Frankie: How is she?
Angie: Baby made it through the night. Barring any complications, Amanda will carry to term.
Frankie: Does she know?
Angie: I was just about to tell her everything is fine.
Frankie: Well, shall we?
David: Perfect. Nothing I like better than giving a patient good news.
Amanda: Ugh, what do you want?
David: I have an update on your condition.
Aidan: Good morning. How are you?
Annie: Look at me. I'm sitting by a window, and I can see you anytime I want to, no straight Jackets, no restraints, and you should see my room.
Aidan: You deserve this, Annie. You've worked really hard for it.
Annie: If it weren't for you -- you made all this possible.
Emma's voice: Hi, this is Emma. Daddy and Greenlee are going to get married, going to be a family. Yay!
Erica's voice: Ryan, I know you're there. Pick up. Ryan, I know you told Jack that you don't want to come to Greenlee's memorial. If you change your mind, it's at 2:00. I hope we see you.
Jack: Well, I certainly hope this storm holds off until after the service. Did you have any luck with Ryan?
Erica: No, he won't even pick up his phone.
Jack: Well, I guess we can't force him to come.
Erica: But everyone who loved Greenlee should be here.
Jack: I agree, which is why I invited Mary.
Erica: Well, of course, you did. I mean, Greenlee's mother should be here.
Jack: Can I take that to mean you'll be on your best behavior?
Kendall: Um, hi. I've come to post bail for my husband. Can you help me?
Natalia: Sure. What's your husband's name?
Kendall: Zach Slater.
Natalia: Mr. Slater. He's in with the chief.
Jesse: You can't slam security guards around and resist arrest, man.
Zach: I don't like people touching me, Jesse.
Jesse: You don't like people touching you. Killing me here, man. Look, all you have to do is say it was an accident. I send you home.
Zach: Ok. I was angry, and I wanted her gone.
Reese: I want the bandages off.
Jake: I know. Just let the ophthalmologist check you out first.
Reese: Do you know if they got all the glass out?
Jake: Well, we got most of it out with saline solution, and what they couldn't get out, they got out last night in surgery.
Reese: So, I'm going to be fine?
Jake: Yeah, you're going to be fine. I hope so, yes. But if you really want to be fine, you'll press charges and make sure Zach Slater never comes near you again.
Krystal: Angie. Have you -- have you seen David?
Angie: Yeah, uh-huh. He's in with Amanda, again.
Krystal: Listen, it's not what you think. David is not interested in Amanda's baby. In fact, he wants to start a family of our own.
Angie: Will you come on? You know David well enough to know that he won't stop at anything until he gets that baby. That can't happen.
Krystal: I'm not going to say a word, Angie. You know that. There is nothing else I can do.
Angie: You can -- you can talk -- talk to him, distract him. I don't know. Whatever it takes. Look, if you don't want to help Amanda, you think about yourself, your marriage, and how that baby in David's hands will blow it up.
Amanda: Answer me. Did I lose the baby?
David: No, you didn't. Not yet.
Amanda: What is that supposed to mean?
David: One DNA test, that's all it'll take.
Amanda: For the last time, you are not the father. The baby is J.R.'s, so stop with the creepy threats and breathing down my neck and creeping me out.
David: Relax, relax. You say you love this child? Take it easy. Think of someone other than yourself for a change. You wouldn't want to do anything to hurt that little life now, would you?
J.R.: Is this the honeymoon suite, or you just lost?
Krystal: David's in with Amanda.
J.R.: Is the baby all right?
Krystal: Yeah. Angie says that mother and child are fine.
J.R.: I'm going to make sure they stay that way.
Krystal: I'm glad for Amanda's sake and for the baby's.
J.R.: You really are a fan of Amanda and me. Got us all tied up in a bow already. Where's that coming from?
Jesse: Zach, wanting her gone and wanting to hurt her are entirely two different things. And why did you even go to see her?
Zach: Oh, I don't know, my brother. I wanted to sleep with her or kill her, um, I don't know. I'm tired. I want my wife back. I want my life back. I want this over.
Jesse: Well, my guess would be your wife wants you back, too. She's here.
Natalia: You can go on in.
Kendall: Ok. Ahem
Jesse: You posted bail.
Jesse: I'll go sign off on the paperwork.
Zach: You happy?
Kendall: Why would I be happy? My husband just got arrested.
Zach: And the woman you wanted gone is in the hospital.
Kendall: And you think that makes me happy?
Zach: I don't know. It's what you like, isn't it? Passion, drama, everything you like, everything you always wanted. Doesn't matter who gets hurt.
Kendall: There's enough time for you to go home and change for Greenlee's memorial service.
Zach: I'm going to go see Reese in the hospital.
Jake: You know, you're very lucky, because an inch to the left, that glass could've severed an artery.
Reese: Yeah, but it didn't.
Jake: And you're ok with that? Listen, Reese, you need to do something about this now and not later. I will call Jesse, and I'll get somebody down here to take your statement.
Reese: Look, I'm not going to press charges, ok? I -- I was upset. I fell. It was an accident.
Jake: You know, the last time Slater got upset, somebody fell down the staircase. Taylor Thompson could've been paralyzed for life. Josh Madden is dead. Greenlee is dead. I -- this guy needs to be stopped and locked up before he kills somebody else.
Annie: Oh, for me?
Aidan: Yeah. Open it.
Annie: Oh, it's beautiful and blank.
Aidan: I want you to write down everything you're feeling, whether you're feeling sad, frustrated, or lonely. That way, you keep all the dark stuff out of your head and in the book.
Annie: Well, today doesn't feel so dark. I think I can actually fill these pages with good thoughts.
Aidan: Well, when I get back, I want to see pages and pages.
Annie: What do you mean? You're -- you're leaving already?
Aidan: It's, um, it's Greenlee's memorial today.
Aidan: Jack asked me to go.
Annie: Oh. Ryan must be crushed.
Aidan: He is.
Annie: And you loved her, too.
Aidan: Well, I did. I did once.
Erica: You really think I'd make a scene at -- at your daughter's memorial? I am capable of rising above Mary's self-centered, self-involved, self-possessed, self, self, self choices. Hey, I'm the one who invited her to Greenlee's bridal shower.
Jack: Yes, but you did that to torture Greenlee.
Erica: Think what you will. Now that your daughter's gone, I'm sure that Mary is very grateful for any time she had with her.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. I think we all need a last memory of Greenlee that we can hold on to. I'll tell you what mine is. It's at the -- at the rehearsal dinner. Remember how happy she was? So full of life and love and looking so forward to the future. Ah.
Emma's voice: Hi, this is Emma. Daddy and Greenlee are going to get married, going to be a family. Yay!
Emma's voice: Daddy and Greenlee are going to get married.
Emma's voice: Daddy and Greenlee are going to get married.
[Ryan throws the answering machine against the wall]
Krystal: I remember what it was like to be a single mom I -- I'm just glad you're there for Amanda and the baby.
J.R.: This baby will have whatever he or she needs.
Krystal: You know that's more than just a pile of toys and some cute clothes. Babies need lots of hugging, and kissing, and holding. A double dose is even better. You know that, raising little a without Babe.
J.R.: I'm not going to just write the checks, Krystal. This baby is already as loved as Little A. I'm going to be a part of its life.
Krystal: And Amanda's?
J.R.: I'm going to be a father to this baby. Beyond that, I don't know.
David: Well, here he is. The proud daddy.
J.R.: How is she?
David: I'm happy to report that your bun is still in the oven.
J.R.: Well, that's great. Now you can leave.
David: Oh, you want time alone to pick out names? I understand. This could've been much worse. Maybe now you realize how fragile life is, how everything can be taken away just like that.
J.R.: What? How you doing?
J.R.: Thank God the baby's all right.
J.R.: How about you? You still look a little pale.
Amanda: I hate him so much.
J.R.: That's all right. I'm going to keep you and this baby safe.
Annie: Greenlee left you, Aidan, just like Ryan left me, and it was her choice, not yours, and it killed you, so don't -- don't do that. Don't do that Aidan thing, that soldiering on like everything's fine, and "it's all over," because it's not. You can't -- you can't keep those -- those feelings bottled up.
Aidan: Well, maybe I'll get a diary.
Annie: No, Aidan, I mean it. You have to deal with those feelings just like I had to deal with my feelings about Ryan. This is your chance to really move on.
Erica: Thank heavens. I'm so glad that you're here. I was beginning to worry. I was beginning to worry that you wouldn't come, and I think Greenlee would really want all the people she loved most to be here today.
Kendall: Ryan's not coming?
Jack: Well, we asked him, again, but he refused.
Erica: Yeah, he's -- he's not even picking up his phone.
Erica: So, where's Zach? Is he here?
Kendall: He's with Reese.
Zach: I need to see Reese Williams. What room is she in?
Jake: Gayle, I got this, thanks.
Zach: How's she doing?
Jake: How is she doing? Well, she had to have shards of glass removed from her eyes all night. How do you think she's doing?
Zach: Is she going to be ok?
Jake: Well, she might not see again because of you. You know, the thing about you, Slater, is you get upset, people seem to get hurt or they -- or they die. How many bodies have to pile up before somebody stops you?
Zach: Excuse me. I need to talk to Reese.
Jake: Gayle, call security. Have a guard put on Miss Williams' door, ok?
Gayle: Yes, Doctor.
Jake: And if this gentleman tries to get near the room or near the patient, just have him arrested. Excuse me while I tend to another one of your victims.
David: Well, this is a nice surprise. Hey.
David: What are you doing here?
Krystal: Oh, I just thought I would take you to Greenlee's memorial. I know how much she meant to you and your brother Leo.
David: Yeah, she did, but I don't think I'd be particularly welcome there at the service right now.
Krystal: This is about nothing but Greenlee, ok? I know that she touched your life, and you have every right to be there to honor hers.
Aidan: You know, no one's ever hurt me more than Greenlee did, but, then again, no one's made me laugh more than she did either.
Annie: I'm so sorry, Aidan. Maybe if Ryan and I could have saved our marriage, then you and Greenlee, maybe --
Aidan: No, nothing that happened with my marriage was your fault, all right? I was the one that decided to bug my wife and eavesdrop on her conversations with Ryan, all right? I broke her trust. That's why my marriage ended.
Annie: We're kind of alike, you know, you and me. I mean, you're
not crazy. You're perfectly sane, but the whole love thing? We both
loved Ryan and Greenlee so much that when we felt them slipping
away, we became self-destructive, and in the end, we lost them
I lost my husband and my daughter and my chance at having a family, and maybe all that happened because -- because of all of the horrible things that I've done.
Aidan: You made mistakes, Annie, all right? But you deserve to be happy.
Annie: Are you happy?
Aidan: Yeah, I am, when I'm with you.
Erica: How's Reese?
Zach: Why do you care? We all know how you feel about her.
Erica: Yeah, I'm not going to embrace the woman who broke Bianca's heart and hurt your marriage.
Zach: My marriage is hurt because my wife won't let it go.
Erica: Zach, Kendall came out of a coma to -- to learn that you have two new women in your life, Reese and Gabrielle. Yes, she's still struggling to accept that change.
Zach: Accept it, huh? Accept it? She asked me to choose between her and my daughter. I cut my daughter out of my life to show my wife how much I love her, how much my family means to me, but she wants more. She wants Reese gone.
Erica: Well, Reese has damaged our family at every turn.
Zach: Well, the old Kendall would've understood, would've trusted me.
Erica: The old Kendall?
Zach: Yeah. I know -- you know what I mean. There's -- there's something about her ever since she woke up from the coma. She's -- she talks, she listens, but when she -- she puts up words. It's this wall, and she pushes people away. I don't know what that is.
Erica: Well, she lost three months of her life. You know she had a heart transplant, and she woke up to learn that you have a baby girl, Gabrielle. Her brother, her best friend, they just died. I'm sure you can understand that she is a little bit overwhelmed. Look, Greenlee's memorial service is -- is going to start soon.
Zach: I'm not going.
Erica: Kendall really needs your support, Zach.
Zach: So does Reese.
Erica: Reese is not your wife.
Zach: Yeah. I'm going to be here when they take the bandages off.
Erica: Holding Reese's hand is not your responsibility, Zach.
Zach: Your Kendall's mother, not mine. Thank you.
Kendall: Guess you didn't hear me knocking, huh?
Ryan: What do you want?
Kendall: I just wanted to know if you wanted a ride to the memorial, to Confusion.
Ryan: I'm not going.
Kendall: Ryan, I am so sorry. If I had just paid attention, Greenlee would be here.
Ryan: It wasn't your fault, Kendall.
Kendall: Please come, Ryan. It'll help.
Ryan: So -- so I go, and then what happens? Everybody comes over to me, and they give me a big hug, and then they tell me how sorry they are. Greenlee died too young. What can they do about that? Nothing.
Ryan: I'm not going.
Kendall: Yeah. It's so much better to sit and stare at a picture, ignore phone calls, break things. There's a chance, a slight chance, but there's also a chance that being around people who loved Greenlee might help.
Angie: Jackson, I am so sorry.
Jack: Thank you.
Jesse: If there's anything we can do, just --
Jack: You know, actually there is. You can -- you can help us celebrate Greenlee's life.
Angie: We can do that, right?
Kendall: Ryan was in such a bad place. I don't think he's going to be here.
Opal: Uh-oh. We are about to see lightning strike indoors.
Erica: Mary. I'm so glad you're here. I just lost my son Josh, and I didn't know if you knew that, but I completely understand what it's like to lose a child that you didn't get to spend enough time with, and you always think that you have tomorrow, and then -- and then, they're gone. You just deeply, deeply regret every second you didn't get to spend with them.
Erica: I'm so sorry.
Opal: We are witnessing a bona fide miracle here.
Kendall: Yeah, well, I think the real miracle would be if Ryan showed up.
Opal: Well, you have faith, honey, then you're halfway there. Excuse me, I'm going to get some air. No, no, no, you should stay, Ryan. You should stay. You asked me to help you contact Greenlee. You were desperate to feel her spirit.
Ryan: But you didn't feel anything.
Opal: But I'm willing to bet that if she was going to make herself known that she would do it in a place like this in a room that's filled with the love of all of her family and friends.
Jack: David. Hey, Krystal.
Krystal: Parents shouldn't outlive their children.
Krystal: I wish I could say it gets easier.
Jake: Oh, what are you doing here? If you've come to cause any kind of trouble, honestly --
David: You'll what?
Krystal: Come on. Let's -- let's go sit down.
Randi: Why is he here?
Jake: Because his brother was married to Greenlee, and I guess they were some sort of friends. God only knows why.
Randi: I'm so happy everything's ok with the baby, but do you think you should be here?
Amanda: I wouldn't miss saying goodbye to Greenlee for the world.
J.R.: Not exactly stress free.
Amanda: Well, food would help, something not gray and mushy.
Randi: I know just the thing. Come on.
Frankie: Hey. Doing all right?
J.R.: Yeah, good.
Jake: So, you -- you had kicked Amanda out. Now you're chauffeuring her around the place. What's that all about?
Frankie: Oh, excuse me.
J.R.: Maybe I made a mistake.
Jake: Or maybe you're just playing her. Is that all part of your plan? You, uh, support her, you cater to her every whim, and then she really believes that -- that you've forgiven her?
J.R.: You think?
Jake: Well, she'd be so grateful. She'd do anything for you. You'd end up with the kid. She said you wanted the kid. It's so Chandler of you. It's -- it's as if you really are sober. It's kind of brilliant.
J.R.: Well, I'm not that good. I'm not that bad either.
Reese: Who's there?
Zach: It's me.
Reese: Why are you here?
Zach: To make sure you're ok.
Reese: No, you want to make nice so I don't have you thrown in jail.
Zach: I've never been accused of making nice.
Reese: Don't worry. I'm not going to press charges, but don't think this has scared me off either, ok? I'm not leaving town.
Zach: It's your choice.
Reese: I'm staying. I'm going to build on what I started.
Zach: Not much to build on.
Reese: Look, Bianca's going to know that I love her, and I'm not afraid of you. I'm not afraid of Kendall, so tell your wife she better learn to deal.
Jack: Aidan, thank you for coming.
Aidan: Yeah, sure. If it's all right with you, I'll just, uh, stand in the back.
Jack: Well, actually, I'd -- I'd hoped you'd say a few words.
Aidan: Um, I'd rather not.
Erica: Maybe we should start.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. Thank you all for coming here today to celebrate Greenlee's life. I know she touched every life in this room in one way or another, sometimes whether you liked it or not. I didn't know Greenlee was my daughter until she was an adult. She came into my life with a bang, and once in her orbit, my life was never really the same after that. I miss her every day, and I remember the joy and passion with which she lived her life, and I think that's her gift to us, that -- that example. I know I will try to live my life like that from now on every day.
Mary: I forgot Greenlee's birthday more often than I remembered it because I was always in some other zip code or time zone for the most important events of her life, but I did get to share her bridal shower and see her happy and in love and settled.
Mary: I regret the time that I didn't spend with her, and I will always be grateful for being there for her happy day.
Erica: It's a well-known fact that Greenlee and I didn't see eye to eye on many things. On anything.
Amanda: Greenlee gave me a chance at Fusion, and that meant so much to me.
Jake: The girl was a remote hogger. She'd hog the remote. She did. She also had no appreciation for fine dog art, pictures with dogs in it.
Erica: But Greenlee was passionate about life and about the people she loved.
Amanda: She could be a hard-ass, but she was fair.
Jake: Greenlee was the person you wanted to be stranded on a dessert island with. She was also really good at playing "Three's Company." It's a long story.
Kendall: Hate at first sight, that was Greenlee and me. We fought over jobs, men, the color of the sky, and then we made lipstick together. We became business partners and best friends. Oh, we still fought. We -- we still hurt each other, but our bond was deeper and stronger than any angry words, no matter how deep they cut. I always assumed that what we had would always be there no matter how angry we had been, how far apart we were, or how much time we'd spent away from each other, and then one day, I realized there are no guarantees. No matter how hard you love or how close you are, it can all be taken away in an instant. I still can't accept that Greenlee's gone. I still hit her speed-dial number, and I wait to hear her laugh. I, um, I still expect to see her walk through the door.
Annie's voice: Dear Ryan, I'm sorry for causing you and our daughter so much pain. I was so desperate to keep you, to make you love me, and all I did was tear apart our family, but I'm better now. I finally understand that it's time for me to move on, too, build a new life with someone else.
Nurse: Annie, it's time for group.
Kendall: I'm glad you're here.
Ryan: Well, I -- I remember the first time -- I remember the first second, actually, that I -- that I laid eyes on Greenlee. She was -- she was working as an intern at WRCW, and she came over to me, and she introduced herself, and she shook my hand, and she described herself as an unusual woman, and, um, from that point on, Greenlee was -- was part of my life, and my life would be never be usual again. We -- we fell in love. First we got married, but then we fell in love, and she vowed to me that she would give me a surprise a day, a surprise every single day, and she never let me -- she never let me down. Um, never been big on the whole fate concept. I wasn't, but I honestly believe that, uh, I believe that Greenlee and I were -- we were meant to be together, and we were finally -- we were so close to getting what we fought so hard to have, and she was, um, she was taken away from all of us. I -- I don't know how to say goodbye. I kind of feel like -- like I just kind of said hello again, you know? And now, she's gone, and --
Ryan: And I miss her. I miss her a lot, and I sure as hell don't have enough memories of her, and I would give anything -- I would give anything just to -- just to get a sign that she's all right.
Annie: Oh, hey. How was Greenlee's memorial?
Aidan: Um, it was all right, but I kind of had a breakthrough of
my own. You know, everyone there was just sharing their memories of
-- of Greenlee, and I remember loving her, but I realized that I
don't love her anymore, and I didn't want to share my memories or
past. All I wanted to do was -- was come back here and see you.
Jake: Think it's been a rather long day, don't you? Maybe you need to get a little rest and go to bed.
Amanda: The whole doctor thing makes you really bossy.
J.R.: I think Jake is right. Baby Chandler needs a nap.
Krystal: Are you ok?
David: It's all right. Relax. It's just an atmospheric electrical condition. It's not Greenlee trying to reach us from beyond the grave.
Opal: Someone's pulling on me. Someone's cold and alone.
Opal: It's Greenlee.
David: Come on. You don't actually believe in that voodoo nonsense now, do you?
Opal: She -- she's in trouble. She's trapped. She's got no way out.
David: Really? How terrible.
Kendall: What changed your mind?
Ryan: Since the accident, I've, um, I guess I've been waiting for somebody to wake me up, to kick-start my life again, and today I realized that that's not going to happen, nobody -- nobody's going to do that, that I'm alone.
Kendall: No, you're not.
Zach: I'm sorry.
Reese: Look, I don't want an apology.
Zach: If there's anything I can do, you --
Reese: But I don't want anything from you, ok? Not your guilt, not your pity, not your help. Just please get out.
Doctor: Ms. Williams, it's Dr. Santa-Maria. I'm going to remove the bandages, check on your progress. Ok.
Reese: Am I going to be ok?
Dr. Santa-Maria: Well, you suffered a trauma. Recovery always takes some time. Now, your eyes may be sensitive to the light, problems with focus and depth perception. Ok. All right, Ms. Williams, tell me what you see.
Reese: Nothing. I see nothing.
