Hannah: You should've knocked.
Zach: I did knock. What's wrong?
Hannah: It's not a good time.
Zach: I know.
Hannah: Please? Just -- just go.
Zach: What's going on with you? First you resign from Cambias, and now this -- what is it?
[Hannah holds up Spike's little shirt]
Zach: I don't understand.
Hannah: Your brilliant barracuda executive stole the keys to your condo and broke in.
Hannah: For this. For your son's clothes, his toys. I just -- I wanted to look at them, touch them, smell them. Look, I know -- I know it's crazy -- believe me, I know. I'm in trouble, and you're the only one who can help me.
[Music plays at the Roadside bar]
Krystal: Tad, stop it!
Krystal: Ok, ok, ok, ok.
Tad: Come on, you got to lighten up. It's high time, you know, we dust off a little talcum powder, right? Kick back, relax.
Krystal: Thank you for the flowers.
Tad: Oh, don't thank me, thank the Snyders -- they came from their backyard. They'll never miss them. Relax, stay calm. Oh, look -- our table's ready. Come on, it's right next to the dance floor. You know what they say in France -- "let's partay."
[Tad laughs as Krystal thinks of Adam]
Singer: Thinking 'bout the way she walked out on me
Singer: She looked like an angel
Tad: Is something wrong?
Krystal: No. No, it is a good night for good times.
Erica: Two years ago it was the wedding of the decade. And now it's the divorce of the millennium. Today's a rocky road for many divorced couples out there. But I want those of you who are out there who want to get an amicable, new divorce to know that that is possible, and you can go through it with kindness and class and actually enjoy yourselves.
Jack: You bet. Happy anniversary, sweetheart.
[Shutter clicks as Jack kisses Erica]
Greenlee: They say it's better to have loved and lost than blah, blah, blah, blah -- what a load of bull. Losing's never better, but at least I don't have to do it alone -- the gang's all here!
Ryan: Come on, Annie, let's get out of here.
Greenlee: Oh, no, you can't leave -- we're the guests of honor. Another round of drinks, beefcake. Welcome home to me, and great, big props for the lovebirds. We just came back from this marvelous Caribbean vacation. Sun, surf, divorce -- doesn't get any better.
Ryan: Ok, Greenlee, party is over.
Greenlee: Oh, no, I like it up here -- looking down on everyone?
Greenlee: You always said you'd be my safety net. Too bad nets are more holes than rope.
Kendall: Are you done? People came here for drinks and to enjoy music, not a floorshow.
Josh: Maybe you should leave, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Well, you really scored with this cute brother, all macho and protective. Too bad you're a little slow. I own this place, Kendall's brother. I don't leave until I want to. So, where are those drinks? Boss lady's trying to throw a fiesta.
Amanda: Hey, boss lady, you want some help putting her in her place?
Babe: I'm not exactly boss lady anymore.
Babe: All of the shares of Fusion that Greenlee gave me -- she's -- she took them back.
Amanda: What -- can she do that?
Babe: I knew that she could, I just hoped that she wouldn't, but -- look, can you not tell anyone that? Don't worry, I'll deal.
Amanda: No --
Josh: Maybe you want to grab a drink someplace else.
Greenlee: Another toast! To love -- and forgiveness.
Reporter: Mr. Montgomery?
Reporter: How long will you put up with the cameras?
Jack: What cameras?
Reporter: Is it scripted or is it real?
Erica: Oh, believe me, this is as real as it gets.
Reporter: And what do you think of the huge pledge to the Miranda Center?
Jack: What pledge is that?
Pam: I meant to tell you -- somebody put a million dollars into an escrow account. The money will be donated to the Miranda Foundation the second the divorce is final. Somebody really wants you both single again.
Tad: Here you go. [As Curly] "Hey, viola, a little ambience."
Krystal: That's beer.
Tad: [Normal voice] Yeah, I know. It's probably the only drink we're going to get around here. We've been here for 10 minutes. Hey, bartender!
Man: Get in line, pal.
Krystal: Whoo -- tough crowd.
Tad: I'll say. We used to go out -- he's always been like that. It's a lousy table, too. Hang on a second. Ah -- good as new. Damn.
Krystal: Look, you know what? Let's -- let's just call it a night. Let's go check on the baby, Tad.
Tad: Look, you are going to live through this, I promise you. You cannot get a better babysitter than Ruth Martin. She's got skills she hasn't even thought about using yet, ok? She's got eagle eyes, ears like radar stations. She'll make damn sure Little A won't find out whether or not Jenny can bounce --
Krystal: Oh --
Tad: Or whether or not she's easy to flush.
Krystal: Oh --
Tad: Maybe just a little kiddie Jacuzzi, you know?
Krystal: What are you trying to do, scare me to death?
Tad: No -- honey, I'm trying to get you to smile. You remember. Yeah, see? Just like that. That's what I was after. You know what they say -- we deserve the best. Come on.
Opal: Oh, there they are.
Krystal: And together we can always get it.
Opal: Hey there, you two!
Opal: How are you? Ooh, good to see you!
Jamie: You look great.
Krystal: Thank you. I --
Joe: Yeah, good to see you up and about.
Krystal: You, too. I didn't know you were all going to be here.
Tad: You didn't get the memo?
Tad: It's in the manual -- when you hang with one Martin, you often get more than you bargained for.
Zach: How can I help you?
Hannah: Give me what I lost.
Zach: You're tired. Don't say something you're going to regret.
Hannah: You know what? My whole life is one big regret.
Zach: Come on. You're a smart, beautiful woman. You're -- successful, you're an executive, you're --
Hannah: Yeah, who goes home to an empty house, an empty life -- no children, no husband.
Zach: You can have all that.
Hannah: Don't patronize me. I came to Pine Valley to make a connection with my son, to hurt Alexander, and to see if you were the boy I cared for -- or the man I should hate.
Hannah: I hurt Alexander, and I'm not sorry. But I didn't change anything. I still feel dead inside. And I don't hate you. When I -- when I look at you, all I see are our son's eyes. I just want what I lost. You wake up every day to a little boy who holds his arms out to you. You get to bathe him, feed him, watch him grow. And you got another one on the way. More little fingers to count, more kisses to give, moments, memories -- I don't have that.
Zach: I'll get you some tea.
Hannah: You know, when you played dead, you got your freedom, you lived your life, and you never, ever looked back. I had to give up my child and --
Zach: Hannah --
Hannah: No, no. The second you blew up that car, my life went with it, my son's!
Zach: I'm sorry.
Hannah: No! You know what? That's just a word. It doesn't mean anything, it changes nothing. When I met your wife, she told me that you blamed yourself for what happened to Ethan and me -- all of it. Well, you damn well should.
Greenlee: You guys, it's not poison, come on. Hmm? Oh, right -- Kendall, you can't. You're with child -- again. But everyone else -- all right, fine, be that way. Fun's really gone out of this town.
Ryan: Let's go. Come on.
Greenlee: To love and forgiveness -- something ley residents really know a lot about.
Kendall's voice: We've seen a lot of men come and go. We've pushed them away, they've left. They've --
Greenlee: Died. It's ok, you can say it.
Kendall: Maybe in the end, this is what we're supposed to end up with.
Greenlee: Ryan would be happy to know that you're here with me.
Kendall: You know how I felt about Ryan. I loved him, and I gave all of that up to watch you two be happy. So if there's anything I can do to keep the love that you had alive, I'm here.
Greenlee: But you said -- you said you couldn't imagine yourself loving someone so much to carry a child.
Kendall: Well, maybe now I can.
Singer: 'Cause life's so cruel
Greenlee: Oh, well, you look great, Babe, hardly changed. Well, I hope you changed a little -- you're not still stealing babies and sleeping around, right?
Josh: Why don't you lay off, Greenlee?
Babe: No, really, it's cool.
Greenlee: Hmm, where was I? Love and forgiveness. Once upon a time, Babe was Bianca Montgomery's best friend -- pinky-swear, "tell each other everything" best friends -- until Babe snatched Bianca's baby, and then you stole your own. Before that, you slept with your husband's brother while your honeymoon sheets were still hot. Prison? Tarred and feathered? An A tattooed on your forehead? None of the above. Forgiven.
Kendall: Ok, Greenlee, maybe you've had enough to drink.
Greenlee: Oh, this from the woman who can't get enough -- from anything or anyone -- especially when it isn't hers. Kendall had a little roll in the sheets with her lover's brother, just to tick him off. You were ticked off, right?
Kendall: All right, Greenlee, you're making a scene. Come on.
Greenlee: And then your husband went to town on Pine Valley's electric grid -- zapped lives forever, and not in a good way. What was the verdict? Forgiven -- hell, she even remarried the loser!
Amanda: Hey, just because you "own" this place doesn't mean you get to go off on everybody.
Greenlee: Ok, this from the etiquette police? Don't let her fool you. This little girl was so desperate for Mommy's love, because she's certifiably insane, she tried to drug a guy into marrying her.
Jonathan: All right, Greenlee, I don't know exactly what your problem is here, but this isn't the place.
Greenlee: Oh, God, and you -- where do I get started -- oh, another drink, please. Murder, mayhem, bombs, kidnapping, and what was the result -- forgiven!
Greenlee: Mr. Dynamite Kiddo himself. I was so happy to be Mrs. Kiddo. I even had our baby names picked out -- until you went and got a vasectomy on the sly. Didn't want to take any chances, right?
Ryan: Greenlee --
Greenlee: No --
Greenlee: It's ok. Isn't he the sweetest? Our wedding was beautiful. Except for a few glitches, Ryan took our vows so seriously, especially the "death do you part." He wanted to part so badly, he drove his bike off a cliff. But when he came back, I forgave him -- everyone did. So, what is my little whoopsy? What is the one thing I've done that no one can forgive me for? I came home. That's it! That's my big crime. And no one can forgive me.
Greenlee: Someone finally going to join me?
Ryan: It's time to go home, Greenlee.
Josh: There's no reason for you to stick around for round two. Want me to get you a ride home, call you a cab?
Babe: I actually drove, but thank you for offering.
Singer: 'Cause I can't stop
Amanda: Hey, what happened to you? You just let Babe walk away? You didn't insist on driving her home, didn't pick her up and muscle her out of here? You just let her go?
Josh: I don't see you drooling over Jonathan Lavery -- what happened to you?
Amanda: Oh. Well, when it's time to move on, you know.
Josh: There you go.
Erica: Well, I mean, no matter who made the donation, the Miranda Center will certainly get the million dollars, because Jack and I will certainly get our divorce. And we're going to do that with kindness and respect and dignity.
Reporter: And love? How about a kiss for the camera?
Erica: Well, obviously, you are a big fan of the show, and that's just great. Will you excuse us, please, because we have an anniversary to celebrate. Excuse me.
Singer: Because I can't stop
Di: Hey. Good thing you're not trying to play Lily here -- it's a pretty bad place to do it.
Ava: Well, it's also pretty bad to be me -- anywhere.
Di: Well, give it a chance, it'll settle down.
Ava: Not so far. Lily's 'rents were outside. I didn't want to make the scene, so I had to mack on some dude in the kitchen to get in the backdoor. That chick looks familiar.
Di: That's Greenlee. Jack's her dad. You've probably seen her picture around the house.
Ava: They look at her the same way they look at me.
Greenlee: "Home"? Where, exactly, would that be? My ex wants me to leave my own bar. "Go home." Pine Valley is my home. I had a life here -- friends, family, a business. Now all I have is a pack of frenemies who can't wait till I'm gone.
Singer: Can't get enough
Greenlee: Isn't that right, Kendall?
Singer: I know you feel it, too
Kendall: Please don't go.
Ryan: I said leave, Kendall.
Kendall: You have to listen to me.
Greenlee: I don't have to do anything.
Kendall: I did this for you.
Ryan: Kendall, I got it. This is between us.
Greenlee: No, it's not.
Kendall: I love you, Greenlee. Please, please let me help you understand. Please don't leave me. You're making this worse on yourself.
Greenlee: Another attempt to fast-track me out of town. Me here -- it's too messy for you -- for all of you. Well, I was here first. You should leave, not me. Hey, Jon? What's a girl got to do to feel welcome in this town -- kill a few people?
Jack: Greenlee -- Greenlee, what's going on here?
Greenlee: Dad, what a surprise!
Jack: Yeah, how about I take you home, huh?
Erica: Listen, what's happened here?
Greenlee: Oh, didn't think so. My stepmother -- soon-to-be ex-stepmother -- we had some good times, didn't we?
Jack: Ok, you know what? Why don't you let us help you, huh?
Greenlee: "Help me." Everybody wants to help me. Remember my wedding? You were all sorts of help -- locked me up in the tower. Oh, wait -- that wasn't to help me. That was to help yourself to the man I loved. Seems to be a lot of that going around. Is anyone else getting the theme here? Well, I'll make it easy for you -- it certainly isn't forgiveness. It sure as hell ain't love. It's not even gang up on Greenlee.
Singer: 'Cause I can't stop
Greenlee: The theme is --
Singer: Thinking about you
Greenlee: I need another drink.
Tad: Now, what does a guy got to do to get a drink around here?
Opal: Oh, I'll take care of that, honeybunch.
Opal: Hey, we got some thirsty folks over here!
Opal: Not bad.
Krystal: That was really good. I can't do that at all.
Bartender: What do you want?
Opal: Well, I'll have a Ramos gin fizz -- no, no, no, I'm going to have a daiquiri, extra fruit, no umbrella.
Krystal: I'm going to have a kir royale, light on the cassis, please.
Bartender: All right.
Joe: Beer, anything -- whatever you got on tap.
Jamie: A vodka tonic.
Tad: A vodka soda with her umbrella. The man has no sense of humor whatever.
Opal: Well, so, tell me -- how is our new little grandbaby?
Krystal: Oh, she is just sweet as pie.
Opal: Oh --
Tad: And beautiful, brilliant, witty --
Opal: Of course.
Jamie: She's half Martin, half Carey -- what would you expect?
Joe: Well, she's a mighty lucky girl to have you two for parents.
Singer: Blinded by love
Tad: What's wrong?
Singer: What is love
Krystal: I want to apologize -- for keeping you from your sister, you from your granddaughter, your daughter. I was wrong. I'm -- I'm sorry.
Singer: When you got the legs for this, too
Opal: We are family now. It's all behind us.
Singer: You've got the legs for this, too
Tad: Mama, by all means, why don't you honor us with a couple versus of "Bad Girls" for old times' sake?
Opal: You know, you better hush up your mouth, or I just might. You know, this family starts brand-new right now.
Joe: Right now -- hear, hear. So tell us, what's my granddaughter been up to?
Tad: Thought you'd never ask. It just so happens I happen to have a couple snapshots right here.
Opal: Oh, goody! Let me see!
Tad: I'll bring them. Look it -- now, look at this one. I love this -- that's her sleeping.
Tad: Isn't she adorable? She looks like an angel.
Joe: Yes, yes.
Tad: That's more sleeping.
Opal: Oh, she's so precious.
Tad: There she's eating -- see that?
Tad: Boy, she got an appetite, that's more sleeping. And look there -- see that? She's got my smile.
Opal: Looks like gas to me.
Krystal: You tell him, Opal.
Tad: That's -- that's just so mean.
Hannah: If it weren't for your dad, we may have still had --
Zach: I couldn't fix what I didn't know about.
Hannah: But when you did know you had a child, you didn't try and fix it. You -- you lied to Ethan, you tortured him. You -- you made him feel unwanted and unworthy and -- you made him hate you. Your son died cursing you. The child that I would've raised with love, the child that would still be here -- you stole that from me. Two lives destroyed -- but you got to live yours! So you owe me! You owe me this child.
Zach: What you're asking for, a child -- that's impossible.
Hannah: I know one child can't replace another. But I need this baby -- your baby. A chance to start over.
Zach: You haven't thought this through.
Hannah: No, I have. I have. I've checked my cycle, timing's perfect. Zach, if you do this for me, I'll leave. No one will ever see me again. No one will ever know. Please? Please give me what I lost.
Jamie: To Jenny.
Krystal: Oh, thank you.
Tad: You do good work.
Babe: Hey, mind if I crash the party?
Krystal: Hey! I'm glad you got the message! Oh!
Babe: Oh! This is just what I needed. Hi.
Opal: What, a bad day?
Babe: Oh, well, nothing a beer and some peanuts won't fix -- and seeing Mama smiling again, feel great.
Krystal: What's going on?
Babe: I'm just tired, that's it.
Jamie: Uh -- you want me to get you a drink, beat someone up?
Jamie: I'm good at both.
Babe: Just that beer would be great.
Singer: She dances the wall
Babe: This is weird, being back here. Oh, even on this side of the bar, it feels like home.
Bartender: There's your damn beer! Now, get out of my face! You know what? I don't make enough to work in this sewer -- hell, I haven't been paid in a month!
Man: Hey, what about my drink?
Bartender: You serve your damn selves.
Krystal: Uh -- maybe we should've gone to --
Krystal: ConFusion -- a little less intense there, at least.
Ryan: Annie, you do not need to hear any more of this. Let's go, let's get out of here.
Greenlee: Oh, way to go, Ryan. You always knew when to make an exit. Word of advice -- hold on to his motorcycle keys. You never know when he's going to pop a wheelie and be gone.
Kendall: All right, that is it, that is it! You are coming with me now!
Greenlee: Ow! You can't grab me like that!
Kendall: Get out here, come on!
Di: Are you all right?
Ava: They really hate that girl.
Di: It's not hate, it's complicated.
Ava: What's complicated? Some people get smiled at, some people don't -- life.
Di: Ava, I've been where you are. That's how I knew you weren't Lily at the wedding -- just the look in your eyes? People didn't slam you or just -- just ignore you. They were just talking to you, looking at you straight in the eye, genuinely smiling at you, right? You didn't want it to end?
Ava: You playing me right now?
Singer: Love is all I need
Di: I pretended to be my sister.
Ava: Get out!
Di: It's true. It's -- it's incredible, and it's the worst mistake I ever made.
Kendall: What in the hell is wrong with you?
Greenlee: Hmm -- my best friend is a twisted control freak terrified I'm going to take the life she stole from me.
Kendall: I never stole anything from you.
Greenlee: Your husband sure did -- pulled the plug on the fertility clinic and took my life with it. Your devoted husband, your adorable baby, the head of an edgy, glamorous, got-to-have cosmetics company. My life -- you took it, you know it.
Kendall: Stop it, stop, all right? What you deserve, what you lost, what you're owed. Do you even think about what you did when you left us -- Ryan and me? No, no, of course not -- you're a spoiled, selfish, vindictive brat.
Greenlee: Who was your best friend.
Kendall: Things went wrong, horribly, I know that. But you could've stayed, you could've worked things out, and you didn't, you left. You left us.
Greenlee: You were going to give me a child -- my child. You were my sister, my friend.
Singer: 'Cause I know
Greenlee: You loved me enough to carry a baby. Well, how much do you love me now? What will you do to prove it?
Krystal: All right, anybody who's not a horse's ass, step up and place your order.
Babe: All right!
Krystal: You want a shot? All right.
Babe: That's on me, everyone!
Di: My life was in the toilet, going nowhere, and I pretended to be my sister, Dixie. She -- she had everything, everybody loved her. She had a child, she had a family, she had friends, she could do no wrong. Her life was like a dream that I wanted to wake up in, and -- and I did every day -- for a while.
Ava: Wow. Sounds great to me.
Di: Well, yeah, but, Ava, it eventually hit me -- no one loved me for me. They loved -- they loved her. Every kiss, every hug was a lie, it was my lie, and the more I was around these people the more I wanted them to love me for me.
Ava: How on earth did you do that? I mean, I haven't done jack to the people in this town -- well, mostly -- and they still hate me.
Jonathan: I'm sorry you got a double barrel of Greenlee.
Annie: I can take it.
Ryan: Definitely not Lily.
Jonathan: That's trouble, ok? We've had enough of that tonight.
Ava: I want to be the one that people smile at and they laugh with and invite over just to hang. Not because they think I'm Lily, but because I'm me.
Singer: Whoa the one thing that I found is your love
Ava: Ooh, hottie across the bar -- he likes me already. I'm going to go score me a drink.
Di: Ok, not the way to clean it up.
Ava: Just kidding.
Singer: Chasing dreams that we may never find so you keep on pushing till our souls are bruised no matter how far we go
Di: Hey! When did you get here?
Aidan: Just now. Ryan's wedding -- you knew that Ava was dressed up as Lily, and you didn't say a word. What's up with that, huh?
Di: What does it matter? Ava's harmless. She just wants to be accepted, she wants to be given a little bit of a chance. You and half this town have written her off, and for what? What did she do that so was bad for everybody? Why do you hate her?
Aidan: I don't hate her. I just don't think that she should be hanging --
Di: You know what? I'm sick of hearing about it. Ava does not deserve to be treated like trash. And if you don't get that, we have a problem.
Kendall: So you -- "prove that I love you." Haven't I proved that already? Didn't I prove that enough?
Greenlee: Locking me in the playhouse didn't scream "love."
Kendall: This is exactly why I didn't want you to come back. You test and you push, and you always have to be in control. You leave when you want, you come back when you want. You cut us off, no word for God knows how long, and then you come screaming back into town waiving a list of boo-hoos and gimmes. You're unhappy, Greenlee. You want us just as miserable as you are, and you won't stop until we are.
Greenlee: Wow -- honesty. Too bad you weren't handing out the truth when you lied about my baby.
Singer: The one thing that I found is your love
Kendall: I don't want to hurt you -- not then, not now.
Greenlee: You just want me gone.
Singer: Is your love
Greenlee: It's ok. I can handle it. I mean, that's what best friends are for, right? Honesty? Well, thanks. I got it -- right between the eyes.
Singer: Is your love
Jack: Greenlee, wait -- whoa, whoa, wait --
Kendall: No, no, no, no. There is no way you're going after her, no -- not unless you're going to smack her down.
Annie: It's not your call, Kendall. Ryan will do what he has to do.
Kendall: Do you have your flak jacket Greenlee gave you? I hope so.
Ryan: I'm just going to go and I'm going to talk to her, ok?
Jack: Whoa, whoa, I'm not so sure that's a wise idea.
Erica: No, Ryan can get through to Greenlee.
Ryan: Jack, let me try, please? Let me try.
Jack: Ok, do it.
[While the music plays, Babe cleans up the Roadside bar, then she and the Martins close down the place. Meanwhile, Greenlee paces on Fusion's rooftop then flings her green butterfly pin off the building as Ryan comes to confront her. After Jack walks up to Erica and kisses her on the cheek, they go their separate ways. Jonathan stares at Amanda while they close down ConFusion. Di looks glumly at Adrian as she puts on her sweater and leaves the bar. Kendall watches Annie sitting alone at the bar. At the Yacht Club, Zach stares at Hannah's empty bed then stands alone on the balcony staring into space.]
Travis sings "Closer": I've had enough of this parade. I'm thinking of the words to say. We open up unfinished parts broken up it's so mellow and when I see you then I know it will be next to me and when I need you then I know you will be there with me. I'll never leave you just need to get closer closer. Lean on me now lean on me now closer, closer lean on me now lean on me now keep waking up. Without you here, without you here. Another day, another day, another year, another year. I seek the truth, seek the truth. We sailed apart, we sailed apart. Thinking of a second chance, a second chance. And when I see you then I know it will be next to me and when I need you then I know you will be there with me I'll never leave you just need to get closer closer lean on me now lean on me now closer, closer lean on me now lean on me now lean on me now. And when I see you then I know it will be next to me. And when I need you then I know you will be there with me. I'll never leave you just need to get closer closer lean on me now lean on me now closer, closer lean on me now lean on me now lean on me now
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Colby (to Sean): Before this night is over, you are telling me every secret you have.
Annie (to Kendall): Ryan's done with Greenlee, and she's a smart woman, she will get a clue tonight. Ryan's going to come home to me.
[On Fusion's rooftop, Ryan and Greenlee kiss passionately]
