Erica: Val, I want you to call the hospital, get an update on Greenlee's condition, and then I want you to call and confirm my meeting with the accountants. Thank you.
Pam: Did you check out the new footage I sent you on Samuel Woods?
Pam: The guy who's running for senate?
Erica: Oh, right. Uh -- well, of course, the 9/11 connection, that is incredibly impressive, and the way he lost his wife -- that's just tragic.
Pam: Huh -- I know.
Erica: But apart from all of that, Pam, it's -- it's nothing more than warmed-over populism. I don't want this show used as some sort of a political soapbox.
Pam: "The View" wants him.
Erica: Oh, huh -- do they now?
Pam: And the late-night talk shows are lining up, too. I'm telling you, Erica -- this guy is smart, he's good-looking, he has a great story, and did I mention he was good-looking?
Erica: We'll erect a statue to Samuel Woods -- very soon. However, we have today's show to worry about?
Pam: Which means I should go worry about it.
Erica: Yeah, that's why I pay you big bucks, Pam -- you anticipate my every request, thank you. Whoopi, hi, it's Erica! Well, how are you, girlfriend?
Annie: Ryan, I am so sorry about this.
Ryan: You don't have to apologize -- there's no way that you would know Richie would ask our daughter to be his bone marrow donor.
Annie: No, but that's the thing -- I should've known. I forgot who he was for five minutes and look what happened.
Ryan: Emma is going to be fine, ok? Trust me -- she's going to be fine.
[Knock on door]
Richie: Ahem -- got your message. You guys wanted to see me about something?
Ryan: Yeah, come on in.
Annie: How could you?
Richie: What -- what?
Ryan: Emma told us the story that you shared with her, the one about the flower garden and the sick tree. In fact, it made such an impression on her that she cried herself asleep tonight thinking that we wouldn't let her help you.
Richie: Look, man, I didn't mean to --
Ryan: Yeah, sure you did, Richie. You did mean to, and now, you're going to make things right.
Adam: You going somewhere, son?
J.R.: Business meeting. Potential investors.
Adam: Oh, do you want me to go along?
J.R.: No, no, that's all right. I can take care of it.
Adam: I see you're wearing the ring.
J.R.: Yes, I am.
Adam: Your grandfather would be proud.
J.R.: Thanks, Dad. I'll talk to you later.
Adam: Yeah. Ah, no, son. Thank you.
J.R.: Krystal, it's me. I'm on my way.
[Adam listens to J.R.'s call]
Julia: Ok, now, you're going to be a good girl for Tad and Krystal, right?
Tad: Oh, who are you kidding? She's always good, aren't you?
Tad: You know, there's cookies in the kitchen. Last one there's a rotten egg!
Krystal: Go get them!
Julia: Oh, thank you for watching her, you guys.
Tad: No, that's fine.
Krystal: Oh, we're happy to help.
Julia: With the Frankie and Greenlee situation, everybody at the hospital has been working double and triple shifts.
Krystal: Yeah. Is there anything new?
Julia: Well, they're going to try the new antitoxin on Greenlee today.
Tad: And what about Frankie?
Julia: We almost lost him last night.
Tad: Oh. This has got to be killing Angie.
Angie: Oh --
Joe: Thought you could use this.
Angie: Thanks, Joe.
Joe: Yeah. When was the last time you had something to eat?
Angie: On the plane to Pine Valley.
Joe: On the plane -- well, we can't have our doctor getting sick.
Angie: This isn't too bad. Have you heard from Greenlee yet?
Joe: Yes, I spoke to her. She -- she's agreed to the procedure.
Angie: Ah, good.
Joe: Wants to talk to you first.
Angie: Ah. Well, you know, sometimes I wish I were two people.
Joe: Hmm, yeah, so do I. We'd have a hell of a staff.
Joe: Something to consider, though, you know?
Joe: Sticking around, you know, coming to work with us? Well, it is -- it is your home, you know? And we certainly could use you.
Angie: That's so sweet, Joe, thank you. But right now, all I want to think about is saving these lives -- if I can.
Aidan: So Joe tells us you're going to go ahead with the treatment.
Greenlee: Yeah -- guinea pig.
Zach: Lab rat, just because of everything.
Greenlee: Well, I've got my whole crew here with me. I love you. I'm sorry I've been such a pain.
Aidan: You haven't.
Greenlee: Yeah, well, ask him. Thanks for helping me through this, Zach.
Zach: Any time.
Greenlee: And you -- the author.
Kendall: Yeah, right.
Greenlee: I'm so proud of you. I'm so happy we're friends again. I'm so lucky to have all of you in my corner.
Zach: Hey, doc.
Greenlee: Hey, Dr. Hubbard. How's Frankie?
Angie: He's resting -- so far, so good. No more complications.
Angie: You wanted to talk to me before the procedure.
Greenlee: Yeah. Um -- I -- I know this thing that you're going to do to me, this drug, whatever it is -- I know that it's either going to kill me or save me. I get it. I guess what I really need to know is what are the odds of me making it out of this bed? I'd like an honest answer.
Angie: Greenlee, as you know, the procedure is experimental.
Greenlee: I know, I know, I know, I know that. You don't have to qualify it for me anymore. If this were a horserace --
Angie: You'd be the long shot.
Greenlee: Thanks for your honesty.
Angie: It's the same thing that I would say to my son. These are uncharted waters and there have been no clinical studies. The amount of the antitoxin is pure guesswork. But I would also tell Frankie -- and I'm going to tell you now -- that with all our medical advances, scientific wonders, a fighting spirit is still the best thing you have going for you -- that and all the people who love you fighting alongside.
Greenlee: Well, I have all that.
Angie: I can see you do.
Greenlee: Tell Frankie hi from me. And if I pull through this, he damn well better, too.
Angie: I will, sweet girl.
Zach: Thank you.
Greenlee: So this horse walks into a bar --
Zach: And the bartender says --
Aidan and Kendall: Why the long face?
Greenlee: No long faces. I'm going to beat this thing. This long shot's going to win.
[Jesse sits by Frankie's bedside stroking his unconscious son's forehead]
Ryan: Look, do you want to --
Richie: Oh, what -- you don't want Annie watching you kicking my ass, man? Is that it?
Ryan: I'm not going to hit you, Richie. I'm not. I mean, what you did was a pretty awful thing, and I'm trying really hard to give you the benefit the doubt -- you know, that you were just acting as a desperate man. But that would assume that you're a normal human being, so no. No, what I have for you is going to be a little bit more painful. I'm going to make you tell the truth.
Emma: Hi, Uncle Richie.
Richie: Hey, Emma. How you doing, sweetheart? Ahem.
Ryan: Uncle Richie has something he needs to say to you. Don't you?
Tad: Ok, wait, wait, wait, wait. No, you can't move it again!
J.R.: Watch out for him -- he cheats!
Tad: She's already -- that was 12. She's already winning, so she doesn't need you giving away my secrets.
Tad: What brings you here?
J.R.: I was just in the neighborhood.
Krystal: Yeah, and I -- actually, I'm going to put you to work if you don't mind. Would you come in here for a minute?
Krystal: Excuse us.
J.R.: So what's going on?
Krystal: I am starting to get cold feet, J.R.
Krystal: Because I'm starting to think that this game that you're playing with Adam is dangerous.
J.R.: You're the one who suggested it.
Krystal: I know, I know, but now I think I was wrong.
J.R.: Have you been talking to Babe?
Krystal: Yes. Yes, I told her.
J.R.: Damn it, Krystal -- why would you go do something like that?
Krystal: Because I didn't want her to think that you moved in with Adam because you're weak. I thought she should know the real reason.
J.R.: Yeah. So, what did she say -- oh, no, let me guess. That J.R. can't handle it, that he'll be back on the bottle in no time -- am I getting warm here?
Krystal: She's not wrong, J.R. And I was selfish to push you. I know, I know you think you can handle Adam -- we all think we can handle Adam, until one day we wake up, and we're up to our necks in quicksand. Adam has already taken so much of your life, J.R. Don't let him take the rest of it.
[Adam takes a swig of his drink as he eavesdrops on J.R. and Krystal]
Kathy: That's mine!
Tad: You sure your name isn't Trump?
J.R.: You don't give me a lot of credit, do you, Krystal -- you or your daughter?
Krystal: No, you're wrong about that. Babe cares about you and so do I. That's why I should've thought this through before I asked you to do it. I was just so angry at Adam for playing with our lives.
Adam: What games, Krystal? What games -- what games are you playing? Aside from your sex romps with Tad Martin? I have a lead on where Tad can find Kate. I will tell him where to find her -- if you'll come back to me. Yeah.
Krystal: I was not going to let him get away with that.
J.R.: Neither am I. Kate is my sister and if that son of a bitch knows where she is, I'm going to find out. I don't need any babysitters checking on me to see if I've disappeared back into the bottle. I'm back at the house because I want to be -- and I'm doing it for Tad.
Erica: Ok, done. Here you go. Pam, any word on -- an update on Greenlee's condition?
Pam: Val said that all the hospital will tell him is that her condition is unchanged.
Erica: That's it? Are you kidding? Ok -- I'll just go call Jack myself. Hmm. What are these?
Man: I just need your signature.
Erica: Well, my goodness, I really would like to read through them first. Can't this wait?
Man: We're on a very tight deadline.
Second Man: It's not a big deal, Erica. I'll -- we'll come back in a little bit, pick them up from you.
Erica: Ok, thank you.
Erica: Oh, Jack, why aren't you picking up?
Nick: We'll be back in a little bit to check on you.
Kendall: You need anything?
Greenlee: Nah, I'm good. But they say nothing important's going to happen for the next few hours, so why don't you guys take a break? Go, please -- not too far.
Kendall: Remember -- I'm not doing this book thing without you.
Greenlee: First-class air, penthouse suite, George Clooney -- I'm right there.
Zach: Come on. I'll call George, ok?
Zach: See ya.
Greenlee: You, too.
Aidan: Don't even suggest it, all right?
Aidan: No, I'm not going anywhere -- end of discussion. What is this about George Clooney anyway?
Jack: Knock, knock.
Greenlee: Hi, Dad.
Jack: Hi, honey. Hey, I have somebody here who would like to see you.
Lily: The most common gift for someone in the hospital is flowers, but I know that you were having trouble breathing. Then I was going to bring you candy but I know you had a tube down your throat -- so I brought you this.
[Lily hands Greenlee a framed photo of themselves at Erica and Jack's wedding]
Lily: I know we're not technically sisters, because we're not biologically related, and I'm adopted. But we are in another way, because we both call Jack our dad. Well, I thought the frame was pretty -- you can put a picture in it if you want to.
Greenlee: No, Lily. This is perfect. Thank you.
Jesse: You got to hang in there, Frankie. Be strong. What am I saying, huh? You've been the man of the house since I left. God. I wish I could explain what happened -- I wish I could tell you and your mother. Oh -- so many things. You've got her strength, and I want you to use it and fight. Frankie, I love you, boy.
[When Jesse hears a noise, he hides behind a door]
Angie: Hey. Mama's here, baby. Mama's here.
Greenlee: This was very brave of you to come here, Lily. I know how much you hate hospitals.
Lily: Well, they're not my favorite place but I seem to be here a lot now, because of all the medical emergencies of the people I know.
Greenlee: Hmm. Tell me about it.
Lily: I believe I just did.
Jack: Lily, Greenlee and I have a few things we need to discuss. Aidan, would you mind?
Aidan: Yeah, sure. Shall we? Would you like hot chocolate, Lily?
Lily: Yes, but not from the machine, because they don't use real milk.
Aidan: Ok, well, we'll find you some -- some decent milk.
Greenlee: That was sweet -- bringing Lily. I wish I'd taken the time to get to know her better.
Jack: You're going to have plenty of time to do that -- all the time in the world.
Greenlee: You promise?
Zach: Are you ok? Stupid question, huh?
Kendall: I was just thinking.
Kendall: I was thinking about something that we could do for Greenlee.
Kendall: Let's go. I'll tell you in the car.
Ryan: All right, Uncle Richie -- why don't you tell Emma what you told me?
Richie: Ahem. Hey. Ok -- Emma? You remember in the park when I told you that you could help me get well?
Richie: Yeah? But I was afraid that your parents wouldn't let you do it? Well, they were right for telling you that you were too young, ok? You see, Uncle Richie didn't know that they only let grown-ups do that sort of thing, so I'm sorry. However, do you know what else? Uncle Richie found an adult who is going to help him get well.
Emma: You did?
Richie: I did. So, I don't want you worrying that you couldn't help me. In fact, all I want you to worry about is being cute. Ok? Is that a deal?
Richie: Hee-hee-hee-hee -- give me five.
Ryan: All right, ok.
Richie: All right.
Ryan: Well, hey, now that you're wide awake, what do you say you and me -- we head to the kitchen, we get ourselves some snacks, and we watch a little bit of TV? What do you think?
Ryan: Come on.
Annie: Thank you for that. Little girls shouldn't have nightmares about things they don't know anything about.
Richie: Yeah -- big girls, either, so I'm told. Ahem.
Tad: Why am I the last person in town to find out that you've moved back in with Adam, and that you're doing it for me?
Krystal: Tad? I -- I can explain.
J.R.: No, no. He needs to hear it from me. Remember when I was in jail, and you came to visit me?
J.R.: My father offered to bail me out, move me back into the house, but you thought it was a bad idea?
Tad: For obvious reasons. Or weren't you there the other night for his latest escapade?
J.R.: I was there.
Tad: Well, then, answer the question. Why are you back there?
J.R.: You're my real father in every sense of the word. And I needed to prove to myself and to you that I was strong enough to go in there and deal with Adam Chandler once and for all and then be done with him. I just want to be the son that you could be proud of. I want to be the man that you said that I could be, and I have to do this in order to get there.
[Tad hugs J.R. while Adam angrily clears his desk, then he holds up Kathy's New Mexico adoption certificate]
Adam: So this is what you're really after, isn't it, son? You want to give your "real father" a gift. Proof that Tad and Dixie's little offspring is alive and well. If you only knew how close she really is --
Kathy: You want to play another game?
Tad: Well, what happened to "Hannah Montana"?
Kathy: I put her on pause.
Tad: Ah, I see. You'll have to excuse me -- humiliation beckons.
Krystal: That was really nice, what you said to Tad.
J.R.: I meant every word.
Krystal: I can see that. And so could he. I am not going to question you anymore, J.R. I can see that you're your own man. I can see that.
Pam: Line 1 for you.
Erica: Oh, Pam, who is it? This is Erica Kane.
Samuel: Samuel Woods.
Erica: Really? Well, what a surprise, Mr. Woods.
Samuel: Really? I -- I was under the impression that your producer was trying to reach me.
Erica: Yes. Sometimes my producer, Pamela, can be a little too spirited in her pursuit of guests. We do have to rein her in from time to time.
Samuel: Well, then that makes this a lot easier.
Erica: Excuse me?
Samuel: I'm afraid as much as I would like the opportunity to meet you, I can't do your show, Ms. Kane.
Erica: May I ask why not?
Samuel: Too many conflicts, dates. It just wouldn't work out.
Erica: Has "The View" been in contact with you?
Samuel: No, no, this is not about doing another talk show, I assure you. I'm flattered just that you asked me. As a matter of fact, my wife was one of your biggest fans. And after watching your show recently, I can see why.
Erica: Flattery and a turn down all in one call? You certainly do know how to operate, Mr. Woods.
Samuel: Please, call me Samuel. And again, I'm sorry I couldn't do your show, Ms. Kane.
Erica: Don't even give it a second thought, really. Well, it has been so nice talking to you, Mr. Woods. Bye.
Pam: Am I fired again?
Erica: Get him for me, Pam. I don't care what you have to do, but I want that man on my show.
Pam: Got it. Can I ask you what changed your mind?
Ryan: The three of us, our little family.
Annie: Plus Spike.
Ryan: Plus Spike.
Annie: Our not-so-little family.
Ryan: Plus Spike and Kendall and Zach -- you're right, it isn't so little. You know, I remember a couple of months ago when we were over there, and Kendall and Zach were out someplace, and I think you were in the bedroom with Emma, and I was just sitting there with Spike and was thinking to myself, "Everybody that I love is -- is right here with me." You know, I could close the door, and I could lock it, and I know everybody would be safe. Nothing -- nothing could hurt any of us, because we were all in the same place.
Aidan: Just look at her. She's a tough girl, Jack.
Jack: Yeah, she is.
Aidan: She's scared. I can't blame her, though.
Jack: And all we can do is just watch and wait. Hey, Julia.
Julia: Hey. We're going to sedate Greenlee before the treatment. If you want to go and say good night --
Kendall: Can you guys wait, just -- just one minute, please?
Joe: Ok. So you know the drill. We're going to start with the IV drip that'll put you to sleep. And then Dr. Hubbard will administer the antitoxin.
Greenlee: And then after that --
Greenlee: I thought I told you to go home.
Kendall: Well, we did. We did, but we thought we'd bring a little friend back for you.
Zach: Hey. Here you go. Kid couldn't sleep. Said he wanted to come talk to you, so here we are.
Kendall: You want to go see Greenlee? You want to hold him?
Kendall: Want to sit with Greenlee? Give her kisses.
Greenlee: Hi, Spike. Oh, it's been so long. Hi!
Greenlee: Yeah, it's been so long since I've seen you. Last time we were in this place, we didn't have much fun, huh? Hey, we got through it, didn't we? Here.
Kendall: Aw. Oh.
Zach: He's sleepy.
Greenlee: I know. I'm going to do it again. Because there's so much I need to tell you about your mom, and me, and your daddy Ryan, your daddy Zach, and all the people who love you. Yeah. We've been through it, but we're all here. And now, so are you. Oh. Thank you. Thank you.
Joe: You ready? Hmm? Ok.
Kendall: George Clooney.
Zach: Enough with the Clooney talk. We'll see you later.
Greenlee: Yeah, you will.
Jack: Here's his jacket.
Greenlee: You know, it wouldn't be so bad, your face being the last thing I saw.
Aidan: It's going to be the first thing you see when you wake up, Babe.
Jack: I love you, baby.
Greenlee: I love you, too.
Jack: See you in a little bit.
Greenlee: Let's do this.
[Greenlee is given an anesthetic to put her to sleep]
Angie: You stay with us, baby. You've got to stay with us.
[Angie picks up the photo of herself and Jesse from the bedside table]
Angie: Jesse, help our son. Please, please.
[Hiding behind the door, Jesse can hardly contain himself but keeps quiet]
Julia: Angie? Sorry to interrupt. Joe is waiting for you to give Greenlee her treatment.
Angie: I'll be right there.
[While Greenlee holds Alfonso the tiger, Jesse administers the antitoxin as Aidan and Joe watch]
Erica: Jack -- how is she?
Jack: Well, they're just starting the new treatment now, and we won't know anything until morning.
Erica: You're not planning to -- to stay here all night, are you?
Jack: Sure I am, pacing and drinking stale coffee and climbing the walls. Unless, of course, you have a better idea -- I'd love to hear it.
Erica: I just might.
Jesse: Easy, son. It's going to be a long night. But I'll be right here with you.
Kathy: Show me the money!
Tad: Don't look now, but I think you've been skunked, kid.
Krystal: Oh, Kathy wins!
Tad: Well done!
J.R.: All right!
Tad: Bring it on.
[Adam listens to the happy conversation from the Martin household then burns the adoption certificate in his fireplace]
J.R.'s voice: Wow, Kathy. I can never win a game because he has tons of money.
Krystal's voice: Let's start again, I think --
Tad's voice: Rematch, rematch!
[Ryan sleeps in his bed next to Annie]
[Jack and Erica wake up huddled together at the boathouse]
Erica: Jack, what a beautiful sunrise. Look at it, Jack. It's a new day.
Jack: My God, when did I fall asleep?
Erica: I guess after we talked all night and solved all the problems of the world.
Jack: Did we get to all of them?
Erica: Hmm, maybe just the ones in our own little corner -- I don't know. Have faith, Jack.
[Adam talks to his sleeping son]
Adam: You know better than to tangle with me, J.R. You'll all find out what a mistake that was.
Julia: I hope she wasn't too much trouble.
Krystal: Oh, not a bit.
Tad: No, except for kicking my butt a few times at a board game.
Krystal: Oh, he's a sore loser.
Julia: Thanks for taking her, you guys.
Tad: We'll take her off your hands anytime. Have a good day.
[Tad chases Krystal around the house]
Krystal: Hmm. Get off me!
Angie: Aidan -- Aidan, come on, we need you to leave.
Aidan: What? What is it?
Angie: Get up, get up.
Aidan: Is she all right?
Angie: Look, I will keep you apprised. I need you to leave.
Angie: Get me an oxygen mask.
Angie: I need you to get Dr. Martin.
Joe: What's the matter?
Angie: She's not responding. I think we're going to have to get her on a vent.
Joe: Page the anesthesiologist.
Kendall: Hello? Aidan, what's the matter? No, but I -- but I thought that they said -- ok, all right, we're on our way.
Zach: Is Greenlee ok?
Angie: Joe, her sat's dropping.
Joe: All right. Ambu bag.
Angie: She's still hypoxic.
Joe: I don't think she's oxygenating.
Angie: She may be obstructed.
Joe: Just an airway, probably.
Aidan: Jack, it's Aidan. You need to get back to the hospital, now.
Annie: Emma, sweetheart, it's time for breakfast. Let's let Daddy sleep in, ok? Come on. Uh-oh. Whoops. Morning, sleepyhead.
Ryan: Um -- who are you?
Annie: Oh. What do you mean, "Who are we"? We're your family. I am Annie, this is Emma.
Ryan: No -- no, you're not.
Annie: Uh -- sweetheart, why don't you go to your bedroom for a second? Mommy needs to talk to Daddy about something. Can you do that for me? Good girl. Good girl. If this is some kind of a joke, it's not funny. I think you scared her.
Ryan: I'm sorry that I scared her. I -- this is -- this is not a joke, ok? I don't know what's going on. I don't know -- I don't know what happened here. Um -- but I do know this. I have never seen you before in my life.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Ryan (to Joe and Annie): I've lost four years of my life.
Angie (to Jack): I'm sorry, but she slipped into a coma.
Kendall (to Greenlee): We're not going anywhere.
Greenlee: Hey, guys, I'm right here.
Tad: Jesse --
[Tad spots Jesse at the hospital and chases after him]
