Angie: I don't care if you like it or not, it's time for you to get with the program. So we understand each other, right?
Jake: Hey, what a day, huh? You heard about Greenlee, right?
Angie: Yeah, Jesse called to tell me. The shock hasn't really sunk in yet.
Jake: Mm-hmm. Well, now I guess we know who he's been taking care of in Gloucester all this time. Sorry. What you doing?
Angie: It's a press release about the janitorial strike.
Jake: That's gonna be messy. 'Cause it's a janitorial strike. Listen, I'm actually here to help. Because I know, you know, if it's midnight and they walk out and they don't clean up, mop, and take away the medical waste, we have to turn people away. You know, it's not gonna -- let me ask you something. What do they want? Why are they striking in the first place?
Angie: They're not going to. I handled it.
Angie: I settled the strike. Now, if you don't mind, I've got work to do.
Marissa: We know that your resistance is down. Chills and fever, that is like classic flu.
J.R.: In a classic cancer patient.
Marissa: Ok, there's no reason to be negative. We got on top of the problem right away. Dr. Kahn is all over it. And soon the test results will be back, and we can get you home and go to sleep.
J.R.: I can't sleep. Remember? It's how this whole thing started.
Marissa: Nobody can sleep with the flu. That's what all those cold remedies are for, right?
David: Greenlee? What the hell are you doing just walking into my house?
Jesse: Search warrant.
David: On what grounds?
Jesse: Girl's missing for a year, she finally shows up doing whatever you say. And, come on, with your history of doping women, I'd call that presumptive grounds to look for the drugs you're controlling her with.
Annie: I tried to talk some sense into Ryan. I told him to just walk away. Can you imagine? Greenlee tries to marry David right in front of him. And on Valentine's Day.
Scott: Greenlee -- alive?
Adam: Hayward's really topped himself this time.
Colby: Are you serious? Greenlee didn't die?
Adam: She might have been better off if she had. No, she's marrying Hayward instead.
Colby: Oh, my God. Does Ryan know?
Annie: Oh, Ryan was there, saw the whole thing unravel. I'm not sure there will be a wedding now after all.
Colby: Wow. So Greenlee lives. And how does that make you feel?
Annie: It doesn't remotely affect me in the slightest.
Colby: Uh, Dad, did you make sure the guns are all locked up?
Ryan: 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 is a long time and a lot has happened, I get that. There's no doubt. But there's 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.
Greenlee: Marry you?
Ryan: We'll go find the minister, and we'll do tonight what we were supposed to do a year ago.
Greenlee: No. I can't.
Ryan: I love you, Greenlee. I love you. Do you understand that? I never stopped loving you.
Adam: There's no need to lock up any guns. You behave yourself, young lady.
Colby: It was a joke, Dad.
Annie: That's all right. It's all right. Any trouble I had with Greenlee was in another lifetime. Literally for her. She means nothing to me now that I'm Mrs. Adam Chandler. Mmm. [Giggles]
Adam: Would you come on? I have something I want to talk to you about.
Colby: Was it my imagination or was she just twitchy like a fish on a hook?
Adam: That must have come as quite a shock, seeing Greenlee risen from the dead.
Annie: Sure. I mean, who wouldn't be surprised?
Adam: Yeah. Well, I think under the circumstances, there's not really any need for you to finish that report by tomorrow.
Annie: Adam, I'm fine. This Greenlee thing is no big deal. Ok? I'll have the report to you by tomorrow morning.
Adam: I look forward to reading it.
Adam: But now I have a meeting with the LACD Council President.
Annie: Ooh, good luck.
Jake: What is going on? You want to tell me what's going on?
Angie: You know what, Jake, you're getting on my last nerve.
Angie: Listen, I have had a high stress day in a high-pressure job, and I need to get out this press release, ok?
Jake: No, it's not ok. It's not ok. Listen, I'm very happy about the strike. That's fantastic news. But I'm worried about you. Is that ok?
Jake: Look, no, forget it. Forget it. Listen, take a deep breath. We're gonna talk about good things, like congratulations you settled the strike. I mean, that's incredible. Who does that? How'd you do that?
Angie: You don't want to know.
Dr. Kahn: It looks like this round of chemo isn't working.
Marissa: Are you sure?
Dr. Kahn: Too sure to keep it up. All it's doing right now is slamming you with debilitating side effects. We have to stop.
J.R.: So what's the next step? Stronger drugs?
Dr. Kahn: Bone marrow transplant.
Marissa: Which involves what?
Dr. Kahn: We basically wipe out your own bone marrow to make sure we destroy all the cancer cells, then we replace your marrow with a donor's.
Marissa: Well, he can have mine.
Dr. Kahn: It needs to be a close genetic match. We'll test you, of course. You might by chance be a match, but it's more likely we'll find someone in J.R.'s immediate family.
J.R.: What about my own bone marrow? The batch that we saved before the chemotherapy?
Dr. Kahn: I'm afraid we found traces of a hepatitis virus there, so we can't use it now.
J.R.: What if there is no match in my family?
Marissa: There's got to be someone there with the right genes.
Dr. Kahn: We'll still get you on a national registry right away. But these things take time.
J.R.: I don't want anyone to know.
Marissa: They're gonna have to.
J.R.: Not tonight.
Adam: Thank you for taking the time to talk to me today, Councilman Garcetti.
Councilman: Well, I'm very impressed with the green improvements you've made in your factory in Los Angeles.
Adam: Well, my nephew convinced me that green is the way to go these days.
Councilman: Well, he's right. You know, it's about family and making the world a better place for generations to come.
Adam: Well, you don't have to sell me on the importance of family.
Councilman: Good to see you, Mr. Chandler.
Adam: Good to see you.
Councilman: Take care.
Adam: Thank you. [Yawns]
Winifred: This just came for you, Mr. Chandler.
Adam: Thank you. [Adam sighs as he looks at J.R.'s latest pathology report]
David: Did you find anything, master detective? Or are you waiting for me to snap and tell you where the beating heart is under the floorboards?
Jesse: You did a pretty good job, Hayward. I didn't find anything interesting.
David: And that just ticks you off, doesn't it?
Jesse: Not really. I'm a patient man. You might think that you've gotten away with trying to bring Fusion down, but it ain't over till it's over.
David: What, is that supposed to send shivers down my spine?
Jesse: Well, believe it or not, I don't spend much time worrying about your shivers or your spine, for that -- matter. I do intend to question Greenlee now that she's back.
David: Fine. Knock yourself out. But you might want to remember that I'm the one that brought her here, saved her life. Do you really think Greenlee's gonna give you anything to use against me? Not that I've done anything wrong, mind you.
Jesse: Well, she's down in the chapel with Ryan right now. Who's to say what her story's gonna be once they reconnect?
David: Well, like I said, I haven't done anything to worry about.
Jesse: Well, I've got a huge file on you that begs to differ with that. One day you're gonna slip up. Guess who's gonna be there waiting? [Clicks tongue]
David: Yeah, well, here's to those huge files that mean absolutely nothing.
Jesse: Why don't you do us all a favor, David, and just find another town to live in, another hospital. Nobody here really likes you. Think about it.
[David sighs as he sits down]
Greenlee: Don't you get it? This is all for me and David. I'm marrying him.
Ryan: Why? You don't love him.
Greenlee: Don't tell me how I feel. You have no idea what I've been through. David saved my life. He spent hours at my bedside while everyone, and I mean everyone, was going happily on with their lives.
Ryan: Greenlee, we thought you were dead.
Ryan: Well, David gave me the strength to keep on living. How do you think we fell in love?
Ryan: I don't believe you did. It's me that you've always loved, Greenlee. And I've never stopped loving you. And nothing, not even death, can change that. Marry me right now.
Greenlee: I can't.
Ryan: Why not?
Greenlee: You honestly don't know?
Ryan: No, I don't know, Greenlee. Please tell me.
Greenlee: Because you didn't wait. You didn't wait.
Greenlee: You want to hold a grudge, go for it, but I'm moving on. To my fantastic future. You seriously need to get a grip.
Annie: And you need to stay away from Ryan. [Clears throat]
Greenlee: It must be hell to be you. Ryan remembers Kendall, he remembers me, hell, he remembers the way he likes his toast, but you, nothing. Maybe because you're not so special. Maybe because there's nothing about you worth remembering. It must be hell to be you. You seriously need to get a grip. To get a grip. To get a grip. Get a grip.
Scott: Annie. You ok?
Annie: Of course.
Scott: How's the report going?
Annie: Oh, it's -- I'm not -- I'm not ready for anybody to see it yet.
Scott: Ok. Well, I am impressed you're trying to do anything this ambitious right now. Are you sure that you're ok? Greenlee popping back up like this, it had to have thrown you.
Annie: I wish everyone would stop talking to me like Greenlee is some sore spot. Ok? I'm fine. I forgot about that stuff ages ago.
Scott: Ok. Ok, well, if you need anything, if you want to talk, you know where to find me.
Scott: What are you doing? Hmm?
Colby: Treating myself. In honor of Greenlee's return, a whole pint of Rocky Road.
Scott: I didn't realize you cared so much about Greenlee.
Colby: Oh, I do now.
Scott: So why eat on the stairs?
Colby: Well, I don't want to miss the show.
Scott: And what show would that be?
Colby: Well, as soon as the reality of Greenlee sets in, Annie is gonna come screaming through that room with her head spinning like a radar dish.
Scott: Don't you think you're blowing this just a little bit out of proportion?
Colby: Mm-mmm. Greenlee is the reason Annie ended up in a padded cell in the first place. And I can't wait to see what the Greenster is gonna do to her this time around.
Ryan: Wait -- wait for what? Greenlee, you wanted me to somehow wait for you to come back from the dead?
Greenlee: It's not about me dead or alive. It's about you betraying even the memory of me.
Ryan: I cherished the memory of you, Greenlee.
Greenlee: So Kendall abandons Fusion and what do you do? You stand by while my worst enemy takes it over.
Ryan: Erica didn't take it over. Kendall gave it to her.
Greenlee: Fusion was the greatest achievement of my life. My company, my child, my dream.
Ryan: It was you. It was you who told David where the flash drive was that brought Fusion down.
Greenlee: Of course, it was me. I'd rather see it destroyed than in Erica's hands. How could you let Kendall give it to her? How could you knowing what it meant to me? I thought I could trust you and Kendall both. Clearly I couldn't. In so many ways.
Ryan: So you know. You know about what happened between me and Kendall.
Greenlee: That's not all I know.
Scott: I can't believe you're talking like this.
Colby: Yeah, because honesty is a pretty rare commodity around this house, huh?
Scott: No, this vendetta that you have against Annie is getting out of control.
Colby: It's not a vendetta, Scott. It's karma. For Annie.
Scott: You're actually hoping that she goes crazy again.
Colby: If she does lose it, I won't have to push you into seducing her anymore. Not that I had to do that much pushing.
Colby: The second she wigs out on Greenlee, she'll be locked up forever.
Scott: And you wish this on her?
Colby: Dad will divorce her, and J.R. will come home again and all will be right in our world. What's not to like?
Marissa: I'm sure that we'll find a match. And once you have --
J.R.: Stop it. I can't deal with any forced enthusiasm tonight. I'm tired. I just want to go to bed.
Marissa: Just tell me what you're thinking, J.R. Don't lock me out.
J.R.: It's just -- we have to understand -- we have to prepare ourselves in case --
J.R.: I --
Marissa: No, no, no. I won't.
J.R.: I need you to look at the reality of this with me. Ok? You want to know what I'm feeling? I'm feeling isolated knowing that I'm running out of options, and the woman that I love refuses to acknowledge it. I need you to be on the same page with me. Not as Ms. Positive or cheerleader, but just the two of us facing whatever's going to come.
Marissa: Come on, come on. Let's sit down.
Marissa: What can I do for you?
J.R.: Did you get that sedative refilled? I'm gonna need help sleeping tonight.
Marissa: Ok. Yeah, I think it's just down at the pharmacy. I'll go pick it up. I'll be right back.
Adam: Where do you think you're going?
Woman: Angie. Congratulations on getting the strike to settle.
Man: The board's been a little worried, but labor relations obviously suits you.
Angie: Thank you. You can assure the board I'll do my best.
Jesse: Hey, beautiful. You will never guess what David Hayward tried -- what's the matter? You ok?
Angie: Just another long, hard day. I got the janitor strike called off finally.
Jesse: Well, look at you. Congratulations. Let's go celebrate your victory, grab a bite, huh? Make the best of a so far lousy Valentine's Day.
Angie: Oh, baby, I've still got some political mopping up to do around here.
Jesse: Well, actually, you know, that's perfect. I still have some stuff to do at the station. I'll finish that up, grab a table at ConFusion. Baby, it does not matter how late you show up. We need to spend some time together. All right? Focus on the good stuff.
Angie: Ok. Why don't you call me when you're ready?
Jesse: I will. As soon as I leave the station.
Angie: Ok. What are you doing here?
David: Starting to feel right at home again.
Greenlee: My body wasn't even in the grave, and you were crawling into Kendall's bed. I thought she and Zach were together no matter what. Regardless of what he was going through with Reese, I thought they were in pretty good shape.
Ryan: They've always loved each other, Greenlee. They still do.
Greenlee: And I thought you were in love with me. At least that's what I thought until I went flying off the road. Then it was any port in a storm for you, wasn't it?
Ryan: I was devastated that you were gone, Greenlee. People in that kind of pain, they make mistakes. We did, I did. I made a mistake. Ok? And we realized it, and we worked through it. And we got on with our lives.
Greenlee: I guess I shouldn't be too surprised there. It's not the first time Kendall's played the grief sex card.
Ryan: We realized that we should never have gone there, Greenlee.
Greenlee: I can almost accept that.
Ryan: That's all it was.
Greenlee: A simple past mistake? Over and done with? Then how the hell did you end up in Erica's bed?
Ryan: I'm not gonna lie to you, Greenlee. I'm gonna tell you anything that you want to know.
Greenlee: I assume you saw that video I left for you before the accident. [Chuckles] Opal freaked me out enough with her tea leaves to make that little just-in-case farewell for you.
Ryan: I saw it. It ripped my heart out.
Greenlee: Did it really?
Ryan: Yes, it did. I watched it again a few weeks ago.
Greenlee: You remember the part where I told you not to spend your life grieving me? To move on, to find someone else? I didn't mean with my best friend and my worst enemy, and I sure as hell didn't mean within weeks of my death.
Ryan: Whatever I did, Greenlee, I never stopped loving you. And anybody that knows me knows that, including Erica. She knows that, that my feelings for you, they never died. Yes, we got close. And I understand that you hate that, but it didn't come close to the love that I have for you. That I always will have for you.
Greenlee: Don't you get it? Don't you realize what it was like for me to find out how quickly you could just dump me into your past?
Ryan: I guess just part of me was trying to forget you, because it was too painful to remember you.
Greenlee: You want to know what pain is? Pain is being bedridden. It's grueling physical therapy. It's working so hard to make a miraculous return home. To set up a dinner just for us only to find out that you and Erica used my big moment for you. That was my dinner for us. And you used it to seduce that witch.
Ryan: You didn't come back to marry David. You came back for me.
David: Yes, this is definitely it -- the best seat in town. You know, I gotta tell you. I really thought that I could just walk away from all of this, but it's like running into an ex-lover and falling in love all over again. I just didn't realize how much I missed the old girl.
Angie: I heard you were getting married tonight, actually.
David: Yeah, that was put on hold.
Angie: Hmm. So it is more important for you to be sitting in my chair than Greenlee being alive again.
David: I never said that.
Angie: I saw her medical records after we all thought that the patient you were taking care of was Gayle. Is Greenlee even ready for a wedding like this after the surgery she's had?
David: I never would have let her go through with it unless I was absolutely certain that she was medically safe.
Angie: Oh, I see. So I guess Greenlee was the one who decided not to go through with it.
David: Aren't you gonna thank me?
Angie: For what?
David: Oh, come on, Angela. Don't be coy. I know what you did. You strong-armed the union head into dropping his demands and settling. And you did it by using the information I gave you about his private life. That's called blackmail.
Angie: Get out of my office. Get out!
David: You feel dirty now, don't you? Welcome to the dark side.
Scott: You don't wish insanity on anyone.
Colby: Well, almost anyone.
Scott: You know, Colby, the person who's ill isn't the only one that suffers. Did you ever stop and think about how it would affect the rest of the family? Adam, who you claim you want to protect. And what about Emma?
Colby: No matter what happens, I can look out for my dad. And Ryan was taking a lot better care of Emma when Annie wasn't around. I'm pretty sure Greenlee's gonna take care of business for all of us. All we have to do is sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
Greenlee: What are you doing in my apartment?
Annie: Waiting for you.
Greenlee: How did you get in here?
Annie: I told your super we were friends. And that I had a surprise for you.
Greenlee: Well, props to you, 'cause I'm definitely surprised. What is this, Annie? What do you want?
Annie: I want you to find your own man and leave my husband alone. You are still the same woman who destroyed my wedding. And you are still the same woman who tried to blow up my life. You know what, it didn't work back then, Greenlee, and I promise you it will not work now. [Sighs] [Sighs]
Adam: Don't bother denying it. I know all about tonight's diagnosis.
Adam: Have you forgotten that I'm on the board of directors at the hospital? I have standing orders to send me any reports with your name on them.
J.R.: Well, forget about all the laws that breaks. But this happens to be none of your damn business.
Adam: Your oncologist is a lightweight. I'm gonna bring in some of my specialists.
J.R.: No, you're not.
Adam: I'm gonna get you a donor. Everybody in the family's gonna be tested. Skye, Hayley, Colby. And of course, we'll get you to the head of all the national lists.
J.R.: Dad, I'm gonna handle this my way.
Adam: Oh, fine place that's gotten you so far. Now, you should have told me the moment you were diagnosed.
J.R.: Why? So you could try to take over my life like you're doing right now?
Adam: So I could save your life, J.R.. We've lost precious time. We should have been more aggressive from the beginning.
J.R.: Oh, so now you want to take over my death, too?
Adam: The first thing you're gonna do is stop talking about dying.
J.R.: All right, Dad, you know what, please. I just happen to not be feeling very well tonight. So can you go? Can you leave? Can you leave me to what's left of my life?
Adam: No. No, son, I can't.
Angie: I have nothing to apologize to you for.
David: Are you kidding? I'm not waiting for an apology. I already had to wait months for you to use those files I gave you. As far as I'm concerned, you've already been too damned ethical.
Angie: What would you know about ethics?
David: You see, now that is the Angie Hubbard I've come to know. Sitting on your high horse. And because of that, I was worried that you were gonna toss all that juicy ammunition. But you came through for me, Angie. I'm proud of you. You know, it's also come to my attention that the perfect Angie Hubbard has dropped the ball a few times, 'causing the board to meet behind your back and talk about a replacement.
Angie: I settled a critical work stoppage.
David: [Chuckles] Yeah. Yeah, the bloom's gonna fade on that rose rather quickly. You see, there are a lot of things around here that still need to be dealt with -- unnecessary medical testing, drug company payoffs. You see, there's at least a dozen time bombs just ready to go off around here. Fortunately, I found a lot of dirt to use against them.
Angie: I won't be using your dirt.
David: You're right. No, you won't. I'm gonna clean things up once I'm back on the job.
Angie: Don't get it twisted. If you think you're gonna take this job back after all I've done.
David: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I definitely am. You've worked really hard, Angela. But you're just not good at hiding your conniving.
Angie: Like you.
David: Oh, you've got that right. You see, I know at least that when you blackmail someone, you don't leave a trail. No proof that people could use against you later. No chance of embarrassing yourself or the hospital, of course.
Angie: I don't know why I'm giving you the time of day. I really have no idea what you're talking about.
David: I have a recording of it, Angela. Of your phone call to the union chief putting the muscle on him.
Angie: You're so full of it.
David: Mm-mmm. You see, he's become a friend of mine, well, in a matter of speaking, ever since I showed him how much dirt I had on him. And he called me after you strong-armed him. He let me listen to your clumsy performance. "It's time you get with the program." [Laughs] Oh, that one just cracked me up.
Angie: You know, I just -- I was just playing hardball.
David: Right. Yeah.
Angie: I mean, we disc -- he agreed to settle. It was a negotiation.
David: Right. You have 48 hours to resign, naming me your next replacement. You do that, and I'll give you a glowing recommendation at another hospital. You refuse, and the board gets a copy of that extortion-laden phone call. It's a good deal, Doctor. I suggest you take it. I'm gonna get the job anyway. So I guess you won't be needing this any longer. Hmm? Unless of course you want to use it as a little memento of the time you got to play with the big kids.
[David drops nameplate]
Greenlee: It wasn't for you. I didn't come back for you.
Ryan: The dinner party setup?
Greenlee: It was my attempt at softening the blow of me marrying David. It wasn't for us. It was just to let you down easy.
Ryan: Our original marriage started out as a marriage of convenience. That is what your marriage to David was supposed to be. It's all to punish me.
Greenlee: You deserve to be punished, I'll say that.
Ryan: The thing is, our marriage started to mean something to us. It grew into something real. Something incredible. Something that couldn't die. Something that is still there. And you can't walk away from it.
Jake: Knock knock.
Angie: Jake, I'm busy. Go away!
Jake: But I miss you. Hey. Ang, look. I just want to say that whatever it is, you know, whatever the matter is --
Angie: There is no way out of this. Every choice is wrong.
Jake: Hold on a second. Hold on a second. There's no way out of what? Talk to me. I'm good with things like this. I can help. I can help.
Angie: I'm going to resign.
J.R.: I don't want your help. I don't want your doctors. And I don't want your pity.
Adam: This has nothing to do with pity.
J.R.: No, I want you to go.
Adam: Too bad. Because I'm gonna fight you until I wear you down. And when I'm through fighting you, I'm gonna fight for you. I will not let you die.
Scott: How's it going?
Annie: The report is coming together slowly but surely. I should have something for you to read pretty soon.
Scott: Great. Great. Can I get you anything? You want some coffee, tea?
Annie: Uh, just some Greenlee. Thanks. Green tea, I mean. Sorry.
Colby: I'm doing research on an article I'm writing for psychiatric care for former patients. Yes. And I was wondering if someone there at Oak Haven could help me out with something.
Greenlee: God, the ego on you. Who the hell do you think you are?
Ryan: You can't bury your feelings for me, Greenlee. You can't. And you can't pretend that you have genuine feelings for Hayward.
Greenlee: Wrong on both counts. I don't have feelings for you, and I love David. I'm going to marry him.
Ryan: No, you're not. You're not. At some point you're gonna realize that you still love me as much as I love you. And you won't be able to marry him.
Greenlee: Just watch me.
[Greenlee walks out of the chapel while Ryan smiles]
