real son would do? Lie?

Zach: You think you're so moral, don't you? Your interference has caused more damage than I could even imagine. Ready for my statement.

David: It's not so simple to just drug someone. It's risky.

Kendall: Well, that's why we came to you. You're the expert on this.

David: Especially with a drug that hasn't been approved by the F.D.A. or been tested. I mean, yes, the drug might work, but there can also be some unintended side effects, do irreparable damage.

Kendall: Well --

David: What?

Greenlee: Who do you think you're talking to? We didn't take the amnesia drug that you made. Maria did. What was it called? "Forget-about-it-all"?

Kendall: Something like that, yeah.

David: Ha-ha-ha, very funny.

Kendall: Yeah, funny is an overview on ethics from the man who put whatever that Libidozone drug was in Ryan's little punch at his love boat party.

David: That was an accident. I've already paid for it, thank you.

Greenlee: Maria is still paying for that drug that you gave her. Zach Slater here, Edmund dead. So don't give us the evils of tilting someone's chemical balance over into our favor.

David: All I'm saying is it can be dangerous. Be aware of the consequences.

Greenlee: Yeah, if we don't do this, the consequences could be monumental.

Kendall: Believe me, there's no reason I'd come anywhere near you.

David: Hey, feel free to leave anytime.

Greenlee: We can't. This is important, David. We have tried everything. We've asked this person straight on, we've hired investigators, and there's always an answer, always a lie.

David: Wait a minute. Are we talking about Ryan here? Has he hurt you? Because if he did, I'll beat the truth out of him.

Kendall: All right, forget about who it's for, ok? Just concentrate on making the serum.

Greenlee: We don't want to hurt anyone. We just need an answer that could help a lot of people.

David: You?

Kendall: Yes or no?

David: On one condition.

Kendall and Greenlee: Yes.

Tad: What a mess.

Brooke: What do I do? Am I just supposed to tell Maria that Edmund was setting her up for a big fall?

Tad: No, you don't. I've gotten my head kicked in recently for all the stupid things I've done. I think you should get your advice somewhere else.

Brooke: I choose you.

Tad: I don't know, maybe -- maybe there are some -- some secrets that should go to the grave.

Brooke: Believe me, there's nothing more that I would like to do than bury this. Mean, you should have seen Maria. She feels totally responsible for everything -- for the fact that she brought Zach into their lives, she jeopardized their marriage. She's convinced that she made Edmund's last few months miserable.

Tad: That's ridiculous. It's stupid. If anybody's to blame for it, it's David Hayward. She's not responsible for what she dragged back from la-la land.

Brooke: According to Edmund, they were having an affair. And maybe Maria should feel some guilt. Still --

tad: Do you think she was right? About the affair?

Brooke: I don't know. I don't know what to think.

Brooke: I just know that the Edmund Maria's mourning is not the man she fell in love with. The Edmund that we knew was kind and honest and forgiving. And the last time I talked to him, he was a stranger. He was cold, and the only thing he could think about was -- was destroying Zach Slater and shattering Maria's life. What kind of a man does that to a woman that he loved and who was the mother of his children?

Tad: Edmund Grey was one of the best friends I ever had. I don't care what anybody says. He had himself a hell of a year. A bullet in the back put him in a wheelchair and then almost cost his marriage. And I don't care how ugly it sounds. I'm not going to judge him.

Brooke: It's not about judgment. It isn't. It's just about doing the right thing. I mean, is it fair for Maria to go through the rest of her life mourning something that's not real? And if I tell her, is it just going to wipe out all the wonderful memories of Edmund that she should have?

Tad: Why do you do this to me? Give me that thing. I got your answer, but I don't think you're going to like it. You're on your own.

Brooke: Is that all you can give me?

Tad: No. Whatever you decide, I'll always be with you, every step of the way.

Brooke: How did this happen? Edmund's gone.

Tad: I know, baby, I know.

Zach: Family curse in full effect. You got your wish. I'm sorry I let you down.

Ethan: You can rot, Zach.

Derek: All right, let's get this over with. I prefer to do this privately.
