Zach: Tell me you found Hannah.

Aidan: No plane tickets, no credit card details, no car rentals, no clues.

Zach: Well, I may have one. Do me a favor -- you stay with Kendall.

Kendall: I don't need Aidan to babysit me.

Zach: Hannah tried to kill you.

Kendall: Yeah, and who do you think she'll go after next?

Zach: I'll be fine.

Kendall: Zach, please, please don't play hero.

Zach: Four guards -- Aidan? Two in the back, two in the front, ok?

Kendall: Don't ignore me, Zach.

Zach: I'm not ignoring you.

Kendall: Please, I'm worried about you.

Zach: I'm going to follow up a lead -- that's all I'm doing. Come here.

Kendall: Oh.

Zach: I'm trusting you with my wife. Keep her safe.

Kendall: Zach, please, can you --

Zach: Stop.

Kendall: Please.

Zach: Let me do the worrying. One more kiss.

Kendall: Ok.

Zach: Bye.

Kendall: Bye. Well, you heard him. He's trusting you with his wife.

Ryan: Hey. Wait a minute -- is that really you or am I still dreaming?

Annie: I didn't mean to wake you.

Ryan: Because I just -- I smelled your perfume, and then the dream I was having got a whole lot more interesting.

[Annie chuckles]

Ryan: Best medicine.

Annie: Hmm. Maybe you could use another dose.

Ryan: Yeah, maybe I could. Oh, Erica, come on in.

Annie: Why don't I give you two some time alone?

Ryan: Ok.

Erica: Thank you. You put your own life at risk to save Kendall's.

Ryan: I was just acting on instinct.

Erica: I don't think there's any way I could ever repay you.

Ryan: You really don't have to -- honestly, Erica, because today, I feel like I am the luckiest man on the earth.

Annie: Richie? What are you doing here?

Richie: A real kick in the pants, isn't it, sis? I get a second chance at life and Ryan gets a bullet to the head -- ooh.

Annie: He's doing great, Richie. No need to worry about Ryan.

Richie: But you never really know how these things turn out, do you?

Greenlee: No! Oh!

Jack: Hey, hey. What's going -- sweetheart? It's ok, I'm here.

Greenlee: No, I just --

Jack: You were just dreaming, honey, just dreaming.

Greenlee: I was -- I was having a nightmare that I was still back in the bomb shelter and Zach was dead and the walls were closing in, and I couldn't breathe and I -- I couldn't --

Jack: Honey, listen to me. You are home, ok, and you're safe.

Greenlee: Ok.

Jack: So is Zach.

Greenlee: Ok, ok.

Jack: Ok?

Greenlee: Yeah.

Jack: All right.

Greenlee: But, dad, there -- there was a -- a bullet through the window, and Ryan --

Jack: Ryan --

Greenlee: Wait, where's Ryan? Is he ok? Is he --

Jack: Ryan is great -- remember?

Greenlee: Oh, right. You -- you told me that, right?

Jack: Right.

Greenlee: Ok. And where's Aidan?

Jack: Aidan is with Kendall, and Zach is out trying to find Hannah.

Greenlee: No. No, no, he can't do that. She's crazy! She's going to shoot him again!

Jack: Honey, honey, stop. It's going to be ok. Zach's going to be fine. Ok?

Greenlee: Ok.

Jack: Come here.

Greenlee: No one's fine, Dad. You can hold me, you can protect me, but no one's really ok, are they?

Adam: Yes, Ms. Gamble. The stock's already been transferred.

Zach: Tell me where Hannah Nichols is hiding, now.

Adam: Or what, Slater?

Zach: Or your face in the concrete. You've got five seconds.

Adam: Hannah? Why would I know where she is? You want to hook up with your old flame, I suggest you go ahead and do it, but I don't know where she is. I don't care where she is.

Zach: She's on your payroll. She does your dirty work for you, and last night, she tried to kill my wife. If I find out that you had anything to do with that, you start saying your goodbyes right now.

Jack: Sweetheart, you have been through so much in the past month -- unimaginable things. And, no, I couldn't protect you then, but I am here now, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let anybody hurt you again.

Greenlee: What, are you going to throw yourself against the door?

Jack: With great force and intent if that's what it takes, yes.

Greenlee: Oh, I'm just -- I'm trying so hard to live my life with this glass-half-full attitude, "look on the bright side" sort of thing, but -- oh, man, it is not easy.

Jack: I know, I know.

Greenlee: You know, when Zach and I were first rescued from the bomb shelter, I just thought, "Ok, this is it. It's over, it's -- it's finally over and I can breathe again."

Jack: It is over, and you can.

Greenlee: No, because Zach has now thrown himself back in the middle of all of it. I mean, Hannah tried to kill Kendall, and Zach -- I know him, Dad. He is not going to let her get away with it.

Jack: Listen, stop it. Zach is going to be ok -- you don't have to worry about Zach.

Greenlee: It is kind of crazy, me sitting here worried about Zach Slater. I never thought that would happen.

Jack: You know what? I think you two were lucky to have each other in that bomb shelter.

Greenlee: Yeah. I mean, at first, when we realized we were stuck together, oh, we were going to kill each other, but then --

[Jack chuckles]

Greenlee: After some time, he was just remarkable.

Jack: I wouldn't be at all surprised if he felt the same way about you. What?

Greenlee: That nightmare I just had?

Jack: Mm-hmm?

Greenlee: How I woke up confused and --

Jack: Yeah?

Greenlee: Disoriented? Well, it's not the first time it happened. I keep having these bomb shelter panic attacks, only last time, I -- I called out for Zach.

Jack: Honey, I think that's a perfectly natural reaction.

Greenlee: Yeah, except it was with Aidan.

Jack: I see. My guess would be that Aidan would understand.

Greenlee: You think so?

Jack: Yeah, I do, but you don't seem so sure. You think Aidan has a problem with you on some level still needing Zach?

Greenlee: Huh -- no. I mean, I -- I -- no, I hope not. I mean, Aidan would never be jealous of Zach. If there's one thing that I am most sure of right now, it's how lucky we were to have each other, to find each other, to be rescued from the bomb shelter. Aidan and I and Kendall and Zach -- we're just so lucky to have each other.

Aidan: I bought some breakfast stuff, some muffins -- banana nut and blueberry.

Kendall: Oh, what is it with you and Zach? Whenever there's a problem, you guys talk about food.

Aidan: It's a guy thing.

Kendall: Right. Saying "it's a guy thing" automatically just explains it all.

Aidan: I don't know -- does it?

Kendall: Yeah, like when you don't want to talk about the obvious.

Aidan: We said, we -- we made a deal, didn't we, that we weren't going to talk about it?

Kendall: Aidan, Aidan? Not talking about the fact that we slept together doesn't make the fact that we did it go away.

Aidan: You want to know what I think? I think you want to talk about what we did, because it stops you from concentrating on what is really going on here -- the fact that someone tried to kill you.

Kendall: Yeah -- you know what? I love when you tell me how I'm feeling. I -- I love that.

Aidan: Look, you're anxious about Hannah, you're worried about Zach, and you feel guilty, because Ryan is lying there in the hospital.

Kendall: Ok, ok. I hate it when you're right.

Ryan: So, how is Kendall?

Erica: I'm a little worried about her. I called her earlier -- she said everything is just fine, but I --

Ryan: But you want to go over and check for yourself?

Erica: Huh. Well, I wanted to check on the man who saved her life first.

Ryan: Do I look like a guy who needs to be checked up on? Ah.

Erica: Ryan, should you be out of bed?

Ryan: Wow, that feels really good, actually. Do you mind if I just lean on you a little bit?

Erica: No, no, you really got to take it easy.

Ryan: Ah -- why? You don't have a good answer for that one, now, do you?

Erica: Huh -- ok, you're thankful, I get it. Now, get back into bed.

Ryan: I survived, and I don't want to spend another second in that bed again.

Erica: Ok, well, I'm going to get you a wheelchair.

Ryan: You know, I --

Erica: Huh?

Ryan: I was thinking. All the years that we've known each other, and I don't believe that we've ever had the chance to dance.

[Erica chuckles]

Ryan: May I?

Erica: Ok, you have one minute, that's it. And hold on tight -- let me lead.

Ryan: What else is new? I'm alive, Erica!

[Erica giggles]

Erica: You're alive, and you're stepping on my toes.

[Ryan chuckles]

Ryan: I have a beautiful wife that I adore, I have children that I love, and I am dancing in here with Erica Kane. I don't think I could be any happier. I really don't. We got it now.

Erica: Got it!

[Erica laughs]

Ryan: We got it now.

Annie: What are you doing in this part of the hospital?

Richie: More tests.

Annie: To see what?

Richie: Do you really give a damn?

Annie: Just trying to make conversation, Richie.

Richie: Just wait a -- fact is -- I don't know what I could say to you.

Annie: I guess the truth is out of the question?

Richie: Ok, so there's this list, and they're going to find out if I qualify to be on it.

Annie: List?

Richie: Yeah, to see if there's a match somewhere out there for a bone marrow transplant. They don't hold out much hope.

Annie: Oh.

Richie: But, don't worry -- I'm not asking you.

Annie: Because?

Richie: Because I already know the answer. Anyway, I'm just waiting here, hoping for a miracle. I figured if Ryan got one, hey, why not me?

Annie: Ryan deserves every good thing that comes his way.

Richie: Yeah, yeah -- yes, yes. St. Ryan.

Annie: Yeah, as a matter of fact. Well -- ahem --

Richie: "Well" what? Good luck? Hmm -- no. I guess that would be going too far, wouldn't it?

Annie: Well, I really should be getting back to Ryan.

Richie: Right, of course. Oh -- I just got word that Dad's not a match. Just my luck, right? I get leukemia, Dad's not a match, Mom's dead. And our parents, they -- to top it off, they only had two kids -- me and you.

Annie: I'm sorry Dad's not a match. And it is too bad you don't have another brother or sister -- just me. But then again, I was never really a good match for you, right, Richie? Isn't that what you used to always tell me?

Richie: I never knew my sister had such a great sense of humor. But, don't worry -- like I said, I'm not asking you for any favors.

Annie: Oh, no, sure you are. You're just not going to come out and ask. Instead, you're going to make me feel guilty and somehow responsible. Well, it's not going to work this time, Richie.

Richie: Wow. You know, you're already starting to sound a -- little guilty?

Annie: It's not going to work.

Richie: No, but the truth will. You see, if I get a second chance, if I were to tell you I'd get a second chance, I'd be as grateful as hell. And no more hate, no more anger.

Annie: Just like that -- whole new Richie?

Richie: Yeah. And if I got a second chance, it would do something for you, too.

Annie: And what would that be?

Richie: No matter how cruel I was or whatever terrible things I've done, you would know that you did the right thing.

Ryan: Really, Erica -- I am going to be fine and so is Kendall. They're going to find Hannah, and they're going to stop her before she hurts anybody else.

Erica: Well, from your mouth -- you know, there was a time when I was rooting for you, you and Kendall.

Ryan: And you would've been the frosting on the cake.

Erica: Oh, boy. The bullet certainly didn't get in the way of your sweet talk, some serious sweet talk.

[Ryan and Erica laugh]

Julia: Ah, you're out of bed. And you're hugging Erica. Let me guess -- you're on some serious pain pills.

Ryan: You go ahead and you stick me with whatever needles you need to, because I am not going to be brought down today.

Erica: Well, your dancing skills could use some help.

Ryan: You need to learn how to follow.

[Erica and Ryan chuckle]

Julia: Yeah, that's going to happen.

Erica: Other than that, he's absolutely fine, and he's not on pills. You can blame me for the hug. He needed a waltz partner, I needed a pep talk. And, you? Well, Julia, you look particularly sweet in your uniform.

Ryan: Ok, Julia, you do what you got to do. Bring it on -- pinch, prod, poke. Whatever it is, I'm telling you right now, I got a smile on my face, and it's not going anywhere.

Julia: Are you sure that that bullet didn't graze some little crazy spot in your head?

Ryan: It's actually a -- a whole new kind of therapy. I call it SITH.

Julia: "SITH"?

Ryan: Yes -- shot-in-the-head therapy --

[Julia chuckles]

Ryan: "SITH." Hey, it's working for me.

Julia: Hey -- go with it.

Aidan: I don't want to mess things up -- I mean, what we have. I really love Greenlee.

Kendall: Yes, I know that.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: How are you and Zach doing?

Kendall: We're good. We were -- we're really good. But I don't know --

Aidan: But what?

Kendall: What time is it? I mean, hasn't he been gone a really long time?

Aidan: No, he hasn't. He hasn't been gone long.

Kendall: No, but Zach said that he would be back soon.

Aidan: Yeah, I know what Zach said. All right? Well, look, you're feeling what we're all feeling right now. You're feeling stressed out and -- and crazed because of all the drama that's been going on. But Zach is out, and he's going to find Hannah, and he's going to make sure that everything's going to be ok. I promise you -- he's going to fix this.

Kendall: Ok -- that's what I thought last time. I don't know -- Aidan, I've just got this really bad feeling.

Aidan: Look, come on, Kendall. You're -- you're working yourself up, all right? You're working yourself into a frenzy. Remember what you always said to me -- "I'm a Kane woman, and I can handle anything"? It's true. You can, and you will.

Kendall: No, no, don't -- Aidan, please, please, don't touch me. You are not my husband.

Greenlee: It just feels so good to be outdoors, the fresh air. Oh.

Jack: Yeah, you're right, it does. I mean, it's exactly what we both needed.

Greenlee: Yeah. I mean, can you even remember back before all the bad stuff happened?

Jack: Yeah, I can, but it does seem like a lifetime ago.

Greenlee: Yeah, it was.

Jack: Yeah.

Greenlee: I mean, I've changed.

Jack: For the better.

Greenlee: Yes.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: For the better. I guess it turns out I'm actually hardheaded.

Jack: Can't imagine where you got that from.

[Jack chuckles]

Greenlee: I guess it took me being underground in a bomb shelter for a whole month almost dying to realize what I had all along -- my friends, my Aidan, my father.

Jack: Hmm. I was so worried about you -- so worried, so afraid. Honey, are you cold? You're shaking like a leaf.

Greenlee: No, I'm fine. I just -- I haven't taken a walk in forever.

Jack: Yeah, well --

Greenlee: And it turns out I'm not the superwoman I thought I was.

Jack: Yeah, so come, let's sit. Come on, come on.

Greenlee: Dad, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Jack: Do me a favor and sit.

Greenlee: Look, Joe said it's probably nothing, and he's just going to run some tests.

Jack: Honey, Joe doesn't run tests for "probably nothing," ok? I'm thinking maybe you shouldn't have left that hospital so soon.

Greenlee: Do you know how long I waited to be back in my own bed? Please, I just -- I want to be home.

Jack: Are you telling me everything --

Greenlee: Yes.

Jack: About your health?

Greenlee: Yes, yes --

Jack: Yeah?

Greenlee: Absolutely, yes.

Jack: Because you're still shaking.

Greenlee: Well, maybe it's because I still haven't gotten over my father telling me he thinks I'm in love with my best friend's husband.

Adam: You think I would hire a hit on Kendall? Why?

Zach: Because you're not man enough to come after me yourself.

Adam: Oh. Revenge killing is your style, not mine.

Zach: And what is your style, Adam? Stealing babies, burning down houses, now turning Hannah into a killer?

Adam: Oh, I'm sure she had that instinct long before she met me.

Zach: What did you offer her to come work for you? Must have been a payoff.

Adam: No, I just hired her. The reason she came back here was you. You're looking for somebody to blame, I think maybe you should take a look in the mirror. That would be something truly heroic.

Annie: Who you are, what you are -- it's never going to change.

Richie: Ok, the conversation's over, then, right?

Annie: Richie, you had some crazy mental patient call me pretending to be a doctor, telling me you had hours left to live. And me, being the idiot that I am when it comes to you, I go rushing to the hospital to be by your side. I mean, what kind of a brother does that to his sister?

Richie: "What kind of a brother"? What kind of a sister steals seven years away from her brother's life, huh? Come on.

Annie: Every time I think "give him another chance, Annie. He's -- he's your blood, he's your family," you do something so sick and cruel, it makes me ashamed I ever doubted myself.

Richie: That day you thought I was dying, I had a reason for calling you here.

Annie: How can --

Richie: I had a reason for lying to you.

Annie: How can you justify manipulating me like that?

Richie: It's easy! Because I knew you wouldn't come here any other way.

Annie: Why did you want me to come so bad?

Richie: You want the truth and nothing else? I needed you to kill me, ok? That was the day I was going to set you up to murder your own brother.

Jack: Now, you listen to me. You can't blame a father for wondering if his daughter fell in love with the man who saved her life. It does happen, you know.

Greenlee: Ok, and maybe with the old Greenlee, it would have.

Jack: But the new Greenlee?

Greenlee: No. I mean, I think that sometimes people just come into your life to help you. You know, for one intense, intimate moment, they're your world, and you wouldn't survive without them. Everything else just falls away.

Jack: And that's what you're saying happened with you and Zach in the bomb shelter?

Greenlee: Yeah, pretty much. I mean -- huh -- yes, in the past, Kendall and I were all about falling in love with each other's guys.

Jack: Well, I think it's safe to say you two were fairly notorious for that.

Greenlee: Yes -- reputations well-earned.

Jack: Hmm. But no more?

Greenlee: No. I think we got it right this time -- I mean, not just our friendship, but the men in our lives. Kendall deserves love, but so do I, and we're never going to do anything to ruin that for each other -- never.

Aidan: Kendall, I'm -- I'm not going to jump your bones.

Kendall: I -- I know that, I know. I just don't want you touching me. That's how it happened before.

Aidan: It's not how it happened before, all right? Last time, we was in a really desperate place, because we thought we'd lost the people that we love. You thought you had lost Zach, I thought I'd lost Greenlee.

Kendall: Yes, and you tried to comfort me, just like you are now.

Aidan: What are we doing? Why -- why do you keep walking away from me? Look, all I was doing was --

Kendall: Oh, God, what, Aidan? What were you doing? What?

Aidan: I will never touch you again, all right? When this is over, you won't see me, because I'm going to stay the hell away from you. That make you happy?

Kendall: Yeah, you know, well, that's not actually possible unless one of us moves away, and that's never happening.

Aidan: So, what -- what do you want me to do, then?

Kendall: I want you to leave me alone, please. I just got Zach back, I will not risk losing him again.

Aidan: All right. Like I told you, it's not going to happen again.

Kendall: Yeah, well, I never thought it would happen the first time.

Aidan: Kendall, I was just trying to reassure you, all right? For God's sake, you were in a really bad way. You were working yourself up. I'm not going to rip your clothes off and do the dirty right here on the floor. It's not going to happen.

Kendall: Yes, you're right -- it will never happen again.

Aidan: All right, well, let's just stop talking about it, then.

Kendall: Great, ok. Fine by me. Great.

[Glass shatters]

Erica: Kendall, are you ok? What in the world is going on here?

Kendall: Mother.

Erica: Kendall. What's going on?

Aidan: Nothing, there's no need to worry. Everything's -- everything's fine.

Kendall: I'm -- I am so glad that you're here. I just -- well, my nerves are just fried, and I was taking it out on Aidan.

Aidan: She's worried about Zach, and she wanted me to go look for him.

Kendall: Yeah, but he wouldn't, because Zach told him to stay here with me.

Erica: Well, that was a very good idea. I mean, I certainly trust Aidan way more than I trust those two guards out front. Look, honey, we're all here for you -- especially your husband. I mean, Zach did exactly the right thing leaving you here with Aidan.

Zach: I'm aware of my mistakes. I want you to own up to yours.

Adam: I don't know where Hannah is. If I did, I'd probably tell you -- not because I give a damn about you, but I don't like the idea of people taking pot shots at Erica's daughter.

Man: Mr. Chandler, sorry to interrupt, but there's a call for you.

Zach: Who is it?

Adam: It's -- mind your own damn business.

Man: She said she tried your cell --

Zach: "She"?

Man: Yes, but Mr. Chandler's cell is apparently out of order.

Zach: Hello?

Adam: Do you mind?

Zach: No, it's not. He's right here. It's business.

Adam: Chandler here. Oh, yes, Ms. Gamble. I want you to go ahead with the business plan for Chandler Enterprises, and I want you to get, buy as much Cambias stock as possible. Yeah, I know, I know -- it's gone through the roof. I don't care. I want everything I can get that is Zach Slater's.

Greenlee: Speaking of love, Kendall has Zach --

Jack: Yep.

Greenlee: And I have Aidan, so --

Jack: Yep.

Greenlee: What about you? What's -- what's with Erica?

Jack: Not much of anything, actually.

Greenlee: Dad, we're talking about Erica. There's got to be something.

Jack: Well, we're not together, you know that.

Greenlee: Right, but how not together are you?

Jack: Why does this all of a sudden feel like an inquisition?

Greenlee: Oh, I see -- you're allowed to quiz me about my love life, but I can't ask you anything?

Jack: No, of course, you can. Of course, you can, but there are rules involved, because I am, after all, the parent here.

Greenlee: Oh, ok.

Jack: I will tell you that we spent New Year's Eve together.

Greenlee: You did?

Jack: Yep.

Greenlee: And it was, what?

Jack: Well, we didn't bludgeon each other with the noisemakers, if that's what you're asking.

Greenlee: And at midnight, did you ring in the New Year, so to speak?

Jack: Those -- those -- those rules I mentioned before?

Greenlee: Yeah.

Jack: Here's where they apply.

Greenlee: Ok, but guess what -- I happen to know you have slept together before.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Why do I get this feeling that you're encouraging this?

Greenlee: No -- well, yes. What -- what I'm encouraging is that I think you should just take happiness wherever you can find it.

Jack: That's very good advice. And I will tell you that New Year's Eve actually felt ok. I mean, we didn't do any fighting, no blame. It was all right.

Greenlee: Good, so that's progress.

Jack: Yeah, I guess that's -- no, this, this is progress. Look at you, huh? Got a little color back in those cheeks. Oh, you're nice and warm -- that's good.

Greenlee: Well, it's probably just talking about you and Erica, but I do have one last question, a real question. Do you think that there's a future for you and Erica?

Julia: You know, they have a new nickname for you at the nurses' station?

Ryan: Nice way of not answering.

Julia: Mm-hmm. "Slim" -- that's what they're calling you.

Ryan: "Slim," as in I need to gain weight?

Julia: As in, "when he came in here, we thought his chances were pretty slim."

[Julia chuckles]

Ryan: Well, I proved them wrong. Didn't I? And now, back to you and Erica.

Julia: Hmm.

Ryan: So, what is this, like a lifelong feud or something?

Julia: Ha-ha. I assume that she was here to congratulate you on your piece of luck.

Ryan: Excuse me, but luck had nothing to do with it, ok? I knew exactly where to place my head, so that I would be shot safely, and it wouldn't hit Kendall -- very talented.

Julia: And now, Erica's your number one fan because of it.

Ryan: Yeah -- not so much yours. Or do you want to sidestep that conversation one more time?

Julia: You know, they're going to change your nickname to "nosy" instead of slim." Erica and I have never exactly been close. But now that Jack and I are friends --

Ryan: Friends?

Julia: Yeah, friends, just -- just friends. There's nothing romantic going on, but Erica's just so --

Ryan: Possessive?

Julia: Ok -- not exactly the word I would've chosen, but, yeah, let's go with that.

Ryan: Well, you know, Jack's a great guy. He's a great guy, and I'm sure he'll make a really good friend. But you never know -- I mean, Annie and I started out as being just friends and now, honestly, I couldn't imagine my life without her.

Annie: You called me to the hospital that day to kill you?

Richie: Yeah. Ryan was right all along. Since I thought I was going to die anyway, my plan was to get you to kill me, so you could spend the rest of your life in jail. Is that enough truth for one day?

Annie: Oh, my God, Richie. Did you really hate me that much?

Richie: I just wanted you to know what it was like to be locked up.

Annie: You know why I testified against you.

Richie: No, why you lied in court --

Annie: I had to stop you from hurting anybody else.

Richie: St. Annie, always the saint.

Annie: Well, don't count on it anymore. That letter -- that letter that you wanted me to take that day, that explained everything that you've done?

Richie: I still have it. Do you want to see it? I -- I really don't know if I want to give it to you now.

Annie: Please, Richie, let me have the letter. What could be so bad in the letter? My God, you already admitted trying to set me up to murder you. What could be worse than that?

Richie: You're right. What? You afraid to open it? Deep, dark family secrets finally revealed? A confession, an apology, my last will and testament? Why don't you give it back, Annie, ok? Just let it be.

Annie: I can't.

Annie: After you were dead, by my hand, this is what you were going to leave me with? Nothing?

Richie: What would -- what would be left to say?

Annie: You're right. It's all about your actions -- it always has been. No words, just what you've done.

Richie: This time, it's a little different.

Annie: No, I don't think so. Blank pages. After all the time that I'd wondered what you'd written.

Richie: I'm sorry. I am sorry. I didn't want to give that to you, but you got to give me points at least for telling you the truth, the absolute truth. I didn't want to give those to you, but I had to, so you'd see that's my last prop in my bag of tricks. Ok? If I just get a second chance --

Annie: Oh, please.

Richie: No, come -- if I get a second chance, I will be the brother that you've always wanted me to be.

Annie: No, I've always wanted that, Richie. I've wanted to see this good Richie just waiting for an opportunity to come out.

Richie: That's what I'm promising you.

Annie: No, no -- but there is no good side, Richie. It's almost like you don't have a choice. You don't even have the option. You're just evil, down to your soul.

Richie: How would you know? I'm telling you for the first time ever that I feel like I have a choice, that there's something good inside of me. And if I do live, I am never, ever going to hurt you again.

Annie: But, guess what, Richie -- that's the same thing that will happen if you die.

Erica: Ok. Now that I know you're ok, something still doesn't make sense to me.

Kendall: Oh, come on, Mom, don't give me that look.

Erica: What look?

Kendall: That look.

Aidan: Zach trusted me to look after Kendall and that's exactly what I'm going to do. So, why don't you guys talk? I'm going to go check in on the guards.

Kendall: Yeah, I think you -- you should do that. It's -- it's time.

Erica: Now, why don't you tell me the real story?

Kendall: The real story, Mom, is that this has nothing to do with Aidan or me.

Erica: Who, then?

Kendall: You and Jack.

Erica: What?

Kendall: Yeah -- oh, come on, Mom. I've seen the way that -- that you look at Jack when he's talking to other women, or to -- to Julia or even to that stupid hostess at the -- at the Yacht Club. I mean, you basically turn green and then make some snotty remark.

Erica: You know, the only snotty remarks I'm hearing are those coming out of your mouth.

Kendall: I'm sorry. Mom, I just -- I know that you miss Jack, and I think he misses you, too. And I'm feeling guilty, because maybe it's partly my fault.

Jack: I don't think it's a question of whether I want it to be over with Erica and me.

Greenlee: So, then, what's the problem?

Jack: Erica knew that Kendall was putting you in danger. When somebody messes with my kids, I find it very difficult to just go back.

Greenlee: Ok. But, you and Erica, you've -- you've shot your love down before, only to have it come back stronger.

Jack: Yeah, I know. This was different. I mean, she -- Erica knew that Kendall was trying to hurt you, and --

Greenlee: But you still care about Kendall.

Jack: I do. She's like a daughter to me and that's ironic, I know, but I guess maybe that's why I could excuse her. I could forgive her. But Erica was a -- is a totally different story.

Greenlee: Wow. So life gets complicated.

Jack: Hmm. Indeed, it does.

Greenlee: If only I had a magic wand.

[Jack chuckles]

Jack: Your wish, my command. Here you go, sis.

[Greenlee laughs]

[Jack laughs]

Greenlee: Ok.

Jack: Hmm?

Greenlee: Um -- I wish for life to go back to a time when it was less complicated.

Jack: Ooh. Great sentiment, but I think you just wasted a spell, because there was no such time. You know? It's just that we tend to remember the good things. The good old days are nothing more than us carefully selecting our memories, editing our life, so that we can get through it, remembering only the good stuff.

Greenlee: Yeah, like right now.

Jack: Yeah, like right now.

Annie: I love you. And I promise I won't let anything get in the way of our happiness ever again. You, me, Emma, and Spike -- you're all the family that I need.

Jack: How about a hot chocolate for the walk home?

Greenlee: Yes.

Jack: Yeah?

Greenlee: Extra hot, please.

Jack: No, you don't have to tell me. No whipped cream -- I got it.

Greenlee: You know what? Call me crazy -- double whip.

Jack: You're crazy. You got it. Be right back.

Greenlee: Oh -- hmm.

[Feeling lightheaded, Greenlee has to hold on to the wall.]

Jack: Hey, honey, do you want a small, medium, or large?

[Jack's voice echoes in her head]

Greenlee: Um, a -- a large, please.

Jack: You got it.

Erica: Look, whatever is going on between Jack and me, it's not your fault, ok? It's maybe a little bit mine, and it's his. But I certainly don't want that to happen to you and Zach.

Kendall: Don't worry. It won't. But I am still getting a little worried about Zach. I mean, he still hasn't checked in yet.

Erica: Well, honey, I mean, if something were going on, you -- you certainly would know.

Kendall: I would just feel better if I knew where he was.

Adam: Pull up Hannah Nichols' file, distribute her photograph to all of my security people. Yes, don't -- keep her out of the building. Yeah, and notify my son. Send two more bodyguards to my house. I'm not taking any chances.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Slater.

Hannah: I bet you're crazy with worry. Do you still get that little worry wrinkle above your nose when you get all worked up? I need to see you -- immediately. And I bet you're just dying to see me, too.

[In Hannah's hotel room, Sean lies across her bed asleep]

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

Babe: So why did you come by last night?

J.R.: To ask you out on a date.

Kendall (to Erica): Just because you cheated on your husband doesn't mean I cheated on mine.

Aidan (to Zach): You just got your life and your family back. Why are you acting like you got some kind of death wish?
