Myrtle: Edmund wouldn't take any reward for saving my little nest egg from that swindler. You know, Pine Valley just won't be the same without him.

Maria: Well, I know he thought you were pretty special, too, Myrtle.

Opal: Well, I would bet my beautician's license that he is sitting up on some cloud right now, looking down on all of us gathered here, all weeping and sad, saying, "Why the heck is everyone making such a big ruckus over little ol' me?"

(Myrtle laughs)

Anita: I'm not sure he'd put it quite like that.

Myrtle: It's your own fault, Edmund, for bein' such a nice guy.

Brooke: OK, everything's, uh, all taken care of. There's a, uh, car waiting to take you to meet Sam at the airport as soon as he arrives.

Maria: Thank you, I -- that was on my To Do list, um--

Brooke: Don't worry about it. I'm here to help.

Opal: We all are.

Maria: Thank you.

(Doorbell rings)

Maria: I'll get it.

Anita: No, let me.

Maria: No, no, I'll get it, I'll get it. I'm fine. (Sighs) I was fine.

Judge: Court's adjourned.

Bailiff: All rise.

Kendall: (Sighs) Attempted murder charges? Buh-bye. So, my dear, how does it feel to be vindicated?

Ethan: Bloody fantastic. Livia, thank you so much for expediting the process.

Livia: Well, you're just damned lucky that someone else confessed to the crime.

Ethan: Hmm-mm. Helps.

Livia: True.

Kendall: Bye. So, where shall we celebrate? Should we do a bar, a restaurant, the bedroom...

Ethan: Hmm...

Kendall: Paris?

Ethan: I think we should definitely do all of the above, but not just yet. There's a lovely little surprise coming through that door first that I would like to enjoy.

Kendall: Oh, what do you have up your sleeve?

Ethan: Zach Slater is being arraigned. I would like to watch the little rotter hang.

Aidan: You know, for a guy that's just about to be arraigned on murder charges, you look pretty damned relaxed. Now, you're probably wondering why I'm here. I'm here because there are lots of things about you, Slater, that have me confused right now. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't doubt for a second that you are capable of killing Edmund in cold blood or that you tried to do the same thing to Ryan because you saw both men as threats. But you don't strike me as the kind of man who's going to poison a harmless, unsuspecting woman. Am I right?

David: I'm going to sue you and this whole damn city if you even think about Chandler's insane idea about demolishing my house. Do you hear me? Unbelievable. J.R. is threatening to get back at me by ripping down my house.

Greenlee: If I would've known, I would've brought my wrecking ball and helped him out.

David: What's your problem?

Greenlee: Not what. Who. Because of you, David, I lost my one chance to get to the truth, a truth that could save my marriage and Ryan.

Ryan: Wake up, little brother.

Jonathan: No, Dad.

Ryan: Nap time's over. It's not Dad.

Jonathan: Huh?

Ryan: It's me. It's Ryan. Hey.

Jonathan: What's going on?

Ryan: It's over. Jonathan, I'm going to put you away. That's right. You opened up to me last night. You don't remember? I know what you did. You poisoned my wife.

Greenlee: That truth serum that Kendall and I got from you? I recall being purposely vague about why we needed that stuff. There was a reason for that. I was trying to send a message -- "Don't ask, butt out, none of your business." So why'd you run to Ryan and tell him about it?

David: I thought he was the one you were using it on. If Ryan was lying to you or cheating on you, I was going to straighten him out.

Greenlee: I've told you a million times, David, stay out of my marriage. Ryan would never hurt me.

David: Yeah, well, obviously, things aren't all peaches and cream in Lavery land or you wouldn't be so mad that I blew your cover.

Greenlee: No, it was none of your business. I told you I would handle it.

David: I was worried about you, Greenlee. What do you expect?

Greenlee: I expect you to turn a blind eye. You've been pretty good at that lately.

David: What is that supposed to mean?

Greenlee: I came to you for help months ago, and you were too busy running interference with that skanky, baby-napping daughter of yours.

David: Don't talk about Babe like that. I don't remember you asking for my help.

Greenlee: I came here to see you in this about-to-be-tinder cabin. I told you I wasn't feeling like myself, you promised to check me out? Ring any bells? Probably not since I never heard from you again. Oh, but don't feel bad. I only went crazy, almost threw myself off Fusion's rooftop, and ended up in a psych ward.

David: You what?

Greenlee: Yeah, I was being poisoned by Ryan's brother. I'm positive.

David: Oh, my God!

Greenlee: Hard to believe? Yeah, you're not the only one. Ryan refuses to accept it. I was going to use that truth serum on Jonathan. But then you had to butt in, tip Ryan off, and Ryan showed up just as Jonathan was about to confess.

David: Wait a minute, are you telling me that Ryan wouldn't even let you ask his psycho brother the million-dollar question?

Greenlee: Oh, no. He was mad as hell. He got his brother out of there before he could say another word. And now, thanks to you and your big mouth, I'll never get the truth out of Jonathan.

Ryan: You finally told me the truth last night, Jonathan. I know. I know what you did to my wife.

Jonathan: I have no idea what you're talking about, Ryan.

Ryan: You forgot? You forgot that you opened up? What you told me about the old man and the death games and that he tortured you, and he made you believe that you could be killed any moment? You forgot that?

Jonathan: I -- I told you about that?

Ryan: Yes, you did, and it's sick what he did to you. And I get that it messed with your head -- I get that -- but it is no excuse for what you did to my wife. She -- she almost died. She could've died!

Jonathan: Ryan, I have no idea what you're talking about right now, all right? I -- I had a date with Simone. I went to Fusion to pick her up. We had a bottle of red wine --

Ryan: Right, mixed with a drug. There was a drug in the wine.

Jonathan: What?

Ryan: It makes people tell the truth. It was some sort of truth serum.

Jonathan: Truth serum?

Ryan: Yes.

Jonathan: What?

Ryan: Compliments of David Hayward.

Jonathan: Hayward? Hayward spiked my drink? What does Hayward have against me?

Ryan: Nothing. He supplied the drug. Greenlee is the one that used it on you.

Jonathan: So she's back to crazy again?

Ryan: No. She did what she had to do to get you to tell the truth, and the truth is, is that you poisoned her.

Jonathan: You believe that?

Ryan: All the times she came to me, and she tried to convince me that it was you. And what did I do? I turned my back on her because my brother would never do something that twisted to the woman I love. I was so sure -- let me speak. I was so sure that you were innocent that I didn't even keep you away from her. Now, can you imagine how scared she would be spending time with the man that she knew poisoned her? Meanwhile, her husband, the guy that is supposed to protect her all the time, wouldn't see the truth! It makes me nauseous!

Jonathan: Ryan, listen to me, you've got it all wrong.

Ryan: Guess what -- stop, because the drug has worn off, Jonathan. You can't change your story now. You've already confessed. So now you fill in the blanks. Were you just trying to drive my wife crazy or were you trying to kill her?

Kendall: No, Greenlee and I still think that Jonathan's the freak who poisoned her, not Zach.

Ethan: Well, then I'm sorry, but you're still wrong. Look, Zach admitted going after Greenlee, that he tried to kill Ryan. He succeeded with Edmund. God knows how many other crimes the guy's probably got away with by now. Why are you looking at me like that?

Kendall: Well, because you're handling this awfully well.

Ethan: Well, to be honest, it really doesn't come as that much of a shock to me.

Kendall: Yeah, but it couldn't be easy for you. I mean, I get that you want to snap Zach out of your family tree. I know you went your whole life without knowing the man, and then, when you met him face to face, he flat out denied he was your father. That blows, no question.

Ethan: So you shouldn't be so surprised that I really don't care that much about him.

Kendall: Yes, but I know how hard it is to dismiss your own parent, no matter how awful things have gotten. I went my whole life without knowing who my father was. And when I finally met him and realized how evil he was, it nearly destroyed me.

Ethan: Kendall, I'm sorry for what you had to go through, I know it was very hard, but our situations are completely different. I expected this from Zach, and I've made peace with it.

Kendall: Ethan, don't do this to me.

Zach: I'm capable of lots of things -- lying, cheating, scamming. And you think I'd stop short at, what, poisoning little Greenlee?

Aidan: Yeah. I do, actually.

Zach: Why?

Aidan: Because you choose opponents that can fight back.

Zach: What, like Edmund? He was in a wheelchair, and he couldn't fight back.

Aidan: I have questions about that crime, too. The only witness to the murder was your son, and it's no secret that your son hates you. Which you can't really fault him for. But what I'm worried about is that that hatred runs so deep that he's going to try and accuse you of a murder that you didn't commit.

Zach: Huh. There is one tiny flaw in your brilliant deduction. I confirmed the accusation.

Aidan: Which brings me to my next question. You see, many people have accused you of many crimes, including taking a shot at Ryan, and you have denied each charge. And now, all of a sudden, out of the blue, "I'm the killer. I'm the poison pusher." You see why I need your help? I can't work it out.

Zach: So -- so what do you think, I'm innocent? You want to go out there and clear my name? That's sweet, Aidan, all right, but I'm not interested.

Man: Good morning, Mr. Slater. I hate to break this up, but I really need some time alone with you before we go to court.

Zach: I have nothing to say.

Man: I'm here to help you. It's not in your best interests to continue to turn me away. You will regret it later.

Zach: No, I have no regrets.

Erica: It's just so hard to believe, isn't it, Myrtle?

Myrtle: We lost a good man.

Opal: Just rattles my bones! I mean, who would want to hurt such a lovable guy as Edmund?

Erica: Zach Slater, apparently.

Maria: What are you doing here, Erica?

Erica: Excuse me?

Maria: You heard me.

Erica: I'm here to offer my condolences. I'm here to extend my sympathy to you and your family.

Maria: Yeah, I don't buy it, because I know you couldn't care less about Edmund. You're here to say what's on your mind, so say what's on your mind.

Erica: I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean.

Maria: I'm sorry because I don't think I could be clearer. You're a phony and you're not here to mourn Edmund. You're here to rub it in my face.

Brooke: Maria, come on.

Maria: No, that's exactly what she's here to do! Just say what you have to say, Erica! Say it, ok? You're so happy that I am grieving and I am miserable! Just say it! Say it! Tell everybody that I deserve it, I had it coming! You loved it when you saw me with Zach in the cemetery, even though you had absolutely no idea what you witnessed. You took those Jimmy Choos and you ran straight to Edmund and told him that I was having an affair! You couldn't wait for my marriage to disintegrate!

Anita: Maria, please don't do this.

Maria: No, this is true! She is thrilled that the absolute worst thing in the world is happening to me, and you are ecstatic!

Myrtle: No, that's not true.

Brooke: Maria, why don't we go upstairs and get Sam's room ready?

Erica: No, no, don't -- don't stop her. Obviously, Maria feels very strongly about this. Maria, do you honestly believe what you say? Do you really think that I'm happy about what's happened?

Maria: I think you're elated that you got the ball rolling, so proud of yourself.

Opal: Has anybody tried that cheese ball that I brought?

Maria: Just admit it. Please? You knew exactly what you were doing when you ran straight to Edmund and you told him that I was betraying him.

Erica: Well, you did betray him. I mean, don't tell me that you plan to stand here and deny it.

Maria: You have absolutely no idea what went on in my marriage.

Erica: You do, don't you? You -- you plan to deny that you did anything wrong. Well, I mean, whatever. I know the truth.

Maria: You are absolutely heinous.

Erica: I'm heinous? Maria, you led another man on. You incited Zach to kill Edmund so that you could carry on with him.

Jonathan: Ok, Ryan, listen to me, ok, you're mad. I get that. I didn't try to kill your wife. Ok? I didn't do anything to Greenlee. Ryan, you have to believe me.

Ryan: I did believe you. I believed you over my own wife. I mean, all the times I had your back, what was that for? For what? You lied to my face.

Jonathan: No, Ryan, you're wrong!

Ryan: I asked you last night. I asked you if my own brother poisoned my wife, and you said yes.

Jonathan: I didn't poison anyone!

Ryan: How could you do this to me, man? I mean, I was happy that you were back in my life, you were back around again. I thought we were tight. I mean, I knew you had your problems, all right, but I had your back no matter what! Not for one second would I ever imagine that my brother, my own brother, could turn on me like this.

Jonathan: Ryan, I didn't turn on you! I would never turn on you, Ryan! Please, I didn't do this!

Ryan: I want the truth now! All of it, right now!

Brooke: For God's sake. Erica, Maria is mourning her husband. Did you really have to accuse her of taking part in his death?

Erica: I came here to offer my condolences. Maria pushed me to say those things.

Brooke: Well, then tell her that you didn't mean it. Tell her you're sorry.

Erica: Brooke, everything I said is true. Maria knows that, and I suspect so do you.

Brooke: Well, Maria�s right, then, isn't she? You want her to suffer.

Erica: Well, I mean, if anyone deserves to suffer, it's Maria after what she did to Edmund.

Brooke: Do you really want to go there? Because I could bring out a laundry list of your past affairs.

Erica: Say what you want to about me. I mean, look, I'm just so sick and tired of everybody standing by Maria. I mean, she plays this town like a fiddle, as if she's some sort of long-suffering saint, which she is not. She used Edmund and she used Zach, and now both the men are paying for what she did? And I'm only just very sorry that Edmund had to pay with his life.

Brooke: Oh, don't even try to defend Zach Slater.

Erica: Are you kidding? I'm very happy they locked up Zach Slater. I mean, he's proven himself to be a true Cambias, just as evil as his brother. So as far as I'm concerned, that man deserves to be locked up for the rest of his life.

Ethan: My father deserves to rot in prison for what he's done, Kendall, that's a fact, but it has nothing to do with you.

Kendall: See, there you go. You're doing it again. Would you please stop?

Ethan: I'm not doing anything.

Kendall: Yes, you are. You're slamming the door in my face. Now, I know everything is not all right. Don't pretend that it is.

Ethan: Kendall, I would never slam a door in your face.

Kendall: Ethan, listen to me, I've been where you are, ok? I know what you're doing. Don't shut me out, please. I don't know if you're doing it to protect yourself or to protect me, but it's not going to last. Trust me, the pain always comes back. Now, please, just be real with me. Just open up and be real so I can help you deal with this.

Ethan: I'm not hiding anything.

Kendall: No? Ethan, you saw your father kill a man. No matter how much you hate him, you can't be ok with that.

David: Jonathan is one sick Lavery.

Greenlee: Yeah, well, until I can prove he drugged me, he's going to keep getting away with it.

David: Why wasn't he thrown in jail after what he did to Bianca?

Greenlee: If he wasn't jailed for smacking Maggie, I don't see how scaring the life out of Bianca would stick.

David: That bastard hit Maggie?

Greenlee: You didn't know? I figured that was one of the reasons she left town.

David: What? When did that happen? Maggie never said a word to me.

Greenlee: Wow. Guess it's true -- what goes around comes around.

David: What is that supposed to mean, Greenlee?

Greenlee: You're getting a taste of your own medicine, David. I guess your cousin wasn't eager to confide in you after you helped Babe keep Bianca's baby.

David: This is unbelievable. How the hell could I have missed all this?

Greenlee: What are you doing?

David: I may have been out of the loop for a while, but now my eyes are wide open. Jonathan Lavery's not going to hurt you, Maggie, or Bianca or anybody else ever again.

Jonathan: God, Ryan!

Ryan: How do want to do this, Jonathan? Because guess what -- I'm not going anywhere until you tell me why you're after Greenlee.

Jonathan: Ryan, for the hundredth time, I didn't --

Ryan: This is my wife that we're talking about here. You understand that? I would do anything in my power to protect her. So two choices -- you tell me willingly, or I will get it out of you, brother or no brother.

Jonathan: Ryan, come on --

Ryan: How could you look me in the eye every day and tell me that you look up to me while you were slowly destroying --

Jonathan: Ryan!

Ryan: The one woman that meant more to me than the whole world! I want the truth!

Jonathan: Ryan, Ryan, just let go! Your brother did poison Greenlee. It wasn't me. Ryan, it was Braden. Braden did it.

Greenlee: I said give it to me. God, David. You can't just give Jonathan a lethal drug to make up for lost time.

David: Oh, just relax, all right? I wasn't going to kill the freak. I was just going to deaden his psychopathic tendencies!

Greenlee: How about you let me handle it?

David: No, that request is all played out, Greenlee, and it's not like it's gotten you very far.

Greenlee: Oh, and these whacked concoctions that you come up with, they've gotten you so far?

David: You know something, you're absolutely right! I've got nothing left to lose! My MD license is gone! I can't use my talents to heal sick people, but I can use them to protect the people that I love, which is exactly what I intend to do.

Greenlee: Well, I don't need your protecting, David, not anymore.

David: All right, come on, Greenlee, don't say that. You're right, I checked out for a while, but I'm trying to make up for it now.

Greenlee: You blabbed to Ryan about the truth serum. When I was losing my mind, you were too busy aiding and abetting Babe. Worst of all, you turned your back on my family when you turned on Bianca.

David: You don't think I hate what I put Bianca through?

Greenlee: You feel bad after the fact. Well, it's too late. Doesn't make me want to forgive and forget. You kept a baby from her mother. That's unforgivable.

David: You're right. You're right, it was a terrible thing to do. But it's done and I can't take it back, so can we please just move forward?

Greenlee: No. I can't even pretend that I still feel the same way about you. I shouldn't have come to you for that truth juice. It was just a moment of desperation. I should've known I couldn't depend on you, but I guarantee it won't happen again.

David: I'm trying to make things right here, Greenlee.

Greenlee: And for the gazillionth time, stop trying, David! I don't need your help with Jonathan. I don't want you involved in my life anymore. It's over, David. Thanks for nothing.

[Door slams]

Ryan: I don't believe this.

Jonathan: Ryan, I know it sounds insane, even ridiculous, but Braden poisoned Greenlee.

Ryan: You have the nerve to stand there and lie to my face. You even throw Braden in the mix? It's not only lame, it's stupid.

Jonathan: Ryan, I -- God, you've got to believe me! I wish it weren't true, man --

Ryan: Braden disappeared, like, what, five years ago? He was a pariah in this town. If he showed up for one second, he'd be lynched. Stop lying!

Jonathan: I didn't want to tell you about this, man. I tried to keep it from you.

Ryan: I want the truth!

Jonathan: Don't look at me that way. That's how Dad used to look at me, Ryan. Don't look at me that way! Don't look at me like you hate me!

Ryan: Right now, I'm damn close, Jonathan.

Jonathan: All right, what do I, what do I do? I can't take this, Ryan. Man, I can't risk losing you. Ryan, you're all I have left! Ok. Ok. Ok, ok. I have to tell you about Braden. I've got to tell you everything.

Ryan: This ought to be good.

Jonathan: Braden looked me up last year a few months before I came to Pine Valley. I woke up in the middle of the night and someone's sitting on the edge of my bed. I freak out, I jump up, I turn the lights on, and there he was. He snuck into my apartment through an open window. He'd definitely been drinking and he was not stable. He said he'd been in Canada. He'd been living hand-to-mouth and that he'd been hospitalized there and that they'd put him on some kind of antipsychotic, but he didn't like the way it made him feel and he took himself off it, and, Ryan, it was the same antipsychotic that they found in Greenlee's system.

Ryan: Wow. Jonathan, I got to give you a little bit of credit here. This -- this is a good story. You actually put a lot of effort into this story.

Jonathan: Ryan, I hadn't seen Braden in years, man. I knew he came to me wanting something!

Ryan: Ok, I'll play along. What was he doing there?

Jonathan: That's -- that's the worst part. He came to me, asking me what I knew about my big brother Ryan because he had been in the papers and read that you just inherited Cambias Industries. And he said that you didn't deserve anything after what you'd done to him.

Ryan: Oh, now, you see, that's where your story breaks down, Jonathan, because I protected Braden. I took a rap for him.

Jonathan: He said you turned your back on him, like everybody else in Pine Valley, and that it was time for you to pay and he was going to take you out. And that, Ryan, is why I really came to Pine Valley, to try to stop Braden and talk some sense into him. I hoped I could get him some help and I wanted to save you at the same time.

Ryan: Ok, let's say for just one second that I believe your story. If he was after me, then why did he poison Greenlee?

Jonathan: Because you didn't die when he shot you.

Brooke: Get out.

Erica: Brooke, I have as much right to be here as anyone.

Brooke: You accomplished what you came for, didn't you? You caused a scene, you humiliated the widow. I mean it. Get out. I don't want Maria to see you here again.

Erica: Now you're her bodyguard? Well, that's very generous of you, considering all you have going on in your personal life that needs looking after -- your son, Jamie the kidnapper, for example. I have it on good authority that he's been under the gun lately.

Brooke: Well, that's because you're in on it.

Erica: I applaud it.

Brooke: You're in cahoots with J.R. and Adam in order to torment Babe and Jamie, and I'm warning you, back off my son or we're going to be attending your memorial next.

Erica: Now, now, Brooke. Do you really think this is the time or place to be making idle threats?

Brooke: Oh, I'm not kidding.

Erica: I know what this is really about. This is you avoiding pain. And it must be hard. It must be very hard for you to mourn the death of a man you loved but could never hold on to for yourself.

Anita: That's enough, Erica. Enough.

Bailiff: All rise!

Aidan: Are you sure you want to be here for this?

Judge: You may be seated. Mr. Slater, you're charged with the first-degree murder of Edmund Grey. What is your plea?

Lawyer: My client pleads not guilty, Your Honor, and we request that a reasonable bail be set.

Prosecutor: Your Honor, it is the state's recommendation that Mr. Slater be denied bail. This murder was a cold-blooded, premeditated act on the defendant's part. Given the serious nature of this crime, as well as pending charges against the defendant for aggravated assault and attempted murder and two other charges, we believe that Mr. Slater is a danger to the community, not to mention a flight risk.

Lawyer: My client hasn't been formally charged with any other offenses. Therefore, they shouldn't have any bearing on this case.

Prosecutor: The defendant has already admitted to committing these crimes, Your Honor.

Zach: I'll make this easy for everyone, Your Honor. Lock me up and throw away the key.

Erica: I am not going to let you two continue to insult me when all I came to do was honor Edmund's memory.

Anita: How, by attacking Brooke and my sister?

Erica: I came here to remember my dear friend.

Anita: And all you've done is disrupt a family gathering.

Erica: You want to talk about disrupting families, Anita?

Brooke: Oh, enough already, Erica.

Erica: It's because of you and your boyfriend that Lily wound up being trapped in that fire.

Opal: Sweetie, now would be a good time --

Erica: You never should have allowed her to just run off on her own.

Anita: Aidan and I both regret what Lily went through that night.

Erica: You don't know that half of it.

Myrtle: Erica, Erica, darling, why don't you drive me home?

Erica: For your information, Anita, Lily wound up not only trapped in the fire, she witnessed Edmund's murder.

Anita: What? No.

Erica: Oh, yes. And that would be traumatic enough for anyone, but can you imagine what it did to someone like Lily? I mean, she is completely shut down. Jackson can't get through to her, I can't get through to her.

Anita: I'm -- I'm sorry. What can I do?

Erica: You can stay away from her, and you can tell your boyfriend to do the same.

Myrtle: Erica, Erica, that's enough now, darling. You've made your point. This is not the place, honey.

Erica: You know, I'm not the problem here. I really am not! I mean, I'm not responsible for the grief in this house. Do I need to remind you all I was once part of this family? I was a part of this family when I was married to Edmund's brother, Dimitri, and I cared very much what happened to Edmund and I have always wanted what's best for him, which is more than I can say for his widow.

[Door slams]

Zach: Why are you wasting everybody's time? Lock me up. Just go ahead, do it.

Judge: That's enough, Mr. Slater. Counselor, I recommend you get your client in line before going to trial.

Lawyer: I apologize, Your Honor.

Zach: Don't apologize for me! I'm not sorry for anything, and I'm looking forward to seeing the Pine Valley version of justice. Maybe I'll get lucky, get killed like my brother.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Keep your comments to yourself, Mr. Slater. Otherwise, I'll add contempt of court to this growing list of charges. Let the record show that bail has been denied to the defendant. Mr. Slater will remain in police custody until a trial date is set. Court is adjourned.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Bailiff: All rise!

Ethan: Finally, we get to see Zach Slater for the evil killer that he is.

Kendall: This is your father you're talking about.

Ethan: I know you're worried about me, Kendall, but believe me, I'm fine, and I'll be a lot better when Zach's locked up in prison where he belongs.

Zach: Maybe I can get you some better seats for the trial, son.

Brooke: I looked all over. Maria's nowhere in the house and her car is gone.

Anita: Well, I have to go find her.

Myrtle: Darling, call if you hear anything.

Anita: I will, and you do the same.

Myrtle: Yes, yes.

Opal: All right.

Anita: Aidan.

Aidan: Hi.

Anita: Hi.

Aidan: You paged me.

Anita: Yeah.

Aidan: What's up?

Anita: It's Maria. She's nowhere to be found. I don't know where she went.

Aidan: I was just with her at the courthouse for Zach's arraignment.

Anita: What? That's the last place she needs to be! I have to go get her out of there!

Brooke: No, let her stay. I understand why she went. She needs to know that the man who killed her husband is going to be brought to justice.

Anita: Ok.

Aidan: Are you ok?

Anita: No, not really. Things just keep getting worse. Wait till you find out why I paged you. It's Lily.

Aidan: What about Lily? What's up?

Anita: She saw Zach kill Edmund.

Ryan: Zach Slater already admitted to both shootings, Jonathan.

Jonathan: I don't know why, Ryan, because I -- I know for a fact that he didn't do it.

Ryan: This is insane. You dreamed this up. You're even more twisted than I thought.

Jonathan: Listen to me, Ryan. I know that Zach didn't do it because I watched your brother shoot you at the casino.

Ryan: You what?

Jonathan: I tried to stop him, Ryan. I tried to stop him, man, I swear I did! I'm still trying to stop him, man, but Braden won't give up! I just --

Ryan: What is this?

Jonathan: It was slipped under my door the other night. It's from Braden.

Ryan's voice: Sorry I missed you. Leave a message at the beep.

[Answering machine beeps]

David: Yeah, Ryan, it's David. I just got the lowdown on your brother Jonathan and what he did to Maggie and Greenlee, and I'm just calling to let you know that if you don't take that scum down, I'm going to do it for you.


David: What the hell is this?

Man: I'm just doing my job, man.

David: The Chandlers are not going to rip down my house. Do you hear me? I'm going to fight them and I'm going to win, and in the process, I'm going to tear them down with my bare hands.

Erica's voice: Lily, I know that it may not seem like this to you now, but it does help if you talk about it. So that night before the fire --

Lily: Red.

Erica: When -- I know. I know that the flames scared you.

Lily: Red. Red.

Erica: No, forget about the fire.

Lily: Red!

Erica: When you saw Aidan --

Lily: Red, red! Red, red!

Erica: Honey, it's ok. We won't talk about it any more now.

Lily: Red, red.

Erica: Your dad and Reggie went to get something to eat --

Lily: Ah! Red!

Erica: Oh, Lily!

Lily: Make it stop!

Erica: No, no, let me look.

Lily: Make it stop! Red!

Erica: Ok, it's not that bad. I'm going to get someone to help you.

Lily: Make it stop!

Erica: You take this and you cover up the red and I'll get you a bandage.

Lily: Wet red! Wet red! Wet red! Make it stop! Make it stop!

[Knock on door]

Erica: If your girlfriend has sent you over here, I'm going to tell you exactly what I told her.

Aidan: I know what you told Anita, but I need to see Lily. I need to speak to her about the murder.

Ethan: There we are. I brought a little celebration.

Kendall: Yes, now, that is what I call preparation.

Ethan: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: That's very impressive.

Ethan: Why, thank you very much.

Kendall: Yeah, ok, whoa!

Ethan: Ready? Ready?

Kendall: No, I'm not ready, no. No, Ethan, no. Whoa, stop! No! I'm sorry.

Ethan: Whoa!

Kendall: Thank you. We can't do this.

Ethan: Why not? Why not?

Kendall: We can't drink in the courtroom!

Ethan: What are you doing?

Kendall: Because if you get caught with booze in the courtroom, then it's not good.

Ethan: No, if we get caught with booze in the courtroom, darling, I will pay off whoever catches us. You want some?

Kendall: No, Ethan, Ethan, tell me, how much do you hate Zach?

Ethan: It's way beyond hate, Kendall.

Lawyer: If you act like that at trial, Slater, you can kiss any shot at getting off good-bye.

Zach: You will find that I'll behave any way I damn well please. Now get out of my face.

Maria: Tell me you killed Edmund because he was about to nail you for your crimes. Please tell me that you didn't kill him for me.

Jonathan: Don't you want to read it?

Ryan: You expect me to believe that this is from Braden?

Jonathan: Read it and you'll see.

Ryan: "Jonathan, quit getting in my way. Ryan's going to die. You're not going to stop me."

[Knock on door]

Jonathan: Ryan, don't, man. Don't. It could be Braden.

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

Babe: So are you telling me that I have a choice between Jamie and my baby?

Erica: I would never do anything to endanger Lily.

Aidan: You put her in the line of fire.

Maria: You had me totally fooled. I believed you! I believed you!

Zach: The reason we're here is because you believed Edmund.
