Greenlee: All right, so you're mad about the book.

Kendall: You sandbagged me, Greenlee. You took something you had no business even looking at.

Greenlee: It fell out of your bag, and I just started reading it.

Kendall: It doesn't matter, ok? You should have never, ever sent it to the publisher.

Greenlee: You're right. I should have checked with you first.

Kendall: Yeah, well, now, they want to start printing the stupid thing, like, today!

Greenlee: They must really like it.

Kendall: That's not the point.

Greenlee: Well, isn't it? I mean, just a little bit?

Kendall: No, no!

Greenlee: Ok.

Kendall: No, you don't understand, Greenlee. It was never meant to be read, let alone published by one of the biggest book companies in the entire universe. You know what? It's going to be in every window across America now. It's going to be Valentine's gifts. Women will devour it on their morning commutes. Hey, at least look at me when I'm yelling at you.

Greenlee: I'm sorry, I can't.

Kendall: Why not?

Greenlee: Because. You're just too funny.

Kendall: That -- that -- I'm -- this is not funny. I'm not funny. This is not funny.

Greenlee: Poor Kendall. Famous author. Boo-freakin'-hoo.

[Greenlee laughs]

Kendall: Oh, my God. You're right.

Greenlee: I know I am.

Kendall: You're right! I'm going to be a freaking author.

Julia: Zach?

Zach: Huh? Hey.

Julia: Did you get the results of your blood work back?

Zach: Yeah, yeah. Clean bill. No sign of whatever Greenlee and Frankie are dealing with now.

Julia: Good. Oh, speaking of Greenlee, I'm on my way to track her down right now.

Zach: What do mean, "track her down"? She's here in the hospital, right?

Julia: Hmm she's supposed to be. Apparently, "doctor's orders" doesn't mean anything to her.

Zach: Well, no orders mean anything to her, so --

Julia: Great. This should be fun.

Zach: So, who's the doctor on this case?

Julia: Dr. Angie Hubbard.

Zach: Because I need to ask her something.

Julia: Oh, well, she's not in the hospital right now. She's out doing some research.

Zach: Where? Where is she?

Julia: Hmm. Probably the last place you'd ever want to go.

Angie: So this is it?

Aidan: Zach and Greenlee were buried. They were trapped right under here, and the cabin that I stayed in was right over there.

Angie: Oh, gosh, it's so cold. Oh, I can't imagine what it must have been like for them.

Aidan: You know, it was a miracle that they survived.

Angie: It must have been hard for you, too. I mean, being so close and not knowing how long they had.

Aidan: Trust me, my mind went to some -- some terrible places.

Angie: Well, I'm glad Frankie was here. It's so like him to want to pitch in and help. He's been like that every since he was a little boy.

Aidan: He's a good kid. You know, I couldn't have done it without Quentin. I mean, I couldn't have done it without Frankie -- I'm sorry. I'll get used to it.

Angie: It doesn't matter to me what you call him. I just want to find the answers to what's making him sick.

Aidan: Well, if it's out here, we'll find it.

Angie: We'd better, Aidan, because we're running out of time.

[J.R. remembers]

Krystal's voice: I know that I'm asking a lot, but -- come on. This -- this is for Tad. We'd be reuniting a family, your family.

Adam: Hello, J.R. Looks like you're planning to stay a while.

J.R.: That's the reason why I wanted to talk to you. I think it's time I came home.

Adam: I can see that. But the real question is, why?

Ryan: Hey. What, did Zach send you over here with a butterfly net?

Josh: No, he just suggested I come over here, and we talk about some of your ideas for the charities.

Ryan: Josh, you're not a very good liar, all right? Zach is concerned that I've lost it.

Josh: Have you?

Ryan: Well, that depends on who you're talking to.

Josh: Hmm. Well, I don't think you have. I just think you're a guy who's wanting to share your good fortune, literally. But you can't blame Zach for wanting to back off three months in Africa.

[Ryan laughs]

Ryan: Yeah, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Josh: And it is, maybe for some other time.

Ryan: I just want everyone to see the possibilities, and when they don't --

Josh: You smite them. You know, playing God's a pretty tough gig, Ryan. Even for you.

Richie: I will sign your damn confession if you agree to get tested as my bone marrow donor.

Annie: That would give me a lot of power. It means I could save your life and maybe put you back in jail.

Richie: Well, I guess that's a risk I'm going to have to take. Huh, huh.

Richie: Are you happy?

Annie: It doesn't make me happy hurting people, Richie. That's your territory.

Richie: Fine, whatever.

Annie: Hey, but there is one more thing.

Richie: Oh, what? Another condition for my reprieve?

Annie: No, it's just a question. If this transplant works out -- if you actually get another chance, what do you plan on doing with your life?

Tad: This here is Memorial Park, and you're going to love it on account of it's beautiful, just like you. Although, it's generally not so frosty. Got to blame winter for that. Although, winter is great, too. Don't get me wrong, now. I don't want to establish some kind of seasonal bias.

[Krystal laughs]

Krystal: Seasonal bias?

Tad: Yep.

Krystal: Hmm.

Tad: What is wrong with you? Far be it from me to impart a little hard-won wisdom to our beloved chichi.

Krystal: Oh, please. So far, that wisdom --

Tad: Oh, stop it.

Krystal: So far, that wisdom includes why snowmen should have carrot noses and swings -- learning to embrace the butterflies that they leave in your stomach.

Tad: That hardly makes me out to be the village idiot. For your information, swinging is a perfectly healthy form of exercise.

Krystal: Oh, yeah? Speaking of exercise, could you please tell me why I have to lug this stroller out if you're going to hold Jenny the entire time that we're here.

Tad: No, no -- mine. Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine. You can't blame me. One look at you, and I want to just eat you up like a snack.

Krystal: You are just crazy enough to make that sound adorable.

Tad: Yeah? Well, I like that. You still haven't answered my question, though is Babe ok?

Krystal: Hmm?

Tad: Is she still mad at J.R. about trying to move in across the way, you know?

Krystal: Uh -- I haven't talked to her about that.

Tad: Yeah, well, I wish you would. I can't figure out what's going on. I stopped by this morning to take a look-see, and his stuff is still in boxes.

Krystal: Well, maybe he just hasn't had time to unpack.

Tad: No, Krystal, I mean, his stuff is still in boxes like -- you know, it looks like he's moving out. She may have scared him half to death. There was a van in front of the apartment and everything. I mean, what is that about?

[Babe is shocked to see J.R.'s belonging in boxes and his condo empty]

J.R.: You want to know the reason why? I just told you the reason why.

Adam: Yes, you said you wanted a truce.

J.R.: That's right.

Adam: Well -- well, until this very moment, you wanted nothing to do with me.

J.R.: What do you want me to say, Dad? I got tired of fighting with you. I wanted to come home. Pick one.

[Adam chuckles]

Adam: Is that why you leased a condominium across from Babe?

J.R.: You heard about that?

Adam: I smell a rat, J.R.

J.R.: Then maybe you should try new after-shave.

[Adam chuckles]

J.R.: This was a mistake. You said you wanted me to come home, so we could get a fresh start. You said you wanted me to be your son. I'm not three feet through the doorway, and you're giving me a hard time! Nothing ever changes! You know what? I'll see you around.

Adam: No, wait, wait. Just wait. Are you really on the level here? Do you really want back in?

J.R.: I want to do what's best for my family. How about that?

Adam: Well, then welcome home, son. Welcome home.

[Adam hugs J.R.]

Aidan: What do you mean, "We're running out of time"?

Angie: Aidan, we're dealing with a toxin that's attacking Frankie and Greenlee's bodies from every direction. Now, we treat one area, it goes into hiding, and then it comes back and it attacks another.

Aidan: Sounds like a guerilla army to me.

Angie: It is, in a way. And my fear is that before too long, those forces will gather together for an all-out assault.

Aidan: Yeah, but what about the CDC?

Angie: They've got the blood samples, but I can't just sit around and wait for their analysis. Look, is there anything -- anything that is unusual that you remember about being here? I -- I mean, anything that seemed out of place?

Aidan: Well, I found -- I found some drug paraphernalia, some chemicals buried on the property, but -- I mean, I dug them up. I stored some at the cabin.

Angie: All right, we'll take them in to be tested. Listen, what about the man who owned the property originally?

Aidan: Sylvester? He's -- he's a paranoid old man. He's probably strung-out somewhere. We haven't been able to locate him.

Angie: Well, keep trying, because he's the one who's going to know this area the best.

Aidan: Look, Frankie lived above ground, but what about below? I mean, that's where Greenlee was. Anything we find up here -- it means nothing unless it connects to that bomb shelter.

Zach: I might be able to help with that. Put me to work.

Kendall: This is becoming a habit.

Greenlee: And a great one. Amanda taught me her famous kick-ass recipe.

Kendall: All right, shouldn't you have a V8 or something? I mean, didn't -- I mean, aren't you -- aren't you still recovering?

Greenlee: This is a celebration. We're drinking margs, baby. It's tradition.

Kendall: All right. Pour my marg away.

[Kendall chuckles]

Greenlee: So when exactly did you realize you weren't mad at me?

Kendall: Um -- right around the time when I realized this could actually be a lot of fun.

Greenlee: Not to mention, making Fusion, like, the hottest, coolest company that ever curled an eyelash. I mean, do you realize the marketing possibilities of this? "Charm" perfume.

Kendall: Bracelets.

Greenlee: Hair products.

Kendall: Lunch boxes. Oh!

Greenlee: We will conquer the world.

Kendall and Greenlee: Yes!

Kendall: Here.

Greenlee: Oh.

Kendall: Mmm, mmm! Yum. Sorry -- that I overreacted.

Greenlee: I'm kind of used to it.

Kendall: It's just I've had one too many surprises lately.

Greenlee: Huh, yeah, I know. Me, too.

Kendall: But I think I'm -- I'm actually enjoying this.

Greenlee: I'm glad.

Kendall: I am, too. You know, that -- that it's us together again, and that you did this thing for me that you knew would probably make me mad.

Greenlee: But not stay mad.

Kendall: Thank you.

Greenlee: That's what friends are for -- even if you didn't write me into your first novel.

Kendall: Well, I kind of --

Greenlee: Parker is a bitch. I know you wouldn't have written me that way. I'm your best friend.

Kendall: You're more than a friend, and you know it.

Greenlee: To "Charm."

Kendall: I will drink to that. Cheers.

Greenlee: Cheers.

Ryan: Wow, so now I'm God? When did I get promoted?

Josh: Well, Superman was already taken, so --

[Ryan chuckles]

Ryan: Yeah. Well, I get your point, all right? Zach made it loud and clear, now you're making it loud and clear. And I appreciate your zeal and everything, but you can just, you know, cool it.

Josh: You know, I do, actually.

Ryan: You do what?

Josh: Admire you. You know, for the charities, the giving. And I bet Annie does, too.

Ryan: She does, actually. She's been amazing. She really has. Whatever I want to do, she's -- she's right there. She's wondering how she can help, what she can do, you know?

Josh: Hmm.

Ryan: I really couldn't have done it without her.

Josh: Well, if you find another one, you know, would you mind sending her my way?

Ryan: Another Annie?

Josh: Yeah.

Ryan: Sorry, man, there is no other Annie. They broke the mold.

Annie: You're smart, Richie. Why don't you do something great with your life?

Richie: I'm going to do what I've always done. I'm going to survive.

Annie: You know what I think?

Richie: No, what do you think? Please tell me.

Annie: I think you are scared to death, because you have spent so much of your life focused on one thing -- punishing me -- that you don't have a clue what to do now. But you better figure it out, Richie, because you are done abusing me.

Richie: People with death sentences don't spend a lot of time thinking about the future. Ok. You say I could change, turn things around. Well, I -- I just don't think so. I -- I don't think I can be anything else than what I am now. And I know exactly where that train leads. It goes straight to hell.

Krystal: Maybe you're right.

Tad: I'm right? Do you hear that? Take a mental snapshot. Oh, yes.

Krystal: No, no, maybe J.R. took Babe's hint and found another place to live.

Tad: Oh, man, who do you think you're talking to? Look, I love my stepson to distraction, but the word "no" is not easy for him to take.

Krystal: Well, he has been trying to do the right thing lately, and so I just think we should give him the benefit of the doubt and call it progress.

Tad: Well, good for you. I think that's an idea. The time has come. Your mama is a genius. Just want to make sure Babe is ok with whatever happens. And you, too. Because if any young smoothie comes by trying to get fresh with you, Daddy's going to be right there to straighten him out.

Krystal: Mm-hmm, with a shotgun.

Tad: Oh. Don't be so provincial. Nope, Daddy's going to invest in a Taser. Speaking of high-tech personal defense -- what were you and Adam talking about last night?

Krystal: Do we have to talk about Adam, Tad?

Tad: It did kind of pop into mind. That's how the devil generally works, isn't it? I mean, not to mention the fact that last night's kind of hard to forget. I mean, renewing our vows under duress, on Adam's dime. Zach trying to wring his neck.

Krystal: Another day in the life of Adam Chandler.

Tad: Yeah, that's one way of looking at it. The other is that -- you two were out there in the lobby for a long time while the rest of us were locked up. What did he want?

[Adam packs away all his liquor bottles]

J.R.: You sure you want to do that?

Adam: Absolutely.

J.R.: My disease is my problem. This is your house. I don't want you changing your lifestyle for me.

Adam: You're -- you're my son. I want to help you in any way I can.

J.R.: Thanks.

Adam: From what I understand, the movers are retrieving all of the things you left in that hovel you leased.

J.R.: My son lives in one of those "hovels."

Adam: Please, don't remind me. Little Adam should be here with us.

J.R.: Little Adam belongs with his mother.

Adam: We could give him a far better life than Babe can.

J.R.: I've only been in the house for an hour, and you want to start with this now?

Adam: No. Of course not. I -- um -- I'm just so happy that I'm getting my family back -- you and Colby. I just -- I just got carried away.

J.R.: Well, let's just go easy with that, ok? Because it's just you and me. We don't need to be making any plans beyond that.

Adam: All right, all right. No, but we -- we do need to be looking into the future. Somehow, when you get settled in, of course. About -- we need to discuss the role you'll have in the company.

J.R.: Ok, Dad.

Adam: What?

J.R.: Nothing. How did you get Chandler back?

Adam: Oh -- I was brilliant. I hid in the weeds for a while till everyone thought that I was down for the count. And -- and Slater stopped paying any attention. And then when the time was exactly right, precisely right, I sprung.

J.R.: Hmm. And it probably didn't hurt that he was trapped in a bomb shelter for a month.

Adam: Yeah, well -- it was just a matter of time before this family got what was taken away from them. Before we got it back. I did that. I would protect it with my life. And when I give you that company, I want Chandler to be its strongest. And I trust you can continue that legacy.

J.R.: "Trust"? That's an interesting word for this family. With trust comes honesty.

Adam: Hmm.

J.R.: And I need you to be straight about something with me.

Adam: Of course.

J.R.: I'm serious. If we're going to be a family, I need you to make a vow. No more secrets.

Adam: Oh, come on. Every family has a few little secrets.

J.R.: Not like ours.

Adam: What exactly are you referring to?

J.R.: I need to talk to you about Tad.

Adam: Tad Martin is the last person I want to discuss with anyone.

J.R.: Well, it's important to me. Just like Colby and Babe are important. And if I'm going to live here, I need to know that you don't have any agendas regarding my family.

Adam: Tad Martin is not your father. I am.

J.R.: Tad has looked after me my entire life, just like you.

Adam: Why are we even talking about him?

J.R.: Because I've been thinking about how much we've lost. You know, after Mom.

Adam: Yeah, what happened to Dixie was a tragedy.

J.R.: Yep. And I think Tad suffered the most.

Adam: Huh. You're too generous.

J.R.: Well, think about it for a second. He lost the love of his life. And he lost any chance of ever finding Kate, their daughter.

Adam: Why bring any of this up to me?

J.R.: Oh, no reason. She's just my sister. I think about her sometimes.

Adam: Well, who knows? Maybe she'll turn up someday. Who knows? And for all we know, maybe she's better off where she is. Wherever that is.

J.R.: Hmm. Well, I guess I just needed to bring it up. I'd better go check with the movers.

Adam: I'll get the housekeeper on it.

[J.R. stares at his father's wall safe]

Man: Who are you?

Babe: Oh, I'm -- I'm the neighbor from across the way. What's -- what's going on here?

Man: What's it look like? The guy's moving out.

Babe: But -- but he just leased this place.

Man: Ugh. What can I tell you? He must have not liked the neighborhood. You shouldn't be in here.

Babe: Well, it's ok. I'm his -- his friend. Do you -- do you happen to know where he's moving to?

Man: They just pay me to put it on the truck. If you're his friend, ask him.

Krystal: Adam -- Adam wanted me to go back with him, and I told him to forget it.

Tad: Good. I mean, I figured that was the way things worked out. I just can't understand why he would stage anything so elaborate. Adam's evil, he's not stupid. You know, he doesn't like looking like a fool in front of anybody. He doesn't do something without leverage. At this point, what on earth would make him think that you would even consider taking him back?

[Krystal remembers]

Adam's voice: I know how much you care about Tad, your friend. And I know how long he's waited to find his daughter Kate.

Adam's voice: So, I will tell him where to find her if you come back to me.

Krystal: Um -- Adam just figured I'd come running to him once he got Chandler Enterprises back. He thought I could, you know, just go back to him. He could buy my love. I -- I told him that my home was here with you and that your happiness is all that I care about.

Tad: Yeah?

Krystal: Yeah.

Tad: Well, I'd kind of like to hear a little more about that.

Krystal: You are the finest man I've ever known, Tad Martin. No, really. And I will never, ever give up trying to give you the family that you deserve.

Tad: Come here.

[Tad and Krystal kiss]

Zach: Now, I'm sure Aidan told you about the snakebite.

Aidan: Yeah, I was thinking that. Could that be the reason why Greenlee got sick?

Angie: No, the venom would have already cleared her system by then.

[Phone beeps]

Angie: Besides, Frankie wasn't bitten. Oh, please let that be good news.

Aidan: It might be. One of my PI buddies might have a lead on Sylvester.

Angie: Well, we want to talk to him as soon as possible.

Aidan: I'll call him right now. I'll be back.

[Zach sighs]

Angie: I guess Adam Chandler must have really said something pretty vicious for you to get so angry.

Zach: Oh, that's right. You were there, huh?

Angie: My welcome back to Pine Valley.

Zach: Hmm.

Angie: And I have quite a few friends who have had some pretty bad experiences with Adam over the years.

Zach: He brings out the best in people. I'm Zach Slater.

Angie: Angela Hubbard. Listen, I want to thank you, Mr. Slater, for coming out here. I know it must be really difficult with everything that you and Greenlee have endured.

Zach: Ah, I just -- I want her to get well, that's all, whatever it takes. You know, it's just -- it's, uh --

Angie: What is it?

Zach: It just looks familiar to me, that's all.

Angie: All right. We'll add it to our collection. Maybe Frankie knows what it is.

Kendall: Ok, you actually ate a snake?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm. Right after he bit me. And, no, it did not taste like chicken. But that wasn't the worst of it. When we ran out of water, Zach cut open this repulsive-looking plant and dripped the moisture into a cup. Oh -- ugh -- it tasted so awful, like the worst thing you could possibly imagine. But it probably saved my life.

Kendall: And Zach didn't have any?

Greenlee: Uh-uh. He's a good guy, your husband. You better hang onto him. You know what? I think this -- yeah, this is my favorite part. "His lips were rough, his body was strong and grew stronger. Avery felt warmth spread through her body. It was a long kiss."

Kendall: Yeah, that was a long and lonely night.

Greenlee: You wrote all this stuff while we were trapped down there?

Kendall: Yeah, it basically was the only thing that kept me from going insane.

Greenlee: Huh, that's still to be determined. "He kicked the door shut behind them. They leaned against the wall, and his hands went down her back, the curve of her hips." Wow, that's pretty hot.

Kendall: Well, you know what? I can't help it if I've had a lot of passion in my life.

Greenlee: Yes, basically, you're a slut.

Kendall: Ok, you know what? You know what? You know what? I can think of a few adjectives for you, too.

Greenlee: Speaking of me -- if I'm not Parker --

Kendall: Mm-hmm?

Greenlee: Which character am I?

[Kendall chuckles]

Greenlee: You're not telling me?

Kendall: Oh, no, not a chance.

[Elevator door opens]

Kendall: Not happening.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Kendall: Sorry

Greenlee: Julia, hey!

Kendall: Hello.

Greenlee: Come, have a margarita.

Julia: Party's over, Greenlee. There's a hospital bed with your name on it.

Greenlee: Come on, Jules, don't be a nurse. Have a drink.

Kendall: Yeah, yeah. You know, back in the day, Julia was all about the partying.

Greenlee: Oh.

Julia: Yeah, don't blow my cover.

Greenlee: Then let's recover your past. We're getting drunk and reading all the dirty parts from Kendall's book.

Julia: You wrote a book?

Kendall: Apparently.

Greenlee: And it will be on all the bestseller lists.

Julia: Look, I'm not kidding, Greenlee. Dr. Hubbard needs you back at the hospital. I will take a rain check on the party.

Kendall: Well, this sounds serious.

Greenlee: It isn't.

Julia: Actually, we are concerned that whatever Greenlee has contracted has compromised her immune system.

Kendall: Ok. Well, now I'm with Julia. Why didn't you tell me you were feeling worse?

Greenlee: Because I'm not. I feel great. I'm having a great time.

Kendall: Ok, well, then we can move the party over to the hospital.

Greenlee: No. Do you have any idea how sick I am of hospitals? Or how many times I've laid around with matted hair in one of those awful gowns? I mean, would it kill you guys to use non-synthetic fabric? And why do they always have to be backless?

Julia: Greenlee --

Greenlee: I'm sorry, Julia, but I can't go with you. I hate hospitals, and I hate holes in the ground. Between the mineshaft and the bomb shelter and all the times my life has basically been hanging by a thread, I'm pretty sure I never want to have a sponge bath again. I'm too young to be this sick. So, what do you say, Julia? Can we have another drink before you drag me back to hell?

Angie: I've never seen this plant before.

Zach: Well, I don't know if I've seen it, either. There's just something -- something odd about it. I don't know. What's the news on Sylvester?

Aidan: They're still trying to track him down. What's that?

Zach: This? I don't know. Just something's been bugging me for the last five minutes. I don't know if it's significant or not. You recognize it?

Aidan: Nothing I've ever seen before, no.

Angie: What is this place?

Aidan: This place is -- is Quentin's -- or Frankie's camp.

Angie: Frankie lived here?

Aidan: I mean, I told him that he could stay at the cabin when it got cold, but --

Angie: Oh, my God, Frankie.

Richie: I'm serious, Annie. I don't think that I can change.

Annie: But you were honest with me. And that gives me some hope that maybe one day, you'll be able to turn off that switch and actually do the right thing. Not just for yourself, but for the rest of us.

Richie: Well, I won't make any promises.

Annie: And I'm not expecting any. And I probably wouldn't believe them, anyway.

[Phone rings]

Richie: Oh. Hey. Hey there, brother Ryan.

Ryan: Richie?

Ryan: Where is Annie and what are you doing with her phone?

Richie: Relax, brother-in-law. We're just here at the hospital.

Annie: So, what can you tell me about the process?

Nurse: Right now, we're going to do a blood test to determine if you're eligible to be a donor.

Annie: And since Richie is my brother, the odds of me being a match are pretty high?

Nurse: About 35%.

Annie: I thought they would be higher than that.

Nurse: That's actually quite high. The doctor will explain everything when the time comes.

Annie: Right -- ahem.

Nurse: You're doing a good thing, Mrs. Lavery. I'm sure your brother is very grateful.

Tad: Hey, the swings are empty. Heh, heh.

Krystal: Of course, they're empty. It's January.

Tad: Oh, what fun it is to laugh.

[Krystal chuckles]

Tad: Come on. Let's go hunt down some butterflies. You know what they say. You're never too old to swing.

Krystal: Yeah, but I like to watch. You go ahead and swing.

Tad: Yeah?

Krystal: You have fun.

Tad: Yeah, well, always. Pervert.

J.R.: What am I doing?

[J.R. puts the picture back on the wall covering the safe and makes a phone call]

J.R.: Well, I'm back in the lion's den.

Krystal: Adam went for it?

J.R.: Yeah. Well, you know, I can be pretty convincing when I want to be.

Krystal: Just be careful, J.R. If Adam realizes that you just moved back there to get information on Kate, he's going to be furious.

J.R.: I'll get the information that Tad needs.

Krystal: Yeah, speaking of Tad, he's been asking a lot of questions, you know? Why you skedaddled out of that condo so fast?

J.R.: Tell him it was typical J.R. I was too weak to take the heat. Tad will believe that.

Krystal: You are anything but weak.

Angie: There's nothing personal here at all. I mean, there are no pictures, nothing to tell anyone who he is.

Aidan: Listen, Dr. Hubbard -- um -- I used to be a soldier, too, so I know a bit about this. When you come back from experiencing something like what Frankie experienced, it's hard to settle back in to what we call normal life.

Angie: But this isolation?

Zach: It's what he needed at the time. It has nothing to do with what's going on now. He knows you're here, and he knows you're here to help him.

[Phone rings]

Aidan: This could be about Sylvester. Hang on. Chase, what's up? You're kidding me. Are you sure?

Zach: What is it?

Julia: You are really persistent, Greenlee.

Kendall: What she means is you're a pain in the ass.

Greenlee: You guys really are no fun, at all.

Julia: Oh, no, it'll be fun. I'll be the designated driver.

Kendall: Yeah, I'll hitch a ride. And I'll tell you which character you are in the car.

Greenlee: Fine. But one more toast. To Kendall Hart, and her second career as a writer.

Kendall: Thanks.

Julia: Yeah, I think you've had your last hurrah for a while. Come on, guys, let's go.

Kendall: Hmm. Greenlee -- Greenlee!

Greenlee: I can't breathe.

J.R.: All right. Bye.

Adam: Was that Babe? Oh, sorry. None of my business. J.R., I know I keep saying this, but I've -- you need to know it's true. I'm very glad you're home, son.

J.R.: It's where I need to be.

Man: Ahem. Ugh. That's the last of it. We need to lock up now.

Babe: Yeah, I'm -- I'm coming.

Richie: Ryan, what the hell are you --

Ryan: Where the hell is Annie? Where -- is she --

Richie: Oh, man.

Ryan: Annie? Excuse me. Whoa.

Nurse: What?

Ryan: What -- what is this?

Nurse: Sir, you're not supposed to be in here.

Ryan: You got to stop whatever it is that you're doing. You have to stop this, ok?

Nurse: I'm calling security!

Annie: He's my husband. It's ok.

Ryan: You don't understand. This man is very dangerous, ok? He's a dangerous man. Whatever he convinced you to do, Annie, it's not ok!

Annie: Ryan, I came here on my own.

Ryan: What? What are you talking about?

Richie: That's right, Boy Scout. Annie's here to save my life.

Angie: I'll let you know if there are any further developments. Bye, Dr. Hahn.

Zach: Here. What happened?

Angie: Sylvester is dead.

Aidan: What is an overdose?

Zach: Aah.

Angie: No, it wasn't drugs. Asphyxiation. His throat closed, and he suffocated.

Aidan: Kind of like what almost happened to Frankie?

Angie: You know, Greenlee told me that she's been having trouble swallowing.

Aidan: Yeah, she has, but she's --

Angie: I need to get back to the hospital.

Kendall: Julia, what's happening?

Greenlee: Heart racing --

Julia: Ok, I need you to stay calm, Greenlee. I'm going to call for help.

Kendall: Ok, ok, please -- please do something, please!

Julia: Just keep talking to her.

Kendall: Ok, ok, Greenlee, look at me, look at me. Ok, you're going to be fine. You'll be just fine, ok?

Greenlee: Throat closing.

Kendall: Ok, we're going to get you help, all right? Just -- just stay with us, ok? Hold on, Greenlee, ok? I'm right here.

Julia: The patient's name is Greenlee Smythe, late 20s. She's had a sudden onset of acute respiratory distress and is cyanotic. And, please, have Dr. Hubbard on call when we arrive.

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

Annie: You're going back to the doctor's, Ryan, because something is clearly wrong.

Greenlee (to Angie): Am I dying?
