[Music plays at ConFusion]

Greenlee: Hey, champ. Come on, I offer to buy you a drink, I'm playing nice, and you're going to blow me off?

Aidan: Yeah, that sounds about right.

Greenlee: What, you've run out of things to lecture me about?

Aidan: You're not the only one that can have a bad day, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Oh, poor baby. But what could be harder than dealing with me?

[Aidan sighs]

Child's voice: Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down

Annie: Why are you calling me? What do you want?

[Annie hangs up the phone then picks it up again]

Annie: Hi. This is Annie Lavery, Emma's mom. Yeah, I'm going to need to pick her up early today from camp. If you could get her stuff together -- what do you mean, she's not there?

Zach: He was eating, getting better. What happened here, Joe?

Joe: It's a common problem with premature infants. But Dr. Delano has fixed brain hemorrhages in infants as young as Ian.

Zach: Kendall and I were just feeding him. We were just now --

Joe: It's critical we act right away. We have to relieve the pressure on Ian's brain.

Zach: He's too small. He's too young for this, Joe. We can't --

Joe: Zach, Zach, Ian can pull through.

Zach: You said the worst was behind him.

Joe: Well, it may be. You can't lose hope.

Zach: Where's that nurse? She was supposed to find Kendall. I need her to be here.

Ryan: So, where are Kendall and Spike?

Nurse: I don't know. Mr. Slater just asked me to bring Mrs. Slater to NICU.

Ryan: Is -- is Ian all right?

Nurse: Mr. Slater just said it was urgent.

Ryan: Really? Well, they got to be somewhere, right? Maybe Kendall just took Spike to run some tests or something.

Nurse: He isn't scheduled for anything. She may have taken Spike to peek in on his little brother, and our elevators crossed.

Ryan: I'll check it out.

Nurse: Oh. She can't have gone very far.

Kendall: Maybe someday you'll be on that wall. Right, big boy? Maybe you'll be on that wall.

Woman: First time here?

Kendall: Yes.

Woman: Yeah, I was nervous, too, my first visit.

Kendall: Are you a patient?

Woman: I was. Now I just come in for checkups. He's incredible, a gifted healer. Is this your little boy?

Kendall: Yes.

Woman: Well, if he needs help, you've come to the right place.

Donovan: Mrs. Slater?

Kendall: Yes?

Donovan: You can bring in your son now.

Kendall: Ok, let's go, honey. Come on.

Annie: Who picked Emma up? What, a man? Just any man shows up, and you hand him my daughter? He said he was her uncle? I -- why would you not call the parents to check on that? No, I'm not going to relax! I -- I'm going to call the cops right now!

[Knock on door]

Joe: We have a few more minutes while the surgical team prepares.

Zach: I can't go looking for her. I need to be here with Ian. He's going into surgery. What am I supposed to do?

Joe: No, it's all right. You stay here, I'll go see if I can find out --

Ryan: What -- what is it? What's wrong with Ian?

Zach: He has a brain hemorrhage, and they got to go in, try to relieve it, and Kendall is not here, we can't find her.

Ryan: I know -- she's not in the room, and neither is Spike. I thought maybe they were here with you.

Zach: What do you mean, she's not -- oh, no, no, no, no.

Joe: I'll alert security to look for her.

Zach: She got a phone call from some doctor saying he had a miracle cure -- a way to make Spike hear again.

Ryan: What?

Zach: Yeah, probably some quack. I don't know -- haven't had a chance to check him out.

Ryan: So you think that they left the hospital? What -- who is this doctor?

Zach: I don't care who the doctor was. Kendall needs to be here.

Joe: Security says Kendall's car is gone.

Kendall: Thank you for seeing me today.

Donovan: Well, your case is of great interest to me.

[Phone rings]

Donovan: Oh --

[Donovan chuckles]

Kendall: Oh.

Donovan: If you wouldn't mind switching that off when you're here --

Kendall: Oh, sure.

Donovan: It allows us to focus completely on your son.

Kendall: Yes, yes, yes. Of course.

[Phone stops ringing]

Kendall: All right, got to -- ok. So, um, how did you hear about Spike?

Donovan: Ah, well, you and your son have won yourselves quite a few admirers.

Kendall: Why are you so sure that you can help him, when all of the other doctors said that his condition is irreversible?

Donovan: I know, and Dr. Norton is a fine practitioner.

Kendall: But he made a mistake? I mean, was his diagnosis wrong? Are there other tests that we could run?

Donovan: Now, I don't doubt your son's diagnosis.

Kendall: But on the phone, you said that you -- you --

Donovan: I would like to try to help you. But first, I need to examine your son, look over his records, and then I can give you some answers.

Kendall: Um -- so you think it's possible that -- that they made a mistake?

Donovan: It's more likely a -- a lack of vision. Simply because I agree with your son's diagnosis doesn't mean I believe in the same prognosis.

Kendall: Thank God. I told them -- I said -- I -- I knew that there had to be something else that they could do.

Donovan: Well, I can imagine how you felt when you got the news. Everyone around you encourage -- encouraging you to adapt and -- and move on to the next traditional step.

Kendall: They want to do more surgery on Spike's skull. Cochlear implants.

Donovan: And that's an option, but for me, it's always been the very last option.

Kendall: I feel like it would be giving up, and that, I am not ready to do.

Donovan: Mm-hmm. So you're a fighter.

Kendall: Yeah, when it comes to my son, absolutely.

Donovan: Well, congratulations on being an advocate for your son's health.

Kendall: It's just that Dr. Norton sounded so certain that surgery was the only way.

Donovan: And I respect Dr. Norton immensely.

Kendall: But sometimes you don't agree with him?

Donovan: Or any doctor who believes that all cases are textbook cases. I don't believe in absolutes. Fifty years ago, we had just discovered antibiotics. And now, they are a standard course of care used to make people well throughout the world.

Kendall: So you think that you can help my son?

Donovan: Mm-hmm. Well, I don't promise miracles. But if you would care to examine my track record, I would be happy to take a look at Spike.

Kendall: Ok. You want to look at a book? Come on. Yeah, let's look at the book. Ok. All right. So these are all about former patients of yours?

Donovan: Mm-hmm, who were offered little or no hope.

Kendall: Until they came to you.

Donovan: May I?

Kendall: Come on. Let's see the nice man.

Donovan: Hey, Spike.

[Music plays]

Greenlee: What's the problem? Tough case?

Aidan: No -- a parting of ways.

Greenlee: Divorce? Well, Aidan, it is your lucky day, because I happen to be an expert in divorce. Someone hired you to dig up some dirt -- what?

Aidan: Hmm.

Greenlee: Must be very fulfilling, your work.

Aidan: It pays very, very well.

Greenlee: But it doesn't bother you to just break up marriages?

Aidan: Oh, you think I'm the bad guy?

Greenlee: No -- not really. I guess -- I guess some people are just not meant to be together.

Aidan: Yeah, you could say that.

Greenlee: Man, you need another drink.

Aidan: The last time I was in a bar with you, Greenlee, you didn't hold your liquor very well.

Greenlee: Well, I happen to be a co-owner of ConFusion, so they don't mind if I spill a little.

Aidan: Did you talk to Kendall?

Greenlee: Sort of.

Aidan: Did you own up and accept responsibility for what happened to Spike?

Greenlee: I'm doing something even better than that.

Kendall: So what do you think? I mean, after -- after examining him?

Donovan: Well, I can't guarantee a cure. Your son has been through a lot -- surgery, infections. There are a lot of toxins in his system.

Kendall: But his hearing. I mean, you -- you've helped other children. What about that -- that -- that 6-year-old, Alan Tufts from Boston?

Donovan: Oh, I've had success regenerating some degree of response, yes.

Kendall: How? I mean, what did you do?

Donovan: First, we have to get your little boy healthy -- herbal vitamins and a special diet.

Kendall: Ok, and -- and then?

Donovan: My treatment is a combination of stimulation, acupressure, and keeping a watchful eye on his general health.

Kendall: That's it?

Donovan: It sounds simple, doesn't it? But this decision is a very big step, Mrs. Slater -- not one to be taken lightly.

Kendall: I want you to explain it every step of the way.

Donovan: Of course.

Kendall: Ok.

Donovan: These will help you get started, and if you agree with the plan, you have every right to be hopeful.

Kendall: This -- this is going to make you better, Spikey.

Donovan: Hope, Mrs. Slater. Never underestimate the value of hope and faith in healing.

Kendall: Everyone keeps saying to me "can't" and "won't."

Donovan: No, and that probably won't stop. Oh, I have to face that kind of negativity all the time.

Kendall: Well, how do you handle it?

Donovan: I heal sick people. That -- huh -- that's the best response I can give.

Kendall: What do I tell Dr. Norton?

Donovan: Yeah, well, I can promise you that the doctors you're seeing will try to discredit me. They don't mean any harm, and they do have your best intentions at heart -- they do, as do I -- but they're -- they're so quick to rush to judgment.

Kendall: So, when do we get started?

Donovan: Well, as on as I can get Spike's medical records, and you need to educate yourself.

Kendall: Yes, done and done.

Donovan: Because your son's chances also depend on what kind of commitment you are willing to make.

[Spike babbles]

Kendall: You have idea.

Zach: Come on. Her phone's off.

Ryan: And you don't remember this doctor's name?

Zach: No, I don't remember the doctor's name. If I knew his name, we wouldn't be here.

Joe: I'm going to check with Dr. Delano about Ian.

Zach: I'm sorry, man. If I knew who it was, I -- she mentioned the name once.

Ryan: I -- I understand, I understand. I just --

Zach: What am I supposed to do? I -- it's all she said. She said the name one time --

Ryan: It's ok, it's all right. The thing is, is that when Kendall gets desperate like this, that's when she starts doing crazy stuff. That's what I'm worried about.

Zach: Ok. So what do we do? Should I leave here and then try to find her? As a procedure, I got to --

Ryan: No, no, you should stay. You stay -- stay here. I will find Kendall and Spike, all right?

Zach: Thank you. Ryan?

Ryan: Yeah?

Zach: There's a time issue.

Ryan: We'll get them back.

Zach: If something happens to Ian, and Kendall is not there --

Ryan: I got it, I got it. Tad? We have an emergency with Kendall and Spike, and I need your help.

Annie: Oh. Oh, thank God!

Jonathan: Whoo!

Annie: Hi!

Emma: Mommy!

Annie: Oh! Ah! Hey!

Operator: 911, how can we help?

Annie: Oh, I'm -- uh, I was -- never mind. I'm sorry. Hi! It is so good to see you.

Jonathan: Are you ok?

Annie: Yeah. Sweetie, why don't you go get your snack? It's in the kitchen.

Jonathan: Bye-bye-bye-bye.

Annie: What were you thinking? You can't just pick her up at camp like that. But, Jonathan, you didn't even call me! You can't just take her and pick her up like that!

Jonathan: Whoa, whoa -- hold up.

Annie: I called and they said that she was gone!

Jonathan: Annie, calm down. She had a dentist's appointment, remember?

Annie: What?

Jonathan: You asked me to pick her up today for her appointment.

Annie: Oh, my God, I'm sorry. I forgot.

Jonathan: Why did you call the camp first? What did you think happened?

Annie: Emma I'm sorry, Jonathan. I didn't mean to freak out on you.

Jonathan: I'm ok. Are you ok?

Annie: I'm fine.

Jonathan: Hmm. You don't seem fine.

Annie: It's just stress with all this hospital stuff and, you know --

Jonathan: Well, Emma's home now, and she's fine, so everything's ok.

Annie: Yeah. It's just with Ian and -- and Spike being at risk, I guess it's just -- it made me want to hold Emma that much tighter, you know what I mean?

Jonathan: Annie? What's really going on?

Annie: Totally not logical. I know.

Jonathan: Uh-uh.

Annie: It's just I -- yeah, I almost lost Emma once and all this stuff going on with the boys just kind of brings it all back. It was an unnecessary freak-out. It will not happen again.

Jonathan: Ok. Did you call Ryan?

Annie: No. There's really no reason to tell Ryan about this, no reason to make him worry over nothing.

Jonathan: "Nothing"? If I'm not mistaken, when I walked in the door, you were on the phone with 911.

Annie: It's crazy, I know.

Jonathan: A little bit -- yeah. Annie, what's really going on? What are you really afraid of?

Ryan: Where's Kendall's purse? Do you see her bag in there?

Tad: No. Look, are you going to look at this thing or not?

Ryan: Yeah.

Tad: It wasn't a piece of cake to come up with a list of every alternative medical practitioner in the local area, you know.

Ryan: Are you kidding me? There is way more than I thought here. Look, let's check her pockets. Maybe she wrote the doctor's number down somewhere.

Tad: Yeah, well, there's one thing I don't understand, is how are we sure that Kendall is still in the local area?

Ryan: Because Spike can't fly, so they have to be within driving distance.

Tad: Well, I wouldn't get too worked up about it. I mean, most of these people aren't necessarily doing anything illegal. They believe in what they have to sell.

Ryan: Look, if some doctor can help my son, then I'm all for it, ok? If -- if there's some sort of new research, then I'm going to sign up. I'm going to write the biggest check there is on the planet, but if this guy is hurting my son --

Tad: No, no, no, that's -- that's what I'm saying. I mean, I highly doubt it, and what they're selling mostly is hope, because the medicine behind it doesn't really add up to much.

Ryan: Well, I'm worried about Kendall, too. I mean, Spike hasn't been released from the hospital, right, and she just walks out the front door with him -- what is that? What -- where is she, and where has she taken my son?

Tad: Take it easy -- take a deep breath, ok? We know she loves Spike. She's not going to do anything to hurt him.

Ryan: Not intentionally, Tad, but she is severely sleep-deprived, she's not thinking clearly. That is what I'm worried about.

[Music plays]

Greenlee: Mmm -- two shandies.

Aidan: So, you said instead of taking responsibility for Spike's deafness, you did something better?

Greenlee: Is that so hard to believe?

Aidan: Well, it's just not you, Greenlee. You'd do almost anything than admit you screwed up.

Greenlee: Ok. You know what? I get it. This is "I've had a hard day, so let's take it out on Greenlee." It's fine. I mean, I'm an easy target, but maybe, just maybe --

[Aidan sighs]

Greenlee: I did something to fix Spike's problem.

Aidan: Oh. The last I heard, Spike's problem can't be fixed.

Greenlee: Well, guess what, Detective Devane -- you just don't know everything.

Aidan: I get it -- so this is the part where I'm supposed to ask you what it is that you did?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm. You could.

Aidan: Yeah.

Greenlee: I did something really wonderful for little Spike.

Aidan: You really don't know when to stop, do you? Anything you touch in their family will end up a disaster.

Joe: A premature infant's brain is still developing. The membrane between the capillaries and the ventricles is very fragile. That's why a majority -- up to 40% of the premature infants -- can develop this condition, and even in the first week.

Zach: That's why he had a sonogram every day?

Joe: Yeah, that's right. That's the issue we've been monitoring. Main thing here is to make sure to relieve the pressure on his brain.

Zach: Is it going to hurt him?

Joe: We'll do our best to control that situation.

Zach: That's not the answer I was looking for.

Joe: Zach, he'll have no memory of it.

Zach: But I will, Joe. I will.

Joe: Mm-hmm. Oh, yeah -- thank you. Ch: Uh -- what -- what if we don't do this procedure, you know? What if -- what if we wait it out?

Joe: We can't. And we need your authorization.

Zach: How long can we wait for Kendall?

[Zach sighs]

Kendall: I will devote myself to Spike's recovery completely.

Donovan: I will count on that, Mrs. Slater.

Kendall: There's something else you should know. I just had another baby. A little boy. He was born premature, and he's still in the hospital.

Donovan: Now, this must be enormously difficult for your family.

Kendall: I -- I haven't been able to spend enough time with him, because I've been so worried about Spike. You ever feel like you're -- you're being pulled in half?

Donovan: How's your support system?

Kendall: We're very lucky.

Donovan: And your husband -- he's willing to go down this road with Spike?

Kendall: I'm not so sure he'll be on board.

Donovan: You absolutely have to talk to him about this. He does know you're here?

Kendall: I mentioned you.

Donovan: But this appointment -- you told him about it?

Kendall: Not exactly. He's just -- he's -- he's -- he's got our other son to deal with.

Donovan: Mrs. Slater, my treatment of your son cannot be a secret between you and your husband. You will need his help.

Kendall: Ok, I -- but I don't want to fight with my husband right now. He's so worried about our other little boy.

Donovan: As are you.

Kendall: Yes, yes, of course.

Donovan: And as you said, you feel as though you're being pulled in two different directions.

Kendall: What are you getting at?

Donovan: This will only work for Spike if it is a team effort, you and I working together.

Kendall: Yes, yes, and I agreed.

Donovan: Every ounce of your energy has to be on this child's recovery. You have to focus on this child. Can you do that?

Josh: I heard about Ian. How is he?

Zach: He needs his mother. I need her.

Josh: Kendall's not here?

Zach: She took off with Spike.

Josh: What -- what?

Zach: She's on some miracle mission. She turned off her phone, no one knows where she is.

Josh: Do you need me to go look for her?

Zach: And I asked her -- I asked her not to take Spike out of the hospital until she's ready -- looking for some quack. But still, she pulled him out.

Josh: Well, maybe she thought that this guy could --

Zach: I don't care!

Josh: I'm sorry. Is there something that I can -- something I can do?

Zach: No.

Josh: All right, well, I'm going to stay here.

Tad: Ok, my guy at the phone company is going to trace all the calls going in or out of Kendall's cell.

Ryan: Ok, great. How quick can you get those?

Tad: I don't know -- it depends. Who cares? She's going to come back.

Ryan: Look, is there any chance that we can get on her work e-mail from here? Maybe she was on the Internet --

Tad: Come on, Ryan, you're treating her like a criminal. Are you sure you'd want to go there?

Ryan: Look, I know that Kendall means well, Tad. I do, but she -- she is stressed, and she's in denial, ok? She wants Spike to hear so badly that she'll do anything. She'll hand him over to anybody that says that they can help. They'll -- they'll be running tests at Spike doesn't need, ok? When Kendall is desperate, she does not stop.

Tad: Well, sometimes, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Ryan: Come on, Tad, you know her. You know when she's off the rail. She does crazy things. She -- she locks people in towers. She pretends that she's pregnant. I mean, who knows? Maybe some nut convinced her to fly off to Borneo and feed my son a diet of God knows what.

Tad: Ok, fine -- whatever she's going through, let's not get crazy, ok? Relax. Try to take a --

Ryan: No, don't -- don't tell me to relax and to breathe, ok? Because we don't know where they are, we don't know who they're with, and we don't know when they're coming back.

Tad: Well, one thing we do know -- that Kendall's a very intelligent young woman, ok? She's not going to start jumping through hoops for some witch doctor.

Ryan: Do you not remember Zach having to go and get Kendall and take her back from Greg Madden's island? Because I do. Now, I don't understand why she's not calling here.

Tad: Ryan, I know a little something about desperate hope myself, ok? About being willing to do anything, no matter how illogical, because of Kate. Personally, I would do anything to find my daughter. And you know what? Sometimes, you get your miracle. Wishing on a star doesn't make somebody stupid, it makes them human.

Ryan: You don't think that I would chase hope if I could?

Tad: Well, then maybe you should chase it a little harder. Work on that. Because before you know it, that hope is going to evaporate all too soon. That's when you put it aside and move on.

Ryan: Really? What if you just get a phone call right now with some far-off clue about Kate?

Tad: I would grab on to it and follow it wherever it took me.

Aidan: Here's an idea. Why don't you give Kendall's family a break? Maybe you could take a time-out from helping them.

Greenlee: Huh. Way to kill my good-deed buzz.

Aidan: I mean, call me a realist, but I've seen how your wild ideas turn out.

Greenlee: Ok, if you want to be an ass, that's fine, because I don't have to tell you anything.

Aidan: You know, I really can't believe it. Do all women expect to have their fantasies stroked, even when they make no sense?

Greenlee: "All women"? What is wrong with you? Because it is certainly not the case. Oh, my God.

Aidan: What?

Greenlee: Di's moving to New York. She kicked you to the curb. She dumped you cold. Oh -- sorry, but that is brilliant. That is just -- oh -- yeah, brilliant.

Annie: I was worried about Emma, I forgot about her dentist appointment, so I picked up the phone.

Jonathan: And you dialed 911. You didn't think to -- to call Ryan, or to check with Rachael? Me?

Annie: It was stupid, I know, but there's no reason to bother Ryan with it. I got carried away, that's all.

Jonathan: Ok. If you do have a problem, you tell Ryan about it, and he'll fix it.

Annie: There's no problem. I'm fine.

Jonathan: Well, ok, but "fine" is watching TV. You know, "fine" is going to work. "Fine" is not -- is not calling the cops.

Annie: I -- I know. So I skipped a few steps.

Jonathan: If you can't tell Ryan about it, you can run it by me. Annie, anything you need --

Annie: Jonathan, I'm fine. Really.

Jonathan: Ok, I'm sorry. It just seemed to me like -- like you need someone to talk to right now.

Annie: What we all need right now is good news from the hospital and a few nights of sleep, that's all.

Jonathan: You do not have to be strong all the time.

Annie: I'm not, believe me.

Jonathan: You're not? You've held this entire family together. I saw you with Spike. You were great. You made sure that Ryan kept his eye on the positive.

Annie: I wish I could do more.

Jonathan: We all do. But you -- you have been Ryan's angel.

[Phone rings]

Annie: No, no, don't answer it! 

[Phone rings]

Jonathan: I'm going to handle this. Who is this?

Ryan: It's your brother. That's a nice way to answer the phone.

Jonathan: I'm sorry! I'm sorry. Ryan, hi. Some kids were making prank calls.

Ryan: Is Annie around?

Jonathan: Yeah, sure, hold on.

Annie: Hi.

Ryan: Hi. Look, I'm -- I'm looking for Kendall, and -- have you seen her, or have you heard from her, or anything?

Annie: Isn't she still in the hospital?

Ryan: No. We can't find her or Spike.

Annie: Sure, ok.

Ryan: Annie, so you haven't seen her?

Annie: Sounds good.

Ryan: What? Why is that good?

Annie: I'm sorry, what did you say?

Ryan: Are you all right? What's going on?

Annie: I'm fine.

Ryan: Come on, Annie. If you know anything --

Annie: No, nothing.

Ryan: All right. So Kendall didn't mention another doctor?

Annie: Uh -- no, as far as I know, all Spike's doctors are in the hospital.

Ryan: All right, ok. Well, if you hear from her, just let me know as soon as you can, all right? This is important. I have to find her. I don't want to get into why right now. I'll check in later.

Jonathan: Annie, are you sure that all you need's a good night sleep?

Emma: Uncle Jon, come make some cookies.

Annie: Huh. Ok, see, now that -- that is a good idea. Cookies would make me feel a lot better.

Jonathan: You sure?

Annie: Yes, I'm sure. Go. Go, bake. Bake away. I'm going to tidy up around here.

Jonathan: Come here, you.

[Jonathan growls]

Jonathan: Ha-ha!

Emma: Oh!

Jonathan: All right, off we go.

Annie: Come on, pick up. Pick up.

Ryan: No one has heard from Kendall.

Tad: Are you sure that's it? You're sure? Well, that's exactly what we need. I owe you. We got a hit. A Dr. Donovan Hilliard.

Ryan: Hilliard?

Tad: Yeah.

Ryan: Hmm. Hill -- Hilliard. It's a match.

Tad: There you go, the address.

Ryan: Tad, thank you.

Zach: Every hour is another battle. Because life is determined to beat this little guy down.

Josh: Well, they're going to use a -- it's a really thin needle. Sorry.

Zach: Do you think he knows something's wrong?

Josh: I don't know. But I can say those doctors do know what they're doing. Your son has a good chance of coming out of this perfectly normal.

Zach: Thanks, man.

Josh: I know it's -- it's a roller coaster ride right now with a baby this young. It's difficult for everyone. A preemie's going to have good days and bad days. Unfortunately, this just happens to be a not-so-good day. The thing is, what used to be a miracle a few years ago is now happening every day today. Every day that your son is with us, he's one day closer to being your miracle.

Kendall: I can and will focus on Spike. And just so you know, I -- I am totally cool with the whole organic thing. I -- in fact, my company has just recently launched a whole line of all-organic, all-natural products.

Donovan: As we become a more sophisticated society, we realize there are healthier ways to live.

Kendall: Whatever the cost, I can give you a check.

Donovan: Well, that won't be necessary. There is no charge.

Kendall: That's very nice of you, but everyone needs to be paid for their work.

Donovan: Well, I'm well-funded by my foundation. It is our policy to accept every case, regardless of the patient's ability to pay.

Kendall: But I'm willing, and I'm -- I'm able -- I'm very able.

Donovan: Yeah? In the future, if you think I've made a difference in your son's life, I will be glad to accept a donation from you. But for now, I have enough wealthy benefactors.

[Music plays]

Greenlee: So, is there anything I can do for you? You know, hold you or coddle your ego?

Aidan: Walk away, far away.

Greenlee: How about some chocolate and a blankie? Or maybe you're more of a shot-and-one-night-stand kind of guy.

Aidan: Yeah, not with you.

Greenlee: Oh, I am not offering. You know, I know I'm supposed to feel bad for you, but I'm -- I'm sorry, I'm just -- I'm loving this. I am loving this.

Aidan: Who did I kill in a past life to deserve you, huh?

Greenlee: You know, Aidan, some people are just that lucky.

Aidan: Oh, really, this is -- this is like some -- some bad, messed-up movie where I save your life, and then I have to put up with you forever, like some -- some barnacle.

Greenlee: "Barnacle"? I -- I've never been called that before.

Aidan: It's not a compliment, Greenlee.

Greenlee: You know, you're awfully cute when you're all ticked off.

Aidan: And you are like a -- a major pain in the backside.

Greenlee: Hmm -- I would so throw you mercy sex, but it turns out --

Aidan: Hmm.

Greenlee: I'm not that merciful.

Aidan: I'll pass, thank you.

Greenlee: You know, here you are, this sexy, British James Bond type I mean, you could have any girl in town.

Aidan: And look who I am stuck with.

Greenlee: And even though you have all these things going for you, you still manage to lose the girl. How is that possible?

[Greenlee chuckles]

Greenlee: Hey, don't worry about it. I am the queen of bad relationships.

Aidan: Greenlee, I am so glad you came here tonight, because I feel so much better.

Greenlee: Well, you just tell mean old Greenlee what happened. You want to sit on my lap?

Aidan: You want to mind your own business?

Greenlee: So, did Di say "It's not you, it's me"? Or -- or "you deserve better"?

Aidan: I saved her the trouble. I quoted all the lines before she had a chance.

Greenlee: Really?

Aidan: Yeah. "We're not on the same page anymore." "It was fun while it lasted."

Greenlee: What about --

Aidan: You name it.

Greenlee: Um -- um -- um -- oh, I know, I know, um -- "You're just too good for me."

Aidan: You know what? She must have left that one out.

Greenlee: You know, when I was a teenager, I got "you're not hot enough for me."

[Greenlee chuckles]

Aidan: Well, that's clearly not my problem, is it?

Greenlee: Oh, clearly. You know, there's always "I just can't be in a relationship right now."

Aidan: Or "I love you, but I'm just not in love with you."

Greenlee: Oh, yeah. That one hurts, or "I got to be alone right now."

Aidan: Alone with someone else, and then they tell you they're moving away to start their own life.

Greenlee: Right, like you didn't want them to have that in the first place.

Aidan: Or "I'm, like -- I'm -- I'm trapped. I'm just -- I'm just not a relationship person."

Greenlee: Commitment phobe. And then you're thinking, "But we were just having fun."

Aidan: What happened to having good old fun, really?

Greenlee: I don't know. Have you ever had someone get on a motorcycle and jump off a cliff? Oh, wait. That would be me. That's how you know someone doesn't really want to be with you.

Aidan: Can't say that's happened to me yet.

Greenlee: Well, then guess what -- I win. Hey, hey, hey. Where are you going?

Aidan: You talked me into having a drink, and now I'm sticking you with the check.

Annie: He hasn't left? You're sure about that? Ok. Thank you.

Jonathan: Well, we hope these help.

Annie: Oh, great.

Jonathan: There you go.

Annie: Thank you for -- for worrying about me, but I'm fine. Really.

Jonathan: Ok. I'm going to take a couple for the road, ok?

[Annie chuckles]

Jonathan: Because I gots to go. Good-bye. I'll see you later.

Annie: Bye. Oh. Hey, you. You are the sweetest little girl in the world. Sweeter than any cookies around.

Josh: You know, if Kendall knew Ian was in trouble --

Zach: She doesn't know.

Josh: She'll be back. Just keep doing what you're doing. Focus on Ian.

Zach: All right, boy. I'll be right here. I'm not going anywhere. Kendall has no idea how much she was needed here today.

Kendall: Ok, so when is our next appointment?

Donovan: Well, I would like to see Spike at least twice a week.

Kendall: Ok, not a problem.

Donovan: And you'll need to cut all the interference out of his life. I suggest you check him out of the hospital, take him home, and let me know how Spike's father feels about all this.

[Spike babbles "Oh, oh!  Oh, oh!  Oh, oh!" when Ryan walks in]

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

Ava (to Babe): What are you trying to do, ruin my life?

Tad (to Jamie): Are you sure you're my son? You are the worst liar.

Ryan (to Kendall): Ian has had a brain hemorrhage. He's in surgery.

Joe: I'm sorry, Zach. We did everything we could.

Kendall (to Zach): I need you.

Zach (to Kendall): And our little boy needed you.
