Erica: no, no, no, no, you will not take Miranda out of school. You don't need to fly here. I'm -- I'm fine. I'm going to be fine. Bianca, I am handling this. I'm going to accept the plea bargain deal, I'm going to serve my minimal time, and when I get out of prison, I am coming to Paris, and I'm going to visit you. Yes, I promise. I will call you right after the hearing. You kiss that beautiful little Miranda for me, ok?

[Knock on door]

Erica: Oh, Miranda. I love you, too, sweetheart. Au revoir. A bientot. Josh, hi. Come on in. I was just talking to your sister Bianca.

Josh: How are you doing, Erica?

Erica: I'm fine. I -- I've been keeping busy.

Josh: I can see that.

Erica: Well, I'm packing up the room. I'm donating last year's wardrobe. And you came by to escort me to court. That is so sweet of you.

Josh: Erica, don't do it. Don't roll over and take Samuel Woods' deal.

Jack: Sam, mind if I join you?

Samuel: Well, if it ain't the one-man dream team.

[Jack chuckles]

Samuel: Want some coffee?

Jack: No, thanks. I have to be in court in a few minutes.

Samuel: What's on your mind?

Jack: Erica's plea bargain.

Samuel: Ok, what about it?

Jack: Sam, she's facing six months in prison.

Samuel: Which, in my honest opinion, is a gift.

Jack: Do you ever ask yourself if you would've prosecuted her had her name been, say, oh, Erica Smith or Erica Jones?

Samuel: No. I would've only asked, as I did ask, was there a crime committed.

[Jack scoffs]

Jack: Sam, I was a prosecutor a long time. You and I both know you don't take to court every case that crosses your desk.

Samuel: You seem to be inferring that Erica Kane needs some special treatment.

Jack: Oh, no. No, I think she got that special treatment the minute you realized that prosecuting her would help kick-start your political career.

Samuel: Let me clarify something for you.

Jack: Yeah.

Samuel: If I wanted Erica Kane to help me with my political career, I would have kissed up to her, I would've enlisted her to be my campaign manager.

[Jack laughs]

Samuel: Yeah. I wouldn't be prosecuting her and sending her to prison, Jack.

Jack: You're enjoying this, aren't you?

Samuel: No. No, I'm not.

Jack: Then rethink your position, Sam. You still have a few minutes before court. That's plenty of time to do the right thing.

Annie: You don't need this heavy thing. It's so warm out. Hmm?

Emma: Daddy!

Ryan: Hey. Wow, what a welcome!

Emma: Push me on the swings.

Ryan: Uh -- how about you go ahead, and I will -- I'll catch up with you later, ok? Go ahead.

Annie: Hey.

Ryan: Hey.

Annie: This is a nice surprise.

Ryan: Yeah, well, you know, I did a little investigating, and I heard you took the day off to spend it with Emma, and I figured I'd bump into you here someplace in the park.

Annie: Well, I needed a break. Greenlee has been working us hard. She kept us at Fusion all night last night to get to the perfect "Charm!" perfume.

Ryan: So you did it?

Annie: Yeah. Yeah, we did. So -- it -- ahem -- it feels like forever since you and I -- well, since we had that night together.

Ryan: Yeah. Well, it wasn't really all that long ago.

Annie: Well, I called you a couple times, but I got your voicemail.

Ryan's voice: We were here, right? And -- and we were happy.

Kendall's voice: We were.

Annie: I left you a message. Did you get it?

Ryan: Yeah, I did.

Annie: So, what have you been doing with yourself?

Aidan: Whew. Well, go on in, then. This is your place.

Kendall: Yeah, I know that. Would you quit bossing me around, please? My God, you're in such a foul mood.

Aidan: I'm in a foul mood? You're in a foul mood, because I told Zach.

Kendall: Yeah, and you blabbed about Ryan.

Aidan: Yeah, well, I was just doing my job.

Kendall: Well, I should've told Zach.

Aidan: What difference does it make, Kendall?

Kendall: Because I wanted to break it to Zach gently. He hates the fact that Ryan still thinks he's in love with me.

Aidan: I know that already.

Kendall: Ok, but the fact is, now Zach knows that Ryan followed me to L.A. So who knows what he'll do to Ryan?

Aidan: I told Zach, and he's fine with it -- because I told Zach that Ryan didn't stick around, and he didn't want to get you alone.

Kendall: Why are you looking at me like that?

Aidan: Why are you so paranoid?

Kendall: Ok, we need to get something straight right now.

Aidan: Do we?

Kendall: Yes, we do. After my mother's hearing, we're going back on our book tour, and whenever anything comes up, I will be the one to tell Zach what happened, understood?

Aidan: Well, understand this. We're already keeping a big enough secret. We don't need another one.

Zach: What are you doing out here? Welcome home.

Kendall: Hi. Hi. Mmm.

Greenlee: Hi, honey. Come on, what are you doing?

Kendall: Hi, hi.

Greenlee: Hi.

Zach: What's the matter? Hey. I thought you were taking care of my wife.

Samuel: You're telling me to do the right thing?

Jack: And that amuses you for some reason.

Samuel: My dad is a big fan of Dr. King, and there's a speech where King talks about politicians trying to do the right thing, and inevitably, a politician will ask, "Is this a popular move? Will I get votes if I do it?"

Jack: Sure.

Samuel: And King says that the person of conscience will ask, "Is it the right thing to do?"

Jack: Well, it's tough to argue with the Reverend King.

Samuel: Erica Kane committed a crime, Jack.

Jack: Yes, she did, and nobody denies that, including Erica.

Samuel: But she's not admitting to the fallout, the effect of it, the residuals. When Erica Kane makes an inside trade and makes a lot of money, you know what happens? People lose money. People that don't have lot of money are losing college funds, losing their life savings -- all of it, gone.

Jack: Sam, Sam, you know what? I wasn't born yesterday, and I've heard your speeches.

Samuel: This is real life, it's not a speech.

Jack: I understand you're all for the little guy. And you know what? Good for you. I'm behind you 100%, but here's what you can't do, what you must not do, and that's set yourself up to play God.

Samuel: And I would never do that. And I take that accusation seriously.

Jack: Good, you should, because I'm being serious. I see what you do, Sam. I see what you do. You look at the crime, you look at who committed it. By God, if that person is rich and powerful, whoa, the price goes up, doesn't it?

Samuel: And if they're rich and powerful, you know what? They can afford a guy like you and a guy like me.

Jack: Yeah.

Samuel: Look, I'm not prosecuting Erica Kane because of who she is. But I honestly don't think you're defending her on the merit of this case alone.

Jack: And what the hell does that mean?

Samuel: That means you're too personally involved. You don't see it. You're too close. Now, the real question you should be asking yourself is, "What if this judge doesn't think that our little plea bargain agreement is enough?" What if he thinks that's not punishment enough for Erica Kane? Then what?

Jack: Wow. Wow. So, are you telling me you know something I don't, Sam?

Samuel: No. I don't know anything you don't, just like real life. But we're about to find out.

Josh: I get why you did the press conference. You wanted to end-run Samuel Woods.

Erica: I just want to take responsibility for what I did.

Josh: Well, you're giving him exactly what he wants.

Erica: Am I? He can't milk a long trial where he casts me as the villain and himself as the people's savior. No, I don't roll over for anyone, Josh. I -- I really just feel that I'm doing what I have to do. I wish you would accept that.

Josh: I just -- I don't want you to go to prison, Erica.

Erica: And Bianca wants to fly here from Paris, and then Zach had to talk Kendall into staying in -- in L.A. My children want to protect me. I -- I love you for it.

Josh: I'm not going to talk you out of this, am I?

Erica: No. But you're already helping me by agreeing to help Zach look over my affairs while I'm gone.

Josh: Yeah, are you sure you don't want your own team of people to do that?

Erica: Well, they're going to still do what they do, but I want you to oversee it. I mean, especially my finances. I certainly don't want to risk making the same mistake I made.

Josh: Yeah, well, don't worry. I won't let that happen. So do you have any idea where they're going to be sending you?

Erica: Oh, yeah, one of those club feds. I mean, I hear they let the residents play tennis.

Josh: You don't play tennis.

Erica: There's a first time for everything. Actually, I'm thinking that I might use my time best by writing a sequel to, you know, my last book. What do you think of this? I have a title in mind. Instead of "Citizen Kane," how about "Criminal Kane"?

Josh: You know, it's not going to be all doubles tournaments, Erica.

Erica: I know. I know that. But my stay this time is going to be a lot more comfortable than my last stint behind bars. And I am determined to make the best of it.

Josh: Mm-hmm. Uh-oh. Look out, Venus and Serena. "Erica Kane exits prison, enters the U.S. Open."

Erica: It could happen. But before I enter the tennis world, I intend to backhand Samuel Woods' career right into the ground.

Josh: Yeah. I mean, of all the criminals out there, why you?

Erica: You want to know the truth? Because Mr. Samuel Woods is threatened by women like me. Powerful, successful. We get under his skin. You know what's really going to make this delicious?

Josh: What?

Erica: Well, Samuel Woods, of course, would die rather than admit this, but he is utterly attracted to me. Which makes him vulnerable. Makes him vulnerable to me.

[Knock on door]

Erica: Hello, Jack.

Jack: Erica. Hey, Josh. It's time.

Erica: To leave for court.

Jack: You ready?

Erica: Just give me a minute.

Ryan: What have I been doing with myself? I just -- I was just kind of taking care of some business.

Annie: What kind of business?

Ryan: Ah, just -- just personal business.

Annie: Personal? Sorry. Ok. Um -- I've been thinking a lot about our night together, and the next morning when you woke up and told me that you actually remembered something -- I was so happy. I was so thrilled for you, Ryan, and -- and for us. And you know, I don't anticipate any more late nights at Fusion, at least not for a while, so, you know, if you want to maybe spend some time together, maybe I can try to help you remember.

Ryan: I would like that, yeah.

Annie: So, did you remember anything else, about that memory? About -- do you remember where you were when you brushed the hair off my forehead?

[Ryan remembers brushing the hair off Kendall's forehead]

Annie: Were we in the penthouse, or -- um -- were we in the cottage at the beach?

Ryan: I -- I'm sorry, I don't -- I didn't remember anything -- anything more really. You know, maybe if I just kind of sit with it a little bit longer --

Annie: Yeah. No, yeah, that's -- I -- I totally understand.

Ryan: Ok. Thanks.

Annie: Ryan --

Ryan: Yeah?

Kendall: You want to know what's wrong? Aidan over here took his job way too seriously. Your guy needs to relax. Honestly, he was like my shadow the entire time. A very annoying shadow.

Aidan: Well, believe me, it was no joyride hanging out with you, either.

Greenlee: I'm glad you two didn't get along. Now I don't have to be jealous about you whooping it up in La-La Land.

Kendall: Oh, ok. So what is going on with my mom's hearing?

Zach: We should try to make it to the courthouse as soon as we can.

Kendall: I'm scared for her.

Zach: Well, she made up her mind.

Kendall: Yeah, and when she does that, there's no stopping her. I learned that firsthand. So, how are my boys?

Zach: Big. Probably grew two feet when you were gone.

Kendall: But didn't you tell them they can't grow without me?

Zach: They don't listen to me anymore. Rachael took them for a walk. They should be back by the time we get back from the courthouse.

Kendall: Ok.

Zach: They missed you.

Kendall: I missed them. I missed you, too.

Zach: Yeah?

Kendall: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.

Aidan: How are you feeling?

Greenlee: Fine. Fine, fine. Don't worry about me. I was cured weeks ago.

Aidan: Because you seem to be doing crazy hours at Fusion. Because every time I called you, you were busy.

Greenlee: Well, it couldn't be helped. I had to do it, and it was worth it. Kendall --

Kendall: Yes?

Greenlee: I did it. I came up with a "Charm!" fragrance.

Kendall: You did?

Zach: What? Oh, hmm.

Greenlee: Oh, that's so hard to believe, huh, that I could actually do something without you?

Kendall: No, no, that's not what I meant.

Greenlee: You got to be the big-time author in L.A. and I got to create the "Charm!" fragrance. We're even.

Kendall: All right, ok. Remind me to smell you later.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Kendall: I'll do that.

Greenlee: Nice.

Zach: Aidan told me that some fan hassled you. Tell me about that.

Greenlee: Must be hard to be so loved.

Kendall: Actually, I don't really want to talk about it. The trip was exhausting enough, and I'm just glad to put L.A. behind us.

Zach: What's the story with Ryan?

Greenlee: Yeah, did he really just show up?

Kendall: What, did you report to Greenlee, too?

Aidan: No.

Greenlee: Zach told me. So what happened?

Kendall: Well, Aidan made it very clear that Ryan should leave, so he left.

Zach: He flew all the way to L.A., turned around and left? Got to be more than that.

Greenlee: Yeah, come on. Give us the details.

Kendall: Ryan just wanted me to help him place this new memory that he had. This is a good thing, remember? I mean, we all want Ryan to get his memory back.

Greenlee: No one else could help him?

Kendall: Well, the -- the memory that he had was of me.

Zach: It's not like Ryan to give up so easily.

Greenlee: Right. I mean, he wouldn't just leave just like that.

Kendall: Well, I mean, he -- he was in one door and out the other. That was it. Aidan -- Aidan was there for the whole thing.

[Aidan recalls seeing Kendall and Ryan together in the bar]

Kendall: Right, Aidan?

Aidan: Yeah.

Greenlee: And he didn't mention anything at all, like what's going on in Pine Valley?

Kendall: No. Why, did something -- did something happen back here?

[Greenlee remembers kissing Ryan]

Kendall: Hello, Greenlee?

Greenlee: No, nothing happened. Nothing at all.

Annie: After we made love, it was like -- it was like nothing had changed. I woke up in the middle of the night because I could feel you breathing on my neck, and you were holding me the way that you used to. Did -- did you feel anything? What -- what did you feel? Ryan, I, um -- I mean, it was honestly incredible. It was really, really incredible.

Annie: Did you feel anything else?

Ryan: Um -- well, I mean, I -- I -- I just remembered a little bit, you know, so -- I was hoping that I would have more memories coming back, but --

Annie: In other words, you didn't feel anything for me?

Emma: Swing me.

Ryan: Yeah. You know, in -- in a minute, ok? Because Mommy and Daddy --

Annie: Go, go with her.

Ryan: Ok. All right. Got to take my jacket off, make sure I'm all ready to swing you. Come on, here we go. Oh, my goodness, you're heavy.

[Annie picks up Ryan's jacket and finds a plane ticket in the pocket]

Kendall: Ahem.

Greenlee: I do regret something.

Aidan: What?

Greenlee: I regret not going to L.A. with you guys.

Kendall: Yeah, you know, Aidan and I actually wanted to call you guys and have you hop on a plane to hang out with us.

Aidan: Right.

Kendall: Yeah, we did. We talked about it, but then we realized that you'd both probably be working too much and that you wouldn't be able to, so -- yeah. Well, anyway, we survived without you, and you survived without us, and we're back together -- for now. Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: I brought a sample of the "Charm!" perfume.

Kendall: Great, give me a whiff.

Aidan: Sure.

Aidan: What's up?

Zach: Give me the real story.

Aidan: About what?

Zach: About my wife.

Reporter: Erica, are you still going to plead guilty?

Second Reporter: Erica, great look!

Third Reporter: Oh, great.

Fourth Reporter: What are your feelings about fashion?

Jack: Excuse me. We need to get to court. Excuse us.

Reporter: Erica, have you consulted with Martha Stewart yet?

Jack: Ok, folks, please, we'll give an interview as soon as we can.

Josh: Are you ok?

Erica: Yes.

Jack: Look, if you want to take a minute, I'll find a room away from these people.

Erica: No, no, no, it's time. Let's just go right into the courtroom right now. Oh, well -- good afternoon, Mr. Woods. I'm ready if you are.

Samuel: Erica, you don't want to go in that courtroom.

Ryan: Ah. Emma is dying of thirst out there. She had a pretty -- pretty good workout on the monkey bars. Did you bring anything for her to drink?

Annie: Yeah.

Ryan: Great. I figured maybe we'll take her home, and then after that, we can -- you know, we can talk a little bit more.

Annie: Talk about what?

Ryan: About where I'm at and what I might need to remember a little bit more.

Annie: Maybe what you need is to take a few more trips.

Ryan: What?

Annie: Or maybe you should sign up for the whole damn book tour, as the author's groupie. Your "personal business"? You flew to L.A. and back.

Ryan: Yeah, I did.

Annie: Kendall was in L.A.

Ryan: Yes, she is the reason that I went.

Annie: So you two got together, alone?

Ryan: Yes, we did.

Greenlee: So I knew what oils I wanted, but I couldn't put together the notes. First it smelled too sweet, then it was too bitter. At our lowest point, it smelled like a pine air freshener for the car. I was ready to give up, but thank God for Zach.

Kendall: He helped?

Greenlee: Well, he met me for drinks, and I was really down, but he brought me back up.

Kendall: That's nice.

Greenlee: Yeah, he gave me a second wind, so I went back to Fusion to the perfume challenge, and we got it. Well? What do you think?

Kendall: It's nice.

Greenlee: "Nice"? It's incredible, it's perfect. It's going to sell millions.

Kendall: Ok, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Greenlee: What is wrong with you?

Kendall: You haven't told them to produce it yet, have you?

Greenlee: I told P.R. to tell our big buyers that we have our scent, and we're going to market it as soon as we can mass produce it.

Kendall: Greenlee, I wish you would've waited. I think that we can do better than this.

Greenlee: You don't want to give me anything.

Kendall: I'm just being honest.

Greenlee: You're being a bitch.

Kendall: Wait -- would you wait a minute?

Greenlee: No, you wait. I'm stuck here doing all the work while you're off in L.A. acting like some star novelist. You have Ryan and Aidan hanging all over you.

Kendall: What are you implying?

Greenlee: I'm not implying anything. I'm just telling you like it is.

Kendall: Ok, nothing happened with Ryan and nothing happened with Aidan.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Kendall: What the hell is so funny?

Greenlee: You think I'm jealous? Please. You may have Ryan panting all over you in his time warp, but Aidan went with you because he had to. He would never be unfaithful to me, especially with you.

Aidan: I told you the real story when I was on the phone with you. Ryan wasn't a problem. And Kendall just confirmed it.

Zach: So Lavery flew 3,000 miles to L.A., you told him to leave, and he just left? Come on, man.

Aidan: You don't believe me?

Zach: I think you're leaving something out, you and my wife.

Aidan: Ask Kendall. I did my job.

Zach: It has nothing to do with your job. I'm asking you as a friend. I put Kendall in your hands so you could protect you, the same way I did in the bomb shelter.

[Aidan recalls making love to Kendall in the cabin]

Zach: I trust you. I trust you to tell me the truth.

Aidan: Ryan left, and then Kendall went to meet him at another hotel bar.

Ryan: Nothing happened with Kendall.

Annie: You fly all the way to California to see her, and you have the nerve to tell me that nothing happened?

Ryan: We talked, Annie. That's all that happened.

Annie: But you went to her, Ryan! You and I spent the night together! And we made love, and then you hop on a plane to see Kendall? Oh, my God! I am such an idiot! I told myself to stay away from you, but -- but I -- I didn't, because like a fool, I'm still in love with you!

Ryan: Annie, you're not a fool.

Annie: Ryan, I thought you felt something for me that night. I mean, for a minute, you remembered. You remembered me and us and the hair, and -- oh, my God. You didn't remember me at all, did you?

Ryan: No.

Annie: You remembered her. You remembered brushing the hair off her forehead. Kendall's forehead.

Ryan: It was more than that. Annie, I -- I remembered being with Kendall in a bar in L.A.

Annie: Then why didn't you tell me that?

Ryan: The memory was vague, you know? I wasn't -- I wasn't sure what I was remembering.

Annie: Yet you were sure that you were remembering Kendall.

Ryan: I didn't want to hurt you.

Annie: Ryan, you slept with me and then left to go see Kendall! You used me, and you lied to me, and you left me, and now you're saying you don't want to hurt me?

Ryan: I'm going minute by minute here. You know, I don't -- I don't know what else to do. I -- I don't want to hurt anybody. I don't want to hurt you. Least of all, I don't want to hurt you. Ok? I'm doing everything I can to try to remember here. I -- I went to Kendall, because she was in the memory, in the city that the memory took place. So I thought if I went there and I spent a little bit of time with her there, it would help me remember more.

Annie: But it's -- it's Kendall that you're -- that you're still in love with?

Ryan: Annie --

Annie: And it's Kendall the one you probably wish you went to bed with.

Ryan: Don't.

Annie: Just say it, Ryan. You had sex with me, but you still love her. Damn you, Ryan.

Emma: Daddy, juice.

Kendall: I don't want to fight with you.

Greenlee: No, you just want to be queen of everything.

Kendall: Ok, I'm sorry I'm not psyched about your perfume. It's good.

Greenlee: Maybe your head is just still in L.A. with Ryan and his cross-country crusade to find you.

Kendall: Are you jealous of me and Ryan?

Greenlee: No.

Kendall: Ok. Listen, maybe this will make you feel better. The memory that Ryan had of me -- it wasn't just about me. It had a lot to do with you.

Greenlee: Really?

Kendall: Yeah. Come here. Ok. After Ryan left my hotel, I met him alone at the bar.

Greenlee: But you just told Zach --

Kendall: I lied, I lied, ok? If Zach finds out that Ryan got me alone, he will --

Greenlee: He'll be livid.

Kendall: Yeah.

Greenlee: But not telling him --

Kendall: Yeah, well, that's my decision.

Greenlee: Ok, so why did you go to see Ryan alone?

Kendall: Because I wanted to help him remember, so we can just stop all this craziness.

Greenlee: So, what did he remember about me?

Kendall: A fight. We met at this bar in L.A., and we fought all about you. And I was so angry at him for defending you. And that was the beginning of the end for me and Ryan.

Greenlee: Because of me?

Kendall: Yeah, pretty much.

Greenlee: Huh. Then why didn't he remember anything about me when I kissed him?

Kendall: You what? You --

Greenlee: Well, I -- I was doing what you did, trying to help him get his memory back. I did it for Annie.

Kendall: Uh-huh.

Greenlee: It's true.

Kendall: Oh, you -- come on, Greenlee, this is me you're talking to. I know you. You kissed Ryan for yourself.

Greenlee: I love Aidan.

Kendall: Yeah, I know that you do. But I think maybe deep down, a part of you wants Ryan to still love you a little.

Greenlee: How -- how do you know how I feel? Because you feel the same way about Ryan. You don't want him to completely stop loving you.

Kendall: Look at us. Look at the two of us. We have these amazing guys that are madly in love with us. And then there's Ryan.

Greenlee: Oh.

Kendall: It's like he's going through this horrible thing, he's in this bad place, and we just want to reach out to him.

Greenlee: But the way that we're going about it -- we're just asking for trouble.

Kendall: Yeah, we've already made some.

Greenlee: So what do we do?

Kendall: We make a pact. We make a pact, and we have to promise to keep it. We have to swear -- I mean, swear that we will put up boundaries with Ryan.

Greenlee: And not do anything that we have to lie about, or -- or keep from them.

Kendall: Yes. And protect the men that we love. I swear.

Greenlee: I swear.

Kendall: Ok.

Aidan: Kendall and Ryan just talked in the bar.

Zach: She told you that?

Aidan: I saw it.

Zach: And she doesn't know that you saw it?

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: That's right. Kendall is afraid of what you might do to Ryan. But you got nothing to worry about as far as he's concerned. Because she's totally committed to you. Take it from me.

Zach: And what makes you an expert on who Kendall wants, Aidan?

Jack: Samuel, why don't you want Erica to go into the courtroom?

Samuel: You think I had a change of mind after our little talk?

Erica: What little talk?

Samuel: He didn't tell you? He tracked me down just before I came in here and tried to renegotiate our whole deal.

Erica: Jack, I certainly wish that you would have talked to me about that first.

Jack: Well, it doesn't matter. It turned out to be nothing but a waste of time.

Josh: Why don't we just get this over with?

Samuel: Listen, the reason you don't want to go in there now -- the judge is finishing with another case, and the defendant is being difficult. I don't want you to see that.

Woman: I will not quiet down! You aren't hearing me! I didn't do a damn thing!

Erica: Another woman? Well, I wonder if she's being railroaded by her prosecutor.

Jack: Whoa, honey.

Woman: My man said he was going into the bank to get some money. He told me to keep the car running because he wasn't going to be long!

Judge: I heard your story, Ms. Morales. Your sentence still stands.

Ms. Morales: The bastard didn't tell me he was going to get other people's money, and use a gun to do it!

Judge: You will serve a term of no less than 10 years and no more than 20 years in the federal penitentiary.

Ms. Morales: I was set up! My only crime was not dumping the jerk a long time ago!

Lawyer: Mrs. Morales, you're making this more difficult for yourself.

Ms. Morales: You call yourself a lawyer? You haven't done squat for me.

Judge: Take her into custody.

Ms. Morales: Don't you sic your muscle on me! Get out of my way! Oh, my God. You're Erica Kane. I love you. I have watched every single "New Beginnings" show. You are so inspiring.

Erica: Thank you, Ms. --

Ms. Morales: Call me Carmen. One of you goons have a pen so she can sign my arm?

Judge: Get her out of here.

Erica: Good luck, Carmen.

Carmen: I'm your biggest fan!

Judge: Well, I see that we have a celebrity on the docket. Call it, Fred.

Fred: United States vs. Erica Kane.

[Children playing]

Ryan: Um -- Emma and her friends are going to do a little dance and she wants us to watch, so let's -- ok, honey, go ahead! We're watching!

Children: There was a farmer had a dog and Bingo was his name-o

Ryan: I'm really sorry, Annie.

Children: B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O

Annie: I told everybody that we had this breakthrough. That you remembered me. Oh. The whole world thinks that we are on our way to getting back together and everything is just great.

Ryan: I honestly wish that I had remembered us.

Annie: No, you don't.

Children: B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O

Annie: That's great, sweetheart.

Children: And Bingo was his name-o

Annie: So what's next on this path of getting your life back? What, are you going to have sex with Greenlee?

Ryan: Annie, you have every right to be angry.

Annie: Or are you going to go for the gold and try to get Kendall in bed?

Ryan: Please, stop.

Annie: Stop what? I haven't done anything except try to be a loyal, patient, giving wife --

Emma: Mommy, stop yelling at Daddy.

Ryan: Oh, hey, it's -- it's ok, honey. It's -- it's ok. It's all right.

Aidan: Listen, I get that you're angry, Zach, and you have good reason. But I'm not the problem.

Kendall: Ok, the perfume testing is over.

Greenlee: I want to go home, so I can have you all to myself.

Aidan: Oh, sounds good to me, babe.

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

[Greenlee mouths words]

[Kendall mouths words]

Greenlee: All right, let's get out of here.

Aidan: Good luck at your mum's hearing.

Kendall: Thank you.

Greenlee: Oh, give my best to Erica. What? I mean it -- sort of.

Kendall: Yeah, ok. Bye, guys. We should get to the courthouse.

Zach: Kendall?

Kendall: What?

Zach: If there's something you want to tell me, anything, you can.

Ryan: Your mommy and daddy were just having a little bit of a disagreement, but that's -- that's ok.

Annie: Yeah, sometimes, people just have different feelings on things, that's all.

Ryan: Yeah, but -- but your mommy and daddy are going to work it out.

Emma: Can Daddy come over for pizza tonight with Kathy and Julia?

Ryan: Oh, that -- that sounds -- that sounds great, but I -- um -- not tonight, but soon, ok? You know what? Why don't you go and finish your dance? And we'll watch from here, ok? Go on. Off you go.

Annie: I don't want Emma hurt in all this.

Ryan: Neither do I.

Annie: I'm willing to do things together as a family, for Emma.

Ryan: Ok.

Annie: But don't ever think about touching me again.

Greenlee: I couldn't wait until we got home do that.

Aidan: Well, I'm glad you didn't. Because I missed you madly.

Greenlee: Really?

Aidan: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: Are you saying I'm more fun than Mrs. Raunchy Romance Writer?

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: I would -- I would say that. I am saying that.

[Greenlee and Aidan chuckle]

Greenlee: I want all the gory details about Kendall, and what a pain in the butt she was.

Aidan: There were some times when we got along.

Greenlee: Really?

Aidan: Yeah.

Greenlee: Yeah? Hmm?

Aidan: Actually, she gave me some advice about you.

Greenlee: What did she say?

Aidan: She said that if I keep you safe, and I make you laugh a lot, that you'd be happy.

Greenlee: Yeah? And what else did she say?

Aidan: She said that when you're bored, you like to stir things up.

Greenlee: Hmm.

Aidan: Is that true?

Greenlee: Well, I was bored while you were away.

Aidan: You were?

Greenlee: Yeah.

Aidan: And did you stir up some trouble?

Greenlee: Oh, yeah.

Aidan: Well? What was it?

Greenlee: I stirred up some fabulous perfume.

Aidan: Well, how about we go home, and we stir up some more trouble in the bedroom?

Greenlee: I'm there. I'm there.

Kendall: Ryan showed up, he -- he stayed for a minute, and then he left. I mean, how many times do I have to say it for you to believe me? What?

Zach: We need to get to the courthouse.

Judge: Good afternoon, counselors.

Jack: Good afternoon, your honor.

Judge: Does the government have a preference for a trial date?

Samuel: We're pleased to advise that the government and the defendant have reached a plea bargaining agreement, your honor.

Judge: Is that correct, counselor?

Jack: Yes, your honor, it is.

Judge: What's the deal?

Samuel: The government has agreed to reduce the charge in the indictment. In return, the defendant will plead guilty to a lesser charge put forward in count one of the indictment. The United States recommends a two-year sentence, six months served, 18 months suspended. The defendant is to pay a fine of $5 million and perform two years community service.

Judge: These are very serious charges.

Samuel: Yes, your honor, they are.

Judge: And your office is recommending such a short sentence?

Samuel: Yes, your honor.

Judge: Mr. Woods, are you out of your mind? The defendant deserves a far harsher punishment than that.

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

Aidan (to Ryan): You stay away from these women. Back off.

Adam (to Krystal): I'm the only husband you want.

Jack (to Erica): You are your last hope.

Tad (to Jesse): This is not good news.
