Erica: What are you doing?

Pam: Uh -- we thought you weren't going to be here today.

Erica: Why on earth not?

Val: Um -- uh, well, because "New Beginnings" is --

Pam: Erica, the network pulled the plug.

Erica: Well, unpack everything. This is my building, and my show is not going off the air.

Jack: Hey.

Erica: Oh, Jack? Hello.

Jack: Hi.

Pam: Erica, but the head of the network --

Erica: Well, the network is going to have to realize who it's dealing with. I mean, nobody pulls the plug on Erica Kane.

[Greenlee sniffs]

Greenlee: Hibiscus.

[Kendall sniffs]

Kendall: Musk.

Greenlee: Spicy.

Kendall: Exotic.

Babe: Oh. Oh, um, what's all this?

Amanda: It looks like mad scientist work to me.

Greenlee: We're creating an essence that will unlock the heart.

Kendall: And inspire passion.

[Greenlee growls]

[Kendall purrs]

Zach: Annie, I got it.

Annie: Surprise.

Zach: Oh, wait.

Annie: Morning.

Zach: Morning.

Annie: So I was on my way to Fusion, but I took a little detour to stop at my favorite coffee shop which just so happens to be across the street from your office, so I got you some. Here.

Zach: Oh, great -- coffee for a month. Sit down.

Annie: No, no, no, I can't sit. I've had two double espressos already. Anyway, I should be going.

Zach: You just came to bring me coffee?

Annie: Yeah -- no. We told Emma -- Ryan and I. We -- we told Emma that he moved out.

Zach: Sorry about that.

Annie: Yeah. So he's -- he's really free now. Doesn't even have his daughter to hold him back, so I just thought you should know.

Zach: I should know why -- because of Kendall?

Annie: Well, he does seem pretty obsessed with her. I'm sorry if I made this worse for you.

Zach: Nah, things are fine. How are you doing?

Annie: I'll be fine. I am fine -- really.

Zach: You sleeping?

Annie: Uh -- no, I haven't been getting a lot of sleep -- haven't been getting any, actually. It's funny -- I was the one who kicked Ryan out. But after he left, I felt like I was the one without a home.

Joe: Ryan -- sorry to keep you waiting. I was in a meeting when you called.

Ryan: Joe, you got to help me, all right? I -- I have to do something to get my memory back.

Joe: Yeah. Well, you spoke to the neurologist, right? So you know you need to give it time.

Ryan: I -- I don't have time, Joe, all right? I mean, what about drugs? Are there -- are there any kind of experimental drugs out there? I -- I will do anything, anything.

Joe: We've consulted with a number of specialists, Ryan. There is no drug for your condition.

Ryan: Well, then put me on a table and cut me open. What about surgery, ok? Joe, listen to me -- I broke my little girl's heart last night. I -- I need to remember, I need to remember now before I destroy my entire life.

Annie: Ryan was so sweet with her. It was as if the old Ryan was back. I mean, part of him is, I guess, if he loves Emma again.

Zach: That's good, right?

Annie: Yeah. The way he was with Emma last night, the love he had for her? I was almost jealous -- of my own daughter. That's not good. I've -- I've become impatient and then with Kendall, I'm envious.

Zach: With good reason.

Annie: No, but it's not just her -- it's with Greenlee, too. I mean, Ryan hasn't fallen back in love with her -- yet. But they're so close and -- and they laugh together and when I see that, it makes me angry.

Zach: You have every right to be angry.

Annie: I mean, I keep going through it in my head -- how could he forget me, what we felt for one another? Is it because it happened so fast for us, too fast?" Or is it -- is it because he was never really over Kendall to begin with?

Zach: He loved you very much. But those memories -- they're buried right now, but I'm -- I'm sure he'll get them back and --

Annie: No, no, but see, you don't know that, Zach -- that's the thing. Nobody knows if Ryan will ever remember me again.

Joe: The good news is, Ryan, there's no permanent damage. Physiologically, your brain is normal.

Ryan: Well, maybe -- maybe there's something that the -- that the neurosurgeons missed. I mean, can I get a number to another one? Or maybe even a few so I can get some other opinions here? I got to do whatever it takes, Joe.

Joe: Well, I can give you a bunch of names if it'll make you feel better, but surgery's not going to help. Disassociative amnesia is a psychological disorder.

Ryan: Well, I mean, my brother was sick and everybody thought that his issue was psychological, and surgery helped him.

Joe: I know, but remember, your brother had a tumor.

Ryan: I don't remember, Joe. I had to be told about my brother's tumor. I had to be told that my sister was murdered, all right? I got all these blanks in my mind, and I'm trying to fill them -- I got all these blanks about the people that I love or -- or the people that I used to love.

Joe: Mm-hmm. Well, now, have you started therapy yet?

Ryan: Yes, I have. I talked to the therapist, and he said that maybe long-term talk therapy might help, but it's not good enough, Joe, all right? I can't just sit around and wait anymore -- I am hurting my family to the point where Annie threw me out.

Joe: Oh, I'm sorry.

Ryan: No, it's not -- it's not like I blame her. I'm not -- I don't -- I've been horrible to her, all right? And, I mean, the woman loves me, and I -- I can't love her back.

Joe: Yeah. Annie must understand --

Ryan: She does. She understands that I don't want to be with her. She understands that the one that I want to be with is the one that I was engaged to four years ago -- I want to be with Kendall.

Joe: Kendall is happily married.

Ryan: I know, Joe. I know that up here, because people are telling me that. All right? I know that she's married to Zach, and I know they have a child together, and I know that Zach and I were friends, but I don't know it here. I don't know it in my heart, because it doesn't feel right. And honestly, it's very difficult for me to like a guy when he's with the woman that I want.

Joe: Yes, of course, it is. I know it's very difficult.

Ryan: It's beyond difficult -- it's like a huge step above difficult, Joe. I feel like I'm going crazy a little bit, like there's two different Ryans -- the Ryan from four years ago and then the guy that I was before I was shot, and right now, I'm the Ryan from four years ago.

Joe: I wish there was something I could do to help.

Ryan: There is. You can call the Psych ward, and you could have me committed. You can lock me up.

Tad: Hey, mate.

Aidan: How you doing -- all right?

Tad: Yeah. We got a couple of new gigs came in today, you can take your pick.

Aidan: Well, as a matter of fact, I've got a new gig. It's going to take me out of town for a few days.

Tad: Ah.

Aidan: I'm leaving this afternoon. Did you get my message?

Tad: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I did. Um -- sorry. So, you going to tell me what the new gig's about or not?

Aidan: I'm just working on something for a friend.

Tad: What friend?

Aidan: Zach -- Zach Slater.

Tad: Oh.

Aidan: Well, as a matter of fact, it's -- it Kendall.

Tad: Well, what are you doing for Kendall?

Aidan: She's going on a book tour.

Tad: Ah, yeah, that's right -- "Charm!" Right? I -- I mean, uh -- Krystal read it and Opal's on her third pass, because you know, apparently, there's -- huh -- a whole lot of steam in those pages.

Aidan: I guess. So, I'm going to go to L.A. with Kendall to keep an eye on her.

Tad: While she signs autographs? Come on. There's got to be more to it than that.

Aidan: Well, there is, yeah, because Ryan's lost his memory. He can't remember the last four years, right?

Tad: Yeah, I heard, I heard.

Aidan: So he still thinks he's in love with Kendall, and he's not exactly happy that Zach's with her, and it's getting kind of tense.

Tad: Ha. So Slater is paying you to ride shotgun in case Ryan shows up?

Aidan: Something like that.

Tad: [English accent] Oh, well, you poor sailor. My heart bleeds for you, mate -- thinking about you sitting out there by the pool, drinking something with an umbrella in it, right? "Umbrella" -- did I say it right? [Normal voice] Yeah, killing time with a beautiful author -- my heart bleeds for you, baby. You're going to hate every minute of it.

Aidan: As a matter of fact, I will, Tad, because Kendall is the last person that I want to be alone with.

Kendall: We are working on the "Charm!" perfume fragrance, so we've got to get the formula down before I go to the airport.

Amanda: Yes, the famous author starts her book tour.

Greenlee: Stop yapping, start sniffing.

Babe: Ok, so where do we start?

Kendall: Ladies, it's all in the nose.

[Amanda sneezes]

Amanda: Oh.

Kendall: Bless you. Greenlee.

Greenlee: Yeah?

Kendall: Show them how it's done, honey. All right -- ah. A fragrance, like music, is created with notes.

["Beethoven's Fifth" plays loudly]

Greenlee: Sorry, sorry, sorry.

[Greenlee turns music down]

Kendall: Yeah, ok. Uh -- there are three kinds of notes in a fragrance. We start with the top notes --

[Classical music plays]

Kendall: The bass notes --

[Smooth jazz plays]

Kendall: And the heart notes.

Babe: Oh.

[Easy listening plays]

Greenlee: Sorry.

Kendall: Yeah, ok. So we choose the notes that we want and then we combine it, and we have our fragrance.

[Music stops]

Kendall: Now, we're going to go ahead and pick through all of these materials that you see here today as Greenlee will show you -- yes. Now, these bottles contain all sorts of essential oils from different flowers and exotics and spices. They're all organic, so we combine them together until we have the notes that we want.

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Now, we're going to break it down to parts. For example, to have a lovely fragrance you can use three parts freesia -- I like that -- three parts roses --

Greenlee: Got it.

Kendall: And how about one part vanilla?

Greenlee: Vanilla.

Kendall: Get the bean -- ok. We have our stuff. Now, what we're going to do is we're going to blend it all together, and we're going to make a nice combination of materials into an accord -- you like that word "accord"?

Amanda: Wow.

Kendall: That is a combination of aromatic materials! I'm very excited about this -- can't you see?

Babe: Yes.

Kendall: Ok, blend away, honey. Careful now. See that? That's it. So, any questions?

Babe: Yeah -- do you really think we're going to be able to whip up a scent here today?

Greenlee: Hey. If we can make stove-top lip color, we can make desktop perfume. Now, let's go!

Kendall: Come on -- ok, go. You go with Greenlee while you come with me.

Amanda: Ok.

Kendall: We're going to sniff some things, so --

Amanda: Ok.

Kendall: Try the lavender. Don't sneeze on it. And --

Amanda: Uh, uh -- hi.

Greenlee: Oh. Hey, guys. More inspiration has arrived.

[Erica gasps]

Erica: Be careful with that award -- it's very fragile.

Jack: Erica, you can't do this.

Erica: No, the network can't do this, Jack. "New Beginnings" is daytime television. They can't just take it off the air.

Pam: Yes, they can.

Erica: Pam, would you just try to be a little bit more supportive?

Jack: Actually, Pam's right -- they can. I've got your contract right here.

Erica: Are you taking their side?

Jack: No, I'm on your side. It says there's a morals cause here.

Erica: What?

Jack: The network has a legal right to terminate.

Erica: Well, then you just have to find a legal way to stop them. Val, would you please refile these?

Val: Of course.

Erica: The network is completely overreacting to these ridiculous charges -- and let's not forget they are just charges, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, but they're very serious charges, and they should be your top priority right now.

Erica: Samuel Woods has just dreamt this whole insider trading thing up just, so he can keep on getting the publicity he's been getting from me -- that's all. Pam, I want you to take my makeup kit back to my dressing room. I want you to set up every lipstick just the way I had it.

Val: I'll do it. I have the setup memorized -- freakishly.

Jack: Erica, I agree Sam targeted you because of your celebrity, but unfortunately, the guy's got a case.

Erica: I don't believe what I'm hearing.

Jack: Look, you bought 10,000 shares of Chandler. The very next day, Adam made the announcement that he was reacquiring his company.

Erica: So?

Jack: So, the stock skyrocketed, you sold your shares, and you made, like, what -- a $500,000 profit?

Erica: Yeah. I made a great business decision. Adam didn't tell me that the stock price was going to go up, Adam didn't tell me to -- to buy or sell.

Jack: That doesn't matter.

Erica: Why not?

Jack: Look, I'm just trying to explain to you what we're up against here --

Erica: Look, I am not a criminal, Jack. I am not guilty.

Samuel: You're absolutely right, Erica. You're innocent -- until I prove you guilty.

Annie: I am sick of everyone telling me that Ryan will love me again. Ryan may never get his memory back, Zach, and even if he did, there's no guarantee that he would have feelings for me.

Zach: No, there are no guarantees, but he did love you once.

Annie: Yeah -- and now he's fallen out of love. I mean, maybe I have to consider the possibility of divorce.

Zach: I think you're jumping the gun a little bit.

Annie: I'm being realistic. You know, after Ryan was shot, I stayed up that night thanking God for sparing him.

Zach: The guy's got nine lives, doesn't he?

Annie: You know what kept me awake last night? A question -- a really, really horrible question.

Zach: You can't shock me.

Annie: Would it have been better for everyone if Ryan hadn't survived?

Zach: You believe that?

Annie: I don't know what I believe anymore.

Aidan: What?

Tad: What do you mean, "what?" You just snapped at me -- I'm hurt.

Aidan: Give me a break.

Tad: Why don't you give me a break? What's got you so crabby?

Aidan: Well, I don't exactly want to go to L.A.

Tad: So don't go to L.A.

Aidan: Well, Zach won't exactly take no for an answer.

Tad: Oh, well, gee -- you want me to write you a note?

Aidan: Would you? Don't be silly.

Tad: Me? What -- you're the one being silly. Why wouldn't you be thrilled to go out and spend, you know, a few days in Hollywood with Kendall? Aren't you two friends?

Aidan: Kind of.

Tad: God. What is with you? You've been acting weird for the past few weeks -- you know that? Snap out of it.

Aidan: I've got a lot on my mind, Tad.

Tad: [English accent] Well, obviously, but as your friend and partner, why don't you try talking to me about it rather than unloading on me?

Aidan: I have to get going. I'll give you a call from L.A.

Tad: [Normal voice] Yeah, well, enjoy your trip.

Aidan: Yeah. Yeah, right.

Tad: Oh. It's got to be a woman.

Greenlee: Hey, Max. Hey, guys. Thanks for making time for us.

Max: I do house calls when necessary. Are they up for this?

Greenlee: Uh, they will be -- yeah. You can just go set up in the lounge -- it's right around the corner.

Kendall: Uh -- ok. Greenlee, who were those guys?

Babe: And what are they carrying into the lounge?

Kendall: Greenlee?

Greenlee: Trust me -- you're going to like it.

Amanda: I think I know that Max guy from somewhere.

Babe: Huh -- and why doesn't that surprise me?

Kendall: All right, ok, ok. Enough with the guy talk -- let's get to working, ladies. Now, find the essences that speak to you.

Greenlee: Find the scents that scream "Charm!"

[Bottle hits floor]

Greenlee: Kendal oh.

Greenlee: Oh, it's ok.

Kendall: Oh -- no. No, it's not.

[Amanda sneezes]

Kendall: Stop your damn sneezing.

Greenlee: Talk to me.

Kendall: Oh. I just -- I don't know. I'm just -- I'm stressed out. I -- we have a deadline to make, and -- and I've got to -- got to make my -- I have to -- I have to make my flight.

Greenlee: Listen. We'll make the deadline, you'll make your flight.

Kendall: I don' t want to go.

Greenlee: Yeah, you know, I don't blame you. You're going to be staying at the most wicked hotel in L.A., everyone will be treating you like a celebrity, because you are one now, everyone will be fawning all over you, and I pretty much hate you right now.

Kendall: But I don't want to leave my kids or Zach or my mom. I mean, she could go to prison.

Greenlee: Erica is not going to be tried and convicted overnight. She and Zach and the boys will all be fine. You need to go out there and have some fun -- plus put some distance between you and Ryan.

Kendall: Oh, God -- Ryan.

Greenlee: Oh, don't worry. I'm going to handle him.

Kendall: Oh, really?

Greenlee: Yes. I'm going to make him remember.

Kendall: Ok, how are you going to do that?

Greenlee: Don't you worry about it, ok? You just go and have a good time -- Aidan will be with you. He'll help you have a good time. Don't have too good of a time.

Kendall: What is that supposed to mean?

Greenlee: Keep your hands off my guy.

Kendall: You think I want Aidan? What have I ever done to make you think that?

Erica: Why are you here, Samuel?

Samuel: Oh, you didn't tell her?

Jack: I didn't get a chance, Sam.

Erica: You knew he was coming here?

Jack: I asked him to come here.

Erica: Why?

Jack: So that the three of us could discuss this situation.

Samuel: I'm willing to answer any questions you might have about the charges or how I plan to proceed.

Erica: I understand the charges. You think I had inside information, and you think that I used that information to make money.

Samuel: Exactly. And that's in violation of the Securities and Exchange Commission statutes. That's like you knowing a secret and using that secret to make a profit.

Erica: Thank you for that clarification. I know another secret.

Jack: Erica, don't.

Samuel: No, no, no. Please, let her finish. What's your other secret, Erica?

Erica: The secret is -- you're guilty of the same crime.

Samuel: I may be guilty of a lot of things, Erica, but guilty of your crime -- how do you figure that?

Jack: Erica, can we talk?

Erica: Don't worry, Jackson -- I know exactly what I'm doing. You used confidential information against me.

Samuel: The SEC has a right to investigate any questionable trade.

Erica: This has nothing to do with the SEC -- this is between you and me. This is personal.

Jack: Erica, be careful.

Erica: No, I'm -- it's all right. I am just clarifying my position for Mr. Woods. You needed to go after a name, a big name, so that when you brought that big name down, everyone would take notice of you. You're working the system right now, Mr. Woods, so that your career benefits, and you're saying "To hell with Erica Kane." Big mistake, because the charges against me will be dropped, and I will devote every breath I have to exposing you, to showing people exactly how devious you are, exactly how you exploit people for your personal gain.

Samuel: So now I'm exploiting you, huh? I got to tell you what -- after all, you are a very entertaining lady.

Erica: Well, I won't be so entertaining when I go to the press with something I know about your family.

Zach: All right. Ready for Hollywood?

Aidan: I guess so.

Zach: Kendall called, she's going to be a little late meeting us. Um --

Aidan: Cheers.

Zach: Thanks for doing this.

Aidan: It's a job.

Zach: Yeah. Annie came by and she told me she threw out Ryan last night.

Aidan: And you think he's going to follow us?

Zach: I think he would if he knew you were going. Anyway, this is the name and the address of the hotel where you'll be staying. I got you adjoining rooms.

Aidan: I don't think that's such a good idea, Zach.

Greenlee: I know you don't want Aidan -- I was joking. Ha-ha, funny.

Kendall: Sorry.

Greenlee: And if you did want him, I'd have to kill you.

Kendall: Ha-ha -- funny.

Greenlee: Listen, calm down, take a deep breath. We'll make the perfume, you'll get on your plane to L.A., and I'll do what I can with Ryan.

Annie: Sorry I'm late.

[Amanda sneezes]

Babe: Oh, you know what? I have some allergy medication in my purse.

Amanda: Drugs, drugs, give me drugs.

Annie: Uh -- so, working on the perfume?

Greenlee: Yeah. We could use your help.

Annie: Sure. What do you have so far?

Kendall: Well, right now, we're working on the notes.

Annie: Top, bass, heart.

Kendall: You've done your homework.

Annie: It's part of my job.

Babe: You know what? I don't think we should go with an ordinary, predictable scent.

Greenlee: You know, we need something to "charm" the pants off the opposite sex.

Amanda: Ooh, I like that thought.

Greenlee: So, maybe we should go a little more animalistic.

Annie: What about the fragrance you talk about in your book?

Kendall: No, that was just something I threw together. No.

Annie: Well -- where was it? Where was it? Uh -- "for my bass note, I chose white cedar, which has an earthly odor that's calming and an aphrodisiac."

Amanda: I got to read that book.

Annie: Yeah. I mean, I -- I actually really like what you wrote here. I feel like this could be a good recipe.

Kendall: Really? Thank you. That's -- that's flattering.

Annie: Well, it wasn't my intention. You have enough people flattering you, my husband included.

Greenlee: Ok, I think that we should take a break, and I'm sure Max is ready to give us exactly what we need.

Joe: Call the wife and let me know when she arrives, yeah. I'm not going to commit you, Ryan.

Ryan: They still do electric shock therapy, right?

Joe: For some disorders, yes.

Ryan: Well, then maybe they can shock my memory back.

Joe: Doesn't work with amnesia patients.

Ryan: Well, it's not like I've forgotten everything. I've only forgotten the last four years, so maybe it'll work with this kind of amnesia.

Joe: Ryan, I want you to make another appointment with your therapist. Tell him --

Ryan: I talked to him, I've talked this to death, I've talked to my therapist. I've talked to Annie -- it doesn't help, ok? Joe, I don't remember my child, my little girl, ok? And that kills me. I hate what this is doing to Emma, I hate what this is doing to Annie. I hate the fact that I can't let go of a woman who has moved on with somebody else -- I can't live like this!

Joe: Ryan, Ryan, the -- the phone call I just got was from the E.R. I have to go now and tell a young mother that her husband just died. The young woman is pregnant, and she has a 2-year-old.

Ryan: And -- and you have to go and --

Joe: I have to tell her that her husband died before he ever got a chance to see the baby she's carrying. Now, Ryan, you were shot in the head, which means you are very lucky to be alive. Yes, you do have problems, but you're smart, and you are resilient. And I think you can find a way to deal with those problems.

[Phone rings]

Joe: Yep? Wife has arrived? Yep, ok, I'm on my way, yeah.

Kendall: What? Is -- is this for real?

Greenlee: Oh, yeah.

Kendall: Wait --

Babe: Oh, my God.

Amanda: Oh, baby.

Greenlee: Cue the lights and music, Max!

[Music plays]

Greenlee: Ok, ladies. We are about to become pole-dancing goddesses.


Samuel: You need to contain your client, Jack, before we have to add blackmail to her other charges. I don't know what she thinks she knows about my family.

Erica: Every family has skeletons in the closet, Mr. Woods.

[Phone rings]

Samuel: I got to get this. Excuse me.

Jack: Sure. You do know you're not helping yourself here. You can't bully a U.S. attorney and expect to win.

Erica: I am not a child, Jack.

Jack: Please, just let me do the talking, please. Samuel, let me tell you the reason I called you over here today.

Samuel: Yeah, you'd like to make a deal.

Erica: I do not want to make a deal.

Samuel: Well, Erica, in this case, we agree, because I don't really want to make a deal, either.

Jack: Look, Samuel, you talk about wanting to help the people. You and I both know that the courts are crowded -- crowded with real criminals who are going to plead out, no jail time. And because of who Erica Kane is, this trial could tie up that court for weeks and weeks.

Erica: That's exactly what he wants, Jack. He wants the publicity.

Samuel: What did you have in mind?

Erica: Jack, don't do this.

Jack: We're thinking one year, suspended sentence, a million-dollar fine, community service.

Erica: You have got to be kidding!

Jack: Well, Samuel?

Zach: I got you adjoining rooms, because I want you to keep an eye on her.

Aidan: I'm a professional, Zach. I know how to keep an eye on a client without having to sleep with her.

Zach: I didn't ask you to sleep with her. Where's the sarcasm coming from?

Aidan: I'm sorry, I'm just -- I'm just used to making my own decisions when it comes to safety, you know?

Zach: Is something else bugging you?

Aidan: No. We're good.

Zach: Ok. Ah. I need a new head of security for Cambias and for my casinos. So when you get back, we should talk. And don't worry, the job doesn't include baby-sitting my wife.

Aidan: That would be a real deal breaker.

[Music plays]

Kendall: Pole dancing -- wow.

Greenlee: The dance where we do the leading.

Babe: We start the morning off as perfumers, and presto, we're exotic dancers.

Amanda: Something tells me this is going to be a lot more fun than the perfume gig. Totally more fun.

Man: Do you need an audience?

Max: I think they'll be fine, thank you.

Amanda: Come on.

Greenlee: Oh, ho, ho.

Babe: So are we really going to do this, ladies?

Greenlee: Yeah. You know, everyone's doing it.

Kendall: No, it's true. It is the hot new aerobic workout.

Max: Oh, it's more than that. Pole dancing is an art.

Greenlee: It's empowering. It's naughty. Ok, Max is going to teach us the basics.

Max: You know, the basic movement -- the spin, the pole climb --

[Greenlee chuckles]

Max: I'll take you through it one at a time. Who wants to go first?

Greenlee: Huh. Not me, not me.

Annie: Take me.

[Music plays]


Greenlee: Shake it!

Kendall: Whoo!

Greenlee: Shake it!

Kendall: Like that? Like that? And then your head back.

Kendall and Greenlee: Whoo!

Kendall: All right!

Max: Great job, ladies.

[Turns off music]

Greenlee: Thank you so much, Max.

Kendall: Oh, thank you.

Babe: Thanks, Max.

Greenlee: Thank you, thank you. I really appreciate it.

Max: You're welcome.

Amanda: You're welcome back anytime.

Greenlee: Wow. Annie -- you were born to pole dance.

Kendall: I think so.

Annie: The perfume --

Kendall: What about it?

Annie: We don't want the fragrance from your book. Yeah, woodsy, sweet, airy -- that's not going to cut it. Our perfume should make women feel the way we just did. It should give them a high, you know? We want -- we want vibrant and sexy. We want heat.

Greenlee: You sold me.

Kendall: Yeah, me, too.

Babe: You're brilliant, and you know how to work your way around the pole.

Amanda: You are now officially my idol. Oh, my God -- I -- I don't know if it's the allergy medicine or the -- the endorphins, but my heart is racing. You guys, I think I'm going to keel over.

Babe: Ok, let's go down to ConFusion, we'll get you hydrated, and we'll relax, ok?

Greenlee: Yeah, go.

Kendall: Go. Breathe, breathe. Huh. Well, nice work on the perfume. You nailed it.

Greenlee: Um --

Kendall: Ahem.

Greenlee: Last one back on the pole's a rotten egg.

Kendall: I'm in.

Annie: Ok.

[Annie laughs]

[Music plays]

Greenlee: All right!

Annie: I need to release some heat, some of that -- that smoke.

Kendall: Ta-da, uh-huh

Greenlee: Whoo! Whoa!

Kendall: There you go! There you go!

Annie: I want it! Oh, yeah!

Kendall: Whoo-hoo!

Annie: Oh, yeah!

Kendall: Whoo!

[Kendall laughs as Ryan walks in and stares at her]

Samuel: You brought up some good points, Jack. You've come a long way since we were in court together.

Jack: Will you take our deal, Sam?

Erica: I don't care if Mr. Woods accepts this. I am not accepting this.

Samuel: Oh, don't worry, because I'm not accepting it, either. But I will drop the bribery charge and accept a two-year sentence, 18 months suspended with probation, and a $5 million fine.

Jack: Oh, come on --

Erica: I am not spending six months in jail.

Samuel: Erica, if you go to court with this and you lose, you could get five years.

Erica: Are you out of your mind?

Samuel: And in an election year, if you find a law-and-order judge, you could be looking at 10.

Jack: All right, all right, that's enough. Don't try to intimidate my client.

Samuel: I'm not intimidating her. This is a gift. And you need to advise her to accept it. Look, I got to run. You take your time, make up your mind. I'll give you 24 hours, ok? Erica, as usual, it's been a pleasure.

Jack: Thank you for your time, Samuel.

Erica: Tell me he can't do this to me, Jack. He can't put me away for 5 to 10 years because I -- I sold stock.

Jack: Worse-case scenario, he can put you away for 20 years! And yes, yes, he can.

Erica: Oh, my God.

Jack: Erica, listen to me. I'm going to do everything I can to make sure you don't go down, ok?

Erica: Oh, there is only one person who's going down, Jack, and that is Samuel Woods.

Tad: There he is. Hey, Pop.

Joe: Hi, son.

Tad: Good to see you.

Joe: Come on in.

Tad: Dad, you all right?

Joe: Yeah, yeah. I just had to tell a young woman her husband died.

Tad: Oh, I'm sorry.

Joe: Yeah.

Tad: It's the worst part of the job.

Joe: Well, it never gets any easier. I remember when Jesse died, how devastated Angie was. Anyway -- anyway, what brings you by?

Tad: Uh -- well, it's -- it's kind of funny you mention it, because, see, Angie's brought back a bunch of memories for me, too. A lot of them are about Jesse. I'm just wondering -- um -- do you remember who it was that actually transferred his body from the hospital over to the morgue?

Joe: My goodness -- that's a strange question. No, I -- I just assumed somebody on the staff did. Why?

Tad: You know, I was just -- like I said, seeing Angie, you know?

Joe: Yeah.

Tad: I kind of miss him.

[Phone rings]

Tad: Well, I'll let you get back to work, huh?

Joe: Ok, son. Good seeing you again.

Tad: Yes, it is, Dr. Dad.

Joe: Yeah, Dr. Martin. Well, the toxicologist was named Dr. Angie Hubbard. No, she left Pine Valley a few days ago, yeah. No, I can't give you her personal number, but you can always reach her at the Wagner Clinic in New York City. Yeah? Would you like that number? All right, hang on. It's 646-555-0167.

[Music plays at ConFusion]

Zach: Kendall should've been here by now.

[Amanda sighs]

Amanda: Hey, can I get a water? Make it a double.

Babe: Yeah. And set me up with the same, and hose us down, while you're at it.

Amanda: Yeah. Huh.

Zach: Have you seen my wife?

Babe: Yeah. She and Greenlee are probably still upstairs on the pole.

Aidan: Pole?

Babe: Should we break it to them?

Amanda: Well, they do have a right to know.

Babe: Your wife and your girlfriend are working on new careers.

Zach: What careers are these?

Amanda: Strippers.

Singer: Can you feel it? Tell me you can

[Music plays]

Greenlee: Whoo! Ha! We are just blowing off some steam.

Kendall: Yeah. You know what? Ryan, you should try it.

Greenlee: Yeah, Ryan. Um -- come on, let's --

Ryan: Yeah, absolutely.

Greenlee: You take that coat off.

Ryan: I'll absolutely get up on a pole and dance with you. What is going on in here?

Greenlee: Annie can show you some moves.

Ryan: What are you doing? Guys, guys, guys, what is going -- wow. Whoa!

Greenlee: Look, and you have --

Ryan: You're crazy -- what? Whoa!

Greenlee: Annie, Annie -- Annie, dance with him.

Ryan: Ok.

Kendall: Come on. She's --

Ryan: Is this what you do all day here at Fusion?

Kendall: Just watch her.

Greenlee: Come on, go on!

Kendall: Follow the beat.

Greenlee: Go on. Go on.

Ryan: Ok. Annie, wow. Ok.

Annie: Whoo!

Ryan: Whoa.

Greenlee: Oh, sexy mama! Whoo!

Annie: Ooh!

Greenlee: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Whoo! All right!

Annie: Whoo!

Greenlee: Come on!

Annie: Whoo.

Kendall: Oh, yes.

Greenlee: Take the stage.

Kendall: Take the stage.

Greenlee: The stage.

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

Zach: Don't stop on our account. Fusion fun -- makeup, perfume, and go-go boy.

Man: So what do we do with Chandler now?

Richie: Get rid of him.

Jesse: You need to do something for me, and you're not going to like it.
