Robert: I'm Tad's uncle. The name is Robert. And you are?

Jesse: Tad's not here.

Robert: Ok. Well, I just came by to see if he wanted to get together tomorrow and -- I'm sorry, but I didn't catch your names.

Jesse: Well, we didn't actually throw them.

Robert: Huh.

Jesse: But I did say Tad's not here. I could pass him a message, if that's ok? Anything else?

Robert: No, thanks.

Jesse: All righty, then.

Frankie: So what do you think?

Jesse: I don't know.

Frankie: You think this guy's lying?

Jesse: No. Tad said he had an uncle that was in town, so --

Frankie: Well, may I should follow him, you know, check him out.

Jesse: No, no, no, leave it alone, kid. I'll talk to Tad. You -- home.

Frankie: I'm staying.

Jesse: I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to be fine, all right? Leave it alone. Go home, get some sleep. Get serious, all right? Go.

Frankie: Night.

Jesse: Night -- son.

Joe: Well, looks like your fever has broken, J.R.

J.R.: But you still don't know what's wrong with me, right? Oh, this is great. My day just gets better and better.

Adam: Any idea what's wrong with my son?

J.R.: Don't answer that. What's wrong with me is you're here. So why don't you turn around and go home?

Josh: Enrico, Pine Valley is less than an hour from New York City by jet.

Enrico: My schedule is already very full.

Josh: Well, just an hour of your time, that's all we're asking. One hour, face to face, you'll get to see what Cambias is all about, and I guarantee you're going to want to jump at the opportunity to partner with us.

Enrico: You're very sure of yourself, Mr. Madden, I like that. But as I told you, I have back-to-back business meetings before I return to Italy. I am so sorry.

Zach: Well, then forget about business. Come down here for a little R and R, go play at the casino. Monte Carlo's got nothing on us.

Enrico: It does sound enticing.

Josh: So is that a yes?

Enrico: My assistant tells me I have another call. I'll get back to you.

[Line disconnects]

Josh: Damn, I thought we had him.

Zach: I smell Adam Chandler all over this thing.

Josh: What, do you think he got to him?

Zach: I don't know. Rattle a few cages and let me know.

Annie: Oh --

Kendall: Ryan, what are you doing here?

Ryan: I think the better question is, what is he doing here?

Kendall: This is not what it looks like.

Ryan: I'm not talking about what it looks like, Kendall, I'm talking about the whole guard-dog thing. What is up with that?

Aidan: I'm just doing my job.

Ryan: Which is?

Aidan: Protecting Kendall.

Ryan: From me? So this -- this is your handiwork?

Aidan: Zach asked me to protect his wife, and that is exactly what I'm doing.

Ryan: Are you kidding me? I got to tell you, I had no idea that Zach saw me as such a threat.

Kendall: Ok, Ryan, I think you better leave now.

Ryan: No, I think I'd rather stay.

Annie: Hey. I hope I'm not disturbing you guys.

Zach: It's just business.

Annie: Oh.

Josh: How you doing, Annie?

Annie: Hey.

Josh: I'll be at the office if you need anything.

Zach: Thanks.

Annie: Bye.

Zach: Come on in.

Annie: Sorry, it's late. I should've called first.

Zach: Come on in. What's going on with you?

Annie: Everything is -- uh -- everything's good, actually. Um -- I downloaded these articles for Spike -- they're about his new implant.

Zach: Oh, good.

Annie: Yeah.

Zach: I'll put them on his desk, he can read it in the morning.

Annie: I miss him.

Zach: He misses you. He was just saying today, "Where's Annie -- I haven't seen her, she doesn't call."

Annie: Wait, really? You speak toddler talk now?

Zach: Yeah, no, I always have.

Annie: Cool.

Zach: Kids and animals -- we have a connection with them.

[Annie laughs]

Zach: Anyway --

Annie: But anyway --

Zach: So, are you here to see us, or is there something else?

Annie: Ryan and I -- it's -- uh -- it's better, Zach. I think we're actually starting to turn the corner.

Aidan: Let's not do this, mate, all right? You shouldn't be here.

Ryan: Well, first of all, I'm not your "mate."

Kendall: Ok, Ryan, come on.

Ryan: And second of all, I'm going to leave it up to Kendall whether she wants me here or not.

Kendall: Ok, stop it, ok, stop. Now, Ryan, what is it? What do you want from me?

Ryan: I need to talk to you --

Aidan: You flew 3,000 miles just to talk?

Ryan: Preferably alone.

Aidan: Yeah, I'm sure you want to be alone.

Ryan: Yeah, well, you keep it up and you really will have problem with me, Aidan.

Aidan: Why -- what, you're going to fight me now? Is that it?

Ryan: Are you kidding me?

Kendall: That's enough, enough!

Aidan: Yeah, you're right, it is enough. Kendall, it's my job to make sure that you two don't come into contact with each other. All right, you didn't think he was going to turn up here? He has flown 3,000 miles across the country just to talk.

Ryan: Ok, all right. Ok, people. The last thing I want to do is cause Kendall harm, all right? I wouldn't have done this unless it was really, really important. Ok?

Kendall: Yes, Ryan, I know that, I know that. But Zach is worried about all of this -- I mean, you only remembering me and us?

Ryan: Ok, all right. Uh -- yeah, I -- I get it. You know, I suppose I would probably feel the same way if I were in his shoes, but come on. I mean, look at me, really look at me. Do you honestly believe that I would do anything, anything at all, to cause you harm?

Angie: Is anybody out there?

Tad: I don't know. It looks clear.

Jesse: What are we looking at?

Angie: Tad thinks somebody is following us.

Tad: No, not "thinks" -- knows. Maybe not right now, but there was definitely somebody there at Mrs. Remington's.

Jesse: Are you ok?

Angie: A little nervous.

Tad: Listen, what was it look like around here? Was it quiet?

Jesse: Well, until your Uncle Rob showed up.

Tad: What?

Jesse: What, does he think you live here? Second time he came through.

Tad: Jesse, what the hell did he want?

Jesse: He said he wanted to talk to you.

Tad: Well, did he recognize you?

Jesse: I don't think so, but, you know, you never know.

Tad: Ok, well, you know what? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. If it's going to turn into Grand Central out here, then it's definitely time for plan b, which means we got to find you a safer place to stay until we know who's after you.

Angie: Do you have any ideas?

Jesse: I've got an idea. Wherever that safer place is, you and Frankie cannot be there with me.

Angie: Oh, Jesse --

Jesse: Angie, I'm serious. I don't want to make you and Frankie more of a target than I already have.

Tad: Angela, I'm sorry, but he's right. It's way too dangerous, especially if there's actually somebody out there watching us.

Jesse: You know what? You need to get Krystal and the baby out of the house, too.

Tad: I know, I'm way ahead of you.

Jesse: I can't believe what I'm doing to your family here, Tad.

Tad: Jesse, look, I got a very big family. And you two, Frankie -- you're definitely part of it, ok? So don't worry. We are going to do whatever we have to to keep everybody safe.

Adam: I'm worried about your health, son.

J.R.: No, you're worried that I was in detox sweating out the gallons of booze you thought I was drinking.

Joe: Ok, may I cut in?

Adam: Yes, by all means.

Joe: J.R. has a bacterial infection, which we're treating with antibiotics. His fever seems to have broken, and that's a good sign.

Adam: What could've caused that?

J.R.: Well, you know, Dad, sleeping with hookers, you're liable to catch just about anything.

Adam: Will you stop being an ass for five minutes while I get some answers?

Joe: Ok, we're still running tests, Adam. However, there are suspicious puncture wounds on both his hips, which we believe are the source of the infection. We'll keep you posted.

J.R.: When can I go home, Joe?

Joe: Tomorrow morning.

J.R.: I feel fine.

Joe: You'll feel better tomorrow morning. Get some rest.

J.R.: What? What do you want?

Adam: The truth -- what really happened, if you even know.

J.R.: I told you the truth, you chose to ignore it.

Adam: Well, I wasn't alone on that.

J.R.: Oh, yes, that's right. You and Babe finally agree on something.

Adam: What do you expect, J.R., with your track record? They come in, there you are -- you, a bottle of booze, and a cheap woman.

J.R.: Yeah. I guess I've used up all my sympathy cards, haven't I?

Adam: Yeah. And you with this outrageous story about being drugged and kidnapped -- by whom, for what?

J.R.: I didn't think to ask because I was unconscious!

Adam: Calm down, please.

J.R.: Oh, I'd really like to, Dad. But when you're here making me feel low and useless, I get a little agitated. So why don't you go home, please?

Adam: I can't.

J.R.: Why not? You've done your civic duty. You've checked in on your disappointing son. All your obligations are done.

Adam: I want to help, J.R. I want to make things better with us.

Krystal: I cannot believe you are not sleepy. I just can't believe it. I can't believe it.

Tad: Hey, gorgeous.

Krystal: Hey.

Tad: What's she doing up so late?

Krystal: Well, somebody was craving a midnight snack. Does that sound familiar?

Tad: Well, it's not midnight.

Krystal: What's wrong?

Tad: I'll tell you what -- let me put her down just for a few minutes, because you and I got some things to discuss.

Krystal: That sounds serious.

Tad: It is.

Krystal: I hope -- I hope nobody's hurt.

Tad: Everybody's fine.

[Jenny fusses]

Tad: Well, for right now anyway, but I'm beginning to think that could change at any moment.

Krystal: All right, now you're scaring me, Tad. What is going on?

Tad: Well --

Krystal: What?

Tad: We took your advice. Angie and I went out to go see Mrs. Remington.

Krystal: That dead guy's mother?

Tad: That's right. And the entire time we're there, I'm 100% positive someone was watching us the whole time.

Krystal: Just watching?

Tad: So far.

Krystal: Who?

Tad: Don't know. That's what scares me half to death. I mean, it's possible that anybody could be after us.

Krystal: By us, you mean --

Tad: I mean all of us.

Krystal: Babe and Little A?

Tad: It's possible, I don't know.

Krystal: Oh, God.

Tad: Honey, I don't know what to tell you. Look, we knew from the start, as soon as the people chasing Jesse found out he was alive, that this might happen. Well, guess what. We were right.

Krystal: Ok, what do we do? We got to call the police.

Tad: We can't. They couldn't keep Jesse safe 20 years ago. Hell, to this day, he's not even sure they weren't in on it. We can't be, either.

Krystal: Bodyguards?

Tad: On my salary? Is there somebody back home that you and Jenny could stay with just for a while?

Krystal: No, no, no.

Tad: Darling, please?

Krystal: Tad, I'm not going to leave you and Babe here, no way!

Tad: This is not the time for you to be stubborn. I'm begging you. I am begging you. I have lost way too many people -- Jenny, Dixie, little Kate. Honey, let me do this. I have to make sure nothing happens to the people I love.

Kendall: Of course, I'm not afraid of you, Ryan. Sit down.

Aidan: Kendall --

Kendall: What?

Aidan: Zach.

Kendall: Zach? Yes, I know that Zach would not approve of this, but come on, you guys, this is ridiculous. We're all friends -- you and Ryan, too. I mean, you guys used to be really good friends. And a couple of minutes ago, you were both ready to go to war. Now, Ryan will eventually remember all of this -- hopefully sooner rather than later.

Ryan: Which is exactly why I'm here.

Kendall: You remember something?

Ryan: Yes, I did, Kendall, and it was about you. Actually, it was more about us.

Kendall: What was it?

Ryan: We were here. We were in L.A. We were at a bar at the Hotel Royale. And this is a new memory. This has happened afterwards, which is why I flew 3,000 miles to come here, because I wanted to be here to see if this was a real memory or if I was just kind of hoping it was.

Kendall: You were there. I remember that night.

Ryan: You see? So I thought if I came here, that you and I, we could go there together and maybe some more would come back.

Aidan: No, it's not going to happen, ok?

Adam: Huh. It's about the only decent thing they serve in this place. Do you remember when you were just a kid, and you fell out of that big tree, the big one out in the garden -- you broke your arm? What were you, about 6?

J.R.: 8.

Adam: 8, 8, right, right. And you were terrified that you were going to have to spend the night in the hospital.

J.R.: And you snuck in after visiting hours, and you brought me all my favorite superhero comics.

Adam: Yeah, yeah. We spent the whole night reading them. You remember.

J.R.: Yeah. You were definitely my hero then. But, you know, it's like they say -- good things never last.

Adam: I do love you, J.R.

J.R.: Like you love Krystal? You loved her so much, you drove her right out of the house.

Adam: Yeah, right into Tad Martin's house -- "the better man," according to you.

J.R.: No, Tad's not perfect.

Adam: Well, finally something we can agree on.

J.R.: But maybe if I was more like him, people wouldn't assume the worst about me.

Adam: "People," or just me?

J.R.: Well, you, and -- uh --

Adam: Babe?

Kendall: Can you give us a minute, please?

Ryan: I'm not going anywhere.

Kendall: Ok, what the hell is wrong with you?

Aidan: I'm sorry, Kendall, you're not going to make this my problem

Kendall: Ryan needs some information about his past. What harm could it do to spend a little bit of time with him?

Aidan: I don't know. Why don't we call Zach and ask him?

Kendall: Oh, ok. So you don't want to make the boss angry? I didn't realize you were such a slave to authority figures.

Aidan: That "authority figure" happens to be your husband, and he asked me -- in fact, he hired me -- to keep you two apart. As far as I'm concerned, you can go dancing in the Hotel Royale with Ryan. But you have to call Zach, and you have to let him know.

Kendall: Right, so you're off the hook?

Aidan: Well, I'm off the hook. You, on the other hand, will have some explaining to do.

Kendall: Ok.

Aidan: "Ok" what? Ok, we're going to call Zach, and you're going to tell him that you're going to go out for the evening?

Kendall: No, we're not going to call him.

Kendall: Ryan, I'm sorry, but I can't. Maybe when -- when we get home, we can talk.

Ryan: Kendall, I -- you know what? Um -- it's ok. I understand, all right, and I'm sorry if I bothered you.

Kendall: Ryan? The Hotel Royale was the bar that had a view of the whole city, all the way to the beach.

Ryan: Yeah, it was.

Kendall: I do want to help you. You know that, don't you?

Ryan: Of course, I do, yeah.

Kendall: Good. Ok, well, um, take care. We can talk later when we get home. Later, ok?

Ryan: Yeah, sure, sounds good. And, Aidan, I know who to call if I ever get in trouble.

Aidan: Listen, man, I'm sorry. I really am.

Ryan: Yeah, I know -- you were just doing your job.

Zach: And the duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack."

Annie: You call that a duck?

Zach: You shouldn't be such a critic.

[Annie laughs]

Zach: It's a good duck, right? Here, why don't you drink some water -- it'll shut you up for a minute.

Annie: Yeah, yeah. Thanks, Zach. This has been fun -- my date with my miniature heartbreaker.

Zach: And the big heartbreaker is getting his memory back.

Annie: Let's not talk about Ryan -- I don't want to jinx it.

Zach: All right, up to you, you're the boss.

Annie: Mm-hmm.

Zach: She's the boss.

Annie: Mm-hmm.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Oh -- excuse me.

Annie: Oh --

Zach: Hello?

Enrico: Mr. Slater? Enrico Conti.

Zach: Enrico. Did you change your mind? When are you coming down here?

Enrico: Unfortunately, that won't be possible.

Zach: What do you mean? You're the boss, you can do whatever you want.

Enrico: I simply don't have the time, Zach. So much business to take care of here, you know how it is. And the frost destroyed our vineyards -- there won't be any wine this fall.

Annie: Then you should come here.

Enrico: Excuse me, Zach, did your associate Mr. Madden's voice suddenly change?

Zach: No, that was Mrs. Lavery. She's our -- uh -- local wine expert.

Enrico: Really? Are you a Bordeaux girl, Mrs. Lavery?

Annie: Um -- well, I don't know. I'm kind of, uh, a over the map. But I think, you know, there is nothing better than a nice Tuscan red.

Enrico: Uh-huh. Well, I'm partial to a nice, full-bodied Chianti myself.

Annie: Ah. So you're bold, a man of action -- I knew that.

[Enrico chuckles]

Enrico: Well, I'd like to think so.

Annie: Well, might I suggest that you come and pay us a visit and try one of our modest local wines? I mean, not that it would compare with one of your wines, I'm sure, but we have this pinot that I would compare with a -- a California cab, or dare I say a delicate haut-brion?

Enrico: Really?

Annie: Yeah, well, you'd have to be the judge -- that is, if you happen to pay us a visit.

Enrico: Well, you know, I -- I just might do that.

Zach: So when are you coming down?

Enrico: Well, I'll have to move a few things around, but let's say next week.

Zach: Looking forward to it.

Enrico: And I look forward to meeting you, too, Mrs. Lavery.

Annie: Right, of course. Ciao.

Enrico: Ciao, bella.

[Line disconnects]

[Annie and Zach laugh]

Zach: "Ciao, bella" -- yes!

Annie: What did I do?

Zach: Well, you got the Donald Trump of Europe to do some business with Cambias.

Annie: Huh.

Zach: How do you know about local Pennsylvania reds?

Annie: I used to be a waitress.

Zach: Of course.

Annie: They used to test us.

Zach: Well, you passed this test with flying colors.

Annie: Nice, nice.

Zach: Group hug.

Annie: Group hug! High-five, Spikey, high-five. Good boy! Pretty good, huh?

Jesse: So, what was it like meeting Remy's mom?

Angie: She was a sweet lady. A little sad, though, but I can relate.

Jesse: Oh, what do you mean?

Angie: Well, you could see that she still had hope. I mean, even with all the years that Remy was missing, there was still a chance -- until there wasn't.

Jesse: Is that the way you felt, too?

Angie: Oh, God, Jesse. I used to see you around every corner in the beginning. I mean, I knew you were gone, I saw you die, and yet I -- I don't know -- something. You know, it's so devastating losing that tiny flicker of hope. It's like an emptiness that I -- I can't even describe, except that I know I never want to go back there again.

Jesse: I'm so sorry. So sorry.

Singers: Blue sky that he saw falling down falling down falling down falling down

[Frankie follows Rob into a bar]

Annie: So I was ok?

Zach: You were perfect.

Annie: Ok. For a second there, I was scared I stuck my foot in it.

Zach: No, no, no, no, no, you did a great job.

Annie: Aha.

Zach: The man loves wine, he also loves women -- he's a --

Annie: Ah.

Zach: He's a bit of a lech --

Annie: Hmm.

Zach: That way, but -- but that's ok. When he comes down, I'm going to send you on a secret wine mission --

Annie: Oh.

Zach: To the Pennsylvania heartland to find that special red. So --

Annie: I didn't come here to talk about him.

Zach: Talk about who?

Annie: Ryan. Well, I mean, I guess I kind of did, I -- I guess I just wanted you to know because --

Zach: Because of Kendall?

Annie: Because I know how it felt when I woke up one day and suddenly my husband didn't remember knowing me -- or loving me or marrying me -- so I know this can't be easy for you two, either.

Zach: Well, we're handling it.

Annie: Yeah, but come on, Zach. Ryan still thinks he's engaged to Kendall.

Zach: But he's getting better, that's what you said. Am I wrong about that?

Annie: I don't know. He -- um -- he definitely seems more responsive, I guess.

Zach: But?

Annie: I guess I'm just kind of afraid to hope.

Zach: Don't be, you should hope. He loves you. And he may not remember today or tomorrow, but he will, and when he does, he's going to kick himself for missing even one minute with such an incredible woman.

[Spike babbles]

Zach: Right?

[Annie chuckles]

Zach: Ah.

Annie: Yeah.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: I'm sorry.

Kendall: That's ok. You were just doing your job.

Aidan: Are you going to mock me now, is that it? Just so you know, Ryan is my friend, too, and I hate that he's going through this.

Kendall: Ok, I didn't mean it like that.

Aidan: Yes, you did, and now you're sorry -- that's Kendall. It's you in a nutshell.

Kendall: You know me so well.

Aidan: Better than most.

Kendall: Well, Ryan still thinks I'm the key to getting his memory back.

Aidan: Yep, I know. But it's not going to happen here, not now.

Kendall: Right, not on your watch.

Aidan: Exactly -- "once a soldier, always a soldier."

Kendall: Well, I really want to thank you for protecting me.

Aidan: Is that my cue to say good night, is it?

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, I think it is.

Aidan: So you're going to be all right here tonight -- alone?

Kendall: I'll be just fine.

Aidan: Ok. Well, have a good night, then. See you in the morning.

Kendall: Ok. All right.

Aidan: Sweet dreams.

Kendall: I hope so. Good night.

Adam: That's what bothers you the most, isn't it -- that she doesn't believe you?

J.R.: You know what? I have an idea. How about we just not talk about Babe ever?

Adam: Ok, right -- you are telling the truth now.

J.R.: Gee, thanks -- I've moved up to hypothetical!

Adam: Petulance isn't very attractive, J.R.

J.R.: Yeah, well, neither is greed or megalomania, but what the hell -- we play the hand that we're dealt.

Adam: All right, all right. So you -- you say you were kidnapped? Could you identify any of them?

J.R.: Can you just stop it? I'd rather you think of me as a drunk. I don't want your help, I don't need it. You want to know why? Because it always comes with strings -- and everyone always gets poisoned in the end.

Nurse: Visiting hours are over, sir.

Adam: Oh, yes, thank you.

J.R.: You're off the hook.

Adam: J.R. --

J.R.: You know, thank you for stopping by. Now you can go back to that big, warm, empty house of yours.

[J.R. winces]

Krystal: Jenny's snoring like a buzz saw, just like her daddy.

Tad: Oh.

Krystal: What's that?

Tad: Oh, it's a list of potential places for you and Jenny to stay for a while.

[Krystal sighs]

Krystal: Where's the moon?

Tad: What's that supposed to mean?

Krystal: Well, I think that just might be the only place I can go to where they can't track me down if they wanted to.

Tad: Yeah. I know -- it's not much of a plan, is it?

Krystal: So why even bother?

Tad: Because, darling, it's all I got right now, I can't come up with something else.

Krystal: The truth is we're -- we're all in this together. And we can't even say that we didn't ask for it, because we did -- both of us did.

Tad: Jenny didn't.

Krystal: I know.

Tad: Baby, help me. We got to find a way to keep our daughter safe -- somehow, someplace that's safe.

Krystal: We could call Fort Knox, see if they have any vacancies. What -- what are you thinking?

Tad: Something ridiculous -- it seems wrong, but it feels right.

Krystal: I'm sorry, you're going to have to run that by me one more time.

Tad: So just hear me out, ok? What if we do this?

Jesse: God, where in the hell is Tad, why is it taking him so long?

Angie: Oh, Jesse, calm down.

Jesse: I'm sorry, baby, but the idea of somebody watching you at that house -- it's just bugging me out!

Angie: Here, drink this.

Jesse: Ugh.

Angie: Bad?

Jesse: What the hell is this? That's nasty, it tastes like tree.

[Angie laughs]

Angie: I knew the risk that I was taking being with you -- you made that perfectly clear. But as hard as this is, and as terrifying and dangerous as I know that it must be, I'd rather be right here with you than anywhere else.

Jesse: Can you ever forgive me for putting you and Frankie through all this?

Angie: There's nothing to forgive.

Jesse: Not the running, the hiding?

Angie: For you, baby? And the best thing of all is seeing Frankie with his daddy. I mean, he's a grown man, but you can still see it in his eyes. He adores you, Jesse. You're still his hero, and there is nothing that boy wouldn't do for you.

[Music plays]

Singer: See how you run see how you hide from me whatever it is, baby it's history

Singers: I know the shadow that crosses your face I wanna chase it away

Frankie: Hey, I -- I didn't order that.

Waiter: No, the gentleman over there did.

Singers: There are scars that won't heal you're afraid to reveal yourself to me don't you see? I'm just like you underneath this weathered skin stripped away of all our sins will you cry some more we know we're all a little bit damaged a little bit damaged

Robert: You struck me as a scotch man, hmm? Would you care to join me?

Tad: Honey?

Krystal: No.

Tad: Yeah.

Krystal: You are officially crazy, Tad.

Tad: Ok, maybe it's a stretch, I will give you that much.

Krystal: I am not going to do it.

Tad: You have to.

Krystal: Uh-uh!

Tad: Honey, listen to me, I can't believe I'm suggesting it -- I will give you that much, all right? But if you stop and you think about it, all right, just for one second logically, practically, it's a perfect solution.

Krystal: I do not think so, Tad.

Tad: Well, there's only one way to find out.

Krystal: And what's that?

Tad: We gather Jenny's things, we throw a couple of yours in a bag, and then -- and then we hit the road right now.

Krystal: Are you sure it's the only way?

Tad: What do you want from me? You're the only person in the house who can work the coffeemaker. But right now, to me, it seems like it's the only way.

[Music plays]

Robert: No offense, kid, but you must be new to the private eye racket, huh?

Frankie: Uh -- yeah.

Robert: Yeah.

Frankie: I'm just getting started.

Robert: I knew you were following me all along. What, did Tad hire you? It's no problem. You just cannot be safe enough nowadays, can you?

Singers: You're afraid to reveal yourself to me don't you see you're just like me

Robert: Robert Gardner -- that's me. My brother is the rat bastard that's Tad's biological father and the reason that he hates the hell out of me. Now, you can run that through the FBI, CIA, Interpol -- whatever. It'll check out.

Singers: There are scars that won't heal

Robert: You want some?

Frankie: No, thanks.

Robert: Yeah, you're right -- the salt will kill you. You can tell your colleague -- that unfriendly guy that gave me the bum's rush -- that I am no threat to the American way of life. I am just a guy who's trying to get to know his nephew.

Frankie: Hmm. I'll tell him.

Robert: Ahh. You going to drink that?

Frankie: No, you go ahead. I'm not much of a drinker.

Robert: Really? Well, a couple of years from now, it just might grow on you. Skoal.

Singer: A little bit damaged

Singers: Know we're all

Adam: Oh -- what the devil?

Krystal: Adam -- shh, shh, shh, just keep it down, ok, you're going to wake the baby.

Adam: Who let you in?

Krystal: Lucretia.

Adam: What the hell is going on here?

Krystal: What does it look like?

Tad: Krystal's moving back in.

Zach: Hey.

Annie: Hey.

Zach: You want to get something to eat or --

Annie: I can't, I have to get back to Fusion. Greenlee is dead set on inventing this great American perfume.

Zach: And once she's dead set on something --

Annie: Yeah, yeah. But, hey, thanks for the alone time with Spike.

Zach: Thanks for hooking me up with Enrico.

Annie: Mm-hmm.

Zach: The delicate --

Annie: Haut-brion?

Zach: I don't even know what that is.

Annie: Yeah -- only the 1985, though. Anything after has a bit of a bite.

Zach: Yeah.

Annie: Yeah.

Zach: And Ryan --

Annie: Be careful.

Zach: Yeah.

Annie: Yeah. See ya.

Zach: Bye.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Aidan, what's up?

Aidan: You were right -- Ryan showed.

Zach: He did, huh? Did he try anything?

Aidan: No. It's been handled.

Zach: How's Kendall?

Aidan: She was a little rattled at first, but at least nobody got hurt.

Zach: I need to talk to her.

Aidan: Uh -- I mean, you could try, but my guess is that she's fast asleep with her cell phone turned off. It's been an eventful trip.

Zach: Um -- fill me in when you get back. Thanks for the heads-up.

Aidan: I'll be in touch.

Annie: Ryan? Hey, it's Annie. Um -- I just wanted to tell you that I was thinking about you, and I hope to see you soon -- real soon. Bye.

Ryan: I've been expecting you.

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

Adam (to Tad): I will consider your desperate plea for help, but I just might make you beg for it.

Erica (to Jack): Do you think I've overpacked for prison?

Ryan (to Kendall): How could I give you up for Greenlee?
