Erica: Oh, Faye. Oh, it's absolutely perfect. Thank you. Hey, were you always this talented?

Faye: I had my own salon before I got busted for mail fraud.

Val: Erica, I thought I was going to cry, but you are a miracle worker.

Erica: Oh, well, thank you, but I had a little help.

[Erica laughs]

Erica: Do you believe what the production company did here? I mean, they transformed the whole place.

Val: Please, this is all just window dressing. Only you could actually make this work.

Erica: Which is exactly what we are going to remind our audience of.

Val: So, the, uh, network hasn't fired your replacement yet?

Erica: No, not yet. However, when I pitched this to the president, she knew right away this was going to be a ratings bonanza. So, we negotiated "New Beginnings a special presentation."

Val: And when America gets a load of you, they're going to forget all about your sorry excuse for an understudy, and accept no substitutes. You're Erica Kane. You're one of a kind.

Erica: Thank you, Val. Oh. I don't think you're the only one who feels that way.

Frankie: 5827. Got it. I got to drop something off first. Thanks for the help. All right.

Jake: New set of house calls?

Frankie: Yeah, a patient forgot something.

Jake: Oh. And, uh, you're going to deliver it, because they can't come and get it?

[Frankie chuckles]

Frankie: This woman has a thing for hospitals.

Jake: Oh, oh. I think you got a thing for this woman.

Angie: Do me a favor. The next time someone asks me to cover their graveyard shift, remind me about last night.

Jesse: Hey. Did you get those bagels that I like?

Angie: It was crazy. You know, and if that test proves that Richie Novak really did steal bone marrow from J.R. Chandler -- is that the craziest thing you ever heard of?

Jesse: And you got my favorite coffee in there?

Angie: Yeah, sure. And those rookies just hanging on to your every word.

Jesse: Tell you what. This looks like a good place to eat. Let's eat, huh?

Angie: And you, Jesse Hubbard, all taking charge, giving orders.

Jesse: What? Did you bring me out here to beat me up about last night, or have breakfast?

Angie: No, I'm not --

Jesse: Angela, if you want me to say I didn't enjoy being back in the action, that's not going to happen.

Erica: Jack. Good morning. How nice of you to come.

Jack: You didn't think I'd miss your prison premiere, did you?

Guard: Ah -- no touching.

Jack: Of course. No touching, no touching. This is not a real television studio, this is just -- looks like -- very much looks like -- you understand my confu -- no touching, sorry.

[Erica chuckles]

Jack: I'll tell you something, sister, when you decide to do something, you do it proud.

Erica: And wasn't it wonderful of the governor to pull strings, so I could tape my show here?

Jack: Yeah, I'm a little confused about that. This is a federal prison, not a state prison. I'm surprised that the governor had any pull here at all.

Erica: Well, then whatever someone said to the Federal Board of Prisons, that really worked.

Jack: You don't suppose it's that fact you're a one-woman publicity dynamo, and would be the worst headache in this governor's term?

[Jack chuckles]

Erica: Great thing about re-elections, isn't it?

Jack: Yeah.

Erica: Although, I really don't think that's the only thing that really made this happen. Huh.

Jack: So, how do you think your entire television crew got behind bars?

Erica: I think that I don't always know exactly how many true fans I have.

Greenlee: Good morning. What are you doing here so early?

Zach: I thought about killing somebody last night.

Greenlee: You thought about killing somebody last night? Please tell me it wasn't Aidan.

Zach: Ah, no, it wasn't Aidan.

Greenlee: Thank God. Well -- wh -- what happened? Tell me what happened.

Zach: I was at the hospital, and I heard this voice.

Greenlee: What voice?

Zach: Same voice I heard when I was run over by the car the night of --

Greenlee: Oh, my God.

Zach: Yeah.

Greenlee: Are you sure?

Zach: Mm-hmm. I made a connection. Whoever it was who ran me down is the same guy that locked us in that bomb shelter.

Greenlee: The one who said he'd help us, and then covered us up so we wouldn't be found?

Zach: mm-hmm. Same guy, same voice.

Greenlee: Same son of a bitch who left us there to die? I wish you had killed him.

Angie: You know, I don't expect you to be thrilled to turn down the police chief job.

Jesse: There. We agree on that.

Angie: Is -- is it wrong of me to want you around?

Jesse: Baby, you know what? At some point, we really have to move past the lost 20 years and on to the hard stuff. The real stuff. Come on.

Angie: Wait a minute. Are you saying that my broken heart wasn't real?

Jesse: I'm just saying that maybe us coasting back into happy times was a little too easy. Real life, baby, real marriages -- people get angry. People -- people get hurt sometimes.

Angie: I know that.

Jesse: Well, then you should know that grown-up life can be messy, complicated. And we got a lot of messy, complicated stuff to hash out.

Angie: Yeah. Maybe.

Jesse: All right, so, you know what? Let's do this, right here, right now. You and me, let's have it out.

Frankie: This is about the patient. Not about me hooking up.

Jake: Hmm. And what did she forget? Your phone number?

[Jake chuckles]

Frankie: Well, she forgot how she got a couple of broken bones, bruises, on more than one occasion. Multiple fractures. Some that didn't heal correctly, because she didn't receive the proper medical care.

Jake: So you got domestic abuse.

Frankie: And she's not admitting anything.

Jake: Because she doesn't want a fresh beating.

Frankie: That, or she may get more than a broken wrist next time.

Jake: Why do men feel that they can just --

Frankie: Because they do.

[Jake sighs]

Jake: You know, there's this, uh, little village in Africa where this young mom was severely beaten, because she had two daughters instead of a son. There are these communities where women get raped, then blamed, then ostracized, then sometimes even killed.

Frankie: The world is a messed-up place.

Jake: Hmm. That is why we try to take care of our little corner of it.

Frankie: I know, I know. Do something good. Make a difference.

Jake: It's very difficult when there's so many people to be saved.

Frankie: How do you handle it?

Jake: Me? Sometimes, uh -- well, there's just days that are better than others.

Frankie: So, uh, beating the hell out of this guy is out of the question?

Jake: Listen, you would save every single one of them if you could. That's why you became a doctor in the first place.

Erica: Samuel? To what do I owe this honor?

Samuel: I was in the area.

Erica: Oh, so you just decided to drop in on your favorite convict?

Samuel: I didn't think I'd ever hear you say that.

Erica: What? "Convict"? Well, I'm certainly not proud of what I did, but I'm also not ashamed to include myself with these other women.

Samuel: A lot of people in your position wouldn't be so generous.

Erica: Will you look at this place?

Samuel: Yeah. It's -- it's, uh, it's a trip. It almost -- you can't believe you're in a prison.

Erica: Oh, gee, I hope that's not really the case, because that's the whole point of this show. That's what's going to make it really special.

Samuel: So, can I stick around and check it out?

Erica: Of course. I would expect nothing less. Oh, and when you speak to Governor Brooks, would you please thank him for me? I was very pleasantly surprised when he signed on for this.

Samuel: Sure.

Jack: Morning, Sam. She got you working a camera or running a broom yet?

Samuel: Hey.

Erica: No, no, no. Everything is all taken care of.

Jack: Tell me, can we expect some of those trademark, Eric Kane surprises during the course of this show?

Erica: Well, of course.

[Jack laughs]

Jack: Good.

Samuel: So, you going to go change clothes?

Erica: Uh, no. Actually, the warden offered, but I refused. I thought that wearing a designer gown today, for this particular show, would defeat the purpose. I mean, it's not just about me, it's about Carmen, and all these other men whose lives are going to be permanently changed by this place.

Jack: And, as Carmen's attorney, may I tell you how happy I am that you could get this going on here?

Erica: Well, hopefully, my show is going to tell her story forcefully enough that we can get that case reopened.

Samuel: Erica, you understand that getting a case reopened is not that simple.

Erica: Was that a challenge?

Jack: Sam, Sam, Sam, you really must learn that you can't say things like that around Erica.

Erica: Because I do love a challenge.

Erica: Bob? Bob, we need a camera down -- down there, ok? And, Sean, can we have some more lights on the chairs? They look a little dark to me. We want the uniforms to really pop, ok? We almost ready?

Stage manager: All prepped.

Erica: Ok, good. Carmen? Hi, how you doing?

Carmen: I'm ready for my close-up.

Erica: Oh, good. And do you remember what we talked about?

Carmen: Sure, no sweat. I tell my story to the whole world. My background. Daddy left, grew up with nada, met a guy who used me, yada-yada.

Erica: And then?

Carmen: I was wrongly accused. The plight of the disenfranchised. Good word, I know. Prison library.

Erica: Listen, we don't need good words, we just need your words. You just tell your story.

Carmen: You bet I will. And, when I'm done, everybody, all over, they're going to be moved, inspired, fired up -- just like you do, Erica.

Erica: Carmen, you just be you.

Stage manager: We're almost ready.

Erica: Ok. So, you just -- just look at me, you just talk to me. Just tell your story to me, ok? And don't even worry about the cameras, because you're going to be fabulous. Ok.

Stage manager: All right, everybody. Ok?

[Cheers and applause]

Stage manager: In five, four, three, two --

[Theme music plays]


Erica: Ladies and gentlemen -- welcome back to "New Beginnings." Live from the Hawthorne Federal Detention Center.


Erica: Oh, yeah. We have a very lively audience here with us today.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Oh, ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to begin by apologizing for my absence, but I have been a little busy.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: But it is so good to be back on your screens again. And, please forgive my temporary replacement. She did the very best that she could.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Now, on with the show. Truthfully, it feels like "New Beginnings" is having a new beginning. And, to begin with, I'd like to start by introducing you to a very, very special guest who is here with us today. A man who may very well have his own new beginning on election day. A man who is very likely to become the next senator from this great state, Mr. Samuel Woods.

[Cheers and applause]

Jack: That would be surprise number one.

Jesse: Baby, you're giving me orders about my career.

Angie: I just told you what I could live with. You on the force is not on the list.

Jesse: Hmm. I went along with what you wanted, but I hate waking up every morning, not knowing what I'm going to do that day. Having no reason to get out of bed?

Angie: Your family isn't reason enough?

Jesse: Angela --

Angie: You're interviewing for -- for PVU. You'd be an amazing teacher.

Jesse: Yeah, maybe. But right now, I'm still a cop, baby. It isn't what I do, it's who I am.

Angie: You spent 20 years without being a cop.

Jesse: Being a cop is what helped me survive long enough to get my life back.

Angie: So, I'm holding you back?

Jesse: I told you, I'm going to do this for you. It's going to take me a little time to get over. It's not going to be easy, ok?

Angie: Jesse, does this -- does this all have to be one big favor for me. I an -- I -- I'm sorry, but I assumed that you'd -- you'd like to stay alive to be with us.

Jesse: Being the chief of police has nothing to do with being in the line of fire.

Angie: I don't care! You know what the police force meant to me? Yvonne Caldwell.

Jesse: What?

Angie: Yeah, the woman you cheated on me with, who took you away from me once.

Jesse: Oh --

Angie: And now you're saying that you want to see her again?

Jesse: Angie, wait a minute.

Angie: No, that is -- it's not going to happen again, Jesse! It's not!

Greenlee: Let's go find the bastard, come on.

Zach: Whoa, it's not --

Greenlee: Well, what -- what are you waiting for? We'll go to the police, we'll find him, we'll ID him.

Zach: It's done.

Greenlee: What, he's in jail already?

Zach: No, but the police are watching him. It's Richie Novak.

Greenlee: Richie. As in Annie's nutso brother, Richie?

Zach: Mm-hmm, yeah.

Greenlee: Are you sure?

Zach: I heard his voice in the hospital last night, and, yes, I knew.

Greenlee: Why would he do that to us?

Zach: I don't know. But it turns out we're not his only victims.

Greenlee: Who else?

Zach: He drugged J.R. Chandler, and took his bone marrow for his transplant.

Greenlee: Are you kidding me?

Zach: No. Police are running a DNA panel now.

Greenlee: So, this guy comes into town, he screws up lives, he ruins everything, he almost kills us --

Zach: But we're still here.

Greenlee: Yeah, we're here. And maybe your life turned out to be perfect again, but mine didn't.

Zach: And I'll make sure Richie doesn't get away with it.

Greenlee: Putting Richie in jail won't give me back my life. I was in love, Zach, real love. And then I fell in that freaking hole, and my life went to hell. And then I get out, and I find out your wife and my fiancÚ -- there goes my perfect relationship. There goes my best friend.

Zach: I know you and Kendall are trying to work it out.

Greenlee: Yeah, I can speak to her without cracking her skull, but that's a long way from friendship. And now, Annie's all over me about my friendship with Ryan, so it looks like another friend, gone.

Zach: There she is -- little whiner we all love so much. Welcome back. It's been a while.

Greenlee: My life was ruined because of that guy, and you're making jokes? Thanks a lot, ex-friend. Another one, gone. Novak is scum. I was in that hole how many days?

Zach: Some days seemed longer than others.

Greenlee: I saw a skeleton, I performed emergency surgery --

Zach: No, you didn't. You put some stitches in my --

Greenlee: I ate a flipping snake, for God's sake.

Zach: Ok, you ate a snake. Congratulations. And, you know what? I will make sure that Richie gets an extra two days in prison for that -- two.

Greenlee: [Whispering] I hate you.

Jake: No pillowcases. Ah. So, you're sure this patient of yours has actually been abused?

Frankie: I'm pretty damn sure.

Jake: You're going to sure before you go making accusations.

Frankie: Well, maybe if I go see her --

Jake: Oh, you can't just do this by the telephone? Can't call her?

Frankie: No, I need to look into her eyes. Seriously, I should go check this out, right?

Jake: Remember, there are privacy laws in this world.

Frankie: And I will not reveal anything to anyone.

Jake: And that's all that's going on here, right?

Frankie: I consider it a part of my job.

Jake: Uh-huh. Because I know what it's like to want that rush of the war zone.

Frankie: Look, I ain't looking for no rush.

Jake: No, but if you're looking to be a hero, you know -- you get that adrenaline back. I know.

Frankie: Thank you, Dr. Martin.

Jake: Don't let her screw you up.

Frankie: I'm not.

Jake: Good.

Frankie: Look, I got to go. You coming to babysit me, or what?

Jake: You talking to me?

Frankie: Right. All right, then.

Jake: So, look, you go and see if she needs help. And give her the right aftercare, and you do the right thing. Just remember, if she doesn't want your help, you can't make her take it.

Frankie: All right.

Erica: Let me be clear. Of course, some people are guilty of their crimes.

Samuel: Yes. Yes, some people are guilty of their crimes. Not everyone --

[Audience laughs]

Samuel: But, um -- but a lot of folks are.

Erica: Take me, for example. I unknowingly made an enormous mistake. But ignorance is no reason to break the law. So, I've learned a little more about my crime.

Samuel: Really? So, is this your platform to announce your pursuit of an early parole?

Erica: No. This is my platform to more formally and knowledgeably apologize. Insider trading hurts our nation's markets, hurts our economy. What I thought was a very self-contained action actually could have very far-reaching effects. So, I commend you, Mr. Woods, for seeing that justice was done.

Samuel: Wow. Well, if only all the people that I prosecuted were as magnanimous as you.

Erica: Well, a crime was committed. I had to be arrested. I have no bitter feelings towards the man who made that happen.

Samuel: And, conversely, I have no bitter feelings towards the only person I ever arrested in a red designer gown --

[Audience snickers]

Samuel: Looking very good at a fashion show.

Erica: Well, you wanted to make your statement, Mr. Woods, and you did.

Samuel: Incarceration has changed you, Erica.

Erica: Insider trading hurts our nation's financial system. I know that now.

Samuel: Well, I hope anyone out there with insider information watching your show heeds your -- heeds your message.

Erica: I would like to explain something. Yes, I am here in prison today because Mr. Woods chose to pursue prosecution. However, I am also in front of the camera today because this same man used his influence with the governor, and with the federal board of prisons.

Inmates: Yeah.


Samuel: Now, you see there, I thought I'd kept that under wraps. Apparently not.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Oh, Mr. Woods, you're not the only one who can dig for dirt.

Inmates: Whoo!

Jesse: I can't believe you just said that. Baby, being on the force is nothing like cheating on you.

Angie: Ok. That was too far. I -- I shouldn't have brought up Yvonne.

Jesse: They want me to be their chief of police. Me, Jesse Hubbard from broke-down Center City.

Angie: Jesse, I'm not saying you don't deserve it.

Jesse: But I can't have it?

Angie: Not if you want to be safe.

Jesse: Angie, I've never been safe. We got married and kept our marriage a secret. That wasn't safe.

Angie: That was different.

Jesse: I -- ok. The last 20 years of my life, also not safe, but here, now --

Angie: All right, Jesse, look, you -- you don't have to tell me why you want it. I get that.

Jesse: I don't think you do. I mean, at the hospital, they listen to you. They -- they -- they take your advice. They respect you. Now, here's my chance for that.

Angie: Jesse, you know, the police force changed our lives. It changed our son's life.

Jesse: Our son is a grown man.

Angie: No, inside, he is still that same little boy who lost his father. Look, why am I the villain here for keeping our family safe?

Jesse: What are you -- I -- I kept you all safe by staying away for 20 years. And it was painful. Baby, it was humiliating, and it was shameful as hell. But I did it for you. I don't want to run anymore.

Angie: Is that what you thing I'm doing? That I'm shaming you?

Greenlee: Don't distract me. I'm furious here.

Zach: Distracting you distracts me from killing somebody.

Greenlee: Right, because you can't have your perfect life in prison.

Zach: I don't want to spend time away from my family. I'm sure you understand that.

Greenlee: You need to talk?

Zach: What? You have enough talking for both of us. I don't need to talk, no.

Greenlee: Ha. Very funny. Come on. That's why you came here, isn't it?

Zach: I looked into that guy's eyes -- the person that changed our lives forever -- changed our families forever. I just wanted to see something. I wanted to see guilt or remorse or anything, but there was nothing.

Greenlee: He's a psycho.

Zach: Yeah. And he locked us in that shelter, because he thought it was going to be our tomb. He wanted us dead. And I had him by the neck.

Greenlee: Yeah, but you didn't kill him.

Zach: No, well, who knows. Maybe being in a shelter with you for a month -- maybe that made me a more moral, better person.

Greenlee: Hmm. I wish I could say it made me a better person.

Zach: I think it did.

Greenlee: Hmm. I'm still afraid of death. I'm still afraid of screwing up my life. I'm still afraid of being ditched. And I still wonder why everyone seems so happy -- why their lives seem so much easier.

Zach: We both came out of that hole different people.

Greenlee: Yeah. Yeah, we did. Here you are, a person who's able to forgive his wife, and here I am unable to forgive Aidan.

Richie: What's up, Doc? Am I going to live, or what?

Jake: I just had a little conversation with the police.

Richie: Oh, not my biggest fans, are they?

Jake: You really screwed up.

Angie: I respect you, Jesse, and you damn well know it. I would never shame you.

Jesse: I'm not saying you're doing it on purpose.

Angie: Yes, you deserve respect, but what about what I deserve? You left me for 20 years.

Jesse: Left you?

Angie: I thought you were dead.

Jesse: Left you? Whoa!

Angie: I remembered every one of your birthdays. I -- I -- I lit candles in your memory. Don't I deserve something for that? Some peace?

Jesse: Ok, now you're freaking out. You're freaking out about a job.

Angie: Oh, if you think this is just about a damn job --

Jesse: This is a job that I could be proud of, a job that would make me feel useful. What do you think? I want to kick back for the rest of my life and watch my wife work?

Angie: You think I want to light another candle?

Jesse: I was protecting you.

Angie: And that's what I'm doing for you right now. Jesse, there are so many other options out there. I'm just asking you to find one that makes you happy. That is all I'm asking you.

Jesse: That's all? Come on, Angela. You act as though I do everything without thinking of you, when all I do ever is think about you.

Samuel: So, do I -- do I finally have your vote?

Erica: Well, uh, to begin with, I was undecided and then I was decidedly "no."

[Audience laughs]

Erica: But now after this, I may have changed my mind.

Samuel: Well, you see? That's progress, right?

[Audience laughs]

Samuel: Huh?

Erica: Well, I like a politician I can trust.

Samuel: That's important, a politician you can trust. I think it's so important that people have faith in the judicial system, but conversely, it is of utmost importance that the judicial system is worthy of that faith.

Erica: I would actually like to take a moment to thank you, my audience, for having so much faith in me. All your letters and your calls, your e-mails -- they mean so much to me. And actually, you are all so inquisitive. And so, I'd like to answer a few of the questions you ask most often. Bev and Wally of Keansburg, New Jersey. You ask one I've received many times. "Dear Erica, how does a glamorous star like you survive in prison?"

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Well, Bev and Walley, I certainly miss my facials and my red carpet events and my designer clothes.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Oh, I miss my designer clothes.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: Especially anything that isn't orange.

[Audience laughs]

Erica: But the truth is, it -- it's actually kind of amazing what you can learn to live without when you must and also, I feel now that I'm actually even stronger for it ok, a number of you have heard of the rally that was held outside the prison to -- it was really for my release -- and you're wondering if there's going to be another one. Well, I thoroughly enjoyed the show of support, and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance by B5. They were unbelievable.

[Audience chuckles]

Erica: But the truth is, I -- I do think that there are far more worthy causes in this country today that deserve some rallies of their own. Don't you agree, Samuel?

Samuel: I think it is such an interesting time for -- for Democrats and Republicans alike and I really, really hope that all Americans get out there and exercise their constitutional right to vote. Don't complain later. Vote.

[Erica sighs]

Erica: Here's a question that I have received far too often. "Erica, how can you stand being locked up with all those kind of people?"

[Audience reacts]

Erica: Yeah. My thoughts exactly. First of all, the very fact that I am locked up in prison means that I am one of "those kinds of people."


Erica: Most of us who are here are here, because we've made a mistake and most of us are trying to learn from those mistakes and become more productive citizens. And so, right now, I really would like to introduce you to another one of "those kinds of people." Actually, she's my kind of people. I'm sure that most of you out there think that you know the story. You've read about it, how she and I were on the run. Most of you read about how this woman held me hostage, and you think you know the whole story. But you don't, because the real story is that now this woman -- this woman is exactly the kind of woman who I adore, who I would like standing right by my side, who I would trust my life with. She is smart, she is brave, she is courageous, and she has a story that you really need to hear. Carmen, will you please come up here and join me?


Inmate: Whoo!

Inmate: Whoo-whoo!

Erica: Carmen, please tell us your story. I know you're dying to share it. Before our incarceration here, Carmen, you -- you delivered two criminals into the hands of the authorities, didn't you? And for that, they tacked on extra time, didn't they?

[Audience reacts]

Carmen: Yeah, extra time.

Erica: And did you do anything wrong? Did you commit a crime? Did you do anything wrong, Carmen? Loving -- loving the wrong person. That is the only thing that Carmen did wrong, and who of us hasn't done that?

[Audience laughs]

Frankie: Oh.

Randi: What are you doing here?

Frankie: I, uh, have some medical directions for you. You practically sprinted out of the ER last night.

Randi: So you tracked me down?

Frankie: It was the, uh, only number you had on file. I thought you were a waitress.

Randi: I am. I got two jobs. You got a problem with that?

Frankie: No --

Randi: Look, you can't be here.

Frankie: All right, well, just tell me how you're feeling.

Randi: Like I'm being stalked. Just give me the instructions and get out of here.

Richie: Come on, Doc. You should know better than to believe everything you hear.

Jake: Do you know what they're saying about you?

Richie: You've also heard of "innocent until proven guilty"?

Jake: You know the woman that you locked in the hole?

Richie: Hmm -- which one?

Jake: She's a friend of mine, and my brother is J.R. Chandler's stepdad.

Richie: Your brother -- Chandler -- are all you people in Pine Valley related?

Jake: It's pretty gutsy of a person to try to steal bone marrow.

Richie: Oh, there's no proof of that, either.

Jake: No.

Richie: No.

Jake: Not yet.

Richie: Look at me, Doc. I'm the one sitting in this bed. I mean, someone put me he. How could I possibly be the criminal?

Jake: You framed a person for a hit-and-run, you steal their bone marrow, and -- and you set them up with a hooker.

Richie: It's pretty twisted.

Jake: Now it's coming back to bite you in the ass.

Richie: Hey, man, look. Unless you have anything important to say, why don't you let me go have my rest?

Jake: You're right. Let's have this conversation after the DNA results come back.

Greenlee: Loving Aidan helped me survive and now loving him hurts so much.

Zach: You got to give it time.

Greenlee: Easier said than done. How did Kendall react to the news about Richie?

Zach: I didn't tell her.

Greenlee: Waiting for a special occasion?

Zach: I just didn't want to bring it all up again, that's all.

Greenlee: Hmm. Not when you thought you were over it.

Zach: I thought we were over it.

Greenlee: And now?

Zach: Now it's back.

Greenlee: Charges, a court case, living through it all over again.

Zach: Yeah, I'm not looking forward to that.

Greenlee: I think about it every day -- every day, that feeling. I can't stand it, but I can't stop doing it, you know? I wish I could get past it. I wish that --

Zach: Hey. Come here.

Jake: File, thank you. You're going to want this.

Richie: Oh. Hmm, you quack. What part of "the patient needs rest" are you having a hard time understanding?

Jake: It looks like your luck has just run out, and I can't say that I'm sorry.

[Phone rings]

Zach: Slater. Really? Ok. The DNA panel came back, and it was J.R.'s bone marrow.

Greenlee: Richie really did it?

Zach: Uh-huh. Taking him to lockup now. I need to be there.

Greenlee: You're not going without me.

Erica: Ladies and gentlemen, I am not asking for any leniency. I'm not asking for any special treatment at all. I -- I will be here after some of these women are released. I know that. But Carmen Morales doesn't belong here at all. I think maybe the reason I created "New Beginnings" -- maybe the reason even that I ended up in prison was for this moment. I believe in you. I believe in you, my audience out there. I know that you want to better you lives, and I know that you want a better society. I know that you do not want to see any injustice go ignored. I know that you have strong minds and even stronger hearts. You can make your voices heard. You can hold all of our leaders accountable to all of us -- to all of us. To the greatest and the weakest, to the rich and poor, to the weak and the strong. Thank you.

[Cheers and applause]

[Theme music plays]

Randi: Anything else I can do for you?

Frankie: Actually -- yes.

Randi: Not what I meant.

Frankie: Last night, you offered to buy me a cup of coffee.

Randi: So?

Frankie: I'm thirsty.

Randi: Ok, fine. Let's go.

Jesse: You're not being rational, Angela.

Angie: I don't care! My husband came back from the dead. I'll be irrational if I want to.

Jesse: You know what? I would never ask you to give up your job.

Angie: Well, I save people's lives. I don't risk my life.

Jesse: And I could save lives, too, just not the Angela-approved way.

Angie: Oh, come on. You know that's not what I meant.

Jesse: You know what I'm hearing here? I'm hearing your father all over again.

Angie: What?

Jesse: Yeah. "Jesse and his cop career just ain't good enough for you!"

Angie: You know what? You make me so -- I have never been so angry in my life. You carry the damn basket.

Officer: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot --

Zach: I'm watching him arrest the man that hurt us, Kendall. He didn't get away with it.

Officer: Understand these rights?

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

Tad (to Aidan): This isn't about you. It's about me. You and I won't be working together anymore.

Ryan (to Greenlee): I'm just asking you to back off.

Greenlee: Looks like you're back on track -- bully for you.

J.R.: All those in favor of some good old-fashioned vigilante justice, say "Aye."
