Ryan: This doesn't even compare to the cons I used to run.
Jake: It seems such a waste of talent.
Ryan: I got out of the game a long time ago.
Jake: Hmm. What if David was the mark? Would you reconsider getting back into the game?
Ryan: I'm past all that.
Jake: You know, David has completely devoured Greenlee, sucked her back into his life. I mean, if that's not motivation enough for you to work a little of your black magic, I don't know what is. Now, this is a chance for you to do something for her, the woman that you love. Is that really something you can say no to?
Erica: Gayle? Oh, damn it!
[Knock on door]
Erica: Oh, thank God! Thank God you came back!
Opal: Back? No, I've never been here before in my life, but whoo-hoo! I just brought you a little housewarming gift to kind of celebrate your new digs! Wow!
Erica: Thank you.
Opal: Well, is something wrong?
Opal: Gayle? Oh, that nurse? David's nurse?
Erica: She's gone.
Opal: Gone? She was here?
Erica: Well, she's not here anymore.
Opal: You know, I feel like I kind of stepped into the middle of a movie. Would you mind rewinding a bit?
Erica: If I can't find Gayle, Opal, the movie's over because Gayle is the only leverage I have against David and that blushing bride of his.
David: Why don't we go away somewhere? You know, find a nice private beach where all you have to worry about is what flavor daiquiri to order.
Greenlee: Hmm. You know what I really want?
Greenlee: For you to clue me in. What exactly was going on between you and Erica?
David: The only thing going on between us is we like to give each other hell.
Greenlee: No one loves giving Erica hell more than I do. So why stop anytime I get anywhere near you?
David: You know what this is? You hate the woman so much you're overly paranoid.
Greenlee: And you're busted. Something's up, and it's not just Erica making sure we get married so she can get her claws back into Ryan. You know I won't stop until you tell me.
David: You're right. Erica and I are working together -- to get you.
Adam: Where's Miguel?
Tad: He wasn't on the plane.
Adam: What do you mean, he wasn't on the plane? J.R. needs Miguel's bone marrow. He has to be here.
Tad: Don't you think I know that?
Adam: Was it a misconnection or what?
Tad: There was no connection. There couldn't be. It was a direct flight. I booked it myself. Adam, I don't know what to tell you. I'm trying to get in touch with my guys in California just to figure out what went wrong.
Adam: I paid them! We had a deal.
Tad: Well, the deal's gone south, ok? It looks like your long-lost son took your money and ran.
Adam: J.R.'s gonna die without that --
Tad: I know that!
Marissa: Hey. J.R. saw you come back from the airport. Is everything ok?
J.R.: So when do I get to meet my little brother?
Annie: It should be fun working together.
Brooke: Uh, well, the details haven't been ironed out yet for my taking over as editor again.
Annie: [Gasps] Light bulb! "Captain of industry tracks down the son he's never met to save the life of the son he loves." Yeah, it's got emotion, it's got drama -- "Tempo" readers love that stuff.
Brooke: It's Adam's story, and I'm not sure that he would want the details of his illegitimate son splashed all over the media.
Annie: It was just an idea.
Colby: Did Tad come back alone?
Liza: Honey, I'm sure everything is fine. Hey, how's your hand?
Colby: It's ok, I guess.
Scott: Yeah, I'm sure Damon's cheek got the worst of it.
Colby: What an ass, you know, to lie to me like that, convince me he's innocent when he's the one this whole time breaking into people's places. Such a loser.
J.R.: So where's this brother of mine? Picking up a get-well present in the gift shop?
Adam: It seems that Miguel -- we're not sure --
Tad: J.R., I'm sorry. The truth is I went to the plane --
Adam: It was diverted. Diverted, yes, and -- but it's all right, though. We still have time to take care of it. We just need to find Miguel -- I mean, get Miguel here. And, um --
J.R.: He's not coming?
Adam: No, J.R., he's not.
Ryan: What David is doing to Greenlee makes me crazy. It kills me, and there's nothing more I would like than to take it -- thank you -- than to take him down, ok? But I promised Greenlee that I wouldn't, that I would just wait for her to come to me. And if I do go after the one guy that she thinks is on her side, then it's just gonna push her further away.
Jake: Or she'll thank you. I'd thank you.
Ryan: Greenlee needs to trust me, Jake. That's what she needs.
Jake: Greenlee needs to be saved. David's dangerous. He hurts people. He blackmails people. He poisons people. Do you know that he blackmailed my father out of the job of chief of staff, and then he tried to blackmail Angie to get the job back? Do I have to tell you what he did to my wife?
Ryan: No, you don't. You don't have to tell me because I know. I know what he did to your life and I get it. I get that you want to ruin his, and that makes sense to me.
Jake: He planted Greenlee's DNA in a corpse. He kept your fiancée away from you for a year. Are you ok with that?
Ryan: No, I'm not. But I don't want to stoop to his level. But the more I think about it I realize that it's impossible not to. So let's bring the bastard down.
Jake: Hey, look who it is: The hottest cop in town. How are you?
Natalia: I'm good.
Jake: Nice bust. You know what I mean -- for the --
Natalia: Yeah. Right. I had a lot of help. Thanks again, Ryan.
Ryan: Yeah, I'm glad to be of service.
Jake: You know what's funny? Isn't it usually the criminal that returns to the scene of the crime?
Natalia: No, witness interviews. The guy's ratting out half the cons in the city if he could get a deal out of it. He was playing tough for, like, the first five minutes, then he started naming names so fast that we could hardly shut him up.
Ryan: That's how we do this. That's how we bring Hayward down. We don't need to run a con on him. We just find someone to turn on him, someone that knows everything, every dirty thing that this guy has done: Nurse Gayle.
Opal: So old Nursy-Nurse Gayle still has it bad for Dr. Evil, huh?
Erica: Yes, except now she knows he used her.
Opal: Hmm. She wants him to know that he can't kick her to the curb. She's not gonna be treated like yesterday's compost.
Erica: Exactly. And, believe me, I feel her pain, but Gayle is the only way I can control David. And if I can control David, I can get him to drag Greenlee out of town.
Opal: Oh, so this is about Fusion?
Erica: Oh, you better believe it's about Fusion. Greenlee thinks she can just push me out of the company that she tried to destroy.
Opal: Well, why don't you bring Kendall in on it?
Erica: No, no, no, no. Kendall's off with her family. She needs that time. I can squash Greenlee without her help.
Opal: Even if Nurse Gayle doesn't want to be found?
Erica: Oh, I will find her. Listen, will you stay here while I go look, ok, just in case she comes back?
Opal: Well, where are you gonna start looking?
Erica: Wildwind. Luckily, I had a copy of David's key made when he was over here for his sleepover.
Erica: I just hope that Gayle didn't get there first, you know, and confront him, because then everything is ruined.
Greenlee: You're the one person in my life I thought had my back.
David: It's not what you think.
Greenlee: What part of "Erica and I are working together to get you" didn't I understand?
David: Erica wants Fusion. She wants me to make that happen.
Greenlee: You agreed?
David: I told her I would do it. But, of course, I have no intention of doing that.
Greenlee: Really? What was your plan, then?
David: I only let her believe that I would do it.
Greenlee: Oh, great.
David: Yeah. No, it's perfect. Don't you get it? Now we could use this to your advantage.
Greenlee: How are we gonna do that, husband?
David: We let Erica believe that you've taken a step back --
Greenlee: No way.
David: It's a strategic move, ok? It's Temporary. If Erica thinks that she's in control, that she will have Fusion --
Greenlee: We can pounce and snap her neck?
David: Not exactly.
Greenlee: Then I hate it.
David: Greenlee, look, we move carefully, ok, patiently. Once we get Erica lulled into a false sense of security, then we oust her from Fusion for good. So what do you think?
Greenlee: When were you going to tell me this?
David: Maybe I wanted to enjoy our wedding night, or what's left of it.
Greenlee: We've only been married a couple of minutes, and you've already lied to me.
David: No, I haven't lied. I only wanted to wait for the right moment. Greenlee, after everything we've been through together, I would never hurt you.
[Car door closes]
David: I promise once Erica realizes that I've double-crossed her, it'll be too late. She'll be the one out of Fusion for good. - Don't forget Mrs. Collier. - I won't.
Greenlee: We're going to double-cross Erica?
David: That's right: To keep Fusion for you. What better gift to give my bride, huh? So what do you say we have another glass of champagne, now that we've cleared that up?
Greenlee: Look me in the eyes and tell me everything you've said is the truth.
David: It wouldn't do any good.
Greenlee: You're avoiding.
David: No, I'm not avoiding. Greenlee, it's not me you don't trust. You accused Erica of going after all your men. She got Ryan. Well, now you're afraid that she's gonna go after me and get me, too. You're still so hurt over losing Ryan you're not thinking straight.
Ryan: David is smart. I mean, we all know he's an idiot, but he is smart. We got to be smarter than him.
Jake: If we can get Gayle to turn him in for all the crap she has on him, we can string him up.
Natalia: Wait, wait. Did he really tamper with a corpse and DNA to hide Greenlee?
Jake: That's right. And your family's not immune either.
Natalia: What do you mean?
Jake: He tried to get Angie out of her job by blackmailing her.
Natalia: She didn't say anything to me, neither did my dad.
Jake: Because he doesn't know. She doesn't want him going over there and busting David's head open over this.
Jake: Yeah. He's also probably gonna still go after it. He's probably not finished with her.
Natalia: I want to help.
Ryan: Are you sure about that?
Natalia: Hayward has broken a million laws, and he always gets away with it. If I help bust him, this could be my ticket to detective. What do you need?
Jake: Gayle Walker's phone number. Last place she lived was Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Natalia: Got it. All right, boys, nice working with you.
Jake: She's my kind of people.
Ryan: Anybody that wants to bring Hayward down is your kind of people.
Jake: So what now? What do we do now?
Ryan: We wait.
J.R.: What happened?
Adam: Miguel never got on that plane -- maybe because he lost his nerve, maybe because he never intended to come in the first place.
Tad: But he was tested, ok? He was tested, and it was a match, I swear to you. So all we got to do is get in touch with this kid, figure out what happened so we can fix it.
Adam: If Miguel doesn't show up, we have other options.
J.R.: Dad, everyone was tested. No one's a match.
Adam: I was tested.
J.R.: What? Angie said that was too risky.
Adam: Well, the hell it was. I found one of those outside facilities. I'm still waiting for the results.
J.R.: I'm not gonna let you put your life on the line.
Adam: We need options.
Tad: He's right, J.R., you know?
J.R.: No, you know what? No. I just want to be alone. I want to be alone with Marissa right now.
J.R.: I want to see A.J.
Colby: What is going on? Where is Miguel?
Adam: Apparently, he never made it on the plane.
Tad: I'm looking into it!
Tad: I'll do what I can. As soon as I get in touch with the guys in California, I'll know what went wrong, and I'll know how to fix it.
Adam: Really? When you get together with your guys, why don't you ask them why they didn't help Miguel get on that damn plane? This is your fault, Tad.
Tad: I am just as upset about this as you are.
Adam: Oh, really? If you're so damn messed up about it, why didn't you go and take his hand and lead him onto the plane and not leave it to a bunch of baggage handlers? If my son dies because you screwed up --
Liza: Ok, you are the one that has ignored this other son of yours his entire life. You never contacted him, you never wanted to meet him until you needed something, right? That's probably why Miguel doesn't have a particular family loyalty here.
Adam: I paid him. He took the money. You better hope for a damn miracle. Because if I lose J.R., I swear to God I'm not gonna --
Brooke: Adam, Adam, Adam! Listen, I know how hard this is, but blaming Tad is not gonna help anything. Come on, all right? Come on, let's sit. Let's talk, all right?
Adam: All right, all right.
Liza: This is not your fault.
Tad: If that's the case, then why do I feel like such a stupid son of a bitch?
Scott: Hey, no tears, ok? This isn't over. Come here.
Annie: Adam, do you want to come with me? Maybe we can go --
Adam: What do you have for us?
Dr. Kahn: I was hoping J.R.'s match might've arrived.
Adam: I'm afraid we can't depend on that donor anymore.
Dr. Kahn: I'm sorry to hear that.
Scott: Yeah, but there's still the national registry, right?
Dr. Kahn: There's been no movement there.
Brooke: Well, I was tested, but my results haven't come in yet.
Dr. Kahn: They did. I'm sorry. You're not a match, and neither was your son Jamie Martin.
Adam: I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you have tried to help us.
Colby: Isn't Brooke great?
Annie: She's very generous. We're very grateful, the two of us.
Tad: What's next?
Dr. Kahn: We wait. Keep J.R. strong.
Annie: Dr. Kahn? I want to be tested.
Dr. Kahn: I thought J.R. wouldn't accept a transplant from you.
Annie: J.R. may not like me, but if my marrow can save his life -- please, Doctor? They're desperate.
Dr. Kahn: Come with me.
Marissa: Krystal's gonna bring A.J. over.
J.R.: Good. I -- ahem -- I need to talk to you.
Marissa: No, you need to rest.
J.R.: Listen to me. These last few months with you have been amazing. I don't know what's ahead.
Marissa: No, don't --
J.R.: We just need to be prepared, that's all.
Marissa: You're gonna make it, J.R., ok? You're gonna be ok. And then you can tell me everything you want to then, when we're home.
J.R.: I've been a selfish bastard.
Marissa: How can you say that?
J.R.: Because if I had known when we got involved that I was gonna get this sick, I still would've done it. Just being with you, loving you, has been heaven on earth.
Marissa: Ohh --
Ryan: I tell you what. We take Hayward down, and you buy next round.
Jake: I'll throw a party.
[Cell phone rings]
Ryan: Wow, Natalia works fast. Hey. Any luck?
Natalia: It took some work, but I finally got the nurse's number.
Ryan: She's got it.
Erica: Excuse me.
Natalia: Oh, one minute. He'll help you.
Brot: Ms. Kane?
Erica: Hi. I'm gonna need your help again this evening. I know that this is a long shot, but have there been any reports of anything unusual happening tonight.
Brot: Hmm. More unusual than you asking me to break into your office with an ax? No, not that I know of, Ms. Kane.
Erica: Really? No domestic disturbances or prowlers or stalkers?
Brot: Is there something you want to share, Ms. Kane?
Erica: Just forget that I was even here.
David: If you don't believe me, maybe getting married wasn't such a good idea.
Greenlee: It was a great idea. But what you said about Ryan --
David: Greenlee, I understand, all right? I know it's gonna take time for you to get over him.
Greenlee: I am over him. You're the one who keeps bringing him up.
David: But you loved him so much.
Greenlee: Yes, loved: Past tense. Moved on, over and done with. Ryan is my past. My future is with you, us. However much I loved him, I don't trust it. I can't. But you I trust. This, us I trust.
David: Even though I told you Erica wants me to work against you?
Greenlee: Yes. You explained it to me. I believe you. What do I have to do to prove it to you?
David: You don't have to do anything.
Greenlee: You have to know I mean this. I want this. I trust you and only you.
Greenlee: It's our wedding night. Make love to me.
Greenlee: Not exactly the response I was expecting.
David: Greenlee, you don't have to prove anything to me.
Greenlee: I have to do something. Unless I convince you I'm 100% in this, you're gonna keep throwing Ryan in my face.
David: Won't happen again. I promise. And don't get the wrong idea. It's not like I wasn't extremely tempted.
Greenlee: Good to know.
David: But we're more than just legal husband and wife. We're partners. We're friends. There's no way in hell that I want to jeopardize that. I mean -- to have a friend that I can trust, that I can share anything with -- do you realize how amazing that is?
Greenlee: Yeah. Actually, I do.
David: So we're good?
Greenlee: Hmm. We're better than good. We're married.
David: Come on. To us.
Greenlee: Friends forever.
[Cell phone rings]
Jake: It's Amanda.
Ryan: Aren't you gonna take it?
Jake: Nope. I'll just call my little honeybee later. Hates it when I call her "honeybee."
Ryan: How are things going with you two?
Jake: They're going great, and I'd like to keep it that way. That's why I want David gone.
Ryan: I hear you.
Jake: Call the nurse already. Let's go.
Ryan: Better, I'm gonna text her. "We know what you and Hayward did. Meet us or go to prison."
Erica: Oh, was it good?
Opal: I left you the pears.
Erica: Thank you.
Opal: So did you find your gal Gayle?
Erica: It's as if she disappeared. And that's not the worst of it, Opal. I overheard David telling Greenlee that he plans to double-cross me, that he plans to push me out of Fusion. Can you imagine the nerve?
Opal: Well, honey, everybody knows that guy is nothing but nerve. What are you gonna do about it?
Erica: Well, obviously, I'm not gonna let him get away with it.
Opal: Even if you don't have Nurse Gayle?
Erica: There are other ways to handle David. I still have the handcuffs from the other night.
Erica: Don't ask.
Greenlee: It's getting late. I guess I'll go to bed.
David: Yeah, I'm gonna turn in myself just as soon as I put out the fire. We don't want the fire department here again.
Greenlee: Ha-ha. Very funny.
David: Sweet dreams.
Marissa: J.R. wants to see you.
J.R.: A.J. found this on the beach. He gave it to Babe. He thought it was magic.
Tad: Yeah, I remember. That's why she gave it right back to him. She said it would always protect him.
J.R.: Yeah. Maybe it's just a shell.
Tad: No. It's whatever you make it. Believe it. You have. Just hang on. I swear to you I'll find this kid if I have to turn the -- it's just a matter of time, ok? I'll fix it. I promise you of it.
J.R.: I heard Dad blaming you.
Tad: And he had every right. I screwed up, J.R. I should've gone out to California, gotten Miguel myself.
J.R.: It's not your fault. This shouldn't be a shock, right? This kid bailing on us? He might be related, but it's not like he's family. You know, not like we are.
Tad: Ahem. You know, sometimes I like to think that even if it wasn't for Dixie bringing the two of us together that some -- somehow we'd have found each other, been close.
J.R.: Would've been something if you and I were really related. But sometimes life just doesn't work out the way that you want.
Brot: Hey. I heard about your big bust, rock star.
Natalia: And you tried to talk me out of it. That dude was totally on his scam, and I busted his ass.
Brot: Well, I must say, impressive.
Natalia: Yeah. Looks like I'll be rocking a detective's badge before you're even out of the academy, cadet.
Brot: Well, I'm glad you can set me straight.
Natalia: Someone has to.
Brot: You know, because I heard that Ryan Lavery leveled the guy and all you had to do was cuff him.
Jake: There she is.
Gayle: That text was you? I should've known.
Jake: We need information on David.
Gayle: So you threaten me? I don't think so.
Ryan: I sent the text. I sent the text, ok? I'm Ryan Lavery.
Gayle: I know who you are.
Ryan: And I'm sorry that it was so harsh, but we really need your help.
Gayle: So you can throw me in jail, too? I didn't do anything. The only person who deserves to be in prison is David Hayward.
Ryan: We completely agree. That's why we need your help. It's obvious that he's used you, Gayle, all right, like he's used so many people. We want to stop him from hurting anybody else, and we want to help the people that he's already hurt.
Gayle: Why would you help me?
Jake: Well, you lost your job because of him, didn't you? Your nursing license? Convinced you to do things you shouldn't have done, illegal? You help us, we'll make sure he gets what he deserves.
Gayle: Erica Kane contacted me.
Ryan: She did?
Gayle: I'm such an idiot. I thought that if David saw me again, he might realize -- I just wanted us to be together. I should've known.
Jake: What should you have known?
Gayle: He married her. He married that bitch Greenlee.
Minister's voice: By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride. I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Lavery, husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.
Ryan's voice: Because I love you more than anything in the world, and you just admitted that you still love me. I mean, that's definitely a first step.
Greenlee: No, it's the last. We had a future, but it's in the past now.
Erica: David, I just assumed that you'd be enjoying your wedding night.
David: I just stopped by to assure you that I've taken the first steps to separate Greenlee from Fusion.
Erica: Good. Is there anything else?
David: Yes, as a matter of fact, there is. We need to be more careful, Erica. Greenlee's not an idiot. She already senses there's something else going on between us.
Erica: I'm sure you handled it perfectly.
David: I managed. But in the future, the less contact the better. It's not like we want to be so obvious, right?
Erica: Oh, no. Being obvious would be very bad.
J.R.: Uh -- ahem -- I didn't hear you.
Adam: I'm sorry about Miguel.
J.R.: It's all right.
Adam: I mean that I tried to keep you from knowing that he wasn't actually coming. But I wanted you to be positive. We have a lot to look forward to: A.J. growing up and Chandler Enterprises expanding. I'll tell you what. When you get out of here, I'm gonna throw the biggest birthday party in the history of mankind for A.J., and I'm gonna see about getting you back into Chandler Enterprises.
J.R.: It's time to be realistic.
Adam: Well, that doesn't mean we can't be hopeful.
J.R.: I need you, but not if you're gonna be in denial. This isn't going to be easy, and I need all the help I can get.
Adam: Ok, son. But the Chandler family -- we create our own, forge our own reality. We fight every fight until we win. That's the Chandler way.
[Monitor beeps rapidly]
Marissa: J.R.? No.
[Monitor beeps rapidly]
Marissa: What's wrong?! What's wrong? J.R.! J.R.! Dr. Kahn, what's going on?!
Dr. Kahn: Protocol can't keep pace with the disease.
Adam: Well, then give him something else, damn it!
Dr. Kahn: Mr. Chandler, I'm sorry. He's slipping into a coma.
Adam: No -- J.R.!
Erica: David, if you really meant what you said about Greenlee being suspicious, then maybe you shouldn't be here.
David: Is Gayle here? I'd like to say hi.
Erica: You really think I'd just keep her here, so you can just find her that easily?
David: You really like feeling like you're the one in charge, don't you?
Erica: Oh, I really like feeling like I am in charge.
Erica: Nobody knows where Gayle is but me.
[Door slams shut]
Gayle: When I heard that David and Greenlee when through with the wedding I just wanted to get as far away as possible.
Jake: And that's understandable.
Gayle: Even though Erica was so kind.
[Cell phone rings]
Gayle: Oh, she and David keep calling me. David.
Jake: Listen, it's gonna be all right, ok? We're gonna protect you. You're gonna be safe. That's why we're gonna keep you here. David would never think to look here. That's key to your safety, ok? If you're working with us --
Gayle: I haven't agreed to that yet, not while I could still go down with him. He married Greenlee, kissed her, and now they're probably off doing God knows what.
Jake: You hungry? Probably starving, right? I'll go down to the kitchen, try to rummage up a little something to eat, all right? Don't open this door to anybody, ok? There's a lock, but I don't see a key.
Greenlee: What are you doing here?
Jake: I, uh, lost my medical bag, and I thought I left it here a couple days ago, but I was wrong. So how are you for dinner?
Jake: I know a cute little Thai place out on Route 12. I thought maybe, you know --
Greenlee: Maybe another time.
Jake: That's right. You don't like spicy peanut sauce and stuff like that, right? You know what? Mexican, margaritas. What do you say? No, Sushi Palace. All-you-can-eat sushi. You just tell me where you want to go.
Greenlee: In there.
Erica: Come on, Gayle, pick up!
[Knock on door]
Ryan: I need you.
