Hannah: Don't -- No!
Zach: No --
Hannah: Ah, ah, ah, ah!
Aidan: I've got you, Zach!
Aidan: Hold on tight.
Kendall: Zach! My God, Zach. Oh.
Aidan: Hold on tight.
Greenlee: Aidan, we're here, we're here.
Kendall: Zach, Zach, please don't let go! Please!
Zach: I'm right here. They're going to get us out.
Hannah: I can't. I --
Zach: Yes, you can. Don't look down -- look at me! Believe me. I'm going to save you this time.
[Locked doorknob jiggles]
[Pounding on door]
Erica: Jack, you're going to kill yourself.
Jack: What would you like me to do, Erica? You want me to just wait until our daughters come back to let us out?
Erica: See what I mean?
Jack: What the hell were they thinking anyway to enlist us?
Erica: Well, their -- their men were in trouble, they wanted to help, and we were standing in their way.
Jack: Oh, my, listen to you, the voice of calm. A couple of minutes ago, you wanted to tear that door down.
Erica: Well, I have learned in the last few months that there are certain things that even I can't control. What?
Jack: Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Erica: No, what? Tell me -- what were you thinking? Anything -- tell me.
Jack: I was just thinking that this is not the first time you and I have been in a situation like this where we're stuck in, locked someplace together, and we can't get out.
Erica: Hmm. That's true.
Erica: Well, then, I -- I wonder what happens next.
J.R.: So, what happened, Richie? The Psych ward gave you a free pass? Where are your handlers?
Richie: I'm out for good, buddy.
Babe: When did this happen?
Richie: A few minutes ago. I -- I thought you might want to know.
J.R.: Oh -- hmm. Well, now she knows, so you can leave because, as you can see, we're a little bit busy.
[Annie wraps a blanket around Ryan]
Annie: Ryan, oh, come on. Come inside, it's freezing out here. You're going to catch a cold. Ryan? Can you hear me? Ryan, what's going on? What are you doing out here?
Ryan: Let me just look at you, ok? Wow. I have honestly never seen you like this out here in the moonlight like this. Is it -- is it possible that all this time, and I never truly realized how beautiful you are? Is that possible?
Annie: And -- and I love that you think that, but --
Ryan: But you think I'm crazy, right?
Annie: No. No.
Ryan: Sure you do. Of course, you do. Well, let's hear it for all the crazy people out there, because you got something going on, you people!
Annie: Ryan, the neighbors --
Ryan: Ok, sorry -- shh. I'm not crazy.
Ryan: I'm not.
Ryan: I just want to feel everything. I want to feel everything -- especially you.
Annie: I'm right here.
Ryan: Annie? Do you have any idea how lucky we are? To be here right now, out here under the stars like this, under this sky that's covering us right now like a blanket? I mean -- hey. Hey. Let's spend the night out here, under the stars.
Annie: I -- I don't think Joe --
Ryan: Come on.
Annie: I don't think Joe would recommend that your first night back, ok?
Ryan: Well, I'm recommending it, ok, because I'm fine. I have never felt better in my entire life. I -- here. Do I feel cold to you?
Annie: No, you actually feel warm. I -- you don't seem like you have a fever.
Ryan: No, I don't have a fever. Annie, it's not fever. It's just -- it's -- it's life. It's our love. And it's going to keep us warm always, it really is.
Ryan: Let me keep you warm right now.
Babe: J.R., please, will you just watch Little A in there for me? I'm not going to be long.
J.R.: Oh, come on, Babe. You don't owe this guy anything.
Babe: I'm asking you to do this for me, ok?
J.R.: I'll be right here.
Babe: Thank you.
Richie: A little insecure, is he?
Babe: You should have called first.
Richie: You're right, I'm sorry. Look, if you and your ex have something going on --
Babe: We went out to build a snowman with our son, ok?
Richie: Ok. It just looked as if maybe I --
Babe: You interrupted us? No, you didn't.
Richie: It's none of my business, right?
Babe: Look, Richie, what do you want? Why are you really here?
Richie: Come on, you know the answer to that question. I just got sprung from another cage, and I wanted to spend it with the only person in this world I care about, and that happens to be you.
Jack: Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Erica: No, no, it's ok -- just your arm.
Jack: Well, what -- my --
Jack: Is that better?
Erica: Yes, thank you.
Erica: Uh -- you're still petrified, aren't you?
Jack: Well, yeah, yeah -- of course. Aren't you?
Erica: Yeah, I'm petrified.
Erica: I mean, when I think of what Kendall's walking into, I -- I could just scream.
Jack: And Greenlee.
Erica: Oh, yes, her, too -- of course.
Jack: Of course.
Erica: Jack, I -- I'm concerned about both of them, really I am. Come on, give me a little credit for a change, ok?
Jack: All right, ok. My apologies.
Erica: Thank you.
Erica: So --
Erica: How are you?
Erica: Uh -- small talk. I just thought it might take our mind off things.
Jack: Ok, um -- I'm good, I'm good. I'm -- I'm really good. How are you?
Erica: Well, practice is good?
Jack: Yeah, yeah.
Jack: I can't complain, making a living. How's the show?
Erica: Although, I do still get a lot of mail about you.
Jack: About me?
Erica: Yes. Well, it seems that "The New Divorce" was a big hit with -- well, the audience, anyhow.
Jack: Seems like a thousand years ago.
Erica: Yeah. We had fun, though, didn't we?
Jack: Yeah, we did.
Erica: Well, you're right. It was a long time ago.
Jack: Oh, I'm sorry. Was that your foot?
Erica: No -- oh, no, no, no.
Jack: You liar.
Erica: Hey -- watch who you're talking to, buddy.
Jack: I know exactly who I'm talking to, buddy.
[Erica and Jack chuckle]
Erica: Oh, it's just so funny. I mean, sometimes we can work so well together. And then other times --
Jack: Sometimes, we just don't.
Erica: Close quarters seems to agree with us.
Jack: Yeah. So maybe we should just stay locked up in here forever.
Erica: I can think of things that are far worse.
Zach: Stay with me!
Aidan: I've got you, Zach. I'm going to try and pull you up, all right?
Kendall: Zach, we're all here!
Zach: I hear you, that's good. Everything's fine.
Kendall: I love you!
Zach: I love you.
Hannah: It's ok. I know.
Aidan: Greenlee, you can't.
Greenlee: No, Aidan, I'm fine, I'm ok.
Aidan: Look, what are you doing?
Greenlee: I'm going to help you with Zach. Let's go, let's pull him up!
Aidan: Oh. Right. Then try and pull him up there, Zach, on three, all right? You ready?
Kendall: Yeah, yeah, ok.
Aidan: One, two -- three! Help me.
[Greenlee and Aidan groan]
Greenlee: Ok, good! Keep going, keep going, keep going!
Kendall: Ok, we've got you, Zach!
Aidan: All right, let's go again.
Kendall: Ok, I'm pulling.
Aidan: On three -- come on.
Greenlee: Hold on! Pull!
Zach: Hannah, are you looking at me?
Hannah: Ugh! Ok, ok. I'm looking at you.
Zach: Ok. We're almost there -- you hear me?
Hannah: I do hear you.
Kendall: Keep going, keep going!
Zach: I'm sorry about what my dad did you. I'm sorry I wasn't there. I'm here now. Believe me.
Hannah: I believe you, Zach.
Zach: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Hannah: It's all right, Zach. Everything is just the way it should be. Goodbye.
Zach: Would you hold on to me? Hurry up!
[Zach groans as Hannah lets go]
Greenlee: Come on, Zach.
Kendall: Well, come on, Zach!
Zach: Let me go!
Greenlee: No, no, Zach!
Aidan: She is gone!
Greenlee: Please, Zach!
Aidan: You did everything you could -- where are you going? Stay here, stay here.
Zach: Take your hands off me, I got to go -- I'm going to pull her out of the river!
Kendall: It is too dangerous.
Aidan: If you go down to that river, you're going to get yourself killed.
Zach: What do you want me to do? I had her in my hands, I was holding her, and I let her go. Now, I got to bring her back!
Kendall: No, no! You do -- no! You need to stay here with me, for me and the boys! You promised me that you would never leave us again. I will not let you break that promise. I will not.
Greenlee: I can't believe it happened again --
Greenlee: Just like with Leo.
Aidan: Shh, it's over.
[Car door closes]
Derek: Where's the shooter?
Aidan: Let's go.
Derek: Where's Hannah Nichols?
Aidan: She's down there.
Derek: Send the inflatable with two surface teams to look for Hannah Nichols. Downstream from the rocks!
Jack: You are an amazing woman.
Erica: I'm pleased you still notice.
Jack: Grace under pressure, indomitable.
Erica: Not always.
Jack: I want to be honest with you. I wish that this --
Erica: Had never happened?
Erica: Jack, you have no idea how many sleepless nights I'd lay there, I'd pound my head against the pillow and wish that I could rearrange the past. But I can't, I know. No, we have to move on. The question is, where?
Jack: Yeah, that's a hell of a good question, all right.
Erica: Oh, I'm just reminded of the last time that we were, uh, locked up in a confined space together.
Jack: Yeah, on our boat before the wedding.
Erica: Yeah, you kidnapped me.
Jack: You bet I kidnapped you. You were so damn stubborn, you gave me no other choice.
Erica: I was not that bad.
Jack: Are you kidding me? You pretended to fall overboard.
Erica: Ok, well, so, maybe I was a little extreme, but it was all so I could just make sure that we didn't make that mistake again of -- of not being together.
Erica: Well, is there a phone in here?
Jack: That's my cell phone -- what is wrong with my head? I didn't think to look for it. Hello?
Julia: Hi, Jack. I'm sorry to bother you. I just had a legal question I wanted to run by you and --
Jack: Great. Listen, I -- I kind of need your help.
Julia: What's wrong?
Jack: Could you come over to Kendall and Zach's, please? I'm stuck in a closet.
Jack: It's a long story, I'll explain later. Could you get over here as quick as you can?
Julia: I'm on my way.
Jack: Thanks, thanks. That was -- that was Julia. She's on her way over, we'll be out of here in no time.
Erica: Julia? Wow. How interesting.
J.R.: She's got 10 minutes, tops. Then I'm kicking that loser out of here.
Richie: Come on, you're shivering.
Babe: I'm all right, Richie.
Richie: What, are -- are you afraid that J.R. in there is going to get the wrong idea about you and me?
Babe: No, he won't, because there is no "you and me."
Richie: Ok. I won't push.
Babe: But you do push, Richie, when you say things like I'm the only person you care about.
Richie: It's true.
Babe: Well, I don't want to be that person anymore, ok? I thought we talked about that.
Richie: We did. But that kiss gave me the idea that we're going to move past that conversation.
Babe: Well, then I gave you the wrong idea. I was just happy for you, that's all.
Richie: If you say so.
Babe: So, how did you get released?
Babe: You know, from the hospital? Why did they suddenly let you go?
Richie: Well, despite the --
Richie: Good efforts of my big, bad brother-in-law to keep me locked up for the rest of my life, an entire squad of shrinks declared me legally sane. How about that?
Babe: That's great! I mean, have you talked to Annie about being a donor? She'll come around.
Richie: Sure, she will. Yeah.
Babe: So, I mean, are -- are you feeling all right? I mean, do you need anything?
Richie: Now, there's a loaded question.
Babe: I just meant that --
Richie: Yeah, I know, I know, I know. You were just being polite. [As Babe] So, what do you think about the Phillies this year, Richie? Do you think they need more pitching? [Normal voice] You can pitch me all the politeness you want, but the fact remains that kiss happened, and it wasn't just to congratulate me. You know it, I know it. Now, let's cut the crap and let's start talking about that.
Annie: Whew -- oh, oh, oh! I've got the shivers! Oh.
Ryan: Really? Good -- that means I still got the magic touch.
Ryan: Here, here, here, here.
Ryan: Get over here, get over here.
Annie: Hmm, it feels so good to touch you --
Annie: And feel you. Every woman on earth would kill to feel this lucky.
Ryan: You know, it's funny you should say that, actually.
Annie: Why, you plan on marrying every woman? Because I'm not going to be ok with that.
Ryan: No. It's just I was thinking about when I drove off that cliff two years ago and how incredibly dead I was inside, dead in so many ways, dead to so many people, you know? But mostly myself, and now after the gunshot. I just -- I just feel so alive!
Ryan: And not just because I have a second chance -- I just have all this energy.
Annie: Yeah, I noticed.
Ryan: Huh. I'm serious. When I think about all the time that I wasted just, you know, out there trying to make my mark, whatever that means, just worrying about me, only me -- I mean, that's just complete garbage. That means nothing.
Annie: You are hardly nothing.
Ryan: No, that's not what I mean. Just think about who I am and what I am right now. All I am is I'm a guy who is incredibly blessed, blessed with a beautiful, healthy family, with friends, with -- with people that care about me, with -- you know, with money. God knows I've been very lucky in that department -- mostly due to Alexander Cambias.
Annie: It wasn't all him.
Ryan: No, but think about it, really. Most of what I built came from the vault of a cold-blooded killer, Annie. And that has to change.
Annie: So, what is it? What do you want to do?
Ryan: How would you feel about changing the world?
Derek: We're going to need to file a report on this, Aidan.
Aidan: Ok. Well, then stick this in your report -- Zach Slater did everything he could. He even risked his own life to save a woman that he once cared about. And she slipped, and she fell into the water. It was a tragic accident.
Zach: What are they doing down there? Why haven't they found anything?
Kendall: The rescue team is working as fast as they can.
Zach: I should be down there.
Greenlee: Zach, stop it. No, listen! Hannah is gone, she's gone. Nobody would survive these falls -- you have to accept that, and you have to accept it's not your fault.
Zach: Oh, but it is. I was late. I was years too late.
Aidan: So, are you all right? Is everything ok?
Greenlee: Yeah, I -- I think we're good.
Zach: Thanks for saving my life.
Aidan: Well, I had a pretty good support team to back me up, eh?
Greenlee: Zach, I know you don't want to hear this, but maybe it's the end of all the darkness for all of us.
Kendall: Well, I'd like to think so.
Derek: We've got three more rescue units coming in. We'll work all through the night if we have to.
Zach: Thank you, Derek.
Zach: I'm sorry.
Kendall: For what?
Zach: For putting you in a position where you could worry about me again.
Kendall: Well, Zach, we don't have to talk about that right now.
Zach: I just -- I -- so I needed help, and I wanted to come and just figure out why and what was going on.
Kendall: Did you figure it out?
Zach: Yeah, I did. I came up here, because I wanted to kill Hannah because of what she did to you. And then she started talking. It all started when we were kids. I was 18, going to school, she was 17. Pregnant with my kid. Staying at my father's house.
Kendall: Hannah and your dad? Oh, my God.
Zach: And she waited for me to come back. All her life, waited for me. What is that, you know? I -- I had her. I had her in my hand. I had her right here. Ethan's mom. And then I let -- I let her go, and I lost them both.
Kendall: No, Zach. Hannah let go. It was her decision to leave this world, and there is nothing -- nothing that you or anyone else could have done about it.
Julia: Jack, where are you?
Erica: Oh, I see we've been saved by the cavalry to the rescue.
Jack: Julia, we're in here.
Julia: Oh. Oh, ok, I see it now. Oh! Hello?
Jack: Thank you.
Julia: Yeah. Oh. Erica, I didn't know that you were in there, too.
Erica: Oh, yes. You can always count on me to be in the most unexpected places. Thank you, Julia. Thank you so much for saving us, because without you, heaven knows how long we might have stayed in that closet. Right, Jack?
Jack: Absolutely. Ahem.
Erica: Oh, by the way, Julia, why were you calling Jack?
Julia: Oh, I had a legal thing I wanted to run by him.
Erica: And it couldn't wait?
Jack: Erica --
Erica: Well, I mean, you have no idea what our family has been going through?
Julia: Yes, I do, I just --
Erica: You did not see the news reports that have been all over the place about Hannah Nichols and what she's done to our family?
Julia: Yes, I did, and if I could just finish a sentence --
Erica: Oh, please, please -- I'm quite sure that nothing takes precedence over your date. Well, you know, your sister Maria had this really awful sense of self-importance. I just think it's so terrible to share that gene pool.
Annie: So, how exactly are you planning on changing the world?
Ryan: I don't know. I don't know. I think -- I think we should start by giving away all that money. Don't -- don't worry, we got plenty. There's going to be plenty for us and plenty for the kids and plenty for our future. I mean, all the rest of it. All the Cambias money, you know? We just have to do something good with that money, do you know what I mean?
Annie: I think I'm -- I'm starting to get the point.
Ryan: I mean, this -- this is all we need right here. This life in this place with Spike and with Emma. I mean, this is my dream.
Annie: Well, Richie, this shooting, Spike's surgeries -- our dream hasn't exactly been easy, Ryan.
Ryan: I know. I'll give you that. That's true. Maybe it's just a way for the Gods to tell us that we have to put some back in the pot, that's all.
Annie: So, what do you want to do first?
Ryan: Uh -- I don't know. Why don't you and I just come up with some stuff? We'll think about some stuff. I'll talk to Jon, I'll talk to Zach. Maybe he'll want in. We'll just -- we'll just open the door, and we'll see who comes in. We'll see, you know, who needs it the most. I -- I really believe that we'll know when it's right. You still think I'm nuts?
Annie: No, I never thought that.
Ryan: Oh, yeah I don't know. I mean, here's a half-naked guy running around on the terrace talking about giving away all his money to change the world. Sounds pretty crazy to me.
Annie: I think it's wonderful. I think you're wonderful.
Babe: Well, you are pretty sure of yourself, aren't you?
Richie: Well, I'm pretty sure when someone likes me, if that's what you mean.
Babe: It was never a matter of me liking you or not, Richie. Or -- or even being attracted to you.
Richie: So you admit that much?
Babe: Look, it wouldn't matter if I was. I told you where I stood on this. My work and my son -- those are my priorities right now.
Richie: Ok. Then tell me why J.R.'s in a towel prancing around your apartment like he owns the place, like he owns you.
Babe: I told you.
Richie: Right, right, right. You and J.R. were going to build a snowman, but he wants me to believe differently.
Babe: Look, then that's J.R.'s business, ok? It has nothing to do with me. He and I are Little Adam's parents, and after all of the hell that we have put him through, we just want to be good parents, whether we're together or not.
Richie: Good friends?
Babe: Yes, yes, good friends, just like you and me. And that's all we're going to be, Richie, so you can make whatever you want to out of that kiss, but it's not going to go any further than that.
Little Adam: Where's Mommy?
J.R.: Well, Mommy's just taking out the trash. She'll be back in a minute.
Richie: Look, I understand that this is hard for you. It's a lot for you to take in, me showing up without an expiration date --
Babe: Richie --
Richie: No, no, no, just -- just let me finish, ok? Hear me out. I was going to die. And now, there's this slight possibility that I'm not, so I'm not going to waste any more of my time being careful and telling you what you want to hear. I like you. I want to be with you, and more than just friends. You know me well enough by now to know that I'm not the type of guy that gives up easily.
Babe: I -- I think you better go now.
Richie: What, do you want me to lie to you? Give you some BS about how understanding I am?
Babe: I -- I told you how I feel, Richie.
Richie: And I'm telling you I don't believe it.
J.R.: Is there a problem out here?
Richie: No, there's no problem.
Babe: Richie was just leaving.
J.R.: So soon? Someone's calling for you, Babe. What's the matter, Richie? You don't look too happy. Is it just me, or did Babe kick you to the curb?
Derek: We're going to need to get an official statement. Zach?
Zach: I'm alive.
Derek: Did Hannah have any family you're aware of? Anyone we can contact?
Derek: That's too bad.
Zach: Yeah, it is too bad. If she had a family, maybe things would have turned out differently.
Kendall: Thank you.
Aidan: For what?
Kendall: For saving Zach, again.
Kendall: I owe you so much. So how's Greenlee doing?
Aidan: She's -- she's weak. You know how she is. She's denying it. She's stubborn. Why did you let her come out here?
Kendall: Aidan, do you honestly think I could have stopped her?
Aidan: I guess it'd be like trying to stop you, right?
Aidan: Well, it's over. Now we can move on.
Kendall: I hope so. You know, Greenlee loves you.
Aidan: Well, I need to hear that from her, I don't need to hear it from you. I love her, too.
Kendall: Ok, well, she thinks that something's wrong. I mean, she feels like you're acting different to her.
Aidan: What do you mean?
Kendall: It has nothing to do with us. She doesn't know about us. She can never know, and neither can Zach.
Aidan: Well, you're right, yeah, but what's this about Greenlee?
Kendall: You need to make things right again. You need to make things the way that they used to be. And then maybe we can all really move on.
Zach: This is where Leo died. Sorry.
Greenlee: Yeah. I blamed myself, too.
Derek: Yeah. I need a subsurface team here at first light, ready to go in and rake the bottom of that river. We have a body to find.
Kendall: Yeah, you know what? I'll tell you all about it when I see you. Right now, I just need some alone time with Zach. I love you, too, Mom. Bye.
Aidan: Are you tired?
Greenlee: A little. But I'm happy you're safe.
Aidan: Then let's go home, shall we?
Zach: Is there anything else?
Derek: Nah. Go home, get some rest. I'll call you if we have any more questions, or news.
Zach: Thanks, Derek.
Jack: So what did they say?
Erica: They're all fine!
Jack: Oh, my God. Thank God.
Jack: Hey --
Jack: Did they catch Hannah?
Erica: Well, Hannah apparently fell into the river. There is a rescue crew looking for her right now. Just, it's really late. It's dark.
Julia: That's terrible.
Erica: Yes. Yes, it is. Well, thank you so much for rescuing us, Julia. I'm sure that you will both have a laugh or two about all this on -- on your date.
Jack: It's not a date, Erica.
Jack: Julia called for some legal advice.
Erica: Legal advice, right. Yes, whatever you say. And I'm sure that you will both have a wonderful time doing -- whatever it is you're doing.
Julia: Whew, boy. That's what it feels like, huh?
Julia: To be on Erica's hit list. It's pretty scary.
Jack: No, actually, she just likes to yank my chain. It amuses her.
Julia: Yeah. Well -- but, hey, everything's good, huh? How are you feeling? You must be relieved. What?
Jack: Maybe it's not such a bad idea, after all.
Julia: Excuse me?
Jack: Nice dinner, couple of cocktails, some great conversation. A date, you and me. Why not?
Annie: This is going to sound stupid, and shallow, or stupid and shallow, but --
Ryan: But what?
Annie: Saving the world kind of turns me on.
Ryan: Oh, yeah?
Ryan: Me, too.
Richie: So is this the part where we duke it out?
J.R.: Oh -- no, no, no, no. I don't think you want to go there.
Richie: Tough guy, huh?
J.R.: Tough enough for the likes of you.
Richie: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I can see that. But you know what? The thing is, Junior, I've been around tough guys for a long time. Some of them aren't so tough any more. Some of them are even dead.
J.R.: Yeah? Is that a threat?
Richie: No, man, I'm a lover, not a fighter. Hmm. I will see you around later, bro.
[After J.R. goes inside, Richie watches the happy family through the window]
Richie: Oh, yes. I will see you around.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Tad: Is that a lei around your neck or are you just happy to see me?
Krystal: Come over here and find out.
Adam (to Colby): I have a job for you. It involves Tad and Krystal.
Kendall (to Zach): Kiss me all you want, you can kiss me all over, I'm not going to stop talking.
