Jesse: Good work.
Angie: What are you doing here?
Natalia: Police business. Just interviewed a crime victim.
Angie: Oh. That knife wound we admitted last night.
Natalia: And I ran into Dad. So I figured I might as well turn in my report.
Jesse: Yeah. Sharing information. A novel approach.
Natalia: Ok, then. Well, um, I just remembered. There are some more questions I got to ask that guy, so I got to go.
Jesse: I guess I better go, too, since -- I can see this is not going well. I'll get out.
Angie: Hey. Look, I don't like the way we left things between us either.
Jesse: So what are you saying, you're ready to explain the real reason you wanted to resign?
Angie: Baby, I was -- I was just having a bad moment on one of those days. I mean, what else is there to explain?
Jesse: Judging from the look on your face, a lot.
Liza: As long as we get a table that's big enough so I can spread out all my paperwork.
Tad: Fine. What is it, a road map?
Liza: No. It's the official documents allowing Marissa to adopt Little A.
Tad: Oh. As long as you leave me enough space for a cheeseburger and a cell phone, I'll be ok.
Liza: You got it. You got it.
Tad: Hopefully, somebody's gonna call in with something about this Sonia Reyes.
Liza: Really? Still no luck?
Tad: No. I got a call out to Adam. I want him to come back to me with something a little more solid, a better lead, you know. Until that time, I'm stuck making cold calls.
Liza: So where the hell have you been?
Liza: Oh? Really? Well, you know, if you want me to represent you in these possible burglary charges, you might want to tell me when you're going gallivanting off somewhere.
Damon: I have some bad news about Stuart.
Liza: What is it? What is he, hurt?
Damon: No. No. Nothing like that. It's Bailey. She told me to take a hike, like, for good. She's just gonna stay home with her parents. She and Stuart aren't coming back.
[Liza chuckles nervously]
Adam: Annie? Annie, what is it?
Greenlee: He'll fight me every step of the way, and I'll fight back. But what if I can't do it? What if I'm not strong enough? If Ryan doesn't back off, it might just kill me.
Jake: Why do you have to be so melodramatic?
Greenlee: I'm serious, Jake. You don't know what it feels like.
Jake: So let me get this straight. You actually think that by Ryan telling you that he loves you, it might kill you. Is that right?
Greenlee: No. Not just saying that he loves me.
Jake: You know, I've been a doctor a pretty long time, and I think this is a first for me. I mean, I'm actually thinking about stepping back and watching this whole medical thing unfold. This way, I can name a syndrome after it, you know?
Greenlee: Yeah, you know what? You're just so funny. If I had the strength, I'd smack you right now.
Jake: Honey, you're stressed out. I honestly think he was just trying to get you something to eat so you can get your strength back. And this stress, by the way, is self-induced. You do this to yourself.
Greenlee: I'm not the one who's making everything more difficult.
Jake: No? Really? Then what was with the big entrance back into town, telling everybody in town that you're gonna marry David? What was that? I don't know what that is, but I will tell you this. If you do it, you have no idea what you're getting yourself into.
Greenlee: Trust me. I know exactly what I'm doing.
Jake: Really? Did you know that David pretended to be my son's father, so he could essentially steal him from us and have sex with my wife and blackmail her into that? Did you know that?
Greenlee: I know all of it, and most of it, I heard from David himself.
Jake: Sure, with his inimitable spin on it, of course.
Greenlee: You know what's so insulting, is that no one gives me the credit for being able to handle him.
Jake: No, because you're strong and you're capable and you're independent.
Jake: Then why are you so helpless when it comes to Ryan?
Scott: Annie? An -- Annie? Annie, what's going on, huh? What -- Annie, what are you doing with a tire iron?
Annie: [Drops the tire iron] I don't know. I was -- I was upset, so I just came out for some fresh air. And it was just sitting there on the table.
Adam: Who would leave a tire iron out here on the table?
Annie: I know who would. Greenlee. She's messing with my head. A tire iron? To provoke me about how I killed my brother?
Adam: Honey, I don't think Greenlee could have done this. How could she get on the property without setting off the alarms or alerting the guards?
Annie: The guards? The guards are useless. It didn't get here by itself, Adam. [Breathing heavily]
Adam: Now, listen, come on. We're going to go inside. We're gonna figure this out and get warmed up, ok?
Scott: What the hell were you thinking?
Angie: This job, it's so hard, especially to do it properly and especially when you know how the position has been abused. I mean, you just want to be able to let everyone know that it can still be done the right way.
Angie: And so when you slip up, it's like you hear this little voice in your head, saying, "You just don't have what it takes."
Jesse: Are you kidding me? You have more of what it takes than anybody I know.
Angie: Yeah. But you know where I'm coming from. I mean, when they made you police chief, you struggled. You made mistakes. I mean, how did you feel?
Jesse: Like crap. But I kept at it. Really, what's the alternative? Quit, walk off the job?
Angie: Well, that might be better than being forced to have it taken from you.
Jesse: Hey, what are you -- Hayward?
Angie: Look, it's no secret that he would love to have his job back. And ever since I maneuvered him out of office, he's just been biding his time. I mean, you know the man.
Jesse: I wish you'd have told me this before. If he looks at you crooked, I will --
Angie: No. This is my fight.
Jesse: This is a fight you wanted to walk away from two seconds ago. You are not afraid of this man. What's going on?
Angie: This isn't about fear! This is about wanting to do this job at a higher level than him ethically, humanely. There are politics involved that I just didn't see coming and compromises that I -- I just worry I can't --
Jesse: What? Hold on to your values? Angela, I know you. We all know you. You are one of Pine Valley's daughters. You do what is right. So what if you slip up one day? The next day, you bounce back and you show idiots like Hayward how it's really done. That's why Doc Martin believes in you. That's why I believe in you. That's why I love you. Please, tell me you know that. Even in your worst moments, you have got to know that in here.
Angie: I love you.
Liza: They'll be back. You know, Bailey and Stuart, they will eventually -- they're gonna come back.
Damon: Not according to her. She decided I was not worth the grief anymore. And after being accused of all those robberies, I couldn't get her to understand why I had to spend the night in Colby's room.
Liza: Yeah, I didn't get that one either.
Damon: Colby and I are friends, ok?
Damon: End of story. The thing is, I thought I had a shot to talk Bailey down. But with her parents right there, I just -- and they never liked me anyway, so game over.
Liza: What is she gonna do there? I mean, what's her plan?
Damon: She's already got a job. Her parents are gonna baby-sit Stuart when she's not there.
Liza: Good, good. It's just funny that she didn't call me, you know, after everything that we've been through. And -- [Clears throat] I really love that little guy. Ohh!
Greenlee: That's not a fair comparison. It's different with Ryan.
Jake: And that's why you're marrying David. What, is it anybody but Ryan day? Is that --
Greenlee: And that's why you're here, to be Ryan's wing man?
Jake: No, no, no. I'm not here to tell you that he's the one. That's for you to decide. That's for you to figure out.
Greenlee: Thank you.
Jake: Honey, I love you. I consider you one of my best friends, and I hate to see you hurting. Maybe you feel passed over, left out, kicked aside. That's understandable. But I don't think you should make this all about that. And if you're doing that to make it easier than taking the honest path forward, then I think you're doing yourself a great disservice. But you're known for that. I mean, it wouldn't be the first time. Look at you. You're dehydrated. I'm gonna get a drink for you, get something in your system, ok? [Exhales] How long have you been standing there? You've been listening to everything we're saying.
Ryan: I heard. Jake, I was walking in. I was coming in, but I heard her, Greenlee, say that I had pushed her to the edge with me trying to get her back. What was I thinking, bringing her here?
Jake: I don't know. Maybe trying to get her to see the light.
Ryan: I haven't done that. Only thing I may have accomplished is losing her for good. I thought I was doing the right thing here -- I thought I was -- by bringing her away from Hayward, right, so she could just relax a little bit, just relax and think about what she's doing. But look at her in there. And that's because of me. I'm only making things worse here. Honestly, I have been screwing up since the day that I thought she died -- I have -- since the day that I went to view her body, and I couldn't bring myself just to pull back the sheet and look. If I had have just looked, you know, none of this would have been happening. None of it. I should have questioned, I should have investigated, I should have double-checked the DNA to make sure that it was hers.
Jake: Hold on a second. You can't be blaming yourself for -- we all believed that, ok? And, plus, you were more shocked than anybody.
Ryan: Ok, then what am I doing now? What about here? What is this? Me getting in her face, what's this, insisting that we just pick up where we left off, like nothing happened. What am I doing?
Jake: Listen, she is fatigued. She is stressed out. She's dehydrated, ok? And by the way, she did all of this to herself. You didn't do it. And she's not going to die from it. So just take it easy, ok? Look, the way I see it, Ryan, I've always been a firm believer that you have to fight for something. If you love somebody, you have to fight for it, ok? That's what you do. And there's no user's manual when you find out that your fiancée is back from the dead. You're doing the best you can, and not for nothing. So is she.
Ryan: Well, I just don't know what to do. I mean, I don't. I want to do something right. And I don't know what it is. I don't know how to help. What are you doing out here --
Jake: I asked you to go get something to, you know, drink and eat for her. And you went AWOL, so I was just -- it's fine. Just go. I'll give you a minute.
Ryan: Hold on. Hold on. Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Frankie: Ok. The clinic's out of flu -- oh. [Chuckles] Excuse me. Am I interrupting something?
Jesse: Yes --
Jesse: You are. Your mother and I were leaving. Just leaving.
Angie: Leaving to go where?
Jesse: I'm sure we can find a less-trafficked place, one where young brilliant upstart doctors don't come barging in every two seconds for brilliant advice. So we are leaving. Any objections?
Frankie: No. None whatsoever.
Angie: Oh, boy.
Jesse: Then as you were, soldier, doctor, son.
Frankie: All right.
Angie: Just, um, make sure to let the on-call administrator know that I'm signing out!
Adam: I have a confession to make.
Annie: What is it?
Adam: When I walked out on that terrace, and I saw you with that tire iron in your hand, I was in no way sure what you were going to do next.
Annie: I used to dream about it, what I did to Richie.
Annie: The images were so stark, so terrifying, but eventually the nightmares went away, and I could go to bed without dreading them.
Adam: I still have dreams about Stuart's death. Sleep is no rest to me anymore anyway.
Annie: I know. I knew it then. You used to jar awake at night. Similar things happened to me, but now I feel like I have a normal stable life again. And now this? Somebody is that cruel to try to make me relive the horror of it?
Adam: I'm calling the police. If Greenlee did this, there will be evidence. And we can call your doctor at Oak Haven.
Annie: No, no, no, no, no. No, I'm fine. You don't have to call anybody. I'm fine. As long as I have you protecting me, then that's all I need.
Scott: You planted this. You wanted Annie to find it and flip out.
Colby: So what?
Scott: So what if your little plan had backfired, huh?!
Colby: Shh! All right! Not so loud, all right? Shh!
Scott: What if she'd have hit him with that thing?
Colby: Shh! I was just trying to make it clear how crazy Annie still is. And my father, my father needs to see that.
Scott: Oh, he nearly saw it in a big way.
Colby: Ok. So maybe it didn't go the way I planned. But you saw her. She was just this close to going over the edge. And when she does, she will be out of this house and out of my father's life forever. That makes it pretty fair game as far as I'm concerned.
Scott: Turn around and tell me this got you any closer to your goal.
Liza: You know the last time that I actually held him?
Liza: Oh, Tad --
Tad: What? Listen, I disagree with you. You know what I mean? Bailey loved you. She worshipped you. She could still come back.
Liza: No. I had to hear about her decision through Damon, not her. You know, that speaks volumes about her intentions.
Tad: It speaks volumes about his, too. It was pretty cool that he came all the way back here to tell you.
Liza: It's so funny 'cause back when we met, we were enemies at first sight. And now he's the one who's trying to do good by me? Colby. What am I gonna tell Colby? I think she loved him as much as I did.
Colby: So maybe it didn't go exactly the way I planned. I -- I'll be smarter next time.
Scott: Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Scott: Sure. That's a great idea. Why not? Hey, hey! Why not leave a loaded gun lying around, huh? One in every room. Two in the bedroom.
Colby: You're making my point for me, Scott. If that woman's unstable enough to be dangerous around guns, she doesn't belong in this house.
Scott: She's unstable because you keep twisting her mind around.
Colby: It wouldn't be so easy to twist if she wasn't already insane.
Scott: How can you be playing games like this when your brother is so sick?
Colby: J.R. is behind me 100%.
Scott: Ok, ok. That's it. This has gotten completely out of control. Either you tell Adam you did it or I will.
Colby: What are you so angry about, Scott? That I am the only person trying to defend this family or that I am going after the wild woman you still have the hots for?
[Adam walks in]
Greenlee: [Sighs] Where's Jake?
Ryan: He had to go. But we talked about how you were feeling exhausted.
Greenlee: I'll be ok.
Ryan: I know you will. Hopefully, some of this will help, too. I got your favorite yogurt right there, French toast and some maple syrup. But, of course, if your tastes have changed, you know, just tell me what it is that you want, and I'll just -- [Clears throat] I'll go get it.
Greenlee: And then when I have my strength back, we get to go through this all over again.
Ryan: No. I get it. I finally get it, that the Greenlee that I love will not be told how to feel or what to do. She'll make up her mind. And when she goes after it, the rest of the world better get the hell out of the way.
Greenlee: So you're getting out of the way?
Ryan: Yes. Because the most important thing right now is for you to get better. And I'm gonna help you to do that. I owe you at least that much. So other than that, no more talk about the future, about negotiations, nothing. I promise.
Adam: So this is what's going on, hmm? Our family is in the worst crisis of its life, my son is fighting cancer? And I get plots and malicious little mind games.
Annie: It was Colby who planted the tire iron?
Colby: It -- it was a joke.
Adam: Enough! Are you ever gonna stop lusting after my wife?
Annie: Adam, I can't believe you would even say something like that.
Adam: Oh, really? You're hardly blameless in all of this. Things don't happen in a vacuum -- your war with Colby or your ongoing flirtations with my nephew.
Annie: But, Adam, there is nothing going on.
Adam: I don't want to hear it! J.R. needs all the help we can give him. And I'm out there skirting the edges, trying to find a donor for him. And this is what I have to deal with? No! No! It's over right this minute. And if you people don't shape up, I swear to God, I'll write you all out of my will, merit trust or not!
[Knock on door]
Dr. Simon: Hi. Is Dr. Hubbard around?
Frankie: Not right now. What do you need with her?
Dr. Simon: Approval on an uninsured patient who has to have surgery.
Frankie: Is it an emergency?
Dr. Simon: No. But the guy's in the E.R. with an aortic aneurysm. He needs surgery tonight, so the chief of staff has to approve it. If not, he's got to be transferred to County ASAP.
Frankie: Well, she's tied up at the moment, but I can relay the message to her.
Dr. Simon: Here's my beeper number.
Frankie: All right.
Dr. Simon: I'll wait to hear from her.
Frankie: All right.
Frankie: Dr. Hubbard's office. No. She's not available right now, but I have it right here. Oh. Perfect. Ok. I'll tell her. Thanks.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Angie: So, Mr. Secretive, what are we doing here? I mean, if all you wanted was a place to talk, we've got home for that.
Jesse: I wanted to do something special just to punctuate how important we are to each other. I mean, we may have our fights, we may have our disagreements, but I think what we have more than all of that is love. And here lately, all we've been focused on is this argument, that fight. Baby, we have been tested before, we have been stretched mighty thin. But we still here, damn it. That means we never give up. So here I am not giving up.
Angie: And I came here thinking you were gonna buy me a T-bone steak.
Jesse: You know, you got some work to put in before I get you a T-bone steak.
Angie: [Laughs] This is gonna be a rough night, huh?
Natalia: What did you do with Angie? Stuff her in the closet so you could play chief of staff today?
Frankie: [Imitating Natalia] Not funny. Actually, Dad came by to whisk Mom away so I'm helping out. I'm just now fielding two phone calls.
Frankie: Oh! Dr. Hubbard's office. Yeah. I will tell her. All right. You know, this has made my evening a little hectic playing gate keeper, but you know what? It's worth it just to give them one good getaway together, you know? She needs it.
Natalia: Yeah. Well, bad news. I'm here to overwork you a little more. I just interviewed a patient, and I need someone in charge to initial this.
Frankie: All right. Well, I got to get the on-call administrator for that. In the meantime, you'll have to --
Frankie: Wait. Let's see. Dr. Hubbard's office. Oh. I have it right here. Just hold on a second. Ah, yes. Here it is --
Natalia: This is all a little too exciting for me. I'll pick that up later. Later. Later, Gator.
Frankie: Oh, sure. I got it.
Damon: So I'm thinking, you know, I'd really love to hang on to this job, you know, if you're down with that.
Manager: We'd have to have some pretty clear rules. Hang on. I got to deal with this.
[Dance music playing]
Tad: Hey, I would have thought you'd be halfway back to Ohio by now.
Damon: Yeah, well, you know, I'm not really supposed to leave Pine Valley. You know, I'm a suspect in all those robberies.
Tad: Well, you know what? You got a good lawyer. I'm sure she could work something out if you wanted to hang around your son a little bit --
Damon: Well, to tell you the truth, I'm kind of thinking of sticking it out around here. Bailey made it pretty clear she wants me out of the picture. And, I mean, this is a good job. You know, if I can keep it, I can send money back to Stuart and still keep my room at the Pine Cone.
Tad: Come on. A guy as smart as you could get a job way better than this in 15 minutes back in Ohio.
Damon: It's kind of hard being in the same town with your kid and not being able to see him.
Tad: You're that boy's father. You got a legal right to see him if you want to.
Damon: It's not about legal. I mean, things are tough enough on Bailey without me forcing myself on her. Besides, I know some people here now. It seems like a decent place to hang.
Tad: What about your family, your parents? Where are they?
Damon: What does that matter? Why are you -- why are we talking about this?
Jake: Who died?
Liza: Me. But just a little.
Ryan: [Chuckles softly] What?
Greenlee: French toast? You would bring me French toast.
Ryan: Yeah. I thought it would be a bit of an energy boost.
Greenlee: Right. Right. It has nothing to do with the fact that that's what we ate the night that you laid out your big surprise for me.
Ryan: The trapeze lessons! No, no, honestly, I was -- I did not think of that. I did not try to trade in on that memory. I really didn't.
Greenlee: Well, as memories go, it was a good one. That note you left.
Ryan: "Butterflies are free." And then all the clues. You remember the clues?
Greenlee: Yeah. The walking stick, the handkerchief, peanuts -- everything I would need to join the circus. Memories are great, but we can't do this, not until we figure everything else out.
Ryan: We're not doing this. But we are doing something.
Ryan: It's your birthday. Or did you think that I forgot? Are you gonna make a wish? What did you wish for?
Greenlee: You know me better than that. I'll eat this later.
Ryan: Yeah. You should get some rest.
Greenlee: I feel like I'm too awake to go to sleep.
Ryan: Really? You know what we need is we need that housekeeper that you grew up with. What was her name again?
Ryan: Camille. That's right. You said that your parents traveled all the time, right? So she was the one that read you your bedtime stories.
Greenlee: Yeah. I don't think she's still around.
Ryan: Oh. I'm sorry. I guess I'll just have to take over. So put your head back and feet over there, and scoot over a little bit. Come on, now. If I remember correctly, your favorite story was the tale of you becoming a famous trapeze artist, right? Yes. It was. "Young Greenlee runs off to join the circus" is how it begins. And she's not running away from anything. She's not. She's running to things. She's always running to things -- to the wonders of the world. She runs off, and she joins the circus to apprentice, to the Great Garibaldi. I can't believe I remember that name. And it's not long before she's sailing over the audiences like a radiant butterfly. And, of course, they fall in love with her, with her grace and her spirit, bestowing on one and all that magnificent smile.
Tad: You know, I've got to say I'm impressed by you, your willingness to work so hard and send money back to Stuart.
Damon: He's my kid, isn't he?
Tad: There are plenty of guys that could convince themselves that it's not their problem.
Damon: That's not me.
Tad: Ok, hotshot. I might be able to find some things for you to do, I mean, to offset your wonderful job here. I got a big house, I got two small kids. Things happen. If you're as good with a hammer and saw as you are with a paint brush, I think I can throw a little work your way.
Damon: I appreciate that.
Tad: See you later.
Jake: You know, you had some beautiful, beautiful moments with Stuart. And my strong suggestion is that you hold on to those tightly, all right? It might be painful at first, but don't let those slip away, because they're gonna come in very handy someday when you need them the most.
Tad: That's good advice, especially considering his usual random ideas.
[Cell phone rings]
Tad: Yeah? Ok. Fine. No. Uh, I'll be right there. That was Adam. He's got something for me at the hospital.
Tad: I'll check in.
Damon: I should probably go, too. But, uh, here. I almost forgot. Uh, I got some pictures of Stuart here. You can -- you can have them.
Liza: Hey, wait. Come on over here and look at these with me.
Liza: Those cheeks.
Damon: Ha ha ha ha.
Scott: Uncle Adam really let us have it this time, didn't he? J.R. has to be our only focus, Colby.
Colby: What have I been able to do for J.R.? Let a nurse swipe the side of my cheek with a cotton ball. [Choking up] He is so sick, and that is all I can do to help!
Scott: We're all doing what we can.
Colby: That's what made Annie so tempting. You know, she was a problem that I could attack.
Colby: I know just how you feel -- useless, frustrated.
Colby: I think I'm -- I think I'm gonna go get some air.
Annie: You thought I might do it there for a minute, didn't you? You just might have awakened something in me, Colby, something that's been dormant for a really, really long time. For your sake, I hope not, but who's to say?
Colby: You're not -- you're not gonna hit me with that thing, and we both know it.
Annie: Still, I bet you lock your bedroom door tonight. Sweet dreams.
Adam: Ah! I came here looking for J.R., but I missed him. He must have gone home with Marissa and Little Adam.
Tad: Yeah. Well, we didn't see the point of keeping him here just waiting on some test results. If any of us is a marrow match, we can get him back here. The doctor will give him a call, and he'll be back in 15 minutes.
Adam: Possibly it's occurred to you that the job I sent you on has the potential to bear fruit.
Tad: Unless you've got something else for me because what you gave me last time didn't amount to anything.
Adam: Perhaps this should help crumble the brick wall you hit.
Tad: Whew. That's a hell of a weekend in Vegas.
Adam: You may have to set aside a good chunk of it. It's her child I'm interested in. I want him tested to be a possible donor for J.R., and you may need some other cash to induce him to do it.
Tad: Adam, a child?
Adam: Find him before it's too late.
Tad: Yeah. I'll do that.
Liza: Especially there! Now, this is a picture! Ha ha!
Damon: That's after.
Liza: He is so big. Look how much he's grown.
Damon: I know. The little dude's a Titan.
Liza: What is it?
Natalia: I'm here for him.
Natalia: The DNA tests on the blood found at the burglaries, they've come back. Damon here is a perfect match.
Liza: Ok, there must be some mistake --
Natalia: Stand up, Damon. You're under arrest.
Damon: Hang on to those pictures for me, huh? I might need them to keep me sane on the inside.
Natalia: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Angie: This has been absolute heaven. But maybe, sweetheart, I need to --
Jesse: No, no, no, no. They will call you if it's an emergency. Trust that. All right? Just a little longer. It means so much to me being here with you like this. Just a little longer.
Frankie: Well, I will let her know. All right. Thank you. [Clears throat] Hi. This is Dr. Hubbard. You had a patient with an aortic aneurysm waiting for surgery or transfer? He can't be dead. He was just -- he ruptured before surgery could be scheduled. [Sighs] No. That's all I need to know.
