[Music playing at the casino]

Tad: I wonder if I could talk to the manager about my credit line.

Croupier: Certainly, sir.

Manager: Problem?

Tad: Well, ha ha, that all depends on how you look at it. My name is Thaddeus. I think you can call me unlucky Thaddeus tonight.

Manager: We all have nights like that.

Tad: Yeah, well, that's the thing. I was wondering if you could see your way clear to upping my credit limit. Another $10,000. Give me a chance to win some of my money back.

Manager: We're all about second chances here.

Tad: Glad to hear it.

Manager: If you'll just sign this receipt.

Annie: Excuse me. Where do you think you're going?

Brooke: I'm going to check on Adam.

Annie: Like hell you are. I'll check on Adam.

Brooke: When it suits you and when it fits into your schedule?

Annie: I know what my husband needs. I am his wife.

Brooke: Well, then start acting like it.

Adam: Well, what's going on here?

Brooke: Ah, you're ok. Huh.

Adam: Well, why wouldn't I be? Ha! What?

Annie: Well, Brooke seems to think you might be at death's door -- or something.

Adam: Oh.

Brooke: Oh --

Krystal: Wow. Ha ha. I certainly didn't expect to walk out of here with a job.

Jackson: Wow, indeed. I didn't expect the answer to my problem to come walking in.

Krystal: Ha ha. I would get you some references from my old bosses --

Jackson: No need.

Krystal: But it's been such a long time, and you know what? To tell you the truth, I think they were more interested in my legs than my brains.

Jackson: Ha ha!

Krystal: Go figure.

Jackson: Well, you won't have that problem here.

Krystal: Oh, well, good.

Jackson: I promise you that.

Krystal: I just want to make sure.

Jackson: Be it ever so humble, welcome to my new office.

Erica: Oh. Well, you two sounded like you were having fun.

Jackson: Actually, we were just talking about work. Meet my new paralegal.

Erica: Really?

Jackson: Yeah.

Erica: Who knew? Ha ha! Well, my goodness, I guess, uh, congratulations are in order.

Krystal: Why, thank you. Thank you, Erica. And thank you, Jackson. I really can't tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity.

Jackson: I can't tell you how much you're helping me. Believe me. Thank you.

Krystal: Oh, woo! Woo! Woo! Oh, that's my phone. Oh, wow!

Jackson: Ha ha!

Krystal: Oh, great. Wow. What a way to start work. This is a very strange text, but I've got to take care of this.

Jackson: So what are you waiting for? Get.

Krystal: Thank you. Ok. Thank you.

Jackson: All right, we'll talk soon. All right, bye.

Krystal: Oh, bye -- bye, Erica.

Erica: Bye.

Jackson: Ha ha. Huh.

Erica: Really, Jack, I don't mean to keep interrupting your very busy social life like this.

Jackson: "My very busy social life"?

Erica: Yes. First Brooke, then Krystal -- Mr. Popular.

Greenlee: Hey, are those crop shots from the casino ready to look at?

Madison: They are in your box.

Greenlee: Did anyone think to tell me that's where they were? Ha! Any word from the new vendor?

Randi: Um, actually he hasn't returned any of my phone calls.

Greenlee: Oh, then drop him and move on.

Natalia: Hey, I was, um, wondering if I could see you for a sec?

Greenlee: Hey, glad you're here. I want to see you, too.

Natalia: Well, listen, um, my dad and I made peace. He put in a good word for me with I.A., and the upshot is I got my old job back on the force.

Greenlee: Oh. That's too bad. Pictures came out great. I was gonna offer you the job.

Natalia: You were?

Greenlee: Yeah, the offer's still good, too. I mean, it's not every day you can turn down five grand in order to write speeding tickets. But hey, it's your life.

Natalia: Five grand?

Liza: You know, you would have had a chance to make bail if you had turned yourself in like I told you right from the start.

David: You don't honestly believe that would have made any difference, do you?

Liza: It certainly couldn't have hurt.

David: It turned out exactly as I had hoped it would. Greenlee didn't show up for the arraignment. That's all I care about.

Liza: Ok. David, I'm telling you now, pushing Greenlee away will completely undermine your case. You need her to testify on your behalf.

David: I am not paying Greenlee beaucoup bucks to save me, Liza. I'm paying you.

Liza: Well, I'm trying here, but you, you keep hobbling me.

David: You know, that sounds dangerously like an excuse -- and excuses are for losers. So tell me, what's your plan to win this case, counselor?

Liza: All right, the first thing that we need to deal with is drugging Adam, because that's the one that carries with it the biggest penalties.

David: Well, I know we can't count on Adam, but he might be more solidly in my corner than you think.

Liza: How is that possible? I mean, his drugged state is what led him to kill Stuart.

David: I'll give you the details later. The fact is, he owes me now, so I might be able to call in the debt.

Liza: Ha ha. Yeah, you should definitely try that. All right. Moving on, we have -- right. Switching Greenlee's DNA and bribing the coroner. Well, we can deal with that one later.

David: You know something, I don't like the sound of this. You're playing defensive ball. What is your plan of attack to generate some reasonable doubt?

Liza: We need to find a way to discredit Nurse Gayle's testimony and to reveal every flaw in her character.

David: That's more like it.

Liza: Mmm.

David: So what the hell are you doing here? Get out there, find someone to help take her down. Guard! [Raps on bars]

[Phone rings]

Natalia: Hi. Um, so wait a minute. $5,000 to get my picture taken?

Greenlee: More than one picture, but yes. Kind of puts going back to being a cop in perspective, doesn't it?

Natalia: Ha. Well, I was wondering if it's possible to moonlight. You know, maybe my dad could reschedule around the photo shoot.

Greenlee: Well, more than one photo shoot, though, and of course, we'd have to renegotiate your salary higher -- if it's an ongoing process. Having second thoughts about your career, are you?

Natalia: I don't want to give up police work. I'm just -- I'm wondering if I can juggle both jobs.

Greenlee: Mmm. Wait. Maybe we can use that, the fact that you're not a pro model. I mean, you know, like on the beat by day, out on the town by night sort of thing.

Natalia: You think?

Greenlee: Well, it ties into the whole ad campaign.

Madison: Yeah, bringing out the natural beauty in every woman.

Greenlee: Have Legal draw up the contracts. I got to go. I'll be gone for a while. Welcome aboard.

[Music playing]

Tad: No offense, but your table sucks.

Croupier: Sorry I couldn't help you out, my friend.

Tad: Well, you're no friend of mine. Excuse me. I think I'm gonna go wash my hands, see if the next dealer turns my luck around.

Croupier: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: So how is it going?

Tad: Well, I'm having a boatload of fun losing all your money tonight, but I still can't spot your thief.

Ryan: Well, he's got to be out there someplace. I got too many customers complaining that they're losing chips.

Tad: Are you sure? I mean, when you stroll in a casino, you usually walk out with less. It goes with the dinner. That's kind of my experience.

Ryan: Yeah, well, thank you very much for the insight, but I don't want my clientele losing to anybody other than me.

Tad: Ok.

Ryan: That's the point here. If word gets out that this is a clip joint, then I'm not gonna have many customers left.

Tad: Well, for what it's worth, so far your customers are on the up and up, and that dealer is as straight as a teak pool cue. Honestly, he keeps his palms up for the camera, he covers his tray when he looks away, even covers his mouth when he sneezes.

Ryan: Are you sure he's not on the take from anybody?

Tad: Positive. I'll see how the next dealer rolls, but so far, you run an honest joint.

Ryan: Well, keep your eyes open. Our grifter could have a partner in the crowd someplace.

Tad: You're so cute when you talk con man.

[Ryan scoffs]

Tad: Don't you worry. I got a partner of my own.

Krystal: Wow! Mama needs a new pair of shoes! Go. Woo!

Brooke: I was just concerned that you were sleeping past lunch and surprised no one had awakened you.

Adam: Well, I wish somebody had, because I was hoping to be in my office by lunchtime. Ha! How are you holding up, J.R.?

J.R.: I'm pretty good. Uh, Marissa has to stay with Tad for a while. She came down with H1N1.

Adam: Oh.

J.R.: It's a mild case. The bottom line is with her over there, I can't get it.

Annie: Well, and luckily we've all been vaccinated. What about you, Brooke? Have you had all your shots?

Brooke: Yes. Thanks.

J.R.: I've got some good news. Annie and I have been invited by Congressman Wilton to go to D.C. to speak in front of a congressional subcommittee, and they want to publicize on Annie's generosity and help raise awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry.

Adam: You don't actually think you're ready to travel yet?

J.R.: Well, it shouldn't be happening for a while, and I'm feeling better every day. But don't worry. I won't go anywhere until I get my doctor's approval.

Adam: Well, that's quite an honor. Congratulations.

Annie: No. I haven't accepted yet or anything.

Brooke: Well, why wouldn't you?

Annie: Frankly, the idea of getting up and speaking in front of Congress scares the hell out of me.

Adam: Oh, nonsense. You'll be wonderful. Ha!

Brooke: Oh, listen, Adam. I'm gonna follow you to the office. I have a ton of legal paperwork for "Tempo" we need to go over.

J.R.: You don't like her much, do you?

Annie: Everybody fawns all over her. I don't trust her.

Erica: I'm just surprised you would hire Krystal, that's all.

Jackson: Why? She has experience.

Erica: Yes, I'm sure she does. I'm sure that she is quite well versed on all the legalities of the moonshine industry, but I didn't think that was your particular caseload.

Jackson: Erica, I would rather be in the trenches with somebody I know, a friend from the very get-go than have to go through three or four new hires before I find somebody I can work with.

Erica: Oh, don't get me wrong. Krystal and I are on much better terms now. I just think that you could do a lot better, Jack. I mean, especially if you're trying to jumpstart your career here.

Jackson: Do you realize what you're doing or are you just on autopilot?

Erica: I have no idea what you mean.

Jackson: I mean telling me what I should and shouldn't do.

Erica: Why would I ever want to do that?

Jackson: I don't know. Maybe you're just hardwired that way or maybe you just like to stir things up. Whichever it is, you're doing it.

Erica: There, you see. You just proved exactly what I was telling you before. Every time I try to get together with you, I try to act like a friend to you, you turn it around into something that it isn't.

Jackson: Meaning I expose it for what it really is.

Erica: No. Meaning that I always end up getting the blame for some nonexistent problem. But you know what, this time, maybe it was my fault. I never should have let you kiss me.

Krystal: I'm feeling lucky.

Ryan: Really, Tad? Are you sure about this? Are you sure Krystal is up for this?

Tad: You never played Texas Hold 'em with a woman. One hand with her and her trucker buddies, you'd never ask that question again.

Ryan: Really? Deal me in next time.

Tad: No. Leave her to it. She knows what she's doing. She was born for this. You just text her what you need, she'll take care of it.

Krystal: Woo! All right. Mama's got a new pair of shoes. Now Mama needs a new pair of earrings, huh?

Ryan: Ok, how about you head back to the table, you find this thief, so she doesn't take all my money.

Tad: Yeah, about that. I'm gonna need some more chips.

Ryan: Are you serious? You could try to win every once in a while, ok?

Tad: Who says I'm not? Well, it sounds like a lucky table. What do you say, sir? Maybe this fine-looking specimen will bring me some luck, huh?

Krystal: I don't bring luck. I make it.

Tad: Really? Just how do you do that?

Krystal: Oh, a couple things my mama taught me.

Tad: Is this the mama with the new pair of shoes?

Krystal: That's the one. Hit me. First thing my mama drummed into my pretty little head is never gamble with your legs crossed.

Tad: Well, that's a hell of a rule.

Krystal: Well, it doesn't work all the time, but blackjack. Ha ha!

Tad: Oh. Ho.

Krystal: Woo-hoo!

Tad: Ow. Well, you want to be careful. You're gonna lose your mama's new shoelaces.

Krystal: Oh, no. I don't like to keep too close track of those puppies in case I start to lose, you know.

Tad: Really?

Ryan: How is everything down here?

Krystal: You want to rub me for good luck, too?

Tad: Hell, I didn't know that was an option.

Ryan: Uh, well, actually I own the place. I just wanted to come and make sure everybody was feeling happy.

Tad: Happy? Does her and her mother's new wardrobe look unhappy?

Krystal: Ha ha. My compliments to the house, but I am gonna take all your money.

Ryan: Really? Next round is on me.

Krystal: Thank you.

Tad: [Babbles] Let's get back to those lucky rules. You got to be wearing that hat for luck.

Krystal: Actually, the hat belongs to my ex-mother-in-law. Found it in the back seat on the way over here, and I just thought, why the heck not.

Ryan: Your ex-mother-in-law. Now, what man would be fool enough to let you go?

Krystal: Oh --

Tad: Well, you know what they say, lucky at cards, unlucky --

Krystal: Ah. Last man that said that to me walked away with a fat lip. Bam. Read 'em and weep.

Brooke: You know what you're like? You're like a kid who's sneaking out of class to go buy some forbidden sweets.

Adam: Forced into it by you and those evil doctors.

Brooke: Mmm.

Adam: You know, no desserts, no scotch. I might as well be dead.

Brooke: Well, you will be if you keep on doing this.

Adam: No, no, no. I'm a very good boy. I deserve a little treat.

Brooke: All right, I won't tell.

Adam: Hmm.

Brooke: You know, I am sorry about what happened today, about letting Annie see how concerned I was about you. But I promise you, I have not said a word to anybody about your health condition.

Adam: I know.

Brooke: It's just hard to know when to step in. You know, I'm the only one who really knows just how sick you are.

Adam: Yeah, but you step in anytime you want. It's nice to know somebody with nothing to gain actually cares about you.

Brooke: Ha ha!

J.R.: Oh, come on, Annie. You can't be afraid of Brooke stealing my father away. They're just old friends.

Annie: And old lovers and ex-spouses, but who's counting?

J.R.: You are, I guess.

Annie: You saw the way she reacted when she found out he overslept. That's not normal.

J.R.: Yeah, exes can be friends. It doesn't mean they have to jump right back into bed or back into mortal combat with each other.

Annie: That is the traditional route.

J.R.: Well, people change and so do their feelings about the people that they've loved over years -- or hated.

Annie: You're not just talking about Adam and Brooke, are you?

J.R.: Take it however you want. Door's open.

Annie: If you are still trying to convince me that you have transformed your opinion of me, sorry, J.R., I'm not buying it.

J.R.: You know, Annie, I just don't have it in me to offer you the olive branch anymore. If you don't want it, that's on you.

Annie: That is not exactly what I said.

J.R.: Whatever. I've got bigger battles than trying to pummel you into being my friend.

Annie: I'm sorry if it's a little bit hard to accept. You know, I -- I can't deal with this right now. I'm a little freaked out about the whole idea of speaking before Congress. You know what? I -- I'm crazy. I can't do it. I'm sorry. You're gonna have to tell them my answer is no.

J.R.: They don't want to indict you, Annie; they want to commend you -- for saving my life.

Adam: All I needed was a taste.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. [Yawns] Oh, excuse me.

Adam: You look tired.

Brooke: Oh, I just, uh, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night 'cause Jamie called just as I was dozing off.

Adam: Is everything all right?

Brooke: Oh, fine, fine, great, in fact. You know, it's just, uh, it's just the, uh, you know, the time difference makes for odd-hour phone calls, that's all.

Adam: What is it, Brooke? What's wrong?

Brooke: Huh. Everything.

[Indistinct chatter and music playing]

Krystal: Woo! Yeah! [Cheering] Woo! Way to go, ace! Hey, bet it all. Go big or go home, that's what I say.

Man: Bust! Bust! Come on.

Ryan: Craig. So how's the daily take looking?

Craig: Pretty good for a weekday, Mr. Lavery.

Ryan: I'm not talking about the casino. I'm talking about this. How long you been doing this? How long you been palming chips from the customers?

Craig: Ah, it's not like that.

Ryan: Oh, really, it's not?

Tad: Hey, remember me? Unlucky Thaddeus? I guess it's unlucky for you that I got good eyes.

Krystal: And I was counting my pretty, little chips.

Ryan: Oh, look at this. Looks like Mama's got a new pair of handcuffs.

Krystal: Nice work.

Tad: Ha! Nice hat. Good job, man. Thank you for stepping in and saving the day, sugar.

Krystal: I have to say, you did seem a little bit happier doing this than your usual P.I. work.

Tad: Well, why shouldn't I be? My usual P.I. work I'm praying that some slob doesn't come stumbling out of a motel with a girl named Lollipop.

Krystal: Ha ha.

Tad: This was a walk in the park.

Ryan: Well, I owe you guys. I owe you both. Thank you very much. Good pick up, man.

Tad: I don't know. His top hand was invisible. I didn't see a thing.

Ryan: Really?

Tad: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: Well, then, how did you know he was our guy?

Krystal: Well, I noticed that my chips were down by about 100 bucks.

Tad: And he's the only one that didn't look away.

Ryan: Well, like I said, thank you. I owe you both. Let me treat you to something, anything. What do you want?

Krystal: You know what? I would love to stay and play "Oceans 11, 12, and 13" with you, but I got to go to the hospital, pick up some medicine for Marissa, so --

Tad: Well, give her my love. I'm sure the Rat Pack can clean up around here.

Ryan: Thank you. Thank you again, ok?

Krystal: Take care.

Ryan: All right. Whew.

Tad: I'm sorry. I know it sucks when you find out one of your employees has been stealing, but -- it was a whole lot of fun.

Ryan: Well, isn't that nice. I'm glad I could provide some entertainment for you, but now I'm out a casino manager.

Tad: Oh, come on, man. You put out the word, you'll come up with somebody, 10 minutes.

Ryan: I've already got a backload of work at Cambias. I mean, I love getting this place back in order. I love it. But it's just taking up all my time, that's all.

Tad: Wow. Too many successful businesses. That's a quality problem, my friend.

Ryan: You wouldn't be looking for a new job, would you?

Jackson: Ha ha. My God, woman, are you intentionally trying to drive me crazy?

Erica: Of course not. I just should have known better, that's all. Instead of stopping your advances, I encouraged them.

Jackson: Oh, now, wait. Just for the record, you did not let me kiss you. I stole that kiss fair and square.

Erica: What are you getting so worked up about?

Jackson: Don't play innocent. Don't play innocent with me. You know what you've been doing to me since the first day I got back here. Tell me who I should and shouldn't hire, pushing me away, then unintentionally running into me.

Erica: Oh, boy. Next you're gonna say that you saw me behind the grassy knoll.

Jackson: Ah, ah. But you can't hide your feelings. I saw that look in your eye when Brooke met me for lunch. And just now when I was having an innocent laugh with Krystal.

Erica: Really, Jack, this is just beneath you.

Jackson: "Don't get too close, Jack. We can't go there again, Jack." Warning, warning. You know what? It would be flattering if it wasn't so annoying. So I tell you what, if you're not gonna let me into your life, don't you dare try to control mine.

Greenlee: Hey.

David: Ah. What are you doing here?

Greenlee: Can't keep me away that easily.

David: Well, at least you didn't show up at the arraignment.

Greenlee: That was a done deal before it even started. No reason for me to be there. Besides, I had to wrap up some things at Fusion so I can devote myself to your case from now on.

David: You can't do that. You can't even show up in court.

Greenlee: I know you want to protect me, but I'm going to be at this trial every day whether you like it or not.

David: Greenlee, you don't understand, and I have to get you to understand. You show up at that trial, and you'll be convicting me.

Greenlee: What are you talking about, convicting you?

David: Don't you get it? If you show up in court, all anyone is gonna see is the woman I victimized.

Greenlee: I am nobody's victim.

David: Look, you can shout that from the rooftops, how you agreed after the fact with all the decisions I made, but the issue is they were my decisions to make. You have to see how the D.A. is gonna spin that.

Greenlee: Those are the words of a paranoid man. And you, David, are the least paranoid man I know. You don't believe I'll come off looking the victim anymore than I do, which means you're lying to me.

Krystal: Well, just talked to Angie. She told me what you were up to. Have you lost it?

Liza: Hello to you, too, Krystal.

Krystal: You are representing David. You're defending him against all charges.

Liza: Yes, I'm his attorney. That's what attorneys do.

Krystal: And you're gonna try to pass all those charges off on that poor Nurse Gayle, huh?

Liza: Ok, what I'm doing is collecting character witnesses.

Krystal: Oh, well, they don't exist. Oh, but he has money, so I guess you can buy them?

Liza: Ha. Are we done here?

Krystal: I-I'm just blown away that he would hire you as his lawyer.

Liza: Well, you know, everybody is entitled to one and to a trial by jury, not innuendo.

Krystal: Wait a minute. That's why Tad broke up with you, right? Because you're defending David.

Liza: Are you kidding me? Krystal, you know, you really have to stop playing the innocent when it comes to me and Tad.

J.R.: How are you feeling?

Marissa: Pretty lousy, but not terrible. It's more of a piglet flu than full-blown swine.

J.R.: Well, I've, uh, I've got great news. Annie and I got invited to D.C. to speak on bone marrow donations.

Marissa: Wow, that's incredible. I-I'm not so crazy about the idea of you leaving the house, though.

J.R.: I won't do it till my doctors say that it's ok. And besides, I'm not even sure if we're gonna go yet.

[Phone beeps]

J.R.: You know what, I have to go. That's the congressman's office on the other line right now. Ok, ok.

[Phone beeps]

J.R.: Yeah, hello. Yes, yes. We were just discussing this. We're gonna have to get right back to you. Ok? All right. They want to know if we're gonna do this thing.

Annie: Why are they pushing so hard for an answer?

J.R.: I don't know. It's the Congress. They've got a lot to schedule.

Annie: Ah! The thought of Congress and lawyers and being in front of all those cameras just --

J.R.: All those cameras are the reason why we have to do this. I mean, you're promoting awareness for the national database. You're celebrating people who help others just like you helped me. Come on, Annie, this is a lot bigger than your stage fright. This is about saving people's lives.

Adam: From the way you're describing this, you sound a little lost.

Brooke: Well, you know, I mean, the kids are great. They really are. It's just that I, um, you know, I never -- I never really get a chance to see them because Jamie's in Africa and Laura's in China, and you know, I hardly ever hear from her.

Adam: From what I remember of Laura, from her, no news is usually good news. Ha ha!

Brooke: Ha ha! No, you're right. If she had a problem, my phone would be ringing off the wall.

Adam: So, what's really bothering you?

Brooke: I guess I'm just looking, you know, down the road to the next thing. You know, being back here, I think it's sort of unleashed this dormant empty nest syndrome. I mean, that's why I'm so, you know, happy to be back at "Tempo," I really am, because I feel like, you know, it's gonna fill this big, empty hole.

Adam: Yeah.

Brooke: I'm blathering on.

Adam: No, no. You don't blather. You're too remarkable a woman for that. You -- you are a wonderful mother who's raised two great children, and even though they may not require as much feeding and care as my offspring do.

Brooke: Ha ha! Oh, is that why they still live with you, because they're hothouse flowers or is it just because you cannot bear to let them go?

Adam: Are you calling me a control freak?

Brooke: Ha!

Adam: Hmm? Hmm?

Brooke: I wouldn't be so presumptuous as to do that. Are you kidding? Ha!

Erica: I'm sorry, Jack. I thought you could handle the idea of our being close friends. Apparently I was mistaken.

Jackson: Did you have a reason for coming here?

Erica: To ask you out on a date. You can forget about that now.

Krystal: You really think that I had something to do with you two breaking up?

Liza: No, no. Why? You were just the woman he was living with and being his confidante and taking care of his kids and playing the good, little wifey.

Krystal: Huh. Or maybe he just realized that he's not that into you.

Liza: Well, you were certainly into him, and you were working that, weren't you?

Krystal: Oh, like hell I was.

Liza: You know what the most ironic part about the whole thing is? While you're off trying to mend Tad's little broken heart, I'm gonna be exonerating the guy that you left him for in the first place, the man you were sleeping with when you were still married to Tad. Yeah, how about this? I'm gonna go get him off so that you can go do it again. How about that for sisterhood?

Krystal: Unbelievable.

Liza: Listen, Krystal, I may get blamed for a lot of things, but at least my dirty cards, well, they're on the table.

Krystal: Huh.

Tad: Ryan, I can't take on a full-time position right now.

Ryan: Ok. Well, just start part time, I mean, until I find somebody permanent.

Tad: I got three P.I. cases pending as it is.

Ryan: All right, we'll just work you in slowly until you wrap those up. Come on, man.

Tad: I love you, but I got too much on my plate.

Ryan: Ok. Ok. I just had to ask just in case I got lucky, that's all.

Tad: All right.

Ryan: Thank you for tonight.

Tad: You're welcome.

Erica: Do you have any colors for me yet?

Randi: Yes. I have some reds I thought you'd like.

Erica: And, uh, what about Greenlee? What's she up to?

Randi: Um, I'm not sure. Maybe Madison could --

Jackson: You. I want to have a word with you. In your office.

Erica: What are you doing here? Anything you have to say to me you can say to me right here, and say it quickly, please. I'm quite busy.

Jackson: All right, I want you to stop playing me like a fish, reeling me in, then letting out this line but never letting me off the hook. I want you to stop playing games, and I want you to stop running away from me.

Erica: I do not run away from you or anyone else. Now, I'm asking you civilly to go away. I have work to do.

Jackson: You -- did you see that? That's her running away. Excuse me. You're not getting rid of me that easily.

Greenlee: Why are you fighting me on this?

David: I'm just trying to get you to see why you can't help me with this. It's a matter of perception.

Greenlee: I can help you plenty. You just don't want me to for some reason. What is it, David? The big alpha male has to prove that he can do this all on his own? Is that it? Some macho thing?

David: No. It's just what I said it is, ok? I'm afraid you're gonna hurt my chances in court.

Greenlee: This is about something else entirely. I can see it in your eyes.

David: Fine.

Greenlee: You might be able to lie to the rest of the town, David, but you can't lie to me, not for long anyway.

David: Would you knock it off with the speculations, please?

Greenlee: Something else is going on here, and so help me, I'm going to find out what.

Ryan: Listen, man, it all went down very smoothly. Thank you for being right where we needed you.

Security Guard: No problem, Mr. Lavery.

Ryan: Ok. Hey, what's up?

Tad: One question. Can I wear a tuxedo? You know, like they do in "The Sting"?

Ryan: As long as you're working here, you can wear whatever you want.

Tad: Deal.

[Tad and Ryan shake hands]

Erica: I told you I'm too busy for this.

Jackson: You're not too busy. You're too scared.

Erica: Oh, enough of that already. You have never scared me.

Jackson: All right, fine. You're busy. You're busy avoiding the issue. I can't tell if you're lying to me or lying to yourself!

Erica: Jack, I stopped lying to myself a long time ago, and as for lying to you, read my lips: I'm not scared.

Jackson: And such nice lips. Prove it.

Erica: And how do you propose I do that since you can't see past your own delusions?

Jackson: Go ahead and ask me out on that date.

Erica: And that proves what?

Jackson: That you're not too scared to have a date with me by having a date with me.

Erica: All right, fine. Yes, a date. Whatever.

Jackson: When? Where?

Erica: Now. Here. Downstairs. ConFusion.

Brooke: I just want to apologize again for getting so upset in front of Annie because you overslept.

Adam: Oh, yeah. No, it's already forgotten. As a matter of fact, I -- I had the best night's sleep I've had in weeks. Ha. Great dreams, too.

Brooke: What were they?

Adam: Well, I don't -- I can't quite remember. I just know that I woke up happier than I'd been in a long, long time.

[Adam remembers dreaming of sleeping with Brooke]

Brooke: Adam? What is it?

Krystal: Hey, how you feeling?

Marissa: Pretty flu-ish right now. Yeah, I'm thinking that I'll just go stay at the Yacht Club.

Krystal: Oh, no. No worries. We've all had our H1N1 shots. This is the perfect place for you to recover.

Marissa: I really, really appreciate it, you know? You've made such a nice home here for Jenny and Kathy and for Opal. Even for Damon. And now here I am, another orphan for you to take care of. You deserve a lot of credit.

Krystal: Oh. Maybe some people think so.

Marissa: In fact, you made it so nice here I feel even more like I've abandoned J.R.

Krystal: Oh, listen. Staying away from J.R. is the best thing that you could do for him right now.

Marissa: I know, I know. I know. And, like, things seem to have quieted down there a bit. I think he's even trying to bury the hatchet with Annie.

J.R.: All right, I'm gonna call the congressman's office and let them know this thing is on.

Annie: Ok.

J.R.: Ok.

Annie: I am going to find something to wear.

J.R.: All right. Hello, Congressman Wilton. This is J.R. Chandler. I just wanted to let you know that my stepmother, Annie Chandler, will appear in front of the committee. And so will I as long as my doctor agrees. I also just wanted to say thank you for doing this favor for my family. Um, I realize you didn't intend on having any witnesses, but, uh, this helps out a lot. And just make sure that you don't tell my stepmother that this was all my idea.

David: I swear to you, I am not keeping anything from you.

Greenlee: Is it Liza, then? Is she putting these doubts in your head?

David: You're kidding, right? She's fighting me on this as much as you are. She wants you to testify.

Greenlee: You're leaving me out of something.

David: I'm sorry if you feel that way. You're the last person in the world I'd want to hurt, but, Greenlee, you have to understand -- I'm fighting for my life here, and you just cannot be a part of that battle.

Greenlee: I can if you let me. I can't if you shut me out.

David: Call it that way if you want.

Greenlee: I can handle whatever life smacks me with from now on. This isn't about something that could happen, though, is it? This is about something that already happened.

David: I don't know what you're talking about.

Greenlee: Something happened or you wouldn't be fighting this hard to keep me out of that courtroom. What is it, David?

David: Nothing.

Greenlee: Say it. What happened that you're trying so hard to hide?
