Adam: Aha! My beautiful wife.
Annie: Hi! I am just sitting here enjoying our beautiful new parlor. Didn't we do an amazing job?
Adam: Oh, yes, yes. Yeah.
Adam: Ah. Huh. J.R., shouldn't you be on your way over here?
J.R.: Listen, Little Adam gave me his cold, so I'm not gonna be able to help out with the audit for a few days.
Adam: Well, happily, we have someone who can pitch in for you while you're convalescing.
Colby: Who's Dad talking to?
Annie: J.R. I guess he's not feeling well.
Adam: Get some rest. Well, looks like you're going to be doing more than correlating quarterlies.
Annie: Well, let the fun begin.
Annie: Oh. I'll be back.
Colby: So J.R.'s sick?
Adam: He sounded half dead.
Colby: Ok, you know, don't even joke.
Ryan: Ok, have fun up there, Ems.
Annie: Why did you drop Emma off early?
Ryan: Because I need a favor.
Erica: Val, excellent job getting the phone systems back up and running. However, those I.T. specialists of ours? They have yet to be able to retrieve the files.
Madison: Maybe we should get a hacker, one with experience programming worms to debug the system?
Randi: You want to hire a criminal?
Madison: A reformed criminal.
Erica: I think it's a great idea. Let's get Fusion back on track. Val, you coordinate with Madison to find a "reformed hacker." And hold my calls, will you? No matter what, no matter who, do not disturb. I'll be in my office.
Val: Ok, it's your idea. Where do you want to start?
Erica: Kendall, it's me.
Kendall: Mom, is everything ok? You sound serious. Is Fusion up and running?
Erica: Fusion's under control, but there's something else you and I need to deal with -- Ryan.
Kendall: Mom, I told you. I didn't have a problem with you and Ryan seeing each other.
Erica: I know what you said. Now I want the truth.
David: My fiancée won't be joining us for this meeting. I hope that won't be a problem.
Woman: It's a first for me. Planning these events almost always falls on the bride.
David: Well, it's kind of a surprise for Valentine's Day.
Woman: How romantic.
David: Now, this wedding has to be one that no one will want to miss.
Erica: Ryan and me as a couple: I want your honest, emotional response. Kendall, are you still there?
Kendall: All right. Ok. You want honesty? Ok, I'll be honest. I find it incredibly weird and uncomfortable and wrong, just wrong on every level. It's just wrong, ok, Mom? I wish you had never gotten involved with Ryan.
Erica: It's certainly honest.
Kendall: Just wait a second. I'm not done. Despite all of that, I can't judge you for your relationship with Ryan. Because, after all, I was with Ethan before I married Zach. So I can't say that what you're doing with Ryan is wrong. But I do have to say this, and you don't have to answer me. Mom, Ryan is an incredible man. But deep down, do you really think he's the man you're meant to be with? Ok, Mom, now I really do have to go. Zach chartered a private yacht, so we can spend some quality time alone with Spike and Ian for a while. We need a complete break, so we will be out of contact for a long time.
Erica: I understand.
Kendall: You're the only one with our satellite phone information, so can you please only call if it's a real emergency?
Erica: All right. Well, you take care and kiss those boys, give the boys my love.
Kendall: I will. I love you, Mom.
Erica: I love you, too, honey.
Colby: How can you be so mean? Dad, J.R. is sick.
Adam: How can you be so dramatic? He has a cold, not yellow fever.
Colby: And not cancer?
Adam: You know, huh? Well, he's in remission, thank God.
Colby: Yes, but it could come back.
Adam: No, it won't.
Colby: But if it does, what are you gonna do?
Adam: I will do everything in my power to make him well again.
Colby: Well, it's not that easy.
Adam: If J.R. gets sick, I'll just have to rethink a whole lot of things.
Ryan: Look, if this is a problem for you, I'm sure Emma would love a sleepover at Kathy's house.
Annie: Oh, no, no. I want Emma right here with me. It's just -- you and Erica, really?
Ryan: What, Annie? Why is it so hard for you to imagine Erica and I together?
Annie: Well, it's just that you're Spike's dad, and Erica --
Ryan: Stop. Stop.
Annie: Is it for the press, Ryan? I mean, anything for free publicity for the Miranda line, right?
Ryan: Wow. Ok, this conversation is over.
Annie: I was married to you once, remember? I know you a lot better than you think.
Ryan: Just tell Emma I will call her later.
Scott: Hey. Looks like you and Ryan almost had an understanding.
Annie: Ryan's delusional. There's no way he can make this relationship with Erica work any more than he could make our marriage work. No. The only woman Ryan has ever fully given his heart to is the woman who drove me straight to the rubber room.
David: Now, there's a small chapel on the property. It's the perfect setting for an intimate gathering with friends and family. I want to make sure that the place is filled with candles, ok?
Woman: Have you thought about flowers?
David: Red roses will be fine.
Woman: Popular choice. Let me show you some of our floral designs featuring roses.
[David's phone rings -- it's a text message from Greenlee who's hiding behind a curtain]
David: Ok. You know, on second thought, why don't we go with white sweet peas?
Woman: Wonderful. These -- oh, these sprays look delightful in candlelight.
David: You know, I like that one right there.
David: Excuse me. It's one of my more needy patients.
Woman: Brides can be equally demanding.
David: If you only knew. Do you happen to have any photos of petals on the aisle? Ok, that's perfect.
Woman: And the bouquet?
David: Yeah, I was thinking something elegant and understated.
Woman: And now about the invitations --
David: Oh, no need. Those have already gone out.
Marissa: You still feeling like crud?
J.R.: This round of chemo's really kicking my ass. But I'll be all right just as long as I have some beautiful inspiration: Like you in those running shoes.
J.R.: Is that an early Valentine?
Marissa: Yeah, from a secret admirer.
J.R.: Well, don't look at me. I would've done a lot better than a card.
Marissa: Ohh. Wow, I shouldn't have opened it.
J.R.: Why? What is it?
Marissa: It's a wedding invitation. David is getting married.
J.R.: What? You got to be kidding me. Who'd he drug this time?
Marissa: I have no idea.
Randi: Actually, the computer systems are being handled right now. I'm sorry. Can you hold, please? Fusion. No, Erica Kane personally guarantees that each order is going to be filled. Yes. Yes. Uh-huh.
Madison: Can I help you?
Man: Delivery for Erica Kane.
Opal: I hightailed it over here just as quick as I could. What's wrong, hon?
Erica: I have to break up with Ryan.
Brot: I thought the cybercrime unit was handling this case.
Natalia: We were the first cops on the scene. Why would we want to hand it off?
Brot: Because they're trained in computers. That's why.
Natalia: Why don't you go on a doughnut run, cadet. That's an order.
Brot: Let me show you something about teamwork.
Natalia: Hey, I can handle it myself!
Brot: Ha ha ha. What's this, the diary of your life, things you want to do?
Natalia: Give me that.
Brot: Hold on. Hold it.
Brot: "Cadet Monroe has shown remarkable improve -- "
Natalia: All right, that's enough.
Natalia: "Training session. Cadet Monroe needed to be schooled."
Opal: Now, just hold on a minute, honey. You and Ryan got something special. Why would you want to pull the plug on it?
Erica: Ryan wants to whisk me away for a romantic getaway.
Opal: That makes him a keeper in my book.
Erica: Last night I stared at an empty suitcase for three hours. I couldn't even pack a single pair of shoes. That's when I started thinking, why am I with Ryan? Where are we going? Do we have what it takes to last?
Opal: Have you heard of that expression "live in the moment," especially when you're being offered moments like this?
Erica: Opal, that's what I've been doing, and it doesn't work for me. Last summer Ryan took me sailing at the marina. I was up to my eyeballs with work, I was worried about Kendall, and Ryan offered me the perfect escape. And it was one of the most wonderful days I've had in a very long time, but that's what our relationship has been, opal. Ryan has been my escape.
Opal: Yeah, but is that a bad thing? I mean, we all need a break now and then.
Erica: But when escapism becomes a way of life, well, then it's avoidance, and I can't do this anymore, Opal. Not to Ryan, and not to me.
Colby: So I hope this means you won't be forcing J.R. to stick to your whole merit trust conditions.
Adam: These clauses have been put in place to protect my family, not harm them.
Colby: Finally, you are starting to make some sense. Dad, J.R. and Little A shouldn't lose the inheritance just because J.R. is physically unable to meet your demands. No one should.
Adam: I'm impressed. You've concocted this unlikely situation where J.R. gets sick again to illustrate your perceived flaws in the trust. Or would you rather just have me eliminate the damn trust entirely?
Colby: Oh, God, Dad. You know, not everything is a manipulation, ok? I am not playing you!
Annie: Am I interrupting something?
Colby: No. No, no. We're done.
Annie: What was that about?
Marissa: I'm so sick of his crap. You know, all this bull about how he wants to be a real family and how he's sorry for everything he's done, and then he pulls this: A wedding with some mystery bride.
J.R.: Wonder where he dug her up.
Marissa: I don't know. Probably in his lab. You know what? I'm not gonna let him do this to me again.
J.R.: Well, then forget that you even saw the stupid invitation.
Marissa: No. No. I'm gonna go over to Wildwind right now and tell him exactly how I feel.
J.R.: No, don't. Ignore him. Whatever game that David's playing, you don't want to know.
David: All right, come on out, my demanding bride.
Greenlee: Ugh. Red roses. I already had the tacky Vegas wedding.
David: All right, fine. But what's wrong with a spray? You didn't even see the picture.
Greenlee: Sprays equal funerals, and I'm coming back from the dead.
David: Trust me, no one's gonna care about flowers once you lift your veil. Ryan's gonna be crushed when he sees you're my bride no matter what bouquet you're carrying.
Greenlee: Payback is a bitch.
Colby: For you, fresh from the stove of Supersteins.
J.R.: Heard I wasn't feeling well?
Colby: Well, it's chicken and rice soup, nature's remedy.
J.R.: Can it cure cancer?
Colby: Ok, you need to tell Dad you're out of remission.
J.R.: No. No way.
Colby: Why not?
J.R.: Because I refuse to die. I got in remission once, I'll get in there again.
Colby: Ok, well, if you need anything, I will be there.
J.R.: Listen, I'm gonna be around to babysit your grandkids. You got it?
Colby: Ok. Whatever you say.
J.R.: Good. So what is this urgency to tell Adam?
Colby: Well, if Dad knew the cancer returned, maybe he would take a second look at his own life.
J.R.: Starting with his marriage to Annie?
Adam: Annie, how do you feel about the merit trust? Honestly? Did I make a mistake?
Annie: Um, well, you saw how I initially reacted to it. I was hurt. I was upset. I was angry. I thought you were trying to punish me.
Adam: Oh, I'd never do that.
Annie: I know that now. You were just looking out for me, and I love you for it.
Adam: I want my family to be safe after -- well, when I can no longer be here.
Annie: Well, Colby and J.R. should understand that.
Adam: And I want Colby to have the finest, unconditional love from someone who can protect her after I'm gone.
Annie: She'll come around.
Adam: And J.R.? God, I miss J.R. I wish we were closer.
Annie: It'll happen.
Adam: I have this feeling that I'm losing everyone who really matters to me.
Annie: No, no, no, no. You'll never, ever lose me.
Adam: Yeah. I have to do something.
Annie: Oh, you want me to go with you?
Adam: No, no, no. You and Scott have work to do.
Annie: Ok. Well, let me know if you need anything, ok?
Adam: Yeah, I'll let you know.
Erica: Ryan and I have always been wonderful friends, caring, supportive, but we were never meant for happily ever after.
Opal: Well, that's horse-hockey. Great romances start with great friendships.
Erica: Not true with Ryan and me. Here. See this? Now, you look at this picture. There. What do you see?
Opal: Well, I see two gorgeous people with a boatload of chemistry.
Erica: Opal, look at our smiles: They're forced.
Opal: Well, so? Ryan ain't used to being around loads of camera flashing bulbs. That's all right.
Erica: Well, we're just wrong for each other, ok? Why don't you just admit it?
Opal: This thing is in French. Where the heck did you get this, anyway?
Erica: I don't remember.
Opal: Oh, don't give me that. I know you better. You hate the tabloids. Now, come on. Fess up.
Erica: Someone sent it to me.
Opal: Jackson Montgomery?
Erica: Yes, Jackson Montgomery.
Opal: You saw Jack yesterday? Before these Ryan doubts started churning.
Erica: Opal, this is about Ryan and me, not Jack and me.
Opal: Mm-hmm. Jack is staking another claim on your heart, isn't he?
Erica: No, that's not what happened.
Opal: Oh, really?
Erica: Jack opened my eyes to the truth.
Ryan: Ms. Kane and I should be arriving at the airport in, I don't know, about a couple hours, I think. Fantastic. Then we will be leaving as soon as you guys are ready. Thanks.
Greenlee: Everything's been delivered.
David: As instructed.
Greenlee: No backing out now.
David: Well, that's not true. If you want out, we can make it happen. Great thing about being me, no rules apply.
Greenlee: No, I'm done hiding. I'm reclaiming my life and Fusion.
David: The new Mrs. David Hayward, feisty as ever.
[Knock on door]
David: May be our first RSVP.
David: Marissa. What a wonderful surprise.
Marissa: Is this wedding thing a ploy to lure me here?
David: You got my invitation?
Marissa: Yeah, well, apparently, that's the only way that you can communicate with me.
David: You were so upset at the hospital, I wasn't sure if I should call.
Marissa: Yeah, or drop by and tell me what's going on. I'm your daughter, your only child, and this is how you tell me that you're getting married? You should not pull this junk on me! Would you do this to Babe?
David: I'm back here for you, Marissa, so we can try to have a real father-daughter relationship.
Marissa: You're back for revenge.
David: I did come back for revenge.
Marissa: Well, finally you're telling the truth. Coming back has nothing to do with us building a relationship.
David: No, it has everything to do with you. More than anything, Marissa, I want you in my life. It's just really complicated right now.
Marissa: Another excuse not to be honest.
David: All right, look, I know I made plenty of mistakes --
Marissa: No kidding.
David: But so have half of the other people in this town. Why am I the only one being crucified for them? Look at Jake. Where was the public outcry when he told me my son was dead?
Marissa: He is not your son.
David: But we didn't know that at the time. All I ever wanted was a family, and I had that with Trevor and Amanda.
Marissa: I'm your family. Me. What you had with Trevor and Amanda was a big freaking lie.
David: Ok, but, you see, the problem is you can't understand, because you grew up in a home with loving parents, the same parents. You know, Sunday dinners and bedtime stories.
Marissa: What? How many times have I reached out to you? How many times have you chosen revenge over me?
David: You see the difference right now? My happiness will be my best revenge this time.
Marissa: Oh, yeah. With the help of your mystery bride?
David: This marriage helps me stay in town.
Marissa: And gives you the family that you've always wanted?
David: It gives me hope that maybe someday I can be a real father for you.
Marissa: My real father is dead.
Colby: If Dad knew the cancer returned, he would pick you over Annie.
J.R.: Wrong. We've already tried that, Annie or us, and we saw how that worked out.
Colby: That was different, though, J.R. You told Dad you were in remission.
J.R.: I've already used my cancer once to manipulate him. I'm not gonna do it again.
Colby: Ok, but if we can just get Annie --
J.R.: Look, he's made his decision, Colby. You have to accept it.
Colby: J.R., I know you love Dad. Please, just tell him you're sick, and we can get that psycho bitch out of our lives and that stupid will.
J.R.: Colby, if there's anything that I've learned these past few months, it's to not waste time on needless drama. Now, if you want to roll around in the mud, that's your choice. But I won't help you.
Madison: Oh, no.
Madison: I forgot to give this to Erica. She's gonna kill me.
Val: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Probably another marriage proposal. Add it to the pile. Sort through it later.
Erica: Ryan and I have both been using this relationship to hide. Jack and Kendall both asked me the same thing: Is Ryan the one? Is he my future?
Opal: And the answer is no?
Erica: In the present, it's been amazing. But in the future, no. Jack made me realize that I will never find my soul mate as long as I'm with Ryan.
Opal: So maybe Jack is your forever man.
Erica: That's not what I'm saying. It's not even what I'm talking about. What I'm saying is that I just need to end things with Ryan for both our sakes.
Opal: Well, how do you think Ryan is gonna go for that?
Erica: Ryan was building his life around Greenlee. Their love was much more than an escape. Ryan needs to somehow deal with his loss so he can let go of Greenlee, and he can be free to love someone else.
Ryan: I must've left, like, a dozen messages on your extension. Val refused to connect me through. Is everything ok? Is there a big emergency over there at Fusion?
Erica: I just needed the quiet.
Ryan: Hey, is everything ok? You seemed a little off last night.
Erica: I was stressed.
Ryan: Sounds like somebody needs to escape. Well, get your stuff together, because we are going to the islands.
Erica: Ryan, I'm not going away with you.
Colby: Hey. You talk to Bailey? You explain the whole "you, me in my bedroom" thing: Completely innocent?
Damon: It was rough.
Colby: Yeah, but she got it?
Damon: Actually, she took Stuart home to her parents to figure stuff out.
Colby: Wow. Oh. Don't worry. She'll come back. She has to. And by the time she does, you'll have your whole burglary charges against you dropped.
Damon: And hopefully find a job. This is my 12th application today.
Colby: Don't worry. You will find something.
Damon: It's not like I can use Pierre or Seasons East as references.
Colby: Well, you could use me as a reference. You know, the Chandler mojo.
Colby: Well, you're fighting for your family. I can't say the same for mine.
Damon: Yeah, the dragon lady was pretty steamed at the police station.
Colby: Well, I am not talking about her. I am talking about my dad.
Damon: What did he do?
Colby: He married Annie Lavery.
Scott: Where have you been? I've been waiting in the library.
Annie: Calm down. I was talking to Adam.
Scott: Well, that doesn't give you a hall pass on the audit.
Annie: I think Adam's having second thoughts about the merit trust.
Scott: Ok. How does that affect me or you?
Annie: It doesn't. But I think Colby's really starting to get to him.
Scott: And so Colby convinces Uncle Adam to drop the merit trust, and you're home free.
Annie: No. Colby convinces Adam to drop just her conditions, and we get screwed.
Scott: Oh. I have no problem meeting the rules. Do you?
Annie: I have a problem with Colby trying to work every person in this family.
Scott: Oh, you're overreacting.
Annie: Open your eyes, Scott. She's trying to con you, too. I mean, she still wants me out of Adam's life.
Scott: Where's your proof?
Annie: I don't need proof. As a former manipulator, I can spot her moves before she makes them.
Scott: And now who's trying to con me, hmm?
Brot: Where's your warrant, Officer Fowler?
Natalia: Don't need one, cadet. I've got probable cause.
Brot: For what? Sampling my kisses?
Natalia: Don't be shy. You think I'm special.
Brot: Yeah, special in that annoying kind of way.
Natalia: Oh, come on. Just admit it. You put the Hershey kisses on my desk as a peace offering.
Brot: You know, I love a good kiss. Don't you?
Natalia: "To my special daughter. Hope you enjoy the Hershey's kisses. Love, Dad."
Greenlee: I'll talk to Marissa, make her understand you've been protecting me.
David: You really think so, huh? I doubt she'll even show up at the wedding.
Greenlee: Oh, she'll be there. She's your daughter.
David: Thank you for convincing me to stay.
Greenlee: Family supports family, and you're mine. Don't forget it.
David: You know, that's funny, because I didn't see Jack's name on your invite list.
Greenlee: I don't want him there. This is about getting back at Erica and Ryan. My father shouldn't be collateral damage.
David: You have to tell him, Greenlee.
Greenlee: I will, after the wedding.
David: You're not gonna have time. Jack is on Erica's speed dial, and she's gonna blow you out of the water before you even say "I do."
Greenlee: Oh, my God, you're right. I didn't even think about that. What am I gonna do?
David: Make it right with him. Talk to Jack. He's gonna be overjoyed that you're still alive.
Greenlee: Isn't he in Europe somewhere?
David: Well, right about now you might want to check the chapel.
Ryan: Gorgeous, even after your feeble attempt to veto the vacation.
Erica: We can't go.
Ryan: Something happened.
Erica: You're right. Something has happened.
Ryan: Something that you can't escape from for a couple days?
Erica: It's all we've been doing.
Ryan: I thought you enjoyed it.
Erica: I did -- in the beginning. Ryan, we have to face reality.
Erica: We can't do this anymore.
Annie: Oh -- I don't scheme to get what I want anymore.
Scott: I believe you.
Annie: Do you?
Scott: Well, let's put it to a test, shall we? It's just you and me here, and the security cameras were taken out with the renovation. So if you hadn't changed, how would you use this merit trust to your advantage?
Annie: I thought you didn't care about it.
Scott: I don't. This is just an exercise.
Annie: In manipulation?
Scott: In your ability to read situations.
Annie: Simple. I would get Colby to fall for the wrong kind of guy, and I would take her share of the money.
Scott: Hmm. And J.R.?
Annie: Keep him out of the house.
Scott: And what would you do to me?
Scott: Then we'd both be out of the trust.
Annie: Could be worth it.
Colby: Annie is a money-grubbing mega-slut.
Damon: Don't hold back or anything. You know, let the anger out.
Colby: You know, she almost killed my father.
Damon: Yeah. Death by a lap dance -- that's how I want to go.
Colby: You know, that really wasn't funny.
Damon: It's a little funny.
Colby: Ok, well, that witch -- she convinced my dad she's his angel. I mean, that is disgusting. She makes me sick.
Damon: Can't you just get your dad to plant a boot in her ass?
Colby: Oh, that was my plan, and I had it all planned out. J.R. wouldn't go along with it. I hate this trust.
Damon: Am I getting a burger for this story?
Colby: Oh. So my dad -- he made this whole legal trust demanding I marry someone from a good family or else I get almost no money.
Damon: This is what you should do, Colby. You should put an ad on the internet: "Looking for love if you have 10 mil in the bank."
Colby: You know, you're a jerk. I hid you in my house, I stood up to my mom, and I listened to you bitch. But when I want to vent for a few minutes, you just joke. So you know what, Damon? I don't need this. I am out of here.
Damon: Colby, I'm sorry. Don't be like that.
Colby: No, you know what? At least I know who I can depend on and who I can't.
J.R.: So you didn't believe me, huh? Came here to check on me? Afraid I was playing hooky? Or worse: That I got drunk, fell off the wagon, hung-over?
Adam: You sounded horrible on the phone. You look even worse.
J.R.: Well, thank you for the ego boost.
Adam: I spoke with Colby.
J.R.: Damn it. I told Colby not to say anything. Last thing I want is your pity. I'm gonna beat this.
Adam: You're out of remission?
J.R.: You didn't know?
Adam: Uh-uh. When did it happen?
J.R.: It doesn't matter, because cancer's not gonna win. I will.
[Adam and J.R. hug]
Ryan: "We can't do this anymore"?
Erica: Ryan, our friendship is perfect, and I never expected it to grow into a full-blown relationship, and the truth is it never should have. If we were to pursue this, our lives would be far too complicated.
Ryan: We could make them as uncomplicated as possible.
Erica: There's way too much between us: Kendall, Spike.
Ryan: But we deserve to be happy.
Erica: We do. But we can't be together anymore. We've been pretending that this is more than it really is.
Ryan: We were so incredible together. You can't deny that.
Erica: And I care very much for you, so much. But we could never say those three magical little words to each other and speak them the way they were meant to be said. I don't love you, Ryan, not the way you are meant to be loved, and I know that you don't love me that way either. I'm not gonna settle for less, and I won't let you settle for less either, not when the people who are meant to be loved by us are out there for us.
Jack: Well, Hayward, this had better be good. You've been bombarding me with messages all day. I have a flight to Paris to catch. What you can possibly want from my --
Greenlee: Hi, Dad.
