Aidan: Right. Whoever you are, I'm going to give you an A in kissing and a D-minus in fake drowning.

Amanda: Well, then I guess I should stick to what I do best.

J.R.: Knock, knock.

Ethan: I was wondering when you'd show up. Have a seat.

J.R.: You were expecting me?

Ethan: Of course. You're not the kind of man who slinks off to lick his wounds when he loses.

J.R.: Oh, Ethan, now, what makes you think that I have wounds to lick?

Ethan: My father dropped the fight for Cambias Industries and, with it, your chances of getting Chandler Enterprises back.

J.R.: Well, I haven't lost yet. In fact, a gorgeous woman in a bikini just held up a sign saying "Round 3."

Ethan: Mm-hmm. Well, I had it figured you'd want to fight, so why don't you go ahead and fight.

J.R.: First, I'm going to allow you the opportunity to party on my failure, rub a little humiliation in my face.

Ethan: I don't kick a man when he's down.

J.R.: Good. Then let's discuss what we're going to do about Kendall.

Kendall: Don't worry, Mother. There's no need to pick something off of our registry.

Erica: You're married to him? You can't be serious.

Zach: It was a wonderful ceremony. Kendall looked great, and I thought I cleaned up pretty nice. It's all on the video.

Kendall: Ok, Zach, that's a bit too far.

Erica: Look, I don't know what happened while I was gone, but whatever it is --

Kendall: Don't say it Mother, ok? Please. Nothing you can say or do will make me change my mind. This is something that I had to do, all right? Now, don't tell me that I've made a mistake, ok? This is something that I needed to do for me. It's -- I had to do it.

[Erica surprises her daughter by giving her a hug.]

Ryan: I've taken care of everything, Jack.

Jack: So let me understand this. You and Greenlee are over?

Ryan: Your top reason why Greenlee shouldn't stay married to a Lavery is done.

Jack: I see. So you plan to go ahead and divorce her without her consent?

Ryan: No, actually, we're going to do everything in our power to make this marriage work.

Greenlee: Are you going to help me get his sperm, or what?

Simone: Have you been sniffing hairspray? Did you just ask me to help you steal Ryan's --

Greenlee: Sperm. That's right.

Simone: Ok, the only swimmers I pay attention to are in Olympic-sized pools.

Greenlee: Ryan's got some of his little friends all bottled up. You and I are busting them out.

Simone: Ok. While I am open-minded, and I am normally willing to try just about anything, don't you think it's going to be a little crowded with the three of us?

Greenlee: No, no, no. I'm talking about the stuff you put on ice at the man stand.

Simone: Does Ryan know that you're a car seat short of a minivan?

Greenlee: Ryan's shut the valves to his pipeline, so to speak. So now I have to dip into the strategic reserves, and we're going to have to do it tonight.

Simone: Oh, to do that behind your back and not even tell you about it!

Greenlee: I couldn't believe Ryan did it either.

Simone: I am so sorry. You must feel awful.

Greenlee: I've been using more colorful adjectives.

Simone: God, I just kick him right there.

Greenlee: Go ahead. Wouldn't help.

Simone: How does he expect you to forgive him?

Greenlee: I never believed that Ryan would do something like this in a million years, but ever since his brothers died, everything with Ryan has been off. But I trusted him.

[Simone flashes to the apartment where she saw Ryan meeting a blonde.]

Ryan: I know I'm early, but --

Woman: No problem. We're always here for you.

Simone: Yeah. Ryan, of all people. Who would've thought?

Greenlee: The only sunny spot on this whole nightmare is the fact that Ryan made a deposit a few years back of all the chromosomes I need, in a sperm bank, and you and I are bringing them home to Mama.

Simone: Are you sure this one's not going to blow up in your face?

Greenlee: Ryan's going to see. Our little kid will save him from himself.

Simone: Maybe Ryan doesn't know what he wants anymore.

Greenlee: Well, he may not know what he wants now, but I know what he's going to want a few years from now, and I'm going to make sure it happens.

Simone: Greenlee, I don't think that this whole baby thing is such a good idea.

Ryan: Greenlee and I are as married as we've ever been, Jack.

Jack: I see. So you're telling me you two plan to stay together?

Ryan: But I have taken steps to make it easier on everyone --

Jack: Nothing with you has been easy for my daughter.

Ryan: If you'd stop talking and let me speak for one --

Woman: Ryan? I'm sorry. Mr. Lavery, this is for you.

[A blonde hands Ryan a key and leaves.]

Jack: This is how you're taking care of my daughter, Ryan?

Ryan: What are you talking about?

Jack: What am I talking about? It looks like you're about to meet somebody in a place that's normally locked. Now, a motel room comes to mind!

Ryan: Jack, you've crossed the line.

Jack: No, you've crossed the line!

Ryan: This has nothing to do with your daughter, Jack.

Jack: Let me tell you something, son, everything you do has something to do with my daughter, including strange women with mysterious keys.

Ryan: I have everything under control.

Jack: And just how are you controlling it, Ryan, huh? Who is that woman? What the hell does that key unlock?

Aidan: Are you like this with every guy you meet on the beach?

Amanda: No, just the yummy ones with the hot accents. I love the way some of you Brits drop your Hs.

Aidan: Well, if you like the way we speak so much, shouldn't you try looking at our face?

Amanda: And miss the good stuff? How'd you know I wasn't about to snuff it out there?

Aidan: Because of your tone of voice.

Amanda: Too high-pitched?

Aidan: No, too much "come and get me" and not enough terror.

Amanda: If you knew I was faking, then why'd you come get me anyway?

Aidan: Good excuse to practice my breaststroke.

Amanda: You don't need practice.

Aidan: If I didn't go out there, some other poor sap would've had to, wouldn't they?

Amanda: You tore into that water like your shorts were on fire.

Aidan: What can I say? Years of training.

Amanda: The swimming or the shorts?

Aidan: Thanks for the surprise kiss, but I really should go.

Amanda: Wait. I'm Amanda.

Aidan: Nice to meet you, Amanda.

J.R.: Stogy?

Ethan: No. Thank you.

J.R.: All right, suit yourself. I'll just leave these here as a little peace offering.

Ethan: I don't think you came here to smoke a peace pipe, J.R.

J.R.: You know, it's times like these I'm glad to be a member of the double comma club. You know, the amount of commas that are in your net worth?

Ethan: Triple comma beats double comma, right?

J.R.: As long as we can both drown our pain in the hedonistic, simple things in life.

Ethan: I have a funny feeling that you engage in more taboo activities than this.

J.R.: Ah, I don't know. Fine cigars, single malt scotch -- not a whole lot that's better -- well, unless of course they're twins. And get this -- Candy and Brandy?

Ethan: How very family friendly.

J.R.: Ah.

Ethan: And why wouldn't you want to keep them for yourself?

J.R.: Well, I've come to commiserate with you, old friend. We've both been hosed and hung out to dry by Kendall, and she did a damn good job, I might add. You know, if it was a few hundred years earlier, I think she would've been burned at the stake.

Ethan: Kendall no longer matters.

J.R.: What are you talking about? You mean, you're not going to go after her? You're just going to let Daddy walk all over you like that?

Zach: Hugs for everybody. Come on.

Erica: Sweetheart, I know what's driven you to this.

Kendall: No, Mother, nothing drove me to this decision. This is the first decision I've made that makes sense to me in a long time.

Erica: Oh, I so wish that I hadn't left you alone to go on my honeymoon.

Zach: I'll be back.

Kendall: Mother, there is no need to talk, ok? There's nothing to fix in my confused brain.

Erica: Do you honestly believe that this is --

Kendall: Listen, I know you're upset, all right, but everything's going to be fine.

Erica: "Fine"? How could it be fine as long as you're married to that?

Kendall: You don't understand. Listen, you -- you married a man that you have loved for years, and I married a man I don't love.

Erica: Yeah. Why in the world would you do that to yourself?

Kendall: Because he's exactly what I need.

Ryan: You know, I thought I would try and be the good guy --

Jack: You think keeping secrets from your wife makes you a good guy?

Ryan: Mending some fences with my father-in-law. I should've known it was impossible, that you're a narrow-minded --

Jack: Just give me a straight answer and tell me, are you cheating on my daughter?

Ryan: You get out.

Jack: Or what? You going to give me a taste of that Lavery temper again, huh?

Ryan: You don't want to go there, Jack.

Jack: I'm just trying to take care of my daughter, Ryan.

Ryan: So am I!

Greenlee: You haven't been listening.

Simone: Maybe now is not the right time to be popping out a kid.

Greenlee: This isn't about me. This isn't about me wanting something, determined to walk over anyone I need to get it.

Simone: It's about Ryan. I get it, ok? But maybe you guys should talk about it. Maybe there are things that you need to hash out just the two of you.

Greenlee: Ryan is in a very dangerous place right now. He's convinced himself that he can box all of his issues up and ship them on the next plane out of Pine Valley. The problem is there isn't enough postage, and it's all going to come right back to him.

Simone: Won't Ryan think you've baby-trapped him?

Greenlee: I've never been more sure about anything in my entire life. This baby is going to save him.

Simone: And now is the right time? I mean, maternity leave ain't what it used to be.

Greenlee: Have you ever seen Ryan with Miranda? It isn't even his daughter, and he lights up when he holds her. Ryan is made to be a father, and our marriage will take some hits, but we'll get through them stronger than ever.

Simone: You know, this is between the two of you. I shouldn't interfere.

Greenlee: Breaking and entering, lying to the cops, truth serums -- this is right up your alley. You're going to help me make it happen.

Simone: Have you ever thought that maybe Ryan has his own way of dealing with this?

Greenlee: Ok, unless you can give me a really good reason not to put a baby in my belly, my mind is made up.

Kendall: I had to marry Zach.

Erica: What could you possibly get out of this? Money? You have money. I'll give you more money.

Kendall: No, it's not about the money.

Erica: Well, you don't love him.

Kendall: Yes, that's exactly why I needed to do this. Does that make any sense?

Erica: No, not in the slightest. Kendall, don't do this to yourself.

Kendall: Mother, I don't do love. I mean, I do, but not very well.

Erica: Well, you have to go through a lot of bad ones, so you can finally realize when you have the right man. You'll see.

Kendall: Mother, this ring will stop future heartache from ever happening in the first place.

Erica: Kendall, you can't just close your heart forever.

Kendall: Maybe I can. Right now it's under construction.

Erica: Well, the walls you are building will only hurt you.

Kendall: Well, maybe a little, but not nearly as bad as the walls I already have up. I suck at relationships.

Erica: Well, then why don't you be alone for a while? It's ok to take a break from men.

Kendall: Yeah, most women can do that. I can't. I wish I could.

Erica: You mean, because you still need to be loved?

Kendall: I wish that I could do love and not get the hurt, but I can't. I mean, look at my horrible track record. I don't trust when I should, and I do trust when I shouldn't. Zach is a man that I don't trust, and I never should trust, so it just makes things easier.

Erica: Kendall, everyone has to go through the bad ones. Everyone. Look at me. I mean, I'm a spokesmodel for this. But I kept trying, and now I have everything I ever could possibly want.

Kendall: Mother, I can't handle any more love. I need easy. I need the "Do not disturb" sign around my neck.

Erica: Well, how long do you intend to go on with this marriage?

Kendall: I don't know. Maybe forever.

Erica: Oh, Kendall, this is not the answer.

Kendall: Ok, Mother, fact -- I make fundamental mistakes. So before I ever go back out there again, I need to learn how to stop them.

Erica: With Zach, of all people?

Kendall: Yes, he's perfect. Listen, if you're worried about it turning into something else, don't. I mean, as much as Zach has been through with Maria, I'm sure he's just as shut down as I am. So really, in a very warped way, we're perfect for each other.

Erica: No, you can never trust Zach.

Kendall: This isn't about me trusting him, this is about me trusting me. I mean, right now I'm not going to go into self-destruct mode with Zach. I'll have no ultimatums, no secrets, no tricks.

Erica: Kendall, this is way too convoluted.

Kendall: Mother, I love you. I do. I know this is all about you just wanting me to be happy.

Erica: That is all I want.

Kendall: Ok, well, right now I'm not really looking for happiness, ok? I'll settle for not being an emotional kamikaze. I'll settle for content.

Erica: You should never settle for anything. You need love in your life.

Kendall: Maybe I do. Right now this ring is my guardian. It's a reminder of what I'm capable of.

Erica: You are capable of great things.

Kendall: Zach is the one man I know I don't want. So for once in my life, I can finally concentrate on me. I can live my life for myself. Please, Mother, can you please accept that?

Ethan: As far as Kendall is concerned, I'm not going back there, ever.

J.R.: Ooh. You're serious about that?

Ethan: As a heart attack.

J.R.: So you're walking away from Kendall Hart, just when I was thinking we should be rejoining forces.

Ethan: J.R., you and I were never on the same team, ok? The only person you're looking out for is yourself.

J.R.: Well, aren't we all, deep down?

Ethan: I made the mistake of trusting you once before. I'm not about to make it again.

J.R.: Oh, Ethan, that hurts. Truly.

Ethan: J.R., you came in here, because you heard that my father has dropped his suit to steal Cambias away from me, which means that Kendall now doesn't have any access to Chandler Enterprises, which is the only reason you care.

J.R.: So you're not counting the extracurriculars with Kendall?

Ethan: All you have left is your proverbial stick in your hand.

J.R.: You still doubt my motives. Does 87-year-old scotch mean nothing?

Ethan: You've come over here acting all buddy-buddy, because you want me to stop my systematic destruction of Chandler Enterprises.

J.R.: All right, all right. You got me. Well?

Ethan: Doubtful.

J.R.: What about Kendall?

Ethan: I already told you, she's out of the picture.

J.R.: No, I mean, since you're not going after her, I was wondering if I could have another shot with her.

Aidan: Have fun.

Amanda: Hold up. Ok, no wedding ring, so you're not married.

Aidan: Very perceptive.

Amanda: And my gay-dar didn't go off. Gay men don't kiss girls like that.

Aidan: One keen observation after another. I like it.

Amanda: Usually "Hi, I'm Amanda" is followed by "Hi, I'm --" and this is where you insert your name.

Aidan: I thought we got past the "pleased to meet you" stage, didn't we? I mean, after all, when two people go mouth to mouth, they --

Amanda: That's part of my charm. I don't have a lot of patience for the formal stuff, except when I feel like someone's holding out on me.

Aidan: My name is Aidan.

Amanda: Ah, now we're getting somewhere. It's very nice to meet you, Aidan.

Aidan: And talking of getting somewhere -- I really need to get a couple of miles in before the sun goes down, so --

Amanda: Well, I wouldn't want to keep you from working that body.

Aidan: It was nice to meet you, Amanda.

Amanda: Ouch. What the hell? Ok, Mr. Sexy Shorts, what's up? You got a girlfriend? Engaged? I remind you of your ex, your sister, your mom, or something?

Aidan: I think you're a bit too young to remind me of my mom.

Amanda: What, then?

Aidan: Don't worry, you're charming.

Amanda: Charming? Who the heck wants to be charming? Old ladies are charming.

Aidan: Look, I told you, I need to go for my run. Just two miles. You're welcome to come with me if you want.

Amanda: You mean, run?

Aidan: Yeah.

Amanda: Now, does it look like I'm dressed to run?

Aidan: Why not? But I must warn you, I keep up a pretty good clip.

Amanda: Hmm, I bet you do. Sorry, jogging is not really my exercise of choice. I can think of much better ways to get the heart rate up.

Aidan: I'm sure you can, Amanda. Rain check, then?

Amanda: Ow! I cut my foot on something.

Aidan: You know what? Your tone of voice is still quite not right.

Amanda: No, it's ok, really. You go, get your daily mileage in. I'll just stand here, bleed for a little bit, hop the half mile back to my car. You go ahead. It must be nice to be able to run.

Aidan: I have a first-aid kit in my car.

Amanda: Well, we'll discuss forgiveness over a bottle of antiseptic. You wouldn't happen to have a beer in there, too, would you?

Ethan: You really are a first-class son of a bitch, aren't you, J.R.?

J.R.: Well, what can I say? I strive for perfection.

Ethan: Look, you don't need my permission to go after Kendall. You take your best shot. We're done.

J.R.: Oh, you don't really believe that, do you?

Ethan: Oh, I'm glad to be rid of her.

J.R.: Maybe as a couple. But come on, Ethan. It's time for you to wake up and smell the irony. She is your stepmommy.

Ethan: I'll survive.

J.R.: You really think that Zach and Kendall are going to stop poking at your cage?

Ethan: Let them try. I'll deal with it.

J.R.: Sure you will -- with a little help.

Ethan: I don't need any help.

J.R.: Zach and Kendall are standing at a poker table with a royal flush, waiting for you to go all in. You need my help more than ever.

Ethan: Why? Because you can count cards?

J.R.: I need you to stop messing with Chandler Enterprises.

Ethan: Hmm.

J.R.: And you need my help to fend off Daddy and your new mommy dearest.

Ethan: Hmm. Well, I do have control of Chandler Enterprises. Your stock, by the way, went down four points today.

J.R.: I'm going to get Chandler Enterprises back before you drive it into the ground.

Ethan: Really? How exactly do you plan on doing that, J.R.?

Kendall: Ok, so it's not the most logical plan in the world, but it feels right for me. For the first time in a very long time, I'm sure of what I'm doing. So can you at least be happy for that?

Erica: Well, I'll try. Because you know I just want you to be happy.

Zach: Ahem. Everything okay out here?

Kendall: It's fine.

Zach: I figured you probably had a few things to say to me unless I'm way off base.

Erica: No, actually, you're completely right. I do have something to say.

Kendall: Ok, go easy on him. I was in front of the judge, too.

Zach: Don't worry. Wouldn't be family if we didn't beat up on each other from time to time, right?

Erica: Kendall, would you leave us alone just for a minute?

Kendall: Ok. Watch your claws, Mother. And you, be careful of the edge.

Zach: All right. Lay it on me.

Erica: Ok.

[Erica slaps Zach hard across his face not once, not twice, but three times.]

Ryan: Get out.

Jack: No. Wait. I'm sorry. I am trying to trust that you and Greenlee are going to work this out, but it's not easy.

Ryan: Your interference doesn't help, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, I know that. Erica helped me see that.

Ryan: But you love Greenlee, and that's why you're angry with me.

Jack: Actually, I think I was more angry at your brothers, but since they weren't around to go off on, I --

Ryan: You went after me.

Jack: Yeah. Don't think for a second that I'm not still scared for Greenlee, because I am.

Ryan: Because she's still with me.

Jack: Because you have a lot of things to work out. And I'm not so sure I want her around for that.

Ryan: Well, that's exactly what I was worried about, Jack. You see, you can control your anger, like you just did. I'm not sure that I can. So let me tell you what I've done to make sure I don't inflict that on any child of mine.

Greenlee: If I have to have procreation without recreation, so be it. You're going to help.

Simone: I'll try. First, ok -- have you really, really thought about this whole snatch-the-sperm thing?

Greenlee: Simple.

Simone: Yeah?

Greenlee: We break into the test-tube terrain and bust those bad boys out.

Simone: Ok, first of all, how do we get in? All right? And then how do we find the samples once we're in? I don't think they're kept in the cafeteria freezer next to the push-ups and the Mickey Mouse pops.

Greenlee: Well, we'll check the files. I'm sure they have a list of where everything is stored.

Simone: Right, right. That leads us to question number two -- how do we know which one is Ryan's? Because you said yourself that they are anonymous donors.

Greenlee: If I have to check every single piece of paper before I find it, I will. And while I'm at it, I'll even keep an eye out for something for you, too.

Simone: Ah! Not. Thanks, but I prefer the old-fashioned way. Plus, ok, the insemination itself -- don't even look at me to help you with that one. I failed miserably when I tried to baste my turkey, and even the thought --

Greenlee: Ok, ok, ok, ok. You have a couple points there.

Simone: A couple?

Greenlee: We need to rethink the plan.

Simone: I don't think we have much of a plan to think of.

Greenlee: We have to get it done.

Simone: How are we going to pull this off, Greenlee?

Greenlee: You have to understand what this baby means to me, Simone, and how much it's going to mean to Ryan. We're going to make it happen.

Kendall: I'm interrupting something. The question is, what?

Simone: We'll pick this up later.

Kendall: Greenlee, stop. Wait. I'm sorry, ok? I know I totally screwed things up.

Greenlee: Don't try to talk to me.

Kendall: No, I know I should have told you earlier about Ryan, or I should've just said nothing at all.

Greenlee: You did neither. Look where it got us.

Kendall: Yes, I know. I've trashed my relationships with both of you. That's a habit I'm trying to break. But he loves you, Greenlee, more than anything.

Greenlee: I know.

Kendall: I wish I could help you. I wish that there was something that I could do.

Greenlee: Haven't you done enough already?

Kendall: Ok, listen, I know it's going to take you a while before you can trust me again.

Greenlee: Try this side of never.

Kendall: Fine, ok, but Ryan's never going to change.

Greenlee: Who the hell are you to tell me about my life or my husband?

Kendall: Ok, all right. I deserve what you're dishing out. Bring it on. But maybe it's time for you to move on, just accept what he's done, and adjust.

Greenlee: I'll deal with my own problems without your help.

Kendall: Listen to me. Listen, ok, I know what it's like losing the man that you love, all right? I don't want to see that happen to you.

Greenlee: Ha! Could have fooled me.

Kendall: What Ryan did to you is pretty similar to what I did to Ethan. He has presented you with an impossible situation, with decisions already made. Now, I blew my shot at love. I don't want to see you and Ryan blow it for the both of you.

Greenlee: I told you, I'll deal with my own problems.

Kendall: Greenlee, listen to me. It's not too late for the two of you, ok? Just let the whole baby thing go.

Greenlee: Did you really leave me a choice?

Kendall: Greenlee, please. Please, can you ever forgive me?

Zach: I'd hate to see your left hook.

Erica: When are you divorcing Kendall?

Zach: Why on earth would I divorce such a wonderful woman?

Erica: Why on earth would you stay married to her?

Zach: I don't know. Make things more interesting for you?

Erica: You have your own motive. You always do.

Zach: She's the only one who understands how I feel about my son. Makes it very easy to have her around.

Erica: And do you think that I am just going to stand by while you use my daughter in your sick game with Ethan?

Zach: I will stay married to Kendall as long as she wants to stay married to me. Until then, I'll play by her rules. I got her into this, and I will see her through.

Erica: Oh, that's a load of garbage. You're Zach Slater. You're no hero in any way, shape, or form. You are selfish, and you always have selfish motives attached. I want to know what it is with my daughter.

Zach: It seems to me you're just going to have to stay tuned to find out.

Ethan: You would feed me to my father if you thought it would help you get your precious Chandler Enterprises back.

J.R.: I understand, Ethan. I wouldn't trust me, either. So allow me to prove my sincerity.

Ethan: I'm all ears.

J.R.: I'll get close enough to Kendall and Zach to feed you information of any incoming attacks.

Ethan: Oh, I'm quite sure that you'd like to get as close as you can to Kendall.

J.R.: Just stop trashing Chandler Enterprises as long as I'm a valuable spy in an enemy camp.

Ethan: Ok, you spy. I'll decide how valuable your information is, and we will see how it helps Chandler Enterprises fare.

J.R.: Well, with the way my luck's been going, I'll take that as a victory.

Ethan: Ahem. You forgot something.

J.R.: No, you keep the scotch. You'll need it.

Ethan: Your girls. Candy, Brandy.

J.R.: Oh, yes.

[J.R. hands Ethan a piece of paper with a phone number on it.]

J.R.: Have fun.

Amanda: You involved with somebody? That it?

Aidan: That's about it.

Amanda: Serious?

Aidan: Maybe.

Amanda: Ooh, there's hope for me then.

Aidan: How do you figure?

Amanda: Girlfriends are like speed bumps. They slow you down, but they don't get in the way.

Aidan: You know, I really don't need any more complications right now.

Amanda: Who said I was complicated? What's up, I'm not your type?

Aidan: I'm sure you're anybody's type.

Amanda: I'll take that as a compliment.

Aidan: You should. I meant it as a compliment. You're done. All better.

Amanda: I could make you forget all those complications in your life.

Aidan: Oh, I'm sure you could make man forget God, Queen, and country.

Amanda: Hmm. Close your eyes and think of the Queen if it makes you feel better.

Aidan: You know, the problem is that type of amnesia is always temporary. When you come back to your senses, life's gotten a whole lot messier than it was already.

Amanda: Hmm. Think about the fun you'd have getting there.

Jack: Wow. Well, Ryan, I must say I do understand why you did what you did, and I applaud the fact that you identified a problem and took steps.

Ryan: I could never subject that kind of rage on a child.

Jack: Yeah, I had some concerns about it, too, myself. I don't think they were the same as yours, though. I was just thinking it would be a lot easier for Greenlee to get out of this marriage if there were no children.

Ryan: Well, you don't have to worry about your daughter, Jack. Because if that rage and that anger bears its twisted head, I will be out of here, and I will never come back.

[Turning around, Ryan and Jack are surprised to see Greenlee standing there listening.]

Erica: What are you planning with my daughter?

Zach: Some activities should stay between husband and wife.

Erica: You don't for one minute think that I'm going to stand by and watch you ruin my daughter?

Zach: What about you? Any sign of marital bliss? How was the honeymoon? Um, it's number ten, right? So what do you think? Is this the one, or did you put a time limit on this one, as well?

Erica: Don't you think that Kendall has been through enough, thanks to your son?

Zach: Weddings are just a great way to bring families together, right?

Erica: Have you told the widow Maria yet? Did you get your revenge on her, too? Did you rub her face in it?

Zach: That's enough.

Erica: What a shame you married your way out of having the love of your life.

Zach: You just never know when to stop, do you?

Erica: And did Maria react the way you wanted her to? Did she cry? Did she plead with you to come back to her?

Zach: You're walking a fine line. You sure you want to keep walking it?

Erica: I warned you I could be dangerous. You're about to find out exactly how dangerous.

Greenlee: What are you doing here? I thought you weren't going to interfere again.

Ryan: Greenlee, it's ok.

Greenlee: No, like hell it is.

Jack: It won't happen again.

Greenlee: Why can't you let me run my own life?

Jack: Because I care about you. I was just doing what I thought was best.

Greenlee: Then don't sneak in here and bash my husband behind my back.

Ryan: Your dad and I just worked a few things out.

Greenlee: Did you forge my signature on the divorce papers?

Jack: No. Greenlee, I'm trying. It's not easy, but I'm trying.

Greenlee: Yeah, right.

Jack: Look, I love you. I want to make sure that things are right between us again.

Kendall: Any wounds that need stitches?

Zach: She loves you.

Kendall: She'll go after you.

Zach: I know.

Kendall: She won't quit.

Zach: Everyone gets tired eventually.

Kendall: No one understands what we've done.

Zach: It's a good thing we do.

Kendall: Do we?

Aidan: You sure you're going to be all right walking back to your car?

Amanda: You a doctor or something?

Aidan: I've picked up a couple of things on the job.

Amanda: Well, you sure do have a way with your hands.

Aidan: You know, it's been unique, Amanda. You're very entertaining.

Amanda: The pleasure was all mine.

Aidan: I got to go.

Amanda: You look as good going as you do coming.

J.R.: You double-dealing bitch.

Simone: Well, hello, Mr. Tall, handsome, and brooding. Special delivery.

Ethan: To what do I owe this honor?

Simone: Oh --

Ethan: Ah.

Simone: Here.

Ethan: You shouldn't have.

Simone: They're bowling shoes. Oh, don't tell me you've never been bowling.

Ethan: Uh -- no. No, no, I haven't.

Simone: Oh, this is great! This will be classic. There's nothing funnier than the first-time bowler -- or someone who's been drinking a lot when they're bowling. So, anyways, come on, come on. We'll do both. Up, up, up!

Ethan: No, I'm so -- I don't think this is such --

Simone: No. Please?

Ethan: I really don't think it's such a good idea.

Simone: Oh, come on, I'll get to kick your British booty in a game of finesse, and I'll feel all sorry about it. I'll have to come up with some clever, creative way to make it up to you. Yes. And then you will take me out to dinner, and we'll laugh all night about how silly we've been. And you'll have so much fun, more than you've had in a very long time.

Ethan: That sounds quite wonderful.

Simone: Good. And who knows where that will lead us?

Zach: I told your mother that nothing would change unless you wanted it.

Kendall: Why? I mean -- I mean, I know why I want to stay married to you. It makes sense in my own messed-up, Kendall-esque sort of way. But I still don't get you.

Zach: What's to get?

Kendall: Well, once you get your casinos back with my name on the licenses, we could just make a simple business deal between us. So why do you want to stay married to me?

[Erica pounds on Wildwind’s front door.]

Erica: Open this door, Maria! Do you hear me? This is all your fault, and you are going to fix it now!

Ryan: Well, you got here just in time. Dinner's been delivered.

Greenlee: Good thing God created take-out. I've had a crazy day.

Ryan: And I got the -- the wine chilling.

Greenlee: What's this for?

Ryan: Oh, that? That's -- that's just -- it's for an old garage. I just was cleaning out a drawer. Um, so did you get to see the doctor?

Greenlee: I tried to make an appointment, but his schedule is a little frozen right now.

Ryan: Oh. So when can he fit you in?

Greenlee: Not soon enough. But I went over to Fusion and did a little work. Simone and I are working on something pretty exciting.

Ryan: Great. Fill me in.

Greenlee: I want it to be a surprise.

Ryan: Ok. Then let's have a toast to -- to our future, to a new start, and to a marriage full of new surprises.

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

Erica (to Maria): Are you still going to let Edmund come between you and Zach?

Kendall (to Zach): Are you staying married to me to avoid Maria?

J.R.: Where is this killer move you were talking about?

Amanda: Stop growling, and I'll tell you.

Tad: You found a print?

Aidan: A real beauty. We're ready to go.
