Jesse: Oh, hey. Got that emergency all under control, Dr. Hubbard?
Angie: The patient was a koala bear.
Jesse: Yeah, well, I'm willing to bet that you were the one to solve the problem.
Angie: I had to amputate his thumbs.
Jesse: That dude was lucky that you were on call, I'll tell you that.
Angie: No, you're the one who is lucky. With me working in the E.R., you had time to obsess.
Jesse: Oh, no, Gardner just sent this Papel file over. I'm just trying to help him, you know --
Angie: Let somebody else help Robert Gardner. Anybody but you.
Annie: My guess? You only accepted Aidan's proposal because you got rejected, again, by Ryan.
Greenlee: Speak of the devil.
Ryan: "The devil"? Wow, am I really that bad? Actually, wait. Don't answer that, please.
Annie: You are pretty wonderful sometimes, which is why people love you. Including me.
Greenlee: Annie's just biased. She thinks that all women worship at your feet.
Ryan: So, wait a minute. They don't?
Annie: Well, you actually have one less worshipper. Greenlee and Aidan are engaged.
Aidan: I'm sorry, what are we doing here? Here I am, telling you that I just got engaged to Greenlee, and you just give me the third degree about Kendall. It doesn't make sense.
Tad: You know, you're really good at ducking and weaving.
Aidan: I'm not "ducking and weaving," Tad. What are we doing here? What is this?
Tad: It's a simple question. Answer it.
Aidan: Just leave it alone, ok?
Tad: Aidan, whatever you keep trying to swallow about Kendall, it keeps backing up on you. Soon, it's going to make you sick.
Aidan: I'm telling you, you're wrong. I'm fine.
Tad: You're anything but fine. And it's driving me crazy. So, enough is enough. What the hell is wrong with you?
Aidan: I got a lot of guilt. All right? A lot of guilt and -- shame.
Kendall: Zach, please don't shut me out. I know -- I know that you and Greenlee were facing death, and I know that I should have kept the faith that you would come back to me. But I didn't. Do you want to hear --
Zach: I don't want to hear anything.
Kendall: I have to tell you that I am ashamed, I am so ashamed that I let my grief for you push me into the arms of another man.
Zach: You should have told me.
Kendall: And if I had, what would you have done? Please, you have to understand. I was so scared, I made myself sick.
Zach: What did you think I was going to do? Lash out at you?
Zach: Leave you? I thought you trusted me completely. And I was wrong. You don't trust me at all.
Kendall: Zach. The last thing -- the last thing I ever wanted to do was disappoint you, and see that look that you have in your eyes right now.
Zach: I can't help the look.
Kendall: I know. And that's what's so painful. It's just there. Tell me what I can do. What can I do to make it better?
Zach: I wish I knew.
Kendall: But you know that I love you.
Zach: That was never the problem.
Kendall: And you know that I am not perfect, and that I certainly don't have any feelings for Aidan. I mean, you have to have known that, or you never would have sent us on that book tour together. Were you testing us?
Ryan: Well, it is a very, very nice ring. So, what am I? Blessed now?
Greenlee: No, you're knighted. Which means all the ale you can drink.
Annie: Ale is Aidan's drink, not Ryan's, remember?
Greenlee: I never confuse to two. "Nice" doesn't begin to describe this ring. Closer to "exquisite," "divine."
Ryan: Oh, I see. So, when is this "exquisite, divine" wedding happening?
Greenlee: As soon as I can get it all together.
Ryan: Really? Why the rush? I mean, Aidan's not going anywhere.
Annie: I don't blame her for wanting to get married so soon. I can actually kind of relate. When Ryan and I were getting married, we didn't want to wait. It was partly because of Emma, but it was mostly because we just wanted to get on with our lives.
Greenlee: That's exactly how Aidan and I feel.
Annie: For better or for worse. I found comfort in that. You know, it means you'll really stick together through the hard times.
Greenlee: Well, we don't plan on any hard times.
Ryan: Yeah, nobody ever does.
Greenlee: Oh, we have paid our debts to the universe. From now on, it's fun, fun, fun.
Ryan: All right, well, I got a "fun" idea for a wedding gift. How about matching motorcycle helmets? You probably need a replacement for the pink one you have, right?
Annie: You remembered something else. And it's about Greenlee.
Angie: You send this pile of junk back to Robert Gardner, or I'll set a match to it.
Jesse: Come on, Angela, don't --
Angie: You know, 20 years of memories, Jesse. Halloween, Christmas trees, Frankie's science fair ribbons, you -- you missed all that because of -- because of this!
Jesse: I know what I took from you.
Angie: I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about this drug lord and his scum. Now, the man is dead. Let him rot in his grave. You and I are just starting to live.
Jesse: Gardner's just trying to help these people write a movie.
Angie: Is there a part in there for me? Look, let them write it and leave us alone.
Jesse: I want to know what happened to us, all right? I need to know why I had to run to stay alive, why I had to steer clear of my family so they wouldn't be hurt!
Angie: What difference does it make? It's over. Let's just live our lives!
Jesse: I don't know if I can do that, baby.
Angie: What are you saying?
Jesse: I need to know the reasons. I need facts. I need answers.
Angie: What if there are no answers, Jesse?
Jesse: Oh, there are always answers, baby. Just got to know where to find them.
Robert: Yeah, it's good.
Waiter: A hobby?
Robert: Oh, it's more than just a hobby. It's an ancient, mystical practice.
Waiter: How does it work?
Robert: You fold a thousand cranes, and your wish will come true.
Waiter: How many cranes have you made so far?
Waiter: That's one giant wish. Hope it comes true.
Robert: I'm certain it will.
Jesse: I gave up my wife and my son. And I need to know what for.
Angie: To stay alive. You managed that. Now, put this away and live.
Jesse: Sweetie, you don't even care why we lost so much?
Angie: I'm grateful for what we've got, and I want to keep it for a lot of tomorrows. I want to -- I want to blow out birthday candles. I want to light sparklers for the Fourth of July. I want to fall asleep in your arms every night and wake up with you every morning.
Jesse: You think I don't want that? Baby, I want that more than anything. Someone stole that from us. You don't want to know who, or why?
Angie: Papel is the "who." We know that.
Jesse: We know what we've been told.
Angie: I choose to believe the F.B.I. And as for what Papel wanted, I don't give a damn.
Jesse: I'm sorry, baby, but I do. I need to nail down every detail. I need to follow every lead -- follow every trail I possibly can.
Angie: You won't let this go.
Jesse: I can't. I can't.
Frankie: Neither can I. You know that song? "Time in a Bottle"?
Angie: Are you telling me we're still in danger?
Jesse: Not necessarily.
Angie: Would that be a "yes" or a "no"?
Frankie: It's a "need to know more."
Jesse: The boy is right.
Frankie: I ain't no "boy." I'm a man.
Jesse: You're my boy.
Angie: And right now, the similarities are scaring me. Look, we know Papel is dead, so it's not like we're going to get any justice. Why do we need to know more than that?
Jesse: Because it might be important.
Angie: "Important" how?
Jesse: That's what we need to find out.
Angie: You know what, you're speaking in circles, Jesse, and you're giving me a damn stupid headache. Now, why can't we just live our lives?
Jesse: Because somebody could still be out there waiting to pounce.
Angie: What have we got to "pounce" on? Pots and pans? A toaster oven? A vibrating chair? What fool would "pounce" for any of that?
Jesse: A fool who thought we might have more.
Greenlee: I am so sorry.
Annie: Don't worry about me. I'm fine. It's actually encouraging. The more Ryan remembers about other people, the greater chance is he'll remember me.
Greenlee: But it wasn't a memory, my pink helmet. I told Ryan about it weeks ago. Remember, I was getting -- I was just trying to get you to remember the day that your bike got stuck in the snow. And I happened to mention my helmet?
Ryan: Oh, yeah. You're right. You did, yeah.
Greenlee: Yeah, he didn't remember the snow thing. Or my helmet, for that matter. But I tried.
Ryan: Yeah. She was trying to jog my memory anyway, and I couldn't remember anything.
Greenlee: All I managed to do was burn an image of a pink motorcycle helmet into his brain.
Ryan: She just went on and on, trying to help me, yeah.
Annie: And you thought somehow your helmet would do the trick?
Greenlee: I was talking and talking compulsively. Well, I'm off to meet my fiancÚ. Isn't that the loveliest word, "fiancÚ"?
Annie: Personally, I like the word "husband." It's solid, comforting.
Greenlee: Can't wait to use it. I mean -- again.
Ryan: They say "three's the charm," so --
Greenlee: "Charm," ha! Annie, write that down. Maybe you can use it. All right, bye.
Ryan: Here. Let me help. Let me help. Hey, thank you for that.
Greenlee: Was I over the top?
Ryan: No, you were great.
Greenlee: You really did remember us.
Annie: Hey, need some help?
Greenlee: No, I'm fine.
Annie: Ok, great. Well, send Aidan my best.
Ryan: Yeah, tell him congratulations, ok?
Ryan: All right.
Annie: So, why are you really here?
Ryan: I thought maybe I could get just, like, a whole makeover, you know? A whole new -- I'm here to see you. What do you think?
Annie: To tell you the truth, Ryan, I don't know what to think anymore.
Kendall: Why would you send Aidan, of all people, to protect me?
Zach: Well, I trusted Aidan to protect you, and he did protect you.
Kendall: Ok, so you trusted Aidan, but not me? Zach, can I ask you something?
Kendall: What exactly are you picturing went on between Aidan and me?
Zach: I don't know. I see two people reaching out to each other, trying to get through the night, struggling to survive. That's what I see.
Kendall: Ok. Well, then, why would you send him to California with me?
Zach: Because I knew nothing would happen in that hotel room.
Kendall: Oh -- what? How could you be so sure of that, Zach? You already thought that Aidan and I might have slept together. Oh, my God. My God! When I thought I was pregnant, whose child did you think it was?
Zach: Better question is, whose child did you think it was?
Kendall: Don't start twisting it, Zach.
Zach: "Don't start twisting it, Zach"? You sleep with Aidan, and now I'm the bad guy?
Kendall: No, no, of course not. That's not what I mean.
Zach: What do you mean?
Kendall: I'm trying to make sense of it. I'm trying to figure out why you would send Aidan away with me, knowing how your mind works?
Zach: You have no know idea how my mind works.
Kendall: Well, I thought I did, but now -- I guess I just -- I need you to understand me.
Zach: I do understand. That's what makes it worse.
Kendall: You wouldn't feel that way if you would just let me explain to you --
Zach: You explained enough. That's it.
Kendall: No, no, Zach. Please, please, please don't leave.
Zach: This isn't helping anybody. I'll see you.
Kendall: No, no, no! Please just wait a second, ok? Let's find something that will help us, ok? Come with me.
Kendall: Please, Zach, will you come with me?
Ryan: Well, I just came here straight here from my, uh, from my shrink appointment.
Annie: Do you have an assignment?
Ryan: No, no, but I just thought you were making a lot of progress, you know, when you ripped up the divorce papers, so --
Annie: I'm not the one who needs to make progress. I'm not the one who's forgotten you.
Ryan: True, but, you know, I just thought you were headed in the right direction when you said you were going to bail on me, and you decided not to because I asked for more time, and you took a step in my direction, so I thought I would take a step in your direction.
Annie: Ok, what did you have in mind?
Ryan: Well, I guess we could just sort of talk about us, about how things got started, you know? Things like that.
Annie: Except I would be the only one doing the talking.
Ryan: Uh, yes, but I would do my part. I'll be asking all the right the questions
Annie: Such as?
Ryan: So, you're saying that I never loved Annie? That's your grand theory here?
Ryan: Um -- uh, was it love at first sight for us?
Annie: No. Far from it. I was staying at your apartment with Erin, and I had never met you before. And you came home, and I thought you were an intruder. So, I almost hit you with a fireplace brush.
Ryan: With a fireplace brush?
Annie: It was dark. But I didn't actually hit you. You were saved in the nick of time.
Annie: But there was a time when I was so paranoid that I accidentally shot you in the shoulder, thinking that you were my ex-husband.
Ryan: You shot me? You shot me in the shoulder? And you're the one angry at me. Unbelievable. Ok, so how did we get from you trying to kill me to us actually dating?
Annie: Well, we didn't really date, actually. Not in the traditional sense. I mean, you know, we got to know each other, because Emma and I were staying at your place. We were just kind of thrown together, you know?
Ryan: Thrown together by what? By lack of space?
Annie: Well, partly because of Emma, and also because there was crisis after crisis. And you were always being our hero. Greenlee was right to call you a knight. You defended me so many times.
Ryan: Defended you? Against what?
Annie: Oh, God. Well, first, by my child-molesting ex-husband, who I told you about. And then Tad and Dixie Martin, who thought that Emma was their long-lost daughter. Social Services, who thought I had kidnapped Emma. And then, of course, there was Kendall. And then, of course, there was Erica.
Ryan: Wow. "Crisis after crisis" is right. There must have been a lot of adrenaline in that, like, a real rush around all that stuff. So, um, who was the first person to use the L word?
Annie: I was, but my mistake. See, I didn't think that you were really that into me. I just thought you were trying to do the right thing because of Emma. Pursuing me because I was her mother.
Ryan: What about me? When was the first time, how did I first tell you that I loved you?
Annie: Well, what happened was that you proposed first.
Ryan: Oh. So, I proposed and told you that I loved you all at the same time?
Annie: No, you, um -- you asked me to marry you first. You didn't tell me you loved me until a little while after that.
Ryan: Ah. That seems a little backwards, doesn't it?
Annie: Yeah. It did to me, too. Which is why I repeatedly said "No" until you finally wore me down.
Tad: Aidan. I'm your friend, ok? I'll do anything, anything I can to help you. But I can't begin to do that until you tell me what the problem is.
Aidan: I thought Greenlee was gone. Forever. I got Kendall to accept that Zach was dead. We were like two wounded animals. We were desperate. We didn't know what we were doing. We were going out of our bloody minds.
Kendall: This is where it happened.
Zach: I have no intention of going inside.
Kendall: I don't want you to be here, either, Zach. It scares the hell out of me. But you need to see.
Zach: I'll take a pass.
Kendall: No, Zach, I hurt you by withholding the truth. No more, no more.
Zach: I already know the truth.
Kendall: Not up close and personal.
Zach: And I'm going to skip "up close and personal," if that's ok with you.
Kendall: What happened to Mr. "Give it to me straight"? "Trust me, Kendall." Isn't that what you wanted? Or maybe I'm not the only one who's afraid here.
Zach: This place has no meaning.
Kendall: You're dead wrong, and you know it. And I understand. I want to turn around right now, and run away, and hide. But you have to understand, Zach, I'm not trying to hurt us. I'm trying to save us.
Aidan: We were filthy from searching. We were cold and we were exhausted. I mean, I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest. Kendall was holding on to every last single piece of hope, and I convinced her that Zach and Greenlee were gone.
Kendall: Lovely, isn't it? Charming, cozy, and inviting, not to mention romantic. Who wouldn't melt in an atmosphere like this?
Aidan: Kendall hated me telling her the so-called truth or what I thought was the truth. Zach was dead and Greenlee was dead. There was no point in carrying on the search, because there was no way that we were going to find them, Tad. She -- she freaked out. She hated me telling her that was the situation. She pounded on my chest, and she was hitting me and thumping me. And I told her I was sorry, and she wouldn't accept it. I mean, if there was a knife -- if there was a knife there, she would have used it, and she would have ripped me to shreds, but there was no point, because I felt like I had nothing left.
Kendall: I hated Aidan for being alive when the love of my life was dead. So, I attacked him. I physically attacked him.
Zach: I don't need to hear this.
Kendall: Yes -- yes, you do, Zach. You do. I kicked him, and I punched him, and I beat the hell out of Aidan, and he didn't even try to stop me. Zach, I didn't betray you and me. I wasn't myself. I was somebody I don't like very much, maybe somebody you don't even know.
Zach: I know you, Kendall. I know the light and the dark.
Kendall: But right now, all you're seeing is the dark and that scares the hell out of me.
Tad: If Zach finds out, he's going to kill you.
Aidan: Zach won't find out.
Tad: And if Greenlee finds out?
Aidan: She won't.
Greenlee: If Greenlee finds out what?
Jesse: I don't know. The Papel guy that the Bureau has tagged, there's something off with that. I mean, his profile, it just doesn't scream "criminal genius" to me.
Angie: Maybe that's his special talent, passing himself off as a regular guy.
Frankie: No, it doesn't add up.
Angie: How would you know? What experience do you have with this sort of thing?
Frankie: Oh, well, hateration. Mom, I was a soldier on the front line. I have experience more than you know. Now, something's wrong.
Angie: Oh, something's very, very wrong, but it's not in the file, it's the two of you. We finally get a normal life, and you want to blow it to bits.
Frankie: Mom, all I'm saying --
Angie: Oh, I don't to hear any more. I'm going to the market and roll my cart up and down the aisles and pretend I'm a normal person and that my husband and my son are normal, too. Now, you work with that, will you, while I'm away as a favor to me? Mother's Day's in a couple of weeks. Skip the candy, the flowers, and the dinner. All I want is a sane, rational, normal life.
Jesse: Normal. Well, after the 20 years I just went through, I will never be normal again.
Frankie: Yeah, me, either. After Baghdad, I don't know who I am anymore.
Jesse: It can't be easy, face to face with all that death over there in Iraq.
Frankie: Well, yeah, well, I caused some of it personally.
Jesse: You were in a war, Frankie. You couldn't save everybody.
Frankie: I actually killed three people.
Jesse: Enemies. You either take them out or they take you out, right?
Frankie: U.S. Infantry.
Frankie: I caught a kid on the street beaten half to death. He couldn't have been no more than 15. He said he got into it over some girl he liked, a girl from a rival sect -- some sect or something. Anyway, I took him in to get him patched up, but I didn't think to check him for weapons.
Jesse: Oh, God. I know how this ends.
Frankie: Guy takes out a gun and opens up and kills three patients lying on their bed -- not just our guys, my guys, my personal friends. Then he offs himself.
Jesse: This wasn't your fault, Frankie.
Frankie: That's what they keep telling me. So, whose fault was it?
Jesse: This is war, man! War is insane. War is hell.
Frankie: Well, if war is hell, what does that make me?
Jesse: No, don't -- whoa, whoa, whoa, don't do that, man. Don't carry this on your shoulders alone. You got to let it go.
Frankie: How? Tell me how.
Jesse: Frankie --
Frankie: Don't tell Mom. She thinks I'm a hero, but I'm a murderer. I might as well have pulled the trigger myself.
Jesse: You are not a murderer. You were in service to your country. Now, that really has got to count for something.
Robert: Dr. Hubbard.
Angie: "Angie," remember?
Robert: Angie, come on in. Come on in.
Angie: Thank you.
Robert: It's good to see you. Can I get you something or --
Angie: Uh, yes, you can -- my life back. Jesse is so caught up in your file that he can't let go of the past. I mean, the more information you give him, the more fixated he is on things he can't begin to understand.
Robert: Well, I thought it would help him working on the story with me. I thought it would put things in perspective.
Angie: No, the only thing Jesse thinks will put it in perspective is finding out exactly what happened, why he was targeted, who was after him, what they wanted.
Robert: Papel is the answer to most of those questions.
Angie: "Most" isn't good enough. Jesse won't rest until he knows all.
Robert: Some of our questions may never be answered.
Angie: I understand that, but Jesse can't, and that's why I'm asking you, Robert. I'm begging you, really, as a favor to me, back off.
Ryan: So, what was the most romantic thing that I ever said to you?
Annie: We were standing on the terrace -- the sun had just come up, and you said that I was even more beautiful in the morning sun than I was under the moon and the stars.
Ryan: Wow. Sounds like love to me.
Annie: It did to me, too. It made me relax and believe.
Annie: That you might be ready for a different kind of woman, not a spitfire like Kendall and Greenlee. I'm kind of the opposite of that in a way.
Greenlee: What am I not supposed to know, guys?
Aidan: If I told you, I'd have to kill you.
Greenlee: Is Kendall, by any chance, in on this? I mean, she doesn't even know I'm engaged yet. Is there a bridal shower in the making?
Aidan: No comment.
Tad: Won't get a word out of me.
Greenlee: If anyone is going to shower me with gifts, it better be soon. I want to get married immediately.
Aidan: Really? Define "immediate."
Greenlee: Well, as soon as the wedding planner can grant all my wishes.
Tad: You trying to set a speed record?
Greenlee: I happen to be fond of speed. Just be ready.
Aidan: Listen, you know, these plans -- this is the first time for me, so --
Greenlee: No -- just leave it to me.
Kendall: Tell me. Is this a deal breaker? Is there going to be no more us? Do you want out of this marriage? I mean, I won't fight you on it. I want to, but if you want out of this marriage, I understand.
Kendall: No, I'm -- I'm not the woman that you thought you married. I'm much weaker. I'm much, much weaker than that.
Zach: I know who you are.
Kendall: You have given me everything I have ever wanted, and I couldn't give you what you needed most.
Zach: You've given me more than anyone ever has.
Kendall: Absolute trust. I know what that means to you, and I couldn't do it. You've given me more than I ever deserved and I cheated on you. There's no one to blame for this but myself. It's my fault. It's all my fault.
Jesse: You did what you thought was right at the time. All right?
Frankie: And I murdered three U.S. soldiers.
Jesse: You did not murder any soldiers -- don't do this to yourself, would you? Let it go. Just let it go.
Frankie: It's not going to happen.
Jesse: Time, Frankie. Time. I mean, look at me. After all this time, I finally get my son back. Time. Come here.
Robert: I have a confession to make. I have not been completely honest.
Angie: What? With Jesse or me?
Robert: Well, I don't really need a consultant for that movie.
Angie: Then why draw Jesse into all of this?
Robert: I'm embarrassed to say it. I -- I just -- I wanted someone to talk to. See, I have very few friends here -- actually, none.
Angie: Oh, Robert, you're welcome at our house any time. Look, you saved my husband and my son. You have a permanent seat at my table.
Robert: Oh, that means a lot to me, Angie. It really does.
Angie: If you would just please talk to Jesse about something besides Papel.
Robert: Oh, believe me, I have other interests.
Angie: I can't wait to hear -- at our house when you come for dinner.
Robert: I'm going to hold you to that.
Angie: Oh, I'm a woman of my word.
Robert: I'm counting on it.
Angie: You absolutely can. Robert, thank you so much for being understanding.
Robert: Oh, please. Your family deserves some peace.
Angie: Thank you.
Robert: 639. Old Jesse, you're going to give me what I want, and you don't even know it's in you.
Ryan: So, what was it that finally convinced you that I really -- I really did love you?
Annie: Your loyalty. You never once let me down. I just -- I really wish you could remember.
Ryan: I can imagine.
Ryan: Who the hell are you?
Kendall: What the hell are you doing in my room?
Greenlee: Long day at the office, dear?
Annie: Hopefully one day, you can stop imagining and really feel what we had -- what I think we still have deep down.
Therapist: It sounds as though you've remembered the positive memories -- the ones that feel good, but not the ones that feel bad.
Annie: I really believe it's there.
Greenlee: To true love and marriage.
Aidan: To my soul mate and the love of my life.
Tad: To adventure. Hmm. Hmm -- hmm.
Greenlee: It's an acquired taste.
Tad: Yeah, one I'm definitely not going to acquire. Why are you picking on me?
Aidan: Champagne and stout, it's called a snakebite -- Greenlee's concoction. She came up with it on Halloween.
Tad: You trying to raise the dead or simply kill the living?
Greenlee: Hey, it's good luck love-wise.
Tad: Make sure you serve it to whatever Elvis impersonator marries you in Vegas.
Greenlee: We're not getting married in Vegas. We're going to get married in Pine Valley surrounded by family and friends, my father, and Lily, and you, Ryan, Annie, but especially, Kendall and Zach.
Zach: It's ok. It's going to be ok.
Zach: Shh. Let's go home. Come on.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Erica (to Samuel): I need your help.
Jesse (to Robert): I don't think the guy that you shot was the same guy that stole my life.
Adam (to Krystal): I love you.
Krystal (to Angie): You're going to have to save him, ok? Please don't let him die.
