Colby: Not enough heat at the gatehouse?
Annie: I asked him to spend the night.
Colby: Hmm. I'm surprised you made him sleep on the couch.
Adam: What is it? Are you all right?
J.R.: I'm fine. It's you I'm worried about.
Jake: I don't know. I've looked every single place in this house. Where is this tape?
Tad: Well, we didn't find the coffin he sleeps in. Maybe the tape's in -- you already checked that.
Jake: Yeah, you'd think with all the blackmailing he does, he'd have a room that's just dedicated to extortion material.
[Cell phone rings]
Jake: Hey, yeah, we're still searching.
Angie: Jake, stop ripping the house apart. Listen, I spent the entire night thinking about this. Now, resigning is my only option.
Jake: No, no, no. We're gonna find the tape, ok?
Angie: Ah. It won't change things. I still sunk to David's level to settle the strike, and I have to take responsibility, face the consequences.
[David regains consciousness tied up in a chair]
Erica: David. Good morning. Was last night as good for you as it was for me?
David: What do you want, Erica?
Ryan: Morning, sleepyhead.
Greenlee: Where did you drag me to?
Ryan: Take a look around. Do you remember? This place is where our life will begin again.
J.R.: You were up till dawn on the phone. Did you get in contact with any bone marrow experts?
Adam: About 25 or so.
Adam: I've ordered every global business partner we have to start a bone marrow registry right there in their companies.
J.R.: Oh. We'll be able to find a donor from all those people.
Adam: Oh, yeah. It's more like a backup. I'm confident that we can find a donor for you within our family. No.
J.R.: Uncle Palmer?
Adam: Uh-huh. I had to turn over every stone in Europe for him to slither out, but I would give him the mansion if he could help you.
J.R.: Yeah. Dad, can we have a family meeting? Can you get Scott and Colby together for me?
Adam: Consider it done.
J.R.: Dad, wait. I'm sorry I didn't tell you about the cancer earlier. I told you about the remission, because I was hoping that you'd get rid of Annie.
Adam: Oh --
J.R.: I just should have been more honest -- treated you like a dad instead of like an enemy. Can you forgive me?
Adam: If you can forgive me. I love you, J.R. Don't ever forget that.
J.R.: I love you, too, Dad. Can you stay? I'd like to tell Little Adam about this.
Adam: Of course.
J.R.: Ok. Little Adam!
Little Adam: Grandpa!
Adam: Oh, there's my buddy! Oh! Ooh! Our very own bear wrestler. Ooh! Ha ha!
J.R.: Hey, come here. Oh. Hey, you're heavy. Remember I was telling you that I was sick? Well, we're gonna start a new treatment. Ok.
Adam: Now, this treatment is gonna make your dad all better. Ha ha.
Marissa: I'm so sorry that I couldn't tell you sooner.
Krystal: Ohh -- you know, I felt something was up with J.R. and his shaved head, but I -- and you weren't putting anything on the table, so I just didn't feel like it was my business to pry. Does Tad know?
Marissa: Yeah. He's been there for J.R. from the beginning.
Krystal: Well, I'm glad that J.R. has Tad and you to lean on. How are you holding up?
Marissa: I've -- been better. Yeah, you know, in the beginning, I thought I could take it on and just roll with whatever setbacks or side effects, but then the chemo treatments started. I went from denial to panic to just feeling completely overwhelmed by it all. And I couldn't talk to J.R. about it because he was sick. I -- I couldn't share it with anyone. Sometimes I just felt so alone.
Krystal: Oh, Marissa. You are not alone now, ok? If you need to talk, I want you to pick up that phone and call me. I don't care if it's 3 p.m. or 3 a.m.
Marissa: I'm sorry that I've been such a lousy daughter.
Krystal: What? No, you stop that nonsense right now, ok? Honey -- we are just learning how to be a family. Yes, I gave birth to you, but that does not automatically make me your mama. I have to earn that privilege, and I will. Starting right now.
Annie: Maybe if you had a life, you wouldn't be so focused on mine.
Colby: We have a mansion full of rooms. Why sleep on the couch? That -- that's all I meant. You're the one whose mind went all hot and steamy.
Scott: Uncle Adam has been at the hospital all night, all right? I was waiting for him.
Colby: Oh, my God, what happened? Is he all right? Is it his heart?
Scott: No, he's fine. It was a hospital board crisis.
Colby: You know, he -- he shouldn't be pulling all-nighters under his condition.
Scott: Yeah, exactly.
Annie: Well, at least we can all agree on that.
Colby: You don't give a damn about my father.
Annie: I need coffee.
Colby: She needs to take her bags and haul on out of here.
Scott: Hey, um, did you call Dr. Burke? Hmm? Annie's doctor at Oak Haven?
Colby: No, I didn't.
Scott: Because he showed up here last night saying Annie called him.
Colby: I knew this was gonna happen. Greenlee drove Annie bonkers last time. It would make sense why she would call for help.
Scott: Oh, she doesn't remember making the call.
Colby: This really, really isn't good, Scott.
Scott: No, no.
Colby: I didn't do it. I didn't call Dr. Burke. Ok, the last thing we need is for Annie to go off the rails.
Scott: Well, that's not what you said before.
Colby: You're right, Scott. Crazy Annie would put anyone in danger. I wouldn't do that, not to Dad, not to Emma, not to you. Yes, yes, yes, I want Annie gone, but the last time Annie took a nosedive from reality, she killed her brother, put on a wedding dress, and stabbed Erica Kane. Who'd want that Annie back?
Annie: Scott, would you like some coffee?
Scott: Uh, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna go home to the gatehouse, grab a quick shower. Thanks.
Annie: Why can't she stay dead?
Ryan: You need something to eat. I think I've got a little bit of cereal here, some juice, a little bit of tea. Just something for you. Here you go. Here. Where do you want it, right there?
[Greenlee overthrows the breakfast tray than dashes to the door and begins pounding on it]
Greenlee: Help! Help! Anybody, somebody, I'm trapped!
Greenlee: I'm being held prisoner by a madman!
Ryan: Just take it easy. Just try and take it easy, ok? Just-just --
Greenlee: [Grunting] Why won't this thing open?
Ryan: Look around. Do you remember it? You do, don't you? This is it, Greenlee. This is where we came a couple of years ago to get married. Do you remember? You do. Of course, it was just a partnership between friends then. But it turned into so much more. And personally, I will never -- I will never forget you walking across the lawn to me. You were wearing your jeans and your white ruffled shirt, and you looked so beautiful, so simple, so beautiful, so carefree. Sporting so much attitude all at the same time. Do you remember what we promised each other? A surprise a day every day. A lot to live up to. The best surprise for me was when I realized that you are the love of my life.
Greenlee: You want to know what I remember? Kendall locking me in a room like this, putting on her own wedding dress and trying to drown me just so she could have you.
Ryan: And she didn't succeed.
Greenlee: No. She waited until I was dead. Help!
Erica: Tell me what you remember about last night, David?
David: Martin. Jake called to tell me Marissa was in the hospital. But she wasn't.
Erica: Anything else?
David: Tad was in the parking lot. We struggled. Jake showed up. And then Jake injected me with some knockout drug. Ha ha. Boy, those Martin clowns aren't gonna be laughing once I press charges.
Erica: Oh, you won't be pressing charges. If you go to the police, I'll tell them that you're lying, and they'll believe me when I come forward with my story, and I'm quite sure that Jake and Tad both have very strong alibis.
David: All right, what is this, Erica? What, are you joining forces with those bozos to teach me a lesson?
Erica: Well, it's not nice to blackmail anyone, especially Angie Hubbard. Mmm. So, do you like my new place? You're actually the first man to spend the night here. You should be honored.
David: And just how long are you planning to keep me here?
Erica: As long as it takes to seduce you back to your senses.
Angie's voice: It's been a privilege to serve Pine Valley Hospital as its chief of staff. However, I am no longer able to fulfill all the duties of this position without sacrificing my personal and family responsibilities. Therefore, I regretfully tender my resignation effective immediately. I hope the board will honor my recommendation that Dr. David Hayward return as chief of staff. Sincerely, Dr. Angela Hubbard. What are you doing here?
Jesse: Well, good morning to you, too, sunshine. You didn't come home last night, you didn't call. What's that?
Angie: I was busy.
Jesse: Busy? Angela, I miss you next to me. We got to work our way through this, stop freezing each other.
Angie: Listen, there is nothing to talk about. I'm resigning.
Jesse: We argue about your job, you want to up and quit?
Angie: This is not about you.
Jesse: Then what is it about? Hayward? I know you hated the way you got this job, so what, you want to quit now because of Hayward?
Angie: You think this is about me blackmailing David?
Jesse: Well, I know you had a really, really hard time dealing with it in the beginning.
Angie: Ahh. Jesse, you know what? I really don't want to talk about it anymore. It is what it is. So if you'll excuse me, I have to messenger this to the board.
David: I've always liked the way you seduced. Go ahead, give me your best shot.
Erica: I'll let you know when I'm ready.
David: You don't give a damn about who runs PVH.
Erica: Well, you know me so well, David, why don't you tell me what I want?
David: This is all about Fusion. You're trying to get me to betray my fiancée. Well, I'm sorry, Erica, it's not gonna happen.
[Knock on door]
Erica: I'll get that.
David: Ha ha. Yeah. Ha ha! Why am I not surprised? So what happened to Tweedle Dumber?
Tad: Where is it?
David: Oh, I'm sorry, Taddy, I'm not a mind reader. You're gonna have to give me something more to go on.
Tad: You're gonna tell me where you hid that tape.
David: Really? That's the best you got? Go ahead, rough me up. You're not gonna get anything. You know, but maybe you should give a talking-to to your good friend Angie. I mean, after all, she is the one that blackmailed that union chief, right?
Erica: In the fireplace at Wildwind, there's a loose brick. Hugo Marick built a hiding place behind it. I bet the tape is there.
Tad: Erica, you're a gem. Keep him tied up, would you?
Erica: Oh, David, don't be such a bad sport. I lived at Wildwind, remember?
David: Ha ha. I'm gonna make sure you regret that some day, Erica.
Erica: Well, now, David, you need to play nice 'cause I hold the key to your freedom.
Greenlee: Please help me, someone! I'm trapped! I can't get out of my room!
Ryan: Save your strength, ok, because I rented the entire castle, and I sent the whole staff home, so --
Greenlee: There's no one here?
Ryan: No, no one. We're completely and totally alone.
Greenlee: You're wasting your money and my time. When I get out, I'm marrying David. Accept it.
Ryan: You missed something, Greenlee. You missed something pretty incredible.
Annie: I won't let that little witch hurt me again!
Scott: Ok, Annie, Annie, you need to relax. Greenlee is not out to get you.
Annie: Sorry. I -- I didn't mean to freak you guys out. I just -- I'm just tired. I've been up all night and worried about Adam, and the shock of Greenlee being alive, that's all.
Scott: I know. We get it. Right, Colby?
Colby: Yeah, yeah. Don't worry about it.
Annie: This is -- it's all Greenlee's fault.
Scott: Are you ok?
Annie: Last time she came back to town, she stole everything from me. She stole my husband. She stole Emma. She stole my sanity. Why does she call Dr. Burke pretending to be me?
Scott: I think Greenlee is a little worried about getting her own life back to worry about you right now.
Annie: I didn't call him, Scott. Somebody did.
Scott: Ok, well, maybe it was a simple mistake. I don't know. Maybe somebody else named Annie called the doctor, and his secretary wrote down the wrong name. It happens.
Annie: Things happen? Is that how you just explain life away, Scott? What about us? Do we just happen?
Scott: You went upstairs, and I slept down here. End of story.
Annie: I couldn't have gotten through the night without you.
[Adam appears in the doorway]
Annie: I was so worried about you. What was the big emergency?
Adam: Uh, we need to talk. Now. Where's Colby?
Scott: Upstairs, I think.
Annie: He heard us.
Scott: No, no. We don't know that for sure.
Annie: He thinks we slept together last night!
Scott: But we didn't. And nothing happened. Colby saw me asleep down here, so whatever he throws at us, we'll deal.
Scott: All right.
Annie: [Sighs] Uh, you must be so tired from your night. Why don't you get some rest before this little pow-wow?
Adam: No, I'm fine.
Colby: No matter what it is, Dad, I am here for you no matter what.
Adam: Ok. It's J.R.
Colby: Is he ok?
Adam: He'll be here shortly. Yeah.
Annie: Whoa, hey, isn't it a little early for that? I'll make you some coffee, mister.
J.R.: Hey, why don't you go brighten up Lucretia's day and get yourself a cookie.
Colby: What's, uh, going on, J.R.?
J.R.: The chemo's not working.
Colby: Wh -- what does that mean?
J.R.: It means that I need a bone marrow transplant.
Adam: We all need to be tested. Um, we need to pull together as a family. J.R. can beat this, but he needs our help.
Jake: Now you don't have to resign.
Tad: Well, come on, give us a hug. We won't tell Jesse.
Jake: Would you knock it off? What's the matter?
Angie: I already sent my resignation letter.
Tad: Well, unsend it. Look, all you got to do is get on the phone and call the messenger. That's it.
Angie: It's too late. I'm out as chief of staff. Accept it.
Jake: Great. So David gets to just add victim after victim on top of his pile of pain?
Angie: You know what? David may have given me that folder of dirty little secrets, but I'm the one who used it. I have sacrificed my integrity, my principles, and I need to own it.
Tad: Anything you want, Angela.
Angie: Thank you.
Tad: Come on.
[Door opens as Angie drops her nameplate into the trash can]
Jesse: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Put that back, young lady, right on your desk where it belongs.
Angie: Jesse, where did you get that letter?
Jesse: I stole it.
David: How long are you gonna hold me hostage here? Jake and Tad must have found that tape by now.
Erica: Let's talk about Fusion.
David: Ha ha. Erica, let it go. If you want Fusion, you're gonna have to go after it yourself.
Erica: David, I'm trying to help you.
David: Really? Because this doesn't feel like you helping me.
Erica: You have to talk to Greenlee. You have to get her to walk away from Fusion, because if I go after her full force, your fiancée is gonna end up -- well, it's not gonna be pretty.
Greenlee: Ok, spit it out. What did I miss?
Ryan: You missed our -- our first year of marriage, Greenlee, that's what you missed.
Greenlee: That's it?
Ryan: I'm gonna start with the honeymoon. No, I'll start with the wedding night, which -- which was gonna be here. We were gonna come here and have a late-night romantic dinner in the moonlight. And then we were going to make love all night long.
Greenlee: I don't need to hear this.
Ryan: I haven't even started. I haven't even got to the honeymoon part yet. Do you remember what we planned? That European tour, a month-long European tour which started at that Tuscan villa. Do you remember the villa that we saw the photos of with the cypress trees and the olive groves? It was so beautiful, perfect for long walks. Do you remember what we talked about? And then from there we were gonna go a little bit north to Lake Como, hang out there by the lake, and then take a tour through the Alps, maybe even ski a little bit. And then head up to Paris and take that private cruise along the Seine, stop at the Eiffel Tower, and I was gonna kiss you right there, right in front of the tower.
Greenlee: What, no French poodle?
Ryan: Well, I was gonna save the dog for when we got back to Pine Valley as a -- as an old married couple.
Greenlee: Hmm. Domestic bliss.
Ryan: You stealing the covers -- us taking long hot showers together -- waking up the kids in the morning -- Emma picking out your outfit for the day.
Greenlee: She is quite the fashionista.
Ryan: And then Corrina would take Spike and Emma to school, and we would be alone for that half an hour -- that precious half an hour in the morning -- every day where I would show you how much I love you.
Greenlee: We can never get that year back.
Ryan: We lost time together, Greenlee, but we didn't lose love. It's still there.
Greenlee: No, it died in Connecticut.
Ryan: No, I refuse to believe that. You're angry now, Greenlee, you're so angry, and I get that, but it's not gone. The love is there. If it was gone, then you would have just walked away, and you didn't. You still love me, Greenlee, you do, and I'm gonna keep you in this room, I'm not gonna let you leave until you say it.
Greenlee: I do not love you, Ryan. How can I be any more clearer?
Ryan: You're lying -- to me and to yourself.
Greenlee: You arrogant jerk. Just because Kendall and Erica and God knows what other females fell for you doesn't mean your Lavery magic still works on me. [Gasps]
Greenlee: Ah! Oh!
Ryan: Greenlee, you ok?
Greenlee: Oh, my God, Ryan, it hurts.
Greenlee: I'm scared.
Ryan: Let me call Jake.
Greenlee: No, no, no. This can't wait. I have to go to the hospital now.
Ryan: Ok. All right. No, no. Let me carry you to the car.
Greenlee: No, no. It's better if I walk. It's better if I walk.
Ryan: All right. Uh! Oh!
[As soon as he opens the door, Greenlee hits Ryan in the face with the it, then runs out]
Ryan: Are you kidding me?
Erica: David, it's time. It's time for you to step in and save Greenlee one more time.
[Cell phone rings]
David: That's my phone. That could be Greenlee. I told her to call me if there was an emergency.
Erica: No emergency here.
David: She was in a coma for almost a year, Erica.
Erica: Greenlee is actually embracing her emotional distress, David. Greenlee is nurturing her anger. Greenlee wants to go out and seek and destroy anyone she thinks hurt her.
David: She's trying to protect herself from the people who hurt her.
Erica: Well, in the meantime, I will not allow Greenlee to do any more damage to Fusion.
David: It's her company, Erica!
Erica: No, it is also Kendall's company, and Greenlee did her very best to destroy it, and if you don't get your vindictive bride to walk away from Fusion, I am going to have to do everything I can to safeguard it.
David: Oh, please. This is you trying to get back at Greenlee for stealing Ryan's attention.
Erica: Actually, not at all. Ryan and I ended things before either one of us had any idea that Greenlee had come back from the dead.
David: Ryan was never your type of man.
Erica: And you know what my type of man is?
David: Well, there was a time when I was an Erica Kane expert.
Jesse: I slipped right up to that unsuspecting messenger and in stealth mode, slipped the letter right out of said messenger's bag. Like the wind.
Angie: Did you read it?
Jesse: No. I was hoping you would tell me about it.
Angie: Well, actually, I just want to forget that the whole thing happened. Can you understand that?
Jesse: Can you understand why I need to know why you wanted to resign?
Angie: Jesse, I can't.
Jesse: What you mean is you won't, because you can do anything you want to.
[Cell phone beeps]
Angie: It's the E.R. I have to go.
[Door opens and closes]
Frankie: First off, it's great to see so many potential donors. Now, as you all know, Dr. Khan feels that a bone marrow transplant is J.R.'s best option for remission. Now, the initial testing is easy. We'll take swab samplings from inside the cheek and pass them along to the American bone marrow registry.
Marissa: Then what happens?
Jake: Well, if it's a match, then we'll take blood and do a whole series of tests.
Frankie: If the blood work shows true compatibility, the donor will be given drugs to boost stem cell production, and that bone marrow will be harvested and given to J.R. via I.V., Ok? Are there any questions?
Adam: Uh, first, let's see if I'm a match.
Frankie: Yeah, well, I'm sorry, Adam, but due to your age and medical history, you can't donate.
Adam: This is an emergency. I'm his father. Half his genes are mine.
Jake: Adam, it's ok. Actually, the rules were put in place to protect you and to protect J.R.
Adam: Oh, I was hoping I would be the one to save your life.
J.R.: Well, don't worry, Dad. We'll find a match.
Erica: Ok, since we're sharing. Let me ask you something. Why is a driven, incredibly talented doctor such as you wasting all of your effort on a spoiled, self-serving little brat like Greenlee Smythe? Have you hit rock bottom? Have you thought about Internet dating?
David: Ryan Lavery? Sam Woods? Jackson Montgomery? Even a short dance with Adam Chandler. Ha. Surely you could find a more suitable mate.
Erica: Sounds like you're jealous.
David: All right, fine. I hate your men, you disapprove of my women. You ever wonder why that is, Erica?
Ryan: Hey, hey, hey --
Greenlee: That vase is going against your skull!
Ryan: No, it's not. No, it's not. Take it easy. I'm worried about you. Ok, stay. Stay. Stay right --
Ryan: Now -- take it easy. Ok? I know you were just faking last time, but I really, really don't want you to get hurt again.
Greenlee: But you don't mind holding me captive, trying to brainwash me just like you accuse David of doing.
Ryan: I'm not brainwashing you, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Then stop getting in my face about the past.
Ryan: [Sighs] Ok. I'm just gonna wait. I'm just gonna sit here and wait for you to get honest about how you really feel about me.
Greenlee: Ha! This is ridiculous. Going mute won't break me. I'll never admit I love you.
Jesse: Baby, you really need to update the magazines in this joint.
Angie: Go home, Jesse.
Jesse: No. You are keeping something from me, and I want to know what it is.
Angie: This from the man who's kept how many secrets from the day he "died"?
Jesse: If you're not gonna let me in on what's really bothering you -- what kind of marriage is this? Wh --
[Jesse storms out]
Jake: Scott, you're up.
Scott: Ok. Listen, um, if I'm a match, you have to handle the next five audits for Chandler.
J.R.: Ha. If you're a match, you're off audit duty forever. Hell, I'll throw in a two-month ski trip to Aspen.
Scott: Well, I'm gonna need a buddy on the trail, so you better be there.
Marissa: Oh, we'll all go. A family vacation.
J.R.: That sounds like a deal.
Annie: I -- I'm still in shock over Jake and Frankie refusing to test you. I mean, shouldn't they see if you're a match first and then worry about the details later?
Krystal: I think the point is they don't want Adam keeling over in the process. I mean, didn't you get that?
Adam: I would give my life to save J.R.
Annie: Listen, J.R. is not going anywhere. And neither are you. You have way too much to live for.
Adam: Yeah. Huh.
J.R.: I don't want to hear any I-told-you-so's.
Colby: Come on, just one for me? I'll even give you some bone marrow.
J.R.: Oh, so you want me to admit that I'm wrong, so I can get some cells?
Colby: No. I'd -- give it to you anyway.
J.R.: How's it going on the Annie front?
Colby: Uh, I would rather focus on helping you.
J.R.: You'll find a way to get rid of Annie. You will.
Tad: Well, kiddo, it's your turn in the batter's box.
Krystal: I tell you what, why don't I go with you. Maybe they'll do two swabs for the price of one, huh?
Adam: Tad, I need you to find a woman named Sonia Reyes. She lived in California years ago.
Tad: Who's Sonia Reyes?
Adam: No questions right now. I just want you to find her. As soon as you can.
David: If this place weren't empty, you'd be yammering about eye shadow instead of answering my question.
Erica: Your question?
Erica: And, David, what question was that?
David: We still care about each other, Erica. Admit it. I've regretted our breakup for some time now. We were good together.
Erica: Hardly. We're both, uh --
David: Too much alike?
Erica: Oh, no. I wouldn't say that.
David: Oh, come on, we're equals in every way -- ambitious, driven, attractive, very attractive. And you can't deny that we certainly knew how to spice things up.
Erica: Well, now, Doctor, what would Greenlee think if she heard you flirting with the enemy this way?
David: She would probably cancel the wedding.
Erica: Oh, well, we can't have that, now, can we?
David: Well, I thought you'd want Greenlee left at the altar.
Erica: No. I want your wedding to take place. I want you to marry Greenlee. I want you to take her away from Fusion -- and Pine Valley and Ryan. Forever.
Ryan: And after all those years, I found the perfect partner. I just realized that. I never thought that I would be back in this place. Love. Real love. I thought I was done with it. I've asked myself what makes sense, ok, I have. I've asked myself what do I want. I've asked myself who do I want. I've asked myself all of it. And it's you, Greenlee, it's always -- always been you. I walk into a room, and you're there, and I -- and I feel it's my home. You are the love of my life, Greenlee, and I don't want to live it without you. I love you.
Greenlee: Ok, I still love you. Are you happy now?
