David: I will never desert you. I will never let you down. I will always protect you. This is my vow. This is my promise to you right here and now.
Minister: And now we'll hear from the bride.
Jack: What are you doing? Why? Why?!
Opal: Oh, my Lord!
Jake: She's alive.
Amanda: Oh, my God.
Tad: I don't believe it.
Greenlee: I'm getting married, Dad.
Ryan: You're alive! [Sighs] H-how -- w -- when? It's -- it's ok. It's ok. What -- whatever happened, whatever you need, Greenlee, I'm going to take care of you, ok?
Greenlee: You're going to take care of me.
Ryan: Yes. I'm here now.
Greenlee: David's taking care of me.
Ryan: What? Wait. Wait. Wait. What? What? What is this? You're not actually marrying him?
Greenlee: David found me. He kept me alive. He brought me here all the way home down this aisle so I could stand next to him and say my vows.
Ryan: You don't have to do what he wants.
Greenlee: It's what I want.
Ryan: To marry Hayward?
Greenlee: We were in the middle of a ceremony. If you'd sit down, we could finish.
Ryan: What? Wait a minute. Wha -- what is going on here? What? What? What? What?! You're here. Wow! When -- when did he find you?
Greenlee: A year ago today.
Ryan: On our wedding day. And you never told me? You've known all this time, and you never told me, never told anyone that she's alive?
Tad: The son of a bitch probably drugged her just so he could control her like Krystal.
Greenlee: No one's drugged me.
Jack: Then what did you do to her, Hayward, huh? 'Cause she would never agree to -- Greenlee would never marry you.
Opal: Well, he obviously brainwashed her.
Jake: You couldn't stop with stealing babies and wives. You had to play God -- you had to play God with her?
Ryan: Answer us, Hayward. What the hell did you do to her?
Greenlee: Leave him alone!
Ryan: Come on. You're coming with me.
David: You're gonna hurt her! Get the hell out of my way!
Liza: Stop him!
Jesse: That is enough! Stop it! My God! Would you look at yourselves? What is wrong -- let -- let him go, Jake.
David: Thank you.
Jack: I want him arrested.
Tad: No, no --
David: On what grounds?
Jack: On what grounds?! I can think of a dozen charges.
Jesse: Take it easy, Jackson.
Greenlee: No charges.
Jesse: All right. This is how it's going to work. You are going with me. Tad, keep your eyes on the room until we get this straightened out.
Greenlee: You can't do this. It's my wedding.
Jesse: You need to sit down, all right? You've been through enough. Sit down, please.
David: You really need to get off your feet, Greenlee. It's all right.
Jesse: I promise you, I will bring him back if he hasn't broken any laws. Shall we go?
Greenlee: You can't do this.
David: It's all right. It's ok. Jake, you watch her. She had a spinal injury, major surgery. You saw the X-rays. She's recovering. But don't let a certain someone throw her over his shoulder trying to be some kind of a hero.
Jesse: Let's go.
Jack: I'm going with you.
Greenlee: Don't hurt him.
David: It's all right. I'll be back.
Scott: And we'll green up a sector that's long overdue. I think if we implement these changes, Chandler Enterprises will be ethical and profitable.
Adam: In keeping with your dream --
Scott: And the merit trust. I'm looking forward to working with J.R. to make these changes happen. What's the occasion?
Annie: You are never going to believe what I just saw on the news.
Adam: Well, I'm sure you'll enlighten us.
Annie: David Hayward is getting married.
Scott: Who was the victim?
Annie: Well, that's just it. Some mystery bride. This is big, huge. And David had the nerve to not invite us?
David: Last I checked, it wasn't against the law to save a woman's life.
Jack: You kept her a prisoner. He kept her a prisoner. He isolated her from her friends, her family, people who loved her. Now he's got her so damn brainwashed, she actually thinks she wants to marry him.
David: Hey, who knows? Maybe it's love.
Jack: No, what it is is a classic case of Stockholm syndrome. That's what it is.
David: Oh, come on. Greenlee wasn't being dragged down the aisle. You heard her yourself. She wants to marry me.
Jack: That's because she feels indebted to you. I don't.
Jake: Well, your pulse is fine, and you're not flushed. Are you in pain at all?
Greenlee: I'm fine.
Jake: Ok. I know this is hard for you, but you really just need to listen and just stay seated and not -- not make any sudden movements. Just breathe, ok?
Ryan: So, so she's ok?
Jake: Well, she's a whole lot better than dead.
Ryan: Greenlee, can -- can you -- can you please just try -- try to explain this to me?
Jake: Before you do all that, can I just have a word with you? Stay there.
Ryan: Hayward said that you saw the X-rays. You saw the X-rays. Did you know that she was alive all this time?
Jake: The answers are yes and no. Ok, yes, I saw the X-rays, but, no, I did not know she was alive, ok, because he presented them as somebody else's. He presented them as Nurse Gayle's.
Ryan: How was she? Is she as bad as Hayward says she is?
Jake: Well, based on what I saw -- I mean those records, the fact that she's walking and breathing and being, you know, completely Greenlee, it's -- it's a miracle.
Greenlee: This is my wedding, and you're treating me like a prisoner. If I want to go to David --
Tad: You can go to David. You go right ahead. But when you do, you remember one thing. Jesse's out there right now trying to put him in prison. I'm sorry. This is one hell of a homecoming. But one thing I really wish I understood is why you would do something like this to us.
Liza: Listen, if David has hurt you or manipulated you in any way, you can tell us because we can help you.
Greenlee: Why is everyone having a hard time believing I want this?
[Erica whispering in Ryan's ear]
Opal: Maybe it's 'cause you have no idea all the things David has done since you've been -- well, gone.
Amanda: He blackmailed me into living with him.
Krystal: Greenlee, he drugged me.
Amanda: He said my son was his even when he knew Jake was the father.
Opal: Yeah. Not to mention pretending to be dying.
Greenlee: May I have your attention, please? I should be dead, but I'm not because I wanted to live, I wanted to come back here, I wanted to come home. One person helped me get here. David fought with me every single step. Every setback, every victory, he was by my side. I know what David is. I know who he is. I'm not weak or brainwashed. I chose to live, I chose to come home, and I choose to marry David. I know how hard you fought him, how hard you fought to be together. You married a Chandler, so I'm sure you had to fight for your marriage, your choice. Every single one of us feels that we have the right to be with the person we choose no matter what anyone else thinks, no matter what the obstacles are. So why can't you give me that freedom? I've worked hard to get here, and I've made my choice. Anyone who can't get behind that can just leave.
Ryan: I'm not going anywhere. Would everyone leave, please, so I can be alone with Greenlee?
Greenlee: That's not what I meant. You don't have to go.
Marissa: You know what? I don't know you, but I do know my father. And I have been here too many times giving David the benefit of the doubt and gotten slammed. So whatever this is, I don't want to be a part of it.
J.R.: Let's go.
Opal: You know, I'm thrilled that you are alive, Greenlee. But I think this whole thing is just a terrible shame.
Greenlee: Don't go. Reverend --
Minister: You can call me when -- if you decide to go through with this. Prayer might be helpful.
Greenlee: Jake, you're my friend.
Jake: I am, honey, but -- [Sighs]
Adam: Well, what do you suggest, that we crash the wedding like those clowns at the White House dinner?
Scott: No, no, no. You and I, we still have to go over the financial projections for the new initiatives at Chandler. I think now would be a great time to get started on that report.
Adam: That's a great idea. Hmm?
Annie: Fine, fine. Well, I'm not really dressed for crunching numbers. So let me go change.
[Adam and Annie kiss, then she sneaks out of the house]
Jack: Jesse, with all due respect. I mean, come on. This is a no-brainer. You've got the Jane Doe corpse that he altered the DNA on to make us think that Greenlee was dead. Not the first time he'll be charged with abuse of a corpse, by the way. And there is one hell of an argument to be made for him holding my daughter against her will.
Jesse: Jackson, I understand you're upset --
Jesse: But you know as well as I do that we deal with evidence, we deal with fact --
Jack: Ah, come on, Jesse --
Jesse: We do not deal with emotions.
David: Yeah. What he said. And since we're talking about facts, what about the fact that I arranged your reunion with your daughter?
Jack: After you let me think she was dead for a year.
David: She nearly was. Was I supposed to give you false hope? It's a miracle she's even here.
Jack: A miracle which you will turn into a nightmare given the chance.
Jesse: Look, come on. Come on. That flash drive had two sets of fingerprints on it -- yours and Greenlee's now that we know she's back.
David: Ok, one more time. I have absolutely no reason whatsoever to want to take down Fusion. Now, as for Greenlee, if she chose to use that fail-safe on her own company, what crime has she committed? Now, come on. If I took an ax to my own house, would you arrest me?
Jack: An ax? Man, who cares -- can we get back to the business at hand? I want to talk about what he did to my daughter.
David: What I did to your daughter. You mean giving her the ability to walk again? I mean, don't you get it? A year ago today, your daughter was a crumbled heap of flesh on the side of a freezing river. Today she's a beautiful, strong woman, someone who should be celebrated, not pitied. You know, Jack, you should be in the chapel right now enjoying your daughter's company, welcoming her home. But for whatever reason, you feel it's more important to be trying to take me down right here and now.
Jack: I've already welcomed my daughter home. Now I'm just trying to keep her safe from you.
David: All right. Look, let's just be honest here. I have no doubt that you're overjoyed your daughter's alive. But what really pisses you off is that she's making her own decisions about this. Now, look, if you love your daughter so damn much, my advice to you is this: Get out of her way because Greenlee is gonna make her own decisions with or without you.
Ryan: Oh, hold on. Wait. Just -- just -- just -- hands off this time, ok? I just -- I just want to talk.
Greenlee: I've said all I have to say, but no one wants to believe it. No one understands.
Ryan: We're trying, Greenlee.
Greenlee: No, you're not. David's been at my side from the very beginning. He helped me fight to live, to walk. He held my hand. He watched me cry. He was there for me when everyone else was --
Ryan: When everyone else was -- was what?
Greenlee: There was no one else but David.
Ryan: Oh, ok. So you're marrying him out of gratitude.
Greenlee: We fell in love. That's why I'm here tonight.
Ryan: Really. To marry the man that you love.
Greenlee: Yes. You think I'm wrong, brainwashed, drugged, under some sort of evil Hayward spell?
Ryan: Tonight should have been our one-year anniversary, Greenlee. And the first time that I lay eyes on you, the first time that I know that you survived this crash, you're standing at the altar with another man. We were gonna spend the rest of our lives together, and now you're marrying another man. What is going on? Why? What happened? Help me understand. Please, Greenlee, you haven't even talked to me. You haven't even asked me how I feel.
Greenlee: I understand if you're hurt.
Ryan: I love you. God. Greenlee, do you understand that? I love you, and I never stopped.
David: Now, unless you have something to arrest me for, I'd like to go save my bride from the angry mob.
Jesse: We'll be watching.
David: You do that.
Jack: You'll be watching? You're kidding me, right? This man's committed enough crimes, he should never see the light of day again, Jesse!
David: Oh, by the way, you're welcome for saving your daughter's life. Oh, did the angry mob send you up here to see if I've been cuffed yet?
Krystal: Uh, no, no, no. Actually, uh, everybody's gone. Even the preacher took off, but I decided to stick around.
David: Well, that's an interesting choice, considering you weren't even invited.
Krystal: Ah! And I know why.
Marissa: It's just more of his insanity. I'm done with my father. There is no way that I can have a relationship with a man who wants to blow up everything and everyone around him.
J.R.: Well, he had some help this time, didn't he? I can't believe Greenlee's back, alive. A crazy way to make an entrance. Ohh!
Marissa: Are you ok?
J.R.: Yeah. Those pews were like rock. I need an aspirin.
Marissa: Are you sure that that's all it is?
J.R.: I'm fine.
Marissa: I'm sorry if I freak every time you sneeze or have a twitch. I just -- I can't help but worry.
J.R.: I'm not only fine, I'm starving. [Chuckles]
Marissa: Ok, I'll see what kind of a feast I can order up.
Erica: Oh, no, no, no. Don't -- don't go in there. They're in there alone.
Jack: What --
Erica: Ryan and Greenlee, just the two of them. I know you want to go in there, and you want to talk to Greenlee. You want to hold her and tell her how much you love her, but Ryan and Greenlee, they really need this time.
Jack: Greenlee. What the hell was Greenlee thinking about marrying David Hayward? I got to tell you, though, it is so Greenlee. She is her own worst enemy. No matter what her reasons, she ends up hurting herself.
Erica: Maybe you have to trust that Ryan and Greenlee will figure this out for themselves. They'll remember why they fell in love, and they'll realize that they are still in love. Shall we?
Ryan: I stood on -- on that embankment, and they told me that -- that your body had been swept away by the current. They said that, and they said that there was no chance that you could have ever survived that. No -- no chance. But I kept looking. I kept looking, I guess, because I just couldn't accept that you were gone. I couldn't -- I couldn't believe that what we had could be swept away by a river. So this -- this past year, I've just been trying to accept that -- that you were gone. I've been trying to figure out how I could live my life without you, trying to dig myself out of the pain. [Exhales] And here you are in a wedding gown getting ready to marry another man. So -- so why, Greenlee? Wh -- wh -- and I get gratitude. I understand. I understand that. I really do, or that you have some kind of bond with him or something like that. But what we had, we were going to join our souls, Greenlee. And now you just pretend like we had nothing?
Greenlee: I know what it's like to lose the person you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with, to have something you feel is so right and good and strong that nothing can hurt you, only to find out that your future goes over a cliff.
Ryan: Is that what this is about? Is th -- is that why you're pretending -- there's nothing between us anymore? Is that why you're marrying David Hayward because you never forgave me? If that's what it is, tell me, please. If it's something else, tell me. Tell me. Whatever it is, I want to do whatever I have to do. You're here and you're alive, and I love you. So just -- just tell me whatever it is, and I'm gonna make it right.
Annie: Oh, my God. You're dead.
Greenlee: And you're supposed to be in a loony bin.
Annie: Whatever problems I faced before, they've all been resolved.
Ryan: We're trying to have a conversation here, please, Annie. Can -- can --
Annie: Wait, wait. Wait! You're David's mystery bride?
Greenlee: I don't believe you were invited.
Ryan: Can you just get out, please? Can you go?
Annie: No. Not until somebody tells me what the hell is going on here.
Ryan: Just get out. Please --
Annie: I want an explanation.
Ryan: Greenlee doesn't owe you or anybody else an explanation, ok? And the last person I'm gonna let anywhere near her is you.
Annie: Get off of me.
David: The reason you weren't invited, Krystal, is quite simple. It was an oversight.
Krystal: [Laughs] That's bull. You invited people who hate you. I guess you think that makes you brave, but you didn't invite me, because I know you better than just about anyone.
David: You really think so, huh?
Krystal: You know, you are the most selfish man that I have ever known. But this, marrying Greenlee, I just -- I get the feeling that this wasn't your typical manipulation.
David: Greenlee's gonna be my wife. I want her to be happy.
Krystal: Oh! I can't believe I'm saying this knowing you as well as I do, but I just swear, this whole marriage thing is more about Greenlee than you. And you're doing it all for her.
Annie: Where did Greenlee come from? What -- what is happening, and why is she marrying David? Did you stop the wedding? You did, didn't you?
Ryan: Just -- just back off, please. Annie, back off and get out.
Annie: What is your problem?
Ryan: My problem is your history with Greenlee. That's my problem, Annie.
Annie: That died when she died, all right? I am married to Adam now. I am happy and stable and -- happy. I don't care that Greenlee is alive. Actually, I'm glad that Greenlee's alive. It's one less thing you can try to blame on me, even though I was nowhere near that crash.
Ryan: And neither was I because you had a gun to my head.
Annie: It's over, Ryan. Let it go. It looks like Greenlee has moved on herself. Why can't we just be civilized?
Ryan: Because I know you, and I know you're acting all brave on the outside, but you're probably freaking out inside, maybe even ready to grab a sharp object and repeat the history that you claim doesn't matter.
David: Greenlee, what happened? Did you talk with Ryan?
Greenlee: What did I think was going to happen tonight? Why did I think he would be so crushed he'd walk away? I wanted him humiliated, ruined, and the only one humiliated was me.
David: That's not true.
Greenlee: Why didn't you warn me?
David: I tried to get you to consider everything very carefully.
Greenlee: Well, you should have tried harder. You should have known this would happen.
David: Did you really think Ryan would let you go without a fight?
Greenlee: [Sighs] I've ruined everything. Maybe you should have just left me by that river.
David: Don't say that.
Greenlee: Tonight was supposed to -- I was going to be strong, in control, totally in charge. Now what? I don't know what to do, what to say.
David: Well, why don't you start with what you really want?
Greenlee: I want to marry you. But even the minister couldn't get out of here fast enough.
David: That's all right. We'll get him back.
Greenlee: You'll still marry me?
Greenlee: You're not saying that just to be nice?
David: When have I ever done anything just to be nice?
[Greenlee laughs and sobs]
David: I'd be proud to be your husband, Greenlee, to protect you as my wife. And we can still get married if you want. But first, I think you need to take some time to think about what you really want.
Greenlee: [Sighs] It was supposed to be so easy.
David: Well, it wasn't. And there's a reason for that. So forget about winning and payback and being in control. If you want to know what to do next, figure out why Ryan is getting to you so much.
Annie: When will you get it, Ryan? I live a fabulous new life now. All that past history with Greenlee is just water under the bridge. Pun intended. The Greenlee stuff doesn't bother me anymore. I'm actually really grateful for it. If she hadn't come between us, I never would have found a true love. Ok, I can't say I'm not enjoying this just a little. I am sorry. Greenlee back from the dead? And instead of the two of you running slow-mo into each other's arms with the heavens singing from above, she's marrying David Hayward? What!
Ryan: Shut up and get out.
Annie: Oh, I always thought you and Greenlee tried a little too hard for that soul mate thing.
[Annie clicks tongue]
Annie: Anyway, don't feel too bad, Ryan. Just think of what they say. Time heals all wounds.
Erica: I want you just to focus on how wonderful it is to be able to say those words, "talk some sense into Greenlee." I mean, no matter what the craziness David entangles Greenlee in, your daughter is alive. My goodness, that's a miracle.
Jack: Yeah, but with Hayward involved, a miracle can turn into a nightmare like that.
Erica: No, no, no. Everything's going to be fine because Ryan's with Greenlee, and he loves her. And he will bring her back. And then they are gonna find the love that has been waiting for them.
Jack: I just don't get it. Greenlee didn't say a word to me about this.
Erica: You knew that Greenlee was alive before this. Oh. So that special celebration that you were planning, that -- that wasn't for a new woman in your life. That was for Greenlee.
Jack: Yes. Yes, it was.
Erica: How long have you known that Greenlee was alive?
Jack: After I left you, David called me and said he had an urgent matter to talk to me about. So I went out to Wildwind. And there she was. But it was already too late to help her.
Tad: We shouldn't have left. We might have been needed.
Liza: Oh, come on. I'm sure Jesse is handling this.
Opal: And Ryan! I mean, the look on his face. The be-all and end-all of his life suddenly comes back to life. And the first glimpse he has of her is Greenlee pledging her troth to Dr. Dave.
Tad: Ma, no troth was pledged.
Opal: Yeah, whatever.
Liza: Wait a second. You know, the Fusion break-ins. I bet Greenlee was in on it with David.
Amanda: Why would Greenlee go after her own company? She loves Fusion.
Liza: Yeah. And why would she keep being alive a secret? And why would she decide to tell everybody by staging a farce wedding to David?
Tad: That's a slam-dunk. It's not Greenlee, it's David. He's messing with her mind. He's just trying to use her to inflict maximum damage. Am I right?
Jake: Is there any other kind of dip?
Tad: Since when are you more interested in food than David Hayward?
Jake: Oh, hey, don't get me -- don't get me started. I hate David. I hate every bone in his body. But I saw Greenlee's X-rays. I saw the charts.
Opal: You did?
Jake: They're the same charts that David presented as Nurse Gayle's. Look, I hope his biscuit roasts in hell. Trust me, I do. But for the first time in his miserable, rancid life, he went beyond extreme, and for very good reason. Greenlee should be dead. She should be very, very dead. And she's not, and it's because of him.
David: It'll be all right. I promise you. Whatever you want to do, ok?
Ryan: Greenlee and I aren't done.
David: If you need me for anything, call me.
Scott: Hey, have you seen Annie?
Adam: I thought she was working with you in the study.
Scott: No, I'm still waiting.
Adam: She went to the wedding.
Adam: I'd better get there before she does too much damage.
[Annie chuckles softly]
Annie: I went to the wedding, yes, but there was no wedding. Greenlee is alive.
Adam: Greenlee Smythe?
Annie: Yup. Apparently, David saved her, brought her back from the brink, and now she's marrying him out of gratitude or something.
Scott: But the wedding didn't happen?
Annie: Well, Ryan was there. So what do you think? He warned me to stay away from the bitch. D-don't worry. It's just a figure of speech. [Chuckles] I am so over all that stuff from the past. I mean, it's true. Greenlee was a threat then but not now. I am living my perfect dream life now. I couldn't care less if Greenlee's back.
Jack: I wanted to have Hayward arrested for all the things that he'd done, but Greenlee made it very clear that if I interfered in the least, she would stay dead to me. I already lost her once. I couldn't risk that.
Erica: Of course not.
Jack: But why would she hurt Ryan like this?
Erica: Maybe she was afraid that Ryan had moved on and that she had to protect herself. And now she knows that she doesn't. Jack, you made me see the light about Ryan, and I ended it. So now he's free. And he's going to really make sure that -- that Greenlee sees the happy ending that's waiting for both of them.
Ryan: You didn't answer my question.
Greenlee: What question was that?
Ryan: Is -- is this payback? I rode off a cliff, and I let you think that I was dead, and you said that you forgave me, but did you? I mean, is that what this is about?
Ryan: Can you please tell me, then, because I'm really trying to wrap my head around this? I mean, it -- it's a miracle that you're here, that you're alive. But this is how you choose to tell me? By marrying David? And not just on any day, but on the day that was supposed to be ours. Greenlee, on the day that we would have started our life together. A year -- a year is a long time, and a lot has happened. I -- I -- I get that. There's no doubt. But there is one thing that hasn't changed, and that is my love for you. Greenlee, I love you. And I know that you love me, too. I know you can deny it, you can hide it, but I know that it's there. Did you see the moon tonight? It was full! It's our moon, Greenlee, and it brought us together again just like it did before. And, honestly, there's nothing that can stop us from starting our life together right now. Marry me tonight.
