[Truck door closes]

Erica: Put the gun away, Carmen!

Carmen: Think fast, Erica. Get us out of this.

[Back truck door opens]

Jake: What the --

Carmen: Make it good or there's no new beginning for you.

Kendall: Oh, it's you. I keep expecting for my mom to walk through the door.

Zach: There's still no word, huh?

Kendall: Hmm.

Zach: Hi.

Kendall: Hi. No, she's still handcuffed to some crazy criminal. I just had a drink with Greenlee to calm my nerves.

Zach: They'll find her.

Kendall: Yeah. So where are you coming from so late?

Zach: I took Ryan on a field trip.

[Ryan yells as he stands at the site of his motorcycle crash]

Greenlee: Ryan remembers Kendall, he remembers me. Hell, he remembers the way he likes his toast, but you? Nothing -- maybe because you're not so special, maybe because there's nothing about you worth remembering.

Annie: Ok, Greenlee. Let's see how unmemorable your boyfriend thinks I am.

Both: Hey.

Annie: Hey, Aidan.

Aidan: If you're looking for Greenlee, she's --

Annie: Oh, no, no, no. Actually, I came to see you.

Krystal: Yes, that's perfect. Thank you.

Angie: Thank you.

Krystal: Ok, ok, to Angie and Jesse.

Angie: Hear, hear.

Krystal: I think it's time we celebrated your reunion, right?

Tad: Oh, come on. You can do better than that -- how about a smile? The man who was after you for 20 years is history -- it's got to be worth something.

Angie: And we can put the bad times behind us.

Jesse: Yeah, well, I still don't know why this guy Papel was chasing me.

Tad: Jesse, who cares? He's dead, you're safe -- that's it, end of the line.

Jesse: And my old buddy Remy -- he figures into this somehow.

Tad: If he ever was your buddy.

Jesse: All right, so Angela goes to his mother's house, right? A couple of days later, somebody shows up, kills her, steals his necklace? Who would do that, Tad? Who would murder an innocent old woman and take a worthless piece of --

Tad: Who -- who would do that? Papel would do something like that. That was his MO -- he used to kill people for fun.

Jesse: So where's the necklace? The police don't have it.

Angie: You know, I thought this big old rock was nothing to worry about.

Tad: Thank you.

Krystal: It's probably in some pawnshop, Jesse.

Angie: Maybe he gave it to some woman.

Jesse: Why would Papel want that necklace? There's your question.

Robert: Look at you, all cleaned up and sparkling. You're not going to be alone for long --

[Safe beeps]

Robert: Because Hubbard's going to tell me where your big brother is.

Greenlee: I will not blow it. I made a pact to get it right, to honor Aidan. Boundaries with Ryan, boundaries.

[Music plays at ConFusion]

Greenlee: Hey. Cherry mojito -- yummy. Huh. Ryan? Ok, now you're scaring me -- did someone get hurt?

Ryan: Yes.

Greenlee: Oh, God. Who?

Ryan: You, Greenlee, and I was the one that hurt you. I did so many incredibly terrible, hideous things to you.

Greenlee: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Slow down -- what? Talk to me.

Ryan: Um -- well, the last four years of my life, tonight I -- I saw some of that lost time.

Greenlee: That's great -- isn't it?

Ryan: I -- I saw what I -- what I did to you in -- in the casino hotel room, when I -- when I lost control with you and I --

Greenlee: Oh --

Ryan: I almost hit you.

Greenlee: Ryan.

Ryan: How could I possibly do that to you?

Greenlee: How much of that night do you remember?

Ryan: I don't remember any of it. Greenlee, look, we were at the hospital, you -- you told me that I crashed my bike and -- and I didn't understand that. I didn't understand what happened before I got on my bike.

Greenlee: Well, wait, if you don't remember, then how do you know --

Ryan: Because I saw on the security tape, on footage from -- from the casino security, all right? And I just -- I just got back from the cliff where I crashed my bike, Greenlee. Just -- could you possibly forgive me?

Greenlee: Why would you even go back to that cliff? And who would've saved that footage? Who would even have access to that?

Singer: Oh, yeah

Greenlee: Zach.

Zach: Ryan's living in the past, where he thinks he's still engaged to you. That's his reality, so I showed him mine.

Kendall: You showed him? What, did you bust out with a slide projector?

Zach: Something like that. I took him on a tour of all the places that he may have blocked out over the past four years -- like that cliff he rode his motorcycle off of and almost hit his wife in the mouth? I showed him a DVD of that.

Kendall: Wait a minute. Those -- those were some of the worst moments in Ryan's life. Why would you make him relive them?

Zach: Because those moments are part of who he is -- not just the good times when he was in love with you and Greenlee.

Kendall: I want the truth, Zach. Did you do this to help Ryan or to hurt him?

Aidan: So what's up?

Annie: Well, I thought you might want to talk.

Aidan: About?

Annie: Greenlee. You must be as pissed as I am about that stuff she pulled.

Aidan: I mean, I was, yeah, but I'm over it now.

Annie: Come on. Aidan, your girlfriend kissed another man -- I mean, well, not just any other man -- Ryan, my husband who she used to be married to.

Aidan: Greenlee wants you two back together, so she got a little carried away, but she -- she means well.

Annie: Right, right, right, not to mention she convinced Ryan to lie about remembering me. I mean, that Greenlee's just so helpful.

Aidan: You know what? Thanks for stopping by, Annie. It's -- it's late.

Annie: But I mean, doesn't it bother you, Aidan -- being made a fool of? I mean, to know that the -- the woman you love was alone with another man, pressing her lips up against his? I mean, doesn't that just -- I don't know. Doesn't it just make you crazy?

Aidan: Can I ask you a question?

Annie: Anything.

Aidan: Are you coming on to me?

Greenlee: Zach showed you that video?

Ryan: That doesn't matter, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Yes, it does.

Ryan: No, it doesn't matter. The point is, is that I know now, all right? And I have to -- God, I have to apologize for everything.

Greenlee: Look, I don't know what Zach said to you, but --

Ryan: Greenlee, I grabbed you. I grabbed you so hard. I raised my fist to you.

Greenlee: It was one moment, one horrifying moment, but there's a reason.

Ryan: Yeah, there is a reason -- me, I am the reason.

Greenlee: No, you have to know the context, how we got there.

Ryan: It doesn't matter what you said or what you did or -- it doesn't matter. Any of that doesn't matter. There is no excuse -- none -- for that behavior.

Greenlee: I pushed you, Ryan. I pushed you until you snapped.

Ryan: You are not saying that you deserved that?

Greenlee: No. No, absolutely not, but I was so selfish. I schemed, and I lied, and we were both so sure that we knew what was right, what was best for each other, and it all blew up in our faces.

Ryan: Is that true?

Greenlee: Every word.

Ryan: Well, then why didn't you tell me that before?

Krystal: Who is hungry?

Tad: Now you're talking.

Angie: Mmm, yum, yum.

Tad: What about ribs all around?

Krystal: Ooh, ribs -- they are so good.

Tad: And you know my baby would not sell you a bum steer -- see?

Angie: Well, I am game, because our dinner tonight got interrupted, so what do you hear? What do you say?

Jesse: I say I know what you all are trying to do, and I appreciate it. I really do.

Tad: Sweetheart, we just want you to relax. We just want you to breathe easy, that's all.

Krystal: Yeah. Come on, Jesse, it's been a long time. You deserve it.

Tad: Hell, yeah. And, look, ok, all right, listen -- I admit it, all right? If I had a drug cartel after me, and I had to go underground for 20 years to protect my family, I'm not saying I'd be psyched to join the land of the living, either. But I do want to go on record as, you know -- I'm not putting on the pressure, but I am really, really happy to have you back.

Angie: We all are.

Jesse: Even though I put you all at risk, huh?

Tad: We knew that going in, because we wanted you home. He's dead, he's gone.

Jesse: Tad, I know that. In my head I know that -- I saw the man dead. Somehow, man, I --

Angie: Baby, we don't expect everything to be normal overnight, but you're home, and you're surrounded by people who love you.

Jesse: Mm-hmm. Well, don't get me wrong -- I feel the love, you know that. It's --

Angie: But -- but what?

Jesse: I don't know. I've just got this feeling that it's -- it's not over.

Erica: Sir, I can -- I can explain.

Jake: I told you two back at the convenience store I couldn't give you a ride.

Erica: But we have no money, and we're just trying to get home to our children.

Jake: I know you -- you're Erica Kane.

Erica: Me? Oh, no.

Jake: Oh, yes. You busted out of prison. You and your crazy friend over here. You're all over the news.

Carmen: Keep talking.

Erica: With all due respect, sir, you're mistaken.

Jake: No. Now that I got a better look, it's definitely you. Yeah, my ex-wife used to watch you on the TV every day. I'd know that face anywhere.

Erica: All right -- I am Erica Kane.

Jake: Yeah, well, my ex-wife used to love that show of yours.

Erica: And I am so flattered that she was a fan -- huh.

Jake: Yeah, well, I'm not.

Erica: Oh.

Jake: I mean, you fed her all that garbage about how she could have a -- a new beginning. Well, she got one, all right -- with another man.

Annie: What if I am -- coming on to you? Would you have a problem with that?

Aidan: Yeah, because I have a girlfriend, and, Annie, you are a married woman.

Annie: My husband forgot me. And tonight, I want to forget him.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: Annie, you -- you don't want to do this.

Annie: Why, why not? Why shouldn't we do this, Aidan? Because Ryan's probably out there with Greenlee trying to jog his memory. And instead of working on a future with you, she's too busy gallivanting around in the past with him.

Aidan: Listen, you don't want to turn this into something that it's not. Ok?

Annie: What about Kendall?

Aidan: What about Kendall?

Annie: Well, she's just as bad as Greenlee. And you and Zach keep giving the both of them a free pass.

Aidan: Yeah, because, well, sometimes in extreme situations, people do extreme things. I mean, Greenlee and Kendall -- they're not out there to hurt anyone.

Annie: But they are.

Aidan: Listen, Annie, I know you're frustrated, but --

Annie: No, I'm not frustrated -- I'm sick, Aidan. I am sick of being shoved aside so Kendall and Greenlee can continue on with this stupid competition.

Aidan: Why? What are they competing for?

Annie: The same prize as always -- Ryan.

Ryan: I joined an underground fight club. I -- I came this close to hitting you. I was -- I was so filled with rage. I mean, you told me that I hurt you, but you never mentioned any of that stuff.

Greenlee: Because that's not who you are.

Ryan: I saw the video, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I don't care about a stupid video. I was your wife. I know the kind of man you are.

Ryan: Do you want me to take you to the casino and show you what I saw, remind you of the kind of man that I am?

Greenlee: You were a mess.

Ryan: You know what I'm doing is I'm hiding in this memory loss -- that's what I'm doing. I don't want to face the parts of me that are dangerous, that are disturbed, that --

Greenlee: No, I don't believe that. I don't believe that, I never have.

Ryan: I saw my eyes when I almost hit you, Greenlee -- those were my father's eyes.

Greenlee: No, no.

Ryan: It's in my blood. I went after you once, and I could do it again, I could. I could come after you -- I could come after my kids.

Greenlee: No, that would never happen, never.

Ryan: You don't know that.

Greenlee: Yes, I do. Whatever Zach's led you to believe about yourself, it's not true.

Ryan: All right. Well, then you tell me what is true, Greenlee, the whole story -- you tell me who I am.

Erica: I'm so sorry your marriage didn't work out.

Jake: No, you're not. You don't care about me or other people who watch your show.

Erica: Well, that's not true. I mean, maybe if you watched --

Carmen: Erica Kane is a legend. Women all over watch it and see it all -- looks, guts, possibilities. She's the real deal, so don't get up in her face talking all that smack.

Jake: Or what, sweetheart?

Carmen: Oh, why don't you come here and find out?

Jake: You know, I'd rather just get on the horn to the cops an let them deal with you loony tunes.

Erica: No, wait. Wait. You -- you can't call the cops, you can't turn us in.

Jake: Oh, yeah? Watch me.

Erica: Well, no. You -- you can't do that because if -- if you call the cops, they'll take you to jail, too.

Kendall: Answer me, Zach. Did you want to hurt Ryan?

Zach: What I want is for Ryan to stop hurting other people.

Kendall: What are you talking about?

Zach: He's got a wife and a kid. He should try to maybe work his way back to them instead of moving in on you and Greenlee.

Kendall: "Moving in"? He wants help with his memory, not a ménage a trois.

Zach: He flew 3,000 miles to see you, he made out with Greenlee. Was that helping anybody? No -- you know what I think? I think Ryan is stuck in a time that he wants to be stuck in, when he was still in love with you.

Kendall: He's stuck there, because he can't remember anything else.

Zach: Maybe he doesn't want to remember.

Kendall: He's doing everything he can to snap back.

Zach: See? That's why I'm here -- to tell him the whole story, not just the highlights.

Kendall: No, that doesn't give you the right to do what you did.

Zach: It was necessary.

Kendall: No, it was cruel, Zach. You did that so that you could just scare Ryan away from me.

Zach: Well, he's fixated on my wife -- I had to do something.

Kendall: How would you like it? How would you like it if someone took your most painful memories and the worst mistakes you've ever made and shoved them right in your face?

Zach: They have, and I've dealt with it. Sometimes we need a little tough love.

Kendall: "Love"? No, this is not love. This is control and this is you, once again, playing God.

Aidan: There's no competition, Annie. Nobody's trying to cut you out of the picture or sabotage your marriage.

Annie: So I'm not just forgettable -- now I'm paranoid, too?

Aidan: I didn't say that. I just want you to give Greenlee the benefit of the doubt, that's all.

Annie: And just let it slide, because Greenlee's motives are always so pure? Wake up, Aidan.

Aidan: Listen, I trust Greenlee, all right? What we have is solid. I love her, and she loves me.

Annie: You know what? Ryan is slipping further and further away from me every day, but you have already lost Greenlee, and you can't even see it.

Aidan: Ok, you know what? That's enough.

Annie: Well, think about it, Aidan. Do you even know where Greenlee is right now?

[Music plays at ConFusion]

Greenlee: Ryan -- oh. I don't know.

Ryan: Please, Greenlee, please.

Greenlee: Everything that happened between us? Are you sure you really want to know everything? Ahem. Well, first, we got married. Then we found love, then we were going to have a baby, but all that changed when you realized what was going on with Jonathan.

Ryan: He -- he tried to poison you.

Greenlee: Yeah. But it wasn't his fault. He had a -- a brain tumor, but we didn't know that at the time, and it was awful. He was hitting his girlfriend, he killed people, and then he almost killed me and Kendall and my sister Lily.

Ryan: Oh, my God.

Greenlee: He had us hostage in this cave and if -- if you hadn't --

Ryan: Hadn't -- hadn't what?

Greenlee: Let's not do this, Ryan.

Ryan: Please, Greenlee, please.

Greenlee: You shot him. But -- but if you hadn't, he would've killed us and himself. But he didn't, and he's fine, and he had the tumor removed, and he's ok now, but you didn't know that at the time.

Ryan: I thought that I murdered my own brother?

Greenlee: You thought he was psychotic. And you knew that your father was a sick man who beat you and your brothers, and so that you decided that it ended with you.

Ryan: Meaning?

Greenlee: We would never have a child.

[Blast from the past]

Ryan: I don't know how to make this any clearer. I will not bring another Lavery into this world. Kendall can't change my mind, you can't change my mind -- nobody can, ok? It's over.

[Back to the present]

Ryan: But you wanted a baby?

Greenlee: More than anything.

Ryan: So I -- I made that decision on my own. I made the decision to take away your dream?

Greenlee: You were trying to protect me.

Ryan: God, Zach was right -- I am messed up.

Greenlee: No, no, no, you're not. I'm not saying that it didn't hurt, but you had a legitimate fear. Would you have ever laid a finger on our child? Never. And you've been proving that over and over again with Emma and Spike, but that was something that you had to realize in your own time. I was so wrapped up in myself and my baby mission and saving you to give you the time.

Ryan: Don't do that. Now, don't take the blame for what I did, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I shouldn't blame myself for trying to trick you into having a baby? I stopped using birth control without telling you. You needed your wife to support you and help you, and what did I do? Completely disregard your feelings. Then, to top it all off, I sprung on you that I was pregnant -- you think you took away my dream? I forced you to live your worst nightmare. So that's how we got to that moment in the casino, Ryan -- everything that we were to each other, everything that we promised each other we lost.

Ryan: And the baby?

Greenlee: We lost that, too.

Singer: Bother me don't walk away

Ryan: I don't know how you could even look at me. I don't know how you could look at me and not think that I am, like, the most evil --

Greenlee: What do you want? What do you want from me, Ryan? What do you want me to do? Do you want me to tell you that I -- that I rocked myself back and forth in the dark sobbing so hard I couldn't breathe, that I held my empty belly and asked God, "Why me?"

Ryan: I am so sorry, Greenlee.

Greenlee: No, I'm not saying that it didn't hurt. I'm not saying I didn't ache to the bottom of my soul, but if you're asking me if I died when you died, I -- I can't tell you that because it's not true. The idea of having your baby didn't kill me -- it kept me alive.

Ryan: How, after -- after everything that I've put you through, how could the thought of having my child keep you alive, Greenlee?

Greenlee: "Your baby -- ahem -- my belly." That's what Kendall said. And those words saved my life.

Ryan: But you still wanted to have my child. Why?

Greenlee: Because I knew a part of you would live on. And so would our love.

Ryan: But after everything that I -- that I put you through --

Greenlee: You know what? Nothing, not even your -- your fear, or -- or your anger, or your death would make me stop believing that you would be a wonderful father. I knew that from the beginning, and I was right. That's why I did all those stupid, manipulative things.

Ryan: But Spike -- I mean, he -- he's Kendall's.

Greenlee: Yes. And he's an incredible little boy. We all love him very much, so let's leave it at that, ok?

Ryan: No. Greenlee, you told me that you would tell me the whole story, so you don't get to stop now. Spike was supposed to be ours.

Aidan: I haven't lost Greenlee.

Annie: Hey, you want to live in denial? Have fun.

Aidan: Ok, you want to take a seat for a minute and have a chat? Come on, sit down.

Annie: Fine.

Aidan: Sit. Why don't you tell me about when you and Ryan first met?

Annie: I almost hit him with the fireplace brush.

Aidan: And then what?

Annie: Nothing. Ryan and I have no history. It's -- it's gone. It's erased.

Aidan: Come on, Annie, just -- just try for me, please?

Annie: He was kind and strong and generous. He took care of me and Emma before he even knew who we were. And he made me feel happy and safe, and sexy. And now, he doesn't make me feel anything.

Aidan: And you want to feel that? I mean, you want to feel something again?

Annie: Yeah.

Aidan: And you want it back -- that connection and that passion that you never thought you'd find.

Annie: Yeah.

Aidan: And everything before was wrong. But this was right. I mean, this is it. This is the one. You know, we're lucky, Annie, me and you. We're very lucky, because we found the people that we belong with. Which is why I have no doubt that wherever Greenlee is, that she's going to come back to me. All right? And Ryan's going to come back to you.

Annie: I do love him.

Aidan: I know you do. I know.

Annie: But -- but Ryan doesn't care. Not anymore. And I will not waste my life wanting a man who doesn't want me back.

Kendall: You think Ryan is having a blast in the past, and he's getting too cozy with your wife, so you wanted to punish him.

Zach: You got Ian, Spike, Erica -- they all need your help. Why are we talking about Ryan?

Kendall: Because I care about him, and I thought you did, too.

Zach: I care about my family.

Kendall: Ryan is our family, and he's suffering.

Zach: See, that's the point. He's not suffering. He went to the one place in his life when he wasn't suffering. Before his breakdown -- before he went after you and Greenlee. Have you forgotten that? Maybe you have amnesia, too.

Kendall: How can you be so cold?

Zach: How can you be focused on this guy when your family needs you?

Erica: Is that what you want? To spend the rest of your life in jail?

Jake: You're nuts.

Erica: That dress -- this dress is a knockoff. This dress is a phony, a fake, just like every other stitch of clothing in this entire truck.

Jake: You don't know what you're talking about.

Erica: I know Frederique. And this, sir, is no Frederique. And the final destination of these clothes isn't really Chicago, is it? No, you are transporting this illegal merchandise across the border.

Jake: Wait a second.

Erica: You can call the cops. It's up to you. You can call the cops, and they'll haul us all off to jail. Or you can just let us go our separate ways.

Jake: Hurry up, before someone sees.

Erica: Now what?

Carmen: Oh -- follow me, I got a plan.

[Music plays at The Comeback]

Tad: It is perfectly natural for you to feel uneasy.

Angie: Baby, look, no pressure, ok?

Jesse: Ahem.

Angie: No pressure. We're going to go at your pace, one day at a time.

Jesse: Simple things, right? Talking, laughing? I got to tell you, man, not having to duck and hide -- strange.

Tad: Yeah.

Angie: Mm-hmm.

Tad: You're just going to have to take a little time, that's all.

Krystal: But you know, you just keep going out, spending time with us -- it's just going to keep on getting easier.

[Tad snickers]

Tad: Maybe.

[Tad laughs]

Angie: You know what? Maybe -- maybe we should call it a night.

Jesse: No, baby, no. No, it's -- no, I'm good, I'm good, really.

Angie: Well, are you sure?

Jesse: What, are you kidding me? All these years, I spent dreaming about coming back to my family, my friends. Oh --

Angie: Well, all righty, then.

Jesse: This is where I want to be. I want to be here. I want to be here, y'all, really. And I'm never going to let anything take me away from you again. Hmm, never.

[Angie and Jesse kiss]

Tad: Oh, crap.

Krystal: What? What?

Tad: Kiss me.

Krystal: What?

Tad: Just kiss me.

Krystal: Well --

Jesse: Robert?

Robert: Jesse, everyone.

Angie: Hi.

Krystal: Well, welcome to The Comeback.

Robert: Thank you.

Angie: Tad, aren't you going to say hello to your uncle?

Tad: Hey.

Jesse: You alone?

Robert: Oh, I -- I'm new in town, so I just was having a drink at the bar, and I thought I'd come over and say hello to everyone.

Jesse: Hello.

Angie: Well, listen, Robert, I can't thank you again. I mean, you -- you were a real hero the other day.

Robert: No, I -- I was just -- I was doing my job. Well, my -- my former job. I turned in my resignation to the FBI.

Krystal: Yeah. Congratulations again.

Robert: Well, once that Papel case was down, really, my -- my work was done. I'm just really sorry that we didn't catch him sooner is all.

Jesse: Yeah, well, your timing was something else.

Robert: Hmm.

Jesse: I mean, this -- this guy had my kid. And with the rescue -- and Tad and I had this plan that imploded -- guns, lights -- it's a good thing you showed up when you did.

Robert: Yeah, well, I've been chasing this guy for 20 years. When you get this close, you don't let him go.

Angie: Well, we are so very grateful. We really are.

Robert: Hmm, it's all right. Now, they say the burgers here are really great.

Krystal: You know what? I -- I just have to change this music. I'm sorry. Excuse me. Could you -- Robert, could you help me pick something out on the jukebox?

Robert: I sure can.

Krystal: Please. Please don't take this the wrong way, but this is Jesse's first night out, and he's just kind of feeling uncomfortable and --

Robert: Say no more.

[Krystal sighs]

Krystal: Ok. Hmm.

Robert: Well, so long, everybody.

Angie: Oh, you're leaving?

Robert: Yeah, I'm just going to -- I want to finish my drink and then I think I will head out. Tad, I know I still remind you of your daddy, and I'm sorry about that, but I think one of these days, you're going to see me for who I really am.

[After Robert leaves, Tad turns to Krystal]

Tad: I love you.

Kendall: Don't you dare say that I don't care about my boys, or that I'm not worried sick about my mother.

Zach: I wasn't saying that.

Kendall: I -- I don't need you to tell me what my priorities are. I can see for myself. And so can Ryan and Greenlee. The whole universe doesn't need the great and powerful Zach Slater to set them straight.

Zach: Ryan wants you back, and we got to deal with that.

Kendall: "We"? Funny, I don't remember being invited on your little field trip with Ryan.

Zach: I don't remember being invited when you snuck out with Ryan in L.A.

Kendall: You want to hold that against me? Fine. But I never set out to hurt anyone. You, on the other hand, do what you want, when you want, and to hell with everyone else.

Aidan: Ryan does want you, you know. He's just got to fix that little glitch in his head.

Annie: And what am I supposed to do in the meantime? Put my life on hold? Continue to lie to my daughter?

Aidan: Be patient.

Annie: Oh, yeah, I've been patient. Ryan said that he needed time. I said "Take as much time as you want. I'll be here." And I figured he would take that time to get our life back, but now I realize, he doesn't want our life back. He wants to chase Kendall and make out with Greenlee. Well, you know what?

[Places glass on table]

Annie: I can put up with a lot, Aidan, but I will not be humiliated, and I will not be lied to. I am way too good for that.

Aidan: Have you said any of this to Ryan?

Annie: Of course! Of course, but it has no impact. I am a stranger to Ryan.

Aidan: Annie, I'm sorry that you're going through this hard time right now. I am.

Annie: Yeah. And I'm sorry that I dumped all this on you. But, you know, I meant what I said before. Be careful, Aidan. Or Greenlee's gone.

Greenlee: You've heard enough for one night, Ryan.

Ryan: Greenlee, tell me about Spike.

Greenlee: Another time.

Ryan: He's my son. And he was supposed to be ours.

[Greenlee sighs]

Greenlee: I didn't know that Kendall had decided to use her own egg. She didn't tell me. And then you came back, and I found out that you were pretending to be dead, and that's when everything exploded again.

[Back in the past]

Greenlee: Months ago, I would believe anything, but then you died. My baby died. You came back. You hid everything -- Jonathan, and now Kendall. I -- we don't have a future, Ryan. Not anymore.

[Back to the present]

Greenlee: So I left Pine Valley -- Kendall, you, the baby -- I just going in my car and drove away.

Ryan: I would do anything to change that, you know that? To take away the pain that I caused you.

Greenlee: Pain -- even when I left, that's all I felt. I was broken and bitter and so, so angry. But then, you know, over time it changed, and I started to realize how much good there was.

[Scenes from the past]

Ryan: And after all these years, I found the perfect partner. Someone who is worthy enough to wear this ring. May I? Look at me, look at me. This isn't a dream, Greenlee. This is -- this is real. I love you. You're going to have the honeymoon that you always dreamed of. And it's going to last a lifetime. I won't let anyone take anything from you ever again. You're safe. And you got me forever.

Greenlee: Hmm.

[Back to the present]

Ryan: But you came back. You still came back. Why?

Greenlee: For you. But it was too late.

Erica: This place is closed.

Carmen: Exactly. Get ready to move before they close the door.

Erica: We're going to sleep in a store?

Carmen: Unless you booked us a room at the Ritz.

Erica: Well, what are you so angry about? You got what you wanted. I'm still your prisoner.

Carmen: I'm just sad that my fancy dress was a fake.

Erica: Oh. It isn't. I lied.

[Carmen gasps]

Carmen: You're good. Move.

Jesse: Good old Uncle Robert kind of freaks you out, huh? Like that cat of yours?

[Jesse and Krystal laugh]

Krystal: Shh.

Tad: More. Way more.

Angie: Uh -- you know what? Whatever you might say about Robert -- I mean, Tad, if it wasn't for him --

[Phone rings]

Angie: Krystal and I would be widows.

Jesse: Yeah? Uh -- yeah. You -- you want to meet with me tonight? Is there some kind of problem? Ok, yeah. Um -- I'll be there.

Angie: Who was that?

Jesse: That was U.S. Attorney Samuel Woods.

Tad: What does he want from you?

Jesse: I don't know. Guess I'm about to find out.

Zach: You're right. We need to be a team right now.

Kendall: Is that what we were when you went off on your own to teach Ryan a lesson?

Zach: Don't -- don't do this.

Kendall: No, no -- should I be like you, Zach? Mean and controlling? If that's what you want, I don't want to be on your team.

Annie: I do deserve better.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: She'll come back to me.

Greenlee: You're leaving?

Ryan: Yeah, I'm leaving. I -- thank you.

Greenlee: Well, wait. Wait. I know this is hard, but -- but it's -- it's -- it's good. It's helping us to talk about things. Ask -- ask me more.

Ryan: No, I've asked you too much already.

Greenlee: Ryan -- don't go.

Ryan: I have to.

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

Angie: J.R., make yourself comfortable because you're not leaving until I find out what made you sick.

Jesse: You're offering me a job at the U.S. Attorney's office?

Samuel: It is yours if you want it.

Carmen (to Erica): You think I'm stupid? I saw that.
