[Annie sits in Oak Haven thinking]
Greenlee's voice: I, Greenlee, take you, Ryan, to be my lawfully wedded husband. To have and to hold from this day forward. For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, for as long as that bitch of an ex-wife is locked up in the looney bin.
Ryan's voice: And I, Ryan, take you, Greenlee, to have and to hold from this day forward as long as we both shall live. Shall live.
[Ryan's voice echoes]
Aidan: Annie, please, unblock the grate. Can you hear me, Annie?
Orderly: Breakfast time, Mr. Stone. And afterward, Dr. Sinclair would like to see you in her office.
Aidan: Really? I don't want any breakfast. I want to see Sinclair now.
Tad: You were right. Dr. Sinclair is the key to the entire thing.
Ryan: She had to have been Richie's shrink before the shrink that he bribed to get out of there. She had to be.
Tad: More than likely. But I'm telling you, all those records have been expunged. I have looked. I can't find so much as a trace as whoever Richie's interim psychiatrist was. Only that he or she was removed for disciplinary reasons.
Ryan: Well, so how do we prove that Sinclair and Richie were connected during that time?
Tad: The hard way. I've got one of Richie's prison guards flying in to be interviewed this morning.
Ryan: Well, that's the best shot we got at trying to help Annie.
Greenlee: Help Annie? Are you going to keep going at this until you get her out of there?
Bianca: Ok, I think we are almost packed. Are you still working on your vows?
Reese: Well --
Bianca: What -- are you crazy?
Bianca: Come on!
Reese: You can't -- no, you can't see these until the wedding.
Bianca: I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
Reese: Oh, yeah? Hmm. No. Get away, go.
Bianca: Well, I know mine by heart.
Reese: Yay for you.
Bianca: Yeah -- "my dearest Reese --"
Reese: What, are you crazy? Don't you dare. Are you kidding? No! What?
Bianca: "And kindness and selfishness --"
Reese: No, no, no -- I can't hear you! You crazy, crazy, crazy -- no.
Bianca: "To form a more perfect union --"
Reese: No, ah!
Bianca: "Ensure tranquility and provide for the common defense."
Reese: My common defense?
Reese: What? Um, I think that's the Constitution.
Reese: Yes. My real vows are very simple. I'll love you forever.
Erica: Three brides -- mind just reels of possible trouble there. Ok, and Gabrielle's dress is completely finished. Oh, she and Miranda are going to look absolutely beautiful. I love the whole notion.
David: Erica, if you don't mind, I'm trying to examine her. I really need some quiet.
Erica: Of course, you do. Sorry. Look, I have a hundred other things to do, so I'm just going to be on my way, and I will see you later.
David: Your heart rate jumped quite a bit there. Although I would be surprised if it hadn't. You're actually doing incredibly well.
Kendall: I need a favor.
David: Name it.
Kendall: It would help if I was medically unable to attend this wedding.
Erica: Oh, perfect. I've been wondering, you have a tux, don't you?
Zach: I'll find a little something, sure.
Erica: Ok, and I bet you have a brilliant toast, too.
Zach: I'm -- what? All right. How's our patient?
David: She's good. Although, I do think it's a little too early for her to be traveling. I'd advise against it -- going to the wedding.
David: Better safe than sorry, right?
Zach: Sure, yeah. No, thanks.
David: I'd like to see you again the day after tomorrow.
Kendall: Ok. Thank you.
Zach: That's good. You got him to say that, didn't you? You don't want to go to the wedding.
Kendall: No, I really don't.
Zach: What's the problem?
Kendall: I don't feel like it.
Zach: That's it?
Kendall: Well, I'm not into this whole wedding charade. Pretending to care, pretending to be this wonderful, forgiving person when everyone knows that I'm not. You go. Go have fun and enjoy yourself. Besides, you're the one who's close with them. You're the father of the newborn child.
Zach: I'm not the father of the child. I'm the --
Kendall: Sorry, sorry. You're the donor. The donor. I have to get my euphemisms right, don't I? So as the donor and the uncle and the godfather, you have to be there. Besides, no one will really notice that I'm missing. I've been missing for months already.
Zach: You're acting like a child right now.
Kendall: You're right. I am. Children speak their feelings. Children don't hide behind masks. And neither am I. So this is how I feel. Accept it. Besides, without me there, things will go smoother. Everyone will be happier.
Zach: Ok. You don't go, I don't go.
Natalia: Whew, I'm going to be late if I don't get going. My first ride-along is today.
Jesse: Hmm. Why don't I make a call? Get it postponed?
Natalia: What? Why? There's no reason to.
Jesse: Natalia, come on.
Natalia: Look -- my mom, she helped me through a lot. Letters she wrote -- it helped me understand why she needed to die the way she did. Ok, she wanted me to get back to my life as soon as possible, and that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm fine. Believe me.
Natalia: I'm fine.
Jesse: She is lying to herself if she thinks she's fine.
Angie: And she's not the only one. You were tossing and turning in your sleep all night. Baby, you know, you lost Rebecca, as well. We all did.
Jesse: I just wish I could have said goodbye.
Angie: Hey, you know, I think that you and your daughter are going to be able to lean on each other and get through your grief together.
[Knock on door]
Aidan: What's going on? Annie won't talk to me. What happened?
Dr. Sinclair: She admitted it. She confessed to the murder of her brother. I've already put a call in to the District Attorney to push for a quick competency hearing.
Aidan: How did you manage it?
Dr. Sinclair: Turned out to be quite easy actually. All I had to do was show her a newspaper photograph of Ryan and Greenlee in their wedding announcement, play her a few choice words that I recorded of Ryan, and she broke down. Admitted it, including the motives for the murder.
Aidan: Why did she say she did it?
Dr. Sinclair: Apparently, Richie threatened to tell Ryan how Annie tricked him into getting pregnant. She panicked and murdered her brother. Finally, justice will be served. I've proven that her mental illness is all just an act. She will spend the rest of her life doing hard time. What -- that is what we both want, isn't it?
Aidan: Of course, it is.
Ryan: This is more about Sinclair than it is about Annie.
Tad: I was just following up on a piece of, you know, information that Ryan got earlier.
Ryan: Annie's getting the help that she needs, ok? I just wanted to put it behind us so we can head on up to the wedding.
Greenlee: Good, but what was that information?
Ryan: I didn't tell her that Aidan has been camping out at Oak Haven this entire time.
Deborah: Ready for your final fitting?
Greenlee: Oh, are you kidding?
Ryan: I just got her calmed down after some horrible premonitions that your mom gave. What she needs to know is that Annie is doing well and that we're getting married, and we're moving on, that's it.
Dr. Sinclair: You've been a big help. But your part of the job is over. I don't think I could have done it without you. What?
Aidan: I -- I just want to make sure you can follow through. I mean, after all, this is your word against Annie's. Are you sure the D.A., the judge, and the jury are going to buy it?
Dr. Sinclair: I'm no fool. I've been an expert witness many times before -- would therefore have the benefit of the doubt in court. If Annie were to recant her confession or try to convince the jury that it never happened or that she really was crazy after all, I have this.
[Tape recorder plays]
Annie's voice: 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.
[Tape recorder stops]
Aidan: Good work.
Dr. Sinclair: Thank you. You know, you might want to leave me your contact number. You might want to come to the hearing. It should be quite a fulfilling experience.
Aidan: Yeah, I'd like that. You know, in fact, this has all happened so quickly. I'd like to have the chance to look Annie in the eye and say goodbye. You know, satisfaction.
Dr. Sinclair: I understand that feeling very well.
Reese: Hmm --
Reese: What's that?
Bianca: It's -- what?
Reese: That's it. You just gave me an idea for my vows.
Bianca: No, I just kissed you.
Reese: Yeah, exactly.
Reese: Ok, quiet, quiet, don't -- it's ok, I'm going to forget my thought here.
[Knock on door]
Bianca: Yeah, coming, coming. Gosh, it's too early for the limo driver.
Erica: Good morning.
Bianca: Hi! Good morning.
Erica: Good morning, good morning.
Reese: Good morning.
Erica: Well, we have a busy day ahead of us.
Erica: Where's your luggage? I can't believe it. You didn't pack yet? Honey, we have got to get to the inn. We have a million things to do once we get there.
Bianca: Mom, we have time.
Erica: Well, you look very happy.
Bianca: I am.
Erica: Ok, that's all I want for you.
David: We'll go over his options later.
David: Hey. Oh, thanks. Beats the coffee in the lounge any day.
Krystal: Are you ok?
David: No, no, I'm not all right. I'm chief of staff in this hospital. I shouldn't have to be playing substitute doctor in the E.R., but Angie Hubbard didn't have the courtesy to call in.
Krystal: Oh, yeah. Well, there was a death in the family. The mother of Jesse's daughter.
David: Yeah, I heard, but she deserves -- she owes us a phone call at the very least.
Angie: Oh, sorry I'm late. Who should I thank for taking over for me?
David: You're looking at him.
Angie: Oh, well, thank you.
David: Dr. Hubbard --
Angie: Let go of me.
David: The only reason why you're still working here in this hospital is because your husband set me up. Now, if you want to push my buttons, fine. We'll see how that plays out, but there are other doctors and other patients in this hospital that are depending on your professionalism. So if your performance lags because you're taking advantage of what your husband did to me --
Angie: You have no right to question my professionalism. I may have personal issues with you and the way that you've treated Krystal, but I have never let it get in the way of me doing my job, and everyone here will attest to that. So take your indignation and shove it.
David: Now you see, that's the attitude I'm talking about.
P.A. Announcer: Dr. Hayward, please report to the O.R. Dr. Hayward, to the O.R., please.
David: No games, Angie. I'm giving you fair warning.
Krystal: I am so sorry for the way he acted.
Angie: Don't you ever apologize for him. You understand? He is a sorry excuse for a human being, and he's going to hurt you, Krystal. He's going to hurt you bad.
Greenlee: Dress-fitting for the bride, boys, which means you have to clear out. Superstitions about seeing the dress, you know?
Ryan: Oh, ok.
Greenlee: And all that.
Tad: We're not getting hitched. I can see you naked.
Greenlee: Mr. Martin --
Tad: See you at the rehearsal, then.
Tad: You know, I just thought of something. What happens if we do get lucky and we blow Sinclair out of the water -- what then?
Ryan: We get Annie the help that she needs.
Tad: Right, exactly. So what are you going to do when she gets the help she needs, and she gets released someday?
Ryan: We deal with that. If that happens, we'll deal with it.
Annie: What do you want?
Aidan: I understand you confessed to murder. Well done. You just won yourself a trip to the state pen.
Annie: She forced me to say it. Please, you have to help me.
Aidan: Annie, there's nothing I can do for you now.
Annie: What? But I don't understand. You told me --
Aidan: Everything I told you was a lie. It was an act to get you to confess, and it worked.
Annie: Did you know about this? Did you? It's only been a couple of months, and they're getting married? While I've been rotting in here, my husband is marrying your wife! You can't prove that I did anything.
Dr. Sinclair: Oh, yes, I can. It's all here, how you murdered Richie to shut him up.
Annie: You are crazy! You're the crazy one.
Aidan: Annie, Annie, Annie, hang on with me. It will be all right.
Annie: Stop it, stop it. No more whispers. No more whispers, no more secrets. Get out. Get out!
Kendall: You're being ridiculous. You have to go to this wedding. Bianca was there for you all the months that I was gone. She stood by your side. So did Greenlee. So did Reese, for that matter. They were all there for you when you needed them, and now, right now, you have to be there for them. I won't go. I can't go, but you have to.
Zach: People are going to this wedding because they want to see -- they want to see people that they care about get married -- not to watch you squirm over some problem you have with your niece. So if you feel it's better that you stay --
Kendall: You know what I need to do? I need to take my medication and go to bed. I'm very tired, ok? And I'm really tired of talking about this. That is my final word on this subject. I'm done.
Krystal: Angie, wait.
Krystal: I miss you. I miss my friend.
Angie: I miss you, too. I just wish you'd open your eyes about that man.
Krystal: You know, I know you feel that way, but I just wish it didn't have to come between our friendship.
Angie: You know what the truth is? I could use someone to talk to myself.
Krystal: I heard that Rebecca died.
Krystal: How's Jesse?
Angie: Well, you know Jesse. You know, wanting to make everyone think that he's not torn up. But all you have to do is look in his eyes and just see how much he's really, really hurting.
Natalia: You had me sent home. I told you I wanted to be in the field today. Why did you do that?
Jesse: I'm sorry. I didn't want you out in the field in this frame of mind.
Natalia: Frame of mind? Dad, I told you that I'm fine.
Jesse: Are you? I mean, have you already gotten over mourning your mother? Can you move on that easily?
Natalia: Can't you?
Jesse: No. I was up all last night thinking about your mother, remembering how unselfish she was all the way to the end. How she chose to spare us the pain of watching her die. She's an amazing mother. I see so much of her in your eyes.
Natalia: I could never be that strong.
Jesse: Yes, you already are. You just don't know it yet.
Natalia: I promised I wouldn't break down for her.
Jesse: She wouldn't want that. Ok? She would want you to let it out.
Jesse: Look at you. You really did inherit my stubborn streak. Come on. Baby, it is so much healthier to just let it go, let it out. Trust me. Your mother cried tons of tears over you throughout the years. Trust me.
Natalia: I miss her.
Jesse: I know.
Natalia: I miss her.
Jesse: Ok, it's ok.
[Knock on door]
Erica: Ah, someone to carry the luggage. You're just in time.
Reese: Ah, hey.
Bianca: All right, so these two need to go in first because they're the heaviest.
Reese: What's the matter? What's wrong?
Zach: Well, Kendall has decided not to go to the wedding. Said she would feel uncomfortable, so she insists that I go alone.
Erica: But how can we do this without her?
Reese: Oh, my God.
Erica: What happened?
Zach: Can I ask -- did you guys not think it was going to be a problem when she wakes up and finds out about Gabrielle? You thought there was going to be no problem at all?
Bianca: Ok, no, but to miss our wedding?
Reese: Ok, you know what? Um, maybe we should just do what she wants. Maybe we should go ahead, we should have a ceremony, and --
Bianca: No, no, no way. She's my sister, and I love her as much as anybody in this room. I want her by my side for this. I can't get married without her.
Reese: Babe, babe, Bianca --
Greenlee: I've got a million things to do. Pack up my stuff, get the bike gassed up.
Greenlee: Yeah, I'm taking my motorcycle up there. We're going to ride off into the sunset after the wedding. Maybe we'll head west this time. I don't know. Disappear for a while.
Deborah: There -- perfect. I think you can see your reflection in the door.
Greenlee: Oh, this is perfect.
Greenlee: If it's Ryan, you can't come in. Otherwise, the door is open. Oh, my God.
[Door opens and closes]
Aidan: It's not Ryan.
Greenlee: I, uh -- um -- what are you doing here?
Aidan: I need to speak to Ryan.
Greenlee: He's out with Tad.
Aidan: Did he say what it was about? Is there anything new on the Chicago connection with Richie?
Greenlee: Richie? Richie Novak? We're done here, right? What's going on? What's the Chicago connection to Richie?
Aidan: Ryan hasn't told you?
Greenlee: Told me what?
Aidan: About me and Annie at Oak Haven, where I've been the last couple of months.
Jesse: When I found out your mother was ill, I just -- I don't know. I prepared for it. I just sort of let the sadness wash over me and out of me, which is something you are going to have to do. Your mother's always going to be with you. I know you know that in your heart.
Natalia: Yeah, that letter she wrote -- she told me that she wanted me to get back to my life, and so I'm going to try to make it through the police academy, get my shield.
Jesse: You already got your shield. It's your mother's bravery. Baby, that's going to be with you always.
Natalia: I like that.
Krystal: There was a time when you wanted Rebecca gone.
Angie: You know, and now, I find myself missing her so very, very much. And not just for Jesse and Natalia, but, I don't know, it's like after I got over the anger and the fear and the secrets, I wish I'd been given the opportunity to know her better. But she did leave me a very beautiful gift. I have a new daughter in my life.
Krystal: I'll tell you what. I -- I wish I could have handled my screwed-up life as well as you handled Rebecca coming into yours. But when Babe died, I just -- I unraveled. Now I've lost Tad, and I can't commit to David, and I miss all of you. I really miss all the good times that we had.
Angie: I'm still here. Even though I may not agree with your taste in men, and I am still your friend, and I still love you.
[Angie and Krystal hug]
Angie: Listen, I got to run.
David: Hey. Do you have a minute? There's something I've been meaning to do, and I just don't want to wait any longer.
Greenlee: It all makes perfect sense. You and Annie were the ones who got hurt. So you've been up at Oak Haven taking care of her, right? Keeping the evil doctor from messing with her head. Poor crazy Annie, the one who killed Richie, stabbed Erica, and stole Emma.
Aidan: Annie's actually getting better.
Greenlee: Oh, great! Why the hell didn't he tell me about this? I knew -- I knew that he and Tad were talking about something else. I thought it was a surprise for the wedding, but no, no, Greenlee can't know. Poor, pathetic, stupid bride-to-be Greenlee.
[Door opens and Ryan walks in]
Erica: Well, if anyone can change Kendall's mind, it's Bianca. So I'm going to hold that thought and go down and get a bellman to take down these bags.
Reese: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Zach: Sorry for what? What are you apologizing for?
Reese: That you have to go through this.
Zach: It's nothing to do with you. This is me. I did that. I didn't tell her about being a donor. I wasn't there at the beach house. It's me. And you know what? Kendall has a right to feel the way she does. I was wrong.
Reese: Yeah, and I was wrong, too. I was wrong to talk you into it.
Zach: You didn't talk me into anything. I did this. I'm the bad guy here.
Reese: Oh, ok, so, are you saying that you regret being Gabrielle's donor? You know, no, please, actually, don't answer that, because if you say that you regret that, I know that you would be lying.
Greenlee: Close your eyes. Damn it! You saw me in my dress. Don't go anywhere. We have things to discuss.
Ryan: What are you doing here?
Aidan: I seem to have annoyed your bride. I didn't realize you hadn't filled her in on what was going on.
Ryan: Don't worry about Greenlee. I will handle Greenlee. What are you doing outside of Oak Haven?
Aidan: Sinclair booted me out after Annie confessed to Richie's murder. Yeah, no self-defense -- did it to stop his blackmail. Now Sinclair's called the D.A. There'll be a hearing soon, and Annie will be off in prison for the rest of her life.
Ryan: Ok, just slow down, all right? Maybe not, maybe not, because Tad and I just met with the security guard from Richie's prison, and you were right. Sinclair and Richie were romantically involved. In fact, she lost her job because of it. She tried to cover her tracks, but we finally tripped her up, and we can prove it.
Aidan: Well, I certainly hope so, Ryan.
Ryan: There's nothing more that she can do. This is going to blow her out of the water, all right? Prove that she was coercing Annie, that she had a personal vendetta against the woman that killed Richie, her lover.
Dr. Sinclair: You lied to put him in prison, and then when he got out, you pulled him in to your sick little world. And for what? Just to kill him in cold blood over your twisted obsession for Ryan? It was a waste of a wonderful man.
Annie: No. My brother was the twisted one.
Dr. Sinclair: Shut up! He knew about love and compassion, something that you know nothing about. That's why your precious Ryan couldn't love you, because you're incapable of it.
Annie: Get out. I mean it, get out! You got what you wanted! You got your big confession. So get out of my room!
Dr. Sinclair: I hope Richie haunts you every day of what's left of your miserable life.
Bianca: You can't do this. If you weren't well enough, maybe I would understand, but you are, and so you are coming to my wedding. You will be there for me and for your nieces and for Zach, and I don't care what anybody thinks. I don't even care what Zach thinks. This is between you and me, and I can't do this without you.
Kendall: I can't. I cannot go and watch Zach walk down the aisle holding your daughter, the little girl that I wouldn't give him. I know, I know it sounds irrational, but when have you ever known me to be rational? I'm through thinking. Right now, I'm just feeling, and what I'm feeling is not very pretty. You all lied to me. You betrayed me. You hurt me more than anyone could have possibly hurt me, and I've been through way too much, so it's enough. Enough. I won't go. I can't go.
Bianca: I can't do this without you by my side. Please. Is there anything that I can do to convince you to change your mind?
Kendall: There is one thing you can do. This one thing will make me come to your wedding.
Angie: Mmm, supper smells good.
Natalia: It is.
Angie: Uh-huh, it looks sinful. Even you be.
Jesse: Hey, babe.
Natalia: No, but it's not sinful. This, right here, is actually super-healthy for you. Mom used to make it for my dad when he had to start eating better.
Natalia: And I remember every winter, every time it snowed, there would be some biscuits and some hot Campbell's Soup waiting for me when I got home. Anyway, I thought I'd try making a batch, you know, keep the tradition going.
Jesse: My baby.
David: All right, first, I want to start off by saying I'm sorry.
Krystal: For what?
David: For the way I've treated your friends, like Angie.
David: I know it's not right, ok? I may not care for them, but, if by hurting them, I end up hurting you, I'm really sorry. I guess I have to find new ways to deal with my anger. You're the one who taught me the importance of that.
Krystal: I did?
David: Yeah. Now, I wanted to give you something the other night at ConFusion, but with Tad and everything, it just wasn't the right time. So I've been carrying it in my pocket ever since. Now look, this isn't an engagement ring, ok? I know that you're not ready to deal with that right now. But I would love for you to have this in the meantime.
Krystal: It -- it's -- it's beautiful.
David: So will you wear it?
Krystal: Yes, of course, I will.
Kendall: I will go to your wedding and stand by your side, smile at everyone, be charming, on one condition -- that when it's all over, you and Reese and your baby go back to France and leave me in peace.
Bianca: No, you don't mean that.
Kendall: Yes, I do. I need time.
Bianca: Ok. We'll go.
Zach: I'm -- of course, I don't mean that, and I have a connection to Gabrielle from the day she was born. I look into her eyes and -- it's not the point. The point is it's -- it's time for you to get married, and you and Bianca go back to Paris and live your life. It's -- that's all there is to it. It's the only way I can keep Kendall.
Reese: I can't -- I can't leave. I can't -- I can't leave right now. I can't take Bianca away from her family. I -- and you and Gabrielle have bonded. You just said that. I -- this isn't fair. This isn't fair to anyone.
Zach: It's not about being fair. There's no choice. You got to go. You got to convince Bianca.
Aidan: I'm sorry for the intrusion. That's good news on Tad, though. I'll handle the rest. Good luck to you both. I mean it.
Ryan: I didn't tell you because of the wedding. Greenlee, I -- I just got you back down to earth after all of Opal's craziness, and I just wanted -- just wanted you to focus on the wedding, you know, on us, on us being happy. That's all. I got you some beautiful flowers. Beautiful flowers for my beautiful bride-to-be. See, yellow roses?
Greenlee: They are beautiful. But that doesn't make it ok.
Ryan: This had nothing to do with Annie or Sinclair or Aidan. This is all about putting -- putting that behind us, so that we can just focus on us, you know? We can move on.
Greenlee: You're right. None of that matters. But keeping secrets, that does matter. It's no way to start a marriage.
Ryan: You're right. Sorry. No more secrets, ok? You know absolutely everything. I promise. I promise.
Orderly: It's already unlocked.
