Jack: Tell me where my daughter is.

Aidan: Derek has all the manpower. Why don't you ask him?

Jack: Aidan, do you have any idea what you've done? There's an APB out on Greenlee. Look, you -- you want her brought back safe? Her best bet is to turn herself in. Now, if you -- I'm begging you here. Please help us.

Aidan: What -- help her what, Jack? Put her in prison? Locked up in a 4-by-8 hellhole? That's the last place she's going to be safe, and you know it.

Greenlee: Oh, my God. Oh, God.

[Greenlee pants as she runs through the woods and falls]

Greenlee: Oh -- oh, my God. Oh, my -- ow! Oh! Oh! Oh, my God. Damn it! Ow.

Jonathan: Easy, boy.

Ryan: Look, we got to make up some ground if we want to get to Brennan's place before Richie does, all right? He's got, like, what, a half-hour lead on us?

Jonathan: He does, yes, if he left right after he hacked the e-mail Tommy wrote you.

Ryan: Richie finds out that his old Boy Scout buddy is going to point him out for murder, what do you think he's going to do, just sit back and wait?

Jonathan: He's going to want to shut his little Boy Scout buddy up.

Ryan: Which is exactly what's going to happen if we don't get there before Richie does.

Kendall: Sorry, guys. Mama's a bit frazzled right now.

Erica: Kendall, hi. Have you heard something? Has Zach called?

Kendall: No, no, I have not heard from him, Mom, and I am worried sick. Josh has been helping me. We -- we've been calling everyone we could possibly think of, and nothing.

Erica: Well, Kendall, honey, you know, Zach really hasn't been gone all that long. I'm sure there can be any number of explanations as to where he is.

Lily: I know where Zach is.

Kendall: Oh, thank God.

Erica: Where is he, Lily?

Lily: Zach went to Paradise.

[The engine revs as Richie's speeding car approaches Zach who's standing on the side of the road. With tires screeching, J.R.'s car swerves as Richie hits Zach then backs up to check him out.]

Richie: Whoa. Sorry, man. You don't look so good. Say, don't I know you? Or I knew you, anyway. I don't think you're going to make it.

[Greenlee pants as she runs then stops to rest by a tree]

Greenlee: What's the matter, you can't keep up with a girl? I can't believe I am being hunted down like an ax murderer because everybody turned on me.

Kendall's voice: I could never be friends with you. You're delusional.

Ryan's voice: You're obsessed.

Kendall: Even you said that you couldn't believe a mother would forgive the woman who made her son deaf.

Erica: Must make you very unhappy, too, to be such a complete and utter disaster. To know that you've made so many people suffer and that so many people hate you.

Zach: What do you want? I know you're not here to torture my wife. You wouldn't be that stupid.

Erica: Stop interfering and leave them alone! You leave my family alone!

Kendall: It was always going to end this way, Greenlee, because you just couldn't leave us alone. And now, you are finally going to pay.

Aidan: Greenlee, I will come back for you no matter where you are.

Greenlee: I don't want to let you go.

Aidan: It's just for a little while, ok? I promise. Believe me when I say that I'm going to get you out of this.

Greenlee: I believe you, Aidan, but feel free to catch up at any time.

Jack: Aidan, if you know a way for us to get to Greenlee before some trigger-happy cop or some vigilante does, then you need to tell me. Or I'm telling you, Derek's going to put your butt in a jail cell, too.

Aidan: Well, the last time I checked, you needed proof to do something like that.

Jack: Oh.

Derek: That courtroom has security cameras. Somebody dressed like a fireman threw Greenlee over his shoulder and took her out during all the commotion.

[Aidan whistles]

Aidan: Well -- you know, I've got a big resume, Derek, but fireman is not on that list.

Derek: Enough with the games, Devane, we all know it was you.

Aidan: I want to find Greenlee as much as you do, all right?

Derek: Then tell me something. When you were at that convenience store earlier, why didn't you ask the clerk if he'd seen her anywhere? Unless you already knew where she was. He ID'd you when you ran off. How do you think we found you?

Officer: There's no sign of her so far.

[Derek sighs]

Derek: Fan out and keep looking. That storm hits, it'll wash away any tracks and put us back to square one.

Lily: Paradise is the name of a home out in the country. Zach saw it on my screensaver, and he really liked it. He went to go look at it. He wants to buy it for you. He said he wanted to take you there.

Kendall: Oh. Well, that -- that explains why he came by here.

Erica: Exactly. You see, honey? He wasn't angry at all at you anymore.

Kendall: Yeah, he must have just wanted to go there on his own when he couldn't find me.

Erica: Thank you again, Lily.

Lily: Well, I didn't do anything.

Erica: Yes, you did. You solved the mystery, and you put Kendall's mind at ease.

Kendall: Lily, you look beautiful. You're all dressed up.

Lily: I was supposed to have a coffee date, but he never showed up.

Erica: A date?

Lily: Yes, with Richard. I waited an hour after our arranged meeting time. There must have been a miscommunication.

Erica: Oh. I'm so sorry.

Lily: And this was the last place I saw him, so I figured I would come here and look for him.

Kendall: No luck?

Lily: I wasn't looking for luck. Statistically, this is the best place to find him.

Erica: You know what, Lily? This Richard person -- he missed out on a great opportunity, whoever he was.

[Richie takes Zach's money]

Richie: Well, you can't take it with you, right?

Zach: I need help.

Richie: Well, good luck with that.

Zach: Please.

Richie: You're right. I can't just leave you here.

[Richie sighs and grunts as he removes his leather jacket and throws it in his car]

Richie: Could you try not to bleed on my new sweater, please?

[Richie sighs and groans as he places Zach inside his car, then takes a picture of J.R., Babe, and Little Adam out of the glove compartment and plants it under Zach's car tire]

Richie: Don't worry, buddy. I'll take care of you.

[Car starts]

Automated voice: The Lexus Lynx System is active.

Kendall: Why isn't Zach picking up? I was hoping he'd still be at the house, so I could meet him there.

Erica: Lily, do you know where this house is located?

Lily: Yes, it's in Kenmare Village. I looked up the directions when I was waiting for Richard.

Erica: Oh, honey, the phone service in Kenmare Village -- it's really terrible. I mean, no wonder you can't reach Zach.

Kendall: Is there something else, Lily?

Lily: It's just that realtors don't usually show houses at this time of night, and if Zach just went to look, and you calculate the distance, he should be back in Pine Valley by now.

Kendall: Or at least somewhere where I can reach him. Come on, Zach, where are you?

Erica: Listen, honey, maybe the owner was there, and he's showing Zach around.

Kendall: No, you know what? I don't have time -- time to wait. Lily, do you know where the -- could I have the address, please?

Lily: Yes, it's 39 Paradise Lane. You can take Highway 4 --

Kendall: It's ok, it's all right, I'll find it. Mom, can you stay here with the boys? I've got to go find Zach.

Erica: No, no, no, no, no, I'm going with you.

Kendall: No, it's ok. It's not necessary.

Erica: I insist. Josh, hi. It's -- it's Erica. Josh, do you think you could come back to neonatal and help Lily watch after Spike and Ian? Because Kendall and I think we know where Zach is.

Zach: You get a hospital.

Richie: Oh, sorry, buddy. We'd never make it in time. Besides, I'm already late.

Zach: Here, call my wife.

Richie: Well, I've got a better idea.

[Richie opens the passenger door and shoves Zach out of the car without even slowing down]

Richie: That might do it, you see.

Ryan: This is what's going to happen. If we get there before Richie does, we got to haul Tommy out of there, and we got to get him someplace safe, someplace that Derek can come in and question him.

Jonathan: That's going to be the easy part. The hard part's going to be collecting enough evidence for the arrest. This cannot be Tommy's word against Richie's.

Ryan: No, I realize that, Jonathan, but it sounds like Tommy has some real serious hard evidence here, and once we get that evidence, then we can nail Richie.

Jonathan: I hope Tommy comes through.

Ryan: He has to come through, Jonathan, all right? He has to. I have tried everything else.

Jonathan: Ryan, take it easy.

Ryan: I got to bring this guy down, and I got to keep him down, or my family is not going to have any peace.

[Ryan sighs]

Jonathan: If Tommy doesn't come through, there is another way.

Ryan: Jonathan, don't even go there, all right?

Jonathan: I could make him disappear.

Ryan: What did I just say?

Jonathan: I'm not talking about killing him, Ryan. Listen to me for a second. Richie's dying already, right? I could just take him somewhere, just let nature run its course. Ryan, I could take him someplace where he could never get to our family again.

[Knock on door]

Tommy: Who's there?

Richie: Ryan Lavery. Or not. Is that any way to treat a fellow Scout? Come on.

Tommy: Hey. Long time, Richie.

Richie: Not as long as you wanted to send me away, right, Tommy?

Tommy: I don't -- I don't know what you're talking about.

Richie: Sure you do. You've been playing pen pal with my brother-in-law. I sort of came across one of the e-mails. Something about you thinking I murdered Jay Banachek.

Tommy: How did you -- how'd you find me?

Richie: I smelled fear, Tommy, and I followed it here. Are you -- are you afraid of something?

Tommy: You know, you shouldn't be here because Lavery's on his way.

Richie: You think so? I don't think he got that e-mail. So what do you say, Tommy, huh? What do you say? You think maybe we should have a reunion, just the two of us? Hmm? What do you think?

Derek: The more you let this get out of hand, the worse it's going to get, Devane. Is that what you want?

Aidan: Greenlee is innocent.

Derek: Well, if you're so sure of that, why don't you bring her in? Have her build a case, instead of pleading guilty.

Aidan: You know, I've got a better idea. Why don't you stop wasting your time going after Greenlee and go after who's really guilty here, huh? Have you checked into Kendall's little fairy tale about how all this went down? Have you questioned Zach? Have you questioned Kendall? Have you compared their two little stories? Have you found out how that silly little program was used to plant that diary on their hard drives? Have you done any of that?

Derek: You don't know when to quit, do you?

Aidan: No, but obviously, you do, Derek. You just can't wait to close the book on this case, so you can go home for your turkey dinner.

Derek: I make you a material witness, your thanksgiving's going to be prison rations. You want that?

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa -- Derek, as Aidan's attorney --

Derek: His attorney? I bring you along as a courtesy, and now you're turning on me?

Jack: I'm not turning on you, I'm trying to save my daughter's life. Listen to me. Listen, listen, listen. Just give me some time alone with him. Let me find out what he knows, ok? Please, just give me some time.

Derek: You better not be playing me, counselor.

Jack: All right, just -- just -- let me do this, Derek, please?

Derek: You're on thin ice, Devane. You, too.

Jack: Yeah. Got it.

Derek: Don't make me regret this.

Jack: I won't. This had better be good.

Aidan: I told you, Jack. I'm not going to stand by --

Jack: Yeah.

Aidan: And let Greenlee go to prison, all right?

Jack: Yeah, Aidan, I know all that. I also know that the stuffed toy that I saw on the floor here that I had to shove under the couch before Derek saw it belongs to Greenlee, which means she was here with you at some point. Look, I got my neck stuck so far out on this. I need you to be straight with me, so I'm going to ask you one more time, damn it. Where's my daughter?

Greenlee: Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh, my God!

[Greenlee takes a tumble as she's running and finds Zach]

Greenlee: What the hell happened to you? What -- oh, my God. Zach, what -- what -- what are you even doing out here? Uh -- hey! Wake up! Zach. Snap out of it. I can't believe I am running for my life out here and what are you doing -- playing bounty hunter? Zach? Zach! I -- I -- I can't believe I am going to help you after what you put me through, after what you continue to put me through. Oh, great. No signal. All right, listen. God knows why, but if I find a phone that's working, I will call for help. I can't stick around here with you.

Aidan: Greenlee was being railroaded, Jack, pure and simple. I had to do something.

Jack: Yeah, but I asked you not to do anything crazy, Aidan. I mean, you have to know the way she fled that courtroom makes her look more guilty, right?

Aidan: She felt like the walls were closing in on her, Jack. You know how she gets when that happens.

Jack: Yes, yes. I know she's claustrophobic, but I also know, Aidan, she could've survived that if she had just let me build a damn case.

Aidan: Look, she couldn't wait, all right, for due process -- no bail, stuffed back in a cell every day after a trial that could've gone on for -- for God knows how long, right? She never would've made it. We had to do something.

Jack: "We"? "We"? You're telling me Greenlee was in on this?

Aidan: She fired you, all right, plea-bargained without you to keep your hands clean, so you wouldn't run the risk of being disbarred.

Jack: That was my decision to make. So let me see if I've got this right here. You -- you -- this whole plea bargaining thing was just a ploy to get her into the courtroom?

Aidan: Well, better odds than a jailbreak.

Jack: How stupid are you? How stupid are you, Aidan? That bailiff was armed -- somebody could've gotten killed!

Aidan: It's the only way I saw, Jack.

Jack: Oh, ok, well, then, gosh. So where does that leave us?

[Jack chuckles]

Jack: I mean, you haven't even told me where Greenlee is yet.

Aidan: I'm afraid by now, she's across state line on her way to Canada. I have friends up there that will take very good care of her, all right?

Jack: Wait -- until?

Aidan: Until we find proof that Kendall set her up.

Erica: Well, if Zach was thinking of a place to get away from it all now and then, this would be it.

Kendall: Yeah, it is in the middle of nowhere, isn't it?

Erica: Hmm.

Kendall: Kind of romantic, huh?

Erica: Oh, yes. But I can't help but think it has something to do with Greenlee, too.

Kendall: That's a stretch.

Erica: Not really, not when you think about it. I mean, if Greenlee hadn't made life so impossible for everyone since she came back to Pine Valley, I mean, there wouldn't be a need to have to get away at all.

Kendall: Well, Greenlee's the one who's gotten away now.

Erica: Maybe it's for the best. I mean, maybe this time she won't come back. I mean, maybe this time she won't be able to.

Kendall: Because she'd be arrested.

Erica: Exactly.

Kendall: Yeah. Kind of does put a crimp on the most romantic divorce I've ever heard of.

Erica: That's not what I was getting at.

Kendall: Oh, please, Mother. Are you kidding me? Greenlee out of sight, out of mind would be the best thing that could possibly happen to you as far as Jack is concerned.

Erica: You know, Greenlee being away would be the best thing for everyone who is concerned. Why are you being like this?

Kendall: Because, Mother, it won't work. Greenlee being arrested won't fix what's wrong with us here. It'll only make things worse.

Greenlee: You know, the last thing you need right now, Greenlee, is a conscience. I said I would try to find help -- I'm trying ok? Is that a house? It is, it is. Hey, I'm going to leave you over by this house, ok? You happy now?

Ryan: We don't just sit back and let people die, Jonathan. On top of kidnapping? Forget it.

Jonathan: Richie would do it to us, Ryan.

Ryan: Well, I'm not going to let him bring us to his level, ok? I've already done a couple of things that I'm not proud of, and I don't want that to happen again.

Jonathan: This is not about staking out the moral high ground right now, Ryan. This is about protecting your family.

Ryan: Which is what I'm trying to do, ok? And Tommy is the key that is going to put Richie away and make sure this doesn't happen again, and once that's done, then it's over.

Jonathan: Ok, you're right. Now, what if that doesn't work?

Ryan: I am not going to lock the guy up until he dies, Jonathan. That is not going to happen -- that's off the table.

Jonathan: Like I said, Ryan, it wouldn't have to be you. I'm going to do what has to be done, Ryan, I am.

Ryan: No! Just forget it, Hockett, all right? That part of your life is over with, and I'm not -- I'm not going to let you do that. It's going to stay that way -- done.

Jonathan: Obviously you haven't been reading the tabloids, have you? Because according to them, I'm one snap away from going psycho again.

Ryan: Ok, fine. Well, don't believe everything you read, all right? And get it out of your head that I'm going to use you like some kind of hit man. We're going to do this the right way and when it's done, we're going to get our happy, normal lives back.

Jonathan: Huh. Fine, ok. But we both know that Richie has other ideas.

Tommy: Look, Richie, I was just trying to pull a con, you know? When I heard this guy Lavery was fishing around, I just thought I could squeeze him for some money.

Richie: A con?

Tommy: Yeah.

Richie: From a Boy Scout like you? I don't buy it.

Tommy: Richie, I just made something up. I never really saw anything at the lake that summer, I swear.

Richie: That's not how I remember it. How I remember it is when they pulled our friend's body out of that water, you were looking at me. You looked like you knew something, like you seen something.

Tommy: No, Richie, it wasn't like that.

Richie: You told your mom I held that spoiled kid's head under water for something like baseball cards? Like I'd murder somebody like that. I thought we were friends, Tommy, but that really hurt me.

Tommy: I got it wrong.

Richie: That's a thought. That is a thought.

Tommy: Anyway, Richie, it's just my word, you know? I can change my story, and you'll be off the hook, it'll all go away.

Richie: That would be nice, Tommy. That'd be real nice, man. But what do we have here?

Tommy: Oh, it's nothing.

Richie: Looks like you were going to Lavery with more than just your word. You've been a busy boy, Tommy. I mean, I should be flattered. You spend all this time sitting here thinking about me, following a bunch of clues, and it led to some solid evidence -- man.

Tommy: Richie, I can make this all right.

Richie: I forgot how easy it was to hurt kids.

Tommy: You know what? Just take it. There aren't any copies.

Richie: That still leaves you and that big mouth of yours, doesn't it, Tommy?

Jack: Aidan, look, I -- I know you care about Greenlee, I know you want what's best for her.

Aidan: I do care about her, Jack.

Jack: I know that. But sending her off alone on a motorcycle -- what the hell are you thinking about? There is a dragnet looking for her, and I guarantee you some of the people trying to find her don't give a damn what condition she's in when she's finally brought in -- do you understand what I'm saying?

Aidan: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I do. I do, Jack -- I understand, but this is her best shot, all right? That and you helping me prove that she's innocent.

Jack: No, Aidan, I'll tell you what her best shot was -- her best shot was me as lawyer, ok? But you know what? Tough to represent somebody when you don't have any access to them.

[Door closes]

Derek: You want to explain those two motorcycles my men just found out in the woods?

Jack: You found two motorcycles?

Derek: I suppose you just want me to believe you brought one along as a spare.

Greenlee: Yeah. That's not going to work. That's right -- the woman you want off the face of the planet is here to save your sorry self. Come on, let's get up. Work with me here. Nice and easy, nice and easy! Come on. Ok. Ok, good. Good, good, good, good, good. Give me your arm. Ok, lean on me, lean on me. Man. Anytime you want to quit slacking, that's going to help, too.

Zach: Thank you, miss.

Greenlee: Oh -- "miss"? If I had known a blow to your head was going to make you polite, I would've done that years ago -- hey! Hey, hey, hey. Come on. You can nap when we get to the house. Let's go. Ok -- slow.

Richie: What happened, Tommy?

Tommy: Don't kill me.

Richie: Going somewhere?

Tommy: Don't kill me, Richie. Please don't kill me.

Richie: Do I look like a murderer to you?

Tommy: I'll do anything you say.

Richie: Oh, you don't have to do that, Tommy. Matter of fact, that's a good idea, don't you think -- doing nothing? Hmm? I got to say, there are a lot of spelling errors in this you never were a good speller, were you, Tommy? So I tell you what I'm going to do -- I'm going to take this home, and I'm going to proofread it for free, ok, because that's just the sort of guy I am. Oh. And if you contact the Laverys, or if you stick around here, we're going to have a real problem -- you know that, right?

Tommy: I won't cause any trouble, ok? I promise.

Richie: Oh, I knew you were a smart boy, besides the spelling errors. Oh. You know, when our buddy died, it was quick. He was lucky, because when some people die, it's dragged out real long. See ya.

Kendall: Mother, you've never liked Greenlee, so I can understand how her being gone works for you. But for me, it's not that simple.

Erica: All right. Look, I -- I completely understand that you two were close once.

Kendall: Well, we were more than close -- we were sisters, whether you were married to her father or not.

Erica: I understand that, sweetheart. But that was a long time ago. I mean, so much has happened.

Kendall: Yes, I know, I know. And it's been mostly horrible. But there were some -- some good spots, too, like when we created Fusion Green. It felt like we had it all back again.

Erica: Honey, believe me, I know what you're trying to say. But that was just one day and -- and how many months now?

Kendall: There were a few other moments, too.

Erica: Very few, I'm -- I'm sure. Kendall, honey, this feeling sorry for Greenlee -- this is such a turnaround for you. I mean, just -- just back at the hospital, you had everyone move in with Ian, because you were so afraid that she would come after your children again and hurt them.

Kendall: Yes, Mother, I freaked out, ok? I overreacted. That's just -- that's what I do. I -- I got totally sucked back into the whole Greenlee phobia thing again.

Erica: It was not a phobia, honey. You had every reason legitimately to be worried about Greenlee.

Kendall: Mother, Mother, would you let me finish, please? Please -- this is important.

Erica: All right. I'm sorry.

Kendall: People -- people have a need to -- to live their dreams in this world, to have a reason to wake up in the morning and live their life. Now, I know Greenlee went about it all wrong, as many chances as she had. But all the things that she wants -- friends and family and to be wanted -- that's what we all want. We all need it.

Erica: Of course, we do. But most of us go about it in a civilized way.

Kendall: There was nothing civilized about the way I had Greenlee arrested.

Erica: Honey, you were just trying to make sure that she didn't hurt your children again.

Kendall: Mother, I betrayed Greenlee. We all did. And unless we can find a way to undo it and let Greenlee have her dreams back, then it's just going to be hanging over us and we are never going to find any peace.

Erica: Kendall? Look, there's a car up ahead.

Kendall: Oh, my God. Is that Zach's?

Ryan: Tommy? Tommy Brennan, it's Ryan Lavery, open up.

Jonathan: Well, somebody packed up in a hurry.

Ryan: And took whatever evidence he had with him.

[Outside, Richie burns the evidence against him]

Richie: Ashes to ashes we all fall down

Derek: If Greenlee's on foot, she can't have gotten far.

Aidan: If she is around here, Derek, she's going to be scared out of her mind.

Jack: Derek, you have to know -- I mean, you -- you do know that she's not armed?

Derek: You know that for a fact?

Jack: Derek, you and I go back a long way. I just need for you to promise me that you'll make sure you're going to do everything, everything in your --

Derek: Damn it, Jack -- hold it! Devane, not smart -- you're under arrest. Now put your hands on top of your head.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Derek, listen, wait a second.

Derek: I'm holding you, too, counselor -- obstruction of justice. You need to look it up? Cuff both of them.

Greenlee: Wait, wait, wait. Go slow. Ok. Ok, ok. Ok. Man, you're -- oh! You are useless! Oh. Look, the house is just right up there. Try not to die before we get there. Come on. Come on!

Kendall: Mom, this is Zach's car. This is Zach's. Zach!

Erica: Honey, it looks like maybe he was changing a flat tire. Oh -- oh. But I don't see Zach anywhere.

Kendall: I don't, either. Blood. Mom, this is blood. This is blood. Zach -- Zach, where are you? Zach! Zach!

Greenlee: Ok. Steady, steady. Hey -- Zach? What?

Zach: I hear something.

Greenlee: Yeah, well, I hope it's your conscience. Come on. Come on. Here's what we're going to do -- see that house over there? I'm going to drop you off on the doorstep. I'm going to ring the bell, and I'm taking off. I'd -- hey. I'd stick around -- don't really feel like going back to jail, thanks to you and your wife. Let's go.

[Greenlee gasps as she and Zach disappear into a hole]

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

Jonathan (to Ryan): Richie's dying. I guarantee he plans on taking you both with him.

Richie (to Annie): I came to end things. It's about time, don't you think, sis?

Kendall (to Aidan): It's over. Greenlee finally won. She killed my husband.
