Kendall: You hurt my baby, Greenlee. He is damaged forever, and so are we. There is no love. There is no warmth. There is nothing. You understand me? You and I -- we're nothing. And I will kill you before I ever let you touch my son again.
Zach: Kendall -- who are you talking to?
Kendall: Um -- Green-- Greenlee. I mean, not really Greenlee. Yes, I was, right. Obviously, I wasn't talking to Greenlee, I just -- I happened to bump into her at the hospital, and seeing her just -- it -- it really shook me up, and everything came back -- the accident and -- and Spike losing his hearing, and -- and Ian being born too early, everything. And -- and I was -- I was furious. So I came here so I can, you know, let it all out and let off some steam.
Kendall: So -- so -- so what you walked in on was -- you walked in on me venting.
Zach: Come here.
Kendall: You want to go see what Daddy's got?
Zach: Hi. Are you sure that's all it is?
Annie: Richie, wait. I give up. You win.
Richie: I win? I win? Today I lied in court to protect you, so the man you married wouldn't have to suffer the way I did. Years in prison, Annie, separated from the people he loves, his family. I did that for you, sis, so don't you tell me that I win. You win big. Just say -- thank you.
Annie: I can't do this anymore. I don't have the energy. I mean, we're -- we're still family, Richie. We can't keep going on fighting and hating each other.
Richie: I don't hate you. I've never hated you. This is all in your head.
Annie: Maybe you're right. But I still need you to prove it.
Richie: Prove it? I think I did a pretty valiant effort today with the DA.
Annie: Ok, I don't know what that was, Richie. I just need to believe that you actually care about me.
Richie: But you don't.
Annie: You said you came to Pine Valley to try to reach out to me. Well, I -- I want to give you a chance to do that.
Richie: Ok, name it.
Annie: I think we need to spend some more time together alone, to get past this.
Richie: Oh. Well, that's a -- that's a lovely gesture, but I am pretty sure the husband won't go for it.
Annie: Well, Ryan's going to be away most of tonight on business. Why don't you come over for dinner?
Richie: So when did you start living dangerously?
Annie: Will you come?
Richie: Yeah. Yeah, you know I will.
Annie: Ok. Well, give me some time to go to the store and start dinner, then.
Richie: Not a problem. Huh. Thanks, sis, for this invitation. It's -- it's a long time coming.
Kendall: I'm just strung-out, that's all. I told you, seeing Greenlee at the hospital just put me right over the edge. But I am fine now. Mm-hmm. Really, I am. Well, what -- tell me -- tell me what happened with -- with Aidan and Ryan.
Zach: Well, Annie's brother didn't testify, so they walked.
Kendall: That's great.
Zach: Maybe it's great, yeah. Want this?
Kendall: Yeah, what, do you think he still has something else planned?
Zach: Well, if I were Ryan, I'd watch my back. "Ah" -- you're getting big, kid.
Kendall: You can talk to him. I mean, just tell him.
Zach: Yeah, I think he knows.
Kendall: I don't know. Ryan has not been himself lately. He -- he actually asked Greenlee to look after Annie. That's how not himself he is.
Zach: Yeah, well, I guess he was desperate.
Kendall: Do you think that everyone will make me go easy on Greenlee, now that Ryan is?
Zach: You don't owe that woman anything.
Kendall: Yeah, but I do have to see her every day at work.
Zach: And I was going to talk to you about that. How about starting another business. You know, one that Greenlee isn't involved in at all. How about that?
Kendall: No, no, I'm not going to give up Fusion. I'm not going to let Greenlee take over a business that I built and love.
Zach: This is not about her right now, it's about you and your happiness.
Kendall: I am happy.
Kendall: I am. I'm telling you, I am. I've got you and Spike and Ian. I'm happy. And this whole thing with Greenlee -- I'm going to deal with this my way. And I think it's just a matter of time before we all put this behind us. And it can't be soon enough for me.
Greenlee: Well, I'm --
Greenlee: You know, I'm sure Fusion can survive without me, and I'll just keep checking in.
Aidan: Yeah. It's going to be hard work, though, tracing every step Richie Novak ever made. But I do want to see how many skeletons I can shake loose.
Greenlee: Skeletons metaphorical, or skeletons, skeletons, as in "I was once alive, but now I'm just some dried-up, crusty --"
Aidan: You're not going to wuss out on me, are you?
Greenlee: No, me? No, I mean, seriously, what are we talking about here? Are we --
Aidan: I'm talking about dead bodies.
Aidan: I'm going to let you in on a little secret, Greenlee. The dead ones don't hurt you.
Greenlee: I'm not -- I'm not worried about me getting hurt. I was maybe just a little concerned about you, you big jerk.
Aidan: I know that you stayed up all night while Ryan and I were in jail. And I also know that you convinced Jack to take our case. And I want to say a big thank-you.
Greenlee: You're welcome.
Singer: To be young forever more listen to the sound of your heart second ♪
[Aidan kisses Greenlee]
Singer: We miss the strangest things here things that I wish I had not seen but all I want is ♪
Adam: I'm sorry, son. But that look in your face -- it's not a "we're in the money" look. You couldn't get your network off the ground, huh?
J.R.: We're not only off the ground, we're skyrocketing.
Adam: You got a backer?
J.R.: Well, don't seem so surprised. Half the seed money's in. The other half's on its way. We should be up and running in no time.
Adam: Well, I guess I underestimated you.
J.R.: Hmm. Wouldn't be the first time.
Adam: But there's something on your mind. Something's bothering you. I'm genuinely proud of you, son. To get the money to back what sounds like a really great idea.
J.R.: I'm beginning to think that you were right. I built this great idea on the wrong girl.
Adam: I hate to say "I told you so."
J.R.: Oh, you'd love to say you told me so.
Adam: Yeah, well, what has she done now?
J.R.: I chose Ava because she was wild and controversial and not afraid to be a pain in the ass in the name of publicity. But now, it's -- she's on the verge of -- insane.
Adam: Maybe I don't want to know.
J.R.: She wants to marry Jonathan Lavery. Can you believe that?
Adam: Well, actually, yes, I can.
J.R.: I mean, come on, Dad. Why would she want to spend the rest of her life with some lunatic killer?
Adam: When she could spend it with you?
Adam: Oh, come on. You're sleeping with that little tramp, aren't you?
J.R.: No! Almost.
Adam: Oh, almost? Huh. What the hell does that mean? What?
Maitre d': Right this way.
Ava: Um, is there any way we could get, like, a table by the water or something? Just very romantic and private?
Jonathan: Huh? Uh-uh. No, no, no, we just got engaged, and I want everyone to see this gorgeous woman right here is going to be my beautiful bride.
[Annie bends down to pick up her keys and gasps when Richie appears behind her]
Richie: Thought I'd get here a little early, just in case you thought you had any wild ideas about making this meal my last.
Zach: We all want things to get back to normal.
Zach: It's going to take a little while. You just got to have faith.
Kendall: Hmm. That's not easy.
Zach: I know. We've been through a lot.
Kendall: And if we get the cochlear implant surgery --
Zach: "If"? What do you mean, "if"?
Kendall: I'm --
Zach: You having second thoughts?
Kendall: No, I'm just -- I'm a little apprehensive.
Zach: And that's normal, but what are you saying? I mean --
Kendall: I'm just saying that, Zach, he --
Kendall: Spike is -- he's so small. He's already been through so much. And -- and now, this means more surgery on his tiny little head.
Zach: Hey, look at him. He's going to be ok. I know you're scared, and I'm scared, too. But you got to remember how good those doctors are and how strong he is. And how great this is going to be. He's going to hear again. A couple of years ago, he didn't even have that option.
Kendall: Yeah, and if Greenlee hadn't come back to town --
Zach: Don't do that.
Kendall: Then --
Zach: Stop. You'll drive yourself crazy.
Kendall: But I can't help it. I can't. I can't get it out of my head that none of this would have happened if --
Kendall: If it weren't for her. This is all her fault.
Zach: Hey, hey, hey, hey. How about a cup of tea?
Kendall: I don't need any tea.
Zach: How about a cup of tea?
Kendall: Do you want me to have some tea?
Kendall: I'll have some tea. Tea sounds good.
Kendall: I'll do it.
Adam: You're not sleeping with Ava, but you're what? What, messing around, fooling around? Is that what you call it nowadays?
J.R.: It's not going to happen again.
Adam: Oh -- yeah, yeah. You're going to end up -- wind up in bed with that drug-addled bimbo.
J.R.: I am not. Can we just -- can we just drop this?
Adam: No. No, we can't just drop it. There are more people than just the two of you involved. Need I remind you that Ava's fiancÚ thinks nothing about killing people in cold blood, and then crying "brain tumor" to escape punishment?
Ava: It just happened really fast, you know?
Jonathan: What -- what happened really fast?
Ava: Us. The whole marriage thing. I mean, I -- I can understand if you don't want to go through with it.
Jonathan: Where is this coming from?
Ava: I'm just saying, I -- I'd be cool with it if that's what you wanted to do. Or not do.
Jonathan: I proposed to you. It was my idea.
Ava: I know, but did you really know what you were asking me? I mean, if I was you, I wouldn't marry me.
Jonathan: Something happened.
Jonathan: Yeah. This is too out of left field.
Ava: It's just -- I think you deserve better than me. Someone that would be respected and respectful and nice. Someone like Lily. I'm just not any of those things, and I never will be.
Richie: Fried chicken, creamed corn -- my favorite.
Annie: I remember.
Richie: So why did you go to all this trouble?
Annie: I told you. I wanted us to spend some time alone.
Richie: Ahem. Oh, come on. You didn't do all this just to talk.
Annie: I guess it's way of asking for forgiveness. I made a huge mistake, Richie. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would have been honest. You know I would.
Richie: That would make life easier, wouldn't it? I forgive you, we both move on. Hmm.
Annie: My husband and my daughter are everything to me. And I have a stepson that I adore. I'm not asking you for anything, Richie. Just -- just let me live my life.
Richie: "Life" -- yeah, that's a great word. I love that word. I can't remember the last time I had one. But that's all going to change. I everything you can offer me. Mmm. That is good. You have finally done Mom proud.
[Outside, Ryan holds a small gun in his hands]
Jonathan: Let's not do this, ok? Let's not tell each other about how bad we were. All right? Let's -- let's -- let's be excited that we found each other, that we -- we fell in love, and that we're getting married.
Ava: So, you're really excited about marrying me?
Jonathan: Are you kidding? I cannot wait for us to start a life together. Ava, this is our fresh start. Ok? There's no more watching from the sidelines now. We get to be happy. We deserve, you and I, to be happy.
Singer: It's too late how do we turn this back? ♪
Jonathan: I guess that means I convinced you?
Ava: You're so nice to me. You're too nice. You put so much faith in me.
Singer: Where do we go from here? ♪
Jonathan: What's going on? Really, what's going on? Because there's something bothering you, and it's more than cold feet.
Singer: How do we turn this back? ♪
Ava: It's about J.R. and me.
J.R.: Don't worry about Jonathan Lavery coming after me, ok? He's not going to find out what happened between -- almost happened between Ava and me. It's never going to happen again -- most likely.
Adam: Huh -- "most likely"?
J.R.: What I mean is it won't, and if it did, it wouldn't mean anything between Ava and me, you know?
Adam: Ah, ah, yes, now you sound like an idiot.
J.R.: Oh, come on, Dad.
Adam: You know, there -- why don't you get someone else to do this for you? There are a million pretty girls out there.
J.R.: Yeah, but not like Ava. She's got this --
Adam: "She's got --" she's just enough to get you into real trouble. It's like that -- that -- that high you have when you're taking a woman to bed just for the fun of it.
J.R.: Ok. This is getting a little weird.
Adam: Yeah, well, trust me. I've been there.
J.R.: No, please. Can't we just change the subject?
Adam: No, no! It -- it -- it never lasts, and you end up coming down hard. Now, that woman is either going to be a stalker for the rest of her life, trying to get you down the aisle --
J.R.: Or get you drunk off your butt and marry you before you ever have a chance to take her to bed?
Adam: Don't you compare your little grope-fest with that junkie to my relationship with Krystal.
J.R.: And busted. You still love Krystal.
Singer: Tell me what's on your mind ♪
Aidan: The tickets are booked. We leave in four hours. So that should give us enough time to get packed.
Singer: Played back in Philly comin' to San Antone ♪
Greenlee: Did you see that?
Aidan: See what?
Greenlee: That woman smiled at me.
Aidan: She smiled at you?
Greenlee: So? I mean, since -- since everything that happened with Spike, people either give me dirty looks or glare at me. I mean, I -- I don't think anyone's even giving me a dirty look here.
Aidan: Tell me, Greenlee, how does it feel to shed the label as town pariah?
Greenlee: Oh. Well, thank you, Aidan, it feels great, but you know, I -- I can't take all the credit myself. I owe part of my amazing transformation to --
Greenlee: My good friend Aidan Devane.
Singer: Playin' on the radio ♪
Greenlee: Ever since the paramedics carried my body over the rocks, he was there. And when I needed to tell someone exactly what I had done, and no one wanted to listen, Aidan listened. When I drove my car off the road, I lost every friend I ever had. But in that moment, I also made a new friend. You. You are the only one who --
Aidan: Hey, look -- hey, listen. If you shed a tear in here, you're going to ruin your reputation as a tough girl, so watch it.
Greenlee: Thank you, Aidan. Thank you for not hating me, and thank you for taking time to get to know me.
Aidan: It's my pleasure.
Singer: Dance this dance yeah ♪
Kendall: Ok, Binks, I got to go. Yes, please give Miranda a big kiss for me. Ok. Love you. Bye. Bianca says hello.
Kendall: Hi. And -- oh. Thank you for my tea. And something's wrong.
Zach: A problem with one of the plants. I got to go to the office and deal with it. I'm sorry.
Kendall: Oh. It's all right.
Zach: Are you all right?
Kendall: I'm fine.
Zach: No more talking to the wall, ok?
Kendall: Ok, no more talking to the wall, and I will try to vent in a much more constructive manner.
Kendall: Ok. Hmm.
Kendall: All right. Hmm. "Guess what, Spikey. I saw a T-shirt on a little boy today that said 'Worth the wait.' I'm going to find one of those just for you. Because as much as I hate waiting to have you in my arms, you're worth it. You're my world, sweet Spike. Your real mommy loves you. I can't wait until you're mine again."
Richie: I have got to get this recipe. Hmm.
Annie: Ok, you've made your point, Richie. You're not through with me yet. So just tell me what it is you want. I've already offered you money, my freedom.
Richie: What do I want? That is a great question. I've been thinking about that ever since you came by the hospital and asked me. And I think I just came up with something.
Richie: When you lied on that stand, you took seven years of my life away from me and made me spend them in hell. I'm going to take seven years away from your life. And then we'll be even.
Annie: I don't even know what you're talking about, Richie. You can't "take" seven years of my life.
Richie: I could find a way.
Annie: Ryan's not going to let anything happen to me. He's not even going to let you come near me.
Richie: And yet here I am, eating off his plates, kicking back in his couch. Don't get mad, sis, but that husband of yours -- he is lacking in the protector department.
Annie: If he knew that you were here, if he knew that we were even having this conversation right now, he would -- I don't even know what he would do. I'm serious, Richie. I've never seen Ryan like this before. It's like a switch has been flipped, and he -- he's consumed with rage, and I don't want --
Richie: What? You don't want what -- anything bad to happen to your little brother? Hmm.
Annie: To anyone, Richie.
Richie: No. You just don't want anything bad to happen to that sweet but "totally" ineffectual husband of yours. Annie, you should've seen it -- when his friend put that noose around my neck, oh, I thought he was going to die of a heart attack!
Annie: You wish you were half the man my husband is.
Richie: Why? Because a real man -- he makes threats he has no intentions of backing up? Big talk, no action.
Annie: What do you know about being a man? What do you know about taking care of a family or loving somebody? You're not a man, Richie. And the people in this town -- they're on to you. They're going to know who you are and -- and what you're capable of, and when they do, you're going to get what's coming to you.
Richie: What's coming to me? You put me away for damn near a decade -- what else do you want? Do you want me dead? Do you want to put a bullet right between my eyes -- is that what you want? Well, good luck.
Annie: Where are you going?
Richie: Thanks for the meal. I'm not going to make dessert. Give mine to Emma and tell her Uncle Richie will see her soon.
Annie: No. I'm not through with you yet.
Greenlee: Aidan, I really have to go home and pack.
Aidan: Oh. All right. Well, I'll take you home, then. But do you really have to pack?
Greenlee: Yeah -- yes. Yes -- no! Ok, no, I don't. Yes, I do -- yes, yes, yes, eventually.
Aidan: Ahem -- all right. I'll tell you what -- you -- you start the car, I'll get the bill. All right?
Greenlee: Deal. Yep.
Greenlee: Oh. Kendall? Hi.
Kendall: Hi. Is this a bad time?
Greenlee: No, no, not at all. Uh -- what's up?
Kendall: Well, I was just thinking about what you said -- um, about us spending more time together, and I think you're right. So, Zach is gone for a while, and I thought, uh, do you want to meet?
Greenlee: Well, I mean, Aidan and I -- we were maybe going to go out weeks. I was actually going to see if you could cover for me at Fusion.
Kendall: Really? Oh -- sure, ok. Uh -- well, that -- that should be fun for you guys. Uh -- you know what? Just forget about this phone call, ok? It's -- it's probably way too soon, I mean, to -- to push this whole friendship thing.
Greenlee: No, no -- I really want to see you.
Kendall: Some other time. We'll talk when you get back, or -- or after the holidays. If you can wait that long.
Greenlee: Why does everything have to be so difficult?
Adam: I no more love Krystal than I love -- that woman over there.
J.R.: That's not a woman, Dad.
Adam: Well, you know what I mean.
J.R.: Right, right, right. You don't love your ex. I got it. So, how are you going to win Krystal back?
J.R.: Do you got to keep on posing as Uncle Stuart, you going to bag the argyle and show up at her place as yourself for a change, or what? I don't --
Adam: Yeah, you think this is funny?
J.R.: Well -- it pretty much qualifies as funny, yeah.
Adam: Well, hold the smirk, ok? Hold the smirk and -- and try to -- try to latch on to the lesson at hand. It's never a good idea to combine business with romance. Now, you are going after and getting what you claim that you want. That's your business created by you. And so your name -- not your father's name -- your name is going to be on the map, and you can have any woman on the planet. Just don't fool around with one that'll bring down your dream.
Ava: Well, so, you know those little kids who point in the shop window and point at the shiny new things and say, "I want that, I want that"? Well, that's me.
Jonathan: You want all these things. But I want you to have them. I want all of your dreams to come true -- even if it's going to involve a jerk like J.R.
Ava: Well, it's not jerks "like" J.R. It's -- well, J.R. is the problem. God, you're going to hate me for this.
Jonathan: He raised the money for the network, didn't he?
Ava: Yeah, he did.
Jonathan: You know what? It's cool. I still think the guy's a jackass personally, but if this is what you want, if this is what you want, then I can deal, ok? No, we will find a way to deal with J.R. together.
Annie: I didn't want to get sucked back into a fight with you, Richie. I don't want it to be like this. We didn't always hate each other.
Richie: I used to think that was true.
Annie: Life was hard for me growing up -- maybe I brought it on myself. But I finally have the life that I've always wanted. Look -- look. Look -- look at them. My husband, my daughter, look at -- look at their smiles. They're happy, and I've made them happy. I've built a beautiful life for myself. I know you don't think that I deserve it, but I am begging you not to take it from me.
Richie: You sound just like Mom when she begged you not to ruin my life, not to testify against me, not to lie to that jury. Those were the last things she asked you, right, and what did you do? You spit in her face. So now it's my turn. We'll just call this payback -- for Mom.
Annie: Ok, just please don't walk out, Richie. Give me a chance to -- to explain, to make it up to you.
Richie: You can't. You never will.
Annie: I'm sorry. I -- I thought if Richie and I talked, just the two of us, we could work things out.
Ryan: "Work things out"? With him -- are you crazy?
Richie: Sounds like you two have a lot to work out so --
Ryan: No, you're the one I got to work things out with. I'm kind of thinking -- about what I'm going to do with you, how I'm going to get rid of you, for good.
Richie: Well, don't leave me in suspense.
Ryan: Wasn't going to.
[Ryan pulls a small gun out and holds it in his left hand]
Aidan: Looks like Kendall upset you.
Aidan: Did she?
Greenlee: No, no, no, no. I'm -- I'm not upset. I'm just -- I'm torn. She wants to meet up and, you know, we're supposed to leave soon.
Aidan: So, what does she want to see you about?
Greenlee: Our secret pact -- remember? We're not telling anyone, but we're trying to work through things.
Aidan: And still, nobody knows but you two?
Greenlee: Well, nobody would understand, especially Zach, and I guess maybe he's not around now or --
Aidan: Huh. You know, this -- this whole thing with you and Kendall, it's just a little -- it's a little strange, you know?
Greenlee: Aidan, please don't judge me. I need it. I -- I miss her.
Aidan: All right. Fine. So, what now?
Greenlee: Would you hate me if I stuck around here for a few days more?
Aidan: If you want to ditch the trip, that's fine, all right? But still, you reuniting with Kendall on the sly is -- strikes me as a bit weird.
Greenlee: No, I know it sounds and seems strange. We -- Kendall and I, we've always been like this. Our friendship has never been conventional.
Aidan: Yeah, but it's also never been a secret, either.
Greenlee: Don't give me a hard time. I mean, you more than anyone knows how important this is to me.
Kendall: Come on, come on. Come on.
Kendall: Ah. Hey. I thought you left.
Greenlee: No. Um -- actually, I decided to hold off. I -- I can catch up with Aidan later.
Kendall: Are you sure?
Greenlee: Absolutely. So, where do you want to meet?
Kendall: In the park -- 15 minutes?
Greenlee: Ok. I'll be there. I really want this.
Kendall: We've got her.
J.R.: You're acting like Ava's the one who's got all the power, and it's not so, and she knows it. I've got it all under control.
Adam: I hope you're right, son.
J.R.: I'll get this one tonight, Dad.
Singer: Listen to me ♪
Adam: I'm very proud of you, J.R. -- getting that project financed. Just be careful.
Singer: And I know it's true you tell me you'll be there for me and I believe you you show me your love ♪
Maitre d': Right this way, Mr. Slater.
Singer: Of it all I know I stand alone ♪
Jonathan: What's wrong now?
Ava: It's just I've never been in -- in love like this, you know -- like where it really counts?
Jonathan: What? I mean, it -- it makes you sad?
Ava: I just don't think I'm very good at it.
Jonathan: Ava, come here. You make me happy, and that's everything, ok?
Ava: Yeah, until I make you unhappy. God, I would just hate myself.
[Jonathan kisses Ava]
Singer: And see it in my mind today is a goldmine to me ♪
Zach: What's the latest on Greenlee?
J.R.: I was starting to make some headway until this Richie Novak situation hit the fan. Now Greenlee's focus is on that.
Zach: Redirect her focus. I want that woman away from my wife. You know how to make it happen, so do it.
[Adam eavesdrops on Zach and J.R.]
Singer: You tell me you'll be there for me and I believe you ♪
[Greenlee meets Kendall and Spike in the park]
Annie: Ryan? Put the gun away, please.
Ryan: It's the answer. Annie, I've thought about this a lot. This is the only way.
Annie: No, Ryan --
Ryan: It's the only way.
Annie: Please don't do this. You'll go to jail, and you'll get taken from me and the kids.
Ryan: At least I know you'll all be safe.
Annie: No -- Ryan, no.
[Just as Ryan is about to shoot Richie, Annie steps in front of him, grabs the gun, takes a bullet to the stomach, and collapses her on the floor]
Annie: Oh, oh! Oh!
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam (to Hannah): I will tell the world who you are, what you are, and what you've done. I promise that's not going to be pretty.
Greenlee (to Kendall): You still hate me, don't you?
Ryan (to Richie): You're going down for your sister's murder.
