Amanda: Ahem. So, do you still love me?
Amanda: Oh, come on, please -- that face? I learned from the master. Feel your power, J.R. -- take a bow.
J.R.: Now you've totally lost me.
Amanda: Oh, where's your posse -- Babe, Ava? I thought you'd be partying hard with your blondes.
J.R.: And why would I be doing that?
Amanda: Huh -- I don't know. I just thought since --
J.R.: What, you -- you on drugs? Just say no -- take it from me.
Amanda: Oh, my God.
J.R.: I don't know where you think I'm going, but here I am -- grounded like a kid in my father's house, waiting to go on trial.
Janet: Money is magic. And my Amanda just came into a whole big pile of it! Oh -- this on top of being a goddess.
Richie: Oh, so she takes after her mama, huh?
Janet: Aw. Well, my Amanda's a real angel.
Richie: Like I said --
Janet: But you know what this means, Richie? It means that anything I want in here -- it's mine!
Richie: So you're kind of like the queen of this place?
Janet: Ooh -- "the queen!" Oh, I like that!
Janet: Oh, and you could be my knight.
Richie: Oh, well. [British accent] Careful, your highness -- possible enemy at the gate.
Aidan: Kendall? Kendall? Kendall?
Kendall: Zach? Zach, I know you're close. I know you're close -- I can feel it. I can feel it. Please, please, please give me a sign. Just tell me which way from here. Whew. You have always found me, and you have always saved me. It's my turn. Please. Please just send me a message. Send me a message and lead me to where you are, please. I need you, Zach. Our children need you. Please come back home to us now, please.
Zach: It still hurts -- I know.
Greenlee: Zach, the snake venom is --
Zach: I know -- I got most of it out.
Zach: Ah --
Zach: I'm right here.
Greenlee: I can't breathe. I'm panicking.
Zach: Ok, ok, ok. Shh, calm down.
Zach: Just calm down. Think of the ocean, the beach -- blue sky.
Greenlee: The snake venom -- it's in my lungs.
Zach: No, your lungs are fine.
Greenlee: No, they are not.
Zach: Yeah, your lungs -- your lungs are just fine. I feel it, too.
Greenlee: What, what -- what's happening?
Zach: We're running out of air.
Annie: How do you feel?
Richie: What do you want?
Annie: Do you need anything?
Richie: You are so lame, sis.
Annie: Because I'm out there living my life with my family, and you're locked in here. Who's lame, Richie?
Richie: Yeah, show me that big smile, let me see your fangs.
Annie: Sorry, it's just hard to feel sorry for you, that's all.
Richie: Save your pity for yourself.
Annie: What is that, some kind of a threat?
Richie: No. Or do you think?
Annie: No, see, that's how it works -- you threaten me, and then I get all spooked out. Well, guess what -- I'm not spooked anymore.
Richie: Well, aren't we proud of ourselves!
Annie: Yeah, Richie, I am -- damn proud, because everybody finally knows that I was right about you.
Richie: Well, not everyone -- just your little fan club. Dad's not a member, Mom certainly wasn't a member, and they knew you the longest.
Annie: Mom should be here with you, stroking your hair, holding your hand, comforting her sweet little boy. Why isn't Mom by your side, Richie? I think I know -- do you?
Richie: Because you killed her, Annie.
Annie: No. Maybe it's because deep down, she knew that she raised a monster and maybe that was too hard for her to take and maybe that's what made her grab that rope.
Richie: Mom always loved me and that's why you hate me.
Annie: No, no -- wrong again, baby brother. I think Mom always knew that you belonged in a locked ward like this. That's what I tried to arrange for you.
Richie: Oh, but you missed, and you sent me to the pen for a --
Annie: For a crime you didn't commit. You know what, Richie? For somebody so smart, you really repeat yourself a lot. You know, I used to feel really, really bad about sending you to prison, but after your little deathbed confession, all my guilt went away. How can I ever repay you for that -- I mean, besides killing you, which isn't going to happen, but, you know, what do you need in a place like this? Like, you need a teddy bear or you need, like, a jigsaw puzzle to make the time pass?
Richie: You're really loving this, aren't you?
Annie: I truly am.
Annie: Christmas came early for me this year. I can honestly say that I couldn't be happier.
Ava: Lily -- she has, like, six wedding plans for us. Can you believe her?
Jonathan: Yeah, I can. Kind of -- kind of says something, doesn't it?
Ava: Yeah -- Lily's a great planner, and I'm not?
Jonathan: Kind of says something a little deeper than that, doesn't it?
Ava: What about, like, Valentine's Day for a wedding? Is that -- is that too corny? I think it's too -- what about St. Patrick's Day? That'd be fun. Or the first day of spring.
Jonathan: Ava, stop with the wedding dates, ok? We have a bigger issue to hash out than the date.
Singer: And no matter where I go ♪
Amanda: I'm sorry -- I just cannot take this seriously.
J.R.: Yeah, right, because I forgot -- manslaughter is hilarious.
Amanda: Your father fixes everything. Why should this time be any different? I am sure that Adam will pull something out of his big bag of tricks, something that you can live with -- maybe even like.
J.R.: This time, Amanda, I'm not going to lie.
Amanda: You swore you'd never move back into this house and here you are. You just say whatever works at the time.
J.R.: Thank you for the support.
Amanda: I supported you through your kidnap scam, I covered for you with the Feds. What did supporting you ever get me, J.R.?
J.R.: Do we have to go back to the money that I owe you?
Amanda: I don't need your damn money.
J.R.: Since when?
Amanda: What I needed from you, I never got -- a little concern and respect, but no! You couldn't spare that for good old Amanda, could you?
Zach: Just breathe deep breaths, like you're sleeping. That's good.
Greenlee: I feel lightheaded.
Zach: Me, too.
Greenlee: It's not that bad of a feeling.
Zach: No, it's not. It's ok. Oh.
Greenlee: How come no air?
Zach: I think it snowed.
Greenlee: So we're completely covered with snow up there?
Zach: Snow melts and the air comes back.
Greenlee: When? We have no food, no water.
Zach: Hey, slow down, slow down.
Greenlee: Now we have no air and --
Zach: Shh. Slow down. Deep breath, there you go. There you go. Huh. Don't worry so much. Snow's going to melt -- we got global warming.
Zach: Steady, steady, steady.
Greenlee: Oh! I'm a disaster.
Zach: No, you're not.
Greenlee: Yes, I am.
Zach: You're fine -- better than fine. Let me see your bite.
Greenlee: Oh -- ow.
Zach: Come on.
Greenlee: Ow, ow, ow.
Zach: That's pretty nasty.
Greenlee: Well, it's nasty everything.
Zach: "Nasty everything." Fear.
Zach: You asked me why I could never be wrong. Fear. I'm afraid.
Kendall: I am so afraid. I need you. I need you, Zach, and your children need you. Please, please just find a way and come home to us now -- please.
Aidan: Kendall! Kendall! Kendall! Hey. What are you doing out here?
Kendall: What do you think?
Aidan: You're searching alone in the cold with no map and no coat. Come here -- are you crazy? You want to go missing? You'll be the third person I have to search for. Come here.
Kendall: No, no, I don't -- no, I cannot stop looking!
Aidan: We have to wait, all right, until the snow melts.
Kendall: Don't tell me to wait. Don't tell me to wait, ok?
Aidan: Come back to the house.
Kendall: No -- no! No!
Aidan: Come here.
Kendall: No, let go of me! No, no! No! Zach! Zach -- no! Zach, where are you? Zach, please! Zach, it's Kendall. I'm here! Zach, I'm here!
Zach: When I was 5 years old, I watched my father push my mother off a balcony. And I locked it away, I buried it. But regardless, I carried it with me for the rest of my life. But, you know, I -- finally, I guess I understood. My dad -- he lost his mind, he lost control, and he let the madness take over. And my brother, Michael, was simply -- he was too weak to fight the madness. He just wasn't strong enough to fight it, so he lost control. Now, me -- oh -- I know I've got it in my blood. So the point is I can't allow myself to make mistakes. I can't afford to be wrong. And I can't say I'm sorry. Huh -- ahem. Fear -- that's what drives me. Fear. That's all it is, Greenlee -- that's all it is.
Greenlee: That is way too much for one person to be carrying all alone.
Zach: Well, I'm not alone, Greenlee. I got my wife. I got Kendall. And with her, I can face anything.
Kendall: Zach? Zach!
Aidan: Kendall, Kendall, will you stop this, please?
Kendall: No, no, no, no. Aidan, he's slipping away. He's losing his strength.
Aidan: No, no, no, no -- you're slipping away. You're losing your strength. It's freezing cold out here. Do you really want to freeze to death? I mean, how much sleep did you have last night? And when was the last time you ate?
Kendall: I -- I don't have time.
Aidan: You have two kids at home, Kendall, all right? They need their mum, all right? They need you. What would Zach say if he were standing here right now? What would he say if he was looking into your eyes? What would your husband tell you to do?
Kendall: Ok, just until the snow starts to melt.
Aidan: We'll go back to the house, all right? We can't see anything, because there's so much snow on the ground. And you can't drive home because there's so much ice on the road.
Kendall: Zach is near. He is very near -- I am sure of it, I am sure.
Aidan: We'll go back to the house, ok? And then we'll decide what to do.
Singer: By now I'd have found a way ♪
Jonathan: I'm having some issues, Ava.
Ava: What kind of issues, Jonathan? What are you talking about? Are you backing out of this?
Jonathan: No, no, I -- why do you want to marry me?
Ava: Because I love you, Jonathan -- that's why. Why else?
Jonathan: You tell me. Ok, ok -- you love me, Ava. We'll go with that, ok, but how do you feel about J.R. Chandler?
Ava: No, no -- not this again. No.
Jonathan: "Again"? "Again"? Ava -- Ava, we haven't even really discussed this, ever. Ava, you see him, and you light up.
Ava: That's not true, Jonathan.
Singer: I wish I were here ♪
Jonathan: Ava, you and him in the same room look at each other and there's laser beams.
Ava: Ok, that's you hallucinating.
Jonathan: If you cannot admit to me that you're attracted to J.R., Ava -- how do you think a marriage works?
Ava: I don't know, Jonathan. Why don't you tell me? You were the one that was married to my sister, Lily. And you still have it bad for her -- that's why you're running this game on me.
J.R.: I've been a class-A jerk to you. Haven't I? I'm sorry.
Amanda: You know, it's too little, too late.
J.R.: I took you for granted. I got too comfortable. You were my soft place to land.
Amanda: Not anymore.
J.R.: You get me like nobody else does.
Amanda: You're not that hard to get, J.R. You take and you take and you take.
J.R.: Before you walked in here, I was getting ready to call you. Seriously, I miss you.
Amanda: Right, because we're practically soul mates?
J.R.: Look, I talk a lot of trash when I get hammered.
Amanda: And whenever you move your lips.
J.R.: And when I drink, I say things that I don't mean. I can't even remember them half of the time.
Amanda: How lame do you think I am?
J.R.: I miss you. I miss our thing.
Amanda: "Our thing"? You don't give a damn about me.
J.R.: What can I say? I'm self-destructive, and when something becomes too good, I push it away. You became too good for me. Where do you think we'd be if I hadn't messed up?
Amanda: "Our thing"? Nowhere.
J.R: On my yacht, in bed.
[J.R. kisses Amanda]
Amanda: Hmm -- oh! Damn you, J.R.!
Richie: You sure you don't want to kill me, Ann? Sure sounds like you do.
Annie: I'm not going to jail, Richie, so you can get a new fantasy.
Richie: It's not over till it's over.
Annie: Oh -- oh, but it happens to be over for you.
Richie: You wish.
Annie: I'm sorry -- what was that?
Richie: You can't hear me? You can't see what I'm saying -- no?
Annie: Ah! Let -- let go of me or I swear to God, I will scream.
Richie: Oh, well, go ahead -- this is a Psych ward. People express themselves loudly and freely all the time.
Annie: Five, four, three --
Richie: Three, two --
Richie: I'm never going to let go of you, Annie. You've got to know that, right?
Annie: Burial or cremation -- which one do you prefer, Richie?
Richie: You never know. I just might bury you first.
Greenlee: Zach? If you were programmed to lose your mind, you would've done it already -- in here, with me.
Zach: Ahem. That's a good point. Well, now that I told you, I --
Greenlee: Yeah. You're going to have to kill me.
Zach: I don't make the rules, honey.
Greenlee: What if -- what if we took an oath of secrecy?
Zach: And seal it with blood? We can do that.
Greenlee: No, Zach -- hmm. No more blood. Come on. Pinky swear. Let's go.
Zach: You must be thinking of someone else, because I don't do pinky swear.
Greenlee: No -- huh. I'm not talking to Sticks over there. You, pinky swear.
Zach: Try him -- he's got all his digits. He'll do a pinky swear with you.
Greenlee: I just -- you know, I -- I don't do pinky swears with skeletons. I do them with real, live pinkies, so let's go. Ante up. Pinky swear.
Zach: I swear you tell anybody about this, I'll hunt you down.
Greenlee: You have my oath of silence.
Zach: Oh, goodness -- you and silence? That doesn't go together.
Greenlee: Huh -- ha. I happen to be excellent at the art of doing a whole lot of talking and saying a whole lot of nothing.
Zach: I know.
Greenlee: My parents taught me.
Zach: They taught you this?
Zach: Rambling's what they taught you?
Greenlee: Yeah. Dinner parties, cocktail parties, garden parties, and all sorts of soirees.
Zach: What about after the parties? When the parents left -- then what?
Greenlee: Sleepovers -- hmm. Parents were gone, it would just be the servants and the kids and -- well, you know.
Zach: I don't know.
Greenlee: Wow. Well, it -- late-night antics, ear-splitting music, crazy experiments in hair and -- it filled the void, till the morning when the kids went home.
Zach: And then?
Greenlee: Just some painful silence. I was not sweet -- never will be. I am what I am. Take it or leave it. Aidan took it -- loved it, loved me. I was just about to get my life all back together, and I got stuck in a hole with a skeleton and a snake. I meant my, um --
Zach: I know what you meant.
Kendall: Yeah, the -- the antibiotic. It's the pink stuff. Right. Um, Ryan, he needs it three times a day. All right, ok. So this is the fifth time I'm telling you -- fine. Humor me, please. All right, I'll -- I'll be home when I can. Bye. So, Ryan said that there's a warm front coming in, which is good. That means when the snow starts to melt, then -- then we can search again. They're -- they're out here somewhere. I know they are. So -- wait -- Aidan, Aidan, wait -- Aidan, wait a minute! Stop it, stop it. Give it to me. Aidan, give it to me, give it to me! Give it -- give it to me. What are you doing? Are you crazy?
Aidan: It's over, Kendall, all right, it's over. Get it into your head.
Kendall: No, no, no, no, no. Don't say that, don't think it.
Aidan: Zach and Greenlee are not out there -- we have nothing! We have nothing!
Kendall: This is not over. I won't let it be over.
Aidan: Kendall, I need you to wake up, all right? Open up your eyes.
Kendall: They are out there. I know it.
Aidan: You know it? Why, because you feel something? Get real.
Kendall: Aidan, we have Zach's sketch and Greenlee's cell phone.
Aidan: That's not the only evidence that we have.
Kendall: What? What, have you been holding out on me?
Aidan: I didn't want to worry you, but I guess it's beyond that point now.
Kendall: Well, what did you find?
Aidan: Quentin found a rock with a lot of blood on it near where we found Greenlee's cell phone and that little sketch of yours.
Kendall: Oh, my God.
Aidan: We tested the blood. It's Zach's blood type.
Kendall: Ok, so? So Zach was bleeding at his car. That doesn't prove anything.
Aidan: It proves that Zach never stopped bleeding, so --
Kendall: Yes, but bleeding can't make you disappear.
Aidan: Something happened to them, all right? Someone has --
Kendall: No, no. Don't go there.
Aidan: It's too late.
Kendall: So that's it? That's your big love for Greenlee? You're -- you're a complete fake. You've been all talk this whole time. You know what? Fine. You want to chalk her off as lost, that's fine with me. But Zach can count on me to find him.
Greenlee: Ugh. Oh.
Zach: Go ahead.
Zach: Sleep. Why are you fighting it?
Greenlee: If I fall asleep, I -- I might not wake up again.
Zach: I'll wake you.
Greenlee: Who's going to wake you?
Zach: I'm not going to nod off.
Greenlee: What's going to stop you?
Zach: I have a huge heart, and it starts pounding, and I can't sleep.
Greenlee: Uh -- yeah, I don't hear anything from over here.
Zach: All right. I'm here. Then we'll both have a seat here. How about now I'll turn it up a notch. How is that?
Greenlee: Uh -- come closer.
Greenlee: Ok. I hear it. So, is there a new plan?
Greenlee: I'd love to hear it.
Zach: The snow is going to melt, and the ice is going to crack, and we'll be set free.
Greenlee: It's a good plan.
Zach: Close your eyes.
Zach: Just do it. All right. Here you go. Huh?
Greenlee: Magic roots?
Zach: Yeah, magic roots.
Greenlee: Am I supposed to do something with them?
Zach: Yeah, you're supposed to drink it. Here. Go ahead.
Greenlee: Oh. Oh, my God. Root water -- it's -- it's -- it's amazing. You're brilliant.
Zach: Don't go too far with that.
Greenlee: No -- no, you turned roots into water. It's like turning water into wine. Can you turn this into wine now?
Zach: Yeah, I'll work on that. It'll be my next trick. You know what? Just finish that for now.
Greenlee: No, Zach, please --
Zach: Just finish it.
Greenlee: Zach, have some. You need some.
Zach: It's all you. I'm trying to send a message. I was wrong about you.
Richie: Well, there's the Annie I know and love. The scared one. I have missed you, you know that?
Annie: I'm not afraid of you, Richie. Why -- why should I be?
Richie: Because I'm always three steps ahead of you.
Annie: No. No, not anymore you're not.
Richie: Yeah, I know it looks bad for me in here. What, being committed and dying. It would be normal to throw in the towel, but, you know, I'm just not a normal kind of guy.
Annie: No. You're a monster.
Richie: But a lovable monster. Come on, admit it, you miss me when I'm not around.
Annie: You've been dead to me for a really long time.
Richie: I know you want to believe that. Maybe you do from time to time, but deep down, you've got to know better. You will never be free of me.
Ava: So I'm just, like, the stand-in for Lily? Just the body double?
Jonathan: That's nice, Ava. That's real nice of you. Throw Lily in my face. Listen to me, that's not going to work, ok?
Ava: Well, I've done everything I can to make you happy, Jonathan. My hair, my clothes --
Jonathan: Hey, I've never asked you to change your style. You did that all on your own. And -- well, why are you deciding to play somebody else anyway? Huh? Are you doing it to please J.R.?
Ava: J.R., J.R., J.R.? You're obsessed with J.R., Jonathan.
Jonathan: No, I am not obsessed with J.R., but I'm worried that you may be.
J.R.: I'm headed to prison. I couldn't have a life with you even if you wanted me to. But I can show you how I feel about you, if you just give me a chance.
Amanda: Things could've been different.
J.R.: And they still can be -- for a little while.
Amanda: Why? Why were you such an ass?
J.R.: I'm sorry. Really. I do care about you. If you just let me show you how much -- before they lock me up, and I can't.
[J.R. kisses Amanda]
Richie: See you soon, Annie.
Annie: No, Richie. You won't.
Janet: Well, I couldn't hear a word of that, but it looked like an emotional crisis to me.
Richie: No. My sister -- she's not well. She needs me.
Janet: Oh, that's a burden.
Richie: Oh, I don't mind. She's my sister.
Janet: Yeah. But the way you grabbed her arm --
Richie: I was just trying to get through to her -- show her how much I care. She's all I can think about right now. I've got to be with her. Can you help me, your highness?
Janet: You don't need me, sir knight. You have the power to get out of here anytime you want.
Amanda: What? What's wrong?
J.R.: "Tell me every dirty, evil, nasty thing you've ever done."
Amanda: Look, if this is your way to get us more in the mood, forget it.
J.R.: No, no, these words just hit me. I don't know why, but I think they mean something. "Tell me every dirty, evil, nasty thing you've ever done." Do those words mean anything to you?
J.R.: I think somebody told me that the night of the accident. I think I'm starting to remember.
Amanda: I have to go.
J.R.: What? Hey, Amanda -- wait.
Jonathan: We got to put the wedding on hold --
Ava: On hold?
Jonathan: And figure out what's going on with you and J.R.
Ava: Wait, on hold, on hold? I know what that means. That means it's canceled. I might not be going to MIT, or anything like that, but I know what that means.
Jonathan: I can't even talk to you, can I?
Ava: No, Jonathan, you've already said enough. You don't really love me, and you never really did.
Jonathan: I love you as much as you'll let me love you. But that's not enough, for either one of us, is it?
Richie: Couldn't tear yourself away?
Annie: Oh! Oh! Oh -- how did you sneak out? Guard!
Richie: I told you you'd never get away from me. Wherever you go, there I'll be.
Richie: Oh, good girl. I knew you could do it. Enjoy the rest of your life in prison.
[Annie pants as she imagines that Richie has escaped]
Annie: What? Oh!
Richie: You will never get rid of me.
Janet: I am your queen! You should be bowing down before me, each and every one of you. Would you unhand me, please? You laughable bunch of fools, all of you. I am the ruler of your realm and you must kneel before me! You must kneel! You -- you -- you -- each of you to the tower, and you, and you, and I shall have your heads at dawn, and I will put you on stakes! By morning, I shall burn your families. That's right, you will see no mercy from --
[While Janet creates a distraction, Richie sneaks out]
Kendall: I was a bitch to Zach last time I saw him, a complete bitch. There is no way in hell those are going to be my last words to him.
Aidan: Kendall, Zach loved you. You know he forgave you. He was buying a house for you.
Kendall: No, don't -- don't talk about Zach in the past tense.
Aidan: Look, I hate it, too, all right? But we have to accept it. Zach and Greenlee are gone.
Greenlee: So -- um --
Greenlee: Say it again.
Zach: Ok. There was a blue boat and a red boat --
Zach: And they collided --
Greenlee: No, no. The message -- say the message again.
Zach: You're not what I thought.
Greenlee: What am I? I'm cold. Very, very cold.
Zach: Come on.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
J.R.: I love you, Babe.
Babe: I love you, too.
Greenlee (to Zach): I don't know how to die. Will you help me?
Aidan: All right, Zach and Greenlee are dead!
