Erica: Ok, Carmen, listen to me. You should be thinking of this as a kind of adventure. A kind of a -- a cleansing time-out.

Carmen: Huh?

Erica: You should be visualizing new personal growth for yourself. Visualize new goals.

Carmen: My goal is to stab Mando Ortiz straight through the heart. Why are you heading to federal prison with me, instead of jumping on a first-class flight to Rio right now?

Erica: Because if I disappeared, I could never come back.

Carmen: So? Why don't you just reappear somewhere else? Somewhere the Feds can't catch you. Fiji, Bora Bora -- like that.

Erica: Because when this is over, I want my life back.

Carmen: Oh. You can start your show anywhere.

Erica: Oh, honey, hi.

Kendall: Oh, God, I thought I could handle this, but I can't. I can't. Mom, this -- this is not happening. I can't handle this right now.

Carmen: Kendall Hart? In person?

Kendall: Excuse me?

Erica: Oh, honey, this is -- this is my --

Carmen: Cellmate, and compadre. And don't -- I am Carmen Morales. And don't you worry about Mama. Sugar's got her back.

Kendall: "Sugar"?

Erica: Is Carmen's nickname.

Zach: Huh. How are you doing?

Erica: Well, you know how I'm doing. I'm going to be perfectly fine.

Kendall: Yeah, it's an adventure, right?

Carmen: That's what she told me. Loved your book, by the way. Hot, hot, hot. But you really didn't know how to end it, did you?

Kendall: Mom, I don't know what I'm going to do without you.

Erica: You're going to do what you always do. You're going to be the successful, strong woman that you are.

Zach: I keep telling her the same thing.

Erica: And that's good, and she should listen to you. Kendall's lucky to have you.

Zach: Did you just say that?

Erica: I did. I can't believe that I did, but I -- I did. And I'm sure that Kendall thinks that, too. I know she does. I mean, especially now that her plate is so full.

Greenlee: What can you do for Erica at the prison? Decorate her cell?

Jack: Greenlee, I appreciate the ride to the airport, but could we not do this?

Greenlee: Ok. Ok, you're right. I mean, who am I to talk? I've been exactly where you are now.

Jack: Which is?

Greenlee: Can't hang on to somebody you love, can't let go of them, either.

Jack: And for you, that would be Ryan.

Greenlee: My former obsession.

Jack: "Former"? "Former" being the operative word here, right?

Angie: Still no answer. Where is Jesse? Where -- where is Tad? Why haven't we heard anything?

Krystal: It hasn't been that long.

Angie: Something is wrong, Krystal, I can feel it.

Krystal: That is just your fear talking. Don't let that take control.

Angie: What if Frankie got his father back only to lose him again?

Krystal: Frankie and Jesse have a lot of years ahead of them. The Hubbards are a family again.

Angie: We were --

Krystal: All right --

Angie: For a minute.

Krystal: Hush. Just hush. Everything's going to be fine. Tad and Jesse are in this as a team, and together, they can't be beat.

Angie: Tad and Jesse, our heroes -- who think they can take on anything.

Jesse: You shoot me, you come up empty after all these years. A failure! A waste!

Robert: [Distorted voice] Don't push it.

Jesse: Go ahead. Do it. Pull the trigger. I win.

Frankie: Now.

Adam: Colby?

Colby: Daddy!

Tad: No, they couldn't. Colby --

Adam: No. Colby, no! Colby? Colby? No. Colby.

Jesse: Frankie, thank God.

Adam: No, no.

Frankie: Hey, back up, back up. You need to give her some air.

Adam: Don't -- don't tell me what to do. It's your fault, all of you --

Tad: Adam, he's a doctor! Let him look at her.

Jesse: Everybody, just keep down, ok?

Robert: Everyone all right here?

Jesse: What the hell --

Tad: What are you doing here?

[Colby groans]

Colby: Ow.

Tad: Colby?

Adam: Colby -- Colby, are you all right?

Colby: Oh, I just -- I fell and hit my head.

Adam: Oh --

Tad: I asked you a question.

Frankie: You weren't shot?

Colby: No.

Adam: But what happened?

Robert: I think you'll find the answer right over there.

Jesse: I don't understand.

Robert: I wasn't sure we'd get here in time.

Tad: "We"?

Robert: You and Chandler -- I followed you.

Adam: Who is this man? What are you talking about?

Tad: My Uncle Robert. He's Ray Gardner's brother.

Adam: Ray -- Ray Gardner? Your father?

Jesse: Why were you following them?

Robert: It's my job.

Jesse: FBI?

Robert: The man who was looking for you is right over there, Jesse.

Greenlee: Ryan and I have been over for eons. I've got Aidan now. My -- my -- my life is perfect, I'm happy.

Jack: Hmm.

Greenlee: Besides, Ryan is married to one woman and deeply in love with another. I'm not even in the running -- which, I have to admit, I find odd.

Jack: Not so odd that you would ruin your perfect life by trying to do anything about that, though, right?

Greenlee: You know what? I don't care.

Jack: Yeah. I think maybe you've run the Ryan relay once too often.

Greenlee: What is all this Ryan talk?

Jack: You were the one that brought him up.

Greenlee: Only to commiserate about Erica.

Jack: And that in itself is extremely alarming.

Greenlee: "Alarming"? I'm trying to be supportive.

Jack: Right -- Erica and I have a lifelong attachment, ok? But if you start looking at Ryan with "forever" in mind, I think you're opening yourself up for a lot of fresh hurt.

Greenlee: We're just friends, ok? My comparison was off. You and Erica have a soul mate thing going on. I mean, I thought Ryan and I -- but we don't, so who cares? Not this former addict. Not in a serious way.

Jack: Ok. Now, if that's the truth, it's very reassuring.

Greenlee: So, what -- what is it that you're doing at the prison? You're going to bribe the warden to name Erica goddess of cellblock A or something?

Jack: No, no, Greenlee, I'm going to have a discussion with the warden and try to explain who Erica really is.

Greenlee: And who is she, really, Dad? The real Erica, according to you?

Jack: Well, there's a thousand ways I could answer that question, but I think the answer that's in play right now is she's a part of me.

Erica: What I mean is, Kendall -- Kendall could just overextend herself. She could make herself sick. I mean, you remember her bout with the supposed stomach flu. I mean, that really could've been serious.

Kendall: But, Mom, I'm fine now. I'm -- I was very lucky. I -- I know I should've taken better care of myself. I'm sorry.

Erica: No, don't be sorry, be smart.

Zach: Why do I feel like you guys are talking in code?

Kendall: It's -- it's just a mother/daughter thing. Kind of like shorthand.

Carmen: Sounds like code to me, too.

Zach: See?

Erica: Well, I do just have a few minutes. I would very much appreciate a few minutes with my daughter alone -- is that ok?

Zach: No, whatever you need.

Erica: Thank you.

Zach: Come on, Sugar. Give them some time. What's your name again?

Carmen: Carmen Morales, big guy. You wouldn't make your girl drive your getaway car, would you?

Kendall: Ok, you're obviously trying to tell me something, Mother. I get it now.

Erica: Do you? Because I really hope you do. I meant what I said. You have a very full plate. You are overextended. You are married to a great guy, and you don't need two extra men.

Greenlee: Does Erica have any idea how lucky she is?

Jack: Hmm.

Greenlee: You are so devoted to her. You always will be, wherever she goes, whatever she does.

Kendall: I do not have two extra men.

Erica: Kendall, you thought that the stomach flu could've been morning sickness and that Aidan was the father.

Kendall: Mother, but I'm not pregnant, ok? So can we please just forget about that one-time mistake?

Erica: Can we? I hope so. Can we now, now that Zach has hired Aidan to trail you around?

Kendall: There is nothing going on between Aidan and me.

Erica: Except for one tiny spark. Don't deny it. Just don't give in to it.

Kendall: I don't intend to.

Erica: Well, good. Does that mean there is one?

Kendall: No, no, of course not.

Erica: Listen to me, Kendall. I want you to do this mental exercise. Whenever you see Aidan, I want you to ignore everything sexy about him. Just visualize something bland. A potted palm.

[Kendall chuckles]

Kendall: A potted palm? Hmm.

Erica: In a hotel lobby, just blending into the background.

Kendall: Ok. Aidan, a plant. I'm sorry, that's funny.

Erica: Look, visualization is a very powerful tool, a very powerful weapon. Believe me, I know. I want you to visualize Ryan back with his wife.

Kendall: Ok, well, that's kind of hard to do since Ryan doesn't remember who Annie is.

Erica: Then visualize him with somebody else. A model, a movie star.

Kendall: You?

Erica: No.

Kendall: Greenlee?

Erica: Anyone but you.

Kendall: Ok. Mom, I -- I thought that I should try to help Ryan remember. I mean, he is Spike's father, after all.

Erica: Well, then help him remember Spike. But any other aspect of Ryan's life is none of your concern. You have a magnificent marriage. Don't sabotage it.

Kendall: No, I won't. You know, you used to actually be fond of Ryan.

Erica: I'm very fond of Ryan. I just don't want to see him upend your life.

Kendall: Well, I can promise you I won't let that happen.

Erica: Ok.

Kendall: Ok.

Erica: That's a good girl.

Kendall: Ok.

Erica: Great. All right, now, go get Zach, because I need to talk to him, too.

Kendall: Not about this?

Erica: You think I'm out of my mind?

Kendall: Ok.

Zach: What?

Kendall: She requests you.

Zach: Oh.

[Kendall chuckles]

Carmen: I really did like your book.

Kendall: Yeah, yeah, I know. Except the ending. Who are you again?

Carmen: Carmen Morales.

Kendall: Right. So, Carmen Morales doesn't like happy endings?

Carmen: Life just never works out that way.

Kendall: Sometimes it does.

Carmen: Hmm, for a minute, and then it all blows up in your face.

Kendall: Well, I hope you're wrong this time.

Carmen: I'm always right.

Kendall: So why are you in custody?

Carmen: I let myself forget for a minute that love was one butt-kicking trap.

Erica: Zach, I am trusting you with the most precious things in my life.

Zach: Your daughter's in good hands.

Erica: They are big, strong hands, and I know that, and I believe you. I didn't always believe in you, but I do now.

Zach: Oh, good, good. And who knows, maybe I'll double your money.

Erica: Oh, I don't want you to think so much about my money.

Zach: Not thinking about your money and your finances is what got you here in the first place, isn't it?

Erica: Ah, that's a very good point.

Zach: Mm-hmm.

Erica: However, Josh can pick up the slack, and so can Bianca. I mean, we just spoke this evening. And if Kendall seems strained in any way, please, I want you to call --

Zach: I will.

Erica: You're Kendall's knight in shining armor. You know that, don't you?

Zach: No, honey, my armor was never shiny. And the little armor I had is in storage now. I don't need it with my lady.

Frankie: Hey.

Colby: "Hey" yourself.

Frankie: So you tripped and fell, huh?

Colby: Yeah.

Frankie: You did good.

Colby: Yeah, well, you did better.

Frankie: We made it. We're alive.

Colby: Thank you.

Frankie: Yeah. No thanks to him.

Robert: His name is Rafael Guzman, aka Papel.

Adam: Who the hell is that?

Jesse: Leader of a drug cartel.

Robert: He's one of the biggest and nastiest on the eastern seaboard. We've been chasing this guy 25 years. Never had a picture. Never had a positive ID until you came back.

Tad: He checks out.

Jesse: FBI?

Robert: Tad, would you like to take a look at my badge --

Tad: Why the hell didn't you tell me who you were?

Robert: Well, I was on a job, undercover. I didn't think that'd be appropriate.

Adam: Well, as far as I'm concerned, I am deeply in your debt.

Robert: Well, thank you.

Adam: I am Adam Chandler.

Robert: Of course. It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Chandler.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Jesse: Listen, can you get back to Rafael? Are you sure -- are you sure this is the guy?

Robert: There's no doubt in my mind. The bureau owes you a big debt of gratitude, Jesse. He wanted you badly. You have any idea why?

Jesse: No, that's just it. I never knew what he wanted.

Robert: Hmm. Well, whatever it was, it died with him.

Jesse: Hey, man.

Frankie: Hey.

Jesse: Oh -- you sure you're ok, man?

Frankie: Yeah, I'm good. How about you, Dad?

Jesse: I don't know.

Frankie: Does this mean -- this is over, right?

Jesse: Yeah. Anybody got a phone?

Tad: Yeah.

[Phone rings]

Angie: Hello?

Jesse: Angela?

Angie: Oh --

Krystal: Jesse?

Jesse: Yeah.

Krystal: Is everything ok?

Jesse: Yeah, we're -- we're all fine. We're all fine. Can I speak to Angie, please?

Krystal: She's right here.

Angie: Jesse?

Jesse: Baby. We're coming home. I got your boy. We're coming home.

Angie: I love you so much.

Jesse: Me, too. I love you. Love you -- here's your boy. Here's Frankie.

Frankie: Hey, Ma.

Angie: Hi.

Colby: Hey, Dad, are you ok?

Adam: Oh, I'm fine, fine.

Colby: You look a little pale. Are you sure?

Adam: I was worried about you, that's why. I'm -- I'm fine. Here, put this on. Chilly in here.

Colby: Mm-hmm.

Robert: You still look surprised, Tad.

Tad: I am.

Robert: A Gardner on the side of the law -- who'd have thought?

Tad: Lucky for us.

Robert: Yeah. Lucky for you.

[Helicopter flies]

Derek: Are you Agent Gardner?

Robert: I am.

Derek: Derek Frye. Your bureau chief filled me in on the operation.

Robert: Yeah.

Derek: Quite a situation here.

Robert: Oh, it got a little hairy there toward the end.

Derek: Mm-hmm. My God. It's really him.

Zach: Is this really necessary?

Guard: Regulations, sir.

Zach: Yeah? What do you think, these two ladies are going to overpower a van full of cops?

Carmen: If anyone could --

Zach: Come on, let me talk to somebody else, somebody with a bigger gun. A supervisor, anybody.

Erica: Zach, really, there's no need for concern, because they're perfectly comfortable. I've worn jewelry that's less comfortable than -- actually, I'm envisioning a new bracelet design here.

Carmen: The Erica cuff -- I totally see it.

Kendall: Lovely.

Zach: Safe trip.

Erica: Remember what I said.

Kendall: Every syllable.

Erica: Ok.

Guard: Sorry, ladies, but it's time.

Erica: Ok.

Carmen: All right, all right.

Erica: Ahem. I'll be fine.

Jack: Well, that van will be picking Erica up to take her to prison any minute.

Greenlee: Well, don't worry, Dad, ok? I called the airline. You're going to be at the prison hours before the van arrives. You'll charm the warden within an inch of his life.

Jack: Yeah, her life, as it turns out.

Greenlee: Ooh. Even better. Erica will get caviar blinis for breakfast instead of the standard prison cuisine. Pilates, instead of prison-yard strolls.

Jack: Look, maybe there's some humor in all this. I'm sure there is, in fact. But I'm just not in a place where I can see it, you know, ok?

Greenlee: Betcha Erica would. Well, you know, she and I have our issues, but I got to hand it to that woman. She's got bounce.

Jack: "Bounce"?

Greenlee: Bounce. You -- you push her down, and she springs right back.

Jack: Oh.

Greenlee: Bounce.

Jack: Hmm.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Jack: I just want to get this warden to see that Erica has a lot to offer, even at this -- maybe -- maybe especially at this prison.

Greenlee: Do they have seaweed wraps in fru-fru prison?

Jack: Would you stop with the "fru-fru" prison thing? Greenlee, it's not a resort, ok?

Greenlee: I'm sorry. I'm trying to be upbeat, and it's coming out like I don't care. I'm not much of a comfort, am I?

Jack: I'm not the one that needs comforting today.

Greenlee: Seems to me you are.

Krystal: The bunny song the bunny song we just sung the bunny song the bunny song the bunny song sleepy time now won't be long. Winnie -- Winnie, yeah, thanks for putting me on speaker phone. Yeah. Call me anytime she wakes up, ok? Thank you. You ok?

Angie: That song -- Jesse used to sing it to Frankie. I mean, he would hold him and sing it for hours.

Krystal: Oh. Jesse was a good daddy. He still is.

Angie: Is it Easter yet? Did -- did I miss it?

Krystal: Uh -- I think Easter got by us this year.

Angie: Jesse and I used to dye eggs and hide them for Frankie to find, and he'd get so excited.

Krystal: Frankie or Jesse?

[Angie and Krystal chuckle]

Angie: I hardly know who had the most fun. Nobody had ever done that for Jesse, so I --

Krystal: Yeah. He got to be a kid.

Angie: I kept it up after Jesse was gone. Frankie -- he would hunt those eggs down. And every year, he would pick up the prettiest one and he'd say, "Daddy brought this one from heaven."

Krystal: Well, who needs egg hunts this Easter? Frankie got his daddy from heaven this year.

Angie: He came back to us.

Krystal: This time, for good.

[Jesse sighs]

Jesse: It's still hard to believe.

Tad: Yeah. A Gardner on the right side of the law. Who would've thunk it?

Jesse: You sound disappointed.

Tad: What the hell do I know?

Jesse: Hmm. Where the hell were you guys?

Tad: Uh -- yeah, well, there was the small matter of Adam's heart attack! And he drove us both off the road and nearly got us killed.

Colby: Hey, you need to go to the hospital now.

Adam: No! Honey, I'm fine now. I'm fine. A little stressed, that's all.

Colby: Frankie?

Frankie: Yeah?

Colby: Will you please check out my dad? I think he had a heart attack.

Adam: No, I did not -- I did not have a heart attack.

Frankie: Well, Mr. Chandler, could you describe the symptoms?

Adam: No, I'm not going to describe the symptoms because there aren't any symptoms. They're gone now. Excuse me.

Colby: Whew.

Frankie: Is he always this friendly?

Colby: He was just scared.

Frankie: That makes three of us.

Derek: Officer Hubbard --

Jesse: Whoa. I haven't heard that in a while. Derek Frye? You're the chief of police.

Derek: It's a pleasure to meet you.

Jesse: Wow.

Derek: You're kind of a legend back at the station. A lot of the guys still remember you.

Jesse: It's been such a long time.

Derek: I'm going to need to take a statement about all of this.

Jesse: Absolutely.

Derek: At your convenience.

Jesse: Thank you. Thank you.

Derek: It's good to have you back with us.

Jesse: Thank you, man. I want to go home. Agent Gardner?

Robert: Robert. I figure we can be friends now, right?

Jesse: Yeah. This guy, this Rafael --

Robert: Yes?

Jesse: You asked me if he wanted to know something, and I told you I didn't know.

Robert: That's right. Why, are -- are you remembering something now?

Jesse: Well, nothing specific, but whatever it was, it had to be personal. I mean, I remember talking to him. I could hear it in his voice before the gunfire -- he wanted more than just information.

Robert: Well, like I said, it's too late to find out now.

Jesse: So you been on the case 25 years now, and you still have no clue why this guy snatched me from the hospital morgue, beat me, tortured me half to death, had a hole dug in the ground?

Robert: He was a clever man, Papel.

Jesse: Yeah. Threatened my wife, my kid, grabbed my kid and Colby, obliterated 20 years of my life, and you don't know any of that? And you're FBI?

Robert: We got a dossier on Papel that's as thick as a phone book. We know how many tons of cocaine he moved from South America stateside, how many of his rivals he murdered including people that just looked at him cross-eyed, one of whom was John Remington and -- we think -- his mother.

Tad: When did this happen?

Derek: Earlier tonight. Angie and Krystal were there, but it was already too late.

Robert: Papel was a criminal genius. The guy -- he had a gift, but we got him.

[Jesse walks away]

Robert: Yeah, it was personal, Jesse -- very personal.

Angie: Hey, Krystal, have you got any rosemary?

Krystal: Uh -- yeah. The spice rack, next to the stove.

Angie: Ok.

Krystal: Hey, I don't even know how you could hold a spoon. I am just too excited to even run tap water.

Angie: Jesse -- that's how. Jesse, whatever he wants.

[Angie chuckles]

Angie: Oh, my God. Oh, my God! Oh, baby!

[Frankie chuckles]

Frankie: Oh!

Angie: My baby! Oh, sweetheart.

Krystal: Oh! Oh, honey, your head.

Colby: Oh.

Krystal: It must hurt.

Colby: No, I'm fine. I just feel like I got hit over the head with a log --

Krystal: Oh.

Colby: But it's not bad enough for the emergency room.

Krystal: Yeah?

Colby: Frankie tripped me.

Frankie: Oh, she's not very coordinated.

Angie: You two are so brave.

Colby: No, I was not brave at all.

Frankie: Don't believe her. She was a klutz, but she's reasonably tough.

Colby: This again? I am not a klutz.

Angie: Take the compliment, scratch the dig.

Krystal: You -- sit.

Adam: I beg your pardon?

Krystal: I said plunk your fanny right down here. Tad called, he said you were close to a heart attack. Come on.

Adam: Oh, well, Tad, as usual, is full of it.

Krystal: I said sit. Now, here, put your feet up, got your jacket off. You can have some water, or I'm going to have to personally hogtie you -- is that what you want?

Adam: No, I don't think so.

[Krystal sighs]

Carmen: I like your family.

Erica: Thank you. So do I.

Carmen: Must be nice, have all those people in your corner?

Erica: You have family?

Carmen: Nah. Daddy left when I was 2, and Mom -- well, she and me don't get along so good. I thought Mando was family -- till he broke my heart.

Erica: Your bank robber boyfriend?

Carmen: FiancÚ -- we were engaged. He was going to buy me the ring later when he had some money. Well, he has money now, the bastard.

Erica: Shh, shh, shh, shh.

Carmen: You've been in love, right?

Erica: Yes, I have, a few times.

Carmen: There's always that one you can't forget, the one you think is going to answer all your questions, have everything make sense? Well, Mando was that one for me, and he broke my heart, you know?

Erica: Yeah, I think I do.

Greenlee: Hey.

Jack: Huh?

Greenlee: Try not to worry too much about Erica, ok? Fru-fru prison will be a cinch for her.

Jack: Oh, yeah, just like it would be for you.

Greenlee: Are you comparing me to Erica?

Jack: Well, there are certain similarities.

Greenlee: That is not nice.

[Jack sighs]

Greenlee: Besides, that woman has half the planet worshipping at her tiny little feet. My feet are tiny, but where are all my worshippers? How fair is that?

Jack: Well, keep at it -- maybe someday.

Greenlee: What, you think I need global adoration?

Jack: I think you'd like nothing better.

Greenlee: I'll never admit to that.

Jack: We'll keep it just between us.

[Greenlee chuckles]

Zach: You don't need to do this.

Kendall: I said rose petals, not eucalyptus leaves. Please, can you get it right -- no, hey -- Zach, no. Why did you do that?

Zach: I don't want you to get a nosebleed.

Kendall: Yeah, well, that stupid florist is going to be the one with the nosebleed. I just want to do something nice for you.

Zach: We can have a bath together -- that's nice.

Kendall: It is nice, but I wanted to do something even nicer, special.

Zach: What'd your mom say?

Kendall: My mom said what she always says lately -- that you're the best thing that's ever happened to me.

Zach: She is a smart woman.

Kendall: Yeah. I just want to make you happy.

Zach: I am happy.

Kendall: Ok. But -- I mean, I'm -- I'm a big pain in the butt, I really am --

Zach: Yeah.

Kendall: Yeah, I am, and -- and I'm secretive.

Zach: Hang on a sec.

Kendall: What?

Zach: You told me about Ryan.

Kendall: Yeah, eventually.

Zach: Mm-hmm. And the sky didn't fall on your head, I didn't have his legs broken, so you need to trust me.

Kendall: Ok. Well, I need you to love me.

Zach: Yeah?

Kendall: Yeah.

Zach: I will. We got a fire going, a couple of sandwiches, drinks.

Kendall: A couple of sandwiches and drinks? No, I mean -- love me. Mm-hmm.

Zach: Yeah?

Kendall: Yeah.

Zach: Yeah?

[Kendall chuckles]

Zach: You ready for this?

Kendall: Uh-huh, I'm ready.

Zach: You're welcome.

[Kendall squeals]

Krystal: Ok.

Adam: Oh, ho, ho.

Krystal: Oh --

Adam: Oh, well, as much as I love herbal tea, um, could somebody bring me a stiff drink, no ice?

Colby: Ooh, I'll take one, too.

Krystal: Forget it.

Frankie: Actually, that makes three of us, but Colby and Adam get no alcohol.

Adam: Speak for yourself.

Angie: You do need to watch that, Adam.

Adam: This -- is this a clinic? I'm not a patient. We have had one hell of a night, folks. Somebody please bring me a single malt scotch, or do I have to go out and get it myself?

Angie: What, and miss dinner?

Adam: What? I'm invited to dinner?

Krystal: Of course, you are -- all the spicy chicken you can eat.

Adam: Oh.

Krystal: That's your reward for rescuing the kids.

Angie: But no mac and cheese for you -- you're stuck with the string beans.

Adam: Is this a nursing home?

Angie: No -- a home where people are lucky to be alive. Tonight could have turned out totally different. We could've lost so much. Hey, guys. Welcome home, baby. Welcome home for good. It is for good, right?

Jesse: You know, I didn't believe this day would ever come. Maybe if I had believed just a little more, I -- oh.

Angie: It took all your strength to stay alive, alone and -- and running, nowhere to hide. Thank you so much for fighting so hard to live. Thank you for saving the love of my life.

Jesse: Oh. Hey. Your boy Tad over there -- he needs a little bit of that praise, too. He deserves it.

Tad: No, no, no, no, no, no.

Angie: Tad -- I'm sorry, I just, you know --

Tad: Oh, don't you worry about me, baby. I got my best friend back. All's right with the world.

Krystal: I need a tissue, honey. I'm going to lose it.

Colby: Oh, I'll go grab some.

Krystal: Oh, I'm just so glad you're ok.

Jesse: Hey.

Frankie: Huh?

Jesse: What's say we hit that sporting goods store tomorrow, you know, pick up some baseball gear, hit some balls?

Frankie: Ah.

Jesse: Rollerblade, you roller-- golf? You golf? I'll tell you what -- the works.

Frankie: Well, it sounds like some remedial athletic training, huh?

Jesse: How about remedial father/son fun?

Frankie: Yeah, man.

Jesse: You know how long it's been since I've had "fun"?


Jesse: So many presidents ago.

[Angie laughs]

Jesse: Whole lot of presidents.

Colby: Hey, you guys, why is Robert just standing outside?

Robert: There may be a lingering bit of suspicion, but I'll be able to make that go away. I am a hero, after all.

[Rob holds up Mrs. Remington's necklace]

Angie: Why is Robert still standing out there?

Krystal: He's probably deciding whether or not to ring the doorbell. Well, we know he is your uncle, we know he is with the FBI. What's the next hurdle?

Tad: Well, nothing would surprise me at this point. What do you think?

Frankie: William Sherman, he was a maniac -- he burned Atlanta to the ground -- but his brother was a quiet guy who wrote progressive legislation.

Colby: The Sherman Antitrust Act? He had a brother, General Torch? Who knew?

Krystal: Well, good brother/bad brother -- we've seen that happen before.

[Knock on door]

Tad: Excuse me.

Robert: Am I intruding?

Tad: No. Come on in.

Robert: Hmm, thank you.

Kendall: So are you sure you didn't miss the rose petals?

Zach: Rose petals?

Kendall: Yeah.

Zach: Mrs. Slater?

Kendall: Mr. Slater?

Zach: I have a confession to make.

Kendall: Oh, yeah?

Zach: I prefer tulips.

Kendall: You do?

Zach: I do.

Kendall: Ok, well, then --

Zach: You're going to what?

Kendall: I'll help you with that.

Zach: Yeah?

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Zach: I'm sure you could help me with it.

[Kendall chuckles]

Kendall: Take me.

Zach: Whoa-oh!

Greenlee: Dad? I meant what I said about Erica.

Jack: Did you?

Greenlee: Yes.

Jack: All of it?

Greenlee: The good stuff. She can master anything. I mean, give her a few days, she's going to have that whole prison eating out of her hand.

Jack: I'll tell her you said that.

Greenlee: No, don't, don't, don't. She'll take it the wrong way.

Jack: Oh, don't be so sure. She might be flattered.

Greenlee: Or insulted -- you never know. The point is, Dad, she'll be out of there in six months, and back to driving you crazy again.

Jack: Come here. Thanks. Be careful going home.

Greenlee: I will. I'll see you.

[Car door closes]

Carmen: I don't have a life without Mando. I love him, I hate him.

Erica: You want to kill him.

Carmen: Is that so wrong?

[Erica gasps as the van veers off to the side, tires screeching. With Erica and Carmen leaning to one side, the driver frantically tries to pump the useless breaks, until the prison van crashes.]

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

Annie (to Greenlee): You told him to fake it, didn't you?

Kendall: Something's wrong, Zach -- I can feel it.

Erica: I'm not going anywhere with you.

Carmen: Get up.

Erica: No.

Carmen: You're breaking my heart here, Erica, I really don't want to have to shoot you.
