D.A. North: It's been a long time, Randi. I've never stopped thinking of you.
[Henry kisses Randi]
Randi: I don't do that anymore.
D.A. North: Well, you're not out of practice, that's for sure.
Randi: I'm serious. I have -- I have a husband. I'm married.
D.A. North: Good for you.
Randi: I have a real job now.
D.A. North: That doesn't have to limit your choices.
Erica: After Adam worked so hard to help you get custody of Little Adam? He always says that his family comes first, last, and always. He kicks you out for Annie?
J.R.: Yeah. He chose her over his own grandson.
Erica: You tell me what in God's name has gotten into Adam.
J.R.: You tell me, then we'll both know.
Liza: Well, I hope you intend on keeping your part of the bargain about Colby.
Colby: What bargain? Mm, let me guess. You agreed to defend Annie, because you promised you'd help her get back into my life full-time, even though I've moved out, and I'm hardly speaking to you.
Liza: Is it such a horrible thing for a mother to want to be a part of her daughter's life?
Adam: I only wanted to try to keep peace between you and your mother.
Colby: No, you used me as a bargaining chip. You've been doing it all my life. See you the kid, raise you the kid. Ante-ing me back and forth in some never-ending, stupid game. Well, guess what? You don't have that kind of power anymore. I'm an adult, and I don't have to answer to either of you.
Aidan: You're playing it beautifully.
[Aidan kisses Annie]
Annie: What -- what are you doing?
Aidan: I want to make sure you're ok.
Annie: You're spying on me. What, you think one kiss and I'll swoon, and I'll admit that I'm playing this whole thing to grab Emma? What, is that what you think?
Aidan: I don't know what you're doing.
Annie: I am trying to get my life back, so you can turn around and leave here, Aidan, because I don't need you anymore. I have Adam now.
D.A. North: I was so much more than a client.
Randi: That was a different life.
D.A. North: That doesn't mean I've forgotten it. I don't think you have either. I keep a room at the Yacht Club. You'll meet me there in an hour.
Randi: I can't.
D.A. North: You owe me. You really are beautiful. After you.
Jesse: Oh, hey, there you are. We were wondering where you were. Oh, did you two meet? This is my daughter-in-law, Randi. This is Henry North, the DA.
D.A. North: Pleased to meet you.
Randi: Nice to meet you. Did Frankie need anything?
Jesse: Just you.
D.A. North: Lovely girl.
Jesse: Yeah, she is.
D.A. North: Your son's a lucky man.
Jesse: Yeah, he is.
Annie: I'm sorry. It's not that I don't care about you, ok? You have risked so much for me time after time. You were going to give up your life here in Pine Valley to go on the run with me. My God, I owe you so much.
Aidan: You owe me the truth. I mean, what are you doing here?
Annie: Adam has been amazing. I would be back in prison if it wasn't for his connections, my new lawyer. I could really be free, Aidan. Not the kind of free where I'm looking over my shoulder or wearing wigs or learning a new language kind of free, but really free, here in Pine Valley.
Aidan: I know what you're getting out of this, but what does Adam get, huh?
Annie: Oh, it's nothing to do with that. It's not like that at all. Adam believes in me.
Aidan: I believe in you. I always have.
Annie: You believed in me at first, and I really, really appreciate that, but there was always some doubt in the back of your mind. I could see it. But when I look at Adam, I see something I need. Someone who is going to believe in me 100%.
Aidan: And someone that's going to put millions of dollars behind that belief. You really trust Adam Chandler?
Annie: I don't need to explain myself to you anymore.
Aidan: You need to think about what you're doing, honey.
Annie: Goodbye, Aidan.
Colby: Why should I be surprised? When you wanted David to operate on Ian Slater, you gave him access to Little Adam. You turned your grandkid into a timeshare in return for services rendered. Now you -- you need a lawyer for Annie, so you make the same kind of deal with Mom. Services rendered, payment in full. Well, I'm not playing.
Liza: Listen to me, Colby. We are not manipulating you.
Colby: Yeah, right.
Liza: You know, I'm doing all of this just because -- Colby, I love you, and I'm trying to be close with you in hopes that someday we can have a close relationship. Honey, do you think that that is possible?
Colby: I'll be around for my little sister or brother, because as soon as the kid's old enough, they're going to need someone to explain their mom to them. I'll tell them it's real simple. If your mouth's open, you're lying. If it's closed, you're deciding which lie to tell.
Adam: Colby, that's -- that's not necessary.
Liza: Ok, you know what? That's all right.
Colby: Scary, really. You are perfect for each other.
Adam: Oh, boy -- oh boy. She's -- she's really emotional, irrational. She gets that from you.
Erica: I'm sorry, J.R. You must be furious at Adam.
J.R.: I'm trying to understand. Just the other day he told me helping Annie was his way of honoring Uncle Stuart, but this is --
Erica: No, I mean, there are so many genuinely deserving people, but to harbor some insane murderess?
J.R.: I agree. But he's dead set on helping her. He lost Uncle Stuart, Colby moved out, I blew him off half the time. It's like he's looking for someone, I don't know -- someone who needs him. I don't need him. You sure as hell don't. But with Annie, he can be the all-powerful Adam Chandler. Not the guy that half a dozen people tried to murder. Not the guy who was afraid that he was losing his mind.
Erica: He's very lucky to have you as a son.
J.R.: Still, I'd like to go a few rounds with him and knock some sense into him. I think I'll wait and see what happens.
Erica: I don't think I have that kind of patience.
Marissa: Hey, mission accomplished. I talked to the manager. You and Little A have a prime suite with a complementary fruit basket.
J.R.: Oh, that's great. Thank you.
Marissa: Yep, nice to have connections.
Erica: Well, Ryan is waiting for me at the table, so excuse me.
J.R.: So shall we go check out our suite?
Little Adam: Could Aunt Marissa read a bedtime story to me?
J.R.: Well, that sounds like a good idea. If you have some time -- you're not too busy?
Marissa: No, there's nothing I'd rather do.
J.R.: Come on.
Marissa: Come on.
Erica: I can't believe that Adam threw out his own flesh and blood in favor of harboring this insane lady, this murderer.
Ryan: I know you offered to help, but you are not going over to Chandler's tonight.
Erica: Of course I'm not. Waste my time like that? I have a pile of production notes for "New Beginnings," and I also have the color story for Fusion's fall line to sign off on. No, no, no, of course I'm not going. I have way too much to do.
Ryan: All right. Well, you've got your hands full. I'll let you get to it, ok? And thank you for the dance.
Erica: You're welcome.
Taylor: Hey, can I get a ride? Are you ok?
Brot: Yeah, I'm fine.
Taylor: Really? Because you didn't come home last night, and you didn't answer your cell and you didn't return any of my messages.
Brot: Well, I had to work the graveyard shift.
Taylor: You mean you're avoiding me.
Brot: No, I just turned my cell phone off, and I can't talk right now. I've got to deliver these supplies to the OR, ok?
Taylor: No, wait, wait, no. You walked out on me yesterday at ConFusion. You don't get to walk out on me again.
Brot: Taylor, I'm working.
Taylor: And you're off in a little while. Or are you planning to work for 36 hours straight?
Brot: Let me deliver these supplies. I'll clock out, then we'll talk. Ok?
Frankie: Ah, the most beautiful wife in the world. I thought you got lost.
Randi: No, I got stuck in the elevator.
Frankie: Yeah, well, I'm glad you're back.
Randi: I'm glad there's a smile on your face. You're going to go through with the surgery?
Frankie: Yes, because if I didn't, you'll kick my butt. There is just one thing, though. I can do the reading part, but I cannot do the signing, so would you do it for me?
Randi: Of course.
Frankie: Thank you for never giving up on me.
Randi: You never gave up on me.
Frankie: It means everything that you're here.
[Randi recalls being in bed with Henry North]
D.A. North: You mean everything to me. I love you, you know that? These last few months have been incredible. You are incredible. I want to spend my life with you, Randi.
Randi: You know who I am.
D.A. North: You're an amazing woman.
Randi: Who charges by the hour.
D.A. North: We'll go anywhere you want, get married, make a life.
Randi: I don't know.
D.A. North: Please, say "Yes," Randi. Come with me, just the two of us forever.
[Randi comes out of her reverie]
Randi: I'll always be here for you.
D.A. North: Is there any particular reason you're not out working the Kendall Slater case?
Jesse: I've got people on it.
D.A. North: Any progress?
D.A. North: Then we have a problem. And you need to solve it.
Marissa: Tugga-tugga tugboat. Splash and spray and float, boat. On the double, when there's trouble. Toot toot.
Little Adam: Toot toot.
J.R.: All right, it's time for bed. Why don't you give your Aunt Marissa a kiss goodnight?
Little Adam: Again, please.
Marissa: Yeah, one more.
J.R.: Sorry, that was the only book that I packed. I'm all out of bedtime stories.
Little Adam: Tell me a story about Mama.
Frankie: It is so weird being on the other side as a patient. You learn so much stuff. Disclaimers, consent forms, release forms, and so forth.
Frankie: And then there's this thing about running off together.
Randi: Excuse me?
Frankie: Oh, ahh -- I was thinking we could go somewhere once I get out of here. Anywhere -- we could take that honeymoon that we never had.
Randi: I'd like that.
[Randi flashes back to the past again]
D.A. North: Tell me you'll come away with me.
Randi: We've only known each other a few months.
D.A. North: I want to know you for the rest of my life, and I don't want to wait for it.
Randi: What about your career?
D.A. North: A lawyer can get a job anywhere. All I want, all I need is you. We'll leave tomorrow. We'll -- we'll take the train to New York and flip a coin and go from there.
Randi: This is just --
D.A. North: It's crazy, I know.
D.A. North: But I love you, Randi. Say we can meet at the train station tomorrow.
[Randi comes back to the present]
Frankie: You ok?
Jesse: Really not liking this guy North.
[Adam stares at a picture of himself and Stuart]
Annie: Liza left?
Adam: Uh, yes, yes.
Annie: You must really miss your brother.
Adam: Well, yes, yes, I have -- I miss having him by my side, telling me to play nice, or telling me that there's more to life than money. And that's -- he actually pulled me out of a business meeting once to watch a butterfly emerge from its cocoon.
Annie: I'm so sorry he's gone.
Adam: Yeah. Sometimes life deals us harsh cards and how we deal with them is what makes us stronger. You, on the other hand, have overcome more than your share of bad hands.
Annie: With your help.
[Door closes as Annie takes Adam's hand]
Erica: Am I interrupting? Or are you taking his pulse?
Adam: Erica, what a lovely surprise.
Erica: Well, I hope you've locked up all your knives.
Adam: Well, is that any way to behave in front of my houseguest?
Annie: You know what? I have some unpacking to do.
Erica: Oh, Adam. Have you lost your mind? I mean, you really need to check yourself into Oak Haven right alongside Annie.
Adam: I'm trying to help a woman in need.
Erica: You are helping a killer, Adam. And you threw your son and your grandson out on the street to do it.
Adam: The Yacht Club is hardly skid row, for God's sakes.
Erica: Well, J.R. may not come back.
Adam: J.R. always comes back.
Erica: Oh, I see. In the meantime you're free to chase that piece of candy around your house.
Adam: Erica. My God, you're jealous.
Erica: I don't care if you shack up with the road company of "Cats." I'm just trying to convince you to stop making a fool of yourself over a woman who is manipulating you.
Adam: If you've just come here to not be jealous, then I suggest you leave, because I have some serious candy-chasing to do.
Erica: Yeah, well, she's chasing you, Adam, for your power and your money. She's hoping it gets her acquitted, and once she gets acquitted, she won't stop until she gets custody of Emma. Please open your eyes, Adam. Please don't be a fool. Please don't let that happen.
Adam: Erica, I -- I never realized how delicious you are in green.
Ryan: Shouldn't you be at Adam's right now with a welcoming bottle of champagne for Annie?
Liza: Don't be bitter.
Ryan: What do you want me to be, Liza? Do you want me to be happy that you got Annie back out on the street again?
Liza: She's not out on the streets, and she deserves to be treated fairly.
Ryan: You know, it's funny because I'm more interested in what my 7-year-old daughter deserves, like being able to go to bed and not worry about her mother kidnapper in the middle of the night.
Liza: I understand that you don't trust her, but Annie loves her daughter.
Ryan: Good, well, then tell her to send postcards and picture books.
Liza: Look, her future depends on the psychiatric evaluation.
Ryan: By a court-appointed shrink bought and paid for by Adam Chandler.
Liza: No, Adam will have nothing to do with who the court appoints. This will be a fair evaluation.
Ryan: How long have you known Annie? What, like a couple days? About that, right? If you'd known her as long as I have, you would know that she could fool any shrink, just like she fooled me and Aidan and now Adam and you.
Liza: You know that your testimony against Annie will be weighed very heavily.
Ryan: Is that why you're here? Because you want me to go easy on her?
Liza: What I said today in court was not a tactic. When you rejected her for Greenlee, that is what pushed her over the edge.
Ryan: And I'm really sorry about that. Really, I'm very sorry about that, but you know what? Sometimes in life things don't work out the way you want. It doesn't mean you go on a killing spree. And now you're trying to help a dangerous, unstable woman take my daughter from me, and I will not let that happen.
Taylor: So let's talk. Just tell me what's going on.
Brot: After the fight, I came back, and I saw you sitting here with Tad Martin.
Taylor: Ok, so?
Brot: You were sitting there laughing and just happy. Exactly what doesn't happen when you're with me.
Taylor: That's not true. We laugh all the time.
Brot: Yeah, but the way you looked, Taylor, you were so relaxed and just worry-free.
Taylor: Well, I was laughing with a friend.
Brot: Taylor, you're not happy. And the both of us know that you want more. But the issue is that I'm just now starting to find out what it is that I want to do with my life.
Taylor: I know, I know. I know. We've talked about this so many times. Is this an excuse? Brot, you've been walking around with an engagement ring in your pocket since you came back, and you always have an excuse for not pulling it out. You're looking for a job, you're trying to figure out your life. I'm not forcing you to ask me. Maybe you are just waiting for the right time. Maybe -- maybe you figured out there isn't a right time. I just want to know what it is.
Brot: Taylor, I love you.
Taylor: Ok, but don't say that to avoid answering the question. Why haven't you proposed to me?
Brot: Because my mother always told me, "Don't ask the woman you love a question that you don't know the answer to."
Taylor: You're afraid I'll turn you down?
Brot: Would you be happy if I got down on my knee right now and asked you to marry me? What would you say?
Taylor: That's my proposal?
Brot: See? That's how it's been ever since I came back. You're on one side, and I'm on the other. And all we do is go around in these damn circles, but we never get close enough. Things are good, but they're not as good as they used to be. I mean, both of us want it to happen, but we've been dancing around it for so long that we don't know if we can get us back.
Jesse: This guy, man, this North is a pompous ass.
Frankie: Where is this coming from?
Jesse: He doesn't give a damn about justice. All he cares about is his trip to the governor's mansion. That's no way to serve people.
Frankie: Yeah, well, you tell me how many politicians you know who aren't bottom-feeding egomaniacs?
Jesse: No, not this guy. I mean, ambition, I get that, but this -- there's something off about this clown, man. I don't -- it's just like somebody kicked his puppy when he was a kid, and he never got over it.
[Frankie laughs while Randi looks guilty]
J.R.: I was in the Merchant Marines. I was on leave in San Diego, and I couldn't sleep, so I decided to take a walk on one of the piers. In the moonlight was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen, like a princess. Except this particular princess was crying.
Little Adam: Why was she crying?
J.R.: Well, she was sad and lonely. So we started talking. And we talked and we talked and we talked and we talked until it was dawn. It was so beautiful, as if God had painted it himself. But it didn't compare to your mother. I looked into her eyes, and I fell all the way. And my whole life changed forever. You ok?
Marissa: Yeah. That was -- I've just never heard anyone talk about someone they love like that.
J.R.: She was incredible.
Erica: Adam, you need to step back and take a really good look at exactly who this woman is.
Adam: I understand Annie.
Erica: Adam, you think you're playing hero to Annie, but she's making a fool out of you.
Adam: Hmm, no, I know exactly what I'm doing. And I suggest you stand back before I have security throw you out. Or do I go after my panic button?
Erica: You know something? With Annie in your house, you better start to panic.
Annie: It must be so hard for you to realize that Adam doesn't need you anymore.
Erica: Excuse me?
Annie: Well, isn't it obvious? I can take care of him in ways that you can't
Erica: Yes, you've already proven your talent for stabbing and maybe more. But don't worry. You won't be in this house long enough to try anything again.
Adam: I'm sorry about that.
Annie: Do you think she's in love with you?
Ryan: Well, I wish that Annie was a sane, loving mother that I could just share custody with. That would be great. But she's not. She ambushed Emma on the way to catch a school bus in the morning. She came to her in the middle of the night with a loaded weapon, ok? She gets her to keep secrets. She gets her to tell lies. Do you not think that would mess with a seven-year-old's head?
Liza: I'm not saying that there aren't problems here, but Annie loves her daughter, and there's no doubt that Emma loves Annie.
Ryan: And I understand that. I do, but my priority is to protect my daughter.
Liza: Emma is going to need her mother someday.
Ryan: Which is what you are hoping for yourself, right? I mean, after you screwed up with Colby so badly, and she ran from you, you're hoping that someday she's going to need you so, so much that she forgives you for everything.
Liza: I'm just trying to find a way to help Annie have a relationship with her daughter someday in the future.
Ryan: What do you want me to do, Liza? What, do you want me to say that she can bake a mean oatmeal cookie, that she can make pretty little picture books? Is that it? Because I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to change my testimony. She is sick and she needs help. Now get out.
D.A. North: Can I get you something? Wine?
Randi: Henry, what do you want?
D.A. North: You never showed up that day. I waited at that train station all day.
Randi: It would've never worked.
D.A. North: So you ran? I looked for you for weeks. You just completely vanished on me, Randi. Not even a call. Nothing. Gone.
Randi: It was the only way. Henry, I was just some hooker you helped out of a jam, not exactly wife material for some hot new lawyer just getting into politics.
D.A. North: So I was just a get-out-of-jail-free card? All those things you said, the nights we spent together, and the way you looked at me, that was just you working the system?
Randi: No, Henry. It was much more than that, and you know it.
Ryan: Hey, my little ladybug. What are you doing awake? Huh?
Emma: Why doesn't Mommy visit us?
Ryan: Well, she can't right now.
Emma: But she's not in the hospital or prison. She's at Little Adam's house. Doesn't she love me?
Erica: Oh, of course, she loves you, sweetheart. She loves you so much. And as much as she loves you, honey, she wants to see you, but she can't see you until the judge says it's ok.
Emma: I hope it's soon.
Ryan: Yeah. Hey, why don't you go back to bed, ok? It's very, very late. But first you got to give me a kiss for sweet dreams. Come here. Ok, go back to bed. All right, sweetie.
Ryan: I thought you were buried in "New Beginnings" and Fusion paperwork.
Erica: Yeah, I got sidetracked.
Ryan: You didn't?
Erica: I did. I did. I had to. But, Ryan, you are not going to like what I saw.
Adam: Erica in love with me? Hardly. She just wants to be the center of everyone's universe.
Annie: Ah, yeah, especially yours.
Adam: Well, she helped me through a hard time recently. So we became pretty close.
Annie: Well, you don't need her anymore. You have me now.
Adam: Well, yeah, you. Have you gotten unpacked? Are you ok with the room? You like it?
Annie: Yes and yes.
Annie: So right now I'm going to go do something I've been dreaming about since I got here.
Adam: What might that be?
Annie: I'm going to take a nice, long, hot bath.
Frankie: Hey, thanks for waiting.
Brot: Don't mention it.
Frankie: I just want to tell you, you were right. Total coward. But I'm going to see the wizard, and I'm getting my courage back.
Brot: Glad to hear that, man.
Frankie: Yeah. You and Randi, you guys kept me on track. And that's where I want to stay. Hey, I even decided to go and get some more surgery to see if we can get these mitts back in action.
Frankie: Yeah. All right, what's up?
Brot: Man, it's Taylor and I. It's just not the same, Frankie.
Frankie: You guys are -- you can make it work, right?
Brot: No. No, we can't. We're not like you and Randi. You guys were like solid before you got hurt. Taylor and I, it was like some fantasy romance that was developing in a war --
Frankie: No, no, no. I saw you guys over there. Man, that was real.
Brot: No, man. "Real" in Iraq does not translate into "real" in Pine Valley. Frankie, I'm telling you, it's not the same. And I don't know if we can fix it, man.
[Taylor sits alone and thinks of Brot and the way they used to be]
Brot's voice: We both want it to happen, but we've been dancing around it all this time. And we don't know how to get us back, do we?
D.A. North: If you felt that way about me, why did you disappear?
Randi: The things you said, the life you wanted, the things you wanted to do with your life, I didn't fit into those pictures. I tried, but I just knew that I couldn't.
D.A. North: So you ran away?
Randi: I would have ruined your life.
D.A. North: You did that.
Randi: I didn't. You're successful, you're married. It's all worked out.
D.A. North: The hell it has. I'm successful because a career is all I have. I married my wife because her family is rich and connected, not because she makes me laugh, not because she dances out of bed in the morning, and not because she touches me the way no other woman ever did.
Randi: I'm sorry.
D.A. North: I loved you more than I've ever loved anyone, and you threw it in my face.
Randi: I love my life, I love my husband, so I just need for you to forget about me. When you see me, just don't even -- don't even say hello, and I'll do the same.
D.A. North: So that's it? Just like that? If that's the way you want to play it, we're strangers.
Randi: Thank you.
J.R.: Thank you so much for helping out with Little Adam. He's really getting attached to his Aunt Marissa.
Marissa: Well, his Aunt Marissa is getting really attached to him. See you soon. And you, too.
Colby: What, are you tracking me on your GPS?
Liza: Colby, you're right. I am helping out your father to get closer to you. I love you, and I just need you in my life, but I can't force you to accept me. I mean, you're an adult now, and you're going to make your own decisions. So if you just decide that you hate me, I'm still going to be incredibly proud of the woman that you have become. And I'll even admit that some of that credit goes to your father, but you don't have to share that with him. Colby, I see just how much you love him even when you're angry at him. I would never want to take that away from you or try to separate you two. Because a child should never have to choose between their parents. No, they need them both no matter how old they get. I just hope that someday you choose to share your life with me.
Ryan: Liza was here, and she was very clear about Annie getting access to Emma and the fact that they're going to fight for that.
Erica: Well, Ryan, neither one of those women has a conscience.
Ryan: I just can't let Annie anywhere near her. I can't, because I can't trust Annie right now. And you heard Liza and Adam at the hearing. They're making Annie out to be some sort of misunderstood saint.
Erica: Yeah, well, don't you worry. Look, I'm going to help you. And we are going to prove that Annie is still dangerous. We're going to stop them.
Annie: Hi. I am -- I found this in the bathroom. I hope you don't mind.
Adam: I'm sure it's Erica's.
Annie: Well, it's a little small.
Adam: It's perfect. Perfect. I hope you're hungry.
Annie: I'm starving.
Adam: Oh, good. I think you're probably getting a little tired of prison chow and hospital fare.
Adam: So I had Lucretia make you something very, very special. Whoop.
Annie: Oh, it looks delicious.
Adam: Yes, yes. And, of course, that's only a prelude to this.
Annie: Meat with booties.
Adam: [Laughing] Yeah. Yes, with booties.
Adam: Is it good?
Adam: I'll take that as a yes.
Adam: Yeah, ok, good. Champagne?
Annie: Mm, yes, please.
Adam: Mm, of course.
Annie: I'd love some. Mm, thank you.
Adam: Yes, I'll have a little.
Adam: Ah, here we go.
