Liza: Mm. Oh, I'm thinking the chili cheesesteak, extra peppers, extra cheese. What?
Tad: Nothing, nothing. Just you're a total Goddess with a real appetite.
Liza: Yes, I am.
Tad: And that is a woman after my own heart. Yeah.
Liza: Yeah? Oh, my. Since when did you start working here?
Damon: I just started. You surprised they'd hire me?
Liza: Well --
Damon: You know, just because you think I'm a jerk doesn't mean I don't deserve a chance. I'm proving I can take care of my family.
Liza: Oh. Great. You were thinking about your family when you spent the night in my daughter's bed?
Damon: Millionth time -- Colby is a friend.
Liza: And Bailey is the mother of your child.
Damon: Right, right. My child. So why don't you stay the hell out of it?
Liza: Yeah, I lost my appetite.
Brot: It's a charity tournament. Thought you might be interested. What time's your shift over? We can leave from here.
Natalia: Are you asking me out on a date?
Val: We've been at this for days. Nothing.
Randi: Yeah, well, at least Erica isn't here. Must be nice being the boss.
Madison: I'm sure Erica is all over this.
Randi: Yeah, well, I hope so. Because you know what I think? Erica is in denial. Fusion is toast.
Jesse: Or not. I think we might have caught a break.
Greenlee's voice: Please, Dad, I need to do this my way. I needed you to promise that you won't tell anyone you've seen me.
Erica: I thought I heard someone. Were you ever gonna knock?
Jack: Yes, of course. I was just finishing a text.
Erica: Thank you for coming here right away. I hope I wasn't interrupting anything.
Jack: No. Nothing important.
Ryan: 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've moved on, right? The whole world has been treated to these pictures of your grand affair with Erica.
Ryan: How are 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: How do you think Greenlee would feel if she heard you refer to Fusion as "Erica's company"?
[Ryan punches David]
Ryan: Don't you ever, ever say anything to me about Greenlee.
David: Well, that was one hell of a wedding gift, huh?
Ryan: I'm out of here. You know what? You want to finish this right now, Hayward? Do you? Because nothing would make me happier than finishing this right now.
David: You crack me up. You show up in my home uninvited, you insult me, and then you attack me and you act as if it's something that I started. And, oh, that's right, because it's my fault, because I dared to have my wedding on the day that you feel you have a special claim to.
Ryan: Your wedding, your farce of a wedding. I don't know what you're up to, Hayward, but this grudge that you have against me? Let it go, man, because it's sick.
David: Oh, no, no. You see, that's where you're wrong. This wedding is about finding love, moving on. Well, that's what you've done, right? That's what you told me the other day. So why shouldn't I experience that same kind of joy?
Ryan: You tell me who the hell your bride is, or I will beat it out of you.
Jack: So why did you want to see me?
Erica: To tell you you were right. I know. I hardly ever say that, which is why I thought you'd want to hear that from me in person.
Jack: Right about what?
Erica: About Ryan and me. I broke it off.
Jack: That's good.
Erica: Well, I thought about what you said, that even though I care about Ryan, care for him, maybe I did play it safe. And that's something I've never done.
Erica: So, I mean, I certainly don't want to start now. And actually it's really the best decision for both of us. We're still friends, we're still very close. Of course, we still have Fusion to run. Only now I'm free to find whatever relationship is out there waiting for me. And Ryan's free, too to find the next Greenlee in his life.
Jack: The next Greenlee?
Brot: It's for charity. We're top cops in that area, and I want to keep it that way.
Natalia: So you're not asking me on a date or anything like that.
Brot: Do you want it to be?
Natalia: No. I'm just saying -- I mean, the way you asked me, it kind of sounded like --
Brot: Look, look. We're two cops, dance champions, out to conquer the lanes. I mean, if you want, we could even meet -- we could even meet there.
Natalia: All right. I'll see you there. Hope you're a lot better at bowling than you are at dancing.
Brot: Hey, hey, hey. We won, though.
Natalia: Yeah, I know my feet will never be the same.
Jesse: Cyber Crimes Division found a symbol embedded in the virus software.
Randi: A symbol?
Jesse: Yeah. Apparently these hackers like to leave a cyber signature on their handiwork. Well, we checked out the signature, and it belongs to a Mitchell "The Plague" Lawson. How stupid is that?
Randi: That doesn't make any sense. Why would he advertise? I mean, would he want to get caught?
Jesse: Well, apparently that's part of the payoff for some of these idiots, you know, some twisted kind of fame.
Randi: Ok, that doesn't make sense.
Madison: Ok. So if "The Plague" made the virus, can he unmake it?
Val: But wait. Can the damage be reversed?
Jesse: That's the idea. First we got to bring him in.
Tad: You know, now I'm thinking comfort food, and the chicken pot pie is supposed to be fantastic. Hello.
Liza: I'm thinking nails because I'm really ready to spit them right out.
Tad: God, you are just ruthless. Why can't you just, for 20 minutes, give it up. Stop thinking about --
Liza: He slept in my daughter's bed.
Tad: Yeah, and from what I understand, that's all he did, ok? So maybe you and I should be concentrating on the softshell crab.
Liza: No. And the fact is that Bailey's still at her parents' with Stuart, and this wedding of David's to this mystery woman -- it's seriously all enough to make anyone lose their appetite. I might never eat again.
Tad: Really? I'm sorry to hear that, because I don't think you'll get any wedding cake. I need a date, and I was really hoping it would be you.
Liza: Come on. You are kidding.
Tad: I am not kidding. I intend to catch the garter.
Liza: We just staged an intervention, because Jake got into this whole David thing way too deep. You need to take a page.
Tad: I am, and that's exactly why I'm going to the wedding.
Tad: I'm going to that wedding. I don't have a choice. And I really, really would appreciate it if you would come with me.
Liza: All right. But if that cake explodes --
Tad: Hey. Who the hell is this?
Liza: Who is it?
Tad: Hey, Krystal. What's up?
Krystal: Hey, hey. I am so sorry to bother you. I know you're on a date with Liza, and I wouldn't have called --
Tad: No, just tell me. What's wrong?
Krystal: Well, it's Kathy. She has a little bit of a fever and a tummy ache, and she just keeps asking for her daddy.
Tad: Um, ok, I'll be right there.
Krystal: No need to rush.
Tad: No, we're on our way.
Jesse: What do you know about a failsafe used on the computer system at Fusion?
Mitchell: The makeup company? Nothing.
Jesse: Isn't this your signature?
Mitchell: Ok. I may have created it, but I didn't activate it.
Jesse: Any idea who did?
Mitchell: Why don't you talk to the women that hired me? One of them pulled the trigger, not me.
Jesse: Greenlee Smythe, Kendall Hart -- they hired you.
Mitchell: Sounds familiar.
Jesse: But anybody could, as you put it, pull the trigger. Plug in the flash drive, create havoc. Total destruction.
Mitchell: Do I look like some kind of amateur? This virus is incredibly sophisticated. It requires an access password and a code to run it. Only three people knew the combination.
Jesse: You, Kendall, and Greenlee.
Jack: Can we just change the subject?
Erica: It's just that Ryan can't go on grieving forever. I mean, you said the same thing. Oh, I know this must be very difficult for you. I mean, you flew all the way over here because you're worried about me, and I know you weren't prepared for all the memories of Greenlee. I know that everywhere you look you see her.
Jack: Oh, you have no idea.
Erica: Oh, losing Greenlee was huge -- for you and Ryan. But of course, Ryan needs to go on with his life. And he's a very passionate, very loving, man. And so of course, he's gonna find another woman at some point. I know that's gonna be very hard for you to accept, Jack, but please know this -- Ryan will always carry Greenlee in his heart.
Jack: Can we just talk about something else?
Erica: Of course. I'm -- it's just -- you, here, after all this time. Us. That's funny. You got me to look at myself and find the truth, and because of that I broke off my relationship with Ryan and found closure. But with you and me, we haven't really had that, have we? Look, Jack, I was finally honest with myself, and now I think it's time that both of us are honest with each other. Jack.
Erica: Have you even heard anything I've said?
Jack: Yes. Honesty. And you're exactly right. That's exactly what the situation calls for.
Erica: I'm glad we agree.
Jack: I have to go.
David: You can't even imagine this is all about love.
Ryan: If it was about love, you probably would have been straight up, Hayward.
David: Mm. Well, this is so much more fun. Go home, Ryan. Your invitation's waiting. I had it hand-delivered to make sure you got it.
Ryan: Because you so desperately want me at your wedding.
David: Well, if this wedding were limited to just my friends, the chapel would be empty. But my bride deserves a special day, an unforgettable one, and that's exactly what I'm gonna give her.
Ryan: Whoever she is, whoever would go along with this insanity, she's got to be as twisted as you. And you know what? Maybe you have met your match.
David: Well, I can't argue with you there. I guess you're gonna have to attend to find out.
Ryan: I know. And unfortunately I'm gonna be a little busy with Erica rebuilding Fusion. So, can't make it.
David: Hmm. Which you still think I'm responsible for.
Ryan: Here's an idea. You got an issue with me, settle it with me, one on one, straight at me. Don't drag Erica into this, because if you do, I'm gonna come back at you ten times harder.
David: What a surprise. Another threat.
Ryan: She's an incredible woman, all right? And I'm not gonna let you or anybody else hurt her. So have your little farce of a wedding with your stunt bride while Erica and I just take Fusion to a whole new level.
David: Right. Got it. From the mattress to the floor?
Ryan: You failed, Hayward. You failed. If you were trying to take Fusion down for good, you failed. Enjoy your wedding.
David: Well, that was interesting.
Greenlee: You ruined everything.
Erica: Jack, where are you going?
Jack: There's some things I have to take care of.
Erica: That's it?
Opal: Jackson Montgomery, I heard you were in town. You are a sight for sore eyes.
Jack: How are you, Opal?
Opal: Gosh. Well, with you here? A heck of a lot better than I was before I walked through that door.
Jack: I actually need to walk out.
Opal: Oh, no. Don't leave on my account.
Jack: No, I'm late anyway.
Opal: Well, it's -- well, he sure blew out of here faster than a rooster from a henhouse fire. What did you say to him?
Erica: I just asked him to be honest.
Tad: Hey. How's Kathy?
Krystal: Oh, well, I gave her a little dose of medicine for her tummy ache. But I really think that a big hug and a kiss from her daddy is gonna go a long way in making her feel better.
Liza: Go. Go, go, go.
Krystal: Sorry for interrupting your date.
Liza: Oh, please. It's no big deal.
Krystal: Seems like every time you turn around you're running into the ex-wife. It can't be easy.
Liza: Come on, Krystal. You two share children together. They come first.
Krystal: And we share a roof. I mean, that's got to put a crimp in your spontaneity.
Liza: What? We've walked in on you and Rob a couple times, too. That can't be easy on you guys.
Krystal: Yeah. Well, you know, there's no reason to worry about that. There is no more "Rob and me."
Jesse: Listen, I need to follow up on the partial print from the flash drive, see if there are any matches yet.
Natalia: Ok. What do you want to do about him?
Jesse: Keep working him. Use some of that fancy cyber lingo you know so well. Maybe you can get more out of him than your old man could, huh?
Natalia: All right.
Jesse: Get in there.
Natalia: Your leet -- it's incredibly advanced. Now if our people could have broken your morphology, we might have been able to access the virus and reverse it.
Mitchell: You speak leet?
Mitchell: Wow. Geeks don't usually come in such a hot package.
Natalia: I'm not a "hot package." I'm a cop. Look, every virus has a backdoor, and you're the only one with the key. Now considering the charges you could be facing --
Mitchell: What charges?
Natalia: I think now would be a good time to cooperate.
Mitchell: It'll cost you.
Brot: You want a payoff?
Mitchell: Mm-mm. I want a date with the hot cop.
Natalia: You've got it. And I know exactly where we're gonna go.
Ryan: Jesse, you got a sec?
Jesse: Oh, let me guess. You went to congratulate Hayward on his upcoming nuptials.
Ryan: That son of a bitch is lucky to be alive.
Greenlee: The whole point of the wedding is for Ryan to be there, to see me declare my undying love to another man, and not just any man -- you. But now, thanks to your mouth and your fist, he's not coming. All you had to do was get him out of here without ticking him off.
David: I was doing it for you. Thank you.
Greenlee: How is blowing up this wedding for me?
David: Well, better now than at the altar, don't you think?
Greenlee: What are you talking about?
David: Why do you think I brought Jack here? Pushed Ryan just now? So that you would know where everyone stands and how they feel. So now you can decide for yourself if this is something that you really want to go through with.
Greenlee: I already decided.
David: This is your chance, Greenlee. Go after Ryan.
Greenlee: I can't.
David: If you still love him, go to him. Tell him the truth.
Greenlee: What good would that do? Every word he said was about fighting for Fusion, protecting Erica, how amazing she is. It's obvious he's in love with her.
David: Oh, you know, I can't believe I'm gonna say this, and I hate that I'm gonna say this, but you have to know that Ryan is deluding himself. He doesn't love Erica.
Greenlee: Sounds like he did to me.
David: He's in love with you, Greenlee. He wants to be with you. If Ryan knew the truth, that you were alive, that would change everything.
Greenlee: I used to think that Ryan and I had one of those big, span-the-ages kind of love. Not even death could ever really come between us. But I'm the one who's delusional, not Ryan. If what we had really was so once-in-a-lifetime, he wouldn't have been able to move on so quickly.
[Pounding on door]
Jack: Hayward, open this door. I want to talk to my daughter.
David: We weren't expecting you back so soon.
Jack: I'm not leaving, Greenlee. I'm staying right here in Pine Valley.
Jesse: While you were getting that black eye, did you happen to find out who David's unlucky bride is?
Ryan: No. He was too busy being an ass. Hey, what's going on over there?
Jesse: That is Mitchell Lawson, aka "The Plague." He's the guy that created the virus that choked Fusion.
Ryan: Why don't you just give me two minutes with him, Jesse.
Jesse: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Ryan. Ryan, Ryan, one brawl a day, don't you think? According to this guy, the virus requires a password and an activation code.
Ryan: So Hayward must have figured out the code.
Jesse: Or somebody told him. We finally got something back on that partial print from the flash drive -- Greenlee.
Ryan: So Hayward did steal it from my place.
Jesse: Or -- I don't know -- you think maybe Greenlee told him about the codes?
Ryan: Why would she do that? No. No. I mean, she'd give Hayward the ability to take down Fusion? It's her baby. No, he figured this out. He created the code. He probably got help with his future wife.
Jesse: Looks like we got a wedding to go to.
Ryan: Hold on a second. There might be another way.
David: I'll give you some privacy.
Greenlee: We talked about this. You said you understood.
Jack: I do understand.
Greenlee: Then get on that plane and go.
Jack: Greenlee, I was recently reminded that I need to be honest with myself and with the people I love. And it would be anything but honest if I told you that I was all right with just going back to Europe and leaving you here all by yourself. I mean, what if something would happen? What if you get in trouble? What if you need me?
Greenlee: I have David.
Jack: Yeah, ok. Look, I know you think you owe David for saving your life, but, Greenlee, come on. You know what he's like. He's gonna use your gratitude to control you.
Greenlee: Has anyone ever been able to control me?
Jack: All right. Maybe not. My God, I've missed you so much.
Greenlee: Oh, I've missed you, too.
Jack: Yeah, but not so much you don't want to see me packing out of town?
Greenlee: No, it's not like that. It's just, what if you're around family and friends, you're having fun, you're happy, all of sudden, "Greenlee's alive" pops out of your mouth? It'll ruin everything. I just -- I really, really want to surprise Ryan.
Jack: What aren't you telling me?
Opal: You and Jackson -- is there anything you want to tell me?
Erica: Oh, we were talking. I broke up with Ryan.
Opal: You really did it. Oh, my word. You sure you didn't break up with Ryan because you and Jack are, or you're going to --
Erica: No, no, nothing like that.
Opal: Well, from the looks of it --
Erica: Jack just said that he thought that I was wasting my time with Ryan, that I deserve someone who -- well, he said that maybe he thought that Ryan wasn't -- well, he asked if I thought if Ryan was --
Opal: The one? Well, maybe that's because Jack thinks he is.
Erica: Look, could we just change the subject?
Opal: Well, it isn't near as exciting as a man winging his way all the way across the Atlantic just to see you, but David Hayward's getting hitched.
Randi: Are you sure that this gonna work?
Val: That's a good thing, right?
Mitchell: The warehouse delivery schedule is back online.
Randi: Oh, yes!
Madison: Oh, thank God.
Randi: This is great. This is great. Now we can at least move all the cases of Miranda that are blocking the loading dock.
Madison: Fusion might not be as far gone as you thought.
Randi: Hm. Anyway, we're still gonna need the contact list of all the retailers that placed orders.
Natalia: Is that gonna be a problem?
Mitchell: Not if you throw in dinner.
Natalia: You rock this in less than an hour, I'll kick in dessert.
Mitchell: And if do it in 20?
Natalia: You up the stakes, so will I.
Krystal: It's just broken. It's mutual, really. I guess.
Liza: I think you just wounded his pride. I didn't mean "wounded" as --
Krystal: I know. I know what you mean. And that is just it. I mean, the poor man is afraid to show his face around here without the Martin brothers and their nonstop sword routines.
Liza: Yeah, but, Krystal, come on. If you really like this guy -- I think you just hit a little bump in the road. Come on. It happens in relationships.
Krystal: Maybe it's just not meant to be.
Liza: Oh, please. He is a really good guy. And you two? You guys have so much fun together. Personally, I think it would be real shame to let this one go.
Krystal: I don't know. You know, my life is pretty full without a man in my life.
Liza: And not as much fun, though. I'm just saying.
Krystal: How is she?
Tad: Well, she didn't want to have a pillow fight, and that's a first.
Krystal: Ah. Is she still awake?
Tad: Yeah, yeah.
Liza: Do you mind if I go on upstairs and say hi?
Tad: I think she'd like that.
Liza: All right.
Krystal: Thanks for doing this.
Tad: Are you kidding? Honey, she's the light of my life. You don't have to thank me for being as good a father as you are a mother.
Krystal: You are. You're the best -- father.
[Knock on door]
Tad: Wha. Nice eye.
Tad: I hope you hit him back.
Ryan: I hit him first, actually.
Tad: That's the best news I've heard all day.
Krystal: Ouch. You want some ice for that?
Ryan: No, I'm good. I'm good, I'm good.
Tad: Tell me you came up with proof that Hayward sabotaged Fusion?
Ryan: No, not yet, but right now I want to figure out what is going on with this wedding of his.
Tad: Yeah, well, who doesn't?
Krystal: Yeah, a mystery bride. I mean, what kind of woman would go along with such a thing?
Ryan: Maybe the same kind of woman that helped him hack into Fusion.
Krystal: You're saying that David is marrying a computer geek.
Tad: Well, if he is, Nurse Gayle will be crushed.
Ryan: Well, maybe she's the bride.
Krystal: Well, she sure as hell has been his trusty helpmate.
Tad: No, she's been a lot more than that. She took the fall for when he was poisoning Adam, and on top of that she was accepting all those shipments of illegal drugs. I'd hate to think what's going on up there in Gloucester in that bar. I mean, last I heard, she needed an operation and he called it off.
Ryan: You guys got to help me out, ok? You got to help me out. We got to figure out who David's marrying before the wedding happens.
Krystal: By tomorrow.
Ryan: If we figure out who the mystery bride is, there's no mystery, right? And then David loses the surprise attack. You got to help me. Guys, please. What do you say?
Tad: Looks like I'm going to Gloucester.
Greenlee: This whole coming back from the dead thing -- it's harder than it looks. I mean, I still get tired so quickly, and the thought of facing everyone who thought I was gone -- the questions, seeing people I love again. I'm all over the place.
Jack: I imagine it's overwhelming. Greenlee, I'm sorry if I pushed too hard, but the very idea that you want me gone --
Greenlee: I love you.
Jack: I love you, too. So therefore I'm gonna meet you halfway. I will respect your wishes on how and when you want to tell Ryan and everybody else that you're alive. However, I'm not going anywhere.
Jack: Well, that's my Paris client. Don't go anywhere. I'll be right back. This won't take long. Bonjour, Jean-Jacques. Oui.
Jack: Oui. Au revoir. See? Done.
Greenlee: Everything ok?
Jack: Well, actually, the opposition just filed a motion, and Jean-Jacques is in crisis mode.
Greenlee: Well, that's terrible. I guess you're gonna have to go back then.
Jack: No, luckily I brought everything I need. I'll be able to take care of it from the hotel.
Greenlee: Oh. Good.
Jack: Now, unfortunately I'll be probably holed up there for the weekend.
Greenlee: The whole weekend?
Jack: Well, except when I sneak out to come see you.
Greenlee: No. No. No, no, no. That's ok. You work. Take care of everything you have to take care of. And we're gonna have a lot of time to spend together.
Jack: Yeah, but you see the problem is I'll be competing with Ryan for your time. Hey, look, you do still plan to tell him about Valentine's Day, right?
Greenlee: Yes. Of course.
Jack: "Yes. Of course"? Are these doubts that I hear?
Greenlee: No. What's that saying? "Man makes plans and God laughs"?
