[Phone rings]

Natalia: I can't stop thinking about that DVD we found outside Tad's. I mean, why would a burglar be carrying around Hayley Santos's documentary? That's weird.

Brot: It's not weird if you're scoping out all the rich people in Pine Valley. Think about it. That piece was a who's who of this town, right? They discussed their businesses, their families. Some of them were even interviewed in their own homes, which is enough information for any burglar. They didn't need to start from scratch. He already knew which houses to hit.

Natalia: Hmm. We, that does make sense with the wealthy families. All right, you got David Hayward, the Chandlers, but the Martins? I mean, that's a pretty normal house. No fancy jewelry, no servants, no safe. I mean, why would he want to break in there?

Jesse: Maybe they needed some place to hide out. Someplace familiar.

Natalia: What are you thinking?

Jesse: I'm thinking inside job.

Liza: Hey.

Tad: Hey. Hey. I just -- I was making some coffee. You want some?

Liza: No. No, thanks. Is Damon downstairs painting?

Tad: Yeah, last I checked. Why? What's up?

Liza: How did he seem to you? I mean, did he seem -- I don't know -- strange at all?

Tad: You mean stranger than normal? I mean, he was petulant and then bored.

Liza: Hmm.

Tad: That's just pretty much the way I'd act if I had to paint a basement.

Liza: Did you notice that he had a bandage on his hand?

Tad: No. But then again, I wasn't looking for it.

Liza: Yeah. Well, he said he cut it when he slipped on the ice.

Tad: And you think he cut it when he went through the window here last night? Is that it?

Liza: Oh, Tad, what am I going to do?

Tad: What are you going to do? The only thing you can. We are going to talk to Jesse.

Liza: No.

Tad: Yes.

Liza: No, I can't.

Angie: Hi. How are you doing?

Madison: I'm great, actually. I just had another therapy session.

Angie: How do you like Dr. Gallagher?

Madison: Oh, she's amazing. I mean, I still have a lot of work to do, you know. After a life under my father's thumb, and then my husband's, I have to learn how to live for myself for once.

Angie: Yeah. You know what? I just want you to be careful not to push too hard, too fast. I mean, you have so much going on. Your work at Fusion, volunteering at the Miranda Center, your new apartment.

Madison: I know what you're thinking. Can a person really change that much?

Frankie: I thought you said you were working through your lunch break.

Randi: I am working through lunch -- right here.

Frankie: So, what? You're volunteering?

Randi: Well, you always say that they could use some more help, and who knows? Maybe I can make a difference.

Frankie: Oh, of course, you can. Especially you. You've been where a lot of these women are right now. It's going to do them some good to see somebody who's escaped the hard life, who's turned it all around.

Randi: Yeah, well, I just hope I know the right things to say.

Frankie: Well, just be yourself. Be honest. That's all they need. Be honest with me, too, baby.

Randi: What?

Frankie: You're doing this to impress Erica, aren't you?

[Ryan sighs]

Erica: Hi. You're early. How was Cambias?

Ryan: It was good. It was good. Everything that wasn't marked urgent, I just sort of put aside, because we have a deadline to meet.

Erica: For what?

Ryan: For what? To figure out what we're going to be doing on our vacation. Remember? Of course. Now, listen, it's a holiday. It's the only reason I'm doing this, because it books up very, very quickly. They suggested that. And so far, what I booked for you is, I booked you a massage on the beach, which I thought you would like -- nice and relaxing. As far as all the other stuff, I got to figure out what you like. I thought maybe surfing. They probably have some great surf down there. Jet skiing. You can rent jet skis. You got to reserve those in advance as well, maybe some scuba diving or wakeboarding. I don't know -- if that's, like, too high energy, then we can do, you know, horseback riding or something like that. You just got to let me know what you want to do. And as far as restaurants go, apparently, there's more restaurants than nights we're going to be staying down there, so you let me know, and we'll choose what restaurants on what nights. Ok? It's going to be great.

Erica: You're trying too hard.

Physical Therapist: That's right, just a few more reps. Really good, Greenlee. Excellent.

David: What the hell are you doing with this? Do you have any idea what seeing this would do to her?

Greenlee: [Grunts] You know, Kendall and I built that company. Erica had nothing to do with it. How dare she stick herself in front of that camera and crown herself the savior of Fusion?

Physical Therapist: Let's concentrate on the exercises, ok?

Greenlee: You know, how would you like it if you went away for a little while and someone stole something you poured your heart and your soul into? That would --

Greenlee: [Winces] Oh, God --

David: What happened? What is it?

Greenlee: Oh, God, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts. Right here. 

Liza: Ok, what if my instincts are wrong? Right? Look, Damon has already got a record. If I go to the cops with this, he will be the number-one suspect. And then just by getting accused of it, he will probably lose his job, and then how is he going to support Bailey and Stuart?

Tad: Listen, that's not your responsibility, ok? And it's not mine. If he's innocent, he's got nothing to worry about. If he isn't, then he has to answer for what happened here last night.

Liza: Oh, God. You know Bailey will hate me forever.

Tad: Well, that's better than Bailey getting nailed for accessory after the fact. Liza, you got excellent instincts. If you're even remotely suspicious, you can't keep this to yourself. We've got to call Jesse.

Liza: All right. You know what? Just let me talk to Damon first.

Jesse: All right, so Pierre the painter was working alone at the house waiting for his assistant to show up when he was attacked.

Natalia: Right, Damon Miller, who never did.

Brot: Or did he?

Jesse: Exactly. We pulled him in here last week on an assault charge. Now he's a no-show at work and his new boss ends up with a concussion?.

Natalia: He did have access to at least two of the crime scenes.

Jesse: That's good enough to make him a suspect for me.

Randi: I've come to do something good and you accuse me of trying to suck up to Erica?

Frankie: That's not what I said. I don't doubt that you're here to help out for all the right reasons, but I know you got a raw deal at work. Madison being hired as Erica's second assistant wasn't what you had in mind when you agreed to bring her on board. I only bring this up because I don't want this to turn into some type of competition between you two.

Randi: Don't worry about Madison and me. It's not like Madison's running around rubbing her job in my face. You know what? She's actually -- she's gone out of her way to give me credit for an idea that she came up with. An idea that Erica loves.

Frankie: She probably feels guilty knowing that you deserve the job.

Randi: A few months ago, I would have jumped to conclusions wondering -- I don't know -- what Madison was up to. But she's trying to get her life back together. And I know what that's like.

Frankie: Hey, but still, it can't be easy for you.

Randi: No.

Frankie: Not after what she did to us.

Randi: You're right, it's hard. But you know what? She's trying to undo the things that she's done. I've at least got to give her a chance.

Angie: Actually, I know for a fact someone can change that much. I'm looking at her.

Madison: For the first time in my life, I am not afraid anymore. I can't wait to get up in the morning and go to work, volunteer at the center. I really want to get back -- try to make up for all the pain that I caused.

Angie: Madison, you were in pain, too -- just as much as any of those women at the Miranda Center.

Madison: Yes, but past tense. That's one of the first things that Dr. Gallagher helped me understand -- that I can't fall back on that -- letting it excuse my behavior. I have to take responsibility, or I could spend the rest of my life as a victim. That's no way to live.

Ryan: Yeah, I'm working a little hard right now. Sort of in overdrive for the moment, but you know, once we get down there on vacation, believe me, I'll be able to sort of kick back and relax, I promise.

Erica: Ryan, I told you I'd go away with you for a few days, but it sounds to me like you've got us so booked up that we aren't going to have any time just to be together. Maybe we won't even be able to remember what day it is.

Ryan: And you think I'm looking for another way to get my mind off of -- the fact that it's Valentine's Day -- Greenlee?

Erica: You've been very open about how you feel. But I think maybe you're going over -- maybe. Just going overboard a little bit. Look, I think the idea of escaping to a tropical island with you -- I think that's wonderful. If you want to go horseback riding, you want to go parasailing, I'm going to saddle up, I'm going to fly right beside you. But I don't need any of that to have fun. I just need you.

David: If you hurt her recovery in any way --

Greenlee: Look, it's ok, David. It's ok. I'm ok.

David: That scream you let out didn't sound like you were ok.

Greenlee: Yeah, I'm just out of shape. I haven't worked out in a year. It's bound to hurt. Though not as much as the thought of Erica running my company. I mean, I tried not to let it get to me, but my God, what was Kendall thinking? Anything Erica touches ends up being all about her. She's going to bring Fusion to its knees.

David: [Sighs] I thought you wanted to walk back into Ryan's life.

Greenlee: Of course, I do. Why do you think I'm putting myself through all this torture?

David: All the therapy in the world isn't going to make a difference if you're not doing it right. Which means 100% concentration and no stress. That's why I didn't want to have the TV in the room. You hear about one little thing and you obsess over it until it consumes you.

Greenlee: That's not true.

David: Oh, really? You're so freaked out about Erica, you're not focused on your therapy, Greenlee. Forget Valentine's Day. You keep this up, you may never walk out of here.

Frankie: Which brings us back to the front desk.

Madison: Hey, you two.

Randi: Hey.

Madison: Nice surprise. You here to help out?

Randi: Yup. Whatever I can do. Frankie was just giving me the insider's tour.

Madison: Impressive place, isn't it?

Randi: Very.

Frankie: I got to get back to work.

Randi: Ok, go.

Frankie: See you at home?

Randi: Mm-hmm.

Frankie: I got it.

Randi: Oh -- so, tell me where I can start. Cooking? Kitchen? Housekeeping?

Madison: Oh, these women need a lot more than a warm meal and clean sheets. Mostly what they need is someone to talk to.

Randi: Uh, yeah -- I don't think I'm exactly qualified to be giving out advice.

Madison: Well, neither am I. There are plenty of professionals. Mostly what you need to do is just listen.

Randi: Hmm.

Madison: That was Linda. She just came in last night. Why don't you go and introduce yourself?

Randi: Hi, Linda. I'm Randi. Do you mind if I sit down?

Liza: Hey, Damon. Got a minute?

Damon: If you're going to give me a lecture about Bailey and Stuart, please save it, ok? I know my responsibilities. You think I'd be working like this if I didn't?

Liza: No, no, I see that you are -- you're very committed here. I just got to ask, you -- how exactly did you get that cut on your hand?

Damon: I told you, I slipped on the ice.

Liza: Must have been a pretty hard fall, right?

Damon: Or a sharp piece of ice. What is this?

Liza: Well, somebody broke into this house last night and -- whoever did it cut themselves on a piece of glass.

Damon: Oh. And I have a cut on my hand, so it must be me?

Liza: I didn't say that.

Damon: You didn't have to. Damn. Didn't take you long to jump on it. You have been wanting me out of Bailey and Stuart's life since I showed up here. So is this your -- your big way of getting rid of me for good?

Jesse: Hey.

Tad: What's up? You following up on yesterday?

Jesse: Yeah, just a few more questions.

Tad: Ok, I'll -- I'll go get Opal.

Jesse: No, wait. Tad, I need to talk to you.

Tad: Me?

Jesse: You.

Tad: Damn, you're good. Ok, I admit it. I did it. And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddlesome kids and their dog.

Jesse: It's about your painter's assistant.

Tad: Damon?

Jesse: So what can you tell me about this guy?

Tad: Just that -- I don't know -- he's the biological father of the baby that Liza tried to adopt, and that she got him a job with Pierre.

Jesse: You do know that he attacked one of his coworkers from his last job?

Tad: Yeah, I heard about it.

Jesse: So, you trust this guy? In your house, around your kids?

Tad: I don't know. I kind of thought I was doing Liza solid. So, you know, why don't we just cut to the chase? What are you saying? You consider this guy a suspect?

Jesse: Not if his alibi checks out. But is there anything you think I might need to know about this guy?

Tad: Yeah, he's got a bandage on his hand.

Liza: Damon, wait.

Jesse: Damon Miller -- you mind coming with me down to the station? I've got a few questions I'd like to ask.

Damon: Are you kidding me?

Liza: Ok, he's not going anywhere without his attorney.

Jesse: Fine. Come right along, attorney.

Tad: Listen to me, ok? Just give me a second. Look, it's not -- it is not the way it looks.

Liza: I don't have any time for excuses right now. Damon needs my help. 

Linda: Thank you.

Randi: You're welcome.

Randi: [Sighs] Thanks.

Madison: You ok?

Randi: Yeah. It just -- it wasn't so long ago that I was stuck exactly the same place that she is. You know? Just -- living a life that was a dead end, praying for a way out that I was sure wasn't going to come.

Madison: I know. It's always easier to start over when you have someone to help you. You had Frankie. Maybe that woman has you.

Randi: Anyway, I should -- I should get back to Fusion. I've got an intern manning the phones and -- well, not that Erica would notice I was gone, anyway.

Madison: Well, if you want Erica to notice you, just don't be afraid speak up.

Randi: Yeah, I don't think that Erica's really concerned with anything that I have to say.

Madison: Ok, now you're sounding like that woman that you said you used to be. The one who no one cared about. But you and I both know that's not who you are anymore. You just listened to everything that Linda had to say. Now it's your turn. Go back to Fusion and make yourself heard.

Val: And the thought is to have a slogan, like, "You don't have to be a model to look like one. Fusion -- release your inner beauty." Or maybe not.

Erica: Val -- Val, we are trying to raise money for battered women. We're trying to give them hope, some piece of mind, not make them feel like they're not as beautiful outside as they are inside.

Val: Oh. You're right. The -- yeah, the slogan doesn't really cut it.

Erica: Well, actually, it's not just the slogan, Val, it's the whole thing. I mean, take this back down to Marketing. They have to rethink this whole thing, 'cause this is not working.

Val: You got it.

Erica: Ok.

Erica: [Sighs] So, here's an excellent reason why we need to take a vacation.

[Ryan chuckles]

Jesse: Your boss took a pretty nasty blow to the head yesterday.

Damon: Yeah, I heard.

Jesse: You heard? You know, you might have been able to prevent that had you shown up on time, or even at all. So, where were you?

Damon: I got sidetracked. This new band was playing at Diego's Bar. I lost track of time listening to them.

Jesse: "Diego's Bar"? Anybody see you at Diego's Bar?

Damon: I don't know, man. I was into the music.

Jesse: [Chuckles] Not a very strong alibi, is it?

Damon: Well, I didn't realize I was going to need one. Are you accusing me of something?

Jesse: Just trying to get the facts, find out where everybody was.

Damon: Like I said, I was at Diego's Bar. Can I get out of here now?

Jesse: Nope.

Damon: I've already told you everything I know.

Liza: All right, that's enough questioning without a lawyer present.

Jesse: He has waived his right. And refused your services.

Liza: Well, you've questioned him enough. You going to book him, or are you going to let him go?

Jesse: Fine. You're free to go -- for now. Wait a minute. Your paint on your shoes matches the paint that Pierre was working with at the house the night he was attacked.

Damon: Well, it's Pierre's favorite color. He has me mix a ton of it.

Liza: Come on, Jesse. Really, you think if he was guilty, he wouldn't have cleaned off his shoes?

Jesse: Come on, Liza. You and I both know that criminals are usually as dumb as a sack of hammers. That's why they usually get caught.

Dr. Clayton: The M.R.I. didn't show any damage. Looks to be just a muscle strain. We'll get you on an anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxer. You need to go easy on the P.T. for a day or two.

Greenlee: Uh-huh -- meaning I'm t just out of shape and pulled a muscle. Did you really have to bring Dr. Clayton in here to tell me what I already told you?

David: I wasn't taking any chances, Greenlee.

Dr. Clayton: Look, just take it easy, ok? That pain killer I gave you should be kicking in too soon. I'll see you tomorrow.

Greenlee: Ahem.

David: All right. What kind of setback is this?

Dr. Clayton: Well, it's nothing serious. She's healing well, but she needs to stay focused on her therapy. And I'm sensing some frustration in her. That's not good.

David: Trust me, this has nothing to do with her recuperation, and everything to do with a certain diva back home. Thanks for coming so fast.

Dr. Clayton: Yeah.

David: Huh.

[Door opens]

Greenlee: Waste of his time.

David: Yeah, waste of his time. He just confirmed my diagnosis. You need an Erica-ectomy. You need to get her out of your head, Greenlee.

Greenlee: I need to get her out of my life. It just doesn't make any sense. Kendall is perfectly capable of running Fusion on her own. She doesn't need that egotistical -- unless, unless, unless she and Zach are having another baby. Is that it? I mean, three kids is a lot to handle. I mean, maybe she asked Erica to help her out.

David: That's not what's happening.

Greenlee: You can't convince me that she just snap-decided to make Erica partner.

David: You know something? Whatever's going on down there, you worrying about it can't control it, all right? So why don't you think about something that you can control, like your therapy? All right? And being able to walk again.

Greenlee: Ok. You're right. Erica can wait. All that matters is getting back to Ryan.

Angie: Hey.

Frankie: Hmm. Need a hand with those?

Angie: I thought you were at the center today.

Frankie: I was. Pulled an early shift. Knew you were short-handed here, though, so here I am.

Angie: Well, thank you, baby. Oh, I'm still trying to decipher the mess that David left me. You know, I have to backtrack on a lot of these cases by hand, unless I want to plumb the depths of the evil Christmas gift that he gave me.

Frankie: Well, it's smart of you not to dig too deeply into those files of his.

Angie: Oh, I saw Madison this morning. Has Randi said anything about how things at Fusion are going?

Frankie: Well, between the two of them, they're getting along a lot better than I expected. Randi even started volunteering at the Miranda Center with her.

Angie: Oh. Sounds like they're both throwing themselves into work.

Frankie: Yes, and they're not the only ones. You've been here around the clock, too. Natalia says Dad has been doing the same thing. Everything all right with you two?

Angie: Of course. It's just that we both have demanding jobs, and neither one of them allows for much free time.

Frankie: Listen, I know you've been having a hard time with how you got David's job and all of that, so just --

Angie: You know, what I -- yeah, what I'm having a hard time with is how I got David's job, which is largely due to your father and --

Frankie: Ok. All right, so why don't you make time, smooth it out? That's what you're always telling me.

Angie: I'm the mom. I dispense with the advice, remember?

Frankie: Ok. And part of that advice has always been nothing comes before family.

Angie: Yes, sweetheart, that's true, but you know, it's different when your children are grown. I mean, we can focus on ourselves a little more, and that's what we're doing.

Frankie: No, you're focusing on work. Do you even remember the last time you and Dad sat down and had dinner? Went out on a date?

Angie: It hasn't been that long. All right, maybe -- maybe it has, but, you know, I don't know -- these days, everything just seems to sort of blur together, and I -- I really am feeling in a -- in a strange place right now.

Frankie: Ok, so why don't you take off? I'll take these. You go home, spend some time with Dad. You know, if you keep burning the candle at both ends, before you know it, you're going to be out of candle.

Jesse: All right, anything on that belt you found in Colby's stolen car?

Brot: Not yet. Got the list of distributors from all the manufacturers, but it's a common item. It's going to take a while before we get the list of all the retailers.

Jesse: Cool. Well, stay on it.

Brot: All right.

Jesse: Anything back from the lab on the blood yet?

Natalia: Well, the type matches that on the belt, the glass at Tad's, and at Wildwind. Now, the D.N.A. is going to take a little longer to come through, but it' s looking like we can match the blood to all three crime scenes.

Jesse: Now all we got to do is tie it to a suspect.

Natalia: Now, what about Damon Miller?

Jesse: Not enough to hold him on. I'm going to go over to Diego's now, follow up. See if the staffers -- see if anybody saw him there.

Natalia: No, wait, you know what? I'll go. Why don't you just go home, ok? I'll work on it, and I'll call you if I get any information.

Jesse: You trying to get rid of me?

Natalia: No, I just want to give Angie a crack at you. Come on.

Jesse: Well, that's very sweet of you, but Angela is just as busy as I am.

Natalia: I heard from a little bird that she's going to be home early for a change.

Jesse: A little bird?

Natalia: Mm-hmm.

Jesse: Little bird with a name like Frankie?

[Natalia laughs]

Natalia: Come on, go spend some time with wifey.

Jesse: All right, all right. You win. Just call me if anything comes across this --

Natalia: Ok, go, go.

Jesse: I'm -- I'm --

Natalia: Now go. All right. This is how we go.

David: How are you feeling?

Greenlee: Better. Mac pain pills.

David: Mm-hmm.

Greenlee: I'm glad you decided not to abandon me.

David: Doesn't mean I'm going back to Pine Valley with you.

Greenlee: Well, I am ready for more therapy.

David: Oh, wait. Ok, why don't we take it easy for today, all right? You can start first thing in the morning, but for now, I want you to just relax.

Greenlee: I've never really been good at that. I've always been happiest when I'm in the middle of chaos. You know that. That's why love Fusion so much. You know, there's always a fire to put out, a success to celebrate, a new line to launch. That place is my baby, David.

David: I know. But would it really be so bad if things were working out for Erica at Fusion? As long as the company's doing well, right? Still successful?

Greenlee: I'd rather Kendall burn that place to the ground than give any part of something I love to Erica Kane.

Val: Ok. So, off your inner beauty comment, this is what we came up with. A woman lies on a beach. Peaceful, serene, nothing but the sound of the waves. She smiles, happy, full of life. The caption comes up: "Fusion -- find your inner peace." That more of what you were looking for?

Erica: So, wearing our makeup is supposed to give women hope of taking a vacation?

Val: Well, who doesn't dream of escaping from all the stress and angst and insanity of their job? Um, besides me, of course. I mean, every day here is like a weekend in Cabo.

Erica: So, wearing our makeup is like a vacation at the beach? Where'd you get that idea?

Val: Uh, from you, to tell the truth. Yeah, I saw the travel brochures on your desk, and I thought it would make a good pitch, but I guess I was wrong. Are you going on vacation?

Erica: Not if we can't pull this campaign out of the garbage, Val. No, back to the drawing board.

Val: Well, you want to give me a few hints as to what you're looking for?

Erica: Something -- real.

Randi: So why not use real women? No models, no flawless beauties, just real, honest-to-goodness women. Maybe even some of the women that the Miranda Center helped out? And this way, we could show the consumer exactly who we're trying to help with the product line.

Ryan: I think that's a really good idea.

Erica: And so do I. That's a really good idea. You're on a roll these days, Randi.

[Phone rings]

Jesse: Just a second. My wife is calling.

Angie: What are you doing home so early?

Jesse: I thought that for a change, I would cook dinner for you.

Angie: Well, how did you manage to get -- how did you manage the afternoon off?

Jesse: My daughter the cop. She suggested I spend more time with my wife.

Angie: I think there's a conspiracy.

Jesse: Frankie?

Angie: Mm-hmm.

Jesse: You know something? Maybe -- maybe they have a point. I mean, we really haven't been able to spend much time with each other since -- you took over as chief of staff.

Angie: Wait a minute. Hold up. I am not the only chief who hasn't had time on their hands. I mean, you were working late every night.

Jesse: Yeah, tell me about it. The string of burglaries in the area. I'm working my ass off trying to catch this guy.

Angie: Well, I'm trying to make sense of the mess David left behind. You know, I swear, I think he's tried to rig the place so it would implode unless he was there to pull his sneaky strings. [Sighs] You know what? Let's face it. We both have demanding, high-pressure jobs, Jesse.

Jesse: It's never been this tough before, though. Maybe it's time we took a fresh look at the decisions we've made.

Angie: What -- what are you thinking? That maybe we're in over our heads?

Jesse: Maybe.

Angie: So -- what? I mean, if we're going to spend more time together, maybe one of us needs to think about stepping down?

Jesse: I don't know. Maybe.

Angie: Huh. Well, I don't hear you volunteering.

Jesse: Oh, baby, no, I'm not suggesting you -- I miss you. I just miss you, baby, that's all.

Angie: I know. I miss you, too. And I am not going to waste this rare time we have together arguing over whose job is more important. Because I would rather have a quiet dinner with my husband. I would rather have those nice, sexy lips all over me.

Jesse: Yeah, who needs dinner? I ate yesterday.

[Phone rings]

Bailey: What happened? Why did he go to the police station?

Liza: Listen, all they did was question him about the break-ins, but they had to let him go because they had nothing.

Bailey: Well, where is he now?

Liza: I don't know. I don't know. He got really upset and he took off, but I'm sure once he calms down, Bailey, he'll call.

Bailey: Why were they even questioning him in the first place?

Liza: Because they were suspicious about the cut on his hand. And the fact that he worked for the guy that was assaulted. And it's all circumstantial. It all means nothing.

Bailey: This isn't fair. [Sighs]

Liza: Bailey --

Bailey: I have to go and find him.

Liza: Bailey --

[Door closes]

Liza: Yeah. Thanks a lot.

Natalia: Hey, what are you doing back here? I thought we had a deal. I'd call if something came up.

Jesse: Don't blame me. Something came up for Angela.

Natalia: Damn it. Frankie dropped the ball.

Jesse: Ha, ha. So there was a little conspiracy here?

Natalia: Maybe.

Jesse: Frankie play a little part in it? Look, Angela got called away. That's all. Soon as we wrap this case up, there's going to be plenty of time for dinners, all right? Now, what did you find out at Diego's?

Natalia: Well, I was actually on my way over there. They're just opening up now.

Jesse: I'll go. Free evening.

Frankie: What? I told them not to call you.

Angie: Look, I'm here now. What's going on?

Frankie: Bus crash. Multiple victims. They're on their way in now.

Frankie: Wait a minute -- and you weren't going to tell me?

Frankie: We got a staff in the E.R. fully capable. Come on, we can handle this. Go home and have dinner with dad.

Angie: Frankie, listen, what you did was sweet, but unnecessary. Now, your dad and I are fine, but the people who are on that bus -- that's another story. Let's get to work, Doctor.


Liza: I asked you, let me handle this. But could you do it? No. No, you couldn't do it. You just had to stick your nose right into it. You had to pick up the phone. You had to call Jesse, and then Bailey?

Tad: Would you spare me the righteous indignation, ok? I didn't do any such thing. I didn't call anybody. I didn't call Jesse, I didn't call Bailey. They came to me. Both of them. They had questions, legitimate questions.

Liza: Right, and you were just so willing to answer them? I really thought I could trust you, Tad. I never should have come here, huh?

Erica: Why don't we start with the staff and the volunteers at the center and see if any of them are interested in sharing their stories for a good cause? Randi --

Randi: Yes?

Erica: Really good job today.

Randi: Thank you.

Madison: That wasn't so hard, was it?

Randi: No, it wasn't. And I guess I should have spoken up before. I also should have told Erica that the charity line was your idea. You do deserve some credit around here, too.

Madison: I don't need Erica to single me out. The work that we're doing at the center gives me more than enough satisfaction.

Ryan: I love it when you get passionate about something. Your whole face lights up.

Erica: Well, it's very hard not to be passionate about this. I mean, I've been looking for a way to give back. Ryan, when we get this all in place, I really want to unveil this whole thing to the media. I want to show them what Fusion is really all about.

Greenlee: And I'm proud to announce, though it took a lot of hard work, that I've finally been able to undo the damage done to Fusion by Erica Kane.

Reporter: Well, what was the secret? How were you able to pull it off so fast?

Greenlee: Huh. No secret. Just the support of my loving husband.

[Ryan chuckles]

Gayle: What do you think she's dreaming about?

David: What she's always dreaming about. Going home to Ryan.

Gayle: What happens when she finds out the truth?

David: What, that Ryan's not waiting for her? That he moved on with Erica, of all people? I think it's going to break her heart.

Gayle: She's going to have to find out sometime. You can't keep her here forever.

David: No, you're right about that. But I can tell her as gently as possible when the time is right.

Gayle: You think she's going to fall apart?

David: Yes, I do. But I guess I'll be there to pick up the pieces. I've done it before. I can do it again.
