Randi: Hey.

Amanda: Hey.

Randi: So, we've already started getting ConFusion all decked out for the announcement party. You excited?

Amanda: Uh, excited, nervous, scared-crazy. I've got a lot riding on this perfume, like my entire stock portfolio.

Randi: Yeah, I'm kind of nervous, too, actually. It's my first big company party. I hope I do ok.

Amanda: Just make the rounds, introduce yourself as the new Fusion team member, pump up Bella to everyone you meet, smile, and be your gorgeous self.

Kendall: Don't you think you're rushing things, throwing a party for this new idea already?

Amanda: It's just a presser, a teaser to announce Bella.

Kendall: No focus groups, no research, no input from anyone but yourselves on this little dime-store perfume, and you're already holding a presser to announce the name?

Amanda: Yeah.

Kendall: This is going to be an expensive lesson for you. Oh, and, uh, make sure tonight's rental charges for ConFusion go on the Bella expense account.

Amanda: Of course. You are coming, aren't you?

Kendall: Of course, I wouldn't miss it. This may be your multimillion-dollar crap shoot, but it's still my company.

Amanda: Sucks the oxygen right out of the room, doesn't she?

Erica: Ryan? Hi. What a surprise. It's wonderful to see you. I haven't seen you in such a long time.

Ryan: Yeah. Hi, Erica, how are you?

Erica: Oh, I'm -- I'm fine.

Ryan: Good.

Erica: Hey, what happened to you? Are you all right?

Ryan: Oh, this? Yeah, no, it looks worse than it feels.

Erica: Ok. Is the rest of you all right?

Ryan: Yeah, um, I just, uh, I guess I came out here to try and remind myself what's supposed to be important in life.

Erica: It's funny. That's why I came out here, too. So, you want to, uh, save me some sunscreen and fill me in?

Ryan: Man, do I wish I could. Really, I've been out here for the better part of an hour, and I think all I've gotten is a little but more sand in my shoes.

Erica: Well, see, there was your first mistake. You're supposed to go barefoot.

Ryan: Ah. Annie moved out.

Erica: I'm sorry.

Ryan: And she took Emma with her, and she's pregnant and, honestly, I don't know what the hell I'm going to do about it.

Carmen: Hello.

Annie: Hi.

Carmen: Why, hello there, pretty girl.

Annie: You're Carmen, right?

Carmen: Yeah, and you're Annie. Babe told me to expect you coming. Come in. Come in.

Annie: Hey.

Babe: Hey. I wish you would've called me last night.

Annie: Oh, it was kind of a spur-of-the-moment. We spent last night in a hotel.

Babe: Well, you know what? We've got plenty of rooms here, and Little Adam is very excited that you're going to be visiting.

Annie: Are you sure this is all right?

J.R.: Absolutely. Like Babe said, we have lots of rooms.

Carmen: Do you want to go visit Little Adam? He's having breakfast and we made blueberry muffins. Mmm! I bet we have more than a few left.

Annie: Go on.

Adam: What's going on? Oh, what are you doing here?

J.R.: Annie and Emma are going to be our guests for a few days.

Adam: What?

Carmen: Don't be a jerk.

J.R.: I'll take your bags upstairs.

Annie: Thank you. Uh, Ryan and I, um -- I moved out last night, and Babe and J.R. were kind enough to let us stay here until I figure out what to do next.

Babe: Listen, you take all the time you need, ok? You're among friends here. Isn't that right, Adam? I've got to get in to work, but I'll call you later, ok?

Annie: All right. Thank you.

Babe: You're welcome.

Annie: Thank you, all.

Adam: Did you even make a half-hearted attempt to dissuade Babe from turning my home into Hotel Chandler again?

J.R.: Oh, come on, Dad. Annie's kid is almost Little A's age, and her husband just told her he doesn't love her anymore. Why don't you cut her some slack?

Adam: Her brother -- her brother kidnapped you, stole your bone marrow, and gave you a healthy dose of hepatitis.

J.R.: Yeah, and her brother's dead.

Adam: Yes, giving me more headaches than I care to count.

J.R.: Well, she'll be out of your hair in just a few days.

Adam: Um, what, uh, what dirt do you have on Fusion Green?

J.R.: Well, it's a dry well so far. I'm supposed to be getting a call from my P.I. today, but if he can't come up with anything, I just might have another way that we can get what we want.

Adam: Oh, good. It's always good to have an option.

Amanda: Well, it's a pretty good turnout for a last-minute event.

Kendall: Of course, it is. It's Fusion. Just don't embarrass us by disappointing them.

[Babe sighs]

Babe: Sorry I'm late, minor crisis at home. Kendall?

Kendall: Well, if it isn't Miss Bella herself. I was just telling Amanda, I hope you have all of your bases covered. Holding a press party for a half-baked idea is pretty reckless. It could end up giving our company a black eye.

Babe: I think we've done a hell of a job in a short amount of time. RSVPs?

Amanda: About 90%. The presentation is ready to go. All we need to do is drop in the photo.

Babe: Perfect.

Kendall: Where's miss "I quit my job and now I want it back"?

Babe: She's dealing with more important things today. She left Ryan last night. She and Emma are going to be staying at the mansion until she can figure out what to do.

Erica: Are you still in love with Annie?

Ryan: Honestly, I don't know if I ever really was.

Erica: What about the pregnancy?

Ryan: I think, um -- I think that was just Annie's way of trying to keep things afloat. You know, I -- I didn't actually know that I could still have kids, and Annie found out that I could and didn't tell me about it.

Erica: Look, don't misunderstand me. I'm not condoning what she did but I can somewhat understand where she's coming from.

Ryan: I know. You know, me, too. I mean, I know what you mean. It's been very tough on her lately with everything that's been going on, me losing my memory, her losing Julia, her brother messing with her head, and then, of course, him being murdered.

Erica: Ryan, so many men would be furious.

Ryan: Just, when she walked out with Emma, you know, it killed me. It really killed me, my little girl, you know? It's bad enough that I -- I wasn't there for Emma most of her life, and she finally accepted me as her father and now, all of a sudden, I'm going to be gone again. You know, I'm not going to be living with her, and I just -- I don't know how I'm going to explain that to her.

Erica: You will. You will, Ryan. You will find the right words. I know you will. I mean, honestly, I've known a lot of men, Ryan, and very, very few can come even close to you.

Ryan: I wouldn't be surprised if Annie decided to leave Pine Valley altogether.

Erica: Why would she do that?

Ryan: Well, I -- I made life really complicated for her. Um -- it -- it wasn't just the fact that I'm not in love with her anymore that made her move out.

Erica: You're not still in love with Greenlee, are you? Ryan, you know I love you. You know I want you to be happy. I want you to be with someone who makes you happy, but there's no way that's going to be Greenlee.

Ryan: You're right. You're right about that. It's not going to be Greenlee. It can't be. I mean, she's in love with Aidan and, um, she's very, very happy being married to him.

Erica: Well, God help Aidan. Is -- is he the one who -- yeah, yeah, I thought so.

[Erica sighs]

Erica: I wish I had some answers for you.

[Erica sighs]

Erica: And I know it's especially hard when there are such little children involved.

Kathy: Is that good?

Krystal: Yeah, looks like you're getting the hang of it.

Tad: Good? Looks like you guys are doing great.

Angie: Hey, hey.

Tad: Hey.

Angie: All right, break time, everybody. Brownies are on the table.

Krystal: Brownies.

Tad: Ooh.

Krystal: Ooh, you want one with a gooey center? Ok, well, we'd better hurry up before your daddy beats us to it.

Tad: Yeah, don't help.

[Krystal chuckles]

Angie: Kathy seems in good spirits.

Tad: Yeah, she does.

Angie: Oh, look at you.

Tad: What?

Angie: You're a mess.

Tad: Yeah? I guess you're right on both counts, sweetheart. She's doing great. I'm so relieved. I swear, for the longest time, I didn't know if she was going to adjust, but she seems like she's doing ok.

Angie: Oh, I'm so glad.

Tad: Yeah.

Angie: And you seem happy, too.

Tad: It's all good.

[Angie laughs]

Tad: It's all good.

Krystal: Ok, Kathy picked out two brownies, but she wants you to choose the one you want.

Tad: Ah, yeah, well, you know what they say, those career decisions.

Angie: Daddy's little girl, huh?

Erica: When a parent's there one day and then gone the next --

Ryan: Just, if it wasn't for Emma and spike and the little baby on the way, I probably would be on a sailboat to just about anywhere right now.

Erica: Oh, Ryan, you have to keep Annie from leaving town. I mean, those children need you. You're their father, even if you're not there all the time.

Ryan: You know, if -- if Annie did decide to -- to leave, it would be because she's running from me. So, if I went after her, she probably would just end up running even further away.

Erica: Well, then you have to keep her in town, you have to. Because the worst thing in the world is for those children to ever think that their father abandoned them.

Ryan: You know I would never let that happen.

Erica: I know, and that's good. That's really good. I'm sorry, Ryan. I'm so sorry. You deserve so much better than this.

Ryan: I'll find out -- find a way to make it work out.

Erica: I'm sure you will. And that makes me very happy, because it would break my heart to think of you on a sailboat halfway to anywhere else.

Kendall: I'm sorry for what Ryan must be going through.

Amanda: Yeah, another relationship bites the dust, must be something in the water around here.

Randi: The art department just got finished with Bella's artwork.

Babe: Oh, great, let's take a look.

Amanda: Uh, yeah, hey, listen. All right, so the art department came up with an alternate pick to use, so -- so we kind of have to decide.

Babe: But we only sent the one picture down there. Where did they get another one?

Amanda: Yeah, well, but the guys just kind of whipped something up and, uh, sort of thought we should have a choice.

Babe: All right, let's -- let's take a look.

Amanda: All right. Here we go. Ok.

Babe: Oh, that -- that turned out really cute. I -- I don't look terrible. All right, let's -- let's see the other one.

Amanda: Ok.

Kendall: Incoming.

Adam: I know it must be difficult for you right now, leaving your husband and all. But, on the other hand, it does give us a perfect cover for planning the takeover of Fusion.

[Carmen eavesdrops]

Adam: You are still planning to help me?

Annie: Yeah. I just, uh -- I just need a little bit of time to get my daughter through these first few difficult days and then, yeah, I'm more than willing to help you.

Adam: Excellent. You're welcome to stay as long as you need.

Annie: Thank you.

Richie: Ha-ha, well done, sis. I mean, you got yourself a nice crib to stay in, a plan to get revenge on those bitches -- Greenlee and Kendall, God. And clever move, walking out on the Ry-guy like that, I like that. It was good.

Annie: Was it?

Richie: Oh, yeah. I mean, at least you're not playing the victim anymore. I don't know if he's going to come crawling back like you planned but, hey, you're in the game. And if you want your pawn to become a queen, you got to move it down the board. Gutsy gambit, my dear.

Annie: Maybe -- or it might have lost me Ryan forever.

Tad: Where's your -- where's your mommy doll?

Kathy: I don't know. I lost her.

Angie: And so, you know, we've, you know, sort of, uh, found ourselves in this very comfortable groove. You know, where we, uh, both go to work in the morning and then, you know, we relish end of the day when we come home for dinner and just snuggle up on the couch, watch a good movie. Then on weekends, it's all about the two of us.

Krystal: Hmm. I'm so happy for you. I mean, being apart for 20 years, I just -- I can't imagine.

Angie: I can't, either. But, you know, it's still the elephant in the room, though. As a matter of fact, I asked Jesse about it the other day, you know, about what he did all of those years. It sort of, I don't know, just kind of popped out, and he looked quite surprised when I asked him.

Krystal: Well, what did he say?

Angie: He didn't. He just sort of shut down and, you know, I really didn't mean to -- to press, because he's told me before that he really didn't want to talk about it. And, you know, I don't even know that I even want to know about those years. But then I realized that I'm going to have to at some point, because it will always be there, like this curtain hanging between us.

Krystal: Well, give him time and enjoy each other. I'm -- I'm sure he'll want to talk about it when the time is right.

Angie: Hope so.

Babe: I'm sure the boys love the way you're spilling out of that dress, too, but our target buyers aren't horny ad copy guys.

Amanda: I though it was a damn good picture of me.

Babe: It is a good picture, but the perfume is named after me.

Amanda: Well, I'm paying for it.

Babe: What do you think?

Randi: Oh. Oh, no. See, I may be new around here, but I'm smart enough to know I'm not choosing sides. I think they're both hot.

Babe: Kendall?

Kendall: Hmm?

Babe: What photo do you think we should go with for the announcement?

Kendall: You know what? This is your baby, so I think you two should make the decision.

Erica: Hi.

Kendall: Hi. As a matter of a fact, why don't we ask my beautiful mother?

Erica: Ask me what?

Kendall: Well, Babe and Amanda have come up with a new fragrance, and they're trying to decide the ad photo.

Erica: Well, uh, exactly what is it you're selling? I mean, who exactly is your target audience?

Babe: Well, the name is Bella, and it's targeted to the less affluent woman who wants a luxury-priced scent but can't afford to spend the money that our upper-end products cost.

Amanda: And the woman who doesn't want to go to the select boutique department stores to find it. It would have a more widespread distribution.

Erica: Widespread distribution. Cheap and easy. Tough call but I'd say I'd have to go with Babe at that point.

Kendall: You know, uh, Mom, I'd hate to go against your instincts, but I think, um, part of the appeal for a perfume is how it will attract men. Now, I think if we take that photo of Amanda and put it outside on an easel, guys will be all over it like fruit flies on a rotten peach. Ready for lunch?

Erica: Absolutely.

Kendall: Ok. Toodles.

[Babe sighs]

Amanda: Uh, all right, all right, we said we were in this together, that means debating and discussing the decisions we have to make together. So, let's discuss and debate.

Babe: Do whatever you want to, Amanda. Your picture looks great, and you're right, it's your money. I'll be back later.

[Amanda laughs]

Erica: I see what you mean about things getting out of control at work.

Kendall: Yeah, big mistake. Hey, Donald, we're going to have two for lunch.

Donald: Ok.

Kendall: But, anyway, Greenlee insisted on letting them run with it.

Erica: Well, when Bella crashes and burns, you will have taught your employees a very important lesson -- leave the big ideas to the people who made the company a success in the first place. What is it?

[Kendall sighs]

Kendall: Uh, you know what? I have got to get my priorities in order. On the one hand, it's driving me crazy that I have to let Babe and Amanda do this whole campaign. I've ended up twiddling my thumbs at work, just waiting for the whole Bella thing to implode.

Erica: Hmm.

Kendall: But then, on the other hand, I couldn't even go away and spend some alone time with Zach, just for a few days. And he was not happy with me.

Erica: Did you fight about it?

Kendall: No, not really. He just sort of shut down on me. He does that sometimes.

Erica: Well, I mean, if Zach thought that you needed time alone together, I'm sure he had his reasons.

Kendall: Well, he knows me. He'll get over it.

Erica: No, Kendall, don't blow it off like that. Really, do not dismiss it. Men don't wear their hearts on their sleeves. I mean, if you want to get something out of them, it's like pulling teeth. And if something's eating at them, I mean, you won't even know it unless you can get them to open up. And if you don't, I mean, they might just run off and do something crazy. For example, you might just wake up one morning and find your husband in bed with Carmen.

Pete: Good day. Oh, you must be the Chandler's majordomo.

Carmen: Uh, I work here, yeah.

Pete: I'm Pete Cortlandt. You'll be seeing a lot of me.

Carmen: Hiya, Pete. I'm Carmen.

Pete: Would you mind telling Miss Chandler I'm here to see her?

Colby: What are you doing here?

Pete: Thanks anyway, Carmen. I just came to see how you're doing, this beautiful summer day.

Colby: Um, go away.

Pete: And to find out if you're going to the Fusion party tonight.

Colby: Maybe, maybe not.

Adam: Uh, well, how are you doing, young man?

Pete: Fine, sir, thank you. And you?

Adam: Uh, great, just great, just great. Um, what are you two up to today?

Colby: Uh, nothing, I'm not doing anything with him.

Pete: I just came by to see if Colby was going to the ConFusion event tonight, sir.

Adam: Well, I'm sure you were planning to go, weren't you, Colby?

Colby: Dad --

Pete: And I -- I was wondering if she needed a date.

Colby: No. Nope, I'm going with Babe and J.R.

Adam: I'm sure she wouldn't mind you going with her, um, would you, sweetheart?

Colby: Yes, I would. Dad, why are you encouraging him like this? You hate everything Cortlandt.

Pete: I think it's time we buried that old family hatchet. What do you say, C-man?

Adam: Yes, you've tried to get me to be more forgiving.

Colby: Me partying with this loser won't accomplish that.

Adam: No?

Colby: Sorry.

Pete: No offense taken, but aren't you concerned that showing up to the party without a date tonight is going to brand you with the same?

Colby: No, no, I'm -- I'm concerned that someone might take a picture of us, instant Internet joke.

Pete: Don't you think Colby should reconsider, sir? In the spirit of rapprochement, you know, for the families.

Adam: Uh, Tad and Pete are half brothers, you know?

Colby: No, as in "no"!

Adam: Um, you could come as our guest.

Colby: I heard that.

Pete: Thank you, sir. I'll be here to pick her up half an hour before the event.

Adam: Watch it, kid. My stomach can only take so much.

Pete: Good day, then, sir. All right. Huh.

[Knock on door]

Adam: Oh, oh, now -- now, what do you want? Yeah. Oh.

Ryan: Adam, I need to speak with Annie, please.

Richie: Pawn to queen's bishop five, ha-ha! Looks like you're getting there, sis.

Adam: I don't know whether she'll want to see you or not, Lavery.

Annie: It's ok, Adam. Thank you.

Annie: What do you want?

Ryan: Well, I just wanted to come to see how you were doing, how Emma was doing.

Annie: How do you think she's doing?

Ryan: Have you told her about what our situation is right now?

Annie: Not yet. I'm going to. I just need time to get my head straight. So, in the meantime I really think you should just go.

Ryan: Ok. Look, you know what, Annie, I --

Annie: Wait -- please, Ryan, just go.

Emma: Daddy!

Ryan: Hey. Oh! Hi.

Carmen: Sorry. I fixed lunch for her, and she just wouldn't --

Emma: Daddy!

Ryan: Yeah, hi.

Erica: Thank you.

Kendall: Jackson and Carmen? Really?

Erica: Who knows what happened?

Kendall: So, how do you feel about that?

Erica: Me? Well, they're adults. I mean, Jackson and I are divorced. Doesn't bother me. It surprises me, yes. But it doesn't bother me.

Kendall: Uh-huh.

Erica: All right, maybe it does, just a little. But after everything Jack and I have been to each other, I don't think that's anything but natural.

Kendall: Mom, tell me how you really feel. I mean, do you want Jackson back, or is it Samuel that you want? Of course, you want them both.

Erica: That's silly.

Kendall: No, no, it isn't, not for you. But come on, Mom. You have to see that's not going to work. Jack is not going to wait around while you have some fling with a handsome, potential senator.

Erica: No, look. I don't expect Jackson to do anything except what makes him happy.

Kendall: Well, that's good. But if you don't want to see him be with somebody permanently, then you've got to let him know how you really feel. Let him know that you still love him.

Krystal: Ok. I've got the bananas on there. What else did your mommy used to make your favorite sandwich?

Kathy: Grape jelly.

Krystal: Grape jelly it is. Grape jelly coming up. All right. There you go. Ooh, that's a lot.

[Krystal chuckles]

Krystal: What next?

Kathy: Marshmallows.

Tad: Marshmallows?

Krystal: Ah.

[Tad chuckles]

Tad: Oh, God! We're going to be scraping you off the ceiling.

Krystal: No, no, that's ok. That's what makes special sandwiches --

Tad: Oh, it's special all right.

Krystal: Very special. It is.

Tad: [As Forrest Gump] It's special, Jenny.

Krystal: It's hard to spread that marshmallow. I'll just cut it for you. There you go. Ooh. Sweetie.

Kathy: You cut it wrong.

Krystal: What?

Kathy: Mommy didn't cut triangles.

Angie: Oh, honey, that's ok. It's going to taste just as good, I promise.

Kathy: But that's not how she made it.

Krystal: Ok. You know what? We got more bread. I will make you another one right now.

Kathy: No, thank you. I'm not hungry anymore.

J.R.: Ok. No, no, just messenger it over. Thanks.

[Adam sighs]

Adam: Lavery just showed up. This house is beginning to look more and more like a really bad reality show. Any word from your P.I.?

J.R.: That was just him. They can't find any dirt on Fusion Green. Kendall and Greenlee aren't taking any shortcuts. Every component is environmentally friendly. There's no third-world sweatshops. I just don't think we're going to be able to take them down that way.

Adam: You said you had another idea.

J.R.: Yeah, a new product that Babe is launching at Kendall's opposition.

Adam: Oh? What's that?

J.R.: It's a product called Bella. It's targeted to the middle-to-lower-income customers. I think it's going to be a big hit, and if it's as successful as I think it's going to be, it's going to put her in the catbird seat over there. We may not have to get dirty in order to make our move.

Adam: So, we make it quite clear that Greenlee and Kendall were staunchly opposed to Babe's big success and then let the retailers and the distributors push for the buyout.

J.R.: Mm-hmm. Or -- Babe can prove herself to Kendall and Greenlee from the inside.

Adam: That's a good idea.

J.R.: Really?

Adam: Well, why do you sound so surprised.

J.R.: Well, I don't usually expect you to endorse me so quickly.

Adam: Well, I guess I have to trust your instincts a little more, my son.

J.R.: Thanks.

Adam: Yeah. You keep me posted on this.

J.R.: Yeah.

Adam: Ok? Uh, what are they calling it?

J.R.: Bella -- um, as in Babe -- Arabella.

[Adam chuckles]

Adam: That's good. I like the sound of it. That's very good. I'll go with your gut on this one, buddy.

Emma: You have ouchies?

Ryan: Oh, they don't hurt so bad.

Emma: Are we going home now?

Ryan: Um --

Annie: Come here, baby.

Ryan: Let's sit down here for a second.

Annie: Ok.

Ryan: Great.

[Annie sighs]

Annie: Uh, sweetie, your mommy and daddy --

Ryan: Um, sweetheart, things are going to be a little bit different now. Ok? Um, your mommy and daddy aren't going to be living together anymore.

Emma: No! You said you would never leave again. You crossed your heart.

Ryan: I'm -- I'm not leaving. I -- I'm not leaving. I'm in your life, and I'm staying in your life. Ok? Where we're living is the only thing that's going to change for us.

Emma: Why?

Ryan: Well, it's -- it's a little bit complicated. Ok? But it's important that you know it has absolutely nothing to do with you. Ok? You are the best girl in the whole world -- the best girl in the whole world, and your mommy and I are going to do everything that we have to do to make sure that you -- you see us as much as you want, ok? And for now, you're going to be living with Mommy.

Emma: Don't you love Mommy anymore?

Ryan: You know, the important thing is, is that you know we both love you so much. That is never, ever, ever going to stop.

Erica: Look, I appreciate the advice, I really do, but I don't still want Jack, and I'm not jealous of Carmen. And whatever happened, it's not going to last.

Kendall: I don't know. Carmen's turned out to be a pretty interesting woman, and she seems to be handling Adam Chandler just fine.

Erica: Oh, Adam Chandler. Adam Chandler is just plain annoying and he's getting more annoying by the day.

Kendall: Why? What has he done to you?

Erica: Believe me, you don't want to know.

J.R.: Hey. You back so soon? What's wrong?

Babe: As if I didn't have enough problems as it is with Kendall hoping that I fall flat on my face with Bella, Amanda decided to use her photo instead of mine for the ad campaign.

J.R.: Well, wait a sec. So, you don't have a say in this?

Babe: Yeah, but she's putting up all the money for it. So, I couldn't fight too hard. It just -- it burns my butt.

J.R.: Hey, don't let it get to you. Ok? Keep your eye on the big picture. You're on the verge of major success. Besides, I didn't really like the idea of seeing your face all over those bus benches and billboards, because I want it all to myself.

Babe: I just -- I have to make sure that this thing works or else my whole career is toast.

J.R.: Look, it's going to be huge. Bella -- just saying that name turns me on.

Babe: J.R. Oh. Don't do this again.

J.R.: Bella, Bella, Bella.

Angie: We'll call you tomorrow.

Krystal: Ok. Thanks for the decorating tips.

Angie: Oh, anytime.

Tad: I'm just going to walk her out.

Krystal: Ok. Oh, sleepy girl, sleepy girl.

Angie: You make sure that you don't let Krystal beat herself up, ok? Kathy will come around.

Tad: I know. I know. I love you.

Angie: Love you, too.

Tad: See you later, now.

[Car starts]

Tad: Excuse me? Hi.

Ryan: So you make sure that you're a brave little girl, ok? And you do whatever Mom says, ok? It's going to be -- oh, thank you. It's going to be ok. All right? It's going to be ok. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Annie: All right. Come on.

Ryan: Ok. Got her?

Annie: Mm-hmm.

J.R.: You know, I told my dad about Bella and if it hits the way that I think it's going to, it's going to help you move up in the industry and the company and up the Fusion ladder without any backstabbing.

Babe: Did he diss me as usual?

J.R.: No. He thought it was a good idea.

Babe: Well, what do you know? You don't look happy.

J.R.: He was so easy to convince.

Babe: Maybe he's finally starting to listen to you.

J.R.: Maybe. Or maybe he has something up his sleeve.

Adam: Is the Lavery melodrama over now?

Annie: Yeah. Ryan left. He's gone. He told Emma about the separation.

Adam: I'm sorry. I know firsthand what that can do to a child.

Annie: Yeah, well, Emma's been through it before, and she's a tough little girl, so --

Adam: Yeah.

Annie: So, tell me. What do you have in store for the big Fusion party?

Adam: It's going to be a blast.

Annie: And?

Adam: All you need to know is that, um, this will lead to Greenlee and Kendall's downfall.

Erica: Adam Chandler has just been a colossal pain lately.

Kendall: What's he done?

Erica: Ugh. Delighting in sticking his nose in other people's business where it doesn't belong. I mean, even with Jackson and Carmen.

Kendall: Why does he even care?

[Erica sighs]

Erica: Well, he is professing that he and I were the -- the greatest pair since Samson and Delilah. I mean, he's actually seriously trying to make me believe he's trying to seduce me again.

Kendall: You're kidding.

Erica: No. I wish. I mean, he's just like some pest that won't go away.

Kendall: I love it. This is great. I love this. You know what you need to do? You call his bluff. Tell him that you think you should get married again. That would be lucky number three for you guys.

Erica: Not funny. I wouldn't be with Adam Chandler again if he were the last man on earth. And even then I would explore alternative life forms on other planets. You know, for some reason, Adam Chandler has decided that he likes to torment me. Well, if he keeps it up, he's going to find himself on the business end of the wrath of Erica Kane.

[Erica sighs]
