Annie: I -- I'm sorry.
Ryan: No, it's -- um -- it's ok. I guess I just -- I guess I just need a little bit of time to get used to all this, that's all.
Annie: So do you believe me now?
Ryan: I have lost four years of my life. I have a wife and a daughter that I don't know.
Annie: You'll get it all back, Ryan.
Ryan: Yeah. That's what Joe said, and I -- I'm really hoping to believe him, but you know what? I just -- um -- I'm going to go for a walk and clear my mind a little bit, get some fresh air.
Annie: Ok, we can do that.
Ryan: Alone, if it's -- if it's ok.
Annie: Yeah, of course. Of course, whatever you need. I'll -- I'll be right here.
[When he spots Jesse in the hospital hall, Tad runs after him]
Nurse: I'm sorry, sir, we really need you to wait outside.
Angie: She's stable, but let's keep a cart nearby.
Kendall: What are they doing now?
Angie: We had to reinforce the coma to protect her, and we have to stabilize her system before it shuts down completely -- now, this is what I warned you about. I'm so sorry.
Aidan: I thought the antidote was supposed to help her, not put her back into shock.
Kendall: Why isn't it working?
Angie: It is working, but the levels aren't. We haven't found the right amount to give her yet.
Kendall: I don't get it -- she seemed to be improving.
Angie: Well, unfortunately, that's what we're seeing with both patients. Their initial reaction to the antitoxin is positive, it looks like they're rallying, and then something -- we -- we don't know what -- reverses it.
Jack: You know what, Angie? I must be honest with you, I don't get it, either. You've got all these experts -- experts from the CDC, Poison Control, the Department of Agriculture -- all these people, and you still can't figure this out.
Angie: We're all stumped right now. But Greenlee and Frankie are still with us, which means there's hope. Don't lose that.
Kendall: How long, doctor?
Aidan: Yeah, weeks? What are we looking at -- days? What?
Angie: We are just trying to keep them through the night. Now, it's best that you guys take turns in there. Ok?
Nurse: Mrs. Slater, there's a call for you on line 3.
Kendall: Hello? Amanda, what is it? A book party? Yeah, yeah, yeah, they -- they told me about it. Listen, I'm not going to be able to make it, ok? Be -- because my best friend is dying, that's why! Ok, just tell the publishing people to -- to launch it without me. I don't care about the stupid book. I'm sorry. I know it's not your fault. Can you just tell them? Ok.
[Kendall hangs up the phone and looks in on Greenlee]
Kendall: "My best friend is dying." Ryan? Oh, I am so glad to see you.
Ryan: Kendall? You have no idea how happy I am to see you. God, I've missed you.
Kendall: Ryan, what do you mean, "you -- you've missed me"? You've missed me how? I haven't gone anywhere. I mean, we've been here for days.
Ryan: I -- I know. I just -- I -- um -- I just woke up. You know, I looked up at, um -- at Annie, and I just felt like I've been asleep forever.
Kendall: Yeah, yeah, I know how awful that can be -- to -- to be in such a sound sleep, and then -- and then get hit with such bad news right away.
Ryan: God, you look beautiful.
Kendall: What? What, are you crazy? No, I don't -- I look horrible, I look disgusting. I -- honestly, I don't care. I don't care how I look right now. I just -- I thought that everything was getting better.
Kendall: Yeah, but it's not. Ryan, Dr. Hubbard -- she's -- she's worried about Greenlee even making it through the night.
Ryan: Wait a minute. Yore telling me Greenlee's sick, and she might die?
Kendall: Yeah. Ryan, what is wrong with you?
Ryan: Nothing, nothing is wrong, just -- where is she right now?
Kendall: Uh -- she's -- she's this way. Come on. Ok -- no, you know what? Wait a second. Let's take a walk, all right, and you can tell me what's going on with you. Come on.
Jack: So you're saying my daughter could die right now?
Angie: Jack, I just --
Jack: Just answer me, please, Angie?
Jack: Well, you're going to have to give us a little more. That's what you doctors do, right -- when you hit a wall, you keep trying till you figure something out, right? That's what you do.
Aidan: Give me the poison.
Zach: What the hell are you talking about?
Aidan: She says they can't get a level on how much antidote to give Greenlee. You can give me the toxin, you can experiment on me.
Angie: That's very heroic of you, Aidan. But all it would do is put you in the same condition as Greenlee and Frankie, and I don't think either one of them would want that. Hey, look, I know you want to help -- all of you -- and I wish that I could offer you more than just "hang in there" or "say your prayers." Look, my son's life hangs in the balance, too. So you must know that whatever it takes -- whatever means it takes for me to fight this, I will.
Tad: Well. Huh. I guess you're not the only one that's hallucinating. I could've swore I just saw your dad. I guess it's catching, huh? It's impossible. No, it's impossible. Jesse Hubbard is dead. He's dead, he died in this hospital. Then again, what the hell do I know? Oh, Jesse -- I'm going out on a limb here -- if you're out there somewhere, you got to help us -- all of us. Jesse, please.
Ryan: Look, Kendall, if I'm acting a little bit strange right now, I can explain all of that later, ok? Just please -- right now, just please take me to see Greenlee.
Kendall: Ok, all right, Ryan, but you have to know it's -- it's bad. I mean, she -- she's in a coma.
Ryan: But she's still alive, right?
Kendall: Yeah, of course.
Ryan: Well, that's good, because you know Greenlee -- she's a fighter, right? I mean, if nothing else, she probably has a bone to pick with you, you know?
Ryan: Hey -- she's not leaving us, ok? I guarantee that, I guarantee that we'll get through this. Just -- just take me to see her, please?
Kendall: Ok, all right. Uh -- well, maybe we should get some coffee for everyone first.
Ryan: Who's "everyone"?
Kendall: My mom, Jackson, Aidan --
Kendall: Yeah -- and Zach, of course.
Ryan: Who's -- who's that?
Kendall: Are you serious?
Ryan: Yes, Kendall, I'm serious. Who is that, who is Zach?
Kendall: Zach -- Zach Slater, my husband?
Ryan: Wait a minute, wait a minute. Are you telling me that -- that you married somebody else?
Zach: No, Rachael, I know. Just -- just stay there for a couple of hours. It's -- it's going to be a long night out here. Ok, I'll call you back. Annie, hey.
Annie: Hey, Zach. What happened?
Zach: Uh -- Greenlee's having a rough time, it's not looking great.
Annie: Oh, no. Is Aidan here?
Zach: Aidan's here, yeah, sure, and Erica, Jackson. Where's your old man?
Annie: Uh -- Ryan?
Zach: Yeah, Ryan -- do you have another old man? I'm saying that if it was Greenlee, he'd maybe come here.
Annie: Yeah -- no, he is. He's -- well, I mean, he's not here right now, but --
Zach: What's going on?
Annie: It's kind of a complicated question. So -- um -- what exactly happened to Greenlee? I heard something about, like, an antidote or something and they had to --
Zach: We're friends, right?
Annie: Of course.
Zach: So you can talk to me.
Annie: I can't.
Zach: Of course, you can. What's bugging you?
Tad: So how is he?
Angie: The same -- not better, not worse.
Tad: And you?
Angie: The truth?
Angie: Going crazy -- wracking my brain trying to figure this out.
Tad: Yeah, I -- I'm sorry, honey. I talked to Pop, he said this one's a real nightmare, a bit of a mystery.
Angie: And we're supposed to know how to solve it, right? I mean, we're the experts -- somebody gets sick, dial up a cure. I wish it were that simple. I wish for a lot of things.
Tad: Yeah, I know what you mean, honey --'I've -- I've had a few of those myself.
Angie: So what is it about Jesse?
Angie: You were talking about him to Frankie when I walked in.
Tad: Oh, I -- uh -- nothing. You know, I just -- well, Jesse's been on my mind a lot lately, you know? I come by it honestly -- I've been staring at this picture for hours.
Angie: Were we ever that young?
Tad: Oh, please. You know, the fact is you're just still as beautiful as ever. Listen, Angela -- you remember what Frankie said about seeing him, right?
Tad: Jesse. Frankie swore that he saw him in this room.
Angie: I do think Jesse's spirit is here watching out for us. That's probably what Frankie heard or felt, you know.
Tad: Yeah. Yeah, I'm sure you're right. Which means it's -- it's got to be doubly hard for you, right? I mean, especially with him being here -- all the bad memories of what happened?
Angie: Oh, you know, Jesse is with me all the time. I mean, that -- that man -- he just guides me constantly, telling me when I'm being selfish or when I'm giving up too easily. He would be here right now, telling me, "You keep working, Angie. This is our boy right here, so don't you let down for a minute. Don't you let down for a minute. And you stop feeling sorry for yourself, girl, because do you think that you've covered it all? You haven't. You haven't covered it all. There's got to be something that you've missed, so you need to just find out what it is. You keep fighting, you keep fighting, Angie, and you look for it, because you will find it! You'll find it, because I have faith in you, baby!" God. Oh, God, Jesse, I miss you so much. I miss you so much!
Tad: That makes two of us, hon. Makes two of us. Angie, what is it?
Angie: Tad -- uh -- I got to go.
Erica: Jack? You've really been glued to her side. Maybe -- maybe it's time for you to take a little break?
Jack: No, I told you before I'm not going anywhere.
Erica: No, I understand. When she hears your voice, she knows you're here, she knows she's loved. That's -- that's beautiful. But there is another man here who also loves your daughter. Loves her so much that he broke her out of prison, and then went to stay in a leaky cabin in the middle of nowhere so he could search for her.
Aidan: Erica, don't, it's fine.
Erica: And he never gave up -- he never gave up until he found her.
Jack: You're right. You're right -- I couldn't have asked for a better man to love my daughter.
Aidan: Thanks, man.
Jack: Just stay here, and I want you to keep her safe for me, though, all right?
Aidan: You know I will.
Aidan: Just me and you now, Greens.
Aidan: Oh -- I'm not crying, I just got a cold. You look so beautiful, you know that? I'm going to tell you a story. Don't worry, it's not one of my funny jokes. You know, when I was a kid, I did many stupid things, as you do. One day, I kind of outdid myself. There were these -- um -- these boys I grew up with in England, living on the same street. And this guy dared me to eat a pile of worms out of his garden. And everybody looked at me and said that I was too afraid -- and I was. I mean, who wants to eat a pile of worms, right -- slimly little buggers -- but I did. I scooped them up, and I ate every single last one of them. I pretended that I wasn't afraid -- like it would make me any less of a man. I got to admit to you, Greenlee, I'm a little afraid. I love you. I need you to be strong and come back -- for both of us.
Annie: Ryan's fine. He was with Joe earlier, but -- um -- you know, I've just been trying to come up with a list of what to ask, because I know they say that you should always write down your questions, so you remember what to ask the doctors. But -- um -- you know, I'm really ok.
Zach: Then why are your hands shaking?
Annie: I don't know. I'm -- I'm cold, maybe there's a draft in here.
Zach: Yeah, there probably is. Let me buy you a cup of coffee, ok? Hey -- I don't know if you've met Dr. Hubbard. Hi, doc.
Annie: No, I haven't. I'm Annie Lavery.
Annie: Hi. How's Greenlee?
Angie: Same, I'm afraid. Listen, Aidan's offer to take the poison got me thinking about something.
Zach: About what?
Angie: Using the poison to fight the poison.
Zach: Not sure what that means.
Angie: All right, look, we created the antitoxin from the poison root -- standard medicine. Greenlee rallies, and then her system shuts down. I give Frankie too much of the antitoxin, his heart stops. It's a long shot -- hell, it's probably malpractice if it doesn't work -- but if I can find something to balance the amount of poison in their systems with the amount of antidote we use to treat it --
Zach: I have no idea what you're saying, but if -- if it's worth a shot, then go ahead, you should try it.
Angie: Wish me luck.
Zach: Come on. What's going on?
Annie: Um -- Ryan's been forgetting things.
Zach: Things like what?
Annie: I don't know if it's the gunshot or -- we don't really know what it is yet.
Zach: He's forgetting things -- what things?
Annie: You know --
Zach: I don't know.
Annie: Me, Zach. He's forgotten me.
Kendall: What is going on with you?
Ryan: Just -- um -- just take me to see Greenlee, ok?
Kendall: Ryan -- Ryan -- Ryan --
Ryan: Please -- no, I'll explain everything -- I'll explain it all later. Please, just --
Kendall: No -- Ryan, explain it to me now. Come here.
[Ryan recalls making love to Kendall]
Kendall: Ryan? Ryan?
Ryan: Kendall -- I love you. I love you.
Zach: So he doesn't know that you're his wife? And -- and what about Emma?
Annie: No connection at all. What am I supposed to tell Emma, Zach? "Daddy's sick"? "Daddy doesn't remember you"? I mean, she's his daughter, for God sakes. I'm sorry. You know what? I have to -- I have to stay strong. I can't panic, because it's not going to do any good. You know, and Ryan has always been so good to me. Since day one, he stood by me, he hid me from Terry, he's protected me, everything with Richie, so now is the time I need to take care of him, too.
Zach: Yeah, you will, but you don't have to do this alone. We're -- we're here. You don't have to -- we're here.
Annie: I mean, he's a lost soul right now, Zach. I mean, imagine if the last four years of your life were just gone -- that's where he is right now. He knows that the time has passed, but for him, four years ago was yesterday.
Zach: What does Joe say?
Annie: He doesn't know. I mean, it could be -- it could be an hour, it could a -- a day, a week -- forever.
Zach: Well, worst-case scenario, he's going to have to fall in love with you all over again -- that's not going to be hard.
Annie: You -- you should go be with Greenlee. You don't have to listen to all this.
Zach: No, you know, this may surprise you, but I don't have any -- um -- medical expertise or anything, but --
Zach: I think Greenlee's going to be ok.
Annie: I hope you're right.
Zach: And I think Ryan's going to be ok. No problem, piece of cake.
Annie: Yeah. Yeah, I hope so. But, you know, I was thinking, Ryan believes his world stopped four years ago.
Zach: Yeah. So?
Annie: Wasn't that when he was engaged to Kendall?
Kendall: Can I ask you something?
Kendall: Are you drinking, or have you been doing drugs or anything like that?
Ryan: No, no -- I mean, I -- no, I have not.
Kendall: Ok. It's just this whole thing --
Ryan: I know, I -- I totally and completely understand, but like I said --
Kendall: Yes, yes -- you will fill me in later. Ok, well, I'm counting on that.
Ryan: Let's go see Greenlee.
Joe: See if Ryan Lavery has checked in yet, would you? We have more tests to run. Thank you.
Angie: What was the password that we used to log into the CDC site?
Joe: It's right there.
Angie: All right. I have a feeling that I won't have enough backup on this, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Joe: Hmm. What do you got?
Angie: Just what I thought. Joe, we've been worried about the concentration of antitoxin we should use, right?
Angie: How much pure antidote we should use, right?
Angie: But what if we were to mix it with something?
Joe: Well, there'd be a risk there -- adding another foreign substance could make the body reject the serum outright.
Angie: Unless we mix it with blood.
Joe: Huh. Well, making sure that we prescreen for ABO incompatibility -- what did the CDC say about this?
Angie: Well, it's been done in a handful of cases -- I mean, it's certainly not the usual protocol.
Joe: You want to phone them?
Angie: We don't have time. Look, if it worked once --
Joe: Yes, it might work again.
Angie: If you're onboard, I say we go for it.
Jack: It feels like we were just here asking God for the very same thing.
Erica: Last time we were here, our prayers were answered, Jack, and they will be again. We have always seen the glass as half full.
Jack: Well, actually, you were the one that always saw the glass half full, not me.
Erica: Well, let's not fight about it right now, ok?
Jack: No fighting.
Erica: You wouldn't let me be here with you if you didn't see the glass was half full. All the things we've been through together? The thousands of times we forgave each other when we promised ourselves that we wouldn't? We've had some problems, and we will again. But when crunch time comes for anyone in our family, we are and we always have been a team. This glass is half full, and I know it will be for Greenlee, too. I know it, I -- I know it.
Jack: When you say it like that, I believe it. Thank you. Thank you very much. How's she doing, Aidan?
Aidan: She's fine. I've been talking her ear off. Normally, I can't get a word in edgewise.
Angie: Let's go, let's go. Excuse me -- Aidan, up, up. All right, get this --
Jack: Angie, what's going on?
Angie: Excuse my bedside manner, but we may have figured something out.
Erica: Did you get new info from the CDC?
Angie: No -- they might have me arrested. This is something that I came up with on my own, just going with my gut. Let's get a rapid infuser with the drip.
Jack: Ok, so -- so you're giving her more of this antidote, is that it?
Angie: Yes, but not just that.
Aidan: What, something else?
Angie: Um -- I hope that this will make sense, but we can up her antidote level if we mix it with blood. Now, the antitoxin will keep its strength, but it'll be diluted enough that it will prevent cardiac arrest.
Jack: Are you sure about this, Angie?
Angie: Oh, Jack, I -- I have my doubts, too, but God willing, I think this could save them. All right, come on, let's get more fluid for both patients, stat.
Angie: Just pray that I'm right, Aidan.
Kendall: Is she ok?
Erica: She's fine. Angie has discovered something new, and Greenlee is going to be fine -- I know she is.
Ryan: Do you mind if I get in there?
Kendall: No, get in there.
Ryan: Hey. Hey you. How you doing? You got a whole posse of people here -- you know that? Well, I'm not going to -- I'm not going to take too much of your time. I just -- I guess I'm here just to ask a favor of you. I need you to fight. Fight for Leo, or -- or just fight like you're really pissed at me, because we both know you can be. Come on, Greenlee. Come on, come back. Come back.
Jesse: You look tired, kiddo. I know you're fighting this thing. I wish I could fight it for you. Listen -- I am so sorry I had to leave you and your mother when you were so young. But I love you, Frankie, and I know you know that. I never stopped.
Angie: All right, Debbie, let's get the macrodrip system set up, and we're going to piggyback the formula we prepped. And I want you to keep pressure on that line -- I don't want any clot formation. Hey, baby. I know you're scared. I was scared, too, but you know what -- I'm not scared anymore, because you're going to make it, I'm sure of it, with flying colors. Your daddy didn't -- he tried -- but you will. You're going to make it, baby. You've got to.
Zach: So he thinks he's back in time to when he was with Kendall?
Annie: Well, that was four years ago, right? Then --
Zach: "Then" what? Where is he?
Annie: He said he needed to go on a walk. I don't know where he is.
Zach: Maybe he went to see Greenlee.
Annie: Or maybe he went to see Kendall.
Ryan: You know, Greenlee, you've taken me on a lot of really kind of crazy adventures, a lot of -- a lot of wild, wild places. Well, this place, this -- this really is, it's just another adventure -- you know? And -- and not a very fun one, by the way, so you -- you got to get out of here, ok? You got to go home. And you will -- you'll go home and -- and you'll laugh again. And I will, too, because you always find a way to make me laugh. Do you know that? I love you, kiddo. So does everybody else here -- we all love you. And we're all here, waiting.
Jack: Thanks, man.
Kendall: That was nice, Ryan. Zach.
Kendall: Hmm, I'm so glad to see you.
Zach: You all right?
Kendall: Yeah, I'm better.
Annie: How is she doing?
Aidan: They came up with a new way of giving them the antidote. They're mixing it with blood.
Angie: Oh, that's it. That's it, baby -- that's what I'm looking for. That's what I'm looking for. Oh, yes, Frankie. Yes.
Joe: How's he doing?
Angie: Can you monitor him for a minute?
Angie: I want to check Greenlee. Between you and I, we might have found something that works.
Aidan: Hey, guys, I -- I think she's moving her eyes.
Kendall: Wh-- what? What?
Aidan: Hey, Greenlee? Hey. How you doing?
Angie: Hey, you.
Joe: Come on, Frankie. Keep on going.
Tad: Pop, what is it? What's happening?
Joe: Hmm. A miracle -- that's what.
Tad: Hey. Hey, kiddo. It's good to see you.
Greenlee: Hey, what's going on? Who died?
Zach: Nobody died, nobody.
Aidan: You're back, Greenlee. I love you.
Jack: Hey, sweetheart. Welcome back.
Greenlee: Hi, Daddy. I was dreaming about you --
Greenlee: And you. I love you both -- huh.
Jack: Love you.
Kendall: Hey, can I get in on this?
Zach: Nice job.
Kendall: I am so happy that you're back. Now, can you please, please just stick around for a while?
Zach: You did it -- you just kept fighting.
Aidan: You're my girl.
Kendall: You are amazing.
Tad: Look who's here.
Frankie: Hey, Mom.
Angie: Oh, God. Thank you, God! Thank you, God! I knew it. I knew you would come back -- I just knew it. Do you know how strong you are, huh? And do you know how very proud I am of you?
Tad: Be proud of yourself, Angela. You did it.
Annie: What did you say to Greenlee? It sounded beautiful.
Ryan: Oh, it was -- it was nothing, really. I was just kind of rambling on at the mouth, just pretty much anything to get a reaction out of her.
Annie: Thank God she's ok.
[Ryan stands stiffly as Annie hugs him, then he keeps looking toward Kendall]
Zach: Ryan's lost in time, and totally in love with you.
Kendall: What? How could that be possible?
Aidan: I don't know about you, but I'm going to sit here, and I'm never going to leave -- if that's all right with you.
Jack: I tell you what we're going to do -- we're going to come back, ok? Aidan?
Aidan: Yeah? Ok?
Jack: Thank you. Thanks for having faith.
Aidan: I missed you.
Angie: We have so much catching up to do -- you know that?
Frankie: Hmm. I've got time.
Angie: Yes, you do.
Tad: Well, I was right -- you heard it here first. Angie pulled out a miracle -- looks like both Frankie and Greenlee are going to be fine. I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of all these close calls, so I think I'm just going to come home and give our daughter a great big hug and kiss. Tell her I love her.
Tad: You're the worst. I love you, too. Give me a break! I'll see you when I get home.
Jesse: Yeah. It's been a long time, Thaddeus.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Ryan (to Zach): Whenever I look at Kendall, all I see is the woman that I love.
Greenlee (to Angie): Where is Frankie's dad, if you don't mind my asking?
Tad: Now, we're going to walk into the hospital and tell Angela you are very much alive.
