Taylor: Hi, can I have a cab, please, to 105 Garden Drive? Pine Valley Hospital.

[Knock on door]

Taylor: Um, can you -- would you just -- can you hold on just one -- just give me one second, please.

Brot: Brr.

Taylor: Hey.

Brot: Hey. Thought you might need a lift to physical therapy.

Taylor: Um, hi. You can cancel that cab. My -- my ride actually pulled through.

Jake: Dad? Any -- any news from the Congo?

Joe: Well, it's not good, I'm afraid.

Jake: What did Tad say? Did he find Jamie and Jeff?

Joe: I haven't spoken with Tad. Nobody has. He was reported missing this morning.

David: Hey. You hungry?

Krystal: Hmm.

David: You slept through breakfast, but I could always whip us up a late lunch.

Krystal: Oh. It's after 2:00. Why didn't you wake me?

David: You obviously needed the rest.

Krystal: Ugh, no. No, I need to -- I need to get home for the girls.

David: The girls are with Winifred. It's all right.

Krystal: No, nothing is all right. I'm a married woman.

David: Whose husband can't be bothered to pick up the phone.

[Krystal sighs]

Krystal: Tad has a lot on his mind. His son and his brother are missing. They need his full attention.

David: And what about what you need, Krystal? Shouldn't somebody pay attention to that?

J.R.: Hey, Zach. How's Kendall?

Zach: When there's good news, you will hear.

Bianca: Three hours picking out napkin rings. Three hours! Never mind that they're going to be used for all of two seconds before the dinner.

Reese: W-wait a minute. Dinner? What -- when did we decide we were having an evening ceremony?

Bianca: Oh, we didn't. My mother did.

[Greenlee gasps when she sees herself dead in a bathtub]

Ryan: Greenlee? You all right?

Greenlee: Yeah, ahem. It was just a dream. That's all.

Ryan: Oh, good.

Taylor: Hey, would you do me a favor? Would you grab my headphones? I don't know where they are.

Brot: Already in the bag along with the bottle of water, and I got you a little snack, too.

Taylor: You remembered.

Brot: How could I forget? You used to, like, live off of these things.

Taylor: Because they were so much better than half the MREs we were eating.

Brot: That is very true, and they went a lot further than cash. I remember you could get just about anything with a box of those things.

Taylor: Oh, yeah. We got a bottle of wine a time or two if I remember. Drinking all night under the stars till dawn.

Brot: Yeah.

Taylor: I miss that the most.

Brot: Yeah, we should -- we should get going, ok?

Taylor: Why can't we talk? Why do you do that? Why do you pull away every time we get close? Like the other day, you walked out of here. I didn't know where you went. I didn't know if I'd ever see you again.

Brot: I told you I'm not going to leave without telling you bye first.

Taylor: So you are going to leave, though? That's what you're saying?

Brot: What I'm saying is that we should leave, because you're going to be late for P.T.

Taylor: P.T. can wait. This can't. I want to finish the conversation.

Brot: Nothing is more important than you getting better, ok? I'm going to go get the car.

Jake: First of all, Tad's been gone like -- two weeks already, he's down there. How come we're only hearing this now?

Joe: There was a rebel uprising near the village where Jamie and Jeff worked, and, apparently, the communication was broken up, and they're just getting reports from -- now.

Jake: Dad, first of all, he's got a wife. He's got kids. I should -- I should have gone instead of him. Is there anything I can do at all?

Jake: Yes, pray they're all found safe and sound.

Krystal: This was a mistake. I never should have come here.

David: Oh, Krystal. You were hurting, and you needed someone to lean on, someone who understands your pain. You helped me through a very dark period after Babe died. If it weren't for you, I would've pulled that trigger and ended my life. You brought me back from the edge, Krystal. I owe you so much. Not only did you give me a beautiful daughter, but you gave me a reason to live.

Krystal: You did the same for me. You know, I was praying that the pain and the grief would just swallow me whole, and then you came along. No pressure, no expectations. You just -- you let me be me, and I -- I needed that -- that freedom, you know? I needed that -- that peaceful place where I could go and get away from everything else in my life. The house. The kids. Tad.

David: I am here whenever you need to get away.

[David and Krystal kiss]

J.R.: Hi. Is Dr. Hayward still working?

Woman: He's not on the schedule today, but he'll be here later for the wing dedication.

J.R.: Thank you.

Woman: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Hi.

J.R.: Hey, uh, Amanda, wait.

Amanda: Why?

J.R.: Look, I've been calling. Why are you avoiding me?

Amanda: We've been over this, J.R. You are much better off without me as a friend.

J.R.: Well, shouldn't I get to choose who I'd like to be friends with?

Amanda: That's the problem. When you're around me, you don't always make the best decisions.

Bianca: She has an entire book of reception ideas, everything from china patterns to the place cards. There's a whole chapter on candelabras.

Reese: Oh.

Bianca: I -- I love her. I know that she means well, but this thing is just starting to take on a life of its own.

Reese: Ok, sweetie, it is not too late to just go elope. We can pack up the girls, we can drive over to Connecticut, where we will be legally married, and then we can avoid the stress of Erica planning the commitment-palooza of the century.

Bianca: That is the best idea I've heard all day.

Reese: Yeah?

Bianca: Yeah.

Reese: Good, then let's pack it up and go.

Bianca: Just like that?

Reese: Yeah, why not? Because then it would be about our love instead of candelabras.

Bianca: Oh. I --

Reese: What?

Bianca: I don't know. I -- I just don't want it to seem like, you know, we're rushing off to get married, because we're ashamed or something. I'm proud of my family, and --

Reese: So am I. Ok, what are we going to do? How about compromising? We will have a small ceremony with a few friends and select family members.

Bianca: Oh, right.

Reese: Yes.

Bianca: Yes, perfect.

Reese: Ok.

Bianca: When?

Reese: Sooner the better.

Bianca: Then we will need my mother's help, because we'll never be able to book a place on such short notice without, you know, her connections.

Zach: Hi.

Bianca: Hi.

Reese: Well, hi.

Zach: Sorry, I was talking to the owner, and he said if you're still looking for a place, he'd be happy to have you, and you can have your ceremony anytime you like right here.

Ryan: Annie is locked up at Oak Haven, ok? She's -- she's locked up. She cannot hurt you anymore.

Greenlee: Yeah, you know I wish it was that easy, out of sight, out of mind, but Annie will always be a part of our lives. She'll always be a part of Emma's life. She's her mother, Ryan. Nothing is going to change that.

Ryan: You're right except that Annie is too sick to be a mother right now. She needs help, and she needs a lot more help than I can give her, ok? And, yeah, for Emma's sake, I hope the psychiatrist will be able to help her, reach her in a way that I wasn't able to do, but we can't just kind of sit around and wait for that to happen. I don't even know if it's going to happen, so we've got to move on. We've got to focus on -- on our life and our future.

Greenlee: Heh. New year, new start?

Ryan: Yeah. Something like that. Tell you what. Whatever resolutions you had, throw them away, and you and I will just focus on one.

Greenlee: What would that be?

Ryan: When the clock strikes midnight, we'll stop dwelling on the past, and we will just focus on the future. That's it. What do you say?

Greenlee: You got a deal.

Ryan: Yeah? Ok.

J.R.: Ok, it was my choice to drink, so quit beating yourself up for testing me. It was my first Christmas alone without Babe. I needed something, anything, to numb the pain. It was a weak moment that had absolutely nothing to do with our friendship.

Amanda: A friend would've had your back. I didn't. I can't. I'm -- I'm too selfish to ever put anyone else first.

J.R.: No, that's not true. You were great friends with Babe.

Amanda: Not always. It wasn't that long ago that Babe couldn't stand me. I went after the only two men she ever loved, you and Jamie. A friend doesn't do that. But despite it all, she was able to look past it and forgive me and believe in me. This is how I repay her.

J.R.: Amanda? Hey.

Jake: Whoa, what's up? Maybe you want to hit me again. I'm not drunk this time. I'm warning you.

J.R.: You deserved a hell of a lot more than that bruised chin the way you talked to Amanda.

Jake: You know, actually -- you're right. You're right. I did. Ok?

J.R.: All right. Look, that's besides the point anyway, ok? I'm worried about Krystal.

Jake: I don't know what Tad was thinking going to the Congo by himself.

J.R.: Why? What happened to Tad?

Jake: He's missing. I thought you knew that because you mentioned Krystal.

J.R.: No, no, I didn't know that. He has to get back here. Hayward's worming his way into Krystal's life. He's getting closer to Little Adam every single day.

Jake: David Hayward has blackmailed my father, and now he can't seem to stay away from my brother's wife. I don't know about you, but I've had just about all I can take of David Hayward trying to get away with murder.

[Phone rings]

David: Ignore it.

Krystal: No, it's probably Winifred wondering where I am.

Krystal: Hello?

Joe: Krystal, it's Joe. We need to talk.

Krystal: What's wrong?

Joe: It's not anything I want to get into over the telephone. Can you come down to the hospital?

Krystal: Well, yeah. I'll be there later, Joe, for the -- you know, for the -- the ceremony.

Joe: No, no, this can't wait, Krystal.

Krystal: Oh, ok. Well, I have to make some arrangements with the kids first.

Joe: Just ask a nurse to have me paged when you get here, ok?

[Krystal sighs]

David: What?

Krystal: That was Joe. He probably knows I spent the night here.

David: It's not possible. He'd have to scale a tree two stories to peer into the bedroom window. And Joe is a lot of things, but he's not a peeping tom. Hey, what's happened is just between us, all right? Nobody ever has to know.

Zach: You can use the grand ballroom when it's finished, which, right now, it's not, so maybe just wait a little while longer or wear hard hats with your dresses.

Reese: Oh, that would be nice. Can you imagine the look on Erica's face?

Bianca: Uh, yeah.

Reese: Ok, well, fortunately, the contractor gave me his word. The ballroom, casino, everything will be done by the deadline.

Zach: Really?

Reese: Mm-hmm.

Zach: How's that going to happen? No one's working.

Reese: Well, there's a crew coming in first thing in the morning to meet the deadline.

Zach: What's wrong with working tonight?

Bianca: It's New Year's Eve?

Zach: I forgot.

Reese: Zach, come with us to ConFusion.

Zach: No, I don't want to do that. I don't feel like celebrating. You guys go ahead.

Bianca: Ok, well, then, what if we spent New Year's here, the three of us? That would give us a night away from the kids, and, you know, you'd have a couple extra sets of hands to sort of get everything finished before the opening.

Reese: That's a great idea, and we don't have to stand in line for drinks.

Zach: Are you using me for my liquor?

Reese: Yes. Is there a problem with that?

Greenlee: Emma is going to Opal's?

Ryan: Yeah, she's having another sleepover, which means you and I are all alone to bring in the new year.

Greenlee: Really?

Ryan: Yeah, all alone. Got a few ideas on how we can celebrate.

Greenlee: Yeah?

Ryan: Yeah. I have a few of my own.

Ryan: Really?

Greenlee: Yeah. But the details are going to have to wait till I get back.

Ryan: What? That is so cruel.

Greenlee: Well, I promised Bianca I'd sit with Kendall for a little while.

Ryan: Promise me you'll be wearing nothing underneath that coat when you come back.

Greenlee: That can definitely be arranged.

Ryan: Really?

Greenlee: Yeah.

Ryan: Mmm.

Greenlee: See you later.

Ryan: See you later.

[Door closes]

Ryan: Hey, my princess. The movie over?

Emma: Where's Greenlee?

Ryan: Oh, she had to go to the hospital to spend a little time with Spike's mommy.

Emma: Is Greenlee my new mommy now?

Ryan: Your mommy loves you very, very, very much, and that is never, ever going to change.

Emma: Then why did she leave?

Ryan: Well, your mommy's still sick, and she needed to go back to the hospital, the special hospital, that -- that gives her the help that she needs to get better. And I -- I know it's really hard for you. I know when you want to see your mommy, and she's not here, and you want to tell her about your day, but I -- Emma, anytime you want to talk, anytime you want a hug, any -- anything like that, you just -- you tell me, ok? I will always, always be here for you.

Emma: What about Greenlee? Will she be here, too?

Ryan: Well, would you like Greenlee to spend a little bit more time with us?

Emma: When Greenlee's here, you're not sad anymore.

Ryan: That's true, that's true. Greenlee does make me very happy, doesn't she? You know, there's somebody else in my life that -- that makes me really happy, too, and she likes to be tickled. She always laughs when I -- she always laughs when I tickle her. She always laughs when I tickle her. The tickle monster. Tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle.

Greenlee: Did I miss my shift?

Bianca: Oh, no, no. You're right on time. We just -- we just decided to come wish Kendall a Happy New Year.

Reese: Yeah.

Bianca: I'll be right back.

Reese: Ok.

Greenlee: So, did you set the big date yet?

Reese: Oh, no, not yet. But I really feel the sooner, the better, because our relationship has been on such a whirlwind. Do you know that within just a little over a year we met, we fell in love, we had a baby, got engaged, so I don't know. I figure, why draw things out now?

Greenlee: Yeah, well, you know, you and Bianca are lucky. If Ryan and I could go back and choose whirlwind, we would, but too much baggage to go back now.

Reese: Oh. You know, our relationship is the same as any others. You know, it's got its ups, it's got its downs, and possibly even more, since we met and fell in love so fast. You know, it takes a long time to get to know somebody, and everything that you want to know about that person. It hasn't been easy, but I think that anything worth having never really is.

Jake: Oh, no. Hold it. Hold on a second. I ordered a full workup over an hour ago.

Sheila: We're short-staffed tonight. I'll get to it as soon I can.

Jake: That's fine, but it only takes a minute to draw blood, right? Now, while we're having this exchange, I could've filled, what, three vials, so I just need one. Is that a problem, Sheila? Is that a problem?

Sheila: No, no.

Jake: Thank you.

Taylor: Wow. Happy New Year's Eve to you, too. What's going on?

Jake: I have two brothers and a nephew that have gone missing in the Congo, and I haven't heard anything from anybody about anything at all.

Taylor: How long have they been missing?

Jake: It's -- it's been a couple of weeks, and I'm just -- I'm kind of in some sort of a holding pattern, and I'm -- I'm pulling the hair out of -- out of my head. I'm going crazy.

Taylor: Jake, I'm so sorry.

Jake: Yeah, I'm -- here. Have a seat. And so, um, how are you?

Taylor: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. You've got enough going on. You don't need to hear my problems.

Jake: No, see, this is exactly my problem. I talk to people. They don't tell me anything, and maybe if you said something, it would just help me. It would help me with this deafening silence that I get. Well, for example, I called the relief agent, and I get no relief when I call the relief agent.

Taylor: Well, how about I asked Brot if he was leaving town.

Jake: Yeah, so what did he say?

Taylor: He said we'd talk about it later.

Jake: Hmm.

Taylor: But that's what he does. I get close, so then he pulls back, and he disappears.

Jake: You know, you know what I say. I'd say to you that if he was really leaving, really leaving, he would've left by now, no?

Taylor: See, I think this is all coming from some warped sense of responsibility. He looks at me, and he just sees a big, fat IOU.

Jake: Hmm. Well, at the very least, he owes you some sort of an explanation.

Taylor: He feels obligated to help, and I'll tell you, as soon as he senses I can really walk, he is going to skip town, and he is never looking back, and I'm going to be left wondering, "Where is he? How is he?" And -- and that could be worse than when I thought he was dead, because at least then --

Jake: Then what? He had closure?

Brot: Mr. Slater. You have a minute?

Zach: Call me Zach. How can I help you?

Brot: I believe you've done more than enough already. Getting me out of jail, and I just got word that the charges were dropped. Now, I'm still unsure of how you -- how you've managed to do that, or better yet, why you would do that.

Zach: You're a free man. How and the why really isn't that important.

Brot: It is important to me, because I don't want to feel like I owe you anything.

David: Everything's in order?

Woman: Yes, just as you suggested.

David: Great.

J.R.: Why the rush? The wing's not even done.

David: Well, the holidays were difficult, to say the least, so I wanted something positive to focus my energies on, so I wouldn't feel so lonely without Babe. I'm sure you can relate.

J.R.: You can't be that lonely. Colby saw you at Tad's with Krystal and the kids, celebrating Christmas. You know, you two have been spending a lot of time together.

David: Hmm, I would have much preferred to spend the holidays with my grandson, watching him open presents, but, since you elected to whisk him away on an impromptu ski trip, that option wasn't available to me. Speaking of the trip, how was the time at the lodge, hmm? Time well spent, I hope. Maybe one of those trips neither of you will ever forget.

Joe: Oh.

Krystal: Sorry I couldn't get here sooner. I had to pack up the kids and drop them off at Opal's for a sleepover. What did you want to talk to me about?

Joe: Why don't we go in here? Maybe you'd better sit down.

Krystal: Joe, what's wrong?

Joe: This is about Tad. He was reported missing this morning. What we're trying to do is establish a timeline to figure out how long he -- you all right, Krys -- Krystal? Nurse! We need a monitor and oxygen in here.

David: All right. Ok, Krystal, ok, just calm down and take some deep breaths.

Krystal: I can't.

David: Yes, yes, you can. You can. It'll pass, ok? Just focus on your breathing. You can do this.

Krystal: No, no!

David: Everything's going to be fine.

Krystal: No, it is not! Now, stop it! Get away from me.

J.R.: You heard her, Hayward. Get your hands off her.

Joe: Krystal, you should go home now and lie down.

Krystal: After the ceremony.

Joe: Why put yourself through that?

Krystal: Joe, this ceremony is to honor Babe.

Joe: David is just using Babe's memory as an excuse to address the staff. He's hoping to convince them that he alone is responsible for saving the hospital from going down the drain.

Jake: Hey, I got a page. What's up?

J.R.: Panic attack. Completely lost it when Joe told her about Tad.

Jake: What does everybody expect? It's a huge shock to the system.

J.R.: Yeah, unfortunately, for all of us. Krystal is the only one who went to Hayward for comfort. Yeah, she let him have it a minute later, but she had guilt all over her face.

Zach: I'm the one who was repaying a debt. Taylor needed help, and I felt I owed that to her and owed it to you, too.

Brot: But you knew nothing about me.

Zach: I know what it's like to want to be someone else. New name, new place, new start. When I was 18, I set my car on fire. Wanted people to believe that I -- I died in there.

Brot: What? You let people think you burned to death?

Zach: I didn't say it was pretty story. And for years, I lived as a dead man. Didn't want anyone to get close to me, and no one ever did, so it's a life I wouldn't want for anyone. I wanted you to be free and clear, so you didn't have to keep running.

David: First, I want to thank all of you for coming here this afternoon. Now, as you all know, each and every resident of Pine Valley was affected by the tornados in one way or another. Homes were damaged, lives were lost, and families were changed forever, including my own. My beautiful daughter Babe was trapped at The Comeback when one of the first funnel clouds touched down. She passed, leaving behind a gorgeous little boy, who will now have to grow up without his mother. So, with that in mind, I've decided to rebuild this wing as a way of preserving Babe's memory for her son, so, for all those whose lives she's touched and for those she will continue to touch through the services provided right here in this very hospital. Now, although Babe's death was devastating, her mother and I take great comfort in knowing that eventually some good will come from all this heartache.

Krystal: Excuse me. It's all right.

J.R.: Krystal.

Krystal: Excuse me. Sorry.

Joe: Hold on. I'll go, I'll go.

David: So, without further ado, I give you the Babe Chandler Cardiac Memorial Wing.

Woman: I invite you all to stay for a toast. Dr. Hayward has graciously provided champagne, so please grab a glass, and let's all go to --

Jake: Just, uh, sorry. Before you do that, before you all go, you know, toast the great Dr. Hayward, there's something you should probably know about your new chief of staff. Uh, for example, how he blackmailed his predecessor, Joe Martin, and an outstanding doctor here at the hospital for over 40 years, into stepping down so that he could step up into, you know, taking over that position. I'm sorry I interrupted you. You know, this might be a good time if you want to brag about whatever it is, whatever dirty little secret you have over my father.

[David chuckles]

Jake: Be a good time.

David: Boy, Jake, I don't know which is worse, your bad timing or your bad taste. Look, we can all agree that Joe Martin is an excellent, excellent physician, but it was his choice to step down as chief of staff, so that he might focus on his family, particularly on his youngest son Jake, who, unlike his father, has left this hospital open to all sorts of lawsuits during his tenure here, from renegade surgeries to dumping his caseload on interns, so that he can be free to romance patients in his care. Now, his father may have made allowances for his actions in the past, but as the new chief of staff I can assure that I won't be so lenient. As a matter of fact, as my first official order of business, I am removing Jake Martin from this hospital staff effective immediately.

Taylor: I mean, I knew physical therapy was going to be hard, but it's like every step is so painful.

Brot: Yeah, I can understand. I can -- I just know that if you keep working at it, eventually, you'll be getting around on your own.

Taylor: What if I'm not? What if this is as good as it gets?

Brot: Meaning this? So, you're telling me you're willing to settle? Lugging this thing around everywhere you go? The Taylor I know is not a quitter. And she can accomplish anything, as long as she set her mind to it.

Taylor: Well, the Taylor you know used to have two legs that worked.

Brot: They do work. They just need a little practice. That's it, and I think we should start right now.

Taylor: What are you doing?

Brot: Seeing how far you can go on your own without any help. Care to join?

Taylor: Nothing?

[Taylor groans]

Brot: There we go.

[Taylor sighs]

Taylor: I can do this -- wait. Ok. Ok.

Brot: One -- two -- there you go, see? You got it. See? See?

[Taylor hangs on Brot's neck]

Brot: You should, uh, should sit down.

Taylor: What?

Brot: I know you're tired, and I shouldn't have pushed you.

Taylor: I'm not tired. Let's try it one more time.

Brot: No, no, no, no, no, no. It's -- it's getting late, and you should probably try to get some sleep, ok? All right.

Krystal's voice: Hi, this is Krystal. I can't come to the phone right now. Please leave a message.

David: Where the hell are you?

Krystal: Looking for me?

Greenlee: Ryan.


[Greenlee and Ryan laugh]

Ryan: Happy New Year.

Greenlee: Wow. You really went all out. Remind me to thank Opal in the morning.

Ryan: Did you keep your promise?

Greenlee: Nothing but Fusion Charm underneath?

Ryan: Mmm, good.

Greenlee: What is it?

Ryan: Open it.

Greenlee: Wow, you're a good wrapper. Oh. Ryan, it's gorgeous.

Ryan: Go put it on.

Greenlee: But I thought we were taking things off.

Ryan: Oh, we'll get to that. There's something I want to do first.

Reese: Drinking alone?

Zach: Not anymore. Where's Bianca?

Reese: Oh, Gabby woke up, and she demanded a feeding, so Bianca wanted me to come along, so you didn't think we stood you up, but she will be here when the ball drops.

Zach: Never the same when kids are around, is it?

Reese: Hmm, no. God, it's amazing. You know, just a year ago, Gabby was nothing but a dream we all had, and now, here she is, controlling everything in my life, and I couldn't be happier about it.

Zach: She's a great little kid.

Reese: Yes, she is, but you're not exactly impartial. She wouldn't be here without you.

Zach: There's nothing I wouldn't do for you and Bianca.

Bianca: Ok, Rachel, Reese and I both have our cell phones, and so does Zach, so if you need anything, anything --

Rachel: We'll be fine.

Bianca: Ok. Thank you.

Rachel: Have a good night.

Bianca: Thank you very much. Happy New Year.

Rachel: Thanks.

[Gabrielle cries]

Bianca: Oh. Thank you. Oh!

Man: Look, I'm sorry.

Bianca: Oh, God.

Man: I didn't mean to scare you. The door opened before I could knock.

Bianca: Can I help you?

Man: I hope so. I'm looking for Reese Williams.

David: Are you all right?

Krystal: What kind of question is that? My life is a wreck, and it's all your fault. Ever since you turned up back in Pine Valley, I've been -- I'm trashing my life and my marriage and --

David: Well, if it helps to put the blame of me, go right ahead, but it's not going to bring Babe back. Nothing will. That's what has you so upset. You loved her, and she's gone.

Krystal: I miss her so much.

David: I know, I know, I know, I know.

Amanda: You going to be ok?

Jake: You say that like you actually might care. I'm so sorry. I treated you so -- so poorly, and I used the H word. I said "hooker."

Amanda: You were an ass, no question, but it doesn't even compare to the things David does. I mean, everything you said was true. He is a bully who actually gets off on putting people though hell.

Jake: Yeah, well, don't worry. Won't be long till David Hayward gets what he deserves.

Amanda: You don't need that.

J.R.: You're right. I need you.

Bianca: I'm -- I'm sorry. You are?

Simon: Where are my manners? Simon Marshall. I'm --

Bianca: You're the man that Reese was planning to marry.

Reese: I cannot believe that Bianca's going to miss the ball drop.

Zach: Well, let's consider this a practice run.

Reese: Oh.

Zach: Here we go.

Man: Here we go. 10 -- 9 -- 8 --

Zach: Eight --

Zach and Reese and Man: 7 -- 6 -- 5 -- 4 -- 3 -- 2 -- 1 --

Man: Happy New Year!

Zach and Reese: Happy New Year.

Reese: To the year ahead. I hope it is filled with lots of hope, love, and laughter.

Zach: Me, too. Cheers.

Reese: Cheers.

Zach: Mmm.

Reese: Mmm, that's good. Wow. You know, all that was missing was my love. And my New Year's kiss.

[Reese giggles as Zach nibbles on her ear]

["Auld Lang Syne" plays]

Zach: Happy New Year.

["Auld Lang Syne" plays]

Ryan: Was this worth getting dressed for?

Greenlee: I can't think of a more perfect way to kick off the new year than to be right here in your arms.

Ryan: You know, there were times that I never thought we would find our way back. And yet, through everything, through everything that's happened, we're right where we belong. Through fate or destiny or the moon. I don't know -- I don't know what it was, but there was -- there was something that was pulling us back together. There really was. And this is where we were meant to be. You are the love of my life, Greenlee. And I don't want to live it without you. Will you marry me?

Greenlee: I can't.
