Jack: What?

Erica: It's just nice. That's all.

Jack: What is?

Erica: To know that you still care. There's nothing wrong with admitting that you still have feelings for me.

Adam: Get off my property, and leave my daughter alone.

Pete: That wasn't our deal.

Adam: Oh, well, here's the new deal, bucko. You do as I say or I tell the police the truth, that you tainted the perfume.

Colby: I don't think so, Daddy.

Adam: Stop threatening you'll run off to California with your brother.

Colby: Ok, how about this threat -- you narc on Pete, I'll narc on you. The whole world will know you spiked Bella.

J.R.: Well, there it is. That's the spot, the spot where I first met you.

Babe: Yep. I was standing at the end of the pier, a total wreck.

J.R.: And I was thinking to myself --

Both: Who is that?

[Both chuckle]

Babe: We're back in San Diego. It's a dream.

J.R.: It's real. We're home. We did it, Babe.

Kendall: You really did it. You murdered Richie. You can't even deny it. And you, you knew. That's how you got her to give Ryan custody of Emma.

Annie: Zach blackmailed me into handing over my child. You must be thrilled.

Kendall: Oh, I will be when they lock your crazy ass in jail. I'm calling the police. No --

Ryan: Put the gun down, Aidan.

Greenlee: Hello? The door's open --

[Aidan laughs]

Aidan: Look who it is. What a surprise.

Greenlee: What's going on?

Aidan: I think we all know the answer to that.

Ryan: Greenlee, I think you should leave.

Aidan: How sweet. The man you love is protecting you from the man you pretended to love.

Greenlee: Aidan, please.

Aidan: You married me. You love Ryan. You always have, and you always will. Isn't that right, Greenlee?

Jack: Carmen, right on time. We're having dinner at ConFusion.

Erica: Have a great evening.

Jack: Thanks. So, you, uh, you ready to go?

Carmen: You're still in love with her, aren't you?

Jack: No.

Carmen: Why don't I believe you?

Kendall: I can't believe you're doing this. We have got to get the cops here now -- now.

Zach: We had a deal. She's holding up her end.

Kendall: She killed a man, Zach. She has to pay.

Annie: I have. I lost my child.

Kendall: Ok, well, I almost lost my husband when you -- when you murdered Richie and then tried to pin it on Zach.

Annie: But everything worked out just fine for you, Kendall. You got everything you wanted, didn't you?

Kendall: Oh, am I supposed to feel pity on you after everything you did to my family and the hell you put Ryan through?

Zach: We're doing fine now.

Annie: You know, Ryan and I were fine until he was hit with a bullet meant for you.

Kendall: Oh, don't kid yourself. He would have left you anyway.

Annie: Only because you and Greenlee just won't stay the hell out of my life.

Kendall: Oh, please, it was inevitable. Just like you going to prison. You got Richie locked up for a crime he didn't commit, and now you're going to prison for killing him -- it's perfect. Karma's a bigger bitch than you are.

Zach: Stop.

Kendall: You know what? She's psychotic. She turned her own brother into road kill.

Zach: I would have killed him, she got there first.

Kendall: No, you wouldn't have. You wouldn't have done that to me or the boys. She's going to prison.

Annie: I go, Zach goes.

Kendall: What?

Annie: Jesse heard Zach say that he wishes he had killed Richie. Zach's the one who found Richie's body.

Kendall: So?

Annie: So, if you tell the cops what I did, I'll say that Zach and I did it together. I'll swear that he helped me. And you know how convincing I can be under oath.

Kendall: You're a bitch. You're a bitch.

Ryan: Just take it easy, man. All right? Let's just sit down, and we can talk about this.

Aidan: What are we going to talk about, Ryan? How you two fell in love?

[Aidan pours a drink]

Greenlee: Haven't you had enough?

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: It almost sounds like she cares. So what's your secret, Ryan?

Ryan: I'm -- I'm sorry?

Aidan: Well, you stole my wife from me. Annie's crazy about you, literally. And Kendall went above and beyond to carry your child. I'm just wondering what the hold is that you have on women. Huh?

Greenlee: Why don't you just put the gun down?

Aidan: Don't worry, baby. I'm not going to shoot Ryan. He's going to shoot me.

Aidan: It won't be murder, because I'm already dead. You killed me.

Adam: You are not about to side against me with this Cortlandt worm.

Pete: Watch what you call me.

Colby: Seriously, calling Pete names? Could you be any less mature?

Adam: Stop defending this rat.

Colby: Don't tell me what to do.

Adam: You're my daughter.

Colby: Not for long if you keep this up. Daddy, I'm all you have left. Back off, or I'll move away, too.

Adam: Where are we on this lawsuit?

Barry: Look these over. I'll be back tomorrow morning.

Adam: All right, there's more. I -- I want you to depose Babe.

Barry: I plan to. She's one of the major forces behind Bella.

Adam: And also to subpoena J.R.

Barry: J.R.? What for?

Adam: His sister was poisoned.

Barry: By a perfume created by his fiancée. He'll be a hostile witness.

Adam: I don't give a damn. Just draw up the papers. I want Babe and J.R. on a flight back to Pine Valley.

Erica: I know what you're doing. You're using subpoenas to get your family back.

Man: Sparkling cider for two.

J.R.: Anywhere's fine.

Babe: Are we celebrating something?

[J.R. laughs]

J.R.: Here. All right. I booked a minister. I reserved a spot on the pier, our spot, for a private ceremony tomorrow evening at 6:35 p.m. The exact time we got married five years ago.

Babe: J.R., it's perfect.

J.R.: To 6:35 p.m. The moment my life began.

Erica: You're using this lawsuit to force your son and your grandson to come home.

Adam: Oh, nonsense. Erica, I have work to do.

Erica: You miss your boys. Look, Adam, it's hard to believe, but you and I have actually been enjoying each other's company lately. And trust me, you will enjoy it more if you would be honest with me. You're lonely. You want J.R. to come back.

Adam: Just for Chandler Enterprises. He's actually done some decent work lately.

Erica: And Thanksgiving is coming. Don't you want your family around the table?

Adam: I'll take Colby on a vacation.

Erica: And Christmas? Don't you want to see the look on Little Adam's face when he opens up his Christmas presents? No laughter, no little feet running up and down the stairs, no one to have meals with?

Adam: You're right, I miss them. I want them to come home.

Erica: Was that so hard?

Babe: I have nothing to wear.

J.R.: Don't worry.

Babe: This is our wedding. I don't want to take our vows in flip-flops. The rest of our stuff isn't going to be here for weeks.

J.R.: Relax. It's handled. Yeah, send them up.

Babe: They're all beautiful, but they're not quite right.

J.R.: Do you have anything else?

Jeweler: I can run back to the store.

Babe: No, thanks. We're all set.

J.R.: Our old rings. You saved them?

Babe: I -- it's ok to have a new engagement ring, but these -- these represent our eternal love. I never stopped loving you, and I never will.

J.R.: When we put these on tomorrow, they're never coming off.

Greenlee: I wanted our marriage to work.

Aidan: Oh, you gave it the old college try, didn't you? "A" for effort.

Greenlee: Let's go somewhere and talk.

Aidan: Go somewhere and talk? Why? You love who you love -- end of story.

[Aidan sighs]

Aidan: I should have known you wouldn't shoot me. The great old Ryan Lavery, always does what's right and honorable. You picked a real winner, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Please, stop.

Aidan: Well, why don't you shoot me? You already broke my heart to pieces. What's one more hit, huh? Don't touch me. Don't touch me. Don't ever come near me again. I hope you two are very happy.

Kendall: Why are you protecting her? She is a deranged killer.

Zach: Calm down.

Annie: Put a muzzle on your wife or I swear --

Zach: Hey! I gave you a pass for one reason and one reason only. I don't want Emma growing up without a mother. You threaten me or my family again, I'll make you disappear, and they'll never find you. You don't want that. I don't want that. What I want is for you to get your life together so Emma can have you in her life. You've got a second chance. Don't screw it up. Get out.

Zach: I'll get your luggage to you.

Kendall: Everything you did was for Emma?

Zach: I did what I thought was best for her, that's all.

Kendall: You wanted Annie to get her life together and be well, so that Emma would have both of her parents.

Zach: A child needs his mother, especially when they're young.

Kendall: You were Emma's age when you lost your mother. Zach, she loved you. She loved you more than anything. And so do I.

Erica: Our children really need to discover who they are apart from us. They need their independence. And actually, so do we. I hold them back. I hold myself back. I love my children, but I have a life totally separate from theirs, a fabulous one. And yours is not so shabby either.

Adam: Hmm.

Erica: All you have to do is you have to step back and see it, enjoy it. Live your life, Adam. Live your life, and let your children live theirs.

Pete: And then -- and then you said you'd take him down for spiking Bella. Pow! And then you said you'd narc on him to the police. Bam! And then -- and then you called him immature. Zap.

[Doorbell rings]

Pete: But that -- that part about moving away -- you weren't serious, right?

[Doorbell rings]

Colby: What is that?

Pete: The doorbell.

Colby: Yeah, duh, but why is it ringing when no one's out there?

[Doorbell rings]

Pete: Mom, Mom, Mom -- could you --

Colby: Opal, are you ok?

Opal: I was sitting under the dryer, and I fell asleep. I had the worst nightmare.

Pete: Kill me now.

Opal: I dreamed I was alone in the house in the dead of night. It was quiet, too quiet.

[Doorbell rings]

Opal: I heard this siren or -- or foghorn.

[Opal imitates siren]

Opal: And I -- I ran outside.

[Doorbell rings]

Opal: There it was. There was thick, thick fog everywhere. I couldn't see my hand in front of my face, and I called out "Help!" "Please, help me!" No one answered. There was no one there, not a soul. Just me alone in that thick fog and -- and that siren screaming, screaming. And then --

[Doorbell rings]

Opal: Then I woke up, and -- and the doorbell was ringing, and I -- I came down, and I -- I answered the door, and no one was there, just like in the dream. It's a sign. Don't you see? A sign that something terrible is getting closer every second. It's right at our doorstep. I can feel it in my bones.

Pete: It's probably just jammed. I mean, doorbells can be damaged easily by weather conditions such as the wind.

Colby: But --

[Doorbell rings]

Colby: There is no wind.

Kendall: Such a beautiful night after such a crazy day, and I don't just mean Annie. The FDA wasn't satisfied with shutting Fusion down. Usually Fusion can stick it out, but this time, I don't know.

Kendall: Zach, look at this. This is so nice.

Zach: Hey.

Kendall: Hey.

Zach: Fusion's going to be fine.

Kendall: Wait a minute. What about Greenlee?

Zach: What about her?

Kendall: She and Aidan broke up.

Zach: Oh.

Kendall: Yeah. And she was so upset, and I really, really wanted to be there for her. But she told me to go to you. She reminded me of what I have and that I shouldn't take it for granted. And I have so much -- I have so many amazing things in my life, and I have taken it all for granted, especially you. I'm sorry.

Kendall: More?

Zach: Mm-hmm.

[Kendall chuckles]

Emma: Mommy!

Annie: Where -- well, hi. What -- what are you doing here?

Emma: Corrina brought me here.

Annie: Why is my daughter wandering around here at night alone?

Corrina: I -- I'm sorry. I just turned my back for a second. Come on, Emma, time to go.

Annie: Never, ever take your eyes off her. Do you understand? There is -- there is a man stalking me, and he could be after her, too. You have to keep her safe.

Corrina: We really should go. Come on. Please give her to me, or I'm going to have to call Mr. Lavery.

Greenlee: Everything I said about how you hurt me -- we did that to Aidan.

Ryan: This is insane. It's totally and completely insane -- the hospital, Chandlers', the police station, the courthouse, and now my own home. This has to stop, Greenlee.

Greenlee: We're responsible. We're responsible for all of it. Don't you see that? Why did Annie lose her mind? Because of us. Why did -- why -- why is Aidan crushed? Because of us, because we can't stop loving each other. I should go.

Ryan: What are -- what -- what did you just say?

Greenlee: I can't do this.

Ryan: Say it again.

Greenlee: No, no, I won't make this any worse.

Ryan: Please, say it again. Tell me how you really feel.

[Greenlee sighs]

Greenlee: I love you, Ryan. I've always loved you. You know how I feel, but that doesn't change anything.

Ryan: It changes everything.

Greenlee: Aidan is still my husband, Annie is still your wife. Look at the hell we've put them through.

Ryan: I know. And -- and I hate that. I hate it, Greenlee, but somehow this is right. And deep down inside, deep down inside, Greenlee, we've always known it and so have they. We tried, we tried to -- to -- to deny it, we tried to pretend it doesn't exist anymore. We can't do it anymore, we can't.

Greenlee: A few days ago, you threw me out of here. You said you'd always hurt me, that you would hurt me again.

Ryan: I know. I know. That was before I realized that we were already hurting each other, and it was -- that was before you told me that you still love me.

Greenlee: So? What? We hop on your bike and ride off into the sunset? Forget all the people that we've decimated?

Ryan: We have caused a lot of pain. From living this enormous lie -- that's how we've done it, Greenlee. We thought that we were protecting them, but we weren't.

Greenlee: I have to protect myself. When we were married, you destroyed me, and I will not go through that again.

Ryan: I'm not the man I was, Greenlee. I'm not that man anymore. I was -- I was afraid of turning into my father, I was afraid of tearing my family apart. I know that that won't happen now.

Ryan: I will never, ever leave you, Greenlee. I will give you the love and the commitment and the future that you deserve. I have never been more sure about anything in my life.

[Ryan and Greenlee kiss]

Annie: I am Emma's mother.

Corrina: Mr. Lavery told me I'm not allowed to let you near her unless it's a scheduled visit.

Annie: Corrina, you know I would never hurt my daughter.

Corrina: I'm sorry.

Annie: Ok, my angel, Mommy loves you so, so much. You know that, right? And I'm going to see you real soon, ok? Ok. Ok, good girl. Oh. Ok, bye.

J.R.: From here on, it's going to be nothing but the best.

Babe: I don't need fancy things. The only thing I need is you.

J.R.: No, I'm not talking about things. I'm talking about giving you the best of myself. I want to be the man that you deserve. I just want to make you proud.

Babe: You already do.

J.R.: Well, I've got a lot of work to do, but for the first time, I feel like it's possible to get where I'm going -- because of you.

Babe: You got me this gorgeous dress, and you made all these arrangements. I want to give you something.

J.R.: Sports car?

Babe: No, maybe something a little smaller.

J.R.: New golf clubs?

Babe: How about a new baby?

Erica: So, have you decided to reconsider forcing J.R. back from San Diego?

Adam: I shall take your opinion under advisement.

Erica: Good. Wow. Class-action lawsuit -- that must be a lot of work.

Adam: That's what attorneys are for.

Erica: Well, you're doing the right thing.

Adam: Yesterday you wanted me to drop the suit. Now you're taking my side.

Erica: Well, I'm -- I'm not taking anyone's side. And I -- I told you already that I -- I think that Fusion has been grossly mismanaged for some time.

Adam: By Kendall.

Erica: And I even told her that -- only now, I just wish that I had told her sooner. Fusion may not survive this, Adam, unless they have really substantial help.

Adam: Hmm. Still considering a takeover?

Erica: Adam, I -- I told you that -- that was never in my mind. I -- I just really want what's best for Fusion. I wonder if there isn't another solution, some wonderfully creative idea that can save them.

Adam: Well, if this suit does do in Fusion, so be it, but let's both pledge not to let this interfere with our friendship.

Erica: Of course not.

Adam: In that case, will you join me for dinner?

Erica: I'd be delighted. I'll -- I'll freshen up.

Adam: I'll be in my study.

Erica: Ok. Hello, Carmen.

Carmen: What the hell did I walk in on at Fusion? You accused Jack of using me to make you jealous. Jack didn't use me. You did.

Erica: Oh, Carmen. I have held my tongue for quite some time now, but no more. By the time I finish with you, you're going to wish you were back in prison.

Carmen: Yeah, well, say whatever you want, but you used me to play with Jack's head.

Erica: I got you out of prison. I got you a job, I got you a -- a place to live. I helped you to transform your life. And -- and how did you show your appreciation? You pounced on my husband.

Carmen: How many times did I ask? "Are you cool with this, Erica? You sure you're all right, Erica?" You said go for it.

Erica: What planet are you from? How could you even ask? What was I supposed to say?

Carmen: Oh, you say one thing but mean the exact opposite, and I'm supposed to know?

Erica: Any woman knows that you don't ask, in the first place, a friend. I mean, you crossed the line, and you know it.

Carmen: Well, if I crossed the line, it's because you shoved me over it.

Erica: What?

Carmen: But that was all part of your plan, wasn't it? Push me to Jack so then you could reel him back in.

Erica: Are you absolutely crazy?

Carmen: Ah.

Erica: First you go after my husband, and then you accuse me? What you did was absolutely disgusting.

Carmen: "Disgusting"? Disgusting is pretending that you cared about me when all I was, was a charity case.

Erica: You were never a charity case to me, and you know that. I did care about you. Everything I did, I did from my heart. I thought you were my friend.

Carmen: I think you gave me the green light to go with Jack thinking poor, pathetic Carmen could never land your man. And I did -- easy.

Erica: I am the one who tried to get you to believe in yourself. I'm the one who tried to give you some self-esteem. I didn't know you were going to go after my husband.

Carmen: You think you're better than me, because you're rich and famous. Huh. Well, I don't need money, and I don't need you.

Erica: Rich and famous is your hang-up. I never thought that I was better than you, and you know that very, very well. But, boy, was I wrong about you. I thought you were my friend. I thought that you were real, but you are not real. You are jealous and competitive and phony.

Carmen: You know --

Erica: You're no better than that lowlife Mando who used you to rob a bank. Well, you used me as your get-out-of-jail-free ticket.

Carmen: Yeah -- inquieta. You know -- sabes porque? Porque tu eres la barata, ok? Tu eres la barata que no vales nada. Vete por el infierno.

Erica: You can swear at me all you want. I don't speak Spanish. I studied French. Ah!

Carmen: No, you're not so tough now, right, Superstar? Huh?

Erica: Take your hands off me! Are you out of your mind?

Carmen: Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Erica: Stop it! Stop it!

[Erica and Carmen's cat fight, tearing at their clothes]

[Zach and Kendall kiss and take their clothes off in front of the fireplace]

Greenlee: I remember everything and I won't do it again.

Ryan: No, you won't. You won't do it again because we're moving forward, Greenlee. All you got to do is trust me, trust what we feel.

Greenlee: I won't take that risk.

Emma: Daddy!

Ryan: Oh, hey! Hi! Did you have fun?

Emma: I saw Mommy.

[Doorbell rings]

Annie: Hey -- Pete.

Pete: Are you ok?

Annie: Uh -- sure. Um -- so did you talk to Opal?

Pete: About what?

Annie: About whether or not I can stay here.

Pete: I thought you weren't interested.

Annie: Yeah, well, I -- I changed my mind, so could you ask her?

Pete: Uh -- thing is, my mom's kind of having a hard time right now.

Annie: Pete, I mean, you can't turn me away.

Pete: I'm really sorry.

Annie: No -- Pete, I'm begging you. I have nowhere else to go, no one else to ask. Please.

Adam: Hey --

Erica: Don't go after me like that again --

Adam: What the devil is going on here?

Erica: Get away. Stop it.

Adam: Erica, Erica -- no, stop. Carmen, Carmen.

Carmen: What?

Erica: Let me at her!

Carmen: Yeah. What? Guess what, she ripped my dress!

Adam: Yeah?

Carmen: Yeah, she's a liar, a user, and a fake!

Erica: You're the fake!

Adam: No, you can't call -- that's Erica Kane. You can't talk to her that way. Nobody can talk to her that way. Erica, Erica, calm down. Come on. All right -- go. Go collect your things. You're fired.

[Carmen scoffs]

Carmen: Please. I quit! And you, you, and your husband, lover, ex-- whatever -- can all go to hell.

Erica: I believed in you. And you betrayed me. We are done. Thank you for getting that lunatic away from me.

Adam: Huh. I would do anything for you, Erica. Don't you know that?

Erica: Oh, Adam. That's a very nice sentiment. But we both know it's not true. I'll just go freshen up for dinner.

[Phone rings]

Adam: Yeah, Barry. Is it done?

J.R.: Thank you.

Babe: What is it?

J.R.: Damn it, Dad. We've been served.

Ryan: I don't understand. I thought I was really, really clear. Annie cannot spend any time with Emma unless it's a scheduled visit.

Corrina: No, I'm sorry. I didn't know she was going to be there.

[Greenlee takes the gun off the mantle and quietly leaves]

Ryan: Ok. Well, next time that happens, I'd really like you to call me, ok?

Corrina: Ok.

Ryan: All right. Can we get Emma ready for bed?

Corrina: Yeah.

Ryan: Ok, thanks. Greenlee?

Ryan: Greenlee.

Zach: Hey, where'd you go? Come back.

Kendall: Hmm. I was just thinking about us, how amazing and lucky we are. Hmm. I want to give you what you want.

Zach: You just did.

[Kendall chuckles]

Kendall: No. I want to give you the 48 hours that I owe you.

Zach: How about forever? How about that?

Kendall: I like that.

Zach: Let me show you something.

Kendall: Ok, start now?

Zach: Mm-hmm.

[Kendall giggles]

Emma: Daddy, can you read me a story?

Annie: I can't leave town. I have to be near my daughter.

Pete: She's with her dad. I'm sure he'll take good care of her.

Annie: No, you don't understand. I'm being stalked.

Pete: What?

Annie: Yeah, and the man who is after me -- I'm scared he's going to go after Emma, too. Ryan thinks I'm making all of this up, but I'm not. It is real, and I'm scared, and I'm afraid something terrible is going to happen to Emma.

Opal: You're right to be afraid, Annie. Something terrible is coming this way. It's taken its sweet time to get here, but it has finally arrived.

[Doorbell rings and continues ringing with no one at the door]
