Hannah: I think I figured it out -- the way to get Kendall away from Greenlee completely.
Zach: Let's hear it.
[Kendall sneaks into Greenlee's apartment]
Greenlee: Well, who is it? Who'd the dead guy call last? Is it Annie's brother?
Aidan: Annie's voicemail.
Greenlee: Annie? Oh, my -- Aidan, do you know what this means?
Aidan: Yeah, I do. It means Ryan is in a lot of trouble.
Ryan: How does someone belly-flop in the ocean?
Annie: I told you, I am the world's worst body surfer.
Annie: I may be perfect in every other aspect of life, but there are two flaws you can count on -- I make a crappy cup of coffee, and I do not do waves.
Ryan: You know, I was hoping that coming down here would get your mind off of all the crazy stuff happening back home.
Annie: Yeah. No matter how hard I try, I can't stop thinking about Richie.
Ryan: I've got men looking for him. Now, we're going to find Richie before we get back home -- in the meantime, we're kind of -- kind of stuck, you know, in paradise. You have any idea how we can pass the time?
[Ryan and Annie kiss]
Greenlee: Ok, ok, hold on. I know what you're thinking. I even know why you're thinking it. The evidence against Annie is bad, real bad, but -- and I can't believe I'm about to defend the woman --
Aidan: Hey, listen -- all right, all right, all right. Listen, before you go on, take a look at this. I found this in the said dead guy's wallet signed by no other than Annie Lavery.
Greenlee: Damn. Well, that seals it. But, Aidan, I can't believe Annie is behind all this.
Aidan: Because she isn't.
Greenlee: But the locket, the phone, now the check.
Aidan: Right, exactly, ok? This reeks of a setup. Ryan was right -- Annie is being framed.
Babe: Ok, it's official. I love batting cages.
Wes: Well, I was hoping this date would be better than the last one.
Babe: No, it was a great idea, Wes, really. I mean, I'm so not the "dinner by candlelight" type of girl anyway.
Wes: Yeah, I had a feeling.
Babe: Hey. I just hope you're not bummed out I only tried to hit a few pitches. It's just --
Wes: No. Getting hit in the face with a foul ball is a good reason to sit out.
Babe: Yeah, except it happened 12 years ago. You'd think I'd probably be over it by now.
Wes: I was just thinking about Krystal going after that poor kid who hit the foul ball.
Babe: You have no idea. Not only did she go after the kid, she went after the pitcher, the catcher, the coach, the -- the poor lady who brought the juice boxes after the game.
Wes: Yeah. Yeah, my mom was the same way. You know, she was the nicest lady you'd ever want to meet, but you looked at me cross-eyed --
Babe: Right, I know. Mama, she was never afraid of anyone. She still isn't.
Wes: Yeah, I always knew if I didn't get drafted by the Padres, my mom was going to go after every GM in the majors just because they didn't pick me up.
Babe: But the Padres? You -- wow. I could tell that you were good in the cage, but I had no idea that you played for the majors.
Wes: Hmm -- actually, I didn't play. I was drafted, but -- things change, personal things, and -- hey, that's life. You always don't get what you planned for.
Babe: Well, I totally feel you on that. I -- I wanted to be a ballerina when I was growing up -- don't laugh. But Mama, she didn't have much money back then, and so we were moving around a lot. And I just -- I was never in one place long enough to stick with the dance class.
Wes: Well, maybe your inner ballerina should hang out with my inner baseball star --
Wes: And they can teach other what it's like to dream big again.
Babe: Yeah, well, it's easy to fantasize like that when you're a kid, but when you're an adult, and you have a kid, things change. You start focusing on your child's dream rather than your own.
Wes: Oh, come on. Nowhere in the history of parentdom is it written that you give up on life once you become a parent, is it?
Babe: No! No, no, no, it doesn't say that, but, I mean, I have spent enough of Little Adam's life focusing on myself. It's time for me to be an adult now.
Wes: Mm-hmm. And for his dad?
Babe: J.R.'s great with Little A. I just feel I have to the stable one in the family. And J.R. does enough big dreaming for the both of us. And sadly, it rarely ever pays off.
J.R.: Trust me, it's happening. No, I've got product lined up, I've got advertisers in place. I have a supermodel who's willing to do whatever it takes. I'm just waiting for my backers. I should hear something by the end of the day -- or sooner. All right. Bye. Jonny boy! Buddy!
J.R.: How's it going? What are you drinking?
Jonathan: I'll have whatever's on tap.
J.R.: On my tab.
Jonathan: Oh, wow. You want to know if I talked to Ryan, don't you? Yeah. Yeah, you do. See, Ava's been on me for days to get my brother to fund this little network thing you've got going on.
J.R.: "Little" -- yeah. It's huge, historic.
Jonathan: Yeah, that's what Ava says, too. As a matter of fact -- well, it's all she can talk about.
J.R.: Well, can you blame the girl? I mean, the concept is out of this world.
Jonathan: You know what? I agree, it is. But if you think I'd lift a finger to help you get anything off the ground, well, then you're just a damn fool. Excuse me.
Aidan: If you were going to go to this much trouble to make it look like your brother was the bad guy, would you leave such an obvious trail back to you?
Greenlee: No, of course not.
Aidan: Exactly. Well, then neither would Annie.
Greenlee: Wow. Wow! You're right.
Aidan: I mean, I'll be the first to admit, I thought it was Annie in the beginning, right, but this check and then the dead guy's last phone calls, Annie's voicemail -- I mean, this is just way too neat.
Greenlee: So Annie's brother really is a threat?
Aidan: Yeah, bigtime.
Greenlee: Launching a full-on ambush against his sister, that is harsh.
Aidan: When I apologize to Ryan, I'm going to tell him that this Richie Novak is more dangerous than we thought.
Ryan: Sand still does the trick, huh? Our safe place.
Annie: You think we could live on the beach for the rest of our lives, just you, me, Spike, and Emma?
Ryan: I mean, who needs school when you can learn the fine art of sandcastle building and shell collecting?
Annie: Huh -- I mean it. With you and the crashing waves and the sand burying my toes, I -- I honestly feel safer than I've felt in a really long time.
Ryan: There's no reason that you couldn't feel that every single day.
Annie: Think I could live in a sandcastle?
Ryan: Absolutely. I mean, I could build you one if you want, as big as you.
Ryan: Of course, every time the tide comes in, I'd have to rebuild it for you every single day.
Annie: If only.
Ryan: Come here. Not so practical, maybe. But you know what? I have a better idea. Can I grab your purse here?
Ryan: Ok. This should do the trick.
Annie: What trick?
Ryan: You have more of these, right?
Annie: Yeah, why?
Ryan: Ok, good. Sorry, Fusion, but this is for a greater cause. There we go. There. Now you have a little bit of our safe place with you all the time. And you'll know that there's a little piece of me that's always going to be with you.
Kendall: Ugh. When did Greenlee turn into such a slob? My God. Oh. "For the love of Benjy"? Oh, my God. Honey, I feel sorry for you.
Hannah: Well, I've met Greenlee, and she is not the type of person to walk away from Fusion for nothing, so let's just find out what her price is.
Zach: I already told you, she can't be bought. And you're right, she's not going to walk away from Fusion. She helped build that company from the ground up.
Hannah: Well, she walked away once before. Obviously it doesn't hold that big of a place in her heart.
Zach: Well, it does now. It's the only thing connecting her to Kendall and, by proxy, to Spike. Hey.
Lily: Hi, Zach. You asked me to come in at exactly 5:00 p.m. to take dictation on that letter that the London office is waiting for? Are you going to change my schedule?
Zach: Nope. Set up. We're just going to finish this discussion we're having.
Hannah: Shouldn't she wait outside for a few more minutes?
Lily: Is she going to change my schedule?
Zach: Do what you're doing.
Hannah: Are you sure? Isn't she related to Greenlee?
Lily: I think you should know, Hannah, that I have excellent hearing, and I'm only related to Greenlee by adoption. Ava's my half sister, my half blood sister.
Zach: I trust her. She knows whatever happens here stays here.
Lily: That's one of the rules of my job.
Hannah: All right. If we can't get Greenlee away from Fusion, then we need to find a way to get Kendall to leave.
Zach: She'll never leave.
Zach: Never. Her heart and soul is in that company.
Hannah: All right. If we can't get Kendall out of Fusion, and we can't get Greenlee out of Fusion, then there's only one thing to do -- destroy Fusion.
[As she looks through Greenlee's Fusion scrapbook, Kendall remembers]
Greenlee’s voice: Are you saying this could be a real possibility, our going into business together?
Kendall’s voice: Well, we don't trust each other. We know that going in. That puts us ahead of a lot of other partners.
Greenlee’s voice: But we'll kill each other.
Kendall’s voice: Aren't we smarter than that? The truth is, Greenlee, I need more than your startup money.
Greenlee’s voice: Is this a snow job?
Kendall’s voice: You have a talent for this business, but I'm good, too. I'll prove it to you. Maybe we'll both surprise each other.
Greenlee’s voice: Oh, well. I guess then it's number 37. Madame Curie, you're up. What do you got?
Kendall: All right, all right. Right now, I've got ylang ylang.
Greenlee: Ooh, excellent. Essence of old panda bear, lovely. I'm just kidding, try it.
Kendall: I am.
Greenlee: Green tea!
Kendall: Green tea!
Greenlee: It's natural!
Kendall: That -- it's perfect.
Greenlee: It's perfect!
Kendall: It's perfect.
Greenlee: It's natural and --
Greenlee and Kendall: Perfect!
Greenlee’s voice: Oh, my gosh!
Kendall’s voice: Get it in there, get it in there. You are so brilliant.
Zach: If you destroy Fusion, you destroy my wife.
Hannah: The company can't mean what it once did for Kendall.
Zach: You're right, it means more.
Hannah: How is that possible? Kendall and Greenlee may have started the company together, but whatever bond they once had had to be broken 10 times over the night Greenlee took Spike.
Zach: We're not destroying Fusion. It's the only thing keeping my wife sane.
Hannah: It's a name on a product, Zach -- nothing more.
Zach: Oh, yeah?
Zach: Why don't you tell Kendall that?
Hannah: The way she feels about Fusion she can easily feel about another company.
Zach: It's never going to happen.
Hannah: Come on, Zach. She'll call all the shots, not have to partner with the woman who made her son deaf. She'll not only be ok with letting go of Fusion, she'll be grateful. And the best part of it -- no more Greenlee ever again. Isn't that what you want for Kendall?
Zach: What I want is for my wife to be safe.
Hannah: Then you have to destroy Fusion -- to save your wife.
Babe: Ok, so from forward position, you pull to the fifth and arms above your head and up to your tippy-toes. Above your head -- oh, you are -- have no balance! You'd make a terrible ballerina.
Babe: I, um, have a little confession to make. I only said that I would step up to the plate again just so I could see you twirl on your tippy-toes. I have no intention of ever having a bat in my hands again. Sorry.
Wes: So that's how it's going to be?
Wes: Tell a guy what he wants to hear, have your wicked little way with him, and you throw him to the bench? Is that what it's going to be?
Babe: Well, you could see it that way, possibly, or you could see it from perspective, which is -- you are a sucker.
Wes: I'm going to remember that.
Babe: How do I know that this isn't your little game that you do? You drag me out to these beautiful batting cages just so you can butter me up and have your way with me later?
Wes: Because I wouldn't do that.
Wes: Unless you told me it would work, then I would do that.
Wes: No, seriously, I'm not that kind of guy.
Babe: What kind of guy are you?
Wes: What you see is what you get.
Babe: Oh, come on. You've got to have some deep, dark secret in there somewhere, right?
Wes: Would you be too bummed if I didn't?
Babe: Are you kidding me? I would do grand jetes all around the bases.
Wes: Well, then do them.
Babe: There's your ballerina.
Wes: That's perfect.
Hannah: It's going to be scary at first for her. But Kendall knows the ins and outs of the cosmetic world. I mean, she's got knowledge, connections --
Zach: Stop, stop. We're not destroying Fusion, end of story. Thank you. Lily, who are you calling?
Lily: J.R. Chandler.
Lily: Because he already has plans to start a cosmetics business, and I think it'd be wise for Zach to talk to him.
Hannah: Hey, hang up. Lily, hang up.
[Lily hangs up phone]
Zach: What do you know about J.R.?
Lily: He's starting a beauty network. I know because he's using my sister, Ava, to launch it.
J.R.: You have your doubts, I get it. Nobody's done anything like this before. We're treading in untested waters. Add to that, it's a lot, so you don't know how to go to Ryan and ask him to sponsor something that you're not completely sold on?
Jonathan: No. I'm sold on the concept.
J.R.: Just not on me?
Jonathan: I don't trust you -- uh, don't like you.
J.R.: Oh -- all right, fair enough. Personalities aside, you think my idea will work, which it will, as do many of the other people that I work with. So don't you think it's a little bit foolish to not jump on the bandwagon?
Jonathan: Ok, I have to admit, I am impressed. It seems like this time you actually covered all your bases, you know. You did your homework.
Jonathan: Well, except for that one part where you don't have any real backers, which means that you don't have any money to get this little network/pet project thing of yours up off the ground. Because as we know, it takes makes money to make the money, right, J.R.? But you don't have any money.
J.R.: Look, you want to stick it to me, that's fine, but you're also spitting on Ava's career.
Jonathan: I'm going to have to make it up to Ava. Besides, she's doing great at Fusion.
J.R.: You might think she's doing great at Fusion. It might be enough for you, but it's not enough for Ava -- which is why I don't think you should be playing God with her career, considering the ugly past of yours, and it keeps popping up.
Jonathan: My past has nothing to do with this.
J.R.: Oh, come on, Jonny! You dumped a whole dumpster full of bad publicity on Ava just by dating her. Don't you think you owe it to her to make it right?
Jonathan: There's a big difference between owing Ava something and owing you anything. I am going to have to find a way to make this up to Ava, but I will keep her safe from you.
J.R.: All right. You can't let the grudge go against me, at least go to Ryan with my idea.
Jonathan: I said no, J.R. Your answer is no.
Annie: I'm so sorry it took me so long to tell you the truth.
Ryan: Don't -- don't apologize.
Annie: I should've said something.
Ryan: I know how hard it is to talk about painful family stuff, so -- the important thing is, is that you told me, and I honestly feel closer to you now.
Annie: You don't have to say that, Ryan.
Ryan: Why? It's true. I know who you are even more.
Annie: Really? Who am I? A woman who spent her entire adult life dodging questions about her family and pretending to have a picture-perfect childhood?
Ryan: No. Actually, you're a woman with a phenomenal amount of love inside you whose family turned on you. And you could've got so -- so bitter that -- and that didn't happen. The opposite happened. You became honest and loyal and --
Annie: Stop, Ryan. Stop.
Ryan: But you love your mother so much that you named your daughter after her.
Annie: My mom, she -- she used to love the beach so much. She loved it. She would collect these beautiful shells. I miss her so much. I miss my dad, too. I mean, even though he's here, it's like he's -- he's gone, too, you know?
Ryan: Yeah. I'm so-- I'm sorry, Annie. You -- you've been through hell.
Annie: You know that time we were in Chicago in the hotel room, my dad and I put on that whole act for you? Really, I just wanted so bad for him to just lean over and hold me in his arms, you know?
Ryan: He can still come around.
Annie: I've wanted that for years. When I was on the run from Terry -- oh, my God -- I wanted to go home so badly, but I couldn't. I mean, Emma, she doesn't even know her own grandfather.
Ryan: That's still possible.
Annie: No, not as long as he's supporting Richie.
Ryan: Do you think that he is? Do you think that he's helping Richie do what he's doing now?
Annie: No, no. Richie would never let my dad know his plan. Richie would never let anybody know what -- what a sick human being he really is.
Ryan: So you don't think that your dad honestly knows where Richie is right now?
Annie: If he did, he wouldn't tell me.
Ryan: You have been through so much.
Annie: Thank God I found you, Ryan. I mean it. Emma's dad and my hero, all wrapped into one.
Ryan: You know, sometimes when you think that you've just lost everything, something else comes around, and it just takes away all the pain.
Annie: I think we're -- think we're due for something good to happen real soon.
Ryan: It will. It will. I don't know what or when, but it will. I know -- another baby. And this time we'll do it the old-fashioned way. I'm serious. When all this dust settles, I'm going to make that possible.
Annie: I would love that. But I can't think that far ahead yet. Not until --
Ryan: We're going to find him, Annie.
Greenlee: So if all clues point to Annie, but Annie is innocent, what now?
Aidan: Well, listen, there must be a clue that we're just -- that we're just not getting, all right, something somewhere that leads us right to Richie Novak.
Greenlee: All right, well, let me look at the dead guy's phone. Maybe Eddie kept his calendar on here, or there's a number we haven't yet checked.
Aidan: Hey, listen, you do that. I'm going to take another look for Eddie's wallet.
Greenlee: Let's see, Eddie -- did you fancy yourself a photographer? Ew!
Aidan: What? Oh, my. It looks like Eddie had some exhibitionists for friends.
Greenlee: Looks like it was taken at some party. Hey, do you see that guy? Is that Eddie? I know it's kind of blurry.
Aidan: No, that's not Eddie.
Greenlee: How do you know? Look at that tattoo.
Aidan: No, listen -- look. That looks like Eddie, but I think what we have here is a picture of Annie's brother.
[Annie slathers oil all over Ryan and massages him, then they kiss and roll around on the bed sans clothes]
Singer: Clear it's becoming quite clear that I want you here, and I miss my home, and I put on such a front; but all I really want, hold me, kiss me, touch me, love me, need me, want me, hold me, love me, hold me, kiss me ♪
Greenlee: This picture couldn't have been taken that long ago.
Aidan: If this really is Richie, then he's here in Pine Valley.
Greenlee: How do you know?
Aidan: Because look, look at this shot right here. It was taken at the same party, but everyone is on the balcony. You see that in the background?
Aidan: That's the bell tower from St. Clare's Church.
Greenlee: Yeah. Oh, God, that's creepy. I mean, if he's in Pine Valley --
Aidan: Then Ryan needs to know about it.
Greenlee: But you know, that could be any guy. It's like the universal "I'm a slacker" look.
Aidan: Yeah, but this is all we've got, all right? I'm going to send it to Ryan.
Aidan: Ryan, it's Aidan.
Ryan: Yeah, what's up?
Aidan: Listen, man, I'm sorry I ever doubted you, all right? You were right all along. Annie's brother is as nasty as they come.
Ryan: Well, what finally convinced you?
Aidan: The growing trail of evidence against her that Annie's just way too smart to leave. Hey, we think we might have a picture of him. I'm going to forward it to your phone.
Ryan: Uh -- you know what? E-mail it to me, because I brought my computer.
Hannah: So is that all you know? That J.R. is starting a cosmetic company to rival Fusion?
Lily: It's not a cosmetic company, it's a beauty network. That's what I heard him tell Ava before her appendectomy.
Hannah: So what are you thinking?
Zach: I'm thinking Junior, the entrepreneur, might just be the ticket to get Greenlee out of town.
Kendall: "Greenlee, what do you think? PS -- unless you say it's brilliant, I don't want to know. Kendall." Ha-ha. Ah, I can't believe you kept this. Crazy. Oh, my God -- Simone's rap sheet. "Simone Torres, arrested for hanging Fusion posters all over town. Arrested for prostitution. Arrested for breaking into Pine Valley High School to hang Fusion posters." Crazy girl. God, I miss you. "Simone, don't go. Not yet. Just once come see me in my dreams, so I can wake up and make you laugh for a change. Come see me in my dreams so I can say good-bye." God. How do you do that, Greenlee? How do you get to me, and you're not even here? I can't do this to you. I can't.
Jonathan: I'll take another one.
J.R.: You're scared, Jonny boy, sick and twisted. And don't think for a second that Ava doesn't see that. Don't think she's not using you for your freak of a reputation. And if you don't see that, you're delusional. I just don't think that Ava's aware of how big of a stick of dynamite she's dealing with. Did you tell her that you beat Maggie? That you fed Greenlee antipsychotics? How about the fact you actually kidnapped Greenlee and Kendall and her very own sister? And threatened to kill them? Or how about the one with the bomb in Edmund Grey's coffin? No, rewind that -- you actually did kill Edmund and your brother Braden. And you talked to his decaying corpse for days.
Jonathan: J.R., you better shut the hell up.
J.R.: No, I really think that someone needs to tell Ava this sort of thing. Someone needs to save Ava from your crazy ass. Because all you have is a scary rap sheet and an X-ray of a tumor that m-- m-- m-- made you b-- b-- b-- bad.
Jonathan: This is funny. It is, because now this b-- b-- bad boy -- well, he's the one that's crawling up to, begging him for money.
J.R.: Which really isn't yours. Right? Face it, psycho boy, you have nothing, nothing to offer that girl!
Jonathan: Don't be so sure of that, Junior.
Wes: Ever have a dog?
Babe: Uh -- I dated a few. Does that count?
Wes: Kind of. No, you should really think about getting a dog. Dogs are the best. They're perfect protection for a woman living alone.
Babe: Who do I need protecting from?
Wes: Well, me.
Babe: Oh, thank God. Oh, I had a -- I had a really nice time today.
Wes: Oh. What, it's over? Did I miss something?
Babe: No, I just -- I -- I really had fun. I just wanted to tell you.
Wes: Well, good. Because I really like hanging around you. That is, of course, if you want to see me again.
Babe: I really like hanging around you, too, Wes.
Babe: And yes, I -- I do want to see you again. I just -- you need to remember, I -- I'm not ready to take it beyond anything more than it is right now.
Wes: We can take this as fast or as slow as you like. Ok?
[Wes and Babe kiss]
Ryan: Was that you, Richie, you bastard? Question is, who are you now? Because I know you are too smart to be walking around Pine Valley looking like this.
[Ryan takes the picture of Richie and digitally removes his long hair, beard, and mustache]
Ryan: Is that it, Richie? Is that the look you're going for now? I'm going to find you, Richie.
Greenlee: Ha, ha! Genius -- that's what you should call me. I'm surprised you haven't asked me to quit my job and come work with you full-time.
Aidan: Oh, yeah?
Aidan: Is that right?
Greenlee: That's right.
Aidan: You see, if I had a nickel for every woman that offered to be my partner, I'd be --
Greenlee: You'd have a nickel. There may have been other women, but they weren't like me, honey.
Aidan: Uh-uh-uh. No arguments here, darling.
Greenlee: So good. Genius, me.
Aidan: Why don't we take this someplace less --
Aidan: No, I was thinking a place where the rats aren't -- ha-ha.
Greenlee: Liar. Aidan, come on. Let's get his stuff.
Kendall: Spike had this the night of the accident.
[Kendall recalls that fateful night]
Kendall: Listen, we're going to drive in your car, ok, because you don't have room for Spike in the back seat. You take ours, ok?
Babe: Ok, ok. Let's go. Let's go.
Zach: Greenlee never showed up with Spike.
Kendall: Spike, Spike, Spike -- Greenlee, she took him. She took him, Zach! She took my baby, Zach!
Dr. Norton: I'm sorry. He is deaf.
Jonathan: Thanks for the beers. I'm sorry about your big idea falling flat.
J.R.: It didn't. I do have other backers.
Jonathan: Well, I'd love to hear who, because I'm pretty sure that everybody I know in this town with hefty bank accounts would never do business with you.
Zach: Hey, Junior, let me ask you something. Did you really think you could go after Fusion and Kendall without me finding out?
J.R.: It doesn't matter. My idea is dead in the water.
Zach: What if I told you it doesn't have to be?
Kendall: You stupid, selfish, hateful bitch. You will not hurt my family again. You will not.
[Kendall hears Aidan and Greenlee approaching]
Aidan: Hey, come here.
Greenlee: Hey, Aidan, I have to -- I have to wash this -- please, I have to wash this stuff off. Come on.
Aidan: Ok, fine.
Annie: What are you doing? Oh, my God. That's Richie. That's my brother.
Babe: I could really learn to like you.
Wes: Yeah? Well, take your time. I don't plan on going anywhere.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
J.R. (to Zach): You can't give Greenlee Ryan, and you can't give Greenlee Ryan's kid. Or can you?
Jonathan (to Ava): Be my wife.
Annie (to Ryan): We're here safe on this island, and Emma and Spike are back in Pine Valley with Richie.
Wes (to Emma's picture): Hello, little Emma. I'm your Uncle Richie.
