[Voice of woman screaming, scream echoes in Greenlee's mind]
Greenlee: This is where Leo died. Just like Hannah.
Aidan: They're still searching for her.
Greenlee: Yeah, but they'll never find her, just like they never found Leo. For so many years, I kept thinking if I was just stronger, I -- if I could just grab on to anything --
Aidan: Greenlee, you did everything you possibly could to save him.
Greenlee: But it still haunts me. Just like what happened with Zach and Hannah will always haunt him.
Kendall: I made you some green tea. Ok, I know you hate the stuff, so you want a beer? Maybe a scotch?
Zach: I'm fine.
Kendall: How could you be after what just happened? Come on, Zach, please talk to me.
Zach: What do you want to know? I gave my statement to the police.
Kendall: I know how hard you fought to save Hannah.
Zach: And I couldn't, end of story.
Kendall: Ok, this is a woman that you once loved. The -- the mother of your dead son. A woman who was still in love with you. And all you can say is "end of story"? I don't think so.
Tad: What are you doing? I thought you were at work.
Krystal: Yeah. I got off early. What are you doing? What are you hiding there?
Tad: Oh, nothing, just a little -- paperwork. We have paperwork.
Krystal: Since when do you do paperwork at home?
Tad: Since I feel like being at home and not in the office, why?
Krystal: Come on, Tad. Come on. What's on the computer?
Tad: Nothing. No, I told --
Krystal: Well, no -- well, open the lid!
Tad: I told you, paperwork. Why should I open the lid?
Krystal: Why not?
Tad: Because. For one thing, you might not like what you see.
Adam: I have a job for you.
Colby: I already work at The Comeback.
Adam: Oh, no, no, this is a more personal nature. It involves Tad and Krystal.
Colby: What about them?
Adam: Well, I need your help, but I'm going to give them a wedding reception.
Erica: Oh, good. You're here. I've been needing this. I deserve this, too. My family's been through such a difficult time. Between my oldest daughter and my latest ex. You know him. You know Jack. You know how he can be. And then, of course, there's his daughter Greenlee. She's a nightmare. Of course, you know that story, don't you? So you know what I really, truly believe? I believe that I am in just the right place. Alone with a strong man who will do everything I ask.
Adam: What I'm planning is a good thing. Come on now. I've -- I acted like a jerk, and now I'm trying to make things better.
Colby: By having a party for Tad and Krystal?
Adam: No. Trust me, Colby, I just want to see Krystal happy.
Colby: Then be honest with me, Dad. What are you really up to?
Krystal: What is it you don't want me to see?
Tad: No, get away from me. No.
Tad: You honestly think I'm going to tell you what I think I don't want you to see? Forget it.
Krystal: Oh, come on, now, this isn't even funny, Tad. What are you doing, looking at dirty pictures here on the computer?
Tad: What if I am? I'm not dead yet.
Krystal: Tad, there are children in this house. You're sitting around looking at X-rated material in the living room?
Tad: I said "what if I am?" I didn't say "I am."
Krystal: All right, ok, stop with the double talk.
Tad: No. No, go away. No!
Krystal: Now, give me that!
Tad: Oh, oh, no! No!
Krystal: Tad, I mean it! I'm serious.
Krystal: Give it to me. Tad, Tad, give me -- give me that computer. I'm going to get it from you. I'm going to get you now!
Tad: You wanton hussy!
Krystal: No, give it here!
Tad: Just like that. I want a woman with a fire in her eyes. I don't need the internet. I got the real thing right here in my own living room. Don't tickle. That's not fair.
Krystal: You show me, you --
Tad: Fine, fine, fine. Take it, take it, take it. Go, go, go, go, go. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Tad: I'm hardheaded?
Krystal: It's a travel site.
Tad: Oh, well done, Sherlock.
Krystal: So, what? What, you're -- you're planning a trip to Maui?
Tad: No. I was thinking about -- about planning our honeymoon.
Greenlee: Leo was my first love, and Ryan is one of the greatest men I have ever known.
Aidan: Yeah, he's definitely one of the good ones.
Greenlee: But you're my hero, Aidan. When everyone else thought that we were dead, when Zach and I were missing and everyone gave up, you and Kendall -- you, you hung on.
Aidan: Greenlee --
Greenlee: Because you believed in love, and you believed in us.
Aidan: Greenlee, I want --
Greenlee: No, Aidan, you don't get to argue with me. You are my hero, and I am so proud and lucky to be with you. And if Leo was here right now, he would give me a high-five, because I did it. I finally got it right with you.
Kendall: Just talk to me. Tell -- I mean, tell me what's really going on inside of you. For God sakes, you were -- you were -- you were trapped in a bomb shelter. You were missing for weeks, and you were cold and hungry, and you almost died.
Zach: Well, now I'm here. All worked out. Why don't you vacuum this place?
Kendall: Well, you know what? Don't change the subject here. Listen, you never even really opened up about all the time that you spent with Greenlee. Or when you were alone with Hannah on that cliff.
Zach: Why are you doing this?
Kendall: Because I'm sick of you putting up this -- this barrier between us. I am your wife. I need you to communicate with me.
Zach: A woman is dead. Another innocent woman, dead, victimized by my twisted family. So I'm sorry, I don't want to sit here and talk about how I ruined another life, that's all.
Kendall: Zach, that's not what I was saying.
Zach: No? I failed Hannah, same way I failed Ethan. You want me to sit here, drink tea and talk about it? It's not going to change anything.
Kendall: See, this is exactly what I'm talking about. You are obviously upset.
Zach: Ok, and let me deal with it my way.
Kendall: No, I won't let you cut me out, and I will not abandon you. Ok. Go ahead, Zach. Go ahead and say it. You want me to leave. You want to push me away again.
Zach: I don't want you to go anywhere.
Kendall: Good. Because I'm not.
Kendall: Well, good. Well, I'm here. I'm -- I'm -- I'm here when you need me.
Zach: I do need you. I need you to be my wife. I need you to be the reason why I made it out of that hole in the first place. And I need you to be the person that understands that I need to grieve in my own way, my own time, and deal with these demons my own way and not drag you down with it.
Kendall: You won't.
Zach: Before Hannah died, you know, she told me how scared she'd been and how abandoned she felt and how lost -- her whole life, and -- and -- it's going to take a minute to figure that out, that's all.
Kendall: Ok, well, I get that. But maybe -- I don't know -- maybe -- maybe you need to talk to someone.
Zach: Hey --
Kendall: Maybe unburden yourself.
Zach: I'm not a talker. You know that. And even if I were, I -- there's -- there's some things that are better left not talked about.
Kendall: You're right. I mean, we all have things like that. Ok, I'm really sorry I pushed you.
Zach: What did you say?
Kendall: I said I'm sorry I pushed you. I'm sorry.
Zach: I am, too. It just -- it's going to take a little time.
Kendall: Yeah, and like you said, you shouldn't have to talk about it.
Zach: No. But there is something that I would like for you to do.
Aidan: Here, grab this blanket. I'm going to start a fire. I'll be right back.
Greenlee: Wait -- wait, wait, wait, wait. Come here. Come -- come sit with me.
Aidan: I thought you said you were cold.
Greenlee: Well, I am, but I thought maybe we could find another way to get my temperature up. Maybe some skin-on-skin action.
Aidan: Greenlee, you just got out of the hospital.
Greenlee: Right. See? Right there -- why are you treating me like I'm some porcelain doll?
Aidan: I'm not. Why are you mad at me, because I just want to take care of you?
Greenlee: I know you want to take care of me, but I need you to -- I just want you to kiss me. I just want you to kiss me so my legs buckle.
Aidan: And I want that, too. All right? I really do, but it's just --
Greenlee: It's just what? It's just that I was in the hospital? I know. I know what I've been through.
Aidan: You need time to recuperate.
Greenlee: No. Don't tell me what I need. Aidan, I am a big girl, and I know what I need. I need us, I want us.
Aidan: You have -- you have us. I'm not going --
Greenlee: I want what we were. Where is the sparks and the sparring? And I want broken bones and -- and mercy sex and --
Aidan: Greenlee, Greenlee -- Greenlee --
Greenlee: Just take me to bed, right here, right now.
Krystal: I can't just leave The Comeback.
Tad: Oh, who are you talking to? Kyle would kill himself for you, and we both know that Babe is almost as good at running that place as you are.
Krystal: Are you forgetting about Jenny?
Tad: 24-hour daycare, mamasan.
Krystal: I don't know.
Tad: No, what you mean is you're out of excuses.
Krystal: Tad, look, it does sound amazing, and I'm sure you think I must be crazy for not going, but --
Tad: But you're not because deep down in that gorgeous head of yours, you're not comfortable with the idea that this is a real marriage.
Colby: Don't try to play me, Dad. I know you can't stand Tad and Krystal being together. You know what? You've done so many awful things to them that I've lost count.
Adam: Most of which was very upsetting to you.
Colby: Because I like them.
Adam: Yeah, because you love them. I know that, which is one of the reasons I want to make amends. A public mea culpa to bury the hatchet, indefinitely. For you, for me, for -- for all of us.
Colby: Ok. So if I buy into this, you're thinking something small, like maybe dinner with Tad's family?
Adam: Yeah -- no, I'm thinking of a big, big celebration. I want everybody in town to be invited.
Colby: I knew it. You're planning to ambush them.
Adam: No, no, no, no. What I'm looking for is -- is what your generation calls closure.
Colby: I don't get it.
Adam: I love Krystal. I drove her away. And now, there's no winning her back. But something in me -- some -- something -- a small part of me just can't let go.
Colby: Well, you have to. Tad and Krystal are married now.
Adam: I know, I know, I know that now. I know. And -- but possibly, I could look at them, at the reception together, and really realize that that is the life that Krystal wants now. I mean, what -- what is -- what is love all about if it's not letting somebody live the life they want to live?
Colby: I didn't think you'd ever get that.
Adam: Well, I got it from you, sweetheart. I got it from you. When you moved out of my house, it broke my heart. But you thrived with Krystal. You went from a lonely, self-important debutante to a very mature young woman.
Colby: I didn't think you noticed.
Adam: I did, I noticed. You lived your life on your terms, and it's turned out beautifully. So maybe if I can finally find it in myself to -- to just tell Krystal that she's out of my life for good, then maybe I can celebrate her choices, and not rail against them. Well, maybe I finally can move on, too.
Colby: So maybe your heart has changed, but even if you do plan a party, I doubt Tad and Krystal will come.
Adam: Well, that's where I need your help. I want you to convince them to be at the Valley Inn tomorrow night for a surprise.
Colby: I don't want to lie to Krystal.
Adam: No, no, I'm not talking about lying. You'll just facilitate the surprise. Come on, what do you say, kid? Can you help your old dad move on?
Erica: Oh, Sven, that's just perfect.
[Relaxing music plays as Erica gets a massage]
Erica: I really needed this. I've been neglecting myself. But you know me. Where my children are concerned, I'm -- I'm just selfless.
Erica: Like I said, things have been really difficult, and I truly believe in a woman's right to have it all. I even wrote a book on it. But that doesn't mean it's easy. That's why I'm here. To try to get in touch with myself again. To try to find the real me again. It's time for me to take back my power. I need that. I'm Erica Kane, after all. I survived so much. I mean, my goodness, I stood up to a grizzly bear and -- and fought him off with nothing but pure guts and determination. I survived my father, the death of my mother, prison, shoulder pads, and all my husbands. I really did love them all, at the time. But so many were disappointments.
Erica: But I'm not giving up on love. I still believe in love. I'm passionate, and I'm still me. I'm still me. And yet, Jack's out on a date with a nurse. I mean, not that that isn't a very noble profession, but Julia? Julia can be downright tedious.
Erica: Tedious -- you're right. So what will they talk about? Well, they'll probably wind up talking about me. Because after all, Jack still loves me. And I'm Erica Kane. Hmm. So there's no moving on. Especially not for Jackson.
Jack: I am so, so sorry. I make it a rule to never take a cell phone call during --
Julia: When you're on a date?
Jack: Actually, I was going to say when I'm out with a friend.
Julia: Oh. Another Erica emergency?
Jack: Nope. Just a client, thank God.
Julia: She really gets under your skin, doesn't she, that Erica?
Jack: Yeah, but she doesn't seem to phase you at all. Now, how is that?
Julia: I learned to tune Erica out a long time ago.
Jack: I had no idea that it was actually possible to ignore her.
Julia: Oh, no, I don't think it's possible to ignore Erica Kane, I just -- I just don't take her very seriously. And I certainly don't take anything she says personally. But I guess you don't have that luxury. You were married to her.
Jack: "Were" being the operative word.
Julia: I still can't think of the two of you in past tense yet. So, what exactly happened when you were stuck in that closet?
Jack: Oh -- um -- well, just exactly what usually happens. We fight, we argue, and then somehow, we make a connection of some kind.
Julia: Yeah. Pretty much what I figured.
Jack: It was that obvious?
Julia: Hmm -- Jack, you and Erica in a room together are like fireworks going off in a box.
Jack: Yeah, but not in a good way.
Julia: So? This is it, then? Are you calling it quits?
Jack: Hmm. I want it be over. But if I said I was sure, I'd be lying. Hmm.
Julia: Spoken like a true addict.
Jack: What a great analogy. Because with Erica, the highs are high, and the lows --
Jack: Yeah. Yeah. And right now, all I want is just a little calm in my life, you know?
Julia: You wouldn't last five minutes.
Jack: Oh, don't be so sure.
Julia: Calm is boring.
Jack: Enough about me. I'm tired of talking about me. What's up with you?
Julia: Well, actually, I have some pretty exciting things going on in my life, and I'm hoping that you'll be part of them.
Kendall: It is cold! It is very, very cold outside.
Zach: It's not really that bad. It's not that cold out.
Kendall: No, it's like the arctic tundra. It's freezing. I mean, I'm like -- I'm still shivering, my eyelashes are frozen together. My hair's like icicles.
Zach: Well, well, calm down. Let me warm you up.
Kendall: All right. Yeah. That's better. Mmm. Ok. You know what? I could stay here and never leave this house for the rest of my life.
Zach: Hmm, that's nice. It's a lie, but it's a nice lie.
Kendall: It's not a lie, it's true. Hold me tighter. Good.
Zach: Thank you.
Kendall: For using you as a human furnace?
Zach: For giving me some peace and quiet. Just a couple of moments, we don't have to worry about anything.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I'm still a little worried. I mean, one walk in the Pennsylvania arctic is not going to take away what happened to you.
Zach: Maybe this will. Let me try something. Do you mind?
Kendall: That is a very nice diversion. That's -- that's good, but I don't -- that's -- I need something else. That's -- that didn't do the trick.
Kendall: Yeah. Oh, my favorite little forehead spot.
Kendall: That's very smart, but you know what? No, you -- I mean, kiss me all you want. You can kiss me all over. I'm not going to stop talking. I'm just going to keep talking. Blah, blah, blah.
[Kendall chuckles then she and Zach kiss]
[Krystal laughs as she surprises Tad with a Hawaiian motif]
Tad: Well, "Mele kalikimaka" to you, too.
Krystal: Well, it's not really Christmas anymore, but your face sure says, "Mahalo!"
Tad: That a lei around your neck or are you just happy to see me?
Krystal: Why don't you come over here and find out?
Tad: I believe I shall.
Tad: Did I get lucky or what?
Krystal: I got lucky when we got married. And since we said this was going to be a real marriage, I thought, you know, why wait for the honeymoon?
Tad: When you can bring the honeymoon to us?
Tad: Ooh, all right.
Krystal: We got room service here, I got mai tais.
Tad: Yeah, well, I guess the only thing I got to do is get you out of that outfit, and we could start --
Tad: Down there.
Tad: I'm allergic to grass.
Colby: Whoo-hoo! It is sub-zero out there, man! But -- ahem -- way tropical in here. Am I interrupting something?
Tad: Kind of, sort of.
Colby: Ok, I'll just go check on Jenny.
Krystal: No, no, no, Colby, no.
Tad: Yeah, go ahead, take that walk.
Krystal: No, no. We were just -- just kidding around here, just kind of having a belated honeymoon.
Colby: Seriously? Oh, that's so cute!
Tad: You know, y'all didn't invent sex. I wasn't aiming at "cute."
Colby: but if you guys could just hold off for a few minutes, there's something that I would like to talk to you about.
Krystal: Sure, what is it?
Tad: Sure, go ahead, what is it?
Colby: You guys have been the best pseudo parents ever, and I really want to show my appreciation. I want to give you guys a wedding present.
Tad: Ah. Well, if your dad's springing for it, then a sports car would probably hit the spot.
Colby: I was thinking more like a dinner -- tomorrow night, at the Valley Inn, on me.
Tad: Can I have a steak?
Colby: And potatoes.
Krystal: Huh -- oh.
Tad: It's almost as good as a car.
Krystal: No, Colby --
Tad: Come on.
Krystal: Really -- no! We don't want you spending your money on an expensive dinner.
Colby: But I want to. Come on. What do you say? Will you come celebrate your wedding with me?
Adam: Yeah, just make sure we're ready. All right? Yeah. Tomorrow night.
Greenlee: Huh. To paraphrase my favorite movie -- not that I don't love this seduction scene you have going, but -- "You had me at hello."
Aidan: That's very clever. Tonight is all about relaxing, ok, and being quiet.
Greenlee: Ok, but I thought you liked it when I made sexy sounds.
Aidan: Oh, I do. But like I said, tonight's about being gentle and soft and getting back to who you are.
Aidan: All right? So just lie down on your front and let me do what I do best.
Greenlee: What are you doing?
Aidan: It's called reiki.
Greenlee: Does it come with the sushi?
Aidan: No. It's a Japanese term for "universal energy" that promotes healing on -- on every level.
Singer: But nothing ♪
Greenlee: How about I show you something I know?
Singer: Who cares if I appear ♪
Singer: Well, somewhat naive it's true I really need you and I'll stand accused with my heart on my sleeve hold me want me love me love me ♪
Marshall: Sorry to interrupt. I just wanted to leave a tip.
Erica: Go ahead.
Marshall: Actually, that's a lie. Uh -- the truth is I wanted an excuse to introduce myself, so I tipped Jessica twice.
Erica: Well, that's very generous of you.
Man: Yeah. I'm Marshall Logan, and I have been an admirer of yours for years.
Erica: Well, thank you. I would offer to shake your hand, but --
Marshall: Oh, but far be it for me to interfere with a perfect manicure.
Erica: Smart and generous -- very winning combination.
Marshall: Ah. I just wouldn't be able to live with myself if I didn't ask. Would you allow me to take you out to dinner sometime?
Erica: Well, um, actually your timing couldn't be better. I am newly single, you never know when I'll need a dinner companion.
Marshall: Oh. Then I'll await your call.
Erica: Nice to meet you, Marshall. Thank you. Good night.
Marshall: Yes. Good night, Erica.
Jessica: You sure got it going on, Ms. Kane.
Jack: A free clinic at Wildwind? I -- that's great. I mean, this town hasn't had a thing like that since English House.
Julia: So you think it's a good idea?
Jack: Heck, yes, I do. Of course, it is, and it would make a perfect health-care companion to the Miranda Center.
Julia: Well, I just want to give something back to the community.
Jack: Yeah, I guess you do. You're giving up your home.
[Julia and Jack chuckle]
Julia: So, do you think you could help me arrange all the necessary permits and --
Jack: Absolutely and pro bono, of course.
Julia: Oh, no. No, Jack, this is going to take a lot of your time, and I never intended for you to do any of this for free.
Jack: I think what you're doing is fantastic, and I would be honored to be any kind of a part of it, any kind at all.
Julia: Ok. Well, then, to our partnership.
Jack: To partners.
Krystal: No, honey, you -- you work so hard for your money. I don't want you spending it on us.
Colby: But, Krystal, this is really important to me.
Tad: It's a nice thought, hero, and I love you to death for trying, but the fact is your erstwhile mother is not too comfortable with public displays of our marital bliss.
Krystal: Excuse me -- who is in the grass skirt here?
Tad: Excuse me -- who's killing himself trying to get you out of it.
Krystal: No, Tad -- Colby? Honey -- ok. If you want to take us to the fanciest restaurant in town, then I will be there with bells on.
Tad: Oh, you had me at "steak."
Colby: Oh, awesome! I'm going to go make the reservations. Aloha!
Krystal: Aloha. Ah.
Tad: Now, that is cute.
Tad: In the meantime, where were we?
Krystal: Where were we? Let's see -- I think you were about to show me the top of Diamond Head.
Tad: You are evil!
Krystal: Oh, you love it.
Colby: Tad and Krystal are in.
Adam: I knew you could convince them.
Colby: I'm really proud of you for doing this, Dad. Don't make me regret it.
Adam: Yeah. Colby came through. Yeah, that's right. You have the invite list? Good -- make sure Zach Slater is coming, too. This is a party he won't want to miss.
Singer: You think about all that ♪
Zach: Where you going?
Kendall: I'm going to check on the boys.
Zach: Boys are fine -- there's a monitor right here. You stay with me.
Kendall: Hmm. Are you sure you're ok?
Zach: Never been better.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I am completely starving, so I'm going to go and get that leftover pasta in the fridge. Do you want any?
Zach: I'll have a slice of scotch, please, thank you.
Kendall: A slice of scotch?
Kendall: Ok. Coming up.
Kendall: Ugh. Hello? Hi. Uh -- tomorrow night? Yeah -- uh, of course. Just e-mail me the information, and we'll be there. Bye. That's really weird.
Zach: What? What's up?
Kendall: Well, that was Colby. She is inviting us to a wedding party for Krystal and Tad at the Valley Inn tomorrow.
Zach: We're on the guest list? Nice.
Kendall: Yeah. I wonder what that's about.
Zach: Don't worry so much. Come on, tell me a story.
Erica: Oh -- Jessica? Here you go. Thank you very much -- you did a beautiful job. Thank you.
Erica: Hello? Oh, Colby, hi. A surprise wedding reception for Tad? Yes, of course I'll be there. Uh -- Colby? Is -- is Jackson invited by any chance? He is? I see. No -- oh, no, no. No problem at all. I assume it's all right if I decide to bring a guest? Great. Ok, bye.
Aidan: So, that felt -- felt good? You feel good?
Greenlee: Yeah. I feel wonderful -- a total gentle --
Greenlee: Sexual convert.
Greenlee: And what I said before about another woman, I --
Aidan: Hey, I'm sorry.
Aidan: I overreacted.
Greenlee: Aidan? I know you've been through a lot, too.
Greenlee: And telling me that I come first, I -- I've never heard that from a man before and actually believed it.
Aidan: Well, believe it because it's true.
Greenlee: I do. And I trust you, Aidan -- more than anyone.
Kendall: Maybe he's right. Some things are better left unsaid.
[Kendall recalls her night with Aidan. Zach dreams that Kendall is in Hannah's place on the rocks]
Zach: No, Hannah, I've got you! I'll protect you!
Kendall: No. I'm slipping! You're losing me!
Zach: No, no, you hold on! Hold on!
Kendall: Oh, oh -- no! No!
Adam: And, of course, we'll have our finest champagne.
Woman: Of course, Mr. Chandler.
Adam: Well, now, wait -- on second thought, I'll bring some over from my private cellar. Mm-hmm. Well, other than that, that's -- everything is in order. This is going to be a night that Pine Valley will never forget.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Everyone at Fusion: Surprise!
Greenlee (to Greenlee): I can't believe it. This is like we're really back.
Richie: How can you sit there so calm with that silly little grin on your face while you sentence me to death?
Ryan: If we do it my way, Richie, you just might live.
