Erica: It's just dinner. It's my first dinner out in about five months, but still -- I mean, I've had dinner at the Valley Inn hundreds of times. Why am I so nervous?

[Knock on door]

Kendall: Surprise!

Erica: Kendall, Zach, hi.

Kendall: Hi.

Erica: What are you doing here?

Zach: We thought we'd take you out for dinner to celebrate your freedom and your new dress.

Erica: Oh, thank you. It's very sweet of you, but I already have a date.

Jackson: Hi, it's Jack Montgomery. Listen, I wonder if we could push our meeting back a little bit. Yeah, I've got a client just got out of prison. I'm having a meeting with her, but, uh, I think she's running a little bit late. No, -- no, it shouldn't take long at all. All right, I appreciate it. Thanks. Some things never change.

Frankie: Oh, sorry I'm late, man.

Jake: It's all right. Probably a rough shift?

Frankie: Yeah, yeah, you know. I have to wait for a few doctors to come in and find a couple shifts.

Jake: What happened? Are you kidding me? What happened to you?

Randi: Too much. No way.

Annie: Now, is this the mommy penguin?

Emma: Yes.

Annie: Yes. And is this her baby? Emma, I have something very, very exciting to tell you.

Emma: What, Mommy?

Annie: We're going to have a baby, too.


Receptionist: May I help you?

Aidan: I represent a client that used to be a patient here.

Receptionist: Are we in trouble?

Aidan: You must be new.

Receptionist: How'd you know?

Aidan: This clinic claims to have sent my client some documents, but he never received them.

Receptionist: What's your client's name?

Aidan: Ryan Lavery.

Ryan: What does a guy got to do to get a beer around this place?

Greenlee: How about an unconscious girl on the beach instead? It's our new house special.

Aidan: Do you remember sending any documents to Mr. Lavery?

Receptionist: I was hired on just last week.

Aidan: There must be some record of correspondence.

Receptionist: What kind of documents do you mean?

Aidan: They were related to a class action lawsuit being brought against the clinic.

Receptionist: We're being sued?

Aidan: Well, some of the procedures that Dr. Cooper claimed to have performed never happened.

Receptionist: Wow, I had no idea.

Aidan: This clinic told Mr. Lavery that they notified him by mail, but he never received any correspondence.

Receptionist: That's odd.

Aidan: We agree. Is there any chance you could look around, see if there's any records that might help clear this up?

Receptionist: Absolutely. I'm still getting the lay of the land, but as soon as I find anything, I'll give you a call.

Aidan: I really appreciate it.

Receptionist: I'm so sorry about this. I can't imagine that something so crazy could have happened.

Annie: Mommy and Daddy are going to have a baby.

Emma: A boy like Spike?

Annie: Well, we don't know yet, because the baby's still in mommy's tummy. But whether you have a baby sister or another baby brother, it's all a blessing. It means our family is growing, so there's more love for all of us.

Emma: Does Daddy love the baby?

Annie: Of course, he does. Of course, he does -- just like he loves you, and he loves Spike. I mean, we're going to be so, so happy together. And nothing's ever going to get in the way of that again.

Greenlee: So what's it going to be? A beer or a cocktail named after me?

Ryan: You are not naming a drink "Unconscious Girl at the Beach."

Greenlee: Too tacky? You're right. But we should immortalize you saving my life in some way. I would have died if it wasn't for you.

Ryan: How is the head?

Greenlee: In a very good place, actually. But I did get a call from some lawyer.

Ryan: About what?

Greenlee: Uh, he -- the guy that owns the boat thinks that I might sue him, so the attorney wanted to talk to both of us.

Ryan: Well, I'll be there for you if you need me.

Greenlee: I thought we could go in together and tell them the tale of you rescuing me.

Ryan: Kendall can turn it into a book, and we'll sell the movie rights.

Greenlee: "Hero races across the waves to save a woman who got knocked out by an evil sailboat. He brings her back from the brink of death, only to deliver her safely into the arms of the man she loves."

Ryan: Millions -- we'll make millions.

Greenlee: If you weren't there --

Ryan: I will always be there for you, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I know this is going to sound insane, but I'm glad it happened.

Ryan: You're glad that you got whacked in the head?

Greenlee: Yeah. You got your memory back, and I woke up and stopped wasting time. Before I got hit, I told Aidan that I wanted to be friends, and he was ok with that. He said that we could take as much time as we needed. So we agreed -- one day at a time, no pressure, no promises. I was a jerk until I got hit in the head and almost died again. And when I came to --

Ryan: You were totally clear on what you wanted.

Greenlee: Yeah. I realized I had this amazing future right in front of me and I wanted it to start -- now.

Ryan: Wow, it sounds like you and Aidan are on track all the way.

Greenlee: We're both committed to making it work.

Ryan: Well, I'm very impressed. I'm very proud of you. I mean, trusting again is not easy. It takes a lot of guts.

Greenlee: No, don't give me too much credit. I couldn't even speak the words, "I forgive you, Aidan." I had to write it down on giant cards. How incredibly lame is that?

Ryan: Just telling him how you really feel -- that's all that's really important.

Greenlee: It never gets easier, does it? Taking that risk -- telling someone what's in your heart?

Ryan: No, I don't think it does.

Greenlee: But this time, I think it's perfect.

Ryan: You know, I'm not sure I've ever seen you so happy.

Greenlee: I really am.

Ryan: Well, that's all I really want, Greenlee -- honestly. I just want you to be happy -- always.

Zach: I told you we should have called first.

Erica: Oh, no, don't be silly.

Zach: No --

Kendall: Well, well, Mom, you look absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure Jackson will be blown away. Blown away.

Erica: Ah.

[Knock on door]

Kendall: I'll get that.

Erica: Kendall --

Kendall: Samuel --

Samuel: Kendall.

Kendall: Mother?

Samuel: Um, these are for you.

Erica: How lovely. Thank you. Why don't you come in? You know my son-in-law, Zach Slater.

Samuel: Sure, I do. Good to see you again.

Zach: Hey, man. All right, we're off. You two enjoy your evening.

Erica: Oh, no, why don't you join us? You don't mind, do you, Samuel?

Kendall: Uh, no,-- no, Mom, we don't want to intrude.

Erica: Oh, don't be silly. We're just having dinner at the Valley Inn. I'll just have them add two more to the reservation.

Kendall: Oh, ok, let's put these in some water, ok? Yeah, let's do that.

Zach: Say the word, and we're gone.

Samuel: We're good. We're cool, thank you.

Zach: Yeah, really? My advice? Order room service. Because this is going to get crazy.

Erica: Yes, we'll be four for dinner. Oh, a table on the terrace -- that would be just lovely. Thank you so much. Ok, bye-bye. Ah, well, all set. What?

Kendall: You're going on a date with the man who put you in prison? Mom, I think that's a first even for you.

Erica: Samuel asked me for -- out to dinner. I thought it would be fun.

Kendall: Does that mean you're done having fun with Jackson?

Jackson: Where is she?

Carmen: She's right here. Hello, Jackie.

Erica: Why would having dinner with Samuel Woods mean that I'm done with Jackson? I'm never going to be done with Jack. We're just not together anymore, so I'm moving on.

Kendall: With Samuel Woods? Mother, the man made a public example of you to give his Senate campaign a boost. Have you completely forgotten that part?

Erica: I actually don't think that that was his motive anymore. And anyway, it's over and done. I'm free. I want to enjoy it.

Kendall: I think you're asking for trouble.

Erica: Why -- because I'm trying something new? Nothing wrong with that. In fact, I think it's essential.

Jackson: Carmen, have a seat.

Carmen: This is a pretty swanky place.

Jackson: Yeah, huh?

Carmen: I hope they have piña coladas.

Jackson: I'm pretty sure they have people ask. Listen, about your case. What we need to do is we need to postpone it for as long as we possibly can.

Carmen: Uh-huh.

Jackson: Yeah, so what I've done is I've gone to the judge, and I've asked him to move it as far into the future on his calendar as possible.

Carmen: Right.

Jackson: Right, because then we have the chance to show what a model citizen you are -- steady job --

Carmen: Jackie, aren't you going to say anything about my dress?

Jackson: Carmen, you look beautiful.

Erica: Anyway, I'm sure that Jack is doing his thing, and I'm doing mine -- which right now means getting out of this room. Hi. You ready?

Samuel: We are ready.

Erica: Ok.

Jake: Either you tell me right now or I'm taking you back to the hospital and putting you through a barrage of X-rays. I'm going to embarrass the pants off you.

Frankie: All right. I got into it with Randi's pimp. Relax, man, save the lecture. I just got into it with my dad.

Jake: Wow -- wow.

Frankie: The slime got out on bail, and I thought he was following my sister.

Jake: He was following your sister?

Frankie: Well, no, but he did follow Randi after he almost killed her. Come on, I can't let that ride. I had to protect her. I had to do something.

Jake: It's stupid, Frankie. Stupid.

Frankie: Why, because she's a prostitute?

Jake: No, because you're a doctor. What happens if you have permanent damage to your hands?

Frankie: I didn't.

Jake: But you could have. Look, as your mentor, do you mind if I just tell you a little cautionary tale?

Frankie: Oh, here we go.

Jake: There was a very famous -- almost famous pitcher in the minor leagues. They said he had a 148 mile an hour fastball. One night he goes out with his friends, right, to a bar, gets into a brawl, wrecks his arm, ruins his career, ruins his life. Is that what you want? Is it?

Frankie: Look, stop fronting like this is about my career. This is about how you feel about what Randi does.

Jake: I didn't say anything about what Randi does. I didn't say anything. I -- I used to have a mother-in-law who was a hooker.

Frankie: What?

Jake: Yeah, I'm not kidding. I was married to this girl named Emily Ann. She and her mother, Donna -- Donna was a high school dropout. Donna was going through some tough times. She was, you know, turning some tricks.

Frankie: You're serious?

Jake: Serious. Oh, well, the thing with Emily Ann, it didn't work out, because we were young, and we were stupid, but at the time, Donna was my family. I didn't have any judgment on Donna, and I'm not judging you. I'm just saying be smart.

Frankie: So in other words, stay away from Randi, right?

Jake: I'm saying I know you want to help the girl. I'm just saying slow down. You don't know anything about this girl.

[Doorbell rings]

Annie: I'll be right back, sweetheart. Aidan, hey, come on in. We were just playing penguins.

Aidan: Hi, Emma.

Emma: Hi.

Annie: So, what's up?

Aidan: I just thought I'd pop over, you know, see Ryan, take him out for a beer, raise a glass to the new baby.

Annie: Oh, that's very sweet, but he's actually not home.

Aidan: Oh, he's not? Oh, ok, another time, then. How are you feeling?

Annie: I'm good. I'm a little tired, but I'm good.

Aidan: I must say, you're really handling this extraordinarily well.

Annie: Thank you. Yeah, it's strange -- the good and the bad kind of balance each other out. I mean, my brother's dead. But now we're bringing a new life into the world.

Aidan: It's a lot to deal with, though.

Annie: Yeah, but I'm managing.

Aidan: Not alone, though, right?

Annie: What do you mean?

Aidan: Well, you couldn't pull off something this big without help.

Ryan: I mean it, Greenlee. You really, truly deserve everything that you want.

Greenlee: After three near-death experiences, I think so, too.

Ryan: Four, actually, if you count the trapeze on the roof of "Fusion."

Greenlee: I forgot about that. God, it seems so long ago, doesn't it?

Ryan: Yeah -- no, I don't know.

Greenlee: We were so different back then. You were so lost and angry, and I was trying to build a life that was so wrong. But look at us now. Sometimes it takes almost losing everything to know what really matters.

Ryan: Wow. Greenlee Smythe, you almost sound Zen.

[Greenlee laughs]

Greenlee: Freaky, right? I even scared myself the other day.

Ryan: Really, what happened? You almost gave away all of your material possessions?

Greenlee: Worse. I told my dad that if he wants Erica back, he should go for it.

Jackson: Carmen, listen to me. We want to make the best possible impression with this judge.

Carmen: How's Erica?

Jackson: Erica is Erica. She's just --

Carmen: Have you seen her since she got sprung?

Jackson: I'd like to go back to discussing your case. Can we do that, please?

Carmen: I bet that first kiss set off smoke alarms. No kiss?

Jackson: I'm Erica's attorney, Carmen. And I'm your attorney. And I would like to --

Carmen: Forget about me. You got to patch things up with your lady. She just got out of prison. Trust me, it won't be that hard.

Jackson: Erica and I are fine, ok? No drama, no excitement -- just the way I like it.

Maitre d': Ah, right this way, Ms. Kane.

Erica: Thank you.

[Paparazzi shouting]

Erica: Oh.

Carmen: Superstar! You did it, you're free! Everybody, guess who's here? Erica Kane. We were cellmates.

Erica: Carmen, it's wonderful seeing you, but I think everybody else would just like to return to dinner.

Carmen: I'm sorry, I got excited.

Erica: It's ok.

Carmen: Oh, is that your daughter? Hey.

Kendall: Hi.

Carmen: And that's her husband, right?

Erica: Mm-hmm.

Carmen: Sweet hunk of man. Oh, look, that's Sammy. Are you together?

Erica: Well, um, the four of us are having dinner together.

Carmen: Don't move. Let's go.

Jackson: Where?

Carmen: To keep the love of your life from getting away.

Randi: Hey, is your manager around?

Waitress: In the back.

Randi: I, um, I called about the ad for a waitress. He told me to come by for an interview.

Waitress: Wait right here.

Frankie: Look at her. She's applying for a job.

Jake: That's good, right?

Frankie: Man, look how nervous she is.

Jake: That's all right. She'll be all right.

Frankie: You don't get it, man. This is huge for her.

Manager: Who are you?

Randi: Hey, Randi Morgan. Um, I called about the ad for a waitress. You said to come by today.

Manager: Do you have any restaurant experience?

Randi: Uh, not exactly, but I'm a quick learner and I'm good with people, and I've got tons of energy.

Manager: Are you currently employed?

Frankie: Man, why he got to be grilling her like that?

Jake: Relax, ok?

Frankie: She doesn't like a whole bunch of questions thrown at her.

Jake: It's a job interview. What's the matter with you?

Frankie: Yeah, and it could be her ticket to a whole new life. She acts like she's tough, but just like everybody else, she could use some support, encouragement --

Jake: Love? Does she need some love?

Manager: You have no references, you have no experience, and you have no skills.

Randi: Um, well, I'll work really hard, and I promise I'll come in on time every day.

Manager: Take a tip, hon. You're a pretty girl. Hook a rich guy. You won't have to work.

Randi: I want to work.

Manager: Come back when you have something else to offer.

Jake: No, no, don't.

Erica: I'm thrilled to be home.

First paparazzo: Ms. Kane, over here.

Maitre d': Ok, that's enough.

Kendall: Ok, Mom, our table's ready.

Second paparazzo: Erica, what's the story with you and Samuel Woods?

Erica: Uh-huh.

Third paparazzo: Oh, nice, nice.

Jackson: Carmen, would you stop?

Carmen: Erica and Sammy are just friends, but if you don't get over there --

Jackson: Sit down.

Carmen: Come on --

Jackson: Sit down.

Carmen: Jackie, please, you have to do this.

Zach: I told you, man.

Samuel: Yeah, you did.

Zach: You probably get a lot of that at the campaign trail, huh?

Samuel: We kiss some babies, shake a few hands. This is a different level.

Jackson: All right. All right.

Erica: Thank you. Oh, excuse me. Hello, Jack.

Kendall: Hi, hey, hey.

Carmen: I have your next book right here. First book, "Charm." Second book, "Carm." Short for Carmen.

Kendall: Oh.

Jackson: You look very nice this evening.

Erica: Well, thank you. So does Carmen.

Jackson: Yeah, doesn't she look beautiful? We were actually discussing her new trial.

Erica: Over dinner? How cozy.

Jackson: So you and Sam, Kendall, Zach -- I didn't realize you all were so well-acquainted.

Erica: Oh, well, it was supposed to be just the two of us -- but then the two became four. Why not let the four become six?

Jackson: We'd be delighted.

Erica: I'll speak to the maitre d'.

Jackson: So I see you haven't broken your new toy yet.

Erica: I don't play with toys anymore.

Annie: Emma, sweetheart, will you go put on your PJs for Mommy? Thank you.

Emma: Ok, Mommy.

Annie: Ok. Um, so I'm sorry, what were you saying? I couldn't pull off what without help?

Aidan: I was saying, you know -- um, yeah, you've got a kid, you've got a job, you've got another baby on the way. And you just lost your brother.

Annie: What's your point?

Aidan: Well, you're dealing with a lot. I just thought you must have some kind of help. You know, a nanny or --

Annie: Oh, yeah -- yeah, I'll probably get somebody full time once the baby's born.

Aidan: You don't have anyone helping you out with Emma now?

Annie: Well, Corrina's here a lot.

Aidan: Anyone else?

Annie: Once in a while.

Aidan: Like who?

Annie: Why are you asking me this?

Aidan: I'm just curious.

Annie: Come on, Aidan. What do you really want to know?

Ryan: This new take on life that you have looks really good on you.

Greenlee: Really? Well, check this out. I forgave Kendall, too.

Ryan: I thought you guys looked pretty chummy. I knew it was only a matter of time before you found your way back.

Greenlee: Yeah, I can push her away and pretend I don't need her or love her in my life, but I do. I always will. You know?

Ryan: Yeah, I do know exactly what that feels like.

Greenlee: Have you hung out with her lately?

Ryan: With Kendall? Yeah, I've seen her.

Greenlee: Has she been acting kind of strange?

Ryan: Strange how?

Greenlee: I don't know -- evasive -- like she'll start something and then she pulls back. She's probably still weirded out about Richie.

Ryan: Yeah, probably.

Greenlee: And I have this feeling that she's not being straight with me, especially about you.

Ryan: You and Kendall talk about me behind my back? That is so completely not cool.

Greenlee: Ryan, I'm serious. Have you told Kendall something that you haven't told me?

Aidan: I'm not very good at this.

Annie: At what?

Aidan: Small talk. Yeah, with my Special Ops training, sometimes I come across like I'm interrogating someone. I'm sorry.

Annie: It's ok. So, how are things going with you? How's Greenlee?

Aidan: She gave us a bit of a scare recently. Luckily, Ryan was there to save the day.

Annie: Yeah, thank God for that, right? So, how are things going with you two?

Aidan: We're back together.

Annie: Oh, that's great. When's the wedding?

Aidan: We haven't really got back to the engagement part yet.

Annie: Oh, well, if you're really in love, I mean, why wait?

Aidan: If it was up to me, Annie, I'd get married tomorrow. But I'm kind of, you know, just waiting on Greenlee's lead.

Annie: Well, I bet Greenlee's secretly waiting for you to take the romantic lead. Trust me. You get that girl down the aisle.

Ryan: The Kendall-Greenlee rivalry is still going strong.

Greenlee: What are you talking about?

Ryan: You can't stand Kendall knowing something that you don't.

Greenlee: Does she?

Ryan: You are paranoid.

Greenlee: I am not.

Ryan: Yes, you are. You are just as competitive as ever.

Greenlee: Kendall's been trying to keep up with me for years.

Ryan: That is exactly what I am talking about.

Greenlee: Ok, ok, maybe I go a little nuts when it comes to you and Kendall. What can I say? Old habits die hard.

Ryan: Well, you have nothing to worry about.

Greenlee: You got your memory back, and you didn't even tell me.

Ryan: Because you were in the hospital.

Greenlee: So? You're one of my closest friends, Ryan. You can come to me anytime about anything.

Ryan: As long as I come to you before I go to Kendall.

Greenlee: You're right, you're right. I'm just a hopeless groupie that worships at the altar of the great god Ryan.

Ryan: As you should.

Greenlee: Worship you?

Ryan: Yes, absolutely.

Greenlee: That's true. I'm sitting right here, and I told Aidan that I'm still in love with you.

Ryan: Seriously?

Greenlee: No, oh, yeah. I told him that we were running off together.

Ryan: And how did that go over?

Greenlee: Well, you should have seen his face. For a second, I could swear that he thought I was serious. Funny, right?

Erica: Would everyone like a drink?

All: Yes.

Erica: Ok. One of your finest bottles of champagne, and I'll have a sparkling cider.

Carmen: And a piña colada -- extra shot, extra cherries, with an umbrella.

Waiter: Thank you.

Samuel: I had no idea there was a special pool of photographers dedicated solely to "Erica Kaneism."

Erica: Oh, I think that at least some of that pool is taking pictures of our senatorial candidate.

Carmen: I remember the picture of her last wedding.

Jackson: Carmen.

Carmen: It was in all the magazines. I put it up on my wall, so I could look at it every day.

Zach: That's funny. I did the same thing.

Kendall: Yeah, it was a very special day.

Carmen: Erica looked like a goddess. And Jackie? My God, so handsome. The two of them, all happy and in love under the banana tree.

Erica: Uh, banyan, actually. It was a banyan tree. So, um, Kendall, how are the boys?

Kendall: They are great. They're -- they're wonderful. Ian is getting so big, and our son Spike just turned 2.

Zach: Yeah, he's ready to be on the ice -- the hockey ice.

Erica: Actually, Samuel has a son -- André.

Samuel: Yeah. Yeah, he, uh -- he loves hockey. He can't play for diddly, but he does love the game.

Jackson: How does he feel about his dad running for public office?

Samuel: Oh, man, um, he's pretty supportive. But I think -- I think he knows that family comes first.

Kendall: Yeah, well, having a famous parent -- the publicity can get intense.

Carmen: Yeah, like when they take pictures of you throwing out your garbage.

Jackson: Yeah, well, the paparazzi -- they, uh -- they expose everything.

Erica: Well, I mean, they see a sexy story, and they just have to run with it.

Zach: Let's get out of here.

Kendall: No, wait. Now? No, no, no. My mother is in rare form.

Zach: Ok, well, you know, I think she probably wants some privacy.

Kendall: Are you kidding me? There's two men fighting over her in public. She eats this stuff up.

Zach: All right. We leave before the bloodshed. Deal?

Kendall: Deal.

Randi: Wait.

Jake: Take it easy, take it easy. Have your beer, all right?

Frankie: Look, I can't let him talk to her like that.

Jake: Well, if you go over there, you're going to embarrass her, ok? And she's going to get pissed off at you.

Frankie: Come on, man, I got to do something.

Jake: What, you going to go and beat him up? Just let it -- let it take its course. It's like a learning curve. She'll do better on the next --

Frankie: Next time? Well, her confidence is so low there may not be a next time. She could be out on the streets tonight.

Jake: You know what? We're very similar, you and me. We're kind of the take-charge kind of guys. Would you -- would you agree with that?

Frankie: Yeah.

Jake: All right. So we have this idea in our head that when we have an idea, everybody else should follow that idea, because we think it's the best idea. But it's not always the best. Sometimes the best idea is just to do nothing.

Frankie: So tell me this, Jake. Is there a time where you did nothing?

Jake: Yes, plenty of times. Sometimes it's best to say nothing, too.

Carmen: Switch seats with me so you can sit next to Montyummy.

Kendall: What did you call him?

Erica: Oh, uh, Carmen has come up with very creative nicknames.

Carmen: He's Sexy Sammy.

Samuel: Hmm.

Carmen: Oops.

Jackson: That would make a great bumper sticker.

Samuel: Well, thank you, Jack. I like the way you think.

Kendall: You need a nickname.

Zach: No, I really don't.

Kendall: Yeah, you do.

Erica: Actually, Carmen's good friends always called her Sugar.

Carmen: My mother started that when I was little. Back then, I used to dream of growing up and falling in love, just like Erica and Jackie.

Kendall: Where did you grow up?

Carmen: In a dump. But even then, I used to dream of a prince coming and taking me away to his castle and living happily ever after, and not messing it up.

Kendall: Have I mentioned how -- how pretty you look tonight?

Carmen: It's all thanks to Superstar. She taught me about makeup and fashion and confidence.

Jackson: And you do. You look absolutely stunning.

Carmen: That's what Erica said when she gave me my makeover at the warehouse superstore. Remember? She said I look stunning, and that was the only weapon I ever need. Right?

Erica: Right.

Annie: I will tell Ryan you stopped by.

Aidan: Yeah, tell Ryan congrats on the baby. I'm really happy for the both of you.

Annie: Thank you. It really is a miracle. See you.

Greenlee: Thank you. So, enough about me. Let's talk about you.

Ryan: I got nothing for you.

Greenlee: You just got the last four years of your life back.

Ryan: That's true. I guess there's always that.

Greenlee: It's incredible. You're finally not stuck in the past, and you can move forward and be happy. You are happy?

Ryan: Tell you what -- I'm going to become a weatherman.

Greenlee: A weatherman.

Ryan: Yes, a weatherman, and this is what's going to happen. I'm going to learn symbols for all the different types of weather, you know, like sun, rain, clouds. And then, you know, each day I'll hold them up, and you'll know what I'm feeling, and you won't have to ask me.

Greenlee: Hmm. So if I asked you, "How's Annie?" What sign would I get?

Ryan: Things with Annie are good.

Greenlee: That's it? Good? What is that, partly cloudy? Ryan, you just found out that you're going to have a baby. How do you feel about that?

Ryan: That, you know -- it's a surprise, obviously. But then, Emma and Spike were a surprise, too, and I love them more than anything else in the world. I love being a dad.

Greenlee: What about being Annie's husband?

Ryan: It's complicated right now, you know? It's not perfect. But we're working on it.

Greenlee: So you're ok?

Ryan: The forecast is good.

Greenlee: I'm serious, Ryan. I need to hear you say it. I need to know that you're happy.

Ryan: I'm happy.

Greenlee: You and Annie belong together. You know that.

Ryan: When you were pregnant with our child, and I took off, it was without question the biggest mistake of my life. And, um -- I'm never going to do that again. I'm never going to be that cruel or selfish ever again. I'm going to be here for my family. They need me. My kids need me.

Greenlee: What about what you need?

Zach: Let's get out of here. Kiss the boys goodnight.

Kendall: Can we stay just a little bit longer?

Zach: You've got to make it worth my while.

Kendall: Two words -- "me," "trenchcoat."

Zach: Ok, sure.

Kendall: Good. Does that work? Give me some sugar.

Carmen: Don't stress, Jackie. Erica will be right back. She just went to put powder on her nose.

Jackson: You know, it's been a very interesting evening, but I think I'm going to go.

Carmen: You can't. Who's going to drive Erica home? Where's Sammy?

Samuel: There you are.

Erica: Hello. Are you having a good time?

Samuel: Yes. Yeah, I'm -- honestly, I was looking forward to spending more time just with you.

Erica: I'm so sorry about the photographers.

Samuel: No, no, no. I get that, I get that. I understand. I'm a fan, too.

Erica: Well, why don't we finish dinner, and then we could have dessert alone?

Samuel: You know what? You -- you catch up with your friends and family, and we'll do this some other time.

Erica: Don't go.

Samuel: Another time.

Jake: No, no.

Frankie: Hey.

Jake: Let her go, let her go, let her go.

Frankie: I've got to make sure she's all right, Jake.

Jake: No, you call her then later today and you say, "How did it go? How was your day today?" That's what you do. And then, whatever, you ask her out.

Frankie: Wait. Like a date?

Jake: Well, yeah. Call it whatever you want to call it. A date, sure. Ask her to dinner. That's what you do, right? When you ask somebody to dinner, you want to spend some time with them because you're into them, right?

Frankie: Right. Well, wow. You're actually the first person who thinks it's ok for me to, you know, spend time with her.

Jake: I am just such a headache. Please -- just -- I'm just asking you to be smart.

Frankie: Well, uh, thanks. I appreciate that, you being cool with me, uh, you know, giving this a shot.

Jake: Like you weren't going to do it anyway. And I understand -- she's gorgeous.

Frankie: Yeah.

Ryan: What is tomorrow's forecast for Mexico?

Greenlee: You didn't answer my question. What do you need?

Ryan: What is tomorrow's forecast for Mexico? Chili today, hot tamale.

Greenlee: That is beyond bad. That is awful.

Ryan: What is worse than raining buckets? Hailing taxis. You see? That's exactly what I need right there.

Greenlee: What? To tell stupid weather jokes?

Ryan: No, to see a smile on your beautiful face.

Greenlee: Well, that's what I want for you, too -- an amazing future with Annie. I'm rooting for you guys. I really am.
