Erica: Yes, this is Erica Kane. Warren Davis, please. Yes, it's Erica Kane, and -- well, it's considering the money that I employ him to take care of. All right. Just ask him to call again. I've been calling him. Thank you. What happened? Where's Pam?

Val: She's in the control room. She lost today's guest.

Erica: Well, someone needs to go find him.

Val: Well, you're going to have 20 minutes of dead airspace unless she can fill that space fast.

Erica: Well, I hope you're not including me in that description.

Val: Well, why don't you just talk to the camera for 20 minutes -- nobody does it better.

Erica: As a matter of fact, you can tell Pam that I've got a better idea.

Val: All right, Ms. Kane.

Jack: How are you? Excuse me. I need to talk to you, it's important.

Erica: Yes, of course, absolutely. But first, Jack, I have a tiny little favor to ask you.

Kendall: Ok, we need to have those rates by the end of this week. Yeah, just tell him that Campbell's is sponsoring. It's going to be a charity fashion show, tons of publicity, and celebrities eating his food. ok, bye.

Babe: Hey, I have more designer submissions -- is this a bad time?

Kendall: I'm going to be swamped anyway, so let me see them.

Babe: Ok.

Kendall: Actually, that's -- that's really good.

Babe: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Uh -- no. No! That's too 1980s -- and not in a good way. No, no, no. Yes, actually, I like that.

Babe: Great. I'll set up some meetings.

Kendall: Good job, Babe, good going.

Babe: Well, it's nice to have you back, boss.

Kendall: Thank you.

Amanda: Kendall?

Kendall: Yes?

Amanda: I have those DJ mixes you asked for.

Kendall: Ok, you can just add them to the pile. And you know what? Tell Tommy that if he tries to sell us that stupid sound system one more time, I will have Zach break his knees. They're poker buddies -- relax.

Amanda: I don't know how you do it.

Kendall: Do what?

Amanda: You just go right back to running a company after everything that's happened?

Kendall: Oh, well, compared to what my family has been through, this is like a day off. Wait a minute, where is it?

Babe: What?

Amanda: What, did you lose something?

Kendall: Yeah -- um -- it's -- it's this thing that I -- that I wrote when Zach was gone. It doesn't really mean anything to anyone but me, but where could it be?

Greenlee: They liked the book? They "loved" the book? Oh, my God, that's great. I told you, Kendall's story -- it's the stuff. Oh, can you tell your rep to wait for me? I want to be there when she hears she's getting published. Ok, see ya. Ooh. I wish I didn't have to leave.

Aidan: And where do you think you're going?

Greenlee: Got to get to Fusion -- big news.

Aidan: Oh. Big news, huh? Great. Well, you can tell me on the way to the hospital.

Greenlee: Oh, that again? Can't we do it later?

Aidan: No. Greenlee: But I feel fine today.

Aidan: Greenlee, I'm not going to argue with you about this, all right?

Greenlee: I know, I know -- I promised you.

Aidan: No, you promised Zach. He's the one you promised.

Zach: Hit me. Nice. Thank you. Hey.

Ryan: Hey.

Zach: You here to play?

Ryan: Sure.

Zach: No, it's on me.

Ryan: Oh, great, thank you.

Zach: All right, blackjack. What's going on here? Perfect.

Ryan: How do you do it, Zach? I mean, come on, some things never change. What did you do, stack the deck?

Zach: Nah, I'm just lucky -- I could say the same for you.

Ryan: Ah.

Zach: Josh said you wanted to talk to me.

Ryan: Yes. Did he tell you why?

Zach: Well, he said you liquidated all your assets, and you want to start a charity. How can I help?

Ryan: You could match me dollar for dollar, and we could change the world together.

Angie: Your brother's ok for now. Um -- I had to trach him earlier, but he's stable. How am I doing? Um -- that's a complicated question right now, honey. No, no, Cassandra, I don't need you to come here. Let's just see how your brother does in the next few days. Yeah, I'll tell him. I love you, too. Bye-bye. Hi, baby.

Frankie: Cassie --

Angie: Your sister sends her love -- and she also wanted me to tell you that she is "wickedly pissed" at you for not telling anyone where you were.

Frankie: Yeah, I can hear her saying that.

Angie: Your white count is still very low. How's your throat?

Frankie: Sore.

Angie: You stopped breathing, Frankie.

Frankie: I know -- emergency trach. I had to do one myself on a guy in Basra. There weren't any medics around so I just did it. The guy died anyway.

Angie: Well, my son's not going to die. You hear that, Frankie? Are you listening to me?

Richie: Hey, sis. I got here early -- I guess I'm just a little anxious. It's --

Annie: Oh -- this doesn't make us friends, Richie. I agreed to get tested to see if my bone marrow can be a match for yours, and that's as far as it goes for me.

Richie: So why are you doing it?

Annie: Does it really matter to you?

Richie: Let's say it does.

Annie: I'm doing it for Ryan.

Richie: Well, that just came from way out in left field.

Annie: Not that he really cares about you one way or the other, but Ryan cares about life, Richie, and making a positive contribution to it. Ryan feels like he got a second chance, and other people deserve one, too.

Richie: So in this new spirit of giving, you're going to let me have my second chance? That's sweet.

Annie: Mock me all you want -- I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

Richie: Look, sis, whatever -- whatever the reason, I am grateful. You're going to safe my life -- thank you. I -- it doesn't matter why.

Annie: Ok, well, don't get ahead of yourself. I agreed to take the test, but if you actually want me to save your life, there are a few conditions we need to clear off the table first.

Zach: That's a lot of dollars.

Ryan: Oh, you've never had any trouble making money.

Zach: I've had trouble holding on to it lately.

Ryan: I heard about that. What happened last night with Adam?

Zach: Not my finest moment.

Ryan: Does that really bust you up -- losing Chandler Enterprises back to --

Zach: Nothing to do with that. But there was some damage, and Josh is putting out fires. Cambias to a hit, so it's --

Ryan: You will bounce back, you always bounce back. You're Zach Slater, for God sakes, you got to bounce back.

Zach: Double down.

Ryan: Oh.

Dealer: Sorry, boss.

Ryan: Ouch. Hit me.

Zach: Thanks again for everything you did for Kendall.

Ryan: Oh, well, listen it's -- anybody would've done what I did, Zach.

Zach: Well, anybody might say that they would, but you did. So anything I have is yours.

Ryan: I was really hoping you would say that. Thank you very much, my friend.

Zach: You get your charity set up, and we'll let the accountants out of the cage and let them earn their money.

Ryan: Great, perfect. That is very good news, but this -- this is going to take more than just money. I mean, I want you. I want your time and your commitment in this, as well.

Zach: Sure, you got it.

Ryan: Really?

Zach: Uh-huh.

Ryan: Great. So, how do you feel about spending the next three months in Africa?

Greenlee: Where did that come from?

Aidan: Where did what come from?

Greenlee: "I promised Zach, not you, I'd go to the hospital today."

Aidan: Well, yeah. I mean, I'm just stating the facts.

Greenlee: No, you're not. You're mad because you've been telling me to do this for days, and I'm only doing it now.

Aidan: Right, because Zach told you.

Greenlee: You see, I knew it -- you are mad.

Aidan: I'm not mad, Greenlee, I'm just -- I'm just curious as to what magical powers of persuasion the man has that makes you finally want to take care of yourself.

Greenlee: He doesn't, Aidan. It was just time, that's all. I couldn't keep lying to myself anymore about something being wrong -- or lie to you.

Aidan: I just -- I want you to go to the hospital, all right? It doesn't matter to me who gets you there.

Greenlee: Yeah, it does. I'm sorry. I am.

Aidan: Listen, I know you and Zach got close in that bomb shelter, but you're not down there by yourselves anymore, all right? You're up here with me, and I care about you very much.

Greenlee: I know. Will you take me to the hospital?

Jack: Erica, I am not going to do your show, end of story, but I do need to talk to you.

Erica: And you will, just on national television.

Jack: Oh, my God, this is so familiar.

Erica: It is, isn't it? Just like old times. Oh, your fans are going to be so happy.

Jack: "My fans"?

Erica: Your fans. They have never forgiven us for ending "He Said, She Said" so abruptly.

Jack: Yeah, listen to me, I don't like being ambushed like this, you know that.

Erica: Great, and we can talk about that, too.

Jack: I don't want to be on television! Listen to me. I don't know what part of that is so unclear to you. I don't want to do this.

Erica: Look, Jack, I really need you to do this for me -- and you know you're going to do it anyway. So why don't we save all this fabulous energy for on camera, ok?

[Theme plays]

[Cheers and applause]

Amanda: I found some old layouts from Enchantment.

Kendall: You guys, don't worry about it, I'm sure it'll turn up.

Babe: Oh -- oh, is this it?

Kendall: Let me see.

Amanda: What is it?

Kendall: Oh. Um -- Simone hated meetings, so she would sort of draw whatever popped into her head. I think this is supposed to be me.

Amanda: Oh, wow.

Kendall: Isn't that flattering?

Babe: Oh, yeah, sexy.

Kendall: Ah -- I miss her. Ok, you know what? Forget the papers. We have to focus now on the fashion show.

Amanda: Yes, we need to talk about models.

Babe and Kendall: Yes.

Ava: "Models"? Excuse me, am I no longer the Fusion model?

Kendall: "Models" -- plural. This is not a solo act.

Ava: Well, I don't want to share the runway with anyone else.

Amanda: Ah, Ava, sometimes sharing is a good thing.

Ava: Yeah, you would know.

Kendall: Ok, guys, make sure the designers know they have to do this in red.

Ava: Red?

Babe: You know what? I already told them, but they can be a little flaky, so I'll shoot them an email.

Ava: Wait, wait, why red?

Kendall: Uh, Ava -- Campbell's, heart -- red.

Amanda: It's a great color.

Ava: Well, Lily won't be able to come. Plus, green looks so much better with my eyes and my hair and --

Babe: What hair? You've been wearing wigs since you gave yourself a Mohawk.

Ava: Yeah, and it's growing in, like, so much wavier. I want to get new pictures taken.

Kendall: Oh, that's great, that's a great story. Ok, the Ava hour is over. Can we please get back to work, please?

Amanda: Hey, wait, wait, wait. Look at this.

[Amanda turns on the TV]

[Cheers and applause]

Erica: Thank you, thank you, and welcome to "New Beginnings." For those of you who may not recognize this very handsome man sitting next to me --

Jack: Oh --

Erica: This is my old friend, my ex-husband and former costar, Mr. Jackson Montgomery.

[Applause]

Ava: Wow, he doesn't look happy to be there at all.

Kendall: Well, she does. Way to go, Mom.

Erica: So, how are you?

Jack: Good, good, fine, thanks. Yeah, thank you.

Erica: Well, you out there, you should know that Jack is really doing us an enormous favor by being here today, because our regularly scheduled guest had to cancel.

Jack: So you're saying I'm your second choice?

Erica: No, Jack, you are never my second choice.

[Cheers and applause]

Erica: So many out there in our audience, they haven't seen us together since the last time they saw us together on "He Said, She Said," so why don't we just catch everybody up?

Jack: Ok.

Erica: Any time, Jack.

Jack: You --

Erica: People out there -- yeah, they're used to tuning in seeing people talking.

Jack: Ok, well, I'm -- I'm sure, as many of you know, the past several months have been very difficult for our families, Erica's and mine. Um -- I'm sure if you watch the news, you know the details. It was a time that was filled for us with a -- a lot of pain, a lot of tears, a lot of anger.

Erica: And a lot of love.

Jack: Yes, and a lot of that, too.

Erica: And I have to say for me, the best news is -- is having come through this, we are good friends. I like to call it my "miracle of forgiveness."

Jack: Yeah, it's --

[Applause]

Jack: It's a miracle, all right.

Erica: Isn't it right, yes? Well, you mean that things are back to normal?

Jack: Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say that.

Erica: Why not?

Jack: Well, Erica, with you and me, things are never really normal. I mean, we have big ups and big downs and lots of drama -- lots and lots of drama.

[Laughter]

Erica: Sounds very sexy to me.

[Jack chuckles]

Jack: You know what I mean.

[Cheers and applause]

Erica: Yeah, I think they all know what you mean. And we will talk more about that when we come back.

[Theme plays]

[Cheers and applause]

Erica: Oh, it's going so well. Oh, they love -- where are you going?

Jack: I'm leaving, I'm leaving. I gave you one segment, that's all -- no, thanks -- I'm done -- I'm done here, I'm done.

Erica: Please, Jack, come on. They love you.

Jack: No, what -- what they love is you using me as straight man -- I make a statement, you come back with a snappy rejoinder, and you bring down the house.

Erica: Oh, you're just a little rusty, that's all, but really, you're going to get back to it.

Jack: I don't want to get back to it, Erica.

Erica: Well, we'll talk about that later, ok, because right now we are back.

[Theme plays]

[Cheers and applause]

Erica: Things have never been normal between us --

Jack: Hmm.

Erica: Because what fun would that be?

[Babe turns the TV off]

Amanda: Wow. They have still got it, don't they?

Babe: Well, I wouldn't want to sit there discussing our life on national TV with my ex.

Ava: Well, it's just business, honey. I mean, if someone paid me, I'd pretty much do anything with an ex.

Amanda: I'm sure you have.

Kendall: Yeah, you know what? My mom and Jack, they just have this connection that will never go away, no matter what or who comes between them -- which is usually me and Greenlee.

Babe: Well, if they can survive you two, they can survive anything.

Amanda: Well, I don't give a crap about strong connections. When I'm done with someone, I'm done -- no phone calls, no --

Ava: No booty calls?

Amanda: No nothing. I actually do this thing on my cell phone where I reprogram his number to another number.

Ava: Like what?

Amanda: Anything -- a pizza shop, a friend, someone who will set me straight.

Babe: Hmm. That'll be the day.

Amanda: Excuse me?

Babe: Oh, did I say something?

Ava: Hey, are you still mad at her for what she did to J.R.?

Kendall: Well, of course, she is. We're all pissed at her. I mean, it was a horrible thing to do.

Amanda: And I apologized, ok?

Babe: Yeah -- after you banked a few million dollars of Adam's money.

Ava: Whoa, whoa, it -- it was that much?

Amanda: What do you want to do? You want to draw blood?

Kendall: You guys, Amanda's right. She did apologize, and there is not one woman in this room -- including me -- who hasn't done something as bad or worse. Now, the subject was exes.

Babe: Well, it's a whole nother story when there's a child involved.

Ava: Yet another reason why I'll never breed.

Babe: I mean, you're always going to have a connection to that person, because you're parents first, so you can't just turn them into a pizzeria.

Amanda: Well, excuse my sorry, childless self.

Ava: I would have beautiful babies, but I just can't imagine throwing my whole career away. Kendall, how do you do it?

Kendall: Coffee and a very amazingly understanding husband.

Ava: No, I mean you're friendly with all your exes.

Kendall: What do you mean?

Amanda: Like Ryan? I mean, here you were engaged to the guy more than once, and now you guys are like best buds -- you even work with his wife.

Kendall: Yeah, but, I mean, Ryan and me? That was a long time ago.

Babe: Yeah, what about Greenlee?

Ava: Whoa, Greenlee was an ex? That's kind of hot, actually.

Kendall: No, false, no, she -- ok, you know what? I am officially sick of this subject.

Babe: Only because it's your turn.

Kendall: I am the boss.

Amanda: Ooh. Well, then we're the boss-ettes.

Babe: Ok, Kendall and Greenlee didn't have a thing, Ava. She was talking about Aidan.

Ava: Aidan?

Amanda: Ah, right, weren't you guys hot and heavy a couple years ago?

Richie: So now there are conditions?

Annie: That's right. I'm giving you something precious, I'm going to need a little something in return.

Richie: I'm dying, sis, ok? It's not a lie, it's not a game, it's a fact -- I might not even make it to the transplant. So if this is just a little tease, let's not waste each other's time.

Annie: You want me to go? I'll go.

Richie: What the hell do you want?

Annie: I want you to disappear, Richie. I want you to get well and move as far away from me and my family as you possibly can, and I never want to see you again.

Richie: Well, what would you like me to do? You want me to write it in blood?

Annie: No, just a pen -- on this. I want what you promised me that day in the Psych ward. I want you to confess all of your sins -- for real this time.

Greenlee: You were helping Adam Chandler?

Angie: Well, I'm the specialist that Joe Martin called in to take a look at your case.

Greenlee: I didn't know I needed a specialist.

Angie: Listen, we have another patient here with some irregularities in his blood that match yours, which is why it's so important you're here now.

Greenlee: What are his symptoms?

Angie: Well, there have been a mixture of things -- fatigue, trouble swallowing, stomach pains. Is this familiar? How are you feeling now?

Greenlee: Better.

Aidan: Uh-uh.

Greenlee: I -- I really am. I really am. It's just last night, not so good.

Angie: All right, listen, we're going to start you off on some new antibiotics, see how you respond.

Greenlee: Could I see this patient -- you know, maybe compare notes?

Angie: Uh -- he had a rough night.

Greenlee: I promise I won't stay long.

Angie: All right, I'll take you in to see Frankie.

Greenlee: "Frankie"?

Angie: The patient -- he's also my son.

Aidan: Quentin?

Angie: Frankie's middle name is Quentin.

Greenlee: You know him?

Aidan: Yeah, so do you. Quentin -- or Frankie -- was the one that helped us pull you and Zach out of the hole. I brought him here when he was sick. Hey. How you doing, man?

Greenlee: I don't remember even seeing you, I was so out of it, Frankie. Thank you. Thank you for saving my life.

Frankie: He saved mine.

Angie: What's that?

Aidan: I brought Quentin here -- I mean Frankie -- when -- when he didn't -- he didn't want to come, so I brought him here against his will. He wasn't very happy about it. I thought it was a stomach problem.

Angie: It is, among other things. But listen, thank you.

Greenlee: I'm sorry you're so sick.

Angie: Listen, come here. There's no need to panic, Greenlee.

Greenlee: What happened  to his throat?

Angie: I had to give Frankie an emergency tracheotomy last night.

Greenlee: Oh, God -- "don't panic"?

Angie: Which does not mean that you will require the same. Now, having you two in the same place will let us monitor the illness until we can determine the cause of it.

Greenlee: You mean before it kills us?

Greenlee: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm just a little freaked out right now. Specialists, unknown diseases -- all makes me a little nervous.

Aidan: Is everything all right?

Greenlee: You tell me, Dr. Hubbard -- is it?

Angie: I was trying to explain to your --

Greenlee: Oh, he -- he's not my husband -- I mean, you know, I love him --

Angie: Listen, we want to check Greenlee into the hospital and run a battery of tests to see if we can pinpoint the origin of this problem. Now, you say Frankie helped you out of what?

Greenlee: My friend and I fell into an old, abandoned bomb shelter, and we were trapped for weeks.

Aidan: When I found Quentin camping out in the woods, he helped us find them.

Angie: Wait -- wait a minute. Frankie was living in the -- I -- I want to go out there.

Aidan: Sure, whatever you want.

Angie: All right, listen, in the meantime, we should get you started -- and I'll also need blood samples of anyone else who spent time in this area.

Aidan: Well, there is -- there's Zach, right?

Angie: Slater?

Aidan: Yeah, do you know him?

Angie: Not really, but I -- I have seen him in action.

Greenlee: Well, Kendall was with you for a long time, right?

Angie: So we'll -- we'll test her and get the samples to the CDC, as well. Listen, we really should get you going.

Greenlee: The CDC? Oh, my God.

Aidan: Hey --

Greenlee: Oh, my God.

Aidan: Listen, one soldier to another, how bad is it?

Frankie: It's bad. Real bad.

Ava: You and Aidan were a couple? Oh, my God, I so did not know that.

Kendall: No, no, no, we were not a couple, ok? I mean, he was a blip -- I barely remember it.

Amanda: Aidan? Ok, I'm sorry, those eyes and that sexy accent -- it's not something you forget.

Kendall: Ok, all right, you know what, guys? Um -- as your boss, I'm officially ordering all of you little boss-ettes to get back to work.

Amanda: Come on.

Kendall: Please.

Babe: Boo.

Kendall: Now, uh, Annie thinks that we should have a silent auction, and I think it's a great idea.

Babe: Ooh -- I can get ZoŽ to send us some signed CDs.

Kendall: Good, good.

Amanda: Maybe Campbell's has some "Go Red" merchandise we can use?

Kendall: Ok.

Ava: And I think we should auction off some Ava underwear.

Amanda: What? That's disgusting.

Babe: No.

Kendall: No.

Ava: New, new -- signed, even.

Kendall: Oh, signed? That's fancy.

Amanda: My God. So gross.

Woman: Hello?

Kendall: Uh -- can we help you? If -- if you're a vendor, this isn't really a good time.

Woman: I'm here to see the author.

Babe: "Author"?

Woman: Of our new romance novel -- "Charm," by Kendall Hart?

Zach: Africa, huh?

Ryan: I've already talked to Jamie Martin, and, you know, he's down there working with Doctors Without Borders and he says that they need every single able body that -- that they can get right now.

Zach: Yeah, well, I'm -- I'm not a doctor, and I hate to break it to you, but you're not, either, so I --

Ryan: Well, luckily, we still have a lot of skills that they can utilize down there, like fundraising skills and organization skills.

Zach: Mm-hmm, have you talked to Annie about this?

Ryan: Not specifically about this, but she is behind me 100%.

Zach: Living in Africa -- she's ok with that?

Ryan: This is going to be an adventure for all of us. We're going to be down there doing something positive. It's going to be fantastic. I have a very good feeling about this, Zach.

Zach: What about Emma? Is she part of this adventure?

Ryan: Absolutely. Why not?

Zach: Ok, well, I'm not. I'm not going to do it, I've had enough adventure for a while.

Ryan: Really? You won't even consider it?

Zach: Sure. I have -- I'm not doing it. It's not going to happen. You should consider what you're doing to other people's lives -- I mean, you're really creating a problem.

Ryan: I don't see it like that at all, Zach.

Zach: So what do you see? What about Spike and Kendall? Are they going, as well? I mean, have you talked to Kendall about that -- probably not, right? Come on, man, I understand it, you're -- you're grateful, you want to show gratitude, I get it.

Ryan: I am grateful, I'm grateful for everything.

Zach: Fine. But slow down a little bit. You know, you're making all these plans -- wait a couple of weeks. Can't change the world overnight.

Richie: All my sins in black and white, huh? That is clever. Is this Ryan's concoction or did you come up with it on your own?

Annie: Ryan doesn't know anything about this.

Richie: Hmm. Well, see, the problem is if I did confess, then you'd have more than enough ammo to send me back to jail -- that is the idea, isn't it, Annie? It's a good show. You're more like me than you know.

Annie: The one thing I will never be is someone like you, Richie.

Richie: Don't be so sure of that, sweetheart. The gene pool on the Novak side's a little sketchy.

Annie: I don't want you to go back to jail, Richie, and I don't really care where you choose to spend the rest of your miserable life as long as it's nowhere near me. But you're right -- if you do break your promise and bother me again, I might give that little confession to the police. Call it insurance.

Richie: I call it crap.

Annie: Well, those are my terms. Take it or leave it.

Nurse: Mrs. Lavery? Are you ready to start your tests?

Ryan: I'm not delusional, Zach, all right? I am just trying to make up for all the time that I've wasted stuffing money into a bank and just watching it grow.

Zach: All right, I'm just -- I would like for you to consider other people's feelings and their lives. I mean, look at your wife, for instance. Annie's a smart woman. She's not --

Ryan: I know how smart my wife is, Zach. I don't need you to tell me that, all right?

Zach: Don't get pissed at me, because I don't agree with your travel plans.

Ryan: I'm not pissed about that. I'm pissed because you're being condescending right now. You know what I think right now? I think by believing that I'm nuts, it keeps you nice and comfortable and detached, and you can just sit back and write a check and think that everything is fine -- that's what I think.

Zach: Maybe we should stop now. Let's stop right now before it gets personal -- can we do that?

Ryan: It already is.

Aidan: How'd you do?

Greenlee: I did very well.

Angie: Other than a slightly elevated heart rate, she's right -- she did surprisingly well. I mean, there is still some weakness, because of past respiratory difficulties and organ strain, but otherwise she's in surprisingly good shape.

Greenlee: That's good, right? It means I can go home.

Angie: Nice try.

Greenlee: Fine, I'll stay.

Aidan: Oh, well, that's -- that's awfully nice of you.

Greenlee: But I need to get to Fusion first.

Angie: Fusion Cosmetics?

Aidan: She owns the company.

Greenlee: With Kendall, and someone's coming -- a meeting I set up that no one really knows about.

Angie: Greenlee, I'm sorry to be the bad guy, but no. You need to check in and stay.

Aidan: She's right, honey.

Greenlee: Fine.

Angie: All right, I'll have one of the nurses do your paperwork.

Greenlee: Ok.

Angie: Oh, I want to get your blood draw now, too.

Aidan: Sure. See you, Frankie. Listen, what's so important about this meeting at Fusion, huh?

Kendall: The "author" Kendall Hart? Well, I'm Kendall, but I'm -- I'm no author.

Woman: Trust me, you are.

Kendall: Uh -- no, no. I've never written anything.

Woman: Well, I need to find the Kendall who did, because everyone at Hyperion is dying to meet her.

Babe: Oh, Kendall, this is so exciting.

Kendall: No, it's not because it's not happening, ok? I never wrote anything, and I sure as hell never turned anything in.

Amanda: Now I'm confused.

Kendall: Yeah, join the club.

Woman: Does this ring a bell? "He moved closer to her. His lips were on hers, rough and strong."

Ava: Ooh, that's hot.

Amanda: Nice -- keep reading.

Kendall: Oh, no, ok? That -- this is a really big, huge mistake. There -- there's been a mistake, ok? That right there, what you just read -- um -- that's a journal entry I did when my husband was missing.

Woman: Oh, so that's the back story. I had a bet with another editor -- she was convinced you were having an affair.

Kendall: No, no. Ok? You have to give that back.

Woman: Ooh, I'm sorry -- it's too late. I would think you'd be thanking your friend Greenlee for sending this to us.

Kendall: Greenlee.

Nurse: You can put your clothes right over there.

Greenlee: Do you have this in any other color? Someone should've abolished teal years ago.

Nurse: I'll be right back to take your vitals.

Greenlee: Whoo-hoo! I'm so out of here.

Kendall: I'm going to kill her.

Amanda: Huh -- didn't you already try that?

Kendall: Shut up, Amanda. This is serious. This is -- this is an invasion of privacy. It's --

Woman: A gold mine, if you ask me. I mean, we're already talking sequels, movie rights.

Ava: Movies?

Woman: We've had inquiries from abroad.

Babe: Kendall, this could be huge for Fusion.

Amanda: No kidding. I mean, the founder of Fusion writes a steamy romance novel?

Kendall: No, no -- I never meant for any of these scribbles to go public. Can we just -- can we just stop the presses now or -- or whatever it is that they do?

Woman: If you really mean that, tell me right now. We are going to print immediately.

Kendall: What?

Woman: The book is basically ready to go, and we have fast-tracked it for a February launch.

Kendall: Oh, my God.

Erica: So, Jack, I can still call you a friend?

Jack: Yes, Erica. Of course, you can.

[Applause]

Erica: Well, that means more to me than you'll ever know. Aren't you glad he decided to stay today?

Jack: Oh, well, come on, folks. You know Erica -- do you think I was given much in the way of a choice?

Erica: Well, I hope you choose to join us again tomorrow for yet another "New Beginning."

[Theme plays]

[Cheers]

Val: Wow, guys, the phones were going insane. They loved it.

Jack: Good, good. Good, I'm happy for that. It was -- actually, it was --

Erica: Fun?

Jack: Yeah, it was fun.

Erica: It was fun. So, what was this -- this big, important thing you needed to see me about?

Jack: Yeah, well, the big, important thing I needed to see you about I don't have time to talk you about now, because I'm late for a meeting, so --

Erica: Ok, well, then -- dinner?

Zach: So what do we do now? Meet at the bike rack after school or --

Ryan: I didn't come here to fight, Zach. I just thought that -- well, it doesn't really matter what I thought.

Zach: Are you all right? I'm not calling you nuts -- I'm just asking a friend a question. You ok?

Ryan: I'm fine. All right? I'm -- I have been getting that question a lot lately, so I've been thinking of maybe tattooing my CAT scans on my forehead, so people know that I'm fine, and I'm not nuts.

Zach: I admire your zeal, I do.

Ryan: Just not my salesmanship, huh?

Zach: Not so much -- it needs a little work.

Ryan: All right.

Zach: Hey -- slow down. The world and all the problems are going to be here. Come on.

Ryan: All right.

Woman: Oh, hi. The exit -- it's over there.

Ryan: Right, thank you. Thanks.

Nurse: Mrs. Lavery?

Annie: It's your move, Richie. Either sign this paper, or I'm out of here. Good luck.

Richie: No, Annie -- wait.

Jack: Dinner?

Erica: I'd love to.

Jack: Erica, I didn't say anything about dinner.

Erica: You said that we had to talk about something really important, and I like to discuss important things when I can relax, so 8:00?

Val: She's one in a million.

Jack: No, I think you're selling her short.

Woman: We will need to know if we could go ahead with this pretty soon.

Kendall: Ok, I'll let you know. Thanks for stopping by.

Woman: It was great meeting you.

Kendall: You, too.

Greenlee: Well? Did I miss it?

Kendall: No, actually, Greenlee, you're right on time. Hey, guys, can -- do you mind taking lunch?

Babe: Yeah, sure.

Amanda: Yeah.

Kendall: Thanks.

Greenlee: Oh, God -- did something bad happen? They're not publishing the book?

Kendall: No, Greenlee. Actually, they are publishing the book -- and I could just smack you with it.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Aidan. What's going on? How's Greenlee?

Aidan: We just checked Greenlee into the hospital. Zach, you need to come down here and take a blood test with Kendall.

Zach: Why? For what?

Aidan: Remember Quentin, that guy that helped us rescue you and Greenlee from the bomb shelter?

Zach: What about him?

Aidan: He's got something similar to what she does. Zach, there's something in the blood. The doctors are not sure what it is, but they think it's related to -- to the area where we found you.

Zach: That place keeps following us around, doesn't it?

Angie: My baby, baby, baby. What were you doing out there, so far away from the people who love you? Is that what made you sick? Is that what we're looking for, some kind of connection to this place you chose to live? I'll find it, Frankie.

[Angie kisses her son then leaves his room]

Angie: God will give me the wherewithal to find it.

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

Ryan: Zach is concerned that I've lost it.

Josh: Have you?

J.R.: I think it's time I came home.

Adam: I can see that, but the real question is -- why?

Kendall: Greenlee?

Greenlee: Can't breathe.
