Jake: I'm not saying that. I'm very happy to have my job back and be at the hospital. It's Hayward. He's -- he's a control freak.
Tad: He likes to control everybody and everything. Look what the wind just blew in.
Jake: Hmm. Probably here to see the devil himself, Mr. Hayward. What is it? Why can't the Martin family shake this guy?
David: How could you propose such a ridiculous idea?
Joe: The Heart Health Benefit will still go forward. I'm simply suggesting we scale it back.
David: I am dedicating a wing of this hospital in my daughter's name. I'm not cheaping out on Babe.
Joe: Nothing personal, David -- hospital policy. Every department has been asked to save money.
David: Right. Right. Well, I am chief of staff, okay? Which means that I make the final recommendation to the board. This is my event, and we will do it my way. I'm going to give this town the jolt it needs.
Kendall's voice: Hi, it's Kendall. Leave a message.
Zach: Hey, it's me, again. I'm -- I just want to make sure you're ok. I want to know where you are, so give me a call back, all right?
Bianca: Your wife left you. Maybe there is some justice in this world.
Kendall: Thanks for letting me crash. I -- I didn't think you should be alone. Emma's going to go to school soon, right? Well, anyway, I got you some breakfast. Sorry it's not fancier. Coffee -- I forgot the coffee.
Ryan: Don't pretend like you don't know, Kendall. Today is Greenlee's birthday.
Erica: Thank you so much for getting Miranda off to school.
Jocelyn: No problem.
Erica: You are not coming anywhere near this baby.
Reese: Well, a judge says different. Give me my daughter.
Jake: Hi. you look lovely. Lovely. Would you like to join us?
Krystal: You really think Tad wants my company?
Jake: Oh, abso -- yeah, it was his idea. He just said it. Come on.
[Krystal clears her throat]
Jake: Did you get your coat?
Krystal: Oh, don't get it.
Tad: By all means. You're engaged?
Joe: It was just a dizzy spell. I'm fine. I'm fine.
David: You talk, I can't hear. Your heart sounds strong. But I want to run an EKG just to be sure.
Joe: Oh, that's not going to be necessary.
David: That's not a request, Doctor.
Joe: Look, David, you may have blackmailed your way into my office, but you don't give me orders.
David: Allowing you to treat patients before you've been thoroughly examined would leave this hospital open for yet another lawsuit. You'll take the test, Joe. And if it's good, then you go home and you rest for a few days. Think of it as a mini-vacation.
David: Nurse, would you please take Dr. Martin to Exam 1. Prep him for an EKG.
Joe: By the way, how does a busy man like you find the time to plan a benefit? Who's going to pull it together?
David: An event this important requires a woman's touch.
Krystal: It's um -- it's not an engagement ring. It's a promise ring.
Tad: Yeah, three carats' worth. What did he promise you? Eternal damnation?
Jake: Tad, take it easy.
Tad: No, no, no, no --
Krystal: I don't have to take this, Tad.
Jake: It's a lovely ring. Would you just tell her it's a lovely ring?
Tad: No, you started it, ok? Just let me get -- no, would you stop it, for the love of --
Tad: Let me ask you a question. Have you ever stopped for five minutes to wonder why David is in such a hurry to get you down the aisle? No. Let me ruminate that one. Let's see -- there's the world-famous cardiologist, there's the ideal homemaker, and then there's Wildwind, a place that's so big that men hunt, women ride, and now even the dead have their own room. It's just so cozy. I'm afraid, you know, that you two are inviting the rest of the town over to watch the Oscars on Sunday night. Wow. Perfect husband, perfect wife, perfect house. All he's doing is trying to create the perfect environment in which to transplant Little Adam.
Krystal: Did it ever occur to you that David and I might be in love?
Jake: I can use a Bloody Mary.
Krystal: I just think it sticks in your craw.
Jake: Or six --
Krystal: The fact that the two of us just might be meant for each other.
Tad: So, I guess that makes Adam and me, what, a couple of placeholders, something for you to do while you were waiting for your true love to come back to town?
Krystal: I didn't say that, Tad. What we had -- our marriage, our family -- was real.
Tad: Not anymore. And I don't want you to make a mistake. I'm going to head this off at the pass. Don't think that marrying Dr. Doom changes anything about our custody agreement, ok? I don't care if the man's out there turning Wildwind into the Magic Kingdom. Jenny's never going anywhere near that place.
Krystal: You know what -- leave me alone, please.
Jake: No, no, just wait, just not until I tell you why you can't marry David Hayward, ok?
Jake: Krystal, his life has become about revenge. He's got it really bad for the Martins and the Chandlers, and I think the Hubbards are on his list, as well.
Krystal: You know, I'm sorry that he fired you, Jake.
Jake: No --
Krystal: You got your job back.
Jake: It has nothing to do with my job. I promise you, this is just about protecting you. He used your grief, and he got you on drugs.
Krystal: Now, see, I leaned on him because I needed to.
Jake: Fine, maybe -- yeah, ok, in the beginning. But what about him leaning on you? He's doing that, and he's using you. What happens when he's done, when he no longer needs you for anything? What happens then? I promise you, if you marry this guy, you're going to have nothing left --
Jake: Nothing. Sorry. Oh -- yeah? Sure. Sure, ok. It's my dad at the hospital. Something about David. Listen, it doesn't matter what happened with you and Tad. We're family, ok? Family.
Jake: All right, I got to go. Dad's at the hospital. Something about David.
Jake: Do me a favor. Can you handle this?
Tad: Yeah, yeah, I'll be fine.
Jake: Good going.
Tad: All right.
Tad: Nah, nah, nah -- don't waste your time, ok? I'm leaving --
Krystal: No, listen, I just got an earful from the Martin boys, so now you're going to have to hear from me.
Ryan: I was going to celebrate her birthday on our honeymoon. She said no gifts. She said that she just wanted us to be together.
Kendall: I miss her, too. I need her to help me with Zach. I -- I should call him, but I -- I don't know what -- I don't know what to say. Greenlee would know. She'd throw it right in my face.
Ryan: I just wanted to get out of there. I just wanted to get married someplace else, you know? But she wouldn't leave. She wouldn't leave until she set things right with her best friend. That's why she was on the road. She was on the road to confront Zach about Reese -- about cheating with Reese -- to protect you. She loved you so much.
Ryan: Happy birthday, Greenlee. I am sorry that I couldn't give you what you wanted. I am so sorry.
Erica: I don't give a damn what some stupid judge says. You stay away from the baby.
Reese: I -- I made a mistake.
Erica: A "mistake." Wow, is that word overused these days. You crushed my daughter.
Reese: I love your daughter.
Erica: If that's true, then prove it. Leave and don't fight her for her child.
Reese: She's my child, too. I have been there the same as Bianca.
Erica: The same as Bianca? That's not true at all. Bianca carried that baby, Bianca delivered that baby while you were off throwing yourself at Zach.
Reese: Ok, Erica, I know that what I did was wrong. I know that, but if the situation was reversed, I don't care what Bianca may have done, I don't care how hurt I may have been, I would never, ever take my children. Look, I know what it feels like to have a parent disappear. I know all the pain, I know all the questions you're left with. And I don't ever want Gabrielle to feel that way. I'm never going to let her feel like I deserted her.
Bianca: Kendall, she's smart not to take you back. Forgive and forget -- that's what I did with Reese time and time and time again. I accepted her apologies, I excused her lies. In my heart I knew that something wasn't right, but I just refused to believe it was true. I couldn't accept that I could be so wrong about the people I loved. So, I came up with all kinds of explanations and rationalizations and in the end it didn't matter at all. Everything fell apart anyway, in my life and in yours.
Zach: People that love each other, they work things out. Kendall and I always have.
Bianca: You kissed Reese. You probably had sex with her. You really think Kendall's just going to be able to get over that?
Zach: No, I didn't have sex with her, but I guess it doesn't matter what I say.
Bianca: You betrayed me. The trust is gone. It's over.
Zach: It's your decision to make.
Bianca: Do you think it's a mistake? Well, it can't be any worse than the other decisions I've made this year. I chose you to be the father of my child -- that was the worst mistake of my life.
David: Your father's going to be fine, Jake, if he gets his rest. You might want to convince him to stay in bed for a few days.
Jake: He's going to miss the Heart Health Benefit, the Campbell's thing --
David: Right, right. Come on, I'm running an event to promote cardiac health. The last thing I need is your father dropping dead at the event. So, he'll swallow his pride, and he'll stay home. And we'll raise a boatload of cash for a very worthy cause. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have places to be.
Erica: You can hold the baby. But just for a minute.
Reese: Hey, you. Hi. Hi, my precious. Oh. Did you just have your bottle? Hmm? Thank you. Hi. Look at you. Look at you. Mommy's here. Yeah, Mommy's here.
Erica: All right --
Reese: She's --
Erica: Time's up.
Reese: Oh, come on, please.
Erica: Ah, if Bianca ever knew. Look, I'm so sorry. Jocelyn, would you please take Gabrielle back up to the suite?
Erica: Yeah, there she is. Here's her sock, here's her blanket. Thank you. Ok. All right, you should go -- now.
Reese: Uh-huh. I know you're just acting cold. Because I can see how you really feel. You know that what Bianca is doing is wrong.
Erica: Look, this is a very devastating situation, and I don't know how to solve it. But what I do know, what I am certain of, is that it is your fault. So if you are in any kind of a personal hell, you put yourself there.
Bianca: I wish I could take it all back -- the night in Marseille, the secrets that we kept from Kendall, the whole ridiculous, insane plan.
Zach: You have regrets. You regret that Gabrielle is here?
Bianca: I love that little girl. All I care about is my children. It's my job to make sure that they are happy and safe, and that's why I'm going to go back to France without Reese. She's not going to be allowed to see them, and neither are you. It's the way it should be. It's the way it would have been if we had gone to a sperm bank instead of being so incredibly selfish and stupid. And I know you can't fight me about it, because you know what that would do to Kendall. She would see how much you care about Gabrielle and how you can't let her go, and she would never forgive either one of us, and I know you can't live with that. Would you say something?
Zach: I always saw the best parts of Erica in you. Always the best -- never insecurities, arrogance, and the selfishness -- until now. You've turned into your mother. It makes me very sad. Oh, you know, that's not right, it doesn't make me sad. It makes me sick.
Bianca: Go to hell.
Kendall: Greenlee could do anything. I owe her so much. She's the one who made me realize I was in love with Zach.
Kendall: Oh, come on, Ryan, don't do this -- don't. You need your friends right now, and Zach is one of them. At least he used to be.
Ryan: Ok, let me make something very, very clear. Spike is my son, and you are my friend. And those are the only two reasons Zach and I have anything to do with each other at all.
Kendall: Wait a minute, Ryan. When Annie had her miscarriage, Zach stood by you. He was there for you because he understood, because he lost a child of his own.
Ryan: No, he knew that you were gunning for Annie. That's why he was there at the hospital, to stop you from going after Annie. I don't understand -- he cheated on you, Kendall. How can you defend him?
Ryan: Come in.
Kendall: Jesse, hi.
Jesse: Hey, Kendall.
Kendall: What are you doing here?
Jesse: Ryan asked me to stop by, said he would explain it in person. If this is about Annie --
Ryan: This is not about Annie. This is about Zach. I would like you to charge him with murder.
Krystal: Listen, I know that David can be -- dark. Tad, he's not the monster that everybody thinks he is. I know he's complicated. I know that you have to -- you have to work at it. If you want to get inside his heart and his head, you have to work on it. He's not -- he's not you.
Tad: I'm glad to hear it. Ok, I apologize for coming on too strong, ok, but it's not like I don't come by it honestly. Maybe I want to protect you, too -- for good reason. It's not because you're Jenny's mother. It's because you were my wife, a woman I was more than happy to spend the rest of my life with until he walked back into the picture.
David: Sorry I'm late. Something came up at the hospital. I'm surprised you're not there.
Tad: Why would I be?
David: Jake didn't call you?
David: You father's heart is acting up again.
Krystal: Is he -- is he all right?
David: Yeah, he will be. Excuse me -- could you get rid of this, please, and bring me a martini?
Waiter: You got it.
Krystal: It's a little early for one of those, don't you think?
David: Well, it's been a long day already. And we have something very important to discuss.
Bianca: You went to a judge, and you got a court order to keep me in the country?
Reese: If you want to put an ocean between me and my daughter and keep me away from her for God knows how long --
Bianca: Because you cheated on me. You ruined everything that we ever had.
Reese: This is the only way that I knew how to get you to stay. Unless you want to give me another chance. We can fix this. The moment I met you I knew that we belonged together -- you, me, our kids. It hasn't changed. We can fix this, if you believe in us. I still love you.
Bianca: I don't love you anymore.
Kendall: My husband didn't murder anyone.
Jesse: Zach couldn't see Greenlee coming around that curve, Ryan. You told the sheriff the same story, right?
Kendall: Yes, yes. It was dark, and the road was winding, and Zach had drifted into the wrong lane.
Jesse: He stayed at the scene. He helped with the search, he cooperated with the police.
Ryan: Great, great, big hero. Greenlee is still dead, ok? Zach is responsible, and I want to press charges.
Kendall: Why? Ryan, that would only make everything worse.
Ryan: Kendall, if Zach hadn't have been messing around with another woman, Greenlee would still be alive. Do you understand that?
Kendall: Stop it, stop, stop.
Ryan: He is the reason that she was on the road. He's the reason the car was on the wrong side, because you were arguing about Reese.
Jesse: Ryan --
Ryan: Zach and Reese are behind everything here, guys. Why don't you see that?
Jesse: Ryan, cheating on your husband or your wife, unfortunately that is not a crime.
Ryan: Get out.
Jesse: Ryan, if you're thinking about taking the law into your own hands --
Ryan: Get out.
Ryan: Now, Jesse. Get out, right now.
Kendall: Ryan --
Ryan: Kendall, I love you. You know that. We both love Greenlee. But if you are with Zach on this, I need you to leave, too. Now.
Jesse: You seem a little nervous, Kendall. Is there anything else you want to tell me -- what happened in that car?
Tad: You ok?
Tad: What the hell was wrong with you?
Tad: You can't dial your cell phone?
Jake: This is nothing serious. No, no, no -- David just doesn't want him involved with the Heart Health Benefit thing. He wants to take all of the glory himself, and that's what this is about.
Joe: Yeah, I'm told to go home and get a few days' bed rest.
Tad: I think -- no. Wait a minute. You can't go along with this, Pop. First he takes your job. Now he sends you home like -- like you're hired help? That's ridiculous.
Joe: I tried to find a way to coexist with the man, but he's determined to battle me at every turn, and I just do not have the energy for that right now. But I'll tell you something. You two do. I want you both to keep up the fight, because it's not just for me, it's for everybody he's gone after and he's hurt, especially for those who are no longer with us. I think the guy is trying to wipe us out. It's going to be up to you two to stop him.
Krystal: So, what do you want to talk about?
David: The Heart Health Benefit at the hospital that we're hosting for Babe's wing. I would like you to be in charge of planning it.
David: Yeah. Listen, if we put it in the hands of Joe Martin and his merry band of tightwads, this event will take place in the supply closet.
David: So they're out, and you're in.
Krystal: I -- I don't -- I don't know. There's not a lot of time.
David: Ok, listen to this. This event, the entire idea of it is to honor our daughter, ok? She can't be there. Now I believe that if you put in your energy, your creativity, your love -- her spirit will be. Just think of Babe. That's all the inspiration you need.
Kendall: I was upset, and Zach was driving me back to the inn. And you know the rest.
Jesse: That's it. You're sure?
Kendall: Jesse, my best friend is dead.
Kendall: Zach feels horrible, and so do I. But our pain is nothing compared to Ryan's. He's the one you should be worried about.
Jesse: What do you think he might do?
Kendall: I don't know. I have no idea. But I've never, ever seen Ryan like this. The grief is just taking over. It's -- it -- it's turning him into a different person, and that scares the hell out of me.
Bianca: You know, the truth is I don't know if I ever loved you. Because you weren't real. You were what I made you. My -- my dream woman, the -- the -- the love of my life, a second mother to Miranda, a woman who wanted me, who wanted to marry me, who -- who wanted to build me a house and spend the rest of our lives together. It -- it was -- it was an image that I created, and anything that didn't fit into that image, I just shut it away. I wanted to see perfection, and I wasn't going to let anything ruin that.
Reese: I am not a figment of your imagination. We found each other. We fell in love. And everything that you felt, I felt it, too. And I still do.
Bianca: You humiliated me. You betrayed me. You married me, even though you couldn't stop thinking about Zach. I don't know you at all. I don't know anything about you, but the one thing I know is that I -- I can't let you in my life anymore. I can't let you hurt me or the people that I love.
Reese: Ok, then this is not over.
Bianca: You want to go to court? Great. I can't wait. I can't wait to get up there and rip you up on the stand. I can't wait to tell the judge how you strung me along, how you ruined my life and the lives of two completely innocent girls. And I never thought that I could agree with your mother about anything, but she was right about something. You're a disgrace to your family, and I hope I never have to see you again.
[Bianca takes off her ring and gives it to Reese]
Kendall: I'm sorry I didn't return your calls. I stayed the night at Ryan's.
Kendall: Zach, I'm really worried. He is so angry. He blames everything on you, and he's not letting it go.
Zach: Yeah, your friend Ryan came by and made his threats in person.
Kendall: Well, he wants Jesse to arrest you. Now, I stuck with our story, but Ryan knows something is off. He knows that we're lying.
Zach: All right. Keep your voice down.
Kendall: No, Zach, listen to me. I am Spike's mother. He would never send me to jail. It was an accident. He'll forgive me.
Zach: I said keep your voice down.
Kendall: No, no, I can't lie about this anymore, I can't. I've got to come forward and confess I was the one driving that car.
Zach: You're not going to confess to anything, Kendall.
Erica: I'm not going to stay long. I just wanted to see if you need anything.
Ryan: Actually, I -- I do. I -- I would like very much if you could just take care of Kendall. You see, I'm going after Zach, and I don't want her to get hurt.
Erica: What do you mean?
Ryan: For once, Zach is going to pay for the pain that he's caused people. So, please, ask Kendall not to interfere.
Erica: Ryan, I -- I know that Zach can go to extremes, but -- but he's not a bad person.
Ryan: He cheated on your daughter with your other daughter's fiancée the night before she got married, Erica.
Erica: Oh, listen, I am not going to stick up for him for what he did with Reese. He -- he never should have gone near that woman, or any other woman, for that matter, and he never should have offered to be Bianca's donor without consulting his wife first. However, Kendall -- Kendall wants her marriage to work.
Ryan: Yeah? Well, I wanted my marriage to work, too. But Zach killed Greenlee before I had a chance. And what are his consequences? How -- how does that affect his life? It doesn't. Not yet.
Erica: So, what are you going to do?
Ryan: I am going to take care of Zach. Just, please, take care of Kendall.
Zach: We got to keep our stories straight.
Kendall: Why, Zach? It was an accident. It was an accident. We weren't going after Greenlee. I -- I can't do this. I can't keep the truth from Ryan anymore. I almost told him today.
Zach: Well, maybe if you stopped sleeping at his house. Maybe you can stay away from him for a couple of days. How about that?
Kendall: Ryan will never get over this, just like you wouldn't if I were the one. Then again, after everything that's happened --
Zach: What? After everything that happened -- what? What -- why do you keep doing that? You start and stop, start and stop -- I don't know what that means. What do you -- if you want to say something, say it.
Kendall: Ok. Bianca's marriage is over. She's taking the baby, going back to Paris. Reese will chase them. That's it. What else is there to discuss?
Zach: You know there's other stuff to discuss. You know that.
Kendall: What do you want? What do you want, Zach? You want a fight? You want an ultimatum, permission to bail out of our marriage? Well, forget it, forget it. I am not giving you the easy way out. Unless that's what you want. Do you want out, Zach, so you can move on with Reese?
Krystal: I am going to need some help -- loads of it. But who can I get to pitch in? Hmm -- Adam and J.R.? That's doubtful. Definitely not Tad and Jake, after the way they grilled me about you and the ring.
David: Why don't they just leave you the hell alone? Every time I look up, I see a Martin or a Chandler in your ear, trying to turn you against me. And why? I'm not going after Little A. I don't have any big plan in the works. All I want is to be close to you.
Krystal: You are.
David: They're jealous because we have a second chance. So forget them, all right? Just listen to me in your heart.
Krystal: Yes, Doctor.
David: Ok. I'm going to go take a shower, and when I come back, I'm going to make mad, passionate love to you.
Erica: Ryan, I've never known you to be a vengeful person. I -- I think you're -- you're not thinking straight. You need time to grieve.
Ryan: To just let go of my anger and to forgive? Well, that, Erica, is exactly what Zach is counting on, just like he did with the blackout, just like he did when he pushed that Army woman down the stairs, and when he didn't tell anybody that Annie killed Richie, and just like he did when he shot Josh. The man has to be stopped, Erica. He's a guy who ruins lives, and then he just walks away.
Erica: But in Greenlee's case -- wasn't that an accident? I mean, she ran off the road.
Ryan: She ran off the road, because the car was on the wrong side. The car was on the wrong side, because they were arguing about Zach and Reese. Greenlee wouldn't have been on the road if it wasn't for Zach and Reese. Zach and Reese are behind all of this, Erica. So, please, don't tell me it was an accident. Zach's arrogance killed Greenlee.
Zach: I don't want Reese. Come on, I've told you that a thousand times, but I -- I -- you feel betrayed.
Kendall: I was betrayed.
Zach: Ok. All right. But we keep going around in circles. I mean, if you want to say something, let's -- let's talk about it. But I don't know -- what are you doing? You're going -- you retreat to this place, and you don't say anything, and who is that? My wife -- she comes out and fights. So where is she? Where's my wife?
Kendall: You don't recognize me? I don't recognize anything. How am I supposed to feel about that? How am I supposed to feel about you?
Zach: Let's talk about it.
Kendall: Ok, let's talk about -- about how to fight for our marriage? No, Zach. I had been fighting to wake up, fighting to recover, fighting to catch up with all of you. I can't do it anymore. I am done. I'm done, ok? That's it. You know what? Do whatever you want. Go run off with Reese. Go have another baby -- a girl to make up for the one you gave Bianca. You can do it the old-fashioned way this time.
Zach: Stop. Hey. You can push me as hard as you want. It makes no difference. I'm not going to stop loving you. And we will work through this. And as far as Reese? I don't care about that woman, and I wish she weren't here. I wish I could make her and everybody else just go away.
[Reese hears the conversation]
Kendall: I have to go. My mom needs me.
Krystal: Hello? Hello?
David: Krystal. Don't ever answer my phone again.
Ryan: All you wanted for your birthday was for us to be together. And now that is completely and totally impossible because of Zach. If you were here, Greenlee, would you tell me to let this go? Because I can't. I can't let it go. He took you from me. And now I am taking -- I'm taking everything that means anything to him. I'm taking his company, I'm taking my child back -- all of it. All of it will be mine.
Kendall: What's the big emergency?
Erica: Reese would like to have joint custody of Gabrielle. So, we have to get prepared for the court hearing tomorrow.
Erica: Yes. Listen, I know how difficult this is for -- for both of you. However, it is in times like this, these really hardest of times, that we, the Kane women, we have to pull together. Bianca needs our help.
Kendall: Sorry, Mom. Bianca made this mess. She can clean it up herself.
Reese: You want me gone. Go away, same as Bianca, huh? Ok, well, you hate me, but you love Gabrielle. So, um, we have to stop Bianca, because if we don't, then that beautiful baby girl is gone, and that means we both lose her. So I'm asking you, Zach, to please help me.
