Greenlee: My baby is a monster just like his father. That's what you think, so go ahead, say it. Tell me how wrong I was to make this baby.

Jack: No. Don't do this. You didn't bring me in here for this. Just let me be here to help, please?

Greenlee: What, it's no fun to gloat to a crying widow? Here. Is that better? Tell me what you think of him. Horrible things, ugly things. You never wanted me and Ryan together. Well, now we're apart. Is that what you want for my baby? You want my baby in the water, too?

Erica: Stop it, Greenlee! Stop!

[Helicopter flies as rescuers rappel down the cliff toward Ryan.]

Man: Down here! Give me some light!

Second man: You got him? Tell me you got him.

[Snooping through Tad's Wildwind file, Sam finds its security entry code: *0854# and stashes in his pocket.]

Sam: Aha. Grey pulls it out seconds before the buzzer.

[Phone rings]

Lily: Hello.

Sam: Hey, it's me.

Lily: Sam.

Sam: Lily, I want to see you.

Lily: I want to see you, too.

Sam: There's only one way to do it. You got to break your dad's rules. I know it's a risk, but I'm willing to take it. Your call.

Lily: I want to see you, even if it means breaking some rules.

Sam: How about Wildwind? Can you get away now?

Lily: There's no one to get away from. I'll meet you there.

Sam: Hey. Oh, great timing, but I got to go.

Tad: Or we could go for plan B, which is where you sit down, and we have a little talk. Show of hands for plan B?

[Snooping through Tad's Wildwind file, Sam finds its security entry code: *0854#]

Lily: I'm really busy and leaving and don't have time to talk to you right now.

Aidan: I'm sorry, Lily, but I can't let you go.

Kendall: We're supposed to watch her suffer like it's ok? Like this is ok? Like she ever did anything to deserve this?

Simone: You just told her that it wasn't her fault, and it wasn't. It's just --

Kendall: What? What? What is it? What, it's fate? It's destiny? It's the way things are supposed to be? No. No. I know it's not Greenlee's fault. Ryan is dead. He's dead. It's Ryan's fault. It's his fault. What did she ever do but give him love and trust? I mean, she gave him everything, everything, and what did he give her? That. He gave her that. Why? Why? Because he's a guy, he's a man, and you know what they do? They can't let you love them, and they can't let you hope. They have to rip your heart out and grind it into dust. What is wrong with you? You guys are all the same. Why do you have to hurt us.

Greenlee: Want to play step-monster with me, Erica? Let me guess -- you can relate. You even have a new beginning already picked out for me.

Erica: You can't push me away. I'm here whether you want me or not.

[Ryan hides from rescuers searching for him amidst the rocks.]

Man: What is it, already? Do you have him?

Second Man: Well, I thought I saw -- nothing. Hey, what about over there?

Zach: Now, how the hell did you survive that fall? Your wife's going to be happy she's no longer widow.

Ryan: If you tell Greenlee that I'm alive, I will kill you.

Zach: You should be a dead man.

Ryan: I am a dead man. You walk away. You never saw me.

Zach: Then what? Miss my chance at playing hero? You know what this would do for my image, raising you from the dead like that?

Ryan: What do you want?

Zach: I was the one who told your wife that this is no longer a rescue effort, this is a recovery. And you should have seen the look in her eyes -- blank. And it would have broken your heart, if you had one.

Ryan: You don't talk about her.

Zach: Nah. Imagine it. You can walk back and there she is. She's going to see it's all a mistake -- "My husband's alive and well and living in Pine Valley," and you can take her in your arms and put that light back in her eyes. And you can stop the grief. That's what a husband does. He stops grief.

Ryan: You shut up!

Zach: You did this on purpose!

Kendall: Please, please tell me. Please, I am dying to know. Is it hard-wired into your manly chromosomes, the default excuse -- "Daddy was a jerk, so I better ditch the woman who loves me and smash her heart into dust"?

Simone: Are we still talking about Greenlee, or have we switched to you?

Kendall: It was bad enough that I had to watch Ryan ride into the night knowing it was my fault. At least I knew he was alive, and I knew that someday he would come back. Greenlee, she had to watch him, she had to watch Ryan on that cliff, and I don't understand. How can he do that to her?

Ethan: You loved Ryan, and he's gone, and it guts you, not just Greenlee.

Kendall: No, no, love is a joke. It's a joke. It's a lie that we tell ourselves when the nights get too cold and the days too lonely. I'd be happy -- if I had love, I'd be happy, and I'd be warm, and I'd be safe.

Simone: But it is true. Everyone knows it. It's why love exists. Marriage, babies -- it's all about love.

Kendall: I wanted Greenlee to be right. I wanted faith and love and trust to be enough. I mean, she took -- she took that leap that I could never, ever take, and she did it over and over again, only this time she did the biggest one -- a baby. She gave him a baby. And Ryan was supposed to just hold her in his arms, and he was supposed to love her. He was supposed to break into a smile that only Ryan could break in to, like he had the whole world, because that's what she gave him. She gave him the whole world. The three of them -- they were supposed to live happily ever after. What, you think that love makes you warm and happy and safe? Why don't you go inside right now and tell Greenlee? I dare you.

Greenlee: You want to parent me, or you want to tell me what a spoiled brat I am, how this is what happens when you expect too much, when you want too much?

Erica: You're in pain, and it's killing us. You need your family.

Greenlee: Ryan is my family, Ryan and --

Jack: All right, all right, look, we don't even have to talk about this. Just let me --

Greenlee: What, you want to wipe my tears, rock me to sleep and keep your "I told you sos" to yourself? You don't get to play Daddy with me anymore.

Jack: I never really thought of it as a game, Greenlee. Now, however angry you are, whatever you think I've done to you, I'm still your father, and that will never change.

Greenlee: It did, the second you decided that Ryan was bad for me. Come on, tell me again how sick he is -- was. Nothing? You got nothing.

Jack: I really would like to take you in my arms and rock you and tell you that it's all going to be ok, but I know I can't do that right now. Greenlee, if you have something you want to let out, I'll listen. You're my daughter. And the child you carry --

Greenlee: Ryan's child, child of the man you hated -- this is my family now, not you.

Lily: I didn't schedule time to talk to you today.

Aidan: Well, Jack called. There's been an emergency. He wanted me to come check up on you.

Lily: What emergency?

Aidan: He said he'd tell you all about it when he saw you himself.

Lily: Then he will. And you checked in, so now you can go.

Aidan: So have you read any more mystery novels lately, Lily? Any more Dack Masters? In fact, why don't we open up a packet of popcorn, and we can talk about a case.

Lily: No, I'm not hungry, and I don't have time to talk to you right now.

Aidan: What, is there somewhere where you need to be?

Lily: Yes, and now I'm late.

Aidan: Well, you better call and reschedule, because Jack wants you to stay put.

Lily: Did he say that?

Aidan: Not exactly, but I'm sure about this one.

Lily: You're not in charge. Now I'm late. You've made me late. I'm all off my schedule now.

Aidan: Lily, I'm sorry, but I can't let you go anywhere tonight.

Lily: You can't keep me here. I won't stay.

Aidan: Lily, it'll be ok.

Lily: No, it won't. I don't like you right now.

Aidan: Well, right now I like you. And if you take a minute, you'll understand.

Lily: No. No more talking. No more talking with you.

Aidan: Lily, it's going to be ok, and if you want me to count with you, I'll count with you.

Lily: No. No more talking! Don't come near me!

Aidan: Ah -- oh. Nice one, Devane.

[To get away from him, Lily kicks Aidan in the shin.]

Tad: By all means, feel free to whip out the old cell, call whoever it is, and tell them you'll be along soon. And I'm sure whatever's going on in your busy schedule, you can work me in a few minutes.

Sam: This is me laughing my butt off. Now, we launched into this whole "get to know the Martins" thing how long ago? Weeks? Let's see. I have hung out with Joe and Ruth and Brooke. But you? Oh, was it fun? Did I miss it? Because I don't remember.

Tad: You're right. I suck. I'm trying to fix that.

Sam: Well, I'll pencil you in for next Saturday. You can tell me how to put more spin on my knuckleball or something. Are we good?

Tad: Bravo. Author, author. You know, I forgot how much fun this whole teenage angst thing can be.

Sam: Well, I'm glad you got your jollies. Got to go.

Tad: Nope. You may not know it to look at me, but way back when the world was cooling, I invented smart-ass. I've actually got a trademark, gives me 50 cents anytime anybody like you opens their mouth. And as far as making me feel like dirt, the dork that ignored you for the last couple weeks -- I stand guilty as charged, I'm already there, so don't waste your time. The good news is you can't possibly make me feel worse, because somewhere during my journey, I misplaced the gene that factors in guilt.

Sam: You lost me at "dork." Ok, how about we just move this along, and you tell me what you want?

Tad: To apologize to you. I messed up with you. I have a life, and it got kind of screwy.

Sam: Hey, it happens to everybody.

Tad: Ah. See that? That's what they call a segue, which means there's something going on in your life, so why don't we talk about it?

Sam: Well, short version -- life is fine. Ok, you're off the hook. Got to go.

[Sam groans]

Tad: You are going to tell me what's going on in your life, right after you tell me what the hell you're doing in my office.

[Helicopter flies]

Ryan: Look, I -- I was as good as dead when I rode over the cliff. There is no reason that that should change now.

Zach: Yeah? What about your wife, the woman that adores you? Although you raised your hand to her. What is wrong with you? Are you that stupid? You can't let an incredible woman love you? If you've lost interest with her, then let her go, but don't do this.

Ryan: I loved Greenlee. I would never --

Zach: Never what? You'd never leave her? Hey, you see the irony in this, right?

Ryan: I would never want her to suffer, but she suffers less like this.

Man: Mr. Slater? Hey, you? You find anything?

Zach: Yes, I have.

Ethan: Love is pointless and hopeless? You're right.

Kendall: Ok, having you back me up doesn't make me feel better.

Ethan: It should, because I know how you feel.

Simone: You're not serious?

Ethan: Love is a leap off a building, only you think that you can fly. There's nowhere to go but down.

Simone: But what about -- what about the rush, you know, the euphoric feeling like you can do anything? I mean, you can't tell me it's not worth it.

Kendall: Yeah, until you go splatter, smashed beyond recognition.

Simone: Yes, but we're supposed to try, try to love and fail and go splat, and then we pick ourselves up, and we try again. You know that. You both know that. If we don't reach out, spread our wings, close our eyes, and try like hell, then we'll never have anything worth having.

Kendall: Greenlee had blind faith, but she fell. She's broken. And I don't know. Ryan pushed her, or he wasn't there to catch her, either way. You want to listen at that door again? You want to listen to her cry some more? How did Greenlee go wrong? How did she blow it? What didn't she do? She didn't flap her wings hard enough? She didn't pray hard enough?

Simone: Yeah.

Kendall: No, no, Greenlee did everything right, and her husband is in the ocean. Ok? So that's the reality of it. So just spare me the lecture about the magic of love.

Greenlee: Why are you still here?

Jack: Because I'm your child's grandfather, Greenlee, because I want to be with you and your baby, because I love you both. No matter what I thought about Ryan, I know this -- I know that your baby is beautiful and innocent, and I will love him or her with my whole heart.

Erica: Please, Greenlee. We know that you're in pain, and we don't want to make it any worse.

Jack: No, we don't. Please, please, will you let me help you? Will you let me just take care of you?

Greenlee: You tried to take care of me, remember? You told my husband he was dangerous. You helped me lose the man that I thought I'd grow old with. How do I forgive you? How do I even look at you?

Jack: By trying to remember that all I ever wanted was what was best for you.

Greenlee: I had the best, I had Ryan, the man you hated, the man you thought would hurt me.

Jack: Yeah, well, obviously, I had plenty to worry about. You saw what he was capable of. We all saw it. Ryan himself saw it. And by God, if he was here, he would tell you how scared he was, scared to death, because he knew what he'd turn into.

[As a helicopter flies overhead, Ryan silently pleads for Zach not to give him up.]

Zach: I found a burger wrapper, soda cans, and one flip-flop. What the hell do you do with one flip-flop, anyway?

Man: You think this is funny?

Zach: No, not at all. I don't have a sense of humor. Ask anybody.

Man: We got a widow that deserves to know what happened to her husband.

Zach: Yeah, I knew the guy. I think it's overrated.

Man: Well, if you see anything --

Zach: You'll be the first to know. Thank you.

Ryan: You getting a kick out of this?

Zach: It's been a hell of a day, man. So let's see. You think Greenlee's better off without you. I agree 100%. I totally agree with you, but then, now, I have a question for you. If she conceived a baby to save your soul, and now you're leaving her for her own good --

Ryan: I know what Greenlee needs. This is what she needs.

Zach: So let me ask you. What if she loves you and mourns you and waits for you for the rest of her life?

Ryan: Now let me ask you. Any chance in hell I suddenly won't be exactly who I am?

Tad: Well, you obviously came by for something. It's either the petty cash or my completely comprehensive and annotated collection of gentleman's literature.

Sam: I came by to see if you wanted a burrito.

Tad: What? Is that some kind of slang for giving somebody a hard time, i.e., "I really whipped the burrito on old Thaddeus"?

Sam: No. Ruth said you would buy dinner.

Tad: You mean a real burrito?

Sam: Yeah.

Tad: Oh, Mom told you that I'm a sucker for rice and beans, huh?

Sam: Ok, Tad, that sound is my stomach growling. Could we drag this out any longer?

Tad: You have no idea. When it comes to money, I learned it from my father. Sooner or later, you are going to talk to me.

Sam: Can't wait. Please. Thank you. Whatever you want.

Tad: Samuel? I like a lot of hot sauce.

Sam: Ok.

[After Sam leaves, Tad sits at his desk and is surprised by a kiss on the head from Amanda.]

Aidan: Yes, it's been a long time. I don't think anyone can help Ryan now.

Reggie: Is my dad with Greenlee? I mean, is she -- I know she's not ok, but is she ok? She's not going to do anything crazy --

Aidan: No, your father's looking after her.

Reggie: There's people around her? Should I go and try to, you know, help her --

Aidan: No, Reggie, I think it's best that you stay here with Lily.

Reggie: And Lily. She was so psyched that her family kept growing. I mean, you didn't tell her, did you?

Aidan: No, your father wants to make sure that, you know, Lily's ready, ease her into it.

Reggie: Yeah, it's better him than me. Aidan, we're cool here. I mean, if you need to go and do something --

Aidan: Lily might not come out until the morning. I told her to stay put.

Reggie: How is it that some people, they just can't catch a break? You know, it's like one thing right after another.

Aidan: You know, Reggie, you keep asking yourself that question and expect an answer, you're going to make yourself crazy.

Ryan: I mean, you're the man, you're the bank. What are the odds that I pull out of this, I go back to my wife, and I am the man she deserves?

Zach: They're not good. You're going to go to bed you, wake up you, and hate yourself for the rest of your life.

Ryan: Yes, I know that, and you know that. But Greenlee -- she has to know where she's going to sit, and she's going to wait and she's going to hope. I mean, she went to a fertility clinic to prove her point. If I let her hope, if I let her sit around and think that if she just tries hard enough -- would you wish that life on her? I had to take the choice out of her hands. She would never have walked away.

Zach: Well, she can't see that dark, twisted place inside you.

Ryan: But you can see it just fine.

Zach: I know what to look for.

Ryan: You hated your dad enough to die, I hated mine enough to want to kill him, and here we are -- Alexander Cambias, Sr., and Patrick Lavery.

Zach: We are what our fathers made us.

Ryan: Yes, we are.

Zach: There is one difference. My father didn't have a wife like Greenlee. Neither did yours.

Ryan: And now neither do I.

Zach: What if we're wrong? What if Greenlee knows more than we know? What if she can save you?

Ryan: Greenlee deserves a life that I cannot give her.

Zach: What about the baby?

Ryan: I have no baby.

Zach: It doesn't matter how many times you say it, it still doesn't make it true.

Ryan: I said no kids. I meant no kids.

Zach: Things happen. Babies are born. People deal with it.

Ryan: And what about your 6'5" happy surprise? How'd that work for you?

Zach: Look at that. Cold water, jagged rocks, incredible riptide, yet here you are. Did it ever occur to you that this may not be your time to die?

Greenlee: Stupid, blind, crazy. Isn't that what you think of me? The idiot who loved Ryan, who created a life to save him.

Jack: No, just listen to me, will you --

Greenlee: No, don't touch me!

Jack: Just listen to me, listen. This is not your fault, Greenlee. And I'm not here to judge you or to blame you, and I don't want to see you suffer. You loved Ryan with all your heart, and you gave him the gift of a lifetime. And you did not cause this, and you don't deserve this. I'm so sorry. I am so, so sorry.

[Having finally broken through to her, Jack holds Greenlee as she weeps.]

Kendall: Simone, stop it. Please just stop. I'm done with love. How is she?

Erica: Well, she's hurt.

Simone: Well, you know what? If you need us -- well, we're going to go.

Erica: And how about you, Kendall? Honey, how are you?

Kendall: I'm fine. I'm great. I'm a rock.

Erica: Yeah. I know that look. You don't know whether to blow up the world or cry and never stop.

Ryan: You know, good men die every day. And yet here I am, a full-blown Lavery, alive and well. Life's a bitch, and then you don't die.

Zach: Well, this is your second chance right there for the taking. You can walk off this ledge into a VIP suite with your friends and your family, take your wife in your arms, and tell her you love her.

Ryan: And that won't last, and you know it, and I know it, so why the games?

Zach: Dead men very rarely get a second shot at life. It's worth some consideration.

Ryan: Greenlee destroyed, the child in her with me around, destined, what kind of life? If Greenlee even thinks that I'm alive, she will take it as a cosmic sign that I can be saved.

Zach: So you're dead?

Ryan: Yes, I'm dead. I'm the last Lavery, it ends here, and you're not invited to the funeral, so go, get out. Just keep your mouth shut.

Zach: No problem. What about the rescue workers and the reporters and the helicopters? When they find you -- and they will -- do you think they'll buy your story, you know, "For the sake of my wife"? You think they'll just keep it to themselves? Probably not. You want to be dead, let's do it the right way.

Lily: Aidan slowed me down, but he couldn't stop me. I really wanted to come. I had to break some rules.

Sam: Oh, you know what? You and me both.

[Sam uses the security entry code to get into Wildwind’s main house.]

Sam: Aha, we're in.

[When Sam flips the light switch on, nothing happens.]

Sam: Ah. Figures.

Lily: Well, maybe we could light some candles. Candlelight is supposed to be romantic.

Sam: It works for me.

Lily: It is romantic, I think. Not being able to see things clearly is romantic.

Sam: I can see you. That's enough for me.

Lily: Is breaking the rules romantic, too?

Sam: Oh, yeah, it's kind of a kick. You know, the forbidden and all that.

Lily: My dad says that rules are for our protection.

Sam: Oh, who's "our"?

Lily: Kids, people.

Sam: So someone's going to tell you where you can go, when you can do it? That's a load. You want to be 30 years old, living by Daddy Jack's rules? Where you can go, who you can see, what you can do with them?

Lily: I don't know. I haven't thought about being 30 before. You've thought a lot about rules, haven't you?

Sam: Yeah, maybe a little too much. You know what? If it freaks you out to be here, I can take you home.

Lily: No, I don't want to go home.

Sam: I don't want you to.

Lily: You're not worried about breaking the rules?

Sam: We're teenagers. It's in the job description, you know, right next to learning from our mistakes. How are we supposed to be adults if we can't make our own decisions?

Lily: I made my own decision about coming here tonight, like other kids our age do.

Sam: Yeah, forget about them. You're you, and you're great. Hmm. It only took my family's total meltdown to get us some alone time in my own house. Hey, why don't we check things out, see what they left for us to get into?

Tad: Did I miss the part where I say "Hey, gorgeous, slip me some sugar"?

Amanda: "Slip me some sugar"?

Tad: Before your time. Don't get me wrong. You made my week, but what exactly kind of kiss was that? "Hey, Uncle Tad, I'm glad you and Dad are such good friends" or "I'm an unemployed young person, give me 20 bucks"?

Amanda: It was the mistaken identity kind. I thought you were Aidan.

Tad: And you and Aidan are on a first-lip basis?

Amanda: Actually, it was a thank-you, because of my young person unemployed status, but Aidan and I had a long talk about a job for me here.

Tad: He didn't mention it to me.

Amanda: Seriously?

Tad: Yeah.

Amanda: I'm so bummed. I mean, it was practically a done deal.

Tad: Well, don't get me wrong. I mean, sweetheart, you'd be a valuable asset to any establishment, but what can you do that we need?

Amanda: Well, I can trail a subject to the ladies' room. Can you do that?

Tad: Yeah, wig's in the drawer. I'm so ugly as a woman, nobody would notice or care.

Amanda: I have keen powers of observation.

Tad: Amanda, I have brown hair, Aidan has black hair. Maybe they're not that keen after all.

Sam: Look at this place. It's like we never even existed.

Lily: Maybe we could take the sheets off the furniture or light some more candles. That might make it look more like before.

Sam: You know, if it were the other way around, if my dad were still alive -- this is his house. It's our house. Doesn't anyone care?

Lily: I care.

Sam: Not even a picture left. Nothing. All of us just erased. How did things get so screwed up?

Lily: It's usually because someone does something bad. Bad things happen to my family, too, but good things happen, also, and I try to remember those more.

Sam: Yeah, you're right, you're right, you're right. You're totally right. Ok, enough of that. Let's forget about the sheets and the empty fridge. We have something way better.

Lily: I don't know what that is.

Sam: Ah. We have tunes. Now, I know the music freaked you out last time, but I got some new stuff, and if it doesn't work, just let me know, and I'll toss it out the window.

Lily: You might not be able to get it back in the dark.

Sam: Well, if you don't like it, I don't want it back.

Singer: My life's been a question

Lily: So far it seems ok.

Sam: Ok enough to dance?

Lily: The separate kind or the touching kind?

Sam: Well, it's up to you, but I vote for number two.

Lily: I think I'd like to try the touching kind.

Simone: You know, I never get to be the best friend. No matter how much I care about Greenlee, I'm always somehow in the background. But this time she gave me a chance to step up and help her with this crazy, amazing thing. She had faith, so I had faith. I wanted to help her.

Ethan: And you did.

Simone: Oh --

Ethan: Ok, listen, you've been a wonderful friend to Greenlee through all of this. Now, why don't you get some air or some food? Anything you want. You helped Greenlee. Let me help you.

Simone: Did I help her, Ethan? Did I? If I was a worse friend or a better friend or some other kind of friend, would she not be with her husband right now?

Ethan: What you did for Greenlee was incredible. You believed in your friend and in love.

Simone: Yeah, but you think love equals splat.

Ethan: I wish I didn't. I wish I had what you have, you know, this hope and excitement and joy for life.

Simone: But I was wrong. So maybe next time, well, you know, I'll know better. I'll be more realistic like Kendall.

Ethan: Don't. Don't do that, Simone. Don't let go of that part of you. It's who you are. And I'd miss you.

Kendall: You can't really know what's going on inside of me right now.

Erica: Kendall, I'm your mother. Between total destruction and weeping endlessly, I know which one you'll choose.

Kendall: No, Mother, I want to break something right now. I want to hurt someone. Do you understand me? Ryan is gone, and Greenlee is alone, and someone has to pay.

Erica: Ryan was a wonderful man. Ryan saved me. He saved all of us at one time.

Kendall: Well, Greenlee tried to save him, too. Why wouldn't she just let him? I don't understand. I mean, it actually used to make me crazy to see the two of them together.

Erica: You loved him.

Kendall: Yes, but Greenlee loved him, too. Don't you get that? She loved him. She loved him in a way that I never could. They were perfect for each other. Ryan and I -- we were too much alike, we were too stubborn. But Greenlee and Ryan, it was different, Mother. I wanted him to be happy. I wanted them both to be happy. I don't understand. I don't understand a world without Ryan Lavery, and I don't want to.

Erica: No, no, neither do I. Neither do I.

Ryan: This is your solution, a shack?

Zach: Yes. You don't want to be heard or seen until you get out of here. This is a safe place.

Ryan: All right, I'll hang here. So what are we talking about? Five minutes? Half-hour? What?

Zach: It may take a little longer than that.

Ryan: I don't trust you.

Zach: If you don't trust me, there's the door. But I do know a few things about being dead.

Ryan: You rat me out, you'll be dead again.

[Zach leaves, placing a padlock on the shack door.]

Ryan: You locking this? Slater, you locking this?

Amanda: I knew you weren't Aidan when I kissed you, but it was just a friendly peck. Nice cologne, by the way. Subtle.

Tad: It's not cologne. It's mousse.

[Amanda laughs]

Tad: I guess you're not bad in that kind of, you know, "air conditioner salesman in Alaska" way.

Amanda: That's what I'm saying. My credentials are just screaming "double agent super-sleuth."

Tad: Either that or they're screaming "will file your paperwork between classes at Pine Valley U."

Amanda: You train me, I will be the best.

Tad: Sweetheart, I've known you since you were a kid. I'm not going to lie to you. The only perks we got around here are bad coffee, pinball, and pool. You're so good-looking. Go get a job at Lacey’s. You get the employee discount.

Amanda: I have enough miniskirts. Please. Aidan said I was in if you gave the thumbs-up. No?

Tad: Don't do that thing with your mouth.

[Amanda giggles]

Tad: Ok, you're hired.

Amanda: Yes! Awesome! Thank you.
