Natalia: So, first, we do firearms training. What? Then criminal law. I knew the police academy would be cool, but this, this is like, wow.
Jesse: You sound just like I did back in the day.
Jesse: So excited.
Natalia: I can't wait to tell mom about my classes.
Jesse: When's she due back from Denver?
Natalia: Uh, tomorrow, but I -- I don't know -- I wish she was here now, you know? So she could help us celebrate.
Jesse: Celebrate what?
Natalia: Happy birthday, Daddy-O.
Jake: How's it going? First shift back, huh?
Angie: Long, draining -- loved every minute.
Jake: I know exactly what you mean. I can't believe it. I actually missed it, too.
Frankie: Yeah, well, if I had known you guys were going to hog all the patients, I'd have taken the day off.
Angie: All right, we need to move or we'll never pull this off.
Jake: Mm-hmm. Are we ready?
Frankie: Are you ever ready for something like this?
Angie: Everyone knows what they have to do, right?
David: This isn't school recess. Do you have patients to see?
Angie: Yeah, but if you'd bothered to check your schedule, you would know that Jake and I are off the clock. Let's get out of here.
Tad: So just exactly how long is this supposed to take?
Livia: Dividing up your things isn't fun, but it has to be done to finalize the divorce.
Krystal: Where do we start?
Jay: With the most substantial items, the house and The Comeback property. Now, my advice is to sell both, split the proceeds.
Tad: No. Uh-uh, uh-uh, I'm not selling this house.
Aidan: You're going to get the help you need, Annie.
Annie: I just don't want to see Dr. Sinclair again. I mean, I know I got to her this time, but she keeps grilling me about Richie, and I really don't know how much more of that I can take.
Dr. Sinclair: I can't have you continuing to interfere with my work. Look, I -- I offered to remove myself from the case.
Ryan: Yeah, well, you're angry because we hired a private investigator to look into your past.
Dr. Sinclair: Yes, yes.
Ryan: And you have every right to be angry, ok? That was our mistake, but, well, honestly, I'm getting married this week.
Dr. Sinclair: I know. I saw the announcement in the newspaper.
Ryan: And Annie escaped from here once and threatened Greenlee, and I just need to know that that cannot happen again. She can't be a threat on our wedding day or any day, for that matter.
Dr. Sinclair: Uh-huh. See for yourself.
Annie: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. He's here, Ryan's here.
Aidan: Take it easy.
Annie: See? I told you he didn't forget about me. Hey, Ryan! Ryan! Hey, Ryan, don't leave me!
Taylor: Hey, Martin.
Taylor: Come here. So, Brot tells me you're back where you belong, being paid to torture patients, nice.
Jake: Yes, yes, I just need more patients like you.
Taylor: Well, congratulations. You seem happy.
Taylor: And energized, back in your element -- you're both in your element. It's a funny thing about this hospital, you know? It heals you even when you're not sick.
Brot: Not even that, though. You know, at first, I was afraid that people would see me coming and run, but it's just the opposite. You know, they're curious and they ask all kind of questions, and the funny thing is, when I tell them about Iraq, they say "Thank you."
Jake: Well, they should say thank you. You sacrificed a lot for them. All right, well, I'm outie, so --
Angie: Hey, why aren't you changed?
Jake: Well, because it only takes me a minute to change, ok? I got to fix up my -- my hair. We're going to meet back here in one hour, ok? And then we will execute our plan.
Angie: Ok, all right, come on.
Jake: Go, go, go.
David: Did you just leave your patient sitting in there?
Frankie: No, I examined him. Then I had to wait for his test results.
David: I saw your little powwow with your mother and Jake earlier. So what is it? Plotting to get me fired? Well, you should know that whatever scheme you three stooges come up with, I won't let it happen.
Frankie: Hmm, paranoid.
Tad: I don't want to have to sell my home.
Jay: You purchased this house together.
Livia: That doesn't mean they have to sell it.
Jay: I'm just trying to expedite this process.
Krystal: I don't -- I don't -- I don't want the house. Tad can have it.
Jay: Mrs. Martin --
Krystal: No, listen, you're my attorney. You get paid to do what I say, right?
Tad: Thank you.
Jay: Moving on -- The Comeback property. Now, can we agree that Mrs. Martin should have that?
Tad: Yeah, absolutely, fine. Ok.
Livia: Where are you going?
Tad: I mean, he said the house and the bar, that's it. You know, I'm -- I'm done for the day.
Jay: We just started.
Krystal: Did you not hear him? He's done.
Livia: Better listen to your client.
Tad: Honey -- I mean, Krystal, no -- look, you don't -- you don't have to do that.
Krystal: I, uh -- forgot.
Tad: No, I know. It's just, you know, force of habit, right?
Krystal: I, uh -- I'm surprised Livia didn't mention that I broke our agreement by bringing Jenny over to Wildwind.
Tad: Well, she doesn't know you did. She also doesn't know that I was there. Does David?
Krystal: No. But I know you planted those drugs.
Tad: Why didn't you tell him?
Krystal: Angie is my friend, and he shouldn't have had her fired. He shouldn't have had her arrested. Sometimes he just goes too far.
Tad: "Sometimes" -- that's an understatement.
Krystal: All right, look, I just -- ahem -- I can't do this. I -- I can't talk to you about David.
Tad: Krystal -- forgive me. Force of habit. In any case, I got these out. I wanted you to have them. They're blueprints of the cafe that we were going to build over the -- over The Comeback site. You should have them. Whatever happens, it's a great idea. Good luck.
Krystal: Thank you.
Annie: Ryan, I'm scared! Please, don't leave me in here.
Aidan: Please, please, Annie, I'll help you. I'll help you. I'm here for you, all right? Just come back, talk to me.
Annie: Please --
Aidan: It's ok.
Annie: Please, I'm begging you. You have to get me out of this room. I have to go find Ryan.
Aidan: Look, just stop worrying about Ryan, ok? Obsessing about Ryan is what got you in trouble in the first place. It's what got you in here.
Annie: You don't understand.
Aidan: Look, Annie, I do, all right? I understand more than you know. The only way you'll ever be at peace is if you let Ryan go.
Dr. Sinclair: In recent sessions, we've been talking about the murder of Annie's brother.
Dr. Sinclair: Yes. You know, you and I haven't had a chance to talk about him at depth. If you wouldn't mind giving me your thoughts and opinions --
Ryan: Um -- ok. Well, honestly, the poor guy never had a chance with me, you know? Annie got me hating him before I even met him, really. You know, all the stories about how he tormented her, and I believed them, because I completely trusted my wife, but it turns out everything out of her mouth was a lie.
Dr. Sinclair: So, Richie really wasn't the monster that Annie made him out to be.
Ryan: Richie warned me, too. He said that Annie was the monster, was the sick one, was the crazy one, you know? But I blew him off, and, man, do I regret that because if I had just listened to him, then maybe I could have got to Annie and helped her before --
Dr. Sinclair: Before she killed her brother in cold blood.
Ryan: That's right.
Dr. Sinclair: Thank you. You've -- you've been a very big help.
Ryan: Hey, that's our wedding announcement. I haven't seen that yet -- oh!
Dr. Sinclair: God, you broke it! You idiot!
Jake: Divorce is rough, ok? Take it from me. I mean, you know, you can't just sit around in the house, staring at the walls. What's the alternative?
Tad: Got to get out there.
Jake: That's right, you got to live your life, and you can start that tonight by just go -- doing your part --
Tad: You could do something about the seat.
Jake: Just take it from me, ok? Got to get out there.
Tad: Jake --
Jake: Now, have you worked on your moves? Do you know what you're going to do?
Tad: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Trust me, it's not going to be pretty, but I know exactly what I'm going to do.
Jake: Was that so hard?
[Jesse and Natalia laugh]
Jesse: I can't believe you. Every year you give me the same thing, and every year it's my favorite gift.
Jesse: Thank you.
Natalia: Yes. You know the goal is to make the new one even tackier than the last one.
Natalia: Cha-ching. Mom and I actually have another gift for you.
Natalia: We are going to give you and Angie your apartment back.
Jesse: Your mother's moving out?
Natalia: No, no, actually, she's moving in with me. I'm looking for a place where we could both share. Look, you guys -- you guys have been so generous and so sweet letting Mom stay with you when she got really, really sick, ok? Now that she's responding to the chemo, I mean, I'm sure I could take care of her by myself. Oh, speaking of which -- I almost forgot. Mom asked me to give this to you.
Jesse: There's more.
Natalia: There's more.
Jesse: "There once was a man from PA who now celebrates his birthday." It rhymes.
Jesse: "We gave him a cheer and a wish for next year that his daughter will always obey."
Jesse: Yeah, that'll happen.
Natalia: So, that's Mom's gift. What did Angie get you?
Jesse: Hmm. Well --
Natalia: She forgot your birthday?
Jesse: No, no, come on, Angela has had a lot on her plate lately. She just got her job back, you know? I mean, it's easy, you know, to forget a date.
Natalia: Well, then we're just going to have to remind her.
Jesse: Oh, come on, come on, come on, put that down, all right? There's no need to make her feel bad. I mean, I don't feel bad. I'm here with you and my tacky mug.
Jesse: What else do I need, huh?
Natalia: All right. Well, I could think of one more thing. How about this?
Jesse: Oh, oh, oh. No, uh, yeah, we don't --
Jesse: We don't want to do that, ok? You, me, and your mother, when we lived together, we'd do this kind of thing at home in private.
Natalia: That's because you were hiding out.
Jesse: That's not the only reason, all right? Singing "Happy Birthday" in a public place is -- I hate it.
Natalia: All right.
Jesse: It's a nightmare.
Natalia: Ok, ok, fine, look -- how about this? Come here.
Jesse: That's better.
Natalia: Happy birthday.
Jesse: Thank you, baby.
Natalia: To the world's greatest dad.
Ryan: God, I'm such a klutz. I'm sorry. You know what? I'll -- I'll replace it.
Dr. Sinclair: No, it's ok. I -- I overreacted. It's -- it's just a mug. You know, it's -- it's just been a really long day.
Ryan: Are you from Chicago?
Dr. Sinclair: No, no, um -- a friend gave it to me. I need an orderly. You know, I hope you have a -- a wonderful wedding, and don't worry about Annie. I'll take care of her. Would you please escort Mr. Lavery out of the building? Um --
Brot: Hey, what's going on, man?
Man: Hey, ok, man.
Jesse: Listen, I want to thank you for the cup and the cupcake, and I want to hear all about the academy, but right now, I'm beat. I got to crash. You know police work can really take it out of a man. I have to go.
Natalia: No, no, no, wait, wait, just -- wait. I want to hear what's making you so busy.
Jesse: Another time, ok?
Natalia: It's the Hayward case, right? Tell me about it.
Jesse: What Hayward case?
Natalia: Well, I've gotten to know a few guys at the station. One of them said that he went with you to that -- Wildwind place. He said that you found illegal drugs, and didn't make the arrest. What's up with that?
Jesse: You know better than that. I can't discuss an ongoing investigation. Come on.
Natalia: Not even with your daughter?
Jesse: Not even with my daughter. Drop it.
Krystal: Look, I just -- I just met with Tad and the lawyers. I needed a little something for my nerves. It's just a one-time thing.
David: It's all right. Relax. I know you're not an addict. I could use a little something myself.
Krystal: Tough day at the hospital?
[David chuckles, pours drink]
David: Yeah, yeah, I guess you can say that. What are those?
Krystal: Plans for the cafe, ahem, where The Comeback was. Tad's letting me have the property.
David: The property where our daughter was fatally injured? How thoughtful of him.
Krystal: He was trying to be nice.
David: Oh, of course, right. A lasting memory of our daughter's demise. Can't get much nicer than that.
Krystal: Well, Babe and I had some good memories there, too, you know? And -- and I'm proud of -- forget it. I don't want to fight.
David: No, no, I'm sorry. You're right. Neither do I. So what do you want to do tonight, hmm? Lady's choice.
Krystal: You know I -- I don't really care where we go, as long as I get out of this house.
Krystal: I'm going to go change.
[David burns the plans in the fireplace]
Taylor: This is great.
Taylor: Just seeing you smile and telling your little jokes and just being out in the world again -- it's great.
Brot: Yeah, I would have to say, this is the happiest I've been since -- well, you know. It's weird, huh?
Taylor: No, no, it makes sense. I mean, the work that you're doing at the hospital, it's work that matters, you know? It has meaning and that's who you are.
Brot: You know what's weird about it, though, and this may sound corny, but the patients, when they look at me and hear my story, I -- I kind of feel like a -- like a stud again.
Taylor: You are a stud. You're beautiful, inside and out.
Natalia: So you found illegal drugs at Hayward's place, and then, boom, just like that, the charges against Angie are dropped, and she gets her job back? Did you make a deal with him?
Jesse: I ain't playing with you.
Natalia: Damn it, Dad. Wait, wait, wait, you can't go. You have to stay.
Jesse: You have been stalling me. Why?
Natalia: Oh, you didn't eat your cupcake.
Angie, Frankie, Randi, and Jake: For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow
Tad: Nobody can deny!
[Cheers and applause as Tad pops out of a giant cake]
Aidan: Everything's going to be ok.
Aidan: Listen, I have to pop out for a while.
Annie: No, no, don't leave me.
Aidan: I won't be long.
Annie: I don't want to be alone.
Aidan: Listen, Annie, you're not alone. Imagine I'm right there, and I'm giving you a big hug. Can you feel that?
Aidan: Remember what you said to me? That I'm the only one that you believe. Remember my promise to you?
Annie: Everything's going to be ok. Everything's going to be ok.
[Vent slides shut]
Annie: Are you still there?
Dr. Sinclair: Hello, Annie.
Annie: I don't want to talk about Richie.
Dr. Sinclair: Ok. Let's talk about Ryan. Brace yourself.
Ryan: I still can't leave.
Orderly: Dr. Sinclair said to escort you out of the building.
Ryan: Yeah, well, um -- you see, the thing is, it's very difficult for me to see my wife in this condition, and I need a little bit of time to pull myself together.
[Ryan hands the orderly some cash]
Orderly: You can have five minutes.
Aidan: Hey, what are you still doing here?
Ryan: Sinclair caught me on my way out.
Aidan: Don't tell me you've gone and blown this.
Ryan: No, I haven't, actually. It worked out -- it worked out really, really good, all right? By accident, I break her coffee mug -- her Chicago coffee mug. It hits the floor, she freaks out.
Aidan: Well, did you find anything about Chicago in Sinclair's resume or in her personal history?
Ryan: No, nothing at all, but during the two years that she supposedly vanished, Richie was in prison -- in Chicago.
Aidan: We're going to make a P.I. out of you yet.
Jesse: This is wrong on so many levels.
Tad: Chief, my name is Officer Kojak.
Tad: It's my job to inform you that you have the right to remain -- sexy.
[Everyone howls as Tad does a hilarious striptease and dance]
[Loud music plays]
Jake: Oh. Oh, no.
Natalia: Whoo! Oh, my God, this is too much.
Jesse: Get away from me, man.
David: It looks like Martin finally found his calling.
Tad: Happy birthday, Chief.
[Everyone cheers as Tad rips off his shirt and exposes his T-shirt with "Happy Birthday * Super Cop" on it]
Jesse: You are out of your mind.
Natalia: Happy birthday.
Tad: Oh, man.
David: Think we've seen enough?
Frankie: Your face when Tad popped out of that cake?
Jake: I got to get this cake back. Do you want to help me? This is a rental. I got to return the cake.
Tad: I'll be right back. See you in about a half-hour. Get the real cake.
Angie: Oh, my God. I cannot believe we pulled this off.
Jesse: I'll take care of you.
Angie: Thank you for keeping your father here.
Natalia: It wasn't easy.
Jesse: Yeah, I'm sorry. I gave her a hard time, a real hard way to go.
Natalia: It was so worth it.
Jesse: I'll never forget this one.
Natalia: Oh, it's Mom. She knew about the party. She's probably just calling to wish you a happy birthday. Answer it.
Jesse: What? You knew about this? Jesse Hubbard. Who is this? When? Yeah. Of course, I'll tell her. Thank you.
Natalia: Who was that?
Jesse: Hey, let's -- let's get out of here.
Natalia: No, no, tell me who that was. It's Mom's phone.
Jesse: That was a doctor from Denver. They had to take her to an emergency room.
Natalia: Is she ok?
Jesse: I'm so sorry, baby. She's gone. We lost her. I'm so sorry.
Natalia: Mom's not dead. She can't be.
Jesse: Come with me.
Natalia: No. Leave me alone.
Jesse: Natalia, please. I'll go.
Frankie: Wait, wait. What did the doctor say?
Angie: Was it her heart?
Jesse: Rebecca decided to stop all the treatments. She apparently went to Denver to die on her own terms -- alone.
Jake: I was going to get a bigger cake.
Tad: Honey? Where -- where'd Jesse go? What's up?
Angie: Um, Rebecca -- Natalia's mother -- she passed away.
Tad: What? Oh, God, honey, I'm so sorry.
Tad: I'll try to catch up with Jesse.
Angie: I don't understand. Rebecca was responding. She -- she was improving.
Frankie: No, Mom. Rebecca was dying.
Dr. Sinclair: They're getting married. Valentine's Day. Ryan and I had a nice, long talk. He told me how happy he is with Greenlee. He, uh -- he also had a few things to say about you.
[Turns tape recorder on]
Ryan's voice: Richie warned me. He -- he said that Annie was the liar, the sick one, the crazy one, but I -- you know, I blew him off. I -- I'm sorry about that now. Obviously he was right all along. And if I had just listened to him, maybe I could have done something. I could have stopped Annie before --
Dr. Sinclair's voice: Before she killed her brother in cold blood?
Ryan's voice: Yeah. That's right.
[Turns tape recorder off]
Annie: No. No, that -- that Ryan -- he's lying. Ryan knew that Richie was bad.
Dr. Sinclair: No. No, Annie. You're the one that's lying, because you can see it in your mind. You can hear it. The tire iron crushing Richie's skull. Your brother moaning as the life drains out of him. Why do you keep pretending, when we all know you did it? Ryan knows, I know --
Dr. Sinclair: And so do you. It would be so much easier if you just admit it. You murdered Richie.
Annie: Yes! Yes, I did, because he was evil! He tortured me. He threatened to tell Ryan all of my secrets -- that I lied to get pregnant. Ryan was my world. He was my husband. He was everything to me, and I was not going to lose him, so I grabbed that tire iron, and I hit Richie, and I hit him hard! I killed my brother, and I pretended that I didn't remember, but I did. I killed Richie, so I wouldn't lose Ryan.
Jake: Poor Natalia.
Tad: Yeah, it's hard. But you know what? She still has Jesse and Angie and Frankie to lean on. And that's important. It'll get her through this. How about you? Who do you got to lean on these days?
Jake: I'm good. I'm, you know, keeping busy. I got my job back, so --
Tad: So we're not going to talk about the feelings you no longer have for a certain lieutenant who should remain nameless?
Jake: No, no. I'm good with all that. She's off with what's-his-face. I'm fine.
Tad: Who do you think you're talking to? I've known you since the world was cooling, man. Come on, I saw the look on your face. And I don't blame you. Sometimes I see Krystal with David, I want to beat him to a pulp.
Jake: Well, that's the difference between you and me. See, I'm not a violent man. I don't have violent tendencies.
Tad: Nonetheless, the point is well taken. Your life is a disaster. Which means you and I can help out each other.
Jake: Do you hear this guy?
Tad: No, seriously. Come on, put down the doll. Listen -- options. You could, if you insist, rent that ridiculous tree house out there in the middle of the sticks.
Jake: It's not -- it's in the woods. It's not in the tree. It's called a cabin.
Tad: Well, it's a toilet, and it's got David's vibes all over the place. Or, you could move into the spacious living arrangement you see before you avec moi and be of service to your brother -- who needs you. I'm serious. I could use the help. God knows the girls love their Uncle Jake.
Jake: I --
Tad: Come on.
Jake: If I did it, it would have so many conditions, you know?
Tad: Like what?
Jake: Well, the first condition would be that you'd have to dance for us every night, your supercop dance in your footie pajamas, because we would need to be entertained.
Tad: See, there you go. Ok, torpedo the whole thing. I'm already having second thoughts, bro.
Jake: And the second condition, which is right after the first, because there's many, is don't ever call me "bro," because I don't like that.
Tad: How do you feel about "manzier"?
Jake: I, well, I don't like that either.
David: I'm sick of running into Martin. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll take his act on the road -- permanently.
Krystal: Where were my blueprints? They were right here.
David: Yeah, they were. Then I threw them in the fire.
Krystal: You have every right to hate that property, but it belongs to me. Babe and I started The Comeback, and I'm going to do something with that property in her memory.
David: And I think it's a wonderful idea.
Krystal: So you torched my plans.
David: Yeah, your plans. She was our daughter. So I thought we should do something together. You know, build something new that shows just how much she meant to both of us.
Krystal: So, you're on board with this?
David: Absolutely. Now, you were envisioning some kind of a cafe -- is that it?
Krystal: Well, actually, more like a -- a coffee place.
David: Well, that sounds great. You can sign me up as a part-time barista.
Krystal: Right. Yes. You are going to serve lattes. Sure. Sure.
David: Are you kidding me? I'd be making lattes in my sleep, darling.
Krystal: Oh, ho!
David: I'm serious. You ain't tasted any latte until you tasted my double-shot, double-foam, vanilla-skim, mocha, decaf frappe thingy that's there.
David: Oh, God, I love that laugh. And I would do anything to keep that smile on your face. Anything.
Frankie: She made me promise not to tell. I thought she was going to Denver to get her affairs in order. I -- had no idea it would happen so soon.
Randi: Frankie, you were right for respecting her wishes.
Angie: I should have known. I mean, the day Rebecca left, I sensed something in the way she said goodbye. The way she spoke to Natalia. I mean, she knew that it was the last time that she would ever see her daughter. Take wings and fly, Rebecca. And may the angels watch over your precious, precious child.
Natalia: Don't ask me why I came here.
Jesse: Well, my guess would be to feel closer to your mother. This was the last place she called home.
Natalia: This -- this came overnight from Denver. I keep trying to --
Jesse: Here, here. Want me to read it for you?
Jesse: "My dear Natalia, how can I express my love for you on a single page? My final wish for you is to find happiness. It's within your reach, baby. Grab it and hold on tight. You have so much to look forward to -- being with your new family, starting your career. You have so much of your father in you -- his strength and courage. You're together again, and I know -- I know you have everything you need to move on and have a wonderful future. That's why I'm saying goodbye this way. In time, you'll understand I did this to protect you. I wasn't going to get any better. Telling you only would have prolonged the suffering for us both. But I'm at peace now. I want you to believe that. I want you to mourn me, then embrace your new life. I'm so proud of you. I will love you through eternity. Forever, Mom."
Jesse: Natalia, wait, wait.
Natalia: I have to be alone. I have to be alone.
Dr. Sinclair: I know this wasn't easy, but you did very, very well. And now that you've confessed, all the pain will go away.
Annie: How could you, Ryan? How could you do this to me?
Ryan: Talk to me.
Aidan: I just broke into Sinclair's computer. I hacked in, and I found some hidden files.
Ryan: Great. Anything we can use?
Aidan: I'm looking at a letter to Sinclair from the warden at a correctional facility in Chicago, and it clearly urges her to resign her post as prison psychiatrist, given her indiscretion with an unnamed inmate.
Ryan: The inmate has to be Richie Novak -- we got her.
