Scott: 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: And your ability to read situations.
Annie: Simple. I'd get Colby to fall for the wrong guy so I'd get her share of the money.
Scott: And J.R.?
Annie: Just 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.
Adam: I spoke with Colby. J.R.
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.: Doesn't matter. This cancer's not gonna win. I will.
J.R.: Good. You're home.
Adam: Why didn't you tell me?
J.R.: Because I didn't want you to look at me like that.
Erica: 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. You know I'm right, don't you?
Ryan: Gorgeous and wise and honest, even when it's very hard to be.
Erica: I'm sorry.
Ryan: Uh-uh. Don't be sorry. You're amazing, do you know that? I wish it had been you.
Erica: I wish it had been you, too.
Jackson: Greenlee? It's really -- oh, my God. You're alive?
Adam: Of course, you don't want to be pitied. You're your own man. But you're in a fight now, son. You need a support system.
J.R.: I have my support system.
Adam: You have your family. Don't shut us out. We want to help you!
J.R.: Do you believe this? I wanted family. I begged you to choose family, but you chose Annie. So why the hell should I turn to you now?
Marissa: J.R., you need to relax.
J.R.: No, no. I'm fine.
Adam: Well, I'm sorry if I've upset you. I love you, J.R., and I'm concerned.
J.R.: So I'm supposed to just trust you now? This coming from the man who would rather have a relationship with a psycho than his own son?
Adam: This is not about Annie! This is about you and your health!
J.R.: Oh, yeah, Dad. I have cancer. I have cancer, ok? But that doesn't change a single thing between us.
Adam: I want to help you.
J.R.: No. You want to control me.
Adam: No, I don't!
J.R.: Yeah, you've been trying to control me ever since I was born, with lies, manipulation, and money. Well, now I've got cancer, Dad, so here's your shot, all right?
Marissa: J.R., don't.
J.R.: It's an angle you haven't used before. Now, you want what's best for me? You want what's best for me? No, you want what's best for you! And you proved that the moment you chose Annie.
[J.R. faints and hits his head on the furniture as he goes down]
Adam: Son -- son --
[As Colby tapes Scott and Annie kissing, her cell phone rings]
Colby: Hey, guys.
Annie: Hey. We didn't, um, we didn't hear you. You been home long?
Colby: No, no. I just got here. What's up?
Annie: Just working.
Colby: Oh. Hmm. Who knew crunching numbers could work up such a sweat?
Scott: We really should get back to the spreadsheets.
Colby: Yes, you don't want to keep the sheets waiting. So, uh, where's my dad?
Colby: Well, he'll be sorry he missed all the fun. You know, he's always been a sucker for counting his money. See ya. Ok, why did you call me?
Damon: I wanted to say I'm sorry.
Colby: You know, Damon, you're a jerk.
Damon: But you called me back, so there's hope.
Colby: What do you want?
Damon: I got the ConFusion job. I start today. I thought maybe you could drop by, I'll buy you some fries to make it up to you.
Annie: You know she saw us, and you know she's gonna tell Adam. If she does, I can say good-bye to this house, and you can say good-bye to this company.
Scott: Well, I guess that answers that question.
Annie: What question?
Scott: Was it worth it?
Erica: It really is much better this way, you know. I mean, with my track record. I'm very happy to have you as a friend.
Ryan: So -- so we're ok?
Erica: More than ok.
Ryan: I mean, really, truly deep down.
Erica: A little sad maybe. You?
Ryan: I'm a little sad.
Erica: You're not devastated?
Ryan: Ha ha! Would you like me to be devastated?
Erica: I am Erica Kane. Most men when they lose me, they're a little bit devastated.
Ryan: Well, then I am definitely a little bit devastated. Ha.
Ryan: Do you think -- do you think we screwed it up?
Erica: I think this is one of the most civilized breakups I've ever had.
Ryan: No. I'm talking about our friendship. I just hope the jumping into bed didn't ruin everything.
Erica: We didn't jump. We were friends first for a very long time, and we're friends now again. Only closer.
Ryan: And partners. I mean, are we still running Fusion together?
Erica: I wouldn't have it any other way.
Ryan: Ok, good. We're certainly gonna have our work cut out for us, that's for sure.
Erica: Oh, we're gonna get Fusion back on track and in the black in no time.
Ryan: No. I'm talking about the press. I mean, we just made our big announcement. I'm a little curious how we'll handle the unannouncement.
Erica: Oh, I think that we have so many more important things to deal with. What if we don't?
Ryan: That is genius.
Ryan: I'm just thinking about the incredibly lucky man that's gonna fall in love with you heart and soul.
Erica: Oh, you are gonna find someone, too.
Ryan: No, no, no. No. Not gonna happen for me.
Jackson: My God, I'm not dreaming, am I? 'Cause I've had this dream a lot.
Greenlee: Me, too. It's kept me going.
Jackson: I don't understand. How -- how is this possible? Honey, wh -- where were you? What happened?
Greenlee: I'm here, and I'm going to be your daughter for eons to come. Can we just -- leave it at that for now?
Jackson: I'm looking forward to every minute of it, yeah, but you have to make me understand how this -- how this could be. I mean, how did you survive that accident? Greenlee, the fall alone would have killed anyone, and that river was freezing. Sweetheart, they found you -- but here you are. How?
Greenlee: Someone found me. I was unconscious, almost dead. I was in a coma for months, and when I woke up, I was -- I was so confused. I still thought it was my wedding day.
Greenlee: And then -- when I found out how much time had passed and everybody thought I was dead --
Jackson: Why didn't you call us?
Greenlee: I couldn't.
Jackson: Well, then why didn't whoever rescued you call us? I mean, your name, your face was all over the news. Certainly they knew who you were, that you had people who loved you or were looking for you. What kind of a monster would let your family and friends think you were dead?
Scott: You know, I just -- I can't believe I let you get to me again.
Annie: What? It's not like I held you down.
Scott: This has to stop, Annie.
Annie: Ok, can we just stop with the self-flagellation for a second and focus on what is important? Damage control.
Scott: Ok. Ok. Maybe Colby won't tell Adam. I -- I don't --
Annie: She'll have a marching band and fireworks. So we -- we just have to -- we just have to come up with our story.
Scott: You were choking and I used my tongue to help?
Annie: You better take this seriously, because it could be the end of both of us.
Annie: Hi, sweetheart, where are you?
Adam: I need to talk to Colby. It's important.
Annie: Colby. I haven't seen her.
Adam: Well, track her down. Tell her to meet us at the hospital.
Annie: What's happened? Are you all right?
Adam: I'm fine. It's J.R.
Damon: You came.
Colby: Yeah. I actually had nothing else to do.
Damon: Oh. Well, I really am sorry for trashing your family. You know, I was -- I was out of line. At least they give a crap.
Colby: No. You -- all right, my family is majorly messed up, like Jerry Springer messed up, especially my wicked step-bitch mother.
[Cell phone rings]
Colby: Oh. Sorry. Oh, my step-monster's ears must be burning.
Damon: Are you gonna answer it?
Colby: No. I'm gonna let her sweat a little bit longer.
Erica: Don't be such a pessimist.
Erica: Of course, you're going to find someone else to love.
Ryan: No, it's not pessimism. It's just, uh, it's kind of like a defensive move. Well, I know how much you love to fix things, and I can just imagine you trying to, like, set me up with somebody that you think is perfect or try to get me out there more.
Erica: Because you deserve to be happy.
Ryan: And I've been happy, the kind of happy that doesn't happen twice.
Ryan: I mean, it took us a while to get there. I left. She left. We hurt each other. We helped each other. We hurt each other, but we always, uh, we always came back. And when we did, nothing could stop us. Or at least, that's what we thought.
Erica: I'm sorry.
Ryan: No, don't be sorry. I've got enough memories of Greenlee to last me a lifetime. "Surprise the day." That's what we used to say. She even wrote it in her vows, and she was. She was surprised every day.
Ryan: And at night -- I would just stare up at the moon, and I would just try to will her back.
Erica: So all those times I saw you looking at the moon, you were -- thinking of Greenlee, you were missing her?
Ryan: Um -- the moon was kind of our thing.
Erica: Oh --
Ryan: I'm sorry.
Erica: No, it's fine.
Ryan: Yeah? 'Cause it means a lot to me that I can talk to you about this, about Greenlee.
Greenlee: I'm the one to blame. It was my call. When I woke up and realized how badly I was hurt, I didn't want anyone contacted.
Jackson: Aw, honey, why? Why? Why didn't you want to see us?
Greenlee: I couldn't move my legs. The surgery that made this possible was so insanely risky I couldn't take the chance of calling you and then dying on you all over again.
Jackson: Oh, honey, I could have been there for you, I could have helped you.
Greenlee: I know, and I love you for that. But losing me a second time, I couldn't do that to you. So I waited until I knew I'd make it.
Jackson: Here you are. Healthy and strong. Oh! And -- and you are ok, right?
Greenlee: I'm here to stay.
Jackson: Good. Does Ryan know?
Greenlee: You're the first.
Jackson: Well, I like that, but we have to tell him.
Jackson: My darling daughter, I can't -- who is responsible for this miracle? I mean, if I never believed in miracles before, I sure do now. Who is it? I want to thank them for returning my daughter to me.
Greenlee: Well, you're in luck. He's here.
Jackson: He's here? You.
Marissa: Is he all right?
J.R.: I'm fine. I just got dizzy.
Adam: You're not fine. You have cancer.
J.R.: Yeah, it's a little hard to forget with this port in my chest. So, Doc, am I gonna live?
Doctor: No concussion. A stitch or two and you'll be as good as new. Your oncologist might try to adjust your chemo protocols.
Adam: I want second and third opinions.
J.R.: Yeah, this is exactly why I don't need you here.
Adam: I want the very best for you.
Marissa: Maybe you could wait outside.
Adam: All right, I understand that you don't want me to help you right now. But later, if you do, I'll be here.
J.R.: You see that? It's classic Adam. He just wants to control everything.
Marissa: He's just worried about you.
J.R.: He means nothing to me.
Scott: Is J.R. all right?
Adam: Uh, he took a fall. He got some stitches.
Annie: Ah. Drunk again? Why am I not surprised?
Adam: Where's Colby?
Annie: Um, I couldn't find her. I called, but she didn't pick up.
Adam: Damn it, she's got to be here. J.R. needs her. And he needs all of us.
Annie: For a bump on the head?
Scott: What's going on?
Adam: J.R. has cancer.
Erica: So all this time, all these feelings you had about Greenlee, you felt that you couldn't open up to me that much because we were lovers.
Ryan: Would have been a little awkward, don't you think?
Erica: Ha. But now that we're friends again, I hope you never hold back with me about anything.
Ryan: Even about Greenlee?
Erica: Even about Greenlee. Really, I'm honored that you trust me enough to talk to me about what really matters to you.
Ryan: Even though you -- you weren't exactly a fan?
Erica: No, I wasn't exactly a fan of Greenlee's. I don't think we were ever meant to be friends, but when I hear you talk about how she surprised you and how she made you happy, I can appreciate her for that very much. And listening to you from your point of view, I can understand why you fell in love with her.
Ryan: You really are something, you know that?
[Cell phone rings]
Erica: Oh, get that.
Erica: That might be important.
Ryan: Ha. Oh, it's Jesse. He wants to see me.
Erica: Oh, go.
Ryan: You sure?
Erica: Of course, I'm sure. It's probably about Fusion.
Jackson: So what are you saying, that Hayward here, that Hayward was the one that rescued you from that riverbank?
Greenlee: And kept me alive and found the best surgeon in the world so I could walk again.
Jackson: And you never bothered to tell me? To tell Ryan? To tell Kendall? You just let us grieve?
Greenlee: It was my decision.
David: I wanted to tell you.
Jackson: The hell you did. What you wanted was to watch our grief, enjoy your secret, enjoy being in control.
Greenlee: That's not how it was.
Jackson: You know, you've always loved playing God, David, always. But this? You demented --
Greenlee: It wasn't like that.
Jackson: You tell me, how was it?
David: Greenlee was barely alive. It was touch and go for months. I didn't want to tell you that she was alive only to have her die on you again.
Jackson: Oh, so you did this for us?
Greenlee: When I woke up, I was so weak. My legs were paralyzed. I needed an operation. There was no guarantee I'd even survive.
Jackson: I'm sorry, but that's not a reason for him to keep this to himself.
Greenlee: I wanted to come back to you strong, healthy. I wanted this, to tell you myself and share this miracle with you, not do it over the phone.
Jackson: And I'm eternally grateful that you're back, strong and healthy, standing right here in front of me. What's your angle, David, huh? What do you get out of this?
Greenlee: You should be thanking David, not attacking him.
Jackson: You dredged up a corpse. You tampered with the DNA so we'd think Greenlee was dead, didn't you? Let me tell you something, he didn't do that for you. He did that because he likes to play master of the universe.
Greenlee: Who are you calling?
Jackson: The police.
Greenlee: You can't.
Jackson: And now I'm gonna take you as far away from him as I possibly can.
Greenlee: I would be dead if it weren't for him.
Jackson: Come on, Greenlee.
Greenlee: If you make that call, I really will be dead to you.
Jackson: You can't mean that.
Greenlee: Maybe you don't approve of David's methods, but the only reason I'm standing here is because of him, and there's no way in hell I'm gonna let you throw him in prison.
David: Greenlee, it's all right.
Greenlee: No, it's not. If you go anywhere near the police, you will never see me again. Thank you.
Jackson: Listen, honey, you -- come stay with me. There are so many people who are going to want to see you and talk to you. I mean, Ryan, Kendall --
Greenlee: No! I mean, not so soon.
Jackson: And why is that?
Greenlee: Can I have a few minutes with my father?
David: Of course. Just don't overdo it.
Jackson: Look, I know you don't want to hear this right now, but Hayward is not the hero he makes himself out to be.
Greenlee: You're right. I don't want to hear it.
Jackson: What he is, Greenlee, is a thief. He stole 12 months from your life. He's got you convinced that he brought you back from the dead. He's gonna use your gratitude against you. You watch.
Greenlee: I know hating David is Pine Valley's favorite hobby, but for now, for you and me, just drop it, ok?
Jackson: Ok, of course. Whatever you want.
Greenlee: My favorite words. And there is something I want.
Jackson: Sure, of course, you want to see Ryan.
Greenlee: I don't want Ryan to know I'm alive.
Ryan: You've got to be kidding me. Valentine's Day? No. No. No way in hell.
Jackson: You know word of your professional teamwork has made it all the way across the Atlantic. How is Kendall gonna explain a thing like that? Her mommy and his daddy are sleeping together?
Erica: Oh, how dare you?
Jackson: Look, if I have any idea what Ryan's going through, it's because I was in his shoes. I've lost my heart. And yes, I'm talking about you. You are hell to get over. You do know that, don't you?
Scott: All those times I slammed J.R. for being drunk, hung-over, huh. Oh, my God.
Adam: Don't be too hard on yourself.
Colby: Hey, I got Annie's message. What happened?
Adam: J.R. fell, hit his head. Bad reaction to the chemo.
Colby: He told you?
Adam: Yes. And I wished you'd have told me sooner.
Colby: I gave J.R. my word.
Adam: Yeah, I know. I understand, and I'm proud of you. Keeping your promise, helping protect your brother? Yeah, that's my girl. I'm so glad all the secrets are out.
Colby: I am just glad you finally told Dad.
J.R.: That was an accident.
Colby: "How are you? I have cancer." That's an accident?
J.R.: I thought you ratted me out.
Colby: You jerk, I wouldn't do that.
J.R.: Well, thank you for knowing how to keep a secret.
Colby: If I feel like it. Ha ha.
Doctor: Dr. Khan wants to adjust your chemo protocol. I'd like to go over it with you.
Colby: Well, I guess that's my cue. Love you, brother.
J.R.: I love you, too.
P.A. Announcement: Dr. Wise, Dr. Wise, call the lobby.
Scott: Hey. How is he?
Colby: He's the coolest brother in the world. Where's my dad?
Scott: Uh, he and Annie, they went out for some air.
Colby: So, what is it like when Annie comes up for air?
Scott: You saw us, didn't you?
Colby: Everything but full frontal. Props. Huh.
Colby: You're finally on board, aren't you? The perfect plan. You do Annie, Dad kicks Annie to the curb, problem solved.
Scott: I'm not playing, Colby. This is over, all right?
Colby: Have you -- have you seen my new cell phone? Insane megapixels. And the images? It's almost like you were there.
Scott: You didn't.
Colby: Oh -- and it's brilliant.
Scott: Your father just found out that his son has cancer, and you are going to slam him with a picture of Annie and me kissing?
Colby: No. Actually, I used video.
Scott: You think he'll divorce Annie.
Colby: I don't know, but he's definitely gonna wonder about you -- if he can trust you. And it would be terrible if you got fired for putting your lips on his wife. Again. I told you to pick a side, Scott.
Scott: Why do I have this crazy feeling that you've already picked it for me?
Colby: Well, all you have to do is help me get rid of Annie.
Scott: And if I don't?
Colby: I am really, really gonna miss you.
Annie: This is why you wanted J.R. back in the house, why you made it a condition of the merit trust. You were -- you were scared his cancer was gonna come back, and you wanted to be there for him.
Adam: It would be the world to me if J.R. let me back in his life again.
Annie: I know, but, Adam, you can't force his decision.
Adam: J.R. is pushing real hard because he wants to be strong for Marissa and Little Adam. Well, that can't go on forever. What he needs is someone who will shoulder the responsibility for that, who would take care of his family if the worst should happen.
Annie: Come here. Come here. Whatever you need, I am here for you, ok? Whatever you need.
Greenlee: I'm, uh, just not ready to tell Ryan.
Jackson: Was this Hayward's idea?
Greenlee: Ha! He saved my life. He didn't brainwash me into doing his biddings. All me.
Jackson: You're sure? 'Cause Ryan would want to know you're alive. I think maybe the sooner you told him, the better.
Greenlee: No. Please, Dad. I need to do this my way. I needed you to promise that you won't tell anyone you've seen me.
Jackson: Honey, I want to shout it from the rooftops. You're asking me not to say anything?
Greenlee: I know, I know. It's asking a lot, but I just need you to trust me on this. It's important.
Jackson: Ok. I -- I won't tell a soul. I don't know how the hell I'm gonna do that, but I promise you, I won't.
[Greenlee hugs her dad]
Jackson: I can't believe you're here. Oh, honey, listen, come stay with me, huh? I mean, you can hide from the world as long as you want.
Greenlee: I need to be here. Just for a little while.
Greenlee: I need more time.
Jackson: You've lost so much time already. It was a year ago. A year ago. I mean, you and Ryan, me toasting the bride and groom to be. Of course. Of course, you're waiting until Valentine's Day because that would be your one-year anniversary, right?
Greenlee: Exactly. What better day to reveal myself.
Greenlee: Don't you have a plane to catch?
Jackson: I'm not going anywhere. You crazy?
Greenlee: You need to get back to your clients.
Jackson: Sweetheart, I'm not gonna leave you. I need you. You need me.
Greenlee: Come on. Why don't you give me a week. Go back to Europe, take care of your clients, get everything in order, and then come back, and we'll spend so much time together you'll get sick of me.
Jackson: Oh, no, no, no. Wait. First of all, that's impossible, ok?
Greenlee: Ha ha. Well, look at the bright side. I mean, in Europe you don't have anyone to lie to. It's much easier to keep my secret there than here in Pine Valley. Please?
Jackson: Ok, I-I'll -- I'll go, but let me tell you something -- this is the hardest thing I'll ever do in my entire life.
Greenlee: Thank you.
Jackson: Turn around and walk out that door and leave you behind.
Greenlee: Then don't. I'll do the walking. I love you so much.
Jackson: I love you. I love you.
Scott: Hey. Thanks.
Marissa: How are you holding up?
Scott: Oh, pretty good. You know, for a jackass who's been slamming his sick cousin for the last few months as a lazy drunk.
Marissa: Well, you didn't know.
Scott: I shouldn't have written him off, Marissa, same ol' selfish J.R. I was the one who was selfish.
Marissa: Well, I have it on pretty good authority that he's alone right now. Why don't you go tell him?
Scott: Yeah? Thanks.
Marissa: Ahh --
J.R.: You hear the one about the guy with cancer?
Scott: I'm an ass.
J.R.: You're my cousin. You know what sucks about this? I mean, besides everything? Is I hate to ask for help, but this stupid disease forces me to do that.
Scott: Whatever you need.
J.R.: My family. There's no one I trust more than you to take care of them.
Scott: Please don't talk like that.
J.R.: Will you do it?
Scott: You have my word.
Annie: J.R. is going to be fine.
Adam: And I'm gonna make sure of it.
Colby: Horrible, isn't it?
Annie: Yes. Little Adam lost his mother, and now his dad is sick. It's not fair.
Colby: Like you care.
Annie: I do care.
Colby: Yeah, only about yourself. J.R. moves back into the house, it changes everything. All that father/son bonding. And you're screwed. Finally and for good.
Annie: Wow. Ok, here we go, the real Colby. Between you and me, the sugary sweet version was starting to get on my nerves. This is much more refreshing.
Colby: Ha. Well, you know what gets on my nerves? Your tongue down Scott's throat.
Annie: So that's what's got you all worked up.
Colby: You know, if I hadn't walked in there, you just would have done it there right on the couch.
Annie: So what are you gonna do? What are you gonna tell Adam? Go ahead. He's never gonna believe you. What, did you take a picture?
Colby: No, it's -- it's even better. Huh. You think he's gonna believe this? What the hell are you doing?
[Annie grabs Colby's phone and breaks it in two]
Annie: Whoopsies! Sorry! Slipped.
Colby: So you think that's gonna stop me from busting you?
Annie: Try it. Without proof, you are just an immature, spoiled little child who is jealous of Daddy's new wife. What are you doing?
Colby: Being nice. Mmm.
[Cell phone rings]
Erica: Jack? Thank you for calling me back. I need to see you.
Jackson: It's -- it's really not a good time just right now.
Erica: Jack, I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important. Please.
Jackson: Ok, I'll be there as soon as I can.
Greenlee: My father wanted to drag me straight to Ryan. God, he thinks I'm waiting until Valentine's Day for the big reveal because I'm so damn sentimental.
David: I take it you didn't mention we were getting married.
Greenlee: One dead person around here is enough. But I think we're in the clear.
[When she hears tires squealing, Greenlee hides as Ryan bursts through the door]
Ryan: What the hell are you up to, Hayward?
David: You do realize that people usually knock, right?
Ryan: Getting married, are you?
David: Oh, you got your invitation?
Ryan: No. Actually I didn't. I heard about it from Jesse.
David: So is this you RSVP'ing in person? Plus one, I'm assuming.
Ryan: You son of a bitch. You son of a bitch. Valentine's Day?
David: It happens to be the most romantic day of the year.
Ryan: It also would have been Greenlee's and my first anniversary.
David: Ok, now you can't possibly believe that my big day is about you?
Ryan: What is wrong with you, Hayward? You just can't stop messing with me!
David: What are you whining about? You moved on, right? The whole world has been treated to these pictures of your grand affair with Erica.
Ryan: How you gonna spend your honeymoon, huh, you and your new bride? You gonna spend your time trying to incinerate what's left of Erica's company?
David: Ha ha. How do you think Greenlee would feel if she heard you refer to Fusion as Erica's company?
[Greenlee watches from behind the curtain as Ryan knocks David down with a punch]
Ryan: Don't you ever, ever say anything to me about Greenlee.
