Greenlee: I'm sorry about our honeymoon. We'd still be sipping on umbrella drinks, if I hadn't gotten sick.
Aidan: Just because we're back doesn't mean our honeymoon has to end.
Greenlee: Mmm. I love the way you think.
Kendall: Shouldn't you be doing that on a beach somewhere?
Greenlee: I'll catch up with you.
Greenlee: I'll see you at home?
Aidan: You want to do lunch?
Greenlee: I know exactly what I want.
Aidan: Oh, really?
Amanda: Thanks for the lift.
Jake: My pleasure.
Amanda: Bye, Aidan.
Aidan: See you.
Aidan: You all right?
Jake: I feel like I'm in no man's land.
Aidan: Yeah, you've got that right.
Jake: Press the button. Let's get out of here. Press it again.
Kendall: So. How was the honeymoon? I mean, really.
Ryan: Ok, are you ready for the best pancakes that you've ever tasted?
Emma: They're runny, Daddy.
Ryan: Yeah? They are sort of undercooked, aren't they? Sort of gross, actually. Ok, um, butter?
Ryan: Ah, you're fantastic. I love it here. Here, here, here. This is what I'll do. Um, here, oh, wow. That is not looking good. Let me try again. This one is all cooked. It looks a little bit better. We'll get a little syrup and the butter on that. It'll be fantastic. You're going to love it. Butter and syrup will make everything better. We'll get a little butter going, right? There you go. How's that? What?
Emma: Mommy makes animals.
Ryan: Oh. Uh, that is an animal. It's a -- it's an amoeba, a sick amoeba. I learned about them in school. Don't worry. It's delicious, ok? Look. See, I'll have a little bite here to show you. It's delicious. Mmm, mmm. See that? What is it? You want -- you want more syrup? Do you want more butter? Do you want -- what do you want?
Emma: I miss Mommy.
Krystal: How's Frankie?
Angie: He's due in court today.
Krystal: Well, I'll be thinking about him and you, too.
Tad: He's going to come out of this just fine.
Angie: Yeah, I hope so.
Krystal: Well, I hope you have time for my famous spiced pecan coffee cake.
Krystal: Hot out of the oven.
Angie: Sounds great.
Angie: So I guess I have to say that, um, I'm sorry you wasted your time.
Tad: Oh, no, baby. Not where coffee cake is concerned.
Angie: Jesse, the hang-ups, his behavior. He explained everything.
Tad: He did? Really?
Angie: There was an affair, but it was -- it was years ago, and it ended before he came back. Now, the woman has tracked him down, but Jesse made it clear they're over.
Tad: Well, that's -- that's just great, honey. That's terrific.
Angie: You know, I feel ridiculous, actually. I mean, I -- I should've gone straight to Jesse, talked to him, got it out in the open instead of coming to you.
Tad: Honey, you did go straight to Jesse, remember? And it -- wait a minute. You know, he, Jesse, he was playing it close to the vest. Under the circumstances, you were logical to be concerned.
Angie: No, I don't think I should've been. Doubt, suspicion, I mean -- I just made it worse. Look, Tad, I know this man. He's my husband, and I should've trusted him on this.
Tad: Yeah. Anyway, so, I mean, it's all good, right? I mean, case closed?
Tad: Amen, baby. Is that you?
Angie: Yeah. Thanks. Let's see here. Oh, it's Frankie.
Angie: He's on his way to court now. Listen, I'm going to meet Jesse.
Tad: Yeah, just do me a favor, ok? Just keep me posted.
Angie: I will. And thank you for everything.
Tad: Oh, honey, I love you.
Angie: I love you, too.
Tad: I love you.
Krystal: Angie left?
Tad: Yeah, Frankie. It's ok, baby. I got this.
Krystal: Ah, so problems with Frankie and then Jesse. I mean, poor Angie's got her hands full.
Tad: Uh, yeah, well, maybe not as full as you think. Wasn't having an affair. I mean, at least not in the here and now. This is just a case of an old flame who didn't want to let go.
Krystal: Hmm. So it's over? Over over?
Tad: Oh, from your lips, honey, from your lips. You were right all along, and I should never doubt you. This is one man who definitely loves his wife.
Greenlee: My husband is the best. I totally screwed up our honeymoon, and yet, the man still loves me.
Amanda: Oh, the honeymoon thing must be so great.
Greenlee: Oh, you have no idea.
Pete: Soy macchiato and call sheet.
Amanda: Hmm, more soy.
Pete: But yesterday there was too much.
Amanda: New day. Get on it, intern. Huh, Lacey's, Stanbridges, Calmart's. They all want Bella, coast to coast. The preliminary numbers are huge. This is way bigger than the initial Charm orders.
Kendall: Well, Charm has picked up steam, and it's still solid. Let's hope Bella doesn't flatline once the buzz dies down.
Amanda: It's going to sell big. I'd bet my fortune on it. Look, I'm really sorry about your honeymoon, but we could really use your hands around here.
Greenlee: Hmm, I might be bad luck. I broke a bottle of Bella all over my clothes. I got sick. I ruined my honeymoon.
Pete: You got sick? But you're ok now, right?
Amanda: Interns don't speak unless spoken to. Organize these. Make sure the paperclip big side is on the front.
Greenlee: Aidan was a doll. Totally took care of me. Sweats, rash, nausea. Didn't faze him. Made me love him even more.
Kendall: But you still came back.
Greenlee: I keep wondering, maybe I should've stayed.
Amanda: Do you think we should change the track order on -- why can't anyone focus?
Kendall: Hmm. So about that honeymoon.
Greenlee: You're not getting any details.
Kendall: No, it's just I thought that you'd be gone for weeks, and you came back so soon.
Greenlee: Heaving and itching put a little crimp on the romance.
Kendall: But you -- but you're better now. I mean, you could've stayed.
Greenlee: Aidan has a ton of work to do. With his workload and Bella, it just didn't seem right.
Kendall: To have a honeymoon?
Greenlee: Let it go.
Kendall: Not a chance.
Greenlee: All right. I had a fever, I was out of my head, and maybe at the wrong time, I said the wrong name.
Kendall: No way.
Greenlee: Go away.
Kendall: No, you -- you called Aidan "Ryan."
Ryan: You're going to get to see Mommy really soon.
Ryan: Um, as soon as -- as we work something out.
Emma: Are you mad at Mommy?
Ryan: No, no. It was finding the gun, Emma. I mean, when I saw it, I just -- I had to get you out of there.
Emma: I didn't see it.
Ryan: No, which is good. I'm glad you didn't, but if you had, or if -- if Little A had, then I -- I just need to know that it's safe for you to be living there. That's all.
Ryan: Are you going to eat those pancakes, or what? There you go, mmm.
Ryan: So are you having fun playing with Little A and Babe and J.R.?
Emma: Yeah, but I want to live here like we used to.
Ryan: I know. I know, sweetheart.
Emma: They're getting married.
Ryan: Babe and J.R.?
Emma: They kiss a lot.
Ryan: Yeah, well, that's what people do when they're in love.
Emma: You and Mommy don't kiss a lot.
Ryan: Hey, do you want me to get you some more juice?
Emma: Do you and Mommy still love each other?
Annie: Oh, you scared me.
Babe: Are you ok?
Annie: Yeah, I -- I couldn't sleep, so I thought the fresh air might help.
Babe: Is it Richie again? Are you having nightmares?
Annie: No, not Richie. Ryan. I mean, how could he do that? How could he take Emma from me?
Babe: It's only temporary.
Ryan: He's just looking for an excuse to get back at me.
Adam: Well, then don't give him one.
Babe: I'm sure Ryan will do the right thing and bring Emma back.
Annie: Will you tell Kendall and Greenlee I won't be coming in today?
Babe: Of course.
Adam: Are you going to hide?
Annie: No, I just want to be here in case Ryan --
Adam: In case he comes in with Emma and flowers and maybe a great, big, fat apology? Oh, come on, woman. You can't just curl up and surrender. Where's your steel?
Annie: I'm just trying to get my daughter back, Adam.
Adam: You're losing the battle before it's started.
Annie: No, I'm not.
Adam: Well, you are admitting defeat.
Babe: A little support maybe, Adam?
Annie: Thank you.
Adam: You know, the -- the ancient Greeks, they understood. They took the battle right straight to the walls of Troy, and for 20 years never gave up. Two decades with -- with rivers of -- of arrows and scorpion bombs and, uh, I -- I was watching the History Channel last night. It's very interesting.
Babe: I'm -- I'm sure that the scorpion-bomb thing is -- is very cool and amusing, but, um, maybe she could just text Ryan.
Adam: Yeah, well, let's -- let's think big. Agamemnon, he, uh, he did -- he could've just stayed in Athens and waited for his beloved Helen to come back to him, but no. He went on the offensive, and he faced down the enemy hordes and took her back. Now, if you love this child as much as you say you do, I suggest that you -- you stop, uh, hiding on the beaches and take the damn walls down and take her back.
Jesse: You know where that goes, right?
Angie: Any word on Frankie?
Jesse: Well, he's still in court. He should be out any minute.
Angie: I wish he'd let us know sooner. I really wanted to be with him.
Jesse: Yeah, yeah, so did I, but I guess he didn't want his parents hovering, wringing their hands.
Angie: But it's ok if the girlfriend comes along. Hi.
Angie: Hi, sweetheart. So what happened? What did the judge say?
Frankie: Six months probation, suspended license, community service.
Jesse: Fair enough. You're lucky, boy.
Angie: Your redeployment, what now?
Frankie: Suspended until my probation's over.
Angie: Oh, thank God. That's great news.
Frankie: No, Mom. It's a D.U.I.
Angie: But at least it'll keep you with us. Oh, come on, what? Stop playing. I know you must be as thrilled as we are.
Randi: I just want Frankie safe, no matter where he is.
Angie: At least we know you'll be ok at home.
Frankie: For a drunk driving fool idiot who could've killed someone.
Angie: You made a mistake.
Frankie: Yeah, and I'll spend the next six months picking up trash and garbage on the interstate, when I can be in Iraq, saving lives.
Angie: Well, maybe we can try --
Frankie: What? Wow. Use this to get out of my service?
Angie: I didn't say it.
Frankie: Yeah, but that's the first place your mind went. I've got to get to work. I'll walk you to Fusion.
Jesse: Hey, hey. Let him go. Let him go.
Angie: Why can't he understand that this is a good thing?
Taylor: I don't see what's so good about a D.U.I.
Jesse: I've got to -- I got to take this.
Angie: I'm not going to apologize for being relieved that my son's been spared even if only for six months.
Taylor: Six months. Six months when he could've been over there doing a world of good.
Angie: Or been killed.
Ryan: Your mommy and I, we love you very, very, very much, ok? We would do anything for you. You know that, right?
Emma: Do you love each other anymore?
Ryan: We love our family, and, um, sometimes parents hit a -- a little bit of a rough spot, you know, and they've got to figure things out.
Emma: We're in one of those spots?
Ryan: Yeah, yeah, we are.
Emma: Are Mommy and I coming back?
Ryan: Um, your mom and I have, um, some stuff that we have to work through.
Emma: She says everything's going to be ok.
Ryan: It is. Absolutely.
Emma: She told me she loves you this much.
Ryan: Wow. Well, I love you this much. And I can't stop kissing you, because I love you too much.
Emma: Daddy, stop.
Ryan: Oh, no, I can't. I love you too much, but if we don't hurry up, you're going to be late for school. So you've got to go upstairs and brush your teeth and get your stuff, ok?
Ryan: Ok, can I have a kiss? Ok, up you go.
[Knock at door]
Ryan: What are you doing here?
Annie: I want to see Emma.
Ryan: Look, it -- it -- it's not a good time right now, ok?
Annie: I am her mother.
Ryan: I was just about to take her to school, Annie.
Annie: Ok, and after that?
Ryan: We'll talk about it.
Annie: I want her back, Ryan.
Ryan: Not in that house.
Annie: It was horrible, I agree, but it's not going to happen again.
Ryan: I'm going to need a little bit more than just a promise.
Annie: Ok, what do you want me to do? I will do it. We have to be able to work this out.
Ryan: She stays with me until I'm 100% sure that she's safe, ok?
Annie: Just let me see her.
Ryan: I don't want to upset her, Annie. I'm sorry.
Greenlee: Aidan asked me if I wanted kids, my brain was on fire, and I said, "Yes, Ryan."
Kendall: Oh, my God. Aidan must've gone completely insane.
Greenlee: No, he understood. He -- he knew that Ryan and I shared a life together. We were married.
Kendall: Oh, come on. I mean, Aidan is cool, but nobody's that cool.
Greenlee: Enough, Kendall, ok? Why don't we get back to work?
Babe: Sorry I'm late. I got held up dropping off Little A.
Kendall: Is he ok?
Babe: Well, better than I am.
Greenlee: What happened?
Babe: He swallowed my engagement ring, choked.
Greenlee: Oh, my God.
Amanda: I am so glad that Little A is ok, and I'm thrilled that you're engaged. You just had a honeymoon, and -- and you're still married, but can we please work on getting Bella off the loading dock and into stores, please?
Annie: Sorry I'm late.
Amanda: Oh, you get a pass for Little A, but, um, I need you to conference with the A.E.s on the national campaign, and I have some ideas I want to throw at you.
Babe: Um, ease up just a little bit, Amanda. Ryan took Emma.
Kendall: Oh, thank God.
Babe: Um, did you go to him?
Annie: He wouldn't let me take her back. He wouldn't even let me see her.
Kendall: Well, maybe because you had a gun lying around the house.
Greenlee: A gun?
Babe: It wasn't Annie's fault. It was Adam's. What are you going to do?
Annie: I'm going to get Emma back.
Kendall: Well, if you ask me, she is way better off with Ryan.
Annie: Ryan is violating a restraining order.
Greenlee: A bogus restraining order based on bogus bruises.
Babe: I saw them.
Greenlee: Yeah, and Annie confessed to Ryan that she was the one that left the marks, not him, to get the restraining order to hurt him.
Annie: My God. He told you that?
Kendall: You're a bitch.
Annie: All I was asking, Kendall, was Ryan to allow me to see my own daughter. I have that right.
Kendall: No, you are an absolutely delusional, paranoid woman who leaves guns around the house for her child to find and who completely acts out all the time. Ryan had every right to do what he did.
Angie: I know you've been pressuring my son to do his duty.
Taylor: No, I'm on his side, really.
Angie: As long as he puts his life on the line.
Taylor: No, I -- I just want Frankie to do what's right for him.
Angie: You know the night with the boys from his unit? How did that end? Frankie with a D.U.I., and my guess is that he is so conflicted, so pressured to serve, when it's the last thing that he wants. He got drunk.
Taylor: Or maybe he got drunk because he doesn't want to leave his girlfriend. Yeah, he's conflicted. He's got a girlfriend begging him to stay and a mother.
Angie: I will not lose my son to that war.
Taylor: Angie, please, try to understand. Frankie is -- he's like the best soldier in the unit and -- and a soldier of his caliber and his skill. He's not over there while his buddies are fighting. Imagine how he must feel, how helpless, how out of place.
Angie: He feels? He feels? You feel. You're a career soldier. This is your life. It's not about Frankie.
Taylor: Well, he volunteered.
Angie: Yes, he did, and when he came back after months of praying for his safe return, we almost lost him for good. Now, I don't know what he saw over there, because he won't talk about it, but whatever it was, Frankie disappeared into a place so deep, so far away, that the only reason we have him back in our lives is because he got sick. Now, he doesn't have any physical scars, but my son was wounded over there, and I'll be damned if I let him go back.
Taylor: It's not your call.
Angie: No, it's not. I know that. Just like I know that after you showed up with that Silver Star and that sales pitch about hope and honor and the good old days on the battlefield --
Taylor: There's no "good old days." People are dying over there.
Angie: You act like this is one big party, the only place to be.
Taylor: That's not been my intention. Ple -- it's a nightmare over there, but we are doing something important. We are saving lives, a country. Somebody has to make that sacrifice.
Angie: Not my son.
Taylor: No, somebody else's son, right? I don't expect you to understand.
Angie: No, I don't expect you to understand. You are not a mother or a wife. Do -- do you know what it's like to lose a husband, a son, on the battlefield? No, because I don't think you could possibly understand what that is like.
Taylor: You're right. I'm sorry. What do I know?
Jesse: Somebody's not happy.
Angie: You agree with her, don't you? Let Frankie do what he wants, even if it means going off to that damned war.
Jesse: He's a man, Angela, a strong man, a brave man. He's proved himself over and over, time and time again. Maybe it's time that you started looking at him as a grownup and realize that a lot of that growing up happened while he was over in Iraq, away from his mother.
Tad: Oy. You've got the spy case out. Thanks.
Tad: Been on the Hubbard situation?
Aidan: Actually, it's, uh, it's about something else.
Tad: Good, glad to hear it. That's why I wanted to see you. Turns out there was no affair after all.
Tad: Well, I mean there was, but there isn't anymore. See, Jesse had an affair a long time ago when he was on the run, but he ended it, and the woman wasn't content to leave it that way.
Aidan: So it's in the past?
Aidan: No, but a comeback.
Tad: Well, like I said. It tried, and Jesse sent it away again.
Aidan: We sure?
Tad: Yeah, we're sure. We're talking about Jesse here. He's the most honest man I've ever met. I was right. You were wrong. Just a case of something seeming to be one way, and it was actually another way. Now Angie's feeling bad about doubting him, you know? I got to tell you the truth. You got me so wound up, I had a couple of twinges myself.
Aidan: So no harm done then.
Tad: Well, I didn't say that. I mean, this shook her up pretty bad. Me, too. I mean, their love is as close to perfect as I've -- I've ever seen, then and now.
Tad: Even with problems, that kind of love is rock solid.
Aidan: Good for them, hey? Good for them. Angie wasn't wrong to worry. Though sometimes things can be so damn perfect, you sure as hell know that it won't last.
Greenlee: Ryan is amazing, like the greatest dad ever. If he, if he took Emma, it wasn't to punish you.
Annie: He grabbed her and ran. He threatened us.
Kendall: Hello? Firearm in the house.
Annie: I explained that.
Kendall: Yes, conveniently.
Greenlee: He did the right thing.
Annie: God. You are so predictable, the both of you. Saint flipping Ryan can do no wrong.
Kendall: Well, first of all, he doesn't lie. He doesn't manipulate. He doesn't play games.
Annie: He's breaking the law.
Greenlee: To protect his daughter.
Annie: I can protect my own daughter.
Kendall: Oh, ok, so the gun wasn't loaded, so now that makes you a great mom?
Annie: Was this your idea? Did you put Ryan up to this, taking Emma?
Kendall: No, of course, not. Ryan made the right choice all by himself.
Annie: Excuse me.
Greenlee: Where are you going?
Annie: I'm going to do exactly what I should've done the second Ryan stole my daughter.
Kendall: Dammit, she's going to the police. You have to warn Ryan.
Greenlee: Uh, Ryan, call Kendall when you get this. Please, it's urgent. You better get over there.
Kendall: No, I -- I can't go.
Greenlee: You have to.
Kendall: I can't, I can't. I promised Zach I would not get in the middle of Ryan's life. He calls it meddling. I call it concern. You have to go. Go, go to Ryan.
Greenlee: No, I can't. I just got back from my honeymoon, the honeymoon where I called my husband "Ryan."
Kendall: Ok, well, you said Aidan was completely understanding.
Greenlee: No, no, no, I will not be pushed at Ryan.
Kendall: All right, ok. I'm not pushing you, but if you don't get there first, Ryan will go to jail. Do you want that on your conscience?
Angie: I can't do nothing, Jesse. I can't stand back and watch.
Jesse: Maybe just respect his choices.
Angie: I'll do my best, but don't ask me to stop worrying. Mothers don't do that.
Jesse: Hey, fathers worry just as hard. I know what being a son is. The push, the pull, trying to be your own man. I mean, it's tough, but I've been trying to give Frankie his space.
Angie: He can have his space. He can all the space that he wants, honey, but I -- I will never accept him leaving. I will never say good-bye to my son. Never.
Frankie: Oh, what's up, man? Sorry I'm late.
Jake: It's all right. How are you? How did it go?
Frankie: Could've been worse. Probation, suspended license, community service.
Jake: Hmm, ok. About Iraq?
Frankie: Yeah, six months, when my probation's up.
Jake: All right. That's a slight reprieve.
Frankie: Yeah, I guess so. Hey, man, I'll catch you on the flip.
Taylor: Did you talk to him? Did he tell you about the courtroom?
Jake: Yeah, well, I know everything. So what do you think? And he tried to wiggle out of redeployment, and he would do it any way he could, even if it meant getting a D.U.I.?
Taylor: I'm getting quite a reputation in this town. No, I don't think that. I think Frankie is conflicted. I understand. I do. I get it, I get it.
Jake: So what's your story?
Taylor: I have a doctor's appointment.
Jake: Oh, is it the foot? Want me to take a look at it?
Taylor: No, it's my head. Psychiatrist.
Jake: Trying to get some help. Good. That's very good.
Taylor: I am not seeing a shrink, because I have post-traumatic stress disorder. I'm seeing one to prove I don't have it.
Jake: You know, the whole point of seeing a therapist -- let me rephrase that. You know you got to be honest when you talk to a shrink, right?
Taylor: Why wouldn't I be?
Randi: So he got probation, but, at least, he's not going to be in Iraq for six months. Look, I know I'm late, so pile it on.
Amanda: Uh, we are fine-tuning the Bella print campaign.
Babe: Great job on those reports, by the way.
Amanda: You done collating, Master P?
Pete: Almost. The big side up, right?
Babe: It's hard to believe it's your first time word processing. They're flawless.
Randi: Wow. I, um, I didn't know my Ps from my Qs before I got this job.
Amanda: Well, we couldn't have done it without you. You saved us. Now we just have to figure out our next move.
Amanda: I say we call the Europe lab, have them hurry things up.
Babe: We've put in a huge order.
Amanda: They just can't meet demands.
Babe: You're suggesting they cut corners?
Amanda: Why not?
Kendall: I'll tell you why not. You push a manufacturer, there'll be delays. Delays mean less orders and too much product. Then what?
Amanda: I'm feeling way too glass-half-full to listen to you.
Kendall: Fine. Well, then, add not listening to me to the list of many things you will regret down the line.
Babe: Look, if Bella breaks big and stays big, we're going to need all hands on for the next month or so.
Randi: I'm in.
Amanda: Busy 24/7.
Babe: Too busy to be my maid of honor?
Amanda: No. Really?
Amanda: That's great. I would love to. You're going to throw the bouquet directly to me, right?
Babe: It's got your name on it.
Randi: Wow, a wedding and a new perfume. You're taking multitasking to a whole new level.
Amanda: Well, you haven't seen anything yet.
Amanda: Yo, intern, will you grab that?
Pete: This is Fusion.
Man: I'm looking for Greenlee Smythe.
Pete: She's not in. Can I take a message?
Man: This is Dr. Thorpe. It's about a lab report. I'll call back.
Pete: Wait. Uh, no, I'll take that message. Just, uh, yeah, I'll pass it along.
Dr. Thorpe: Well, the lab results confirm my diagnosis of an allergic reaction. There was a synthetic in her bloodstream, probably the result of topical contact of soap or lotion.
Pete: Oh, ok. I'll -- I'll pass her the message. Ahem.
Annie: Ryan violated the restraining order. I mean, he just took my daughter. I -- I have witnesses. Babe and J.R. Chandler.
Jesse: Have you spoken to Ryan?
Annie: I went to see him this morning, and he refused to give Emma back.
Jesse: Annie, I'm sure there's something you guys can do to work this out.
Annie: Ryan doesn't want to work this out, Jesse.
Jesse: If you call the police in, Ryan will be arrested. Is that what you want? Because if you go on with this, there's no turning back. For Ryan or to your marriage.
Ryan: Hey. Didn't I hear someplace that you were on your, uh, your honeymoon?
Greenlee: Yeah, crazy us, we just, um, couldn't stay away from Pine Valley. How was school?
Emma: I drew this.
Greenlee: Oh, it's beautiful.
Ryan: So, um, so what's going on?
Greenlee: Um, I bet all that drawing worked up an appetite.
Ryan: Yeah, I have apples cut up and some crackers on the table. You want that? Ok. Um, I'm kind of surprised to -- to see you here.
Greenlee: Yeah, I wasn't expecting to be here, but I don't have a choice. Annie spun out at Fusion about you taking Emma. She's probably with the police right now.
Ryan: The restraining order?
Greenlee: Yes. You have to do something.
Ryan: I was just trying to protect my daughter.
Greenlee: I know, the gun. I heard, but, please, Ryan, you have to drop it. It's over. Give Emma back before it gets out of control.
Ryan: Sorry, I can't do that.
Jake: I think you would do whatever it takes to get back to Iraq. That's what I think.
Taylor: Whatever it takes?
Jake: Right, like lying.
Taylor: I'm rested. I'm willing. I'm able.
Jake: Hmm, are you going to tell the doctor about the nightmares?
Taylor: I'm going to pass the evaluation.
Jake: What about the tremors? Or are you going to sit on your hands for the whole session?
Taylor: Check it out. Rock solid.
Jake: Yeah, the doctor's going to ask you what you saw over there and what it felt like to see your fiancÚ die.
Taylor: I get it. I can handle it.
Jake: What happens when you start shaking when you get upset? Are you going to hide that? Are you going to hide that from the doctor?
Taylor: Jake, I'm going back. Deal with it, ok? This is what I do. I'm good at it.
Jake: And I think you're good at fooling people.
Taylor: Where do you even get off saying -- you don't -- you know me.
Jake: It's just that you act so tough, and you don't care what I think, which is fine, but you -- you act like you don't care what anybody thinks.
Taylor: I don't, and you know what? Just do me a favor. Don't try to get into my head.
Taylor: Don't try to act like you have any idea what I think.
Jake: You don't care what I think. That's fine.
Taylor: Because you don't know me.
Jake: No, but I think you're a liar. I'm sorry. You're shaking. Is everything ok?
Kendall: Babe, I think something's going on with our little intern Petey. He -- he took this message for Greenlee, and then he lit out of here.
Babe: Straight to Adam?
Kendall: What do you think?
Babe: Have you found out anything about what Adam's been up to lately?
Kendall: No, nothing wrong with a more direct approach.
Babe: Petey. What, Kendall? You -- you going to put him in time-out or tie him up to see if he'll talk?
Kendall: Maybe. Go to the house. Do you have time? Swing by, have lunch, see if he has a visitor?
Babe: Well, would you look at that? It's time to go.
Kendall: Well, look at that. Ok, good.
Babe: Ok. All right, I'll be back.
Kendall: Thank you.
Babe: See you.
Amanda: Babe, we haven't signed off on the print campaign yet.
Babe: I'll be back. I'll be back.
Amanda: We have a perfume to launch, people. Why is everyone bailing?
Greenlee: Annie won't give Emma up without a fight.
Ryan: Well, she should've thought about that before she left the gun someplace that Emma can find it.
Greenlee: The gun was a mistake. It was taken care of. Why not just give Emma back?
Ryan: You and I both know this is not just about the gun, ok? Annie is unstable, and I've been dealing with it. I've been dealing with it, but this is the first time that she's actually done something that puts my daughter in danger.
Greenlee: You know that big, empty space you talked about? Taking Emma isn't going to fill it.
Ryan: This is about protecting my daughter and nothing else.
Greenlee: You and Annie are just getting over a miscarriage. You're grieving. You're sad. You're angry. Don't fight over the child you have. Please, Ryan, just give Emma back.
[Knock on door]
Jesse: Ryan. Jesse Hubbard. Ryan, open the door. I need to talk to you.
Greenlee: Listen, I'll talk to them.
Greenlee: If you take Emma back to the Chandlers, we can salvage this.
Emma: Daddy, why aren't you opening the door?
Annie: Emma? Are you there, sweetheart?
Annie: Hi! Oh, there's my beautiful girl. Hi.
Tad: Call me.
Krystal: You're disappointed.
Tad: No, I love your coffee cake.
Krystal: No, about Jesse.
Tad: Oh, come on. I'm thrilled there was no affair.
Krystal: Oh, well, of course, but you wouldn't have minded a little gumshoe action.
Tad: Oh, no, you don't.
Krystal: Uh --
Tad: No, no, nope, nope. I'm not biting. For the hundredth time, I am happily out of the business.
Krystal: Hmm, maybe just a little bit bored?
Tad: Bored? Did you say "bored"?
Krystal: Mm-hmm, I said, "bored."
Tad: Hmm. With a woman like you to spend time with? Half-empty joint like this? Do I really look like a fool to you? Huh? Mmm.
[Tad chuckles as he kisses Krystal]
Taylor: You're avoiding me now?
Frankie: I'm behind schedule, and we ain't about to sit here and talk about my redeployment either.
Taylor: Ok. Can we talk about mine? I -- I need something. For this. Can you help me?
Adam: Yeah, that would work. Just, uh, these two.
Pete: Glad I caught you.
Adam: Ever hear of knocking?
Pete: Good news.
Adam: Oh? You're going to live another day, huh?
Pete: You know that bottle of Bella that Greenlee took on her honeymoon, the one you were sure she wouldn't touch because it was so cheap?
Adam: She used it?
Pete: Broke the bottle, actually. Next thing you know, hives, itching, rashes --
Adam: This -- this is good news?
Pete: Her doctor called. I took the message. Noted that it was an allergic reaction, allergic.
Adam: Uh, how did he identify the contaminant?
Pete: He said that it had something to do with her soap or lotion or --
Adam: Yeah, they really don't know a thing.
Pete: Not a clue.
Adam: All right. Perfect. Perfect um, I'll, uh, when -- when the -- the victims of Bella start piling up at the E.R., then the Fusion company is going to get after the manufacturers. There's going to be talk of sabotage and so forth, but, um, all the people will know is that the product has been, um, brought forward that is, basically, untested and unsafe.
Pete: People will hate that. Fusion will be finished.
Adam: Yes, yes, yes. And I -- I prefer to think of it's, uh, well, something that's just ripe for the picking.
Adam: And I'll, um, pick everything back up as best I can, and everybody will be fine, except, of course, Babe.
Aidan: I have a lunch date with Greenlee. Is she around?
Amanda: Lucky girl. You'd think she's be here.
Kendall: My fault, my fault completely. We had a -- a makeup emergency. She had to meet with the manufacturer for eye-candy campaign, and she had to talk to him about doubling production, so nobody can sweet talk that old geezer like Greenlee. Sorry.
Aidan: The life of a cosmetics mogul.
Kendall: Yeah, uh, Aidan, wait. Um, you -- you haven't told me. How was the honeymoon?
Aidan: Greenlee didn't fill you in?
Kendall: Uh, no, actually, we've been really swamped around here, but she did say that she was sorry it was cut short and that, um, that you had a lot of work to do.
Aidan: Yeah, that I do.
Kendall: Any interesting cases?
Aidan: As if I would tell you, Kendall.
Greenlee: There's a good reason why Ryan has Emma.
Ryan: That's ok, Greenlee. The restraining order is meaningless, ok? Annie has already admitted that the bruises weren't caused by me, so --
Jesse: Ryan, if you agree to release Emma to Annie right now, we can squash this.
Ryan: Back to Chandler's?
Annie: It's safe now. Baby, you want to go home with Mama?
Emma: This is home. Why can't we all live here?
Ryan: Why, I think you living here a little bit more is a great idea.
Greenlee: Ryan, let her go.
Ryan: I can't do that.
Annie: The law is on my side, Ryan.
Ryan: Emma stays here.
Annie: No, Emma is going home with me.
Emma: I want to be with both of you.
Louise: Hi, my name is Louise. Would you like to come with me?
Ryan: Um, actually, Emma is doing great right where she is, ok, so unless you have a court order or a warrant, she stays here.
Jesse: Ryan, actually, the restraining order is still legally binding, so, Emma, honey, you want to go with Mommy?
Ryan: Just -- you stay away from my daughter, ok? Stay away from her, please!
Greenlee: Ryan, Ryan, don't.
Jesse: Ryan, you need --
Ryan: Ok, Emma?
Jesse: Relax -- Ryan, you are under arrest!
Ryan: Oh, you've got to be kidding.
Greenlee: You can't do this.
Jesse: You have the right to remain silent.
Greenlee: Tell him to let go of Ryan.
Annie: He kidnapped my child.
Greenlee: This is what you wanted, isn't it?
Annie: He's breaking the law, Greenlee.
Greenlee: You bitch.
Annie: Let go of me, or I will have you arrested, too.
