Angie: Where did it go?

Jesse: What?

Angie: The patient assessment report from David Hayward. It was right here.

Jesse: This?

Angie: Yeah. How did it get in your pile?

Jesse: Uh, I got paperwork on him, too, because of that scandalous mess over at Fusion.

Angie: [Sighs] Aren't we lucky? We both get to deal with him.

Jesse: Hmm. You know what? This is great. This ain't right. The whole point for this breakfast was to be away from work. Look at us. This is -- we should just throw in the towel, right?

Angie: No, I'll get more done here, where it's quiet.

Jesse: [Sighs] You're right, because this place is quiet, like a church.

Angie: Well, at least I don't have to say a prayer before I walk through the door.

Jesse: You pray before you go to the hospital?

Angie: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the strength not to murder David Hayward.

Jesse: [Chuckles] Yeah. While you're talking to him, could you get him to grant me some of that, too? [Laughs]

J.R.: Hey.

Marissa: Hey.

J.R.: Listen. I feel really bad about how things played out yesterday. I was hoping we could take A.J. to the park or the zoo.

Marissa: You know that Annie's having Emma's birthday today, right?

J.R.: Exactly. We stick around, it's like we're supporting Annie, like she has a right to be in this house. Come on, let's round up A.J.

[Annie laughing]

A.J.: Can I really wear this?

Annie: You can do whatever you want to, sweetheart.

Ryan: No. No dessert for you, but I hope you save room, because we have a special birthday cake for you waiting at home. How does that sound? Hey.

Emma: Tell Madison she has to come to my party.

Ryan: [Inhales] Yes. Well, you're more than welcome to come. Big -- big shindig at Chandler's.

Madison: Well, that sounds like a family thing.

[Ryan chuckles]

Emma: Friends are coming, too.

Madison: Oh, you really want me to come, huh?

Emma: You can sit next to Greenlee.

Greenlee: Don't look at me like that. I didn't do anything. Ok, so I set you up with the whole money skimming, but sabotaging the plane -- huh -- why am I talking to you? I'm not talking to you.

David: What did you get her?

Greenlee: Who?

David: Emma. Who did you think I was talking about?

Greenlee: I can't help thinking instead of a birthday party, I should dress for a funeral. 

David: There aren't going to be any funerals. Not one mention of a plane crash anywhere.

Greenlee: I know. I've also been checking the Internet since 3:00 a.m.

David: Yeah, I thought I heard you get up this morning.

Greenlee: I couldn't sleep.

David: Well, no news is good news, right?

Greenlee: Unless it isn't.

David: Planes don't just fall out of the sky without someone noticing.

Greenlee: You still think Erica's out there, waiting to make her next move?

David: Yeah, I do. She knows what you did to her, Greenlee. That you set her up to look like she was stealing from the Miranda Center. So yes, I think she's out there. I think she's planning her next counterattack.

Greenlee: It's just as possible the plane crashed, and they haven't found it yet.

David: Greenlee, we can't change what happened, but we can protect ourselves, which is exactly what we need to do. So why don't we just go home, all right? Figure out our next move.

Greenlee: No, I promised Emma I'd go to her birthday party.

David: I'm sure Ryan can come up with an excuse.

Greenlee: I'm not going to break my promise to that little girl, just because you don't want me anywhere near her father.

David: This isn't about me trying to keep you away from Ryan.

Greenlee: Isn't it?

David: Greenlee, I just walked in and saw you talking to this picture of Erica.

Greenlee: Yeah, yeah. She's kind of on my mind.

David: Yeah, I know. That's what I'm talking about. So you don't need to be at a party right now.

Greenlee: Yes, I do. If I blow it off, it'll be suspicious.

David: Greenlee --

Greenlee: I'll be fine. Just go to work, ok? I'll see you later.

David: Ok. All right. Have a good time.

Angie: I am not going to let David ruin my hospital.

Jesse: "Your hospital"?

Angie: You know what I mean.

Jesse: Yeah, I know what you mean. But you know what? You can't let that man run your life, either. You do remember life, right? The thing that happens to us when we're not working.

Angie: It sounds familiar.

Jesse: Yeah, it sounds familiar. I can refresh your memory if you like.

Angie: Oh, I bet you can.

Jesse: Mm-hmm.

Angie: Baby, I just need a few weeks, that's all. What?

Jesse: But you really think this is going to be over in a few weeks?

Angie: [Sighs] Jesse, what am I supposed to do? Back off and let him tear apart the hospital piece by piece?

Jesse: I don't know. Maybe you should try a different approach, find another way.

Angie: Another way?

Jesse: Angela Hubbard is the brightest, toughest woman I know, but she can also be cunning/sweet whenever she needs to be.

Angie: "Sweet"? To David? I know I better do some more praying.

Jesse: [Chuckles]

Emma: Yesterday, I had my friends from school party. Today it's time for grownups to have fun. Greenlee's always fun.

Ryan: Yeah -- hey, Emms, you know what happened? I forgot to tip James. Will you run up there and give that to him for me?

Emma: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: Thank you.

Emma: Don't forget my party.

[Ryan chuckles]

Madison: She's a great kid.

Ryan: Yes, she is. She really wants you to come to her party.

Madison: Mm-hmm, to sit next to Greenlee, who she loves, apparently.

Ryan: Yes, well, you know, Greenlee almost became a second mother to her, so --

Madison: Well, I'll think of some sort of excuse as to why I can't come.

Ryan: You don't have to.

Madison: I think it would be better for everybody.

Ryan: Ok. Cool. You'll probably be glad you missed it. I mean, I don't even want to think about what Annie's got planned for the day.

Annie: And the best part is, you and Emma will be the only kids, which makes you two extra special.

A.J.: Yes!

Annie: Yes!

Marissa: If you don't want to stay, say something.

J.R.: Did you see how pumped A.J. was? I don't want to crush him.

A.J.: Can you help me wrap Emma's gift?

Marissa: You know what? I'm going to let your daddy do that, because I'm going to stay down here and help Annie get ready for the party.

J.R.: What are you going to do?

Marissa: Don't worry. I'm not going to strangle her with ribbons.

J.R.: Ok, buddy. I don't know anything about this, so you're going to have to help me, ok?

Annie: I think I'm pretty much done with all the decorations.

Marissa: What is wrong with you?

Annie: Excuse me?

Marissa: Did you actually think that J.R. and I would want anything to do with your little party?

Annie: Um, I didn't see him protesting.

Marissa: He doesn't want to disappoint A.J. He is just as disgusted as I am that you would use our kid to get what you want.

Annie: This is what Emma wants.

Marissa: Oh.

Annie: And I really thought you would be a bigger person, Marissa. I thought you could put your personal opinions of me aside just today for the sake of my sweet little girl.

Marissa: Huh! Why do you even need an adult party? Didn't you get enough attention yesterday? Or do you need forced photo opportunities to pose with my husband in our house?

Annie: This isn't about me.

Marissa: Oh, it is always about you, Annie. But that's going to stop. I don't care what Scott says. The minute that leak is fixed in the gatehouse, you are out of this house.

Annie: Wow. I really thought we could all get along just today as a family, and I am really sorry and it is really sad that you couldn't get over your bitterness to see that.

[Marissa sighs]

A.J.: Maybe Polly used up all the wrapping paper on the rest of Emma's gifts.

J.R.: Well, that doesn't help us, does it?

A.J.: Are you mad at me, Dad?

J.R.: Of course not.

A.J.: Are you and Mommy Marissa in another fight?

J.R.: No.

A.J.: How come you don't smile at each other anymore?

J.R.: [Sighs] Why don't you take a seat next to me? Remember how I was in the hospital and you said this house feels empty without me? That's exactly how I feel about Grandpa. Ever since he's been gone, nothing's the way that it's supposed to be. But it will get back to normal, I promise.

A.J.: How long will that take?

J.R.: I'm not sure. But whatever happens, you'll be taken care of. Because you're a Chandler, and that makes you part of a very unique, very special group. Your grandpa started something and it's up to us to keep it going. Now, there will be people that come in our lives from time to time that pretend that they belong, but only the people that are born into the family -- the true Chandlers -- are forever connected by blood. That means we will always have each other's back. We'll always be the last men standing.

Angie: Kill 'em with kindness.

Frankie: Good. You're here.

Angie: Hey, baby.

Frankie: The staff was starting to wonder if Hayward put you in a dungeon somewhere.

Angie: What's going on?

Frankie: The man reduced attending with every shift along with two nurses.

Angie: And of course, he made this change while I wasn't here.

Frankie: Hmm. Welcome to Hayward Hospital.

Angie: This isn't going to stand. You need to let people know that we are not going down without a fight.

Frankie: You think you can take him on?

Angie: Oh, I know I can. I don't care if I have to work 24 hours a day, I will keep this hospital on its feet. I want the staff to understand that we will not compromise, that we won't make one change that hurts the patients. And I will fight David over every cut, every decision he makes.

David: Oh, that's just what this hospital needs -- a good pep talk. Would you like me to set up the intercom for you?

Madison: Greenlee Hayward's statement stands on its own. I'm sure we'll get a full explanation about the Miranda scandal from Miss Kane upon her return.

Jesse: Hey, you're pretty smooth when it comes to dodging the tough questions, huh?

Madison: Oh, I wasn't dodging anything.

Jesse: Hey, I come in peace. Randi told me about how Hayward was trying to blackmail you about your husband.

Madison: I did not mention your involvement at all.

Jesse: No, I -- I know, I know. And I appreciate it. Randi also said that you took him on pretty strong.

Madison: Hmm. David wasn't really after me, anyway. He's just paranoid about losing Greenlee to Ryan.

Jesse: Yeah, and it doesn't look too good for him, does it?

[Phone rings]

J.R.: Don't you ever forget what I told you.

A.J.: I won't.

J.R.: All right.

A.J.: Ok.

J.R.: Listen, why don't you see if you can find Polly? See if she knows where that wrapping paper is.

A.J.: Ok.

J.R.: Ok.

Scott: Well, that was some speech to your son.

J.R.: [Chuckles] You heard that, did you?

Scott: Yeah. Might as well instill that "us versus them" attitude at an early age -- the same way Uncle Adam did with you.

J.R.: Helps to know your enemies, Scott.

Scott: I am not your enemy, J.R.

J.R.: You're friends with one of my enemies -- it's just as bad.

Scott: Here we go again.

J.R.: You want to be Annie's hero, there will be consequences.

[Doorbell rings]

Annie: I'll get it. [Gasps] Hi!

Ryan: Hey.

Annie: Oh, I was beginning to wonder if your daddy was ever going to bring you back.

Ryan: You knew we were going out to breakfast, so --

Annie: Did you really have to take up her entire morning, Ryan?

Ryan: Uh --

Annie: Ok. Are you ready for party number two, birthday girl?

Ryan: Hey, Annie, I got to talk to you --

Annie: Not right now, Ryan. I have a big surprise for you out back.

Emma: Is it a pony?

Ryan: I really need to tell you --

Annie: Please, Ryan. It's not a pony, but that is a very good guess.

[Doorbell rings]

Annie: Oh! More birthday guests.

[Emma chuckles]

Annie: Yeah.

Greenlee: Hello, Annie.

Annie: What are you doing here?

Emma: You came!

Greenlee: Hello. I promised, didn't I? You want to show me where this goes?

Emma: Yeah.

Greenlee: Ok. It's your daughter's birthday. Chill.

Ryan: I tried to warn you she was coming. Emma really wanted her to.

Annie: Well, it's too bad Greenlee didn't have the good taste not to show.

Ryan: Greenlee doesn't even have you on her radar anymore, Annie.

Annie: Well, I have her on mine, Ryan. [Sighs] Whew.

Scott: You ok?

Annie: I was ok until my ex-husband's ex-fiancée showed up.

Scott: Ok, ok, ok. You're still ok. Come on. Come on.

[As children's party music plays, J.R. goes upstairs]

A.J.: Can I have more punch?

Marissa: Of course, sweetie.

Scott: You are the host of this party. Do not let Greenlee or anyone else get to you, ok?

Annie: Excuse me. Hi. I just want to thank everyone for coming to celebrate my Emma. Her sixth year has certainly been a memorable one, starting with when we moved in here and became a part of the big, wonderful Chandler dynasty. And I'm sure this year will be everything we want it to be. So, that being said, what does my princess want to do first?

Emma: Open presents.

Annie: I thought you might say that one. Here, Mommy picked this out all by herself.

[Annie laughs]

Emma: Is it ok if I open Greenlee's first?

Annie: Yeah, of course.

Greenlee: Yes. Here, I'll hold it.

Emma: Thanks.

[Greenlee giggles]

Emma: Oops.

Ryan: Oh.

Emma: You remembered!

Greenlee: How could I forget?

Ryan: Beautiful.

Emma: This is exactly what I wanted.

Greenlee: [Squeals] Ha ha!

Annie: Of course, it is. Excuse me for one second. [Sighs]

J.R.: [Sighs] Suck it up, J.R. She'll be gone soon enough. Ok. [Opens his bedroom and sees Annie]

Jesse: If Hayward continues to mess with you, you need to let me know.

Madison: I doubt he will, now that Greenlee's on to him.

Jesse: Greenlee -- is she around? I need to talk to her.

Madison: She's going to be out for at least a few hours.

Jesse: Huh. Maybe you can answer a few questions for me.

Madison: Well, when you're as low on the totem pole as I am, they pretty much keep you in the dark about everything.

Jesse: Well, I don't know about that. Ahem. It could be a good place to be to see what's really going on. Speaking of which -- how's the climate been around here since that whole brouhaha hit the fan?

Madison: Well, it was pretty chaotic at first. No one knew what it was going to mean for Fusion. But Greenlee really stepped up. She reassured the staff and the media that this company was going to come out of this crisis bigger and better.

Jesse: So in a way, Erica's being gone is really good for Greenlee?

[Elevator door opens]

Jesse: You know, she got to step up, lead. No interference.

Frankie: Dad? What are you doing here?

Jesse: I'm working. What are you doing here? What's up?

Frankie: All right, what's up? I'm looking for my wife. Have you seen her?

Madison: No, I haven't seen her.

Jesse: So you're coming from work?

Frankie: Yeah, after a brutal shift.

Jesse: Hmm. You see your mother?

Frankie: I did, actually, and she's in full battle mode.

Jesse: Yeah. Hayward?

Frankie: Who else?

Jesse: [Chuckles] Yeah, she said she was going to try to be nice to him. Huh. Whew.

Frankie: Now, what are the odds on that happening?

Jesse: Hmm. Well, you know what? If I didn't despise the man so much, I'd almost feel bad for him.

Frankie: Hmm.

Angie: Here are the hospital evaluations that the staff filled out. Am I keeping you from something?

David: No. Just checking for new messages.

Angie: Hoping your wife might be checking in?

David: My wife?

Angie: Well, big scandal over at Fusion, according to Jesse.

David: All right, let's get down to hospital business here.

Angie: [Sighs] Um -- does it matter to you or do you care that the people you employ are satisfied with their work environment?

David: It's not our job to keep the staff happy. It's their job to get the patients in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible. If anyone has a problem with that --

Angie: We can quit?

David: You said it, not me.

Angie: David, what happened to you? I mean, you used to care about the important things in this hospital.

David: Oh, I still care, Angela. But you see, one of the important things of this hospital happens to be the bottom line. Look, I'll tell you what. Here's a suggestion. Why don't we cut a few jobs? That way, the dissatisfied people who get to stay will realize how lucky they are to have a job, and they'll stop complaining.

Angie: Well, you do realize that what you're proposing is an environment driven by fear?

David: Well, better than whining about how hard they have it, don't you think?

Angie: You know, this isn't working.

David: Well, I tried to warn you, didn't I?

Angie: Oh, you warned me, all right.

David: Well, I wouldn't dream about keeping you on, Angela, if you're not happy here.

Angie: David, I'm not going anywhere. But you and I are going to have to learn to work together without wanting to kill each other.

David: [Chuckles] Do you really think that's possible?

Angie: Well, I'm willing to try if you are.

David: And what are you suggesting?

Angie: Dinner.

David: With you? A double date?

Angie: Well, I'm not suggesting going to a movie and sharing popcorn.

David: But you want to sit across a table from me?

Angie: Yes, I do. I think it'll be great for all of us. A little common ground.

David: All right. I'm in. I'll tell you what. Since I'm your superior, I'll even treat. Nice job on this.

Angie: What the hell am I thinking?

Ryan: Well, you certainly made Emma's day.

Greenlee: She made mine.

Ryan: Is David ok with you being here?

Greenlee: Of course.

Ryan: No, not of course.

Greenlee: It's my decision.

Ryan: Well, you made the right one.

Greenlee: Yeah. I needed this today. So, Emma -- [Giggles] Do you have a birthday wish?

Emma: I'll have to whisper it, or it won't come true.

Greenlee: Ok. Mm-hmm?

Emma: I wish Erica was here. Next to you, she gives the best presents. 

Greenlee: There's the princess.

Ryan: Yeah, that's fantastic.

[Greenlee laughs]

Emma: Is Erica coming home soon?

Ryan: I am sure she is, sweetheart.

Emma: Is she on a business trip, Greenlee?

Greenlee: That's right. That's right. You know Erica. She's always working.

Ryan: Yeah. And she'd be here if she could, but when she comes back, I'm sure she's going to give you an awesome present.

Emma: I can't wait to see her.

Greenlee: Ok, who's next?

Ryan: All right. Who do we got now?

Emma: "From Mommy."

Scott: You know, Mommy would probably want to be here when you open that.

Ryan: I think I saw her go upstairs.

A.J.: Open mine.

Ryan: Oh. There we go.

A.J.: Dad said he wanted to be here when you opened your present.

Marissa: You know what? I'll go find J.R. and Annie before they miss out on all the fun. Polly, have you seen my husband?

Polly: He was upstairs earlier.

Marissa: Was he alone? I'm sorry.

Polly: Oh, I don't blame you. Staff's not happy the other Mrs. C moved in.

Marissa: Ah, yeah. We have a water leak in the gatehouse to thank for that.

Polly: But the plumber fixed that two weeks ago.

Marissa: What?

Polly: And when old Hank fixes something, you're set for life.

J.R.: What are you doing here?

Annie: I came to splash some water on my face.

J.R.: We have bathrooms downstairs.

Annie: Yeah, but we also have a Greenlee downstairs.

J.R.: You're not welcome here.

Annie: Why does it freak you out so much?

J.R.: I'm not freaked out.

Annie: You really don't like me being anywhere near your bedroom, do you?

J.R.: I don't like you in the same area code.

Annie: Oh, yeah. If only that were true.

J.R.: Shouldn't you get back downstairs? Scott's going to start missing you.

Annie: I think we should be a little more worried about Marissa.

J.R.: Don't talk about my marriage. Marissa and I will be here long after Scott wises up and tosses you to the curb.

Annie: Why can't you just admit it? Every time you look at your plain Jane wife, you can't stop thinking about what we had.

J.R.: You think that I fantasize about you? You crazy, greedy, bloodsucking --

Annie: Hot, passionate, exciting --

A.J.: Daddy?

J.R.: I'll be right down. Oh, and you might want to go downstairs. It is your daughter's birthday.

Jesse: So I see you're still standing. Can the same be said for Dr. Hayward?

Angie: He's fine.

Jesse: No bloodshed?

Angie: Not even close.

Jesse: Good. So you took my suggestion and turned on the charm, did you?

Angie: You're going to be sorry you ever said that.

Jesse: Why? What do you mean?

Angie: Uh, you know, I think maybe we should find a place to sit down before I tell you.

Jesse: Ooh, I'm not going to like this, right?

Angie: Um -- no.

[Scott sighs]

Marissa: I need to talk to you.

Scott: What's wrong?

Marissa: Did you ever actually see the leak in the gatehouse?

Scott: What are you talking about?

Marissa: Polly told me that the plumber fixed it two weeks ago. Annie lied so you would move her back here to the main house.

Scott: I'm not that easily played, Marissa.

Marissa: She got you to invite her to stay here indefinitely, didn't she? Oh, my God. She even has you convinced that she cares about you.

Scott: Ok. Why don't you stop worrying so much about Annie and worry about --

Marissa: What, my husband?

Scott: I like you, Marissa. And I couldn't be sorrier about your marriage. But Annie's a fact of life around here, and you need to get used to that.

[Doorbell rings]

David: Please don't tell me J.R. has you playing doorman now.

Marissa: Your wife is inside.

David: Ok, I'm sorry, it's just I can't stand that you're here after what he did to you.

Marissa: Oh, God.

J.R.: Ahem! What are you doing here?

David: I just came by to wish Emma a happy birthday. How are you doing, A.J.?

A.J.: Good, Grandpa. Daddy was upstairs, just like you said.

David: Well, I assume the party's in there. You want to take me in, A.J.? Good.

Marissa: You ok?

J.R.: Yeah, I'm fine. You?

Marissa: Yeah, I'm just great.

David: Hey.

Greenlee: What are you doing here?

David: My daughter and my grandson live here.

Ryan: That's funny, I don't remember Annie putting you on the guest list.

David: Well, I just stopped by to see my family, and since I'm here, I thought I'd wish Emma a happy birthday. Emma. Hey.

Emma: Hi. Are those for me?

David: Who else?

[Ryan chuckles]

David: Well, this one is from me.

Emma: What about that one?

David: Well, this one was out on the front porch, ok? And it had your name on it.

Emma: It's from Erica!

Ryan: It was just sitting there outside, huh?

David: Yeah, that's right. Right there on the front porch.

Ryan: Right.

Emma: Mom, look what Dr. Hayward found outside.

Annie: David's here? Doesn't anyone have the sense not to show up?

Emma: Mom, it's from Erica!

Annie: No kidding. So Erica's back in town? What, is she going to pop out of the cake or something?

David: I didn't see her or her driver out there.

Ryan: She must have had the gift messengered.

David: To avoid the glare of the scandal, no doubt.

Ryan: No doubt. Well, I should call Jesse, because I know he's been looking for her.

Greenlee: Let me do it.

David: You really think that's necessary?

Greenlee: Well, they've been all over us at Fusion, insisting to let them know if we heard anything. I wouldn't want them to think we were withholding information, so --

David: I'll go with you.

Greenlee: No, I can handle it. I can handle it.

Marissa: Hey, I need to talk to you. It's really important.

David: Right now?

Marissa: Dad, can you help me?

David: Yeah. Look, I'm sorry. Of course. What is it?

Jesse: I left her a little love note for when she gets back.

Madison: Do you have any young children in your family?

Frankie: Some young boy cousins. Why?

Madison: Forget it.

Frankie: Oh, come on, now. Don't leave me hanging.

Madison: I need to find a gift for a 7-year-old girl, and I just -- I don't know what's appropriate for that age.

Frankie: Ryan's 7-year-old daughter? Would it maybe --

Madison: Ahem -- she's a great kid, ok?

[Frankie chuckles]

Madison: And I -- it doesn't have to be anything big. I just want it to be memorable.

Frankie: You know what? When I was 8 years old, I wanted a skateboard and a rocket ship that would take me to the moon.

Madison: Ha ha. Well, Emma doesn't quite strike me as the rocket ship type.

Frankie: Yeah. How about an Army tank then? Yeah. Sorry. That's all I got.

Madison: That's ok. I'll come up with something. Thanks.

Frankie: All right. Good luck.

Madison: "Birthday gift," "7-year-old girl." Oh! Oh! Shoot.

Angie: There I was going another round with the guy ready to pull my hair out, or his, when suddenly -- I invited David and Greenlee to dinner.

Jesse: You what?

Angie: It was all I could think of in the moment.

Jesse: Well, you're pretty brave. One of these knuckleheads is bad enough. You want to take them both on, alone? Whew.

Angie: Not exactly.

Jesse: Wait a minute -- what does that mean? What are you talking about?

Angie: Oh, baby, come on. I cannot break bread with that man without you not being there to keep me from throwing it at him.

Jesse: Angela, a whole dinner?

Angie: As opposed to what?

Jesse: Coffee to go, at the most.

Angie: Look, you are the one who told me to find another way. You planted the seed.

Jesse: I didn't expect that seed to jump up and bite me in the butt.

Angie: Honey, look, I cannot do this without you.

Jesse: Ok. Fine, ok. All right, I got your back. I'll be there for you. I'm bringing my Taser.

Angie: You really think he'll be that bad?

Jesse: Oh, I'm not bringing it for him, I'm bringing it for you.

Angie: Ugh.

David: [Sighs] I hope you're not going to ask me to be nice to the guy -- not after what he did to you.

Marissa: No, this isn't about J.R. -- directly, anyway. The thing is, I love J.R., and I love A.J., and I want our family to stay together, but there's just one obstacle.

David: The fact that your husband is a lying cheat? I'm sorry. What obstacle?

Marissa: Annie. If I can figure out how to handle her, then the rest will just fall into place.

David: You shouldn't have to handle anyone. He never should have slept with her in the first place.

Marissa: Ok, ok, ok, I just -- do you want to help me, or not?

David: Go on.

Marissa: The thing is, I'm not like her. I don't know how to fight someone like that. But you do.

David: What are you saying?

Marissa: I need you to show me what you know, so I can get rid of that bitch and save my marriage.

David: You may be more like me than you think.

Annie: Yeah. [Chuckles] I thought you did because of all those little candles on your head.

Marissa: So will you do it? Will you help me?

David: If you need me, I'm here.

A.J.: We're going to have cake.

David: That's awesome, A.J. Thanks. Call me when you're ready.

Marissa: Mm-hmm.

David: Greenlee?

Greenlee: Why'd you do it?

David: What?

Greenlee: Why did you bring the gift from Erica? You thought lying to everyone about a present she didn't leave would help?

David: No, I thought that Emma would enjoy the gift.

Greenlee: No, you thought it would get everyone off the track of looking for Erica. Oh, this whole nightmare is more out of control than ever.

David: It is not out of control.

Greenlee: Part of me thinks the easiest thing to do would be to --

David: What? What, you want to go to the police? Confess that we sabotaged that plane? You can't want to do that.

Greenlee: It wasn't supposed to take off, right?

David: Yeah, but who would believe us? Jesse? Ryan?

Emma: Daddy, where did Greenlee go?

Ryan: I don't know.

Emma: Can you check on her? 

Scott: You must be relieved to have Greenlee gone.

Annie: I don't know why she had to show up in the first place.

J.R.: Did you have a nice little chat with David?

Marissa: He's my father.

J.R.: Yeah, well, last time we talked about it, you wanted nothing to do with him.

Marissa: I guess I had a momentary lapse. You know how that is, right?

Annie: I can't tell you how much it meant to me, having the party here.

Scott: Looks like Emma had fun.

Annie: So much fun.

Scott: You? I know it got complicated with Greenlee.

Annie: I just needed a breather.

Scott: Where'd you go?

Annie: Just to splash water on my face. It did the trick.

J.R.: Tell me what I can do. Tell me how I can make this better.

Marissa: Make her disappear from our lives.

Annie: Oh, look. This one is from J.R., Marissa, and A.J.

Ryan: Huh. Right.

Annie: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: The paper --

Angie: I cannot believe that I invited Dr. Doom and his bride to dinner.

Jesse: What I can't believe is you dragging me along to suffer with you.

Angie: Well, you're the one who said kill him with kindness. Look, I just need you to watch him, because you know how David sets me off -- with nothing more than a look.

Jesse: Yeah, I know that look. I've been there.

Angie: Do you have that Taser handy?

Madison: That much? Thank you, anyway. [Sighs]

[Phone rings]

Madison: Fusion. That's right, Mr. Riley. The cocktail party at the hotel is still scheduled for tomorrow. Ok, we'll see you there. Fusion hospitality suite -- no one there until tomorrow. One empty bed for me tonight.

Angie: Look, all you need to do is to keep David's wine glass full, and I'll keep the conversation on the hospital.

Jesse: Aw, shucks. And I had this whole list of subjects prepared to conversate on with that fool.

Angie: All right, sweetie, listen -- listen. The goal is, is to get on board with what needs to be done here. Like the digital upgrade to our computers that he cancelled midstream.

Jesse: Well, you just work your mojo, baby. You'll get what you want.

Angie: Oh, yeah, and you just keep pouring that wine.

Man: Chief Hubbard!

Angie: What have we got?

E.M.T.: This is Ramón. He's febrile. Elevated pulse and labored breathing.

Ramón: I saw white, like a star. I was dizzy.

Angie: Was that before or after you fell? Ramón? Ramón, can you hear me? Listen, if he suffered these symptoms before the fall, then we need to find out why. Get him into isolation and page Dr. Hogate. Mask, gown, and gloves.

Jesse: Isolation? For a bike crash?

Angie: Yeah, well, we don't know. We need to be safe, just until we know what we're dealing with.

[Monitor beeps steadily]

Angie: He's not breathing. He's not moving air. Get me a mask and gloves.

Nurse: There's none. I'll be right back.

Angie: His airway's constricted. Listen, there's no time. I'm going to have to intubate. Don't worry, Ramón. We're going to take good care of you, ok? Don't you worry. Get those masks and gloves!

David: You're worried about Erica. I get that. I am, too.

Greenlee: You don't seem worried.

David: Well, that's because I'm at least trying to get more information.

Greenlee: Without telling anyone that a plane may have crashed.

David: I can't stop you from wanting to tell anyone.

Greenlee: No, you can't.

David: All I can do is ask you to trust me.

Ryan: Everything ok out here?

David: Yeah, everything's fine. I was just telling Greenlee that I thought she was right to want to call Jesse. Right? I mean, obviously, we all want to find Erica.

Ryan: Yeah. So did you call Jesse?

David: No, because I was also saying that I think we should probably talk to Fusion's corporate attorney first, right? And that that is something we should do right away.

Ryan: Really? So you're leaving, right now?

Greenlee: Yes.

Ryan: Don't you want to say good-bye to Emma first?

Greenlee: Tell her how sorry I am and that I will really make it up to her. I promise.
