J.R.: Maybe you're right. Maybe she'd understand.
Amanda: This was a bad idea. This is a bad idea. J.R., no.
J.R.: You're right. Nothing has ever felt this good.
Aidan: Annie, how are you?
Annie: Aidan, what are you doing here?
Aidan: You know who I am.
Annie: Uh, yeah. I mean I -- I think I do. You're Aidan.
Aidan: That's right, Annie. I'm your friend.
Annie: But -- but you're too old to be my friend. No, no, you're not my friend, you're her friend.
Aidan: Who are you talking about?
Annie: Her, the mean lady.
Aidan: You mean Greenlee.
Annie: She wants to hurt me. That's why my mommy is hiding me in here, because of her.
Annie's voice: Ok, here we go. You have no idea how to use this, do you?
Ryan's voice: I got it! I got it.
Annie: Hi, say "Hi, Daddy." Say "Hi, Dad."
Ryan: No, no, no, no, don't move.
Annie: Ready? Ready, here we go, ready?
Ryan: Quick, quick, quick.
Annie and Ryan: One, two, three -- Merry Christmas!
Annie: Good job.
Annie: The mean lady wants my daddy, and she wants me out of the way so she can get to him.
Aidan: So you know I'm not -- you don't think I'm your daddy anymore.
Annie: No, silly, you're Aidan.
Aidan: Right, I'm your friend.
Annie: Were you friends with the mean lady, too?
Aidan: I used to be. Not so much anymore.
Annie: Why? Was she mean to you, too?
Aidan: You said your mother was worried about you, and she wanted to keep you safe.
Annie: The mean lady can't get to me here. But I miss my mommy.
Aidan: Where is she?
Annie: She's at home with Daddy.
Aidan: And where's home, Annie?
Annie: Annie? My name's Emma.
Aidan: Right, sorry. Where's home, Emma?
Annie: It's at the penthouse. We live on the tippy-top floor, and I have stuffed animals, and I have toys that I keep in my bedroom, and I have a big-girl bed. We can go there if you want. Daddy showed me where he keeps a secret key. Will you take me? I want to go home.
Aidan: I know you do. I know you do, but it's safer -- it's safer here. Do you believe me?
Annie: I think I'll take a nap, now.
Aidan: Ok. Sweet dreams, Emma.
Aidan: I know something that you don't know.
Dr. Sinclair: Mr. Stone, how are you?
Aidan: On a mission to find out what's wrong with Annie.
Dr. Sinclair: I'm not sure I follow.
Aidan: The aliens, um -- they planted a chip in her head. She's acting very strange. You should go see for yourself.
Dr. Sinclair: Did you get into Annie's room again?
Aidan: I don't know, did I?
Dr. Sinclair: Uh, would you please escort Mr. Stone back to his room? And make sure the door is securely locked.
[Smoke alarm beeps]
David: Oh, my God. Krystal? Krystal! If you can hear me, you've got to get out, now! Krystal! Damn it. Yes, hi, I'd like to report a fire at 3420 Canyon Drive. Yes, I'm -- it's at 3420 Canyon Drive. There's a woman stuck inside the house. You need to get here immediately. Thank you. Krystal! Hello, Krystal!
[Knocking on door]
[Knocking on door]
Krystal: What's happening?
David: Krystal! If you can hear me, open the damn door!
Krystal: David? Ok, I'm coming, David.
[Krystal screams as she falls down the stairs]
David: What was that? Krystal? Krystal, are you all right? Krystal?
Ryan: Greenlee? I know you're in there. Please open the door. Greenlee, we both know what happened last time. Do you want me to bust it in?
Ryan: I didn't think so. Hi.
Greenlee: You really shouldn't be here, Ryan.
Ryan: Yes, I really should be here, and I'm sorry about the video, ok? Emma was just watching it --
Greenlee: Of course, she was. It's Christmas.
Ryan: I -- I didn't mean for you to see it.
Greenlee: I'm glad I did. It was a beautiful family moment.
Ryan: It was. It was a beautiful family moment, but that family doesn't exist anymore, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Because of us. Because of me.
Ryan: No, no.
Greenlee: I meant what I said in the note, Ryan. We need to forget what happened tonight.
Ryan: How is that even possible? Greenlee, every time I close my eyes, I see you. I think of you. I have wanted to be with you for so long, Greenlee. And this is it, ok?
Greenlee: But it can't be. Yes, we made love, and yes, it felt good. Ok, it was perfect. But this, you and me with Annie and Emma, it just doesn't feel right.
Ryan: That's your guilt talking.
Greenlee: No, that is the truth.
Ryan: Ok, I want you to close your eyes. Close your eyes. Do it, please. Close them. Close your eyes. Now I want you to focus, ok? Focus and please, just block out anything other than us. Just you and me, nothing else. You and me, finally, right here, right now. Can you see that?
Greenlee: Yes. But then I open my eyes --
Ryan: No buts! No, no buts. We can do this, Greenlee. All you have to do is trust me.
[Smoke alarm beeping]
[Knocking on door]
David: Krystal! Krystal. It's ok.
[David grunts as he carries Krystal outside]
David: Krystal. Krystal, come on, work with me. I'm not going to lose you, too. Krystal?
David: Oh, thank God.
Amanda: J.R., this is a bad idea.
J.R.: Oh, come on, relax. It's like you said the other night at dinner, remember? With the wine? "You don't have to drink the whole bottle." And guess what? Neither do I. You see, that's where the program goes wrong. They say if you have one drink, the whole world's going to blow up. But that's total crap. You watch and learn, Amanda. I'm going to have this one drink and off to bed I go.
Amanda: Have you ever been able to do that before?
J.R.: No, no. But this is different. I don't need the booze. God knows, I used to, but I don't anymore. No, this right here? I'm drinking this right now because, uh -- because it's Christmas. Am I being rude or what? Here, have a drink with me.
Amanda: Uh, no -- no, J.R.
J.R.: Oh, come on. Didn't you hear me? It's Christmas. It's not eggnog, but it sure is close.
Amanda: J.R., I -- uh --
J.R.: Aw, come on. You're going to make me drink alone? All right, more for me, I guess.
Amanda: Uh, all right, fine. Give me the glass.
J.R.: Ah, that-a-girl. You're a good friend, Amanda. Yeah, to -- to friends -- ones that can get you through anything. Hey, hey, hey, when you toast, you got to look a person in the eye. Otherwise, it doesn't count. To friends.
Amanda: To friends.
J.R.: Ah, yeah.
Greenlee: Of course, I trust you. I always have. It's us I don't trust. When we're together, things go wrong, Ryan.
Ryan: Things go wrong for everybody, Greenlee, they do. Things go wrong -- that's life, right? We deserve to be happy. Do you remember? You said that to me. You told me to leave Annie and live life for myself. That's what you said.
Greenlee: You should know better than to listen to me. I didn't know what I was talking about.
Ryan: You knew exactly what you were talking about, and you were right, Greenlee. And I'm right now. I'm right. God, we have spent so much time letting guilt control our actions. In the meantime, life has completely passed us by. Do you see that?
Greenlee: We were protecting the people we cared about.
Ryan: You're right. We were, and look what happened. Aidan and you are finished. Annie is in a mental institution and --
Greenlee: Exactly, exactly, because of us. And now, us being together, I -- it feels like, "Woo-hoo, Annie's in a looney bin, let's have a party!"
Ryan: No, no, Annie is not there because of us. She's not, ok? We didn't make her do the things -- we didn't make her shoot Di or stab Erica or kill her brother, none of those things. We didn't make -- those are her actions, not ours.
Greenlee: But you want her to get better.
Ryan: Yeah, I do, for her and for Emma. I don't know when it's going to happen or if it's going to happen, but I -- yeah, I want it to. The point is, I got to listen to the doctors. The doctors have made it very clear to me to stay away. The best thing for Annie is for me to stay away. Dr. Sinclair told me to get on with my life, for me, for Emma -- for you. I added that last part.
Greenlee: So, that's it?
Ryan: Yeah, that's it. I'm moving on. Say you'll move on with me.
Dr. Sinclair: Knock, knock. Mind if I come in? I'd like to talk to you. About your friend, the one who visits you. He was -- he was just in here.
Annie: Oh, him?
Dr. Sinclair: Yeah. Does someone let him in?
Annie: Mm, I don't think so.
Dr. Sinclair: What do you two talk about?
Annie: Um, we talk about Mommy and Daddy and that horrible lady.
Dr. Sinclair: What horrible lady?
Annie: The one who's trying to take my daddy. I don't want to talk about this anymore.
Dr. Sinclair: Ok. All right, um -- what would you like to talk about?
Annie: I want to go home.
Dr. Sinclair: I'm sorry. You know that's not possible.
Annie: Why? I -- I just want to go home. I just miss my mommy and daddy.
Dr. Sinclair: Annie --
Annie: Stop saying that! I am not Annie.
Dr. Sinclair: You know you don't live with your parents.
Annie: Yes, I do. We have -- we have an elevator and -- and a terrace and my daddy makes me pancakes in the morning.
Dr. Sinclair: I think you mean Ryan makes pancakes for Emma.
Annie: I am Emma!
Dr. Sinclair: All right, look, look, look at this. This -- this is your daughter.
Annie: No, it's not.
Dr. Sinclair: Yes.
Annie: That is me, I'm Emma.
Dr. Sinclair: No, this -- this is Emma.
Dr. Sinclair: She is dressed for her Christmas recital.
Annie: No, no, I am Emma! Stop saying that! I am, me, ok?
Dr. Sinclair: Ok, all right, stop, stop, stop, ok, ok. It's ok. We can -- we'll finish this another time.
Annie: It's not ok. I want the picture. I want -- give me my picture. Give it to me! You're -- give it to me! [Gasps] Oh, my God.
J.R.: God, you are hot! You still are.
Amanda: Can I get you some water? You must be seriously dehydrated.
J.R.: I don't want water. I want you.
Amanda: Ok, wow. That's the booze talking.
J.R.: Do you ever miss the sex?
Amanda: You're really going to regret this conversation in the morning.
J.R.: Because I do. I think about it all the time. We were so hot together, and it's freezing outside. So let's not let all this heat go to waste.
David: Are you sure you're ok? Any pain, any difficulty breathing?
Krystal: I don't think so, no.
Fireman: The fire's out, ma'am. In the living room there's some damage, but all in all, you're lucky.
David: Thank you.
Krystal: How did this happen? I did this. Oh, my God, David. This was my fault. When -- when I trashed the living room, I must have knocked over a candle or --
David: You didn't know.
Krystal: Oh, my God, what if the girls were here? What if --
David: They weren't, ok? They're fine.
Krystal: Tad is going to kill me.
David: Tad doesn't have to know.
Krystal: Are you -- are you kidding? There was a fire, there was damage. Of course, he's going to find out.
Fireman: Does she need to go to the hospital?
David: No, no, she's ok. I'm a doctor. I'll make sure she'll be fine.
David: Come on.
Krystal: Where are we going?
David: I'm taking you to my place.
Krystal: No, no, I'm -- I'm going to stay here. I'm going to stay here and wait for Tad.
David: You can wait for Tad tomorrow. Krystal, you can't spend the night here. The place needs to air out. Please, you're sick, you're not feeling well, right? You're scared. Let me take care of you.
David: Ok, all right, come on, come on. It's ok.
Annie: You -- you can get up now, Doctor. This isn't funny. Doctor? Oh, God, no. I didn't do it. I didn't do it. It wasn't me, it wasn't me, it wasn't me. It wasn't me.
Greenlee: You know, you make it sound so easy to move forward, to leave Annie, Aidan, this whole mess behind us.
Ryan: Because it can be.
Greenlee: Until you get the next phone call from Oak Haven, or Emma asks about her mom, or I stumble onto another home video. I mean, it's always going to be there, Ryan. The big, fat elephant in the room.
Ryan: Well, then, I'll tell Dumbo to get out. I'll kick him out. I'll be like, "Dumbo, get out." That's what I'll do. Come on, everybody gets second chances, Greenlee. Why can't we have another one?
Greenlee: Maybe if it was just us. But there's Emma.
Ryan: I know, but I've been honest. I've been as honest as I can be with her.
Greenlee: Well, it's not easy for a six-year-old to understand something like this. Believe me, I know. My parents' problems, you know?
Ryan: What -- Emma is so lucky to have people that love her and that explain this to her. She's got you, she's got me --
Greenlee: Yeah, I didn't exactly learn the best parenting skills from Roger and Mary.
Ryan: Are you kidding me right now? You were so incredible with her, the way that you talk to her, the way you make her feel safe. You're her best friend -- her words, Greenlee, remember?
Greenlee: Like I could ever forget. I just -- I feel like I'm stealing someone's family.
Ryan: Stop. I love you, and I know you love me, Greenlee, and this is our moment, ok? I know it's not perfect, but it's ours. It's our moment, and we would be crazy -- we would be crazy not to take advantage of that.
Greenlee: But what about --?
Ryan: What, everyone? Everybody else? There's three people that I -- that I need to take care of right now, three people. And that's you, Spike, and Emma, all right? The four of us, we can be a family together. We can. We've wasted so much time, Greenlee. I don't want to waste any more.
Greenlee: You, me, Emma, and Spike -- I want that. I want that. It's just -- we've done this before, Ryan. We've given in, and we've said, "To hell with everyone else." And then what happens? We get a phone call, or there's a tornado, or a child gets kidnapped. It never works.
Ryan: I'll make it work. We will. The two of us together, we're going to -- we'll wake up together, we'll go to bed together. We'll grow old together. We'll get gray and wrinkly together.
Greenlee: As if I'd ever let myself go gray.
Ryan: Take this leap with me.
Greenlee: I can't.
Ryan: Yes, you can, Greenlee. I know it's scary. I'm scared, too, ok? But nothing has ever felt so right.
Greenlee: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Stop saying all the right things. Just stop.
Greenlee: Because the only thing worse than not having you is having you and losing you again. I can't do that again, Ryan. I can't. I won't.
Ryan: You're right, you won't, because I will never leave you again, Greenlee.
Greenlee: You can't promise that.
Ryan: You're right. I could get hit by a bus next week.
Greenlee: Are you trying to hospitalize me?
Ryan: I'm just saying that I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know. I don't know these things. I don't know what's in store for us. But what I do know is that I will spend every minute, every second, showing you how much I love you.
Greenlee: Could you be any harder to fight?
Ryan: Well, I could do this.
[Ryan kisses Greenlee]
Ryan: And this.
[Ryan kisses Greenlee]
Ryan: I'm going to make it ok.
Greenlee: I know.
Orderly: Good night, Doctor.
Aidan: Hey, let me out of here! I need to get out! Let me out.
Orderly: Keep it down, Mr. Stone.
Aidan: No, you don't understand. A woman's in danger. I need to help her.
Orderly: Sure you do. Don't worry, superspy, you can save her tomorrow.
Krystal: Yes, yes, Opal, I'm -- I'm fine. I mean, the house is a little smoky, but it will be aired out by tomorrow. No, thank you for the offer. I think I'm going to, um, spend the night at Jesse and Angie's. I just -- I don't want the girls to see me this shaken up, you know? Mm-hmm. Yeah, give him a kiss for me, ok? Ok. Good night.
David: Everything ok?
Krystal: Yeah. The girls are asleep, dreaming of Santa. Where did you go? What you got there?
David: The fruits of Santa's labors.
Krystal: You went back to my house?
David: Yeah. I didn't want the presents to start smelling like a bonfire.
Krystal: Thank you.
Krystal: Look, um, David, I'm sorry about earlier, about going ballistic -- you know, throwing you out.
David: No, no, it's all right. I had it coming. I should have told you that I gave you pills for anxiety.
Krystal: Yes, you should have.
David: I was trying to help, Krystal. You really needed to get some rest.
Krystal: Well, listen, what's, um -- what's done is done. And you saving those presents, I --
David: Come on, please. You give me more credit than I deserve. Look, why don't you get some sleep, ok? You've been through quite an ordeal.
Krystal: Yeah, not your typical Christmas Eve, that's for sure. Oh, God, when I think about what could have happened if you hadn't been there. I don't want to think about it.
David: Then don't.
Krystal: I can't help it. I mean, I could have left Jenny without a mother, and Kathy -- I mean, that poor girl couldn't go through another loss.
David: Everything worked out. You're fine.
Krystal: Because of you.
David: You think you'll be able to get some sleep?
David: I could help move it along.
Krystal: No. No more drugs.
David: Krystal, I understand, ok? But you just went through a house fire. Your nerves are shot. Your mind is racing. Am I right? Well, let me help take the edge off, just for tonight.
Krystal: It's safe?
Krystal: Ok. Ok.
David: All right.
David: Yeah. Any time.
Amanda: J.R., don't you think that you've had enough?
J.R.: Oh, come on. Don't, don't. Don't be a party pooper, not on Christmas. You didn't come here to get wasted, why did you come here?
Amanda: To check on you and Little A and make sure you were all right. He really is a great kid.
J.R.: Oh, he's the best, the best. And he really likes you. We both really like you.
J.R.: You know what else I like?
Amanda: You want to dance?
Amanda: Right now?
J.R.: Yeah. There's a bar down the road. They got a jukebox.
Amanda: Little Adam is asleep. You want to leave him here by himself? Oh, no, I got it.
J.R.: No, look, I spilled it. I spilled it. I'll clean it up.
Amanda: I've got it. It's fine.
J.R.: What is this? What kind of question is that? It's a shell, genius. It's Little A's magic shell. I'm so glad I found it.
Amanda: Yeah, I know how much it means to you guys.
J.R.: Yeah, it's Little A's last connection to his mother. God, I should never have let it out of my sight.
Amanda: It wasn't your fault, J.R. There was a hole in your pocket. Hey, you ok?
J.R.: Just great. I found a stupid shell.
Amanda: But I thought -- I thought you were happy.
J.R.: Happy? Babe said that this was a magic shell. Why didn't it save her?
Amanda: J.R. --
J.R.: She was young and beautiful and the best mom in the entire world. Why, Amanda? Why?
Amanda: I don't know.
J.R.: It's my fault that she's dead.
Amanda: What? No, it was a freak tornado. There was nothing that you could do.
J.R.: I should have held on to her tighter. It should have been me under that beam, not her. [Sobbing] It should have been me.
David: Here you go. One glass of laced milk. Not funny?
David: Sorry. Why don't you drink it and get some sleep, all right?
Krystal: Thank you. I don't want to -- I don't want to fall apart.
David: No one does.
Krystal: I mean, I can't. I can't fall apart. I've got two little girls who need me.
David: Do you realize how lucky you are?
Krystal: Sometimes. And then other times, it's just so hard. I mean, I -- I can't stop thinking about Babe.
David: The other night, when I was reading to Kathy -- God, I just thought, if I could just have something, you know? Anything like this in my life.
Krystal: Maybe someday you will.
[A clock chimes]
Krystal: Wow. Is that --?
David: Yep, it's officially Christmas. Oh, I have something for you.
Krystal: A Christmas gift?
David: Yeah, I guess you could call it that. Here, I'll take this.
Krystal: I didn't get you anything.
David: Oh, well, in that case -- just open it.
Krystal: It's beautiful.
David: Look inside.
[Krystal opens a heart pendant with Babe's picture inside]
David: You like it?
Krystal: It's so sweet. It is so thoughtful. It's the nicest gift anybody's ever given me.
Aidan: Let me out, or I'll break this door down.
Orderly: Mr. Stone, what are you doing?
Aidan: What does it look like?
Aidan: I'm getting out of here.
Orderly: Put the chair down. I'm going to open the door. Now, you want to tell me what's going on?
Aidan: I told you. A woman's in danger.
Annie: Mommy? Daddy? Is anybody home?
[Ryan and Greenlee go at it]
Singer: If all the things I had to do always was you everything we used to do was something between me and you
Greenlee: Thank you.
Ryan: For what?
Greenlee: For making me believe again.
Amanda: J.R. Hey, are you awake?
David: Finally, an update. How is "Operation Lush" going?
Amanda: I did it.
David: J.R.'s fallen off the wagon?
Amanda: More like nosedived. He's a total mess. Happy?
David: Extremely. Why do I get the sense that you're not?
Amanda: I hate you for making me do this.
David: Making you? Last I checked, I was paying you. Congratulations, sweetheart, you're a very rich girl. I suggest you go out and celebrate.
Aidan: Dr. Sinclair, can you hear me?
Dr. Sinclair: What happened? Where's -- where's Annie?
Aidan: She's gone.
Annie: Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite.
[While Ryan sleeps next to her, Greenlee dreams that she's drowning in a bathtub]
