Jack: No, my -- my daughter's not a redhead, but she could be wearing a wig. No, she's not 5'1", either. Thank you, though. I do appreciate your calling. What do you want, Erica?
Erica: You never showed at Thanksgiving dinner.
Jack: No, I never intended to.
Erica: I thought you said --
Jack: Excuse me.
Erica: You would try to make it. I mean, we haven't been apart on Thanksgiving.
Jack: Well, you misunderstood, I guess. What the hell did I do with that number?
Erica: Have -- have you had any leads on Greenlee? Have you located her? Jack, is there anything I can do to help?
Jack: Yeah, you can turn around and walk back out the door. Bill, Jackson Montgomery here. You've heard? Yes, my daughter, Greenlee, is missing, and I am desperately trying to find her.
Babe: Everything was really delicious.
Annie: Thanks. Emma really loved having Little Adam here.
Babe: Yeah, speaking of -- I should probably take him home.
Annie: Well, Ryan should be back with Spike soon, and --
Babe: And you don't have to say it. Richie never showed.
Annie: I know you're disappointed, but --
Babe: No, actually, I'm glad that he didn't show. Playing him on any level just doesn't seem right.
Annie: We just want the truth from him about what he's up to. And you're the only one I could see him giving it to.
Babe: Well, maybe he caught on. Maybe that's why he didn't show up.
Annie: Knowing Richie, that would make him want to come even more, just so he could mess with us.
Babe: You just won't cut him a break, will you?
Annie: Babe, he said he'd be here, didn't he? And he isn't. How come? Well, what excuse is he going to make up this time?
Babe: I know you won't believe me, but I honestly don't think that Richie is --
Babe: Is out to hurt you. Sorry. Hello? Yeah. Oh, my God. Oh, no, no, I'll be there right away. Thank you. Ok -- um -- that was Joe Martin. Richie asked him to call me.
Annie: Richie asked Joe?
Babe: Your brother's in the hospital.
Ryan: Look at that.
Ryan: Hey. Hey, Ian. Hi, beautiful. Wow. It's kind of weird having him here, you know? I mean, weird, you know, in a good way.
Kendall: Oh, it's unbelievable. I can't stop staring at him.
Ryan: Spike in his room?
Kendall: Yeah, he -- he ate way too much pumpkin pie, so he's -- he's resting, but his stuff is all packed up and ready to go.
Ryan: It's ok, Kendall. He can stay here tonight.
Ryan: Yeah. I mean, his baby brother is home for the first time. He wouldn't want to wake up in the morning and not see him. Plus, I think you could probably use the company.
Kendall: I wouldn't mind it, that's for sure.
Ryan: No word on Zach?
Kendall: No, not yet. But there will be. I -- I know it. Wouldn't it be just like Zach to walk right through that door and ask what all the fuss has been about?
Tad: Is there something wrong with your phone? Do you not get reception out here or something? I have been trying to contact you for hours.
Aidan: Well, how did you find me?
Tad: What do you mean, why did I find you? I just followed the directions you gave me from the last time we spoke. This is the place you stashed Greenlee when she hid from the cops, right? Nice. You turn up anything?
Aidan: I gave her the -- the names and numbers of my friends in Canada, but they haven't heard from her yet. And the bikes -- we -- the motor bikes are still outside.
Tad: Yeah, well, I'm not surprised. I mean, it's a bit of a stretch. Do you honestly think she's going to come back here?
Aidan: Well, this is the last place we were together, Tad. I mean, I remember standing right there, and I promised her that I would keep her safe. All right? Maybe I'm just -- maybe I'm hoping that she's going to come back. Or maybe I'm just trying to find a way to keep my promise.
Greenlee: Why -- why would he do that? Why -- why wouldn't he help us? Why did he close up the hole?
Zach: He did, it's done.
Greenlee: No, don't you understand? That's the only way out! We -- we -- we -- we have to reopen that hole, or we're going to die in here! Oh, my God. Oh, my God. We're going to die.
Tad: I'll throw you the biggest pity party Pine Valley has ever seen, once we find Greenlee. But for now, we got to use a little bit of that expertise, ok? We got searching to do.
Aidan: No, mate, I'm not asking you for a pity party, all right? I'm just giving you the facts here, Tad. It was my idea to break her out of that courtroom, I thought I could protect her, and now she's out there God knows where.
Tad: She's out there waiting for you to find her, which is exactly what you're going to do. Because that's what you're good at. You will find her, I know it. Keep the faith, baby. Come on, snap out of it. Listen, I'm going to step outside for a minute. Do a little snooping, see if I can see anything, ok? Are you going to stay here?
Aidan: Yeah, I'm going to stay here. I've got to complete the satellite search of all the paths leading out of this place. I'm looking for possible shelters, as well.
Tad: Ok, so -- I'll see you in a few minutes, right?
Aidan: All right, mate.
Ryan: Look at him. He's so peaceful. He's so happy. I think he actually knows that he's home.
Kendall: Yeah. Everything is so different for him now. All the sounds and the -- the lights, colors. It's so hard, not having Zach here for all this.
Ryan: The police don't have any new leads at all?
Kendall: No, I'm -- I'm still waiting to hear if they found J.R.'s car.
Ryan: Ok, I know that the waiting, you know, probably feels like forever, but you will have answers. I mean, Derek has got guys working overtime on this.
Kendall: You've been so great through all this.
Ryan: Well, I love you, Kendall, you know that.
Kendall: Didn't seem like love when you confronted me about setting up Greenlee.
Ryan: Well, you tick me off sometimes. I mean, really tick me off sometimes, but you're the mother of my son. We're a family, and -- and we're friends. And right now, my friend is going through a really tough time, and that trumps anything that happened with Greenlee.
Kendall: Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe that I'm going through all of this hell because of what happened with Greenlee.
Ryan: Don't, Kendall. Don't do this again.
Kendall: No, no -- Ryan, it's perfect karma. That's -- that's exactly what it is. I am being punished for -- for ruining Greenlee's life.
Ryan: It's not karma, and it's not punishment, ok? You don't even know what happened yet. Like you said, Zach could walk through that door any second.
Kendall: What I wouldn't give -- you know, I am scared. I'll admit that. But I don't believe for a second he's gone. May -- maybe lost. He -- he may even be hurt. But he isn't dead. I know he isn't. He's just having a hard time getting home to us. But he will be.
Greenlee: I have to get out of here. Just, um, stay calm, Greenlee. Stay calm. Calm. Keep breathing. Keep breathing.
Zach: What are you doing?
Greenlee: There's plenty of room in here, and space. Just -- just keep breathing. Hey! Hey! Answer me! Where did you go? Get back here! I have to get out! I don't want to die in here! Let go of me! Just let me out! I don't want to die in here! I am not going to die in here! I can't! I can't die in here. I can't. I can't.
Jack: I appreciate it. Best to your family, ok? Thanks.
Erica: Jack -- I admit that I said some things in the heat of the moment that probably seemed very harsh, and I regret that. I think we were both on edge. I think that we took it out on each other. And that was a mistake. Because the truth is, Jack, we need each other if we're going to get through this. So I'm here now, and I want to help.
Jack: You're here now? With Greenlee missing and dead, for all we know, now you've decided to do the right thing. It's a little late.
Erica: Oh, no, I am sure that Greenlee's fine. She is so resourceful, Jack.
Jack: And she's innocent, Erica. But that doesn't mean too much to you, does it? You wanted my daughter locked up, but Kendall beat you to the punch.
Erica: What are you talking about?
Jack: What am I talking about? You had Mary Smythe's signature forged on these commitment papers. You'd do anything for your daughter, wouldn't you? Including having mine committed to a mental asylum.
Erica: All right, you had your say, now I'm going to have mine.
Babe: Joe --
Annie: What was my brother brought in for?
Joe: He's come down with pneumonia. And when someone with leukemia contracts pneumonia, it can be life-threatening. Doesn't help matters, of course, that he was up all night joining in the search for Zach Slater.
Babe: That's why he didn't show up for dinner?
Annie: Richie told you that?
Joe: No, no, I believe one of our volunteers found him -- he was passed out in his car near the crash site -- and brought him in.
Babe: Well, can we see him?
Joe: Yes, yes, this way.
Babe: Hey. Joe said you were out looking for Zach Slater.
Richie: The guy's got a wife and kids. I thought I could help.
Babe: You -- you don't even really know Zach, do you?
Babe: So, is there anything I can get you?
Richie: The doc says it's up to me. Says I got to fight.
Babe: Yeah, you'd better fight. You still owe me a Thanksgiving dinner.
Richie: No pressure.
Babe: Seriously, though, if there's anything I can do --
Richie: Maybe. Yeah, maybe break me out of here?
Richie: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey. It's going to be all right. It's going to be fine. It's got to be. I need more time with you.
Zach: Are you finished? We didn't have a lot of food and water to begin with, and now we have even less.
Greenlee: Yeah, well, guess what -- that's your problem, because I'm getting out of here.
[Greenlee grunts as she stacks some objects to climb up on]
Zach: You sure about that?
Greenlee: Don't talk to me. I'm trying to concentrate.
[As Greenlee tries to reach the entryway, she falls back down]
Erica: You know how much I love you, Jack. I hate what's happened to Kendall and Greenlee.
Jack: "What's happened"? Erica, that forgery didn't just "happen." You went to a great deal of trouble to try to get my daughter carted off in a straitjacket.
Erica: I just want to make everything right now.
Jack: Well, you can't.
Erica: Well, you haven't even given me a chance, Jack.
Jack: I'm not going to fight with you. I've got more phone calls to make.
Erica: Jack, we have to talk about this.
Jack: I don't think you understand, Erica. There's nothing to talk about, because it won't change anything. It's over, Erica. You and I are finished.
Babe: I'll let Annie know we're done. PS -- you get some rest, ok?
Richie: Thanks for coming.
Annie: How is he?
Babe: He's not good. He wants to see you. Hey, if you go in there, will you do me a favor? Just -- just don't get into it with him. Not now.
Richie: I won't bite. I can't. Can't do much of anything. Got a present for you.
Annie: I don't want anything from you, Richie.
Richie: I'm ready to confess.
Erica: Well, clearly, you're exhausted and on edge because of Greenlee, and so we will just table this discussion until she's found.
Jack: Table what discussion? I just told you, we're through talking. We're through, period.
Erica: I can't accept that.
Jack: No, of course you can't, because it's not what you want, and you always need to get your way.
Erica: Why do you do that? Every time we have a disagreement, you blame me.
Jack: Let me take my share of the blame, then, because I know how you are. I know once you want the thing, you go after it, and you don't care who gets hurt or who suffers.
Erica: That's not fair.
Jack: And I have forgiven you so many times, and that was my mistake, because it led you to believe that I would always forgive you, Erica, that you could act as selfishly and as recklessly as you wanted, but good old Jack would always come around.
Erica: Yes, you forgave me, because you loved me, and because you still love me, and you always will.
Jack: This is so far past love.
Erica: You're right, Jack. We have had our share of fights over the years. But we've always ended up back in each other's arms, not because you -- you just looked the other way. We always made up for a simple reason -- because you love me -- and I love you, and we're part of each other's lives. What is it you always say to me? You always tell me, "I'm your heart." Well, you can't live without your heart. We can't live without each other, Jack. There's only one way to make this right. There's only one thing that's missing. Marry me again, Jack.
Kendall: It is so hard not being out there searching for him.
Ryan: You're doing just as much good here with Ian.
Kendall: Yeah, but he is missing Ian's first night at home.
Ryan: Do you want me to get it?
Kendall: No, no. It's ok.
Kendall: Tell me you found him.
Derek: Not yet. I'm sorry. I do have some news, though.
Kendall: Come in.
Derek: You may want to sit down for this, Kendall.
Kendall: No, just -- just tell me, Derek.
Derek: We found J.R.'s car abandoned in an airport parking lot.
Derek: He definitely hit something with it. There was dried blood on the passenger's seat. We tested it. It matched the blood at Zach's car.
Tad: No. I mean, at least nothing that would indicate which direction she took off. That doesn't mean anything, though. You know, it's -- let's just wait till it's light out.
Aidan: You know what, Tad? Greenlee is a royal pain in the backside, you know that? She's stubborn, she's pushy, she's arrogant, and she always has to have the last word. You know that?
Tad: Yeah, and if you don't find her soon, your head's going to explode.
Tad: Huh. You'll lose your mind. I've been there. Trust me, I've been there.
Aidan: I already have lost my mind. I love her.
Zach: Hey. Open your eyes.
Zach: Look at me. Come on. You done? You done throwing food around and climbing the walls, falling down? You done with that? Come on, get up.
Greenlee: Ow. Zach -- ow.
Zach: Back here.
Greenlee: Oh --
Zach: Let me explain something to you. We're stuck in here, you and me. And right now, I can't see a way out. Right now. So you need to pull it together. Can you do that?
Erica: Not what you were expecting?
Jack: Marriage proposal?
Erica: I know it seems out of left field, but it really isn't. I meant every word of it, Jack. And you know as well I do, we should be married -- that's what's missing.
Jack: Being married won't make a bit of difference.
Erica: I disagree.
Jack: Yeah, you disagree -- and that's my point. You don't like the solution that I've brought to our problems, so you're creating one of your own as long as you leave here having gotten your way.
Erica: This is about us, Jack, not me. I may not be perfect, but neither are you. And for the record, I have forgiven you on many occasions, too. I don't want to open up old wounds.
Jack: Then don't.
Erica: I lost custody of Bianca because of you.
Jack: Ok, then do. You're right -- I wouldn't lie on the witness stand. I wouldn't deny that we'd had an affair.
Erica: A lot of men deny having had affairs, Jack. I only asked you to do it so I could keep my daughter!
Jack: Again, you're proving my point, Erica. I didn't do what you told me to do. I didn't give you what you wanted, and so you have held it against me all these years.
Erica: You know what? Maybe I did resent you for that, maybe I still resent you. But it hasn't changed my feelings for you. I still love you, and I still want to be your wife.
Jack: Stop it. No more. We are divorced, Erica, and we're staying that way.
Annie: So, where's this big confession?
Richie: Guilty, as charged, of all the bad stuff. Everything you accused me of, I did them all, every one. You were right to send me to prison, Ann. I didn't do what -- I didn't do what you said. But I did so much worse. You know that. That's why I came here.
Annie: To Pine Valley -- because I knew?
Richie: To hurt you, to hurt you bad. And I can't even tell you I'm sorry. No regrets.
Annie: How can you not have any regrets after everything you've done?
Richie: Because I'm just me. You know that. You've always known that.
Annie: Why are you telling me all this now?
Richie: Because I'm about to die.
Ryan: J.R. is in jail, I hope.
Derek: Not yet.
Kendall: Are you kidding me?
Derek: I -- he ran off. I have an APB out. I --
Kendall: Well, then he lied to me. He lied. He told me that he doesn't remember anything, that -- that he completely blanked out. But if he ran, that means he knows. He knows that he hurt Zach -- he knows.
Ryan: Whoa -- hold on, hold on. Where are you going? Where are you going?
Kendall: I am going to find J.R., wrap my hands around his throat, and make him tell me what the hell he did to my husband.
Greenlee: Oh, my God. The -- the walls, they're -- the walls are closing in. I can't breathe. I can't.
Zach: The walls are fine.
Greenlee: My heart --
Zach: Just try to relax.
Greenlee: My heart.
Zach: Here, here --
Greenlee: My heart.
Zach: Here. Breathe into this.
Greenlee: I can't.
Zach: Relax. Close your eyes and relax.
Greenlee: I'm having a heart attack. I'm having a heart attack!
Zach: No, you're not having a heart attack, the walls are not moving in. You're having a panic attack. Just try and calm down.
Greenlee: Zach, I can't breathe. I can't -- please just do something. Do something, just help me stop -- help me stop thinking. Please, I can't breathe. I can't breathe.
[Zach grabs Greenlee and kisses her]
Greenlee: What the hell was that?
Zach: It worked -- panic's over.
Greenlee: No, it didn't. It didn't. It's --
Zach: Just close your eyes.
Greenlee: It's still there.
Zach: Just close your eyes, can you do that?
Greenlee: It's still there.
Zach: All right, now just --
Greenlee: It's not working.
Zach: Ok, ok! Think of something pleasant.
Greenlee: No, I can't. I can't.
Zach: Yes, you can.
Greenlee: I can't.
Zach: Focus -- shh!
Zach: Think of something calm and safe.
Greenlee: You're here? You're really here. Oh.
[Greenlee imagines being with Aidan again]
Greenlee: Oh, my God.
Aidan: You never have to be scared again, darling. We're going to have a wonderful life together.
Greenlee: I suppose you want me to thank you for that. Thank you. It worked, it really worked.
[Zach faints and falls over]
Greenlee: Oh, my God -- Zach!
Tad: You know, Fish and Chips, it's a little dark out there to start checking out all those trails you mapped out. You know, maybe we should come back in the morning and start making our way to -- hey. Aidan, come on. No, no. Wait, wait, wait -- come on, what are you doing? You're not helping anything.
Aidan: I should've gone with her, Tad. I should've gone with her. How did I let this happen?
Tad: It doesn't matter. You will find her.
Aidan: Yes, it does matter! I need to find her now! I can't wait for another minute! Tad, you don't understand -- I can't let another person that I love disappear!
Aidan: Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Tad: No, that's -- no, no, no.
Tad: Just be careful, you know, or you'll break something. Some of this stuff might be -- no, that's doubtful. Look, why don't we -- why don't we just get out of here?
Aidan: Huh. No. I'm going to stay, you go.
Tad: No, no, no, no, no, wait. No way -- you say stay, we stay. I mean, we're partners, that's it.
Aidan: Go home to your family, Tad. All right? Go see Jenny. I'm going to search every path, and I'm going to do it in the dark if I have to.
Tad: You be careful. Call me the minute you find anything.
Erica: You think I don't know what you're doing?
Jack: No, I guess I don't.
Erica: Using some kind of reverse psychology, pretending that you have lost all feelings for me so that we can turn this whole thing around and I beg you to come back to me?
Jack: Believe me, Erica, that is the last thing I want.
Erica: Oh, fine. Ok, you can hide behind that -- that aloof facade all you want. But I know how you feel, Jack. I know that you still love me, I know you miss me. I know you want everything to go back to the way it was.
Jack: "The way it was"? And how was it, Erica? You acting out, running roughshod over anybody who got in your way, thinking only of yourself and me forgiving you -- again and again and again. Well, I can't do it anymore. I'm not Mona.
Erica: Why are you bringing my mother into this?
Jack: Because your mother, Erica, had an endless supply of love and forgiveness for you. And because she did, you presumed that everybody else did, as well. Well, I don't have an endless supply. I have my limit, and I've reached it, Erica. I am on empty. I'm done.
Kendall: Let me go, let me go. Ryan, let me go -- I know I can find J.R.
Ryan: You can't go anywhere, Kendall. Your sons are here. You know that -- they need you.
Derek: We'll find him, Kendall. He won't stay lost for long, believe me. Now, I'm sorry I don't have better news, but know we want Chandler found and caught as much as you do. I'll let you know the minute I hear something.
Kendall: How is this happening? They found more blood, Ryan -- Zach's blood. Oh, my God -- what happened to him? Where is he?
Annie: It's not a given you're dying, Richie -- not yet. Joe said you should fight.
Richie: I don't want to.
Richie: It's too much. It's -- it's the pain, everything I've -- it's unbearable.
Annie: Don't -- just don't do this, Richie. Don't play me like this. If -- if you're looking at me to forgive you or to run me -- because I can't.
Richie: I'm not asking for forgiveness -- don't deserve it, don't want it. I'm the same nasty bastard.
Annie: Yet, you still want to hurt me and my family still -- even now?
Richie: Go over to my jacket. There's something in the pocket for you. Won't bite.
Richie: There you go.
Annie: What is this?
Richie: It's a present for you. Something to set us both free.
Annie: What's in this vial, Richie?
Richie: A good thing for you and for me.
Annie: If you think I'm going to swallow this --
Richie: I want you to give it to me.
Annie: To you?
Richie: So I could be free of this, so you could be free of me, so you'll be safe again, Annie. Your family will be safe -- Ryan, Emma -- safe. You get what you want, and I get what I want.
Annie: You're asking me to kill you.
Richie: The doctors won't suspect a thing. They won't know. It'll just make my heart stop like I died of the pneumonia. Do it, Annie. Now, just -- do it, sis. Put us both out of our misery.
Ryan: You told me earlier that Zach was all right. And you got to remember that. You got to believe that. Ok? He's going to come home to you, Kendall. He's going to watch Ian grow up in this house. He's going to be there when Spike hears his first sound again, all right? He's going to come back to you. He will.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals sing: Yesterday he said my eyes were fading fast away I said, "Well, what do you expect? You asked me not to stay" and if it had all been for the best I wouldn't feel this way he said and he said ♪
[While searching in the woods, Aidan finds a piece of paper and pockets it]
Aidan: What the hell is that?
Singer: He said it's crazy how love stays with me yeah you know it hurts me 'cause I don't wanna fight this war and it's amazing to see me reading through this scene ♪
Aidan: It's Greenlee's cell phone.
Singer: Of love and fear ♪
Singer: And apologies ♪
Greenlee: No way. No way -- you wouldn't let me die. I'm not allowing you to die, either. Zach, do you hear me?
Singer: Apologies ♪
Greenlee: Do you hear me, Zach?
Singer: Apologies ♪
Erica: You can't have lost all feeling for me, Jack. That's not possible.
Jack: Why is that? Because you're the Erica Kane and there's not a man in this world who doesn't want and desire you, and I'm the lucky sap who's had the privilege for all these years? Well, you are something -- I'll give you that. You are gorgeous and tenacious and hugely successful and you could not have gotten where you are in the world without a lot of guts, and even more ego.
Erica: Thank you.
Jack: Don't be so quick to thank me. You are the woman you are today, because you are totally and utterly self-centered and self-obsessed, and I believe you are incapable of truly loving anyone other than yourself.
Erica: How could you possibly say such horrible things to me?
Jack: I can say it because it happens to be true. And if it's painful to hear, maybe you ought to ask yourself why.
Erica: Oh, I get it. You think that by saying such mean things to me, you will push me away, but you know what, Jack? Out of all the hateful things you've said to me today, only one thing counts -- you haven't once told me that you don't love me anymore.
Jack: Erica? I don't love you anymore.
Erica: You're lying. I will not leave. You want to just throw away what we have, something so precious? How could you do that? Have you thought this through, Jack? I'm going to stay. I'm going to stay and fight for us.
Jack: I've said everything I have to say, Erica. Now, if you won't leave --
[Jack picks up his jacket and goes out the door]
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam (to J.R.): Everything's going to be all right. There's no way you're going down for what happened to Zach Slater.
Zach: I love you.
Greenlee: You love me?
Annie (to Ryan and Babe): Richie asked me to kill him.
